From the Warning-Sarcasm Desk: Confessions Of A Deprogrammed Trump Supporter – by Matthew Ehret – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/confessions-deprogrammed-trump-supporter – “The brilliant Steve Hassan even recognized this reality in his CNN interview when he said that ‘the bottom line is all of America needs deprogramming because we’ve all been negatively influenced by Donald Trump.’.. …According to the WEF’s Great Reset website global CO2 output collapsed by over 7% during the 12 months of global COVID-19 shutdowns… which means the COVID-19 is more of a blessing than many dim witted selfish nationalists who like owning things realize…So what if the world population will contract under the shutdown of the world economy under COVID lockdowns? And so what if we lose our capacity to support industrial civilization through the imposition of global green energy grid?.. Didn’t the late great Maurice Strong (who was WEF Executive Director and father of the Great Reset), ask the question in 1991: ‘What if a small group of world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the Earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? The group’s conclusion is ‘no’. The rich countries won’t do it. They won’t change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?’

Professor Calls For Elimination Of Republican Party; Purging “Nazified” People From Congress, Universities, & “Regular Jobs” – by Jonathan Turley – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/professor-calls-elimination-republican-party-purging-nazified-people-congress – “The media has been airing discussion of hosts and leading figures like Katie Couric on “deprogramming ” Trump supporters or treating Trump supporters as a cult, including a CNN interview with an actual “cult expert.”  Since that would include over 70 million Trump voters, the hyperbolic language can be dismissed as just more examples of our rage-filled political environment. After all, a few days after the election, a law professor declared that even questioning the Biden electoral victory was tantamount to being a holocaust denier. One professor however has taken this call even further in declaring such supporters are worse than the Nazis and heralding the need for the same type of purging seen with the Nuremberg trials, including the apparent elimination of the Republican Party. Smith College Professor Loretta Ross, who teaches women’s and gender studies, rejected calls for unity and instead called for punitive action against supporters in Congress, universities, and “regular jobs.”.. Professor Ross shows no concern for free speech or academic freedom as she calls for identifying and condemning anyone who is viewed as complicit with Trump over the last four years so that they can be ‘treated with the same public condemnation that the Nazis received after World War II.’

Peter Schiff: Biden Takes The Helm Of A Sinking Shiphttps://www.zerohedge.com/markets/peter-schiff-biden-takes-helm-sinking-ship – ” ‘If the stock market gains were really attributable to Donald Trump’s policies, and Joe Biden is already unwinding those policies and reversing as many as he can by executive order, why are all the stock markets making record highs? To me, that shows you that the stock market couldn’t care less about Biden being president, because it didn’t matter that Trump was president. This stock market rally that Donald Trump took credit for was not the result of Donald Trump’s policies.’.. ‘Wall Street knows that. And they know that despite the change in the White House, there is no change at the Federal Reserve. Fed policy is going to be consistent. It is going to remain the same. And I think Joe Biden sent a message to Wall Street of the continuity by nominating Janet Yellen, who was the head of the Federal Reserve, to kind of cement in the minds of the markets, or the participants in the markets, that it is business as usual at the Fed — that they will keep in printing money, they will keep interest rates artificially low, in order to sustain asset bubbles. And that is what the stock market is celebrating.’.. Looking back at the Trump era, it’s pretty clear he failed to “Make America Great Again.” To do so would have required stepping on a lot of political landmines while dealing with the deep-rooted problems of Social Security, Medicare and the national debt – the so-called third rail of politics… Trump wasn’t willing to do the painful things necessary to address the underlying problems facing the US. He wasn’t willing to take steps that would have tanked the stock market. But as Peter says, the stock market needed to go down despite the short-term pain it would have caused… ‘Part of the solution is allowing these assets to reprice to more reflect their actual value rather than the bubble that the Fed had been inflating. We need real economic growth, not another bubble. And unfortunately, that’s all we got under Trump.’.. And now the markets expect the same thing to continue under President Biden. Peter said that’s where he thinks the markets and the country are wrong… ‘I think that there is a false sense of confidence that this can continue, whereas I think we’re nearing the end.’

Americans Are Suffering Through The Most Painful Economic Crisis Since The Great Depression – by Michael Snyder – https://www.zerohedge.com/personal-finance/americans-are-suffering-through-most-painful-economic-crisis-great-depression – “I warned that an economic collapse was coming, and an economic collapse is exactly what we got.  2020 was a “personal financial disaster” for 55 percent of all Americans, approximately 12 million U.S. renters are “at least $5,850 behind in rent and utilities payments”, the Aspen Institute is projecting that up to 40 million people could be facing eviction when the rent and mortgage moratoriums finally end, and more than 70 million new claims for unemployment benefits have been filed since the COVID pandemic began… At this point, the number of new claims for unemployment benefits has been above 695,000 for 44 weeks in a row… That is starting to come close to a full year… If that does not qualify as a “collapse”, then you are probably using a completely different definition of the word than I am using.”

The Despicables – by Eric Peters – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/despicables – “One of the nuggets to be mined from the wholesale cancelling of politically unapproved speech by the Tech Oligarchs – soon to be empowered by government oligarchs, if the “kraken” doesn’t somehow prevent it – is how obvious their pathological dishonesty has become… Amazon, Facebook and Twitter have asserted that, as private businesses, they have the right to decide with whom to do business – and not do business with. But do they feel the same way about the right of other private businesses to practice what they preach?.. Only when it conforms with what they preach… Consider the religious tenets of the Sickness Cult; specifically, the dogma that requires all to wear a Face Burqa within a privately owned business, even if the owner isn’t religious and isn’t interested in proselytizing to his customers, much less insisting they show respect for a religion he doesn’t subscribe to They do have every right. It’s despicable – in the manner of “No Colored” signs on the door of businesses back in the ’50s – but they have every right as privately owned businesses to do business with whomever they wish, according to whatever terms they wish – so long as people are free to  take their business elsewhere… Aye, there’s the rub… These Despicables want to enjoy the right to cancel, close – and decree – to others while at the same time denying the right of any other privately owned business to set its own terms and conditions.” (underlined emphasis added)

Academic Study Finds Big-Tech Elites Are In Their “Own Class”, Different To Rest Of Humanity“Our research contributes to closing a research gap in societies with rising inequalities,” – by Steve Watson – https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/academic-study-finds-big-tech-elites-are-their-own-class-different-rest-humanity“Our research contributes to closing a research gap in societies with rising inequalities,”  note the authors of the study from two German universities and the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies in New York… The research centres around analysing language used in close to 50,000 tweets and other online statements by 100 of the richest tech-elites as listed by Forbes… The researchers conclude that big-tech elites such as Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates display a ‘meritocratic’ worldview, meaning they do not see wealth as a source of their influence or success, but rather believe their innate abilities and more altruistic beliefs have enabled them to achieve power… The researchers found that language used by the tech-elites regularly includes words such as ‘merit’, ‘distinct’, ‘excellent’, ‘value’, ‘virtue’, ‘advantage’, ‘superiority’, ‘worth’, ‘perfect’, ‘important’ and ‘significant’.The researchers also note that: ‘The tech elite may be thought of as a ‘class for itself’ in Marx’s sense – a social group that shares particular views of the world, which in this case means meritocratic, missionary, and inconsistent democratic ideology.’.. The researchers noted that the study had limitations, ironically owing to the fact that they were not able to access language used by all the top 100 tech-elites because Twitter is banned in China… The Twitter accounts they were able to access could also be managed by PR professionals and are obviously public projections of how the tech elites want to be thought of by the public at large, therefore the language used may be ‘strategic’.”

The Harbinger? – by Sven Henrich – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/harbinger – “Record market prices again on Inauguration day as equities continue on the Stretched path… In a world that is uniformly bullish-oriented in the firm belief ( and so far correct belief) that coming inflation, ongoing central bank central bank intervention and further stimulus programs will keep the record asset price inflation machine going I want to offer a little thought experiment: What if everything is the same bubble and if so is there a harbinger of trouble on the horizon?.. Another caveat: Market valuations have again reached never before seen levels of asset price disconnect from the underlying size of the economy: 192.9% (of GDP)… All of this is ignored by participants and seemingly justified by low rates and ongoing interventions, the risk free rate they call it…Yet despite all the new highs headlines yesterday there are some subtle cracks emerging. Both small caps and $DJIA are struggling to make new highs versus the recent highs… So far it continues to work. As we saw in 2018, which saw prices far less disconnected from the economy and charts less disconnected from their moving averages versus now, the incessant optimism was met with a snap correction of size that produced technical reconnects that ended up being a buying opportunity… This here may turn out the same, and if so, Bitcoin may have been the harbinger to come… Only time will tell. But as long as the .236 fib holds on the $BTC chart then this reversal may just prove to be another short term pullback, but if doesn’t $BTC may find itself confronted with a much larger corrective risk path ahead, including perhaps a retest of the previous highs of 2017. The implications for equities? Stay tuned.”

“Gross Interference”: Russia Livid That US Embassy Posted Times & Locations Of Navalny Protests – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/gross-interference-russia-livid-us-embassy-posted-times-locations-navalny-protests – “Earlier on Saturday as pro-Navalny protests began “sweeping across Russia” – as CNN dubiously put it (which have not numbered more than in the thousands in any one place) – we asked the question: are we witnessing the start of a manufactured ‘color revolution’ targeting Putin and the ruling government under the banner of the Navalny ‘nerve agent’ saga?.. Of course, it’s too early to tell. But already on ‘day one’ of major protests across several Russian cities the US Embassy in Moscow is highlighting the protests and their locations on its website. While ostensibly the embassy is directing citizens to “avoid” these demonstrations, given the possibility of violence, the State Department-sponsored public notice lists in surprisingly specific detail the location and times of a dozen protests in large cities.”

DATA EXPERT: 200,000 Pennsylvania Ballots Were Modified After Election – A Sampling of 100,000 Arizona Ballots Show ‘Material Amount’ Aren’t Even Real People – by Joe Hoft – https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/01/data-expert-200000-pennsylvania-ballots-modified-election-sampling-100000-arizona-ballots-show-material-amount-arent-even-real-people/ – “There was fraud everywhere in the 2020 election and to not address this is to destroy the future of our children while stomping on the graves of those who died for this country... We’ve pointed out literally a million invalid ballots which were included in the ‘certified’ results in the 2020 election in three states alone… The Democrats want to punish you for discussing this massive fraud and the Republicans want to say it didn’t happen.  What is wrong with this picture?.. Now today, we have a copy of the letter from data analyst Bobby Piton to the Arizona legislature in December.  Remember, Piton testified in front of the Arizona legislature about the blatant fraud in that state and bet his life on the results… He pointed out that more that 50% of a sample of 1,000 voters in the 2020 election were not real people.  The sample came from a list of 100,000 voters in the 2020 election in Arizona. Pitton also notes that 200,000 Pennsylvania ballots were edited the day after the election.  The letter from Bobby Piton to the Arizona legislature is below…”

Is “Stakeholder Capitalism” Newspeak for Economic Fascism? – by Mark Hornshaw – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/01/is-stakeholder-capitalism-newspeak-for-economic-fascism.html – “Leaders of the World Economic Forum are seeking to implement a Great Reset of capitalism whereby “global stakeholders” cooperate to achieve “shared goals.” In the true spirit of not letting a crisis go to waste, they see the COVID-19 pandemic as presenting a unique opportunity to push their agenda… ‘The level of cooperation and ambition this implies is unprecedented. But it is not some impossible dream,’ World Economic Forum Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab recently observed. ‘In fact, one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles.’.. Of course, when they say “our lifestyles” they mean your lifestyle, not their own. Their preferred vehicle for achieving their goals is other people’s businesses. In short, what they want is for private businesses to serve the interests of their own curated list of stakeholders rather than (as they see it) concentrating on returning profits to business owners. They want governments to pass laws and tax regimes to cajole businesses towards their favored ends. Since this arrangement still involves a modicum of private ownership of the means of production, they call it “Stakeholder Capitalism.” ”

Klaus Schwab’s “Magic Money Tree” Prediction is Coming True – by Joseph Jankowski – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/01/klaus-schwabs-magic-money-tree-prediction-is-coming-true.html – “Rogelio Linares, an Atlanta native and Democratic canvasser during the runoff elections, told Mediaite that he feels “like shit” over the fact that the next stimulus payment may not be as large as he was promised and called it “a betrayal of the working class.”.. ‘I was on the ground and I knocked over 1,000 doors,’ he said. ‘At the doors, I was literally telling people, ‘$2K checks, you can rely on this. I’m a man of principle and morals and I feel like shit. I lied to them. I was lying to them the whole time. I was lying to people that were relying on this. At the time I didn’t know it was a lie. But that was not the reality.’.. “This is pretty much a betrayal of the working class … I know people are pissed off about it,” he added… In his book titled, COVID-19: The Great Reset (Published July 2020), World Economic Forum globalist Klaus Schwab predicted that the effects of the initial stimulus efforts by governments to keep both individuals and business afloat in the aftermath of the unprecedented lockdowns would create a scenario where the public would keep elected officials under “fierce and relentless” pressure to continue the schemes of helicopter money well into the future… ‘The idea is appealing and realizable, but it contains an issue of social expectations and political control,” Schwab says in his book about printing money and giving it to the public. ‘Once citizens realize that money can be found on a ‘magic money tree,’ elected politicians will be under fierce and relentless public pressure to create more and more, which is when the issue of inflation kicks in.’ ”

‘Catastrophically wrong’: German court declares regional lockdown UNCONSTITUTIONAL in ‘politically explosive’ decisionhttps://www.rt.com/news/513443-german-court-covid-lockdown-unconstitutional/ – “A German district court has declared a strict lockdown imposed by the government of the central state of Thuringia last spring unconstitutional, as it acquitted a person accused of violating it… A trivial case about a man violating strict German lockdown rules by celebrating a birthday with his friends has ended up in a decision the German media described as “politically explosive.” A district court in the city of Weimar did not just acquit the defendant but also stated that the authorities themselves breached Germany’s basic law… Thuringia’s spring lockdown was a “catastrophically wrong political decision with dramatic consequences for almost all areas of people’s lives,” the court said, justifying its decision. It particularly condemned a restriction limiting private gatherings to the members of one household and one person outside of it.”

Switzerland will hold a referendum on whether to strip the government of its power to impose lockdown measures – by Ross Ibbetson – https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9151963/Switzerland-hold-referendum-strip-government-lockdown-powers.html – “Switzerland will hold a referendum on whether to strip the government of its power to impose lockdown measures… Campaigners handed in a petition with 86,000 signatures on Wednesday, well above the 50,000 required to trigger a nationwide vote under the country’s system of direct democracy… The Covid-19 Act, passed in September last year, has infuriated the famously liberal Swiss as it grants central government unchecked powers to impose indefinite rules to stop the spread of the virus… But it could now be repealed in June, when the referendum is scheduled, making Switzerland the first and only country to allow its citizens a direct vote on the swingeing lockdown restrictions faced across the world.”

ICE Agents Ordered to Free All Illegal Aliens in Custody: ‘Release Them All’ – by John Binder – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/01/23/ice-agents-ordered-free-all-illegal-aliens-custody-release-them-all/ – “An internal January 21 ICE memo, independently reviewed by Breitbart News and first reported by Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, orders agents to “stop all removals,” including land and air deportations… In addition, the memo tells agents that “all cases” of detainees in ICE custody are now to be considered “no significant likelihood of removal in foreseeable future” — suggesting all detainees will need to be released… ‘Release them all, immediately,’ the ICE official wrote to staff in the memo. Typically, if detainees do not have sponsors in the United States, agents can hold an individual in their custody. The memo, though, states that is no longer the case and that even detainees without sponsors must be released… It is unclear if ICE is currently carrying out the mass release of all 14,195 detainees in its custody, 71.45 percent of whom are convicted criminals or have pending criminal charges. These detainees are currently held in approximately 138 facilities across the United States.”

Biden Admin Previews Fight Against ‘Serious Threat’ of ‘Domestic Violent Extremism’ – by Charlie Spiering – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/01/22/biden-admin-previews-fight-against-serious-threat-of-domestic-violent-extremism/ – President Joe Biden has asked the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to begin enhanced assessments of the threat posed by “domestic violent extremism,” according to the White House… ‘The January 6th assault on the Capitol and the tragic deaths and destruction that occurred underscored what we have long known: The rise of domestic violent extremism is a serious and growing national security threat,’ White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced at a press briefing Friday afternoon… Psaki said that Biden had tasked the ODNI to request a ‘comprehensive threat assessment’ of domestic violent extremism, including ways to strengthen government capabilities to monitor the threat… ‘The Biden administration will confront this threat with the necessary recourses and resolve,’ she said… ‘This considered NSC convened process will focus on addressing evolving threats, radicalization, the role of social media, opportunities to improve information sharing, operation responses, and more,’ she concluded.”

Meet the mayors pushing for guaranteed income in 30 cities across the country – by Abigail Johnson Hess – https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/19/the-mayors-piloting-guaranteed-income-programs-across-the-us.html – “…political philosophers from Montesque to Thomas Paine also penned their support for what is often referred to as “universal basic income.” And the idea was recently re-popularized by former Democratic presidential candidate and current New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang. However, King stands out as the most visible influence on Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, a coalition of 30 mayors from Texas to Minnesota, who support direct, recurring cash payments for citizens and are starting guaranteed income programs of their own… ‘This Covid crisis which swept our nation — whether you’re rural, urban or suburban, whether you’re White, Black, Spanish or Native American — has meant that we finally saw people, especially those in the service industry, that we’ve been able to ignore for a long time,’ says Patterson-Howard. ‘We need everyone and we have to find ways to move forward together. I think this is an opportunity for us to show that we not only see people, but we understand their needs. [Guaranteed income] is a way that we are going to speak to that need in a way that is unapologetic and is in a way that says ‘We respect you, and we trust you, and we are here to support and empower you.’ ”

The Vanishing Act That is Russian Aerospace – by Reuben F. Johnson – https://freebeacon.com/national-security/the-vanishing-act-that-is-russian-aerospace/ – “A retired U.S. government analyst of Russia’s military explained to the Free Beacon that ‘we are witnessing the collapse and selling off of Russia’s onetime nationwide aerospace and defense-industrial empire. This is why, when Putin gives his once-a-year address to the joint session of the Russian parliament, he talks almost exclusively about nuclear weapons… Moreover, these are not just nuclear weapons of the type we are familiar with, but literally those built solely for some ‘doomsday’ scenario,’ the analyst said. ‘This is because piece-by-piece the industry that used to build Russia’s conventional, non-nuclear weaponry is disappearing and his nuclear forces will end [up] being the only military power he has left. A colossally dangerous scenario.’ ”

EU powergrab: Brussels plots to launch digital currency in chilling parallel to China plan – by Ciaran McGrath – https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1386893/eu-news-digital-euro-electronic-currency-ecb-yuan-china-xi-jinping – “EUROPEAN Union chiefs and the European Central Bank (ECB) are plotting to launch the euro as a digital currency in a move which has striking similarities with China’s plan for a digital Yuan – which critics have suggested will make it strengthen President Xi Jinping’s grasp on power… The has confirmed it is to work closely with the on the technical implementation of the proposal. The bank has already having completed a public hearing to consider the benefits of a digital central bank currency for the … Christina Lagarde, the ECB’s President, is widely expected to outline the plans at a press conference tomorrow… Up to now, discussions have centred on the economic aspects – but now it seems the ECB is keen to get down to brass tacks… In a statement issued this week, the ECB said: ‘In view of digitisation, the rapid changes in the payment traffic landscape and the emergence of crypto assets, the ECB is examining the possibility of issuing a digital euro as a supplement to cash and the payment solutions provided by the private sector.’ ”

Biden releases national virus strategy, requires mask use for travel – by Associated Press & Nexstar Media Wire – https://www.wane.com/community/health/coronavirus/biden-releases-national-virus-strategy-requires-mask-use-for-travel/ – “As the U.S. enters “what may well be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus,” President Joe Biden is putting forth a national COVID-19 strategy to ramp up vaccinations and testing, reopen schools and businesses and increase the use of masks — including a requirement that they be worn for travel… Biden also will address inequities in hard-hit minority communities as he signs 10 pandemic-related executive orders on Thursday, his second day in office… ‘We need to ask average Americans to do their part,’ said Jeff Zients, the White House official directing the national response. ‘Defeating the virus requires a coordinated nationwide effort.’.. The U.S. mask order for travel being implemented by Biden will apply to airports and planes, ships, intercity buses, trains and public transportation. Travelers from abroad must furnish a negative COVID-19 test before departing for the U.S. and quarantine upon arrival. Biden has already mandated masks on federal property… Although airlines, Amtrak and other transport providers now require masks, Biden’s order makes it a federal mandate, leaving little wiggle room for passengers tempted to argue about their rights.”

The New Domestic War on Terror Is Coming – No speculation is needed. Those who wield power are demanding it. The only question is how much opposition they will encounter – by Glenn Greenwald – https://www.globalresearch.ca/new-domestic-war-terror-coming/5734906 – “The last two weeks have ushered in a wave of new domestic police powers and rhetoric in the name of fighting “terrorism” that are carbon copies of many of the worst excesses of the first War on Terror that began nearly twenty years ago. This trend shows no sign of receding as we move farther from the January 6 Capitol riot. The opposite is true: it is intensifying… We have witnessed an orgy of censorship from Silicon Valley monopolies with calls for far more aggressive speech policing, a visibly militarized Washington, D.C. featuring a non-ironically named “Green Zone,” vows from the incoming president and his key allies for a new anti-domestic terrorism bill, and frequent accusations of “sedition,” “treason,” and “terrorism” against members of Congress and citizens. This is all driven by a radical expansion of the meaning of “incitement to violence.” It is accompanied by viral-on-social-media pleas that one work with the FBI to turn in one’s fellow citizens (See Something, Say Something!) and demands for a new system of domestic surveillance… Underlying all of this are immediate insinuations that anyone questioning any of this must, by virtue of these doubts, harbor sympathy for the Terrorists and their neo-Nazi, white supremacist ideology. Liberals have spent so many years now in a tight alliance with neocons and the CIA that they are making the 2002 version of John Ashcroft look like the President of the (old-school) ACLU.

Class Warfare: Pupils in Anchorage Will Kneel in Front of Their Chairs, No Recess – by Suzanne Downing – https://anti-empire.com/class-warfare-pupils-in-anchorage-will-kneel-in-front-of-their-chairs-no-recess/ – “Pre-K–2, K–6, self-contained special needs programs, and the Whaley School are returning to in-person learning at Anchorage School District classes on Tuesday, Jan. 19… Parents who viewed the classroom their students will be returning to expressed shock: All desks have been removed. Students will kneel on gardening pads and use chairs as their desks for 5.5 hours… Rather than lockers, they will have to bring a five-gallon utility bucket to store their lunch, jackets, and supplies in. The parents were told all students will be masked over their nose and mouth… ‘We wouldn’t allow terrorists to be treated like this,’ said one concerned parent, who asked to be kept anonymous… The new classroom design represents one solution to keeping children apart so they do not spread the COVID-19 virus… Some of these young students have never been to school before, so they may not see the situation as abnormal. Anchorage schools have been closed due to the coronavirus since last March.”

Biden says death toll from pandemic likely will top 500,000 next month, says it will take months ‘for us to turn things around’ – by Amy Goldstein, Isaac Stanley-Becker and Laura Meckler – https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/biden-coronavirus-executive-actions/2021/01/21/9a4ab954-5b56-11eb-8bcf-3877871c819d_story.html – ” ‘We didn’t get into this mess overnight,’ (Biden) said in remarks at the White House. He said it would take months to get Americans vaccinated. ‘We will get through this. We will defeat this pandemic.’.. On his second day in office Biden signed an additional 10 executive orders, plus presidential memorandums, dealing with many aspects of the public health crisis the new president has defined as his top priority… They include the creation of a Pandemic Testing Board that can spur a “surge” in the capacity for coronavirus tests. Other orders will foster research into new treatments for covid-19, the disease caused by the virus; strengthen the collection and analysis of data to shape the government’s response to the crisis; and direct the federal occupational safety agency to release and enforce guidelines to protect workers from getting infected… The 198-page plan released Thursday is far from a federal takeover of the nation’s efforts to cope with the worst health calamity in a century. Yet it represents a pronounced shift away from the Trump administration’s deference to each state to design its own plan for coronavirus testing and carry out other elements of its response.”

Disgraced Former CIA Chief John Brennan: Biden White House Will Use Homeland Security to Crush Trump ‘Insurgency’ – by https://bigleaguepolitics.com/disgraced-former-cia-chief-john-brennan-biden-white-house-will-use-homeland-security-to-crush-trump-insurgency/ – “Disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan is promising a Big Brother crackdown against Trump supporters throughout society following the successful installation of the Biden regime by the deep state… Brennan made the psychopathic, authoritarian declaration during an appearance on MSNBC… ‘This is the most relaxed I’ve been in the course of the many inaugurations I’ve watched,’ Brennan said, reveling in the fact that he got away with all of his crimes without repercussions… Brennan is laying the groundwork to treat President Trump’s supporters like ISIS militants, which Democrat officials have been openly pining for many years to accomplish. He named ‘religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, and even libertarians as the type of groups that will be targeted, profiled and ultimately deprived of their 1st Amendment rights during the Biden administration… ‘I really do think that the law enforcement, Homeland Security, intelligence, and even defense officials are doing everything possible to root out what seems to be a very, very serious and insidious threat to our democracy and our republic,’ he said.” (underlined emphasis added)

Fauci: COVID Vaccine May Become Mandatory – by Dr. Joseph Mercola – https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/fauci-covid-19-vaccine-may-become-mandatory/ – “Story at-a-glance: ● According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, some institutions will undoubtedly require employees to be vaccinated, adding that it’s “quite possible” the vaccine will be required for overseas travel. ● The COVID-19 vaccine is still in the experimental stage as they have not completed stage 3 clinical trials yet. The mRNA technology used in these vaccines is also experimental, and the sheer speed at which the vaccines have been developed and tested precludes us from knowing much about their side effects, especially in the long term. ● As of Dec. 18, 2020, the adverse event rate in the U.S. was 2.79%. This means your risk of harm from the vaccine is far greater than your risk of dying from COVID-19, which has an overall noninstitutionalized infection fatality rate of just 0.26%. ● If an experimental vaccine were to be mandated, it would set a frightening precedent and pave the way for all sorts of nonconsensual medical experimentation on the general public, going forward. ● The COVID-19 vaccines are not being evaluated for their ability to actually prevent infection and transmission of the virus. And, if the vaccine cannot reduce infection, hospitalizations or deaths, then it cannot create the vaccine-acquired herd immunity required to end the pandemic.”

Retired General McChrystal Compares MAGA Protesters to Al-Qaeda – Claims America headed for a “homegrown insurgency”. Left unsaid is that these call for a McChrystal-style counter-insurgency- by Rachel Sharp – https://anti-empire.com/retired-general-mcchrystal-compares-maga-protesters-to-al-qaeda-claims-america-headed-for-homegrown-insurgency/ – “Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal has compared the MAGA riot to the evolution of Al-Qaeda saying in both instances people followed a ‘powerful leader’ who ‘justified their violence’, as he warned America is headed for a homegrown insurgency… McChrystal, the former commander of American troops in Afghanistan, said there are terrifying parallels between the birth of the terrorist group responsible for the September 11 terrorist attacks and the violent siege on the US Capitol last week that left five dead and sent shockwaves around the world… Donald Trump has given his supporters ‘legitimacy to become even more radical’, he told Yahoo News, with his Stop the Steal rhetoric now a radical rallying cry similar to the Lost Cause adopted by the Southerners in the American Civil War… McChrystal, who was fired by President Barack Obama after he made disparaging remarks about him and then-Vice President Joe Biden, warned that now ‘the fabric of something very dangerous has been woven’, the consequences will continue long after Trump leaves office.”

Oregon Considering Bill for Emergency Seizure of Private Property – by Logan Washburn – https://rfangle.com/politics/oregon-considering-bill-for-emergency-seizure-of-private-property/ – “The Oregon state legislature is currently considering a bill which would allow for the Governor to seize, use, or possess any private property during a state of emergency… HB-2238 is supposedly meant to clarify the “Governor’s authority to use property during an emergency.” There are already provisions in place to allow for limited use of private property by the state government, but this bill seeks to drastically expand these. As proposed in HB-2238, ‘Whenever the Governor has declared a state of emergency, the Governor may issue, amend and enforce rules and orders to: 1) Control, restrict and regulate by rationing, freezing, use of quotas, prohibitions on shipments, price fixing, allocation or other means, the use, sale or distribution of food, feed, fuel, clothing and other commodities, materials, goods and services; 2) Prescribe and direct activities in connection with use, conservation, salvage and prevention of waste of materials, services and facilities, including, but not limited to, production, transportation, power and communication facilities training, and supply of labor, utilization of industrial plants, health and medical care, nutrition, housing, rehabilitation, education, welfare, child care, recreation, consumer protection and other essential civil needs; and 3) Take any other action, including through the seizure, use or possession of any real or personal property…’ ”

FinCEN’s Crypto Surveillance Rule Violates the US Constitution – Proposals requiring crypto companies to report transactions amount to “mass surveillance” and flout the Fourth Amendment. – by Marta Belcher – https://www.coindesk.com/fincens-crypto-surveillance-rule-violates-us-constitution – “In the late afternoon on the Friday before Christmas, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) proposed a regulation introducing data collection and reporting requirements for cryptocurrency. FinCEN gave the public only 15 days to comment, over the holidays, instead of the usual 60 days. This was a clear attempt to push through a midnight regulation without giving the public time to respond, and it backfired. Despite the short timeline, roughly 7,500 people and entities submitted comments decrying the proposal, the most FinCEN has received on any proposed rulemaking. The comments on this proposal constitute nearly 70% of all comments FinCEN has received on all rule-makings since 2008 combined.”

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov: Saying Election Rigged ‘Is Not Protected Speech’ – by Nate Church – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/01/17/pennsylvania-lt-gov-saying-election-rigged-is-not-protected-speech/ – ” ‘This idea that saying that Pennsylvania was rigged, or that we were trying to “steal the election” — that’s a lie,’ Fetterman told The Hill in a video interview from which a clip was tweeted on Friday morning. ‘And that — you do not have the right — that is not protected speech,’ he continued… ‘The second those tweets went up, they should have been deleted,’ Fetterman said of President Trump’s Twitter account; a rallying point for his supporters and consistent sticking-point for his detractors. Trump frequently questioned the legitimacy of the 2020 Presidential election via his personal account and continues legal pursuit of investigations into what he and his team believe to be extensive voter fraud.”

COVID 19 – Evidence Of Global Fraudhttps://in-this-together.com/covid-19-evidence-of-global-fraud/ – “COVID 19, and the subsequent governmental responses, appear to be part of an international conspiracy to commit fraud. It seems there is no evidence that a virus called SARS-CoV-2 causes a disease called COVID 19… Sometimes you have to go with your gut. I am not an expert in genetics and, as ever, stand to be corrected. However my attention was drawn to some research published by the Spanish medical journal D-Salud-Discovery.  Their advisory board of eminently qualified physicians and scientists lends further credibility to their research. Their claim is astounding… The genetic primers and probes used in RT-PCR tests to identify SARS-CoV-2 do not target anything specific. I followed the search techniques outlined in this English translation of their report and can corroborate the accuracy of their claims about the nucleotide sequences listed in the World Health Organisations protocols. You can do the same.” – Comment: A comprehensive review of what’s known about the “reality” of the SARS-CoV2 “virus” and the PCR testing

PsyOp Revealed, DC Prepares for Large-Scale War – by Alexandra Bruce – https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/psyop-revealed-dc-prepares-for-large-scale-war/ – “I don’t pretend to know what’s happening in our war against the “Invisible Enemy” but I am guilty of having posted videos by people who DO claim to know… Saturday was the day of the backlash against people like Juan O Savin, Simon Parkes and Steve Pieczenik by people like Steve Quayle, Mike Adams and even Stewart Swerdlow… Mike Adams now claims to know the real identity and the CIA badge number of Juan O Savin. Like others, Adams suggests that these “feelgood” videos that I’ve been sharing are CIA/Deep State counterintelligence ops aimed at Trump supporters to lull them into a false sense of security… Only a handful of people actually know what’s going on in DC. DoD Secretary, Chris Miller knows. The President knows. Pete Gaynor, who is currently the Acting chief of both FEMA and DHS, he knows.”

Are You Ready for Total (Ideological) War? – by C.J. Hopkins – https://consentfactory.org/2021/01/11/are-you-ready-for-total-ideological-war/ – “So, welcome to 2021! If last week was any indication, it is going to be quite an exciting year. It is going to be the year in which GloboCap reminds everyone who is actually in charge and restores “normality” throughout the world, or at least attempts to restore “normality,” or the “New Normality,” or the “Great Normal Reset,” or “The New Normal War on Domestic Terror” … or whatever they eventually decide to call it… In any event, whatever they call it, GloboCap is done playing grab-ass. They have had it with all this “populism” malarkey that has been going on for the last four years. Yes, that’s right, the party is over, you Russian-backed white supremacist terrorists! You Trump-loving, anti-mask grandmother killers! You anti-vax, election-fraud-conspiracy theorists! You deviants who refuse to follow orders, wear your damn masks, vote for who they tell you, and believe whatever completely nonsensical official propaganda they pour into your heads!”
