Border Crisis Update: 80% of Girls and Women Migrants Raped, Baby Tossed in River, and Migrants Held Under a Bridge – by Ben Swann, Post MIllennial, CBS News and Project Veritas – https://needtoknow.news/2021/04/border-crisis-update-80-of-girls-and-women-migrants-raped-baby-tossed-in-river-and-migrants-held-under-a-bridge/ “US Border Patrol rescued a 6-month-old baby from the Rio Grande River after human traffickers threw the baby into the water from their raft. This after having assaulted the little girl’s mother and broken her leg along the journey. The mother reportedly paid $3,500 to traffickers to get her and her baby across the border. There were 67 adults and 150 children on the raft… Several migrant children have drowned trying to cross the Rio Grande in response to Biden’s invitation to surge the border… Post Millennial: https://thepostmillennial.com/border-patrol-rescues-6-month-old-baby-after-she-was-tossed-into-the-rio-grande-by-human-traffickers… Video showed two toddlers being tossed over a wall by smugglers and abandoned on the US side of the southern border in New Mexico.”

Canada Sends COVID Positive Travelers to ‘Internment’ Facilities (the Canadians call them “Quarantine Hotels”) (w/Video report by Tucker Carlson, 12 min) – by Patrick Henningsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2021/04/02/canada-sends-covid-positive-travelers-to-internment-facilities/ – “Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, announced that as part of its new Corona laws, any Canadians hoping to return to their country must first be tested before and after takeoff, meaning that anyone with a positive test result will need to immediately quarantine at designated government facility… Trudeau’s new internment policy was put in place since last month, and numerous Canadians have taken to media to share their horror stories about the country’s latest authoritarian power play waged against its citizens.”
CNN: ‘There Is No Consensus Criteria For Assigning Sex At Birth’ – by Chris Menahan – http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=62128 – ” ‘CNN published a news report on Tuesday which stated matter-of-factly that “there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.’.. From CNN: ‘Though the two executive orders signed by [South Dakota’s Republican Gov. Kristi Noem] do not explicitly mention transgender athletes, they reference the supposed harms of the participation of “males” in women’s athletics — an echo of the transphobic claim, cited in other similar legislative initiatives, that transgender women are not women. The orders also reference “biological sex,” a disputed term that refers to the sex as listed on students’ original birth certificates… It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.’ “
Electric Cars, Smart Refrigerators Pose Cyber Risk To US Utilities, GAO Finds – by Patrick Tucker – https://www.defenseone.com/technology/2021/04/electric-cars-smart-refrigerators-pose-cyber-risk-us-utilities-gao-finds/173094/ – “The risks aren’t well understood by researchers, in part because of local and state control of electrical utilities. Electric vehicles and internet-connected home appliances are making the electrical grid more vulnerable to cyber attacks — and even the Department of Energy doesn’t know how bad the problem is, according to a March report from the Government Accountability Office, or GAO… While cybersecurity researchers have for years warned of insecurity in internet-of-things devices, GAO says these devices could threaten energy distribution systems: the portions of the electrical grid that deliver electricity to homes and businesses. These systems are usually managed by states or local governments while the devices are controlled by consumers. Therein lies part of the problem… ‘Distribution utilities have limited visibility and influence on the use and cybersecurity of these devices because consumers typically control them, according to officials from a national laboratory,’ the report states. The Department of Energy ‘has developed plans to implement the national cybersecurity strategy for the grid, but these plans do not fully address risks to the grid’s distribution systems.’.. But the vulnerabilities of local utilities may threaten entire state or regional grids. “Officials from another national laboratory said the extent to which the bulk power system is susceptible to disruption from attacks on distribution systems is unclear. For instance, they told us that the scale of potential impacts on the bulk power system from a cyberattack on the grid’s distribution systems is not well understood,” the report said.”
Is the Technocracy Coming to Mexico? – by Derrick Broze – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/04/is-the-technocracy-coming-to-mexico.html – “Over the last year new bills have been introduced and new plans announced by the Mexican government which clearly indicate an effort to bring digital surveillance and biometric technology into a nation that has thus far avoided surveillance programs employed by the United States and Canada. The individuals and institutions behind this push frame their efforts as attempts to protect Mexicans from crime, as well as help millions of citizens join the banking system… Although these measures are promoted as a method for bringing the Mexican population into the digital age and ending their status as “unbankable“, the reality is that efforts to modernize Mexico will also result in less privacy and security… The Plan for Biometrics for Cell Phones – Recently, a proposed plan to put millions of cell phone users’ data in a biometric database has caused controversy and some pushback from companies and privacy groups. The plan calls for America Movil, AT&T Inc and other carriers to collect customers biometric data, including fingerprints or retina scan, which is collected in a database managed by Mexico’s regulatory agency.”
UK Refuses to Suspend AstraZeneca COVID Shots as Other Nations Have – 95 New Deaths Recorded this Week in the UK Following AZ COVID Shots – by Brian Shilhavy – https://healthimpactnews.com/2021/uk-refuses-to-suspend-astrazeneca-covid-shots-as-other-nations-have-95-new-deaths-recorded-this-week-in-the-uk-following-az-covid-shots/ – “The UK Government’s reporting system for COVID vaccine adverse reactions from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency released their latest report today, April 1, 2021… The report covers data collected from December 9, 2020, through March 21, 2021, for the two experimental COVID vaccines currently in use in the U.K. from Pfizer and AstraZeneca… They report a total of 713 deaths and 495,345 injuries recorded following the experimental vaccines… That is an increase of 119 deaths and 90,820 injuries recorded since last week. 95 of the 119 recorded deaths this past week followed AstraZeneca COVID injections… More than 20 countries had suspended injections of the AstraZeneca experimental COVID shots due to concerns over fatal blood clots, but the European Medicines Agency (EMA) concluded that there was no link between the AstraZeneca experimental COVID shots and the fatal blood clots, and urged countries to resume vaccinations because ‘the benefits outweigh the risks.’ ”

WHO Pushes International Pandemic Treaty – Another Stepping Stone to World Government – by Makia Freeman – https://thefreedomarticles.com/international-pandemic-treaty-who-stepping-stone-world-gov/ – “The WHO is promoting a new international pandemic treaty to be drawn up and signed by the world’s nations. In their announcement on March 30th 2021 entitled COVID-19 shows why united action is needed for more robust international health architecture, the WHO (World Health Organization) predictably appeals to vague general principles and noble-sounding values in an attempt to entice humanity to support its quest for globalism and more centralization of power. While it doesn’t use the buzzword sustainable this time, it does use another of its favorite buzzwords equitable. The WHO claims that everyone must have “universal and equitable access” to “safe, efficacious and affordable vaccines, medicines and diagnostics” for the current and future pandemics, however it has already gone wrong, since as the facts have shown, COVID is not a pandemic but rather an operation, an agenda, a PCR casedemic and a scamdemic. Those skeptical of authorities asking for more collaboration as a ruse to grab more power should note that the current EU structure came about first via treaties. So let’s take a closer look at the words used to push this new international pandemic treaty.”
ARE THE LOCKDOWNS ALMOST OVER? THEY WILL NEVER BE OVER! PHASE TWO IS READY TO COMMENCE!!! – by Dave Hodges – https://thecommonsenseshow.com/activism-agenda-21-conspiracy/are-lockdowns-almost-over-they-will-never-be-over-phase-two-ready-commence – “My sources are telling me that covid is not the real threat to the people of the United States and the world. As I suspected and wrote about in 2014, the real threat to the population levels of the world is Ebola… The world has overreacted to covid as it only impacts a small percentage of the population. We know something is coming and one does not have to be psychic. Yesterday, the CDC `Director made the most unscientific statement I have ever heard from a public health official. Citing no data, no pre-emptive cause, she said “I feel a sense of impending doom.” Why would a person in a position of trust make such an unfounded statement which could have caused widespread panic?.. I firmly believe that a killshot is still coming our way, probably Ebola. However, purging America’s resisters to a new world communist order, is the near-term objective and I have the proof for what is being claimed here. My state of Arizona, has the ability to take you off the streets in the name of a pandemic, real or imagined, where you might not be heard from again. The legislation is modled after Human Health Services protocols for dealing with a pathogen like Ebola…One of the reasons that I believe that mass incarceration (ie a purge) is coming is because of the authority given to Arizona’s governor. There is a very good chance that your state has similar laws. Most of you will not believe the claims in this article. However, links and history is provided. There is not doubt as towhat is being claimed here. Concentration camps are right around the corner… Arkansas, alleged CV-19 victims, were transported what I would call a FEMA medical martial law facility. This is not an isolated incident. Arizona has granted governor, Doug Ducey, the authority to create, operate and maintain concentration camps. The camps are allegedly for a deadly pathogen from which quarantine is determined to needed. Yet, it is the governor that makes that determination, not a health board nor the State Legislature. This is the create of a medical martial law dictatorship. It follows the HHS guidelines for ESF#8-14.” – Note: Includes Public Health measures and statutes allowing dictatorial controls.
More Satellites by SpaceX and OneWeb Launched Despite Opposition and Catastrophic Warnings – by B.N. Frank – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/03/more-satellites-by-spacex-and-oneweb-launched-despite-opposition-and-catastrophic-warnings.html – “On Wednesday, March 24, 2021, both the number of satellites in low orbit around the earth, and the volume of data they transmit, increased significantly. On Wednesday morning (4:28 a.m. EDT, 8:28 UTC), SpaceX launched another 60 satellites. On Wednesday evening (10:47 p.m. EDT, 14:47 UTC), OneWeb launched another 36 satellites. And people who already have satellite Internet from SpaceX on a trial basis reported a sudden increase in their Internet speed on Wednesday to up to 430 Mbps…. This could explain the reports I am beginning to receive of sudden illness that began on Wednesday. I myself was unable to sleep at all Wednesday night, and my body hurt, and itched, all over. I was very ill all day Thursday, and still do not feel well. I have received similar reports from other people in the United States, Canada, Norway, Australia and South Africa. I would like to find out how widespread this is. Some people are reporting that they have not felt well for a couple of weeks, but that they suddenly got much sicker Wednesday or Wednesday night.”
Dahua and Hikvision Co-Author Racial And Ethnic PRC Police Standards – by IPVM Team – https://ipvm.com/reports/racial-ethnic-standards – “Hikvision and Dahua helped write Chinese police video surveillance standards which include tracking people’s skin color – such as “black”, “yellow” and “brown” – and ethnicity, IPVM has verified… These standards allow police to search video surveillance footage and mugshot/suspect databases via various ‘personal attributes’, including skin color. The standards are widely mandated by recent Chinese police security camera projects… The standards also include “ethnicity” tracking, without naming any specific ethnicity. However, evidence found by IPVM indicates “ethnicity” tracking targets Uyghurs and Tibetans specifically… In this report, IPVM investigates these standards and what they show about PRC police practices… The Chinese government issues detailed standards across all sectors of government, including for the police’s vast security camera networks. Police standards are issued by the Ministry of Public Security but each standard is written by a different mix of government research institutes, police departments, and surveillance companies. While the standards are officially “recommended”, as noted by a supplier of the standards, ‘ “Recommended” is not voluntary, it should be treated as “mandatory” ‘.”
The “Social Credit Score” Is Coming — The Villain May Be In Your Home – by Peter R. Quiñones – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/03/the-social-credit-score-is-coming-the-villain-may-be-in-your-home.html – “I was turned on to the Netflix series Black Mirror a few months after the first season was released… Season 3, Episode 1 – “Nosedive” – which dropped on October 21, 2016 was not one of those “misses,” but, instead an instant favorite among fans. And now, only four years later, I would argue that the premise of the episode is quickly becoming reality… For those who have not seen the episode or need a refresher, the premise of “Nosedive” is that social media’s system of approval has entered into real life. The “like” or ❤︎ response used to approve or disapprove of a post someone shares is now used to rate everyone according to their behavior, not just posts. Every interaction you have with another human can be rated and affects a social credit score that everyone can view. If you’re rude to the barista at the local coffee shop, he/she can ding you. And if your score lowers beyond a certain level, you begin to lose “privileges” such as your house in a “good” neighborhood or access to stores and transportation. Your score can even impact friends and family around you. You wouldn’t be able to have the proverbial “bad day” without risking your very livelihood. The overarching message here is that given this social pressure, society as a whole would improve as those who possess low scores would be shunned at all costs… It is easy for us to have this dystopian view of the future where the State is able to spy on us in a panopticon-like hell. I wonder how many have stopped to examine the last twelve months and wondered if it will be the everyday person next to us – the cashier in the grocery store, or our children living under the same roof who is going to hold more power over us than any politician could ever imagine.”
Rutgers will only let vaccinated students attend classes this fall, transforming its campus into a medical experiment – by Cassie B. – https://www.newstarget.com/2021-03-29-rutgers-only-allow-vaccinated-students-classes.html – “Rutgers University has announced that students must be vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to campus this fall. All three of its locations – New Brunswick, Camden and Newark – will require students to have the jab, making it the first American university to violate students’ health freedom by essentially forcing them to get an experimental vaccine… Students must prove they have been vaccinated in a mandate that will even apply to 17-year-olds, who currently are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. There will only be a few exemptions issued for those who cannot get the vaccine on medical or religious grounds. It’s not yet clear how these exemptions will be granted and what sort of documentation will be needed. Those who take online or other types of off-campus courses exclusively will not need the vaccine… The requirement is particularly surprising given that a top official at the school said in January that the vaccine would not be required. On that occasion, Biomedical and Health Sciences Senior Vice Chancellor Vicente Gracias said: ‘Rutgers, with our stance of human liberties and our history of protecting that, the vaccine is not mandatory.’.. A Pennsylvania attorney told CNN that the mandate is perfectly legal as long as processes are put in place for exemptions.”
Hong Kong Epoch Times Host Threatened by Chinese Police After Exposing Organ Harvesting – by Rita Li – https://www.theepochtimes.com/hong-kong-epoch-times-host-threatened-by-police-for-exposing-organ-harvesting_3751863.html – “Rachel Wong, host of the Hong Kong bureau of the Chinese-language Epoch Times’ Cantonese-language talk shows “Shi Shan’s Outlook” and “What’s Wrong,” said she believed she was targeted by the Chinese regime for exposing its crime of forced organ harvesting in a recent program… Wong, who hosts daily shows on YouTube covering topics related to the Chinese regime, reported evidence of forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China on a program on March 12. Four days later, a family friend based in mainland China was contacted by local authorities… In an exclusive interview with The Epoch Times’ affiliate NTDTV, Wong said she received a message from a relative on March 16, telling her a family friend was called in for questioning by public security officers in her hometown in mainland China… The police threatened the friend to tell Wong “not to do [Epoch Times] programs anymore” under the current political climate… They also said, ‘if the National Security Law is used against them [media staff] and targets them in the future, if her parents don’t have a daughter, it would be very sad, right?’ according to Wong.”
The Vaccine Passport Propaganda Template – by Adam Dick – http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2021/march/30/the-vaccine-passport-propaganda-template/ – “With reports that President Joe Biden’s administration is planning for imposing a vaccine passport mandate in America, expect to see in the media a deluge of vaccine passport propaganda. What will that propaganda look like? A template illustrating several elements you can expect to see in the propaganda push was provided several weeks ago in a CNN interview… In the first week of March, host Fareed Zakaria and his guest Arthur Caplan provided at CNN a textbook example of how to present vaccine passport propaganda to the American people. Let’s look at some of the major elements of the propaganda template as demonstrated by Zakaria and Caplan.”
From the Shape-Of-Things-To-Come Desk: 27 being monitored for Ebola virus in Oregon, Washington – OHA and Washington officials believe there is low risk to anyone – https://www.koin.com/news/oregon/four-people-being-monitored-for-ebola-virus-in-oregon/ – “Four people are being monitored for the Ebola virus in Oregon and another 23 in Washington… The Oregon Health Authority says officials are monitoring four people who recently visited Guinea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo — two countries that have regions currently experiencing Ebola outbreaks. The individuals arrived back in Oregon in early March and have since been in contact with the OHA and local public health departments… These people will be monitored in order to determine any risk factor of exposure and to ensure their safety, as well as the safety of their families and the community. However, the OHA believes there is low risk for people in Oregon… Late Thursday afternoon, public health officials in Washington said they were monitoring 23 people who recently traveled to those countries. Officials said they’ve been in contact with those people and there is low risk for people in Washington… People contract Ebola through blood or bodily fluid exchange in direct, intimate contact. A person would have to by symptomatic, such as with a high fever, to transmit it… As of March 24, Guinea has reported 18 cases and nine deaths related to Ebola outbreaks. The Democratic Republic of the Congo has reported 12 Ebola cases and six Ebola-related deaths.” – Comment: “I think it’s time we Stop, children, what’s that sound, Everybody look what’s goin’ down…”
Preservative in Pop-Tarts, Cheez-Its, hundreds of popular foods may harm immune system – by Chris Melore – https://www.studyfinds.org/preservative-foods-immune-system/ – “Most shoppers probably appreciate preservatives for their ability to keep food around longer before it spoils. Unfortunately, a new report finds hundreds of popular, processed foods may contain one ingredient which harms the human immune system… Researchers from the Environmental Working Group say nearly 1,250 products contain the shelf life-extending chemical tert-butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ. They find this preservative, used in Pop-Tarts, Rice Krispies Treats, Cheez-Its, and countless other products, disrupts immune health in both animal and non-animal tests. It may even weaken the effectiveness of vaccines against viruses like COVID-19… ‘The pandemic has focused public and scientific attention on environmental factors that can impact the immune system,’ says Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., study lead author and EWG vice president for science investigations, in a media release. ‘Before the pandemic, chemicals that may harm the immune system’s defense against infection or cancer did not receive sufficient attention from public health agencies. To protect public health, this must change.’ ”
Here Come The Global Vaccine Passports – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/here-come-global-vaccine-passports – “Vaccination passports are being called the new “golden ticket” needed for global travel – and the hospitality industries that benefit – now that the recovery is on its way… Countries like Greece, who get a sizeable share of their country’s GDP from tourism, are looking forward to welcoming back visitors. Greece will re-open itself to visitors on May 14, Bloomberg noted last week, but will require either a vaccination, proof of recovery from the virus of a negative test before departing for the country… Those who require tourism for their livelihoods are ready to move on. Rental boat operator Panagiotis Mastoras said: ‘It’s the safest way. We’ve reached a point where it can’t go on like this.’.. Greece is leading the way in pushing for vaccine passports – usually taking the form of certificates or digital cards – an idea that is also catching on in tourist nations like Thailand and the Caribbean. For businesses who rely on tourism, the “passport” is seen as a “route to salvation”, the report notes.”
Biden Administration Set to Launch COVID Passport That Would Track Americans Who Have Taken Vaccines – by Kyle Becker – https://beckernews.com/new-breaking-biden-administration-set-to-launch-covid-passport-that-would-track-americans-who-have-taken-vaccines-38141/ – ” ‘The Biden administration and private companies are working to develop a standard way of handling credentials — often referred to as ‘vaccine passports’ — that would allow Americans to prove they have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus as businesses try to reopen,’ the Washington Post reported on Sunday… ‘The effort has gained momentum amid President Biden’s pledge that the nation will start to regain normalcy this summer and with a growing number of companies — from cruise lines to sports teams — saying they will require proof of vaccination before opening their doors again,’ the report continued… ‘The administration’s initiative has been driven largely by arms of the Department of Health and Human Services, including an office devoted to health information technology, said five officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the effort,’ the report added… ‘Our role is to help ensure that any solutions in this area should be simple, free, open source, accessible to people both digitally and on paper, and designed from the start to protect people’s privacy,’ the administration’s coronavirus coordinator Zients said at a March 12 briefing. The Biden White House refused to go on the record about the COVID passports.” (underlined emphasis added) – Comment: Somehow I’m skeptical about the privacy bit.
Putin To Biden: Despite All Attempts To Stop Russia’s Development, They Will Have To Reckon With Us! (5 min) – Comment: This is Putin’s direct response to Biden whining when prompted by George Stephanopolous that “Putin is a killer.” Relatively cordial, yet very hard hitting.
