Perhaps the Most Important Video of the Last Two Weeks (and that’s saying something): Ole Dammegard: There might have been bigger plans beside this right now! (1hr 40min) – Interviewed by Claudia of CabinTalk on youtube – Ole talks both about the hidden nexus behind the creation of the “Coronavirus Crisis,” which involves an international network for human control, but about how this has triggered a mass awakening of perhaps billions of people to the nature of the evil behind the planning and execution of global clampdown, which threatens the Technocrats with the removal of our consent for their proceedings.
Juan Guaido Denies Any Connection To Failed Infiltration Attempt Into Venezuela: The Plot Thickens – https://southfront.org/juan-guaido-denies-any-connection-to-failed-infiltration-attempt-into-venezuela-the-plot-thickens/ – ““We reiterate once again that the interim government has no link, commitment or responsibility to Silvercorp or its actions, as well as deny that President Guaido has signed an assumption contract with [the company],” Guaido’s office said in a statement… Just a day earlier, the Washington Post published a “General Services Agreement” between Juan Guaido and Silvercorp USA… The 41-page document can be read and downloaded in its entirety. It can be found both in Spanish and English… The document has numerous signatures on it, but doesn’t contain Guaido’s signature.”

Naikoo’s death is being seen as a major victory for India’s counterinsurgency efforts… ‘He was trapped in a house and early today a gun battle took place during which he and his associate were killed,’ Kashmir’s inspector general of police, Vijay Kumar said… Starting from May 6th, however, riots began in Kashmir, following the killing. Protesters began throwing stones at security officers and attempting to destroy vehicles by using various sticks and other improvised weaponry.”
A New Coronavirus Threat to Children – Here’s what we know about the mysterious and frightening ailment that doctors are seeing in a small but growing number of very young Covid-19 patients. – by Pam Belluck – https://www.nytimes.com/article/kawasaki-disease-coronavirus-children.html – “Symptoms can include fever, rash, reddish eyes, swollen lymph nodes and sharp abdominal pain. They do not usually include two common hallmarks of Covid-19: cough and shortness of breath… And though shock is a rare complication of Kawasaki disease, the new syndrome has sent many of the children into a kind of toxic shock with very low blood pressure and an inability of the blood to effectively circulate oxygen and nutrients to the body’s organs, Dr. Kernie said… How do we know it’s related to the coronavirus?.. Many of the children who have become sick with the syndrome either tested positive for the coronavirus at the time of their symptoms, or had positive antibody tests suggesting they may have been infected weeks earlier. Dr. Schafer said it was possible that “this may be a post-infection condition and not necessarily part of the acute phase of Covid.” (emphasis added) – Comment: I hope that people understand that the PCR or antibody/antigen tests (of which there are, at this point, possibly dozens out there) ARE NOT SPECIFIC to any actually isolated or sequenced viral RNA sequence, but only test for “snippets” of RNA that can relate to previous exposure to MANY different viruses, or even to cellular activity (exosomes from native cells, etc.). So far, isolation of “Covid-19” (which multiple studies suggest has now undergone multiple mutations) has not been made evident by any published scientific papers at all. So what these children may be suffering from (and their trieatments, according to this article, include “steroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, high-dose aspirin and antibiotics, as well as supportive oxygen through the nose, a mask or, in the most serious cases, a ventilator. It should be obvious to anyone not under the spell of the “Modern Medical Paradigm” that steroids, aspirin, as well (likely) as IV immunoglobulin are toxic and stressful to the system. The symptoms described in this article seem to focus on the type of hypoxia described by Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who risked his career to warn the world about the serious dangers to patients in New York hospitals from being placed on ventilators (particularly as the common medical protocols of first placing patients with low blood-oxygen on C-Pap or Bi-Pap therapy using masks, not intubation.
Coronavirus Live Updates: Top Health Officials to Quarantine After Being Exposed – Three children have died of a mysterious syndrome linked to the virus. Trump’s support among seniors slips as the pandemic becomes more political. – Three members of the coronavirus task force are beginning to quarantine after two White House staff members tested positive. – https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/09/us/coronavirus-news-updates.html – “A virus ‘conspiracy’ video has gone viral,,, In a video posted to YouTube on Monday, a woman animatedly described an unsubstantiated secret plot by global elites like Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci to use the coronavirus pandemic to profit and grab political power… In the 26-minute video, the woman asserted how Dr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a leading voice on the coronavirus, had buried her research about how vaccines can damage people’s immune systems. It is those weakened immune systems, she declared, that have made people susceptible to illnesses like Covid-19… The video, a scene from a longer dubious documentary called “Plandemic,” was quickly seized upon by anti-vaccinators, the conspiracy group QAnon and activists from the Reopen America movement, generating more than eight million views. And it has turned the woman — Dr. Judy Mikovits, 62, a discredited scientist — into a new star of virus disinformation… Her ascent was powered not only by the YouTube video but also by a book that she published in April, “Plague of Corruption,” which frames Dr. Mikovits as a truth-teller fighting deception in science. In recent weeks, she has become a darling of far-right publications like The Epoch Times and The Gateway Pundit. Mentions of her on social media and television have spiked to as high as 14,000 a day, according to the media insights company Zignal Labs.”
Obama Trashes DOJ For Putting “The Rule Of Law” At Risk With Gen. Flynn – Turley Gives Him a Reality Check – by Erin Flockhart – https://newspushed.com/obama-trashes-doj-for-putting-the-rule-of-law-at-risk-with-gen-flynn-turley-gives-him-a-reality-check/ – “Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley shut down former President Obama’s warning that the “rule of law is at risk” after the DOJ dropped charges against former national security adviser retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn… ‘The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,’ Obama was quoted saying Friday… ‘And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for somebody who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic, not just institutional norms, but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places,’ he said… Turley wrote on Twitter of Obama’s statement, ‘There is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free’ was a ‘curious statement’ for several reasons.’.. ‘First, Flynn was not charged with perjury. Second, We now know Obama discussed charging Flynn under the Logan Act which has never been used successfully to convict anyone and is flagrantly unconstitutional,’ Turley wrote in a Twitter thread… Jonathan Turley, a self-proclaimed liberal who was a witness during the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, added also another point that Obama’s comment ‘reaffirms reports that Obama was personally invested in this effort.’ ” – Comment: This article continues with proof that there are powerful precedents for the release of Gen. Flynn.

Schiff and Hoax Dems Sweating Bullets, Freaking Out as Trump Demands Justice! – by Laura Steinberg – https://newspushed.com/schiff-and-hoax-dems-sweating-bullets-freaking-out-as-trump-demands-justice/ – “President Donald Trump is rightfully demanding Justice. Adam Schiff belongs in jail, or worse. He’s totally freaking out because he knows it’s true. Democrats knew the whole Russia collusion witch-hunt was a hoax and the transcripts prove it. The president is already measuring Schiff up for a noose. “Nine inches around the neck,” he told members of congress. Schiff and his Deep State cronies are sweating bullets… A time of reckoning and ‘justice for all’: President Trump insists that if California Democrat Adam Schiff weren’t running loose “in the halls of Congress,” then he would “be in jail.” Not only is Schiff “a sick, sick man” but “he’s a corrupt politician.” He has been caught dead to rights intentionally hiding incriminating evidence from the public… This is a major political event and the public deserves to see real justice for a change. “This is a corrupt deal, and we caught them cold,” President Trump asserts.”
Yale Scientist: Reopening America Is ‘Awfully Close to Genocide’ – by Tom Ciccotta – https://www.breitbart.com/education/2020/05/07/yale-scientist-reopening-america-is-awfully-close-to-genocide/ – “Yale epidemiologist Gregg Gonsalves criticized the U.S. government’s response to the Chinese virus pandemic and its plan to reopen the country in a tweet that was published on Wednesday, suggesting that it would be “genocide by default” to lift “shelter in place” restrictions. Gonsalves also suggested that the government’s response would disproportionately impact “people of color.”.. ‘How many people will die this summer, before Election Day? What proportion of the deaths will be among African-Americans, Latinos, other people of color?’ Gonsalves wrote in the tweet. ‘This is getting awfully close to genocide by default. What else do you call mass death by public policy?’.. In another tweet, Gonsalves argued that government officials should face consequences for their response to the pandemic under international law. “So, what does it mean to let thousands die by negligence, omission, failure to act, in a legal sense under international law?” Gonsalves wrote in a follow-up tweet.”
Texas Supreme Court orders release of salon owner jailed for ignoring shutdown order – https://kvia.com/news/texas/2020/05/07/texas-governor-removes-jail-as-punishment-for-violating-virus-restrictions-says-dallas-salon-owner-should-be-freed/ – “The Texas Supreme Court on Thursday granted a motion to release Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther, who was sentenced to seven days in jail for defying orders to keep her business closed during the pandemic… The order came soon after Gov. Greg Abbott announced he was modifying his recent executive orders related to the coronavirus pandemic to eliminate jail time for Texans who violate the restrictions. The move by Abbott was an attempt to release Luther, and prevent the jailing of others who have violated similar orders in recent weeks… Luther, who state district Judge Eric Moyé found in contempt of court earlier this week, kept her Salon a la Mode running while violating stay-at-home orders and despite receiving a cease-and-desist letter from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, as well as a temporary restraining order Moyé, a Democrat, signed that told Luther her business must remain closed.”
The Covid Shockdown Doctrine — and How to Beat It – by Julian Rose – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/05/the-covid-shockdown-doctrine-and-how-to-beat-it.html – “Now ‘The Shock Doctrine’ is back with us again – with a vengeance. But this time it’s not just a national shock prescription, but a global one, executed on the concocted premise of a dangerous virus which is purported to have escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, at the turn of the year… The first move of this latest attempted grand heist has been to get around half the population locked-down in their own homes and induced into a state of fear paralysis. A formula that is activated by the ‘instructed’ mainstream media spreading a panic-warning of said virus spooking its way into all avenues of life and causing some form of untreatable sickness… The effectiveness of this fear-based indoctrination programme has been remarkable. A recent national opinion poll conducted in the UK suggests that more than 60% of the British public – believing what they are hearing and consequently suffering the Covid fear symptoms – do not want the lockdown measures to be lifted or even eased. This might be explained by the fact that the BBC – a masterful spreader of political disinformation – is regarded by many in the UK as ‘god’, followed closely by the Queen, on whose estate the Pirbright Institute is housed, a Coronavirus patent is officially registered and a Covid-19 vaccine is being developed.”
MIT Ridicules Critics Of Technocrat Coup d’état – by Patrick Wood – https://www.technocracy.news/mit-ridicules-critics-of-technocrat-coup-detat/ – The masterful and carefully constructed lead paragraph in MIT’s Technology Review article Five things we need to do to make contact tracing really work states, ‘The ongoing pandemic is fertile ground for opportunistic hucksters, loud frauds, and coronavirus deniers who attack or blame everyone and everything from Chinese-Americans to Bill Gates to 5G networks. The latest front in this bizarre war: contact tracing.’.. You can see the clever use of words to conclude that anyone who would dare to criticize ‘contact tracing’ is thrown in with ‘opportunistic hucksters, loud frauds and coronavirus deniers’… MIT, on the other hand, positions itself as being in the “reasonable center”, doing responsible things in the name of solving a problem that must be solved. What does MIT recommend?: ● Task 1: Hire 100,000 manual tracers; ● Task 2: Protect privacy; ● Task 3: Ensure that tracing covers as many people as possible; ● Task 4: Accept that technology alone cannot solve this problem; ● Task 5. And do it all, now.”
Not a Single COVID-19 Test is FDA Approved – Do We Really Know Who has COVID-19 and Who Does Not? – by Brian Shilhavy – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/not-a-single-covid-19-test-is-fda-approved-do-we-really-know-who-has-covid-19-and-who-does-not/ – “We are witnessing one of the most extraordinary events in human history, and certainly the most far-reaching and impactful event in all of our lifetimes, because of the effects of what we are being told is a single coronavirus… Here at Health Impact News, as always, we have endeavored to publish the truth about this pandemic, even if the truth is not popular or censored in the corporate-funded “mainstream” media… This article being published today, on May 5, 2020, might be the most significant article about COVID-19 that we have published on the topic to date… The rationale for the extraordinary events we are seeing today all come down to one dataset: the amount of people infected with this coronavirus, and the rate at which people are dying from it… This can only be justified by one simple fact: that we know how to identify and test for this single virus… If this single fact cannot be proven, or if it is proven to be false, and we really do not have the means to accurately test for this virus, then everything that has transpired as a direct result of trusting the data that this test is based upon, has been built on a faulty foundation that does not exist… Does this sound like a conspiracy theory? Because if you dare to ask the question, that is what you will be accused of for daring to question the accuracy of the tests, and therefore the accuracy of the data that these tests allegedly prove… So let’s start with the facts that most everyone agrees upon, or that can be easily verified.”

Gates Admits 700,000 People May Die from his Vaccine – by Martin Armstrong – https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/corruption/gates-admits-700000-people-may-die-from-his-vaccine/ – “Personally, I think Gates has just proven he is a psychopath. He just admitted that 700,000 people would (could) die from his vaccine and that’s OK, its collateral damage I suppose… I do not think 700,000 people should sacrifice their lives for Bill Gates and what kind of person would even demand the entire world be vaccinated? This seems to me to be more of an effort to be exonerated from any liability, a complete denial of human and civil rights to FORCE people to be vaccinated, by a man who has no medical background and whose body language of always waving his hands in the air appears to me as hiding the truth behind his scheme.”
US Mercenaries Arrested In Venezuela Tweeted To Confirm Operation With Donald Trump – https://southfront.org/us-mercenaries-arrested-in-venezuela-tweeted-to-confirm-operation-with-donald-trump/ – “Immediately after Venezuelan authorities arrested a group of mercenaries, reports began circulating that two of them – Luke Alexander Denman and Aaron Barry were actually part of Silvercorp USA, and both of them provided security for US President Donald Trump… On top of it all, to add insult to injury, a journalist from RT reported on it, and the Silvercorp Twitter account responded saying that ‘mercenaries get paid to rid the world of Maduro shills like you.’.. However, to make things even more ridiculous – Silvercorp on May 3rd, tweeted that they were carrying out an incursion into Venezuela with 60 individuals, and tagged Donald Trump in the tweet… In a state TV appearance, Maduro said that the two Americans arrested outside Caracas were “professional mercenaries” named Luke Denman and Airan Berry, who carried ID cards for a Florida-based security contractor called Silvercorp… In a state TV appearance, Maduro said that the two Americans arrested outside Caracas were “professional mercenaries” named Luke Denman and Airan Berry, who carried ID cards for a Florida-based security contractor called Silvercorp.
If We Want to Return to Normal, We Have to Fix the Policy – by Mike Whitney – https://www.globalresearch.ca/if-we-want-return-normal-we-have-fix-policy/5711674 – “So the ultimate goal of our policy should be to get back to normal, to restore the life we had before the masks, the gloves, the daily briefings, the self isolation, the social distancing, the daily death toll, the shutting down of the economy, the deluge of unemployment claims, the destruction of small and mid-sized businesses, the trillions dollars of additional red ink, and the abrupt termination of all normal interaction with our friends, our neighbors and our families. That’s what the aim of our policy should be, to get back to normal… But that’s the problem, our current (lockdown) policy doesn’t do that. It doesn’t put us on a path for achieving our objectives. Take a look at this article at The Hill and you’ll see what I mean…”
Eric Schmidt and Bill Gates are being asked to “reimagine” New York. Not everybody loves that. – by Theodore Schleifer – https://www.vox.com/recode/2020/5/6/21249410/coronavirus-andrew-cuomo-bill-gates-eric-schmidt-tech-billionaires – “Gov. Andrew Cuomo is leaning on tech billionaires to rebuild New York after the coronavirus — a reminder of how the mega-rich are consolidating their power and expanding their influence even as they offer to help respond to the pandemic… Cuomo has tapped Bill Gates’s foundation and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt to “reimagine” New York’s economy, health care system, and school system, the governor said in back-to-back briefings on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been chosen to “revolutionize” online learning for the fall and was asked by Cuomo on Tuesday to develop a “blueprint” for how to do so… And on Wednesday, Cuomo invited Schmidt to appear at his closely watched daily news conference, where Schmidt said he would focus on telehealth, remote learning, and broadband access as the chair of a new commission focused on organizing New York’s economy more around technology… The appointments will undoubtedly give the two tech billionaires substantial influence in shaping what New York looks like a year from now.”
National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan – https://www.rockefellerfoundation.org/national-covid-19-testing-action-plan/ – “Testing is our way out of this crisis. Instead of ricocheting between an unsustainable shutdown and a dangerous, uncertain return to normalcy, the United States must mount a sustainable strategy with better tests and contact tracing, and stay the course for as long as it takes to develop a vaccine or cure. Any plan to do so must win the faith of private and public sector leaders across the country, and of individual Americans that they and their loved ones will be safer when we begin to return to daily life… The Rockefeller Foundation exists to meet moments like this. In the past two weeks we have brought together experts and leaders from science, industry, academia, public policy, and government – across sectors and political ideologies – to create a clear, pragmatic, data-driven, actionable plan to beat back Covid-19 and get Americans back to work more safely.” (emphasis added)

He claimed the strike against Soleimani ‘was fully authorized by law, including the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 and Article II of the Constitution.’..

A New Frustrated Chapter in the Violent War Against Venezuela – https://southfront.org/a-new-frustrated-chapter-in-the-violent-war-against-venezuela/ – “In the early morning of May 3, there was a thwarted mercenary raid on the coast of Macuto, in the state of La Guaira. Interior, Justice, and Peace Minister Néstor Reverol reported that the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB) together with the Special Action Forces (FAES) of the Bolivarian National Police countered an invasion by “sea” on the coast by non-state actors, officially called “Operation Negro Primero”… The Venezuelan authorities reportedly killed nine mercenaries and detained two others, who were part of what they called “Operation Gideon”… Minister Reverol reported “that the operation is continuing and other arrests are not ruled out as a thorough search is being made by land, sea, and air… Cabello repeated this to the press at the Federal Legislative Palace, adding that one of the subjects arrested in the early hours of the morning confessed to being a drug trafficker, an agent of the DEA, the United States’ anti-drug agency, and added: ‘It is sad that those who call themselves Venezuelans are financed by drug trafficking, by drug money’… What is certain is that some of the weapons and electronic equipment seized in this operation coincide with the models used in last year’s incident, on April 30, 2019, when some defectors from the FANB and mercenaries took over the Altamira distribution center in Caracas in a failed attempt to overthrow the government of President Nicolás Maduro in order to place Juan Guaidó, the man chosen by Donald Trump’s administration, in power.”

Will Coronavirus Mutations Delay COVID-19 Vaccines? – by Kate Raines – https://thevaccinereaction.org/2020/05/will-coronavirus-mutations-delay-covid-19-vaccines/ – “A ‘Significant’ COVID-19 Mutation Identified: Nevertheless, several mutations have already been reported. By mid-April, researchers from the University of Cambridge mapping how the virus has spread from the epicenter in Wuhan, China, stated the virus has mutated into three distinct strains. The first is “Strain A,” thought to be the original strain found in Wuhan; the second is “Strain B,” two mutations from A and responsible for most of the cases in Wuhan and East Asia; and the third is “Strain C,” offshoot of B and the strain responsible for most of the infections in Europe… In April, researchers in Australia and Taiwan also published an article analyzing the mutation dynamics of SARS CoV-2 and found a mutant, stating, ‘This represents the first report of a significant SARS-CoV-2 mutant and raises the alarm that the ongoing vaccine development may become futile in future epidemic if more mutations were identified.’ ”

The experimental coronoavirus vaccine will combine GSK’s proprietary squalene-based vaccine adjuvant AS03 used in the company’s H1N1 influenza vaccine Pandemrix, with the insect cell-based recombinant DNA vaccine technology that Sanofi Pasteur currently uses to make their inactivated quadrivalent influenza vaccine, FluBlok… According to Scrip Informa Pharma Intelligence, the business partnership between the two experienced vaccine manufacturers utilizing already licensed technology to create a COVID-19 vaccine could place them in front of companies seeking approval for experimental mRNA and DNA technology not yet licensed… Goal to Manufacture 600 Million Doses By 2021: Sanofi and GSK with their combined manufacturing capacity are hoping to produce up to 600 million doses of their new coronavirus vaccine by 2021.32 Clinical trials are scheduled to begin in the second half of 2020 and, if trial results are positive, the companies plan to make the vaccine available to the public by the second half of 2021.”
79% of the COVID-19 Positive Deaths in Canada Have Been of Nursing Home Residents – “To isolate those not at risk and to NOT isolate those at risk is a human catastrophe” -Dr. Knut Wittkowski – by Until there is a treatment or vaccine, life won’t go back to normal,’ Dr. Tam said. What’s clear, she said, is Canadians will be living with the virus for a “significant number of months” and mass gatherings are off the table for the foreseeable future… Numbers released on Tuesday show a steep jump from two weeks ago, when almost half of all coronavirus deaths were linked to the homes. The numbers also show the death rate for the disease at 5.5 per cent, more than double the 2.2 per cent on April 9… The numbers were released by Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam and her deputy, Dr. Howard Njoo, along with updated short- and long-term projections for the pandemic. By May 5, the models show that the total number of coronavirus-related deaths in Canada could rise to between 3,277 and 3,883, with a 95-per-cent probability… “As the epidemic comes under control and the growth of cases slows, the severe outcomes and deaths continue to accrue as COVID-19 takes a heavy toll among highly susceptible populations,” Dr. Tam said at a press conference… This passage describes the absurdity succinctly: ‘So far, the federal officials believe Canada is staying within the most optimistic scenario where no more than 10 per cent of people become infected in the first wave of the pandemic. However, if the first wave of the disease has a low infection rate, continuing physical distancing measures will be all the more important, as few people will have immunity.’ ”
Trump Administration Models Predict Near Doubling of Daily Death Toll by June – https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/04/us/coronavirus-updates.html – “As President Trump presses for states to reopen their economies, his administration is privately projecting a steady rise in the number of cases and deaths from the coronavirus over the next several weeks, reaching about 3,000 daily deaths on June 1, according to an internal document obtained by The New York Times, nearly double from the current level of about 1,750… The projections, based on government modeling pulled together in chart form by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, forecast about 200,000 new cases each day by the end of the month, up from about 25,000 cases now… The White House responded that the new projections had not been vetted… ‘This is not a White House document nor has it been presented to the Coronavirus Task Force or gone through interagency vetting,’ said Judd Deere, a White House spokesman. ‘This data is not reflective of any of the modeling done by the task force or data that the task force has analyzed.’.. Mr. Gottlieb said Americans ‘may be facing the prospect that 20,000, 30,000 new cases a day diagnosed becomes the new normal.’ ” – Comment: An earlier version of this article attributed the “government modelling” to the CDC, but the NY Times edited this out.
