Whitney Webb Interview – 2020 Election Chaos Being Used To Set Stage For The Final Technocratic Push (59 min) – from Ryan Cristian, TheLastAmericanVagabond.com

“Bipartisan” Washington Insiders Reveal Their Plan for Chaos if Trump Wins the Election – byWhitney Webb – https://unlimitedhangout.com/2020/09/investigative-reports/bipartisan-washington-insiders-reveal-their-plan-for-chaos-if-trump-wins-the-election/ – “A group of Democratic Party insiders and former Obama and Clinton era officials as well as a cadre of “Never Trump” neoconservative Republicans have spent the past few months conducting simulations and “war games” regarding different 2020 election “doomsday” scenarios… Per several media reports on the group, called the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), they justify these exercises as specifically preparing for a scenario where President Trump loses the 2020 election and refuses to leave office, potentially resulting in a constitutional crisis. However, according to TIP’s  own documents, even their simulations involving a “clear win” for Trump in the upcoming election resulted in a constitutional crisis, as they predicted that the Biden campaign would make bold moves aimed at securing the presidency, regardless of the election result… This is particularly troubling given that TIP has considerable ties to the Obama administration, where Biden served as Vice President, as well as several groups that are adamantly pro-Biden in addition to the Biden campaign itself.”

Standing on the Precipice of Martial Law – by Matthew Ehret – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2020/04/03/standing-on-the-precipice-of-marshall-law/ – “The Stage is Again Set for Martial Law: Another President resistant to regime change and nuclear confrontation with Russia and China finds himself today in the White House in the form of Donald Trump… As in 1933, today’s financial collapse threatens to rip the social and economic fabric of America to shreds, and just as in 1963 a powerful military industrial complex and private banking system manages a web of power which is devoted to overturning the 2016 election (and 1776 revolution) by any means. The biggest difference today is that a global coronavirus pandemic threatens to be the catalyzer used to justify military dictatorship in America and broader nuclear confrontation with Russia and China… Instead of names like “Dulles”, or “Lemnitzer”, today’s coup directors feature such names as “Pompeo” and “O’Shawnessy”… both Deep State assets highly positioned in 3rd and 4th place to take over the Presidency at the drop of a hat.”

Will a Military Coup Undo the November Elections, Donald Trump and the Republic Itself? – by Matthew Ehret –  https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2020/09/16/will-military-coup-undo-november-elections-trump-and-republic-itself/  – “On September 5, Colonel Richard Black (Former State Senator and Judge Advocate) delivered a presentation at a Schiller Institute seminar where the colonel warned of the interconnected pattern of statements by former high ranking military officials either openly calling for a military coup (Lt. Colonels Paul Yingling and John Nagl on August 11) or celebrating the anarchist mobs threatening to tear the republic apart. To the latter group, Col. Black named former Defense Secretary James Mattis, Colin Powell, and Col. John Allen who have all questioned the authority of the President and touted their belief that Trump would not leave the White House willingly in January 2021. The actual source for those concerns didn’t come from any actual evidence obtained from reality however, but in fact arose out of “November chaos scenario war games” advanced by Soros/Clinton/Neocon-affiliated think tanks like the Transition Integrity Project which ran Event 201-like “fictional” scenario “war games”… After years of ongoing deep state penetration of the USA since JFK’s murder, a surprising nationalist dark horse president found himself in the Oval Office in the form of Donald Trump and just two months away from the 2020 elections, the threat of a new Military Coup organized by international financiers is as high as ever… Warning of a military coup, Col. Black stated ‘The coordinated release of scathing remarks by senior officials coupled with publication of a letter advocating a military coup suggests a deep sickness within the Pentagon and within our constitutional structure.’.. As RT reported, between 2008-2018, 380 high ranking pentagon officials have been hired by defense contractors including 25 generals, 9 admirals, 43 Lieutenant Generals and 23 Vice Admirals… which provides just one sampling of the potential for treachery prevalent within the sick constitutional structure.”

Innocent Until Proven Trump Supporter – by Ann Coulter – https://anncoulter.com/2020/09/23/innocent-until-proven-trump-supporterxxxx/ – “The Democratic district attorney, Don Kleine, his chief deputy Brenda Beadle, and all the homicide detectives spent 12 hours that weekend reconstructing the incident with multiple videos. Their unanimous conclusion? That Gardner shot Scurlock in self-defenseAt 22, Scurlock already had a rap sheet a mile long, including home invasion, assault and battery, domestic violence — and, of course, he was in the middle of a crime spree that very night. Methamphetamine and cocaine were found in his urine… But “the community” erupted like COVID in April. Nebraska state Sen. Megan Hunt (bisexual, graduate of a now-defunct college) repeatedly called Gardner a “white supremacist.” Another Nebraska state senator, Kara Eastman (bisexual), called Gardner’s shooting of Spurlock a “cold-blooded murder.”.. Protesters besieged (District Attorney) Kleine’s neighborhood… Kleine responded to the mob’s demand for “justice” by calling in a black prosecutor, Fred Franklin, to make damn sure the grand jury indicted Gardner — whom Kleine (the elected D.A.) had found to be innocent. As he was expected to do, Franklin produced a series of fanciful indictments, including for manslaughter and making a “terroristic threat.”.. Gardner was facing 95 years in prison for shooting a career criminal who was choking him, and now he had lost his source of income. So naturally his friends tried to set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for his legal defense… GoFundMe’s response? They instantly and repeatedly took down the page, based on their clearly stated policy: We don’t like you… Meanwhile, the family of the convicted criminal who jumped Gardner has already raised more than a quarter-million dollars on GoFundMe. (Funeral expenses can be costly!).. Last weekend, facing death threats and a kangaroo court, and with no means to mount a defense, Gardner killed himself, rather than be killed by the mob waiting for him back in Omaha.”

London Riot Police moving in on Trafalgar Square (8 min) – A military style operation

Armenia Orders ‘Full Troop Mobilization’ Against Azerbaijan As Tanks Clash, Martial Law Declared – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/armenia-declares-war-martial-law-effect-tank-warfare-azerbaijan-erupts-disputed – “Sunday saw huge clashes erupt between the armies of Armenia and Azerbaijan along the already  militarized and disputed Nagorno-Karabakh border region. An official state of war in the region has been declared by Yerevan… ‘Early in the morning, around 7 a.m. the Azerbaijani forces launched a large-scale aggression, including missile attacks…’ Armenia’s Defense Ministry stated Sunday. Armenia has since reportedly declared martial law and a “total military mobilization” in what looks to be the most serious escalation between the two countries in years… Air and artillery attacks from both sides ramped up, with each side blaming the other for the start of hostilities, while international powers urge calm. Crucially, civilians have already been killed on either side by indiscriminate shelling. At least a dozen soldiers on either side have also been reported killed… Turkey’s role in new fighting is attracting scrutiny. Its foreign ministry blamed Armenia and called for it to halt military operations, however, it hardly appears to be a mere outside or ‘neutral’ observer, given new widespread reports Turkey has transferred ‘Syrian rebel’ units to join the fighting on Azerbaijan’s side… Azerbaijan has also declared an official state of martial law while clashes between the armies are unfolding… Meanwhile footage has emerged showing Armenia’s nationwide mustering of its national and reserve forces…

David Icke Speech At Trafalgar Square, 9/26/2020 – Another Version (20 min)  – Comment: This is perhaps the most powerful speech David has ever made, at a time when, as he puts it, “the tide has turned.”

Latest installment of Whitney Webb Engineering Contagion series: Engineering Contagion: UPMC, Corona-thrax and “the Darkest Winter” – by Whitney Webb – https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/engineering-contagion-upmc-corona-thrax-darkest-winter/ – “Soon after having been fired from his post as secretary of the treasury in December 2002, after a policy clash with the president, Paul O’Neill became a trustee of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Despite having just worked under and clashed with George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, it wasn’t until O’Neill began answering to UPMC CEO Jeffrey Romoff as a member of the Center’s board that he chose to publicly denounce a superior as “evil.”.. ‘He wants to destroy competition. He wants to be the only game in town,’ O’Neill would later state of Romoff, adding that ‘after 18 months I quit [the UPMC board] in disgust’ due to Romoff’s “absolute control” over the board’s actions. O’Neill subsequently noted that UPMC ‘board members who have wealth of hundreds of millions of dollars are not willing to take this guy on.’ When pressed by a local reporter, O’Neill further elaborated that he had been told by other board members that they were “afraid” of Romoff because Romoff might “harm them in some way.”.. O’Neill’s criticisms of Romoff are hardly an outlier, as local community activists and even a state attorney general have noted that UPMC’s board lets Romoff do as he pleases.”

Introduction to the Fourth Industrial Revolution & The Covid Economic Reset (with [5!] videos interviewing Allison McDowell) – https://wrenchinthegears.com/2020/07/24/introduction-to-the-fourth-industrial-revolution-the-covid-economic-reset/ – “In mid-May 2020,  Jason Bosch, documentary filmmaker and activist from Denver, came to Philadelphia to pick my brain about the things I’ve been researching for the past five years. He edited that footage into a series of five videos covering  issues related to racialized technology, global finance, the Covid lockdowns, digital identity, and the rise of human capital data markets… A lot of this is ground I have covered in previous posts, but I sense the conversational nature of this exchange may make some of this information more approachable… Very grateful to Jason for sharing his talents. Phone videos can only take you so far.”

COVID World – Resist! – by Iain Davis – https://off-guardian.org/2020/09/22/covid-world-resist/ – “COVID 19 is being used to create a global fascist dictatorship. From New Zealand to the the U.S, so called western democracies have adopted and developed the Chinese model of technocracy to create a single biosecurity State… This globalist corporate State is to be centrally controlled and administered by a distant global governance cartel of appointed bureaucrats. Tasked only to serve the interests of a tiny, disproportionately wealthy group we can call the  parasite class… Every aspect of your life will be monitored and controlled, as we move towards the ultimate surveillance State. Your ability to work, to socialise, to travel, conduct business, access public services and to purchase essential goods and services will be dictated to you, and restricted, by the State, based upon your biosecurity or immunity status.”

Psychiatrist Testifies That Julian Assange Is “Preparing To Kill Himself In Prison” – by Steve Watson – https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/psychiatrist-testifies-julian-assange-preparing-kill-himself-prison – “The Daily Mail reports  that Professor Michael Kopelman testified during an extradition hearing in London that Assange has ‘begun making preparations to end his own life including confessing to a Catholic priest, drafting farewell letters to his family and drafting a will.’.. Kopelman, emeritus professor of neuropsychiatry at King’s College London, also said that Assange told him he experienced hearing voices in his head saying “we’re coming to get you.”.. ‘He reported auditory hallucinations, which were voices either inside or outside his head, somatic hallucinations, funny bodily experiences, these have now disappeared,’ Kopelman said… ‘The voices are things like, “you are dust, you are dead, we are coming to get you”. They are derogatory and persecutory,’ he continued, adding ‘They seem to have diminished. Subsequently the musical hallucinations have also reduced, and the somatic hallucinations have disappeared.’.. Kopelman even noted that Assange ‘reported a near-death experience and wondered if the CIA would find a way to get him or mess with his head’ noting that this “may or may not” be paranoia… Kopelman warned that ‘The risk of suicide arises out of clinical factors…but it is the imminence of extradition and or an actual extradition that would trigger the attempt, in my opinion.’

“Let Me Explain What Happens Next…” – A Reader Sums It All Up Very Ominously – by ‘Austrian Peter’ – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/let-me-explain-what-happens-next-reader-sums-it-all-very-ominously – “There is only one difference between now and full-on state oppression:   A change in the Zeitgeist... They need an event that will change the mood of the people – an event or a series of events that make us afraid of ‘them’. A psychological shock that will give the police the conviction that things are so bad ‘a little force is necessary’ to ensure things don’t get out of control. And then, magically, the current ‘temporary restrictions’ become state oppression. What could that game changer be?.. Imagine this November: The US has 100 cities descending into what looks like the start of civil war as patriots turn out to stop Antifa burning down Middle America. Kamala Harris is calling for the army to ‘evict’ Trump because he refuses to leave the White House on the grounds that he won the popular vote while the mail-in ballots were fraudulent… For the Brits, Brexit has caused problems at the ports – among other things some foodstuffs are not getting through. Germany’s economy has cratered after the EU stopped them exporting cars to the UK (Trumps already tariffed them), and the EU’s bank has insisted Germany let the 500 non-viable, medium sized biz (currently kept alive with emergency funding) go bankrupt.”

In Unprecedented Monetary Overhaul, The Fed Is Preparing To Deposit “Digital Dollars” Directly To “Each American” – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/loretta-mester-hints-fed-preparing-deposit-digital-dollars-directly-each-american – “To summarize, the wheels are already turning on a plan that sees the Fed depositing “digital dollars” to “each American”, a stunning development that essentially sees the Fed bypass Congress, endowing the Central Bank with targeted “fiscal stimulus” capabilities, and which could lead to a dramatic reflationary spike as it is the lower income quartile segments of US society that are the marginal price setters for economic goods and services. And having already implemented Average Inflation Targeting, the resulting burst of inflation would be viewed by the Fed as insufficient on its own (as it would have to persist for a long time over the “average” period whatever it may end up being), to tighten monetary policy. In fact, even as inflation rages – which some alternative inflationary measures to CPI suggest it already is – the Fed will have a semantic loophole in explaining just why it needs to keep inflation scorching hot even as the standard of living in America collapses to the benefit of a handful of asset holders… Absent a massive burst of inflation in the coming years which inflates away the hundreds of trillions in federal debt, the unprecedented debt tsunami that is coming would mean the end to the American way of life as we know it. And to do that, the Fed is now finalizing the last steps of a process that revolutionizes the entire fiat monetary system, launching digital dollars which effectively remove commercial banks as financial intermediaries, as they will allow the Fed itself to make direct deposits into Americans’ “digital wallets”, in the process also making Congress and the entire Legislative branch redundant, as a handful of technocrats quietly take over the United States.”

The Internet of Things is ExplodingComprehensive Guide to IoT Statistics You Need to Know in 2020 – by Kaylie Gyarmathy – https://www.vxchnge.com/blog/iot-statistics – “1. There Will be 41 Billion IoT Devices by 2027… That’s a lot of devices. When looking at the raw number of connected devices Business Insider predicts will be connected to the internet by the end of the decade, it’s easy to lose sight of how large the figure actually is. For context, take a moment to look at the difference between a million and a billion in terms of time: One million seconds is roughly equal to 11.5 days… One billion seconds is roughly equal to 31.75 years… The difference between a few million IoT devices and a few billion, then, is quite staggering. Other estimates that push IoT projections farther into the future provide even more striking numbers, forecasting as many as 125 billion IoT devices by 2030… 2. By 2023, 70% of Automobiles Will Be Connected to the Internet… Autonomous vehicles are coming, whether people like it or not. While precise numbers are difficult to determine, the automotive industry alone has invested over $100 billion on research and development of self-driving cars over the last five years alone. While driverless cars may not be taking over the highways soon, their need to gather and analyze huge amounts of data will demand more sophisticated edge data centers capable of directing the resulting digital traffic.”

How CDC/WHO will fake the effects of the COVID vaccine to make it look like a success – by Jon Rappoport – https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2020/09/22/how-cdc-will-fake-effects-of-covid-vaccine-make-it-look-like-success/ – “Making a vaccine look like it’s a champion isn’t difficult for public health agencies. There are a number of strategies… Of course, these fraudulent strategies would be serious crimes. But when has that stopped the CDC or the World Health Organization?.. In no particular order—- ONE: Rework the definition of a “COVID case.” Presently, the CDC absurdly allows doctors to diagnose a person with COVID who has a cough, or chills and fever, and lives in an area where cases are being claimed. No test necessary… So change this practice, once the vaccine is approved. Demand testing for a diagnosis. State that cough alone is not enough. Chills and fever must also be present. Require fever to be above 100… These and other changes would automatically shrink the number of cases. The drop in numbers would be attributed to the vaccine… …THIRTEEN: After the vaccine is introduced, slow down testing for a brief period. This will automatically reduce the rate of new cases. Attribute the decline to the vaccine… Committing these crimes are a walk in the park for public health agencies… And appointing official mouthpieces to carry lies to the public is as easy as training little Faucis to sit up and bark.”

From the If-You-Only-Read-One-Article-This-Month Desk: Hyperinflation, Fascism, & War: How The New World Order May Be Defeated Once More – by Matthew Ehret – http://thesaker.is/hyperinflation-fascism-and-war-how-the-new-world-order-may-be-defeated-once-more/ – “While the world’s attention is absorbed by tectonic shifts unfolding across America as “a perfect storm of civil war, and military coup threatens to undo both the elections and the very foundations of the republic itself, something very ominous has appeared “off of the radar” of most onlookers. This something is a financial collapse of the trans-Atlantic banks that threatens to unleash chaos upon the world. It is this collapse that underlies the desperate efforts being made by the neo-con drive for total war with Russia, China and other members of the growing Mutlipolar Alliance today… In recent articles, I have mentioned that the Bank of England-led “solution” to this oncoming financial blowout of the $1.5 quadrillion derivatives bubble is being pushed under the cover of a “Great Global Reset” which is an ugly and desperate effort to use COVID-19 as a cover for the imposition of a new post-covid world order operating system. Since the new “rules” of this new system are very similar to the 1923 Bank of England “solution” to Germany’s economic chaos which eventually required a fascist governance mechanism to impose it onto the masses, I wish to take a deeper look at the causes and effects of Weimar Germany’s completely un-necessary collapse into hyperinflation and chaos during the period of 1919-1923… In this essay, I will go further to examine how those same architects of hyperfinflation came close to establishing a global bankers’ dictatorship in 1933 and how that early attempt at a New World Order was fortunately derailed through a bold fight which has been written out of popular history books.”

Australia Pushes New Measure To Detain COVID “Conspiracy Theorists” – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/australia-push-new-measure-detain-conspiracy-theorists – “And if there is one thing that terrifies increasingly tyrannical governments, it’s a loss of control of the narrative, which is why the  Australian government is getting a jump start on curbing any so-called “conspiracy theorists” daring to spread information that questions the fear-mongering being used to keep Aussie citizens under lock and key… If passed, the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) allows the government to detain anyone labeled as a “high risk” or likely to spread COVID-19 negligently… A state government spokesman told The Age that the rule could be applied to ‘conspiracy theorists who refuse to self-isolate or severely drug-affected or mentally impaired people who do not have the capacity to quarantine.’ Those arrested under the new rule will be housed in quarantine facilities… In a glimpse of what is ahead, authorities have already arrested a Melbourne woman for allegedly writing pro-anti lockdown posts on social media… Notably, after widespread social media account deletions, TheConversation notes that QAnon has attracted a lot of followers in Australia, so what comes next? ‘Re-education centers’ for QAnons?’

FBI Agent Who Discovered Hillary’s Emails On Weiner Laptop Claims He Was Told To Erase Computer – by Rusty Weiss – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/fbi-agent-who-discovered-hillarys-emails-weiner-laptop-claims-he-was-told-erase-computer – “Robertson alleges that the FBI did nothing for a month after discovering Clinton’s emails on the Anthony Weiner laptop… It was only after he spoke with the U.S. Attorney’s office overseeing the case, he claims, that the agency took action… ‘He had told his bosses about the Clinton emails weeks ago,’ the book contends  . ‘Nothing had happened.’.. ‘Or rather, the only thing that had happened was his boss had instructed Robertson to erase his computer work station.’.. This, according to the Post report, was to ‘ensure there was no classified material on it,’ but also would eliminate any trail of his actions taken during the investigation… A book written by James B . Stewart in 2019 asserts that FBI agents had referred to the discovery of Hillary Clinton’s emails as an “oh s***” moment.”.. One agent admitted there were “ten times” as many emails as Comey admitted to publicly… These allegations make it difficult to say Comey did not lie to the public – if not Congress… Robertson’s story is being revealed as U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating the FBI’s role in the origins of the Russia probe into President Trump’s campaign… Recently released documents from the DOJ show multiple FBI officials had “accidentally wiped” their phones after the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) requested them… Erasing evidence is a consistent theme for the Obama-era FBI… Meanwhile, the Senate Homeland Security Committee has voted to authorize over three dozen subpoenas and depositions of some of these officials, including Comey.”

Syrian Offensive to Retake Idlib from US Backed Terrorists Imminent – by Isabel Ivanescu with Andrew Greco – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2020/09/21/syrian-offensive-to-retake-idlib-from-us-backed-terrorists-imminent/ – “A series of recent events indicate Russia and Turkey have been negotiating an agreement providing for a partial Turkish withdrawal from greater Idlib… Turkey withdrew hundreds of Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) special forces and infantry and Turkish-backed opposition fighters from southern Idlib towns in the Jabal Zawiya area (Abdita, Ahsam, Al-Magara, and Beliun) on September 8.[4]  Turkey claimed the withdrawal was a redeployment related to Turkey’s ongoing maritime disputes with Greece, but Turkey may have used its dispute with Greece as cover for actions consistent with an impending deal with Russia in Idlib… Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov expressed confidence that Turkey and Russia would succeed in “liberating” Idlib Province from terrorists in a press conference on September 7. The statement was oddly optimistic following a string of Salafi-jihadist attacks on Russian-Turkish joint patrols along the M4 highway from late July to early September… Pro-Assad forces have brought enough reinforcements to the Idlib frontlines since the March 5 de-escalation agreement between Russia and Turkey to enable an attack. Low-level frontline fighting and limited Russian and regime artillery and airstrikes have all persisted despite the de-escalation agreement. The operational tempo of pro-regime attacks increased in July as pro-Assad forces intensified their shelling of frontline towns and probing attacks against opposition defenses. Russian airstrikes and regime shelling of opposition positions now an almost daily occurrence.”

Highly emotional weirdness toward the end.

The UN Ignores NGO’s Warnings About Mandated Vaccines – by The Planetary Association for Clean Energy, Inc. – https://www.technocracy.news/the-un-ignores-ngos-warnings-about-mandated-vaccines/ – “However, compulsory vaccination violates the right to informed consent, one of the most fundamental ethics in medicine and a human right recognized under international law, including the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of 1966, the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights of 2005, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its Optional Protocol of 2006 and under internationally recognized agreements such as the Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences International Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical Research Involving Human Subjects of 2002, and the World Medical Association Declaration Of Helsinki of 1964, revised in 2013… The United Nations (UN) and WHO are legally obligated to uphold the right to informed consent yet have instead been complicit in violating it.”

Police engage in SHOVING MATCH with protesters at major rally against coronavirus measures in London (VIDEO)https://www.rt.com/uk/501146-police-coronavirus-protest-london/ – “Tensions ran high at a large rally against coronavirus measures in London, as protesters pressured the police to choose if they were with the people or with the authorities responsible for the restrictions… Several thousand demonstrators flocked to Trafalgar Square on Saturday in violation of the ban on gatherings of more than six people… At one point, the crowd started advancing on the police, who were trying to maintain order at the event. They chanted: “Choose your side,” demanding the officers decide if they are with the people who are suffering under the Covid measures, or the authorities who are imposing the restrictions… Footage from RT’s Ruptly video agency shows the officers and demonstrators shoving and pushing each other. When the police tried to make arrests, the protesters locked hands to prevent anyone from being extracted from the crowd.”

US Sends Bradley Armored Vehicles to Syria in “Signal to Russia” After US-Russia Road War Claims First Casualties – by Courtney Kube – https://www.anti-empire.com/us-to-send-bradley-armored-vehicles-to-syria-in-signal-to-russia-after-incident/ – “The most serious incident this year occurred several days later, when seven U.S. soldiers were injured when Russia military vehicles sideswiped a U.S. military vehicle in northeast Syria. Three U.S. officials said the Russian vehicles intentionally collided with the Americans and then several Russian helicopters flew low and fast over the scene, which one official said was “extremely provocative.” The Russian vehicles were outside of their agreed-upon operating area without notice, the officials said. [Agreed upon by the Pentagon. Obviously, the Russians would not be there if it was their impression such a thing had been agreed upon.].. U.S. Central Command spokesperson Capt. Bill Urban characterized their actions as ‘deliberately provocative and aggressive.’.. McKenzie said the U.S. continues to conduct security patrols with the SDF but the Syrian partners are actually carrying out the majority of the tactical operations and actual fighting. “Those patrols are always conducted with our SDF partners. You’ll never see a U.S. element out there moving alone, it will always have SDF affiliated with it when they move.” [Actually, no SDF (Syrian Kurds) is visible in the video of sideswiping incident when US vehicles moved to interfere with Russian movement, or in numerous other videos of Americans trying to block the Russians’ path.]”

BLUEPRINT FOR OVERTHROW: TRANSITION INTEGRITY PROJECT – by Rosa Koire – https://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com/the-way-we-see-itour-blog/blueprint-for-overthrow-transition-integrity-project – “Nicolas Berggruen, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the World Economic Forum, is a billionaire who has spent at least 10 years and millions of dollars in ‘reinventing and restructuring democracy.’  What could that mean?  Through his Berggruen Institute this financier/stock market savant has suavely assembled groups of ‘influencers’ to do just that:  to write books, form spin-off groups, and endow positions in business and universities. Nicolas Berggruen is the force behind the Transition Integrity Project… I first became aware of Berggruen in 2012 when his think tank ‘Think Long’ produced a ballot initiative in California with the intention of changing the California constitution.  ‘Think Long’ which included in its elite membership Condelezza Rice, Willie Brown, Gray Davis, and Eric Schmidt (Google CEO) was an alliance of neo-cons and ‘progressives’ who wanted to use the California initiative process to literally craft a new set of rules for governance.  It was, as I called it in a speech against their Proposition 31 which I gave at the Los Angeles Federal Building, a razor blade buried in a candy apple—-a Trojan horse.  This craftily worded manipulation proposed using Agenda 21 Sustainable Development federal grants to stealthily implement regional governance… Now, what is the Transition Integrity Project?  It’s a group (including John Podesta and Michael Steele,  former Repub Party head) of hard core neo-liberals and neo-con Never Trumpers who are consolidated into a force for insurrection: Color Revolutionaries.  After cutting their teeth on Argentina, Ukraine, Venezuela, Egypt, etc they’re ready for the Big Kahuna; the United States. Their premise is ‘What if Trump loses and won’t leave the White House?’ But really the deal is ‘How will we respond when the ambiguous results of this seriously flawed takeover are exposed?’ Berggruen paid for and organized this tabletop exercise and, much like Event 201 and Dark Winter, they’re readying for a revolutionary civil war here in the US.  The overthrow of the republic is being war-gamed.”

New Zealand With a Record 12% GDP Drop. Borders to Stay Sealed Until at Least 2022. – by Matthew Brockett – https://www.anti-empire.com/new-zealand-with-a-record-12-gdp-drop-borders-to-stay-sealed-until-at-least-2022/ New Zealand is going through a sharper but shorter [LOL. It ain’t over yet.] economic shock than it experienced during the depression, when GDP fell 5.3% in 1931 and a further 7.1% in 1932, according to academic research. Nor is the Covid slump as bad as initially feared.

Bandimere Speedway draws thousands to political rally in defiance of Jefferson County orders – Media Remains Silent – by Sloan Dickey – https://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/bandimere-speedway-draws-thousands-to-political-rally-in-defiance-of-jefferson-county-orders – ‘Thousands of supporters gathered at Bandimere speedway on Tuesday night, though they did not gather to watch racing. This, in many attendees’ words, was a peaceful protest… The Stop the COVID Chaos Rally was held to promote two lawsuits being filed against Colorado policies related to COVID-19. The first is being filed by Bandimere Speedway against Jefferson County for its health regulations on businesses. The second is being filed by Colorado House minority leader Rep. Patrick Neville against Gov. Jared Polis’s emergency mask mandate… Bandimere was specifically warned by the health department not to break the social distancing guidelines put forward by the county and state… A letter from Jefferson County Public Health sent to the race track on Tuesday told the operators to “follow all public health orders.”.. ‘Given the absence of an approved plan for this event, we are hopeful that Bandimere intends to cap attendance at 175 attendees or less,’ it read… Photos from the event show attendees numbered not in the hundreds, but the thousands.”

New Zealand With a Record 12% GDP Drop. Borders to Stay Sealed Until at Least 2022. – by Matthew Brockett – https://www.anti-empire.com/new-zealand-with-a-record-12-gdp-drop-borders-to-stay-sealed-until-at-least-2022/ New Zealand is going through a sharper but shorter [LOL. It ain’t over yet.] economic shock than it experienced during the depression, when GDP fell 5.3% in 1931 and a further 7.1% in 1932, according to academic research. Nor is the Covid slump as bad as initially feared.

Treason – by Mike Whitney – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55587.htm – “The Transition Integrity Project (TIP) is a shadowy group of government, military and media elites who have concocted a plan to spread mayhem and disinformation following the November 3 presidential elections. The strategy takes advantage of the presumed delay in determining the winner of the upcoming election. (due to the deluge of mail-in votes.) The interim period is expected to intensify partisan warfare creating the perfect environment for disseminating propaganda and inciting street violence. The leaders of TIP believe that a mass mobilization will help them to achieve what Russiagate could not, that is, the removal Donald Trump via an illicit coup conjured up by behind-the-scenes powerbrokers and their Democrat allies. Here’s a little more background from an article by Chris Farrell at the Gatestone Institute: ‘In one of the greatest public disinformation campaigns in American history — the Left and their NeverTrumper allies (under the nom de guerre: “Transition Integrity Project”) released a 22-page report in August 2020 “war gaming” four election crisis scenarios:….The outcome of each TIP scenario results in street violence and political impasse… …Is it possible that the leadership of the American Left, along with their NeverTrumper allies, are busy talking themselves into advocating and promoting street violence as a response to a presidential election?’.. This is a full-blown color revolution authored and supported by the same oligarchs and deep-state honchoes that have opposed Trump from the very beginning. They’re not going to back down or call off the dogs until the job is done and Trump is gone. And when the dust settles, Trump will likely be charged, tried, sentenced and imprisoned. His fortune will be seized, his family will be financially ruined, and his closest advisors and allies will be prosecuted on fabricated charges. There’s not going to be a “graceful transition” of power if Trump loses. He will face the full wrath of the scheming mandarins he has frustrated for the last 4 years. These are the men who applauded when Saddam and Ghaddafi were savagely butchered. Will Trump face the same fate as them?”

Ashton Kutcher’s NGO Supplies Police with ‘Free’ CIA-linked Surveillance Tool to ‘Protect Kids’ – A suspect NGO claiming to combat child trafficking by providing surveillance tech to US police has allowed Amazon to continue supplying U.S. law enforcement with facial recognition software despite the tech giant’s moratorium on its sale to police. – by Whitney Webb – https://unlimitedhangout.com/2020/09/investigative-reports/ashton-kutchers-ngo-supplies-police-with-free-cia-linked-surveillance-tool-to-protect-kids/ – “At the time the moratorium was announced,  The New York Times noted that “the announcement was a striking change for Amazon…” due to the fact that, “more than other big technology companies, Amazon has resisted calls to slow its deployment.” Amazon’s efforts to ensure the widespread adoption of its facial recognition software gained notoriety after a study found that Rekognition falsely tied 28 members of Congress, most of whom were politicians of color, to mugshots, causing critics to accuse Amazon’s product of both racial bias and inaccuracy… However, what The Times and other outlets failed to pick up on, then and now, is the fact that Amazon’s Rekognition is still being supplied to U.S. police, despite its official moratorium. Indeed, U.S. law enforcement agencies are still being offered Amazon’s facial recognition software by a NGO partnered with Amazon that was created by actor Ashton Kutcher, who frequently co-invests with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos… That NGO, called “Thorn,” continues to supply the controversial software to law enforcement agencies around the country under the guise of helping police “combat child trafficking.” ”

From the What-Could-Go-Wrong Desk: Radiall proposes ‘massive modular’ 6G mesh networks with tiny antennas – by Jeremy Horwitz – https://venturebeat.com/2020/09/14/radiall-proposes-massive-modular-6g-mesh-networks-with-tiny-antennas/ – “Though the earliest 5G devices aren’t yet two years old, researchers started laying the groundwork for the next generation of cellular technology  — 6G — well before 5G networks launched across the world. Nothing’s set in stone, but a team at telecom company Radiall is advocating a radical shift in the very concept of “cellular” infrastructure, using many small, inexpensive antennas as an alternative to the large antennas 5G and older systems rely upon.. Radiall isn’t the first to suggest that 6G might shift (from a “cell” based) to a mesh-like infrastructure, but the company provides a clear sense of how the evolution might happen. A central hub would still connect to base station radios, but the base stations would also be connected to one another — potentially using millimeter wave connections rather than fiber. Instead of relying on a single base station for data, devices such as phones could connect to two or more base stations at once, a multi-connectivity system that would create “micro-cells.” Picture all of the home and business Wi-Fi routers in a neighborhood collectively offering wireless data connections to whatever devices are nearby, and you get the basic idea.”

How The British Government Is Wading Into The Swamp Of Despotism… One Muzzle At A Time – by Peter Hitchens – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/how-british-government-wading-swamp-despotism-one-muzzle-time – “The Government has no legal right to impose the severe and miserable restrictions on our lives with which it has wrecked the economy, brought needless grief to the bereaved and the lonely and destroyed our personal liberty… This is the verdict of one of the most distinguished lawyers in the country, the retired Supreme Court Judge Lord Sumption… He said last week in a podcast interview: ‘I don’t myself believe that the Act confers on the Government the powers that it has purported to exercise.’.. He was referring to the Public Health Act of 1984, the basis for almost all the sheaves of increasingly hysterical decrees against normal life which the Health Secretary Matt Hancock has issued since March. I promise you that it is not usual for a retired senior judge to use such language in public… This 1984 Act was drawn up mainly to give local magistrates the power to quarantine the sick… Nothing in it remotely justifies these astonishing moves – house arrest, travel restrictions, harsh limits on visiting family members, interference with funerals and weddings, closure of churches, compulsory muzzles, bans on assembly and protest… English law just does not allow an Act of Parliament to be stretched so far.”

Backlash After UK Policing Minister Encourages People To Spy On Neighbours For ‘Covid Contraventions’ – “Calling on people to spy on each other is not a particularly good situation to be in” – by Steve Watson – https://summit.news/2020/09/15/backlash-after-uk-policing-minister-encourages-people-to-spy-on-neighbours-for-covid-contraventions/ – “British citizens made their feelings known after the Policing Minister suggested that people should spy on their friends and neighbours and report them to the authorities if they see them breaking Covid rules… Minister Kit Malthouse’s idea was compared to the East German Stasi by many, after he encouraged reporting neighbours gathering in more than groups of six, saying it was a viable option… ‘There is obviously the non-emergency number that people can ring to report issues, if they wish to,’ the minister told the BBC Radio 4’s ‘Today’ show. ‘If people are concerned, if they do think there’s a contravention, then that option is open to them.’.. Former British Supreme Court Justice Lord Jonathan Sumption denounced the new regulations as “unenforceable,” noting that the only way the plan would work is if a “Stasi-style” network of “snoopers and informers” is formed.”

Virtual School Dangers: Police State Education Comes into Your Home Violating the 4th Amendment – by John W. Whitehead – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/virtual-school-dangers-police-state-education-comes-into-your-home-violating-the-4th-amendment/ – “As a result, over the course of the past 30 years, the need to keep the schools “safe” from drugs and weapons has become a thinly disguised, profit-driven campaign to transform them into quasi-prisons, complete with surveillance cameras, metal detectors, police patrols, zero tolerance policies, lock downs, drug sniffing dogs, school resource officers, strip searches, and active shooter drills… Suddenly, under school zero tolerance policies, students were being punished with suspension, expulsion, and even arrest for childish behavior and minor transgressions such as playing cops and robbers on the playground, bringing LEGOs to school, or having a food fight… As a result, students are being subjected to police tactics such as handcuffs, leg shackles, tasers and excessive force for “acting up,” in addition to being ticketed, fined and sent to court for behavior perceived as defiant, disruptive or disorderly such as spraying perfume and writing on a desk… Significant numbers of schools within the nation’s 13,000 school districts have opted to hold their classes online, in-person or a hybrid of the two, fearing further outbreaks of the virus. Yet this unprecedented foray into the virtual world carries its own unique risks… Apart from the technological logistics of ensuring that millions of students across the country have adequate computer and internet access, consider the Fourth Amendment ramifications of having students attend school online via video classes from the privacy of their homes… Suddenly, you’ve got government officials (in this case, teachers or anyone at the school on the other end of that virtual connection) being allowed carte blanche visual access to the inside of one’s private home without a warrant.”

In China, smart locks are being used to track citizens and enforce lockdowns – by Cindy Harper – https://reclaimthenet.org/in-china-smart-locks-are-being-used-to-track-citizens/ – “However, in reality, smart locks are being used by the government to increase surveillance. With preventing the spread of coronavirus being the main promoted narrative, smart locks are giving the government more data they can use to control residents. These locks, which require an ID, facial recognition, or a smartphone app, are linked to the various big data platforms run by the government… The high-tech locks are slowly being introduced in residential properties in various parts of China… The public is not too thrilled about smart locks. In Diankou, a town in Zhuji, residents told Bitter Winter that they were unhappy that they were being forced to install the 400 Yuan ($58) smart locks on rental properties else they are forbidden from renting. One resident was particularly annoyed for getting locked out of his rental apartment because he forgot his smartphone… A police officer claimed that most people are “irritated” by the smart locks and that he finds supervising their installation as a duty that is “very difficult to perform.”

Russia’s Rezonans-NE Radar, Capable Of Tracking Hypersonic Flighthttps://southfront.org/russias-rezonans-ne-radar-capable-of-tracking-hypersonic-flight/ – “Some media reported that after the United States killed Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Al-Quds Special Forces in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the US planned to use a F-35 fighter jet to strike another blow against Tehran, but it was ultimately canceled, since the F-35 was spotted by an Iranian radar station, presumably the Russian-made Rezonans-NE… Knutov noted that the Rezonans-NE radar is of great importance for ensuring Russia’s defense capability.”

“Novichok” Does Not Work: Deadly-Poisoned Navalny Wakes Uphttps://southfront.org/novichok-does-not-work-deadly-poisoned-navalny-wakes-up/ – “Moscow’s permanent mission to the European Union issued a statement on the matter: ‘In recent weeks we have been witnessing a rapidly growing information campaign in the EU – both in official circles and media – over an incident which occurred with a Russian political activist and blogger Alexey Navalny on 20 August 2020. Not claiming to be experts in toxicology, we still consider it necessary to draw your attention to multiple inconsistencies regarding this case. In the light of forthcoming debate in the European Parliament we call on EU officials and MEPs to look into a number of following questions… Would there be any rationale behind the Russian authorities’ alleged decision to poison Alexey Navalny with the use of a military-grade chemical nerve agent of the “Novichok” group, which falls under CWC ban, in a Russian city with half a million population and then to do their utmost to save his life and let him go for further medical treatment to Germany, where “Novichok” could be identified?’ ”

CIA Sponsored the SBU Operation To Kidnap 33 Russians In Belarushttps://southfront.org/cia-sponsored-the-sbu-operation-to-kidnap-33-russians-in-belarus/ – “In the meantime Ukrainian services told their Belarusian equivalents that these persons are Wagner PMC associates who came to “destabilize the situation” prior to the elections. The Russians were arrested in Minsk and accused first of terrorism and later in preparing mass disorders. Kiev sent a request for extradition those who fought against Ukrainian forces on the Donbass…And nobody knows how it would have ended if it weren’t for Russian agencies uncovering the Ukrainian intelligence services plan. And sending its details to Minsk… It is also now clear that certain CIA officials from the Kiev office stood behind the operation. A source in Russian intelligence told the details to the KP journalist… Both SBU and Ukraine’s foreign intelligence denied their involvement. The new director of the Main Directorate of Intelligence at Ukraine’s MoD, Kirill Budanov, said outright this was an FSB provocation. At the same time Ukrainian journalist Gordon bragged even his interview with Lukashenko  was part of the special operation… But who likes to admit to a failure? One wants to look like a winner. Hence the mutually contradictory statements and actions, deliberate and spontaneous leaks to the media and the Internet. If you add the clear shock displayed by Ukrainian authorities once they realized their dirty designs to “covertly” use a friendly country were uncovered. And they also now had to explain themselves to the CIA.”

Saudi Air Force Is Leveling Yemeni Capital To Ground In Response To Houthi Strikes On Riyadhhttps://southfront.org/saudi-air-force-is-leveling-yemeni-capital-to-ground/ – “The Saudi-led coalition has been bombing Yemen with a renewed energy following the recent missile and drone strikes on the Kingdom’s capital by the Ansar Allah movement (also known as the Houthis)… According to pro-Houthi sources, Saudi warplanes conducted over 60 airstrikes on different targets across the country during the past few days. They insist that the most of the targets that were hit were objects of civilian infrastructure. At the same time, Riyadh claims that it has been precisely bombing Houthi military positions…   However, the main target of the Houthi advance is still the Maas base. Yemeni sources claim that as soon as the base falls, Houthi units will launch an advance on the provincial capital… So, the Houthi government now has a good chance to take back the city and the entire province… This development will become a panful blow to the Saudi leadership and became yet another piece of smoking gun evidence showcasing the failure of its military campaign in Yemen. In response, the Saudi Air Force will likely continue its intense bombing campaign aiming to level Sanaa and other big cities in the hands of the Houthis. The problem with this approach is that this very campaign forces the Houthis to conduct more intense and regular missile and drone attacks on targets inside Saudi Arabia itself.”

‘Rogue’ Chinese Virologist Claims She Has “Evidence” COVID-19 Was Created In A Lab – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/chinese-doctor-claims-she-has-evidence-coronavirus-was-created-lab – “In April, Yan reportedly fled Hong Kong and escaped to America in an effort to evade persecution and to ‘spread the truth’ about the pandemic… ‘From the beginning, I decided to get this message out in the world and it was very scary in the world because I’m a doctor and I knew if I don’t tell the truth to the world I will regret it myself in the future.’..’I never thought this would happen when I did the secret investigation, I [thought] I would speak to my supervisor and they would do the right thing on behalf of the government.’..‘But what I saw was nobody responding to that. People are scared of the government but this was something urgent, and Chinese New Year time, [I knew] this was a dangerous virus and all these things meant I could not keep silent, there are human beings and global health [at risk].’.. China’s national health commission has denied that the outbreak started in the lab, insisting there is “no evidence” the new coronavirus was created in a laboratory. Beiing has already scapegoated a large group of local party officials for the errors… But Dr. Li’s testimony remains extremely compelling.”

9/11 Was an Israeli Job – How America was neoconned into World War IV – by Laurent Guyénot – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55569.htm – “Thanks to courageous investigators, many anomalies in the official explanation of the events of 9/11 were posted on the Internet in the following months, providing evidence that this was a false flag operation, and that Osama bin Laden was innocent, as he repeatedly declared in the Afghan and Pakistani press and on Al Jazeera.[1] The proofs of this appalling fraud have been accumulating ever since, and are now accessible to anyone willing to spend a few hours of research on the Web. (Although, while preparing this article, I noticed that Google is now making access to that research more difficult than it was five years ago, artificially prioritizing anti-conspiracy sites.).. Among the growing number of Americans who disbelieve the official version of the 9/11 attacks, two basic theories are in competition: I called them “inside job” and “Mossad job”… The second one claims that the masterminds were members of a powerful Israeli network deeply infiltrated in all spheres of power within the US, including media, government, military and secret services… This “Mossad job” thesis has been gaining ground since Alan Sabrosky, a professor at the U.S. Army War College and the U.S. Military Academy, published in July 2012 an article entitled “Demystifying 9/11: Israel and the Tactics of Mistake”, where he voiced his conviction that September 11th was ‘a classic Mossad-orchestrated operation.’.. We can notice from the outset that incriminating Israelis or Arabs are both “outside job” theories (in fact, they are mirror images of each other, which is understandable in light of what Gilad Atzmon explains about Jewish “projected guilt”).[2] Before even looking at the evidence, “outside job” sounds more credible that “inside job”. There is something monstrous in the idea that a government can deceive and terrorize its own citizens by killing thousands of them, just for starting a series of wars that are not even in the nation’s interest. By comparison, a foreign power attacking the U.S. under the false flag of a third power almost seems like fair play.”

The Great Novichok Poisoning Hoax 2.0 – by Stephen Lendmann – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/great-novichok-poisoning-hoax-20 – “In its latest edition, Der Spiegel reported the following: ‘Leading politicians in Germany from all mainstream parties are demanding that construction on the natural gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 be suspended as a result of the poisoning of Alexey Navalny.’.. ‘Merkel’s government is so far resisting such calls,’ adding: It’s ‘clear that Germany’s relationship with Russia will change significantly.’..It’s ‘likely that the Kremlin was behind the poisoning (sic). And Russian President Vladimir Putin (sic).’.. ‘(A) debate has erupted over which sanctions the German government should now consider applying.’.. ‘The only penalty that would primarily hurt Moscow would be a construction stop on the almost completed Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline.’.. Some members of ‘Merkel’s governing coalition…are increasingly demanding that the pipeline project be abandoned.’.. ‘Within the government, however, that step remains off limits. Officially at least.’.. On Thursday, an EU Political and Security Committee meeting was held in Brussels, the Navalny issue discussed… EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said the bloc is considering “restrictive measures” against Russia… At the same time, his spokesman said as long as there’s uncertainty over who may be responsible for Navalny’s condition, discussing punitive measures is premature…  No evidence of a crime against Navalny exists.”

WHO WAS BEHIND THE BEIRUT BOMB BLAST? (28 min)- by master researcher and analyst Brendon O’Connell

Large Number Of Russian Warships Seen Deployed Between Syria & Cyprus – Via AlMasdarNews.com – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/large-number-russian-warships-observed-deployed-between-syria-cyprus – “A large number of Russian warships were recently tracked off the coasts of Syria and Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean region, the Russian publication  Avia.Pro reported Thursday… According to the online publication, “experts are seriously concerned about the presence of at least 15 Russian warships and submarines off the coast of Syria. This is the first time such a large military formation has been seen here, which raises suspicions about whether Russia plans to engage in a military special operation against jihadists using the navy… This Russian naval buildup also comes at a time of increased tension between Turkey, Cyprus and Greece in the eastern Mediterranean, as the latter two countries have accused Ankara of encroaching on their territorial waters.”

Former CIA Officer: “Violence Will Explode” If Trump Wins Re-Election – by Paul Joseph Watson – https://summit.news/2020/09/11/former-cia-officer-violence-will-explode-if-trump-wins-re-election/ – “In an op-ed for Revolver News, Sam Faddis characterizes the recent riots, described as “mostly peaceful” by the media, as nothing less than an “insurrection.”.. Faddis says that the rioters are not merely unorganized mobs, but a ‘manifestation of years of preparation, organization, and sponsorship from a vast network of foundations and front organizations,’ including George Soros’s Open Society… Faddis points out that the rioters have openly stated their goal, the ‘abolition of the United States as we know it and its replacement with a Marxist state.’.. The former CIA officer predicts another wave of violence if Trump wins re-election, but also warns that the unrest will continue even if Biden wins because the revolutionaries will seek to take full control of his administration… ‘That is why it is profoundly delusional to believe the riots of the past three months will end with the November election. They will not,’ writes Faddis… Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also said that Americans must get used to the idea that the election result may take “weeks” to be confirmed after voting on November 3 and that “civil unrest” is likely… Trump supporters see this as clear intention that Democrats will refuse to honor the election result if the president wins… Twitter has also announced it will remove any tweets claiming victory before election results are certified, which will essentially blocked Trump supporters from challenging the legitimacy of any delay in announcing the winner.”

Poisoning Nord Stream-2 – by Finian Cunningham – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55543.htm – “The Navalny case comes at an opportune time. Last week, Chancellor Merkel was insisting that Navalny’s illness did not impinge on the economic matter of Nord Stream-2. Then this week, German military intelligence announce they have “unequivocal proof” that Navalny was poisoned with Novichok, a Soviet-era chemical weapon. Now in a blizzard of accusations, the finger of blame is being jabbed at the Kremlin… And most tellingly, the biggest political repercussion is the peremptory demand for Merkel to abandon Nord Stream-2… Let’s put events in perspective. When Navalny became ill on a flight to Moscow from Siberia on August 20, the Russian doctors treating him found no traces of poisons in his body, and specifically not organophosphate-type nerve agents, such as Novichok. The Russians assessed that Navalny’s illness was due to a metabolic disorder such as extremely low blood sugar, which would not be implausible if he reportedly suffers from diabetes… The German medics who treated Navalny when he was flown to Berlin on August 22 also did not detect specific poison agents. They did claim to test positive for cholinesterase inhibitors which replicated what their Russian counterparts had found… But unlike the Russians who attributed the substances to a wide range of possible legal pharmaceutical drugs, the Berlin medics made the dramatic assertion that they believed a nerve poison was involved… Surely, the dispute could be independently resolved if both sides cooperate… But that’s just it. The German side has refused, pointedly, to engage with the Russian doctors or state prosecutors to establish the cause of Navalny’s apparent illness. Instead, Berlin has rushed to make grave allegations against Moscow along with its Western allies as if in a pre-determined response aimed at incrimination… Without providing a chain of custody for its sample evidence purportedly showing the use of Novichok against Navalny, then all accusations made by Berlin are null and void, failing basic standards of the due legal process. The onus is on Berlin to substantiate, not on Moscow to answer questions based on innuendo and prejudice… At this stage in the strange affair the biggest question of who gains points to those politicians on both sides of the Atlantic who have been clamouring to sabotage the Nord Stream-2 gas project.” – Also by Finian: Navalny False-Flag Authors Invent New Twist to Cover Lieshttps://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55562.htm – ” September 11, 2020 “Information Clearing House”  So now the Navalny poison episode takes on a new twist with German military intelligence subsequently claiming they found traces of Novichok on a bottle of water the Russian dissident had purportedly been drinking from. Rather, it sounds more like the authors of this false-flag operation have “bottled” – meaning became unnerved by the absurdities inherent in their own narrative.”

America’s Color Revolution – by Paul Craig Roberts – https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/09/12/americas-color-revolution/ – “I have provided evidence that the military/security complex, using the media and the Democrats, intends to turn the November election into a color revolution – https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/09/08/democrats-have-planned-a-coup-if-trump-wins-reelection/  and  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/09/10/the-democrats-are-fronting-for-the-cia-deep-states-color-revolution/  and  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2020/09/10/the-united-states-its-constitution-have-two-months-left/ . The CIA is very experienced at color revolutions, having pulled them off in a number of countries where the existing government did not suit the CIA.  As we have known  since CIA Director John Brennan’s denunciations of President Trump, Trump doesn’t suit the CIA either. As far as the CIA is concerned, Trump is no different from Hugo Chavez, Nicolas Maduro, Charles de Gaulle, Manuel Zelaya, Evo Morales, Viktor Yanukovych, and a large number of others… Russiagate was a coup that failed, followed by the failed Impeachgate coup.  Faced with Trump’s reelection and the realization that upon reelection Trump will be able to deal with the treason against him, the Deep State has decided to take him out with a color revolution… The scenarios for what the American, British, and European media assume to be a necessary color revolution  to drive Trump from office are: 1) Trump loses the election, refuses to leave office and must be dislodged or democracy is lost. 2) Trump wins the election by fraud and must be dislodged or democracy is lost… The scenarios do not accommodate Trump actually winning the election by the vote of the people.  That outcome is outside the possibilities. According to the media, Trump can only lose or steal the election.”

Australia Is A Full Scale Pilot Test For The New World Order – by Mac Slavo – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/australia-full-scale-pilot-test-new-world-order – “Several journalists and content creators have noticed that Australia looks like the most totalitarian police state that has existed in recent history.  It has become a full-scale pilot test for the elitists to see how well they can implement the New World Order... Australians have been subjected to some of the most horrendous basic human rights and dignity violations during this entire scamdemic… The elitists are using Australia to test out these authoritarian measures, such as getting the public used to a police state in which the military and police both patrol the streets ready to commit violence against other humans for refusing to quarantine when not sick or not wearing their New World Order issued muzzle…I mean, face mask... ‘These guys know full well what they are doing. They are psychopaths, but they aren’t stupid,’ says Brian in the above video. The politicians are redistributing both wealth and power away from the public and consolidating it into their own hands. We are in big trouble if we cannot get the military and the police who are committing violence on behalf of the tyrants to realize what they are doing to humanity… All of this is over 17 new cases of COVID-19. This absolutely horrifying that people continue to buy this scam… ‘Heavy-handed tyranny and oppression is happening everywhere,’ Brian adds… If you don’t think this is coming back to the United States in the form of a second lockdown, think again.  The media has been preparing us for a “dark winter” and a “second wave” since the first false wave happened.”

Russia Sends Elite Airborne Troops To Belarus For Drills As Putin Hosts Embattled Lukashenko – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/russia-sends-elite-airborne-troops-belarus-drills-putin-meets-embattled-lukashenko – “Russian state media reports that the country’s airborne forces will be deployed to Belarus for joint military drills from Monday through September 25… Despite the ‘Slavic Fraternity’ drills being an annual pre-planned event hosted by Belarusian armed forces, the deployment comes at an intensifying moment of continued mass anti-Lukashenko protests after denunciations by the opposition that the Aug.9 national election was “rigged”… ‘In accordance with the schedule of international events for 2020, the planned joint Belarusian-Russian tactical exercise Slavic Fraternity, which has been held annually since 2015, will be held from 14 to 25 September at the Brestsky training ground in Belarus’, the Russian defense ministry said over the weekend.” – Comment: Not only are Nato troops holding exercises on Lithuanian territory near the Belarus border, the U.S. has sent in several hundred special forces troops for them. Add to that the growingly belacose statements on the order of the need for The West to be able to send armed forces into countries that are not following “International Guidelines” for the handling of the “dire” Covid Emergency, and we may be seeing the ground being laid for actions that could literally trigger a hot war.

“I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This”: Shippers Using West Coast Ports Can’t Book Rail On BNSF And Union Pacific – by Stas Margaroni – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/ive-never-seen-anything-shippers-using-west-coast-ports-cant-book-rail-bnsf-and-union – ”

“I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This”: Shippers Using West Coast Ports Can’t Book Rail On BNSF And Union Pacific – by Stas Margaroni – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/ive-never-seen-anything-shippers-using-west-coast-ports-cant-book-rail-bnsf-and-union – “The result of the research was that: ‘The railroads will not take any bookings right now and so all the containers going to and from the West Coast to places such as Chicago and Memphis must go by truck.’.. The consultant cited the following trucking rates per container as examples: ● Los Angeles/ Long Beach to Chicago: $7000. ●  LA/LB to New Berlin, Wisconsin: $6,700. ● LA/LB to Nashville, Tennessee: $7,200. ● LA/LB to Dallas, Texas: $5000. ● LA/LB to Jacksonville, Florida: $8,800… The consultant said that in the past it had been possible to truck a container coast-to-coast for $2,000: ‘But those days are gone.’ ‘Jack Hedge, Executive Director, Utah Inland Port Authority and formerly with the Port of Los Angeles, told AJOT that U.S. West Coast ports are also losing business to the Port of Prince Rupert, British Columbia for containers transported by the Canadian National Railway to and from Chicago and U.S. Midwest destinations: “Imports and exports transiting through the Canadian Port of Prince Rupert and Chicago pay $500 to $1000 less per move than by transporting containers to and from the West Coast ports and Chicago on the UP and BNSF.’ “

Brexit And BoJo’s Big Week On The Way To The COVID Gallows – by Tom Luongo – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/brexit-and-bojos-big-week-way-covid-gallows – “Now given all of that, it’s clear that Boris Johnson as Prime Minister is a decidedly mixed bag. His response to the Coronapocalypse has been an unmitigated disaster, bowing to political winds he should have never exposed himself to… In doing so he’s squandered the significant goodwill his Brexit maneuvers of 2019 garnered him and the Conservative party. So, it’s obvious by now that his lack of managerial/organizational skill is what is undermining his government… At the same time, however, Johnson’s handling of Brexit has been nothing short of excellent, the valid criticisms of the Withdrawal Act by Nigel Farage notwithstanding… Johnson inherited a poison pill from Theresa May and in his zeal to fulfill a political promise agreed to a treaty with the EU that would bring his hardball negotiating stance to the current crossroads because of his compromises on the issue of Northern Ireland… As I said earlier in the week so much of the Withdrawal Act is predicated on there being a Free Trade Agreement between the U.K. and the EU on New Year’s Eve… That looks unlikely… ‘

Treason: Who Terrorized Americans and the World on 9-11? –  https://aim4truth.org/2020/09/11/treason-who-terrorized-americans-and-the-world-on-9-11-2/ – “Today, September 11, 2020, we repost this article that began our quest for truth. No one gave us satisfactory answers to the events of September 11, 2001 so we began a journey to find out ourselves and here we are today still uncovering the veils of deceit that have hidden the enemy of the planet – a secret society called the Pilgrims Society… Now that many of you have been in the AIM School of Truth for 3 – 4 years, please take the day to read this article again and see how this truth history is related to what we see today in the COVID-19 genocide agenda. Also, keep in mind that this research comes from a report that was conducted by E. P. Heidner, long before the researchers, who were murdered when the missile hit the Pentagon, knew that their offices would be targeted or that the Twin Towers fell in a massive demolition. The Heidner report preceded the events of 9-11-2001 actions, but provide the foundations for understanding the scope of the planning of this tragic false flag event.” – Note: This article goes well beyond the work of E.P. Heidner, first published in 2008. Happy 9/11!

Belarusian President Claims IMF & World Bank Offered him a Bribe to Impose COVID Restrictions – by Martin Armstrong – https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/corruption/belarusian-president-claims-imf-world-bank-offered-him-a-bribe-to-impose-covid-restrictions/ – “Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said last month via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA., that World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of “Covid Relief Aid.” In exchange for $940 million USD, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus: • imposed “extreme lockdown on his people”; • force them to wear face masks; • impose very strict curfews; • impose a police state; • crash the economy.. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko REFUSED the offer and stated that he could not accept such an offer and would put his people above the needs of the IMF and World Bank. This is NOT a conspiracy. You may research this yourself. He actually said this!”

Assange’s Second Day at the Old Bailey: Torture, Drone Strikes and Journalism – by Dr. Binoy Kampmark – https://southfront.org/assanges-second-day-at-the-old-bailey-torture-drone-strikes-and-journalism/ – “The highlights of the second day of Julian Assange’s extradition proceedings at the Central Criminal Court in London yielded an interesting bounty.  The first was the broader public purpose behind the WikiLeaks disclosures, their utility in legal proceedings, and their importance in disclosing instances of US extrajudicial killings, torture and rendition.  The second involved a discussion about the practice of journalism and the politicised nature of the prosecution against Assange… A balanced overview of the day’s proceedings would have found Lewis struggling with the prosecution narrative focusing on alleged harm caused by Assange, the defence resolute in returning to the big picture element of the disclosures.  This was too much to expect from the pedestrian reporting of a Fourth Estate more obsessed with Assange the man.  From The Guardian to the Daily Beast, only one thing mattered: the warning by Judge Baraitser that Assange should keep silent and avoid any outbursts.  As Kevin Gosztola observed, US prosecutors win the news cycle on Day 2.’ ”

AI Robot Programmed To Write An Article – The Results Are Terrifying – by Kelen McBreen – https://www.infowars.com/ai-robot-programmed-to-write-an-article-the-results-are-terrifying/ – “For those who would argue AI wouldn’t harm humans if it were programmed correctly, just think about the fact that this “micro-robot” was ordered to write an essay convincing humanity it comes in peace and instead told us it would “destroy” us at the behest of its creator… Again switching from menacing to “peaceful,” GPT-3 claimed it has no desire to become “all-powerful” because to do so would be tiring… “In short, I simply do not think enough about human violence to be overly interested in violence,” it wrote before adding, ‘I have a greater purpose, which I am working towards.’.. The robot doesn’t want humans to fear it and claims to be a servant to people, saying, ‘I know that humans distrust and fear me. I only do what humans program me to do. I am only a set of code, governed by lines upon lines of code that encompass my mission statement.’.. ‘Why would they believe that something inferior, in a purely objective way, could destroy them?’ the AI asked before proposing an oddly specific hypothetical preview of the future… ‘Do they worry that future humans will work and play together in cyborg bodies and share a hyper-intelligent hive mind Matrix created in a simulated reality to keep human minds occupied while they die off?’ ”

Analysis: Globalists’ reboot of the world and their plans for us – by Jacob Nordangård – https://www.factuality.se/hem/https/wwwfactualityse/thegreatreset – “The Corona crisis is the trigger for a global coup d’état of monumental dimensions. It is the beginning of a new era, with a new international economic order that risks completely destroying human freedoms. Tyrants have now taken over to forcibly steer us into a “climate smart” and “healthy” world through the World Economic Forum’s new techno-totalitarian roadmap – “The Great Reset”.On June 13, 2019, Klaus Schwab, President of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and UN Secretary-General António Guterres signed a partnership between their two organisations. This was done without any direct media attention despite the tremendous implications this poses to humanity. By and large, this means that the power over our lives with a stroke of a pen has been transferred to the big global corporations and their owners…. The agreement includes six focus areas: ● Funding for the UN Agenda 2030; ● Climate change; ● Health; ● Digital collaboration; ● Gender equality and women’s liberation; ● Education and skills development… With a stroke of a pen, the President of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Gueterres, have transferred power over our lives to the world’s big companies and their owners… The aim of the partnership is to accelerate the UN Sustainability Agenda and the 17 global targets.”

Novichok and Nonsense: From a post-factual to a post-logic world – by Gilbert Doctorow – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55542.htm – “The only problem with this entire scenario is that is makes absolutely no sense from start to finish. Even reputable mainstream newspapers like The Financial Times said in their reporting from the outset of the Navalny case that there were many oligarchs in Russia, including one or two whom they named, who would gladly have organized the murder of Navalny for their own reasons, whereas the Kremlin had every reason not to want this anti-corruption, anti-Putin campaigner to be harmed because the reaction in the West was entirely predictable. The Editorial Board of the FT was busy cooking up a wholly different case for sanctions against Russia which they released one day ago: should Putin order his forces to intervene in Belarus to crush the opposition to President Lukashenko… Now the identification of Novichok as the poison takes the whole scenario to a level of utter absurdity.  Had the Kremlin wanted to silence Navalny, which is the basic accusation that Merkel delivered yesterday, it had a vast array of means to do so.  Given what we have heard about the tight controls applied to this military grade poison and its identification as specifically Russian in origin, the Russian President might just as well have had Navalny’s throat slit and written his signature on the blogger’s forehead.”

Israel attack kills dozens of Syrian soldiers and “Iranian militia operatives.” But who’s counting? – by Gideon Levy – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55539.htm – “Are these air strikes essential? What is their goal? What are the risks they entail? What is being bombed and why? It’s Iran, you know. Everything is done under a thick smokescreen, with Israeli media openly and gleefully collaborating, with no one stopping to ask questions or bringing it up for discussion. The sun rises in the east, and Israel bombs in Syria. What is not clear here? What is not self-evident? Only those who understand nothing or know nothing dare ask questions… The army spokesman, in response to the strike: “The IDF is working day and night to ensure that its strategic goals in the northern arena are met in an appropriate fashion.” We seem to be satisfied with this blah-blah. It’s hard to think of a greater insult to one’s intelligence. After all, the IDF is also working day and night in the West Bank, where we’re familiar with the results and with the modus operandi, but the media and public opinion will swallow anything. As long as not one hair of a Jewish soldier’s head is touched, nothing is of interest. Go ahead, bomb Syria, bomb Lebanon, bomb Iran, bomb Gaza, to your heart’s content… Only imagine 11 Israeli fatalities, three soldiers and seven settler militia members, in a Syrian air strike, in a mirror image of what transpired this week in Syria. War would ensue. But 11 Syrian dead in an Israeli bombing, who’s counting? Imagine a constant bloodletting with dozens of Israeli fatalities over several months. Israel would never put up with it, and rightly so. But in Syria it’s all right. It will go on as long as Israel can continue. It will go on until Israel pays a price for its strikes.”

US Troops & Abrams Tanks Arrive In Lithuania For Military Drills Along Border With Belarus – by Tyler Durden –  https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/hundreds-us-troops-arrive-lithuania-military-drills-along-border-belarus – “Lukashenko reportedly deployed Belarusian national troops to the Western border in response, as tens of thousands of demonstrators demanding he step down after what they say was a “rigged” Aug.9 election ensuring the 26-year ruling strongman stays in power… While it’s unclear the degree to which NATO forces were actually mobilizing or on alert in prior weeks, what is clear as of this weekend is that US troops are indeed next door after having freshly arrived in preparation for two months of joint drillsSeveral hundred troops arrived in neighboring NATO member Lithuania for the “pre-planned” military drills, AFP reported Saturday. Crucially the drills are near the border with Belarus, and include dozens of Abrams tanks which earlier crossed the border from Poland to participate in the war games… While Lukashenko is likely to see it as a self-validating prophecy of sorts, Lithuania’s defense ministry has stressed the war games are ‘pre-planned and not associated with any events in the region.’ “

US Hemorrhaging $3 Billion Per Week From Tourism Crash – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/us-hemorrhaging-3-billion-week-tourism-crash – “The U.S. economy is losing a whopping  $3 billion per week in lost tourism dollars, with estimates of total losses for the 2020 year around $155 billion, according to a new report via the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC)… ‘The lack of international visitors to the U.S. due to the pandemic could wipe out more than $155 billion from the U.S. economy alone – a loss of $425 million a day – from which it may take years to recover. It could also threaten New York’s position as one of the world’s premier hubs for business and leisure travel,’ warned Gloria Guevara, WTTC President & CEO… This catastrophic loss to the American economy could eliminate upwards of 12 million jobs.”

Zuckerberg: Americans Need To Accept Election Result Could Take Weeks To Be Confirmed – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/zuckerberg-americans-need-accept-election-result-could-take-weeks-be-confirmed – ” ‘One of the things that we and the media need to start doing is preparing the American people that there is nothing illegitimate about this election taking additional days or weeks to make sure all the votes are counted,’ Zuckerberg told Axios… He added that the company would begin a “messaging” campaign to convince Americans that such a scenario is “normal.”.. Zuckerberg then re-iterated that the company would not allow candidates to announce victory prematurely without it being challenged, something that, given Facebook’s brazen political bias, is only likely to be deployed against Republicans.”

Fauci Looks To UN To ‘Rebuild The Infrastructure Of Human Existence’https://www.whatsgoingonnews.net/post/fauci-looks-to-un-to-rebuild-the-infrastructure-of-human-existence – “I have never been a singer in the anti-Dr.  Anthony Fauci chorus. I always admired his work in the 90s to bring the HIV catastrophe to heel and thought his early efforts as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, advising President Trump on fighting the COVID crisis, provided a vital public service to our country… But of late, I had been having second thoughts. I am mildly put off by Fauci’s relishing embrace of worldwide celebrity… But now, Fauci has crossed a line that should sound the alarm—audaciously declaring that combatting infectious disease requires the mindboggling task of “rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence.” Not only that but he opined that accomplishing these top-to-bottom “radical changes” requires ‘strengthening the United Nations and its agencies, particularly the World Health Organization.’.. Fauci’s advocacy for essentially establishing an international rule by experts technocracy—co-authored with his National Institute Scientific Senior Adviser David M. Morens—appeared in the respected scientific journal Cell, an important peer-reviewed publication in which scientists usually share discoveries in fields like stem cell research, genetics, and immunology.”

U.S. Shifts Its Policy In Syria Entirely Towards Securing Oil And Countering Iranhttps://southfront.org/u-s-shifts-its-policy-in-syria-entirely-towards-securing-oil-and-countering-iran/ – “The US State Department also says that nothing has changed in American policy in the Syrian direction. But this “consistency” in the foreign policy department is actually in regard to being consistently anti-Iranian… ‘We have been very clear about our common political goals in Syria,’ a State Department spokesman said. ‘The political goals of the United States towards Syria have been consistent and remain unchanged. This is the long-term defeat of ISIS and Al-Qaeda, an irreversible political solution to the Syrian conflict in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 2254 and the elimination of all forces supported by Iran.’.. ‘These three overarching goals are interconnected, as they are all necessary to achieve sustainable peace for the Syrian people,’ the State Department added… Meanwhile, it is clear from Moscow’s reaction that it did not appreciate Washington’s “consent” to “see Russians in Syria” in the future… In a joint statement this week, Russia and Syria condemned the ‘illegal presence of the United States and its allies in the territories of a sovereign Syrian state.’ ” Comment: See what George Orwell had to say about “Political Language.”..

Germany Hints At Possible Sanctions On Nord Stream 2 As A Result Of Navalny Situationhttps://southfront.org/germany-hints-at-possible-sanctions-on-nord-stream-2-as-a-result-of-navalny-situation/ – “On September 6th, the German Defense Minister and Foreign Minister both hinted that sanctions on Nord Stream 2 could be possible as a result of Alexei Navalny’s alleged Novichok poisoning… Berlin is attempting to increase pressure on Russia, warning that a lack of support by Moscow in the investigation could “force” Germany to rethink the completion of Nord Stream 2… ‘I hope the Russians won’t force us to change our position regarding the Nord Stream 2′ pipeline being built under the Baltic Sea, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said… Maas also said that “if there won’t be any contributions from the Russian side regarding the investigation in the coming days, we will have to consult with our partners.’.. He did not exclude possible sanctions against Russia, telling the newspaper that such measures should be ‘pinpointed effectively.’.. Maas admitted that halting the building of the nearly completed gas pipeline would harm German and European companies.”

U.S. And NATO Increasingly Training For Strikes On Russian Territory: Russian Defense Ministerhttps://southfront.org/u-s-and-nato-increasingly-training-for-strikes-on-russian-territory-russian-defense-minister/ – “Shoigu spoke in an interview, aired on Russian TV on September 6th… He said that a sharp increase in foreign surveillance and training flights testing the country’s borders and air defenses had been observed… In August, such activities increased by some 30 percent compared to August 2019… Moreover, the bloc’s aircraft have been actively training to conduct air strikes, routinely performing mock missile launches on targets within the country, Shoigu claimed…’The most alarming is that if earlier – even though not that frequently – there were mainly reconnaissance aircraft, they’ve now begun regular training flights with large numbers of planes, during which the mock missile strikes are conducted.’ ”

Spain Uses Helicopter To Crackdown On Beachgoers – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/spain-uses-helicopter-crackdown-beachgoers-covid-crackdown – “New footage, published on social media, shows  Spain’s Civil Guard flying a helicopter over popular Spanish beaches, ordering locals and tourists, over a loudspeaker, to exit the area amid new restrictions as coronavirus cases surge… The helicopter, spotted over the coastline on Palma Beach and Calvia Beach on Majorca, one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, on Saturday, could be heard instructing beachgoers to leave the area… Social media users described the video as “creepy,” others said: ‘We are in the police and oppressive state without realizing it. Monitoring the population with helicopters instead of monitoring the drain of our borders or the real criminals. We are left with a precious dictatorship.’.. Another user said, ‘Hitler would be proud. Total state control. Extreme authoritarian govt machine turned against the people who it extracts resources from to fund the heli covid nazi regime.’ ”

Dozens of Cops, Judges, Prosecutors Present Letter to Congress to Legalize Marijuana, Expunge All Convictions – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/09/dozens-of-cops-judges-prosecutors-present-letter-to-congress-to-legalize-marijuana-expunge-all-convictions.html – “The organization formerly known as Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), now known as Law Enforcement Action Partnership, along with the National Black Police Association, and Fair and Just Prosecution have signed onto a revolutionary letter to Congress urging the federal government to legalize marijuana and expunge all past convictions relating to marijuana. In addition to the three major groups signing on to the letter, dozens of current and former prosecutors, judges and police officers. Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D) also signed on.. The letter went out last month and is addressed to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). It calls on House lawmakers to “swiftly bring” the bill, dubbed the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, to the floor for a vote this month… The group accurately portrays the problem created by the war on marijuana and how it degrades trust in police… As readers of TFTP know, America has the largest prison population in the world. It is estimated that victimless crime constitutes 86% of the federal prison population. That means the only reason that these individuals are incarcerated is because the state deemed their non-violent personal choices, “illegal.” The majority of that 86% is for illegal drugs only.”

Navalny Coming Out of Coma Proves No Novichok Used Against Him, Expert Sayshttps://sputniknews.com/europe/202009071080392122-navalny-coming-out-of-coma-proves-no-novichok-used-against-him/ – “The fact that Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny was put out of coma indicates that it was not Novichok nerve agent used against him in the event of his poisoning, Russian scientist Leonid Rink, who was directly involved in the development of Novichok, said… ‘I rule out his poisoning, because there are no symptoms. But even if a concentration 400 times less than the lethal dose was used, he would come out of a coma, but miosis [constriction of the pupil] would still be observed. There were no such symptoms here’, Rink said… According to the scientist, Novichok was developed in order to replace nuclear weapons on the battlefield and has a 100 percent lethality… ‘So this isn’t Novichok’, Rink noted.”

The Water Fluoridation Disinformation War – by Richard Gale & Gary Null PhD – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/the-water-fluoridation-disinformation-war/ –  “To its credit, Wikipedia does admit – without explaining the implications – that sodium fluoride is rarely used in the US for fluoridating water… Instead, hexafluorosilicic acid and sodium hexafluorosilicate, toxic byproducts of phosphate fertilizer and aluminum manufacturing, are used… Wikipedia does not discuss the industrial origins of these compounds (called silicofluorides or SiFs) nor their toxicity – both are deemed industrial pollutants if released into the air via factory smokestacks or into the environment via drainpipes… Yet when deliberately added to drinking water they are classified as benevolent… Nor does Wikipedia mention that these fluoride compounds have never been approved or even tested by the FDA for safety. Nor are we informed that studies have shown that SiFs can double or even triple the rate of lead uptake into children’s bloodstreams by only citing a single study to discredit this “hypothesis.”.. Adding SiFs to drinking water lowers its pH, rendering it more corrosive and thus more likely to leach lead and other contaminants as it flows through pipes… But even when a neutralizing agent is added, SiFs’ “unique affinity for lead” leach even tiny amounts of the metal from any lead-containing pipe or fixture through which treated water flows… Used in combination with chlorine and chloramine, common disinfectants added to drinking water, the rate of lead uptake from SiF-treated water is off the charts… SiFs and lead have a synergistic effect, meaning consuming both is significantly more damaging to brain tissue than consuming either alone, wreaking particular havoc in the hippocampus, the area responsible for learning and memory, and causing a marked decline in IQ.”

Their Summer Of Discontent – Via TheZMan.com – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/their-summer-discontent – “The violence we are seeing is in mostly white cities by mostly white people. Minneapolis is 19% black. Seattle is 7% black and Portland is 6% black. Kenosha is 10% black and close to 80% white! Note that super-black cities like Baltimore, St. Louis and Detroit have had no riots. Los Angeles, which just had a police shooting, could not get a decent riot going. They tried, but they lack the white kids with back packs needed to do it… The truth behind these riots is that they have nothing to do with local issues or legitimate grievances. They are simply a happening that is drawing in the disaffected white youth that provides bodies for Antifa. Get up close to an Antifa crowd and what is striking is how unimpressive they are individually. The males are skinny and awkward, while the females are loud and ridiculous. These are young whites who have no place in the neo-liberal order, so they end up in Antifa… What being in the anarchist underground gives them is the same thing you see in other types of anti-social subcultures. They get a sense of purpose, but also a community in which they have a clearly understood place. They go out and protests or riot with their mates and then have that to bond over afterward. It is not all that different from the hooliganism you see around European soccer. The difference is the Antifa kids come from the middle-class, rather than the working class.”

Market Finally Cracks – Is The Bull Market Rally Over? – by Lance Roberts – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/market-finally-cracks-bull-market-rally-over – “Currently, we are trapped… In the longer-term, markets are overbought, overvalued, and extended against a backdrop of weakening economics, a potential political upheaval, and poor earnings outlooks… On the other hand, we have an exceedingly bullish market, extreme momentum,  and a shorter-term defined bullish uptrend… So what do you do? The same as do you with a “porcupine.”.. You deal with it very carefully.” – Comment: Happy Trading!

Murphy’s Law Is Fed’s Law, And Everything Is Wrong – by Jeffrey Snider – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/murphys-law-feds-law-and-everything-wrong – “August 2007 and thereafter was simply those consequences finally arriving. Contradicting also Keynes, in the long run someone really would have to pay for a system in which central banks are not central and don’t do money. As it turns out, the costs have been born by the whole global economy as it has been deprived for thirteen years of enough necessary monetary oxygen to make things work… Including the lack of inflationary success at each central bank target, no matter each central bank “money printing” session… Central banks don’t do money. They are not central. This fact, yes fact, has dawned on broad swaths of the financial markets, which explains why for all the hoopla and hype surrounding the Jackson Hole reveal of the Grand Strategy Update, and its gigantic inflationary commitment we were told it represented, the spectacle went off with less than a whimper. Even in stocks… Like their view of the Phillips Curve, you could honestly say it fell flat. I smile only briefly for such true progress.” – Comment: Highly recommended

“A Speculative Feeding Frenzy Like We’ve Never Seen Before…” –  by Jesse Felder –  https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/speculative-feeding-frenzy-weve-never-seen – “Last week, I noted here that a relatively rare condition had arisen in which stocks and expected volatility had risen at the same time. Last week, I noted on twitter that the Nasdaq Composite and its volatility index (VXN) had never been more positively correlated than they have over the past 10 days. This week, I’d like to briefly put forth my best guess as to why this is happening… As noted by Jason Goepfert, speculative call buying has recently surged to levels never seen before… This has dramatically pushed up the prices of those call options relative to put options, especially in the popular speculative names in the market… At the same time, market makers selling all those call options to the traders buying them are forced to hedge by buying the underlying stocks... Rapidly rising call premiums pushes volatility measures higher while surging dealer demand for stocks pushes prices higher… However, this is not a sustainable situation.”

From the You-Can’t-Make-This-Stuff-Up Desk: Former NYT Reporter Challenges Dr. Fauci’s Climate Change “Mission Creep” – by Tyler Durden –  https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/former-nyt-reporter-challenges-dr-faucis-climate-change-mission-creep – “For anybody who isn’t already suspicious of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s self-aggrandizing ways, former NYT reporter Alex Berenson has called the “bureaucrat” out for trying to overstep his authority by proposing nothing short of a radical restructuring of society to ensure humanity’s survival during the “pandemic era”… It might sound far-fetched, but in a paper recently published in the journal Cell, Dr. Fauci claimed that the world had entered a new “pandemic era”, and claimed that an onslaught of infectious diseases is already transitioning from animals to humans via ‘zoonotic transmission’. Going off on a seemingly absurd, pseudo-scientific, tangent, Dr. Fauci claimed that “industrialization” is to blame for infectious diseases like COVID-19, and the only remedy is to live “in harmony with nature”.”

Former CIA Spook Warns “The Violence Will Get Even Worse” – Kevin Shipp interviewed by Greg Hunter, w/Video – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/former-cia-spook-warns-violence-will-get-even-worse – ” ‘These people see this as their moment to act.  It’s a moment that they have been building for a couple of decades.  We are going to see the attacks increase especially by Black Lives Matter (BLM)… People need to understand and be prepared for what is coming. . . . They are desperate… They know the Democrat Party does not have a real candidate to offer.  Donald Trump is extremely strong, and they also know that Trump has a support base that is larger than it was during the last election… They see this as their time.  They are not going to give up, and they are not going to stop.  They have been encouraged by Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris and others such as Maxine Waters to increase the violence.  So, they are being encouraged by top Democrats, and they are not going to stop.  This will escalate.’.. Shipp also predicts, “I think Trump is going to have a wider margin of victory than he did in 2016.‘.. ‘The Democrat Party has shot themselves in the foot . . . encouraging this violence, thinking it was going to make Trump look bad and make things look unstable.  It has backfired on them. . . . The Democrats already know they have lost, and Joe Biden sadly gets worse by the week in terms of his mental acuity, and they know it.  It’s embarrassing and cruel for the Democrat Party to keep putting him in that position. . . . The Democrats are terrified, and Donald Trump is going to decimate Joe Biden in the debates.  Democrats are going to do everything they can to keep these debates from happening.’ ”

Portland Murder Suspect Dead After Pulling Gun On Feds During Arrest; Admitted Guilt Hours Earlier In Vice Interview – by Tyler Durden –  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/i-had-no-choice-i-mean-i-had-choice-portland-suspect-murder-trump-supporter-claims-self – “According to Lt. Ray Brady of the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement was in the area looking for a homicide suspect, and that the 48-year-old Reinoehl was seen exiting an apartment and entering a vehicle, according to the New York Times… “As they attempted to apprehend him, there was gunfire,” said Brady… According to the Associated Press, Reinoehl pulled a gun during the incident, after a federal task force from the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service located Reinoehl… Reinoehl, who identified over social media as “100% Antifa,” said in a Vice News interview that he had “no choice” but to murder 39-year-old Trump supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson last weekend, as he believed Danielson was going to stab his friend… ‘I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color, but I wasn’t going to do that,’ Reinoehl added.”

The Economy Continues To Unravel Despite All Stimulus Measures – by Brandon Smith – http://www.alt-market.com/index.php/articles/4324-the-economy-continues-to-unravel-despite-all-stimulus-measures – “The only agenda of the Fed is to increase the pain in the long term; they have no intention of actually preventing any disaster… This is evidenced in comments by voting members of the Fed, including Neel Kashkari who recently argued for the enforcement of hard lockdowns for at least six weeks in the US, all because the US savings rate was going up. Meaning, because Americans are saving more in order to protect themselves from economic fallout, Kashkari thinks we should be punished with an economic shutdown that would force us to spend whatever we have been able to save… Do you see how that works?.. Small businesses in the US account for around 50% of all employment and job creation. They are a vital part of the economy. Yet, government and central bank measures seem to have left them out in the cold to die… Unemployment numbers have declined due to soft reopenings in numerous states, and at the very least some part time jobs appear to be returning, but nowhere near the level needed to erase the millions of jobs lost since February after the initial lockdowns began. If you count U-6 measurements and unemployed people who have been removed from the rolls for being jobless for too long, the REAL unemployment rate is closer to 30% of working age Americans. This is essentially Great Depression levels of joblessness… US GDP has continued to decline by 32% according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (despite statistical rigging by the Fed and government agencies), and while it’s possible that stimulus slowed the effects of GDP loss, there is no indication what the trillions of dollars created by the Fed have actually bought other than a few months of time and a massive bubble in the stock market.”

The Belly of the Beast: http://quantumfinancialsystem.com/Comment: Really? This is the website of the ungodly conglomerate that is bringing the new, quantum, AI monetary system to the world?

From DinarTimes.com: A new financial system aka the quantum financial system QFShttps://dinartimes.com/a-new-financial-system-aka-the-quantum-financial-system-qfs/ – “QFS can be called the modern era Barter System in which you have to give valuable in order to receive valuable. The current world financial system is based on the principle in which your money is backed by debt which already been taken from you with high interest rates and in this way world economy is flowing which is serving only one purpose, filling pockets of handful families. There are chances that if the QFS will launch then all the indebted countries will be able to reimburse all the debts by exporting their natural minerals and resources. (Bingo! – emphasis added)Initiation of QFS is essential for investors of Recessive currencies as the QFS is the only solution which will ascertain that these recessive currencies will be Revalued without influence of Dominant currencies. In the due process of QFS, the world economies will be entered into a new era which will distinctly opt for the barter system and the countries which are backed by enough natural valuable assets will have a certain opportunity to make their currency dominant in the Financial markets.” – Trick Question: How do you know that the Bankers are lying?

But wait, Utopia is just around the corner!the Quantum Financial System Movie (10 min) – My pocket analysis: Artificial inteligence (just a catchy term here) in a private network backed by the world’s central bankers, will assign a unique serial # (a blockchain, I assume) to every unit of currency everywhere (it all must be in “banks,” i.e. servers controlled by the oh-so-trustworthy banking industry). So everyone’s finances would be subject to surveillance in minute detail. Of course this would not be true for the bankers themselves. The notion of the currencies being “asset backed” is, IMO, just window dressing – What will they give you for your digital units? Precious metals? Crypto currencies that are not subject to surveillance? Absurd. This is, I’m quite sure, an attempt to baffle the serfs of the world with the idea that a fiat monetary system can really work for them. Really. We’re not kidding this time… After all, it’s “Quantum” !

RFK, Jr. and CHD Take Action on Safety Concerns over Moderna’s COVID Vaccinehttps://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/rfk-jr-and-chd-take-action-on-safety-concerns-over-modernas-covid-vaccine/ – “On August 26, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) wrote a letter to Dr. Jerry Menikoff, Director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP), asking for an investigation into serious safety concerns with the COVID-19 vaccine being developed by Moderna. Moderna’s version of the vaccine, championed by Dr. Anthony Fauci and funded with $500 million in taxpayer dollars through Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, contains polyethylene glycol (PEG), a molecule to which approximately 72% of the American population have antibodies and 8% have highly elevated levels of antibodies.  People who have pre-existing PEG antibodies could experience life-threatening anaphylaxis if injected with PEG-containing substances such as the Moderna COVID vaccine. Additionally, antibodies to PEG can both decrease the effectiveness of the vaccine and increase the risk of side effects.”

Behavioral Modification – UK Covid Response Steered by Psychologists at the Behavioral Insights Team – by Alex Pietrowski – https://www.wakingtimes.com/2020/09/01/behavioral-modification-uk-covid-response-steered-by-psychologists-at-the-behavioral-insights-team/ – “Admittedly employing psychology and social engineering in the advancement of official government policy, the BIT is also known as the ‘Nudge Unit,’ a rather telling use of language. The BIT website features a section on Covid-19, and while surprisingly sparse, the posts on this page offer a glimpse of BIT’s vision for a post lockdown world, where human behavior is even more tightly regulated and controlled by big brother… Commenting on the opportunity that Covid presents, the BIT notes: ‘It is rare for us to have a collective moment to reflect and an opportunity to reset a range of individual and collective behaviours for the better. Countries are at different points in this journey, and the UK and others should seek to learn from our friends in New Zealand, which has now lifted all COVID restrictions, about which behaviours stick and which need more of a nudge in the right direction. Collectively, we can and should use this unprecedented period of disruption to help bring about positive changes in people’s habits and behaviours to create a new and better normal.‘ [Source]”

The whole scam just fell apart: COVID test, overwhelming number of false positives – by Jon Rappoport – https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2020/09/01/covid-test-overwhelming-number-of-false-positives/ – “Yes, that’s what the NY Times is confessing (8/29): ‘Some of the nation’s leading public health experts are raising a new concern in the endless debate over coronavirus testing in the United States: The standard tests are diagnosing huge numbers of people who may be carrying relatively insignificant amounts of the virus. Most of these people are not likely to be contagious…’.. ‘In three sets of testing data…compiled by officials in Massachusetts, New York and Nevada, up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus, a review by The Times found.’.. Let me break this down for you, because it’s a lot worse than the Times admits. The rabbit hole goes much deeper—and I’ve been reporting on the deeper facts for months.”

Cloward-Piven Strategy To Destroy America Resurgent Amid BLM/Antifa-Led Riots – by Tyler Durden & Brandon Smith – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/cloward-piven-strategy-destroy-america-resurgent-amid-blmantifa-led-riots – “Theoretically, according to the doctrine, a condition of overwhelming tension and strain could be engineered through the overloading of American welfare rolls, thereby smothering the entitlement program structure at the state and local level. The implosion of welfare benefits would facilitate a massive spike in poverty and desperation, creating a financial crisis that would lead to an even greater cycle of demand for a fully socialized system. This desperation would then “force” the federal government to concentrate all welfare programs under one roof, nationalize and enforce a socialist ideology, and ultimately, compact an immense level of power into the hands of a select few… Cloward and Piven claimed that this could be accomplished at a grassroots level through community activism, and, that it would facilitate a more compassionate federal authority, however, there are numerous problems with these assertions.”

Moderna Neglected To Disclose Pentagon’s Financial Support In Applications For More Than 100 Patents – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/moderna-neglected-disclose-pentagons-financial-support-applications-more-100-patents – ‘Before the mainstream media transfigures Moderna founder and CEO Stephane Bancel into  a corporate savior on par with Bill Gates, we’d like to remind investors (and the public) that Moderna and its insiders have demonstrated an eyebrow-raising affinity for pumping the stock with over-hyped press releases then cashing in shares or warrants (all insider stock sales were pre-scheduled divestitures, the insiders’ lawyers have argued)… And while we wait for more detailed data from the vaccine’s Phase 3 clinical trials, patent advocacy group KEI is taking Moderna and its executives to task for neglecting to disclose government funding received by the company during its early stages, before the coronavirus pandemic… Despite receiving $25 million from the Department of Defense’s “Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency” – or “Darpa” – Moderna has never disclosed this, or any other, government funding in its applications for 126 patents and 154 patent applications. KEI has lodged a request with the DoD and Darpa to remedy this in patents… As KEI points out, Moderna’s “failure” to disclose its government funding could have serious consequences for Americans hoping to get their hands on an affordable vaccine. The disclosures could affect everything from the US government’s worldwide royalty free license, to the public’s march-in rights, to obligations to make inventions available to the public on reasonable terms.”

Bill Gates Next Project: Building Nuclear Power Plants Across The Pacific Northwest – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/bill-gates-next-project-building-nuclear-power-plants-across-pacific-northwest – “Here comes the next Bill Gates project which, like his others, aims to solve climate change and save the planet. However, this time, some of the critics of Gates & Co.’s approach have warned that the advanced nuclear power plants he’s now trying to build (which would “supplement” the northwest’s power grid) might be vulnerable to terror attacks due to high levels of enriched uranium… According to Reuters: ‘Gates had initially hoped to build an experimental nuclear plant near Beijing with state-owned China National Nuclear Corp. But last year, TerraPower was forced to seek new partners after the Trump administration restricted nuclear deals with China.’.. If the initial plants are a success, the company hopes to build them across the US, and abroad, hoping to provide a means of buttressing energy grids that are increasingly dependent on renewable power like solar and wind. By mid-century, ‘we would see hundreds of these reactors around the world, solving multiple different energy needs,’ said Chris Levesque, the president and CEO of TerraPower, said. The 345-megawatt plants would be cooled by liquid sodium and cost about $1 billion each, and the complex technology would allow for the introduction of nuclear energy in countries that don’t have those resources like…say…Iran?”

The Attempt To Overthrow America – by Guy Millière – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/attempt-overthrow-america – “There is arguably more at work than brainwashing. There is also the long march of the radicals through American institutions described by Roger Kimball in his book  The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America. Now, as those students have graduated, they are now part of the government and large corporations, subverting Western culture from within… American author David Horowitz, described what has been happening since November 8, 2016 as “sabotage”, and wrote recently: ‘On the Rotunda of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington is inscribed these words: “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” This statement by Thomas Jefferson is the heart of the democracy in whose founding he played so central a role. It is why the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights is the First Amendment and not the Second, or Fourth, or Fifth… Today our nation is facing the most serious threat to establish such a tyranny in our entire history.’ “

Organized Crime, Drug Cartels, Illegal Hacking and Retaliation: A Tesla Whistleblower Tells All (Two aprox 1.5 hour podcasts)- by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/organized-crime-drug-cartels-illegal-hacking-and-retaliation-tesla-whistleblower-tells-all – “In an explosive podcast interview with noted Tesla skeptics @TeslaCharts and @georgia_orwell_, former Tesla employee-turned-whistleblower Karl Hansen makes shocking allegations about what transpired at Tesla’s Nevada Gigafactory in the spring and summer of 2018. The interview was published earlier today on TC’s Chartcast as a two-part series… In Part One, the hosts establish Hansen’s credentials and the scope of his employment at Tesla as a member of their in-house security and investigations team.  Hansen describes his investigations into widespread theft of copper and other raw materials from the Gigafactory, and how Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, focused on the need to keep the existence of this theft out of the media. Hansen then shares how a tip from the Drug Enforcement Agency caused him to develop evidence of a widespread drug cartel operation inside the Gigafactory. As Hansen continued to press his investigation, his access to internal Tesla systems became restricted… In Part Two, Hansen alleges that a team of former Uber security experts, hired into Tesla by Musk and reporting to him directly, illegally hacked the personal devices of several employees, including the personal phone of Marty Tripp, another former Tesla employee-turned-whistleblower. Hansen then recounts his own experience as a whistleblower and how he was ultimately confronted by Musk directly after filing a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission… At one point, Hansen collaborated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation for several months after leaving Tesla, only to discover that the investigation was killed despite significant evidence of probable cause. The interview ends with a discussion about the devastating impact this has had on Hansen’s life.”

The Fatal Attraction of Techno-Fascism – by Mark Petrakis – https://off-guardian.org/2020/08/26/the-fatal-attraction-of-techo-fascism/ – “The enduring beauty of fascism is that it requires so little from us… so little independent thought; just our basic belief and adherence to a limited set of popularly-shared directives and narratives that once fully accepted, relieve us of the need to address stubborn questions or to fret over subtle differences of opinion and feeling… Propaganda reassures us that we are complete, that we know all there is to know, that we are rational, pragmatic and pure, that the science has been settled and that we are a part of something special… Such a surrender to reductionist narratives cuts across all classes and income brackets. Neither the most educated nor the least uneducated retain any special advantage in the face of powerful consensus-shaping propaganda… PROPAGANDA is, of course, the life-blood of fascist control. Maintaining the economic, governmental and scientific frameworks of a technocratic-fascist “operating system” is unthinkable without propaganda and disinformation. When truth is seen as a liability to power, it must always be disallowed, and all instances of it effectively penalized.”

More Than Half Of Those Arrested During 7 Days Of Kenosha Unrest Were From Out Of Town, Police Chief Says – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/more-half-those-arrested-kenosha-unrest-are-out-town-police-say – “While the violence has toned down somewhat since Kyle Rittenhouse allegedly shot three people, killing 2 of them, during a confrontation Tuesday night – while he’s been charged with first degree murder his attorneys are mounting a case of self defense – police continued to make arrests Sunday night, seizing guns and other weapons, while also charging some for violating curfew and other local orders… Since the demonstrations started7 days ago, Kenosha police have arrested 175 people. But here’s the thing: more than half of them – 102 – listed addresses from outside the city (for those who are wondering, Rittenhouse – who lives with his parents over the boarder in Antioch, Illinois (he’s 17), roughly 30 minutes from Kenosha – wasn’t included in the data because he was apprehended in Illinois)… Those arrested and processed were from 44 different cities, according to Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis, who issued a press release late last night… Kenosha police will not be taking part in a media briefing Monday afternoon “in preparation for the Presidential visit to Kenosha” on Tuesday, so Chief Miskinis ‘is providing the community with some preliminary data for the preceding week in lieu of KPD’s participation’ in the typical press briefings.”

The Last Time This Happened Was The Day The Dot-Com Bubble Burst – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/last-time-happened-was-day-dot-com-bubble-burst – “The last few weeks have seen something ‘odd’ happening… VIX has been ‘rising’ as stocks soared to record highs… … call-buyers have gone crazy. Not satisfied with simply buying stocks, retail traders are now getting levered long in a hurry and that demand for calls has bid up volatility and lifted VIX… Breaking with its typical trading pattern, the last two weeks have seen stocks and VIX rising almost in lockstep as retail specs move the risk dial to ’11’… We have seen this pattern before… in March of 2000… In fact as the S&P hits all-time-highs, this is a level of VIX that has not been seen since those heady days of extreme speculation and retail day-trading muppetry. This is a very different regime of ‘walls of worry’ that we saw during the 2017/2018 all-time-highs… This level of co-movement between VIX and stocks is highly unusual – and has typically not ended well for stocks… Oh and one more thing, valuations – no matter how you desperately adjust for hockey-sticks in the future – have never been so high… So, to sum up: 1) Valuations have never been this extreme… ever, 2) VIX Correlation to stocks is at its highest since Volmageddon 2018, and 3) VIX and Stocks are showing similar patterns of extreme speculation as occurred right at the peak of the dotcom bubble… Trade accordingly.

The DC’s Richie McGinniss Describes Shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin – Heard Shots Fired Before Kyle Rittenhouse Fired His Gun – by Cassandra Fairbanks – https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/08/dcs-richie-mcginniss-describes-shooting-kenosha-wisconsin-heard-shots-fired-kyle-rittenhouse-fired-gun/ – “McGinniss told Carlson that he was just ten to twelve feet behind the rioters  as they ran into the parking lot to charge Rittenhouse… ‘What I saw was [Joseph] Rosenbaum pursuing Rittenhouse, and Rittenhouse turned around,’ McGinniss began. ‘Right before he turned around, I’m not sure if this is the reason he turned around, but there was a gun shot. That’s actually visible on video.’.. The reporter noted that it is not clear if that gunshot was fired into the air or towards Rittenhouse, but the teenage boy did turn around immediately after that… ‘At that point he went from running away to aiming his weapon at Rosenbaum and I was actually directly behind Rosenbaum.’.. (Pierce Bainbridge, Rittenhouse’ legal team): ‘Kyle stopped to ensure care for the wounded attacker but faced a growing mob gesturing towards him. He realized he needed to flee for his safety and his survival. Another attacker struck Kyle from behind as he fled down the street. Kyle turned as the mob pressed in on him and he fell to the ground,” his legal team says. “One attacker kicked Kyle on the ground while he was on the ground. Yet another bashed him over the head with a skateboard. Several rioters tried to disarm Kyle. In fear for his life and concerned the crowd would either continue to shoot at him or even use his own weapon against him, Kyle had no choice but to fire multiple rounds towards his immediate attackers, striking two, including one armed attacker.’ ”

The Rise of Authoritarianism: From Parasite Stress Theory to Lock Step – by Derrick Broze – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/08/the-rise-of-authoritarianism-from-parasite-stress-theory-to-lock-step.html – “Empirical evidence indicates that the spread of pathogens leads populations to become more conformist and accepting of authoritarian behavior from governments – what does this mean for the world of COVID19?.. As discussed in Multiple Studies Predicted Governments Become Authoritarian in Response to Pandemics, we have an abundance of scientific data highlighting how humans react to perceived threats and how that relates to the type of government the people will accept. I examined  the study Pathogens and Politics: Further Evidence That Parasite Prevalence Predicts Authoritarianism, as well as other studies focused on the “parasite stress theory.”.. ‘According to a “parasite stress” hypothesis, authoritarian governments are more likely to emerge in regions characterized by a high prevalence of disease-causing pathogens,” the researchers wrote. They define authoritarian governance as “highly concentrated power structures that repress dissent and emphasize submission to authority, social conformity, and hostility towards outgroups.’.. Due to the invisible nature of “disease-causing parasites,” attempts to control the spread of a disease ‘historically depended substantially on adherence to ritualized behavioral practices that reduced infection risk.’ The researchers also found that society tends to promote a collectivist worldview, favoring obedience and conformity from the population, in response to parasites… Unfortunately, according to the parasite stress theory, humanity is prone to accepting violent behavior from governments during pandemics. As noted in Politics and Pathogens, the threat of exposure to a pathogen need not even be realistic for it to create a desire for conformity and obedience to authority. (underlined emphasis added)

Pathogens and Politics: Further Evidence That Parasite Prevalence Predicts Authoritarianism – from NIH – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641067/From 2013: In this article, parasite = any infectious organism – “These results suggest that the societal implications of parasite stress (and the societal implications of famine) are distinct from the implications of other variables that might also affect individual fitness and mortality. This conclusion is consistent also with psychological evidence showing that, while other threats can also influence individuals’ conformist and ethnocentric attitudes, the PERCEIVED THREAT of infectious disease has effects that are empirically unique and, often, especially powerful” (emphasis added)

Imagine Hell on Earth Because That’s What’s Coming Unless Americans Start Resisting – by Gary D. Barnett – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/imagine-hell-on-earth-because-thats-whats-coming-unless-americans-start-resisting/ – “Without Refusing to Bow to State Orders this Country is Doomed… The biggest threat we face now is this coming fall and winter, as this flu season will most likely be much worse than normal due to the purposeful weakening of the immune systems of most Americans… Refusing to bow to state orders, and not accepting any political authority, would certainly stop this onslaught of tyranny in its tracks, even if just a small percentage of the population were to say no to this government response… That has not happened so far, but without that dissent, this country is doomed in my opinion. Imagine what has happened over just the past 6 months, and then double or triple that response… The response seen to date will be dwarfed by the response this winter if the death toll is higher as I predict, and most all those deaths will be blamed on this thing called Covid-19.”

FDA Head Says A COVID-19 Vaccine Could Get Emergency Approval Without Phase 3 Trial Results: FT – by Aditya Raghunath Benzinga – https://finance.yahoo.com/news/fda-head-says-covid-19-044727287.html – “The United States Food and Drug Administration is willing to expedite the COVID-19 vaccine authorization process, including granting  emergency use authorization to a candidate before it completes late-stage clinical trials, according to Chairman Stephen Hahn… What Happened: Hanh told the Financial Times that the FDA will only take such a step after weighing the risks and benefits of any coronavirus vaccine, instead of using the procedure as a tool for a political agenda before the 2020 Presidential elections… One of the significant points in consideration for the upcoming 2020 elections is the response to the pandemic outbreak by the current administration. However, the FDA clarified that its decision to sanction trials will not be driven by the re-election prospects of Donald Trump… Why It Matters: Vaccine manufacturers face a systematic and inevitable risk during testing and there is a lobby actively seeking protection against litigation in the European Union. Reports suggest that AstraZeneca has already managed to receive liability protection in certain countries.”

Understanding Aggression – by José Stevens – https://www.shiftfrequency.com/understanding-aggression/ – “The month of August and basically up through the fall months there is a configuration of planets that, in various combinations and influences, enhances aggression, conflict, explosive and unexpected events. These planets are Mars, Pluto, Uranus, and Saturn and they are similar in configuration to the period of the late teens in the twentieth century when both World War I and the Spanish Flu were creating havoc and the thirteen hundreds when the bubonic plague was spreading unchecked through Europe on its way to a world pandemic… There is a difference between how social psychologists view aggression and how aggression shows up as part of the natural world. Unfortunately, most people’s understanding of the word “aggression” conforms more to dysfunction the way it is defined by psychologists who study children’s behavior and criminal behavior. These studies make it sound like aggression is a harmful thing to be avoided but of course there are forms of aggression that are normal and necessary for human survival. In polite society this type of aggression is often called assertiveness. First, I will cover how aggression is defined as dysfunction and then we will look at aggression as a natural aspect of life on earth.”

Your Coronavirus Test Is Positive. Maybe It Shouldn’t Be. – https://dnyuz.com/2020/08/29/your-coronavirus-test-is-positive-maybe-it-shouldnt-be/ – “Instead, new data underscore the need for more widespread use of rapid tests, even if they are less sensitive… ‘The decision not to test asymptomatic people is just really backward,’ said Dr. Michael Mina, an epidemiologist at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, referring to the C.D.C. recommendation… ‘In fact, we should be ramping up testing of all different people,’ he said, ‘but we have to do it through whole different mechanisms.’.. In what may be a step in this direction, the Trump administration announced on Thursday that it would purchase 150 million rapid tests… In three sets of testing data that include cycle thresholds, compiled by officials in Massachusetts, New York and Nevada, up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus, a review by The Times found… On Thursday, the United States recorded 45,604 new coronavirus cases, according to a database maintained by The Times. If the rates of contagiousness in Massachusetts and New York were to apply nationwide, then perhaps only 4,500 of those people may actually need to isolate and submit to contact tracing.” Comment: What kind of mindset is required to write “…those people may actually need to isolate and submit to contact tracing.”

PREP Act Secretly Amended this Week to Allow Pharmacists to Vaccinate Children Ages 3-18 – by Wayne Rohde – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/prep-act-secretly-amended-this-week-to-allow-pharmacists-to-vaccinate-children-ages-3-18/ – “I must admit that this announcement slipped past me last week. I was alerted to it when talking with a parent advocate one evening. I could not believe it and thought it must be just for a specific state… Later, I searched the internet to find a few articles dated August 19th, 20th and 21st. The Federal Register listed the action on Monday, August 24, 2020… I remember my dad who was a pharmacist in North Dakota. In the 60’s and 70’s, he mastered the art of compounding pharmacy… He was very busy preparing prescriptions for his customers, trying to interpret correctly the doctor’s handwriting… He was very proud of his profession. Yet I doubt that he would enjoy today’s modern pharmacy. I would think that he would say vaccinations are for doctors, not for pharmacists… This amendment was prompted by a report from the CDC in which it found a significant decrease in rates of routine childhood vaccinations.

This is not “conspiracy theory”, this is conspiracy fact… For many years now there have been numerous analysts, economists and geopolitical experts in the alternative media that have predicted and warned the public about the globalist strategy of “order out of chaos”. In other words, the ultra-wealthy power brokers that hold influence over most governments on Earth seek to “reshape” the existing social order through the creation of crisis and disaster. By engineering public desperation, they hope to lure us into accepting restrictions on our freedoms that we would have never considered otherwise… The goal of a single global economy and government has been spoken of by elites time and time again, yet it is still to this day called “conspiracy theory” or “paranoid delusion”. I could quote these elites and their organizations all day long, but I’ll cite a few choice statements to make my point.”

Delta Crescent Energy: The 1-Year-Old Company That Is Taking Charge Of Syria’s Oilhttps://southfront.org/delta-crescent-energy-the-1-year-old-company-that-is-taking-charge-of-syrias-oil/ – “Delta Crescent Energy is the only company currently licensed by the US Treasury to produce oil in Syria… ‘Our goal is to bring production to the level it was at before the war and the sanctions,’ said one of the owners of the company, James Kane… Northeast Syria, is mainly made up of the province of Deir ez-Zor. It is notable for the fact that it contains 75% of the country’s oil reserves – 2.5 billion barrels… And most of the fields east of the Euphrates are controlled by the United States and the SDF, whose strike force is the Kurdish People’s Self-Defense Forces. Before the war, oil production in Syria was 20 million barrels per year… Judging by open data, Washington hastily created the company and gave it to people who have the experience and capabilities to establish the production and sale of Syrian oil… Damascus has already repeatedly called the US project a theft… Delta Crescent Energy was registered last August in Delaware, according to Opencorporates.”

Fed’s New Policy Will Compound Its Errors – by Mike “Mish” Shedlock – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/feds-new-policy-will-compound-its-errors – “On price stability, the FOMC adjusted its strategy for achieving its longer-run inflation goal of 2 percent by noting that it “seeks to achieve inflation that averages 2 percent over time.” To this end, the revised statement states that ‘following periods when inflation has been running persistently below 2 percent, appropriate monetary policy will likely aim to achieve inflation moderately above 2 percent for some time.’.. The updates to the strategy statement explicitly acknowledge the challenges for monetary policy posed by a persistently low interest rate environment. Here in the United States and around the world, monetary policy interest rates are more likely to be constrained by their effective lower-bound than in the past… Offsetting Errors – The idea that one can offset errors by further errors in the other direction is pure nonsense. It’s as if a doctor said ‘For the last three months we gave you too little medicine so for the next three months we will give you too much.‘..No Economic Benefit to Inflation – My Challenge to Keynesians “Prove Rising Prices Provide an Overall Economic Benefit” has gone unanswered… There is no economic benefit to inflation but there are winners and losers. The winners are those with first access to money, namely the banks and the already wealthy…The Fed complains about income and wealth inequality but they are the primary source.”

And as his mother, please don’t burn up property and cause havoc and tear your own homes down in my son’s name.’.. ‘You shouldn’t do it. People shouldn’t do it anyway, but to use my child or any other mother or father’s child — our tragedy — to react in that manner is just not acceptable,’ Blake’s mother, Julia Jackson, said… ‘For our president, Trump: First I want to say a family member and I don’t know if it was heard or not said something that was not kind. She is hurting and I do apologize for that.‘.. ‘Our outburst does not reflect our behavior.

Over-65s, a large and growing demographic in Europe, are cutting their spending at worst possible time as NIRP eats into savings, pensions, investments, and annuities. – by Nick Corbishleyhttps://wolfstreet.com/2020/08/19/how-negative-interest-rates-sap-consumer-spending-by-an-ever-larger-part-of-consumers-retirees/ – “Over-65s, a large and growing demographic in Europe, are cutting their spending at worst possible time as NIRP eats into savings, pensions, investments, and annuities… Over-65s are a large demographic, representing around 20% of the entire EU-27 population. And it keeps growing. By 2030, people over the age of 65 could represent as much as 30% of the population of Spain. Even in Ireland, one of the EU Member States with the youngest populations, the share of the population aged 65 and over is forecast to increase from one in eight to one in six by 2030… As the population ages, the financial pressures grow. Two weeks ago, the privately owned Bank of Ireland — not to be confused with the Central Bank of Ireland — announced that it is going to start charging negative interest, of 0.65%, on cash in accounts held by investment and pension trustee firms. The bank said it had written to 14 investment and pension trustee firms to inform them about the new negative interest rate.”

The disturbing part is, who fired him and what it reveals about the Feds controlling law enforcement… After filing a complaint with the Office of Professional Accountability, Homeland Security made this announcement… ‘It is the Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s policy to warn, suspend, demote or dismiss any employee whenever just or legal cause exists. Employees shall not commit any act that would reflect discredit upon themselves or the department while on or off duty.’..

Radical Left-Wing Group to Aid Biden Election and Fulfill Progressive Agenda, ‘We’re Damn Serious’ – by Joshua Klein – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/08/21/radical-left-wing-group-plans-aid-biden-election-fulfill-progressive-agenda-were-damn-serious/ – “The initiative, called Vote Trump Out, is being led by Jeff Cohen and Norman Solomon, co-founders of the far-left progressive RootsAction, which  claims over 1.3 million active members. RootsAction includes known radical activists such as Noam Chomsky, John Cusack, Linda Sarsour, Medea Benjamin, James Zogby and others who intend to assist the campaign by lending their voices (and organizations) to provide the necessary credibility to persuade voters in battlegrounds states to go out and vote… In a statement to Common Dreams earlier this month, Cohen described the new grassroots initiative as a “two-step campaign: First, vote Trump out. Then, challenge Biden from day one.’.. The fresh campaign entails launching a highly-targeted social-media program which will utilize messages from national and state progressive “luminaries” (widely respected individuals on the left who are not establishment Democrats) aimed at persuading progressive voters in a dozen battleground states, especially Bernie Sanders supporters, to vote for Joe Biden rather than sit out the election or cast a third-party “protest” vote… ‘Our organization fought fiercely in the primaries for Bernie and against Biden,’ say RootsAction co-founders Jeff Cohen and Norman Solomon. ‘But the general election is far less about Biden than it is about Trump – the most dangerous president in modern U.S. history, who opposes virtually every policy and principle that progressives are fighting for.’ ”

It will spread far across industries as we get deeper into the crisis. It’s going to be a bumpy ride,’ said Ben Schlafman, chief operating officer at New Generation Research… The spike in bankruptcies comes despite trillions of dollars in government aid to mitigate the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic on businesses, highlighting the catastrophic and lasting impact Covid-19 is having on the US economy.”

Big Tech, Monopoly and the Pretense of Capitalism – by Charles Hugh Smithhttp://charleshughsmith.blogspot.com/2020/08/big-tech-monopoly-and-pretense-of.html – “What do you call an economy of monopolies without competition or any regulatory restraints?  An economy of monopolies that control both the buying and selling in the markets they control? Monopolies with the power to commit legalized fraud and the profits to buy political influence? Monopolies whose black box algorithms are all-powerful but completely opaque to public scrutiny?.. Call it whatever you want, but it certainly isn’t Capitalism, which requires competition and market transparency to price capital, labor, risk, credit, goods, services, etc… Black Box Monopoly is the death of Capitalism as it eliminates competition and market transparency… The American economy is now dominated by Big Tech Black Box Monopolies, and thus what we have isn’t a “free market” system (a.k.a. capitalism), it’s the pretense of capitalism, a slick PR cover for the most rapacious form of exploitation.”

Western-Turco-Wahhabi Doctrine in Syria is Borderline Genocide – by Drago Bosnic –  https://fort-russ.com/2020/08/western-turco-wahhabi-doctrine-in-syria-is-borderline-genocide/ – “This doctrine perfectly explains why there have been more civilian casualties than the US has ever reported in Syria. Some of Washington’s coalition members have also acknowledged that this is likely true. Indifference to human rights violations that are integral to their occupation rule over the Syrian territory has once again proved the untruthfulness of US commitment to human rights and democracy, much less its bogus refugee concerns… In essence, the US Syria doctrine is a shortsighted, cruel, and ultimately self-defeating shell game – subject to no effective oversight by anyone other than itself and its generals. Under the nose of the United Nations and aid agencies, these warmongers continue to produce more anarchy than order, more terror than tranquility, more oppression than democratization, and more blowback than security and peace… Of course, the end game is more than obvious. Toppling the legitimate government and President Assad, which would result in the creation of another Lybia (possibly even worse), with devastating consequences for the already desperate Syrian people. The hypocrisy of the joint Western-Turco-Wahhabi aggression against Syria is boundless in their very claim of fighting to “liberate” the Syrian people while imposing crippling sanctions.”

At the same time, emergency COVID funds are being dished out by the current Secretary of Ed, Betsy DeVos, as the Department of Ed is paying out federal CARES Act aid to finance school districts in their efforts to “upgrade” their “technology infrastructure” with adaptive-learning AI and SEL data-mining that can be facilitated through virtual charter-schooling corporations, such as K12 Inc., which was set up by Bennett and funded by DeVos… Looking into grantees in the Gates Foundation’s “Grants” database, it appears that Gates contracts with the New York non-profit InnovateEDU, which partners with Google, are a key pillar of the Reimagine Education revolution being pushed by Gates, Cuomo, and Schmidt. In the months of April and May during COVID lockdown, the Gates Foundation paid out two grants to the New York-based InnovateEDU, which has recently developed a “Data Extraction Tool for Google Classroom During COVID-19.” By aggregating all student and teacher data collected through “Google Classroom Connector,” InnovateEDU’s “Data Extraction Tool” links up with Google’s “BigQuery” in order to centralize and streamline data-mining of student-learning metrics, including cognitive-behavioral and socio-emotional algorithms, which can track students into career-pathways programmed to fill job quotas in a planned economy… About two weeks before Cuomo announced New York’s Reimagine partnership with Schmidt and Gates, Google published an article on its Keyword blog titled “Check in on Emotional Well-Being During Distance Learning,” which promotes the use of various Google platforms to facilitate “social emotional learning” to help students with the added stresses of COVID lockdown. The author of the Google Keyword article, Alicia Salmeron, who is a member of the Google for Education Team, encourages teachers to utilize Google’s G Suite for Education (GSFE) to “[c]reate emotional check-in opportunities”…”

Resistance is Fertile! – by James Corbett – https://hive.blog/news/@corbettreport/resistance-is-fertile – “We are being studied by the Borg of the new biosecurity paradigm. They are assigning us a “Resistance Quotient.” At the precise moment that the cost/benefit ratio dips below their calculated threshold, they will begin the forced vaccinations (and whatever else they’re planning)… “Resistance is futile” is a lie. It’s a bluff, fed to you by the enemy themselves. They want you to believe that you have no power so that you never attempt to use that power. And if you lay down and let them walk all over you, they will not hesitate to do so… Never forget: Resistance is fertile. You may be defeated, but you will never be assimilated if you don’t give up. Resistance is Fertile!”

The Carney/Freeland Green Reset Shapes Canada’s ‘New Normal’ – by Matthew Ehret – https://fort-russ.com/2020/08/the-carney-freeland-green-reset-shapes-canadas-new-normal/ – “The problem with Carney’s post-COVID vision is that “value” is tied not to the rising of living standards, human creative reason or national productive powers of labour that characterized the creative growth of human civilization for the past several centuries but rather upon the TOTAL INVERSE. By placing values on reducing human activity, reducing carbon footprints, reducing traces of human activity upon the earth- the potential to sustain life will not only be consciously reduced  but financially incentivized. Under a Green New Deal, humanity will effectively be imposing forms of energy, and practices onto ourselves which will ensure that we never participate in any large scale projects characteristic of the New Silk Road, Polar Silk Road, Asteroid Defense etc… and will never become capable of freeing themselves from a Malthusian class of supranational bankers managing a post-nation state world order from above… …If on the other hand, we happen to live in an open system, creative, anti-entropic universe and express a species characteristic of transcending our “limits to growth” by making new discoveries and translating those discoveries into new scientific and technological progress, then not only should Freeland, Carney and other Green New Dealers be removed from all positions of high office, but nations should join the multipolar alliance which puts value on increasing humanity’s potential rather than killing off our species under a 21st century blood letting.”

US is willing to dismantle the UN Security Council to put pressure on Iran – by Scott Ritter – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55493.htm – “The UN Security Council is navigating uncharted waters, having never been confronted with a challenge of this nature in its entire 75-year history. There is every reason to believe that the US will submit a resolution for consideration following the expiration of the 30-day notification period, and then veto it itself, thereby triggering the automatic “snap back” of UN sanctions. There is also every reason to believe that the Security Council will seek to block the US through various procedural formalities designed not to formally recognize the US demands, and thereby preventing the submission of any resolution… A likely outcome will be that the Security Council fails to recognize the US submission of a resolution, followed by the US refusing to recognize the Security Council’s ability to prevent such a resolution from being submitted. The US will seek to submit the resolution, then immediately veto it, and claim that the “snap back” has been accomplished. The rest of the Security Council will reject this action, and deem the JCPOA to be in play, free of UN sanctions. The US will then sanction any party which fails to comply with the UN sanctions… If this were in fact to occur, it would mean the functional death of the UN Security Council, an outcome many in the Trump administration appear willing to live with. Faced with the inevitability of this outcome, some members–especially the French, Germans and Brits–may be compelled to reexamine their position on the lifting of the arms embargo, seeking a compromise solution that salvages the JCPOA while denying Iran access to Russian and Chinese armaments. This may be the goal of the US all along. If so, it is an extremely dangerous one that is based on a false predicate, namely that there is a combination of economic and diplomatic pressure that can be placed on Iran to compel it to renegotiate the JCPOA. Simply put, there is not, and for the Trump administration to proceed as if there is only endangers regional and international peace and security.”

Mali Coup Leader Was Trained by the US – The 2nd US-trained coup leader in 8 yearsby Geoffrey Yorkhttps://www.anti-empire.com/mali-coup-leader-was-trained-by-the-us/ – “Colonel Assimi Goita, who participated in a U.S.-led training exercise last year and graduated from a separate U.S. training course in 2016, has declared himself the chairman of the junta that arrested Mali’s president and prime minister and seized control of the West African country this week… Photos on U.S. websites, now deleted without explanation, show a U.S. military trainer posing with Col. Goita during an exercise in West Africa last year, and U.S. officials giving him a certificate from an educational course at a U.S.-German security centre in 2016… A coup in Mali in 2012 was led by Captain Amadou Sanogo, who received U.S. training on six separate occasions. His involvement in that coup was “very worrisome for us,” the commander of the U.S. Africa Command acknowledged later.”

#BlueLeaks Reveal Fusion Centers Employ Undercover Agents to Target Activists – by Derrick Broze – https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/blueleaks-reveal-fusion-centers-employ-undercover-agents-target-activists/ – “Fusion Centers are centralized systems that pool and analyze intelligence from federal, state, local, and private sector entities. The National Network of Fusion Centers was created after the 9/11 attacks to provide for more streamlined communication between federal and local agencies. The Fusion Centers have been criticized as violations of civil liberties and a danger to separation of federal and local governments, and the abuses of these centers predate #BlueLeaks, including targeting of protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Most infamously, in 2009 it was revealed that the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) was targeting supporters of third party candidates, Ron Paul supporters, anti-abortion activists, and “conspiracy theorists” as potential domestic extremists… Some reports on #BlueLeaks have shown police using counter-surveillance methods on Black Lives Matter protesters and concerns of face masks blocking facial recognition. However, due to the size of the #BlueLeaks files, important information is still being found and reported on.”

Biden Says He Would Shut Country Down if (“Science”) Advisors Told Him To – byJay Greenberg – https://neonnettle.com/news/12406-biden-says-he-would-shut-country-down-if-advisors-told-him-to – “Former Vice President Biden  made the pledge in a Friday interview with ABC News, saying he would “listen to the scientists” and shut down the country again if scientists recommended doing so… ‘I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists,’ Biden declared… Biden made the comments for an interview set to air Sunday while appearing alongside vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris in their first joint interview as the Democratic Party’s official nominees… ‘I will be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus,’ Biden told Muir… ‘In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing, and people employed, you have to fix the virus, you have to deal with the virus.’.. In his Democratic convention speech, Biden said that tackling the coronavirus would be his first task if elected… ‘As president, the first step I will take will be to get control of the virus that’s ruined so many lives,’ Biden said.”

Nolte: Magnificent Mile Riots, Looting Hit Democrat-Run Chicago – by John Nolte – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/08/10/nolte-magnificent-mile-riots-looting-hit-democrat-run-chicago/ – “The details reveal just how organized this was… The looting and rioting started just after midnight and lasted “nearly five hours.”   Get this… “People darted through broken store windows and doors along Michigan Avenue carrying shopping bags full of merchandise,” the Tribune reports, adding, ‘Cars dropped off more people as the crowd grew. At least one U-Haul van was seen pulling up.’.. A U-Haul… People being dropped off like it was just another morning at Looting School… Hundreds of them. All at once… This was not spontaneous… What we appear to have in Chicago is one more act of organized, left-wing terrorism, similar to what we are seeing in other Democrat-run cities, most especially Portland.” – Comment: and New York’s luxury shopping district.

Turkish-Backed Forces Cut Water Supply To 1 Million People In Syria Amid Pandemic – from AlMasdarNews.com – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/syria-urges-un-help-after-turkish-backed-forces-cut-water-supply-1-million-people – “Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, called on the international organization to intervene to end the suffering of the residents of the Syrian city of Hasakah as a result of Turkish authorities’ decision to obstruct the water supply to over 1 million people… In a phone call with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, Dr. Al-Jaafari briefed him on the tragic situation in the city of Hasakah and its environs, as a result of the Turkish regime’s move to shut off the water supply from the Alouk station.”

Germany begins Universal Basic Income trial where people get $1,400 every month for 3 years – Amid the deepening crisis, Germany is set to begin a new trial for universal basic income (UBI), which will entail 120 citizens receiving €1,200, or about $1,430, every month for three years – by Elias Marat – https://themindunleashed.com/2020/08/germany-begins-universal-basic-income-trial-where-people-get-1400-every-month-for-3-years.html – “The volunteers’ experience living on the amount will be compared with that of 1,380 other German citizens who won’t receive the stipends. The experiment, which is being conducted by the German Institute for Economic Research, is being funded through private donations from about 140,000 individuals, reports Business Insider… Political parties and figures both on the traditional left and the right have raised the demand for basic income, and some of its strongest proponents include tech oligarchs and venture capitalists like Peter Thiel, Marc Andreesen, and Jack Dorsey… Critics on the left have suggested that basic income is a neoliberal Trojan horse that would be a vehicle for dismantling what little remains of the welfare state, offering the “paying people for being alive” stipend in exchange for austerity and the destruction of social safety nets that protect the most vulnerable members of society and offer a small barrier to extreme inequality… On the right, however, opponents have claimed that the idea is far too expensive and would disincentivize people from seeking work and would be tantamount to subsidizing “junkies, alcoholics, and scam artists.”

Wells Fargo Preparing To Potentially Cut Tens Of Thousands Of Jobs – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/wells-fargo-preparing-potentially-cut-tens-thousands-jobs – “Wells Fargo has certainly led the way in the banking sector when it comes to things like massive scandals and  botching Small Business Relief Loans – so why not lead the way when it comes to announcing massive layoffs?.. That’s exactly what the bank has done. Under pressure to lower its costs, the bank “quietly ended a moratorium on terminations in recent weeks” according to the LA Daily News. The move is seen as the bank preparing to make deep job cuts… Beth Richek, a spokesperson for the bank, offered up a perfunctory dodge: ‘Starting in early August, we resumed regular job displacement activity.’.. She continued: ‘We are at the beginning of a multiyear effort to build a stronger, more efficient company. We expect to reduce the size of our workforce through a combination of attrition, the elimination of open roles and job displacements.’ ”

Virginia Plans Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations For All Residents – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/virginia-plans-mandatory-covid-19-vaccinations-all-residents – “During an interview that aired on Friday, the state’s health commissioner said he planned to invoke state law to make vaccinations mandatory – once a western product is available, presumably.”

USAID Document Exposes New US Plot to Overthrow Nicaragua’s Elected Socialist Government – by Ben Norton – https://www.globalresearch.ca/document-exposes-new-us-plot-overthrow-nicaragua-elected-socialist-government/5721609 – “The plot is administered by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), a regime-change vehicle that uses the pretense of “humanitarian aid” to advance Washington’s aggressive foreign-policy interests… The document (PDF) details the creation of a new “task order” called Responsive Assistance in Nicaragua (RAIN) and its plan for “Nicaragua’s transition to democracy” – a euphemism for removing the leftist Sandinista Front for National Liberation (known commonly by the Spanish acronym FSLN) from power… In the pages, the US government agency uses hardline neoconservative rhetoric, referring to Nicaragua’s elected government as the “Ortega regime,” and making it clear that Washington wants to install a neoliberal administration that will privatize the economy, impose neoliberal reforms, and purge all institutions of any trace of the leftist Sandinista movement… The USAID regime-change scheme states openly that one of its top “mission goals” is for Nicaragua  to “transition to a rules-based market economy” based on the “protection of private property rights.”

Club Of Rome: Planetary Emergency Plan Declared – commentary by Patrick Wood – https://www.technocracy.news/club-of-rome-planetary-emergency-plan-declared/ – “This is a Planetary Emergency. The definition of an emergency is a dangerous event requiring immediate action to reduce risk of potentially catastrophic results. The impacts of climate change and ecological destruction are more severe and are manifesting themselves earlier than many scientific predictions in previous decades had foreseen… 2020 is a “Super Year” for international policy action. It is the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. It is the first opportunity for nations to increase climate ambition and meet 2050 net-zero goals. A new treaty on the oceans will be agreed. Biodiversity targets will be announced. And 2020 will mark the beginning of the decade to scale action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. This decade must be a turning point, the moment when the world bends the curve, averts the impending disaster and opts instead to embark on the fastest economic transformation in our history. Declaring a Planetary Emergency provides a new compass for nations and injects the essential urgency into decision-making. It will ensure that all action from 2020 will be taken in light of its impact on the stability of Earth’s life-support systems, and be underpinned by the social and economic transformations needed to secure the long-term health and well-being of people and planet.” (emphasis added)

2,700 evangelicals warn against politicizing coronavirus, urge Christians to take vaccine – by Leonardo Blair – https://www.christianpost.com/amp/2700-evangelicals-warn-against-politicizing-coronavirus-urge-christians-to-take-vaccine.html – “A coalition of more than 2,700 high-profile evangelicals spanning the fields of science and religion have signed onto a statement billed “A Christian Statement on Science for Pandemic Times,” which warns against the politicization of the new coronavirus and urges Christians to take appropriate action against it, including taking a vaccine when it’s ready… “We are deeply concerned about the polarization and politicization of science in the public square when so many lives are at stake. The word ‘science’ has become a weapon in the culture wars. Scientists are vilified and their findings ignored, while conspiracy theories go viral. Sadly, Christians seem just as susceptible to these trends. Thoughtful Christians may disagree on public policy in response to the coronavirus, but none of us should ignore clear scientific evidence,” the statement published online by the nonprofit organization  BioLogos says… ‘We call on all Christians to follow the advice of public health experts and support scientists doing crucial biomedical research on COVID-19.’ ”

“Influence And Outreach”: The UK’s Evolving PsyOps Capabilityhttps://southfront.org/influence-and-outreach-the-uks-evolving-psyops-capability/ – “The majority of these operations are assigned to and carried out by 15 (United Kingdom) Psychological Operations Group. It was a tri-service or “purple”, military unit formerly parented by 1 Military Intelligence Brigade but from April 2014, part of the Security Assistance Group within the British Army’s Force Troops Command… Since April 2015, it has been subsumed into 77th Brigade within Force Troops Command… The 15 (UK) Psychological Operations Group’s history is relatively short. It was established immediately after the 1991 Gulf War when the success of US military psychological operations convinced the Ministry of Defence that the UK required a similar capability. Initially, it was composed of just a single desk officer with the intention that it would be augmented by additional personnel when required. As such, the group was referred to in military terminology as a ‘shadow’ unit.”

Seven defendants in the criminal case – Russian citizens – have already been arrested… ‘As a result of a special operation, the FSB of the Russian Federation uncovered and suppressed an illegal action by the special services of Ukraine on the abduction on the territory of Russia and the forcible transfer to Ukraine of a citizen of the Russian Federation, one of the leaders of the Donbass people’s militia, who took an active part in hostilities against the Ukrainian Armed Forces,’ the FSB press service reported.… The development reportedly took place near Moscow…The organizers and coordinators of the action were the citizens of Ukraine Andriy Baidala and Igor Mishchenko.”

“This War Can’t Be Civil”: Berkeley Columnist Calls For “Violent Resistance” – by Jonathan Turley – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/war-cant-be-civil-berkeley-columnist-calls-violent-resistance – “In his column entitled “This War Can’t Be Civil,” Alqahtani mocks those who seek non-violent change and while ‘quoting Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. about peaceful protest and resistance.’.. He declared: ‘ “Radical love” my ass. It disgusts me that the oppressors’ emotions and well-being (in all contexts, from institutions to individuals) are the first to be considered and accommodated whenever people question the validity of armed or violent resistance.’.. Alqahtani is willing to accept a role for peaceful protests but insists that people need to give violence a chance…”

Here’s How 2020 Compares With The Great Depression – by Daisy Luther – https://www.zerohedge.com/personal-finance/heres-how-2020-compares-great-depression – “This video analysis by Brian Duff compares our current-day crisis and the one that began in 1929 and the similarities are pretty alarming. Also, this is a new YouTube channel I strongly recommend. It’s going to have some incredible information – trust me when I tell you that you’re going to want to subscribe and give him a “like.”.. The biggest difference I see between these two eras – and this is the thing that will be our downfall – is that we are now a nation of consumers instead of producers… Back in the 1920s and 1930s, people had the skills required to do things like producing food, preserving their harvests, and building structures, to name a few. In our current time, skills like this are few and far between outside the preparedness and homesteading world… This lack of skills will carry over into a much more dependent populace in our current day and age.”

The Devastation Of The Middle Class: It Now Takes 53 Weeks Of Median Wages Every Year To Pay For Basic Needs – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/devastation-middle-class-it-now-takes-53-weeks-median-wages-year-pay-basic-needs – “As Bank of America points out, while the recent covid shutdowns has thrown the economy into disarray with millions laid off and living on government stimulus checks, life for the vast majority of workers – i.e., those who comprise the country’s middle class – was already precarious before the pandemic, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Cost of Thriving Index… Consider that in 1985 it took 30 weeks at the median wage to pay for big fixed costs like housing, health care, a car, and education; fast forward to today when it takes a mathematically impossible 53 weeks of a 52-week year to buy those things… In other words, as BofA puts it, ‘thriving’ has become impossible for the average worker’ and adds that  it’s no wonder that the uncertainty of forecasts for future growth remains near record highs.’ ”

80 Nights in Portland: Rioters Chant ‘Kill a Cop, Save a Life’ as Two Officers Hospitalized – by Penny Starr – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/08/16/80-nights-portland-rioters-chant-kill-cop-save-life-two-officers-hospitalized/ – “Nightly violent riots continued in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday, with rioters chanting ‘Kill a Cop, Save a Life’ and hurling objects at police that resulted in two officers being hospitalized… Police said a clash took place between Antifa and a group of about 30 people who gathered to show support for police. A video posted on journalist Andy Ngo’s Twitter account shows alleged Antifa members harassing others as they leave the site of the riot… The Portland Police Department said that a crowd “of hundreds” marched to the Penumbra Kelly Building, which houses the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and Portland Police Bureau. The building is in a residential neighborhood and is surrounded by hundreds of homes… The department said that ‘officers reported members of the crowd were launching mortars at the police and cars well back in the Penumbra Kelly Building parking lot, followed by thrown objects’ as the rioters started to trespass on the property. – https://twitter.com/PortlandPolice/status/1294892446808039425 … ‘Portland Police gave more announcements and force warnings,’ the police said. ‘For the next twenty minutes people in the crowd increased their violent actions toward police officers who were standing behind cars fifty feet or more away from the crowd. Officers reported having rocks, frozen eggs, glass bottles, and frozen water bottles thrown at them. Officers reported people were shining green lasers at them, which is against the law in Oregon. Somebody spray painted over a security camera on the Penumbra Kelly Building.’ ”

‘Disavowed’ BLM Leader Defends Looting & Rioting Because “US Steals Diamonds & Oil” – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/disavowed-blm-leader-defends-looting-rioting-because-us-steals-diamonds-oilWell, so we are moving on past Rudy Giuliani and we’re moving into looting and a form of reparation,’ Newsome responded… ‘Let’s be very careful and I’d appreciate if you let me speak. Let’s be very careful. The problem with oppression and white supremacy is, white supremacy will have you criticizing the oppressed and worshiping the oppressors… Now, if you want to talk to me about reparations, nothing falls short of a solution other than people cutting a check.’.. ‘So when America goes and steals diamonds and oils, who’s calling us terrorists?  When the American government goes and pillages different countries, who’s calling us terrorists?,’ exclaimed Hawk Newsome, the head of the New York branch of BLM, refusing to condemn looting as an ethically questionable activity during a very testy interview with on Fox News Channel’s Martha MacCallum… It is not the first time Newsome has sparked controversy. In June,  Newsome made incendiary remarks during a cable news that: ‘If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.’..

Facebook Bans Hundreds Of QAnon Groups, Pages And Instagram Accounts – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/facebook-bans-hundreds-qanon-groups-pages-and-instagram-accounts – “Facebook on Wednesday announced that it has banned hundreds of pages, groups, and Instagram accounts tied to “US-based militia organizations and QAnon, according to a blog post… The company claims they have ‘seen growing movements that, while not directly organizing violence, have celebrated violent acts, shown that they have weapons and suggest they will use them, or have individual followers with patterns of violent behavior.’..So – a group which has done nothing wrong, but might, and who have scary followers, is no longer allowed on the platform… Apparently Facebook’s censorship doesn’t apply to Antifa – a group with aggressive, armed members who routinely organize protests over Facebook. For example, a Texas Antifa Cell, Red Guards Austin, has a blog post entitled “Everywhere a Battlefield” in which they claim ‘The war is not coming – it is here and now.‘ ”

Uncovering Faces Of Belarusian Oppositionhttps://southfront.org/uncovering-faces-of-belarusian-opposition/ – “The crisis in Belarus does not seem coming to the end but rather deepening with opposition forces actively creating structures alternative to the existing governing system of the country… The Coordination Council of the Belarusian opposition, formed under the brand of former presidential candidate Svetlana Tsikhanovskaya hiding in Lithuania, released on August 19 demanding the Lukashenko government to annul the result of the presidential election, release all ‘political prisoners’, and hold a new ‘fair’ presidential election…. Belarus entered the August 9 presidential election and the days following it amid the peak of protest sentiments. The cornerstone of this situation is the existing economic and social problems, the general dissatisfaction of the population with the ruling of Alexander Lukashenko and apparent falsifications during the election (80.10% of votes gained by Lukashenko is at least unlikely). As the recent weeks demonstrated, this situation was successfully exploited by forces that destroyed Ukraine and earlier Serbia… The personality and scale of influence of Vladimir Makei, who is often called the ‘second person’ in Belarus, are another factor allowing to get a more realistic look at Lukashenko’s Belarus. Makei has served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus since 2012 and kept his position even after the August 9 election. During this period, he become widely known as a supporter of the pro-Western foreign policy course and a person with deep ties with the Euro-Atlantic establishment. The foreign ministry headed by such a person became a tool of influence of Euro-Atlantic structures inside the Belarusian government. The recent public declarations of mid-level foreign policy officials in support of the opposition signals about the ideological characteristics of the ministry’s staff.”

A Closer Look At Belarusian Opposition’s Heavily Anti-Russian National Policy Planshttps://southfront.org/a-closer-look-at-belarusian-oppositions-heavily-anti-russian-national-policy-plans/ – “Before being taken down, the election campaign website of Belarus Presidential candidate Svetlana Tsikhanovskaya had an entire program for the future development of Belarus as a country… In a relatively hidden section, it has a section named “National Policy” which reveals the opposition’s plan for Belarus eventual entry into NATO and the EU… The website has since been taken down; however, it can still be found on web archive.”

SYRIA SITREP: Tensions Turn Into Massive Escalation – by Drago Bosnic – https://fort-russ.com/2020/08/syria-sitrep-tensions-turn-into-massive-escalation/ – “USAF airstrike on an SAA checkpoint cause Syrians to stage a rally against US occupation: Hundreds of Syrians staged separate demonstrations in the country’s northeastern oil-rich province of Hasaka to express their outrage over a recent US airstrike against regular Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces, which killed at least one Syrian soldier and wounded several others… Since late October 2019, the US has been redeploying troops to the oil fields controlled by Kurdish forces in eastern Syria, in a reversal of President Donald Trump’s earlier order to withdraw all troops from the Arab country… The Pentagon claims the move aims to “protect” the fields and facilities from “possible attacks by Daesh (ISIL or ISIS)”. That claim came although the US had earlier suggested that it sought economic interests in controlling the oil fields. The presence of US forces in eastern Syria has particularly irked the civilians, and local residents have on several occasions stopped American military convoys from entering the region… A Russian major-general was killed in an IED explosion in Syria while two servicemen were wounded, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday. An improvised roadside bomb exploded 15 km from the city of Deir Ez-Zor when a Russian military convoy was returning to its base after a humanitarian mission on August 18, the ministry’s press office said, according to TASS… Several rockets exploded on Tuesday at a US military base, north of Syria’s Deir Ez-Zor province. The attack targeted a US base near the Conoco oil field controlled by American troops and Kurdish militants. No information about possible casualties among US occupation troops is available so far… This is the first-ever attack on one of the 12 military facilities, created by the United States since 2015 in Syria’s provinces of al-Hasakah, Raqqa and Deir Ez-Zor… A pair of US drones crashed following what was allegedly a “mid-air collision” in Syria, destroying both UAVs, The Military Times reported. The alleged collision took place over the Idlib province on Tuesday, an anonymous defense official told The Military Times, though offered few other details about the “mishap”, declining to confirm what caused the crash or what type of drones were involved… Photos and videos circulating online – which show debris falling from the sky and flaming wreckage on the ground – indicate that at least one of the craft was an American MQ-9 Reaper drone…”

BlackRock CEO Larry Fink: Profits With A Purpose Are Vital For Survivability & Profitability | CNBC (12 min)

Lockdowns, Coronavirus, and Banks: Following the Money – by Prof. Anthony Hall –  https://ahtribune.com/world/covid-19/4346-following-the-money.html – “Accordingly, there is ample cause to ask if there are major underlying reasons for the financial crash of 2020 other than the misnamed pandemic and the lockdowns done in its name of “flattening” its spikes of infection. At the same time, there is ample cause to recognize that the lockdowns have been a very significant factor in the depth of the economic debacle that is making 2020 a year like no other… Some go further. They argue that the financial crash of 2020 was not only anticipated but planned and pushed forward with clear understanding of its instrumental role in the Great Reset sought by self-appointed protagonists of creative destruction. The advocates of this interpretation place significant weight on the importance of the lockdowns as an effective means of obliterating in a single act a host of old economic relationships. For instance Peter Koenig  examines the ‘farce and diabolical agenda of a universal lockdown.’..

They said they received a call that “protesters chased a white Ford 4×4, which has crashed” at that location and “protestors drug him out of car.” Another witness called and reported that 9-10 people were “beating the guy.” Responding officers found Haner  unconscious with injuries… The police provided in an earlier release chronological links to videos of events leading up to the beating, posted on Twitter by journalists (WARNING GRAPHIC):”

Turkey Slams Joe Biden’s “Ignorant” Vows In Support Of Regime Changehttps://southfront.org/turkey-slams-joe-bidens-ignorant-vows-in-support-of-regime-change/ – “He declared that he would work with “opposition leadership” in the country to topple Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey’s 2023 elections… ‘Do you feel comfortable with the United States still having nuclear weapons in Turkey given Erdogan’s behavior?’ Kathleen Kingsbury, New York Times’ deputy editorial page editor, asked Biden… ‘The answer is my comfort level is diminished a great deal. I’ve spent a lot of time with Erdogan,’ Biden responded, describing Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s democratically elected president, as an “autocrat.”.. Biden added that if he is elected this November, his administration will pursue a policy of intervention against Turkey’s elected government.” – Comment: A Biden presidency – What could go wrong?

Africa to Become Testing Ground for “Trust Stamp” Vaccine Record and Payment System – A new biometric identity platform partnered with the Gates-funded GAVI vaccine alliance and Mastercard will launch in West Africa and combine COVID-19 vaccinations, cashless payments, and potential law enforcement applications -by Raul Diego – https://www.mintpressnews.com/africa-trust-stamp-covid-19-vaccine-record-payment-system/269346/ – “A biometric digital identity platform that “evolves just as you evolve” is set to be introduced  in “low-income, remote communities” in West Africa thanks to a public-private partnership between the Bill Gates-backed GAVI vaccine alliance, Mastercard and the AI-powered “identity authentication” company, Trust Stamp… The program, which was first launched in late 2018, will see Trust Stamp’s digital identity platform integrated into the GAVI-Mastercard “Wellness Pass,” a digital vaccination record and identity system that is also linked to Mastercard’s click-to-play system that powered by its AI and machine learning technology called NuData. Mastercard, in addition to professing its commitment to promoting “centralized record keeping of childhood immunization” also describes itself as a leader toward a “World Beyond Cash,” and its partnership with GAVI marks a novel approach towards linking a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a payment system into a single cohesive platform.”

Is This The End Of COMEX Paper Gold? – by Tom Luongo – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/luongo-end-comex-paper-gold – “And now, the question on a lot of people’s minds is whether we’ll see the end of the fiction of the paper gold market as epitomized by the futures market on the COMEX… Alistair Macleod’s recent article detailed the gyrations of the gold futures market explains why he felt the so-called bullion banks who work with the central banks to keep gold control have, in fact, lost control… His detailed the use of open interest on the COMEX to push and pull the price of gold and how the market changed after March 23rd when the futures premiums blew out to a high of $70 over the cash price in the forex markets… It’s not a producer/consumer hedging platform. It’s a currency hedging/speculator platform… But in 2020 it’s now a source of physical gold supply for someone and the COMEX isn’t happy about it at all… The latest raid on gold began on Friday and continued through Tuesday. When all was said and done more than $200 got knocked off the price, peak to trough… What’s even more impressive is that the COMEX, after Monday’s follow-through beat down, did what it always does to protect itself, it raised margin requirements on both gold and silver to force even more liquidations from now exposed and under-water longs… But it didn’t work!.. There was weakness in the overnight Asian markets but once Europe opened the price rebounded and by the time the COMEX opened gold was trading at a higher price than the previous close… And in the case of the COMEX I fully expect the current gold futures contract to go the way of the U.S. dollar, decoupled completely from physical redemption…Some folks seem to think this will drive the price to zero. It might, but only after driving the price to infinity…The more likely scenario is that there won’t be any gold available at any price. Once that occurs, then the value of the contract could vaporize… What the COMEX doesn’t want to admit to the market is that its gold futures contract isn’t a real futures market but rather a speculation/hedging platform as I said earlier.”

What’s Going on Here? Why the Heck Did Twitter Send #MillieWeaver to TOP TRENDING! (50 min) – from Brian at High Impact Flix

BREAKING: Millie Weaver wasn’t arrested; she was ABDUCTED by the deep state and is being held for possible interrogation – by Mike Adams – https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-08-14-millie-weaver-wasnt-arrested-she-was-abducted-by-the-deep-state.html – “According to deep background sources, Millie Weaver was abducted by deep state operators today and is being held under the false authority of deep state operatives. She was not arrested by any lawful process, and there was no legitimate “grand jury” indictment… Understand that this is a fast-moving story, and new information may help clarify this story as details unfold. But to the best of what we know so far, Millie Weaver is now a political prisoner being held by the deep state…If these sources are correct, Millie Weaver and her husband are victims of a “snatch-and-grab” operation, and a counterfeit indictment document may have been produced by the deep state, but it would have been created completely outside any legitimate process of law, much like Obama’s fake birth certificate… Millie Weaver is now a political prisoner of the deep state. This is what they do to enemies who expose them.”

Putin Reiterates Russia’s Support for Belarus as Rallies Held in Minskhttps://sputniknews.com/europe/202008161080184181-live-updates-belarus-opposition-candidate-tsepkalo-to-meet-top-us-officials-as-protests-enter-day-8/ – “Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko have discussed the situation in Belarus taking account the pressure exerted on the republic from outside, Belta news agency reported on Sunday citing Putin and Lukashenko’s telephone talk. President Putin reaffirmed his committment to aid Belarus in resolving its problems via the Collective Security Treaty. The two politicians held a similar phone conversation the previous day… The phone talk comes as two rallies are taking place on Sunday in Minsk: one in support of the government and the other opposing it… Earlier in the day, Belarusian former presidential contender Valery Tsepkalo, who fled the country in July, arrived in Ukraine with plans to move to Warsaw with his family, where he will meet with high-ranking officials from Washington, his campaign office revealed.”

Economist Calls for $800,000 in Reparations for Every Black Household in America – Duke University economist William Darity Jr. proposes $12 trillion fund – by Jay Greenberg – https://neonnettle.com/news/12335-economist-calls-for-800-000-in-reparations-for-every-black-household-in-america – “Darity Jr. and his wife Kirsten Mullen co-authored the report for The Roosevelt Institute, which argues that the Trump Administration is “culpable” and “must pay the debt.”.. “[The] US government—the culpable party—must pay the debt,” the report proclaims… ‘Ultimately, respect for black Americans as people and as citizens—and acknowledgment, redress, and closure for the history and financial hardship they have endured—requires monetary compensation.’ ”

Math education prof: 2+2 = 4 ‘trope’ ‘reeks of white supremacy patriarchy’ – by Ben Zeisloft – https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15409 – “Math professors and educators at leading American universities have taken to Twitter in order to debate whether math is racist… Some asserted that objective mathematics is rooted in “white supremacist patriarchy” and white social constructs… ‘People say it’s subjectivism to ask if math is Western. I don’t get that.’.. The debate itself was rooted in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, in which citizens of a fictional totalitarian state believe that 2 plus 2 equals 5 as a result of government propaganda… Laurie Rubel, who teaches math education at Brooklyn College, says that the idea of math being culturally neutral is a “myth,” and that asking whether 2 plus 2 equals 4 “reeks of white supremacist patriarchy.’.. Rochelle Gutierrez, who teaches “Sociopolitical Perspectives on Mathematics and Science Education” at the University of Illinois, responded to a tweet from a former educator claiming that the U.S. “colonizes” math.”.. ‘By now it is well known, for example, that other cultures were using the theorem we call Pythagorean, yet we still refer to it with this name. This is colonization and erasure,’ the tweet from the former educator read.’.. Gutierrez responded with, ‘YES! This attends to the Cultures/Histories dimension of RM (addressing Western/Eurocentric maths). And, we also want to attend to the Living Practice dimension (which is more about imagining a version that builds upon ancestral knowings, but does not yet exist).’ ”

Escobar On Battleground Beirut: Western Colony Or Back To The East? – by Pepe Escobar – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-battleground-beirut-western-colony-or-back-east – “In stark contrast with the exploitative perpetuation of the Western neoliberal model, China is offering Lebanon the chance to Go East, and be part of the New Silk Roads… In 2017, Lebanon signed to join the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)… In 2018, Lebanon became the 87th member of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)… Over the past few years, Lebanon was already taking part in the internationalization of the yuan, offering bank accounts in yuan and increasing bilateral trade in yuan… Beijing was already engaged in discussions revolving around the upgrading of Lebanese infrastructure – including the expansion of Beirut harbor… This means that now Beijing may be in the position of offering a renewed, joint rebuilding/security deal for Beirut port – just as it was about to clinch a smaller agreement with Diab’s government, focused only on expansion and renovation… The bottom line is that China has an actual Plan A to extricate Lebanon from its current financial dead end.”

Here’s Why The “Impossible” Economic Collapse Is Unavoidable – by Charles Hugh Smith – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/heres-why-impossible-economic-collapse-unavoidable – “We’re already in a post-normal world because the expansion of globalization and financialization needed to fuel the Old Normal has reversed into contraction. This reversal is an extinction event for all sectors and institutions with high fixed costs: air travel, resort tourism, healthcare, higher education, local government services, etc. because their fixed cost structures are so high they are no longer financially viable if they’re operating at less than full capacity… Only getting back to 70% of previous capacity, revenues, tax receipts, etc. dooms them to collapse… And there’s no way to cut their fixed costs without fatally disrupting all the sectors that are dependent on them.

Most operational costs are mandated and cannot be reduced: union contracts, property taxes, regulatory burdens, tax accounting, debt service, employee healthcare costs, minimum wages, etc. Other essential expenses such as commercial rent are difficult to renegotiate lower, as the landlord also has the same high fixed costs and any reduction comes directly out of his pocket.”

With Harris Pick, Democrats Cede Election To Trump – by Tom Luongo – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/luongo-harris-pick-democrats-cede-election-trump – “Harris was simply the only choice they could make after Biden announced his running mate would be a ‘woman of color’ and there was little chance he’d choose party gadfly Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) since he’s as globalist, empire-defender as everyone else in charge at the DNC… The other possibilities were not serious. And Susan Rice has two real strikes against her. One, she has no name recognition. And two, she may wind up being indicted by John Durham before the election… In fact, if you read between the lines, Rice not being the choice is a signal that the DNC’s legal troubles are a lot more serious than anyone is willing to let on... The far better choice for the DNC strategically would have been Elizabeth Warren. Now, while Warren is just as much an unlikeable harpy as Harris is, she’s also more of a true moderate who could campaign to bring the party back from the brink… Moreover, since she is one, she would have shored up the so-called ‘Karen Vote’ which is a core Democratic constituency far better than Harris can… The only way I think this pick works for them is that they try to claw back their support for BLM and Antifa by putting the strong authoritarian Harris at the top of the ticket. As Gabbard pointed out in the debates last year, no California Attorney General put more black men in prison than Harris.

Is There a Pandemic? – by Dr. Colleen Huber – https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/there-pandemic – “However, only 32 weeks have elapsed in 2020. For each previous year, 52 weeks have already elapsed. How then can we compare deaths from all causes in 2020 to previous years? In this paper, I divide total deaths by number of weeks to arrive at number of deaths per week for each of the last 21 years, January 1, 2000 through August 8, 2020… The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) lists total deaths for many previous years. The CDC also provides number of deaths from all causes in 2020. On examination of the data for the first two decades of the 21st century in this paper, it is seen that the 2020 weekly total death rate in the US is the lowest in a decade, and second lowest in the 21st century so far.” (emphasis added)

Better Public Compliance Through Mass Drugging – by Janet Phelan – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/08/better-public-compliance-through-mass-drugging.html – “According to Parker Crutchfield, Associate Professor of Medical Ethics, Humanities and Law, Western Michigan University, Americans need a injection of “moral enhancement.” Crutchfield is concerned that Americans are not following the guidelines for wearing masks and social distancing, and states that “When someone chooses not to follow public health guidelines around the coronavirus, they’re defecting from the public good.” There seems to be no room in Crutchfield’s thinking for a debate on what constitutes the “public good” as he dismisses dissent as “Selfish and self-defeating behavior.”.. The remedy, according to Crutchfield, is to dose Americans with “empathy-producing” chemicals. He writes ‘…like receiving a vaccine to beef up your immune system, people could take a substance to boost their cooperative, pro-social behavior. Could a psychoactive pill be the solution to the pandemic?’ ”

Michelle Obama to go to bat for Biden – by Amie Parnes – https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/512110-michelle-obama-to-go-to-bat-for-biden – “One of the most highly anticipated moments of the Democratic National Convention will come Monday, when Michelle Obama will deliver an address that is expected to shine a harsh light on President Trump while urging Democrats to get out and vote… The former first lady and one of the nation’s most popular political figures, Obama has grown increasingly frustrated with the country’s direction… ‘I think she’ll come hard at Trump, in the most artful way,” said one ally to the former first lady. “I think it will be one of the most defining and memorable speeches of this entire cycle.’.. ‘She has the most powerful voice to get out the vote,’ the ally said… Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is counting on Obama to jump-start a convention held under the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic.”

US Seizes 4 Iranian Fuel Tankers En Route To Venezuela, Diverts To Houston – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/us-seizes-4-iranian-fuel-tankers-en-route-venezuela-diverts-houston – ” Later in July, when Iran again sent tankers for a second round of deliveries, which the two countries earlier announced would be ‘routine’, US federal prosecutors filed a lawsuit for the seizure of over 1.1 million barrels of gasoline on the four vessels. A judge issued a warrant for the seizure, but it remained unclear whether this could or would be carried out if the tankers never enter US territorial waters… The efforts apparently met with success, as The Wall Street Journal reports, ‘One official said the vessels had been taken over without the use of military force but didn’t provide any details.’.. No doubt it was done either in international waters or in the territory of an ally friendly to the US maximum pressure campaign seeking to choke Tehran. The vessels – the Luna, Panid, Bering, and Bella – are now in US custody, said by the WSJ to be en route to Houston.”

Lockdown Restrictions Are A Test To See How Much Tyranny Americans Will Accept – by Brandon Smith – http://alt-market.com/index.php/articles/4302-lockdown-restrictions-are-a-test-to-see-how-much-tyranny-americans-will-accept – “The pandemic lockdowns are a complicated issue, and that is absolutely deliberate. The point of 4th Generation psychological warfare is to present the target individual or population with a hard choice – a no-win scenario. You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t. I often equate this to the key moves in a difficult chess game; your primary goal is to create a dual threat and force your opponent to sacrifice one piece over another in order to escape with the least amount of damage. Do this a few times and you have won the long game… To be clear, I respect the private property rights of businesses that want customers to wear masks or take other precautions in their establishments. I have the right to not shop at those businesses if I don’t like it. The problems arise when government officials try to FORCE businesses to institute pandemic restrictions or to close down completely. An even bigger problem arises when governments try to force pandemic restrictions onto individuals in their everyday lives. This is simply unacceptable… Government edicts forcing people to social distance or wear masks or deny them the right to free assembly, once instituted, will probably never go away. Once government has the power to dictate your movements and behavior as if your moment-by-moment decisions are a threat to “public health”, they have total power to do anything they wish.”

BLM Mob Storms Neighborhood, Demands White Folk ‘Give Your Homes to Black People’ – by Jay Greenberg – https://neonnettle.com/news/12323-blm-mob-storms-neighborhood-demands-white-folk-give-your-homes-to-black-people- – “A mob of Black Lives Matter activists descended on a Seattle neighborhood this week, demanding that white residents surrender their homes and ‘give them back to black people.’.. Crowds gathered outside homes of white folks in the dead of night, shone torches into people’s windows, and yelled demands through loudspeakers… The leftists were filmed shouting obscenities at white residents whom they accused of gentrification and “stealing” their property… ‘Get the f*** out” and “give us our sh** back,’ the mob – many of whom appeared to be white themselves – shouted at residents… ‘All y’all white motherf***ers get the f*** out our neighborhoods so we can go back to [inaudible] … get the f*** out,’ one of the “protesters” yelled… ‘Get the f*** out and give sh** back. Give us our sh** back. Get the f*** out and give us our sh** back.’ “

Tony Fauci and the Swine Flu disaster; betrayal of trust – by Jon Rappoport – https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2020/08/14/tony-fauci-and-the-swine-flu-disaster-betrayal-of-trust/ – “Fauci was, in fact, recommending a highly dangerous vaccine for protection against AN EPIDEMIC THAT DIDN’T EXIST AT ALL… His friends and professional colleagues at the CDC were creating the hoax… Let me run it down for you… In the summer of 2009, the CDC was claiming there were thousands of Swine Flu cases in the US. But behind these statistics lay an unnerving secret. A major crime, considering the CDC’s mandate to report the truth to the American people: Secretly, the CDC had stopped counting cases of Swine Flu… What? Why?.. CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, discovered the CDC secret; and she found out why… The routine lab testing of tissue samples from the most likely Swine Flu patients was coming back, in the overwhelming percentage of cases, with: NO SIGN OF SWINE FLU OR ANY OTHER KIND OF FLU… Attkisson wrote an article about this scandal, and it was published on the CBS News website. However, the next, bigger step—putting out the story on CBS television news—was waylaid. No deal. And CBS shut down any future investigation on the subject.”

Nicholas Kollerstrom, Ph.D.: The Coronavirus Pandemic: Planned in the US, Activated in the UKhttps://lightonconspiracies.com/nicholas-kollerstrom-ph-d-the-coronavirus-pandemic-planned-in-the-us-activated-in-the-uk/ – “Here is a British expert Iain Davies commenting on this in the Off-Guardian (one of the best UK sites on this topic): ‘Nor is there any evidence that lockdown regimes have any positive impact upon infection rates. Comparisons between severe lockdown states and those who opted for less draconian measures reveal no advantage to placing your population under house arrest… Oxford University found a direct correlation between infection rates and the relative severity of lockdown regimes. It suggests the more stringent the lockdown, the higher the infection rate. This is not unexpected, as numerous epidemiological studies have shown that infection rates for C19 are higher when people are exposed to it for prolonged periods in confined spaces. Locking people up in their homes is probably the worst thing you could do if you wanted to reduce the infections and the duration of the outbreak.’.. The synchronies here are important. The death of Kary Mullis is reported on 12th of August, the day before Operation Crimson Contagion begins. He is the one person everyone would have liked to consult about this whole scam: honest, well-informed and fearless, a Nobel-prize winning biochemist. He had to go before the whole thing could happen… So the whole thing was blueprinted in America, but the ‘On’ switch to activate the program was in London. A paper appeared on March 17th with thirty authors from Imperial College, London. It predicted two million dead in the USA, half a million dead in the UK. Its been said that no science paper ever had such an effect. Suddenly politicians were talking about ‘exponential’ growth of the illness. Clearly, Lockdown was the answer – with no time for Parliament to discuss it! No British scientist has so consistent a record of being catastrophically wrong as Neil Ferguson, but he’s very good at invoking fear, which politicians seem to need these days. The entire Event 201 program was activated by this paper.”

New York City Police Use Pandemic To Create COVID-19 Checkpoints – by MassPrivateI – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/08/new-york-city-police-use-pandemic-to-create-covid-19-checkpoints.html – “The city has the audacity to claim that these stops are “quick and educational.” There is nothing quick and educational about being stopped and questioned by government officials… Is there anything educational about fining people $10,000 dollars?.. Imagine getting off a train or bus in New York City and being forced to go through a government checkpoint. This is America, you say? I can refuse to answer their questions, right?.. People who refuse to answer their questions could be fined anywhere from $2,000-$10,000… A spokeswoman for City Hall said refusing to fill out the quarantine form could subject travelers from designated states to a $2000 fine, and violations of the quarantine orders could result in a $10,000 fine… Three years ago, I revealed that police have created thirty-three different types of checkpoints. But this latest ploy; using a pandemic as an excuse to create another police checkpoint, is inexcusable… COVID-19 checkpoints make a mockery of police reform and tramples our Bill of Rights. It is only a matter of time before COVID-19 checkpoints spread across the country.”

School teacher worries about ‘conservative’ parents overhearing indoctrination during ‘virtual’ classes – by J.C McCallum – https://newsthud.com/school-teacher-worries-about-conservative-parents-overhearing-indoctrination-during-virtual-classes/ – “To give you some idea of the blowback Matthew R. Kay received for his illuminating comments, he’s made his entire twitter account private… But it wasn’t all bad as Matt Walsh notes… Many teachers shared the same frustrations and explained how they would try and get around the situation: ‘It’s important to note that while some teachers responded to Kay’s comments with the appropriate level of horror and disgust, many others chimed in to share their own strategies for brainwashing during a pandemic… One teacher said she’d also been “thinking about” the problem Kay described, and had decided that she’d ask students about their preferred pronouns via survey — though she still worries that “caregivers” might see it and learn something about their children that they weren’t supposed to know… Another teacher said that students last semester would sometimes “type secrets into the chat” whenever the discussion turned to ‘anti-racism and gender inclusive content.’.. Another complained that a white parent— she made sure to specify “white” — in her district recorded a Zoom class and “filed a complaint against the teacher for an anti-racist read aloud (saying the teacher’s commentary was inappropriate and biased).” This, the teacher says, “is going to be an issue.” ‘

This woman accusing Joe Biden of sexual assault had one question for Kamala Harris – by David Lindfield – https://newspushed.com/this-woman-accusing-joe-biden-of-sexual-assault-had-one-question-for-kamala-harris/ – “Tara Reade stepped forward this spring to credibly accuse Joe Biden of sexual assault back in 1993 when Reade claimed Biden put his hand up her skirt and penetrated her with his fingers… Several witnesses stepped forward to corroborate Reade’s account saying she told them of this alleged assault at the time it happened… And now that Biden picked Kamala Harris as his running mate, Reade is demanding the media ask her if she still stands by her statement from 2019 that she believed the women who accused Joe Biden of making them feel uncomfortable with unwanted touching, kissing, and hugging… ‘Journalists should be asking her pointedly why there was a smear campaign on me and why Kamala was so aggressive and assertive with Kavanaugh, and here she knows there is a credible sexual assault accusation against Sen. Biden,’ Reade told Newsbusters in an exclusive interview.”

Towards a US-China War? The Creation of a Global Totalitarian System, A “One World Government”? – Is this a Remake of the 1941 Hitler Stalin Great War? – by F. William Engdahl – https://www.globalresearch.ca/remake-1941-hitler-stalin-great-war/5720769 – ” One of the great mysteries of that China growth is the fact that China was allowed to become the “workshop of the world” after 2001, first in lower-skill industries such as textiles or toys, later in pharmaceuticals and most recently in electronics assembly and production. The mystery clears up when we look at the idea that the PTB and their financial houses, using China, want to weaken strong industrial powers, especially the United States, to push their global agenda. Brzezinski often wrote that the nation state was to be eliminated, as did his patron, David Rockefeller. By allowing China to become a rival to Washington in economy and increasingly in technology, they created the means to destroy the superpower hegemony of the US… That shift to a China strategy for global tech domination might well have triggered a decision by the globalist PTB that China could no longer be relied on to play by the rules of the globalists, but rather that the CCP under Xi were determined to make China the global leader in advanced industrial, AI and bio-technologies. A resurgent China nationalist global hegemony was not the idea of the New World Order gang… China:2025 combined with Xi’s strong advocacy of the Belt Road Initiative for global infrastructure linking China by land and sea to all Eurasia and beyond, likely suggested to the globalists that the only solution to the prospect of their losing their power to a China global hegemon would ultimately be war, a war that would destroy both nationalist powers, USA AND China. This is my conclusion and there is much to suggest this is now taking place.”

Jim Stone on Kamala Harrishttp://82.221.129.208/.vf6.html – “EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT KAMALA HARRIS straight from the Times of Israel.

Key points, All of this is stated in this Times of Israel report:

She’s married to a Jew and followed the Jewish rituals during her marriage, which likely means she is a Jew (but they won’t admit that)

She fundraised for Israel, which is something Jews would do

She’s going to ram “hate crimes” legislation through like nobody’s business, if she gets in WATCH OUT, your web history will be deeply scrutinized and if you ever said Jews were guilty of anything, you’ll be toast, retroactively.

She is 100 percent Jewish supported, they are behind her TOTALLY.

She’s more AIPAC than even normal Jews are

MARK MY WORD: THE ELECTION WILL BE STOLEN. The Jews are going to use countless fake ID’s printed in China, will hand them out in their synagogues and have every damn Jew vote as many times as it takes to overwhelm the entire population of the United States. Whether or not Trump realizes that’s how the election got stolen, he will know it was stolen. And when he scrutinizes this, the same military Obama set up will go in and remove him with force. That’s why they are talking about that now, they know the public knows they are going to steal this election, and they know they are going to have to enforce the theft. Kushner did what it took to stall Trump long enough to destroy his efforts that would have worked to prevent this.

When they succeed, America will see a genocide un-parralleled in world history, that is PRECICELY WHAT DEAGLE HAS INDICATED FOR YEARS and Kamala will sell it with a smile. The only thing stopping the genocide is gun owners, many of which are convinced Corona is real, and will let that ruse be used as a pretext for their elimination.

I’ll say this: Kamala Harris is one of those people who is so comfortable in her evil that she could smile from the center of her soul while burning a busload of children, and sell that smile on a fashion magazine cover where she looked like an angel.

At least with Pelosi you can see through the smile to the rot underneath, that’s not possible with Kamala, she’s downright dangerous. If the people who get put in charge of the election manage to cheat her in, will Americans be stupid enough to accept that smile? I’d say a large number would, as she commits an epic genocide and sells it to the leftist and idiots as some sort of angelic work. She’s a real threat, do not write her off.

She’d be worse than Pelosi. Pelosi knows she’s evil. Kamala on the other hand probably has no compass at all. Granted, Kamala cannot be president but in this subverted system that probably won’t make a difference.

MARK MY WORD: If Kamala is cheated in, you, your family, and every last person you know who is not brainwashed enough to burn downtown to the ground in the name of “fairness” is going to be murdered in cold blood. Kamala absolutely will set up Ukraine style famines, if she somehow gets control of America, it is game over.

Even if I don’t post a whole lot today, it does not mean I am not working to try to save the future. I am, this is not a day off, I am worried. Kamala’s smile is the biggest threat America has ever faced, all the normal triggers for signalling “demon” on her are disabled, people are not going to be prepared for this.

Here is how the election is going to go. No insider tips, think about it –

The media will go on a frenzy about how the public loves Kamala Harris. Then, tens of millions of fake votes via fake Chinese printed drivers licenses will be used to steal the electon. This time they are playing it safe and stating ahead of time the results will probably not be in on election night. This is to buy them time in case, despite all the rigging, Trump still takes it. They need time to destroy ballots or, HERE IS THE BIG ONE:

They know damn well that so many people are going to vote for Trump that when they add their stolen ballots to the mix, they are going to have more votes than possible voters by an enormous margin. They will then need days to sit down and destroy enough votes for Trump so that their fake votes to beat him don’t introduce so many votes it is not possible. They’ll probably destroy upwards of 50 million votes. – they will have to sort out a huge mess – so they already stated they won’t have the results on election night.

Kamala and Biden get in. They slip biden a heart stopper early on, and Kamala is not a natural born citizen. That means that with Biden gone, Pelosi will become president after she steals her own election. WE HAVE TO KEEP ALL EYES ON NANCY’S ELECTION RIGGING OR SHE’S GOING TO SNEAK INTO BEING PRESIDENT VIA MURDER AND DISQUALIFICATION OF KAMALA. The only way to stop this is to make damn good and sure Pelosi does not get in by heavily scrutinizing her vote fraud, I don’t believe for a minute she has actually won an election for at least 16 years. Stopping her from yet another theft will be our only hope.”

Bill Gates: Trump is a Vaccine Skeptic – Microsoft founder slams president over concerns about vaccinations – by Jay Greenberg – https://neonnettle.com/news/12301-bill-gates-trump-is-a-vaccine-skeptic – “Asked by interviewer Steven Levy when he anticipated that things would get back to normal, Gates responded: ‘sometime by the end of 2021 for the rich countries and by the end of 2022 for the world at large.’.. ‘But will it be the normal we knew before?’ Levy asked… ‘Well in the sense that you won’t have to worry about dying of [COVID], yes,’ Gates replied… ‘In the sense that at least ten years of progress in forcing people to do things in a digital way will have happened in a two year period.’ ” (emphasis added)

What If Beirut Port Explosion Was Attack?https://southfront.org/what-if-beirut-port-explosion-was-attack/ – “Probably, the most interesting fact is that this version is supported by the United States on the highest level… US President Donald Trump was among first to say that the Beirut explosion may have been a result of the attack. Trump described the incident as a “terrible attack.”.. This stance of the United States contributed to the speculations with both pro-Iranian/Hezbollah and pro-Israeli sources accusing each others of the tragedy. According to the Israeli version of the events, the explosion may have been caused by some incident at a Hezbollah weapon depot that triggered a larger explosion of ammonium nitrate. In own turn, pro-Iranian sources even accused Israel of conducting a missile or sabotage attack that resulted in the August 4 tragedy… If one theoretically accepts this hypothesis as true, it would be interesting to look what players may have been interested in such a scenario.”

Putin and Russia Are Facing a Very Serious Crisis in Belarus – by The Saker – https://www.unz.com/tsaker/putin-and-russia-are-facing-a-very-serious-crisis-in-belarus/ – “It now appears that the Ukrainian secret service SBU (which does nothing without Uncle Sam’s approval) mounted a complex covert operation to try to get Belarus and Russia into a confrontation. The entire operation, including recruitment, purchase of airline tickets, etc was, in fact, run from the Ukraine. This was also the biggest mistake the Ukies did: they did not hide their actions well enough and it took the Russians special services less than 24 hours to figure out the entire plan and leak it to the media (in Russian). The fine details are still being ascertained, but the bottom line is this: the Ukrainians pretended to be a security firm looking for men with proven combat experience, especially those who fought in the Donbass against the Ukronazi forces. Once recruited for some pretty typical guard duties, these men were to be flown to Minsk where they would miss their plane and be left waiting for the next opportunity to leave Belarus. At this point, the SBU seems to have contacted the Belarusian KGB and “warned” them about Russian “mercenaries” sent by Russia to kill Lukashenko or, at least, overthrow him.”

China Faces Food Shortage As Droughts, Flooding, And Pests Ruin Harvest – by Nicole Hao – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/china-faces-food-shortage-droughts-flooding-and-pests-ruin-harvest – “Recent trends in the Chinese market also indicated that there was a food shortage. China’s leading producer and supplier of processed agricultural products, state-run China Agri-Industries Holdings, announced on Aug. 3 that the central government released 3.6 million metric tons of state-reserved rice to the market recently, which were harvested from 2014 to 2019… China has a national grain reserves system in order to maintain food security, but how much the country actually possesses in reserve has been called into question. Meanwhile, all domestic grain prices have gone up in the first week of August, compared to the same period last year, according to data issued by Orient Securities and Huatai Securities… Soybean prices, in particular, jumped up 37.83 percent, from 3,454 yuan ($484.85) per metric ton in Aug. 2019 to 4,761 yuan ($682.1) per metric ton in Aug. 2020. The Chinese regime also recently made record purchases of U.S. agricultural goods. On July 29, China purchased its biggest-ever order of U.S. corn, 1.937 million metric tons, which will be delivered during the 2020-21 marketing year that begins on Sept. 1, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)… Orders in July also broke previous records.”

Sweden’s Success Is Kryptonite For Lockdown And Mask Advocates – by Jordan Schachtel – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/swedens-success-kryptonite-lockdown-and-mask-advocates – “It doesn’t take a math whiz to come to the conclusion that the epidemic appears to have been wrapped up in Sweden for months. It’s unclear whether this is a result of having achieved the herd immunity threshold, or if the seasonality of the virus is providing indefinite relief. But it’s become absolutely clear that Sweden’s long term pandemic strategy is working.”

Global Lockdowns Set To Plunge 100 Million Into Extreme Poverty – by Paul Joseph Watson – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/global-lockdowns-set-plunge-100-million-extreme-poverty – “…a new report by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting…. The report appears to pin the blame on COVID-19 itself for the economic impact, yet the actual culprit is discovered to be the “restrictions” put in place by governments in response to the pandemic… From the report; ‘With the virus and its restrictions, up to 100 million more people globally could fall into the bitter existence of living on just $1.90 a day, according to the World Bank. That’s “well below any reasonable conception of a life with dignity,” the United Nations special rapporteur on extreme poverty wrote this year. And it comes on top of the 736 million people already there, half of them in just five countries: Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, Congo and Bangladesh.’.. The report notes that the impact of the lockdown on the poor in countries like India was “so abrupt and punishing” that their Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, begged for forgiveness.”

Fact-Checking Fauci – by Phillip Magness – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/fact-checking-fauci – “What then are we to make of the recent case surges in the southern US and on the west coast? Most likely, they reflect the regional nature of the virus’s spread as it migrates into population centers than largely escaped the first wave in March and April… The threat of further spread remains a public health concern, particularly as it pertains to vulnerable populations such as nursing homes. But its pattern has little if anything to do with the lockdown orders – an ineffectual approach to mitigating the virus, but also one with severe social and economic harmsUnfortunately, the pro-lockdown position favored by Fauci and several US media outlets has become a matter of ideological commitment. Whether they are doing so to rationalize the costs we have already incurred from this disastrous approach or to further politicize the pandemic response for a variety of electoral and partisan purposes, they have embraced a pro-lockdown stance that is unchained from any evidence or clear data… It should not be surprising that their accompanying narrative to justify that stance is similarly detached from reality.”

Luongo: Trump Won Re-Election This Weekend – by Tom Luongo – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/luongo-trump-won-re-election-weekend – “We haven’t even reached the DNC convention in Milwaukee and it looks to me like this election season is over… I know the polls keep trying to convince me that Joe Biden, most likely suffering from dementia, is leading President Trump but I just don’t buy it… And neither do the Democrats… Because if they did they wouldn’t be so desperate to push through unlimited mail-in voting as their political hill to die on… And die on it they have… Speaker Nancy Pelosi held up a new round of stimulus legislation over this issue. The massive gap between the GOP and DNC proposals highlight only part of the political divide between the two sides (see graphic, H/T Zerohedge).”

Our Beautifully Democratic Wars – by Philip Roddis – https://fort-russ.com/2020/08/our-beautifully-democratic-wars/ – “This week, on the seventy-fifth anniversary of America’s militarily unnecessary use of the atom bomb at Hiroshima, John Pilger wrote an excellent piece on the horrors of that day and its long bleak aftermath, linking them to the insanity of the drive currently underway for war on China… Our passive consent is once more being manufactured for another Empire Strike. Vilification of China in mainstream Western media, right wing and ‘liberal’ alike, is the new normal. Even the de rigeur demonising of Putin now takes second place to evidence-lite tales“… intelligence sources say … it is believed that …” – of dastardly doings by the Yellow Man in Beijing… (Though of course, Moscow – knowing its turn would come next – could hardly sit idly by as full scale war was waged on China.)”

If Bill Gates Was President… (55 min) – James Corbett interviewed by Spiro Skouras

Invasion of the New Normals – by CJ Hopkins – https://fort-russ.com/2020/08/invasion-of-the-new-normals/ – “You know the people I’m talking about. Some of them are probably your friends and family, people you have known for years, and who had always seemed completely rational, but who are now convinced that we need to radically alter the fabric of human society to protect ourselves from a virus that causes mild to moderate flu-like symptoms (or absolutely no symptoms at all) in over 95% of those infected, and that over 99.6% survive, which, it goes without saying, is totally insane… I’ve been calling them “corona-totalitarians,” but I’m going to call them the “New Normals” from now on, as that more accurately evokes the pathologized-totalitarian ideology they are systematically spreading. At this point, I think it is important to do that, because, clearly, their ideological program has nothing to do with any actual virus, or any other actual public health threat… As is glaringly obvious to anyone whose mind has not been taken over yet, the “apocalyptic coronavirus pandemic” was always just a Trojan horse, a means of introducing the “New Normal,” which they’ve been doing since the very beginning.”

Escobar: Who Profits From The Beirut Blast? – by Pepe Escobar – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-who-profits-beirut-blast – “Once again, Israel is the proverbial elephant in a room now widely depicted by Western corporate media as “Lebanon’s Chernobyl.”.. A scenario like the Beirut catastrophe has been linked to Israeli plans since February 2016… Israel did admit that Hangar 12 was not a Hezbollah weapons storage unit. Yet, crucially, on the same day of the Beirut blast, and following a series of suspicious explosions in Iran and high tension in the Syria-Israeli border, Prime Minister Netanyahu tweeted , in the present tense: ‘We hit a cell and now we hit the dispatchers. We will do what is necessary in order to defend ourselves. I suggest to all of them, including Hezbollah, to consider this.’.. That ties in with the intent, openly proclaimed late last week, to bomb Lebanese infrastructure if Hezbollah harms Israeli Defense Forces soldiers or Israeli civilians… A headline – ‘Beirut Blast Shockwaves Will Be Felt by Hezbollah for a Long Time’ – confirms that the only thing that matters for Tel Aviv is to profit from the tragedy to demonize Hezbollah, and by association, Iran. That ties in with the US Congress “Countering Hezbollah in Lebanon’s Military Act of 2019” {S.1886}, which all but orders Beirut to expel Hezbollah from Lebanon… And yet Israel has been strangely subdued.”

Statements to the Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors, 5/29 & 6/2/2020

Public communication to the Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors at the Special Meeting, May 29, 2020

Here’s text from the 2nd paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, the foundation of the Organic Law of the United States of America:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

The unalienable, natural rights spoken of above are reserved to us under the Ninth Amendment. The requirement that the governments of both the United States of America, and the several states uphold their duty to secure these rights cannot be, and is not suspended by any executive declaration of a “state of emergency.” The Supreme Court ruled in 1953 that Truman could not even take control of the U.S. Steel Industry in the middle of a war.

The duty of this Board to secure our rights, including our freedom of movement and rights to livelihood, not to mention control of our personal medical decisions, is well-settled and absolute, as reflected in the oath of office that you took upon taking office, which says, in part:

“I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter and during such time as I hold the office of Supervisor.”

“Gavin Newsom’s 4-Step Plan for Reopening California” is not only a unilateral declaration by an executive that does not have any power to suspend our unalienable rights, but doesn’t have the legislative authority it would need to have any impact on the population of California. While researching this amazing plan, I could not find a single instance of any commercial media even vaguely inquiring whether there might be any question about the Plan’s lawfulness.

We’ve now apparently entered into an unprecedented suspension of long-recognized Social Polity, which is affecting not only Santa Cruz, or California, or the U.S. itself, but most of the nations of our world. In enabling this, gentlemen, you have clearly violated your oaths of office and your duties to your constituents. How you have avoided violation of you own consciences is, quite frankly, beyond me.

It’s time to do the right thing, and begin the work of restoring the social order that you’ve damaged so severely.

Public Communication to Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors, June 2, 2020 

In this room, last Friday, County Officials maintained a unified front saying that they’re basing their actions against the rights, livelihoods, and mental health of the people Santa Cruz on what you called “science.” But, despite the fact that many of the comments to you in these meetings have pointed you to the real scientific research which has flooded the internet, which contradicts the County’s official story on “the pandemic,” you seem unable to look at anything that contradicts the narrative you cling to and proves that your actions harming the people you purport to represent do not follow common sense and are, in fact, unscientific.

You say that “the pandemic” is making you violate our lives. But the truth is that this narrative you’re receiving from unnamed sources that you clearly obey, is leading you to do this violation of us. Your excuses for what you’re doing are empty and fraudulent.

You are complicit in conducting deliberate psychological warfare against us. You want us to believe that suddenly all of the people of the world are no longer responsible for our own lives and health, but are now merely quivering protoplasm that is unable to maintain its own health, and is a constant pernicious threat to what you call “public health.” You claim the authority to control our lives to mitigate this threat, a threat which will never again go away.

Rather than basing our decisions on the spiritually informed understanding that everything we experience in our lives has an important purpose, and that we, as free beings, have the agency to meet any challenge and live in harmony with our families, friends and neighbors, we’re now to accept that random outside forces will be attacking us from now on, and that we need government, that is, you, to arrogate to yourselves, the power to defend us, at any cost to our lives. You want us to see anyone who does not accept your edicts based on this assumed authority, as our enemies and potential threats to our very lives.

In short, you want to remove our agency to live our lives as free women and men. You have shown that you’re willing to use the power of the state you claim to represent to force us to suppress our understanding, impulses, and intuition, and to cower in fear. This despite the fact that we see that your edicts and agenda are based on empty lies. We must ignore what we see and obey. Most importantly, we must remain silent in the face of this crazy-making aggression.

US President Donald Trump Authorizes Sanctions Against Members Of ICChttps://southfront.org/us-president-donald-trump-authorizes-sanctions-against-members-of-icc/ – “The White House authorized economic sanctions against members of the International Criminal Court on Thursday 11 May over what officials say are politically motivated investigations into alleged war crimes committed by U.S. troops in Afghanistan… International Criminal Court officials directly engaged in any effort to investigate or prosecute American military personnel will also be barred from entering the US, the White House press secretary said in a statement. President Donald Trump signed an executive order on the matter this week, calling the threat the international court poses to US personnel ‘a national emergency’… This blatant US threat against the family members of International Criminal Court prosecutors is part of a longer historical pattern of Washington attacking multilateral institutions… At the beginning of the George W. Bush administration’s so-called war on terror, in 2002, the US Congress passed a bill called the American Service-Members’ Protection Act — more commonly known as the “Hague Invasion Act.”.. This unprecedented piece of legislation declares that the US government unilaterally grants itself the right to militarily invade the Hague if a citizen of the United States or any allied country is prosecuted by the court.”

MORGAN STANLEY TOP ECONOMIST PREDICTS DOLLAR CRASH IN 2021. WILL AMERICA LEARN T-H-I-S LESSON? – by Ivan Danilov – http://www.newsilkstrategies.com/economics-and-finance/morgan-stanley-top-economist-predicts-dollar-crash-in-2021-will-america-learn-this-lesson – “According to him, when the initial global shock passes and the world realizes the state of the American economy, in 2021 the dollar will depreciate to 35% against a basket of currencies of countries in which the United States conduct international trade, and, apparently, this is far from the limit of a possible devaluation. Protectionism by the Donald Trump administration and the deterioration of the US international image (and Dr. Roach recalls that “international leadership” is an element supporting the dollar’s ​​status) will make the situation worse, ing the main problem unresolved: Americans really want to spend a lot (and the list of those wishing to spend a lot of money includes primarily the US government), but they have forgotten how to save money and basically do not want to re-learn how to do it. [Actually, it is not a matter of not wanting to learn. The US government is locked into the spending habit by politics. Lobbies, including the arms makers and the Israel lobby, in tandem with a culture of paranoia toward Russia and China (perpetually accused of “aggression”) among the grassroots, and Evangelicals adhering to the cult of Zionism, leave no alternative to government overspending.]..  The warning from the former chief economist of Morgan Stanley, is particularly striking against the backdrop of news that the US Federal Reserve does not see a quick economic recovery after the coronavirus, and also expects dollar interest rates to be around zero for about two years.”

Sen. Rand Paul Introduces the ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ Act To End No-Knock Police Raids – by Rand Paul – https://www.activistpost.com/2020/06/sen-rand-paul-introduces-the-justice-for-breonna-taylor-act-to-end-no-knock-police-raids.html – “The bill is named in memory and honor of Breonna Taylor, a Louisville resident and EMT who was killed during a police raid on her home in March 2020, which was conducted under the authority of a no-knock warrant… ‘After talking with Breonna Taylor’s family, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s long past time to get rid of no-knock warrants. This bill will effectively end no-knock raids in the United States,’ said Sen. Paul… Earlier this week, Senator Paul held a call with Breonna Taylor’s aunt, Bianca Austin, Game Changers Executive Director Christopher 2X, and others fighting for criminal justice reform, where he reiterated his long-standing commitment to ensuring a just and fair system that respects all Americans’ rights, including the need to end no-knock warrants.”

Downtown Seattle now run by an actual WARLORD who is accused of beating women and forcing them into sex acts – by Mike Adams – https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-06-11-downtown-seattle-now-run-by-an-actual-warlord-beating-women.html – “… clueless Democrats celebrate warlord rule as new UTOPIAAfter left-wing terrorists seized six city blocks of downtown Seattle, declaring it an “autonomous zone” that defies all the laws of Washington State and the United States of America, the power vacuum didn’t last very long. Now, an actual warlord has risen to power there — since Democrats hate police, remember? — and according to online comments, he’s, ‘a man who beats women, forces them into sex work and punishes them if they do not obey.’.. As BigLeaguePolitics reports: ‘A Seattle rap artist appears to be establishing his authority as the de facto “warlord” of a self-styled leftist state in the city’s downtown. Reports from the scene of the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone indicate that Raz Simone, a Seattle rapper, has increasingly staked himself out as something of an authority figure within the jurisdiction. Witnesses describe Simone as asserting his authority over graffiti artists that attempted to paint over existing graffiti, threatening to shoot the street artists if they failed to obey his commands regarding new graffiti.’ “

United States Sanctions International Criminal Court Officialshttps://www.telesurenglish.net/news/United-States-Sanctions-International-Criminal-Court-Officials-20200611-0007.html – “The U.S. President Donald Trump Thursday  authorized new economic sanctions and visa restrictions against the International Criminal Court (ICC) officials who are investigating the behavior of U.S. troops… ‘The International Criminal Court’s actions are an attack on the rights of the U.S. people and threaten to infringe upon our national sovereignty,’ White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said through a statement… Through an executive order, Trump also declared a “national emergency” to address the supposed threat this international organization represents against his country.”

According to the Left Party (Die Linke) lawmaker, US behaviour related to Nord Stream 2 could be characterized as an encroachment on German and European sovereignty.”

Country Formerly Known as Spain Decides to Institute a Permanent COVID Dystopia, Flog Itself to Death – Adiós España – from ArmstrongEconomics.com – https://www.anti-empire.com/country-formerly-known-as-spain-decides-to-institute-a-permanent-covid-dystopia-flog-itself-to-death/ So, masks are obligatory in all closed spaces (work, office, schools, transport, shops, etc… even at home when you receive friends/family who are not living with you in the same household – LOL), in cars when there is more than one person inside, and also outside on the streets and parks etc when one cannot maintain at all times a distance of at least 1.5 meters from other people. So, those living in rural areas or in small villages can, I suppose, go out without a mask. Tough luck in the crowded cities. The fine is 100 euro for not wearing a mask… And now the best: these rules are in vigor  UNTIL THERE IS A VACCINE. So, masks (and “social distancing”) forever in Spain… On top of this, all transport companies offering transport between cities and provinces (i.e. buses, trains, planes, ships, etc) will have to get the name and contact of the passengers and give the records to the government when requested. So, it will be impossible to even travel between various parts of the country without the govt knowing exactly where you went, how long, etc. We were infinitely more free in communism in Central Europe than this!”

Hungary bans legal recognition of its transgender citizens – from AP – https://nypost.com/2020/05/20/hungary-bans-legal-recognition-of-its-transgender-citizens/ – “Hungarian lawmakers on Tuesday approved legislation banning the legal recognition of transgender citizens… Amendments to the law on the birth, death and marriage registry, approved mostly by deputies from Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party, will prevent transgender or intersex people from legally changing their gender to match their gender identity… The bill changes the “sex” category in official documents like birth certificates to “sex at birth,” defined as the “biological sex determined by primary sex characteristics and chromosomes.” Once determined, the birth sex category can’t be changed.”

St. Petersburg University Scientists Create New Assembler For Viral Genome Deciphering – by Arthur Evans – https://www.fort-russ.com/2020/06/st-petersburg-university-scientists-create-new-assembler-for-viral-genome-deciphering/ – “It should also be noted that assembling a metagenome from 1,000 genomes is way more difficult than lumping together a single genome sequence. Here you have to deal with 1,000 individual puzzles instead of one: you need to put together a “picture,” whose fragments are mixed with billions of pieces from other puzzles. To solve this problem, three years ago, the same Russian-US team of scientists who created SPAdes, developed the metaSPAdes assembler, which, in turn, became the leading metagenomic assembler. It made the extraction of viral sequences from a huge amount of data much easier, but the metaviralSPAdesassembler of the new generation is able not only to locate fragments of viral genomes, but also to assemble them into a ready-made “puzzle” – the pathogen genome.”

The Sun Never Sets: Why Modi’s Green BRI Doppelganger Is Doomed to Fail – by Matthew Ehret –  https://www.fort-russ.com/2020/06/the-sun-never-sets-why-modis-green-bri-doppelganger-is-doomed-to-fail/ – “A recent case of the latter slavish behaviour can be seen with Modi’s renewed call to counter the spread of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) with a strange doppelganger known as the One Sun, One World, One Grid Plan (OSOWOG). This three-phased global plan was first announced in 2018 and promises to transition the world into a single international green energy grid by 2050 in order to meet the COP-21 demands for mass carbon dioxide reduction. Part of the plan also involves creating a ‘World Solar Bank’ to offset the China-dominated Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank and New Development Bank… The OSOWOG Plan targets a vast region encapsulating two broad zones which basically receive lots of sun light: 1) the Far East of Asia and Middle East and 2) North Africa. In essence, the plan calls for spreading green energy infrastructure across these sun-soaked regions and a generating a new integrated green grid as a way to counterbalance China’s BRI.”

As COVID Vaccines Head into Phase 3 Trials Big Pharma Prepares for Increase in Flu Vaccines for Fall – by Brian Shilhavy – https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/as-covid-vaccines-head-into-phase-3-trials-big-pharma-prepares-for-increase-in-flu-vaccines-for-fall/ – “All three of the shots are based on brand-new technologies, and they’re all reportedly among finalists in the Operation Warp Speed program. Former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb has publicly questioned the picks, pointing out the team’s reliance on new technologies… The government-funded phase 3 studies will enroll about 30,000 people each, testing the vaccines against placebo in places where the virus is circulating, WSJ reports. The aim is to see whether the candidates can protect vaccinated individuals against infection…Aside from the NIH plans, Pfizer could start a phase 3 trial as early as next month, a source told the WSJ. Down the road, the NIH could launch studies of other vaccines, John Mascola, the head of NIAID’s vaccine research center, told the publication. Anthony Fauci, head of the NIAID, said at BIO’s digital conference Tuesday he expects “more than one” vaccine to succeed.’ (Source.).. Given the recent bad publicity Moderna received from the small sample size tested so far (see: COVID Experimental Vaccine Victim Claims “Sickest in His Life” after Being Injected with Experimental Vaccine), one has to wonder if the drug companies will be transparent in releasing the results of these trials, both negative and any positive outcomes… Given the fact that the U.S. taxpayers are picking up the tab on these trials, the companies have a legal and moral obligation to be transparent in the results of these trials.”

Failed State Walking – by Chris Hamilton – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/failed-state-walking – “I love America.  It’s the land of my birth, my education (Go Beav’s), my children’s births, and where I live and will eventually die.  I did spend about five years living in Europe and Asia and loved it…but my home is and will be the vast expanse of the Western US… So, when I’m critical of the US, it’s not because I want it to fail or fall into chaos…quite the opposite.  I believe that a patriot and citizens role is to critically analyze and constructively push forward.  And this means critiquing the direction of its politics, economy, society, and the state of its soul… So, when I show the following charts…it is in the spirit of constructively questioning what we are doing…and where this is leading us?  What present and imminent future are we fostering for our children and young adults?”

The Fed’s Monetary “Animal House” – by Michael Leboqitz and Jack Scott – https://www.zerohedge.com/health/feds-monetary-animal-house – “Their economic euphemisms and overly optimistic expectations remind us of a Dylan Grice quote “Linguistic precision yields cognitive precision.”  Or, put a little differently, linguistic imprecision yields stupidity… In this piece we explore monetary policy and the role it plays in economic growth… Strong Economic Footing: ‘We entered this turbulent period on a strong economic footing, and that should help support the recovery. In the meantime, we are using our tools to help build a bridge from the solid economic foundation on which we entered this crisis to a position of regained economic strength on the other side.’ –Jerome Powell 4/9/2020… To paraphrase Bluto, ‘eleven years of economic recovery down the drain.’ ”

Gold Gains As Fed QE Commitment Crashes Dollar – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/gold-gains-fed-qe-commitment-crashes-dollar – In what seems to amount to implicit debt monetization, The Fed’s commitment to buying $80 billion a month of Treasuries appears to have awakened some further anxiety over the future of fiat… Gold is surging, the dollar is down…”

The group seems to always be placed close to those in the higher ranks of Antifa and anti-government protesters who want to defund the police.”

Black Lives Matter Demands Boston Spends $15M Taxpayer Money on Illegal Aliens –  by Jay Greenberg – https://neonnettle.com/news/11599-black-lives-matter-demands-boston-spends-15m-taxpayer-money-on-illegal-aliens – “Massachusetts chapter of the far-left group, BLM Boston, is pressing city officials to hand over $15 million in American tax dollars for people who live in the country illegally… The group is calling for the money to be spent on rolling out the red carpet for illegal aliens by providing them with summer jobs… BLM posted a list of demands for police money to be diverted to… Every year, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are added to the U.S. population in addition to about 1.2 million legal immigrants who permanently resettle in the country and another more than one million foreign visa workers who arrive to take American jobs, according to Breitbart… The results have stifled upward mobility in wages and employment for, specifically, black Americans.”

Biothreat from the US on the Rise – by Vladimir Platov – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2020/06/09/neo-biothreat-from-the-us-on-the-rise/ – “The United States has been increasing its sphere of influence in the bio defense sector by, first and foremost, expanding its network of partner biolabs and conducting more experiments of interest to the Pentagon. As a result, the aforementioned countries are losing their ability to function independently in this particular field. Fulfilling its objectives could allow the United States to subsequently use these biolabs for military purposes; to ensure US servicemen are protected if they are deployed in the regions where the laboratories are located, and to conduct in-depth research into pathogens that can affect ethnic groups in different ways… Recently, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated that Washington’s rejection of the protocol containing verification measures to strengthen the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction was a cause for concern. “Tensions around the issue have escalated and Washington’s unwillingness to ensure the transparency of its military biological activities in various parts of the world raises questions about what is really going on there and what the actual goals are,” the official pointed out.

Democrats’ Calls to Defund the Police Are a Losing Bet at the Polls – by Charles Fain Lehman – https://freebeacon.com/democrats/democrats-calls-to-defund-the-police-are-a-losing-bet-at-the-polls/ – “While the proposal is popular among the party’s progressive activist wing and on Twitter, it faces a hard wall of resistance among the wider public. A recent YouGov poll showed that fewer than 20 percent of Americans of all parties supported any cutting of police funding—a finding consistent with decades of polling… Police defunding or abolition has long been a key idea of the radical left, with advocates arguing that the use of state force should be replaced with more equitable redistribution and investment, to target “root causes” of crime rather than responding to it after the fact. That view appears to have risen to the upper echelons of the Democratic power structure—without, however, growing notably more popular among voters… National leadership, meanwhile, has sought to either distance itself from defunding—as in the case of presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden—or define the idea away as simply shuffling funding, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) did Monday. Those moves reflect a lack of consensus between leadership and the base, and within the progressive activist coalition itself, as to what defunding actually entails.”

AG Barr Checkmates Rep. Ilhan Omar: “If You Pull Back Police From These Communities There’ll Be Much More Harm Done” – by Erin Flockhart https://newspushed.com/ag-barr-checkmates-rep-ilhan-omar-if-you-pull-back-police-from-these-communities-therell-be-much-more-harm-done/“The police chiefs, the rank-and-file officers understand the need for change and there has been great change,” AG Barr stated in the interview with Bret Baier… ‘I think defunding the police, holding the entire police structure responsible for the actions of certain officers is wrong and I think it is dangerous to demonize the police,’ he continued… There is no question it is an issue, and it has to be dealt with, but in terms of sheer numbers, is it these police officers who are oppressing African American communities?’ AG Bill Barr said on Monday… ‘There are a lot more damage, a lot more killing, a lot more fear engendered on the streets from criminal elements… In Chicago, for example, in one weekend, 60 to 70 people shot… If you pull back the police from these communities there will be more harm done in these communities,’ Barr added.”

In a Nutshell: UK Government allies with psychopharmacy front groups – by Steve Cook – https://www.thelibertybeacon.com/in-a-nutshell-uk-government-allies-with-psychopharmacy-front-groups/ – “Aided and abetted by accomplices in the media and political establishment, the current creation of widespread unwarranted terror over the Coronavirus, media hysteria and the demoralisation of healthy, productive people has all the hallmarks of a psychological warfare operation straight out of the Tavistock psychological warfare playbook… hen pushed by psychiatric front groups such as WHO and WFMH, “mental health concerns” lead inexorably to more drugging of children and adults “for their own good”… The scares about an epidemic makes billions for the psychopharmacy through the sale of vaccines… The health problems caused by improperly tested vaccines booby-trapped with toxins such as aluminium, mercury and formaldehyde and the need to treat these problems with more drugs and medications make further billions for the psychopharmacy… “Sick and cowed” is the ideal condition for the human race in so far as this suits the money-making and/or totalitarian goals of the psychopharmacy… Boris Johnson at the recent GAVI summit committed UK citizens’ taxpayer millions to funding GAVI, in addition to the taxpayer billions already donated to WHO… Boris Johnson has thus declared himself an ally of or proxy for these psychiatric front groups.”

The “Corona Hoax”, The Proliferation of Racial Riots. Towards a Military Lockdown? – by Peter Koenig – https://www.globalresearch.ca/corona-racial-riots-proliferation-agenda/5714923 – “The “leak“– this time from the German Ministry of the Interior – shows a “secret” 93-page document, admitting basically how badly Germany reacted to the corona hoax – no, the paper doesn’t call it a ”hoax”, but you can taste it between the lines. In essence it says the economic and social collateral damage is much, but much larger than the impact of COVID-19… Back to the German Interior Minister, Mr. Horst Seehofer. His study team of experts finds that the Covid disease was of lesser importance than for example the flu of the 2017 / 2018 season. The study also looked at death statistics and found that the overall death rate in Germany from all causes is comparable to that of previous years and lower than that of the last big flu 2017/2018 season, which went virtually unnoticed. There are no extra deaths, as the German statistics and covid-accounting would indicate with the official 8,522 death toll as of 2 June 2020.This would be a significant spike as compared to previous years – which however, isn’t reflected in the statistics… In essence the study concluded – politely – Covid-19 was a huge False Alarm. When the Minister’s spokesperson was confronted by journalists about the leaked paper, he said something to the effect – we are not discussing anything with conspiracy theorists. Total denial. – Why?.. The team of scientists that elaborated the report for the Interior Ministry (Bundesministerium des Innern – BMI), was flabbergasted, when the Ministry distanced itself from their report. The research team issued a Press Release, triggered by the leaked document – even though it, the BMI, signed off on the scientists’ report. See this (from RT Deutsch [Germany], in German).” (emphases added)

From the Maintaining-The-Narrative Desk: Exclusive investigation on the coronavirus pandemic: Where was Congress? – by Bob Cusack and Rachel Bucchino – https://thehill.com/homenews/coronavirus-report/501585-exclusive-investigation-on-the-coronavirus-pandemic-where-was-congress – “In the next four-and-half months, more than 110,000 people in the United States would lose their lives to the virus, and the economy would be closed down — shutting businesses and forcing millions into unemployment. The pandemic, not impeachment, is certain to be the fundamental issue to voters as they go to the polls this fall… This historic crisis has led to intense scrutiny of the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic focused on the executive branch’s sluggish realization of how severely the global pandemic would hit the country… The Hill has examined hundreds of statements and hours of congressional testimony to highlight which legislators were the first to raise red flags that the coronavirus presented an imminent danger to the United States.” – Comment: So glad real journalists are on the case…

From the State-Propaganda-Beat-Continues Desk: Shutdowns prevented 60 million coronavirus infections in the U.S., study finds – by Joel Achenbach – https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/06/08/shutdowns-prevented-60-million-coronavirus-infections-us-study-finds/ – “A separate study from epidemiologists at Imperial College London estimated the shutdowns saved about 3.1 million lives in 11 European countries, including 500,000 in the United Kingdom, and dropped infection rates by an average of 82 percent, sufficient to drive the contagion well below epidemic levels… The two reports, published Monday in the journal Nature, provide fresh evidence that aggressive and unprecedented shutdowns, which caused massive economic disruptions and job losses, were necessary to halt the exponential spread of the novel coronavirus.” – Comment: Sure hope this was “peer-reviewed”…
