The HIGHWIRE 5/13/21, Del Bigtree promotes likely Weaponized Virus propaganda by Dr. Richard Fleming(50 min) –I think the whole “The Virus is Man Made” is a deliberate psyop. I agree with the information from Dr.’s Kaufman, Cowan and Lanka suggesting that there is no proof of the existence of infectious viruses. Despite Del Bigtree’s sincere desire to help us end the tyranny of the Pandemic agenda, I think he’s fallen into promoting weaponized ideas that keep us from seeing what we’re truly facing now.
The same globalist flim-flam pushing the idea of the Very Devastating Weaponized Virus as above, by Robert Fleming on The HIGHWIRE, is the object of the entire last segment of theMay 14 UK Column News(starting at about 42 minutes, 30 seconds). Kudos to Mike Robinson and Patrick Henningsen for their courage in their straightforward observations. (22 min) – https://www.ukcolumn.org/ukcolumn-news/uk-column-news-14th-may-2021
UK Gov. document reveals disgusting tactics used to coerce Brits into having experimental COVID-19 Vaccine – https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/05/15/uk-gov-document-reveals-disgusting-tactics-used-to-coerce-brits-into-having-experimental-covid-vaccine/– “The document was produced by a UK council’s ‘Behaviour Change Unit’ and was published on ‘The Behavioural Science and Public Health Network’. It is titled – ‘COVID-19 Vaccination: Reducing vaccine hesitancy – Review & Recommendations’… People are quite right to be hesitant of an experimental vaccine, that’s been authorised for emergency use less than twelve months after the emergence of a new disease it is supposed to protect against. There’s also nothing wrong with attempting to reduce that hesitancy, as long as people are given the actual facts and are able to then give properly informed consent… But that isn’t what this document is about at all, instead it describes the best methods to manipulate and coerce the public into having one of the experimental Covid “vaccines” via psychological warfare… The document describes how Brits can be easily manipulated into taking the COVID-19 vaccine if the physical and social environment around them supports them to do so, for example making sure “receiving the vaccination is seen as the right thing to do by the majority of people in their peer group” and making sure they are made aware of this.”
120 Retired Generals, Military Officers Sign Letter Warning Of Conflict Between Marxism And “Constitutional Freedom” – by Jack Phillips – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/120-retired-generals-military-officers-sign-letter-warning-conflict-between-marxism-and – “More than 120 retired generals, admirals, and military officers signed a letter that warned that the United States is embroiled in an existential fight and called on “all citizens” to get involved in local and state politics… “We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty,” stated the letter (pdf), which was signed by 124 former generals and admirals, released by “Flag Officers 4 America.”.. The letter also posited that opposition to proposed bills and laws that would strengthen election initiatives has troublesome implications… ‘Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc. Today, many are calling such commonsense controls ‘racist’ in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections,’ the letter added… According to the Flag Officers 4 America website, it is a group of former military leaders who ‘pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,’ who are ‘domestic’ and ‘foreign’.”
57 Top Scientists And Doctors Release Shocking Study On COVID Vaccines And Demand Immediate Stop to ALL Vaccinations – https://en-volve.com/2021/05/08/57-top-scientists-and-doctors-release-shocking-study-on-covid-vaccines-and-demand-immediate-stop-to-all-vaccinations/ – “Abstract: Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, the race for testing new platforms designed to confer immunity against SARS-CoV-2, has been rampant and unprecedented, leading to emergency authorization of various vaccines. Despite progress on early multidrug therapy for COVID-19 patients, the current mandate is to immunize the world population as quickly as possible. The lack of thorough testing in animals prior to clinical trials, and authorization based on safety data generated during trials that lasted less than 3.5 months, raise questions regarding the safety of these vaccines. The recently identified role of SARS-CoV-2 glycoprotein Spike for inducing endothelial damage characteristic of COVID-19, even in absence of infection, is extremely relevant given that most of the authorized vaccines induce the production of Spike glycoprotein in the recipients. Given the high rate of occurrence of adverse effects, and the wide range of types of adverse effects that have been reported to date, as well as the potential for vaccine-driven disease enhancement, Th2-immunopathology, autoimmunity, and immune evasion, there is a need for a better understanding of the benefits and risks of mass vaccination, particularly in the groups that were excluded in the clinical trials. Despite calls for caution, the risks of SARS-CoV-2 vaccination have been minimized or ignored by health organizations and government authorities.”
Amazing Polly –This Isn’t About A Virus(52 min)
Tucker Carlson: The truth about demographic change and why Democrats want it – https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-immigration-demographic-change-democrats-elections – “Last week, we said something on television that the usual chorus of hyperaggressive liars is now pretending was somehow highly controversial. Ordinarily, we’d ignore all of this. Once you’ve been denounced as a White supremacist for quoting Martin Luther King Jr., you realize such criticism is all just all another form of social control. Honestly, who cares what they think?.. But in this one case, we thought it might be worth pausing to restate the original point, both because it was true and worth saying, and also because America badly needs a national conversation about it… On Thursday, our friend Mark Steyn guest-hosted the 7 p.m. hour on Fox. He did a segment on how federal authorities are allowing illegal aliens to fly without ID — something that, in case you haven’t noticed, you are not permitted to do. ‘Now, I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term “replacement,” if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World. But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually.’.. All across the country, we have seen huge changes in election outcomes caused by demographic change. New people move in and they vote differently. As a practical matter, it doesn’t matter what they look like or where they’re from, even. All that matters is that they have different political views. This is every bit as true when the migrants come from Brooklyn as when they come from Oaxaca.”
‘UK Government’ and ‘Corrupt Scientific Advisors’ are to be tried for ‘Crimes against Humanity’ and ‘Genocide’ – https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/05/11/uk-government-and-corrupt-scientific-advisors-are-to-be-tried-for-crimes-against-humanity-and-mass-murder/ ” ‘Request for Investigation’ of the UK Government and its advisers, for genocide, crimes against humanity and breaches of the Nuremberg Code, issued to the International Criminal Court at the Hague, on Tuesday 20th of April 2021… On Tuesday 20th of April 2021 we, the undersigned, issued a 27 -page ‘Request for Investigation’ to the International Criminal Court (ICC) at The Hague, with a view to asking that our allegations of genocide, crimes against humanity and breaches of the Nuremberg Code, by the UK Government and its advisors, be accepted by the ICC and investigated… We believe that we have provided compelling reasons as to why our Government and its advisers are guilty of the above charges. However, at this stage it is important to note that we are not required to provide all the evidence we have (which would run to several hundred pages) and are limited to a maximum of 30 pages, simply to make an outline case as part of our Request… The ICC does not provide a timeline regarding acceptance, nor of course is there any guarantee that they will ultimately accept our ‘Request for Investigation’ due to a variety of reasons, including the fact that they are limited in their capacity to conduct investigations… Updates will be provided as and when more information becomes available… (in a separate case) On the 30th September 2020, Michael (Bernicia) wrote to every MP via email, warning them that if they did not block the Government’s attempt to renew the draconian coronavirus act then he would engage with a top QC and lay charges against them all in a criminal court for crimes against humanity… A week later Michael and his team submitted a 1,200 page bundle of evidence which includes expert witness statements from two professors, three doctors, a dental surgeon, a probate solicitor, a mathematician, a retired nuclear submarine data analyst, an independent data analyst and a former CID fraud detective, who is acting as a trustee of the PUB in bringing this most serious of prosecutions to the criminal court.”
US-Funded Lab Helped Chinese Army’s Bioterrorism Program – by Dr. Joseph Mercola – https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2021/05/05/us-funded-lab-helped-chinese-bioterrorism-program.aspx – “In the featured video, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson investigates the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and reviews the U.S.-China ties with regard to gain-of-function research on coronaviruses… Dr. Anthony Fauci is a prominent figure in this scheme, having funded several research projects where the money was being funneled into the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) via the EcoHealth Alliance, which subcontracted grant work to the WIV… In October 2020, Dr. Peter Breggin published the report,1 “Dr. Fauci’s COVID-19 Treachery,” detailing Fauci’s “chilling ties” to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its military… Breggin is convinced Fauci “has been the major force” behind research activities that enabled the CCP to manufacture lethal SARS coronaviruses, which in turn led to the release — whether accidental or not — of SARS-CoV-2 from the WIV… He claims Fauci has helped the CCP obtain “valuable U.S. patents,” and that he, in collaboration with the CCP and the WHO, initially suppressed the truth about the origins and dangers of the pandemic, thereby enabling the spread of the virus around the world… In the executive summary of the report, Breggin documents 15 questionable activities that Fauci has been engaged in, starting with the fact that he funded dangerous gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses, both by individual Chinese researchers and the WIV in collaboration with American researchers. This research, Breggin says, allowed the CCP and its military to create bioweapons, including SARS-CoV-2.”
08 May ‘Virus warfare’ in China files – by Sharri Markson – https://senatorpaterson.com.au/2021/05/08/virus-warfare-in-china-files/ – “Chinese military scientists discussed the weaponisation of SARS coronaviruses five years before the COVID-19 pandemic, outlining their ideas in a document that predicted a third world war would be fought with biological weapons… The document, written by People’s Liberation Army scientists and senior Chinese public health officials in 2015, was obtained by the US State Department as it conducted an investigation into the origins of COVID-19, The Weekend Australian has confirmed… The paper describes SARS coronaviruses as heralding a ‘new era of genetic weapons” and says they can be “artificially manipulated into an emerging human disease virus, then weaponised and unleashed in a way never seen before’… The Chinese-language paper, titled The Unnatural Origin of SARS and New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons, outlines China’s progress in the research field of biowarfare… Some of China’s senior public health and military figures are listed among the 18 authors of the document, including the former deputy director of China’s Bureau of Epidemic Prevention, Li Feng. Ten of the authors are scientists and weapons experts affiliated with the Air Force Medical University in Xi’an, ranked “very high-risk” for its level of defence research, including its work on medical and psychological sciences, according to the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s Defence Universities Tracker… There is concern about the high-risk nature of the biological research into coronaviruses Wuhan scientists were conducting, particularly involving “Gain of Function” research where virologists create new viruses that are more transmissible and more lethal. Australian Strategic Policy Institute executive director Peter Jennings said under Mr Xi’s increasing emphasis on civil-military fusion, China’s biological research into coronaviruses could be weaponised… ‘There is no clear distinction for research capability because whether it’s used offensively or defensively is not a decision these scientists would take,’ he said… ‘If you are building skills ostensibly to protect your military from a biological attack, you’re at the same time giving your military a capacity to use these weapons offensively. You can’t separate the two’.” – Comment: Both of the above articles are framed from the perspective that “infectious viruses” are a reality. See the work of Dr.s Kaufman, Cowan and Lanka for hard science suggesting this is not the case. IMO, a great deal of effort, on both sides of the Pacific Ocean, has been taken to create the legend that “weaponized viruses” are not only possible, but have been created to enable the “attack on humanity” that is the SARS-coV-2 “pandemic.” The real causes of the “COVID-19 syndrome” are from other sources.
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.
This entire so-called Crisis is proven to have been planned by a corrupt network of influence. There are many excellent researchers who have found the evidence of long-term advance planning by foundations, NGO’s, government agencies, and corporations, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Wellcome Trust, the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Health Organization, the CDC, the Chinese CDC, the Pharma Industry, and elements in both the U.S. and UK governments. This evidence includes multiple staged exercises and detailed plans, including one called EVENT 201 which was held in New York just weeks before the pandemic emerged in Wuhan, China.
This corrupt network of influence is obviously responsible for the eerie coincidence between the measures of control of people that have been implemented not only in various states and localities in the U.S., but in nations all over the world simultaneously, down to the catch phrases such as “social distancing” and “rules” that are used and issued.
These so-called orders that have come from state and local executive and health officials are not only repugnant to our society’s principles of governance, and in direct violation of the people’s unalienable, god-given and natural rights, but are unlawful under our political ethos.
Such orders, even if passed by legislatures, are, under settled Supreme Court rulings, principally Marbury v. Madison, null and void on issuance, having the effect as if they had never been created.
Public officials who create, transmit, and enforce such orders are acting outside both their oaths of office and official capacities, and are acting under color of law. They are therefore personally liable both civilly and criminally.
When an entire social system destroys personal lives and its economy in the name of public health, without any consideration of the morality and collective effects of its actions, it has lost its mandate for existence. You need to end this draconian system of control now, not in stages, or you will face the consequences of your actions.
We are waking up rapidly to what is nothing less than the ongoing creation of an oligarchic tyranny.
We do not consent to any such system of illegitimate control.
Below is an email that I just sent to the apparent Lockdown Partisans of “Democracy for America” at: Charles Chamberlain, Democracy for America <firstname.lastname@example.org> (whose email is below). IMO, this is an example of the kinds of assertive but non-violent actions we can take at this time to begin to stem the tide of neo-fascism spreading over the planet now. — Peace, Bruce
Excuse me, but are you paying attentions here? There is powerful evidence that Fauci is a hireling of Bill Gates (who, BTW, is not our friend, far from it), and is involved in a concerted program both to curtail our inherent freedoms and natural rights, and to force toxic and possibly extremely dangerous vaccines, not only on the population of America, but on the people of the entire world.
Please consider looking at some of the rigorous research and great information coming from alternative journalists such as James Corbett, Del Bigtree, Amazing Polly (on youtube), and Spiro Skouras, among many others, that documents the progression of the Vaccine Agenda and its coincidence to the arising of the political philosophy of Technocracy worldwide.
This cleverly marketed Neo-Fascist agenda threatens not only you and your neighbors, but your children, your partners, your parents, your family, and your beloved community. Wake up and see what’s unfolding before your eyes – Before it’s too late.
On 4/13/2020 4:17 PM, Charles Chamberlain, Democracy for America wrote:
This is really concerning, Bruce.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is a respected infectious disease expert who has spent decades fighting viruses on the frontlines.
That’s why he’s been leading the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak and become an absolutely critical spokesperson getting actual factual information out to the public — even in press conferences often filled with other Trump administration lies.
Not surprisingly, the right-wing media has been working overtime to defend Trump’s inaction and discredit Dr. Fauci when he contradicts Trump’s lies.
It’s frightening. It’s dangerous. But it’s to be expected from Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and the rest of Fox News and the right-wing media.
The problem is Trump listens to them. All of them. And last night, Donald Trump started retweeting their calls for the President to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci himself.
Let’s be really clear: public health experts like Dr. Fauci are exactly who we need to be listening to right now. We have to raise our voices right now to reject any move Trump makes to silence the public health experts working to keep the American people safe.
Sadly, a petition to Trump from you and me isn’t going to stop him, because Trump doesn’t care what we think. But Trump does care what corporate leaders think. He cares what the media thinks. He even cares what some members of Congress think.
The good news is those leaders listen to the public. They care what Americans think even when Trump doesn’t.
Conversation on a Discord chat today resulting from discussion of Neal Adams’ amazing 207 animated video Science: 01 – Conspiracy: Earth is Growing! (10 min) – https://youtu.be/oJfBSc6e7QQ
ScottAlberts – Today at 1:14 PM:
That continents that we have were connected at one point, that is pretty much accepted. So we have a single continent on one side of the world. The other side of the world is impacted by another planet(oid?), blasting whatever was there out into space exposing the mantle. In a vacuum, liquids automatical ball into a sphere. When this happened it ripped this other continent(Pangaea as it is called) into pieces, exposing the magma between them. Most, if not all of the oceans vaporized, cooling the exposed magma( to a point) and eventually raining back down to refill the barren spaces between our present continents. Indeed the crust beneath the oceans are far younger, and much thinner as well. And they do continue to drift and you can see the stretch marks that cover the bottom in the mid Atlantic. But if the separation had occured slowly over time they would str3tch across the entirety of the ocean floor, from continental shelf to continental shelf, but they do.not. Therefore the initial separation happened so quickly that ridges were not able to form. There is no such rift in the Pacific, or any stretch mark, indicating that they were not pulled apart. Subduction on the west coast of the Americas and the east coast of Asia indicates that rather, they are being pushed toward each other.
bruce.reid – Today at 1:59 PM:
@ScottAlberts – OK, I’m very familiar with the Pangea theory. I basically am not moved by anything being “pretty much accepted,” though. There is no forensic evidence for how the continents of a broken-up Pangea wandered over the supposedly enormous ocean bed of a world that was theoretically the same size as present day Earth. Additionally, there is the apparent evidence that when one gradually removes the ocean floors that seem to have spread from the under-ocean rifts in concordance with the age dating of the under-ocean magmas, ALL of the continents of the world nest neatly with each other on a much smaller planet that has no oceans, only inland seas.
I don’t see convincing evidence of the “subduction” that would be required for the continents to wander all over the planet, which would require the disappearance of massive extents of the existing ocean bed. There then would, obviously, be large remaining areas of the ocean beds which date back to the time of the formation of the crust of Pangea, and there are not.
And, there absolutely is a Pacific Rift. Most of it is directly along the edge of the North American Western Continental Shelves in the Northern Hemisphere, and it then moves out into the ocean at the Gulf of California and heads down toward Antarctica. This is even covered in the mind-control institution Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Pacific_Rise – though they of course see this in the context of the supposedly massive subduction required to explain the relatively rapid crustal expansion that the rise of magma at the rift would require for the ocean bed to remain roughly the same size as the expansion continues to occur.
East Pacific Rise – The East Pacific Rise is a mid-oceanic ridge, a divergent tectonic plate boundary located along the floor of the Pacific Ocean. It separates the Pacific Plate to the west from (north to south) the North American Plate, the Rivera Plate, the Cocos Plate, the Nazca Plate, and th… (from Wikipedia)
I don’t agree that there is evidence, based on physical data or indigenous traditions, of a cataclysmic event on the scale you outline above. If something of magnitude had ever happened (and it would have to have been tens of millions of years ago) no human life would have survived, nor any moderately advanced life on the planet. Then also there would have to be vast expanses of the ocean beds all formed at one and the same time, for which there is no evidence.
IMO, the “Subduction of the West Coast of the Americas” is just one more example of proponents of the frozen-in-time “official stories” of propaganda science to pull explanations out of thin air to protect lies instituted in coopted Academia, who have been bought lock-stock-and-barrel by the world of finance capital allied with the global mind-control agenda.
These my considered opinions. Where do you think stars come from? What powers them IF IT ISN’T nuclear fusion, but instead energy emerging from within them from and omnipresent Aether, which explains things more coherently, I think. And if energy is emerging WITHIN the stars, why couldn’t it emerge within planets, which are likely also living organisms. Perhaps Life is very different than the Big Bang – Deteriorating Universe theorists which now have humanity collectively in their grips would have us believe.
BTW, I have personal experience that this Aetheric energy also arises within us from the center of our being.
ScottAlberts – Today @ 2:25 PM:
According to the Sumerians , the “gods” told them that this was what had occured. Humans were not around at that time. The Pacific rift does not operate iin quite the same way as the Atlantic. And the 200,000 year oldish crust at the bottom of the sea, coincides roughly with the Permian/Triassic extinction in which nearly all life on the planet died. Recent studies have shown that we were indeed impacted by a planet or planetoid at some point in the past. I’m just connecting dots my friend. I do not believe in the big bang theory or in a deteriorating universe. But an infinite and eternal one in a continual process of evolution. And that energy that you have felt arising from the core of your being is very real and measurable up to 3 feet outside of your physical being. We are not conscious because we have a body. We have a body because we are conscious. Our planet puts out a tremendous amount of energy. It has a pulse of a sort. It is very much alive and is continuously evolving as all life does.
Bruce-Reid – Today @ 3:09 PM:
@ScottAlberts – I think the Sumarian “gods” were likely the Annunaki – The Sumarian tablets seem to show this. The evidence presented by Michael Tellinger and Credo Mutwa shows that both the mining of gold, and the genetic modification of humanity may have taken place in South Africa circa 200,000 years ago. BTW, there is evidence that advanced humanoids may have lived on Earth millions of years ago. In this cycle, we certainly go back on the order of 2 million years or so. The Annunaki seem to me to have created the controlled, stratified societies that emerged after the cataclysm of around 13,000 years ago in Sumeria, Egypt and the Indus Valley. IMO, the Annunaki may be involved in human affairs to this day, working to enslave humanity. If so, they would hardly be a reliable source of information on our history. The ocean bottom crusts of the world have been dated to tens of millions of years of age – and are younger at the rift zones and older near to the continental shelves. Yes the Earth has been impacted by celestial objects, but nothing even close to the magnitude that would be required to obliterate half of the ocean floors on the opposite side of the world from a single Pangea-type continent. I appreciate that you are working to connect dots. We all are. But how can we do this is we discount vital evidence?
The shape of the new Grand Initiative to remake the global economy (after the collapse of “Capitalism”) to continue the extraction of value and resources from the human population and the Earth emerges. – It is based on tropes of Ecology® and Oppression by “Ruling Elites,” though it comes from the “elite” controllers themselves. I think the series of 6 articles linked below puts it all together. This lets us know what we are immediately up against, and what we need to contend with if we’re to save the legacy of human culture (and the planet) through the next century. –Bruce

Military Intervention and Mercenaries, Inc. (MIAMI) – by Wayne Madsen – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/03/01/military-intervention-and-mercenaries-inc-miami.html – “Some of Latin America’s wealthiest oligarchs have fled, along with their money, to the Miami area. They have been joined, in some cases, by the commanders of genocidal death squads, including Gilberto Jordán of the Guatemalan “Red Berets,” the Kaibiles. Jordán’s military unit specialized in murdering helpless Guatemalan Mayan families, including infants. He found a safe haven in Delray Beach, north of Miami. Although Jordán, a US citizen – thanks to the “good offices” of the CIA – was arrested by US authorities in 2010, he was merely convicted of lying on his US immigration papers and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment… Bolivia’s former Defense Minister, Carlos Sánchez Berzaín, another genocidal murderer of indigenous villagers, lives in a gated community in affluent Pinecrest in Miami-Dade County. He and his fellow Miami exilée, former Bolivian President Gonzalo “Goni” Sánchez de Lozada, were sued in US Court in Fort Lauderdale for $10 million in compensatory claims by family members and survivors of the 2003 “Black October” deaths of 67 indigenous protesters in the village of Sorata. In 2014, a federal judge ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, pursuant to the provisions of the Torture Victim Protection Act… Equally notorious in Miami’s “Little Havana” neighborhood of right-wing Cuban exiles were two terrorists, Orlando Bosch and Luis Posada Carriles, both responsible for the terrorist bombing in October 1976 of Cubana Flight 455, en route from Bridgetown, Barbados to Kingston, Jamaica… It is no surprise that Miami and South Florida, once again, buzzes with activity as Trump’s CIA launches coups in Latin America. While dodgy CIA contractors meet with one another in Miami bars… …Trump regularly rubs shoulders with Latin American oligarch members of his faux-posh Palm Beach, Florida Mar-a-Lago billionaires’ and multi-millionaires’ club. Some of these wealthy members once relied upon some of Latin America’s most notorious mass murderers for security in their native countries.”
Yellow Journalism: Globalist Weapon of Mass Deception – by Anonymous Patriots – https://aim4truth.org/2017/02/19/yellow-journalism-globalist-weapon-of-mass-deception/ – “Where Does News Come From?.. We have all heard the “conspiracy theories” that the entire U. S. media is owned by six companies and those companies are owned by the Rothschild family; however, this is not completely true as we will show you. This “fake news” is actually partially correct, which is the way that yellow journalism delivers propaganda – full of half-truths and sensationalism with bloody red headlines that are eye-catching, but not backed by honest investigative research… It is also said that there are only two news agencies that have a monopoly on U. S. news. This is basically true. The Associated Press and Reuters provide 95% of national and international news to the six major U. S. news agencies, which we call the “Media Cartel.” The Rothschilds used to own Reuters and now owns major holdings in the news networks that comprise the collective that share in the ownership of the Associated Press… We may have also heard that the media cartel (all six major media corporations) are only allowed to “read aloud” the scrubbed-clean news provided by the A. P. and Reuters. This is true, but with one additional truth. All news first goes through the National Security Agency for screening and approval. The NSA wipes clean any news that might “potentially” effect “National Security,” including any policies of the administration. Did you know that Reuters, the AP, and the FCC/NSA New York City offices all share the same fiber optic hub that goes through the NSA’s PRISM screening before Reuters and the AP are “allowed” to see the news?”

Massive Database Leak Gives Us a Window into China’s Digital Surveillance State – by Danny O’Brien – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/03/massive-database-leak-gives-us-a-window-into-chinas-digital-surveillance-state.html – “The prevailing evidence of mass detention centers and newly-erected surveillance systems shows that China has been pouring billions of dollars into physical and digital means of pervasive surveillance in Xinjiang and other regions. But it’s often unclear to what extent these projects operate as real, functional high-tech surveillance, and how much they are primarily intended as a sort of “security theater”: a public display of oppression and control to intimidate and silence dissent… Now, this security leak shows just how extensively China is tracking its Xinjiang residents: how parts of that system work, and what parts don’t. It demonstrates that the surveillance is real, even as it raises questions about the competence of its operators.”
CBS “60 Minutes” Asks If The FDA Ignited The Opioid Crisis. Big Pharma Exec Says Yes. – by B.N.

Ed Thompson: ‘I can’t think of anything more harmful taking place that took place then. It opened the floodgates. It was the decision of no return for the FDA.’.. 60 Minutes also interviewed former FDA commissioner David Kessler. He’s been retained by cities and counties suing Big Pharma for the Opioid Crisis… Dr. David Kessler: ‘There are no studies on the safety or efficacy of opioids for long-term use.’ ”
From the Times of Israel: French city’s rabbi says half of his congregants have left over anti-Semitism – Nissim Sultan of Grenoble says abuse getting worse over last 15 years, with many deciding to emigrate; 20,000 French Jews have moved to Israel since 2014 – https://www.timesofisrael.com/french-citys-rabbi-says-half-of-his-congregants-have-left-over-anti-semitism/ – “French city’s rabbi says half of his congregants have left over anti-Semitism… ‘Our country, and for that matter all of Europe and most Western democracies, seems to be facing a resurgence of anti-Semitism unseen since World War II,’ he added… His comments come after a cemetery in the Alsace region, near Germany, was vandalized with 96 Jewish tombstones daubed with swastikas.

Macron and his government have linked the appearance of swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti on artworks, shopfronts and headstones to far-right and far-left elements within the “yellow vest” protest movement… In recent days, the word “Juden” was spray-painted on the window of a Paris bagel bakery and swastikas were daubed on postbox portraits of late French Holocaust survivor and women’s rights icon Simone Veil… The number of anti-Jewish crimes rose 74 percent last year.”
From the Grounds-For-Speculation-And-Further-Research Desk: Can YouTube Solve Its Serious Climate Science Denial Problem? – by Graham Readfearn – https://www.desmogblog.com/2019/02/24/youtube-video-serious-climate-science-denial-problem – “When I viewed YouTube without signing in, almost all the videos suggested by the algorithm would sit firmly in the climate science denial folder. There’s so much of this material on YouTube that it’s not hard to find once the algorithm opens the door… There’s a Nobel Laureate who apparently “Smashes the Global Warming Hoax” — just don’t mention the 76 other laureates asking for ‘rapid progress towards lowering current and future greenhouse gas emissions.’.. Then there are two other videos, both titled “The Truth About Global Warming,” and both delivering the opposite to what its title claims… Before you know it, you’re in a world of “climate cults,” “global warming hysteria,” and claims of failed predictions and Al Gore getting “slammed.”.. For an unsuspecting viewer, watching just one video can lead you quickly into an alternate universe where facts, physics, and real-world experiences are replaced by conspiracies, cherry-picking, and fossil fuel–backed propaganda.” (emphasis added)
Globalist Plan for Human Control – by Sartre – https://www.shiftfrequency.com/globalist-plan-for-human-control/ – “Recognizing that there is and has been a century’s long shrouded plan to mastermind a worldwide Weltanschauung that puts a diabolical elite mastery over the billions of human beings, which make up the vast hordes of divinely created life on this planet, is a taboo topic in most cultures… The entire system of socially manufactured perception is a plot to keep people in line and docile. Mass societal pressure is dumped on anyone, who dares to put forth a confederacy organism of global rule explanation for understanding political, social and economic affairs. Keeping the enigma program for extending a cruel and deadly supremacy over mankind cannot be kept secret any longer.”
Linked from the above article: The Two Jewish-led Globalist Camps… In Competition For Global Control – by James L. Miller, PhD – http://immigration-globalization.blogspot.com/2011/10/two-globalist-camps-in-competition-for.html – “There are two distinct ideological globalist camps, both led by Jews — each camp competes with the other for global control: 1) THE LIBERAL CAMP; 2) THE NEOCON CAMP (often calling themselves “conservatives” … although they actually aren’t conserving anything… they’re not conserving American jobs, they’re not conserving the demographic/racial makeup of America, they’re not conserving American culture and religion, etc)… First off, it is critical to understand that each ideological camp was created, developed, and fine-tuned by Jewish intellectuals. Without Jewish intellectuals, there wouldn’t be a radical liberal school of thought (Communism, Socialism, Trotskyism, and all their supporting submovements/ideas such as feminism, gay rights, political correctness, etc.). Similarly, without Jewish intellectuals, there wouldn’t be a Neocon school of thought.” – Comment: It is crucial to have an open mind and to weigh all the availble evidence before beginning to imagine one knows what is true regarding “The Jewish Question” (JQ). If you trust “scriptures,” the nature of what happened with the creation of the Jews goes back to ancient Sumer and a man called Abraham, who was chosen for some particular role by a “deity” whose name is never supposed to be pronounced, but is written without vowels in Hebrew as the letters Yod He Vod He (YHVH). The truth of this is inscrutable, but is insisted upon by the secret, hierarchical, and exclusive rabbinic culture that still controls “orthodox” Jewish society. Many analysts assert various theories about occult control of “elite” Jewish organizations. It is claimed that there is an esoteric hierachy behind the ongoing Rabbinic association named the Sanhedrin, which the very dicey Christian “Gospel” says were responsible for the condemnation of the enigmatic Yeshua to “the cross.” – It should be obvious that the vast majority of Jews in the world have never had anything to do with the policies directed by the top levels of Jewish hierarchy. But something about the nature of Jewish Identity, for those who accept it at deep psychological levels, seems to have made it possible for this cohesive “tribal” culture to have penetrated the upper levels of almost every powerful organization on Earth: Governments, Secret Societies, Courts, Corporations (including, importantly, Banks), Media (of course!), Religions, Universities, and so forth. As Lenin is quoted as saying: “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” Many spiritual psychologists have stated that one of the primary drives of the (non-existent) ego is for control. Anyone identified with being a separate self, a powerful psychological addiction driven by the illusion that “I” am a character unshakably associated with “my” physical body, is bound to certain very unskillful obsessions to attain an obviously impossible goal of permanence and primacy of power (to become “godlike”). So, I would argue that the end goal for whatever the hidden power behind the posited Jewish Secret Council actually is, its ultimate goal is for unified command and control of “everything that it surveys,” and that it is doing this using this literally insane identification with “chosenness” because of its psychological power to attain results, or as is often said, “Facts On The Ground.”
The Real Reason Why Globalists Are So Obsessed With Artificial Intelligence – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/03/the-real-reason-why-globalists-are-so-obsessed-with-artificial-intelligence.html – “It is nearly impossible to traverse web news or popular media today without being assaulted by vast amounts of propaganda on Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is perhaps the fad to end all fads as it supposedly encompasses almost every aspect of human existence, from economics and security to philosophy and art. According to mainstream claims, AI can do almost everything and do it better than any human being. And, the things AI can’t do, it WILL be able to do eventually… Whenever the establishment attempts to saturate the media with a particular narrative, it is usually with the intent to manipulate public perception in a way that produces self fulfilling prophecy. In other words, they hope to shape reality by telling a particular lie so often it becomes accepted by the masses over time as fact. They do this with the idea of globalism as inevitable, with the junk science of climate change as “undeniable” and they do it with AI as a technological necessity… The globalists have long held AI as a kind of holy grail in centralization technology. The United Nations has adopted numerous positions and even summits on the issue, including the “AI For Good” summit in Geneva. The UN insinuates that it’s primary interest in AI is in regulation or observation of how it is exploited, but the UN also has clear goals to use AI to its advantage. The use of AI as a means to monitor mass data to better institute “sustainable development” is written clearly in the UN’s agenda. ”
Maduro 1: Abrams 0: But This Match Is Far from Over… – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/maduro-1-abrams-0-but-this-match-is-far-from-over/ – “Outside Venezuela this first confrontation has also been a defeat for the Empire. Not only did most countries worldwide not recognize the AngloZionist puppet, but the level of protest and opposition to what appeared to be the preparations for a possible invasion (or, at least, a military operation of some kind) was remarkably high. While the legacy corporate Ziomedia did what it always does (that is whatever the Empire wants it to do), the Internet and the blogosphere were overwhelmingly opposed to a direct US intervention. This situation also created a great deal of internal political tensions in various Latin American countries whose public opinion remains strongly opposed to any form of US imperial control over Latin America… The main problem is that the Neocons cannot accept defeat and that they are likely to do what they always do, double down and make a bad situation even worse. The head of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, has warned that the US has deployed special forces in Colombia and Puerto Rico in preparation for a possible invasion. Uncharacteristically, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs made intelligence information public, which described in some detail what kind of plans the Empire and its allies had, even before this past week-end’s confrontation.

Venezuela Orders PDVSA Offices Relocate To Moscow; Putin Affirms Support To “Friend” Maduro – https://southfront.org/venezuela-orders-pdvsa-offices-relocate-to-moscow-putin-affirms-support-to-friend-maduro/ – “The Venezuelan vice president said, ‘This is done in line with our plans to expand technical cooperation in the oil production area with Rosneft, with Gazprom. The moment now is the most suitable to do so. We are changing the format of our relations.” And she added, “It’s the perfect time, as we are reshaping our relations.’.. As part of the press briefing, Russian FM Lavrov conveyed President Putin’s words of support and solidarity to his “friend” President Maduro in a further clear sign that Moscow has dedicated itself to helping Venezuela’s state oil company weather the storm of US economic war and sanctions… Lavrov explained in the press conference, ‘Russia will further help the Venezuelan government to solve social and economic problems, which includes lending support via legitimate humanitarian aid.’.. This after what’s been widely acknowledged as failed US-led coup efforts over the past weeks in support of opposition leader Juan Gaido, who has tried to rally support for greater external “pro-democracy” intervention against the Caracas government.”
US-Proclaimed ‘Venezuelan President’ Announces Another Humanitarian Aid Provocation – https://southfront.org/us-proclaimed-venezuelan-president-announces-another-humanitarian-aid-provocation/ – ” ‘We drafted an alternative draft resolution, the aim of which is not to incite political intrigues and regime change but rather to genuinely help the Venezuelan people in efforts to normalize the situation in the country,’ said Russian Ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia… ‘The draft submitted by the US delegation was written for regime change disguised as care for people. We’ve seen all of this already vis a vis Libya, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan,’ he said… Nebenzia also claimed that the Russian draft resolution had not been taken seriously by the council. ‘Yesterday we convened expert-level consultations on our text, we listened to the views of members of the Security Council including the US representative. We heard not a single specific comment on our draft. Western experts said that they would not work on our text and US colleagues immediately tabled their draft for the vote. Where’s diplomacy here? Where’s a quest for compromise?’ he said.”
Vladislav Surkov’s Hugely Important New Article About What Putinism Is – Full Translation – https://russia-insider.com/en/vladislav-surkovs-hugely-important-new-article-about-what-putinism-full-translation/ri26259 – “Surkov is no longer in the limelight, but he occasionally hurls down these rhetorical thunderbolts. What he says is always interesting and sometimes profound, and we think this essay is very much the latter. It argues that the system which has evolved in Russia over the last 18 years is extremely durable, and could well last for centuries, and that it is more honest and works far better than the clown show in the West… Well, judge for yourself. The translation here is brilliant, because it was done by regular contributor Dmitry Orlov, who if you haven’t read, you should. One doesn’t often see translations of this calibre, because the people capable of doing them don’t tend to be translators.”
Here’s why US-North Korea talks will continue to fail – by Darius Shahtahmasebi – https://www.rt.com/op-ed/452698-korea-trump-talks-fail/ – “It pays to remind ourselves that if we are going to hold North Korea to these ridiculous standards, that it has in fact conducted no nuclear or intercontinental ballistic missile tests since 2017. The US, on the other hand, is still assisting Israel in its destruction of Gaza, is still assisting Saudi Arabia in its destruction of Yemen, is still bombing the rest of the Middle East into oblivion and is currently threatening war against Venezuela, Iran, all the while reigniting a new and revamped Cold War with Russia and China, just to name a few… Even as I type, two supposed US allies who do have known and ready nuclear weapons appear to be throwing stones at each other, yet denuclearization seems to be nowhere to be found in media discourse when we examine the history of the ongoing conflict between India and Pakistan.”
Big Pharma to Use Public Schools As Biochemical Mind Control Agents for Students – by Dave Hodges – https://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/big-pharma-to-use-public-schools-as-biochemical-mind-control-agents-for-students/ – “Previously, there was an ongoing battle for the psychological health and welfare of America’s children and eventually all Americans, under the New Freedoms Commission (NFC), had as it is the eventual intent to screen and treat, with mind numbing drug, all Americans for mental illness by using criteria designed to elicit false positives. The relatively new mind control programs have commenced with the intent of compelling the mental health testing of all 52 million school children and the 6.5 million adults who walk through doors of every school in America on any given weekday. Acting under the authority of the NFC, all 50 states are mandated to implement compulsory mental health screening. The screening exams were to be administered in kindergarten, fourth and ninth grade. The screening program required no parental notification and carries the force of law… In April of 2002, by Executive Order, President George W. Bush convened a 22 member panel which sought to identify policies that could be implemented by all levels of government which would promote successful mental health treatment for all children and adults… In July of 2003, the NFC formally recommended that schools were in the best position to commence the screening of all Americans beginning with America’s students and school employees. The NFC implemented their recommendations, in November of 2004, with a $20 million dollar appropriation.” – Comment: The “New Freedoms Commission”: How Orwellian does it get?
IN Senate Bill 266 Gives State/School Parental Power Over Students’ Mental Health from Birth to Age 22 – by Jeannie Georges – http://www.theofficialvipnews.com/google2badecc5bb02684b.html/2019/02/16/9290/ – “The state should never be in control to identify, assess or assist emotional or mental health issues. But, SB 266 is one line after another of state-run objectionable practices… Here are a few: ● There will be routine examinations for mental health; ● The state will assess, measure, track and report everyone’s state of mind; ● Taxpayers will be paying the high cost of prevention and treatment of mental health for all; ● Other entities will be profiting on the collection of every piece of data that can be gleaned; ● The school based mental health services will be integrated into everything – every subject; ● It is experimental; ● It calls for improvement in communication between agencies – meaning the data will be distributed without regard for privacy. (Court orders and warrants won’t be needed.); ● It brings in neuroscience; ● Substance abuse is changed to a mental diagnosis because it is called substance use disorder… How many will be classified with mental or behavioral disorders? Do you know anyone with phone, gaming, or social media addiction? Know anyone who drinks, smokes, visits alternative web sites? How much is too much and how much is a ”use disorder”?.. There is this caveat. A great pupil privacy protection section was part of this bill when it passed through the education committee. Well, except it did not include public schools! It has already been removed from this bill and it is debated whether it could be enforced even if it could be amended back into the bill.” – Comment: This “treatment” is mandatory for all children between birth and age 22. How much could that end up costing? – In dollars, of course.
U.S. Forces Transported 50 Tons Of Gold From Syria: Reports – https://southfront.org/u-s-transported-50-tons-of-gold-from-syria-report/ – “The US military is reportedly transferring tons of gold from ISIS-held areas in Syria to the US… According to a source contacted by Kurdish Bas News Agency, US forces transferred about 50 tons of gold from areas seized from ISIS in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor. The report says that a part of the remaining gold was shared with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG). According to the report, the gold was transported from the US military base in Ayn al-Arab (Kobani)… 40 tons of gold stolen by ISIS terrorists from Iraq’s Mosul was also taken by US forces, reports say… Local sources told the Syrian state-run SANA news agency claimed that the troops relocated large boxes containing ISIS gold treasure from al-Dashisheh region in southern Hasakah.” – Comment: Value of one metric ton of gold at today’s price: $42,306,108.00 – Value of 50 metric tons: $2,115,305,400– That’s $2.115 Billion

China Infiltrating U.S. Education System in Propaganda Coup – Report: From kindergarten to college, Chinese government programs indoctrinate youth – by Adam Kredo – https://freebeacon.com/national-security/china-infiltrating-u-s-education-system-in-propaganda-coup/ – “The wide-ranging report by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has found that China has spent nearly $200 million on educational entities known as Confucius Institutes. These programs have been instated in U.S. schools across the country with the mission of indoctrinating students and painting a sympathetic portrait of the Chinese Communist government, according to the report… The institutes are shrouded in mystery and have been the cause of much consternation on Capitol Hill and elsewhere as information about their reach and power in the United States becomes clearer… While the programs appear on their surface to be mundane—mainly focusing on language and cultural issues—the Senate committee found that these institutes constitute a threat to the United States. The Chinese government, the committee found, “is attempting to change the impression in the United States and around the world that China is an economic and security threat.” – Comment: IMO, this article begs the question of just what is propaganda here.

Do Russia and China Know Enough Econ 101 to Escape the Upcoming Paper Money Apocalypse of the West? – They’ve shown some affinity for gold, but they’ve stopped short of instituting it as currency – by Alasdair Macleod – https://russia-insider.com/en/do-russia-and-china-know-enough-econ-101-escape-upcoming-paper-money-apocalypse-west/ri26384 – “This article makes the obvious point that a return to a gold standard is the only way nations can contain the interest cost of servicing debt, given the alternative is inflationist policies that can only lead to far higher interest rates and currency destruction. The topic is timely, given the self-harm of American economic and geopolitical policies, which are already leading America into a cyclical slump. Meanwhile, American fears of Asian domination of global economic, monetary and political outcomes have come true. The upcoming credit crisis is likely to kill off the welfare state model in the West by destroying their unbacked paper currencies, while China, Russia and their Asian allies have the means to prosper.”
Fake science: The White House reportedly wants a new dodgy panel of scientists to challenge the government’s climate change findings – by Cody Fenwick – https://www.alternet.org/2019/02/fake-science-the-white-house-reportedly-wants-a-new-dodgy-panel-of-scientists-to-challenge-the-governments-climate-change-findings/ – “The White House intends to create a new panel of scientists with the intention of attacking the scientific consensus, both within and outside the federal government, that climate change poses a clear and severe threat to the world, a new report from Washington Post revealed Sunday… According to the report, officials in the National Security Council want to arrange the group so that it would be outside the normal scrutiny such advisory panels typically require. When formal advisory committees are usually set up, they are subject to stringent regulations that require public meetings, accommodation of records requests, and membership standards… Apparently, the White House doesn’t want the public to have clear insight into a committee designed to spread propaganda and disinformation about clearly established science.” Comment: I urge people to put on their thinking caps and consider what may be behind both the concept of “Fake Science,” and what seems to me is a hit-piece from Alternet (and the Anti-Trump Washington Post – Alternet does not link to the article they mention in the Post).
The Crisis of Science (32 min) – by James Corbett
Mr Bolton’s Long Game Against Iran – Pakistan Becomes Saudi Arabia’s New Client State – by Alastair Crooke – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/02/25/bolton-long-game-against-iran-pakistan-becomes-saudi-arabia-new-client-state.html – “So, what do we see? Until just recently, Pakistan was ‘on the ropes’ economically. It seemed that it would have to resort to the IMF (yet again), and that it was clear that the proximate IMF experience – if approved – would be extremely painful (Secretary Pompeo, in mid-last year, was saying that the US probably would not support an IMF programme, as some of the IMF grant might be used to repay earlier Chinese loans to Pakistan). The US too had punished Pakistan by severely cutting US financial assistance to the Pakistani military for combatting terrorism. Pakistan, in short, was sliding inevitably towards debt default – with only the Chinese as a possible saviour… And then, unexpectedly, up pops ‘goldilocks’ in the shape of a visiting MbS, promising a $20 billion investment plan as “first phase” of a profound programme to resuscitate the Pakistani economy. And that is on top of a $3 billion cash bailout, and another $3 billion deferred payment facility for supply of Saudi oil. Fairy godmothers don’t come much better than that. And this benevolence comes in the wake of the $6.2 billion, promised last month, by UAE, to address Pakistan’s balance of payments difficulties… The US wants something badly – It wants Pakistan urgently to deliver a Taliban ‘peace agreement’ in Afghanistan with the US which allows for US troops to be permanently based there (something that the Taliban not only has consistently refused, but rather, has always put the withdrawal of foreign forces as its top priority)… …During the Afghan war of the 1980s and later, Afghanistan always was the path for Islamic fundamentalism to reach up into Central Asia. In other words, America’s anxiety to achieve a permanent presence in Afghanistan – plus the arrival of militants from Syria – may somehow link to suggest a second motive to US thinking: the potential to curb Russia and China’s evolution of a Central Asian trading sphere and supply corridor… Putting this all together, what does this mean? Well, firstly, Mr Bolton was arguing for a US military ‘hub’ in Iraq – to put pressure on Iran – as early as 2003. Now, he has it. US Special Forces, (mostly) withdrawn from Syria, are deploying into this new Iraq military ‘hub’ in order, Trump said, to “watch Iran”. (Trump rather inadvertently ‘let the cat out of the bag’ with that comment).” – Comment: This is a long, complex, and brilliantly written article by Crooke. He presents a case that recent and recently announced payments of some 30+ Billion Dollars to Pakistan by the UAE and Saudi Arabia are, essentially, plausibly deniable U.S. foreign aid to Pakistan to further implement major U.S. military operations in Afghanistan – As part of a very long term strategy of undermining the stability of Chinese, Russian and Iranian cooperation and stabilization of Central Asia. This is the kind of nuanced and documented research that I would hope to see the Panterra Global Media Alliance support, if we hope to enroll a significant following of people who are working to create a new paradigm of human organization and action on this planet.

While the forest land is legally controlled by the government, people have lived in such areas for centuries.”
New US anti-Semitism envoy employs lessons learned from Iraq to fight ‘scourge’ – Elan Carr, attorney and ex-head of a US army anti-terrorism team, says he was chosen by philo-Semite Trump because his career has been about ‘fighting evil and keeping people safe’ – by Amanda Borschel-Dan and David Horovitz – https://www.timesofisrael.com/new-us-anti-semitism-envoy-employs-lessons-learned-from-iraq-to-fight-scourge/ – “As the United States experiences a surge in reported anti-Semitic incidents(Note: There is much evidence that this is not true), the newly appointed Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating Anti-Semitism Elan Carr told The Times of Israel that the Jewish community and Israel “couldn’t have a better friend in the White House” than President Donald Trump… Carr was appointed on February 5 to a statutory role that had been left vacant since the Trump administration entered the White House in January 2017.

“Forced Vaccination” is a Crime Against Humanity… – There Is NO Difference Between “Forced Vaccination” Programs And What The NAZI Doctor’s Did In The WWII Death Camps…- by Ralph Fucetola JD – https://bolenreport.com/forced-vaccination-is-a-crime-against-humanity/ – Across the United States legislators are demanding “tougher laws” forcing families to vaccinate, or lose public benefits. That these same legislators are beneficiaries of significant drug company political payments is not surprising… These new efforts are triggered by a small up-tick in the few cases of measles. More children die from the “unavoidably unsafe” measles vaccine than from the disease itself… When Congress abrogated our right to petition the federal and state courts for vaccine injuries in 1986 the promise was that vaccines would become safer and that the federal government would report to Congress annually about progress. No such reports have been submitted while families have suffered thousands of dead and maimed children as the legacy of US vaccination policy… The horrors of vaccine pseudo-science could, perhaps, have been tolerated, since families could have, in the past, always opt out of vaccination for religious or philosophical reasons. Where there is risk, there must be choice. However, that promise of “Informed Consent” is now under concerted attack in state after state.”
Another somber milestone for Afghanistan: 2018 saw record-high civilians killed in decade – UN report – https://news.un.org/en/story/2019/02/1033441 – “With over 3,800 civilian women, children and men killed in just one year, Afghanistan has hit yet another “deeply disturbing and wholly unacceptable” record, according to a new report issued on Sunday by the UN political mission in the country (UNAMA) and the UN human rights office (OHCHR).” – Comment: SO unacceptable.
Guaido: ‘We Must Have All Options’ to Free Venezuela – https://www.voanews.com/a/civilians-dead-in-venezuelan-violence/4801426.html – “At least four civilians were killed Saturday as Venezuelan security forces clashed with demonstrators at the border with Brazil over deliveries of humanitarian aid… ‘Today’s events force me to make a decision to formally propose to the international community that we must have all options open to secure the freedom our country‘ (i.e. Please invade us with your militaries), Venezuelan opposition leader and interim-president Juan Guaido wrote on Twitter late Saturday… Also late Saturday, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence announced plans to meet with Guaido Monday in Bogota. Pence is scheduled to address the Lima Group of regional leaders in Colombia Monday and will meet with Guaido while he is there… Pence could announce new sanctions at the Lima Group meeting, adding to sanctions on PDVSA (i.e. theft of Venezuelan property in the interest of enriching the U.S. Imperium), the state-owned oil company… Foro Penal [Criminal Forum], a group that tracks violence in Venezuela, reported the four deaths Saturday. It said they took place in Santa Elena de Uairen near the border with Brazil. It said the victims were shot by pro-government militia members (there is no factual reporting of these events – If the events that started the “Syrian Revolution” in 2011 are any guide, it is more likely anyone killed was shot by U.S. mercenaries, like the military aged men throwing rocks on the Columbian border.)… At one border point (on the Columbian border), aid trucks caught fire (video shows they were torched with molotov cocktails by some of the young men throwing rocks), leading the crowd to rush to save the boxes of food and medical supplies (the propaganda media said the fires were started by Venezuelan security)… Late Saturday U.S. Senator Marco Rubio tweeted that a Venezuelan lawmaker (Freddy Superlano, an associate of Juan Guaido) and his assistant had been poisoned. The assistant (Carlos Salinas, the cousin of Superlano) is dead, according to Rubio’s post and the lawmaker is in “serious condition.” (emphasis added) – Comment: This article is from the Official State Propaganda Service. What is the possibility that Carlos Salinas was “inconvenient” in some way to the Guaido coup faction, and was the real target of the poisoning? The Maduro govermment, like the Assad government who were accused of attacking Syrians with gas when their army was on the verge of military successes, has no benefit from using murder against the opposition. Juan Guaido, until he left for Columbia, was not only not arrested – or poisoned – but was allowed to lead demonstrations against the legitimate government and to speak to the foreign press. Imagine if a low-level politician in the U.S. had declared himself President and called for Trump to step down – what would have happened to him? Guantanamo?
I think it’s adequately clear that the system(s) of asset control worldwide are based on distraint and fraud going back centuries. Unless humanity are to remain slaves in whatever “new system” arises following whatever “reset” is to come, there will have to be full disclosure, forensic analysis, education of everyone to the extent of their capacities, and rigorous reparations through which all are made whole. Organization such as what Adi Da described in the No Enemies document is, in my opinion, essential to anything on this scale. But populations where real change arises will 1) need to stop tolerating rule by unethical people, and 2) come to understand the work necessary to come to grips with the apparent truths that were made available through spiritual teachers going back at least 3,000 years, and that are now being made plain by the scientific discoveries principally including quantum physics.
It is, IMO, not skillful (i.e. consigning one to continuing unsatisfactoriness and suffering) to take refuge in ideas such as “I’m not capable of realizing the truth and implications of the fact that whatever I am is not, and cannot be, separate in any way from that which I observe, because “I” am (too damaged or conditioned in some way by circumstances of which I am a victim, or whatever permutation of that which one may be attached to). We are now essentially in the position of being called to directly understand, on constantly deeper levels, exactly what we are, and how we collectively bring our world into manifestation. Here is a paragraph from No Enemies:
“In one of the Upanishads, it is said that wherever there is an “other”, fear arises.2 As soon as “difference” is presumed, as soon as separateness is presumed, as soon as an opponent is presumed, there is fear—or the disposition of separativeness, of self-protectiveness, of self-division. The non-presumption of an “other” is the essential principle that will liberate humankind. Wherever no “other” is presumed, Truth awakens.”
As Adyashanti has said, “Consciousness is self-liberating.” There is a natural path toward full awakening to what has been called our inner nature or natural state, which is simply being present with what is, without taking refuge in ego identification. Identification is a natural, completely understandable tendency to hold onto a story of “what happened to me and what I am because of that,” a story which can be easily seen to be incomplete, fragmentary, and colored by the filters of our conditioning. It is simply not skillful to take refuge in that mindset. All that is ultimately required is to see what we’re doing and observe how we feel as we do it. Then releasing it happens, just like we don’t think about what to do when we put our hand on a hot burner on the stove.
We will not, I’m sure, get out of the current situation in the world where we’re being herded into a constant proliferation of myriad separate group identities and accelerating “otherness,” without direct realization that we are all part of one living phenomenon. While we must obviously honor others’ individuality and personal space (this is part of ethical behavior), we drive the situation into greater degradation the instant that we see anyone as a threat outside of us and start to create strategies to take power over them.
There are obviously many people in the world now living in delusion. This clearly includes the unethical rulers mentioned above. We can, however, come together in versions of what Adi Da called a “Cooperative Forum.” In No Enemies he calls it “Global,” but at the moment that seems wildly out of reach. But any group that works together with an understanding of what Adi Da calls “prior unity,” or what I would argue is our clearly observable innate non-separation, can begin to make a real shift in human affairs that is not part of some kind of dialectical motion that is doomed to ongoing cycles of conflict.
Our “Shadowy Overlords” don’t behave as they do out of any great skills or strategic brilliance. If they had real wisdom, they would observe that acting unethically or attacking the well-being of people or living systems innately feels bad. Dealing with their depredations without feeding the warfare they bring will involve understanding how they are stuck in misperception and suffering. Bringing the “Matrix System” to an end, or removing what is an obstacle to the freedom of life itself to grow and unfold in strength, beauty and wisdom, is not a victory over an enemy. It is an act of compassion for everyone involved in the apparent drama that we have been born into.
The pattern of world politics that has been dramatized with increasing intensity over time-and with the most devastating effects in the twentieth century, with the two devastating world wars and all the other wars right up to the present day-is based on the idea and the pattern of polar opposition. Therefore, the common political method is to have opposites either confront one another or (otherwise) try to work out some kind of a deal with one another.
As Abraham Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” If the world-system is based on opposites, it will inevitably self-destruct-by creating chaos along the lines of division (or mutual opposition).
There have been (and, no doubt, will continue to be) many efforts to create some kind of global resolution (or world peace) by bringing opposites together. But any such effort is inevitably bound to fail. Such an effort cannot succeed. It is simply not possible, in the “physics” of human affairs, for such an approach to succeed.
Unity cannot be achieved by combining opposites. Unity is the prior condition, the condition that is always already the case. Prior unity makes all opposites obsolete. Therefore, it is prior unity that must be enacted, rather than any continuation of the pattern of oppositions.
The world-situation has now developed to the point that there is nothing further to expect but the global collapse that opposition will inevitably produce. Therefore, this is the critical moment to stop the play of opposites in the domain of world politics. The play of opposites must be replaced by the politics of prior unity—through the Global Cooperative Forum of everybody-all-at-once. Such is an absolute necessity. Otherwise, the play of polar opposites is going to become absolute destruction.
The principle of prior unity applies to all human endeavor, even to the integrity of a human body or a human personality. Unity is not the result of a play of opposites. Unity is the prior condition.
It is only when unity (or indivisibility) is the principle of life, of living, of action, that unity results. If division (or opposition) is presumed to be the case, more division will result. This is an absolute law. Once this is understood, it clarifies everything about right action and right life.
My address to all human issues-necessarily including what I am saying about world politics-is based on this fundamental principle: Reality Itself is a prior unity. Reality Itself is indivisible and egoless. Therefore, life must be lived in accordance with that Self-Nature of Reality Itself.
This absolute principle is fundamental to all resolution of human problems. In Gandhi’s language, it is a “soul-force”, or “truth-force”, as he understood it.1 That must be the force behind all political effort-the force of prior unity. The principle of prior unity determines a course of action that is (necessarily) inclusive of everybody-all-at-once. What is required is not a search for unity. Rather, what is required is the enacting of the power of prior unity. That is the principle. And it must be the governing principle of political action.
How should humankind deal with the world-situation? By enacting the principle of prior unity. And an instrument is required in order to do that. That instrument is the Global Cooperative Forum. The Global Cooperative Forum must make obsolete all play-of-opposition in the world, all nation state conflicts, all effort to size up great units of nation-states over against other such units, in the attempt to achieve victory over one another—one religion over another religion, one nation-state (or group of nation-states) over another nation-state (or group of nation-states), and so forth.
All of this effort to defeat the presumed opponent is insanity. Humankind cannot afford to go on with this. Humankind must stop this.
This is the decisive moment in human history to stop this, because such insanity cannot go on without total devastation being the result. Therefore, there truly is no choice.
Those who hear what I have to say about this will understand: There must be an active embrace of this understanding at every level of human life, including every matter associated with global politics and environmental issues. Everything at the human scale must be addressed on the basis of enacting the principle of prior unity, through instruments that are inclusive of everybody-all-at-once. It is essentially a matter of putting the Truth-principle (or Realityprinciple) of prior unity into action. And an instrument is needed to do that-not just words.
It is not a matter of bringing together collectives of different groups—such as governmental organizations and non-governmental organizations—so that they can each have their voice, thereby playing out the chaos of oppositions. There is no time to be doing any such thing. There must be a different instrument-and everybody-all-at-once must volunteer for it and become active within it.
Humankind must wake up to its inherent and intrinsic unity as a whole, and not play on any differences whatsoever. Human beings must grasp this understanding of prior unity-and act on it, through an appropriate instrument that is altogether full of integrity and altogether right. That is the immediate necessity associated with bringing the Global Cooperative Forum into being.
Wherever action is done in opposition to whatever force or entity is considered to be the opponent, wherever there is even a strategy relative to an opponent, the effort will fail. Some kinds of changes may be brought about-but, ultimately, everything stays the same, because the principle is one of division to begin with.
Likewise, every strategy that is developed in opposition to any force whatsoever will inevitably fail. The only principle that can work politically is one in which there is no opponent and no search to defeat an opponent—and, therefore, fundamentally no struggle. Right human politics is simply about enacting—or asserting and carrying out—the principle of prior unity.
That kind of activism does not presume an opponent. It does not involve itself with self-division. Consequently, it will not fail. In contrast, whatever presumes its own selfdivision will fail. It will only produce more division. Therefore, the only kind of political action that can possibly achieve ultimate success is activism based on (1) the presumption of prior unity and (2) the enactment of prior unity through an appropriate instrument.
There is nobody “else”. There is no opponent. The Global Cooperative Forum is a means for bypassing all oppositions, all opposites, and the entire game that plays upon there being opposites at all. There should be presumed to be no opposites, no enemies, no opponent to be defeated. There is simply the intrinsic fact of prior unity. Right politics is simply about acting on that basis.
That is what the Global Cooperative Forum must do. And that is what the form of global activism I am describing must do. That is how it must function: no enemies, no game in opposition, and (therefore) no strategy in relation to a presumed opponent—none.
That is the profundity at the root of such activism—the intensive presumption of non-separateness, of prior unity, of no opponent, of no self-division. That is the only right and effective strategy. It is not a goal-seeking strategy. It is a matter of enacting a prior reality, rather than seeking a different reality. Such is the unique understanding that is the root of all true wisdom.
When I am speaking about politics, I am looking at it in the context of humankind-as-a-whole—not in terms of any circumstance that is negative, full of opposites, looking to achieve some kind of a victory in relation to an opposite or an opponent or an enemy. The root-presumption of not having an enemy is essential to the Global Cooperative Forum. The Global Cooperative Forum must be intrinsically all-including. And there is a discipline necessary for doing that, because people’s patterning will tend to have them be expressing opposite views, different dispositions, and wanting to just sit around and talk about all of that. There should be absolutely no discussion of that kind. That has nothing to do with anything.
There is nothing but Reality Itself—the prior whole, the indivisible whole. That is the basis for all right action. All right human action must be based on this understanding.
In one of the Upanishads, it is said that wherever there is an “other”, fear arises.2 As soon as “difference” is presumed, as soon as separateness is presumed, as soon as an opponent is presumed, there is fear—or the disposition of separativeness, of self-protectiveness, of self-division. The non-presumption of an “other” is the essential principle that will liberate humankind. Wherever no “other” is presumed, Truth awakens.
That is the significance of the title of the book Not–Two Is Peace. What I describe in that book is not merely a method for seeking peace. All twoness is about a search toward a goal-including the goal of peace, which idealists want to find someday. What I am proposing is not idealism. Rather, it is perfect realism-in relation to politics, and in relation to every other domain of human life. Such realism involves the intensive non-presumption of “other” and “problem”. Such realism is the “not-two” presumption—thoroughly embraced, and become the basis of action. That action is already characterized by unity—not the search for unity, but the Is-ness of unity.
Such is the right basis for all human activism. Indeed, it is the basis for all right action in every domain of human life. And this understanding is how everything can be made right, now and in the future. It is the Wisdom-means that can (and must) be applied in the case of every human process. Therefore, it applies to everything—including the most inclusive of all possibilities, which is the right functioning of humankind-as-a-whole.
This is a call to everyone to be awakened to an intrinsic understanding. It is not about appealing to people as egos, or merely trying to get everybody together, with all their differences, to simply talk things out. It is not about anything like that. It is about completely bypassing all of that. All of that will fail. It is a waste of time-and there is no time to be wasted. Rather, this call to everyone is about presuming the intrinsic Truth-intuition (or Reality-intuition) in everyone, rather than appealing to people as consumer-egos or egos-in-high-places.
The principle of non-violence is an idealistic principle about how to function in relation to an opponent. What I am communicating is not that. The principle of “Not-Two Is Peace” is not a strategy in relation to an opponent. In fact, it is exactly not that. Thus, the principle of “Not-Two Is Peace” is not the principle of non-violence merely, even though it is thoroughly and intrinsically non-violent. Most fundamentally, the principle of “Not-Two Is Peace” is about not using any method that presumes to be in relation to an opponent.
All actions done in relation to an opponent—even if outwardly non-violent—are, in some sense, violent. That needs to be understood. Any struggle with an opponent is a kind of aggression, even if done through the device of non-violence.
The approach of “Not-Two Is Peace” (with the Global Cooperative Forum as its instrument) is not like that. It is not an effort in relation to an opponent. It is simply everybodyall-at-once becoming self-actualizing, self-enforcing, selfgoverning, self-rightening, self-correcting, self-organizing, not opposing anything. It is the whole-all-at-once putting itself in order, as it will inevitably do when the obstruction that is preventing that self-organizing process from happening is removed.
Thus, it is oppositions that are preventing the selforganizing process from happening. The idea of “difference” is what is preventing humankind from self-organizing and self-correcting and self-rightening itself. That is it. The presumption of “difference”, the presumption of opposites, of opponents, of necessary struggle, of seeking for unity, of winning against some force or other that is the opposite of your own—that is what is wrong.
This is the unique understanding that people must grasp. The lack of that understanding is the reason why humankind is defeating itself. That is why worthy purposes are failing. It is the presumption of “difference”, the presumption of the “other”, the presumption of “not yet—therefore, seeking is required”.
In other words, the presumption of egoity—or the presumption of separateness and the activity of separation—is the fault that makes all human effort fail. Ego is the “difference”-maker. Ego is the separatist (or separative) disposition. Ego ultimately avoids relationship, dissociating itself from the “other”. Therefore, the dissociative principle must be abandoned. It has nothing to do with peace. It has nothing to do with correcting the human situation.
All action based on the presumption of an “other” or of “difference” will inevitably fail. Such action only produces struggle, and not unity. Truly, it could be said that the entire world has engaged in its political efforts at the cost of destroying global unity. The United Nations functions on the basis of opposites or differences. It is based on bringing competitors or opponents together in one place, where they continue to be opponents and competitors in relation to one another. They sit around talking, but such talk has nothing to do with peace, with the unity and well-being of humankind-as-a-whole. Talk will never achieve peace or unity or well-being.
The Global Cooperative Forum is an intrinsically unified body representing everybody-all-at-once. Therefore, there are no differences in it. It is not about a council of nations. It is simply a working-instrument for the priorly unified totality (or whole) of humankind, and it presumes no differences.
Therefore, all name-tags and placards must be abandoned at the door. You do not bring your nation-state labels (or any other labels) inside. There are no “high” persons. There are no differences. There is no status. All are servants of the whole.
This is not mere idealism. This is Reality in action. It is an absolute necessity. It always has been—but it has never been understood in the context of humankind-as-a-whole, because humankind-as-a-whole never came together before. That coming-together is only a recent happening.
Thus, in the Global Cooperative Forum, it cannot be that the different nations, the different religions, the different cultures, the different races are each having their say, trying to “angle” relative to the interests on their side. The basis for coming together must be the principle of the human totality as a prior unity-bringing no differences to the table whatsoever, but simply bringing the subjects of address that are common to all, and collectively solving those issues through action that is appropriate to whatever particular subject.
To do that, all presumptions of “difference” must be abandoned. That is the principle of the Global Cooperative Forum.
As I have already described, the principle of prior unity as a political means is not the same as the strategy of non-violent aggression in relation to an opponent. It is quite different—and that difference must be understood. What I am communicating is something new. It is not in the likeness of anything that has previously been proposed or enacted. Sympathetic associations can be seen in the history of human efforts toward peace, but the principle of prior unity is not the same as any previous principle for establishing peace. What is unique about the principle of prior unity must be thoroughly grasped and intensively applied.
