The phrase and game footage used in the meme come from the 1992 port of the 1989 side-scrolling arcade shooter Zero Wing,[8] released on the SEGA Mega Drive. The quote is from the introduction sequence of the game in which the main antagonist, the leader of CATS appears to announce "all your base are belong to us" during an exchange with the ship's captain. The first GIF of the opening sequence is rumored to have originated on the Rage Games website in early 1998.[16] Additionally, the website Zany Video Game Quotes[11] has been credited with popularizing the GIF.[12][13] According to a timeline published on the site,[15] the GIF was posted on the site Zany Video Game Quotes in "late 1998/early 1999."

Digging Beneath the Surface: Contextual Data Mining

Living in the World of Big Data

We live in a world of Big Data, but just because there are tons of data everywhere doesn't mean that it's all equally valuable. The richest insights are often buried deep within a variety of sources and it can be a huge task to dig them out. Even as self-service analytical platforms proliferate, experts with the analytical skills to perform this much-needed work are in short supply. With data quantities growing every day, the skill gap will not be closed by humans. Only a massive technological solution can give users, businesses of all sizes, and indeed, the world, access to insights in ways that make sense to non-technical users on the scale that's needed.

Enter: Contextual Data Mining. Along with increases in the sheer volume of data that organizations are dealing with has come a surge in machine learning and artificial intelligence technology. The two phenomena are linked: only AI and ML can tackle the challenges presented by Big Data; meanwhile, Big Data provides an unparalleled opportunity for AL/ML systems to learn and grow, becoming more effective learners along the way. The future of business intelligence lies in augmented analytics and augmented BI systems where AI and ML are integrated across the entire BI process. These systems are the wave of the future, and Contextual Data Mining is the tip of the spear when it comes to putting AI-powered insights into the hands of business users and empowering builders to create the next generation of actionable analytical apps.

This paper will start by understanding the relationship organizations already have with their data. Then it will discuss technological approaches to solving the problem, followed by the opportunities that this technology opens up. Finally, it will look at how these new opportunities can positively impact frontline data users and organizations of all kinds.

Data Mining and Modeling
260 publications

The proliferation of machine learning means that learned classifiers lie at the core of many products across Google. However, questions in practice are rarely so clean as to just to use an out-of-the-box algorithm. A big challenge is in developing metrics, designing experimental methodologies, and modeling the space to create parsimonious representations that capture the fundamentals of the problem. These problems cut across Google's products and services, from designing experiments for testing new auction algorithms to developing automated metrics to measure the quality of a road map.

Data mining lies at the heart of many of these questions,
and the research done at Google is at the forefront of the field. Whether it is finding more efficient algorithms for working with massive data sets, developing privacy-preserving methods for classification, or designing new machine learning approaches, our group continues to push the boundary of what is possible.

The Student Data-Mining Scandal Under Our Noses
By Michelle Malkin
April 11, 2018 9:19 AM

With little public oversight, Google has infiltrated schools.

While congresscritters expressed outrage at Facebook's intrusive data grabs during Capitol Hill hearings with Mark Zuckerberg this week, not a peep was heard about the Silicon Valley–Beltway theft ring purloining the personal information and browsing habits of millions of American schoolchildren.

It doesn't take undercover investigative journalists to unmask the massive privacy invasion enabled by educational technology and federal mandates. The kiddie data heist is happening out in the open — with Washington politicians and bureaucrats as brazen co-conspirators.

Facebook is just one of the tech giants partnering with the U.S. Department of Education and schools nationwide in pursuit of student data for meddling and profit. Google, Apple, Microsoft, Pearson, Knewton, and many more are cashing in on the Big Data boondoggle. State and federal educational databases provide countless opportunities for private companies exploiting public schoolchildren subjected to annual assessments, which exploded after adoption of the tech-industry-supported Common Core "standards," tests, and aligned texts and curricula.

The recently passed Every Student Succeeds Act further enshrined government collection of personally identifiable information — including data collected on attitudes, values, beliefs, and dispositions — and allows release of the data to third-party contractors thanks to Obama-era loopholes carved into the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.

Updated July 19, 2018

According to urban legends and online rumors, dead babies are sold in Chinese hospitals and cooked and eaten as a delicacy
. The "evidence" of this—tabloid-style rumor-mongering and unsourced images circulating on the internet—has managed to fool a surprising number of people. The truth is that the Chinese are no more inclined to eat human children than people in any other part of the world.

The same holds true for Jews, Christians, "Gypsies," witches, aborigines, Satanists, and all the other ethnic and religious groups accused of practicing this bloody "custom" down through the centuries. There's simply no evidence that it exists, or has ever existed, anywhere on the planet.

In the Market for Fetal Body Parts, a Baby's Brain Sells for $3,340
Kelsey Bolar / April 20, 2016


Republicans on the special House panel investigating the transfer of fetal tissue from aborted babies will present evidence in a hearing today that breaks down the price per body part.

With release of this evidence, Republicans say, they have enough documentation to show that several abortion clinics and middleman procurement businesses may have violated federal law.

"It is just horrifying," Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., who leads the House's investigation of the fetal tissue industry, told The Daily Signal. "They are putting a dollar value on these organs from these children—unborn children that have been aborted. It is just beyond belief."

WASHINGTON, May 10, 2012 — China's one child policy, baby trafficking, and sex trafficking of North Korean women aren't the worst human rights violation happening in the country. Aborting innocent and healthy unborn children and eating them to boost one's stamina and sexual health is.

South Korean customs officials recently seized thousands of pills filled with powdered human baby flesh arriving from China. Since August 2011, South Korean officials have intercepted more than 17000 pills smuggled from China.

Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Business Partners Admit Guilt in $7.8 Million Settlement


Two of Planned Parenthood's business partners, DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, have admitted guilt in a $7.8 million settlement with the Orange County District Attorney for selling aborted baby body parts from Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties for profit in violation of federal and California law. The OCDA's press release credits citizen journalism reporting from The Center for Medical Progress for prompting the investigation of baby body parts trafficking in Orange County.

"The DaVinci companies' admission of guilt for selling baby parts from Planned Parenthood is a ringing vindication of CMP's citizen journalism methods and accuracy," says CMP Project Lead David Daleiden.
"In light of the news that Planned Parenthood is now under federal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice for the sale of fetal body parts, the next step is for Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties to be held accountable under the law for their 7-year-long aiding, abetting, and profiting in DaVinci's criminal scheme to sell baby parts for profit."

Child-Exploitation, Porn Charges Added to NXIVM Case
March 14, 2019

The Nefarious and Disturbing World of Pedophilia in D.C ... (

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (CN) – With a little over a month until trial, federal prosecutors leveled new child pornography and exploitation charges against the leader of a purported self-help group-turned-sex-slavery ring.

The explosive allegations against former NXIVM leader Keith Raniere were announced Wednesday evening following the guilty plea entered that afternoon by former NXIVM co-founder Nancy Salzman.

Prosecutors contend that the cult-like NXIVM (pronounced nexium) housed a secret, smaller group known as DOS, in which women extorted recruits into unpaid labor and into sexual relationships with Raniere. In some cases, the women were even branded with Raniere's initials.

A pretrial memorandum filed Tuesday by the government accuses Raniere of having sexual relationships with two underage girls. One allegedly became Raniere's first-line "slave" in DOS a decade after she was hired at age 15 to work for Salzman, the NXIVM president.

Raniere also allegedly coerced a minor to "engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing one or more visual depictions of such conduct," Wednesday's superseding indictment states.


The new superseding indictment includes four additional racketeering acts related to the new charges: two alleging sexual exploitation of a child, one alleging possession of child pornography, and one alleging visa fraud.

The grand jury also added two counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of possession of child pornography, and made small changes to other charges.

Why Google's Spying on User Data Is Worse than the NSA's
07/01/2013 04:06 pm ET Updated Nov 20, 2015

There is an odd cadence to the debate on the National Security Agency spying on user data supplied by social media companies like Google and Facebook, as if the comprehensive, integrated profiles of user data controlled by large multinational corporations was only a problem when the government got hold of them.

Don't get me wrong.  I opposed the Patriot Act and follow-up amendments and think the national security state is a danger that needs to be severely reined in.   Which is why I was quite happy that Edward Snowden's disclosures have highlighted the problem of national security state access to user data created in the wake of 9-11.


Illegal Corporate Data Collection

Let's start with data collection itself. While the legal basis for the NSA collection has been challenged, both the courts and Congressional Committees overseeing the collection have generally approved the program.  Compare that to companies like Google, which have violated the law repeatedly to collect user data.

Google's illegal "wi-spy" program of collecting user data over home wi-fi hubs using its Street View cars has led to investigations and fines for violations of the law in countries around the world.  Investigators were outraged when they reviewed the downloaded data and found Google had collected massive amounts of personal emails and data revealing everything from people's medical histories to their sexual preference to marital infidelity. (Google's defense that that it was all okay because they never looked at the illegally collected data is eerily similar to the NSA's).

When challenged on its illegal data collection, the company lied and stonewalled investigators around the world, with the Federal Communications Commission finding the company guilty of "willfully" ignoring subpoenas to delay investigations into the scandal, fining the company in a 25-page condemnation in April 2012 that concluded "Google's failure to cooperate with the Bureau was in many or all cases deliberate."

Mark Zuckerberg spent almost $60 million on 2 waterfront estates in Tahoe last winter. Here's a look at the 10 properties he owns across the US, from a modest Palo Alto home to a Hawaiian plantation

The billionaire Mark Zuckerberg recently expanded his real-estate portfolio and summer vacation options.

The Facebook CEO dropped more than $59 million on two adjacent Lake Tahoe properties last winter, Katherine Clarke of The Wall Street Journal reported. The purchase happened privately through a limited-liability company and a high-end wealth manager, according to Clarke.

It's just the latest addition to Zuckerberg's collection of properties in the western US — he also owns properties in Palo Alto, California; San Francisco; and the Hawaiian island of Kauai, making Tahoe his fourth location.

Collectively, Zuckerberg has purchased 10 properties, though he has a knack for also buying surrounding properties to ensure his privacy — he bought four homes surrounding his main Palo Alto residence and a stake in a beach adjacent to a plantation he purchased in Kauai.

Google's true origin partly lies in CIA and NSA research grants for mass surveillance
By Jeff Nesbit
December 8, 2017

Two decades ago, the US intelligence community worked closely with Silicon Valley in an effort to track citizens in cyberspace. And Google is at the heart of that origin story. Some of the research that led to Google's ambitious creation was funded and coordinated by a research group established by the intelligence community to find ways to track individuals and groups online.

The intelligence community hoped that the nation's leading computer scientists could take non-classified information and user data, combine it with what would become known as the internet, and begin to create for-profit, commercial enterprises to suit the needs of both the intelligence community and the public.
But this isn't just the origin story of Google: It's the origin story of the mass-surveillance state, and the government money that funded it.
The intelligence community wanted to shape Silicon Valley's supercomputing efforts at their inception so they would be useful for both military and homeland security purposes. Could this supercomputing network, which would become capable of storing terabytes of information, make intelligent sense of the digital trail that human beings leave behind?
If the intelligence community wanted to conduct mass surveillance for national security purposes, it would require cooperation between the government and the emerging supercomputing companies.

To do this, they began reaching out to the scientists at American universities who were creating this supercomputing revolution. These scientists were developing ways to do what no single group of human beings sitting at work stations in the NSA and the CIA could ever hope to do: gather huge amounts of data and make intelligent sense of it.

Sergey Brin and Larry Page, computer-science boy wonders

In 1995, one of the first and most promising MDDS grants went to a computer-science research team at Stanford University with a decade-long history of working with NSF and DARPA grants.
The primary objective of this grant was "query optimization of very complex queries that are described using the 'query flocks' approach." A second grant—the DARPA-NSF grant most closely associated with Google's origin—was part of a coordinated effort to build a massive digital library using the internet as its backbone. Both grants funded research by two graduate students who were making rapid advances in web-page ranking, as well as tracking (and making sense of) user queries: future Google cofounders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

The research by Brin and Page under these grants became the heart of Google: people using search functions to find precisely what they wanted inside a very large data set.


Did the CIA directly fund the work of Brin and Page, and therefore create Google? No. But were Brin and Page researching precisely what the NSA, the CIA, and the intelligence community hoped for, assisted by their grants? Absolutely.

To understand this significance, you have to consider what the intelligence community was trying to achieve as it seeded grants to the best computer-science minds in academia: The CIA and NSA funded an unclassified, compartmentalized program designed from its inception to spur the development of something that looks almost exactly like Google.

This Email Shows Google And NSA's Close Working Relationship

If Google wasn't cooperating with the National Security Agency's spying program, as the company has vehemently claimed again and again, why were the guys in charge of each organization emailing so much in 2011 and 2012?

The correspondence suggests a close relationship between the NSA and Google before former NSA contractor Edward Snowden ever leaked documents detailing the agency's online spying efforts. One of the two email chains describe a meeting between the NSA director and Google executives near an airport in San Jose, Calif.

"When we reach this point in our projects we schedule a classified briefing for the CEO's of key companies to provide them a brief on the specific threats we believe can be mitigated and to seek their commitment for their organization to move ahead," Alexander wrote in June 2012 email to Schmidt. "Google's participation in refinement, engineering and deployment of the solutions will be essential."
Google executives have maintained since the Snowden revelations that the search giant does not give the U.S. government access to its servers and the personal information of its users unless it is legally compelled to. If the government does have such access, Google does not know about it, Schmidt publicly stated in November.

Wow Salon ... earlier 2014:
Google's secret NSA alliance: The terrifying deals between Silicon Valley and the security state
Inside the high-level, complicated deals -- and the rise of a virtually unchecked surveillance power
Shane Harris
November 16, 2014 4:58PM (UTC)

In mid-December 2009, engineers at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, began to suspect that hackers in China had obtained access to private Gmail accounts, including those used by Chinese human rights activists opposed to the government in Beijing.


In what Google would later describe as "a highly sophisticated and targeted attack on our corporate infrastructure originating from China," the thieves were able to get access to the password system that allowed Google's users to sign in to many Google applications at once. This was some of the company's most important intellectual property, considered among the "crown jewels" of its source code by its engineers.


Google uncovered evidence of one of the most extensive and far-reaching campaigns of cyber espionage in U.S. history. Evidence suggested that Chinese hackers had penetrated the systems of nearly three dozen other companies, including technology mainstays such as Symantec, Yahoo, and Adobe, the defense contractor Northrop Grumman, and the equipment maker Juniper Networks.


Google had also alerted the NSA and the FBI that its networks were breached by hackers in China. As a law enforcement agency, the FBI could investigate the intrusion as a criminal matter. But the NSA needed Google's permission to come in and help assess the breach.

On the day that Google's lawyer wrote the blog post, the NSA's general counsel began drafting a "cooperative research and development agreement," a legal pact that was originally devised under a 1980 law to speed up the commercial development of new technologies that are of mutual interest to companies and the government. The agreement's purpose is to build something — a device or a technique, for instance. The participating company isn't paid, but it can rely on the government to front the research and development costs, and it can use government personnel and facilities for the research. Each side gets to keep the products of the collaboration private until they choose to disclose them. In the end, the company has the exclusive patent rights to build whatever was designed, and the government can use any information that was generated during the collaboration.


Google took a risk forming an alliance with the NSA. The company's corporate motto, "Don't be evil," would seem at odds with the work of a covert surveillance and cyber warfare agency. But Google got useful information in return for its cooperation.

Shortly after the China revelation, the government gave Sergey Brin, Google's cofounder, a temporary security clearance that allowed him to attend a classified briefing about the campaign against his company. Government analysts had concluded that the intrusion was directed by a unit of the People's Liberation Army. This was the most specific information Google could obtain about the source of the intrusion. It could help Google fortify its systems, block traffic from certain Internet addresses, and make a more informed decision about whether it wanted to do business in China at all. Google's executives might pooh-pooh the NSA's "secret sauce." But when the company found itself under attack, it turned to Fort Meade for help.


On September 23, 2013, the Cross Sector Enduring Security Framework Operations Working Group discussed an update to an initiative described as "Connect Tier 1 and USG Operations Center."

"Tier 1" usually refers to a major Internet service provider or network operator. Some of the best-known Tier 1 companies in the United States are AT&T, Verizon, and CenturyLink. "USG" refers to the U.S. government. The initiative likely refers to a physical connection running from an NSA facility to those companies, as part of an expansion of the DIB pilot program.

The expansion was authorized by a presidential executive order in February 2013 aimed at increasing security of critical-infrastructure sites around the country. The government, mainly through the NSA, gives threat intelligence to two Internet service providers, AT&T and CenturyLink. They, in turn, can sell "enhanced cybersecurity services," as the program is known, to companies that the government deems vital to national and economic security. The program is nominally run by the Homeland Security Department, but the NSA provides the intelligence and the technical expertise.

WikiLeaks publishes 'biggest ever leak of secret CIA documents'

The 8,761 documents published by WikiLeaks focus mainly on techniques for hacking and surveillance

Ewen MacAskill Defence and security correspondent, Sam Thielman in New York, and Philip Oltermann in Berlin
Tue 7 Mar 2017 11.42 EST

The thousands of leaked documents focus mainly on techniques for hacking and reveal how the CIA cooperated with British intelligence to engineer a way to compromise smart televisions and turn them into improvised surveillance devices.
The leak, named "Vault 7" by WikiLeaks ...

The new documents appear to be from the CIA's 200-strong Center for Cyber Intelligence and show in detail how the agency's digital specialists engage in hacking. Monday's leak of about 9,000 secret files, which WikiLeaks said was only the first tranche of documents it had obtained, were all relatively recent, running from 2013 to 2016.
The revelations in the documents include:

CIA hackers targeted smartphones and computers.
The Center for Cyber Intelligence, based at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, has a second covert base in the US consulate in Frankfurt which covers Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
A programme called Weeping Angel describes how to attack a Samsung F8000 TV set so that it appears to be off but can still be used for monitoring.

Social Media Is a Tool of the CIA. Seriously
By Jim Edwards
Updated on: July 11, 2011 / 8:12 AM / MoneyWatch

You don't need to wear a tinfoil hat to believe that the CIA is using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people. That's because the CIA publishes a helpful list of press releases on all the social media ventures it sponsors, via its technology investment arm In-Q-Tel.

The companies that take In-Q-Tel's money aren't shy about publicizing what they're up to, either. Most recently, GeoSemble announced an update to its GeoXray product, which monitors social media chatter based on location:

This capability benefits business users who may be monitoring competition, supply chain activity or business opportunities in a county, neighborhood or border region.

The world's largest database on individuals

One of the main threats to privacy comes from advertisers, who want to track everything consumers do on the web and scrape their online accounts for personal information. It shouldn't be surprising, therefore, to learn that the CIA and the worlds largest ad agency network, WPP (WPPGY), have been in bed together on a social media data-mining venture since at least January 2009.

Arab Spring: A Series of CIA-Coordinated Color Revolutions Delineated By Obama's Presidential Study Directive 11
Posted on November 6, 2016 by State of the Nation

The Hidden Agenda Behind Emailgate, Servergate and Benghazigate...
And Why They Will Not Go Away


Democrats always start the World Wars

History is quite clear about how Democratic administrations have always been used over the past 100 years to start the really BIG wars. In fact, the Democrats have set up and started all the World Wars, as well as other major wars, with the exception of the Mideast wars of this third millennium.


Clinton's War Resume

The Obama-Clinton scheme to restart the Cold War as a prelude to initiating hostilities toward World War III was spelled out in Presidential Study Directive 11. Also known as PSD-11, this covert plan served as the official blueprint for the U.S.-directed Arab Spring. The Arab Spring was essentially a series of fabricated coup d'états and revolutions carried out by the CIA, MI6, MOSSAD, DSGE and GID throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

FACE THE MUSIC Mark Zuckerberg grins as lawmaker tells him 'perhaps you believe you are above the law?' in Facebook crypto grilling

MARK Zuckerberg smirked as he was grilled over Facebook's plans for a cryptocurrency – with one lawmaker saying: "Perhaps you believe you are above the law?"

The Facebook chief was interrogated for six hours on Wednesday about Libra cryptocurrency – dubbed 'Zuck Bucks' – which experts warn "will help terrorists and drug dealers".


Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other representatives also roasted Zuckerberg over political ads, hate speech and Facebook's privacy scandals over the past two years.

The House Financial Services Committee's immediate focus was dissecting Facebook's plans for a rival to Bitcoin.

Zuckerberg endured hours of prickly questioning, but it was Democratic Chairwoman Maxine Waters who landed the biggest blow.

Rep Waters accused the Facebook CEO of "aggressively" increasing the size of the company and "stepping over anyone and the US democracy to get what you want".

The End Of Money
Prepare for the coming wealth transfer
by Chris Martenson
Friday, November 1, 2019, 11:03 PM

Today we live in a bifurcated economy: it is boom times for some and bust times for others.

Your personal situation depends largely on how close you fall on the socioeconomic spectrum to the protected elite class, towards which the central banks are directing their money-printing firehoses.

Why should we care about this bifurcation? History.

2,000 years ago, in Plutarch's time, it was already 'old wisdom' that unhealthy wealth imbalances ended badly for society:

Even those near the top of the wealth pyramid don't aspire to live surrounded by an impoverished underclass, forced to live hiding behind their fortifications and guards, hoping the unrest of the masses doesn't get any worse.

But sadly, the US is not far off from this fate...this is Los Angeles:


The streets of San Francisco, Seattle, and a growing number of other once-proud American cities look very similar.

I care about our social stability which is why I believe in having a strong and vibrant middle class – something the US Federal Reserve is working to destroy with every intervention.  It has been a shameless champion of the entrenched ultra-rich and powerful; at the expense of everyone else.  Because of this, I've been a fierce critic of the Fed and its policies.

New Silk Road or New Green Deal

It is no secret that Carney as well as French Finance Minister Bruno LaMaire have recently stated that if a Global Green New Deal is not imposed quickly then China's New Silk Road will become the basis of a new post-Bretton Woods system. In the minds of an oligarchical governing class obsessed with control, this multipolar future premised on long term growth and international development projects WITH NO DEFINED ENDPOINT POSSIBLE is a horror not to be permitted- even at the cost of launching WWIII.

This is where the economic meltdown and the green digital currency "solution" are revealed in their full ugliness.

The reason why those countries led by Russia and China are jumping on board a New Silk Road is because the paradigm governing it is premised upon REAL VALUE! By lifting people out of poverty (800 million in China alone), and valuing the creative powers of mind which multiply their opportunities of action when given a pro-industrial growth-oriented paradigm, these Eurasian powers have tapped into the source of value which guided the west in the post WWII years. The problem with this paradigm which zero-sum thinking geopoliticians HATE is that once any genuine program of serious development starts, you can't really stop. It's an open system and since it is premised on human creative thought and free will, it is also non-linear. This fact of open-non linearity is really humanity's saving grace.

When nations elevate their citizens to higher standards of living, rates of consumption increase, as do rates of attrition of existing resource baskets, but cognitive powers also increase which must offset that entropy with greater rates of anti-entropy through new discoveries and inventions! These must be applied in the form of industrial and technological progress. Imagine what the world would already look like if JFK's program for a space based economy powered by nuclear fusion wasn't de-railed over his dead body!

This entire science of physical economy is both at the heart of the Belt and Road Initiative today and its principles were discussed already many decades ago in the 1984 textbook So You Wish to Learn All About Economics and associated video the Power of Labor. It is well worth taking the time to work through this material seriously if one considers themselves a truth-seeker in today's world.

The only reason why the Bank of England's green digital currency is taken seriously at all today is because westerners have become so psycho-spiritually detached from reality during the years since the "consumer society cult" led people to believe that a nation could magically exist as a services economy without producing.

Just like those technocrats in 1919 who imposed impossible Versailles reparations onto a defeated Germany while simultaneously gouging the physical economic basis of the Weimar Republic's existence, today's technocrats are hungry for a new fascist solution to the problem of sovereign nation states. We know what almost happened in Germany when the last project funded by the Bank of England failed in 1945... but what about today?

George Orwell's Animal Farm ~ 1954 Animation [full movie]
George Orwell New Mexico exhibit bares 'doublespeak' legacy

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.

Those were the slogans of the Party in George Orwell's 1949 novel "1984" that allowed the superstate of Oceania to keep its population under control. The Thought Police thwarted dissent. The Ministry of Truth promoted lies. The Ministry of Love tortured lovers.
"George Orwell: His Enduring Legacy" which runs to April, features posters and material related to "1984″ and his 1945 allegorical novella, "Animal Farm." It also contains rare Orwell books in different languages to highlight his reach and evolution as a writer.


A poster promoting a cartoon version George Orwell's novel "Animal Farm" is shown at an exhibit in Albuquerque, N.M. celebrating the author's legacy. The exhibit at the University of New Mexico is tackling the themes of the novelist's work from "1984" to "Animal Farm." "George Orwell: His Enduring Legacy," which runs to April 2020, features posters and material related to work challenging totalitarianism. (AP Photo/ Russell Contreras)
Then, there are the portrayals of Napoleon, the authoritarian pig in Animal Farm. Red posters show Napoleon in military gear of communist Eastern Europe. Other images show his celebrating his abundance at the sake of others, since, "all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on Bowing to Saudi Censorship: 'We're Not Trying to Do Truth to Power'
Joshua Caplan
6 Nov 2019

Appearing Tuesday at the New York Times' Dealbook conference, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings attempted to explain away the streaming giant's decision to censor one of its programs in Saudi Arabia, contending "we're not trying to do truth to power."

Hastings's admission came in response to interviewer Andrew Sorkin's question about why Netflix pulled an episode of comedian Hasan Minhaj's show Patriot Act in Saudi Arabia following a meltdown by the Islamic country.

"We're not in the news business, we're not trying to do truth to power. We're trying to entertain," Hastings explained to Sorkin when asked about the move.

U.S. declassifies key name in Saudi-9/11 suit, but won't release it publicly
The long-awaited decision involved whether to disclose the name of a person who allegedly directed two men in California who assisted hijackers in the 9/11 attacks.

Sept. 12, 2019, 11:44 AM PDT
By Josh Lederman, Kristen Welker, Tom Winter and Julia Ainsley

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration decided Thursday to declassify a key name long sought by relatives of 9/11 victims who are suing Saudi Arabia over allegations of that country's involvement, but declined to release the name publicly.

The name of the individual, which the 9/11 families believe may support their allegation of Saudi involvement in the terror attacks, will be disclosed to the plaintiff's lawyers under a protective order. The order makes it illegal for those attorneys to release the name to the public, meaning the identity of the individual will remain a secret — at least for now.

The decision by the FBI and the Justice Department was a partial victory for the 9/11 families, who have been fighting in court to compel the Trump administration to hand over the name. Terry Strada, who chairs the group 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism, called it "a good result."

Lawyers for the 9/11 families have sought to get the unredacted version released by the FBI, and a deadline for the Justice Department to decide whether to release was delayed several times at the government's request, most recently until Thursday.

In the end, the Justice Department declined to invoke the "state secrets" privilege, a provision in U.S. law that allows the government to refuse to release information in lawsuits that could undermine national security. The FBI said in a statement that the decision was made "in light of the extraordinary circumstances of this particular case."

Italy's Leftist Government Hands Out More Cash To Migrants Than Disabled Italians

by Tyler Durden
Thu, 11/07/2019 - 05:00
Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,
Italy's new leftist government is set to hand out more welfare cash to migrants than its own disabled citizens.
Abandoning their own people.

Migrants Discover New Route into Italy (

Italy's new leftist government is set to hand out more welfare cash to migrants than its own disabled citizens.

Recently released figures show that the state will allocate €50 million next year, €200 million in 2021, and €300 million in 2022 to the Disability and Self-Reliance Fund.

Given that two million out of three million disabled people in Italy rely on state benefits, this works out at just 54 cents per day in welfare, which isn't even enough to live on a subsistence diet.

In contrast, migrants receive €20 euros a day, a figure that used to be even higher at €35 euros a day before Matteo Salvini reduced it.

According to Fabio Scaltritti of the Community San Benedetto al Porto in Alessandria, the question over handing money to migrants isn't an economic issue, it's an "ethical" necessity.
As we previously highlighted, when the leftist government was last in power during the height of the migrant crisis, some Italian citizens had their property requisitioned by the authorities and were forced to rent it out to migrants at rock bottom prices.

Looks like the bad old days are back now that Salvini is out of power.
My voice is being silenced by free speech-hating Silicon Valley behemoths who want me disappeared forever. It is CRUCIAL that you support me.

Top-secret government center admits interference with Fauquier garage door openers
    Nov 6, 2019 Updated 23 hrs ago

A top-secret and secure federal government facility just northwest of Warrenton admitted this week it may be responsible for crippling dozens of garage door openers in two nearby subdivisions,'s Don Del Ross writes.

More than 70 Olde Gold Cup and Silver Cup Estates homeowners have reported that openers started to fail about two weeks ago, according to Betty Compton, Olde Gold Cup's Neighborhood Watch group coordinator.

Warrenton Training Center B, a classified federal facility, issued a statement this week saying its radios may be to blame.

Military Jams Garage Doors Openers
December 6, 2004 / 3:36 PM / CBS/AP

Coming soon to dozens of military bases around the country: radio signals strong enough to jam nearby garage-door openers.

Between now and 2008, the military is supplying a new radio system to roughly 125 bases that uses the same frequency as the one relied upon by more than 90 percent of the remotely operated openers, Pentagon and industry officials say.

The military radio signal is sometimes so strong that it overpowers the opener's signal, preventing the door from opening. Or it can also vastly reduce the opener's range, forcing the user to walk close to the garage before it will open.

A Giant Statue Of Molech Has Been Put Up Right At The Entrance To The Colosseum In Rome
November 8, 2019 Constitutional DrunkNews, Politics


Tourists that visit the Colosseum in Rome these days are getting quite a shock.

A gigantic statue of a pagan Canaanite deity known as "Molech" has been erected right at the entrance. 
In ancient times, those that served Molech would literally sacrifice their children to him, and apparently this involved burning them to death.  And now a massive statue of this pagan idol is the centerpiece of a new "archaeological exhibition" at the world famous Roman Colosseum.  Yes, the exact same Colosseum where countless numbers of Christians were martyred for their faith is now the home for one of the most monstrous pagan deities that the world has ever seen.

I know that this sounds almost too strange to be true, but this is actually happening.  The following comes from the official press release for this "exhibition"... [

A reconstruction of the terrible deity Moloch, linked to Phoenician and Carthaginian religions and featured in the 1914 film Cabiria (directed by Giovanni Pastore and written by Gabriele D'Annunzio) will be stationed at the entrance to the Colosseum to welcome visitors to the exhibition.

"Maybe The Rich See The Writing On The Wall": CEOs Stepping Down At Highest Levels Since 2008

Authored by Eoin Higgins via,

A record number of CEOs left their positions in October, a corporate outplacement firm reported Wednesday, the most in one month since the 2008 recession.

The news from Challenger, Gray & Christmas raised eyebrows—and concerns over a possible incoming recession—Wednesday evening at progressive news co-op The District Sentinel's radio show.

    "Maybe this means nothing, maybe this is a coincidence," said show co-host Sam Sacks.

"Or maybe rich people can see the writing on the wall and are cashing out right now."

"Maybe these CEOs are seeing that inverted yield and are just like, 'yeah, let's just take our golden parachutes and get the f___ out of here,'"

In America or anywhere in the "western" conuntries, no one voted for mass immigration  or population replacement ...
November 15, 2017

What happened was: Democrats brought in new voters. In 1970, only one out of every 100 Virginians was foreign-born. By 2012, one in nine Virginians was foreign-born.

The foreign-born vote overwhelmingly, by about 80 percent, for Democrats. They always have and they always will -- especially now that our immigration policies aggressively discriminate in favor of the poorest, least-educated, most unskilled people on Earth. They arrive in need of a LOT of government services.

According to the Pew Research Center, 75 percent of Hispanic immigrants and 55 percent of Asian immigrants support bigger government, compared to just over 40 percent of the general public. Even third-generation Hispanics support bigger government by 58 percent.

Polls show that immigrants are far more likely to support Obamacare and affirmative action than the general public, and are far less likely to support gun rights and capitalism.


In the past 40 years, upward of 50 million culturally backward, dirt-poor immigrants arrived in America, and state after state has gone blue, but we're always told states are flipping to the Democrats for some reason -- any reason! -- other than immigration.

True, Virginia is home to 322,198 people who are either current or retired federal employees. On the other hand, there are more than 800,000 Virginians who are foreign-born -- and that's not including the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the foreign-born who arrived in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

The only reason Democrats want a never-ending stream of Third World immigrants is because they know immigrants will help them win elections, allowing The New York Times to write self-congratulatory editorials like this one last week: "Virginia Rejects Your Hateful Politics, Mr. Trump."


As Democratic consultant Patrick Reddy wrote for the Roper Center 20 years ago, the 1965 Immigration Act, bringing in "a wave of immigration from the Third World," will go down in history as "the Kennedy family's greatest gift to the Democratic Party."

There isn't much time on the clock before it's lights-out for the GOP. And all Republicans can think to do is argue about how quickly to grant amnesty to so-called "Dreamers" and give the Democrats another 30 million voters.

67.3 Million in the United States Spoke a Foreign Language at Home in 2018
In nine states, one in four residents now speaks a language other than English at home

Based on analysis of newly released Census Bureau data for 2018, the Center for Immigration Studies finds that 67.3 million residents in the United States now speak a language other than English at home, a number equal to the entire population of France. The number has nearly tripled since 1980, and more than doubled since 1990. The growth at the state level is even more pronounced. All language figures in Census Bureau data are for persons five years of age and older.

Among the findings:

    In 2018, a record 67.3 million U.S. residents (native-born, legal immigrants, and illegal immigrants) spoke a language other than English at home. The number has more than doubled since 1990 and almost tripled since 1980.

Since 1980, the number who speak a foreign language at home grew nearly seven times faster than the number who speak only English at home. Even since 2010, when the number speaking a foreign language at home was already very large, the number of foreign-language speakers increased more than twice as fast as that of English speakers.1

As a share of the population, 21.9 percent of U.S. residents speak a foreign language at home — more than double the 11 percent in 1980.

California Approves $3.2 Billion Bond For High Speed Train To Nowhere
11/09/2019 - 21:01

The high speed train is dead, long live the high speed train.

Less than a year after California Gov. Gavin Newsom brought California's dreams for a LA to San Fran bullet train crashing down, when he said in February that he is ending the state's hugely expensive and hopelessly quixotic high-speed rail line fiasco (which would have been completed in 2033 at a staggering cost of $77 billion), California is about to unleash another high speed train project, and this one is even more idiotic.

The California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank (IBank) has authorized a $3.2 billion tax-exempt, fixed-rate revenue bond issuance to help DesertXpress Enterprises, an affiliate of Virgin Trains USA, build a high-speed train from Victorville, California, to Las Vegas. The new XpressWest service, at speeds of up to 180 miles per hour, will take about 90 minutes one way.

There is just one problem: Victorville, located in SoCal's high desert, is quite literally in the middle of nowhere.


"If you're driving from Los Angeles to Victorville, by the time you get there, you're pretty much halfway to Vegas," O'Toole said, "so why would you stop and leave your car somewhere and take a train and then have to walk to wherever your destination is — or take a cab or an Uber or Lyft — when you can just drive your car there?"


So why does California continue to press along with not one but two train projects it knows will be a disaster? The answer is simple: "free" Federal money. The High-Speed Rail authority is trying to beat a Dec. 31, 2022 deadline in order to not lose a $929 million Federal Railroad Administration grant for that particular segment.

Poland Becomes First Country in 5 Years to Join U.S. Visa Waiver Program
Rosie Spinks, Skift
- Nov 06, 2019 12:35 pm

In a much-needed bright spot for the U.S. travel industry, Poland became the 39th country to be added to the visa waiver program on Wednesday.

From Nov. 11, Polish nationals will be eligible to apply for the waiver using the Electronic System for Travel Authorization — more commonly referred to as ESTA — enabling them to visit the U.S. for 90 days without a visa.

Poland is the first nation to be added to the program since 2014, when Chile joined. Visa waivers are generally limited to countries who are considered "close allies" of the U.S. — and that reciprocate in the form of their own visa policies. In a nation with a reputation for onerous entry requirements, it has been a powerful way to attract international leisure and business travelers to the U.S.

Czech Republic

New Zealand

San Marino
South Korea
United Kingdom

Since 2005, the U.S. Department of State has been conducting discussions with countries known as "road map countries," which are interested in joining (or rejoining) the VWP.[11]

Of the original 19 countries, 11 have been admitted to the VWP. The remaining eight countries are:

Argentina (previous member, 1996–2002)[11][12]
Uruguay (previous member, 1999–2003)[11][

If you are citizen of a Visa Waiver Program partner, but have received a notice that you are no longer eligible to travel to the United States under that program and you are also a citizen of, or had recent travel to, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, and Syria, you may request an expedited appointment if your travel is imminent.
Although Romanian nationals do not currently qualify to travel under the Visa Waiver Program, travelers who qualify for the Visa Waiver Program are advised that effective January 20,2010 registration through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is mandatory prior to travel to the United States. Travelers who have not obtained approval through ESTA should expect to be denied boarding on any air carrier bound for the United States. Travelers wishing to register for ESTA directly should visit the ESTA website to apply.

The Schengen Area ( /ˈʃɛŋən/) is an area comprising 26 European states that have officially abolished all passport and all other types of border control at their mutual borders. The area mostly functions as a single jurisdiction for international travel purposes, with a common visa policy. The area is named after the 1985 Schengen Agreement.

22 of the 28 EU member states participate in the Schengen Area. Of the six EU members that are not part of the Schengen Area, four—Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, and Romania—are legally obliged to join the area in the future, while the other two—Ireland and the United Kingdom—maintain opt-outs. The four European Free Trade Association (EFTA) member states, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland, are not members of the EU, but have signed agreements in association with the Schengen Agreement. Three European microstates that are not members of the European Union but which are enclaves or semi-enclave within an EU member state—Monaco, San Marino, and Vatican City—are de facto part of the Schengen Area.


The Schengen Area has a population of over 400 million people and an area of 4,312,099 square kilometres (1,664,911 sq mi).


The Schengen Agreement was signed on 14 June 1985 by five of the ten EEC member states[8] in the town of Schengen, Luxembourg. The Schengen Area was established separately from the European Economic Community, when consensus could not be reached among all EC member states on the abolition of border controls.

The Agreement was supplemented in 1990 by the Schengen Convention, which proposed the abolition of internal border controls and a common visa policy.[9] The Agreements and the rules adopted under them were entirely separate from the EC structures, and led to the creation of the Schengen Area on 26 March 1995.[10]


The only land borders with border controls (not counting temporary ones) between EU/EEA members, are those of Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania (which are expected to be removed), the one at Gibraltar and those at the Channel Tunnel (which are to cease to be an EU/EEA land border if Brexit goes ahead).

The U.S.'s historic economic expansion has so enriched one-percenters they now hold almost as much wealth as the middle- and upper-middle classes combined.

Wealth Floats

U.S. household wealth become more concentrated among the top tenth


The very richest had assets of about $35.4 trillion in the second quarter, or just shy of the $36.9 trillion held by the tens of millions of people who make up the 50th percentile to the 90th percentile of Americans -- much of the middle and upper-middle classes.
It may not be long before one-percenters actually surpass the middle and upper-middle classes. Household wealth in the upper-most bracket grew by $650 billion in the second quarter of 2019, while Americans in the 50th to 90th percentiles saw a $210 billion gain.

According to a new poll conducted by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, 70% of millennials would likely vote for a socialist candidate. Furthermore, 19% of them see The Communist Manifesto as a surer guarantee of freedom and equality than the Declaration of Independence, and 15% think that the world would be a better place if the Soviet Union still existed.


The Long March Through The Institutions

The answer is straightforward: Teachers and professors are bombarding students with communist propaganda. They teach that the U.S. was founded on slavery while conveniently overlooking the fact that western civilization is the only one in the world to have successfully abolished slavery.

They teach that Hitler was the vilest person ever to have existed but conveniently forget to mention that Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Ceausescu, Mugabe, Barre, and Castro together killed far more than 100 million people and enslaved many more across four continents. Students learn about the Holocaust, but not the Holodomor.

The professors are not doing this out of ignorance. After World War II, when it became clear that Marxism could never compete with capitalism as an economic system, the radical left formulated a strategy of achieving their utopia by taking over the educational institutions and indoctrinating children with their worldview.

That would have sounded like a conspiracy theory if it hadn't been for the fact that leftists have been open about this goal for a long time.

Google's secret cache of medical data includes names and full details of millions – whistleblower
Ed Pilkington in New York

Tue 12 Nov 2019 10.29 EST

The secret scheme involves the transfer to Google of healthcare data held by Ascension, the second largest healthcare provider in the US.

Whistleblower speaks to Guardian about growing alarm over secret transfer of medical history data, which can be accessed by Google staff

A whistleblower who works in Project Nightingale, the secret transfer of the personal medical data of up to 50 million Americans from one of the largest healthcare providers in the US to Google, has expressed anger to the Guardian that patients are being kept in the dark about the massive deal.

The anonymous whistleblower has posted a video on the social media platform Daily Motion that contains a document dump of hundreds of images of confidential files relating to Project Nightingale. The secret scheme, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, involves the transfer to Google of healthcare data held by Ascension, the second largest healthcare provider in the US. The data is being transferred with full personal details including name and medical history and can be accessed by Google staff. Unlike other similar efforts it has not been made anonymous though a process of removing personal information known as de-identification.

The whistleblower introduces the video with the words:
"I must speak out about the things that are going on behind the scenes."
According to the whistleblower, the security fears raised at that meeting, including concerns that the transfer may be in breach of federal HIPAA rules on data privacy, have so far gone unanswered by Google.
The Guardian does not know the identity of the whistleblower. They are one of about 300 employees working on Project Nightingale, approximately half on the Google side and half with Ascension.
The ambition of Google's parent company Alphabet is to develop new AI tools that can help predict health patterns and improve treatment. Google recently announced plans to buy Fitbit Inc for $2.1bn, aiming to enter the wearables market and invest in digital health.
"Patients haven't been told how Ascension is using their data and have not consented to their data being transferred to the cloud or being used by Google. At the very least patients should be told and be able to opt in or opt out," the whistleblower writes.

Behind Google's 'Project Nightingale': A Health Data Gold Mine of 50 Million Patients
Deal with Ascension health system, aimed at improving patient care, attracts criticism because of privacy concerns
By Rob Copeland
Nov. 12, 2019 10:17 am ET

The detailed health information of millions of Ascension patients is scattered across 40 data centers in more than a dozen U.S. states. In an ambitious, all-in bet, Google and the nonprofit health system are putting all of that data into the cloud—with potentially big changes on tap for doctors and patients.

| - - - -

Project Nightingale is a data sharing project financed by Google and Ascension, a Catholic health care system comprising a chain of 2,600 hospitals, doctors' offices and other related facilities, in 21 states, with tens of millions of patient records available for processing health care data. Ascension is one of the largest health-care systems in the United States with comprehensive and specific health care information of millions who are part of its system.

Google is involved with Ascension to process this data, which began in secret sometime in 2018, without knowledge and consent of patients and doctors.
The project is Google's attempt to gain a foot hold into the healthcare industry on a large scale.[1] Amazon, Microsoft and Apple, inc. are also actively advancing into health care, but none of their business arrangements are equal in scope to Project Nightingale.[1][2][4]
The data sharing includes patient names and their dates of birth, along with doctor diagnoses, lab results, and hospitalization records, amounting to access to complete medical records
Patients and doctors have not been apprised. Ethical and technical questions have been raised. 150 Google employees are allowed to access much of the data on millions patients. The project is controversial because Google has paid large fines for violating privacy laws

| - - - -

Listening to you, caring for you

From the moment you walk through our doors, you'll hear the sounds of hope, health and strength, because we're more than just hospitals, ERs and clinics. Ascension care teams start by understanding you, your health and your life to deliver care that's right for you. The compassionate, personalized care you've come to expect is close to home and connected to a national network of care and the expertise of a wide range of doctors and specialists. So, you'll be connected to all the care you need for you and your family.

UN Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer exposes propaganda and censorship in Assange reporting
By Chris Marsden
1 July 2019

When Nils Melzer, the UN special rapporteur on torture, issued a May 31 statement demanding an immediate end to the "collective persecution" of Julian Assange it made headlines all over the world.

Assange, Melzer wrote, "has been deliberately exposed, for a period of several years, to progressively severe forms of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, the cumulative effects of which can only be described as psychological torture."

"In 20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political persecution, I have never seen a group of democratic states ganging up to deliberately isolate, demonise and abuse a single individual for such a long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of law," he added.

In the run-up to last Wednesday's International Day in Support of Torture Victims,
Melzer wrote an op-ed titled, "Demasking the Torture of Julian Assange."

He offered the hard-hitting piece to leading publications, including the Guardian, the Times, the Financial Times, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian, the Canberra Times, the Telegraph, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Thomson Reuters Foundation, and Newsweek.
All of them declined to publish, leaving Melzer, one of the world's foremost legal experts on torture, to publish his article on the online blogging platform Medium.

Melzer told RT he had been offered various reasons by newspaper editors for rejecting his op-ed. "Some of them said it wasn't high enough on their news agenda, some of them said it wasn't within their core area of interest," he said.

Expressing contempt for their excuses, Melzer noted that the same media executives had happily published stories about Assange "when it was about his cat and his skateboard and... allegations that he smeared excrement on the walls... But when you have a serious piece that actually tries to de-mask this public narrative and to actually show the facts below it, then they're not interested."

The "news worthiness" of Melzer's piece—written in defence of the most famous political prisoner on the planet—is not in doubt. The rejection notices only confirm the ongoing line-up of corporate and state media outlets against a publisher who exposed what they would not: evidence of US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Demasking the Torture of Julian Assange
By Nils Melzer, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture

On the occasion of the International Day in Support of Torture Victims, 26 June 2019


Alright, I thought, but surely Assange must be a hacker! But what I found is that all his disclosures had been freely leaked to him, and that no one accuses him of having hacked a single computer.
In fact, the only arguable hacking-charge against him relates to his alleged unsuccessful attempt to help breaking a password which, had it been successful, might have helped his source to cover her tracks. In short: a rather isolated, speculative, and inconsequential chain of events; a bit like trying to prosecute a driver who unsuccessfully attempted to exceed the speed-limit, but failed because their car was too weak.

Well then, I thought, at least we know for sure that Assange is a Russian spy, has interfered with US elections, and negligently caused people's deaths! But all I found is that he consistently published true information of inherent public interest without any breach of trust, duty or allegiance. Yes, he exposed war crimes, corruption and abuse, but let's not confuse national security with governmental impunity. Yes, the facts he disclosed empowered US voters to take more informed decisions, but isn't that simply democracy? Yes, there are ethical discussions to be had regarding the legitimacy of unredacted disclosures. But if actual harm had really been caused, how come neither Assange nor Wikileaks ever faced related criminal charges or civil lawsuits for just compensation?

But surely, I found myself pleading, Assange must be a selfish narcissist, skateboarding through the Ecuadorian Embassy and smearing feces on the walls? Well, all I heard from Embassy staff is that the inevitable inconveniences of his accommodation at their offices were handled with mutual respect and consideration. This changed only after the election of President Moreno, when they were suddenly instructed to find smears against Assange and, when they didn't, they were soon replaced. The President even took it upon himself to bless the world with his gossip, and to personally strip Assange of his asylum and citizenship without any due process of law.

In the end it finally dawned on me that I had been blinded by propaganda, and that Assange had been systematically slandered to divert attention from the crimes he exposed. Once he had been dehumanized through isolation, ridicule and shame, just like the witches we used to burn at the stake, it was easy to deprive him of his most fundamental rights without provoking public outrage worldwide. And thus, a legal precedent is being set, through the backdoor of our own complacency, which in the future can and will be applied just as well to disclosures by The Guardian, the New York Times and ABC News


Even so, you may say, why spend so much breath on Assange, when countless others are tortured worldwide? Because this is not only about protecting Assange, but about preventing a precedent likely to seal the fate of Western democracy. For once telling the truth has become a crime, while the powerful enjoy impunity, it will be too late to correct the course. We will have surrendered our voice to censorship and our fate to unrestrained tyranny.

This Op-Ed has been offered for publication to the Guardian, The Times, the Financial Times, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian, the Canberra Times, the Telegraph, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Thomson Reuters Foundation, and Newsweek.

None responded positively.

YouTube To Delete All Accounts That Aren't "Commercially Viable" Starting Dec. 10th

YouTube is planning to delete all accounts that aren't "commercially viable" starting December 10
Wednesday, November 13, 2019 by: Ethan Huff

Content creators everywhere are starting to panic about an upcoming policy change over at YouTube that threatens to eliminate all accounts and channels on the Google-owned video platform that are deemed to no longer be "commercially viable."

In the "Account Suspension & Termination" section of YouTube's "Terminations by YouTube for Service Changes," guidelines, the company explains that, as of December 10, 2019, "YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account's access to all or part of the Service, if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable."

In other words, if you have a YouTube channel that YouTube employees decide isn't profitable enough for Google, then the company has now granted itself the option to completely shut down your account without warning or consequence.

What this means is that YouTube content creators who've built their entire livelihoods around the platform are going to need a backup option in the event that they end up being terminated. One such option is, which you can sign up for here.

Chick-fil-A Will Stop Donating to Salvation Army, Christian Athletes Following LGBT Pressure
David Ng
18 Nov 2019

Chick-fil-A will reportedly stop donating money to charities including the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes following pressure from LGBT groups.

The company announced Monday that it is refocusing its charitable foundation to a smaller number of charities, focusing exclusively on education, homelessness, and hunger.

"Our goal is to donate to the most effective organizations in the areas of education, homelessness and hunger. No organization will be excluded from future consideration – faith based or non-faith based," Tim Tassopoulos, president and COO of Chick-fil-A, said in a statement.

Chick-fil-A's tax records shows that it gave to several Christian schools and charitable groups in 2018. None of those groups appears in a list of Chick-fil-A's 2019 charitable giving that the company made available for preview.

a redistribution that started almost 50 years ago, when Nixon decided to end the Fed's biggest nemesis - the US gold standard - launching an unprecedented increase in income growth for the "Top 1%", even as the income of the "Bottom 90%" has remained unchanged ever since 1971.
For those confused, Rabobank's Michael Every put it best: of course the Fed can redistribute wealth but "that redistribution has been from the poor and middle-class to the rich, not the other way round."

And so, over a decade after the start of the biggest monetary and wealth redistribution experiment in history intermediated by the world's central banks, we find ourselves in a place where Deutsche Bank writes that at the very top of its Top 20 risks for 2020 is none other than the "continued increase in wealth inequality, income inequality and healthcare inequality."

Scandal! UN Officials Faked Syria Gas 'Attack' Report!
Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams Posted on November 25, 2019   

A startling development in the alleged gas attack in Douma, Syria in April, 2018: Whistleblowing inspectors from the OPCW – the UN Agency that investigated the attack – have come forward to claim that the original report has been doctored and distorted to falsely blame the Syrian government. Will the mainstream media touch this scandal with a ten foot pole? Watch today's Ron Paul Liberty Report:

Jonathan Steele: New Evidence That Syrian Government Was Falsely Blamed For Chemical Attacks
Posted By Tim Hains
On Date November 26, 2019

"The Guardian" correspondent Jonathan Steele told FNC's Tucker Carlson Monday evening that there is new evidence that the Syrian government was not responsible for the chemical weapons attacks that have been used as justification for U.S. bombings in that country.

    TUCKER CARLSON: Some of us, this show, had suspicions from the outset there wasn't much evidence that this had actually happened. What do we now know?

    JONATHAN STEELE, THE GUARDIAN: We now know from this whistleblower, who prefers to call himself Alex, we know his real name and we have got proof that he did work at the OPCW [Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons].

    He was an inspector. One of the team of about nine people who went to Damascus and Douma to pick up samples on the ground and to talk to witnesses and check the whole thing out. Now, he took these samples.

    The main point is that Chlorine gas degrades rapidly in the air. So coming in two weeks later, you wouldn't find anything. What you would find is that the gas contaminates or affects other chemicals in the natural environment. So-called "Chlorinated organic chemicals." The difficulty is they exist anyway in the natural environment and water. So the crucial thing is the levels, were there higher levels of Chlorinated organic chemicals found after the alleged gas attack than there would have been in the normal environment?

When they got back to the Netherlands, to The Hague where the OPCW has its headquarters, samples were sent off to designated laboratories, then there was a weird silence developed. Nobody told the inspectors what the results of the analysis was. It was only by chance that the inspector found out through accident earlier the results would come in and there were no differences at all. There were no higher levels of Chlorinated organic chemicals in the areas where the alleged attack had happened where there is some suspicious cylinders had been found by opposition activists. So it didn't seem possible that there could have been a gas attack because the levels were just the same as in the natural environment.

Here's a Heartbreaking List of Victims Killed by Illegal Immigrants
Dems accuse GOP of 'manufacturing' border crisis during wall funding fight, but deaths like Pierce Corcoran's show otherwise

By Kathryn Blackhurst
January 11, 2019

President Donald Trump is fighting for U.S. citizens and seeking to prevent further needless deaths at the hands of illegal immigrants by enforcing immigration laws and pushing for a border wall.

But the Democrats' new talking point — as well as many members of the mainstream media's — is calling the illegal immigration and border crisis a "manufactured crisis" that the GOP designed to force the funding of Trump's border wall.
Trump asked the congressional Democrats, "How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?"

"Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands more lives will be lost if we don't act right now," Trump warned.

But Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) are still refusing to budge on border wall funding and refuse to see the need for a wall.
   Israel Has the Right and Obligation to Defend Its Border with Deadly Force
By David French

May 15, 2018 2:41 PM

Would you let people who want to kill you into your home?

One of the enduring mysteries of modern political discourse is the way in which smart people — who are not remotely anti-Semitic — impose curious, unworkable double standards on the nation of Israel. Let's take, for example, the response of many on the left to the so-called Great Return March, an effort by thousands of Gazans to storm the Israeli border.

After all, the international legal standards are clear. A nation has the right to protect the integrity of its border, and that right is supplemented by an inherent right of self-defense in the face of a hostile foreign power. Hamas — which rules Gaza — rejects Israel's right to exist and remains in a state of perpetual, declared war with Israel. Any reasonable person contemplating the consequences of a border-wall breach knows that chaos and bloodshed may result.

Leaked Chinese documents show how mass surveillance system flags Uighurs for detention camps
Published: Nov 24, 2019 9:53 p.m. ET

Papers show how China uses AI, data to control its population

The classified documents lay out the Chinese government's deliberate strategy to lock up ethnic minorities even before they commit a crime, to rewire their thoughts and the language they speak.

The papers also show how Beijing is pioneering a new form of social control using data and artificial intelligence. Drawing on data collected by mass surveillance technology, computers issued the names of tens of thousands of people for interrogation or detention in just one week.

Taken as a whole, the documents give the most significant description yet of high-tech mass detention in the 21st century in the words of the Chinese government itself. Experts say they spell out a vast system that targets, surveils and grades entire ethnicities to forcibly assimilate and subdue them -- especially Uighurs, a predominantly Muslim Turkic minority of more than 10 million people with their own language and culture.
The documents were given to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists by an anonymous source. The ICIJ verified them by examining state media reports and public notices from the time, consulting experts, cross-checking signatures and confirming the contents with former camp employees and detainees.

They consist of a notice with guidelines for the camps, four bulletins on how to use technology to target people, and a court case sentencing a Uighur Communist Party member to 10 years in prison for telling colleagues not to say dirty words, watch porn or eat without praying.

The documents were issued to rank-and-file officials by the powerful Xinjiang Communist Party Political and Legal Affairs Commission, the region's top authority overseeing police, courts and state security. They were put out under the head official at the time, Zhu Hailun, who annotated and signed some personally.


| - - - -

Anders Corr, a former American intelligence officer who acted as an advisor for the group during the research, believes that up to 40 percent of the detainment camps have not been identified by international agencies. Given that the Xinjiang region is home to about 20 million Uyghurs, the detainment of 3 million of them only goes to show the scale of Beijing's crackdown on the community.

Angela Merkel Says Freedom Of Speech Must Be Curtailed To Keep Society Free
Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that freedom of expression must be curtailed in order to keep society free.

Yes Really.

"For all those who claim that they can no longer express their opinion, I say this to them; If you express a pronounced opinion, you must live with the fact that you will be contradicted," said Merkel during a speech to the German Parliament.

"Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost, but freedom of expression has limits," she added, as some in the Bundestag could be heard voicing their disagreement.

"Those limits begin where hatred is spread, they begin where the dignity of other people is violated. This house will and must oppose extreme speech otherwise our society will no longer be the free society that it was," said Merkel.


The debate over free speech in Germany has intensified since the country accepted over a million migrants from the Middle East and North Africa from 2015 onwards.

Many Germans have found themselves hit with charges of hate speech for pointing out 'hate facts' like migrants being responsible for crimes and sexual assaults

Disarmed - people fight back with what's available .. with Unicorn horns  .
Narwhal tusk and fire extinguisher used to tackle London Bridge attacker

Members of the public, including a convicted murderer, bring terrorist to the ground
One man was armed with a fire extinguisher and another a 5ft narwhal tusk as people at the scene surrounded the attacker, who was eventually pinned to the ground.

Scotland Yard is investigating how 28-year-old Usman Khan was able to launch the attack in London Bridge, despite being known to the authorities and fitted with an electronic tag to monitor his movements. He was allowed out a year ago after serving time for his part in a plot to blow up the London Stock Exchange.
In footage that has since emerged, Khan is sprayed with a fire extinguisher, while another man tries to suppress the assailant with a narwhal tusk – a long pointed tooth from a type of whale – lunging at him. It is believed the item was pulled from the wall of Fishmongers' Hall, a Grade II-listed building on London Bridge, by a Polish chef called Łukasz.

The Vikings sold narwhal tusks as unicorn horns
Mar 21, 2017 Ian Harvey
By Medieval times, people firmly believed that unicorn horn had magical properties. It was said that a cup carved from unicorn horn would protect the person drinking from it; they could never be poisoned, as the cup neutralized any poison placed in it. The horn was also supposed to cure melancholia or depression.
Queen Elizabeth I received a carved and jewel-encrusted narwhal tusk that was worth the price of a castle (around £4-£5 million today). Sir Humphrey Gilbert, who gave her the tusk, said it was from a sea-unicorn.

Teacher Says "Parents Don't Know What's Best for Kids" to Defend Classroom Drag Queen Event
by News Division · Published November 18, 2019

While defending 'drag queens' in the school classroom, in the face of opposition from parents, one teacher got on Facebook and said, "Parents don't know what's best for their children."

A public school teacher, Anthony Lane, argued that transexual drag queens invited to Willis school district and taught boys how to apply makeup. That alone is a controversy, but here's what Lane had to say in social media that is infuriating parents:


Let's go through that quickly:

1. Education is not a customer service industry (teachers don't work for parents, according to Lane).

2. He put "parental rights" in "scare quotes," which implies they don't really exist.

3. He says parents "are given so much authority," as though it's not innate to parenthood and is something granted them.

4. He says parents should not have the final say.

5. He says that some parents don't know what's best for their kids.

6. He says parents don't have the right to enter the school for the sake of their religious, political, or moral beliefs.

But apparently, a man entering the school under a false name and false identity to sexually groom minors is totes legit.

The 'drag queen's' fake name is Lynn Adonis-Deveaux and was invited to the school by a cosmology teacher to show students how to apply make-up. This is a weird decision, considering that 'drag queens' seem to be the worst at putting on makeup.

Parents often don't know what is best
Posted on December 4, 2017

When dealing with anti-vaccers and other believers in woo, I often encounter indignant parents who, when faced with evidence and arguments that are contrary to their views, respond with, "well as a parent, only I know what is best for my child." This sentiment is pervasive among anti-vaccers, but if we think about it for even a few seconds, the absurdity of it quickly becomes clear. Giving birth clearly does not magically impart you with infinite medical knowledge. Having a child is not even remotely equivalent to earning a medical degree. It's kind of unbelievable that I even have to say that, but apparently, I do.

The problems with this claim should become obvious as soon as we start applying it to other situations. For example, purchasing a computer clearly does not endow me with instant and incomparable knowledge about anti-virus software, firewalls, etc. Similarly, no one claims to be an expert mechanic by sheer virtue of the fact that they own a car, so why would we think that simply having a child makes someone a medical expert?
In conclusion, I want to be clear that I'm not attacking parents or trying to "diminish" parenthood or any other such nonsense. I'm just trying to get people to have an accurate view of their own limitations. Having a child does not make you a medical expert nor does it make you the most qualified person to understand or assess your child's health. If it did, there would be no need for doctors or science.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Liberty Institute today sent a letter to the United States Army Trademark Licensing office urging it to allow Shields of Strength ("Shields"), a private, faith-based, business to continue producing military-themed items such as replica "dog tags" and jewelry.  The Army banned Shields after citing the "negative press" it received in connection with a complaint from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation ("MRFF").
For over 20 years Kenny Vaughan and his wife Tammie have been making Shields of Strength replica dog tags with encouraging Bible verses or references on them for service members and first responders. Shields of Strength replica dog tags bear various military-themed emblems, logos, or insignia on one side and various faith-based messages such as Scripture verses or references on the other side. To date, the Vaughn's have made over 4 million dog tags and given hundreds of thousands to the U.S. military and other ministries. During the Iraq War, they donated over 50,000 pieces a month and even fulfilled a single request for 30,000 pieces.  Each branch of the military grants licenses to vendors to feature military trademarks on products.

Earlier this year, MRFF sent a letter to the Army threatening "administrative and litigation complaints" to "compel compliance" unless the SoS stopped including religious references on its licensed products.

Mikey and MRFF,
MRFF is a lifesaver! Thank goodness that one of my fellow officers told me this organization existed...within moments of my email, Mikey personally responded with an email and provided a phone number for additional information.
My concerns?? At a command sanctioned event, the CMEO ( command equal opportunity) advisor gave a Christian-centric blessing, including references to Jesus Christ.
Obviously I was aware of the line this crossed, and needed guidance; assistance with discussing this with my CO and how to take corrective action.
This was more than just me being uncomfortable with what had happened, but every member of the command had their their religious freedom violated and good order was definitely compromised that night.
Thankfully I have Mikey and the MRFF to provide support, both emotionally and legally, to ensure leadership is made aware of the travesty that they allowed to occur.
I cannot stress enough, you ARE NOT alone in this! Make the call or send an email. You will receive help and support, I can assure you that your concerns will be heard.

The exact term is a translation of a Roman maxim, divide et impera (divide and rule).

divide and conquer
1. To gain or maintain power by generating tension among others, epecially those less powerful, so that they cannot unite in opposition. Rachel is so popular because she divides and conquers all of her minions and makes sure they all dislike each other.

Diversity is our Strength
London Mayor Sadiq Khan: "One of Our Strengths Is Our Diversity"
Dec 8, 2019 10:00 am By Hugh Fitzgerald

Sadiq Khan, the Muslim mayor of London, and a tireless apologist for Islam, had his usual reaction to the latest murders by Muslim terrorists in "the greatest city in the world." For Sadiq Khan, the defense and promotion of "diversity" has become an obsession. Last summer Sadiq Khan earned the outrage of many Londoners for his expensive focus on this "diversity"; they discovered he now spends annually close to $2 million on"diversity" bosses for London Transport, far more than he does on employees devoted to keeping fares down, or on improving safety in the system.
Khan's latest praise of "diversity":

    London mayor Sadiq Khan told reporters that diversity is one of the British capital's strengths in the wake of the London Bridge attack, and that all great cities are targets for terrorists.

    "Look, I'm mayor of the greatest city in the world, and one of our strengths is our diversity," he told reporters shortly the attack by Usman Khan, a convicted radical Islamic terrorist who had been freed from prison on a tag after serving less than half of a 16-year term, which left two dead and three injured.
This insistence that "diversity is our strength" is the byword not just of Sadiq Khan, but of many European politicians, and above all, of Chancellor Merkel. It is stated as a given; no evidence need be offered. But why should we accept this assertion? Is all "diversity" a "source of strength"? What kind of "strength"? Start asking these questions, and you will not get a coherent answer, but merely self-satisfied repetition of the mantra that brooks of no disagreement.
So according to Mayor Khan, terrorism is something you've just got to accept, it's the price we all pay for the privilege of living in a great city, we just have to prepare ourselves, there's nothing much else to be done.

Nolte: Greta Thunberg Says We Will 'Put World Leaders Against the Wall'
John Nolte14 Dec 2019

Cuba Archive has documented dozens of people, including many children, killed attempting to escape Cuba with Raúl in a leading role. His Air Force carried out the Canimar River Massacre of July 6, 1980, when dozens were murdered. Many more unarmed civilians are believed to have suffered similar fate at the hand of special Air Force units dedicated to spotting and sinking rafts. Like countless others, on January 19, 1994, two young men -Iskander Maleras and Luis Angel Valverde- were killed by Cuban border guards stationed around the U.S. Naval Base at Guantánamo operating under Raúl's direct orders to shoot. He rewarded their deed with medals and promotions.

As Defense Minister, Raúl Castro is responsible for war crimes in and out of Cuba.

Time's "Scold of the Year," Greta Thunberg, told a crowd in Italy that "we will make sure we put world leaders against the wall" if they do not do what she tells them to do.

On her way home, the 16-year-old Swedish eco-activist and chronic truant stopped to address a Fridays for Future gathering in Turin, Italy, at which she went the full-Fidel Castro.

"Unfortunately, we probably already know the outcome. World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities but we have to make sure they cannot do that. We will make sure that we put them against the wall and they will have to do their job to protect our futures," she said, according to the Daily Mail.

"Against the wall" is fairly common jargon in revolutions,
especially youthful revolutions, and the accepted translation means executions — lots and lots of executions, specifically firing squads, where the old leaders are permanently removed by fresh-faced revolutionaries.

Paris Sees Record Traffic Jams as City Enters 12th Day of Anti-Macron Reform Protests
Breitbart London
16 Dec 2019

PARIS (AP) – French transport strikes against a planned overhaul of the pension system entered their twelfth day Monday as French president Emmanuel Macron's government remains determined to push ahead with its plans.

Authorities measured a record traffic jam of 630 kilometers (391 miles) of traffic in the morning in the Paris region, where only two Metro lines, using automated trains with no drivers, were fully running. The other 14 metro lines were closed or only very partially running.

Most regional and national trains were at a standstill. International train routes also suffered disruptions.

Truck drivers launched a separate protest movement Monday morning, staging road blockages across France to demand better salaries and working conditions.

Macron said last week he wants the government to "continue the work" on the pension changes, which include raising the retirement age to 64 and ending special privileges for some workers.

Teargas fired at Yellow Vest protesters in Paris
Published on Dec 12, 2019

(7 Dec 2019) Paris police on Saturday clashed with yellow vest activists joining a wave of protest actions against the government's overhaul of France's national retirement system.
A few thousand yellow vest protesters marched from the Finance Ministry complex on the Seine River through southeast Paris, pushing their year-old demands for economic justice — and adding the retirement reform to their list of grievances.
Most marchers were peaceful but some threw projectiles or pushed riot officers, prompting repeated bursts of tear gas from police.
The marchers appear to be emboldened by the biggest national demonstrations in years on Thursday that kicked off a mass strike-and-protest movement against President Emmanuel Macron's redesign of the pension system.
"He (Macron) needs to stop giving gifts to the rich people, and give people means to be able to have a decent life," said one Yellow Vest protester who was attending the march.

$64 Million In Jewelry Stolen From British Model Tamara Ecclestone In Brazen Heist

Tue, 12/17/2019 - 04:15

An estimated $64 million in jewelry has been stolen from British model and socialite Tamara Ecclestone, the daughter of former Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone, according to NBC News.

The 35-year-old has been left "angry and shaken" after burglars reportedly evaded both 24-hour security teams which patrol the west London street known as "Billionaire Row," as well as Ecclestone's own security officers, according to the report.

Ecclestone lives on Kensington Palace Gardens alongside notable neighbors, which include French and Russian ambassadors, as well as the Kensington Palace home of Prince William and his wife Kate.

Immigrants Seeking Driver's Licenses Line up Across New York
Immigrants lined up around the block at some Department of Motor Vehicle offices Monday as the state began issuing driver's licenses that don't require applicants to prove they are in the country legally.

By MARINA VILLENEUVE, Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bundled in winter jackets, immigrants lined up at some Department of Motor Vehicle offices throughout New York as the state began issuing driver's licenses Monday that don't require applicants to prove they are in the country legally.

Hundreds of New Yorkers waited outside motor vehicle agencies in New York City, while several upstate clerks said they saw few applicants. License applicants without a valid Social Security number can now submit multiple alternative forms of ID that includes valid passports and driver's licenses issued in other countries. State DMV officials said they adjusted staffing levels and updated their reservation system in anticipation of such large crowds Monday.

"This is a major step forward for all New Yorkers as we keep building New York to live up to its full potential of equity, opportunity, and justice," said state Sen. Luis Sepúlveda last week. "We also look forward to the significant economic and safety benefits the law will bring to communities across our state."

At least one county clerk in upstate New York opposed to the law said he was turning away applicants. Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola, one of several clerks who has sued to block New York's law said his office had turned away an applicant who wanted a driver's permit but lacked a social security number.

"I was pretty adamant that I was going to have a tough time doing it out of my office," Merola said. "That might have discouraged people coming to my office."

An estimated 265,000 immigrants without legal documents are expected to get driver's licenses within three years, more than half of them in New York City, according to the Fiscal Policy Institute.

Oxycotin is not mentioned ... Thanks Bill !
EXCLUSIVE: Billionaire pharma couple found 'murdered' on the railings round their indoor swimming pool discussed giving their fortune AWAY by backing Bill Gates' 'giving pledge' days before their deaths

Barry Sherman, 75, was found dead beside his wife Honey, 69, at their $5.25million (CAD$6.9million) home in Toronto two years ago
The case was initially treated as murder-suicide, before police – under pressure from his family – said they believed it was a 'targeted' double murder has learned that shortly before his death, he spoke of signing up to The Giving Pledge, a campaign backed by Warren Buffett and the Gates
The campaign sees the world's richest promise to give away 'the majority of their wealth to philanthropy'

Honey had also planned to change her will just three weeks before the couple died, but no will has been found
'I think that when he looked in the eyes of his killer he was just overwhelmed with a sense of betrayal,' said business associate Frank D'Angelo

By Laura Collins, Chief Investigative Reporter In Toronto, Canada
Published: 10:31 EST, 19 December 2019 | Updated: 11:05 EST, 19 December 2019

A billionaire found with his wife hanging from the railings around their swimming pool confided, just before their deaths, that he was thinking of pledging to give away the bulk of his fortune, can disclose.

Sherman ran a generic drugs manufacturing firm, Apotex Inc, which made him a billionaire by producing versions of drugs such as anti-depressant Paxil, cardio-vascular medication, Crestor, and a generic version of the cholesterol lowering Lipitor which saved provincial health programs in Canada $608million (CAD$800million) a year.
He and his wife Honey gave generously to causes throughout their lives, including $7.6million (CAD$10million) to Mount Sinai Hospitals, as much as $189,000 (CAD$249,000) to the Sick Kids Foundation and $44.8million (CAD$50million) to the United Jewish Appeal.

| - - - -
Bernard Charles "Barry" Sherman, CM[5] (February 25, 1942 – December 15, 2017) was a Canadian businessman and philanthropist who was chairman and CEO of Apotex Inc. With an estimated net worth of US$3.2 billion at the time of his death, according to Forbes, Sherman was the 12th-wealthiest Canadian.[4][6] Another publication, Canadian Business, stated his fortune at CAN$4.77 billion, ranking him the 15th richest in Canada.[6]

... got his start in the pharmaceutical business in the 1960s, when the estate of his uncle Louis Lloyd Winter let him run Empire Laboratories, the late uncle's drug company. This eventually led Sherman to form Apotex, where he earned a reputation among both competitors and government regulators for extreme combativeness, often including litigation. His four cousins, who were supposed to have received 5 percent stakes in Empire, later sued Sherman unsuccessfully over his sale of Empire.
Sherman was born into a Jewish family in Toronto[9] to Herbert Dick "Hyman" Sherman (1906–1952),[10] a business partner for a zipper company,[1] and Sara "Sarah" Sherman (née Winter; 1910–1971),[11] an occupational therapist after her husband's death.[12] His grandparents from both sides had fled persecution of Jews in Russia and Poland
The Empire Group of Companies was purchased by Louis Winter's nephew Bernard (Barry) Sherman on August 23, 1967, in conjunction with his high school friend, Joel Ulster. To facilitate the corporate acquisition, Barry and Joel Ulster (Sherman and Ulster Limited) offered five percent equity options to each of the four children and a fifteen year royalty on four of its patented products.[3] Litigation is currently before the courts [4] concerning the purchase of the corporate assets and brands from the Winter children's estate, as Sherman and his partner never paid the royalties nor provided the promised equity in the businesses.[5] The executor, Royal Trust, now a division of Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), processed this transaction on behalf of the infant beneficiaries of Beverley and Louis Winter. Barry Sherman would eventually launch Apotex Inc. in 1974.

How a little-known patent sparked Canada's opioid crisis

The untold story of how a single pill sparked Canada's opioid crisis, and ignited one of the biggest pharmaceutical battles in Canadian history

The drug was awarded Canadian Patent No. 2,098,738. Its official title in the paperwork was listed as: controlled release oxycodone compositions. But Purdue called it OxyContin.

It would go on to become a blockbuster drug – the most popular long-acting prescription painkiller in Canada for more than a decade, and one of the most lucrative pharmaceutical inventions to hit the market.

In 2009, Purdue was again defending Patent '738 against a bid by Apotex, the Toronto-based generic-drug giant. Apotex called Purdue's claim that OxyContin reduced the number of dosages needed to kill pain, "a material misstatement made with deceptive intent."
Purdue settled with Apotex and Ranbaxy, but the details of the agreements were not made public. Purdue told The Globe it would not comment on those settlements.

The expiry of Patent '783 in 2012 spawned two events that would cause the already festering opioid crisis to get worse. First, when OxyContin was pulled from the market and replaced with OxyNeo, it sent those dependent on it – both abusers and patients who became addicted –struggling for something to replace it.

Just as that was happening, six drug makers in Canada began producing generic versions, filling the void with an abundant, cheaper supply.

Purdue saw its share of the market shrink, as the industry shifted from brand name OxyContin to the readily available generics.

Toronto billionaire's orphaned cousins seek piece of Apotex fortune
By Jacques GallantLegal Affairs Reporter
Sat., April 1, 2017

It's the family drama that one of Canada's wealthiest men has been trying to brush away for a decade.

Try as he might, Barry Sherman, the billionaire founder of generic drug giant Apotex, continues to face down his cousins in a lawsuit that alleges he owed them a "fiduciary duty" stemming from his purchase of their late father's family of drug companies back in 1967.
They are the "Winter orphans," four boys, three of them now grown men and one who has passed away. Their father, Louis Winter, was the founder of Empire Laboratories Ltd. and died in 1965, when the boys were still very young, just weeks before their mother, Beverley, died.

Adopted by a Toronto couple, they faced many hardships into adulthood, some turning to drugs.

In a statement of claim filed in Superior Court, the plaintiffs say that following their parents' deaths, cousin Barry, who had worked for Louis Winter, and some associates acquired Empire in 1967 for $450,000 through a holding company.

They promised in an option that the Winter children would have the right to work for the company after the age of 21 and buy five per cent of the issued shares, according to the statement of claim.

Flu spread by "migrants"  or the flu shots themselves - that can't be true ...  Oh "get your flu shot "
Virus shedding is common following FluMist — and can transmit flu
CDC Funded Study Shows the Vaccinated Shed 6.3 Times More Flu Virus, Just by Breathing
The injectable flu vaccine DOES NOT SHED!, in the sense that the vaccinated person spreads the virus from the vaccine. The live virus vaccine can shed, though this article does not discuss that topic. Those vaccinated, when infected with the flu, SHED/SPREAD more of the naturally acquired infection. I hope this helps. View this blog/video for more clarification.
the National Academy of Sciences proves that people who are vaccinated spread the virus more, are not protected, and prior vaccination is harming people's immunity!

Does the flu vaccine protect you or those around you? Well according to the research, the opposite would be true. The findings of the study found that those individuals who had received the flu vaccine were "shedding" 6.3 times more virus than the unvaccinated!

Higher viral shedding means that those who were vaccinated were breathing out more influenza virus and would be spreading it more than the unvaccinated. So when doctors, health departments, or health "authorities" like the CDC push the vaccine by saying things like "the vaccine protects you and those around you," "everyone needs the vaccine because of 'herd' immunity," or "you have to get the vaccine so you protect the very young, the elderly and the very weak/cancer patients etc.," they would actually be lying.

6.3 times more aerosol shedding means that those who were vaccinated were spreading more virus into the air around them just by breathing when compared to those who had not received the vaccine that same year and/or the flu vaccine from the previous year. The implications of this finding now show that those who are vaccinated pose a greater risk to the immune compromised, i.e. cancer patients, the elderly and the very young and that the unvaccinated spread the disease less and protect others better! In essence, the vaccine does the exact opposite of what people have been told and explains why we are seeing more and more people get sick earlier each year and more people die from the flu.
Millions sickened across America as flu season ramps up

The flu virus continues to spread across the U.S. with millions of illnesses estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to the CDC, an estimated 3.7 million people have had the flu already this year with 32,000 requiring hospitalization.

Nearly 2,000 people, including 19 children, have died so far, claimed the CDC.

There is elevated flu activity in nearly every state and 30 states report the virus as widespread.

Experts are encouraging people to get the flu shot if they still haven't. The vaccine is safe for anyone over 6 months of age, asserts the CDC.

[ people with ther shot are shedding the virus !!! ---->>>> ]

After getting the shot, it is recommended people cover their mouths and noses when coughing and sneezing and washing hands regularly with soap and water.

Doctors protested Border Patrol to offer flu vaccines to detained migrants. They left in handcuffs and without answers.

Katie Shepherd
Dec. 12, 2019 at 2:42 a.m. PST

As police handcuffed two men in doctor's coats and scrubs who were lying on the ground in protest of the government's refusal to offer vaccinations to migrants held in detention, protesters gathered this week in front of U.S. Customs and Border Protection headquarters in San Diego sang in a chorus of constant chants.
Sparked by the deaths of three migrant children in the last year due to complications from the flu while in federal custody, the three-day protest attracted left-leaning immigration activists and volunteer doctors, including four other demonstrators who were arrested on Tuesday, who offered to help vaccinate willing detainees for the winter.
"Of course Border Patrol isn't going to let a random group of radical political activists show up and start injecting people with drugs," the Department of Homeland Security's press secretary tweeted this week.
In a statement, CBP told The Post that the agency has never vaccinated migrants held in its custody, in part because most people will either be released or transferred to another federal agency within 72 hours of entering a Border Patrol facility. Long-term detention centers run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Health and Human Services do vaccinate immigrants housed in their facilities.

"It has never been a CBP practice to administer vaccines and this not a new policy," an agency spokeswoman said. "We would encourage those who wish to volunteer medical services to go to shelters and NGO facilities, both in the U.S. and in Mexico, to donate their time and services."

STD superbug running rampant after mutating into incurable form

Shigellosis is less well-known than chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis but a new strain of the disease is rapidly taking hold
ByMichael MoranAudience Writer
10:36, 21 DEC 2019

An antibiotic-resistant superbug that can be spread either though food poisoning or sexual contact is running rampant throughout Australia.

The disease, called shigellosis, is caused by the Shigella bacterium. It's common around the world, and causes bloody diarrhoea, high temperature fever, and severe stomach cramps.
Cases of sexually transmitted shigellosis have been spreading much more virulently among gay men, and the drug-resistant form is becoming increasingly common.

No existing antibiotics have any effect on this new, more aggressive form of the disease
This comes just a year after a new drug-resistant form of widespread STD gonorrhoea was identified by Public Health England.

The World Health Assembly, the decision-making body of the World Health Organisation, has launched a campaign to increasing awareness of the growing menace of drug-resistant infections.

Shattering The Overton Window
Authored by Robert Gore via,
Aim your rocks at glass houses.

The Overton window is the range of policies politically acceptable to the mainstream population at a given time. It is also known as the window of discourse. The term is named after Joseph P. Overton, who stated that an idea's political viability depends mainly on whether it falls within this range, rather than on politicians' individual preferences. According to Overton, the window frames the range of policies that a politician can recommend without appearing too extreme to gain or keep public office given the climate of public opinion at that time.

Heaven forbid anyone appear too extreme. Our rulers keep discourse safely within the Overton window by allowing debate about the details of what the government does or doesn't do. However, those who question the necessity of particular government agencies or programs, or government in general, are beyond-the-pale extremists and cast into the Abyss of the Unacceptable, one zip code over from the Abyss of the Deplorable.

We're not yet to the point where shattering questions are asked about central banks or other government or government-aligned institution, but we're well into stage one: the realization that the status quo is not working for anyone but a small sliver of the population.

Stage two has also launched: recognition that promoters of the status quo lie incessantly.

So too has stage three: things keep getting worse.

Gore Vidal on the "United States of Amnesia," 9/11, the 2000 Election and the War in Iraq


GORE VIDAL: The United States is not a normal country. We are under—we're a homeland now, under military surveillance and military control. The president asked the Congress right after 9/11 not to conduct a major investigation, "as it might deter our search for terrorism, wherever it may be in the world." So Congress obediently rolled over.
I realized the country has totally changed, that the government is not responsive to the people, either in protecting us from something like 9/11, which they should have done, could have done, did not do, and then, when it did happen, to investigate, investigate, investigate. So I wrote two little books, one called Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, in which I try to go into the why Osama bin Laden, if it were he, or whoever it was, why it was done. And I wrote another one, Dreaming War, on why we were not protected at 9/11, which ordinarily would have led to the impeachment of the president of the United States who had allowed it to happen. They said they had no information. Since then, every day the New York Times prints another mountain of people who said they had warned the government, they had warned the government. President Putin of Russia, he had warned us. President Mubarak of Egypt, he had warned us. Three members of Mossad claim that they had come to the United States to warn us that sometime in September something unpleasant might come out of the sky in our direction. Were we defended? No, we were not defended. Has this ever been investigated? No, it hasn't. There was some attempt at the midterm election. There was a pro forma committee in Congress, which has done nothing thus far. What are we? Three years later. This is shameful.
This government is culpable of, if nothing less, negligence. Why were we not protected? With all the air bases, fighter planes, up and down the Eastern Seaboard, not one of them went aloft while the hijackings took place. Finally, two from Otis Field in Massachusetts arrived at the Twin Towers, I think at the time the second one was hit. If anybody had been thinking, they would have gone on to Washington to try and prevent the attack on the Pentagon. They went back to Otis, back to Massachusetts. So I ask these questions, which Congress should ask, does not ask, which the press should ask, but it's too frightened. It's a reign of terror now.

China nears completion of its GPS competitor, increasing the potential for internet Balkanization
Jonathan Shieber@jshieber / 4:45 am PST • December 28, 2019

Friday, China announced that it would complete its competitor to the U.S.-operated global positioning system network by the first half of next year, increasing the pace of its decoupling from U.S. technologies.

China's Beidou network of satellites — named after the "Big Dipper" constellation — will be the first service to compete with the U.S. Air Force's global positioning system and already has a potentially massive user base as more than 70% of Chinese smartphones are now ready to use its positioning services, according to a report in the Nikkei Asian Review.

The Beidou network is integral to China's long-term plans to dominate the next generation of telecommunications services and — coupled with China's advances in fifth-generation wireless communications technology — represents a significant challenge to the U.S. hegemony over telecommunications infrastructure.

China plans to launch by June 2020 the final two satellites needed to make the Beidou system operational, according to a statement from the project's director, Ran Chengqi quoted by The Associated Press. ...

So how do you think they launder billions of dollars in drug money ? SWIFT ....
But you need to be in the gang to get away with it ....
SWIFT Transaction Leads to Money Laundering Charges Linked to Drug Trafficking Ring

A Colombian was charged with money laundering last week for allegedly receiving some $1.5 million USD in payments related to cocaine trafficking in his bank account through the international SWIFT interbank transaction system, according to the country's attorney general.

In a statement, the office of the attorney general said that Eudes Javier Nieto Clavijo, who was apprehended in the city of Bucaramanga, was involved in a drug-dealing operation that shipped narcotics to the Caribbean in speed boats. It has evidence that his bank account received funds via SWIFT from the United States, Spain, China, and Hong Kong, according to law enforcement.

The "sum was received, hidden, and later incorporated into the national financial system under the auspices of a structure that facilitated the laundering of illegal assets," stated the attorney general's office..


Colombian authorities believe that Nieto is linked to a large drug-trafficking network that has been operating for more than a decade. At least 84 alleged members of the organization have been captured and extradited since 2005, according to the attorney general.

The Australian anti-money laundering (AML) regulator's case against Westpac for more than 23 million alleged reporting breaches will shine an international spotlight on SWIFT data reporting avoidance.

SWIFT manoeuvres

The banking sector has a number of dark secrets. One is that many institutions around the world put complex systems in place following the 2009 SWIFT reporting changes to ensure they could continue to facilitate lucrative transactions in the shadows. The U.S. Department of Treasury's recent case against UniCredit, for example, found that the Italian-headquartered bank had sought specific advice from consultants on circumventing the SWIFT reporting obligations.

The settlement agreement said UniCredit engaged a German consulting firm, which helped it "construct the evasive process by which UniCredit AG carried out this illegal conduct, apparently conducted a compliance analysis at the AG NY Branch in or about 2006."

In internal emails bank staff made it clear that this was designed to mask payments to "sensitive" countries, such as Sudan, Syria, Iran, Cuba, Myanmar, Belarus, North Korea. The aim was to ensure there was no data in field 72 of the SWIFT message for transactions involving a U.S. bank.

"Over the past 20 years I have been concerned that not enough is being done to readily identify cross-border funds transfers, whether the funds arise from corrupt practices, drugs, fraud, people smuggling and trafficking, or any other serious crime.
since the early 1990s that we have 'left the door open' to sophisticated criminals to launder money through the global financial system and that we need to start to close that door by having ready access to these transactions in real time," Jensen said in an article for Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence.

By Nathan Lynch,, 22 November 2019
The bank was intentionally avoiding oversight from the fearsome U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

As the AUSTRAC statement of claim has demonstrated, however, some banks had developed an even simpler way to avoid submitting SWIFT data. With its LitePay and ACM products for international cross-border payments, Westpac could bypass the SWIFT rails completely.

Australia Confronts Arson as Bushfires Burn
By Phil Mercer
November 29, 2019 09:12 AM

SYDNEY - A volunteer firefighter in Australia has been accused of arson following an unprecedented bushfire crisis.

Fire chiefs say the alleged arson south of Sydney was the "ultimate betrayal" of emergency crews risking their lives on the front line.  They said the accusations could tarnish the reputation of the entire service.  Investigators believe the teenage suspect lit the blazes and then later returned as part of his duties as a volunteer firefighter.

Dozens of fires continue to burn in the states of Queensland and New South Wales, where more than 50 people have been charged with arson since August. Another 150 suspects are being interviewed by investigators.

More than 2 million hectares of land, including vast areas of forest, have been scorched in eastern Australia's bushfire crisis.   Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and six people have died.

On red-hot days, police try to track arsonists – but firebugs still strike
Nov 21, 2019

Around the country, police are ramping up their surveillance of known arsonists as the threat of bushfire escalates.

But many firebugs go undetected.

More than 85 per cent of the blazes burning across the nation are being caused by humans – and within that figure, over half are deliberately lit or suspicious, data from the Productivity Commission shows.

Arson is a disturbingly common crime: In NSW alone, 54 people have been charged with bushfire-related offences since August.

Council asks billionaire Elon Musk to help build rail trail
Updated Saturday, 5 May, 2018 by

THE future of the Tweed's Rail Trail could be placed in the hands of visionary billionaire Elon Musk, if Tweed Shire Council gets its wish.

Council has written to the pioneer of driverless cars company Tesla to ask for his help in building the 24km rail trail.

In a letter to Mr Musk, Mayor Katie Milne asked the entrepreneur, who has spent time in the Northern Rivers attending music festivals, whether he had any "thoughts or ideas for transport options for regional areas."

Cr Milne pleaded the shire's case that a solution to the public transport crisis was needed, after trains were decommissioned 14 years ago.

Amazon to offer broadband access from orbit with 3,236-satellite 'Project Kuiper' constellation
by Alan Boyle on April 4, 2019 at 6:00 am
Project Kuiper's first public step took the form of three sets of filings made with the International Telecommunication Union last month by the Federal Communications Commission on behalf of Washington, D.C.-based Kuiper Systems LLC. The ITU oversees global telecom satellite operations and eventually will have to sign off on Kuiper's constellation.

The filings lay out a plan to put 3,236 satellites in low Earth orbit — including 784 satellites at an altitude of 367 miles (590 kilometers); 1,296 satellites at a height of 379 miles (610 kilometers); and 1,156 satellites in 391-mile (630-kilometer) orbits.

In response to GeekWire's inquiries, Amazon confirmed that Kuiper Systems is actually one of its projects.

"Project Kuiper is a new initiative to launch a constellation of low Earth orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world," an Amazon spokesperson said in an emailed statement. "This is a long-term project that envisions serving tens of millions of people who lack basic access to broadband internet. We look forward to partnering on this initiative with companies that share this common vision."


The United Nations estimates that almost 4 billion people around the globe are underserved when it comes to internet access, which is becoming increasingly important as the world grows more connected.

Some of the world's best-known companies have been working for years on plans to serve that market.

Last year, SpaceX launched the first two prototype satellites for its Starlink broadband data constellation, which is projected to grow to nearly 12,000 satellites in low Earth orbit. SpaceX's facility in Redmond, Wash., is playing the lead role in the development effort. SpaceX's billionaire founder, Elon Musk, has said he expects revenue from the Starlink internet service to help fund his vision of building a city on Mars.
OneWeb had its first six broadband satellites launched in February, and plans to put hundreds more in place over the next year or two. Last month, the consortium announced a $1.25 billion funding round, led by SoftBank Group, to support the ramp-up in operations.
Telesat put its first prototype broadband satellite in low Earth orbit last year, and plans to have hundreds more launched to provide first-generation broadband services in the early 2020s.
Facebook, Boeing and Luxembourg-based LeoSat also have laid out plans for space-based internet access.

Top U.N. Scientist Admits Vaccines Killing People During 'Vaccine Safety Summit'
January 10, 2020 Constitutional DrunkUncategorized

A top scientists for the United Nations admitted in leaked video that vaccines are dangerous and are killing some individuals, just days after assuring the public that vaccines were one of the safest tools humanity has.

Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, the Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization,
admitted that some vaccines are killing people during the WHO Global Vaccine Safety Summit last December in Geneva, Switzerland.
"I don't think we can overemphasize the fact we really don't have very good safety monitoring systems in many countries and this adds to the miscommunication and the misapprehensions," Swaminathan said.

"Because we're not able to give very good clear-cut answers when people ask questions about the deaths that have occurred due to a particular vaccine, and this always gets blown up in the media."

"One should be able to give a very factual account of what exactly is happening, what the cause of deaths are, but in most cases there's some obfuscation at that level and therefore there's less and less trust in the system," she added.

This scientist's admission begs the question: if vaccines are killing people, why does the establishment push them as completely safe and constantly demonize people who question their safety?

Alex Jones explains in the following video the globalists' diabolical plan to use vaccines as a means of population reduction and control to usher in their A.I. takeover:

Anne and Susan Wojcicki: Meet the Self-Made Millionaires | Money
23andMe lays off 100 people as DNA test sales decline, CEO says she was 'surprised' to see market turn
Published Thu, Jan 23 2020

Key Points

23andMe is laying off 100 people, as consumer DNA tests are down.
CEO Anne Wojcicki didn't have a clear explanation for that, but cited a variety of factors, including both recession fears and privacy concerns.
Wojcicki said she anticipated that DNA testing would explode when she co-founded the business in 2007, but is now looking ahead to a retracting market.

Home DNA-testing company 23andMe is laying off about 100 people, or 14% of its staff, on Thursday, in the wake of declining sales.

The layoffs include the operations teams, which were focused on the company's growth and scaling efforts, as well as other teams. In the coming months, the company plans to tighten its focus on the direct-to-consumer business and its therapeutics arm while scaling back its clinical studies arm.

CEO Anne Wojcicki told CNBC she's been "surprised" to see the market starting to turn.

Wojcicki has theories, but she doesn't have clear proof for why consumers are shying away from getting tests that reveal their percentage of Irish heritage, propensity for a favorite ice cream flavor, or whether they have a limited set of variants that are associated with breast cancer. Either way, she notes, she's downsizing because it's "what the market is ready for."

"This has been slow and painful for us," she said.
The first clear signs of a slowdown in the space came last summer when Francis deSouza, chief executive of Illumina, maker of DNA sequencing machines, noted in its earnings call that the entire segment was down. DeSouza didn't share an explanation, but said his company is taking a "cautious view" of the market for ancestry and health tests. Illumina's customers include Ancestry and 23andMe.

Early in his career, he worked at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center and then in management consulting.[11][12] DeSouza co-founded and served as CEO of Flash Communications, a provider of corporate instant messaging that was acquired by Microsoft in 1998.[13]


Following Microsoft's acquisition of Flash, deSouza joined Microsoft and became a product unit manager, where he led the team responsible for the development of the company's enterprise real-time collaboration offerings, including instant messaging, chat, Voice over IP and NetMeeting.[14]
In February 2018 deSouza was elected to the Board of Directors of The Walt Disney Company.[27]

Making A Fortune: 19 Million Public Employees Across America Cost Taxpayers Nearly $1 Trillion
Authored by Adam Andrzejewski via,

For the first time in history, 19 million public employee salaries at every level of government across America have been mapped and posted online.

The work of our auditors at tells a compelling story: Public service is supposed to be about serving the people. However, the good intentions of America's 19 million public employees come at a very high price for the people – nearly $1 trillion. In many cases, taxpayers generously fund these employee salaries.

Our online database is free to use  and includes most employees within the federal, state, and local governments. You can search in your backyard or across the nation. Find out just how much public employees made last year. The salary records include name, salary, position title, and employer for 2017.

The data is full of stunning examples.

    Tree trimmers in Chicago lopped off $106,000.
    New York City school janitors cleaned off $165,000 while out earning the principals at $135,000.
    Lifeguards in Los Angeles County, California, made up to $365,000.
    In the small school district in Southlake, Texas (8,000 students), the school superintendent earned $420,000.

Help the reform-minded mayors, school superintendents, legislators and members of Congress by finding the waste, overspending, and bloated government in your very own neighborhood.

Search our interactive map of the top 2 million most highly compensated public employees across America. Just click a pin (your ZIP code) and scroll down to see the results that render in the chart beneath the map. Click here to access the map below.

Last year, we found 1.7 million public employees earned $100,000 or more. The vast majority – 1.3 million six-figure earners – worked at the state and local levels. There were 105,000 local and state government employees out-earning every governor of the 50 states at a salary of $190,000 or more.

( (

Across the country, some of the largest salaries were paid out to athletic coaches at public universities. The retired football coach at University of Oregon received a $558,689 annual pension, and the fired Arizona State football coach got a $15 million payout. Nick Saban, at the University of Alabama, made $11 million.

Before complaining about Washington, D.C., people must insist on good government where they live. The people have the power to hold local politicians accountable for tax and spend decisions. Our mission is to make this information available to citizens and policymakers.

Government payrolls are the No. 1 issue affecting every service: public safety, healthcare, and welfare. Pay, perks, and pension benefits for public employees must be a priority in budgeting and deserve a rigorous, fact-based public debate.


Now, it's up to you to call out waste and inefficiency in your government bodies. Use our interactive map and search by ZIP code, the top 2 million public employees making more than $95,000. Or, use our website to see all 19 million salary records.

The Mormon Church Amassed $100 Billion. It Was the Best-Kept Secret in the Investment World.
A look inside the vast but little-known fund of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: 'We've tried to be somewhat anonymous.'
By Ian Lovett and
Rachael Levy
Updated Feb. 8, 2020 5:07 pm ET

For more than half a century, the Mormon Church quietly built one of the world's largest investment funds. Almost no one outside the church knew about it.

Some of that mystery evaporated late last year when a former employee revealed in a whistleblower complaint with the Internal Revenue Service that the fund, called Ensign Peak Advisors, had stockpiled $100 billion. The whistleblower also alleged that the church had improperly used some Ensign Peak funds. Officials of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, colloquially known as the Mormon Church, denied those claims.

They also declined to comment on how much money their investment fund controls. "We've tried to be somewhat anonymous," Roger Clarke, the head of Ensign Peak, said from the firm's fourth-floor office, above a Salt Lake City food court. Ensign Peak doesn't appear in that building's directory.
Its assets did total roughly $80 billion to $100 billion as of last year, some of the former employees said. That is at least double the size of Harvard University's endowment and as large as the size of SoftBank's Vision Fund, the world's largest tech-investment fund. Its holdings include $40 billion of U.S. stock, timberland in the Florida panhandle and investments in prominent hedge funds such as Bridgewater Associates LP, according to some current and former fund employees.


Mr. Clarke said he believed church leaders were concerned that public knowledge of the fund's wealth might discourage tithing.

"Paying tithing is more of a sense of commitment than it is the church needing the money," Mr. Clarke said. "So they never wanted to be in a position where people felt like, you know, they shouldn't make a contribution."
Some members are now asking why details about the fund have been tightly held for so long, what the money is for, and whether tithing so much to the church should still be the standard practice.
A majority of the money held by Ensign Peak is from returns on existing investments and not member donations, according to Mr. Clarke. In recent years, the fund has gained about 7% annually, he said.

The firm doesn't borrow money–the church warns members against going into debt. It also doesn't invest in industries that Mormons consider objectionable—including alcohol, caffeinated beverages, tobacco and gambling. Mr. Clarke said the fund has pulled some of its money from an investment firm called Fisher Investments after the founder, Ken Fisher, made remarks last year that Mr. Fisher later called "inappropriate." A spokesman for Fisher declined to comment.

The Untold Story of How The Mormon Mafia Built Las Vegas Into What It Is Today 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has a fascinating history. From its founding in the 1820s by Joseph Smith to the its modern-day prevalence in Utah, the religion continues to intrigue believers and skeptics alike. Aspects of Mormonism are shrouded in mystery to outsiders - but would you believe that there are rumored ties between the mob and the LDS church?

Before your imagination goes into overdrive, know that the Mormon church isn't rife with organized crime. True, there are bizarre tales of Mormons and Howard Hughes; the eccentric billionaire's business holdings were controlled by the so-called "Mormon Mafia." And then there's the religion's roots in Las Vegas - Mormons built the first permanent settlements in the area, and were largely responsible for creating its mega casinos. But for all its ties to Sin City, the Mormon Church is actually as anti-mob as you can get.
Steve Wynn Was Financed By Mormon Interests

In the late 1960s, Steve Wynn was a small-time investor in real estate and a minority owner of the Frontier Hotel. E. Parry Thomas became a mentor to Wynn, and helped him acquire his first big Vegas property, the downtown Golden Nugget Casino.

Wynn went on to acquire or build many of the city's most prominent casinos, including The Mirage, Bellagio, and Treasure Island. He remains one of the most successful and high-profile figures in the international gambling industry.
Mormons Found A Workaround For Sinful Gambling

Traditionally, Mormons have opposed gambling as acquiring "money from the person who may be possessed of it without giving value received in return." But that hasn't prevented Mormons from helping turn Las Vegas into the largest gaming operation in the United States. In fact, many Mormons work in casinos in Las Vegas; the Church's stance seems to be "don't touch the dice."

Two significant characters in "Casino" are Latter-day Saints, or based partially on real-life Latter-day Saints. One character ("John Nance") is called an "old Mormon" by Joe Pesci's character "Nicky" approximately 8 minutes, 28 seconds after the start of the film. Another character ("Senator Harrison Roberts") is based partially on real-life Latter-day Saint politician Senator Harry Reid, who served as a Nevada state senator at the time period depicted in "Casino," and eventually became the Senate Minority Leader for the U.S. Senate.

The Senator: Casino character based partially on Latter-day Saint politician Sen. Harry Reid
The mafia-run casino is able to operate its legal, quasi-legal, and sometimes illegal operations in Las Vegas in part because it curries favor with powerful Nevada politicians. A character known in the film and screenplay as the "Senator" represents some Nevada politicians. The Senator is played by Dick Smothers (of the famous "Smothers Brothers" comedy duo). The character was based partially on real-life Nevada Senator Harry Reid, a Democrat and a devout Latter-day Saint. Sen. Reid made headlines by fighting against mafia-related corruption in the Las Vegas casino industry. In "Casino," some of the actions taken by the Senator are based directly on Sen. Reid's battle against mafia influence.

The name of the "Senator" is never mentioned in the "Casino" screenplay. The Senator's name is never spoken aloud in the film. But we know that the influential Senator character is named "Harrison Roberts." The Senator's name is shown prominently on a placard in front of him at the Senate Gaming Commission hearing at which Sam Rothstein's gaming license is revoked. The name of Senator "Harrison Roberts" is intentionally similar to Senator Harry Reid's name. They share the same initials, and "Harrison" would likely be called "Harry" for short.
Harry Reid's Years On The Nevada Gaming Commission

it's his five years as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission, during the late 70s, that is at the center of a new video being featured at the  Mob Museum.

"Facing Down the Mob: Harry Reid's Years on the Nevada Gaming Commission," documents Reid's efforts to put up a fight against some of the mob figures controlling Las Vegas casinos at the time, including Tony Spilatro and Frank 'Lefty' Rosenthal.

The era and the fights between the mob and gaming officials were documented in the book "Casino" by Nicholas Pileggi, which became the award-winning Martin Scorsese movie by the same name.

Jeff Bezos just gave his friend David Geffen $100 million ....
Jeff Bezos sets record with $165 million Beverly Hills home splurge

The founder agreed to pay $165 million for a Beverly Hills mansion on nine acres, according to a person with knowledge of the matter, setting a record for a Los Angeles-area home.

The property designed for Hollywood film titan Jack Warner in the 1930s was described by Architectural Digest in 1992 as the "archetypal studio mogul's estate," built in Georgian style with expansive terraces and its own nine-hole golf course.

The purchase of the Warner estate, described by the person on condition they not be named, was reported earlier Wednesday by the Wall Street Journal. The property has belonged to David Geffen since 1990, when he paid $47.5 million.

Bezos was seen socializing on the entertainment mogul's mega-yacht last summer, visible in an Instagram post with girlfriend Lauren Sanchez and Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s former chief, Lloyd Blankfein.

Aside from the recent buzz in the media regarding his probable ownership of the 136-metre Lürssen charter superyacht Flying Fox, the richest person in the world Jeff Bezos (Forbes) has been photographed on-board another Lürssen giant, the 138-metre Rising Sun, reports Bloomberg, in the company of her owner David Geffen and Lloyd Blankfein, according to Yacht Harbour.

On Tuesday, David Geffen posted the shot on his Instagram account, with the caption: 'Having a great time in the Balearics.' On the shot, the company is joined by a group of people including Lauren Sanchez, the model Karlie Kloss and her husband, Josh Kushner, reports Business Insider.

Hollywood's richest man and the co-founder/founder of film studio DreamWorks and record labels Asylum Records, Geffen Records and DGC Records, David Geffen's net worth is estimated at $8.3 billion. He is also known for sparing time for philanthropy, pledging $150 million to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art or donating to the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

With a reported net worth of $1.1 billion, Lloyd Blankfein remains CEO of Goldman Sachs. The company boasts nearly $1.5 trillion in assets for corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals. In early 2018 it was reported that Blankfein would retire at the end of the year, but he distanced himself from the reports.

Italy: Salvini Facing Show Trial For "Kidnapping" Migrants

Sat, 02/15/2020 - 09:20
Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute,

( (

The Italian Senate has voted to strip former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini of parliamentary immunity so that he can face kidnapping charges for refusing to allow migrants to disembark from a ship at a port in Sicily.

If Salvini, who leads the anti-mass-migration party, Lega (League), is found guilty, he faces a ban on holding political office and up to 15 years in prison. He has said that he acted in Italy's national interest and that the charges against him are politically motivated, aimed at silencing criticism of the country's open-door migration policy.

Under Italian law, ministers enjoy immunity for actions taken while in office — unless the Senate votes to lift that protection. On February 12, the Italian Senate voted 152-76 in favor of lifting Salvini's immunity, after a parliamentary committee on January 21 recommended the action.

In December, the Court of Ministers in Catania, Sicily, ruled that Salvini should be indicted for "aggravated kidnapping" for depriving 131 migrants onboard the Gregoretti coastguard ship of their liberty by refusing to allow them to disembark. The incident, which occurred over a four-day period in July 2019, was part of Salvini's "closed ports" policy against illegal immigration and an attempt to force EU member states to share the burden of mass migration.

More than 600,000 migrants have arrived in Italy over the past four years. Under EU rules — known as the Dublin Regulationmigrants must seek asylum in their country of arrival, which, for reasons of geography, places an inordinate burden on Italy.

After five other EU member states agreed to take in most of the migrants onboard the Gregoretti, Salvini on July 31 allowed them to disembark in Augusta, Sicily, from where they were transferred abroad.

In September, Sicilian prosecutor Carmelo Zuccaro said that the kidnapping accusations against Salvini were "groundless" and recommended that he be acquitted of all charges. The Court of Ministers, however, overruled Zuccaro, who is now, paradoxically, required to proceed with prosecuting Salvini, even though he has already found him to be innocent.

The charges against Salvini appear to be part of a political vendetta against him as well as his opposition to mass migration.

Facebook Will Fork Over $550M in Giant Biometric Privacy Settlement
Print Email
January 31, 2020 by Daniel Stoller

Facebook Inc. agreed to pay $550 million to resolve claims it collected user biometric data without consent in one of the largest consumer privacy settlements in U.S. history.

The accord, which requires a judge's approval, will avert a trial that may have exposed the social networking company to billions of dollars in damages. Facebook fought unsuccessfully to persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to derail the class action case. The users alleged that the company's photo-scanning technology violated an Illinois law by gathering and storing biometric data without their permission.

"We decided to pursue a settlement as it was in the best interest of our community and our shareholders to move past this matter," Facebook said.
While Facebook has weathered controversy over privacy almost since its inception, the company has come under particularly harsh scrutiny in recent years, both in the U.S. and in Europe. Facebook reached a historic $5 billion deal in July with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to settle an investigation into its privacy practices stemming from the Cambridge Analytica scandal that came to light in early 2018. The company is also facing probes by New York, California, Massachusetts and others over its third-party data practices.


Facebook has for years encouraged users to tag people in photographs they upload in their personal posts
and the social network stores the collected information. The company has used a program it calls DeepFace to match other photos of a person.


The settlement will push technology companies to pay closer attention to users' concerns over biometric technology, said Pam Dixon, executive director of nonprofit advocacy group World Privacy Forum.

"This will cause a lot of discussion on the Biometric Information Privacy Act as very few companies could afford a settlement like this and survive," she said.

In the U.S. there are 181 million people who still do not have a 'REAL ID' and more than half of Americans are unaware that they will need the ID to board a flight, according to research by the U.S. Travel Association (USTA) conducted last fall.

The law, enforced after recommendations following 9/11, means that all travelers will need a REAL ID to fly domestically.

Jello Biafra on origin of name Dead Kennedys ('82) + Black Flag interview ('84)

(,300&ssl=1) (

Eric Reed Boucher (born June 17, 1958), better known by his professional name Jello Biafra, is an American singer, musician, and spoken word artist. He is the former lead singer and songwriter for the San Francisco punk rock band Dead Kennedys.

Initially active from 1979 to 1986, Dead Kennedys were known for rapid-fire music topped with Biafra's sardonic lyrics and biting social commentary, delivered in his "unique quiver of a voice."[1] When the band broke up in 1986, he took over the influential independent record label Alternative Tentacles, which he had founded in 1979 with Dead Kennedys bandmate East Bay Ray.

In a 2000 lawsuit, upheld on appeal in 2003 by the California Supreme Court, Biafra was found liable for breach of contract, fraud and malice in withholding a decade's worth of royalties from his former bandmates and ordered to pay over $200,000 in compensation and punitive damages; the band subsequently reformed without Biafra.[2] Although now focused primarily on spoken word performances, Biafra has continued as a musician in numerous collaborations. He has also occasionally appeared in cameo roles in films.

Politically, Biafra is a member of the Green Party of the United States[3] and supports various political causes. He ran for the party's presidential nomination in the 2000 presidential election, finishing a distant second to Ralph Nader.[4]

He is a staunch believer in a free society, and utilizes shock value and advocates direct action and pranksterism in the name of political causes.
[3] Biafra is known to use absurdist media tactics, in the leftist tradition of the Yippies, to highlight issues of civil rights and social justice.

Chaos As Thousands Of Refugees Charge Greek Border En Masse; 15,000 Surge Into EU Border Town
Sun, 03/01/2020


True to Erdogan's prior threat that Europe would see 18,000 to as many as 30,000 refugees pour across European Union borders on Saturday after Turkey 'opened the gates,' it's being reported that the number of migrants at Evros — a key land border between Turkey and Greece —  has now reached 15,000.

Throughout Saturday the area became a war zone as thousands of refugees, urged on by Turkish authorities, attempted to cross into Greece en masse.

In places like the now completely closed Kastanies crossing (sealed by the Greek side as Turkish guards stood down and let migrants pass freely), thousands are stuck in 'no man's land' between the borders, with the situation fast descending into chaos.


Germany's Der Spiegal published footage showing migrants hurling tear gas grenades at Greek police, reportedly canisters provided by Turkish security themselves. 


Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis earlier vowed that "no illegal entries into Greece will be tolerated" - and has authorized a militarized response to seal border crossings with Turkey, which has included naval patrols in the Aegean to thwart migrant boats from passing.

At the Kastanies crossing Greek guards were seen firing tear gas on tightly packed groups of hundreds of migrants:


It's been confirmed that well over 30,000 mostly Syrian refugees and migrants on the their way to European border areas.

Unconfirmed reports say Athens may now even be sending tanks in support of commandos and helicopters already said to be there assisting in sealing the Evros border area.

Greece blocks 10,000 migrants at Turkey border
   5 hours ago

Greece says it has stopped nearly 10,000 migrants crossing over the land border from Turkey.

Separately, Greek police say at least 500 people on seven boats have reached the Greek islands of Lesbos, Samos and Chios, where camps for migrants are already severely overcrowded.

Turkey has vowed to open its doors for migrants to travel to the EU.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says it cannot deal with the amount of people fleeing Syria's civil war.

His decision came after at least 33 Turkish soldiers were killed in air strikes in Idlib province in northern Syria this week.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has called a meeting for his country's national security council later on Sunday.

By Dana Mattioli
April 23, 2020 9:53 am ET Inc. employees have used data about independent sellers on the company's platform to develop competing products, a practice at odds with the company's stated policies.

The online retailing giant has long asserted, including to Congress, that when it makes and sells its own products, it doesn't use information it collects from the site's individual third-party sellers—data those sellers view as proprietary.

Yet interviews with more than 20 former employees of Amazon's private-label business and documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal reveal that employees did just that. Such information can help Amazon decide how to price an item, which features to copy or whether to enter a product segment based on its earning potential, according to people familiar with the practice, including a current employee and some former employees who participated in it.


In one instance, Amazon employees accessed documents and data about a bestselling car-trunk organizer sold by a third-party vendor. The information included total sales, how much the vendor paid Amazon for marketing and shipping, and how much Amazon made on each sale. Amazon's private-label arm later introduced its own car-trunk organizers.


Last year, the European Union's top antitrust enforcer said that it was investigating whether Amazon is abusing its dual role as a seller of its own products and a marketplace operator and whether the company is gaining a competitive advantage from data it gathers on third-party sellers.


The Justice Department, Federal Trade Commission and Congress also are investigating large technology companies, including Amazon, on antitrust matters. Amazon is facing scrutiny over whether it unfairly uses its size and platform against competitors and other sellers on its site.
"We knew we shouldn't," said one former employee who accessed the data and described a pattern of using it to launch and benefit Amazon products. "But at the same time, we are making Amazon branded products, and we want them to sell."
If access was restricted, managers sometimes would ask an Amazon business analyst to create reports featuring the information, according to former workers, including one who called the practice "going over the fence." In other cases, supposedly aggregated data was derived exclusively or almost entirely from one seller, former employees said.


The majority of Amazon's sales—58%—come through third-party sellers, primarily small and medium-size firms that list their items for sale on Amazon's Marketplace platform. (Amazon also buys items directly from manufacturers and sells them directly in "first-party" sales.)

Amazon started making its own products in 2007 with its Kindle e-reader, and it has steadily added new categories and other private-label brand names. Some of its private-label products, such as batteries, have been home runs. Investment firm SunTrust Robinson Humphrey estimates Amazon is on track to post $31 billion in private-label sales by 2022, or nearly double retailer Nordstrom Inc.'s 2019 revenues.

America's Super-Rich See Their Wealth Rise $282 Billion In Three Weeks Of Pandemic
Authored by Alan Macleod via,

A new report from the Institute for Policy Studies found that, while tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic, America's ultra-wealthy elite have seen their net worth surge by $282 billion in just 23 days. This is despite the fact that the economy is expected to contract by 40 percent this quarter.

The report also noted that between 1980 and 2020 the tax obligations of America's billionaires, measured as a percentage of their wealth, decreased by 79 percent.

In the last 30 years, U.S. billionaire wealth soared by over 1100 percent while median household wealth increased by barely five percent.

In 1990, the total wealth held by America's billionaire class was $240 billion; today that number stands at $2.95 trillion.

Thus, America's billionaires accrued more wealth in just the past three weeks than they made in total prior to 1980.

As a result, just three people ­– Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffet – own as much wealth as the bottom half of all U.S. households combined.

The Institute for Policy Studies' report paints a picture of a modern day oligarchy, where the super-rich have captured legislative and executive power, controlling what laws are passed. The report discusses what it labels a new "wealth defense industry" – where "billionaires are paying millions to dodge billions in taxes," with teams of accountants, lawyers, lobbyists and asset managers helping them conceal their vast fortunes in tax havens and so-called charitable trusts. The result has been crippled social programs and a decrease in living standards and even a sustained drop in life expectancy – something rarely seen in history outside of major wars or famines.

Few Americans believe their children will be better off than they were. Statistics suggest they are right.

"A century ago, anyone would have thought it absurd to talk about homosexual marriage. Today those who oppose it are excommunicated from society," Benedict says.

"It's the same thing with abortion and creating human life in the laboratory," he says, adding that it's "only natural" for people to "fear the spiritual power of the Antichrist" -- an evil force seeking to supplant Jesus Christ.

"The real threat to the Church... is in the global dictatorship of purportedly humanist ideologies," he warns.

Characteristics and viral propagation properties of a new human diploid cell line, walvax-2, and its suitability as a candidate cell substrate for vaccine production

Hum Vaccin Immunother. 2015 Apr; 11(4): 998–1009.

Bo Ma,1,2 Li-Fang He,2 Yi-Li Zhang,2 Min Chen,2 Li-Li Wang,2 Hong-Wei Yang,2 Ting Yan,2 Meng-Xiang Sun,1 and Cong-Yi Zheng1,*

We have developed a new HDCS, Walvax-2, which we derived from the lung tissue of a 3-month-old fetus. We established primary, master and working cell banks successfully from reconstituted frozen cells. Observations during the concurrent propagation of Walvax-2 and MRC-5 cells revealed differences in terms of growth rate, cell viability and viral sensitivities.
Furthermore, in order to characterize the Walvax-2 cell banks, a series of tests including cell identification, chromosomal characterization, tumorigenicity, as well as tests for the presence of microbial agents, exogenous viruses, and retroviruses, were conducted according to standard international protocols. In conclusion, results from this study show that Walvax-2 cell banks are a promising cell substrate and could potentially be used for the manufacturing of HDCVs.

New Human Fetal Cell Lines Available for Vaccine Production
Posted: 1/15/2018 11:59:35 AM

Human cells from the tissue of aborted fetuses have been used in vaccines since the 1960s, and currently they are used in 11 vaccines.

Aborted human fetal cell cultures are used for growing viruses, which are then used in the preparation of inactivated and live virus vaccines. They may also be grown on chick embryos or cells from different animals and bugs, such as army worms.

A study published in 2015 in the journal Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics confirms that in addition to the two primary cell cultures that have been used for more than half a century to make hundreds of millions of doses, a third aborted human fetal cell culture may be used. Called Walvax-2, it has been assessed as a culture for growing rabies, hepatitis, and varicella viruses.

Source tissue for this new cell line was obtained from nine fetuses provided by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of Yunnan Hospital in China. Relatively little additional information about Walvax-2 is available from public sources. It is not clear how the name was derived, what government agency or company is leading the research, or the possible application of the cell line to vaccine production.

Use of Aborted Fetal Tissue in Vaccines and Medical Research Obscures the Value of All Human Life
Kyle Christopher McKenna, PhD


This opinion addresses the licitness, quasi-benefits, and consequences of using aborted fetal tissue in vaccines and in medical research. The Catholic Church permits temporary use of vaccines generated using aborted fetal tissue to protect children from preventable diseases until alternative vaccines that do not use aborted fetal tissue are available. In medical research, cell lines that were generated from elective abortions should be avoided and alternative cell lines of licit origin utilized. The association between in utero Zika virus infections and microcephaly has increased the demand for fetal tissue to establish causality and to understand disease progression. These studies require extensive oversight as they could directly encourage elective abortions. The consequence of the use of fetal tissue from elective abortions is desensitization of beneficiaries to the original illicit act of abortion thereby obscuring the value of all human life and potentially leading to scandal.

Summary: The use of fetal tissue from elective abortions is commonplace in the pharmaceutical industry and in medical research. This opinion addresses the illicitness, quasi-benefits, and consequences of using fetal tissue from elective abortions in vaccines and in medical research. All people of good conscience have the responsibility to voice opposition to the use of fetal tissue from elective abortions in order to promote development of alternatives, affirm the value of all human life and limit scandal.

Fetal Tissue from Elective Abortions in Vaccines

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends fifteen different vaccines for children to induce protection against several viral and bacterial infections that are causes of morbidity and mortality (American Academy of Pediatrics 2016). Three of these vaccines, M-M-R-II (Merck 2016a), VARIVAX (Merck 2016b), and HAVRIX (Glaxo Smith Kline 2016) utilize cell lines WI-38 or MRC-5 that were derived from fetal tissues (Wong 2006) harvested from elective abortions in the 1960s to generate the attenuated viruses used in these immunizations for rubella (M-M-R-II), varicella (VARIVAX), or hepatitis A (HAVRIX). The efficacy of these vaccines has been clearly demonstrated.

Vero cells are a lineage of cells used in cell cultures.[1] The 'Vero' lineage was isolated from kidney epithelial cells extracted from an African green monkey (Chlorocebus sp.; formerly called Cercopithecus aethiops, this group of monkeys has been split into several different species). The lineage was developed on 27 March 1962, by Yasumura and Kawakita at the Chiba University in Chiba, Japan.[2] The original cell line was named "Vero" after an abbreviation of verda reno, which means "green kidney" in Esperanto, while vero itself means "truth" in Esperanto.[3]
The whole genome sequence of a Vero cell line was determined by Japanese investigators in 2014
Many cell lines that are widely used for biomedical research have been contaminated and overgrown by other, more aggressive cells. For example, supposed thyroid lines were actually melanoma cells, supposed prostate tissue was actually bladder cancer, and supposed normal uterine cultures were actually breast cancer.

Proteomic Analysis of Membrane Proteins of Vero Cells: Exploration of Potential Proteins Responsible for Virus Entry
2014 Jan 1
Donghua Guo, Qinghe Zhu, Hong Zhang, and Dongbo Sun
Vero cells are highly susceptible to many viruses in humans and animals, and its membrane proteins (MPs) are responsible for virus entry.
The Vero lineage was isolated from kidney epithelial cells extracted from an African green monkey (Yasumura and Kawakita, 1963). African green monkey kidney (Vero) cells have been proven to be highly susceptible to many viruses in humans and animals, such as coronaviruses, and are widely used for the primary isolation and cultivation of the Vero-infected viruses and novel viruses (Ozaki et al., 2004; Pan et al., 2012; Zhou et al., 2012; Cheng et al., 2013; Vlecken et al., 2013). The virus entry-associated proteins on the surface of target cells are important basic information for designing the prevention and treatment strategies of the viral diseases. At present, there is no detailed information for addressing virus entry-associated proteins in Vero cells.

| - - -

Derived from the kidney of an African green monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) in the 1960s, Vero cells are one of the most common mammalian continuous cell lines used in research.
In addition, Vero cells have been licensed in the United States for production of both live (rotavirus, smallpox) and inactivated (poliovirus) viral vaccines, and throughout the world Vero cells have been used for the production of a number of other viruses, including Rabies virus, Reovirus and Japanese encephalitis virus. The protocols outlined in this appendix detail procedures for the routine growth and maintenance of Vero cells in a research laboratory setting. There are several lines of Vero cells commercially available (i.e., Vero, Vero 76, Vero E6), but they were all ultimately derived from the same source, and the protocols in this unit can be used with any line of Vero cells.

Few back then grasped that these vaccines might also be a huge, inadvertent, uncontrolled experiment in interspecies viral transmission. But from 1955 to 1963, according to a 1976 US National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded study, 98 million Americans alone probably were exposed to polio vaccines contaminated with SV40—a monkey virus that can cause cancers in animals. Now, a July 7 report in New Scientist has raised fears that hundreds of millions of eastern Europeans, Asians, and Africans also may have been exposed to SV40 in Soviet-made polio vaccines. Michele Carbone of Loyola University Medical Center, Chicago, USA, announced at the 2004 Vaccine Cell Substrates meeting (Rockville, MD) that the Soviet vaccine could have been contaminated until the 1980s. This is worrying since, despite 44 years of medical debate, epidemiological studies have yet to establish conclusively whether SV40 has or hasn't caused cancers in people.

Vaccines Developed Using Human Cell Strains

"Merck, as well as other vaccine manufacturers, uses two well-established human cell lines to grow the virus for selected vaccines," Merck said in a statement to ABC News. "The FDA has approved the use of these cell lines for the production of these Merck vaccines."

Other common vaccines, including those for chicken pox, hepatitis and rabies, are also propagated in cells originating from legally aborted human fetuses, according to the FDA.

"These abortions, which occurred decades ago, were not undertaken with the intent of producing vaccines," said a spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers Disease Control and Prevention.

The original cells were obtained more than 50 years ago and have been maintained under strict federal guidelines by the American Type Culture Collection, according to Merck.

"These cell lines are now more than three generations removed from their origin, and we have not used any new tissue to produce these vaccines," the company added in its statement.

To say that the vaccines contain a significant amount of human fetal tissue, as some objectors to the vaccines claim, is misleading, stressed Dr. Paul Offit, the director of the vaccine education center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Offit said he was glad the Catholic Church supports vaccination.

SV-40 has been passed on to sexual partners and their children :

People with cancers who were born after SV40 was no longer a contaminant of the polio vaccine were found to have evidence for SV40 in their cancerous cells.


This happy story of medical marvel has a deadly glitch. And it is especially deadly if, like me, you received your vaccinations in the 1950s, in certain states like Massachusetts.

In 1960, researchers discovered that the polio vaccine distributed to certain states was infected with another virus called "Simian Virus 40." SV-40 is a monkey virus that is not normally found in humans. Unknown at the time, it was present in hundreds of rhesus monkeys that were used to grow and harvest the polio vaccine. Injected into research animals, the SV-40 virus causes brain and lung cancers. Now, some forty years later, its effect on humans is just being investigated.

"SV-40 has appeared in 61% of all new cancer patients -- patients too young to have received the contaminated vaccine being administered forty years ago!"
SV-40 also has been found in 23% of blood samples and 45% of sperm fluids taken from normal individuals! Researchers have determined the SV-40 virus can be transmitted sexually and through blood transfusions.

Barry Diller Says Amazon "Not A Monopoly", Dismisses Quarterly Guidance As "Dumbass" Work
Fri, 06/05/2020 - 13:31

Less than a day after Tesla CEO Elon Musk accused Amazon of being a monopoly and called for its breakup,
Expedia Chairman Barry Diller said he disagreed with Musk's assessment, but agreed that 'smart' regulations are probably warranted for tech giants, including another heavyweight that probably more closely resembles a monopoly.

That company, Diller says, is Google parent Alphabet, which Diller implied might someday obtain "monopoly status."

Facebook boots Roger Stone from Instagram in crackdown on 'inauthentic' activity

The Trump confidant had beenusing the platform recently to advocate for clemency in bid to avoid jailtime.

Updated: 07/08/2020 07:48 PM EDT

President Donald Trump's longtime confidant Roger Stone was booted from Instagram on Wednesday after Facebook determined he participated in an effort to spread "inauthentic" information — in some cases about his own criminal trial.

Stone, who is slated to go to prison next week, had been posting daily updates on Instagram about his efforts to stay out of jail and obtain a pardon from Trump. But late Wednesday, after Facebook's announcement, his account was no longer available.

Facebook said Stone was tied to a network of deceptive accounts that posted about Florida and Stone himself, but did not provide further details on the posts' content.

Italian police seize 14 tonnes of amphetamines allegedly produced by Islamic State
Posted Wednesday 1 July 2020 at 8:26am, updated Wednesday 1 July 2020 at 6:45pm

Italian police are claiming to have made the biggest amphetamines bust of all time after seizing 14 tonnes of drugs allegedly produced in Syria by the Islamic State (IS) group.

The 14 tonnes of drugs would have raked in about 1 billion euros ($1.6 billion) in street sales had they ultimately made it to consumers, customs police said.
Investigators hypothesise that amphetamine production in Europe has been hampered by the pandemic lockdown, and so drug traffickers may have turned to Syria-based producers to fill the market.


The amphetamines were labelled "captagon", the street name for a drug whose chemical base was originally fenethylline.

However, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime World Drugs Report 2020 what drug organisations call "captagon" these days is usually a mixture of amphetamine, caffeine and other substances.

It's unclear whether the drugs seized in Italy were fenethylline-based or a substitute.

EU Commission declares asylum rejections at borders Illegal, not consistent with EU "values"
Jul 9, 2020 2:00 pm By Christine Douglass-Williams

The EU has returned to muscling its member states into accepting large numbers of unvetted, illegal Muslim migrants.

The European Commission has declared that European Union member states cannot reject asylum applications at their borders or close their borders to asylum seekers.

This move is being done in the name of "European values," while ignoring the values of those it brings into European countries.

Last week, a migrant transport NGO escorted in coronavirus-positive Muslim migrants. The Italian Interior Ministry warned last month that at least 20,000 migrants were "poised to set out from the coast of North Africa toward Italy. In a letter to the European Commission, it dramatically warned that a new emergency is approaching and called for a common European strategy in response." The new strategy is proving to be open borders no matter what, which will lead to the further destruction of the EU. Also last week, Italian police seized 30,000 pounds of amphetamines, "the drug of the jihad," produced by the Islamic State.

Report: Channel Migrants 'Threaten to Throw Their Children Into the Water' to Keep French Away
Jack Montgomery
29 May 2020

Illegal migrants crossing the English Channel in small boats threaten to drown themselves or their children in order to keep French ships back, according to reports.

Migrants from coronavirus-infected camps on the French coast have been crossing the English Channel in record numbers, with many seemingly being escorted into British territorial waters by French ships rather than intercepted and turned around.

The British government, which has paid the French government millions of pounds to stop migrants from using their country as a launchpad to Britain, has defended this state of affairs — exposed by Brexit leader turned investigative reporter Nigel Farage — on grounds that the French authorities allegedly cannot intercept the migrants request assistance under international law — and that the British authorities, similarly, cannot turn the boats around but must bring them the rest of the way to England to lodge their bogus asylum claims.

Migrant Boat Crossings To UK Surge During Virus Lockdown
05/20/20 AT 11:32 PM

The number of unaccompanied young migrants crossing the Channel from France to Britain has spiked during the coronavirus outbreak, as travel restrictions force them onto boats rather than trucks.

Kent County Council in southeast England, which includes the major port of Dover, was dealing with "230 to 250" young migrants a year ago, its chief executive, Roger Gough, said.

"But that number has pretty much doubled. It's now nearly 470 and new arrivals are coming in all the time," he told AFP.

Channel crossing attempts have increased since the end of 2018, despite the danger of heavy maritime traffic, strong currents and low water temperatures.

In 2019, 2,758 migrants were rescued by the French and British authorities while trying to cross the strait -- four times more than in 2018, according to French officials.

The coronavirus pandemic has reinforced the trend,
with the reduced number of trucks going through the Channel Tunnel leading migrants to make the crossing in small boats instead.

"We used to see these young people crossing in trucks. This was the typical route," Gough said.

Hong Kong Forced to Delete Movies, TV Shows, Books That 'Threaten' China

China's state-run Global Times reported approvingly on Thursday that Hong Kong has been forced to suppress countless movies, television shows, books, and online posts that could violate the new security law imposed by Beijing because the material could be judged to "threaten" Communist China, and those who display or sell the "threatening" material could be held legally liable.

The Global Times quoted Hong Kong secretary for security John Lee Ka-Chiu stating that the Chinese security law fixed a number of "loopholes" in law enforcement, such as by giving the police new powers to "remove information that incites others to commit crimes or engage in crimes that endanger national security."

Lee warned that if "information that threatens national security" is not removed, "the publisher, network, and service provider should hold legal accountability."

Pro-democracy activists are also learning to curtail and disguise their speech to evade Chinese Communist censorship squads and search algorithms

Johnny Depp left broke after losing $650m movie fortune and wracking up $100m debt


Hollywood actor Johnny Depp told a court today that he was left broke after losing his $650 million fortune from the Pirates of The Caribbean movies and wracking up massive debts due to unpaid tax bills

13 JUL 2020

Johnny Depp has claimed he was left broke after losing his entire $650 million movie fortune and wracking up $100 million in debt.

The actor, 57, returned to London's High Court today for a fifth day giving testimony as part of his libel case against News Group Newspapers.

Depp is suing NGN over a story published in The Sun in 2018 which branded him a "wife beater" - a claim which he strenuously denies.

During today's testimony, Depp lifted the lid on his finances - revealing he lost his entire earnings from the lucrative Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

He told the court that after his fortune was wipes out, he was left $100 million in debt due to spiralling tax bills.

Depp said he found out the bad news shortly before his ex-wife Amber Heard's 30th birthday party on April 21 2016.

Depp has denied he was ever violent towards his ex-wife and has accused her of abusing him during their marriage.
The actor has argued his ex-wife was abusive towards him during the marriage, which collapsed in 2016.

American Stasi: California Building 10,000 Person Army Of Professional Snitches

Posted By: Victoria Colliver via Politico April 30, 2020
California will lead the nation in creating an army of Big-Brother snitches to rat out personal health statuses. Hiring will be no problem since unemployment is rampant among many groups, including the homeless and illegal immigrants. What could go wrong?

This program risks the formal establishment of an American Stasi counterpart to the East German Stasi in East Germany during the Cold War after WWII. These were called "informants" but the people that they "spotted" were often targeted for death or labor camps. ⁃ TN Editor

California's plans to build an army of 10,000 people that can trace the trail of the coronavirus exposure could serve as a template for the nation and create a whole new sector of public health workers.

San Francisco this week is deploying its first group of about 50 volunteer contact tracers, many with no health care background — such as city librarians, attorneys and investigators. Officials elsewhere are watching the approach developed by University of California, San Francisco researchers with the hopes that they can scale it up quickly with workers from nonhealth sectors to meet the needs this unprecedented pandemic.

Three New Scandals Show How Pervasive and Dangerous Mass Surveillance Is in the West, Vindicating Snowden

While most eyes are focused on the presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, three major events prove how widespread, and dangerous, mass surveillance has become in the West. Standing alone, each event highlights exactly the severe threats that motivated Edward Snowden to blow his whistle; taken together, they constitute full-scale vindication of everything he's done.

Earlier this month, a special British court that rules on secret spying activities issued an emphatic denunciation of the nation's domestic mass surveillance programs. The court found that "British security agencies have secretly and unlawfully collected massive volumes of confidential personal data, including financial information, on citizens for more than a decade." Those agencies, the court found, "operated an illegal regime to collect vast amounts of communications data, tracking individual phone and web use and other confidential personal information, without adequate safeguards or supervision for 17 years."

Google Will Ban Ads On Sites Publishing "Debunked" Coronavirus Theories
Fri, 07/17/2020 - 12:42

is about to take one giant step into directly shaping the prevailing media narrative.

One month after Google made news by banning ads on websites - such as this one - for violating its terms of service when it comes to "derogatory" material (a purposefully amorphous concept), the world's leading search engine and internet advertising monopoly which controls 70% of online ad spending, will take an even more aggressive step.

According to CNBC, starting on August 18, Google will "ban publishers from using its ad platform next to content that promotes conspiracy theories about Covid-19."

Additionally, "in cases where a particular site publishes a certain threshold of material that violates these policies, it will ban the entire site from using its ad platforms."

In short, anyone who deviates from the conventionally accepted narrative, or as CNBC puts it  challenges the "authoritative scientific consensus" on the coronavirus pandemic will be promptly demonetized.

What constitutes "authoritative scientific consensus"? According to CNBC "banned claims would include conspiracy theories like vaccines being attempts to genetically modify the population, that Bill Gates created Covid-19 or that the disease was a bioweapon created in a Chinese lab." Which is especially troubling since the claim of whether or not the virus was created in the Wuhan Institute of Virology has not only been challenged by other "authoritative" sources, but as we reported in April, none other than the Five Eyes intelligence agencies of Australia, Canada, NZ, UK and US, are "looking closely at the work of a senior scientist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Peng Zhou, as they examine whether COVID-19 originated from a wet market or whether the naturally-­occurring virus may have been released from the level four laboratory in Wuhan that was studying deadly coronavirus pathogens from bats."

One wonders how much of an influence China has in shaping what is the "authoritative scientific consensus?" As just one example of the egregious conflicts of interest in determining what is and is not "truth" we remind readers that a "Facebook 'Fact Checker' Worked At Wuhan Biolab; Ruled Out Virus-Leak While 'Debunking' Articles."

Twitter bans 7,000 QAnon accounts, limits 150,000 others as part of broad crackdown
The company will classify QAnon as coordinated harmful activity in part because of a rise in harassment targeting high-profile critics of the president.
July 21, 2020, 4:59 PM PDT / Updated July 21, 2020, 5:00 PM PDT
By Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny

Twitter announced Tuesday that it has begun taking sweeping actions to limit the reach of QAnon content, banning many of the conspiracy theory's followers because of problems with harassment and misinformation.

Twitter will stop recommending accounts and content related to QAnon, including material in email and follow recommendations, and it will take steps to limit circulation of content in features like trends and search. The action will affect about 150,000 accounts, said a spokesperson, who asked to remain unnamed because of concerns about the targeted harassment of social media employees.

The spokesperson said that as part of its new policy, the company had taken down more than 7,000 QAnon accounts in the last few weeks for breaking its rules on targeted harassment.

The sweeping enforcement action will ban QAnon-related terms from appearing in trending topics and the platform's search feature, ban known QAnon-related URLs and prohibit "swarming" of people who are baselessly targeted by coordinated harassment campaigns pushed by QAnon followers.

The spokesperson said that while the targeted enforcement fell under Twitter's existing platform manipulation rules, its classification of QAnon material and behavior as coordinated harmful activity was a new designation. The spokesperson said Twitter was acting now because of rising harm associated with the conspiracy theory.

Twitter plans to permanently ban accounts that violate policies around platform manipulation, evasion of bans and operation of multiple accounts, behaviors commonly used by QAnon accounts, the spokesperson said. Twitter began blocking QAnon websites last week, and it will continue to block the distribution of QAnon-related URLs, the spokesperson said.

QAnon is a right-wing conspiracy theory that centers on the baseless belief that an anonymous tipster is revealing how President Donald Trump is leading a secret war against a so-called deep state — a collection of political, business and Hollywood elites who, according to the theory, worship Satan and abuse and murder children. The conspiracy theory's roots grew from Pizzagate, which claimed that Hillary Clinton ran a pedophilia ring from a Washington, D.C., pizza shop.

Kodak Insider Makes Well-Timed Stock Gift of $116 Million to Religious Charity He Started

Congregation Chemdas Yisroel in Brooklyn. An awning indicates a congregation at the location is part of the Nadvorna Hasidic dynasty of ultra-Orthodox Judaism.

's wild stock-market ride produced what might be the biggest contribution on record to a religious nonprofit, the product of a well-timed gift by Kodak board member George Karfunkel.

In a securities filing last week, Mr. Karfunkel and his wife, Renee Karfunkel, said they donated 3 million of their 6.3 million Kodak shares to Congregation Chemdas Yisroel in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The congregation was incorporated in Delaware in 2018 and uses a Brooklyn accountants' office as its mailing address, New York charity-registration filings show. Mr. Karfunkel is listed in those filings as its president.

The securities filing said the gift took place July 29, the day Kodak stock closed at its highest level since 2014. Using the average of the stock's high and low that day of $38.75, which is how the Internal Revenue Service values stock gifts, the donation was worth $116.3 million.

That would make it the single largest gift recorded to a religious group, based on a list maintained by the Chronicle of Philanthropy. The Chronicle said its database is based on the best possible information submitted to the public, but there are gifts given where there is no public record.

The Karfunkels' donation could generate tens of millions of dollars in income-tax benefits for the couple, who property records show have homes in New York City and Florida.
Charitable deductions are capped in various ways, but taxpayers have five years to use them up, said Jay Starkman, an Atlanta certified public accountant, who added that how valuable they are depends on a variety of factors, including how much and what type of income a donor reports.

Mr. Karfunkel disclosed the gift in a securities filing four trading days after the contribution date. Securities rules say such disclosures should be made "promptly," but don't define the term.


On the other hand, said Mr. Yermack, who also holds a law degree, "there's no law against insider giving." If a director like Mr. Karfunkel felt the stock was likely to drop, he was free to give away his shares.

Congregation Chemdas Yisroel received tax-exempt status from the IRS as a public charity in September 2019. Besides Mr. Karfunkel, two other people are listed as officers or directors in charity registration papers filed with New York's secretary of state.

One is Henry Reinhold, a former executive of a Karfunkel company who is listed as the accountant for the Karfunkels' family foundation in federal tax filings. The other is Abraham Roth. The congregation's mailing address, email and phone number in the New York documents are those of Roth & Co., an accounting firm co-run by Mr. Roth, according to the firm's website.

Mr. Reinhold and Mr. Roth didn't respond to requests for comment, and nobody responded to phone messages left at the congregation's telephone number. It wasn't clear from publicly available documents what the synagogue has done or plans to do with the Kodak stock.

In 1976, Mr. Karfunkel and his wife were among the passengers of an Air France flight hijacked by a Palestinian guerrilla group and then rescued by Israeli commandos at Entebbe in Uganda.

Kodak was founded by George Eastman and Henry A. Strong on September 4, 1888.
During most of the 20th century, Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film. The company's ubiquity was such that its "Kodak moment" tagline entered the common lexicon to describe a personal event that deserved to be recorded for posterity.

Eastman was born in Waterville, New York[3] as the youngest son of George Washington Eastman and Maria Eastman (née Kilbourn), at the 10-acre farm which his parents had bought in 1849.
He was a major philanthropist, establishing the Eastman School of Music, and schools of dentistry and medicine at the University of Rochester and in London Eastman Dental Hospital; contributing to the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and the construction of several buildings at the second campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on the Charles River. In addition, he made major donations to Tuskegee University and Hampton University, historically black universities in the South. With interests in improving health, he provided funds for clinics in London and other European cities to serve low-income residents.
Henry Alvah Strong (August 30, 1838 – July 26, 1919) was an American photography businessman. He was the first president of the Eastman Kodak Company.[2][3][4]

Strong held a lead position in his family's buggy whip manufacturing company prior to meeting George Eastman in 1870. In 1881 he helped provide capital to Eastman to launch the Eastman Dry Plate Company which would later become Eastman Kodak Company.[3]

Twitter's Jack Dorsey: "Straight Blocking Of URLs" Was Wrong
Fri, 10/16/2020 - 09:50

By now, most Americans are probably aware that earlier this week, the New York Post tried to publish a series of stories based on emails and photos allegedly obtained from a laptop dropped off at a computer repair shop owned by a supporter of President Trump. Once the shop owner saw what was on the hard drive, he reportedly got "spooked" and contacted the FBI, which confiscated the hard drive - but not before the repair shop owner made a copy of it.

After the first story hit, Facebook and Twitter stepped up to suppress the story, barring users from sharing the link, and temporarily suspending those - including the president's press secretary - who managed to do so anyway (Twitter even shut down a twitter account associated with the Senate Judiciary Committee after it shared a copy of the story reposted to its website).

During the chaos, a smattering of GOP lawmakers sent letters to Twitter and Facebook demanding and explanation; Sen. Ted Cruz said earlier that he would be happy to subpoena Mark Zuckerberg over what Cruz described as "transparent election interference" by America's largest social media titans. The Judiciary Committeee is already preparing to vote Friday Oct. 23 on whether to subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

Earlier in the week, Jack Dorsey offered a non-apology apology by saying he regretted the breakdown in communication as Twitter moved to suppress the story and punish those sharing it without offering any kind of explanation.

But now that lawmakers are stepping up the pressure, the CEO has returned Friday morning with another more thorough apology, where he acknowledged that the company was "wrong" to 'straight up block the url' or urls associated with the sensitive NY Post stories.


* * *

The mainstream press has continued to insist that the documents reported by the NY Post were "hacked", despite there being zero evidence of this. Earlier theories about the documents and photos being forged were shot down when the Biden Camp left open the possibility that Biden may have briefly met with an executive of Burisma during his time as VP - despite repeatedly insisting that he never discussed business with his son Hunter Biden.

But that won't stop liberals from tearing into Dorsey over the decision as the notion that conservative political speech should be suppressed remains firmly entrenched in mainstream political discourse.

Section 230 is a piece of Internet legislation in the United States, passed into law as part of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) of 1996 (a common name for Title V of the Telecommunications Act of 1996), formally codified as Section 230 of the Communications Act of 1934 at 47 U.S.C. § 230.[a] Section 230 generally provides immunity for website publishers from third-party content.

This is the United States of America — and we have what's known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH!" President Trump wrote about the bans. He went on to retweet a number of accounts making much the same argument.

Twitter's armchair legal experts replied to the President's rant by pointing out that the First Amendment only prohibits the government from suppressing speech, not private companies like Facebook and Twitter. Of course, if anyone knows that, it should be President Trump. It is, after all, the very argument that his own lawyers at the Department of Justice have been making on his behalf in court.
Compare that to the position that Facebook and Twitter find themselves in: They wield tremendous power, to be sure, but that doesn't make them the government. Not only that, but the law that governs tech platforms also explicitly instructs them to make a "good faith" effort to restrict content they consider "obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable."

#Resist: James Woods Trolled After Blocking Anti-Trumpers

Actor James Woods became a top-trending Twitter topic on September 6, getting trolled by thousands, after he tweeted about blocking netizens who use the #Resist hashtag the day before.

Actor James Woods became a top-trending Twitter topic on September 6, getting trolled by thousands, after he tweeted about blocking netizens who use the #Resist hashtag the day before. People who use the #Resist tag are normally against President Donald Trump. Woods is a registered Republican and vocal supporter of the leader.

"Reminder: block any twenty accounts a day that have the hashtag 'resist' in their profile. It slows them down and offsets Twitter's shadow-banning of conservative accounts," he tweeted, attracting nearly 50,000 likes and over 17,500 retweets.

"Use the search function. Type in '#resist' and spend a few minutes blocking as many as you can. Let them sit in an echo chamber screaming at the sky together,"

Woods, who has more than 2.5 million followers continued.

"If millions of us do it, they are herded into a corner. Use other obvious keywords as well. It adds up."

Most of the top tweets related to Woods called him out. This included a message from Shameless actor

Emmy Rossum.
"Every time James Woods is trending I just feel a piece of my soul die," she wrote.

Earlier today, actor James Woods tweeted this clip, and the account that tweeted it was suspended. The account is now back but probably because a famous actor is involved.

No one is allowed to insult Michelle even when she's lying through her gritted teeth.
Twitter already suspended the account that posted this. I'm not sure why? Let's guess...

"A Truly Orwellian Culture" - Amazon Removes COVID Skeptic's Book For Violating Content Guidelines
Sun, 10/18/2020 - 09:55

Around the time Twitter purged New York Post's bombshell stories about Hunter Biden from its platform, late last week, Amazon was busy censoring any criticism against the "official" COVID-19 narrative, with the banning of at least one book from its Amazon Books store.

Political writer James Perloff's latest book, "Covid-19 and the Agendas to Come: Red-Pilled," was removed from Amazon on Thursday, he tweeted.

"BAD NEWS. After selling over 3,500 copies for Amazon since publication on August 20, Amazon has banned my book "COVID-19 and the Agendas to Come, Red-Pilled." Individual orders can still be placed at..." Perloff tweeted.

One day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that the company needs 'more accountability' over its selective political bias, the social media giant suspended US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan for a post touting the southern border wall for helping the country 'stop gang members, murderers, sexual predators, and drugs from entering our country."

Meet your (Chinese) Facebook censors
By Sohrab Ahmari
October 20, 2020


There are at least half a dozen "Chinese nationals who are working on censorship," a former Facebook insider told me last week. "So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, 'Hey, we're going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work.' "

The insider shared an internal directory of the team that does much of this work. It's called Hate-Speech Engineering (George Orwell, call your office), and most of its members are based at Facebook's offices in Seattle. Many have Ph.D.s, and their work is extremely complex, involving machine learning — teaching "computers how to learn and act without being explicitly programmed," as the techy website puts it.

When it comes to censorship on social media, that means "teaching" the Facebook code so certain content ends up at the top of your newsfeed, a feat that earns the firm's software wizards discretionary bonuses, per the ex-insider. It also means making sure other content "shows up dead-last."
The Hate-Speech Engineering team's staff includes a research scientist based at the Seattle office who earned his master's degree in computer engineering from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Another member of the team, a software engineer for machine learning based in Seattle, earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in computer science from Jilin University in northeast China. Still another, an engineering manager, earned his bachelor's in computer science at Nanjing University in eastern China.

Another software engineer previously worked for the Communist-backed conglomerate Huawei, as well as the Beijing National Railway & Design Institute of Signal and Communication. I reached out to all six employees; two replied to confirm that they are Chinese nationals but refused to comment further; the rest didn't reply.

Yet, as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) put it in an email to me, these revelations are yet "another indication that Big Tech is no longer deserving" of statutory protections that render it immune to a publisher's liabilities. Big Tech critic Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), meanwhile, said "this is all the more reason for the Senate to demand that Mark Zuckerberg — under oath and before the election — give an account of what Facebook has been up to."

Tucker: Complete Media Blackout on Biden Corruption Whistleblower
'How Do You Maintain a Democratic System When Reality Itself Has Been Banned?'

Jeff Poor
29 Oct 2020

Thursday, Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson commented on the media's refusal to acknowledge accusations of potential wrongdoing by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his family in which the Biden family allegedly peddled influence given Biden's position of power.

According to Carlson, the media turning a blind eye to the story raised questions about the country's democratic system of government.

Transcript as follows:

CARLSON: the big picture we've been reporting on for quite some time. It's been obvious for really decades now that the Biden family has gotten rich from selling influence abroad. Joe Biden held a series of high level jobs in the U.S. government — Senator, Vice President. Based on that fact, and that fact alone, Biden's son and brother approach foreign governments and companies, sovereign wealth funds, energy conglomerates, third-world oligarchs and dictators, and they offered to exchange favors from Joe Biden for cash.

The polite term for that practice is influence peddling. Sometimes it is legal under American law, sometimes it is not legal. But it has always been the economic engine of the Biden family. They've never done anything else.

   Until recently, no one debated this fact. Several liberal news organizations in fact have written detailed stories about the Biden's secret business dealings over the years. Look them up, assuming you still can.

It's only since Joe Biden received the Democratic nomination that anyone in the media has claimed otherwise.

This week we introduced you to one of the Biden family's former business partners, a man called Tony Bobulinski. Bobulinski confirmed more conclusively than anyone ever has what the Biden's have been doing.

On two separate occasions, Bobulinski met personally with Joe Biden to discuss the family's business deals in China. Biden repeatedly has denied knowing anything about those deals.

Joe Biden is lying, Tony Bobulinski proved it.

It was a major story and not just because it happened here. We only interviewed Tony Bobulinski in the first place, because nobody else would. There was a complete media blackout on his story, and there still is.

In the last three days, and we just checked, the name Tony Bobulinski has not been mentioned a single time on any other television network, not one time.


Our professional class has dismissed from day one the revelations about the Biden family as part of a Russian Intel operation.

There's no evidence for that no matter how many people repeat it. There never has been evidence there never will be evidence. It is totally untrue. And yet the public is buying it anyway, we are sad to report.

Voters have been cut off from the facts which of course is the point of shutting down the free flow of information. When all the news receive is manufactured propaganda, you are apt to believe it and why wouldn't you believe it? You have no alternative.

Here are the effects. A new Harris survey out today conducted by longtime democratic pollster Mark Penn found that 51 percent of respondents, the majority believe The New York Post is disseminating, quote "Russian disinformation."

It's hard to imagine a scarier or more depressing result than that. You assume the "Today" show and "The View" and the rest of it is just harmless garbage, but it's not harmless. They are liars and their lies have consequences.

How do you maintain a democratic system when reality itself has been banned? That's something we're going to have to figure out.

Glenn Greenwald on resigning from his own publication due to censorship
•Premiered 13 hours ago

Founder of the Intercept, Glenn Greenwald, joins 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' after resigning due to censorship from editorial staff.
Here's The 'Censored' Biden Story That Forced Glenn Greenwald To Quit The Firm He Founded

Fri, 10/30/2020 - 08:15

Via Glenn Greenwald's substack,

I am posting here the most recent draft of my article about Joe and Hunter Biden - the last one seen by Intercept editors before telling me that they refuse to publish it absent major structural changes involving the removal of all sections critical of Joe Biden, leaving only a narrow article critiquing media outlets. I will also, in a separate post, publish all communications I had with Intercept editors surrounding this article so you can see the censorship in action and, given the Intercept's denials, decide for yourselves (this is the kind of transparency responsible journalists provide, and which the Intercept refuses to this day to provide regarding their conduct in the Reality Winner story). This draft obviously would have gone through one more round of proof-reading and editing by me - to shorten it, fix typos, etc - but it's important for the integrity of the claims to publish the draft in unchanged form that Intercept editors last saw, and announced that they would not "edit" but completely gut as a condition to publication:

What you need to know about the FireEye hack: Cybersecurity attack against US government
Nathan Bomey
Kevin Johnson

A devastating cybersecurity attack targeting major branches of the U.S. government has put an untold number of Americans, agencies and government secrets at risk of compromise.

The attackers, which may have been tied to the Russian government, penetrated federal computer systems through a popular piece of server software offered through a company called SolarWinds.

The threat apparently came from the same cyberespionage campaign that has afflicted cybersecurity firm FireEye, foreign governments and major corporations, and the FBI was investigating.

The system is used by hundreds of thousands of organizations globally, including most Fortune 500 companies and multiple U.S. federal agencies, which will now be scrambling to patch up their networks.

The attackers planted malware in computer networks after using what FireEye CEO Kevin Mandia called "a novel combination of techniques not witnessed by us or our partners in the past."

The sophisticated attack breached the Treasury and Commerce departments and potentially other agencies. The Commerce Department said in a statement that it asked the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the FBI to investigate.

The Department of Homeland Security is also reviewing a possible breach at the agency, spokesman Alexei Woltornist said Monday.

"It appears the attackers may have taken our own tools for finding vulnerabilities in foreign networks," said Matthew Schmidt, a professor in the national security department of the University of New Haven's Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences. "They hacked our hacking capability. It's very early, but the level of immediate reaction suggests a very, very serious intrusion."

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Owners of SolarWinds Have Links to Obama, the Clintons, China, Hong Kong and the US Election Process
December 15, 2020

Who owns SolarWinds? This is a good question due to the complicated sales and purchases of related companies and individual owners over the past few years.
Per our research, the owners of SolarWinds are related to the Clintons and companies that verify elections in the US.

If you look up SolarWind's 10K on the SEC website, EDGAR, you'll find that the company was acquired in February 2016 by investment firms Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo. Then in 2018 the company went public through an Initial Public Offering (IPO):

The private owners before taking the company public through the IPO are noted in the company's most recent annual financials (10K) as Silver Lake and Thoma Bravo.

Thoma Bravo

According to Dr. Quigley on Twitter, "the buyout firm, [Thoma Bravo] who now owns SolarWinds was founded by a Puerto Rican billionaire who contributed over $100k to Clinton in 2016. His name is Orlando Bravo."


And as Dr. Quigley mentions, Bravo purchased a company by the name of Entrust in 2009. Entrust has a location in Ottawa, Canada.  But we're not totally sure of this, it may actually be the other way around, but no doubt the two companies are connected.


Thoma Bravo also purchased DigiCert in 2015.  DigiCert and Entrust verify the elections for at least half of the states in the US. Entrust is also closely related to a firm by the name of 'Live Ramp' which is located in Shanghai.


Silver Lake

Dr. Quigley also has done some work on Silver Lake Partners (SLP). SLP Co-founder Glenn Hutchins the other firm that owns SolarWinds. Hutchins is on the Board of ATT and is related to Brookings and is a former advisor to Bill Clinton and is currently on the board of the Obama Foundation:

Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison has moved to Lanai, the Hawaiian island he's spent half a billion dollars developing. Here's how Ellison bought 98% of the island and turned it into a sustainability experiment.
Avery Hartmans
December 20, 2020

    Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison bought 98% of the island of Lanai in 2012 for an estimated $300 million.

    Since then, he's worked to make it a tourist destination, including purchasing budget airline Island Air to ferry passengers from Oahu to Lanai. (He has since sold a controlling interest in the airline).

    Ellison is also hoping to turn Lanai into a wellness utopia. He launched a new company called Sensei, which has two main projects: a hydroponic farm powered by Tesla solar panels, and a luxury spa called Sensei Retreat. Sensei's goal is to use data to help people lead healthier and longer lives.

Now, Ellison has moved to Lanai full time and plans to use "the power of Zoom to work" from the island, he told Oracle employees this week.

A pandemic, like any other crisis, has a way of exposing the chasm between the haves and have-nots, and perhaps the deepest trench right now is the one between the one percenters self-quarantining in dramatic and expensive fashion—and the rest of humanity. While most of us scroll social media and stay glued to cable news, Peter Thiel has a New Zealand hideaway and Jeff Bezos reportedly rules over 300,000 acres in West Texas. We've all probably heard about them, but did we ever really think we'd see them put to use?

In 2017, LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman told The New Yorker that he estimated over 50% of Silicon Valley billionaires already had purchased some kind of apocalypse insurance, like a safe room, bunker, or overseas escape.

Bezos is the new owner of a 13,000-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion, The Wall Street Journal's Katy McLaughlin and Katherine Clarke reported. The home, which was originally designed for Warner Bros. Studios executive Jack Warner in the 1930s, features two guest houses, a tennis court, a swimming pool, and a nine-hole golf course, according to Architectural Digest. Bezos reportedly paid film producer David Geffen $165 million for the estate, which would make it the most expensive home ever sold in California.

EXCLUSIVE: Twitter Insider Records CEO Jack Dorsey Laying Out Roadmap for Future Political Censorship ... 'We Are Focused on One Account [President Trump] Right Now, But This is Going to be Much Bigger Than Just One Account'
January 14, 2021


Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO: "We are focused on one account [@realDonaldTrump] right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it's going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration."

Dorsey: "So, the focus is certainly on this account [@realDonaldTrump] and how it ties to real world violence. But also, we need to think much longer term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don't believe this is going away anytime soon."

[SAN FRANCISCO – Jan. 14, 2021] Project Veritas released a new video today provided by an insider at Twitter who recorded Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey calling for more action against President Trump and his supporters on the platform.
Dorsey: "You know, the U.S. is extremely divided. Our platform is showing that every single day."

The guerilla investigative outfit released Thursday a stunning undercover video of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey talking about how the platform plans to concentrate on more than President Trump's account, which was shuttered on Jan. 8, two days after the U.S. Capitol riots.

In the last week, Twitter has permanently suspended Mr. Trump's account; shut down more than 70,000 accounts identified as spreading QAnon conspiracy theories, and raised the specter of politically motivated censorship as prominent Republicans and conservatives report dramatic decreases in their followers.

Bill Gates Becomes America's Largest Farmland Owner While 'Great Reset" Says Future Is 'No Private Property'
In terms of individual land owners, Gates is still far behind media mogul John C. Malone, who is in top spot with 2.2 million acres of ranches and forests and CNN founder Ted Turner, who owns 2 million acres of ranch land.

Amazon's Jeff Bezos is also "investing in land on a large scale," according to the report

What billionaire philanthropists and technocrats are acquiring land at an accelerating speed, they appear to be telling the general public that in the future private property will virtually cease to exist.

Apparently, you won't be allowed to own any private property and your only recourse will be to live in a state of permanent dependency on a small number of rich elitists who own everything.

That used to be called feudalism, which is a form of slavery.

Academic Study Finds Big-Tech Elites Are In Their "Own Class", Different To Rest Of Humanity
Friday, Jan 22, 2021 - 22:20
Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

An academic study carried out by researchers in the US and Germany has concluded that big-tech elites are completely [IN]-different to all other people on the planet, and can be placed in their own class.

"Our research contributes to closing a research gap in societies with rising inequalities," note the authors of the study from two German universities and the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies in New York.

The research centres around analysing language used in close to 50,000 tweets and other online statements by 100 of the richest tech-elites as listed by Forbes.

The researchers conclude that big-tech elites such as Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates display a 'meritocratic' worldview, meaning they do not see wealth as a source of their influence or success, but rather believe their innate abilities and more altruistic beliefs have enabled them to achieve power.

"We find that the 100 richest members of the tech world reveal distinctive attitudes that set them apart both from the general population and from other wealthy elites," the study states.

He was the only son of Victor Rothschild's second marriage to Theresa Mayor, and heir to the Rothschild dynasty after his older half-brother Jacob.

"Amschel was regularly billed as the heir presumptive to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild for the chairmanship (Sir Evelyn's children being still too young to be candidates), though newspaper reports would be sniffy about his prospects; they implied his profile was too low, that with his gentle manner, he was too 'nice', that he lacked the killer instinct."
There  was  no suicide note, no discernible cause or reason for a finding of suicide,  knowledgeable  sources say.

Rothschild, an athletic and imperious figure in early middle age, was a renowned race car driver

Author: Charles Dickens


Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it: and Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.
QuoteI saw hedge funders literally drinking champagne as they looked down on the Occupy Wall Street protestors. I will never forget that.
I remember when the housing collapse sent a torpedo through my family. My father's concrete company collapsed almost overnight. My father lost his home. My uncle lost his home. I remember my brother helping my father count pocket change on our kitchen table. That was all the money he had left in the world. While this was happening in my home,

My Father never recovered from that blow. He fell deeper and deeper into alcoholism and exists now as a shell of his former self, waiting for death.

This is all the money I have and I'd rather lose it all than give them what they need to destroy me. Taking money from me won't hurt me, because i don't value it at all. I'll burn it all down just to spite them.

This is for you, Dad.

"This Is For You, Dad": Redditor Shares Heartbreaking Reason For Destroying Short-Sellers In WSB Raids

As a new class of activist investors harness the power of crowdsourcing to crush short-sellers betting on the demise of ailing companies, a David vs. Goliath narrative quickly emerged (now with sympathetic billionaires joining the cause).
As these retail investors band together over Reddit's 'Wall Street Bets' forum and other platforms to crush hedge funds by triggering short-squeezes - some turning meager savings accounts into six-figure positions - several have shared very personal stories of just why they're doing this.

Where the bodies are buried
Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) is an American post-trade financial services company providing clearing and settlement services to the financial markets. It performs the exchange of securities on behalf of buyers and sellers and functions as a central securities depository by providing central custody of securities.

DTCC was established in 1999 as a holding company to combine The Depository Trust Company (DTC) and National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC). User-owned and directed, it automates, centralizes, standardizes, and streamlines processes in the capital markets.[3] Through its subsidiaries, DTCC provides clearance, settlement, and information services for equities, corporate and municipal bonds, unit investment trusts, government and mortgage-backed securities, money market instruments, and over-the-counter derivatives. It also manages transactions between mutual funds and insurance carriers and their respective investors.

In 2011, DTCC settled the vast majority of securities transactions in the United States and close to $1.7 quadrillion[4][5][6] in value worldwide, making it by far the highest financial value processor in the world.[6] DTCC operates facilities in the New York metropolitan area, and at multiple locations in and outside the United States.


Established in 1973, The Depository Trust Company (DTC) was created to alleviate the rising volumes of paperwork and the lack of security that developed after rapid growth in the volume of transactions in the U.S. securities industry in the late 1960s.

Before DTC and NSCC were formed, brokers physically exchanged certificates, employing hundreds of messengers to carry certificates and checks. The mechanisms brokers used to transfer securities and keep records relied heavily on pen and paper. The exchange of physical stock certificates was difficult, inefficient, and increasingly expensive.
Two things solved the crisis:

The first was to hold all paper stock certificates in one centralized location, and automate the process by keeping electronic records of all certificates and securities clearing and settlement (changes of ownership and other securities transactions). The method was first used in Austria by the Vienna Giro and Depository Association in 1872

One problem was state laws requiring brokers to deliver certificates to investors. Eventually all the states were convinced that this notion was obsolete and changed their laws. For the most part, investors can still request their certificates, but this has several inconveniences, and most people do not, except for novelty value.

The Toast of New York (1937)
Notorious robber baron financier Jim Fisk, who makes and loses fortunes, tries to corner the gold market as well as the heart of a beautiful actress.
Biography of Jim Fisk, Notorious Robber Baron
The Wall Street schemer lived flamboyantly and died violently

By Robert McNamara
Updated July 21, 2019

Jim Fisk (April 1, 1835–Jan. 7, 1872) was a businessman who became nationally famous for unethical business practices on Wall Street in the late 1860s. He became a partner of the notorious robber baron Jay Gould in the Erie Railroad War of 1867–1868, and he and Gould caused a financial panic with their scheme to corner the gold market in 1869.
Gould and the Gold Corner

In the unregulated financial markets following the Civil War, speculators like Gould and Fisk routinely engaged in manipulation that would be illegal in today's world. And Gould, noticing some quirks in the buying and selling of gold, came up with a scheme by which he, with Fisk's help, could corner the market and control the nation's supply of gold.

Commentary: The Truth About Naked Short Selling
Naked shorting is the illegal practice of short selling shares that have not been affirmatively determined to exist. Ordinarily, traders must borrow a stock, or determine that it can be borrowed before they sell it short. Due to various loopholes in the rules, and discrepancies between paper and electronic trading systems, naked shorting continues to happen.

Is iron possible to make gold? - Quora



The largest treasure of gold coins discovered in Israel was found in recent weeks on the seabed in the ancient harbor in Caesarea National Park. The group of divers from the diving club in the harbor found the lost treasure.

According to them, at first they thought they had spotted a toy coin from a game and it was only after they understood the coin was "the real thing" that they collected several coins and quickly returned to the shore in order to inform the director of the dive club about their find who in turn reported the discovery to the Marine Archaeology Unit of the Israel Antiquities Authority. After quickly organizing, divers of the Israel Antiquities Authority went together with the group of divers out to where the coins were found and using a metal detector discovered almost 2,000 gold coins in different denominations: a dinar, half dinar and quarter dinar, of various dimensions and weight.

Caesarea is one of the most important historic cities in Israel, with excavations spanning from the days of King Herod and the Romans until the Crusader period. It is on our list of the ten must-sees when visiting Israel.

Big Brother Is Spying On You In Thousands Of Ways, And All Of That Info Now Goes Into Centralized "Fusion Systems"

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

Big Brother is watching you. Sadly, most people don't realize how extensive the surveillance grid has now become.  As you drive to work or to school, license plate readers are systematically tracking where you travel.  In major cities, thousands of highly advanced security cameras (many equipped with facial recognition technology) are monitoring your every move.  If authorities detect that you are doing something suspicious, they can quickly pull up your criminal, financial and medical records. 

Of course if they want to dig deeper, your phone and your computer are constantly producing a treasure trove of surveillance data.  Nothing that you do on either one of them is ever private.

In the past, compiling all of that information would take a great deal of time.  But now tech giants such as Microsoft, Motorola, Cisco and Palantir are selling "fusion systems" to governments all over the planet.  These "fusion systems" can instantly integrate surveillance data from thousands of different sources, and this has totally transformed how law enforcement is conducted in many of our largest cities.


On the other side of the Atlantic, a joint European surveillance project known as ROXANNE is causing a great deal of concern...

    An acronym for Real time netwOrk, teXt, and speaker ANalytics for combating orgaNized crimE, it was announced in November the Republic's involvement in the project currently being developed in Switzerland.

    A biometrics based platform ostensibly to monitor and crack down on organised crime, an additional application of ROXANNE which its creators advertise freely is the ability to monitor those guilty of alleged hate speech and political extremism.

Strict new laws against "hate speech" and "political extremism" are being instituted all over Europe, and this new tool will help to track down "thought criminals".

In particular, this new tool will be heavily monitoring "social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube as well as normal telecommunications platforms"...

    A product of the EU funded Horizon 2020 to foster new surveillance technology, ROXANNE works across social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube as well as normal telecommunications platforms to identify, categorise, and track faces and voices enabling authorities to paint a more in depth picture of the network being investigated, whether it be in relation to criminal activity or those deemed politically extreme.

    Enabling authorities to draw on raw data from a variety of sources and platforms in order to recognise common speech patterns, facial features, and geolocation, the end result is both to identify suspects and paint an intricate picture of the networks being put under the microscope.

So if you live in Europe and you think that you might be guilty of "thought crime" at some point, you might want to get rid of your phone and your computer.

USSA - Stalin's Soviet Deportations / Immigration Policy  -  mass importations from Latin America.

Stalin's Ethnic Deportations—and the Gerrymandered Ethnic Map

An earlier GeoCurrents post on Chechnya mentioned that the Chechens were deported from their homeland in the North Caucasus to Central Asia in February 1944. However, the Chechen nation was not the only one to suffer such a fate under Stalin's regime.

The early Bolsheviks generally believed that a nationality had to be associated with a distinct territory, rejecting the "extraterritorial national-cultural autonomy" approach, championed by Austrian Marxists like Otto Bauer. Thus, Lenin and his successors sought to provide a degree of territorially based autonomy to the country's various ethno-national groups, assuming that the entire system would eventually wither away as a new pan-Soviet society emerged.

But for Stalin, such a Soviet identity could not emerge fast enough to suit his purposes. As a result, he took to gerrymandering the country's ethnic map by moving whole nationalities around like chess pieces on the board (Pohl 1999).

The ultimate motivation behind Stalin's policy of continuing deportation, however, was twofold.

First, the need for cheap labor to explore and exploit the natural resources of Siberia and
to speed up Soviet industrialization program meant that increasing numbers of people had to be sent wherever those economic needs arose.
Most of the mass deportation occurred in 1930s and 1940s, when numerous ethnic groups were removed from their historical homelands.
In 1939, the Soviets  invaded and annexed eastern Poland (known as Kresy to the Polish) just as the German invaded western Poland, marking the official start of World War II in 1939. From 1939 to 1941, nearly 1.5 million people were deported from this region by the Soviet regime, including more than 900,000 Poles. Estimates of the number of Poles who died at the hands of the Soviets range from 350,000 to nearly a million.
After Stalin's death, Nikita Khrushchev's government "rehabilitated" most of the exiled ethnic groups, permitting some to return to their homelands

Quote from: tahoeblue on Apr 21, 2021, 12:25:18 PMIn 1939, the Soviets  invaded and annexed eastern Poland... 

I am have no interest to defend Stalin. After all in September 1944 Stalin sent Soviet Armies in Serbia to install leader of Communist Party of Yugoslavia Josip Broz Tito that he would establish a communist regime first in Serbia and then in the whole of Yugoslavia. And that's what happened.

But, Although vile, from behind, Stalin orders an Soviet Army into the west of the Republic of Poland, these are countries with a majority Russian population: Belarus and part of Ukraine.

As for Khrushchev, he is, in order to take revenge Stalin for his personal humiliation, took Crimea from the Soviet Republic of Russia and given to the Soviet Republic of Ukraine. His "revenge on Stalin" brought the whole world into crisis.

I do not know why
are you defending Khrushchev so much? Are you remember the "Cuban crisis" which could have led to WW3?

P.S. I will also write about the Chechens who had their Republic in the USSR and they still have it today in the Russian Federation.

Zuckerberg Gobbles Up Another Big Chunk of Hawaii Beachfront
Tarpley Hitt
Fri, April 30, 2021, 12:31 PM

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan have nearly doubled their controversial land holdings in Hawaii, after buying almost 600 acres on Kauai from a non-profit for $53 million.

The deal, which closed on March 19, according to deeds first reported by Pacific Business News, comprises three parcels, including the remote northern waterfront known as Larsen's Beach. The road to the beach was not included in the sale, and the public still has access. Zuckerberg's other Hawaii property also fronts a public beach, but as The Daily Beast has reported, it's accessible by a single labyrinthine road.

The couple bought the property from a non-profit called Waioli Corporation, dedicated to preserving historic sites and land, which was established by the Wilcoxes, an old Hawaiian missionary family dating back to the 1840s.

Known as the "Lepeuli ahupua'a," the property houses several "reef, sea, avian, flora and historical collections in their unaltered native habitat," according to the Waioli Corporation website.

 After the Facebook CEO bought his first Hawaiian estate back in 2015—a 700-acre property also on Kauai—he ran into problems with the many families who owned smaller parcels within the compound. These residents were "kamaaina families," or Hawaiian descendants who had inherited the land without a formal deed or will.

In response, Zuckerberg filed several lawsuits aimed at evicting the families by forcing them to sell their land at a public auction. He later dropped the lawsuits and apologized with an op-ed in the island's newspaper. But others later accused him of hiring a local professor named Carlos Andrade to continue the battle on his behalf, using a shell corporation owned by Zuckerberg to file separate lawsuits.

This piece has been updated to include a comment from Chan and Zuckerberg's spokesperson.

Update (1330): Even before the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, the company searched for a cyber-security chief, according to Bloomberg.

Colonial posted a job listing on LinkedIn and other job-seeking websites detailing the need for someone with a master's degree in computer science to develop and support "an incident response plan and processes to address potential threats."

"The cybersecurity position was not created due to the recent ransomware attack," Colonial told Bloomberg in an email. "We have several positions open as part of our longer-term growth strategy around talent, as we are constantly recruiting top-tier talent across all functional areas of our business."

The ransomware attack has entered the fifth day, severing almost half of the gasoline and diesel supply for the East Coast. Seventeen states and Washington, DC, declared emergency declarations to address fuel shortages.

The emergency declaration covers Alabama, Arkansas, D.C., Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

The company will provide more guidance on when the pipeline will restart by the end of the day.

Censorship, Surveillance and Profits: A Hard Bargain for Apple in China

Apple built the world's most valuable business on top of China. Now it has to answer to the Chinese government.
By Jack Nicas, Raymond Zhong and Daisuke Wakabayashi
May 17, 2021

Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, has said the data is safe. But at the data center in Guiyang, which Apple hoped would be completed by next month, and another in the Inner Mongolia region, Apple has largely ceded control to the Chinese government.

Chinese state employees physically manage the computers. Apple abandoned the encryption technology it used elsewhere after China would not allow it. And the digital keys that unlock information on those computers are stored in the data centers they're meant to secure.

Internal Apple documents reviewed by The New York Times, interviews with 17 current and former Apple employees and four security experts, and new filings made in a court case in the United States last week provide rare insight into the compromises Mr. Cook has made to do business in China. They offer an extensive inside look — many aspects of which have never been reported before — at how Apple has given in to escalating demands from the Chinese authorities.

Two decades ago, as Apple's operations chief, Mr. Cook spearheaded the company's entrance into China, a move that helped make Apple the most valuable company in the world and made him the heir apparent to Steve Jobs. Apple now assembles nearly all of its products and earns a fifth of its revenue in the China region. But just as Mr. Cook figured out how to make China work for Apple, China is making Apple work for the Chinese government.

Exclusive: Bombshell Photos Reveal Years of Meetings Between Bloomberg Executives and Chinese Propagandists in Beijing
Alexander Marlow
17 May 2021

Michael Bloomberg and his top associates at his namesake news conglomerate, Bloomberg LP, have regularly met in Beijing with top Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials and propagandists, according to the Chinese government. I document these meetings, which have taken place over several years, in my book Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media's Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption, released May 18th.

According to documents reviewed while researching for this book, these propagandists regulate Bloomberg LP and control the extent to which the former Democrat mega-donor-turned presidential candidate's business can access the gigantic Chinese market. Michael Bloomberg himself has spoken favorably—even glowingly—about China, President Xi Jinping, and other top Beijing officials. Bloomberg LP seemingly does a lot more business with China than its competitors.
Why Bloomberg's China Connections Are So Important
By American Daily Journal -
May 19, 2021

Yesterday's revelations about the extensive contacts between Bloomberg officials and China's propagandists are more important than many of our readers may know.
Years ago a scandal erupted when it was discovered Bloomberg News reporters had been able to use their access to users' terminal data to see when someone had last logged into their Bloomberg account. This allowed reporters to deduce who had left their jobs or been let go, allowing Bloomberg News to break stories about shifts in the leadership of Wall Street firms
That is likely one reason why there has been so little reporting on Bloomberg's connections to China. Fortunately, in Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media's Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption, Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow peels back the veil to reveal years of meetings between Bloomberg officials and top Chinese officials. According to documents reviewed by Marlow, "these propagandists regulate Bloomberg LP and control the extent to which the former Democrat mega-donor-turned presidential candidate's business can access the gigantic Chinese market. Michael Bloomberg himself has spoken favorably — even glowingly — about China, President Xi Jinping, and other top Beijing officials. Bloomberg LP seemingly does a lot more business with China than its competitors."

China's influence over a company as powerful and influential as Bloomberg should be a matter of grave public concern.
For years, it was kept from the public eye. Now it is being dragged into the sunlight for all to see.

Tim Cook took a subtle swipe at Google over how Apple does business in China
Isobel Asher Hamilton
Oct 3, 2018, 10:26 AM

    Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview with Vice that Apple views data privacy as a human right, and encrypts data the same way in China as it does in every other country.
    He said that while Chinese laws mean Apple stores the data of citizens in China, the data is still secure.
    Cook's emphasis on resisting privacy intrusions in China could be seen as a subtle swipe at Google, which is working on plans to launch a censored search engine for the Chinese market.

Tim Cook has stressed that Apple does not bend the way it does business in China — and it could be seen as a subtle swipe at Google.

Battelle Neuro Team Advances to Phase II of DARPA N3 Program
December 15, 2020

A Battelle team of researchers has received funding to continue work on the second of a three-phase Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program called Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3).

The program is designed for teams around the country to develop a high-performance, bi-directional brain-computer interface (BCI) for noninvasive clinical applications or for use by able-bodied members of the military. Such neural interfaces would provide the enabling technology for diverse medical and national security applications and could enable enhanced multitasking during complex military missions.

Battelle-Led Team Wins DARPA Award to Develop Injectable, Bi-Directional Brain Computer Interface
May 20, 2019

Battelle has for years successfully demonstrated brain-computer interface (BCI) projects—just look at NeuroLife®, which has enabled a quadriplegic man to move his hand again using his thoughts. Now, the government's forward-thinking Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded a contract to a Battelle-led team that pushes researchers into the realm of what was once considered science fiction.
... the basis for this effort for DARPA's Next-Generation Non-Surgical Neurotechnology (N 3 ) program. The N 3 program seeks development of high-performance, bi-directional brain-machine interfaces for able-bodied service members. Most of the current BCI research, including Battelle's NeuroLife technology, focuses on helping people with disabilities who must undergo invasive implant procedures, including brain surgery, to enable a BCI that can restore lost function. For the next BCI leap, in which the technology can be used by healthy military service members, it's imperative to find lower-risk and less-invasive options.

In April 2013, the President announced the launch of the BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative® – a bold, new initiative focused on revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain.


The BRAIN Initiative has the potential to do for neuroscience what the Human Genome Project did for genomics by supporting the development and application of innovative technologies that can create a dynamic understanding of brain function. It aims to help researchers uncover the mysteries of brain disorders, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, depression, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Mind Control: From Nazis to DARPA
David Salinas Flores*


Mind control is a reductive process in which a man is reduced to an animal, machine or slave. The basic ideas of mind control originated in Tavistock and then they were developed in Germany, mainly in Dachau's Nazi concentration camp.

The Operation Paperclip recruited to the Nazi scientists who experienced the mental control in prisoners of Dachau thus Nazis participated in US mind control programs. Nowadays, recent researches give evidences of a classified US world mind control weapon program in full development organized by DARPA in illicit association with corrupt government's American universities, technology transnational's and mafias of prosecutors.

DARPA's organized crime is developing a secret, forced and illicit neuroscientific human experimentation with invasive neurotechnology as brain nanobots, microchips and implants to execute mind control. It is necessary that world society is informed on the truth about the mind control and that the honest authorities take the preventive measures to block the massive mind control that DARPA is developing in the world.



The Brain initiative

Recently, the president of the United States of North America, Barack Obama, has presented the BRAIN Project. DARPA is main partner of this project [18]. DARPA has invested more than $500 million in support of the White House Brain Initiative since it was announced in 2013 [17]. Rafael Yuste, an main scientist of the BRAIN initiative has publicly stated that the main objective of the project is manipulate neurons, therefore there is suspect that BRAIN initiative is a secret research program of mind control that is being developed in Latin America [3,13,19,20]. The BRAIN project initials mean "Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies". Recent research suspects that this "Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies" of the brain project are really brain nanobots [3], therefore the brain initiative aims to be a mind control program with brain nanobots.

"The Tissue-Culture King" is a short story by Julian Huxley first published in The Yale Review in Apr. 1926
, and later in Amazing Stories, Aug. 1927. It's notable for containing reputedly the earliest use in fiction of an anti-mind-control foil deflector beanie -- colloquially known among orthonoids as a "tinfoil hat".

The story is about an Englishman in Africa named Hascombe, "lately research worker at Middlesex Hospital, now religious adviser to His Majesty King Mgobe". After being captured while lost in King Mgobe's territory, he ingratiates himself into a place of social prominence by using his knowledge of tissue culturing to conduct bizarre medical experiments on animals, and later people, that officials and the public find both entertaining and theologically practical.
Besides culturing their tissues, Hascombe creates "incredible animal monstrosities" (or "Living Fetishes"), such as two-headed toads and three-headed snakes, and even starts endocrinological experiments on humans, creating eight-feet-high "sacred bodyguards", dwarf acolytes, mustached prophetesses, and obese Vestal Virgins who, with further research, he is sure can reproduce by parthenogenesis.
Hascombe years later after also being captured) convinces Hascombe that they should escape back to Europe using the now fully operational super-consciousness to issue a nation-wide "Sleep" command.
Here Huxley explains how Hascombe and the narrator protect themselves from their own mind-control with deflector beanies:

    The reader will perhaps ask how we ourselves expected to escape from the clutches of the super-consciousness we had created. Well, we had discovered that metal was relatively impervious to the telepathic effect, and had prepared for ourselves a sort of tin pulpit, behind which we could stand while conducting experiments. This, combined with caps of metal foil, enormously reduced the effects on ourselves. We had not informed Bugala of this property of metal.


    We with our metal coverings were immune. But Bugala was struck by the full force of the mental current. He sank back on his chair, helpless. For a few minutes his extraordinary will resisted the suggestion. Although he could not move, his angry eyes were open. But at length he succumbed, and he too slept.

May 13, 2021

Why are magnets sticking to the COVID vaxxed?

Yet another truly bizarre and strange COVID phenomenon has occurred, following on from the bizarre sensation of unvaccinated people suffering ill effects just being around the COVID vaxxed, possibly due to frequency change. This time the phenomenon revolves around magnetism not frequency, although electricity and magnetism are 2 aspects of the same force, called electromagnetism.

A number of people are reporting, with video proof, that when they apply a small magnet to their injection site (usually the upper arm), right where they got injected with the COVID non-vaccine (which is a gene-altering device and not a real vaccine), the magnet is sticking!

Is This COVID Vaxxed Magnet Phenomenon Evidence of Magnetic Nanoparticles?

The acronym MRI stands for Medical Resonance Imagery and, for those who don't know, involves using a magnetic field and computer-generated radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues in your body. You have to lay down in a chamber while the procedure happens.

Jim writes:

"I have now confirmed the shot probably contains nanobots, because you are supposed to wait 6 – 10 WEEKS after the shot before you get a MRI most likely because the nanobots have to disperse or the MRI will rip your arm apart ..."

In my earlier article on hydrogel produced by DARPA and Profusa, I quoted a military article which talked about how the hydrogel would be composed of 2 parts – "polymer chains" and "an electronic component."

It would appear that the nanotechnology being deployed in these COVID non-vaccines has a metallic element, however as this article reveals, nanoparticles are composed of synthetic plastics, ceramic particles, metallic particles, sol-gel compounds (gel-like substances made partially from solid particles) and much more – even gases which are condensed and coagulated.

Federal Judge Overturns California's Ban On Assult Weapons

Liberals are probably having a meltdown after a George W. Bush-appointed federal judge in California ruled the state's ban on assault weapons is unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego released a 94-page ruling late Friday, indicating California's three-decade ban on assault weapons violates the Second Amendment's right to bear arms.

    "Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment. Good for both home and battle, the AR-15 is the kind of versatile gun that lies at the intersection of the kinds of firearms protected under District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) and the United States v Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939)," Benitez wrote.

    "Yet, the State of California makes it a crime to have an AR15 type rifle," Benitez continued. "Therefore, this Court declares the California statutes to be unconstitutional."

On several pages of the ruling, the judge recommended the rifle should be protected under the Second Amendment for its "militia readiness."

    "Government is not free to impose its own new policy choices on American citizens where constitutional rights are concerned," he added. "California may certainly conceive of a policy that a modern rifle is dangerous in the hands of a criminal, and that therefore it is good public policy to keep modern rifles out of the hands of every citizen. The Second Amendment stands as a shield from government imposition of that policy."

Dane Wigington Shows How The Weather Terrorists
Are Incinerating Our Planetary Life Support Systems

The weather terrorists have just scheduled yet another heat wave for the Western US (which will fallow the current incineration), while utilizing diverted moisture to cool AK and the Eastern US, (yet again, links below provide detail).

Its about to get real, many factors are already far past the breaking point. Every single day that the climate engineering assault is allowed to continue diminishes any chance we may still have of salvaging any part of the planets remaining life support systems. - DW

Climate Engineering Weather Warfare, and the Collapse of Civilization
January 31, 2014    

Planet Earth is under an all out weather warfare assault.

In this video, Dane Wigington gives another presentation in Northern California on the harmful effects of Geoengineering, declaring that there is virtually NO NATURAL WEATHER due to the massive global climate engineering.

WEATHER WARFARE: 'Termination Event', The Global Siege Of Mother Earth
The Smoking Man / 6 days ago

Source –

    "...The systematic dismantling of one of the world's most productive agriculture regions, using the seductive mantra of "environmental protection," fits into the larger agenda of the Davos Great Reset and its plans to radically transform world agriculture into what the UN Agenda 2030 calls "sustainable" agriculture—no more meat protein"


Which brings us to the second article shared by M.W. by one of my favorite researchers, F. William Engdahl:

A Sinister Agenda Behind California Water Crisis?

Engdahl minces no words here, and points to insane government policies exacerbating the trends of mother nature:

    In recent months a crisis situation in the USA food supply has been growing and is about to assume alarming dimensions that could become catastrophic. Atop the existing corona pandemic lockdowns and unemployment, a looming agriculture crisis as well could tip inflation measures to cause a financial crisis as interest rates rise. The ingredients are many, but central is asevere drought in key growing states of the Dakotas and Southwest, including agriculture-intensive California. So far Washington has done disturbingly little to address the crisis and California Water Board officials have been making the crisis far worse by draining the state water reservoirs...into the ocean.

    So far the worst hit farm state is North Dakota which grows most of the nation's Red Spring Wheat. In the Upper Midwest, the Northern Plains states and the Prairie provinces of Canada winter brought far too little snow following a 2020 exceedingly dry summer. The result is drought from Manitoba Canada to the Northern USA Plains States. This hits farmers in the region just four years after a flash drought in 2017 arrived without early warning and devastated the US Northern Great Plains region comprising Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the adjacent Canadian Prairies.

    As of May 27, according to Adnan Akyuz, State Climatologist, ninety-three percent of the North Dakota state is in at least a Severe Drought category, and 77% of the state is in an Extreme Drought category. Farm organizations predict unless the rainfall changes dramatically in the coming weeks, the harvest of wheat widely used for pasta and flour will be a disaster. The extreme dry conditions extend north of the Dakota border into Manitoba, Canada, another major grain and farming region, especially for wheat and corn. There, the lack of rainfall and warmer-than-normal temperatures threaten harvests, though it is still early for those crops. North Dakota and the plains region depend on snow and rainfall for its agriculture water.

So much might be ascribed to the solar minimum, to changing conditions in the Earth's magneto-sphere and other systematic conditions. But when it comes to California, it gets much worse:

    Few outside California realize that the state most known for Silicon Valley and beautiful beaches is such a vital source of agriculture production. California's agricultural sector is the most important in the United States, leading the nation's production in over 77 different products including dairy and a number of fruit and vegetable "specialty" crops. The state is the only producer of crops such as almonds, artichokes, persimmons, raisins, and walnuts. California grows a third of the country's vegetables and two thirds of the country's fruits and nuts. It leads all other states in farm income with77,500 farms and ranches. It also is second in production of livestock behind Texas, and its dairy industry is California's leading commodity in cash receipts. In total, 43 million acres of the state's 100 million acres are devoted to agriculture. In short what happens here is vital to the nation's food supply.

    The water crisis in California is far the most serious in terms of consequences for the food supply, in a period when the US faces major supply chain disruptions owing to absurd corona lockdowns combined with highly suspicious hacks of key infrastructure. On May 31, the infrastructure of the world's largest meat processor, JBS SA, was hacked, forcing the shutdown of all its US beef plants that supply almost a quarter of American beef.

    The Green lobby is asserting, while presenting no factual evidence, that Global Warming, i.e. increased CO2 manmade emission, is causing the drought. The NOAA examined the case and found no evidence. But the media repeats the narrative to advance the Green New Deal agenda with frightening statements such as claiming the drought is, "comparable to the worst mega-droughts since 800 CE."


  In June 2019 Shasta Dam, holding the state's largest reservoir as a keystone of the huge Central Valley Project, was full to 98% of capacity. Just two years later in May 2021 Shasta Lake reservoir held a mere 42% of capacity, almost 60% down. Similarly, in June 2019 Oroville Dam reservoir, the second largest, held water at 98% of capacity and by May 2021 was down to just 37%. Other smaller reservoirs saw similar drops. Where has all the water gone?

    Allegedly to "save" these fish varieties, during just 14 days in May, according to Kristi Diener, a California water expert and farmer, "90% of (Bay Area) Delta inflow went to sea. It's equal to a year's supply of water for 1 million people." Diener has been warning repeatedly in recent years that water is unnecessarily being let out to sea as the state faces a normal dry year. She asks, "Should we be having water shortages in the start of our second dry year? No. Our reservoirs were designed to provide a steady five year supply for all users, and were filled to the top in June 2019."

  In 2008, at the demand of environmental groups such as the NRDC, a California judge ordered that the Central Valley Water project send 50% of water reservoirs to the Pacific Ocean to "save" an endangered salmon variety, even though the NGO admitted that no more than 1,000 salmon would likely be saved by the extreme measure. In the years 1998-2005 an estimated average of 49% of California managed water supply went to what is termed the "environment," including feeding into streams and rivers, to feed estuaries and the Bay Area Delta. Only 28% went directly to maintain agriculture water supplies.

One could go on and on, and indeed, Engdahl does. And I've seen the devastation of California agriculture of which he writes up close and personal.

Oh so this gets us to "CLIMATE LOCKDOWNS"!!!!
Avoiding a climate lockdown

Published: 21 Oct 2020
Author: Mariana Mazzucato
Type: Insight

This article was originally published by Project Syndicate and reposted by WBCSD

Mariana Mazzucato, Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London, is Founding Director of the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose. She is the author of The Value of Everything: Making and Taking in the Global Economy, The Entrepreneurial State: Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths, and, most recently, Mission Economy: A Moonshot Guide to Changing Capitalism.

As COVID-19 spread earlier this year, governments introduced lockdowns in order to prevent a public-health emergency from spinning out of control. In the near future, the world may need to resort to lockdowns again – this time to tackle a climate emergency.
Shifting Arctic ice, raging wildfires in western US states and elsewhere, and methane leaks in the North Sea are all warning signs that we are approaching a tipping point on climate change, when protecting the future of civilization will require dramatic interventions.

Under a "climate lockdown," governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling. To avoid such a scenario, we must overhaul our economic structures and do capitalism differently.

Many think of the climate crisis as distinct from the health and economic crises caused by the pandemic. But the three crises – and their solutions – are interconnected.

COVID-19 is itself a consequence of environmental degradation: one recent study dubbed it "the disease of the Anthropocene." Moreover, climate change will exacerbate the social and economic problems highlighted by the pandemic. These include governments' diminishing capacity to address public-health crises, the private sector's limited ability to withstand sustained economic disruption, and pervasive social inequality.

These shortcomings reflect the distorted values underlying our priorities. For example, we demand the most from "essential workers" (including nurses, supermarket workers, and delivery drivers) while paying them the least. Without fundamental change, climate change will worsen such problems.

The climate crisis is also a public-health crisis. Global warming will cause drinking water to degrade and enable pollution-linked respiratory diseases to thrive. According to some projections, 3.5 billion people globally will live in unbearable heat by 2070.

Addressing this triple crisis requires reorienting corporate governance, finance, policy, and energy systems toward a green economic transformation. To achieve this, three obstacles must be removed: business that is shareholder-driven instead of stakeholder-driven, finance that is used in inadequate and inappropriate ways, and government that is based on outdated economic thinking and faulty assumptions.

Corporate governance must now reflect stakeholders' needs instead of shareholders' whims. Building an inclusive, sustainable economy depends on productive cooperation among the public and private sectors and civil society. This means firms need to listen to trade unions and workers' collectives, community groups, consumer advocates, and others.
The window for launching a climate revolution – and achieving an inclusive recovery from COVID-19 in the process – is rapidly closing. We need to move quickly if we want to transform the future of work, transit, and energy use, and make the concept of a "green good life" a reality for generations to come. One way or the other, radical change is inevitable; our task is to ensure that we achieve the change we want – while we still have the choice.

Laura Ingraham: Left Used COVID Lockdowns To Groom Public For Climate Change Lockdowns
The Fox News host told her crooked conspiracy theory with a straight face.
By Ron Dicker
 POLITICS 05/19/2021 10:10 am ET

Laura Ingraham asserted Tuesday that the left used COVID-19 lockdowns to condition the public for future lockdowns related to climate change. (Watch the video below.)

"The climate agenda isn't really about saving the planet, it's about controlling the people," the Fox News host said on "The Ingraham Angle."

Ingraham used a new International Energy Agency report as a jumping-off point into her conspiracy theory. The IEA called for urgent action to alter the energy industry, and that included the elimination of new investments in coal mines, oil and gas wells to curb greenhouse gases, The Associated Press reported.

Ingraham quoted seemingly innocuous wording by the IEA about how the pandemic proved that people can change behavior if they think it's for their own good, and how green-friendly urban planning could "shape lifestyle changes" and influence behavior.

NSA spying scandal: what we have learned
This article is more than 8 years old
Key players and programmes in the National Security Agency's secret operation mining phone and internet data

The US National Security Agency (NSA) has been empowered by a secret order issued by the foreign intelligence court directing Verizon Communications, a mobile phone provider with 98.9 million wireless customers, to turn over all its call records for a three-month period.

The order is untargeted, meaning that the NSA can snoop on calls without suspecting anyone of wrongdoing. It was made on 25 April, days after the Boston Marathon bombing.

Under the order, the NSA only gains access to the "metadata" around calls – when they were made, what numbers they were made to, where they were made from and how long the calls lasted.

Obtaining the content of the calls, or the names or addresses of the callers would make the surveillance wiretapping, which would count as a separate issue legally. The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that the data collection of mobile phone records extends to AT&T (107 million users) and Sprint (55 million). Verizon's advertising catchphrase "Can you hear me now?" has become the butt of instant jokes on Twitter and other social media.

Internal NSA documents claim the top secret data-mining programme gives the US government access to a vast quantity of emails, chat logs and other data directly from the servers of nine internet companies. These include Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, AOL and Apple. The companies mentioned have all denied knowledge of or participation in the programme.

It is unknown how Prism actually works. A 41-slide PowerPoint presentation obtained by the Guardian – and classified as top secret with no distribution to foreign allies – was apparently used to train intelligence operatives on the capabilities of the programme. Unlike the collection of Verizon and other phone records, Prism surveillance can include the content of communications – not just metadata.

President Barack Obama described the programmes as vital to keeping Americans safe and said the US was "going to have to make some choices between balancing privacy and security to protect against terror". The NSA access was enabled by changes to US surveillance law introduced under President George Bush and renewed under Obama in December 2012.
Boundless Informant

Prism is involved in the collection of data, but Boundless Informant organises and indexes metadata. The tool categorises communications records rather than the content of a message itself. A fact sheet leaked to the Guardian explains that almost 3bn pieces of intelligence had been collected from US computer networks in the 30-day period ending in March this year, as well as indexing almost 100bn pieces worldwide. Countries are ranked according to how much information has been taken from mobile and online networks, and colour-coded depending on the extent of the NSA's spying operation.

On June 5, millions of Americans learned the U.S. government was collecting and storing information about their phone calls thanks to documents from former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden. And over the following months, a barrage of stories revealing the extent of state-sponsored surveillance activities has held the front page of newspapers around the world captive.


Tapping the Internet backbone. Not content with information collected from online service providers, the NSA also engages in "upstream collection" by tapping into fiber optic cables and other core Internet infrastructure. It also appears to be sifting through the content of e-mail and text communication as it flows across the U.S. border. While this surveillance officially targets foreigners, the communications of Americans may also be swept up, since some online services store Americans' data on overseas servers.
Breaking its own privacy rules. The NSA broke its own privacy rules thousands of times per year according to internal audits. In a particularly unsettling revelation, NSA officers abused surveillance powers to snoop on romantic interests. The practice was common enough it had its own slang: LOVEINT. The secret court that oversees the NSA's spying programs also rebuked the agency for repeatedly misleading it about the scope of surveillance.
... 2013 is the year the NSA's surveillance capabilities were laid bare, perhaps 2014 will be the year the public figures out how to deal with it. As President Obama said, "we're going to have to make some choices as a society."

San Fran gay men's choir sings "WE'RE COMING FOR YOUR CHILDREN" in new music video
Jul 8, 2021

19 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.

11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:

13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.

14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

President Joe Biden dropped to his knees during a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at the White House on Monday, in an exceedingly bizarre and embarrassing show of desperation.

President Rivlin and his chief of staff Rivka Ravitz could be seen laughing at Biden during the humiliating display.


"Finally, something that truly meets the definition of the sanctification of God," Yossi Elituv of Michpacha tweeted (as translated by Google). "President Biden kneels in honor of the ultra-Orthodox Rebecca Ravitz, who combines two important careers: a mother of 12 children, and the head of the outgoing staff at the President's House. Ravitz will continue to sail far."

The Israeli paper claimed on Friday that Biden "knelt in honor" after Ravitz told him that she has "no less than 12 children."
"My commitment to Israel is known and engraved in the rock," Biden said as reported by Kipa and translated by Google. "Includes an unquestionable commitment to Israel's self-defense. I can say that Iran will never receive nuclear weapons on my watch."

In 2015, Rivkah was praised by Orthodox Jewish papers after she refused to bow to the Pope because "she was halachically forbidden to bow to him because of the cross" and refused to shake his hand "because she is observant of halakha (Jewish law)," according to Israel National News.

The Pope reportedly responded by covering his cross with his hand and bowing to her.

Robert Maxwell, Promisgate, and the advent of the Israeli cybersecurity industry
Jun 07, 2019

After the Nazis lost World War 2, the Allies freely expropriated and reproduced German technology while Germany was left in the ashes

Stolen German technologies that we use today included guided weapons, long-range missiles, airborne units, synchropters, rockets, jet powered aircrafts, and the first cassette players to name a few. The Allies were not the only ones stealing German patents; the Soviets got a piece of the pie as well, through British media tycoon Robert Maxwell.
Maxwell would spend a considerable amount of time in the Russian sector of occupied Germany, which made British and American intelligence question his loyalty.
Springer Verlag then merged with the British Butterworth Publishing Company to form the Butterworth-Springer Publishing Company. Maxwell then bought 3/4th of Butterworth Springer, while the remaining 1/4th was bought by the Jewish scientific advisor, Paul Rosbaud. They then changed the company's name to Pergamon Press. The sale was brokered by the prominent Jewish banker and MI6 agent, Charles Hambro according to British journalist, Stephen Dorril. Hambro 'acted as head of the 'British raw materials mission' in Washington, a cover for exchanging information and technology between Britain and the United States which led to the detonation of the first Atomic Bomb as part of the Manhattan Project, which was run by Soviet Jewish agents.
Origin of Promis software

Promis (Prosecutors Management Information Systems) was originally the DOJ's case management information system in the 1970s. It was developed through contracts and grants from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) to a small information technology firm named Inslaw (Institute for Law and Social Research) run by William and Nancy Hamilton. Before founding Inslaw, Hamilton was a contractor in the R&D unit of the NSA who set up listening posts to monitor the Viet Cong during the Vietnam war. Hamilton, who was fluent in Vietnamese, also worked on creating a computerized English-Vietnamese dictionary for the agency. After developing Promis for the DOJ, Congress voted to abolish LEAA. The Hamiltons then bought Inslaw and converted it into a for profit corporation. They decided to invest their own money into creating an upgraded version of Promis they named "Enhanced Promis" due to the significant enhancements.
Relational databases emerged in the 1970s with companies like IBM, Oracle, and Microsoft developing basic versions. Enhanced Promis was a game changer; it was the best relational database on the market. PROMIS could have made the Hamiltons into multi-millionaires. Due to their love of their country and their "unassailable belief in the Constitution and those it served", they sought to have the federal government be their first client. (Thomas 34)
Brewer told Hamilton that he was sending a visitor to Inslaw's headquarters in Washington D.C. The visitor was named Dr. Orr, a supposed Israeli public prosecutor. That was his alias. His real name was Rafi Eitan, the infamous deputy director of operations for the Mossad.

Eitan had conducted numerous Israeli espionage operations against the United States, including the NUMEC affair in which Israel illegally diverted 200-600 pounds of government owned highly enriched uranium to Israel for Israel's clandestine nuclear weapons program, and the Jonathan Pollard spy case in which a Jewish Zionist senior analyst in the Navy Field Operational Intelligence Office "read and copied and transmitted every worthwhile secret the United States possessed ' and passed them on to the Soviets via Israel.' (Thomas 31) The CIA named Pollard as the most damaging spy in US history, and Rafi Eitan was his handler.

Those two cases are the most well known Israeli espionage operations against the United States, but they were just the tip of the iceberg.
DOJ/Israel's Theft of Promis

Promis was put to use by the Justice Department in the early 1980s through a contract with Inslaw. The Department withheld millions of dollars in lease payments which forced Inslaw to file for bankruptcy. With Inslaw effectively destroyed, the DOJ, then headed by Attorney General Edwin Meese IIIÂ transferred Promis to the NSA and CIA who put a backdoor in the software through Michael Riconosciuto, a computer and electronics expert who claimed to have also reprogrammed the software. With this backdoor in place, the CIA secretly installed Promis in the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Switzerland to "keep track of electronic fund transfers to combat money-laundering and other criminal activities, including drug trafficking, securities and banking frauds and political payoffs. The CIA also began to furnish the software to its agents in the field to track data." (Thomas 49)
Israel Backdoors Promis

The United States was not the only country to place a backdoor into Promis. As previously mentioned, in 1983, the Hamiltons were visited by Rafi Eitan posing as a public prosecutor from Israel named Dr. Ben Orr. Orr told them that he was impressed with Promis and was looking to purchase it. It later came out that Dr. Ben Orr was the alias for none other than the infamous Israeli intelligence agent Rafi Eitan. Eitan left the meeting without buying Promis, but he was able to get a free copy through Earl Brian.

After Eitan got his hands on Promis, he worked through former Mossad agent, Iranian Jew Ari-Ben Menashe, who reached out to a Jewish Silicon Valley computer engineer, Yehuda Ben-Hanan to construct another backdoor into Promis, this time exclusively for the Israelis. This gave Israel their very own backdoor into the intelligence agencies of each country that bought Promis from Israel. Israel knew that it wouldn't be able to sell Promis openly, so they had to recruit a third party seller. Eitan knew the perfect man for the job; the man was Robert Maxwell.

Maxwell sold Promis to the intelligence agencies of New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Turkey, Belgium, Poland, East Germany, Egypt, Bulgaria, Nicaragua, Colombia, Guatemala, South Africa, Zimbabwe, China , the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (Canada's FBI), and the KGB . The Israelis also sold Promis to the Eastern Bloc, Nicaragua, Colombia, Chile, Brazil, and the Rothschild controlled Credit Suisse through Maxwell's Israeli front company, Degem. The sale to Credit Suisse would give Israel the ability to monitor all transactions going through Credit Suisse, giving them an unwarranted advantage over world financial market. PROMIS was also sold to the infamously corrupt and now defunct BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International).
Maxwell's most infamous and damaging Promis affair was his business venture with China and the CSIS (China's Secret Service). The Chinese could only dream of obtaining U.S. nuclear secrets and other secret technology from the Los Alamos National Laboratories. "What about Los Alamos, one of his hosts was later reported by Goldstein to have mused; was even Los Alamos no longer impenetrable? Maxwell had laughed and said that even Los Alamos' defenses, like the walls of Jericho, would tumble under the electronic power of Enhanced Promis. Thus, Maxwell gave China access to Israel's secret backdoor. The Mossad was livid at Maxwell for revealing the backdoor, but Eitan used the development to his advantage. "He planned to penetrate deep into the very heart of America's nuclear arsenal using his doctored version of Enhanced Promis to do so. He devised a plan for Robert Maxwell to sell the software to Los Alamos. The device would contain the trap door which was so brilliantly designed it could not be detected; if deconstructed; the trap door would simply disappear."
What followed has so far remained under strict secrecy in FBI files.

"Eighteen heavily redacted FBI documents in the possession of the author and obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, provide sufficient clues to piece together a startling new slant to the botched investigation by the FBI into the later thefts from Los Alamos of its most sensitive nuclear secrets in a joint operation by Mossad and CSIS - using Israel's doctored Enhanced Promis software Robert Maxwell had sold Beijing." (Thomas 59)
Thomas explains how enraged the western intelligence community had been at this matter, "Having laid out all they knew, the two officers from London turned their attention to the matter that primarily concerned them: the damage done to joint US/UK/Canadian intelligence operations, not only as a result of China acquiring the Israeli-doctored Enhanced Promis software, but how it had been used to remove the secrets from the very heart of the West's defense against its new potential threat-China. That had been done with the complicity of Israel.
Intel receives $3.87 billion dollars in US government subsidies, the third largest amount of corporate welfare allocated to a US company. Yet Intel invests $35 billion dollars in a foreign country, Israel, with the American taxpayers picking up the tab. Intel also designs all its CPU core processors in Israel. Cyber-security researcher Christopher Domas found that Intel CPUs have patented "hidden backdoors that let you seize root by sending a command to an undocumented RISC core that manages the main CPU." (Wagenseil) These backdoors were put in place by Israeli technicians at Intel's Israeli design and fabrication centers.

Jeffrey Epstein & The Maxwells, Mossad's First Family of Spies
There has been a cover-up of a major element in the Epstein saga, namely his possible connection with Israel's intelligence agency Mossad...

By Philip Girald, reposted from Unz Review

The story of the deceased pedophile and presumed Israeli spy Jeffrey Epstein continues to enthrall because so little of the truth regarding it has been revealed in spite of claims by the government that a thorough follow-up investigation has been initiated. The case is reportedly still open and it is to be presumed that Justice Department investigators have been able to examine certain aspects of what occurred more intensively.


Connection to Israel

There has, in fact, been a cover-up of a major element in the Epstein saga, namely his possible connection with Israel's intelligence agency Mossad. Investigative reporter Whitney Webb has recently completed an exhaustive review of what we know about Epstein's partner in crime, lover and accomplice Ghislaine Maxell, to include some consideration of the possible involvement of her sisters Isabel and Christine in activity initially directed by their father, known Mossad agent Robert Maxwell.

The evidence that Epstein was directly involved in intelligence work to include bribing or blackmailing prominent individuals to act on behalf of Israel, derives both from the statement made by Acosta in 2017 that "I was told Epstein 'belonged to intelligence' and to leave it alone," a comment that the Justice Department and FBI have apparently never sought to investigate further.
That Epstein would be linked to Israel rather than to some other intelligence service is inevitably due to his relationship with Robert Maxwell
, which eventually included his daughter Ghislaine.

Robert, a Czech Jew who became a naturalized British citizen, was believed by C.I.A. and other intelligence services to be a long-time agent of Mossad.

After he died under mysterious circumstances, he was given a state funeral in Israel that was attended by every current and former head of the Jewish state's intelligence service as well as by the country's prime minister Yitzhak Shamir who eulogized: "He has done more for Israel than can today be said."
Ghislaine reportedly became the principal procurer of Epstein's young girl victims.

Also corroborating the tale of espionage even if it appears to be of no interest to the FBI and Justice Department, is a book Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales written by a former Israeli intelligence officer who actually ran the "Robert Maxwell" operation, describing inter alia how Epstein and Maxwell were blackmailing prominent politicians on behalf of Mossad.

According to Ari Ben-Menashe, the two had been working directly for the Israeli government since the 1980's and their operation, which was funded by Mossad and also by prominent American Jews, was a classic "honey-trap" which used underage girls as bait to attract well-known politicians from around the world, a list that included Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton. The politicians would be photographed and video recorded when they were in bed with the girls.

But in spite of the evidence, the role of Ghislaine, currently in custody in a maximum-security Brooklyn prison, is less well known and is possibly being deliberately concealed by the Trump Administration, which is prone to do favors for Israel.

Even less known is the possible roles of her two sisters. Webb details how Maxwell and his Israeli Mossad handlers compromised the top-secret information system then in use by the U.S. government. She observes that

... little, if any attention, has been paid to her siblings, particularly Christine and her twin sister Isabel, despite them having held senior roles at the Israeli intelligence front company that facilitated their father's greatest act of espionage on Israel's behalf, the sale of the bugged PROMIS software to the U.S. national laboratories at the heart of the country's nuclear weapons system...

Ghislaine herself also became involved in these [blackmail] affairs, as did Jeffrey Epstein following his first arrest, as they began courting the biggest names in the U.S. tech scene, from Silicon Valley's most powerful venture capital firms to its most well-known titans. This also dovetailed with Epstein's investments in Israeli intelligence-linked tech firms and his claims of having troves of blackmail on prominent tech company CEOs during this same period."

Our KSM agents have evidence that Crown Sisters Marcy and Gorelick served as handlers for convicted Soviet (?) spy Robert Hanssen who allegedly integrated Promis tracking software with Oracle Partner financial networks to move illegals through or around the Lockerbie, 9/11 and BP crime scenes.

"FTW, October 26, 2001 - 1300 PDT (UPDATED Nov. 16, 2001) - An October 16 FOX News report by correspondent Carl Cameron indicating that convicted spy, former FBI Agent Robert Hanssen, had provided a highly secret computer software program called Promis to Russian organized crime figures - who in turn reportedly sold it to Osama bin Laden - may signal a potential intelligence disaster for the United States. Admissions by the FBI and Justice in the FOX story that they have discontinued use of the software are most certainly a legal disaster for a government that has been engaged in a 16-year battle with the software's creator, William Hamilton, CEO of the Inslaw Corporation. Over those 16 years, in response to lawsuits filed by Hamilton charging that the government had stolen the software from Inslaw, the FBI, the CIA and the Department of Justice have denied, in court and under oath, ever using the software. Bin Laden's reported possession of Promis software was clearly reported in a June 15, 2001 story by Washington Times reporter Jerry Seper. That story went unnoticed by the major media. In it Seper wrote, "The software delivered to the Russian handlers and later sent to bin Laden, according to sources, is believed to be an upgraded version of a program known as Promis - developed in the 1980s by a Washington firm, Inslaw, Inc., to give attorneys the ability to keep tabs on their caseloads. It would give bin Laden the ability to monitor U.S. efforts to track him down, federal law-enforcement officials say. It also gives him access to databases on specific targets of his choosing and the ability to monitor electronic-banking transactions, easing money-laundering operations for himself or others, according to sources." .. it appears that Hanssen, who was arrested in February, in order to escape the death penalty this summer, agreed to provide the FBI and other intelligence agencies with a full accounting of his sale of Promis overseas .. On October 24, Department of Justice spokesperson Loren Pfeifle declined to answer any questions about where, when or how Promis had been used and would say only, "I can only confirm that the DoJ has discontinued use of the program." INSLAW had two limited contracts to provide Promis to Justice in 1982 and 1983. Neither application had anything to do with tracking terrorist activities. Hamilton's suits charged that Reagan Administration officials, including Edwin Meese, pirated the software, modified it for intelligence and financial uses and made millions by selling it to the governments of Israel, Canada, Great Britain, Germany and other friendly nations. After the installation of a CIA-created "back door" into the program, Israel, using its lifelong Mossad agent Robert Maxwell, reportedly sold the software to "unfriendly" nations and then secretly retrieved priceless intelligence data."

"Most Oracle professionals are surprised to learn that the name "Oracle" originates from the name of a CIA project. This article in Forbes Magazine notes that Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison worked on a CIA project with the code-name "Oracle": "He [Larry Ellison] dropped out of the University of Chicago in the 1960s, headed to Berkeley, Calif. and by the mid-1970s began working on a database project. Code name: Oracle. Client: the Central Intelligence Agency. In 1977, Ellison founded the company with Robert Miner and Edward Oates, naming it after the CIA job." There are other publications that suggest that the CIA did more than just lend the name Oracle, and they suggest that the CIA gave Ellison the Oracle software, after it was stolen from Russia: "I've chosen to publish his theory on Oracle's origin - in other words, how CIA stole the source code from the Russians, who had developed it originally!""

Professor Eric Pianka wants depoulation
Doctor Doom, Eric Pianka, Receives Standing Ovation

I watched in amazement as a few hundred members of the Texas Academy of Science rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation to a speech that enthusiastically advocated the elimination of 90 ...

    ... I watched in amazement as a few hundred members of the Texas Academy of Science rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation to a speech that enthusiastically advocated the elimination of 90 percent of Earth's population by airborne Ebola.

The speech was given by Dr. Eric R. Pianka (Fig. 1), the University of Texas evolutionary ecologist and lizard expert who the Academy named the 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist.

    Something curious occurred a minute before Pianka began speaking. An official of the Academy approached a video camera operator at the front of the auditorium and engaged him in animated conversation. The camera operator did not look pleased as he pointed the lens of the big camera to the ceiling and slowly walked away.
    This curious incident came to mind a few minutes later when Professor Pianka began his speech by explaining that the general public is not yet ready to hear what he was about to tell us.

    Because of many years of experience as a writer and editor, Pianka's strange introduction and the TV camera incident raised a red flag in my mind. Suddenly I forgot that I was a member of the Texas Academy of Science and chairman of its Environmental Science Section. Instead, I grabbed a notepad so I could take on the role of science reporter.
    One of Pianka's earliest points was a condemnation of anthropocentrism, or the idea that humankind occupies a privileged position in the Universe. He told a story about how a neighbor asked him what good the lizards are that he studies. He answered, "What good are you?"
    Pianka hammered his point home by exclaiming, "We're no better than bacteria!"
    Pianka then began laying out his concerns about how human overpopulation is ruining the Earth. He presented a doomsday scenario in which he claimed that the sharp increase in human population since the beginning of the industrial age is devastating the planet. He warned that quick steps must be taken to restore the planet before it's too late.
    Saving the Earth with Ebola
    Professor Pianka said the Earth as we know it will not survive without drastic measures. Then, and without presenting any data to justify this number, he asserted that the only feasible solution to saving the Earth is to reduce the population to 10 percent of the present number.
    He then showed solutions for reducing the world's population in the form of a slide depicting the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. War and famine would not do, he explained. Instead, disease offered the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die if the population crisis is to be solved.
    Pianka then displayed a slide showing rows of human skulls, one of which had red lights flashing from its eye sockets.
    AIDS is not an efficient killer, he explained, because it is too slow. His favorite candidate for eliminating 90 percent of the world's population is airborne Ebola ( Ebola Reston ), because it is both highly lethal and it kills in days, instead of years. However, Professor Pianka did not mention that Ebola victims die a slow and torturous death as the virus initiates a cascade of biological calamities inside the victim that eventually liquefy the internal organs.
    After praising the Ebola virus for its efficiency at killing, Pianka paused, leaned over the lectern, looked at us and carefully said, "We've got airborne 90 percent mortality in humans. Killing humans. Think about that."
    With his slide of human skulls towering on the screen behind him, Professor Pianka was deadly serious. The audience that had been applauding some of his statements now sat silent.
    After a dramatic pause, Pianka returned to politics and environmentalism. But he revisited his call for mass death when he reflected on the oil situation.
    "And the fossil fuels are running out," he said, "so I think we may have to cut back to two billion, which would be about one-third as many people." So the oil crisis alone may require eliminating two-third's of the world's population.
    How soon must the mass dying begin if Earth is to be saved? Apparently fairly soon, for Pianka suggested he might be around when the killer disease goes to work. He was born in 1939, and his lengthy obituary appears on his web site.
    When Pianka finished his remarks, the audience applauded. It wasn't merely a smattering of polite clapping that audiences diplomatically reserve for poor or boring speakers. It was a loud, vigorous and enthusiastic applause.

Promis 2.0 = Pegasus  = 9/11 Israel Comverse's intercept system
"Project Pegasus": How Israeli company NSO Group revolutionized espionage
July 19, 2021

By Martin Untersinger and Damien Leloup


The company at the heart of the "World" revelations has established itself in ten years as the leader in telephone surveillance. The human rights violation scandals that have been erupting for several years are not slowing down its rise.

Seen from the outside, the phone looks perfectly normal. Notifications light up the screen, while exchanges pile up in messaging apps. Calls are perfectly audible, Internet browsing is smooth and the camera works. There is no indication that an ultra-sophisticated spyware is surreptitiously breaking into the phone to take control of it. This stealth is the main advantage of a new kind of digital weapon, spyware called Pegasus.

The Forbidden Stories consortium of journalists and Amnesty International were able to consult more than 50,000 phone numbers selected as potential targets of this malware, on behalf of several states, and shared it with 16 media outlets, including The world. Among these targets, it is not members of terrorist groups or criminal organizations that dominate, but lawyers, journalists, activists, not to mention heads of state, diplomats and senior intelligence officials, from fifty countries.


Elite hackers

NSO is above all the story of "N", "S", and "O", for Niv Carmi, Shalev Hulio and Omri Lavie, its three co-founders. When they created the company in 2009, they were a long way from digital surveillance. Their start-up is developing a technology capable of recognizing objects in a video and offering the viewer a link to purchase them.

Pegasus Project Shows the Need for Real Device Security, Accountability and Redress for those Facing State-Sponsored Malware
By Cindy Cohn
July 20, 2021


So it is no surprise that people around the world are angry to learn that surveillance  software sold by NSO Group to governments has been found on cellphones worldwide. Thousands of NGOs, human rights and democracy activists, along with government employees and many others have been targeted and spied upon. We agree and we are thankful for the work done by Amnesty International, the countless journalists at Forbidden Stories, along with Citizen Lab, to bring this awful situation to light.

Like many others, EFF has warned for years of the danger of the misuse of powerful state-sponsored malware. Yet the stories just keep coming about malware being used to surveil and track journalists and human rights defenders who are then murdered —including the murders of Jamal Khashoggi or Cecilio Pineda-Birto. Yet we have failed to ensure real accountability for the governments and companies responsible.

Pegasus Project | India's Gandhi and Pakistan's Khan Tapped as Targets in Israeli NSO Spyware Scandal

Project Pegasus reveals massive list of potential targets of Israeli spyware, including Modi's biggest rival – Rahul Gandhi – and even an old number belonging to Pakistani leader Khan


Forbidden Stories – a Paris-based journalism nonprofit – and Amnesty International had access to a leak of more than 50,000 records of phone numbers that NSO clients selected for surveillance. The leak was shared with Haaretz and 16 other news organizations worldwide that have worked collaboratively to conduct further analysis and reporting over past months.

Forbidden Stories oversaw the investigation, called the Pegasus Project, and Amnesty International provided forensic analyses and technical support.

Project Pegasus partners The Guardian and the Washington Post, as well as the Indian newspaper The Wire, revealed Monday that Rahul Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's biggest political rival, was selected to be a target at least twice.
The database only includes potential targets – a wish list of sorts from NSO's clients – and not verified targets. But traces of NSO software were found in more than 85 percent of the analyses conducted by Amnesty International on iPhones that were used by potential victims across the world at the time of their number's selection.

V10 | Issue 138 | 7.20.21
China denies hacking. AWS closes its infrastructure to NSO. Saudi Aramco data stolen. MSP slowly recovers from ransomware.
By the CyberWire staff


Reuters reports that among the governments calling out China for cyberespionage is Norway's, which yesterday publicly attributed a March 10 attack on parliamentary email systems to Beijing.

The US has said that China's Ministry of State Security contracted at least part of its exploitation of Microsoft Exchange Servers to criminal organizations. In many cases those gangs were permitted to profit directly from their activities, a White House statement charged. China this morning answered the widespread condemnation of its operations with denial and tu quoque accusations of American misconduct, the Washington Post reports.

Amazon Web Services told Motherboard that the cloud provider has revoked NSO Group's access to its infrastructure. NSO Group has categorically denied accusations of abuse reported by the Guardian and others.

A criminal organization that styles itself ZeroX is offering a terabyte of proprietary data stolen from Saudi Aramco. BleepingComputer says the gang claims the data include personal information on 14,254 employees, business documents, and engineering information. According to Saudi Aramco, ZeroX obtained the data from third-parties via exploitation of an unspecified zero-day. The attack did not involve ransomware, and does not appear to be an extortion play.

Cloudstar, which the Record describes as a managed service provider with many customers in the "mortgage, title insurance, real estate, legal, finance, and local government sectors," continues recovery from a ransomware attack detected Friday. The incident has interfered with real estate transactions, and the Record, betting on form, thinks recovery may be a matter of weeks as opposed to days.

Suppressed 9/11: 125 Israelis Allegedly Arrested for Involvement in 9/11 Named

By VT Editors -
June 4, 2021

Credit to Wayne Madsen and his IAEA Contacts

Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert interceded twice with his good friend New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to have the 9/11 Israelis released"

(These were the 5 Israelis dressed as Arabs on the top of a building by the World Trade Centers and Building #7 taking camcorder pictures of themselves cheering and jumping up and down with joy as the planes hit the buildings. They all had hand held radios and were most likely the one's that set off the explosives "that imploded all three buildings in their own footsteps". After being held for five days in jail the five were quietly sent back to Israel.)

Giuliani and his 9/11 link with Israel and his friendship with Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert who interceded twice with his good friend New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to have the 9/11 Israelis released"-

In Wayne Madsen's article

"911-THE ISRAELI ART STUDENTS AND MOVERS STORY" Monday Aug. 8, 2005 which exposes 125 Israeli Mossad spies picked up before, on and after 9/11 and their involvement in 9/11 ...

You will notice the Zionist controlled media and U.S. government try to convince you that the Israelis were spying on Arabs, in Madsen's article... however, you will note below that spying on our military installations and government buildings has nothing to do with spying on Arabs.

Israeli Spies-The DEA compiled an extensive list of the Israeli art students as an appendix by Wayne Madsen:

The presence in the United States of a number of Israelis, most of whom had specialized military and intelligence backgrounds, in the months prior to 911 is a subject that has received inadequate attention from the major U.S. media and government investigators.

The activities of the Israelis fell into two main areas: the casing of the offices and homes of Federal law enforcement officials, U.S. military bases, and other sensitive sites by Israeli "art students" during 2000 and 2001 and the unusual activities of Israeli "movers" around sensitive areas during and after 911.


(More and more like an Israel "false flag" operation.. they are good at it-it is widely reported throughout the world...but not in the U.S. that many of the "terrorist attacks" blamed on the Moslems are actually Israeli Mossad "false flag" operations).

There are a number of possible explanations about why the Israeli art students were living so close to the hijackers, especially in Florida where much of the terrorists' flight training occurred.

Two Canadian newspapers reported that U.S. counter-intelligence officials had warned Canadian authorities that the Israeli art students were funneling proceeds from the art sales to Islamist radical groups. (40) If the Florida and Texas Israeli art rings discovered prior to 911 were providing such financial support to the hijackers, it would explain why they closely located their mail drops so close to one another.

The involvement of the Israeli cells with communications companies raised serious concerns at the DEA and Justice Department, which were both using Israeli communications intercept software in their field operations. The DEA used a T2S2 intercept system provided by Comverse and JSI, two Israeli companies. Comverse was very close to the Israeli government, which reimbursed it up to 50 percent for its research and development costs. The FBI's Communications Assistance to Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) Implementation Office in Chantilly, Virginia was extremely concerned about the threat posed by Comverse's intercept system. But the worries of the Chantilly office and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) were overridden by the FBI's engineering office in Quantico, Virginia, which was supported by such contractors as Booz Allen Hamilton.[41] The nexus of art students, intelligence surveillance, and possible involvement in Ecstasy trafficking set off alarm bells at the highest levels of the DEA about the "art students." The reason was simple. T2S2 systems were used in what the DEA, Coast Guard, Customs, and other counter narcotics agencies called High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTAs) and associated wiretap centers and surveillance teams (STs).

You Need to Know the Incredible Story of Comverse
Posted on November 25, 2018 by Curator Bot

Kobi Alexander, criminal Jewish founder of the Israeli tech firm which was given a monopoly on all US wiretaps, access to which gave Jews, and Kobi personally, almost inconceivable power. He was too greedy, though, and was convicted of stealing uncounted hundreds of millions of dollars. Despite the fact that he fled to Namibia and lived as a fugitive for a decade there, he was given a "sweetheart" deal by the US justice system, allowed to complete his incredibly light sentence in Israel. He is now free.

US leaders gave total monopoly over — and access to — all US wiretaps to criminal Jewish operation. Who knows how many "off the books" wiretaps they created for their own use?

IN 1994, during the Clinton administration, a new law called Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) was passed. The public was told that CALEA would increase public safety by providing new tools for the FBI and CIA. Ironically, they claimed that CALEA would help to prevent future terror attacks like the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In reality, it may have helped assist in the events that occurred on September 11, 2001.

The key to CALEA is centralising and expediting the business of wiretapping, making it easier for law enforcement to eavesdrop on communications. This allowed US law-enforcement officials who wished to wiretap someone to contact one central department that oversees all wiretapping. With a centralised system, just one company provides software for the entire system. "Comverse Infosys, a subsidiary of an Israeli run private telecommunications firm with offices throughout the US provides wiretapping equipment for law enforcement." (Fox News)

Every time you make a call it passes through the nation's elaborate telecommunications network run by the phone company's custom computers and software made by companies like Comverse, the parent company of Comverse Infosys. All company computers are tied into one network in order to intercept, record and store the wiretapped calls, and at the same time transmit them to investigators. The software manufacturers have continued access to the computers, so they can service them and keep them free of glitches. This very process was authorised by the 1994 Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA). I'm sure a few alarm bells are ringing.

Comverse, staying one step ahead of regulators and investigators, continually changes its corporate structure, nominal owners, headquarters, and even its name — selling parts of itself to newly-formed holding companies, merging, acquiring headquarters in Texas, New York, and points unknown — and generally acting less like a technology firm than a CIA front or a Mob money-laundering operation. It's still very much in business under new identities in 2018.

Reclusive Google co-founder Larry Page reportedly hiding out in Fiji
By Will Feuer
July 23, 2021

Larry Page, the secretive co-founder of Google, has reportedly spent much of the pandemic hiding out on tropical islands in Fiji, entering the country through a system designed to allow the ultra-wealthy to circumvent COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The reclusive billionaire has stayed mostly on the heart-shaped Tavarua island, which lies west of the main Fijian island, two people who have seen him there in the past year told Insider.

Page arrived in the country via its "Blue Lane" initiative for the super-rich.
Fiji closed its borders during the pandemic, but through the country's "Blue Lane" initiative, superyacht and private-jet owners can enter with minimal restrictions.

Page, who's the world's sixth wealthiest person with a net worth of $117 billion, entered the country through the Blue Lane system, Insider reported, citing two sources.

Former Google CEO Larry Page sells his $45 million superyacht, Senses

    The Google cofounder Larry Page purchased Senses in 2011 for $45 million.
    The sale was confirmed by a general manager overseeing refit work on the vessel in New Zealand.
    Page has since downsized to at least one other smaller yacht, which has been seen moored in Fiji.

The reclusive Google cofounder Larry Page has spent months during the pandemic enjoying Fiji's beautiful islands, but there's one thing he's not had with him: his famous superyacht, Senses.

Page has sold the boat, which came complete with helipad and private beach club, to an unknown new owner. The sale was confirmed by Phil Redpath, the general manager of Integrated Marine Group, which has been doing refit work on the vessel in New Zealand.

Another person, in Fiji, told Insider that Page no longer owned the yacht. The exact date of the sale could not be confirmed, but the person said Page had plans to sell the yacht as far back as 2019. The person asked not to be identified because they'd worked with Page's team in the past and were not authorized to speak to the media. A Google spokesperson declined to comment, and Page didn't respond to emails seeking comment.

Page purchased Senses from the New Zealand businessman Sir Arthur Douglas Myers for $45 million in 2011 — the same year his Google cofounder Sergey Brin snapped up his own $80 million superyacht, Dragonfly.

Google Billionaire Sergey Brin Opens Family Office In Singapore

The family office of Google cofounder Sergey Brin has expanded to Singapore. As first reported by Bloomberg News, documents filed to the corporate regulator on behalf of Bayshore Global Management, the company that manages Brin's wealth, show that it opened an office at the Bank of Singapore in October.

Singapore has been attracting a growing number of family offices in recent years. The Monetary Authority of Singapore said in October that the city-state was home to roughly 200 single-family offices managing assets valued at around $20 billion,

Brin, No. 10 on Forbes' Real-Time Billionaires list, has a current net worth of $87 billion. Forbes also recognized him as his nation's richest immigrant. Brin was born in Moscow to a mathematician economist and his wife and emigrated to the U.S. when he was six years old. He met cofounder Larry Page when they were both doctoral candidates in computer science at Stanford. Brin and Page were president and CEO, respectively, of Google's parent company, Alphabet, until December 2019. While no longer actively managing Alphabet, they hold controlling shares and sit on the board.

Like several other American billionaires—including Elon Musk with SpaceX and Jeff Bezos with Blue Origin—Brin has an interest in space exploration and supported the 10-year, $30 million Google Lunar XPrize competition for affordable commercial travel to space. The $20 million grand prize went uncollected in 2018 but recently XPrize has touted its teams' continued success in space travel, especially to the moon.

A call and email for comment to Bank of Singapore and Bayshore Global, respectively, were not immediately returned.

Top epidemiologist: Delta variant is 'maybe the most contagious virus' ever
By Olafimihan Oshin - 08/09/21 09:38 AM EDT

A top epidemiologist is warning that the highly transmissible delta variant of COVID-19 might be one of the most contagious diseases in recent history.

"This is maybe the most contagious virus that we've ever seen in living memory," Larry Brilliant
, who worked with the World Health Organization to help eradicate smallpox, said in an interview with CNBC on Friday.

Brilliant, who is the founder and CEO of Pandefense Advisory, said it feels like the world is still dealing with the beginning of the pandemic rather than the end due to the new variant.

Brilliant went on to say that new strains of the coronavirus will develop unless vaccinations increase globally.

"Unless we vaccinate everyone in 200-plus countries, there will still be new variants," he said.


Brilliant encouraged people who are 65 or older to get booster shots in the near future, saying that their weak immune system may cause them to be more vulnerable to the virus.

"So those people, I would say, should be given a third dose, a booster right away — as quickly as moving the vaccines to those countries that haven't had a very high chance to buy them or have access to them," Brilliant said. "I consider those two things about equal."

The debate over whether to administer booster shots is heating up as some public health experts warn countries against moving forward with plans to offer third doses at a time when millions of people have not even received their first dose.

Who Is Larry Brilliant ?

Lawrence "Larry" Brilliant (born May 5, 1944) is an American epidemiologist,[1] technologist, philanthropist, and author, who worked with the World Health Organization from 1973-1976 helping to successfully eradicate smallpox.

Brilliant, a technology patent holder, has been the CEO of public companies and venture backed start-ups.
He was the inaugural Executive Director of,[2]
the charitable arm of Google established in 2005,
and the first CEO of Skoll Global Threats Fund, established in 2009 by eBay founder Jeff Skoll to address climate change, pandemics, water security, nuclear proliferation, and conflict in the Middle East.

Brilliant currently serves as the Chairman of the Board of Ending Pandemics, and is also on the boards of the Skoll Foundation,, The Seva Foundation, and Dharma Platform.

Larry Brilliant was born in Detroit, Michigan. His father, Joe Brilliant, was a philanthropist and entrepreneur.
He is the grandson of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, whose surname was originally Brilladentov

In 1985, he co-founded, with Stewart Brand, The Well, a prototypic online community that has been the subject of multiple books and studies. Time said, "Well was a huge hit, a precursor of every online business from to eBay."


Brilliant is married to Girija (formerly Elaine) and has three children: Joe, Jon, and Iris Brilliant. Girija holds a PhD in public health administration and is an equal partner in many of her husband's enterprises. Co-founder of Seva Foundation,[17] she was instrumental in the World Health Organization's smallpox eradication program.

Brilliant was a close friend of Steve Jobs and visited him often during the last year of his life

Jeffrey Stuart Skoll, OC (born January 16, 1965)[2] is a Canadian engineer, billionaire internet entrepreneur and film producer. He was the first employee and subsequently first president of eBay, eventually using the wealth this gave him to become a philanthropist, particularly through the Skoll Foundation, and his media company Participant Media. He founded an investment firm, Capricorn Investment Group, soon after and currently serves as its chairman. Born in Montreal, Quebec, he graduated from University of Toronto in 1987 and left Canada to attend Stanford University's business school in 1993.

Shortly after graduating from business school, he began his career at eBay where he wrote the business plan that the company followed from its emergence as a start-up to a larger company.
Jeff Skoll was born to a Jewish family in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[7][8][9] His mother was a teacher[3] and his father was a chemical company owner who sold industrial chemicals.[10] The family settled in Toronto in the late seventies. When Skoll was fourteen, his father was diagnosed with cancer which prompted him to discuss with his son how much he regretted not having had the time to do everything he had planned in life. His first job was pumping gas at a York Mills gas station.

I want to provide you some very important information. I'm a committee member within the Liberal Party of Canada. I sit within several committee groups but the information I am providing is originating from the Strategic Planning committee (which is steered by the PMO).

I need to start off by saying that I'm not happy doing this but I have to. As a Canadian and more importantly as a parent who wants a better future not only for my children but for other children as well. The other reason I am doing this is because roughly 30% of the committee members are not pleased with the direction this will take Canada, but our opinions have been ignored and they plan on moving forward toward their goals. They have also made it very clear that nothing will stop the planned outcomes.

The road map and aim was set out by the PMO and is as follows:

– Phase in secondary lock down restrictions on a rolling basis, starting with major metropolitan areas first and expanding outward. Expected by November 2020.

– Rush the acquisition of (or construction of) isolation facilities across every province and territory. Expected by December 2020.

– Daily new cases of COVID-19 will surge beyond capacity of testing, including increases in COVID related deaths following the same growth curves. Expected by end of November 2020.

– Complete and total secondary lock down (much stricter than the first and second rolling phase restrictions). Expected by end of December 2020 – early January 2021

– Reform and expansion of the unemployment program to be transitioned into the universal basic income program. Expected by Q1 2021.

– Projected COVID-19 mutation and/or co-infection with secondary virus (referred to as COVID-21) leading to a third wave with much higher mortality rate and higher rate of infection. Expected by February 2021.

– Daily new cases of COVID-21 hospitalizations and COVID-19 and COVID-21 related deaths will exceed medical care facilities capacity. Expected Q1 – Q2 2021.

– Enhanced lock down restrictions (referred to as Third Lock Down) will be implemented. Full travel restrictions will be imposed (including inter-province and inter-city). Expected Q2 2021.

– Transitioning of individuals into the universal basic income program. Expected mid Q2 2021.

– Projected supply chain break downs, inventory shortages, large economic instability. Expected late Q2 2021.

– Deployment of military personnel into major metropolitan areas as well as all major roadways to establish travel checkpoints. Restrict travel and movement. Provide logistical support to the area. Expected by Q3 2021.

Along with that provided road map the Strategic Planning committee was asked to design an effective way of transitioning Canadians to meet a unprecedented economic endeavor. One that would change the face of Canada and forever alter the lives of Canadians. What we were told was that in order to offset what was essentially an economic collapse on a international scale, that the federal government was going to offer Canadians a total debt relief. This is how it works: the federal government will offer to eliminate all personal debts (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc) which all funding will be provided to Canada by the IMF under what will become known as the World Debt Reset program. In exchange for acceptance of this total debt forgiveness the individual would forfeit ownership of any and all property and assets forever. The individual would also have to agree to partake in the COVID-19 and COVID-21 vaccination schedule, which would provide the individual with unrestricted travel and unrestricted living even under a full lock down (through the use of photo identification referred to as Canada's HealthPass) .

Evidence: The Great Reset is Real, Here's Why You Won't Enjoy It
Published November 12, 2020

Here's a scary truth. The Global Reset is real and Canadians have made themselves a prime target for an easy takeover.

As of today, no-one can confirm the exact details outlined in this unverified letter which has been read more than 300,000 times on Free North News.

It's possible that this letter is a hoax never verified, but its contents are very real and the evidence is everywhere around you.

The letter's popularity suggests that there are many Canadians starting to tune into what was previously dismissed as "conspiracy theory". However, many more are clueless to this tyrannical agenda and need to wake up as the evidence continues piling up.

This is no longer a theory. The evidence is here and they are no longer hiding it.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano recently backed up the contents of the viral letter in his own writing last week.

Here's some more confirmation of the letter's contents.

Point 1 – Quarantine Camps Confirmed

No-one knows how they will be used, yet.
But the government's wording is suspicious and questions by MLA Randy Hillier went mysteriously unanswered in Ontario legislature.

New Zealand has announced their COVID camps will be mandatory and the lockdown madness in Melbourne, Australia should concern everyone. Search it if you haven't already.

Then there's Theresa Tam's past comments about forcefully removing people from their homes and locking them up during a pandemic.

Her comments should concern every Canadian.


Point 2 – The World Debt Reset Program

Trading in your mortgage, loan and credit card debts to live the rest of your life on the government's dime sounds crazy. But is it far-fetched? Not really.

The evidence of a 'Reset' is abundant online and is widely admitted and promoted in mainstream media.

Everywhere you look, the globe's elite and governments are pushing 'The Great Reset' or the need to 'Build Back Better' in a post COVID-19 world.
This is just a small sampling of evidence regarding 'The Great Reset' and Globalism. There is plenty more to this agenda including 5G, a total police state, the end of nations, DNA-altering vaccines and more which I'll discuss in future pieces. The entire agenda is a clear attack on our freedoms which Canadians have been gladly handing over to the government since the Pandemic began.

If you're wondering why President Donald Trump was under nonstop attack for the past five years, look no further than this agenda. Leftist governments, career politicians and corporations around the world have signed on to Globalism, including here in Canada. Meanwhile, Trump has denounced Globalism and warned that a socialist/communist agenda is in the works for the USA – which is exactly what the 'reset' is.

Who is Greg Epstein? Harvard's atheist chaplain isn't looking to 'a god for answers'
 By Saumya Dixit
Updated On : 18:02 PST, Aug 26, 2021

Harvard University's organization of chaplains has appointed a devout atheist and "humanist chaplain" to lead the Ivy League school founded by the Puritans to educate their ministry with the motto "Truth for Christ and the Church."

Greg was the first choice and was elected by a committee that was made up of a Lutheran, a Christian Scientist, an evangelical Christian and a Bahá'í

New York's Greg Epstein, 44, who was raised in a reformed Jewish household in Queens was selected as the president of the chaplains for the religious community at the school after serving as Harvard's "humanist chaplain" since 2005. He is a self-avowed devout atheist who wants to serve fellow nonreligious believers as well as agnostics and humanists at the Cambridge, Massachusetts, school. The school was founded by the Puritans in 1636 and named for pastor John Harvard.
Margit Hammerstrom, the Christian Science chaplain at Harvard, said that Epstein's elevation displays how people of different faiths can communicate together and serve at a progressive university.

China's Microsoft Hack May Have Had A Bigger Purpose Than Just Spying
August 26, 2021

"There is a long-term project underway," said Kiersten Todt, who was the executive director of the Obama administration's bipartisan commission on cybersecurity and now runs the Cyber Readiness Institute. "We don't know what the Chinese are building, but what we do know is that diversity of data, quality of data aggregation, accumulation of data is going to be critical to its success."


The break-in

The intruders broke into Exchange by finding a handful of coding errors that gave them entry into Exchange servers and then allowed them to take control. Vulnerable systems just needed to satisfy two conditions: They had to be connected to the internet and controlled locally by the company's IT department, something known in cyber lingo as "on premises," or "on prem." (Microsoft's Office 365 wasn't swept up in the breach because it runs in the cloud, which offers more protection.)


NPR's months-long examination of the attack — based on interviews with dozens of players from company officials to cyber forensics experts to U.S. intelligence officials — found that stealing emails and intellectual property may only have been the beginning. Officials believe that the breach was in the service of something bigger: China's artificial intelligence ambitions. The Beijing leadership aims to lead the world in a technology that allows computers to perform tasks that traditionally required human intelligence — such as finding patterns and recognizing speech or faces.

ypically, hackers find targets by scanning the internet. They look for systems that haven't been updated or patched. Investigators believe that in this case the hackers scanned the internet for companies that were running Exchange locally.

The second step of the hack was a bit more perplexing. The attackers seemed to have a weirdly specific piece of data ready to deploy: the exact email addresses of various people running Exchange servers around the world. That struck Burt as odd, because those email addresses "would be different for every single company and organization around the world," he said. "And that's not public information. So when we looked at this we thought: How is this happening?"


Microsoft had to find a way to convince some 350,000 IT administrators running Exchange locally to stop whatever they were doing and patch right away. And that was proving to be hard.


Even the FBI got involved. It secured a court order so it could legally scan the internet, find servers the Chinese had breached and then proactively remove whatever they might have left there — all without informing the victims first.


Kawaguchi said in his nearly 20 years at Microsoft, he'd never seen an attack scale up so quickly. And the breadth of it seemed out of character; nation-state hackers tend to have very targeted goals, he said — they know what they want and they gather it up quietly. In this case, the Chinese were acting like cybercriminals seemingly unconcerned about who or what might get caught up in their attack.
China, for its part, has denied any responsibility for the Microsoft Exchange attack.

"The Chinese are very Shop-Vac-oriented"

The Microsoft Exchange hack was the latest in a long list of Chinese-sponsored cyberattacks. The tally in just the four years between 2014 and 2018 is head-spinning. There was the Office of Personnel Management attack in which hackers spent some time in OPM networks and then whisked away 21.5 million records from the federal government's background investigation database.
U.S. officials said Beijing-backed hackers were behind every one of those attacks.

"If you look, just look at the Equifax breach alone, which I consider one of the greatest counterintelligence successes by the Chinese Communist Party, they have all the financial data for every single American adult," said William Evanina, former director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center. "The Chinese have more data than we have on ourselves."
But that may have been only a piece of a grander plan. Back in 2017, the Chinese Communist Party announced it would be making the development of world-class artificial intelligence a national priority — akin to America's race to the moon. And to do that China made clear it would focus on two things: developing computer scientists who can write algorithms, and amassing information that world-class algorithms need to learn from.
The reason we should care about that is because of the role AI plays in our everyday lives. It is becoming the mechanism by which insurance rates are calculated, credit is given, mortgages are approved and health care data is calculated. And Todt said Americans should take a moment to reflect on what it would mean to have a technology that will touch our lives in a myriad of ways built by someone else and, more specifically, China.

"As it builds out its AI, China can social engineer to its priorities, to its mission," she said. "And that mission may be different from ours."

US Charges 4 Chinese Nationals in Hacking Campaign
By Masood Farivar
July 19, 2021 02:49 PM
In an indictment unsealed Friday, prosecutors alleged that the three intelligence officers coordinated with staff and professors at various Chinese universities to carry out the campaign. The universities helped the Chinese spy agency to identify and recruit hackers and linguists, they said.   

To hide the Chinese government's role in the cyber campaign, the four defendants and other Chinese intelligence operatives established a front company, Hainan Xiandun Technology Development Co., Ltd, prosecutors said. The company has since been disbanded. 

In addition to organizations in the United States, the hacking campaign targeted victims in Austria, Cambodia, Canada, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Norway, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, prosecutors said.

"The breadth and duration of China's hacking campaigns, including these efforts targeting a dozen countries across sectors ranging from health care and biomedical research to aviation and defense, remind us that no country or industry is safe," Monaco said. "Today's international condemnation shows that the world wants fair rules, where countries invest in innovation, not theft." 
The U.S. views China as "a prolific and effective cyber-espionage threat" and says it "possesses substantial cyber-attack capabilities," according to the U.S. intelligence community's latest threat assessment released in April.

Jeff Bezos: Amazon founder 'funds' new age-reversal company opening in UK

Altos Labs has raised at least $270m (£231m) to look into whether biological reprogramming technology could revitalise animal bodies, ultimately prolonging human life.

A new start-up that aims to reverse aging is planning to open a lab in the UK, reportedly with funding from Jeff Bezos.

Altos Labs has raised at least $270m (£231m) to develop biological reprogramming technology, a way to rejuvenate cells that some scientists think could be extended to revitalise entire animal bodies, ultimately prolonging human life.

The company, which was incorporated in the US and in the UK earlier this year, is reported to have billionaires Jeff Bezos and Yuri Milner among its investors, according to MIT Technology Review

'Immortal' Cells: Is It Biologically Possible For Humans To Live Forever? (VIDEO)
By Cara Santa Maria

Given the chance, would you want to live forever? In the Epic of Gilgamesh, written over 4,000 years ago, a Sumerian king seeks eternal life. And 500 years ago, Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon came to the Americas searching for the fountain of youth. Every generation, a new ploy for outsmarting the reaper emerges—always futile, always in vain. But is the key to immortality within reach? Some people think that technology will help us cure diseases, build new organs, and essentially reprogram our bodies' faulty software. Futurist Ray Kurzweil calculates that 20 years is all it'll take for this exponential boom in computing power to help us live forever. But other scientists are more skeptical. They say that to understand immortality, we must understand our own DNA.

Watch the video above and click the link below to learn more about our quest for immortality and how, in some ways, we have already achieved it. Sound off in the comments section below, and as always, talk nerdy to me!

Hi everyone. Cara Santa Maria here. Given the chance, would you want to live forever? In the Epic of Gilgamesh, written over 4,000 years ago, a Sumerian king seeks eternal life.

Larry Ellison, one of the world's richest people, asks for a second chance at charity

$60 billion hangs in the balance.
By Theodore Schleifer@teddyschleifer Aug 24, 2020, 1:30pm EDT


he founder of Oracle says he wants to be judged on his results at the Larry Ellison Foundation. But he must also reckon with the fact that for all his success in the world of making money, he has not succeeded in the world of giving it away. He has basked in positive publicity for promises to donate millions and then retracted offers with little explanation; sunk hundreds of millions into moonshot projects like life-extension research before suddenly pulling funding; and made public promises about charitable giving that he appears nowhere close to fulfilling. Nothing has quite worked out.

Migration Replacement

United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.

Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union).

Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.



Past trends 

At the middle of the twentieth century, the average fertility level stood at 2.6 children per woman in Europe  and  2.4  children  for  the  countries  of  the  European  Union  (see  table  5).  For  the  countries  in  this study the range was from 2.2 children per woman in Germany and the United Kingdom to 2.7 children in  France  and  in  Japan.

Fertility  was  markedly  higher  in  the  United  States  of  America,  3.4  children,  and  even  higher  in  the  Republic  of  Korea,  5.4  children  per  woman. 

By  1965-1970,  fertility  had  increased  a  little on average for the countries of the European Union, to 2.5 children per woman, but had fallen below  replacement level in Japan and the Russian Federation at 2.0 children.  Fertility had also decreased to 2.5
children  in  the  United  States
and  more  slowly  in  the  Republic  of Korea,  to  4.7  children.  By  1995-2000,  fertility  was  below  replacement  level  in  all  countries  and  regions  of  the  present  study,  with  a  relatively  wide range of levels, from a high of 2.0 children in the United States to 1.2 children in Italy. The average  for Europe and for the European Union was 1.4 children per woman.

As a consequence of this low, and decreasing, fertility history, coupled with a continuous decline in mortality, all populations aged rapidly.  In 1950, the potential support ratio, which is defined as the ratio of the population aged 15-64 years to the population aged 65 years or older, ranged between 6 and 8 for the United States, the European Union countries, and Europe, and was 10 in the Russian Federation, 12 in Japan and 18 in the Republic of Korea. By 2000, the PSR had decreased by about 40 per cent, to 4 in the countries of the European Union and in Japan, 5 in the United States, the Russian Federation and Europe, and 11 in the Republic of Korea.

Fed Printing money is a hidden tax on the ordinary ... wealth builder to the insiders ...
The Fed Is Bailing Out The Wealthy As Everyone Else Pays The Price
Friday, Sep 17, 2021 - 06:30 AM

Authored by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,

The Federal reserve says that inequality is a problem. At the same, the Fed also pretends to have nothing to do with it.

Last September, for instance, Jerome Powell bemoaned the "relative stagnation of income" for people with lower incomes in the United States, but then claimed the Fed "doesn't have the tools" to address this issue. Instead, Powell, being the chairman of this ostensibly "independent" and "nonpolitical" central bank, called for the federal government to engage in fiscal policy efforts at income redistribution.

Powell, of course, is wrong, and he probably knows he's wrong. In any case, if the Fed were actually concerned about wealth and income inequality, the Fed would stop doing what it has done over the past decade. It would end its ultralow interest rate policy and quantitative easing.


In her new book, Engine of Inequality: The Fed and the Future of Wealth in America, Karen Petrou looks in detail at how Fed policy over the past decade—especially quantitative easing (QE) and ultralow interest rates—have benefited the wealthy while leaving most ordinary people behind.

Petrou is one of the more interesting and informative analysts examining the financial services sector. As the head of Federal Financial Analytics Inc., she has provided research on the banking sector for more than thirty years, but in recent years she's become more focused on exposing and examining the unhealthy and destructive effects of Fed policy.

Petrou takes a different approach from the Austrians. She appears to have arrived at her conclusions from observing the trends and outcomes produced by Fed policy and then working backward into a theoretical framework. The data seems to have prompted her to ask why things have gone so badly after more than a decade of "unconventional" Fed policy. When it comes to identifying the problem, she's come to the right conclusions.

Powell orders ethics review after Fed presidents disclosed multimillion-dollar investments
Published Thu, Sep 16 2021

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell directed staff to review the central bank's ethics rules after several Fed presidents disclosed large investments and stock trades.
    News of Powell's inquiry broke after Sen. Elizabeth Warren sent 12 letters to the Fed's regional bank presidents demanding stricter ethics around stock buying.
    Documents revealed that Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan traded Apple, Amazon and Delta Air Lines stock in 2020.
The Massachusetts Democrat called on each Fed president to institute a ban on the ownership and trading of individual stocks by senior officials at each regional office.

Last week, financial disclosures filed by the Fed's 12 regional presidents revealed some had actively traded in 2020, while others held million-dollar financial positions without making changes to their portfolios.

A Fed spokesman told CNBC that Powell last week ordered a "fresh and comprehensive look at the ethics rules around permissible financial holdings and activities by senior Fed officials."

Documents released last week revealed that Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan made multiple trades worth $1 million or more last year in individual stocks including Apple, Amazon and Delta Air Lines.
Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren held stakes in four real estate investment trusts and several purchases and sales of similar property-owning vehicles, according to filings. He also held stock in Pfizer, Chevron and AT&T. His investments were in the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Other Fed presidents, such as Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin, disclosed little to no trading activity but several financial holdings in excess of $1 million.

How it started with the 1907 "Finacial Panic" 

"We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent." James (son of Paul)  Warburg quotes ( Banker, Shareholder, Founder, US Federal Reserve, Founder Council on Foreign Relations  1896-1969 ) while speaking before the United States Senate,  February 17, 1950

Paul M. Warburg was sworn in as a member of the first Federal Reserve Board on August 10, 1914. He was appointed vice chairman (called "vice governor" before 1935) on August 10, 1916. He resigned from the Board on August 9, 1918.

Warburg was born in Hamburg, Germany, in 1868. He graduated from high school in Hamburg in 1886 and began working for an exporting firm there. He then moved on to positions at shipping and banking companies in London and Paris. He returned to Hamburg in 1895 and became a partner in the banking firm M.M. Warburg and Company, founded by his great-grandfather.

Warburg was a partner in the family firm until 1907. However, in 1902, he moved to New York City and joined his father-in-law's company as a partner overseeing international loans to several governments. In 1911, he became a naturalized US citizen.

Warburg was considered one of the top authorities on central banking both in Europe and the United States and was active in the monetary reform movement taking place in the United States in the early 1900s. He gave speeches, published several articles advocating the establishment of a US central bank, and was an unofficial advisor to the National Monetary Commission, which was established following the Panic of 1907 to study banking system reform. In 1910, Warburg was one of six men, including Sen. Nelson Aldrich, to participate in a secret meeting on Jekyll Island, Georgia, that resulted in a plan for a National Reserve Association. Although the "Aldrich plan" was rejected by Congress, it laid the foundation for the 1913 Federal Reserve Act, which created the Federal Reserve System. President Woodrow Wilson appointed Warburg to the new entity's first Board in 1914. 

Although Warburg left the Federal Reserve Board in 1918, he continued to serve the Federal Reserve as a member of the Federal Advisory Council (1921–26). He resumed his activities in business and philanthropic circles as well. For example, he founded and was the first chairman of the Executive Committee of the American Acceptance Council in 1919. In 1921, he organized the International Acceptance Bank to promote US government financing of reconstruction in Europe following the war.

Warburg was also a director of the Council on Foreign Relations (1921–32), a trustee of the Institute of Economics (1922–27), and a trustee of the Brookings Institution after it merged with the Institute of Economics in 1927. He also helped establish the Carl Schurz Memorial Foundation in 1930. He served at various times as a director of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Union Pacific Railroad, and Western Union Telegraph Company. Warburg was also a director of the Julliard School of Music and a trustee of Tuskegee College.

Warburg continued to take an active interest in the nation's monetary affairs and banking system. In March 1929, he warned that the wild stock speculation resulting from stock price increases and improper bank lending practices would have disastrous results if left unchecked. On October 29 of that year, the stock market crashed.
Probably the most superficially damning collection of documents on the Jewish conspiracy is in the State Department Decimal File (861.00/5339). The central document is one entitled "Bolshevism and Judaism," dated November 13, 1918. The text is in the form of a report, which states that the revolution in Russia was engineered "in February 1916" and "it was found that the following persons and firms were engaged in this destructive work":

(1) Jacob Schiff Jew
(2) Kuhn, Loeb & Company Jewish Firm


Jacob Schiff Jew
Felix Warburg Jew
Otto H. Kahn Jew
Mortimer L. Schiff Jew
Jerome J. Hanauer Jew

(3) Guggenheim Jew
(4) Max Breitung Jew
(5) Isaac Seligman Jew

The report goes on to assert that there can be no doubt that the Russian Revolution was started and engineered by this group and that in April 1917

    Jacob Schiff in fact made a public announcement and it was due to his financial influence that the Russian revolution was successfully accomplished and in the Spring 1917 Jacob Schitf started to finance Trotsky, a Jew, for the purpose of accomplishing a social revolution in Russia.

The report contains other miscellaneous information about Max Warburg's financing of Trotsky, the role of the Rheinish-Westphalian syndicate and Olof Aschberg of the Nya Banken (Stockholm) together with Jivotovsky. The anonymous author (actually employed by the U.S. War Trade Board)2 states that the links between these organizations and their financing of the Bolshevik Revolution show how "the link between Jewish multi-millionaires and Jewish proletarians was forged." The report goes on to list a large number of Bolsheviks who were also Jews and then describes the actions of Paul Warburg, Judus Magnes, Kuhn, Loeb & Company, and Speyer & Company.

The United States has had three coups if you count the first one as being Jekyll Island in November of 1910. Those first coup plotters met at Jekyll Island and secretly wrote the law that became the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. All of the bankers who met in secret were Rothschild agents. This included Paul Warburg of the Rothschild dominated Kuhn Loeb bank. Nelson Aldrich who was a Senator married into the Rockefeller family.

The Rockefellers were created by the Rothschilds as were J P Morgan, the Harrimans and the Bush family.

Senator Aldrich was head of the National Monetary Commission created by President Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt had become President after the Jews had successfully assassinated President McKinley.

They previously had assassinated President Lincoln. John Wilkes Booth was Jewish. But I prefer not to count these earlier assassinations as coups. The remaining members of the Jekyll Island Six were Treasury Department employees. who did what they were told to do.
None Dare Call it Conspiracy
The plan of the international bankers to create a world socialist super-state
-- by: Gary Allen and Larry Abraham, 1971, source: Reactor Core

The year is 1917. The Allies are fighting the Central Powers. The Allies include Russia, the British Commonwealth, France and by April 1917, the United States. in March of 1917, purposeful planners set in motion the forces to compel Czar Nicholas II to abdicate. He did so under pressure from the Allies after severe riots in the Czarist capitol of Petrograd, riots that were caused by the breakdowns in the transportation system which cut the city off from food supplies and led to the closing of factories.

But where were Lenin and Trotsky when all this was taking place? Lenin was in Switzerland and had been in Western Europe since 1905 when he was exiled for trying to topple the Czar in the abortive Communist revolution of that year. Trotsky also was in exile, a reporter for a Communist newspaper on the lower east side of New York City. The Bolsheviks were not a visible political force at the time the Czar abdicated. And they came to power not because the downtrodden masses of Russia called them back, but because very powerful men in Europe and the United States sent them in.

Lenin was sent across Europe-at-war on the famous "sealed train." With him, Lenin took some $5 to $6 million in gold. The whole thing was arranged by the German high command and Max Warburg, through another very wealthy and lifelong socialist by the name of Alexander Helphand alias "Parvus."

When Trotsky left New York aboard the S.S. Christiania, on March 27, 1917, with his entourage of 275 revolutionaries, the first port of call was Halifax, Nova Scotia. There the Canadians grabbed Trotsky and his money and impounded them both. This was a very logical thing for the Canadian government to do for Trotsky had said many times that if he were successful in coming to power in Russia he would immediately stop what he called the "imperialist war" and sue for a separate peace with Germany. This would free millions of German troops for transfer from the Eastern front to the Western front where they could kill Canadians. So Trotsky cooled his heels in a Canadian prison-for five days.

Then all of a sudden the British (through future Kuhn, Loeb partner Sir William Wiseman) and the United States (through none other than the ubiquitous "Colonel" House) pressured the Canadian government. And, despite the fact we were now in the war, said, in so many words, "Let Trotsky go." Thus, with an American passport, Trotsky went back to meet Lenin. They joined up, and, by November, through bribery, cunning, brutality and deception, they were able (not to bring the masses rallying to their cause but) to hire enough thugs and make enough deals to impose out of the gun barrel what Lenin called "all power to the Soviets." The Communists came to power by seizing a mere handful of key cities. In fact, practically the whole Bolshevik Revolution took place in one city -- Petrograd. It was as if the whole United States became Communist because a Communist-led mob seized Washington, D.C. It was years before the Soviets solidified power throughout Russia.

The Germans, on the face of it, had a plausible excuse for financing Lenin and Trotsky. The two Germans most responsible for the financing of Lenin were Max Warburg and a displaced Russian named Alexander Helphand. They could claim that they were serving their country's cause by helping and financing Lenin. However, these two German "patriots" neglected to mention to the Kaiser their plan to foment a Communist revolution in Russia.

The picture takes on another dimension when you consider that the brother of Max Warburg was Paul Warburg, prime mover in establishing the Federal Reserve System and who from his position on the Federal Reserve Board of Directors, played a key role in financing the American war effort. (When news leaked out in American papers about brother Max running the German finances, Paul resigned from his Federal Reserve post without a whimper.) From here on the plot sickens.

For the father-in-law of Max Warburg's brother, Felix, was Jacob Schiff, senior partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Co. (Paul and Felix Warburg, you will recall, were also partners in Kuhn, Loeb & Co. while Max ran the Rothschild-allied family bank of Frankfurt.) Jacob Schiff also helped finance Leon Trotsky. According to the New York Journal-American of February 3, 1949:

"Today it is estimated by Jacob's grandson, John Schiff, that the old man sank about 20,000,000 dollars for the final triumph of Bolshevism in Russia." (See Chart 6.)

De Goulevitch goes on to reveal: "In private interviews I have been told that over 21 million roubles were spent by Lord Milner in financing the Russian Revolution."

It should be noted parenthetically that Lord Milner, Paul, Felix and Max Warburg represented "their" respective countries at the Paris Peace Conference at the conclusion of World War I.

Scientists studying whether it's possible to grow, eat mRNA vaccines

TORONTO -- Given the option, would you rather get vaccinated by taking a shot in the arm or eating a bowl of vegetables?

Scientists at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) are currently studying whether they can turn edible plants, such as lettuce and spinach, into mRNA vaccines people can grow themselves.

The research project has three goals: to show that DNA containing mRNA vaccines can be successfully integrated into plant cells; to demonstrate that plants can replicate enough mRNA to rival current injection methods; and to determine the correct dosage.

"Ideally, a single plant would produce enough mRNA to vaccinate a single person," Juan Pablo Giraldo, lead researcher and associate professor in UCR's Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, said in a news release.

"We are testing this approach with spinach and lettuce and have long-term goals of people growing it in their own gardens," he added. "Farmers could also eventually grow entire fields of it."

The key to introducing mRNA vaccines into plants are chloroplasts, according to Giraldo, which are the small organs in plant cells that are responsible for photosynthesis.

"They're tiny, solar-powered factories that produce sugar and other molecules which allow the plant to grow," Giraldo said. "They're also an untapped source for making desirable molecules."

Previous lab work by Giraldo has shown that chloroplasts can express genes that aren't naturally part of the plant. This was achieved by sending foreign genetic material inside a protective casing into plant cells.

Similar research into an edible COVID-19 vaccine is also being conducted close to home.

A team of scientists led by Allyson MacLean, an assistant professor in the University of Ottawa's Department of Biology, have been working on an alternative means of immunization against the virus for more than a year now.

Their method involves the expression of viral antigens in edible plants, including lettuce and spinach, which people would then eat. Testing of the vaccine has already begun as part of a partnership with The Ottawa Hospital.

The mRNA technology used in some conventional COVID-19 vaccines works by using mRNA to provide human cells with genetic instructions for making antibodies against specific diseases. One of the challenges of mRNA vaccines, however, is they must be kept at cold temperatures to maintain stability during transport and storage.

If the UCR research project is successful, not only could it make edible mRNA vaccines possible, but also create an mRNA vaccine able to be stored at room temperature.

"I'm very excited about all of this research," Giraldo said. "I think it could have a huge impact on peoples' lives."

The research project is being backed by a US$500,000 grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation.

"Lol at no jabcels. The new world order is adamant on killing 95% of the entire population. Soon every vegetables / food in the grocery store is mRNA based.

No one is going to convince me that all this is being done, solely to ''reduce covid symptoms'' since the vax doesn't even make you immune and since animals get it, it will always mutate and come back like the flu."

Common Purpose is a political charity using Behavioural Modification

Common Purpose (CP) is a Charity, based in Great Britain, which creates 'Future Leaders' of society.
CP selects individuals and 'trains' them to learn how society works, who 'pulls the levers of power' and how CP 'graduates' can use this knowledge to lead 'Outside Authority'.

Children, teenagers and adults have their prejudices removed. Graduates are 'empowered' to become 'Leaders' and work in 'partnership' with other CP graduates. CP claims to have trained some 30,000 adult graduates in UK and changed the lives of some 80,000 people, including schoolchildren and young people.

But evidence shows that Common Purpose is rather more than a Charity 'empowering' people and communities'. In fact, CP is an elitest pro-EU political organisation helping to replace democracy in UK, and worldwide, with CP chosen 'elite' leaders. In truth, their hidden networks and political objectives are undermining and destroying our democratic society and are threatening 'free will' in adults, teenagers and children. Their work is funded by public money and big business, including international banks.

It is important for researchers on this site to realise that the majority of Common Purpose 'graduates' are victims, who have little if any understanding of the wider role of Common Purpose within UK society, nor of its connections to higher government and the European Union. Drawn into CP training by a flattering invitation, or selected by their company or organisation, this recruitment is normally carried out by a previously trained CP person - now recruiting for the cause. Candidates are screened and selected (or rejected) by CP Advisory Board members in their area.

Both candidates and 'trained graduates' will have no real understanding of Common Purpose's wider role to help achieve a political and social paradigm shift in the UK. The real objective, would appear to be to replace our traditional UK democracy with the new regime of the EU superstate.

By blurring the boundaries between people, professions, public and private sectors, responsibility and accountability, CP encourages graduates to believe that as new selected leaders, CP graduates can work together, outside of the established political and social structures, to achieve this paradigm shift or CHANGE. The so called "Leading Outside Authority". In doing so, the allegiance of the individual becomes 're-framed' on CP colleagues and their NETWORK.

Using behavioural and experiential learning techniques, the views of graduates can be remoulded to conform to the new Common Purpose. Most will not be aware this has happened, but we are given immediate clues in descriptions by graduates that Common Purpose training is 'life changing', 'disturbing, or 'unsettling'. Trained and operating under the Chatham House rules of secrecy (details of discussion, those present and location are not disclosed), CP graduates come to operate in 'their world' of Common Purpose. Please go to Document Library .......Category.........Mind Control Background on this site for historical information regarding manipulation of people's free will and behaviour.

| - - - -

Common Purpose, we have distilled our 30 years of our unique leadership development experience into these two powerful online programmes for senior and emerging leaders. We believe that now, more than ever, we need to support and develop leaders who can cross boundaries, solve complex problems and produce change.

How Common Purpose has corrupted the British police

On the surface, Common Purpose is an educational charity that does leadership and
networking development training. In reality, Common Purpose is a corrupt, subversive
and sinister organisation which seeks to destroy the national identity of Britain, to destroy
democracy in Britain and introduce the EU Police State into Britain.

Most people have never heard of Common Purpose which is strange because Common
Purpose has corruptly abused millions of pounds of taxpayers' money.

Common Purpose is a change agent being used by Fabian New Labour to implement its
hidden Communitarian agenda. It is a 'Trojan Horse' fifth column operation and part of
the mechanism being used by Brussels to undermine and soften up British society to pave
the way for the take-over of Britain by the European Union (EUSSR).

One way that Common Purpose are doing this is by infiltrating their 'graduates' into
positions of power in the media, national and local government, the police and the
judiciary. Common Purpose needs these 'graduates' to run the bureaucracy of the New
Dictatorship of what they call the 'post-democratic' society. All Common Purpose
'graduates' have been corrupted and are totally untrustworthy.

British governments should govern – not dictate to and betray their own citizens.

Jonathan Pollard: Young Jews should consider spying for Israel
In bombshell interview, he said 'the bottom line on this charge of dual loyalty is, I'm sorry, we're Jews, and if we're Jews, we will always have dual loyalty'
By JTA March 26, 2021, 9:33 am

Jonathan Pollard being greeted by Benjamin Netanyahu on the tarmac at Ben Gurion

Jonathan Pollard, the convicted spy for Israel whose story haunted the American Jewish community's relations with the U.S. government for decades, is unrepentant.
Pollard's arrest and eventual conviction complicated ties between U.S. Jews and sectors of the government. Jews seeking entry into or advancement in the national security apparatus were often rebuffed, with Pollard cited as the reason. The Pollard narrative in part drove the espionage charges brought in 2004 against two top staffers for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee — a case that fell apart but drastically changed how AIPAC operated.

Pollard suggested that Jews were deluding themselves if they thought of America as a home and suggested he would counsel a young U.S. Jew working in the American security apparatus to spy for Israel.
Pollard was paroled from his life sentence in 2015. The terms of his parole were not renewed last year and he flew to Israel, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu greeted him at the airport. Sheldon Adelson, the late owner of Israel Hayom, provided a private plane for Pollard to fly to Israel.

'The American friends': New court files expose Sheldon Adelson's security team in US spy operation against Julian Assange
Max Blumenthal·May 14, 2020

The Grayzone reveals new details on the critical role Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas Sands played in an apparent CIA spying operation targeting Julian Assange, and exposes the Sands security staff who helped coordinate the malicious campaign.


The Spanish judge presiding over the trial of a security firm owner apparently hired to spy on jailed WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange has sent a request to the U.S.  Department of Justice for an interview with Zohar Lahav, the Israeli-American vice president for executive protection at Las Vegas Sands.

Sands is owned by the ultra-Zionist casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson, one of the single largest donors to Donald Trump's presidential campaigns and the Republican Party.

According to court documents reviewed by The Grayzone, the judge seeks to probe Lahav's relationship with disgraced UC Global CEO David Morales, who was indicted for an array of crimes after allegedly presiding over a spying operation targeting Assange while he was confined within Ecuador's embassy in London.

Kidnapping, assassination and a London shoot-out: Inside the CIA's secret war plans against WikiLeaks
Zach Dorfman, Sean D. Naylor and Michael Isikoff
Sun, 26 September 2021, 2:00 am·39-min read

Some senior officials inside the CIA and the Trump administration even discussed killing Assange, going so far as to request "sketches" or "options" for how to assassinate him. Discussions over kidnapping or killing Assange occurred "at the highest levels" of the Trump administration, said a former senior counterintelligence official. "There seemed to be no boundaries."

The conversations were part of an unprecedented CIA campaign directed against WikiLeaks and its founder. The agency's multipronged plans also included extensive spying on WikiLeaks associates, sowing discord among the group's members, and stealing their electronic devices.

Assange's anti-Semitism revisited

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has spoken about Jews several times, with plain and heartfelt hostility. What most agitates him about Jews is their notorious practice of smearing critics as "anti-Semites" and their penetration of the establishment.

(April 13, 2019 / JNS) When the fugitive WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange first holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London seven years ago, "Brexit" was an unknown word, Donald Trump was still hosting "The Apprentice," and the Iran nuclear deal was just a twinkle in the eye of U.S. President Barack Obama. So when, last week, British police officers carried a horizontal Assange out of the embassy's doors and into a world greatly changed since the last time he breathed in the fresh morning air, one couldn't help reflecting that those changes would not quite have been the same without his contribution.


Assange himself has spoken about Jews several times, with plain and heartfelt hostility. The first occasion was in 2011, when he phoned Ian Hislop, the editor of the British satirical magazine Private Eye, to complain about a piece that highlighted Assange's friendship with a notorious character named Israel Shamir. (A Russian Jew who converted to Orthodox Christianity, Shamir has been writing unhinged missives denouncing Judaism and Zionism for the last 20 years, mostly for far-right websites.) By running the item, Assange said, Hislop had joined an international conspiracy against WikiLeaks led by journalists, all of whom, Assange emphasized, "are Jewish." When Hislop challenged this invocation of a classic anti-Semitic trope, Assange suddenly replied, "Forget about the Jewish thing."

It would seem, then, that what most agitates Assange about Jews is their clannishness and tribalism, their habit of sticking together politically, their notorious practice of smearing critics as "anti-Semites" and their penetration of the establishment

Monopoly: An overview of the Great Reset – Follow the Money
April 15, 2021

the stock of the world's largest corporations are owned by the same institutional investors. They all own each other. This means that "competing" brands, like Coke and Pepsi aren't really competitors, at all, since their stock is owned by exactly the same investment companies, investment funds, insurance companies, banks and in some cases, governments. This is the case, across all industries. As she says:

"The smaller investors are owned by larger investors. Those are owned by even bigger investors. The visible top of this pyramid shows only two companies whose names we have often seen...They are Vanguard and BlackRock. The power of these two companies is beyond your imagination. Not only do they own a large part of the stocks of nearly all big companies but also the stocks of the investors in those companies. This gives them a complete monopoly.


In other words, these two investment companies, Vanguard and BlackRock hold a monopoly in all industries in the world and they, in turn are owned by the richest families in the world, some of whom are royalty and who have been very rich since before the Industrial Revolution. Why doesn't everybody know this? Why aren't there movies and documentaries about this? Why isn't it in the news? Because 90% of the international media is owned by nine media conglomerates.

Covid Lie asks, "Who sponsors the organization and press agencies that produce our news? With Project Syndicate, we see the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Open Society Foundation and the European Journalism Centre. The organizations that bring the news get paid by non-profit organizations, of the same elite that also owns the entire media but also a part of taxpayers money is used to pay them."

Or, as George Carlin said, "It's a small club and you ain't in it."

So when Lynn Forester de Rothschild wants the United States to be a one-party country (like China) and doesn't want voter ID laws passed in the US, so that more election fraud can be perpetrated to achieve that end,what does she do?

She holds a conference call with the world's top 100 CEOs and tells them to publicly decry as "Jim Crow" Georgia's passing of an anti-corruption law and she orders her dutiful CEOs to boycott the State of Georgia, like we saw with Coca-Cola and Major League Baseball and even Hollywood star, Will Smith. In this conference call, we see shades of the Great Reset, Agenda 2030, the New World Order.

The UN wants to make sure, as does Schwab that in 2030, poverty, hunger, pollution and disease no longer plague the Earth. To achieve this, the UN wants taxes from Western countries to be split by the mega corporations of the elite to create a brand new society. For this project, the UN says we need a world government – namely the UN, itself.

And it is clear that the "pandemic" was orchestrated in order to bring this about. This video does an incredible job of explaining how it is all being done.

"Keyword Warrants" - Feds Secretly Ordered Google To Identify Anyone Searching Certain Information
Thursday, Oct 07, 2021 - 05:24 AM

An accidentally unsealed court document reveals that the federal government secretly ordered Google to provide data on people searching specific search words or phrases, otherwise known as "keyword warrants," according to Forbes.

According to the report, the Justice Department inadvertently unsealed the documents in September (which were promptly re-sealed), which were reviewed by Forbes. In several instances, law enforcement investigators asked Google to identify anyone searching for specific keywords.

The first case was in 2019 when federal investigators were on the hunt for men they believed sex-trafficked a minor. According to a search warrant, the minor went missing but reappeared a year later and claimed to have been kidnapped and sexually assaulted. Investigators asked Google if anyone had searched the minor's name. The tech giant responded and provided law enforcement agents with Google accounts and IP addresses of those who made the searches.

There have been other rare examples of so-called keyword warrants, such as in 2020 when police asked Google if anyone searched for the address of an arson victim in the government's racketeering case against singer R Kelly. Then in 2017, a Minnesota judge requested Google to provide information on anyone who searched for a  fraud victim's name. 


Not widely discussed at the time, the orders appear even broader than the one above, asking for IP addresses and Google account information of individuals who searched for various addresses and some terms associated with bomb making, such as "low explosives" and "pipe bomb." Similar orders were served on Microsoft and Yahoo for their respective search engines.

As for what data the tech companies gave to investigators, that information remains under seal.

You can read the orders on Google here, here and here. The Microsoft and Yahoo orders can be found here and here.

Every year, Google responds to thousands of warrant orders, but the latest keyword warrant is an entirely new strategy by government investigators and is becoming increasingly controversial.
Court records reviewed by Forbes show Google has given away data on people who searched for specific keywords, which is more evidence the US is transforming into an authoritarian state of monitoring and surveillance of online activities just like China's.  (

Deleted UK Government Report Celebrates How Public Loves To "Conform"

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

A deleted government report exploring how to make the public alter its behavior to accept the new 'green economy' reveals how COVID-19 restrictions have created a population with a "deep set reverence" for authority and a "powerful tendency to conform."

The report was inadvertently published by the British government before being hastily pulled down, but numerous journalists were able to retrieve its contents.

The document explored how to weaponize behavioral psychology to 'nudge' the public into supporting measures and adopting behavior without them explicitly knowing they're being manipulated.

The investigation found that the same techniques the government used to force people into accepting lockdown could be used to make them change their lifestyles in the name of preventing climate change.

Under the heading "principles for successful behaviour," the paper noted;

    "Government statements, actions and laws powerfully shape perceptions of normative and acceptable behaviour. For instance, even with public criticism being high, many still perceived government approval as the yardstick for safe behaviour during COVID-19 'we're allowed to do this now [so must be safe]...'. This reveals, for many, a deep set reverence for legitimate government authority, regardless of one's personal political views."
While PR stunts such as having officials vaccinated live on television worked to convince people of the narrative, elite hypocrisy (public officials violating lockdown rules) was found to cause significant damage to public trust.

    "Perceived hypocrisy can do a lot to undermine efforts to build public engagement and support. This was observed during the COVID-19 pandemic when prominent authority figures broke guidelines, leading to measurable reductions in public compliance as well as shifting attitudes."

"Green politics has similar deep-seated reputational issues with elite hypocrisy," notes Breitbart.

    "A common feature of climate change summits has been high-profile attendees arriving by private or government jet, a disconnect between word and deed that seems unlikely to vanish in the near term."

The paper concluded that people can be rather easily "nudged" into changing their behavior in response to government announcements and "have a powerful tendency to conform."

The investigation also found that even if enforced changes to lifestyle are not wanted by the public, most tend to fall in line with the new status quo rather quickly anyway.

The report was prepared by the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), a quasi-government body that was part of the effort to use "totalitarian" and "unethical" methods of instilling fear into the population as a means of scaring them into complying with lockdown rules.

A related group, the Scientific Pandemic Insights Group on Behaviours team, warned at the start of the first lockdown that a "substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened [by Covid-19]."

    "The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging," the group added, leading to numerous lurid propaganda campaigns that exaggerated the threat of COVID to bully the public into total submission.

In summary, the public is largely unthinking, compliant and docile and can be made to go along with just about anything so long as they're bombarded with the right propaganda.

'Identifiable Harm': Biden Kills JFK File Release, Issues Baffling Statement

By C. Douglas Golden October 24, 2021 at 11:18am

Thanks to President Joe Biden, JFK assassination records set to be released this year will be going back and to the archives. Back and to the archives.

In a statement on Friday, the White House announced that long-classified documents regarding the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy "shall be withheld from full public disclosure" until Dec. 15, 2022 — over 59 years after Kennedy was killed in Dallas, Texas.

According to CBS News, despite federal law which mandates all records on the event "should be eventually disclosed to enable the public to become fully informed about the history surrounding the assassination," Biden said the federal archivist needs one more year to make appropriate redactions to minimize "identifiable harm."

While former President Donald Trump released several thousand pages of files under the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, he held back others, citing national security concerns.

According to a Friday statement from Biden, the federal government has been reviewing these redactions since 2018. They apparently need more time, because this is the federal government under the Biden administration and did we, like, expect them to do their job in an expedient manner?

"Creative Destruction" & Then, 6uild 6ack 6etter
October 20, 2021

We face an occult force dedicating to destroying civilization.

The plandemic is inspired by the satanic doctrine of "Creative Destruction" found in Cabalist Judaism & Freemasonry.

This requires the destruction of the old order which was dedicated to fulfilling God's Will.

Then, the "Great Reset" will create a "New World Order" dedicated to serving Satan.  Hell on Earth. Satanism.


In 1928, Marcus Ravage, a Jewish Rothschild biographer wrote an essay entitled, "The Real Case Against the Jews."

    «You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are disturbers. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom not merely of the latest great war but of nearly all your wars, not only of the Russian but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. "

I believe as the "Final Reset" DePop Progrom ...

Fentanyl will be used to murder millions ( billions? )  of people . There already appears to be enough of the chemical in every country of the world to murder everyone.
It will make Jim Jones and Hitler look like choir boys

Note also ... the only way the world could rely strictly on Solar/Wind for power would be for an extremely reduced world population . This brings back the Georgia Guidestones predictions ...
Fentanyl: Incapacitating Agent
Agent Characteristics

    APPEARANCE: Crystals or crystalline powder.

    DESCRIPTION: Fentanyl is a member of the class of drugs known as fentanyls, rapid-acting opioid (synthetic opiate) drugs that alleviate pain without causing loss of consciousness (analgesic). Fentanyl depresses central nervous system (CNS) and respiratory function. Exposure to fentanyl may be fatal. Fentanyl is estimated to be 80 times as potent as morphine and hundreds of times more potent than heroin. It is a drug of abuse. Fentanyl (and other opioids) could possibly be used as an incapacitating agent to impair a person's ability to function.

In October 2002, the Russian military reportedly used "a fentanyl derivative" against terrorists holding hostages in a Moscow theater; 127 of the hostages died. (It is unclear whether the gas used also included other chemical agent(s).) Fentanyl is odorless.


        Indoor Air: Fentanyl can be released into indoor air as fine particles or liquid spray (aerosol).

        Water: Fentanyl can be used to contaminate water.

      Food: Fentanyl can be used to contaminate food.

        Outdoor Air: Fentanyl can be released into outdoor air as fine particles or liquid spray (aerosol).
      Agricultural: If fentanyl is released into the air as fine particles or liquid spray (aerosol), it has the potential to contaminate agricultural products.

    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: Fentanyl can be absorbed into the body via inhalation, oral exposure or ingestion, or skin contact. It is not known whether fentanyl can be absorbed systemically through the eye. Fentanyl can be administered intravenously (IV), intramuscularly (IM), or as a skin patch (transdermally).


GENERAL INFORMATION: First Responders should use a NIOSH-certified Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) with a Level A protective suit when entering an area with an unknown contaminant or when entering an area where the concentration of the contaminant is unknown. Level A protection should be used until monitoring results confirm the contaminant and the concentration of the contaminant.
NOTE: Safe use of protective clothing and equipment requires specific skills developed through training and experience.

I found this on Breitbart 25 metric tons. No one knows why such an enormous amount was made. It was destined for a drug cartel in Sinaloa (a state in Mexico that runs parallel to Baja on the other side of the bay) A quantity of Fentanyl that large could be aerially sprayed over a city like New York and kill everyone in the city. It takes 3 mg to kill someone. So here's the math: 25 tons is 25, 000 kilograms, 25, 000, 000 grams, 25, 000, 000, 000 milligrams, divided into lethal doses of 3 mg equals 8, 333, 333, 333 lethal doses.How on earth was that much shipped on one ship to Mexico? it was a Danish ship. I agree with Trump when he rips China for the Fentanyl problem, China needs to stop making the stuff.

Why on earth would a drug cartel order enough to kill everyone on the planet? Obviously they wanted an enormous inexhaustible supply.

Border protection stored enough fentanyl to kill 794 million, but isn't doing enough to protect its agents: Watchdog

Watchdog: Fentanyl stored in CBP vaults this year skyrocketed to 3,500 lbs

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has stored enough fentanyl in the past year to kill an estimated 794 million people, and now a government watchdog office is warning that the agency is "unnecessarily jeopardizing the lives" of its own agents by not sufficiently protecting them from accidental exposure to the lethal synthetic opioid.
But when officials inspected several of the 62 vaults around the country operated by CBP, they found cases in which agents handling the powerful narcotic didn't have access to naloxone, the drug that reverses the effects of an overdose. In other cases, inspectors found that the naloxone was locked away in boxes and agents couldn't remember the code.

Naloxone is also known by its brand name Narcan.
