Answering Fear

By Hal Lindsey

I’ve never counted them, but I have read that phrases like “fear not” or “do not be afraid” occur over 300 times in the Bible. Clearly, God does not want us to be afraid. In fact, He commands us not to fear.  That’s because, in many ways, fear and faith are opposites. And Hebrews 11:6 says, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” And yet, when countries around the world are declaring national emergencies, the temptation to fear can grow. When markets falter, and wealth disappears before our eyes, we might be tempted to feel anxiety. The coronavirus COVID-19 is what Psalm 91:6 calls a “pestilence that stalks in darkness.” We know it’s there, and we know it’s deadly, but we can’t see it. When we’re tempted to fear, what does God say? 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” In Acts 20, Paul talked about his many afflictions and trials. Then, in verse 24, he put those difficulties into perspective. He said, “But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” If your hope is in this world only, then you should be afraid. But if through the finished work of Jesus on the cross, you live in the assurance of heaven, then don’t be afraid. Don’t be moved by any of the things the world is throwing at you. Romans 8:15 says, “For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’” The New Living Bible translates Philippians 4:6 like this. “Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Cry out to Him as a child would cry out to his dear father — full of faith and trust. Then thank Him for all He has done.

1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.”

Psalms 34:4 says, “I sought the Lord, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.”

In John 14:27, Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”

Psalms 57:1 says, “In the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by.”

Isaiah 26:3 says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.” These are difficult days. We should be prudent and plan things as well as we can. But panic? Fear? No! Let the Living God keep you in perfect peace.

Power When You Need It Most

By Hal Lindsey

For a long time now, my name has been associated with events of the end times and the expectation of Christ’s soon return. For years, I have warned about a coming era of plagues and pestilence. I’ve talked about a rising tide of totalitarianism that would manifest itself in the time shortly before Jesus comes back. Now, as we live through the times we knew were coming, let me encourage you. We’re watching a massive plague cover the world. We see the globalists acting fast to use the emergency to their own ends. Many of the things we knew were coming have begun to arrive — though not yet with the intensity the world will see later. So, what’s encouraging about that? First, it tells us about something amazing just on the horizon — the return of Jesus! Signs pointing to the Lord’s return should not make us cower, but lift our heads! The other encouraging thing is this. God has not changed. He does not change. His promises remain true — regardless of the trouble in the world. Jesus was very specific. In Matthew 6:2526, He said, “Do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?” In Isaiah 41:10, God spoke specifically to the people of Israel. But the wording makes it clear that it also applies to those who have been made righteous in Jesus Christ. God said, “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Sadly, there are Christians around the world right now who feel frightened, guilty, and powerless. For them it seems impossible to refrain from fear or from anxiously looking about them. They want to believe that He is their God, but they’re not completely sure of their standing with Him. And it’s all because they don’t understand the last clause of that verse.

Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” They think the upholding of their relationship with God depends on their own righteousness. But in fact, it depends on the strength of His righteous right hand. He does the upholding. Our righteous standing before Him depends on the strength of His righteousness. Verse 13 of that same chapter says, “For I am the Lord your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’” Is the message clear? Do not fear. Who upholds us? He does. Who will help us? He will. Then verse 14 says something fascinating. It says, “‘Do not fear, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel; I will help you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.’” He actually refers to Israel as a “worm.” There are several reasons for that designation, but the main one is this. It’s not their righteousness that He’s talking about. He is the Holy One, and it is His holiness that redeems them — and us. So here we stand in the middle of a terrible mess. We hear fearful news on every channel. It’s good to be aware of what’s going on the world, but mostly we need to tune in to God’s channel. Listen to Him. Read His word. Be strong in His strength. Live in His grace!

And as you do that, it becomes easier to obey His command, “Do not fear.”

Report: Israel, Saudis Negotiating Control of Temple Mount

12:00PM EDT 6/2/2020 CBN News/Emily Jones

Israel and Saudi Arabia have been conducting secret negotiations since December about allowing Saudi officials to join the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf responsible for controlling the Temple Mount and Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Israel Hayom reported. "These talks are sensitive and clandestine and have been conducted by small teams of diplomats and security officials from Israel, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia as part of the Trump administrations' Peace to Prosperity Middle East initiative," unnamed senior Saudi diplomats told the Israeli paper.. The Waqf oversees Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem, claims exclusive control over the Temple Mount, and says it is not subject to Israeli law. Jordan exclusively funds and manages the Waqf and according to the report, previously objected to any change in the Waqf council. However, Israel Hayom reports that Amman has since reversed its position because it is worried about the level of Turkey's influence in eastern Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Seven senior Fatah and Palestinian Authority leaders were added to the council last February and opened the door for Turkish Islamic organizations to pump millions of dollars into projects in Jerusalem.

Trump Signs Order on Religious Freedom, Even as Visits to Shrine, Church Draw Fire

By Jeffrey Rubin | Tuesday, 02 June 2020 03:58 PM

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order on religious freedom, even as he's come under fire over visits made to religious sites amid protests over the death of George Floyd. According to Fox News, the order has not yet been publicly released, but a senior administration official said it was intended to protect “people of faith around the world.” Fox News said White House aide Kellyanne Conway confirmed that Trump signed the order Tuesday afternoon. “This executive order fully integrates the president’s vision – a vigorous defense of international religious freedom rights for all – into key aspects of United States foreign policy,” the official said, according to the news organization. “Yet again, President Trump is taking a decisive action to keep his promise to people of faith around the world.” Earlier Tuesday, Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited the National Shrine in Washington, a place of significance and prayer for Catholics. It came after Trump on Monday night walked out of the White House after a speech in which he pledge to use military resources to quell protest violence, heading across the street to St. John’s Episcopal Church. That site had been burned amid protests over Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police. Tear gas and flash bangs were used to disperse protesters and clear the path for Trump's Monday night walk and photo at St. John's.

Washington, D.C. Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory slammed Trump's Tuesday shrine visit in a statement.

“I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to defend the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree,” Gregory wrote. “Saint Pope John Paul II was an ardent defender of the rights and dignity of human beings. His legacy bears vivid witness to that truth,” Gregory added, concluding, “He certainly would not condone the use of tear gas and other deterrents to silence, scatter or intimidate them for a photo opportunity in front of a place of worship and peace.” Gregory’s statement was made following Trump’s appearance in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church on Monday. There, he posed for a photo with a Bible. Trump was criticized by many religious leaders for that photo op because military police cleared out protesters with tear gas prior to his arrival. Episcopal Rev. Gini Gerbasi posted on Facebook that she was “driven off” the church’s patio by police for Trump’s “cheap political stunt.”

Israel won't annex Palestinian towns, Palestinians won’t get citizenship

The plan the Trump administration released in late January, titled “Peace to Prosperity,” would allow for Israel to apply civil law, as opposed to military law, to 30% of the West Bank.

By LAHAV HARKOV JUNE 3, 2020 10:09

Israel will not apply its sovereignty to Palestinian towns within areas that it plans to annex in the West Bank, and as such, Palestinians – including those living in the Jordan Valley – will not be granted Israeli citizenship, American and Israeli sources said on Tuesday.

"I don't anticipate Palestinians becoming Israeli, based on the principles laid out in the plan,” a Trump administration source said.

Recommended by The plan the Trump administration released in late January, titled “Peace to Prosperity,” would allow for Israel to apply civil law, as opposed to military law, to 30% of the West Bank, consisting of all settlements and land surrounding them, and the entire Jordan Valley. An American-Israeli mapping committee has been working on the exact parameters of that area.  The Trump plan does not say that these would be Israel’s final borders, rather that the final details would have to be agreed-upon by Israel and the Palestinians, who refuse to enter negotiations based on the Trump plan. But with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publicly setting a July 1 goal date to begin moving towards applying sovereignty, some Palestinians could find themselves in the middle of sovereign Israel – as opposed to disputed territory governed by the military – this summer.

Netanyahu addressed this issue in an interview with Israel Hayom last week, in response to a question of whether Palestinians in the Jordan Valley will become Israeli citizens. "They will remain a Palestinian enclave,” Netanyahu said. “You're not annexing Jericho. There's a cluster or two. You don't need to apply sovereignty over them, they will remain Palestinian subjects if you will. But security control also applies to these places." One of the principles on which the Trump administration composed the plan is that no one would have to leave their home. The result has been a map that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas quipped is “like Swiss cheese.” According to the plan, 97% of Palestinians in the West Bank will live in contiguous Palestinian territory. The other 3% would live in “enclaves that remain inside contiguous Israeli territory” but that are still designated to be part of a Palestinian state, and when that state is established, those residents would become Palestinian citizens. Their towns would have access routes connecting them to the contiguous Palestinian state. It is unclear how many Palestinians fall under this category, and different sources give different numbers. The Trump plan gives the Palestinian leadership four years to meet the standards it sets to establish a state, including stopping incitement and violence against Israel, and providing equal civil rights to its people. Even after a Palestinian state is formed, Israel would have control over security in the entire West Bank. In the interim, Palestinians enclaves would remain under the Palestinian Authority’s jurisdiction for civil matters, despite being surrounded by newly-sovereign Israeli land, or as the plan states, “the legal status quo will prevail and the State of Israel will enable the development of those Palestinian communities within their current footprint.” The plan does not address illegal Palestinian construction in areas within the municipal borders of Israeli settlements.

When Abbas condemned the map as "Swiss cheese" in the UN Security Council in February, he asked: "Who among you will accept a similar state and similar conditions?" Israel would, since the plan’s conceptual map also includes Israeli enclaves within the area designated for a future Palestinian state, though in the immediate term, there would not be such a state. Several countries in the world have exclaves, which is an area that can only be reached from the mainland by crossing through the territory of another state. Among those are Baarle-Hertog, Belgian exclaves in the Netherlands; Llivia, an exclave of Spain surrounded by France; and Campione d'Italia, an exclave of Italy surrounded by Switzerland. In the Middle East, four of the United Arab Emirates have five exclaves.

Multiple officers shot during overnight protests in St. Louis, Las Vegas

Jay Cannon, USA TODAY Published 10:31 a.m. ET June 2, 2020 | Updated 2:57 p.m. ET June 2, 2020

Multiple law enforcement officers were shot Monday night and Tuesday morning as protests continued across the nation in the wake of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis.

Four officers in St. Louis were hit with gunfire during overnight protests, and an officer shot in Las Vegas was in critical condition Tuesday morning, officials said. The shooting incidents came hours after President Donald Trump addressed the nation at the White House Rose Garden, promising to deploy military forces if protests continued to turn violent. Many demonstrations started out peacefully, but some, like the protests in Chicago and Seattle, became more violent as the day went on.

Monday marked one week since Floyd died after a Minneapolis police officer held his knee on Floyd's neck during an arrest. A report from Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office as well as a family-commissioned autopsy, both released Monday, ruled his death a homicide.

4 St. Louis officers hit by gunfire, retired police captain killed

Protests that began peacefully over the death of George Floyd turned violent in the St. Louis area, where four police officers were shot and a retired St. Louis police captain was shot to death by looters at a pawn shop. St. Louis police on Tuesday said 77-year-old David Dorn, who retired in 2007 after 38 years with the department, was fatally shot by a looter. Several thousand people joined the demonstrations in St. Louis over Floyd's death and police treatment of African Americans on Monday. But that night, a downtown convenience store was burned, windows were smashed, businesses burglarized and officers were pelted with rocks and fireworks. St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson on Tuesday announced a 9 p.m. curfew. “What started as a very nonviolent and peaceful demonstration and protest ended in looting, shooting, burning and attacks on law enforcement,” she said. “This cannot be and will not be tolerated.” Just after midnight, with only a couple of hundred people still on the streets, someone opened fire on officers standing in line, Police Chief John Hayden said. Two officers were struck in the leg, one was hit in the foot and one was hit in the arm. All four are expected to recover. – Jim Salter, Associated Press

Las Vegas officer in critical condition

A Las Vegas Metro officer was in critical condition Tuesday morning after a man who was believed to be a protester shot him Monday night, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said. Lombardo said officers were attempting to clear protesters from Las Vegas Boulevard when the officer was shot some time before midnight. The officer was on life support at University Medical Center in Las Vegas Tuesday morning.

A suspect in the shooting was arrested about 2:30 a.m. local time. A separate shooting in Las Vegas took place Monday night when an armed man wearing body armor was shot and killed by police and federal agents guarding a federal building after he reached for his firearm at 11:22 p.m., the sheriff said. Lombardo said the man was an open-carry individual and was seen walking among protesters as the demonstration was dying down. “What has occurred is utterly unacceptable," Lombardo said before ending the brief press conference. – Ed Komenda, Reno Gazette Journal

‘My Family Is God-Fearing’: George Floyd’s Brother Gives Powerful Speech Demanding Peace

By Tré Goins-Phillips    Editor June 1, 2020

In a powerful speech delivered during a prayer vigil Monday, George Floyd’s younger brother Terrence called on protesters to demonstrate peacefully, rebuking the riots that have broken out across the country. George Floyd was killed one week ago by a former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on his neck for nearly 10 minutes, until he died. Mr. Floyd was unarmed and cooperative. The officer has since been arrested and charged with murder. ‘Free Hugs Guy’ Criticized for Painting Over Graffiti, Issues Perfect Response Since then, protests have broken out. While there have been countless peaceful demonstrations, there have been numerous violent riots around the U.S. Terrence Floyd’s speech — the continuation of his message of peace — called an immediate end to the violence. He equated the violent riots to drinking, explaining it “might feel good for the moment, but when you come down, you’re gonna wonder what you did.” “My family is a peaceful family,” Terrence Floyd said. “My family is God-fearing. Yeah, we’re upset. But we’re not gonna take it, we’re not gonna be repetitious.”

“Do this peacefully, please,” he continued. “My brother moved [to Minneapolis] from Houston, and I used to talk to him on the phone. He loved it here. … I highly doubt — no, I know — he would want y’all to be doing this.” Terrence Floyd made similar calls for peace on ABC News.

Communist terrorist organization Antifa plans PURGE of American suburbs and family homes starting tonight

Tuesday, June 02, 2020 by: S.D. Wells

(Natural News) Consider yourself “warned” America. It’s not just a home invasion “thriller” movie anymore; it’s the beginning of the litmus test for Socialist “Democrat” tyranny. How much will YOU tolerate? On Twitter, the paid-to-destroy people and property organization and extreme Left wing of George Soros, Antifa announced that they would be moving into the residential areas tonight, because they’re already bored with the mega-city demolition and mayhem they’ve caused.   “F-the City” they decry, as groups in Portland announced gathering locations right in the middle of middle-class suburbia-style residential “hoods,” nowhere near downtown, to “take what’s ours” – whatever that means (probably your money, all your belongings, and your wife and kids to sell on the slave trade dark web). Twitter shut it all down. Still, millions of screen shots of the posts are flooding truth media. Proof Trump’s right about the label as a terrorist organization the military needs to handle, head on. These freaks are talking about home invasions in suburbs, beginning tonight. They’re already burning churches. What’s next? Mass rape and murder, like in the Purge movie series? Are all Democrat Governors being told to stand down by Obama, Soros and Bill Gates?

Civil War is under way in America: Trump and the U.S. patriots vs. the violent stooges of Soros The hills have eyes folks. If and when Antifa knocks down the wrong front door or burns the wrong car in the “burbs,” they’re going to start finding rude awakenings that look like the defense of the Bundy Ranch or the Richmond Capital, with ex-military from Iraq and Afghanistan smoking them all with automatic weapons. That’s where it’s going if Antifa invades homes in nice neighborhoods. That’s exactly where it’s going. If you think for one minute Antifa riots have anything to do with George Floyd’s death, think again. Antifa militants are domestic terrorists. They’re admitting on video they work for George Soros groups and are paid to destroy things and recruit more people to destroy property and people’s lives. Meanwhile, heaps of bricks are showing up at protest locations on pallets, ready to be thrown through store windows and automobile windshields, or at anyone who’s wearing anything red. A year ago, Republican senators Cruz (Tx.) and Cassidy (La.) tried their best to push for the pro-facist “anti-fascist” group to be labeled the domestic terrorists they are (that was after the conservative Portland journalist was attacked). “Hateful, intolerant radicals” use aggressive violence to advance unhinged agenda, explains Senator Cruz So Antifa is now bored with destroying cop cars, looting stores, beating to death innocent protesters, and lighting churches and banks on fire, so they’re heading into the neighborhoods to confiscate what they claim is theirs. These are convicts and thugs who love getting paid to destroy property and people, because the don’t fear jail, where they’ll ironically probably die of Covid-19, if they get caught. The major problem is everybody is wearing a mask thanks to these Democrat governors who said it’s mandatory at all times, everywhere, so it’s not just Antifa that can’t be identified on video, but Black Lives Matter, innocent bystanders, normal peaceful protesters, store owners, and the like. Now, in America, even if you’re a good cop who treats people fairly, you’re still the enemy of Antifa, who want complete anarchy and Soros to rule the sick, dying world of “Democrat” morons who think “democratic socialism” is better than having Trump as President. Senator Cruz and Donald Trump are right. It’s time for heavily-armed military forces to start pillaging the pillagers and putting them in jail for 10 years to life. Antifa is a terrorist organization that pays violent psychopaths, buses them into cities from all over the country, and arms them with sticks, flammable propellants, Molotov cocktails and bricks, and pays them bonuses for burning down buildings and recruiting more people to do the same. Watch as a man admits George Soros pays violent protesters to destroy our nation. Tune your internet dial to Trump.news for updates at battleground level, ground zero, of the Soros-sponsored communist-style apocalypse.

Evil Reigns Supreme Across America: George Soros Funded Antifa and Black Lives Matters Anarchists Wreak Havoc!

May 31, 2020 by Jon Watkins

Make no mistake about it. These ARE the People who and being CONTROLLED by the Principalities, Powers, Rulers of Darkness and Spiritual Wickedness in High places

WE CAN’T BREATHE: America Wakes To Stunning Carnage In Over 30 States As Tyranny And Anarchy Become Simultaneous For First Time In Our Nation’s History Police cars and government buildings burned, the National Guard was deployed, and some of the country’s largest cities instituted curfews. In one Midwest city, a person was killed and at least two more shot. More than 1,400 people have been arrested in 16 cities since Thursday, with more than 500 of those happening in Los Angeles on Friday, the Associated Press reported. Geoffrey Grider | NTEB – Demonstrations across the country again devolved into unrest Saturday, a day after a Minneapolis police officer was arrested and charged with the third-degree murder and manslaughter of George Floyd. Just as in past years, an organic protest over unjust use of force by police has once again been hijacked, weaponized and unleashed back on American cities, causing a mind-numbing degree of carnage, death and destruction. And as in past flare-ups, we see once again George Soros, his Open Society Foundation, and their twin pitbulls of ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter pulling all the strings. But this particular protest is unlike all the others, this one has the potential to be the one that brings it all down to the ground.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.On the surface it purports to be a protest over the unjust killing of George Floyd, but after 4 days of rioting in the streets, no one watching believes that anymore. It is obvious that this is all part and parcel of the global takeover by the New World Order who must first collapse America before she can be rebuilt. It’s all connected, the COVID-19 lockdowns, mandatory mask wearing, the destruction of the global economies, the sky-high unemployment, the broken supply chain lines, and even the toilet paper shortage. It is all staged to inflict and incite the maximum level of fear as possible, and it is working. Have you ever watched fireworks on the Fourth of July? Then you know how it goes. Fireworks start out slow and seemingly random but gradually build into a frenzied ‘grand finale’ where it seems like every rocket ever made is being fired at the same time. It is tantamount to complete sensory overload. That is where we are in 2020, a year in which there has been no let up, no break in the end times action, where it seems every weapon of the New World Order is being fired at us at the same time. If you think things have been bad so far, or that they’re bad now, the closer we get to the election in November, it will worsen by a factor of 10. I told you 2020 was going to be a year like no other, that this would be the year of prophecy, and it’s not even close to finished. CLICK HERE FOR YOUR GEORGE SOROS RED PILL, CLICK AWAY TO REMAIN IGNORANT Fires, shootings, curfews, arrests: George Floyd protests weaponized by ANTIFA and George Soros turn to unrest across country

FROM YAHOO NEWS: Police cars and government buildings burned, the National Guard was deployed, and some of the country’s largest cities instituted curfews. In one Midwest city, a person was killed and at least two more shot. More than 1,400 people have been arrested in 16 cities since Thursday, with more than 500 of those happening in Los Angeles on Friday, the Associated Press reported.

Former officer Derek Chauvin faces the charges in Floyd’s death, but activist groups say they are inadequate. Video from a bystander showed Chauvin pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. The demonstrations Saturday were part of a National Day of Protest against Chauvin and police brutality inflicted nationwide. Protesters also called out the names of other people of color killed by police, including Louisville’s Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old ER tech who was shot and killed by police in March. Here is a city-by-city look at what’s happening across the country

Indianapolis: One dead after shooting One person was killed Saturday and at least two more shot during a second night of protests downtown, Indianapolis Police Chief Randal Taylor confirmed in a hastily called late-night press conference. “Enough is enough,” Taylor said as sirens blared and fire trucks raced past on the street. “Indianapolis, we are better than this. Downtown is not safe at this time.” Police did not have details on the individual who was killed nor the conditions of the others shot. Shortly before 1 a.m., the department tweeted again that it was investigating additional reports of shootings downtown. The shootings did not involve officers, police said. Protests during the day Saturday had been peaceful.

New York City: Videos show vehicle’s confrontation with crowd Hundreds of protesters walked against traffic in Manhattan on Saturday afternoon, temporarily stalling vehicles on 7th Ave. The group chanted: “No justice, no peace” and “Whose streets? Our streets.” Late Saturday, videos circulated on social media that show a police vehicle driving into a crowd of protesters, after objects were thrown at the vehicle. Mayor Bill de Blasio called the video “upsetting” and said he wishes the officer “hadn’t done that.” Headded: “It’s clear that a different element has come into play here, who are trying to hurt police officers and trying to damage their vehicles.” He said the situation was started by a group of protesters converging on the police car and attacking it. Other video showed at least one vehicle on fire. An initially peaceful demonstration in the city had spiraled into chaos Friday, as protesters skirmished with police officers, destroyed police vehicles and set fires.

Video posted to social media on Friday showed officers using batons and shoving protesters as they took people into custody and cleared streets. One video showed an officer slam a woman to the ground as he walked past her. RIOTERS IN ROCHESTER NEW YORK VANDALIZE STORE AND ASSAULT OWNERS Denver: Car crashes into police; weapons confiscated Three officers and a civilian were “severely” injured when a car crashed into a Denver police vehicle, the police department tweeted late Saturday. Police said they were searching for a Chevrolet compact car with Wyoming plates. The city had enacted a curfew from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. A few agitators, the department said, were “hijacking” Floyd’s memory. Police shared photos of a gun, a gas canister and a hatchet — all of which were confiscated Saturday. “Last night, agitators brought crowbars, baseball bats, assault rifles, hand guns and improvised flash-bangs which were thrown at police officers and protesters,” Chief Paul Pazen said in a statement on Saturday. Police on Saturday announced 34 arrests over the last two nights in Denver amid Floyd protests.

Washington: Protests escalate near White House, Trump warns against ‘mob violence’ Protesters clashed with police outside the White House Saturday, as tensions flared there for a second day.  Protesters marched and chanted “No justice! No peace!” and “I can’t breathe!” – a phrase Floyd was heard saying before his death – in Lafayette Square, across the street from the White House and along surrounding streets. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., stood with peaceful protesters outside the White House during the afternoon. Protesters stood facing a line of police wearing helmets and holding shields, the officers with their backs to the White House. At times, some protesters tried to knock over barriers or attacked officers around the White House perimeter, although none scaled the surrounding fence, according to the Secret Service. “Multiple” special agents and uniformed officers were injured when some protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles and fireworks at officers, officials said.

Officers responded by firing tear gas to break up the crowds. President Donald Trump attended the historic SpaceX rocket launch in Florida during the afternoon, but arrived back at the White House around 8:30 p.m. as protests raged outside. As the presidential helicopters buzzed overheard near the White House grounds, some demonstrators shouted obscenities and shook their fists.

Trump used an address at the Kennedy Space Center to offer a stern warning against violence by “rioters, looters and anarchists.” Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted Saturday that the city’s police department would protect everyone, regardless of whether the mayor agreed with them. — Nicholas Wu, David Jackson, Courtney Subramanian and John Fritze, USA TODAY

WATCH ANTIFA RECRUITER HIRING THUGS TO ESCALATE THE VIOLENCE Cincinnati: Violence, clashes with police as night falls Another wave of civil unrest hit Cincinnati’s streets Saturday as peaceful protests gave way to violence for the second consecutive night, with police firing tear gas and making arrests.  Tensions between police and demonstrators boiled over outside District 1 police headquarters after 9 p.m., when some protesters began throwing debris at officers who had gathered outside the entrance with riot shields. Police responded by pushing the crowd away, firing tear gas and bean bag rounds as they marched forward. At one point, some in the crowd tried to build a makeshift barrier with trash cans, but police pushed through and arrested several people. Others fled down streets and alleys.

One person was seen breaking a glass window. — Des Moines Register staff

Minneapolis: Projectiles fired to clear protesters The National Guard started moving into downtown Minneapolis on Saturday, after days of unrest. “The situation in Minnesota is no longer in any way about the murder of George Floyd. It is about attacking civil society, instilling fear and disrupting our great cites,” Gov. Tim Walz said in a press conference. An 8 p.m. curfew would be strictly enforced, major highways would be closed and those on the streets Saturday night could be subject to arrest, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and Saint Paul Mayor Melvin Carter said Saturday night. “Don’t go out of your homes; don’t make things more difficult,” Walz said.  As curfew approached, hundreds of protesters sat to await the arrival of law enforcement near Fifth Precinct. One commented that police couldn’t arrest the whole group. Soon, black-clad law enforcement approached to the sound of explosions. Some demonstrators chanted: “Hands up, don’t shoot!” Police officers fired nonlethal projectiles toward masses of people, including a crowd of journalists gathered in an alley next to a looted store. Protesters reported tear gas being used. Some people hobbled away from an intersection appearing to be injured. “State Patrol troopers are moving in to secure the Fifth Precinct. Go home and obey the curfew order now,” Minnesota Department of Public Safety tweeted. — Trevor Hughes and Jordan Culver, USA TODAY

Los Angeles: Looting and destruction mount, mayor sets curfew Looting and property destruction mounted Saturday in Los Angeles as police worked to disperse protesters after the third evening of mass demonstrations. City Mayor Eric Garcetti set a curfew from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. throughout the whole city. Police set up skirmish lines throughout the downtown area and fired non-lethal ammunition in at least one incident, City News Service reported. Garcetti requested the National Guard.  Protesters looted several downtown businesses, including a Target store, a Rite Aid, a Starbucks and jewelry stores near Sixth Street and Broadway. Fires were ignited near the intersection of Hill and Seventh Street, and in one case, a person threw the hose being used by a firefighter into a smoldering fire. Garcetti urged residents to go home. “When things burn, it is not the time to stay,” he said. Taking part in civil unrest, he added, does a disservice to Floyd’s memory. He noted Los Angeles has seen unrest over racial issues before, a nod to the Watts Riots in 1965 and the disturbance after the Rodney King verdict that exonerated the police officers who were videotaped beating him in 1992.  — Chris Woodyard, USA TODAY Fayetteville, North Carolina: Reporter injured as looters break into J.C. Penney Protests turned violent in Fayetteville even after police opted to close access to downtown areas of the city. People reportedly went to a local mall and were seen running in an out of the J.C. Penney amid reports of looting. A reporter for the Fayetteville Observer reporter was attacked while shooting video from the scene and is being treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.  The Fayetteville Police Department earlier tweeted it was “deploying officers to stop the damage to property and violence.”

Memphis: One protest ends peacefully, the other in chaos About two hours after a demonstration against police brutality ended peacefully on Saturday night, a confrontation played out between a crowd of people and a team of police officers in riot gear and on horseback. When police horses entered the area, a chaotic few seconds followed: Police barricades tumbled to the ground and people fell down. Glass bottles flew through the air. At one point the crowd chanted: “No justice, no peace.” The standoff was a dramatic contrast from a peaceful protest march earlier in the evening. That demonstration had apparently ended without arrests, and the police had largely let it play out on its own, without interference. Most of the crowd from the protest march left around 9 p.m.

Australian researchers see virus design manipulation

By Bill Gertz - The Washington Times - Thursday, May 21, 2020

A forthcoming Australian scientific study concludes that the coronavirus causing the global pandemic contains unique properties suggesting it was manipulated in a Chinese laboratory and was not the result of a natural occurrence. Five scientists who conducted the study discovered an unusual ability of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as the pathogen behind COVID-19 is called, to easily infect humans. The scientists said there is no sign so far that the virus can be found in other animals, including bats or the exotic wildlife sold for fresh meat at a market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the virus was first identified and where China maintains a major laboratory studying such viruses. The preliminary report of the study, which is now being peer-reviewed, is based on computer modeling of the virus’ ability to infect various animals, including humans. It was published May 13 on the Cornell University website arXiv.org, which is used for discussion of pre-publication papers. Nikolai Petrovsky, the lead researcher, said his team suspects human manipulation in Wuhan because of the unmatched ability of the virus’ protruding spike to infect human cells. The virus’ binding strength for human cells “far exceeds” similar properties for infecting other animals, he said in a statement on the forthcoming report. “This, plus the fact that no corresponding virus has been found to exist in nature, leads to the possibility that COVID-19 is a human-created virus,” said Mr. Petrovsky, a professor at the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. “It is therefore entirely plausible that the virus was created in the biosecurity facility in Wuhan by selection on cells expressing human ACE2, a laboratory that was known to be cultivating exotic bat coronaviruses at the time.” ACE2 is the acronym for angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, which is on cell surfaces. The enzyme is the entry point the coronavirus uses to infect organisms and spread. Human lung cells contain ACE2 receptors that have been shown to be key targets of the SARS-CoV-2. A laboratory-treated coronavirus also could have escaped the facility through an accidental infection of a staff member who then visited the Wuhan wild animal market, Mr. Petrovsky said. Other potential sources include inappropriate disposal of medical waste at a Wuhan laboratory or transmission from a cat or other animal that came into contact with infected waste. Mr. Petrovsky said the research team believes the quick evolution of the coronavirus and its unique ability to infect humans are either “a remarkable coincidence or a sign of human intervention.” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying denied again this month that the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which houses China’s high-security laboratory studying pathogens, was the source of the outbreak. The head of the Wuhan laboratory has also said she is convinced after a review that her lab played no role in the virus’ spread. Another Chinese Foreign Ministry official, Zhao Lijian, suggested that the U.S. Army brought the virus to China. President Trump and other top officials angrily denied that accusation. The Australian study contradicts other scientists’ assertions that there is no evidence the virus originated in a Chinese laboratory or that it is the result of laboratory bioengineering. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a key adviser to Mr. Trump on the pandemic, has dismissed any suggestion that the virus came from a Chinese laboratory. “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what’s out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated,” he told National Geographic this month “Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species.” ‘Highly adapted’ pathogen The forthcoming study, however, concludes that the binding energy of the virus’ “spike” protein — the crownlike protrusions surrounding the surface of the round microbe — is highest for humans and greater than all other species tested, including bats, which have been widely targeted as the likely original source. “This indicates that SARS-CoV-2 is a highly adapted human pathogen,” the Australian report said. The team analyzed spike protein binding of the virus on a range of other animals, including pangolins, civets, mice, hamsters, cats, dogs, snakes, horses, tigers and cows. “Overall, the data indicates that SARS-CoV-2 is uniquely adapted to infect humans, raising important questions as to whether it arose in nature by a rare chance event or whether its origins might lie elsewhere,” the report said. Jonathan J. Couey, a research assistant professor of neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh, said he agrees with the Australian findings “Understanding the exact origin of this virus is vital to ensure that all scientific and medical data are interpreted correctly by policymakers and health care professionals alike,” Mr. Couey said. However, he said, debate on the laboratory origin of the virus has been stymied by scientists opposed to even considering the possibility. “Several scientists with obvious conflicts of interest have been permitted to go on the record denying that it would be possible to generate such a virus in a laboratory and stating specifically that the sequence of SARS-CoV-2 would never have been chosen by any ‘gene jockey,’” he said in an email. “Both of these denials are not genuine scientific rebuttals, but rather semantic pseudo-denials formulated by some of those most closely tied to the funding of these [gain of function] research lines.” “Gain-of-function research” is laboratory work to increase the ability of pathogens to cause disease. It is carried out to study pandemics and how to respond to them. U.S. investigation Research institutions and U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating the origin of the virus, which has now infected nearly 5 million people worldwide and is blamed for at least 323,000 deaths.

But public and private researchers have said it is impossible to dismiss the possibility of an accidental leak from the Wuhan laboratory of what became the COVID-19 strain. Research institutions and U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating the origin of the virus, which has now infected nearly 5 million people worldwide and is blamed for at least 323,000 deaths.

The features, they said, are similar to those found in the virus known as HIV. Those scientists concluded that similar structures are “unlikely to be fortuitous in nature.” The Indian paper was withdrawn under pressure from China, but the scientists involved refused to repudiate their research and promised to publish their findings eventually. Mr. Petrovsky, who is also research director for Vaxine Pty Ltd., a biotechnology company based in Bedford Park, South Australia, said the source of the virus remains a vitally important question. “While COVID-19 has close similarities to SARS and other bat viruses, no natural virus matching to COVID-19 has been found in nature despite an intensive search to find its origins,” he said. “This raises the very legitimate question of whether the COVID-19 virus might be the result of human intervention.” Like other scientists who studied the virus, the Australian team did not find easily recognizable artificial gene inserts that would signal virus engineering. Mr. Petrovsky said there are ways to manipulate viruses without such inserts. For example, laboratory technicians could take a bat coronavirus that is not infectious to humans and force its evolution by culturing the virus with cells source of the virus remains a vitally important question. “While COVID-19 has close similarities to SARS and other bat viruses, no natural virus matching to COVID-19 has been found in nature despite an intensive search to find its origins,” he said. “This raises the very legitimate question of whether the COVID-19 virus might be the result of human intervention.” Like other scientists who studied the virus, the Australian team did not find easily recognizable artificial gene inserts that would signal virus engineering.

Since those mutations would be acquired randomly in a laboratory, there would be no signature of bioengineering “but this is clearly a virus still created by human intervention.” The Chinese government initially said the virus appeared to originate in the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan but later changed its official version to say the origin is something for scientists to study. Beijing initially opposed international calls for an investigation into how the disease outbreak began but this week said it would support an independent WHO probe of the handling of the disease outbreak at an unspecified date. Critics say Chinese secrecy has prevented scientists from learning about the virus. However, “the nature of this event and its proximity to a high-risk biosecurity facility at the epicenter of the outbreak demands a full and independent international inquiry to ascertain whether a virus of this kind of COVID-19 was being cultured in the facility and might have been accidentally released,” Mr. Petrovsky said.

Trump’s China Trade War Could Lead To Xi’s Destruction- Beijing has reacted to economic crisis by by cracking down domestically, which could have unintended consequences.

Posted by Klark JoussMay 28, 2020

Many observers dismiss the China policies of President Donald Trump as mere protectionism or worse, but in fact the White House has put Chinese dictator Xi Jinping into an increasingly difficult bind. By pursuing America’s long neglected interests in global trade and supporting democracy in Hong Kong, Washington may be pushing China towards political change and even an eventual democratic opening. On Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the Trump Administration no longer considered Hong Kong to have significant autonomy from mainland China (citing in part China’s latest intention to crack down on the island’s protests with a new national security law), suggesting that it may have rescind special trade status with Hong Kong as a result. Doing so would have widespread repercussions for Hong Kong and Chinese markets, though the National People’s Congress was still poised to pass the controversial security law despite the threat on Thursday. The administration also took off the gloves with China over U.S. listings by mainland companies that fail to follow U.S. securities laws. This came after the Commerce Department finally moved to limit access by Huawei Technologies to high-end silicon chips made with U.S. lithography machines. The trade war with China is heating up, but a conflict was inevitable and particularly when it comes to technology. At the bleeding edge of 7 and 5 nanometer feature size, American tech still rules the world of semiconductors. In 2018, Qualcomm confirmed its next-generation Snapdragon SoC would be built at 7 nm. Huawei has already officially announced its first 7nm chip—the Kirin 980. But now Huawei is effectively shut out of the best in class of custom-made chips, giving Samsung and Apple a built-in advantage in handsets and network equipment. It was no secret that Washington allowed Huawei to use loopholes in last year’s blacklist rules to continue to buy U.S. sourced chips. Now the door is closed, however, as the major Taiwan foundries led by TSMC will be forced to stop custom production for Huawei, which is basically out of business in about 90 days when its inventory of chips runs out. But even as Huawei spirals down, the White House is declaring financial war on dozens of other listed Chinese firms. President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox Business News that forcing Chinese companies to follow U.S. accounting norms would likely push them to list in non-U.S. exchanges. Chinese companies that list their shares in the U.S. have long refused to allow American regulators to inspect their accounting audits, citing direction from their government—a practice that market authorities here have been unwilling or unable to stop. The attack by the Trump Administration on shoddy financial disclosure at Chinese firms is long overdue, but comes at a time when the political evolution in China is turning decidedly authoritarian in nature and against any pretense of market-oriented development. The rising power of state companies in China parallels the accumulation of power in the hands of Xi Jinping, who is increasingly seen as a threat to western-oriented business leaders. The trade tensions with Washington provide a perfect foil to crack down on popular unrest in Hong Kong and discipline wayward oligarchs. The latest moves by Beijing to take full control in Hong Kong are part of the more general retrenchment visible in China. “[P]rivate entrepreneurs are increasingly nervous about their future,” writes Henny Sender in the Financial Times. “In many cases, these entrepreneurs have U.S. passports or green cards and both children and property in America. To be paid in U.S. dollars outside China for their companies must look more tempting by the day.” A torrent of western oriented Chinese business leaders is exiting before the door is shut completely. The fact is that China’s position in U.S. trade has retreated as nations like Mexico and Vietnam have gained. Mexico is now America’s largest trading partner and Vietnam has risen to 11th, reports Qian Wang of Bloomberg News. Meanwhile, China has dropped from 21 percent of U.S. trade in 2018 to just 18 percent last year. A big part of the shift is due to the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade pact, which is expected to accelerate a return of production to North America. Sourcing for everything from autos to semiconductors is expected to rotate away from China in coming years. China abandoned its decades-old practice of setting a target for annual economic growth, claiming that it was prioritizing goals such as stabilizing employment, alleviating poverty and preventing risks in 2020. Many observers accept the official communist party line that the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic made it almost impossible to fix an expansion rate this year, but in fact the lasting effects of the 2008 financial crisis and the aggressive policies of President Trump have rocked China back on its heels. As China becomes increasingly focused inward and with an eye on public security, the economic situation is likely to deteriorate further. While many observers viewed China’s “Belt & Road” initiative as a sign of confidence and strength, in fact it was Beijing’s attempt to deal with an economic realignment that followed the 2008 crisis. The arrival of President Trump on the scene further weakened China’s already unstable mercantilist economic model, where non-existent internal demand was supposed to make up for falling global trade flows. Or at least this was the plan until COVID-19. “Before the Covid-19 outbreak, many economists were expecting China to set a GDP growth target of 6% to 6.5% to reflect the gradual slowdown in the pace of expansion over the past few years,” reports Caixin Global. “Growth slid to 6.1% in 2019 from 6.7% in 2018. But the devastation caused by the coronavirus epidemic — which saw the economy contract 6.8% year-on-year in the first quarter — has thrown those forecasts out of the window.” Out of the window indeed. Instead of presiding over a glorious expansion of the Chinese sphere of influence in Asia, Xi Jinping is instead left to fight a defensive action economically and financially. The prospective end of the special status of Hong Kong is unlikely to have any economic benefits and may actually cause China’s problems with massive internal debt and economic malaise to intensify. Beijing’s proposed security law would reduce Hong Kong’s separate legal status and likely bring an end to the separate currency and business environment. Trump economic advisor Larry Kudlow, speaking to Fox News Channel, called Beijing’s actions “very disturbing.” He said that Washington would back any American companies that wanted to leave Hong Kong or China’s mainland to come home. “We will do what we can for full expensing and pay the cost of moving if they return their supply chains and their production to the United States,” he told Fox News. The trade war is underway and in earnest. If you had predicted prior to 2016 that America would have a nationalist president who was willing to discard the puerile corporate interests that want closer commercial ties with China and instead pursue America’s strategic interests, most people would have rightly laughed. In 2016, we awaited the enthronement of Hillary Clinton, but remarkably got Donald Trump, who is not afraid to use China as a useful political whipping boy while also pursuing a strategy to destabilize one of the last truly authoritarian regimes on earth. Mao Tse Tung said: “A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.” The truth is that China has always been weak, even if its outward behavior is aggressive, even obnoxious. But beneath the confident exterior is a nation that still cannot feed itself, lacks stable sources of energy and is addicted to using debt to spur short-term economic growth. As Chinese in Hong Kong and other parts of China demand greater openness and accountability, the grip on power of the Chinese Communist Party is weakening. In order to retain power, Xi Jinping must be ready to use even harsher authoritarian methods, a path that will ultimately lead to his destruction.

We Are Being Told To Prepare “To See High Prices At Grocery Stores” And “It’s Likely That Shortages May Only Get Worse”

May 26, 2020 by Michael Snyder

If you have been to a grocery store lately, then you already know that prices are higher than usual and that there are shortages of certain items. Many Americans have been assuming that as COVID-19 restrictions are slowly rolled back that these shortages will eventually disappear, but now even the Washington Post is admitting that “shortages may get worse” in the weeks and months ahead. Of course there will still be plenty of food available in the grocery stores, but you may have to do without some of your favorite products for a while. And you should also brace yourself for significantly higher prices for many of the products that do remain available. As WBTV has noted, this will especially be true for basic meat staples such as ground beef and chicken… Americans looking to get outside this holiday weekend, maybe fire up the grill, should be prepared to see high prices at grocery stores, especially cookout staples like ground beef and chicken. The meat at the store is a little bit more expensive because of plants that are shutting down and causing a logjam in the food supply chain. All over the country, COVID-19 is playing havoc with food distribution systems, and nobody has been hit harder than meat processing facilities. The virus has spread like wildfire in such facilities, and this has resulted in many of them being forced to shut down for an extended period of time. With less supply and roughly the same level of demand, meat prices have escalated quite a bit in recent weeks. In fact, in April we witnessed the largest spike in food prices in 46 years… Prices Americans paid for eggs, meat, cereal and milk shot higher in April as people flocked to grocery stores to stock up on food amid government lockdowns designed to slow the spread of Covid-19. The Labor Department reported Tuesday that prices U.S. consumers paid for groceries jumped 2.6% in April, the largest one-month pop since February 1974. The spike in supermarket prices was broad based and impacted items from broccoli and ham to oatmeal and tuna. Of course there have also been whispers that some funny business has been taking place among the meatpacking giants, and federal officials are now investigating allegations of price fixing… Federal prosecutors are looking into allegations that the meatpacking industry is coordinating or manipulating prices, a person familiar with the investigation told FOX News. The Department of Justice investigation has been going on for “months,” the source said. Prosecutors are specifically scrutinizing the four largest meatpackers in the U.S., which control more than 80 percent of the market: JBS, National Beef, Tyson Foods and Cargill. But no matter how that investigation unfolds, we should expect higher prices to continue, because the industry simply cannot produce as much meat as usual with so many facilities shut down right now. And with each passing day, we learn of more workers that have become infected. In fact, 570 workers at a single Tyson Foods plant in North Carolina just tested positive for the virusMeat processing plants across the country are struggling with outbreaks of the coronavirus. That includes the Tyson Foods chicken processing facility in Wilkes County, N.C. More than 2,200 workers were tested at the Wilkesboro plant, and 570 were positive for the coronavirus. With so many meat processing facilities all over the nation currently idle, many farmers simply do not have anyone to sell to right now, and this has pushed many of them to the brink of financial ruin. For example, it is exceedingly expensive to raise chickens on a massive scale, but with so many plants closed down North Carolina farmers are now being forced “to euthanize 1.5 million chickens”… Coronavirus outbreaks at meat processing plants are forcing North Carolina farmers to euthanize 1.5 million chickens, according to a state official.

Assistant Agriculture Commissioner Joe Reardon told The News & Observer that this is the first time during the pandemic that North Carolina farmers have had to euthanize their animals. Roughly a third of the 1.5 million chickens already had been killed, Reardon said. Similar scenarios are playing out all over the U.S., and this is truly a tremendous tragedy. Unlike some other areas around the globe right now, we would actually have plenty of meat if the farmers could get their animals through the supply chain. Unfortunately, fear of COVID-19 has thrown the supply chain into a state of chaos, and that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. In fact, the mainstream media is now warning us “that shortages may only get worse”… The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated at least 5,000 workers were infected by the end of April, though advocates have suggested there could be more than 17,000. And with plants already slow to respond to outbreaks and some still partially closed, it’s likely that shortages may only get worse. The good news is that eventually this pandemic will subside, and when that happens it is likely that the supply chain will start to revert back to normal once again. But if fear of COVID-19 can cause this much chaos for our food distribution systems, what will happen once a much more severe crisis hits us? When things really start going crazy in this country, basic supplies will disappear from the stores very rapidly, and the government is not going to be bringing baskets of food to your door. In the end, you will be on your own. And in the short-term, you should expect food prices to continue to rise. The federal government has been borrowing and spending trillions of dollars that we do not have during this pandemic, and the Federal Reserve has cranked up the money creation machine to absolutely absurd levels. What this means is that the value of our currency is rapidly being devalued, and eventually we will see very painful inflation. I know that food prices seem really high right now, but they are only going to go up from here. So stock up on what you can while you have this window of opportunity to do so, because this window of opportunity will not last indefinitely.

Ex-Top FBI Official: FBI investigated Trump Campaign Without Justification, New Docs Confirm

Document drafted by Peter Strzok to launch ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ is ‘invalid’ and ‘an absurdity’

Jamie White | Infowars.com - May 27, 2020

A document released by the FBI that launched the entire Russia collusion hoax investigation shows the bureau had absolutely zero justification to probe the Trump campaign, according to a former top FBI official. In an editorial for The Hill, former FBI assistant director of intelligence Kevin R. Brock explains how the electronic communication document drafted by now-fired FBI special agent Peter Strzok fails to justify opening the “Crossfire Hurricane” counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s campaign. “Late last week the FBI document that started the Trump-Russia collusion fiasco was publicly released,” Brock wrote Wednesday. “It hasn’t received a lot of attention but it should, because not too long from now this document likely will be blown up and placed on an easel as Exhibit A in a federal courtroom.” Brock systematically breaks down how the document is an “absurdity” and “invalid on its face.” “In a normal, legitimate FBI Electronic Communication, or EC, there would be a ‘To’ and a ‘From’ line. The Crossfire Hurricane EC has only a ‘From’ line; it is from a part of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division whose contact is listed as Peter Strzok,” Brock explained. “The EC was drafted also by Peter Strzok. And, finally, it was approved by Peter Strzok. Essentially, it is a document created by Peter Strzok, approved by Peter Strzok, and sent from Peter Strzok to Peter Strzok.” “An agent cannot approve his or her own case; that would make a mockery of the oversight designed to protect Americans. Yet, for this document, Peter Strzok was pitcher, catcher, batter and umpire.” Brock then notes how the EC was opened as a Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) investigation, which is “rarely investigated” because it involves a clearly established “criminal violation,” of which there was none here. “Ultimately, there was no attempt by Strzok to articulate any factors that address the elements of FARA,” Brock wrote. “He couldn’t, because there are none. Instead, there was a weak attempt to allege some kind of cooperation with Russians by unknown individuals affiliated with the Trump campaign, again, with no supporting facts listed.” “What this FBI document clearly establishes is that Crossfire Hurricane was an illicit, made-up investigation lacking a shred of justifying predication, sprung from the mind of someone who despised Donald Trump, and then blessed by inexperienced leadership at the highest levels who harbored their own now well-established biases.” Brock then asserts that no competent FBI leader would have approved of such a flimsy and poorly-articulated EC. “Instead, the nation was left with an investigation of a presidential campaign that had no legitimate predication; that spawned a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act intercept of a U.S. citizen that had no legitimate predication; that resulted in a confrontation with a new administration’s national security adviser that had no legitimate predication; and, finally, that led to an expensive special counsel investigation that had no legitimate predication.” “Accountability is demanded by the American people. Let’s pray we see some,” he concluded. View the full FBI/Strzok EC below:

CCP Mouthpiece Slams "Habitual Liar" Pompeo, Says US 'Incapable' Of Judging Hong Kong's Autonomy

by Tyler Durden Wed, 05/27/2020 - 16:33

Update (1430ET): One of the most visible english-language mouthpieces for the Communist Party has just weighed in on Secretary Pompeo's decision. Global Times editor Hu Xijin accused Pompeo of being a habitual liar, and insisted it was not up to the US Congress to decide whether Hong Kong is "autonomous". We imagine we'll be hearing more from the Foreign Ministry in a few hours.   * * *

In what appears to be a preview of the at-this-point inevitable White House decision to strip Hong Kong of its preferred trading status over the new National Security law imposed by Beijing, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted on Wednesday that he has "reported to Congress that Hong Kong is no longer autonomous from China." Congress now has the power to strip Hong Kong of its "special status" under the United States-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992, which has allowed for the city-state to be treated more favorably than the rest of China by the US. The status is part of what's allowed Hong Kong to develop as a 'gateway to the West', a key part of its appeal as an international city. Without the US 'special status', HK might lose its international cachet as well, and eventually become just another Chinese city.

Indeed, without such easy access to the global economy, Hong Kong will become just an extension of Shenzen, which lies just across the border on the mainland. In a story published just minutes before Pompeo's tweet, the Washington Post explains that "a US law passed last year requires the secretary of state to certify - as part of an annual report to Congress - whether Hong Kong remains 'sufficiently autonomous' from Beijing to justify its unique treatment. That includes assessing the degree to which Hong Kong’s autonomy had been eroded by the government of China. (Hong Kong is part of China but has a different legal and economic system, a holdover from its time as a British colony.) The law also provides for sanctions against officials deemed responsible for human rights abuses or undermining the city’s autonomy. Such sanctions were also said to be under consideration at the White House in the wake of the Chinese government’s decision in May to impose new national security laws on the city." Stocks have shown a surprising degree of resilience, though the offshore yuan - a key barometer of China-related risks - skidded lower. Aside from the fact that the decision - which was widely anticipated - marks another milestone in the deterioration in Washington-Beijing relations, as police in HK have already begun arresting protesters brave enough to take the streets in the face of an unprecedented police crackdown, it also jeopardizes nearly $40 billion in bilateral trade, as WaPo explains. "Longer term, people might have a second thought about raising money or doing business in Hong Kong," said Kevin Lai, chief economist for Asia excluding Japan at Daiwa Capital Markets. Another expert described revoking HK's special status as "the nuclear option" for the US, and "the beginning of the death of Hong Kong as we know it". For the last day or so, the editor of China's Global Times has been taunting the US in a series of tweets, daring it to use its navy and come save the protesting Hong Kongers, some of whom have written messages begging Trump to interfere. Senior administration officials have insisted that this likely won't be the end of Trump's aggression toward China. Earlier on Wednesday, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who leads the department in charge of Washington's crackdown on Huawei, said the president has more in store. While there's no question rescinding HK's special status will be interpreted as another economy attack by Washington. But there's something else even more alarming possibly lying in wait: The law passed last year in the US also requires the president to freeze US-based assets and bar entry to anyone who helps China repress Hong Kong.  It's this possibility - which we could hear more about in the coming days - that should really stick in investors' minds.

U.S. state of Arizona files consumer fraud lawsuit against Google

by Reuters

Thursday, 28 May 2020 02:03 GMT

May 27 (Reuters) - Arizona filed a consumer fraud lawsuit against Alphabet Inc's Google on Wednesday, alleging that the U.S. tech giant used "deceptive" and "unfair" practices to obtain the location data of users. "Google collects detailed information about its users, including their physical locations, to target users for advertising. Often, this is done without the users' consent or knowledge," Attorney General Mark Brnovich said https://twitter.com/GeneralBrnovich/status/1265770310508466183  in a tweet on Wednesday. The suit comes as technology companies have been facing regulatory scrutiny globally over their policies and data monitoring practices. "The Attorney General and the contingency fee lawyers filing this lawsuit appear to have mischaracterized our services. We have always built privacy features into our products and provided robust controls for location data", a Google spokesman said in an emailed statement. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and argues that the maker of the Android smartphone operating system had set its mobile software such that it deceived device owners about the protections afforded to their personal data. "When consumers try to opt out of Google's collection of location data, the company is continuing to find misleading ways to obtain information and use it for profit," Brnovich said in an interview with the Washington Post. In February, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas sued Google, alleging that its educational software collects young students' personal information without the required parental consent. The world's top search engine sells its Chromebook laptops to schools around the world alongside its free or low-cost G Suite for Education software package, which includes email and writing tools.

Trump to sign executive order on social media after Twitter's fact check warning

By 9News Staff 9:38am May 28, 2020

US President Donald Trump will sign an executive order on social media companies, White House officials have said, after he threatened to shut down the platform he accused of stifling conservative voices. The officials, who spoke to reporters travelling with Mr Trump to Washington from Florida aboard Air Force One on Wednesday, gave no further details. Before leaving for Florida earlier in the day to observe a space launch that was postponed because of bad weather, Mr Trump again accused Twitter Inc and other social media of bias without offering evidence. It was not immediately clear whether Mr Trump has the authority to shut down the companies. Twitter declined comment on news of Mr Trump's plans. Facebook and Google did not immediately comment. The American Civil Liberties Union said the First Amendment of the US Constitution limits any action Mr Trump could take to regulate social media platforms. Separately, a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals in Washington on Wednesday upheld the dismissal of a suit brought by a conservative group and right-wing YouTube personality against Google, Facebook, Twitter and Apple alleging they conspired to suppress conservative political views.

Minneapolis mayhem: Donald Trump calls protesters 'thugs' and threatens to shoot looters in tweet censored by Twitter

Mr Trump's latest dispute with social media emerged after Twitter on Tuesday for the first time attached a warning to some of his tweets prompting readers to fact check the president's claims. In the tweets tagged by Twitter, Trump made unsubstantiated claims about mail-in voting.

Mr Trump falsely claims that mail-in ballots lead to vote fraud and ineligible voters getting ballots.

"Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen," Mr Trump said in a pair of additional posts on Twitter on Wednesday. The president, a heavy user of Twitter with more than 80 million followers, added: "Clean up your act, NOW!!!!" Mr Trump's threat to shut down platforms like Twitter and Facebook is his strongest yet within a broader conservative backlash against big tech.  Shares of both companies fell on Wednesday. Asked during Twitter's annual meeting on Wednesday why the company decided to affix the label to Mr Trump's mail-in ballot tweets, General Counsel Sean Edgett said decisions about handling misinformation are made as a group. "We have a group and committee of folks who take a look at these things and make decisions on what's getting a lot of visibility and traction...", he said. Mr Trump's attack included an accusation the platform of "interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election" and insisting that "as president, I will not allow this to happen."  His 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, said Twitter's "clear political bias" had led the campaign to pull "all our advertising from Twitter months ago." Twitter has banned all political advertising since last November. Mr Trump did not explain his threat on Wednesday, and the call to expand regulation appeared to fly in the face of long-held conservative principles on deregulation. But some Mr Trump allies, who have alleged bias on the part of tech companies, have questioned whether platforms like Twitter and Facebook should continue to enjoy liability protections as "platforms" under federal law — or be treated more like publishers, which could face lawsuits over content. The protections have been credited with allowing the unfettered growth of the internet for more than two decades, but now some Trump allies are advocating that social media companies face more scrutiny.

"Big tech gets a huge handout from the federal government," Republican Senator Josh Hawley told Fox News. "They get this special immunity, this special immunity from suits and from liability that's worth billions of dollars to them every year. Why are they getting subsidised by federal taxpayers to censor conservatives, to censor people critical of China." With Associated Press and Reuters

Truth comes out about Whitmer and coronavirus contract to Dem firms

May 29, 2020 by Peter Hasson, WND:

Michigan governor distanced herself, but new email spills beans Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer distanced herself from a much-criticized decision to award a no-bid contract to two Democratic firms to handle the state’s coronavirus contact tracing. But a senior adviser in the Michigan Department of the Health and Human Services said that the executive office of the governor [EOG] gave the contract a “green light,” a newly public email shows. “We got the green light from EOG to move forward with a slightly different organizational arrangement of the contact tracing volunteer work,” Andrea Taverna, the senior adviser, told her colleagues in an April 17 email obtained and published by Bridge Magazine. “This would still be working with Mike Kolehouse, so work there isn’t lost — it’s just organized somewhat differently,” Taverna wrote. Kolehouse is a Democratic political consultant who runs Great Lakes Community Engagement, the firm that received the no-bid contract from the Whitmer administration. Kolehouse’s firm planned to hire a Democratic data firm working on Whitmer’s re-election campaign as a sub-contractor on the project. Whitmer, who is on former Vice President Joe Biden’s short list of potential running mates, canceled the project April 21 after facing criticism. Her press secretary told The Washington Post that same day that the governor’s office was “uncomfortable” with the arrangement. “The executive office is uncomfortable with this vendor for the same reason others are. The public needs to have confidence that this tracing work is being done by a nonpartisan firm,” press secretary Tiffany Brown told the Post. The next day, April 22, Whitmer distanced herself from the decision to hire the Democratic firm. “The department thought that that vendor was the best one for some reason. I don’t know what that reason was, but I do know that the Department of Health and Human Services does not have a political bone in their theoretical body,” the governor said. “When it was brought to my attention, I told them to cancel it.

Quarantine To Take ‘A Dark New Twist’ As Globalist Rag Warns Of ‘Dark Times Ahead’ For America?

by Stefan Stanford · Published May 28, 2020 · Updated May 28, 2020 from All News Pipeline

According to this new story (saved at archive) over at the left-wing rag ‘the Daily Beast’, “quarantine is about to take a dark new twist”. With their story warning that the combination of the arrival of summer and the hot weather that comes with it AND millions of Americans working at home due to covid-19, electrical grids across the country could be stretched beyond capacity, their story warned to ‘brace for blackouts in the summer of covid-19’. Just the latest warning we’ve gotten this month of a potential grid down scenario in the US, Peter Navarro recently warned of a new ‘threat’ to America that could be much more crippling to the US and our economy than covid-19 and leave America’s economy in utter ruins; China taking down America’s entire power grid via an electro-magnetic pulse attack or a devastating series of cyber attacks. Navarro, the Assistant to the President and Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy and the national Defense Production Act policy coordinator, recently warned of the very real possibility of war on the horizon with China over coronavirus backlash and not surprisingly considering the evolving scenario, back on May 1st, President Trump and the White House published Executive Order #13920, an E.O. written to protect and secure America’s entire bulk power grid system. We have embedded that E.O. at the bottom of this story for you to read in full and with the E.O. beginning “I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that foreign adversaries are increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in the United States bulk-power system“, we felt it best to revisit some ‘grid down scenario prepping’ with warnings now coming from several different sources about the potential of the US grid going down over the summer. And while we’ll pray that any grid down scenario in the US isn’t long-term because any long-term blackouts will bring with it nearly unimaginable consequences, including up to or more than 90% of Americans dead within the following 9 to 18 months should it be nationwide and the grid isn’t fixed, as we’ll explore within the next section of this ANP story, most Americans are totally unaware of the total havoc that would be unleashed. (PLEASE HELP SUPPORT ANP: With Independent Media being censored on almost every internet platform, reader donations are what keeps websites like ANP up and running. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stefan and Susan.) With multiple warnings having come out now of a grid down scenario in our future, including President Trump and the White House putting forth that much-needed ‘executive order’ to hopefully protect America’s power grids, as the website Urban Survival reported, a number of scary things would happen should such the grid go down long term that most Americans don’t think about at all.

1. No More Supply Trucks When the supply trucks stop, no stores are going to get resupplied. It’s not that it matters much anyway, because those stores are going to be looted and then abandoned afterward anyway. This will guarantee that within a few short hours of the grid going down, life will already change dramatically because you will no longer be able to resupply yourself with the things that you need.

2. All The Stores Would Close As was just mentioned, without the resupply trucks, stores and restaurants are most certainly going to be shut down. The only real question is, when will looting occur?

3. Commerce Would Cease This is one that you’re going to want to think about. A grid down situation is seriously going to lead to a complete and utter breakdown of commerce as we know it. Banks will no longer be open, ATM’s won’t work, and debit and credit cards will no longer be of any use.

GOP Alaska legislator compares coronavirus screening sticker to Nazi Germany's Star of David

By Morgan Gstalter - 05/16/20 03:03 PM EDT

A Republican state lawmaker in Alaska is facing backlash from Jewish legislators after he compared coronavirus safety measures at the statehouse to the Nazi treatment of Jewish people. Alaska state Rep. Ben Carpenter (R) complained about the new health screening required for lawmakers returning to the Capitol building this week, Anchorage Daily News reported Friday. In an email copied to all 40 members of the Alaska House, Carpenter reportedly ranted about legislators being asked to wear a sticker proving they’ve passed the screening. “How about an arm band that won’t fall off like a sticker will?” Carpenter wrote. “If my sticker falls off, do I get a new one or do I get public shaming too? Are the stickers available as a yellow Star of David?” His message was immediately condemned by two Democratic members of the legislature who are Jewish, the outlet reported. “Ben, This is disgusting. Keep your Holocaust jokes to yourself,” Rep. Grier Hopkins (D) wrote before adding that, “Putting other people at risk because somebody doesn’t want to get a medical test to make sure they’re not carrying a disease that will kill others is NOT the same as labeling and targeting a group of people for genocide through hatred and ignorance.” “I don’t think a tag that we’re cleared to enter the building is akin to being shipped to a concentration camp,” state Rep. Andy Josephson (D) responded in the thread. “It’s more akin to needing a boarding pass when you get through TSA. This is that.” The exchange, first published by The Alaska Landmine, showed Republican state Rep. Sarah Vance coming to Carpenter’s defense. “We should all be concerned about the implications of being labeled as ‘non compliant’ or wearing a badge of ‘compliance,’” she wrote. Alaska’s House Minority Leader Lance Pruitt (R) said Carpenter’s emails were not appropriate and called for him to apologize. In an interview with the Anchorage Daily News, Carpenter said he didn’t intend to “rile somebody” and certainly has “no ill will toward the Jewish nation and the Jewish people in our country.” However, he said coronavirus safety measures were being blown out of proportion. “We have a way of life that is being threatened right now because we have shut down our economy,” Carpenter said. “Yes, somebody might get sick and somebody might die, but our way of life will continue. And right now, our way of life is in jeopardy.”

He continued to tell the outlet that the state was heading down a slippery slope. While the level of regulations did not match Nazi Germany’s extermination camps, those were not built overnight.

“Can you or I — can we even say it is totally out of the realm of possibility that COVID-19 patients will be rounded up and taken somewhere?Carpenter said. “People want to say Hitler was a white supremacist. No. He was fearful of the Jewish nation, and that drove him into some unfathomable atrocities.” Carpenter sent a follow-up text message to the Anchorage Daily News after the initial publication of the article elaborating on his point. “Hitler wasn’t fearful of a Jewish nation because there was not one. The point was that it was fear that drove him. The attention of his fear was undesirables, including Jews. And the larger point is that PEOPLE FOLLOWED HIM.”  Hopkins rejected Carpenter’s argument.

“That’s not what led to the Holocaust,” he told the outlet. “There was no Jewish nation at that time. It didn’t exist. And using that term is anti-Semitic and a misunderstanding of history. ... If he wants to have a conversation about constitutional rights, that’s a discussion we can have, but likening it to genocide is completely erroneous and wrong.”

Washington Governor To Residents: COVID-Test-Deniers Will Not Be Allowed To Leave Home To Get Groceries

By Tyler Durden

At his May 12 press conference, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee laid out the plans for the statewide contact tracing initiative.  “[The initiative] is robust, it is vigorous and it is comprehensive, and it needs to be all three to be successful,” Inslee said. “If we do not succeed in this second stage of our efforts, this virus could come bright back and bite us.” Contact tracing involves interviewing people with positive COVID-19 tests to identify who they’ve been in contact with, getting those people tested and then making sure they isolate themselves and their families. As the press conference went on, one question kept coming up – what about enforcement? How will you ensure residents comply and what if they don’t? The answer is as scary as many have worried about. As Putvin reports, for those businesses/individuals that don’t comply, the governor stated that he confirmed with Attorney General Bob Ferguson, there will be sanctions in civil or criminal court. At timestamp 38:55 in the video of the press conference below, one reporter asked: When it comes to contact tracing, how are you guys going to handle people or families who want to refuse to test or to self isolate? If they want to leave their home to get groceries I know you’ve said they can’t do that; how will you make sure they don’t? Below is Jay Inslee’s response: We will have attached to the families a family support person who will check in with them to see what they need on a daily basis… and help them. If they can’t get a friend to do their grocery shopping, we will help get them groceries in some fashion. If they need pharmaceuticals to be picked up, we will make sure they get their pharmaceuticals… That’s going to help encourage them to maintain their isolation too. As far as refusal, it just shouldn’t come to that, and it really hasn’t. We’ve had really good success when we ask people to isolate, and they’ve done so in really high percentages, so we’re happy about that, and we believe that will continue. Therefore, those individuals who refuse to cooperate with contact tracers and/or refuse testing will not be allowed to leave their homes to purchase basic necessities such as groceries and/or prescriptions.

Those persons will need to make arrangements through friends, family, or a state provided “family support personnel.” The question, of course, is – how long before this “mandated” testing (or starve) will be re-upped to “mandated” vaccination (or starve)? Source: ZeroHedge

Re-Opening the Economy Won't Fix What's Broken

Re-opening a fragile, brittle, bankrupt, hopelessly perverse and corrupt "normal" won't fix what's broken. The stock market is in a frenzy of euphoria at the re-opening of the economy. Too bad the re-opening won't fix what's broken. As I've been noting recently, the real problem is the systemic fragility of the U.S. economy, which has lurched from one new extreme to the next to maintain a thin, brittle veneer of normalcy. Fragile economies cannot survive any impact with reality that disrupts the distortions that are keeping the illusion of "growth" from shattering. For the past two decades, every collision with reality cracked the illusion, and the "fix" was to duct-tape the pieces together with new extremes of money-creation, debt, risk and speculative excess. While the stock market has soared, the real world falls apart. If your region needs a new bridge built, count on about 20 years to get all the "stakeholders" to agree and get the thing actually built. Count on the cost quintupling from $500 million to $2.5 billion. Count on corners being cut as costs skyrocket, so those cheap steel bolts from China that are already rusting before the bridge is even finished? Oops. Replacing them will add millions to the already bloated budget. Want to add a passenger stop on an existing railroad line? Count on 20 years to get it done. The complexity thicket of every regulatory agency with the power to say "no" basically guarantees the project will never get approved, because every one of these bureaucracies justifies its existence by saying "no." Sorry, you need another study, another environmental review, and so on. Need a new landfill? I hope you started the process 15 years ago, so you'll get approval in only five more years. Every agency with the power to say "no" will stretch out the approval, so they have guaranteed "work" for another decade or two.

Did your subway fares double? Was the excuse repairing a crumbling system? Did the work get done on budget and on time? You must be joking, right? All the fare increase did was cover the costs of skyrocketing salaries, pensions and administrative costs. Repairs to the tracks and cars-- that's extra. Let's float a $1 billion bond so nobody have to tighten their belts, and have riders pay for it indirectly, through higher taxes to pay the exorbitant costs of 20 years of interest on the bond.

Have you been thrown off your bicycle by the giant potholes in the city's "bike lanes"? The city reluctantly admits that these streets that haven't been maintained for decades--yes, decades. The city once paid for street maintenance out of its general budget, but alas, that's been eaten up by skyrocketing salaries, pensions and administrative costs, so now we need to float $100 million bond to fund filling potholes. If all goes according to plan (ha-ha), we should be able to re-pave the streets that have been crumbling for 20 years in... the next 20 years. These real-world examples are just four of thousands of manifestations of a broken system. Rather than make tough choices that drain power and wealth from vested interests, we simply borrow more money, in ever increasing amounts, to keep the entrenched interests and elites happy. There are two "solutions" in the status quo: dump the debt on taxpayers or on powerless debt-serfs--for example, college students. (See chart below of the $1.6 trillion that's stripmining student debt-serfs.) Who benefits from selling all the municipal bonds, bundled student loans, etc. to investors starving for a yield above 0.1%? Wall Street, of course.

The problem is that while debt has soared, productivity and earned income have stagnated. The statistical narrative has been ruthlessly gamed to hide the erosion of living standards, but even with the bogus "low inflation" of official statistics, wages for the bottom 95% have stagnated for decades.

Measures of productivity have also been gamed to mask the ugly reality that the vast majority of the U.S. economy is stagnating under the weight of interest payments on debt, mal-investments in speculative gambles, higher junk fees and taxes, crushing regulatory compliance, high costs imposed by monopolies and cartels and a well-cloaked decline in the quality of just about everything the bottom 95% uses or owns. What little productivity gains have been made have been skimmed by the top 5%. Coupled with the Federal Reserve's single-minded goosing of the one signaling device it controls, the stock market, the top 0.1% in America own more wealth than the bottom 80%.

If productivity stagnates and winners take all, the wages of the bottom 95% cannot rise. Real wealth is only created by increases in the productivity of labor and capital; everything else is phantom wealth.

The only way stagnant incomes can support more debt is if interest rates decline. Presto, the Fed dropped interest rates to near-zero a decade ago. Of course you and I can't actually borrow millions for 0.1%; that privilege is reserved for financiers and other financial parasites and predators.  Debt-serfs were able to refinance their crushing mortgages to save a few bucks, and so they can afford to 1) take on more debt and 2) pay higher taxes to fund the ballooning public debt. Every one of these extremes has increased the systemic fragility of the American economy. This fragility is reflected in the impoverishment of the bottom 95%, the thin line between solvency and bankruptcy, the decay of public trust in institutions run for the benefit of entrenched interests, and the quickening erosion of America's social contract. Re-opening a fragile, brittle, bankrupt, hopelessly perverse and corrupt "normal" won't fix what's broken.

[VIDEO] – Thugs LOOT Minneapolis Target, destroy police station during protests over George Floyd’s death…

The Right Scoop

May. 27, 2020 9:07 pm by The Right Scoop • 181 Comments

Apparently some in Minneapolis are so grief stricken, so outraged over George Floyd’s death under the knee of a Minneapolis officer, that they’ve decided looting a Target would make them feel better. They’ve also destroyed the outside of the 3rd precinct police station as well. And here’s what they did to the 3rd precinct police station… You may be wondering where the cops are? Some are on top of the 3rd precinct: Despite how it looks, there were people trying to peacefully protest: Look, I do understand why people would be outraged over Floyd’s death. It was horrible. People should be out peacefully protesting and I’ve got no issue with that whatsoever. But using a protest as an excuse to destroy buildings and loot Target is abominable and thuggish. I hope every last one of these fools are caught by police and punished. There’s just no excuse for it. As an aside, it was reported today that an emergency worker who came to the scene to get Floyd said he didn’t have a pulse when they picked him up. Just awful.

Stuck on Stupid

By Dave Daubenmire|May 28th, 2020

Nothing is as dangerous as stupidity. It is worse than malice. Stupidity is a choice. Malice is inherent. Every day as I adventure outside my humble abode I am immediately struck by the amount of stupidity that I run into. It is almost as if we are stupid on purpose. Stupid comes from the root word stupor, which is defined as “Intellectual insensibility; moral stupidity; heedlessness or inattention to ones interests.” Does “drunken stupor” paint a picture? That, my friends, is descriptive of the average modern American High School graduate. Some college graduates are even worse. It is almost as if the higher up the educational ladder one craws the more stupid he/she becomes. I had a conversion the other day with a recent Law School graduate, a once brilliant, quick witted guy, and at the conclusion of the conversation I asked him; “What happened to you? You used to be really smart. Now you are acting stupid…saying stupid things…ignoring the obvious…who made you so dumb? Where did you lose your ability to think clearly?” That is the purpose of higher education, law school especially. It is designed to make you question EVERYTHING…especially the obvious. Does anyone remember the OJ trial…where most of America sat glued to the boob tube while Johnny Cochran did his best to convince us that the obvious was not really so obvious. You remember…if it doesn’t fit you must acquit. Johnny’s job was not to get to the truth. His job was to get you to question the truth. My buddy My buddy Mark likes to say, Americans are stuck on stupid. Permit me to produce some evidence for you.

Walk into any high school in America and start a discussion as to whether or not Bruce Jenner is a man or a woman. You are guaranteed to leave the classroom with your head spinning as those soon-heading-to-college skulls full of mush deny DNA evidence and build their argument around “feelings.”

Try talking to the average “Joe” on the streets about abortion. No matter how much evidence you produce regarding the FACT that a baby is fully human at the moment of conception you will find yourself in an ancillary debate on whether or not a woman has a “right” to kill her unborn offspring.

The Left loves to use the term “unsettled science” as if science sometimes is inaccurate even though they will never apply such scrutiny to evolution, or “climate change” (as if the climate isn’t constantly changing.) Our education system is designed to make us more stupid through miss education. Fake information. Fake science. Fake experts. Fake facts. Fake diplomas. In fact, parents pay hefty amounts of money to send their children to university where the “dumbing up” becomes even worse.

Hey folks. MASKS DON”T WORK. Watch this. Millions of Americans are wearing them despite the science. You can’t argue with stupid. Just spend 15 minutes watching any “news” program and the “experts” will have you walking in an “educational stupor” before the first commercial break Joe Friday’s lament “just the facts” has been changed to “hide the facts” in today’s rapidly stupidfication of America where emotions and feeling rule the day. I guess the Bible calls us sheep for a reason. But this whole plandemic has taken American stupidity to a whole new level. I am sorry if what I am about to say hurts your feelings, but the truth is, the biggest hoax in American history has just been perpetrated on America. The deception is so bad that it has infected the elderly the worst. If our Senior citizens have lost their ability to reason we have to wonder if there is any hope for America. Our entire country has been locked down by a cadre of “experts” who, no doubt, have PhD’s from some glamorous university somewhere in the halls of Holy Academia. “Trust us”, they say. “We have the propagandized data to prove that we are right.” So we trust them. Day after day, hour after hour, the talking heads spew fear and calamity and the next thing you know you watch your neighbor leave his house, wearing a mask as he takes his two dogs for a walk in the bright sun shine. The only bright light in this whole staged action movie is the fact that, hopefully, America will never be “normal” again. America is sick. America hasn’t been normal for quite some time. Perhaps the “new normal” can be an America where the masses aren’t controlled by the hand-picked “experts” who are given a platform to advance an agenda that has brought us to the precipice of insanity. How did we ever reach the point in this nation where seemingly “normal” people wear a mask, pray for the day where they can take a government-mandated injection, willingly go broke, and dutifully close down our houses of prayer? What caused Americans to be so stupid that they would permit the “experts” the “right” to ruin their lives as they claimed to be saving their lives? This is the same batch of egg-heads that say an unborn baby isn’t human and that there is a spectrum of sexual behaviors that are patently abnormal. Stupid is more dangerous than malice. Stupidity is a choice. It involves rejecting the obvious. A stupid person reaches a decision by ignoring the facts. Will America ever be sane again? Not as long as we are stuck on stupid.

India Is in the Middle of a 47°C Heatwave, a Cyclone, a Global Pandemic, and the Worst Locust Invasion in a Long Time: Collapse Incoming?

By Strange Sounds May 27, 2020

The Indian capital, Delhi, saw temperatures rise to 47.6°C(117.68 f) on Tuesday, as most of north India faced severe heatwave conditions. Now, add to this the dramatic consequences of cyclone Amphan, the global pandemic, and the worst locust invasion in decades… Yes, it’s biblical!

The heatwave, which officials say is likely to last until the weekend, comes even as the region struggles with rising Covid-19 infections and swarms of locusts that are ravaging crops. Churu in Rajasthan state recorded a temperature of 50°C – India’s highest. Officials have warned people to stay indoors as far as possible.

India Is in the Middle of a 47°C Heatwave, a Cyclone, a Global Pandemic, and the Worst Locust Invasion in a Long Time: Collapse Incoming?

By Strange Sounds May 27, 2020

The Indian capital, Delhi, saw temperatures rise to 47.6°C(117.68 f) on Tuesday, as most of north India faced severe heatwave conditions. Now, add to this the dramatic consequences of cyclone Amphan, the global pandemic, and the worst locust invasion in decades… Yes, it’s biblical! The heatwave, which officials say is likely to last until the weekend, comes even as the region struggles with rising Covid-19 infections and swarms of locusts that are ravaging crops. Churu in Rajasthan state recorded a temperature of 50°C – India’s highest. Officials have warned people to stay indoors as far as possible.

The temperatures are the highest that the country has seen in decades for this time of the year. In fact, global weather tracking website El Dorado said the region was the hottest in the world on Tuesday.

Weather officials told local media that part of the reason for the heatwave was the powerful storm – Cyclone Amphan – that struck parts of eastern India and Bangladesh last week.

“Super cyclone Amphan sucked out all the moisture from other parts of the country,” Kuldeep Shrivastava, the head of the regional weather forecasting centre told the Hindustan Times newspaper.

Heat waves in recent years have caused a number of deaths across India. There is still no data about the impact of the current temperatures on people. However, they come even as thousands of migrants are walking on the highways after fleeing cities to try and go back to their villages. Many are walking with little food and water, and will be among the most exposed to the weather. Previously, those who have died have included people like daily-wage labourers, rickshaw operators and vegetable vendors – those most exposed to the sun. In addition to that, the heatwave has affected efforts to combat swarms of locusts that are destroying crops in parts of the country, including Rajasthan.

More than 100 workers are battling the insects, using vehicle-mounted sprayers, pesticides and drones in the searing heat. Heatwave, locust plague, extreme weather… Tribulation unlashes in India… More apocalyptic news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [BBC]

New Zealand sits on the 'largest volcanic outpouring' on Earth, researchers discover

Wed, May 27 • Source: 1 NEWS

A group of geophysicists at Victoria University of Wellington have used seismic wave-speeds to reveal part of an ancient volcanic "superplume" beneath New Zealand. Professor Tim Stern and associate professor Simon Lamb, together with colleagues, believe the North Island sits on part of the "largest volcanic outpouring" on Earth. They say it was created by an upwelling in the Earth’s deep interior - an event which happened about 120 million years ago when a giant plume of hot rock detached itself from the core-mantle boundary about 3000 kilometres below the Earth’s surface and rose rapidly to the surface as "a superplume". Findings from professor Stern and associate professor Lamb, both from the School of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences, has been published today in United States journal Science Advances. The findings come at a time when professor Stern says the geological community had been close to rejecting the idea of plumes altogether. "Direct evidence for their existence has been elusive, but with this study we now have both hard evidence that such plume activity did indeed occur and also a fingerprint method to detect fragments of the largest plumes of all–superplumes–rising up from near the Earth’s core. "In the 1970s, geophysicists proposed that the Earth’s mantle was undergoing a churning motion, rather like a lava lamp, and hot blobs of buoyant rock rose up as plumes from as far as the Earth’s core. Melting of this rock near the surface could then be the cause of prolific volcanism. such as that observed in Iceland or Hawaii," professor Stern says.

"Even larger volcanic outpourings have happened in the geological past, of which the biggest known occurred in the southwestern Pacific in the Cretaceous Period during the time of the dinosaurs, forming a continent-sized underwater volcanic plateau. "Subsequently, the motion of the tectonic plates broke up this plateau, and one fragment– today forming the Hikurangi Plateau—drifted away to the south and now underlies the North Island and also the shallow ocean offshore." Professor Stern and colleagues studied the speed of seismic waves (vibrations) through these rock layers to determine their origins and features.

Satellite Images Confirm Rapid Chinese Military Expansion On Disputed Indian Border

A new report in the Asia-based online tech journal Insider Paper cites open source satellite images to confirm the latest widespread reporting on the major Chinese PLA troop build-up underway along disputed Sino-Indian border regions. The report cites the following via a reputable open-source satellite imagery analyst: According to a few satellite images published by a local Indian news publication, the Chinese troops have commenced the expansion of its airbase, 200 km from Pangong Lake, in Ladakh. The images, also showing Ngari Gunsa airport in Tibet, originated from open-source intelligence expert @detresfa_, an analyst with ShadowBreak Intl. "The first image shows how the territory originally looked. However, the second image clearly shows massive construction activity going on in the territory." According to the report, this suggests a significant and rapid Chinese military build-up in the past months along the contested border region amid what Indian media has widely reported since this weekend to be PLA forces digging into fortified positions. Importantly, the strategic base is a mere 200km away from Pangong lake, where recent skirmishes between Chinese and Indian border patrols took place on May 5th-6th. The Insider Paper report continues, based on satellite analysis: "The expansion has included something that looks more like a secondary tarmac to combat aircraft or taxi-track. Also, the third image shows a line-up of four fighter jets. They are either J-11 or J-16 fighters of the Chinese PLA Air Force." The high altitude airport in Tibet, among the highest in the world, is a dual-use military and civil airport which appears to have undergone major expansion during the same period of increased border skirmishes with Indian troops. Over the past weekend Indian media began reporting that thousands of PLA troops have now moved into Ladakh’s disputed Galwan river area, and at multiple locations in eastern Ladakh. Sporadic but fierce clashes have occurred going back to the 1960's along the shared but pretty much completely unmarked 2,100 mile border, which often involves literal fist-fights among opposing troops and border patrol guards. And The Guardian also said on Wednesday: "Thousands of Chinese People's Liberation (PLA) troops are reported to have moved into sensitive areas along the eastern Ladokh border, setting up tents and stationing vehicles and heavy machinery in what India considers to be its territory." The escalating crisis has grabbed the White House's attention, with President Trump issuing a surprise tweet early Wednesday which said: "We have informed both India and China that the United States is ready, willing and able to mediate or arbitrate their now raging border dispute." It's a fast escalating situation that FP recently noted could explode into major conflict between two nuclear armed powers.

India and China Move In More Troops as Border Tensions Rise

Archana Chaudhary and Sudhi Ranjan Sen

1 day ago

(Bloomberg) -- India has moved additional troops along its northern border as it prepares for an extended conflict with neighbor China, after several rounds of talks failed to ease tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals. China has already placed about 5,000 soldiers and armored vehicles within its side of the disputed border in the Ladakh region, an Indian government official said, asking not to be identified citing rules. India is adding a similar number of troops as well as artillery guns along the border to fend off the continuing incursions by Chinese army, the official said. The standoff began on May 5, when troops clashed on the banks of Pangong Tso -- a glacial lake at 14,000 feet in the Tibetan plateau -- leaving scores of soldiers on both sides injured. Since then there has been a steady build up of troops amid continuing face-offs. India and China on High Alert Over Rising Border Tensions  Diplomats in New Delhi and Beijing have begun talks after negotiations between Indian and Chinese military officials on May 22 and 23 brought no results, the official said. China’s move to step up incursions at two different locations along the 3,488 kilometer (2,167 mile) undemarcated border is a deviation from its earlier attempts to gain territory after the two nations fought a war in 1962, according to the officials. U.S. President Donald Trump said in a tweet Wednesday that he had offered to mediate. There was no immediate response from India or China. Beijing was committed to safeguarding peace and stability in the border areas, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian said in a regular briefing to the media on Wednesday, noting the two countries had good border-related mechanisms and communications channels. “The realization of ‘Dragon and Elephant dancing together’ is the only right choice for China and India, which serves the fundamental interests of our two countries and two peoples,” Sun Weidong, the Chinese ambassador to New Delhi said in an interaction with students according to a statement released on the embassy’s website on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday discussed the stand-off with National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and Chief of Defense Staff General Bipin Rawat and chiefs of its three armed services. The meeting centered around options available to India, and it was decided to go the diplomatic route while maintaining a tough military posture at the border. “Talks are on at various levels to resolve the issue,” said S. L. Naramsimhan, member of India’s National Security Advisory Board, which advises the prime minister’s office. “India will defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity and at the same time make all efforts to maintain peace and tranquility along the India-China boundary.”

Consolidating Power China’s actions along the border coincide with its attempts to consolidate political and strategic positions across Asia. Its decision to introduce new laws in Hong Kong is threatening to worsen already strained ties with the U.S., it has raised tensions in the South China Sea China by disrupting the efforts of Vietnam, the Philippines and Malaysia as they seek to exploit oil, gas and fishing resources off their shores, while Beijing also waged a sustained campaign to prevent Taiwan from rejoining the World Health Organization. The world’s second-largest economy has been facing criticism from the U.S., Europe and Australia for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic that was first reported in China’s Hubei province. China, in turn, has accused the U.S. of pushing the world into a “new Cold War.” The current tensions with India may have been triggered by the completion of a road and bridge in the Galwan sector in Ladakh, the government official said. Under Modi, India has been building border infrastructure, which it says isn’t aimed at any particular country, but rather the development of remote areas. It has completed 74 strategic roads along the eastern border, with plans afoot to finish 20 more by next year. Although Chinese border aggressions rose last year when India changed the status of the Ladakh province in August 2019 to bring it under the control of the federal government, this stand off is more serious than the Doklam conflict in 2017, officials said. “The Chinese have been expanding presence in this region for a long time, yet after all these decades, India hasn’t found a way to deal with China’s gradual expansion,” said Phunchok Stobdan, former Indian diplomat and author of the Great Game in the Buddhist Himalayas. “The issue is why is China doing this and why now?” (Updates with Chinese ambassador’s comment in seventh paragraph)

India is hit by worst plague of locusts for three decades as it sees record number of coronavirus infections

The locusts have already destroyed 125,000 acres of cropland across India

Drones, tractors and cars have been sent out to spray the pests with pesticide

Meanwhile, Indian health ministry officials today reported a total of 145,380 coronavirus infections and a death toll of 4,167

Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

By Ryan Fahey For Mailonline and Afp Published: 14:54 EDT, 26 May 2020 | Updated: 02:17 EDT, 27 May 2020

Huge swarms of desert locusts are destroying crops across western and central India, prompting authorities today to step up their response to the country's worst plague in nearly three decades.

Drones, tractors and cars have been sent out to track the voracious pests and spray them with pesticides. The locusts have already destroyed nearly 125,000 acres of cropland. 'Eight to 10 swarms, each measuring around a square kilometre (0.4 square miles) are active in parts of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh,' the government's Locust Warning Organisation's deputy director K.L. Gurjar told AFP.

The insects caused massive damage to seasonal crops in both states, devastating many farmers already struggling with the impact of a strict coronavirus lockdown. They destroyed harvests in the agricultural heartlands of neighbouring Pakistan in April, before entering Rajasthan. Smaller swarms are also active in a handful of states across India, Gurjar said. A swarm of 40 million locusts can eat as much food as 35,000 people - or six elephants - according to UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation.

Residential areas in the state capital Jaipur were overwhelmed by the insects as bewildered locals banged on pots and pans to try and ward off the insects. Experts warn the situation could worsen with more expected to reach India via Pakistan from the Horn of Africa in June. Heavy rains and cyclones enabled unprecedented breeding and the rapid growth of locust populations on the Arabian peninsula early last year, according to the United Nations. India has not seen locust swarms on this scale since 1993 when it experienced a widespread plague, the warning centre said. Locusts destroy crops in some parts of Rajasthan close to the border with Pakistan most years, but it is rare for the insects to move further into the state. Wind patterns have been pushing the swarms southwest, the locust warning centre said. Coronavirus infections rose by 6,535 in India today, leading the country to become the fourth most affected by the virus worldwide. The South Asian nation now trails only Russia, Brazil and the US on total number of cases. Despite its new ranking, New Delhi has continued to maintain a relatively low death rate. Today health ministry officials reported a total of 145,380 coronavirus infections and a death toll of 4,167. They said that India’s death rate stood at 0.3 deaths per 100,000 people, compared to what they said was a world average of 4.4.

The ‘Vanishing’ Cities – Pandemic Lesson For City Slickers That Are Discovering ‘The Party Is Over’

by Susan Duclos · All News PipeLine  Published May 27, 2020 · Updated May 27, 2020

There appears to be a “great reassessment,” happening to those that live in what is being dubbed the “vanishing” city of New York and surrounding areas. A city that bustled with activity, where everyone was scurrying like rats get where they were going, where rents could reach $4,000-plus on average (a month!!!), where neighbors very rarely even knew each others’ name and where many residents have learned during the COVID-19 pandemic that perhaps, just maybe, city life isn’t exactly what they want anymore. Apparently rural living or at least being away from the hustle and bustle of large cities is becoming much more popular! Who would have thunk it? THE EXODUS HAS BEGUN Granted, there have been cases of COVID-19 that have made their way into the suburbs and rural areas, but as has been reported previously the very nature of smaller cities, towns, villages and counties, where less person-to-person contact buffers the spread, means smaller towns and cities have fared far better than large cities. We, along with others in the Independent Media, like Steve Quayle, have often said, the place you do not want to be during a crisis is where everyone else is. Triple that sentiment when the crisis is a deadly pandemic where the very nature of big, busy cities increases the risk of exposure exponentially. Apparently many living in New York, and other larger jam-packed cities, have discovered this mindset. Mostly because they are being inconvenienced and somehow when a lot of people go unemployed, they finally start realizing that tremendous rents, for small, tiny apartments and spaces, along with everything being more expensive, isn’t really a sustainable lifestyle in a crisis situation. The hour.com recently published a piece first published by Washington Post that manages to capture the desolation, the pandemic lessons, as well as the sense of entitlement by some living in New York who are trying to decide if “city living” is really what they want anymore. Some direct quotes caught my eye, which is rare for a Washington Post piece. The first one is the person Wapo begins the piece with, which shows a sense of entitlement by someone that frankly small towns probably wouldn’t want, because life is much simpler in rural areas. Setting the scene: The woman described had just lost her roommate because she lost her job.

• Shell was so financially strapped that she began inquiring about various night-life gigs, only to see covid-19 close all the bars and clubs. (“So that’s another job you can’t do in a pandemic.”) Still, her situation might have been bearable if the nearest laundromat wasn’t four blocks away. Stopping here for a moment because I have to wonder, did her roomamte’s leaving or the COVID-19 pandemic somehow move the laundromat further from her apartment than when she first moved in? Why is she blaming her current circumstances for the inconvenience of it’s location when she knew where it was before moving in? At least she should have.

“I just want to be able to do laundry without having to drag it up and down a four-story walk-up or pay someone $40 or $50 to do it for me…..” Once again…. did she just realize her apartment was four stories up? What really got caught my eye about this example is how very differently city slickers think than those that live in rural areas.

• “Everyone deserves space and basic amenities,” she said, lamenting how, in New York, many landlords deem a washing machine a “luxury” item. “It’s just insulting to come at us and be like, ‘We’re going to charge you an extra thousand dollars a month for this standard appliance that’s been in American households since the 1970s.’ ” “It’s enough to make her contemplate leaving, for good.”

Not being handed a washing machine for free is enough to make her leave? I am old enough to remember that my Grandmother certainly considered a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher to be “luxuries” and not a “basic amenities.” You get what you pay for. Moving along……….

Even with all the chaos, filth and struggle, nostalgics have long mourned every change in what they called the “vanishing” city. But calls to the city’s mental health hotlines have surged. Whether they have left, or whether they have no option to leave, New Yorkers are having to ask themselves whether the city they love is really still livable. Who in their right minds mourns the loss of “chaos, filth and struggle?” I will tell you who…. people like the next guy quoted who says “I’m a born-and-raised, do-or-die New Yorker because it was always a party, but the party is over.” He’s heading to an unincorporated mountain town in Nevada. “I’m not getting my city back,” he said. “So I’m leaving before it gets to the point that I can’t get my mind back.” Does he think he is going to find his “party” in the unincorporated mountain town in Nevada?

George Floyd Protests Spread: 1000s Block LA Freeway, Minneapolis Ablaze Amid Looting

by Tyler Durden Wed, 05/27/2020 - 20:03

Update (2225ET): Tear gas is flowing in Minneapolis as night 2 of the George Floyd protests begin: Update (22:00ET): The protests that started yesterday in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, and escalated today including the looting of at least one Target store, have sparked a violent anti-police protest in LA with thousands blocking the 101 Freeway and attacking cop cars. And not only are they refusing to obey Governor Newsom's social distancing rules, hardly anyone is wearing a mask! FOX 9 Minneapolis-St. Paul's Karen Scullin is documenting the breaking story: Watch Live: Protests continue in South Minneapolis in response to the death of George Floyd Live at riot in Minneapolis Minnesota On Tuesday night, during the protests in Minneapolis, Biden tweeted: "George Floyd deserved better and his family deserves justice. His life mattered. I'm grateful for the swift action in Minneapolis to fire the officers involved — they must be held responsible for their egregious actions. The FBI should conduct a thorough investigation." Biden was heard on a virtual meeting with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf Wednesday morning, where he addressed the death of George Floyd.

Axios provides a breakdown of what was said (Biden referenced the 2014 death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who died after a New York police officer used an illegal chokehold on him during an arrest): "Watching his life be taken in the same manner, echoing nearly the same words as Eric Garner more than five years ago — “I can’t breathe” — is a tragic reminder that this was not an isolated incident, but part of an ingrained systemic cycle that exists in this country," Biden said.

"It cuts at the very heart of our sacred belief that all Americans are equal in rights and in dignity."

"And it sends a very clear message to the black community and black lives that are under threat every day." High unemployment, crashed economy, and now social unrest rears its ugly head as America descends into chaos ahead of the summer months.

Across social media, pictures and videos coming from the streets of Minneapolis on Tuesday evening are absolutely stunning. Protests broke out following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody a day earlier. This reminds us of the 2014 Ferguson Riots and 2015 Baltimore Riots, in both incidents, the trigger for unrest was a young black man killed while in police custody. Unlike 2014/15, the economy has now plunged into a depression and tens of millions of people are unemployed, as some have to resort to food banks because they've fallen into instant poverty, which all suggests tensions are already running high as warmer weather entices people to step outside. With no work, why not riot? Shown below, police fired rubber bullets, tear gas, and stun grenades at protesters. The initial demonstrations started peacefully than quickly got out of hand. Some hurled blunt objects at law enforcement while damaging police cars. The early hours of the protest were peaceful, hundreds, and maybe even more than a thousand people, were seen marching across 38th Street. Some carried signs that read "Justice for George Floyd," "I can't breathe," and "Black Lives Matter." The size of the demonstration quickly increased in the late evening.

"It's real ugly. The police have to understand that this is the climate they have created," a protester told WCCO-TV.

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota, tweeted: "Shooting rubber bullets and tear gas at unarmed protesters when there are children present should never be tolerated. Ever. What is happening tonight in our city is shameful. Police need to exercise restraint, and our community needs space to heal."

In late March, we described how "social bomb" could flare-up in the Western world, and even reported that President Trump signed an executive order that allows for the call-up of up to a million troops. Why so many soldiers? Well, we're not entirely sure, it could be due to threats of social unrest that are usually seen in economic downturns. Now here's a big risk: If unrest spreads to other cities, like Baltimore, where tensions against police are already high, then it appears the Trump administration has a major problem on their hands ahead of the election.

Pestilence Rising

By Hal Lindsey

When it comes to the coronavirus, we have more questions than answers. But one thing we know for certain — health officials around the world are very much afraid. China normally downplays these kinds of events. But Chinese President Xi Jinping calls this outbreak a “grave situation.” For many Americans, it seemed to hit home when the Shanghai Disneyland closed. The original Disneyland in California has had only two unplanned all-day closures — after the assassination of John Kennedy and after 9-11. Not only did Disney in China close, but so did other regional tourist attractions. Even MacDonald’s and Starbucks closed along with other well-known restaurant chains. As of this writing, there have been 4,100 confirmed cases in China, with at least 106 deaths. 56 million people in China have had their travel restricted. This adds a great deal to people’s fear and anxiety. Residents have said they feel trapped — locked in with a dangerous virus. In much of China, trains are either unoccupied or not running at all. Train and bus terminals are eerily empty. The US State Department is evacuating its personnel from the city of Wuhan. But another thousand Americans live in that city, and they have been told that the United States cannot get them all out of the hot zone. The State Department has issued a travel warning to Americans considering a trip to China. Despite the flight restrictions and intense passenger screening, confirmed cases of the virus have popped up in 13 countries so far. That includes, as of this writing, five confirmed cases in the United States. Five Americans out 327 million may not seem like much. But the point is, it’s here! Then we learned why the passenger screening process has not always been effective. According to China’s health minister, people with the virus may be contagious before they show symptoms. Testing people for fever doesn’t help if they are contagious before they get a fever. Dr. William Schaffner, an adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this would mean “the infection is much more contagious than we originally thought.”  Yes, health officials are afraid. They know that this virus has the potential of becoming a global pandemic. But we’ve heard that before. Do you remember the SARS and MERS viruses? They, too, were coronaviruses and had the potential to ravage the earth. We still don’t have vaccinations against them, but they have largely disappeared. That’s what happens with these kinds of diseases. Even without human intervention, they rise and then they lose strength. The current outbreak may turn out to be even less destructive than SARS or MERS. Or it could be worse. The question is how much damage the disease will do while it is most active. The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and 1919 infected one-third of the world’s population. It killed more Americans than World War I, World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam combined. Jesus said that the last days would be marked by pestilences. Revelation tells about specific pestilences that will arise during the tribulation period. As we get closer to the beginning of the tribulation, the world seems to be primed for a series of massive global pandemics. The ease and speed of global travel is one of the big factors here. The other great danger is the rise of superbugs. Over the last hundred years or so, we humans have been inadvertently developing bacteria, viruses, and fungi that are stronger than anything in history. We call them superbugs because they are resistant to antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungal medications. By the extensive use of such drugs, we have made it so that only the strongest of each species survives. And the strong bugs are increasingly difficult to kill. This is what the UK’s Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, was talking about when she warned of a coming “superbug apocalypse.” Here’s the amazing thing. The Bible predicted this almost two thousand years ago. It’s just another example of something that should be crucially important to everyone. The Bible is true! We can trust it. We can trust its warnings and its promises. Even bleak news like this should remind us that our faith in God and heaven is built on a firm foundation.

Power When You Need It Most

By Hal Lindsey

For a long time now, my name has been associated with events of the end times and the expectation of Christ’s soon return. For years, I have warned about a coming era of plagues and pestilence. I’ve talked about a rising tide of totalitarianism that would manifest itself in the time shortly before Jesus comes back. Now, as we live through the times we knew were coming, let me encourage you. We’re watching a massive plague cover the world. We see the globalists acting fast to use the emergency to their own ends. Many of the things we knew were coming have begun to arrive — though not yet with the intensity the world will see later. So, what’s encouraging about that? First, it tells us about something amazing just on the horizon — the return of Jesus! Signs pointing to the Lord’s return should not make us cower, but lift our heads! The other encouraging thing is this. God has not changed. He does not change. His promises remain true — regardless of the trouble in the world. Jesus was very specific. In Matthew 6:2526, He said, “Do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?” In Isaiah 41:10, God spoke specifically to the people of Israel. But the wording makes it clear that it also applies to those who have been made righteous in Jesus Christ. God said, “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Sadly, there are Christians around the world right now who feel frightened, guilty, and powerless. For them it seems impossible to refrain from fear or from anxiously looking about them. They want to believe that He is their God, but they’re not completely sure of their standing with Him. And it’s all because they don’t understand the last clause of that verse.

Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” They think the upholding of their relationship with God depends on their own righteousness. But in fact, it depends on the strength of His righteous right hand. He does the upholding. Our righteous standing before Him depends on the strength of His righteousness. Verse 13 of that same chapter says, “For I am the Lord your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’Is the message clear? Do not fear. Who upholds us? He does. Who will help us? He will. Then verse 14 says something fascinating. It says, “‘Do not fear, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel; I will help you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.’” He actually refers to Israel as a “worm.” There are several reasons for that designation, but the main one is this. It’s not their righteousness that He’s talking about. He is the Holy One, and it is His holiness that redeems them — and us. So here we stand in the middle of a terrible mess. We hear fearful news on every channel. It’s good to be aware of what’s going on the world, but mostly we need to tune in to God’s channel. Listen to Him. Read His word. Be strong in His strength. Live in His grace!

And as you do that, it becomes easier to obey His command, “Do not fear.”

Netanyahu can finally fire back

Anyone who didn't want to hear Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speak on the opening day of his trial on Sunday shouldn't have started the campaign of character assassination against him that is unparalleled in any democracy.

By Amnon Lord Published on 05-25-2020 13:12 Last modified: 05-25-2020 13:12

On Sunday, we saw what Israeli politics is like at the end of the second decade of the 21st century. In the space of two weeks, two major public events took place in the courts, with political leaders in starring roles. The fateful political struggles can barely be contained within the halls of Jewish sovereignty, the Knesset, and are spilling over to the Supreme Court, and as of Sunday, into the Jerusalem District Court. The politicians, the lawyers, the journalists, and the furious masses are all involved. Some offer comfort by saying there is an arena outside the court and there is the legal arena as it exists in the courtroom, where there are rules and laws and which is detached from the masses outside waving black flags or supporting the prime minister, whose fate is in the hands of the judges. Clearly, there is no detachment. This is not democracy in action, it is democracy that is being shredded. The moment that political life falls into hands that don't know how to make compromises and only know rulings, the public's frustration and outrage bubbles over. Journalists and broadcasters are making the same low-blow mistake of accusing the public of violence that could target the judges, and this is a repeat of what happened during the disengagement from Gaza. Then, too, the big newspapers and TV channels joined hands with certain elements in the security forces, and invented stories about settlers in Kfar Darom and Homesh, saying they had weapons and were prepared to use them, and that the personnel carrying out the evacuations would not hesitate to "neutralize" them. All this came after a solid year of a violent campaign against the settlers in the Gaza Strip and northern Samaria, a campaign that ended with a painful uprooting. The same thing is happening with Prime Minister Netanyahu. For 25 years, a campaign of character assassination has been waged against him, the like of which has never been seen in any democracy, and that campaign has turned especially brutal in the last four years. It isn't one particular speech or another, but rather daily and weekly leaks designed to shape public opinion and awaken hatred until it boils over. This isn't about the public's right to know, but rather the technique that is being exposed in the US right now after the (not final) exoneration of Gen. Michael Flynn. In the US there are checks and balances, and in the end, there is oversight and transparency and it is possible to follow how the leaders of the Obama administration, along with the FBI and the famous columnists, stitched up a respected general and ruined his life, to the point where he admitted to acts he didn't commit. So now Netanyahu is in a position to return fire. Anyone who didn't want to listen to his speech at the entrance to the court on Sunday shouldn't have started staging this production in the first place. Right now, the only way out of this political-legal tangle is for the prime minister to show faith in the judges and do his best, along with his lawyers, to prove that the accusations against him do not comprise criminal acts.

US ends sanctions waivers for nations in Iran nuclear deal

Pompeo announces he will be ending the sanctions waiver for projects related to the Iranian nuclear agreement, effective in 60 days.

Elad Benari , 27/05/20 23:34

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Wednesday that he would be ending the sanctions waiver for projects related to the Iranian nuclear agreement, effective in 60 days. “Iran’s continued nuclear escalation makes clear this cooperation must end. Further attempts at nuclear extortion will only bring greater pressure on the regime,” he tweeted. “I am also sanctioning two leaders of Iran’s nuclear enrichment program - Majid Agha’i and Amjad Sazgar. Iran’s scientists need to make a choice: pursue peaceful work outside of the proliferation realm, or risk being sanctioned,” continued Pompeo.  US President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers in May of 2018. Since then, his administration has reimposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic that were frozen as part of the pact. In response, Iran has gradually scaled back its compliance with the 2015 deal. In December, the deputy head of Iran’s nuclear agency, Ali Asghar Zarean, said his country would unveil a new generation of domestically made uranium enrichment centrifuges.

Hezbollah's Nasrallah warns of 'great war' on all fronts with Israel

Nasrallah warned that any Israeli air strike on Lebanon would 'not pass without a response,' adding that the terror group has 'military capabilities that did not exist before 2006.'

By TZVI JOFFRE MAY 27, 2020 14:52

Marking 20 years since Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah warned Israel of "the great war that will open all fronts at once," saying that it would be "the end of Israel." The Hezbollah leader stressed, however, that there are "no indications that Israel intends to launch a war against Lebanon."

The statements were made during an interview with the Al-Nour Radio Station on Tuesday night, which was broadcast by the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar TV Channel. Nasrallah warned that any Israeli air strike on Lebanon would "not pass without a response," adding that the terror group has "military capabilities that did not exist before 2006" and would respond if any Hezbollah terrorist was killed anywhere. In reference to an airstrike on a Hezbollah vehicle along the Lebanon-Syria border a few weeks ago, Nasrallah stressed that Israel did not make a mistake in the strike and was not trying to kill the terrorists in the vehicle, because they knew that Hezbollah would respond if the terrorists were killed. In possible reference to a series of airstrikes in recent years on Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria which were blamed on Israel, Nasrallah stated that while the Syrian leadership believes that it is not in the country's interest to be drawn into a war with Israel, the "patience and endurance of the Syrian leadership with Israeli aggression has limits." Nasrallah also referred to a drone attack in the suburbs of Beirut last year that was blamed on Israel, saying that such an operation has not been repeated since and warning that Israeli aircraft in Lebanese airspace would be shot down.  Sightings of Israeli aircraft are reported in Lebanese airspace by local media on a weekly, if not daily, basis. A couple of quadcopters have been shot down near the border, but larger aircraft have reportedly flown in the airspace undamaged, with claims that air strikes on Syria have been carried out by Israeli aircraft from Lebanese airspace. Both Hezbollah and Israel have the ability to initiate a conflict, said Nasrallah, but the balance of power created by the terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon takes into account a number of calculations, preventing a conflict at present.  "The Israeli enemy did not target us at the beginning, and it was providing support to the Syrian armed groups, not all the opposition,” he said, deeming that "Israel’s venturing into a battle between the wars in Syria was a victory for the axis of the resistance, and this is what made the Israeli resort to air strikes." Nasrallah rejected calls for Hezbollah to surrender its weapons, asking those calling for such a measure to look at the "state of deterrence, a deterrence that is the protector of Lebanon," and asking anyone with a better method to state it. he claimed that the "level of support for the choice of resistance among the Palestinian people is higher than ever." In Lebanon, however, Nasrallah admitted that "there was never national unity around the resistance in order to say that it once had a wide audience that it had lost. Even in 2000, the internal situation was not better than today." The secretary-general added that some Lebanese people believe Hezbollah is connected with Syria and Iran and isn't a Lebanese group at all. Nasrallah insisted that Hezbollah is not trying to get the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon to leave the country, but questioned why Israel does not have any UNIFIL forces on its side of the Blue Line. Prime Minister Hassan Diab; Minister of Defense and Deputy Prime Minister Zeina Akar; and Commander of the Lebanese Armed Forces Gen. Joseph Aoun are expected to visit UNIFIL headquarters in Naqoura amid heightened tensions along the border with Israel, according to Lebanon's National News Agency. An investigation into the shooting of a Syrian national by IDF troops after he infiltrated into Israeli territory near Mount Dov last week was completed by a joint Lebanese and UNIFIL investigation team. According to Lebanon’s National News Agency, the probe of the shooting will be submitted during the upcoming tripartite meeting chaired by UNIFIL.

Nasrallah also discussed domestic issues, stressing that corruption must be addressed by the judiciary and warning that sectarian divides in the country must also be addressed.

Special Report: U.S. takes aim at the power behind Venezuela's Maduro - his first lady

Angus Berwick, Matt Spetalnick

25 Min Read

CARACAS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Four years ago, a bit player in the Venezuelan leadership was arrested in Colombia and extradited to the United States to face drug charges. He proved to be an important catch. The man, Yazenky Lamas, worked as a bodyguard for the person widely considered the power behind President Nicolas Maduro’s throne: first lady Cilia Flores. Now, with help from Lamas’ testimony, the United States is preparing to charge Flores in coming months with crimes that could include drug trafficking and corruption, four people familiar with the investigation of the first lady told Reuters. If Washington goes ahead with an indictment, these people said, the charges are likely to stem, at least in part, from a thwarted cocaine transaction that has already landed two of Flores’ nephews in a Florida penitentiary. Nicole Navas, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Justice, declined to comment on any possible charges against Flores. Flores and her office at the National Assembly didn’t respond to questions for this article. Jorge Rodriguez, Venezuela’s information minister, told Reuters in a text message that its questions about the possible U.S. indictment of Flores were “nauseating, slanderous and offensive.” He didn’t elaborate. In a series of interviews with Reuters, the first Lamas has given since his arrest, the former bodyguard said Flores was aware of the coke-trafficking racket for which her two nephews were convicted by a U.S. court. Flores also used her privileged position, he said, to reward family members with prominent and well-paid positions in government, a claim of nepotism backed by others interviewed for this article. Speaking behind reinforced glass at the prison in Washington, D.C., where he is detained, Lamas told Reuters he is speaking out against Flores because he feels abandoned by the Maduro administration, still ensconced in power even though many of its central figures, including the president, have also been accused of crimes. “I feel betrayed by them,” he told Reuters. In late March, U.S. prosecutors indicted Maduro and over a dozen current and former Venezuelan officials on charges of narco-terrorism and drug smuggling. Maduro, now in his eighth year as Venezuela’s president, for years sought to flood the U.S. with cocaine, prosecutors alleged, seeking to weaken American society and bolster his position and wealth. Maduro’s office didn’t respond to requests for comment. In a televised speech after the indictments, he dismissed the charges against him and his colleagues as a politically motivated fabrication by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. “You are a miserable person, Donald Trump,” he said. The March indictments and the possible charges against Flores come amid a fresh campaign by Washington to increase pressure on Maduro. His enduring grip on power, some U.S. officials say, is a source of frustration for Trump. Starting in 2017, the U.S. Treasury Department sanctioned the Socialist leader along with his wife and other members of the Maduro “inner circle.” The swipe at Flores enraged Maduro. “If you want to attack me, attack me,” he said in a televised speech at the time. “But don’t mess with Cilia, don’t mess with the family.” Leveraging the economic fallout from the coronavirus crisis in Venezuela, the White House now hopes it can topple a leader who has weathered years of tightening economic sanctions, civil unrest and international isolation.  Washington has accused Maduro and his circle of looting Venezuela of billions of dollars. But it’s unclear how much personal wealth he and Flores possess. Neither the president nor the first lady disclose income statements, tax returns or other documents pertaining to their personal finances.   After U.S. prosecutors charged Maduro, the Justice Department said it had seized more than $1 billion in assets belonging to dozens of defendants connected to the case. The charges didn’t detail those assets or specify who holds them. Flores is a longtime strategist and kingmaker in the ruling Socialist party. She first gained prominence as a lawmaker and confidante of the late Hugo Chavez, Maduro’s predecessor and mentor. She doesn’t hold an official role in Maduro’s cabinet. Still, the probe against her underscores the vast influence she wields, particularly in helping Maduro outmaneuver rivals inside and outside Venezuela. In addition to Lamas, Reuters interviewed more than 20 people close to and familiar with Flores. They portray her as a shrewd and stealthy politician who now brandishes much of the power of her husband’s office, demanding important briefings even before the president and personally negotiating with foreign emissaries, rival lawmakers and others. When the opposition-led National Assembly tried to oust Maduro last year, Flores ordered security officials to deliver intelligence on the matter directly to her, according to Manuel Cristopher Figuera, the head of the country’s intelligence agency then. Figuera was one of a handful of senior Venezuelan officials who at the time considered trying to negotiate an exit from power by Maduro with the United States. Figuera fled Venezuela when the effort failed. “Flores has always been behind the curtain, pulling the strings,” Figuera told Reuters. Flores has sought personal concessions in recent years in negotiations with the United States. According to five people familiar with the discussions, Flores instructed intermediaries to ask U.S. envoys for liberty for her jailed nephews. In exchange, these intermediaries said Venezuela would release six imprisoned executives of Citgo Petroleum Corp [PDVSAC.UL], the U.S. refining unit of Venezuela’s state-run oil company. The executives, arrested by Venezuela in 2017 and charged with embezzlement, are widely considered by human rights activists and many in the business community to be political prisoners. That overture, reported here for the first time, failed.  But Washington knows Flores’ clout. “She is probably the most influential figure other than Maduro,” Fernando Cutz, a senior White House adviser on Latin America during Trump’s first year in office, told Reuters. Earlier this year, according to people with knowledge of her efforts, Flores personally pressed crucial opposition lawmakers to support a Maduro ally to head the National Assembly, until then considered the last independent government institution in the country. As Reuters reported in March, people familiar with lobbying of the lawmakers say ruling party operatives paid bribes to rivals who switched sides. Reuters couldn’t determine whether Flores played any role in such payments. Little is known about the first lady outside Venezuela, particularly the extent of her role in Maduro’s government and her dealings that help it survive. In their first interrogation of Lamas after his arrest in Colombia, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents had one request, he recalled: “Tell us about Cilia Flores,” they said. Michael D. Miller, a DEA spokesman, referred questions regarding the case to the Justice Department. Lamas, now 40, spent over a decade guarding Flores – first when she was a lawmaker and headed the National Assembly, later when she became first lady. After his extradition in 2017, Lamas agreed to a plea deal with U.S. prosecutors, according to a confidential Justice Department document reviewed by Reuters. The agreement hasn’t been previously reported. In the plea deal, Lamas admitted to charges of drug trafficking and agreed to cooperate as a witness in investigations related to his case. The Colombian court order that approved his extradition, also reviewed by Reuters, said Lamas conspired to ship cocaine from Venezuela on U.S.-registered aircraft. Neither the Colombian court order nor the Justice Department document mention Flores, Maduro or others in the family. Because of the terms of the plea agreement – he said he is still awaiting sentencing and continues to testify in related investigations – Lamas declined to discuss specifics about the case against him. His lawyer in Washington, Carmen Hernandez, also declined to comment. The information he is providing investigators, including details on Flores’ alleged role in the drug-trafficking plan by her nephews, is deemed credible by U.S. authorities, according to people familiar with the probes. Mike Vigil, a former DEA chief of international operations, told Reuters the DEA gives “high significance” to Lamas’ testimony. “REVOLUTIONARY CALLING” Flores was born October 15, 1956, in Tinaquillo, a small city in northwestern Venezuela. The youngest of six siblings, she lived in a mud-brick shack with a dirt floor, locals recall. Her father was a salesman, traveling to nearby towns to hawk sundry goods. While still a child, she and her family moved to Caracas, Venezuela’s capital. A good pupil, Flores enrolled in a private university and studied criminal law. There, she met Maikel Moreno, a lifelong friend and a lawyer she would eventually help become Venezuela’s chief justice. Moreno, a Maduro ally and a controversial figure in his own right, was one of those indicted by Washington last March. Moreno didn’t respond to requests for comment; in a tweet, he denounced Washington for trying to “hijack Venezuelan justice.” As a student, Flores showed little interest in politics, according to people who knew her. She worked part-time at a police station, transcribing statements from witnesses, and married a longtime boyfriend, a police detective, with whom she had three boys. Upon earning her law degree, she worked for most of the next decade as a defense attorney for a private firm. In 1989, a fuel hike sparked riots that shook Caracas and awakened in Flores what she later described to state television as a “revolutionary calling.” Hundreds of protesters, angry with corruption and widening inequality in the oil-producing country, died in clashes with security forces. The event, known as the Caracazo – roughly, the big Caracas awakening – also inspired Chavez. As inflation, food shortages and other hardships worsened, Chavez, an Army lieutenant colonel, in 1992 staged a failed coup. He was arrested and jailed at a military barracks. Flores discovered a hero. She took to spraypainting Chavez’s name around Caracas. “I saw him in that moment as I would in the 20 years I spent near him,” she later told state television. “Authentic.” She sent Chavez a letter offering to aid his defense. He accepted. Soon she was counseling Chavez and helping him answer letters from thousands of supporters.  On one early visit, she met a Caracas union leader who was also advising Chavez: Maduro. In a televised speech years later, Maduro said he was drawn to her “fiery character.” He began to wink at her, he said. As it happened, both were divorcing their spouses. They began dating and eventually became a couple. “We shared the same dreams,” Flores later told state television. In 1994, Chavez received a presidential pardon. Flores and other advisors suggested he reinvent himself as a civilian and rally support with promises to empower the poor. By 1997, Flores was part of the campaign committee that would secure Chavez’s election the next year as president. Maduro was elected as a legislator. Not much of a gladhander herself, Flores nonetheless won a seat in the National Assembly in 2000. “She’s not a leader to hold a political rally,” said Juan Barreto, a former Caracas mayor and media director for Chavez. “But don’t think she doesn’t have a voice behind closed doors.” In the legislature, Flores earned a combative reputation. When fellow Chavistas elected her leader of the National Assembly in 2007, she publicly referred to opposition lawmakers as “sinners,” suggesting the government had the moral high ground over its rivals. She switched off their microphones when she felt they grew longwinded. She also began using her position to help family members. Flores replaced about 50 support staff employed by the National Assembly with relatives and associates, the legislature’s union said. Four siblings, two cousins and her ex-husband were among the hires, according to a list created by the union at the time of the shakeup and recently reviewed by Reuters.  She named her brother, a policeman, head of assembly security. A nephew – a cousin of her two nephews now jailed in the United States – was appointed as the legislature’s administrative director.  Reuters was unable to reach Flores’ siblings, her ex-husband, or other relatives mentioned in this story, including her children and her nephews. It’s unclear whether Flores was responsible for all the job changes the union complained about. But she has defiantly defended the appointments. “I feel proud that they are my family,” she told reporters at the time. “I will defend them as workers in the assembly.” When union leaders complained about nepotism, Flores summoned them to her office, recalls Jose Rivero, who attended some of those meetings and is now the union boss. “Leave this issue alone,” he says she told them. The union complied. In 2012, Chavez named Flores attorney general. She held the post until March 2013, when Chavez died. Voters elected Maduro, by then vice president, to succeed him. Maduro and Flores, not officially married, tied the knot that July. As first lady, Flores initially made her presence known in small ways. She ordered new furniture, curtains and a repainting of the Miraflores Palace, former aides said. Soon, she began playing a far more substantial role.  In 2014, oil prices plunged, pulling Venezuela into depression. As discontent grew, Flores began to see threats within the government. In October, Maduro fired Miguel Rodriguez, his interior minister, and replaced him with a Flores ally. Three people familiar with the decision said that Flores believed Rodriguez, a charismatic general popular with troops, was eclipsing Maduro. People close to Rodriguez said he had indeed aspired to higher office. After his ouster, Rodriguez formed a rival political party and publicly denounced Maduro. Intelligence agents later arrested Rodriguez on conspiracy charges, which he denied. He remains imprisoned. Juan Luis Sosa, an attorney for Rodriguez, declined to comment. “Cilia likes or hates you,” one former Maduro aide says. “She’s not a dealmaker, she’s a hardliner.” “CILIA KNEW EVERYTHING” Lamas, the bodyguard, began working for Flores in her days as a legislator. From a post in the National Guard, he had been assigned to Chavez’s security detail and later transferred to guard Flores, he said. A photo on Lamas’ Twitter feed shows him, in a revolutionary red baseball cap, with Flores at a Socialist party event in 2010. With the job came proximity to the Flores family. The first lady entrusted him with driving her aging mother for medical checkups, Lamas said. He became close to Flores’ sons – Walter, Yoswal and Yosser. “I considered them my brothers,” he said, recalling trips to shoot rifles and to opulent family properties on the Caribbean coast. The brothers – known as “Los Chamos,” or “the boys” – have attracted media attention in Venezuela for their flashy lifestyles. Lamas said he saw them use government jets to travel abroad for fun. He also said he saw them several times late at night load military jeeps with boxes of U.S. dollars and transport the cash from their homes in Caracas to other locations for storage. Reuters couldn’t independently verify that claim. Flores’ sons haven’t been indicted on any charges in the United States. They are on the U.S. Treasury’s list of Venezuelans sanctioned for alleged corruption. The sanctions are meant to punish central figures in Maduro’s government and block any assets they may have in the United States or within its jurisdiction. The family’s reach by this point was manifest at Petroleos de Venezuela SA, or PDVSA [PDVSA.UL], the national oil company and the government’s cash cow. In 2014, PDVSA appointed a new finance director: Carlos Malpica, the third nephew of Flores, who previously managed the support staff at the National Assembly. Malpica couldn’t be reached for comment. People close to Flores said Malpica had become the first lady’s most trusted relative, especially when it came to financial matters. Documents compiled by U.S. investigators for their case against the other two Flores nephews provide insight into Malpica’s influence. In August 2015, according to text messages gathered by the investigators and transcribed in documents used at the trial, Efrain Campo, one of the two nephews, received a text from an acquaintance. The message asked for Campo’s help in recouping money allegedly owed by PDVSA to the acquaintance. The origins of the debt are unclear. Campo told the acquaintance to call Malpica. At PDVSA, Campo wrote, Malpica was the “maximum authority there, since he’s a Flores.” “He will not do it for free,” Campo added. PDVSA officials didn’t respond to a request for comment. Malpica left his PDVSA post in 2016, giving no explanation for his departure, and has since kept a low profile. The U.S. Treasury Department would later include him on its list of Venezuelans sanctioned for alleged corruption. The jailed nephews, Campo and Franqui Flores, were close to the first lady. She helped raise both of them, two people who know the family told Reuters, and both men sometimes referred to her as “mom.” Their November 2015 arrest, in a DEA sting in Haiti, made international headlines. In Venezuela, it earned the pair the nickname of the “narcosobrinos,” or “narconephews.” The bust stemmed from a plan to sell $20 million worth of cocaine in the United States. The men, who pleaded not guilty, were convicted and sentenced to 18 years in prison. At the time, Flores told reporters that her nephews had been victims of a DEA “kidnapping.” She has since said little publicly about the case. Among evidence investigators obtained, according to two people familiar with the case, are text messages between the nephews and Flores in which the trio allegedly discuss the cocaine shipment. The messages, which haven’t been seen by Reuters, are among documentation compiled by prosecutors from the U.S. investigation of the nephews. The people familiar with the messages said they make clear that Flores helped coordinate logistics of the cocaine shipment with them. The proceeds from the coke deal were meant to finance a Flores campaign for the National Assembly in 2015, according to the U.S. indictment against Maduro. The people familiar with the text messages said the nephews told Flores in the texts that the cocaine money would be for her campaign. Flores had briefly left the assembly when she became attorney general, and in 2015 she was reelected. A recording made by a DEA informant captured the two nephews discussing the planned deal, according to a transcript submitted as evidence in their trial. In the recording, Campo says his “mom” is planning to run again for the assembly. People familiar with the probe believe “mom,” given the context of the discussion, meant Flores. Because of the burgeoning economic crisis and growing discontent at the time, Campo told the informant, “there is a risk we could lose, so she’s getting in there again.” “We need the money,” Campo added, in a remark investigators interpreted as an allusion to the impact of economic sanctions on Socialist coffers. “The Americans are hitting us hard, and the opposition is getting a lot of help.” Before the two nephews were arrested, Lamas said he saw the two men on several occasions send cocaine shipments on planes from the presidential hangar outside Caracas. Reuters couldn’t verify whether Flores knew of the alleged shipments. At times, Lamas said, Flores would hear relatives discuss illicit activities, including her nephews talking about the drug transaction for which they were convicted. She would shake her head, he added, but not voice disapproval. “Cilia knew everything,” Lamas says. A GRAND BARGAIN In Caracas, where political intrigue abounds, Flores has covered Maduro’s flanks. Early last year, Juan Guaidó, head of the National Assembly, declared Maduro’s 2018 re-election a fraud and said he was the rightful president of Venezuela. He urged the military to oust Maduro. Flores quickly sought out signs of disloyalty within government ranks. Figuera, the former intelligence chief, told Reuters she ordered all documentation his agents collected about any additional dissent, including transcripts of phone taps of opposition politicians, sent directly to her. He complied. In March 2019, a nationwide electricity blackout darkened Venezuela. As senior officials convened to discuss the problem, one minister showed Twitter posts by Luis Carlos Diaz, a prominent journalist, blaming the government. Flores said Diaz “should be jailed,” Figuera told Reuters. Maduro afterwards ordered him to arrest the journalist, Figuera added.

As Diaz bicycled home on March 11, Figuera’s agents arrested him, raided his home and seized computers and phones. After an uproar, Figuera said, Maduro called him the following day to order Diaz’s release. Diaz, who was let out, remains free and is working as a journalist. He declined to comment. By April of last year, as most Western democracies backed Guaidó, Figuera and a handful of other senior officials began considering a negotiated exit for Maduro. They weighed the possibility of arranging safe passage for Maduro to Cuba or another allied country, Figuera said, in exchange for the easing of U.S. sanctions or other compromises by Washington. Among the officials who discussed the idea was Moreno, the chief justice and longtime Flores friend, according to Figuera and two other people familiar with the talks. As the group prepared to discuss the possibility with U.S. envoys, Moreno told Figuera they should press for further concessions, including the release of Flores’ two nephews.  The suggestion of seeking the nephews’ freedom as part of a grand bargain with Washington followed attempts months earlier by Flores intermediaries to secure their release. According to the people familiar with those earlier discussions, Flores had intermediaries tell Washington early last year that Caracas, in exchange for the nephews, would free the six Citgo executives. Venezuela had charged the executives, who remain in prison awaiting trial, with embezzlement related to renegotiation of Citgo’s debt with various lenders. Attorneys for the executives told Reuters the charges are baseless and that they were unaware of any effort to include their clients in any prisoner swap. Jesus Loreto, a Caracas lawyer representing Tomeu Vadell, one of the six, said such an offer “would be yet more evidence of the arbitrary nature” of the arrests. A senior Trump administration official told Reuters the swap offer was a “non-starter.” “This isn’t like a spy exchange with Russia,” said another American familiar with the discussions. “The nephews are convicted criminals.” Reuters couldn’t determine whether Flores was aware of Moreno’s attempts to broker a departure for Maduro. Moreno ultimately backed out of the talks, according to Figuera and the two other people. The effort fizzled and Figuera defected. He now lives in Miami. Moreno remains chief justice of Venezuela. Late last year, Flores spearheaded the effort to swing opposition legislators toward a Maduro ally as assembly head. On December 7, Flores and several Maduro aides met with a group of opposition lawmakers at the Fuerte Tiuna military base in Caracas, people with knowledge of the meeting said. There, Flores urged the lawmakers to back the Maduro candidate. Several lawmakers, including at least one who attended that meeting, later accepted payments of up to $150,000 to vote for Maduro’s candidate, these people said. Reuters couldn’t determine if Flores or Maduro were aware of the payments or whether they were discussed at the military base. In January, Luis Parra, the government candidate, won the election for assembly chief. Now, Guaidó and Parra both claim to be running the assembly. Parra’s office didn’t respond to a request for comment. From his cell in Washington, Lamas reads about politics back home. He is studying English and working as a prison cook. He showed Reuters a certificate from the prison commending his “outstanding contribution to the culinary department.” Lamas now seethes against the family he once worked to protect. He is particularly aggrieved by a raid on his house in the days after his arrest, and a long interrogation of his wife, with whom he has two small children. A neighbor confirmed seeing the raid take place. “I was loyal to them,” Lamas says. “But they weren’t loyal to me.”

The Coming Nuclear Menace: Hypersonic Missiles

by Karl Grossman  May 18, 2020

The United States is seeking to acquire “volumes of hundreds or even thousands” of nuclear-capable hypersonic missiles that are “stealthy” and can fly undetected at 3,600 miles per hour, five times faster than the speed of sound. Why so many? A Pentagon official is quoted in the current issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology as saying “we have to be careful we’re not building boutique weapons. If we build boutique weapons, we won’t—we’ll be very reluctant to—use them.”

The article in the aerospace industry trade journal is headlined: “Hypersonic Mass Production.” A subhead reads: “Pentagon Forms Hypersonic Industry ‘War Room.’”

On March 19, 2020, the U.S. conducted its first hypersonic missile test from its Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai, Hawaii. “Fast and Furiously Accurate” is the title of an article about hypersonic missiles written by a U.S. Navy officer which appeared last year on a U.S. Naval Institute website. The piece declares that by “specifically integrating hypersonic weapons with U.S. Navy submarines, the United States may gain an edge in developing the fastest, most precise weapons the world has ever seen.” “Hypersonic weapons,” explains the article by U.S. Navy Lieutenant Andrea Howard, “travel faster than Mach 5—at least five times the speed of sound, around 3,600 mph, or one mile per second….They are similar to but faster than existing missiles, such as the subsonic U.S. Tomahawk missile, which maxes out around 550 mph.” “While hypersonic weapons can carry conventional or nuclear warheads, they differ from existing technologies in three critical ways,” writes Howard. “First…a one-kilogram object delivered precisely and traveling multiples of the speed of sound can be more destructive than one kilogram of TNT. Second, the low-altitude path helps mask HCMs [Hypersonic Cruise Missiles] when coupled with the curvature of the Earth” and so “they are mostly invisible to early warning radars. And third…they can maneuver during flight; in contrast with the predictable ballistic-missile descend, they are more difficult to intercept, if even detected.” “By offering the precision of near-zero-miss weapons, the speed of ballistic missiles, and the maneuverability of cruise missiles, hypersonic weapons are a disruptive technology capable of striking anywhere on the globe in less than an hour,” declares the Navy officer. The article also notes that Russian “President Vladimir Putin unveiled six new” what he called “invincible” hypersonic missiles as part of a March 2018 “state of the nation” speech. “Russia has successfully tested the air-to-ground hypersonic missile” named Kinzhal for dagger, “multiple times using the MIG-31 fighter.” It’s “mounting the Kinzhal on its Tu-22M3 strategic bomber.” The article also says “China, too, is working on hypersonic technologies.”

The piece concludes: “As the tradition of arms control weakens with the breakdown of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) agreement, it would be naïve to anticipate anything other than full-fledged weapon development by Russia and China in the coming decades….The bottom line is that hypersonic weapons will determine who precisely is ‘prompt’ enough in 21st century conflict.”  The U.S. under President Trump withdrew last year from the INF treaty, a landmark agreement which had banned all land-based ballistic and cruise missiles with ranges of from 310 to 3,420 miles. It had been signed in 1987 by President Reagan and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev. The treaty “marked the first time the superpowers had agreed to reduce their nuclear arsenals, eliminate an entire category of nuclear weapons, and employ extensive on-site inspections for verification,” notes the Arms Control Association. “Hypersonic missiles may be unstoppable. Is society ready?” was the headline of an article in March in The Christian Science Monitor. This piece notes: “Hypersonic missiles are not just very fast, they are maneuverable and stealthy. This combination of speed and furtiveness means they can surprise an adversary in ways that conventional missiles cannot, while also evading radar detection. And they have injected an additional level of risk and ambiguity into what was already an accelerating arms race between nuclear-armed rivals.” The article raises the issue of the speed of hypersonic missiles miring military decisions. “For an incoming conventional missile, military commanders may have 30 minutes to detect and respond; a hypersonic missile could arrive at that same destination in 10 minutes.” Thus “artificial intelligence” or “AI” would be utilized. The Christian Science Monitor article quotes Patrick Lin, a professor of philosophy at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, as noting: “Technology will always fail. That is the nature of technology.” And, says the article: “Dr. Lin argues that the benefits of hypersonic weapons compared to the risk they create are ‘widely unclear,’ as well as the benefits of the AI systems that inform them.” It quotes Dr. Lin as saying, wisely: “I think it’s important to remember that diplomacy works and policy solutions work…I think another tool in our toolbox isn’t just to invest in more weapons, but it’s also to invest in diplomacy to develop community.” The Aviation Week & Space Technology article begins: “As the U.S. hypersonic weapons strategy tilts toward valuing a quantity approach, the new focus for top defense planners—even as a four-year battery of flight testing begins—is to create an industrial base that can produce missiles affordably enough that the high-speed weapons can be purchased in volumes of hundreds or even thousands.” It continues: “To pave the way for an affordable production strategy, the Pentagon’s Research and Engineering division has teamed up with the Acquisition and Sustainment branch to create a ‘war room’ for the hypersonic industrial base, says Mark Lewis, director of research and engineering the modernization.” The piece then quotes Lewis as saying: “At the end of the day, we have to be careful we’re not building boutique weapons. If we build boutique weapons, we won’t—we’ll be very reluctant to—use them. And that again factors into our plans for delivering hypersonics at scale.” The article says that “Air Force and defense officials have been promoting concepts for operating air-launched hypersonic missiles in swarm attacks. The B-1B [bomber], for example, will be modified to carry” six hypersonic missiles. “I think it’s a poorly posed question to ask about affordability per unit,” the piece quoted Lewis as saying. “We have to think of it in terms of the affordability of the capability that we’re providing. By that I mean: If I’ve got a hypersonic system that costs twice as much as its subsonic counterpart but is five times more effective, well, clearly, that’s an advantageous cost scenario.” The hypersonic missiles will indeed likely be “invincible.” And they would be at the ready because of the withdrawal by the Trump administration of the INF treaty and other international arms control agreements, one after another. With the vast numbers of hypersonic nuclear-capable missiles being sought, the world will have fully returned to the madness in the depths the Cold War—as presented in the 1964 film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Apocalypse will be highly likely. Artificial intelligence is not going to save us. These weapons need to be outlawed, not produced and purchased en masse. And we must, indeed, “invest in diplomacy to develop community”—a global community at peace, not a world of horrific and unstoppable war. Join the debate on Facebook More articles by:Karl Grossman

SELCO: Types Of Real Survivalists —The Slaves And Servants Were The Most Common

In the following article, Selco of SHTF Schooldelves even further, detailing real-life scenarios, training tactics, and other key information that will undoubtedly help save your life should the streets of America turn into a war zone. Pay attention because this no idealized collapse scenario – it’s reality. Selco is from the Balkan region, where from 92 to 95 the Bosnian War destroyed everything and for 1 whole year he lived and survived in a city without electricity, fuel, running water, real food distribution, or distribution of any goods, or any kind of organized law or government. Drug dealers, prostitutes, thieves, addicts, homeless, family people, believers… good people, bad people… we like to call people names in order to judge them and live our life easier. Most of the time we judge them so easily and form our opinion about them „as we go“ without too many thoughts. It is easier like that. We see people doing something and think they do it because of how they are. We often do not consider all the things that make them do what they do. We see something, give that a name and that’s it. Sometimes there is much more to what we actually can see. Someone who is bad might just have had circumstances in life and being like that is the only thing that made sense for that person. Yes, their whole way of thinking might be “wrong” or he might not act badly because he is a bad person, but because their kids are dying. People simply judge too fast. More from our blog: Post SHTF: Who Do You Let In And Who Gets The Boot? Post SHTF: What Will You Do When They Come? How Much Can You Give Away Before Putting Your Own Family In Danger? Not to mention that when SHTF it is dangerous to call people and sort them on the easy and fast way, it can lead us to form the wrong opinion, which can lead to a lot of bad things. I learned to not judge people right away. A future friend might behave terribly the first time and a future enemy might be very nice to you. I had to say this before continuing with this article. You will encounter slaves or servants in a long-term survival situation and even if they go on a very different path from a brave fighter… they are real survivalists and just make things work. Many lone fighters died and many servants suffered but survived. Yes, it’s not like in a movie. A Lady who was my colleague before SHTF lived with her husband and two kids, she was in her 30ies, very nice and easy person to work with. She was my friend and we shared a lot of the great moments at the job. I never see or heard anything bad about her. I knew her husband, I knew her kids… When SHTF I lost contact with her in all that chaos, and to be honest I completely forget about her, I had a lot more important things to worry about. A few months later, on my trip that almost killed me out of town over the mountains to obtain some stuff that we needed I had the opportunity to meet her again. We already passed the most dangerous parts of the trip, mines, mountains, woods, and no man’s land and arrived into a small part of a territory controlled by one of the numerous militias, loosely tied to bigger (again numerous) fractions. These guys did not give us any problems, other than a very short checking about who we are and where we are going. We already paid for the passage to „guy who knows a guy“ so everything went smoothly. We made a short rest in one of the shacks and drink hot „tea“. The actually exact description would be „hot dirty melted snow, with added alcohol“. Then I saw her, my ex-colleague. If I learned anything since SHTF that was the fact that you need to hide your feelings and body language until you figure out what is actually really going on. So I did not say anything to her, and I acted like I do not know her, even if I wanted very hard to jump, hug her and ask about anything, about her, her family, etc.

She put some rice on the table, and more alcohol in front of one of the group members. She was one woman in a group of 30 plus men, who were armed, wasted and pretty dangerous. Most of them did not know too much about literature but they did know enough about violence. She did not look like a prisoner, and also she did not look scared or beaten. She also did not or did not want to recognize me.  Anyway about a half-hour later one of the men from the group told me I can have her, for a price, explaining to me that „she is the property of the leader, but also if anybody is willing to pay she can belong to anyone for a half-hour“.  Now if you saw that in a movie, probably you would expect from me to shoot all of them and save her, so we can ride into the sunset. But it was not a movie, and I could get maybe three of them down before someone blows my head and takes my boots and rifle. And even if I could save her she would probably tell me that she does not want to be saved. We went through that piece of land without any problems, and I did not see her again, ever. And no, I did not pay the price and bought her for a half-hour, and I did not try to start a conversation with her. Later I found out the whole story. When SHTF people did a lot of different things in order to survive. She became a mistress for one of that small group, the leader, and also prostitute for that group. She was not a prisoner, well not obvious, but you also need to understand that if she left that group she and her family would lose protection and a steady income of goods. And her kids needed to eat something. I do not know what her husband thinks about all that (he was a bit of weak guy before SHTF), but rumors were that he agreed with that, in order to survive everything. So it lasted like that for months. And they survived. So is that good or bad? It’s nothing. It’s survival. Blame her husband? No.. because they survived. If he would have become a fighter he might have died and with him his family. This does not mean people should let their wives become prostitutes (there were male prostitutes too by the way). Everyone makes his own decisions and later you always know better. Again here comes in not judging. Of course, when peace and normal life came they just could not stand to live here, not after what happened. So they choose to emigrate. As I heard they are living somewhere in South America under different names. Here is some more background to that. Prostitution here in Bosnia was something different than in other countries, and before SHTF you should be a member of the very rich and higher class of society or higher ranks of the political elite to be able to get into contact with one. It was illegal and also it was traditionally very „wrong“. So, prostitution was rare. To be known prostitute was rare. To have a normal family woman and she would become a prostitute was unbelievable and almost impossible. When the SHTF lots of things changed. There were prostitutes all around, not to mention women who were held as some kind of half slaves. Their position was not always the same, and some of them were not more than slaves, some other ones were almost as powerful as the gang leaders who they belonged to. There were also men who were just mascots or servants for more powerful people but overall this was the more common way for a woman to survive. Not all women were prostitutes of course, just like men they all choose how to survive, some were prostitutes, others were more dangerous with a rifle than a lot of men. But most of them choose just to stay home with the family and do care about kids. It was not something like – they need to do that – they did what they did best and what was needed, just like most of the folks in that period… That woman I spoke about was much closer to an equal gang member than a slave. They did not force her to prostitution, actually, she belonged to the group leader, but also she would sell herself for goods, some of those goods she keeps for herself and family and some have gone to members of the gang. It was her “trade”. When other men risked their life she overcome her dignity (not sure if that is the right word) and did that. She had protection and food, also her family home had some kind of protection from that group and also food and other things. She was there mainly for the fun of the group leader, sometimes other members and customers when she wanted.

They survived, we can now judge them and talk about what every one of us could do in their situation but we should not. This is could also be a lesson for normal times. I work in emergency service (for a long time) and see daily people living at borders of normal society or even far from that borders in a different, very dark and nasty world. It’s not that all of them are bad, but sometimes, in life, you have to do whatever it takes even if it makes sense only for you at that moment. It is not an excuse but it helps to remember that when your existence is under threat you might do very different things too. I’m sure only very few (maybe sexually very open people) really plan on going that way when SHTF. Remember, no planning and preparing while the weather is calm, will have serious consequences when the storm will unleash. Most of the people fail to see the ”big picture”, they are ”sleeping’ comfortably and when the world as they know it will end, (and it will end sooner rather than later) if they are lucky enough will end up as slaves or servants. What role do you see yourself in? What role do you plan for?

IT’S ALIVE! SCIENTISTS ARE PRINTING LIVING “XENOBOTS” OUT OF BIOLOGICAL CELLS

Scientists Are Printing Living “Xenobots” out of Biological Cells It’s Alive!

Computer scientists and biologists have teamed up to create a new kind of living robot. Grown from the stem cells of the frog Xenopus laevis, these so-called xenobots represent a new fusion of biological life and robotics that defies any sort of conventional definition, The New York Times reports. They only live for about a week and are far simpler — biologically speaking — than other organisms, but the lab-grown, pre-programmed life forms represent a major step forward in the pursuit of living machinery.

Designer Babies Xenobots, which were first brought to life back in January, can’t reproduce. Instead, computer scientists program them in a virtual environment and then 3D print their creations out of embryonic cells. “We are witnessing almost the birth of a new discipline of synthetic organisms,” Columbia University roboticist Hod Lipson, who was not part of the research team, told the NYT. “I don’t know if that’s robotics, or zoology or something else. Form, Function For now, xenobots are extremely limited: they don’t have nervous systems or much else in the way of complex biology, and their behavior is determined by their physical shape. For instance, the NYT describes a snowplow-shaped one that can sweep up stray particles in its petri dish. But even if they’re simple now, the xenobots are an extraordinary accomplishment — and represent a new scientific field to keep an eye on.

America’s Economy Sabotaged By Totalitarian Dictators

By Kelleigh Nelson|May 19th, 2020

It also gives us a very special, secret pleasure to see how unaware the people around us are of what is really happening to them. —Adolf Hitler

The people want wholesome dread. They want to fear something. They want someone to frighten them and make them shudderingly submissive. —Ernst Rohm, Hitler’s chief of the SA (Storm Trooper)

The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it. —Joseph Mengele, MD, “Angel of Death” at Auschwitz

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. —Thomas Jefferson

How quickly we forget that in January President Trump restricted traffic from China, and Dr. Fauci was not pleased. Fauci opposed eliminating flights from China. He disagreed and then ultimately, he agreed. That’s newsworthy. Fauci also doesn’t believe the virus came from the Wuhan lab, despite the fact that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) “expert” shelled out a total of $7.4 million to the Wuhan biolab for this research. Fauci and other medical experts on the White House coronavirus task force are “Hillary Clinton sympathizers” with a vendetta against President Donald Trump and his supporters. Time has proven that locking down the entire country for a virus that kills and hospitalizes less than seasonal flu has been a huge mistake promoted by VP Mike Pence and his unvetted Task Force globalists. Both Fauci and Birx are tightly bound to WHO Director Tedros, a Marxist-Leninist apologist for China. Funds for their activities come from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which wants to vaccinate us all, just as they did in Africa with devastating results. President Trump agrees to restore partial funding to WHO, run by a Marxist-Leninist. Why? Gates is a population reduction aficionado as are Anthony Fauci and George Soros. Gates’ goal is not life, but death and the reduction of world population. Inflating Statistics A week ago, Dr. Birx said, “There is nothing from the (Center for Disease Control) CDC I can trust.” She has expressed doubts about the CDC Control statistics’ reports and believes the CDC has dramatically inflated the numbers by at least 25 percent. Birx and others reportedly feared that the CDC Control and Prevention’s data-tracking system was inflating coronavirus death rates and case numbers statistics. Falsified death records are common. Physicians throughout America have complained about being forced to falsely label the cause of death as Covid-19. Dr. Scott Jensen, Republican member of the Minnesota Senate spoke to Laura Ingraham about the actual infection rates. Birx is still claiming that the “shelter-in-place” directive was saving lives, but now we know that’s not true either. Over 36 million, or nearly 22 percent of Americans are without work; the economy continues going down the drain and many people have lost everything. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo came forth and acknowledged that new hospitalizations caused by COVID-19 are from individuals who did, in fact, stay home. Fox News confirmed that the percentage of new coronavirus patients who listened to the government and stayed home is at 66%.

What Michael Smith of Wells, Maine wrote in the WSJ is absolutely true, “We have torched the house to rid it of spiders.” He went on to say that the governments’ response will kill us if the virus doesn’t. If unemployment hits 32 percent, some 77,000 Americans are likely to die from suicide and drug overdoses as a result of layoffs. Deaths of despair. Vaccines We can’t open now, says Chinese mouthpiece Dr. Tedros for the World Health Organization, not for five years. “It could take up to five years before the coronavirus pandemic is under control.” And WHO friend, Dr. Fauci, is not going to authorize reopening if the virus is not under control. First, we had to flatten the curve, then we had to follow the data of gigantically flawed models, and now we need more testing, which only shows you how many more people have gotten this virus. It’s not enough. Now we need antibody testing. That doesn’t mean anything anymore. Now we need a vaccine. Flu vaccines rarely cover the exact type of seasonal flu, and in any given year, a flu shot is only about 40-60 percent effective. The CDC reported that the 2020 flu vaccine was 45% effective against type B and 37% effective against type A. It’s doubtful a Covid-19 vaccine would be any better, and we certainly don’t want it mandated. President Trump said in an interview last week that he is gung-ho to distribute a coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is developed. “Our military is now being mobilized so at the end of the year we’re going to be able to give it to a lot of people very, very rapidly,” the president said in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. If a flu vaccine is only 40 – 60 percent effective, why would a Covid-19 vaccine be any better. No one has ever come up with a vaccine for the common cold virus or even for HIV-AIDS. No thanks, I don’t want the speedily made vaccine that will inject my body with foreign elements that could well make me sick or shorten my life. Oh, those lovely vaccines! The 1960s polio vaccine that gave everyone soft tissue cancer was grown on monkey kidneys. The cancer-causing SV-40 monkey virus is genetically passed to your descendants. And guess what? The Daily Post is reporting that Bill Gates offered Nigeria’s House of Representatives $10 million if they passed a compulsory vaccine bill.

A Digital “Snapshot” for Every Injection On May 12th, PRNewswire reported that ApiJect Systems America, Inc., a public benefit corporation based in Stamford, CT, announced that it has been awarded an HHS-DOD Title 3, Data Processing Agreement (DPA) contract valued up to $138 million to accelerate the building of a new U.S.-based, high-speed, population-scale emergency drug injection capability with prefilled syringes from its subsidiary RAPID USA Inc. RAPID USA’s emergency program, “Project Jumpstart” is being initiated to supply 500 million prefilled syringes by year-end. Jumpstart will develop the capability to manufacture a minimum of 30 million prefilled syringes per month once therapeutic drugs and vaccines become available. If coronavirus vaccines were planned to be optional – respecting the vaccine choices of individuals, not more than 100 million doses would be needed. The fact that 500 million doses are being manufactured is an admission that the DoD and HHS plan to make Covid-19 vaccines mandatory. The DoD awarded a $238 million contract enabling prefilled syringes for the future Covid-19 vaccine. The ApiJect syringes come with an optional RFID device enabling health care workers to track the GPS location of the syringes and record the identity of those being injected according to the company’s website. Before giving an injection, the healthcare worker will be able to launch a free mobile app and “tap” the prefilled syringe on their phone, capturing the Near Field Communication (NFC) tag’s unique serial number, GPS location and date/time. The app then uploads the data to a government-selected cloud database. Aggregated injection data provides health administrators an evolving real-time “injection-map.” No thanks big brother!

Remdesivir v. Hydroxychloroquine Dr. Fauci has never backed the very cheap 60-year-old drug, hydroxychloroquine. In fact, he has criticized its usage. Yet around the world, including within the U.S., this cheap drug has had excellent results, especially when given early in a Covid-19 diagnosis. There is little money to be made with this drug and the accompanying antibiotic, Azithromycin.

Dr. Stephen Smith called hydroxychloroquine a “game changer” in the fight against Covid-19. He had been treating his Covid patients with hydroxychloroquine with a 100% cure rate. He believed that the fight against the virus was over, but he underestimated the nefarious forces in the medical establishment and how much money was to be made. Ivette Lozano is a Dallas doctor who is treating her coronavirus patients with hydroxychloroquine and the recovery success rate of her patients is 100%. In the following video she explains how Texas has passed a bill that disallows prescribing hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin without giving a diagnosis to the pharmacist. They’ve eliminated the privacy of the HIPPA law because this drug is successful and cheap and obviously, they don’t want it used. A recent Gateway Pundit article, brilliantly researched by Joe Hoft, exposed the connections with remdesivir. The very first case of Covid-19 was in Washington state and the clinic where the patient was treated for declining health happened to have samples of the drug to give him intravenously. He recovered. By mid-February a Chinese company was mass producing remdesivir, despite studies showing a lack of benefit. The drug is from Gilead Sciences and the clinical trials are being done by Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Fauci is behind the promotion of Gilead’s remdesivir and has worked with Gilead for years. Gilead is partnered with Wuxi AppTec, an international pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and medical device company located in China and owned in part by George Soros.

Gilead has endorsed and is engaged with a drug purchasing group, Unitaid which is an outgrowth of the United Nations, Millennium Declaration of 2000, which is now the U.N. Global Compact (sustainability via UN Agenda 2030). Despotic States Governor Wolf of Pennsylvania, (GOP Rep. Scott Perry called out Governor Wolf for killing elderly Pennsylvanians in nursing homes.) Governor Cuomo of New York and other states had ordered nursing homes to take Covid-19 patients resulting in thousands of fatalities to elderly and immune compromised patients within these facilities. Long Island is now calling for a federal probe into more than 5,000 nursing home deaths. If you thought the drones were bad telling us to keep our distance from each other, how about the Darpa Robot enlisted by police to enforce distancing. The robots are able to scan anyone walking on the sidewalks, record license plates, use infrared vision, and one of the scariest uses of this technology is the capability to detect cellphone serial numbers within a designated patrolling area.  According to CBS, the devices are actively being used and can be seen in 16 states including New York at the Lefrak City Apartments in Queens and LaGuardia Airport. In Kentucky, now run by Democratic Governor Andy Beshear rather than Republican Governor Bevin, authorities have ordered Louisville residents who have been exposed to the flu virus, but won’t self-quarantine, to wear a tracking device to ensure they don’t leave the house. In Tennessee, a 39-year-old homeless person who tested positive for the virus and was incarcerated at the local Nashville fair grounds, escaped and fled. He was stopped and arrested by Metro Nashville Parks police two miles from where he had been quarantined. Metro Parks has charged the man with a single count of escape from a penal institution, a class A misdemeanor. The statute that defines this crime makes no mention of it being used to enforce quarantine orders. And our Governor Bill Lee claims to be a constitutional conservative. Senate hopeful Bill Hagerty’s stint as Tennessee’s Department of Economic & Community Development Commissioner ended with the Volunteer State becoming the “most dependent state in America for trade with China.” He was appointed by ‘Never Trumper’ Republican Gov. Bill Haslam in 2011. Haslam proudly stated he did not vote for Trump. At the expense of American workers, Hagerty’s first-choice candidate in the 2016 Republican primary was Jeb Bush. And even after Jeb’s candidacy flamed out, he shifted to supporting pro-amnesty Marco Rubio. In Ventura County California, Dr. Robert Levin, director of Ventura County Public Health spoke before the board of supervisors about a plan to hire up to 50 new “contact tracing investigators” to “find people who have COVID-19 and immediately isolate them, find every one of their contacts, make sure they stay quarantined and check in with them every day.” He said they would be physically removed from their homes and isolated. He had to walk it back! The despotic Mayor of Providence, Rhode Island has told people to “social shame” those who refuse to wear masks. Those with compromised immune systems should wear protection, but for healthy people, wearing masks actually can make them more susceptible to the virus. And Amtrak now requires masks for all passengers. Open Economy Had we sheltered the compromised and elderly and allowed the economy to remain open, we may have had a higher number of deaths, but the immunity would have spread throughout the nation saving us from the debacle of debt, inflation, job loss, suicides, alcoholism, drug addiction, and domestic violence which has outnumbered the deaths from this virus. We’ve been sold another lie; dumbed down Americans don their masks to go out into public. I’m ashamed of my fellow citizens and how easily they were brainwashed with lies and propaganda. Republican Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia celebrated the state’s lowest number of hospitalized coronavirus patients and the fewest number of COVID-19 patients on ventilators on Saturday, 15 days since he loosened lockdown restrictions in the face of persistent attacks from the mainstream media and the public disapproval of President Trump.  Currently, 995 people out of a population of 10.62 million, have died from Covid-19 in Georgia, according to the model, and it projects that number could climb to 4,691 by August 4. But it hasn’t. Republican Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida ripped into the media for their failing, dire predictions of his coronavirus response. He said to mainstream media, “You were all wrong about my state, we’re in better shape without draconian lockdown.  ”He’s right. Dr. Scott Atlas’ recent article in The Hill gives five facts as to why we need to reopen our economy, stop the panic and end the total isolation. Resistance A Seattle police officer sacrificed his job to speak the truth on the abuse of power by the government. Greg Anderson is married with children, but he could not continue to follow orders he knew were against the Constitution and Bill of Rights. A federal judge blocked Governor Beshear’s (D-KY) temporary ban on mass gatherings amid the coronavirus pandemic from applying to religious services. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) halted a coronavirus testing program promoted by billionaire Bill Gates and Seattle health officials pending reviews. The Texas Supreme Court halts expansion of mail-in voting during pandemic. The Hill reports that legal challenges to the stay-at-home orders are gaining momentum. The Wisconsin Supreme Court invalidated the state’s coronavirus health order, a decision that’s already generating momentum behind similar challenges across the country. Atwater, California has declared itself a sanctuary city for businesses!

Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer lost a fight to force a 77-year-old barber out of business. Despite moving to sustain his livelihood and remain economically afloat, the Michigan governor pulled strings and issued a cease-and-desist order against Manke. Ultimately, a Michigan judge ruled for Manke when the state’s Attorney General failed to make the bogus case that Manke posed “imminent danger to public health.” The repressive fascistic Governor plans to keep the state closed until a vaccine is available. And Michigan protesters plan “Operation Haircut” demonstration to push back against state’s ‘tyrannical’ stay-at-home order by Whitmer. Democrat Gov. Whitmer listed abortion as a non-elective procedure during Covid’s lockdown. She even decided to categorize it as “life-sustaining.” This woman is a murderer in so many ways…unborn babies, her constituents, and the survival of Michigan businesses. She is the epitome of evil. Conclusion Are Americans waking up to the attack on our country? They better, or these power-hungry neo-Nazi autocrats will strengthen the control over their constituents and we can kiss freedom good-bye.

The Absurd (and Sometimes Creepy) Ways Businesses Are Enforcing Social Distancing

by Daisy Luther

2020 has been a disturbing year all the way around, what with a pandemic, fear of contagions, mandatory lockdowns, and economic devastation. We’ve had everything from a deadly virus to aliens to murder hornets. And just when you thought this year, couldn’t get any stranger, hang on to your halo. Wait until you see some of the flabbergasting ways businesses are enforcing social distancing measures. Mannequins, cardboard people, and sex dolls Places that used to be bustling with human customers and spectators are now being populated with…mannequins, cardboard cut-outs, and sex dolls. It sounds like I’m making this up. I’m not. For example, Patrick O’Connell, the chef and proprietor of The Inn at Little Washington in Washington, Virginia, has teamed up with a local theater to dress mannequins in WW2 era finery to fill booths and make sure customers “maintain social distancing.”  …while adding an element of fun, the mannequins really hope to provide some of what has been lacking as many Americans seek connection in an isolating pandemic.

We’re all craving to gather and see other people right now,” O’Connell said. “They don’t all necessarily need to be real people.” (source) I hate to be mean because I know the intentions are good. But sitting amongst a room full of mannequins sounds more like that episode of Bates Motel when Norman had dinner with the taxidermied corpse of his mother than like a comforting return to normalcy to me. This isn’t a one-off, either. Next on “Dining with Dummies,” Australian restaurant-goers can sit in a cafe with cardboard people, lulled by the buzz of taped conversations on the speakers. At Five Dock Dining, cardboard cutouts will keep you company while you dine. In Sydney, Australia, the restaurant is adapting to a post-coronavirus normal by adding cardboard cutouts to dining tables. The restaurant also plans to play guest “chatter” on the speakers… …The limit on guests presented a challenge to Frank Angeletta, the owner of the restaurant. Five Dock Dining has a large dining space, and he was worried the area would feel empty. (source) I applaud the effort and the creativity, I really do. But is it just me or are these efforts to put fake humans in restaurants kind of creepy? I would much rather sit in a nearly empty restaurant than be surrounded by fake humans. If you’ll pardon the pop culture reference, anyone who has ever watched the show Supernatural knows what’s likely to happen next. Then there are the sporting events. A professional soccer league in South Korea made the befuddling choice to stud the bleachers with blow-up dolls holding up signs to cheer their teams along. The club FC Seoul apologized on Monday after what it believed were ordinary mannequins — quickly recognized by many fans as sex dolls — were placed in the stands for a match against Gwangju FC. Some on social media noted the telltale signs, like the business logos for sex toy marketers on the dolls’ clothing, or their strikingly buxom physiques. Of the roughly two dozen dolls in the stands, nearly all were women. “We had tried to add some fun in the no-spectator match,” FC Seoul said in a statement. “But we have not checked all the details, and that is clearly our fault.” (source) In Taiwan, a baseball game was played before a full stadium. The thing is, the stadium was full of cardboard cutouts and plastic mannequins holding signs. Oh, and a band of robot drummers. On a balmy Saturday evening inside one of Taiwan’s largest baseball stadiums, the floodlights flickered to life and the players took their positions. Cheerleaders began their rah-rah routines. Organ music blared through the speakers. But as the first batter stepped up to the plate and the pitcher took a deep breath, the only fans inside the 20,000-seat stadium in the northern city of Taoyuan were cardboard cutouts and plastic mannequins. Some wore hot-pink wigs and surgical masks. Others held signs with this cheery message: “We will always be with you!” A five-member band of robots played drums from the stands — a substitute for the usual cacophony of live music. (source) I’m just going to present this without further commentary. Then there are these ways to keep humans apart. Bizarre social distancing methods don’t stop with the use of fake humans. Read on for the undignified methods other restaurants are keeping humans apart. A restaurant in Ocean City, Maryland is putting patrons in individual “bumper boat” tables. “It’s like a bumper boat, but it’s actually a table,” owner Shawn Harmon said of the design, which was developed by Revolution Event Design and Production in Baltimore. A customer will stand in the center of the circular table surrounded by a rubber barrier that keeps them safely separated from other patrons in accordance with social distancing guidelines. The tables sit on wheels that allow them to stay mobile. (source) Oh good. You can walk around with your big, awkward bumper boat table. And who doesn’t want to stand the entire time they eat dinner or have a beer? Heaven help you if there was some kind of attack or emergency and you needed to move quickly. I have a horrible mental image of a bunch of people in innertubes all trying to squeeze out of the exit at once. If standing in a giant innertube for dinner isn’t your idea of fun, don’t despair. There are numerous other bizarre methods to have a socially distant dinner. A restaurant in Schwerin, Germany is handing out pool noodle hats for their customers to don. That sentence just confused my editing software so much it had no suggestions for improving the clarity. Café Rothe in the city of Schwerin along with German TV channel RTL, celebrated its reopening by handing out social distance-enforcing pool noodle hats to patrons as a gimmick. “In these difficult times it’s a pleasure to make others smile,” restaurant owner Jacqueline Rothe told Insider. (source) But what if you don’t want to sit with fake humans, stand in an innertube, or wear a funny hat? Does that mean you can no longer go out to dinner? Don’t despair. A restaurant in Thailand has a cuddly approach to social distancing. Maison Saigon is using stuffed toys to keep diners company while they eat. “Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I’d give them some company,” said Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, the owner of Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok. Sitting opposite one of the panda dolls, diner Sawit Chaiphuek said he was happy to have some company as he stepped out to eat for the first time in months. “The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself,” said Sawit, 25. (source) Although this seems like a good way to keep the kiddos happy, apparently, some adults also feel better when they have something…anything…at the table with them in a restaurant. And here I’ve just been taking a book with me for times like this. Is this the “new normal?” I know that I wrote before that we’d never get “back to normal” but this really isn’t what I meant. Never in the past ten years of creating content have I written an article with so many potential times to use the word “flabbergasted.” We are witnessing the death of human dignity. The end of an Empire. The collective loss of all rational coping mechanisms. It just can’t be mentally healthy to be surrounded by fake people all the time. My mind is boggled that there are hebetudinous people who prefer sitting with stuffed animals or mannequins to just sitting at a table in a partially empty restaurant. Will we be doing this for six months? A year? Forever?

It was one thing when Tom Hanks’ character on Castaway had a deep friendship with a volleyball named Wilson. He was legitimately isolated. But we are not. We don’t have to have inanimate “friends.” What does this say about people? About our future as a society? It’s an absolute dumpster fire. People are so worried about being “safe” that they’re embracing the bizarre and extreme, instead of pushing forward and getting on with their lives. While I do take the virus seriously, I’m not fearful. Just imagine the level of fear that an adult must be feeling when dining in public with a stuffed toy makes them feel better. It’s difficult to fathom such a breathtakingly aberrant world, filled with imaginary friends and actual, physical, personal space bubbles. Imagine if this continues, the damage done to children who grow up knowing nothing else. How will they develop empathy and healthy human relationships? This is an environment that fosters fear and mistrust of others, just like the horrifying back-to-school scenario that had kids marching in 5-feet-apart formation for “recess.” It’s like some kind of bizarre, humiliating social experiment to see how far people are willing to be pushed when they’re afraid.

This takes the “divide” part of “divide and conquer” to an unimaginable new level.

On Viral Attacks by Benevolent Benefactors

By Doug “Uncola” Lynn via TheBurningPlatform.com

What catches us by surprise hurts us double. – Seneca

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals. I remember once in college we had a class discussion on how ancient Rome expanded primarily out of fear of being conquered. In other words, the Romans believed their best defense was a strong offense: they engaged in the hostile takeovers of their enemies to avoid being conquered themselves. This calls to mind the interaction between the emotion of fear and how it relates to the survival instinct. Undeniably, these will often supersede the loftier considerations of ethics and law; and they apply equally to individuals, gangs, groups, corporations, cults, and governments. The desire for control is rooted in fear and perhaps greed. In many cases, these may even be rooted in pride. There are also physical, and perhaps spiritual, aspects to these principles having to do, ultimately, with domains; or realms. Therefore, it becomes like the animal kingdom whereby the strong prey on the weak and when carnivorous beasts battle over territory. The Giant Vampire Squid Cult has been consolidating global power for decades. It knows it’s outnumbered and the only way it can survive is through deception and by spinning narratives designed to trick those who threaten them (i.e. you) into granting them the permission to rule. Upon gaining control of the entertainment, business, and political realms, The Cult has advanced only those who have demonstrated their allegiance. Those who don’t obey are shunned, banished, or imprisoned like former Trump advisors Paul Manafort and Roger Stone; while others who stray off the reservation are “expired” (think Seth Rich). The reason daily events are so dire at present is because The Cult has consolidated power, through technology, to the extent they don’t believe they need our permission any longer. It’s why their “noose” is now tightening around our necks in the form of societal restrictions. Or as musician Frank Zappa once stated: The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater. The COVID-19® deception was brilliant in that it accomplished multiple evil objectives all at once. The Coronavirus® pinprick collapsed the Economic Everything Bubble and deflected blame away from the bankers who blew it up. At the same time, it turned martial law into self-quarantine and abolished the First Amendment rights of American citizens including the free exercise religion, the freedom of speech, and the right peaceably assemble… all under the arbitrary mandates of Social Distancing®. Additionally, cash has been transitioned into a viral threat – thus paving the way to a new digital world order; and the end of privacy. But what was especially sinister about the COVID-19® deception is how it activated the fear and survival instincts of people in order to turn on each other. In an article I posted early last month entitled: “April Fools: In the New Age of Deception, Coronavirus has : “April Fools: In the New Age of Deception, Coronavirus has Hastened the Old Collectivism”, I discussed how a friend had hysterically berated me via text because he learned I hosted a meeting with five other people on private property. My “friend” said I was endangering others. In that article, posted on April Fool’s Day, I concluded with these final words: In a few months, if not weeks, this guy will be begging for Government As God to save him, and, in so doing, I have no doubt he’d sell me out to any governing authority for any reason. We’re about to enter into a real Walking Dead scenario and the Dark Powers will be getting years of mileage out of COVID-19 in every aspect of post-American life. Truly, the new age will be delivered by concentrically tightening circles of control – like a noose. The Powers That Be have successfully divided and dispersed what they have deemed a threat: the American people. All that remains now is the conquering, and it will come in waves, or seasonal cycles. t long after that piece was posted, a video went viral of a caucasian woman yelling at some caucasian kids for enjoying their lives instead of acting like submissive quaranteenagers. In the post, the woman was dubbed a “Karen”. I thought that was kind of funny because, in my head, I heard “Karen” the same way Ray Liotta’s character yelled at his wife (played by Lorraine Bracco) toward the end of the movie “Goodfellas”. xt, I read an article entitled: “The Difference Between a ‘Karen’ and a ‘Becky,’ Explained” which defined a “Karen” as a white woman who purposely “weaponizes” her “privilege”.

So I’ve since learned the label of “Karen” began as a means to advance identity politics and was later reassigned to sarcastically disparage the New American Stasi for squealing on their neighbor’s COVID-19 Social Distancing® infractions. A few examples include “The Babylon Bee” satire website reapportioning “KAREN” into Knowledgeable Actors Reporting Edict Noncompliance and jokingly imagining a Facebook button that would allow Karen’s to brand on social media any postings of potentially Coronavirus-infected children playing too close together outdoors. And, like Pepe the Frog during the 2016 Presidential Election, it is humorous how online memes are battling back against the various “thought-control” mechanisms that have been propagated under the “virtue signaling” guises of political correctness, identity politics, and, most recently, the COVID-19 mandates. at is NOT funny, however, are the extreme measures currently being undertaken by those with whom the Karen’s collude. In an American Thinker article entitled: “Police State Dry Run a Huge Success”, the author has collated over 100 linked examples of government authoritarians using COVID-19 to override the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens. These infractions have occurred under the guise of protecting Americans from getting sick and/or sickening others: We’ve been physically and verbally harassed, threatened, fined, detained, arrested, jailed, and/or placed in forced quarantine. Business licenses have been revoked. Going to work without the permission of the government is now a crime. So is going to the park or a beach. Children playing together is also in defiance of the government. So is placing flags on the graves of veterans. The list of infractions goes on and on and on and on. Examples read like the manifesto of a demented madman… y student of history can understand what is happening currently because it’s happened before. And for those readers who want to gain some additional insights on how seemingly good people can pave the road to hell on earth via their good intentions, please read a previous article I wrote entitled “The “Experimenter”: Understanding Why Shit Happens . These were the final words from that piece: To understand the future we must look to the past. History repeats, thus, ignorance is no excuse. Multiple illustrations over the last century demonstrate how it often became fashionable for people to blindly submit to authority, or conform to group influence, instead of accepting the evidence of their own minds. This is, after all, how shit happens.

When the elite billionaires and financial pimps print fiat money they are, in unreality, creating power out of thin air. Yet, it requires the trickery of what economists call “confidence” – which is, in essence, our full cooperation. uly, the plebeians were purchased with the money they earned and the taxes they paid. They were tricked into selling themselves. Yet, Fractional Reserve Banking was a ruse that required our compliance. Those contracts of indebtedness did not sign themselves. The same can be said about the War on Terror®, The Patriot Act®, the Troubled Asset Relief Program® (TARP), et al. We voted for those and our leaders bestowed them in the name of Democracy. t’s good for you”, our leaders said. d, now, it’s happened again with COVID-19®. This time, once more, our Benevolent Benefactors claim to be protecting us from something they say is dangerous. cept, the COVID-19 virus has never been isolated. PCR tests show RNA/coronavirus (genetic) components that exist in a large percentage of the human population. Hence, the more tests, the more positives. It’s also why so many deaths brought about by so-called “co-morbidities” has occurred with people showing the (likely pre-existing) RNA/coronavirus/genetic components in their blood. And many died when ventilators blew out their lungs in accordance with Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. l of this occurred rapidly throughout multiple regions of the world. ndemic defined: Occurring over a wide geographic area and affecting an exceptionally high proportion of the population nce, the John Hopkin’s online/live Coronavirus maps and dashboard: Because perception is reality in the electronic age.  It was all planned. In past articles, I’ve explained various reasons why Covid-19 fails the “Sniff Test”, including the October, 2019 Bill Gate’s Foundation and John Hopkin’s sponsored “Event 201” pandemic exercise held in New York City. reover, in my most recent piece entitled “Suspicion and Skepticism are Vaccines for Deception”, a Rockefeller-Foundation-commissioned 2012 pandemic plan named “Lock Step” was explored along with the eerie predictive pandemic programming in the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremonies. that article, I decided not to include any discussion of a 2009 disaster movie called “2012” which described a planetary alignment bringing about the demise of the world’s population – except for the wealthy elite who (in a perverse retelling of Noah’s Ark) escaped in gleaming high-tech ships; and, of course, prior to the establishment of a “New World and the coming of the Age of Aquarius”. the opinion of this blogger, these foretellings are reminiscent of the famous Sherlock Holmes quote: “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth? We know that he did not come through the door, the window, or the chimney. We also know that he could not have been concealed in the room, as there is no concealment possible. When, then, did he come?”

– Doyle, “The Sign of the Four”, ch. 6 (1890), Doubleday p. 111

When, then, does coincidence become conspiracy and predictions prove planning? ask this because another recent headline has again revealed why 2012 was a prophetic year – and, obviously, not only for the Mayans: It has been revealed that a “strange comic book” was “commissioned for publication by the European Union in 2012” and it “eerily predicted almost exactly what has unfolded with the Covid-19 global pandemic”: The comic book, titled ‘Infected’, was a production of the European Commission’s international cooperation and development arm. It was not intended for widespread public consumption, but instead to be distributed inside EU institutions…

…The graphic novel depicts scientists inside a lab in China experimenting with deadly pathogens…

The story features the transmission of a novel virus from animals to humans in a crowded wet market…

Thanks to Shutdowns, Many Will Learn That Public Schooling Isn’t All That Essential After All

May 18, 2020

While some of America’s most demagogic politicians try to exploit the COVID-19 outbreak, some Americans are trying to make the most of their de facto state of house arrest. Government-imposed lockdowns have resulted in the shutdown of a number of schools across the nation. During this period some schools have gone online, while others have closed up indefinitely. Society is conditioned to believe that children cannot possibly be able to receive an education under such circumstances. After all, education can only take place in a classroom, at least in the social planners’ view. However, some families are daring to do the unthinkable by experimenting with homeschooling. Counter to the opportunistic political class, which views every crisis as a moment to undermine people’s liberties, a number of homeschooling proponents have flipped the script to promote homeschooling. What better time to do so, when most families are stuck at home and don’t even know when schools will open up again. Even in times of uncertainty, people have repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to experiment and try different methods without the tutelage of central planners. Unfortunately, we live in a political culture in which voluntary alternatives to state-dominated institutions never show up on the chattering class’s radar. Public education happens to be one of the rituals in the American civic religion that one dares not question lest one is burned at the stake of public opinion. When people start experimenting outside educational norms, ivory-tower elites feel almost obliged to nudge their disobedient subjects back to the government schooling plantation. Harvard Magazine had to make sure that the rubes did not stumble upon the benefits of homeschooling by publishing a piece skeptical of the practice. The article put particular emphasis on Elizabeth Bartholet’s perspective, the faculty director of Harvard Law School’s Child Advocacy Program, and her call for “a presumptive ban on the practice” in the Arizona Law Review. Bartholet invoked some of the most egregious forms of newspeak by suggesting that homeschooling is “essentially authoritarian control over their children from ages zero to 18.” In her ever so enlightened view, the very thought of homeschooling is “dangerous.” There’s a lot to break down in Bartholet’s antihomeschooling screed, but let’s focus on her assertion that homeschooling is “authoritarian.” This notion is risible. Such claims don’t even pass a laugh test when considering that the majority of the curriculum in contemporary public schools puts forward progovernment narratives when it comes to taxation, social welfare programs, war, and every other pillar of the modern-day managerial state. Parents voluntarily making educational arrangements in their children’s best interests is the polar opposite of authoritarianism, unless the definition of the word changed in our sleep. Also, what does Bartholet have to say about the current public education system taking children away from their parents and subjecting them to more than fifteen thousand hours of school time over their K–12 careers? Some politicians don’t even think this amount of time locked up in school is enough. For example, California senator Kamala Harris proposed extending the school day to ten hours. Curious minds would like to know what Bartholet thinks about Harris’s idea. I, for one, would not hold my breath at this point. For the high priests of public education, more time interacting with the state represents virtuous behavior, whereas unplugging from the public education grid is tantamount to heresy in the managerial priesthood’s view. Academics such as Bartholet should spare us the sanctimonious hand wringing over the dangers of homeschooling. Bartholet is concerned that homeschooling is an impediment to a child’s right to a “meaningful education” and their right to “be protected from potential child abuse.” Education reformer John Taylor Gatto has demonstrated in his life’s work that public schooling is anything but education. In fact, he has a book titled Weapons of Mass Instruction in which he eloquently makes the case that public schooling is designed to create malleable cogs in the machine and discourage any form of independent thinking. As far as child abuse goes, I’d invite Bartholet to take a look at what’s taking place in America’s allegedly “safe” government schools. During the 2017–18 school year, approximately 962,300 violent incidents took place across the nation according to a study from the Institute of Education Studies. In this report, violent incidents consist of rape, other forms of sexual assault, robbery, physical attacks, and threats of physical attack. Similarly, the Associated Press found approximately seventeen thousand cases of sexual assault committed by students from 2011–15. Moreover, the number observed in that period does not portray the full extent of the problem, because a significant number of sexual assaults are unreported. For example, some states don’t even track the stats, and those that do record have different standards for how they categorize sexual violence. Although public schools may be “safe spaces” for politically correct curricula, they do not guarantee safe environments for students’ physical and mental health. According to a study from the US Department of Health and Human Services, 49 percent of school children in grades 4–12 reported being subjected to bullying by other students on a monthly basis, while 30.8 percent reported that they themselves engaged in bullying. How’s that for constructive socialization? Allow me to come down somewhere in the middle: some children will require traditional schooling models, albeit in a privatized setting. On the other hand, other students will thrive in homeschooling environments. Markets serve to satisfy the demands of diverse sets of consumers, not the political desires of central planners. For the political left, who claim to be “pro-choice” and “diverse,” they sure love sticking to one-dimensional models for education. The idea of nonstate education is not a radical proposition.

Throughout American history, countless Americans have built parallel educational institutions without the central direction of the state. Americans have always found ways to get around government-imposed obstacles and will continue to do so despite the draconian measures that state governments have taken during the current pandemic. American homeschooling has increased considerably in the last two decades despite the government barriers in place and the social pressure that naysayers exert to make sure America’s youth don’t veer away from the government schooling conveyor belt. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the number of homeschooled students doubled from 850,000 in 1999 to 1,800,000 in 2012. Such numbers will likely grow as more families begin experimenting with education at home. I tip my hat to the homeschoolers. They’re the ones who are engaging in revolutionary acts by categorically rejecting the public school industrial complex. Hopefully, more Americans learn about the benefits of homeschooling while government shutdowns continue and millions of Americans are kept under house arrest. As for Bartholet, she can continue decrying homeschooling all she wants. The good news is that markets don’t care about the opinions of ivory-tower elites. Regular people are the ones in charge, and they determine how services will be provided. As long as Bartholet’s idea of homeschooling prohibition does not become a political reality, she can continue yammering on about the supposed authoritarianism of homeschooling in the confines of her Ivy League pedestal for all I care. Millions of homeschoolers and other Americans who opt for nonstate education programs will go on with their lives without having to worry about what some Harvard elite has to say about their educational choices. Once the pandemic subsides, we should start focusing more of our time on a different public health problem. That is government schooling. I’ll gladly support a permanent lockdown of government schools; that way, we can prevent the statist mind virus from spreading even further. Visit the USSA News store!

A Silver Lining

Robert Gore Posted on May 17, 2020Categories Economy, Politics, Social Issues

Who will fight for your rights?

Guest post by Robert Gore at Straight Line Logic

…we are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

Ayn Rand, Capitalism, The Unknown Ideal, Appendix, “The Nature of Government,” 1967

We are no longer fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion, we’ve arrived. It is the stage of which every would-be dictator dreams, where his whims are absolute, and everything everyone else says, does, or thinks must comport with those whims, even—impossible though it would be—when they are contradictory. Science is anti-whim. Nature, as Francis Bacon observed, to be commanded must be obeyed. Nothing illustrates the ultimate inversion of the official coronavirus response better than its leaders’ assault on science in the name of their “science.” Doctors have been discouraged or prohibited from administering hydroxychloroquine, by itself or in conjunction with other medications, vitamins, and zinc compounds, to treat Covid-19. They have observed and documented the effectiveness of such remedies—mitigation or elimination of the disease’s symptoms—but their observation and documentation are dismissed. Only the validation procedure mandated by the medical bureaucracy—the expensive and complex multistage tests required of new drugs to establish their efficacy and safetywill suffice for official permission. It’s what their “science” demands of a cheap and seemingly effective remedy that’s been on the market for years as a treatment for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and malaria. So where were the tests and control-group studies for the pandemic models, lockdowns, social distancing, masks, flattening the curve, closing businesses, and contact tracing that have been the official coronavirus responses? Projections are hypotheses, but only one class of hypothesis was officially accepteddisaster scenarios that fed panic and paved the way for further expansion of governments’ power. The doomsday models have been discredited; cases and deaths have been orders of magnitude less than projected.

Countries that haven’t instituted lockdowns have fared no worse than countries that have. Andrew Cuomo, governor of hard-hit New York, recently expressed surprise that two-thirds of hospitalized coronavirus patients had been sheltering in place. As if locking people down—often families under close quarters—in apartment buildings that can’t control cockroaches would somehow protect dwellers against a microscopic, easily spread, fast replicating, and virtually infinite virus. No science at all supports social distancing; six-feet is an arbitrary construct (i.e., whim) of some medical would-be dictator. Masks force the rebreathing of your own respiratory waste, weakening your immune system for the dubious benefit of that all-powerful totem: public health. The health you’re supposedly protecting is certainly not your own. It’s like eating your own feces or drinking your own urine for a purported public benefit. Flattening the curve to ensure adequate hospital space for the wave of coronavirus patients that hasn’t happened has flattened the hospitals, leading to empty rooms and wards and layoffs for medical workers. Bankruptcies will follow. Lost jobs and shuttered businesses are just collateral damage for our would-be emperors, who have waged senseless wars and inflicted grievous collateral damage on other countries for decades. Now the devastation and misery they’ve left in their wake have come home. Americans who’ve never asked themselves how it felt to be a victim of their government’s senseless wars are now victims of their government’s senseless war on a germ. After an unsustainable debt-propelled respite, the Greater Depression has resumed (it started in 2008) and will last for years. Its poverty and devastation will sicken and kill multiples of the people who will ultimately be afflicted by the coronavirus. All this supposedly guided by “science,” yet its proponents commit the most unscientific offense—they corrupt their own data. By their own admission the tests they use give both false negatives and false positives. By their own admission they’re corrupting the death count. Doctors have been instructed to list Covid-19 as a cause of death if the deceased had any of the symptoms associated with Covid-19, even though those symptoms characterize a number of other diseases that singly or in combination kill people, especially people with compromised immune systems. Hospitals have a financial incentive to perpetuate this fraud. They receive $13,000 from Medicare for each Covid-19 patient and $39,000 for each patient put on a ventilator (Links here and here). The coronavirus tyranny has nothing to do with science, medicine, or health, and everything to do with establishing that ultimate inversion: the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission. These past few weeks we’ve seen how our rulers attempted to discard the last fig leaf—democracy—covering their creeping, now galloping, totalitarianism and complete lack of legitimacy. A camarilla within the nation’s intelligence services, the Department of Justice, and members of the previous administration, including Barack Obama, attempted to depose the democratically elected president of the United States. Such coups are the province of two-bit plotters in banana republics that make no pretense of observing or protecting rights, where might alone makes right. The United States has gone full banana—the stage of rule by brute force. Democracy is tyranny of the majority, a system that inevitably destroys individual rights. For the history-challenged, individual rights were the still revolutionary concept on which the idea—although not always the reality—of the United States was established. The logical consequence of the full protection of individual rights is the freedom to live your life as you see fit, as long as you don’t abridge the rights of others. Society or any other group of people has no rights apart from the rights of the individuals that comprise it. Governments have no rights, only the duty to protect the rights of individuals to live peaceably and freely. Government must be the servant, not the master, of its citizens. (See the Ayn Rand Appendix cited above, “The Nature of Government,” for a more detailed exposition of the proper role of government.) We’re light years from that ideal. Individuals must receive permission to, among other things, leave their homes, hold a job, assemble with other individuals, attend houses of worship, visit parks and beaches, or patronize businesses. The governor of my state, Michelle Lujan Grisham, just decreed that masks must be worn by everyone outside of their own dwellings (I wrote STOP MLG’S TYRANNY on mine). Breathing fresh air is now at the sufferance of our overlords. Civilly disobedient soul that I am, I have yet to don my mask. Don’t think sheep don’t get angry—I get murderous looks from mask-wearers. With every decree issued since this repression began, those who advocate for their individual rights or actually exercise them by violating the decree are denounced, shamed, censored, and in some cases arrested. Anyone who disagrees by word or deed is “selfish,” unwilling to sacrifice for the common good. What do they mean by selfish? Is it selfish to fight for your rights? Is it selfish to want to work and produce? Is it selfish to be more concerned with your own welfare and the welfare of your family and friends than with the welfare of strangers, the public, or the government that supposedly represents that public? Is your desire for freedom selfish? There are those who will tie themselves in intellectual knots answering those questions in the negative, but nevertheless asserting that individual rights and their exercise—free expression, free inquiry, free production, and free exchange—can all be justified as conferring the greatest public good. They then wonder why they never win arguments with those pushing collectivized notions of the public good. When might makes right, the public good is whatever the collective’s masters say it is—argument over. Fighting for one’s freedom and all that flows from it is selfish, profoundly so. If you don’t fight for that which is yours—the individual rights that are the essential condition of your existence—who’s going to do it for you? Anthony Fauci? Bill Gates? Nancy Pelosi? President Trump? Joe Biden? George Soros? Jerome Powell? Adam Schiff? Mark Zuckerberg? Eric Schmidt? Santa Claus? The Tooth Fairy? When was the last time you even heard the term “individual rights” in polite, mainstream discourse? When individual rights are mentioned at all, they’re treated as a quaint anachronism. And what do they mean by sacrifice? They mean that instead of selfishly fighting for your rights and freedom, you are to unselfishly place them on the sacrificial altar known as the public good. You’re selfish for resisting the sacrifice of that which is rightfully yours, but those collecting what is not rightfully theirs are selfless saints. If you voluntarily board that cattle car, you’ll secure your spot in the Unselfish Hall of Fame, along with millions of others who have lost their property, happiness, freedom, and lives without selfish protest or resistance. You might even be designated a Hero of the Public Good, posthumously of course. If you find the world’s descent into evil unfathomable, it’s time to rethink the premises that the selfless is the good and the selfish is evil. Collectivist butchers, including the ones pushing the coronavirus hoax, always demand fealty to some cause greater than one’s self. Fall for that one and you’ve already lost two important parts of yourself—your self-respect and your ability to reason. The precautionary principle—that no risks can be assumed if someone or something somewhere might be harmed—is anti-mind and anti-life, absurdly evil on its face. That philosophical abomination now excuses wholesale violation of individual rights and deadly economic devastation based on projections, bureaucratic whim, and political expediency. The precautionary principle would, if consistency applied, bring human progress to a halt, eventually rendering the human race extinct. Nothing is as unsafe as an insistence on absolute safety.

Risk is what makes life worth living—it’s the driver of human knowledge and progress. Imagine the choices that confronted early humans as they made their first choices. If we build a fire, will it warm us and cook our meat…or consume us? If we eat oysters, will they nourish or kill us? Will the canoe we’ve built float or sink? The forward steps of both our individual and humanity’s journeys have always involved unanswered questions, hypotheses, risk, experimentation, trial and error, tragedy, and triumph. It takes no imagination at all to envision potential risks. Make fear and safety paramount and none of those steps could have or will be taken. To believe that risks can be eliminated by arbitrary edicts is delusional; to enforce those edicts tyrannical; to comply with them suicidal. Wars are always fought and tyrannies always established in the name of somebody’s safety. The betrayal of individual conscience and surrender of individual rights to a collective for safety’s sake never produces safety, only misery, destruction, despair, terror and death. That’s a lesson we’re set to relearn as we proceed through one of those darkest periods of human history. There is a silver lining in all this: the curtain has been lifted, we now know exactly what we confront. Present governments and their many bootlickers and minions do not recognize—much less protect or hold themselves subordinate to the protection of—individual rights. Nor should we expect that they will do so within our lifetimes. Absent their replacement via revolution or abandonment via secession, we will continue to live in a political order where they are free to do as they please while we may act only by permission. If we want our rights, our freedom, and our lives, we’re going to have to fight for them with word and deed. It has ever been so; it will ever be so. Those who choose to fight will have one important ally: rule by brute force is the agent of its own collapse. It has always failed, it always will. Whether we have the virtue and wisdom to replace it with it’s antitheses—freedom and individual rights protected rather than destroyed by government—remains to be seen. Stay sane.

Another One Bites The Dust – First Wisconsin, Now Oregon Judge Renders Lockdown Orders “Null And Void” As Flurry Of Lawsuits Against Tyrannical Dem Governors Grow

Uncategorized May 19, 2020 By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

First it was the Wisconsin Supreme Court that found by a 4-3 vote that the Wisconsin Governor and administration had exceeded their authority when they extended the stay-at-home orders for their residents during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and now another Judge has rendered the Oregon Judge has “declared that all executive orders Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has issued related to the coronavirus pandemic are ‘null and void’.” Those are just the tip of the lawsuit iceberg.  WE THE PEOPLE The Wisconsin Supreme Court 4-to-3 ruling striking down the “unlawful and invalid” stay-at-home order made it very clear that there is a definite limit to what elected state leaders can and cannot order their citizens to do and in the case of these unconstitutional lockdown orders, what they cannot do. When we first reported the Wisconsin ruling we indicated that it was our opinion that other state judges should be mimicking the WI Supreme Court which referred to these draconian measures as the very definition of “tyranny.” Apparently that ruling has caused a ripple effect across the country. In Oregon, a Judge has rendered multiple executive orders by the Governor Kate Brown to be “null and void,” after multiple churches sued the Governor. Baker County Circuit Court Judge Matt Shirtcliff on Monday declared that all executive orders Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has issued related to the coronavirus pandemic are “null and void.” Brown has exceeded her authority by restricting activities, including church services and business operations, for longer than the 28 days the governor is authorized under a state law related to public health emergencies, Shirtcliff said. The judge granted a preliminary injunction blocking enforcement of the more than 10 executive orders the governor has issued since March 8. In the seven page ruling, the Judge maintained that “The public interest is furthered by allowing people to fully exercise their right to worship and conduct their business.” Brown’s representatives have appealed to Oregon’s Supreme court, which could go either way since a few of the current justices were appointed by Brown. The WI Supreme Court stayed the lower judges ruling until the court can hear both sides of the argument. The seven page ruling can be read at the Baker City Herald. At around the 9 minute mark of the audio below we hear the Judge clearly outline that the relevant statue of the Oregon constitution “does not grant the Governor power directly over the movement of citizens and gatherings.” (PLEASE HELP SUPPORT ANP: With Independent Media being censored on almost every internet platform, reader donations are what keeps websites like ANP up and running. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stefan & Susan.) In Illinois, a Republican state lawmaker sued Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker, seeking a temporary restraining order against the state’s stay-at-home order, which was granted to him individually, but leads the way for others to bring a suit requesting the same relief or an entity representing a group of residents. The lawmaker, state Rep. Darren Bailey, filed a motion late last week that sought to prevent the governor “from taking any action … which orders Darren Bailey to stay at home, or at his place of residence, as well as limiting his ability to travel within the state…” The motion alleged that Pritzker’s stay-at-home order is “in excess of the authority granted him” under Illinois law. The state lawmaker, Darren Bailey, offered his reasoning for taking his challenge to court in a statement last week.

Fox News reported: Bailey, on the other hand, said in a post on his website that Pritzker’s stay-at-home order oversimplified the coronavirus problem and didn’t take into account the fact it spreads more slowly in places where the population isn’t as dense. “The message is clear, we are not Chicago and we already distance ourselves just by our rural life styles. Why should we be punished with the loss of jobs and closing our businesses when the coronavirus emergency isn’t the same for us?” Bailey asked in a statement last week. “This one-size-fits-all mentality needs to be reviewed and take into account our diversity from urban to rural areas of the state.” Interestingly, the numbers do back up Bailey’s argument. On Monday the Wall Street Journal reported on the red state versus blue state numbers, stating “Two-thirds of confirmed coronavirus cases are in states with Democratic governors. When states are measured by the sheer number of coronavirus cases, six of the top seven have Democratic governors. Together, those six blue states have about half of the nation’s cases, though only about a third of its population. The piece goes on to reveal that “Coronavirus deaths tell a similar story. Eight of the nine states with the most deaths due to the virus are states with Democratic governors. When measured by deaths per capita, eight of the top nine states also have Democratic governors.” No the virus doesn’t “target” liberals and Democrats, but the manner to which the preventative measures are implemented, along with the density of the population in those areas, naturally makes the virus spread faster in some geographical locations than others.

More from Fox News on the flurry of lawsuits against Democrat Governors: Meanwhile, California alone is facing at least a dozen lawsuits that include claims that the state has unjustly closed down gun shops and religious services. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is up against a lawsuit from Republicans in her state’s House and Senate over her extension of an already-strict emergency order that has regulated residents’ movement and closed businesses. And Kentucky protesters sued officials including Gov. Andy Beshear, also a Democrat, for allegedly violating the First Amendment by banning mass protests. A group of Ohio gyms sued Republican Gov. Mike DeWine over his reopening order excluding them from those businesses allowed to operate, but it was subsequently announced that they will be allowed to reopen after all. SILVER LININGS While no one wants a pandemic, there are a couple silver linings to what we have seen from state elected leaders, in their overreach.

We now know which elected leaders will immediately gravitate to tyranny if given the opportunity. Citizens would do well to remember come election day.

• We also note that that the majority of lawsuits filed against these tyrannical Governors, are seeing the legal system side with “we the people,” which is making it clear that Governors do have limits to their power over “we the people.”

• We see that despite the trite assertion by many that “both parties are the same,” there are some very real differences in the moral makeup between Democrats and Republicans, as it is Republicans lawmakers initiating these lawsuits and demanding the rights of the citizens be honored.

• On another note, yet another silver lining here is that up to “40 percent of families are more likely to choose to homeschool their children or engage in virtual learning once the coronavirus pandemic subsides.”

Considering what we have seen in public schools throughout the past couple of decades where activism has replaced education, and children are being indoctrinated into communism and socialism, and kindergartners are being taught about sex, it can only be a good things to see parents learning what is happening to their children in school and taking control back.  I only wish that number were higher. BOTTOM LINE Precedent needs to be set by the courts showing that the guaranteed constitutional rights of Americans cannot be violated by our elected leaders.  It is times like these where we see the importance of nominating and confirming judges across America, from the lower courts to the appellant courts to the Supreme Court. Traditionally Democrats nominate liberal judges which act as activists while Republicans nominate conservative judges which try to adhere to the constitution, often referred to as “originalists.”

10 Numbers That Show The U.S. Has Fallen Into A Horrifying Economic Depression

May 17, 2020 by Michael Snyder

The last recession was really, really bad, but it was never like this. It is time for us to face reality, and that means admitting that the U.S. economy has plunged into a depression. This is already the worst economic downturn that America has experienced since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and we are right in the middle of the largest spike in unemployment in all of U.S. history by a very wide margin. Of course it was fear of COVID-19 that burst our economic bubble, and fear of this virus is going to be with us for a very long time to come. So we need to brace ourselves for an extended economic crisis, and at this point even Time Magazine is openly referring to this new downturn as an “economic depression”. Needless to say, there will be a tremendous amount of debate about how deep it will eventually become, but everyone should be able to agree that our nation hasn’t seen anything like this since before World War II. In order to prove my point, let me share the following 10 numbers with you…

#1 According to a study that was just released by the National Bureau of Economic Research, more than 100,000 U.S. businesses have already permanently shut down during this pandemic, and that represents millions of jobs that are never coming back.

#2 The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is now projecting that U.S. GDP will shrink by 42.8 percent during the second quarter

A new GDP forecast from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta for the three months through June estimates an unprecedented drop of 42.8 percent. The bank describes the data as a “nowcast” or real-time, compared with the official government report of GDP, which is dated. The first-quarter preliminary data, which showed a 4.8 percent dip, included a limited period of impact from COVID-19.

#3 On Friday we learned that U.S. retail sales were down 16.4 percent during the month of April, and that is a new all-time record.

#4 U.S. factory output was down 13.7 percent last month, and that was the worst number ever recorded for that category.

#5 U.S. industrial production fell 11.2 percent last month, and that represented the worst number in 101 years.

#6 On Thursday, we learned that the number of Americans that have filed initial claims for unemployment benefits during this pandemic has risen by another 2.9 million, and that brings the grand total for this entire crisis to 36.5 million. To put that number in perspective, at the lowest point of the Great Depression of the 1930s only about 15 million Americans were unemployed.

#7 According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the real rate of unemployment in the U.S. is now 30.7 percent.

#8 According to a survey Fed officials just conducted, almost 40 percent of Americans with a household income of less than $40,000 a year say that they have lost a job during this crisis.

#9 One study has concluded that 42 percent of the job losses during this pandemic will end up being permanent.

#10 According to a professor of economics at Columbia University, the U.S. homeless population could rise by up to 45 percent by the end of this calendar year.

We have never seen economic numbers this horrifying, and more awful economic numbers are coming in the months ahead. At this point, things are so bad that even Fed Chair Jerome Powell is openly admitting that he doesn’t really know how long this new economic downturn will last…

“This economy will recover…We’ll get through this. It may take a while. It may take a period of time. It could stretch through the end of next year,” Powell said during a rare televised interview that aired on “60 Minutes” Sunday night. “We really don’t know. We hope that it will be shorter than that, but no one really knows.” In the months ahead, there are a few sectors that you will want to keep a particularly close eye on, and one of them is the commercial real estate market. The following comes from Zero Hedge… Fast forward to today, coronavirus outbreak, and the ensuing lockdown, has essentially frozen the commercial real estate market. Buildings that were once used for restaurants, offices, hotels, spas, and or anything else that is classified non-essential have seen soaring vacancies. This is single handily sending the commercial property market into chaos. As vacancies soar, tremendous downward pressure is being put on almost every asset class tied to commercial real estate. The latest TREPP remittance data compiled by Morgan Stanley showed a quarter of all commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) could be on the verge of default. I am personally convinced that we are on the precipice of the greatest commercial real estate implosion in American history. As the dominoes tumble, it is going to send wave after wave of devastation through the financial industry, and it is going to make the subprime mortgage meltdown of 2008 look like child’s play. But at least bankruptcy lawyers will have plenty of work. Last week we learned that J.C. Penney filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and of course the bankruptcies that we have seen so far will just be the tip of the iceberg.

I think that politicians all over America are going to deeply regret overreacting to COVID-19, because nobody is going to be able to put the pieces back together now that our economic bubble has burst.  Sadly, very few people understood how shaky our debt-fueled economic “boom” was, and ultimately it didn’t take that much to push us into a new economic depression. And now every additional crisis that comes along is just going to escalate our economic troubles. This is going to be one very long nightmare, and there will be no waking up from it any time soon. Even before COVID-19 came along, homelessness had become a massive problem in many of our major cities, and now tent cities are rapidly multiplying in size. There is going to be so much economic pain in the months ahead, and it could have all been avoided if we had made much different choices as a nation. But we didn’t, and so now we all get to pay the price.

SCIENTISTS: Reaching Technological Singularity And GIVING BIRTH TO THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST THIS YEAR (IN 2020) Is In Sight; May Be Humanity’s Greatest… And LAST Accomplishment

May 17, 2020 by SkyWatch Editor

While futurist Ray Kurzweil predicted 15 years ago that the singularity—the time when the abilities of a computer overtake the abilities of the human brain—will occur in about 2045, Gale and his co-authors believe this event may be much more imminent, especially with the advent of quantum computing. If we look at the calculating capacity of computers and compare it to the number of neurons in the human brain, the singularity could be reached as soon as the early 2020s… The authors don’t know when the singularity will come, but come it will. When this occurs, the end of the human race might very well be upon us, they say, citing a 2014 prediction by the late Stephen Hawking. According to Kurzweil, humans may then be fully replaced by AI, or by some [NEPHILIM] hybrid of humans and machines… (READ MORE)

WITH THE FORCE OF 10 PLAGUES

Posted by Mark J. Dalton May 19, 2020

WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS FROM groundzeromedia.org

One of the age old arguments that fuels most conspiracy talk is that science and religion are both wrong in some respects. The reason is that everyone argues over religion and science based on his or her own beliefs. Inconvenient data is often ignored, suppressed, discredited or explained in some pre-digested sound bite that is often forgotten. People who claim that they have awakened or have seen the light are very much aware that all things are in an intermediate state between extremes. In the fundamental sense the extremes are birth and death. All that is in between is intermediate. You can divide it all up and break it all down into an eternal state of extremes and realize that everything that you believe and read is what is fashionable for the time and not necessarily the truth. However, that does not mean that buried in all of it isn’t a little pinch of reality. What is reality anyway? Can it be questioned? Yes, of course it can and that is the fundamental building block for scientific inquiry.

Scientific inquiry is a process of developing an explanation of a question in the natural world (or universe) by testing, investigating and collecting data that will either support or refute your original idea of what’s going on. Of course, many of us take for granted that science gives us facts, and so we do not question the programming of those so called “facts.” However, a healthy mind willing to question doesn’t mind getting into all of the messy scientific methods to prove the facts for themselves the process of testing ideas by collecting evidence. Unfortunately, those who wish to disassemble the scientific explanations already provided by some nebulous authorities are now being frowned upon and are now being called anti-science. The very scientific method used to question data provided by scientists is now being called anti-science, a label that should have every one of us worried. There are some people who see themselves as critical thinkers. They question some of the data that is being presented as “true” data by some nebulous body that are faceless scientists that give us their hypothesis on many of the most pressing matters that face us today, especially when they give us their doom models, and potential body counts with COVID-19. Even though we are vigilant in trying to stop the spread of the disease, what is most unfortunate is that even though it has been reported that we have flattened the curve – the technocrats now say that it is not enough. They have moved the goal post from flattening to decline. While the country as a whole has successfully flattened the curve, it has yet to show the extended period of decline necessary to declare ourselves out of the woods — a “squashing” of the curve. The same applies to most states. While a small number have sustained a long squashing period, most are still rising and falling day by day. They want us all to wait it out unto a vaccine is found. In the meantime, the first scary part our ordeal is over but there are those who are still willing to talk about things like relapse, continued social distancing and the idea that it will be with us forever. The flu and many other diseases have been with us forever, and they cause death but we have not stopped down or shut down normal life over it. It is not wise for scientists to keep telling people they are going to die when there are positive things happening. It is not wise to continue to push models that are not real time as if they are to discourage people into thinking that things will be normal. This is a psy-op and it will result in many people giving up and dying from despair and losing their will to live. Claude Davis assembled an essential list of “survival remedies” for those stuck at home with little to no access to healthcare. This is essential info for managing chronic health conditions in a “no doctor” situation. Before science fiction author Michael Crichton died, he was ostracized for a speech that he gave on the subject of Complexity Theory and Environmental management. Michael criticized environmental groups for failing to incorporate complexity theory in their doom mongering projections of the effects of global warming. Crichton boldly chastised those who inflated projected cataclysm from global warming and encouraged them to factor in the possibility that a complex system such as the ecosystem can and will be resilient. Crichton said that the psychological impact of fearing any predicted cataclysmic event can be far worse than the event itself. What got Crichton into trouble was his assessment of “Global Warming Fear Mongering.” He stated, “Authoritatively telling people they are going to die can in itself be fatal.Junk science and doomsayer fear mongering has thrown out the aspects of complexity theory and its effects on the environment and even diseases and catastrophes. No one even brings up the idea of resilience of systems and how healing processes and even antidotes show promise and that the human body is surprisingly resilient even when it faces its own mortality. It is all in how the information we get is framed – it is all about context – it is delivered with an agenda and even though you are doing the right thing by being prudent and ethical there comes a point where you have to stop and ask yourself why people are reacting the way they do to the news. When we hear of all of the special words and Orwellian speak with regard to COVID-19 there are a few words that seem to be overused “Uncertain times” “Unprecedented” and sometimes but not often “Biblical in Scope.” In 1928, W.I. Thomas came up with a very interesting theory. He said that “If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences.” This is what has eventually become known as Thomas Theorem. His idea was that an interpretation of a situation causes the action. This interpretation is not objective. Actions are affected by subjective perceptions of situations. Whether there even is an objectively correct interpretation is not important for the purposes of helping guide individuals’ behavior. If we are told, we live in uncertain times – then we most certainly we will second guess our decisions. If we are told that things are “unprecedented’ we are to assume that our situation has not happened before. Calling something “biblical” is the big one in my opinion because then you start thinking about prophecy, punishment and God’s wrath and whether or not it still exists like it did in the old testament. What it all boils down to is who delivers these magic words and how things are framed. Therefore, all prophecies, events and fulfillments must be declared fulfilled by an authority that most people can agree is objective. This also in my opinion means that we will never know a true fulfillment of prophecy. We will never be able to get an honest disclosure. There will always be the smirk and smug skeptic who will rule out anything that might even fulfill prophecy, declare a supernatural moment as valid and develop a faith based movement through time that allows for probabilities to manifest. There are things that people think and believe are in existence, but only because they have faith that it is true. Now if one has experienced an unexplainable event and they have no evidence of the strange event happening to them, does this mean it never happened to them? Is there a time where we can explain to people that absence of proof is not necessarily proof of absence? I have had a lot of listeners asking question about how COVID-19 seems to be a biblical punishment after I had commented about the scourge of cacodemons that are released during plagues. A listener called in to talk about Nergal, a lesser known Assyrian demon that many scholars have said had something to do with the 10 plagues of Egypt. In the late Babylonian astral-theological system Nergal is related to the planet Mars. As a fiery god of destruction and war, Nergal doubtless seemed an appropriate choice for the red planet, and he was equated by the Greeks to the war-god Aries. Nergal was depicted early on as either a rooster or a lion headed demon – but eventually was depicted as another bull horned demon. Again this demon or destroyer brings the image of the Exodus into the present as Aries is the Zodiac sign of the first born, which died in the 10th plague of Egypt. We have left Aries and are now in the sign of Taurus the Bull. Nergal and Taurus are in the image of the “bucranium” in the midst of the fire and smoke. The “bucranium” was an ancient symbol of the “beast.” The “beast” of course was a “horned god” associated with “Zeus,” “Aries” and “Taurus.” The Pleiades, is a seven-star cluster being part of the constellation of Taurus, the bull. The bull has always been symbolic of Baal, Baalim or Baalzebub. These deities were forbidden in both Old and New Testaments as objects of worship and identified as Satanic in nature and accompanied by plagues and death. Two of the horned icons of the zodiac are Taurus and Aries. It has been known throughout history that in the times of Taurus and Aries there is incredible loss of life and bloodshed. This can be recorded from the times of the Hebrew Passover, to the crucifixion to contemporary history. It was in this time the 10 plagues of Egypt were released and it is perhaps important in this time to point out that we are certainly witnessing a repeat performance on this planet – one that we can safely say is biblical in scope. 482 Year Old Secret To Surviving SHTF…

What if I told you that NASA rediscovered a superfood that’s been lost to history for the past 482 years? It’s packed with more nutrients than any other food out there and last even longer than pemmican. In fact, it’s so easy to store and cheap to make, you might never need another emergency food. If you read the Book of Exodus you may see some strange parallels to what is happening and unless someone takes the time to point this out – it can be lost in all of the projected death counts and urges to separate and hide from the destroyer virus. The first plague was water turning into blood. Hong Kong has seen 29 days with red tide sightings in the first three months of the year, more than any year in the same period over the last decade. While formations of algal blooms are indeed completely natural, scientists believe their frequency and persistence are anything but. Red tides are associated with the Pacific Northwest of where you have upwelling conditions that provide the nutrients to cause red tides. However, the frequency of waters turning to blood in other areas is an alarming trend.

Veterans Affairs Police Buy Riot Gear, Citing COVID-19 Pandemic

by Tyler Durden Mon, 05/18/2020 - 23:05

The federal government is ramping up new purchases of riot gear, citing the virus pandemic, comes at a time when the economy has plunged into recession, and high unemployment has led to increased anxieties across the country. The Intercept says a recent order made by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) shows "disposable cuffs, gas masks, ballistic helmets, and riot gloves, along with law enforcement protective equipment" were bought for federal police assigned to guard VA facilities. The order was quickly fulfilled under a special authorization "in response to the Covid-19 outbreak." The VA department operates 1,243 health care facilities, including 170 VA Medical Centers and 1,063 outpatient sites of care in the US, which serves millions of veterans. Redcon Solutions Group is the supplier of the latest contract. The Intercept says the firm received $1.6 in contracts to supply equipment for "Covid-19 screening security guard services." Other security firms have been awarded similar contracts, providing defensive equipment for federal police who guard VA buildings in San Francisco, Des Moines, and Fayetteville. The purchase order can be explained by the latest Inspector General (IG) report that said a shortage of VA workers and VA police created additional strain on the agency during lockdowns. The IG report said some VA facilities became the site of "COVID-19-related screenings," which meant the VA needed to beef up security. The Intercept notes federal police at VA facilities were not armed until after 2011, which was around the time the Pentagon started militarizing police forces across the country. "Between 2005 and 2014, VA police departments acquired millions of dollars' worth of body armor, chemical agents, night vision equipment, and other weapons and tactical gear," The Intercept said. Within the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, there was $850 million for the Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding program, which is a federal grant program that injects new capital into the nation's police forces. It has been used to cover overtime, increase personal protective equipment, and cover additional expenses related to the virus. The militarization of America's police forces shown below: President Trump signed an executive order in 2017 allowing police forces to receive military weapons. More recently, President Trump signed an executive order that allows activating up to one million troops. As to why the VA police would need riot gear is beyond anyone's guess. However, the rapid militarization of police forces over the last decade shows the federal government could be preparing for social unrest.

Why is Microsoft (Bill Gates) helming the JEDI?

May 17, 2020Pattern Is Prologue

Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure – Wikipedia

The Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract is a large United States Department of Defense cloud computing contract which has been reported as being worth $10 billion.[1][2] Companies interested in the contract included Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and REAN Cloud, part of Hitachi Data Systems.[3]  

Fact: Bill Gates’ mother was on the board of IBM.

Fact: Bill Gates father was head of Planned Parenthood and worked for Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory. Both organizations have deep eugenics history.

Fact: Bill Gates in not a medical doctor. (Remarkably though, he has been (P)iled (h)igh and (D)eep, from no less than seven universities.

Fact: Bill Gates said, “… if we do a really good job on vaccines …” that will help with the population “problem” he deems as negative.

Fact: Vaccines can be used to sterilize the host.

Fact: Alleged satanist witch (you be the judge if you think she’s just a “performance” artist as she claims) Maria Abramovic was cast as a furturist spelling out an avant-garde art performance ad for Microsoft? Did I mention this coincided with Good Friday?

“Innovators are not a product of happenstance. Instead, they are a by-product of the compounding effect of a series of early childhood influences. We are witnessing Childhoods End with the rise of anti-human Technocracy. With the helm of the technocracy guided by deep-seated tech corporations, all with arguably compromised leadership who serve interests that do not align with a Constitutional Republic’s Rule of Law. Does anyone care that Microsoft is at* the helm of the Pentagon’s JEDI cloud project? Does anyone care that the Amazon almost had the JEDI cloud contract? You would be naive to think that Bill Gates recent departure from Microsoft, somehow negates the potential for Deep State incursion and subjugation into all things pro-human. Why are our tax dollars being used to fund, infiltrate, annihilate all things pro-human, while simultaneously enduring the corporate-crony-capitalist system that has flourished by way of bogus “philanthropist” tax-free shelters for the Deep State super-rich? The race to AI by the tax-funded/tax-free tech giants, whether it’s go-it-alone or through alliance, is the road to humanity’s destruction. These mere words are my humble attempt to slay one giant by way of a blackstone-crystal-pen (iPhone). May Providence guide my sling hurled by the very web of their making. Editor note: *Technically, Microsoft won the contract. But, the day before JEDI went live, the project was put on hold, for review, per the protest of Microsoft competitors.

Regardless of who wins the contract. The American people lose. The whole lot of the big tech companies involved in the JEDI product, are at their root, evil. Masquerading as what they are not. And their end game does not have a human-driven future as their foundation or motive. Rather, they are deceivers, “deceiving and being deceived” as a means to gain their end. Regardless of whether Microsoft is awarded the JEDI contract. Microsoft’s multi-billion dollar breadth-and-depth of unfettered access to our military is nothing less than shocking. We would be remiss to think that software back door access to the Microsoft realm was not built into the architecture from inception. Furthermore, undisputed reigning mapping software production giant — ESRI enjoys unparalleled access to Federal government. Take note, ubiquitous ArcGIS mapping software sits on Microsoft architecture.

Who is watching the watchers, as the whole system has been compartmentalized, and factionalized on a need-to-know basis (mirroring the architecture of the very secret societies that formed America’s “intelligence” services.?

WHO inadvertently admits that vaccinations won’t work against coronavirus

05/18/2020 / By Ethan Huff

In trying to keep the pandemic going for as long as possible, it would seem, the World Health Organization (WHO) is insistent that developing natural immunity to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) may not be possible, and that society’s only hope is a vaccine. But if natural immunity is out of the question, then why would vaccine-induced immunity be any better? With roughly 310,000 confirmed deaths worldwide, the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to dominate news headlines, especially now that the Trump administration is getting the ball rolling on developing and releasing a fast-tracked vaccine. But nobody seems to be addressing the fact that if our own natural immune systems cannot fight the thing, then there is no way a vaccine will do anything other than needlessly cause adverse effects. In a recent announcement, the WHO stated that there is no solid proof to suggest that people who test positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) and recover develop natural immunity. They could still get re-infected again, the United Nations (UN) body insists – even as it continues to ignore the fact that a strain-specific vaccine would theoretically provide even less protection than natural immunity, if this is the case. “There is currently no evidence that people who have recovered from #COVID19 and have antibodies are protected from a second infection,” the WHO wrote in a statement. It’s about making you obedient, not safe The reason why the WHO is making a point of emphasizing the questionable immunity that comes following a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) infection is that the globalist entity does not want people refusing to following “safety guidelines” like mask-wearing and physical distancing. “People who assume that they are immune to a second infection because they have received a positive test result may ignore public health advice,” the WHO laments. Should a vaccine ever become available, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wants it to be distributed for “free” to everyone – meaning taxpayers will collectively foot the bill through their governments. This is great news for billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates, whose own vaccine development endeavors are almost guaranteed to reap windfall profits if “free” Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines eventually become a thing. The way that Gates, the WHO, and other pandemic extremists plan to keep the public strung along in anticipation of a magical “unicorn” vaccine is to continue fear-mongering about the threat of infection. One of the latest claims is that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) will never go away, which is sure to scare enough people into demanding whatever “warp speed” drug, injectable or otherwise, is presented as the cure. “It is important to put this on the table: This virus may become just another endemic virus in our communities, and this virus may never go away,” stated Dr. Mike Ryan, the “emergencies director” of the WHO, during a recent virtual press conference. Ryan then went on to compare the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) to HIV, stating that “HIV has not gone away, but we have come to terms with the virus,” adding that he does not believe that “anyone can predict when this disease will disappear.” Unbelievably, there are some 100 potential vaccine candidates for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) currently in development. But this means nothing in terms of the continued spread of the disease, assuming any of these vaccines even work, because there are already vaccines for other health conditions like the measles that have not been eradicated. More of the latest news about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is available at Pandemic.news. Sources for this article include: France24.com NaturalNews.com BBC.com

Listening to the Coronavirus ‘Experts’ Has Led to Death and Despair

Americans should pause and reflect on the lies they are being sold. Masks are just a form of psychological manipulation.

Adan Salazar | Infowars.com - May 18, 2020

On April 21st the Washington Post savaged Georgia governor Brian Kemp’s decision to begin opening his state after locking down for weeks. “Georgia leads the race to become America’s No. 1 Death Destination,” sneered the headline. The author, liberal pundit Dana Milbank, actually found the possibility of Georgians dying to be hilarious, suggesting that, “as a promotion, Georgia could offer ventilators to the first 100 hotel guests to register.” Milbank, who is obviously still getting paid while millions are out of work, sees his job as pushing the mainstream narrative that we must remain in fear and never question what “experts” like Dr. Fauci tell us.

Listening to the Coronavirus 'Experts' Has Led to Death and Despair

On April 21st the Washington Post savaged Georgia governor Brian Kemp’s decision to begin opening his state after locking down for weeks. “Georgia leads the race to become America’s No. 1 Death Destination,” sneered the headline. The author, liberal pundit Dana Milbank, actually found the possibility of Georgians dying to be hilarious, suggesting that, “as a promotion, Georgia could offer ventilators to the first 100 hotel guests to register.Milbank, who is obviously still getting paid while millions are out of work, sees his job as pushing the mainstream narrative that we must remain in fear and never question what “experts” like Dr. Fauci tell us. Well it’s been three weeks since Milbank’s attack on Georgia and its governor, predicting widespread death which he found humorous. His predictions are about as worthless as his character. Not only has Georgia not seen “coronavirus…burn through Georgia like nothing has since William Tecumseh Sherman,” as Milbank laughed, but Covid cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have seen a steep decline since the governor began opening the state. Maybe getting out in the fresh air and sunshine should not have been prohibited in the first place! In fact, as we now have much more data, it is becoming increasingly clear that the US states and the countries that locked down the tightest also suffered the highest death rates. Ultra locked-down Italy suffered 495 Covid deaths per million while relatively non-locked down South Korea suffered only five deaths per million. The same is true in the US, where non lockdown states like South Dakota were relatively untouched by the virus while authoritarian-led Michigan, New York, and California have been hardest hit. In those hardest hit states, we are now seeing that most of the deaths occurred in senior care facilitiesafter the governors ordered patients sick with Covid to leave the hospitals and return to their facilities. There, they infected their fellow residents who were most likely to have the multiple co-morbidities and advanced age that turned the virus into a death sentence. Will these governors be made to answer for this callous disregard for life? Yesterday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar admitted the obvious: “We are seeing that in places that are opening, we’re not seeing this spike in cases.” So why not open everything? Because these petty tyrants cannot stand the idea of losing the ability to push people around. Shutting down the entire United States over a virus that looks to be less deadly than an average flu virusparticularly among those under 80 who are not already sick – has resulted in mass unemployment and economic destruction. More Americans may die from the wrong-headed efforts to fight the virus than from the virus itself.

Americans should pause and reflect on the lies they are being sold. Masks are just a form of psychological manipulation. Many reputable physicians and scientists have said they are worthless and potentially harmful. Lockdowns are meant to condition people to obey without question. A nation of people who just do what they are told by the “experts” without question is a nation ripe for a descent into total tyranny. This is no empty warning – it’s backed up by history. Time to stand up to all the petty tyrants from our hometowns to Washington DC. It is time to reclaim our freedom.

ANOTHER FDA RULING ON CV-19 TEST KITS WHILE FAUCI INVENTS FAKE ILLNESSES- WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY ARE INFECTED!

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, May 17, 2020 - 11:31.

ANOTHER FDA RULING ON WHITE HOUSE CV-19 TEST KITS- WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY ARE INFECTED

America has just had the biggest fraud perpetrated upon the American people in world history, not American Whether one is validating a treatment efficacy or providing a more "reliable" claim for diagnosis, one needs to establish the false positive rate in order to determine whether or not effective treatment or accurate diagnostics falls within acceptable limits. And of course, consistency is needed in the testing process and that is established through multiple studies in which consistent results are obtained. In health testing, a margin of error of less than 5% is acceptable. Anything greater than this calls into question the validity of the diagnostics. On April 18, 2020, the FDA High Commissioner issued the following information: Fraud #1-The FDA Invalidates the Test Kits At question in this report is the efficacy of the diagnostic procedures being utlized by federal and state health officials in determining the true infection rate in the United States which can be used as a guide to impose restrictions upon the people of this nation. Sometimes in investigative reporting, we can use the words of the investigated to convict them of wrongdoing. This is certainly the case here. From the FDA in an April Statement from the Commissioner of Food and Drugs -Food and Drug Administration Stephen M. Hahn MD., in which the FDA admits that they have no intention of validating the testing numbers for COVID-19. Instead, the FDA admits that they will let the test developers validate their own testing reliability and validity.

...Recognizing that more flexibility was needed during a pandemic of this scale and speed, and incorporating feedback from the medical community, states and test developers, we have also provided regulatory flexibility for serological tests in an effort to provide laboratories and health care providers with early access to these tests with the understanding that the FDA had not reviewed or authorized (or “approved”) them, at least not initially, and these tests should not be used for diagnosing or excluding active SARS-CoV-2 infection.

What the above paragraph is telling the reader is that the FDA has a history of not fully validating the accuracy of test kits before using them in the field and gathering data from these unvalidated tests in which policy decisions will be based! In laymen's terms, the FDA has been guilty of violating the standard tenets of science when it comes to validating tests for a long time. Practice makes perfect and this is why the FDA and its partner in crime, the CDC are so adept at fooling the public.

Here is more damning self-statements from the same FDA report on test kits:

Specifically, last month, as part of our broader strategy, the FDA issued a policy explaining that FDA does not intend to object when developers of serological tests market or use their tests without prior FDA review where: 1) the tests are validated by the developer to determine that they are accurate and reliable, 2) notification of the developer’s validation is provided to FDA, and 3) the tests are labeled appropriately, including that they are not to be used as a sole basis for diagnosis. Our policy does not apply to at-home specimen collection or at-home testing because of the added challenges in assuring test accuracy that these pose. The policy does apply to tests that can be performed in patient care settings. Laboratories could validate tests they receive from commercial manufacturers and determine if they should be used in their facilities. Some laboratories have already done so or have developed their own serological tests...

Test results are not going to be determined by the FDA, but instead are going to be validated by the developer of the tests? The open invitation to fraud is obvious to anyone who has eyes to see. Then the FDA tries to beg themselves out of responsibility by saying the Labs can validate the test. Why should labs engage in a validating practice because testing for validation would happen AFTER the purchase of the test kits by the labs? In other words America, there is no oversight on determining whether these tests are measuring what they claim to measuring. This is like looking under the hood of the car AFTER you purchase it! And yet, these test numbers are reportedly daily in the mainstream media and provide governors and mayors with the ability to lockdown their jurisdictions as these despots violate the Constitutional rights of their citizens and the whole process of based on fake numbers!

In the face of this obvious cesspool of fraud, it is easy to conclude the following: here is financial motive to increase the CV-19 rates as it will lead to the need for more testing and more profits for the manufacturer of the tests. Both the FDA and the CDC are well-known as being "never-Trumpers" and commonly operate outside the oversight of the President. These are largely Democratic Party affiliated institutions with major conflicts of interest which has been validated on multiplel sites resulting from multiple documents. By allowing a test that could very well be a hotbed for false positives, the fake numbers could be used as a phony excuse to continue to lockdown and ruin the nation's economy, thus weakening the nation for economic collapse and even military invasion since the country's ability to defend itself in the long-term would be greatly impacted.

This policy in which numbers can be exaggerated for political gain is already in evidence in the practice of the CDC. The CDC announced that before a local community could progress to Phase One of the return to normalcy, the flu-like symptoms and the COVID-19 numbers must decrease from the information obtained from testing. The confabulation efforts on the part of the CDC is painfully apparent. The purpose for the fraud and using a testing kit that has not been validated for accuracy is also painfully obvious. California Governor Newsom has said the lockdown will stay in effect until the mandatory vaccines are ready. It is a well-established fact that the COVID-19 team has multiple conflicts of financial interest involving the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with the principal spokespeople for the COVID-19 group (eg Fauci and Birx).

Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey is did everything in his power to prolong his state's unconstitutional lockdown and he kept it up until his own party started to rebel.. Ducey sits on the Board of Directors for T-GEN which is partnering with the Gates people in the development a vaccine. A bad test, with multiple false positive will prove to be the impetus for not letting America out of its Big Pharma prison until the public accepts the mandatory vacccine. Further the testing kit fraud is consistent with CDC guidelines which allows doctors to engage in a totally unprofessional practice known as "presumptive diagnosis" in which the doctor simply presumes that the deceased expired because of COVID -19. This practice also inflates the numbers and provides local dictators the ability to win an election that they would be able to win without this greatly exaggerated crisis by making the public's lives miserable so they blame the existing President.

Fraud #2 -The CDC Invalidates the COVID-19 Test Kit for the White House

This past Friday, the FDA issued another press release and noted that many of the White House test kits are invalid and the previously reported numbers cannot be taken seriously in a case of the same song, second verse. Obviously, nobody knows what the CV-19 infection rate is, but these despots keep America locked down based on this self-admitted fraud and deceipt! Fauci, the leader of the "conflicts of interest" COVID-19 team, is finding news ways to thwart Trump's efforts to reopen the country.

As of yesterday, Fauci has created a new illness that he feels should keep the schools closed this next year. He says the illness is an off-shoot of COVID-19, but offers no proof. The CDC admits they do not have diagnostic criteria to define this illness. Nor is the illness listed on ICD which is an international coding system for all illnesses for diagnostic and insurance billing purposes. Yet, according to Fauci, this illness is enough to keep the country locked down and will keep the schools closed next year. Fauci Is Fabricating New Illnesses to Keep Schools Closed Until Bill Gates and Himself Release "the Vaccine" A smalll number of children have a rare and potentially deadly inflammatory condition that Fauci says is LIKELY linked to COVID-19. I cannot say if this illlness is a condition because as of today, it is not defined. However, one thing can be said with certainty, there is no proof of a link to CV-19

Just last week, this unknown and undefined condition was given a name. pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome, or PMIS, Nobody is denying that this is not a rare illness. However, it is not defined and does not meet the scientific conditions, as noted above, to receive any consideration with regard to public policy such as keeping schools closed. Yet, another fraud perpetrated on the American people which is wrecking our economy and will likely deny Trump a second term. Below, I comment on this absolute fraud. There is no ICD code for the illness which means it is nonexistent in the eyes of the internation medical community. Also, the CDC admits that they don't even have symptom list available. California is the Key to the Resistance Gavin Newsom has made a powerful enemy in Elon Musk. Musk has enough power and influence to make a difference in compliance rates of the population. I know for a fact that Musk has reached out to New California. He is looking for ways to oppose Newsom's lockdown. If California's lockdown were to end, the Deep State's control over this issue would crumble. Calfiornia is the key. Musk should travel to the White House and do a photo-op with the President. They should hold a joint news conference and tell the people of California to all go to the beaches on Memorial Day and open all businesses the day after. This overwhelming response would cripple Newsom and his minions ability to respond. Also, on June 1, 2020, Newsom loses the ability to pay the employees of California because he cannot account for hundreds of millions of dollars. Retirement accounts will go broke. There will be chaos in the street. Trump needs to order Barr to prosecute every Democratic mayor and Governor, and traitors like AZ Governor, Doug Ducey, under the 14th Amendment equal protection clause. Every blue state has Walmarts that are open and small businesses competitiors that are closed. This is a flagrant constitutional violation. The prosecutions need to be both criminal and civil. All Governors and mayors in lockdown states need to have their salaries frozen as well as the police that serve them. The money is sent to small business owners who are not open. A warning to Trump and any other entity that thinks that they are going to let loose with mandatory vaccines and create a second holocaust: Any attempt to deprive me of my constitutional rights to property, free travel and equal access to every part of American life because of my refusal to take a hastily prepared vaccine, from a despot, who paralyzed 300,000 kids in the third world, will be met with extreme prejudice and with maximum resistance on my part. Nobody, will dictate to this author what will be put into my body. I know I speak for tens of millions of Americans who will refuse to comply. I am now of Medicare age and have never been arrested or charged with a crime. I have not had a ticket since my early 20's. However, I will not comply and I will not accept any consequences for my refusal to participate in America's Second Holocaust.

Tropical cyclone Amphan (Bay of Bengal) named a “Super Cyclonic Storm” could become one of the most intense Category 5 on record in the North Indian Ocean and is on track to hit denseley populated areas

Joint Typhoon Warning Centre Tropical cyclone Amphan (Bay of Bengal) could become one of the most intense Category 5 on record in the North Indian Ocean A “Super Cyclonic Storm” – the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir Simpson scale is intensifying in the Bay of Bengal and is expected to smash into the coastal waters of Eastern India and Bangladesh tomorrow. Monster: NOAA Environmental Visualization Laboratory According to WMO, Tropical Cyclone Amphan (pronounced Um-Pun) is on track for densely populated areas at a time when restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic is complicating disaster management – and making it more necessary than ever before. The Indian Meteorological Department in New Delhi, which acts as WMO’s Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre for Tropical Cyclones, warned of a storm surge of about 4-5 meters above astronomical tide that is likely to inundate low-lying areas of West Bengal during landfall, and of about 3-4 meters for Bangladesh. It said Amphan would make landfall with a maximum sustained wind speed of 155-165 km/hour, gusting to 185 km/hour. Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi chaired a high-level meeting to review the response preparedness and the evacuation plan presented by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF). The tropical cyclone season in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea has two peaks, around May and around November and, in the past, the basin witnessed huge casualties. The deadliest tropical cyclone on record, the Great Bhola Cyclone in November 1970, killed at least 300,000 people in modern-day Bangladesh and led to the establishment in 1972, of a body in charge of the regional coordination mechanism for tropical cyclones, the WMO/ESCAP Panel on Tropical Cyclones Extensive and coordinated disaster risk reduction campaigns have, in recent years, limited casualties.

End Times Events Unfolding: Apocalyptic Sandstorm and Biblical Locust Plague Turn Day Into Night in Egypt and Iran – Gigantic hail Slams Mexico

By Strange Sounds - May 17, 2020

On the same day, a gigantic swarm of locusts invaded southern Iran and a massive sandstorm engulfed Aswan, Egypt, blocking the sun and turning day into night. A few days before giant hail slammed General Terán, Nuevo León State, Mexico Apocalyptic and biblical events are becoming the new normal. Strong earthquakes, devastating volcanic eruptions, gigantic hail, massive sandstorms and apocalyptic locust plagues. But what’s going on? Biblical locust plague in southern Iran A locust storm is currently engulfing southern Iran. There are so many swarming insects that they are blocking the sun and changing blue sky into a ‘dirt’ sky: Officials have called military to help fight the locust plague, that is threatening crops and livelyhoods of millions of people. Eight provinces ranging from southwest to southeast and eastern Iran are reporting locus storms.

Exodus 10:12: And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, [even] all that the hail hath left.

Apocalyptic hail slams General Terán, Mexico The major hailstorm occurred on May 13, 2020 in the municipality of General Teran, Nuevo Leon, north-eastern Mexico:

The large hail destroyed fruit trees and crops, damaged homes and cars and disrupted power supply. Isaiah 28:17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. The huge wall of sand engulfed the city of Aswan in souther Egypt on May 16, 2020. The sandstorm of biblical proportions changed day into night.

You Cannot Make This Stuff Up: Hypocritical Power-Hungry, Lock-Down Happy Democrats, Who Are Supporting The Violation Of Constitutional Rights, Are Now Worried About Possible Future Violations By The President

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

Sometimes you see something so completely outrageous that you believe it just has to be a parody or satire, but then to your shock you see it is all too real and true. That has been happening a lot lately.

Let me explain. We are seeing Democrat politicians claiming they are worried about possible future overreach on the part of the President, while ignoring and even supporting the actual overreach and violations of constitutional rights shown by liberal governors during the forced stay-at-home or lockdown orders. We are also seeing stories like the one about the CNN reporter, known for attempting to grandstand and who had criticized President Trump for not wearing a mask, then after the WH press briefing, waits until she thinks the cameras are off, then rips her mask off before then getting closer to her colleagues to get to the exit. HYPOCRISY, THY NAME IS LIBERAL Politico reports “Democratic governors hit with flurry of legal challenges to coronavirus lockdowns,” which comes after a Wisconsin judge recently struck down the Democrat governor’s “unlawful” stay-at-home orders.

The judge’s questions and assertions in his order are something that should be mimicked from all judges hearing these challenges across the country. “My question for you is, where in the Constitution did the people of Wisconsin confer authority on a single, unelected cabinet secretary to compel almost 6 million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don’t comply, with no input from the Legislature, without the consent of the people?” Bradley asked state Assistant Attorney General Colin Roth. “Isn’t it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work, among other ordinarily lawful activities?” she asked. These unconstitutional forced lockdowns have driven some people nuts, as one Detroit realtor has just been charged for “credible” death threats against the tyrannical, dictatorial wannabe, Gretchen Whitmer (dubbed wHitler), and her equally hated Attoreny General, Dana Nessel. Now these stories and these lockdown or stay-at-home orders being challenged in court are supported by liberals and Democrats, including the politicians and the media, along with one RINO (Republican In Name Only), who with no sense of self-awareness, are busy complaining how they are concerned about Trump’s “emergency powers,” during a national emergency. King, seven Democrats and one Republican sent a letter late last month to acting national intelligence director Richard Grenell asking to be briefed on any existing PEADs. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., wrote a similar letter to Attorney General William Barr and White House counsel Pat Cipollone “The concern is that there could be actions taken that would violate individual rights under the Constitution,” such as limiting due process, unreasonable search and seizure and holding individuals without cause, King said. King is an Independent that sides with Democrats on votes, but it is the very subjects that concern is expressed over, the same types of constitutional violations that Democrat governors across the nation have been guilty of for the last month-plus, yet we see nothing but support for them by these hypocrites.

Where was the due process for the woman being thrown face down and cuffed in front of her toddler because she was wearing a mask “improperly?” Where is the same concern about “individual rights” being respected as these governors shut down businesses by declaring they are the arbiter of what is and is not “essential,” costing millions of Americans their jobs? Where is the howling by Democrats about holding individuals without cause as law enforcement, on the orders of their elected leaders, arresting people just for going out to eat on Mother’s Day? They claim they are worried about possible future overreach and tyranny by president Trump while supporting the actual tyranny and overreach already being shown by Democrats and liberals. Hypocrisy, thy name is liberal.

(PLEASE HELP SUPPORT ANP: With Independent Media being censored on almost every internet platform, reader donations are what keeps websites like ANP up and running. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stefan & Susan.) WE MUST REMEMBER………. Now that states are starting to reopen, lifting restrictions, allowing businesses to open their doors again, as much because the protests have gotten stronger and bigger as anger builds and tensions grow, as to restart the economy, Americans need to remember how fast these governors were to crack down, put their boot to the necks of their constituents, while violating their guaranteed constitutional rights. No doubt if we see a resurgence of this virus, or even a new one hits, or pretty much any reason at all that liberals can use as an excuse to exercise their tyrannical muscles, they will. We must remember to not wait weeks or months to start protesting. Begin immediately, the day these corrupt and tyrannical politicians declare they have the right to violate our constitutional rights. We need to remember come November who deemed certain lives and jobs “non-essential.” Time to show them that they are now “non-essential.” We must remember that in 2020 the battles stopped being Republican versus Democrat and became a war of Freedom versus tyranny. We also absolutely must remember who those liberal snitches and “karens” are that think they should be ordering you around, calling 9-11 on you if you aren’t “social distancing” properly and basically proving once and for all that they really, really need to get a life. We must remember…………………………

Video below shows just how annoying those those freaks are. LANGUAGE WARNING: BOTTOM LINE – BE SMART BUT STAY FREE

We at ANP and other Independent Media websites were some of the first to encourage folks to get some masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and other protective and preventative gear, and to voluntarily stay away from groups of people if possible in order to stay healthy. Key word again…. voluntarily.

It is our right to determine what is and is not right for our situation. No job that puts food on the table and keeps a roof over our heads should ever be deemed “non-essential,” especially by those that do not have to worry about those issues. No politician, no matter the party, should ever be given the power to violate our constitutional rights. Be smart but stay free.

Hell-On Earth, We Have Come To The End Of Reality Now It’s “Tribulation”

May 18, 2020/StevieRay Hansen/8 Comments

Featured Story HNewsWire Logo Bottom Menu

Over the last several decades, have we ever seen a year start as strangely as 2020 has? Global weather patterns have gone completely nuts, large earthquakes are popping off like firecrackers, it looks like the plague of locusts in Africa could soon develop into the worst in modern history, and a massive plague of bats is severely terrorizing parts of Australia. On top of all that, African Swine Fever is wiping out millions upon millions of pigs around the globe, the H1N1 Swine Flu is killing people in Taiwan, there have been H5N1 Bird Flu outbreaks in China and in India, and the H5N8 Bird Flu has made an appearance at a poultry facility in Saudi Arabia. Of course, the coronavirus outbreak which is causing people to literally drop dead in the streets in China is making more headlines than anything that I have mentioned so far, and it could potentially turn into a horrifying global Man-Made pandemic that kills millions of people… Fairview Developmental Center near Los Angeles, where US govt. tried to house up to 50 infected coronavirus patients, has zero isolation rooms, no viral containment facilities, and no training for BSL-4 biohazards… The Fairview Development Center in Costa Mesa, California, where the US government just tried to quietly house 35-50 infected coronavirus patients, is a state-run facility for the mentally disabled, with a “shadow staff” of 200 people but only six patients according to official records. Notably, the center has no biocontainment facilities, and no staff trained in level-4 biohazards. It’s actually described as a kind of “prison” by critics who also call it “shoddy” and “run down,” with the “odor” of jail (see source below). It begs the question: Why would the United States Air Force attempt to relocate up to 50 infected coronavirus patients to a facility with no biocontainment capabilities, right in the middle of a high-density population area near Los Angeles? Why wouldn’t the Air Force just keep the infected patients at the Travis Air Force Base where they have containment? This idea of “exporting” infected patients into a high-density city near Los Angeles seems incredibly unwise, if not criminally negligent. Finally: How can there be up to 50 infected patients trying to be moved by the Air Force when the CDC says there are only 35 infected people in the entire nation? That question, of course, almost answers itself.

HNewsWire Logo Bottom Menu  The strange history of the Fairview Development Center

According to the Fairview Developmental Center newsroom: The Department of Developmental Services provides services and supports to individuals with developmental disabilities through state-operated developmental centers and community facilities. Although nearly shut down today, the center still has 200 staffers on its payroll (source), and it’s not clear what those 200 people are doing since there are only six patients remaining. (Your own theories are welcomed…) The center has a history of mysterious deaths and sexual abuse of residents, yet has achieved a 100% vaccination rate among all its residents over the many years it has existed. According to public records, over 43% of patients there are given “hypnotic drugs” and similar pharmaceuticals. The Fairview facility has 396 beds and has housed hundreds of mentally disabled individuals with autism, Down’s Syndrome, cerebral palsy and other developmental disorders. In 2016, a plan was unveiled to close the facility, but it remains semi-operational. Gov. Newsom is looking into transforming the entire thing into a kind of homeless camp. Last week, the U.S. government tried to secretly export 35-50 infected patients out of Travis Air Force Base and deposit them in the Fairview facility. City officials of Costa Mesa got word and filed an emergency lawsuit with federal courts in California, achieving a temporary restraining order prohibiting the transfer of patients there. The Fairview facility is located just south of Los Angeles, near Huntington Beach / Newport Beach. In their lawsuit, Costa Mesa officials warned the facility was right in the middle of a county of three million people. Mysterious deaths and abuse of patients “Eight people suffering from schizophrenia, severe intellectual disabilities, and other debilitating conditions died at Fairview Developmental Center in Costa Mesa between 2002 and 2011, at least partly because of neglect or lack of supervision, newly released documents show.” OCregister.com: In 2002, a 30-year-old, intellectually disabled woman known to flail about in her sleep was found dead of asphyxiation, dangling from her bed. She had fallen through a gap between the mattress and a side rail, according to a report written by the California Department of Public Health.

The same year, a 34-year-old epileptic man with profound intellectual disabilities, ADHD, and a documented history of eating non-food items died after swallowing a 13-inch shoelace and a brown plastic bag. In 2007, a 25-year-old man plagued by seizures drowned in a bathtub. The reports also reveal dozens of cases of abuse, negligence, and lack of supervision that led to injuries, falls, escapes, and sexual abuse, including a Fairview employee in 2001 twice having sex with a 17-year-old girl with an intellectual disability. For that incident, the Department of Public Health fined Fairview $2,700.

The 16-year-old girl was discovered lying on the floor of her bedroom. Her attacker later told a staffer that she had sneaked into the girl’s room and smothered her with a pillow, wrapped a radio cord around her neck, then returned to place a plastic bag over her head. All these mysterious deaths were covered up by California state bureaucrats and were only released after a three-year court battle fought by the Center for Investigative Reporting. Patients at Fairview died from superbugs and infections… and this is where the Air Force wants to place coronavirus patients? Most disturbingly, the Fair view facility has a history of patient deaths related to superbugs and infections.  As explained on their website, Revealnews.org: One teenage resident smothered and eventually killed another teenager while the employee in charge skipped her normal rounds. A 48-year-old man with a history of a weak immune system died of septic shock when a facility doctor didn’t treat him for MRSA – a highly contagious, dangerous, and antibiotic-resistant staph infection – even though his lab work showed he had it. Another resident suffered for months before succumbing to an infection from a misplaced feeding tube that doctors, nurses, and care staff all failed to notice. It begs the obvious question: How is a facility that can’t handle MRSA going to handle the COVID-19 Wuhan coronavirus biological weapon that spreads through the air in “stealth” mode and is carried by people who show no symptoms whatsoever? As Revealnews.org also explains, the abuse of patients goes far beyond mere medical negligence: The incidents in the documents ranged from death to verbal abuse. One nurse who noticed a resident with his hand down another resident’s pants called him a “mother fucking faggot” who needed “to be shipped out of here.” Patients were reported to have been shoved, grabbed by the hair, kicked while on the toilet, marched down the hall naked, doused with ice water, and sexually abused. On an October morning in 2005, a staff member found 25-year-old resident vomiting blood in his bed at the Sonoma Developmental Center. In his vomit, the staff found a plastic-handled cotton swab used for dry mouth. They immediately transferred him to an outside hospital. It turned out that he had swallowed several swabs. One punctured his esophagus, then his aorta, on its way down, causing massive internal bleeding. Both the autopsy and the public health department’s investigation suggest that caregivers left the swabs in his mouth. He died 17 hours later. A future coronavirus quarantine prison camp? A retired police officer from San Diego describes the facility as a “prison camp” with prison-like conditions. Via the OC Register: Larry Ingraham, whose brother died in Fairview in 2007 from a broken neck, wants the state to shutter the developmental centers. “It’s like a prison,” said Ingraham, a retired police officer from San Diego. “I’ve worked in the jails; it’s like a jail, a county jail. It had the odor of a county jail. It was shoddy. It was run down,” Ingraham said of Fairview. Perhaps that’s why the Air Force chose it for a coronavirus “quarantine,” but without any isolation facilities, it will be no more effective as a quarantine facility than the Diamond Princess cruise ship. The fact that the U.S. Air Force was trying to house 50 infected coronavirus patients at this facility should send shivers down the spine of anyone living in Southern California. But remember, the CDC says there are no “community outbreaks” because they aren’t testing for community outbreaks. And according to the CDC’s published testing guidelines, there will never by any confirmed outbreaks in America, since the CDC prohibits the testing of any American who is infected by another person in America who hasn’t been to China. Harvard Professor Says 40-70% Of People Worldwide Will Be Infected With Covid-19

Harvard epidemiology professor Marc Lipsitch says that the coronavirus will not be containable and that 40-70 of people worldwide will be infected. In an article entitled You’re Likely to Get the Coronavirus, the Atlantic explains how the coronavirus is particularly dangerous because it may cause no symptoms at all in many carriers of the infection. According to Harvard epidemiology professor Marc Lipsitch, this contributes to his prediction that coronavirus “will ultimately not be containable.” “Lipsitch predicts that, within the coming year, some 40 to 70 percent of people around the world will be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19,” reports the Atlantic. The professor clarifies that this doesn’t mean all of those victims will become seriously ill and that “many will have mild disease, or maybe asymptomatic.” Lipsitch’s “very, very rough” estimate (banking on “multiple assumptions piled on top of each other”) was that 100 or 200 people in the U.S. were infected. That’s all it would take to seed the disease widely… As The Atlantic noted, even if Lipsitch’s estimates were off by orders of magnitude, they wouldn’t likely change the overall prognosis. “Two hundred cases of flu-like illness during flu season – when you’re not testing for it – is very hard to detect,” Lipsitch said. “But it would be really good to know sooner rather than later whether that’s correct, or whether we’ve miscalculated something. The only way to do that is by testing.” However, given the increasingly stringent measures being taken outside of China to stop the spread of the virus, including in Italy where people are being prevented from leaving towns, one wonders how severe the panic will be if there is a massive global pandemic. As we highlighted earlier, with over 220 cases reported in Italy, store shelves in some areas of the country are already beginning to empty. Meanwhile, a World Health Organization adviser says that coronavirus could be the widely feared ‘Disease X’ that experts have been warning about for years. “Whether it will be contained or not, this outbreak is rapidly becoming the first true pandemic challenge that fits the Disease X category, listed to the WHO’s priority list of diseases for which we need to prepare in our current globalized society,” wrote Prof Marion Koopmans. Everything is right on schedule and, now, the time is come to remove one of the final obstacles standing in the way of a New World Order: The United States Constitution – even if, over the course of many decades, it has already been greatly diminished by the B.E.A.S.T. system; or, more specifically, Bullshit Emerging As Strategic Totalitarianism (B.E.A.S.T.).

Google, No More Electronic Prison: You will see many changes on HNewsWire, one of those changes will be to eliminate Google Ads, the other difference, HNewsWire will NOT post videos on YouTube, it is no longer a question about overreach by the un-godly big tech tyrants. There is no question Big Tech can and will persecute any opposing opinion, they will demoralize, sideline truth seekers and those that speak the truth. The People’s Blood is on big tech and mainstream media’s hands. Censorship has NOT worked for thousands of years, their evil tactics will not work now, history proves me right, so we watch the drama play out between good (GOD) and evil ( Big Tech MSM ), God has never failed his people, and God will not fail this time…

StevieRay Hansen The truth is that all of the warnings of alleged ‘conspiracy theorists’ have turned out to be correct The word translated “pestilence” is often translated as “plague” or “disaster” …

The Bible predicts the rise of this type of societal control within the frightening prophecies about the Antichrist, the final world empire called the Beast, and the final economic system using the Mark of the Beast. The electronic tyranny of technocracy that is now being developed and implemented throughout the world is in preparation for the Antichrist’s rise to power. As we see this final empire taking shape in our day, we can know for certain that the End Times is upon us and the Coming of Christ is drawing near. Now is the time to turn away from sin and evil and believe in Jesus before it is too late!

The Un-Godly — Those That Suppress the Truth, the social media giants built multi-billion dollar empires by giving everyone a voice, but now that they have such a dominant position on the Internet they have decided that many prominent conservative voices should be completely silenced. In order for sin to work, there has to be a “suppression of the truth.” The World leaders Are Having Trouble With The Truth, and The World Has been “Quarantined” Tribulation Is Here… Thousands of People Are Basically Trapped in a Petra Dish of Disease Demon Virus  Asked about the virus while traveling abroad last week, Trump said: “We have it totally under control”. In a separate Twitter posting, he offered reassurance but scant detail for his confidence. By Associated Press Updated On: 05:53 PST, Jan 31, 2020 Yes, are we seeing a slowdown in new virus cases reported this morning. We now have 31,481, which does show a day-to-day decline away from an exponential rate of growth if accurate. Yet for those market participants merrily saying this is “just the flu” (there are some) we also have 4,824, 15% of the total, in critical condition and 638 deaths. Further, one arguably cannot measure the death-rate of any virus against the number of currently sick people: you surely measure it against those who eventually recover vs. those who don’t. Given we have 1,563 who have recovered vs. 638 dead (and 4,824 critical) that is a worrying ratio of 29% dead as an end-outcome, which is right up there with the MERS virus from a few years ago – although, yes, there is the real reason for us all to hope that number will decline sharply as milder cases will be fully curable. But the simple flu this is not.

WASHINGTON: Wuhan coronavirus: Donald Trump says deadly outbreak ‘very well under control’ as WHO declares a global emergency. President Donald Trump regaled a friendly New Jersey campaign crowd with his thoughts about impeachment, the economy, the border wall, local politics, and much more. But he was conspicuously quiet on January 28 about one big issue keeping much of the globe on pins and needles: the spread of a deadly new type of coronavirus. It has killed more than 170 people in China, sickened thousands more there and led to a handful of confirmed cases in the US, including the first US case of person-to-person transmission reported on by health officials. The State Department on January 30 advised all US citizens against traveling to China. Trump, a self-described germaphobe, generally has discussed the virus in broad terms, but he offered some of his most extensive comments on the issue to date during an appearance on January 30 at a Michigan manufacturing plant. “Hopefully, it won’t be as bad as some people think it could be, but we’re working very closely with them (Chinese) and with a lot of other people and a lot of other countries, he said. “We think we have it very well under control.” The Birth Pains Are Growing Stronger….

One of the signs of ruling class collapse is when they can no longer enforce the rules that maintain them as a ruling class. When the Romans started making exceptions to republican governance, it was a matter of time before someone simply decided the rules no longer applied to them. Perhaps the robot historians will consider Obama our Marius or Sulla. Maybe that person is in the near future. Either way, the rule of law is over and what comes next is the rule of men. “Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.” as in Nancy Pelosi (D-San Fran-feces) Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry, and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man. The watchman does not confuse truth with consensus. The Watchman does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public. Everything is right on schedule and, now, the time is come to remove one of the final obstacles standing in the way of a New World Order: The United States Constitution – even if, over the course of many decades, it has already been greatly diminished by the B.E.A.S.T. system; or, more specifically, Bullshit Emerging As Strategic Totalitarianism (B.E.A.S.T.). They are tolerant of everything except dissenting values and opinions — meaning, of course, they are tolerant of nothing that matters, only themselves.” The Watchman does not confuse truth with consensus. The watchman does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority.

Google Erases the Existence of Those Who Speak Unwelcome Truths

For the tech giants, 1984 is an instruction manual.

Mon May 18, 2020 Robert Spencer

Daniel Greenfield, the peerless Shillman Fellow and FrontPage writer, tweeted the news on May 7: “Google just erased my Sultan Knish blog and Front Page Mag articles from the first pages of results for my name doubt very much this is accidental.” I did too, so I checked for myself, and sure enough: a Google search for “Robert Spencer” now does not bring up Jihad Watch, where most of my writing outside of books has been published for the last seventeen years, but it does give you defamatory and distorted attack pieces from the far-Left Southern Poverty Law Center and the Saudi-funded Bridge Initiative, and nothing that doesn’t portray me and my work in the most unfavorable possible light. This latest example of the tech giants’ determination to silence all dissenting voices reveals one often overlooked fact: they are desperately afraid. Google is so afraid of Jihad Watch, in fact, that it is going to great lengths to make you think that the site (which you can find here) doesn’t exist at all. Several years ago, under pressure from the Texas-based imam Omar Suleiman, Google changed the algorithm for its search results so as to bury anything critical of Islamic jihad violence or Sharia oppression of women. Jihad Watch, which for years had been the first result in a Google search for “jihad” (back when Google searches were based solely on relevance and the popularity of the site), fell off the front page of “jihad” searches. Now Google has gone even farther to make sure you don’t see Jihad Watch. Just this morning, I was looking for an old Jihad Watch article from a few years ago that I needed for a citation, and I entered an exact phrase from that article into the Google search bar. What came back were two sites where the article had been republished, but no indication that it had ever been at Jihad Watch at all. In George Orwell’s dystopian novel of a totalitarian society, 1984, to which far more people refer than have actually read the book, the dissenter Winston Smith’s job in the Ministry of Truth involves erasing from all historical records any mention of people who have been declared “nonpersons.” Foes of the regime aren’t just vilified. Their very existence is erased. Dissent is easy to control if all record of it ever having been enunciated is eradicated, and Google has apparently taken a page from Orwell’s book. Of course, Jihad Watch is one of the least of the concerns of Big Tech. They’re erasing all manner of people who dissent from the Leftist agenda. Greenfield notes that “Google controls 80% of search. That means it controls what the internet looks like. And it’s continuing to erase conservatives from the internet. I’m just the latest victim. Its censorship and creepy surveillance have reached new heights during the pandemic.” And help may be on the way: according to the Wall Street Journal, “Both the Justice Department and a group of state attorneys general are likely to file antitrust lawsuits against Alphabet Inc.’s Google—and are well into planning for litigation, according to people familiar with the matter. The Justice Department is moving toward bringing a case as soon as this summer, some of the people said. At least some state attorneys general—led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican—are likely to file a case, probably in the fall, people familiar with the matter said.” Another illustration of how brazen the tech giants have become with their censorship came on early Saturday morning, when President Trump retweeted a Michelle Malkin video about tech censorship, with the comment: “The Radical Left is in total command & control of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Google. The Administration is working to remedy this illegal situation. Stay tuned, and send names & events. Thank you Michelle!” In a clumsy but sinister confirmation of the urgency of this problem, Twitter then deleted the Malkin video. Daniel Greenfield is right: “the future of free speech is at stake.” I’m honored that the multimillionaire millennials at Google are so afraid of me and my little website that they have erased all trace of me except for Emmanuel Goldstein-like denunciations, but ultimately the First Amendment will become a dead letter if the tech giants are allowed to get away with sending dissenters down the memory hole in this way. And that will mean a nightmare of authoritarianism descending upon the country. The Administration needs to act on this, and fast. If Biden or Hillary or Bernie or whichever septuagenarian totalitarian wins in November, there won’t be another chance to save America as a free society. Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. He is author of 19 books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad.

American believers see coronavirus as sign from God to change ways

By Vincent Barone May 16, 2020 | 3:00am

God is using the coronavirus to tell us something, a new poll shows most religious Americans believe.  Two-thirds of U.S. residents who believe in God see the pandemic as a divine message urging us to change our lifestyles, according to a poll by the University of Chicago Divinity School and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The poll found 31% of Americans who believe in God feel “strongly” that the virus is God’s way of telling us to “change how we are living,” with another 31 percent believing so “somewhat,” according to the poll. Evangelical Protestants are most likely to feel strongly that the virus contains deeper religious meaning, with 43 percent expressing that belief. Just 28 percent of both Catholics and mainline Protestants felt the same. “When people get asked about God, they often interpret it immediately as power,” said Kathryn Lofton, a professor of religious studies at Yale University, who helped design the new poll. “And they answer the question saying, ‘Here’s where the power is to change the thing I experience.’” Believers are also turning to God for protection. More than half of responders — 55 percent — believe at least somewhat that God would protect them from falling ill. And African Americans were most likely among racial backgrounds sampled to believe the virus was a sign from God to change. Forty-seven percent say they feel that strongly, compared with 37% of Latino and 27% of white Americans responders to the survey. The small sample size means only a few people from certain religions were sampled. The poll sample included 28 Protestants, 20 Roman Catholics. one Muslim and one Jew. With Post Wires

Christen Limbaugh Bloom: God using coronavirus crisis to touch hearts of individuals, create revival in church

Christen Limbaugh Bloom By Christen Limbaugh Bloom | Fox News

My all-time favorite writer is C.S. Lewis. He wrote: “The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become – because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be . . . It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.” I love this insight because it directly opposes the thought that God expects His followers to be “perfect” robot-like clones. Lewis points us to the fact that God is actually the inventor of individuality. He created each of us with unique personalities and gifts meant to be used to further His kingdom. Nice thought, but why does our individuality matter? What does God get out of it? In his book “You the Leader,” Pastor Phil Pringle highlights that all through the Bible and human history, God has used individuals to impart His godly vision throughout the world in order to create positive change. He referenced Moses leading the Israelites out of slavery and John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus, stating, "When we follow great leaders, their vision becomes ours. We start to see what they see, and we begin to own a vision larger than ourselves." Pringle reminds us every great leader must first go through a period of trial.

The entire world is facing an intense trial right now as we try to mitigate the potential harm from an extremely contagious and invisible virus. We now have a heightened awareness of the power of unseen dangers – and my prayer is that this revelation will help people have a better understanding of another invisible enemy – one that has been attacking us much longer than the coronavirus. I’m referring to a spiritual enemy God has warned humans about since the beginning of time. The Apostle Paul said of this adversary: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12). Paul was trying to explain we should not view people as our enemies, but instead recognize it is in fact a spiritual force of evil who creates disharmony and struggle between us. How does this happen? How does the evil one get a foothold in our lives? There are honestly countless tactics the enemy uses against us – but I believe one of the most successful methods is creating a spiritual “desert” in our hearts. This happens when we believe things like, “Living by God’s standard is outdated and impossible” or “God is too busy to worry about my problems.” It’s a sad reality that many people don’t even attempt to have a relationship with God because it seems too daunting. Far too often, people give up before they’ve even really begun their spiritual journeys, and they pretend God doesn’t exist – because that seems easier than answering to someone who they believe is constantly judging them. But the truth is, those feelings about God are actually lies spoken to us by our spiritual enemy who ruthlessly attempts to skew our vision of God’s loving nature.

Though this can feel discouraging, it’s important to remember God is constantly on a mission to correct people’s misconceptions about Him. Over the past month, I’ve heard many pastors say they believe God is specifically using this unique time in history to create a revival in the church by softening people’s hearts. I agree with them. Too many people are trapped in spiritual deserts; some believers even slip into this gray area of disbelief and loss of connection with Jesus. But I am confident although God didn’t cause this virus, He is using it to pour His living water into the hearts of countless individuals, creating streams in their spiritual deserts. And by doing this, God transforms these individuals into spiritual “springs” so to speak. Because when we accept Jesus for who He truly is, we are filled with His all-consuming and powerful love, and this love inevitably flows out from us to others from Jesus – the source.  By sprouting up new “springs,” God is creating more opportunities for others to come into contact with His living water of love and salvation. So you see, each individual person matters in God’s grand plan. And though we are all experiencing the same global crisis, I believe God is bringing unique revelations to every single human heart, leading them to a higher calling. “But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (John 4:14).

Are Islamists Undermining the West?

By William DiPuccio May 17, 2020

Is it possible for Islam to undermine and replace the core values of Western civilization? By core values, I'm referring to deeply held principles such as inalienable rights, religious and personal freedom, equality of the sexes, free speech, and the separation of religion and state. According to some, even posing this question places you in the company of conspiracy theorists and "Islamophobes." Perhaps that accusation would be true if we assumed that all Muslims are engaged in an effort to bring North America and Europe under Muslim rule. But, Islam is not a monolithic faith and many Muslims who live in the West have internalized Western values. Some have even championed the cause of human rights within Islam. There is, however, a substantial minority of Muslims in our midst who adhere closely to the teachings of traditional Islam (albeit with some modern adaptations) and believe that every nation must submit to Allah's rule. They seek to do this by gradually implementing some form of sharia in society, one precept at a time, blurring the line between mosque and state. In their view, the only legitimate form of government is an Islamic theocracy ruled by a caliph- -that is, a successor to Muhammad. These Muslims are often referred to as "Islamists." Based on an analysis of surveys conducted by Pew Research, globally, over two-thirds of Muslims are Islamists. But, how many Islamists are there in North America, and do they really pose a threat? There are no direct polling numbers for measuring Islamism, but using responses to individual questions from different polls, we can approximate the number of Islamists. According to a 2017 poll by Pew Research, 31% of U.S. Muslims believe there is only one true way to interpret their religion and 38% believe that traditional understandings of Islam are all they need. A 2015 Canadian poll showed more dramatic results: 42% of Canadian Muslims said that Islam is "irreconcilable" with the West. Even more telling, is a 2012 poll by Wenzel Strategies.1 In that poll, 73% of American Muslims said that if the Constitution and sharia law conflict in any way, a Muslim should follow the Constitution (20% were not sure). But, when asked if sharia should be the supreme law of the land, 32% agreed. The Wentzel poll also revealed that, 58% of Muslim-Americans believe that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should not be permitted under the First Amendment, and 46% say that those who engage in such criticism should face criminal charges. Since specific questions relating to sharia and free speech are a more reliable gauge for identifying Islamist behavior than broad philosophical questions which are open to multiple interpretations, we can conclude, based on the re Wenzel poll, that 32% to 58% of American Muslims are Islamists (assuming this poll is reliable). This aligns with the 42% of Canadian Muslims who said that Islam is "irconcilable" with the West, and with the 38% of Muslims, identified in the Pew poll, who believe that traditional understandings of Islam are all they need. What this means is rendered academic: Take nearly any mosque, any Muslim neighborhood, or any Muslim demographic group, and it is virtually certain that a percentage of the sample population will work towards the implementation of sharia law in society and, in rare cases, even commit violent acts in the name of Islam. "But," someone will object, "there were only 3.45 million Muslims in the U.S. in 2017, comprising 1.1% of the population. Even if half of U.S. Muslims are Islamists, we are talking about a population group numbering less than 2 million out of 326 million. Such a small population of Muslims, no matter how determined, would have little chance of making headway against the prevailing culture." The mistaken assumption behind this objection is that a group's influence is proportional to its numbers. Yet, consider the dramatic, legal and social gains made by gays and lesbians who comprise, at most, 4.5% of the population. Same-sex marriage, unthinkable 20 years ago, is now the law of the land. Though transgenders, made up only 0.6% of the population in 2016, their cause is highlighted in the media everyday and their participation in society has garnered substantial popular and legal support in the last few years. The same is true for Islamists. Their small numbers belie their influence. In my book, Can Islam Transform the West?, I present several lines of evidence to support this, including the Islamist impact on free speech, their antisemitism, their propagation of hate, and their influence on Congress and American universities. In this article, we will consider only one of these elements: Free speech. Free speech is a right guaranteed under the First Amendment. Traditional Islam does not have such a right. In fact, Islamic blasphemy laws prescribe severe punishment and even execution for those who criticize Islam or Muhammad. A substantial number American Muslims have been influenced by these blasphemy laws. According to the 2012 Wentzel poll, mentioned above, though 90% of Muslims in America agree with the First Amendment, 58% also believe that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should not be permitted under the First Amendment, 46% agree that those who criticize or parody Islam in the U.S. should face criminal charges (17% not sure), and 12% agree that those who criticize or parody Islam should be put to death (9% not sure). The poll also revealed that 43% of Muslim-Americans believe that U.S. citizens do not have a right to evangelize Muslims (28% not sure).

Though most Muslims do not engage in terrorism, a number of terrorist threats and attacks on Western targets have been provoked by words or pictures which some Muslims found offensive. The most infamous of these confrontations is the Charlie Hebdo massacre of 2015 in which 12 staff members of the French magazine were gunned down in retaliation for publishing satirical images of the Prophet Muhammad. That same year, two terrorists were killed in an attempted attack at an exhibit in Garland, Texas which featured cartoon images of Muhammad. Islamists have come to realize that they don't need to change one jot or tittle of the U.S. Constitution or European human rights laws to suppress criticism of Islam, they only have to render those rights ineffective. Their plan is working. Following the Charlie Hebdo attack, 42% of the French people wanted the press to avoid publishing cartoons that would upset the Muslim community. Overall, the mainstream, Western media, both in Europe and the U.S., have responded to such attacks with fear and self-censorship. You will find little, if any, serious criticism of Muslims and Islamic beliefs in these sources, much less cartoons or satire about Muhammad. Unwittingly, nearly every major media outlet and publisher- -both electronic and print, both popular and academic- -are acting in dutiful compliance to traditional Islam's blasphemy laws. The impact of Islamism on free speech goes beyond the media. Islamists have aligned themselves with Progressives in Europe and America to suppress criticism of Islam by labeling nearly all criticism, even reasoned criticism, as "Islamophobic, racist, and bigoted." Forsaking the time-honored tradition of free speech in the West, hate speech laws in Europe and Canada, along with speech codes on social media, and in businesses and universities here in the U.S., have made it more difficult or virtually impossible to criticize Islam without incurring considerable social, financial, and even legal consequences (e.g., legal harassment, fines). Facebook and YouTube now routinely ban, financially punish, or suspend critics of Islamism including prominent ex-Muslims like Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

In our society there is a collective punishment for those who criticize Islam. Critics risk being defamed, labeled as bigots, boycotted, harassed, threatened, and even physically attacked. This is how Islamic blasphemy laws are entering the West through the back door. Free speech rights are suffering the death of a thousand cuts. To repeat the question I posed at the outset: Is it possible for Islam to eventually undermine and replace the core values of Western civilization? The answer, based on the evidence presented here, is that it is not only possible, but it is happening in plain sight. And, it will continue as long as we empower Islamists by our ignorance, indifference, and lack of courage.

Coronavirus: Brazil overtakes Spain and Italy as new cases grow

17 May 2020

Brazil has overtaken Spain and Italy to become the country with the fourth-largest number of confirmed coronavirus infections in the world. Officials on Saturday reported 14,919 new cases in the past 24 hours, taking the total to 233,142. Only the US, Russia and the UK have higher numbers. The death toll in Brazil over 24 hours was 816, bringing the total to 15,633 - the world's fifth-highest figure. Experts warn that the real figure may be far higher due to a lack of testing. The mayor of the country's most populous city, São Paulo, warned on Sunday that the city's health system could collapse. Bruno Covas said the public hospitals in the city reached 90% capacity for emergency beds, with demand still growing. Mr Covas said he was in crisis talks with the state governor over introducing a strict lockdown to try to slow contagion before hospitals ran out of space in an estimated two weeks' time.

Health experts in Brazil have warned that the real number of confirmed infections in the country may be far higher than the official records, due to a lack of testing. "Brazil is only testing people who end up in the hospital," Domingo Alves from the University of São Paulo Medical School told AFP news agency last week. "It's hard to know what's really happening based on the available data. We don't have a real policy to manage the outbreak," he said. Mr Alves is one of the authors of a study that estimated the real number of infections was 15 times higher than the official figure. Brazil's far-right president Jair Bolsonaro has been strongly criticised both at home and abroad for his handling of the country's escalating coronavirus crisis. Mr Bolsonaro continues to oppose lockdown measures. He has downplayed the virus as "a little flu" and has said the spread of Covid-19 is inevitable. In April, Mr Bolsonaro joined protesters demanding that lockdown restrictions be lifted. He says the restrictions are damaging the country's economy, bringing unemployment and hunger. Last week, Brazilian Health Minister Nelson Teich resigned after less than a month in the job. Mr Teich stepped down after he had publicly criticised a decree by Mr Bolsonaro allowing gyms and beauty parlours to reopen. Mr Teich's predecessor was sacked after disagreeing with Mr Bolsonaro. In the face of mixed messages, and with little government help at hand, not enough Brazilians are staying at home to slow the spread of the virus, the BBC's Americas editor Candace Piette says. What's the latest in the wider region?

Brazil, by far the largest country in Latin America, has for several weeks been at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak. Latin America and the Caribbean have recorded more than 500,000 infections, with Brazil accounting for nearly 50% of the cases.

Coronavirus pandemic: Tracking the global outbreak

Mexico has recently seen a spike in new infections, while Ecuador saw its health system collapse in April. The sharp rise in cases in Latin America has led the World Health Organization (WHO) to say the Americas are currently at the centre of the pandemic. In March, the WHO had labelled Europe the "epicentre of the pandemic" but the region is now slowly beginning to ease restrictions brought in to slow the spread of the virus.

At least 620 Nigerian Christians killed so far in 2020 by Boko Haram, Fulani: NGO report

By Samuel Smith, CP Reporter

A Nigerian civil society organization estimates that about 620 Christians were killed and hundreds of homes, as well as churches, were damaged in Nigeria since the beginning of the year as attacks carried about by Fulani radicals and Islamic terrorists continue. The Anambra-based nongovernmental organization International Society for Civil Liberties & Rule of Law, headed by Christian Emeka Umeagbalasi, released a statement Thursday highlighting the impact of the atrocities committed by terrorists across Nigeria thus far in 2020. The report, based on days of forensic research, warns that militant Fulani herdsmen roaming the country’s rural Middle Belt states and terrorists affiliated with Boko Haram and the Islamic State West Africa Province in Nigeria’s northeast region have “intensified their anti-Christian violence.” The group reports the killing of “no fewer than 620 defenseless Christians and wanton burning or destruction of their centers of worship and learning" in 2020. According to the statement, Fulani radicals are responsible for killing over 470 people in the first four-and-a-half months of 2020. The group reports that Fulani killed 140 Christians from the beginning of April until May 14. Meanwhile, Boko Haram is believed to have killed 150 Christians since January. “The atrocities against Christians have gone unchecked and risen to alarming apogee with the country’s security forces and concerned political actors looking the other way or colluding with the Jihadists,” the organization argues. “Houses burnt or destroyed during the period are in their hundreds; likewise dozens of Christian worship and learning centers.” Intersociety relies on what it deems to be credible local and foreign media reports, government accounts, reports from international rights groups and eyewitness accounts to compile its statistical reports and updates. The organization reported in a March statement that at least 350 Christians were killed in January and February, with Fulani radical attacks in the Middle Belt of Nigeria accounting for 250 of the deaths and Boko Haram terrorists accounting for between 50 to 100 killings. Additionally, the group reported at the time that between 11,500 and 12,000 Christians have been killed in Nigeria since June 2015. According to Intersociety, radical herdsmen accounted for the killing of over 7,400 Christians and Boko Haram groups accounted for 4,000 killings. While conflicts between Fulani herdsmen and predominantly Christian farming communities in the farming-rich Middle Belt states have existed for decades, advocates warn that Fulani attacks in recent years have increased in severity as well as quantity. Fulani radicals are often armed with firearms when conducting their overnight attacks on sleeping farming villages. As a result, many farming communities have been pushed off their lands.  Intersociety projects that by the end of 2020, no less than 32,000 Christians will have been killed across Nigeria by Boko Haram and Fulani radicals combined since 2009. “The killings covered 2009 to 2020, with projected figures for Boko Haram and its offshoot ISWAP and Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen in the coming seven months and half of 2020,” the report explains. Intersociety’s findings come as the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimated last year that at least 27,000 people have been killed by the Boko Haram conflict in northeast Nigeria since 2009. During the years that Boko Haram rose to prominence in the northeast, Intersociety notes that there were 6,000 Christians killed by radical herdsmen between January 2009 to December 2014 in the Middle Belt states. “This is an average of 1,000 Christian deaths per year,” Intersociety reports. “[T]he Jihadist Fulani militants must have accounted for additional 9,000 Christian deaths, or 1,500 deaths per year [from January 2015 to end of December 2020].” “In the end, the Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen must have accounted for total Christian deaths of 15,000 in 11 years,” Intersociety estimates. The organization also contends that most of those killed by Boko Haram from January 2015 to December 2019 — about 60% — are Christians and that all those killed by Fulani radicals during that timespan are Christians.  This past week, suspected Fulani radicals conducted a series of attacks in the Kaduna state district of Kajuru, killing over 20 people and injuring several others. “[S]ince the COVID-19 lockdown on March 25, these Fulani herdsmen have killed 38 Southern Kaduna people, as of yesterday,” Kajuru resident Alheri Magaji, who leads the nonprofit Resilient Aid and Dialogue Initiative, told The Christian Post. “That’s more than the coronavirus.” In addition to the killings, millions in Nigeria have been displaced from their homes and farms due to the violence in the northeast and Middle Belt. While some have returned, many are still homeless with no timetable for when they may be able to return to their farms and homes. Nigeria ranks as the 12th worst country in the world when it comes to Christian persecution on Open Doors USA’s 2020 World Watch List. According to Open Doors, Nigeria is one of the most violent countries in the world for Christians. Nigeria was added to the U.S. State Department’s “special watch list” of countries that engage in or tolerate severe violations of religious freedom for the first time last December. “It is a dangerous situation in too many parts of Nigeria," U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback told reporters at the time. "The government has either not been willing to or have been ineffective in their response and the violence continues to grow.” International advocacy groups have also raised concerns that the violence against Christians in Nigeria has reached the level of genocide.

India, Bangladesh order evacuation of millions ahead of cyclone

Cyclone Amphan with a wind speed of up to 200 kph expected to hit coastal areas of India and Bangladesh on Wednesday.

12 hours ago

India and Bangladesh have begun evacuating more than two million people as a cyclone barrelled towards their coasts, with officials racing to ready shelters amid fears of coronavirus contagion in cramped facilities. Indian forecasters said Cyclone Amphan had reached winds of up to 240 kilometres (145 miles) per hour (mph) with gusts of 265 kph (164 mph) over the Bay of Bengal late on Monday, ahead of the expected landfall on Wednesday. Amphan is expected to weaken before it hits India's eastern states and Bangladesh's south and southwestern coasts, but still pack winds of up to 200 kph (124 mph), said India's National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) chief SN Pradhan. "The landfall wind speed will be 195-200 kph (121-124 mph) in residential areas. It will cause severe damage to life and property," Pradhan said at a news conference, adding that low-lying areas were also bracing for tidal waves. The Indian Meteorological Department said in a bulletin that it could cross the coasts on Wednesday evening with sustained wind speeds of up to 175 kph (108 mph) and gusts of 195 kph (121 mph). Heavy rain and high-velocity winds Such wind speeds are equivalent in strength to a Category 2 or 3 hurricane, and would make Amphan one of the biggest storms to come off the Indian Ocean in recent years. The cyclone, expected to make landfall on Wednesday, comes as India eased the world's longest lockdown, imposed in April against the coronavirus which has infected more than 96,169 people and killed 3,029. Bangladesh officials also warned it could become the worst storm to hit the region since Cyclone Sidr in November 2007, which killed more than 3,000 people. Bangladesh disaster management secretary Shah Kamal said up to two million residents from low-lying areas would be evacuated from Tuesday, he said, adding that they had the capacity to shelter more than five million evacuees. A record 12,078 shelters, including 7,000 schools and colleges, were being readied to avoid crowding amid fears of the virus spreading, Kamal said. Evacuees would be required to wear masks and encouraged to wear gloves while in the shelters, he added. In India, more than 200,000 people in low-lying areas will be moved from their homes in West Bengal by Tuesday, state minister Manturam Phakira told AFP. The cyclone would bring "heavy rain and high-velocity winds" to coastal West Bengal and Odisha states, GK Das of the Regional Meteorological Centre in India's eastern city of Kolkata told AFP news agency. An official at Odisha's cyclone control room said shelters would be prepared for up to 1.1 million people, although the area is expected to escape the brunt of the storm and less than 10 percent of capacity would likely be used. Authorities at the port of Paradip in Odisha ordered ships to move out to sea to avoid damage. "Operations have been wound down," Rinkesh Roy, chairman of the Paradip Port Trust, told Reuters news agency. "We are clearing the port." Cyclone season Pradhan, the NDRF chief, said earlier on Monday that more than 1,500 disaster response personnel - 20 active and 17 standby teams - were being deployed in the two states to tackle the "double challenge" of the cyclone and the coronavirus. Bangladesh's low-lying coast, home to 30 million people and India's east are regularly battered by cyclones that have killed hundreds of thousands of people in recent decades. The cyclone season usually runs from April to December, with severe storms forcing the evacuations of tens of thousands, causing widespread death and damage to crops and property in India and neighbouring Bangladesh. In 1999, Odisha was hit by a super-cyclone that left nearly 10,000 dead. In 1991, the combination of a typhoon, tornadoes and flooding kill 139,000 people in Bangladesh. While the storms' frequency and intensity have increased - partly due to climate change - the death tolls have come down because of faster evacuations and the building of thousands of coastal shelters.

ANALYSIS-As U.S. meat workers fall sick and supplies dwindle, exports to China soar

by Reuters  Monday, 11 May 2020 15:18 GMT By Tom Polansek

CHICAGO, May 11 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump ordered meat processing plants to stay open to protect the nation's food supply even as workers got sick and died. Yet the plants have increasingly been exporting to China while U.S. consumers face shortages, a Reuters analysis of government data showed. Trump, who is in an acrimonious public dispute with Beijing over its handling of the coronavirus outbreak, invoked the 1950 Defense Production Act on April 28 to keep plants open. Now he is facing criticism from some lawmakers, consumers and plant employees for putting workers at risk in part to help ensure China's meat supply. Meat buyers in China ramped up imports from around the world as a pig disease decimated its herd, the world's largest, and pushed Chinese pork prices to record highs. The supply shock drove China to pay more for U.S. meat than other countries, and even U.S. consumers, since late 2019. "We know that over time exports are critically important. I think we need to focus on meeting domestic demand at this point," said Mike Naig, the agriculture secretary in the top U.S. pork-producing state of Iowa who supported Trump's order. Processors including Smithfield Foods, owned by China's WH Group Ltd, Brazilian-owned JBS USA and Tyson Foods Inc temporarily closed about 20 U.S. meat plants as the virus infected thousands of employees, prompting meatpackers and grocers to warn of shortages. Some plants have resumed limited operations as workers afraid of getting sick stay home. The disruptions mean consumers could see 30% less meat in supermarkets by the end of May, at prices 20% higher than last year, according to Will Sawyer, lead economist at agricultural lender CoBank. While pork supplies tightened as the number of pigs slaughtered each day plunged by about 40% since mid-March, shipments of American pork to China more than quadrupled over the same period, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data. https://tmsnrt.rs/2YLF1XN  Smithfield, which China's WH Group bought for $4.7 billion in 2013, was the biggest U.S. exporter to China from January to March, according to Panjiva, a division of S&P Global Market Intelligence. Smithfield shipped at least 13,680 tonnes by sea in March, Panjiva said, citing its most recent data. Smithfield, the world's biggest pork processor, said in April that U.S. plant closures were pushing retailers "perilously close to the edge" on supplies. The company is now retooling its namesake pork plant in Smithfield, Virginia, to supply fresh pork, bacon and ham to more U.S. consumers, according to a statement. The move is an about-face after the company reconfigured the plant last year to process hog carcasses for the Chinese market, employees, local officials and industry sources told Reuters. The Virginia facility currently serves export markets like China and domestic customers, according to Smithfield. Most U.S. pork processors routinely export products to more than 40 international markets, company spokeswoman Keira Lombardo said. The virus infected about 850 employees at another Smithfield pork plant in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Across the U.S. industry, about 5,000 infections and 20 deaths occurred, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "That tragic outcome is all the worse when the food being processed is not going to our nation's families," said U.S. Representative Rosa DeLauro, a Democrat from Connecticut. "That is what the Defense Production Act is all about: protecting America's national interests, not China's." Pork processor Fresh Mark resumed making bacon and ham for global customers at a Salem, Ohio, plant it shut in April over coronavirus cases. "If we start having a shortage in America, I think it should stay here," said Bruce Fatherly, a maintenance worker at the plant and member of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union. Fresh Mark said exports are a small part of its business.  WHOLE HOGS The supply concerns could not have been foreseen when Trump signed a deal in January to ease a trade war he started with Beijing two years earlier. China promised to increase purchases of U.S. farm goods by at least $12.5 billion in 2020 and $19.5 billion in 2021, over the 2017 level of $24 billion. The White House declined to comment. The USDA and U.S. Trade Representative's office did not respond to requests for comment. China increased its purchases because of its dire need for protein after the pig disease African swine fever led to the death of half the country's herd over the past two years. Beijing lifted a nearly five-year ban on U.S. chicken imports in November and also waived retaliatory tariffs on meat shipments to help boost supplies. Year-to-date, about 31% of U.S. pork has been exported, totaling about 838,000 tonnes, according to the U.S. Meat Export Federation. One-third of that volume went to China, accounting for more than 10% of total first-quarter production, the industry group said. It added that exports help increase U.S. production by raising overall demand.  Carcasses, which include most of the pig, were the top product shipped to China in January and February, according to USDA. Loads also include feet and organs that many Americans do not eat.

Exports to China set a record for the period from January to March, and shipments to all destinations in March set a record for any month, according to USDA. JBS, which produces pork, beef and chicken, told Reuters it reduced exports to focus on meeting U.S. demand during the pandemic. About 280 employees at a JBS beef plant in Greeley, Colorado, have been infected with the virus, and seven died, union officials said. "I think we need to take care of our country and our needs first," said Kim Cordova, president of the local United Food and Commercial Workers International Union that represents plant employees. Tyson Foods President Dean Banks said on a conference call last week that he expects China's demand for U.S. pork to remain strong as it recovers from a COVID-19 lockdown. Suppliers like Tyson have limited meat products for American retailers because of plant closures. Kroger Co and Costco Wholesale Corp, meanwhile, restricted shoppers' meat purchases. U.S. farmers, who struggled financially during the trade war with Beijing, say they still need importing countries, including China, to buy their pork. Prior the pandemic, they grappled with an oversupply of hogs. "There's enough meat for all channels if we could get these plants back up and rolling," said Brian Duncan, a hog farmer and vice president of the Illinois Farm Bureau.

The Chinese Communist Party Brought Down the US Economy is Sixty Days – Navarro

Sen. Cotton - Data Suggests Roads Closed Around Wuhan Lab in October

Navarro - CCP Downed Economy in 60 Days

State AG's Request Congressional Investigation into China's 'Deceit'

Trump; "This is worse than Pearl Harbor, this is worse than the World Trade Center. There's never been an attack like this.' Referring to the 'invisible enemy.'

By Nate Brown — @nbro21 — See Comments

Published: May 11, 2020 Updated: May 11, 2020 at 9:14 am EST

Peter Navarro, the White House Trade Advisor, said this week that Beijing, China, the Communist Party, ruined the United States’ economy in just sixty days. Also, Senator Tom Cotton issued an intriguing statement; ‘Reports emerged yesterday in the media that publicly available cell phone data suggests that roads around the lab in Wuhan were closed in the middle of October.’ Unemployment is currently at the highest level since The Great Depression, which was almost 100 years ago; also, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, non-farm payroll tumbled by twenty million. Our economy is in shambles, and there’s no question about it. The question, however, was this is in someway China’s intent? That question arises because of the Communist Party’s actions after the virus outbreak began. First, China lied and said that it is not transmittable from human-to-human, then they destroyed evidence of the origin, and now they are continuing to block other countries from investigating the source of the pandemic. Also, China has destroyed key samples that could help create a vaccine. “We know that patient zero in China was about mid-November. It was in Wuhan. We know that ground zero had the P4 weapons lab, where the Virus likely came from,” Navarro said. “For the next two months, we know that China hid the Virus from the world behind the shield of the World Health Organization. And as they did that, they sent gleaming passenger jets from China, not into the rest of China from Wuhan, but to places like New York and Milan, seeding the world with what would become a pandemic,” the economist and author explained. Navarro said that customs data showed that the CCP also “vacuumed up virtually all of the world’s personal protective equipment, including over 2 billion masks,” and that China is “sitting on that stockpile of what we call PPE,” and “selling it at profiteering prices to some,” while also putting pressure on some countries to “deny the virus came from China or to talk about Taiwan or to do other things.” “So that’s it in a nutshell. And what that means for us here is, this morning, Americans won’t go to church because of the China virus,” Navarro continued. “Sons and daughters of America won’t be taking their mothers to brunch. Tomorrow, 33 million Americans won’t be going to work, and millions of children in America will be home climbing the walls, instead of learning reading, writing, and arithmetic.” The White House trade adviser concluded: “President Trump built the most powerful and beautiful economy in the world in three years. The Chinese Communist Party took it down in 60 days.” However, that’s not the only piece to the puzzle. According to Senator Cotton, there is more investigation needed; “Reports emerged yesterday in the media that publicly available cell phone data suggests that roads around the lab in Wuhan was closed in the middle of October. Again, this information is publicly available. American media has used it to analyze mobility patterns in states to see if our people are practicing social distancing. So the reports indicate that on major roads around these labs, Wuhan, you obviously had thousands and thousands of cell phones pinging towers day in and day out. And then, all of a sudden, it stopped. And it remained stopped for several days. That would suggest, without any further information, that those roads were blocked for some reason. Now, we need to go confirm that. We need to look at the data carefully. We also need to try to use other means to verify if there were, in fact, shutdowns of roads around those labs in the middle of October. The Chinese Communist Party could obviously help us with that if they would open up and allow us to investigate what happened in Wuhan. But if it is confirmed that roads around that lab were shut down for a number of days in mid-October, it is highly coincidental that there was a major shutdown of those roads at about the time one might have expected this Virus to first get transmitted to humans, whatever the origins may have been. But this would be another piece of circumstantial evidence that there was some kind of accident or outbreak from those labs, not from the seafood market or anywhere else. That’s why it’s so important we get to the bottom of this data.

Remember, Wuhan is a city that is larger than New York City. So, obviously, its roads are highly trafficked and heavily congested. So to shut down roads around the lab would suggest that they had some good reason to disrupt traffic patterns so severely. So, again, first, we need to verify these reports, the cell phone data say what these media reports indicate, and then we need to use other sources to try to confirm what they suggest, which is, those roads were shut down. And if that’s the case, if roads were shut down around these laboratories for several days in mid-October, then we need to figure out exactly why, because it’s simply another piece of circumstantial evidence that would support the idea that this Virus originated from one of those labs.” China is not honest. Beijing is covering up evidence and destroying samples of the Coronavirus. According to Navarro, the Chinese Communist Party destroyed the U.S. economy in sixty days. According to Senator Tom Cotton, more investigation is needed into the origin of the Virus. President Trump, on the other hand, agrees that there is more to the story here. Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office of the White House on Wednesday, President Trump said: “We went through the worst attack we’ve ever had on our country, this is worst attack we’ve ever had. “This is worse than Pearl Harbor, this is worse than the World Trade Center. There’s never been an attack like this. “And it should have never happened. Could’ve been stopped at the source. Could’ve been stopped in China. It should’ve been stopped right at the source. And it wasn’t.” Asked later by a reporter if he saw the pandemic as an actual act of war; “I view the invisible enemy [coronavirus] as a war,” he said. “I don’t like how it got here, because it could have been stopped, but no, I view the invisible enemy like a war.” President Trump has suggested that China is at fault for the Coronavirus, and now State Attorney Generals are beginning to request that Congress investigate China’s ‘deceit’ in response to the Coronavirus. Attorneys general for 18 states have signed a letter asking bipartisan leaders in both the House and Senate to open hearings into China’s role in the spread of the Coronavirus, accusing the nation of “layers of deceit” in a coverup of the severity of the Virus while it “wreaked havoc” in the U.S. The letter, dated May 9, was led by South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson, who said that to get to the bottom of the truth, “we can’t rely solely on media to do the investigation. We have got to have truly, we have got to have congressional oversight. We have got to go deep into an investigation using the reaches of the federal government.” “Congressional hearings are critical to our nation’s understanding of the origins of COVID-19 and efforts by the communist Chinese government to deceive the international community,” the letter read. Indeed, with so many questions surrounding the origin of the Virus and the Communist Party’s inaction, it begs the question, what happens when we find the truth?

"Your Every Move Will Be Watched": Post-COVID Offices To Resemble China's Social Credit System

by Tyler Durden Sat, 05/09/2020 - 23:35

We recently detailed how when America's white collar work force returns to their offices, business complexes, and sky scrapers, their experience in the post-COVID 'reopened' work space is likely to resemble something more like an airport security check zone, complete with invasive protocols like frequent temperature checks and 'social distancing' and health surviellance, as well as Plexiglass eclosed cubicles and HR-style enforcement monitors. If all that sounds like a hassle, the WSJ has since taken up the question of America's near-future office spaces, and the end result looks to be worse than expected. "Your every move will be watched," the report emphasizes: In Midtown Manhattan, thermal cameras will measure body temperatures as employees file into a 32-story office tower at Rockefeller Center. The building’s owner, RXR Realty, said it is also developing a mobile app for tenants to monitor — and score — how closely their workers are complying with social distancing.

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP said it is preparing to launch this month a phone app for employers that traces contacts by analyzing workers’ interactions in the office. More than 50 clients have expressed interest, including some of the nation’s biggest banks, manufacturers and energy companies. It sounds like something very close to China's 'big brother' social credit scoring system which made world headlines last year, as it relies on cutting edge facial recognition software designed to permanently store a citizen profile while actively tracking individuals' public movements. There's already been reported instances of Chinese citizens being prevented from taking trains due to the system forecasting they might not be able to pay, or some other 'pre-crime' risks. And now this is getting closer to home, possibly coming to an office near you: Advertising giant Interpublic Group of Cos . is exploring dividing its 22,000 U.S. employees into three separate groups, according to perceived health risks, which could include age. Workers could be asked to disclose medical and other personal information about themselves and, in some cases, family members... “It is a reasonable approach, if you can get through the operational and some of the privacy and regulatory issues,” Dr. Ossmann said.

It's certainly alarming anytime it has to be admitted that "privacy issues" are merely a pesky little something to "get through". There's already talk of health tracking apps set up on a reward/punishment system of incentives sounding like something straight out of the dysoptian futuristic series Black Mirror.

This would further be integrated with controversial thermal imaging technology - some already set up at Amazon warehouses - capable of storing face recognition data (thought the company promises not to activate the storing software).

And it's complete with live "guinea pigs" — rather, currently returning office employees, as the WSJ writes of one real estate company:

RXR, the real-estate company, is testing new systems on its own employees. “We are using ourselves as the guinea pigs,” RXR’s Chief Executive Scott Rechler said.

The company aims to have its social-distancing app ready at the end of May. Workers’ movements are tracked through their smartphones — you get a higher score the more time in the office you are farther than 6 feet from another person. An individual would see his or her own score, and the employer would see aggregate data on how employees are complying with social distancing as a whole. And more on labeling broad groups of employees according to perceived COVID-19 risk factors:

A worker that tested positive for coronavirus antibodies, indicating they had the infection in the past, would be considered a “Level 1” employee — the lowest risk— and could return to work when states and cities lift work-from-home orders.

Those without antibodies but who are considered a low to moderate risk would count as “Level 2.” This group would include employees who are under 65 years old, don’t live with high-risk people and don’t have chronic diseases including diabetes or hypertension. This group could potentially return to work in a second wave.

Employees over 65, or those who are pregnant, smoke, have chronic diseases or health issues would be considered “Level 3.” These at-risk employees would have to wait the longest to return, Dr. Ossmann said.

We wonder when the initial discrimination lawsuits based on how identifying characteristics are interpreted and assigned would start rolling down hill.

But again, to see how all of this would actually play out, one need only watch episodes of the Black Mirror. What could go wrong?

Globalists Are Using A 'Double-Whammy Covid-19 5G Deception' To Usher In Their 'Brave New World Order'

- Never Before In History Have So Many Been Put In Grave Danger By Their Satanic, Hidden Schemes

By R. X. Kendrick for All News Pipeline  May 9, 2020

In a recent ANP.com article, Susan Duclos exposed many “new” developments with the COVID-19 virus. From a tragic murder-suicide of a researcher that was no suicide, to scientists saying a new “dominant strain” of the virus appears to be more contagious, to younger people suddenly developing a new symptom called “Covid-Toes.” Is this fake news? Covid-Toes? Could this be for real? Probably not, but the pictures look like swollen-red human toes? From her article: “What is alarming is the majority of people with this symptom never thought they were even exposed to the coronavirus.”

People who had “absolutely no symptoms of COVID at all,” it goes on to say. Were suddenly dealing with half-cooked toes? Do these “virus” symptoms make any sense at all? Yes, if something very strange is going on as many people are coming to realize. Because no one can figure out what the hell is really going on. Which is by design and coming from a specific source. There is a consortium of high-minded extremely wealthy people with exorbitant earthly power who jointly want to dictate terms to everybody else on earth and rule over all of the world’s populations. As if they are entitled to exercise power over all humanity. A hidden group behind the scenes we refer to most often as: “They”.

The nameless, faceless “They” are at it again. People talk about Them all the time. They want to rule the world. They want to kill us all. They commit all these fake murder-suicides and get away with it. They this, they that… They are coming for our guns. They are poisoning our skies. They have to be stopped!

But how does it help anything for us to always be “shadowboxing” at the wall? Jab, jab, jab, hook! Back up, keep your feet moving, come close to the wall again. Jab, jab, jab… Doesn’t seem like this is getting us anywhere, does it? Fighting the phantom “shadow people” THEY who actually do have real names and real facial recognition identities. One of them, we know is their favorite outspoken guru virus prophet: “BillyGoats” Billionaire Bill Gates! According to studies done since the 1940’s with many different versions published. We know a “general population” average of 87- to 90-per cent of the common populace make their decisions based on first-source information. The most recent quote I saw says only 7% of us these days look for a second source to corroborate the first source. And only 3% of us will routinely search out more than two sources to understand what’s really going on.

Guess what? “THEY” know this about us. They play to this weakness directly. It’s part of how They follow Their normal social engineering operating procedures, including “repeating the first official version” they publicize again and again. Even if They get exposed by the 3% and are busted by the conscientious few. They will stick to their guns and repeat stories like “Lee Harvey Oswald” assassinated John F. Kennedy by shooting him from a multi-story building in Dallas, Texas as a lone gunman. Because They know 87- to 90- per cent of the people will believe them. Everyone knows the lone assassin theory has been debunked a thousand times in a thousand ways now. How then is this over-repeated version of the assassination still being told to us? How is it seriously still in Wikipedia? They are still repeating the first story They told us. Still repeating the cover story lie 50-years later. There is nothing new about this. So we have to improve our comprehension of, not only “who” They are, but also “what” They are really doing to us in real time. The reason the people Susan referred to “had absolutely no symptoms of COVID at all,” is because they did not really have the COVID-19 virus. The reason people with the new symptom of the virus called Covid-Toes “never thought they were even exposed to the coronavirus,” is because they most likely were not exposed to the virus. (PLEASE HELP SUPPORT ANP: With Independent Media being censored on almost every internet platform, reader donations are what keeps websites like ANP up and running. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stefan & Susan.) Consider how microwave ovens cook things, from the USDA’s online page on this topic: “Microwave ovens cook unevenly and leave ‘cold spots,’ where harmful bacteria can survive.” Anybody who has used a microwave knows this. You get cold spots and hot spots when cooking in microwave ovens. You need the rotating bottom plate to cook more evenly. Could this dynamic be happening to people who keep coming down with symptoms that match 5G EMF radiation exposure more than a virus? Where they develop signs of being slow-cooked and there are hotter spots in-or-on their bodies where 5G microwave exposure is invisibly and unevenly roasting them inside-out? One of the first deaths in the US from the Covid-19 virus was reportedly determined to be a coronavirus “massive heart attack.” Say what? Another so-called virus death was reportedly from a coronavirus “major stroke” hemorrhage in the brain. Really? Good grief everybody, RUN FOR THE HILLS !!! What kind of virus is this? The wild fantasy TV/Movie version? Now we have Virus-Toes! And certainly with the MSM around everybody will start believing in Virus-Toes. Blatant deceptions with comical descriptions. I hope the virus doesn’t morph into Virus-Ears!! Or Virus-Eyes!!! People this stuff is so unbelievable it’s hard to believe you believe any of it! How stupid are 90% of us? All humans today need to wake up and understand that in late 2019 planet earth and mankind embarked into a whole new realm of life together. Never before in the history of the planet have people been put into such an invisible microwave oven of 5G electromagnetic frequency. Let that sink into your brains. NEVER BEFORE – EVER BEFORE IN HISTORY have large dense populations of people been put in such dangerous-to-our-health microwave grids. Never. Not for any period of time, much less an extended period of time. This just started the first of the year 2020. A dangerous military grade frequency that is not safe to human, animal or plant life is amongst us now. In many places people are getting cooked to death in sickening tragic intentional 5G EMF attacks.. World life health danger “5G Electromagnetic Frequencies” are also getting positioned to send-back-to-earth 5G from Space! With some of these satellite signals already reaching their owner Elon Musk, he has reported. And thousands more satellites planned to be deployed above us.

Wherever the 5G EMF grids were rolled out in just this past year of 2019, the people living within the grids were the first ever humans to experience such a “5G life phenomenon.” This incredible new “Radiation Town” experience never existed before this time in time. This is like the “new frontier” from Star Trek reruns. None of us have ever been here. Man is entering a new time with this RF radio frequency reality. We are literally “where no man has ever gone before!” We are there today, right now. Starting in late 2019 when the newly rolled out EMF telecom technology was switched on around the world, and Covid-19 showed up simultaneously. Isn’t that a coincidence that these things happened in synchronization with each other. It is not a coincidence. They did not happen by chance together. They happened by plan intentionally together. It is a dual weapon system. The virus + 5G EMF radiation = “COVID-19 Mass Murder Plot.” It’s hard to comprehend because we don’t know anything like this 5G life phenomenon from previous human experience: To actually try living in this dangerous microwave frequency. But there are plenty of obvious signs that “something” has changed dramatically in our world and we just aren’t used to distinguishing symptoms of radiation exposure from virus symptoms. This is all new territory. All new critically dangerous territory. That “something” that has changed is having 5G EM cooking-heat frequencies in our midst 24-7. This isn’t just a new swan song. This is something no man has any personal experience of “living in” until now. Everything about the maniacal so-called virus symptoms that don’t add up, is most likely thanks to this new “5G EMF reality” in our midst day and night. The 5G life phenomenon. Pay attention and see for yourself. Virus symptoms that don’t make sense for a “real” virus, do make perfect sense for EMF radiation exposure. There’s a CLUE for us! Isn’t that odd. Right when 5G is first introduced all of this happens together in perfect sequence and synchronistic timing with the coronavirus. My favorite news term of late? “Morphing Virus.” But there’s a catch you might want to know about. The Morphing Virus BS of the CDC and the WHO and Billionaire BillyGoats Bill Gates and the Mainstream Media’s puppet reporters is a big joke. Because the so-called Morphing Virus is totally harmless to humans. It won’t hurt kids or old people. It can’t kill anyone. Everyone has been running in panic and fear, but in reality it won’t harm a flower in your hair. I mean it. Yet everyone is fearful of it as they hear MSM story after story about a “morphing virus” on the loose destined to kill millions! No it’s not. Not unless you’re a cyborg. Nobody is going to die. Take a search engine look into this yourself and see what you learn. “Morphing Virus” is a computer term, not a medical term. Now do you see how utterly stupid and ignorant “They” think you are? Believe me They are laughing all the way to the bank as people go on believing humans worldwide are being infected by a computer virus! What a joke. Not a single person on the entire planet has been infected by a morphing computer virus. The Morphing Virus is a made for TV MSM-Hollywood drama fear term – being used to scare people. The correct medical term is “mutating virus” not morphing. Some interesting things about mutations of viruses were recently discussed in the LIVESCIENCE.com article: “How fast can the coronavirus mutate?” From this article we learn: “The new coronavirus, like all other viruses, mutates, or undergoes small changes in its genome.” Nathan Grubaugh, an epidemiologist at the Yale School of Public Health explains further, “These slight changes likely wouldn't have a major impact if any at all, on the functioning of the virus.” And the mutations a virus undergoes worldwide “would take a nontrivial amount of effort” and potentially “years to complete.” In other words, a lot of work and a long time. Grubaugh published his commentary in the journal Nature Microbiology in February of this year by the title: "We shouldn't worry when a virus mutates during disease outbreaks."  The word mutation, he says, "naturally conjures fears of unexpected and freakish changes. In reality, mutations are a natural part of the virus life cycle and rarely impact outbreaks dramatically.” Grubaugh also notes how “most mutations negatively affect the virus.” What MSM reporters are saying about fast-morphing “symptoms” of Covid-19 strains is not true. Total Baloney Sandwich. Flying BS in the Wind nonsense. Ridiculous beyond belief. Scripted drama meant to cause fear. Almost fraud, if not actual fraud. Making things harder for mutations to happen super-fast like you hear in the news, the author clarifies that: “For a virus to become ‘more severe or transmit more easily,’ multiple genes would have to mutate. Despite high rates of mutation among viruses in general it's UNUSUAL to find viruses that change their mode of transmission between humans over such short time scales.”

Hello! Anybody listening to this? Anybody putting the pieces of the puzzle together here? The opposite of what the MSM news sources are telling you is actually the truth. There is no scary morphing going on that is happening so fast nobody can keep up with the changing symptoms. The mutations that do happen are typically negative to the virus and do not make it stronger or more contagious. It would be highly “unusual” for a virus to become more severe or transmit more easily in a short time. We’re being lied to by an intentional disinformation campaign complete with faux science forces pushing mandatory vaccine and testing agendas. And exactly what is the test that is being used to identify the virus these days anyway? The testing is a total hoax. They aren’t testing for the virus! They can’t because the test doesn’t exist yet. It takes time to develop such a virus test, so what exactly are the tests testing for that MSM reporters keep telling us about? Symptoms. That’s right, the tests you hear about in the news are random non-uniform tests of all different kinds that can only identify symptoms, but not the actual virus itself. When a person “tests positive” for coronavirus that is actually not true. What really happens is they test positive for symptoms of coronavirus. Which symptoms could easily be from flu or many other illnesses and diseases? Nobody in the whole world has tested positive for coronavirus even one time since this outbreak began. Believe it or not, not even one person. How could they, if there’s no test for it yet? This is a preplanned premeditated psyop-scamdemic for real folks. Things like this do not happen in concert together in perfect timing by accident. Be realistic in your thinking. Is any cover story ever true? No. Then don’t believe the cover story you’re told that doesn’t add up or make sense. A deadly mass murder event is happening in real time and the weapon of choice being used to do most of the damage? Extremely harmful to human life 5G EMF radiation.

“They” who are doing this include Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci as the front men with lots of high-level executives, owners and other fascist players connected to Big Pharma, the WHO, the CDC, Mainstream Media, the depraved depopulation extremists behind the Georgia Guidestones, Big Tech, corrupt banking, Luciferian secret societies, corrupt and entrenched deep state political and military traitors. All wanting and predicting a massive depopulation of the earth from present population numbers. China is apparently not the only nation to release the weaponized virus on their own citizens.  Real viruses come and go in real life, and don’t stick around and keep coming back to infect the same person again and again. That’s not realistic at all. That is fantastic and imaginary. 5G radiation could do that, but not a real virus. We can’t keep confusing 5G radiation exposure symptoms with Covid-19 symptoms by calling the 5G symptoms coronavirus. Both of these things just started happening at the same time in late December 2019. And we’ve had lots and lots of viruses that didn’t cause anything like this. How hard is it to see the difference between realistic virus symptoms and not-realistic at all virus symptoms that are actually clear evidence of the dangerous radiation in the newly introduced 5G Network Grid Systems rolled worldwide in 2019? Making sense of the virus is impossible without recognizing people are getting zapped with 5G at the same time and completely separately too. This is causing people without the virus to develop radiation-related symptoms similar to a virus “up to a point.” Radiation exposure victims are getting counted as virus victims when they don’t have the virus. Calling any of the “new” 5G exposure symptoms “virus” symptoms convolutes all tracking and numbers exponentially. How perfect for generating fear among unsuspecting dumbed down citizens who refuse to see what’s happening to them! This is what is happening. The deception ploy is so perfectly misleading and confusing. It is working well for Them since They can “re-infect” someone who was never infected to begin with – many times over with the 5G symptoms mimicking virus symptoms. Compromised health officials, and others in on this scam, are calling all similar symptoms Covid-19. Meaning, as long as the 5G deployed in 2019 is not turned off this “plandemic” will continue. The only way to save ourselves from the game being played against us is to stop 5G deployment and disable and remove all 5G already deployed whether on land or in space. It is a weapons grade frequency completely unsafe for densely populated areas. It is deadly and it will kill, kill and keep on killing. Far and away deadlier than any virus, it is killing people right now wherever people are caught in the severely harmful to human health radioactive microwaves. There should have been no panic at all. This has been mostly scam-theater not reality, except they are killing people with 5G EMF. All the requirements forced on populations the world over were unnecessary. Fear and panic were created intentionally by combining the simultaneous 5G attacks with the Covid-19 release to allow the new abuses of our freedoms and personal rights. To that reality and affect a growing group of concerned professionals and individuals has formed to present an international appeal to stop all 5G on earth and in space. An excerpt from this international appeal describes the reality of what we’re dealing with. “Despite widespread denial, the evidence that radio frequency (RF) radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming. The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization—cancer, heart disease and diabetes—are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution, forms a literature base of well over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies.” Please check out this link, go to their website and sign your name to join in supporting this most critical and urgent endeavor of our times.

What I Learned During the COVID Crisis

by Daisy Luther

The COVID-19 crisis has affected just about every family in the United States in some way or another. All of our situations are unique and everyone I’ve spoken to has learned some lessons about their levels of preparedness. Some of those lessons are unconventional but valuable nonetheless. There are a whole lot of things you can’t learn from a book or a blog. Here are the things I’ve learned.  Trust your instincts. I began writing about this virus back in January when it was announced that the entire city of Wuhan was being locked down and millions of people were under stay at home orders. With that many people under a mandatory lockdown, I was firmly convinced that this had potential global ramifications. I had come back from Europe to attend a funeral in early January and was supposed to return on January 28th. After doing the research for the article mentioned above, I rescheduled my flight for March 28th and settled in with my youngest daughter at her apartment to help out with the bills. We immediately began stocking up. A lot of folks at that time said I was crazy – a few here on my website but more so on other sites that republished my work. I’m no stranger to being called crazy – I’m in the preparedness industry and I like guns, so right there, the mainstream media sees me as a lunatic. It no longer bothers me and I was convinced that this was going to be a big deal.  Every day from January 23rd to the present, I’ve spent hours researching as this pandemic has unfolded. I sincerely wish that I had not been correct, but here we are, still in lockdown in many parts of the country. You can prepare fast if you’re aware before other folks are. I had sold or donated nearly everything that my daughters didn’t want before I took off on an open-ended trip to Europe last fall. The other items were divided up between my two girls. So while the daughter with whom I stayed still had a few things, like firearms, water filters, etc., the stockpile was pretty much gone. By the end of January, I was pretty sure that we were going to see mandatory quarantines or lockdowns here and I began stocking up. It’s important to note that at this point, you could still buy anything you wanted or needed. I grabbed some extra masks and gloves but most of my focus was on food and other everyday supplies. By the end of February, I was pretty content with the amount of supplies we had. I had spent as little as possible on “right now food” and focused most of my budget on shelf-stable items like canned goods, pasta, and rice. For about $600, we accumulated a supply that would see us through a minimum of 3 months without leaving the house. I figured, if it turned out that I had overreacted, my daughter would use the food anyway. I also started a personal spending freeze at the end of January. If it wasn’t an item we needed to become better prepared, I didn’t spend a dime. I was able to put back a few months’ worth of expenses while still stocking up. It helped that my daughter was living thrifty in a less expensive apartment with utilities included. I was very concerned about things like cash flow and it turns out, this has been a huge problem for a lot of people. You can’t always have the “ideal” situation. There were a lot of things about my situation that were less than ideal. But that’s probably true in a lot of cases. You just have to adapt to the reality of your situation instead of endlessly wishing it was different or feeling that it’s hopeless. “Less than ideal” does not mean that all hope is lost. First, there was the situation of living arrangements. I have a daughter in Canada and a daughter in the US. My older daughter in Canada has been working longer and was better established. My younger daughter, who lives in the US, was new to the workforce and didn’t have a lot of money so I stayed with her to help out financially. Her apartment is in a lower-middle-class residential area of the city where she works. Thankfully, it is a two-bedroom and I only brought with me two suitcases. Living in an apartment without much of a yard during this kind of event is not something I would have chosen, given time to seek alternatives. But we all know this crept up fast. Moving was not an option. I focused on hardening the apartment with plywood to put up at the windows, tripwires that could be set up quickly if needed, and sturdier locks. We got some quarantine warning signs that we could post if all hell broke loose as a potential deterrent, and I set up spotlights in the front yard. Currently, they face the stairs to the front door, but in a bad situation, they could be turned around to illuminate anyone coming up to the house instead.  I bought more ammo for our firearms and we sat down together to work through potential scenarios. We developed a “fatal funnel” in the front hallway and added “stumbling blocks” in the front hall that could be shoved in front of the door to slow down an advance. (Just cardboard boxes filled with hardcover books – nothing fancy.) We made friends with the other family who lives in the building while maintaining our OPSEC. It’s always good to have allies and they have a better line of sight from their upper apartment. Normally, I would have bought loads of organic food and preserved it myself, but early in the crisis, there was still a question of whether or not we’d have power throughout the emergency and there simply wasn’t enough time at this late date. My stockpile is not ideal – lots of storebought canned goods and carbs like pasta and rice – but it’s filling and versatile. And most of all, it’s what was readily available. I was able to grab cases of canned fruits and vegetables and canned ravioli when it was cheap and abundant. So while it isn’t our normal diet or even our normal preps, we’re fortunate to have it. We’ve continued to hit the store weekly for foods that are more “normal” but can easily shift to the stockpile if it becomes necessary. As you can see there are a lot of things that aren’t ideal from a prepper’s point of view, but when disaster strikes, you have to adapt. So if your situation isn’t perfect, don’t just throw your hands up in the air and give up – ADAPT. It’s okay to have feelings. While I’ve been confident in following my intuition regarding this scenario, I can’t say that I have never had any doubts whatsoever. This has been an extraordinary situation. We’ve all suffered losses: losses of loved ones, losses of jobs, losses of dreams. The uncertainty of what lies ahead is difficult, even for someone who has been prepping and researching disasters for decades. This is hard. It’s not to say that other situations that have occurred haven’t been harder or haven’t resulted in more loss. It’s not a contest. We don’t have to compare and invalidate how this had made us feel. I’ve even felt like this can’t possibly be happening. I know that it is happening but there’s still that little part of me that was shocked to see it occur. However you feel about something, it’s valid. We’re all allowed to have feelings. Just don’t let those feelings paralyze you. Invest in education. No, I’m not saying go back to college and get a degree. I’m talking about life education. Over the past years, I’ve spent time and money learning from experts in many fields and this has helped me more than I can describe. I’ve taken in-person courses on the following:

Gardening and food preservation from a county extension office

A violence de-escalation course

Krav Maga

Marketing (never underestimate the power of using words to motivate others)

I learned to raise and butcher animals for food

Numerous firearms courses

Selco’s Urban Survival Course for Women in Croatia

A defensive knife course

I’ve taken online courses too, in particular, Selco’s SHTF Boot Camp and One Year in Hell.

These things have changed my mindset so much that I’m not the same person I was before I took these courses. I have a different understanding now of violence and the cues that lead up to it. I know a lot more about food self-reliance and can adapt those skills to other things. I can protect myself and the people I love on many different levels. And the things I learned in Croatia? Taking that course from Selco and Toby is by far the very best investment I’ve ever made in my own preparedness. Most importantly, I learned that survival and preparedness are two different skill sets, and having both of them provides you with the best of both worlds. I can use survival skills to enhance my level of preparedness even if I don’t have a one-year supply of food. And I was able to use the experience of spending time in war-torn areas with Selco narrating his own experience to spot trouble coming a lot sooner than others in my area. I would never have been able to be flexible enough to get prepared this quickly without the things I learned from Selco and Toby. I wouldn’t have been as ready for potential violence. You can read all you want about societal breakdowns but until you actually stand in the crumbling building amidst the debris hearing a first-person account, you don’t really understand it. Seeing the end result of war and genocide was eye-opening, and provides a reality check about how bad things can get. I can’t put a price tag on the value that I received from that investment and when new courses open up again, I suggest you go if you can at all. Their real-world observations will change your perspective on just about everything you think you know. There are many experts out there who have learned from their own experiences. Never think you already know too much to learn anything from them because I promise you, there are things you never even considered. You will be far more prepared to face the potential violence and hardships of future scenarios when you learn from those who have been down these roads. The value of things changes. Before this, who would have thought that toilet paper would be the new gold? Or that there would be countless articles all over the media about toilet paper substitutes? One thing that I learned is that the value of things changes dramatically in unusual situations. Store shelves were stripped bare in a matter of days, and in many places around the country, inventory has never really recovered. People had to improvise when their first choices were gone by choosing from the things that were remaining. The shortages we’ve faced weren’t really the ones I expected. Bleach, yeast, and paper products reached the top of everyone’s to-buy lists. I suppose I assumed that if the stores were still open, we wouldn’t be facing limited quantities of items like meat and pasta. Instead of nurturing non-food-bearing plants, people are nurturing their sourdough starters and seedlings. Nobody really cares about buying new clothes right now or about frivolous new shoes, because where are you going to wear them? Instead, there’s a run on N95 masks and seeds. Many people have zeroed in on the real necessities and that’s where their money is going.  People may not be who you think they are. One thing that was particularly eye-opening was the actions of others. There were close friends and family members who proved that they were not the people I wanted in my inner circle if things hit the fan. Some of the reactions of people about whom I care were incredibly disappointing and even downright shocking. Folks who I thought would be ready to roll with whatever situation might come stunned me by refusing to accept what was happening because it wasn’t the apocalypse for which they’d prepared. I also encountered people who were not within my immediate family and friends who surprised me. This situation was certainly a study in human behavior. They surprised me with their greed, anger, and sense of entitlement. After hearing about how they spoke of others who’d been wise enough to stock up ahead of time, with ugly words like “hoarder” and “selfish,” I was very glad I’d never confided my preparedness efforts in them. I saw people display incredibly short fuses and respond with rage over the slightest little thing. I saw others who took this opportunity to behave with increased violence and glimpses of the potential predator inside them.  Of course, like all of you, I’d read about these things. But seeing it in action was entirely different.  Don’t have regrets. I’ve caught myself a few times thinking, “Wow, I wish we still had our farm by the creek back in California” and “the last house we lived in would have been far better suited for this situation” but I stop myself. There’s no point in having regrets. I’m glad that I gave my daughter the chance to get her feet on the ground as an adult, and I am very happy I spent the time I did in Europe, even if it means that I had to start from scratch to get prepped for this event. Other people have told me that they have spent time wishing they had never moved from a more suitable place or they regret frivolous purchases they made when that money would have been better spent on preps. Look, we all probably could have made different decisions in the past that would lead to more stability right now, but many of those decisions resulted in other types of benefits: great experiences, new friends, or an improved mindset. Life is way too short to have regrets, and if you’re looking backward, you won’t see what’s right in front of you. And in an uncertain world, that can be very dangerous. Don’t put things off.  If there are things you’ve been putting off doing until some future date when everything is “perfect” then stop. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that delaying things until the “right time” presents itself is a mistake. I am so glad I took those classes I mentioned above. I’m so glad that I spent months in Greece, Macedonia, and Montenegro. And I’m absolutely returning to Europe when the situation allows it. I learned a kind of flexibility wandering around countries where I didn’t speak the language that I never had before. I can sleep anywhere. I can quickly identify resources and navigate my way through new places. I learned some thrifty habits that are cultural norms in the Balkans. Those experiences completely changed my mindset, made me more adaptable, and built my confidence.  Your goals and dreams may look a lot different than mine, but when the chance returns to reach them, do it. Get that piece of property. Start building that cabin. Grow that garden even if it’s in pots on your balcony. Explore those places you’ve always wanted to see. Start the business. Write the book. Buy that prep that you’ve been thinking about it because tomorrow it may no longer be available. There is no perfect time. Life is for living, not for staying in your safety bubble that looks an awful lot like a rut. Even life after a pandemic. What did you learn? Of course this isn’t over yet, and I’m sure there are more lessons still to come. But these are the things I’ve learned so far. I find that we can all experience the same situation yet each of us comes away with something different. So, I’m curious. What lessons did you learn during this crisis? How will it change your preparedness efforts in the future? What was the biggest surprise? Please share your experiences in the comments.

DOJ Withdraws Gen. Flynn Charge; Trump Says Obama Officials Committed Treason, “Human Scum”

May 7, 2020/by News Editor

By Fox News. The Justice Department on Thursday moved to drop its case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, in a stunning development that comes after internal memos were released raising serious questions about the nature of the investigation that led to Flynn’s late 2017 guilty plea of lying to the FBI. The announcement came in a court filing “after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information,” as the department put it. DOJ officials said they concluded that Flynn’s interview by the FBI was “untethered to, and unjustified by, the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into Mr. Flynn” and that the interview was “conducted without any legitimate investigative basis.” . . . The federal judge overseeing the case would have to make the final determination to dismiss it. The retired Army lieutenant general for months has been trying to withdraw his plea, aided by a new attorney aggressively challenging the prosecution’s case and conduct. But, the case has been plodding through the court system with no resolution ever since his original plea, even amid speculation about whether President Trump himself could extend a pardon. . . President Trump reacted from the Oval Office just minutes after the DOJ filing surfaced. “He was an innocent man… Now, in my book, he’s an even greater warrior,” Trump said, while criticizing Obama administration officials. “They’re human scum. … It’s treason.” (Read more from “DOJ Withdraws Gen.

By New York Post. Obama-era Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates pushed to notify the incoming Trump administration of the nature of Michael Flynn’s communications with Russia, but was slow-rolled by the FBI, according to bombshell documents filed Thursday. The behind-the-scenes revelation came to light in a memo of an interview with Yates, among a trove of documents released as the DOJ dropped its criminal case against Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser. Yates first learned of the contacts between Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — in which Flynn asked that Russia refrain from retaliating to sanctions imposed over interference in the 2016 election — from President Obama himself, the FBI memo says. Obama told Yates during a January 2017 meeting in the Oval Office that he had “learned of the information about Flynn” and wanted to know how to proceed, according to the documents.

Ancient Volcano Newly Discovered in the North Sea off The Netherlands

By Strange Sounds - May 10, 2020

An extinct volcano has been discovered accidentally about 100 kilometers off the coast of Texel in The Netherlands. The 150-million-year-old volcano was named ‘Mulciber’ after the Roman god of fire. The ancient formation was recognized by deviations in the seafloor’s structure, combined with measurements of the earth’s magnetic field. This new discovery marks an important turning point in the understanding of volcanism in the North Sea. “The North Sea and the geological deposits in it seem to me to be reading an exciting story. We think we know the big story now. But if as you reread it, characters and storylines become more and more apparent, so this discovery adds to the general knowledge about our living environment,” Van Der Meulen explained to public broadcaster NOS on Saturday. Extinct volcano He also explained in a separate statement about the discovery that the volcano will most likely never erupt again. “The chances of the Mulciber erupting are nearly zero. Geologists distinguish between dormant and extinct volcanoes. “Dormant means that it is now quiet but can become active again. This is possible after hundreds or even thousands of years of inactivity. But we can declare the Mulciber extinct.“ Second volcano in Dutch’s Waters Mulciber is the second volcano to be discovered in Dutch territorial waters. The first, the extinct Zuidwal Volcano, was discovered in 1970 during an oil search. It is located around 2 kilometers below the surface of the Wadden Sea, just off the coast of the Netherlands. Meanwhile, other scientific teams have confirmed that Mulciber is a volvano. “Substrate composition, deposits, age, seismic data: everything confirmed the presence of a volcano,” said researcher Geert-Jan Vis in a statement. In addition to Mulciber and the Zuidwal Volcano, there are two active volcanoes in Dutch overseas territories in the Carribean. One of which sits on the island of Saba, and the other on St. Eustatius. More volcano news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [NL Times]

US Deploys B-1Bs, Warships In South China Sea As China Nationalists Call For Invasion Of Taiwan

By Tyler Durden Sun, 05/10/2020 - 21:18

While the global economy remains in a state of near ubiquitous lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the US military has been busy. According to an update posted on the Pacific Air Forces website, a B-1B Lancer strategic bomber part of the 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron was one of two B-1s conducting a training mission in the South China Sea in support of Pacific Air Forces’ training efforts and "strategic deterrence missions to reinforce the rules-based international order in the Indo-Pacific region." The training missions follows what Stars and Stripes described on April 30 as a "show of force" by the U.S. military in the South China Sea "with a sortie over the contested waters on Thursday by two Air Force bombers." The B-1B Lancers from the 28th Bomb Wing at Ellsworth Air Force Base, S.D., flew a 32-hour round trip to conduct operations over the sea as part of a joint bomber task force by the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command and U.S. Strategic Command, the Air Force said in news release Thursday. The mission further demonstrated the service’s new “dynamic force employment model,” which is intended to make its global bomber presence less predictable, the Air Force said. Meanwhile, according to a Friday report from the USNI, the US Navy "sent a pair of ships to patrol in the vicinity of a mineral rights dispute between Malaysia and China in the South China Sea for the second time in a month." According to the report, the Littoral Combat Ship USS Montgomery (LCS-8) and replenishment ship USNS Cesar Chavez (T-AKE-14) conducted a presence operation in the South China Sea on Thursday near Panamanian-flagged drill ship West Capella, in what appears to have been a show of force/deterrence. The drill ship is under contract to conduct surveying operations in Malaysia’s exclusive economic zone for Malaysian state oil company Petronas. Chinese People Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) warships and China Coast Guard vessels have also operated near the Malaysian-contracted drilling ship, according to USNI. Separately, in late April, guided-missile cruiser USS Bunker Hill (CG-52) sailed with the Royal Australian Navy frigate HMAS Parramatta (FFG-154) before joining the amphibious assault ship USS America (LHA-6) and guided-missile destroyer USS Barry (DDG-52) to conduct combined exercises in the area where a Chinese government survey ship, Haiyang Dizhi 8, was said to be operating with an escort of several China Coast Guard ships. On Friday, U.S. Pacific Fleet commander Adm. John Aquilino issued a pointed statement addressing Chinese operations in the region:We are committed to a rules-based order in the South China Sea, and we will continue to champion freedom of the seas and the rule of law,” Aquilino said in the release. "The Chinese Communist Party must end its pattern of bullying Southeast Asians out of offshore oil, gas, and fisheries." Bunker Hill conducted a freedom of navigation operation through the Spratly Island chain near Gaven Reef in the South China Sea on April 29. "Unlawful and sweeping maritime claims in the South China Sea pose a serious threat to the freedom of the seas, including the freedoms of navigation and overflight and the right of innocent passage of all ships," reads the statement from 7th Fleet.

In response to what may be prompting these increased "shows of force" by the US military in China contested waters, today the SCMP reported that "Beijing is trying to calm rising nationalist sentiment after a growing chorus of voices called for China to take advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic by invading Taiwan." A number of commentators on social media have called for the island to be reunified by force – something Beijing has never ruled out – but some analysts believe the authorities want to play a longer game and are now trying to cool the “nationalist fever According to the SCMP report, an article published earlier in the month in the magazine of the Central Party School, which trains senior officials, drew historical parallels with the Qing dynasty’s conquest of Taiwan in the 17th century to highlight the importance of patience and careful planning. The 5,000-word article in Study Times, written by historian Deng Tao, said the Qing had spent the next 20 years preparing for the invasion and conquest of the island and argued that they had also used political, diplomatic and economic measures to achieve their goal rather than just relying on force. The historian then went on to say that the Qing had managed to isolate the island’s rulers diplomatically and sent representatives to the island to court support among its Han Chinese residents by offering them incentives to return to the mainland and escape the heavy taxes imposed by their rulers. But in the meantime, the Kangxi emperor had been building up and training an invasion fleet that successfully took the island in 1683 and incorporated it into the Qing empire. Fast forward to today, when a number of commentators and retired military commanders have called for Beijing to retake control of the island, where the defeated Nationalist forces fled in 1949 following their defeat in the civil war. Additionally, some former military leaders have argued that the United States – which is bound by law to help the Taiwanese government defend itself – is presently unable to do so because all four of its aircraft carriers in the Pacific have been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak. Some legal commentators, including Tian Feilong, an associate professor at Beihang University, in Beijing, have gone so far to call on the government to consider the use of force and argued that an “anti-secession” law ratified in 2005 gives it the legal authority to do so. Tian argued in an article published on the news website guancha.cn that political and social developments on the island meant it was impossible to resolve the situation peacefully and said anti-government protests in Hong Kong showed that the “one country, two systems model” – which Beijing hoped to use as the basis for reunification with Taiwan – had failed. Qiao Liang, a retired air force major general who is seen as a hawkish voice on the mainland, argued in a separate article published on the social media platform WeChat that now was not the right time to take Taiwan by force. Liang warned it would be “too costly and risky” and said China should wait until it had the economic and military strength to challenge the US. A Beijing-based military source said the mainland authorities still hope the situation can be resolved peacefully and the majority of Taiwanese still want to maintain the status quo. “Maintaining the stability and prosperity of Taiwan before and after its unification is still the top priority for the mainland,” the source continued. Lee Chih-horng, who lectures in cross-strait relations at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, said the articles by Deng and Qian indicated that the government wanted to stick to its own timetable for Taiwan unification. The Beijing leadership has now realised that they need to cool down the nationalist fever as calls to take Taiwan by force have become too emotional, with many on mainland social media stirring up the topic for attention,” Lee said. “As Qiao said, Beijing realises now is not a good time to take Taiwan back by force, but [President] Xi [Jinping] will come out up with the ultimate solution to solve the Taiwan issue.” Whether China's heightened nationalistic tendencies are behind the stepped up US "training missions" and "patrols" in the South China Sea remains unclear, but amid the heightened diplomatic tensions between the US and China over the source of the coronavirus pandemic, the rising military tensions will hardly facilitate the return of normal relations between the two superpowers.

Man Who Predicted The Global Collapse Now Warns What Is In Front Of Us Is Truly Frightening

April 05, 2020

Today the man who predicted the global collapse just warned King World News that what is in front of us is truly frightening. The Frightening End Of The Biggest Financial Bubble In History

April 5 (King World News) – Egon von Greyerz: A Hyperinflationary Depression has always been the inevitable end to the biggest financial bubble in history. And this time it will be global. Hyperinflation will spread from country to country like Coronavirus. It could start anywhere but the most likely first countries are the US and the EU or ED (European Disunion) They will quickly be followed by many more like Japan and most developing countries. Like Coronavirus it will quickly jump from country to country with very few being spared. CURRENT INTEREST RATES ARE A FALSE INDICATOR

Ever since the last interest cycle peaked in 1981, there has been a 39 year downtrend in US and global rates from almost 20% to 0%. Since in a free market interest rates are a function of the demand for credit, this long downtrend points to a severe recession in the US and the rest of the world. The simple rules of supply and demand tell us that when the price of money is zero, nobody wants it. But instead debt has grown exponentially without putting any upside pressure on rates. The reason is simple, central and commercial banks have created limitless amounts of credit out of thin air. In a fractional banking system banks can lend the same money 10 to 50 times. And central banks can just print infinite amounts. Global debt in 1981 was $14 trillion. One would have assumed that with interest rates crashing there would not have been a major demand for debt. High demand would have led to high interest rates. But if we look at global debt in 2020, it is a staggering $265 trillion. So debt has gone up 19X in the last 39 years and cost of debt has gone from 20% to 0% – Hmmm! 

CORONAVIRUS IS THE CATALYST BUT NOT THE CAUSE The crisis that the world is now encountering has not been caused by the Coronavirus. As I have stressed in many articles recently, Coronavirus is just the catalyst, albeit the most vicious one which could have hit the world. The real cause of the Greatest Financial Crisis in history is the Central Banks. They have been pouring fuel on the fire for 50 years by continuously reducing the cost of money until it became free in 2008 when rates were reduced to ZERO. Since then we have also seen negative rates around the world. Negative rates are not just a total paradox but also absolute lunacy. Bankrupt sovereign nations around the world have been issuing debt at no cost or have even been paid for it. The whole purpose of interest is to be paid for the risk of lending money. As governments around the world have issued virtually unlimited debt which will never be repaid, the risk of lending to them has increased exponentially. But instead of much higher rates to reflect severely elevated risk plus massive increase in debt, central banks have gotten away with defying the laws of nature. 

FALSE MARKETS WITH NO REAL PRICES Money is a commodity and the price should be a direct function of risk plus supply and demand. But since we currently have a false financial system with fake money and false markets, there are no real prices. So through constant manipulation and intervention central banks together with a few accomplices can totally rig most markets and prices… Therefore, the cost of money today neither reflects the risk nor the demand. All it represents is malicious manipulation to serve governments and their masters the central bankers. But like all fake markets, also this one will end, not just badly but catastrophically.

THE SITUATION IS DESPERATE FOR BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS

As I discussed in last week’s KWN article, we now have the perfect storm. Virtually every government in the world is now committing billions and even trillions of dollars, euros, etc, in fruitless attempts to save a collapsing world economy. In many countries, 50% or more of industry is shut. Most service industries are in a total lockdown and so is aviation, transport, and most small businesses. Unemployment is approaching rates not seen since the 1930s depression. All businesses need assistance, from major corporations to small firms. The majority of individuals haven’t got savings for more than a couple of weeks living, and for the ones who are now becoming unemployed, the situation is desperate. Many major US corporations need assistance from the government. Very few of these have put aside profits to reserves for a rainy day. Instead management has been too generously rewarded as well as the shareholders. Since 2009, S&P 500 companies have spent $5.4 trillion in share buybacks. Instead of asking government for assistance, management should pay back their bonuses and shareholders who have received major payouts should recapitalise the companies. But this will obviously not happen. Just like in 2006-9, profits are privatised and losses are socialised. Businesses are hemorrhaging cash and so are individuals. All that becomes a vicious circle with bills not being paid, including rents, mortgages and taxes. Estimates predict a 40-50% fall in second quarter GDP in the US. The problem is that this is not a temporary crisis. This means that GDP will see permanent erosion of a major magnitude in most countries.

SECULAR DOWNTURN LEADING TO HYPERINFLATIONARY DEPRESSION

So what we are experiencing is the start of a secular downturn which soon will become a hyperinflationary depression. This was always the inevitable end to this cycle as I have discussed in many articles for over 20 years. A crisis of this magnitude is always a debt crisis. Very soon we will see debt around the world come under enormous pressure as borrowers start defaulting. This will lead to bonds crashing and rates surging. Central banks will then lose control of interest rates as long rates first go up, and soon also pulling the shorter rates up. Rates can easily go to 15-20%. Many bonds will go to zero and rates to infinity. I have previously talked about paying 21% on my first mortgage in the UK in 1974, so I have personal experience of high inflation but never hyperinflation. Since the majority of the $1.5 quadrillion derivatives market is interest related, this market will also blow up. All of this will lead to unlimited money printing and currencies crashing fast to their intrinsic value of ZERO. At that point the entire financial system will be unrecognisable and parts of it nonexistent. All of this could happen very quickly, probably within the next 6-18 months. 2006-9 WAS A REHEARSAL

Could this Cassandra forecast be wrong? Yes, of course it could. But let’s be clear that the rehearsal of what I am predicting took place in 2006-9. Nothing was resolved at that point, just temporarily deferred. This is now the real thing and whatever money central banks print this time will have no effect. So I doubt very much that our banker friends can pull another rabbit out of the hat again because the only trick they know (to print more money) can never solve a debt problem.

MARKETS Stock markets, in their first leg down of the new secular bear market, reached a 40% loss in most countries in less than 4 weeks. We are now seeing a typical correction that can go a bit higher. But when that is finished, which could take 1-3 weeks, the next devastating downleg will start. Anyone trying to catch this falling knife will be slaughtered. Bond markets might hold up for a bit longer with massive central bank manipulation and money printing. Junk bonds will first start crashing and constant downgrades will turn a lot of debt to junk. Much of corporate debt will go the same way and within 6-12 months sovereign debt will come under attack. Property markets are a major bubble and are already starting to disintegrate. Industrial, commercial, retail and residential, no sector will be spared. There will be no buyers, no financing and many forced sellers — a perfect recipe for a collapse. Before the secular bear market has bottomed in these three markets, prices will be down 90-100% in real terms. And real terms means in constant purchasing power like gold. We must remember that markets will bottom long before the economy. The likely development is first a hyperinflationary depression that could come and go very quickly within the next couple of years. Thereafter we will most probably see a deflationary implosion of all assets and a collapse of most of the financial system. But we mustn’t believe that this is the end. It is just another phase in the world economy to correct excesses of the 100 or 300 years or even 2000 years. Once debt has imploded and all asset prices have come down from current fantasy valuations, a new system will emerge built on sound values and principles. And then the cycle starts all over again.

GOLD There are currently severe pressures in both the paper gold market and the physical market. The Comex and LBMA are making noises that everything is under control. LBMA is giving the illusion that they have plenty of gold in their vaults. But virtually all of that gold is already committed. Comex, the gold futures exchange, is under tremendous pressure since they can’t deliver more than a small fraction in physical when paper holders of gold demand delivery, and that day is not far away.  If we just take the Gold ETFs as an example, they increased their holdings by 93 tonnes in the last 4 weeks. That represents a total value of $5 billion. The 3 biggest refiners in the world based in Ticino, Switzerland have been closed for 2 1/2 weeks, representing at least 50% of world production. It is today virtually impossible to get hold of physical gold, so you wonder where the ETFs have bought their gold. The answer is of course simple. It was lent to them by LBMA banks, which are custodians for the biggest gold ETF GLD. These banks also hold central bank gold and all they need to do is to lend the same gold yet one more time to the ETFs. So if you hold a gold ETF, which you must never do, that it is unlikely to be backed by gold for more than a small portion of the fund total. In a world where prices of most assets are about to implode, gold is life insurance and virtually the only asset that will maintain its value in real terms. Silver is also likely to do very well and will most likely outperform gold. But gold is safer and much less volatile. As I have expressed before, I have been standing on a soap box for 20 years in my attempt to inform investors of the critical importance of gold for wealth preservation purposes. Fortunately many investors have listened, but they still represent less than 0.5% of world financial assets. Since we started 18 years ago, gold is up 6-7X depending on the currency. That rise is insignificant compared to what is coming next. But remember you are not holding gold to measure the gains in debased paper money. Instead you are holding physical gold as insurance against a broken financial system that is unlikely to be repaired for a very long time…For those who would like to read more of Egon von Greyerz’s fantastic articles CLICK HERE.

FOURTH TURNING ACCELERATING TOWARDS CLIMAX

“At some point, America’s short-term Crisis psychology will catch up to the long-term post-Unraveling fundamentals. This might result in a Great Devaluation, a severe drop in the market price of most financial and real assets. This devaluation could be a short but horrific panic, a free-falling price in a market with no buyers. Or it could be a series of downward ratchets linked to political events that sequentially knock the supports out from under the residual popular trust in the system. As assets devalue, trust will further disintegrate, which will cause assets to devalue further, and so on. Every slide in asset prices, employment, and production will give every generation cause to grow more alarmed.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning I’ve been writing articles about the Fourth Turning for over a decade and nothing has happened since its tumultuous onset in 2008, with the global financial collapse, created by the Federal Reserve and their Wall Street co-conspirator owners, that has not followed along the path described by Strauss and Howe in their 1997 book – The Fourth Turning.  Like molten lava bursting forth from a long dormant (80 years) volcano, the core elements of this Fourth Turning continue to flow along channels of distress, long ago built by bad decisions, corrupt politicians and the greed of bankers. The molten ingredients of this Crisis have been the central drivers since 2008 and this second major eruption is flowing along the same route. The core elements are debt, civic decay, and global disorder, just as Strauss & Howe anticipated over two decades ago.  “In retrospect, the spark might seem as ominous as a financial crash, as ordinary as a national election, or as trivial as a Tea Party. The catalyst will unfold according to a basic Crisis dynamic that underlies all of these scenarios: An initial spark will trigger a chain reaction of unyielding responses and further emergencies. The core elements of these scenarios (debt, civic decay, global disorder) will matter more than the details, which the catalyst will juxtapose and connect in some unknowable way. If foreign societies are also entering a Fourth Turning, this could accelerate the chain reaction. At home and abroad, these events will reflect the tearing of the civic fabric at points of extreme vulnerability – problem areas where America will have neglected, denied, or delayed needed action.” – The Fourth Turning – Strauss & Howe The initial spark for this Crisis was the massive mortgage fraud perpetrated on the nation by the Wall Street banks and enabled by their drug dealer at the FedBen Bernanke. Once he took his Wall Street payoff, becoming a multi-millionaire after departing the Eccles building and reaping his rewards (aka bribes), Yellen stepped into the breach, shoveling billions into the deep pockets of the ruling elite. QE to infinity for the connected billionaire set and .25% interest on granny’s dwindling retirement nest egg. Then another spineless academic dweeb took over the reins of money printing for the .1% in 2018. Jerome Powell had the gall to raise rates all the way back to 2.25% and wind the Fed’s balance sheet all the way down to $3.8 trillion from $4.5 trillion, before he was sternly told who he works for. And it’s not you and me. I wonder what threats were made to convince him to fall into line. The financial engine driving the American economy blew a gasket in September 2019. Overnight repo rates soared to 10%, indicating a major malfunction under the hood, threatening the wealth and safety of our beloved Wall Street bankers and billionaire hedge fund managers, picking up nickels in front of steamrollers. Jerome jumped into action, to save his billionaire owners. The QT was turned off and QE spigot was back on. He ramped the Fed’s balance sheet by over $400 billion in three months, with three 25 basis point cuts going into 2020. Those in the know understood there were major problems in the financial system, as excessive risk taking, non-existent banking oversight by the Fed, and more corporate, consumer and government debt that could never be serviced, pushing the Ponzi scheme engine to the brink. Then lo and behold the China flu arrived as cover for another plunder and pillage subversion perpetrated against the American people by the ruling oligarchs.

Powell, Mnuchin and their buddies at Goldman, Blackrock, JP Morgan and the rest of the banking cabal looked back at what Bernanke, Paulson, Blankfein, and their cohorts pulled off in 2008/2009 and said hold my beer. The chutzpah of what they have done in two months is breathtaking to behold, as the greatest wealth transfer from the former working class to the champagne and caviar class in the history of mankind has been executed with precision and flawlessness by high tech criminals and their propaganda spewing corporate media compatriots. This global pandemic is the crisis they couldn’t let go to waste. There is a myriad of theories on where, how, and why this global pandemic began. The accidental release of the virus from a bio-weapons lab in Wuhan appears to be the most likely scenario, with the Chinese authorities covering up the nature and seriousness of the virus and allowing infected citizens to spread it throughout the world. This narrative will likely play into the bloody climax of this Fourth Turning. What we do know for sure is Trump was convinced by government bureaucrat medical “experts”, using seriously flawed models, that more than 2 million Americans would die unless he quarantined the entire nation. Extrapolating the disastrous NYC results across the entire U.S. and shutting down the entire economy will prove to be one of the most disastrous decisions ever made by a U.S. president. Instead of addressing a virus only marginally more lethal than the yearly flu in a rational fact-based manner, we allowed ourselves to be snowed by “experts” and authoritarian politicians who originally downplayed the threat, instructed everyone to not use face masks, and purposely put infected patients into nursing homes. Cuomo is hailed as a hero by his brother’s joke of a news network, when he should be scorned as an inept bungler who caused the deaths of thousands. Democrat politicians declared racism when Trump tried to shut the borders. Instead of protecting the most vulnerable in nursing homes (40% to 50% of all fatalities), closing the borders, encouraging the vulnerable to self- quarantine, encouraging people to wear masks, and letting those under 50 years old continue to work and keep the economy from crashing, we used the Chinese tyrannical method of total lockdown. We let the overbearing reach of government and the egomaniacal authoritarian governors, mayors and Karens lockdown an entire nation under the threat of incarceration. They had plenty of room in the prisons because they released pedophiles, rapists, and thieves for fear they might catch the virus. The government hammer saw everyone as a nail. And they have been hammering away for two months, with plans to keep hammering for many months to come. The corporate fascists have utilized the government-imposed shutdown to implement their plan to increase and consolidate their power, control and wealth. The first order of business was the Fed using the shutdown as its excuse to buy the toxic assets, junk bonds, and junk government treasuries in order to bail out hedge fund managers, Wall Street CEOs and government politicians dishing out $4 trillion of payoffs to constituents with the best lobbyists. The 32% drop in the stock market in March was unacceptable to Powell and his minions. They vowed to do whatever it took to restore the billions in wealth of the .1%. The bottom 99% be damned. Everyone knows you can’t catch coronavirus at Wal-Mart or Target among hundreds of shoppers, but can catch it alone on the beach or in your local hair salon with three people in the shop. So, Jerome and Neel decided to slash interest rates by 150 basis points, back to virtually 0%. So much for senior citizens getting 2% in their money market fund; Wall Street needed free money again. They’ve increased their balance sheet by $2.7 trillion in seven weeks, a 65% increase. Shockingly, the stock market has skyrocketed along with the Fed balance sheet, as 33 million non-essential workers have lost their jobs and we enter a 2nd Great Depression. The Fed pretends to care about wealth inequality even though they are solely responsible for the grand-canyon like divergence between the super-rich and the rest of us. Their vow to pump $6 trillion into the financial system will only benefit the Hamptons crowd. Lance Roberts describes what is happening: “To no one’s real surprise, the driver of the market is simply “The Fed.” As the Fed engages in “QE,” it increases the “excess reserves” of banks. Since banks are NOT lending to consumers or businesses, that excess liquidity flows into the stock market.” And there you have it. Bailing out Wall Street and screwing Main Street, again. Everything the Fed has done, or will do, does not benefit the 33 million who have lost their jobs and the millions of small businesses which are purposely being snuffed out by tyrannical government overlords, so the mega-corporations, with their patriotic “we’re in this together” bullshit Madison Avenue identical ad campaigns, will be left with 90% of the economic pie instead of the 75% they had before the plandemic. Even the worst employment figures since the Great Depression (last Fourth Turning) were spun by the government drones at the BLS to appear far better than they really are. The reported 14.7% unemployment rate is complete and utter bullshit fake news. But the mouthpieces for the oligarchs, the propaganda media outlets, had their spokesmodels and talking head “experts” report the gibberish as if it were true. Maybe these faux financial journalists should have examined the 42-page press release and found the BLS purposely fudged the number by 5%: If the workers who were recorded as employed but absent from work due to “other reasons” (over and above the number absent for other reasons in a typical April) had been classified as unemployed on temporary layoff, the overall unemployment rate would have been almost 5 percentage points higher than reported (on a not seasonally adjusted basis). So that means even the massaged and manipulated BLS number is 20%. One look at the data shows how ludicrously low they have manipulated the number. The BLS reported the labor force as 164.5 million in February and now says it is 156.5 million. Poof!!! – 8.3 million people willingly left the workforce because they felt like it – not because they were forced out of the workforce by the same government paying the BLS to spew this fake data. These people did not leave the workforce, they are unemployed by government mandate. The number of employed people is now back to 1999 levels and headed lower. And as if you didn’t already know, the job losses have been borne mostly by blue collar, retail and restaurant workers (heavily skewed towards women and young people), self-employed, and small businesses.

Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, Wall Street banks and the rest of the mega-corporations are doing just fine – even better since they don’t have those pesky small businesses eating into their profits. At least the Fed was able to propel the stock market 455 points, back towards all-time highs, as 33 million people wonder where their next meal will come from. Winning!!! The plain simple fact is there are 260 million working age Americans and 127 million, or 49% are not working. Of the 133 million who are working, 23 million are part-time workers and 19 million are government workers. In another shocking development, while the number of workers in private industries dropped by 18%, the number of government workers only dropped by 8%. It seems our authoritarian rulers know what is good for us, but don’t feel the need to share the pain equally. But at least our beloved government heroes have time to stage daily parades with their fire engines and $70,000 police vehicles and do patriotic flyovers to keep the unemployed and mandatorily masked plebs entertained. Something has to make up for the lack of the normal bread and circuses of double bacon cheeseburgers and watching overpaid privileged athletes play games. I can’t wait to see more tik-tok dance videos from the hero nurses and doctors overwhelmed with coronavirus patients in their empty hospitals. If you don’t feel the mood of the country turning towards confrontation and civil chaos, you are either a lackey for the establishment, a government paid drone, or propagandized to such an extent you have chosen to be willfully ignorant of your surroundings. This Fourth Turning seemed somewhat dormant since 2012, but government, corporate, and consumer debt continued to balloon; the divide between left and right grew as the Deep State conducted a coup against a duly elected president; and global disorder accelerated in the Middle East, Europe, Asia and South America. The core elements of debt, civic decay, and global disorder are now coalescing into a perfect storm of consequences for a nation and world built upon a teetering edifice of unpayable debt, unfulfilled promises, the unbridled greed of a blood thirsty ruling class, and the unbelievable delusions of people who think a world built upon borrowing to consume is sustainable. The dichotomy between what is happening in the real world and what is happening in the world of the financiers will lead to violent upheaval on a timeline not anticipated by the ruling class. There is a good reason gun stores were overwhelmed with business at the outset of this over-hyped flu pandemic. As Strauss and Howe pointed out twenty three years ago, trust in the government, central bankers, the corporate media, and “experts” is disintegrating rapidly. The anger and disillusionment grows by the day and pockets of resistance are propagating throughout the country. The un-Constitutional destruction of rights and liberties by overbearing governors, mayors and Federal bureaucrats is pushing desperate citizens towards insurrection. The police who carry out the unlawful orders of their superiors for a paycheck should realize they live among those they are bullying and pushing around. There is blowback coming and they should act accordingly. When people have lost everything they had and any hope for the future, while witnessing the privileged continuing to reap the benefits of a rigged financial system, civil disobedience will increase and blood will begin to be shed. The bubble of abnormalcy will be popped. It is weirdly fascinating to watch a Fourth Turning unfold, while in the midst of it, and knowing we are entering the phase where people have died in numbers that put this pandemic fatality count to shame during the previous two American Crisis periods. From 1861 to 1865 almost 5% of the male population of the country were killed. That would equate to about 8 million today. From 1939 to 1945 an estimated 65 million people were killed. The 100,000 or so who will die in 2020 from this virus is just a prelude to the death and destruction to follow. The trigger for the climactic phase of this Fourth Turning is not a virus that will not kill 99.97% of the American population, but the economic consequences of the over-reaction and authoritarian response to the virus. I’ve lost respect for numerous bloggers who desperately try to paint Sweden’s response as disastrous in an effort to support their own narrative of doom.

Sweden’s decision to allow its people and businesses to use reasonable precautions and not lock down their country in the dictatorial Chinese way, has resulted in cases per million being in line with the rest of European countries and lower than the U.S. The louder these bloggers scream, the surer you can be they have been proven wrong. It is mesmerizing to watch those on the left, along with the Republican “Never Trumpers”, flail about as the Obama/Clinton attempted coup against Trump unravels before their very eyes. The reaction of these people, along with their toadies at CNN, MSNBC and the other left wing media, reveals an unbridgeable chasm between those believing in the rule of law and people who are willing to do anything for power. The pure hatred from those on the left for Trump and his followers can not be contained. They despise the deplorables in flyover country with such a passion, the spittle foaming on their lips as they describe them as gun toting, uneducated, white racists, is an indication of their fury and hate. What these entitled, suit wearing, botox injected, arrogant idiot yet idiot establishment whores fail to realize is we despise them equally and we’re armed and ready. While psychopaths in suits, worthless politicians , government errand boys and remote working white collar parasites of the establishment continue to get paid, they continue to prohibit the lowly wage earner from making a living. A price will be paid. Trump is not a nice guy. Grey Champions (Lincoln, FDR) use their power in ways not conducive to making everyone happy. They are leading during a time of crisis and will use any means necessary to win. The coup attempt by Obama, Clinton, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Mueller, and their minions has failed and now the tables will be turned. Trump, Barr, Grennell and Durham have the power to prosecute some of the most powerful left wing politicians and Deep State operatives on the planet. How this plays out before November will ignite further civil strife and discontent. People have already begun taking to the streets and as this unnecessary shutdown further impoverishes the masses, things will turn nasty. Government attempting to have neighbors rat on neighbors for not obeying the Nanny State commands will backfire on the rats. Animosities and grudges will sway the actions of many, once the gloves come off.  The majority of rule following sheep believe what they are being told by their elected leaders, non-elected self proclaimed medical “experts” and the feckless shills on their boob tube. They do not see what is coming, just over the horizon. The divergence of opinion on how we should proceed from this point onward is immense, with biases, delusions, and inability to grasp the unintended consequences of the actions taken thus far, driving the narratives. Listening to Trump bloviate about the tremendous economic boom which will occur when we re-open the country is laughable. He sounds like a carnival barker. He allowed himself to be bamboozled by medical “expert” hacks and their immensely flawed garbage in-garbage out models into destroying our economy, and he may end up paying the price in November as the economy is mired in a 2nd Great Depression. But the Dow should be at 50,000 by then, so he’s got that going for him. Trump thinks you can turn the economy on again and things will be as good as new. He evidently has never read Bastiat or Hazlitt. The broken window fallacy now can be called the broken country fallacy. The financial gurus crow about the fantastic job Powell and Mnuchin have done, based upon what they have seen (31% increase in S&P 500), while that which is unseen has yet to reveal itself.

1,300 Test Positive in Tennessee Prison: 98% Asymptomatic

May 5, 2020/by Daniel Horowitz

Updated: After the publication of this article, it was reported that one inmate at the Trousdale prison in Tennessee has died of COVID-19. Six others have been hospitalized, and one of them is in serious condition. 1 out of 1,300 is a remarkably low fatality rate. The inmate who died was reportedly 67 years old. The original article is below. Lots of cases, very small number of deaths. That is how this virus works on all but the elderly and sick. The perfect case study? Prisons. The ACLU is demanding that all prisoners be released because they might catch the insanely deadly virus COVID-19 and all die. Well, in fact, the ACLU is more correct than they realize, so much so that they are completely wrong. It’s true that SARS-CoV-2 spreads like wildfire in a confined population, but that horse has already left the barn. It is likely that hundreds of thousands of prisoners have contracted the virus, most are asymptomatic, and only a decimal of a decimal die. Thus, the fact that it has spread far and wide actually demonstrates that this is not the bubonic plague many people think it is, so long as you shield the most vulnerable people. In what should be a national headline, the Trousdale Turner Correctional Center in Hartsville, Tennessee, tested every single inmate and found that out of 2,444 tests, 1,299 inmates tested positive. That is 53% of the inmates! Among the staff, it was 50 out of 281, with a few more pending results. Here’s the kicker: 98% were asymptomatic! It is, therefore, quite evident that this virus has been spreading for quite some time in this prison, and yet nobody has died: Not one person out of over 1,300 staff and inmates infected. Numerous serology study results have been extrapolated to show that when you account for the true number of people who have gotten this virus, the infection fatality rate drops to 0.1%-0.3%. And the deaths are very lopsided among the elderly and chronically ill, which indicates that younger and healthier people have an even lower risk of dying from COVID-19 – perhaps even 1 in 3,000, depending on the age or health status. This latest case study from Tennessee proves the point. Many media pseudo-academics have cast doubt on the accuracy of serology tests and using them to extrapolate for the broader population. But there is no better case study than a prison, where you can test the entirety of an isolated population and get exact percentages. We are seeing this across all state and federal prisons. It’s basic math. For example, we know that 70 percent of the roughly 2,700 federal inmates who got tested for COVID-19 were positive. There are 146,000 federal inmates in total. How many of those have the virus? We don’t know yet, but after the virus has been spreading for months in close confinement, that number has to be enormous. According to Rep. Fred Keller, 33 federal inmates have died from the virus. If 70 percent of this confined and defined universe had the virus, that would mean the fatality rate is a remarkable 0.03 percent. But even if we assume only 20 percent of the total federal prison population had the virus, which is roughly in line with the rate in other confined environments, such as the USS Theodore Roosevelt and the Diamond Princess cruise ship (and in line with the staff infection rate in the Tennessee prison), it would still be a fatality rate of just 0.1%, or 1 in 1,000. But it’s very likely the ratio of those infected is much higher. According to Reuters, a recent tally of 3,277 inmates in state prison systems in Arkansas, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia who had tested positive for the virus showed that 96 percent of those who tested positive were asymptomatic. Most federal prisoners are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s (80% are under 50), so it makes sense for their fatality rate to be under that of the macro numbers (0.1-0.3%) we are seeing from the serology tests. According to the Marshal Project, 187 prisoners have died from the virus in state prisons. There are roughly 1.2 million state prisoners across the country. Again, if just 20 percent of them have the virus, that would be a 0.08% fatality rate nationwide in state prisons. If we use the 53% infection rate in the Tennessee prison and extrapolate nationally, that would be an infection fatality rate of 0.03%. In one women’s prison in Louisiana, 75% tested positive. While the median age of state prisoners is roughly the same as the national median (38), there are significantly fewer seniors. Roughly 16% of the general population is over 65, while just 2.2% of state prisoners and 2.8% of federal prisoners are over that age. Just 10% of the state prison population is over 55, compared to 29% of the general population. Thus, if anything, the hard data from prisons seems to show that the fatality rate, extrapolated for the general population, is actually correct and that if you isolate the numbers for younger adults, the numbers are even lower. Similarly, not a single detainee in ICE detention facilities has died, despite the fact that 60 percent are testing positive. The government is doing everything it can to obscure the fatality rate and muddle the separation of risk levels so that we can’t better target and prioritize the quarantine. But by hook or by crook, we will find out the truth from an unlikely source, thanks to aggressive ACLU efforts to empty the prisons and ICE detention facilities. The mass hysteria over coronavirus for the entire population might just burn itself out as the truth hits the fan in the nation’s prisons.

The Virus Panic and Skewing of Numbers: What is the Goal of Pushing Mass Hysteria and Lock Down?

May 10, 2020 by Jon Watkins

The Luciferians have an Agenda. Global Depopulation

This Event has been executed to, as they say, “Kill Two Birds With One Stone“!

John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” Many of you know I like to say the “poop is starting to float”. Well, a massive sewer line has finally broken and the truth is spewing forth! But you Communists won’t listen or take heed, you will ride the flow straight to Hell with them, and so be it! What if all the mass panic and skewing the number of dead people is just a planned hoax? What if it is to get your attention diverted from what is happening to the Deep State Rats, to bring on more draconian measures, to set the stage for the appearance of the Anti-Christ? Why are we not hearing anything about the flu numbers? My granddaughter got very sick back in late February. My daughter freaked out thinking it was Covid-19. They went to the clinic and they tested her. They said she had the Flu, gave her a prescription for Tamiflu and all was well. Did they add her to the list of those who have Covid-19? I would bet they did, although the Gestapo did not come and quarantine her and the household! Birx says government is classifying all deaths of patients with Coronavirus as ‘COVID-19’ deaths, regardless of cause “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” Nazi Bastard Joseph Goebbels What if they, the Deep State, devised this, had it ready to go in case their other devious plans to bring down President Trump fell through? What starts out as “Conspiracy Theories”, ends up being “Conspiracy Facts”, as the truth comes out. Author of ‘2.2 million dead’ study bankrolled by Big Pharma Bill Gates Puppets Fascist Fauci and Bolshevik Birx Used Imperial College Model — NOW CONFIRMED AS A COMPLETE FRAUD — To Persuade President Trump to Lock Down Entire US Economy There is however a problem with the latter, the “Facts”. The Conspirators have a lot of time to instill the Fake News and Lies into the minds of really gullible stupid people. Facts do not matter when you are blinded by hatred. Call it Mind Control, Brain Washing, Gaslighting, whatever you chose. Those who do chose to be mentally assaulted daily and mesmerized by the Talking Heads, with Trump Derangement Disease, have now been captured like prey in a spiders web. It eventually develops into Stockholm Syndrome, and it is extremely hard to break the conditioning instilled by said Talking Heads.

Cuomo Admits Latest Coronavirus Cases Were People Obeying Stay at Home Orders

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Nazi Bastard Joseph Goebbels Here is a prime example of the Mind Control: Don Jr. Offers to Walk Woman Down the Aisle After Intolerant Liberal Parents Reject Her Over Her Conservative Fiancé

Donald Trump Jr. offered to walk a woman down the aisle on her wedding day after she posted a video explaining her “liberal” parents rejected her over her conservative fiancé, who she says they “hate.”

“So my parents hate my fiancé because he’s a conservative and they’re liberal and they refuse to go to our wedding,” the woman said, explaining they gave her an ultimatum of “choosing between him or them.”

“So, I chose myself in that I chose what would make me happiest in the long run. And my mother told me I was incapable of being loved or being in a relationship because I was assaulted when I was 17. So, I chose my fiancé, she said, announcing that, because of the rift with her parents, she will be walking herself down the aisle “So, if anyone has a dad that would like to walk me down the aisle, let me know,” she added. Read more at Breitbart News I can’t imagine hating someone that bad that you would shun your own flesh and blood! But all the Communist Democrats do is project hatred on to the mesmerized. It is like this current Plague. It is very contagious, seems to be party specific, and the only cure is a dose of the Holy Ghost will remove this Trump Derangement Disease! There is NO discernment in the Trump administration. Now you may take issue with that statement, but it happens to be true!

If he, or the Vice President, had discernment, they would realize that they are book-ended by wicked people in this Covid-19 task force! Maybe they do and are just scared of the demons in control of those disciples of Lucifer and are blinded! (2nd Corinthians 4:3-5)

Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

The invisible enemy President Trump talks about is not the virus per se. He is correct about it being Invisible and the Enemy, but it is NOT what he thinks it is! If the President, and those around him. had a bit of spiritual discernment, they would know EXACTLY who is the enemy! 1st Corinthians 2:14-16 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” How does one acquire spiritual discernment? You must be Born Again as Jesus said you should be (John 3:1-8) Then the Holy Spirit comes in and helps you to discern spiritual truth. There is a Gift of Discernment that many us have been given. It provides us with a more critical understanding of things around us and the ability to detect deception immediately where it takes others longer to recognize. The gifts of the spirit the Apostle Paul is referring to in the following scripture is THE Holy Spirit, The Comforter, the one who leads us to ALL TRUTH ( John 14:16 – John 14:26 – John 15:26 – John 16:7) the third person in the Trinity! 1st Corinthians 12:4-11 “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.” It is the Principalities, Powers, Rulers of Darkness and Spiritual Wickedness in High places, who are working through human beings to cause evil. Everything that happens in this world, happens first in the spirit, and if you could see into that spirit realm, you would see demons going to and fro! (Job 1:6-7) It amazes me that so many people are ignorant as to identity of the real enemy. Some perhaps are so afraid of him and his kingdom, that they will not come against it in warfare prayer! Every believer should “test the spirits” in ALL matters! We are living in a time when no one can afford to be ignorant of spiritual truth.

1st John 4:1-4 “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.“ CNN fakes news all time. You would not think so, but the Weather Channel does too! YouTube is Desperate to Censor ‘Plandemic’ Documentary Detailing a Chi-Com Virus Corruption Conspiracy YouTube, the streaming video service owned by Google, is desperate to remove an explosive documentary that exposes the key players behind the medical corruption that has fueled the coronavirus pandemic. The documentary centers around Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD, and her work exposing corruption in the medical field. Mikovits wrote an explosive paper about the dangerous use of animal and human fetal tissues in scientific experiments that put her on the medical establishment’s hit list. Mikovits believes that the coronavirus pandemic is an example of what she was warning about decades ago.  “Plandemic” covers Mikovits’ career since she was railroaded by Big Pharma for presenting a dissident opinion regarding their fetal chop shop research. Mikovits said she was arrested, had evidence planted on her, and then was slapped with a gag order in order to prevent her truth from being heard. Read more here Something Very Strange Is Going On With New ‘Strains’ Of COVID-19 – Are What Globalists Consider to Be ‘Useless Eaters’ Being Culled?

Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine – We know that some people see the term “depopulation agenda,” and just wave it away as some type of “conspiracy theory.”

Yet from the Georgia Guidestones (image above) to the direct quotes from some very well known names, to Deagels’ projection showing that “by the year 2025 the US population will be down to 100 million people…with a loss of 237 million people or a 70% depopulation,” as Stefan Stanford recently reported, Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, along with the constant nags about the planet being “over-populated,” there is simply too much searchable and verifiable information to truly doubt there is a depopulation agenda.

Anyone that does doubt this agenda is being willfully ignorant as all they have to do is use any search engine and be capable of clicking links and reading to confirm.

THE ‘USELESS EATERS’

“Useless eaters” is a term often bandied about by conspiracy theorists.. It is also sometimes used by survivalists and wrongly attributed to Henry Kissinger. It is also commonly ascribed to Ted Turner, Adolf Hitler, Thomas Malthus, and Bertrand Russell. Apparently, the term originated in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust as “nutzlose Fresser,” translating to “useless eaters.” It was first used in reference to the T4 program which targeted the terminally ill, the disabled (both physical and mental), mentally ill, and elderly people for “euthanasia”..from rationalwiki.

Remember Obamacare, the “death panels,” and how the elderly were being encouraged to plan for their death (end of life care) rather than trying to extend their lives with medications?

Liberals, leftists and globalists consider the elderly to be “useless eaters.”

The terminally ill, many times given experimental drugs in an attempt to extend their lives and the quality of life, are also considered “useless eaters.” To the globalists it makes no sense to “waste” the medications, the time or the facilities on someone that isn’t producing.

Anyone that doesn’t conform to the globalists/socialist agenda is considered a “useless eater.” After all those pesky climate change deniers are just a waste of space in the minds of the furthest to the left, the communists and the socialists…. aka globalists.

What Will Schools Look Like After COVID? Prison Camps. They’ll Look Like Prison Camps!

(By Daisy Luther) If you’ve been wondering what it will look like when the kids go back to school, one school in Quebec has released their new guidelines and they’re shocking.

Apparently, schools are going to look a lot like prison camps. This is another example of how things will not just “go back to normal.” Everything is changing, including life for our children.  Here are the guidelines one school has laid out.

Schools in Quebec, Canada are reopening on May 19th and one school released its guidelines. This list was submitted by a parent to the Facebook page, Kate for Education. The school was not named for the privacy of the parent. (All emphasis is mine.)  Now if you’re saying to yourself, “This is in Canada. There’s no way this nonsense will happen here in America,” I urge you to remember that the lockdown restrictions in Canada are far less stringent than those in the United States. Look around at the ridiculous rules we already have like stores choosing what items are essential for us to buy. Then tell me “It can’t happen here.”  Here are those reopening guidelines.

To minimize movement, we forecast assigning students to classes nearest the Berlin Street entrance (on all 3 floors if needed only);

Once assigned to a class, students will spend their entire day (including lunchtime) in their assigned seats;

Students must expect to be regrouped based on the number of students returning;

Students must not expect to return to their regular class with their classmates;

Your child may not be with the same teachers as before as several members of our staff will not be returning to school;

Teachers not returning to school will continue working and keeping close contact with students remotely from home as recommended by the government;

Activities completed while in school will not be evaluated or graded;

No physical materials will be transported back and forth between home & school;

Students must include a mini garbage and recycling bag with their lunch in order to collect their personal garbage and dispose of it at home;

All students must bring in their personal, labeled, and filled water bottle as water fountains won’t be available;

Sharing of ALL items (pencils, pens, sharpeners, wax crayons, rulers, toys) is not permitted;

When weather permits, recess breaks will be held outdoors and will entail of walking outside safely distanced from one another in a prearranged pattern;

Gatherings (groups of students together) will not be permitted;

Limited travel throughout the school by all during the day;

Bathroom visits will be monitored/escorted so that proper disinfection by our caretakers can follow before another student uses the facilities;

As per government recommendations, masks and gloves will not be provided;

Students are certainly welcomed to bring these items from home. They are also invited to carry their own personal disinfecting wipes with them if they wish;

Lockers will no longer be used. Students will place their spring/summer jackets behind the chair they will be using & their school bags under their assigned desks;

There will be no cafeteria service or Home & School pizza & frozen yogurt days.

There will be no physical activity taking place in the gym, no art classes (although art and craft projects can be promoted as home suggestions), no library periods, and no drama classes;

No fundraisers or after school activities will take place;

Parent volunteers will not be permitted in school;

We recommend your child brings a book or two of interest from home to read;

Students with fever or flu-like symptoms will be returned home. Read more here You have to wake up people and get your head screwed on straight or you will wake up one day and your God given rights will be stripped from you!

Why are they doing it? Now, here is why the media and all of the Communists are pushing the Numbers Hoax. The axe is starting to come down and I am afraid that since this Pandemic Hoax is failing, they may resort to something far worse!

The following is what it’s all about in a nutshell. They have finally been caught and the Swamp creatures are scared. There is nothing more dangerous than a cornered animal!

Devin Nunes: ‘Walls are Closing In’ on ‘Media Russia Hoax Rats’ – ‘Some Are Scurrying Off…Some are Squealing’ CNS – As the Trump-Russia narrative collapses and evidence mounts that the investigation into the Trump campaign was politically-motivated and baseless, the “Media Russia Hoax Rats” who pushed the narrative are panicking, Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) says.

“There are hundreds of rats that were on the Russia Hoax Ship” – and “very few” genuine investigative journalists looking into how and why the government began investigating the Trump campaign, Rep. Nunes said Tuesday in an interview on the “America First with Sebastian Gorka” show.  And, as more and more holes are being punched in the Russia Hoax Ship, causing it to sink, the media rats are scurrying, Nunes said:  “I haven’t seen the evidence that would justify an investigation into the Trump campaign, at all – because it was made up by the Clinton campaign. Those are just the facts.”  “I really see the walls are closing in, if you follow the media – what I call the ‘Media Russia Hoax Rats’ – you know, some of them are panicking. And, they’re lashing out – every time something happens, they lash out.  “And, look, there’s hundreds of them: there are hundreds of the rats that were on the Russia Hoax Ship that are trying – some are scurrying off, some are quiet, some are squealing.  “But, the bottom line is is that those few journalists that are out there, that’s real investigative journalists, the very, very few that actually got to the bottom of the Russia hoax – they’re turning out to be right.”  What’s more, journalism in America has become so tainted by liberal political bias that even its coveted Pulitzer Prize has been tarnished to the point that “We need to figure out a new award” to honor the work of the few remaining legitimate journalists, Rep. Nunes said: Read more here

Lockdowns Are No Longer About COVID-19: The Goal Is Regime Change and the Introduction of a Reign of Terror for All Deplorables

We have all been awaiting the full implementation of Nazi-Gestapo tactics on the American people in order to keep America locked down and thereby, completing the task of destroying the American economy, beyond repair, after the release of the CHICOM bioweapon.

America Has Been Defeated by the Following Forces  We have seen a partial Nazification of America society, especially in places like Michigan, Texas, Main, New York, Illinois, Georgia, California and Arizona. America is being divided up among different ideologies in multiple domains. Our economic philosophy, since COVID-19, has become communist in which the right to work at your essential job, needed to put food on your children’s table, is regulated by government. However, the corporate elite (banks, box stores such as Walmart, large brokerage houses, Big Pharma, etc) in this country are largely unaffected and the corporate-controlled oligarchy, which dominates our government and controls portions of the Deep State, Congress, Supreme Court, and the Executive Branch. And yes, the corporate oligarchy is dedicated to the overthrow of the Republic, its civil liberties (eg freedom of speech and religious worship) and economic freedom.

What Happens When the People Fear the Government? Robert Griswold and Dave Hodges

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, May 10, 2020 - 21:35.

I recently interviewed Robert Griswold and we discussed a number of topics including:

The cowardly compliance of much of the American public to the illegitmate authority of the state who subsequently decided winners (Walmart) and losers (small businesses and churches) in the present so-called crisis.

The people acting out of fear in mindlessly obeying unconstitutional orders from the government.

The false flag coup even against Maduro designed to neuter Trump's anti-Red Dawn invasion efforts.

The coming election which will be filled with fraud.

Life under the Democrats

The state's villification of the Christian Church

The lack of courage displayed by most Pastors, sho do not come to emulating the spirit of the disciples, in the face of the lockdown.

How Trump is blowing his rel-election chances

Basic equipment and resources needed for survival.

This Pandemic Is The “New 9/11” To Usher In The Globalists End Game

Ominous Signs This Pandemic Is The ‘New 9/11’ We’ve Long Been Warned Was Coming To America To Usher In The Globalists End Game

– Does Anyone Believe These Devils Wouldn’t Plan Something Like This Out For Their Gain?

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

While on Saturday in this ANP story calling for the ‘re-opening of America’, US Navy Veteran John C. Velisek wrote covid-19 “could not have been foreseen”, as one ANP reader pointed out to us in a thought provoking email this morning, there were actually many signs that ‘they’ were planning for this ‘event’ for several years. With Congress wasting no time to turn this mess into an opportunity to create America’s new medical gestapo while re-opened US businesses and offices will look something like China’s ‘social credit systems’, where every move of US workers will be watched as the Wall Street Journal pointed out in this new story, as R.X. Kendrick pointed out in this May 9th ANP story, the globalists ‘brave new world’ is now coming into sharp, clear focus. As Susan Duclos had mentioned in this May 5th ANP story, there are so many oddities and bizarre things surrounding this ‘virus’ and with a seemingly endless list of symptoms that could make a person simply suffering a sneezing attack or a cough make themselves or those around them believe they had been struck by covid-19, millions of Americans are being transformed into hypochondriacs. So we’ll be taking a look within this ANP story at some of the latest ‘oddities’ surrounding this ‘pandemic’, including what may be a new disease outbreak happening now in Hong Kong where people are becoming ill with rat hepatitis for the 1st time ever and doctors have no idea how, but first, no one can argue that this pandemic ISN’T being used to bring in tyranny and a notched up ‘surveillance state’ to America. From this Wall Street Journal story titled “Welcome Back to the Office. Your Every Move Will Be Watched.” Many Americans heading back to the factory and the office as the coronavirus pandemic eases will soon begin to notice that their every move is being watched or recorded. In Midtown Manhattan, thermal cameras will measure body temperatures as employees file into a 32-story office tower at Rockefeller Center. The building’s owner, RXR Realty, said it is also developing a mobile app for tenants to monitor—and score—how closely their workers are complying with social distancing. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP said it is preparing to launch this month a phone app for employers that traces contacts by analyzing workers’ interactions in the office. More than 50 clients have expressed interest, including some of the nation’s biggest banks, manufacturers and energy companies. Many office workers have become used to widespread security cameras and keycards that register entries and exits. After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, buildings installed enhanced security measures, including logging in visitors and X-raying briefcases. The arrival of Covid-19 is taking surveillance to a higher level, with some employers planning to track movements and gather personal information like never before in Western democracies. It marks a new chapter in the debate over privacy, and the trade-offs people are willing to make for safety.

Eternal Hallelujah

By Hal Lindsey

Jonathon Edwards said, “You contribute nothing to your salvation except the sin that made it necessary.” That’s a humbling statement, but true. It’s humbling because we like to pay our own way. But when it comes to salvation, we can’t. We don’t have the resources. So, Jesus paid the price for us. We can either accept that gift or reject it. But we need to know that it is a gift. Jonathon Edwards helps put that in perspective, too. He said, “If there be ground for you to trust, as you do, in your own righteousness, then all that Christ did to purchase salvation, and all that God did from the fall of man to prepare the way for it, is in vain.” Why would God go to all the trouble? Why would Jesus bother to die a horribly painful, cruel, and humiliating death on the cross if we could be good enough on our own? If we could pay our own way, why did He have to pay with His life? God is perfectly just. It is an essential part of His nature. As humans, we are only partly aware of the extent of evil in any sin. When we hear of child molesters, or terrorists beheading their innocent victims, we get but a glimpse of sin’s awfulness. God sees it fully. He sees all of it for what it is. And He has pronounced judgment on it. But God also loves us. Jesus, God the Son, came to earth as a human being, lived a perfect life, and then took the full weight of God’s judgment against sin onto Himself. That’s why John the Baptist introduced Jesus to the world with the words, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” (John 1:29)

His audience should have understood from centuries of animal sacrifice the meaning of the words, “Lamb of God.” Jesus would cover our sin with His blood. The first verse of the Book of Revelation tells us its true title — “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.” The English word “revelation” is a translation of the Greek word, “apokalupsis.” That’s where we get the word, “apocalypse.” “Revelation” is a good translation. It means “unveiling” or “disclosure.” It is a revealing of Jesus. Here’s one of the things it reveals. Twenty-four times in the Book of Revelation alone, Jesus is referred to as “the Lamb.”

Revelation 19:1 says, “After these things I heard, as it were, a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, ‘Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God.’”

Salvation belongs to God. It does not belong to you. God wants you to be a good person. He wants you to be moral, ethical, kind, and loving. But those things are the result of His salvation, not the cause of it. Salvation belongs to God. It was purchased fully on the cross of Christ. It can be yours only as a gift.

Moments before Jesus took His last breath, He cried out from the cross, “It is finished!” (John 19:30) He used the Greek word, “tetelestai.” It means “Paid in full!” Jesus took our certificate of debt and wrote across it in His own blood, “Paid in full.” When we receive His pardon, we can never be tried for our sins again. It’s settled forever in heaven by the blood of the only begotten Son of God. The New Living Translation says it well in Colossians 2:14. “He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.” All your sins and failings — past, present, and future — were nailed to the cross. Jesus paid the price forever. That’s why we sing “Hallelujah.” And that’s why we will sing it forever!

God’s Timeline

In all of history, only at the end of World War II did the world order change shape as rapidly as it is changing right now. And those changes were set up by a global war. Today’s changes have come, seemingly, out of the blue. Yet, every day the world looks more like the one described in the Bible as existing during the time of the tribulation. For decades, I have been teaching that these changes would come. But even for me, the pace and scope of change over the last few weeks has been stunning.

In Matthew 24 and 25, Jesus spoke extensively about His second coming. He included a list of signs. In chapter 24, verses 4-7, Jesus gave what have since become the most famous of those signs. He spoke of wars and rumors of wars, people groups rising up against other people groups, countries against countries, and of famines, pestilences, and earthquakes. Then, in verse 8, Jesus said, “All these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.” That’s quoting the New American Standard Bible. In it, the word “merely” has been italicized. The translators weren’t trying to emphasize the word, but to let us know that they had added it. “Merely” is not in the original text. A better reading would be, “These things are the beginning of birth pangs.” As we suffer the present pestilence, we can see that there isn’t anything “mere” about it — except when compared to what’s coming. When Jesus used the expression “birth pangs,” He was comparing the end-times world to a woman in labor. “Birth pangs” are a series of contractions, waves of tightening and relaxing the uterine muscle. The process is called “cervical effacement and dilation.” Relative to the lives of mother and child, it is an extremely brief period. But it can feel like it will never end. It is the painful and difficult transition of the mother’s body that will allow her to give birth. Contractions are usually characterized by an increase in frequency and intensity. If the earth itself and all the people on it are beginning to experience “birth pangs,” it begs the question. What’s being born? And the answer is astounding. The thing being born is a new world. The signs will increase in frequency and intensity right up to the point when Jesus returns. Sounds terrible, right? That’s why the seven-year period leading to the return of Jesus is known as “the tribulation.” Jesus called the last three and a half of those years “great tribulation.” In Matthew 24:21, He said, “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall.” Though we’re beginning to feel the birth pangs, we are not in the tribulation period. Jesus will remove His people out harm’s way before the judgments of tribulation fall on the world. That event is usually called the rapture. After that, people will still come to Christ. For the sake of those post-rapture Christians, the tribulation will end before the destruction of everything. And it will end with suddenness and brilliance. “For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matthew 24:27) There are many extremely specific signs of the second coming, but no signs specific to the rapture. There can’t be. If there were, the event would not be imminent. “Imminent” does not mean it will happen in the next hour. Imminent means that it could happen in the next hour. James 5:8 says, “The coming of the Lord is at hand.” That was almost two thousand years ago, so how could he say, “is at hand”? In this case, “at hand” means imminent. The first part of the Lord’s coming — the rapture — could happen at any time. That means there cannot be any signs yet to be fulfilled before the rapture. Otherwise, it would not be “at hand.” In Luke 12:40, Jesus said, “Be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” Jesus did not say, “Look for signs and when you see them, get ready.” He said, “Be ready.” If you expect to go in the rapture, you may wonder why signs should interest you. If we’re seeing signs of events that will take place after the rapture — and we are — we should be looking up, because it means the rapture must take place very soon!

PLO says cessation of payments to convicted terrorists is 'declaration of war' by Israel

Palestine Liberation Organization: Israel paints violent 'struggle' as terrorism, order to cease paying terrorists is 'declaration of war.'

Dalit Halevi , 09/05/20 23:54

Gaza

Fatah's Revolutionary Council condemned security orders in Judea and Samaria which would expose Palestinian Authority (PA) banks to fines and imprisonment if they continue transferring PA funds to security prisoners' bank accounts. In response to the order, PA banks froze the terrorists' accounts, but promised to reopen them in defiance of the orders banning facilitation of payments to terrorists.  In a statement issued over the weekend, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) claimed the Israeli orders were a "violation and an end to diplomatic and economic agreements" between Israel and the PA. The PLO's Revolutionary Council noted that it sees this step as "a declaration of war against the holiest issue for the Palestinian conscious and existence." It emphasized that the "Palestinian nation" will not allow the order to be implemented, nor will it allow the implementation of additional decisions such as annexing parts of Judea and Samaria, which the PLO sees as expressing the logic of the "criminal and terrorist Zionist occupation." The statement also praised PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' promise that if the PA is left with only a single penny, the money will be transferred to [terrorist] prisoners' families. In addition, the PLO's Revolutionary Council claimed that Israel is using the coronavirus outbreak to implement its "satanic" plans "against our heroic prisoners," and that the "Zionist occupation" has been working for years in the international arena in order to paint the "Palestinian struggle" as terror. Earlier this week it was reported that PA banks began closing the accounts of security prisoners, due to concerns that Israel would punish them for facilitating payments to terrorists. In response, armed activists in the Jenin area sent a threatening message to the banks, demanding that they not cease transferring the payments to the security prisoners' bank accounts.

Israel aghast at Iran cyberattack on civilian water infrastructure — TV report

Hack last month said to be discussed at security cabinet meeting Thursday, with senior officials saying it crossed a red line: ‘This goes against all the codes of war’

By TOI staff 9 May 2020, 9:05 pm

A meeting this week of the high-level security cabinet, the first to be held in months, dealt in part with a recent Iranian cyberattack on Israel’s water infrastructure, Israeli television reported Saturday.  Quoting unnamed senior officials, Channel 13 news said the attack in late April is viewed as a significant escalation by Iran and a crossing of a red line because it targeted civil infrastructure. “This is an attack that goes against all the codes of war. Even from the Iranians we didn’t expect something like this,” an official was quoted saying. The attack did minimal damage, though problems were reported at some facilities in local councils, the officials said. Israel was now weighing how and if to respond, the network said. According to the report, ministers who took part in Thursday’s security cabinet meeting had to sign confidentiality forms. On Thursday, Fox News reported that Iran was behind the attack, with hackers using American servers to carry out the breach. A senior US Department of Energy official told Fox News that the Trump administration was committed to protecting allies from cyberattacks but would not comment on the specific incident, saying an investigation was ongoing. There was no official confirmation of the report by Israeli or US officials. The attack took place on April 24-25 on numerous water and sewage facilities across the country, according to the Ynet news site. At the time, the Water Authority and Israel National Cyber Directorate confirmed an “attempted cyber breach on water command and control systems.” “The attempted attack was dealt with by the Water Authority and National Cyber Directorate. It should be emphasized that there was no harm to the water supply and it operated, and continues to operate, without interruption,” it said. Iran — whose regime avowedly seeks Israel’s destruction — and Israel have engaged in covert cyber-warfare for over a decade, including reported efforts by the Jewish state and US to remotely sabotage the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program. Israel has also in recent weeks stepped up a bombing campaign on Iran-linked forces in Syria, concerned at Iran’s ongoing efforts to establish a potent military presence there from which to attack Israel. The Iranian-funded and -armed Hezbollah terror group faces off against Israel from Lebanon, and Iran backs Palestinian terror groups in the West Bank and Gaza. The Islamic Republic is smarting from one of the world’s most severe COVID-19 outbreaks. Experts have recently warned that the coronavirus pandemic has created a perfect storm for cyberattacks, with millions of people working in unfamiliar, less secure circumstances and eager for information about the virus and with new organizational policies being implemented. Agencies contributed to this report.

Israel's fight with Iran knows no coronavirus crisis

Analysis: With war-torn Syria further weakened by the epidemic, Tehran scrambling to reassert regional power and Moscow struggling to justify its investment in Assad, Jerusalem sees now is the time for decisive action

Alex Fishman | Published: 05.08.20 , 23:05

The series of attacks in Syria attributed to Israel during April seems like a planned policy, and is no longer merely a presumed response to Iranian initiative. It seems it was a planned action, most likely meant to root out any Iranian weeds trying to entrench themselves on Syrian soil via the deployment of pro-Iranian militias on the Golan, resuming Hezbollah operations on the plateau, reinforcing its headquarters and munitions warehouses. Beginning in February, foreign sources reported that Israeli military activity had all but ceased, attributing this to the coronavirus crisis that peaked in Israel around Passover. But since the war Israel is conducting all across the Middle East is far more intricate than mere aerial bombardments, it makes sense the scope of its activities - including reports of mysterious explosions - is apparently far more intense than has been reported by the foreign media. Iranians are also trying to return to the pre-coronavirus routine in Syria. If at the end of March the Revolutionary Guard transport jets were flying medical equipment from China to Tehran, in early April those same aircraft started landing in Damascus as well, carrying military equipment in their cargo holds. Coincidentally or not, the first foreign report of fresh Israeli airstrikes in Damascus also first appeared in early April. Since then, Syria's seaports in Latakia and Banias have also been reopened, bringing fuel and equipment of various kinds from Iran. The Iranian machine is back on its feet in Syria - albeit mostly limping - after it suffered three deadly blows: the deadly coronavirus crisis with its economic and social consequences, the continued U.S. sanctions, and - above all - the oil price crisis.  The Syrian regime is also returning to the game much more scarred than before. Not only is the economic crisis in Syria escalating, but there also seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel due to the lack of an exit plan. The coronavirus crisis has hit Syria no less than other countries in the region - only in the war-torn country, there is no one to collect data or tend to the sick. Syrians stand in line for bread and not for coronavirus testing. Israel could not renew its attributed activity in Syria without Russia's tacit consent. In the fifth year of their sojourn in Syria, as the sun slowly set on the coronavirus epidemic, the Russians have found themselves in a state of deep frustration.

All their expectations of benefiting - especially financially - from their investment in Syria have thus far failed to pan out. In fact, in order to maintain Bashar Assad's rule over Syria, they are now required not only to invest huge amounts of money that they do not have, not only on the military but also on the humanitarian-economic-health crisis that does not seem to have a foreseeable finish line.  The Iranians are the allies of the Russians for the purpose of fighting on Syrian soil but are ultimately an obstacle and competitor in Russian plans for control over Syria and its resources.  Therefore it is currently easier for the Russians to simply ignore the attacks attributed to Israel by its Iranian rival. The Americans have also upped their game in a possible military confrontation with Iran, as the harassment of the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf has led to a clear directive from President Donald Trump: Attack all Iranian vessels. The Iranians for their part blame the United States not only for their economic crisis but also for curbing their ability to obtain medical equipment to deal with the coronavirus outbreak that has ravaged the country. And so the tensions in the Gulf are rising and will continue to do so as June approaches when the International Atomic Energy Agency will release its report on Iranian violations of enriched uranium storage. It is safe to assume there is coordination or understanding between Israel and the United States regarding the pressure put on Iran. Past experience shows that as tensions rise in the Gulf, so do tensions between Israel and Iran on the Syrian front. The circumstances present Israel with the opportunity to weaken Iran's foothold in Syria. This is a strategic opportunity, for even if Iran does seek to respond, it will only create grounds for Israel to conduct a decisive military operation against it across the northern border.

WATCH: California Police Officers At Anti-Lockdown Protest Appear To STAND DOWN After Marine Vet With Megaphone Challenges Their Integrity

Posted 5.03.2020 by Steeve Strange

Wow. Let me just start out by saying that no matter what your individual views on the coronavirus lockdown orders are, this video is going to give you the chills. Protesters in several California cities, including San Francisco, Huntington Beach, and Sacramento rallied on Friday, May 1st, with huge protests against Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom’s hyper restrictive coronavirus stay-at-home order. In Sacramento, the state’s capital, a packed crowd of thousands of protesters faced off with lines of police officers in full riot gear. According to The Guardian, “The California Highway Patrol (CHP) had announced that it would be barring protests at the Sacramento state capitol because of a lack of social distancing by participants at a previous rally, but protesters gathered on the steps of the building regardless, chanting ‘Whose house? Our house!’” “Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!” chanted other Sacramento protesters, according to video footage recorded by California resident Joshua Coleman. In Coleman’s video, a Marine veteran named Cordie Lee Williams can be seen speaking into a megaphone, challenging California police officers to “stand down.” “In the face of tyranny, in the face of freedom, are you going to sit there in your riot gear against peaceful protesters?” asked Williams. “Or are you going to say, ‘you know what, it’s time to stand up for my country. Because I took an oath of office and it said, ‘I will defend all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Williams continued, “You might lose your job, but I’d rather lose my job than lose my soul. What are you going to tell your little boy or your little girl tonight? That you took your baton and you crushed somebody’s skull, who was a mom? Is that what a tough guy does? That’s not what honor, courage, and commitment means in the Marine Corps.” Williams then directly challenged the officers’ integrity, “We always have in the military, we have ‘what’s a lawful order.’ And you’ve gotta check your nutsack when you’re given an order, and you’ve gotta say, ‘is this a lawful order or is this a bullshit order?’ Join the movement! Would you please consider a donation to help us in our fight against the fake news corporate media?

“When something’s a bullshit order, and it doesn’t pass the sniff test,” Williams said, “that’s when you say, ‘Sergeant,’ that’s when you say, ‘Colonel,’ that’s when you say, ‘General,’ that’s when you say, ‘Governor, I’m not doing that. I didn’t sign up for that.” Shortly after Williams challenged the officers to ‘stand down,’ the officers appeared to retreat and leave the location.

David Stockman On The Three Nations Of COVID, & A Windbag Named Fauci

by Tyler Durden

Authored by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog,

If you don’t think our so-called mainstream rulers has gone off the deep end, just consider New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s recent menacing tweets to the orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, which has insisted on holding funerals, including one Monday for a revered 73-year old Rabbi attended by upwards of 2,000 mourners: “Something absolutely unacceptable happened in Williamsburg tonite: a large funeral gathering in the middle of this pandemic,” the mayor said in one post. “When I heard, I went there myself to ensure the crowd was dispersed. And what I saw WILL NOT be tolerated so long as we are fighting the Coronavirus.” My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period. Well, NYC is nearly a ghost town and now its idiotic ruling pols are suggesting that, apparently, only ghosts may attend funerals without governmental permission! But actually, this photo from the offending funeral is another picture worth a thousand words. That’s because by now, everyone, and we mean everyone, knows that the Covid-19 strikes the elderly, the frail and the already disease-afflicted; and that these vulnerable populations need to not only “social distance”, but actually stay home and keep out of harm’s way completely. That appears to be exactly what happened at Rabbi Mertz’ funeral. If you can spot an octogenarian in this crowd, or even a grandfather, your eyesight is better than Clark Kent’s. And besides being preponderantly way under 50-somethings, they congregated outdoors and virtually all were wearing masks. Yet claiming to speak for some latter day “Committee of Public Safety”, Mayor Robespierre actually threatened to bring in the gendarmes.

Hundreds of people gathered in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, for a massive funeral Tuesday evening As to whether the above pictured citizens should be jailed or fined, let’s start with a tale of two Lockdown Nations – New York City and the semi-socialist Republic of California. Both have imposed severe stay-at-home and business shutdown orders almost from the day the Donald issued his unfortunate March 16 guidelines. Yet here are the results 45 days later with respect to their mortality rates, which is ostensibly the reason officialdom issued these draconian “cease and desist” orders in the first place.  To wit, the mortality rate as of April 28 was 143 per 100,000 in New York City and 4.6 per 100,000 in the state of California. Essentially the same public health policy lockdown, but night and day differences in the outcome. Yes, New York is more dense than California on average, but that doesn’t even remotely explain the difference. That’s because by now there is overwhelming evidence that the severity of the quarantine regime has essentially zero impact on the mortality metrics. And folks, even the Virus Patrol hardliners don’t claim their lockdown orders are designed to prevent 3-day hospital stays by people who get an unusually stubborn case of the winter flu. This is about death prevention and that’s why they run the Chyron of Death across the CNN screen day and night.

But there is zero correlation:

California: Heavy lockdown, 4.6 deaths per 100,000;

Iowa: No lockdown, 4.3 deaths per 100,000;

Texas: Light lockdown, 2.4 deaths per 100,000;

Washington state: Heavy lockdown, 10.0 deaths per 100,000;

Colorado: Inconsistent lockdown, 12.2 deaths per 100,000;

Georgia: Late Lockdown now lifted, 10.0 deaths per 100,000;

Maine: Heavy Lockdown, 3.8 deaths per 100,000;

Massachusetts: Heavy Lockdown, 45.7 deaths per 100,000.

We call attention to Washington state, Maine and Massachusetts especially because even though they all have severe statewide lockdown regimes and their overall mortality rates very widely, from 3.8 per 100,000 in Maine to 45.7 per 100,000 in Massachusetts, they do share one thing in common. To wit, 40-60% of their Covid-fatalities have been in nursing homes. In Maine, 53% of Covid deaths were in nursing homes, meaning that the actual Covid-mortality rate for the general population is just 1.8 per 100,000 and in Massachusetts 56% are nursing home fatalities, meaning the general rate is 21 per 100,000. Ironically, Sweden has one of the least restrictive lockdown regimes in the world – schools, businesses, restaurants and retail remain open–yet its mortality rate of 22 per 100,000 is virtually the same as the lockdown state of Massachusetts. Self-evidently, what matters is not how economically suicidal the lockdown regime is from one jurisdiction to the next, but the age, health status and general frailty/vulnerability of the populations at issue. In the case of Washington state where the first corona cases occurred, upwards of 40% of the 690 deaths to date have been in nursing homes, meaning that its general population mortality is just 6.0 per 100,000. As we amplify below, these single-digit rates are rounding errors on the scheme of things, even as all deaths are both regrettable and inevitable. But by what rational calculation does Governor Inslee insist on keeping the state in Lockdown and its economy heading into the the drink? Someone might dare inform him that the general mortality rate from all causes for his citizens is 900 per 100,000 annually, and that, therefore, he is imposing the economic mayhem evident in these charts below owing to a risk of Covid death for the general population of his state that so far has been 0.7% of the normal average. Stated differently, had Patient Zero (aka the Donald) not been the victim of malpractice by his doctors led by Fauci and the Scarf Lady, he might have been advised to dial in on day #1 to the heart of the Covid-threat. Namely, the 15,600 nursing homes in America, which domicile some 1.5 million residents, of which one-quarter (425,00) are over the age of 80 years. In the case of Massachusetts, where the majority of deaths have occurred in nursing homes, the average age of Covid-deaths has been 82 years. Needless to say, you did not need to be entombed in the infectious disease tunnel at the NIH for 52 years like Dr. Fauci, a pretentious 79-year old windbag who should have himself been put in a retirement home years ago, to realize that nursing homes are dense-packed with the frail, disease-afflicted elderly. So rather than wipe out $4 trillion of GDP via Lockdown Nation they might have started with say $25 billion of incremental money for Medicare/Medicaid and the state public health agencies to zero-in on protecting, isolating and treating the nursing home residents. After all, we find it easy to believe that spending $20,000 per nursing home resident might have saved or extended a lot more lives than the WHO/CDC/DR. Fauci blunderbuss assault on the entire US economy. Indeed, with each passing update, the CDC data itself becomes an ever more dispositive indictment of the madness the Donald’s doctors have imposed on the nation. It is now strikingly clear, in fact, that when it comes to Covid-19 there are three nations in America, and that the attempt to shoe-horn them into a one-size fits all regime of state control is tantamount to insane. There is first the Kids Nation of some 61 million persons under 15 years, where even by the CDCs elastic definitions there have been just 5 WITH Covid deaths thru April 28. You needn’t even bother with the zero-ridden fraction of 1 per 100,000 (its actually 0.008) to make the point. That is to say, last year there were about 44,000 deaths among the Kids Nation – so corona-virus accounts for just 0.011% of the total, and in no sane world would it be a reason for shutting down the schools. Of course, the Virus Patrol insists that the school closures are an unfortunate necessity because otherwise the Kids Nation would take the virus home to the Parents/Workers Nation. That is the 215 million citizens between 15 and 64, who account for the overwhelming share of commerce, jobholders and GDP. Yet according to the CDC, there have been just 8,267 deaths WITH Covid in this massive expanse of the population, which figure represents a mortality rate of, well, 3.6 per 100,000.

But here’s the thing. The normal total mortality rate for the 15-64 years old population is 335 per 100,000. So we are talking about shutting down the entire economy owing to a death rate to date which amounts to 1.1% of normal mortality in the Parents/Workers nation. Finally, we have Grandparents/Great Grandparents Nation, comprised of 52 million citizens. But they account for 32,000 or nearly 80% of the WITH Covid deaths as of April 28 – with 15,000 of these being among those 85 years and older. By way of computation, that’s 61 deaths per 100,000 for the group as a whole and 230 per 100,000 for the 85 years and older. Stated differently, the risk of death posed by Covid-19 is 7,600X greater for Grandparents/Great Grandparents Nation overall than for Kids Nation, and 29,000 times greater for the several million Great-Grandparents afflicted with severe comorbidity and likely as not to be in the care of a nursing home. Needless to say, it did not take a catastrophic experiment with Lockdown Nation to figure this out. It was already known from China and the history of other coronaviruses. If there were any reason or justice left in America, Dr. Fauci and the Scarf Lady and the whole CDC/WHO lobby that brought about this disaster would actually be headed for their own quarantine – the kind that doesn’t happen at home and which can’t be lifted by the whims of the Cuomo brothers or Mayor Robespierre.

‘Last Chance to Sell’: Hedge Fund Warns of Impending Stock Market Crash

Hedge fund manager Kevin Smith is extremely bearish on the stock market, and he says this may be your "last chance to sell" before the crash.

The founder of Crescat Capital says the stock market is about to suffer another plunge.

Kevin Smith draws parallels between the S&P 500’s April recovery and the Dow’s short-lived “relief rally” in 1930. The hedge fund bear warns this is your “last chance to sell” before the market begins the next leg of its prolonged crash. The stock market may be flashing some ridiculously bullish signals, but hedge fund bear Kevin Smith is sticking by his prediction that the Dow and S&P 500 are on the verge of a Great Depression-level crash. In fact, the Crescat Capital founder warns, this is your “last chance to sell” before the impending collapse.

Hedge Fund Bear Who Said ‘This Is 1929’ Has Another Doomsday Prediction

The notoriously bearish hedge fund manager shared his apocalyptic prediction on Twitter this week. He predicts that the S&P 500 is about to suffer a technical move called a Fibonacci retracement.

why crescat capital expects the stock market to crash He wrote this early Friday morning, just hours after the stock market closed its best month in 33 years: The macro environment makes me want to be net short today, a recession starting from record valuations and debt. The technical picture only adds to the set-up at this moment, a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement on the S&P 500 from the Feb. 19th top. Resembles the 1930 relief rally. Smith believes that the stock market picture looks eerily similar to the 1930 “relief rally” that followed the initial wave of the “Black Monday” crash. After the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell as low as 198.69 in 1929, the stock market appeared to snap back relatively quickly. It closed the year at 248.48 – more than 25% off its lows, and it rose another 18% as the rally stretched into 1930. But the gains were short-lived. The Dow plunged nearly 50% from its highs by the end of the year. It ultimately became clear that the 1929 crash was the beginning of a devastating bear market that ultimately wiped 89% off the Dow, which bottomed out at 41.22 roughly three years later.

Crescat: Stock Market Looks Eerily Similar to 1930 ‘Relief Rally’ The Crescat founder and CIO says that this story is playing out in the stock market again, nearly a full century later: Should be the last chance to sell near the top on the Fibonacci retest. Just like 1929, only this relief rally happened more quickly. Stocks peaked just two months ago at record valuations and corporate leverage. Still very early in the global recession and bear market. Great Depression comparisons have come into vogue since the coronavirus pandemic forced the U.S. economy into total lockdown. But Smith has been harping on this point since before it was fashionable. And just as he expects the economy to encounter Great Depression-like headwinds, he believes the stock market will suffer a much more pronounced collapse than we saw in February and March. That may have been the Dow’s fastest-ever bear market, but the magnitude of the plunge still pales in comparison to what transpired a century ago. As the Dow rallies off its March lows, hedge fund bear Kevin Smith sees parallels to the 1930 stock market “relief rally” that was incredibly short-lived. | Source: Yahoo Finance

According to Smith, that’s about to change.

Fed stimulus juiced the stock market into a phenomenal April recovery, but Smith alleges that the S&P 500 is still plagued by the same ugly fundamentals that made its early-year ascent so unconvincing – insane valuation multiples and overleveraged corporate balance sheets. Crescat Capital warned in early March that the market was teed up for a collapse long before coronavirus sunk its poisonous fangs into the economy’s longest-ever expansion. The S&P 500’s median enterprise value to sales (EV/sales) ratio had already ballooned twice as high as it did during either the financial crisis or dotcom bubble. All the pandemic did was light the fuse. So forget what history says. This time, Crescat claims, really is different. Maybe that’s why all the “smart money” is sitting on the sidelines.

Hungry Seagulls Kill Pigeons and Rats as Lockdown Deprives Them of Food in Rome, Italy

By Strange Sounds - May 3, 2020

Seagulls in Rome take to killing rats and pigeons…

As the lockdown deprives them of food scraps. Deprived of the juicy scraps left by bars and restaurants that they normally gorge on, Rome’s notoriously aggressive seagulls have become cold-blooded killers. Two months into Italy’s lockdown and with trattorias and cafes all closed, the big gulls are now killing rats and pigeons on the mean streets of the capital. “They are going back to being predators,” said Bruno Cignini, a zoologist from the capital’s Rome University Tor Vergata. “They are catching mostly pigeons but also swallows and black birds. They’re also going after fish in the Tiber. Luckily, they are also eating rats. Animals are changing their habits as we change ours,” he told Corriere della Sera newspaper. From pecking at carrion to killing Rome’s sharp-beaked gulls developed a taste for pigeon and rat in the past but the prey was usually dead – road kill left by the city’s chaotic traffic. The gulls are now switching from pecking at carrion to killing. The species is known in Italian as the Royal Gull but in English as the Yellow-Legged Gull. Their bold behaviour and beady eyes are the stuff of legend in the capital. Matteo Salvini, the head of the centre-Right League party and former deputy prime minister, joked last year that they were “the size of pterodactyls.”

He said he had gone for an evening stroll and “found myself in company with three massive rats – and then there are the aggressive seagulls, which are like pterodactyls.” He was having a dig at Rome City Council, which is run by a mayor from the anti-establishment Five Star Movement. He said the city was in such a state of abandonment that “the only thing we are missing is a plague of locusts.”

Rome has a large menagerie of unwelcome wildlife:

Wild boar snuffle alongside busy roads and menace dog walkers

The Tiber is full of coypu, a South American rodent once kept in farms for its fur

And the parks ring with the squawks of thousands of Ring-necked and Monk Parakeets.

Maybe we will also turn cannibals after the pandemic. More apocalyptic news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [Telegraph, Yahoo]

Several states reopened last week.

Severl more will open at least partially this week from the Fauci lockdown.

But Democrat-led Oregon is not one of them.

Oregon, a state with 4.14 million residents, did not reopen on Friday.

In fact, the liberal state is not reopening anytime soon.

Far Left Oregon Governor Kate Brown is extending the state’s lockdown until JULY 6th!

TWO MORE MONTHS! TRENDING: HUGE UPDATE: Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx Used Imperial College Model -- NOW CONFIRMED AS A COMPLETE FRAUD -- To Persuade President Trump to Lock Down Entire US Economy!

Oregon is ranked 40th in US coronavirus deaths. 40TH!

But there is even more troubling news coming from Oregon.

On April 22nd the state initiated a plan to remove children from foster homes if one of the parents comes down with coronavirus.

The state of Oregon will remove the children and place them with “sustitute care” if the parents are deemed unable to support them.

This law was actually published online on the Oregon Department of Human Services website. It appears Oregon got this idea from WHO executive Michael Ryan.

At the behest of the World Health Organization (WHO) executive director Michael Ryan, Oregon is slated to remove children from homes and place them in “substitute care” if parents are deemed “unable to support them.”

Ryan, who was criticized for stating that governments need to go door-to-door looking for people infected with coronavirus and if found, “Now we need to go and look in families to find those people who may be sick, and remove them and isolate them.”

Our Dress Rehearsal for a Police State

Tue, Apr 28, 2020 • Prager's Column

All my life, I have dismissed paranoids on the right (“America is headed to communism”) and the left (“It can happen here” — referring to fascism). It’s not that I’ve ever believed liberty was guaranteed. Being familiar with history and a pessimist regarding the human condition, I never believed that.

But the ease with which police state tactics have been employed and the equal ease with which most Americans have accepted them have been breathtaking. People will argue that a temporary police state has been justified because of the allegedly unique threat to life posed by the new coronavirus. I do not believe the data will bear that out. Regardless, let us at least agree that we are closer to a police state than ever in American history. “Police state” does not mean totalitarian state. America is not a totalitarian state; we still have many freedoms. In a totalitarian state, this article could not be legally published, and if it were illegally published, I would be imprisoned and/or executed. But we are presently living with all four of the key hallmarks of a police state: No. 1: Draconian laws depriving citizens of elementary civil rights. The federal, state, county and city governments are now restricting almost every freedom except those of travel and speech. Americans have been banned from going to work (and thereby earning a living), meeting in groups (both indoors and outdoors), meeting in their cars in church parking lots to pray and entering state-owned properties such as beaches and parks — among many other prohibitions.

No. 2: A mass media supportive of the state’s messaging and deprivation of rights.

The New York Times, CNN and every other mainstream mass medium — except Fox News, The Wall Street Journal (editorial and opinion pages only) and talk radio — have served the cause of state control over individual Americans’ lives just as Pravda served the Soviet government. In fact, there is almost no more dissent in The New York Times than there was in Pravda. And the Big Tech platforms are removing posts about the virus and potential treatments they deem “misinformation.”

No. 3: Use of police.  Police departments throughout America have agreed to enforce these laws and edicts with what can only be described as frightening alacrity. After hearing me describe police giving summonses to, or even arresting, people for playing baseball with their children on a beach, jogging alone without a mask, or worshipping on Easter while sitting isolated in their cars in a church parking lot, a police officer called my show. He explained that the police have no choice. They must respond to every dispatch they receive. “And why are they dispatched to a person jogging on a beach or sitting alone in a park?” I asked. Because the department was informed about these lawbreakers. “And who told the police about these lawbreakers?” I asked. His answer brings us to the fourth characteristic of a police state:

No. 4: Snitches. How do the police dispatchers learn of lawbreakers such as families playing softball in a public park, lone joggers without face masks, etc.? From their fellow citizens snitching on them. The mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, set up a “snitch line,” whereby New Yorkers were told to send authorities photos of fellow New Yorkers violating any of the quarantine laws. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti similarly encouraged snitching, unabashedly using the term. It is said that about 1 in every 100 East German citizens were informers for the Stasi, the East German secret police, as superbly portrayed in the film “The Lives of Others.” It would be interesting, and, I think, important, to know what percentage of New Yorkers informed on their fellow citizens. Now, again, you may think such a comparison is not morally valid, that de Blasio’s call to New Yorkers to serve a Stasi-like role was morally justified given the coronavirus pandemic. But you cannot deny it is Stasi-like or that, other than identifying spies during World War II, this is unprecedented in American history at anywhere near this level. This past Friday night, I gathered with six others for a Shabbat dinner with friends in Santa Monica, California. On my Friday radio show, I announced I would be doing that, and if I was arrested, it would be worth it. In my most pessimistic dreams, I never imagined that in America, having dinner at a friend’s house would be an act of civil disobedience, perhaps even a criminal act. But that is precisely what happens in a police state. The reason I believe this is a dress rehearsal is that too many Americans appear untroubled by it; the dominant force in America, the left, supports it, and one of the two major political parties has been taken over by the left. Democrats and their supporters have, in effect, announced they will use state power to enforce any law they can to combat the even greater “existential” crisis of global warming. On the CNN website this weekend, in one of the most frightening and fanatical articles in an era of fanaticism, Bill Weir, CNN chief climate correspondent, wrote an open letter to his newborn son. In it, he wrote of his idealized future for America: “completely new forms of power, food, construction, transportation, economics and politics.” You cannot get there without a police state. If you love liberty, you must see that it is jeopardized more than at any time since America’s founding. And that means, among other things, that at this time, a vote for any Democrat is a vote to end liberty. This column was originally posted on Townhall.com.

Communist Democrats in 3 States Push Laws to Force Private Property Owners to Allow Homeless to Live Their Property

Ohio, California, and Oregon are pushing for laws that would force private property owners to allow homeless people to camp out on their property. What’s worst is that if they try to do something about it, they could be arrested. I’d certainly like to know what they’d be arrested for. Two recent court decisions surrounding homelessness may have a big impact on people sleeping on city streets. While the U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to hear a case about criminalizing homelessness, an appeals court ruled encampments are allowed on private property. Kevin Finn has worked to end homelessness in Cincinnati for 21 years. He cautiously applauds the two recent court rulings that address the criminalization of sleeping on the streets. “I don’t think there’s anything helpful about making it a criminal act for people to be sleeping outside if ultimately what we want is for people to get into housing,” said Finn. The Supreme Court will not hear a case on a ban against homeless people sleeping in public spaces. That now means there’s a constitutional right to camp in public. “Filing charges, making things they’re doing illegal, making their police history longer is not helpful for the long-term goal,” said Finn. Ohio’s First District Court of Appeals says governments cannot ban homeless encampments from private property — like Hamilton County did at the New Prospect Baptist Church in 2018. “I don’t think it’s ever a good move to ever try to criminalize people sleeping outside,” said Finn. “But at the same time, a homeless person is three times more likely to die sleeping outside on the streets, so we need to find a balance where we’re not encouraging people to sleep outside in camps either.”

Mike Coudrey @MichaelCoudrey EXPLICIT WARNING ⚠️:

Look at the homeless epidemic in Los Angeles due to failed liberal policies, high taxes, and high crime.

Police are now demanding citizens allow homeless people to camp on their private property, threatening this man with arrest if he moves them.

America, We’re In Trouble – Cattle Rancher Explains That Starvation Is Coming As Millions Of Pounds Of Food Is Being Dumped….

America, ‘We Are In Trouble’ – Cattle Rancher Explains That Starvation Is Coming As Millions Of Pounds Of Food Is Being Dumped From Coast To Coast

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

We’re going to start this article a little differently than usual, as we are seeing dire warnings, not just from writers that have been seeing the writing on the wall regarding food shortages during the national lockdown because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, but from the very people that grow the food that ends up on our tables.  So, we are going to begin this article with a video that a regular reader so kindly sent over to us. A Texas cattle rancher created a video that was published at An American Homestead’s YouTube channel, explaining what is happening to farmers and ranchers from “coast to coast” and warning exactly how dire the situation truly is. This news has been reported, generally in separate articles, or days apart, but when all is seen together, we can see why Mr. Sullivan says “we are in trouble.” Watch him, then below the video I will link to the reports confirming each of his assertions. Mr. Sullivan speaks about vegetable crops having to be plowed under from coast to coast. He is correct as multiple news reports over the last few weeks have confirmed. The UPI headline states “Farmers destroy crops grown for restaurants, hotels.” With the lockdown and social distancing rules state leaders have mandated, many business that usually buy food products from America’s farmers and ranchers in bulk, can no longer do so. U.S. farmers have destroyed millions of pounds of perishable food like tomatoes, lettuce and green beans because growers lost a vast number of customers after the coronavirus pandemic struck. “It’s a catastrophe, it really is,” said Tony DiMare, a long-time tomato grower based in Palm Beach County, Fla.

• He then describes how millions of chickens are having to be euthanized. Business Insider reports that 2 million chickens from one single plant in Deleware have to be euthanized.

That is just one of the hundreds of plants across America having to make that kind of devastating decision because we have created a food supply chain that when any part of it is disrupted collectively, the entire system starts falling apart.

A poultry-processing plant in Delaware has made the “difficult but necessary” decision to kill 2 million chickens as worker shortages push the US meat supply chain toward a breaking point.

Delmarva Poultry Industry Inc., a cooperative that works with about 1,300 farmers, said it looked at all other options, “including allowing another chicken company to transport and process the chickens and taking a partially processed product to rendering facilities to utilize for other animal feed” but ultimately decided on euthanasia.

• The next thing he mentions is how sows are being given abortions, and on April 28, 2020, the New York Post described how farmers are having to kill piglets and give sows abortions because they are running out of space to house their livestock.

• On the same day Bloomberg reported that the “mass hog cull” has begun with meat rotting in landfills.

• Many already know that farmers are having to dump hundreds of thousands of gallons of milk as the “coronavirus has devastated US agriculture,” as CNBC states.

Related: INSIGHT-Piglets aborted, chickens gassed as pandemic slams meat sector

• On top of those items that Mr. Sullivan so succinctly described we see a report at MSN Money,. from Bloomberg, showing that some grocers are now rationing meat and limiting the sale of ground beef and fresh pork in certain areas. Already, some grocers are beginning to ration supplies as the virus forces unprecedented disruptions in meat processing. Kroger Co., the nation’s biggest traditional supermarket chain, on Friday said it was limiting purchases of ground beef and fresh pork “at select stores.” Wholesale prices for both the meats have surged, and it’s starting to translate into higher bills at the retail level.

• Krogers is not the only place where the the rationing has begun, as we see the blaring headline “McDonalds Starts To Ration Meat Amid Supply Chain ‘Concerns’.” Within the article we see the “company has placed items like burgers, bacon and sausage on “controlled allocation,” according to Business Insider. Additionally, the company’s distribution centers have been placed on ‘managed supply’.” When we step back and look at all of those stories together, in one place, it is a little easier to understand the sheer desperation of the ranchers and farmers, forced to kill and destroy their own fruits, vegetables and livestock, which in turn destroys their entire livelihood.

(PLEASE HELP SUPPORT ANP: With Independent Media being censored on almost every internet platform, reader donations are what keeps websites like ANP up and running. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stefan & Susan.)

WHERE IS THE MEDIA?

While I was able to find articles regarding each of these issues, the media reports it then buries under their latest Trump outrage of the day, so worried about attacking the President, they cannot be bothered to help Americans understand what is happening now and what is coming. I had to look up each of those articles individually because places that generate links, such as Drudge Report, has just one article today, Sunday, May 3, 2020, that relates to the upcoming food crisis. Why are most media outlets ignoring the huge elephant in the room, and others are burying their reports when they can be bothered to inform Americans of what is truly happening with our food supply chains? Had the establishment media warned Americans back when the pandemic first began to spread from Wuhan, China, perhaps those same Americans would have had more time to prepare, stock up on items before the panic buying began and stripped shelves of basics like cleaning supplies and toilet paper.

The so-called “mainstream media” has failed spectacularly during this pandemic.

Costco to limit meat purchases amid nationwide outbreak at processing plants

by KOMO News Staff Monday, May 4th 2020

KIRKLAND, Wash. -- The coronavirus outbreak at meat plants nationwide has limited their capacity and has prompted Costco to now impose limits on the amount customers can buy, the company announced Monday. Fresh meat purchases are now temporarily limited to three items among beef, poultry and pork products, their web site says. According to a CDC report released Friday, more than 4,900 workers at meat and poultry processing facilities have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, including 20 who died. The illnesses occurred among 130,000 workers at 115 facilities in 19 states, according to the CDC. Some states didn’t provide data, so the actual count is believed to be higher.  With so many employees staying home because they are sick or worried about getting sick, many plants are operating only at half capacity, says Mark Lauritsen, who directs the meatpackers division at the United Food and Commercial Workers union. President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday ordering meat plants to stay open. Monday is also the date when Costco's mandatory face mask policy went into effect for all customers and employees, with exceptions granted only for those under two or have a health condition that prevents wearing a mask. In addition, the company is expanding their "senior shopping hours" to Monday through Friday from 9-10 a.m. Only guests 60 and older or those who have a health condition that places them at higher risk for COVID-19 exposure will be allowed to shop during that time. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

THE CORONAVIRUS PLANNEDEMIC IS AN ACT OF WAR DESIGNED TO CRASH THE GLOBAL ECONOMIES AND BRING IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER WITH A DIGITAL ID

Jack Metir technology April 23, 2020 4 Minutes

In the United States last week, stimulus checks are going out and I know people who have received them, I have not so far. Those $1,200 checks account for almost $500 billion of the total package, so where did the $1.5 trillion dollars go? They sold this whole thing as something that would primarily ‘benefit the people’, but which people exactly are receiving the other 75% of that massive mountain of money? Here’s something for you to chew on, Jeff Bezos’ wealth increased by $24 billion dollars this week while you were so excited with your $1,200 distraction money. First rule to apply when you need to figure out something that makes no sense is who stands to benefit the most? That’s rule number one. Rule number three is understanding we are living in certified end times, and the New World Order must rise to the forefront. Now figure out what the first two rules are. Here we are at roughly the one month mark since the Plannedemic lockdown here in America went into effect, other nations like Italy, Israel, the UK and others had already been locked down. So what does the view at this level look like? It looks like exactly what I thought it looked like a month ago, a real virus hijacked and weaponized, combined with a worldwide campaign of fear and disinformation designed to make us so afraid that in the ‘fog of war’ we wouldn’t see what the elites we actually doing. ‘Toilet paper shortage’ that’s really a psy-op. But we who have the Holy Spirit saw this coming from a mile away. “Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets; Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.” Acts 13:40,41 (KJB) In the United States this week, stimulus checks are going out and I know people who have received them, I have not so far. Those $1,200 checks account for almost $500 billion of the total package, so where did the $1.5 trillion dollars go?

That’s rule number one. Rule number two is who is in what position after the changes take place. Rule number three is understanding we are living in certified end times, and the New World Order must rise to the forefront. Any questions? From the very beginning we have been lied to by China, by the World Health Organization, by Bill Gates, by Anthony Fauci, by the CDC, by all of them. Time to rouse from slumber, Christian, there’s a war on. New World Order elite Jeff Bezos Gains $24 Billion While World’s Rich Reap Bailout Rewards

FROM YAHOO NEWS: The world’s richest person is getting richer, even in a pandemic, and perhaps because of it. With consumers stuck at home, they’re relying on Jeff Bezos’s Amazon.com Inc. more than ever. The retailer’s stock climbed 5.3% to a record Tuesday, lifting the founder’s net worth to $138.5 billion. The pandemic has brought the global economy to a near standstill and pushed almost 17 million Americans onto the unemployment rolls in the span of three weeks. JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co. signaled Tuesday that loan losses fueled by the unprecedented job cuts — many of them in the retail sector that Amazon so efficiently disrupted — could rival those incurred after the 2008 financial crisis. Yet Jeff Bezos and many of his wealthy peers have seen their fortunes recover in recent weeks, helped by the boost given to markets by unprecedented stimulus efforts by governments and central bankers. While the combined net worth of the world’s 500 richest people has dropped $553 billion this year, it has surged 20% from its low on March 23, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index “The wealth gap, it’s only going to get wider with what’s going on now,” said Matt Maley, chief market strategist at Miller Tabak + Co. “The really wealthy people haven’t had to worry. Yes, they’re less wealthy, but you haven’t had to worry about putting food on the table or keeping a roof over your head.” READ MORE

Which painkillers are safe for you to take?

By LUCY ELKINS, Daily Mail

Over-the-counter painkillers have been a trusted part of most medicine cabinets for decades.

In any year, we swallow 60 paracetamol tablets per person in the UK alone - and 1,000 billion aspirins are taken worldwide annually. They have been hailed as pain relievers and more - yet recently their safe reputation has been called into question. This week, researchers at Harvard University warned that paracetamol and ibuprofen can cause high blood pressure. Earlier this month, the Committee on the Safety of Medicines urged that the age limit at which children are allowed to take aspirin be raised from 12 to 16, amid fears that in younger children it may trigger Reye's Syndrome, a potentially fatal brain disease. So where does that leave us when we want quick relief from a headache or respite from period pains or an aching tooth? Here, we present the case for and against the major painkillers to help you decide whether to reach for a pill or grin and bear it. PARACETAMOL Unlike many similar painkillers, paracetamol can be safely taken with most medication. Professor John Henry, a specialist in toxicity at Imperial College, London, says: 'It is a simple drug so in most cases can be taken alongside other medication without side-effects.' It is an effective painkiller safe enough to be taken during pregnancy. Other pain relievers are not considered suitable for expectant mothers because they may cause potential complications for mother and baby. It is also useful in alleviating the symptoms of viruses. This is because it reduces temperature and relieves aches. Paracetamol is gentle on the stomach and can be taken by those with a mild gastric condition. A junior dose of paracetamol is an effective way to reduce fever in children, and can help alleviate the flulike symptoms youngsters suffer after having vaccinations. While other pain relievers have been linked to health risks to children, paracetamol suspension is safe enough to be given to babies from the age of three months. However, paracetamol can be harmful for heavy drinkers and anyone with a history of liver problems.  Also, some asthmatics who take paracetamol regularly suffer more frequent and severe attacks.  Researchers at Harvard University found that women who take paracetamol regularly double their chance of developing high blood pressure. The team studied 80,000 women who took the drug for 22 days a month and found they were twice as likely to develop hypertension as women who did not use the drug. Paracetamol, while relatively safe in the short term, can be dangerous with prolonged use. It also requires just 20 tablets for an overdose.  IBUPROFEN Ibuprofen both numbs the site of pain and reduces inflammation. It is especially useful for easing the discomfort of post-operative patients, as it reduces swelling in the soft tissues and skin. It is also very good at relieving muscular pain and injuries such as strains, as well as the suffering of arthritics, because of its ability to both reduce the swelling and provide pain relief. Ibuprofen is considered to be the safest of the three main over-thecounter painkillers. Even an overdose of the drug can do little long-term harm. It is available in suspension form and can be used for reducing fever and aches and pains in children from the age of six months. However, it is known to increase blood pressure, and a recent Harvard study highlighted the risk. Researchers found that women who took 22 tablets a month were 86 per cent more likely to develop hypertension than those who did not use the drug. Anyone with high blood pressure should consult their pharmacist for advice on a safer alternative. It is not a suitable painkiller for anyone with heart problems. Some people become nauseous when they use the drug. This is because ibuprofen breaks down into acids in the stomach.

ASPIRIN Aspirin is an excellent stand-by for use as a painkiller because it possesses a double-whammy painnumbing effect. It both numbs the point of pain - such as a cut - and blocks the formation of chemicals, which alert the pain sensor in the brain that an injury has occurred. 'Aspirin is an excellent painkiller because of its combination of central and peripheral effects,' according to Professor Henry. 'Many other over-thecounter painkillers provide one or other but few possess both.'  For many, aspirin provides effective relief from the symptoms of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions such as mild sprains. Aspirin is especially effective against the effects of rheumatoid arthritis, which causes swelling in the fluid-filled sacs that surround the joints. It has fewer side-effects than other arthritis treatments, such as steroids, and is an excellent all-round remedy for flu. But a daily dose of the drug increases the risk of heartburn, internal bleeding and stomach ulcers. It inhibits the production of the hormone prostaglandin, which is vital for the maintenance of the stomach. Aspirin is very toxic for children - just one or two adult-strength tablets are enough to kill a youngster. It has been linked in the under-16s to the risk of developing Reye's syndrome, a rare and potentially fatal disease that attacks the brain and causes liver damage. According to researchers at the University of Hull, aspirin may increase the chance of a fatal heart attack. The team discovered that taking the drug on a regular basis masks minor attacks and strokes that often precede a major one. So instead of seeking treatment, the condition may go unchecked until the sufferer has a major attack. Only those who have previously had a heart attack or stroke should take aspirin on a regular basis. People who have never had a heart attack or a stroke can do more harm than good by swallowing a daily aspirin. While it reduces the risk of blood clots, by thinning the blood, it can make the blood vessels stickier, encouraging platelets to stick to the walls of the vessels, which actually increases the risk of a blood clot. 'A healthy blood vessel is like a non-stick frying pan,' explains Professor John Cleland, a cardiologist from Hull University. 'It is designed to be that way so the blood can slip through easily. Aspirin acts like a scouring pan: it strips the vessel walls of the non-stick surface, making them rough in the process.'

Here Is Why The U.S. Economy Would Continue To Crash Even If All The Lockdowns Were Lifted Immediately…

May 3, 2020 by Michael Snyder

COVID-19 has created an enormous amount of fear, and that fear is doing far more damage to the economy than the actual virus is. In an environment of fear, financial institutions become a lot tighter with their money, and that inevitably causes economic activity to slow down. For example, just consider what happened in 2008. Mortgage lending standards suddenly became much more strict, and that greatly contributed to the horrific housing price crash which left millions upon millions of Americans underwater on their mortgages. Unfortunately, this coronavirus pandemic has created a wave of fear that is far greater than what we experienced during the last recession, and that has enormous implications for the months ahead. Extremely loose lending standards helped create debt-fueled “booms” throughout our economy in recent years, but now lending standards are going in the complete opposite direction very rapidly. For instance, Chase is now requiring a credit score of at least 700 for all new home loans, and they are one of the financial institutions that is now requiring a down payment of at least 20 percent… A Chase spokesperson confirmed that starting April 14, new mortgage applicants will need a minimum credit score of 700 and a down payment of 20%. Refinancing applications for non-Chase mortgages will also need the same score. Chase didn’t disclose its previous lending standards but the average downpayment for first-time home buyers is around 6%, according to a 2018 survey from the National Association of Realtors. If you own your home, would you have been approved for a mortgage under the new Chase standards? And Chase is far from alone. In fact, most major mortgage lenders have now tightened up, and Redfin is estimating that about a quarter of all home buyers last year would not have qualified under the new standards.

So if you remove about a quarter of all buyers from the marketplace moving forward, what happens to the housing market? Yes, there will be an implosion, and it will happen no matter whether coronavirus lockdowns are in effect or not. And home equity loans are going to be hit even harder. As I discussed last week, Wells Fargo is no longer taking HELOC applications at all. So now matter how good your credit is, you simply cannot get a home equity line of credit from Wells Fargo at this point. This is what fear does. We see similar things happening in the credit card industry. Standards have been greatly tightened for new customers, and in some instances existing customers are having their limits slashed or their cards suddenly canceled. The following comes from Newsweek… Analysts warn that credit card companies are lowering credit limits and canceling cards—often without warning—amid the pandemic-induced economic crisis, just as they did during the Great Recession. If you think that this won’t have a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy, then you probably haven’t been paying attention. Our economy is a consumer driven economy, and if consumers don’t have access to easy credit there is no way in the world that economic activity will return to previous levels. Of course even if they did have access to easy credit, many Americans are so afraid of this virus that they have no intention of resuming normal economic patterns any time soon… Here’s hoping you enjoyed the last movie or concert you attended, because if the results of a new survey are accurate, it may be a long, long time before such events are ever popular again. According to the research, 40% of Americans plan to avoid public spaces unless “absolutely necessary” long after the coronavirus pandemic has subsided. The survey, commissioned by Vital Vio, asked 1,000 U.S. adults about how they envision every day life in the wake of the coronavirus. All in all, it looks like there are suddenly a whole lot more germaphobes in the land of the free. Over four in five (82%) said they are now more aware of, and concerned about, cleaning protocols in public areas. Additionally, 58% are more suspicious about their friends’ and family’s hygiene habits. And a lot of companies are also going to be extremely hesitant to “return to normal” because of the threat of lawsuits. Earlier today, I was stunned to learn that 771 coronavirus-related lawsuits have already been filed… Hundreds of lawsuits stemming from the coronavirus pandemic are rapidly amassing in state and federal courts, the first wave of litigation challenging decisions made early during the crisis by corporations, insurance companies and governments. Claims have been filed against hospitals and senior-living facilities, airlines and cruise lines, fitness chains and the entertainment industry – 771 as of Friday, according to a database compiled by Hunton Andrews Kurth, an international law firm tracking cases that emerge from the pandemic. Isn’t that insane? I have repeatedly warned my readers that it will be exceedingly difficult to “return to normal” in our overly litigious society, but even I didn’t expect so many lawsuits so soon.  And this is just the beginning. Eventually there will be thousands upon thousands of coronavirus lawsuits, and they will tie up our courts for the foreseeable future. This pandemic just seems to be magnifying everything that is wrong with our society, and at this point the future looks so bleak that even perpetually optimistic Warren Buffett is throwing in the cards… A 95% plunge in passengers. Billions in losses. A rush for new debt. A recovery that executives expect to take years. Coronavirus is roiling the airline industry and the Oracle of Omaha has seen enough. Warren Buffett told investors Saturday that Berkshire Hathaway has sold its entire stakes in the four largest U.S. airlines — American, Delta, Southwest, United — as the pandemic upends another bet on the sector that the famed investor had shunned for years before a surprise return in 2016. Buffett understands that fear of this virus is going to paralyze air travel for a very long time to come, and he is getting out while he still can. But if our society cannot even handle COVID-19, what will things look like once much worse things start happening? It has been sobering to watch how rapidly our “snowflake society” has melted during this pandemic. Now virtually the entire nation is paralyzed by fear, and the once great U.S. economy is crashing all around us. And the really bad news is that this is just the beginning…

Are we Heading to This Again? Starvation and Cannibalism During Man-Made Famine in 1920s Russia

By Strange Sounds - May 4, 2020

Standing solemnly in their thick winter coats behind a table laden with children’s body parts. This is the grave photo of a couple that shows how starving people turned to cannibalism to survive during a man-made famine in 1920s Russia. More than five million people died during the catastrophe, which began in 1921 and lasted through 1922. Russian communist revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known as Lenin, had been in charge of the country since 1917. In a chilling disregard for the suffering of his fellow countrymen he instructed food to be seized from the poor. Lenin’s Bolsheviks party believed peasants were actively trying to undermine the war effort and by taking their food away it reduced their strength. The famine was able to take root with ease due to the economic problems caused by World War I, five years of civil war, and a drought in 1921 which led to 30 million Russians becoming malnourished. As Lenin declared ‘let the peasants starve,’ the result was to force them to resort to trading human flesh on the black market. Russian academics have previously researched and catalogued examples of cannibalism and corpse eating and in one account described how a woman refused to give over her husband’s dead body because she was using it for meat. The starving peasants were even seen digging up recently buried corpses to retrieve their flesh, as well as eating grass and animals that were previously considered pets. The police took no action as cannabalism was considered a legitimate method of survival. Eventually aid workers from America and Europe arrived and in 1921 one wrote a stomach churning account of what they’d seen. ‘Families were killing and devouring fathers, grandfathers and children. ‘Ghastly rumours about sausages prepared with human corpses though officially contradicted, were common. ‘In the market, among rough huckstresses swearing at each other, one heard threats to make sausages of a person.’ Other disturbing images from the famine show children suffering with severe malnutrition, their stomachs bloated and almost every bone in their body visible. One of the worst hit places was the city of Samara, situated in the southeastern part of European Russia at the confluence of the Volga and Samara Rivers. Aid from outside Russia was initially rejected by Lenin because he saw it as other countries interfering. Polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen came to the city in 1921 and was horrified by what he saw – almost the entire city was dying from hunger. He raised 40 billion Swiss francs and established up to 900 places where people could get food. Lenin was eventually convinced to let international aid agencies in and Nansen was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. The American American Relief Administration, who were told they could not help in 1919, were granted access to the sick and starving in 1921 and provided great relief along with European aid agencies such as Save The Children.  Lenin died shortly after the famine, in 1924, and was replaced by Joseph Stalin who became the leader of the Soviet Union. Will a famine follow the man-made pandemic? Meat, egg, milk and vegetable prices are soaring. Read more signs of the times on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [DM]

Nolte: They Told Us Lockdowns Were About Flattening the Curve. They Lied.

In order to flatten the curve of the coronavirus, the politicians told us we must lockdown and be quarantined while our economy collapsed. They told us we had to flatten the curve to ensure our health care system was not overwhelmed by the sick and dying. They told us that if the health care system was overwhelmed, people would die who could otherwise be saved. They told us losing people who can be saved is intolerable, and America agreed… And so, for the first time in recorded history, healthy Americans dutifully fulfilled our end of the bargain and went into quarantine by dutifully agreeing to go into lockdown while our economy collapsed. And now we know we were suckers…

Now we know the politicians lied to us. This was never about saving the healthcare system from crashing, because we have saved the system from crashing, and most of us are still in these goddamned lockdowns. They lied. Not all the politicians lied. But most of the politicians lied, most especially Democrat governors…. My Democrat governor, Roy Cooper, just canceled school for the rest of the year and extended our ludicrous, pointless, statewide, one-size-fits-all lockdown to May 8.

Why? There’s no good answer. Among others, all of California, Michigan, Hawaii, and Wisconsin are locked down through the end of May. Oregon is locked down until July 6! Why? There’s no good answer.

There is no threat the healthcare system’s going to crash in any of those states. You might be able to convince me there’s a small risk in some urban areas — in Detroit or Los Angeles or Milwaukee, but 95 percent of those states are completely out of the woods. But these Democrat governors refuse to open any part of their state. My North Carolina county is completely out of the woods… We had nine cases here and no deaths. Nine cases. Zero deaths. We’re still locked down, even though there’s a full-blown medical center in my county. In my five county area we’ve had fewer than 100 cases and one death. Each of those counties has a hospital. There is no chance these health systems will crash. None. So why are we still locked down? Even in our most densely populated area, Charlotte, there have been only 1651 cases and 49 deaths. The curve here in North Carolina, and the curve in 95 percent of the country is not just bent, it’s crushed, decimated, destroyed — and let’s now take this opportunity to go ahead and say the following out loud: in much of the country there was never any real danger of overwhelming the health care system. The experts were wrong. But that’s okay. It happens. We planned for the worst and the worst didn’t happen… That’s a good thing. But why in the name of God’s creation are lockdowns being extended where there is no risk of the system being overwhelmed?

You told us we had to ravage our economy in order to bend the curve. Okay, the curve is bent; can we go now? No, because now you’re moving the goalposts. Now you’re spreading an all new pile of bullshit with this bullshit about saving lives and it still not being safe to go out. Well, riddle me this Govs. Newsom, Cooper, Whitmer, and Evers… When there is zero risk the health care system will crash, and when there is no vaccine or cure, why is it safer to reopen in two or three weeks or a month or three months, as opposed to right now? With no vaccine or cure, what’s going to change to make things safer between today and May 8 or May 31 or July 6? Don’t tell me we’re waiting for warmer weather. First off, no one has said that’s why the lockdowns have been extended. Secondly, Dr. Fauci has already said “You must assume that the virus will continue to do its thing” when the weather gets warm — and I believe him. Besides, we’re also being told the virus could roar back in the fall, which should only add to the urgency to free us today. Before we might have to hole up again, let us get back to normal for as long as possible, let us make as much money as possible. Whether you reopen your state on May 1 or May 31 or July 6, this incurable disease will still be out there waiting… Which means it will be just as risky to reopen on May 31 as it is today — so why wait? What is the benefit of waiting when waiting doesn’t make it any safer? What had been a national effort to save lives, a noble effort of national unity, has been twisted by Democrat governors into something unnecessarily punitive that reeks of a partisan power play to destroy President Trump’s re-election chances. Give me a better explanation. Because this is the bottom line… Unless you’re willing to wait for a cure (that is at least a year away or might never come at all), when there is no risk the health care system’s going to crash, what is the point of waiting one more day to open up the country when waiting doesn’t make us any safer?

This is madness. You lied to us. You’re all liars.

P.S. To those Americans who believe the lockdowns should continue — feel free to continue your quarantine. No one’s talking about forcing anyone to leave quarantine. No one’s going to force you to go to the beach or the mall. Stay home. Follow John Nolte on Twitter @NolteNC. Follow his Facebook Page here.

Leaked Intel Dossier Exposes China's Plot to Deceive the World on Coronavirus 'Five Eyes' intelligence alliance research reveals China hid or destroyed evidence

China has been actively engaging in a cover-up of the origins of the coronavirus by hiding and destroying evidence, according to a bombshell leaked intelligence dossier. The research dossier was compiled by the so-called "Five Eyes" intelligence alliance states - which comprises of the intel agencies of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The intelligence research reveals that China intentionally hid or destroyed evidence of the coronavirus outbreak, triggering a global pandemic and leading to the loss of tens of thousands of lives around the world. The leaked 15-page intel document was obtained by Australia's Saturday Telegraph newspaper and establishes that China's cover-up amounts to an "assault on international transparency." The dossier echoes themes reported in the media about the outbreak of the virus. Reports about China's initial denial that the virus could be transmitted between humans, and refusal to provide live samples to international scientists working on a vaccine, the silencing or "disappearing" of doctors who tried to speak up, and the destruction of evidence in laboratories, are all supported by the intelligence document. Specifically, the file notes that China began censoring news of the virus on search engines and social media beginning Dec. 31, deleting terms including “SARS variation," “Wuhan Seafood market” and “Wuhan Unknown Pneumonia.” Three days later, on Jan. 3, China’s National Health Commission ordered virus samples to be either moved to designated testing facilities or destroyed, while simultaneously issuing a "no-publication order" related to the disease. TRENDING: Joe Biden Has Brain Freeze Forgets Word for Coronavirus WATCH The Saturday Telegraph report includes a timeline of Chinese obfuscation. On Jan. 5, for example, Wuhan's Municipal Health Commission stopped releasing daily updates on the number of new cases and would not resume them for 13 days. On Jan. 10, Wang Guanga, a respiratory specialist at Peking University First Hospital who had been investigating the outbreak, said it was "under control" and largely a "mild condition." (Wang himself would disclose 12 days later that he had been infected with the virus.) Two days later, on Jan. 12, a Shanghai professor's lab was closed down after it shared data on the virus's genetic sequence with the outside world. On Jan. 24, Chinese officials stopped the Wuhan Institute of Virology from sharing virus samples with a lab at the University of Texas. Perhaps most damningly, the dossier states that Chinese authorities denied that the virus could be spread between humans until Jan. 20, "despite evidence of human-human transmission from early December." The file is similarly unsparing about the World Health Organization (WHO), stating that it toed the Chinese line about human-to-human transmission despite the fact that "officials in Taiwan raised concerns as early as December 31, as did experts in Hong Kong on January 4.” As of Saturday, the WHO's official Twitter account still features a tweet from Jan. 14 that stated: "Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have 14 that stated: "Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China." The dossier goes on to state that throughout February, "Beijing [pressed] the US [sic], Italy, India, Australia, Southeast Asian neighbours [sic] and others not to protect themselves via travel restrictions, even as [China] impose[d] severe restrictions at home." At the same time, the file states: "Millions of people [left] Wuhan after the outbreak and before Beijing lock[ed] down the city on January 23." The dossier continues with a litany of Chinese defensiveness, stating: “As EU [European Union] diplomats prepare a report on the pandemic, [China] successfully presses Brussels to strike language on [China] disinformation." Similarly, “As Australia calls for an independent inquiry into the pandemic, [China] threatens to cut off trade with Australia. [China] has likewise responded furiously to US [sic] calls for transparency.” The Saturday Telegraph report does present one apparent point of divergence between the allied governments, with Australia believing the coronavirus most likely originated in the Wuhan wet market and putting the chances it accidentally leaked from a lab at "5 percent." By contrast, Fox News reported April 15 that U.S. intelligence officials are increasingly confident that coronavirus likely originated in a Wuhan lab as a consequence of China's attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States President Trump said Thursday that he's seen evidence suggesting the virus came from a lab after reporters asked if he knew of anything that gave him confidence that the outbreak originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. "Yes, I have," he replied, "And, I think that the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves because they’re like the public relations agency for China." Multiple sources previously told Fox News that it is believed standards in Wuhan were disregarded before the virus leaked, prompting Beijing to initiate a cover-up. Sources also claimed the WHO was complicit from the beginning in helping China cover its tracks. The WHO and China have denied any wrongdoing. The Saturday Telegraph also reported that key figures at the Wuhan Institute of Virology previously worked or trained in Australian government labs where they conducted research on pathogens in live bats as part of an ongoing partnership with the Chinese Academy of Sciences. According to the dossier, the team's work at the Wuhan lab involved discovering samples of coronavirus within a cave in Yunnan province and synthesizing a bat-derived coronavirus that could not be cured.

Massachusetts Walmart store sees more than 80 employees test positive for coronavirus

Danielle Wallace

By Danielle Wallace | Fox News

At least 81 employees inside a single Walmart store in Massachusetts have tested positive for the coronavirus, officials said. The Walmart Supercenter in Worcester, about 50 miles west of Boston, was closed on Wednesday to undergo a deep cleaning after 23 employees had received positive test results. The first case was confirmed on April 8. By Sunday, 58 additional employees had tested positive, meaning a total of 81 employees at that store had become infected with the novel virus, Worcester City Manager Edward Augustus said. "Our inspectional services department will inspect the facility to make sure that the cleaning was done in compliance with our guidelines," the city manager told WYCN-LD. A total of 391 employees had undergone testing conducted by UMass Memorial Health Care on Thursday and Friday. Walmart spokesman, Charles Crowson, told Fox News that those numbers included staff who work inside the same building, including both Walmart employees as well as workers employed by independent vendors. A city inspection conducted Tuesday revealed employees were not wearing face masks, violating a recent city order requiring all essential workers to wear personal protective gear, the Worcester Business Journal reported.

Crowson, a senior manager for corporate communications at Walmart, said the company has required all staff to wear face masks while on the job since April 20. He told the Journal the company has implemented other safety precautions, including testing workers' temperatures at the start of each shift and reducing store hours to allow more time for cleaning. Aisles have been arranged to permit only one-way traffic, and plastic barriers have been set up to separate checkout aisles, he added.

BOSTON GROCERY STORE WORKERS STAND 6 FEET APART TO PROTEST LACK OF MASKS, WAGES AMID CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

Advocates argue that both the city and company have not done enough to safeguard the health of essential workers during the pandemic, WYCN-LD reported. "They're already vulnerable. They have to go out there and make money, they can't afford to say, 'No, I got to take the day off, now is really not time.' They need food, they need to keep a roof over their heads," said Joanne Suarez, a community health advocate at The Family Van, a mobile clinic providing free medical screenings in underserved Boston neighborhoods. Coinciding with International Workers' Day, some grocery workers in Massachusetts were expected to participate in a national “sickout” Friday, calling out of work to demand more pay and safer working conditions amid the pandemic. The national protest involved employees at Target, Whole Foods, Amazon, Instacart, FedEx and Walmart, but it was unclear how many in the greater Boston area participated. Last month, dozens of workers employed by Stop & Shop, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Shaw's food stores stood six feet apart in Boston’s South End claiming they were being forced to work during the coronavirus health crisis without adequate PPE.

In the hours following the protest, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh posted a video message on Twitter thanking grocery store employees for providing a critical service to the public amid the coronavirus crisis.

If Americans Are to Survive, They Must Be Willing to Adopt "Rules for Radicals" Strategies

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, May 3, 2020 - 16:58.

On Monday, the CSS will be releasing a detailed report of the “open your business” event in Wickenburg, Arizona. I interviewed business owners and average citizens in an estimated crowd of 400-500 people in a town of 7,000 people. Preliminarily, I have a couple of observations that jump to the forefront of extreme discontent in America that I found exemplified in Wickenburg, AZ. First, the mainstream media propaganda machine has lost its influence over many/most Americans. The message has been so repetitious for so long, that is habituating with the public. I heard many sarcastic comments that mimics the MSM’s attempts to control attitudes. To a person, every Wickenburg citizen I spoke with mocked the COVID-19 reported rates. The mocked the use of the term “essential business”. Most of all, they no longer fear law enforcement and government officials. These people hold the establishment in extreme disdain. I am finding these views are reflective for most of the country.  The Liberals Are Alienating Their Own Rightly so, it is appropriately noted that President Trump is alienating his own base. He has allowed a “lab coat coup” to take over the government and the secret puppeteer is Bill Gates who wants America locked down until such time as his mandatory and dangerous vaccine is ready. What the liberal machine did not account for was the fact that they would greatly alienate their own base. The fastest growing demographic on the CSS are previously die-hard liberals who are now alienated and very angry. Here is a typical communication that I am receiving from this demographic. Dear Mr. Hodges

I hate you, at least I did for a long time. I always wondered how a well-educated person such as yourself could possess such Neanderthal views. I thought that if your kind took over the planet you hold people like me as sex slaves as you emptied my bank account forced most of us to perform slave labor.

I will give you credit for two things. You are very consistent in what you have been saying for a long time. It now appears that you were at least correct on a few things. Most of all, you are correct about this shut down of our country. We would be considerably better off if we just faced this virus head on. We are never going to achieve herd immunity by being locked in our homes. You also pointed out that we are compromising our immune system by staying sheltered-in-place. Death is a part of life, we need to go back to work and deal with the consequences. What good is it for us to survive and have nothing to return to? We can later debate the deep political differences that we hold. For now, Mr. Hodges, we need to unite and force our government to open our schools, Universities, and places of business. I commend you for your stand on these issues. Please do not print my last name because I am tenured professor at a large university in the Midwest and I would anticipate serious consequences for my shift in allegiances.

I have some ideas of what we need to do. Please contact me at the following--- Thank you, Xxxx xxxxx

The above email is typical of what I am receiving from large numbers of liberals. They feel betrayed. Many have not received the funds promised by the government. Many more have nothing left to pay bills for shelter and food. Subsequently, we conservatives need to adopt these liberals and use them for the skills they already possess. There is nobody better prepared to bring intense heat to an individual or group because they are society’s guerilla fighters. In other words, we need to open the gates of hell and invoke, legal, yet the most annoying forms of protest known to man.

Imprisoned Conservatives Must Embrace "Rules for Radicals" If America is going to break free of this bondage, we need to be willing to be rude, somewhat obnoxious, and very annoying yet, not to violate the law. There are some “Rules for Radicals” that Americans need to immediately employ if we are going to have a chance to save our country. This change in tactics should be somewhat easy to do because many of the liberals now joining our ranks over the shutdown, are well-versed in these tactics which have previously abhorred well-behaved conservatives. However, one cannot win if they bring a knife to a gun fight. If we are going to reclaim control over our country, we must be willing to go the next level of protest if necessary. The principles I will advocate below, are designed to harass, and intimidate as well change public opinion. Many times, the following will be all that is necessary to bring about change. However, all change groups must be willing to go to the next level, not covered here. For example, extreme civil disobedience as well as becoming more inflammatory on the fields of protests might be needed. Here is the best of Saul Alinsky’s principles adapted to use for our time and situation.

Alinsky’s Rule #4: “Make the enemy live up to their book of rules”.

Please allow me to use Arizona as an example for the use of this strategy. Arizona Governor Ducey is on the Board of Directors for T GEN who is a partner for the development of vaccines, so T GEN, Bill Gates and Doug Ducey will benefit if the lockdown can be extended to the completion of the soon-to-be mandatory vaccination. If Arizonans, for that matter Americas, want to leave their homes, they will have to get vaccinated. Ducey, Bill Gates and T Gen wins and we lose when the lockdown is extended.  Further, Ducey is allowing the box stores to operate with impunity and when they violate social distancing rules, nothing happens. Meanwhile, competing small businesses are put out of business by government edict. I have repeated this mantra dozens of times. This conflicted governor has also said that when smaller retail is open they will offer services at the sidewalk. We are already experiencing 100+ degree days in Phoenix. This is not even practical. Nobody is going to shop in these places. Here is the hypocrisy, the box stores will not have the same restrictions. My advice is to mention the hypocrisy at every turn in every gathering, every event and in every press release. This is just a small example of how we are using this principle in Arizona. These constant references to Ducey’s conflicts of interest and hypocrisy are relentless. Protesters in other parts of the country can follow our lead across the country. This practice takes away the statutory legitimacy of the governor. The people are quickly losing respect for the governor and soon widespread civil disobedience will be widespread.

Alinsky’s Rule #5: Relentless Ridicule is the most potent weapon according to the developer of the Rules for Radicals. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. It infuriates the opposition. Back to my Arizona example again. I write one major article and make 10 podcasts per day and engage in 8 hours of broadcasting per week. In at least 50% of what I do, I mention Governor Doug Ducey. Remember, the old Nazi saying about repeating a lie often enough the people will come to believe it. The same principle, called the confirmation bias, works the same way for the truth. Most people don’t do podcasts, write articles or a have a radio show. However, the average, non-media person can write a daily paragraph to the legislators, call representatives and leave messages, and attend as many protests as possible. These people provide the sound of marching feet that every protest, or counter-protest movement needs to spread the intimidation. The ridicule must be relentless and drown out all counter-statements by your target. Shout them down at the press conferences. And this leads to a very important protest component, it must get personal, very personal and it must ultimately cost the target something. Protests should start out at governmental offices that are impacted. However, that does not make the protest personal. Subsequently, it must get very personal and be relentless. In Arizona, the protests, like the protesters in Michigan, must move to the Governor’s home. From 6AM to 10PM, from the sidewalk in front the home, the protests must be relentless. Further, some should be designated to drive cars around the home in a steady stream of honking. If the target, or spouse, has a business, even better. This brings the effect of business disruption to a very personal level. Leaflets, that describe the tyrannical behavior should be passed out. When there is a personal financial cost, policies get changed. There is another strategy that should be immediately employed. Thousands of class action lawsuits should be filed as soon as possible. The goal is to overwhelm a local or state officials with legal fees as well as to eat up their time. Additionally, people by the millions must be willing to take to the streets every day. The law enforcement minions that think it is OK to ruin the lives of small business owners and their employees, while enforcing unconstitutional regulations, must be overwhelmed in the streets that they have to call in the National Guard to disperse the crowds. And no, I am not advocating for violence. However, large crowds evoke fear in political bullies. Conclusion

It is my considered belief that this is what is necessary to make people like Doug Ducey back down. It will soon be working in Michigan as Governor Dimwit is about ready to cry uncle. Please note that the Michigan governor has been undermined by her legislature. When the rank and file send out daily messages to these people and threaten their incumbency, things can quickly change. Some very nice conservatives will say, “I could never be that rude”. That is certainly OK. But let’s make sure that if this is you, that you fully understand what it is you are really saying. By refusing to fight back, you are saying that you don’t care if your rights survive, you don’t care if your children will have a roof over their heads, or have enough to eat, or a have a country worth living in. America, you have been punched in the nose. Are you will to punch back? If not, put on your hazmat suit and cower in the corner and get out of our way.

Pastors Henry, Alex Seeley say quarantining at home is revealing foundation marriage was built on

By Jeannie Law, Christian Post Reporter

Henry and Alex Seeley, who founded The Belonging Co church in Nashville, say the lockdown has affected each of them differently, and offered advice on how to work through challenges and any unresolved tensions that have been brought to the fore during the quarantine. The couple moved to Tennessee from Australia in 2012 and began leading their congregation six years ago after starting off as worship leaders. Now their worship team consists of some of the biggest names in worship music today. During the state lockdown in response to the coronavirus, the couple have had to navigate leading services online and hosting small groups with their church members. Henry and Alex Seeley shared with The Christian Post how they've been keeping their marriage strong during the quarantine and offered practical advice for couples whose marriages are struggling in this season. The interview has been lightly edited for clarity. Christian Post: Stay-at-home orders can be challenging for couples who are trying not to take their frustrations out on each other. How have you been able to navigate married life in this season? Henry: We just celebrated 22 years married. I think the further into marriage you get, the more you just realize the sacrificial element to marriage. I think that really is the essence of it. The further you get into marriage, the only way your marriage can not just survive but actually thrive and flourish, is when you are constantly from that heart posture of serving each other and not looking at what are my needs right now, but how can I serve? Obviously with that, when there's an equal balance of that, everybody's needs get met along the way; you do it with a different expectation. For Alex and I coming into this season, we've kind of worked from home. The last five or six years, we haven't even had an office where our church offices are right now because our team has outgrown the space and so we work from home quite a bit, anyway. Before that, I've always had a studio from home, so I'm kind of used to being at home a lot. So I think we've really worked out and just got used to that kind of flow anyway in life. I think during this season, thankfully it hasn't really affected us in a negative sense too much. I'm a bit of an introvert, so being at home for a month straight, that's no big deal. Alex has had some hard days where it's like, "I just need people, I need more people than just my immediate family." Alex: I haven't been frustrated at my husband or the kids. I've been frustrated, but I've had a husband who's been sensitive to understand "My wife needs people; my wife, she's highs and lows." So because we've had a strong foundation in building who we are as a couple, this actually hasn't disrupted our normal. When there has been a moment, I've been pre-warning people so that people don't take it personal. I think what it's (quarantine) been doing, it's been revealing the foundation of what marriage was built on. It's a real great indicator to see whether it was built on true relationship and conflict resolution and honoring, serving one another or whether the business of life masked a lot of our issues. I think it's a really important time for family and marriages to get it right. I thank God that honestly, I think we've had one fight, it was more of a meltdown, in the 42 days that we've been locked down.

CP: What advice do you have for couples in crisis on what to do to reestablish that foundation the proper way?

Henry: Don't ignore it. As crazy as this season is right now, I think it's the kindness of God on a lot of levels. Obviously, the illness has not come from God, this is not God's doing. Even the shutdown is not God's doing, but God will use any situation He can to get our attention. I think it's so important, and we've encouraged people to do this, in every space in their life, use this time to assess — while you've got some time right now — where are the weaknesses? What are the weak areas? Where have I just ignored things because I've been so busy just working or pretending that everything's OK, both as an individual and if they're married, relationship. So I think don't ignore what's going on. Also, don't allow the heightened sense of this close proximity to negatively affect the future but use it to say, "Alright, where are we? Where do we have tension points right now? Let's not argue about them. Let's sit down and work through them. Let's invite the Holy Spirit to help us in the center of our marriage to deal with this stuff." Because God knew if you're a couple that's married before the Lord, God's in covenant with you. So there's no reason for it to not work. It just means that you've got to get in and do a bit of work, especially in a moment like this. I think as Alex said, so often we're so busy with other things with life, with work, with all these other distractions that you can go 10 or even 20 years without ever really dealing with some of these things that need to be dealt with. Use this time to just kind of get in that place with the Holy Spirit and ask Him to help in those areas.

Alex: I would just say, look inward rather than outward. Don't look at your spouse's issues. Look at your issues and ask, "What am I reacting to? Why am I getting offended? Why am I getting frustrated?" Write it down and then in a calm, cool, collected way, not in the heat of the moment, sit down and say, "I think these are areas that we need to work on and first admit fault. Be the first to say sorry, and be the first to go, "Hey, this is my issue but I think together we need to deal with it."

Ask the Holy Spirit to help you with displaying the fruits of the Spirit. I think the nine fruits of the Spirit are really important in this season of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control is really important. I think honestly, we can come out of this a lot stronger and a lot more like Christ.

Henry: I think oftentimes, it's easy to forget that you're on the same team. I think a lot of couples kind of fight from their own side of the playing field in marriage. One of the things I'm thankful that we were taught, even before we got married, is you're on the same team. You're not on opposing sides.

From day one of our marriage, we haven't always lived that out perfectly by any means but we've always come back to that place of, "Hang on, we're on the same team, why are we fighting against each other? We should be fighting for each other and for this marriage, so let's get on the same page here."

Honestly, it's been one of the keys to our marriage. I think it's been one of the keys to us raising our kids. Again, we haven't done a perfect job of raising our kids, but we've raised our kids really well, in general, and our family's peaceful for the most part because there's never been two sides. And the kids haven't had the option to go to dad if they don't get the response from mom that they want. We're always on the same side. So I think that's just a really huge part of marriage, just realizing that.

DHS report accuses China of intentionally downplaying coronavirus threat: AP

By Justine Coleman - 05/03/20 05:35 PM EDT

A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intelligence report dated last week accuses China of intentionally downplaying the threat of the coronavirus to stock up on medical supplies, The Associated Press reported. Chinese governmental leaders “intentionally concealed the severity” of the coronavirus from other countries in early January, according to the DHS report obtained by the AP.  The report details that China increased its imports and reduced its exports of medical supplies, adding there was a 95 percent probability the trade behavior was not within a normal range. Analysis showed the country attempted to cover up the changes in trade by “denying there were export restrictions and obfuscating and delaying provision of its trade data,” according to the AP. China also refrained from telling the World Health Organization that the virus “was a contagion” for most of January to gather an increase of supplies like face masks, surgical gowns and gloves from overseas. The report is released as the Trump administration has increased their blame of China for the pandemic. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday that the nation “did all that it could to make sure the world didn’t learn in a timely fashion” about coronavirus. President Trump has theorized that the virus could have been let loose because of a “mistake.” Some have speculated that the virus originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, which the U.S. intelligence agencies have said they are investigating. But opponents of the president have said the administration is pointing the finger to China to distract from domestic mistakes it had made when responding to the pandemic early on. Worldwide, the coronavirus has infected a confirmed 3.49 million people, killing at least 246,475, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The Hill has reached out to DHS for comment.

Transgender Man Who Gave Birth Can't Be Listed as Father, Court Rules

Michael Foust | ChristianHeadlines.com Contributor | Friday, May 1, 2020

A biological woman who identifies as a transgender man and gave birth to a child lost an appeal Wednesday to be listed as the father on the birth certificate. Freddy McConnell was born female and had a mastectomy as an adult but became pregnant via sperm donation. The baby was born in 2018.  McConnell wanted to be listed as the child’s father on the birth certificate but was told by the registrar that British law would not permit it. McConnell then filed suit. A lower court ruled against McConnell last year. This week, the Court of Appeal also ruled against the transgender man. “In our view, it is not possible simply to say that Parliament has ‘de-coupled’ the concept of ‘mother’ from gender,” the three-judge panel unanimously ruled. The word “mother,” the court said, has special significance in British law. The justices pointed to the Children Act of 1989, which it said benefits the child by requiring a mother to be listed. “[The Act] provides that a mother has automatic parental responsibility for a child from the moment of birth,” the justices ruled. “No-one else has that automatic parental responsibility, including the father. … The fact of giving birth to a child has that effect as a matter of operation of law. It can readily be understood why this could be important in practice. “From the moment of birth someone must have parental responsibility for a newly born child, for example, to authorise medical treatment and more generally to become responsible for its care.” Last year, Judge Andrew McFarlane of the High Court of Justice ruled against McConnell and agreed with the current law. “There is a material difference between a person’s gender and their status as a parent,” McFarlane wrote. “Being a ‘mother’, whilst hitherto always associated with being female, is the status afforded to a person who undergoes the physical and biological process of carrying a pregnancy and giving birth. “It is now medically and legally possible for an individual, whose gender is recognised in law as male, to become pregnant and give birth to their child,” McFarlane added. “Whilst that person’s gender is ‘male’, their parental status, which derives from their biological role in giving birth, is that of ‘mother’.” McConnell said another appeal is possible.

Venezuela says eight killed in foiled 'invasion by sea'

Interior Minister Nestor Reverol says 'mercenary terrorists' launched attack from Colombia.

22 hours ago

Venezuela's government has said it foiled a marine incursion by "terrorist mercenaries" who attempted to enter the country on speedboats from neighbouring Colombia, adding security forces killed eight of the fighters. The group landed early on Sunday on a beach in the port city of La Guaira, about 20 miles (32km) from the capital Caracas, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said in a televised address. "They tried to carry out an invasion by sea, a group of terrorist mercenaries from Colombia, in order to commit terrorist acts in the country, murdering leaders of the revolutionary government," he said. Socialist Party leader Diosdado Cabello said eight people were killed and two were detained.  "We have deactivated an attempted incursion of our territory, thanks to intelligence efforts," Cabello told reporters. President Nicolas Maduro frequently accuses political adversaries of attempting to overthrow his administration with the support of the United States, which has promised to force him from office through sanctions that have crippled the OPEC nations' oil exports. Critics of the governing Socialist Party often dismiss such accusations as stunts used as an excuse to detain opponents of the government. Maduro has overseen a six-year economic crisis that has left many citizens unable to obtain basic food and medicine and forced nearly five million people to emigrate. Tough sanctions  The US and more than 50 other countries disavowed Maduro after his disputed 2018 election, which they say was rigged, and instead have recognised opposition leader Juan Guaido as the nation's legitimate interim leader. But Maduro retains the backing of the country's armed forces as well as countries including China and Russia, which have harshly criticised the US sanctions. The US has led a campaign to remove Maduro, increasing pressure in recent weeks by indicting the socialist leader as a drug trafficker and offering a $15m reward for his arrest. The US has also increased sanctions, cutting off Venezuela's oil sector to choke Maduro from a key source of hard cash. In addition to that pressure, Maduro's government has faced several small-scale military threats, including an attempt to assassinate Maduro with a drone and Guaido's call for a military uprising, which was joined by few soldiers. Maduro and his allies say the Trump administration is determined to end Venezuela's socialist government to exploit the South American nation's vast underground oil reserves.

North Korea's Kim did not have surgery, South says, as shots fired at DMZ

Sunday, 03 May 2020 11:03 AM MYT By Cynthia Kim and Hyonhee Shin

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un did not undergo surgery during almost three weeks of absence from public life, a South Korean official said on Sunday, as the two Koreas exchanged gunfire at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separating the two sides. The government official declined to provide reasons, but said speculative reports that Kim had had an operation, citing some differences in his leg movements, were untrue. "Our assessment is that (Kim) did not undergo surgery," the official, who declined to be identified, told reporters. Asked if media reports of Kim having undergone a simple medical treatment were also untrue, the official simply said: "Yes." North and South Korea exchanged gunfire around a rural guard post, raising tension a day after North Korean state media showed Kim visiting a factory, the first report of him making a public appearance since April 11. Multiple gunshots were fired from North Korea towards a guard post in South Korea, the South's Joint Chiefs of Staffs (JCS) said in a statement. South Korea responded by firing two shots towards North Korea, the JCS said. No casualties were reported. After weeks of intense speculation about Kim's health and whereabouts, which included one report he had undergone cardiovascular surgery, North Korea's official media published photographs and a report on Saturday that Kim had attended the completion of a fertiliser plant. Kim was seen in photographs smiling and talking to aides at the ribbon-cutting ceremony and touring the plant. State TV footage showed Kim’s leg movements appearing stiff and jerky. The authenticity of the photos, published on the website of the official Rodong Sinmun newspaper, could not be verified. Reclusive North Korea for years pursued nuclear and missile programmes in defiance of U.N. Security Council sanctions. Talks between North Korea and the United States, highlighted by three meetings between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump, are at a standstill.  The exchange of gunshots on Sunday was the latest confrontation between the rival Koreas that technically remain still at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a treaty. In a lengthy briefing held later on Sunday, an official at South Korea's JCS said the gunshots did not seem a planned provocation. The U.S.-led U.N. Command, which oversees affairs in the heavily fortified DMZ, said it was working with the JCS to assess the situation. "The UNC will conduct a thorough investigation tomorrow to determine if there was an Armistice Agreement violation, and will provide the report to the appropriate authorities once completed.” Choi Kang, vice president of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, said he believed the timing of the provocation shows it could have been planned to show that Kim was still in charge of the North Korean military. "Yesterday, Kim was trying to show he is perfectly healthy, and today, Kim is trying to mute all kinds of speculation that he may not have full control over the military,” Choi said. "Rather than going all the way by firing missiles and supervising a missile launch, Kim could be reminding us, 'yes I’m healthy and I’m still in power'.” Ewha University international affairs professor Leif-Eric Easley in Seoul said the shooting could be aimed at boosting morale in the North Korean military.

Chilling video of mass coronavirus grave in Iran sparks higher death toll fears

The cemetery has reportedly built 10,000 new graves for coronavirus victims, despite official figures saying only 5,806 people have died from the killer disease from across the country

By Tiffany Lo 11:48, 28 APR 2020

Footage taken at Tehran's Behesht-e Zahra cemetery shows rows of empty chambers under the ground, which appear to be the new section built for coronavirus victims. As the camera pans, grieving families can be seen paying tributes to the loved ones who passed away. One man is seen standing on the empty plots as he looks out to the chilling horizon. The Behesht-e Zahra cemetery is Iran's largest graveyard which can house up to 1.6 million bodies. Mojtaba Yazdani, Tehran’s deputy mayor told the state news agency, IRNA, that the additional 10,000 graves were built in new dimensions for coronavirus victims. But there have only been 5,806 confirmed deaths across the whole of the country, with a further 91,000 infected. Iranian opposition activists – who have cited local sources – fear the death toll may be up to 10 times higher than the official figures. And the World Health Organisation has previously said Iran’s death toll could be five times higher given their methods of testing. Dr Rick Brennan, Director of Emergency Operations in the WHO said: “The number of cases reported could represent only about a fifth of the real numbers. “The reason was that testing, as is the case even in some wealthy European countries, was restricted to severe cases.” Iran's parliament research centre said the official total only counted those who died in hospital and who tested positive for the virus before they died – meaning the true toll is likely higher. In March, a man filmed lines of body bags left piling up on the floor in an Iranian hospital in the city of Qom where coronavirus, officially named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization, was first detected. Iraj Harirchi, Deputy Minister of Health, told Aftab-Yazd state daily that the coronavirus death rate "is higher among the poor". He explained: "They have less access to health care and medical services.

"Coronavirus’s impact on the economy will affect the poor much more. Those who are at risk of losing their jobs and those who work part-time will suffer more."

Yellowstone’s iconic hotels likely to stay closed when park opens

By Michael Wright Chronicle Staff Writer Apr 27, 2020

The iconic hotels inside Yellowstone National Park are likely to stay closed if the park reopens.  Xanterra Travel Collection announced it would begin offering limited lodging and other services in Yellowstone on June 15, assuming the park is open to visitors by then, but famous locations like the Old Faithful Inn and Lake Hotel are going to remain closed. At first, the options will be limited to campgrounds and the company’s cabin-style offerings with private bathrooms, according to a Xanterra news release. Dining options will be limited to “grab-and-go” options. Rick Hoeninghausen, a spokesman for Xanterra, said more services could be offered later in the season depending on the recommendations of public health experts, but a limited opening was the plan for now. He added that the company decided to open only the cabins because each has a private bathroom and could be more easily isolated and closed off if a guest has the virus. “Under today’s rules, that’s the room type we can open with and feel good about,” he said. Yellowstone has been closed to visitors since March 24. A park spokeswoman said no date has been set for reopening. Xanterra runs the lodging inside the park. Many of its hotels would have been closed to visitors this time of year anyway, with the Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel typically being the first to open on May 1. This delay pushes the limited opening a month-and-a-half beyond that. The cabins that are expected to open will be those at Old Faithful, Canyon Village, Lake Village and Mammoth Hot Springs.  Hoeninghausen added that the opening will be staggered, with the Old Faithful and Mammoth areas opening on June 15, Lake Village on June 17 and Canyon on June 19. He added that the company is working with customers who booked stays for this year to offer refunds or the option of keeping their reservation in case things change. The company is still working on plans for its seasonal hiring, Hoeninghausen said. He could not say how many employees would be brought on this summer, saying the decision may change based on the level of services Xanterra can offer. He added that housing guidelines will play a role in that decision — if there can’t two people to an apartment, for example, the number of people the company hires will be limited even further.

A Dire Warning To America: Censorship Happening On An Industrial Scale As Human Zoo Tracking Tech Is Unveiled

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die Tuesday, April 28, 2020

Locked inside an auto garage waiting room for over 5 hours on Monday while our truck received some much needed and absolutely 'essential' repairs, I also became a 'slave to' and 'analyst of' C-Span propaganda for that lengthy period of time and having avoided the msm for most of the past 15+ years, immediately saw the 'social engineering' that R.X. Kendrick recently reported upon in this ANP story.

With their 'coronavirus experts' actually only political talking heads including Democrats and Republicans who all took turns ripping President Trump to shreds over his handling of this pandemic, it didn't take long for the globalists 'buzz words' to make an appearance in the numerous shows that were on. And yes, their 'experts' continuously pointed out how this pandemic was actually an 'opportunity' to do things politically that they might not have been able to do without it. Also quickly firing off another globalist talking point on this pandemic, "we're all in this together", the total unity we've seen from the msm on this 'crisis' being seen as an 'opportunity' (to bring in tyranny?) as well as them attempting to paint a picture of all Americans in this thing together when some Americans are already starving due to food shortages here is alarming. And more reasons why Americans should never let our guards down in the days, weeks and months ahead with these political hacks also pushing their reasons why this lockdown might go on for several years. As ANP readers know, over the past 5+ years, ANP has never shied away from tackling controversial topics, especially of the global geo-political nature, so we're quite used to being attacked on a regular basis by hackers who may not agree with our story's points of view. But never before have we seen such a sustained attack upon ANP as we have witnessed over the past week+. With 'ANP2' now up and running as our backup until our tech can figure out how these devils were able to get into our system in the first place and re-direct our stories elsewhere, as many ANP readers have pointed out within our comment sections, somebody must really hate our stories for such a small website such as ANP to be under such a sustained attack. Though as others have pointed out in their comments, when you're over the top of a target is when you're most likely to be attacked so if that is the case with this latest hack, we'll say 'we're honored' but the implications are huge. And while at this moment we still have no concrete proof about who has been attacking us, with this latest round of attacks beginning soon after we published the stories listed below, we have an educated guess we're being targeted for the content of our covid-19 stories. And as we'll explore within this story, 'dangerous censorship' is now being unveiled in America with 'big tech' attacking and censoring anything 'anti-vaccine' at time when globalists are ever so eager to inject the masses with their poisons and several Democrat state governors using this 'crisis' as an 'opportunity' to unveil outright tyranny within their own states. So with Susan's 'Wake Up America' blog up and running as our ANP backup until our tech can figure out exactly how these devils were able to get into our very-well-secured system, (hinting at a 'deep state/China' attack upon ANP?!), of note is that the prior round of attacks upon ANP had happened back in February when we were also all over covid-19 and reports that a weaponized virus had leaked out a lab in China. Some of our most recent stories prior to this latest series of sustained attacks upon ANP.:

Before we continue, Susan and I wish to thank all of you for your patience and support during this truly messed up time. We can promise you, these attacks upon ANP will only make us that much more committed to searching for the truth and reporting what we find in the days and weeks ahead.

(PLEASE HELP SUPPORT ANP: With Independent Media being censored on almost every internet platform, reader donations are what keeps websites like ANP up and running. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Susan & Stefan) Back in July of 2019, Mike Adams over at Natural News published this story titled "EXCLUSIVE: Google to block all anti-cancer, “anti-vax” and anti-GMO websites at the browser level as tech giant goes all-in with pharma drug cartels" within which he warned of 'big tech' getting into bed with 'big pharma' with the website 'Vaccine Today' even applauding the actions taken by 'big tech' to censor 'anti-vaccine' information. With the BBC recently announcing that YouTube will also be censoring if not outright banning videos which only theorize about a possible connection between covid-19 and 5g also showing the direction censorship is taking and it's straight towards tyranny, as Adams pointed out in that 2019 story, well before the arrival of covid-19, all of this was happening along with a merging between 'big tech' and the 'big pharma criminal cartel' From that 2019 story. By late 2020, Google’s Chrome browser will automatically block all so-called anti-cancer, “anti-vax” and anti-GMO websites as part of Google’s collapse into a Monsanto/Pharma criminal cartel. Users who want to visit websites that expose the scientifically-validated risks and potential harm of vaccines, chemotherapy, glyphosate or GMOs will have to switch to alternative browsers and search engines, since the Google.com search engine is already in the process of eliminating all such websites from its search results. Within a year or so, the Google Chrome browser won’t even allow a user to visit sites like NaturalNews.com without changing the browser’s default settings. The only websites accessible through Chrome will be those which are “approved” to promote mass medication, chemotherapy, pesticides, vaccines, fluoride, 5G cell towers and other poisons that enrich powerful, globalist corporations while dumbing down the population. This is the conclusion from a high-level source that told Natural News months ago about the coming purge of organics and natural health websites from Google — a purge that accelerated last week with the removal of Mercola.com and thousands of other natural health sites from Google search results. The situation has become so insane that now Google is pushing search suggestions like “organics is a lie” and “supplements are bad.” Google’s algorithm has already been trained to claim that “GMOs are good” and “chiropractic is fake.” And as we had reported back on April 20th, according to one of the world's leading vaccine manufacturers, a 'successful' covid-19 vaccine may never be developed due to the fact that trying to immunize against such a virus is like trying to create a vaccine for the common cold, extremely difficult if not impossible. Yet with some US states already hinting that they won't 're-open' until a vaccine is developed and 'human-zoo tracking tech' is cemented into place hinting that some US states may never re-open if a successful vaccine is their goal, as this recent story over at Exposing Satanism had reported, Americans across the country may soon have a very important choice to make, getting a microchipped vaccine and a lake of fire or freedom and ever-lasting life. With America never closer to a 'teotwawki' moment in our lifetime's than we are right now, with draconian lock-downs happening in many states already leading to food shortages while the devils use covid-19 in an attempt to completely stomp out the 1st Amendment as we're witnessing now in both California and New Jersey, all eyes and ears should be open and Americans prepared for absolutely anything as we go forward with some states now warning of lock-downs for 2 years or more as reported in this new Washington Examiner story. And nothing in our lifetime's has exposed the complete ineptitude of the entire 'government system' that wants to control our every day lives. With the food supply chain busting, food banks warning they'll possibly be running out of food happening at the same time as farmers simply throwing away millions of dollars in food and 'culling' millions of animals for disposal instead of food purposes, what we're seeing now is absolutely alarming. You want to do something for the people, 'government', then help co-ordinate getting all of this food being thrown away to the needy food banks and hungry people. Instead, 'government' works upon their sinister plans to track free people and implement their 'mark of the beast technology'. If one didn't know any better, one might think that by their complete ineptitude on getting food to the masses and their unfolding tyranny, they WANT US ALL DEAD! And with covid-19 arriving now here in 2020 and 330 million living here in the US, it's also arriving with really great timing of implementing the globalists sinister 'depopulation agenda' with the website Deagel forecasting less than 100 million people living in America by 2025, less than 5 years from now. Where will over 200 million people go? Each of the videos below take a look at this still unfolding saga of 2020. And with 'freedom' absolutely 'essential' to any free country and America quickly being used by Democrats who couldn't impeach President Trump to impose tyranny while they use this 'crisis' as an 'opportunity' to push their anti-America agenda, as Susan Duclos pointed out in this ANP story, Americans should be taking note of the names of the enemies of freedom and America within.

GLOBAL ECONOMIC MELTDOWN: Major Impact On Silver Investment & Market

April 28, 2020

The global meltdown will turn into an economic depression in which few are prepared…

by Steve St Angelo of SRSrocco Report

The global meltdown will turn into an economic depression in which few are prepared. The mainstream financial media focuses on the highly inflated stock rally and safety in the bond market, while the underlying fundamentals of the economy continue to disintegrate. However, “Earnings Season” is getting ready to start… so watch for fireworks to begin shortly. Even though the Fed and central banks can prop up the stock market and financial assets, they stop the coming gauntlet of LOUSY EARNINGS DATA. How can the Dow Jones Index be trading at 24,000 while the main driver of the economy, “The Oil Industry,” is being destroyed in rapid order? With the U.S. oil price closing in the $12 range, negative oil prices are once again around the corner. In my newest video, GLOBAL MELTDOWN: Major Impact On Silver Investment & Market, I discuss the deteriorating economic indicators and how they will be negative for silver supply and positive for silver investment. Man Who Predicted 2020 Gold Rally Issues New Call Sponsored By Stansberry Research Gold expert explains why massive shift happening right now in the financial markets could create biggest opportunity in last 100 years.. Read More In one of my last video updates, I forecasted that the global silver mine supply would decline between 100-150 Moz in 2020. Well, this looks like a more realistic forecast because both Peru and Mexico extended the lockdown of their economies: With Mexico and Peru locked down for two months, upwards of 50 million oz of silver was lost. Furthermore, if we include the coming collapse in global base metal demand, we could easily see 100+ million oz of silver mine supply curtailed this year. In the video, I provide the most updated data on global silver supply as a by-product of base metal mining.

I believe global silver mine supply will be falling right at the very time we see RECORD PHYSICAL SILVER INVESTMENT demand.

"We Are Moving Into The End-Game": 27 Tankers Anchored Off California, Hundreds Off Singapore As Oil Industry Shuts Down

by Tyler Durden Mon, 04/27/2020 - 06:55

Back in the late fall of 2014, when Saudi Arabia broke up OPEC for the first time and unleashed a torrent of crude oil on the world despite the protests of its fellow cartel members, oil prices crashed as a result of what then seemed to be a "calculated" move by Riyadh which hoped to put US shale out of business amid a flawed gamble betting that shale breakeven prices were around $60-80. They, however, turned out to be much lower, which coupled with Saudi misreading of the willingness of junk bond investors to keep funding US shale producers, meant that despite a 3 years stretch of low oil prices, US shale emerged stronger than ever before, with the US eventually eclipsing both Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world's biggest crude oil producer. Fast forward to March 2020, when Saudi Arabia doubled down in its attempt to crush shale, only to avoid angering long-time ally Donald Trump, the Crown Prince pretended that the latest flood of oil was an oil price war aimed at Moscow not Midland. And this time, unlike 2014, with the benefit of the global economic shutdown resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, the Saudis may have finally lucked out in the ongoing crusade against US oil, because as Bloomberg writes with "negative oil prices, ships dawdling at sea with unwanted cargoes, and traders getting creative about where to stash oil", the next chapter in the oil crisis is now inevitable: "great swathes of the petroleum industry are about to start shutting down." As the recent OPEC summit so vividly demonstrated, the marginal price of oil is no longer determined by supply or cuts thereof (such as the recently announced agreement by OPEC+ for a 9.7mmb/d output cut), but rather by demand, or the lack thereof, which according to some estimate is as much as 36mmb/d lower, or roughly a third of the global oil market every day, as billions of people are stuck at home instead of driving, while major corporations mothball production in a world where major economies have ground to a halt. The economic impact of the coronavirus has ripped through the oil industry in dramatic phases, Bloomberg's Javier Blas writes. First it destroyed demand as lockdowns shut factories and kept drivers at home. Then storage started filling up and traders resorted to ocean-going tankers to store crude in the hope of better prices ahead. Now shipping prices are surging to stratospheric levels as the industry runs out of tankers, a sign of just how distorted the market has become. Ironically, in its latest attempt to kill off shale, Saudi Arabia may have gone a step too far, as "the specter of production shut-downs - and the impact they will have on jobs, companies, their banks, and local economies - was one of the reasons that spurred world leaders to join forces to cut production in an orderly way. But as the scale of the crisis dwarfed their efforts, failing to stop prices diving below zero last week, shut-downs are now a reality. It’s the worst-case scenario for producers and refiners." In short, the entire oil production industry is shutting down, not because it wants to - of course - but because it has no choice. According to Goldman, in as little as three weeks there will be literally no place left on earth to store oil, and unless oil producers want to pay "buyers" to hold the oil as happened on that historic date of April 20, they have no choice but to shut in output. "We are moving into the end-game," said Torbjorn Tornqvist, head of commodity trading giant Gunvor Group. "Early-to-mid May could be the peak. We are weeks, not months, away from it." Which brings us back to why in 2020 Riyadh has succeeded where it failed in 2014: as Bloomberg writes "in theory, the first oil output cuts should have come from the OPEC+ alliance, which earlier this month agreed to reduce production from May 1. Yet after the catastrophic price plunge on Monday, when West Texas Intermediate fell to -$40 a barrel, it’s the U.S. shale patch that is leading" The best indicator of how the shale industry is reacting is the sudden collapse in the number of oil rigs in operation, which last week fell to a four-year low: "Before the coronavirus crisis hit, oil companies ran about 650 rigs in the US. By Friday, more than 40% of them had stopped working, with only 378 left." And while there is a delay between total US oil production and the rig count, it is now obvious that US production is set to collapse next: “Monday really focused people’s minds that production needs to slow down,” said the co-head of oil trading at commodity merchant Trafigura. "It’s the smack in the face the market needed to realize this is serious." Incidentally, Trafigura, one of the largest exporters of US crude from the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, believes that output in Texas, New Mexico, North Dakota and other states will now fall much faster than expected as companies react to negative prices... ... evidence US commercial storage space for physical at Cushing has run out with what inventory is left having been called for - which have persisted for several days last week in the physical market. Until prices collapsed on Monday, the consensus was that output would drop by about 1.5MM barrels a day by December. Now market watchers see that loss by late June. “The severity of the price pressure is likely to act as a catalyst for the immediate turndown in activity and shut-ins,” said Roger Diwan, oil analyst at consultant IHS Markit Ltd. As detailed last week, this price shock has been especially acute in the physical market where producers of crude streams such as South Texas Sour and Eastern Kansas Common had to pay more than $50 a barrel to offload their output last week. And so the US industry is finally shutting down as ConocoPhillips and shale producer Continental Resources have all announced plans to shut in output. Regulators in Oklahoma voted to allow oil drillers to shut wells without losing leases; New Mexico made a similar decision. Even North Dakota, which for years was synonymous with the U.S. shale revolution, is witnessing a rapid retrenchment, as Bloomberg notes that "oil producers have already closed more than 6,000 wells, curtailing about 405,000 barrels a day in production, or about 30% of the state’s total." However, it won't be just the US: output cuts can be seen from Chad, a poor and landlocked country in Africa, to Vietnam and Brazil, producers are now either reducing output or making plans to do so. “I wouldn’t want to get sensational about it but yes, clearly there must be a risk of shut-ins,” Mitch Flegg, the head of North Sea oil company Serica Energy, said in an interview. “In certain parts of the world it is a real and present risk.” In emergency board meetings last week, oil companies small and large discussed an outlook that’s the most somber any oil executive has ever witnessed. For the small firms, the next few weeks will be all about staying afloat. But even for the bigger ones, like Exxon Mobil Corp. and BP Plc, it’s a challenge. Big Oil will offer an insight into the crisis when companies report earnings this week. Then on Friday, May 1, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the rest of OPEC+ will join the output cuts, slashing their output by 23%, or 9.7 million barrels a day. Saudi Aramco, the state-owned company has already cut production, and Russian oil companies have announced exports of their flagship Urals crude would drop in May to a 10-year low. And yet, as warned here repeatedly, it may still not be enough, as every week, another 50 million barrels of crude are going into storage, enough to fuel Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the U.K. combined, with estimates that the world will run out of land-based storage some time in late May or early June. Meanwhile, what’s not stored onshore, is stashed in tankers. As Bloomberg's Blas points out, the U.S. Coast Guard on Friday said there were so many tankers at anchor off California that it was keeping an eye on the situation. There is some good news: oil traders say after plunging by a third, US oil consumption has probably hit a bottom, and will start a very gentle recovery, although that also depends on how fast the US economy can reopen from the coronavirus coma. But before even a modest recovery takes hold, the great shutdown will spread through oil refining too. Over the past week, Marathon Petroleum, one of the biggest U.S. refiners, announced it would stop production at a plant near San Francisco. Royal Dutch Shell has idled several units in three U.S. refineries in Alabama and Louisiana. And across Europe and Asia, many refineries are running at half rate. U.S. oil refiners processed just 12.45 million barrels a day on the week to April 17, the lowest amount in at least 30 years, except for hurricane-related closures. The closures have already sent thousands packing: the oil and gas industry shed nearly 51,000 drilling and refining jobs in March, a 9% reduction that will only get worse in April. March’s job losses rise by 15,000 when ancillary jobs such as construction, manufacturing of drilling equipment and shipping are included, according to BW Research Partnership, a research consultancy, which analyzed Department of Labor data combined with the firm’s own survey data of about 30,000 energy companies. "We’re looking at anywhere between five and seven years of job growth wiped out in a month,” Philip Jordan, the company’s vice president said in an interview. "What makes it sort of scary is this really is just the beginning. April is not looking good for oil and gas." And so, as the oil industry shuts down - at least for a few weeks (or perhaps months) - more refinery shutdowns are coming, oil traders and consultants said, particularly in the U.S. where lockdowns started later than in Europe and demand is still contracting. Steve Sawyer, director of refining at Facts Global Energy, said that global refineries could halt as much as 25% of total capacity in May. “No one is going to be able to dodge this bullet.”

THOMAS HORN WARNS: Get Ready for End-of-Days Demons in High Places

April 30, 2020 by SkyWatch Editor By Thomas Horn

The English theologian George Hawkins Pember, in his 1876 masterpiece, Earth’s Earliest Ages, analysed the prophecy of Jesus Christ that says the end times would be a repeat of “the days of Noah.” Pember outlined the seven great causes of the antediluvian destruction and documented their developmental beginnings in his lifetime. The seventh and most fearful sign, Pember wrote, would be the return of the spirits of Nephilim, “the appearance upon earth of beings from the Principality of the Air, and their unlawful intercourse with the human race.” Jesus Himself, in answering His disciples concerning the signs of His coming and of the end of the world, said it would be “as the days of Noah were” (Matt. 24:37). The implication is, just as it was before the Flood when the spirits of Nephilim were powerful upon earth (Gen. 6:4), mankind would experience an end-times renaissance of the influence of these entities. From Scripture we are made to understand the purpose of this latter-day wave of supernaturalism includes deception (2 Tim. 3:13), and the effect upon mankind would be so successful that heresy and delusion would become firmly entrenched—even within institutionalized Christianity. In writing of this scenario, Paul prophesied to Timothy that “in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” (1 Tim. 4:1).

Based on contemporary developments, the foretold increase in demonism and its influence within secular and religious society is rapidly unfolding in this century—abruptly, dramatically, and suspiciously. Biblical scholar Gary Stearman agrees, stating in disturbing language how the manifestation of these powers are quickening now because the world is under conditions “in which the influence of God’s Holy Spirit is diminishing.”[i] This is apparent not only in metaphysics, but within science and technology, where genetic engineering and transhumanist aspirations seem literally hell-bent on repeating what the Watchers did in giving birth to the spirits of Nephilim as in the days of Noah. The First Time Nephilim Appeared on Earth As far back as the beginning of time and within every major culture of the ancient world, the astonishingly consistent story is told of “gods” that descended from heaven and materialized in bodies of flesh. From Rome to Greece—and before that, to Egypt, Persia, Assyria, Babylonia, and Sumer—the earliest records of civilization tell of the era when powerful beings known to the Hebrews as “Watchers” and in the book of Genesis as the benei ha-elohim (“sons of God”) mingled themselves with humans, giving birth to part-celestial, part-terrestrial hybrids known as “Nephilim.” The Bible says this happened when men began to increase on earth and daughters were born to them. When the sons of God saw the women’s beauty, they took wives from among them to sire their unusual offspring. In Genesis 6:4, we read the following account: “There were giants [Nephilim] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

When this Scripture is compared with other ancient texts, including Enoch, Jubilees, Baruch, Genesis Apocryphon, Philo, Josephus, Jasher, and others, it unfolds to some that the giants of the Old Testament such as Goliath were the part-human, part-animal, part-angelic offspring of a supernatural interruption into the divine order and natural development of the species. Enoch was the son of Jared, father of Methuselah, and great-grandfather of Noah whose writings provide the most detailed account of the fall of the Watchers, the angels who fathered the infamous Nephilim. While the book of Enoch is no longer included in most versions of the Bible, Enoch’s writings are quoted in the New Testament in at least two places, and he is mentioned by name in both the Old and New Testaments, including Jude 14–15, where one of his prophecies is cited. During the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, pre-Maccabean fragments of the book of Enoch were found, helping scholars verify the book’s antiquity while also illustrating that the ancients held these texts to be inspired. Many early church fathers likewise considered the book of Enoch to be sacred, including Tertullian, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Origen, and Clement of Alexandria. Dr. Michael Heiser is now speaking out on why YOU should understand this ancient text, which among other things gives a name to the angels involved in this cosmic conspiracy, calling them “Watchers.” We read: And I Enoch was blessing the Lord of majesty and the King of the ages, and lo! the Watchers called me—Enoch the scribe—and said to me: “Enoch, thou scribe of righteousness, go, declare to the Watchers of the heaven who have left the high heaven, the holy eternal place, and have defiled themselves with women, and have done as the children of earth do, and have taken unto themselves wives: Ye have wrought great destruction on the earth: And ye shall have no peace nor forgiveness of sin: and inasmuch as they delight themselves in their children [the Nephilim], The murder of their beloved ones shall they see, and over the destruction of their children shall they lament, and shall make supplication unto eternity, but mercy and peace shall ye not attain.” (1 Enoch 10:3–8) According to Enoch, two hundred of these powerful angels departed “high heaven” and used women (among other things) to extend their progeny into mankind’s plane of existence. I once read an Interlinear Hebrew Bible’s interesting interpretation of Genesis 6:2 in this regard. Where the King James Version of the Bible says, “The sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair,” the IHN interpreted this as, “The benei Elohim saw the daughters of Adam, that they were fit extensions” (emphasis added). The term “fit extensions” seems applicable when the whole of the ancient record is understood to mean that the Watchers wanted to leave their proper sphere of existence in order to enter earth’s three-dimensional reality. They viewed women—or at least their genetic material—as part of the formula for accomplishing this task. Departing the proper habitation that God had assigned them was grievous to the Lord and led to divine penalization. Jude described it this way: The “angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 6).

Besides apocryphal, pseudepigraphic, and Jewish traditions related to the legend of the Watchers and the “mighty men” born of their union with humans, mythologized accounts tell the stories of “gods” using humans to produce heroes or demigods (half-gods). When the ancient Greek version of the Hebrew Old Testament (the LXX or Septuagint) was made, the word “Nephilim”—referring to the part-human offspring of the Watchers—was translated gegenes, a word implying “earth born.” This same terminology was used to describe the Greek Titans and other legendary heroes of partly celestial and partly terrestrial origin, such as Hercules (born of Zeus and the mortal Alcmena), Achilles (the Trojan hero son of Thetis and Peleus), and Gilgamesh (the two-thirds god and one-third human child of Lugalbanda and Ninsun). These demigods were likewise accompanied in texts and idol representation by half-animal and half-human creatures like centaurs (the part-human, part-horse offspring of Apollo’s son, Centaurus), chimeras, furies, satyrs, gorgons, nymphs, Minotaurs, and other genetic aberrations. All of this seems to indicate that the Watchers not only modified human DNA during the construction of Nephilim, but that of animals as well, a point the book of Enoch supports, saying in the seventh chapter that the fallen angels “sinned” against animals as well as humans. Other books such as Jubilees add that this interspecies mingling eventually resulted in mutations among normal humans and animals whose “flesh” (genetic makeup) was “corrupted” by the activity, presumably through crossbreeding (see 5:1–5; 7:21–25). Even the Old Testament contains reference to the genetic mutations that developed among humans following this time frame, including “men” of unusual size, physical strength, six fingers, six toes, animal appetite for blood, and even lion-like features (2 Sam. 21:20; 23:20). But of all the ancient records, the most telling extra-biblical script is from the disputed book of Jasher, a mostly forgotten text referred to in the Bible in Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18. Jasher records the familiar story of the fall of the Watchers, then adds an exceptional detail that none of the other texts is as unequivocal about, something that can only be understood in modern language to mean advanced biotechnology, genetic engineering, or “transgenic modification” of species. After the Watchers had instructed humans “in the secrets of heaven,” note what Jasher says occurred: “[Then] the sons of men [began teaching] the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord” (4:18). The phrase “the mixture of animals of one species with the other” does not mean Watchers had taught men hybridization, as this would not have “provoked the Lord.” God made like animals of different breeds capable of reproducing. For example, horses can propagate with other mammals of the equidae classification (the taxonomic “horse family”), including donkeys and zebras. It would not have “provoked the Lord” for this type of animal breeding to have taken place, as God Himself made the animals able to do this. If, on the other hand, the Watchers were crossing species boundaries by mixing incompatible animals of one species with the other, such as a horse with a human (a centaur), this would have been a different matter and may cast light on the numerous ancient stories of mythical beings of variant-species manufacturing that fit perfectly within the records of what the Watchers were accomplishing. Understandably, this kind of chimera-making would have “provoked the Lord” and raises the serious question of why the Watchers would have risked eternal damnation by tinkering with God’s creation in this way. Yahweh had placed boundaries between the species and strictly ordered that “each kind” reproduce only after its “own kind.” Was the motive of the Watchers to break these rules simply the desire to rebel, to assault God’s creative genius through biologically altering what He had made? Or was something of deeper significance behind the activity? Some believe the corruption of antediluvian DNA by Watchers was an effort to cut off the birth line of the Messiah. This theory posits that Satan understood the protoevangelium—the promise in Genesis 3:15 that a Savior would be born, the seed of the woman, and that He would destroy the fallen angel’s power. Satan’s followers therefore intermingled with the human race in a conspiracy to stop the birth of Christ. If human DNA could be universally corrupted or “demonized,” they reasoned, no Savior would be born and mankind would be lost forever. Those who support this theory believe this is why God ordered His people to maintain a pure bloodline and not to intermarry with the other nations. When men breached this command and the mutated DNA began rapidly spreading among humans and animals, God instructed Noah to build an ark and to prepare for a flood that would destroy every living thing. That God had to send such a universal fiat like the Flood illustrates how widespread the altered DNA eventually became. In fact, the Bible says in Genesis 6:9 that only Noah—and by extension, his children—were found “perfect” in their generation. The Hebrew word for “perfect” in this case is tamiym, which means “without blemish” or “healthy,” the same word used in Leviticus to describe an unblemished sacrificial lamb. The meaning was not that Noah was morally perfect, but that his physical makeup—his DNA—had not been contaminated with Nephilim descent, as apparently the rest of the world had become. In order to preserve mankind as He had made them, God destroyed all but Noah’s family in the Flood. The ancient records including those of the Bible appear to agree with this theology, consistently describing the cause of the Flood as happening in response to “all flesh” having become “corrupted, both man and beast.” While I believe the theory of DNA corruption as an intended method for halting the coming of Christ has merit, an alternative or additional reason the Watchers may have blended living organisms exists in a theory I postulated in my book, Zenith 2016. In that book, I speculated that the manipulation of DNA may have had a deeper purpose—namely to create a hybrid form that neither the spirit of man nor God would inhabit, because it was neither man nor beast, and thus provided an unusual body made up of human, animal, and plant genetics known as Nephilim, an earth-born facsimile or “fit extension” into which the Watchers could extend themselves.

WILL THE TRUE CHURCH SOON BE DRIVEN UNDERGROUND?

April 28, 2020 by SkyWatch Editor

Last Friday an article by Scott Lively caught my attention. It was titled ‘It’s not too early to prepare for the underground church’ in which the author clarified, “What I’m talking about is not just expanding the ‘house church’ movement, but anticipating the need for an ‘underground church.’” He then added: “Probably sooner rather than later, the Bride of Christ will have need of an ‘off the grid’ communication and fellowship network that can’t easily be identified and tracked.” Lively arrived at these unnerving conclusions largely based on his belief that here in America under the current Covid-19 lockdown, church gatherings have been a major target of government suppression, and he expects that this trend will steadily grow and worsen even after sheltering in place has ended. While much of what Mr. Lively opined is certainly possible—and if progressives win the presidential election in November, you can bet his worrisome predictions could begin bearing fruit almost immediately—I would add a very important element that he, like many others, has overlooked; an imminent eschatological reality that formed the basis of my bestselling book, Blood on the Altar (get it free in offer here) involving a curious, prophesied prelude to a coming period in history wherein true believers will be “beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God…” (Rev. 20:4). When analyzing this particular end-times Revelation scenario—especially the subject of rigorous persecution—what often goes unnoticed is the role that religious “Christians” are being shaped today to play against the true body of Christ. Even the subtitle of my Blood on the Altar work and the concept of a coming war between “Christians” could seem beyond credulity if it were not for what the inspired texts themselves convey. Jesus predicted a time when “whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service” (John 16:2), and in Matthew 24, He told His disciples: Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you; and ye shall be hated of all [groups of people] for my name’s sake.

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold. (Matthew 24:9–12)

Elsewhere in the Bible when describing this coming era of Great Tribulation, it says Antichrist will be able “to make war with the saints, and to overcome them” (Rev. 13:7; see also Dan. 7:21). Immediately following those verses, description of a second beast emerges with “two horns like a lamb” who speaks “like a dragon” (Rev. 13:11). Most evangelical scholars identify this second “beast” as the leader of the end-times religious institution who will be under Satan’s control. The phrase “like a lamb” indicates he will pretend to represent the Lamb of God and the Christian church, while the expression “speaks like a dragon” identifies the devilish source of his authority and power. This final, global, super-church leader will be a murderer not unlike Antichrist and will cause “that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Rev. 13:15). Thus, the book of Revelation outlines how the political figure of Antichrist derives ultranational dominance from the world’s religious faithful through the influence of an ecclesiastical leader (also called the False Prophet) who will not hesitate to swim in the blood of the genuine saints of God. In the days between now and when these men of sin are identified, this reality—that latter-day churchgoers will soon believe they are serving the kingdom of God by participating in or approving the death of conservative Christians—is not a concept lost on all contemporary churchmen. There are those who see things taking shape even now for a war that will eventually pit religious “Christians” against the real members of the body of Christ. For example, the Archbishop of Canterbury and the most senior Bishop in the Church of England, Justin Welby, stated not long ago that “modern Christians” will soon be “‘called’ to suffer and even die for the faith” in a new era “of martyrdom.”[i] But a clarifying document that was not supposed to be made public and which was authored by a senior advisor to Welby’s predecessor details how such a time of great persecution is coming because true believers will, according to the letter, be driven underground by liberal Christians and will become a dissident association comparable to resistance movements during World War II.[ii] Dr. J. Vernon McGee, one of America’s most beloved Bible teachers of the past century, taught the same and clarified that these true biblical believers would ultimately be driven “underground” by none other than latter-day denominational churches. Another of the twentieth century’s most perceptive writers was pastor and author A. W. Tozer (who was not usually given to prognostication), who likewise wrote: Let me go out on a limb a little bit and prophesy. I see the time coming when all the holy men whose eyes have been opened by the Holy Spirit will desert worldly Evangelicalism, one by one. The house [institutional Christianity] will be left desolate and there will not be a man of God, a man in whom the Holy Spirit dwells, left among them. [iii] These Holy-Spirit-devoid church attenders will soon join internet trolls and other “religious types” to constitute Antichrist’s apostate religious and political order (connected to “Mystery Babylon” in Revelation 17) and, as unfathomable as it may sound, will seek to formulate perhaps the most egregious rank among the Man of Sin’s Gestapo members in their appetite for destroying latter-day, truly born-again believers.

Impossible, some might say? Tell that to the trainloads of Jews who vanished beneath the brutality of Nazi Germany members who maintained their Protestant faith or to the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children who have died since the days of Christ’s crucifixion and the martyrdom of His disciples at the hands of institutional church authorities and holy temple leaders. The European wars of religion (sixteenth and seventeenth centuries) are further examples of such mayhem by very religious people, as could also be considered the Muslim conquests (seventh to nineteenth centuries), the Crusades (eleventh to thirteenth centuries), the Spanish Reconquista (eighth to fifteenth centuries), the Ottoman wars in Europe (fifteenth to nineteenth centuries) and the Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church (twelfth to fourteenth centuries).

Normal Is Never Coming Back - Americans Must Remember Who The Tyrannical Dictators In America Were During The COVID-19 Pandemic

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine Monday, April 27, 2020

The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has shown to have a very unusual side effect in those that have never been infected, and while I am not a doctor and am not qualified to actually diagnose mental health issues, this "side effect" in the healthy presents as brain damage. It isn't only the food shortage issue, or the state lockdowns and refusal of some states to lift their stay-at-home orders until some arbitrary date with no explanation of why certain dates were chosen, that has created a "new normal" which is very ugly in terms of constitutional freedoms and civil liberties, but the states' over-reach, threats, stupid-as-a-stump decisions, shows exactly how tyrannical some of our elected officials are deep down inside. Case in point: Conservative activist Ben Shapiro, took to social media to describe something that was witnessed and filmed by a friend of his in California: First tweet: "A friend of mine took his family to the beach in Oxnard today. Yes, they were socially distancing. About thirty feet away, the police proceeded to tell a 93-year-old couple -- sitting away from people on beach chairs -- that they could sit on the sand but not on the chairs." Second: "The reason? Apparently, the police have been informed that it's okay to swim or walk or sit in "temporary fashion," but chairs represent permanence. Even for 93-year-olds. Because everyone is an idiot." Third: "I'll play the video on the show tomorrow. Because this is just asinine. Americans are, by and large, being smart and reasonable. A lot of the authorities aren't." Readers can see the rest of that thread over at Twitchy, but that is just one example offering evidence that people, especially state officials and law enforcement, have apparently lost their freaking minds, and ample proof that common sense is no longer very common. POPULACE IS HANDLING PANDEMIC FAR BETTER THAN STATE OFFICIALS As we have seen in our own comment sections, along with chat forums and social media, the news that the food chain is going to take far longer to even start to recover, if it ever will, because livestock is going to have to start being "depopulated," aka killed because they cannot get them processed because of plant shutdowns, smart people are watching and acting accordingly. State officials said that as many as 40,000 pigs are not being processed daily, causing pork producers to lose as much as 40 percent of their production capacity. This slows the supply chain as market-weight hogs aren’t sent for processing, while hundreds of new piglets arrive to be fed and fattened. “Depopulation is a last resort for any farmer, but it may be necessary to prevent animal welfare issues,” Naig said in the Register report. Readers are talking about stocking up on canned meats to add to their fresh vegetables many are going to be harvesting from their indoor/outdoor gardens they have recently begun. We see readers describing the safety measures they are taking when they go out, shopping or whatever the need may be. We note that when we offer tips and ideas and resources to make things easier, our readers do the same. Decent people are always willing to help others, while the out-of-touch elite and establishment media, along with their sycophants, living in their own little bubbles, are busy lecturing everyone else on their perceived shortcomings. Celebrities have become so obnoxiously holier-than-thou that one woman, along with others, decided to tell them how "helpful" they have been to folks battling to survive. (Major snark and sarcasm alert!) That video in three days has gotten almost half a million views. Watch below: The point here is that most of "we the people" are handling the pandemic and the balancing safety with freedom, but the authorities, local law enforcement, and especially elected state leaders, have all gone straight off the cliff and are trying to drag us all with them. We the people, for the most part, have also had it right up the eyeballs with the tyrannical "rules," state officials have set in place, most of which violate our very constitutional rights. Make no mistake this type of government overreach is not limited to the state leaders in the U.S., but we are seeing the same type of behavior as those cops harassing that 90+ year-old couple on the beach for daring to sit in a chair instead of trying to get down and back up off the sand, in other countries. In Australia the cops are patrolling the streets and enforcing social distancing. In Italy cops arrest a man, sunbathing on a deserted beach. Yes, deserted, no one there, alone, not near anyone else.... and they arrested him for breaking the rules which basically turned the citizenry into prisoners in their own homes. That is a lot like that board surfer in Malibu, all alone in the ocean, until the cops were called, and they THEN broke social distancing to arrest him.... yes, that was here in the good ole U.S.A. Authorities, those that are supposed to keep a cool heads, think about what is happening and apply simple common sense, are not. They are allowing panicked elected officials to violate the constitutional rights of Americans, and they are enforcing these draconian and tyrannical orders. Well some are, but a few, courageous men taking their oath to defend the constitution seriously, are refusing to obey the leaders-who-want-be-dictators, and deserve kudos. Sheriffs from four different Michigan counties said Wednesday they will not strictly enforce Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s social-distancing restrictions that critics say have gone too far. “While we understand her desire to protect the public, we question some restrictions that she has imposed as overstepping her executive authority,” Leelanau County Sheriff Mike Borkovich, Benzie County Sheriff Ted Schendel, Manistee County Sheriff Ken Falk and Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said in a press release. “She has created a vague framework of emergency laws that only confuse Michigan citizens,” the sheriffs said, according to Michigan Live. The sheriffs said that, instead of stringent enforcement, they “will deal with every case as an individual situation and apply common sense.” That ladies and gentlemen is how it is done! BOTTOM LINE - NORMAL IS NEVER COMING BACK From the food chain and distribution which almost every expert agrees is and will continue to disrupt the food supply, to the state leaders who have not felt nearly enough push-back, which in turn encourages them to stomp a little harder with their boot on their residents' necks, what we all thought of as "normal," is never coming back in a variety of different ways. Hopefully the resident's complaining and protesting remember which elected officials attempted to keep their states "closed" and businesses shut down indefinitely, and which are attempting to get their economy kick-started again before it collapses totally.

If they don't remember it come election time.... they get what they deserve.

Physical Gold Premiums Soar To Highest Since Crimean Conflict As Congressman Questions COMEX

by Tyler Durden Mon, 04/27/2020 - 17:20

The gold market remains chaotic with physical (geographical) shortages, increasing physical demand, paper squeezes, retail interest soaring, and now congressmen raising concerns with regulators. First some good news (ish) - The last few weeks have seen the huge premium for between COMEX futures and spot compress as Bloomberg reports that Australia’s largest gold refinery has ramped up production of one kilogram bars to ease the supply squeeze in the US. “We’re producing as many kilobars as we can, we’re probably churning out seven and a half tons of them a week at the moment and we are forward sold well into May,” Richard Hayes, chief executive officer of the Perth Mint, said in an interview. “A very large portion of those kilobars are ending up as Comex deliveries.” And the futures-spot premium has compressed (though remains rich to normal)... The mint, which reopened a kilobar production line in response to the supply crunch, expects elevated demand to prove to be only a short-term issue. "Arbitrage issues around the Comex will be short lived and I don’t see them lasting for months and months,” Hayes said. “This is this is an unusual situation where you’ve got plenty of physical metal, it’s just in the wrong form and in the wrong place.” This whole debacle and the COMEX changing rules for delivery prompted representative Alex Mooney (R-WV) - who has ostensibly continued where former Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) left off - to raise questions with the CFTC about his growing concerns about delivery defaults in gold and silver. Dear Chairman Tarbert: As you know, there have been significant stresses and delivery difficulties unfolding in the CFTC-regulated gold market. In fact, the entities running the Comex and London markets hastily changed their rules last month to allow 400-ounce gold bars located in London to be substituted in satisfaction of CFTC-regulated contracts standing for delivery of 100-ounce gold bars in the U.S.

This remarkable new trans-oceanic mechanism appears, essentially, to have institutionalized the Exchange for Physical (EFP) emergency mechanism about which I raised concerns to you previously. Because there is apparently a dearth of gold and silver available for delivery in our country, use of this EFP mechanism to offload the physical demand to London had already become massive and routine.

Why is the Commission permitting large gold delivery liabilities in the U.S. to be so routinely transferred to London markets? I am increasingly concerned about the rising risk of defaults in the U.S. gold and silver markets and a resulting loss of confidence in our markets. A major default in gold and/or silver could have profound monetary policy implications as well. Furthermore, I ask for direct answers to two questions I posed previously. My questions (in italics) and your responses provided on January 28 are as follows:

1) Does the commission have jurisdiction over manipulative futures trading by the U.S. government or its brokers or agents or other governments?

“The CFTC has exclusive jurisdiction over futures trading on trading facilities registered with the Commission as Designated Contract Markets.”

2) Is the commission aware of futures trading by the U.S. government, its brokers, or agents?

“Pursuant to Section 8 of the Commodity Exchange Act and except as otherwise specifically authorized, the Commission may not publish ‘data and information that would separately disclose the business transactions or market positions of any person and trade secrets or names of customers.’”

Both of my questions call for simple “Yes” or “No” answers. Direct answers to these questions should not violate Section 8 of the Commodity Exchange Act. Simply acknowledging trading by governments, or on behalf of governments, would not disclose business transactions or market positions.

Thank you, and I await your response

We won't be holding our breath for a response that satisfies, but we do note that the Congressman's concerns are much more widespread. Not helping any physical demand is the fact that the US Mint recently halted all production (over COVID-19 contagion fears), despite soaring demand for gold coins... Source: Bloomberg

As Everett Millman, a precious-metals specialist at Gainesville Coins in Florida, warns,

The timing is awful, it’s going to exacerbate the supply shortage” in the coin market when demand is soaring. And it is showing up dramatically in retail price premiums, as Bloomberg reports, which have jumped to $135, more than tripling from two months ago, said Robert Higgins, chief executive officer at Argent Asset Group LLC in Wilmington, Delaware. “There has never been a time for American Gold Eagles at this premium level,” Higgins said in an interview, referring to the popular U.S. bullion coin. This is the greatest premium since the Crimea conflict sparked a massive safe haven bid in April 2014.

Until the world catches up with the imbalance and gets back to a normal balance of supply and demand, the premiums will stay,” Higgins said. Higgins, a 40-year industry veteran, operates a wholesale business that typically deals with an average of 1 million to 1.5 million ounces of gold each month. That jumped to more than 6.5 million ounces in March as premiums surged, he said. This extreme physical premium fits with what the Perth Mint's CEO concluded.. “For every coin we make, be it gold or silver, we could probably sell five or six of them,” he said. “That strong demand will be a little longer-lasting, I expect, as people have been quite badly frightened by this whole Covid disaster.”

Meanwhile, SchiffGold.com's Peter Schiff said that earnings reports roll in, and broadly disappoint, one group is set to do well - gold mines are literally 'gold mines'. Peter said it doesn’t surprise him that some companies are benefitting from coronavirus. Obviously, if people aren’t going out and they’re staying in, maybe they’re spending money online that might otherwise have been spent through other vehicles. But of course, ultimately a lot of these consumers are just not going to have the money to spend. They’re going to run out of aid from the government, or the government money is going to run out of purchasing power due to inflation.” Peter said he thinks the vast majority of companies will see substantial hits to their earnings. And it’s not just because of the pandemic. It’s also due to the recession that was going to start anyway. Peter emphasized that government and central bank policy are at the root of the problem. A lot of companies have been able to borrow cheap and then use the cash to buy back their own overpriced stocks. Many of these companies are now the recipient of bailout money, unfortunately. They should be allowed to fail so new management teams can step and clean house. Instead, we are perpetuating the management teams that made these reckless decisions. But of course, these decisions were made based on monetary policy that was being provided by the Fed, and the Fed is now doubling down on that failed policy.” Peter said the only thing the market has going for it is the Fed. Meanwhile, in order to prop up the market, the Fed has to destroy the purchasing power of the dollar, so what investors should be doing is buying gold stocks. Because gold and gold stocks will be the biggest beneficiaries of monetary policy.” The host brought up the decline in some of the industrial metals like nickel and copper. Peter said precious metals are a totally different story. They are a monetary alternative to fiat currencies that are being debased the world over, but particularly in the United States. So, I think when it comes to earnings, gold stocks are going to be among the few companies that see a huge boost to their earnings. In fact, they are benefitting from the reduction in energy prices because energy is a key cost when it comes to operating a gold mine. So, gold mines right now literally are gold mines, and I think investors are ignoring the potential.”

As Robert Mish, President of Mish International Monetary Inc - a dealer in precious metal bullion and coins, based in Menlo Park, California, who has been selling gold coins at highly elevated levels for three to four weeks - told Bloomberg: “It’s crazy... There is a factor in the market that many of the buyers do not trust the system anymore and want to get their metal in their hands for certain.”

The surge in gold demand is similar to the buying panic that has emptied stores of toilet paper. “When people think they can’t get something, they want it even more.” Except in this case, there is a fundamental driver behind the demand - as Kyle Bass so eloquently noted 10 years ago: "Buying gold is just buying a put against the idiocy of the political cycle. It's That Simple" And judging by the shrill calls for UBI, MMT, and negative rates in the US, that idiocy is just about to reach '11'.

Tallest volcano in Eurasia erupts in Russia’s Far East, spewing ash 7,000m into the skies

April 28, 2020

The eruption of the Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano in Russia’s Kamchatka has created spectacular scenes, producing rivers of lava and massive smoke clouds – but scientists worry that the resulting ash cloud could disrupt air traffic. The latest activity within the steep symmetrical cone of the volcano – the highest in Eurasia – blew ash some 7,000 meters into the air on Monday, the Emergencies Ministry said. Klyuchevskaya Sopka, at 4,649 meters in height, was effectively inactive for three years before it started spewing lava again last October – and the smoldering eruption has continued to some degree ever since. The Kamchatka Peninsula is a remote, yet picturesque, area in Russia’s Far East, and there are no cities or towns within close proximity of the clouds of ash pumping out of the volcano. However, researchers at Russia’s Academy of Sciences (RAS) are still closely monitoring the eruption, as it could potentially cause significant air traffic disruptions. Civilian flights might be grounded due to Covid-19, but the most essential cargo is still being delivered by plane. “Ash trails from the volcano can stretch thousands of kilometers and cross aviation routes,” so being able to predict where the cloud goes is “extremely important,” Aleksey Ozerov, the head of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology at the Far Eastern Branch of RAS, told RT’s Ruptly video agency. –RT

Is America Turning Into a Communist Country? What We Are Going to do When They Come For Our Freedom Of Speech And Our Freedom to Bear Arms?

Posted byeogabi boanca April 28, 2020

Communism hit center stage with the Russian revolution, as first Vladimir Lenin and then Joseph Stalin remade Russia into the image created by Karl Marx. This didn’t affect us here in the USA much until World War II, when we were uncomfortable allies with Russia. Even then, there were those who saw communism as being the political savior for all mankind. But it wasn’t until World War II ended and the Cold War began, that we clearly saw the juxtaposition of capitalism versus communism in the world. Ever since then, there have been those in this county who have been pushing for us to become one more socialist country in the world. They hold up socialism as the shining light, where all people are treated equally. The government exists only to make sure that happens. During a SHTF situation, pain could become an annoyance for some, but unbearable for others. But even then, there is an elite in any communist government. Someone has to make the decisions about who gets what and those people always take care of themselves first. While socialism or even communism might be a great theory, it requires perfect people; and the world has always had a shortage of those. Yet there are those in our political system, who still proclaim socialism as the way to go. They make it sound better by calling it “democratic socialism.” But all it takes is a look at other countries who have gone socialist to see what that means; you can vote it in, but you can’t vote it out. Nevertheless, they try to make their political ideology look good by promising lots of freebies, not letting people know that they are going to have to pay exorbitant taxes to get those freebies. Rather, they claim that the rich, who don’t pay “their fair share” will pay them. Yet every time politicians talk about raising taxes on the rich, it is the middle class who feels the pinch, not the wealthy. To the low-information voter, especially the low-income, low-information voter, this all sounds good. They get free health care, free birth control, free education, free phones, free food and free income, and someone else has to pay for it. What could be better? Interestingly enough, over the last century, every socialist or communist government has gotten into power by proclaiming their concern for the poor. This gave them a large pool of low-information voters they could count on, so that they could get voted into office. They lied to their followers regularly, both about their own intentions and those of the opposing party. All that mattered was that they got into power. We could be seeing the same thing happening here. So, is the United States on its way to becoming a communist country, as some would like? As I look back over the last 50 years, I can see where we Americans have lost a lot of our freedoms. Every time the government expands, taking over another part of society, it does so at the cost of individual and state freedom. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about the IRS or the EPA; they get their power by stealing our freedom.  In that sense, you can say that we are already on the road towards communism and have been so for quite some time. A major step towards getting us there was Obama’s signature healthcare law. Never intended to work, the Unaffordable Healthcare Act was merely supposed to be a stepping stone towards a single-payer healthcare system, which would allow the federal government to take full control of 17.9% of our economy. Basically all that Obamacare has done for the country is raise the cost of health insurance and medical care. Yes, it did give some people who were previously denied health insurance coverage by insurance companies the legal right to buy insurance. Yet that could have been done at a much lower cost and without having to hire 30,000 new IRS agents, further bloating an already oppressive government agency, in the process. Even regulatory agencies like the Department of Education can be seen to be pushing our country towards socialism and then communism. These agencies do nothing more than take the power to make decisions out of the hands of US citizens and our local governments. One of their main ways of doing this is by controlling tax dollars. Money passed out to state and local governments by these agencies always comes with a price; one of toeing the line on some regulation or other. Part of the problem here is that once a government agency is established, it is all but impossible to shut it down. Take the EPA for example. It can be fairly argued that there was a need for the EPA, when it was founded by President Nixon in 1970. But since then, the majority of the work that the EPA originally did has been taken over by state governments, leaving the bloated federal bureaucracy in place to spend taxpayer money and create stifling regulations. The new House of Representatives seems to be making a greater push for the government to take over other parts of our economy as well. Some representatives have even gone so far as to float the idea of taking over major corporations, “for the good of the people.” Should this actually happen, it will be the sign that our country is actively being taken over by a communistic government. If we keep doing that, we’re going to find ourselves backed into a corner; actually several corners. The first corner will be the elimination of our First Amendment freedom of speech. The “PC Police” are already at work on this, using “political correctness” and “hate speech” to silence those who don’t agree with them. Totalitarian authority can’t handle disagreement, so they have to criminalize that disagreement in order to silence it. Everyone will be forced to toe the party line, saying what they’re supposed to say, as if they believe it. They won’t be satisfied with us being quiet, but rather insist that we say things their way. Once they’ve accomplished that, it will be easier for them to take the next big roadblock to communism out of the way, our Second Amendment rights. Totalitarian governments must always disarm the people, so that they can keep control. As Mao Zedong, the first communist leader of China said, “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” Without guns, what can any of us do to stop anything the government wants to do? The Second Amendment was given to us for this purpose. If those in power are going to get the power that they want, they have to take it out of our hands. That’s why the gun grabbers always attacks the AR-15 rifle, rather than pistols or shotguns. You can’t fight a war with pistols; you need rifles for that. As long as we are armed with rifles, we are a danger to the totalitarian communist government they crave. The real question boils down to what we are going to do when they come for our freedom of speech and our freedom to bear arms?

Expect Unemployment Rates To Hit ‘Great Depression’ Level, Warns Trump’s Economic Advisor

April 27, 2020 RT

White House senior advisor Kevin Hassett says US economy is in “grave situation” and the unemployment rate could be hitting the same numbers seen during the Great Depression due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “We’re going to be looking at an unemployment rate that approaches rates that I think we saw during the Great Depression,” Hassett told ABC’ ‘The Week’ on Sunday. Hassett called the economic state in the US a “grave situation” and “the biggest negative shock [the] economy has ever seen.” Hassett continued to paint a bleak picture when he compared jobless numbers today to those from the economic recession from 2007 to 2009, the worst in the US since the Great Depression. “Around 2008, we lost 8.7 million jobs and the whole thing. Right now, we’re losing that many jobs about every 10 days,” Hassett said. “And so … the economic lift for policymakers is an extraordinary one.”

Unemployment peaked during the Great Depression in 1933 when rates hit 25 percent. They have only topped 10 percent twice since then, once in 1982 and again in 2009. million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits during the Covid-19 pandemic, and it will likely top 27 million very soon once what could be millions of backlogged claims can be processed. The Congressional budget office forecasts the unemployment rate rising from 3.8 percent to 14 percent in the second quarter of 2020 and then 16 percent in quarter three and finally making its way down to 10.1 percent by the end of 2021.  Many economists, however, have predicted the unemployment rate hitting or passing 20 percent.

Despite the numbers, President Donald Trump has tried to paint a bright picture in his press briefings, predicting a comeback in the market, and therefore, with jobs, in the summer when state lockdown orders begin lifting. He predicted earlier this month the economy will “soar like a rocket ship” once the country is through the pandemic. On a global scale, the pandemic has also been compared to the Great Depression. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres recently said the Covid-19 crisis has become “a jobs pandemic. A humanitarian pandemic. A development pandemic” and predicted poverty and inequality to dramatically increase in the wake of the virus.

SELCO: This Is a Time of Massive Change and the Direction We’re Going Is Not Good

by Selco Begovic

Where are we now?

We are living in a world where fear controls us, or is trying to control us. If we take out all the facts and guesses about the severity of this illness, all that left is fear, and we are being driven to act by that fear.  Among all the fears (fear for health, job, security…) the fear of the unknown ( future) is the greatest and most dangerous. We as preppers should live and act by the premise of an unknown future. But when that premise goes worldwide and when common people start to fear from an unknown future, the whole picture can be different. This whole situation could go in many different directions, but the most probable direction where it will go is not nice. We might be living in times of massive changes. The individual is nothing In the name of health, safety, and security, an individual person becomes irrelevant. You or me alone are irrelevant if we are portrayed as, for example, a health hazard or risk for the community. Our rights basically cease to exist. If you are portrayed as, let’s say, a terrorist, your rights no longer exist. Not only will you lose your rights, but you will be publicly portrayed as a threat. You will be described in a way that your own neighbors will hunt you down like a rabid animal and then turn you in if you survive. Now, there are times and places and people who deserve to be hunted. There are real terrorists who deserve to be punished. But the point here is who decides who is terrorist or a health risk, and who controls the people who make those decisions. We are living in times when all that gets blurred together and rushed in the name of security. Or in this latest situation, in the name of public health. I have seen people get quarantined for 28 days in tents without proper food, hygiene, or anything similar just because someone told authorities they are suspicious and may have the virus. People being separated from their families based on an assumption made from some guy who does not know sh*t about medicine and then being put into those tents for weeks. And yes, it is unconstitutional of course, but nobody cares. Great leaders (on a higher level) Every hard time has (and had) leaders. Sometimes the whole system works in a way that leaders are not so important. Sometimes great figures emerged in hard times and carry the whole “spirit” of the nations in a good direction. And sometimes, “false leaders” emerge. They emerged many times trough the world history, “strong leaders” who led their nations through the hard times in a manipulative way. They channeled their feelings in order to achieve their own dreams or agendas. They turned their dream into what they thought was the “national dream”. Adolph Hitler led his nation (very simplified) from the times of national disaster, huge unemployment, public shame, and general disappointment to the moments where under his leadership, a majority of his country approved of the extermination of whole nations, by willingly doing it or closing their eyes to it. This particular example is way too big and complicated for me to explain it, but the point here is that you cannot underestimate the fact that desperate people can be led in wrong directions (by manipulation) in a pretty easy way.

Common folks can do a lot of unimaginable things when there is the right combination of a “real leader,” fear, and desperate times. Let’s hope we gonna have more real leaders then “real leaders”.

You (on a personal level) I advocate (just like always) that much more attention be paid to your own “local” level, or small circle, but do not get me wrong, it pays off to be aware of the bigger picture or in time, you might wake up one morning in a society that looks like something from an Orwell book.  On a local or personal level, there are a lot of changes that are noticeable among people in the last few months. It is more worrying actually that those changes are also noticeable among a lot of people who should be more ready because they are preppers or survivalists: A picture is better than a thousand words, so I am using it here. This latest situation came as a huge shock to many preppers too, and in reality, it should not be so huge a shock. It is something that you as a prepper have been preparing for over the course of many years. It was a huge shock for some of you probably for several reasons, and all those reasons are known and mentioned many times, but yes, it is different when you live it for real. The important thing to understand here, that all of this (no matter how hard it was, and still is) is nothing, compared to the situation that might come after this. We are only starting to realize a whole bunch of repercussions of all this (economically) worldwide, and nobody is even sure how hard it might be, and where it can lead. Remember these 5 things. What I would like to emphasize here, in this article (again) are the things that might become very important in the next period:

The system is fragile, and usually corrupt. It takes care first for itself. Do not blindly trust it. I’m not saying the system is necessarily your enemy, but I am saying do not trust it. (See this article about the system.)

It is time to be self-sufficient, self-reliant, and resilient as much as it is possible.

It is now time more than ever to be quiet about what you prep, how you prep, and where. Publicly be like the majority people around you – scared, more or less, and unsure

Make connections, know people, find like-minded folks that you may lean on once if the situation deteriorates more.

Do not blindly trust the media. Try to find and follow your own sources of information. (See this article for more about the media.)

Food supply chain is breaking," Tyson Foods chairman warns

Kate Gibson 1 day ago

Meat lines could be in the country's future as the coronavirus wreaks havoc on the industry, prompting the closures or curtailing of operations at pork, beef and poultry processing plants across the country. Tyson Foods Chairman John H. Tyson spelled it out in full-page newspaper advertisements, stating: "The food supply chain is breaking." The executive's warning came days after Tyson shut down its large pork processing plant in Waterloo, Iowa, after multiple employees tested positive for COVID-19. The closure is among dozens involving major companies, with a Smithfield Foods pork plant in South Dakota also out of commission. JBS USA temporarily shut its meatpacking plant in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Sunday after health officials traced at least 189 positive cases to the facility last week. As of April 27 there have been at least 4,135 reported positive cases tied to meatpacking facilities at 75 plants in 25 states and at least 18 reported worker deaths at nine plants in nine states, according to the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting. About a quarter of the country's U.S. pork production and 10% of its beef output has now been shuttered, according to the United Food & Commercial Workers, the union that represents 250,000 meatpacking and poultry plant worker. "As pork, beef and chicken plants are being forced to close, even for short periods of time, millions of pounds of meat will disappear from the supply chain," Chairman Tyson wrote in a letter published Sunday as an advertisement in newspapers including the New York Times. "As a result, there will be limited supply of our products available in grocery stores until we are able to reopen our facilities that are currently closed." Food waste is also part of the equation, according to the Arkansas-based Tyson, among the country's biggest meat producers. "Farmers across the nation simply will not have anywhere to sell their livestock to be processed, when they could have fed the nation," the executive wrote. "Millions of animals —chickens, pigs and cattle— will be depopulated because of the closure of our processing facilities," he added. " a local poultry trade group said inThe food supply chain is breaking." The word "depopulated" — meaning humanely killed — is already in play on several major farms in Delaware and Maryland, where two million chickens will be depopulated due to reduced employee attendance at nearby Delmarva Poultry Industry plants, a statement. With about 1,800 members in Delaware and on the Maryland and Virginia Eastern Shore, the Delmarva chicken industry last year produced more than 600 million chickens values at about $3.5 billion.

The Digital Revolution: Unlimited Ability to Spy and Control Populations. The Creation of a Police State Dystopia

Jack Metir technology April 27, 2020 3 Minutes

Many have expressed concerns that coronavirus will be used, as 9/11 and the hoax “war on terror” were, to further expand the American police state dystopia. But we were doomed by the digital revolution to a controlled existence regardless of 9/11 and Covid-19. The digital revolution provides government and corporations with unlimited and unaccountable ability to spy and control populations. Every word, deed, and movement of people can be tracked and a “social credit” dossier built for them. China already has such a control system in place. Those whose profiles are outside acceptable parameters are unable to function in normal society, being blocked from passports, driving licenses, employment, and activities reserved to those with acceptable social credit scores.

Technology is now available that permits videos to be created of people speaking words that they never spoke. These can be used to ruin people on social media and to convict them falsely in trials. Privacy no longer exists despite endless “privacy notices,” and people have no control over their persona. This presentation PROOVES WITHOUT DOUBT that America is in for a major fight that will put you and your family in the firing line, literally… So make sure you watch this presentation while it’s still online… Even a person’s unspoken thoughts are under assault by mind-reading technologies. Once money has been reduced to digital money, a person’s access to his funds can be cut off at any time. Financial independence ceases to exist for those who don’t comply. The outcome of the digital revolution is completely different from the naive belief that the Internet opened up communicative freedom that would ensure liberty. What a joke this belief turned out to be. The tech and social media firms themselves engage in censorship of explanations, called “conspiracy theories,” that differ from official or permissible explanations or use words found “offensive” by privileged groups. Truth itself has become a “conspiracy theory.” Factual history is unacceptable to Identity Politics and is being replaced by fake history, such as the New York Times’ 1619 Project. It is certainly true that indoctrination is part of enculturation, and every age has had to struggle for truth. There have always been interests whose agendas are served by falsehood. But for those determined, it was possible to challenge and to expose the falsehoods. That possibility is what is extirpated by the digital revolution.  The technology is already in advance of that portrayed in George Orwell’s dystopia, 1984. We await the coalescing of elite interests in a leadership agenda. All the tools Big Brother needs await his arrival.  The young born into the digital revoluton know no different. They are so taken with their electronic gadgets and indispensable apps and so content in their self-isolation in virtual reality that liberty means the ability to push buttons to call up images and entertainment. Liberty will not have to be taken from them. It has already left them. Indeed, they never knew it or its requirements. The well-rewarded techies who created the instruments of oppression are proud of their contribution to the creation of a police state dystopia. These preening fools are the handmaidens of the police state. Years ago I read a science fiction short story about a father and mother who were concerned about their son as the age of testing approached. They were members of a people that had somehow recovered from an enslaving technology. To prevent a reoccurence, testing of the young was instituted to weed out for extermination those whose intelligence and aptitude could bring back technological tyranny. In their society, not all forms of human creativity were permissible. A society so full of hubris that it played God was unacceptable. Is starting to feel like it’s every man for himself, Is possible that right now, a global crisis is upon us, Without even knowing… And the virus may not be the biggest threat, but the crisis that follows, Everyday goods that keep us alive will be gone, I’m talking, food, fresh water, medicine, clothes, fuel…

The Covid-19 Coup: Anti-America Socialists Are Happy To Keep America Locked Down To Institute Unconstitutional Tyranny

By John C. Velisek, US Navy, Retired - All News Pipeline II Sunday, April 26, 2020

Since the start of this unconstitutional lockdown, Nancy Pelosi and 'her band of anti-American socialists' have done all they could to keep the small businesses in our country under lock and key. In her San Francisco neighborhood with her beloved ice cream and still receiving all her pay from the taxpayers, she ignores the day to day anxiety and pain that the middle class is feeling. On February 28th, at a highly attended rally in South Carolina, President Trump said that the Democrat progressive socialists misinformation campaign would inundate the American Public with criticism of the President's response to the Chinese virus. He called this criticism a Hoax. Of course, the progressive socialists in Congress and the media quickly started the lie that President Trump called the epidemic a hoax, which he did not. Pelosi and her group of progressive socialists use this talking point as a distraction. The senile alcoholic Pelosi pontificates about President Trump refusing to accept the facts. This is the same Pelosi that was in Chinatown on February 24th, stating in her faux regal manner that everything was excellent, and invited everyone to come to Chinatown and celebrate. At the same time, she also proclaimed that the Defense Production Act was not used quickly enough to protect workers. Never does she mention that the first tests put out by the CDC were contaminated, a setback in the containment. Nor did she say that the numbers that were being used pertaining to the number of the fatalities were over six times higher than what was taking place. They were intentionally high so that those clamoring for national lockdown would have the impetus to push forward with shutting down our economy. They knew if the economy faced a crash because of the overstated fatalities forcing a lockdown as we are going through now would be used by the progressive socialists and media to blame Trump. She talks of the misrepresentation and falsehoods of President Trump, setting the party line for the progressive socialists and sycophantic press and, like all the others, gives no specific examples. They think if they continue to push this lie, the American people will soon start to accept it.

(PLEASE HELP SUPPORT ANP: With Independent Media being censored on almost every internet platform, reader donations are what keeps websites like ANP up and running. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Susan & Stefan) The first step in the attempt to stabilize the economy and country was the money to assist small businesses, which Pelosi tried to hold up to include such things as funding for Planned Parenthood, the Green New debacle, and sanctuary cities. All were swept away in the original bill. She held up the bill, costing our country even more jobs. It has been made quite clear from the beginning that the progressive
