"The Rockefellers and their allies have, for at least fifty years, been carefully following a plan to use their economic power to gain political control of first America, and then the rest of the world. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes, I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." -- Congressman Larry P. McDonald, November 1975, from the introduction to a book titled The Rockefeller File.

Drought In Taiwan Just Turned The Semi Shortage "Crisis" To "Critical"

Taiwan is suffering the "island's worst drought in decades", according to Nikkei. And this is terrible news for semiconductor manufacturers, who are being forced to make cuts on water usage while at the same time desperately trying to scramble and play catch-up with a drought of their own.

Taiwan is now planning to "further tighten water use in several cities that are home to a cluster of important manufacturers," including plants in Taoyuan, Taichung, Hsinchu and Miaoli. They are going to be asked to cut consumption by up to 11%. Chiayi and Tainan, where Taiwan Semiconductor is based, will be asked to take a 7% cut.

All of these cuts come on top of another 7% cut already put into effect last month.

McMaken: Why Dominion's Defamation Lawsuits Are Garbage

Behind all of this is the usual logic of a defamation lawsuit. Dominion’s owners are concerned that Lindell, Giuliani, and Powell have cost the company money by saying things that could potentially hurt Dominion financially.

It’s entirely possible that Dominion may have a case, at least legally speaking. Dominion is nominally a private company. But will need to prove the usual elements of a defamation suit, namely, that Lindell et al. made false statements about Dominion and that they knew these statements were false. Dominion must also show it suffered damages.

Fortunately, this is very difficult to do in American courts. This is especially true for government officials and “public figures” of any kind. In those cases, a plaintiff must also prove that the defamation was committed with malicious intent and recklessness.

This presents a very high legal standard to meet. And rightly so.

What the latest Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine data really means

Some have raised concerns that one of Johnson & Johnson's previously reported vaccine data points -- a 66% global efficacy in preventing moderately symptomatic disease -- doesn't seem as impressive as figures reported by Pfizer and Moderna, which exceeded 90% efficacy at preventing symptomatic COVID-19. But experts are quick to note that it may not be the best comparison: The Pfizer and Moderna clinical trials didn't take into account new variants and still had 100% effectiveness against hospitalizations and deaths.

"This is a very different trial than the trials that were done last fall," said Dr. Dan Barouch, director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and a lead researcher for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. "We live in a much more complicated pandemic today."

Chicago Has Become A Rotting, Decaying, Crime-Ridden Hellhole – And The Rest Of America Will Soon Follow

I don’t know why anyone would want to live in Chicago at this point.  According to the latest estimate that I could find, “over 117,000 gang members” currently live in the city, and there is so much violence that it regularly makes headlines all over the globe.  Some of the wealthy areas of Chicago still look nice, but many communities have been transformed into something straight out of a war zone.  Large churches, hospitals and factories that were once so beautiful are now rotting and decaying all over the city, and a vibrant open air drug market scares customers away from local businesses.  Sadly, the truth is that the entire country is going down the exact same path that Chicago has gone.

Who Owns Your Face?

The whole purpose of the Bill of Rights is to keep the government off the people’s backs, as Justice William O. Douglas famously wrote. He could have written “faces.” There are areas of human behavior that are none of the government’s business. Facial appearance — because we own our faces and can exclude all others, even the government, from them — is foremost among them. -- History teaches that governments crave control and resist restraint. They negate liberty. Yet, according to the Declaration of Independence, the reason we have government is not to tell us how to live but to protect our freedoms. How well has that worked?

Dinosaurs WERE wiped out by an asteroid: Dust discovered in the Chicxulub crater confirms that a deadly space rock was to blame for the animals' demise 66 million years ago

Asteroid dust found beneath an impact crater confirms a leading theory that it was a space rock that killed the dinosaurs and 75% of life on Earth 66 million years ago.

Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin studied 900 metres of rock core samples from below the seafloor under the Chicxulub crater in the Gulf of Mexico.

They found evidence of asteroid dust within the samples, a discovery the team say is the 'final proof' dinosaurs were wiped out by a city sized space rock.

You can control an armed Spot robot online, and Boston Dynamics is not happy

Boston Dynamics' lineup of robots have been taking turns wowing us with their stunts and fueling our nightmares (thanks in no small part to that Black Mirror episode). Now an artsy startup has finally gone ahead and combined the light and dark sides of the company's robotic dog, Spot, into a chaotic online event.

Starting at 10 a.m. PT Wednesday, random visitors to a website will be able to control a Spot robot equipped with a paintball gun as it ransacks an art gallery set up for the purpose.

Spot's Rampage is the latest effort from MSCHF Product Studio, which is the same outfit that re-created episodes of The Office entirely in Slack and sells a cap for your Alexa device that jams its microphone.

To participate, you'll need to download the MSCHF App and visit the Spot's Rampage website where the chaos will be livestreamed. Every two minutes, control of Spot via the app will be passed to a random viewer on the website.

These are the most common ways hackers will attack your computer

Computer security has dominated tech news headlines in recent weeks, with reports of one hack and data breach after another as hackers get increasingly brazen and aggressive when it comes to different ways of stealing your information.

We’ve noted in previous posts some of the different steps you can take to make yourself less of a target in the next data breach, but in the meantime, researchers from the cybersecurity company Proofpoint have prepared a report that looks at some of the most common steps hackers take in order to break into your PC. They include phishing emails, whereby hackers trick users into opening messages and interacting with them in a way that triggers a malicious action. Indeed, the Proofpoint researchers warn in their report, for those of you not aware, that “email is by far the biggest channel for cyber attacks. We saw a wide range of email attack techniques in the fourth quarter, but almost all of them included some form of social engineering.”

Germans turn to hunting to 'ethically' source food

With her dreadlocks and nose piercing, Shanna Reis doesn't exactly look the part of the camouflage-clad hunter tracking game in the forest.

But the 28-year-old represents a new German generation of enthusiasts concerned about where they get their meat, especially as home cooking sees a resurgence during the pandemic.

Reis was a practising vegetarian for a decade before returning meat to her plate once she got her hunting licence five years ago.

But the only kind that passes her lips these days is fresh game, preferably specimens she's killed and prepared herself.

"It's important to me to know where the meat I eat comes from," she said on the outskirts of her western village Aspisheim near the River Rhine, rifle slung over a shoulder and accompanied by one of her three dogs.

Pennsylvania Poll Watchers Testified About Election Fraud and Irregularities in 2020 Election – Then AG Special Agents Harassed Them and Now They’re Being Sued

Leah Hoopes and Gregory Stenstrom were GOP poll watchers in Chester Pennsylvania during the 2020 election.

The far left officials running the elections forced the GOP poll watchers into a small pen where they could not witness the counting of ballots. This was a common tactic used in swing states by far left officials during the 2020 election. GOP poll watchers were abused and prevented from doing their job.

This resulted in massive chain of custody issues across the US — and always hampering Republican poll watchers, never the other way around. This is one tactic Democrats used to cheat and steal the election.

Leah Hoopes later told her story to Rob Schmitt on Newsmax TV.

After Leah Hoopes and Gregory Stenstrom testified in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, special agents from the state Attorney General’s office showed up at their door to harass them.

Netanyahu: Israel will prevent a nuclear Iran whether or not a deal is in place

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday vowed Israel would prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, regardless of whether a multilateral accord is in place to prevent Tehran from doing so.

The comments came hours after Iranian state TV reported that the Islamic Republic has officially begun restricting international inspections of its nuclear facilities.

“On the eve of the Purim holiday, I say to those who seek to harm us — Iran and its proxies in the Middle East: 2,500 years ago, another Persian tyrant tried to destroy the Jewish people and just as he failed then – you too will fail,” Netanyahu said at a memorial ceremony in the northern town of Tel Hai, referencing the Purim story.

Billionaire Ackman Buys "Insurance Against Disaster" As Inflation 'Event Risk' Fears Build

Having made many headlines earlier in the year with his rightly apocalyptic perspective on the pandemic, billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman pocketed a tidy $2.6 billion in profits on a massive (credit) hedge he placed amid stock market complacency ahead of its March collapse.

On March 23rd, we completed the exit of our hedges generating proceeds of $2.6 billion for the Pershing Square funds ($2.1 billion for PSH), compared with premiums paid and commissions totaling $27 million, which offset the mark-to-market losses in our equity portfolio. Our hedges were in the form of purchases of credit protection on various global investment grade and high yield credit indices. Because we were able to purchase these instruments at near-all-time tight levels of credit spreads, the risk of loss from this investment was minimal at the time of purchase.

Top US lawmaker links Palestinians to antisemitism and hate crimes

Congressman Gregory Meeks, a key Democrat, linked Palestinians to the rise of global bigotry, and said he would address the upsurge of racism and hate crimes when he talks to Palestinian leaders.

Meeks, who serves as the chair of the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee, lavished praise on Israel at a Brookings Institution virtual conference on Wednesday, and vowed to bolster America's "social, economic and political ties" with its Middle Eastern ally.

"I know how important Israel is to us as a partner, and I am committed to that partnership," Meeks said.

When addressing a question about resuming humanitarian aid to the Palestinians, Meeks spoke vaguely about providing assistance to those who need it and instead highlighted his strong support for Israel and the need to combat antisemitism.

The Israeli Mutant, the IDF prophecy and the Reality on the Ground

As of writing this article, 75.4% of Israel’s new Covid-19 cases are under 39. Only 5.5% were over 60. Only 59.9% of critical patients are over 60 years old. 40% are under 60. The country has also detected a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases amongst pregnant women. Many are in hospital, with 8 currently in critical condition.

In Israel, cases in new-born Covid-19 have seen a significant 1300% spike (from 400 cases in under two-year-olds on November 20 to 5,800 in February 2021).

Earth Is Cooling As Radical Greens Continue To Fight Global Warming

Winter storms are wreaking havoc in central and southern States. The climate news has turned catastrophic. People are angry; however, the federal government is too busy with its delusional psychosis over global warming and the COVID pandemic.

People don’t realize how bad and multifaceted the situation is. We have full-scale blackouts in Mexico, millions of Americans still in the dark with no power and heat, and the biggest outage in American oil and gas history. A loss on this scale is already generating an energy crisis, meaning each and everyone one of us will be paying more for energy.

The death count is climbing, with 20 deaths now reported, and the count is not over yet, and all scientists can say is that global warming caused by humans is partly responsible for making the cold longer and more frequent; that is what the press says, and we are supposed to believe every word of it.

Vaccine Passport Push Exposes the Bullying Authoritarians in Our Midst

Twelve months ago it would have been unthinkable that any public figure would be suggesting that people would need to show their vaccination records before entering a shop, or any public place, but that’s where we are in Britain today.

Just when you thought Covid-authoritarianism (and authoritarianism is actually putting it mildly), couldn’t get any worse, it just did.

This week we’ve seen a number of politicians and high-profile media figures promote the idea of mandatory vaccine passports. And not just for international travel. On Sunday, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who, I kid yet not, once wrote a book entitled 'The Assault on Liberty', refused to rule out vaccine passports to allow entry to supermarkets and pubs. 'It is under consideration' he said.

In the latest Gallup survey, 1 in 6 of those aged 18-23 “consider themselves to be something other than heterosexual,” or LGBT.

Just under 16% said they were LGBT, and 78.9% said they were “straight/heterosexual” in the new survey.

By comparison, 2% of baby boomers consider themselves lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. It’s 3.8% for Generation X and 9.1% for millennials.

Democrats Accept 2 of 286 Amendments Sought by Republicans for $1.9 Trillion COVID-19 Stimulus Bill

Republicans have criticized Democrats for continuing to push their pandemic stimulus package while accepting little to no Republican input. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Wednesday out of 286 amendments proposed by Republicans for the $1.9 trillion spending package, only two were accepted.

“Republicans offered 286 amendments to President Biden’s massive $1.9 TRILLION spending blowout. Democrats accepted 2 of them. So much for Biden’s calls for ‘unity,'” McCarthy said in a statement.

On Feb. 19, Democrats unveiled the full text of a 591-page bill (pdf) titled the “American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.”

House Republicans held a press conference on Wednesday in which they voiced their opposition to the Democrats’ “rescue” package that includes many items that have little to do with pandemic relief.

Are Black Women Smarter Than Black Men? Results from PIAAC and AFQT

In response to a reader’s question about differences in average cognitive test scores between blacks and whites, commenter Maven points us toward the PIAAC test of adults. PIAAC is done by the OECD who also do the famous international PISA test of 15-year-olds.

PIAAC in 2017 found that men average very slightly better than females overall in the various ethnicities, with men having an advantage in math, while literacy results are mixed. The standard deviation within each race/sex/subject group is somewhere around 50 points, so the differences between the sexes are small.

Equity Is a Just a Nice Way of Saying "White People Last": Black, Hispanic Seniors in Virginia Prioritized Over White Octogenarians

Point of fact: this writer is 100 percent against the Covid-19 vaccination (if you want to get it, by all means go ahead) and believes people should be living their lives without any fear of COVID-19 and the entire nation should be opened up. Dave Portnoy is a hero for his actions to help out small businesses ravaged by the asinine shutdown and criminal charges should be filed against every elected official advocating continued shutdowns.

It brings a smile to my face seeing other people not wearing masks in defiance of the tyranny enacted by people believing our nation should shutdown because of a disease almost exclusively impacting the elderly and those with co-morbidities.

We will look back with intense animosity on those who advocated this insanity and cost people a year of their life (hurting families in the process), along with the incalculable opportunity costs gone forever because of an extreme overreaction to a virus primarily impacting those 60 years-old or greater.

Biden’s Journey: Change Is Imperceptible

Biden has been a major disappointment for those who hoped that he’d change course regarding America’s pathological involvement in overseas conflicts.

The new White House Team has been in place for more than a month and it is perhaps time to consider where it is going with America’s fractured foreign policy. To be sure, when a new administration brings in a bunch of “old hands” who made their bones by attacking Syria and Libya while also assassinating American citizens by drone one might hope that those mistakes might have served as valuable “lessons learned.” Or maybe not, since no one in the Democratic Party ever mentions the Libya fiasco and President Joe Biden has already made it clear that Syria will continue to be targeted with sanctions as well as with American soldiers based on its soil. And no one will be leaving Afghanistan any time soon. The Biden team will only let up when Afghanistan is “secure” and there is regime change in Damascus.

New York Times Tells Readers: Thinking Is Dangerous, Just Believe Us

The NY Times advises you not to think. Thinking requires using your unreliable brain and will lead you into conspiracy theories. Just believe whatever the NY Times tells you and you will have an approved source of information. https://www.rt.com/op-ed/516095-nytimes-critical-thinking-wrongthink-l...

The NY Times regards its own propaganda as truth. You remember the “violent resurrection at the Capitol,” in which Trump supporters were responsible for 5 deaths? One of the alleged deaths was Capitol Hill policeman Brian Sicknick, who was allegedly beat to death with a fire extinguisher. Well, here are the facts according to Sicknick’s mother and brother:

“The mother of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick said her son was not beaten with a fire extinguisher by a mob on Jan. 6, saying he likely suffered a stroke instead—refuting reports from the New York Times and other outlets claiming otherwise. ‘He wasn’t hit on the head, no. We think he had a stroke.’”

House Homeland Security Committee Member Requests State Department Designate Proud Boys and Oathkeepers As Terror Groups

A House Homeland Security Committee member today sent Secretary of State Anthony Blinken a letter calling for the immediate designation of the Proud Boys and Oathkeepers as international terrorist groups.

The author of the letter is Josh Gottheimer, a Jewish congressman from New Jersey. In the request, he cites a Jewish activist group, the Anti-Defamation League, along with the Southern Poverty Law Center, as main authorities for characterizing Proud Boys as a “white supremacist” group looking to engage in political violence domestically and globally.

If the State Department adheres to Gottheimer’s recommendations, membership and financial transactions for either group will qualify as federal crimes. Being listed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) also unlocks extra surveillance powers for intelligence services to utilize.

A State of Chaos:  Biden’s Rule by Authoritarian Decree

by Congressman Paul Gosar

Since being installed on January 20th, Mr. Biden has ruthlessly governed by executive order, signing a flurry of directives, tripling the number of executive orders his predecessors had at this same point in their presidencies. One of the more egregious executive orders is Biden’s reckless rollback of a number of common-sense immigration reforms enacted under the prudent path established by the Trump Administration. All nations protect their sovereignty and borders, and President Trump enacted common sense reforms to ensure the integrity of our borders and the safety of the people. Unfortunately, Biden has reverted to the failed Obama policies of open borders—open for crime, open for drugs, open for human trafficking and open to harm every town in America.

President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address Suddenly Appears to Be ‘Off’ — For Now

President Joe Biden was expected to have given his first State of the Union address by now.

Although the mainstream press is issuing “fact checks” to dispute the claim Biden was supposed to have had one by February 20th, the AP earlier reported that he was supposed to have had one by… *checks calendar*… yesterday.

“US President Joe Biden is expected to deliver the annual State of the Union address on 23 February 2021 (date is still to be confirmed),” the Associated Press reported.

It is indisputable that the president can have the SOTU address whenever he or she wants. Or none at all, like Jimmy Carter chose in 1977. Or even submitted in writing, as the same president did in 1981.

Yes, the rushed-to-market Covid “spike protein” vaccine means an unpredictable, genetically engineered and mutated virus fragment is being injected into your blood

Have no doubts, the Covid vaccine series is highly experimental, dangerous and unprecedented. This viral vector approach tricks your cells like a Trojan horse to let recombinant DNA inside, where permanent damage is done and can never be undone.

You are NOT ‘anti-science’ to reject this. You are not ‘anti-vax’ if you do not want this. You are not a conspiracy theorist to deny genetically mutated viruses from not only entering your body through an invasive, unnatural way, but to deny mRNA technology from tricking your immune system into accepting new DNA restructuring.

If you’ve been vaccinated with a Covid vaccine, then your body is now creating foreign proteins, and that creation is going unregulated, unchecked, and can be manipulated by more vaccines. This is not GMO scaremongering. It’s common sense and science. It’s the science the vaccine manufacturers never explain in true terms.

The calamity created by Covid-19 is no exception. The economic fallout from that pandemic has tested the nation’s social safety net as never before.

Between February and May 2020, the number of unemployed workers soared more than threefold — from 6.2 million to 20.5 million. The jobless rate spiked in a similar fashion from 3.8% to 13.0%. In late March, weekly unemployment claims reached 6.9 million, obliterating the previous record of 695,000, set in October 1982. Within three months, the pandemic-produced slump proved far worse than the three-year Great Recession of 2007-2009.

Is Switzerland Sliding into Dictatorship? Social Coercion, Privileges to Those Who Accept the Covid Vaccine

A secret paper from the Swiss Federal Council (Swiss Executive) was leaked to the Swiss Newspaper “Der Blick” divulging that the Federal Council is considering granting owners of restaurants, theatres, cinemas, and more, as well as private event organizers, the right to allow access to those people only, who have had their corona virus shots.

In addition to the Blick, Swiss Radio and Television (SRG) repeated this news item in the morning of 23 February. SRG, the Swiss fear-inducing propaganda broadcasting system, also linked so-called “corona deniers” to alleged “anti-Semitism”, referring to an article in Swissinfo, “Covid Pandemic Fans Flames of anti-Semitism in Switzerland”. Anti-Semitism has often been used to intimidate free opinions that run counter the official narrative.

Machinery of Death: When the Government Acts as Judge, Jury and Executioner

“Police fail to grasp that they are public servants for peace. They should provide a civil service, to enforce the laws equally, without bias and with discretion. They must understand that they do not have immunity or special privileges and — most importantly — are just responsible for apprehending suspects, and should not act as judge, jury and executioner, which too many of them truly believe themselves to be.”—Frank Serpico, former police detective who exposed corruption within the NYPD

The government should not be in the business of killing its citizens.

Nevertheless, the U.S. government continues to act as judge, jury and executioner over a populace that have been pre-judged and found guilty, stripped of their rights, and left to suffer at the hands of government agents trained to respond with the utmost degree of violence.

That the death penalty was recently abolished in Virginia is just the tip of the iceberg.

President Biden Says the Experimental Coronavirus Vaccines Are Safe. The Vaccines’ Fact Sheets Say Something Very Different.

Via a Monday Twitter post, President Joe Biden made an unqualified assertion that the experimental coronavirus vaccines, which are not even vaccines under the normal meaning of vaccines, the United States government is encouraging Americans to take are “safe” for everyone. However, taking a look through the fact sheets for recipients and caregivers regarding the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna experimental coronavirus vaccines, available at the website of the US government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you find a very different representation.

By Putting Big Pharma’s Patents before Patients, Doctors Will Further Erode Trust in Experts

I have spent the past several years on my blog trying to highlight one thing above all others: that the institutions we were raised to regard as authoritative are undeserving of our blind trust.

It is not just that expert institutions have been captured wholesale by corporate elites over the past 40 years and that, as a result, knowledge, experience and expertise have been sidelined in favour of elite interests – though that is undoubtedly true. The problem runs deeper: these institutions were rarely as competent or as authoritative as we fondly remember them being. They always served elite interests.

What has changed most are our perceptions of institutions that were once beloved or trusted. It is we who have changed more than the institutions. That is because we now have far more sources – good and bad alike – than ever before against which we can judge the assertions of those who claim to speak with authority.

What Planet Is NATO Living On?

The February meeting of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Defense Ministers, the first since President Biden took power, revealed an antiquated, 75-year-old alliance that, despite its military failures in Afghanistan and Libya, is now turning its military madness toward two more formidable, nuclear-armed enemies: Russia and China.

This theme was emphasized by U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin in a Washington Post op-ed in advance of the NATO meeting, insisting that “aggressive and coercive behaviors from emboldened strategic competitors such as China and Russia reinforce our belief in collective security.”

Using Russia and China to justify more Western military build-up is a key element in the alliance’s new “Strategic Concept,” called NATO 2030: United For a New Era, which is intended to define its role in the world for the next ten years.
