The CoVaxx-19 Scorecard: Bleeding, Blood-Clots and the Whole Nine Yards

“We have enough evidence now to see a clear correlation with increased Covid deaths and the vaccine campaigns. This is not a coincidence. It is an unfortunate unintended effect of the vaccines. We must not turn a blind eye and pretend this is not occurring. We must halt all Covid vaccine administration immediately, before we create a true pandemic that we cannot reign in…” Dr. Janci Lindsay, Ph.D.

Why would anyone allow himself to be injected with a substance for which the long-term adverse effects are completely unknown?

It’s extremely dangerous. And, yet, millions of people around the world have already been inoculated with a hybrid concoction that was not approved by the FDA, did not meet the same rigorous standards for safety as previous vaccines, and which is vastly more lethal than any vaccine in modern times.

Why? Why are so many people submitting to this experiment?

It’s a mystery, isn’t it?

Pictures of a Ukrainian Dream

The great Andrei Martyanov has remarked that Blinken “told Kiev behind the scenes to ‘dial it down’, amidst the fluffy tropes about US concern for Ukraine’s ‘sovereignty’ and ‘security’”.

Well, looks like there was way more than fluffy tropes.

Leaked info on the closed-door meeting between Blinken and Comedian-in-Charge Zelensky is no less than incandescent. Blinken seemed to have read a no holds barred riot act.

Here are the guidelines. All Ukrainian state corporations must be controlled by the proverbial “foreign interests”. So board majorities must be either foreign or 5th columnists. The entire anti-corruption vertical drive must also be foreign-controlled. Same for the judicial system.

Andriy Kobolyev – an American asset – must be reinstated as head of Naftogaz. Zelensky moved mountains to get rid of Kobolyev.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Everything we understand, scientifically, has a life cycle; galaxies; stars; planets.... and governmental systems.

Looks like the Ukrainian government, absolutely mired in gross, historic, and horrific corruption, is perhaps coming to the end of its current geopolitical history, and a new government may well take its place.

I would like to hope that whatever replaces it, will truly represent the needs, concerns, and hopes of the Ukrainian people far better than does its current collection of saptraps, scraping and bowing to the "foreign interests" which control it, until the moment it implodes.

Urgent: D.C. Parents, Take Action to Protect Children from Being Vaccinated Without Parental Consent

Children’s Health Defense and Parental Rights Foundation are preparing to jointly file a lawsuit challenging the D.C. Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act of 2020 as unconstitutional.

The recently enacted law allows children 11 and older to receive vaccinations at school without the knowledge or consent of a parent. Under the new law, even if the parent has previously submitted a written religious exemption statement, school officials may secretly administer vaccines to the child against the parents’ written directive.

Immediate legal action is necessary to protect children and parental rights, especially now that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in children ages 12 and older.

‘Vaccine Secrets’: What Parents Should Know Before They Vaccinate Their Kids

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So parents in DC now have zero power to prevent their kids from being vaccinated, even if they have questions about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine in question?!?

I have a four letter word for people with these concerns; that word is, MOVE; VOTE WITH YOUR FEET.

I am NOT an anti-vaxxer; Mike and I had the J & J jab, because I have a 91 year old mom in an assisted living facility, and I knew it was a matter of time before I could not see her, without having that done; I have never, in 72 years on this planet, felt so medically coerced in my life, as in that moment.

But to so blatently demand that the state will make all decisions for a child's welfare, rather than a child's parents being able to make those decisions is absolutely fascist in its nature, and must peacefully and responsibly opposed by caring parents.

Unanswered Questions Regarding Covid Vaccine Injuries and Reported Deaths: 64 Days and Counting — Why Won’t the CDC Answer Our Questions?

The Defender first reached out to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on March 8 with a list of questions about COVID vaccine injury reports in VAERS, including ongoing investigations into reported deaths. Our questions remain unanswered.

Since Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccines received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), The Defender has tracked post-vaccine injuries reported by healthcare workers and vaccine recipients to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

We’ve also covered media reports of deaths and injuries among people recently vaccinated for COVID.

The latest VAERS data show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 30, a total of 157,277 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 3,837 deaths and 16,014 serious injuries following vaccination with Pfizer, Moderna and J&J vaccines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I had the J & J jab, before we knew about its capacity to create blood clots.

Because Phase 3 testing was allowed to be scrapped, in order to "roll out" these "MRNA Experimental therapies" at warp speed, every vaccinated American in this country, has been made a "lab rat", who may ultimately deal with potential serious unknown consequences.

But please remember; the only people to whom heads of Big Pharma are responsible... are their shareholders, who have been doing quite wonderfully, thanks to the incredible profits created by these "medications"; and of course, those who died, or have been severely injured by vaccines, or "alleged vaccines" have utterly no recourse in American law, thanks to US legislation which holds them harmless and indemnifies them against potential prosecution.

Israel-Palestine: US sends diplomat to push for 'de-escalation'

Secretary of State Antony Blinken says he is sending undersecretary Hady Amr to the region, while reiterating support for Israel.

The US has announced that senior diplomat Hady Amr will be sent to the Middle East with the aim of de-escalating the violence in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken also reiterated on Wednesday Washington's support for what he called "Israel's legitimate right to defend itself".

"We're deeply concerned about what we're seeing there. Images that came out overnight are harrowing, and the loss of any civilian life is a tragedy," Blinken said.

"I've asked Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Hady Amr to go to the region immediately to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. He will bring to bear his decades of experience, and in particular, he will urge on my behalf and on behalf of President Biden de-escalation of violence."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Antony Blinken, can you possibly please stop lying about what is going on, for one brief, shining moment, sir!?

Do you appreciate, for one millisecond, the deep, non-biodegradable pond scum in which Netanyahu finds himself, at this moment in Israel's history?!? Enmeshed with corruption scandals that will not go away?!?

Are you so geopolitically tone deaf and blind, that you not consider the possibility that the eviction of Palestinian families from homes in which they have lived in generations, coupled with the Israeli outrages at the Al Aqsa Mosque, were timed specifically to provoke a Palestinian reaction that would create this situation, which would make the removal of Netanyahu from office, a practical impossibility?!?

The indesputable fact here is, Netanyahu is desperate to hang on to power, no matter how many Palestinians and Israelis get hurt or killed; that, sir, is the reality here.

In Pictures: Global protests in solidarity with Palestinians

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's difficulty right now, is that it is singularly incapable of controlling the narrative, because of the presence of cell cameras, the net, and tweets to document what is happening.

My deep concern right now, is that Israel will pull a "false flag", to be blamed on Iran, and off we go.... to a new world war.

What led to the most recent Israel-Palestine escalation?

Protests over the expulsion of Palestinian families and Israeli raids on Al-Aqsa Mosque compound preceded Israel’s heavy bombardment of Gaza.

Days of heavy bombardment on the Gaza Strip intensified on Wednesday, with Israeli fighter jets bombing sites belonging to Palestinian armed groups, as well as police buildings and apartment blocks.

Since the offensive began late on Monday, Gaza’s health ministry says at least 53 people have been killed, including 14 children. More than 300 others have been wounded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Newton made the observation: "To every action, there is an equal, and opposite, reaction."

The eviction of Palestinian families, coupled with the massive repressions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, were engineered to create precisely the situation in which the state of Israel finds itself, and now, it is playing "the victim"?!?

Please; thoughtful, peaceful people around the world have had a bellyfull of this, and want it stopped!! These actions were created to provoke precisely the response they have provoked; I am praying that there are some "adults in the room" on both sides who are working frantically to contain this, because the possibility of a regional war, followed by a world war, is a real and present danger to this world right now.

I do not want one more Israeli, or one more Palestinian to be hurt or killed;there must be a point where the madness stops, and all of our common humanity, as brothers and sisters on this planet, must be remembered, and invoked, as though it was a sacred kinship, which in my world, it is.

As history has proven, time and again, it becomes very easy to kill, under some circumstances; the hard part, is doing the hard work which allows us to live together without killing each other.

I would pray that Hamas, Fatah, and the Israeli Knesset are thinking about this, right now.

Israel posts fake videos to justify Gaza slaughter

The Israeli government posted a two-and-a-half-year-old video from Syria, claiming it was from Gaza, in order to justify its ongoing bombing campaign that has killed dozens of Palestinians since Monday.

But there is one problem: The video is old and does not appear to originate from the Gaza Strip.
The exact same video, just two seconds longer, had been posted on YouTube on 22 December 2019 by a user who indicated that it was filmed in Maarrat al-Numan, a city in northeastern Syria.

The original video contains no watermark or text suggesting any connection with Gaza.

This is a familiar propaganda tactic.

During Israel’s massive bombing campaign in Gaza in July 2014, Israel supporters widely shared a video claiming to show “Hamas using children as human shields.”

The video showed a man firing a mortar. Behind him was a group of small children huddled with an older man.

But this too was a video from the civil war in Syria, with no connection to Gaza

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tragically, but perfectly predictable, on the part of the Israeli government and media.

On April 22, more than 300 American lawmakers publicly pledged their unconditional loyalty to a foreign power.

In a letter to the chair and ranking member of the House Appropriations Committee, the members of Congress cautioned against “reducing funding or adding conditions on” US welfare checks (totaling $3.8 billion annually) to Israel.

The letter name-checks US President Joe Biden, who, nearly a year ago tried to have it both ways — decrying Israeli annexation of Palestinian land and the eviction of Palestinian residents to make room for Israeli squatters (“settlers”), while likewise volubly assuring Jewish campaign donors, “I’m not going to place conditions on security assistance.”

Now Biden and members of Congress from both sides of the partisan aisle feign surprise and dismay as the Israeli regime once again makes war on the populations of the Israeli-occupied West Bank and the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip.

What the heck did they expect?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does it ever bother you, the degree to which a foreign country dictates US foreign policy?!?

Please pay attention here; this is profoundly significant!!

Plan for Preemptive Strike? Ukraine Says It Could Be Attacked From Belarus.

Speaking to a security forum in Kiev yesterday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said of a potential armed conflict with neighboring Russia, “I think it could be a world war.”

He was responding to a question by a reporter who had asked whether a Russian attack against Ukraine – he specified in September – could be launched not only from the pro-Russian Donetsk and Lugansk republics in the Donbass but also from Crimea and Belarus. Russia and Belarus are scheduled to hold this year’s ZAPAD joint military exercise in September. (The last was conducted in 2017. Western officials and analysts beforehand warned of the participation of over 100,000 troops; in fact the number was closer to 12,000. We can expect to hear inflated figures again ahead of this year’s event.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this "telegraphing" in the part of Ukraine tells the world precisely where the next false flag regarding a potential attack against Ukraine is supposed to come from, in September?!?

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin spoke with his Israeli counterpart on Wednesday amid Israel’s new bombing campaign in Gaza and reaffirmed the US’s “ironclad commitment” to Israel.

“Secretary Austin conveyed the Department’s ironclad support for Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself and its people, and he strongly condemned the launching of rockets by Hamas and other terrorists groups that targeted Israeli civilians,” the Pentagon said in a readout of the call.

The US has failed to condemn or even really address the Palestinian children that have been killed by Israeli airstrikes in Gaza. Austin also “reiterated the importance of all involved parties to take steps to restore calm.” But Israel appears to be set on escalating the situation and has rejected a truce offer from Hamas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, how soon will the US be bombing Gaza, killing women, children, the medically fragile elderly, and bombing hospitals and schools?!?

And if you do not think this is a real possibility, you have not been paying attention: the US military is still doing this in Yemen as I type this.

Israel Rejects Hamas Truce Offer, Says Gaza Campaign ‘Far From Over’

The Israeli security cabinet voted to intensify airstrikes, Defense Minister Gantz said the operation has 'no end date'
by Dave DeCamp Posted onMay 12, 2021CategoriesNewsTagsGaza, Israel, Palestine
On Wednesday night, Israel rejected a ceasefire offer from Hamas and approved a plan to intensify airstrikes in Gaza.

The truce offer from Hamas was made through the Russian foreign ministry. A Hamas official was quoted as saying that the group would halt attacks on a “mutual basis” with Israel.

According to Haaretz, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the ministers in the Israeli security cabinet agreed unanimously to reject the ceasefire and continue bombing Gaza. The cabinet then voted to escalate the attacks indefinitely

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This very much reminds me of the Catholic response to the Siege at Montsegur against the Cathars, when the Catholic prelate leading the army, was told that there were women and children among the besieged Albigensian men, and "St. Dominic's" response was; "Kill them all: God will find his own."

THE ISRAEL NARRATIVE IS CRUMBLING BECAUSE OF PHONE CAMERAS AND THE INTERNET

SOURCE: CAITLIN JOHNSTONE
There are a lot of factors contributing to the growing awareness of Israel's brutality, but I think the…

“Twenty-four people, including nine children, were killed in Gaza overnight, most of them in Israeli strikes,” reads a new report from AP.
Nine children, killed with the help of United States funding to the tune of $3.8 billion a year.

Remember kids, the US loves Muslims and just wants to protect their human rights.

The Monday night airstrikes were in response to rocket attacks by Gaza resistance groups which had reportedly injured six Israelis, and those rocket attacks were in turn were a response to a deluge of Israeli police brutality footage in Jerusalem in preceding days. Electronic Intifada reports:

This came at the end of a day of violence that began in occupied East Jerusalem, where Israeli forces assaulted worshippers at the al-Aqsa mosque compound, injuring hundreds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a point... where adults in the room, in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Gaza are going to have to realize, that the ulgy truth is being laid bare, on the ground, with real time images that put the lie to Israel's "official narrative" which is being destroyed and dissected, point for point.

Now, the question is, what are the "adults in the room" going to do about it, or has it taken on an stoppable trajectory to cause a regional, and perhaps, world war?!?

There is a word I would use to those in the Bowels of Power in DC, and that word... is "Caution!!"

HOW ‘WOKE’ MAY BE LEADING US TO CIVIL WAR

SOURCE: ROGER SIMON VIA THE EPOCH TIMES
The other day, I wrote that “woke” was the new conformism.

It is, of course, but I undersold it. It’s much more than that and more dangerous.

As Tal Bachman notes at Steynonline, it’s now our state religion, a state religion in a country that - constitutionally and for good reason - isn’t supposed to have one.

But “Wokism” is yet more than that, too. It’s a mass psychosis similar to many that have arisen throughout history when the masses followed leaders who, in their zeal or self-interest, took them to disastrous ends.

A good example was when the Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola - in a 1497 version of “cancel culture” - swept up everything secular in Florence from some of the most extraordinary paintings and sculpture of all time to the works of Boccaccio and burned them in the so-called Bonfire of the Vanities.

AT $49.1 TRILLION, THE U.S. STOCK MARKET IS LARGER THAN THE COMBINED GDP OF THE U.S., CHINA, JAPAN AND GERMANY

When the motherlode of stock market bubbles finally pops, exposing the corrupt edifices on which it was built, you can count on one thing for sure – there will be lots of testimony before Congress that no one could have seen it coming.

The simple chart above, that took us 30 minutes to prepare in an Excel spreadsheet, is proof that anyone among the legions of Wall Street bank regulators at the Federal Reserve, the OCC, the FDIC, and the SEC can see what’s coming.

The chart compares U.S. GDP to the total stock market value at December 31, 1999, prior to the bursting of the dot.com bubble; at December 31, 2007, prior to the bursting of the subprime and derivatives bubble; and on December 31, 2020, prior to the bursting of whatever the bailout boys decide to call this bubble.

CDC CHANGES RULES FOR COUNTING BREAKTHROUGH CASES, AS MORE FULLY VACCINATED PEOPLE TEST POSITIVE

SOURCE: THE DEFENDER
As more reports surface of breakthrough COVID cases, in and outside the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today said it will change how breakthrough cases are reported, effective May 14.

According to a statement on the CDC’s website, the agency said to help “maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance” it will stop reporting weekly COVID breakthrough infections unless they result in hospitalization or death.

The news followed another change, announced late last month, in how PCR tests should be administered to the fully vaccinated.

Divided We Stand: Why We Must Resist Political 'Unity'

Authored by Bruce Frohnen via RealClearPolicy.com,

We hear a lot about “unity” these days. The Biden administration promises and even demands it. Meanwhile, Republicans (and some Democrats) charge the administration with hypocrisy because its radical programs can’t garner a legislative majority — let alone the consensus support the word “unity” implies. But the charge of hypocrisy misses the point: The demand for unity is dangerous because it aims to undermine the genuine diversity that is essential to a free people.

Meituan's CEO Sees Billions Wiped Out Over An Innocuous Thousand-Year Old Chinese Poem

A seemingly innocuous post on an obscure social media platform by a Chinese billionaire CEO has sent shockwaves through the country's tech industry, and cost food delivery giant Meituan many billions in a mere few days in what seems a repeat of last year's Jack Ma "disappearance" saga.

Meituan CEO Wang Xing dabbles in literary classics, and wrote on social media a short poem comprised of just 28 Chinese characters from a 1,100-year old text about China's first emperor and his ill-conceived efforts to stamp out dissent, which included attempts to stifle intellectual debate and any criticisms of himself by burning books. Apparently this was too much for China's censors - as CNBC observes there were immediate and colossal repercussions: "Meituan has seen around $38.96 billion wiped off its value in the past two weeks as Beijing turns its regulatory scrutiny on the Chinese food delivery giant."

Instagram & Twitter apologize for ‘system errors’ that deleted pro-Palestine posts, but critics say they are still ‘censoring’

Days after Instagram and Twitter blamed “system errors” for deleted posts on unrest in Jerusalem, a coalition of civil society groups and digital rights activists have accused them of continuing to “censor” Palestinian content.

Palestinians facing eviction from occupied East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood have taken to social media to protest. Since last week, reports have emerged of some posts, photos and videos being removed and accounts being blocked for reportedly violating community standards.

In a joint statement on Monday, more than 20 groups called out Facebook and Twitter for “systematically silencing users protesting” and urged them to implement “transparent and coherent content moderation policies.”

Terming the scale of the content takedowns as “egregious and pronounced,” the signatories said they were indicative of a “wider pattern of consistent censorship of Palestinian and allied voices” that has been “documented for years.”

The Vaccine Passport: An Instrument of Social Control. The Rise of “Utilitarian Extremism”, and How to Recognize It

Proof of vaccination requirements for travel are rare, and limited to travel to certain destinations where the risk of contracting a disease and bringing it back to a population with nonexistent immunity against it is high

The U.S. government’s job is to protect the Constitutional rights of all Americans. Allowing or encouraging businesses to create a two-tier society where unvaccinated people are barred from participating in civic society is unconstitutional.

Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 will not ensure safety. It won’t even promote it, as the so-called vaccines are designed to merely reduce symptoms of the infection

Utilitarianism, which is now being increasingly promoted, is a discredited pseudo-ethic that has repeatedly been used to justify horrific human rights abuses. It is based on a mathematical equation that some individuals can be sacrificed for the greater good of the majority.

The Criminalization of Dissent. “Covid Deniers”and “Anti-Vaxxers” under Surveillance

One of the hallmarks of totalitarian systems is the criminalization of dissent. Not just the stigmatization of dissent or the demonization of dissent, but the formal criminalization of dissent, and any other type of opposition to the official ideology of the totalitarian system. Global capitalism has been inching its way toward this step for quite some time, and now, apparently, it is ready to take it.

Germany has been leading the way. For over a year, anyone questioning or protesting the “Covid emergency measures” or the official Covid-19 narrative has been demonized by the government and the media, and, sadly, but not completely unexpectedly, the majority of the German public. And now such dissent is officially “extremism.”

It was a telling moment. These companies now act as either censors or officious intermeddlers when it comes to comments made on the platforms.

INSTAGRAM, TWITTER DELETING POSTS ABOUT PALESTINE, BLAME IT ON "GLITCH"

Instagram and Twitter have blamed technical errors for deleting posts mentioning the possible eviction of Palestinians from East Jerusalem, but data rights groups fear "discriminatory" algorithms are at work and want greater transparency.

It came as a long-running legal case over evictions from homes in Sheikh Jarrah has fuelled tensions in Jerusalem where hundreds of Palestinians clashed with Israeli police on Monday.

By Monday, 7amleh, a nonprofit focused on social media, had received more than 200 complaints about deleted posts and suspended accounts related to Sheikh Jarrah.

"On Instagram, it was mostly content takedown, even archives from older stories were deleted. On Twitter, most cases were an account suspension," said Mona Shtaya, an advocacy advisor at 7amleh.

Instagram and Twitter said the accounts were "suspended in error by our automated systems" and the issue had been resolved and content reinstated.

Biden Plans Expansion Of Feds’ Army Of Snitches In ‘Dollars For Collars’ Program

The Biden administration may soon recruit an army of private snoops to conduct surveillance that would be illegal if done by federal agents. As part of its war on extremism, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may exploit a “legal work-around” to spy on and potentially entrap Americans who are “perpetuating the ‘narratives’ of concern,” CNN reported last week. But federal informant programs routinely degenerate into “dollars for collars” schemes that reward scoundrels for fabricating crimes that destroy the lives of innocent Americans. The DHS plan would “allow the department to circumvent [constitutional and legal] limits” on surveillance of private citizens and groups. Federal agencies are prohibited from targeting individuals solely for First Amendment-protected speech and activities. But federal hirelings would be under no such restraint. Private informants could create false identities that would be problematic if done by federal agents.

The Coming IRS Reign Of Terror

The one certainty is that the new powers Biden bestows on the IRS will be horrendously abused, and that most members of Congress won’t give a damn. Instead, they will pile on to further oppress American citizens and political activists. In 1967, a federal appeals court decision proclaimed, “The court will not place its stamp of approval upon a witch-hunt, a crusade to rid society of unorthodox thinkers and actors by using the federal income tax laws” to silence them. -- Unfortunately, such lofty sentiments are far more likely to be found in musty judicial compilations than in today’s Washington.

DHS launches warning system to find domestic terrorism threats on public social media

The Department of Homeland Security has begun implementing a strategy to gather and analyze intelligence about security threats from public social media posts, DHS officials said.

The goal is to build a warning system to detect the sort of posts that appeared to predict an attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 but were missed or ignored by law enforcement and intelligence agencies, the officials said.

The focus is not on the identity of the posters but rather on gleaning insights about potential security threats based on emerging narratives and grievances. So far, DHS is using human beings, not computer algorithms, to make sense of the data, the officials said.

"We're not looking at who are the individual posters," said a senior official involved in the effort. "We are looking at what narratives are resonating and spreading across platforms. From there you may be able to determine what are the potential targets you need to protect."

Listen Up: If You Let Them Force You Into the Vaccine, They’ll Control You Forever

A monologue by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson says it all when it comes to predicting what’s coming down the road if you acquiesce to mandatory COVID vaccines.

Plus, although Democratic leaders including President Biden have been promoting the idea of choice when it comes to vaccine passports, if you let the passport idea in, it may never be your choice again, Carlson says.

“Politicians and bureaucrats should have no role in a decision like that,” Carlson says. “These decisions are for the individual alone to decide, in consultation with family, physicians and clergy. When it comes to medical care, it is your body, your choice … On the questions of vaccines, Joe Biden is not pro-choice. He is pro-mandate. You may have missed that.”

Tucker adds that, despite the idea that the federal government is avoiding making actual mandates, individual businesses and private industry can — and will — do that for the government, and once it happens there may be no easy road to going back.

“Secure Tolerance”: the Jewish Plan to Permanently Silence the West

In 2010, Harvard duo Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons published The Invisible Gorilla, which detailed their study of the human capacity to overlook even the most obvious things. In one of their experiments, Chabris and Simons created a video in which students wearing white and black t-shirts pass a basketball between themselves. Viewers were asked to count the number of times the players with the white shirts passed the ball, and many were later very satisfied to find that they were accurate in their counting. This satisfaction was tainted, however, when they were asked if they had spotted “the gorilla.” Amidst considerable confusion, the video would then be replayed for the puzzled viewers, who were stunned to see a man in a gorilla suit walk among the students and balls, take up a position in the center of the screen, and wave at the camera. They’d missed him entirely in their initial viewing.

Why Did Biden Census Bureau Add 2.5 Million More Residents to Blue-State Population Count?

There is something very fishy about the new 2020 Census Bureau data determining which states picked up seats and which states lost seats.

Most all of the revisions to the original estimates have moved in one direction: Population gains were added to blue states, and population losses were subtracted from red states.

The December revisions in population estimates under the Biden Census Bureau added some 2.5 million blue-state residents and subtracted more than 500,000 red-state residents. These population estimates determine how many electoral votes each state receives for presidential elections and the number of congressional seats in each state.

Jerusalem Protests: The Mob ‘Breaking Faces’ Learned From Israel’s Establishment

Dragged out of bed

What Human Rights Watch and other human rights groups have been documenting is equally visible to the gangs roaming Jerusalem. Israel’s official actions share a common purpose, one that sends a clear message to these youngsters about what the state – and Israel’s national ideology of Zionism – aims to achieve.

They see Palestinian land reclassified as Jewish “state land” and the constant expansion of settlements that violate international law. They see Palestinians denied permits to build homes in their own villages. They see orders issued to demolish Palestinian homes, or even entire communities. And they see Palestinian families torn apart as couples, or their children, are refused the right to live together.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One would have thought.... that after the horror of being labeled "the other" in Germany before World War II,and became subject to horrific actions against them, that Jews who had experienced those kinds of degradation, frequently leading to death, would never, ever inflict such actions against any another human beings, when Israel was founded.

Unfortunately, the reality of 21st century Israel, is that it has become an apartheid theocracy, with nuclear weapons.

I have to wonder.... if this was really what the founders of this country actually wanted, because it has become, in the words of Casey Stengal, "deja vu, all over again."

Russian English language news services have been forced to register as foreign agents (no other foreign news services have had this requirement except the Iranians), and are perhaps worried that they will be closed down if they depart too often from the official narratives.  Locating those news services in the US where they can be intimidated was a mistake.

Chelsea Clinton has spoken out against freedom of vaccine-critical speech at a Vatican conference dedicated to dialogue.

Speaking during a pre-recorded online meeting, Clinton, 41, responded to a question about so-called “vaccine hesitancy” regarding COVID-19 vaccines by saying that there must be a global effort to crack down on vaccine-critical social media posts.

“I personally very strongly believe there has to be more intensive and intentional and coordinated global coordination of the content on social media platforms,” she said.

“We know that the most popular video across all of Latin America for the last few weeks that now has tens of millions of views is just an anti-vax, anti-science screed that YouTube has just refused to take down.”

Clinton added that anti-vaccine content created in the United States “flourishes” across the world by way of social media platforms. Her attempts to convince the managers of these sites to remove the material has not worked, she said.

Bloodbath in Mexico: Another gift of US drug and drone wars

Written by
Ted Galen Carpenter

Washington’s bankrupt drug-war and drone-war initiatives have both come home to roost on America’s own southern border. Decades of U.S. policy ineptitude have empowered Mexico’s drug cartels to the point that they now pose an alarming threat to the country’s basic social order.

Now the violence in Mexico is beginning to exhibit a greater high-tech sophistication. In late April, the Jalisco cartel attacked police in the western state of Michoacan with explosive-laden drones, wounding two officers. It was merely the latest development in just one theater of the country’s ongoing chaos.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American Comedian Ron White, has one line in his stand-up routine, which seems to very much apply here: "You can't fix stupid!!"

And this has been very much a stupid policy with regard to drugs, on the part of the US government.

Were I in government, I would advocate legalizing EVERYTHING, to take the profit motive away from the cartels. Of course, the private and public prison systems would collectively yell, scream, and holler; they love high recidivism rates, and those high rates are, unfortunately, a result, of how the US incarcerates.

Milley: US Considering Training Afghan Forces in Other Countries

n Thursday, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said the US was considering training the Afghan military in other countries after US troops are pulled out of Afghanistan.

“We’ll continue to take a look at training them perhaps in another location,” Milley said at a joint press conference with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. When asked if that means the US would train Afghan forces from a different country, Milley said, “It’s possible.”

“There’s a lot of different options out there, and we haven’t settled on one of them yet,” he added. Milley reiterated that the US will continue to provide financial support for the Afghan military.

The Afghan military, especially the air force, is reliant on Pentagon contractors to maintain their equipment. At the press conference, Austin said the plan is to remove US contractors from Afghanistan, but Milley suggested some sort of contractual support could continue.

HOW THE US GOV'T CULTIVATED ENVIRONMENTAL AND INDIGENOUS GROUPS TO DEFEAT ECUADOR'S LEFTIST CORREÍSTA MOVEMENT

SOURCE: THE GRAYZONE
The people of Ecuador were hit by a surprise in the April 2021 presidential election: Hard-right banker Guillermo Lasso, one of the richest and most corrupt oligarchs in the country, who had unsuccessfully run in two previous races, scored a narrow victory over leftist Andrés Arauz.

Arauz, a progressive young economist, had served as a minister in the government of Ecuador’s socialist President Rafael Correa, who had declared a “Citizens’ Revolution” that transformed the country during his term from 2007 to 2017.

What was not conveyed in most media reports on Lasso’s surprising victory, however, was that Lasso only won thanks to the support he received, both directly and indirectly, from environmental and Indigenous groups that have been co-opted over that last 15 years by the US government and its soft-power networks.

ALDOUS HUXLEY FORESAW OUR DESPOTS - FAUCI, GATES, & THE VACCINE CRUSADERS

SOURCE: PATRICIA MCCARTHY VIA AMERICANTHINKER
In 1949, sometime after the publication of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World (1931), who was then living in California, wrote to Orwell. Huxley had briefly taught French to Orwell as a student in high school at Eton.

Huxley generally praises Orwell's novel, which to many seemed very similar to Brave New World in its dystopian view of a possible future. Huxley politely voices his opinion that his own version of what might come to pass would be truer than Orwell's. Huxley observed that the philosophy of the ruling minority in Nineteen Eighty-Four is sadism, whereas his own version is more likely, that controlling an ignorant and unsuspecting public would be less arduous, less wasteful by other means. Huxley's masses are seduced by a mind-numbing drug, Orwell's with sadism and fear.

The Biden administration has taken to frequently asserting its intention to return — versus the Trump administration’s departure therefrom — to something called a “rules-based international order.”
What is this supposed “order?” What obligations does it impose, and upon whom? Which governments meet those obligations. Which don’t?

Google returns about 197,000 results on the phrase “rules-based international order.” The top result leads to a paper from the United Nations Association of Australia, which defines it as “a shared commitment by all countries to conduct their activities in accordance with agreed rules that evolve over time, such as international law, regional security arrangements, trade agreements, immigration protocols, and cultural arrangements.”

WARNING: CENTRAL BANK DIGITAL CURRENCY WILL BE 100% TRACKABLE CURRENCY

What CBDC [Central Bank Digital Currency] research and experimentation appears to be showing is that it will be nigh on impossible to issue such currencies outside of a comprehensive national digital ID management system. Meaning: CBDCs will likely be tied to personal accounts that include personal data, credit history and other forms of relevant information.
There are two very important implications here:

1. Central banks will have to kill off private sector cryptocurrencies.

There is just no way that CBs are going to allow private crypto that can provide an end-run around CBDC.

2. And this is not fully appreciated at all. Once a CBDC is established and becomes the method of general exchange, it will be very easy for governments to block any kinds of exchanges it desires to block. In other words, it provides the opportunity for cancel culture and authoritarianism at an entirely new level.

And yet, I know, in my heart of hearts, that is how this country's "shadow government" sees me.

And folks, I will be honest; as someone who cares about the future of this country, and the futures of all the kids around us, both of family and friends, that hurts.

  MONTANA IS FIRST STATE TO CANCEL UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS IN RESPONSE TO UNPRECEDENTED WORKER SHORTAGE

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Three weeks ago, when looking at the unprecedented labor shortage that is crippling the US economy (even with some 100 million Americans not in the labor force)...

...we said that there is a simple reason for this paradoxical phenomenon: trillions in Biden stimulus are now incentivizing potential workers not to seek gainful employment, but to sit back and collect the next stimmy check for doing absolutely nothing in what is becoming the world's greatest "under the radar" experiment in Universal Basic Income.

Consider the following striking anecdotes from Bloomberg:

Early in the Covid-19 pandemic, Melissa Anderson laid off all three full-time employees of her jewelry-making company, Silver Chest Creations in Burkesville, Ky. She tried to rehire one of them in September and another in January as business recovered, but they refused to come back, she says. “They’re not looking for work.”

Why Masks Are Still Mandatory

Authored by Alex Hamilton via AmericanThinker.com,

Joe Biden is in a pickle.

He wants to continue to convince Americans they should get the experimental biological agent (AKA "the vaccine"), but, as Tucker Carlson pointed out last week, the administration and the CDC have offered no explanation as to why you need to continue to wear a mask after you have taken "the vaccine."

Why would they want us to doubt the efficacy of the vaccine? Why would any sane person who is not in a high-risk group contemplate becoming a lab experiment subject if you are not allowed (yes, our rights are now derived from government and will be doled out based on compliance) to burn your mask and return to a pre-pandemic way of life?

That's just bad salesmanship...until you think about the alternative.

Think about what would happen if they allowed (there's that word again) people not to wear masks after being vaccinated.

China Pollutes More Than US And All Developed Countries Combined: Report

China's 2019 greenhouse gas emissions exceeded those of the United States and the rest of the developed world combined, according to CNBC, citing a Thursday report by the Rhodium Group - a New York-based advisory group founded in 2003 by China expert Daniel H. Rosen.

According to the study co-authored by a former Obama admin climate policy official, energy modelers and emissions experts (just go with it), China is now responsible for 27% of total global emissions - more than the combined total produced by the United States (11%), India (6.6%) and the 27 EU member nations together (6.4%).

Atlas Is Shrugging: Forget 'The Great Reset', Here Comes 'The Great Reject'

Never mind The Great Reset. Here comes The Great Reject.
It occurred to me that I never did finish the final instalment of last summer’s Jackpot Chronicles, wherein I posited four possible post-Covid scenarios.

For a quick refresher, The Jackpot is concept I cribbed from William Gibson. It’s a term he uses across a few of his near-future cyberpunk novels that describes a series of rolling global catastrophes that set in sometime around 2016 (his stories span multiverses, and timelines, but the common theme is that somewhere around 2016, some kind of irrevocable glitch in the matrix occurred that put a permanent end to normalcy as it has been understood up until that point).

CNN Host Says People Who Don't Take The Vaccine Should Be Socially Ostracized By Friends & Family

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

CNN’s Michael Smerconish says that people who don’t take the vaccine should be socially ostracized and shunned by their friends and family.

During a segment on his show, Smerconish discussed a suggestion made by prosecutor Michael Stern in a USA Today opinion piece about vaccination uptake.

“We’ve gotta shun folks, we’ve gotta shun people into getting vaccinated,” said Smerconish, agreeing that businesses should make getting the vaccine mandatory as a condition of employment.

However, he also asserted that family members and friends should socially ostracize those who choose not to take the vaccine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Seriously, Shmerc?!?

Would someone please sit down with this guy, and gently remind him that "shunning" went out with the dribble glass and the whoopie cushion?

And, oh, BTW; what would a forensic audit of his accounts show he has invested in alleged "vaccine making companies"?!?

My 91 year old mom lives in an assisted living community, and I knew it was a matter of time before management there invoked a "your papers, please!!" about Mike and I having been vaccinated. So we got the J&J jab before we realized that it was giving some people massive blood clots. We were just doggone lucky that we didn't have that response.

The problem, for us, is that the "emergency authorization" under which these medications were licenced were absolutely NOT as "vaccines" but as "experimental MRNA therapy." Forgive me, but in plain English, what does that even mean?!?
It appears that not only will this medication not insure you won't get Covid, or transmit it, but that it might ameliorate the symptoms.

People can have legitimate concerns, for which these Big Pharma companies need to be accountable. Let's place the responsibility where it really needs to fall, and not on those people who have these concerns, for some very intense, and real reasons.

NATO's Southeastern Spearhead: Turkey's Military Aggression In Iraq, Syria, Yemen, & Caucasus Signals Proxy Conflict With Iran

Authored by Rick Rozoff via Anti-Bellum,

The past week has witnessed reports of increased Turkish military activity in Iraq and Syria as well as its intruding itself deeper into the war in Yemen. In all three cases Ankara has pitted itself against forces that are or can be seen to be pro-Iranian: Shiite parties in northern Iraq, the government of Syria and the Houthi-led government in Yemen.

Direct tensions between Turkey and Iran have been increasing since last year over the above three nations as well as the Turkish-directed attack on Nagorno-Karabakh by Azerbaijan (Turkey and Azerbaijan identify themselves as “one nation, two states’) and its aftermath.

Social Unrest Fears Mount As World Food Prices Soar In April

Global inflation is headed into overdrive as the leading food price indicator that is the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization's food price index increased for an 11th consecutive month in April, hitting levels not seen since May 2014, with sugar prices leading the rise in the main index.

The Rome-based FAO released data Thursday showing the food price index, which measures monthly changes for a basket of cereals, oilseeds, dairy products, meat, and sugar, surged 2 points from 118.9 points in March to 120.9 in April.

Children Are Far More Likely To Die From Diarrhea Than COVID-19

By the early 20th century, children were starting to be viewed as more than just cheap, easily exploitable workers. Instead, western nations began to prioritize children’s well-being.

It’s been that way for generations.

Then along came COVID-1984… and all the dictatorial public health measures that have accompanied it.

Entire economies were locked down, borders closed, business shuttered, and basic human interactions forbidden.

These restrictions have been especially damaging for children.

Even to this day, more than a YEAR later, schools are still closed in many parts of the world.

Millions of children simply stopped learning at the age when their minds develop more rapidly than at any other time in life.

Sheepish bureaucrats hid behind Zoom classes as an adequate substitute for real learning and human interaction, though hardly a thought was given to the cost versus benefit.

"Informed decisions" are the rarity rather the rule, in the wake of alleged "Covid-Wokeness".

Maricopa County Defies Subpoena, Won't Release Hardware For Election Audit Over 'Security Risk'

Update (1400ET): Something must be really worrying Democrats. There appears to be a full court press effort to delay and defer any and every effort to audit Maricopa County's election results. The Biden justice department added to pressure from Arizona's chief elections officer (a Democrat) and the Arizona Democratic Party, and now, Daniel Payne at JustTheNews.com reports that officials in Arizona's Maricopa County are withholding materials subpoenaed by the state legislature as part of its audit of the county's 2020 election, claiming that surrendering them would constitute a security risk for both law enforcement and federal agencies.

Gundlach Warns America's "Unfunded Liabilities" Are $163 Trillion, More Than 5x National Debt

The other day, DoubleLine released a recording of another talk given by Gundlach where he elaborated on the inflation theme, while also discussing other issues like the outlook for the US dollar in the face of President Biden's tax-and-spend agenda.

During the course of an hour-plus conversation, much of it accompanied by a slide deck with some of Gundlach's favorite charts, Gundlach tackled a few key topics that he feels could threaten the Fed's ability to backstop financial markets.

He started by slamming Biden's plan to hike capital gains taxes on taxpayers with more than $1 million in earnings, arguing that fears of higher capital gains taxes is already weighing in the market.

Gundlach argued that high-beta stocks and other speculative investments like bitcoin have the most to lose due to a hike in capital gains. After all, who is going to want to take a risk on a long shot if they need to give half of their winnings to the government?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a move on behalf of the Biden government which cannot, possibly, end well.

Le Pen Cleared Of Breaking Hate Speech Laws For Posting Images of ISIS Atrocities

Populist leader Marine Le Pen has been cleared of violating hate speech laws after she was ludicrously charged for posting images of ISIS atrocities in an effort to illustrate the barbarity of ISIS.

Le Pen originally posted the images in 2015 as a rebuttal to comparisons that were being made between her National Front party and Islamic jihadists.

“This is what Daesh is,” she wrote under the photos, which showed ISIS militants executing people.

Despite posting the photos in an effort to denounce ISIS, Le Pen was accused of “disseminating violent messages that could seriously harm human dignity,” a charge that was never applied to media outlets or journalists who shared similar photos.

While anything other than an acquittal would have been incomprehensible, the fact that it took over 5 years to happen is absurd and undoubtedly related to Le Pen’s hostility to the French establishment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this woman did... was to demonstrate the truth of the situation.

One knows that a society is on the brink of no return, when telling the truth gets criminalized.

IF these images were "fake news", that would have been horrendous; but in light of the fact that these images were of events which actually happened, these charges should never have been brought about by French authorities in the first place.

Religious/political assassinations are just plain morally wrong, period, end of discussion.

White House Supports Social Media’s Ability To Silence ‘Misinformation’

According to the White House, social media companies have the responsibility of shutting down misinformation. During a press conference Wednesday, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Facebook’s decision to uphold its ban of President Trump.

Specifically, she was asked if Big Tech oligarchs can muzzle a former president, what’s to stop them from silencing anyone? Psaki said she had no comment on Trump, but said Joe Biden’s view is that the major platforms have the job to stop amplifying “untrustworthy content.”

“His view is that there’s more that needs to be done to ensure that this type of misinformation, disinformation, damaging, sometimes life threatening information is not going out to the American public,” stated the press secretary.

Facebook Board Upholds Donald Trump Suspension. Could His YouTube,Twitter Accounts Return?

Facebook’s oversight board has reached a decision on Donald Trump’s eviction from the platform, upholding his suspension but ordering Facebook to either reinstate him or ban him permanently within six months. The former president was booted from all major social media platforms in wake of the Capitol riots on Jan. 6.

The board’s decision is a blow for Trump’s dwindling chances to return to social media, leaving only the possibility of a return to Youtube and the slim odds that Facebook will decide to reinstate him fully.

YouTube has pledged to eventually reinstate his account, but when asked about a timeframe in March CEO Susan Wojcicki said that an “elevated violence risk still remains.”

“We will turn the account back on,” she said. “But it will be when we see the reduced law enforcement in capitals in the U.S, if we don’t see different warnings coming out of government agencies, those would all be signals to us that it would be safe to turn the channel back on.”

White House: Biden Believes More 'Needs to Be Done' by Social Media Giants to Stop Harmful Content

Earlier, reports surfaced detailing that the ban imposed against former US President Donald Trump by social media giant Facebook would remain in place. The announcement was made by Facebook's oversight board.

Social media platforms must implement measures that will ensure untrustworthy information is not amplified as tech companies are responsible for stopping the promotion of harmful content on their sites, the White House declared on Wednesday.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters during the daily briefing that US President Joe Biden believes that "major platforms have a responsibility related to the health and safety of all Americans to stop amplifying untrustworthy content, disinformation and misinformation, especially related to COVID-19, vaccinations and elections.”

Trump Slams 'Corrupt Social Media Companies', Says They Must Pay 'Political Price'

Earlier in the day, Facebook's Oversight Board decided to uphold a ban on Donald Trump's account on the social media platform that was introduced in January following the Capitol riot.

Former US President Donald Trump has blasted Facebook, Twitter, and Google for banning him from their platforms, labelling their actions "a total disgrace and embarrassment". He called the trio "corrupt social media companies" and insisted that they must pay a "political price" for what they did.

"Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before. The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must […] never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process", Trump said.

DOJ Targets Journalist Investigating Biden Family Ukraine Scandals

As part of an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, the Biden Justice Department is seizing communications between the former mayor and a journalist investigating President Joe Biden’s business dealings with Ukraine.

Agents from the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office and the FBI raided the New York residence of Giuliani early Wednesday morning. The investigation stems from at least a two-year-old probe into potential crimes of federal lobbying laws. Federal investigators seized Giuliani’s electronic devices.

The warrant presented, however, according to Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, raises questions surrounding the scope and motivation behind the investigation, where prosecutors began issuing subpoenas around the same time of Trump’s first impeachment inquiry launched by Democrats centered on conduct in Ukraine in 2019.

Dangers Of Programmable Money Explained

Dominic Frisby with Money, Markets & Other Matters talks about the war on cash and central bank digital currency, known as CBDC. He questions if CBDCs are "the final step into the brave new world - Orwellian great reset dystopia - we seem to be heading towards" or are they "the onramp to the Bitcoin motorway." He said the answer is "both."

Frisby points out the biggest issue with CBDCs is that digital money is "programmable," which means the issuer, such as the Federal Reserve or the Bank of England, can build specific rules into it. He said cash grants users freedom and power.

The Criminalization of Dissent

One of the hallmarks of totalitarian systems is the criminalization of dissent. Not just the stigmatization of dissent or the demonization of dissent, but the formal criminalization of dissent, and any other type of opposition to the official ideology of the totalitarian system. Global capitalism has been inching its way toward this step for quite some time, and now, apparently, it is ready to take it.

Germany has been leading the way. For over a year, anyone questioning or protesting the “Covid emergency measures” or the official Covid-19 narrative has been demonized by the government and the media, and, sadly, but not completely unexpectedly, the majority of the German public. And now such dissent is officially “extremism.”
