Useful idiots chanting ‘death to America’ in Oakland, CA
Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said last month via Belarusian Telegraph Agency, BelTA., that World Bank and IMF offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of “Covid Relief Aid.” In exchange, the World Bank and IMF demanded that the President of Belarus:
• Imposed “extreme lock down on his people”
• Force them to wear face masks
• Impose very strict curfews
• Impose a police state
• CRASH the economy
Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko REFUSED, stating he could not accept such an offer and would put his people above the needs of the IMF and World Bank. This is NOT a conspiracy. You may research this yourself. He actually said this!
Now, the IMF and World Bank are bailing out failing airlines with billions of dollars, and in exchange, they are FORCING airline CEOs to implement VERY STRICT POLICIES such as FORCED face masks covers on EVERYONE, including SMALL CHILDREN, whose health will suffer as a result of these policies.
And if it is true for Belarus, then it is true for the rest of the world! The IMF and World Bank want to crash every major economy with the intent of buying every nation’s infrastructure at cents on the dollar!
In an extremely rare, if not absolutely unprecedented confession from a sitting American president, Trump stunned a news panel on Tuesday morning in saying he wanted to assassinate President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.
“I would’ve rather taken [Assad] out. I had it all set. Mattis didn’t want to do it,” Trump said in a wide-ranging interview with Fox & Friends.
The question has persisted over the past years of war in Syria after Bob Woodward first reported in 2018 that Trump was pursuing it.
At the time Trump had vehemently denied it: “No, that was never even contemplated, nor would it be contemplated and it should not have been written about in the book,” he had previously stated.
But Trump casually described Tuesday that in fact he was seriously considering it, only to be stopped by his Secretary of Defense at the time, Marine general Jim Mattis, which Trump added “was a highly overrated general”.
The Fox hosts quickly followed by asking whether Trump “regretted” not taking out Assad. Trump responded:
“No, I don’t regret that. I could have lived either way with that. I considered [Assad] certainly not a good person. But I had a shot to take him out if I wanted but Mattis was against it.”
However, considering the Russian military has been deeply entrenched in Syria since 2015, and as Putin vowed not to allow the West to complete its push for regime change, we wonder how exactly Trump “had a shot to take him out”.
Recall that Trump has bombed Syria on two occasions after allegations Assad used chemical weapons, with the 2018 attack involving over 100 tomahawk cruise missiles on Damascus. During the first instance, in April 2017, his daughter Ivanka reportedly influenced the decision.
NBC reported in April 2017: Donald Trump’s decision to bomb Syria was influenced by his daughter, Ivanka, being “heartbroken and outraged” at the country’s alleged chemical weapons attack, one of the president’s sons told a British newspaper.
She reportedly showed her father pictures of suffering children while making the plea. Trump’s Syria policy has since then been all over the map – on the one hand he’s consistently voiced a desire to “bring the troops home” while more recently touting that “we’re securing the oil”.
Mainstream media ignores groundbreaking revelation
Infowars’ Owen Shroyer asks if the news that George Floyd was a police informant totally destroys the entire BLM narrative.
Jack Posobiec released a document on Saturday showing Floyd was cooperating with either the Minneapolis Police Department, the FBI or another federal agency as a “snitch” before he was killed.
BREAKING: Within hours after being released for allegedly starting a brush fire in Portland using a Molotov cocktail, Domingo Lopez Jr. allegedly started six more fires along the west side of the I-205 freeway. He’s been arrested again. #OregonFires
A suspect arrested last evening for starting a brush fire was arrested again after he started 6 more small fires.
On Monday, September 14, 2020 at 3:37a.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched with Portland Fire and Rescue to a report of multiple fires burning along the west side of the I-205 freeway. Portland Fire and Rescue extinguished three of them while passing community members put out the other three. All were caught early. No one was injured and no structures were burnt. Officers located Domingo Lopez, Junior walking along the shoulder and arrested him. They seized a lighter as evidence.
Lopez was transported to a hospital on a Police Officer Hold for a mental health evaluation. He was issued citations for 6 additional counts of Reckless Burning.
###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###
A suspect was arrested after using a Molotov Cocktail to start a small brush fire.
On Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 4:35p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to assist Portland Fire and Rescue with a brush fire in the 9600 block of East Burnside Street. Officers saw that a section of grass along the I-205 freeway was burning. Firefighters extinguished the fire. No one was injured and no structures were damaged.
About an hour later, East officers were flagged down by a witness who pointed out the suspect in a nearby tent. Officers arrested the suspect, who confirmed he lit the fire with the device.
Officers seized a plastic bottle with a wick as evidence (photos).
Officers booked Domingo Lopez Jr., 45, into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Reckless Burning and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree. Arson investigators are also doing follow-up to see if other charges are warranted.

A former CIA ops officer who spent decades undercover in the Middle East and South Asia warns that “violence will explode” if Trump wins re-election and will probably continue anyway even if Biden wins.
In an op-ed for Revolver News, Sam Faddis characterizes the recent riots, described as “mostly peaceful” by the media, as nothing less than an “insurrection.”
Faddis says that the rioters are not merely unorganized mobs, but a “manifestation of years of preparation, organization, and sponsorship from a vast network of foundations and front organizations,” including George Soros’s Open Society.
Faddis points out that the rioters have openly stated their goal, the “abolition of the United States as we know it and its replacement with a Marxist state.”
The former CIA officer predicts another wave of violence if Trump wins re-election, but also warns that the unrest will continue even if Biden wins because the revolutionaries will seek to take full control of his administration.
“That is why it is profoundly delusional to believe the riots of the past three months will end with the November election. They will not,” writes Faddis.
“Should President Trump win, his victory will immediately be declared invalid and illegitimate by the mob, and the level of violence will explode. If Biden wins, the people and groups tearing this nation apart will consider him their puppet and will accelerate their efforts at revolution. If Biden proves unwilling or unable to accommodate them, he will suffer the same fate as Portland mayor Ted Wheeler, who endures antifa harassment of his home as the price of failing to submit.”
“This is not about reform. It is about revolution, and revolutions don’t care about elections,” he concludes.
As we previously highlighted, earlier this month a pro-Biden polling firm announced that the results on election night could show Trump winning in a landslide, but that after all the mail-in votes were counted, Biden would be victorious with room to spare.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also said that Americans must get used to the idea that the election result may take “weeks” to be confirmed after voting on November 3 and that “civil unrest” is likely.
Trump supporters see this as clear intention that Democrats will refuse to honor the election result if the president wins.
When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – You may know that your society is doomed. -Ayn Rand
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, without evidence, declared Friday that the ongoing wildfires in his state prove the science surrounding global warming is now officially settled.
“The debate is over around climate change. Just come to the state of California, observe it with your own eyes,” a grinning Newsom told reporters while touring the fire-ravaged North Complex near Oroville. “It’s not an intellectual debate, it’s not even debatable.”
(By Michael Every of Rabobank) Today is like one of those rare occasions when the Broadway understudy for a leading role finds out that the star has the ‘flu (not Covid-19) and so they get to go in front of the audience for once. Yes, Europe, today is your time to shine: “Everything’s coming up Milhouse!”.
Or not. Because the pressure is certainly on.
First, we have the ECB. The market whisper is that they have decided that a global backdrop where the Fed, BOE, RBA and RBNZ, among others, have all flagged that things remain grave, and that far more easing can still be; where a second wave of the virus is clearly evident; and where we are worryingly close to a Hard Brexit, is the right time to sell sunny economic uplands ahead. Or at least that is what the markets will perceive the outcome to be if we indeed see their economic forecasts revised upwards without the right serious tone. They will take that to mean that while everyone else is close to doing more, the ECB isn’t. And the impact, if we haven’t already seen it in buy-the-rumour, sell-the-fact manner, will be appropriate.
Second, we have the EU trying to deal with Brexit, where the UK is, on its own admittance, steering towards acting like a rogue state and unilaterally breaking international law. There is an emergency meeting today between the two sides and, frankly, it’s unclear if the UK is going to talk or declare “There is a bomb in this briefcase!” One would imagine that part of this might feed into the ECB’s thinking if the meetings overlap(?)
At the same time, the EU is dealing with China. EC executive vice-president Vestager is going to be talking to China’s Liu He, and the South China Morning Post reports the latter will be offering Europe the chance to join it in its proposed new China Network on data security….as opposed to the US Clean Network, being the unspoken part. Once again, we see Europe caught in the middle. Once again, it will probably “try to go its own way”. In the same way Europe doesn’t rely on the US in NATO and on the USD in the Eurodollar markets. The understudy, indeed.
Let’s see how Milhouse does when the spotlight shines.
Meanwhile, here is something to study. China has announced it plans to boost its strategic commodities reserves to assuage anxiety over energy and food security. Starting in 2021, it will make what Bloomberg calls “mammoth” purchases of crude, strategic materials, and farm goods, officials apparently say. This is being done to ensure China can ride out any repeat of this year’s supply disruptions, or a deterioration in trade relations with the US, for example. This is apparently part of the shift to “internal circulation”, or greater self-reliance, which is already being flagged, and which will kick in for the five year plan 2021-25.
Actually, those in the know know that this has already been happening across the board for some time: China has been swallowing up raw materials and strategic goods far in advance of what the economy needs right now. That means the drop in other imports –which are still down y/y overall even including this commodity surge– is even larger. (And why aren’t FX reserves rising even as the trade surplus soars…? Mmmm.)
Here’s the understudy way to study this: go long commodities! – because obviously China buying in vast quantities for years to come, right? Expect lots of stories like that.
Here’s the star way to think about it: what does it really say if China is stocking up so much? Has there ever been a point during trade tensions where anyone has ever threatened not to sell to China? The issue is always that trade partners don’t ONLY want to sell raw materials and unprocessed commodities to it, but rather to hold more of the technology and value chain themselves. That is as true for Europe as it is for the US.
What possible disruption could be on the horizon that would require China to have a large enough buffer of all conceivable inputs –in remote inland areas to boot– that it needs to use up its precious USD reserves in a bulk splurge now?
“Geopolitics”, as we say euphemistically? That hardly suggests the benign, sunny uplands that ECB is going to try to sell today, with its eyes firmly on its own shoes, RBA-style.
It can’t be on *imminent* concerns of the US acting on China’s USD access because all these purchases will presumably still be made in those precious USD, even in vast size,… right? Or is the idea with THAT much buying, a shift to CNY can be accelerated? For commodity sellers, that’s something to consider. So is that this would be a multi-year bull-run – and then a very sharp stop.
Indeed, theoretically China would no longer have to worry about not having enough of X, or Y, or Z; and it could simply stop buying from industry/country X, or Y, or Z for a year or two if prices were too high,….and watch them collapse,…until prices were again amenable, or the asset was for sale, or the relevant government ‘came to its senses’ on foreign policy.
I am not saying this is what China *IS* doing. Yet this is how anyone seeing trade geostrategically, or fearing that others are going to do the same, would think – and act. We have more than enough examples from history from all round the word; and our domestic economies are replete with monopoly and monosophy, and at the firm level we see the same game play out.
Is everything really coming up Milhouse, Milhouse?
But let’s ignore all that and watch Christine Lagarde try to explain why there may be marginally more of the inflation the ECB never generates ahead than the previous set of forecasts predicted, underlining why such forecasting is not worth doing anyway.
The Trump administration confirmed in a statement Wednesday that it is “blocking” many students from China from obtaining visas to America, specifically graduate students focusing on research in scientific and medical fields over fears they could steal sensitive research.
Citing the acting head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Chad Wolf, Reuters reports:
“We are blocking visas for certain Chinese graduate students and researchers with ties to China’s military fusion strategy to prevent them from stealing and otherwise appropriating sensitive research,” he said in a speech in Washington.
This comes after longtime allegations that Beijing is seeking to obtain sensitive coronavirus data and research from American pharmaceutical companies, labs and academic institutions amid the global race for a vaccine.
In the past few years Chinese students have made up the largest contingent of visas issued to foreign graduate students and researchers. For example, DHS lists that for the 2018-2019 academic year, American universities had a whopping 272,470 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled.
It’s as yet unclear how many students are currently banned from travel to the US under this latest DHS policy. But already students who completed their undergraduate programs in China at schools linked to the PLA Army are seeing their visas canceled.
Apparently some are just now finding out, as Reuters details:
Earlier, some Chinese students enrolled in U.S. universities said they received emailed notices from the U.S. embassy in Beijing or U.S. consulates in China on Wednesday informing them that their visas had been canceled.
Nearly 50 students holding F-1 academic visas including postgraduates and undergraduates said in a WeChat chatroom the notices stated they would have to apply for new visas if they wanted to travel to the United States.
Cities like Toronto run by politically-correct ‘leaders’ are becoming increasingly dangerous and violent.
Gang crime continues to run rampant in Toronto, with the city outpacing their shooting deaths from last year – which was in itself the most violent year in a long-time.
Yet, amid the rampant gang crime, the corrupt politicians continue their insane focus on law-abiding gun owners, directing resources and attention away from the actual source of crime.
The latest example of the rampant violence in Toronto is a video going around showing someone outside, hearing a whole bunch of shots being fired:
As Tracey Wilson said on Twitter, this is literally insane:
“This is insane. Literally. These aren’t IPSC sport shooters or hunters, everyone knows it. How can the anti gun lobbyists and the Liberals pat themselves on the back for their lack of action on real crime and violence”
Politicians like John Tory and Justin Trudeau are trying to take guns away from law-abiding Canadian gun owners, while gang crime surges out of control.
It’s like living in the Twilight Zone. Everything is upside down. Nothing is as it seems. Our ‘leaders’ have abandoned their duty, and are turning all their attention and power on good People, while criminals get to act with impunity.
As long as these insane leaders remain in power, things will get more and more dangerous in our country.
What is happening in Rochester, NY, should make it crystal clear, that the ANTIFA and BLM anarchists rioting in their streets, don’t care about black lives, they are determined to burn down our country using any death of a black American in police custody, to justify their evil actions.
If someone has lost their mental faculties, sitting in the street naked, has to be subdued by the police, and dies due to underlying health issues, how can anyone conclude racism was involved in his demise?
Ask yourself as you go through this article, what would I have done differently?
(Mike Adams) The results of the 2020 election are already locked in: Trump wins, and he goes on to dismantle the corrupt, criminal Democrat party that tried (and failed) to destroy America and replace it with a communist regime of left-wing authoritarian tyrants.
How does Trump accomplish this?
President Trump has a “secret weapon” that I’ve been talking about for several months in Health Ranger Report podcasts on Brighteon.com. Until recently, I didn’t know the exact nature of the secret weapon but was told by highly reliable sources that plans were already in place for Trump to defeat the Democrats and protect America from left-wing efforts to destroy this nation.
Now we’ve been able to confirm the content of this “secret weapon” that will be invoked to save America. It’s the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
The Fourteenth Amendment — see the full text here — speaks directly to the powers of the federal government in dealing with officials, individuals and states that are engaged in “rebellion” against the United States of America.
Specifically, the Fourteenth Amendment grants the U.S. President the power to:
In essence, the Fourteenth Amendment grants American citizens “equal protection” under law, but for public officials or states which are engaged in “insurrection or rebellion” against the United States, those equal protections are revoked.
The Democrats already know all this, which is why they are pursuing a plan of election chaos, hoping to throw the entire election process into mass confusion, from which they plan to attempt an illegal coup to eliminate Trump from office and claim political power over the nation.
It should be rather obvious that at this very moment, California, Oregon, Washington, New York, Illinois and many other states are engaged in open rebellion against the United States, and that thousands of public officials within those states — mayors, governors, state legislators, police chiefs, etc. — are granting “aid or comfort” to the rebellion.
Under the Fourteenth Amendment, Trump merely needs to declare an insurrection, then he can have Mayor Lightfoot (Chicago), Mayor Wheeler (Portland), Mayor Durkan (Seattle) and even de Blasio (NYC) arrested and removed from office for violating their oaths of office. All those mayors (and many more) have taken an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, but they have violated their oaths, and under the Fourteenth Amendment that means they have nullified their own right to equal protection under the law.
Because they violated the U.S. Constitution and actively engaged in rebellion against the United States, in other words, they no longer enjoy the benefits of protections under the Constitution.
In addition, President Trump can eliminate congressional House seats for states that support rebellion, reducing their apportionment in the House. This means the states’ Electoral College votes are also reduced, since those numbers are based on the number of House + Senate representatives for each state. This is based on the fact that these states are aiding the efforts of Big Teach to deny the rights of conservatives to participate in elections and voting, via politically-targeted censorship and voter suppression tactics now routinely used by Google, Facebook and other tech giants.
Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment specifically addresses voter suppression. It says that states which support the suppression of the ability of citizens to participate in voting will lose a portion of their own seats in Congress as well as Electoral College representation. Right now, the most overt and obvious voter suppression is being carried out by Big Tech platforms such as Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube, but similar censorship is also being undertaken by Microsoft, Apple, Vimeo and other tech giants. These companies are granted aid and comfort by numerous left-wing cities and states which often grant these companies property tax deferments and legal protections against legitimate investigations or prosecutions. In other words, states like California are actively protecting the Big Tech platforms that are suppressing voter participation via politically-targeted censorship. And this puts California in violation of Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Furthermore, President Trump can arrest and imprison all state and federal judges who have granted “aid or comfort” to insurrectionists by, for example, releasing them without charge after they were arrested for participating in riots or assaulting law enforcement officers. This means all Soros-funded District Attorneys and anti-America judges who have supported the insurrection can now be arrested and removed from office in one fell swoop.
Remember that Democrat officials in Oregon, Washington, California, New York, Illinois and other states have overtly granted protections — and in some cases, actual funding — to Black Lives Matter terrorists. This means these officials are complicit in “rebellion” against the United States. Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment states that they cannot hold any public office, “civil or military.” Here’s the language: (emphasis added)
No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.
Finally, Section 4 of the Fourteenth Amendment says, “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States.” This means that cities and states which are suffering extreme economic losses due to their support for rioting and insurrection — such as Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, etc.) — cannot make any claim to federal money to reimburse them for their losses.
Their losses have been incurred as a result of their support for acts of insurrection and rebellion against the United States, and thus the United States has no obligation to reimburse them for such losses.
All this explains why Nancy Pelosi recently declared President Trump and the GOP to be “enemies of the state.” This is the kind of language that would only be used by the Speaker of the House if they intend to attempt a violent coup followed by mass exterminations of their political opponents:
The reason Democrats went insane when Trump won the 2016 election is because holding the office of the presidency grants that person access to all the powers that the U.S. Constitution (and subsequent law) confers to the president. One of those powers is the power to declare an insurrection against the government. Such a declaration unleashes enormous powers of government which are then directed by the president against the domestic enemies which are waging war against the United States.
It is now rather obvious that we are already in that war, which is being waged by radical, extreme left-wing terrorists on a nightly basis. That war is supported and aided by the tech giants who censor all critics of the insurrectionists while aiding their acts of treason by allowing their platforms to be used to coordinate attacks against America.
Left-wing mayors, governors, judges, state representatives and other oath-swearing officials are also openly engaged in insurrection against the United States, and Trump’s declaration of an open insurrection will enable them all to be arrested and removed from power.
This is what Trump must do to save America. It is unlikely that he will declare an insurrection before the election, however. This action seems likely to occur after the election.
Strategically speaking, we urge President Trump to declare the insurrection before the election, because this would allow him to challenge the Electoral College votes from states which are supporting open rebellion against the United States (for all the reasons noted above). Even if Trump declares the insurrection just one day before the election, this grants him a basis from which he may challenge the Electoral College votes from insurrectionist states like California.
It also grants Trump the opportunity to arrest all the corrupt, left-wing officials the day afterthe election, shutting down their criminal attempts to counterfeit ballots after the fact that try to “win” by cheating in the weeks following the election itself. Trump can largely shut down that effort by simply declaring an insurrection and arresting all these treasonous actors the day after the election. They cannot counterfeit more ballots, after all, if they’re sitting in jail.
This action would, of course, cause the radical Left to ignite an attempted nationwide kinetic war against the government, but at that point Trump is free to issue escalated engagement orders for federal law enforcement while even bringing in the U.S. military to halt all domestic enemies of the United States who are engaged in acts of treason or warfare against America (deploying the military to defeat domestic enemies of America does not violate Posse Comitatus).
Remember when I told you a year ago that when martial law comes to America, you will beg for it? Now you understand why. When the radical Left unleashes yet more violence, arson, looting, property destruction and anarchy across America, most reasonable Americans will fully support temporarily martial law and even military action on the streets of America to clean out the insurrectionists and restore civility to this nation.
The Fourteenth Amendment is the key to all this. But alongside it, don’t forget that Barack Obama signed into law the NDAA which was intended to be handed over to Hillary Clinton as a weapon against patriots and conservatives. Now, that government weapon is in the hands of Trump, and he can deploy it against communist sympathizers and treasonous insurrectionists.
In fact, some of the FEMA camp activity being widely reported now, I believe, is actually all about gearing up these camps to house left-wing traitors who are arrested en masse in the coming months. These irrational, insane, lawless lunatics cannot be rehabilitated to rejoin civil society. At best, the nation will have to warehouse them in prison camps for an extended period of time.
In the same way that you can’t teach a pigeon to play chess, and you can’t teach a pig to sing, you can’t teach a Leftist how to function in civil society. They no longer operate in the realms of reason, civility, fairness or freedom. All they know us authoritarianism and violence, which explains why they will have to be isolated from society for the rest of their lives. This is what their parents, school teachers and college professors taught them, of course: How to be crybullies and terrorists, not how to function as reasonable citizens in a free society.
Despite their best efforts to bring this nation to its knees, Democrats are going to fail in their attempts to destroy America. They will succeed, however, in gutting their own cities and causing an economic implosion that will see most of America’s left-wing cities plunged into Third World status over the next five years. California can barely even keep the lights on as it is. Just wait until they come up $100 billion short for this year’s budget and can’t force Trump to bail them out with federal money. The mass government layoffs and pension slashing efforts are about to begin in Democrat-run states like New York and California. It will be brutal, and any income earner who has the ability to flee such states is already in the process of bugging out, leaving behind ghost town cities filled with criminals, homeless people, left-wing terrorists and impoverished welfare recipients.
Ultimately, Democrats will end up imploding and destroying their own future. After the failed insurrection attempt, the Democrat party will be disbanded, and thousands of former Democrat officials will either be dead or imprisoned. This is the fate they have chosen, since they refuse to live in peace with people who have different political views. (Exactly when did “coexist” become “kill all Republicans?”)
Trump is in charge, and he has numerous “secret weapons” to deploy against the treasonous Dems, as I explain in this important podcast:
“Our epoch will come to an end through other forces, through a mighty increase of egoism in human nature, and, on account of this, through the “war of all against all.” Only those who turn to a spiritual life will survive the catastrophe. Those who are now turning towards a spiritual life should feel it their duty to do all that is possible to rescue the good seed of our age and carry it over into the sixth epoch.” Rudolf Steiner, Universe Earth and Man, Lecture 10, August 4, 1908, GA 105
(Douglas Gabriel) Are you in despair about what you read and hear on the news today? Do you wonder what you can do to help the world heal? Do you believe that we are in apocalyptic times or that we are approaching the ‘war of all against all’? Do you wonder why a loving creator could take us this far on our journey as humans to have us come to such a cataclysmic ending?
Are there great master beings coming to save us? Is the rapture coming soon? Am I one of the chosen ones who will survive? Is there a way through the apocalypse of modern times?
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has had a serious problem with Antifa riots in his city for more than 100 nights and counting. But the leftist mayor is just not going to do anything about it except beg them to stop rioting.
(Baxter Dmitry) Wheeler, whose own apartment building was a target of Antifa rioters and arsonists this week, has made a big deal of refusing federal help from President Trump, criticizing the POTUS in an open letter for even bothering to offer.
However, the far-left Democratic mayor wants everyone to also know that rioters in his city are “terrorizing families with children,” and he would kindly like them to stop.
That statement decrying rioters conveniently appeared on his Facebook page after they attempted to set his condominium building ablaze Monday night.
WARNING: The following video contains bad language that some viewers may find offensive:
(Whitney Webb) A group of “bipartisan” neoconservative Republicans and establishment Democrats have been “simulating” multiple catastrophic scenarios for the 2020 election, including a simulation where a clear victory by the incumbent provokes “unprecedented” measures, which the Biden campaign could take to foil a new Trump inauguration.
A group of Democratic Party insiders and former Obama and Clinton era officials as well as a cadre of “Never Trump” neoconservative Republicans have spent the past few months conducting simulations and “war games” regarding different 2020 election “doomsday” scenarios.
Per several media reports on the group, called the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), they justify these exercises as specifically preparing for a scenario where President Trump loses the 2020 election and refuses to leave office, potentially resulting in a constitutional crisis. However, according to TIP’s own documents, even their simulations involving a “clear win” for Trump in the upcoming election resulted in a constitutional crisis, as they predicted that the Biden campaign would make bold moves aimed at securing the presidency, regardless of the election result.
(William F. Jasper) Wanna burn down a city this Saturday? Take your pick: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Portland, Seattle, Washington, D.C. — and more. The Revolutionary Communist Party’s RefuseFascism.org website gives you all the details concerning times and places to meet for their “September 5 Protest Everywhere: Demand #TrumpPenceOutNow” events.
For those unfamiliar with the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), it is one of the most violent, hardcore Maoist organizations in the United States, infamous for street fighting, rioting, and physical assaults on the police. Its veteran cadres have played an important role in riots over the decades, including the 1992 Rodney King riots that devastated Los Angeles and dozens of other cities, and the current wave of destruction that has been wracking America for the past several months.
Despite their well-known and documented history of violence and its promotion of insurrection and revolutionary overthrow of capitalism and the United States government, the RCP and RefuseFascism have no problems promoting their criminal, subversive agenda via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
But the RCP/RefuseFascism thugs are not the only revolutionaries that are promoting the Antifa/BLM riots with the apparent blessings of the “progressive” globalist billionaires that run Big Tech’s TwitFaceGoogYou social media empire.
Additional organizations and websites that are notorious for promoting Antifa/BLM and for providing coordination are: the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, the Workers World Party, the Black Rose Anarchist Federation, Jacobin magazine, CrimethInc, It’s Going Down, EnoughIsEnough, NonCopyriot, Revolutionary Organizing Against Racism (ROAR), and many others. All of them boast Facebook and Twitter accounts, not to mention accounts with YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Mastadon, and more.
Over the past several years, the political correctness censors at TwitFaceGoogYou have grown increasingly brazen in their enforcement of left-wing orthodoxy by demonetizing, shadow banning, and deplatforming conservative, pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, and pro-Trump websites, articles, and videos. Alex Jones, Candace Owens, Prager U, and Project Veritas are but a few of the many examples that could be cited of blatant political bias exercised by the Big Tech giants against outspoken conservative individuals and organizations. (See the articles linked below at the end of this report.)
On February 17, 2017, when President Trump tweeted his famous charge accusing the “Fake News” of being “the enemy of the American People!,” tens of millions of Americans stood up and cheered, because finally a leading American political figure had dared to speak truth to power and call out the blatant liars and subversives of the media industrial complex. He stated: “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” The truth of that tweet was so transparently obvious and resonated so powerfully with so many Americans that it sent shock waves through the globalist establishment.
Of course, President Trump did not intend the short list of media entities in his tweet — nytimes, NBCNews, ABC, CBS, CNN — to be construed as a comprehensive listing, as his subsequent tweets and statements have shown. There are, literally, hundreds of media outlets that qualify as “Fake News” and as enemies of truth and freedom, as well as enemies of the American people.
The blatant ongoing bias against conservatives by Twitter, Facebook, Google, YouTube, and other social-media companies, and their simultaneous support for those promoting revolution, insurrection, sedition, and rioting, show that they also are in the enemy camp. If the Antifa/BLM criminals incite more riots and destroy more urban centers on September 5, a way must be found to hold the TwitFaceGoogYou radicals accountable, including stripping these social-media titans of the immunity against legal liability they are unfairly granted under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996.
One can only wonder what might happen if today’s silent majority ever gets around to figuring out that we can’t solve our problems with politicians and elections.
Everyone should wiggle it just a little bit…
A man stated, “I find myself currently over here close to, Hawthorne Bridge. I believe it to be right between Hawthorne Bridge and Burnside Bridge. But I’ve been wondering where this large crowd of agitators has been coming from for the last 90 days. And I think I discovered where such a large crowd of agitators can house themselves and stage themselves for such a long period of time and still be able to be so close to the center of action every single night. This is a war encampment. A number of these individuals have been sent to Kenosha. But this is a legitimate issue right here, I would say.
This is funded by the city. And what it houses is absolute anarchists, people that refuse to conform and cause damage every single night and then get to come back and they’re housed and given money and protected under the same rights and liberties that they spit upon.”
In a tweet on Tuesday, Bishop Rick Stika of Knoxville said “It really confuses me that both Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi time and time again state that they are faithful Catholics and yet promote unlimited abortion as well as deny so many of the teachings of our faith,” he added that “Nancy stated that she will no longer support the Hyde Amendment.”
The Catholic Church considers abortion (murder) such a grave evil, in fact, that it is one of the very few sins punishable by immediate and automatic excommunication.
However, LGBT Jesuit Father James Martin rushed to the defense of Biden and Pelosi, insisting that a bishop has no right to question the “personal faith” of Catholic politicians.
Father Martin also said that the bishop’s characterization of the two Democrats was inaccurate, suggesting that the only point on which Biden and Pelosi dissent from Catholic teaching is the matter of abortion.
As Mark Zuckerberg continues to cave to the ‘woke mob’ driving the corporate advertiser boycott of his business, Facebook has reportedly removed several pages related to the “Patriot Prayer” group, a conservative group that has been routinely identified as “white supremacist” by left-wing reporters with an agenda.
Described by RT as “a mainstay at pro-gun rallies and street protests”, the group received attention from the national media last weekend when a rumored member was shot and killed by a man who described himself as “100% Antifa” in an interview. The shooter, Michael Forest Reinoehl, was himself shot and killed by police after confessing to the shooting in an interview with – who else? – Vice News.
A Facebook spokesman told Reuters the company pulled the pages as part of “ongoing efforts to remove Violent Social Militias from our platform.” That’s presumably a reference to street brawls between members of the group and armed left-wing groups.
Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson tweeted about the victim, addressing him by the name “Jay”, and claiming to have known him through the group. Gibson’s own personal page was also caught up in the ban.
He raged at Facebook for the timing of the ban: “Antifa groups murdered my friend while he was walking home, and instead of the multibillion dollar company banning Portland antifa pages they ban Patriot Prayer and myself,” Gibson said in a statement on Friday. “People can sign up at PatriotPrayerUSA.com for future events.”
Facebook updated its policies last month, promising to ban any groups who “pose significant risks to public safety, including offline anarchist groups that support violent acts amidst protests, US-based militia organizations and QAnon.”
While Facebook says it removed over 980 groups, 520 pages and 160 ads from the platform under the new guidelines, including “some who may identify as Antifa,” conservative critics argue the bans skew in one direction and largely target those right-of-center, despite the platform’s claims of impartiality.
The shooting in Portland hasn’t gotten nearly as much media attention as a shooting allegedly perpetrated by 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who had ‘blue lives matter’ posts on his social media pages – prompting the media to label him a white supremacist as well.
Zuckerberg has been doing everything he can to appease the growing crowd of pundits blaming him for single-handedly destroying American democracy by hoodwinking the American people into electing Trump. All of this, of course, was orchestrated by the grand puppet master himself, Vladimir Putin. Earlier this week, he announced a ban on “new” political ads during the final week before the election, a completely technical and, as far as we can tell, uunremarkable, change that serves only to stand as evidence that the company “did something” to take on this imaginary threat.
In 2017, the Gateway Pundit‘s Cassandra Fairbanks published a claim from an anonymous former Secret Service agent who said that they had to protect female agents from Joe Biden due to “Weinstein level stuff,” referring to notable rapist and Democrat, Harvey Weinstein.
“We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses,” said the former agent, adding “He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible.”
The agent also claimed Biden would walk around naked in the VP residence.
“According to the source, a Secret Service agent once got suspended for a week in 2009 for shoving Biden after he cupped his girlfriend’s breast while the couple was taking a photo with him. The situation got so heated, the source told Cassandra Fairbanks, that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President.”
Here’s why you’re reading this now…
While the MSM simply ignored the alleged breast-grabbing incident, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request...
…and were told the file was destroyed.
In other words, something happened, and the Secret Service just confirmed it.
Via Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, made on May 12, 2020, sought:
All records related to a reported incident in 2009 in which a United States Secret Service Agent reportedly was involved in an altercation with, or attempted to strike, then Vice President Joe Biden during a photo opportunity.
The records sought shall include, but not be limited to, witness statements, the Agent’s statement, victim’s statement, alleged perpetrator’s statement, incident reports, investigative reports, communications among USSS personnel regarding the incident, and disciplinary records related to the incident for the Agent in question.
In a July 13, 2020 response to Judicial Watch’s request, the Secret Service appeared to confirm that a file on the alleged incident existed at some point, asserting, “[T]here are no responsive records or documents pertaining to your request in our files,” because “the above mentioned file(s) has been destroyed” due to “retention standards.” The Secret Service added that, “[n]o additional information is available.” It did not deny the incident had occurred. In its lawsuit, Judicial Watch intends to test the Secret Service’s assertion that it destroyed all records about the incident.
“We had not been able to confirm whether the report about the alleged altercation might be true until the Secret Service itself suggested it destroyed records about the incident,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
A very successful businessman had a meeting with his new son-in-law.
“I welcome you into the family!” said the man. “To show you how much we care for you, I am making you a 50-50 partner in my business. All you have to do is go to the factory every day and learn the operation.”
The son-in-law interrupted. “I hate factories. I can’t stand the noise.”
“I see,” replied the father-in-law. “Well, then you’ll work in the office and take charge of some of the operations.”
“I hate office work,” said the son-in-law. “I can’t stand being stuck behind a desk.”
“Wait a minute,” said the father-in-law. “I just made you half owner of a money-making industry, but you don’t like factories, and won’t work in an office. What am I going to do with you?”
“Easy,” said the son-in-law. “Buy me out.”
The FBI has warned Chicago-area law enforcement that nearly three-dozen street gangs “have formed a pact to ‘shoot on-site any cop that has a weapon drawn on any subject in public’,” reports ABC7.
According to an August 26 ‘situation information report’ from Chicago-based FBI officials, “members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in performance of their official duties. The purpose of which is to catch on film an officer drawing his/her weapon on any subject and the subsequent ‘shoot on-site’ of said officer, in order to garner national media attention.”
Alerts based on police intelligence, no matter how unspecific, are frequently distributed to law enforcement agencies according to investigators, especially when they involve threats to officers. The FBI’s “Potential Activity Alert” is from “a contact whose reporting is limited and whose reliability cannot be determined.” That could mean the information came from a police street source, a cooperating witness in an ongoing case, or from discussions overheard on a wiretap or other surveillance recording. –ABC7
According to CPD Superintendent David Brown, there is an overall “sense of lawlessness” felt by local police, and the ‘danger to police officers is real and increasing.’
“I think it’s bigger than a suggestion,” said Brown. “I think 51 officers being shot at or shot in one year, I think that quadruples any previous year in Chicago’s history. So I think it’s more than a suggestion that people are seeking to do harm to cops.“
The alleged pact comes amid national protests over several high-profile incidents between black suspects and police officers which has resulted in arson, looting, murder and other violent acts in cities across the country sparked by the death of George Floyd – a black suspect who died in police custody after an officer knelt on his neck for over eight minutes.
As ABC7 notes, the warning comes after 54 people were shot in the windy city last weekend – including two Chicago PD officers who are expected to live, while 10 victims died according to the report. That said, there is no indication that the officers were targeted as part of the alleged gang assassination pact described in the FBI alert.
The FBI alert, headlined “Pact Made by People Nation Gang Factions to ‘Shoot On-Site’ Any Police Officer with a Weapon Drawn” lists street gangs that have become well-known in Chicago the past five decades, from the Latin Kings and Vice Lords to the El Rukns and Black P Stones.
Supt. Brown said on Monday the spike in attacks on police makes it clear to him that “people are seeking to do harm to cops.”
“We need police officers and as community members we need to push back fervently against lawlessness,” Brown said. –ABC7
(Dean Weingarten)- At about 11:45 p.m., on 25 August, 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse was in possession of a Smith & Wesson 15 (AR15 type rifle) in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a period of civil unrest and rioting. Several businesses had already been burned. According to his lawyers, Rittenhouse was in Kenosha working as a lifeguard. He stayed on to help remove graffiti from the high school. He found that a local business needed help to guard it from the rioters. He and a friend obtained rifles for that purpose. An armed adult male of of about 30 years old was said to be with him shortly before the attacks against him occurred.
Rittenhouse may have aroused the anger of Rosenbaum when Rittenhouse put out a dumpster fire the rioters were attempting to push against a police car.
The fire extinguisher possibility is covered at about the 3:40 mark in this youtube broadcast.
Joseph Rosenbaum was recorded as taunting armed people who were protecting businesses by shouting at them: “Shoot me n*gga! Shoot me n*gga!”
Rosenbaum, a registered sex offender, was reported by Richard McGinnis as attempting to close with Kyle Rittenhouse, but Rittenhouse made a “juke” move and started running from Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum and other individuals started chasing Rittenhouse. Rosenbaum threw an object inside a plastic bag at Rittenhouse. A shot was fired by an unknown person as the chase moved across the parking lot.
Rosenbaum closed with Rittenhouse as Rittenhouse turned. Rosenbaum attempted to grab the rifle and Rittenhouse fired three or four times.
According to the Milwaukee Medical Examiner’s office, as reported in the criminal complaint, Rosenbaum was hit four times, a shot to the lateral left thigh, a shot to the groin, fracturing the pelvis, a shot to the back, perforating the right lung and liver, and a graze on the head. Rosenbaum was declared deceased at the hospital.
McGinnis, a reporter who was following Rosenbaum, attempted to give first aid as Rittenhouse came back and made a phone call. The call was not to 911 as previously speculated. The call was to a friend of Rittenhouse.
As more people approached, Rittenhouse ran back across the parking lot. About a minute later, he is running northbound on Sheridan Road, pursued by a group of several people. Shouts can be heard of “Beat him up!” “Hey, he shot him!” “Get him, Get that dude!” A male runs up behind Rittenhouse and swings at him, making contact and knocking off his hat.
Rittenhouse runs another six seconds, trips, and falls down. Another person commands “Get his ass!”
At this point, several people who have been pursuing Rittenhouse effect a coordinated attack. Rittenhouse is able to raise the rifle while down on his back in the street. At least two pursuers stop and back off.
A large man in a dark jacket and light pants runs at Rittenhouse from Southwest on Sheridan Rd, attempting to perform a flying kick at Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse manages to turn and fire two shots. The first attacker lands on the pavement and then hobbles off. He has not been identified. Because of the limping retreat, it may be he was slightly wounded.
At the same time the first attacker is attempting to kick Rittenhouse, the second attacker at the scene is rapidly closing from the west side of the street.
The second attacker, later identified as Anthony Huber, armed with a skateboard, has already started to run at Kyle Rittenhouse. Huber has a long history of violence and has been convicted of domestic violence. Huber strikes Rittenhouse with the skateboard less than a second after the flying kick fails. There is a good picture of the event at greatgameindia.com.
Rittenhouse is able to fire the rifle and recover control. As Huber staggers away, fatally shot, the third attacker, Gaige Grosskreutz, puts on the brakes and stops.
Rittenhouse has his rifle pointed in the general direction of Grosskreutz.
Grosskreutz, was previously convicted of possessing a firearm while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. It has been reported Grosskreutz was a convicted felon. The misdemeanor firearm charge is the highest conviction for him which I have seen confirmed. I have not seen any evidence that Grosskreutz is a convicted felon.
Grosskreutz charges at Rittenhouse again, semi-automatic pistol in Grosskreutz right hand. Rittenhouse shoots Grosskreutz in the right arm, and Grosskreutz retreats. The entire coordinated attack by the five or more men is over in five seconds. Three attackers engaged in combat with direct threats. At least two others, probably more, were deterred by Rittenhouse’ control of the rifle.
There is a very clear still of the three attackers in one frame at the milwaukeeindependent.com.
Numerous felonies appear to have been committed against Rittenhouse by the three attackers. One attacker, Anthony Huber, is dead.
What charges might be brought against the other two attackers?
As there were multiple, coordinated attacks, they could be charged with conspiracy to commit a felony, under Wisconsin statutes 939.31.
The first, unknown attacker, clearly committed battery against Kyle Rittenhouse with the flying kick attack; because it was countered, the damage may not have been great, making it a Class A misdemeanor under Wisconsin statutes 940.19.
Huber committed a battery, but Huber is dead, so he will not be charged. Because he died, however, in the commission of a crime, the other two combatants may be charged with felony murder, Wisconsin statute 940.30. All three attackers were acting in concert, so the felony murder statute is likely to apply.
Grosskreutz could be charged under the endangering safety by use of a deadly weapon, statute, 941.20, for his actions with the semi-automatic pistol. 941.20 has an exception for defense of privilege of self-defense, or defense of others, which Grosskreutz might claim, and which Rittenhouse is already claiming in his lawyers’ statement.
The Kenosha County Prosecutor has decided to press charges against Kyle Rittenhouse, and not against his attackers. This shows a reluctance, almost certainly due to political pressure, not to charge the rioters. All three attackers appear to be from Wisconsin, so there is no interstate nexus for federal charges, unless it can be shown that they received funding or direction from out of state, which would be difficult to prove.
The case shows the incredible power of prosecutors to decide who will be charged, and who will not. The voters have the ultimate authority to place or remove prosecutors. Prosecutors are almost never removed unless their crimes are blatant.
Kenosha County District Attorney Michael D. Graveley may be contacted at (262) 653-2400. Email can be sent through a email wizard at the Kenosha County website.
The Assistant DA who signed the criminal complaint against Kyle Rittenhouse is Angelina Gabriele. Her email is: email@example.com
(Sundance) It’s time to be brutally honest and face the enemy as a united nation. Trump supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson was murdered on the streets of Portland Oregon. Danielson’s murder was caught on camera, and everyone, including thousands of people who watch social media, know exactly who killed him, a man named Michael Reinoehl.
However, despite everyone knowing exactly who carried out a politically motivated assassination, Reinoehl (pictured left in white T-shirt with his daughter holding a baseball bat) has not been arrested.
The Portland police, the FBI and the United States Department of Justice have not arrested him; and the only logical conclusion to be gained from that reluctance is that Antifa supporter Reinoehl is also a supporter of Black Lives Matter and Joe Biden. Therefore no-one does anything.
When you accept this reality, it is only then that we can start to fathom just how seriously screwed up the U.S. system of justice has become.
If you support Trump you are a disposable statistic; however, if you support the mob all efforts will be undertaken to protect you from the consequences of your own violent action.
This is the absolute worst scenario for our nation…. death and murder are now defined by politics. However, this isn’t the first time this has happened, it is just the most transparently obvious; and a major escalation amid years of politically motivated violence.
Now we are entering an era where Thunderdome rules apply on the streets of U.S. cities.
In Provo, Utah, a group of armed Black Lives Matter terrorists surrounded a vehicle at an intersection. The driver would not exit the vehicle to be beaten by the mob. One of the BLM activists pulled a gun and demanded the driver come out, when the driver refused the terrorist opened fire shooting the driver. The driver hits the gas and tries to escape, the terrorist fires through the rear window as another armed terrorist joins the fray from the opposite side of the street. WATCH:
According to local media, police are determining whether to charge the driver of the vehicle for not complying with the mob’s demand for the beating; thereby putting the other terrorists at risk.
“It’s unclear if the driver of the SUV who was shot is facing any possible charge for driving through the protesters after being shot.”
Here’s an enhanced video of the incident:
UTAH – “Several protesters began crowding around the vehicle,” said John Geyerman, Provo Police deputy chief. “The male protester ran toward the SUV on the passenger side, pointed a handgun at the driver, and shot one round through the window. The driver who was struck by the bullet accelerated, trying to leave the situation. The same protester ran after the vehicle and fired a second shot that went through the rear passenger window.”
Officials said the same man who allegedly fired the shots into the SUV also approached another vehicle and broke the window with a handgun.
The driver was taken to Utah Valley Hospital.
Police are looking for the alleged shooter and are asking for anyone with videos or pictures of the incident, or any other information, to contact PPD at 801-852-6210. (link)
In another recent example a woman driving with her daughter through Fredericksburg, Virginia, is attacked by a mob of Black Lives Matter terrorists. Panicked the lady calls 911 for help, the response from the 911 operator is to chastise the woman and tell her to “call city hall” with her complaint.
This is a prime example of what Joe Biden Democrats support. WATCH:
…And in yet another recent example if the random victim does not accept the beating, they are deemed a racist.
The media are allies in this BLM project. Anyone who does not willfully submit to the BLM effort, is castigated as the source of their own brutality.
The example in Michigan ends with a familiar sentence: “Prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to support a hate-crime charge.”
[Michigan] – Michigan authorities have charged an 18-year-old black man for the “unprovoked,” caught-on-video assault of a white Macy’s manager, officials said.
Damire Palmer, of Mount Morris Township, faces one count of felony assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder for the June 26 attack on the employee inside the Flint department store. Palmer is still in the wind.
“This was an unprovoked attack on a Macy’s employee,” said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton in a statement. “This behavior as seen on the video is unacceptable, it is criminal, and it cannot be allowed.”
In surveillance video that prosecutors obtained from Macy’s, Palmer walks around the store then approaches the manager from behind and clocks him in the head, knocking him to the floor, officials said.
While the manager is on the ground, Palmer pummels him, the footage shows, according to authorities. Palmer then exits the store with his brother. (read more)
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
As the Bible teaches, God does punish his children in order to make us grow spiritually. If we do not stand against evil, we will enter a period of bondage. If that is what it takes for us to appreciate the freedoms that God intended, let us pray for as short a period as possible. I pray that we temper our anger at our enemies with Godly principles in the upcoming war.
“Immunotherapy: The Battle Within” is a documentary film about the past, present and future of cancer immunotherapy, a treatment that provokes your body’s immune system into attacking cancer cells.
This film shows how the first cancer immunotherapy treatment was invented by William B. Coley, MD in the 1890s. Dr. Coley, while working at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, had hundreds of documented cures of people with ‘incurable’ cancer in the early part of the 20th century. This film looks closely at why Coley’s treatment ended up being banned, and how cancer immunotherapy treatment and research disappeared for over 100 years.
Fast forward to 2018, James P. Allison, PhD, a research scientist at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, wins the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his development of the world’s first immune checkpoint inhibitor, which is a type of cancer immunotherapy!
What happened? Why are we now seeing a resurgence of interest in immunotherapy? Who is using it around the world, and where is this treatment headed?
Immunotherapy: The Battle Within, explains how and why cancer immunotherapy was practically erased from history and is now at the very forefront of cancer treatment. The film also takes you on a virtual tour of independent cancer clinics around the world that utilize variations of cancer immunotherapy to treat the dreaded disease.
It’s time for Chelsea Clinton, one of the most pampered and coddled people alive today to lead by example:
-Stop flying on private jets
-Give up your domestic staff
-Clean your own bedroom
-Return the money your family stole from starving Hattians
-Close all the doors of nepotism open to you; your jobs, perks and extravagant salaries based upon being white and a member of the Clinton crime family.
(Megan Henney) When the Supreme Court resolved the 2000 presidential election in favor of George W. Bush, former Vice President Al Gore conceded defeat — something he doesn’t believe President Trump will do if he loses to Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 election.
In an interview with Reuters on Tuesday, Gore, a Democrat who served as Bill Clinton’s vice president, accused Trump of “attempting to put his knee on the neck of democracy” by attacking mail-in ballots and absentee voting.
“He seems to have no compunctions at all about trying to rip apart the social fabric and the political equilibrium of the American people, and he’s strategically planting doubts in advance,” Gore said. He called it a “despicable strategy.”
Gore narrowly lost the 2000 election to Bush, but the results remained in limbo for more than a month after Election Day, when the conservative-majority Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against Gore’s request for a Florida recount (Bush won the state by just 537 votes).
Gore, who won the nationwide popular vote but lost in the Electoral College, conceded the election to Bush on Dec 13.
“It turns out there’s no intermediate step between a final Supreme Court decision and violent revolution,” Gore said. “It seemed to me that respect for the rule of law and respect for the needs of American democracy were the orders of the day.
He added: “You can always explore the option of dragging something out, tearing the country apart, mobilizing partisans against one another in the streets and all of that, but it was not a wise course for our country.”
If Trump lost the election but refused to accept the results, Gore said he believes the military would intervene. He noted that under the parameters of the Constitution, Trump’s last day in office is Jan. 20, 2021.
“It’s important to say that it’s really not up to him. I hear people saying, ‘Well, would he accept that decision?’ Well, it doesn’t matter because it’s not up to him,” he said. “Because at noon on January 20th, if a new president is elected… the police force, the Secret Service, the military, all of the executive branch officers, will respond to the command and the direction of the new president.”
Millions of Americans are expected to vote by mail this November due to the coronavirus pandemic, increasing the chances the winner of the presidential race won’t immediately be known on election night. State election officials in several key battleground states have warned it could take days to count all of the votes.
Trump has repeatedly claimed without evidence that mail-in voting would allow for widespread fraud, which he reiterated Monday during the Republican National Convention.
However, Ellen Weintraub, commissioner at the Federal Election Commission, and other voting experts, have said that voting by mail is safe and secure.
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at Nancy Pelosi’s house. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota. All three go with a California official to examine the fence.
The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. “Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.”
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.”
The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$2,700.”
The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?”
The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence.”
“Done!” replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how stimulus spending works.
I wonder what happens next when the silent majority finally figures out that we can’t solve our problems with politicians and elections?
Democrat and Republican In Name Only politicians (enemies from within) have launched a coordinated national level commie insurgency that will not end until they either seize power over remainder of the nation they do not yet control or weaken America enough that foreign invaders who are laying in wait, led by China, Drug Cartels and Russia make their big move.
“This process cannot stop itself, its like a boulder gaining momentum until it crushes everything in its path and meets its final destination”
The first hour of the above presentation is also excellent. Here it is…
(Robert Spencer) While Leftists have frequently tried to tie Richard Spencer to President Trump and his followers, portraying his advocacy of a “white ethnostate” and the complete separation of the races as the true heart of Trump’s program, the real Richard Spencer tweeted:
“I plan to vote for Biden and a straight Democratic ticket. It’s not based on ‘accelerationism’ or anything like that; the liberals are clearly more competent people.”
(Stacey Lennox) The debate over hydroxychloroquine has been faded from the forefront as big tech has worked to suppress information and silence the voices of doctors and researchers promoting it. However, it appears the controversy over the drug has encouraged some senators to take a closer look, and it seems they are asking the FDA the right questions.
Senators Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Mike Lee (R-Utah) sent a letter to FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn explicitly asking about the agency’s handling of information regarding the drug and its use during the pandemic.
Doctors and researchers advocating for hydroxychloroquine are recommending it be used in high-risk outpatients.
Texas Congressman Louis Hohmert, who was recently diagnosed positive for COVID-19, tweeted just this morning about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine:
Hydroxychloroquine protocols worked for me. Americans suffering from the Wuhan Virus deserve the right to consult with their doctors and try HCQ if deemed a safe and appropriate fit. Keep Big Govt out of this. Thank you Dr. Risch for your work and research on this.
In the letter to Hahn, the senators are asking about specific actions the agency has taken regarding hydroxychloroquine.The current FDA guidance is that it should not be used outside the hospital setting for COVID-19, and the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) has been withdrawn. Given the safety profile of the medication and the fact it is used daily on an outpatient basis around the world for malaria prevention, malaria treatment, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus, this guidance is ridiculous on its face.
The recommended duration of hydroxychloroquine treatment for COVID-19 is between five and seven days at FDA approved dosages. In a sane world, a doctor may prescribe drugs off-label at approved dosages if they think a medication may be useful for a patient’s symptoms. However, 2020 is not sane, and now the FDA interference has led to medical boards, hospital systems, and politicians banning the use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19. These actions are unprecedented in the doctor-patient relationship.
Finally, these senators are standing up for that relationship and demanding clarity from the FDA. From the letter:
However, we have heard from licensed physicians that have had a far different experience with the FDA’s approach. The physicians are concerned about the FDA’s decision to revoke the March 28th EUA for HCQ and CQ for treatment of COVID-19. They have described the clear differences between inpatient and outpatient treatments and how this decision has affected their ability to treat patients in different settings. The physicians have warned that the FDA’s EUA revocation of HCQ and CQ has led to misinformation and confusion across the country. Some states have restricted the ability of physicians to write and pharmacies to fill HCQ and CQ prescriptions under longstanding and well-established authority to prescribe FDA approved drugs off-label with a patient’s informed consent and according to their clinical judgement.
To better understand the FDA’s actions, the letter requests four specific pieces of information:
These requests are a kick in the derriere to the bureaucracy. It is unconscionable for the FDA not to clarify their role in the practice of medicine and even worse for them to remain silent in the face of other entities trying to interfere with it. While it does not appear they have ever made a statement like the one the senators are requesting, hopefully, one will be forthcoming.
It would be even more concerning if the agency withdrew the EUA based on the debunked Lancet study and has done nothing to correct their position. In an extensive search, I can find no studies indicating that short-term outpatient use of hydroxychloroquine at approved dosages is dangerous or deadly. It will be surprising if the FDA has one.
Dr. Harvey Risch, an epidemiologist from Yale, has done a review of these studies and arrived at the conclusion that treatment with hydroxychloroquine is effective for high-risk outpatients. Dr. Risch told Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty, and Levin” Sunday that it was some of the most convincing data he has seen in his career:
Clearly, President Trump has not given up on the potential this drug combination may hold. Dr. Risch’s assessment is clear. For high-risk patients over 65 or with pre-existing conditions, the outpatient use of the hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin combination has shown a significant reduction in hospitalizations and death rates.
He asserts that we have let politics overrule science, and it is costing thousands of lives. Hopefully, senators pressuring the FDA will cause significant movement and clarity. The FDA owes its response by the end of business tomorrow. If the misinformation can be effectively cleared up, it will be a game-changer. The senators must continue to press the FDA and restore the doctor-patient relationship.
(Jason Ditz) In another embarrassment for US training programs for international forces, this past week’s coup in Mali found itself linked to an American training program. Colonel Assimi Goita, the new dictator of Mali, graduated from US training courses.
That’s a problem for Washington, also as photos of Goita were featured heavily on US military sites regarding the training operations. The military has so far avoided comment on the matter, though some media are reporting that the photographs were disappearing from the sites when the news started to break.
It looks bad, but also isn’t shocking. Mali’s last coup, in 2012, saw the exact same thing, with Captain Amadou Sanogo having been through six training missions with the US before the coup.
Meanwhile, Foreign Policy reports that “The United States has halted all security assistance training and support for Malian military forces that carried out a coup in the West African country after new details emerged that the coup was orchestrated in part by military officers who received training from the U.S. military.”
And further, the report continues:
The Washington Post first reported that Goita, the head of the new junta, was trained by U.S. and European forces, including U.S. Special Operations forces. Lt. Col. Anton Semelroth, a Pentagon spokesperson, told Foreign Policy in a statement that the U.S. military is “looking into other Malians who have participated in U.S. training and, though counter to that training, may have played a role in the recent mutiny.”
The number of coup leaders, war criminals, and general bad actors in the training program has raised concerns that the Pentagon is too heavily focused on efficiency and fostering relationships with Western military bureaucracies, without focus enough on respect for civilian governance and democracies.
“Let the leftist cities burn,” some people say. Initially, I was one of them. However, the Cultural Revolution taking place isn’t stopping in Seattle or New York. According to the latest census data, Kenosha, Wisconsin’s population of 169,000 is 76 percent white and only 7 percent black. The city is prosperous, boasts a streetcar system despite its relatively small size, and has several museums and cultural attractions. It’s not Chicago, Baltimore, or Portland. Nonetheless, it was in flames last night because it’s impossible to enforce the law against blacks.
(Kerry McDonald) As remote learning creates more distance between school districts and students, school and state officials are clinging to control however they can. From sending Child Protective Services (CPS) agents to investigate charges of neglect in homes where children missed Zoom classes last spring, to proposing “child well-being checks” in homes this fall, government schools and related agencies are panicking over parents having increased influence over their children’s care and education during the pandemic.
A front page article in Boston Sunday Globe days ago describes the experiences of several parents who were interrogated by CPS agents last spring when their children missed remote classes or failed to submit homework assignments amidst pandemic-related school shutdowns. Some parents didn’t have Internet access and were blindsided by the CPS investigations of “virtual truancy.” One Latina mother featured in the Globe story is Em Quiles, who, like many parents last spring, scrambled to care for her children and continue to work during tremendous upheaval and uncertainty.
According to the Globe:
Then in June, Quiles was stunned to receive a call from the state’s Department of Children and Families. The school had accused Quiles of neglect, she was told, because the 7-year-old missed class and homework assignments.
“I couldn’t believe it,” she said.
Quiles lived one of the worst nightmares for a parent: A neglect charge, if substantiated, can lead to removing a child from their home.
While most of the parents featured in the Globe story were ultimately exonerated, previous interaction with CPS, even if unfounded, can act as a Scarlet Letter for parents, haunting them for years to come. More troubling, parents singled out for CPS enforcement are disproportionately low-income and minority, often lacking the resources to defend themselves against government over reach. According to the Globe: “Most of the families caught up in remote learning allegations are Latino or Black, groups that are likely to be over represented in state foster care at all times.”
School districts across the country have a history of activating CPS against parents who stray from a district’s command and control. An in-depth 2018 investigative report by The Hechinger Report and HuffPost revealed that schools increasingly use child protective services as a “weapon against parents” — especially parents who lack the means to fight back.
Kamala Harris: “We Are Putting Parents On Notice”
Truancy has long been a trigger for CPS investigations, and now virtual truancy seems poised to accelerate these practices during the pandemic. This is particularly concerning because, just as in typical truancy cases, virtual truancy is often prompted by factors other than parental neglect. Special needs students and students with disabilities or health conditions may have more school absences, and they may find virtual learning to be uniquely challenging. A 2019 HuffPost article entitled The Human Costs of Kamala Harris’ War on Truancy, found that strict truancy laws and enforcement terrorized families, with parents being pulled out of their homes in handcuffs and sent to jail.
Cheree Peoples, one of the parents spotlighted in the HuffPot piece, whose daughter missed school frequently due to sickle cell anemia, was awakened in the early hours by police officers who arrested her for truancy. She told the HuffPost: “You would swear I had killed somebody.”
The HuffPost article, revealed that then Democratic presidential candidate and now the presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, was responsible for much of the heightened aggression toward parents regarding truancy. As California’s attorney general, Harris was a crusader against truancy and was instrumental in toughening criminal prosecution of parents whose children missed too much school. According to HuffPost, Harris “persuaded the state legislature to adopt harsher penalties for truancy. Under the new law, the parent or guardian of a young, truant child could face a fine of $2,500 or more — or one year in jail. Harris pushed hard for the law as she was running for attorney general, and it passed just as she won the election. ‘We are putting parents on notice,’ Harris said at her 2011 inauguration.”
Proposed Child Well Being Checks During COVID-19
Criminal investigations of child neglect tied to virtual truancy are set to skyrocket this fall, as school districts across the country adopt remote learning plans. Worried that parents can’t be trusted to care for their own children, some education officials have proposed large scale “child well-being checks,” by government agents. Earlier this month, the Tennessee Department of Education announced that it would be performing these well-being checks on children across the state. This plan created such an uproar among Tennessee parents and conservative lawmakers that the proposed initiative was withdrawn and its guidelines removed from the education department’s website.
Despite this immediate victory, all parents should remain on alert. School and state officials, aided by high-profile academics, will likely seek to increase CPS involvement in family affairs during remote learning and beyond. Elizabeth Bartholet, the Harvard Law School professor who made headlines last spring when she called for a presumptive ban on homeschooling, spoke out last week in favor of increased CPS action this fall. In an interview with Harvard Law Today, Bartholet said: “My overall general recommendation is that educators and CPS agencies need to recognize the level of problems that kids at home are now facing in terms of risk of both education and maltreatment, and come up with some creative new solutions.”
In the interview, Bartholet acknowledged the heightened interest in independent homeschooling, as more parents choose to forgo district learning this fall and consider separating from their school district going forward. According to Bartholet: “Roughly three percent of the population is now home schooled. Let’s say that increases to six percent post-COVID. Legislators and other policymakers may look at that and say, ‘Wow, now this is a big phenomenon, it may continue to grow. Of course, it shouldn’t be just this lawless world out there with no rules and regulations and oversight. Of course, this should be part of our overall regulated educational system.’”
As I’ve written previously, homeschooling should not be part of the overall regulated education system. It is a form of private education that is separate and distinct from state schooling, and many parents are now finding that they prefer homeschooling over other education options. Parents are pulling their children out of school this fall in record numbers, dissatisfied with school reopening plans and aiming for greater educational freedom and flexibility. So many parents submitted online intent to home school forms in North Carolina last month that it crashed the state’s nonpublic education website. Perhaps not surprisingly, a recent report by a law professor at North Carolina’s Duke University called for greater regulation and oversight of the state’s growing ranks of home schoolers.
As parents pull away from state-controlled education and assume greater responsibility for their children’s learning, the state will hasten efforts to maintain and expand its authority through its monopoly on the use of force. From virtual truancy claims and increased CPS investigations that disproportionately target poor parents and families of color, to calls for child well-being checks and more homeschooling regulations, the state will not willingly yield control of children’s education to parents.
Parents should strongly reject these heavy-handed efforts to interfere with family life during and after the pandemic, and be especially vigilant about helping low-income and minority parents to resist as well. Minimizing state power while maximizing individual liberty is the hallmark of a free society. Now more than ever, parents are exercising and securing their freedom to raise and educate their children as they choose. Parents may have been put on notice, but they are pushing back and opting out.
DARPAtv live-streamed AlphaDogfight Trials Competition on Thursday (Aug. 20), which featured an AI-controlled virtual fighter jet beating a human pilot in a series of simulated dogfights.
The AI-system, developed by Heron Systems, a Maryland-based defense contractor, beat one of the Air Force’s top General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots, reported Breaking Defense.
Fully-autonomous fighter jets are years away, but the Air Force and DARPA appear to be honing in on the possibilities of integrating artificial intelligence systems into combat flying machines. The live event was streamed on several platforms, including YouTube and Zoom, which shows AI systems have the ability in 2020 to operate an aircraft with skill and in a one-on-one combat scenario, out-gunning a human pilot, even though it was in a simulation.
One of the hosts during the simulated dogfight noted the AI system has “superhuman” shooting capabilities that produced an edge over the human pilot.
Video: AlphaDogfight Trials Final Event…
Timothy Grayson, director of the Strategic Technology Office at DARPA, described the simulation as successful and said it’s a victory for humans and machines to team up for combat:
“I think what we’re seeing today is the beginning of something I’m going to call human-machine symbiosis… Let’s think about the human sitting in the cockpit, being flown by one of these AI algorithms as truly being one weapon system, where the human is focusing on what the human does best [like higher order strategic thinking] and the AI is doing what the AI does best,” Grayson said.
While fully autonomous fighter jets conducting dogfights are years outs, if not at the end of the decade, what’s more, plausible, in the next five years, is AI integrating into the flight systems of fighter jets, especially stealth ones, to assist pilots during complex combat situations.
Originally authored by Mike Adams at Natural News and discussed by he and NC Scout in the latest interview. Here’s more on the air-to-air missile uncovered in Florida and the private military company which had it in its possession. This was researched by my own guys and its all verified through their own public statements. All I can say at this point is that it reminds me of the shady Colonel and the antagonist Senator from the movie Shooter.
“There are no sides. There’s no Sunnis and Shiites. There’s no Democrats and Republicans. There’s only HAVES and HAVE-NOTS.” -NCS
As you may recall, a live radar-guided, air-to-air missile was found last week on the tarmac of the Lakeland, Florida airport. We analyzed the serial number and data details of this missile and found that it was a “Matra R530F” missile, made by French weapons contractors and designed to be used on French-made mirage fighter jets. (See photos below.)
As we pointed out in a previous article, this missile had a live warhead and was equipped with propulsion fuel. It merely needed to be attached to a Mirage fighter jet and it could be launched against any aircraft flying over the skies of America. We speculated that even Air Force One could be theoretically brought down by this missile.
Other media reports have confirmed that the Matra R530F missile was shipped into the United States via Amazon Air, which is an air cargo operation owned by Amazon, which is of course largely owned by Jeff Bezos who also owns the Washington Post, a CIA-run propaganda disinfo publisher that has conspired with the deep state to try to overthrow the President of the United States of America (Donald Trump). So when we “speculate” about a missile possibly being used to shoot down Air Force One, it really doesn’t involve much speculation at all. Deep state operatives have already said they plan to remove Trump from office by force, and treasonous traitor Jeff Bezos would no doubt be more than happy to provide the missiles.
This particular missile was acquired from Jordanian’s military and shipped into the United States, no doubt illegally. The entire coverage of this missile has been hush-hush from a national security point of view, and no one has been charged with smuggling this weapon into the country as far as the public knows.
The markings say: MIS A/A MP EM F20 S520 Lot 82, Serial Number 5185
Now, our former military sources have conducted a deeper investigation into the possible deployment of this missile, and they’ve discovered something rather shocking. In the same city where the missile was found — Lakeland, Florida — there exists a private corporation that offers “contract air support” services, including air-to-air missions, air-to-ground support, fleet missile defense and other contract services. Importantly, this corporation operates a fleet of over 80 ex-military fighter jets, including the Mirage fighter jet that is capable of carrying the Mantra R530F missile.
The name of the company is Draken International, with the website DrakenIntl.com. And where is this company located?
Draken International is described by Sharp Magazine as, “the world’s largest private tactical air fleet.” As Sharp explains:
Draken’s CEO is Jared Isaacman… He’s amassed a collection of military aircraft that’s already the world’s largest privately owned tactical fleet.
Draken has won every “red air” contract offered by the USAF in the past three years. The company owns 90 fighters and counting, and just announced plans to acquire 20 Mirage F1s from the Spanish Air Force.
According to Draken’s website:
WITH A FLEET OF 150 TACTICAL FIGHTER AIRCRAFT, DRAKEN OWNS AND OPERATES THE WORLD’S LARGEST COMMERCIAL FLEET OF TACTICAL EX-MILITARY AIRCRAFT.
Draken openly talks about their “contract air support” services including “aggressor support” and air-to-air missions, all using ex-military fighter jets.
What are the odds of a live French air-to-air missile being discovered on the tarmac of an airport in the exact same city where a private company exists that offers “contract air support” air-to-air missions and owns and operates nearly two dozen of the French Mirage aircraft capable of firing the very missile that was discovered there?
Draken International claims to own and operate 22 Mirage F1M aircraft, any of which are capable of firing the live missile that was discovered in Lakeland, Florida.
Our concern here isn’t about Draken itself, but rather the possibility that deep state forces plan to perhaps steal a Mirage fighter jet or kidnap family members of Draken board members in order to force the company into giving up a fighter jet that could be armed with missiles to attack the targets of the deep state (such as the White House).
When it comes to the deep state, there’s nothing too lawless or evil for their people to pursue. What we are pointing out is that the resources to acquire a fighter jet, mount a live French missile, and fire it at Air Force One to assassinate President Trump are suddenly converging in the same city: Lakeland, Florida.
This cannot merely be a coincidence.
We believe someone may be targeting Draken and planning to hijack Draken resources to achieve a kinetic attack against the United States of America.
If anybody’s eyebrows were raised about the discovery of the missile in Lakeland, it had to be the top corporate officers of Draken International.
If you read about the officers and board members of Draken, these aren’t a bunch of newbies to the world of military aircraft. The executive team consists of former high-level military officers, DoD weapons specialists, fighter jet combat instructors and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) veterans. The COO of Draken, for example, boasts of, “4000 hours including over 2500 combat and combat support hours in the RC-135V/W Rivet Joint, E-8C JSTARS, and MQ-1B Predator.”
But Draken also has some sketchy partners from the world of weapons manufacturing, including one company that admitted to carrying out felony fraud against the United States of America. Draken counts as its strategic partners “BAE Systems,” a weapons systems contractor that has been steeped in criminal conduct. In 2010, BAE Systems pleaded guilty to “conspiring to defraud the United States of America” and paid a $400 million criminal fine due to its corrupt business practices and unlawful conduct. This was announced by the Dept. of Justice on March 1, 2020, in this press release which states:
BAE Systems plc (BAES) pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia to conspiring to defraud the United States by impairing and impeding its lawful functions, to make false statements about its Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance program, and to violate the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), announced Acting Deputy Attorney General Gary G. Grindler. BAES was sentenced today by U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates to pay a $400 million criminal fine, one of the largest criminal fines in the history of DOJ’s ongoing effort to combat overseas corruption in international business and enforce U.S. export control laws.
Draken International touts its relationship with BAE Systems on its strategic partners web page, stating:
Long standing defense contracting company BAE has teamed with Draken International in efforts to provide the new standard in Contract Air Services… The strategic partnership between BAE Systems and Draken will combine the outstanding and safe past performance of BAE with the extensive fleet of Draken Aircraft and capabilities. This synergy will give unmatched customer service in the aviation defense industry. Confidence and capability are highlighted to ensure on time superior aviation assets service each and every contract with Draken International.
To reiterate, we are not claiming any nefarious intent by Draken International, and it may be that the company is founded by pro-America patriots who love the U.S. Constitution and are making honest money by securing missions around the world to protect worthy assets. Nevertheless, when we see corporations like Draken bragging about partnerships with other weapons companies that have admitted to felony fraud and corruption, it reminds us of how dirty the defense weapons industry really is, and it brings up the obvious question: Does anybody at Draken have a past that could allow them to be blackmailed by the deep state?
Just to make things even more concerning, the new CEO of Draken is Joseph “Joe” Ford, previously of DynCorp, a corporation steeped in criminal activities and child trafficking. Joe Ford is not personally linked to any of this, but he has emerged from a hornet’s nest of nefarious activity at DynCorp. According to a 2017 article in NewsPunch:
A top army General has been arrested on charges of child rape as part of an elite pedophile ring investigation in the U.S.
Former Vice President of DynCorp, Maj. Gen. James Grazioplene, has been charged with multiple counts of child rape which occurred between 1983 and 1989.
His arrest represents the latest in a series of high-level pedophile ring busts by investigators tasked with ending human trafficking and child abuse by the elites in America.
While potentially just a coincidence, Grazioplene’s connections with DynCorp immediately raise a red flag, as the company has been embroiled in numerous high-level scandals involving the exploitation and trafficking of children for sex — dating as far back as the Bosnia conflict during Bill Clinton’s tenure as US President.
Revealing the extreme level of complicity, by DynCorp, in the illegal exploitation of children, former employee, Ben Johnston filed a RICO lawsuit against Dyncorp after he was allegedly fired for reporting human rights abuses by other employees during the Bosnian conflict.
In a 2002 report titled “Dyncorp Disgrace,” Johnston was quoted:
“…None of the girls… were from Bosnia… They were imported in by DynCorp and the Serbian mafia. These guys would say ‘I gotta go to Serbia this weekend topick up three girls.’… “DynCorp leadership was 100 percent in bed with the mafia over there.”
Now, it seems likely that Joe Ford didn’t like what he saw at DynCorp, so he got out of that company as quickly as he could. (He worked there for 4 years and 9 months, according to his LinkedIn profile.) We aren’t accusing Joe Ford of anything at all. He might be a super awesome guy. He’s a U.S. Air Force veteran and previously worked for Beechcraft Defense Company. If I had to take a guess about Joe Ford, he’s probably a very patriotic American who would never intentionally be part of any sort of plot to bring harm to the U.S. President or commit crimes against anyone.
But people like Joe Ford can sometimes be targeted by deep state actors or seditious traitors who attempt to leverage his position at Draken to try to hijack aircraft. That’s why people like Joe Ford need to be running very good personal security teams because he may be at risk of a kidnapping or blackmail attempt to leverage his position at Draken so that deep state operators could gain control of a Mirage aircraft and use it to try to assassinate the President of the United States. In fact, this risk exists for all Draken officers, given that they command very powerful jet fighters which, when armed with the very kind of missile that was just discovered in Lakeland, Florida, turn a “civilian” fleet of aircraft into a literal private air force of missile-toting attack aircraft. (It also brings up the obvious question: How many missiles were not discovered and removed? How many missiles are sitting in a warehouse somewhere in Florida right this very minute, ready to be mounted on fighter jets and fired at the targets named by the deep state?)
And that’s a resource that a lot of deep state, anti-America spooks would like to get their hands on, no doubt. Sadly, treasonous traitor Barack Obama put a lot of seditious military personnel in power during his eight-year attempt to destroy America, and there remain anti-America traitors throughout the U.S. armed forces.
That’s why we urge all the top people at Draken to redouble their corporate security efforts and make sure no outside forces succeed in hijacking the company’s aircraft and using them to carry out assassinations or false flag operations designed to destabilize the United States and throw the November elections into chaos. If I were part of Draken’s security team reading this article, I would immediately initiate an internal audit to identify blackmail vulnerabilities and security weaknesses, given how desperate the anti-America / pro-communist forces have become in their efforts to try to overthrow this nation. I would also take steps to increase the protection of immediate family members of Draken officers and advisors.
We hope that Draken is run by patriots, and we pray that no weapon formed against the United States of America succeeds in its mission. And for the record, once again, we are not accusing Draken of anything at all. The premise of this story is that Draken has resources that treasonous elements who are actively working against America may try to hijack and deploy against America. Therefore, Draken needs to be on alert for its own sake.
Furthermore, we call for President Trump to arrest all traitors and seditious actors operating in the United States of America, which includes the evil deep state traitors — like Brennan, Comey, McCabe and others — who will obviously do anything in their power to overthrow this nation and plunge America into an authoritarian, communist regime run by treasonous Leftists.
Finally, I will reiterate that this website, which I founded, is 100% pro-law enforcement, pro-police and pro-military. We support veterans (and have donated lots of money to veterans groups over the years) and First Responders. We understand the world is a very dangerous place, and we thank God every day for U.S. nuclear submarine commanders, for example, and stealth bomber pilots who can help secure America by letting the enemies of this nation know that if they try to attack us, we will obliterate them. It is only by this mechanism that America can maintain any degree of safety whatsoever, in a world run by insane communists and madmen.
If Draken is operating in support of this mission to protect America and help secure our constitutional republic, then we wish them the greatest success in doing so, and we urge them to maintain the highest security measures to prevent black hat actors from using their resources to potentially harm this nation.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti a couple weeks ago went full Commie and authorized the city to shut off water and power to HOMES and businesses that are hosting large, unauthorized gatherings.
Under Garcetti’s authoritarian Covid-1984 lock down order, large gatherings are prohibited.
On Wednesday Garcetti followed through with his threat and actually authorized the city to disconnect utility service from a home in Hollywood Hills.
Southern California is on day 6 of a blistering heatwave, but Garcetti shut off utilities to a home anyway.
The city did not disclose the home’s address, however the LA Times reported that the home belongs to Tik Tok star Bryce Hall, who has been hosting parties during the Covid lockdown.
LAPD issued 13 party citations last weekend.
A news helicopter hovered over a wedding in Holmby Hills a couple weeks ago after getting ‘tipped off by a neighbor’ and had the wedding shut down.
The news anchors were clutching their pearls because the people who attended the lavish wedding weren’t wearing masks or social distancing.
In contrast, BLM-Antifa terrorists looted, rioted and shut down highways in Los Angeles with no push back or threats from Democrat officials.
The State will not die easy! Anyone who tells you so is likely selling you snake oil while fishing for a monthly donation to their feel-good cause. The State will thrash about, wail, and strike out at anything it can reach before it dies. It will eat its own children and burn its own house before it accepts its demise. Make no mistake; the death of The Beast will be an ugly sight to behold. When it dies its death will burn a memory in the minds of humans that they will not quickly forget. The death pangs of The Great Dragon will scar, not only humanity, but the Earth itself in such a manner that a thousand years of erosion will not heal the wounds, and the longer we put off this fight the more powerful the Beast becomes and the more devastating those wounds will be.
The State, for some 600 generations, has taught humans to act like a herd rather than individuals. We see the predator grab one of us and rather than brave men and women instantly falling upon the predator, beating him senseless, we pull back and bleat or run away. We close our curtains. We change lanes. We blame the victim. But there are some that are slowly remembering who we are. There are those among us who are remembering that we are not a herd to be sheared or eaten. We are individuals capable of empathy for our fellow humans, and we are beginning to stand up to the predators.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
As the Bible teaches, God does punish his children in order to make us grow spiritually. If we do not stand against evil, we will enter a period of bondage. If that is what it takes for us to appreciate the freedoms that God intended, let us pray for as short a period as possible. I pray that we temper our anger at our enemies with Godly principles in the upcoming war.
Listen, damn it.
You are being transformed from a citizen to a resident, to an inmate in the continental prison system known as the former USA.
You are already marked and in process.
And you had better realize that not a single damned politician or politician’s enforcer fears you in the way they must if you are to survive.
Prison rule #1: Never, ever let somebody make you his bitch.
Another death they will bury…
Strength: Obviously, they are proficient in firearms, with NYC being the least proficient with increasing quality of weapon handling as you move west. They have have access to the best technology, although not adept at employing said tech in the most optimum manner. They also have reinforcements at hand within a minute or two away. And firepower. They have access to semi-automatic AR15s and some units (Sergeants) have fully-automatic M4s (LAPD practice). Obviously, they have drone technology and air support. They are almost immune to prosecution of any encounter against Blue Team (that means you). They can turn you into a ghost without a blink of an eye and chill at their favorite bar that night.
Weakness. They, more than your ANTIFA street fighter or BLM Resistance fighter, are casualty adverse (people who have something to lose are not very combat effective). A common saying on the force is,”No matter what happens, I’m going home to my wife and kids at the end of the my shift”. They also are combat ineffective when outnumbered or outgunned. They are scared shit-less to engage POC for fear of losing their “all important pension”. That more than anything else, motivates them; fear of losing their pensions.
Analysis: Like our previous adversaries, don’t engage them as their is no upside while in their urban centers. That being said, they are chickenshits. In Minneapolis at the end of May, 2020, they fled their 3rd Precient letting ANTIFA/BLM burn the place to the ground; like I said, FORCE PRESERVATION. Christopher Dorner, RIP, showed the world how casualty adverse a big city police force actually is. LAPD was humbled by his Rambo-like one-man war.
They only act when they have the firepower and manpower on their side. Remember that. Speed is life.
Final thoughts: They are not there to protect you, but the establishment.
The U.S. used to be a capitalist country, but is now becoming a Marxist society, said Robert Kiyosaki, best-selling author of “Rich Dad Poor Dad.”
Kiyosaki was a veteran of the Vietnam War who had seven uncles fighting in World War 2. “I fought for capitalism,” he said. “America is going Marxist.”
The evolution of socialism in the U.S. started with the anti-war protests following the Vietnam War, Kiyosaki said.
“When I came back [from Vietnam] the hippies were outside just like the protesters are today in Chicago. I got hit with rotten eggs, I got hit with stink bombs, I got spit on and all this, and those were the hippies. Some of them were my classmates: SDS (Students for a Democratic Society), Black Panthers, all of those guys. And what happened to the baby boom SDS members? They became school teachers. A lot of my peers are now teaching in the highest levels of academia,” he said.
Importantly, Americans are starting to lose their basic liberties due to “mob” politics, Kiyosaki said.
“The freedom of speech is gone. Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and also the freedom of religion,” he said.
Kiyosaki has prepared for a time when he would have to leave the U.S., he said, by holding safe haven assets like gold and silver.
“Way back when I started storing gold in Switzerland and in Singapore, so in case I had to run, plus I had different passports. Gold and silver are flight capital, and as you know, the only people making money today in America are moving vans,” he said.
He added that bitcoin also qualifies as a safety asset because it’s “international currency; it operates outside the Fed and the Treasury.”
De Blasio’s New York has finally hit an all-time low: the once bustling city is now on the verge of looking like a demilitarized zone. Between the pandemic and the riots in the city, iconic 5th Avenue now looks more like a dystopian nightmare in a recently shot video posted to Twitter.
The video follows a car driving down a deserted 5th Avenue, with almost all of the area’s high end stores boarded up and shut down. There are few people seen on what is usually a busy street.
“Look at everything. Everything’s boarded up. Even the hotel. Boarded up,” the video’s narrator, who is obviously fed up with how the city looks, says.
He continues: “This is all Manhattan, boarded up. Have you ever seen Manhattan look like this? The media will not report this.”
“Everything boarded up. They don’t want to show this to you people because they’re afraid. Saks 5th Avenue – boarded up from end to end. They put up barbed wire. Everywhere you see boards, windows are gone. Look at New York City – what happened,” he says.
The video runs over 2 minutes and shows dozens of boarded up businesses. You can watch it here:
The video was originally posted as a response to another Tweet that seems to tell the developing tale about DeBlasio’s New York:

How it works …
Millie Weaver is a journalist and filmmaker who was arrested on multiple felony charges just hours before the scheduled debut of her new documentary titled ShadowGate: What They Don’t Want You To See.
In her densely packed exposé, Weaver unravels a perpetual plot, orchestrated by both major political parties, several public Federal agencies and a multitude of tax payer sponsored private intelligence contractors to remove President Donald Trump from office, and how it all works.
If crazy Joe can’t serve his full term, Kamala cannot by constitutional law become President. She is an anchor baby, her mother is from India, her father is Jamaican, and neither were American citizens at the time of her birth. That means the Presidency would fall on the Speaker of the house.
Recently Nancy Pelosi stated that she was next in line to become President. THAT in itself is reason to vote her out in November.
Democrats have worked the whole scenario out and I believe that is why they chose Kamala Harris.
Voter fraud is in the works to get Nancy Pelosi as President.
Cast your votes carefully in November, TRUMP as our President, or USA will become a third world country.
Kamala Devi Harris. (Oct. 20, 1964). Certificate of Live Birth, Mother: Goplan Shyamala, Age 26, from India, Caucasian; Father: Donald Jasper Harris, Age 26, from Jamaica, Jamaican, Occupation: Student and Teaching Fellow, Univ. of CA, date signed Oct. 23, 1964; 2531 Regent St. Apt. 5, Berkley – 4, Alameda Cty., CA; Reg. Dist. No. 6015, Reg. No. 15318, State File No. 64-295984, Kaiser Foundation Hospital, Oakland, Alameda, CA.
Unless proven with court documents – at the time of Kamala’s birth, her parents were not U.S. citizens. They were foreign students. At the time of her birth, her parents were not U.S. citizens. This makes her an anchor baby. She is not eligible to hold the office of president.
Where are her papers to prove CITIZENSHIP? And this time citizens are not going to let corrupt JOHN ROBERTS pull a fast one and claim that she is eligible for the presidency like he did with Indonesian Barry Soetoro. Demand that Kamala show documentary evidence of her citizenship and those of her parents.
“To serve as president, one must be at least 35 years old, have been a resident of the United States for at least 14 years, and be a ‘natural born Citizen’ (Article II, sec. 1 of the Constitution). Additionally, one cannot have already been president for more than a term and a half (22nd Amendment).”
Never let celebrities make you shift what you feel is wrong.
When will humanity begin seeing these billionaire celebrities for who they really are?
An Antifa mob who invaded a suburban neighborhood were pushed out by residents, leading to a ‘mosh pit’ fight with one neighbor using an American flag to keep a goon from pulling a knife.
The mob targeted a pro-police rally in a residential area of Ft. Collins, Colo., on Saturday, which was livestreamed.
The video shows a group of citizens, including an old man in a wheelchair, who refuse to be intimidated by staying inside their homes or from leaving their rally while anti-white, anti-American thugs vandalize their neighborhood.
“Nobody wants Antifa in the neighborhood, nobody wants them here,” the cameraman says.
The video shows them driving the vermin out:
Once a brawl breaks out, one resident says “everybody, keep your hands off your weapons. Keep punching each other in the face, just don’t shoot anybody.”
At one point, a man uses his American flag hanging on a dowel rod to pin down one Antifa member after someone declares “he’s got a big knife!”
Here’s some comments worth reading:
And here’s a full stream of the rally:
Last week, pictures of unmasked students crowding the hall of Georgia’s freshly reopened North Paulding High School went viral and raised questions all over the internet as to whether getting kids back to school while coronavirus cases are still on the rise is a good idea.
These are the kinds of tweets that were being shared:
Two students involved with posting the images were suspended, including Hannah Watters, who said: “There was no social distancing, a 10% mask use rate, it was chaos!”
After a national outcry, the district reversed course and the kids were allowed to return.
Watters raised her concerns after the district called mask-wearing a “personal choice” and acknowledged that social distancing “will not be possible to enforce” in most cases.
One school nurse in the district resigned over concerns about virus safety.
“I don’t feel supported. I don’t feel safe,” Amy Westmoreland told local news, adding that she made the decision even before the photos circulated. “I feel as though I need to take a stand so that these children who don’t have a voice and are being discouraged from speaking have a voice.”
Meanwhile, it turns out nine people at that school have already been infected. In a letter sent to parents Saturday and cited by ABC News, principal Gabe Carmona explained that six students and three staff members have since tested positive for the virus.
“We have anticipated that COVID-19 would impact us as it has nearly every community, and the district has worked in partnership with the Department of Public Health (DPH) to proactively implement safety precautions and response plans,” the letter reads.
The school announced Sunday it will be closed for in-person classes on Monday and Tuesday.
The tally of confirmed coronavirus cases in Paulding County, as of Saturday afternoon, reached 1,651, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health. There have been a total of 22 deaths and 123 hospitalizations in the area due to the virus since the pandemic started.
When two powerful Democrats suddenly reject the position of the teachers unions and support the position argued by President Trump, we know that something’s up…
“Face masks in public places are not necessary, based on all the current evidence… There is no benefit and there may even be negative impact.”
WASHINGTON, United States — The US biotech firm Inovio reported encouraging preliminary results Tuesday from tests of an experimental coronavirus vaccine.
Administered to 40 volunteers, it triggered an immune system response in 94 percent of those who completed the so-called phase one clinical trial, meaning they received two injections, four weeks apart.
Inovio’s vaccine, called INO-4800, is designed to inject DNA into a person so as to set off a specific immune system response against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The medication is injected under the skin with a needle, then activated with a device that resembles a toothbrush, which delivers an electrical impulse for a fraction of a second, allowing the DNA to penetrate the body’s cells and carry out its mission.
Here is the punchline: “The viruses invade human cells with their DNA payloads, and the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA. If all goes well, the new genes instruct the cells to begin manufacturing powerful antibodies.”
Read that again: “the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA.” Alteration of the human genetic makeup. Permanent alteration.
Inovio, which is financed by the US Defense Department and the NGO CEPI, also said it has been included in US President Donald Trump’s plan to produce hundreds of millions of doses of the vaccine by January as part of Operation Warp Speed.
Inovio’s medication is the only DNA vaccine that is stable at room temperature for more than a year and does not need refrigeration for transport or storage for several years, said Inovio CEO Joseph Kim.
This is a big plus when it comes to vaccinating people in developing countries, where it is harder to maintain the cold chain needed to preserve many products.
A total of 23 COVID-19 vaccine projects have launched clinical trials on humans, says the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and several have moved to phase two or three, which means they are being injected into thousands or even tens of thousands of volunteers.
A vaccine created by the US biotech firm Moderna and one from Oxford University in collaboration with British-Swedish firm AstraZeneca are among those which are in the most advanced stages of development, as are several Chinese projects. These include one from the company CanSinoBIO, which has received permission to administer the vaccine to Chinese soldiers.

Over much of the past year there’s been increased scrutiny focused on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s possible cognitive decline, given a series of bizarre statements, mishaps, and sometimes testy exchanges with constituents.
To our knowledge, the below televised CBS interview this week is the first time the 77-year old former VP was asked directly on a major TV network whether he’s willing to submit to a “cognitive test” in order to put widespread concerns of his perceived mental decline to rest.
“Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden exploded. This was followed by a strange and somewhat nonsensical cocaine analogy, and ended with Biden once again sputtering and trying to get out simple words — a familiar pattern. In short, it didn’t go well:
“C’mon man,” Biden responded to CBS Errol Barnett while other panelists looked on. “That’s like saying, ‘You — before you got on this program you took a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?’”
And Yahoo News describes it went further downhill from there:
Barnett followed up by asking Biden what he would say to Trump, “who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?”
“Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” said Biden with a laugh. “Look, c’mon man, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I’m so … looking [forward] to have an opportunity to sit or stand with the president on the debates.”
But the question remains whether there will even be live, in-person debates.
There’s been wide suspicions of a recent push by Democrats to keep Biden in his basement and avoid debating Trump altogether.
Strong whispers in Washington DC’ of Joe Biden’s cognitive decline:
According to a report in Axios this week, President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has officially requested the additional, earlier debate for the first week in September in a Wednesday letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Clearly, judging by this latest interview as well as past campaign appearances especially prior to the pandemic lock downs, DNC insiders are likely terrified at the prospect of Biden melting down into incoherent commentary during a live debate performance.
(John Vibes via TheMindUnleashed.com) According to a former member of the Royal guard who worked on Prince Andrew’s security detail, The London Metropolitan Police have destroyed evidence that could have revealed where Prince Andrew was on the night that he is accused of having sex with a teenager that was being trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.
The night in question is March 10th, 2011, as well as the morning hours of March 11. Virginia Giuffre, who was known by the name Virginia Roberts at the time, says that she was taken to London by Epstein and Maxwell and was expected to have sex with Prince Andrew.
Giuffre says that she was just 17-years-old at the time and remembers being taken to the “Tramp” nightclub in London, as well as one of Maxwell’s homes in the city.
Andrew was questioned about Giuffre’s accusations during an interview with BBC, and he made numerous mistakes and fumbles that brought his credibility into question.
In the interview, Andrew vehemently denied knowing Giuffre and insisted that he was not at that nightclub on March 10th.
He claimed that he was at a Pizza Express location in Woking, for a party, but at least one other witness has come forward to corroborate Giuffre’s claim. The witness says that she distinctly remembers seeing the prince at the nightclub on that evening.
There should be records of what the prince was doing on that evening, which would either exonerate him or prove that he was lying. Members of the royal family are regularly accompanied by police guards in their day to day activities and there are records of where and when the officers were sent, or at the very least a record of which officers worked on which day.
If these records were to be made available, the investigators could easily determine where Prince Andrew was on the night in question. Initially, police refused to release this information to the media, insisting that revealing such sensitive information about the royal family could be a “threat to national security.”
Singapore scientists uncover SARS-CoV-2-specific T cell immunity in recovered COVID-19 and SARS patients, and in uninfected individuals.
The T cells, along with antibodies, are an integral part of the human immune response against viral infections due to their ability to directly target and kill infected cells. A Singapore study has uncovered the presence of virus-specific T cell immunity in people who recovered from COVID-19 and SARS, as well as some healthy study subjects who had never been infected by either virus.
The study by scientists from Duke-NUS Medical School, in close collaboration with the National University of Singapore (NUS) Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) was published in Nature. The findings suggest infection and exposure to coronaviruses induces long-lasting memory T cells, which could help in the management of the current pandemic and in vaccine development against COVID-19.
The team tested subjects who recovered from COVID-19 and found the presence of SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells in all of them, which suggests that T cells play an important role in this infection. Importantly, the team showed that patients who recovered from SARS 17 years ago after the 2003 outbreak, still possess virus-specific memory T cells and displayed cross-immunity to SARS-CoV-2.
“Our team also tested uninfected healthy individuals and found SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells in more than 50 percent of them. This could be due to cross-reactive immunity obtained from exposure to other coronaviruses, such as those causing the common cold, or presently unknown animal coronaviruses. It is important to understand if this could explain why some individuals are able to better control the infection,” said Professor Antonio Bertoletti, from Duke-NUS’ Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) program, who is the corresponding author of this study.
Associate Professor Tan Yee Joo from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Joint Senior Principal Investigator, Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, A*STAR added, “We have also initiated follow-up studies on the COVID-19 recovered patients, to determine if their immunity as shown in their T cells persists over an extended period of time. This is very important for vaccine development and to answer the question about reinfection.”
“While there have been many studies about SARS-CoV-2, there is still a lot we don’t understand about the virus yet. What we do know is that T cells play an important role in the immune response against viral infections and should be assessed for their role in combating SARS-CoV-2, which has affected many people worldwide. Hopefully, our discovery will bring us a step closer to creating an effective vaccine,” said Associate Professor Jenny Low, Senior Consultant, Department of Infectious Diseases, SGH, and Duke-NUS’ EID program.
“NCID was heartened by the tremendous support we received from many previous SARS patients for this study. Their contributions, 17 years after they were originally infected, helped us understand mechanisms for lasting immunity to SARS-like viruses, and their implications for developing better vaccines against COVID-19 and related viruses,” said Dr Mark Chen I-Cheng, Head of the NCID Research Office.
The team will be conducting a larger study of exposed, uninfected subjects to examine whether T cells can protect against COVID-19 infection or alter the course of infection. They will also be exploring the potential therapeutic use of SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells.

Residents of the Third Precinct area of Minneapolis have been told by their beleaguered police department:
“Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet,” the police said in their email, a copy of which was obtained by Alpha News. The email said citizens should listen to criminals and “do as they say.”
The message warned that “some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted, and some threatened with a gun.”
In essence, residents are being told to “close one’s eyes and think of Black Lives Matter,” it seems.
The City of Minneapolis has now lost its most basic responsibility, the preservation of civil order. The fundamental compact between government and citizens is that in return for paying taxes, government protects us from marauders. There really is no point having a government if it takes the position that it cannot protect its constituents.
The fateful moment in this shameful surrender was when Mayor Jacob Frey ordered his police to vacate the Third Precinct building and let the mob loot it and burn it. That triggered the riots that destroyed a large swath of the commercial district along Lake Street, the major east-west artery in South Minneapolis. Frey now ranks as a historic villain in American history, a man whose name should connote cowardice in the same fashion as Benedict Arnold connotes treason.
It didn’t have to unfold this way. Detroit’s police chief James Craig is far wiser and more courageous than the contemptible Frey. He explained to Tucker Carlson why that city has had no riots and looting despite levels of black poverty far worse than in Minneapolis:
“We don’t retreat here in Detroit,” Craig said. “We’re just not going to do it. … We weren’t giving up ground to the radicals. We just didn’t do it.”
Detroiters aren’t tolerating violence in their city either, and the community at large is in support of the department’s efforts, he said.
I was born and raised in Minneapolis, and am saddened to my core that my hometown has surrendered to the worst among us. But that sadness is combined with fury at the irresponsibility of Frey and the rest of the Democrats that run the city and the state of Minnesota. Progressivism is toxic when it controls the elective offices in any polity.
… 2016 POTUS Candidate Trump is dead.
… from the righteous heart of Dinesh D’Souza, reelect Trump 2020.

After federal agents withdrew from Portland late last week, neo-Marxist ‘youts‘ broke out the lighter fluid and began torching Bibles, American flags, and a severed pig’s head donning a police hat.
Meanwhile, over 150 rounds were fired at a shooting downtown, striking a woman in the arm who was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Of course, the Washington Post is out with fresh propaganda with the headline “Calm returns to Portland as federal agents withdraw.”
It’s said that the 20th century was the American century, or the century when America became the only superpower in the world, and defeated several other countries who were on their way, those being Germany and Japan in WWII, the Chinese in the Korean War and the Soviets in the Cold War. This century has turned the tide in the direction of China, and recently China has been conducting activities that appear to have the hallmarks of “winning a battle before fighting it”, as Sun Tzu would have likely put it.
It’s no surprise that China owns a huge share of the media and entertainment in the US. Chinese companies now control over 8,000 theaters in the US and have large parts of most of the major studios in Hollywood, allowing them to project propaganda in the form of entertainment. This is now evident on almost every major television show and movie. If it’s not pro-China propaganda, it’s blatantly anti-American, anti-western and also anti-white and anti-Christian.
China has been working for decades to buy as much of the American supply chain and manufacturing capability as they can. Currently, Chinese companies produce over 95% of the antibiotics we use and at least 75% of the ingredients used in other medications. The supply chain for these items is always fragile (by design?) and it doesn’t take much for Chinese exporters to stop shipments of drugs and other medical supplies bound for the US. Chinese megacompanies have also acquired some large US based food producers, such as Smithfield, which is the leading producer of pork in the world. Smithfield has been owned by a company based out of Hong Kong since 2013.
I’ve said many times that China’s innovation abilities are based almost entirely on their ability to cheat and steal from western countries. They’ve gotten better at it over the decades, and it’s well known that China widely funds American university research. The researchers are always careful on the disclosure of their ties to Chinese funding. Obviously, we are all aware of how China dominates the market of production of telecommunications technology due to their immense mining of rare earth minerals. This is why China buys infrastructure in places no one wants to be. Afghanistan is one example, where China has built hundreds of cell phone towers (Roshan). Why would anyone want to spend money on cell phone towers in Afghanistan? Using those towers, China is able to collect data and lay the groundwork for future ventures there. China is also involved in the proliferation of 5G towers in the US.
According to the Paulson Institute, which states it is geared toward creating a productive US-China relationship (productive for whom?) China currently owns controlling shares of over 2,400 US companies, including AMC, General Electric Appliances, IBM, Motorola, Riot Games (they’ve got your kids), Teledyne, Triple H (coal mining), etc.
As previously posted on American Partisan, it’s been discovered that automatic rifle parts have been shipped across the US destined for Melbourne, Florida. The parts seem to have originated in Shenzen, China and passed through Detroit and were intercepted by CBP Louisville. What the purpose is is anyone’s guess, but the nature of it wreaks of proxy/guerrilla warfare. So if CBP was able to intercept one container of over 10,000 parts, how many other containers made it to their destination and were distributed? It’s also been found that seeds from China have been shipped to people in the US.
It is my belief that China’s plan to become a global superpower starts with establishing regional hegemony, which I think has already happened. There is no military power in the region that has the ability or the willingness to counter anything China has done in the South China sea. Their is no economic power in the region that has the ability or willingness to counter anything China has done on the economic stage. The US Navy is losing the ability to project power abroad in the region due to the capability of Chinese anti-ship missiles, and due to the insane focus of the US military on ensuring above all else that women and gays are promoted to leadership and embedded into our war fighting units in order to combat global climate change.
American leadership of the international community has been eroded by Chinese influence via their ability to leverage economic power into political power. They’ve also used their theft of intellectual property to mimic an innovation advantage. Third, I believe the Chinese government advancing their position by attacking who is at the top. China is waging active fourth generational warfare against the US by supporting the BLM movement, AntiFa and BAMN. They’re funding and probably equipping (remember those weapons parts) insurgent groups inside America as part of an obvious proxy war. If the US does not take decisive action to fight back, then the battle is already over.
“Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves. There has been rapid development of modern biological technology, and new bio-weapons have been invented one after another. Of course, we have not been idle…. We are capable of achieving our purpose of ‘cleaning up’ America all of a sudden”

No one can fault German authorities for this, right? To have held him longer after the first rape would have been “Islamophobic,” and as far as German authorities are concerned, that is the crime, not rape, that must be avoided at all costs.
“The perpetrator is said to have raped two girls (11, 13)!,” translated from “Triebtäter soll zwei Mädchen (11, 13) vergewaltigt haben!” by Frank Schneider and Dirk Decker, Bild, July 28, 2020 (thanks to Medforth):
Dortmund – It’s hard to believe: The man (23) who is said to have raped a 13-year-old in Dortmund on Friday apparently struck a month before!
On June 20, the Afghan is said to have raped an eleven-year-old in Dortmund. “It was a comparable event,” prosecutor Börge Klepping also confirmed the earlier act when asked by BILD. He did not want to give details, to protect the now twelve-year-old victim.
The man was caught shortly after the crime, but was released on July 3 after only twelve days, subject to registration requirements. Reason: he was not considered to be a flight risk.
The prosecutor: “He had previously appeared for a narcotics offense, but not in connection with sexual offenses. He has a permanent place of residence and therefore there was no reason to hold the refugee.”
On Friday, the Afghan, who has a temporary residence permit, then lured a 13-year-old into a hallway and also raped her. Because the girl delivered a good description of the perpetrator, her tormentor was caught on Saturday night.

Prosecutor Klepping: “He is in custody for serious sexual abuse along with rape.”

Gordon Chang compares China to 1930’s Japan, warns of very dangerous activities by Beijing against US
Author and China expert Gordon Chang warned on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” Monday that the Beijing government has undertaken “very dangerous activities, especially against the U.S. Navy and the Air Force” in recent years.
“When a militant power wants to kill in great numbers, it usually succeeds,” Chang told host Stuart Varney in reference to a 2018 incident in which two U.S. airmen piloting a C-130 aircraft were injured by a “military grade” laser.
“When you try to blind the pilots of an American plane, you’re trying to bring it down and kill the crew,” said Chang, adding, “there have been the sonic attacks against U.S. diplomats at the Guangzhou consulate at about the same time causing brain injuries.”
Chang, the author of the new book, “The Great U.S.-China Tech War,” compared Beijing under Xi Jinping to “1930s Japan.”
Tension levels between the U.S. and China have reached new highs after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. will regard China with a new strategy of “distrust and verify” and China accused the U.S. of backward thinking.
“The current situation in China-U.S. relations is not what China desires to see, and the U.S. is responsible for all this,” Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin said Friday in response to America’s closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston.
“We once again urge the U.S. to immediately retract its wrong decision and create necessary conditions for bringing the bilateral relationship back on track,” he added.
The Trump administration’s decision to close the consulate came after reports early last week indicated fires were burning in the consulate’s courtyard. Houston police and firefighters responded to reports of smoke rising from the courtyard and visible trash cans on fire, but were not allowed to enter the premises due to jurisdictional rights.
The State Department responded by giving the consulate three days to cease operations and vacate the premises.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus told Fox News the decision to close the consulate was “to protect American intellectual property and Americans’ private information.”
When Varney asked Chang if China believes “they can beat President Trump” with such aggressive tactics,” Chang answered, “I think they probably believe that they can and, at least, we know that they are trying.
He added that the Chinese government has “engaged in a malicious disinformation campaign on the coronavirus [and] another one on the George Floyd protest.
We believe, although this is unconfirmed, that that Houston consulate we closed down had links with U.S. protest groups. We have seen China try to bring in the U.S. items which would be very useful for a protest movement. We don’t know for sure but there is a lot that needs to be investigated.”

Medical establishment scrambles to censor scientific info — read the bombshell study for yourself here!
The National Institute of Health (NIH) removed a study from its website linking 5G radiation with the coronavirus after Infowars first brought attention to it.
The international study, called 5G Technology And Induction Of Coronavirus In Skin Cells, claims that 5G millimeter waves stimulate DNA in a way that causes cell nuclei to actually produce coronaviruses.
According to the Internet Archive, the NIH removed the study from their website in the afternoon of Friday July 24th, two days after Infowars first reported on it.
The July 2020 study was jointly produced by scientists from Guglielmo Marconi University, Central Michigan University and First Moscow State Medical University.
“In this research, we show that 5G millimeter waves could be absorbed by dermatologic cells acting like antennas, transferred to other cells and play the main role in producing Coronaviruses in biological cells,” the study states.
“DNA is built from charged electrons and atoms and has an inductor-like structure. This structure could be divided into linear, toroid and round inductors. Inductors interact with external electromagnetic waves, move and produce some extra waves within the cells. The shapes of these waves are similar to shapes of hexagonal and pentagonal bases of their DNA source. These waves produce some holes in liquids within the nucleus. To fill these holes, some extra hexagonal and pentagonal bases are produced. These bases could join to each other and form virus-like structures such as Coronavirus.”
What’s more disturbing: that the NIH had a study on its official website claiming 5G creates coronaviruses, or the fact it was removed after becoming exposed?
Read the study the NIH doesn’t want you see below:
In a perfect example of the disconnect between Ivory tower Democrats and reality, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) gave a shocking answer when writer-producer Austen Fletcher asked him if he would disavow Antifa violence in cities like Portland.
After a brief pause, Nadler said it was a “myth that’s being spread only in Washington D.C.”
To which Fleccas replies: “Sir, there’s videos everywhere online. There’s fires and riots and they’re throwing fireworks at federal officers. DHS is there. Look online.”
“Meanwhile the whole city’s on fire and they’re trying to burn down the courthouse.”
The stunning exchange – tweeted by Eric Trump with the caption “This is the Democratic party in 2020,” comes after Portland enters its 60th day of protests which have turned violent on multiple occasions and have prominently included local Antifa.
Apparently Nadler didn’t get the briefing on that.
Meanwhile, Portland police just recovered four loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails in a local park after responding to reports of shots fired.
Eight were arrested Saturday night in Eugene, one for firing a gun in the crowd during the confrontation with counter-protesters and others for vandalism of property downtown early Sunday morning
A protest for the Black Lives Matter movement held in solidarity with Portland protesters Saturday night in Eugene was a night of clashing and close calls, as it almost immediately devolved into an aggressive confrontation with counter-protesters and later property destruction downtown by some.
The deliberate property destruction was reminiscent of the first night of protests following the killing of George Floyd on May 29, where several businesses on Sixth Avenue were vandalized.
But another moment is quickly becoming viral!
Antifa blocked off the streets and prevented an American patriot from using the road. When they surrounded him, he brandished a gun. One of the far-left protesters (RevCom soldiers) then brandished a gun back.
The scene was intense as you can see in the video below:
More video of the driver pulling a gun on Antifa-BLM protesters:
After close to a minute the truck driver drove off.
For weeks, the left-wing ‘Black Lives Matters Movement’ in the United States and increasingly in other countries around the world has been demonstrating the so-called ‘structural racism’ of the white majority of the population against blacks. Racism against whites, on the other hand, does not occur in the one – dimensional world of ideas of activists, because whites are always perpetrators and never victims. The fact that the Holocaust, i.e. the systematic murder of the (white) Jews by the Nazis, who were declared to have racist motives, shows that this claim is incorrect. The story popularized by the regular media is just as wrong: racism would only start from whites against blacks or other colored minorities, but never the other way around. Racism is a matter of power and might in the hands of “old white men”. South Africa is the opposite example.
Since the end of apartheid in 1994, the former black liberation movement ANC, together with the Communist Party (SACP) and the left-wing trade union federation Cosatu, have been ruling in a so-called Tripartite Alliance. But the much-cited “rainbow nation” in the Cape, in which the various races and peoples live together peacefully and move together towards a better future, is a brainchild.
In fact, the post-apartheid era has been a nightmare, especially for the white minority, who make up about 9 percent of the country’s nearly 58 million people. Just under 80,000 whites, mostly Boers and descendants of British immigrants, have been killed in the past three decades. Last but not least, this has to do with the excessive crime in the African country.
58 murders a day in South Africa
Every day, an average of 58 people are killed by criminals in South Africa. That’s six times more than in the United States. 40 percent of the victims are whites, most of whom are killed by black perpetrators. Last but not least, the focus of the violence is on white farmers.
According to the Transvaal Farmers Union TLU SA, a total of 5,437 attacks on farms were carried out between 1990 and May 2020. 2067 farmers were killed. This figure excludes the killed agricultural workers. Other sources even speak of 3,600 victims. In the first half of the current year alone, there were at least 156 attacks on farms and 24 murders, despite the strict exit restrictions that apply in South Africa due to the Corona epidemic. Some recent examples illustrate the cruelty with which perpetrators act against their mostly white victims:
• On June 1, the local doctor Dr. Roelof Botha, who lived on a farm in the wine village of Tulbagh near Cape Town, was stabbed with sheep shears. The 27-year-old black Aiden Abels was arrested by police as an urgent suspect.
• On June 6, Schalk and Lana Coetzee, an elderly couple aged 64 and 63, were brutally attacked by three black men on their farm outside the town of Reivilo (northwestern province). Schalk Coetzee was flooded by the attackers with boiling water and was seriously injured. Lana Coetzee was hit in the face by the perpetrators and suffered severe bruises and fractures. The victims are still in the hospital.
• On June 12, Oom Piet Pieterse was attacked, robbed and wounded with a machete (panga) by two black men wearing beehive hats on his farm Kudoesdraai, Leeudoringstad, in northwestern South Africa. Uncle Piet had deep cuts in his head to be admitted to a hospital.
• On June 18, 73-year-old Koos Janse van Rensburg was attacked by two blacks on his property in his area in Haakdoringboom north of Pretoria and brutally beaten. Within a week, the police have registered ten such crimes in the area. On the same day, a gang of black attackers attacked a farm near the town of Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg) in the northeastern province of Limpopo. Two children aged 9 to 14 suffered this injury after the criminals shot indiscriminately into the parental home. The white owners and their farm workers were robbed by the invaders. In Onderstepoort in the neighboring province of Gauteng, seven attacks on farms were registered within 24 hours at a time.
The above list is just a small selection of criminal attacks by black perpetrators on white farmers in South Africa. The fact that the number and intensity of such attacks has increased in recent years may be due to the decision of the South African Parliament to expropriate white landowners without compensation. It is currently being examined how this decision can be implemented in constitutional law. The intensified political debate has further fueled the vote against whites in South Africa and seems to justify some blacks using force to do what they have to do.
Racism against whites is encouraged
But it is not just the emotional debate over the expropriation of agricultural land that is fueling hatred of white farmers. In his book Kill The Boer: Government Complicity in South Africa’s Brutal Farm Murders, which was published in early 2019, author Ernst Roets shows how corruption in the police and anti-white media propaganda promote a climate of ‘systemic racism’ in South Africa in which attacks on farms are tolerated or even encouraged. Moreover, it must not be forgotten that during the apartheid era, the now ruling ANC chose white farmers as a special enemy, which was also expressed in the battle cry “Kill the farmer, kill the farmer”. This continues to have an impact today.
Radical black politicians like Julius Malema. Leaders of the left-wing extremist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), which he founded in 2013 and chaired the ANC Youth League until 2012, continue to pour oil on the fire and provoke racist attacks on the white minority. Asked if he was involved in the planning of murders of white farmers, Malema answered meaningfully in 2018: “Maybe, maybe not.” With 10.79 percent, the EVF was the third strongest force in South Africa in the general elections.
The Black First Land First (BLF), a spin-off of the EFF chaired by Andile Mngxitama, is also openly racist. It sees itself as revolutionary and socialist. The BLF only allows blacks, Indians and coloreds as members, not whites. The main purpose of the BLF, as set out in the preamble of the statutes, is the expropriation of white landowners in South Africa without compensation.
Mngxitama has repeatedly campaigned against the white minority and unpopular journalists in the past. In addition, the BLF publicly urged black people to occupy farms owned by white owners in order to reclaim their land.
Anti-white positions also in government
Anti-white racism in South Africa is not limited to radical groups, but extends to the government. Last year, Zindzi Mandela-Hlongwane, the South African ambassador to Denmark, abused the white minority in various tweets on Twitter under the hashtag “OurLand”, among others as “trembling cowards”, that is, “rapist descendants of Van Riebeck (sic!)” (correct: Van Riebeeck) and »land thieves«. In fact, most of present-day South Africa was uninhabited when it was ruled by the Boers 300 years ago. Zindzi Mandela-Hlongwane is the youngest daughter of Nelson Mandela and his second wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. She officially appeared as the first lady of South Africa between 1996 and 1998 after her father divorced her mother Winnie.
A few weeks ago, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa went even further. In a video discussion on the death of Black George Floyd in the United States, the head of state said:
»There is a natural sequence of things that [encourages] white South Africans to racist outbursts. (…) It also promotes violence in our home. All of these factors make it possible for a black policeman to kill a black man on an American street. It is this ‘order’ that must be challenged and broken. «
Ramaphosa, who has also chaired the ANC since 2017, is considered one of the richest men in South Africa with an estimated fortune of $ 450 million. The former union leader and ‘dedicated socialist’ would not owe this wealth in the last place to the ‘Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment’ (B-BBEE for short), a program. which officially serves to create economic equality for blacks, but in fact actively discriminates against white citizens. Only a small black elite is being promoted, while millions of South Africans continue to live in poverty, criticized former Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 2004.
It has remained the same to this day. Even if one applies the dubious criteria of left-wing social scientists, racism is by no means a domain of “old white men”, as the mainstream claims. South Africa is a particularly frightening example!
Just when you thought tensions between the U.S. and China couldn’t get any stranger in the midst of the ongoing global pandemic, Americans across the country are starting to report receiving unsolicited packages of different types of seeds that they didn’t order – and don’t know anything about – at their door. The return address on the packages is always from China.
The Washington State Department of Agriculture wrote about the phenomenon on their Facebook page on July 24, 2020 and said that the seeds are being shipping in packaging that identifies the contents as jewelry.
Similar advisories have been issued in Virginia, Utah, Kansas, Arizona and Louisiana.
“Unsolicited seeds could be invasive, introduce diseases to local plants, or be harmful to livestock,” the post says.
Facebook users have been adding photos in the comments section of the post sharing photographs of seeds they have received from China. “It’s not a joke. I got some the other day!!!” one user commented, stating that the package identified the contents as a “Rose flower stud earring”.
“Look’s like it’s all across the country,” stated an Indiana resident who also received seeds in the mail unsolicited.
At least 40 residents in Utah were said to have been mailed the unsolicited packages, according to the Daily Mail. The Kansas Department of Agriculture and the Arizona Department of Agriculture also addressed the phenomenon, as did the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, who said:
“Right now, we are uncertain what types of seeds are in the package. Out of caution, we are urging anyone who receives a package that was not ordered by the recipient, to please call the LDAF immediately. We need to identify the seeds to ensure they do not pose a risk to Louisiana’s agricultural industry or the environment.”
There have been similar reports from Virginia’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. “The seeds have yet to be identified, but officials speculate that the seeds may be of an invasive plant species and are advising residents not to use them,” Fox News reported.
“Taking steps to prevent their introduction is the most effective method of reducing both the risk of invasive species infestations and the cost to control and mitigate those infestations,” VDACS wrote in a press release.
Twitter is also littered with reports of people receiving these seeds:
The Washington State Department of Agriculture has advised people on its Facebook page:
1) DO NOT plant them and if they are in sealed packaging (as in the photo below) don’t open the sealed package.
2) This is known as agricultural smuggling. Report it to USDA and maintain the seeds and packaging until USDA instructs you what to do with the packages and seeds. They may be needed as evidence.
Anyone who has received seeds in the mail can report them to the United States Department of Agriculture by visiting their website here. The site says:
If individuals are aware of the potential smuggling of prohibited exotic fruits, vegetables, or meat products into or through the USA, they can help APHIS by contacting the confidential Antismuggling Hotline number at 800-877-3835 or by sending an Email to SITC.Mail@aphis.usda.gov.
USDA will make every attempt to protect the confidentiality of any information sources during an investigation within the extent of the law.
We can’t help but wonder, given the fact that agriculture is such a large cornerstone of trade talks with China, whether or not this could be more than just “agricultural smuggling”, but perhaps agricultural warfare of sorts.
This story is developing and we will continue to update it if more information becomes available.
STOCK UP NOW! Even as NPR mocks “Bean Buyer’s Remorse,” we are hearing that food packagers/distributors are unable to source tin/steel from China, resulting in a shortage of cans for food. With an already faltering supply chain, COVID-19 harvest labor concerns, and massive flooding in China, the future looks bleak — start growing/storing food now.
“Covid19 Virus Has Never Been Isolated And Purified,Therefore, It Has Not Been Proven To Exist! You Cannot Test For A Virus That Does Not Exist. And, You Also Cannot Manufacture A Vaccine For A Virus That Does Not Exist!!
That Is The Extent Of This Blatant Scam! FOI (Freedom Of Information Act) Requests To Health Authorities Have Proven That Covid19 DOES NOT EXIST! There Is No Scientific Evidence Anywhere That A Virus Causes Disease! Wake Up World You’re Being Scammed!”
Disgraced former Cardinal McCarrick ran a Vatican Epstein style ‘Sex Cabal’. Children were assigned to rooms and paired with adult clerics, but the truth on this monster of the Catholic Church is coming out, as a new lawsuit claims the former Cardinal allegedly ran a depraved sex ring of underage boys at the Sea Girt beach house on the Jersey Shore, just like Jeffrey Epstein did in Palm Beach with underage girls. Just like in Palm Beach, there was a Ghislaine Maxwell figure scouting the future victims to the predator. In McCarrick’s case, it was the principal at a Christian Brothers high school who helped procure victims for McCarrick and other clergy abusers in the early 1980s.
The suit, filed by a man using the pseudonym Doe 14, claims that in 1982 and 1983 when he was 14 years old, he and other victims were taken on weekend overnight trips to the New Jersey beach house. The suit also shows how McCarrick steadily climbed the hierarchy of the church despite being dogged by accusations of abuse for decades.
The plaintiff’s controversial lawyer Jeff Anderson, also clearly said that papal power is to blame to include Pope Francis, as he cited shocking claims made earlier by the controversial Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano. Let’s hope the authorities investigate McCarrick’s illegal activities in China, where he was offered underage boys for his unconditional loyalty in the creation of the new Vatican-China alliance. An anonymous source claims the CCP recorded tapes of sexual interaction between McCarrick and young Chinese children to use to blackmail the Vatican. The pedophile mafia is being exposed more and more on all fronts but I’m sure the worse is yet to come after The Vatican sold the “Catholic Faith” to China for $2 billion a year !

There is a lot of angry noise right now but also a noticeable, disturbing, silence.
The noise is coming, of course, from RevCom Black Lives Matter activists, their supporters and enablers.
The silence is coming from people who are normally happy to share their views but who are keeping their heads down and their mouths shut. That is where we are in the USA in 2020.
Many people are afraid to express their opinions.
And not without reason.

Dr. Carrie Madej, an American Internal Medicine Specialist claims that the pending COVID-19 Vaccine Is a first of kind Trojan Horse, engineered to permanently alter our DNA. This will have the same effect as creating a new species and perhaps destroying an old one, us. Dr. Madej goes on to describe how NANO tech introduced with the vaccine will create a permanent two way artificial intelligence interface with ‘the powers that be’ that we as individuals will not be able to control or turn off.

(Evita Duffy) Keith Ellison, former Democrat National Committee vice chairman and current Minnesota attorney general, said he does not want police officers to respond to rape calls. The shocking policy suggestion occurred during a Zoom conversation featuring Ellison and Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) to discuss racism and police reforms. The dialogue was moderated by White House correspondent for “PBS NewsHour” Yamiche Alcindor.
Ellison stated: “If you’re a woman who’s been a victim of a sexual assault, and the assailant ran away, wouldn’t you rather talk to somebody who is trained in helping you deal with what you’re dealing with, as opposed to somebody whose main training is that they know how to use a firearm? Right?”
In a tweet one user was appalled by the attorney general’s disregard for police officer capabilities, writing, “How is this guy an AG? Doesn’t he know they have special units trained to deal with sexual assault victims. What an insult – ‘their main training is how to use a weapon.’ Yes, help the victim, but catch the perp! Good grief.”
GOP rapid response director Steve Guest tweeted his prediction should Ellison and the radical left win in November, “This is Joe Biden’s Democrat Party and a reminder that you won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.”
A rape survivor responded to Guest’s tweet explaining, “Having been raped, I didn’t feel safe until I knew that the perpetrators were caught and was grateful for the police. Also, it was the police who directed me to community resources to help with the trauma and therapeutic resolutions. The ignorance of this man is insulting.”
Ellison’s desire to no longer allow police to respond to rape calls is shared by many on the left and its “defund the police” movement. A recent article by Moria Donegan in The Guardian is titled, “Who will protect you from rape without police?’ Here’s my answer to that question.” Donegan’s conclusion in the piece is, “As feminists, we must recognize that the police are more likely to hurt women than to help us.”
Ellison’s disregard for victims of violence is especially troubling given his personal history. In 2006 and 2018, Ellison was accused of physical and verbal abuse by former girlfriends. Amy Louise Alexander, who says she had an affair with Ellison while he was married to Kim Ellison, alleges the former congressman grabbed and pushed her during an argument. Ellison denies having a sexual relationship with Alexander.
In 2018, while he was campaigning to be Minnesota’s attorney general, the top legal officer of the state, more disturbing accusations of abuse surfaced. This time, former girlfriend Karen Monahan released a statement to local affiliate Fox 9. In the bombshell statement, Monahan painted a picture of a long-term relationship with Ellison that was so emotionally and physically abusive it led to Monahan acquiring a case of “complex PTSD.”
Monahan’s statement included disturbing descriptions of the abuse she says she endured. It is worth noting that this abuse allegedly occurred while Ellison was a U.S. congressman:
One night I confronted him very calm about a lie he had just told me straight to my face (sic). What happened next was a rage that I had never witnessed to that magnitude. He was becoming a person I had never seen before. The next morning, he came into the room I was sleeping in. I was laying across the bed with my headphones on, listening to podcast on my phone. He said he was about to leave town for the weekend and told me to take the trash out (sic). Given the explosive outrage that occurred the night before, I just should shook my head yes. I didn’t look up at him or saying anything (sic). That is when he tried to drag me off the bed by my legs and feet, screaming ‘b-tch you answer when I am talking to you. I said take out the trash, you’re a bad guest’ (even though we were living in the same place) (sic). He kept trying to drag me off the bed, telling me to get the f-ck out of his house, over and over. I froze. He had to leave and get on the plane. He knocked the shoe off my foot and told me I better be gone when he gets back (which was in two days).
Because of the explosive nature and timing of the accusations, Minnesota’s Democrat Party was forced to launch an investigation into the allegation. They appointed a local attorney who had links to the state party. Unsurprisingly, the attorney hired by the Democrat Party found Monahan’s abuse claim unsubstantiated. Ellison went on to become Minnesota’s first black and first Muslim AG.
Ironically, Monahan’s allegations coincided with the infamous Brett Kavanaugh investigations. Even though Justice Kavanaugh’s accuser presented zero evidence and he was ultimately exonerated, his reputation has suffered greatly from the accusation in a high-profile, high-stakes Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
Donald Trump Jr. pointed out the hypocrisy of the media’s portrayal of Kavanaugh and Ellison, whose accuser even presented medical records bolstering her claim: “Interesting how quiet the left/media (redundant I know) is on this given that there seems to be ACTUAL EVIDENCE that something happened here. Why the double standard? U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s ex-girlfriend posts medical record alleging abuse.”
This all questions whether Ellison can be considered a credible and unbiased voice on the issue of violence against women. Since Democrats vehemently maintain that accusers should be believed regardless of evidence, by their standards Ellison has an insurmountable conflict of interest.
It is time to take the bull by the horns to conquer the Wuhan virus. Drastic action is necessary, like on December 8, 1941 after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor.
President Trump should order immediate public access to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) by making the medication available over-the-counter (OTC). Liberals have interfered with public access to this medication for COVID-19 through the old-fashioned route of requiring a prescription and then having a pharmacist fill or reject the prescription.
Millions of Americans do not visit physicians, and cannot obtain a prescription for HCQ if they did. Even if you have been exposed to COVID-19, you cannot obtain a prescription for HCQ in most states because regulators prohibit dispensing it without a positive test result, which typically cannot be obtained until late in the progression of the disease.
No one credibly doubts that HCQ is safe, and safer than many medications currently available OTC. No one credibly doubts the dozens of studies showing that early use of HCQ, pre-exposure and immediately after exposure to COVID, has helped many overcome this dreaded disease.
Americans do not need a prescription to obtain hundreds of medications which once required a prescription. Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Claritin, Flonase, and Primatene Mist are medications that have been shifted from Rx to OTC in recent years, not because the medical establishment pushed for the change, but because of public demand for it.
No demand is higher at this time than for a medication which helps prevent against COVID. Yet Americans are not being allowed to access the medication which they want and need, and instead are being told by FDA and state officials that they cannot have it.
Last month the Oregon pharmacy board, for example, blocked HCQ access as follows:
“Prescription orders for chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 infection may only be dispensed if written for a patient enrolled in a clinical trial by an authorized investigator.”
They based their ban on an improper statement issued by FDA, which is controlled by opponents of Trump’s reelection. Of course, many government officials in Oregon are against Trump, too.
Every state board of pharmacy or medicine is controlled by left-leaning government workers who, by and large, despise President Trump and hope he loses in November. They are accomplishing their dream by choking off public access to HCQ.
In other countries, such as Costa Rica and Honduras, HCQ is being given freely to the public to successfully defeat coronavirus there. In some countries officials are even going door-to-door distributing HCQ to build up protection against the virus, with great success.
The mortality rate from COVID-19 in the United States is far higher per case, and per million of residents, despite how we have the finest hospital system in the world. We don’t currently have public access to HCQ to protect against the disease, however, and that is what is needed at this time.
An executive order by President Trump, through use of his full emergency authority, could give Americans the same rights to HCQ for COVID which some of the poorest people in the world enjoy. Trump could even dispense HCQ at his rallies, which would both restore their massive numbers and help safeguard against spread of the virus.
But the medical establishment, such as Dr. John Fleming who is advising Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, is impeding this solution to the crisis. As a physician, Dr. Fleming is instinctively trained to oppose OTC status for most medications, and he is beholden to the mindset of requiring people to see physicians first.
Americans are accustomed to being advised to consult a physician before starting a weight-loss plan, an attorney before writing a will, and an accountant before filing a tax return. In ideal situations, recommending use of a professional is non-controversial.
When there is a crisis, however, the dynamic is different. When thousands are dying unnecessarily, and millions are paralyzed by fear, directly alleviating that mortality and fear becomes paramount.
There is no valid reason to deny public access to low-dose HCQ, which studies show can protect against COVID, just as there is no legitimate reason to require a prescription for low-dose steroid cream (Cortisone) and many other over-the-counter medications. The political motivation to block access to HCQ justifies making it publicly available.
This is not a decision for Anthony Fauci or the medical establishment or FDA to make during a national crisis. This is for President Trump to decide, and make HCQ available quickly to the public.
If an intruder is discovered in one’s home in the middle of the night, no responsible father tries first to call an expert to get an opinion about what to do. Instead, quick and decisive action is taken, and that means OTC status for HCQ to conquer COVID.
What is the deadliest thing mankind has ever encountered in history? Disease, famine, nuclear weapons? Not even close. By sheer body count, it’s an idea. One that thrives on absolute power and control, and will stop at nothing to achieve complete domination.
This is the story of the deadliest virus in the world, COMMUNISM. You can’t kill an idea, but ideas can kill you. We must fight this virus to survive.
Despite the recent coronavirus surge in southern states, three states—New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts—account for about 42 percent of COVID-19 deaths in America. Why?
The words “utter disaster” are used, and Williams, an expatriate, contrasts America’s response to that of France, where he currently lives.
“As Donald Trump’s America continues to shatter records for daily infections, France, like most other developed nations and even some undeveloped ones, seems to have beat back the virus,” Williams writes.
To be sure, the US response to the coronavirus was far from perfect (more on that later). But the article shows one of the challenges with this pandemic: even as more data is acquired, the picture doesn’t always get clearer.
In some ways, COVID-19 data are like a Rorschach blot from which writers, politicians, and experts can glean whatever conclusions they wish to find. Take Sweden, where daily COVID-19 deaths recently reached zero.
According to Newsweek editorial director Hank Gilman, Sweden’s “lighter touch” approach was a failure because seven times as many people died there than in neighboring Scandnavian countries such as Finland and Norway. He is not alone in the assessment.
On the other hand, Sweden suffered far fewer deaths per capita than several European neighbors that instituted strict lock downs—including Belgium, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom—and has avoided some of the economic fallout other nations have endured. Unlike other countries, its currency is growing stronger.
Indeed, Sweden’s death rate is remarkably close to that of France, which Williams praised as a model in contrast to the “utter disaster” in the US. However, the US actually has a lower per capita death rate than both Sweden and France—at least for now. (While it’s true COVID cases are on the rise again in the US, deaths recently reached three-month lows.)
This raises questions about how we measure success in the age of COVID-19. While most attention is being paid to rising case numbers, death tolls would seem to be the most important metric. While US deaths per capita (401/1M) put the country among the ten highest in the world—ahead of France and Sweden, but just below the Netherlands—those numbers also don’t tell the entire story.
Few may have noticed that 42 percent of all COVID deaths in the US come from just three states—New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts. These three states account for nearly 56,000 of the nearly 133,000 deaths in the US, even though they represent just 10 percent of the population. If these three states are excluded, the US suddenly finds itself somewhere in between nations such as Luxembourg (176/1M) and Macedonia (166/1M), where some of the better fatality numbers in Europe are found.
Why have New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts suffered so much more than other US states? We don’t yet know the answer to that question, but evidence suggests it could be policy related.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year received a great deal of criticism when the state’s policy of prohibiting nursing homes from screening residents for COVID-19 came to light. Cuomo eventually reversed that decision under intense criticism from public health experts and trade group leaders.
This week, the New York State Department of Health issued a report that concluded 6,326 COVID-positive residents were admitted to nursing homes between March 25 and May 8 as a result of the order.
”The data shows that the nursing home residents got COVID from the staff, and presumably, also from those who visited them. Unfortunately, we did not understand the disease early on, we did not realize how widespread it was within our community, and therefore, it was able to be introduced into a vulnerable population,” said New York Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker.
The report, however, also claimed that “most patients admitted to nursing homes from hospitals were no longer contagious when admitted and therefore were not a source of infection … [and] … nursing home quality was not a factor in nursing home fatalities.”
The report cites the high nursing home fatality rates of Massachusetts and New Jersey as additional evidence that New York was not an outlier in nursing home deaths.
“…an examination of fatalities in our neighboring states—despite having populations much smaller than New York’s—illustrates fatalities at these facilities were not a New York-specific phenomenon: Connecticut reports 3,124 deaths in these facilities, New Jersey reports 6,617, and Massachusetts reports 5,115, to New York’s 6,432 fatalities.”
However, it’s worth noting that both New Jersey and Massachusetts had similar policies in place, according to the AARP and other news stories. Moreover, the actual number of nursing home deaths in New York is difficult to know, since New York changed its reporting so that nursing home residents who die of COVID-19 are not counted as a nursing home death if they die at a hospital.
The context of the US numbers matters for several reasons. For one, understanding why New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts have suffered so much more from the coronavirus may hold keys to combating the virus.
Secondly, there is currently a great deal of scrutiny on states such as Florida, Texas, and Arizona, which have seen case numbers increase in recent weeks, a spike that began in mid-June after states reopened their economies. The implication is that these states dropped the ball by reopening too soon.
None of these states, however, has a per capita fatality rate that even approaches New Jersey, Massachusetts, or New York. Below are the figures as of July 7.
Considering these numbers, one would not expect to see a governor from New Jersey, New York, or Massachusetts lecture these other states on their handling of the coronavirus. But that’s exactly what Gov. Cuomo did, claiming his state-ordered lock down “saved lives” and chastening governors who opened their economies.
“I say to them all look at the numbers,” Cuomo said, referring to leaders in the states seeing rises in COVID-19 cases. “You played politics with this virus, and you lost. You told the people of this state, you told the people of this country, the White House, ‘Don’t worry about it. Go about your business.’”
Cuomo makes no mention of the social costs of the economic lock downs—mass unemployment, widespread bankruptcy, and surging mental health deterioration, drug abuse, and global poverty. Nor does he mention his state’s catastrophically high COVID death toll.
The extent to which policy decisions are linked to the high fatality rates in these states is still unknown. We’re in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and still learning about the virus. But that is precisely why lawmakers should exercise caution in their policy prescriptions.
In his 1974 Nobel Prize speech, the economist F.A. Hayek warned against the temptation to use collective action with incomplete knowledge, saying such action would likely cause more harm than good.
“To act on the belief that we possess the knowledge and the power which enable us to shape the processes of society entirely to our liking, knowledge which in fact we do not possess, is likely to make us do much harm,” Hayek stated. “The recognition of the insuperable limits to his knowledge ought indeed to teach the student of society a lesson of humility which should guard him against becoming an accomplice in men’s fatal striving to control society – a striving which makes him not only a tyrant over his fellows, but which may well make him the destroyer of a civilization which no brain has designed but which has grown from the free efforts of millions of individuals.”
Hayek saw a world that increasingly seemed to believe central planners could solve any and all social problems. Such a worldview carried the seed of great harm, he believed.
We don’t yet know how this pandemic or economic collapse will end, but some have predicted it shaping up to be a blunder of historic proportions.
“The first half of 2020 will go down in history as the largest nationwide public policy failure since the Great Depression,” the economic historian Phil Magness recently observed. “A part of that failure derives from the largest wide-scale suppression of economic and social liberties in most of our lifetimes, all executed to negligible effect at solving the problem it intended to target.”
If Magness is correct, the crisis, though tragic, may also offer a healthy dose of an elixir Hayek would say humans desperately need: humility.
“The recognition of the insuperable limits to his knowledge ought indeed to teach the student of society a lesson of humility which should guard him against becoming an accomplice in men’s fatal striving to control society,” Hayek concluded in his address.
The lock downs and the nursing home tragedies show just how destructive and fatal such striving to control society can be.
“This is a historic moment of change. We have to respect that…”
New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio made some stunning remarks on CNN, declaring protests in the streets were perfectly acceptable while canceling other large events through September.
De Blasio joined CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday evening, discussing the evolving pandemic and policy response by City Hall to mitigate the spread in the city. He said social justice warriors were too important after months of protests have yet produced an outbreak in cases.
“This is a historic moment of change. We have to respect that but also say to people the kinds of gatherings we’re used to, the parades, the fairs — we just can’t have that while we’re focusing on health right now,” de Blasio told Blitzer.
Blitzer then asks: What about protests?
De Blasio responds: “This is a historic moment. We have to respect that.”
The Daily Caller tweeted CNN’s video – here’s how Twitter responded to de Blasio telling Blitzer that the city will ban all large gatherings except for Black Lives Matter protests:
So it’s okay to have mass-gatherings, then paint a “Black Lives Matter” mural in front of Trump Tower in New York City – but indoor dining at restaurants has been delayed?
So far, virus cases and deaths have not surged since weeks of demonstrations.
It’s only a matter of time before residents become angry that restrictions are being politicized.
It’s fair to say that tensions between the US and China have escalated to levels unseen since the days of the Nixon Administration, when the bilateral relationship between the two countries finally began as the Communists abandoned their commitment to isolation and insulation from the capitalist west.
Though it has never garnered much attention in the headlines, the US Navy has increasingly flexed its military muscle in the contested South China Sea, which Beijing claims as sovereign Chinese territory, despite an ICC ruling repudiating China’s claims to some of these reefs and islands in the south and east china seas.
Over the past week, the Navy sent two aircraft carriers to begin some of the largest military exercises that US forces have ever hosted in the South China Sea, a show of strength with a clear message: That the US stands ready to counter China’s military ambitions in the Pacific.
A reporter for the Nikkei Asian Review noted Thursday that a former high-ranking CCP official this week published an editorial in a key academic journal that appears to cut against the Party line, and suggest an even more radical solution: complete economic decoupling from the US.
The author is careful to address the fact that isolationism has a bad history in the 20th Century in China: Instead of China going it alone, Zhou Li, a 65-year-old former deputy head of the Chinese Communist Party’s International Liaison Department, argues that a competing “yuan-based” economic bloc must emerge to rival the dollar-based financial system.
In a commentary piece, a writer for Nikkei breaks down Zhou’s argument:
It has been a tense first week of July in the seas of Asia.
While two U.S. aircraft carriers, the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz, launched hundreds of aircraft daily into the skies above the South China Sea, China was conducting naval exercises in the same sea. In a rare and symbolic move, the People’s Liberation Army Navy also carried out live-fire drills in the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea.
Amid the tensions, one published article has been the talk of the town in many Chinese circles. Written on the assumption that the novel coronavirus will disrupt China and the world for an extended period, the content is highly controversial.
The article predicts industrial supply chains being torn up, a China-U.S. decoupling and a world split into dollar and yuan economic blocs.
The author is Zhou Li, a 65-year-old former deputy head of the Chinese Communist Party’s International Liaison Department, a division in charge of party-led diplomacy. His views notably differ from the official Chinese government line; they are also radical.
Zhou says Chinese must prepare:
Zhou does not shy from painting a grim picture of the Chinese economy, and his wording clearly differs from that of official documents prepared by government bureaucrats.
“Many international economic organizations such as the International Monetary Fund have issued reports downgrading global economic growth this year to as much as minus 4.9%, the worst economic recession since the Great Depression in the 1930s,” Zhou wrote.
The article goes on: “The order log at our exporters has been greatly reduced. Production at enterprises upstream and downstream has stalled. International transportation logistics have been blocked. Raw materials are lacking and plants are unable to deliver their products.
This phenomenon is putting huge pressure on our stable growth and job security.”
While not spelling it out, Zhou was hinting that China’s current economic situation is so harsh that it too could post zero or negative growth.
It is precisely the “black swan” – a serious incident that defies conventional wisdom and is unforeseen – that President Xi Jinping has been warning about.
Furthermore, Zhou indicated that the yuan bloc is on its back foot. “The U.S. controls the main channel for international payment and clearing, namely through SWIFT,” he wrote, noting that the international payment information of Chinese, Russian and Iranian companies is in Washington’s hands.
Disrupted supply chains would inevitably deliver a blow to the 5G strategy of Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei.
If Zhou’s predictions are correct, various future plans of Xi’s would crumble.
But there is an even bigger problem.
If China barrels ahead to go beyond building an economic bloc and chooses to isolate itself, it will no doubt revert to the world before its accession to the World Trade Organization at the end of 2001, a stepping stone for the high economic growth that followed.
Worse, China may travel back in time to before it established diplomatic ties with the U.S. in 1979, during the Cold War.
China’s historic rapprochement with the U.S. came a few years after the end of the 1966-1976 Cultural Revolution, a political campaign launched by Mao Zedong, during which numerous innocent people became victims after being stigmatized as counter revolutionaries.
The Cultural Revolution followed the 1958-1961 Great Leap Forward, a reckless campaign also launched at the behest of Mao to pursue a big increase in agricultural and industrial production. The campaign failed, and a huge number of people starved to death.
To be sure, Xi has recently issued an order to prepare for the worst, including in China’s relations with the U.S., using the expression “bottom-line thinking,” or assuming the worst.
But until now, it had been taboo in China to refer to just how far the situation surrounding China might deteriorate due to the “new Cold War.”
“In the six months since the outbreak, the US ruling authorities – including the Trump administration and the U.S. Congress – have continued to strengthen their pressure on China,” Zhou wrote, citing examples such as canceling preferential treatment for Hong Kong and sending warships to the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea.
He said the U.S. attempted to write “China “Virus” into U.N. Security Council resolutions and that it was trying to seize U.S. Treasury bonds purchased by China as compensation for the pandemic.
Zhou is not a mere scholar. He is a figure who was close to the center of the party’s diplomatic nerve center.
Furthermore, his article appeared in a newspaper published by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, a government-affiliated think tank. It appeared as part of a special feature about “a community with a shared future for humanity.”
Amid a compilation of articles praising Xi’s concept of a “community with a shared future for humanity,” Zhou’s article oddly stands out. It was as if to say that the “community” Xi envisions is that of an economic bloc.
The article has sparked a torrent of interpretations and speculation as to why China dared to reveal a doomsday scenario.
In a straightforward interpretation, Zhou’s article could be an attempt at preemptive-damage control ahead of a sudden move toward decoupling, which would rattle the Chinese people and could lead to social unrest.
The article has left Chinese readers with a sense of resolve. “China will never lose,” and, “Beat the U.S.” are frequent comments left by those who read it.
Some Chinese have reacted coolly to the article. “U.S.-China decoupling is a pipe dream,” one reader said. “There is no way that we can get along through such a method.” This view is shared by other skeptical readers.
Others say it could be in line with the traditional way of expressing views euphemistically. While seeming to be loyal to the party, these euphemistic articles often level criticism or give advice to the party.
In the second half of his article, Zhou touched on higher food prices, which have already been laid bare, and the possible coming of a global food crisis.
In the past, China, the world’s biggest importer of soybeans, gave up on food self-sufficiency as it pursued industrialization. Without an international environment that helps the global economy to thrive, China could not feed its people.
Some say Zhou’s article could be an indirect expression of dissatisfaction toward a current leadership team that is running out of control.
It is of great interest how Zhou, a former diplomat stationed in Moscow, analyzed the self-destruction of the Soviet Union after it was driven into an economic corner.
The demise of the Soviet Union is a topic in which Xi himself has been interested. He sees it as a bad example that China must avoid.
