(Gabrielle Reyes) Japan’s Fisheries Agency has advised Japanese fishing boats to avoid certain areas within Japan’s own exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and operate elsewhere after thousands of Chinese fishing boats ignored Tokyo’s previous warnings in recent weeks to exit the country’s waters.
“The request, directed at Japanese fisheries cooperatives, caused considerable outrage with a fisherman in Ishikawa Prefecture, facing the Sea of Japan,” the Asahi Shimbun reported on Wednesday. According to the newspaper, upon learning of the recommendation, the fisherman griped, “When a burglar has entered one’s backyard, would anyone say do not get near the thief?”
“[Japan’s] Fisheries Agency officials declined to go into details, saying only that its request was aimed at securing the safety of Japanese fishing boats.”
The fisheries agency said that by the end of September, its patrol vessels had ordered 2,589 Chinese vessels to leave Japanese waters off the country’s northwest coast near the Yamatotai fishing grounds. This marks “a 3.6-fold increase over the same period in 2019,” according to the report.
The Japan Coast Guard, which operates separately from the fisheries agency, said it had issued “a record 102 orders … to Chinese fishing boats as of October 16,” a significant increase over the 12 orders issued in 2019.
The Yamatotai fishing grounds are located about 217 miles off of Japan’s Noto Peninsula. Yamatotai is a favorite fishing spot among Japanese crews in the autumn when Surume Ika or flying squid and crabs native to the waters are abundant.
Kishi Hiroshi, president of Japan’s national federation of fisheries cooperatives (JF Zengyoren) visited several ministerial offices in Tokyo on October 16, including the prime minister’s office, to request that fishermen be allowed to return to the Yamatotai zone.
“The Japanese government should implement a firm response so that Japanese boats can resume fishing,” Kishi said at the time.
According to the South China Morning Post (SCMP), analysts observing China’s recent encroachment on Japan’s EEZ say it could be caused by China over fishing in its own “coastal waters close to the [Chinese] fishermen’s home ports … meaning the crews are having to venture farther afield for a catch. An alternative suggestion is that China is testing Japan’s resolve over its territorial integrity and the responses of its coastguard and, potentially, the military.”
Judging from JF Zengyoren’s adverse reaction to Tokyo’s recent suggestion that fishermen near Yamatotai merely avoid the Chinese fleets, Japanese fishermen seem to support a stronger government response to the illegal activity.
“There has been no word on whether more coastguard vessels will be deployed to the area to protect Japanese vessels and to dissuade foreign boats from entering,” the SCMP noted on Wednesday.
H/t: WRSA – (Angelo Codevilla) Turkeys cheering the arrival of Thanksgiving would be only marginally more pathetic than the conservative luminaries on Fox News who cheer for the police as civilization’s saviors. The police. You know—the heroes who stood aside as mobs looted and burned Minneapolis, Portland, Kenosha, Chicago, Macy’s in New York, downtown Chicago and so on while organized mask-wearing Antifa thugs beat whoever got in the way? Yes, the police we watched tase a woman for not wearing a mask in a stadium and arresting people for singing Christian hymns in a park. The police, who don’t answer calls from people who are being threatened in their homes. Those police.
(ZeroHedge) In a day when half the US population remained transfixed by the ongoing revelations about the contents of Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” and the other half was doing everything in its power to ignore the news which the socials have conveniently been desperate to censor, a far less noticed but perhaps just as important investigative report authored by the unknown Typhoon Investigations, was released by Christopher Balding, Associate Professor at Peking University HSBC School of Business Shenzhen, China and also Bloomberg contributor (which is odd considering the clear anti-Trump bias of the Bloomberg media empire) exposing Biden activities in China which “the press has simply refused to cover”, and which reveals “how Biden was compromised by the Communist Party of China.”
In a series of tweets around noon on Thursday, Balding said that he had really “not wanted to do this but roughly 2 months ago I was handed a report about Biden activities in China the press has simply refused to cover. I want to strongly emphasize I did not write the report but I know who did.”
Biden’s campaign website says, “Biden will enact legislation to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts.”
It also contains a link to the March for Our Lives’ “Peace Plan”, which calls for “a prohibition on any and all online firearm and ammunition sales or transfers, including gun parts.”
Breitbart News reported that one of Biden’s other gun control policy proposals includes a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA). Unless there were some form of carve-out, this could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax per AR-15 that they own.
The National Rifle Association’s Andrew Arulanandam told Breitbart News that the current “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million. A tax of $200 on 18 million AR-15s means that gun owners could potentially be required to pay a collective $3.6 billion in taxes if this policy were enacted into legislation.
Breitbart News also reported that one of Biden’s proposals includes a provision that could require Americans to sell back their so-called “high-capacity magazines” to the government or be registered under the NFA. The latter, unless there were some form of carve-out, could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax for every high-capacity magazine they currently own.
Fascinating throughout however you may need headphones for clearer audio.
When it comes to silver, David Morgan of The Morgan Report is synonymous with the metal, having tracked it for decades. “Some people may hate me for saying this,” says Morgan in his interview with Daniela Cambone, “but we have a backed-up inventory of the metal; for now, the market can meet demand.”
Morgan explains that the silver price probably won’t see an imminent breakout, but a big uptrend move is coming — it’s currently trading around $24 an ounce, about halfway from its all-time high of $50 an ounce.
(Robert Kraychick) Joe Biden has not denied the veracity of emails reported to be sent and received by his son Hunter Biden, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) noted on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, referring to recent reports from the New York Post regarding the former vice president’s second son’s dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
In 2014 we published a disclaimer about the forecast. In six years the scenario has changed dramatically. This new disclaimer is meant to single out the situation from 2020 on wards. Taking about the United States and the European Union as separated entities no longer makes sense. Both are the Western block, keep printing money and will share the same fate.
After COVID we can draw two major conclusions:
(by Andrea Widburg) The moment the New York Post reported on some of the sleazy, corrupt details contained on Hunter Biden’s hard drive, Twitter and Facebook, the social media giants most closely connected to the way Americans exchange political information, went into overdrive to suppress the information and protect Joe Biden. In the case of Facebook, though, perhaps one of those protectors was, in fact, protecting herself.

The media is blaming shortages of corn on the virus, but both common sense and a new study out of Canada attribute massive crop losses to the fact that our sun is dropping into a modern Grand Solar Minimum. It is this that is driving the timeline for totalitarian takeover and lock downs, even when it seems less than ideal — the technocrats have aggressive deadlines: The food is running out. Governments are competing against us for available food. Spread the word and start growing for you and yours today.

It’s so simple ~ Yet complex.
Like a Meritage wine.
(Via 21stCenturyWire.com) This week, Sky News Australia contributor and former Australian Senator Cory Bernardi, tore open the debate on COVID after calling out a globalist agenda which few in mainstream media have dared to mention so far.
Since lockdowns began in March of 2020, few have challenged the government rationale for voluntarily imploding their economies and destroying communities and societies – based on a guess that coronavirus might kill tens of millions of citizens.
However, Bernardi believes that the COVID-19 pandemic hysteria is being used as the Trojan horse for a globalist agenda hatched out of the World Economic Forum in Davos. It’s called The Great Reset, and its designed by elite billionaires supposedly to bring about ‘social and economic change.’
“There is something unusual about the continuing pandemic panic,” said Bernardi.
“Medical experts now acknowledge that lockdowns don’t work…
Now none of that makes any sense until you open your mind to consider if there is another agenda at work.”
According to technocrat, Klaus Schwab, founder and Chairman of the World Economic Forum, “COVID 19 cases have shown us that our old systems are not fit anymore for the 21st century, it has laid bare a fundamental lack of social cohesion, fairness, inclusion and equality.”
“Now is the historical moment of time not only to fight the… virus but to shape the system… for the post-corona era,” claims Schwab.
“(Mr Schwab) admits that COVID is the new excuse to usher in the Green New Deal that climate alarmists, profiteers and big government have been pushing for years,” said Bernardi.
“Think about it, the global response to COVID has been a green socialist’s dream.”
Bernardi cites the fact that coordinated government shutdown policies (not COVID) have brought down fuel consumption and canceled international travel and bankrupted scores of airlines and travel firms already.
In addition, governments are using the ‘pandemic’ to permanently curtail civil liberties and freedom of movement and assembly.
“Why do you think the Australian Greens have been so quiet these past months … it’s because their policy agenda is coming to life?” he asked.
“After decades of peddling climate change lies and propaganda to force government by the elites, the socialists have used a media induced hysteria over public health as their latest weapon of economic destruction.”
The end game of creating to illusion of a global pandemic emergency is to rapidly usher-in the introduction of a ‘Green New Deal‘ policy – where billionaires seek to restructure our capitalist system into a new ‘green economy’ – promising equality and “climate justice” along the way.
He also highlights the fact that many of the same scientists and institutions involved in the fraudulent over-the-top modelling of COVID deaths – are also involved in IPCC computer modeled projections of supposed future climate change.
In this segment, Mr. Bernardi explains what’s actually behind the mass-panic being fomented by certain governments and mainstream media, hyping the idea that the world is in the midst of a “deadly plague” and public health crisis.
(Robert Wheeler) Recently, I wrote an article discussing the looming food crisis in the United States and the rest of the world. While it might seem like paranoia to some readers, the information provided in that article is very real. In fact, I’m not the only one that’s been thinking about it.
Back in 2015, 65 people showed up at the World Wildlife Fund’s headquarters in Washington D.C. These individuals were international policymakers, corporate businessmen, academics, and “leaders in thought.” Their goal? To run a simulation of a world food crisis that would begin in 2020 and run to 2030.
The press release of the event was published on the Big Ag corporation Cargill website and revealed that the food shortage simulation that the decade between 2020 and 2030 would see two major food crises. During this time, prices would rise 400% of the long term average, there would be a number of climate-related weather events, governments would be toppled in Ukraine and Pakistan, and famine would force refugees from Myanmar, Chad, Sudan, and Bangladesh.
Does any of this sound familiar yet?
In the simulation, one governmental solution was a tax on meat. Another? A global carbon tax.
Seriously. This has to sound familiar by now.
On Monday and Tuesday, 65 international policymakers, academics, business and thought leaders gathered at the World Wildlife Fund’s headquarters in Washington DC to game out how the world would respond to a future food crisis.
The game took the players from the year 2020 to 2030. As it was projected, the decade brought two major food crises, with prices approaching 400 percent of the long term average; a raft of climate-related extreme weather events; governments toppling in Pakistan and Ukraine; and famine and refugee crises in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Chad and Sudan.
Climate, hunger, civil unrest and spiking food prices came together at the Food Chain Reaction game in Washington DC this week. Cooperation mostly won the day. Along with WWF, the Center for American Progress and the Center for Naval Analyses, Cargill was one of Food Chain Reaction’s organizers. The company was represented in the game by Corporate Vice President Joe Stone.
. . . . .
Over two days, the players – divided into teams for Africa, Brazil, China, the EU, India, the U.S., international business and investors, and multilateral institutions – crafted their policy responses as delegations engaged in intensive negotiations.
Of course, working “globally” turned out to be the most beneficial.
Cooperation mostly won the day over the short term individual advantage. Teams pledged to build international information networks and early warning systems on hunger and crops together, invest jointly in smart agricultural technology and build up global food stocks as a buffer against climate shocks.
In the face of a steep price spike with looming global food shortages in 2022, the EU at one point suspended its environmental rules for agriculture and introduced a tax on meat. Both measures were quickly reversed in 2025, as harvests went back to normal and tensions eased in the hypothetical universe.
Carbon and meat taxes are “a possibility.”
The most eye-catching result, however, was a deal between the U.S., the EU, India and China, standing in for the top 20 greenhouse gas emitters, to institute a global carbon tax and cap CO2 emissions in 2030.
“We’ve learned that a carbon tax is a possibility in years ahead,” acknowledged Stone. “But before we can consider moving ahead with a measure like that, we must study it and understand it much better. We have to avoid sudden market distortions and unforeseen consequences.”
Stone said he was impressed with the complexity of the game and the second and third order consequences of some of the decisions that were taken. “Take the meat tax Europe wanted to impose, and think through that. What meat are you going to tax – does that mean poultry and beef or aquaculture as well? Where do you levy the tax, where does the money go, what are the unintended consequences?”
The game was built over the course of months, with maximal realism in mind. The scenario was extrapolated from events that have actually occurred in the real world, such as the food crisis of 2008-2009 or the recent string of hottest years and months on record.
Cargill economist Tim Bodin, who helped design the game and sat on the judges’ panel that evaluated the team’s moves, said he was surprised by the degree of cooperation. “Most people started out with a short-term perspective, but transitioned to long-term measure pretty quickly – they started working to strengthen resiliency instead of just putting out fires.”
Keep in mind, this press release and the exercise took place in 2015 yet it’s almost as if they were reading the script for 2020.
The fact is, we know there is an agenda for all of these things – food shortages, meat tax, global carbon tax and if COVID has been anything, it has been the most helpful little virus to ever have existed. That is, as long as you’re a member of the global feudal overlords. If you’ve been reading my articles recently, I’d encourage you to pay attention to what’s being said. Self-reliance is about to become a whole lot more important.

(Scott Hounsell) Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, a county that Trump won by over 30 points in 2016, has had a “snafu” in the distribution of ballots. The ballots, which were supposed to be sent out this week to voters, never arrived.
County officials blamed the lost ballots on an independent contractor responsible for distributing the ballots, saying that the ballots were not lost — rather, they were never sent out. The officials stated that the issue was resolved, and that ballots should begin being sent out Friday morning, but did not state when the process would be completed by or when they expected to be all caught up. They only said that they expected Mid-West Direct (the vendor) to be able to get through the backlog over the weekend, and for the process to run smoothly from that point forward.
We all know that, if this were a Democrat-heavy county, this would have made national news. Trump won Pennsylvania by about 45,000 votes in 2016, so a 60,000-vote, alleged mistake could decide the outcome of the election for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. There should be more scrutiny placed on the mail vendor, Mid-West Direct, to ascertain exactly what may have led to the problem in the first place. It is not clear if Mid-West Direct only processes the ballots for mailing as provided by the county or whether or not they produce ballots and mail them from data provided from the county.
If the ballots were to be provided this week and were not, this could lead to a challenge in the courts to extend the deadline for the ballots to be returned. In neighboring Allegheny County, home to Pittsburgh and a Democrat-heavy area, mailed ballots on September 24th, 12 days before Westmoreland County even disclosed the issue with the unsent ballots. That means that an argument can be made for an extension of at least three or four days for the delay, if not closer to 10 or 12 days, for the difference from other counties that distributed ballots earlier.
This is the third, 6-figure voter mistake in a battleground state this week. Yet, somehow, we are supposed to have confidence in officials’ ability to conduct this process without screwing it up or opening it up to massive fraud. Excuse me for not buying it.
(Sandeep Dhawan) Today every free country is looking at China in disbelief. The CPC and XI Jinping have opened up a number of fronts, more than they can afford. China faces humongous challenges in the aftermath of the pandemic. Unemployment is going through the ceiling, and demonstrations against the government are on the rise. PLA veterans are dissatisfied, and Wuhan citizens are still looking for millions of missing relatives. Anger amongst Uighur is likely to implode anytime soon, and Tibetans are ready to move beyond peaceful demonstrations. Hong Kong is on the boil. Indian and Taiwanese forces are at the highest alert.
So what could be better than giving a call for ’Pax Sinica’. Taking the nationalism to such heights that citizens give up their anger and pain and look up to the leadership in awe.
These methods may work within China but among other nations it has provoked strong anti-China emotions. The fault lines in the Chinese armour are visible to all and ready for the exploitation.
Xi Jinping – Fault Line One
Biden is asked if voters deserve to know if he will pack the Supreme Court.
Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t possibly get any weirder…
Get this: Coronavirus internment camps on Canadian soil. Sounds impossible, but believe it or not, there’s a federal request for proposals (RFP) to construct them.
So if their intended existence is clear as day, the question then becomes: just who is destined to reside in these camps?
Ontario MPP Randy Hillier (Lamarck-Frontenac-Kingston) raised this issue during question period in the Ontario legislature a few days ago. He received strange, evasive answers, and some of his questions were just flat-out ignored. We have the video to prove it.
Just what are Justin Trudeau’s Liberals up to this time? And why is the Doug Ford Progressive Conservative government so reluctant to offer answers?
Surely the provinces and territories were consulted on such a massive undertaking… right?
The lack of answers aren’t just concerning, they’re disturbing. The hallmark of any democracy is transparency and the only thing crystal clear about this story is that everything is still firmly in the shadows.

I want to provide you some very important information. I’m a committee member within the Liberal Party of Canada. I sit within several committee groups but the information I am providing is originating from the Strategic Planning committee (which is steered by the PMO).
I need to start off by saying that I’m not happy doing this but I have to. As a Canadian and more importantly as a parent who wants a better future not only for my children but for other children as well. The other reason I am doing this is because roughly 30% of the committee members are not pleased with the direction this will take Canada, but our opinions have been ignored and they plan on moving forward toward their goals. They have also made it very clear that nothing will stop the planned outcomes.
The road map and aim was set out by the PMO and is as follows:
– Phase in secondary lock down restrictions on a rolling basis, starting with major metropolitan areas first and expanding outward. Expected by November 2020.
– Rush the acquisition of (or construction of) isolation facilities across every province and territory. Expected by December 2020.
– Daily new cases of COVID-19 will surge beyond capacity of testing, including increases in COVID related deaths following the same growth curves. Expected by end of November 2020.
– Complete and total secondary lock down (much stricter than the first and second rolling phase restrictions). Expected by end of December 2020 – early January 2021
– Reform and expansion of the unemployment program to be transitioned into the universal basic income program. Expected by Q1 2021.
– Projected COVID-19 mutation and/or co-infection with secondary virus (referred to as COVID-21) leading to a third wave with much higher mortality rate and higher rate of infection. Expected by February 2021.
– Daily new cases of COVID-21 hospitalizations and COVID-19 and COVID-21 related deaths will exceed medical care facilities capacity. Expected Q1 – Q2 2021.
– Enhanced lock down restrictions (referred to as Third Lock Down) will be implemented. Full travel restrictions will be imposed (including inter-province and inter-city). Expected Q2 2021.
– Transitioning of individuals into the universal basic income program. Expected mid Q2 2021.
– Projected supply chain break downs, inventory shortages, large economic instability. Expected late Q2 2021.
– Deployment of military personnel into major metropolitan areas as well as all major roadways to establish travel checkpoints. Restrict travel and movement. Provide logistical support to the area. Expected by Q3 2021.
Along with that provided road map the Strategic Planning committee was asked to design an effective way of transitioning Canadians to meet a unprecedented economic endeavor. One that would change the face of Canada and forever alter the lives of Canadians. What we were told was that in order to offset what was essentially an economic collapse on a international scale, that the federal government was going to offer Canadians a total debt relief. This is how it works: the federal government will offer to eliminate all personal debts (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc) which all funding will be provided
to Canada by the IMF under what will become known as the World Debt Reset program. In exchange for acceptance of this total debt forgiveness the individual would forfeit ownership of any and all property and assets forever. The individual would also have to agree to partake in the COVID-19 and COVID-21 vaccination schedule, which would provide the individual with unrestricted travel and unrestricted living even under a full lock down (through the use of photo identification referred to as Canada’s HealthPass) .
Committee members asked who would become the owner of the forfeited property and assets in that scenario and what would happen to lenders or financial institutions, we were simply told “the World Debt Reset program will handle all of the details”. Several committee members also questioned what would happen to individuals if they refused to participate in the World Debt Reset program, or the HealthPass, or the vaccination schedule, and the answer we got was very troubling. Essentially we were told it was our duty to make sure we came up with a plan to ensure that would never happen. We were told it was in the individuals best interest to participate. When several committee members pushed relentlessly to get an answer we were told that those who refused would first live under the lock down restrictions indefinitely. And that over a short period of time as more Canadians transitioned into the debt forgiveness program, the ones who refused to participate would be deemed a public safety risk and would be relocated into isolation facilities. Once in those facilities they would be given two options, participate in the debt forgiveness program and be released, or stay indefinitely in the isolation facility under the classification of a serious public health risk and have all their assets seized.
So as you can imagine after hearing all of this it turned into quite the heated discussion and escalated beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed before. In the end it was implied by the PMO that the whole agenda will move forward no matter who agrees with it or not. That it wont just be Canada but in fact all nations will have similar road maps and agendas. That we need to take advantage of the situations before us to promote change on a grander scale for the betterment of everyone. The members who were opposed and ones who brought up key issues that would arise from such a thing were completely ignored. Our opinions and concerns were ignored. We were simply told to just do it.
All I know is that I don’t like it and I think its going to place Canadians into a dark future.
Vancouver, Canada·Posted Today, October 14
So why are federal agencies continuing to block us from learning about using natural medicine to stay healthy?
(Alliance For Natural Health) Following the announcement that President Trump tested positive for COVID-19, reports tell us that he is receiving Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody, which is not yet FDA-approved, in addition to zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and aspirin as a daily preventative. The president is presumably receiving the best medical care available, and this regimen includes natural medicine. It is scandalous that federal agencies are gagging doctors who dare to mention the benefits of these vital medicines for COVID-19 prevention and treatment.
President Trump’s regimen does not seem to include hydroxychloroquine or quercetin. We’ve reported in the past that quercetin and hydroxychloroquine work by helping get zinc into cells. High concentrations of zinc inside cells inhibit the replication of RNA viruses such as COVID-19, but due to zinc’s other characteristics, cells do not typically tolerate high levels of this mineral. Since Trump took hydroxychloroquine before, is he taking it without mentioning it?
The inclusion of melatonin is interesting. Research suggests that it may be useful as a preventative, and there is good research behind it as an anti-inflammatory that is rarely mentioned; an exception is Frank Shallenberger MD, prominent natural medicine doctor, who has recommended it.
The doctors added Remdesivir to the treatment list after the first list of treatments mentioned above was released. Why was it added? Could there have been a fear that if it were not included it would spoil the commercial prospects of the drug? We know that the drug failed to cure in trial although it was found to shorten hospital stay by three days.
It is shameful that the president’s own doctors include a number of natural medicines like vitamin D in his treatment regimen, but federal agencies block us from learning about these treatments. Studies show, for example, that COVID-19 deaths correlate almost perfectly with vitamin D level, yet the FDA and FTC have sent warning letters to doctors and individuals who share basic information about the ability of vitamin D to help prevent or treat COVID-19. (You can find information about how natural medicines can help with COVID-19 on our website here.)
If we have any hope of improving healthcare in this country, this arrangement needs to change.

Tucker Carlson at Fox News did a good take down:
A Biden/Harris administration would bring America to her knees
Two-hundred-and-forty-four years ago, the resolve, courage, and wisdom of your Founding Fathers forever changed the course of history. For the first time, with the ratification of your Declaration of Independence, mankind was offered an unmatched societal ideal. Human beings were recognized for what we truly are by nature: all created free and equal, endowed with unalienable rights derive from our Creator. With your Constitution, your Founders sealed these God given rights, and protected them by instituting a limited form of self-government along with a robust justice system.
According to company data, Meng was with the California Public Employees’ Retirement System or CalPERS for less than two years, during which he helped manage pension and health benefits for more than 1.6 million California public employees, retirees and their families, with the total funds amounting to about $360 billion USD.
Meng, who mentioned a desire to “spend time with his family” and “work on his health” as a reason for his resignation, will be replaced in the meantime by Dan Bienvenue, CalPERS has confirmed.
A Chinese-born US citizen, Meng’s employment with CalPERS was marred with controversy after it was found that he worked for three years as the Deputy Chief Investment Officer of China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE), which manages Beijing’s U.S. Treasury security holdings.
On Sunday the #ProudBoys hashtag went viral in North America as LGBTQI+ users included it on photos of their significant others or wedding days and other pride imagery.
‘Look at these cute lil #ProudBoys,’ Bobby Berk, a host of the popular Netflix show Queer Eye, wrote on Sunday, alongside a photo with his husband. ‘Retweet and make this hashtag about love, not hate.’
The official Twitter account of the Canadian Armed Forces in the United States shared an image of a serviceman kissing his partner, captioned with emojis of the Canada flag and rainbow pride flag and the hashtag #ProudBoys.
‘If you wear our uniform, know what it means. If you’re thinking about wearing our uniform, know what it means,’ the organization said in a follow-up tweet. ‘Love is love.’
An internal report from the Canadian military in November 2018 found 53 members were found to have made discriminatory statements or were linked to hate groups including the Proud Boys and anti-immigrant group Soldiers of Odin.
The mother of Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese MD/PhD virologist who fled China and published evidence that COVID-19 was created in a lab, says that the Chinese Communist Party has arrested her mother.
“According to Mr. Miles Guo, the CCP arrested Dr. Limeng Yan’s mother in mainland China, allegedly as a retribution on Dr. Yan, the Hong Kong virologist, Chinese Whistleblower and CCP COVID-cover-up debunker,” reports gnews.org – which has been described as “Guo’s media outlet.”
Guo made the comments during an appearance alongside former Trump strategist Steve Bannon on an episode of “War Room Pandemic.”
Last month, Yan appeared on Fox News, where she told host Tucker Carlson that COVID-19 is a “Frankenstein” virus designed to target humans, and that it was intentionally released.
“It could never come from nature,” she Yan – who worked with coronavirus at the University of Hong Kong
“There is evidence left in the genome” – which Yan detailed in a 26-page scientific paper co-written with three other Chinese scientists. “They don’t want people to know this truth. Also, that’s why I get suspended [from Twitter], I get suppression. I am the target that the Chinese Communist Party wants disappeared.”
When Carlson asked her why she believes the virus made it’s way out of the Wuhan lab, Dr. Yan said “I worked in the WHO reference lab, which is the top coronavirus lab in the world at the university of Hong Kong. And the things I got deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak – I had my intelligence through my network in China, involved in the hospitals, institutes and also government.”
“Together with my experience, I can tell you – this is created in a lab.”
Dr. Yan fled Hong Kong on April 28 on a Cathay Pacific flight to the United States. She believes her life is in danger, and that she can never go back home.
(H/t: Arlin Report) Peter Schweizer, bestselling author and president of the Government Accountability Institute, is out with a bombshell documentary that exposes the Biden family’s relationship with China “and the sinister business deals that enriched them at America’s expense.”
Speaking about his findings during an interview with Fox News’s Jesse Watters, the Clinton Cash author said the Biden family’s ties to China reveal corruption that is “much worse than Ukraine.”
The main takeaway from the 41-minute film, which is available on YouTube, is that the Bidens made a great deal of money from the Chinese government, which has serious “national security implications.”
“We’re not talking about Chinese businesses,” he said, “this happened while Joe Biden was the point person on Obama administration policy toward China.”
Schweizer noted what happened is not “rank and file corruption we’ve gotten used to,” like a politician’s kid becoming wealthy.
“In addition to the Bidens making money, Hunter Biden entered into a business partnership, he was on the board of directors of a Chinese investment firm called BHR that was funded by the Chinese government, and what did they do? They started acquiring companies that were beneficial to the Chinese military, they were the anchor investor in something called China General Nuclear, which ended up being charged by our FBI for stealing nuclear secrets in the United States,” he explained. “They ended up buying part of an American duel use technology company, meaning it produces technology that has civilian and military applications, they ended up buying that for the benefit of the Chinese military.”
Watters explained that Schweizer’s research is not just “conjecture” but based on “corporate records, financial documents, legal briefings, and court papers.” The Bidens’ ties to China have “very real national security implications,” Schweizer said, adding that they were “prepared and willing to make money even if it damaged our military posture vis-à-vis the Chinese who are our chief rivals on the global stage.”
The State of California will study reparations to black Americans, thanks to a bill signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Gavin Newsom.
AB 3121 will create a nine-member “Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans, with a Special Consideration for African Americans Who are Descendants of Persons Enslaved in the United States,” according to the text of the bill.
California was admitted to the Union in 1850 as a free state and has no history of legal slavery.
As the state Department of Parks and Recreation notes on its website (original emphasis):
In 1849, Californians sought statehood and, after heated debate in the U.S. Congress arising out of the slavery issue, California entered the Union as a free, non-slavery state by the Compromise of 1850.
California became the 31st state on September 9, 1850. The Golden State’s rich history has since been shaped by people of every ethnic background who traveled here seeking economic, social and educational opportunity, and a life of quality and breathtaking beauty.
Despite California’s free history, the reparations task force is assigned the mission of evaluating the history and impact of slavery on the United States as a whole.
The goal, as with many California policies, is to be a model for liberal policies elsewhere — or, as Newsom said, according to The Hill, to be “a paradigm that we hope will be resonant all across the United States.”
There is at least one problem, however: the criteria for selection to the nine-member task force appear to be racial, and California’s constitution currently bans discrimination on the basis of race. (That may change, if voters approve Proposition 16 in November.)
The text of AB 3121 states: “Members shall be drawn from diverse backgrounds to represent the interests of communities of color throughout the state.”
Project Veritas has uncovered a ballot harvesting scheme by the political allies and associates of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) with the help of a whistle blower, Snapchat videos, and undercover recordings.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law on Saturday requiring California to house transgender inmates in prisons based on their gender identity — but only if the state does not have “management or security concerns.”
The founder of a Black Lives Matter group in Atlanta has been charged with misappropriating donations solicited through Facebook on behalf of the social justice cause.
32 year old Sir Maejor Page has been arrested by the FBI on fraud and money laundering charges after he used $200,000 in BLM donations on “food, dining, entertainment, clothing, furniture, a home security system, tailored suits and accessories,” according to Fox News.
He was arrested in Toledo after the Toledo FBI office opened an investigation last year on a tip they received from a cooperating witness. Page founded Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta in 2016 and had taken in more than $466,000 in total donations in June, July and August alone.
FBI agent Matthew Desorbo said in the agency’s complaint against Page: “In sum, Page has spent over $200,000 on personal items generated from donations received through BLMGA Facebook page with no identifiable purchase or expenditure for social or racial justice.”
Page took in the donations “for George Floyd” according to his Facebook page. Instead the money was diverted to things like a home security system (ironic, given the looting and riots), dining and clothing. He also used $112,000 of the money to purchase a house for himself in Toledo, Ohio.
BLM of Greater Atlanta lost its tax exempt status in 2019 for failing to submit its IRS 990 tax returns. Despite this, Page had become a “familiar face” at BLM marches in Atlanta. He was even part of a group that ultimately met with former Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed to demand changes in policing.
What are you going to tell us next, that throwing a brick through the window of an Old Navy and stealing T-Shirts isn’t a path to racial justice either?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has undone months of bipartisan work to end Communist China’s most effective influence operations on America’s college campuses.
Senator John Kennedy’s (R-Louisiana) CONFUCIUS Act, authored to curtail the activities of Communist China’s Confucius Institutes on college campuses, passed the Senate unanimously back in June.
The House companion bill appeared poised for similar passage in the House, with sponsorship by former Clinton administration official Rep. Donna Shalala (D-Florida).
Unfortunately the radical wing of the Democrat party in the US House of Representatives seized control of the process in that chamber and have effectively killed the CONFUCIUS Act.
The CONFUCIUS Act targeted Confucius Institutes on college campuses that were denying intellectual freedom and running influence operations on behalf of Communist China.
It is beyond troubling that Nancy Pelosi and the radical wing of the Democrat party have chosen to side with Communist China in denying American college students intellectual freedom and endangering American security by allowing these influence operations to infiltrate our halls of higher learning.
Sorry folks, this one is two hours long but well worth your valuable time.
The discussion begins at the 10:52 mark and can be comfortably followed at 1.75X
TINVOWOOT, (there is no voting our way out of this)
– No one is coming to save us
– Everything is your responsibility
– We’re screwed until their parasitic system goes away
– Get harder than all the problems
– There’s gonna be a fight
– Kill who needs to be killed
– Save who needs to be saved
– Let’s WIN!
– Screw everyone who stood by and watched
– Always be working
In other words, never be anyone’s bitch.
Can anyone explain what Powell said today… “It’s hard For The Fed To Lend To U.S. Small Business” Meanwhile, the Fed is BACKDOOR bailing out mega-corporations via buying their debt?!!
(Greg Robb) Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Tuesday the central bank would have to start from scratch if Congress wants it to make smaller loans to U.S. companies.
Democrats, led by House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters of California, want the Fed to do lend more for companies hurt by the coronavirus.
At a hearing on Tuesday, Waters suggested that the Fed and Treasury Department lower the minimum size of the loans under the Main Street Lending Program to $100,000 from the current $250,000 threshold.
Powell pushed back on this idea.
He said that there was little demand for loans below $1 million. And lowering the threshold would mean the Fed would have to start over with the program.
“Extending credit in those small quantities would require a facility built from the ground that would be quite different than Main Street,” Powell said.
“It wouldn’t look like the current Main Street facility now. It’s just a very different kind of thing,” he added.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said “there’s not more we can do” to make the Fed’s emergency lending programs more used.
Mnuchin said some of the $454 billion allocated for the lending program could be shifted to better use.
Some lawmakers have criticized the Treasury for not wanting the lending program to take losses. But Mnuchin stessed this wasn’t the case.
“We do expect to take losses on that,” he said.
Powell said smaller business loans would be better handled with grants from the Paycheck Protection Program, which provided about $500 billion in loans to small businesses that could be forgiven if they did not lay off their employees.
“Trying to underwrite the credit of hundreds of thousands of very small businesses would be very difficult,” Powell said. He said many of these small loans are based on personal promises.
The PPP program expired in August and reauthorizing it has been held up because Democrats and Republicans can’t reach agreement on another coronavirus relief package.
Both Powell and Mnuchin told lawmakers it was not easy for the federal government to craft an aid program for the commercial real estate sector.
“It’s an issue. We don’t have a solution. I wish we did,” Mnuchin said.
The Treasury Secretary said reauthorizing the PPP program might be the answer so that firms can pay their rent and landlords can pay their mortgages.
The Pentagon redirected most of its $1 billion in pandemic funding to defense contractors who exchanged the money for jet engine parts, body armor, dress uniforms and other military needs, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday.
The CARES Act passed by Congress in March granted the Department of Defense $1 billion to both prevent and get ready to respond to the coronavirus, but the Post reported that in the weeks that followed, hundreds of millions of the taxpayer money was instead utilized to obtain military supplies.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
(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.

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.
