28 Million Mail-In Ballots Went Missing in Last Four Elections .By Mark HemingwayApril 24, 2020 Between 2012 and 2018, 28.3 million mail-in ballots remain unaccounted for, according to data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. The missing ballots amount to nearly one in five of all absentee ballots and ballots mailed to voters residing in states that do elections exclusively by mail. States and local authorities simply have no idea what happened to these ballots since they were mailed – and the figure of 28 million missing ballots is likely even higher because some areas in the country, notably Chicago, did not respond to the federal agency’s survey questions. This figure does not include ballots that were spoiled, undeliverable, or came back for any reason. www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2020/04/24/28_million_mail-in_ballots_went_missing_in_last_four_elections_143033.html#!
Controversy For Square? Jack Dorsey Accused Of Taking Too Much Money From Partnered Retailers Square Inc., the mobile payment company co-founded by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, has been accused of holding 20-30% of the money it collects from retailers. Despite company efforts to explain this practice, it is nonetheless facing strong criticism for taking too much money during harsh economic times. A petition against the issue has begun circulating amongst companies that utilize Square and has already garnered 1,300 signatures. “Small businesses can barely survive as it is, and now that Square, Inc. is withholding funds, many more small businesses are going to be closing because of Square,” the petition reads. In a blog post Tuesday, Square called the practice “rolling reserve” and explained that it is done to ensure against “risky sellers.” According to the company, these types of sellers include those that take early payments for certain services and those that deal in goods that are “prone to disputes.” “The vast majority of our sellers don't fit this profile,” the statement explained. “For the small number who do, we put in place reserves that allow them to continue processing with Square (as opposed to being deactivated, as many financial institutions will do), particularly during uncertain times.” These reserves are released back to sellers they are taken from on a “rolling basis” over a number of days, as many as 120 days. A report from the New York Times has shed light on the practice, with some small businesses claiming to have been disproportionately impacted by it. One company, Legal Knock, claimed that despite it never having a request for a refund, Square withheld $4,000 in rolling reserve last month. It further claims that Square was difficult to reach during this time and, once they did respond, did not provide a satisfactory explanation. www.ibtimes.com/controversy-square-jack-dorsey-accused-taking-too-much-money-partnered-retailers-2999225
Cuban Freedom Fighter Warns: Open Your Eyes, America… This Is How It Begins Open your eyes, America – the “Land of Opportunity” that immigrants like myself came to revere is on the cusp of sadly being lost to history. As thousands take to the streets in protest (a constitutionally protected right), I’m fearful that we have lost our way, protesting for all the wrong reasons – gravitating closer and closer toward a socialist and/or communist government. No matter how many times director Michael Moore says it, Cuba is not a beacon of hope; it is not an economic success story. As a Cuban refugee, I can confidently deliberate Cuba’s post-revolutionary downfall and the horrid impacts of communism. I am a freedom fighter and not aligned with any political party. I was born in a Cuba that was a beautiful democracy, run very similarly to what we have here in the United States. There were people on the right and the left, and they disputed political ideas; however, it was always done with mutual respect. In the late 1940s and early 1950s Cuba began to shift politically; it was taken hostage by an extreme left looking to destroy the good that Cuba stood for. Similar to what we are seeing in the U.S. with organizations such as antifa, this hate-filled ideology lived to agitate, defame and destroy. They would label you with vile and derogatory terms should you not conform – sound familiar? I saw this poison first-hand, watching it corrupt an entire society in ways that nobody ever would have expected. You have to ask how this happened in a country where people are highly educated, society is functioning, and all established institutions protect the less capable, sick, and elderly. What happened? Like other great empires, they self-destructed. It begins with a small group, like a tiny cancer cell – it spreads throughout the body, consuming all nutrients, destroying the immune system. I saw how they abused people using their own freedoms against them, all because you simply didn’t agree with the way they were thinking. One morning we woke up to a different system, a system of government control — annulling every established institution and replacing them with what they thought would function. They destroyed what cost so many lives in the past for their own egos to prove that they could do something better in their own game of control – the same methods of terrorism against the population the government used to control every private industry. They created the worst disaster anyone could imagine, reducing everyone to such poverty in a once-rich country. Citizens had to wait for hours in line to buy a loaf of bread. This is not a tale, not in a book I read — it is my own experience. I see this now when I turn on the television here, events repeating with the same small groups dividing our citizens and trying to destroy by creating chaos. What started as a “peaceful protest” ended up in the most dramatic destruction of property and abuse of the authorities. When citizens cross the line and cease respecting our laws and attack the principles of this society, that is the beginning of the end of that society. Despite our political divides, why is it that Cuban-Americans vote overwhelmingly for conservative candidates as opposed to progressives? Open your eyes America, those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. pjmedia.com/columns/juliodelmarmol/2020/06/23/cuban-freedom-fighter-warns-open-your-eyes-america-this-is-how-it-begins-n568548
U.S. Army Soldier Charged with Terrorism Offenses for Planning Deadly Ambush on Service Members in His Unit U.S. Army Private Ethan Melzer Sent Sensitive U.S. Military Information to Members of a Neo-Nazi Group in an Attempt to Facilitate a “Mass Casualty” Attack on Melzer’s Army Unit The Department of Justice announced today the unsealing of an indictment charging Ethan Melzer, 22, of Louisville, Kentucky, for allegedly planning an attack on his U.S. Army unit by sending sensitive details about the unit – including information about its location, movements, and security – to members of an extremist organization named Order of the Nine Angles (O9A), an occult-based neo-Nazi and white supremacist group. Melzer is charged with conspiring and attempting to murder U.S. nationals, conspiring and attempting to murder military service members, providing and attempting to provide material support to terrorists, and conspiring to murder and maim in a foreign country. The FBI and the U.S. Army thwarted Melzer’s plot in late-May 2020, and the FBI arrested Melzer on June 10, 2020. The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Gregory Woods. “As the indictment lays out, Ethan Melzer plotted a deadly ambush on his fellow soldiers in the service of a diabolical cocktail of ideologies laced with hate and violence,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers. “Our women and men in uniform risk their lives for our country, but they should never face such peril at the hands of one of their own. The National Security Division is proud to support the efforts of those who disrupted this planned attack and to seek justice for these acts.” “As alleged, Ethan Melzer, a private in the U.S. Army, was the enemy within. Melzer allegedly attempted to orchestrate a murderous ambush on his own unit by unlawfully revealing its location, strength, and armaments to a neo-Nazi, anarchist, white supremacist group,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss for the Southern District of New York. “Melzer allegedly provided this potentially deadly information intending that it be conveyed to jihadist terrorists. As alleged, Melzer was motivated by racism and hatred as he attempted to carry out this ultimate act of betrayal. Thanks to the efforts of the agents and detectives of the JTTF, our partners in the Departments of Defense and State, and the career prosecutors of this office, a hate-fueled terrorist attack against American soldiers has been thwarted.” “As alleged, Ethan Melzer sought to facilitate a deadly mass attack on his fellow service members by disclosing sensitive information to multiple extremists, including al-Qa’ida. The FBI’s top priority remains protecting Americans from terrorist attacks, at home and abroad, and this case highlights the outstanding work of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces, along with our U.S. military partners, to identify and disrupt threats like this one against our men and women in uniform,” said Assistant Director Jill Sanborn of the FBI's Counterterrorism Division. “Melzer declared himself to be a traitor against the United States, and described his own conduct as tantamount to treason. We agree. He turned his back on his county and his unit while aligning himself with members of the neo-Nazi group O9A,” said FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Office William F. Sweeney Jr. “Today, he is in custody and facing a lifetime of service – behind bars – which is appropriate given the severity of the conduct we allege today.” “This case is another example of the international responsibilities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s New York Joint Terrorism Task Force,” said Dermot Shea, the Commissioner of the New York City Police Department. “Its FBI agents and New York City police detectives will travel anywhere in the world to bring terrorists to justice, in this case a soldier who is alleged to have forsaken his oath to the United States military and his fellow soldiers.” According to the criminal complaint and the indictment charging Melzer, which were unsealed today in Manhattan federal court: Melzer joined the U.S. Army in approximately 2018, and he joined O9A by approximately 2019. Members and associates of O9A have espoused violent, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, and Satanic beliefs, and have expressed admiration for both Nazis, such as Adolf Hitler, and Islamic jihadists, such as Osama Bin Laden, the now-deceased former leader of al Qaeda. Members and associates of O9A have also participated in acts of violence, including murders. www.justice.gov/opa/pr/us-army-soldier-charged-terrorism-offenses-planning-deadly-ambush-service-members-his-unit
Accidental drowning?? All 3 of them?? Couldnt the adults just stand up? IT IS AN ABOVE GROUND 4 FT POOL! East Brunswick, New Jersey: Three people found dead in swimming pool of house they just moved into The East Brunswick Police Department and Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office identified the victims as Bharat Patel, 62, his daughter-in-law Nisha Patel, 33, and her 8-year -old daughter. The manner of death was accidental and the result of drowning, the county Medical Examiner's Office said Tuesday. The family had moved into the home just 20 days earlier, police said. "This is a devastating day for our entire community and we are working to determine exactly what happened," said East Brunswick Police Chief Frank LoSacco. Monday afternoon, police received a call from a neighbor who heard screaming, police Lt. Frank Sutter told CNN. Officers arrived at the home and found the victims unresponsive in a pool. The three were pronounced dead shortly afterward. There was another family member living in the house, but authorities didn't say how that person was related to the victims. www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/east-brunswick-new-jersey-three-people-found-dead-in-swimming-pool-of-house-they-just-moved-into/ar-BB15Sznt A next-door neighbor — who said she did not hear any of the initial commotion — said on Tuesday that cops initially came to her door thinking the scream had originated from her home. “I told them not here, and they ran next door,” she said. Police attempted CPR but pronounced the three victims dead at the scene, authorities said. Mayor Brad Cohen told NJ.com that the “entire East Brunswick community is shocked and saddened.” “Our condolences go out to the family and may they find strength from the community that shares in their grief,” he said. At least a dozen friends and family members were seen arriving and leaving the home throughout the day on Tuesday. All politely declined to comment. Investigators originally suspected the victims had been electrocuted because the pool is above ground, law-enforcement sources said. When an electrician’s van pulled up to the house Monday, neighbors feared an electrical current may have doomed the family members. “It’s going around that they were electrocuted,” the family’s next-door neighbor, who asked that her name not be revealed, told The Post. “The fact that they had an electrician’s truck show up shortly thereafter — I mean, it wouldn’t make sense that three people just drowned right away like that, with an adult there, too,” neighbor Phil Peterson told CBS New York. The former owner who had sold the house to the family told The Post he never problems with the pool. Law-enforcement sources said the pool varied in depth, with a deep end or a section in the -middle that was several feet. Investigators have not determined how all three family members drowned, but were seeking to determine if they were not strong swimmers and panicked when reaching deeper water. nypost.com/2020/06/23/nj-family-found-dead-in-pool-died-from-drowning-medical-examiner/
Whistleblower Claims Chinese Communists Pay Vatican $2 Billion in Bribes www.breitbart.com/national-security/2020/06/23/whistleblower-claims-chinese-communists-pay-vatican-2-billion-in-bribes/ ROME — Exiled Chinese dissident Guo Wengui alleged this weekend the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “allocates $2 billion a year” to pay off the Vatican for its silence concerning Chinese atrocities. In a June 20th interview on The War Room, Mr. Guo said the CCP earmarks massive sums each year to win the allegiance of foreign countries including the Vatican, Italy, and Australia. Among them, the Vatican receives up to 2 billion dollars from the Chinese Communist Party every year, he said. “The Chinese Communist Party allocates 2 billion US dollars each year” to gain influence over the Vatican’s internal policy making and to pay for its silence on the CCP’s repression of religious freedom, said the controversial billionaire whistleblower. Guo has previously stated that China has drafted a complete strategy for world domination known by the initials “BGY,” which stands for Blue (control the Internet), Gold (buy influence with money), and Yellow (seduce key people with sex). Since 2014, the CCP has formulated internal policies to invest a certain percentage of trade with foreign countries in the BGY program to erode the local state system, Guo said Saturday, and the current BGY quota for the United States is 5%. According to data from the U.S. Trade Office, the total trade volume between China and the U.S. in 2018 was $7.37 trillion. If calculated according to 5%, the amount used for BGY in the United States would then be about $36.8 billion, Guo said. Guo also offered a similar calculation for Australia. “The trade volume between the CCP and Australia is about US $200 billion,” he said. “Previously, 1 percent was used for BGY, but it rose to 5 percent. That is, $10 billion was used for BGY.” According to Guo, these huge amounts of BGY funds are employed for a variety of uses, including bribing local officials, regulating media messaging, and controlling local resources. A 2019 report released by the International Cyber Policy Centre at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute revealed hundreds of Twitter accounts linked to the state-backed effort to denigrate pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong had formerly been used to target critics of the Chinese government, principally Guo Wengui. The accounts were part of a coordinated information campaign operating for more than two years to target Mr. Guo as well as jailed publisher Gui Minhai. “Those early efforts are an attempt to shape sentiment and the international narrative around these prominent critics of the Chinese government and to shape them in such a way as to influence the Chinese diaspora’s perception of these individuals,” said Jake Wallis, one of the report’s chief authors.
Mel Gibson axed from next film over Winona Ryder’s disturbing claims Mel Gibson has been swiftly axed from his next film after actress Winona Ryder repeated disturbing claims about him in a new interview. Mad Max has been given the axe. Mel Gibson won’t be reprising his role in Netflix’s highly anticipated Chicken Run sequel, sources with knowledge of the production told The Wrap. The decision comes after Winona Ryder accused the 64-year-old Braveheart star of levelling anti-Semitic remarks at her during a 1995 Hollywood soiree – and subsequent calls for his cancellation on social media. Ryder has alleged that the 64-year-old actor made an anti-Semitic slur at her while they were at a party in 1995. The Stranger Things star dropped the bombshell, which was first reported by GQ in 2010, while discussing her experiences with anti-Semitism in Hollywood in an interview with the UK-based Sunday Times. “We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends, and Mel Gibson was smoking a cigar,” Ryder, 48, told the news outlet. She added that something came up about the Jewish faith, at which point the Mad Max actor said, “You’re not an oven dodger, are you?” – an apparent reference to the way Jewish prisoners were incinerated in Nazi death camps. At the same industry soiree, Ryder claims Gibson asked her friend, who is gay, “‘Oh, wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’” She’s also alleged that he later tried to apologise for his offensive statements. The Oscar-winning director’s representatives have since denied Ryder’s allegations in an emailed statement to The Post. “This is 100 per cent untrue,” they said, also claiming that the Stranger Things star lied in the 2010 GQ article in which she first mentioned the alleged incident. But in a statement of her own tendered to Variety today, Ryder stood by her claims. “I believe in redemption and forgiveness and hope that Mr. Gibson has found a healthy way to deal with his demons, but I am not one of them. Around 1996, my friend Kevyn Aucoin and I were on the receiving end of his hateful words. It is a painful and vivid memory for me. Only by accepting responsibility for our behavior in this life, can we make amends and truly respect each other, and I wish him well on this lifelong journey,” she said, as per Variety. Aucoin, a celebrity make-up artist, died in 2002. In the same interview, the Reality Bites star also claimed that an unnamed studio head said she “looked too Jewish” to star as a member of a blue-blooded family featured in an unspecified period piece she was shooting years ago. Gibson was first accused of making anti-Semitic remarks in 2006, when he was stopped for a DUI near Malibu, California. The actor-director told a police officer, “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” and referred to the female police officer on the scene as “sugar tits”. That wasn’t the first time Gibson’s rants ruffled feathers. People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” of 1985 infamously made homophobic comments to a Spanish newspaper in 1991, and said he wanted New York Times writer Frank Rich’s “intestines on a stick” after the critic skewered his biblical movie The Passion Of The Christ. In Gibson’s most notorious incident in 2010, tapes surfaced of epic misogynistic and racist tirades recorded by former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, with quotes including, “If you get raped by a pack of (N-words), it will be your fault.” Grigorieva claimed he had punched her in the head and face on multiple occasions. Gibson pleaded no contest to a charge of misdemeanour battery in 2011 and served no jail time. The Oscar-winner’s father, the late author Hutton Red Gibson, once gave an interview in which he declared the Holocaust “fiction”. n the original Chicken Run from 2000, Gibson voiced the character of Rocky, a plucky clucker who helped his fine-feathered friends fly the coop before it could be turned into a chicken pot pie factory. The “chick”-flick became the highest-grossing stop-motion-animation film of all time when it came out, and secured BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations. It’s unclear if the rest of the original cast, which includes Julia Sawalha, Phil Daniels, Imelda Staunton and Timothy Spall, will be returning to the 20-years-in-the-making sequel. However, filling the director’s chair is Sam Fell, who directed Dreamworks’ and Aardman’s 2006 animated comedy Flushed Away. Production on the second coming of Chicken Run is slated to begin next year, according to Netflix. www.news.com.au/entertainment/movies/mel-gibson-axed-from-next-film-over-winona-ryders-disturbing-claims/news-story/152b13f8b81f86b9e455ec2de0174963
John Bolton admits to illegally destroying documents in violation of the Presidential Records Act john bolton is being interviewed on fox and admitted to destroying his notes before leaving the admin claiming "burn bags" were very common, everyone had one in their office. when pressed by bret bair about violating the Presidential Records Act he said it wasn't a violation. but he was lying. his notes legally qualify as "documentary material" and should have been archived, but he torched them. according to the mockingbirds this past week, bolton is a "notorious note taker". turns out he has no notes at all. having trouble finding what kind of sentence this crime would carry though. www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/44/2201
I tend to agree with this anon A note taker doesn't torch notes. He just doesn't. Especially if he has a few more books he'd like to write in the coming years. They're someplace.
N.Korean leader suspends military action plans North Korea' state-run media says leader Kim Jong Un has decided to suspend plans for military action against South Korea. The report says Kim conveyed the decision at a preliminary meeting of the ruling party's Central Military Commission on Tuesday. North Korea had threatened to take a series of actions after a group of North Korean defectors in the South sent leaflets criticizing Kim across the border by balloons. The plans include a military deployment to a tourist area jointly developed with the South, and sending a large number of propaganda leaflets into the South. These measures are now likely to be put on hold. www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20200624_09/
Germany orders first local lockdown since easing… High levels of cortisol associated with greater risk of death German authorities on Tuesday ordered a new lockdown for an entire district — the first since easing coronavirus restrictions and a major setback to hopes of a swift return to normality. “For the first time in Germany, we will return an entire district to the measures that applied several weeks ago,” Armin Laschet, state premier of North Rhine-Westphalia, said. “We will reintroduce a lockdown in the district of Guetersloh,” he said, adding that the restrictions that cover 360,000 people and will be valid until at least June 30. High levels of cortisol associated with greater risk of death… LONDON – Could stress from the COVID-19 pandemic be making cases more severe for some patients? New research suggests that high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, are associated with a greater risk of death in coronavirus patients. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Best known for its role in regulating our body’s fight-or-flight response in stressful situations, it’s also important for controlling other bodily functions. Those include metabolism, blood pressure, salt and water balance, and the body’s immune system response. Too little and too much cortisol are both dangerous. High levels are particularly dangerous because they can alter immune system function and increase the risk of infection and serious illness. In the study, scientists collected blood samples from 535 hospital patients and examined the amount of cortisol in their blood. Of the sample, 403 of them had COVID-19. When scientists compared cortisol levels between patients with and without COVID-19, they found that patients with the virus have significantly higher cortisol levels. www.investmentwatchblog.com/germany-orders-first-local-lockdown-since-easing-high-levels-of-cortisol-associated-with-greater-risk-of-death/

Congressional Display of "Solidarity with Protesters" Goes Horribly Wrong by Anon You may have seen them with heads bowed, draped in stoles of colorful African kente cloth. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler*, and other Democrat leaders knelt in the marbled halls of Congress for 8 minutes, in solidarity with people protesting over the death of George Floyd.  (*Mr. Nadler stood, as he was unable to kneel.) Wait– Something's gone horribly wrong! This made-for-TV photo-op was an epic fail in three respects. Kente cloth of Ashanti slave traders Kente cloth is deeply intertwined with the history of the Ashanti nation. The Ashanti Empire (in Ghana, on today's map), emerged in the 17th century. The costly cloth, associated with Ashanti royalty, was woven from silk imported via the trans-Saharan trade route connecting West Africa to Asia through the Middle East. The Ashanti people practiced human slavery (as did many others of that era). Slaves from Africa were sold and transported along the very same trade route as Asian silk. Thus, kente cloth is also a powerful symbol of an African tradition of black-on-black human slavery. ,  At each State of the Union address, the Congressional Black Caucus and their Democrat allies flaunt the same kente cloth stoles. Is this a bad joke? Cultural appropriation Cultural appropriation is “the act of taking or using things from a culture that is not your own, especially without showing that you understand or respect this culture,” per the Cambridge Dictionary. “Cultural appropriation occurs when a more powerful person or institution projects the culture of a less powerful person,” wrote Dr. Luis Urrieta, professor of cultural studies at the University of Texas at Austin. He adds, “It also often involves obscuring or erasing the meaning behind the cultural item.”  It is undeniable that the Democrats' display of kente cloth—ancient symbol of African Ashanti slave-trading elites—is a blatant example of "obscuring or erasing the meaning behind the cultural item." Reenacting the Oppressor Role It is also curious that "taking a knee" has become a mandatory motif of progressive demonstrations. Curious, because of the deep symbolism that kneeling invokes. Those who watched disturbing video saw apparent victim George Floyd prone, with a policeman apparently kneeling on Floyd's neck. By kneeling, Congressional Democrats symbolically reenacted the last scene of George Floyd's life—only they took the role of oppressors. We Americans traditionally stand to honor our flag and our dignitaries; we kneel only in prayer. Our forebears soundly rejected Old World traditions of bowing to royalty in 1776, when 13 American colonies revolted against European royalty and asserted our God-given independence. Is the display of "taking a knee" poor taste, another bad joke, or perhaps they thought you wouldn't notice? ——————————  Kelen McBreen: Democrats Channel African Slave Traders In Kneeling BLM Photo Op, newswars.com/democrats-channel-african-slave-traders-in-kneeling-blm-photo-op/  O.Ekeocha: Nigerian Woman Scolds Democrats for Exploiting her Kente Tribe Scarves, twitter.com/obianuju/status/1270053042340139008  J.Achberger: Kente: Not Just Any Old Cloth, ultimatehistoryproject.com/kente-cloth-and-the-history-of-the-ashanti-people.html  Samantha Grasso: A comprehensive guide to understanding cultural appropriation, dailydot.com/irl/what-is-cultural-appropriation/
Technocrazy just keeps on trying… www.mintpressnews.com/mass-tracking-covi-pass-immunity-passports-slated-roll-15-countries/269006/ Mass-Tracking COVI-PASS Immunity Passports Slated to Roll Out in 15 Countries By all measures, the strategy has proven wildly successful and VST now enjoys strong favor in the highest circles of the UK government as evidenced by the ringing endorsement of former Prime Minister Theresa May, prominently displayed on the COVI-PASS website. More practically, VST now has a direct partnership with the UK government and has secured contracts to deploy its technology in 15 countries, including Italy, Portugal, France, India, the US, Canada, Sweden, Spain, South Africa, Mexico, United Arab Emirates and the Netherlands. In May, VST signed a deal with international digital health technology firm and owner of COVI-PASS, Circle Pass Enterprises (CPE) to integrate VST’s VCode into the biometric RFID-enabled “passports” which can be accessed via mobile phone or a key fob will flash colored lights to denote if an individual has tested negative, positive or is to be denied entry to public locations. Awarded the ‘Seal of Excellence’ by the EU, VCode® technology will ensure that all of our most sensitive personal and health information can be accessed by authorities at a distance, dispensing with messy and potentially dangerous face-to-face encounters with police or other enforcement personnel. Infusing the narrative So far, the concerns over the digital health passport’s threat to freedom and privacy have been lukewarm at best and it seems as if the world has already accepted that full-fledged population control methods such as these will simply be a fact of life. While the coronavirus pandemic has certainly done much to bring the public over to this way of thinking, the campaign to normalize this sort of Orwellian power-grab has been ongoing for many years and Bill Gates – who many media outlets have whitewashed out of stories related to these measures – has been at the forefront of its promotion. The Innovation for Uptake, Scale and Equity in Immunisation (INFUSE) project was launched in Davos, Switzerland in 2016. The program was developed by an organization funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation called GAVI (The Vaccine Alliance), which has been calling for a digital health ID for children along with partners in the broader !D2020 initiative like the Rockefeller Foundation and Microsoft. In a recent interview, the deputy director of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Hassan Damluji, derided the idea that the COVID-19 pandemic was in any way subsiding and even warned that, far from receding, the pandemic was “deep into wave three.” His remarks were specifically targeted to the very regions he oversees for the foundation, which include the Middle East and parts of Asia, which he stressed would be the focus of the next wave. Damluji was “most recently involved in a five-year fundraising cycle for GAVI,” an effort led by Saudi Arabia, whose investment he praised as a powerful “signal [that] others had an obligation to follow.” Gates concludes his editorial with a comparison to World War II, stating that said conflict was a “defining moment of our parents’ generation” as the COVID-19 pandemic is to ours, implying that the changes taking place now are akin to the Allied forces’ defeat of the Third Reich. Except, of course, that immunity passports or digital health certificates sound exactly like what Hitler wished for the most. After all, wasn’t the idea of a superior race based on considerations of superior health and vitality over the ostensibly sick and unfit? Hard to argue against the idea that a universal health passport is nothing less than the ultimate fulfillment of that dystopian nightmare.

Another Soros son Soros develops taste for Soulfresh investment. Date: Dec. 28, 2019 From: The Australian (National, Australia) Publisher: News Limited The family office of Robert Soros, the son of multi-billionaire investor George Soros, has joined a boutique London-based private equity firm in injecting just over $50m into the emerging Australian plant-based food business known as Soulfresh. Soulfresh is run by Didi Lo, formerly a Byron Bay-based chef who founded the company 17 years ago to capitalise on the rising demand from Australian consumers for organic and plant-based foods. The Melbourne-based Soulfresh business has 11 brands spread across fermented beverages, plant-based foods and drinks. Its "Living" beverages business generates half its revenues. Its stable of brands includes the Lo Bros kombucha range of drinks, the Nutty Bruce plant-based milk alternatives and a plant-based meat range known as Eaty that has been sold in Coles supermarkets since July. As part of its minority investment in Soulfresh, London-based private equity firm True will manage an undisclosed commitment from Soros Capital Management, Robert Soros's family office. Mr Soros, the eldest son of George Soros, stepped down as deputy chairman and president of his father's Soros Fund Management in 2017 to start his own firm. George Soros is best known as the man who "broke the Bank of England" by shorting billions of pounds in 1992. "We met with Soros Capital Management in New York," Mr Lo told The Weekend Australian. "It was a common meeting of minds. I was blown away by Robert Soros. He is a genuine, down-to-earth person that I really connected with. "They have lots of distribution assets in the US and play in a number of areas that will be very helpful for our push into North America. "They have also indicated they could contribute as an investor in a bigger way in the future if we want them to." As well as supplying the Australian market, Soulfresh distributes to Britain, France, Spain, New Zealand and South Africa. While its international operations now make up less than 10 per cent of revenues, this is set to more than quadruple following the investments from True and Robert Soros. "We see international growing to be 40-50 per cent of our overall business over the next three to four years. We are putting our own teams into these international markets," Mr Lo said. The chief financial and chief operating officer of Soulfresh is David Malinson, who joined the company in January. Mr Malinson stepped in as interim chief executive at dairy co-operative Murray Goulburn in April 2016 following the sudden resignation of CEO Gary Helou. Mr Lo said Mr Malinson had been a great addition to Soulfresh and had "helped enormously" in the group's search for an external investor, which ramped up in the second half this year. Soulfresh, which was advised on the deal by boutique Melbourne advisory firm Intrinsic Partners, run by former UBS banker Quentin Miller, has been in negotiations with potential investors for two years. "We have been a fully self-funded business for the past 17 years and the money we can generate in Australia to fund growth is now not enough to match the opportunity internationally," Mr Lo said. "There is absolutely no doubt we are going to be able to supercharge our international growth. We have been limiting a lot of that up until now. Plus we want to double down with what we are doing in Australia." Ten private equity firms were engaged in the deal process before Soulfresh settled on a transaction with True, a firm backed by blue-chip institutional investors and family offices with a retail and consumer bent. "I have been keen to find someone who has broad alignment with what we are trying to do," Mr Lo said. "True are so focused around this change in consumer behaviour and have an advisory service to major retailers globally such as Walmart in America, Marks & Spencers and Morrisons in the UK and Pick & Pay in South Africa. "Then they have this early-stage investment lab where they invest into a lot of different businesses. And they have a PE model in the middle to invest in mid-sized businesses like ourselves, to leverage them into big retailers and test these new technologies." Matt Truman, the co-founder and chief executive of True, said Soulfresh was "at the epicentre of the global health, wellness and sustainability mega-trends with a focus on R&D and innovation that is market-leading"."Our unique business model will allow us to genuinely add value for Didi and his team who have built a fantastic platform of brands with potential for rapid growth," Mr Truman said.
PizzaGate” is back, spreading on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok at levels that rival 2016; popping up in countries like Brazil, Italy and Turkey; and targeting celebs like Oprah, Ellen, Chrissy Teigen and Bill Gates in addition to Hillary Clinton
“PIZZAGATE IS BACK”
Deadly Move That Will Usher The World Into Madness Has Just Arrived-“Global Citizenship" Bill Gates Creates His Own Hitler Youth Through ‘Global Citizenship’ Children are then snared into individual subjection to “society.” Global citizen conveys a clear message to youth that their own life does not actually belong to them. Generosity towards one’s own community comes from “a greater cause” that has personal appeal or the endorsement of a celebrity. Compulsory compliance to these “volunteer programs” brainwashes youth to totally surrender; their lives are no longer their own. The state controls final authority of their actions. Upon joining Global Citizen they enticed with “Bill Gates recognizes that individuals have diverse passions. That is why the Global Citizen network will choose for you: some people…will pick women’s reproductive rights, some will pick agriculture. And then there are NGOs in each of those areas that you can volunteer for, give money to, and feel connected.” Teens are sent tweets, emails and Facebook messages encouraging them to get involved in these UN mandated programs. The targeted teens are given choices to be involved in such “worthy” endeavors as: 1. Sustainability 2. Food and hunger 3. Water and Sanitation 4. Health (i.e. vaccines) 5. Women and Girls (i.e. reproduction issues and negative population growth) 6. Education (i.e. Common Core) 7. Ebola Action Center (author’s note: And you thought we were done with Ebola). The Global Citizen Nights act as an exchange. They replace drug saturated raves. The switch up is that rather than destroying bodies with drugs, the youth destroy their minds with an onslaught of warped globalist propaganda. A central theme of the Global Citizen Nights is the deliberate condemnation of national independence (e.g. independence is so old school) and this comes at an age when young people’s minds are open to enticing extremist ideas without fully knowing how to consider them. Beware of Global Citizen and its ties to Agenda 21. …and protect your children from it. www.truthandaction.org/bill-gates-creates-hitler-youth-global-citizenship/2/
More Japan politicians admit accepting cash from ex-justice minister, but few resign While more and more politicians are admitting to accepting money in a vote-buying scandal involving husband-and-wife Japanese lawmakers Katsuyuki and Anri Kawai, many are sticking to a policy of "no comment." With two mayors already having resigned or having indicated their intention to resign, shockwaves are running throughout the couple's constituencies in Hiroshima Prefecture in western Japan. Katsuyuki is a former justice minister who is a lawmaker in the House of Representatives, and Anri is a legislator in the House of Councillors. Both were members of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), but left the party before they were arrested on suspicion of violating the Public Offices Election Law. The couple was arrested specifically on suspicion of handing out cash to 40 politicians in Hiroshima Prefecture, 21 of whom have told the Mainichi Shimbun that they accepted money from the couple. Hiroshi Kodama, the mayor of the Hiroshima Prefecture city of Akitakata, received 600,000 yen (approx. $5,600) from Katsuyuki. Kodama appeared at a June 26 press conference with a shaved head and said, "I have worried many people. I sincerely apologize." As for whether he was going to stay at his post, he told reporters, "I will decide after hearing the voices of my support association and city residents." About his shaved head, he said, "I thought that I must first show that I am remorseful, and decided to change my hairstyle." It is a Japanese tradition to shave one's head to show remorse or regret, particularly among men. Kazuyuki Sakikawa, the speaker of the Akitakata Municipal Assembly; Shingo Mito, the assembly's vice speaker; and assembly member Toshiharu Aohara all held news conferences to reveal that they had accepted cash from Katsuyuki. Sakikawa and Mito each met with Katsuyuki in the assembly speaker's office and the assembly vice speaker's office, respectively, in late March of 2019, where they received the money. Mito said he was told, "Please help us out." Aohara, meanwhile, met Katsuyuki in early June of the same year when Katsuyuki visited him at home. He was given posters and flyers, along with an envelope. When prosecutors pointed out that there had been 100,000 yen (approx. $930) in the envelope, Aohara says he admitted it and signed a statement. He has explained, "I burned the envelope after the election, so I don't know any details." Hiroshima Municipal Assembly members Osamu Taniguchi and Masaaki Okimune admitted in front of the media on June 26 that they, too, had accepted money from the Kawais. Okimune told a press conference that he accepted a total of 500,000 yen (approx. $4,700) on two different occasions from Katsuyuki. The first time was in April 2019, after he won a seat in the municipal assembly. Katsuyuki congratulated Okimune on the electoral victory at the latter's office and gave him 300,000 yen (approx. $2,800). The second time was in June, when Katsuyuki visited Okimune at home and said, "Please help out my wife." Katsuyuki left 200,000 yen (approx. $1,900) in cash at the house. Admitting that he wrote 3,000 postcards asking his acquaintances to vote for Anri in the 2019 upper house election, Okimune said, "I thought that if I returned the money, I would cause (Katsuyuki Kawai) to lose face. I used the money for day-to-day expenses." He added, "I felt like I should explain myself someday, but I'd been stopped from doing so by prosecutors. If I'm indicted, I'll resign." moar here mainichi.jp/english/articles/20200627/p2a/00m/0fp/013000c
Chaos erupts in Milwaukee during search for missing girls: Unruly mob hurls bricks at police officers, burns down home, shoots 2 teens Officers arrived at a Milwaukee-area home searching for two missing teens. The teens were reportedly last seen at the home, which people in the crowd said was a known sex-trafficking hotspot. During the search, officers were bombarded by bricks and verbally abused as a mob set fire to the structure. At least three people were shot in a related melee. According the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the gathering crowd included a "mix of neighbors observing the situation, people expressing frustration with police, and activists who'd marched in Milwaukee's racial justice protests." The outlet reported that the missing persons investigation "morphed" over a period of hours as "tensions about police treatment ran high" and "rumors spread online." "By nightfall, three people — including two 14-year-olds — had been shot, a house was set on fire, and police had fired tear gas and pepper spray on some members of a scattered crowd of hundreds gathered outside a Milwaukee house where police earlier conducted an investigation into two missing teenage girls," the Sentinel reported. Later, a 24-year-old man was shot near the scene as someone fired shots at his vehicle, police said, the paper reported. WISN-TV reported that people in the crowd began "throwing bricks and pieces of concrete at police." Someone or multiple someones also began firing guns in the crowd, striking three people. WISN reported that the teenage girls — ages 13 and 15 years — were located on Wednesday. WISN reported that there was no evidence the teens were ever at the house to begin with. www.theblaze.com/news/chaos-milwaukee-missing-girls-mob
PREPARE FOR COVID IN ALL MIGRANT DETENTION FACILITIES new get out of jail and enter the US free card A U.S District Court judge in the Central District of California ordered the federal government to release migrant children being held in detention for more than 20 days. The order calls for the children to be released by July 17 due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic. U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee, appointed to the Central District of California by President Barack Obama in 2009, ruled on Friday that the federal government cannot hold children in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities for more than 20 days, NBC News reported. Judge Gee cited concerns over the danger posed by the coronavirus pandemic. www.breitbart.com/border/2020/06/27/judge-cites-coronavirus-in-order-to-release-migrant-children-from-ice-detention/
John Wayne gave an interview to Playboy magazine in 1971 in which the Oscar-winning actor made comments that O.C. Democrats now view as “racist and bigoted.” BLM is a joke. Here is the section of Wayne’s interview that has incited the most controversy: “With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.” O.C. Democrats also called Wayne “anti-LGBT” and “anti-Indigenous.” In the 1971 interview, Wayne described the movie Midnight Cowboy as a “a story about two f*gs.” The Western star was also asked if he felt empathy for Native Americans. “I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them, if that’s what you’re asking. Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.”
THE DAY THE POLICE WERE NO LONGER NEEDED On August 19, 1966 - students launched a fight for social justice to fight for the rights of the oppressed in China. The patriarch system in China had been created by the 1% and held down women, minorities, and the working class. The students cried out for a revolution and change. They launched the Cultural Revolution. Students put a red band around their arm to stand in solidarity with the oppressed and called for a change on old ideas that they called the FOUR OLDS. The Four Olds were: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas. The movement was supported by the Chinese media Mass demonstrations and looting by the students ensued. Statues were torn down. Chinese architecture was destroyed. Classical literature and Chinese paintings were torn apart and burned. Temples were desecrated. The Cemetery of Confucius was attacked The corpse of the 76th-generation Duke Yansheng was removed from its grave and hung naked from a tree Wealthy homes were attacked and destroyed. Many families' long-kept genealogy books were burned to ashes. Public leaders who were considered to be oppressive were tried by angry mobs and vigilantes Three days later, August 22, 1966, a central directive was issued to stop police intervention. The police were disbanded in the city and the students formed a community solution called the RED GUARD. The RED GUARDS policed the communities and punished anyone who did not agree with their ideas. Even people that supported the movement, but had bad thoughts could be punished. Though many Christians supported the movement in the beginning, they quickly became the number one target of the RED GUARDS and public trials were held to condemn them to death. Many of those that were on board with the cause of the rebellion in the beginning saw that it was not really what they had signed up for, but by then it was too late. The power that the Red Guard wanted had already been given. More people died during the cultural revolution in China than any war, famine, or natural disaster in the history of man.
NATO 2030: How to Make a Bad Idea Worse Just when you thought the leaders of NATO could not push the limits of insanity any further, something like NATO 2030 is announced. After helping blow up the Middle East and North Africa, dividing the Balkans into zones of war and tension, turning Ukraine upside down using armadas of neo Nazis, and encircling Russia with a ballistic missile shield, the leaders of this Cold War relic have decided that the best way to deal with instability of the world is… more NATO. In a June 8th online event co-sponsored by the Atlantic Council, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced the launch of a planning project to reform NATO called NATO 2030. Stoltenberg told his audience that in order to deal with Russia and China’s strategic partnership which is transforming the global balance of power, “we must resist the temptation of national solutions and we must live up to our values: freedom, democracy and the rule of law. To do this, we must stay strong militarily, be more united politically and take a broader approach globally.” In the mind of Stoltenberg, this means expanding NATO’s membership into the Pacific with a high priority on the absorption of Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea into NATO’s dysfunctional family. It also means extending NATO’s jurisdiction beyond a military alliance to include a wider political and environmental dimension (the war on climate change is apparently just as serious as the war on terrorism and should thus be incorporated into NATO’s operating system). Analyzing China’s intentions through the most Hobbesian dark age lens on the market, Stoltenberg stated “they are investing heavily in modern military capabilities, including missiles that can reach all NATO allied countries. They are coming closer to us in cyberspace. We see them in the Arctic, in Africa… and they are working more and more together with Russia.” In spite of NATO’s Cold War thinking, Russia and China have continuously presented olive branches to the west over the years- offering to cooperate on such matters as counter-terrorism, space exploration, asteroid defense, and global infrastructure projects in the Arctic and broader Belt and Road Initiative. In all instances, these offers have been met with a nearly unanimous cold shoulder by the western military industrial complex ruling NATO and the Atlantic alliance. www.strategic-culture.org/news/2020/06/23/nato-2030-how-make-bad-idea-worse/
Mueller prosecutor: DOJ sentencing instructions for Roger Stone based on 'political considerations' The Justice Department’s sentencing instructions for Roger Stone “were based on political considerations," according to a member of special counsel Robert Mueller's team who led the successful prosecution of the longtime Trump associate. Aaron Zelinsky, who was a special assistant U.S. attorney in Washington, withdrew from the case in February, along with three other prosecutors following the Justice Department’s decision to walk back its sentencing reco mmendation of seven to nine years in prison. Zelinsky, who now works for the U.S. attorney’s office in Maryland, will testify before the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. “At the time of the events in question — February 2020, I was a career Assistant United States Attorney. I was not privy to discussions with political leadership at the Department of Justice. My understanding of what happened in United States v. Stone is based on two things,” Zelinsky’s prepared opening statement reads. “The first is what I saw with my own eyes: the unusual and unprecedented way that Roger Stone’s sentencing was handled by the Department of Justice. The second is what was told to me at the time by my supervisors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office: why the Department was treating Roger Stone differently from everyone else.” Zelinsky will testify that he saw the Justice Department “exerting significant pressure on the line prosecutors in the case to obscure the correct Sentencing Guidelines calculation to which Roger Stone was subject — and to water down and in some cases outright distort the events that transpired in his trial and the criminal conduct that gave rise to his conviction.” The DOJ official will also state that what he “repeatedly” heard was that Stone “was being treated differently from any other defendant because of his relationship to the President.” Zelinsky will say that the now-former acting U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, Timothy Shea, was “receiving heavy pressure from the highest levels of the Department of Justice to cut Stone a break, and that the U.S. Attorney’s sentencing instructions to us were based on political considerations.” Zelinsky will say he was told Shea was giving Stone “such unprecedentedly favorable treatment” because the U.S. attorney was “afraid of the President.” Zelinsky will say he and his fellow line attorneys “immediately and repeatedly raised concerns, in writing and orally, that such political favoritism was wrong and contrary to legal ethics and Department policy.” The Justice Department has denied such politicization existed. Attorney General William Barr publicly griped about Trump's commentary on the case after the president congratulated his top law enforcement official for "taking charge" of a case the president described as being out of control. “I have a problem with some of the tweets,” the attorney general said, noting that Trump's posts about DOJ business made it "impossible" to do his job. “The Stone case was prosecuted while I was attorney general — and I supported it,” Barr said. “I thought that was a righteous prosecution. And I was happy that he was convicted.” “I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr said. “I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody … whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the president.” In February, after the Justice Department recommended a prison sentence of up to nine years for Stone, Trump tweeted that he “cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!” The Justice Department then reversed itself, and the four line prosecutors withdrew. The department said its decision to reverse course was made before Barr was aware of Trump’s position, and the president denied placing any pressure on the agency. The Justice Department walked back the “unduly high” sentence recommendation, suggesting three to four years instead but ultimately leaving it up to the judge. www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/mueller-prosecutor-doj-sentencing-instructions-for-roger-stone-based-on-political-considerations judiciary.house.gov/uploadedfiles/zelinsky_opening_statement_hjc.pdf

Chief Justice John Roberts said yay to prostitution and sex trafficking and nay to "First Amendment Rights violation" under the shadow of Open Society's HIV/AIDS argument in 2013 Credit to X22's twatter post for attention to today's Supreme Court conclusion. twitter.com/X22Report/status/1277715467411566593 2013 PDF: supremecourt.gov/opinions/12pdf/12-10_21p3.pdf 2020 PDF: supremecourt.gov/opinions/19pdf/19-177_b97c.pdf – 2013 PDF: Roberts opinion is on pages 1 (4 on PDF) to 15 (18 on PDF) Via page 1 (or 4 on PDF) [June 20, 2013] CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS delivered the opinion of the Court. The United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003 (Leadership Act), 117 Stat. 711, as amended, 22 U. S. C. §7601 et seq., outlined a comprehensive strategy to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS around the world. As part of that strategy, Congress authorized the appropriation of billions of dollars to fund efforts by nongovernmental organizations to assist in the fight. The Act imposes two related conditions on that funding: First, no funds made available by the Act “may be used to promote or advocate the legalization or practice of prostitution or sex trafficking.” §7631(e). And second, no funds may be used by an organization “that does not have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking.” Via page 13-14 (or 16-17 on PDF) The Government suggests that the Policy Requirement is necessary because, without it, the grant of federal funds could free a recipient’s private funds “to be used to promote prostitution or sex trafficking.” Brief for Petitioners 27 (citing Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project, 561 U. S. 1, _–_ (2010) (slip op., at 25–26)). That argument assumes that federal funding will simply supplant private funding, rather than pay for new programs or expand existing ones. The Government offers no support for that assumption as a general matter, or any reason to believe it is true here. And if the Government’s argument were correct, League of Women Voters would have come out differently, and much of the reasoning of Regan and Rust would have been beside the point. – 2020 PDF: Kavanaugh's opinion is on pages 1 (3 on PDF) to 9 (11 on PDF) After enactment of the Leadership Act, plaintiffs challenged the Policy Requirement, alleging that it violated the First Amendment. In 2013, this Court agreed, concluding that the Policy Requirement ran afoul of the free speech principle that the Government “may not deny a benefit to a person on a basis that infringes his constitutionally protected . . . freedom of speech.” Agency for Int’l Development v. Alliance for Open Society Int’l, Inc., 570 U. S. 205, 214 (2013) (internal quotation marks omitted). Therefore, the Policy Requirement no longer applies to American organizations that receive Leadership Act funds, meaning that American organizations can obtain Leadership Act funds even if they do not have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking. media.8kun.top/file_store/fd13d0864bcb3783635cba115408640981b439fb17253e5570bc195a1dc7dd43.png

Chief Justice Roberts is connected to No Name and Graham connects Garland with Roberts. www.wikileaks.org/dnc-emails/emailid/197 As the Supreme Court races to issue opinions in more than 30 cases, Chief Justice John Roberts finds himself having to navigate issues as thorny as abortion, health care, affirmative action and immigration with a four-four split of conservative and liberal justices. Since the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia, the court has been left short-handed, with no obvious tie-breaker in a host of contentious cases. Roberts has made unanimity and collegiality on the court a priority since early in his tenure, and the loss of Scalia has put that to the test.

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) heaped praise for Merrick Garland after meeting privately with the Supreme Court nominee on Wednesday, but said he won’t change his mind on not moving his nomination this year. Graham, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said he told Garland that despite his credentials, the Senate won’t act on replacing deceased Justice Antonin Scalia until a new president is elected in November. “He’s a very nice man. He’s, I think, an honest, very capable judge,” Graham told reporters after his sit-down with Garland. He noted that Garland “worked well” with current Chief Justice John Roberts when both men were on the D.C. Circuit Court, “so there’s no beef with him.

Conservative justices questioned Obama's authority to use executive actions to shield some 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito seemed particularly concerned with language in the administration's guidance that said the program's recipients would be "lawfully present," which they suggested would contradict immigration law. "How is it possible to lawfully work in the United States without lawfully being in the United States?" Alito asked.

Not surprisingly, Roberts calls his own number more than anyone else’s and assigns the second-highest number to Anthony Kennedy, the pivotal justice on the ideologically divided court, according to a new study by Harvard law professor Richard J. Lazarus. On the other hand, Roberts has never assigned Sonia Sotomayor the court’s opinion in a major case in her six terms on the court, Lazarus found, an omission that he wrote ‘could be a bit portentous.’ In looking broadly at the chief justice’s 10 years on the job, Lazarus found that Roberts hesitates in assigning big decisions to the court’s most conservative and liberal members — Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas on the right, and Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the left.” – www.wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/457 DANA BASH: […] The frustration inside the McCain Campaign was really palpable because they felt like they had finally, yesterday, they had a message when it comes to energy.

5/5 PDF's hints of connections between HIV/AIDS argument and the impact of that in countries they mention in the PDFs as well as prostitution and sex trafficking levels. So obviously it makes sense as to why HIV/AIDS ran rampant in Sub-Saharan Africa since we know sex trafficking also is very high if not the highest there. That's why the DS wants to pour billions of dollars into stopping HIV/AIDS so they don't also get HIV/AIDS from their main source (or one of their main sources) of sex trafficking. Now we just need to connect it all and show how dirty John Roberts is, and why it's more likely (but still not proven) that he was the John Roberts on Epstein's flight logs. Regardless if that was him or not, these guys are SICK. opensocietyfoundations.org/who-we-are/financials Evidence: Africa has one of the world's highest rate of sex trafficking. Africa has one of the world's highest rates of HIV/AIDs infections. HIV/AIDS health organizations operate in HIV/AIDS heavy areas. Such as Africa. Kenya for example receives billions of dollars of aid from the US to HIV/AIDS health organizations whose policies do not specify against prostitution and sex trafficking. Sex traffickers make more money on non-HIV positive persons. Supposition: Some HIV/AIDS health organizations could be used to sex traffic. US aid to HIV/AIDS health organizations could be used to enable sex trafficking. Supporting evidence is adding the requirement to US funding to HIV/AIDS health organizations. Speculation: Sex traffickers in Kenya obviously don't want to move on from countries such as Kenya Sex traffickers want to make money. - Sex traffickers make more money with non-HIV positive persons. - Sex traffickers historically operate in Africa. - Sex traffickers could be using HIV/AIDS health organizations to sex traffick. Postulate: Sex traffickers are using US funding to HIV/AIDS health organizations to sex traffick. Question: Which of these HIV/AIDS health organizations are a front or being used to sex traffick? Open Society International sure did fight quite hard…

83 Tons Of Fake Gold Bars: Gold Market Rocked By Massive China Counterfeiting Scandal nationandstate.com/2020/06/29/83-tons-of-fake-gold-bars-gold-market-rocked-by-massive-china-counterfeiting-scandal/ Mon, 06/29/2020 – 12:15 Over the years, we have periodically reported of the occasional gold bar discovered as counterfeit in Manhattan’s Diamond District which instead of containing the yellow precious metal would be filled with gold-plated tungsten or in some cases copper. The news would spark a brief wave of outrage, prompting physical gold holders to run ultrasound spot checks of their inventory, at which point interest would wane and why not: buyer, after all, beware in gold as in every other market, and if someone is spending thousands to buy fake gold, well that’s Darwinism in action. Yet one market which seemed stubbornly immune to any counterfeiting was that of physical gold in China, which was odd considering that over the past decade China had emerged as the world’s biggest counterfeiter of various, mostly industrial metals used to secure bank loans, better known as “ghost collateral“, and which adding insult to injury, would frequently be rehypothecated meaning often several banks would have claims to the same (fake) asset. All that is about to change with the discovery of what may be one of the biggest gold counterfeiting scandal in recent history. And yes, not only does it involve China, but it emerges from a city that has become synonymous for all that is scandalous about China: Wuhan itself. With that preamble in mind, we introduce readers to Wuhan Kingold Jewelry Inc., a company which as the name implies was founded and operates out of Wuhan, and which describes itself on its website as “A Company with a Golden future.” In retrospect, it probably meant “copper” future, because as a remarkable expose by Caixin has found, more than a dozen Chinese financial institutions, mainly trust companies (i.e., shadow banks) loaned 20 billion yuan ($2.8 billion) over the past five years to Wuhan Kingold Jewelry with pure gold as collateral and insurance policies to cover any losses. There was just one problem: the “gold” turned out to be gold-plated copper.
Moar. ChYnee gold fuckery… Via Grant’s “ Pledge pin Caixin reports today that 83 tons of gold bars used as loan collateral by Nasdaq-listed Wuhan Kingold Jewelry, Inc. (ticker: KGJI) “turned out to be nothing but gilded copper.” That’s bad news for upwards of a dozen Chinese financial institutions, which issued more than RMB 20 billion ($2.8 billion) in loans backed by the fool’s gold to the company over the last five years. Asked by Caixin if the pledged gold was fake, Kingold chairman Jia Zhihong replied: “How could it be fake if insurance companies agreed to cover it?” Disbelief is understandable, considering the size of the potential fraud. That 83 ton cache would be equivalent to 22% of the Middle Kingdom’s annual output and nearly 5% of its gold reserve as of last year. ” —===— Anons paying attention? Seen the Wirecard scam? Again, from Grant’s: “… The Wall Street Journal reports that higher-ups at Credit Suisse are examining a handful of structured investment vehicles with exposure to Wirecard A.G, which has filed for bankruptcy following revelations of an accounting scandal including fictitious cash balances. Of particular focus: The multiple investment roles that SoftBank Group Corp. played in transacting the complex securities, and associated potential conflicts of interest. It wasn’t supposed to be this way,…” It’s big.
…and then, there's the Fed being INVOLVED in the creation of fake gold! Fake Gold Bars in Fort Knox viewzone2.com/fakegold.html The Federal Reserve knows but is apparently part of the scheme Earlier this year GATA filed a second Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Federal Reserve System for documents from 1990 to date having to do with gold swaps, gold swapped, or proposed gold swaps. On Aug. 5, The Federal Reserve responded to this FOIA request by adding two more documents to those disclosed to GATA in April 2008 from the earlier FOIA request. These documents totaled 173 pages, many parts of which were redacted (blacked out). The Fed's response also noted that there were 137 pages of documents not disclosed that were alleged to be exempt from disclosure. GATA appealed this determination on Aug. 20. The appeal asked for more information to substantiate the legitimacy of the claimed exemptions from disclosure and an explanation on why some documents, such as one posted on the Federal Reserve Web site that discusses gold swaps, were not included in the Aug. 5 document release. In a Sept. 17, 2009, letter on Federal Reserve System letterhead, Federal Reserve governor Kevin M. Warsh completely denied GATA's appeal. The entire text of this letter can be examined at www.gata.org/files/GATAFedResponse-09-17-2009.pdf. The first paragraph on the third page is the most revealing. "In connection with your appeal, I have confirmed that the information withheld under exemption 4 consists of confidential commercial or financial information relating to the operations of the Federal Reserve Banks that was obtained within the meaning of exemption 4. This includes information relating to swap arrangements with foreign banks on behalf of the Federal Reserve System and is not the type of information that is customarily disclosed to the public. This information was properly withheld from you." The above statement is an admission that the Federal Reserve has been involved with the fake gold bar swaps and that it refuses to disclose any information about its activities!
Wont stop the ANTIFA crowd from burning down McDonalds. They have no idea that the BLM "movement" is really a bunch of white revolutionaries living out their fantasies.
Venezuela's Maduro Orders EU Envoy to Leave Within 72 Hours Over Newly Imposed Sanctions Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has ordered EU envoy Isabel Brilhante Pedrosato to leave within 72 hours after the EU sanctioned a group of Venezuelan officials. "I have decided to give the European Union ambassador 72 hours to leave the country," Maduro said in a televised address, also noting that Pedrosato will be allowed to use a plane to leave the country. "Enough of European colonialism against Venezuela," Maduro added. Maduro's order comes hours after the Council of the European Union on Monday sanctioned 11 additional Venezuelan officials, including parliamentarians, a magistrate and a senior military chief, for acting against the National Assembly, which is dominated by the opposition, Reuters reported. The individuals sanctioned are recognized by the Maduro government but not by the members of the Assembly. The sanctions include a travel ban and an asset freeze. So far, 36 Venezuelan officials linked to the Maduro government face sanctions. According to the Council, the 11 newly-sanctioned individuals “are particularly responsible for acting against the democratic functioning of the National Assembly, including stripping the parliamentary immunity of several of its members," Reuters reported. The Council also accused the individuals of "creating obstacles to a political and democratic solution to the crisis in Venezuela." The United States itself has imposed numerous rounds of sanctions against Venezuela in response to the political developments in the country. On January 23, 2019, opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself Venezuela's interim president, denouncing Maduro's government as undemocratic and calling for Maduro's ouster. Since then, several failed attempts have been made to remove Maduro from power. Last year, the US also imposed sanctions on Venezuela's state-owned oil and natural gas company PDVSA. Recently, the Trump administration sanctioned three Mexico-based individuals for selling crude oil from Venezuela. “The illegitimate Maduro regime created a secret network to evade sanctions, which Treasury has now exposed,” US Deputy Secretary Justin G. Muzinich said in a statement at the time. “The United States will continue to relentlessly pursue sanctions evaders, who plunder Venezuela’s resources for personal gain at the expense of the Venezuelan people.” Last Wednesday, Washington also imposed sanctions on the captains of five Iranian tankers over oil deliveries to Venezuela. “Today, the United States is sanctioning five Iranian ship captains who delivered around 1.5 million barrels of Iranian gasoline to Venezuela in support of the illegitimate Maduro regime," US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. Maduro has repeatedly stated that the US is using sanctions to choke out his government and gain access to the country's oil reserves, which are the largest in the world. “Let’s not allow a Vietnam in Latin America,” Mr. Maduro said last year, warning against the dangers of US intervention.“If the United States intends to intervene here, they will have a Vietnam worse than what they can imagine. Let’s not allow violence.” sputniknews.com/latam/202006291079752376-venezuelas-maduro-orders-eu-envoy-to-leave-within-72-hours-over-newly-imposed-sanctions/
June 7, 2020 Holy Trinity Sunday Mr. President, In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness. These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand, there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation. We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches. Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May 8.In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the COVID emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.
For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons. For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those who want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches. The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception. Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God. United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will. + Carlo Maria Viganò Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana Former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America s3.amazonaws.com/lifesite/Open_Letter_President_Donald_Trump.pdf www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8408463/Catholic-archbishop-tells-Trump-protests-virus-deep-state-plot.html Donald Trump tweets letter from Catholic archbishop calling the coronavirus pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests 'Masonic' and 'deep state' plots to hurt his re-election President Trump tweeted a letter written to him from Carlo Maria Viganò, a Catholic archbishop Viganò suggested the coronavirus pandemic and the George Floyd protests are part of a 'deep state' plot to hurt the president's re-election He said he knew Trump was on right side because he participated in the anti-abortion 'March for Life'
Ocean Voyages Institute Removed 103 Tons Of Plastic From The Great Pacific Garbage Patch Setting Record The Ocean Voyages Institute returned to Honolulu last week after spending 48-days out at the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where they collected a mind-blowing 103 tons of marine debris. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch comprises of two enormous masses of ever-increasing piles of plastic and other trash. The Eastern Garbage Patch is situated between Hawaii and California, while the Western Garbage Patch extends in an easterly direction towards Japan from the Hawaiian Islands. The oceanic litter patch is up to 1.6 million square kilometres in size, according to the Ocean Cleanup institution, who have also calculated that the weight of all the trash in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (also known as The Gyre) to be at around 80,000 tons. And so while The Ocean Voyages Institute should rightly be praised for their remarkable work, it is, unfortunately, literally just a drop in the ocean. The California-based nonprofit charted a Hawaiian sailing cargo ship called Kwai and departed shore in early May. They returned to land on June 23. GPS-enabled satellite beacons, drones and other technology were used in the operation. As you can see from the photos and from their YouTube video, it was a mammoth undertaking hauling in all the plastic, fishing nets and other assorted trash.
“I am so proud of our hard working crew,” said founder and executive director Mary Crowley in a statement. “We exceeded our goal of capturing 100 tons of toxic consumer plastics and derelict ‘ghost’ nets. And in these challenging times, we are continuing to help restore the health of our ocean, which influences our own health and the health of the planet.” In 2019, the Ocean Voyages Institute engaged in a similar, but slightly smaller project, collecting 42 tons of debris after spending 25 days out at sea. “We feel that our cleanup work in the Gyre really helps address some of this debris before it arrives in the islands,” she said. “The oceans can’t wait for these nets and debris to break down into microplastics which impair the ocean’s ability to store carbon and toxify the fragile ocean food web,” Crowley added. Much of the ropes, fishing nets and consumer plastics will be recycled into fuel and repurposed into building insulation. Plans are underway for more expeditions this year and in years ahead. www.naturalblaze.com/2020/06/ocean-voyages-institute-removed-103-tons-of-plastic-from-the-great-pacific-garbage-patch-setting-record.html
The only thing that stopped the crowd was my rifle' | Interview with man who pulled out gun amid protest Mark McCloskey gave his first on-camera interview to 5 On Your Side anchor Anne Allred Author: Anne Allred Published: 1:17 PM CDT June 29, 2020 Updated: 3:56 PM CDT June 29, 2020 ST. LOUIS — It’s an encounter that’s gained national attention and it happened in St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood. Mark and Patricia McCloskey live in a neighborhood with million-dollar homes. The entire neighborhood is privately owned and managed, which means the entire street is considered private property. The couple has been seen across social media in what are now viral photos – which show them pointing guns at protesters. Anne Allred: Tell me what happened last night. Mark McCloskey: We came back to the house. I don't know what time it is, I've been up ever since. I'm a little, I'm a little blurry, but we were preparing dinner. We went out to the east patio, open porch that faces Kingshighway on one side and Portland Place Drive on the south, and we're sitting down for dinner. We heard all this stuff going on down on Maryland Plaza. And then the mob started to move up Kingshighway, but it got parallel with the Kingshighway gate on Portland Place. Somebody forced the gate, and I stood up and announced that this is private property. Go back. I can't remember in detail anymore. I went inside, I got a rifle. And when they … because as soon as I said this is private property, those words enraged the crowd. Horde, absolute horde came through the now smashed down gates coming right at the house. My house, my east patio was 40 feet from Portland Place Drive. And these people were right up in my face, scared to death. And then, I stood out there. The only thing we said is this is private property. Go back. Private property. Leave now. At that point, everybody got enraged. There were people wearing body armor. One person pulled out some loaded pistol magazine and clicked them together and said that you were next. We were threatened with our lives, threatened with a house being burned down, my office building being burned down, even our dog's life being threatened. It was, it was about as bad as it can get. I mean, those you know, I really thought it was Storming the Bastille that we would be dead and the house would be burned and there was nothing we could do about it. It was a huge and frightening crowd. And they were they broken the gate were coming at us. Allred: There have been some reports on Twitter and people who say they were there. It says they are saying the gate was already broken. McCloskey: Yes. That is nonsense. Absolute nonsense. The gate was up, broken. The gate was broken physically in half. Our trustees on Portland Place came out later in the night and chained it all up with an automotive tow chain it looks like. But no, you can talk to the trustees on Portland Place. The gate was not broken in half and laying on the ground one second before they came in the storm. Allred: Were the protesters on your private property at any point? McCloskey: Everything inside the Portland Place gate is private property. There is nothing public in Portland Place. Being inside that gate is like being in my living room. There is no public anything in Portland Place. It is all private property. And you've got to appreciate that if there are two or three hundred people, I don't know how many there were. We were told that 500 people showed up at the Lyda Krewson house, which is not on our street, as you know. But how many of them came through Portland Place? I don't know. But it was a big crowd and they were aggressive, wearing body armor and screaming at us and threatening to harm us. And how they were going to be living in our house after they kill us. www.ksdk.com/article/news/local/interview-man-with-rifle-during-st-louis-protest/63-eeb61c07-4adc-4df0-a7d0-000d40a89e78
STUNNING VIDEO — Catholics attacked by Black Lives Matter Mob at prayer event at Statue of St. Louis…
(anons- hittin close to home, my brother in law, mother, sister, nieces do this type of prayer vigils) Yesterday, while praying for peace and unity in our city and the protection of the Saint Louis statue, Black Lives Matter protesters started to harass, berate, and assault the Catholics that were peacefully praying. We did nothing in retaliation. We allowed them to spit on us, call us names, put their fingers in our faces, push us, and antagonize, but we did not retaliate. We continued to peacefully pray. One male then came over and said he would attack myself, one other Catholic man, and a Catholic woman that was there if we did not leave. We continued to pray. At that moment someone in the crowd poured an unidentified liquid on the older man pictured below in the comments protecting his head, and was then attacked by a violent individual, also pictured below with his arm pulled back about to attack the elderly man. We got the elderly man out of there safely, and I was about to leave to retrieve my lunch as a friend of mine had just come over to tell me my food had arrived, when the mob approached him. They asked if he was with me, and when he said yes they began to berate him. They took his walking stick from him and when he didn’t react they knocked his hat off of his head, called him a skin head, and attacked him. At this point I intervened to pull the attacker off of my friend, and I was attacked by the mob and the attacker. I have a video attached below of the assault. I will be pressing charges against the attackers. If you can identify anyone in these videos or pictures, please let me know. This can not stand. The police were called 6 times by others on the sidelines and never showed up. The righteous must defend themselves, as the it appears the government no longer is. I hope Donald J. Trump, Mike Parson, Senator Josh Hawley, Senator Roy Blunt, Sam Page, Mayor Lyda Krewson, and other public officials address this, as if not corrected things will only get worse.
3 Shot, 1 Killed at Amazon Warehouse in Jacksonville: FLORIDA — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred at an Amazon facility Monday. Deputies say three people were shot, one fatally outside the business—located at 12900 Pecan Park Road. At least two others suffered graze wounds. Assistant Chief Brian Kee said two men armed with handguns hopped out of a silver car around 2 p.m. local time and started shooting at a line of people who were there to apply for a job. “This is not random. It was specifically targeting this victim,” Kee told reporters. “We are not inside the facility at all.” “We’re trying to determine what the motive was why they were after this victim. We have about 10 eyewitnesses that were both inside and outside of the facility,” said Kee. “This does not appear to be a workplace violent incident that you would normally associate with workplace violence or mass shootings.”
Andy Ngo EVISCERATES Nadler's Claim That Antifa's Role in Riots Is 'Imaginary' On Monday, Andy Ngo, editor-at-large at The Post Millennial, testified before the House Oversight Committee, powerfully rebutting Rep. Jerry Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) insistence that when it comes to the protests and riots spreading across America after the horrific police killing of George Floyd, the presence of antifa instigators is “imaginary.” Ngo, who has suffered serious injury from antifa attacks, is a living rebuke to such claims. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) noted that Ngo’s name did not appear on the Democrats’ web page for the hearing. “Mr. Ngo, why do Democrats try to ignore you?” Jordan asked. “I don’t know if it’s intentional,” Ngo responded. “I’ve written for very major publications about this very violent threat.” He noted that Portland has experienced “thirty-straight days of violent rioting downtown” following protests over the death of George Floyd. Jordan asked Ngo to respond to the claim that antifa is “imaginary.” “Yes, it’s real,” the journalist responded. “When I heard that, I was quite surprised.” He held up police affidavits in criminal cases against self-described members of antifa. He first presented a record on Amelia Joan Shamrowicz, who allegedly committed arson, criminal mischief (destroying or damaging $1,000 or more in property), and rioting. When police interviewed Shamrowicz’s roommates, they “reported that SHAMROWICZ stated they started the fire using a Molotov cocktail, and she is part of Antifa. SHAMROWICZ was reported to be extremely excited about being labeled a terrorist and was very animated about her hopes that police officers would be killed and injured by the riots. She also stated that she would be going out on another mission and the goal would be to set another fire.” He also held up another affidavit from Travis County, Texas, in which three known members of a communist/socialist antifa group were charged with looting, burglary, and property damage at a Target in Austin. SPLC Slams Trump’s Terror Designation of Antifa as ‘Dangerous and Unjust’ as America Burns Ngo condemned the “information warfare” on this issue, insisting that violence comes from extremists on both the left and the right. “Ever since Donald Trump’s surprise election win in November 2016, there’s been consistent routine violent rioting in Portland,” the journalist testified, condemning both antifa and right-wing extremists. Last June, a violent antifa assault landed Ngo in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage. He condemned police for failing to protect him from threats and violence. On Monday, Jordan asked the journalist if Portland’s mayor had ordered police not to break up violent riots. “I don’t have the evidence of that, but our mayor” has clearly expressed his “dislike of the police,” Ngo responded. He described “an environment were police are passive and they’re tolerating mob violence.” “As police are retreating, I fear that America is experiencing what Portland has,” the journalist explained. Jordan noted that members of Minneapolis’s City Council have voted to disband the police department, yet they receive $4,500 per day for private security. “Elected officials need to be protected from terrorists and those who seek to harm them. And you know who else needs to be protected? Regular citizens,” Ngo quipped in response. Andy Ngo also explained how antifa instigators operate, using peaceful protesters as human shields.

60 MINUTES, Sunday Nov 4, 1979 Remember the swine flu scare of 1976? That was the year the U.S. government told us all that swine flu could turn out to be a killer that could spread across the nation, and Washington decided that every man, woman and child in the nation should get a shot to prevent a nation-wide outbreak, a pandemic. WALLACE: Dr David Sencer, then head of theCDC - the Center of Disease Control in Atlanta - is now in private industry.He devised the swine flu program and he pushed it. WALLACE: Now, nearly everyone was to receive a shot in a public health facility where a doctor might not be present, therefore it was up to the CDC to come up with some kind of official consent form giving the public all the information it needed about the swine flu shot. This form stated that the swine flu vaccine had been tested.What it didn't say was that after those tests were completed,the scientists developed another vaccine and that it was the one given to most of the 46 million who took the shot. That vaccine was called "X-53a". Was X-53a ever field tested? WALLACE: So you told your superiors - the men in charge of the swine flu immunization program - about the possibility of neurological disorders? DR RATTWICK: Absolutely WALLACE: As part of informing Americans about the swine flu threat, Dr Sencer's CDC also helped create the advertising to get the public to take the shot. Let me read to your from one of your own agency's memos planning the campaign to urge Americans to take the shot. "The swine flu vaccine has been taken by many important persons," he wrote. "Example: President Ford, Henry Kissinger, Elton John, Muhammad Ah, Mary Tyler Moore, Rudolf Nureyev, Walter Cronkite, Ralph Nader, Edward Kennedy" -etcetera, etcetera, True? this is a very small cut and paste you can read the full 60 minute transcript below!

By Michael Flynn Published June 29, 2020 at 11:01am I was once told if we’re not careful, 2 percent of the passionate will control 98 percent of the indifferent 100 percent of the time. The more I’ve thought about this phrase, the more I believe it. There is now a small group of passionate people working hard to destroy our American way of life. Treason and treachery are rampant and our rule of law and those law enforcement professionals who uphold our laws are under the gun more than at any time in our nation’s history. These passionate 2 percent appear to be winning. Despite there being countless good people trying to come to grips with everything else on their plates, our silent majority (the indifferent) can no longer be silent. If the United States wants to survive the onslaught of socialism, if we are to continue to enjoy self-government and the liberty of our hard-fought freedoms, we have to understand there are two opposing forces: One is the “children of light” and the other is the “children of darkness.” As I recently wrote, the art and exercise of self-governance require active participation by every American. I wasn’t kidding! And voting is only part of that active participation. Time and again, the silent majority have been overwhelmed by the “audacity and resolve” of small, well-organized, passionate groups. It’s now time for us, the silent majority (the indifferent), to demonstrate both. The trials of our current times, like warfare, are immense and consequences severe and these seem inconquerable. As a policewoman from Virginia told me, “People don’t feel safe in their homes and our police force is so demoralized we cannot function as we should. In my 23 years with my department, I have never seen morale so low.” Another woman from Mississippi told me that we need our leaders to “drop a forceful hammer. People are losing patience. It simply must be stopped! Laws MUST be enforced … no one is above the law.” Don’t fret. Through smart, positive actions of resolute citizen-patriots, we can prevail. Always keep in mind that our enemy (these dark forces) invariably have difficulties of which we are ignorant. For most Americans, these forces appear to be strong. I sense they are desperate. I also sense that only a slight push on our part is all that is required to defeat these forces. How should that push come? Prayers help and prayers matter, but action is also a remedy. Our law enforcement professionals, from the dispatcher to the detective and from the cop to the commissioner, are a line of defense against the corrupt and the criminal. It is how we remain (for now) in a state of relatively peaceful existence. We must support them with all our being. They are not the enemy; they bring light to the darkness of night through their bravery and determination to do their jobs without fanfare and with tremendous sacrifice. The silent majority (the indifferent) tend to go the way of those leading them. We are not map- or mind-readers; we are humans fraught with all the hopes and fears that flesh is heir to. We must not become lost in this battle. We must resoundingly follow our God-given common sense. Seek the truth, fight for it in everything that is displayed before you. Don’t trust the fake news or false prophets; trust your instincts and your common sense. Those with a conscience know the difference between right and wrong, and those with courage will always choose the harder right over the easier wrong. I believe the attacks being presented to us today are part of a well-orchestrated and well-funded effort that uses racism as its sword to aggravate our battlefield dispositions. This weapon is used to leverage and legitimize violence and crime, not to seek or serve the truth. The dark forces’ weapons formed against us serve one purpose: to promote radical social change through power and control. Socialism and the creation of a socialist society are their ultimate goals. They are also intent on driving God out of our families, our schools and our courts. They are even seeking the very removal of God from our churches, essentially hoping to remove God from our everyday lives. Remember, we will only remain united as “one nation under God.” And yes, there is a “resistance movement” by the forces of darkness. However, we must also resist these onslaughts and instead take an optimistic view of our situation. Like war, optimism can be pervasive and helps to subdue any rising sense of fear. We must, however, be deliberate about our optimism. Otherwise, we may get lost in discouragement and despair of any failings we encounter. We must be tenacious in the ultimate end we wish to gain. That end is to remain an unwavering constitutional republic based on a set of Judeo-Christian values and principles. We must not fear these and instead embrace each. Our path requires course corrections. To move our experiment in democracy forward, we should fight and reject the tired and failed political paths and instead pursue a more correct path that shines a bright light on liberty, a path with greater and greater control of our livelihoods instead of being controlled by fewer and fewer of the too-long-in-power politicians. They have discarded us like old trash. Our will, our individual liberties and freedoms, remain powerful forces and must be understood and applied smartly. We must not be overly stubborn. Following the Constitution as our guide and adapting to change as we have throughout history, we learn more about what freedoms humans desire. At times, however, we have to fall back on what got us here. We cannot afford to lose our God-given human rights and the strong inner desire for freedom to choose and to breathe the fresh air of liberty. We must stand up and speak out to challenge our so-called “leaders” of government. We put them in charge; we can remove them as well. It is through our rights and privileges as American citizens that we challenge the political class and leverage our election process so “we the people” can decide who will govern. We must not allow a small percentage of the powerful to overtake our position on America’s battlefield. We, as free-thinking and acting individuals, must control how we will live and not allow a few passionate others to change our way of life. To the silent and currently indifferent majority: Wake up. America is at risk of being lost in the dustbin of history to socialism. The very heart and soul of America is at stake. In war, as in life, most failure comes from inaction. We face a pivotal moment that can change the course of history of our nation. We the people must challenge every politician at every level. We also must stand and support our law enforcement professionals: They are the pointy end of the spear defending us against anarchy. Now is the time to act.
Deep State, Elites and Democrats are Pushing a ‘Color Revolution’ on the American People But the Target is American Freedom Color Revolution is the term used to describe a series of remarkably effective CIA-led regime change operations using techniques developed by the RAND Corporation, “democracy” NGOs and other groups since the 1980’s. They were used in crude form to bring down the Polish communist regime in the late 1980s. From there the techniques were refined and used, along with heavy bribes, to topple the Gorbachev regime in the Soviet Union. For anyone who has studied those models closely, it is clear that the protests against police violence led by amorphous organizations with names like Black Lives Matter or Antifa are more than purely spontaneous moral outrage. Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are being used as a battering ram to not only topple a US President, but in the process, the very structures of the US Constitutional order.

Imagine that! Oral vaccines that can be made from a plant. No need for risky animal tissues or needles either Algae-based oral recombinant vaccines media.8kun.top/file_store/df1c025475ed934051fc04fab63b17e0101b68f4adda04e9789fc806ffed255f.png www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3925837/ Abstract Recombinant subunit vaccines are some of the safest and most effective vaccines available, but their high cost and the requirement of advanced medical infrastructure for administration make them impractical for many developing world diseases. Plant-based vaccines have shifted that paradigm by paving the way for recombinant vaccine production at agricultural scale using an edible host. However, enthusiasm for “molecular pharming” in food crops has waned in the last decade due to difficulty in developing transgenic crop plants and concerns of contaminating the food supply. Microalgae could be poised to become the next candidate in recombinant subunit vaccine production, as they present several advantages over terrestrial crop plant-based platforms including scalable and contained growth, rapid transformation, easily obtained stable cell lines, and consistent transgene expression levels. Algae have been shown to accumulate and properly fold several vaccine antigens, and efforts are underway to create recombinant algal fusion proteins that can enhance antigenicity for effective orally delivered vaccines. These approaches have the potential to revolutionize the way subunit vaccines are made and delivered – from costly parenteral administration of purified protein, to an inexpensive oral algae tablet with effective mucosal and systemic immune reactivity.

Be ready just in case Just got this E-mail from a friend: XXXXXXX I am trying to find out where a friend of mine got this from. Nothing in truthorfiction.com and I can’t find anything on it on the internet. Have you heard anything about it? I was going to call but thought you might in bed. Love you both, XXXXXXX I CERTAINLY HOPE THIS ISN'T TRUE , BUT BE AWARE OF WHAT'S GOING ON AROUND YOU …………………………….. I DONT KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE BUT PAY CLOSE ATTENTION…THIS IS ANTIFA'S PLAN…SPREAD THIS TO EVERYONE…IM ALSO GETTING IN TOUCH WITH THE FBI…THOSE PEOPLE NEED TO BE WARNED!!!!! THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY THE GETTYSBURG POLICE DEPT. (717) 334-1168 If you fail to copy or share this you are not a patriot you are part of the problem I received this in a email - FYI Tuesday, June 23, 2020 11:59 AM Subject: PLEASE be aware this July 4……. 30,000 members per state…many trained by radical Islam they plan on killing as many Trump supporters and whites as possible!! ANTIFA To Desecrate Gettysburg National Cemetery on July 4 - Then MURDER & BURN White Suburbs under cover of "Fireworks" ANTIFA is planning to desecrate the Gettysburg National Cemetery by burning flags there on July 4; just before they begin MURDERING White people and BURNING DOWN Suburbs the same day. It will start at the desecration of Union Solder graves at Gettysburg, Pa. According to the Controlled Unclassified Law Enforcement Bulletin issued as "Law Enforcement Sensitive - For Official Use Only" to Police and Fire Departments about ANTIFA already using fireworks to acclimate suburbia with sounds of explosions, so they can use those to cover for gun fire when they attack white, suburban, neighborhoods the same day. According to Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in a Bulletin issued to Police and Fire Departments, ANTIFA has been taking deliveries of very large shipments of professional-grade fireworks. They have been sending teams out to various areas throughout America to detonate those fireworks for the past two weeks, to achieve Three (3) specific objectives: 1) The first objective is to test the response of local law enforcement. If fireworks are going off around the clock and residents are filing complaints, will police respond? How long does it take them to respond? How many officers? Do they even respond at all? This data is being recorded by these groups, and will prove to be very valuable intel for what is to come. This is a very accurate barometer to test the waters. 2) The second objective is to get local residents (ie: white people in nearby neighborhoods) acclimated to the frequent sounds of explosions that often sound like gunfire. 3) The final objective: Knowing response times and manpower of police, and having acclimated the local population into explosion sounds that mimic gunfire, to then commit arson attacks with professional fireworks to set so many fires, local Emergency Services are immediately overwhelmed, and enter houses to actually fire guns and kill as many as possible in white suburbs. Unless you have been living on different planet, you should be fully aware that America is currently under attack. While mass-media has portrayed this situation as "peaceful protests" those engaged have been rioting, smashing private property and businesses, looting on a scale which is un-paralleled, and beating, stabbing, shooting innocent people in the areas where these activities are taking place.You have probably also read or overheard many reports of illegal fireworks and explosions that are currently taking place throughout many different US cities. If you do a Google search for "fireworks complaints" you will find countless articles posted just in the last week or so. Continued . . . Most of these news reports are local, since local news is far more likely to have boots on the ground and residents reporting an accurate assessment as to what is actually going on. However, national media outlets are largely attempting to paint this "uptick" in fireworks activity as a sign of people being overly "celebratory" in preparation for the 4th of July. Here are the facts, so please pay close attention. As a result of major 4th of July events being shut down and cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, an overwhelming surplus of fireworks have flooded the market. Several activist groups including ANTIFA, BLM and Weather-Undergound are exploiting this surplus and are bulk purchasing from suppliers in extremely high volumes. In many cases, these are highly dangerous, professional-grade fireworks. The number of people within these groups must not be underestimated. They operate like terrorists and use clandestine communication strategies. There are many members of these in groups in most major cities, and have been for several years. Yes, these are essentially domestic terror cells, and as you've likely guessed, this is indeed the year in which they have been instructed to carry out their master's dystopian agenda. What they are doing is delivering fireworks in bulk, via moving trucks and vans. You may have remembered the pallets of bricks that were being dropped off at various locations so Rioters could use those bricks to destroy property? This is a similar strategy. Once these fireworks are delivered, they are then distributing them to any black people who wish to set them off for their own entertainment, previously under the guise of the non-existent "Juneteenth" holiday, and to make sure these fireworks were set off almost continually all day and night in various cities. This may not be a shock, as you're likely aware that white, Marxist radicals are the ones who have been frequently arrested for burning buildings cars during these riots. Again, these are activists/terrorists who have covertly infiltrated these predominantly black areas. So, this answers the question of "who" is responsible for the huge number of fireworks complaints that have been circulating for a week or more. You may remember a blip on Drudge and various other outlets not long ago about the riots reaching white neighborhoods, and this is indeed the objective. The foundations of this great nation are in the process of being literally erased. This should be clear by now. Pray for America.
Mind-Blowing Story of Russian Cosmonauts Who Saw Angels in Space www.techeblog.com/mind-blowing-story-of-russian-cosmonauts-who-saw-angels-in-space/ In July 1984, Russian cosmonauts aboard the Sovie space station Salyut 7 were on day 155 of their mission. This was also the day that the group reported strange lights and beings. According to commander Oleg Atkov and cosmonauts Vladmir Solovyov and Leonid Kizim, the space station was completely bathed in a mesmerizing orange light. It appeared to enter from outside the space station and bled through an absolutely opaque wall. For a short period of time, the orange light was so bright that it blinded the crew. When their vision returned, each one looked out the portholes for the source of the light, looking specifically for a possible explosion. They knew the Salyut 7 had suffered previous fires, but what the crew saw was more incomprehensible than the orange light. All of the cosmonauts reported seeing the faces of seven angels who were hovering just outside the space station. They told ground control they were humanoid in appearance (faces and bodies looked human), but they had wings and halos. These beings kept pace with the space station for 10-minutes before vanishing.
L.A. City Council Passes Motion to Replace Police with ‘Crisis Response’ for ‘Non-violent’ Calls The Los Angeles City Council passed a motion Tuesday to replace Los Angeles Police Department officers with unarmed “crisis response” personnel to be assigned to “non-violent calls for service” such as “neighbor disputes.” The motion, introduced by Councilmember Herb Wesson and five colleagues on the 15-member council, would: INSTRUCT the Chief Legislative Analyst (CLA) and the City Administrative Officer (CAO), with assistance from the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Housing Services Authority and in cooperation with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health and other relevant government service providers, to develop an unarmed model of crisis response that would divert non-violent calls for service (mental health crisis, substance abuse, neighbor disputes etc.) away from LAPD to the appropriate non-law enforcement agencies. INSTRUCT the CLA to analyze and report back on programs utilized both domestically and internationally such as CAHOOTS in Eugene, Oregon as well other models of crisis intervention. An explanatory paragraph says, in part: According to the Motion, budget cuts in social services have resulted in law enforcement taking on a greater role in dealing with homelessness, mental health and even COVID-19 related responses. Los Angeles has gone from asking the police to be part of the solution, to being the only solution for problems they should not be called on to solve in the first place. As Los Angeles Country engages in a national conversation on the re-imaging of public safety, the City of Los Angeles should look to be a leader and act boldly to structurally change how it delivers services to its residents, particularly those who have been historically marginalized and neglected. In order to properly service the most vulnerable, the City of Los Angeles should look to advance non-law enforcement solutions in circumstances that are non-criminal. Local Fox affiliate KTTV noted that Wesson would be “working on the project with members of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles.” Mayor Eric Garcetti announced earlier this month that the city would be cutting up to $150 million from the LAPD budget — more than 10% of the total — for redistribution in “communities of color.” Breitbart News reported Monday that morale in the LAPD is at a “record low.” www.breitbart.com/crime/2020/06/30/l-a-city-council-passes-motion-to-replace-police-with-crisis-response-for-non-violent-calls/
Biden Campaign Asks Facebook To Censor President Trump’s Posts The Biden campaign doesn’t believe Facebook is doing enough to censor President Trump. In a letter to Facebook’s vice president for global affairs and communications Nick Clegg on Monday, Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon criticized the tech giant for “haggling” with the White House and requesting “edits and deletions” of Trump’s posts about the George Floyd protests, rather than removing them entirely. She specifically asked Facebook to remove posts from President Trump that suggest a connection between mail-in ballots and voter fraud. Dillon insisted that such posts were unfounded and constituted voter suppression. Meanwhile, in a special election in New Jersey last month nearly a fifth of ballots collected were discovered to be fraudulent. On Friday, Facebook announced a policy to censor posts that incite violence or suppress voters. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had previously spoken in favor of allowing controversial political speech on his platform, and had criticized Twitter for censoring the president. But after heavy backlash from advertisers, Zuckerberg now says the company will label posts that appear to be “hate speech” and will take down posts that amount to voter suppression or inciting violence going forward. This isn’t the first time the Biden campaign has tried to use social media platforms to go after the president. After months of pressuring Facebook privately, Biden encouraged his supporters to sign a petition asking Facebook to tighten its rules on disinformation earlier in June. In response, Facebook maintained that “the people’s elected representatives should set the rules, and we will follow them…we will protect political speech, even when we strongly disagree with it.” Now, Facebook has decided to make the rules after all. Whether the tech giant will cave entirely to the Biden campaign’s demands remains to be seen. thefederalist.com/2020/06/30/biden-campaign-asks-facebook-to-censor-president-trumps-posts/ Biden Letter context-cdn.washingtonpost.com/notes/prod/default/documents/7a031a48-b52c-4d6b-a245-aae99d526538/note/bd84a8b8-3808-455b-b5e3-12560a36699b.#page=1 Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Post
It’s okay to hate whites? New Reddit hate speech policy apparently embraces discrimination In its recent blitz on ‘hateful content’, Reddit has dropped any pretence of fairness. The site now condones hatred and calls to violence, as long as they’re directed at the right “majority.” Reddit is among the world’s most popular websites and home to more than a million communities, or ‘subreddits’. As of Monday, 2,000 of these have been banned for “promoting hate.” Among them are r/The_Donald, a popular community of Trump supporters, and r/ChapoTrapHouse, an offshoot of the leftist podcast by the same name. Along with the bans came an overhaul of the site’s content policy. “Everyone has a right to use Reddit free of harassment, bullying, and threats of violence,” the policy reads. “Communities and people that incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned.” New Reddit "hate speech" rules announced today explicitly allows for hate to be directed at "majority" groups perceived to be in positions of power.https://t.co/fNNxuL2Gkipic.twitter.com/LAcunGG14S — Colin Wright (@swipewright) June 29, 2020 But whose identities are the most vulnerable? Reddit’s policy dictates that minorities in terms of “actual and perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, immigration status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or disability” will all be considered vulnerable, as will “victims of a major violent event and their families.” This last section likely lays the foundations to boot future rabble rousers like Infowars’ Alex Jones, who was kicked from multiple platforms two years ago for maligning the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre. In all of these intersectional fault lines listed above, the majority will not be afforded the same protections. “The rule does not protect groups of people who are in the majority,” the policy explicitly states. “Majority” here presumably means ‘white’ and ‘male,’ two immutable characteristics blamed for all of America’s ills in recent weeks. Non-Hispanic white people make up 60 percent of the US population, so based on the scant guidelines provided by Reddit, hateful content directed at them will be deemed completely acceptable. However, less than half of Reddit’s users are American, and when the entire world is taken into account, its largest ethnic group is Han Chinese. Anti-Chinese racism should, therefore, be allowed, if Reddit considers this when it enforces its rules. Similarly, while women are a slight minority worldwide, they are a 50.8 percent majority in the US. Reddit should therefore apply a zero tolerance policy on sexism to its global users, but allow Americans to unload any amount of hatred and vitriol on the fairer sex. It’s tempting to imagine the content moderators at Reddit’s San Francisco headquarters tying themselves in knots as they attempt to enforce the new policies to the letter, thumbing through demographic spreadsheets as they try to define minority and majority, victim and aggressor. It’s also extremely unlikely that they’ll do this. After reading this, there's really no more succinct way to express this new policy than by stating that Reddit is now implicitly anti-white and anti-heterosexual: According to the final sentence in the rules, hate may be directed at whiteness and heterosexuality. t.co/3NU81qxGtC — A New Radical Centrism (@a_centrism) June 29, 2020 I’m sure Reddit’s new policy prohibiting “hate speech” will be enforced totally neutrally and apolitically, and the fact that it was instituted in the middle of a national nervous breakdown will have no bearing on the soundness of the policy — Michael Tracey (@mtracey) June 30, 2020 #Reddit literally just wrote anIt's OK to hate on White PeoplePolicy pic.twitter.com/olSVdMvcEb — Jim Hanson (@jimhansondc) June 29, 2020 www.rt.com/usa/493409-reddit-hate-speech-whites/
WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING Senate bill 4051 has been introduced by Senators Graham (R-SC), Cotton (R-AR), and Blackburn (R-TN). 4051 is called the Lawful Access to Encrypted Data Act of 2020 (LEAD Act). "The bill is an actual, overt, make-no-mistake, crystal-clear ban on providers from offering end-to-end encryption in online services, from offering encrypted devices that cannot be unlocked for law enforcement, and indeed from offering any encryption that does not build in a means of decrypting data for law enforcement. The new bill applies to operating systems and apps and messaging and chat and social media platforms and email and cloud storage and videoconferencing and smartphones and laptops and desktops and your Xbox, and probably voting machines and IoT devices – basically any electronic device with just 1 GB of storage capacity. It isn’t just aimed at Apple, Google, Facebook, Signal, and the like, though it certainly applies to them; it goes well beyond, to include everyone from Box and Dropbox, to the full range of Microsoft’s products, to OEM handset manufacturers. This bill is the encryption backdoor mandate we’ve been dreading was coming, but that nobody, during the past six years of the renewed Crypto Wars, had previously dared to introduce. Well, these three senators finally went there." cyberlaw.stanford.edu/blog/2020/06/there’s-now-even-worse-anti-encryption-bill-earn-it-doesn’t-make-earn-it-bill-ok
Gab CEO Warns VIsa Is Helping To Bring China's "Social Credit Score" To America A little over a week after getting blacklisted by Visa simply for being associated with Gab, a social media alternative that's committed to the principles of free speech, Andrew Torba, Gab's CEO, has just spoken out for the first time via a blog post detailing his experiences. His account is almost shocking in that, as Torba argues, it shows that US corporations like Visa have started to create their own version of China's "social credit score" metric in the US. If you're deemed "politically incorrect", you will be silenced, fired and harassed by major corporations, journalists and "activists" who claim to be committed to social justice and equality. As Torba explains, because he refuses to censor hate speech on his platform in keeping with his commitment to making Gab a censorship-free platform, Visa has targeted him, and accused him of "breaking the law" - even though "hate speech" is protected under the First Amendment. Visa has effectively cut Torba off from the dollar-based financial system. His easiest means of transacting digitally, at this point, probably involves crypto. This level of prosecution should make Christians and conservatives nervous, as they have seen these tactics from the left before. And the results last time around…well…they weren't pretty…no matter what American millennials might believe. * * * As many of you already know we learned last week that Visa blacklisted Gab and we are now unable to process credit and debit card transactions. We learned more information this week and I think it’s important that I share it as a warning for others. It’s not just Gab that is blacklisted. It’s also my family. In China there is something called the Social Credit System, which was developed by the Communist Chinese Party as a “national reputation system.” This system tracks the “trustworthiness” of individuals, businesses, and organizations. “Trustworthiness” here means total and complete submission to the Chinese Communist Party. If the Communist Party deems you to be untrustworthy, you are denied access to plane tickets, train tickets, opening and operating businesses, and more. As of June 2019, according to the National Development and Reform Commission of China, 26.82 million air tickets as well as 5.96 million high-speed rail tickets have been denied to people who were deemed “untrustworthy (失信)” (on a blacklist), and 4.37 million “untrustworthy” people have chosen to fulfill their duties required by the law. To most Americans this sounds horrifying, and it is. I now know from first-hand experience because this social credit system exists in the United States. While it may not be sanctioned by the United States government, it most certainly has been deployed by US corporations who today have in many ways more power, data, and control over our lives than our government does. Many of these corporations also happen to be endorsing and raising money for communist organizations, revolutionaries, and the domestic terrorists burning down our cities. We were told this week that not only is Gab blacklisted by Visa as a business, but my personal name, phone number, address, and more are all also blacklisted by Visa. If I wanted to leave Gab tomorrow (something that isn’t going to happen) and start a lemonade stand I wouldn’t be able to obtain merchant processing for it. Simply because my name is Andrew Torba. If my wife wants to start a business she won’t be able to obtain merchant processing because she lives at the same address as me and would be flagged by Visa. This is obviously very concerning. We have done nothing wrong. Gab is and always has been a legally operated business. We sell hats, shirts, and a software subscription service that unlocks new features on Gab. My personal credit score is in the 800’s. I pay my bills. I have a wife and daughter to provide for, yet we are all being punished and defamed because someone at Visa has it out for me. www.zerohedge.com/political/gab-ceo-warns-visa-helping-bring-chinas-social-credit-score-america

'Golden State Killer' suspect pleads guilty to 13 murders, admits dozens of rapes Nathan Frandino ReutersJune 29, 2020, 5:03 AM EDT SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - An elderly ex-policeman confessed on Monday to being the violent serial prowler known as the "Golden State Killer," pleading guilty to 13 murders and admitting to dozens of rapes and break-ins that terrorized California during the 1970s and '80s. Joseph James DeAngelo, 74, entered the pleas as part of a broader deal with prosecutors sparing him from a potential death sentence in return for his admission to all of the offenses he stood accused of - charged and uncharged - in 11 California counties. Under terms of the unusual plea agreement, approved by Superior Court Judge Michael Bowman at Monday's hearing, DeAngelo faces life in prison without the possibility of parole rather than a potential death sentence. Prosecutors said the deal ensured that aging survivors and victims' relatives lived to see the case resolved, sparing them further legal proceedings likely to have dragged on for 10 years. "The time for justice stands in front of us now," said Amy Holliday, deputy district attorney for Sacramento County. The hearing was held in a Sacramento university ballroom, rather than a courthouse, to allow for socially distanced seating amid the coronavirus pandemic. The defendant and his attorneys wore medical-style, clear plastic face shields One of many surviving victims who attended the hearing, Kris Pedretti, said she felt satisfied with the outcome of DeAngelo's plea, telling Reuters during a break, "I do think he is owning it." Pedretti, who was 15 when sexually assaulted, said she and other survivors "want people to know that there's hope and that we're not afraid to face him." DeAngelo's arrest in 2018 capped more than 40 years of investigation that authorities finally solved through DNA evidence and data from commercial genealogy websites. The breakthrough came about two months after the case gained renewed national attention in the bestselling book, "I'll Be Gone in the Dark." A TV documentary series spawned by the book premiered by coincidence on HBO on Sunday. Besides the 13 murders and kidnappings, prosecutors said DeAngelo was tied to nearly 50 rapes and more than 120 home invasions - mostly in and around Sacramento, the eastern San Francisco Bay area and Southern California. The crime spree ran from 1975 to 1986 and began while DeAngelo was still a police officer. He served on two small-town departments during the 1970s. The suspect, whom authorities also nicknamed the "East Area Rapist" and the "Original Night Stalker," was notorious for creeping into his victims' bedrooms at night, tying them up, raping them, and stealing their valuables. Formal sentencing was set to begin on Aug. 17. www.yahoo.com/news/golden-state-killer-suspect-expected-090302267.html
