United Nations forced to admit that vaccines from Bill Gates are spreading polio throughout Africa

A new report by the World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the United Nations (UN), confirms everything we have long been saying about the deadly nature of Bill Gates’ vaccination programs in the Third World.

Entitled, “Circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 – Sudan,” the report outlines how polio vaccines from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are spreading more polio throughout Africa. Not only that, but these “relief” jabs are killing young black lives in places like Chad and Sudan where outbreaks of the vaccine-induced disease are spreading like wildfire.

Amazingly, the WHO openly admits that the strain of poliovirus currently circulating, known as cVDPV2, is “vaccine-derived.” This clearly indicates that it is being spread by the very same vaccines that Bill Gates claims are helping to “save lives” and “eradicate polio.”

UN Forced To Admit Gates-Funded Vaccine Is Causing Polio Outbreak In Africa

Via 21stCenturyWire.com,

This really should be one of the biggest scandals in public health, but it’s given little attention – mainly because of the high-profile nature of the people and organisations involved.

The United Nations has been forced to admit that a major international vaccine initiative is actually causing the outbreak of the very disease it was supposed to wipe-out.

While international organisations like the World Health Organization (WHO) will regular boast about supposedly ‘eradicating polio’ with vaccines, the opposite seems to be the case. Their decades-long campaign to eradicate polio is now killing scores of innocent young people living in poor countries.

Now it seems that health officials are beginning to admit that their plan to stop ‘wild’ polio is backfiring, as scores children are being paralyzed a deadly strain of the pathogen derived from a live vaccine – causing a virulent of polio to spread.

This latest pharma-induced pandemic has broken out in the African countries of Chad and Sudan, and the culprit has been identified: a vaccine-derived polio virus type 2. Officials now fear this new dangerous strain could soon ‘jump continents,’ causing further deadly outbreaks around the world.

Shocking as it sounds, this Big Pharma debacle is not new. After spending some $16 billion over 30 years to eradicate polio, international health bodies have ‘accidentally’ reintroduced the disease to in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and also Iran, as the central Asia region was hit by a virulent strain of polio spawned by the corporate pharmaceutical vaccine distributed there. Also, in 2019, the government of Ethiopia ordered the destruction of 57,000 vials of type 2 oral polio vaccine (mOPV2) following a similar outbreak of vaccine-induced polio.

HOW US SPECIAL FORCES ARE COLONIZING AFRICA | GREATGAMEINDIA

SOURCE: GREAT GAME INDIA
There are more than 6,000 US Special Forces commandos actively operating in 22 African countries. None among the general public has ever known the purpose for the presence of massive US military in Africa, especially commandos. This has led many experts to question if the US Special Forces are indeed colonizing Africa.

How US Special Forces Are Colonizing Africa
A new report published in South African newspaper The Mail and Guardian brings up the issue of massive American military presence in Africa. Just last year, elite U.S. Special Operations forces were functional in 22 African countries. That translates to almost 14 percent of all American commandos deployed overseas.

Officially, the US isn’t planning a war with any African nation. Hence, when U.S. operatives die in Africa, particularly in Niger, Mali or Somalia, the public, and even the media respond by asking “why are American soldiers there in the first place?”

None among the general public has ever known the purpose for the presence of US military, especially commandos. Neither Washington not the African governments publicly acknowledged it. US. Africa Command (AFRICOM) claims that special forces go no further than “AAA” (advise, assist and accompany) missions.

In Darfur, civilians pay price in new wave of deadly violence

Ibrahim Arbab had no option but to flee.

Having heard of a mass killing in a nearby village, the 34-year-old and his family late last month sought shelter in el-Geneina, the capital of Sudan’s West Darfur state. Thousands of others did the same.

“The Janjaweed will definitely come after you,” Arbab said, referring to the feared militias who have long been accused of committing atrocities in Darfur, in the west of Sudan.

A new master’s house: The architect decolonising Nigerian design

In the Igbo town of Idumuje-Ugboko in southeast Nigeria, artist and architect Demas Nwoko reports to his home office Monday through Friday.

The room is cool, softly lit and furnished with his own hand-built wooden desks, tables and chairs. A selection of Nwoko’s terracotta sculptures is displayed on shelves. Throughout the day, the 84-year-old meets one-on-one with his two young interns, recent architecture school graduates who assist with the logistics of his latest building projects. His feedback and direction are those of an exacting perfectionist, but his serious tone is softened by an easy chuckle.

Waffling while Libya burns: Libya’s problem is a security problem that requires a military solution

“Libya’s problem is a security problem that requires a military solution. In the west of the country are the Turkish-sponsored Islamist cutthroats of the Muslim Brotherhood and their crime syndicate allies, now backed by nearly 20,000 Syrian mercenaries and other Turkish-trained jihadists. In the east is the elected parliament and its armed force, the LNA, which succeeded in cleansing that part of the country of the Islamist terrorists. It should be obvious to everyone that there cannot be a political accommodation with the Islamist terrorists — the Muslim Brotherhood and its protégés — not in Libya or any other country. To reach a political accommodation with the Muslim Brotherhood is akin to asking the US White House to share power with the drugs mafia or urge Westminster to enter talks with jihadist Anjem Choudary. Therefore, Libya’s elected authorities and their army, the LNA, must seize every opportunity to arm and train themselves to fight for their country’s freedom, independence and territorial integrity. This is their fight for survival, not Washington’s, Brussels’s or Moscow’s.”>>

Many Americans See The Hand Of God At Work In Current Events

2020 has been an incredibly bizarre year up to this point, and this has many people wondering if the hand of God is at work.  And the worse things get, the more this sort of speculation will heat up.  When things get crazy, people search for answers, and that can be a good thing.  Because the truth is that during normal times most of us are way too self-absorbed and most of us spend far too little time thinking about the things that really matter.  2020 has really shaken up a large portion of the U.S. population, and we should hope that all of this shaking ultimately moves our society in a more positive direction.

Right now, COVID-19 is dominating the headlines day after day, and the debates that I have seen on social media platforms about this pandemic have often gotten quite heated.

I knew that many people had extremely passionate opinions about COVID-19, but what I didn’t realize is that a large percentage of them are also convinced that God is somehow involved.  In fact, an Associated Press/NORC survey found that 63 percent of all religious Americans believe that this pandemic is “a sign from God”…

Sixty-three percent of religious Americans say that the novel coronavirus pandemic is a sign from God, telling humanity to change its ways of living, according a new poll.

The poll, which was conducted by the Associated Press/NORC, surveyed 1,002 U.S. adults who say they believe in God.

I was stunned to see a number that high.  The Bible does tell us that there will be “pestilences” in the last days, and it would have been very interesting to see how many respondents to that survey believe that this COVID-19 pandemic is one of those pestilences.

In any event, if this pandemic actually does inspire vast numbers of Americans to live better lives, that would definitely be a positive outcome.

Unfortunately, that does not appear to be happening.  Instead, surveys have shown that Americans are increasingly turning to drugs, alcohol and television during this pandemic, and a survey that was released just this week found that Bible reading in the United States dropped precipitously “between January and June”

The number of American adults the American Bible Society considers “Scripture engaged” based on how frequently they read Scripture and its impact on their relationships and choices dropped significantly from 28% to 22.7% between January and June, according to additional data collected by the organization in June.

Another thing that has many Americans speculating is the very unusual storm that hit New York City on Wednesday.  A massive thunderstorm sent wind gusts of up to 75 mph howling through the city, and at one point “purple lightning bolts” were photographed striking One World Trade Center…

Dramatic photos captured the moment purple lightning bolts struck the tip of One World Trade Center – while smaller bolts scattered across the sky in New York City.

Huge bolts of lightning were also photographed hitting the middle of the Hudson River, near Lower Manhattan – making an eerie sight.

Could that lightning strike have some sort of spiritual significance?

I certainly do not know.  But when video footage emerged of lightning hitting “on or behind” the Statue of Liberty, that fueled the speculation even more…

Video footage captured the moment lighting bolts struck on or behind Lady Liberty with dark clouds seen overhead.

Mikey Cee, who took the 21-second video from Ellis Island and shared it to Twitter, wrote: “The best video I ever captured. #NewYork #WeatherChannel #NYC.”

In addition, a lightning bolt also hit the steeple of a church, and this caused a very dangerous fire

The FDNY responded to the fire at the Spirit and Truth Christian Church on Sutter Avenue just after 7:30 p.m.

Crews worked hard to save the house of worship as flames raced up the front of the building, right beneath the steeple.

Neighbors say the clap of thunder that preceded the fire was even more dramatic than the actual flames.

Witnesses say the steeple took a direct hit from a lightning bolt.

In normal times, perhaps a thunderstorm of this nature would be largely ignored.

But these are not normal times.

On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, people are buzzing about the fact that the locust armies that have been absolutely devastating parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia have now made their way to Europe.

Farms on the Italian island of Sardinia are now being ravaged by desert locusts, and one British news source is using the term “biblical plague” to describe what is happening…

In a situation reminiscent of a biblical plague, the  have stripped large areas of the island’s agricultural regions of crops, in what the World Bank has already been branded the most serious such invasion the world has faced in 70 years. The epicentre is formed by the municipalities of Orani, Ottana and Bolotana in the Tirso valley, with  having arrived from the Middle East and , where 23 countries have experienced similar problems.

Over the past several months, I have written several articles about this very unusual plague and the impact that it is having on the global food supply.  Some of the swarms are as large as major cities, and when the locusts descend upon a farm they can literally eat everything there in as little as 30 seconds.

Lastly, I wanted to mention a very close encounter that we will have with an asteroid on November 2nd.  Apparently, a rock known as “2018 VP1” is supposed to pass very close to our planet on that day

There’s a video on Youtube saying we are about to have another “very-close encounter” with an asteroid. What the Jet Propulsion Lab in California calls “Near-Earth-Objects” or NEOs. Now keep in mind asteroids have been coming close or have hit our planet for millions of years, and many do daily. The bulk of asteroids and debris in space as you may remember from science class get burned up in the atmosphere, caused by the friction from the air as objects hit the atmosphere going many thousands of miles per hour.

However, one Youtube video says an asteroid called “2018 VP1“, which is about 6 feet diameter will pass within about 300 miles of our planet on November 2, 2020. However, some experts are saying this nothing to fear. First off there’s the math, asteroid “2018 VP1” is projected to come 0.02 times the distance between the earth and the moon. Given that the moon is 239,000 miles away, 0.02 equates to 4,780 miles. Now your thinking that’s far off right? What’s the big deal? Well, when they compute this stuff through orbital mechanics, they use the center of the celestial body, in this case, the earth. The earth is 7,917 miles across, and half that is 3,958 miles. That is where the video correctly gets its 300-mile estimate from, or a drive from Metro Detroit to Sault Sainte Marie in the UP to put it in perspective.

The good news is that this asteroid is so small that it is not likely to cause any damage even if it enters our atmosphere.

But I have noticed that there is a tremendous amount of discussion about asteroids on social media lately, and scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before a very large rock does slam into our planet.

A lot of people do not like to be reminded of such things, but realizing how dependent we are on God for every breath that we take leads to humility.  Sometimes we need something to shake us up so that we will turn back to Him.

It is so easy to lose sight of what really matters, and that is why we should be thankful for events that come along that cause us to step back and consider the bigger picture.

FIRE IN THE HOLE: $22 Silver – GOLDMAN SACHS BULLISH!

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends. 

Gold is experiencing a BRILLIANT 2020 thus far, up 14%, and HANDILY BEATING both the traditional stock indices and its LITTLE SISTER, silver.

Because of safe-haven demand, the metal has been a TREMENDOUS VALUE-ADD for parking cash, far superior to fiat currencies and bonds.

I want to stress MY PERSONAL OPINION that the more eccentric central banks become, the more gold’s ULTIMATE VALUE will reveal itself.

Its DOOMSDAY worth will be mostly unearthed when the FED’s official 2% inflation emerges because that’s what the world’s investors have ENGRAINED IN MIND as their benchmark for deeming inflation as a problem. Below that, they ignore gold, for the most part.

When the notion that debt restructuring IS REAL, that’s when loss of faith in the current system will prove that gold, being that it is without COUNTERPARTY LIABILITY, is the only real safe haven and its value proposition will be strongest at work.

The U.S. economy has peaked for the time being (2-3 years), in our opinion. It will continue to grow steadily, but it needs to find ITS NEW DIRECTION because the age of globalization has certainly peaked.

With the regime change in China in 1978, a country of 1B citizens was standing there full of potential but with NOTHING AT HAND. Special Opportunity Zones emerged in conjunction with the U.S. government and globalization HIT OVERDRIVE.

China is no longer cheap today and Africa is the future of cheap labor pools, but it is a continent that is COMPLETELY different from China.

As an economic tool, globalization will continue to play a pivotal role in corporate profitability, but it won’t be the primary driver of thick margins.

The world has evolved and COVID-19 has CHANGED PRIORITIES for multinationals. They now cherish reliability over cost optimization in an uncertain political landscape. America no longer serves as a tailwind for corporate outsourcing.

As you can see above, economic indicators have retraced all the way back to 2014 levels, but they won’t BOUNCE RIGHT BACK because the pandemic has changed some businesses for good.

Not only has globalization (which has been the STRONGEST TREND in 40 years for corporate expansion) peaked in popularity, but COVID-19 has proven the MORAL HAZARD THEORY is now set in motion in a big way.

If this is the first time you’re hearing this term, get used to it. Just like MMT (Modern Monetary Theory), this one is entering mainstream jargon.

As you can see above, corporations are ISSUING RECORD AMOUNTS of DEBT, taking advantage of government stimulus plans and central bank intervention programs.

While the classic value investors, who have ruled the 20th century, CRY WOLF, a new playbook of investment rules has crept in, which has made it so that Warren Buffett’s performance has lagged for years, as well as several other Great Depression-era billionaires.

While they are accustomed to purchasing companies when they trade for CHEAP MULTIPLES in the way that Benjamin Graham taught in the decades that followed the 1929-1932 period, today’s investors COUNT ON central banks to disallow collapses and resets, thus they’re thinking differently.

I’m working on an EXCLUSIVE REPORT about this that will explain this thoroughly.

When the American consumer regains its footing, Goldman Sachs believes silver will hit $22/ounce, so know that market sentiment towards the recovery metal, the industrial precious metal, is gaining traction.

African kente cloths worn by Democrats in political stunt have roots in African slave trade

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other top Democratic leaders marched into the U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center last week and knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds, the same amount of time that fired Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin kneeled on George Floyd’s neck.

But it was what the congressional Democrats wore — traditional West African kente cloths — that made headlines. In fact, they were harshly criticized for what came across as mere pandering.

As it turns out, those kente cloths have roots in the African slave trade, according to a USA Today fact check.

The day following the political stunt, Facebook user Dave Brandon claimed, in a post that received thousands of shares, that the scarves are connected to African slave traders.

Brandon wrote:

So check this out, Kente cloth was worn by the Ashanti. It’s made of silk so the affluent wore it. The Ashanti were also known as slave owners and traders. Huh? The Ashanti’s long-time ally, the Akwamu, were among the first ones to profit from the slave trade with the Europeans. Their captives were almost always prisoners of war, but they were not above to selling Akwamu men who offended the chief. They also kidnapped able-bodied men from other tribes and sold them in the coastal slave markets.

According to USA Today’s fact check, Brandon is correct.

The kente cloth comes from “the Asante, or Ashanti, peoples of Ghana and Ewe peoples of Ghana and Togo,” according to USA Today. Asantehene Osei Tutu, the first ruler of the Asante Kingdom, adopted the scarf as a royal symbol, the fact check explained.

From USA Today:

Tutu, who lived from 1660 to 1712 or 1717, unified several small Asante kingdoms to create the Asante empire. He is credited with expanding the Asante throughout most of Ghana and introducing his subjects to the gold and slave trades along the West African coast.

The Asante supplied British and Dutch traders with slaves in exchange for firearms, which they used to expand their empire. Slaves were often acquired as tributes from smaller states or captured during war. Some slaves were brought across the Atlantic whiles others stayed in Africa to work in gold fields.

By the end of the 18th century, the region was exporting between 6,000 and 7,000 African slaves per year, according to the BBC.

However, in modern times, the kente cloth has become a symbol of African pride and is traditionally worn during special occasions.

Diana Baird N’Diyea, cultural specialist and senior curator at the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, told USA Today she places the significance of the Kente in the people who craft them — not the scarf’s origins.

“My way of thinking about it is that it honors the creativity, the ingenuity, the skill of the people who actually make the kente,” she said.

Man violates coronavirus lockdown, gets eaten by crocodile

Across the U.S., various cities and states are on lockdown orders. Local governments are taking it seriously — the mayor of Los Angeles has even said that power and water will be shut off for “nonessential” businesses that refuse to close.

So it’s no wonder that many people fear being forcibly dispersed or arrested or tracked by drones if they violate their governments’ stay-home orders.

But there’s something worse than seemingly over-eager law enforcement for at least some folks who chose to violate governmental lockdown commands: crocodiles.

Wait a minute. Crocs?

As cases of COVID-19 in the eastern African country of Rwanda climbed, authorities there implemented a “total lockdown” Sunday, the BBC reported. So far, Rwanda has at least 40 confirmed cases.

The government has reportedly said it would help people struggling under the order, but that has apparently done little for the many poor citizens who were negatively impacted almost immediately.

On Wednesday morning, an unidentified man breached the lockdown to go fishing along the Nyabarongo River, according to the BBC. While he was out at the river, he was killed and eaten by a crocodile.

Alice Kayitesi, the mayor of the district where the man was killed, said the man “had broken the stay-home rule, he’s among very few people here who are not co-operating with the lockdown,” the BBC reported.

The outlet also noted that, according to local news reporting Monday, police in another Rwandan district shot and killed two men during a dispute over the lockdown.

Zimbabwe Begs White Farmers To Return As Nation Teeters On Brink Of ‘Manmade Starvation’

Crisis-torn Zimbabwe is on the brink of “manmade starvation” with most households unable to obtain enough food to meet basic standards, a UN envoy has said.

This comes 17 years after Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwean government seized large swathes of land from white farmers in the country, triggering a rapid downturn in the country’s economy.

“The people of Zimbabwe are slowly getting to a point of suffering a manmade starvation,” said Hilal Elver, the UN special rapporteur on the right to food.

Six of 10 Vaccines Studied Increase Mortality

Story at-a-glance

The improved measles vaccine rolled out in Africa in 1989 was found to double mortality from other diseases in girls. The diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine (DTP) was found to have the same disastrous effect, doubling mortality among children under the age of 5, and girls were again more likely to die
Inactivated (non-live) vaccines — the DTP, pentavalent vaccine, inactivated polio vaccine, H1N1 influenza vaccine and the hepatitis B vaccine — all increased all-cause mortality, especially among girls, even when they offered a high degree of protection against the target disease

PENTAGON’S OWN MAP OF U.S. BASES IN AFRICA CONTRADICTS ITS CLAIM OF “LIGHT” FOOTPRINT

LAST MONTH, ABOUT a dozen al-Shabab fighters infiltrated the perimeter of a military base in Manda Bay, Kenya. One of them took aim with a rocket-propelled grenade, firing at a U.S. surveillance plane and touching off an hourslong firefight. When it was all over, the two American pilots of that plane and a U.S. soldier were dead, two other U.S. military personnel were wounded, six surveillance aircraft and helicopters were destroyed, and parts of the airfield were in flames.

Where there are U.S. bases, there is the potential for such attacks, because bases are not just launching pads for offensive military operations, but targets for them too.
