Economic Terrorism Continues: Ireland Imposes A 6-Week Lockdown

The economic terrorism committed by governments worldwide is growing yet again. Ireland will be the first European country to return to a nationwide shutdown as COVID-19 cases rise, Prime Minister Micheal Martin said Monday.

Additionally, the government knows they are committing terrorism, as they admitted the lockdown is going to result in another 150,000 people losing their job or source of income over the next “couple of days,” Deputy Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said. The country is entering its highest level of coronavirus restrictions for six weeks, beginning midnight Wednesday night, according to a report by Activist Post.  

The lockdown is being blamed on a “surge” in COVID-19 cases. Residents of Ireland are banned from traveling more than three miles away from their homes or going anywhere that is deemed “non-essential.” Following in Australia’s footsteps, it looks like Ireland may be the next country to see the New World Order’s martial law rolled out in force.

Australia is a Full-Scale Pilot Test For The New World Order

“We’re making a preemptive strike against the virus, acting before it’s too late,” Varadkar said during the news conference Monday. “Our objective is to change the structure of the virus to flatten the curve again to get it under control.” These new measures will be enforced by the police.

Police will continue to use road checkpoints to deter longer and nonessential journeys. Varadkar said there will be a penalty for travel beyond that distance, but he added that details are being finalized. There will be exemptions for work and essential purposes.

Ireland has seen nearly 51,000 confirmed cases and more than 1,850 deaths, according to the nation’s Department of Health. Cases have risen by 75% since the beginning of September, and the infection rate is 261 cases for every 100,000 people.  That means that for 51,000 cases, 150,000 people will lose their jobs in a country of almost 5 million.

Lockdowns are ramping up all over and the mainstream media continues to report on the surging cases of COVID-19 in the United States.  Be ready, because this scamdemic is not over. Anything is still possible. Stay prepared.

Here We Go: MSM Begins Propagating a “Third Wave” of COVID-19

Last Minute Prepping Advice: Be Ready For Literally ANYTHING!

Human Rights Watchdog Says Governments Using Pandemic To Crack Down On Online Dissent

This article was originally published by Aaron Kessel at Activist Post.

Governments around the world are using the ongoing pandemic to crack down on online dissent according to a human rights watchdog.

Washington-based Freedom House said dozens of countries have cited CV as a means “to justify expanded surveillance powers and the deployment of new technologies that were once seen as too intrusive.” They added that it marks the 10th consecutive annual decline in internet freedom, Barron’s reported.

The expansion of technological systems is enabling governments’ social control, according to the report.

“The pandemic is accelerating society’s reliance on digital technologies at a time when the internet is becoming less and less free,” said Michael Abramowitz, president of the nonprofit group.

“Without adequate safeguards for privacy and the rule of law, these technologies can be easily repurposed for political repression.”

China was singled out in the report noting, Chinese authorities “combined low- and high-tech tools not only to manage the outbreak of the coronavirus but also to deter internet users from sharing information from independent sources and challenging the official narrative.”

The report stated this shows a growing trend toward Chinese-style “digital authoritarianism” globally and a “splintering” of the internet as each government imposes its own regulations for citizens.

Freedom House said that of the estimated 3.8 billion people using the internet, just 20 percent live in countries with free internet, 32 percent in countries “partly free,” while 35 percent were in places where online activities are not free. The remainder live in countries that weren’t among the 65 assessed.

The report cited declines in countries where authorities have imposed internet shutdowns including Myanmar, Kyrgyzstan, and India, and in Rwanda for its use of “sophisticated spyware to monitor and intimidate exiled dissidents.”

Activist Post has previously reported that countries were using the pandemic to shutdown online dissent back in May of this year. Expressing that governments around the world were using fake news to hide behind their online censorship efforts. Hungary is one of the countries that began arresting citizens for allegedly spreading fake news related to the CV pandemic as ordered by Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Hungary isn’t the only country that is using the CV crisis to push draconian laws on its citizens.  Activist Post previously reported early on during the CV outbreak that two individuals were arrested under Thailand’s new “Anti-Fake News Center” for spreading false information about the coronavirus. Malaysia also issued four arrests of its citizens for spreading rumors and “disinformation,” according to a report by Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post. Those “suspects” included a tutor, two pharmacy assistants, and a university student whom if found guilty will face upwards to a $12,000 fine and up to 1 year in prison if convicted.

Then there is China, which arrested 8 people who were charged with spreading rumors about a virus before the coronavirus was publicly known. Beyond that, China recently highlighted what can be done with such a law by censoring a media outlet Caijing, which is one of the most reputable outlets in the country. In that article, the authors claimed that China significantly underreported both cases and deaths, especially among the elderly. (archive) (translation)

Another country, Singapore, on April 1st proposed a law to combat online fake news. Under the draft law, those who spread online falsehoods with a malicious intent to harm public interest could face jail terms of up to 10 years, Reuters reported.

Activist Post previously highlighted that the CV pandemic would be used as a Trojan horse to take away our rights and be used to push increased digital surveillance via our smartphones. But that’s not all, it also serves a means for other facial recognition technology to be more frequently used. Top10VPN continues to monitor the increase of the police state and decrease of our digital and physical rights noting the following figures.

  • 120 contact tracing apps are available in 71 countries
  • 45 apps now use Google and Apple’s API
  • The U.S. has 23 apps, more than any other country in the world
  • 19 apps, with 4 million downloads combined, have no privacy policy

Digital Tracking Measures:

  • 60 digital tracking measures have been introduced in 38 countries
  • Telecom providers have shared user data in 20 countries

Physical Surveillance Initiatives:

  • 43 physical surveillance measures have been adopted in 27 countries
  • Drones have been used in 22 countries to help enforce lockdowns
  • Europe introduced more surveillance measures than any other region

As Activist Post previously wrote while discussing the increase of a police surveillance state, these measures being put into place now will likely remain long after the pandemic has stopped and the virus has run its course. That’s the everlasting effect that COVID-19 will have on our society.  The coronavirus may very well be a legitimate health concern for all of us around the world. But it’s the government’s response that should worry us all more in the long run.

Casedemic Cases China Death economic destruction enslavement entire city Europe freedom Headline News human rights Intelwars liberty lockdowns Mainstream media Mass testing Obey plandemic propaganda Qingdao scamdemic Second wave SLAVERY surge wake up

Europe Locks Down Again, China Institutes MASS TESTING Of ENTIRE CITY

The coronavirus “second wave” we’ve been promised is here.  European countries are locking down and restricting basic human rights once again as China takes to mass testing of an entire town.

Things are ramping up again. This scamdemic is going to go on for as long as the governments of the world can get away with it.

China has rushed to test the entire city Qingdao for COVID-19. The population of Qingdao is 9 million. Meanwhile, Europe is locking people down again and eliminating its economy in the process. Many mainstream media outlets are still reporting that the virus is spreading rapidly around the globe and we should all be terrified of it.

In Europe, the Netherlands imposed a “partial lockdown” to “control” one of the region’s worst outbreaks. According to the Mumbai Mirror, Labour opposition leader Keir Starmer in Great Britain called for a 2-3 week “circuit break” lockdown.  France has declared a national state of emergency within the past 24 hours. France is now expected to lockdown more people and restrict basic human rights to help stop a surge in cases.

The “Second Wave” Is Here As Expected, Bill Gates Says This One Will Get Our Attention

Dr. Fauci Warns of Winter Once Again: “I Think We’re Facing a Whole Lot of Trouble”

CNBC reported that the COVID-19 hoax is “out of control” in Europe so people should submit to horrific oppression. The U.K. is appearing to approach a second national lockdown and Germany introducing further rules to restrict the spread of the virus.

Deutsche Bank strategists (elitists installing the New World Order) led by Jim Reid said that Wednesday’s developments reflected “sadly yet another day of bad news out of Europe,” and warned that Italy was also seeing a sharp rise in cases, having lagged its neighbors in seeing a second wave.

Coronavirus COVID-19 deep fakes Donald Trump economic effects Economy experts fiat currency Forecasting freedom Gold governments are ineffective Headline News human rights illusion of freedom Intelwars LIES loss of freedom Mainstream media money original political failure Precious Metals rebllion Silver stimulus Wealth

Gantz: People Are Rebelling More Over Economic Effects, Than The Loss of Freedom

Recently, Lior Gantz sat down with Shawn at SGT Report to be interviewed about the state of the economy, and so much more. Gantz says what is most concerning is that people are rebelling more from the economic effects than they are over the loss of so much of their freedom and rights.

Gantz, the owner of WealthReserchroup.com, says his biggest fear over all of this, is “people are rebelling more because of the economics of [lockdowns, mask tyranny] and not because of the societal part of it, the freedom part of it.” The people who have suffered “economic strain are angrier than the people that are just quarantined or have sort of a measure that restricts them.”  That’s a mind-bending reality and hopefully, one which changes. People should cherish their freedom over their wealth.

Gantz goes on to say that the one thin this non-lethal virus has exposed is how ineffective governments around the world have become.  All people really want is more stimulus, more money, and they are willing to exchange their freedom and basic human rights for another stimulus package. He notes that everything in our society has become politicized, even this virus.

As a person who watches what does on from the outside, Gantz says the mainstream media in the United States is “almost like a joke. The scripts are offensive to the intelligence of the average person..it’s more than just lies…it’s the little things to tilt your mindset to what you’re watching.”

Coronavirus Panic & Fear: The Greatest Mainstream Media Hoax In History

Gantz then discusses how much better gold and silver will be than cash, as it already is. He says gold will continue to go up, and when it hits the $2,000 range again will be psychological. There is a real existential crisis with the dollar and the national debt, and Gantz says silver can possibly go above $50.

Gantz then discusses Bitcoin and recognizes its potential.  “The world is not going to paying with gold, it is going to paying with Bitcoin,” he says.

cases rise Coronavirus COVID-19 Dr. anthony fauci Emergency Preparedness experts fear porn government tyrants Headline News human rights Intelwars johns hopkins university lapdog media lockdown Mainstream media news Preparedness reporting short supply SLAVERY States time is running out tyrants United States Vaccine

Brace Yourselves: MSM Reports Coronavirus Cases Are Up in 11 States

It’s coming: the second lockdown appears all but imminent. The mainstream media is now reporting that the coronavirus cases are on the rise. Brace yourself for another lockdown.

COVID-19 cases were growing by 5% or more, based on a weekly average to smooth out daily reporting, in 11 states as of Sunday, according to a CNBC analysis of data collected by Johns Hopkins University, an increase from eight states on Friday.

While cases are growing in 11 states, the overall daily average of new cases in the U.S. is declining. Over the past seven days, the country has reported an average of about 34,300 new cases per day, down more than 15% compared with a week ago, according to a CNBC analysis of Hopkins data. That’s far lower than the roughly 70,000 new cases a day the U.S. was reporting weeks ago. So that means they’ll open up more, right? Doubtful. If the statistics don’t fit the aenda, they will be made to fit the agenda.

It won’t be long before the “experts” start to see a rise in cases all over the country and in all states. It will not take much more than what’s already been reported to worsen to the point of another lockdown.  Please take the time to prepare for what’s coming. Based in what’s being broadcasted now, that there could very well be another harsh lockdown and soon.

Things that I, personally have noticed are in short supply are seeds and canning jars. If you can find either, I suggest grabbing them. If you have doubts about what else is planned for us, take note:

Even if a vaccine is approved to be distributed before the end of the year, it will likely be in short supply. The vaccine will likely require two doses at varying intervals, and states still face logistical challenges such as setting up distribution sites and acquiring enough needles, syringes and bottles needed for immunizations.

For now, leaders can stop new outbreaks by practicing the “basics” of public health and disease control, medical experts and officials say. –CNBC

If we translate that last sentence, CNBC is saying that tyrants in government should forcibly remove basic human rights until we can all be forcibly vaccinated.

Scrolling through the news today was not comforting. It’s time to make sure your preps are in order. Time is running out. Stay safe, and hopefully, you can stay alert and be fearless in the face of this New World Order attempted takeover.

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

Afkari brothers Dana white human rights Intelwars Iran Iran human rights Navid afkari President Trump

Iran executes champion wrestler despite pleas from President Trump and Dana White to spare his life

An Iranian champion wrestler has been executed despite international outcries and pleas from President Donald Trump and UFC president Dana White to spare his life.

Navid Afkari, a 27-year-old Greco-Roman wrestler, participated in anti-government protests against Iran’s Shia theocracy in 2018. Iranian authorities accused Afkari of stabbing a water supply company security guard in the southern city of Shiraz during the civil unrest.

Iranian officials claim that Afkari’s mobile phone had been in the area where Hassan Turkman was murdered. Authorities alleged there is surveillance footage of him walking down a street, talking on his phone, near the crime scene. Iranian authorities claimed Afkari stabbed Turkman in the back, over a “personal dispute,” without elaborating.

In July, Afkari was convicted of the murder of Turkman, and hit with other charges. A provincial court in Shiraz sentenced Afkari to death for the murder.

The wrestler’s brothers Vahid Afkari and Habib Afkari were sentenced to 54 and 27 years in prison, respectively, as well as 74 lashes for each man. The Afkari brothers were charged with 20 different crimes, including “attending illegal gatherings, assembly and conspiracy to commit crimes against national security and insulting the supreme leader.” Iran’s Supreme Court rejected a review of the case in late August.

Iran broadcast the wrestler’s confession on state TV last week. The mother of the brothers, Behieh Namjou, claimed that the three men confessed to the killing under torture. She pleaded for mercy from authorities for her children.

Afkari’s death sentence caused international outcry for the wrestler to be spared from the death penalty.

“These brothers are the latest victims of Iran’s deeply flawed criminal justice system, and their case is further evidence that Iranian courts systematically rely on ‘confessions’ obtained under torture and other ill-treatment to secure criminal convictions, in contravention of international law,” said Diana Eltahawy, Amnesty International’s deputy regional director for the Middle East and North Africa.

“Amnesty International is calling on the international community, including UN human rights bodies and EU member states, to urgently intervene and demand the Iranian authorities immediately reveal the fate and whereabouts of these three brothers and to save Navid Afkari from execution,” Eltahawy said on Friday.

Iranian actress and human rights defender Nazanin Boniadi brought awareness to Afkari’s case.

UFC president Dana White wrote, “Iran, please spare Navid Afkari.”

“This week the New York Times wrote a story about a very famous wrestler from Iran – his name is Navid Afkari,” White says in the video. “He went to a peaceful protest in Iran, and he is gonna be executed for that.”

“It was brought to my attention. This guys is – first of all he is human being,” White continued. “Number two he is one of us, could be any of my fighters.”

“The only I thing I thought to do is to call the President [Donald Trump] and see if he could help this man,” White revealed. “He said ‘let us look into it, we’ll talk to my administration and see if there is something we can do to save his life’.”

President Donald Trump pleaded for Iran to not execute Afkari.

“Hearing that Iran is looking to execute a great and popular wrestling star, 27-year-old Navid Afkarai, whose sole act was an anti-government demonstration on the streets,” President Trump tweeted on Sept. 3. “They were protesting the ‘country’s worsening economic situation and inflation’ To the leaders of Iran, I would greatly appreciate if you would spare this young man’s life, and not execute him. Thank you!”

On Tuesday, a global union representing 85,000 athletes called for Iran’s expulsion from international sports competitions if it executed Afkari, according to Reuters.

Navid Afkari was executed on Saturday, according to Iranian state media.

“The retaliation sentence against Navid Afkari, the killer of Hassan Turkman, was carried out this morning in Adelabad prison in Shiraz,” said the chief justice of Fars province, Kazem Mousavi, on Iranian state TV on Saturday. Mousavi said the execution occurred “after legal procedures were carried out at the insistence of the parents and the family of the victim.”

Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad wrote, “In a taped message from inside the prison, Navid said: ‘If I’m hanged, know that an innocent man has been killed.'”

Beliefs Christians Death Emergency Preparedness Ethiopia extremists Headline News human rights Intelwars killing Mainstream media Murder Nigeria Religious Persecution sadness Seattle speak up SUDAN wake up

The Persecution Of Christians Is Escalating Dramatically All Over The World

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream.

All over the globe, thousands upon thousands of Christians are being ruthlessly killed simply because of what they believe.  But if you only rely on corporate-controlled media sources for your news, you literally never hear about this relentless persecution.  In fact, in this article I don’t link to a single mainstream news source.

I had to go to Christian news websites to document what I am about to share with you, because the mainstream media avoids stories such as these like the plague.  Of course if innocent people were being systematically butchered for a reason that aligned with the various agendas that they are constantly pushing, the mainstream media would be all over this.  It greatly upsets me that the deaths of Christians are treated as if they don’t really matter, and we continue to see the global persecution of Christians escalate year after year.

For example, just take a look at what is happening in Ethiopia.  Extremists have been conducting a door-to-door campaign as they search for Christians to kill…

At least 500 Christians have been killed in an ongoing spate of coordinated door-to-door attacks and thousands of traumatized survivors have fled for their lives over the last two months in southern Ethiopia’s Oromia regional state, including its capital Addis Ababa, according to reports.

For most of you, this is probably the very first time that you have ever heard about this.

This just shows the power of the mainstream media.  If they don’t talk about it, then most of the population will never even know that it exists.

But we should be talking about it, because what is taking place is absolutely horrifying.  In some instances, Christian parents are literally being slaughtered in front of their children

“The Qeerroo extremists arrived in cars and, armed with guns, machetes, swords and spears, sought out and slaughtered Christians. Children were forced to witness their parents being brutally murdered with machetes,” it added.

An Oromo Christian was beheaded after he refused to tear off the thread around his neck, which is worn by many Ethiopian Christians as a sign of their baptism. The attackers told his wife that only those who prostrate before Allah for prayer are considered part of the Oromo community.

This should be one of the greatest human rights causes of our day, but the silence coming from the mainstream media is deafening.

It is almost as if there is a concerted effort not to talk about this.

But I refuse to keep silent.  These precious lives matter, and I am going to talk about them.

In South Sudan, 23 Christians were gunned down at a church gathering on July 27th, and the attackers apparently decided that was not enough and so they decided to burn down an entire village

Meanwhile, in South Sudan, six children who had been taken hostage were among the 23 people killed when unidentified gunmen attacked an Anglican church in Jonglei State on July 27. At least 20 others were wounded.

“After killing people in the church, the gunmen went to the homestead village and killed people there,” Bishop Moses Anur Ayom told the Episcopal News Service. “The gunmen burned down the whole village in Makol Chuei.”

Once again, I’ll bet you never heard about this story until now.

On the other side of the continent, thousands of Christians are being systematically eliminated by extremists in Nigeria

This year already nearly 2,000 Christians have been mercilessly hacked and shot to death in surprise raids on their villages. These deadly, senseless attacks are often portrayed as ongoing clashes between farmers and herders. Those who follow closely believe they are part of a larger agenda — seemingly supported by government officials and security agencies — to drive Christians off their lands. Nigerian citizens have been disarmed by the government, but somehow, the Militant Fulani herdsmen are armed to the teeth and have no fear of encountering security response or capture.

This is something that has been going on throughout all of 2020, and this is another story that I’ll bet you have never heard about until this article.

I could keep going through more examples in Africa, but let’s switch gears.

In India, religious extremists regularly kill Christians, but those deaths rarely get much attention.  Here are just a few examples

A young woman in the Khunti district of Jharkhand has become the fifth victim in a string of Christians killed in India because of their faith.

The woman, 25-year-old Suman Munda, was found dead on July 19 in a deserted place near her home, according to Vatican News. Just one month earlier, on June 24, another Christian, 27-year-old Ramji Munda, was killed outside a village in the Khunti district.

Overall, the number of attacks on Christians in India just seems to keep rising year after year.  In 2019, one group recorded “527 cases of persecution against Christians”

The killing of Christians in India is on the rise.

In 2019, Persecution Relief, a group dedicated to helping persecuted Christians in India, recorded 527 cases of persecution against Christians, compared to 447 cases in 2018.

Sadly, the final number for 2020 will probably be the highest that we have seen so far.

But at least things in India are not as bad as they are in China.  As I have discussed previously, the Chinese government seems to have decided that the elimination of the Christian faith should be official government policy.  Over the past couple of years, countless churches have been raided, countless pastors have been imprisoned, and countless Bibles have been burned.

And even hundreds of pro-government “churches” that do everything that the central government tells them to do are still having their crosses taken down

Bitter Winter reported on June 9 that crosses had been removed from over 250 state-run Three-Self churches in the eastern province of Anhui in the first four months of the year. According to the newly received information, an additional 656 state-run Protestant venues in the province had lost their crosses during the first half of this year, the total exceeding 900.

Thankfully, we aren’t facing this level of persecution in the western world yet, but many of our politicians have used the pandemic that we are experiencing to implement very strict restrictions on Christian gatherings.

In fact, the city of Seattle temporarily shut down an entire park the other day in order to prevent a Christian worship event from taking place.  The following comes from Todd Starnes

The City of Seattle shut down a local park in advance of a massive gathering of Christian worshippers.

Christians were banned from the park, but not Black Lives Matter or Antifa. Let that sink in, folks.

The organizers could have completely canceled the event, but instead they decided to take it to the streets and rebrand it as a “worship protest”

But instead of canceling the event, the Christians simply relocated the service to the street and called it a “worship protest.”

Brilliant!

It was wonderful to see such a diverse group of people all worshipping the Lord together under a beautiful blue sky.

But you can be sure that officials in Seattle will be brainstorming ways that they can prevent such a thing from happening again in the future.

Hatred of Christians is rapidly rising all over the globe, and it is going to get a whole lot worse in the years ahead.

Sadly, the corporate-controlled media will almost certainly continue to ignore the persecution that is happening because it definitely does not fit any of the agendas that they are trying to push.

That is extremely unfortunate, because every one of these lives that is being lost is of immense value, and their stories deserve to be told.

Americans be free businesses are doomed civil disobedience control the mind COVID-19 CRISIS disobey free people don't ask for permission Headline News human rights Intelwars Licenses LIES live free livelihoods obsolete permits political overlords propaganda puppets pushback reality of government ruling class scamdemic they need us United States wake up we don't need them

Americans Slowly Wake Up: Some Are Becoming Less Willing To Beg For Permission

Americans may be slowly starting to wake up to their slavery.  Many have become less willing to beg the government for permission to make a living in light of the ever-tightening restriction on our very humanity.

Government officials claim that doing business is a revocable “privilege,” but many Americans see it as a basic human right that they’ll exercise with or without licenses and permits, according to a report by Reason.  Finally, we are seeing some push back against the government. It may be late, but it’s better than nothing.

As the COVID-19 scamdemic narrative continues to simmer and lose its fear factor, the one competency that officials have consistently displayed is in tightening the screws, using the licenses and permissions they require as enforcement tools. For people tired of being bossed around, the obvious response is to carry on without the government’s imprimatur—and they’re doing so in droves. It’s an attitude likely to live on long after the crisis has passed.

This is the kind of thing that will eventually make governments obsolete. Keep in mind, we do not need them for anything. They desperately need you to believe you need them, but we don’t. They need us, and that’s the disgusting truth they hope we never find out.

People across the United States have finally gotten to a point where they have nothing left to lose. “Our businesses are doomed,” Chris Polone, co-owner of a Fort Worth bar that was one of more than 800 such establishments to open in defiance of Texas closure orders, said at the end of July. “We have nothing to lose. We can either fight this thing, or we can starve ourselves out.”

As apocalyptic as that sounds, it’s a reasonable statement when the review site Yelp reports that 55 percent of all businesses shut during the pandemic is believed to have closed their doors forever. For many entrepreneurs, breaking the rules may be the only way to survive.

Free men and women don’t ask for permission to live or survive anyway. They already know that they were born free and no amount of voting or heavy-handed government can tell them what to live.  People all over seem to be realizing that historically, government has not been a friend of the people, but a way to slowly amass more power until there is nothing the public can do.  But people have been backed into a corner now, so the realization that they are either going to be free or live a life of enslavement to the ruling class is a choice to be made now.

However, those who are wanting complete control of everyone on this earth will not give up easily, and it’s important to note that they will double down as more people wake up and become free. Don’t fall for the fear, live freely as the creator intended, and stay alert. 2020 is not over yet.

Agenda 21 be aware control Coronavirus Corporations Dr. anthony fauci elitists enslavement Fascism Federal Reserve Headline News human rights Intelwars Jim Murren LIES live free Mainstream media Mask Masters New World Order no fear Occult own the planet political puppets Prepare propaganda PSYCHOPATHS slaves spiritual warfare submission to the state third wave tyrants wake up wear a mask

Mask Propaganda Intensifies: It’s “NOT Your Right To NOT Wear A Mask”

This is nothing new, but for some strange reason, the political puppets need you all to wear a mask. Jim Murren, the head of Nevada’s coronavirus task force says it is “not your right to not wear a mask.”

This lacks logic on all fronts. It’s still difficult to figure out why they are so desperate to get as many people as possible in face masks unless this isn’t about logic at all, but control. Murren, who heads the Nevada COVID-19 Response, Relief, and Recovery Task Force, made the comments at the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance’s Las Vegas Perspective event on Tuesday.

It surprising that people aren’t just returning to their lives and ignoring these tyrants. Just how much enslavement will it take to get Americans to wake up? The masks are not for your good, and they never were. Just listen to Fauci say it:

Mask propaganda and the third wave are the newest brainwashing ideals being pushed by mainstream media. But what if it’s more sinister than we could imagine?

Are Face Masks & COVID Rituals Occultist Symbols For Submission?

We should all be aware by now that this is a spiritual battle for your mind. Look around.  You’re surrounded by propaganda, and if you can’t remove your cognitive biases for just a moment to realize it, you are going to have a hard time in the upcoming months. Be aware, but prepare.

This is all by design, and once you realize the government is nothing more than theater to distract you from what the Federal Reserve is doing, you will be able to see how to prepare and be ready for what’s coming. Never succumb to fear,  but you need to know what’s happening.  You need to open your eyes ad be aware of the global take over so you can prepare to the best of your ability. These psychopaths feed on fear, so instead of being afraid, learn, grown, become self-reliant, and store food and water. 

Greg Mannarino: It’s Critical To Understand That The Goal Is “Full Control By The Federal Reserve”

It’s All Been Planned: Prepare For The Great Reset

None of this is ending anytime soon because there are not enough people who see the truth. Once people wake up to what’s happening, we can begin to work together to create a better world without this master-slave relationship we all have with the current ruling class puppets doing the bidding of the Federal Reserve.

authoritarian civil unrest Constitution Donald Trump federal governemnt Headline News human rights Intelwars militarized police no going back Police police agencies Police State Politics power solution subvert rights tenth amendment violations

The Federal Coup to Overthrow the States and Nix the 10th Amendment Is Underway

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute.

I don’t need invitations by the state, state mayors, or state governors, to do our job. We’re going to do that, whether they like us there or not.”—Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf’s defense of the Trump Administration’s deployment of militarized federal police to address civil unrest in the states

This is a wake-up call.

What is unfolding before our very eyes—with police agencies defying local governments in order to tap into the power of federal militarized troops in order to put down domestic unrest—could very quickly snowball into an act of aggression against the states, a coup by armed, militarized agents of the federal government.

At a minimum, this is an attack on the Tenth Amendment, which affirms the sovereignty of the states and the citizenry, and the right of the states to stand as a bulwark against overreach and power grabs by the federal government.

If you’re still deluding yourself into believing that this thinly-veiled exercise in martial law is anything other than an attempt to bulldoze what remains of the Constitution and reinforce the iron-fisted rule of the police state, you need to stop drinking the Kool-Aid.

This is no longer about partisan politics or civil unrest or even authoritarian impulses.

This is a turning point.

Unless we take back the reins—and soon—looking back on this time years from now, historians may well point to the events of 2020 as the death blow to America’s short-lived experiment in self-government.

The government’s recent actions in Portland, Oregon—when unidentified federal agents (believed to be border police, ICE and DHS agents), wearing military fatigues with patches that just say “Police” and sporting all kinds of weapons, descended uninvited on the city in unmarked vehicles, snatching protesters off the streets and detaining them without formally arresting them or offering any explanation of why they’re being held—is just a foretaste of what’s to come.

One of those detainees was a 53-year-old disabled Navy veteran who was in downtown Portland during the protests but not a participant. Concerned about the tactics being used by government agents who had taken an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution, Christopher David tried to speak the “secret” police. Almost immediately, he was assaulted by federal agents, beaten with batons and pepper-sprayed.

Another peaceful protester was reportedly shot in the head with an impact weapon by this federal goon squad.

The Trump Administration has already announced its plans to deploy these border patrol agents to other cities across the country (Chicago is supposedly next) in an apparent bid to put down civil unrest. Yet the overriding concerns by state and local government officials to Trump’s plans suggest that weaponizing the DHS as an occupying army will only provoke more violence and unrest.

We’ve been set up.

Under the guise of protecting federal properties against civil unrest, the Trump Administration has formed a task force of secret agents who look, dress and act like military stormtroopers on a raid and have been empowered to roam cities in unmarked vehicles, snatching citizens off the streets, whether or not they’ve been engaged in illegal activities.

As the Guardian reports, “The incidents being described sound eerily reminiscent of the CIA’s post-9/11 rendition program under George W Bush, where intelligence agents would roll up in unmarked vans in foreign countries, blindfold terrorism suspects (many of whom turned to be innocent) and kidnap them without explanation. Only instead of occurring on the streets of Italy or the Middle East, it’s happening in downtown Portland.”

The so-called racial justice activists who have made looting, violence, vandalism and intimidation tactics the hallmarks of their protests have played right into the government’s hands

They have delivered all of us into the police state’s hands.

There’s a reason Trump has tapped the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for this dirty business: these agencies are notorious for their lawlessness, routinely sidestepping the Constitution and trampling on the rights of anyone who gets in their way, including legal citizens.

Indeed, it was only a matter of time before these roving bands of border patrol agents began flexing their muscles far beyond the nation’s borders and exercising their right to disregard the Constitution at every turn.

Except these border patrol cops aren’t just disregarding the Constitution.

They’re trampling all over the Constitution, especially the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits the government from carrying out egregious warrantless searches and seizures without probable cause.

As part of the government’s so-called crackdown on illegal immigration, drugs and trafficking, its border patrol cops have been expanding their reach, roaming further afield and subjecting greater numbers of Americans to warrantless searches, ID checkpoints, transportation checks, and even surveillance on private property far beyond the boundaries of the borderlands.

That so-called border, once a thin borderline, has become an ever-thickening band spreading deeper and deeper inside the country.

Now, with this latest salvo by the Trump administration in its so-called crackdown on rioting and civil unrest, America itself is about to become a Constitution-free zone where freedom is off-limits and government agents have all the power and “we the people” have none.

The Customs and Border Protection (CBP), with its more than 60,000 employees, supplemented by the National Guard and the U.S. military, is an arm of the Department of Homeland Security, a national police force imbued with all the brutality, ineptitude and corruption such a role implies.

As journalist Todd Miller explains:

In these vast domains, Homeland Security authorities can institute roving patrols with broad, extra-constitutional powers backed by national security, immigration enforcement and drug interdiction mandates. There, the Border Patrol can set up traffic checkpoints and fly surveillance drones overhead with high-powered cameras and radar that can track your movements. Within twenty-five miles of the international boundary, CBP agents can enter a person’s private property without a warrant.

Just about every nefarious deed, tactic or thuggish policy advanced by the government today can be traced back to the DHS, its police state mindset, and the billions of dollars it distributes to local police agencies in the form of grants to transform them into extensions of the military.

As Miller points out, the government has turned the nation’s expanding border regions into “a ripe place to experiment with tearing apart the Constitution, a place where not just undocumented border-crossers, but millions of borderland residents have become the targets of continual surveillance.”

In much the same way that police across the country have been schooled in the art of sidestepping the Constitution, border cops have also been drilled in the art of “anything goes” in the name of national security.

In fact, according to FOIA documents shared with The Interceptborder cops even have a checklist of “possible behaviors” that warrant overriding the Constitution and subjecting individuals—including American citizens—to stops, searches, seizures, interrogations and even arrests.

For instance, if you’re driving a vehicle that to a border cop looks unusual in some way, you can be stopped. If your passengers look dirty or unusual, you can be stopped. If you or your passengers avoid looking at a cop, you can be stopped. If you or your passengers look too long at a cop, you can be stopped.

If you’re anywhere near a border (near being within 100 miles of a border, or in a city, or on a bus, or at an airport), you can be stopped and asked to prove you’re legally allowed to be in the country. If you’re traveling on a public road that smugglers and other criminals may have traveled, you can be stopped.

If you’re not driving in the same direction as other cars, you can be stopped. If you appear to be avoiding a police checkpoint, you can be stopped. If your car appears to be weighed down, you can be stopped. If your vehicle is from out of town, wherever that might be, you can be stopped. If you’re driving a make of car that criminal-types have also driven, you can be stopped.

If your car appears to have been altered or modified, you can be stopped. If the cargo area in your vehicle is covered, you can be stopped.

If you’re driving during a time of day or night that border cops find suspicious, you can be stopped. If you’re driving when border cops are changing shifts, you can be stopped. If you’re driving in a motorcade or with another vehicle, you can be stopped. If your car appears dusty, you can be stopped.

If people with you are trying to avoid being seen, or exhibiting “unusual” behavior, you can be stopped. If you slow down after seeing a cop, you can be stopped.

In Portland, which is 400 miles from the border, protesters didn’t even have to be near federal buildings to be targeted. Some claimed to be targeted for simply wearing black clothing in the area of the demonstration.

Are you starting to get the picture yet?

This was never about illegal aliens and border crossings at all. It’s been a test to see how far “we the people” will allow the government to push the limits of the Constitution.

We’ve been failing this particular test for a long time now.

It was 1798 when Americans, their fears stoked by rumblings of a Quasi-War with France, failed to protest the Alien and Sedition Acts, which criminalized anti-government speech, empowered the government to deport “dangerous” non-citizens and made it harder for immigrants to vote.

During the Civil War, Americans went along when Abraham Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus (the right to a speedy trial) and authorized government officials to spy on Americans’ mail.

During World War I, Americans took it in stride when  President Woodrow Wilson and Congress adopted the Espionage and Sedition Acts, which made it a crime to interfere with the war effort and criminalized any speech critical of war.

By World War II, Americans were marching in lockstep with the government’s expanding war powers to imprison Japanese-American citizens in detainment camps, censor mail, and lay the groundwork for the future surveillance state.

Fast-forward to the Cold War’s Red Scares, the McCarthy era’s hearings on un-American activities, and the government’s surveillance of Civil Rights activists such as Martin Luther King Jr.—all done in the name of national security.

By the time 9/11 rolled around, all George W. Bush had to do was claim the country was being invaded by terrorists, and the government was given greater powers to spy, search, detain and arrest American citizens in order to keep America safe.

The terrorist invasion never really happened, but the government kept its newly acquired police powers made possible by the nefarious USA Patriot Act.

Barack Obama continued Bush’s trend of undermining the Constitution, going so far as to give the military the power to strip Americans of their constitutional rights, label them extremists, and detain them indefinitely without trialall in the name of keeping America safe.

Despite the fact that the breadth of the military’s power to detain American citizens violates not only U.S. law and the Constitution but also international laws, the government has refused to relinquish its detention powers made possible by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Then Donald Trump took office, claiming the country was being invaded by dangerous immigrants and insisting that the only way to keep America safe was to build an expensive border wall, expand the reach of border patrol, and empower the military to “assist” with border control.

That so-called immigration crisis has now morphed into multiple crises (domestic extremism, the COVID-19 pandemic, race wars, civil unrest, etc.) that the government is eager to use in order to expand its powers.

Yet as we’ve learned the hard way, once the government acquires—and uses—additional powers (to spy on its citizens, to carry out surveillance, to transform its police forces into extensions of the police, to seize taxpayer funds, to wage endless wars, to censor and silence dissidents, to identify potential troublemakers, to detain citizens without due process), it does not voluntarily relinquish them

This is the slippery slope on which we’ve been traveling for far too long.

As Yale historian Timothy Snyder explains, “This is a classic way that violence happens in authoritarian regimes, whether it’s Franco’s Spain or whether it’s the Russian Empire. The people who are getting used to committing violence on the border are then brought in to commit violence against people in the interior.

Sure, it’s the Trump administration calling the shots right now, but it’s government agents armed with totalitarian powers and beholden to the bureaucratic Deep State who are carrying out these orders in defiance of the U.S. Constitution and all it represents.

Whether it’s Trump or Biden or someone else altogether, this year or a dozen years from now, the damage has been done: as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we have allowed the president to acquire dictatorial powers that can be unleashed at any moment.

There’s a reason the Trump administration is consulting with John Yoo, the Bush-era attorney notorious for justifying waterboarding torture tactics against detainees. They’re not looking to understand how to follow the law and abide by the Constitution. Rather, they’re desperately seeking ways to thwart the Constitution.

As Harvard constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe recognizes, “The dictatorial hunger for power is insatiable.

This is how it begins.

This is how it always begins.

Don’t be fooled into thinking any of this will change when the next election rolls around.

EDITOR’S NOTE: While most are distracted with which puppet they will vote for when the international banking cartel has already chosen, tyranny has descended on Americans, and even most “patriots” are cheering the authoritarianism. One way or another, all ruling classes will eventually become tyrannical. History repeats itself, and we have so far, been too stuipd to learn this.

Virus Unrest Turns Violent As Serbs Protest Being “Lied To For Political Ends”

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.

Social unrest has rocked Belgrade and other cities in Serbia this week in response to President Aleksandar Vucic’s reintroduction of government-curfews over surging coronavirus cases.

Serbian police fired tear gas and were dressed head to toe in riot gear, as demonstrators, mostly young people, assaulted police on Tuesday and Wednesday. The New York Times said the unrest was some of the first in Europe since the pandemic began – also indicating the severity of the unrest was worst since the rule of Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s.

Young Serbs quickly took the streets on Tuesday after Vucic announced Belgrade would be placed under a new order restricting movement in the region for three days to mitigate the spread of the second coronavirus wave. Many were infuriated by the re-implementation of the lockdown after coming out of some of the strictest ones in Europe to allow the general election last week.
“Serbia protests over coronavirus pandemic management turn violent.” Serbia protests over coronavirus pandemic management turn violent.

“We don’t mind staying home for another three days — that wasn’t the problem,” said Dragana Grncarski, 45, who has been protesting this week.

“However, they’re playing with our minds and with the truth,” Grncarski added. “When it suits them to do elections, there is no corona. They organized football matches and tennis matches, and because of that we have a situation where the hospitals are full.”

“Citizens have been constantly deceived and lied to for political ends,” said Tena Prelec, a political expert on Southeast Europe at the University of Oxford.

Jelena Vasiljevic, an expert on Balkan unrest at the University of Belgrade, said the expiration of the lockdowns for election purposes – then re-implementation of the lockdowns took the population “from one extreme to another.” 

Vasiljevic said the “excessive use of force” by the government to combat rioters hasn’t been seen since the days of “Milosevic in 1996 or 1997.” Milosevic led Serbia through the Balkan Wars and was later charged for war crimes.

Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin was convinced the demonstration against the re-implementation of the lockdowns in Belgrade and other cities were “carefully planned” – and aimed at igniting a civil war. 

“We have terrible violence on the streets, we have an attempt at a coup, we have an attempt to seize power by force and an attempt to provoke a civil war in Serbia. It cannot be described and explained differently. There is no reason, there is no reason to set fire to the Assembly, to set fire to the City Hall in Novi Sad, to attack the police, to beat people on the streets, to endanger life and to endanger the property of Serbian citizens ,” said Vulin, a guest on the show Novo jutro on TV Pink, was asked to comment on the events in the previous two evenings.

Russian Times caught some of the unrest on video earlier this week. Young Serbs can be seen clashing with riot police in front of government buildings.

“There were indications of foreign involvement, and some criminal faces were there, too,” Vucic said on Wednesday afternoon. He added that virus cases will likely flare-up because of the mass unrest.

“I wonder who will be responsible for the fact that hundreds and thousands of people became infected yesterday and the day before yesterday,” he said

Vucic has also backtracked on the curfew after several days of unrest –  instead, the government is expected to impose restrictions on public spaces and possibly limit business hours. There’s also talk of fining people for not wearing masks.

When it comes to outside forces meddling in Serb domestic affairs, Russia came out on Thursday, denying it had any involvement.

Anger anti government extremists Antifa better off without politicians Boogaloo Dissenters Domestic terrorist duty excessive taxation Government Headline News human rights Intelwars MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX mobs oppression rebellion rights rights aren't gifts from government speak up stand up suppression Theft Truth tyranny Violence War William Barr

America’s Revolutionary Founders Would Be Anti-Government Extremists Today

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute. 

“It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”—Thomas Paine

“When the government violates the people’s rights, insurrection is, for the people and for each portion of the people, the most sacred of the rights and the most indispensable of duties.”—Marquis De Lafayette

Had the Declaration of Independence been written today, it would have rendered its signers extremists or terrorists, resulting in them being placed on a government watch list, targeted for surveillance of their activities and correspondence, and potentially arrested, held indefinitely, stripped of their rights and labeled enemy combatants.

This is no longer the stuff of speculation and warning.

In fact, Attorney General William Barr recently announced plans to target, track and surveil “anti-government extremists” and preemptively nip in the bud any “threats” to public safety and the rule of law.

It doesn’t matter that the stated purpose of Barr’s anti-government extremist task force is to investigate dissidents on the far right (the “boogaloo” movement) and far left (Antifa, a loosely organized anti-fascist group) who have been accused of instigating violence and disrupting peaceful protests.

Boogaloo and Antifa have given the government the perfect excuse for declaring war (with all that entails: surveillance, threat assessments, pre-crime, etc.) against so-called anti-government extremists.

Without a doubt, America’s revolutionary founders would have been at the top of Barr’s list.

After all, the people who fomented the American Revolution spoke out at rallies, distributed critical pamphlets, wrote scathing editorials, and took to the streets in protest. They were rebelling against a government they saw as being excessive in its taxation and spending. For their efforts, they were demonized and painted as an angry mob, extremists akin to terrorists, by the ruler of the day, King George III.

Of course, it doesn’t take much to be considered an anti-government extremist (a.k.a. domestic terrorist) today.

If you believe in and exercise your rights under the Constitution (namely, your right to speak freely, worship freely, associate with like-minded individuals who share your political views, criticize the government, own a weapon, demand a warrant before being questioned or searched by the police, or any other activity viewed as potentially anti-government, racist, bigoted, anarchic or sovereign), you’re at the top of the government’s terrorism watch list.

Indeed, under Barr’s new task force, I and every other individual today who dares to speak truth to power could also be targeted for surveillance, because what we’re really dealing with is a government that wants to suppress dangerous words—words about its warring empire, words about its land grabs, words about its militarized police, words about its killing, its poisoning, and its corruption—in order to keep its lies going.

This is how the government plans to snuff out any attempts by “we the people” to stand up to its tyranny: under the pretext of rooting out violent extremists, the government’s anti-extremism program will, in many cases, be utilized to render otherwise lawful, nonviolent activities as potentially extremist.

The danger is real.

Keep in mind that the government agencies involved in ferreting out American “extremists” will carry out their objectives—to identify and deter potential extremists—in concert with fusion centers, data collection agencies, behavioral scientists, corporations, social media, and community organizers and by relying on cutting-edge technology for surveillance, facial recognition, predictive policing, biometrics, and behavioral epigenetics (in which life experiences alter one’s genetic makeup).

This is pre-crime on an ideological scale and it’s been a long time coming.

For example, in 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released two reports, one on “Rightwing Extremism,” which broadly defines rightwing extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” and one on “Leftwing Extremism,” which labeled environmental and animal rights activist groups as extremists

Incredibly, both reports use the words terrorist and extremist interchangeably

That same year, the DHS launched Operation Vigilant Eagle, which calls for surveillance of military veterans returning from Iraq, Afghanistan and other far-flung places, characterizing them as extremists and potential domestic terrorist threats because they may be “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”

These reports indicate that for the government, anyone seen as opposing the government—whether they’re Left, Right, or somewhere in between—can be labeled an extremist.

Fast forward a few years, and you have the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which Congress has continually re-upped, that allows the military to take you out of your home, lock you up with no access to friends, family or the courts if you’re seen as an extremist.

Now connect the dots, from the 2009 Extremism reports to the NDAA, the National Security Agency’s far-reaching surveillance networks, and fusion centers that collect and share surveillance data between local, state and federal police agencies

Add in tens of thousands of armed, surveillance drones that are beginning to blanket American skies, facial recognition technology that will identify and track you wherever you go and whatever you do. And then to complete the circle, toss in the real-time crime centers being deployed in cities across the country, which will be attempting to “predict” crimes and identify criminals before they happen based on widespread surveillance, complex mathematical algorithms, and prognostication programs.

Hopefully, you’re getting the picture, which is how easy it is for the government to identify, label, and target individuals as “extremists.”

And just like that, we’ve come full circle.

Imagine living in a country where armed soldiers crash through doors to arrest and imprison citizens merely for criticizing government officials. Imagine that in this very same country, you’re watched all the time and if you look even a little bit suspicious, the police stop and frisk you or pull you over to search you on the off chance you’re doing something illegal.

Keep in mind that if you have a firearm of any kind (or anything that resembled a firearm) while in this country, it may get you arrested and, in some circumstances, shot by police.

If you’re thinking this sounds like America today, you wouldn’t be far wrong.

However, the scenario described above took place more than 200 years ago, when American colonists suffered under Great Britain’s version of an early police state. It was only when the colonists finally got fed up with being silenced, censored, searched, frisked, threatened, and arrested that they finally revolted against the tyrant’s fetters

No document better states their grievances than the Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson.

A document seething with outrage over a government which had betrayed its citizens, the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, by 56 men who laid everything on the line, pledged it all—“our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor”—because they believed in a radical idea: that all people are created to be free.

Labeled traitors, these men were charged with treason, a crime punishable by death. For some, their acts of rebellion would cost them their homes and their fortunes. For others, it would be the ultimate price—their lives.

Yet even knowing the heavy price they might have to pay, these men dared to speak up when silence could not be tolerated.

Read the Declaration of Independence again, and ask yourself if the list of complaints tallied by Jefferson don’t bear a startling resemblance to the abuses “we the people” are suffering at the hands of the American police state.

If you find the purple prose used by the Founders hard to decipher, here’s my translation of what the Declaration of Independence would look and sound like if it were written in the modern vernacular:

There comes a time when a populace must stand united and say “enough is enough” to the government’s abuses, even if it means getting rid of the political parties in power. Believing that “we the people” have a natural and divine right to direct our own lives, here are truths about the power of the people and how we arrived at the decision to sever our ties to the government:

All people are created equal. All people possess certain innate rights that no government or agency or individual can take away from them. Among these are the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. The government’s job is to protect the people’s innate rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. The government’s power comes from the will of the people.

Whenever any government abuses its power, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish that government and replace it with a new government that will respect and protect the rights of the people. It is not wise to get rid of a government for minor transgressions. In fact, as history has shown, people resist change and are inclined to suffer all manner of abuses to which they have become accustomed. However, when the people have been subjected to repeated abuses and power grabs, carried out with the purpose of establishing a tyrannical government, people have a right and duty to do away with that tyrannical Government and to replace it with a new government that will protect and preserve their innate rights for their future wellbeing.

This is exactly the state of affairs we are suffering under right now, which is why it is necessary that we change this imperial system of government. The history of the present Imperial Government is a history of repeated abuses and power grabs, carried out with the intention of establishing absolute Tyranny over the country.

To prove this, consider the following:

The government has, through its own negligence and arrogance, refused to adopt urgent and necessary laws for the good of the people. The government has threatened to hold up critical laws unless the people agree to relinquish their right to be fully represented in the Legislature.

In order to expand its power and bring about compliance with its dictates, the government has made it nearly impossible for the people to make their views and needs heard by their representatives. The government has repeatedly suppressed protests arising in response to its actions.

The government has obstructed justice by refusing to appoint judges who respect the Constitution and has instead made the Courts march in lockstep with the government’s dictates.

The government has allowed its agents to harass the people, steal from them, jail them and even execute them. The government has directed militarized government agents—a.k.a., a standing army—to police domestic affairs in peacetime. The government has turned the country into a militarized police state.

The government has conspired to undermine the rule of law and the Constitution in order to expand its own powers.

The government has allowed its militarized police to invade our homes and inflict violence on homeowners. The government has failed to hold its agents accountable for wrongdoing and murder under the guise of “qualified immunity.”

The government has jeopardized our international trade agreements. The government has overtaxed us without our permission.

The government has denied us due process and the right to a fair trial. The government has engaged in extraordinary rendition. The government has continued to expand its military empire in collusion with its corporate partners-in-crime and occupy foreign nations.

The government has eroded fundamental legal protections and destabilized the structure of government. The government has not only declared its federal powers superior to those of the states but has also asserted its sovereign power over the rights of “we the people.”

The government has ceased to protect the people and instead waged domestic war against the people. The government has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, and destroyed the lives of the people.

The government has employed private contractors and mercenaries to carry out acts of death, desolation and tyranny against other nations, totally unworthy of a civilized nation. The government through its political propaganda has pitted its citizens against each other. The government has stirred up civil unrest and laid the groundwork for martial law.

Repeatedly, we have asked the government to cease its abuses. Each time, the government has responded with more abuse.

An Imperial Ruler who acts like a tyrant is not fit to govern a free people.

We have repeatedly sounded the alarm to our fellow citizens about the government’s abuses. We have warned them about the government’s power grabs. We have appealed to their sense of justice. We have reminded them of our common bonds. They have rejected our plea for justice and brotherhood. Thus, our fellow citizens are equally at fault for the injustices being carried out by the government.

Thus, for the reasons mentioned above, we the people of the united States of America declare ourselves free from the chains of an abusive government. Relying on the Creator’s protection, we pledge to stand by this Declaration of Independence with our lives, our fortunes and our honor.

See what I mean? The abuses meted out by an imperial government and endured by the American people have not ended. They have merely evolved.

Two hundred and forty-four years after a group of anti-government extremists declared their independence from tyranny, the American people have once again managed to work their way back under the tyrant’s thumb.

“We the people” are still being robbed blind by a government of thieves. We are still being taken advantage of by a government of scoundrels, idiots, and monsters. We are still being locked up by a government of greedy jailers. We are still being spied on by a government of Peeping Toms. We are still being ravaged by a government of ruffians, rapists, and killers.

We are still being forced to surrender our freedoms—and those of our children—to a government of extortionists, money launderers, and corporate pirates. And we are still being held at gunpoint by a government of soldiers: a standing army in the form of a militarized police.

The bipartisan coup that laid siege to our nation did not happen overnight. It snuck in under our radar, hiding behind the guise of national security, the war on drugs, the war on terror, the war on immigration, political correctness, hate crimes and a host of other official-sounding programs aimed at expanding the government’s power at the expense of individual freedoms.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the building blocks for the bleak future we’re just now getting a foretaste of—police shootings of unarmed citizens, profit-driven prisons, weapons of compliance, a wall-to-wall surveillance state, pre-crime programs, a suspect society, school-to-prison pipelines, militarized police, overcriminalization, SWAT team raids, endless wars, etc.—were put in place by government officials we trusted to look out for our best interests and by American citizens who failed to heed James Madison’s warning to “take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties.”

For too long now, we have suffered the injustices of a government that has no regard for our rights or our humanity.

We’ve suffered in silence for too long.

Frankly, what this country desperately needs is more anti-government extremists willing to take the government to task for its excesses, abuses and power grabs that fly in the face of every principle for which America’s founders risked their lives.

Americans chaos Coronavirus COVID-19 economic crash Emergency Preparedness fears wane food shortage Gold Headline News human rights Intelwars lead news cycle order out of chaos plandemic Preparedness problems Recession scamdemic Silver take charge of your life United States Virus

Interest In Coronavirus Fear Is Waning

The public’s interest in the coronavirus is waning.  Because fear is necessary to get people on board with their enslavement, now is the time to not let your guard down when it comes to another crisis.

One of the big problems in the United States is the growing number of Americans who are tiring of the hype over the coronavirus says Statista’s Willem Roper. He suggests, that based on recent data, there may be a growing indifference amid a weariness of misinformation and a news cycle dominated by the virus. And that’s a “concern.”

In a new survey from the Pew Research Center, nearly 40 percent of U.S. adults in June say the outbreak has been exaggerated – an almost 10 percent increase since April. In terms of political party, respondents who identified as Republican or leaning Republican had the largest increase between April and June, going from 47 percent to 63 percent believing the outbreak has been exaggerated.

In March and April, Pew recorded that a majority of Americans were closely following updated news on COVID-19 and how it was spreading locally, nationally, and globally, according to a report by ZeroHedge. Since then, new surveys show Americans’ interest has quickly dissipated, going from 46 percent in May to just 39 percent of U.S. adults saying they’re closely following COVID-19 news in June.

This doesn’t mean the panic forced on the public is ending just yet.  The media is still actively trying to gin up fear and supply reasons for states to lock people down again violating their basic human rights. However, when interest in a subject wanes, and the goal is over totalitarianism, it’s likely there will be another crisis to take the place of the COVID-19 scam.

Stay alert and vigilant, but don’t be fearful. Have a few types of metals on hand (gold, silver, and lead) and make sure your preps are in order.  The elites have already shown that a “good crisis will not go to waste” and we’ve seen them follow through on that.

Now is a good time to make sure you’ve got at least a little extra food because the media seems intent upon a food shortage.  It also bears importance to know that they are also ginning up fear of a virus coming from pigs raised for meat, so that could play into this as well.  It’s still difficult to say exactly what the next crisis will be, but they have been waving the food shortage flag for several weeks now.

act with force anything goes Central Bank COVID-19 creation of money fdic Federal Reserve Food Gold Government Great Depression Headline News human rights Intelwars monopolies new currency Riots Strikes trusts

CONFLICT OF INTEREST: Gold Soaring – WALL STREET ACCUMULATION!

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

In the old days, companies were allowed to fail even if a health crisis like COVID-19 forced WIDESPREAD SHUTDOWNS, quarantines, and business closures mandated by the government. The PURE CAPITALISM theory popularized in the European Industrial Revolution was such that ANYTHING GOES, and it produced the first class of robber barons.

These business magnates created trusts, combinations, and monopolies. They worked their employees like slaves, without regard to human rights or common sense. People would work 12-hour shifts without food and breaks, in many cases LOCKED IN THEIR OFFICE by design.

Riots and strikes WERE COMMON, as that was the way worker unions would LEVERAGE THEIR POWER over the factory owners. If one business failed, another would replace it, and that happened often. Bankruptcies and defaults were extremely frequent and would result in immediate foreclosures.

In the Great Depression, for example, 4,000 banks WENT UNDER. Because of that trauma, the FDIC was formed and many social safety nets were put in place.

The criticism towards the Federal Reserve system was that IT DID NOTHING, or NOT ENOUGH to assist in cushioning the blow in 1929, but the PURE CAPITALISTS argue that the lessons learned were so valuable that the period that came after was the most prosperous in American history thanks to the PAINFUL TAKEAWAYS of the 1930s.

No matter where you happen to sit on this spectrum between limited and unlimited government, the facts are that there’s a STRONG TREND in place in 2020 and it is that of MOTHER GOOSE, a government and a central bank, that act WITH FORCE to make investors, business owners, and everyday employees whole, all of which is paid for with NEW CURRENCY created by the Federal Reserve System or borrowed into existence by Washington. It’s disgusting if you ask me.

As you can see, the BALANCE SHEETS of Western societies have gone TO THE EXTREME of the spectrum.

There’s no precedence to this, so NO ONE, including the very bankers in charge, can engage in a FACTUAL ANALYSIS of how this impacts economies. They’re experimenting, and as long as disaster doesn’t strike, they go on in the same direction.

The best way to describe this would be like a racecar driver who is attempting to TAKE A CORNER at the highest speed possible. At first, he thinks that he has to use the gas as much as possible, but when he sees that’s causing the car to spiral, he begins to change his mind and brakes hard before the corner, turns the steering wheel, and slowly accelerates. Next, he tries to brake as late as possible, BETTERING HIS TIMES in the process each and every lap. His new system seems to be working perfectly. He becomes confident that he has found the magic formula, so the following lap, he waits too long and BRAKES AS HARD AS HE CAN but to no avail. The car goes into the grass before hitting the pile of tires placed there to cushion blows.

His best lap, where he is MOST EXHILARATED, is the one right before the crash that takes him OUT OF THE GAME.

Imagine being a spectator or a sports bettor watching the progress of this professional. Would you bet against him as he keeps making BETTER LAPS each and every time? Not many would.

Who would be concerned? Someone that has been in the driver’s seat and has seen how these things end. The point is that retail traders believe these stocks can’t go down, while seasoned investors know this party will soon be raided by police, metaphorically speaking.

As you can see, the REAL ECONOMY is now beginning to reveal its face to us!

If you’re like me, you understand that a good car and a good driver can last many laps without a mechanical error appearing or a loss of concentration on the part of the driver, but NO ONE’S PERFECT and no system is always effective.

Every fiat currency system has eventually failed, and this one HAS PEAKED.

better world Bitcoin chains are invisible control Cryptocurrency Evil Force freedom Gold Government Headline News human rights Humanity Illusions Intelwars leave the system Max Ian mental slavery power Silver SLAVERY spiritual battle system The Matrix voluntaryism wake up

Max Igan: “Most People Have NO IDEA” What’s Happening Right Now, The Solution Is Simple

As these crises around the globe increase and we are supposed to be focusing on fear, more and more people ask the question “what is YOUR solution.” My solution is simple and it’s the one I’ve always suggested: wake up, realize no one has power over you, and leave the system.

“The truth is powerful, and can only be suppressed for so long, and then the truth gets out,” says Max Igan. As I’ve said, it’s a war for your mind (your soul, your spirit etc.) and who gets power over it.  Igan, who is a researcher and film creator has been warning of the control structures on the planet for several years now. Once you figure out the system is simply about enslavement you will take every step to leave it behind.

The solution is also literally that simple. No other human (including those with badges or who were voted for) has any rights you don’t have, so it’s time to realize that and stand in your own power. That’s the truth, and “when the truth gets out, a power is created that is greater than the power of guns and the money that a government possesses,” says Igan. “People are waking up to the reality of what government really is…at least they are waking up to the fact that they’ve been played.” We are on a mission to free mankind from “the clutches of this…slavery system that we’re all subject to.”

“And all the people that are looking for solutions or looking for a way out of this system…all the people that keep demanding someone supply them with an answer. they need to look a little deeper and realize that they are the answer and that they are not seeing this because very often, they are missing a basic understanding, that basic knowledge that this is a spiritual battle more than anything.”

And why does everyone seem to need or want a solution from someone else anyway? Aren’t you a human too? Can’t you think about these things? I get it. Being stuck in the system “the Matrix” if you will, makes it tough to escape, but once you realize that you can is the first step. Then once you do and you’re free, the system will begin to deteriorate.

I’m not the only person suggesting this. Max Igan understands it as well:

The only thing that holds the system up is our willingness to comply with all of this rubbish. Many have been saying the only way out is to wake up and stop complying.  It’s all an illusion that erodes when we realize we are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the ones who need to break our own chains that keep us dependent on the violence and tyranny of governments and ruling classes.  Luckily, the technology is there to at least take a small step.

I have suggested cutting ties with the most oppression slavery system, the central banks, by owning gold, silver, or cryptocurrency, but people often shut down the second they have to apply any critical thinking on their own, especially when it comes to cryptocurrency (which not the same as a centralized digital currency per se). Hopefully, this will help you understand if you have any questions:

I’m not suggesting Bitcoin as a “get rich scheme,” but as a way to leave the system. It’s not good or bad, it’s simply a new way of conducting transactions outside the control and enslavement of the central banks, and that’s why they hate it so much.  If you don’t want any crypto, don’t get any. It isn’t that difficult of a concept. But it can be used in beneficial ways outside central banking, such as to buy physical gold. So it has its place for some people outside the centralized banking system.

The most important thing to realize is that any solution can found within you.  Wake up to the illusion of government and control and realize that this spiritual battle will only end when you say it does. Society and the system itself rests on the hopee you never realize how powerful you actually are.

What good is a lifetime politician, that’s been a politician for 40 years, that’s made all this money off of taxpayer money (theft) and insider investing…what good are they if we realize we can create a better world without them? It renders them useless. Now, what good are the people that are behind the scenes, pulling the strings on those types of puppets, and we don’t even know who they are, and they hide in the shadows, what good are they? NONE! And that’s why there’s a vested interest in censorship and control of any information that uplifts and changes the thought patterns of too many people.” –Jake Duecy

Censorship certain narrative conquer divide Dr. Rashid Buttar enslavement facts freethinkers George Orwell Headline News human rights Humanity Intelwars New World Order political bias propaganda rule Truth vaccines

Dr. Rashid Buttar: “They Are Trying To Divide People!”

Dr. Rashid Buttar, YouTube screenshot

Dr. Rashid Buttar, who has come out against the totalitarian dictates over the economy in response to the coronavirus plandemic, says the plan now, is to divide the population so we don’t unite together to tackle the problem. A global psychological operation is taking place right now and many are still falling for it.

Buttar has long questioned the elitists and the ruling class who control YouTube and other platforms for the censorship that’s running rampant today. “Why would anybody censor facts and truth?” asks Buttar.  Well, the truth is they need a certain narrative to be parrotted and repeated so we remain under the control of rulers. Freethinkers are impossible to enslave.

“Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.”? Robert A. Heinlein 

“I’ll give you a couple of reasons,” Dr. Buttar says as to why information about the damages done by vaccines are being censored. “This is not democratic or republican. This is bipartisan,” the doctor says. Clearly, we are being divided by politics, ethnicity, culture, gender, you name it, they are dividing us so we never unite against the real enemy: the ruling class puppets and the elitists. They are desperately trying to keep their system of control in place.

Facebook Ramps Up Coronavirus Censorship: Blocking Posts About COVID-19

Buttar begins by speaking to the truth about viruses and how they have actually helped human evolution.

“The social distancing has nothing to do with the virus…social distancing has no scientific basis whatsoever…HOWEVER, there is a significant basis for social distancing when it comes to freedom of speech, which then gives you the freedom to assemble. The military technology has been there for 15 years, where you can actually using satellites, track soldiers. If it’s within that 5 foot than, it’s hard to determine if it’s two people, or three people, or four people. I think the social distancing is part of that ‘divide and conquer.’

They’ve divided us based on ethnicity, based on culture, based on religion, based upon belief system, based upon ideology, based upon political party. Now they are trying to come into our homes [HR 6666]...take people our of the house to quarantine them.

They are trying to divide people.They’re trying to divide us. So the social distancing is all about dividing us, seperating us, creating us more into an isolated component.”Dr. Rashid Buttar

The further we separate the more psychological and emotional damage is done to human beings.  Our stress levels will go up creating all sorts of inflammatory health problems, and year people are still blaming the other people who don’t vote like they do.

“That’s what they’re counting on, is people to be scared of the social shaming,” says Dr. Buttar about anyone who speaks up about the truth. “I’d much rather be socially shamed, and still have future of mankind,” Buttar adds.

Humanity needs more free thinkers, not those who follow the crowd.

“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” -George Orwell

1884 acquiescing to power Aldous Huxley Books boot on the human face Censorship control democracy forever free speech freedom George Orwell Government Headline News human dignity human rights Humanity Intelwars liberty LIES power propaganda totalitarian Voting

Orwell & Huxley’s WARNINGS To The World

As George Orwell neared his death, he made one final warning to planet Earth and every human on it. Scarily, we are seeing human beings demand their own enslavement and that of others which was exactly what Orwell said would happen.

The woman interviewing Orwell from his death bed asked if he demonstrated that he had the ability to face some of these unpleasant facts. Orwell replied:

“I think that allowing for the book being after all a parody, something like 1984 could, actually happen. This is the direction the world is going in at the present time. In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self basement. The sex instinct will be irradiated. We shall abolish the orgasm. There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the party (the government/ruling class) but always there will be the intoxication of power.

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot, stamping on a human face. Forever.”

As David Icke said, “Stop acquiescing to power.”

David Icke To LEOs & Military: “Look Your Children In The Eye” & Tell Them YOU Enforced Tyranny

Orwell’s eerie warning is coming to fruition right before our eyes and even “freedom-loving” Americans are allowing it, even cheering for it to happen. “The moral to be drawn from this dangerous situation is a simple one. Don’t let it happen. It depends on YOU,” Orwell said.

Yet we have people in the “land of the free” calling for martial law and the use of violence to put down dissent. We have violent people stealing, looting, and rioting to protest police violence.  We see people defend the military for firing on innocent people on their own porch.  We have people demanding free speech be eliminated because they don’t like what’s being said. We have people get outraged the second they read something that disagrees with the brainwashed bias in their mind (cognitive dissonance.) And we have a government and military all too ready to go to war with the American people in order to maintain control and eliminate every single right all humans are born with to usher in the New World Order. This is absolutely absurd, but it’s happening right before our eyes.

Aldous Huxley also tried to warn humanity of their fate:

 

Orwell and Huxley both said all basic human rights will be eliminated and slavery will prevail in one way or another. Mostly because humans cannot fathom functioning without a master, or ruler commanding them thanks to the brainwashing that has been highly effective. 

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you mad.” -Aldous Huxley

The solution is to realize what has been done to us.  We all need to wake up to the damage of giving anyone power over anyone else. Giving other humans power over other humans has never worked out well for those being controlled, and democracy has been no salvation. The argument over how big a government should be is one of “just how much slavery will the population tolerate.”

“So this is how liberty dies…with thunderous applause.”

choosing sides consent to be ruled division Headline News human rights individuals Intelwars Justice justification left vs right paradigm looting peace People police brutality Protection Rioting ruling class stand up two ideas unity Violence wrong

You Can Be Against Police Brutality & Looting and Rioting At The Same Time

It is possible for people to condemn all violence.  Just because someone says they don’t support the looting and rioting, does not mean they support police brutality. Just because someone says that the police shouldn’t kill people with qualified immunity, doesn’t mean they support looting and rioting.

The mainstream media and those who still are stuck in the left/right paradigm want you to choose a side. Police brutality, or looting. It is possible to side with neither at the same time because they are both wrong.  What a surprise! They need you to choose to stay divided instead of standing up together against all violence and all shows of violence.

“The state and its aggression, and the people the loot innocent businesses are not justified in their actions. It doesn’t even mean their both equal, it just means they’re both wrong and it’s easy to speak about both. It is a false choice, a false dichotomy to suggest otherwise,” says July. “Anybody that doesn’t have a brain the size of a coronavirus can actually hold two positions at the same time.”

“People only see what the hell they wanna see,” said Eric July in his recent video. “If you can’t properly identify what the issue is, right, you look at the symptom…and you have this view of what the symptom is, you diagnose it completely incorrectly. And because you diagnose it completely incorrectly, you can’t actually come to a solution.”

“What’s happening here…is you haven’t been paying attention,” July adds. Police brutality in all forms is wrong.  Violence committed against non-violent people is wrong no matter what kind of uniform you have on. It’s morally apprehensive and should not be tolerated. The same can go for the looters and rioters.  It’s wrong to destroy businesses and harm innocent people who have done nothing wrong.  It’s the same position.

But it gets more sticky for those who have chosen sides – either side.  There’s a solution to the looting and rioting, and we’ve seen it first hand. It wasn’t the police that protected a town in Idaho from violent thugs:

People are willing to stand up and protect each other against those who are committing violence and crimes against other small private businesses. But we aren’t standing together against the militarized police who brutalize people daily, not just when there are looting and rioting. Why do they get a pass? The cognitive dissonance by so many is hardly an excuse anymore. We all know committing acts of violence against non-violent people is wrong. It’s wrong when police do it. It’s worn when the militaries of the globe do it, and it’s wrong when looters do it.

Just hold a moral position. That’s it. If you start to allow some a pass on violence because of badges don’t be surprised when it’s you or your guns they come for next, because that’s the next step in all of this. Martial law to bring in a New World Order, and your total enslavement.

Larken Rose’s The Most Dangerous Superstition is an excellent resource for those who still think aggression against innocent people is conducive with a free society.  If you want to be free, you first have to free your mind, and realize not only what is going on around you, but who is taking your freedom from you.

The primary threat to freedom and justice is not greed, or hatred, or any of the other emotions or human flaws usually blamed for such things. Instead, it is one ubiquitous superstition that infects the minds of people of all races, religions, and nationalities, which deceives decent, well-intentioned people into supporting and advocating violence and oppression. Even without making human beings one bit more wise or virtuous, removing that one superstition would remove the vast majority of injustice and suffering from the world.

War for Hong Kong?

This article was originally published by  Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. at Lew Rockwell. 

President Trump faces trouble, and he is handling it in a dangerous way. Our economy is reeling, as the Fed pours out billions of dollars in a futile effort to avert disaster. We know to our cost that politicians, faced with crisis at home, provoke war “to busy giddy minds with foreign quarrels.”

Unfortunately, this is just what Trump is doing. According to a CNN news report on Friday, May 28, “President Donald Trump launched a blistering attack on Beijing Friday, naming misdeeds that range from espionage to the violation of Hong Kong’s freedoms, and announced a slew of retaliatory measures that will plunge US-China relations deeper into crisis.

‘They’ve ripped off the United States like no one has ever done before,’ Trump said of China, as he decried the way Beijing has ‘raided our factories’ and ‘gutted’ American industry, casting Beijing as a central foil he will run against in the remaining months of his re-election campaign.

Trump called out China for ‘espionage to steal our industrial secrets, of which there are many,’ announced steps to protect American investors from Chinese financial practices, accused Beijing of ‘unlawfully claiming territory in the Pacific Ocean’ and threatening freedom of navigation.

The President also blasted Beijing for passing a national security law that fundamentally undermines Hong Kong’s autonomy, announcing that going forward the US will no longer grant Hong Kong special status on trade or in other areas and instead will apply the same restrictions to the territory it has in place with China. Trump outlined that the US will strip Hong Kong of the special policy measures on extradition, trade, travel, and customs Washington had previously granted it.”

Let’s look at Hong Kong first, as this is the issue most likely to get the American public roused up. “Isn’t it terrible,” some people will say, “that the Chinese government has rounded up and imprisoned rioters against its authority in Hong Kong?” In answer to this, you need to bear in mind a key fact. The American government instigated the Hong Kong protests and egged them on in a direct challenge to the Chinese government. As Tony Cartalucci, Bangkok-based geopolitical researcher and writer, especially known for the online magazine “New Eastern Outlook,” pointed out last September, “even US policymakers have all but admitted that the US is funneling millions of dollars into Hong Kong specifically to support ‘programs’ there. The Hudson Institute in an article titled, ‘China Tries to Blame US for Hong Kong Protests’ would admit:

A Chinese state-run newspaper’s claim that the United States is helping pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong is only partially inaccurate, a top foreign policy expert said Monday. 

Michael Pillsbury, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, told Fox News National Security Analyst KT McFarland the U.S. holds some influence over political matters in the region.

The article would then quote Pillsbury as saying:

We have a large consulate there that’s in charge of taking care of the Hong Kong Policy Act passed by Congress to ensure democracy in Hong Kong, and we have also funded millions of dollars of programs through the National Endowment for Democracy [NED] … so in that sense, the Chinese accusation is not totally false.

A visit to the NED’s website reveals an entire section of declared funding for Hong Kong specifically. The wording for program titles and their descriptions is intentionally ambiguous to give those like US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo plausible deniability.

However, deeper research reveals NED recipients are literally leading the protests.”

Given this provocative US behavior, the Chinese government could not back down. As Pat Buchanan warned back in December: “There is another issue here — the matter of face.”

China has just celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Revolution where Mao proclaimed, ‘China has stood up!’ after a century of foreign humiliations and occupations.

Can Xi Jinping, already the object of a Maoist cult of personality, accept U.S. intervention in the internal affairs of his country or a city that belongs to China? Not likely. Nor is China likely to accede to demands for greater sovereignty, self-determination or independence for Hong Kong.

This would only raise hopes of the city’s eventual escape from its ordained destiny: direct rule by Beijing when the 50-year China-U.K. treaty regarding the transfer of Hong Kong expires in 2047. For Xi to capitulate to the demands of Hong Kong’s demonstrators could cause an outbreak of protests in other Chinese cities and bring on a crisis of the regime.”

In thinking about what to do, we need to be guided by the wisdom of Murray Rothbard. He long ago pointed out that we should oppose American intervention in foreign countries. It isn’t our job to act as a world rights enforcing agency. We should mind our own business. As he put it, “We must say rather that, given the unfortunate existence of the State, we must limit and reduce its power, anywhere and everywhere, and wherever possible. We must try constantly to abolish or at least lower taxes-whether for ‘defense’ or for anything else-and never, never advocate any tax increase. Given the existence of the State, we must try to abolish, and if not abolish to limit and reduce, its internal power-its internal exercise of taxation, counterfeiting, police state aggression, controls, regulations, or whatever. And similarly, we must try to abolish its external power-its power over the citizens of other States. The criminal State must be reduced as much as we can everywhere-whether it be in its internal or external power. In contrast to the usual right-wing partiality for – foreign over domestic intervention, we must recognize that foreign intervention tends to be far worse.”

What Murray said about intervention in Eastern Europe when it was under communist control applies perfectly to our situation: “Now don’t misunderstand me; I have not abandoned the moral principle for cynicism. My heart yearns for ethnic justice, for national self-determination for all peoples. . . . But, to paraphrase Sydney Smith’s famous letter to Lady Grey, please let them work this out for themselves! Let us abandon the criminal immorality and folly of continual coercive meddling by non-Eastern European powers (e.g. Britain, France, and now the U.S.) in the affairs of East Europe. Let us hope that one day Germany and Russia, at peace, will willingly grant justice to the peoples of East Europe, but let us not bring about perpetual wars to try to achieve this artificially.”

Trump’s complaints about China’s trade policies again ignore the role of American provocation. Eric Margolis identifies the core fallacy in Trump’s strategy: “Trump’s wars are economic.  They deploy the huge economic and financial might of the United States to steamroll other nations that fail to comply with orders from Washington.  Washington’s motto is ‘obey me or else!’  Economic wars are not bloodless.  Imperial Germany and the Central Powers were starved into surrender in 1918 by a crushing British naval blockade.

Trade sanctions are not making America great, as Trump claims.  They are making America detested around the globe as a crude bully.  Trump’s efforts to undermine the European Union and intimidate Canada add to this ugly, brutal image.

Trump’s ultimate objective, as China clearly knows, is to whip up a world crisis over trade, then dramatically end it – of course, before next year’s elections.  Trump has become a master dictator of US financial markets, rising or lowering them by surprise tweets.  No president should ever have such power, but Trump has seized it.

Trade wars rarely produce any benefits for either side.  They are the equivalent of sending tens of thousands of soldiers to be mowed down by machine guns on the blood-soaked Somme battlefield in WWI.  Glory for the stupid generals; death and misery for the common soldiers.”

Trump also mentioned Chinese claims of territory in the Pacific Ocean.  He ignored the fact that the South China Sea belongs to them, not to us, yet we send our ships there and insist we have a right to control what happens there. Also, a great deal of China’s industry and agriculture is privately owned, so an attack on China would be an attack on private property. Both the neocons and the nationalist “Right” want war with China. We should aim at peace instead, as Murray Rothbard and Ron Paul have taught us.

It is ironic that Trump accused China of industrial espionage. The US has for decades spied and monitored governments and industries all over the world, of course including China.

As the writer “Moon of Alabama” has said, “European countries do not fear China or even Chinese spying. They know that the U.S. is doing similar on a much larger scale. Europeans do not see China as a threat and they do not want to get involved in the escalating U.S.-China spat. . . Every nation spies. It is one of the oldest trades in this world. That the U.S. is making such a fuss about putative Chinese spying when it itself is the biggest sinner is unbecoming.”

The Chinese people are highly productive and intelligent, and their success doesn’t depend on industrial espionage against the United States. Rather than condemn the Chinese, Trump should commend them for their monumental steps toward a free market, with unprecedented economic growth, after suffering the carnage of Maoist communism.

Trump spoke about suing the Chinese for the damage caused by the Covid-19 epidemic. As I wrote in an article last month, “There is good reason to believe that the coronavirus epidemic is part of an American biological warfare campaign against China and Iran. The brilliant physicist Ron Unz, who has time and time again been proved right by events, makes this case in a scintillating analysis.”

Even if the US didn’t do this, it would be highly irregular to sue a nation just because a virus began there. Besides, if America wants to go that route, wouldn’t many countries have grounds to sue America for what the American government did to them? What about Iraq, which has suffered from US bombing and blockades in a war now widely admitted to be a mistake? What about people all over the world who have been killed with arms supplied to foreign governments by the US?

Rather than stir up trouble with China, President Trump should promote free trade. How can it help the people of Hong Kong to deny them its free port, with no tariffs on imports or exports? America needs to confront its domestic crisis, brought on by the terrible lockdown and financial irresponsibility.  War with China will only make our present crisis immeasurably worse.

control Coronavirus COVID-19 crisis management crumbling danger enslavement Fear German report GLobal Government Headline News house arrest human rights Intelwars liberty LIES lockdowns Mainstream media no questions asked official narrative panic plandemic propaganda ruling class scamdemic statism Stephen Kohn tyranny Virus WHISTLEBLOWER

Leaked Report: Coronavirus Is A “Global False Alarm”

In a recently leaked report, released by a German official, details show that the coronavirus panic was a fake pandemic and a “global false alarm.” Germany’s federal government and mainstream media are engaged in damage control (crafting the official narrative) after a report that challenges the established Corona narrative leaked from the interior ministry.

According to a report by The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, some of the important bits are as follows:

Some of the report key passages are:

 The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.

 The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).

 Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.

 The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.

 A reproach could go along these lines: During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.

If you think that’s scathing, just wait. It gets worse than that. Ever wonder why they had to pivot so quickly from the coronavirus scamdemic panic and create riots and looting? Well, there’s more:

-More people are dying because of state-imposed Corona-measures than they are being killed by the virus.

-The reason is a scandal in the making: A Corona-focused German healthcare system is postponing life-saving surgery and delaying or reducing treatment for non-Corona patients.

The German government quickly went to work trying to craft an official narrative and the media immediately began their attempt to dismiss the report as “the work of one employee”, and its contents as “his own opinion.” The journalists fell in line like good order followers to help keep the state in power. They closed ranks and no questions were asked of the politicians or ruling class.

But the 93-pages report titled “Analysis of the Crisis Management” has been drafted by a scientific panel appointed by the interior ministry and composed by external medical experts from several German universities. German official turned whistleblower, Stephen Kohn, who worked for the interior ministry, leaked the report.

The authors of the report issued a joint press release already May 11th, berating the government for ignoring expert advice, and asking for the interior minister to officially comment upon the experts’ joint statement:

Therapeutic and preventive measures should never bring more harm than the illness itself. Their aim should be to protect the risk groups, without endangering the availability of medical care and the health of the whole population, as it is unfortunately occurring

The media of course, went strain to shooting the messenger in the form of character assassination (it works the same in every country when someone stands up to the ruling class) instead of reporting on the message. “Stephen Kohn [the whistleblower] has since been suspended from duty. He was advised to obtain a lawyer and his work laptop was confiscated,” the media reported.

The media and the ruling class don’t want anyone to know that people are rejecting them in massive numbers. Germans are saying no to any Orwellian solution the government might one day impose out of a questionable “emergency status”, from mass surveillance Apps to mandatory vaccinations.

All over the world people are realizing the degree to which they’ve been controlled ad all over the world, people are rising up and saying “enough” to the political overlords who command them to bend the knee and bow in servitude for eternity.

Stores In South Haven Michigan DEFY Tyrannical Governors’s Orders & Open Businesses

We are finally seeing a massive pushback against the tyrannical government.  People are getting tired of living under the boot of authoritarianism, and are disobeying the commands of politicians.

Politicians are just humans, and as such, have no power unless they are willing to violence to enforce their will.  That’s where law enforcement comes in.  But fortunate, we are finally seeing people get off their knees and stop bowing to the ruling class.  Instead, they are doing what we suggested weeks ago: stop asking permission and live like the free sovereign human being you were born as. People in South Haven, Michigan have finally stood up.

Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s latest shutdown extension, which was ordered without the support of the state legislature, has Michigan locked down through June 12th. Her self-declared state of emergency for Michigan got pushed back to June 19th, according to WBCK People in Michigan have decided to disobey her and begin to live their lives again.

As she extended the lockdowns, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that the mortality rate of COVID-19 is no worse than the flu. Politicians seem upset that regular people are beginning to put 2 and 2 together to come up with 4 all on their own.

Residents of South Haven have finally had enough.  And they are not alone.

People all over this country are figuring out that they don’t need the government, it needs them.  As this becomes widely known, more people will be willing to stand up and look their master in the eye as they break their own chains.

For those who think it’s “wrong” to disobey a politician or police officer, consider this: are they not just humans like you and me? What gives them the right to take away your rights? How many votes are required to enslave you? Why are they considered more equal than the rest of us?

When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty.” -often attributed to Thomas Jefferson.

“The thing worse than the rebellion is the thing that causes the rebellion.” –Frederick Douglas

It’s past time to permanently abolish the last form of slavery and wipe it off the globe.  Humans were not meant to be ruled or governed. Humans are not the property of the state. Humans are not tax cattle to be used and abused from cradle to grave. Humans are free. Humans are sovereign. Humans own themselves.

From 9/11 to COVID-19, It’s Been a Perpetual State of Emergency

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute.

“The fundamental political question is why do people obey a government. The answer is that they tend to enslave themselves, to let themselves be governed by tyrants. Freedom from servitude comes not from violent action, but from the refusal to serve. Tyrants fall when the people withdraw their support.”—Étienne De La Boétie, The Politics Of Obedience

Don’t pity this year’s crop of graduates because this COVID-19 pandemic caused them to miss out on the antics of their senior year and the pomp and circumstance of graduation.

Pity them because they have spent their entire lives in a state of emergency.

They were born in the wake of the 9/11 attacks; raised without any expectation of privacy in a technologically-driven, mass surveillance state; educated in schools that teach conformity and compliance; saddled with a debt-ridden economy on the brink of implosion; made vulnerable by the blowback from a military empire constantly waging war against shadowy enemies; policed by government agents armed to the teeth ready and able to lock down the country at a moment’s notice, and forced to march in lockstep with a government that no longer exists to serve the people but which demands they be obedient slaves or suffer the consequences.

It’s a dismal start to life, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, we who should have known better failed to maintain our freedoms or provide our young people with the tools necessary to survive, let alone succeed, in the impersonal jungle that is modern America.

We brought them into homes fractured by divorce, distracted by mindless entertainment, and obsessed with the pursuit of materialism. We institutionalized them in daycares and afterschool programs, substituting time with teachers and childcare workers for parental involvement. We turned them into test-takers instead of thinkers and automatons instead of activists.

We allowed them to languish in schools that not only look like prisons but function like prisons, as well—where conformity is the rule and freedom is the exception. We made them easy prey for our corporate overlords while instilling in them the values of a celebrity-obsessed, technology-driven culture devoid of any true spirituality. And we taught them to believe that the pursuit of their own personal happiness trumped all other virtues, including any empathy whatsoever for their fellow human beings

No, we haven’t done this generation any favors.

Given the current political climate and nationwide lockdown, things could only get worse.

For those coming of age today (and for the rest of us who are muddling along through this dystopian nightmare), here are a few bits of advice that will hopefully help as we navigate the perils ahead.

Be an individual. For all of its claims to champion the individual, American culture advocates a stark conformity which, as John F. Kennedy warned, is “the jailer of freedom, and the enemy of growth.” Worry less about fitting in with the rest of the world and instead, as Henry David Thoreau urged, become “a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought.”

Learn your rights. We’re losing our freedoms for one simple reason: most of us don’t know anything about our freedoms. At a minimum, anyone who has graduated from high school, let alone college, should know the Bill of Rights backward and forwards. However, the average young person, let alone citizen, has very little knowledge of their rights for the simple reason that the schools no longer teach them. So grab a copy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and study them at home. And when the time comes, stand up for your rights before it’s too late.

Speak truth to power. Don’t be naive about those in positions of authority. As James Madison, who wrote our Bill of Rights, observed, “All men having power ought to be distrusted.” We must learn the lessons of history. People in power, more often than not, abuse that power. To maintain our freedoms, this will mean challenging government officials whenever they exceed the bounds of their office.

Resist all things that numb you. Don’t measure your worth by what you own or earn. Likewise, don’t become mindless consumers unaware of the world around you. Resist all things that numb you, put you to sleep, or help you “cope” with so-called reality. Those who establish the rules and laws that govern society’s actions desire compliant subjects. However, as George Orwell warned, “Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they rebelled, they cannot become conscious.” It is these conscious individuals who change the world for the better.

Don’t let technology turn you into zombies. Technology anesthetizes us to the all-too-real tragedies that surround us. Techno-gadgets are merely distractions from what’s really going on in America and around the world. As a result, we’ve begun mimicking the inhuman technology that surrounds us and have lost our humanity. We’ve become sleepwalkers. If you’re going to make a difference in the world, you’re going to have to pull the earbuds out, turn off the cell phones and spend much less time viewing screens.

Help others. We all have a calling in life. And I believe it boils down to one thing: You are here on this planet to help other people. In fact, none of us can exist very long without help from others. If we’re going to see any positive change for freedom, then we must change our view of what it means to be human and regain a sense of what it means to love and help one another. That will mean gaining the courage to stand up for the oppressed.

Refuse to remain silent in the face of evil. Throughout history, individuals or groups of individuals have risen up to challenge the injustices of their age. Nazi Germany had its Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The gulags of the Soviet Union were challenged by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. America had its color-coded system of racial segregation and warmongering called out for what it was, blatant discrimination and profiteering, by Martin Luther King Jr. And then there was Jesus Christ, an itinerant preacher and revolutionary activist, who not only died challenging the police state of his day—namely, the Roman Empire—but provided a blueprint for civil disobedience that would be followed by those, religious and otherwise, who came after him. What we lack today and so desperately need are those with moral courage who will risk their freedoms and lives in order to speak out against evil in its many forms.

Cultivate spirituality, reject materialism, and put people first. When the things that matter most have been subordinated to materialism, we have lost our moral compass. We must change our values to reflect something more meaningful than technology, materialism, and politics. Standing at the pulpit of the Riverside Church in New York City in April 1967, Martin Luther King Jr. urged his listeners:

[W]e as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motive and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.

Pitch in and do your part to make the world a better place. Don’t rely on someone else to do the heavy lifting for you. Don’t wait around for someone else to fix what ails you, your community, or nation. As Mahatma Gandhi urged: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Stop waiting for political saviors to fix what is wrong with this country. Stop waiting for some political savior to swoop in and fix all that’s wrong with this country. Stop allowing yourselves to be drawn into divisive party politics. Stop thinking of yourselves as members of a particular political party, as opposed to citizens of the United States. Most of all, stop looking away from the injustices and cruelties and endless acts of tyranny that have become hallmarks of the American police state. Be vigilant and do your part to recalibrate the balance of power in favor of “we the people.”

Say no to war. Addressing the graduates at Binghampton Central High School in 1968, at a time when the country was waging war “on different fields, on different levels, and with different weapons,” Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling declared:

Too many wars are fought almost as if by rote. Too many wars are fought out of sloganry, out of battle hymns, out of aged, musty appeals to patriotism that went out with knighthood and moats. Love your country because it is eminently worthy of your affection. Respect it because it deserves your respect. Be loyal to it because it cannot survive without your loyalty. But do not accept the shedding of blood as a natural function or a prescribed way of history—even if history points this up by its repetition. That men die for causes does not necessarily sanctify that cause. And that men are maimed and torn to pieces every fifteen and twenty years does not immortalize or deify the act of war… find another means that does not come with the killing of your fellow-man.

Finally, prepare yourselves for what lies ahead. The demons of our age—some of whom disguise themselves as politicians—delight in fomenting violence, sowing distrust and prejudice, and persuading the public to support tyranny disguised as patriotism. Overcoming the evils of our age will require more than intellect and activism. It will require decency, morality, goodness, truth, and toughness. As Serling concluded in his remarks to the graduating class of 1968:

Toughness is the singular quality most required of you… we have left you a world far more botched than the one that was left to us… Part of your challenge is to seek out truth, to come up with a point of view not dictated to you by anyone, be he a congressman, even a minister… Are you tough enough to take the divisiveness of this land of ours, the fact that everything is polarized, black and white, this or that, absolutely right or absolutely wrong. This is one of the challenges. Be prepared to seek out the middle ground … that wondrous and very difficult-to-find Valhalla where man can look to both sides and see the errant truths that exist on both sides. If you must swing left or you must swing right—respect the other side. Honor the motives that come from the other side. Argue, debate, rebut—but don’t close those wondrous minds of yours to opposition. In their eyes, you’re the opposition. And ultimately … ultimately—you end divisiveness by compromise. And so long as men walk and breathe—there must be compromise…

Are you tough enough to face one of the uglier stains upon the fabric of our democracy—prejudice? It’s the basic root of most evil. It’s a part of the sickness of man. And it’s a part of man’s admission, his constant sick admission, that to exist he must find a scapegoat. To explain away his own deficiencies—he must try to find someone who he believes more deficient… Make your judgment of your fellow-man on what he says and what he believes and the way he acts. Be tough enough, please, to live with prejudice and give battle to it. It warps, it poisons, it distorts and it is self-destructive. It has fallout worse than a bomb … and worst of all it cheapens and demeans anyone who permits himself the luxury of hating.”

The only way we’ll ever achieve change in this country is for people to finally say “enough is enough” and fight for the things that truly matter.

It doesn’t matter how old you are or what your political ideology is: wake up, stand up, speak up, and make your citizenship count for something more than just voting.

Pandemic or not, don’t allow your freedoms to be curtailed and your voice to be muzzled.

It’s our civic duty to make the government hear us—and heed us—using every nonviolent means available to us: picket, protest, march, boycott, speak up, sound off and reclaim control over the narrative about what is really going on in this country.

Mind you, the government doesn’t want to hear us. It doesn’t even want us to speak. In fact, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the government has done a diabolically good job of establishing roadblocks to prevent us from exercising our First Amendment right to speech and assembly and protest.

Still, we must persist.

So get active, get outraged, and get going: there’s work to be done.
