Nashville Suicide Bomber Anthony Quinn Warner Is A Perfect Example Of The Hopelessness That Pervades Our Society

What a sad, sad man Anthony Quinn Warner was.  He was unmarried, he didn’t appear to have any close friends, he had been involved in a legal conflict with own mother over real estate, and his death was completely and utterly meaningless.  I think that he was trying to draw attention to himself by blowing up his RV in front of the AT&T building in downtown Nashville, and millions of Americans now know who he is, but nobody will remember him fondly.  Instead, they will remember him as the man that blew out the windows in at least 41 buildings and devastated a significant portion of the downtown area of one of America’s most iconic cities.

Warner’s remains were found at the scene of the blast, and authorities were able to confirm his identity using DNA evidence.

If this had been a terror attack of some sort, there would have been an effort to kill as many people as possible.  But instead, Warner planned his suicide very early on Christmas morning when hardly anyone would be downtown, and he broadcast warnings from the RV over and over again before he finally blew himself up.

We are being told that Warner had worked in the IT field for a very long time, and that he had been “embroiled in legal battles over real estate with family members in recent years”

Warner was a longtime area resident who held several IT jobs, including one as an independent computer technician with Fridrich & Clark, and public records show he had extensive experience with electronics and alarm systems. Warner had been embroiled in legal battles over real estate with family members in recent years.

One of those legal battles was with his own mother.  Could that have been one of the reasons why he decided to take his own life?

The mainstream media is trying to convince us that the AT&T building may have been specifically targeted because Warner supposedly “harbored deep paranoia about 5G technology”, but I haven’t seen any evidence of that yet.

Instead, I think that it is much more likely that the AT&T building was targeted because that is where his father once worked

Newsweek confirmed Saturday evening that the suspect’s late father worked for BellSouth, a telecommunications company that merged with AT&T in 2006, before his death. A senior law enforcement official said that investigators would pursue the lead to determine whether “there is any nexus between this bombing and his employment.”

Of course that narrative would not serve any of the agendas that the mainstream news is trying to push, and so expect them to continue to focus on the 5G anti-conspiracy angle.

Another very interesting element of this story is the fact that Warner had recently given two houses to a 29-year-old mother in Los Angeles

A 29-year-old mother who was given two homes worth $409,000 for free by the man identified as a person of interest in the Nashville Christmas Day bombing has said she had no knowledge of the property exchange, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

Michelle Swing, who lives in Los Angeles, claims she was unaware Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, had signed the $160,000 Bakertown Road property raided on Saturday away to her last month via a quitclaim deed.

In addition to the $160,000 Bakertown Road property, Warner had earlier given her a $249,000 home

However, Warner also transfered another home on Bakertown Road to Swing via a quitclaim deed last year.

The $249,000 house had previously belonged a member of his family and Warner had only been in possession of it for five months before again giving it to Swing for free. She later also used a quitclaim to give the house to another person.

So why would an unmarried 63-year-old man give a 29-year-old Los Angeles woman two houses for free?

We don’t know, and Michelle Swing is not telling the press how she knows Warner.

I have a feeling that Warner probably encountered her on the Internet at some point, and there is probably a really good chance that he developed some sort of romantic feelings for her.

Obviously an attractive 29-year-old woman living in Los Angeles would almost certainly not be interested in a creepy 63-year-old man like Warner, and at some point Warner may have realized that he never had any shot of being with her.

Could that also have motivated his desire to take his own life?

We will probably find out more in the coming days, but the truth is that there are countless others out there that are just like Anthony Quinn Warner.

For those that are considering suicide, our society offers them absolutely nothing to live for.

Instead, all our society has to offer is more shiny new products to buy, more mindless entertainment to consume, and more years of enslavement to the corporate machine that dominates our entire system.

As children, we are taught that we came from nothing and that we will return to nothing when we die.

In between, we are told to try to enjoy the endless hamster wheels that the elite have created for us as much as we can.

That isn’t living.

At best, that is existing.

What people really need during times such as these is something to live for, and that is something that our society simply cannot provide.

But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any hope.

The truth is that we were made for a purpose, and even in the midst of this horrific tragedy in Nashville we received yet another reminder of who is really in control.  Metro Nashville police officer James Wells could have easily perished in the blast, but at the last moment someone stepped in and intervened

“This might not be politically correct, but this is my truth,” Wells said as he fought back the tears. “I literally heard God tell me to turn around and go check on Topping, who was by herself down on Broadway.”

As he was walking away from the RV around 6:30 a.m. on Christmas morning, the bomb detonated in the vehicle — causing him to lose his footing and suffer temporary hearing loss from the massive blast.

“I just tell myself to stay on your feet, stay alive,” Wells said as he got emotional while reliving the terrifying situation. “And I just take off in a full-out sprint. And I’m running toward Topping and make sure she’s okay. And we kind of meet in the middle and we just grab each other.”

If there is any story worth remembering from this great tragedy, it is that one.

Even in our darkest moments, good things happen, and we will all need to remember that during the very dark days that are approaching.

Coronavirus suicides Covid suicides Depression Intelwars isolation Japan Suicide

Japan had more suicides in October than all of the COVID-19 deaths during the pandemic

Japan recently released somber statistics regarding the number of suicides in the country, which found more suicides in one month than the total coronavirus deaths during the entire COVID-19 pandemic.

In Japan, suicides in October surged to 2,153, according to a report from the National Police Agency. This is a 39.9% increase compared to the same period in 2019. Suicides by Japanese women spiked by 82.6% in October, compared to a 21.3% increase in suicides by men, as reported by Nippon.

October marked the fourth straight month of increased suicides in the country. Thus far in 2020, there have been 17,219 suicides in Japan between January and October. In 2019, Japan had 19,959 suicides, the first time it was lower than the 20,000 since officials began tracking and recording suicide data in 1978.

The 2,153 suicides in October is more than the 2,051 total coronavirus deaths in Japan since the country started keeping track in mid-February.

Experts believe the isolation brought on by coronavirus lockdowns, other pandemic-related restrictions, and economic uncertainty has exacerbated mental health issues this year.

“We didn’t even have a lockdown, and the impact of Covid is very minimal compared to other countries … but still we see this big increase in the number of suicides,” Michiko Ueda, an associate professor at Waseda University in Tokyo and an expert on suicides told CNN. “That suggests other countries might see a similar or even bigger increase in the number of suicides in the future.”

“We need to seriously confront reality,” chief government spokesman Katsunobu Kato said last week while announcing new initiatives to help people through suicide hotlines and social media outreach.

Japanese authorities increased suicide prevention funding by an additional $10 million, raising the total budget to $24 million.

In the United States, experts found that tens of thousands of people in nursing homes “have died from neglect and sorrow related to the pandemic,” according to a report from the Associated Press.

“Interviews with dozens of people across the country reveal swelling numbers of less clear-cut deaths that doctors believe have been fueled not by neglect but by a mental state plunged into despair by prolonged isolation listed on some death certificates as ‘failure to thrive,'” the report stated.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that more than one quarter of young adults in the U.S. considered suicide in June. CDC Director Robert Redfield said in July, “There has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools. We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID.”

All Of The Bad News In 2020 Is Causing A Shockingly High Number Of Americans To “Seriously Consider” Suicide

This is a very difficult article for me to write, but I definitely need to write it.  All over the country, people are considering suicide because of all the bad things that have happened this year, and things are only going to get even more challenging in 2021 and beyond.  This greatly grieves me, because suicide is never the answer to anything, and I wish that I could sit down individually with every person that is considering suicide and get them to understand this.  Our lives are meant to be lived with purpose, passion and great joy, and that doesn’t change when times get very difficult.  In fact, when challenging times come that is when bright lights are needed the most.

Personally, even though I am constantly writing about all of the hard things that are going on in the world, I am not down, I am not depressed, and I am not on any pills.  Instead, I am incredibly thankful for the gift of each new day, and there is no other time in all of human history that I would rather be living than right now.

But if you allow your life to be defined by the system that the global elite have established, and if you are living for what you can get from that system, then the years ahead are going to be exceedingly difficult for you because that system is failing.

Over the course of this year, the entire world has been thrown into a state of chaos by the coronavirus pandemic, the global economic collapse and the tremendous civil unrest that we have witnessed in major cities all over the planet.  According to a survey that the CDC recently conducted, all of this turmoil has had a dramatic affect on our mental health

At the end of June, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention surveyed almost 10,000 Americans on their mental health. They found symptoms of anxiety and depression were up sharply across the board between March and June, compared with the same time the previous year. And young people seemed to be the hardest-hit of any group.

Almost 11 percent of all respondents to that survey said they had “seriously considered” suicide in the past 30 days. For those ages 18 to 24, the number was 1 in 4 — more than twice as high.

Those numbers are absolutely heartbreaking.

The years between 18 and 24 should be some of the greatest years of your entire life, and yet one out of every four Americans in that age group “seriously considered” committing suicide in just one month.

That number alone is sufficient evidence to prove that our society has become a complete and utter failure.  The system that we are living in doesn’t give these young people any real meaning for their lives, it doesn’t provide them with hope, and it doesn’t give them any reason to be optimistic about the long-term future.

And the truth is that suicides have been on the rise for many years.  In fact, CDC numbers show that the suicide rate has been increasing “every year since 2007”

The suicide rate among young people was already at a record high before the pandemic, and had increased every year since 2007, according to a new analysis of CDC data released on Thursday by the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety.

The new report, which came on World Suicide Prevention Day, notes that suicide was the second leading cause of death among young people after accidents.

Shouldn’t the fact that the suicide rate just keeps going up year after year after year be a giant red flag for all of us?

As a society, the direction that we are running is the exact opposite of where we should be going, and that greatly frustrates me.  Many of us keep sounding the alarm, but most people simply do not want to listen.

But if we keep going down the same path, many more Americans will fall into despair, depression and self-destructive behaviors.  Just like the CDC numbers that I discussed earlier, a recent KFF tracking poll found that Americans have had an exceedingly difficult time dealing with the events of this year…

In a KFF Tracking Poll conducted in mid-July, 53% of adults in the United States reported that their mental health has been negatively impacted due to worry and stress over the coronavirus. This is significantly higher than the 32% reported in March, the first time this question was included in KFF polling. Many adults are also reporting specific negative impacts on their mental health and wellbeing, such as difficulty sleeping (36%) or eating (32%), increases in alcohol consumption or substance use (12%), and worsening chronic conditions (12%), due to worry and stress over the coronavirus. As the pandemic wears on, ongoing and necessary public health measures expose many people to experiencing situations linked to poor mental health outcomes, such as isolation and job loss.

If we can’t even deal with the problems that we are facing right now, how in the world are we going to handle what else is ahead?

Sadly, our overall mental health was already in really bad shape coming into this year.  In 2019, it was being reported that “deaths of despair” in the United States had reached an all-time record high.  The following comes from NBC News

Rates of deaths from suicides, drug overdoses and alcohol have reached an all-time high in the United States, but some states have been hit far harder than others, according to a report released Wednesday by the Commonwealth Fund.

When things get really crazy, it can be very tempting to try to find a way to escape.

For some people, escaping means abusing alcohol or drugs, and for others it means becoming immersed in endless hours of self-destructive forms of entertainment.

And of course some people attempt to “escape” permanently by committing suicide.

But the truth is that you cannot run away from reality, and there is no reason to try to escape in the first place.

You were born at this particular moment in history for a reason, there is a unique purpose for your life, and you have a job to do.

All of human history has been building up to a great crescendo, and to be alive during this time is such an amazing privilege.

In the movie Gladiator, Russell Crowe’s character made a statement that has always stuck with me.  He said that “what we do in life echoes in eternity”.

If you make your life all about the global elite’s system and what you can get from it, you will end up depressed and defeated.

But if you focus on the things that will echo in eternity, and if you discover the reason why you were placed at this moment in history, then you will never have any reason to want to try to escape this amazing adventure that we call life.

help Intelwars John hyten Joint chiefs Personal message Suicide veterans

‘I sought help when I needed it’: Top U.S. general delivers personal message on suicide awareness

One of the most powerful men in the United States Armed Forces revealed part of his own personal story in a message this week addressing suicide among America’s men and women in uniform.

What are the details?

Air Force general and Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff John Hyten delivered a statement shared by The Joint Staff on Twitter Tuesday directed toward “service members and leaders on the importance of seeking help and being there for your people.”

The decorated general — who previously served as commander of Air Force Space Command — explained that armed forces leadership is working “relentlessly to better connect” with servicemembers’ loved ones and resources to prevent suicide among military personnel.

“To do this, we need to start with our chain of command,” Hyten said, acknowledging, “I sought help when I needed it.”

He explained, “When I was commander of U.S. Strategic Command, I felt like I needed to get some help. I felt like I needed to talk to somebody. So, I got an appointment with a psychiatrist, and I was kindly offered an anonymous, backdoor entry and I rejected it.”

“If I’d had the flu, I’d walk through the front door to see the doctor,” he continued. “This was no different.”

Hyten added, “Our mental and physical health are equally as important and they’re the same thing. I got the help I needed and I’m stronger for it. So don’t hesitate to get professional help. There are no negative consequences to your career, and only positive results for you personally. For your family, and your friends.”

His message was shared by Chief of the National Guard Bureau Gen. Daniel Hokanson, who tweeted, “If Gen. John Hyten, vice chair of the Joint Chiefs, can have the courage to reach out for help, when he felt he needed it, without fear of consequences, then so can the rest of us.”

September is Suicide Prevention Month, and Thursday is Suicide Awareness Day. Both come amid continued shutdowns spurred by COVID-19, which have exacerbated mental strains and suicidal thoughts —
particularly among America’s young adults.

But suicide rates among veterans has been a concern long before the coronavirus emerged. Nearly a year ago, the Military Times reported that “In the last four years, the official government estimate on the number of veterans who die by suicide has gone from 22 a day to 17 a day in the latest Veterans Affairs report.”

The outlet noted, “Veterans are 1.5 times more likely to die by suicide than Americans who never served in the military. For female veterans, the risk factor is 2.2 times more likely.”

Coronavirus Coronavirus lockdown Intelwars lockdown Suicide

Horowitz: CDC: 25% of young adults seriously considered suicide during lockdown

Anthony Fauci and his mini-mes in state health departments never gamed out the cost of a panicked reaction to the country’s mental health. But according to the CDC, one quarter of American young adults have thought about committing suicide since the beginning of this panic epidemic.

According to a brand-new CDC report titled “Mental Health, Substance Use, and Suicidal Ideation During the COVID-19 Pandemic,” 25.5% of 18-24-year-olds surveyed in late June had serious thoughts about committing suicide during the previous 30 days. Among 25-44-year-olds, that number was 16% – still shockingly high. On the other hand, it was just 3.8% among those 45-64 and 2.0% among those over 65. The levels of suicidal tendencies overall more than doubled since 2018 and nearly quadrupled for people between 25 and 44.

This survey harmonizes perfectly with another study I’ve highlighted that shows younger people are, ironically, more scared of dying of the virus than older people. The two are clearly related. They are suicidal because of the degree of panic and anxiety the government has caused both by overstating the threat of the virus and by the lockdowns and social isolation. The sad irony is that younger people are more likely to die in a car accident than from COVID-19.

When so many people seriously consider suicide, many of them follow through with it. In Fresno, California, for example, suicides were up 70% in June compared to the same period in 2019. The National Alliance on Mental Illness Help Line has seen a 65% increase in calls and emails since March, particularly among high schoolers.

Just think of the number of young people turning to drugs in their anxiety. Drug overdose deaths are up 47% this year in Davidson County, Tennessee, for example, where there have been 354 fatal drug overdoses from March through July 25. That dwarfs the number of coronavirus deaths in Nashville.

Perhaps these feelings of desperation in young people are also fueling the rioting and looting. What happens when you tell an entire generation of Americans that they are going to die, especially because of the simple breathing of fellow Americans? We have created a tinderbox of young people who are suffering from anxiety and even suicidal tendencies. Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb, on my podcast last week, painted a picture of what he is seeing from a law enforcement perspective. He said that they are dealing a greater degree of edginess and violence in domestic disturbances as a result of this national panic.

“Because people were out of work, kids were home, there was a lot of uncertainty, the media was feeding you with so much conflicting information – when we would go on a domestic call where we used to talk those people down, it now immediately escalated into a fight,” warned the Arizona sheriff. “You could just see people’s emotions were much higher because we put them in a state of uncertainty and a state of panic and fearmongering.”

He noted how the government is making it even worse by forcing law enforcement to get involved in enforcing these ridiculous coronavirus mandates. “When you make people feel like they are not safe and the world is coming to an end, all of those things combined create more anxiety and feelings of anger in people so when we show up and now all of a sudden that anger has a chance to be released, it’s clashing with law enforcement. Now when you start to have law enforcement engaging with normal citizens and trampling on constitutional rights, you are now pushing that again, creating more intensity and creating more potential situations for blowback.”

Sheriff Lamb has a message for the politicians: “You guys are only making decisions based on public health, but you are totally disregarding public safety. Your decisions are creating multiple public safety issues.”

If only we had the desire and technology to create a dashboard and count all of the suicides, drug overdoses, violence, and depression cases created by the propagation of panic. “If it saves only one life …”

CDC Coronavirus Intelwars Suicide young adults

CDC: Over 1 in 4 young adults contemplated suicide in June amid COVID-19

New data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that more than one quarter of young adults in the U.S. considered killing themselves in the month of June, a startling statistic that lays bare the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on mental health.

What are the details?

In a survey of 5,412 adults conducted June 24-30, 25.5% of those between the ages of 18 and 24 reported “having seriously considered suicide in the 30 days before completing the survey,” the agency reported. To compare, that is more than double the percentage of adults overall who reported suicidal ideations during the time period, at 10.7%.

The CDC found that young adults were hit harder in other mental health areas, including “symptoms of anxiety disorder or depressive disorder, COVID-19-related [trauma- and stressor-related disorder] TSRD, initiation of or increase in substance use to cope with COVID-19-associated stress,” noting that “prevalence decreased progressively with age.”

Just over 40% of all the adults survey reported having at least one adverse mental or behavior health condition in June, and that percentage jumped to 74.9% among those in the 18-24 subgroup.

The numbers confirm the fears CDC Director Robert Redfield expressed last month, when he warned that younger people would be at greater health risk of suicide, drug abuse, and influenza than from exposure to the coronavirus.

Redfield, who has advocated for the reopening of schools, said during a Buck Institute webinar, “There has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools. We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID.”

He added, “We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID.”

‘Increased instances of depression’

While the young have been hardest hit, The Washington Examiner noted that “the pandemic has contributed to increased instances of depression and anxiety across all age groups,” according to the CDC’s numbers.

The outlet reported:

Public health experts have warned that unemployment and financial hardship would contribute to increases in mental health issues. CDC analysts suggested Thursday that any intervention at the local level and prevention efforts include strengthening economic support systems to reduce financial stress, as well as to address racial disparities in healthcare.

Alan Dershowitz Fox News Intelwars Jeffrey Epstein Suicide Tucker Carlson

Dershowitz floats theory about Jeffrey Epstein’s suspicious death: ‘It seems to me very difficult’

Alan Dershowitz floated a theory on Friday suggesting that Jeffrey Epstein was responsible for his own death.

Speaking to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the former Harvard Law professor explained he does not believe Epstein was murdered, but still finds his death suspicious.

“I think he committed suicide,” Dershowitz said. “But, I think he may have paid off guards to allow him to commit suicide.”

“It seems to me very difficult that he would’ve been allowed with video cameras off, cellmate taken out of the cell. I wouldn’t put it beyond him to have paid guards to close their eyes. I don’t think he could bear the possibility of having to spend the rest of his life in jail,” he continued.

Epstein, a financier whose net worth swelled north of $500 million, was arrested last July on federal sex trafficking charges. It was long alleged that Epstein trafficked teenage girls for sex, using his network of powerful friends to shield himself from law enforcement.

Just weeks after his arrest, Epstein was found dead inside his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center where he was awaiting trial. Conspiracy theories quickly erupted about Epstein’s untimely death, but New York City’s chief medical examiner ruled his death a suicide.

The Epstein case was thrust back into the national spotlight this week after newly unsealed court documents claimed former President Bill Clinton, a known friend of Epstein’s, visited Epstein’s private island.

Although Clinton’s team earnestly denies the allegations, the court documents — from a now-settled defamation case between accused Epstein accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts — also claim that Dershowitz had sex with Roberts at the direction of Epstein.

During his interview with Carlson, Dershowitz vigorously denied those accusations. He claimed that Roberts is lying, and denied being a close friend to Epstein.

Both Roberts and Dershowitz are suing one another for defamation.

Crime Is Skyrocketing All Over America And Police Officers Are Committing Suicide

What did they think was going to happen?  For weeks, the mainstream media and many politicians on the left have been relentlessly praising the chaos, rioting and violence that has been taking place in major cities all across America.  Meanwhile, the mainstream media and many politicians on the left have also been demonizing the police and have been promoting those that are calling for them to be defunded.  It was inevitable that there would be consequences, and they have been quite dramatic.  Crime rates are skyrocketing all over the nation, and demoralized police officers are committing suicide.  And if the mainstream media and many politicians on the left do not end their irresponsible rhetoric, things will get even worse.

Are there bad police officers?  Of course there are, just like there are bad individuals in any profession.  But to demonize all police officers because of the actions of a few is something that no responsible journalist or politician should ever do.

Without the police, our society would rapidly devolve into complete and utter chaos.  I am so thankful for the men and women in blue that put their lives on the line every single day to protect all of us, and I certainly would not want to live in a society that did not have any police.

Over the past couple of months, the entire profession has been relentlessly demonized by the media and by many of our politicians, and this has resulted in a crisis of morale in police departments all over the nation that is absolutely unprecedented.

And as they see the police being publicly trashed on television, many average Americans have decided that it is fair game for them to do the same thing, and this has especially been true in our major cities.  The way that police officers are being treated in many parts of the country has been completely and utterly shameful, and it was inevitable that some officers would be pushed past their breaking points.

On Tuesday, a newly promoted officer in Chicago named Dion Boyd shocked the entire city when he shot himself in the head

A newly promoted Chicago police deputy chief was found dead Tuesday morning of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the Homan Square police facility on the West Side.

The death of Dion Boyd, 57, was announced at Chicago Police Department headquarters Tuesday afternoon by Supt. David Brown.

And then just one day later, on Wednesday, a police officer in New Jersey named Daniel Pagnotta decided that he couldn’t take any more

A veteran Trenton police officer took his own life in a parking lot Wednesday, officials said.

Sgt. Daniel Pagnotta, a 21-year-veteran of the department, died this morning in Plainsboro, according to a city spokesman.

These men leave behind a lot of people that loved them.  It greatly saddened me to read that Pagnotta was a “father of two who loved soccer”

The statement described Pagnotta as a devoted husband and father of two who loved soccer and making people laugh. His father, also named Dan, is a retired Trenton police officer.

What are those children supposed to do now?

Their father is gone and he is never coming back again.

Sadly, life for police officers in America is only going to get rougher because crime rates are absolutely skyrocketing.

According to reporter Alex Berenson, murder rates are up dramatically “in practically every big city”…

It’s not just a few cities: homicides are up 10-50% year-over-year in practically every big city – Denver, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Boston, Houston, St. Louis, Miami – everywhere.

Forget the crack epidemic. Murder rates haven’t gone this bad this fast since the late 1960s.

But it wasn’t as if someone suddenly flipped a switch at the beginning of January.  The truth is that crime rates didn’t start to explode until the riots came along.

Once everyone saw what the rioters were getting away with and that the media approved, it changed everything.  Criminals all over the country suddenly felt like they had a green light to go absolutely crazy, and that is precisely what we have been witnessing.

The tragic death of George Floyd should have brought us together as a nation and should have caused all of us to value human life more.

Ironically, in the very city where George Floyd died there have already been more murders in 2020 than “in all of 2019”.

The criminals in Minneapolis have become extremely brazen.  Robberies are up 36 percent so far this year, car theft is up 46 percent, and many of these crimes are being committed in broad daylight.

It is not just a coincidence that Democrats run nearly all of the major cities where crime rates are absolutely exploding.

Tolerating the rioting, looting and chaos that the protesters have been engaging in has been a huge mistake, because it just invites even more crime.

The mainstream media and many politicians on the left keep referring to the riots as “peaceful protests” even though everyone can see the violence that is happening.  It is almost as if they believe that if they just say the phrase “peaceful protests” enough that we will all be brainwashed into believing the narrative that they are trying to push.

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week, Representative Jim Jordan played a video montage of the violence that is happening during these riots, and that has gotten him a lot of attention.

But even though most of the “journalists” in the mainstream media are criticizing him, I greatly applaud him for having the courage to condemn the rioters.

There is no place in a civilized society for such violence, and it needs to end.

Unfortunately, what we have seen so far is just the beginning, because a lot more civil unrest is coming.

In America today, “right” has become “wrong” and “wrong” has become “right”, and we have raised an entire generation without any moral foundation whatsoever.

Now we are experiencing the consequences for raising our children so poorly, and they are going to be very bitter consequences indeed.

Trump’s Words For Epstein Sex Trafficking Accomplice: “I Just Wish Her Well”

Donald Trump had some nice things to say about Ghislaine Maxwell.  When asked about Maxwell’s case, Trump said: “I just wish her well, frankly.”

Maxwell is charged with involvement in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes. Are we now still “trusting the plan” that he’s going to somehow use the system set up by these psychopaths to take them down? Time to open your eyes.

Ghislaine Maxwell Fears She’ll Meet The Same Fate As Epstein & Be Murdered

Lawyer: The MSM Will Report On Ghislaine Maxwell’s Death In Jail

This all could be a build-up to what we are all expecting: Maxwell to expire in jail.

Epstein was arrested last July and according to the official narrative, killed himself in a federal jail in August. Most of us realize that his death was murder, however, as he would have been able to take down some of the most powerful people on earth. His death sparked a flurry of speculation about what he knew about the powerful figures from the worlds of politics, science, and entertainment with whom he had frequently associated, including figures like Trump, Bill Clinton, and Britain’s Prince Andrew.

Unsealed flight logs show Donald Trump was on Epstein’s plane, the Lolita Express, back in 1997. Trump is not the only politician we’ve shed light on. Look, I realize the cognitive dissonance in the U.S. is strong right now and many believe Trump to be some kind of messiah. But this information is pertinent considering he’s in power and has an almost occultic religious following of people unwilling to even read facts about who he is.

Alan “The-State-Can-Plunge-A-Needle-In-Your-Arm” Dershowitz Is In Epstein’s “Little Black Book”

Meet The Madam: Epstein Arrest Casts Spotlight On Clinton-Linked Socialite

A lot of people appear to be triggered by Trump’s comments. On the right, they tend to think it means nothing, and on the left, they are worried the media asked him about Maxwell and not the coronavirus hoax. This is simply more evidence that the U.S. is completely divided along political lines, and the mainstream media is going to continue the divide and conquer strategy.

Oh, and for those who are going to get triggered and go into full snowflake mode in the comments over this, I’ve highlighted Bill Clinton and his connection to Epstein several times. The point is, this isn’t a left vs. right problem. It’s an elitist vs. the people problem.

If you want to be coddled, fine. Sometimes the truth hurts. No one knows right now just how deep Trump’s connection to Epstein goes, only that there is one. No one knows how deep Clinton’s connection with Epstein goes, only that there is one.

Ghislaine Maxwell Fears She’ll Meet The Same Fate As Epstein & Be Murdered

Ghislaine Maxwell doesn’t think Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, not does she think she’ll be around to “name names” in the global pedophilia and sex trafficking ring both were a part of. No one will be “allowed” to use the system that was set up to protect the people who set up the system.

Courts, politics, and laws were created to keep the public in line, not to be used against those who set it up to control us.  It’s become absurd that anyone still believes lawsuits against the government (using the government to sue the government) will get them anywhere. If anything, we’ve seen Trump’s inability to do just that over the past three and a half years. This is all by design. Maxwell understands this and is fearful of meeting the same fate as her ex-lover.

“Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested,” an unnamed friend told The Sun. The friend, who is described as “in regular contact with Maxwell at her secret New Hampshire hideaway,” said the death threats spurred the British socialite to hire security guards, and led her to believe she may not live to see her trial.

A federal judge denied Maxwell bail on Tuesday and ordered the 58-year-old to spend the next year awaiting trial at the Brooklyn Detention Center, where she has been held since shortly after her July 2 arrest in New Hampshire. All of this ensures she’ll be in a location that’s known by those who have a vested interest in her not seeing the inside of a courtroom.

Maxwell, like Epstein, is expected to expose celebrities and politicians if she ever stands trial, which is precisely why she understands she will not.  People need to wake up and realize this. Putting your hopes and faith in a politician or person who is connected at the highest levels of this disturbing cult is worrisome.

This whole situation is starting to look like another psyop. People want to believe the system will somehow deliver justice to those who are the architects of the system.

Lawyer: The MSM Will Report On Ghislaine Maxwell’s Death In Jail

This is all a part of the agenda, and it could very well be a distraction.  There won’t be much that comes out of it as far as using the government to “takedown” these elitists. That should be obvious by now.

Prepare and become more self-sufficient. Things will continue to escalate over the next few months, and having a few extra days worth of food and water wouldn’t hurt.  If you haven’t started preparing yet, it is getting close to being too late. Shelves are emptying and food costs are skyrocketing.  Don’t hang your hopes on Maxwell talking. Prepare and be ready for anything.

Army Special Forces Captain America Green Beret Intelwars Suicide Veteran suicide

‘Captain America’ Green Beret who served 12 combat tours dies by suicide, becoming the 30th from his battalion

A decorated Green Beret who served in a dozen overseas combat tours, including six in Afghanistan, took his own life last week, becoming the 30th of his elite battalion to do so.

Master Sgt. Andrew Christian Marckesano, 34, known as “Captain America” to family members and fellow soldiers in the 82nd Airborne Division, committed suicide in front of his wife on July 6, according to Fox News. He leaves behind three small children.

Marckesano, a Silver Star recipient, had been out to dinner with his former battalion leader in Old Town, Alexandria, before returning home and committing the act. He was reportedly still on active duty but had recently moved to Washington, D.C. to start a job at the Pentagon.

The Fox News report did not disclose how he took his life.

Suicide continues to plague the military, with an estimated 20 combat veterans taking their lives each day. Marckesano’s battalion serves as a grim example of the epidemic.

Friends reportedly told Fox News that Marckesano was never able to fully recover from his 2009 tour in Afghanistan’s Arghandab Valley with with the 2nd Battalion, 508th parachute infantry regiment, a unit that had one of the highest casualty rates during the war.

“That deployment was like being in the ring with Mike Tyson for a year,” said the battalion’s former Command Sgt. Major Bert Puckett.

Puckett reportedly sent an urgent plea to the rest of the battalion after news of Marckesano’s death: “Text me, I told you before my door is open … my phone is at hand. We did things that people make movies about and in some cases, writers and producers wouldn’t even try to write our story … the rucksack is heavy … and when it gets heavy we [expletive] help each other, but you have to reach out … Don’t let the Valley win.”

Last month, President Trump announced an initiative called the PREVENTS Task Force aimed at aiding combat veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress and anxiety.

“My administration is marshaling every resource to stop the crisis of veteran suicide and protect our nation’s most treasured heroes,” the president said. “They’ve been through so much, and it’s such a deep-seated problem.”

Lawyer: The MSM Will Report On Ghislaine Maxwell’s Death In Jail

Much like Jeffrey Epstein, if Ghislaine Maxwell even comes close to “singing” and naming names, she will die in jail.  Many have already pointed out that her fate is about to be the same as Epstein’s and the mainstream media will cover it up for as long as they can get away with doing it.

We have already seen how the mainstream media reported on Epstein’s death.  His “suicide” that we all know wasn’t a suicide. We all know we aren’t getting the truth from the media, so why would they suddenly start doing so now especially when it would take down their handlers?

MSM Is Losing Control of The Official Narrative: “I’m Looking For The Truth!”

The only thing good coming out of this is the exposure of what the government and mainstream media have been for at least a century: puppets for the central banking cartel who is looking to take over the world. But don’t expect any information from Maxwell.  According to a New York Post article, her lawyer is already saying she will die in jail.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Madame’ Has Been Arrested: Will She Face A Similar Fate?

Maxwell will be silenced” in jail (like Epstein), a victim lawyer has reportedly predicted — a year after he correctly forecast Jeffrey Epstein’s early death behind bars. “I don’t think she is going to get out of jail alive,” Spencer Kuvin, an attorney for several Epstein victims, told The Daily Mail. “I said the same thing about Jeffrey Epstein and people laughed at me,” he told the news site. “I think she knows way too much information — I just have this gut feeling.”

We all know it.  The “deep state” isn’t going to allow themselves to be taken down. They set up this system and laugh at those who actually believe we can use it to take them down. It doesn’t work that way. They control the elections, the monetary supply, and mainstream media, and that’s all you need to craft whatever narrative you want.

In fact, if you want some more irony, experts told the Post Friday that there’s a good chance the 58-year old British socialite will be transferred to Lower Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center — the same facility where officials say Epstein hanged himself last August while awaiting trial for sex trafficking.

Epstein’s Autopsy Photos Are Just More Evidence That He Was Murdered

Much like Epstein’s “suicide” the mainstream media will whitewash and coverup any information she does have. This isn’t news really, just a reminder that she probably won’t be taking down the deep state as some hope.

Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Madame’ Has Been Arrested: Will She Face A Similar Fate?

We all know Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy high-profile pedophile that flew politicians and celebrities to his disturbing island on the Lolita Express, didn’t kill himself.  Now that his madame has been arrested, perhaps she will not kill herself too while in custody.

Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested Thursday morning in Bradford New Hampshire where she has been staying in a million-dollar estate. Considering how long she has been on the run, her arrest timing is already suspicious. Washington Free Beacon senior investigative reporter Alana Goodman told “Tucker Carlson Tonight Thursday that the circumstances of the arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend, and alleged madam, were “very bizarre.”

“There were rumors of all different places that she was supposedly at,” said Goodman, co-author of A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein. “I mean, some people claimed maybe [Maxwell was in] Paris. I mean, people had spotted her in Paris. There were claims about London. There were claims about, like, the Israeli embassy and things like that,” Goodman added. “There’s been some pretty wild speculation, but I think generally the idea was people assumed she was out of the country.”

What’s strange is that because Maxwell holds citizenship in France, the country of her birth, she likely would not have been extradited from the European nation had she gone there.  It begs the question, why was she just waiting in the U.S. to be arrested? “So it was very surprising that she is hiding out, really under everyone’s noses in the United States, within driving distance of the U.S. attorney’s office that is prosecuting her right now,” Goodman said.

“I think that a lot of the friends of Jeffrey Epstein who were very relieved after he died are probably pretty terrified at this moment,” Goodman told Carlson, “because I think that Ghislaine Maxwell has every incentive to talk in this situation. And if she even pretends that she might open up, she will likely face the same fate as Epstein.

“Epstein is dead … she doesn’t really have to worry about protecting him or anything else at this point. And I think that [the Department of Justice] also has more leeway to potentially kind of deal with her than it did with Epstein because … he was accused of being the kingpin in this situation.”

Alexander kearns Intelwars Robinhood Stocks Suicide

20-year-old commits suicide after seeing $730K negative balance on stock trading app — but he may have misinterpreted it

A 20-year-old man who began trading stocks on the Robinhood app during the COVID-19 pandemic killed himself last Friday after logging in to his account to find a negative balance of $730,165, Forbes reported.

Alexander Kearns, a University of Nebraska college student, left a note expressing dismay over his apparent financial situation and questioning how he was able to even get the leverage to go that far into debt.

“How was a 20 year old with no income able to get assigned almost a million dollars worth of leverage?” Kearns asked in the letter.

Bill Brewster, Kearns’ cousin-in-law, said the appearance of such overwhelming debt must have pushed Kearns into suicidal despair.

“When he saw that $730,000 number as a negative, he thought that he had blown up his entire future,” Brewster told Forbes. “I mean this is a kid that when he was younger was so conscious about savings.”

Making matters worse, there is a chance that the massive negative balance that apparently pushed Kearns to take his own life was not a full and accurate representation of his financial situation, and once all the transactions were settled, things may have looked much different. Forbes reports:

Kearns may not have realized that his negative cash balance displaying on his Robinhood home screen was only temporary and would be corrected once the underlying stock was credited to his account. Indeed it’s not uncommon for cash and buying power to display negative after the first half of options are processed but before the second options are exercised—even if the portfolio remains positive.

“Tragically, I don’t even think he made that big of a mistake. This is an interface issue, they have slick interfaces. Confetti popping everywhere,” says Brewster referring to the shower of colorful confetti Robinhood routinely deploys after customers make trades. “They try to gamify trading and couch it as investment.”

Kearns, who was living with his parents in Naperville, Illinois, expressed anger toward Robinhood in his note, saying he had “no clue” what he was doing when he entered the market during the volatile early days of COVID-19.

Citing privacy concerns, Robinhood would not disclose details about Kearns’ account situation.

“All of us at Robinhood are deeply saddened to hear this terrible news and we reached out to share our condolences with the family over the weekend,” a company statement read.

Autopsy battle for your mind Ben Crump Coroner COVID-19 crafting the narrative Derek chauvin Dr. Michael Baden elitists Floyd the landlord George floyd get off your knees Headline News hung himself Intelwars jail cell Jeffrey Epstein left-right paradigm LIES Mainstream media Martial Law masonic symbolism Military Minneapolis Murder official narrative plandemic faliled Police police officer pornstar power propaganda Psychological Operation race baiting ruling class Scam scamdemic SLAVERY staged event Suicide tyranny Violence war for our minds

Is It One Gigantic Psy-Op? George Floyd’s Coroner Was Also Jeffrey Epstein’s

There is a lot of information about the murder of George Floyd, the man who was killed by a police officer in broad daylight, that the mainstream media is intentionally hiding from the public while they ask you to look only at the color of the skin of those involved.  A piece of relevant information they just so casually left out of their race-baiting broadcasts was that Floyd’s family conveniently hired the same coroner as Jeffrey Epstein.

Mainstream reported that Michael Baden was, indeed, the coroner, but unless you dig further than the simple title, you wouldn’t know that that was the same guy who said Epstein hung himself in a jail cell. we all know the entire Epstein situation is a lie and the official narrative was crafted to cover for the elites and the ruling class. So why did Floyd’s family choose Baden to perform his autopsy? Because this is likey a psychological operation designed to bring in totalitarianism and martial law for the permanent enslavement of mankind. Tyranny has no race. We will all be slaves soon if we don’t unite regardless of our skin color.

Dr. Michael Baden, who previously conducted an independent autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein, will do the examination after the family takes Floyd’s body back from the state, their lawyer said Friday.

“We’re going to take custody back of his body, and we’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy,” the attorney, Ben Crump, said at a news conference, 1010 WINS reported.

“The family does not trust anything coming from the Minneapolis Police Department. How can they?” Crump added. –The New York Post

And yet, they trust the guy who said Epstein managed to than himself in his own jail cell?

American Gulag Death Of Jeffrey Epstein: Will Julian Assange Be Next?

If you’re still stuck in the left/right paradigm, you’d better wake up and you’d better do it quick. This is now a race to see who owns your mind; you, or the government? If you don’t start thinking for yourself, and very soon, someone (the police, the military, at the demands of government) will be using force and violence to do the thinking for you by way of mainstream media propaganda. It’s a battle for your mind.

Not only have the police and mainstream media now “admitted” that at least Floyd’s death was due to “underlying medical conditions” and not COVID-19 as we’d expect, but Masonic symbolism was found all over the murder scene such as a 666 painted on the garbage can nearby. That isn’t the only thing strange either. George Floyd was an actor and not just any kind of actor. Floyd was a porn star. The elitists have used actors and provocateurs in the past to agitate the public to the point of violence, so they can swoop in and kill with impunity.

Floyd and the killer cop, Derick Chauvin both worked together before too.

Was the whole thing staged? It looks like it, but use your own judgment to decide.

What we do know, is that people tired of the COVID-19 bullshit too quickly.  We know they wanted the public locked down a docile for as long as possible. But the plandemic lie didn’t last. People figured out the scam that it was. Now, the elitists that want your eternal subjugation to them and the ruling class have crafted another narrative to make sure they can use military force to expand their power and keep us divided.

People constantly ask what they can do about it. Here’s a thought…stop kneeling. Get off your knees, and never give another human being power over you, no matter what letter they have behind their name at election time.  Remove their funding source by refusing to be stolen from (taxed).  Stop acquiescing to power.  United, we stand, divided we fall. The ruling class knows this.

The good news is that they are pulling out all the stops. that means enough people have figured out that the problem is any and all power structures.  Once a human thinks they can control another human, things get July. Sometimes it takes centuries, but we need to face the truth that the belief in authority is driving this destructive system.

Do yourself a favor and read Larken Rose’s The Most Dangerous Superstition. 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.

After Brainwashing People For Decades, MSM and Governments Are Losing Control of People

The High Cost Of Locking Down America: “We’ve Seen A Year’s Worth Of Suicide Attempts In The Last Four Weeks”

Locking down much of the country may have helped to “flatten the curve” a bit, but it has also had some very serious consequences that public health officials did not anticipate.  Humans were created to be social creatures, and forcing us to isolate ourselves from one another for weeks on end has turned out to be quite problematic.  This has especially been true for those that live alone.  Today, the U.S. has a higher percentage of one person households than ever before, and keeping those individuals totally isolated in their own homes is not that different from putting prison inmates in solitary confinement for an extended period of time.  In both cases, it can be just a matter of time before people mentally break.

Even before this pandemic came along, the suicide rate in the United States was already soaring, and now the number of suicides is spiking like we have never seen before.  Just consider what Dr. Mike deBoisblanc of John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California says is happening in his area

“We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time,” he said. “I mean we’ve seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.”

And suicide helplines all over America are seeing an enormous increase in the number of people calling in…

Many crisis centers are reporting 30% to 40% increases in the number of people seeking help. The helpline at Provident is experiencing a tenfold increase compared with this time last year, when no national disaster was occurring.

In addition to being isolated in their own homes, Americans have also been bombarded by endless coverage of this pandemic by the mainstream media, and this has definitely helped to fuel a lot of anxiety

In all, 66% are watching and consuming more news than ever before, which is particularly puzzling considering that 68% also admitted that COVID-19 coverage gives them considerable anxiety. It’s not just anxiety either; 65% said they feel overwhelmed by coronavirus news, 56% just get plain angry, 67% feel burnt out, 59% experience fearfulness, and 50% can’t help but feel hopeless after hearing the nightly news.

And of course Americans are not just watching more news than ever before.  According to Comcast, the average U.S. household has actually been watching 66 hours of TV a week during this pandemic…

New research from telecomms firm Comcast has revealed viewing time has soared as a result, with households watching an extra eight-plus hours of TV each week – equivalent to the time spent on a full days’ work shift.

This means the average household now watches 66 hours of TV a week, up from 57 hours a week in early March.

Watching endless hours of television is one of the worst possible things that you can do for your mental health.

If you put garbage into your mind, you are going to get garbage out.

And allowing the corporate media elite to endlessly feed hour after hour of “programming” directly into your mind is incredibly self-destructive.

In addition to binge-watching television, many Americans have also been dealing with this crisis by turning to drugs and alcohol

Findings by The Recovery Village, a Florida-based network of addiction treatment facilities, reflect an “expected” increase in substance use during the pandemic, with Americans reporting a 55% rise in alcohol consumption in the last month. When it came to illicit drugs, 36% of Americans reported increased use of marijuana and prescription opioids, among others.

Needless to say, this is more self-destructive behavior that is just going to fuel even more anxiety, depression and despair.

Yes, this pandemic has been bad.  There have been more than 1.7 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States so far, and about 100,000 Americans have died.

But this isn’t the worst thing that we are going to face.  In fact, it isn’t even close.

So if we can’t handle what is happening right now, how in the world are we going to be able to handle what is coming?

The good news is that this pandemic is causing a lot of people to wake up and reflect on what really matters.

Prior to COVID-19, a lot of Americans were living for their careers.  But this crisis has demonstrated how rapidly those jobs can disappear.  There is absolutely no loyalty in the corporate world today, and most corporations will not hesitate to lay off workers once they start bleeding money.  At this point, more than 38 million Americans have already lost their jobs, and more job losses are coming in the weeks and months ahead.

Other Americans were living for the pleasures of this life before this pandemic came along.  But now bars, clubs and movie theaters all over the country have been shut down, professional sports leagues have been paralyzed, and this virus has even transformed dating into a hazard that many people simply don’t want to deal with.

So many of the things that we once valued so highly have been taken away, and maybe that is precisely what we needed.  Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan created quite an uproar when he made this point very strongly on Instagram…

“Word up, can you handle the truth my brother only love HH,” wrote Hogan, who has 1.5 million followers on Instagram. “In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship.

“God said, ‘you want to worship athletes, I will shut down the stadiums. You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers. You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters. You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market. You don’t want to go to church and worship Me, I will make it where you can’t go to church.

“‘If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself.  I wrote an entire book urging people to start focusing on what really matters, because true hope will not be found in the temporal things that the world is constantly chasing.

And it has definitely been encouraging to hear that many young people have taken this crisis as an opportunity to start thinking about spiritual issues more

A majority of teens and young adults say they are praying more or thinking about spiritual issues more than they were prior to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new survey.

The poll of 800 high school students and 800 post-secondary students found that 67 percent said they’re either praying more often or thinking about spiritual issues more compared to the time before the virus.

There is hope, but it won’t be found on a television screen, at the bottom of a bottle or at the end of a needle.

So please don’t give up.  Despite all of the craziness in our world today, the best chapters of your life can still be ahead of you.

But if you keep feeding your mind endless hours of media “programming” and you keep chasing the things that they tell you to chase, all that is ahead of you is more pain, more anxiety, more depression and more despair.

Coronavirus Coronavirus suicide COVID-19 Covid-19 suicide Intelwars Suicide

California doctors say they’ve seen more deaths from suicide than coronavirus during the lockdown

Doctors in northern California say that they have seen more deaths from suicide than coronavirus during the lockdown.

Doctors and nurses at the John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek say that during the duration of the COVID-19 quarantine they have seen more deaths from suicide than the coronavirus.

The numbers are unprecedented,” Dr. Mike deBoisblanc of the John Muir Medical Center in the Bay Area told KGO-TV. “We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time. I mean we’ve seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.”

“Personally I think it’s time,” deBoisblanc of ending the stay-at-home orders. “I think, originally, this [the shelter-in-place order] was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to take care of COVID patients. We have the current resources to do that and our other community health is suffering.”

Kacey Hansen, a trauma nurse at the John Muir Medical Center for 32 years, said not only are there more suicide attempts, but hospital workers haven’t been able to save as many patients as usual.

“What I have seen recently, I have never seen before,” Hansen said. “I have never seen so much intentional injury.

“They intend to die,” Hansen said. “Sometimes, people will make what we call a ‘gesture.’ It’s a cry for help. We’re just seeing something a little different than that right now. It’s upsetting.”

John Muir Health released a statement endorsing California’s stay-at-home order, while also supporting employees voicing their opinions on the coronavirus pandemic:

John Muir Health has been, and continues to be, supportive of the Shelter-in-Place order put in place by Contra Costa County Health Services to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We realize there are a number of opinions on this topic, including within our medical staff, and John Muir Health encourages our physicians and staff to participate constructively in these discussions. We all share a concern for the health of our community whether that is COVID-19, mental health, intentional violence or other issues. We continue to actively work with our Behavioral Health Center, County Health, and community organizations to increase awareness of mental health issues and provide resources to anyone in need. If you are in a crisis and need help immediately, please call 211 or 800-833-2900 or text ‘HOPE’ to 20121 now. We are all in this together, and ask the community to please reach out to anyone who you think might be in need during this challenging time. Thank you.

The Contra Costa County Crisis Center said their free suicide hotline had received more calls than usual, but not a dramatic increase.

“I think people have found themselves disconnected from the normal supportive networks that they have, churches and schools and book clubs, you name it,” Contra Costa Crisis Center Executive Director Tom Tamura said. “And that, coupled with the closure of some counseling services, people were maybe in a little bit of shock. They were trying to weather the storm a bit but as that isolation has grown people have come to realize this isn’t a sprint, it is marathon.”

In Knox County, Tennessee, there was a spike of suicides in late March. In six days, 10 people committed suicide, nine of them within 48 hours, according to the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network.

Misty Leitsch, Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network executive director, said there was a 62% increase in conversations through the crisis text line in March compared to the previous year.

“All of the crisis call centers in Tennessee are experiencing a spike in the number of calls,” Leitsch told WTVF last month. “I think we’re going to see numbers continue to grow unfortunately and I don’t think it’ll be immediate. I think the long-term effects of the COVID-19 are going to be devastating.”

A study by public health group Well Being Trust warned that as many as 75,000 Americans could die because of “deaths of despair” brought on by drug or alcohol abuse and suicide as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Unless we get comprehensive federal, state, and local resources behind improving access to high-quality mental health treatments and community supports, I worry we’re likely to see things get far worse when it comes to substance misuse and suicide,” Well Being Trust’s Chief Strategy Officer Dr. Benjamin F. Miller told CNN.

Fear Of The Coronavirus Has Absolutely Destroyed America’s Future

Very few people are talking about it, and even fewer are bothering to object, but by borrowing and spending so much money our politicians are essentially feeding America’s financial future into a wood chipper.  It took from the founding of our country all the way to 1981 before the U.S. national debt reached one trillion dollars.  Incredibly, we just added more than a trillion dollars to our national debt in less than a month.  On April 5th, we were 23.9 trillion dollars in debt, and by May 4th we were 25 trillion dollars in debt.  Fear of the coronavirus has caused nearly all of our politicians to suddenly become socialists, and we are being told that trillions more in spending may be coming.  This is complete and utter lunacy, and we are leaving future generations of Americans with a mountain of debt that would absolutely crush them.  But of course our society may not even last too much longer at the rate we are going.  For years I have been loudly warning that our absurd national debt is an existential threat to America’s future, but at this point both major political parties have completely abandoned any sense of fiscal responsibility.  Now our national debt is rapidly speeding toward the 26 trillion dollar mark, and the House of Representatives just passed a bill that would borrow and spend an additional 3 trillion dollars that we do not currently have…

Last week, House Democrats unveiled their latest pandemic-relief package. The bill combines aid for families, a bailout for struggling cities and states, and additional funds for testing, tracing, and hospitals. The price tag is about $3 trillion—and it comes just weeks after the president signed an economic-relief package worth about $2 trillion.

Since we are destroying the nation anyway, why don’t we make the grand total a nice round 10 trillion dollars like the progressives at the Atlantic are suggesting?

After all, we added close to 10 trillion dollars to the national debt during the Obama years and hardly anyone seemed to mind.

Of course Trump is trying to outdo Obama.  We have already added more than 5 trillion dollars to the national debt while he has been in office, and it looks like more “coronavirus relief bills” could be on the way.

Yes, borrowing and spending money that we do not have gives us an economic boost in the present.

But it is also money that we are stealing from future generations, and we are systematically destroying the bright future that they were supposed to have.

Since Barack Obama’s first day in the White House, we have been stealing an average of more than 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day.

And under Trump, that pace has actually increased.

I know that figure is difficult to believe, but run the numbers yourself and you will see that I am correct.

What we are doing to future generations is beyond criminal, and it should make every American deeply angry.

But instead, many Americans are convinced that we aren’t spending enough.

In fact, Mark Cuban believes that the government should be issuing $1,000 checks to each household every two weeks

The federal government has already sent a one-time check of up to $1,200 to millions of American families, but according to Mark Cuban, the stimulus is not enough to offset the economic pain of the coronavirus pandemic.

The billionaire entrepreneur proposed the government issue $1,000 checks to every American household every two weeks for the next two months, with the caveat that the money must be spent within 10 days of receipt or it expires. It would cost about $500 billion, Cuban estimated.

Everybody knows that you should never go full Weimar Republic, but since we are essentially doing that already, why not make it $10,000 for every household every two weeks?

After all, $1,000 doesn’t go as far as it once did.  These days, you can blow $1,000 in a single trip to the grocery store.

Of course I am being facetious.  We are literally watching our leaders destroy everything that all previous generations of Americans fought so hard to build, and it is absolutely infuriating.

At this point even the ultra-liberal Washington Post is admitting that “the national debt is out of control”, but of course the Post also keeps on promoting ultra-liberal spending policies.

We are like a morbidly obese guy that can’t even fit in his own bathtub anymore because he is so addicted to food.  Our addiction is debt, and no matter how loud the warnings get we are just going to keep going back for more.

Ultimately, the only way that the U.S. is going to be able to service this exploding debt is to wildly devalue the currency.  This is the road that the Weimar Republic, Venezuela and so many others have gone down, and it always ends in utter disaster.

Only this time the biggest economy on the entire planet is doing it, and the currency that we are devaluing is the reserve currency of the world.

Sadly, there is no turning back now.  Both political parties are completely committed to this course, and the mainstream media is fully behind them.  In fact, CNN insists that “now is not the time to cut back on the borrowing”.

So when will be the time to cut back on borrowing?

If we need to add trillions to the national debt to deal with a relatively minor crisis like this coronavirus pandemic, what in the world are we going to do when really bad stuff starts happening?

Last November, I was absolutely horrified when our national debt hit the 23 trillion dollar mark.  But by the time this November rolls around, we might be at the 27 or 28 trillion dollar mark.

Unfortunately, we throw the word “trillion” around so much these days that most Americans don’t even realize how much money a trillion dollars actually is.

If you would have been spending a million dollars every single day since Jesus was born, you still would not have spent a trillion dollars by now.

We are talking about an amount of money that is absolutely unimaginable, and we just added that much money to the national debt in less than a month.

Thanks to our free spending politicians and everyone that is supporting them, there is now no future for this country.

We are literally committing national suicide in front of the whole world, but we are so utterly consumed by our addiction that we don’t even realize that we should be deeply ashamed of ourselves.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Italy Lombardy nurse Suicide

Italian nurse commits suicide after getting coronavirus and fearing she had spread it to others

A nurse in Italy committed suicide this week while under quarantine after testing positive for the coronavirus, and a nursing federation said she was severely stressed at the thought that she had likely infected other people in the days leading to her death, according to the Daily Mail.

Daniela Trezzi was a 34-year-old nurse working in Lombardy, the area of Italy hardest-hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. Hospitals in the region are overwhelmed, and the number of Italians dying daily from the virus has escalated to between 600 and 800 over the past week.

Trezzi had been working in the intensive care unit at San Gerardo hospital in Monza, just outside Milan. On March 10, she was diagnosed with the coronavirus and placed under quarantine. She was recovering at home alone, not under surveillance of any kind. Police are investigating the death.

The National Federation of Nurses told Daily Mail that a “similar episode” occurred in Italy last week for the “same underlying reason,” implying that Trezzi wasn’t the first nurse to take her own life due to the stress the coronavirus has caused medical professionals.

“Each of us has chosen this profession for good and, unfortunately, also for bad: we are nurses,” the federation said in a statement. “The condition and stress to which our professionals are subjected is under the eyes of all.”

As Italy’s health care system struggles under a massive burden of coronavirus patients, the issue of doctors and nurses getting sick and being sidelined is only making things worse. Daily Mail reported that nearly 6,000 health workers have contracted the coronavirus so far.

More than 74,000 Italians have been infected with COVID-19, and about 7,500 of them have died—more than twice as many recorded coronavirus deaths as any other single nation.

Part of the rationale behind the shelter-in-place lockdowns in the United States is a belief among some public health officials that the U.S. is on a similar trajectory as Italy. Right now, New York City is the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. Of the roughly 838 deaths in the United States, 285 of them were in the state of New York, and 192 (as of Tuesday) were in New York City.

Chelsea Manning Intelwars Julian Assange Suicide WikiLeaks

Chelsea Manning ordered released from jail one day after suicide attempt

Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning was ordered released from jail on Thursday, after a year of being locked up for contempt of court and just one day after reportedly attempting suicide.

What are the details?

In 2013, Manning — formerly known as Bradley Manning — was given a 35-year sentence by a military judge for leaking the largest cache of classified documents in U.S. history to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. She served seven years in prison before former President Barack Obama commuted her sentence before he left office.

Last March, Manning was found in contempt of court by a judge and incarcerated for refusing to answer questions from a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.

Manning argued at the time that “all of the substantive questions pertained to my disclosures of information to the public in 2010 — answers I provided in extensive testimony, during my court-martial in 2013.”

On Thursday, a different judge determined Manning’s testimony was no longer necessary, according to The Washington Post, because the grand jury is no longer active. Federal judge Anthony Trenga wrote, “Ms. Manning’s appearance before the grand jury is no longer needed. Her detention no longer serves any coercive purpose.”

Judge Trenga’s order comes just a day after Manning’s legal team reported that she “attempted to take her own life,” but survived and was recovering in the hospital.

ABC News reported that “while the judge ordered Manning immediately released, she still faces a fine of $256,000 levied by the court,” noting: “Fines began after her first 30 days of contempt at $500 per day. The fines were increased after 60 days to $1,000 for each day she refused to testify.”

Attacker Explosion Intelwars Islamic extremism Islamic terrorism Police killed Police officer killed Suicide suicide bomb Tunis tunisia Two bombers US Embassy Us embassy tunis

Report: Suicide bombers set off explosion near US Embassy in Tunisia, killing one police officer, wounding others

Two suicide bombers set off an explosion near the United States Embassy in the capital city of Tunisia Friday, killing one police officer and wounding several more.

The bombers reportedly drove up to the embassy building on a motorcycle at around 11 a.m. local time. They approached the police patrol near the embassy as if to ask questions before they detonated the bomb.

The two bombers were killed in the explosion along with one police officer. Five more have been wounded, including four officers and one civilian, officials confirmed shortly after the attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as of yet.

The U.S. Embassy confirmed the attack in Tunis on Twitter and said that emergency personnel are responding to the incident.

A local photographer posted pictures of the attack’s aftermath on Twitter, showing the police patrol vehicle destroyed and debris cluttering the street. But the accuracy of the images cannot be confirmed.

Tunisia was the birthplace of the Arab Spiring uprisings in 2011 and in recent years has been the target of numerous Islamic extremist attacks.

But the New York Times is calling the suicide bombing on Friday the most serious attack to hit the country in recent months.

Death Intelwars Obama Philip haney Suicide WHISTLEBLOWER

Police say initial reports calling Obama-era whistleblower’s death a ‘suicide’ were ‘misinformation’

Police investigating the death of former Department of Homeland Security official Philip Haney announced Wednesday that initial reports suggesting he died via suicide were “misinformation.”

What are the details?

Haney, 66, who became a whistleblower on his own agency during the Obama administration, was found deceased in his vehicle on Friday at a park and ride area less than three miles from where he was living roughly 40 miles east of Sacramento, California.

According to Fox News, the Amador County Sheriff’s Office said in its initial press release on Haney’s death that he “appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound,” and that “a firearm was located next to Haney and his vehicle.”

In a new press release issued Wednesday, the Amador County Sheriff’s Office stated:

Unfortunately, there was misinformation immediately put out that we have determined Mr. Haney’s death to be a suicide. This is not the case. We are currently in the beginning phase of our investigation and any final determination as to the cause and manner of Mr. Haney’s death would be extremely premature and inappropriate.

The release from Wednesday reiterated that the investigation into Mr. Haney’s death is active and ongoing. The sheriff’s office has reached out to the FBI to assist in processing evidence, and has scheduled an autopsy to be conducted by forensic pathologists from the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.

Mr. Haney testified to Congress in 2016 that the DHS under then-President Barack Obama had instructed him to delete the files of hundreds of individuals linked to Islamic terrorist groups, and argued that several U.S. domestic terror attacks could have been prevented if the files had not been destroyed.

Anything else?

Immediately upon the news of Haney’s passing, several pundits and media outlets questioned the reports that the whistleblower had committed suicide.

The Washington Examiner spoke to several individuals close to Haney, who told the outlet that the former official was in talks to return to the DHS, and that he was engaged to be married. Haney himself told the outlet in November that he was planning to write a sequel to his first book, “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.”

Bully dwarfism Intelwars Quaden Suicide Video

Gut-wrenching video shows the impact of bullying on 9-year-old Australian boy with dwarfism. The world is reacting.

On Wednesday, an Australian mother took to Facebook to make an impassioned plea against bullying as her son, 9-year-old Quaden, begged to die after years of abuse over his dwarfism.

It did not take long for Quaden’s country and the rest of the world to react, sending love to a child whose pain was felt deeply.

What are the details?

Quaden’s mom, Yarrak Bayles, posted a video on social media with the message, “This is the impacts of bullying! I seriously don’t know what else to do!”

The camera is focused on Quaden, who sobs as he says, “I want to die right now,” begging for a rope or a knife and at one point saying, “I want someone to kill me, and get it out of me.”

This writer cried while watching it.

Ms. Bayles said on the video that Quaden’s struggles with the abuse have been something their family has kept private for many years, but that she has hit a breaking point. The mother made an impassioned plea for parents and teachers to be pro-active in educating their children and students on the dangers of bullying — particularly when it comes to individuals who have a disability.

The footage of Quaden went viral within hours, and as it continued to spread the following day, messages of encouragement and love for the Australian boy poured in.

A 13-year-old girl sent Quaden a message telling him that watching his video made her cry, too, and leading the team onto the pitch this weekend.

Ms. Bayles noted on her Facebook feed that a (legitimate) GoFundMe had been set up by a supporter to send Quaden to Disneyland, and provided a link, letting followers know that other GoFundMe’s had also been set up that were fake. As of this writing, the legitimate fund for sending Quaden to Disneyland had raised nearly $160,000 with a goal of raising $10,000.
