Judge Andrew Napolitano: Coronavirus fear lets government assault our freedom in violation of Constitution

He was wrong on the impeachment,but he is right on this. These shutdown orders are unconstitutional. Mayors and governors are issuing a boiler plate order that seems to always contain the phrase no gatherings more than 10 people. This is martial law under false pretenses.

“The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances." – Ex parte Milligan, U.S. Supreme Court (1866)

During the Civil War, when President Abraham Lincoln thought it expedient to silence those in the Northern states who challenged his wartime decisions by incarcerating them in military prisons in the name of public safety, he was rebuked by a unanimous Supreme Court.

This Glorified Bug Absolutely Warrants Whatever “Emergency Measures” Our Regimes Want to Impose on Us. OBEY Or you're selfish!!

Let’s try a little thought experiment. Just for fun. To pass the time while we’re indefinitely locked down inside our homes, compulsively checking the Covid-19 “active cases” and “total death” count, washing our hands every twenty minutes, and attempting not to touch our faces.

Before we do, though, I want to make it clear that I believe this Covid-19 thing is real, and is probably the deadliest threat to humanity in the history of deadly threats to humanity. According to the data I’ve been seeing, it’s only a matter of days, or hours, until nearly everyone on earth is infected and is either dying in agony and alone or suffering mild, common cold-like symptoms, or absolutely no symptoms whatsoever.

Watch: Lockheed Martin Uses Computer Graphics to Destroy Russia’s S-400s in New Promo

The clip, which heaps praise on the secretive Skunk Works division, notably features mostly computer-generated prototypes of aircraft, with the problematic F-35 fighter jet being the only already-existing model.

Lockheed Martin Corp has released a promotional video that appears to show a simulated airstrike on Russian weaponry.

More than halfway into the promo, CGI footage shows strikes by Lockheed’s planes on Russia’s trademark S-400 anti-air systems and a road-mobile Topol-M intercontinental ballistic missile system, as the voice-over narrates about the “ever-evolving threats” to US security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with the way in which the US military buys weapons from its suppliers, is rife with corruption and controversy, and must change immediately, if the US is ever going to gain, and maintain, weapons superiority against Russia and China.

It is no secret that the companies creating hardware and software for America's weaponry, donate to both sides of the aisle, so that at the end of the day, no matter which candidates or parties dominate the White House, their products will still be chosen.

And unless these products are designed intelligently, brilliantly well, and honor the American people, by also being brilliantly cost-effective, they will have failed this country miserably.

What our military needs, but is terrified to ask for, are weapons which get delivered timely; doing what they are advertised to do, and with no huge cost over-runs. Russia and China have those kinds of relationships with their suppliers; this country does not.

And THIS has cost us, and will cost us, big-time in terms of defensive and offensive weapons which really work, unless and until that changes.

And I will assure you, that US weapons manufacturers very much like the situation just as it is, with their ability to deliver so late, as to render them obsolete in the field; create products which ultimately never work as originally advertised, and have cost-overruns from here to, literally, eternity.

Israeli MP presents bills to annex Jordan Valley, impose death penalty on Palestinians

A right-wing Israeli parliamentarian submitted two bills to the Knesset on Wednesday seeking to permanently annex the Jordan Valley, the northern Dead Sea and the Hebron desert in the occupied West Bank to Israel, as well as impose the death penalty on Palestinian political prisoners.

Miki Zohar, the head of the Likud faction in the Knesset, said that the two bills he submitted would “embarrass” former army general Benny Gantz of the Blue and White party and Avigdor Lieberman of Yisrael Beitenu.

Gantz is currently speaking with Israeli parties to form a coalition government after receiving a thin majority last week from Israeli Knesset members.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Likud party, is maintaining contact with Gantz in a bid to form a national unity government, though the chances are slim that the two rivals will find common ground.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Zohar, let the Israeli people and the Knesset know how you REALLY FEEL about the Palestinians!!!

Apparently, irony is completely lost on this guy, who has utterly zero idea of just how horrific these suggestions are to rational people, even to some of the most hard-core Zionists in both this country, and in Israel.

What's next, if you have your way, forced Palestinian infanticide, Zohar?!?

And why am I having this deadening "thud", right across my solar plexus, as though he has already thought about this?!?

US House Rams Through Nicaragua Regime-Change Bill with Zero Opposition

Ben Norton reports on the passage of a bipartisan bill that further intensifies the U.S. attack on the Ortega government and received no coverage in the English-language corporate media.

As the Trump administration’s year-long coup attempt against Venezuela spirals out in failure, the U.S. government has taken aim at Nicaragua with increasing ferocity, in a bid to topple its democratically elected, leftist Sandinista government.

Washington’s pressure escalated further on March 9 when the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bipartisan resolution in a voice vote without any opposition that demanded more sanctions and aggressive actions against the Nicaraguan government of President Daniel Ortega.

This bill — which received no coverage in the English-language corporate media — refers to Nicaragua’s elected government as the “Ortega regime,” echoing the bellicose rhetoric of the right-wing opposition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent to any thinking American with more than 2 brain cells to rub together, that the criminal proclivities of this country know no boundaries, and unfortunately, the current actions against Nicaragua, are only the tip of a very dirty geopolitical iceberg.

Bashing Probe of US War Crimes, Pompeo Threatens Family of ICC Staff "With Consequences"

"If there remained any doubt that the Trump administration's hostility towards the court is fundamentally punitive and callous in nature, these doubts have now been dispelled."

by Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Amnesty International on Wednesday rebuked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over new comments bashing the International Criminal Court and threatening court staff—and their family members—investigating alleged war crimes committed by United States forces in Afghanistan.

Pompeo suggested retaliatory actions would be in store.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Threatening the families of investigators?!?

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

I know that Pompeo self-identifies as an Evangelical, "Rapture-Read"y Christian, but in listening to this language of threats against ICC families, I am truly having a "God, save me from your followers!!" moment here.

INSIDE THE MILITARY'S TOP SECRET PLANS IF CORONAVIRUS CRIPPLES THE GOVERNMENT

Even as President Trump says he tested negative for coronavirus, the COVID-19 pandemic raises the fear that huge swaths of the executive branch or even Congress and the Supreme Court could also be disabled, forcing the implementation of "continuity of government" plans that include evacuating Washington and "devolving" leadership to second-tier officials in remote and quarantined locations.

But Coronavirus is also new territory, where the military itself is vulnerable and the disaster scenarios being contemplated -- including the possibility of widespread domestic violence as a result of food shortages -- are forcing planners to look at what are called "extraordinary circumstances".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not know if this kind of "contingency martial law" scares the hell out of you; because it certainly scares the hell out of me.

What occurs to me is that wonderful line so beloved by Rahm Emanuel; "Never let a good crisis go to waste."

We are looking at draconian controls over Americans, the like of which we have never seen in our lifetimes.

And one has to wonder if the worst case scenario comes from the Covid 19 per se, or the controls which are being contemplated, to be thrown at US society.

Standing at the Precipice of a Financial Collapse

As Republican and democrat politicians hold emergency meetings to decide how to avoid a meltdown of Wall Street, the smell of hyperinflation looms in the air as much today as it did in Germany during the opening months of 1922.

This week, markets were propped up by a record-breaking offering of $1.5 Trillion in liquidity injections over the coming months (added to the $9 trillion already injected over the past six months), and rather than deal with the real reasons for this oncoming financial collapse, the media has brainwashed the west that everything would have been just fine, “if only coronavirus had not become a pandemic”.

But what is really being bailed out here exactly and why? Is this money actually making it to the real economy? Is it being invested to rebuild America’s farms, businesses, and industry?

PTLS and Show Low issue a Declaration of Emergency

WHITE MOUNTAINS – Exercising her constitutional authority as mayor for the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside, Stephanie Irwin called an emergency meeting of the council for 5:30 p.m. on March 17 to issue a proclamation regarding the Covid-19 outbreak. Council members attended by phone and unanimously approved the Proclamation for the safety of all citizens in preventing the spread of the virus.

A similar proclamation was issued by the City of Show Low on Wednesday morning.

CLOSED: restaurants, gyms malls

SANTA FE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham moved New Mexico closer to a quarantine Wednesday in an attempt to keep the coronavirus under control, closing restaurants and bars to in-person dining while temporarily shutting down theaters, indoor malls, gyms and resort spas.

The dramatic steps, which also include prohibiting public gatherings of 10 or more people and barring shoppers from hoarding supplies, are the latest in an escalating series of actions taken by state leaders in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.

‘Big trouble’ for New Mexico’s restaurants, breweries, bars

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Everything from steakhouse chain restaurants to neighborhood taquerias will face the same harsh reality in New Mexico starting Thursday: no more in-person service.

As part of her sweeping plan to limit the spread of COVID-19 during the global pandemic, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has ordered all restaurants, breweries and bars to close, except for takeout and delivery orders.

At the same time, she has ordered the closure of indoor shopping malls and required hotels to operate at no more than 50%.

What is and isn't allowed during a 'shelter-in-place' order

The basics of a 'shelter-in-place' order during the coronavirus pandemic are fairly clear: Stay at home.

But as cities, states and the federal government take increasingly aggressive moves to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, the precise details of a 'shelter-in-place' order and its many exceptions for 'essential activities' may soon become familiar to millions of Americans across the country.

Already, nearly 7 million people living in a wide swath of Northern California are under a 'shelter-in-place' order, which began Monday night.

Panic Pandemic – Why are people who should know better buying the Covid19 hype?

The only certainty about the ‘novel’ virus is that a great deal of nonsense is being talked about it by people who really ought to know better, and a great deal of opportunism is being displayed.

From Netanyahu grabbing the chance to postpone his corruption trial to Hollywood starlets claiming they have ‘tested positive’ (surely not a sad and cynical attempt to up their profile), this bandwagon is seething and teeming with those trying to seize their moment of fame or get rich or stay out of jail or just join in the mayhem

It’s cool to be nCoV-positive now. Maybe that’s why such inordinate numbers of famous people are staking their claim to it.

More than Just a Virus

As we are all collectively, as One Universe, experiencing the potential of a coronavirus infection, we have been assured that the outbreak originated in a fish market in Wuhan, China’s eighth largest city with a population of 11 million. That is the largely unchallenged conclusion since China is well known for its extensive network of high tech labs and since the SARS virus began in China last year.

At first glance, it seems a passing curiosity that the next two most extensively affected countries with corona infections, each disparate from China and each other, have extensive trade relations with China. In defiance of science, why would Italy be the most infected country outside of China?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am presenting this article for its FWIW (for what it's worth) factor; but the hype, vs/ the reality here, if in fact COVID-19 was bio-engineered as a weapon, cannot be ignored, and for precisely the same reasons Renee Parsons articulates in this article.

‘Zionist’ Biden in His Own Words: ‘My Name is Joe Biden, and Everybody Knows I Love Israel’

“I am a Zionist. You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist,” current Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, said in April 2007, soon before he was chosen to be Barack Obama’s running mate in the 2008 elections.

Biden is, of course, correct, because Zionism is a political movement that is rooted in 20th century nationalism and fascism. Its use of religious dogmas is prompted by political expediency, not spirituality or faith.

Unlike US President, Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders, Biden’s only serious opponent in the Democratic primaries, Biden’s stand on Israel is rarely examined.

Trump has made his support for Israel the cornerstone of his foreign policy agenda since his inauguration into the White House in January 2017. The American President has basically transformed into Israel’s political genie, granting Tel Aviv all of its wishes in complete defiance of international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, no matter who one votes for as President in November, US foreign policy toward Israel and the Middle East will not change to one of more even-handedness; fairness; and truly listening to the legitimate complaints of countries in the region against Israeli policies.

So, I have a caveat to share; no matter if Trump or Biden wins this election, be prepared to sacrifice your sons and daughters for more, endless wars in the Middle East, as the US government re-institutes the draft to secure Israel's position in the region.

Iraq envoy to UN threatens arrest of US troops for attacks on pro-Iran militias

Iraq’s envoy to the UN threatened on Tuesday to arrest US troops in the country for carrying out air strikes on Iranian-backed Iraqi militias in the country amid rising tensions between US troops and pro-Iranian groups.

The US “perpetrators will be arrested and held accountable” for the attacks on the Iraqi militias last week, said Iraq’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Mohammed Hussein Bahr al-Uloom in a draft letter seen by Al Arabiya English.

Iran supports militias in Iraq operating under the umbrella of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU). The US has designated some of the PMU militias, including Katai'b Hezbollah, as terrorist organizations and increasingly come into conflict with them as the US and Iran compete for influence in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me ask; did you see this headline in any Corporate Presstitute outlet, yesterday, or today?!?

Would you not think that this would be a story of extreme interest to the American people, particularly since it was spelled out at the UN, in New York?!?

Folks, the situation in Iraq is in intense melt-down, and although the current Iraqi government is doing their best to get occupying US and NATO forces out of the country, and trying to do it the "honorable way" (i.e., raising holy hell at the UN, as they did yesterday), they are not going to be successful in this endeavor.

Look for more Guerrilla fighting, particularly by Shia-aligned forces, against US and NATO troops.

And folks, here is my bet; the fighters are most probably not Iranian nationals; they are most probably Iraqis Shias, who simply want their country back from US/NATO control; and the question I have to ask, nearly 17 years after the original attack (March 20, 2003) and occupation of Iraq by the US, can we really, honestly blame them?!?

Mar 18 07:45

Rockets Hit Iraq Base Housing US Troops South of Baghdad

Details are still emerging, but this was much fewer rockets than previous strikes, and so far there has been no word of any casualties in the incident. The US has threatened retaliation for further attacks, but no such strikes were yet reported.

Both sides have been hitting one another recently and talking up escalation. That this was a much smaller, casualty-free attack may suggest that the militias are trying to save face but not escalate the matter any further.

This would depend heavily on the US not looking to escalate further either, however, and all indications out of the administration are that they consider the Iraqi militias to be “Iranian proxies,” and are very keen to keep picking fights with them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Americans are well and truly distracted (and to some reasonable degree, should be) with Covid-19; hand sanitizers; and bathroom tissue, the folks in Foggy Bottom which brought you the original Iraq War, are most probably about to bring you the Iraq/Iran War 2.0, complete with very probable Russian military assistance to the Iranians.

Madness, you say?!? Absolute madness, writ large, dear readers, particularly
when a Russian Official, meeting with some Iranian counterparts in a Moscow conference last Summer, assured them that if Iran was attacked, "it would not stand alone."

Iran Won't Be Alone, if the US Attacks. The article, from last June's Moscow Times, English Language Edition, goes on to state: "“Iran will withstand this type of fight and Iran is not alone,” Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

When asked if Russia was ready to provide material support to Iran if the U.S. attacks it, Kabulov said that “specific actions are a question for the Russian president.”

“But it’s not just Russia, many other countries sympathize and empathize with Iran,” the Kommersant business daily quoted him as saying. “Tehran won’t be alone if the U.S., God forbid, takes wild and irresponsible actions against it.”

Readers, career politicians like Kabulov do not even FART without Putin's approval; and this statement was just as much for American consumption as for the Iranian delegates attending; unfortunately, DC's lethal combination of a collective "tin ear", and general hubris, in light of the fact that the US has, ultimately, lost every war it has started since Vietnam, is not helping the situation.

Oh, and BTW, who, really, "won" the war in Iraq?!?

In short form, China. And why do I say this?!?

Take a look at the following headline, and see for yourself: Iraq signs contract with Chinese oil company to complete 80 wells in Iraq

You are probably looking at this headline, dated September 7th, 1999, foaming at the mouth, fulminating, and thinking, "why the hell were the American people not told about this?!?" It is simple; the Trump Administration didn't want you to know, so the story was suppressed in most English language papers.

Here are other articles about this, primarily from the foreign press, in English:

Iraq, China launch 'oil for reconstruction' agreement

OH, and WAIT: there's more from Reuters:

CORRECTED-China's CPECC wins $121 mln West Qurna-1 contract from Iraq

The US government is DESPERATE to prevent China from starting this development deal, so what are they going to do?!? They are going to create a situation so dangerous for the Chinese, that the risk/benefit ratio will make it "too difficult" for China to move ahead with this.

So, how will they do this?!?

By declaring "Iraq War 2.0", of course; unlike China, which very much likes to create deals to get what they want, the Foggy Bottomites will most likely declare a "national emergency", leading to yet more military conflict in Iraq, and potentially against Iran itself, from Iraq, no matter how much the Iraqi government protests, or the costs to the Iraqi and/or Iranian people.

Yemen’s Houthis Report They’ve Seized Province on Saudi Border

Jawf seized, Houthis turn sights on Maarib.

Yemen’s Shi’ite Houthi movement has reported on Tuesday that they have taken control of nearly the entire Jawf Province, a northern province bordering Saudi Arabia. This is one of the biggest gains reported by the Houthis in months.

Controlling more of the border is always useful, but indications are that this is just the start of a broader push, with the Houthis seeking to turn south into Maarib Province. That province is where Yemen’s valuable, albeit limited oil and gas industries are located.

Tuesday already saw some very heavy fighting in Maarib, with 38 reported killed. Both sides claimed to have the advantage there, but as with most central Yemen provinces it tends to be very stalemated, and fighting is probably going to continue to rage there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The capture, and holding, of Maarib, could be a real game-changer for the Houthi rebels, in terms of peace negotiations which will, ultimately, have to happen here.

Saudi Flood of Crude About to Crash Into Demand Destroyed by Coronavirus Containment Measures

March 16th, 2020
Oil just broke down under $30.

Via: Reuters:

Saudi Arabia’s move to flood the crude oil market is on a collision course with global demand that is about to be pummelled by the coronavirus pandemic, especially in North America and Europe.

As the outbreak intensifies and spreads across Europe and the United States, governments are trying to contain it by effectively shutting down many transport links and encouraging social distancing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing here could possibly have been worse; but it is hard to see how.

NETANYAHU GIVES HIMSELF BROAD PHONE TAPPING POWERS TO FIGHT "INVISIBLE ENEMY" CORONAVIRUS

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
Over the weekend we noted with alarm that the Israeli government under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now tapping counter-terror forces and technology to fight the "invisible enemy" of the coronavorus - as Netanyahu put it in a Saturday address.

“We will very soon begin using technology... digital means that we have been using in order to fight terrorism,” Netanyahu had said. Among these new "emergency measures" include broader domestic phone tapping powers as part of the counter-terror technology initiative, as AP reports:

Netanyahu’s Cabinet on Sunday authorized the Shin Bet security agency to use its phone-snooping tactics on coronavirus patients, an official confirmed, despite concerns from civil-liberties advocates that the practice would raise serious privacy issues. The official spoke on condition of anonymity pending an official announcement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why do I get the feeling that government leadership is not all that concerned with actually controlling the spread of the virus, per se, but controlling the people the virus may effect?!?

Remember that phrase so adored by Rahm Emanuel, "Never let a good crisis go to waste."?!?

I think we are going to see that, writ large, by many governments around the world, in the coming weeks and months, under the "excuse" of controlling the virus.

YouTube warns more videos than usual could be removed as content moderation is automated amid coronavirus outbreak

YouTube has warned creators they could see more videos than usual being removed from the platform, as a result of its employees being told to work from home amid the coronavirus outbreak.

YouTube announced Monday that its video review process will be "temporarily" more automated, relying more on machine-learning tools instead of its bevy of human content moderators. Google, YouTube's parent company, has ordered most of its nearly 120,000 employees to work remotely as a precaution against the spread of coronavirus.

Is Washington’s Attack Against Chinese Media a Bad Joke?

If you have monopoly on disseminating information to all corners of the Planet, such cynical approach might actually work.

If only one person is allowed to talk, then what he says could become, inevitably, the truth.

Washington loves to snap at “undemocratic nations”. But the truth is, both the United States and the United Kingdom, in unison, have managed to create a thoroughly and truly undemocratic global system of governance, economic practices and “information” (in fact – disinformation).

What is really behind all this?

Russian, Chinese, Latin American and even Iranian media outlets are becoming extremely influential in the educated circles in the West. It is because many citizens in Europe and the United States do not trust their own media, anymore. They are turning for information to such media outlets as RT, China Daily, CGTN, PressTV, NEO and Telesur.

Geopolitical Genius Donald J. Has Backed Saudi Arabia’s MBS to the Hilt Only to Get a Price War on US Shale in Return

Donald Trump made one of the biggest mistakes of his presidency in the spring of 2017, when he offered an unconditional embrace to the then-emerging 31-year-old ruler of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, and adopted his agenda of aggressively confronting Iran. Three years later, as Trump grapples with the greatest crisis he has faced, that choice is costing him dearly.

As Coronvirus Grips the US, Americans Get a Taste of Life Under Sanctions

The crippling shortages, inability to move and the likely overwhelming of medical services will give Americans a taste of what it is like to live under sanctions that it imposes on a number of countries worldwide. U.S. sanctions on Venezuela, declared illegal and a “crime against humanity” by the United Nations, are conservatively estimated to have killed more than 40,000 people between 2017 and 2018 alone. Diabetics, for example, have been unable to get insulin because of the embargo, leading to mass deaths. The Cuban government estimates that the American embargo has cost it over $750 billion. Meanwhile, Iran, wracked by the virus that has caused more than 850 confirmed deaths, has been decimated by Trump’s increased sanctions.

At least in wartime, the bars stay open.

The mega financial bubble-of-bubbles is deflating with frightful velocity precisely because of the efforts since 2008 to artificially inflate it. The Federal Reserve gave it one final blast Sunday night — while everybody else was counting their rolls of toilet paper — and the effect was like blowing hot air into a shredded Zeppelin.

The Coronavirus Hoax

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

The Coronavirus Hobgoblin

The great H.L. Mencken, a classical liberal when such creatures still existed, once wrote, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.” I find myself repeating this quote more and more these days.

America, and the rest of the world, is in the throes of a panic that has never been seen before, outside the fanciful scripts of Hollywood. A new “super” virus, the Coronavirus, is being hyped nonstop by our state-controlled media as the new bubonic plague. The fear porn emanating from our television sets is relentless.

The Coronavirus and the New World Order:“War is in the Air”"Time is out of joint..." – "Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark". William Shakespeare from his tragedy Hamlet

The worldwide fear of a hitherto unknown but supposedly highly contagious and weapons-grade virus means that many people feel paralysed, public life in several states is crippled by governments, at the same time fundamental civil liberties are “honed” or severely restricted and also the military is brought into readiness. What is going on here?

The former Soviet head of state Mikhail Gorbachev recently described the current political situation as extremely worrying. According to “Sputnik News” of 12.03.20 he wrote: “War is in the air.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

What concerns me most gravely right now, are statements from the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, regarding alleged "Iranian Paramilitary Activity", hitting the US's crumbling military stance in Iraq right now, where both the Iraqi people, and military, are demanding that the US military leave the country, and right the hell now.

We found this "little gem" in rt.com, their English language edition, yesterday: US will act in ‘self-defense’ if attacked in Iraq – Pompeo

The article went on to state: "Washington will act in “self-defense” in Iraq if its military comes under attack, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. US bases in Iraq have been repeatedly shelled recently and several servicemen have been killed and injured.

Pompeo told Iraqi PM Adil Abd al-Mahdi that Baghdad “must defend Coalition personnel supporting the Iraqi government's efforts to defeat ISIS,” the US Department of State said in a statement on Monday.

Those “responsible for the attacks must be held accountable,” the official warned, adding that Washington “will not tolerate attacks and threats to American lives” and will take “action as necessary in self-defense."

And right below that, we see the following headline: "Baghdad Summons US and British Envoys after condemning their strikes on Iraqi Targets as "violation of Sovereignty". The article goes on to state:

"Over the past week the US Camp Taji base, located north of Iraq’s capital, came under rocket shelling twice. On Wednesday, three soldiers, two from the US and one from the UK, were killed at the installation, while a dozen others were injured. Iraqi military personnel were affected by the attack as well.

While no one claimed responsibility for the deadly shelling, Washington was quick to blame Iraqi Shia militias for it and launched “retaliatory” airstrikes on them. Since said militias are an integral part of the Iraqi military, the US basically bombed its own allies, killing at least six servicemen and wounding several more."

So I have to ask; under what possible geopolitical circumstance, could this possibly make sense, in Pompeo's weltanschauung?!?

The answer becomes frighteningly real, from an except of the following article last year, in an interview Pompeo did, where he made the following statements, as recorded by bbcnews.com:;
Pompeo says God may have sent Trump to save Israel from Iran
The article goes on to state:

"US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said it is "possible" that President Donald Trump was sent by God to save Israel from Iran.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network during a high-profile trip to Israel, he said it was his faith that made him believe that.

He also praised US efforts to "make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state, remains".

The comments came on a Jewish holiday celebrating rescue from genocide.

The holiday, Purim, commemorates the biblical rescue of the Jewish people by Queen Esther from the Persians, as the interviewer noted to Mr Pompeo.

What did Pompeo say?

He was asked if "President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from an Iranian menace".

"As a Christian, I certainly believe that's possible," said Mr Pompeo, a former member of Congress for Kansas and CIA director.

"I am confident that the Lord is at work here," he added."

OK, there you have it folks; to energize their evangelical base, a "faith-based" foreign policy has been put into play, which consistently demonizes Iran, and consistently characterises Israel as "the innocent party", in geopolitical affairs when most of the time, nothing could be further from the truth.

There's a phrase in DC, the originator of which I cannot recall at the moment, but it goes something like this; "Never let a good crisis go to waste"; now having said that, Covid 19, and its monumental spread, does comprise a health crisis of huge concern.

But please also note, today, in RT, there is a very serious article at the top of the blog with the following headline: US halts deployment & recalls troops from NATO’s biggest drill ‘Defender Europe 2020’ due to coronavirus threat

Sounds good, and reasonable, on the surface, doesn't it?!?

But what if there are other deployments to come for these military personnel, which may well not be announced beforehand?!?

I would like to politely speculate that these battles in Iraq against alleged "Iranian militia" at US Camp Taji base, and beyond, may well be only the "beginning here; the US government is flailing, in both Iraq, and in its Covid 19 response, and President Trump well knows that a combination of the wall-street melt-down with a "too-little too late" response to the pandemic, will most likely result in his 2020 candidacy going up in absolute flames, unless he "does something dramatic."

So please, do not bet that a war against Iran, and ultimately against Russia, which has declared their support for Iran should the US attack it (and publicly: Iran won't be alone if the US attacks it, says Russian official), is off the table for these people, particularly for Pompeo.

The Forgotten Epidemic: Cholera in Yemen

The cholera outbreak started in Yemen in October 2016. The outbreak exploded in 2017 when the country saw over one million cases, the worst cholera epidemic since records started in 1949. In 2019, Yemen experienced the second-worst year, with over 860,000 suspected cases. 2020 is on track to be another bad year, with over 56,000 new suspected cases recorded in the first seven weeks. As of March 8th 2020, the World Health Organization has recorded 2,263,304 cholera cases in Yemen and 3,767 deaths related to the illness since 2017.

The international humanitarian organization Oxfam has warned the rainy season in Yemen will cause a spike in cholera cases, as it has in previous years. The rainy season starts in mid-April and lasts until August.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is for me, as a 70 year old American, is the very unmistakable realization that, no matter who I vote for (and God knows, of the current batch of Candidates on the Democratic side of the Aisle, the only one looking half-way viable, is Tulsi Gabbard, the Representative from Hawaii, who has been marginalized out of both the debates, and out of running for President), I only have a choice for which war-monger in chief, and merchant of death in chief, is running the White House, and US foreign policy.

Our alleged "choices" for leadership every 4 years, only includes those warmongers fully capable of sating the military industrial complex's bloodlust, and that never augers well for world peace.

From my perspective, American elections are very much akin to Kabuki-like exercises in futility, where none of the choices of peace-centric Americans are ever honored, expect in the breach.

We have both President Trump and Vice-President Biden fulminating as to which of them will actually protect Israel better from the consequences of its own actions; the Middle East, and South America, have the oil; so the wars of destabilization will continue against them, and briskly.

We see "Rapture Ready" Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, actually make the statement on record with the BBC, that President Trump may have been put into office to save Israel from Iran.

Whatever battlefields will erupt, however, will have to do so quickly, and with a minimum of time before they cab take hold; the center cannot manage to stay together in this economy.

And as to the question about when we will get something better than "the lesser of two evils", I am hard-pressed to say, "Never!!" until this country's present state collapses, and we are either faced with martial law, the severity of which would make a Chinese politburo blush, or some kind of new orientation and system, we are going to be dealing with a "business as usual" which can never be "normal" again.

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is a very tough state of affairs for this country, but that is precisely where we are right now.

The world can't forget the fight for the Saudi crown amid virus panic: The political landscape is changing as the Covid-19 outbreak undermines Donald Trump and his allies, such as Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

by Patrick Cockburn, theindependent.uk.co

The political consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic are already vast because its advance, and the desperate measures taken to combat it, entirely dominate the news agenda and will go on doing so for the foreseeable future, although it is in the nature of this unprecedented event that nothing can be foreseen.

History has not come to a full stop because of the virus, however: crucial events go on happening, even if they are being ignored by people wholly absorbed by the struggle for survival in the face of a new disease. Many of these unrecognised but very real crises are taking place in the Middle East, the arena where great powers traditionally stage confrontations fought out by their local proxies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, Patrick; let's not forget one very critical factoid,which you painfully and awkwardly attempted to camouflage by omission, in that last bit regarding Iraq's invasion of Kuwait:

[Congressional Record: January 26, 2011 (House)]
[Page H503]
HOW THE 20-YEAR WAR STARTED

The article went on to state: " Mr. PAUL. Mr. Speaker, how did the 20-year war get started? It had
been long assumed that the United States Government, shortly before
Iraq invaded Kuwait in August of 1990, gave Saddam Hussein a green
light to attack. A State Department cable recently published by
WikiLeaks confirmed that U.S. Ambassador April Glaspie did indeed have
a conversation with Saddam Hussein one week prior to Iraq's August 1,
1990, invasion of Kuwait. Amazingly, the released cable was entitled,
``Saddam's Message of Friendship to President Bush.'' In it, Ambassador
Glaspie affirmed to Saddam that ``the President had instructed her to
broaden and deepen our relations with Iraq.'' As Saddam Hussein
outlined Iraq's ongoing border dispute with Kuwait, Ambassador Glaspie
was quite clear that, ``we took no position on these Arab affairs.''
There would have been no reason for Saddam Hussein not to take this
assurance at face value. The U.S. was quite supportive of his invasion
and war of aggression against Iran in the 1980s. With this approval
from the U.S. Government, it wasn't surprising that the invasion
occurred. The shock and surprise was how quickly the tables were turned
and our friend, Saddam Hussein, all of a sudden became Hitler
personified.
The document was classified, supposedly to protect national security,
yet this information in no way jeopardized our security. Instead, it
served to keep the truth from the American people about an event
leading up to our initial military involvement in Iraq and the region
that continues to today.

{time} 1440

The secrecy of the memo was designed to hide the truth from the
American people and keep our government from being embarrassed.
This was the initial event that had led to so much death and
destruction--not to mention the financial costs--these past 20 years."

This is something which can no longer be ignored by either the American people, or the world, sir.

And to President Trump, sir, a word; your proclivity for liking the company of dictators who can "get away with" murder (literally, like Saudi Arabia's Mohammed Bin Salman, and never having to face the consequences), is something of which the American people are growing painfully tired.

Getting US troops out of Yemen, where they are enabling Saudi war crimes in that country, would be one of the most practically intelligent things you could do right now, but I am betting you won't, simply because of what could be characterized by "Imperial Hubris."

Please, have someone look up the words I have just typed, and break them down for you, simply.

Between the stock-market selloff, coupled with your lackluster Covid 19 scare response, your re-election, which seemed a safe bet several months ago, is now thrown open for question, and the challenge by your would-be Democratic contender, Joe Biden, whose mental faculties seem to be sorely, and publicly, tested by this campaign, is gaining pace.

And while there are moments when I worry about your desire to throw weapons at the bad guy (whoever the "bad guy du jure" is), I cringe to think that it might possibly be a President Biden with his hands around the nuclear football.

Whoops! A holiday missed! Remembering Liberty and Patrick!

Ireland and her people have always and nearly constantly battled against others to win and keep their liberty. For all of recorded history, Irish patriots have been challenged by internal tyrants and bandits (often with little to tell the two apart). The Emerald Isle has been a constant attraction to invaders, including Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Danes and other Vikings, the Norman French and last (and longest), their English and Scots neighbors. Other, more subtle invasions have been a problem as well. In modern times, the submission of Ireland to the European Union is such a problem. But there are more forms of tyranny. These include organized religion: churches. Specifically the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of Ireland (part of the Church of England – Anglican).

Detect, Deter and Annihilate: How the Police State Will Deal with a Coronavirus Outbreak

By John W. Whitehead
March 16, 2020

“Fear is a primitive impulse, brainless as hunger, and because the aim of horror fiction is the production of the deepest kinds of fears, the genre tends to reinforce some remarkably uncivilized ideas about self-protection. In the current crop of zombie stories, the prevailing value for the beleaguered survivors is a sort of siege mentality, a vigilance so constant and unremitting that it’s indistinguishable from the purest paranoia.”— Terrence Rafferty, New York Times

What do zombies have to do with the U.S. government’s plans for dealing with a coronavirus outbreak?

Why Is Italy a Target?

In "The Conspirators' Hierarchy: the Committee of 300", (1992) John Coleman said the first two targets of the Illuminati are US and Italy: the first because US is the most powerful and richest nation in the World; the second for its long Catholic tradition and its central place in western civilization.

Until the 80's, Italy was the fourth economy in the World. Only US, Japan and Germany were more powerful. Then, Italy had 9 hospital beds per 100.000 people. The North of the country had really the best health care system in the World when I was a child. If this coronavirus epidemic had happened in the 80's, Italy could have the possibility to manage the situation without draconian measures. But now, after the budget limitations imposed by European Union, even if Italy is a net contributor for it (we give Europe Union more money than we receive), we were forced to cut the budget for our national health care system which now is close to collapse.

Ron Paul on the Slippery Slope of Mandated Vaccination

No matter your stance on vaccination, every American should be stopping to consider the ramifications of any forced medical procedure or medication in this nation. The fact the your government can hold your job, schooling or hard earned benefits hostage of lack of a commercial product with risk, questionable efficacy and zero corporate liability which combats a tiny percentage of infectious disease that pales when compared to the litany of medical ills that ravage our population is contrary to our nation's very DNA.

Economic Effect of Coronavirus Could Be Revolutionary

Paul Craig Roberts

Coronavirus and globalism will teach us vital lessons. The question is whether we can learn vital lessons that do not serve the ruling interest groups and ideologies.

Coronavirus will teach us that a country without free national health care is severely handicapped. Millions of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They cannot afford health care premiums, deductions, and copays. Millions have no insurance. This means millions of people infected with coronavirus who cannot get medical help. The morbidity from this is intolerable in any society.

Shutdowns associated with efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus will deny income to millions of Americans who live paycheck to paycheck. What do they do for food, shelter, transportation? You don’t have to think very long along these lines to see a very frightening scenario.

Mar 16 08:09

How Many People Have Coronavirus?

The majority of the people stripping items off store shelves know nothing about the virus, and if they did, they wouldn’t care. They’re acting like frothing marauders because other people are, too. “I’ve got to get paper towels and pet food because everyone else is hoarding them.”

Now there’s REAL contagion.Quarantines, lockdowns, the advice to maintain “social distancing,” and wall-to-wall propaganda about “transmission of the virus” have resulted in mass cancelation of public events and the shuttering of large venues. Untold numbers of small businesses are in serious trouble.

This is a direct attack on the economy. It is also a ripping of the right to “peaceably assemble,” one of the natural freedoms embodied in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. As usual, “the threat to public safety and health” is invoked to override freedoms and rights.

Iranian, Russian and Chinese Officials Claim COVID-19 Is A Biological Weapon

Regarding “peddling conspiracy theories”, Im not discussing suspicions raised by people on Reddit or 8 Chan, officials from world governments are saying it. Should I censor what these nation’s officials are claiming? When do I pick and choose which claim to cover and which to ignore? Just because you might not agree with the theory doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be heard. I’m firmly against censorship and think it’s best to be open minded enough to hear someone out no matter how crazy the theory may sound.

Coronavirus was produced in a laboratory: Former CIA intel officer

If the Chinese believe this whether true or not,we are heading for a war with China.

A former American counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer of the CIA has said that the “Coronavirus did not occur naturally through mutation but rather was produced in a laboratory, possibly as a biological warfare agent.”

Since the novel coronavirus outbreak began in China last December, it has infected more than 90,000 people globally and killed more than 3,000. The majority of cases and deaths remain in mainland China.

The death toll from the coronavirus in Iran, which has one of the highest numbers outside China, stood at 107, Health Ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur said Thursday.

The author has worked in the field of international diplomacy for more than a decade and has deployed as an election observer to several countries, including Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Albania, and the United States.
Activists are calling for international observers for US primaries, claiming they’re rigged. The thing is, observers aren’t mandated to watch internal party processes – but the real problem lies in multi-party competition, anyway.

With hashtags such as #RiggedDNC and #RiggedPrimary trending, there has been a flurry of calls for outside monitors on social media and by activists, who cite a series of voter-suppression acts and possibly rigged voting machines.

FLASHBACK: Globalists Only Need One More Major Event To Finish Sabotaging The Economy

The goal of this war is NOT to balance the US trade deficit or pursue more fair circumstances for US exports and imports. The intention of the Trump Administration is NOT to fight back against Chinese “exploitation” of US markets, this kind of rhetoric is pure theater. Nor is it Trump’s intention to undermine globalist structures or agreements in order to bring back American manufacturing (a carrot that has been flaunted in front of American faces for a long time to lure them into supporting destructive policies such as dollar devaluation). On the contrary, the real purpose of Trump’s trade war is to provide a distraction massive enough to cover for the controlled demolition of the US economy and parts of the global economy by globalists and the central banks they control.

White House Removes Public Health Experts from Coronavirus Discussions

The White House held dozens of meetings about coronavirus response that excluded government experts because the discussions were unnecessarily classified over the objections of HHS Secretary Alex Azar, reports Reuters. Experts were not just barred from speaking openly about what we knew about the emerging pandemic. Apparently, they weren’t even allowed in the room.

“It is not normal to classify discussions about a response to a public health crisis,” an unnamed official from the Republican George W. Bush administration told the wire service. Yet this is President Trump’s approach to nearly every public health and environmental threat: find some way to exclude the experts, stop them from speaking publicly, and make decisions in a vacuum. The deliberate sidelining of public health experts and science leads to bad policy, and ultimately, to more sickness and death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Will someone out there please tell me that this was a very bad, early April Fool's joke?!?

No, seriously, THIS WAS ACTUALLY ALLOWED TO HAPPEN?!?

BIG PHARMA PREPARES TO PROFIT FROM THE CORONAVIRU$

As the new coronavirus spreads illness, death, and catastrophe around the world, virtually no economic sector has been spared from harm. Yet amid the mayhem from the global pandemic, one industry is not only surviving, it is profiting handsomely.

“Pharmaceutical companies view Covid-19 as a once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity,” said Gerald Posner, author of “Pharma: Greed, Lies, and the Poisoning of America.” The world needs pharmaceutical products, of course. For the new coronavirus outbreak, in particular, we need treatments and vaccines and, in the U.S., tests. Dozens of companies are now vying to make them.

“They’re all in that race,” said Posner, who described the potential payoffs for winning the race as huge. The global crisis “will potentially be a blockbuster for the industry in terms of sales and profits,” he said, adding that “the worse the pandemic gets, the higher their eventual profit.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by this development.

Panicked Politicians are the Real Danger of the Outbreak

It does not help that numerous psychologists are telling us ‘don’t let coronavirus tip society into panic’. As a sociologist with a professional interest in how fear works I can confirm that nobody decides to panic.

People panic when the messages communicated to them incite them to be afraid of fear itself. Unfortunately, the message that we frequently encounter is one that makes me feel like I am in the middle of a very, very slow but very long Hollywood disaster movie.

In recent weeks the West European media has become obsessed with worst case scenarios. It is as if they are overcome by a disturbing malaise of disaster pornography and love exposing their listeners to speculative forecasts about the millions that could die if the coronavirus turns out more prevalent and more deadly than we now imagine.

US CDC Director Robert Redfield Admitted that Coronavirus Deaths Have Been Miscategorized as Flu

The US has been lying all along.

Robert Redfield, CDC director, testifying to Congress, today admitted that virus deaths have been miscategorised as the flu.

He also stated that the standard practice has been to first test people for the flu and, if the test is positive, they stop there. They don’t test for the coronavirus.

So Japan and Taiwan were correct. Many of the US deaths attributed to the flu were actually from the coronavirus.

FLASHBACK: US diplomats involved in trafficking of human blood and pathogens for secret military program

The US Embassy to Tbilisi transports frozen human blood and pathogens as diplomatic cargo for a secret US military program. Internal documents, implicating US diplomats in the transportation of and experimenting on pathogens under diplomatic cover were leaked to me by Georgian insiders. According to these documents, Pentagon scientists have been deployed to the Republic of Georgia and have been given diplomatic immunity to research deadly diseases and biting insects at the Lugar Center – the Pentagon biolaboratory in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.

This military facility is just one of the many Pentagon biolaboratories in 25 countries across the world. They are funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) under a $ 2.1 billion military program – Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP), and are located in former Soviet Union countries such as Georgia and Ukraine, the Middle East, South East Asia and Africa.

FLASHBACK: The Long-suppressed Korean War Report on U.S. Use of Biological Weapons Released At Last

Written largely by the most prestigious British scientist of his day, this report was effectively suppressed upon its release in 1952. Published now in text-searchable format, it includes hundreds of pages of evidence about the use of U.S. biological weapons during the Korean War, available for the first time to the general public.

Download the full report here.

*

Back in the early 1950s, the U.S. conducted a furious bombing campaign during the Korean War, dropping hundreds of thousands of tons of ordnance, much of it napalm, on North Korea. The bombardment, worse than any country had received up to that point, excepting the effects of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, wiped out nearly every city in North Korea, contributing to well over a million civilian deaths. Because of the relentless bombing, the people were reduced to living in tunnels. Even the normally bellicose Gen. MacArthur claimed to find the devastation wreaked by the U.S. to be sickening.[1]

Would It Be Unamerican To Refuse Coronavirus Vaccination?

The day is going to come when the long-awaited coronavirus vaccine becomes available. Will it be your civic duty to submit to vaccination?

I’m asking you why you are believing the scare tactics of the virologists, in particular that everyone will get infected with coronavirus. Great! Then nobody will need to get vaccinated!! Because they will have already developed antibodies on their own. This is the great ruse of the coronavirus. Manipulation of the population by health authorities.

A few may be sickened – – smokers, diabetics, obese, the aged, etc. The very weak may succumb to a viral infection that would otherwise cause only mild symptoms. The healthy will either experience a mild fever or no symptoms at all.

COVID-19: Further Evidence that the Virus Originated in the US

The Taiwanese physician noted that in August of 2019 the US had a flurry of lung pneumonias or similar, which the Americans blamed on ‘vaping’ from e-cigarettes, but which, according to the scientist, the symptoms and conditions could not be explained by e-cigarettes. He said he wrote to the US officials telling them he suspected those deaths were likely due to the coronavirus. He claims his warnings were ignored.

Immediately prior to that, the CDC totally shut down the US Military’s main bio-lab at Fort Detrick, Maryland, due to an absence of safeguards against pathogen leakages, issuing a complete “cease and desist” order to the military. It was immediately after this event that the ‘e-cigarette’ epidemic arose.

Big Pharma And Microsoft Are Teaming Up In Something Called The ‘ID2020 Alliance’ That Will Combine Vaccinations With Implantable Microchips To Create Your Digital ID

This whole virus sham and scam is about chipping all of us through a mandatory vaccine.

Big Pharma is officially partnering with the tech industry to pair “immunization” with digital biometrics, meaning humans will soon be microchipped, tracked, and ultimately controlled through a global identification matrix.

For years we’ve been watching as Microsoft founder Bill Gates, now retired from the company he founded, use his billions to give ‘free vaccinations‘ to people in third world countries. Now Bill has become a founding partner in another company, this one is called the ID2020 Alliance, and its goal is to give every human being on Earth a digital id. How do they plan on accomplishing this feat? By combining mandatory vaccinations with implantable microchips. Genius, isn’t it? And coming soon to a theater near you, as the saying goes.

Biometric Vaccines Are Here Preceding Forced Digital ID

The future of vaccines is here, just in time for the coming forced digital ID. This isn’t some sci-fi movie based on some conspiracy theorists’ idea of Revelation where every living being is required to be tagged. Biometric vaccines are real, are in use and have been deployed in the United States.

Biometric vaccines are immunizations laced with digital biometrics, created from merging the tech industry with big pharma. This new form of vaccine injects microchips into the body creating a global ID matrix to track and control every person. Not only has this satanic system already been rolled out, billions may already have been injected unaware.

ID2020 Alliance, a program aimed at chipping every person on earth, has collaborated with GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations) to inject these microchips into the body through immunization.

US Intel Agencies Played Unsettling Role in Classified and “9/11-like” Coronavirus Response Plan

As the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis comes to dominate headlines, little media attention has been given to the federal government’s decision to classify top-level meetings on domestic coronavirus response and lean heavily “behind the scenes” on U.S. intelligence and the Pentagon in planning for an allegedly imminent explosion of cases.

The Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic: The Real Danger is “Agenda ID2020”
What is the infamous ID2020? It is an alliance of public-private partners, including UN agencies and civil society. It’s an electronic ID program that uses generalized vaccination as a platform for digital identity.

The Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic: The Real Danger is “Agenda ID2020”

FIXED!

WHO has most likely received orders from “above”, from those people who also manage Trump and the “leaders” (sic) of the European Union and her member countries, those who aim to control the world with force – the One World Order.

This has been on the drawing board for years. The final decision to go ahead NOW, was taken in January 2020 at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos – behind very much closed doors, of course. The Gates, GAVI (an association of vaccination-promoting pharmaceuticals), Rockefellers, Rothschilds et al, they are all behind this decision – the implementation of Agenda ID2020 – see below.

NATO and COVID-19: a Parasitical Disease in Europe

The decision to go-ahead with NATO’s biggest-ever war games in Europe at a time of heightened fears over the coronavirus sure raises questions about the military alliance’s stated purpose of maintaining security.

NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg has said the Defender-Europe 20 exercises will not be cancelled due to the flu-like disease which has now spread to every country in the European Union causing hundreds of deaths so far.

Fear-Based Manipulation: How Politicians, Marketers and the Media Create Panic to Control the Masses

“Neither a man nor a crowd nor a nation can be trusted to act humanely or to think sanely under the influence of a great fear.” ~Bertrand Russell

Fear. Without it we wouldn’t be able to survive.

Why? Because it’s the emotion that warns us about potential threats to our survival and urges us to protect ourselves from them.

Let me give you an example to illustrate what I mean.

Coronavirus End Game: The Economic Crisis & Roll Out of the New Digital Financial System

By Spiro Skouras

In this report, Spiro Skouras recaps the events leading up to the current global coronavirus outbreak, while looking ahead at the looming financial crisis and how the virus will likely be blamed, providing cover for the crimes committed by the central bankers.

Spiro also analyzes the potential outcomes of the current situation, which includes a major step towards a cashless society and global governance, as the current crisis seems to be playing right into the hands of the central bankers and the United Nations.

29 Bullet Points PROVING the Sun causes Global Warming, not CO2: by a GEOLOGIST, for a change (Dr Roger Higgs)

Dr Roger Higgs, Geoclastica Ltd, Technical Note 2019-11, 6th April 2019, amended 7th March 2020 on ResearchGate (LINK HERE).

We urgently need to expose the ‘CO2 = pollutant’ fallacy being forced upon your children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces by schools, universities, governments and mainstream media worldwide, and to denounce it in scrupulously truthful terms easily understood by the public, including those youngsters themselves.

Here are the 29 bullet points proving CO2’s innocence:

It’s Time to Cancel the U.S. Presidential Campaign

NWO dictatorship,here we come! Are you Lemmings or Human Beings?

Let’s get serious, America. It’s time to ask, during a time of plague, whether—and if so, in what form—democracy can continue as usual. The answer is likely to be disappointing. For the first time in the country’s history, the United States must contemplate canceling the Democratic and Republican national conventions and campaign rallies, and give serious consideration to arranging ways of organizing election day that don’t require in-person voting.

Last Train To Wuhan – II

They are using this to stampede you all into the NWO corral to be branded and culled. Use your brain. Quit acting like cattle,because to them,that is what you are!

This is the general rehearsal to see how far they can go, and right now they are pushing the envelope in order to introduce Corona 20/21 (2020-21) and that will probably be “even scarier.”

They will say this: Look we made it through this (Corona version 2019), we protected you with our draconian medieval measurements. We got rid of Corona19 exactly by doing what we did. So, this time: we have to come down even harder’ and people will believe that and willfully obey that, all thanking The System of Fear for taking away their freedom.

They know that it scares people even more that the Enemy (a virus) is invisible, so who do people take it out on?
People = The contaminator.

I have received many emails asking what my take is on the coronavirus.

Here are some thoughts. Some are based on what I see and some are based on dot-connecting the mainstream media coverage of the coronavirus.

The first thing we must understand is that this virus is not one directional, serving one agenda but instead quite a multitude of purposes. That is one of the reasons it is hard to pinpoint exactly. It’s always better to see in its aftermath: who or what benefits?

This Virus is manufactured. It is not in any way a crossover from animals to humans.

Wikileaks Whistleblower Chelsea Manning Attempts Suicide in Virginia Jail Cell

US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, 32, formerly known as Bradley Manning, has been held inside a jail cell at the Alexandria Detention Centre in Virginia since May 2019 for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

According to The Daily Mail, citing sources, Manning attempted to hang herself with a sheet inside the detention centre. The WikiLeaks whistleblower reportedly had a pulse when she was found inside her cell at around 1 p.m., according to the media report.

Coronavirus: why it’s not like the other fake epidemics

People are waking up. The NWO boys know it is now or never.

In today’s episode of virus fakery and population mind control, I examine the one important difference between this phony epidemic and its predecessors—West Nile, SARS, MERS, Swine Flu, Ebola, Zika.

Size matters. That’s the difference.

By which I mean, the size of the lie.In previous incarnations of “raging outbreaks,” the people controlling the operation (CDC, WHO, etc.) were content to let their propaganda fade out after a short time. And as quickly as the false threat was invented, it began to dissolve.

This time, however, the controllers feel sufficiently emboldened to pour fuel on the fire of the lie and build it into an illusion of conflagration.

That’s the long and the short of this story.

Demented War Criminal, quid pro quo, child-groping, hair-sniffing, gun-grabbing, pathological liar/plagiarist Biden + Sanders rolling over again = President Michelle Obama + VP Barak “The Savior” Obama (Deep State plan?)

77-year-old Joe Biden’s senility is being lampooned so effectively (here, here, here for just three examples) that he will be replaced by either Hillary Clinton (and here) or Michelle Obama.

I bet Obama because the Clintons have taken too much damage among awakening Americans, Michelle doesn’t have that baggage (although perhaps has a package), and Barak can claim his saving idea to “help the people” beside his spouse. This is why Obama and Clinton have not endorsed Joe Biden: they plan to endorse Michelle (Michael?).

That is the best Deep State plan I can imagine, unless something game-changes between now and the summer political conventions, such as mass arrests promised by Q (and here).

The Obama “Hail Mary pass” will happen after Biden’s elder, Bernie Sanders, has his progressive policies destroyed by lying sacks of spin corporate media for:

US now openly admits its goal in Syria is to make it 'difficult' for Moscow and Damascus to defeat terrorists

The State Department’s special envoy for Syria has just admitted that the US aims to defend jihadist militants in Idlib against ‘Russian aggression,’ proving once again that the swamp in Foggy Bottom is alive and well.
Russia and the Syrian government “are out to get a military victory in all of Syria,” Ambassador James Jeffrey told reporters on a conference call out of Brussels on Tuesday.

Our goal is to make it very difficult for them to do that by a variety of diplomatic, military, and other actions.

To illustrate these methods, Jeffrey cited the US threat to respond “in a very savage military way” against any chemical attacks, which he described as “a favorite tactic of the Syrian regime in making advances.” This is factually untrue, since the alleged attacks always happen after Syrian Army victories, as a pretext for US intervention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hearing the consistent hissings of US government lying is enough to make me physically ill; but Jeffries is near the competitive "gold" for describing the reality that the US hires, trains, arms, and funds terrorists, to keep the Russians and Syrian government from winning this war.

I would like to politely remind him, that payback for this kind of public lying, and the actions it can attempt to justify, can be a real bear.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Had Been Laying Low. That's Over.

First he ordered the detention of at least four senior members of his own royal family. The next day he plunged Saudi Arabia into a price war with Russia that sent energy and stock markets around the world into free fall.

For a while, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia had appeared to be living down his reputation for dangerous aggression.

Perhaps chastened by the blowback over his connection with the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the 34-year-old crown prince had kept a low profile for more than a year.

Now his new power plays are reviving debates in Western capitals about whether he is too rash to trust as a partner. His sudden, steep cut to the price of oil has rocked a global economy already at risk of falling into recession, threatened to burn through Saudi Arabia’s cash reserves and undermined his grandiose promises of new investments to lessen the kingdom’s dependence on oil.

Chelsea Manning hospitalized after suicide attempt

The attempt came just days before she was scheduled to appear in court over sanctions related to an investigation of Julian Assange.

The activist and whistleblower Chelsea Manning attempted suicide on Wednesday, her legal team said in a news release.

The statement came only a few days before Manning was scheduled to appear at a court hearing on whether sanctions imposed on her after she refused to comply with a grand jury investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should continue. Manning came to national attention after she leaked classified documents to WikiLeaks and was court-martialed for violating the Espionage Act.

Manning has claimed that the grand jury investigation was potentially open to abuse, writing in 2019 that it was “an effort to frighten journalists and publishers, who serve a crucial public good.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A note to all her jailors, and the powers wishing to keep her in prison; this woman will die before she breaks trust on Assange; making a martyr of her; any further isolation in jail, is probably the most stupid thing you could possibly do right now, which makes it imminent.

BP To Turn Smart Cities Into 24/7 Real-Time Listening Devices Using Fiber Optic Cables

A recent article in Offshore-Technology revealed that British Petroleum (BP) bought a majority interest in a fiber optic innovation company called Fotech.

Why would anyone care about BP buying Fotech?

Because Fotech "uses artificial intelligence and edge computing in its products, covering areas such as surveillance, transport management, cable monitoring and rail management."

Roughly translated, they use fiber optic cables to surveil vehicles, people, pipe lines, public transit, etc.

Fotech's "products" page reveals how they plan to turn smart cities into real-rime listening devices using "Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)."
