Central Bank Visions of Absolute Control
by MN Gordon
Posted October 16, 2021
There’s not much you can do in the year 2021 that doesn’t leave a digital trail. The collusion of big tech and big government has assured this.
Still, there does remain one simple way to elude the busybodies. In fact, one of the last ways to preserve some level of economic privacy is to pay with cash.
Because when you pay with cash the authorities cannot monitor and track what you buy. They don’t know if the cash you pulled from the ATM was stuffed in your mattress, or used to buy groceries or ammo or silver coins. What’s more, the authorities don’t like this.
The control freak central planners want to know what you are buying, and where and when you are buying. They also want to know how much you spend down to the very last cent. A digital dollar, coupled with the abolition of cash, would allow them to do this. Moreover, it would provide them the ability to have full control over every transaction you make. More…

They Will Reap What They Sowed
by James Quinn
Posted October 15, 2021
Their narrative is unraveling as everything they have avowed to be true is being revealed to be false. No matter how many truth tellers Facebook, Twitter and Youtube censor, de-platform, and suppress, there are many more stepping up and destroying their mendacious provably false plot line. Despite half the country, indoctrinated by the government education system to feel rather than think, still shuddering in fear despite being double jabbed, voluntarily locked down and masked, the global elite game plan is self-destructing under the weight of an avalanche of deceptions.
Despite an all out authoritarian fear campaign, to mandate these unproven dangerous gene therapies disguised as vaccines, orchestrated by our corrupt political class, bought off medical industry, Big Tech censorship media outlets, woke mega-corporations, cowardly universities, and left wing fake news propaganda outlets, more than 40% of the population is resisting this tyrannical medical apartheid.
The truth is cases peaked in early January at 260,000 per day. Miraculously, with virtually no one vaccinated, daily cases fell by 60% in the next month to 110,000 per day. By early March, with only a 10% national vaccination rate, daily cases fell by another 40% to 64,000, down 75% from the January peak. The vaccine had absolutely nothing to do with this decline in cases. By early summer this pandemic had lost its mojo. The threat of a return to normal was unthinkable to the power elite. More…

Bring All the Troops Home: Stop Policing the Globe and Put an End to Endless Wars
By John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead
Posted October 14, 2021
It’s time to bring all our troops home.
Bring them home from Somalia, Iraq and Syria. Bring them home from Germany, South Korea and Japan. Bring them home from Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Oman. Bring them home from Niger, Chad and Mali. Bring them home from Turkey, the Philippines, and northern Australia. It’s not enough to pull American troops out of Afghanistan, America’s longest, bloodiest and most expensive war to date.
It’s time that we stop policing the globe, stop occupying other countries, and stop waging endless wars.
America’s military forces aren’t being deployed abroad to protect our freedoms here at home. Rather, they’re being used to guard oil fields, build foreign infrastructure and protect the financial interests of the corporate elite. In fact, the United States military spends about $81 billion a year just to protect oil supplies around the world.
The reach of America’s military empire includes close to 800 bases in as many as 160 countries, operated at a cost of more than $156 billion annually. As Vine reports, “Even US military resorts and recreation areas in places like the Bavarian Alps and Seoul, South Korea, are bases of a kind. Worldwide, the military runs more than 170 golf courses.”
This is how a military empire occupies the globe. More…
US Agencies’ Planned Expansion of Facial Recognition
by Julia Conley
Posted October 13, 2021
Digital rights advocates reacted harshly last month to an internal U.S. government report detailing how 10 federal agencies have plans to greatly expand their reliance on facial recognition in the years ahead.
The Government Accountability Office surveyed federal agencies and found that 10 have specific plans to increase their use of the technology by 2023 — surveilling people for numerous reasons including to identify criminal suspects, track government employees’ level of alertness, and match faces of people on government property with names on watch lists.
The report (pdf) was released as lawmakers face pressure to pass legislation to limit the use of facial recognition technology by the government and law enforcement agencies.
Sens. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Rand Paul (D-KY) introduced the Fourth Amendment Is Not for Sale Act in April to prevent agencies from using “illegitimately obtained” biometric data, such as photos from the software company Clearview AI. The company has scraped billions of photos from social media platforms without approval and is currently used by hundreds of police departments across the United States. More…
Secretive CBP Counterterrorism Teams Interrogated 180,000 U.S. Citizens Over Two-Year Period
by Melissa del Bosque
Posted October 12, 2021
More than four years have passed since Aaron Gach, a sculptor and installation artist, was detained at San Francisco International Airport. He was interrogated by U.S. border agents, and his cellphone was searched. He still doesn’t know why. “It has absolutely had a chilling effect on myself and my art practice,” he said. “They wouldn’t tell me why I was stopped or why I was detained.”
Gach is one of tens of thousands of Americans caught up in an effort by the Department of Homeland Security to collect personal information about travelers at land borders and airports. To further this goal, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the DHS agency responsible for policing America’s borders, relies on secretive units called Tactical Terrorism Response Teams, documents from an ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit reveal.
Between 2017 and 2019, the documents show, the units detained and interrogated more than 600,000 travelers — about a third of them U.S. citizens. Of those detained, more than 8,000 foreign visitors with legal travel documents were denied entry to the United States. A handful of U.S. citizens were also prevented from entering the country, which civil liberties advocates say violated their rights. Lower court and Supreme Court rulings affirm the constitutional right of U.S. citizens to freedom of movement and the ability to enter and leave the country. More…

The Anonymous Executioners of the Corporate State
by Chris Hedges
Posted October 11, 2021
Imprisoning the David to Chevron’s Goliath is the latest outrage by a U.S. judiciary now engineered to favor the interests of capital. Judge Loretta Preska, an adviser to the conservative Federalist Society, to which Chevron is a major donor, sentenced human rights attorney and Chevron nemesis Steven Donziger to six months in prison Friday for misdemeanor contempt of court after he had already spent 787 days under house arrest in New York.
Donziger, his lawyers have pointed out, is the first person under U.S. law charged with a “B” misdemeanor to be placed on home confinement, prior to trial, with an ankle monitor.
He is the first person charged with any misdemeanor to be held under home confinement for over two years.
He is the first attorney ever to be charged with criminal contempt over a discovery dispute in a civil case where the attorney went into voluntary contempt to pursue an appeal.
He is the first person to be prosecuted under Rule 42 (criminal contempt) by a private prosecutor with financial ties to the entity and industry that was a litigant in the underlying civil dispute that gave rise to the orders.
He is the first person tried by a private prosecutor who had ex parte communications with the charging judge while that judge remained (and remains) unrecused on the criminal case. More…
What we are witnessing is the capture of the courts and law schools by corporate power, where attorneys and judges are lucrative cogs in the corporate wheel. The system has law school curriculums that are built around corporate law, and corporate power, and corporate perpetration, and corporate defense.
If Chevron and its 60 law firms and over 2000 lawyers succeeds in stifling lawsuits against corporate malfeasance using the judicial system as their tool, what would be your recourse should a corporation poison your local water supply? What kind of society will our children inherit once the corporations have total control of the judiciary?
David Martin presents hard evidence showing COVID-19 is a man-made bioweapon
By James Bailey
Posted October 11, 2021
Since 1999, Dr. Martin has been actively tracking patent applications and approvals for the purpose of identifying suspicious activity. In the 94-minute video shown below, he shares the findings from his research regarding the laboratory development of a pathogenic coronavirus that started in 1999 and was released initially upon human populations in the SARS CoV-1 in 2002-2003, then again in MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome in 2012, and then again in SARS CoV-2 which was renamed COVID-19, as shown below with evidence from the primary development lab in Wuhan China.
“Historically, coronaviruses have not been associated with significant illnesses in humans. So how is it that suddenly in 2002 going into 2003 that we have this magical alteration in beta corona viruses that suddenly makes them lethal?”
Three years before we have the first SARS outbreak (in 2002-2003, called SARS1) we have researchers who are working on amplifying the pathogenicity of the things that make coronavirus extremely harmful to the human system. Now, that feels like that should invoke in at least one or two people a set of questions, which is, how is it that we went for allegedly whatever our evolutionary time frame is where we were coexisting with coronaviruses and suddenly we started manipulating them with recombinant technology in 1999, 2000, 2001, and suddenly nature figures out a way to make these things also highly pathogenetic, in 2002 and 2003, using the exact same mechanism that we’ve done in the lab. Possible? Yes. Plausible? Not a chance. More…
Ben Rhodes’ Book Proves Obama Officials’ Lies, and His Own, About Edward Snowden and Russia
by Glenn Greenwald
Posted October 10, 2021
It is hard to overstate the sociopathy of US national security officials: their casual willingness to blatantly lie about the gravest matters is limitless.
Ever since Edward Snowden received asylum from Russia in 2013, Obama officials have repeatedly maligned his motives and patriotism by citing his “choice” to take up residence there. It has long been clear that this narrative was a lie: Snowden, after meeting with journalists in Hong Kong, intended only to transit through Moscow and then Havana on his way to seek asylum in Latin America. He was purposely prevented from leaving Russia — trapped in the Moscow airport — by the very Obama officials who then cynically weaponized his presence there to imply he was a civil-liberties hypocrite for “choosing” to live in such a repressive country or, even worse, a Kremlin agent or Russian spy.
But now we have absolute, definitive proof that Snowden never intended to stay in Russia but was deliberately prevented from leaving by the same Obama officials who exploited the predicament which they created. The proof was supplied unintentionally in the memoir of one of Obama’s senior national security advisers, Ben Rhodes, entitled The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House. It is hard to overstate how dispositively Rhodes’ own book proves that Obama officials generally, and Rhodes specifically, lied blatantly and cavalierly to the public about what happened: a level of sustained and conscious lying that can be explained only by sociopathy.

COVID-19 and the Shadowy “Trusted News Initiative”
By Elizabeth Woodworth
Posted October 9, 2021
What do the inventor of mRNA technology; the lead author of the most downloaded paper on Covid-19 in the American Journal of Medicine; a former editor of the American Journal of Epidemiology; renowned epidemiologists at Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford; and France’s leading microbiologist – have in common? They have all been censored by a repressive media network that most people have never heard of. This network has outrageously conceived and conveyed a “monopoly of legitimate information.”[i]
Exposing this uncanny censorship of eminent voices is especially vital to the fate of children and youth, who are being aggressively targeted for low-benefit, sometimes lethal, inoculations.
Since early in the COVID-19 pandemic, which according to the World Health Organization kills only 0.23% of those infected[ii], enormous fear and panic have been fuelled by the hourly drumbeat of a “one-voice” media. An international process of editorial standardization has delivered unprecedented news coverage of the monopolized message:
- The pandemic threatens the survival of all humanity
- There is no therapy to cure the sick
- It is necessary to confine the whole population, and
- The delivery will come only from a vaccine.[iii]
Many people have been dismayed by the singularity of this propaganda, and how it could possibly have been achieved. That is the subject of this study. More…
Bringing to Consciousness America’s Unconscious Shadows
by Marianne Williamson
Posted October 8, 2021
America is like an alcoholic family, in which no one is really saying what’s going on, the children are registering all the unprocessed realities but don’t know what to do with them, and anyone who speaks up and tells the truth is likely to be severely punished.
We can’t send the country to rehab, but we can at least try to be honest with ourselves about what’s happening. And that is no small deal. As more and more Americans bring to consciousness the unconscious shadows of our national identity, the country will begin to heal.
A lot of it is stuff we’ve all heard, but still it’s worth going over to make sure our thinking is aligned with what’s true.
In 1776, 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, and the document was an extraordinary statement of human possibility. It was a gigantic step forward for the human race not only politically but also spiritually. For it posited the notion – what would have been considered until then a preposterous perspective – that God created all men equal. More…
