After JPMorgan Chase Admits to Its 4th and 5th Felony Charge, Its Board Gives a $50 Million Bonus to Its CEO, Jamie Dimon

Jamie Dimon, CEO of 5 felony count bankThe unthinkable is happening with alarming regularity at the Frankenbank JPMorgan Chase. Over the last seven years, with Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon at the helm, JPMorgan Chase has managed to do what no other federally-insured American bank has managed to do in the history of banking in the United States. The bank has admitted to five separate felony counts brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, while regulators took no action to remove the Board of Directors or Jamie Dimon.

Now, once again, the outrageous hubris of this Board is on display. Just last fall the bank forked over $920 million of shareholders money to settle its fourth and fifth felony counts brought by the Department of Justice, this time for rigging the precious metals and U.S. Treasury market. Now, in the dog days of summer, rarely a time for bonuses on Wall Street, the JPMorgan Chase board announced on July 20 that it is giving Dimon 1.5 million stock options which, according to a specialist cited at Bloomberg News, have a total value of $50 million on paper.

Why Is There Such Reluctance to Discuss Natural Immunity?
by Jon Sanders
Posted July 28, 2021

things just are not quite as they appear to beOver the past 15 months, the litany of Experts’ True Facts and Science regarding various aspects of SARS-CoV-2 has changed more often than the starting lineup of a bad minor league ball club. Covid-19 is spread by droplets, especially from asymptomatic people, until one day it was airborne all along and people who weren’t sick in all likelihood weren’t even sick. Stay at home, you’re safer indoors, even stay away from parks and beaches; well, actually, outdoors is the place to be. Masks don’t work against viruses and are actually unhealthy to wear if you’re not sick, then suddenly they did work and without one you might as well be shooting people.

Everyone knows and PolitiFact verified that the virus couldn’t have been created in the prominent infectious disease lab doing gain-of-function research on coronaviruses in bats coincidentally at Covid Ground Zero until, one day, PolitiFact had to retract the entire “Pants on Fire!” article. And so forth.

Unfortunately, information about herd immunity has also not been immune to this kind of meddling. Until recent months, people readily understood that active immunity came about either by natural immunity or vaccine-induced immunity. Natural immunity comes from battling and defeating an actual infection, then having your immune system primed for the rest of your life to fight it off if it ever shows up again. This immunity is achieved at a sometimes very high personal price. More…

People Who Adopt These 7 Verbal Habits in 2021 Have Very High Emotional Intelligence
By Bill Murphy Jr.
Posted July 27, 2021

emotional intelligenceIf there’s one area of self-improvement readers have told me they’d like to work on during 2021, it’s emotional intelligence. So, here are some simple verbal habits designed to do exactly that.

They’re easy, really: just a series of short phrases to memorize that will improve your conversations and make it more likely you’ll achieve your goals with others this year.

“Thanks. I’ll check in tomorrow.”

You don’t have to react right away, in other words.

Now, this doesn’t have to be so confrontational. Maybe you’re thinking about how to respond to a client who emails you at 4 p.m. to express second thoughts about an order. Maybe it’s a business partner who lets you know she doesn’t like the marketing materials you’ve spent the better part of a week working on.

So? Wait a day. Wait half a day. In short, wait however long you need in order to take control of your emotions, so that they can be a tool for you to use, not a challenge to overcome. More…

3 Giant Financial Companies That The Global Elite Use To Control 88% Of The Corporations Listed On The S&P 500

3 Giant Financial Companies That The Global Elite Use To Control 88% Of The Corporations Listed On The S&P 500

Posted July 26, 2021

financial tyranny threatens us allThere is no question that large corporations absolutely dominate our society today. They control what we eat, they control what we watch on television, they own most of the stores that we shop at, they provide the energy that our nation depends upon, and they make almost all of the products that we use. Tens of millions of Americans make a living by serving these colossal firms, and at this point some of the biggest corporations are larger than many small countries. But of course the corporations aren’t the top of the food chain. They have owners, and there are 3 giant financial companies that the global elite use to control 88 percent of the corporations that are currently listed on the S&P 500.

The three financial companies that I am talking about are BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street.

We need to start talking a lot more about “corporate tyranny”. Because even though governmental entities may still claim to protect “liberties” and “freedoms”, the truth is that those that reject the culture that is being pushed on them by the global elite will be increasingly marginalized on the fringes of society.

Infertility Gene in GMO Corn

Infertility Gene in GMO Corn

rising infertilityWould you believe that the United States is the only industrialized country in the world that does not permit the labeling of GMOs for either fresh or processed foods? However, 14 states have legislation introduced regarding GMO labeling that seems to be going nowhere fast.

Perhaps the most insidious aspect of GMO crop technology is the fact that GM seeds and plants have been programmed to withstand inordinate amounts of herbicide spraying during the growing season. Herbicide spraying contaminates crops with more pesticides than ever before due to crop abilities to withstand pesticide saturation. We know the dramatic health problems herbicides and pesticides cause, but we really don’t know the health problems GMOs will cause. However, the CRIIGEN rat study confirms cancerous tumors! We do know GMOs are endocrine disruptors; they produce new protein coatings that have never been seen, plus mutations occur in the gene splicing process. What will that cause?

However, the most insidious of all, I think, is the Epicyte gene patented in 2001, which can prevent human conception. It was ‘contraceptive corn’ developed by the biotech company Epicyte, which Monsanto and DuPont bought out and subsequently commercialized the Epicyte gene. What that gene does is creates human antibodies that attack sperm. More…

Eisenhower rejected military chiefs’ demand for nuclear war on China, classified account of ’58 Taiwan Strait crisis reveals
by Gareth Porter
Posted July 24, 2021

US military wanted nuclear war with ChinaA previously censored account of the 1958 Taiwan Strait crisis that was sponsored by the Pentagon has been published in full by the leaker of the Pentagon Papers, Daniel Ellsberg. The report provides a hair-raising portrait of a reckless US military leadership relentlessly pressing President Dwight Eisenhower for the authority to carry out nuclear attacks on communist China.

After holding the still-classified version of the account in his possession for fifty years, Ellsberg said he decided to release it because of the growing threat of US war with China over Taiwan, and the danger that such a conflict could escalate into a nuclear exchange.

A May 22 New York Times report on the account offered only general details of the role the US Joint Chiefs of Staff played in the run-up to the 1958 Taiwan crisis. However, it is now clear from the original highly classified documents as well as other evidence now available that from the beginning, the Joint Chiefs aimed first and foremost to exploit the tensions to carry out nuclear strikes against Chinese nuclear military targets deep in highly-populated areas.

Minnesota Police Expected Pipeline Budget Boost to Fund New Weapons

Minnesota Police Expected Pipeline Budget Boost to Fund New Weapons

police receiving windfall from pipeline corporationThe same cops tasked with policing resistance to pipelines anticipate financial benefits from oil companies moving into their areas.

Shanai Matteson, who is from Aitkin County and currently lives at a pipeline resistance camp in the area, said that she’s seen police officers escorting Enbridge trucks and machinery as well as sitting with pipeline security at construction sites. “How can we pretend this is a neutral response?” she said. “They are expecting some kind of benefit longterm from the pipeline. To me that says a lot about their motivations for protecting Enbridge and protecting their worksites.”

“They clearly have a belief or awareness that there is a pot of gold should they succeed in stopping the water protectors from being able to stop Line 3,” said Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund’s Center for Protest Law and Litigation and an attorney representing water protectors. “This deputy is obviously looking to line the county sheriff’s armory with this money.” More…

The facts:
Police who are using their public positions to protect private interests and are receiving financial benefits from these same private interests.

Reflect On:
Are these police forces not acting as defacto mercenaries for private financial interests under the cover provided by being “public servants”?
Isn’t this sort of merger of corporate and state not the very definition of fascism?

If You Want Grandchildren, Don’t Feed Your Kids Commercial Corn

epicyte gene causes sterlityIn 2001, Epicyte, a California bio-engineering company, revealed that it had created spermicidal GM (Genetically Modified) corn. So how do you know if you have consumed this fertility-destroying corn? You don’t…because products containing GM corn aren’t labeled with a warning.

According to research cited by Whole Foods Market, in 2011, 88% of the commercial corn was GM modified. Does all 88% of corn have this Epicyte gene? We really don’t know. And that’s a problem. But if someone I loved was trying for a pregnancy (male AND female), I’d say just avoid anything with corn in it unless you know it’s grown from an “Heirloom Seed”.

But the problem doesn’t end with the Epicyte Spermicidal gene that man has shoved into the DNA of the corn. There are two other major GMO gene villains in most commercial corn: More…

Biden’s American Rescue Plan can help rescue NJ’s public bank

Biden’s American Rescue Plan can help rescue NJ’s public bank

Web of DebtThe state of New Jersey, its 21 county governments and 565 localities hold billions of public monies in private banks. These funds are managed by commercial banks and have been used to bankroll destructive enterprises such as private prisons, immigrant detention centers, assault weapon manufacturers, fossil-fuel infrastructure and additional properties that prioritize profit over ethical and moral decision-making. Some of these institutions also engaged in risky and fraudulent practices that collapsed the global markets during the 2008 financial crisis, particularly in the mortgage derivatives segment.

Now New Jersey has an opportunity to build an alternative banking operation through locally controlled, ethically, socially and environmentally responsible public banks that will permit cities and counties to recapture public dollars and have a say over community financing.

The idea of creating this type of public entity for New Jersey was first proposed as a campaign promise by then gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy in 2017, but the only step that has been taken toward achieving that goal was a 2019 executive order that created and appointed a 14-member implementation board. With a large influx of over $10 billion from American Rescue Plan allocations coming to the state over the next two years, it is now time to successfully implement this plan by taking advantage of this immediate cash inflow — the necessary start-up liquidity required to establish the banking enterprise.

This is Why Big Pharma Doesn’t Want Covid to End

big pharma profitsI know it sounds like conspiracy theory. But you should know it, and know it’s true. Big Pharma seems to be betting that Covid will go permanent, so its profits go through the roof, and makes one of the biggest fortunes in human history.

You doubt me, probably, and I don’t blame you — who could really be that cynical? It’s one thing to profiteer off a pandemic — but permanently? Come on. That’s paranoid!

So don’t take it from me. Take it from the horse’s mouth.

“In early February, Pfizer CFO Frank D’Amelio described Pfizer’s $19.50-per-dose price as ‘pandemic pricing’ and ‘that’s not a normal price like we typically get for a vaccine, $150, $175 per dose.’”

D’Amelio said later in the same call, “Now let’s go beyond a pandemic-pricing environment, the environment we’re currently in. Obviously, we’re going to get more on price. And clearly, to your point, the more volume we put through our factories, the lower unit cost will become. So clearly, there’s a significant opportunity for those margins to improve once we get beyond the pandemic environment that we’re in.” More…

same puppet master pulling strings on both sides

Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.

main stream media propaganda

It is obvious that the US government is destroying Assange to signal to journalists the consequences of publishing information. It is therefore also obvious that any journalist who fails to use whatever platform they have to speak out against Assange’s persecution has no intention of ever publishing anything that the US government doesn’t want published. Their silence on or support for what is being done to this man can and should be taken as an admission that they are nothing other than state propagandists.
