Jeremiah 14:14-16 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

14 Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I have not sent them, neither did I command them, neither spake I unto them, but they prophesy unto you a false vision, and divination, and vanity, and deceitfulness of their own heart.

15 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Concerning the prophets that prophesy in my Name, whom I have not sent, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land, by sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

16 And the people to whom these prophets do prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, because of the famine, and the sword, and there shall be none to bury them: both they and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on
a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of
it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people
don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in
Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the
country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to
drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist
dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no
voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the
country to danger. It works the same in any country."

The NWO desires a disarmed and ignorant populace. You are grist for their coming mill. Heed the warnings while you can. This is the rise of the anti-Christ system. First they come for the guns. Then they come for your rights. After they convince you they are privileges allowed by the oligarchy, they will take them away. Then the terror of the system will commence to take away the former citizens reduced to slave status. You will most likely be brutalized at the end of the process. For being naive enough to let it happen, you deserve that much. You learn the forest or become its fertilizer. Some call it evolution. Some call it survival of the fittest. The signs are clear. 

Marshall McLuhan: Is Satan the prince of the airwaves?

"Electric information environments, being utterly ethereal, foster the illusion of the world as a spiritual substance. It is now a reasonable facsimile of the mystical body, a blatant manifestation of the Anti-Christ. After all, the Prince of this World is a very great electric engineer."

McLuhan letters 1969


We are an existence that is under control of a superior force. In preparation to interview the late Stanton Friedman, I read the only Roswell book I had The Day After Roswell. My worldview was completely changed. The author Col Philip Corso dealt with the Roswell file. He said the craft was a time machine. He said the bipedal creatures were GM robots. He further stated the life was the silicon based wafer. He said we would spread it around the world like Ebola. We have. He added the world would be controlled by a giant computer brain. It is the web.


For those who remain blissfully unaware there is a new age dawning. Some call it the age of Aquarius. I call it the end of the biblical age. There is a race on for a newer, more advanced form of life. It is called artificial intelligence (AI). it can be housed in any form, but the humanoid form might be the most seductive to us because it allows for the age old biblical tenets of the resurrected body that offers eternal life.

I have researched and determined in The War of the Multiverse that there are other life forms about us. They go back to Eden as the two trees of life and knowledge. The tree of life is the carbon based God created form. Its bots are the DNA and RNA of creation. They self replicate in ways we still do not adequately understand. The soul enters in and most likely exits upon death. The body is consumed by our Eden and at the time of conception we are reintroduced perhaps in a perpetual, eternal life cycle. Many including myself have memories of past lives. They fade with the years as the most recent becomes manifest. The church developed an industry based on the fear of death to market those words from long ago into a thriving business model. What could be a better draw than offering us eternal life?

Naomi Wolf, We're Now in the Last Stage of a Tyrannical Takeover

Posted by George Freund on June 20, 2022 at 9:55 AM

A life long anti gun leftist is learning to shoot. She advises all Americans to prepare for a significant series of events in November. Sentinels for the truth will be rounded up and 'disappeared' in age old fashion. Avoid digital technology. Go with analog or earlier. Most people could never comprehend being in a war much less losing one and being at the mercy of a tyrannical regime. Patiently waiting for your turn to be dragged away and made to dig your own grave is not a defense strategy. Denial is your worst weakness. This is a total grasp for power and the usurpation of our species. There is no compromise solution. It is all or nothing.


In strict military parlance, you are an enemy combatant if you're not willing to submit to slavery or genocide. In any of those roles, you will understand, but it will be far too late. Ignorance is the one crime still punishable by death. However, you are empowered as your own judge and jury to alter your fate. That means you must call to order your own impartial court. That is a tall order for most. Neurons may spark, but they are seldom connected.


Naomi Wolf, We’re Now in the Last Stage of a Tyrannical Takeover

June 19, 2022 James Fetzerblog

Joseph Mercola



There are 10 steps that leaders who want to crush a democracy will always take. We are now in Step 10, and traitors are dissolving the boundaries and sovereignty of the United States. The same is also taking place in other nations

The COVID pandemic was used to strip us of our liberties and to conceptually terraform America into being ready to accept a CCP-style World Economic Forum-guided post-humane and post-constitutional world

We are at war, and the federal government, institutions and agencies of various kinds, and the media, have all been weaponized against the public

Hopelessness leads to inaction, and without action, we’re guaranteed to lose everything. The one thing the technocrats’ technology cannot compete with is the analog world — analog devices and in-person relationships — so that’s where our greatest strength lies

General guidance on how to prepare for near-future events, and what is needed for survival and success in the long term are addressed


Repeat guest Naomi Wolf is the author of “The End of America,” published in 2007, and “The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, COVID-19 and the War Against the Human,” which was released at the end of May 2022. In our previous interview, we discussed how “The End of America” dovetailed with current pandemic events. (You can download the first and last chapters for free on the publisher’s website,


Here, we review what lies ahead if we don’t challenge and stand firm against the global control agenda. It’s really important to realize that the progression toward tyranny and loss of freedom is neither new nor accidental — and really has nothing to do with COVID or biosecurity per se.


These are just convenient justifications for the unjustifiable. No, this is a comprehensive plan for a global takeover that’s been in the works for many decades. What we’re seeing now is just the final implementation.


“I wrote ‘The End of America’ when I saw that issues around terrorism and the terror threat post-9/11 were being used in such a way as to hype fear and strip us of our civil liberties,” Wolf says. “There are 10 steps to fascism that leaders who want to crush a democracy will always take. They’re the same 10 steps whether the leaders are on the left or on the right. It really doesn’t matter.


So, I looked at history at different times and places in which a robust democracy was crushed. You start with invoking a terrifying threat. It can be a real threat, but it’s hyped. You go on to surveil citizens. You create militia groups unaccountable to the rule of law.


You create a Gulag. You start to demonize whistleblowers and critics. You start to call dissent, treason or espionage or subversion. And then you get to Step 10, which is martial law, declaring emergency law. Well, here we are at Step 10.”


The Race Toward a Post-Humane World


In the summer of 2020, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared residents could not have more than six people in their homes. As noted by Wolf, this is a massive and very clear violation of the First and Fourth Amendments — the right to privacy and the right to assembly.


That was the moment when Wolf knew for sure that the lockdowns had nothing to do with a public health emergency. That’s when she knew we were right smack dab in the middle of Step 10.


“We were seeing a wholesale race to exploit what was messaged as a global pandemic in such a way as to strip us of our remaining liberties and to terraform America, conceptually, into being ready to accept a CCP-style World Economic Forum-guided post-humane and post-constitutional world,” she says.


“And that’s only escalated. So, [in ‘The Bodies of Others’] I walk the reader through the money flow. I show how bad actors ranging from the World Economic Forum, to the Chinese Communist Party, to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and of course, to big tech companies, massaged pandemic policy in various ways to suit their ends.


I show how millions are flowing to big tech companies especially, as a result of completely medically unnecessary pandemic policies. And finally, I explain — speaking as a tech CEO, which I am now — that what the tech companies are driven by is that human beings in human space, having human conversations with human smiles and touch, are a competition that they cannot compete with.


So, a lot of the policies that were rolled out, as related to a public health emergency, really serve to kill off that human advantage and transfer assets to big tech companies.”


Yes, We Are at War


Part of Step 10 is the proposed World Health Organization Pandemic Treaty, which would give the WHO unbridled privilege to declare an emergency and then have total authority to dictate the global response, even if that response contradicts the constitutional rights of a member state. And, while it may not strike most people as an act of war, it is in fact part of the global war effort against the public, the citizens of the world.


“Indeed, that’s what’s happening,” Wolf says. “And the fact that Americans have not been able to see this treaty easily to lobby their representatives … that’s just an example of why these metanational treaties are so extraordinarily dangerous …


I wish people would wake up sooner, honestly. I’ve been warning people for about six months that a war is being waged against us here in the United States. We are at war, even though we think we’re not. We don’t see bullets flying.


This is a new kind of war, and it’s a war that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has developed very skillfully. Stalinists also developed it skillfully. It’s never been done to us like this before, but look at the big picture please. Our southern border is open. Hundreds of thousands of people are pouring in.


I’m in favor of legal immigration. I’m the daughter of immigrants. However, what’s happening, according to my sources, is that fighting-age men from Ukraine and Afghanistan are pouring in. Millions of dollars in state-of-the-art equipment — night vision goggles, military equipment — vanished in Afghanistan. We didn’t recover it.


Where is it? Who knows? But these are men who are going all over the country, they’re not being identified. Their destinations are not identified. They could be put in place. We are very vulnerable. And then, north of us, our historically peaceful neighbor, Canada, their World Economic Forum puppet, Justin Trudeau, declared martial law for about 24 hours when the truckers were protesting in Ontario.


What you saw there was unidentified, very mercenary looking — were they police? Were they soldiers? Very hard to tell because they weren’t identified, which is characteristic of an unaccountable mercenary. And they were very violent toward peaceful, lawful Canadian protestors.


You saw the same black-clad, unidentifiable, super fit looking mercenaries … in France. When there were protests against the Green Pass, there was dramatic violence, shocking scenes, by these unidentifiable mercenaries.”


Emergency Powers Are Being Used as a Weapon of War


As noted by Wolf, all the pieces of the “emergency” also point in an obvious direction. In April 2022, President Biden extended emergency law for the eighth time, and this time he didn’t even pretend that it was related to a public health emergency. He said it was due to instability in Iraq. By extending his emergency powers, he can funnel millions of dollars, without accountability, into the Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS).


“He’s basically weaponizing HHS, all the way down to boards of health, which have been weaponized during the pandemic,” Wolf says. “So, we are at Step 10. This is Step 10.


Nothing legally prevents, right now, here in New York state, the governor from doing what she’s trying to do, which is to create quarantine facilities and have a regulation to drag people off to open-ended quarantine if they’re exposed to a bloodborne pathogen.


We narrowly defeated a similar regulation proposal in Washington state. But with the World Health Organization treaty, they will have that right. Nothing will stop them from having mercenaries that I can’t identify show up at the end of my driveway and say, ‘Naomi Wolf, you’re a public health threat.’ And the reason they can do this, also, is that this messaging is focusing on mental health too.


So, if you fold mental health into public health, then you get a rationale to say, ‘Oh, dissent is a form of craziness,’ the way that it’s framed in, for instance, communist China. So, we are dissolving sovereignty all over the world if the WHO treaty is signed. It’s absolutely terrifying. We need to wake up and realize that this war is being waged against us. Traitors are dissolving the boundaries of our nation.”


Who Are the Perpetrators?


I suspect the perpetrators of this war are the global cabal that embraces technocracy and transhumanism. Wolf believes perpetrators fall into several different camps.


“You were way ahead of the curve in identifying how serious this was, and the sources from which it would emanate. But I don’t see them as having no light between them. I see that they’re loosely operating in concert. Certainly, technocrats. Big Tech is an alliance of technocrats. Certainly, the World Economic Forum …


Big Pharma isn’t even the main driver, in my judgment, as powerful and scary as it is. I think they’re using pharma as a global weapon.


So, these entities — and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other bad nonprofits like the EcoHealth Alliance, which is at the center of everything, and other aligned bad nonprofits like the Committee for State and Territorial Epidemiologists — these third-party nonprofits allow government agencies like the CDC to offshore their criminality.


For instance, the CDC contracted with these third parties to manage their data. My book shows how there’s been a consistent mismanagement or manipulation of data around the pandemic to the extent that one of my chapters is called ‘The Unverifiable Pandemic.’


All of these bad actors are loosely aligned. They’re talking to each other. Amazon, Google and Microsoft benefit from the pandemic. Google owns Baseline, which you have to sign in to, to get a CVS PCR test. Microsoft builds the vaccine passports. Bill Gates is invested in the vaccines. I just did a bombshell interview with RFK Jr. in which he said all of the big tech companies are invested in vaccines.


It’s a pretty fully fleshed out methodology that involves Big Tech, the CCP, the World Economic Forum, and now the WHO as a delivery method, to create a one world matrix in which nation states are meaningless, parliaments and congresses are meaningless, and all of us are surveilled, tracked and regularly injected or forced to take whatever pill or treatment they want us to take in such a way as to make freedom a thing of the past.


And also in such a way as to harvest all of our data continually, which is gold for tech companies.”


No Respect for Human Life


Ultimately, the perpetrators of this global war view human beings as a resource fit for harvest. Everything about us is up for grabs, including our DNA. Wolf’s husband, Brian O’Shea, a highly-trained investigator who spent 12 years in military intelligence and the Special Forces, has evidence showing that by 2049, China wants to be the repository of all the world’s DNA — the DNA of every human on the planet.


It’s been rumored that the COVID nasal swabs may be sent back to a DNA repository in China. No one knows where they go, really. If this is true, what’s the danger? Well, for starters, organ trafficking is a lucrative business in China, and now, startups are popping up everywhere to assess the health of your organs. Is it inconceivable to think they might be compiling databanks on potential organ sources?


“These people have no respect for human life,” Wolf says. “I think these people will stop at nothing … I mean there are new laws that have been passed that allow a newborn to be euthanized within a month after birth.”


We Live in Unprecedented Times


According to professor Mattias Desmet, totalitarian regimes inevitably always self-destruct. Because of this, one might be tempted to think that future “doomsday” predictions won’t materialize, as the system can’t survive long-term. However, we also must remember that by the time totalitarian regimes collapse, they’ve already killed tens of millions, and none of the previous ones had the technological advantages of the current system.


The totalitarian regime being erected now could easily wipe out most of humanity before its ultimate demise. Wolf also questions whether some of the previous totalitarian regimes actually did collapse and die out. Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, for example, is a direct heir of Nazi eugenicists, and Bill and Melinda Gates are still carrying out Nazi eugenicists approaches.


Everywhere we look today, we see the Nazi mentality at work behind the scenes. So, the ideology that drove the Nazi regime did not vanish. It simply went underground. Wolf comments:


“The way the World Economic Forum is trying to manage human beings descends from Nazism. And, as I’ve said elsewhere, I’m the granddaughter of woman who lost nine brothers and sisters to Nazis. So, I don’t say this slightly, and don’t take this out of context, but Nazism was too good an idea for it to be killed off in 1945, meaning it was too effective.


We’re [now] seeing Nazi approaches to human life. The creation of a two-tier society, vaccinated vs. unvaccinated, life vs. unworthy of life. I’ve got a section in my book looking at the history of restrictions and how, always, restrictions on assembly, restrictions on commerce, restrictions on where Native Americans could travel, how they could trade, those always proceed theft of assets.


That’s what’s happening now to the whole world with lockdowns. All of humanity was restricted in advance of a massive theft of their assets. And that’s going to continue unless we resist it. But no, I don’t agree that totalitarian regimes self-destruct.


First of all, in the 20th century, they collapsed after massive death, starvation, and upheaval and suffering. But second of all, the holy Roman empire lasted for 800 years, and it was pretty totalitarian. They crucified people. It was pretty totalitarian.


Living in Palestine in Jesus’ time, under the occupation of the Romans, that lasted for centuries. So, sure, if we’ve look 500 years or 800 years into the future, maybe the global totalitarianism that’s being erected right now will have collapsed, but I don’t think we should relax because of that.


There is another distinguishing factor that we have to take into account with this erection of totalitarianism globally compared with those in the past, and that’s the role of artificial intelligence. AI now has the capability to tell the same story at the same time, around the world, at a scale that no human propagandists could ever match.


AI can take inputs from India about how people are receiving a propaganda message and adjust it. Or it can take inputs from people’s behavior in real time, or the reactions on social media and adjust it. And people haven’t even been informed about the extent to which AI can even tweak existing journalism.


For instance, every time you read the word ‘Delta variant,’ you would see in front of it the words ‘highly transmissible.’ And every time you saw the word ‘myocarditis,’ you would see in front of it, ‘extremely rare.’ That’s AI, and that’s happening all over the world with virtually all flows of communications.


So, people can be propagandized … They can be hypnotized and lied to and an artificial reality could be created for them, conceptually, at a much more sophisticated level than human beings have ever accomplished.”


The One Thing the Technocrats Cannot Compete With


While the situation may seem hopeless, we must not give up hope, because hopelessness leads to inaction, and then we are guaranteed to lose everything. The one thing the technocrats’ technology cannot compete with is the humane analog world, so that’s where our greatest strength lies.


For example, no one can hack or surveil an in-person assembly, provided you don’t have your cell phones on you. So, get into the habit of carrying your phone in a faraday bag, or leave it at home. Physical book stores, physical libraries, physical houses of worship, physical money — none of those can be surveilled or tracked. Combustion engine cars as opposed to electric cars also cannot be tracked as easily or thoroughly.


“I tell people to get off of digital technology,” Wolf says. “Most of the narratives around what COVID was doing were communicated to us by digital technology, by Google, Facebook and Twitter, which are deplatforming people like you and me and putting alarm signals everywhere.


But if you just count on your own lived experience, the bodies were not stacking up. I’m not saying it was a trivial public health problem. But if we had lived through 2020 to 2022, relying on human life experience, the stories our neighbors were telling us what we were hearing from our friends, we would’ve lived through a time in which there was a bad respiratory disease around, but not in which all human activity had to come to a close.”


Wolf’s Predictions for the Near Future


Almost universally, those aware of the facts and who are knowledgeable in this area agree that things are about to get far worse. The COVID pandemic was just the warmup, and right now we seem to be in a deceptive lull before the storm.

Our White House is captured by China. We have a puppet government … If you look at the harms in the Pfizer documents … this is a biological attack. The disruption of our food supplies is an attack. We are under occupation now. It’s not going to happen in the future. We have to notice that we are already under occupation. ~ Naomi Wolf


We don’t know when it’s going to get worse. It could be next week. It could be two or three years. I don’t know, but I think it’s going to be sooner rather than later, so getting prepared is an urgent necessity. Many also wonder what they should prepare for.


Food shortages? Famine? Power failures? Gas shortages? The breakdown of transportation and distribution of goods? The collapse of one or more fiat currencies? The collapse of the entire financial system? Cyber attacks? Nuclear war? Any and all of those are on the table.


“Here’s my sense of the immediate timeline — and I’ve been, unfortunately, right with every projection since I started making them, when this pandemic began,” Wolf says.


“The timeline is not good. November [2022] is going to be a very dangerous month in America. I mean, these people will stop at nothing and I’m literally afraid of a nuclear attack. I’m afraid the war in Ukraine will be the proxy or the rationale for an attack on the whole land. It’ll be blamed on Russia, but it could be [done by] anyone.


I think we’re even beyond a false flag right now in America because I thoroughly believe our White House is captured by China, that we have a puppet government … I voted for the Biden administration — which is embarrassing given that they’re committing treason — but they can’t resist what China and the World Economic Forum want them to do.


If you look at the harms in the Pfizer documents … this is a biological attack. The disruption of our food supplies is an attack. We are under occupation now. It’s not going to happen in the future. We have to notice that we are already under occupation.


I used to be a political consultant. Every single thing that the Biden administration has done in terms of messaging and symbolism has served to lower the status of the United States internationally. Even little things like checking his watch three times at a military funeral. That’s not an accident. Those things are highly scripted.


Over and over again, you can see an external hand dialing down the prestige and authority of the United States. The withdrawal from Afghanistan, that did nothing but trash our standing internationally. The point is, we have a captured White House and that’s very dangerous, because it means the FDA may or may not let poisonous food reach our shelves.


The FDA turned a blind eye or colluded with unbelievable harms revealed in the Pfizer documents, so the FDA can’t be trusted. The CDC can’t be trusted. Basically, you can expect more and more disorienting narratives of confusing public events, more and more ‘It’s monkeypox, it’s smallpox, it’s tuberculosis,’ to make you feel off kilter and panicked right up until November.


In November, I anticipate a giant crisis, which will have the effect of, ‘It’s not safe to leave your homes.’ Everything is radioactive, or there’s smallpox everywhere, or there are mass shooters on the loose. This will drive voters to vote by mail instead of in person.


I say this as a political consultant: There is no way these people are acting like there’s going to be midterm [elections]. They’re acting like there’s never going to be accountability. There’s never going to be investigations. They’re never going to be impeached. So there will be no midterms. If I were to bet, I would bet the midterms will be dramatically compromised, if not taken off the table altogether, or made cursory.


I imagine we’re going to see more and more gangs … militias, and you don’t know who they are. We’re going to see more and more gangs wreaking havoc in inner cities, wreaking havoc with businesses … We don’t know who they are and their job will be to terrorize everyone … and create the complete loosening of social bonds and the civil contract.


The defunding of the police is directly contributing to this. It’s part of this process, and it’s worked … Along with that, there’ll continue to be disruptions in the food supply, certainly disruptions in the energy grid and probably cyber attacks.


There’s going to be parts of the country that are going to be in darkness or unable to communicate intermittently and that will add to our fear. All of this is going to play out around the world, and they’re not going to stop.


A lot of it will play out this year, but not dramatically enough to elicit an effective counter reaction. And that’s their goal. Having said that, there are many things that you can do. So, there’s going to be a degradation around the world of the right to assembly. Parliaments will be told it’s not safe to convene. You won’t be able to see what parliament is doing. You won’t be able to see what Congress is doing.”


The Next Step, Historically


Going by the historical timeline of how a tyrannical regime takes over, the next step will involve a period when opposition leaders, civil rights leaders, outspoken journalists and editors will be arrested and taken to some unknown location. Many will simply be “disappeared.” That’s the point at which civil society just shuts down, even without a coup, because everyone’s too afraid.


After that, mercenaries will show up to reimpose order, but they won’t be our mercenaries. They’ll be working on behalf of the enemy regime. At that point, the United States will formally cease to exist. The takeover will be complete.


As noted by Wolf, right now, “we’re in a time of radical testing of our free will.” If we don’t wake up in sufficient numbers, the end result is already determined. Without pushback, it can’t end any other way. Fortunately, “there’s a robust grassroots resistance to this in the United States,” Wolf says. “And, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the Second Amendment is the key to the U.S. having hope that other countries don’t have.”

Recommendations Moving Forward


So, what can we do to prepare? How do we fight back? Regardless of where you are in the world, there’s a lot you can do. The key to success is to focus the fight on the local and state level. There are also preparations you can (and need) to do on a personal level.


“I’m learning marksmanship. I hate to say it, but this is where we’re at,” Wolf says. “I’m a peaceful person. I hope no one takes this out of context, but you need to be able to defend your family. You need to be able to hunt. We are getting to that point. Even if you hate guns, now is the time to learn marksmanship and be comfortable with a weapon because you may need to kill for food.”


There’s an educational curve when it comes to firearms — how to store, carry and clean them, for example — and you really need to engage in that if you’ve never had any training in that area.


Secondly, know where your food comes from. Make friends with farmers. Create or join a CSA with your neighbors. Learn how to grow some food. There’s a steep learning curve there too. Next, prepare a plan for what to do if there’s no electricity and/or digital communications.


“I tell people to print out their bank statements and asset statements because in The Great Reset, you should expect that there’ll be some giant blitz and it’ll all vanish,” Wolf says. Make sure you have hardcopies of important documents, such as the deed for your home. If you can’t produce it, expect the new regime to claim ownership.


Much can also be done on the state level. For example, in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis has stated he will not enforce the will of the World Economic Forum. The New Hampshire legislature has also passed a really good bill declaring that if the federal government passes an unconstitutional law, it will not be enforced in New Hampshire.


“We have been very successful at DailyClout, state by state, mobilizing people to lobby their state representatives. But they have to pass laws fast, and show massive grassroots movement to not enforce the World Economic Forum diktats at the state level. And, our founders were such geniuses, because they set up our system so that states could do this,” Wolf says.


Importantly, states must accept and be prepared to forgo federal funding and subsidies to retain their sovereignty. We need a new movement where institutions and local leadership publicly forswear any and all corruptible funding, be it from the CCP, the federal government, the WEF or anything else. These individuals and institutions must be willing to disclose the source of all funding, and reject any funds that might make them beholden to an enemy power.

We Need to Build an Alternative Society


The ultimate goal right now is to begin creating a whole alternative civil society. A “reset,” yes, but not the technocratic, transhumanist reset imagined by the globalists. We need to create uncorrupted science, uncorrupted journalism, uncorrupted medicine. We need governors, business leaders and heads of universities and so on to take a pledge to create uncorrupted institutions that are answerable to the people.


“By showing people how the legislative process got corrupted and providing, on my site, DailyClout, the way to draft your own laws and pass your own laws, I am also providing people with very concrete ways to protect their liberties and to know what to do in the future,” Wolf says.


“And, I feel remiss if I didn’t add, I personally had to give up my status as a media darling on the left, my friends, and my networks … when I began to do real reporting on this pandemic and on the mRNA vaccines. We are in a time where people will have to decide, ‘What am I here for on this planet?’ Know that if you cling to lies, and you cling to your professional status, your children will live as slaves and so will you.


It’s time to be brave, because if we’re a little bit brave now, we don’t have to be horrifically brave in the near future … I also think we’re in a massive spiritual moment, that we’re in a biblical moment, and that there’s a level of metaphysics over and above the material and the political assault on us in our reaction.


I’m just speaking for myself, but I do feel like this is part of the picture, the nature of the evil that is unfolded around us … The way the mRNA vaccines target the fetus, target the amniotic membrane, target lactation, this is an evil beyond what Nazis could accomplish. This is an evil of a Miltonic scale.


I’ve looked at it from all sides, and I’m just going to say this, I can’t account for it with purely human material processes. It’s got an element of sophistication and scale and grandeur that really seems beyond the human to me, and to have an element of massive existential evil.


I’m Jewish, so we don’t have a highly-developed notion of Satan, but the these seem to be malevolent forces that can accomplish things beyond what human beings can accomplish.


As a result, I have started to believe in God in a more literal way than I used to, because these malevolent forces seem to be directed at what is good. What is divine? The human face, which my tradition says is an image of God. The human body, which is made in God’s image. Love, which is a manifestation of the divine according to many religious traditions. The family.


It’s like all the things that are being targeted are what is divine about our human journey on this planet. I don’t know where to go with that, except that it seems we’re in a moment in which — in addition to all the other things we can do, and I’m just speaking for myself — I think we can pray.


We don’t have the ability just as human beings to get out of this. It’s too big. I believe that getting out of it requires an awakening that’s massive. And, for myself anyway, asking for divine help has worked before.”

China threatens US Defense Secretary with WAR

Posted by George Freund on June 12, 2022 at 12:35 AM

Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe complained to his American counterpart about the latest U.S. arms package for Taiwan and warned of a possible conflict over the self-governing island that China claims as its own territory

Minister tells Lloyd Austin that Beijing will 'smash to smithereens any Taiwan independence plot' and will 'definitely not hesitate to start a war no matter the cost'

Def Sec Lloyd Austin met with his Chinese counterpart who said China was prepared to 'go to war' in order to keep Taiwan from becoming independent

Austin and China’s Minister of National Defense General Wei Fenghe met for the first time face-to-face on Friday amid the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore

'If anyone dares to split Taiwan from China, the Chinese army will definitely not hesitate to start a war no matter the cost,' the Chinese Defense Sec stated

Austin shared his concerns about China's recent behavior and military activity around the self-governing island

Austin noted a 'steady increase in provocative and destabilizing military activity near Taiwan,' including almost daily military flights near the island by the PRC'

China has said it is prepared to go to war in order to defend its right to keep Taiwan from becoming an independent state.


China will 'smash to smithereens any Taiwan independence plot and resolutely uphold the unification of the motherland' Chinese Defense Minister Fenghe told U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Dialogue conference in Singapore on Friday.


'If anyone dares to split Taiwan from China, the Chinese army will definitely not hesitate to start a war no matter the cost', Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Wu Qian quoted the Fenghe as saying during the meeting, in what is a escalating of tension, not least of which in the type of language being used.


We are already at war. We have been for a spell. Sun Tzu opined that wars must be won before they are fought.


Sun Tzu — 'Every battle is won before it's ever fought.'


We lined up for the patented bioweapon and lost the war. Now we have to come from behind and turn defeat into victory. It won't be easy. The enemy is a master of the art of war. We are fools frozen like the terracotta warriors. When this goes kinetic, it will be a hammer blow. Those that can crawl out of the rubble intact may get the chance to resist the assault with little to no resources. Please turn in your guns to your nearest Marxist block leader. Your death will be quicker and less painless.

You who are about to starve practice begging for food. A hard days work and a bowl of rice go a long way in the slave colony. The rifle butts ward off the hunger pain.

CHINA TO RULE AMERICA: Biden pushes new public health "amendments" to cede all power to the World Health Organization

Posted by George Freund on June 6, 2022 at 5:50 PM

It is official: communist China is now heading up the World Health Organization's (WHO) executive board, which fully explains why the Biden regime is pushing all of its new public health "amendments." In a unanimous vote, China was elected to control the Executive Board of the World Health Assembly (WHA), the WHO's governing body. The communist country will serve alongside 11 other countries in steering the direction of global public health. China's occupation of the top seats at the WHA will last for three years at least – this despite the fact that the WHO blatantly lied and provided false information to investigators during the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) plandemic. Not only did China lie to investigators, but it also obstructed the investigation into the true origins of the alleged virus, as well as persecuted and even killed Chinese doctors who came forward early to warn about what was unfolding at the time.

WHA condemns Israel for posing a "unique" health risk to the world

UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer expressed astonishment and horror that communist China is being propped to the top of the United Nations health agency, with no apparent objections from any member nations such as the United States. "This is the regime that crushed those in Wuhan like Dr. Li Wenliang who courageously tried to warn the world about the coronavirus," Neuer tweeted from Geneva, Switzerland, on May 27.

Dr. Li, in case you missed it, was a doctor in Wuhan who was "brutally silenced," according to Newspunch's Niamh Harris, by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for warning other doctors about a "SARS-like respiratory disease spreading rapidly through his city."

Dr. Li died in February of 2020 at the young age of 34, supposedly from a Fauci Flu infection. The circumstances surrounding Dr. Li's untimely death remain suspiciously questionable in terms of the official story. Neuer further condemned the installment of China to head up global public health at the WHO after several member countries called out Israel as a "unique" health risk to the world. North Korea was also handed the position of chair at the UN Conference on Disarmament, which has upset some.



Mass shooting stopped by law-abiding woman carrying concealed handgun

Posted by George Freund on June 6, 2022 at 5:35 PM

Left-wing Democrats love to claim that the concept of a "good guy with a gun" stopping mass murders is a myth that does not pan out in real life, but of course, like everything else they say on the topic of firearms, that is completely false. And in fact, they have been proven wrong again in recent days thanks to a "good woman with a gun."

According to a report, a West Virginia woman with a concealed carry license did not wait for police to arrive and instead engaged a crazed man armed with an AR-15-rifle who was poised to kill dozens of people attending a graduation party. "Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,"

Charleston Police Department Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett told local news WCHS-TV. The incident took place earlier this week when Dennis Butler, 37, upset by a group of people who were hosting a graduation party, instructed him to slow down as he drove through an apartment complex in the city. Thirty minutes later he returned, parked his vehicle, jumped in the backseat, and began firing toward a group of about 30-40 people. But unbeknownst to this lunatic, a law-abiding woman who had a concealed carry weapon permit in the group drew her handgun quickly and engaged Butler with direct fire, killing him.

"There was a graduation party, a party with kids," Hazelett told reporters at a press conference. "So obviously somebody just graduated high school and another birthday party. We could have had a casualty shooting there." The chief went on to estimate that between 30 and 40 people were at the parties.


NATO deputy chief now says alliance can deploy forces in eastern Europe

Posted by George Freund on June 6, 2022 at 5:15 PM

With each passing day it appears as though the globalist deep state elitists are more than willing to sacrifice the lives of millions of their fellow citizens -- but not themselves -- in their never-ending bid to acquire more power and wealth unto themselves. While 'officially' the U.S.-led NATO has refrained from engaging Russian forces fighting in Ukraine after invading, the security alliance is nevertheless expending every effort to ensure that its forces, at some point, are 'dragged into' the war.

According to Deputy Secretary-General Mircea Geoana, the alliance believes that it is no longer bound by past commitments to refrain from deploying forces in eastern Europe. During a meeting in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius this week, Geoana claimed that Russia has "voided of any content" the NATO-Russia Founding Act because of its invasion of Ukraine and ongoing offensive there. In addition, according to a report by Almayadeen, Moscow's refusal to conduct talks with the alliance further negates the agreement. Under the 1997 agreement, which sought to improve post-Cold War relations between Russia and NATO, both sides agreed to work together to "prevent any potentially threatening build-up of conventional forces in agreed regions of Europe, to include Central and Eastern Europe."

In reference to Russia, the deputy secretary-general said, “They took decisions, they made obligations there not to aggress neighbors, which they are doing, and to have regular consultations with NATO, which they don’t. So I think that in fact this founding act is basically not functioning because of Russia." Geoana went on to say: "Now we have no restrictions to have robust posture in the eastern flank and to ensure that every square inch of NATO's territory is protected by Article 5 and our allies."

Article 5, of course, is the provision of the NATO alliance agreement that allows for the collective defense of all member nations; if one is attacked, then all others are required to come to that country's defense. So naturally, stationing NATO forces as close to the border of Ukraine and Russia as possible, that only dramatically increases the chance of an 'accidental attack' -- a false flag, if you will -- on NATO forces, which will be used as the impetus to then attack Russia, which is replete with nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.

That said, one of NATO's more reluctant members -- Turkey -- is at least acting in a responsible manner. Earlier this week, the country canceled planned NATO drills in the Black Sea, taking on the role of mediator between the alliance and Russia. The reason for Ankara's cancellation was simple: There is no reason to put NATO warships in proximity to Russian warships at the present time and dramatically increase the chance that something unfortunate would happen that would trigger a wider conflict. “If we had joined the sanctions, we would not have been able to fulfill the mediation role that we have now. We applied the Montreux Convention to warships, but the airspace, that corridor, we have to keep it open," said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

“Outside of the convention, there have been requests from Russia, the United States for ships to pass. We have, in accordance with the convention, canceled or postponed planned NATO drills. We play an important role, and we fulfill our obligations,” stated Turkey’s Foreign Minister. “Everyone can now impose sanctions on anyone they want. That’s their business. We have chosen the role of mediator, we are trying to make things easier. And this position is welcomed in the EU, in the world,” he added. Sources include:


The world is about to get hit with an economic hurricane

Posted by George Freund on June 6, 2022 at 3:10 PM

Another prominent banking executive, John Waldron of Goldman Sachs, is predicting major economic doom in the very near future. At a recent investor meeting, Waldron echoed the sentiments of JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon concerning what Dimon called an "economic hurricane" that is about to make landfall. Joking that he would avoid "using any weather analogies" as Dimon did,

Waldron expressed similar fear about inflation, ever-changing monetary policy, and of course, Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the latter being every Western influencer's favorite scapegoat for what is now unfolding. "This is among – if not the most – complex, dynamic environments I've ever seen in my career," Waldron told investors. "The confluence of the number of shocks to the system to me is unprecedented."

One of the harshest critics of the Federal Reserve in the banking world, Waldron says he expects that there will be "tougher economic times ahead" than even the current inflation and shortage crisis that we are all seeing and feeling. "No question we are seeing a tougher capital markets environment," he explained.

Concerning the merger market, Waldron says he expects a slowing from the current "resilient" levels. "That's going to start to roll over because you see demand destruction, CEOs get a little less confident," Waldron explained. "That's a reasonable expectation, but we're watching that carefully as a signal." From mid-October to late April, global macro data seemed to be moving in a somewhat positive direction, which some saw as a possible turnaround. All of that changed suddenly, however, when the Citi Economic Surprise Index plummeted from over 50 just a few months ago to around 8.60 as of this writing.

Is the "everything" bubble about to burst?


Why don't they just ban murder?

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on June 3, 2022 at 10:15 AM

Oh yea it is already banned. The penalties are the most severe. It makes no difference. You can't ban anything. It violates the LAW of supply and demand. All you can do is move the point of intersection on the supply and demand curves.


Why are we letting people who don't know the basics of economics 101 run the country? Then there are the paths of least resistance. If a license is the long term path of most resistance, then illegal arms are the path of least resistance.


I'm told Canadian gun stores sold out fast. Ammunition is selling at a marked increase in price. That seems to support the age-old law of supply and demand.


Turkey changed its name yesterday to the more accurate Turkiye. The connotations of the English version weren't appreciated. What was the 2nd choice? Biden, but it was already derided and had negative connotations.


Remember the state determines that you are helpless and must come begging and groveling to them for help. Ronald Reagan said, the most dangerous words in the English language were "We're from the government. We're here to help."


The vaccine has killed and injured more people than assault rifles. Why isn't it banned? I guess it's the profit motive. Scare the people and they come begging. A special military flight landed in Uvalde before the shooting and took off after it. In any other crime the location and movement of the getaway car is paramount.


The turkey Biden sells powerful military weapons to Ukraine. They kill untold numbers of children. That is O.K. When the president can't get his own way, it is proper to pick up weapons including assault rifles and lay waste to vast swathes of a country.


If children use adults as a model, then they are just mimicking the president and other western leaders. Do what I say or I'll blow you away. You don't have to go to school to learn that. It is the way of the world. When the world comes to school with the philosophies of the state, those who do not condone such activity are blamed and vilified by a media monster and a complicitous government.


One of the most read books in the world is The Art of War. The best wars are not fought. They are won. You win the war by lulling your enemy to sleep and by disarming him. Trucescu legalized marijuana. He is decriminalizing small amounts of narcotics. Both he and the turkey want the people disarmed. China has prepared war against us over Taiwan. Any person familiar with the art of war would see the philosophies of Sun Tzu at play. The term domestic enemies should herald a call to reason. We are being led to our demise individually and nationally. I opine the best trap is the one you don't step into. The law of supply and demand infers you can't ban narcotics. It's just the reason the policy shift is occurring is not what we are led to believe.


When I was younger there weren't school shootings. Marksmanship was taught in high school. I couldn't wait to get there. Things started to change by then. We had something else then too - the Lord's prayer. We learned forgiveness of trespasses. That could be the most important lesson to learn of all of them. We learned there was a God and supreme rules to follow. Those lessons were removed by the state in many places. Now it has become necessary to seek revenge for trespasses. School shootings are a lack of moral education. There is a lack of respect for life and no firearms training which involves SAFETY not hatred of guns and constitutional amendments.


I can see that segueing into the art of war too. You can't be made a godless communist if you know about god. If you are taught the state is god, then terrible things await future generations. There is a larger agenda at play. It is destroying all we hold dear and replacing it with the rising mark of the beast system. To get there, the forces of evil need a helpless populace to drug and castrate as the central authority dictates. Pretty much all nations are falling prostrate to the WHO by treaty. When the iron fist is finally exposed, the 2nd Amendment will be revealed as the ultimate court of appeal. It is the natural law of this dimensional plane. It is the law of the jungle. The founding fathers knew that. Might makes right whether you appreciate it or not. If the people are not the might, then the tyrant is.


Chairman Mao knew that well. He said political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. By controlling arms, you control the people and reduce them to whatever level of servitude the tyrant desires. You won't even be able to beg and grovel without the infamous jackboot holding you down.

Australia mastered the art well. You are chattel and cattle to whatever has mastery over us. I trust scripture in that we battle not against flesh and blood. We are enslaved by a demonic supernatural. I see it in the rise of AI. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. I say resistance is fundamental. I underline the fun in fundamental. You can participate in the shooting sports. Like martial arts, you learn to fight so you don't have to. If you don't learn, you will have to. Then you risk losing badly.


The most powerful tool used by the police state is the theater of the mind. They create your reality and you beg to extol it. It is the art of war.

Ex-cop killed in Buffalo shooting had just invented a powerful "water powered engine"

Posted by Conspiracy Cafe on May 26, 2022 at 9:55 AM

Aaron Salter Jr., a security guard at the Tops Friendly Markets store in Buffalo who was killed in the recent mass shooting, had reportedly just patented a new type of vehicle engine that runs on water instead of gasoline. Describing his invention as a "newly discovered energy source," Salter, just prior to his death, had been working on and speaking publicly about environmentally sustainable vehicles that have the potential to replace existing ones that rely on either internal combustion (gas) or battery-powered (electric) engines.

Salter's LinkedIn profile reveals that one of his main passions in life was coming up with a free energy transportation solution. In a YouTube video, he demonstrated how his 2010 Ford F-150 truck operated using an AWS Hydrogen Fuel System, which is based on water. "So we're going to do four experiments today for the patent examiners," Salter, an ex-cop, said in the video while proudly displaying his Police Benevolent Association shirt. "What my system has done is take advantage of the residue that's produced by electrolysis," he further explained. "So we're going to actually start this vehicle without electrolysis ... I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none." Salter's video is still available for viewing on YouTube below:

Was Aaron Salter Jr. targeted by the deep state for coming up with a free energy solution to gas- and electric-powered vehicles?

Back in 2016, Salter uploaded a post to Facebook explaining his position at AWS Hydrogen Technologies, LLC. It modestly read that Salter was excited to have started this company, believing that it is fully possible to power vehicles with water. "... I believe I can change the way we power [our] cars, boats, generators, and it comes from water," he wrote, calling the technology "rehydrated hydrogen." "And we can get one step closer to helping [our] planet rid itself of these dangerous hydrocarbons that are damaging [our] Ozone and causing global warming to [our] planet."

In other words, not only is the technology clean, running on abundant and virtually free water, but it also helps to clean the air of pollutants that already exist. Talk about a win, win situation. It is because of this technological discovery that some believe Salter's untimely death to be suspicious. Was he targeted by the industries that stand to lose, should Salter's invention have gone mainstream? (Related: The FBI often stages terror attacks, so this hypothesis is not that far-fetched.)

It turns out that Salter is hardly the first person to mysteriously die not long after discovering and unveiling a new system that runs on water rather than fossil fuels or electricity. Stanley Meyer had also come up with a water-powered motor technology right before he suddenly and strangely died while dining at a Denny's restaurant with two Belgian investors. "Meyer started choking during the meal, ran outside and claimed he had been poisoned just before he died," reports Baxter Dmitry for Newspunch. You can watch a video below of Meyer explaining his technology:

ENGLAND: Close to 180,000 died within 60 days of COVID-19 vaccination

Posted by George Freund on May 26, 2022 at 7:45 AM


The Office for National Statistics (ONS) in England revealed that a total of 69,466 people died within 28 days and 178,874 people died within 60 days of getting injected with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine between January 2021 and March 2022. ONS published the data on deaths by vaccination status on May 16. The report included a chart titled "Number of Deaths within 28 Days of COVID-19 Vaccination in England." The total fatalities were broken down to 7,953 people who died positive for the virus and 61,513 people who expired due to other causes within 28 days of vaccination. During the same timeframe, a total of 14,049 people died from coronavirus and a total of 164,825 people died from other causes within 60 days of vaccination.

The data was released following dozens of Freedom of Information inquiries made to various government institutions requesting to know the number of people who died after receiving the jabs. (Related: CDC hides COVID data from the public in order to whitewash dishonest COVID narrative.) Moreover, the U.K. Health Security Agency's vaccine surveillance report indicated that 92 percent of all the pandemic-related deaths in England in March were among the vaccinated population.

Governments manipulated data to heighten COVID-19 pandemic

Dr. Norman Fenton, Risk Information Management professor at Queen Mary University of London, criticized the governments around the world for manipulating the COVID-19 pandemic data when he guested on "The Defender Podcast." "It was clear from the start that most of the data that governments put out ­– not just the UK government, but most governments around the world ­– were kind of misleading because it was based on very easily manipulated statistics," Fenton told the host Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Throughout the pandemic, Fenton closely examined and criticized how officials used data to make decisions about lockdowns, testing and vaccines. He pointed out that there was an immediate rush to draw conclusions, which were sort of based on over-simplistic data on case numbers and deaths. The problem was that data were very easily used by influencers and decision-makers to fit particular narratives that exaggerated the scale of the crisis.

Fenton's team published some of the first research providing more accurate estimates about the infection rate versus the fatality rate compared with official estimates that he said were based on faulty data. The research showed the virus was more widespread than people assumed, but nowhere near as dangerous as was being claimed. Further in the show, he also addressed some concerns on the faulty polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests. "We were initially led to believe that the PCR test was an accurate diagnostic test. But later, of course, we discovered that wasn't true. And the impact of that has been catastrophic," he said.

The use of PCR tests was also misguided since the tests are inherently fraudulent, and were never intended or designed to function as a diagnostic tool for the disease. Kennedy agreed, saying the the magnitude of the pandemic was enormously and deceptively amplified by the misuse of the PCR test. He added that the information concerning deaths following vaccination also was manipulated as part of the official claim that the vaccine was the only way to keep people from becoming seriously ill and dying.

Data adjusted to take into account misclassification shows a peak in mortality shortly after vaccination. "Now, of course, it could well be that these are people who are indeed immunosuppressed seriously. Also, the vaccination might just be bringing forward the death, which would've occurred shortly afterward anyway," Kennedy said. Still, the fact remains that hundreds of thousands if not millions have died shortly after getting injected with the COVID-19 vaccine. Visit for the latest updates on the COVID-19 pandemic. Watch the video below about England's move to end COVID masks and passports.

NOTE: 60,000 deaths occurred during the German bombing campaign on England known as the Blitz in WW2. There were around 60,000 combat deaths of Canadians troops in WW1 and a similar number in WW2. This has been a monstrous debacle. Worse yet it is far from over. I would anticipate the recent school shooting was arranged to take the headlines and shield the demonic evil that governs us. The pattern is obvious to those with eyes to see.




Health Canada has just updated their COVID dashboard. 99.96% of the COVID deaths in the last 1 week period were Vaccinated. 70% BOOSTED!


You will know them for their works.


As immune system failure becomes more prevalent, the blind trust given to authority and opinion will come to an end like the lives that trusted them. As long as science manipulates and conceals data, it is no longer science but dogma. It is the wolf in sheep's clothing.

15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.


16 By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?


17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit.


18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit.


19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire.


20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
