France moves to expel 231 radicalized foreigners after assassination of teacher

Major tributes to the victim, Samuel Paty, are planned this week

By Peter Aitken, Lucia I. Suarez Sang | Fox News

Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin said he intends to move swiftly in response to the killing of Samuel Paty, a history teacher who was beheaded after showing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in class.

President Emmanuel Macron has called the killing an "Islamist terrorist attack."

The primary response to the attack includes the deportation of 231 foreigners in the File of Alerts for the Prevention of Terrorist Attacks (FSPRT), which tracks radicalized activities, according to Europe 1. Darmanin had planned to expel the people already, having traveled to Morocco the previous week to ask the government to accept nine of its radicalized nationals. He plans to meet with officials in Algeria and Tunisia to discuss similar deals. On the list are 180 people currently in prison and another 51 individuals who will be arrested shortly, officials said. More than 850 illegal immigrants are registered to the FSPRT, 24 News reported. French authorities have already arrested 11 individuals in connection with the killing, the BBC reported, though it is not clear if they are also part of the planned expulsions.

Four close relatives of the suspect were detained shortly after the attack. Six more people were held on Saturday, including the father of a pupil at the school and a preacher described by French media as a radical Islamist.

Darmanin also plans to bring into focus the question of the right to asylum, since an 18-year-old Chechen refugee, identified only as Abdoulakh A., is suspected of killing Paty. The minister asked his services to more carefully examine people who wish to obtain refugee status in France. SUSPECT IN TEACHER'S BEHEADING IN FRANCE WAS CHECHEN TEEN

The suspect was found a short distance from the victim, carrying a knife. After the suspect refused to drop his weapon, police shot and killed him.

French anti-terrorism prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard has said a text claiming responsibility for the attack and a photograph of the victim were found on the suspect’s phone. A photo of Paty’s decapitated head was posted on a Twitter account that belonged to the suspect.

“I have executed one of the dogs from hell who dared to put Mohammad down,” the message with the photo said, according to authorities. The beheading has upset moderate French Muslims. On Sunday, political leaders, associations and unions are set to demonstrate in Paris and other major cities to call for support of freedom of speech and pay tribute to Paty.

A national tribute will be paid to Paty on Wednesday.

A civilization does not kill an innocent person, barbarism does,” Tareq Oubrou, imam of a mosque in Bordeaux, told France Inter on Saturday.

Pelosi sets a 48-hour deadline to reach an agreement on the coronavirus stimulus plan

Yelena Dzhanova 24 hours ago

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday negotiators have two days to reach an agreement on the upcoming coronavirus stimulus plan.

Negotiators should come to an agreement within 48 hours to ensure that President Donald Trump can sign it ahead of the November election, which is weeks away.

Negotiations remain stalled in Congress, as Republicans and Democrats continue to hammer out the details. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a 48-hour deadline on Sunday that she said negotiators must meet to be able to strike a deal on the upcoming coronavirus stimulus package ahead of the November 3 election.

In an interview on ABC's "This Week," the California Democrat said the next two days will be crucial in terms of timing in order for the bill to be signed by President Donald Trump before the presidential election.

With just a little over two weeks to go until the election, the pressure is ramping up to produce a second round of stimulus checks to Americans and small businesses whose finances and economic outlooks were roiled by the coronavirus pandemic.

Over the past few weeks, the Trump administration has made an aggressive push to get out the next stimulus package before the election. When asked Sunday whether Americans can expect to get a second round of relief within this timeframe, Pelosi said, "Well, that depends on the administration."

"I'm optimistic," she added. The next stimulus package remains stalled in Congress, as Democrats and Republicans continue to hammer out the details of the plan. House Democrats passed a $2.2 trillion stimulus plan earlier this month, but Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called the amount "outlandish" and said the two parties remain "very, very far apart on a deal."

The White House has also proposed its own $1.8 trillion plan, which includes $1,200 direct payments, a $400 weekly federal unemployment benefit, $300 billion in aid to state and local governments, and some funding for virus testing and contact tracing.

Lawmakers were quick to point out the plan's deficiencies, with Pelosi saying in a letter to House Democrats that the parameters for expanded nationwide testing and tracing program are not well-defined.

"The Administration continues to refuse to put a national testing, tracing and surveillance plan in place," said New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone in the letter. "[The Trump plan] would also needlessly delay funding to states by requiring states to jump through legislative hoops that are simply unnecessary. It does nothing to address the barriers and needs of communities of color that have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19."

Top PLO official Erekat, sick with COVID, hospitalized in Israel

Chief Palestinian negotiator and longtime diplomat in Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital for treatment after his condition worsens

By Aaron Boxerman 18 October 2020, 2:33 pmUpdated at 4:25 pm

Senior Palestinian Liberation Organization official Saeb Erekat, who was recently diagnosed with COVID-19, was hospitalized Sunday in Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.

“Because of the chronic health problems in Erekat’s respiratory system, he is being transferred to a hospital in the 1948 areas [Israel], because his condition requires special medical attention and supervision,” the PLO Negotiation Affairs department. Erekat, 65, is considered to be at high risk for complications from the virus. He survived both a mild heart attack in 2012 and a 2017 lung transplant after years of suffering from pulmonary fibrosis, a condition that scars the lungs and damages their ability to circulate oxygen. In a statement, a spokesperson for Hadassah said that Erekat was brought to the hospital in serious condition and required oxygen. Erekat, who is being treated in the hospital’s coronavirus ward, remains in “serious but stable condition,” according to Hadassah.

The Palestinian Authority requested from Israel that Erekat receive immediate medical care.

Magen David Adom paramedics, escorted by IDF soldiers, arrived at Erekat’s West Bank home on Sunday afternoon to take him to Jerusalem, according to Channel 12 news.

Erekat had been in isolation in his house in Jericho since his diagnosis earlier this month. He had initially only experienced light coronavirus symptoms, including a fever.

One of the architects of the Oslo peace accords, Erekat has been the PLO’s chief negotiator since 1995. Erekat has led numerous rounds of peace talks with Israel for over two decades and continues to play a central role in Palestinian politics.

Rural Hospitals in Midwest Face Viral Surge

Rural parts of the American Midwest that had previously escaped the worst of the coronavirus are now seeing a surge — and hospitals are struggling to keep up.

Counties across Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana sit among the top in the nation for new cases per capita over the last two weeks, according to Johns Hopkins researchers.

In counties with just a few thousand people, the number of cases per capita can soar with even a small outbreak — and the toll hits close to home in tight-knit towns. As the brunt of the virus has blown into the Upper Midwest and northern Plains, the severity of outbreaks in rural communities has come into focus. Doctors and health officials in small towns worry that infections may overwhelm communities with limited medical resources. And many say they are still running up against attitudes on wearing masks that have hardened along political lines and a false notion that rural areas are immune to widespread infections.

Even as outbreaks threaten to spiral out of control, doctors and health officials said they are struggling to convince people of the seriousness of a virus that took months to arrive in force.

Israel, Bahrain to sign document launching formal ties

Mnuchin to fly in with US delegation for today’s ceremony

By CELIA JEAN, CODY LEVINE, TOVAH LAZAROFF OCTOBER 18, 2020 06:42

Israeli and Bahraini officials plan to sign a normalization declaration in Manama Sunday that will launch diplomatic relations and peace between the two countries.

“From tomorrow there will be full diplomatic relations between Israel and Bahrain after the joint declaration,” an Israeli official told reporters on Saturday night. The Israeli official referred to the document as a “joint communique,” but explained that in practice, full diplomatic relations will be in place by the end of the day Sunday. After, the signing work can begin on the establishment of embassies in both countries.

The scheduled Israeli-Bahraini ceremony follows the Knesset vote Thursday to authorize Israel’s peace deal with the United Arab Emirates.

Both deals were brokered by the United States as part of its Abraham Accords.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, along with assistant to the president and special representative for international negotiations Avi Berkowitz, and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman will participate in the ceremonies. Mnuchin and his delegation will land first in Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport. According to the US Treasury, the Americans will travel together with an Israeli delegation on the “first-ever direct commercial flight from Israel to Bahrain.”

There will be both a ceremony at the airport in Bahrain when the plane lands followed by a signing ceremony in the evening.

The Israeli delegation will be led by National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat.

During the day, Israeli and Bahraini official will hold talks on areas on potential cooperation including investment, civil aviation, tourism, trade, science and technology, environment, communications, health, agriculture, water, energy and legal cooperation.

From Manama, the US delegation will fly to Abu Dhabi, where “the first-ever Abraham Accords Business Summit” will be held. The group will then fly back to Tel Aviv, the Treasury said.

Separately, the first official delegation to Israel from the UAE is expected to land in Israel Tuesday, but may remain at the airport and fly home the same day, rather than conduct a wider visit, due to coronavirus precautions, an Israeli minister said.

Israel is under a second coronavirus lockdown, which it plans to begin easing in the next few days, after a surge in cases.

Science and Technology Minister Izhar Shay, whose ministry is taking part in talks with the UAE delegates, said the visitors would stay for several hours under a coronavirus protocol.

“Right now it looks kind of ‘touch and go.’ It’s possible that the meetings will be at the airport or close to it,” he told Tel Aviv radio station 102 FM.

Officials have said the UAE delegation will involve eight or nine groups working on various areas of bilateral cooperation, as a follow-up to talks launched in Abu Dhabi during an August 31 visit by an Israeli delegation.

Two other officials involved in the planning, one Israeli and the other American, said it was possible the UAE delegation visit would take place entirely at Ben-Gurion Airport, near Tel Aviv. The UAE has yet to confirm the delegation visit.

Drone footage captures devastation caused by back-to-back hurricanes Delta and Laura as 370,000 are left without power and the death toll rises to two

Delta made landfall Friday evening near coastal town of Creole with top winds of 100mph, forecasters said

It moved over Lake Charles, where Hurricane Laura damaged nearly every home and building in August

About 10,000 utility workers were dispatched Saturday to get power restored to thousands of customers

Authorities revealed Sunday that two people have been killed by Delta; one in Florida and one in Louisiana

Aerial images and footage shows the homes destroyed by Laura now flooded by Hurricane Delta on Friday

By Valerie Edwards For Dailymail.com Published: 11:36 EDT, 11 October 2020 | Updated: 07:58 EDT, 12 October 2020

Hurricane Delta has claimed two lives and left around 370,000 without power after it battered the Gulf Coast just weeks after the area was devastated by Hurricane Laura.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said Sunday that an 86-year-old man from St. Martin Parish had died while refueling his power generator which burst into flames. It appears that the man had now allowed the generator to fully cool before refueling.

Dakota Pierce, a 19-year-old Illinois tourist in Florida also died Sunday, officials said, after they got caught in a rip current in the powerful waves created by Delta.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that witnesses went in to help the tourists in Destin, Florida, but also struggled with the rough waves before they were rescued by lifeguards. Witnesses told the sheriff's office that the pair of tourists got pulled out by a rip current Saturday and the young man was overtaken by waves.

Pierce was not breathing when pulled from the ocean and was later pronounced dead at an emergency room. The other swimmer, a 22-year-old Illinois man, was rescued and taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

Meanwhile, drone footage captured the devastation of homes that were destroyed by Hurricane Laura now flooded by Hurricane Delta.

Scroll down for video The two back-to-back hurricanes in the space of six weeks have left an area of southwest Louisiana blanketed with tarpaulins, debris and flooded streets - but not despair.

Delta made landfall Friday evening near the coastal town of Creole with top winds of 100mph. It moved over Lake Charles, a city where Hurricane Laura damaged nearly every home and building in late August.

About 10,000 utility workers were dispatched Saturday to get power restored to thousands of customers.

Earnestine and Milton Wesley had decided to ride out Delta in their Lake Charles home, damaged just weeks earlier by Laura.  As the wind rustled the tarp above them, they grabbed it through the hole in the ceiling and held on tight. Water poured in, flooding their den.

'We fought all night long trying to keep things intact,' Milton said. 'And with God's help we made it.'

Hannah Franklin lives in Iowa, a small town of about 3,000 people outside of Lake Charles. She evacuated for both Laura and Delta, but she said not everyone could.

Some people have been living in tents because they don´t have anywhere to go, she said.

She's worried that the region isn't getting the help that it needs. At the same time, she's been heartened by the way the community has pulled together. Neighbors check on neighbors, bringing food or water.

'It's been really, really sad to see. But at the same time,' she said, 'it warms your heart to see ... how strong Louisiana is'. Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter estimated that hundreds of already battered homes took on water. And people were already exhausted and stressed - for two weeks the Wesleys had been sleeping on their back porch to escape the heat because they had no power.

'Add Laura and Delta together and it's just absolutely unprecedented and catastrophic,' Hunter said.

'We are very concerned that with everything going in the country right now that this incident may not be on the radar nationally like it should be.'

Before Friday's storm, the streets were already lines with mountains of debris from the prior storm - piles of soggy insulation, moldy mattresses, tree limbs, twisted metal siding, ruined family treasures.

While Delta was a weaker storm than Category 4 Laura, it inflicted most of its damage with rain instead of wind.

Louisiana Gov John Bel Edwards said it dumped more than 15 inches of rain on Lake Charles over two days and more than 10 inches on Baton Rouge. The floodwaters surged up the Wesley family´s front yard, and they were terrified it would pour inside but it stopped short of the door. It carried with it bags of trash and muck, swept up from their neighbors´ piles of debris from the prior storm.

'The water was something else last night,' Milton said. 'We´ve never seen it flood so bad out here, to the point I could have swam out here last night, that´s just how deep it was.'

On Saturday, they joined other southern Louisiana residents starting the routine yet again: dodging overturned cars on the roads, chain-sawing fallen trees, trudging through knee-deep water to flooded homes with ruined floors and no power, pledging to rebuild. Edwards said 3,000 Louisiana National Guard soldiers were mobilized to clear roads and distribute meals and tarps.

Delta rapidly weakened once it moved onto land and slowed to a tropical depression Saturday. Forecasters warned that heavy rain, storm surge and flash floods continued to pose dangers from parts of Texas to Mississippi.

Forecasters said remnants could spawn tornadoes in Tennessee Valley into Sunday, and flash floods could hit the southern Appalachians. Delta, the 25th named storm of an unprecedented Atlantic hurricane season, was the 10th to hit the mainland US this year, breaking a record set in 1916, Colorado State University researcher Phil Klotzbach said.

The governor said Delta disrupted state efforts to set up temporary housing in southwest Louisiana to bring back Laura evacuees scattered across hotels.

More than 9,400 people were being sheltered by the state Saturday, but only 935 were Delta evacuees, Edwards said. The others were still displaced by Laura.

Many people who had started repairing their homes from Laura saw the work undone overnight and the materials they bought 'just scattered about because of the wind,' he said.

'Again, it's going to set us back, but it´s not going to dictate our future.'

The the double punch of the storms - on top of the pandemic - has left many reeling, said Lake Charles resident Katie Prejean McGrady.

She was nine months pregnant when she and her family evacuated ahead of Laura. They fled a couple hours north and she had to find a new doctor to deliver her baby. They lost part of their roof, their fence and their swing set.

They arrived back in Lake Charles last weekend and had to evacuate again days later, debris from Laura still in their yard.

'I'm taxed out. And I think that's most people in town,' she said. 'There's a mental exhaustion that sets in and then there's a fear of "Does anybody outside this region care?"'

World Bank, UN, Harvard, Think Tanks Warn COVID-19 Lockdowns, Response Leading To Global Starvation, Food Disruptions

October 11, 2020

As government restrictions to slow the spread of COVID-19 have now been largely in place globally for most of 2020, international organizations are sounding the alarm that global starvation may be on the horizon due to food shortages and economic disruptions.

In Africa, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development warns that the continent suffers a new threat to food security: COVID-19. The continent, which imported 85% of its food in 2018, is facing a crisis as the costs of food skyrocket worldwide due to economic disruptions from the pandemic.

Elsewhere, in Latin America and the Caribbean, a collection of United Nations agencies are warning of rising hunger in a region already struck by food insecurity and right on the United States’ doorstep. The agencies warned:

The agencies said the pandemic follows seven years of slow economic growth in Latin America and the Caribbean, and could result in the biggest drop in regional Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in a century; a decline of -5.3 per cent.

This will push an additional 16 million more people into extreme poverty this year, in a region where nearly 54 million people were already experiencing severe food insecurity.

COVID-19 is also affecting food systems, with domestic food prices rising higher than other basic items. Increased unemployment means millions are unable to buy enough to eat, while many others are forced to find cheaper food that is less nutritious.

The United Nations has previously noted a link between hunger and migration, explaining that research generally agrees ” food insecurity is one of the dimensions influencing migration,” and that “environmental and financial shocks that reduce access to food and increase food costs,” potentially including a pandemic that disrupts the global food chain, “coupled with weak institutions and a lack of employment opportunities, also contribute to migration.” All of this may set the stage for a post-COVID migrant crisis.

However, food insecurity issues are not limited to Africa and Latin America. In the United States, more than one in six adults was food insecure only two months into the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

According to the Urban Institute, “the COVID-19 pandemic has put millions of families at risk of experiencing food insecurity,” and studied the pandemic’s impacts on the country as of May.

They found that “May 2020, more than one in six nonelderly adults (17.7 percent) and more than one in five parents living with children under 19 (21.8 percent) reported that their households experienced food insecurity during the prior 30 days,” and that American families largely became more dependent on charity and government programs in the opening months of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the Harvard Health Blog stresses that COVID-19 may lead to eating disorders in the United States, as Americans facing smaller grocery budgets may resort to making less expensive, less nutritious meals, or eating less in general, in order to make ends meet. Likewise, Harvard also warned against Americans with means who may engage in binge eating as a coping mechanism for the increased stress from the pandemic.

The article continues to explain that COVID-19 is stretching the resources of American food banks to their limits, and urges a “coordinated multi-sector approach” to avoid falling “all short of solving food insecurity” in communities throughout the country.

Breaking News: Texas trucking company closes its doors, sources say

Trinity Logistics Group had 102 drivers and 150 power units

Texas-based trucking company Trinity Logistics Group is ceasing operations due to “lack of work” in an abrupt closure that left some drivers blindsided, sources close to the company told FreightWaves.

Drivers were told of the closure in a Sept. 28 conference call, sources told FreightWaves on Saturday. Dallas-based Trinity Logistics Group is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trinity Industries, Inc. (NYSE: TRN.)

All of the equipment had been slated to be returned to the company’s headquarters on Friday.

Trinity Logistics Group had 102 drivers and 150 power units, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration SAFER website. The carrier offered flatbed, oversize and heavy haul services, including hauling wind tower components.

Trinity Industries’ spokesman Jack Todd did not return multiple telephone calls and emails seeking comment about the closure. A source said all drivers were paid for their work and were not stranded without working fuel cards as was the case in other shutdowns, including Indianapolis-based Celadon and Falcon Transport of Youngstown, Ohio.

In its latest earnings call in July, Trinity Industries, which owns Trinity Rail, a company that manufactures railcars, said financial troubles in the frac sand sector hurt the company’s second-quarter net profits.

According to a FreightWaves report, Trinity said 2019 marked its first year as a rail-focused company. Earlier this year, Trinity named E. Jean Savage, who was already on Trinity’s board, as its new president and CEO.

While Trinity Industries has job openings in all of its other business segments, no trucking positions were listed.

This was a red flag for some of its drivers On the Trinity Logistics Group website, it states that “Our fleet has done an exceptional job this year and we are at capacity for drivers.”

According to the Texas Workforce Commission website, Trinity Logistics Group had not filed a notice of its impending closure prior to its announcement on Sept. 28.

Employers with more than 100 employees are required to notify workers as part of the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. WARN requires employers to provide their employees with a 60-day notice of a massive layoff.

Midtown's Roosevelt Hotel Closing After Nearly 100 Years: Reports

Nick Garber Patch•October 13, 2020

MIDTOWN MANHATTAN, NY — The latest hospitality giant to fall during the pandemic, Midtown's iconic Roosevelt Hotel announced this week that it would close permanently after nearly a century in business.

Facing a steep drop-off in customers since the coronavirus took hold, hotel management told CNN that it would close before the end of the year, "due to the current, unprecedented environment and the continued uncertain impact from COVID-19."

First opened in 1924, the hotel, on East 45th Street off Madison Avenue, is a fixture of the Midtown skyline and has played host to a number of historic moments. It 1948, served as the election headquarters for New York Governor Thomas Dewey, where he prematurely and incorrectly announced on election night that he had defeated incumbent President Harry S. Truman.

Now owned by Pakistan International Airlines, the 1,000-room hotel was named after President Theodore Roosevelt and was once linked to neighboring Grand Central Terminal via an underground passageway. The hospitality industry has been among the hardest-hit by the pandemic. About 7.5 million workers in the industry lost their jobs in April, CNN reported, and only about half have been hired back.

The Times Square Hilton and Omni Berkshire Place are among the other big-name hotels in New York City to close their doors for good due to economic fallout from the crisis.

Trump gives Barr ultimatum: Arrest Obama, Biden and Clinton or find yourself in a ‘sad situation’

Sunday, October 11, 2020 by: News Editors

(Natural News) President Donald Trump issued Bill Barr an ultimatum during a live phone-in Thursday on Fox Business — either the attorney general indicts Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton for “the greatest political crime in the history of our country” or he will find himself in a “sad situation.”

(Article by Baxter Dmitry republished from NewsPunch.com)

“Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes,” declared the president, “the greatest political crime in the history of our country, then we’re gonna get little satisfaction unless I win. Because I won’t forget it. But these people should be indicted, this was the greatest political crime in the history of our country. And that includes Obama, and that includes Biden; these are people that spied on my campaign, and we have everything.“

The warning comes after Mr Trump left Walter Reed Medical Centre and returned to Twitter with a storm of energetic tweets and retweets, many of them demanding the indictment of Obama administration figures. “We’ve got so much, Maria, just take a look at the [former FBI Director James] Comey report, 78 pages of kill, done by [DOJ Inspector General Michael] Horowitz,” he added. The Blaze report: It was not immediately clear if the president was referring to documents and evidence already made publicly available or to information not yet revealed as a part of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation. Durham was tasked by Barr earlier this year with investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

What’s the background?

On Tuesday, Trump authorized the declassification of all government documents related to the Trump-Russia investigation and the email scandal involving 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!” Trump said in a tweet.

That announcement followed Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe’s declassification of a CIA memo addressed to former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.

The memo informed the two officials about “an exchange … discussing U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”

Ratcliffe also released notes taken by former CIA Director John Brennan that showed that Brennan was aware of the allegations. Brennan wrote: “Cite alleged approval by Hillary Clinton [on 28 July] on proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to villify [sic] Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”

AMERICAN REQUIEM–THE PREFACE TO ‘WHY THE USA FALLS IN THE LAST DAYS’

October 11, 2020 S DOUGLAS WOODWARD

It is a large-format book (8.5″ x 11″), 184 pages, and 80,000 words. It can be pre-ordered at my store, www.faith-happens.com/store, at a pre-order price of $19.95 or bundled with a related title, MISTAKEN IDENTITY: THE CASE AGAINST THE ISLAMIC ANTICHRIST, for $23.95.

PREFACE

The Spring and Summer of 2020 saw the United States fall into its greatest crisis since World War II. During the progression of this crisis, I was completing two recent books, Rebooting the Bible, Part 2, and the Second Edition of Rebooting the Bible, Part 1. I had not written extensively on prophetic topics for the better part of four years. My previous prophetic book, The Revealing, co-authored with friend Gary Huffman, dealt with the hopeful aspects of our prophetic future—events that reach out beyond the Great Tribulation and address what happens at the Rapture of the Church—and beyond. Gary and I argued in The Revealing that our future in Christ is the most remarkable prophecy of all in the Bible, for it speaks to our extraordinary destiny—our new bodies, our future mission, and our incredible eternal relationships with our loved ones, friends, and most of all, our intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and the Father. Admittedly, I was somewhat burned out on what many term ‘doom and gloom.’ My marketing moniker, perhaps ill-chosen, has been Doomsday Doug for the past five years or so. Ironically, I had avoided most of the negativity that surrounds the darkness of the Last Days. I believe that this disposition was what the LORD wished for me as it led me to address topics, especially the history of the Bible, that are not precisely at the heart of Bible Prophecy. I think I needed a break. If you haven’t read these and are a student of the Bible, I do hope you will check them out. I meant them to be robust apologetics for the truthfulness of the Bible.

But the sting of what has been happening in the United States of America since March 2020 awakened my interest in writing about end-times’ details again. Indeed, what I offer in this book is perhaps the darkest exposé of anything that I’ve written on the subject of what will happen in the Last Days. There is hope. But only if we prepare for what is coming.

Some chapters in American Requiem revisit material I’ve composed in four earlier books. While the material repeats much of the prose of the past, it has been dramatically rewritten and intensely revised to zero-in on the meaning of what is happening today. The points I’ve made in the past are even more valid today than when I wrote them beginning in 2010 and continued in more recent books concluding with The Next Great War in The Middle East in 2015/early 2016. Since many of my readers have never read the earlier books, I am not ashamed to bring them back into focus today. If you haven’t read these books for five years or so, they will be fresh. Given the backdrop of what is happening in our land today, no doubt, you will find the writing hard-hitting and pertinent like little else you’ve read regarding the subject matter. Some will think me radical left. Others will see me as radical right. I’m neither.

These chapters’ nature is somewhat like ‘editorializing’ in that the number of footnotes is far below what I usually put in my books. Essentially, the chapters are treatises, although that highfalutin word might frighten away some. Please don’t be scared. In this book, I just dispense with a great deal of the everyday documenting-to-death style I typically employ to prove my points to the unbeliever. I trust that my readers by now know that I speak out of years of extensive research and keeping up with current events (God bless the Internet).

Consequently, offering a book chock full of opinion and polemics is not out of bounds nor undeserving of serious consideration. Indeed, in this book, I rely more on “striking a chord” with the reader by appealing to what he or she intrinsically knows is the truth. That is, what I have to say should ring true to what the reader feels but may not have yet articulated in their thinking. I hope that I help in this regard. If I raise your blood pressure, chances are my words are hitting the mark.

Underlying the presentation of what I believe awaits the United States in the months and years immediately ahead is the view that Douglas Krieger, Dene McGriff, and I espoused in The Final Babylon. It was also the core premise of Power Quest, Volumes 1 and 2. That is, the United States plays a crucial role in the Last Days. Unfortunately, it is not because the USA is ‘the good guy.’ Quite the opposite. The view is that our country becomes the bad guy and wears the ‘black hat.’ Joel Richardson and I (who I count as a good Brother) have debated his view, commonly known as the Islamic Antichrist; that is, whether America or Turkey comprises the power base of the Antichrist. I argue that it is much more likely the Antichrist is a U.S. President (occupying office or retired) than a Muslim, perhaps empowered by the U.N. Richardson’s Islamic Antichrist viewpoint sees Turkey and maybe its current President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as both the Beast and Gog from the land of Magog as these are the same for Richardson. In this book, I address the reasons I disagree. But I concede that Islam is an antichrist-spirit for Christians and is not a neutral point of view with which Yahweh finds favor. How have I changed my point of view from five years ago? America is likely to be taken out of the end-times equation before the Tribulation period begins, or at the very start of the final seven years leading up to the Return of Jesus Christ. In our book, The Final Babylon, Krieger, McGriff, and I argued that the USA continues deep into the Great Tribulation. However, as I believe the Rapture of the Church happens before God’s wrath falls on Babylon the Great, the Rapture precedes God’s wrath (i.e., the Bowls’ of Wrath described in The Seventh Seal). In contrast, Krieger and McGriff hold a view closer to experts call the ‘Post-Tribulation’ position. They believe the Church will continue on earth during this time.

Nevertheless, I maintain that God’s wrath burns against the Daughter of Babylon. He directs His anger toward the nation that was once “a golden cup in the Lord’s hands” (Jeremiah 51:17, Psalm 47:2), something that Islam and Turkey never were. Thus, I believe it is necessary to distinguish the Daughter of Babylon, Mystery Babylon, and ultimately, the entire Kingdom of the Antichrist, which is Babylon the Great. I discuss these distinctions in detail in this book. Suffice it to say; The United States is the Daughter of Babylon, not Mystery Babylon (which is the one-world religion), nor Babylon the Great (The Antichrist and his Ten Kings hate the whore and destroy Mystery Babylon by burning her with fire). Thus, at the Second Coming, Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, destroys the ‘final Babylon,’ constituting this last Babylon, Babylon the Great. In my scenario, these three ‘Babylons’ are demolished at different points in time by various agents. Getting clear on their respective destruction clears up a great deal of confusion regarding the final decade of world history before Jesus comes to rule and reign. In part, this book attempts to clarify the Bible’s complete picture of what it means by Babylon.

Nevertheless, it is time to deal with the problematic and distressing matter—the Daughter of Babylon and its doomsday that knocks at the door. This outcome is our fate. Those of us who live in the U.S. in 2020 find the challenge much steeper than the ‘Great Recession of 2008-2009.’ It was akin to the Great Depression of 1929-1930. This massive downturn snuffed out The American Dream for all but the very rich. The Middle Class dwindled to a slice of what it once was, leaving only two classes in our country: The Super Rich and the Impoverished Serfs.

What is happening now in the United States is the beginning of ‘payback’ from the biblical God who gave every blessing to Americans—for we disregarded Him in almost every way. This judgment isn’t just a matter of our immorality—it condemns our economy—financial systems that drive Wall Street higher, while Main Street turns into a dumpster fire. Our number is up. No matter how smart we think we are to fix the problems, our greed stands taller.

I remain a believer in the free market, but the markets aren’t truly free. Massive corporations dominate every meaningful playing field. Corporations unfairly lobby Congress and gain every advantage over small businesses. Politicians talk about how small business is the backbone of our economy. But the Pandemic of 2020 has been unsympathetic to most small businesses. Lost, permanently, were millions of jobs that resided in small companies. The Government has bailed out the largest banks without distinction. It has bailed out large corporations like commercial airlines, while contracts keep the Military-Industrial Complex humming along. But by making the Pandemic a political issue—a weapon of power for mayors and governors—a majority of our leaders demanded the closure of small businesses, stamping them out of existence like annoying spiders racing across a kitchen floor.

I believe in capitalism, but most of U.S. capital has already left America, building wealth offshore in Asia and Europe. And America’s capitalists have less and less compassion for the poor and dispossessed. True: Socialism is not the answer. But neither is unbridled greed. Striking a balance requires ethics, playing by the rules, respecting humanity’s dignity and its inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Nevertheless, the Board of Directors of virtually all multi-national U.S. corporations don’t evaluate their actions in light of these precepts. They follow one and only one prime directive: Build wealth for shareholders by pushing endlessly for greater and greater profits.

I believe in a representative democracy, but the Federal government of the United States has ceased being democratic due to its rigged elections (Hillary’s defeat of Bernie in 2016 was one example while making a sham out of the Democratic primaries in 2020 so that an unpopular Joe Biden would be the nominee—and the least popular of all candidates, Kamala Harris, became his Vice-Presidential running mate. These were not the People’s choice. Likewise, our government stopped being the citizen’s representative since the only votes counting in Congress are those purchased by Corporate monies donated to congressional members. The Two-Party system has failed not because it is only two parties—but because it is only one. It is the ‘Status-Quo Party’—with dividing lines based not on ideology but identity. What matters today in determining who gets elected isn’t campaigning on the best policies to solve the country’s problems, but which group of elites can muster support from ‘identities’ they’ve staked out for themselves (i.e., races, genders, and religious constituencies) by putting the various affiliations at odds with one another. Today’s politics comprise a new game of ‘divide and conquer.’ To win, you split up and pull apart. Politicians don’t attempt to calm and connect; they provoke and prick. Today, we are at one another’s throats. If Trump was right that Fake News is America’s Public Enemy Number One, politicians come in a close second. When they reach across the aisle, it’s not to extend a handshake—it’s to strangle the other guy.

And the worst of this method is how they do it. Politicians’ primary means to sew discord is through The Lie. Political speech consists of constant falsehoods. Party leaders have no shame—their consciences have become seared. No longer do they distinguish between truth and error. Instead, their guiding light is, “If it fans the flames, say it, even if it ‘ain’t necessarily so.’”

And this is where the Corporate News Establishment comes into the picture. The majority of the American Public knows that mainstream news fabricates ‘reality’—what it reports is what media management permits. The criteria guiding their decision: Advertising dollars. What is ‘news’ amounts to nothing more than what enhances ratings, thereby creating more significant profit for that network. Management promotes propaganda to heighten division and intensify hatred between opposing identities. For conservatives, we see 90% of the Mainstream Media as a shill for the Democratic Party. Of course, when we look just a bit deeper, we recognize it is a shill for the Establishment. What made Donald Trump so antagonizing to the Media? He wasn’t part of the Establishment, although he was rich. And yes, he was a well-to-do celebrity, but the Ruling Elite Club blackballed his membership request. Conservatives should note that Progressives, the traditional democrats, are not thrilled with the choices made by the current ruling elite either. Furthermore, the elite see Trump’s populism brand as dangerous because it exposes the ineffectiveness of ‘the System.’ Trump is a problem because he does not sing the same ol’ song. Instead, his being a billionaire enables him to be a champion for the underdog. We, in the working class, saw how he annoyed the political partisans—and we cheered. We recognized that he threw caution to the wind, chided political correctness, and mocked the Media—and we roared approvingly. Likewise, we loved it when Trump shut down the White House Press conferences for over a year and lept to Twitter to tweet his ‘drain the swamp’ message to the People. Usually, this worked. To us, even his undiplomatic and sometimes ridiculous statements mattered not at all.

Trump put his finger on the pulse of what Middle-America believed—the Globalists betrayed us. Make no mistake: The Red States, aka Middle America, best represents the Middle Class. And ‘Fly-Over States’ remain the persistent enemy of Globalism. Middle-class Americans know the Globalists continue to pursue Utopia through their 2030 Agenda and their brain-child, the United Nations. Readers: Listen to their lectures, and you continue hearing the rant for social justice on a global basis while hearing no mention of the unemployed and dispossessed in our country.

Once upon a time, the American Dream was the goalpost for everyone. Now it’s not. That vision is the enemy of America’s Elite. Many years ago, the Elite in our country determined how to lift the Third World and make all nation-states ‘equal:’ They planned to debase 99% of Americans by making us wards of the State. Time has passed, but Globalism’s Plan changes not. And now, two decades into the Twenty-first Century, we’ve heard enough and had enough.

That is the climate of our country as we begin the third decade of this century. Some believe we can make America Great Again. I don’t. My hope for much less. There is neither a quick fix nor a feasible long-term one. Our hope is the end game for humanity’s history. We can only make Americans understand where we are at the end of this age.

Yes, we should make things better when we can. We should attempt to preserve our remaining freedoms by electing the best candidates. And we should encourage a cultural makeover, inspiring our populace to be better people—to enhance our environment, neighborhoods, and cities. But my perspective remains that America’s greatness lies in its past.

The Day of the Lord knocks at our door NOW. It’s time to wake up and prepare. For those that don’t believe in Jesus Christ, the Savior of all those who put their trust in Him, your judgment looms. For Believers, our redemption ‘draweth nigh.’

Maranatha. The Lord is coming soon. Will you be numbered with the redeemed or trapped among the condemned?

25 NIGHTMARE things that will happen if Joe Biden wins the election

Sunday, October 11, 2020 by: Mike Adams  (Natural News)

With extremely low voter enthusiasm for Joe Biden, he can only “win” the election by cheating: Rigging the votes, censoring conservative voices online, destroying mail-in ballots for Trump, encouraging dead people to vote Democrat, and so on.

In 2016, the biased media ran with an endless stream of faked polls and projections that claimed Hillary Clinton would almost certainly win the election, but they failed to account for so-called “shy” Trump voters: People who voted for Trump but didn’t talk to pollsters about their votes because of the extremely intolerant attitudes of Leftists who now label all Trump supporters as “actual Nazis.”

Now in 2020, the shy Trump voters are even more numerous. They come out in rallies, and they will reliably head to the polls to vote on November 3rd, but they don’t talk about their support for Trump, or they would be fired from their jobs, harassed by friends and neighbors or even violently attacked on the streets.

This means that in a fair election, absent any cheating, Trump wins by a landslide. But that’s why the lawless Left is doubling down on their cheating this year, pulling out all the stops to suppress every Trump vote and rig as many fake, counterfeit votes for Biden as possible.

Because of their commitment to cheating, Democrats have a chance of stealing the election and claiming they “won.” Make no mistake that in the days after the election, Democrats will magically find hundreds of thousands of “lost” ballots in car trunks, in exactly the right districts in the right states that they need to “win.” This is their classic strategy, and it’s how former Sen. Al Franken stole the vote to become a U.S. Senator. (Read about the “Protect the Vote” effort here to stop Democrat cheating.)

Because of the Democrats’ commitment to cheating, stealing and committing fraud, we must all be prepared for the possibility of Joe Biden cheating his way to victory. Although the real chance of such an outcome is small, it isn’t zero. And voters need to know what Biden and his handlers have in store for America if they seize power in January.

Study this list and share it everywhere, because Democrats have a detailed plan to utterly ruin America and plunge the nation into extreme poverty, destroying the Middle Class while left-wing authoritarians maintain monopoly rule. Here’s a tour of what that plan looks like.

25 NIGHTMARE things that will happen if Joe Biden “wins” the election

#1) Medical tyranny – Biden and his handlers will enact nationwide mandatory face mask rules and nationwide vaccine compliance rules. Those who refuse to comply will be banned from working, using public transportation or appearing in public places.

#2) Pack the court – Democrats will expand the number of US Supreme Court justices to whatever number they need in order to achieve a liberal majority. Because Democrats always cheat. If they can’t win by following the rules, they change the rules! Joe Biden currently says that voters will have to elect him first to find out if he’s going to pack the court. (Hint: Yes, he is.)

#3) Criminalizing “climate deniers” – So-called “climate deniers” will be criminalized, and any who deny the climate change narrative in their online posts or speech will be arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned under President Kamala Harris, who has openly promised to do exactly this.

#4) Medical dictatorship – You will be subjected to endless lockdowns and made a prisoner in your own home, while the left-wing media keeps declaring “new cases” of covid have been found. This will be used to utterly crush the Middle Class and end any constitutional freedoms remaining in America.

#5) Defunding the police – Police departments will be defunded nationwide, leading to a collapse in the rule of law across every major U.S. city. This, in turn, will lead to chaos and violence as criminals run free, supported by left-leaning District Attorneys and left-wing politicians. Remember: They want to replace cops with criminals because the criminals will carry out the jobs that Democrats need done in order to make money from criminal operations (child trafficking, drug running, gun running, kidnapping, political assassinations, etc.)

#6) Reversing Trump-era court nominees – Already Joe Biden is claiming that an appointment of Amy Barrett to the court is somehow “unconstitutional,” and Democrats are now absurdly claiming that Trump is “packing the court” in an illegal way. Once Biden becomes president, Democrats will push to remove Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett from the court, claiming all those appointments were illegal because Trump was an “illegitimate” president. Just watch…

#7) Nationwide bans on all AR-15s and similar semiautomatic firearms – Kamala Harris has already promised that she will use executive order powers to ban all AR-15s “in the first 100 days” of her presidency. This would instantly turn tens of millions of Americans into criminal felons if they don’t agree to turn in all their guns. If Americans comply, they will be completely disarmed while facing extreme government tyranny — exactly the scenario that Democrats want to achieve before they initiate the mass genocide against Christians and conservatives they have planned (see below).

#8) Green New COLLAPSE – Under a Biden presidency, the Green New Deal becomes law, banning all combustion engines and obliterating affordable travel and transportation infrastructure. The will unleash extremely destructive collapses in farming and food production, transportation and personal freedom. (See more details below.)

#9) Rolling blackouts as the power grid fails – The Green New Deal will see coal-fired power plants shuttered and natural gas plants taken offline, resulting in the very same rolling blackouts and power grid failures that California is currently experiencing under its own “green energy” initiatives. Power failures will lead to business shut downs and a massive wave of unemployment and bankruptcy, further crushing the Middle Class in America.

#10) Agricultural collapse leads to mass famine – The Green New Deal, combined with renewed federal regulations and covid lockdowns targeting farms and food facilities, will lead to a catastrophic collapse in food production across America. With combustion engines banned, farms will have to resort to animal-powered plows and harvesting operations that will collapse food production back to 19th century levels. This will result in a 90+% plunge in food output, unleashing mass famine across the nation. Essentially, America will become North Korea in terms of famine and tyranny.

#11) Ending the Senate filibuster – If Democrats gain control of the Senate, they will end the Senate filibuster, and use their newfound majority to ram through every radical law and court appointment they can imagine. This will also be used to redefine the US Supreme Court and pack the court with Democrats. Once Democrats manage to change all the rules in their favor, Republicans will never again have even a sliver of a chance to regain political power in America.

#12) Investigations into deep state traitors are scuttled – With Biden as president, all the DoJ investigations (Barr, Durham) into left-wing deep state traitors like Obama, Brennan, Comey and Clinton will be brought to a screeching halt. No one will be charged or prosecuted for their crimes against America, because the criminals will be back in charge. And don’t even think about Joe Biden being investigated for his illegal bribery and family money laundering schemes involving Ukraine and China.

#13) The end of free speech for America – While Trump and the GOP are beginning to push back against Big Tech censorship and the criminalization of conservative speech, under a Biden presidency, Big Government would merge with Big Tech to create a fascist anti-free speech “online Berlin Wall” of tyranny. Any person uttering any criticism of Kamala Harris would be immediately de-platformed and called a racist, no matter what the content of their criticism. All Black politicians will be granted completely immunity from criticism, and all White people instantly demonized and criticized for the way they were born.

#14) Huge increases in taxes on the working class – While Trump and the GOP passed generous tax cuts that allow the working class to keep more of the money they earn, Biden and Harris have promised to reverse all the Trump tax cuts and hike taxes on working people. They dishonestly claim they would only tax “the rich,” but none of their tax schemes function unless they raise taxes on the Middle Class, since that’s where the bulk of the national wage income is earned. Under Biden, you will work harder to keep less of your own money, while the rapidly expanding government confiscates your wealth and hands it out to People of Color as “reparations.” (See below.)

#15) Surrendering to communist China – Under Barack Obama, America was being deliberately crippled to weaken it while China gained strength to eventually invade and conquer the USA. Joe Biden’s family members took money from China while Biden helped funnel military secrets to the CCP. Under a Biden presidency, Chine will be given increased access to U.S. ports on the West Coast, and an increasing number of communist Chinese troops will be invited to stay in the United States as part of UN-sponsored “peacekeeping” exercises which are nothing more than a cover story for the Chinese invasion of America (that Biden supports, of course).

#16) Banning “ghost guns” nationwide – It is currently legal for U.S. citizens to manufacture their own rifles and pistols for their personal use. These homemade guns are called “ghost guns” because they have no serial numbers. They are one of the last defenses against the tyranny of the gun control mandates of an authoritarian government, because “ghost guns” cannot be tracked and don’t exist on any government paperwork. Expect Biden and Harris to immediately ban ghost guns nationwide, further intruding into the rights described by the Second Amendment. People who currently own ghost guns will be criminalized and told to turn them in or face prosecutions. (Hint: I’m not turning mine in. I’m making more…) Visit GhostGunner.net to purchase a Ghost Gunner machine that allows you to make your own AR-15s at home.

#17) Reparations for Blacks – Under a Biden presidency, efforts will commence to confiscate earnings and assets from White people (who never owned any slaves, by the way) and redistribute that money to Blacks and People of Color (none of whom were ever slaves). This effort is called “reparations” and it goes hand-in-hand with the entire White guilt narrative of the intolerant Left, which now says that White people are evil because of the way they were born, while Black people are superior and must be given extraordinary powers and authority in society (that they didn’t earn) because of the color of their skin, even when those Blacks are incompetent and utterly unqualified for such jobs, which is very often the case. How many Black police chiefs in America are incompetent and unqualified but got the job because they were Black? Answer: Most of them.

#18) Outlawing all private health care insurance – Under the Biden presidency — which will of course quickly become the “Harris presidency” — all forms of private health insurance will be outlawed, and everyone will be forced into a new “Medicare for all” scheme, which is essentially Third World health care with long wait times and “death panels.” As you might expect, FDA attacks against nutrition, herbs and natural remedies will also be ramped up to keep people trapped in the Big Pharma racketeering scheme that pays kickbacks to lawmakers and bureaucrats (in both parties).

#19) Federal bailout of Democrat cities and states – As left-wing cities and states are currently plunging into bankruptcy, President Trump is refusing to place the bailout burden on taxpayers. He doesn’t want American workers from across the country to have to bail out failed left-wing cities and states that are steeped in corruption, waste and fraud. But a Biden / Harris presidency would open the floodgates of federal money, sending trillions of dollars to Democrat jurisdictions to fund their money skimming operations, bloated pension bailouts and fraudulent government contracts that are nothing more than a means to funnel money to wealthy donors who support Democrat politicians. Case in point: Whatever happened to California’s high speed rail project and the billion dollars that funded it?

#20) Rise of the thought police – Under a Biden / Harris presidency, the DoJ and White House would openly encourage universities and local governments across the country to teach Critical Race Theory and punish people for being White. Anyone who expresses a pro-Constitution, pro-Trump or pro-liberty idea will be immediately fired from their job, removed from public office, eliminated from corporate boards and essentially removed from society. The Left will metastasize into Nazi-like authoritarian obedience state, complete with actual thought police who report “thought crimes” to authorities. This will of course be strongly aided by Big Tech’s surveillance and censorship capabilities.

#21) Forced low-income housing in suburbs – This program, originally launched under Obama, sought to invade suburban areas of the country with low-income housing in order to nullify the conservative votes of surburbanites. The program will be renewed under Biden / Harris, and it will force the construction of low-income, crime-ridden apartment complexes in suburban neighborhoods as part of an “integration” program that’s really just a vote rigging scheme. The upshot is that White, Middle Class neighborhoods will be forced to house low-income, crime-ridden housing projects that bring drugs, prostitution and violence to the neighborhood. Combined with the “defund the police” initiatives, this would put suburban areas of the country at the mercy of left-leaning criminal gangs and drug lords, which is exactly the way the Democrats want it.

#22) Door-to-door “purges” of Christians and conservatives – Once the left-wing militants (Antifa, BLM, government thought police) are fully deployed across the nation, they will launch a door-to-door “purge” campaign to hunt down and execute any remaining individuals who are Trump supporters, Christians, conservatives or constitutionalists. No such people can be allowed to remain in the society of the “Left Cult,” where absolute obedience to the LGBT agenda (see below) is required, and people must worship Kamala Harris as a god (or be exterminated). Note that this purge will only take place after the Second Amendment has been obliterated and the population largely disarmed.

#23) LGBT indoctrination of children and legalized pedophilia nationwide – The LGBT agenda will be in full force under a Biden / Harris presidency, with mandatory LGBT indoctrination of all schoolchildren and the nationwide legalization of pedophilia (which has already been partially legalized in California). School teachers will be openly encouraged to sexually “experiment” with young children, because it’s part of the Left’s culture of “grooming” young people for the sexual predators who rise to high positions within the Democrat party. Any who oppose the pedophilia will be called “intolerant” as the Left will claim that “love knows no age.” Much of this effort has already begun, and Netflix is already broadcasting mainstream pedophilia (“Cuties”) as part of the indoctrination program.

#24) The national voting age will be lowered to 14 – What Democrats have come to learn is that young people can be easily brainwashed and forced to obey absurd left-wing demands. The media’s contrived celebration of climate change puppet Greta Thunberg is part of this effort to position teens and children as “world leaders,” demanding that every citizen express total obedience to the whims of teen girls who push globalist lies. Much the same was true with David Hogg, the gun control teen who was engineered and shaped into a gun control fanatic, whom no one could criticize without being viciously smeared by the globalist-controlled media. Under Biden / Harris, this effort will expand from merely having young people positioned as thought leaders to having young people vote! The voting age will be lowered to 14 — or possibly even 12 — so that all future elections are determined solely by indoctrination and social media brainwashing, both of which are incredibly powerful influencing factors for young people who lack wisdom and life experience. When Dems can’t convince intelligent adults to support their Marxism and communism, they simply target the children.

#25) The outlawing of Christianity and the government burning down of all Christian churches nationwide – Finally, the rise to power of the cultist Left and the Godless Democrats will sooner or later require outlawing Christianity and condemning the Bible as “hate speech” (this has already begun on Big Tech platforms). Under the totalitarian rule of Biden / Harris, the government will start burning down Christians churches nationwide, even as many of those churches beg to be left alone because they are promoting LGBT and gay marriage philosophies. But Satan has no tolerance for any church to exist other than temples that worship Satan himself. So every place of worship that recognizes Jesus Christ will be demolished, and every person who dares to practice Christianity in public will be arrested and probably tortured, China-style. This is why Democrat governors are already singling out churches for punitive lockdowns in New York, Michigan, California and elsewhere. It’s a trial run for the complete outlawing of Christian churches.

If you want to live in the nightmare world described above, vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

On the other hand, if the descriptions above sound like some sort of Orwellian nightmare, and you’d rather not live under that tyranny, vote for Trump.

Compare that nightmare to the alternative: A Trump second term, where the enemies of America are defeated

Under a Trump presidency, we’ll get:

Increased law and order, with the violent streets thugs and terrorists being arrested and prosecuted, making America’s cities and suburbs safer.

More efforts to end Big Tech censorship and tyranny and make the internet free for everyone.

Prosecutions of deep state traitors like Obama, Clinton, Comey and Brennan.

Defense of America against the communist Chinese.

Defense of your Second Amendment rights and the right to self-defense.

Lower taxes, lower regulation and lower drug prices.

An ending of lockdowns. No mandatory vaccines at the federal level.

An ending of “Critical Race Theory” and other racist, bigoted Left wing indoctrination tactics.

Federal prosecutions of Antifa and BLM terrorists.

Stronger border protections and national defense against China and Russia.

Greater economic opportunity in the USA, with a renewed manufacturing economy and upward mobility.

Reforms of universities to end their racism against Whites (the DoJ has already launched a lawsuit against Yale).

The choice is clear. If you value freedom, honesty, security and safety, vote for Trump.

If you love demons, pedophilia, fraud, collapse, destruction, suffering, communism and hatred, choose Biden.

Saving Christopher Columbus From The Cultural Arsonists- The movement to deface and destroy our heritage and heroes must be fought by conservatives at every turn.

Posted byKlark JoussOctober 12, 2020

Last year, in my annual commemoration of Columbus Day for The American Conservative, I described the holiday’s detractors as “cultural arsonists” who seek the erasure of the historic American nation’s history and symbols. This past summer, those societal dregs embraced the destruction they’d yearned for all along.

Since George Floyd’s death in May, the most pernicious among us have exploited an opportunity to take to the streets and destroy with impunity. Their targets have included monuments, especially ones to Christopher Columbus, as well as businesses, homes, and livelihoods.

A Columbus statue in Boston was decapitated—for the second time since it was erected in 1979—and then removed by the city. In 1927, the first statue of Columbus in the southern United States was erected in Richmond, Virginia, despite opposition from the anti-Catholic Ku Klux Klan; 90 years later, channeling similar hatreds, vandals tore down the statue, set it on fire, and threw it into a lake. It was joined by a Columbus statue in Baltimore’s Little Italy, which was tossed into the inner harbor. To add insult to injury, the Baltimore City Council is looking to rededicate the city’s Columbus Obelisk—erected in 1792, the United States’ oldest monument to Columbus—as the “Victims of Police Violence Monument.”

Guns have been referred to as “the great equalizer,” and there’s no weapon which can come close to them in that regard.

A lot of the popularity of firearms is due to the fact that anyone can use them effectively, not only the strong and agile. The young, the old, men, women and child can take up firearms in defense of home and family and do so effectively. But what do you do if you can’t use a gun – or if you don’t have a gun — to protect yourself? To promote greater tolerance, understanding, and opportunity for Italian immigrants, sculptor Carlo Brioschi contributed statues of Christopher Columbus to beautify American cities, one in his adopted home of St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1931, and another in Chicago in 1933. The former was pulled down by Native Americans (as state troopers apathetically watched) and the latter was removed by orders of Mayor Lori Lightfoot. In less than six months, over 36 statues of Christopher Columbus have been removed from the public square by either the mob’s chain or mayor’s edict. It’s not unlike the Reign of Terror, where statues of saints were guillotined to obliterate any memory of pre-revolutionary France.

These curs have a new revolution in mind, one that repudiates anything that doesn’t adhere to the twisted ethics of the progressive left. That includes the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, where our nation had the sense of mind (and identity) to venerate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ voyage. The Chicago World’s Fair—also known as the Columbian Exposition—was one of the most significant cultural events in U.S. history, with profound effects on architecture, entertainment, and the adoption of new technology. One of the most popular exhibits was the life-size replicas of Columbus’ three ships—the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria—which were constructed in Spain before they sailed to Chicago, where they performed a theatrical rendition of the European arrival.

Past generations of Americans understood greatness and why it’s commendable, unlike the thankless iconoclasts of today. Paying homage to the men and women of the past is about recognizing and appreciating extraordinary feats. The grandeur of Columbus is succinctly encapsulated by 1970s comedian and television host Flip Wilson. “As a kid, my idol—and he’s still my idol—of all the great American heroes, my idol is Christopher Columbus,” Wilson jovially told a comedy club audience. “What a great thing that was, discovering America. I wouldn’t have found it. I don’t know where you people would have been, I wouldn’t have found it.”

The sledgehammer reckoning isn’t only destined for navigators either. “Our Taliban have moved on, past Columbus and the Confederate generals, to dislodge and dishonor the Founding Fathers and their patriot sons,” wrote this magazine’s co-founder Pat Buchanan. Weak-willed conservatives who for decades have been too cowardly to defend Columbus or the Confederate soldier are receiving their earned punishment. These cultural arsonists now seek to expunge the Founding Fathers from the American consciousness. “Slave owners should not be honored with monuments in public spaces. We have museums for that, which also provide better context,” writes columnist Charles Blow in The New York Times. That would include 10 of the first dozen U.S. presidents, including the author of the Declaration of Independence, the father of the Constitution, and the namesake of the nation’s capital. According to Blow, human history is nothing more than a “horrible truth,” undeserving of remembrance or admiration. Blow himself is motivated by a moral absolutism that he is either unable or unwilling to separate from the past. While Blow is correct that morality is both universal and undeniable, his preference to live a desolate, ahistorical existence is nothing short of ghoulish.

Blow’s cohort is composed of our society’s mediocrities—the corporate press, the phony academics, the diversity consultants and race hustlers—who malign Christopher Columbus and his kin because achievement is intolerable to their insecurities.

This caste is represented politically by people like Senator Tammy Duckworth, who supports “having a national dialogue” on whether or not monuments of George Washington should be smashed since “we should listen to the argument there.How can one reconcile Duckworth’s service in the U.S. Army with her clear antipathy for the American nation and its founders? It’s because Tammy Duckworth is a soldier for military empire—not a living nation—who wears her approximation of American identity like second-hand clothes.

In his Fourth of July message, Democratic nominee Joe Biden promised he’d “rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country.” Biden’s auxiliaries have been clear that racism in the United States goes as deep as its soul. European colonization was genocide, and Christopher Columbus its primary architect. The existence of the historic American nation is a disgrace that must be blotted out, along with its heritage, traditions, and heroes.

Remember that this November. Your ancestors will be on the ballot.

A Quick Reminder of How Venezuela Ran Out of Food: Does This Look Familiar?

Monday, October 12, 2020 10:34

We’d all like to believe that the United States is on the road to economic recovery and that things are going to get better. Everyone wants to think the store shelves are just a few cargo ships away from being refilled. People want to believe that once 2020 is over, life will return to “normal” and that we’re just having a really bad year.

But someone pointed out an article I published four and a half years ago and when you look at the things which happened there and compare them to our situation, you may notice some uncanny similarities.

Here’s how Venezuela ran out of food.

In February of 2016, I wrote about what an economic collapse really looks like, using Venezuela as an illustration. The article begins when prepping began to be frowned upon by the Venezuelan government.

In 2013, many began to suspect that the outlook for Venezuela was grim when prepping became illegal. The Attorney General of Venezuela, Luisa Ortega Díaz, called on prosecutors to target people who are “hoarding” basic staples with serious sanctions.

Shortly thereafter, grocery stores instituted a fingerprint registry to purchase food and supplies. Families had to register and were allotted a certain amount of supplies to prevent “hoarding.” (source)

The United States:

Early in 2020, supplies began to be difficult to find due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the potential of a lockdown. When folks couldn’t find basics like toilet paper, fingers immediately began to point at “preppers” and “hoarders.” The word “hoarding” is being repeatedly used throughout news reports. They’re already working to paint preppers as bad and selfish people. They’re already vilifying those who hurry out to fill any gaps in their supplies. They’re making it seem like a mental illness to get prepared for what could potentially be a long stretch of time at home with only the supplies you have on hand.

This is a frequent trick of propagandists everywhere. Repeat a word often enough and suddenly everyone begins using it. Everyone begins to believe that the people labeled with an ugly word are terrible, selfish, and threats to decency. (source)

This dialogue is still in place, with people being shamed for large purchases, when in fact, they’re simply getting necessities for a large family. A friend of mine with a large family has said she’d have to shop every two days with the original limits stores posted to keep everyone in her household well-fed. 

Venezuela:

It wasn’t long until the basics were incredibly difficult to acquire.

Then, just over a year ago, it became even more apparent that the country was falling. when long lines for basic necessities such as laundry soap, diapers, and food became the norm rather than the exception. Thousands of people were standing in line for 5-6 hours in the hopes that they would be able to purchase a few much-needed items. (source)

The United States:

Writers on this website have talked about the shelves being cleared back in March, what we may see in shortage after halting many imports from China, and the fact that in most parts of the country, the supply chain is clearly broken.

People from all over the country have reported in the comments the bare spots in their local stores, with a few exceptions who say that everything in their part of the nation is back to normal. Many areas still have limits on how many packages of toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and canned goods customers can purchase months after the original panic-fueled shopping sprees.

Venezuela:

Get in the Fight! Tithe to our Ministry and Help Finish Recording God's Word Seen on Every Page!

Shortly after the story broke to the rest of the world, the propaganda machine shifted into high gear. As the government began to ration electricity, it was announced that this was not due to economic reasons at all, but instead was a measure of their great concern for the environment. (source)

The United States:

We’re looking at you, California, where PG&E, the largest power provider in the state has shut off the power to people in rural areas repeatedly over the past couple of years to “prevent wildfires.” Millions faced the hottest days of the summer without electricity.

Venezuela:

As stores struggled to provide the essentials to customers, the government stepped in to “help.”

I Killed Bruce Lee with the Death Touch - Caution: Don't Use it Unless Your Life is in DANGER!

As the situation continued to devolve, farmers in Venezuela were forced to hand over their crops last summer. They assumed control of essential goods like food, and began putting retail outlets out of business. Then, once they had control of the sales outlets, they began forcing farmers and food manufacturers to sell anywhere from 30-100% of their products to the state at the price the state opted to pay, as opposed to stores and supermarkets.

But that wasn’t enough to keep the population fed. (Isn’t it astonishing how much less motivated people are to produce food and supplies when they are no longer allowed to benefit from their hard work? Historically, collectivism and farming have never gone successfully hand in hand.) This January, the government told citizens that they would need to produce their own food. The Ministry of Urban Farming was created to oversee this. While self-reliance sounds great, it isn’t so great in Venezuela. Just so the urban farmers don’t get too self-reliant, a registry of the crops and livestock will be required. (And obviously, they’ve already proven that they have no issue forcing farmers to hand over what they’ve produced.) (source)

The United States:

As our supply chain devolved, it was learned that farmers in the United States were unable to get their products to the market due to logistics issues, closed packaging plants, and a totally different marketplace. The President signed an Executive Order to force people to go back to work at meat packaging plants and also tried to organize a way to get food that was just being thrown out to the people who desperately needed it.

Processing plants across the country are shutting down as more and more employees become ill. At least ten large meat processing plants have closed due to the virus. Distribution issues have farmers dumping thousands of gallons of milk, plowing under vegetables in the fields, and leaving potatoes to rot.

A lot of the food being produced was destined for restaurants, hotels, and cruise ships. Diverting it to grocery stores and the millions of people using food banks right now (because they didn’t get their money from unemployment yet, remember?) is unfortunately not as easy as it should be. This article explains some of the issues with getting food to hungry people.

One of the issues processing. With meat, in particular, this is difficult – most folks aren’t even going to be willing to process their own chickens and it’s wildly unrealistic to imagine a family in the city processing a cow or a pig. With produce, it becomes a little bit easier – anyone can wash fruits and vegetables – but employees are still needed to harvest the food.

A lot of that scarcity could be remedied if we could reallocate things – if janitorial supplies could be sold to the general public, if farmers could sell directly to stores or consumers, and if farmers could donate unpurchased items to food banks.

To summarize, farmers are losing billions of dollars and people are going without food, while the food we have is left to rot. Hopefully, President Trump’s new 19 billion dollar plan will allow the federal government to play matchmaker between frustrated farmers and hungry families. (source)

So while nobody has insisted farmers hand over their crops without compensation, the government is clearly getting involved in the distribution of food.

Venezuela:

Eventually, all the measures the government of Venezuela took to hide the catastrophic collapse from citizens could hold up no longer.

Venezuela is out of food.

After several years of long lines, rationing, and shortages, the socialist country does not have enough food to feed its population, and the opposition government has declared a “nutritional emergency.” This is just the most recent nail in the beleaguered country’s slow, painful economic collapse.

Many people expect an economic collapse to be shocking, instant, and dramatic, but really, it’s far more gradual than that. It looks like empty shelves, long lines, desperate government officials trying to cover their tushes, and hungry people. For the past two years, I’ve been following the situation in Venezuela as each shocking event has unfolded. Americans who feel that our country would be better served by a socialist government would be wise to take note of this timeline of the collapse. (source)

It only took 3 years from the first report (about making “hoarding” illegal) for the once oil-rich country to fall into a ruin so extreme that there wasn’t enough food for everyone.

The United States:

While we are by no means at the point where there is no more food, there are all sorts of warning signs that day could come – and sooner than expected. Many aspects of our system are crumbling, the supply chain is definitely broken, stores are already preparing for the second wave of shortages, and a simulation has predicted a 400% increase in the price of food by 2030.

An important side note

I’m sure it’s merely a coincidence but Venezuelans lost their firearms at around the same time “hoarding” was deemed illegal.

Were you aware that Venezuela banned guns for private citizens a mere four years ago, in 2012? Although the country was already in trouble, it seems like that was the beginning of the end.

Under the reign of Hugo Chavez, the government introduced a law that banned personal purchases of firearms and ammunition in an attempt to “improve security and cut crime”. The law was designed to keep guns in the hands of only police, military, and some security companies.

At the time, Chavez’s government said that “the ultimate aim is to disarm all civilians.” Shortly after the law passed, Chavez lost a battle to cancer, and bus driver Nicolas Maduro became the new president.

Maduro invested $47 million in “disarmament centers” in 2014, where citizens could turn in their firearms without fear of repercussions. This was at about the same time as the government declared that prepping was illegal and those “hoarding” could be detained on criminal charges and when the country instituted a fingerprint registry for purchasing groceries so that they could ensure people only purchased what they were allotted. (source)

Most readers of this website are well aware of concentrated efforts across the United States to undermine the Second Amendment over the past 9 years it has been operating. For more information on these efforts, check out these articles.

How far will we fall in the United States?

This side-by-side comparison is certainly not identical to the crisis in Venezuela, but there are enough similarities that you should be very uncomfortable with our situation. We strongly encourage efforts to become more self-reliant, stocking up on food and other supplies, and frugality in the days ahead.

DANGER - Shield Your Smart Meter! Protect Your Family from Illuminati Kill Grid!

Those who are prepared may still struggle but they’ll be far better off than those who are completely blindsided by the continued collapse.

Is Canada Handing Off the Western Provinces to the CHICOMS As a Prelude to Invasion of the United States?

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, October 11, 2020 - 15:25.

The Western portion of Canada is not just allowing the CHICOM’s Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) to be present in British Colombia, the PLA is taking over.

Last evening as I was being interviewed on a station in Kentucky, a Canadian ex-pat called in and confirmed everything I am to say here.

The Canadian government signed a secret agreement which allowed the CHICOMS to bring in their troops to protect Chinese property that Trudeau allowed the Chinese to build. The following paragraphs will describe what four different Canadians have described about what life is like in an around Vancouver. First of all, the homeless are isolated in Oppenheimer Park. They are being separated from the general population. They are monitored and guarded and one Canadian told me, who got to close and was told to vacate the area or be arrested, that the guards for the park are strange. The regular police are seen less and less. More frequently, the guards are Chinese who speak perfect English but refuse to answer and in-depth questions about what is going in the park.

One Canadian told me that his cousin is a military outfit that has largely been transferred from BC to points “back east”. He is intimating that the military is being withdrawn and the CHICOMS are taking over. He told me that there is a distinct feeling of impending doom. Everyone is on pins and needles. Even the authorities are not enforcing social distancing and the wearing of masks. “It is like it doesn’t matter anymore, something much bigger than coronavirus is coming”.

Stanley Park (Island) is no longer accessible to the public. It is guarded by Canadians but everyone in the immediate area, knows that the Chinese are on the Island. A former dock worker, who recently lost his job, told me that the ports are in lockdown. There is still activity in the ports, but it is like they had to get all the civilians off the docks so they could not see what is coming and what is coming are believed to be massive amounts of Chinese men and material to join the massive amounts of Chinese that are already in the city. He said the Chinese control the port where he was at.

There is one person who has been regularly communicating with me who is a position of relative power. His exact position, located in Vancouver, will be kept unidentified for security reasons, told me that the CHICOMS are headquartered in Prince Rupert. He has seen the attack helicopters and troop transport helicopters . He says that Chinese combat troops can cover the entire Province within 90 minutes but he does not believe covering British Colombia (BC) is the goal. At Stanley Park, he said he saw a largely scaled-down version of the stadium that the Seattle Seahawks play football. He recognized it for what it was immediately because he has been to the facility dozens of times. It is his belief that this small makeshift structure was built to rehearse the housing of large amounts of people. For the 60 minutes he was in the area on business, he said that the focus was not on what was going inside of the structure, but on controlling traffic coming into the area in large canopy trucks. I asked him if this was a FEMA camp facility in his opinion. I had to fully explain the nuances behind my question and he said the use of trucks might indicate that they were planning to bring large amounts of people to the facility. He did also say that he knows that for a fact that the CHICOMS are practicing amphibious landings near the area. He further stated that local cops are very “pissed off:, but everyone is in stand-down mode, but nobody is comfortable with what is happening. He said if he was wrong that the mini-structure he witnessed was not in Seattle as he suspected, he is fearful, the practice is for Canadians not Americans, at least initially. He also told me that organized crime is down dramatically, especially in the area of the docks. He thought it was due to the presence of CHICOMS who are taking control of the ports.

It is clear that key parts of Western Canada are being handed off to the CHICOMS. I maintain that Trudeau has struck a military deal with the CHICOMS. Why? With true north moving, melting ice caps has made Canada the unquestionable dominant power in freshwater supplies. With water levels in many world metropolitan areas dropping to 500 feet, freshwater will become a valuable commodity. Canada will become the 1980’s version of the Saudi Arabia, only the product will not be oil, it will be water. However, Canada does not have the military reserve to protect it supplies and transport going forward.

Trudeau should have reached out to the United States for this reason. But why didn’t they? Red the Deagel Report which says that 89% of Americans will be dead in just over four years. The Chinese obviously convinced Trudeau that China will be the only country left standing that can protect their water resources. This makes sense because America has enjoyed a tremendous relationship with Canada as the border represents the largest undefended border in the world. I have written about how China is initiating their “belt and road” strategy in in CANZUK (ie Australia (gone), New Zealand (going), UK (losing), and Canada (nearly lost). Lost, losing nearly lost? This is the infrastructure of all 4 countries to the CHICOMS. It is clear that China is separating these four English speaking countries from America as a pre-emptive action to invasion. This is obviously being done to separate America from major trading partners and military allies. This also gives China control over the South Pacific. America is very close to standing alone.

If California falls after the election and leaves the union as CALEXIT threatens to do, Pearl Harbor would have to be abandoned. The CHICOMS will control Washington, Oregon, and California, all who have pledged to withdraw from America if they do not like the result of the election. This will provide a major beachhead for the CHICOMS.

I showed this article to a former military analyst and he said contingency plans to house West coast military facilities will be transferred to East coast control, are in existence but he did not know if they have been rehearsed. This is merely a status report on the anecdotal accounts of four Canadians acquired over an 8 week period. I believe these accounts to be accurate because there are other accounts similar to these, for example in the broadcasts of Sarah Westall. This story will obviously be continued as more information is acquired.

Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz: 'Churches Might Be One of the Biggest Propagators of Racist Ideology'

Carl Lentz, lead pastor of Hillsong East Coast, said recently he believes the Christian church may be "one of the biggest propagators of racist ideology in our country."

"There's a difference between your principle and your practical," explained Lentz during the latest episode of his podcast Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man. "So if my principle at Hillsong, New York City, is 'we value all people,' practically speaking, you should be able to see that."

Lentz was talking with former NFL linebacker and ESPN sports analyst Emmanuel Acho, who said "the most powerful person in America is a religious white man."

Acho pointed out that, though segregation legally ended in the 1960s, Sunday mornings have remained ethnically separated.

"It's hard to listen to a preacher preach if you know that that preacher believes in systems that are hurting people," said Lentz. "So it's safer sometimes to go to a black church ... [because] I don't know if I can trust somebody who claims to love Jesus and professes to teach me about this man, yet you're silent on issues that hurt my people."

As for why more churches—predominantly white preachersdon't speak out about the issue of racism, Lentz suggested it's just "too much work."

"The moment you start looking into this, you realize, 'Oh, wow, this goes all the way to the top. This is in our church choir. This is in our church administration. This is in the way we've taught the Bible. And there are a lot of Christians who set out to clean house until they find out how close to home it might come.'"

He went on to argue Christian leaders in the U.S. have been ignoring race "for decades."

The Countdown Has Started: Liberal Insanity Levels Over The Next Ten Days Will Reach A Fevered Pitch As The Senate Confirms Amy Coney Barrett For The Supreme Court

by Susan Duclos · All News PipeLine  Published October 11, 2020 · Updated October 11, 2020

FLASHBACK: For anyone on the internet, or that reads the news, or watches their local news on television, it is impossible to forget the spectacle of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation to the Supreme Court hearings.

The interruptions, screaming, complaining, whining, constant demands to delay the hearing….. and that was all just from Democrat Senators.

Things got much worse when the hearings actually began, as liberal protesters gathered outside the building, chanting, wearing those God-awful red and white “Handmaiden’s Tale” outfits, with claims that having Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court would strip the rights from women, turning them into nothing more than slaves. Two years later, women still have their rights.

The hyperbole was unbelievable, and the antics inside the hearing room tuned the entire process into a circus show. Men and women having to be dragged or carried out by Senate security after heckling the proceedings, and screaming in protest, holding up protest signs and in one unforgettable instance, a man, dressed as a woman with a bright red substance down the front of his groin and legs. DING, DING, DING – ROUND TWO BEGINS

Monday, October 12, 2020, confirmation hearings begin for Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s third nominee for the Supreme Court, following the death of Ruth Bader-Ginsberg.

Though expedited, the process will follow the same framework as the previous two Supreme Court confirmation hearings under the Trump administration, Graham said on Fox News.

That means Barrett’s hearings will last four days, during which she will give opening statements, field questions from Senators and listen to testimony from outside witnesses.

“The nominee will be challenged, and that’s appropriate to challenge the nominee, but if they treat Judge Barrett like they did Justice Kavanaugh it’s going to blow up in [Democrats’] face big time,” Graham said. Democrat politicians have just about done everything in their limited power to derail the hearings start date, but as the GOP is in control of the Senate, and the House of Representatives have no say whatsoever in the confirmation process, there is not much Democrats can do except whine, complain and throw temper tantrums.

Of course the establishment media is offering them every platform opportunity possible to do so.

Welcome to the beginning of round two: Ding! Ding! DING!

(ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER: Due to unexpected medical and emergency repair bills, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this ‘Info-war’ for America at this most critical time in US history as we approach the 2020 election during a time of systematic ‘big tech’ censorship and widespread Democrat corruption.) THE ATTACKS AGAINST CONEY BARRETT HAVE BEGUN

With Kavanaugh, Democrats dugs deep and attempted to derail his confirmation by bringing forth a woman, Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed the three decades earlier, while Kavanaugh was in college, he inappropriately touched her.

Her claim was there was no “rape.” She didn’t remember when. She didn’t remember where. She couldn’t remember how she got home afterwards. Her best friend who was supposedly there claimed she didn’t remember that ever happening.

Democrat leaders pulled more people from under the rocks, all much less credible and not one with any type of proof or evidence whatsoever.

Kavanaugh was confirmed and the whole country saw the underhanded and unethical tactics that were used against Kavanaugh.

Fast forward and we are seeing the same claims about womens’ rights being under attack, how women will suffer by having Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court, etc, etc……

With Barret, since they cannot pay anyone to claim she “sexually assaulted” them back in college, they are attacking the adoption of two of her children, and despite it being a violation of the constitution, they are trying to attack the fact that Coney Barrett is a woman of faith, and highly religious.

Fortunately, Democrats’ initial attacks haven’t landed a punch on her.

The media once again is playing the propaganda arm for the Democrat party and have started their attacks as well, as seen in the short clip below: Once again the attacks do not seem to doing her any damage, and seem to be just “preaching to the choir,” giving liberals more reason to froth at the mouth, while further convincing conservatives that the Democrats/Media are anti-religion and hypocrites because they claim to be for feminism, yet they only support women that agree with their ideology. HOW FAR WILL DEMOCRATS/LIBERALS GO THIS TIME?

As the confirmation hearings and process is slated to begin on Monday, October 12, with Republicans making it clear they are aiming for a final vote and confirmation of Coney Barrett on October 22, 2020, I admit to a type of morbid curiosity as to what plots and schemes liberals have up their sleeves in their desperate attempts to delay or derail the entire confirmation.

North Korea’s massive new missile could help Iran threaten Israel

North Korea’s military parade and its arsenal, along with Iran’s progress on missile technology, illustrate how these countries have achieved success in the last decade.

By SETH J. FRANTZMAN OCTOBER 11, 2020 19:21

North Korea’s massive military parade showcased an arsenal that should raise eyebrows in the Middle East. It wheeled out its Hwasong-15 ballistic missile and a giant intercontinental ballistic missile that had to be pulled on a transport vehicle with 11 axles. This is a monster and reports call it a “strategic weapon” that appears to threaten the globe.

Years after the Trump administration believed personal diplomacy would make North Korea into a compliant actor, the regime has new weapons. Because Iran is working with North Korea, this could mean Tehran could threaten Israel with similar missiles or shared technology, as it has in the past. France24 reported that experts said more new weapons were unveiled at this parade than in previous editions. China appeared pleased with President Xi Jinping congratulating Pyongyang on the anniversary.

Many internet sleuths are out there digesting the new photos of the massive missile and the transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) it rode on. Among these are Fabian Hinz and Tal Inbar. The length of these TELs has grown as well, from eight in 2012 to 11 in 2020. Last year it was reported that North Korea was mass-producing ballistic missile transporters and parts for them.

Questions remain about North Korea’s new missile. It is likely the largest road-mobile ICBM in the world and is thought to be liquid-fueled. The consensus is that this missile, if it works, is a threat. The giant TEL is also a threat, apparently, because it shows the capabilities of North Korea in building these transport vehicles. North Korea has been doing a number of tests in recent years. Last August it carried out five tests in several weeks using transporters and shorter range ballistic missiles. Those missiles flew around 400km. In all there were 13 missile tests last year. Harry Kazianis, of The National Interest and an expert on North Korea, noted that the new ICBM that North Korea paraded “seems to be a derivative of what was tested back in late 2017, known as the Hwason-15, is much bigger and clearly more powerful than anything in DPRK’s arsenal.”

This has major ramifications for Israel because reports on September 20 indicated that Iran and North Korea had resumed collaboration. Iran has been increasing its ballistic missile arsenal in recent years, including ranges and precision of the missiles. Iran also has a much better drone, loitering munition, cruise missile and radar units than in the past.

This is what is important to know: Reuters wrote on September 20 that Iran and North Korea had resumed work together on missiles, based on an anonymous US official. The report came out as the US was pushing sanctions and as Washington warned against the expiration of an arms embargo on Iran. Mark Episkopos at The National Interest noted in a September 23 article that Iran has been one of North Korea’s best customers in the past, a client in the 1980s for missile technology that eventually went on to acquire the medium-range Hwason-7 ballistic missile. Iran has used these missiles as a model for its own rapidly expanding missile program. The article noted that the Hwasong-7 was the basis for the Shahab-3 in Iran. Other accounts say the North Korean Nodong-1 missile is a basis for the Shahab-3. Further the National Interest article notes, based on US State and Treasury Department reports, that Iran’s Shahid Movahed Industries has cooperated with North Korea on long range missiles. These could include the Hwasong-12, Hwasong-14 and Hwasong-15 missiles.

Interest in how Iran and North Korea work together has confounded analysts for several decades. Reports indicate that North Korea helped Pakistan and Iran in the 1990s and early 2000s, including on transport vehicles. Russian diplomats even told the US they were concerned about the Iran-North Korea cooperation on missiles in 2009. At the time US officials and others felt that the missile programs were not well-developed and experts scoffed at the idea that North Korea could successfully sell its larger missiles abroad. However, 2010 reports showed alarm bells were ringing as US intelligence reported that Iran had obtained 19 advanced missiles from North Korea that could hit Moscow and Europe. These were BM-25 (Hwasong-10) missiles and could give Iran “building blocks” for better missiles. Indeed, they did.

John S. Park at The Diplomat has argued that this relationship between Tehran and Pyongyang is symbiotic. They both benefited over the years, and they both built off lessons learned from Russia’s role with Iran in 2005. North Korea and Iran signed a technological agreement in September 2012. This has included work on a three stage rocket to put a satellite in orbit. North Korea found success in that program in a 2012 launch. Part of the rocket was thought to be linked to Iran’s successful Safir rocket. Iran had launched the Omid satellite in 2009. A Safir launch failed last year, in a highly public incident where Trump tweeted a photo of the launch site, but the Qased rocket put the Iranian Nour military satellite into space in April.

Cooperation has grown in different ways. In the 1980s North Korean advisors were in Iran. A report at Atlantic Council notes that the cooperation may include two North Korean companies, Green Pine and Komid. In addition, the US Office of Naval Intelligence has said North Korea modernized aspects of Iran’s navy. DW in Germany also reports that Russia is involved with both countries.

There is much that is not known about the North Korea link to Iran. How does proliferation work, are there advisors in Iran, who is helping who and how, are all key questions. While North Korea once had much of the know-how in missiles, it is clear that Iran’s indigenous program has now made real achievements.

In 2017 Uzi Rubin, Founding Director of the Israel Missile Defense Organization, wrote the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies that in 2017, when Iran unveiled the Khorramshar ballistic missile, that it was showcasing how it had built on North Korean expertise. He noted that together the missiles of Iran and North Korea had origins in the Makeyev missile factory in Russia, where the R-27 missile was built. The R-27 was converted to a mobile ground-launched missile, he writes. This became the basis for the Shahab-3 in Iran with 2,000km range and payload of 750kg. Rubin warned, as early as 2006, that Iran’s missiles were “steadily increasing” in range.

What might come next? Iran has sent ballistic missiles to its militia allies Iraq, according to reports in 2018 and 2019. It has also sent Shahab variants to Syria, according to reports in 2018. It has also improved upon the missiles it has, from the Khorramshahr launch in 2017 to new naval ballistic missiles unveiled on September 27, 2020. It fired short range missiles over the Strait of Hormuz in 2018, test fired a medium range Shahab-3 missile in July 2019, and a missile capable of reaching Israel and Europe in December 2018. This was thought to be another Khorramshahr missile. Iran also unveiled the Raad 500 short range missile in February, used the precision Qiam and Fateh ballistic missiles against US bases in January 2020, unveiled a new version of the Zulfiqar missile in 2019, fired Fateh 110 missiles at Kurdish dissidents in Iraq in 2018 and targeted ISIS in Syria with Zulfiqar and Qiam missiles in October 2018. Reports said it also fired missiles at ISIS in Syria in 2017. Sources reported them to be either Shahab or upgraded Fateh 110s. In short Iran is using its missiles a lot more and using them in Iraq and Syria and exporting their technology.

This brings us back to the current situation. North Korea’s military parade and its arsenal that it built, despite sanctions, along with Iran’s progress on missile technology, illustrate how these countries have achieved success in the last decade despite efforts to prevent them developing larger missiles and better guidance for them, as well as satellite capabilities. Reports continue to warn that Iran could construct a nuclear weapon by the end of the year. Iran’s missile program increases that threat by giving Iran a potential way to deliver a weapon. North Korea’s continued success in building missiles and TELs to move them around appears to be a warning to the US and Asia. Iran similarly is pushing the envelope on similar warnings.

Azerbaijan, Armenia report shelling of cities despite truce

By AIDA SULTANOVAyesterday

BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) — Azerbaijan on Sunday accused Armenia of attacking its cities and villages in violation of the cease-fire deal brokered by Russia that seeks to end the worst outbreak of hostilities in the separatist Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said that Armenian forces shelled villages in the Aghdam, Terter, Aghjabedi and Fizuli regions of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijani authorities earlier accused Armenian forces of firing missiles at Ganja, the country’s second largest city, and the city of Mingachevir overnight.

Nine civilians were killed and more than 30 others wounded in Ganja, officials said. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev called the attack on the city “a war crime” and a “gross” violation of the cease-fire on Twitter, promising “a befitting retaliation.”

Nagorno-Karabakh’s military officials denied attacking Ganja and said the territory’s army is observing the cease-fire. They added that during the night Azerbaijani forces shelled Stepanakert, the region’s capital, and other towns in violation of the truce. The recent bout of fighting between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces started Sept. 27 and left hundreds of people dead in the biggest escalation of the decades-old conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh since a separatist war there ended in 1994. The region lies in Azerbaijan but has been under control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia.

The foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a truce in Moscow after Russian President Vladimir Putin had brokered it in a series of calls with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian.

The cease-fire took effect at noon Saturday, after talks in Moscow that were sponsored by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The deal stipulated that the cease-fire should pave the way for talks on settling the conflict.

If the truce had held, it would have marked a major diplomatic coup for Russia, which has a security pact with Armenia but also cultivated warm ties with Azerbaijan.

However, minutes after the cease-fire took force, both sides accused each other of continuing attacks in violation of the deal.

The situation in the region was “relatively calm” on Sunday morning, according to Nagorno-Karabakh leader Arayik Harutyunyan, with only minor hostilities along the front line. But it was unclear whether the calm would last, he said.

Later Sunday, Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanian reported attacks by Azerbaijani forces on southern and northeastern directions, saying that Nagorno-Karabakh’s forces “resolutely suppress all enemy operations.”

Nagorno-Karabakh’s army in a statement Sunday promised a “disproportionately harsh” response if Azerbaijan “continues to violate the cease-fire.” The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said that “the political and military leadership of Armenia bears the responsibility for the aggravation of the situation in the region.” Azerbaijan’s president said in an interview with the Russian RBC news outlet that “if the Armenian side is committed to the cease-fire regime ... the phase of political settlement will begin.”

Associated Press writers Daria Litvinova in Moscow, and Avet Demourian in Yerevan, Armenia, contributed to this report.

Kirk Cameron: 'God Is Still on His Throne' amid Season of Uncertainty

John Paluska | ChristianHeadlines.com Contributor | Friday, October 9, 2020

Kirk Cameron, in an interview with The Christian Post, spoke about his new 2-part series called, Think, Pray, Vote with Kirk Cameron, which aims to help Americans manuver through the 2020 election. In the first part of the show, which aired last Friday on TBN, Cameron talked with Pastor Tony Evans, Christian and conservative commentator Eric Metaxas, and Evangelist Franklin Graham. The second part is set to air on Friday, October 9.

The goal of the show is to analyze current political issues through the lens of the gospel and challenge believers to think and pray before casting their vote.

"I think if someone had said to us six months ago, ‘There's a virus that's going to shut down every business, you're not going to be able to go to church for Easter, and your kids are not going to graduate from high school ... I think we would have said, ‘That's nuts. You're crazy. What kind of conspiracy theory person are you?’ And here we are today with just everything upside down,” Cameron said in the interview.

The coronavirus is just one of the many issues covered on the TBN special. The special will cover racism, coronavirus, and the 2020 election in addition to other political hot button topics. As for the show’s format, Cameron asks the guests questions who each individually answer the questions through a biblical lens.

"I find this time really interesting. I think we have to remember that God is still on His throne and all throughout time, He's used everything from the weather, to enemy nations, to the sin of His own people, and the prayers of the people of God to work together to accomplish His purposes," Cameron said.

How to say no to the sexualization of children

By John Stonestreet and Maria Baer

The most common response we received to Wednesday’s commentary, in which I argued that the sexual revolution is progressing to the next stage involving children, was “So, what can we do?” It’s exactly the right question for Christians to ask, and one to which we were already committed to answer. Never should Christians talk about the Fall, even the worst of human depravity, outside of the context of the victory of Jesus Christ, who has overcome the world.

While the cultural indicators do point, I believe, to the further mainstreaming of pedophilia, a Christian worldview places even the most chaotic and distressing of moments within a larger Story. Christ has risen from the dead. He is Lord. And, He is making all things new. Thus, as Christian philosopher Alvin Plantinga reminds us, whenever we talk of evil, we are talking about a very real foe, but a defeated foe.

Christians join what theologians call the “already-but-not-yet” work of the Kingdom, in what St. Paul called “the ministry of reconciliation,” in a number of ways: by championing what is good, innovating what is missing, restoring what’s broken or, especially in this case, confronting what is evil.

In this case, social media and the internet play an outsized role in the exploitation and sexualization of kids. An honest look at nearly every metric available of the broad outcomes of widespread social media use, especially for kids, it’s clearly a net negative. It may very well be time to consider getting off of social media or, at the very least, keeping our kids off of social media. At a minimum, children should never be left to social media or, for that matter to any use of the internet unsupervised, especially if they lack the maturity to understand it and self-govern.

I will say this a different way: It’s stupid, in the Proverbial sense of “foolishness,” to give students unfettered, unaccountable access to the apps, games, videos, or online communities of the internet, especially in the privacy of their bedrooms. To stop that intrusion into our families is a way to resist the evil of the increasing sexualization of children.

From a larger perspective, child exploitation and the normalizing of pedophilia must be understood as one of the consequences of the sexual revolution’s worst ideas. Two years ago, in an interview for the BreakPoint podcast, I discussed this with Helen Alvare, a Professor of Law at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University. As the sexual revolution has barreled onward, she observed, the emphasis in U.S. law has subtly but definitively shifted. Once broadly favoring the rights of children, the law increasingly prioritizes the “rights” and “freedoms” of adults over the rights of children.

Same-sex marriage is the prime example. Once the state proclaimed that an intentionally sterile union is socially identical to a man-woman marriage, a child’s inherent right to their mother and father was erased. As Alvare put it, “The idea used to be that parents only have rights when it comes to children because they first have responsibilities. Now there’s a demand that children are something that must be given to you.”

Because my conversation with Helen Alvare is even more important today than it was two years ago, we’ve re-aired it on the BreakPoint Podcast. You can find it at BreakPoint.org, or subscribe to the BreakPoint Podcast wherever you listen to podcasts.

James O’Keefe Strikes Again! Project Veritas Exposes Democrat Mark Kelly’s True Plans to Crack Down on Your Second Amendment Rights (VIDEO)

By Jim Hoft Published October 4, 2020 at 8:09pm 457 Comments

Last week James O’Keefe III and Project Veritas released the blockbuster videos exposing voter fraud and ballot harvesting by Ilhan Omar connected political operatives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

James O’Keefe III and Project Veritas tonight released video of an Ilhan Omar connected ballot harvester exchanging $200 for a general election ballot. On Sunday night James O’Keefe and Project Veritas teased the release of new undercover videos in their Expose 2020 campaign! Last week James teased an upcoming investigation on the Mark Kelly campaign.

UPDATE– And here it is.

Mark Kelly, like his fellow Democrats, can’t get elected on his real agenda.

So Mark Kelly is lying to Arizona voters. James Exposes Democrat Mark Kelly’s true plans to crack down on your Second Amendment rights.

Mark Kelly is hiding this from Arizona voters until after the election!

In addition, Mark Kelly is hiding more of the left-wing agenda, per 3 astronauts, who endorsed McSally:

The astronauts say that while McSally has a record of accomplishments to point to, Kelly’s positions remain largely unknown. The three are accusing Kelly of hiding his left-wing agenda behind the word “astronaut.”

“But having ‘astronaut’ on your resume does not mean you’d be a good U.S. senator,” the astronauts write. “Mark Kelly is hoping Arizonans are so impressed with his background that they ignore the fact that he’s supported radical gun control activists, that his plan for the eventual government takeover of health care would end Medicare as we know it, and that he’d vote to raise our taxes.”

Twitter Leftists Ban Top US Doctor David Samadi After He Tweets Well Wishes to President Trump and Proposed Early Hydroxychloroquine Treatment Plan for President

Gateway Pundit ^ | 10/04/2020 | Jim Hoft Posted on 10/4/2020, 11:33:18 PM by SeekAndFind

There have now been 126 international studies on HCQ (hydroxychloroquine) and its effectiveness in treating the coronavirus.

76 of these international studies are peer reviewed.

64%, or nearly 2/3’s of the studies found HCQ effective in treating COVID-19 in the early treatment stage of the disease.

After President Trump announced he had been tested positive for the coronavirus Dr. David Samadi, a top 100 US doctor tweeted out encouragement to President Trump and suggested the proven early treatment of HCQ, zinc and Zpack. It is almost like the leftists at Twitter want the president to get sick and die?

What gives the tech giants this continued ‘right’ to silence medical doctors and top doctors who they do not like? Especially after their platform promises the free exchange of ideas?

Dr. Richard Urso tweeted this out following Dr. Samadi’s suspension.

I can’t believe Dr. Samadi was banned for the video wishing POTUS a fast recovery. There’s no info or definitive treatment. @realDonaldTrump ,@DonaldJTrumpJr, @EricTrump @RealCandaceO @charliekirk11, @RealJamesWoods @PressSec @IngrahamAngle @TuckerCarlson @seanhannity pic.twitter.com/3S3yWOfxns

On Saturday Governor Mike Huckabee retweeted Lori Hendry‘s tweet supporting Dr. David Samadi.

Insane by @Twitter @jack I hope Twitter corrects this. @drdavidsamadi is a friend and once treated me & is consistently named as one of best doctors in America. I thought we were supposed to “support the science?” Does some 20 yr old at Twitter know more than @drdavidsamadi ? https://t.co/bvVEMCPvxX

So now the tech giants are acting just like they do in Communist China.

Not only will your tweets be removed if you disappoint them but they will even target your friends and followers for promoting your views!

This is pure communism.

The laws must immediately be changed so these far left tech giants can be sued to hell and back for blocking our right to free speech!

Dr. Samadi deserves a voice in the discussion!

Dr. David Samadi wishes President Trump well and asks that we all come together to fight this virus as a nation. ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ ⁦@EricTrump⁩ ⁦@DonaldJTrumpJr⁩ ⁦@RealCandaceO⁩ ⁦@RealJamesWoods⁩ ⁦@charliekirk11⁩ ⁦@drsimonegold⁩ ⁦ pic.twitter.com/LSeaw149cC

WHO IS DR. DAVID SAMADI?:

David B. Samadi is a board-certified urologist, and the former Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.

Born and raised in the Persian Jewish community of Iran, at age 15 Samadi and his younger brother left in 1979 after the Iranian Revolution. They continued their education in Belgium and the UK before coming to the United States where Samadi completed high school in Roslyn, New York. He attended Stony Brook University and earned his degree in biochemistry. He earned his M.D from S.U.N.Y., Stony Brook School of Medicine, Stony Brook, New York in 1994, and completed his postgraduate training in urology at Montefiore Medical Center and in urology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1996 and Montefiore Medical Center in 2000. He completed an oncology fellowship in urology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in 2001 and a robotic radical prostatectomy fellowship at Henri Mondor Hospital Creteil in France under the mentorship of Professor Claude Abbou in 2002.

Chinese fighter jet taken down by bird

Chinese warplane meets its match in feathered foe

By Keoni Everington, Taiwan News, Staff Writer 2020/10/05 17:17

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — After many weeks of constant intrusions into Taiwan's air defense identification zone (ADIZ) by People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) warplanes, Chinese state-run media announced that one of the nation's fighter jets was taken down by a bird.

According to Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND), PLAAF aircraft violated Taiwan's ADIZ on 10 out of 18 days between Sept. 16 to Oct. 3, in a total of 50 sorties. However, the PLAAF's self-cultivated image of invincibility took a hit in recent days when one of its jets crashed after meeting its match in an avian adversary.

On Oct. 5, the People's Liberation Army Daily reported that pilot Wang Jiandong (王建東) relayed encountering a bird strike shortly after takeoff. The engine's in-flight shutdown warning immediately began flashing, and the display screen went black.

After five seconds, emergency backup power kicked in and the cockpit display screen was restored. Wang then tried to push the throttle forward to increase thrust, but there was no response, as the engine had come to a complete stop.

As he was only 272.7 meters above the ground, Wang realized there was no time to return to the base to land and that his jet would soon crash. According to the Chinese state-run mouthpiece, Wang steered the plane away from populated areas "three times" within 37 seconds and aimed it at a rice paddy before ejecting a mere 75.9 meters above the ground and safely landing in a nearby orchard. After an investigation by the PLA, it was confirmed that the accident was caused by a bird's impact on the engine of the fighter aircraft during takeoff, causing it to stall; however, the report did not mention the time and location of the incident. The report did state that the pilot is a member of the PLA's Southern Theater Command, which is where some of the warplanes that have been harassing Taiwan's ADIZ are based and which would be part of the staging grounds in the event of an invasion of Taiwan.

It is not certain what type of plane was involved in the incident, nor was a location or date given other than "early autumn." The only hint at the type of aircraft that might have been involved was that the stock image used in the article included a Chengdu J-10 taxiing on a runway.

On Sept. 4, video surfaced of a PLAAF Su-35 fighter jet crashing in Guilin, Guangxi Province, which is one of the provinces covered in the Southern Theater Command. False news reports alleged that day that Taiwan had shot down the aircraft, but Taiwan's MND quickly dispelled the rumor, while Beijing never issued an official response.

Record-breaking California wildfires surpass 4 million acres

By JOCELYN GECKER and SUMAN NAISHADHAM

Updated: October 5, 2020 - 12:15 AM

SAN FRANCISCO — (AP) — In a year that has already brought apocalyptic skies and smothering smoke to the West Coast, California set a grim new record Sunday when officials announced that the wildfires of 2020 have now scorched a record 4 million acres — in a fire season that is far from over.

The unprecedented figure — an area larger than the state of Connecticut — is more than double the previous record for the most land burned in a single year in California.

The 4 million mark is unfathomable. It boggles the mind, and it takes your breath away,” said Scott McLean, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, known as Cal Fire. “And that number will grow.”

So far, in this year’s historic fire season, more than 8,200 California wildfires have killed 31 people and scorched “well over 4 million acres in California” or 6,250 square miles, Cal Fire said Sunday in a statement. The blazes have destroyed more than 8,400 buildings.

The astonishing figure is more than double the 2018 record of 1.67 million burned acres (2,609 square miles) in California. All large fire years since Cal Fire started recording figures in 1933 have remained well below the 4 million mark — “until now," the agency said Sunday in a Tweet.

“This year is far from over and fire potential remains high. Please be cautious outdoors."

The enormity of the fires has meant that people living far from the flames experienced a degree of misery that in itself was unprecedented, with historically unhealthy air quality and smoke so dense that it blurred the skies across California and on some days even blotted out the sun. Last month, a relentless heat wave hit the state that helped fuel the fires and caused so much air pollution that it seeped indoors, prompting stores across California to sell out of air purifiers.

Numerous studies have linked bigger wildfires in America to climate change from the burning of coal, oil and gas. Scientists say climate change has made California much drier, meaning trees and other plants are more flammable.

Mike Flannigan, who directs the Canadian Partnership for Wildland Fire Science at Canada’s University of Alberta, says the escalation of fires in California and the U.S. West is “largely, not solely, due to human-caused climate change.”

Despite Sunday's grim milestone, there were signs for optimism.

Powerful winds that had been expected to drive flames in recent days hadn’t materialized, and warnings of extreme fire danger for hot, dry and gusty weather expired Saturday morning as a layer of fog rolled in. Clearer skies in some areas allowed large air tankers to drop retardant after being sidelined by smoky conditions several days earlier.

“In certain areas, we were able to get quite a bit of aircraft in. So we really pounded, a couple different areas hard with aircraft,” Mclean said. “If the weather does what is predicted, we’re on that glide path I hope. But that doesn’t diminish the amount of work that still needs to be done.”

Long-range forecast models hinted at the possibility of rain early in the week.

Fire officials said the Glass Fire burning in wine country for the past week was their top priority. Easing winds over the weekend proved a mixed blessing for firefighters battling the giant blaze, which is currently 17 percent contained.

“We are seeing some relief in the weather, but it’s going to be three of four days before it really makes a difference on the fire,” Cal Fire meteorologist Tom Bird said at a Sunday news briefing about the Glass Fire. “The one good thing going forward, we’re not expecting any wind events to push into the fire.”

The Glass Fire began last Sunday as three fires merged and drove into vineyards and mountain areas, including part of the city of Santa Rosa. More than 30,000 people were still under evacuation orders this Sunday, down from 70,000 earlier in the week. Among those still unable to return home are the entire 5,000-plus population of Calistoga in Napa County.

Across the state about 17,000 firefighters were at work battling nearly two dozen major blazes.

Virtually all the damage has occurred since mid-August, when five of the six largest fires in state history erupted. Lightning strikes caused some of the most devastating blazes. The wildfires have incinerated hundreds of homes and killed 31 people but large parts of them are burning in largely unpopulated land.

Many of the most destructive fires sparked in Northern California, where hills and mountains dotted with many dead trees have provided plenty of fuel for fires igniting amid high temperatures and strong winds fanning the flames. Thick, gray smoke from the blazes has fouled the air in many hill communities and major cities in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

Flannigan, the fire scientist, estimates the area of land burned from wildfires in California has increased fivefold since the 1970s.

“Temperature is really important to fire. Temperature is key. The warmer it is, the longer the fire season,” he said.

“This is an unprecedented year and the thing is there’s no vaccine for wildfires," Flanigan said. “We’re going to have to learn to live with wildfires and the associate smoke."

Ammunition Makers Facing Massive Order Backlog, Shortage May Last Until 2021

Daily Wire – by Emily Zanotti  Posted: October 5, 2020

Ammunition makers are reporting a massive backlog, and in some cases, the shortage is so severe that gun owners may not be able to purchase ammunition off the shelves until next year.

Bearing Arms reports that at least one Arizona ammunition manufacturer, the Scottsdale, Arizona, based Ammo Incorporated, is “facing an $80.1 million backlog amid record demand for ammunition.”

“We’re working right now seven days a week, 24 hours a day in all the manufacturing plants,” the company’s CEO told media.

The demand has forced Ammo International to expand its industrial operation, adding millions of dollars in machinery and expanding their production.

Shooting Illustrated, the National Rifle Association’s own news organization, adds that “the current ammunition shortage may continue at least until 2021.”

Bearing Arms notes that the increase in ammunition sales has eclipsed even the increase in gun sales.

“According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the year has already seen a boom in gun purchases, up 95% in the first half of 2020 compared to the same time period of 2019,” the outlet notes. “But ammo sales skyrocketed even higher, up 139% compared to 2019 during that same time period.”

Ammo Incorporated’s CEO suggests that, initially, gun and ammunition purchases increased because of the coronavirus lockdowns. Fearing that help may not be on the way and that emergency services could be otherwise occupied, Americans armed themselves and stockpiled extra ammunition in case it became unavailable. National unrest, though, has given rise to further security concerns, and the many anti-racism and anti-police protests that have given way to violence and looting have driven gun owners to purchase additional weapons and ammunition.

“The start was the pandemic that was going on. But there was always that fear of the election. Of who’s going to be elected of the next President of the United States,” he told media. “But thirdly, I think the unrest in this country right now. And as you’ve seen in a lot of cities, the looting and the burning, and I think people are just scared.”

The shortage has even driven gun ranges to limit how much ammunition visitors can use, according to Nexstar Media. “We’ll limit them to one box of ammunition vs. the normal 300 to 500 rounds,” one gun range owner told the local media conglomerate.

If President Donald Trump does not win the November election, experts believe the demand for guns and ammunition could only increase, both out of fear of unrest and concern that a Democratic presidential administration will target gun rights.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, are billed as the strongest “gun safety” presidential ticket in history, according to Fox News. The pair’s website notes that they plan on banning the sale of so-called “assault weapons,” limiting the number of handguns an individual can purchase, banning online gun sales, and require background checks for all gun buyers, including buyers who purchase weapons at “gun shows.” The pair also claim that they will require all guns to be fitted with RFID or “smart chips” that tie guns to individual operators (and can likely track use).

BANK FAIL TSB outage locked hundreds of customers out of mobile and banking app

Alice Grahns, Digital Consumer Reporter 5 Oct 2020, 8:53Updated: 5 Oct 2020, 11:12

AN online glitch at TSB this morning left hundreds of frustrated customers unable to log into online banking or the app.

The problems started around 8am today, with users reporting issues on both social media and complaints website DownDetector. Although the issues are now said to be fixed, some Twitter users said they were unable to transfer cash while others couldn't pay their bills.

One user said: "@TSB my banking app isn't working again this morning (had the same issue a couple of weeks ago).

"Could you look into this ASAP please as I have bills to pay today?!"

While another said: "Morning, I'm having problems using my app, need to transfer money but keeps saying need to reset device so going through procedure one time password etc but then says trouble authenticating login?" Hundreds of TSB users complained about problems on the DownDetector websiteCredit: DownDetector

And a third added: "How long is the app going to be down for?

"My 70 year old father relies on the app to save him driving five miles to his nearest branch as you decided to shut down his local branch!!"

Customers can see if there are any issues with TSB's services by checking its dedicated page on its website.

Currently, the bank says it's aware of "intermittent issues" with the mobile banking app.

But a spokesperson told The Sun service has been restored, although there can sometimes be a lag.

It added the service status page will update shortly, while most customers would've been able to use the app without issues.

TSB said on its website: "We apologise for the inconvenience to anyone impacted.

"We recommend customers try turning WIFI and/or mobile data on and off to see if that resolves the issue and try logging in again.

"Alternatively, customers experiencing difficulties can use internet banking, on our website, or telephone banking." The outage comes just days after TSB announced plans to close 164 branches due to a rise in mobile banking.

Back in April, an outage left TSB customers locked out of their accounts for three hours.

Two weeks later, it went down again, at the same time as HSBC and First Direct, affecting thousands of customers.

Nunes: Shut Down Intel Agencies Until They Declassify ‘Smoking Gun’ Evidence Against Hillary Clinton

by Steve Watson  October 5th 2020, 5:40 am

Representative Devin Nunes declared Sunday that US Intelligence agencies should be forced to release so called ‘smoking gun’ documents that are said to contain details of Russian intelligence referring to an authorization given by Hillary Clinton to link President Trump to efforts by the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 election.

In a Fox News interview, Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said “Every Republican senator and member of Congress should be saying… we want every damn bit of evidence that every intelligence agency has or it’s maybe time to shut those agencies down.” A memo released last week via the Senate Judiciary Committee, penned by director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe claims that US intelligence made an investigative referral to the FBI regarding the information in September 2016.

In the memo, Ratcliffe notes that the referral mentioned “approval of a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her [Hillary’s] use of a private mail server.”

“There’s plenty of circumstantial evidence to know this Maria, that the Clinton campaign had created all of this, because they knew that 33,000 emails were out there somewhere,” Nunes said.

“So what did they do? They created a sick fantasy. This was the Clinton campaign. The Clinton campaign created this sick fantasy. Then they went out and hired avatars to do it.” Nunes added, referring to the effort to delegitimise Trump’s campaign.

“So they hired a former British spy named [Christopher] Steele who did the ‘Steele Dossier,’” Nunes continued, adding “Then they hired this suspected Russian spy so they could give it a veneer of being a Russian. So imagine that.” Because the information has remained classified, those who have seen it cannot discuss it.

Nunes urged that what he has seen are “definitely smoking guns” and that the information “definitely needs to be made available to the American public.”

“There’s even more underlying evidence that backs up what Director Ratcliffe put out,” Nunes asserted.

Pope Francis Calls for Giving United Nations Organization ‘Real Teeth’

ROME — Pope Francis makes his best case for multilateralism in a new teaching letter, calling for more authority for supranational organizations like the United Nations.

The twenty-first century is witnessing a weakening of the power of nation states, chiefly because the economic and financial sectors, being transnational, tend to prevail over the political,” the pope writes in the encyclical letter Fratelli Tutti (Brothers All), released on Sunday. “Given this situation, it is essential to devise stronger and more efficiently organized international institutions, with functionaries who are appointed fairly by agreement among national governments, and empowered to impose sanctions,” the pope advises in the 43,000-word text.

When we talk about the possibility of some form of world authority regulated by law, we need not necessarily think of a personal authority,” the pontiff asserts. “Still, such an authority ought at least to promote more effective world organizations, equipped with the power to provide for the global common good, the elimination of hunger and poverty and the sure defence of fundamental human rights.”

Among the possible candidates for such a role, the pope turns his attention to the United Nations Organization, with which he enjoys close ties.

“In this regard, I would also note the need for a reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth,” Francis declares, citing a text from his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.

Needless to say, this calls for clear legal limits to avoid power being co-opted only by a few countries and to prevent cultural impositions or a restriction of the basic freedoms of weaker nations on the basis of ideological differences,” he writes.

The work of the United Nations, the pope insists, “can be seen as the development and promotion of the rule of law, based on the realization that justice is an essential condition for achieving the ideal of universal fraternity.”

“There is need to prevent this Organization from being delegitimized, since its problems and shortcomings are capable of being jointly addressed and resolved,” he adds.

“The seventy-five years since the establishment of the United Nations and the experience of the first twenty years of this millennium have shown that the full application of international norms proves truly effective, and that failure to comply with them is detrimental,” Francis states.

The Charter of the United Nations is “an obligatory reference point of justice and a channel of peace,” he declares, and thus “there can be no room for disguising false intentions or placing the partisan interests of one country or group above the global common good.”

Among the normative instruments for the peaceful resolution of controversies, “preference should be given to multilateral agreements between states, because, more than bilateral agreements, they guarantee the promotion of a truly universal common good and the protection of weaker states,” he declares. At the same time, Pope Francis notes certain “shortcomings” of the international community, including “its lack of coordination in complex situations, its lack of attention to fundamental human rights and to the critical needs of certain groups.”

SEE IT: Armed militia leads protest march after Louisiana police kill Black man

David Matthews 4 days ago

An armed militia led a protest march in Lafayette, La., Saturday after police shot and killed a Black man.

The group, dubbed the Not F------ Around Coalition (NFAC), has made appearances at several protests in recent months, including after the death of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.

Saturday’s demonstration was held in honor of 31-year-old Trayford Pellerin who was shot by Lafayette police on Aug. 21 after police responded to a call concerning a disturbed individual with a knife at a gas station. The march also occurred after Congressman Clay Higgins reportedly threatened members of the group in a Facebook post.

“Me? I wouldn’t even spill my beer,” Higgins, a former sheriff’s deputy, wrote on Facebook under a photo of the group. “I’d drop any 10 of you where you stand. We don’t care what color you are. We don’t care if you’re left or right.” John Fitzgerald Johnson, also known as Grandmaster Jay, leads NFAC members on a march to Parc San Souci in downtown Lafayette, La., Saturday, Oct. 3. NFAC, a Black militia group based in Atlanta, marched in Lafayette in response to threats made by U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins on Facebook regarding protests in Lafayette following the death of Trayford Pellerin, a 31-year-old Black man who was fatally shot by Lafayette police responding to a reported disturbance involving a man with a knife at a north Lafayette gas station on Aug. 21. (Scott Clause/)

Higgins later denied he had apologized to John Fitzgerald Johnson, the leader of NFAC who also goes by “Grandmaster Jay.”

The group, clad in black and carrying different types of guns pointed at the ground, obtained a permit from the city prior to the march. The group stopped several times to kneel during the march.

“Your job wouldn’t be that hard if you treated us like U.S. citizens and not enemy combatants. Your jobs wouldn’t be that hard if you let us police ourselves,” Johnson said while addressing law enforcement officers. NFAC members march in Parc San Souci in downtown Lafayette, La., Saturday, Oct. 3. (Scott Clause/)

The NFAC’s goal is to help the Black community stay safe and teach more Black Americans about their rights and responsible gun ownership.

One man, who is reportedly not a member of NFAC, was arrested during the protest after “accidentally” firing his gun, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office said.

McCabe Delays Senate Committee Testimony, Citing COVID-19 Concern

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe won’t be appearing before a Senate committee this week after two members of the panel tested positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, his lawyer said on Oct. 3.

McCabe was scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Oct. 6 to testify about the FBI’s handling of the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, which later morphed into an investigation of President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Grocery Stores Are Prepping for a Second Wave and Holiday Food Shortages

October 7, 2020 by Robert Wheeler, The Organic Prepper:

Just a few days ago, I wrote an article (The Supply Chain Is Broken and Food Shortages Are HERE) detailing the disruptions to the US supply chain and explained how food shortages are coming to the United States. In fact, I pointed out how they are already here, but many Americans simply don’t know it yet.

After all, mainstream media hasn’t been telling them about the disruptions to the supply chain as a result of COVID lockdowns and questionable strikes nor is it telling them about how many crops have been destroyed as a result of wildfires in the West of the country, straight-line winds in the middle, or flooding and hurricanes in the south.

The mainstream media says the supply chain is just fine.

The mainstream media has been largely silent and has focused more on telling its readers and viewers that the supply chain is just fine.

That is, until recently.

An article from CNN: “Worried about more shortages, grocery stores are stockpiling goods,” starts out: Grocery stores across the United States are stocking up on products to avoid shortages during a second wave of coronavirus.

The article goes on to say that most household items, like paper towels, Clorox wipes continue to be difficult to keep in stock. This is due to people stockpiling the items due to the COVID pandemic. People are cleaning and sanitizing their homes much more often, hoping to keep the virus away. Stores nationwide are stocking up in preparation for not only a second wave of COVID but also for the coming holidays.

The CNN article states:

That’s why Southeastern Grocers bought its Thanksgiving turkeys and holiday hams over the summer, months before inventory planning normally begins, the company’s CEO Anthony Hucker told the Wall Street Journal. Associated Food Stores started stockpiling cleaning and sanitizing products so it always has inventory in its warehouse, and with cold season around the corner, grocery wholesaler United Natural Foods has already loaded up on herbal tea and cold remedies, the company told the Journal.

Early on in the pandemic, grocery stores were focusing on stockpiling weeks of supplies for shoppers, but now food sellers are focusing on the long-term, aiming to stockpile supplies for months instead.

Grocers have been stocking “Pandemic Pallets” to prepare for the second wave

What is a pandemic pallet?

Grocery stores are stocking pallets with items they fear may run low in the coming months. Keeping these pallets stored in the warehouses, most of them are stocked with cleaning items and paper products, cold medicines, dry goods, and food staples like rice, pasta, and legumes – all the things that they ran out of quickly the last time around. And, with the holidays right around the corner, many stores are stockpiling holiday foods like cranberry sauce.

An article published on Business Insider reported:

“Pandemic Pallets” are gaining more traction, with grocers preparing for worst and stocking the wooden storage structures with items that could be in high demand around Thanksgiving, and even Christmas, according to the Wall Street Journal. The goods being stockpiled on the pallets range from cleaning supplies to dry goods, the report said.

While the pallets vary in nature, their overall purpose remains the same: ensuring grocery stores will be able to handle demand if shoppers begin to “panic buy” as they did in March if COVID-19 cases spike in the winter. In the past week, coronavirus cases have risen in 21 states, as reported by CNN. In countries abroad, a second wave of infections has led to the return of lockdown orders.

The article went on to say that grocery stores are not as sparse as they were in the beginning of the pandemic. Nevertheless, shortages are still expected. The author also wrote:

In some cases, stores have turned to other suppliers to meet demand, which is why some of the toilet paper found on shelves today is from Mexico. Meat suppliers have been hit especially hard by the pandemic due to outbreaks at packaging plants, as previously reported by Business Insider.

Meat shortages were also the focus of this article that describes the effect the pandemic has had on meat supplies.

Here is an excerpt from that article:

Workers at meat packaging plants have been especially hard hit with the coronavirus. Almost 60% of the employees at one Tyson plant in Iowa have tested positive for COVID. Plants everywhere are shutting down for the safety of their employees and despite President Trump’s invocation of the Defense Production Act to force them to reopen, many workers have refused to return to the plants. Factory farms have culled millions of cows, hogs, and chickens because they cannot be to plants that are either closed or reducing the amount of meat they’re able to process while practicing social distancing.

Historically, the centralization of food has always ended in disaster. Unfortunately, giant CAFO operations and USDA approval have centralized our own food supply, and here we are.

Why would there be a food shortage during the holidays?

Why would stores face a shortage of when they haven’t had a shortage in years past? And why would they expect it? Why would that happen on the most socially distanced holiday season in American history?

Many people are staying at home and that means more cooking at home. More cooking at home means more demand for food products from the grocery stores. Regardless of social distancing, people still have to eat.

Mura Dominko of Eat This wrote the article, “Grocery Stores Are Preparing For Shortages Of These Holiday Foods.” She writes,

If there’s one thing that could increase the already existing risk of grocery shortages this fall, it’s the holiday rush. And grocery stores are fully aware that they may face potential challenges trying to keep most sought-after items in stock once November rolls around and we start approaching Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Holiday buying and “second wave” hysteria will no doubt play a major role in causing shortages over the next few months. They are a merchant’s perfect storm of profit. Many merchants are banking on second wave panic buying and holiday panic buying.

So why will there be shortages? Why would suppliers and merchants not stock up and be fully prepared for the coming storm?

The. Food. Supply. Chain. Is. Broken

As I wrote in my last article, the food supply chain is broken. I asked the readers if they have experienced shortages in their areas. Take a look at the comments. People are seeing shortages all over. And they are seeing those shortages now, not three months from now.

China wants 'to kill millions of Americans,' analyst warns

Beijing risking 'incident' that would 'justify taking lives'

WND Staff By WND Staff  Published October 4, 2020 at 4:48pm

China has been sending fighter aircraft and bombers into Taiwan's airspace this month while the ruling Communist Party is issuing threats.

"The U.S. and Taiwan must not misjudge the situation, or believe the exercise is a bluff. Should they continue to make provocations, a war will inevitably break out," the Communist Party's Global Times newspaper said in a Sept. 18 editorial. "They are rehearsals on taking over Taiwan."

Gordon Chang, author of "The Coming Collapse of China" and a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute wrote on Tuesday that Hu Xijin, the editor of the Global Times, also has "ominously" written that China is "morally justified" to war against Taiwan.

Chang cited China military analyst Richard Fisher writing in the Taipei Times that Hu "is not just urging China to commence a war to murder millions of Taiwanese, he wants China to be able to kill millions of Americans as well."

Fisher, a senior fellow of the Virginia-based International Assessment and Strategy Center, told Gatestone that Beijing "may not just yet have the overall ability to invade Taiwan," but it is running military exercises to "terrorize" Taiwan and "frighten" America. Beijing calls the island of Taiwan "sacred" Chinese territory, but Taiwan has never been part of communist China.

Chang noted China ordered flights near Taiwan while U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar visited Taiwan's capital, Taipei, recently, and the "incursions" have only gotten worse.

He said that on one recent day, when Beijing sent 18 airplanes, "a Chinese fighter pilot got on the radio to deny that there was a median line, which for years both sides had respected to avoid accidental contact. The pilot, breaking practice, also made a political statement, calling Taiwan a 'pawn' of 'foreign forces.'"

Chang said Chinese leaders now are "risking an incident" that could "justify taking lives."

In May, he pointed out, the People's Liberation Army, in a surprise attack, seized Indian territory in Ladakh in the Himalayas. "Since late August, India has recovered lost ground and, in the process, humiliated the Chinese, who have proved incapable of counterattacking," Chang wrote. "The prospect of further advances against fierce Indian troops is not high. Especially after India, Xi Jinping looks exposed politically. Since becoming the Communist Party's general secretary in late 2012, he has accumulated almost unprecedented power, so he now has complete accountability. There is, inconveniently for him, no one else to blame for debacles. Furthermore, he has changed China's political system by raising the costs of failure.

"Xi, therefore, knows that should he fail, he could lose everything — power, freedom, assets, life."

Hawaii Food Bank Sees "Stunning" Increase In Meals Served

by Tyler Durden Sun, 10/04/2020 - 11:09

Hawaii is facing an economic cliff as federal stimulus money for small businesses and unemployed workers have dried up (read: here). This past summer, there was some optimism in restarting Hawaii's tourism industry, but the resurgence in COVID-19 cases in July and August changed all that.

High unemployment and a collapsed tourism industry continue to plague the island. Carl Bonham, executive director of the University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization, told Honolulu Civil Beat that the island's economic situation "is, to some extent, worse than we anticipated."

The virus-induced recession on the island has been so severe that Hawaii Food Basket, one of the island's top food banks, "has significantly increased its services since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, serving up to 80,000 people monthly," according to The Hawaii Tribune-Herald. This time last year (Septmember 2019), the food bank provided assistance to around 14,000 individuals a month, representing a 5.7x increase over the year.

Food Basket executive director Kristin Frost Albrecht said the food bank helps residents by providing care packages to a network of partner agencies and programs.

Albrecht said at one food bank site on the Big Island, the facility serves 2,000-3,700 people, where 85% of them are unemployed.

"The one thing I will say about The Food Basket — we are experienced with crisis," she said. "In the last couple of years, we've had hurricanes and lava, but there's been nothing like this. (Those disasters have) helped ease us into this new normal of what we're doing, but it's a stunning number. There are no two ways about it."

And the "new normal" Albrecht speaks of consists of a country where the working-poor is entirely reliant on local food banks.

As we've outlined in recent weeks, food bank demand, on a national level, is rising once more:

India Test-Fires Nuclear-Capable Hypersonic Missile As Border Tensions Rise

by Tyler Durden Sun, 10/04/2020 - 08:45

For decades, India has feared a multi-front war with China and Pakistan. By modernizing its military, along with investments in nuclear weapons and hypersonic missiles, New Delhi could be on a pathway to deter or manage conflict with either one of its nuclear-armed neighbors.

In what appears to be the second hypersonic missile test in weeks, India successfully test-fired its indigenously developed nuclear-capable hypersonic missile dubbed "Shaurya," defense sources told Hindustan Times.

"The surface-to-surface tactical missile was blasted off from a canister strapped to the ground launcher from launch complex 4 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in the APJ Abdul Kalam Island around 12.10 pm and covered the desired range," the source said. The state-of-the-art missile, with speeds of March 7.5 (5,754 mph), was able to conduct a "maneuver" at the "closing stages of its flight before striking a predefined target in the Bay of Bengal.

A Defence Research and Development Organisation official said Shaurya is one of the top ten missiles in the world "with high-performance navigation and guidance systems, efficient propulsion systems, sophisticated control technologies and canisterised launch."

The missile can be launched from canisters mounted on a truck or from missile silos buried deep underground. The source said the missile could easily be transported by truck, allowing the mobile platform to continually be moved and making it harder for China or Pakistan to detect them with satellite imaging. The New Indian Express said, "the missile is capable of deceiving enemy radar aims to give India more options to hit back, in case it is attacked with nuclear weapons." Just weeks ago, India "successfully" test-fired a Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle that was capable of hitting speeds over Mach 6 (4,600 mph). The early September launch came as India and China have been locked in a military standoff along the Line of Actual Control, a 2,175 mile disputed border between both countries, that stretches from the Ladakh region in the north to the Indian state of Sikkim. In terms of geopolitical instabilities, the world is focused on the developments surrounding the Armenian-Azerbaijan war, but a close eye should also be kept on the Sino-Indian border.

42,000-foot plumes of ash, 143-mph firenadoes 1,500-degree heat – The California Fires are a new HELL on Earth

By Strange Sounds - Oct 3, 2020

42,000-foot plumes of ash. 143-mph firenadoes. 1,500-degree heat. These wildfires are a new kind of hell on earth, and scientists are racing to learn its rules.

On the windy, hot day of July 26, 2018, as record 113-­degree temperatures baked Redding, California, in the northern Sacramento Valley, Eric Knapp toiled in an air-conditioned government office. After work, he planned to meet his wife and 3-year-old daughter, and some family friends, for dinner. Slender and fair-skinned with a gentle smile, Knapp is a research ecologist for the US Forest Service. He was well aware that, three days earlier, in coastal mountains west of town, a wildfire had started when a trailer got a flat tire and the metal wheel rim scraped the asphalt, sending sparks into dry brush. Like the vast majority of wildfires, this one, called the Carr Fire, burned initially as a wide but shallow band of flames advancing slowly, like a battalion of infantrymen marching shoulder to shoulder, and left behind charred grass and lightly scorched trees. The Carr Fire was also typical in that it moved according to the dictates of wind, ground slope, and flammable fuels—southeast around a lake, then up a hill, in part because heat rises. Early on that particular morning, the fire had crested a rise above Redding and, with a northwesterly breeze at its back, crawled downhill toward town. Knapp was finishing up for the day when his friend Talitha Derksen, a wildlife biologist with a daughter close in age to Knapp’s own, sent a text saying that her neighborhood might have to be evacuated. One of the agencies tasked with that judgment call, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection — aka CalFire — is one of the world’s largest and most effective wildland firefighting organizations. CalFire bases evacuation recommendations on predictions of where, and how quickly, a flame front will move next. That day, the fire appeared likely to reach the floor of the Sacramento Valley at a subdivision called Land Park, about a mile northwest of Derksen’s house. Knapp and the others changed plans: They’d meet at Derksen’s, order pizza, and help her get ready to leave in case it came to that. Knapp stopped at his house to grab fireproof Nomex clothing. As he headed to Derksen’s, he considered dropping by the office again to pick up his hard hat and emergency fire shelter—a sort of fire-resistant pup tent—but decided he was unlikely to need them.

As he turned onto Derksen’s street, the flame front was a couple of miles away and hidden by trees, but Knapp could see the smoke rising in a straight and tall plume that turned the sun orange. When he arrived at Derksen’s house, she was already packing bags. Knapp, to be sure he knew what they were dealing with, jogged out the nearby Sacramento River Trail for a view. Upriver, on the far bank, he could see red flames torching gray pines and scrubby oaks.

Knapp was shooting photos when he noticed something odd: The wind where he stood blew out of the south, into the fire, but the flame front still moved the other way, driven by that northwesterly at its back. Then he saw something else: Portions of the smoke plume swirled in different directions, as if beginning to rotate.

Knapp knew this could signal a once rare and dangerous phenomenon known as plume-driven fire, in which a fire’s own convective column of rising heat becomes hot enough and big enough to redirect wind and weather in ways that can make the fire burn much hotter and, with little warning, spread fast enough to trap people as they flee. As Knapp ran back down the trail, he passed neighbors walking and recommended they turn around. But even he had no idea how much peril they were all in. At the house, as Derksen left, Knapp and others hosed down the roof and rain gutters and cleared the yard of flammable material like cardboard boxes and lawn furniture. Knapp was the last person there, spraying water on the fence and yard.

Even as Knapp cranked the spigot, the swirling smoke he’d seen was fast accelerating, transforming much of the Carr Fire’s enormous lower plume into the biggest fire tornado ever observed, a whirling vortex of flame 17,000 feet tall and rotating at 143 mph with the destructive force of an EF-3 tornado, the kind that erases entire towns in Oklahoma. While Knapp blithely sprayed water around Derksen’s house, that fire tornado — hidden from him by all the smoke in the air — leaped across the Sacramento River, touched down in Land Park, snapped high-tension power lines, uprooted trees, wrapped steel pipes around utility poles, and obliterated hundreds of homes, igniting and shredding them and hurling their burning debris up to altitudes at which commercial passenger jets fly.

Not far from where Knapp stood, CalFire captain Shawn Raley was evacuating a woman and her daughter in his truck when all the windows imploded, showering them with shattered glass.

Close by, a 37-year-old fire inspector named J. J. Stoke radioed Mayday moments before the tornado lifted his 5,000-pound Ford F-150 off the asphalt and flipped it repeatedly down Buena­ventura Boulevard, killing him. Three other CalFire workers were driving bulldozers on that same boulevard when their windows also shattered. One of the 25-ton vehicles got spun around and dropped on top of a truck driven by a retired police officer, who then jumped out and crouched behind the bulldozer’s blade while his truck caught fire.

That’s about when flaming debris that had been sucked into the Carr Fire’s plume of smoke drifted out of the updraft column into what fire meteorologists call the fallout zone, which is exactly what it sounds like. Knapp couldn’t possibly have seen that happening; it was tens of thousands of feet above him. Nor could he see the flaming remnants of homes and trees hurtling downward like firebombs, smashing onto roofs and igniting dozens of houses. While looking up into the black whirling darkness overhead, Knapp, who still thought the Carr Fire was advancing with the slow predictability of a classic shallow flame front, watched embers rain down on the bark chips upon which he stood, lighting them afire. At the same moment, with the very ground at his feet aflame, Knapp felt an even more powerful pulse of heat.

California’s 2018 fire season became the most destructive on record — a title it maintained slightly less than 20 months, when it was overtaken not by the 2020 fire season but by a mere four weeks in late summer 2020.

That fire tornado, and the blaze that raged for weeks after, ultimately destroyed more than a thousand homes and buildings, killed eight people, and scorched nearly a quarter-million acres. Yet it was neither the biggest California fire of 2018, nor the most destructive, nor even the only one to behave in frighteningly anomalous ways. The Mendocino Complex fire, about 100 miles south of the Carr, which started the day after Knapp lingered unwittingly below a tornado, was also briefly plume-driven and ultimately burned almost 460,000 acres in what was then the largest California wildfire of all time.

In early November, the Woolsey Fire near Malibu destroyed 1,643 structures while ripping trees and power-line posts out of the ground with a force suggestive of yet another fire tornado.

The infamous Camp Fire, likewise in November, burned 70,000 acres in 24 hours—about a football field a second, for a while—and created an urban firestorm that destroyed more than 18,000 structures and killed 85 people, mostly in the town of Paradise, generating billions of dollars in insurance claims and bankrupting the state’s largest utility, PG&E.

By the time California’s 2018 fire season was over, it had burned more than 1.6 million acres to become the most destructive on record — a title it maintained for slightly less than 20 months, when it was overtaken not by the 2020 fire season but by a mere four weeks in late summer 2020, during which an estimated 3 million acres burned.

But that’s not the truly worrisome part. In making sense of Western wildfires, total acres burned are far less important than the increasingly capricious violence of our most extreme blazes. It is as if we’ve crossed some threshold of climate and fire fuel into an era of uncontrollable conflagrations.

Not only is the size and severity increasing, but the nature of fire is changing,” says David Saah, director of Pyregence, a group of fire-science labs and researchers collaborating on the problem.

Still more concerning, given the trend toward fires dramatically more catastrophic than anything we’ve yet seen: The physics of large-scale wildfires remain so poorly understood that fire-modeling software is often effectively powerless to predict where they will next occur, much less how they will unfold once they do. If there is any good news, it is that, as Saah puts it, “the science for a lot of this stuff is under way.” 2019

ABOUT A YEAR after the Carr Fire, on a bright June day in 2019, Brandon Collins, a big-jawed fire-­science researcher at the University of California, drove a white pickup down a cedar-scented mountain road into the Blodgett Experimental Forest, a 4,000-acre university property near Lake Tahoe where he studies the effect of forest management practices on wildfire risk. All of those practices begin with the inescapable fact that California is flammable.

It is hard for us moderns to accept—conditioned, as we are, by Smokey Bear—but fire is every bit as natural and inevitable in the American West as flooding in the Mississippi River Basin and hurricanes in Florida. Fire is not only guaranteed by climate and ecology; it is vital to the health of many ecosystems. The 20th century, in fact, during which large wildfires were far less common in the the health of many ecosystems. The 20th century, in fact, during which large wildfires were far less common in the West than they are today, should properly be seen as the unnatural outlier. Prior to that, and especially before Anglo-American conquest, wildfire burned an estimated 6 million to 13 million acres each year in California, according to one study, far more than even the current record-­setting season.

Most of those frequent fires past were different, though, in a critical way: Burning with a shallow flame front, like the early stages of the Carr Fire, they ripped through grass, pine duff, and fallen branches—so-called surface fuels—on the forest floor instead of torching whole trees and leaping crown-to-crown as our biggest fires do today.

Those regular surface fires generally kept overall fuel loads so low that each subsequent fire could only do the same—scorch out the understory without harming mature trees. Over time, this sustained forests of old-growth conifers, oak, and madrone widely spaced on carpets of grass and shrubs, which in turn made terrific forage for deer.

Indigenous people lit wildfires all over the American West for millennia to manage land for this outcome—with such success that, in the late 19th century, Anglo-American ranchers and even lumbermen adopted the practice.

Collins, to show me what that looked like, stopped the truck at a section of the Blodgett Forest that had been managed for 16 years in the old way, with regular fire. We have all experienced varied responses to landscape, from apprehension at a bleak desert or dark cave to calm in a tropical cove.

I can report that a forest, when allowed to burn the way it evolved to burn, feels wonderful, a sun-dappled gallery of enormous sugar pine, Douglas fir, and black oak shading meadow-like ground at once sheltered from weather but open enough to move freely.

The Forest Service, which currently controls about 20 million acres of California, put a well-meaning end to this kind of land management almost from the founding of the agency in 1905. Seeing forest in near-term dollar signs—lumber, watershed, game—and dismissing the idea that wildfire played any positive ecological role, the Forest Service learned to snuff every blaze in every forest as quickly as possible. The wrongheadedness of this approach became obvious to the agency itself by the 1940s, when its researchers began to catch on to the fact that the longer a forest goes without fire, the more fuel will pile up and the worse the blaze will be.

That insight made it into official Forest Service policy by the 1970s, encouraging regional employees to use deliberate controlled burns as a means of keeping fuel loads low. By that point, unfortunately, lumber and paper companies had come around to the burning-­is-bad position, as had civilians who disliked smoky air, enjoyed recreation in national forests, and thought of fire in purely destructive terms.

Combined with issues of legal liability—who pays for damage to private property caused by prescribed burns on public land?—it all made Forest Service officials understandably reluctant to follow through with any particular prescribed burn. Private property owners, who control California’s other 13 million acres of forest, were (and still are) even less motivated to light their own land ablaze, much less to tolerate a neighbor doing so. CalFire, meanwhile, tasked with responding to every fire on 31 million acres of nonfederal land inside state borders, has, compared to the Forest Service, almost no fuel-management authority.

CalFire’s straight­forward mandate, for which it spends upward of $2 billion a year and operates more than 700 fire engines and 75 aircraft, is to extinguish every blaze, fast—a job it does extraordinarily well on about 6,400 wildland fires annually.

CalFire chief Brian Estes, who commands firefighting operations for just three of California’s 58 counties, says, “We’re running 400 to 500 fires a year. In the heat of summer, five or six a day—and most you’ll never see. Anytime I have a 911 dispatch to a vegetation fire”—a grass fire, say, on somebody’s lawn—“you’re going to get seven engines, a battalion chief, two bulldozers, two air tankers, an air attack, and two hand crews. They’re going to roll out the barn. But if you do that for a hundred years, and you don’t allow people to do prescribed fire, the fuel just gets more and more dense.”

Collins showed me a graphic example at our next stop, a patch of forest that hadn’t been logged or burned in more than 100 years. Crowded tight with young trees among the big, old ones, it was piled deep not only with surface fuels like pine duff and leaves but so-called ladder fuels, the big fallen branches and shrubs that help surface fire leap up into the crowns and spread more quickly up high. That patch of forest also felt intuitively awful: dark, shadowy, mazelike, and cavernous, the nightmare forest of an old fairy tale.

Flammable as it looked, even forests mismanaged like that patch burned until recently in the historical way, at low severity along the forest floor. As a result, the entire field of wildfire science—including every modeling tool with which firefighters make life-or-death decisions and society structures itself in fire-prone areas—is based on that kind of fire behavior.

The core mathematics of this science date to the early 1970s, when a Forest Service researcher named Richard Rothermel used small laboratory fires to produce equations expressing the relationship between wind speed, ground slope, and how fast a fire spreads. Rothermel knew his approach worked properly only for wildfire in light surface fuel like that in his lab—and failed to capture what happened when blazes got into treetops and jumped crown-to-crown.

But these so-called Rothermel spread equations were applicable to so many wildfires that the Forest Service quickly developed paper-and-pencil ways for firefighters to plug in numbers for wind and slope angle and make reasonable guesses about how fast and in which direction a fire might spread—in a single heading, on a straight line. Eventually that modeling framework was run on cumbersome supercomputers, then on handheld calculators. In the early 1990s, PC-based software finally allowed firefighters to predict fire spread in two dimensions on a map.

That software, created by a Forest Service scientist named Mark Finney, was severely limited by a lack of mapping and fire-fuel data. It didn’t do much good, in other words, if you couldn’t load it with topographical maps and vegetation data for the fire you needed to fight. Over time, though, other researchers compiled these data sets on their own and shared them with one another until, in 2009, they were available for the entire US. Finney’s software now does such a good job predicting fire spread in light ground fuels that it has become the industry standard, used thousands of times each year by firefighters nationwide. And versions that allow simulation of possible future fires are also used by land managers eager to prevent them.

As early as 1994, though, Finney could see that the contemporary modeling framework had more serious limitations. In central Washington state that year, a large and unusual blaze called the Tyee Creek Fire behaved in ways utterly outside the bounds of Finney’s model. Instead of burning with a shallow flame front that followed wind and terrain, Finney says, “the fire basically spread in three directions, all about the same rate, every day in the afternoon”—as if the wind had somehow blown 360 degrees outward from the center of the fire.

The Tyee Creek Fire also kept its huge central area ablaze for days on end, a somewhat speculative phenomenon known as mass fire. “It would just kind of bulge out and put up a giant plume, and then just expand, expand, expand, every day,” Finney says. “I remember thinking, ‘Wow, this is so much beyond anything that we are able to model now, it’d be silly to even try.’”

Finney realized that no amount of modification to the Rothermel spread equations could ever make them account for a fire like Tyee Creek. Not only had they been developed around small lab fires, but 20 years’ experience using them had focused on shallow flame fronts moving quickly through light fuel, with no accounting for slow-burning heavy fuels ignited along the way, much less feedback between ground fire and the immediate atmosphere. Put another way, as Finney recalls saying to a colleague at the time, “the truth is, we have no idea how this stuff really works.”

To chip away at the problem, starting in the early 2000s, Finney went back to first principles, assuming nothing. He lit new experimental fires at a research station in Missoula, Montana, and revisited basic questions like whether wildfire spreads through simple heat radiation—conventional wisdom at the time—or through direct contact with flames. “It’s a very hard problem,” Finney says, “because if you’ve ever sat around a campfire and watched it, the thing that keeps you transfixed is that the flames are always dancing around. How do you characterize such a nonsteady phenomenon in order to model it?”

Light ground fuels, Finney learned, caught fire strictly through convection, and typically consumed themselves in 30 seconds or less at about 1,500 degrees. Heavy fuel like logs and fallen trees would smolder or glow with embers for hours or days, releasing heat all that time. They tended to burst into flaming combustion, quickly releasing their stored energy, under sustained wind. Like when you blow on a campfire.

While conducting that basic research, Finney happened across a book titled Fire and the Air War, about Allied bombing campaigns during World War II. He learned that British and American commanders, while pressing the war against the Germans and Japanese, had discovered that it was easier to burn cities down than to blow them up.

The trick lay in first knocking the buildings over, then lighting them on fire. The Royal Air Force did just that to the German city of Dresden in 1945. Military intelligence officers studied recon photographs to identify older districts built largely of wood, then saturation-bombed them with high explosives.

A second wave of aircraft hit those same districts with more than 2 million pounds of magnesium-­thermite incendiary bombs. This had the desired effect of lighting the city afire, but it also triggered something unexpected. Shortly after all those buildings got to burning—30 minutes after, as it happened—a single giant plume of heat and smoke rose over Dresden, and took on a shape similar to a giant thunderstorm.

The Dresden firestorm famously produced hurricane-­force winds powerful enough to uproot giant trees and snap them in half, suck up roof gables and furniture, and send countless humans flying like fallen leaves into the whirling fire tornado. Before it was done, that firestorm wholly incinerated several square miles of city.

Finney also unearthed a stack of obscure research reports, published during the Cold War, that analyzed the Dresden firestorm and a similar one above Hiroshima after the detonation of the atomic bomb (yet again, roughly 30 minutes after).

One of these reports, commissioned by the Defense Nuclear Agency, compared bombing-induced firestorms with those generated by natural disasters, like during a 1923 Tokyo earthquake when a flaming cyclone lifted floating boats up off a river—and the river water itself nearly 50 feet into the air—before hitting a military depot in which 40,000 people had taken refuge, killing nearly all of them.

Yet another of these reports, titled Mass Fire and Fire Behavior and published by the Forest Service in 1964, looked at what might happen if a national forest got hit by a nuclear weapon. Detonation of a multi­megaton warhead, the authors calculated, could simultaneously ignite as much as 1,200 square miles and cause a firestorm that ultimately burned out 10,000 square miles. The researchers involved were well aware that naturally occurring wildfires could, at least theoretically, cause the same level of damage.

This was particularly frightening in light of the population boom in fire-prone wildlands out West. To better understand the risk, the Forest Service conducted a series of gigantic live tests in which, on federal land in Northern California, they laid out street grids similar to those in both urban and suburban neighborhoods. Each home site in these neighborhoods was piled with wildland fuel—juniper and pinyon trees, in one case—and set ablaze. This not only produced small tornadoes; it also confirmed that mass fires of wildland fuel burn in ways remarkably similar to the firestorms of World War II.

As he read all this stuff, Finney told me, something clicked. “I realized, ‘Oh, my gosh, we’re creating the conditions for mass fires,’” he says. “These fires aren’t just big because of, say, climate change or some accident. They’re big because we have a landscape full of long-burning heavy fuels, just like cities.”

The key ingredient

The key ingredient in a firestorm, whether in a wartime bombing campaign, a plume-driven fire like the Carr, or a wind-driven fire like the one that destroyed Paradise, appears to be the simultaneous burning of many small fires in a combination of light and heavy fuels over a large area with light ambient wind.

As that broad area continues to burn with glowing and smoldering embers over many hours, the separate convective columns of all those many little fires begin to join into a single, giant plume. As the hot air in that plume rises, something has to replace the air at its base—more air, that is, sucked in from all directions.

This can create a 360-degree field of wind howling directly into the blaze with the same effect as vents on a forge, oxygenating the fire and pushing temperatures high enough to flip even heavy fuels (giant construction timbers, mature trees) into full-blown flaming combustion. Those heavy fuels then pump still more heat into the convective column, creating a feedback loop: The column rises ever faster and sucks in more wind, as if the fire has found a way to stoke itself.

The project not only produced small tornadoes; it confirmed that mass fires of wildland fuel burn in ways remarkably similar to the firestorms of World War II.

That seems to be what happened during the Carr Fire. According to Neil Lareau, an atmospheric physicist at the University of Nevada, a weather balloon released on the morning of July 26 detected a lid of warm air, known as an inversion layer, several thousand feet above the Sacramento Valley.

While Knapp settled into work at his office, this inversion layer trapped the Carr Fire’s heat plume near the ground But as the day wore on, the heat plume forced its way to higher altitudes, steadily cooling.

About the time Knapp jogged out to the river to get a view of the fire, this plume reached 18,000 feet, high enough for water vapor, carried aloft, to condense into liquid cloud droplets, spawning a pyrocumulonimbus, or fire-generated rotating thundercloud.

That process of condensing hot vapor or steam into liquid releases heat; you can think of it as the inverse of the cooling effect caused by evaporation, like we’ve all felt emerging from a swimming pool into wind. In the case of the fire plume, this condensation of water vapor into liquid cloud droplets delivers new heat to the plume itself, causing it to rise even faster and higher Back down at ground level, meanwhile, the rising plume pulled in new air by sucking at those two pre­existing wind fields, the ones that Knapp noticed blowing into the fire, out of the south and northwest, respectively. Blowing toward one another at an askew angle and intersecting at the flame front, those two winds wrapped around each other and drew in flame to create a whirling vortex of fire. The higher the plume rose, the faster the vortex spun. Lareau likened it to a figure skater: “The skater starts a slow rotation with their arms out wide, and they draw their arms inward and maybe put them up over their head, and they suddenly start rotating very, very quickly.”

As the fire tornado splintered homes and launched flaming debris into the sky over Knapp, it set up one of the most dangerous of plume-driven phenomena—the raining of firebrands. A classic surface-driven wildfire ignites only the immediate area crossed by the fire’s own shallow flame front; falling firebrands, by contrast, allow plume-driven fires to propagate miles from the core burn, as if launching incendiary bombs to ignite entirely new mass fires like the one that burst up around Knapp.

“If you roll a map of California out, I can give you 150 communities that have exactly the same combination of factors as Paradise.”

Fires of this type can be nearly impossible to suppress, because they can move too quickly for firefighters to get out of harm’s way and burn too hot to extinguish, but also because so many people in the West have settled in places where these fires are increasingly occurring—the wildland urban interface, or WUI (pronounced woo-ee), exurban sprawl in California’s many mountain ranges.

We have crammed millions and millions of people and roads and homes and yards into this highly volatile Mediterranean climate,” says CalFire chief Estes, who grew up in the town of Paradise. Worse, Estes says, enormous numbers of these people have gravitated to quaint old Gold Rush towns that, like Paradise, happen to sit atop river and creek drainages where wildfire fuel accumulates and winds tend to blow especially hard.

In every one of those communities, according to Estes, “when we have disastrous fires, we have to get those people out, and that makes it so much more complex, I can’t even tell you.” or at least the first 16 hours of the Camp Fire in his hometown, Estes adds, firefighters were mostly just pulling residents out of homes and using bulldozers to clear roads blocked with cars abandoned by drivers who’d gotten trapped in traffic and fled on foot. During that whole period, Estes says, “there was not a single fire engine fighting that fire. They were all trying to rescue people.”

Earth change is helping too

THE FINAL ELEPHANT in the room, of course, is Earth change — and the likelihood that it is already pushing even our current nightmares toward holocausts beyond imagining.

Knapp, Finney, Collins, and several other researchers (most of whom are now involved in Pyregence, the fire-science consortium) have already identified an especially frightening way in which that might happen.

Current simulations suggest we are headed for ever-less winter snowfall in the West, with hotter summers, ever-­worsening droughts, and ever-more acute spells of extreme fire weather—long periods of dry heat that bake moisture out of grass and trees, combined with winds ferocious enough to whip even a small spark into a conflagration.

The collapse of commercial logging, meanwhile, mostly due to environmental regulation, has combined with our collective intolerance for prescribed burns (nobody likes smoky air) to let forests grow unnaturally dense with young trees. More trees means more roots competing for the same underground water. During the drought of 2011 to 2016 in California, that competition, with help from bark beetles, killed a breathtaking 150 million trees in the largest mass die-off ever recorded in the United States.

Nobody knows how all those dead trees will affect wildfire. Initial research suggested that tree mortality would moderately increase risk of severe fire for several years, as dry needles helped fire spread crown-to-crown instead of just along the forest floor. Once all those pine needles fell, which appears to be happening now, risk of severe fire was expected to decrease for a while.

The scariest part was thought to lie at least 10 or 15 years in the future, when all 150 million dead trees—an estimated 95 million bone-dry tons of firewood—were expected to fall on top of an already deep kindling pile of fine conifer duff heaped with small twigs and ever larger tree branches. At that point, we would have collectively prepared the entire western slope of the Sierra Nevada, through more than a century’s work with taxpayer dollars ostensibly aimed at preserving wilderness and the economic value of wood, to incinerate in the greatest firestorm ever seen by human beings.

Neither this horrifying long-term risk nor the overall trend toward increasingly destructive fires has been lost on the California state government, which is how Pyregence came into being. Coordinated by Saah from the University of San Francisco, Pyregence has set out to create an entirely new software ecosystem, including for mass fires and plume-driven megafires. The idea is partly to help firefighters respond and partly to help the rest of us make smart decisions about urban planning and fuel treatments like prescribed burns.

The overall challenge is too big and urgent for any single lab, so Pyregence has divided it up into a sort of distributed Manhattan Project of collaborative fire-modeling research.

Finney has joined a Pyregence working group studying the behavior of large woody fuels piled deep, like in our National Forests out West. Field researchers have gone out and taken detailed measurements of wildfire fuel beds, while Finney, back in Montana, has commissioned the construction of a new burn chamber the size of a grain silo.

Once complete, that chamber will let him replicate wildfire fuel beds by piling logs and other material as much as a few feet deep. He will then ignite them, hit them with wind and moisture, and quantify their burn rate and energy-­release rate—what he calls the “heat-engine part of mass fires.”

“Really what we’re looking for,” Finney says, “is how these things transition to flaming. Instead of just smoldering on the forest floor, how do they become actively involved in these large fires?”

If all goes well, Finney’s working group will eventually code three-dimensional digital simulations of various wildland fuel beds—digital cubes, in essence, not unlike Minecraft voxels—that can be stacked and arranged in infinite variation across landscapes generated by GIS mapping data.

Yet another group, led by Janice Coen of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, has split California into eight fire regions and studied severe past blazes in each. By analyzing how and when those blazes spread, Coen’s team has identified days when fire grew at exceptional speeds, then combed weather-station and satellite data for two related sets of data: local weather conditions like hot local winds that are consistently associated with extreme fire growth; and large-scale weather patterns 500 miles wide and more that are consistently associated with those local conditions.

The hope is to create a meteorological early warning system for extreme fire weather in every region. Coen has already run proof-of-concept testing with an experimental model called Coupled Atmosphere Wildland Fire Environment, or CAWFE (pronounced coffee).

An atmospheric weather simulator coupled with fire-spread algorithms, CAWFE has allowed Coen to plug in the precise local and large-scale weather that occurred around past events like, say, the Carr Fire.

She has even triggered fire ignition at the exact point where the Carr Fire began and watched the fire tornado spin up on its own. The hope, according to Saah, who serves also as managing principal of the environmental think tank Spatial Informatics Group, is someday to supplement the fire-spread component of CAWFE with a fuel model like the one Finney hopes to produce, accounting for the enormous additional heat contributed by long-­burning heavy fuels under open flaming combustion.

By then feeding in live real-time weather data, Pyregence should someday be able to produce, for the first time, accurate near-term predictions of extreme plume-driven mass fire all over California.

At UC Merced, meanwhile, a climate researcher named LeRoy Westerling leads a Pyregence group tackling the crucial long-term problem of how to prevent apocalyptic fires in the future.

This becomes especially pressing, says Westerling, when you consider that every future fire season in the American West is likely to be worse than the last, on average. “How do you adapt to that? It’s not just California,” he says. “It would be the whole West Coast and the Rockies and parts of Canada and Alaska all going off on a regular basis. So just the magnitude of managing fires over that geographical scale simultaneously is staggering, right down to the psychological impact of living with that.”

By way of solution, Westerling’s group is even now developing what Saah calls “statistical machine-learning monstrosities”—big simulation engines that will allow researchers to run various long-range climate scenarios in which ground fuel, regular fire, and even land-management practices like prescribed burns interact with each other.

In an ideal world, this will let policymakers ask questions like, If we get stuck with doomsday-level climate change but do lots of smart prescribed burning while allowing only fire-hardened home construction in the mountains, what might the firestorms of 50 years from now look like?

Catastrophic 2020 fire season

California’s catastrophic 2020 wildfire season kicked off midway through the hottest August on record with a dry thunderstorm in which 12,000 lighting strikes ignited hundreds of fires over the course of a week. Three were among the state’s largest of all time by early September, when hard northeasterly winds blew them into an entirely new realm of superlatives. Near the Blodgett Forest, those northeasterlies pushed the relatively small Bear Fire into a giant pyrocumulonimbus storm; in the space of 24 hours, it ripped across 230,000 acres, one of the largest single-­day fire spreads ever observed, destroying hundreds of structures and killing 15 people. Across the Sacramento Valley, those same winds fused other wildfires into the gargantuan August Complex, the state’s all-time biggest fire by nearly a factor of two, at more than 850,000 acres.

Still more astonishing is the Creek Fire, which ignited on September 4 in an area with a lot of dead trees in the southern Sierra Nevada. By the very next day, a huge pyrocumulonimbus formed and helped burn 115,000 acres through so many popular lakes and cabins and campgrounds—somehow tearing gigantic live trees out of the ground and hurling them across roads—that more than 360 people and 16 dogs got trapped on the shores of the Mammoth Pool Reservoir. That, in turn, forced the California National Guard to rescue hundreds of people overnight in military helicopters, something that had never been done before.

“That’s a weird beast,” says Saah of the Creek Fire. “In our research group, there’s so much conversation around that specific fire, because it’s doing things that are just out of the norm.” Among the most peculiar was the fact that energy release across the Creek Fire’s vast center remained just as hot and high as along its periphery.

This classic hallmark of mass fire may well mean that the scary part—the future in which 150 million dead trees go up in flames—is already upon us. “If you look at satellite images of the Creek Fire,” says Saah, “it looks like a nuclear bomb went off. It’s crazy—just its behavior and its intensity and how fast it grew.” Lareau, the atmospheric physicist, was dumbfounded too. “I’m just kind of at a loss for words,” he says. “Having looked at plenty of big fires that produced big pyrocumulonimbus clouds in the Sierra, I mean, this thing just blows everything out of the water. Instead of the cloud going to 40,000 feet, it’s going to more than 50,000 feet. It’s producing long-lived tornado-­strain vortices for periods of hours.”

Those vortices knocked huge live trees to the ground in circular patterns, some inside a campground and others onto roads, blocking escape routes. The fire’s plume also generated lightning on and off for 12 hours, and another unusual behavior known as plume collapse in which all that hot rising air, upon cooling up high, suddenly reverses direction into a powerful downdraft toward the middle of the blaze, forcing fire outward in all directions, igniting huge new swaths of land.

“It stands out to me as potentially one of the most intense firestorms we’ve ever seen,” Lareau says. “I think it’s in many ways a way more intense fire than the Carr Fire was.”

In the end

FOR KNAPP, OF course, no fire is ever likely to be more intense than the Carr. Especially that moment when he found himself in the middle of a blazing patch of bark chips while burning firebrands ignited homes all around. At that point, Knapp told me recently, “I just had to recognize I didn’t have all my safety equipment, I wasn’t attached to any firefighting resource”—there was nobody to call for help—“and I had a family on the other side of town.”

Heading for his car, Knapp drove right into a traffic jam of terrified neighbors. Slowly, with that tornado roaring overhead and their own homes afire all around, they inched their way down the road to safety.

The next day, Knapp drove back to look at Derksen’s house. More than 60 homes in her neighborhood had been destroyed overnight, including the one right next door. A single ember made it through a ground-level screen vent at Derksen’s place, slowly igniting a floor board. It appeared that, before this fire could burn out of control, passing firefighters had snuffed it out.

The scene was “intense and sad,” as Knapp put it, not least because he and everyone else—unable to see the forest for the trees—had been so unaware of how much danger they were in.

Raven Rock Author Tells Us How Our Government Plans For Its Own Annihilation

We chat all about how the government secretly prepares for the end of the world as we know it and the fortresses and technologies that will protect the chosen few.

By Tyler Rogoway May 24, 2017

The War Zone had a long discussion with Garrett Graff, the author of the fascinating new book, Raven Rock: The U.S. Government's Secret Plan To Save Itself While The Rest Of Us Die. We talked about everything from secret bunkers to how nukes spawned that development of modern communications, and of course all about government after America as we know it has been turned to ashes. It was a lively, eye opening, and bizarre discussion to say the least—just as one should expect when discussing the fine details of America's shadowy continuity of government plans.

Starting in the mid 1940s, a change swept across America and the world that catalyzed the growth of a massive and unprecedented security apparatus. Can you explain a bit about what continuity government is and where it springs from?

It's the term of art for a whole series of plans that grew up over the course of the Cold War, beginning during the Truman years that focused on how nuclear war would unfold, who would be involved, and then what would happen to America in the hours, days and weeks afterwards. And these plans focused not just on, you know, the officials and how they would be evacuated, and where they would be evacuated, but also what parts of the US government would continue, and how the country would try to rebuild and reconstruct and sort of reconnect with whatever citizenry and whatever was left of the country after a nuclear war. This came about after the first atomic bomb was dropped, and the onset of the realities of the atomic age. Before that, as you describe in your book, Truman could just walk across the street without a security detail. And then the atomic bomb became a reality, and things began to change.

Really, this book is the story of an unfolding technology revolution, and how nuclear weapons reshaped and created the modern presidency. Because they did two things. First was the president and other government officials needed to be in command and control and communication at all times. You couldn't have people lose touch for an hour or two, or even a day or two at a time. And that was a huge transition for the presidency, where in the 1800s and early 1900s you would have presidents take off from Washington for weeks or months at a time to travel around the country with very little command and control back in Washington.

Then once nuclear weapons arrived and then got stronger and then more plentiful, you had the beginning of the idea that entire cities could be wiped off the face of the planet with just a few hours notice at first, and then, by the end of the Cold War, with just a few minutes notice. Over the course of the Cold War, the U.S. government built a massive crescent of continuity of government facilities or sorts. These included elaborate communication sites, personnel bunkers, and command and control posts, ranging from southern Pennsylvania all the way to North Carolina. What are some of these shadowy facilities and how does Raven Rock, which is also the name of your book, fit into this invisible constellation of fortresses that dot America's east.

Raven Rock, the name of the book, comes from the government's main bunker, just over the Pennsylvania state line, near Camp David. That was going to be the alternate Pentagon, the place where the US military would have relocated in the event of an attack, or the threat of an attack, on Washington.

But Raven Rock, which is this enormous city within a mountain, could hold about five thousand people and is still in operation today, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is just one of scores of these bunkers in relocation facilities scattered around, as you say, what was known as the "relocation arc," this large stretch from Pennsylvania on down through Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and then even down into North Carolina. And it included lots of bunkers, but also some more unhardened nuclear relocation facilities. The state department set up its operations at a large farm. A beef cattle research farm in Virginia. And the US Information Agency built a massive radio transmitter facility down in North Carolina. The Supreme Court would have actually relocated to a mountain resort in Asheville, North Carolina, where they would've held court sessions in one of the reception halls.

And the bunkers, there were more than a hundred of them at the peak, one for almost every key government agency, and one for almost every cabinet department, with the big ones at Raven Rock, and then Mount Weather, which is where the president and his cabinet officials would have gone. Mount Weather is also still in operation today. And then the Greenbrier in West Virginia, which is where congress would have gone to a bunker that was hidden under a luxury resort in White Sulphur Springs. We know some of these facilities still exist today, and that some of them don't. Are there other ones that are out there that we still have no idea about, such as where they are or what they do?

Absolutely. Many of these facilities were shut down in the wake of the Cold War, but many still exist in all corners of the country. FEMA runs all of these continuity government programs—many people don't know that—and has a whole series of regional command bunkers around the country in places like Texas, Maryland, and Massachusetts.

And then there are bunkers like NORAD, which was made famous by the movie War Games in the 1980s. That bunker was originally shut down in the early 2000s and has actually been re-opened and re-activated in recent years in order to combat the possibility of a cyber attack, or an attack by a rogue nation. Beyond the secret bunkers and Cold War intrigue, your book is really as much a story of about the development of modern communications as anything else. The ability to reliably communicate was probably more important than any other factor when it came to building a credible nuclear deterrent, and pursuing the idea of continuity government. How did the nuclear age spawn great leaps in communications?

This is part of what I found really fascinating in researching this book, is understanding how nuclear war, which obviously, at least yet, has never happened, in many ways created the modern world that we interact with on a daily basis. I mean, the Interstate Highway System was in many ways a creation of the Eisenhower era's needs to try to ensure an easy evacuation from the center of urban areas, and the ability to speed war materiel around the country in the event of an attack.

And then the internet itself grew out of the Pentagon's desire to have a decentralized communication system that could survive a nuclear war. This sort of fundamental tool of modern life really grew out of doomsday planning. In fact, the very technology we use whenever we go online to book an airplane ticket through Kayak or Orbitz, actually is just a descendant of the original air defense system built to track Soviet bombers coming towards the United States. And every chat program that we use in daily life—from Slack to Facebook Messenger—is a descendant of the first chat program which was used to help these emergency bunkers communicate during a national crisis. Some of the continuity of government and civil defense plans you describe are totally bizarre, like harvesting pets for protein. What are some of the wildest parts of this type of planning you've found?

Every government agency had its own post nuclear functions. The post office was in charge of registering the dead and figuring out who was still alive. The National Park Service would help run the refugee camps, because the thinking was the national parks wouldn't have been targeted in a nuclear strike.

When you begin to talk about how to preserve the US government, you ask this very existential question of What is American? Are you trying to preserve the presidency? Are you trying to preserve the three branches of government? Or are you trying to preserve the historical totems and artifacts of our that sort of unite our country?

The National Archives sat down and decided that they were going to save the Declaration of Independence before they save the Constitution. The Library of Congress sat down and decided that they were going to save the Gettysburg Address before they save the George Washington Military Commission.

There was even a specially trained team of park rangers in Philadelphia whose job it was, during the Cold War, to evacuate The Liberty Bell in the event of a Soviet attack. And so this question about how do you save and preserve and restart America ends up being a deeply philosophical one, in addition to the very basic question of, you know, how do you actually just save and preserve the individual elected officials who lead the country? Is there a continuity of government scenario following a massive nuclear attack that won't lead to some sort of dictatorship, even if it's a temporary one?

Part of what's striking is the extent to which the people who really got involved in this planning, effectively said, during the Cold War—and even after 9/11—that to the extent that the US government actually implemented any of these plans, it would generally involve suspending normal peacetime civil liberties, and it would generally involve effectively declaring some form of martial law. There was the nuclear bomber age, where we had hours of warning before an attack. It seemed almost survivable as there was time to prepare, and even a credible air defense system in place to deal with some of those aircraft. Then we hit the advent of the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and everything changed. How did continuity of government planning change once the ICBM came on the scene?

In the early years, atomic war was something that seemed potentially survivable, that you would have a long warning time before bombers could arrive. The first atomic bombs were powerful, but not unthinkably powerful, and then they're also just weren't that many atomic bombs in the early years of the Cold War.

Then all three of those things changed over the course of the Cold War, where you have ICBMs introduced, which cut that warning time down from about eight hours to 15 to 30 minutes. You have the arrival of thermonuclear bombs built to deliver unimaginable destruction on an urban area. And then just the sheer volume and plentifulness of atomic weapons and thermonuclear weapons reach a point where the idea of war was just insane, which is how you got to the eventual theory of mutually assured destruction. So over the course of that arc you see the US government's hopes and dreams shift and shrink from being able to actually protect a large chunk of the civilian population, in the 1950s and early 1960s, until what you basically have show up later in the Cold War, when effectively the American people were going to be left totally on their own. And if we were lucky a small number of senior government officials were going to be able to evacuated to safety. Wouldn't Congress and the Supreme Court be nearly irrelevant after a major nuclear attack?

Yes, absolutely. You sort of saw these plans shrink over the course of the Cold War to something that I describe as basically trying to preserve the spirit of the Constitution, but not the letter of the Constitution.

Congress really understood that it was going to be pretty irrelevant in the immediate aftermath of a nuclear war. And that the Supreme Court was going to be entirely irrelevant for months after a nuclear attack, and their plans to preserve and protect those officials sort of shrank away and even disappeared. And the modern incarnation of these plans, which are known as enduring a constitutional government, remain the most secret of all of the continuity of government plans in modern life. We don't really know how they preserve or cease to preserve the three branch structure that we're used to in peacetime.

But what we've guessed based on publicly available information is they will probably provide super-empowered powers to a small group of congressional members—perhaps as few as two to four to eight of them—who are able to sort of serve as a "rump congress" until congress is actually able to reconstitute itself at some point in the future. Some of our leaders were seemingly more realistic about what nuclear war would actually look like, and the results of it, than others. Eisenhower stated that after a nuclear exchange there wouldn't be enough bulldozers to scrape the bodies off the streets. Now that's a pretty eye opening statement. How did different Commanders In Chief generally look at continuity of government, and which do you think had the best handle on it?

I think actually what's interesting about this is the extent to which planning for doomsday, and planning for nuclear war, really shaped the way the presidents thought about nuclear war. And the extent to which you really saw officials at the top of government, including almost every president of the Cold War, go through these doomsday exercises—these nuclear war exercises aboard a nuclear doomsday airborne command post or in one of these bunkers, and conduct an evacuation drill and nuclear war exercises, and just how worrying those exercises were for the Commanders In Chief.

You see it with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Carter and Reagan. And for each of them, they really thought long and hard about nuclear war in the context of thinking through these doomsday plans. And I think that the exercise and that experience helped shape their decision making during some key Cold War crises—when they all took steps back from the precipice, rather than push forward into war. Does it worry you that there are a lot of reports stating President Trump doesn't seem very interested in details like this? This is reportedly the case across the full range of the government, and he has supposedly delegated decision making authority to the military on a fairly unprecedented level, at least in modern times.

Yes. And I think that you have a president also who has made very troubling comments about his own appreciation of nuclear weapons, and the extent to which he would like to see nuclear weapons spread in the world. Which goes against decades of US policies to try and limit nuclear proliferation around the world. Does a more perceptually effective continuity of government plan, including elaborate infrastructure like massive bunkers, fleets of evacuation helicopters, and airborne command posts, where government officials, and even their families in certain cases, might be able to survive a nuclear change, make an exchange or getting involved in nuclear conflict more acceptable or attractive in any way?

Well, I think we have seen that a lot of emphasis since 9/11, really since the 1990s, but definitely since 9/11, has been put on the idea of devolving control of the US government. Which is this idea that we may be less likely today to face an all out global thermonuclear war with Russia, that blankets the entire country, but that we are more at risk of today's threats from a terrorist group or from a rogue state like Iran or North Korea. And these threats may manifest themselves in a surprise attack that wipes out a major US city like Washington DC. And then how do you devolve power within the US government to people who exist outside of Washington on a regular basis. And that's one of the reasons that all of these bunkers are to this day fully staffed, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Like Raven Rock, and Mount Weather, and others around the country. That sounds more like planning based on a shadow government of sorts, or maybe a stand-in government as opposed to relying on traditional evacuation plans alone, correct?

Yes. I mean that's sort of a very exclusive part of this. Most Americans think that the president is just a person that we elect every four years. In the modern age, the presidency actually encompasses several hundred people where you have a line of succession. The vice president, speaker of the house, president pro tem of the senate, and then all of the cabinet officials. But then each of those cabinet officials also have their own line of succession of 12, 15, 20 people or more. And so when you sort of think about that emergency government that might emerge after an attack on Washington, you're talking about a cadre of several hundred people who are all part of these lines of succession, and would be in line to be evacuated to different facilities depending on their rank, and would be stepping into these roles after after an attack. After over a half century of planning and ungodly sums of money spent preparing for what comes after the country is basically destroyed, that massive apparatus failed miserably on 9/11. What went wrong that day and how did it change the way we plan for doomsday and other major disasters?

9/11 is the only time that most of these plans have ever been activated on any sort of large scale. They just fall apart entirely, and they fell apart for some predictable reasons. It turned out that Washington, DC had a lot of traffic, and that they were sort of gridlocked trying to get officials outside of Washington. And they fell apart because on any given day you have a lot of government officials traveling. And so you have a lot of senior government officials who were in different places doing different things and it was hard to track them down.

And then what we also saw was the tension that had existed in continuity planning all along, which is you can't generally keep someone safe and keep them in communication at the same time. So you have a lot of officials that were being evacuated, including the President of the United States, who was in Florida and was put aboard Air Force One and sent up into the sky, and were really struggling to stay in communication with anyone on the ground and to stay abreast of a rapidly unfolding situation. We know that Air Force One has far better communications than it did on 9/11, and there have been upgrades to the Situation Room and the White House Bunker, and so on. Are there other much larger systemic changes that were made following 9/11 to improve America's continuity of government plans and to fix the issues that were exposed by 9/11?

Certainly some changes have been made. Communications today are vastly better than they were. You see a lot of improvement in the readiness and preparedness of places like Raven Rock, NORAD, and Mount Weather in terms of what they are capable of and how there is staff there on a daily basis. But at the same time, you know, part of the challenge with all of these plans is that as in any attack or in any war, you can make very, very detailed neat and clean looking plans on paper, but in reality they are going to unfold in chaotic ways that make it very hard to understand what might actually transpire. Your book describes such a massive and bewilderingly costly apparatus built up around the continuity of government concept. Is continuity of government planning really just a giant form of mental masturbation? Not even our most capable bunkers can sustain direct hits from thermonuclear weapons and it seem like all the planning would likely fail to hold up to the realities of a major nuclear exchange. One could argue that the whole idea has become a manifestation of the "self-licking ice cream cone" that is the defense-industrial complex more than anything else. I mean is this worth investing in at all?

Certainly many of these plans would have never worked anywhere close to the way that one would expect them to on paper. But at the same time, you know, I think there is value in thinking through some of these questions. Because of just how awful any sort of large-scale attack is going to be, you want to make sure you have a plan, and as best a chance as you can have of ensuring that something is left to rebuild the country.

Russia has its own form of continuity government plans. We saw them at work during a 2016 drill where tens of millions of people were involved. In Moscow alone, millions were put into shelters below the city. And generally the Russians seem to have adopted a different viewpoint on all this where saving the citizenry is a focal tenet of their doomsday planning. How are Russia's plans different than America's, and do they know something we don't know?

You know, this was sort of a hard thing to parse all through the Cold Warwhether the Soviet Union actually had a better civil defense strategy than we did. You know that famous scene in Doctor Strangelove, where they're debating and worrying and fretting over the possibility of "mineshaft gap?" Actually, the US government was afraid of a mineshaft gap during the Cold War. And that we were afraid of Russia's civil defense ability. We were literally out there mapping abandoned mine shafts and caves around the country for possible fall-out shelters for the civilian population, and our government leaders. You wrote about how the US had terrible problems with their command and control computer systems during the Cold War. One of the scenarios you outlined was the fault of a bad 46 cent circuit that made NORAD think armageddon was on its way in the form of a barrage of Russian ICBMs. Considering we supposedly had some sort of computer edge over the Russians during that period of time, are you surprised that the Soviet Union didn't have similar issues, and that those issues didn't lead to a nuclear exchange of some sort?

Yeah, and to me that was a very humbling part of researching the Cold War—going back and understanding just how miraculous it was that we escaped without major incident. Because there are plenty of times during the Cold War where war would have been the more likely, and perhaps even more politically expedient, option for leaders on both sides.

You know, when Eisenhower left government, he said the thing that he was most proud of was keeping the peace, and that it didn't just happen. And I think that one of the lessons, when you go back and you read these histories, and really understand the extent to which some of these scenarios could have spiraled out of control very quickly, you come to understand, just how lucky we are that we had such good leaders during the Cold War. In Raven Rock, you touched frequently on some past elements of emergency planning that sound like the domain of the conspiracy theory crowd, but it was all too true. Primarily I am talking about concentration-like camps. For instance, you mention orders for citizens to be told to register at a local Walmart and to shelter there with thousands of other people—with plans that call for those people to sleep head-to-toe in unrealistically neat rows and that these facilities have far too few bathrooms to support such a plan in the first place. You also talk about the rounding up foreigners and the FBI being sent to go grab targeted individuals during a national emergency or nuclear attack situation. What do you think the continuity situation. What do you think the continuity government plans today have in them that would probably be alarming for most people to hear?

Well, I think that most of these plans still exist in some modern form. You know, we don't really have any sense of what it means to have these continuity of government plans for the three branches of government in modern times. We don't really know what role Congress would do after an attack. We don't know if the Supreme Court would have any role whatsoever. And what I think almost everyone understands, is that after a nuclear attack, the President of the United States would be effectively a dictator for some period of time, until we were able to restore something that was a kin to the constitution that we normally expect.

You wrote about how it was a common occurrence during high-level nuclear exercises that the guy playing the president wouldn't press the button to launch the nukes even though it was clearly a simulated event. Is this an indicator that if it really came down to it, even the actual president wouldn't be able to initiate a nuclear counterstrike?

Yeah, and I think that's one of the things that is really sobering about this is realizing how much people struggled, even in exercises, to consider launching a simulated nuclear weapon. And whether or not at the end of the day, even if one side or another did launch some weapons, whether the other side would've ever actually retaliated. What prompted you to write this book? It is pretty apparent that putting it together was one hell of an undertaking.

Yeah, it was. It was about four years of research which is longer than I was anticipating. The short answer is, you know, I bumped up against these programs a lot in Washington. I'm sure you have too writing and reporting on these things. You talk to people who have been to these facilities. You would talk to people who would have been, of were evacuated to some of these facilities on 9/11. And then what sort of really got me interested in the topic was when one of my colleagues found a government ID on the floor of a parking garage here that he brought in to me to turnover—to give to me to give back to the guy, figuring that since I reported on the stuff, I would know how to get it back to him.

When I turned the ID over, it had these detailed evacuation instructions on the back. And so I got on Google Maps and Google Satellite, and followed those instructions, which were driving directions out into West Virginia. And discovered that they led to this road that disappeared into what were clearly concrete bunker doors in the side of a mountain. And it was an unmarked mountain that wasn't on any map. And no one nor I had ever heard of this facility. I was like, wow, this is part of the new post 9/11, you know, continuity government plans. And this is something that's probably worth looking into more.

What facility was that?

It was actually the facility that I talk about right at the end of the book, which is Allegany Ballistics Laboratory.

Did you try to get a tour of one of these facilities like Raven Rock or Mount Weather?

I couldn't get into Mount Weather or Raven Rock , but I did have the opportunity to tour NORAD, which is similar physically to the others, and a little bit more open. And then a lot of these facilities are also now tourist attractions of one sort or another. For instance, the Greenbrier congressional bunker in West Virginia, as well as some of these older retired bunkers like John F Kennedy's presidential escape bunker in Palm Beach, Florida, out on Peanut Island, actually just across the harbor from Trumps house at Mar-a-Lago. And when you get into that one, you definitely realize that it is not a place you would have wanted to have spent a nuclear war. A huge thanks to Garrett Grafffor taking the time to talk to us (he worked us in around CNN!). I will be posting a formal review on Raven Rock soon as well.

Satanic Temple Sues Billboard Company That Refused Signs for Abortion Ritual Killing Babies

State Micaiah Bilger Sep 30, 2020 | 3:55PM Washington, DC

After declaring abortion a “religious ritual” earlier this year, The Satanic Temple is suing an advertising company for refusing to place its pro-abortion billboards in Arkansas and Indiana.

On Monday, the Satanic group announced its lawsuit against Lamar Billboard Company, accusing it of religious discrimination and a breach of contract.

The Satanic Temple said it wants to put up eight billboards that advertise its “abortion ritual” near pro-life pregnancy centers in Indiana and Arkansas.

One billboard declares “Abortions save lives!” as well as “Our religious abortion ritual averts many state restrictions.” A second billboard shows an image of a mixing bowl with cake batter next to another image of a human sperm about to fertilize an egg. The words “Not a cake” and “Not a baby” are next to the images. The comparison actually is laughable because no one thinks that an unfertilized egg is a baby. It is once the sperm fertilizes the egg that a unique, living human being is conceived, and that is when the problem with abortion starts.

Both billboards also include the pro-abortion group’s website and an image of Satan inside a black star. According to the Satanic group, the company rejected its ad designs for being “misleading and offensive.” Its contract with Lamar states that the company may reject a billboard that is not “in good taste and in line with the moral standards of the individual communities in which it is to be displayed,” the group continued.

However, the Satanic Temple claimed the company discriminated against it because of its religious beliefs. “TST expressed willingness to update its designs. However, Lamar refused to specify any component that they believe is problematic, so it was not possible for TST to offer revisions,” the group said in a statement. “Additionally, TST claims Lamar acted in bad faith and has deprived TST of the ability to advertise its religious abortion ritual as it holds a monopoly over much of the US billboard market.” In August, The Satanic Temple admitted proudly that, in its belief system, killing an unborn baby in an abortion is a religious ritual similar to communion or baptism for Christians. The disturbing announcement is part of the cult’s new plan to overturn pro-life laws using a religious freedom argument.

“Many states have laws that interfere with our members’ ability to practice their religious beliefs,” said Satanic Temple spokesperson Jane Essex at the time. “No Christian would accept a mandatory waiting period before they can partake in communion. No Christian would tolerate a law that insists state counseling is necessary before someone can be baptized. Our members are justly entitled to religious liberty in order to practice our rituals as well.”

It claims its abortion ritual is a “spiritual experience designed to instill confidence and self-worth in accordance to TST’s religious beliefs.”

The pro-abortion group also raffled off a free abortion to raise money for its campaign.

For years, the Satanic Temple has been suing to overturn pro-life state laws, but so far all of its efforts have failed. In June, a federal appeals court rejected its latest attempt at challenging Missouri’s informed consent law. In 2019, the Missouri Supreme Court dismissed another one of the Satanic Temple’s lawsuits.

But every time it loses, it tries again with a new approach. Its new plan is to challenge pro-life laws based on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which ensures the government does not unnecessarily interfere with people’s religious freedom.

The Satanic Temple is heavily involved in abortion activism in the U.S. Breitbart once described its work as a “pro-abortion crusade to come to the aid of America’s largest abortion provider,” Planned Parenthood.

Some of its members also attempt to intimidate peaceful pro-life sidewalk counselors through gruesome protests. In 2016, pro-life advocates outside of a Detroit, Michigan Planned Parenthood faced a disturbing scene when a group from the Satanic Temple arrived to counter-protest wearing baby masks and carrying whips. They held a similar protest on Good Friday in 2017.

Years ago, former satanist Zachary King told the Lepanto Institute that the cult performs satanic rituals inside abortion facilities. King said participating in abortions is particularly important for satanists because it is considered the best way to give an offering to Satan.

He explained: “In Satanism, killing something or the death of something is the most effective way of getting your spell accomplished. As far as trying to get Satan’s approval, to give you something that you want, killing something is the best way to go. Killing something is the ultimate offering to Satan, and if you can kill an unborn, that is his ultimate goal.”

Erdogan's Plan to Take Over the Palestinian Authority

by Khaled Abu Toameh October 2, 2020 at 5:00 am

What we are witnessing is an Arab autocrat (Abbas) seeking the help of a Muslim autocrat (Erdogan) in holding "free and fair" elections. Abbas, it seems, is confident that Erdogan's observers would rubber-stamp the results of any Palestinian election to ensure that the PA president emerges victorious

Now he [Erdogan] has a chance to use the Palestinian elections to try to bring his Hamas friends to power after getting rid of Abbas.

"It is terrifying that Abbas speaks as if he lives in another world. Is there a Palestinian interest in attacking the US administration, even if this administration takes unfair positions against the Palestinians? Is there a Palestinian interest in referring negatively to the peace accords between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain? There is a Palestinian need to return to reality. There is a Palestinian need to come to terms with the truth." — Khairallah Khairallah, Lebanese journalist and political commentator, al-Arabiya, September 29, 2020.

On September 21, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas phoned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and requested that Turkey send Turkish observers to monitor Palestinian elections, if and when they are held.

The phone call came as Turkey hosted a meeting between Abbas's ruling Fatah faction and the Iran-backed Hamas movement. At the meeting, the Fatah and Hamas reportedly agreed to hold long overdue elections for the PA presidency and parliament, the Palestine Legislative Council (PLC).

Abbas's request surprised many Palestinians and Arabs, especially in the wake of charges that Erdogan had forged the 2018 presidential and parliamentary elections in Turkey. Shortly after the voting ended, thousands of Twitter users launched a hashtag called #Erdogan_forged_election, accusing him of rigging the elections.

This was not the first time that Erdogan has been accused of election fraud. In 2014, Turkey's opposition accused Erdogan's party of rigging the country's local elections.

What we are witnessing is an Arab autocrat (Abbas) seeking the help of a Muslim autocrat (Erdogan) in holding "free and fair" elections. Abbas, it seems, is confident that Erdogan's observers would rubber-stamp the results of any Palestinian election to ensure that the PA president emerges victorious.

The 85-year-old Abbas, currently in the 15th year of his four-year-term in office, appears to be an admirer of Erdogan's authoritarian rule. While Erdogan is seeking to resurrect the Ottoman Empire and assume the role of Sultan (ruler of a Muslim realm), Abbas is searching for ways to hold onto power until his last day.

Erdogan apparently wants to expand his influence in the Middle East by meddling in the affairs of the Palestinians after already involving himself in conflicts in Libya and Syria. Now he has a chance to use the Palestinian elections to try to bring his Hamas friends to power after getting rid of Abbas.

Abbas, who has no intention of competing with Erdogan for the title of Sultan, wants to maintain his status as president-for-life of the Palestinians. Abbas is hoping that Erdogan will assist him in achieving his goal.

In January 2005, Abbas was elected president of the Palestinian Authority. The next presidential election was supposed to take place in January 2009, but a dispute that erupted between Fatah and Hamas has so far prevented the Palestinians from holding presidential and parliamentary elections. The last Palestinian parliamentary election was held in January 2006, when Hamas won most of the Palestine Legislative Council seats.

A year later, Hamas staged a violent coup in the Gaza Strip, overthrowing Abbas's PA and seizing full control of the coastal enclave, home to nearly two million Palestinians. Since then, the Palestinians have been left without a parliament due to the split between the PA-controlled West Bank and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. Several attempts by Egypt and other Arab countries to resolve the Fatah-Hamas rift over the past 12 years have failed, leaving the Palestinians with two separate mini-states: one in the West Bank, the other in the Gaza Strip.

Abbas, in the past 11 years, has more than once expressed his desire to end the conflict with Hamas and pave the way for holding the long overdue elections. Such statements have often been ridiculed by his critics.

"Palestinian elections are merely a lie we've been hearing for years and never see happening on the ground," noted several social media users on Twitter. One posted a video that included various statements by Abbas in which he talks about holding new elections.

In 2009, Abbas announced: "I have issued a decree for holding presidential and parliamentary elections on January 24, 2010."

In 2016, Abbas stated: "We are continuing our sincere efforts to achieve Palestinian reconciliation [with Hamas] by forming a national unity government on the basis of the PLO program and holding presidential and parliamentary elections."

In 2017, Abbas, in a speech at the United Nations General Assembly, called on Hamas to allow the Palestinian Authority to assume its responsibilities in the Gaza Strip and hold general elections.

Last year, in another speech at the UN General Assembly, Abbas again announced his intention to hold presidential and parliamentary elections. "Upon my return to the homeland," he said, "I will call general elections in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Jerusalem."

In September 2020, during a videoconference meeting of leaders of Palestinian factions, Abbas said:

"Despite all the obstacles you are aware of, we are preparing to hold the parliamentary election, and then the presidential election, with the participation of all the Palestinian factions."

Abbas has long managed to avoid fulfilling his election promise, once by blaming Hamas and another time by blaming Israel. As far as Abbas is concerned, everyone is to blame for the absence of free and fair elections except himself.

Now Palestinians and some Arabs are saying that they no longer believe Abbas. A hashtag trending on Twitter under the name "The Election Play" shows that many Palestinians and Arabs are skeptical of Abbas's real intentions.

"We have become used to the talk about elections," remarked Hesham Abo Al-Hosom, a Palestinian political activist from the Gaza Strip. "The elections Abbas is talking about are a play steeped in lies and delusions."

Palestinian social media user Rawan Armana commented: "We are fed up with speeches, lies and deceit. We have lost confidence [in our leaders]."

Tareq Al-Farra, a member of Fatah, derided Abbas's repeated promise to hold elections: "When will this play end? We are tired of statements about holding general elections and achieving national unity. Stop your lies."

Yara Lolo, who describes herself as a supporter of Abbas's arch-rival, Mohammed Dahlan, wrote: "The people who elect corrupt opportunists and swindlers are not considered victims, but rather partners in crime."

Commenting on Abbas's request that Turkey monitor the Palestinian elections, Egyptian social media user Ahmed Maka wrote:

"Did you know that the Palestinian Authority president called on Turkey to monitor the Palestinian elections, despite the fact that Turkey itself rigged the local elections [in Turkey], according to the testimony of international observers?"

Lebanese political analyst Nidal Al-Sabeh also expressed concern over Abbas's demand that Turkey monitor the Palestinian elections. The PA president's request to Erdogan, Al-Sabeh said, "exposes to Abbas's stance against Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Syria, and his involvement with the Qatari-Turkish project."

Khairallah Khairallah, a Lebanese journalist and political commentator, wondered whether the proposed elections would lead to real change on the ground and put an end to Hamas's "Taliban-style Islamic emirate" in the Gaza Strip:

"With the exception of Turkey, which hosted the Fatah-Hamas meeting to assert its regional role, it is not known how the elections will lead to a profound change that the Palestinians need more than ever... The elections can be the gateway to a major change. Most of all, the elections can be a bridge to a transformation that leads to the birth of a different Palestinian leadership. It is terrifying that Abbas speaks as if he lives in another world. Is there a Palestinian interest in attacking the US administration, even if this administration takes unfair positions against the Palestinians? Is there a Palestinian interest in referring negatively to the peace accords between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain? There is a Palestinian need to return to reality. There is a Palestinian need to come to terms with the truth."

Khairallah called on the Palestinian factions to explain what they mean when they talk about achieving national unity and holding new elections. "There is a need to stop selling illusions," he added.

"There is a need to adapt to international and regional developments. There is a need to acknowledge that national unity cannot be restored by appeasing Turkey or Iran, or by acknowledging the legitimacy of what Hamas is doing in Gaza. Palestinian elections cannot be held without a clear vision that is based above all on preserving an independent Palestinian decision, away from the interference of Turkey and Iran."

Palestinian political analyst Hani al-Masri said it was "useless" to talk about holding elections while the Palestinians are divided.

"Without a unity government that provides an atmosphere of confidence and respect for human rights and freedoms, combats corruption, and unifies institutions, especially the judiciary, there can be no elections... What is required is a new and strategic vision, a single leadership, and a true partnership."

Erdogan's renewed interest in the Palestinian issue might be seen in the context of his embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates, including Hamas. If Erdogan is going to send Turkish observers to monitor the Palestinian elections, it is because he would like to help his friends in Hamas win the vote.

A report by the Century Foundation on the Turkish government's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood estimated that 20,000 Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood members live on Turkish soil. Recently, another report revealed that Turkey has given passports to a dozen members of Hamas in Istanbul.

Erdogan evidently cares about Hamas more than Abbas does. The Turkish leader would certainly like to see Palestinians hold new elections -- and he is prepared to provide all the help needed. By inviting Turkey to monitor the elections, Abbas is playing into the hands of Erdogan and Hamas. Abbas is advancing Turkey's mission of replacing his regime with a Muslim Brotherhood-led government.

The Abraham Accords

By Hal Lindsey

On August 13th of this year, the United States, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates released a joint statement announcing an agreement normalizing relations between Israel and the UAE. They call their agreement the Abraham Accords. The announcement explained their choice for that name. “Recognizing that the Arab and Jewish peoples are descendants of a common ancestor, Abraham.”

Less than a month later, on September 12th, the White House announced that Bahrain had also agreed to normalization of ties with Israel.

The reactions of other Arab nations have been mixed. A group from the Kuwaiti assembly representing Liberals, Shi'ites, Islamists, and Arabists condemned the treaty. Significantly, however, the Kuwait government remained silent. That means they left their options open. Oman supported the agreement. Saudi Arabia said they would not normalize relations with Israel until the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

The Accords represent a remarkable turn of events and a huge diplomatic victory for the United States. Some have said that the Abraham Accords cannot be called a “peace agreement” because the nations involved were not officially at war with one another. While technically true, that fails to recognize the depth of enmity these Muslim nations have shown toward Israel over the seven decades of modern Israel’s existence.

After years of blood threats and extreme rage, why peace now? We should give a lot of credit to the President and his team, especially his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. But the most important factor is Iran. That nation scares everyone in the region. It has a large and growing nuclear weapons program. It is quickly developing missiles to carry those nukes wherever it wants to send them. It has developed ties to Russia and China. And its military meddling across the region shows that it has no respect for the sovereignty of neighbors. Israel makes a strong friend in such a dangerous time.

Even those Gulf nations that condemned the agreement continue to show a desire for friendship with Israel. That, too, is because of the severe and imminent threat posed by Iran. Only a few years ago, friendly overtures between these nations and Israel seemed impossible. Today, all that has changed.

Since before Israel declared its independence, these nations showed nothing but hatred for Israel. Yet the Bible teaches that a peace agreement between Israel, its neighbors, and the Antichrist will mark the starting point of the seven years of tribulation coming on the world. Until recently, such a peace treaty seemed utterly impossible. Now, it makes perfect sense.

Antichrist’s peace treaty will be hailed as miraculous, but the peace it will bring will be both short and weak. We can already see the nations moving in the direction of peace. But we can also see the inherent weakness of that future treaty. There remains a fundamental prejudice against Jews written into the Koran and other teachings associated with Mohammed.

The fracture lines that will mark the breakup of the Antichrist’s peace treaty are also evident. We already see the “king of the south” nations aligning, including most of the Gulf States. We also see the Ezekiel 38 group beginning to form.

You might wonder how Antichrist could ever convince Iran to agree to peace with Israel. That will probably be accomplished because of Russia’s power over Iran, and Russia’s need to be part of the world trade groups that Antichrist will control. But Ezekiel 38 says that Russia, Turkey, Iran, and certain African nations will form into another coalition that will break away from Antichrist’s peace accord and move against Israel.

The world is rapidly realigning itself into the place described by the Bible in the last days. It is an awe-inspiring thing to see. Thousands of years ago, prophets wrote down God’s words, and what He said then is coming true today. That provides a strong reason to trust Him and His word. In a time when it’s hard to know who you can believe, you can know that God has spoken, and believe Him.

Trump Surprises Supporters Outside Walter Reed

Sunday, 04 October 2020 05:27 PM

President Donald Trump on Sunday afternoon made a surprise visit to supporters who have been gathered outside Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, riding by in his presidential motorcade, waving while wearing his mask.

CNN broadcast the images live, unaware that Trump had tweeted out that he was about to surprise supporters with a visit. That prompted questions as to whether Trump was headed back to the White House a day earlier than expected.

Trump, who is being treated for COVID-19, is seen wearing a cloth mask while others in the black SUV are wearing medical-grade N95 masks. The Secret Service members driving Trump also wore protective eyewear and gowns.

Trump tweeted out a video announcing his visit about 10 minutes prior.

"We're getting great reports from the doctor. This is an incredible hospital. Walter Reed, the work they do is just absolutely amazing and I want to thank them all. The nurses, the doctors, everybody here. I've also gotten to meet some of the soldiers and first responders. What a group," the president said.

"I also think we're going to pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have out on the street. They've been out there for a long time. They've got Trump flags and they love our country. I'm not telling anybody but you, but I'm about to make a little surprise visit. So perhaps I'll get there before you get to see me." Trump has reportedly been upset with the messaging from doctors and his chief of staff Mark Meadows that has shown conflicting information on how he is doing, and the appearance also allowed him to show clearly how he doing.

The president in his video also said he's learned a lot about COVID-19.

"I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn't the 'let's read the book school,'" he said.

"And I get it. And I understand it. And it's very interesting thing and I'm going to be letting you know about it. In the meantime, we love the USA and we love what's happening."

While the move was met with praise by supporters, critics, including some in the medical community, called it irresponsible.

Dr. James P. Phillips, chief of disaster medicine at George Washington University Department of Emergency Medicine and an attending physician at Walter Reed, tweeted:

"Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential 'drive-by' just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die. For political theater. Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity.

"That Presidential SUV is not only bulletproof, but hermetically sealed against chemical attack. The risk of COVID19 transmission inside is as high as it gets outside of medical procedures. The irresponsibility is astounding. My thoughts are with the Secret Service forced to play."

Destruction Mounts As Azerbaijan And Armenia Increase Hostilities

October 4, 20203:33 PM ET Matthew S. Schwartz

A decades-long dispute over territory in the southern Caucasus has led to open hostilities between Azerbaijan and Armenia this past week. Azerbaijan's second-largest city, Ganja, came under attack Sunday, with government officials saying Armenia had launched missiles into residential areas. Armenia has denied the charges; the leader of the territory at the center of the dispute said his forces were responsible for the attack.

Azerbaijani officials said one civilian was killed in the attack, and 32 more were injured.

"Opening fire on the territory of Azerbaijan from the territory of Armenia is clearly provocative and expands the zone of hostilities," Azerbaijani Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov said in a statement, the Associated Press reported.

The "insane Political-military leadership of Armenia" is a threat to regional peace and security, Hikmet Hajiyev, an aide to Azerbaijan's president, wrote on Twitter. "Azerbaijan retains its right to take adequate measures against legitimate military targets to defend civilians," he added.

Armenia denied the charges. "No fire of any kind is being opened from the territory of Armenia in Azerbaijan's direction," the nation's defense ministry said. The hostilities have to do with the disputed territory of the Nagorno-Karabakh, known locally as Artsakh, which the two former Soviet republics have competing claims to. The territory itself is closely allied with Armenia. The fighting has engaged allies in the region, including Turkey, which has pledged its unwavering support of Azerbaijan, which is ethnically Turkish.

Nagorno-Karabakh's leader said his forces were responsible for the missiles. "As act of self-protection, in response to days long deliberate shelling" with "prohibited cluster munitions ... I ordered to bombard Ganja military facilities," Arayik Harutyunyan said on Twitter.

Harutyunyan said he had later given an order to stand down, "to avoid loss among civilians." But he promised a "commensurate response" against military targets should Azerbaijan continue its aggression. The latest fighting, which broke out one week ago, is the most sustained and serious violence the region has seen in years, and has involved heavy artillery, tanks and missiles. The BBC reports more than 100 confirmed deaths between civilians and combatants on the Armenian side. Azerbaijan hasn't released details on military casualties, but said that 24 civilians have been killed and over 100 wounded.

"We don't know exactly what caused this recent flare-up," NPR international correspondent Lucian Kim told Morning Edition shortly after fighting began. "Both sides are blaming each other, but Azerbaijan has vowed to take back Nagorno-Karabakh. And this time, it's getting the support from Turkey."

On Thursday, Armenia's military said it had shot down four Azerbaijani drones near the Armenian capital of Yerevan. Last week, Turkey denied that its aircraft or drones were being used against Armenia. But Armenian officials said that Turkish military advisors were directing the operation from the ground. According to the BBC, Turkish military drones are being used in the conflict.

On Friday, the International Committee of the Red Cross warned that civilians were being killed on both sides of the conflict.

"People have been in touch with the ICRC who are terrified for themselves and their families and at a loss as to where to go or what to do to stay safe," said ICRC's Eurasia regional director Martin Schüepp. "They are caught in the crossfire and deeply fearful for their safety and future."

New coronavirus cases are on the decline in only three US states

By Madeline Holcombe and Christina Maxouris, CNN

Only three U.S. states are reporting a decline in new COVID-19 cases compared to last week.

As of Saturday night, new cases were down in Texas, Missouri and South Carolina, while 21 states reported a rise in cases and a little more than half held steady compared with the week before. The mixed results come as the president joined the more than 7.3 million people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the U.S., a sobering reminder of the virus' reach as health experts urge continued vigilance during the fall and winter months.

The 21 states reporting a rise in new cases are Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Wisconsin reported a record number of 2,892 new daily cases on Saturday, according to data from the state's department of health services. The previous record was set earlier in the week. The state's governor urged residents to "get back to the basics" of fighting the virus.

"The surges we're seeing across our state are not an indication that masks don't work. This underscores what we've said all along which is that masks only work if everyone wears them," Gov. Tony Evers said.

A comprehensive approach

Though still below the summer peak of about 67,000 in July, the seven-day average of new daily cases in the U.S. is about 42,400. The average is more than 20% higher than it was on Sept. 12 and, according to health officials, is far too high if the country wants to avoid a spike when the public moves indoors with the coming colder weather.

As the New York City Health Department tracks four "concerning clusters" in southern Brooklyn, Williamsburg, Central Queens and Far Rockaway, the state of New York announced that it conducted a record high of more than 130,000 coronavirus tests Friday.

In total, New York has administered 11 million total coronavirus diagnostic tests, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

But to get on top of the numbers, the U.S. needs a more "comprehensive approach," Dr. Tom Frieden, the former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday.

"Testing does not replace safety measures including consistent mask use, physical distancing, and hand washing," said Frieden.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear responded to the state's record high of 1,275 cases in one day with a request that everyone wear masks and a reminder that "we have to do better."

"We've got to get back to enforcing these rules because 1,275 cases are going to result in a lot of death, too," Beshear said in a video statement. He said his office would provide details on Monday on how to "step up" mask enforcement.

Experts advise who should get vaccines first

Several companies are conducting COVID-19 vaccine Phase 3 trials in the U.S., but when a safe and effective vaccine will be available to the U.S. population remains uncertain.

Experts advising the federal government say frontline health care workers and those who provide health care facility services should be the first to get vaccinated, followed by people at high risk of severe illness due to underlying health conditions.

Next should come older adults living in congregate settings, like nursing homes, a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee said in a final report. But local leaders should also give priority to vulnerable communities, the committee said. That addition comes after criticism over the group's draft report that was issued last month, which did not mention minority communities that have been hit hardest by the pandemic.

The committee recommends that within each phase of vaccinations, authorities prioritize people in high vulnerability areas, identified by a tool like the CDC's Social Vulnerability Index. The index uses U.S. Census variables to identify communities in particular need of disaster support which the committee says considers the factors that place racial minorities at higher risk of COVID-19.

The third phase proposes vaccination for young adults, children and those in industries where people may receive some protection but are still at risk of exposure, such as banks and universities.

A vaccination for children, the committee said, will depend on whether a vaccine has been tested in that population. Pediatric specialists recently called for COVID-19 vaccine trials to begin for children saying that population has been "stuck in neutral."

The final phase covers anyone who has yet to receive vaccination.

Hospitalizations rise for the first time since July

According to the COVID Tracking Project, the average number of people hospitalized for coronavirus in a week rose recently for the first time since July.

This past week saw an average of about 30,000 hospitalized -- a rise of 2.4% from the previous week, and the first jump after eight weeks of decline, CTP reported.

While daily deaths in the U.S. are still dropping, "the decline appears to have slowed," CTP said in a Thursday blog post.

In Wisconsin, hospitalizations more than doubled last month, according to CTP.

In one part of Wisconsin, a health care professional warned the community is "nearing a crisis."

"This spike we're seeing in Brown County, Wisconsin, should be a wake-up call to anyone who lives here that our community is facing a crisis," said Dr. Paul Casey, medical director of the emergency department at Bellin Hospital in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Wisconsin's seven-day average of new daily infections soared in recent weeks, from the high 600s and low 700s in late August to its all-time high of 2,892 on Saturday.

Syrian rebels reportedly sent to fight in Azerbaijan-Armenia conflict

Different sides are accusing one another of recruiting foreigners to the battle

By Hollie McKay | Fox News

The ongoing bloody battle between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the border area of Nagorno-Karabakh is quickly being seen as a potential proxy war between Ankara and Moscow, which stand on opposite sides of the long-standing dispute. Reports and accusations emerged this week that impoverished and desperate Syrian opposition fighters, defeated by the throes of almost 10 years of civil war and supported by Turkey in their final stronghold of Idlib, were recruited by private Turkish defense contractors and summoned to take up arms in Nagorno-Karabakh.

One Syrian fighter, who requested anonymity given his proximity to Turkey, told Fox News on Friday that four men from his hometown of Rastan – a small, ancient city and anti-Assad bulwark in the Homs governate – were slain on the battlefield this week. One was a relative, Kinan Ferzat, a 35-year-old major in the Turkey-backed Free Syria Army (FSA) unit known as the Syrian National Army. "Kinan defected from the Syrian regime army in 2012 and joined the Free Syrian Army (FSA) within the First Corps faction as an Artillery Brigade leader, the military," his family member said. "In 2018, he refused the reconciliation with the regime and was deported to northern Syria, like the other defected military officers. Kinan had two options, either he would go to Idlib and join the Islamic and terrorist organizations, or he would go to Afrin and join the Turkish National Army." He chose to go to Afrin and joined the Sultan Murad faction, which operates under the Turkish Army, the relative continued, claiming that he was approached to go to Azerbaijan and feared refusing – traveling from Gaziantep airport and on to Istanbul, and then into Azerbaijan.

"This has been heartbreaking news for the family," the relative avowed. "We are revolutionaries and have our cause; we don't want to be international mercenaries." Nonetheless, French President Emmanuel Macron gave credence to the claims last week, announcing that he had evidence that fighters had indeed traveled through the Turkish city of Gaziantep en route to the South Caucasus conflict, which has already killed more than 200 people since it was re-ignited last month.

"We have information today that indicates with certainty that Syrian fighters from jihadist groups have transited through Gaziantep to reach the theater of operations in Nagorno-Karabakh," Macron proclaimed as he arrived for a summit with the European Union leaders in Brussels. "This is a very grave new development." A spokesperson for the Armenian Embassy in Washington further stressed in a statement to Fox News that "Jihadi terrorists are transferred from Syria by Turkey to Azerbaijan to fight Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh."

Adding to the woes of a brewing proxy war, Russia's Foreign Ministry – an Armenia military and diplomatic ally – also said in a statement this week that it had been informed of "illegal armed units" sent from Syria and Libya to the region.

ARMENIA, AZERBAIJAN FIGHTING KILLS DOZENS AS TENSIONS MOUNT IN DECADES-OLD CONFLICT

Fox News could not independently confirm the alleged travel route or battlefield death, and both Azerbaijan and Turkish officials have adamantly denied that any such Syrian national has been in the former Soviet war theater this week. "The reports about some mysterious Syrian fighters in Azerbaijan is a complete and absolute falsehood. There is not a shred of credible evidence of that. This is a clear effort to conduct Soviet-style propaganda warfare by the Armenian side, which is trying to cover its own ties to terrorists and distract attention from the fact of illegal occupation of the Azerbaijani lands," a statement issued to Fox News from the Azerbaijan Embassy in Washington. "Such fake news info warfare effort has become a new battleground and carries serious consequences. I hope that the media will make a more thorough fact-checking effort in the future."

Nonetheless, the Syrian relative also showed photos pertaining to the identities of three other men – in their 20's and 30's, supposedly belonging to the FSA and hailing from Rastan – alleged to have died this week.

It remains unclear how many Syrian nationals may have died in this week's skirmishes, with a Washington Post report on Friday projecting that the figure could be at least 20.

Moreover, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed that more than 300 Syrian fighters had been deployed to Azerbaijan. "These Syrian fighters come from two ethnic Turkmen armed groups, including the Sultan Murad Division and the Suleyman Shah Brigade," Rami Abdulrahman, director of the Syrian Observatory, told VOA.

ASSAD'S FUTURE AND THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR COULD HINGE ON THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Reports have indicated that the fighters are offered upwards of $1,500 a month for the work abroad, a handsome sum after years of internal war and poverty.

Omer Celik, a spokesperson for President Erdogan's ruling AKP, tweeted that the accusations were mere "lies and a provocation against Turkey." "Similarly untrue are reports on Turkish military involvement in the war," the statement continued. "Instead, a more serious concern should be the threat posed by Syrian and Lebanese groups fighting on the Armenian side, Armenian military contingent supporting official Damascus in the Syrian civil war and the presence of the Armenian terrorists trained in the Bekaa Valley to attack Israel." Ankara has also this week accused Armenia of sending Syrian and Iraqi Kurdish militants the PKK – its longtime foe due to decades of violence amid a separatist push – to the beleaguered border, but no further evidence has been provided.

Given the vast spattering of tit-for-tat accusations and claims of foreign fighting footprints, international observers have expressed apprehension that the long-frozen and largely unresolved territorial dispute could have wide-reaching implications.

AZERBAIJAN, ARMENIA FIGHT OVER DISPUTED REGION AS TANKS DESTROYED, HELICOPTERS SHOT DOWN

The Nagorno-Karabakh has been a source for skirmishes since the 1994 ceasefire between the two former Soviet nations. The terrain technically rests in Azerbaijan, as per international law, but it is generally defined as being controlled and populated by the ethnic Armenians -- with Armenia's support to run its affairs independently from Baku, the Azerbaijan capital since the Soviet Union fell almost three decades ago. The prized parcel – rich in minerals, mulberry groves, and alpine meadows – is a point of patriotic pride for both the Muslim majority Azerbaijan and Christian-dominant Armenia.

The OSCE Minsk Group – co-chaired by France, Russia, and the US – was established in 1992 in a bid to find an amicable solution. While a ceasefire was declared two years later, the dispute remains – punctured by fierce flareups – such as the current one, involving air power, missiles, and heavy armor.

Sliding toward pedophilia: How the sexual revolution progresses

By John Stonestreet and Maria Baer

Each chapter of the sexual revolution has featured an updated version of the same myth: “Don’t worry, the kids will be fine.” Sex with anyone anywhere? The kids will be fine. Separate marriage from procreation? The kids will be fine. No-fault divorce? The kids will be fine. Graphic sex education in schools beginning in kindergarten? The kids will be fine. Same-sex marriages eliminating either a mom or a dad from the picture? The kids will be fine.

They weren’t.

Growing up in families without married parents, their well-being sacrificed for the sake of adult happiness, the kids have been the primary victims of our sexual experimentation. To cover our tracks, we’ve resorted to indoctrination, attempting to convince them of other myths, such as the idea that biological sex and their physical bodies are fully malleable. Kids today are literally taught to be skeptical of how they were made. The kids are not fine. They’ve never been fine, in fact, not throughout this entire history of sexual redefinition. And I’m afraid, that the next chapter just began.

Even before Netflix released “Cuties,” that French movie about an 11-year-old girl who joins a twerking dance group to escape her conservative Muslim family, it received wide-spread backlash. Many critics, including all of us here at the Colson Center, were horrified to think that a movie featuring pornographic footage of very young actresses would be permitted to air. But it was.

Even worse, once the director wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post attempting to explain her intentions, she and her film have been defended in mainstream media outlets such as the Washington Post and on NPR. She was warning us about the sexualization of children through online technology, we were scolded, even if in the process, she sexualized actual children. The lead character, who is sexualized throughout the film, is played by an actual 11-year-old girl.

At the risk of sounding like the old man who yells “get off my lawn” to the enlightened minds at NPR, no 11-year old girl should be sexualized for any reason. Their defense of this film makes me think we’ve entered new territory.

Every stage of the sexual revolution has progressed the same way. A morally questionable activity enters our culture, not through moral argument, but through the imagination, typically via entertainment or some form of “artistic expression.” I’m old enough to remember how controversial “Beverly Hills 90210” was, as it skirted the edge of our cultural moral boundaries, depicting teenagers talking about sex but never actually doing it. In the end, the characters mostly came down on the right side of the moral question, but not because of any appeal to a stable moral framework. Rather, the teens just “weren’t ready to take that step.” Just a few years later, say, on an episode of “Friends,” the teenager is having sex, with a teacher even. This time, it’s supposed to be funny. Before long, it’s “Glee”, and the teens aren’t just talking anymore. They’re doing, and they’re in Ohio, not LA. (We could trace the history of homosexuality from the “not that there’s anything wrong with that” days of “Seinfeld” to “Will and Grace” to “Modern Family.”) At the end of “Cuties,” I’m told, the lead character leaves behind her twerking dance crew and returns to her conservative family. Her decision, of course, does not come from any moral framework, much less a condemnation of the pedophilia the film both portrays and commits.

The crisis is resolved through some weak notion like “self-discovery,” or “being true to yourself.” This means that in the next “Cuties” (and there will be a next one), the ending will be different. Maybe her fundamentalist parents learn to flex a little bit. Maybe in the one after that, she doesn’t go home at all. Before long, none of us are alarmed by pornographic portrayals of children.

What happened with sexual promiscuity, adultery, homosexuality, and currently, with transgenderism is happening with kids. We’ve already told them to determine their sexual identities. At the same time, the only ground left sexual morality is the flimsy notion of “consent.” Is it that much of a leap, really, from here to kids self-determining sexual behavior?

Just two weeks ago, California’s Governor signed a bill legally downgrading homosexual activity between an adult and a minor 14 or over, as long as there’s less than a 10-year age gap between the two and “consent” was given. Lawmakers said the bill was necessary for the equality of LGBT people, because heterosexual sex between a minor and an adult has already been decriminalized along the same lines.

I hate to say this, but the train of pedophilia has left the station. The kids definitely won’t be fine.

Note: The original version of this commentary stated that California’s new law decriminalized homosexual activity between an adult and a minor 14 and older, as long as there’s less than a 10-year age gap between the two and “consent” was given. The California law we referred to, SB 145, does not fully decriminalize the activity but allows judicial discretion as to whether the offender should be added to the sex offender registry. Sexual conduct between adults and minors is still illegal in California. We remain concerned about lessening the restrictions on offenders, but we regret any misunderstanding caused by our error.” Originally posted at breakpoint.org

Palestinians Yet Again Miss an Opportunity

By Micah Halpern Thursday, 01 October 2020 12:33 PM

Abba Eban served in many governmental positions in the early years after the creation of the State of Israel. Eban was an eloquent speaker, a brilliant diplomat and a gentleman and scholar. He served as both Israel's ambassador to the United States and to the United Nations at the very same time.

Abba Eban brilliantly observed that "Palestinians never miss an opportunity – to miss an opportunity."

His words and keen observation especially reverberate today.

The Palestinians were scheduled to chair the Arab League meetings for the next six months. The position rotates every half year. Instead of assuming the position, they resigned the chairmanship.

They resigned because they, Palestinians, had failed to convince the Arab League to condemn the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain for committing to peace treaties with Israel. The Palestinians claim that these treaties, created between the Jewish State and their fellow Arab nations, were an abandonment of the long-held agreement among Arab countries not to recognize Israel.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki held a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah to inform the Palestinian public and the world that they were resigning the chairmanship. He said: "Palestine has decided to concede its right to chair the League's Council (of foreign ministers) at its current session. There is no honor in seeing Arabs rush towards normalization during its presidency."

Maliki then read from a letter he sent to Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit informing him of the Palestinian move and criticizing the UAE and Bahrain, both Gulf Arab nations.

In his letter Maliki wrote that peace deals with Israel "created a deep crisis in the Arab League." Obviously, in the year 2020, the Palestinians stand almost alone in their thinking.

It was a typical Palestinian response. Hurt yourselves in the hope that by hurting yourself, people will take notice. That people will feel your pain.

It was a valiant, even if misguided, effort by the Palestinians to, diplomatically speaking, dis Israel. They attempted to pass a resolution within the Arab League condemning the UAE and Bahrain's normalization agreements with Israel. And they failed. When the Gulf States gained the support of the Arab League because of the treaties they signed, the Palestinians were dealt a huge blow.

Instead of moving on, they took a big – and very predictable, step backward. For years Palestinians thought they could set the tone for all Arab interaction with Israel. They have not succeeded, and they have not learned their lesson.

The Palestinian claim that they cannot participate in a movement to normalize relations with Israel until an agreement is in place. That process of creating an agreement is called normalization. But they have rejected and continue to reject the process.

They say that they will not participate in a process that causes their destruction. They say that Arab League support of the normalization is akin to Palestinian suicide. That explains the reasoning behind their resignation of the Arab League chairmanship.

What the Palestinians do not understand is that through the position of chair, they could bring important attention to their story and agenda and even help guide the process of normalization. The Arab League is composed of a hefty 22 nations. Instead, they identified it as a loss and walked away.

But Palestinian leadership cannot be swayed.

Even money has not persuaded PA leadership to budge from their childish stance. And large parts of the Arab world, including the seven Gulf Aran states, are throwing up their hands in despair over the behavior and decision-making of Palestinian leaders. Gulf money donations to the Palestinians has virtually dried up. In the first seven months of 2019 the PA received $267 million in donations. This year that number has shrunk to a tiny $38 million, a 80% drop in funding.

If $230 million dollars could not and does not influence Palestinian leadership's attitude, I do not know what will.

The UAE's UN ambassador met with the Israeli UN ambassador this week. Her name is Lana Nusseibeh and she is a woman of Palestinian decent. Educated in England with a masters degree in Jewish and Israeli Diaspora Affairs, Nusseibeh is from a prestigious Palestinian family. Decades ago, her father fell out of favor with Palestinian leadership over their direction.

The Arab world is leaving the Palestinians to flounder on their own. Arab nations are forming alliances with Israel on almost every level. Politically, economically and even in the world of the great equalizer – sports. Dubai has just signed Israeli soccer player Dia Saba to play for the UAE professional soccer team.

Abba Eban also said that "nations behave wisely once they have exhausted all other alternatives."

This is the nature of normalization. The Palestinians are missing great opportunities! Again! And again!

Biden Family Treason Inc.

Bombshell Senate report on Hunter Biden and Ukraine finds conflicts of interest, national security dangers, pay-to-play extortion, and alleged sex trafficking involvement

Shanghai Joe isn’t very happy with the recent Senate report detailing his family’s involvement in a myriad of conflicts of interest endangering national security, pay to play extortion, and alleged sex trafficking involvement.

Of course, Joe Biden follows the same playbook as Hillary Clinton and the rest of the corrupt establishment class: Deny everything until the world forgets. But Biden’s pursuit of the highest office on the globe also makes him a prime target. And Biden has a lot of skeletons, demons actually, in his closet. The establishment left Washington Post reported, “GOP senators’ report calls Hunter Biden’s board position with Ukraine firm ‘problematic,’ but fails to show how it changed U.S. policy.” The Biden scam may not have directly affected U.S. policy, but it absolutely affected Ukrainian national policy.

As the report reads, “The 2014 protests in Kyiv cam to be known as the Revolution of Dignity—a revolution against corruption in Ukraine. Following that revolution, Ukrainian political figures were desperate for U.S. support. Zlochevsky would have made sure relevant Ukrainian officials were well aware of Hunter’s appointment to Burisma’s board as leverage. Hunter Biden’s position on the board created an immediate potential conflict of interest that would prove to be problematic for both U.S. and Ukrainian officials and would affect the implementation of Ukraine policy.”

Take part in the ultimate win-win deals on the web by checking out the Infowars Store now!

To label Hunter’s involvement problematic insults the intelligence of Americans. Hunter Biden made Benedict Arnold look like an amateur.

In the Ukraine scandal, VP Joe Biden, the point man in Ukraine cleared the way for his drug addled demonic son Hunter to rake in $50,000 per month to sit on the corrupt Ukrainian Energy company Burisma Holdings’ board, despite zero experience in the industry. Hunter had joined a month after British officials seized $23 million from the London bank accounts of Burisma’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky.

Using his position, Joe Biden also cleared the way for Hunter in China. Hunter was courted by the Chinese Communist Government, its military and a host of shady companies to become a trojan horse in to the United States rare earth minerals market, nuclear secrets, and military technology.

While the Obama/Biden Administration played the role of playing hardball with the Chinese, Hunter was nailing down billion dollar deals for the Chinese military that compromised U.S. national security.

And as it has always played out for Hunter, the only reason Hunter isn’t sitting in prison right now is because his name ends with Biden.

James Corbett: THIS Is The Battle For Humanity! – The Technocratic Enslavement END GAME!

September 23, 2020 by IWB

Josh Sigurdson talks with James Corbett of The Corbett Report about the heightened level of tyranny throughout the world creating a sort of prison planet over the course of 2020.

With the excuse of an illness, the governments of the world have managed to use a crisis to their extreme benefit and to the absolute servitude of the public. Was this thing created in a lab? Regardless of whether it was or wasn’t, how’s it being used against the public? What is the ultimate end game? James digs deep into the technocratic global government being created, influenced heavily by China and utilizing the crisis to install social credit tied to bank accounts.

This is THE battle for humanity as James points out. This is extraordinarily important and cannot be disregarded.

With social credit scores tied to medical tyranny, if we don’t act now, we may be done forever. Time is running out.

Will the Planned Coronavirus Second Wave Take Root With the Election Chaos and Nationwide Riots as Distractions?

September 28, 2020 by Gary D. Barnett, Lew Rockwell:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

~ C. S. Lewis, Article – “The Humanitarian Theory of Punishment”. (1949)

What in the world lies ahead? We are in the midst of the most incredible attempt by the powerful to take over humanity that has ever happened on earth. These times will determine our fate, as the controllers and enforcers are on a mission to complete the task of total population control without delay. This is always the desire of tyrants, but nothing of this scale or magnitude has ever been attempted, but now this Covid false flag event has caused the possibility of world domination by the few to be dangerously close to being attained. This is our dilemma, and there is little time to reverse this course we are on today. What will the people decide?

Those at the helm of this plot have over and over again warned of what is to come. This has been done as a method of preparedness in order to plant in the minds of the masses the idea that viral terror is imminent, and that only the state can save us from this deadly scourge. This of course is a lie, but with proper conditioning, most have succumbed to the possibility, and therefore are ripe for the coming propaganda. This is simply a brainwashing scheme, and there is nothing new about this technique used to dampen critical thinking by instilling fear among the herd. But in this case, the result could be deadly.

In order to bolster the absurd idea that a minor claimed flu-like illness would threaten the country’s destruction, major distractions meant to confuse and spread additional fear have been carefully planned, and are being put into place at the identical time of the arrival of the coming flu season. This of course was no accident, as multiple false flags will be used simultaneously in order to cause mass confusion. All that was necessary to initiate these events was to purposely cause more division among the general public, and to then allow the chaotic violence to continue without state interference.

This began with the effort by the political class and its media to inundate the public with news that would stoke racial unrest, and pit black against white. All that was necessary was to make false claims of murder by a white policeman against a black person, and then saturate the national airwaves with the specific intent to stoke hate. Once that was accomplished, setting up, supporting, and releasing criminal gangs like the ‘Black Lives Matter’ thugs and their Marxist counterparts called Antifa on the streets of American cities was allowed. In my opinion, this was purposely staged and authorized by the controllers, and these despicable hordes were then able to riot, loot, destroy property, and commit widespread acts of violence without resistance by the police, as most state enforcers were ordered to stand down.

The Perversion of Science to Clear the Way for the Imposition of Compulsory Vaccines

Prof. Anthony J. Hall

9-24-20

The quest to claim the prestige of science is one of the major themes accompanying the rush of the rich and powerful to seize more wealth and political clout during the so-called “great reset” presently underway. Much controversy has surrounded the use of hydroxychloroquine as a cheap and readily available remedy for COVID-19.

Hydroxychloroquine is a well-known medicine used to treat many ailments. When properly administered along with zinc, hydroxychloroquine represents a threat to the agendas being pushed forward by Bill Gates and Big Pharma. Many powerful interests have a significant stake in imposing a compulsory vaccine on humanity as the universalized remedy for the much-exaggerated incursions of COVID-19.

Some of those plotting to advance the vaccine agenda sought to sideline the adoption of hydroxychloroquine as the main remedy for COVID-19. They resorted to..... READ MORE:

Chitin could be used to build tools and habitats on Mars, study finds

The manufacturing process would require minimal energy and no specialized equipment.

Jennifer Ouellette - 9/22/2020, 6:18 PM

Space aficionados who dream of one day colonizing Mars must grapple with the stark reality of the planet's limited natural resources, particularly when it comes to building materials. A team of scientists from the Singapore University of Technology and Design discovered that, using simple chemistry, the organic polymer chitin—contained in the exoskeletons of insects and crustaceans—can easily be transformed into a viable building material for basic tools and habitats. This would require minimal energy and no need for transporting specialized equipment. The scientists described their experiments in a recent paper published in the journal PLOS ONE.

"The technology was originally developed to create circular ecosystems in urban environments," said co-author Javier Fernandez. "But due to its efficiency, it is also the most efficient and scalable method to produce materials in a closed artificial ecosystem in the extremely scarce environment of a lifeless planet or satellite."

As we previously reported, NASA has announced an ambitious plan to return American astronauts to the Moon and establish a permanent base there, with an eye toward eventually placing astronauts on Mars. Materials science will be crucial to the Artemis Moon Program's success, particularly when it comes to the materials needed to construct a viable lunar (or Martian) base. Concrete, for instance, requires a substantial amount of added water in order to be usable in situ, and there is a pronounced short supply of water on both the Moon and Mars. And transport costs would be prohibitively high. NASA estimates that it costs around $10,000 to transport just one pound of material into orbit. So there has been much attention on the possibility of using existing materials on the Moon itself to construct a lunar base. Past proposals have called for 3D-printing with Sorel cement, which requires significant amounts of chemicals and water (consumables), and a rocklike material that would require both water and phosphoric acid as a liquid binder. And back in March, a paper by an international team of scientists suggested that astronauts setting up a base on the Moon could use the urea in their urine as a plasticizer to create a concrete-like building material out of lunar soil.

As with the Moon, any plan to set up a habitable base on Mars must employ manufacturing technologies that make use of the Red Planet's regolith. But the authors of the current paper point out that most terrestrial manufacturing strategies that could fit the bill typically require specialized equipment and a hefty amount of energy. However, "Nature presents successful strategies of life adapting to harsh environments," the authors wrote. "In biological organisms, rigid structures are formed by integrating inorganic filler proceed from the environment at a low energy cost (e.g., calcium carbonate) and incorporated into an organic matrix (e.g., chitin) produced at a relatively high metabolic cost." Fernandez and his colleagues maintain that chitin is likely to be part of any planned artificial ecosystem because it is so plentiful in nature. It's the primary component of fish scales and fungal cell walls, for example, as well as the exoskeletons of crustaceans and insects. In fact, insects have already been targeted as a key source of protein for a possible Martian base. And since the chitin component of insects has limited nutritional value for humans, extracting it to make building materials "does not hamper or compete with the food supply," the authors wrote. "Rather, it is a byproduct of it."

For their experiments, the researchers relied on fairly simple chemistry. They took chitosan derived from shrimp, dissolved it in acetic acid—a common byproduct of both aerobic and anaerobic fermentation—and combined it with a mineral equivalent to Martian soil to create their chitinous building material. They tested its properties by fashioning various objects out of it, most notably a functional wrench, which they tested by tightening a hexagonal bolt. While acknowledging that this would be unlikely to replace metallic tools for certain critical space applications, it proved hardy enough to sustain sufficient torque for small daily tasks.   Think bigger

Next, the team tried molding the material into various geometries to study its potential as a building material via additive manufacturing, ranging from cylinders and cubes to objects with both rounded and angular shapes—including a little humanoid Martian figure. The scientists also demonstrated that the biolith could be used as makeshift mortar to effectively plug a small hole in a pipe. The pipe subsequently went several weeks without leakage. Finally, they built a full 3D-printed model of one possible design for a Martian habitat; it took just under two hours to complete. The researchers concluded that their results demonstrated the feasibility of such "closed-loop, zero-waste" solutions on Mars.

"Bioinspired manufacturing and sustainable materials are not a substituting technology for synthetic polymers, but an enabling technology defining a new paradigm in manufacturing, and allowing to do things that are unachievable by the synthetic counterparts," said Fernandez.

Grocers Begin to Stockpile and Build ‘Pandemic Pallets’ To Prepare For Winter Surge of COVID Cases

Sep 27, 2020

(ETH) – Grocery stores and food companies are reportedly preparing for what could be a coming increase in sales amid a new rise in Covid-19 cases and the coming Holidays.

According to the Wallstreet Journal, Supermarkets have already begun stockpiling groceries and storing them early to prepare for the coming fall and winter months, when some health experts are now warning the country could possibly face another widespread outbreak of coronavirus cases and new restrictions. The report went on to state that Food companies have already begun accelerating production of their most popular items, and leaders across the industry are indicating that they will not be caught unprepared in the face of such an event. The report comes as New York cases have now topped one thousand for the first time since early June and New U.S. cases have reportedly crept above the pace of recent days.

According to MSN News, Amid a surge in the Midwest, Minnesota has surpassed 2,000 deaths as Wisconsin and South Dakota reached a record number of cases and North Dakota just posted its second-highest number of cases as hospitals warned they were filling up. A new report from Reuters is stating that the number of tests returning positive for COVID-19 is topping 25% in several states across the U.S. Midwest as cases and hospitalizations also surge in the region.

As Australia Falls to the CHICOMS, America Loses Another Key Ally

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Monday, September 28, 2020 - 14:19.

China is in the process of controlling and controlling multiple nations. They are focusing on American allies who are done with America because China controls them. Here are few examples of how China is now in control of Australia.

Just as the American southern border is under attack, so it in Australia. The Chinese invasion is threatening the Australian culture, education system and is moving into the political arena. The resulting chaos has largely been ignored by the government, until recently.

I received the following email from a resident of Australia about her concerns with the Chinese invasion of her community and their subsequent behaviors.

Hi Dave

I'm on the Gold Coast in Queensland, in the Hinterland area on the outskirts of the Gold Coast. I heard about you a few years ago when I began homeschooling my two girls (now 9 and 12 years old). A friend (who also homeschools and is also Christian) had me over one day and I was talking to her husband. He woke me up to what is going on in the world and the times we are in and put me on to your show. I am very grateful for that and for what you do, have been listening ever since. He has been prepped for years.

It was my eldest daughter who mentioned yesterday "mum, I noticed signs on the shelves in Woolies, one in English and one in Chinese writing saying only two baby formula cans per customer" (or something similar) and she wondered why. She is aware because a few months ago we noticed a lot of pet food, dog and cat, wasn't available for weeks angering customers and we have cats. I sent an email about that awhile ago which you may find if you search my email. If not let me know and I can resend...

Anyway, I send information to you because I don't know anyone informative with as much influence...or anyone at all in Australia. I go to your channel/website to keep up to date with what is going on. Thanks so much, sorry it's a bit long-winded Thanks,

Samantha D.

Is this story true? Is Samantha accurate in her account? The answer is an emphatic yes! Channel 7 in Samantha’s area ran a story which completely confirms Samantha's account. In order to view the news report, please click this link to view the report.

Please note that the cameraman tried to not show the faces of the people hording the bottles of baby formula. However, when we could see faces, they were all Chinese. I began to ask questions and subsequently queried one of my deep cover insider sources as to why the Chinese would be hording things like pet food and baby formula. My source said I was asking the wrong question. He said I should be asking what the Chinese immigrants to Australia know that the Australians don’t know, but should. I will come back to this question later in this report The Chinese Are Invading Australian Universities

After years of mindlessly following the UN Migration Pact in which the Australian government completely capitulated to unrestricted Chinese immigration, just like the Democrats want America to do with millions of Latin Americans trying to cross our southern border. the government thought they were getting cheap labor and a docile population that would be easy to control. That has not proven to be the case. And now, at the highest levels of the Australian government, they are publicly questioning the wisdom of giving Chinese nations unfettered access to their institutions of higher learning. Before watching this report, it should be noted that if one is taking over any culture, taking control of the education system is one of the first places to begin. The Chinese Invasion of Australia Is Aimed At the Undermining the Culture

Why would a Western nation, primarily Christian admit people from a culture who hold the beliefs of the Australian culture in such disregard. Please read the following account about how Chinese children are being trained to hate Christianity.

Children in China’s primary schools are now being taught that belief in God is abnormal and that parents who are religious should not be trusted, according to a report out of the country.

The new direction is part of the country’s crackdown on Christianity under the New Regulations of Religious Affairs that took effect in February 2018, according to Bitter Winter, a religious liberty watchdog.

Even before the last was passed, government leaders viewed religion with skepticism. The crackdown intensified with the new law and impacted what is taught in schools, beginning in kindergarten.

Before starting school, I told my child about God’s creation, and he believed it. But after being taught at school, my child is like a different person. In atheistic China, these pure and innocent children have been taught to hate God,” a Christian mother told Bitter Winter.

Essentially, schools are grooming children to be atheists, teaching them that religion is “Xie jiao,” a Chinese expression that references anything that is heterodox and should not be trusted. Children are “taught to oppose their religious relatives” and that “believing in God is abnormal,” Bitter Winter reported.

The son reportedly told his Christian mom, “My teacher says that Christianity is a Xie jiao. If you believe in it, you will leave home and not take care of me. You might set yourself on fire, too.” The school textbook, Morality and Society, teaches children to resist Xie jiao religious groups. Bitter Winter included pictures from the book.

“The teacher told us during class that Xie jiao groups are so terrible,” the boy said....

Could it be any more clear than this? These kind of immigrants do not assimilate, they impose their will on the native population and we are finding, that when it comes to Australia, this is the case.

We are also witnessing the Chinese taking center stage in Australian politics as the pro-China and pro-Hong Kong Chinese are fighting each other on the streets of Australia BUT WAIT, THE WORST IS YET TO COME! CHINA OWNS AUSTRALIAN PORTS AND INFRASTRUCTURE

The loss of Australi as an American ally would prove devastating. In a war against China,therewould nothing

From the Daily Mail

China is buying up Australian land, infrastructure and businesses at an alarming rate as it seeks to project power and influence beyond its shores.

The communist nation of 1.4billion people owns an airport in Western Australia, nine million hectares of Australian land, several Aussie coalmines and wind farms and even the Port of Darwin, a key strategic asset.

China is also the largest foreign owner of Australian water and has projected soft power Down Under by planting Communist Party-approved Mandarin teachers in schools and universities. most are aware of the Chinese government’s belt and road economic initiative, awhich began in 2013. The purpose was to establish maritime trade routes across the globe. However, there is a covert and very disturbing aspect of this initiative. This Chinese strategy invests in infrastructure projects, though oans in dozens of countries on multiple continents. The projects include pipelines, ports, railways and other major infrastructure projects. All of these projects cost big money and when the host country defaults, and they almost always do, China owns the country. This practice is in practice in modern-day Australia and the Prime Minister has sold out his country, much like the Democratic Party is doing in America, today.

Last year, Chinese media reported 170 memoranda of understanding had been signed with 125 countries. THIS IS HOW CHINA IS STRIPPING AWAY ITS AMERICAN ALLIES.

From the Guardian

In 2018, premier Daniel Andrews signed a memorandum of understanding with China’s national development and reform commission to work together on belt and road initiatives.

At the time, Andrews said the agreement was aimed at his massive state infrastructure program.

“With the biggest infrastructure program in our state’s history under way, we have the design and delivery skills China is looking for, meaning more jobs and more trade and investment for Victorians,” he said.

In four years we have more than tripled Victoria’s share of Chinese investment in Australia and nearly doubled our exports to China. We said we’d reboot our relationship with China and we’re getting it done.”

It is clear that Australia is going the way of Chile and Ecuador, not to mention South Aftica. Conclusion

Militarily, the loss of Australia is catastrophic. The loss of Australia as a secondary base of operations for land and sea forces would be devastating for America should we decide to prosecute a war in the Asian theater.

The Chinese population has grown to 1.5 million in China and they are prepping for something big. The Australians need to wake up to the growing threat that is right under their nose.

Now, back to Samantha's account of the hording of baby formula and pet food. Why does anyone ever horde something? It is because they are anticipating a shortage caused by an external event. Something big is happening in Australia just as it is in America. I will be exploring the American side of this invasion in a future article. But the fact that this is happening in more than one country, speaks to the fact that the globalists are behind this.

To conclude, we have all seen the horrid images of unreasonable and extremely brutal law enforcement techniques being practiced in Melbourne. In the opinoin of this write, they are locking the country down in anticipation of a Chinese-takeover which will be nothing short of brutal and perhaps, eventually, genocidal, because the Chinese do not believe in co-occupancy.

Can you not see that the same thing is happening here in America

Further reports of conflicts between Azerbaijan and Armenia

BREAKING NEWS: HEAVY FIGHTING - AZERBAIJAN PARLIAMENT DECLARES WAR ON ARMENIA

Hal Turner, 27 September, 2020

BREAKING NEWS - 12:58 PM EDT -- Russia Issues Mobilization Notice; Sending VDV (Airborne) Troops to Armenia Conflict Zone

12:12 PM EDT: Azerbaijan's Parliament declares state of war, announces military mobilization, martial law and curfew in several regions amid clashes with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh

Armenia blames Azerbaijan for attacks on civilian settlements in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, and says its troops downed two Azerbaijani helicopters and three drones in response. When this took place, Azerbaijan fought back and now, there is very heavy fighting between the two countries.

President of Azerbaijan set to address the nation shortly according to reports.

Artsakh, officially the Republic of Artsakh or the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, is a breakaway state in the South Caucasus that is internationally recognized as a part of Azerbaijan.

There are now reports that Martial Law has been declared there.

Strangely, the head of the Armenian Defense Ministry David Tonoyan has reportedly fled the country. This reports were published against the background of the full-scale renewal of the Karabakh war with Azerbaijan by the Armenian troops.

It is not yet known whether Tonoyan fled from Armenia before the outbreak of hostilities or during the first shelling of Azerbaijani villages, as a result of which Azerbaijani citizens were killed and wounded.

Russia calls on Armenia and Azerbaijan to end escalations and begin talks as #zerbaijan announces it has the full support of Turkey.

To give readers perspective on what's at stake, here is a map of the region. The area in Red is disputed territory between the two countries. Hal Turner Remark: The media reports coming out of this area are rife with inaccuracies and blame from both sides. It is said that "truth is the first casualty of war" and in this case, it sure seems that way. For all the information coming out right now, it is VERY hard for me to determine who did what to whom, first, and why. Reporting this conflict is NOT going to be easy from a factual standpoint. I must cvonfess that since Azerbaijan has the full support of Turkey, it appears TO ME that they are already in the wrong. I don't trust Turkey as far as I can throw it and anyone connected with the Turks are therefore viewed badly by me.

UPDATE 11:12 AM EDT --

The Prime Minister of Armenia calls on citizens to prepare to 'defend the sacred homeland.' General mobilization and martial law declared.

The general con census coming out of the region is that, supported by Turkey, Azerbaijan has just started a war against Armenia in-order to occupy Artsakh/NagornoKarabakh. For now, Azerbaijan has lost a Mi-8 transport helicopter, a Mi-24 heavy attack helicopter, 3 UAVs & over 20 Syrian mercenaries! However, Turkish Defense Minister Akar says: "Armenia attacked Azerbaijan with a violation of the ceasefire and again showed that it was after a provocation. The biggest obstacle to peace and stability in the Caucasus is the aggressive attitude of Armenia and it must immediately cease this aggression that will set the region on fire.

Hal Turner Remark: This is dangerous. We are heading towards Russia vs Turkey in very short span of time. (Both will have to protect their sides).

UPDATE 11:30 AM EDT --

Another helicopter from Azerbaijan has been shot down:

Massive reinforcements have been sent by Armenia, including rocket launchers to the front line with Azerbaijan as a open war begins.

In a dramatic and extremely dangerous escalation, Turkey has sent a military drone deep into Armenian territory.

The drone has not fired, but even if it is only Intel, the fact that Turkey is doing this against an ally of Russia brings this new conflict into sharp perspective. This "war" is growing, fast.

FYI: Armenia is 97% christian while Azerbaijan is 95%+ Muslim.

UPDATE 11:58 AM EDT --

Azerbaijan is cutting-off the Internet, to block information getting out to the world:

All .gov.az also websites are down including mod.gov.az and edu.gov.az

The Defense Army of Artsakh reports that the enemy has great losses of manpower and armor. The units of the Defense Army destroyed 4 enemy helicopters, about 15 UAVs, including strike, 10 tanks, and a combat vehicle.

UPDATE 12:06 PM EDT --

Russia has sent a heavy military transport to Armenia . . . this is direct military reinforcement of Armenia by Russia. This conflict is escalating so fast, heads are spinning.

The European Union (EU) on Sunday called for an immediate halt to border clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

"The European Union calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities, de-escalation and for strict observance of the cease-fire," EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said in a statement.

Deputy Minister of Defense of Nagorny Karabakh Artur Sarkisyan: 16 dead and about 100 injured on Armenian side to the moment

***** BULLETIN *****

BREAKING NEWS - 12:12 PM EDT: Azerbaijan's Parliament declares state of war, announces military mobilization, martial law and curfew in several regions amid clashes with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh

Reminder that Armenia is a member state of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) with Russia and 4 other countries. Article 4 of the CSTO states that an attack on a member state is an attack on all.

Armenia’s MoD says that Azerbaijan is now employing its largest caliber MLRS, including the Smerch, Belarusian Polonez and the T-300. This is serious. Armenia’s and Azeri MLRS have range 100KM+. This would mean that the strikes will take place deep in Armenia / AZB

***** BULLETIN *****

12:58 PM EDT -- Russia Issues Notice to world: "Deploying its VDV (Airborne) Troops to Armenia Conflict Zone"

This is a GIGANTIC escalation. Russia is stepping directly, openly, and forcefully, into the armed conflict. Russia knows Turkey backs Azerbaijan, and Russia is now openly sending its best troops to wage war against Azerbaijan in defense of Armenia. Direct, open conflict is now unavoidable between Turkey and Russia.

UPDATE 1:31 PM EDT --

Armenia

16 Armenians have been killed, 100+ injured

• State of emergency, general mobilization of the population declared

Azerbaijan:

• 7 villages captured from Armenia

• A state of war and curfews have been declared.

More . . .

According to verified reports Azerbaijan has about 200 casualties and more than 30 pieces of destroyed military hardware.

UPDATE 3:00 PM EDT --

UN chief calls for immediate end to fighting over Nagorny Karabakh

US condemns escalation of violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia, urges both sides to cease hostilities immediately

UPDATE 4:00 PM EDT --

This is 14-15 hours straight of combat , they probably are going to fight through the night , holding positions while reinforcements pull up and then we will see much more intense fighting at sun rise there in about 7-8 hours.

UPDATE 5:00 PM EDT --

AzTV reports live that heavy artillery fire exchange are still ongoing on LoC

Reports state that the entire nation of Azerbaijan is now under martial law amid major fighting with Armenia.

***** BULLETIN *****

COVERT INTEL

UPDATE 6:24 PM EDT -- Trainloads of troops are departing Russian military districts towards Armenia. According to in-country sources, at least three trainloads of Russian armed forces are departing from EACH of Russia's Central, Western, and Southern Military Districts.

This means tens-of-thousands of Russian troops are already on their way toward the conflict between Armenia (which Russia supports) and Azerbaijan (which Turkey supports).

Russian military aircraft are in the air in growing numbers. Specifically, transport planes moving large amounts of cargo are already landing in Armenia with supplies; but not just for Armenian troops. The supplies are allegedly being pre-positioned for RUssians that are already on the way.

Russian fighter jets and bombers are also in the air from farther regions in Russia, signaling the Russians intend to move significant war-fighting assets into Armenia very quickly.

This movement of troops by Russia is unprecedented in the speed at which the order was given, and the number of troops being moved. It __appears__ to intel sources the Russians intend to put an end to this before it mushrooms out of control . . . but point out that such a heavy-handed response could cause it to mushroom out of control anyway. Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

UPDATE 6:43 PM EDT --

Artsron Hovhannisyan, the spokesman for the Armenian Ministry of Defense, announced in a press briefing that Armenia will, if necessary, use all kinds of weapons in response to the aggression, including Su-30SM fighters.

In response to journalists’ question about the possibility of using fighters, Hovhannisyan indicated that the military and political leadership of Armenia is in complete control of the situation in the conflict zone in Nagorno-Karabakh, and “if necessary, all kinds of weapons will be used.”

They Want This Nightmare To Last Forever! Global Elite Pushing For Hard Lockdown Of Entire World As The ‘Demonic New World Order’ Warnings Of ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ Are Confirmed

September 28, 2020 by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

While for years we’ve been labeled as ‘conspiracy theorists’ for warning about a sinister plan long being carried out by ‘globalists’, including most Democrats, to ‘transform’ America into a ‘much less free’ country than our Founding Fathers had envisioned, as this new story over at the Washington Times warns, according to Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, we’ve been witnessing precisely that.

With Archbishop Vigano, who also previously took on Pope Francis, claiming he was covering up child sexual abuse in the Catholic church and should resign, showing us more courage than we’ve EVER seen from most US politicians by claiming that the 2020 elections will feature President Trump in a battle ‘against the demonic forces of the deep state’, as Vigano also warns, this election is nothing less than a battle of the ages and for all of history.

Warning that this election is nothing less than ‘a Biblical battle’ and that the results will end up being felt not only all across America but the entire world, how can Democrats and the mainstream media STILL DENY the very existence of this ‘shadowy group’ of ‘demonic forces’ that seeks to overthrow the US Constitution and bring in a totalitarian ‘new world order’, with so many signs all around us? We’ll take a look at more of those recent and accelerating signs below but first, from the Washington Times story (also saved over at Archive).

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò said the 2020 presidential election presents Americans with a “biblical” challenge “against the demonic forces of the deep state and against the New World Order.”

The Catholic Church’s former Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S. once again warned voters that warring principalities unseen to the human eye will clash on Election Day. The archbishop previously framed the political landscape to a battle between “the children of light and the children of darkness” in June.

“Presidential elections in November represent an epochal challenge, a biblical challenge, the outcome of which will be decisive not only for the United States of America but for the whole world,” he wrote in a letter offered, but not read, to Wednesday’s National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.

“It is necessary that all of you Catholics of America are well aware of the role that Providence has designed to entrust to your President, and that you are aware of the extraordinary battle that He is preparing to fight against the demonic forces of the deep state and against the New World Order,” the religious leader wrote. “I am at your side with fervent prayer, together with millions of Catholics and with all people of good will throughout the world.”

The archbishop also asserted that Mr. Trump is “the greatest defender of the supreme values of Christian civilization: of life, from conception to natural death; of the natural family composed of one man and one woman and children; and of love for the homeland: One Nation under God!”

Wednesday’s event also included Mr. Trump’s vow to sign the Born Alive executive order as a means of protecting babies that survive attempted abortions.

“Precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, [must] receive the medical care that they deserve,” Mr. Trump said. “This is our sacrosanct moral duty.”

And with many Democrats also framing this coming election as an existential battle that they must win, and leftists all across the country already suffering massive meltdowns proving that its already quite ugly and only about to get worse, with a Supreme Court battle ahead and the elections now just over 1 month away, BLM/antifa already burning down America NOW hints of what’s to come. Especially with many Democrats and the ‘global elite’ pushing for a ‘hard covid-19 lockdown’ of not only America but the entire world as we’ll look at more in the next section of this story below.

Senate Report Accuses Hunter Biden Of Paying For Hookers Who May Have Been Trafficked

September 23, 2020 By Tristan Justice

An earthshattering report released by Senate investigators Wednesday outlining the Biden family’s long list of conflicts of interest at the upper echelons of government unearthed new allegations of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son making multiple payments to Eastern European prostitutes.

According to the joint report out by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee with the Senate Treasury Committee, Hunter Biden made a number of payments to foreign nationals with “questionable backgrounds” consistent with “organized prostitution and/or human trafficking.” Records on file with the committee, the report says, “confirm that Hunter Biden sent thousands of dollars to individuals who have either: 1) been involved in transactions consistent with possible human trafficking; 2) an association with the adult entertainment industry; or 3) potential association with prostitution.”

The report continued, detailing that some transactions were Russian- and Ukrainian-linked to what “appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.”

This is not the first time Hunter Biden’s infidelity has promised headaches for his father’s 2020 presidential campaign.

In November last year, Page Six reported that an Arkansas woman who successfully sued the former vice president’s son for monthly child support was a stripper at a club Hunter Biden frequented. Hunter Biden, according to the paper, was a regular guest at the Mpire Club in Washington D.C.’s Dupont Circle, where Lunden Alexis Roberts, the mother of Biden’s baby, went by the name “Dallas” on stage.

“He was well-known,” one source told Page Six.

Since President Donald Trump’s sham impeachment proceedings last fall highlighted Hunter Biden’s questionable and possibly criminal overseas business activities, the notorious member of the Biden clan has maintained a low profile after intense scrutiny of the family’s conflicts of interest has plagued the Democratic nominee’s campaign.

Hunter Biden’s absence has sparked the internet meme, “Where’s Hunter?” It was briefly answered with a rare appearance at the Democratic Party’s virtual convention in August.

Validated 17.2 feet high storm surge destroyed everything from Louisiana residents during Hurricane Laura 

By Strange Sounds - Sep 27, 2020

After Hurricane Laura unleashed catastrophic storm surge on the coast of Louisiana, residents who stayed put say they will never again stay during a hurricane.

“Something that you experience one time and don’t do it again,” explained Kim Eagleson, a Grand Lake Resident. Never before has a Category 4 hurricane made landfall in southwestern Louisiana, making it the strongest storm on record by wind intensity for that part of the state. The monstrous storm packed maximum sustained winds of 150 mph and something most residents tend to underestimate — storm surge.

The storm surge rose to an astonishing 17.2 feet above ground level in Rutherford Beach, Louisiana, the National Weather Service in Lake Charles found.

To put that into perspective, that is almost as tall as an adult giraffe, or two times the official height to a basketball rim. AccuWeather National Reporter Jonathan Petramala revealed the damage left behind by the astounding storm surge and interviewed residents picking up the pieces after Laura’s rampage.

Laura took everything except just a little cement slab. Crumbled the fireplace, ain’t nothing left. There’s people in East Louisiana don’t realize how bad we have it here,” Grand Chenier Resident Chris Theriot told Petramala. Petramala reported people living in this area may not have running water or electricity until Thanksgiving or Christmas.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned residents of the looming threat the surge posed ahead of the storm.

Unsurvivable storm surge with large and destructive waves will cause catastrophic damage from Sea Rim State Park, Texas, to Intracoastal City, Louisiana, including Calcasieu and Sabine Lakes,” the NHC warned in a tweet before the storm made landfall, adding that the surge could extend up to 40 miles inland from the coastline. Along the coast, storm surge is often the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane, according to the NHC.

“Storm surge is the result of the water “piling” up as the storm center nears the coastline. It is predominantly caused by the force of the winds, cyclonically moving around the center of circulation, but is also contributed slightly due to falling pressure,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Rossio said.

“Storm surge is often the most dangerous and life-threatening occurrence caused by tropical cyclones, because people near the coast are often taken off guard with how quickly water can rise,” Rossio said. Storm surge strength and reach compares more to a river than a tide.

Rossio explained the surge can cause significant damage in its wake as well, leading to homes being either flooded or pulled into the sea as water recedes.

“It isn’t certain if this is a record for this area given lack of water measurement observations in this area, but it was likely very similar to what was seen with Hurricane Rita when it made landfall 15 years ago,” Rossio said.

Rita’s storm surge was estimated to be between 12 to 18 feet.

The State's Response To This "Virus" Is Nothing More Than A Weapon Of Mass Submission

by Tyler Durden  Sun, 09/27/2020 - 07:00

Authored by Gary Barnett via LewRockwell.com,

“The great masses of men, though theoretically free, are seen to submit supinely to oppression and exploitation of a hundred abhorrent sorts. Have they no means of resistance? Obviously they have. The worst tyrant, even under democratic plutocracy, has but one throat to slit. The moment the majority decided to overthrow him he would be overthrown. But the majority lacks the resolution; it cannot imagine taking the risks.”

~ H. L. Mencken (1926). “Notes on Democracy,” p. 50, Alfred A. Knopf

Draconian measures by the State against the masses require the cooperation of the masses. This is the essence of political submission, and therefore, it is the foundation of the ruling “elite’s” plan to achieve a complete global economic and total control reset. At this stage of the plot, all is going just as the globalists expected, as the takeover of the human population is well underway. Logic would dictate that this fake pandemic should be over for good after the new CDC death figures for the U.S. were recently exposed. That report showed that 94% of those said to have died from Covid alone did not die from Covid at all. In fact, the 94% that died who were claimed as Covid deaths had on average 2.6 other co-morbidities evident.

What that means is this entire virus scam was a fraud all along, and is being used as a weapon of submission in order to gain control over the entire population. Lies on top of lies have been used to frighten people into voluntarily destroying their lives in the name of false safety, and now the damage has reached levels that will be almost impossible to overcome at any time in the near or even distant future. One would think that with this ground shattering information, all citizens would be up in arms, but that does not seem to be the case. This is extremely troubling, as without a mass uprising of the people, this horrendous plan will continue to go forward.

It is now time to consider the possible tactics that will be used by the State against all of us, especially those that continue to question, and refuse to comply with the idiocy that is called a coronavirus pandemic. Hell is coming in the form of the ruling class and its pawns in government and their plan for a captured society. Is there really a devil, or have evil men seeking power created Satin in their own image in an attempt to take over the entire planet for themselves?

All the plans of these monsters are being telegraphed in advance, just as has always happened in the past. Creating a new Pearl Harbor has taken on a whole new meaning with this manufactured virus scare, but it will only get worse from here. It is imperative to understand that nothing happening is organic or natural; it has all been purposely designed to achieve a particular outcome. That outcome is total world domination by the few, and in order to be successful in this venture, the current economic system must be destroyed, and a new digital monetary system that can be monitored and controlled from the top must be created and implemented.

Even though the CDC released death numbers that completely contradict the mainstream narrative, and show that this pandemic is a fraud, it is still little reported, and it seems that many would pay no attention to this revelation even if it were reported more widely.

This alone shows the weakness and apathetic mindset that permeates the American populace today.

Considering the attitude of the masses, and the lack of reason and logic evident among the herd, what is coming should be obvious. The powerful will not relent so long as the people remain indifferent to their own existence. With that in mind, expect a wave of new and exaggerated fear mongering techniques. The more the people rebel, if at all, the stronger any response by the state apparatus will be. If enough question the validity of this virus pandemic, a new and more dangerous strain will magically emerge. If resistance continues to gain favor, then a new and possibly deadly biological agent could be released, although it would need to be isolated so as to not get out of hand and threaten those responsible for its distribution among the public. If the flu season, along with a very weakened immune response of the now compromised citizenry does not keep the people in check, the release of other toxic agents is not only possible in my opinion, but also probable.

There are many scenarios that could emerge depending on what the ruling and controlling classes deem necessary in order to gain and retain total control. Once the people are frightened enough, the new vaccine will be immediately introduced. It is my belief that this vaccine is already available, and is being held until fear is at such a high level that most will voluntarily line up for injection. If this happens, control over the people will have reached a stage that is irreversible due to multiple reasons. Any Covid vaccine will introduce several viruses into the human system, and in addition, many very dangerous and problematic toxins and harmful adjuvants. But that is only part of the risk, as there could be other unknown ingredients as well, and these could be a part of a covert plan not divulged to the recipients of any vaccine.

Just recently in this article from Steemit, it was announced that the FDA is nearing approval of a biochip implant that could be injected by use of a hydrogel solution. This is supposedly an implant to detect Covid by linking the human body and mind to a computer system, and could easily be a part of any vaccine. This is insanity, but is only the beginning of any number of body and mind altering artificial intelligence methods meant to produce a transhuman society that could be controlled through technocratic means.

Beware of any bio-terror attack blamed on an outside enemy, whether an individual, a third world country, or any mainstream claimed enemy of the U.S. such as China, Iran, or Russia. An attack of this nature now would most assuredly be from within this country, and perpetrated by internal forces to stoke more fear. That additional fear, and any bio-weapon release meant to look like a virus could be claimed to be the pre-planned second wave, and this alone would turn most of the country against any that question the official narrative. Those exposing the lie that is Covid and resisting the state mandates would be severely marginalized or worse if total fear grips America.

With resistance beginning to grow due to the draconian measures initiated by the state, including lockdowns, quarantine, job loss, and mask wearing, the risk of additional manufactured terror attacks, virus releases, bio-weapon deployment, other false flag events, or vaccine-related illnesses certainly should be expected. This is the world we live in, a dystopia brought about because the people allowed it to happen.

The turning point of all this insanity is near, and will advance in the state’s favor during this farce called the presidential election. This election will bring with it untold chaos, including looting, rioting, property destruction, and hatred among the population at large. This chaos will be used against all in this country, as even more division will be forthcoming, and with it, more uncertainty and violence, leading to more state interference in our lives. This is exactly what the claimed ruling elite desires, as the more fear and hatred that exists, the easier it is to control us all. This abhorrent election, regardless of the outcome, will be a disaster, and only extend the terror we have been facing since March of this year.

“The slavery of fear had made men afraid to think.”

- Thomas Paine, Bruce Kuklick (2000). “Paine: Political Writings”, p.162, Cambridge University Press

The push toward totalitarian rule is heading into the final stage this winter. That has been proclaimed openly by the dregs of the ruling and political classes. We are on the verge of losing any sovereignty we have left, and becoming just a cog in the wheel of a centralized federal power structure bent on creating a technocratic slave society to be used to support the top tier of the tyrannical few. Stop it now or submit your body, mind, and soul to your new position as a servant to your ‘human’ masters.

Famed Napa Valley Winery Destroyed As Glass Fire Explodes In Size

September 28, 2020 at 12:15 pm

Filed Under: California wildfire season, Glass Fire, Napa Valley, winery

(CNN) — The famed 41-year-old Chateau Boswell Winery in Napa Valley, California, was destroyed during the Glass Fire on Sunday evening, according to KPIX.

The private family-owned winery, established in 1979, is located along the popular Silverado Trail, an area that came under mandatory evacuation orders on Sunday as the Glass fire grew from a relatively small 20-acre vegetation fire to burn 11,000 acres. Photos show flames completely taking over the stone chateau as firefighters worked to contain them Sunday night.

Chateau Boswell, located in in St. Helena, is known as one of just a handful of privately owned family wineries remaining in Napa Valley, according to its website.

There are dozens of other wineries in the area, three of which — Reverie Winery, Viader Winery and Davis Estates winery — are also threatened by flames, according to KPIX.

Fueled by dry conditions and high winds, two other fires — the Boysen Fire and the Shady Fire — also sparked Sunday night in the area, according to Cal Fire.

Flames have forced tens of thousands of evacuations throughout Napa and Somona counties, officials say.

Democrats: Create Liberal Country, Divide Blue From Red – Republicans: ‘Yes, Please, Don’t Let The Door Hit You In The Butt On Your Way Out’

Democrats: Create Liberal Country, Divide Blue From Red – Republicans: ‘Yes, Please, Don’t Let The Door Hit You In The Butt On Your Way Out’

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

We have used the map above as a visual of why the electoral college is so very important, showing that limited “blue” strongholds should not be able to dictate the results of an election to the entire nation, because when broken down by county or “red versus blue” areas, rather than by compacted population in small areas, the sea of red shows how very little of the nation, geographical-wise, liberals actually inhabit.

For the purpose of this article, the visual represents the lunacy of some recent statements made by Lanny Davis, who once served as special counsel for former president Bill Clinton, who took to Twitter in a lengthy thread which began with “1) DEAR RED STATES; WE’RE LEAVING. We’ve decided we’re leaving. We intend to form our own country, we’re taking the other Blue States with us…that includes Hawaii, Oregon, California, New Mexico, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and all the Northeast.”

What Mr. Davis didn’t address because it would negate his entire 15 tweet thread is that entire states would not be part of his “create our own country” scenario, because in most of the country, the majority of the population may all be squeezed together in small areas like sardines, but they too are surrounded by the sea of red, meaning more counties would be staying American while Lanny and his cohorts all struck out on their own.

Interestingly, most conservatives that read his entire nonsensical thread, were saying “Yes, please, go… don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.”

His “plan” assumes that the red areas, the counties considered very conservative, wouldn’t flip him and his merry band of plotters off, or worse, decide the “state” wasn’t going anywhere, but they would happily provide an armed escort to help them leave the entire state.

That is seriously taking the cold civil war we are in the midst of now and blowing it all up into a hot civil war where even more blood is in the streets, on a daily basis.

Frankly I cannot imagine that many conservatives would be all that upset to see the backend of a bunch of blues, along with their failed policies that have led to many “blue” areas looking more and more like third world countries than cities in a great nation. Then we have people like singer John Legend insisting that people should leave America if President Trump is reelected.

Hollywood and musicians claimed they would leave if Trump won in 2016, yet they are still here. This means they are not only petulant children, but liars as well.

I think they should have to sign some sort of contract, Trump wins, they have to leave because they said they would…. isn’t that like a verbal contract or something?

(ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER: Due to unexpected medical and emergency repair bills, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this ‘Info-war’ for America at this most critical time in US history as we approach the 2020 election during a time of systematic ‘big tech’ censorship and widespread Democrat corruption.)

On the flip side, we see that many conservatives are not just mouthing off like Mr. Davis, but are actually packing up their stuff, without any fanfare, and heading on over to other “red” areas within the U.S., for a number of reasons. Some would rather be among likeminded conservatives in preparation for the increased chaos that is expected in the near future.

Others are so sick of liberal policies, as the image above shows, that they are simply taking their stuff, their money, (meaning their tax revenue) and simply leaving.

Many would think that this exodus of people living in “blue” areas would not bode well for the “red” areas they moved to because they would bring their bad policies with them, but a recent SHTF Plan article explains that isn’t an accurate reading of what is happening.

The Abraham Accords

By Hal Lindsey

On August 13th of this year, the United States, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates released a joint statement announcing an agreement normalizing relations between Israel and the UAE. They call their agreement the Abraham Accords. The announcement explained their choice for that name. “Recognizing that the Arab and Jewish peoples are descendants of a common ancestor, Abraham.”

Less than a month later, on September 12th, the White House announced that Bahrain had also agreed to normalization of ties with Israel.

The reactions of other Arab nations have been mixed. A group from the Kuwaiti assembly representing Liberals, Shi'ites, Islamists, and Arabists condemned the treaty. Significantly, however, the Kuwait government remained silent. That means they left their options open. Oman supported the agreement. Saudi Arabia said they would not normalize relations with Israel until the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

The Accords represent a remarkable turn of events and a huge diplomatic victory for the United States. Some have said that the Abraham Accords cannot be called a “peace agreement” because the nations involved were not officially at war with one another. While technically true, that fails to recognize the depth of enmity these Muslim nations have shown toward Israel over the seven decades of modern Israel’s existence.

After years of blood threats and extreme rage, why peace now? We should give a lot of credit to the President and his team, especially his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. But the most important factor is Iran. That nation scares everyone in the region. It has a large and growing nuclear weapons program. It is quickly developing missiles to carry those nukes wherever it wants to send them. It has developed ties to Russia and China. And its military meddling across the region shows that it has no respect for the sovereignty of neighbors. Israel makes a strong friend in such a dangerous time.

Even those Gulf nations that condemned the agreement continue to show a desire for friendship with Israel. That, too, is because of the severe and imminent threat posed by Iran. Only a few years ago, friendly overtures between these nations and Israel seemed impossible. Today, all that has changed.

Since before Israel declared its independence, these nations showed nothing but hatred for Israel. Yet the Bible teaches that a peace agreement between Israel, its neighbors, and the Antichrist will mark the starting point of the seven years of tribulation coming on the world. Until recently, such a peace treaty seemed utterly impossible. Now, it makes perfect sense.

Antichrist’s peace treaty will be hailed as miraculous, but the peace it will bring will be both short and weak. We can already see the nations moving in the direction of peace. But we can also see the inherent weakness of that future treaty. There remains a fundamental prejudice against Jews written into the Koran and other teachings associated with Mohammed.

The fracture lines that will mark the breakup of the Antichrist’s peace treaty are also evident. We already see the “king of the south” nations aligning, including most of the Gulf States. We also see the Ezekiel 38 group beginning to form.

You might wonder how Antichrist could ever convince Iran to agree to peace with Israel. That will probably be accomplished because of Russia’s power over Iran, and Russia’s need to be part of the world trade groups that Antichrist will control. But Ezekiel 38 says that Russia, Turkey, Iran, and certain African nations will form into another coalition that will break away from Antichrist’s peace accord and move against Israel.

The world is rapidly realigning itself into the place described by the Bible in the last days. It is an awe-inspiring thing to see. Thousands of years ago, prophets wrote down God’s words, and what He said then is coming true today. That provides a strong reason to trust Him and His word. In a time when it’s hard to know who you can believe, you can know that God has spoken, and believe Him.

US, UAE may agree on F-35 deal by December: Reuters

UAE could be the first Gulf state to possess the stealth jet, as US studies deal that is also acceptable to Israel. 22 Sep 2020

The United States and the United Arab Emirates hope to have an initial agreement on the sale of F-35 stealth fighter jets to the Gulf state in place by December, as the Trump administration studies how to structure a deal without running afoul of Israel.

The Reuters news agency, citing sources close to the negotiations, on Tuesday said the goal is to have a letter of agreement in place in time for UAE National Day, celebrated on December 2.

Any deal must satisfy decades of agreements with Israel that says any US weapons sold to the region must not impair Israel’s “qualitative military edge”, guaranteeing US weapons furnished to Israel are “superior in capability” to those sold to its neighbours. With that in mind, Washington is studying ways to make Lockheed Martin’s F-35 more visible to Israeli radar systems, two sources told Reuters.

The news agency said it could not determine if this would be done by changing the jet or providing Israel with better radar, among other possibilities. Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz was due to meet his US counterpart Mark Esper in Washington on Tuesday. The UAE’s embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The White House declined to comment.

A Pentagon spokeswoman told Reuters: “As a matter of policy, the United States does not confirm or comment on proposed defence sales or transfers until they are formally notified to Congress.”

Once a letter of agreement is signed, a fine may be levied against any party that terminates the deal.

Several political and regulatory hurdles must be cleared before the sale can be completed and Capitol Hill aides cautioned a deal may not be possible this year. Ellen Lord, the Pentagon’s chief weapons buyer, told reporters in August that in general, the US aims to complete a letter of agreement for new F-35 sales in about six months.

Because of the qualitative military edge restriction, the F-35 jets have been denied to Arab states, while Israel has about 24 of them. The UAE, one of Washington’s closest Middle East allies, has long expressed interest in acquiring the stealth jets and was promised a chance to buy them in a side deal made when they agreed to normalise relations with Israel, Reuters said.

Sources familiar with the negotiations said a working idea was for Israeli air defences to be able to detect the UAE F-35s with technology that effectively defeats the stealth capabilities of the jets.

F-35 fighter jets sold to the UAE could also be built in a way that ensures the same planes owned by Israel outperform any others sold in the region, defence experts told Reuters.

Washington already demands that any F-35 sold to foreign governments cannot match the performance of US jets, a congressional staffer and a source familiar with past sales said. The F-35’s technical sophistication is tied to its mission systems and processing power and “it’s the computing power that allows you to sell a higher-tech jet to Israel than to the UAE,” said Doug Birkey, executive director of the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies in Washington.

“When foreign pilots are in training in the US, they type a code into a user interface as they board the jet. The code will pull a different jet for each pilot based on legal permissions,” Birkey said. Either way, the actual delivery of new jets is years away. Poland, the most recent F-35 customer, purchased 32 of the jets in January, but will not receive its first delivery until 2024.

Violence Erupts Between Armenia And Azerbaijan Over Long-Disputed Region

September 27, 20202:03 PM ET Rachel Treisman Twitter

Fighting broke out between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh on Sunday, causing casualties on both sides and prompting the Armenian government to declare martial law and mobilize its military.

The conflict is the latest eruption of violence in a decades-long dispute over the region, which lies within the borders of Azerbaijan but is controlled by ethnic Armenian forces. Both countries have reported military and civilian deaths as of Sunday afternoon.

Armenian officials said Azerbaijani forces launched a "missile and aerial attack" in the region on Sunday morning, targeting peaceful settlements and shelling civilian infrastructures, while Azerbaijan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said its armed forces were responding to Armenian shelling.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in a tweet that the aggression seemed to be pre-planned, and "constitutes large-scale provocation against regional peace & security." Azerbaijan's president, Ilham Aliyev, countered that "the first fire, including artillery fire, was opened by Armenia, and the first victims were Azerbaijani servicemen."

Officials in both Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh declared martial law and dispatched armed forces as tensions rose on Sunday morning. The human rights ombudsman of Nagorno-Karabakh said that a woman and child were killed and two civilians were wounded in the Martuni region as a result of Azerbaijani shelling. The region's deputy defense minister later said that 16 Armenian forces were killed and more than 100 were wounded.

Aliyev, Azerbaijan's president, said enemy fire had killed and wounded both servicemen and civilians, and that "shedding of their blood will not go unpunished."

"Armenia is an occupying state, and an end to this occupation must and will be put," Aliyev added. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose nation shares a border with Armenia, reinforced his country's support for longtime ally Azerbaijan in a series of tweets, in which he called Armenia "the biggest threat to peace and tranquility in the region."

"The Turkish Nation stands by its Azerbaijani brothers with all its means, as always," he wrote.

In response, Armenian prime minister Pashinyan issued a statement calling on the international community to "use all of its influence to halt any possible interference by Turkey," which he said would have devastating consequences for the region.

The renewed conflict threatens the stability of the southern Caucasus, which is crisscrossed by numerous oil and gas pipelines. Reactions from the international community poured in on Sunday, with foreign leaders calling on the long-time adversaries to de-escalate the conflict and restart dialogue.

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's Minsk Group, co-chaired by the United States, Russia and France, has been working to permanently settle the dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia since 1994. Its leaders issued a joint statement expressing concern about the reports of military actions and condemning the use of force and "senseless loss of life."

"The Co-Chairs call on the sides to take all necessary measures to stabilize the situation on the ground and reiterate that there is no alternative to a peaceful negotiated solution of the conflict," they added.

Separately, officials in Russia and France urged the countries to cease fire and begin negotiations immediately.

Charles Michel, president of the European Council, also called for a halt to military action and a return to negotiations "without preconditions."

Similar hopes were expressed at the Vatican, where Pope Francis urged leaders to find a solution "not through the use of force and arms, but through the means of dialogue and negotiation."

Azerbaijan and Armenia have clashed periodically in the wake of the 1994 ceasefire that left Nagorno-Karabakh in Armenian control. Notably, a wave of violence in 2016 killed at least 30 troops on both sides. And more recently, fighting along the border killed at least 16 people in July.

Hezbollah's Growing Terror Network in Europe

by Con Coughlin September 25, 2020 at 4:00 am

According to Nathan Sales, the U.S. State Department's counterterrorism coordinator, Hezbollah has been steadily building up its weapons stockpiles in Europe with the aim of preparing for any future acts of terrorism that may be ordered by Tehran.

Describing Hezbollah's arms build-up in Europe as posing a "clear and present danger to the US" and its allies, Mr Sales said that US intelligence reports showed that Hezbollah had weapons based in Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, while "significant" ammonium nitrate caches had either been discovered or destroyed in France, Greece and Italy.

Further evidence of Hezbollah's expanding terrorist presence in Europe has emerged in Ireland, where ten members of an Irish dissident group known as the New IRA (NIRA) were arrested on terrorism charges last month, following claims they met with Hezbollah officials at Iran's embassy in Dublin.

At a time when tensions are increasing between Iran and the West over Tehran's controversial nuclear programme, the expansion of Hezbollah's terror operation in Europe should certainly be a major cause for concern. Iran, after all, has a long history of resorting to terrorism to put pressure on its adversaries, and Europe is an obvious target for future Iranian terror attacks. The conviction in absentia of two terrorists with links to the Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia for murdering five Israeli tourists in Bulgaria in 2012 has shed new light on the organisation's expanding terror network in Europe.

The convictions, which were announced earlier this week by the Specialised Criminal Court in Sofia, the Bulgarian capital, relate to a suicide bomb attack against a bus carrying Israeli tourists on July 18, 2012.

The attack took place at the airport in the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Burgas, killing five Israelis, as well as the bus driver.

Bulgarian investigators subsequently identified two prime suspects in the case, Meliad Farah, a Lebanese-Australian, and Hassan El Hajj Hassan, a Lebanese-Canadian, whom they claimed carried out the attack on behalf of Hezbollah.

While Hezbollah has consistently denied any involvement in the murders, the court nevertheless found the two men guilty of the attack, and sentenced them to life imprisonment without parole.

As the whereabouts of the convicted men is unknown, they are unlikely ever to serve their sentences. The evidence uncovered by Bulgarian prosecutors, however, pointing to Hezbollah's involvement in the attack has been sufficient to persuade European Union officials to place the organisation's so-called military wing on its terrorism blacklist. The convictions, moreover, shed fresh light on Hezbollah's burgeoning terror network in Europe, which US officials believe is part of Iran's attempts to expand its global terror capabilities.

In the early years of Iran's Islamic Revolution, the regime mainly confined its terrorist activities to the Middle East. But since the 1990s, Tehran has gradually been expanding its global terror network, the most infamous example being the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) in Buenos Aires, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds.

This means that today Iran has a global network ranging from Latin America, where Hezbollah has been accused of involvement in lucrative drug-smuggling activities, to Africa and Asia.

Now new evidence has emerged that suggests Hezbollah, with the help of its Iranian backers, is busy expanding its terror network in the heart of Europe.

According to Nathan Sales, the U.S. State Department's counterterrorism coordinator, Hezbollah has been steadily building up its weapons stockpiles in Europe with the aim of preparing for any future acts of terrorism that may be ordered by Tehran.

Speaking during a video appearance at the American Jewish Committee earlier this month, Mr Sales warned that recent American intelligence reports showed that Hezbollah was storing caches of weapons in countries throughout Europe. This included stockpiles of ammonium nitrate, the same material responsible for the devastating explosion at Beirut's port last month.

Describing Hezbollah's arms build-up in Europe as posing a "clear and present danger to the US" and its allies, Mr Sales said that US intelligence reports showed that Hezbollah had weapons based in Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, while "significant" ammonium nitrate caches had either been discovered or destroyed in France, Greece and Italy.

"We have reason to believe that this activity is still underway," Mr Sales said. "Why would Hezbollah stockpile ammonium nitrate on European soil? The answer is clear. It can conduct major terror attacks whenever its masters in Tehran deem it necessary."

Further evidence of Hezbollah's expanding terrorist presence in Europe has emerged in Ireland, where ten members of an Irish dissident group known as the New IRA (NIRA) were arrested on terrorism charges last month, following claims they met with Hezbollah officials at Iran's embassy in Dublin.

A joint undercover operation mounted by British and Irish security officials found that the group was attempting to acquire Iranian-made weapons for use against the British security forces.

The ten people charged with a variety of terrorism offences include a Palestinian activist, Dr Issam Hijjawi Bassalat, who travelled to Ireland to give lectures on the Palestinian territories.

Two NIRA supporters who were arrested during the operation are reported to have attended a commemoration event at the Iranian Embassy in Dublin held following the death of Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian terrorist mastermind killed by a US drone strike in January.

At a time when tensions are increasing between Iran and the West over Tehran's controversial nuclear programme, the expansion of Hezbollah's terror operations in Europe should certainly be a major cause for concern. Iran, after all, has a long history of resorting to terrorism to put pressure on its adversaries, and Europe is an obvious target for future Iranian terror attacks.

WEATHER MANIPULATION and THE RESULTS

compiled by Dee Finney

Many people have been talking about weather manipulation recently, even more so since Hurricane Katrina came rolling in very strangely. This is not the first time though, last years 5 hurricanes that hit Florida in the same spot was also suggested to be weather manipulation.

The question is, did another country manipulate the hurricanes and steer them to hit the U.S. the way they did, OR did our own government do this as a test to see whether our country could use weather as a weapon against other countries.

This question remains open. Details found on the web are below:   Dee

The Father Of Weaponized Weather

Ben Livingston on how the US government has manipulated the environment for over four decades

The Father Of Weaponized Weather ben5

Veteran weather modification expert Ben Livingston is a former Navy Physicist who briefed President Lyndon B. Johnson on the effectiveness of weather control back in the 1960′s during the Vietnam era, when he was involved in cloud seeding programs that worked to slow down the advance of Vietnamese and Korean troops. Livingston asserts that asserts that hurricane control was a national priority of the government more than 40 years ago and that the technology was fully operational to control the weather at the time.

In this exclusive interview for Prison Planet.tv subscribers, Livingston explains how for decades the US government has had the power to both lessen and increase the severity of adverse weather for their own purposes.

Dr Livingston was assigned in 1966 from the Naval weapons research Laboratory to a marine fighter squadron in Vietnam. Instead of guns, the aircraft under Livingston’s control were fitted with cloud seeding equipment. “My mission was to find clouds and seed them for maximum precipitation value” he stated.

The Father Of Weaponized Weather ben1 The Father Of Weaponized Weather ben2 The Father Of Weaponized Weather ben3

Dr Livingston presents evidence from the Stanford research Institute, who were brought into Project Storm Fury (a weather control program) in the late sixties as a third party, which stated conclusively that knowledge of how to stop hurricanes had been uncovered and that they would be directly liable should a hurricane hit and cause extensive damage and loss of life. Four decades later and Livingston exposes how the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina could have been greatly minimized but was allowed to fully impact Gulf states for political reasons.

Having personally flown on 265 missions into the eyes of hurricanes, Livingston remarks that he was “disgusted” by the failure to lessen the impact of Katrina. Livingston’s revelations that weather control has been a decades long program in which the US government has been deeply involved are particularly alarming given the abundant modern-day evidence of how chemtrails are being used to warp our environment in a secret geoengineering plot that threatens a myriad of unknown human health and ecological consequences.

109th CONGRESS - 2005  1st Session  S. 517

To establish the Weather Modification Operations and Research Board, and for other purposes

Connecting the Dots

Katrina: Another Deliberate 9-11?

by Lisa Guliani & Victor Thorn

Was New Orleans' Hurricane Katrina disaster another deliberately created "spike" event in the same vein as the Oklahoma City Bombing and NYC's 9-11? Quite a bit of information is starting to point in that direction. Some of the indicators are:

Could Katrina have been redirected to intentionally strike New Orleans? In other words, was this city strategically targeted because of its oil refining capabilities, thus providing the perfect excuse to drive gas prices to astronomical heights? Such a scenario was eerily outlined in a recent made-for-TV movie entitled Oil Storm, which even had the event coincidentally taking place during Labor Day weekend, 2005 --- only a one week difference from the actual event.

If the weather modification angle is too conspiratorial for you, how do we explain pending congressional legislation S 517, which was introduced on March 3, 2005 by Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison? This bill, which will be voted on in October, 2005, is specifically entitled The Weather Modification and Research Technology Transfer Authorization Act of 2005. Its purpose is to "develop and implement a comprehensive and coordinated national weather modification policy,  along with a national cooperative federal and state program of weather modification research and development." In addition, the term "weather modification" means: changing or controlling, or attempting to change/control by artificial methods the natural development of atmospheric cloud forms or precipitation forms which occur in the troposphere."

This legislation will legally allow our government to manipulate weather systems and not be punished as criminal for doing so. This point is important, for the United Nations outlawed such practices on December 10, 1976 under UN General Assembly Resolution 31/72. Yet, it has long been believed that forces within our own government and military have been engaging in activities such as weather modification and warfare via HAARP, EMF, microwave radiation, chemtrails, and other technologies. Also, the Air Force issued an

ominously titled research report in August, 1996: Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025.

Worse, what if the levees surrounding New Orleans were deliberately sabotaged? Radio talk show host Alex Merklinger (Mysteries of the Mind) stated on September 2, 2005 that he had received the following report:

"Eyewitness accounts from at least 25 people - who are fearful for their lives because they are talking – saw people blowing up the New Orleans levees after the main storm had subsided. That was to allow the water to flow in."

Also, famed author and researcher Eustace Mullins told us that these levees in question were extremely strong, and that it would take something akin to an atomic bomb to destroy them.

As stated earlier, there have been a variety of accounts suggesting that this storm followed an unlikely path to New Orleans. In addition, how do we explain water temperatures being substantially hotter than they should have been? Was the water cooked by EMF, microwave radiation, pulse technology, or some other energy source to redirect the hurricane? For more information on the manipulation of weather systems, see the work of Professor James McCanney, and also information on scalar technology. (Katrina and Weather Manipulation)

Furthermore, we know that land in New Orleans is very highly prized due to the fact that it serves as the primary hub for most of our country's oil refineries. But, in recent years, real estate values have depreciated, and some say this is indicative of the city's 70% black population, many of whom live in urban blighted shacks and shanties. Could this catastrophic storm be nothing more than an exercise in urban renewal outlined under the United Nation's Agenda 21 where those in lower socio-economic brackets are evacuated, then not allowed to return in the future? This would enable speculators to move in and reclaim that treasured land. Thus, the refugees are forced to leave their homes under the guise of a natural disaster, similar to what happened to the Japanese people when the U.S. dropped two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. (See chapter 37 of The New World Order Exposed)

Finally, could all of the above explain our federal government's delayed response to urgent pleas for assistance – a scenario which is strangely reminiscent of our military's stand-down on the morning of 9-11? Then, like a knight in shining armor, President George Bush and the National Guard both arrived five days later. And, by the way, President Bush was on vacation when the Asian tsunami hit in December 2004, and he was on vacation with Katrina. Plus, in the crucial weeks leading up to 9-11, Bush was yet again on vacation in Crawford, Texas. Coincidence? Maybe, but please remember this vital quote from Franklin D. Roosevelt: "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet it was planned that way."

Methods of Artificial Weather Manipulation (AWM) help agriculture, devastate the enemy and control the world economy

Staff Reporter Mar. 27, 2005

Scientists, Weather Engineers and Space Specialists are working towards something that can change human civilization forever! It is the methods of artificial weather modification.

The process when perfected, can help in agriculture, getting rid of droughts, floods and avoid cyclones and typhoons.

It is also the process by which the enemy can be devastated, artificial floods, cyclones and typhoons created.

It can allow controlling the world economy and agricultural commodity markets.

In ancient religions and legends, weather control, creation of cyclone, rain, flood, drought were nothing new. In the modern age the Scientists and technologists are busy perfecting the weather control sciences. It is shaping up as the most vibrant area of research and development.

Many countries are mastering the science of weather control. As a matter of fact many experts predict that a war game is being played by major powers in the world to demonstrate their capabilities of weather control. Most of these initiatives are classified and shoved off from the public. The only way one can track these initiatives is to look at countries taking actions to shield against weather control experiments

Recently, scientists and engineers have started unveiling the actual methods of weather control. Some primitive methods like Cloud-top seeding can confuse you and point you to a wrong direction. Cloud-top seeding is usually performed between the temperatures of -5°C and -10°C. The greatest amount of super-cooled liquid water is usually found within this range. This corresponds to an altitude range of 15,000 to 22,000 ft depending upon location. Dropping or ejecting silver iodide flares into the growing cloud turrets dispenses seeding agent. The seeding agent is placed into the super-cooled clouds where nucleation is desired, so the updrafts in these cases are relied upon only to provide a continuing source of condensate. This delivery technique requires less anticipation on the part of those directing the seeding operations and may have a more immediate effect.

The more modern methods involve artificial ionization of earth’s atmosphere between 15,000 and 30,000 ft. and above. Manipulating the ionosphere and use of controlled solar-terrestrial interactions can create much larger effects. Scientists are realizing that the earth’s weather is controlled by Sun's natural Electromagnetic Radiation reaching the earth. The Sun’s Radiations and Ultraviolet Rays have to cross the ionosphere to reach the earth.  There are early indications that the solar radiations and flares are directly responsible for planetary weather changes. And Solar flares and levels of radiations are caused by bombardment of cosmic rays on the Sun from either a distant massive black hole or a star-cluster caused by the collapse of thousands and thousands of stars in a small space.

Computer models obviously focused on the ionosphere, which acts as a filter for the solar radiations to reach the earth. If one can manipulate and control the filter, it becomes a potential source of massive weather modification. That is what the computer simulation models found. Controlling the ionosphere potentially allows weather control. The algorithmic variation of ionosphere can create the magic in a massive scale.

There are many methods of controlling the ionosphere. It is the process of artificially manipulating ion density in the ionosphere. High power transmitter and antenna array operating in the HF (High Frequency) range is one of the methods. There are lots of literature on that in the Internet and declassified scientific research journals.

However, the recent trend is in using super conductors in space satellites to generate intense high intensity electromagnetic flux.

Weather manipulation warfare from outerspace

India Daily Technology Team

Aug. 20, 2005

Weather manipulation warfare is taking a new sophistication. Researchers are planning use the space to manipulate the weather of the earth. Measures and counter measures mark the advanced war games that are being played.

The technology involves manipulation of the ionosphere. The advanced techniques involve application of artificial electromagnetic field intensities. For example a cyclone can be created by these methods but the challenge lies in guiding the cyclone or typhoon to the adversary’s infrastructure in the warfare. For that, scientists are using defection shields by which solar flares can be deflected at the eye of the cyclone and drag it in the desired path.

Artificial manipulation of ionosphere can create massive cyclones and typhoons. But the mare use of ionosphere can only create the seed. The application of electromagnetic flux and creating a temperature differential is what makes a cyclone menacing.

Scientists have struggled to understand the best process of guiding the storm or manipulated weather. Many methods have been used. One of the recent methods used is bombarding neutrinos at the center of the eye of the cyclone or typhoon. Electromagnetic guiding of the cyclone is gaining ground.

The counter measures adopted by the countries against covert weather manipulation warfare are also remarkable but are still in its infancy. One counter measure as opted by some countries is the application of artificial electromagnetic flux from the outer space to neutralize the deflected solar flares in the eye of the storm.

Eventually it will be weather manipulation warfare from the outer space. The satellite is being used now. But space agencies in the world are planning to bring in asteroids closer to earth, control them with bombarding projectiles and use them as landing base for weather manipulation infrastructure.

If an asteroid can be used for hosting the solar flare deflectors, artificial manipulation of earth’s ionospheres and magnetosphere and creation and application of targeted pinpointed electromagnetic flux, the storms can be accurately controlled and de-controlled.

The challenge finally lies into the hands of pace agencies; they are the one who will be responsible for weather manipulation and creation of nuclear shields.

"These “weaponized” pathogens target the elderly and other immune-compromised victims whose deaths go largely unremarked. Though I have avoided this conclusion during nine months of intensive research, I now believe that the culling of “unfit, useless eaters” has begun, with an initial goal (based on known mycoplasma and brucellosis mortalities) of 4%-5% fatalities among those infected.

While significant over time, such subtle increases in deaths among aged or ailing people already expected to die soon remain statistically stealthy - much less obtrusive than bodies piling up in the streets."

Climate Control & Manipulation

Washington's New World Order Weapons

By Michel Chossudovsky <chossudovsky@videotron.ca>

http://educate-yourself.org/cn/weacontrolbychossudovsky2000.shtml 

The important debate on global warming under UN auspices provides but a partial picture of climate change; in addition to the devastating impacts of greenhouse gas emissions on the ozone layer, the World's climate can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated "non-lethal weapons." Both the Americans and the Russians have developed capabilities to manipulate the World's climate.

In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP) as part of the ("Star Wars") Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes.

HAARP is a mass destructive weapons - not part of any negotiations

From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilising agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions.

While there is no evidence that this deadly technology has been used, surely the United Nations should be addressing the issue of "environmental warfare" alongside the debate on the climatic impacts of greenhouse gases.

Despite a vast body of scientific knowledge, the issue of deliberate climatic manipulations for military use has never been explicitly part of the UN agenda on climate change. Neither the official delegations nor the environmental action groups participating in the Hague Conference on Climate Change (CO6) (November 2000) have raised the broad issue of "weather warfare" or "environmental modification techniques (ENMOD)" as relevant to an understanding of climate change.

The clash between official negotiators, environmentalists and American business lobbies has centered on Washington's outright refusal to abide by commitments on carbon dioxide reduction targets under the 1997 Kyoto protocol.(1) The impacts of military technologies on the World's climate are not an object of discussion or concern. Narrowly confined to greenhouse gases, the ongoing debate on climate change serves Washington's strategic and defense objectives.

Weather Warfare

World renowned scientist Dr. Rosalie Bertell confirms that

"US military scientists · are working on weather systems as a potential weapon. The methods include the enhancing of storms and the diverting of vapor rivers in the Earth's atmosphere to produce targeted droughts or floods."(2)

Already in the 1970s, former National Security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski had foreseen in his book "Between Two Ages" that:

"Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised... Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm. "

Marc Filterman, a former French military officer, outlines several types of "unconventional weapons" using radio frequencies. He refers to "weather war," indicating that the U.S. and the Soviet Union had already "mastered the know-how needed to unleash sudden climate changes (hurricanes, drought) in the early 1980s." (3) These technologies make it "possible to trigger atmospheric disturbances by using Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radar [waves]." (4)

A simulation study of future defense "scenarios" commissioned for the US Air Force calls for: "US aerospace forces to 'own the weather' by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications." From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels. (5)

HAARP

The High-Frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokoma Alaska --jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy-- is part of a new generation of sophisticated weaponry under the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory's Space Vehicles Directorate, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating "controlled local modifications of the ionosphere".

Scientist Dr. Nicholas Begich --actively involved in the public campaign against HAARP-- describes HAARP as: "A super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere [upper layer of the atmosphere] by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything -- living and dead." (6)

Dr. Rosalie Bertell depicts HAARP as "a gigantic heater that can cause major disruption in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet." (7)

Misleading public opinion

HAARP has been presented to public opinion as a program of scientific and academic research. US military documents seem to suggest, however, that HAARP's main objective is to "exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes." (8) Without explicitly referring to the HAARP program, a US Air Force study points to the use of "induced ionospheric modifications" as a means of altering weather patterns as well as disrupting enemy communications and radar.(9)

According to Dr. Rosalie Bertell, HAARP is part of a integrated weapons' system, which has potentially devastating environmental consequences: "It is related to fifty years of intensive and increasingly destructive programs to understand and control the upper atmosphere. It would be rash not to associate HAARP with the space laboratory construction which is separately being planned by the United States. HAARP is an integral part of a long history of space research and development of a deliberate military nature.

The military implications of combining these projects is alarming. The ability of the HAARP / Spacelab/ rocket combination to deliver very large amount of energy, comparable to a nuclear bomb, anywhere on earth via laser and particle beams, are frightening. The project is likely to be "sold" to the public as a space shield against incoming weapons, or, for the more gullible, a device for repairing the ozone layer. (10)

In addition to weather manipulation, HAARP has a number of related uses: "HAARP could contribute to climate change by intensively bombarding the atmosphere with high-frequency rays. Returning low-frequency waves at high intensity could also affect people's brains, and effects on tectonic movements cannot be ruled out. (11).

More generally, HAARP has the ability of modifying the World's electro-magnetic field. It is part of an arsenal of "electronic weapons" which US military researchers consider a "gentler and kinder warfare". (12)

Weapons of the New World Order

HAARP is part of the weapons arsenal of the New World Order under the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). From military command points in the US, entire national economies could potentially be destabilized through climatic manipulations. More importantly, the latter can be implemented without the knowledge of the enemy, at minimal cost and without engaging military personnel and equipment as in a conventional war. The use of HAARP -- if it were to be applied-- could have potentially devastating impacts on the World's climate.

Responding to US economic and strategic interests, it could be used to selectively modify climate in different parts of the World resulting in the destabilization of agricultural and ecological systems. It is also worth noting that the US Department of Defense has allocated substantial resources to the development of intelligence and monitoring systems on weather changes. NASA and the Department of Defense's National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) are working on "imagery for studies of flooding, erosion, land-slide hazards, earthquakes, ecological zones, weather forecasts, and climate change" with data relayed from satellites. (13) POLICY INERTIA OF THE UNITED NATIONS According to the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) signed at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro:

"States have, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law, the responsibility to ensure that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to the environment of other States or of areas beyond the limits of national jurisdiction." (14). It is also worth recalling that an international Convention ratified by the UN General Assembly in 1997 bans "military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects." (15) Both the US and the Soviet Union were signatories to the Convention. The Convention defines "environmental modification techniques" as referring to any technique for changing--through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes--the dynamics, composition or structure of the earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere or of outer space." (16) Why then did the UN --disregarding the 1977 ENMOD Convention as well as its own charter-- decide to exclude from its agenda climatic changes resulting from military programs?

European Parliament acknowledges impact of HAARP

In February 1998, responding to a report of Mrs. Maj Britt Theorin --Swedish MEP and longtime peace advocate--, the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs, Security and Defense Policy held public hearings in Brussels on the HAARP program.(17) The Committee's "Motion for Resolution" submitted to the European Parliament: "Considers HAARP by virtue of its far-reaching impact on the environment to be a global concern and calls for its legal, ecological and ethical implications to be examined by an international independent body; [the Committee] regrets the repeated refusal of the United States Administration to give evidence to the public hearing into the environmental and public risks [of] the HAARP program." (18.)

The Committee's request to draw up a "Green Paper" on "the environmental impacts of military activities", however, was casually dismissed on the grounds that the European Commission lacks the required jurisdiction to delve into "the links between environment and defense". (19) Brussels was anxious to avoid a showdown with Washington.

Fully operational

While there is no concrete evidence of HAARP having been used, scientific findings suggest that it is at present fully operational. What this means is that HAARP could potentially be applied by the US military to selectively modify the climate of an "unfriendly nation" or "rogue state" with a view to destabilizing its national economy. Agricultural systems in both developed and developing countries are already in crisis as a result of New World Order policies including market deregulation, commodity dumping, etc. Amply documented, IMF and World Bank "economic medicine" imposed on the Third World and the countries of the former Soviet block has largely contributed to the destabilization of domestic agriculture. In turn, the provisions of the World Trade Organization (WTO) have supported the interests of a handful of Western agri-biotech conglomerates in their quest to impose genetically modified (GMO) seeds on farmers throughout the World.

It is important to understand the linkage between the economic, strategic and military processes of the New World Order. In the above context, climatic manipulations under the HAARP program (whether accidental or deliberate) would inevitably exacerbate these changes by weakening national economies, destroying infrastructure and potentially triggering the bankruptcy of farmers over vast areas. Surely national governments and the United Nations should address the possible consequences of HAARP and other "non-lethal weapons" on climate change.

Can the Russians Control the Weather?

How cloud seeding works.

Always take the weather with you

Last weekend, Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian Air Force to keep it from raining over Moscow in advance of Monday's military parade. The Air Force used a procedure called cloud seeding, and Russia's defense minister later took credit for Monday's sunshine. Can the Russians really control the weather?

They can try. Proponents of "cloud seeding" say it's possible to induce rain and snow (after which clouds can break up and disappear), suppress hail, and clear up patches of fog. Twenty or 30 countries run cloud-seeding operations of some sort; China has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on weather manipulation over the last decade. The bureau in charge of cloud seeding in Thailand reportedly has 600 staff-members and a $25 million budget. No federal funds go toward cloud seeding in America, but a handful of states finance projects locally. Utah just kicked in for $400,000 worth of weather control projects.

Here's how it works: Rain starts as tiny droplets of water suspended in clouds. Then the droplets clump together into bigger drops (or freeze together into bigger crystals). Once the drops or crystals are big and heavy enough, they fall out of the sky. The frozen drops can melt on the way down, becoming rain, or they can fall to the ground as snow. Cloud seeding aims to jump-start this process by helping droplets to clump or freeze together when they otherwise wouldn't.

Cloud seeders use a number of procedures. In the mid-1940s, three scientists at General Electric (including the novelist Kurt Vonnegut's brother Bernie) showed that by injecting dry ice into a cloud, you could freeze tiny droplets of water, which would in turn make it easier for other droplets to glom on and freeze as well. Later experiments showed that silver iodide—which has a crystal structure similar to that of ice—could also help, by forming "ice nuclei" upon which droplets might freeze.

To induce rain with dry ice, you would fly a plane over a small cloud and sprinkle down a few cups' worth of dry ice pellets. To seed with silver iodide, you'd vaporize a solution at high temperatures and disperse it in the cloud. This can be done using silver iodide flares, which are dropped 8 or 10 at a time from above the cloud, or with silver-iodide-filled rockets or anti-aircraft shells. If you're seeding clouds over a mountain, you can use generators on the ground which release silver iodide vapor into the air currents that rise up one side of the mountain and into the clouds.

Silver iodide and dry ice are examples of "glaciogenic" agents, and they only help to produce rain in clouds of sufficiently low temperatures. For warmer clouds—in which droplets don't freeze before falling—cloud seeders can use sprays of saline solution to attract droplets and, theoretically, to induce rain.

It's difficult to prove whether cloud seeding actually has any effect. Weather phenomena are so variable that slight changes in the probability of rain are difficult to measure, and not many careful, controlled studies have been done. The U.S. federal government was at one time very optimistic about weather manipulation; by the late 1970s, annual funding for cloud-seeding projects hit $20 million. But after years without definitive results, interest in Washington has evaporated (except, perhaps, among the people who introduced this bill in the Senate in early March). Some studies have suggested that cloud seeding actually reduces rainfall, or merely redistributes it. A 2003 report from the National Research Council concluded that while cloud seeding may hold promise, we still don't know very much about it.

The Military's Pandora's Box

by Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning

This article was prepared to provide a summary of the contents of a book written in 1995 which describes an entirely new class of weapons. The weapons and their effects are described in the following pages. The United States Navy and Air Force have joined with the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, to build a prototype for a ground based "Star Wars" weapon system located in the remote bush country of Alaska.

The individuals who are demanding answers about HAARP are scattered around the planet. As well as bush dwellers in Alaska, they include: a physician in Finland; a scientist in Holland; an anti-nuclear protester in Australia; independent physicists in the United States; a grandmother in Canada, and countless others.

Unlike the protests of the 1960s the objections to HAARP have been registered using the tools of the 1990s. From the Internet, fax machines, syndicated talk radio and a number of alternative print mediums the word is getting out and people are waking up to this new intrusion by an over zealous United States government.

The research team put together to gather the materials which eventually found their way into the book never held a formal meeting, never formed a formal organization. Each person acted like a node on a planetary info-spirit-net with one goal held by all -- to keep this controversial new science in the public eye. The result of the team's effort was a book which describes the science and the political ramifications of this technology.

That book, Angels Don't Play this HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology, has 230 pages. This article will only give the highlights. Despite the amount of research (350 footnoted sources), at its heart it is a story about ordinary people who took on an extraordinary challenge in bringing their research forward.

HAARP Boils the Upper Atmosphere

HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model of an "ionospheric heater." (The ionosphere is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth's upper atmosphere. It ranges between 40 to 60 miles above the surface of the Earth.)

Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope; antenna send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything -- living and dead.

HAARP publicity gives the impression that the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program is mainly an academic project with the goal of changing the ionosphere to improve communications for our own good. However, other U.S. military documents put it more clearly -- HAARP aims to learn how to "exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes." Communicating with submarines is only one of those purposes.

Press releases and other information from the military on HAARP continually downplay what it could do. Publicity documents insist that the HAARP project is no different than other ionospheric heaters operating safely throughout the world in places such as Arecibo, Puerto Rico, Tromso, Norway, and the former Soviet Union. However, a 1990 government document indicates that the radio-frequency (RF) power zap will drive the ionosphere to unnatural activities.

" ... at the highest HF powers available in the West, the instabilities commonly studied are approaching their maximum RF energy dissipative capability, beyond which the plasma processes will 'runaway' until the next limiting factor is reached."

If the military, in cooperation with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, can show that this new ground-based "Star Wars" technology is sound, they both win. The military has a relatively-inexpensive defense shield and the University can brag about the most dramatic geophysical manipulation since atmospheric explosions of nuclear bombs. After successful testing, they would have the military megaprojects of the future and huge markets for Alaska's North Slope natural gas.

Looking at the other patents which built on the work of a Texas' physicist named Bernard Eastlund, it becomes clearer how the military intends to use the HAARP transmitter. It also makes governmental denials less believable. The military knows how it intends to use this technology, and has made it clear in their documents. The military has deliberately misled the public, through sophisticated word games, deceit and outright disinformation.

The military says the HAARP system could:

Give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a viable option by the military through at least 1986)

Replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact technology

Be used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system that was once planned for the current location of HAARP, with a more flexible and accurate system

Provide a way to wipe out communications over an extremely large area, while keeping the military's own communications systems working

Provide a wide area earth-penetrating tomography which, if combined with the computing abilities of EMASS and Cray computers, would make it possible to verify many parts of nuclear nonproliferation and peace agreements

Be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas and mineral deposits over a large area

Be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise missiles, making other technologies obsolete

The above abilities seem like a good idea to all who believe in sound national defense, and to those concerned about cost-cutting. However, the possible uses which the HAARP records do not explain, and which can only be found in Air Force, Army, Navy and other federal agency records, are alarming. Moreover, effects from the reckless use of these power levels in our natural shield -- the ionosphere -- could be cataclysmic according to some scientists.

Two Alaskans put it bluntly. A founder of the NO HAARP movement, Clare Zickuhr, says "The military is going to give the ionosphere a big kick and see what happens."

The military failed to tell the public that they do not know what exactly will happen, but a Penn State science article brags about that uncertainty. Macho science? The HAARP project uses the largest energy levels yet played with by what Begich and Manning call "the big boys with their new toys." HAARP is an experiment in the sky, and experiments are done to find out something not already known. Independent scientists told Begich and Manning that a HAARP-type "skybuster" with its unforeseen effects could be an act of global vandalism.

HAARP History

The patents described below were the package of ideas which were originally controlled by ARCO Power Technologies Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield Company, one of the biggest oil companies in the world. APTI was the contractor that built the HAARP facility. ARCO sold this subsidiary, the patents and the second phase construction contract to E-Systems in June 1994.

E-Systems is one of the biggest intelligence contractors in the world -- doing work for the CIA, defense intelligence organizations and others. $1.8 billion of their annual sales are to these organizations, with $800 million for black projects -- projects so secret that even the United States Congress isn't told how the money is being spent.

E-Systems was bought out by Raytheon, which is one of the largest defense contractors in the world. In 1994 Raytheon was listed as number forty-two on the Fortune 500 list of companies. Raytheon has thousands of patents, some of which will be valuable in the HAARP project. The twelve patents below are the backbone of the HAARP project, and are now buried among the thousands of others held in the name of Raytheon. Bernard J. Eastlund's U.S. Patent # 4,686,605, "Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth's Atmosphere, Ionosphere; and/or Magnetosphere," was sealed for a year under a government Secrecy Order.

The Eastlund ionospheric heater was different; the radio frequency (RF) radiation was concentrated and focused to a point in the ionosphere. This difference throws an unprecedented amount of energy into the ionosphere. The Eastlund device would allow a concentration of one watt per cubic centimeter, compared to others only able to deliver about one millionth of one watt.

This huge difference could lift and change the ionosphere in the ways necessary to create futuristic effects described in the patent. According to the patent, the work of Nikola Tesla in the early 1900's formed the basis of the research.

What would this technology be worth to ARCO, the owner of the patents? They could make enormous profits by beaming electrical power from a powerhouse in the gas fields to the consumer without wires.

For a time, HAARP researchers could not prove that this was one of the intended uses for HAARP. In April, 1995, however, Begich found other patents, connected with a "key personnel" list for APTI. Some of these new APTI patents were indeed a wireless system for sending electrical power. Eastlund's patent said the technology can confuse or completely disrupt airplanes' and missiles' sophisticated guidance systems. Further, this ability to spray large areas of Earth with electromagnetic waves of varying frequencies, and to control changes in those waves, makes it possible to knock out communications on land or sea as well as in the air.

The patent said:

"Thus, this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented amounts of power in the Earth's atmosphere at strategic locations and to maintain the power injection level particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a manner far more precise and better controlled than heretofore accomplished by the prior art, particularly by detonation of nuclear devices of various yields at various altitudes... "

"...it is possible not only to interfere with third party communications but to take advantage of one or more such beams to carry out a communications network even though the rest of the world's communications are disrupted. Put another way, what is used to disrupt another's communications can be employed by one knowledgeable of this invention as a communication network at the same time."

"...  and unplanned draglarge regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected forces with resultant destruction."

"Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device.

... molecular modifications of the atmosphere can take place so that positive environmental effects can be achieved. Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc., concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially increased."

Begich found eleven other APTI Patents. They told how to make "Nuclear-sized Explosions without Radiation," Power-beaming systems, over-the-horizon radar, detection systems for missiles carrying nuclear warheads, electromagnetic pulses previously produced by thermonuclear weapons and other Star-Wars tricks. This cluster of patents underlay the HAARP weapon system.

Related research by Begich and Manning uncovered bizarre schemes. For example, Air Force documents revealed that a system had been developed for manipulating and disturbing human mental processes through pulsed radio-frequency radiation (the stuff of HAARP) over large geographical areas. The most telling material about this technology came from writings of Zbigniew Brzezinski (former National Security Advisory to U.S. President Carter) and J.F. MacDonald (science advisor to U.S. President Johnson and a professor of Geophysics at UCLA), as they wrote about use of power-beaming transmitters for geophysical and environmental warfare. The documents showed how these effects might be caused, and the negative effects on human heath and thinking.

The mental-disruption possibilities for HAARP are the most disturbing. More than 40 pages of the book, with dozens of footnotes, chronicle the work of Harvard professors, military planners and scientists as they plan and test this use of the electromagnetic technology. For example, one of the papers describing this use was from the International Red Cross in Geneva. It even gave the frequency ranges where these effects could occur -- the same ranges which HAARP is capable of broadcasting.

The following statement was made more than twenty-five years ago in a book by Brzezinski which he wrote while a professor at Columbia University:

"Political strategists are tempted to exploit research on the brain and human behavior. Geophysicist Gordon J.F. MacDonald, a specialist in problems of warfare, says accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the earth ... in this way one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations in selected regions over an extended period"

" ... no matter how deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate behavior for national advantages, to some, the technology permitting such use will very probably develop within the next few decades."

In 1966, MacDonald was a member of the President's Science Advisory Committee and later a member of the President's Council on Environmental Quality. He published papers on the use of environmental control technologies for military purposes. The most profound comment he made as a geophysicist was, "the key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy." While yesterday's geophysicists predicted today's advances, are HAARP program managers delivering on the vision?

The geophysicists recognized that adding energy to the environmental soup could have large effects. However, humankind has already added substantial amounts of electromagnetic energy into our environment without understanding what might constitute critical mass. The book by Begich and Manning raises questions:

Have these additions been without effect, or is there a cumulative amount beyond which irreparable damage can be done?

Is HAARP another step in a journey from which we cannot turn back?

Are we about to embark on another energy experiment which unleashes another set of demons from Pandora's box?

As early as 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski predicted a "more controlled and directed society" would gradually appear, linked to technology. This society would be dominated by an elite group which impresses voters by allegedly superior scientific know-how. Angels Don't Play This HAARP further quotes Brzezinski:

"Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then feed on the situation it exploits," Brzezinski predicted.

His forecasts proved accurate. Today, a number of new tools for the "elite" are emerging, and the temptation to use them increases steadily. The policies to permit the tools to be used are already in place. How could the United States be changed, bit by bit, into the predicted highly-controlled technosociety? Among the "steppingstones" Brzezinski expected were persisting social crises and use of the mass media to gain the public's confidence.

In another document prepared by the government, the U.S. Air Force claims: "The potential applications of artificial electromagnetic fields are wide-ranging and can be used in many military or quasi-military situations... Some of these potential uses include dealing with terrorist groups, crowd control, controlling breaches of security at military installations, and antipersonnel techniques in tactical warfare. In all of these cases the EM (electromagnetic) systems would be used to produce mild to severe physiological disruption or perceptual distortion or disorientation. In addition, the ability of individuals to function could be degraded to such a point that they would be combat ineffective. Another advantage of electromagnetic systems is that they can provide coverage over large areas with a single system. They are silent and countermeasures to them may be difficult to develop... One last area where electromagnetic radiation may prove of some value is in enhancing abilities of individuals for anomalous phenomena."

Do these comments point to uses already somewhat developed? The author of the government report refers to an earlier Air Force document about the uses of radio frequency radiation in combat situations. (Here Begich and Manning note that HAARP is the most versatile and the largest radio-frequency-radiation transmitter in the world.)

The United States Congressional record deals with the use of HAARP for penetrating the earth with signals bounced off of the ionosphere. These signals are used to look inside the planet to a depth of many kilometers in order to locate underground munitions, minerals and tunnels. The U.S. Senate set aside $15 million dollars in 1996 to develop this ability alone -- earth-penetrating-tomography. The problem is that the frequency needed for earth-penetrating radiation is within the frequency range most cited for disruption of human mental functions. It may also have profound effects on migration patterns of fish and wild animals which rely on an undisturbed energy field to find their routes.

As if electromagnetic pulses in the sky and mental disruption were not enough, T. Eastlund bragged that the super-powerful ionospheric heater could control weather.

Begich and Manning brought to light government documents indicating that the military has weather-control technology. When HAARP is eventually built to its full power level, it could create weather effects over entire hemispheres. If one government experiments with the world's weather patterns, what is done in one place will impact everyone else on the planet. Angels Don't Play This HAARP explains a principle behind some of Nikola Tesla's inventions -- resonance -- which affect planetary systems.

Bubble of Electric Particles

Angels Don't Play This HAARP includes interviews with independent scientists such as Elizabeth Rauscher. She has a Ph.D., a long and impressive career in high-energy physics, and has been published in prestigious science journals and books. Rauscher commented on HAARP. "You're pumping tremendous energy into an extremely delicate molecular configuration that comprises these multi-layers we call the ionosphere."

"The ionosphere is prone to catalytic reactions," she explained, "if a small part is changed, a major change in the ionosphere can happen."

In describing the ionosphere as a delicately balanced system, Dr. Rauscher shared her mental picture of it -- a soap-bubble-like sphere surrounding Earth's atmosphere, with movements swirling over the surface of the bubble. If a big enough hole is punched through it, she predicts, it could pop.

Slicing the Ionosphere

Physicist Daniel Winter, Ph.D., of Waynesville, North Carolina, says, "HAARP high-frequency emissions can couple with longwave (extremely-low-frequency, or ELF) pulses the Earth grid uses to distribute information as vibrations to synchronize dances of life in the biosphere." Dan terms this geomagnetic action 'Earth's information bloodstream,' and says it is likely that coupling of HAARP HF (high-frequency) with natural ELF can cause unplanned, unsuspected side effects.

David Yarrow of Albany, New York, is a researcher with a background in electronics. He described possible interactions of HAARP radiation with the ionosphere and Earth's magnetic grid: "HAARP will not burn holes in the ionosphere. That is a dangerous understatement of what HAARP's giant gigawatt beam will do. Earth is spinning relative to thin electric shells of the multilayer membrane of ion-o-speres that absorb and shield Earth's surface from intense solar radiation, including charged particle storms in solar winds erupting from the sun. Earth's axial spin means that HAARP -- in a burst lasting more than a few minutes -- will slice through the ionosphere like a microwave knife. This produces not a hole but a long tear -- an incision."

Crudely Plucking the Strings

Second concept: As Earth rotates, HAARP will slice across the geomagnetic flux, a donut-shaped spool of magnetic strings -- like longitude meridians on maps.

HAARP may not 'cut' these strings in Gaia's magnetic mantle, but will pulse each thread with harsh, out-of-harmony high frequencies. These noisy impulses will vibrate geomagnetic flux lines, sending vibrations all through the geomagnetic web. "

"The image comes to mind of a spider on its web. An insect lands, and the web's vibrations alert the spider to possible prey. HAARP will be a man-made microwave finger poking at the web, sending out confusing signals, if not tearing holes in the threads. "

"Effects of this interference with symphonies of Gaia's geomagnetic harp are unknown, and I suspect barely thought of. Even if thought of, the intent (of HAARP) is to learn to exploit any effects, not to play in tune to global symphonies. "

Among other researchers quoted is Paul Schaefer of Kansas City. His degree is in electrical engineering and he spent four years building nuclear weapons. "But most of the theories that we have been taught by scientists to believe in seem to be falling apart," he says. He talks about imbalances already caused by the industrial and atomic age, especially by radiation of large numbers of tiny, high-velocity particles "like very small spinning tops" into our environment. The unnatural level of motion of highly-energetic particles in the atmosphere and in radiation belts surrounding Earth is the villain in the weather disruptions, according to this model, which describes an Earth discharging its buildup of heat, relieving stress and regaining a balanced condition through earthquakes and volcanic action.

Feverish Earth

"One might compare the abnormal energetic state of the Earth and its atmosphere to a car battery which has become overcharged with the normal flow of energy jammed up, resulting in hot spots, electrical arcing, physical cracks and general turbulence as the pent-up energy tries to find some place to go."

In a second analogy, Schaefer says "Unless we desire the death of our planet, we must end the production of unstable particles which are generating the earth's fever. A first priority to prevent this disaster would be to shut down all nuclear power plants and end the testing of atomic weapons, electronic warfare and 'Star Wars'." Meanwhile, the military builds its biggest ionospheric heater yet, to deliberately create more instabilities in a huge plasma layer -- the ionosphere -- and to rev up the energy level of charged particles.

Electronic Rain From The Sky

They have published papers about electron precipitation from the magnetosphere (the outer belts of charged particles which stream toward Earth's magnetic poles) caused by man-made very low frequency electromagnetic waves. "These precipitated particles can produce secondary ionization, emit X-rays, and cause significant perturbation in the lower ionosphere."

Two Stanford University radio scientists offer evidence of what technology can do to affect the sky by making waves on earth; they showed that very low frequency radio waves can vibrate the magnetosphere and cause high-energy particles to cascade into Earth's atmosphere. By turning the signal on or off, they could stop the flow of energetic particles.

Weather Control

Avalanches of energy dislodged by such radio waves could hit us hard. Their work suggests that technicians could control global weather by sending relatively small 'signals' into the Van Allen belts (radiation belts around Earth). Thus Tesla's resonance effects can control enormous energies by tiny triggering signals.

The Begich/ Manning book asks whether that knowledge will be used by war-oriented or biosphere-oriented scientists.

The military has had about twenty years to work on weather warfare methods, which it euphemistically calls weather modification. For example, rainmaking technology was taken for a few test rides in Vietnam. The U.S. Department of Defense sampled lightning and hurricane manipulation studies in Project Skyfire and Project Stormfury. And they looked at some complicated technologies that would give big effects. Angels Don't Play This HAARP cites an expert who says the military studied both lasers and chemicals which they figured could damage the ozone layer over an enemy. Looking at ways to cause earthquakes, as well as to detect them, was part of the project named Prime Argus, decades ago. The money for that came from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA, now under the acronym ARPA.) In 1994 the Air Force revealed its Spacecast 2020 master plan which includes weather control. Scientists have experimented with weather control since the 1940's, but Spacecast 2020 noted that "using environmental modification techniques to destroy, damage or injure another state are prohibited." Having said that, the Air Force claimed that advances in technology "compels a reexamination of this sensitive and potentially risky topic."

40 Years of Zapping the Sky?

As far back as 1958, the chief White House advisor on weather modification, Captain Howard T. Orville, said the U.S. defense department was studying "ways to manipulate the charges of the earth and sky and so affect the weather" by using an electronic beam to ionize or de-ionize the atmosphere over a given area.

In 1966, Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald was associate director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California, Los Angeles, was a member of the President's Science Advisory Committee, and later a member of the President's Council on Environmental Quality.

He published papers on the use of environmental-control technologies for military purposes. MacDonald made a revealing comment: "The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy. " World-recognized scientist MacDonald had a number of ideas for using the environment as a weapon system and he contributed to what was, at the time, the dream of a futurist. When he wrote his chapter, "How To Wreck The Environment," for the book Unless Peace Comes, he was not kidding around. In it he describes the use of weather manipulation, climate modification, polar ice cap melting or destabilization, ozone depletion techniques, earthquake engineering, ocean wave control and brain wave manipulation using the planet's energy fields.

He also said that these types of weapons would be developed and, when used, would be virtually undetectable by their victims. Is HAARP that weapon? The military's intention to do environmental engineering is well documented, U.S. Congress' subcommittee hearings on Oceans and International Environment looked into military weather and climate modification conducted in the early 1970's. "What emerged was an awesome picture of far-ranging research and experimentation by the Department of Defense into ways environmental tampering could be used as a weapon," said another author cited in Angles Don't Play This HAARP.

The revealed secrets surprised legislators. Would an inquiry into the state of the art of electromagnetic manipulation surprise lawmakers today? They may find out that technologies developed out of the HAARP experiments in Alaska could deliver on Gordon MacDonald's vision because leading-edge scientists are describing global weather as not only air pressure and thermal systems, but also as an electrical system.

Small Input - Big Effect

HAARP zaps the ionosphere where it is relatively unstable. A point to remember is that the ionosphere is an active electrical shield protecting the planet from the constant bombardment of high-energy particles from space. This conducting plasma, along with Earth's magnetic field, traps the electrical plasma of space and holds it back from going directly to the earth's surface, says Charles Yost of Dynamic Systems, Leicester, North Carolina. "If the ionosphere is greatly disturbed, the atmosphere below is subsequently disturbed."

Another scientist interviewed said there is a super-powerful electrical connection between the ionosphere and the part of the atmosphere where our weather comes onstage, the lower atmosphere.

One man-made electrical effect -- power line harmonic resonance -- causes fallout of charged particles from the Van Allen (radiation) belts, and the falling ions cause ice crystals (which precipitate rain clouds). What about HAARP? Energy blasted upward from an ionospheric heater is not much compared to the total in the ionosphere, but HAARP documents admit that thousandfold-greater amounts of energy can be released in the ionosphere than injected. As with MacDonald's "key to geophysical warfare," "nonlinear" effects (described in the literature about the ionospheric heater) mean small input and large output. Astrophysicist Adam Trombly told Manning that an acupuncture model is one way to look at the possible effect of multi-gigawatt pulsing of the ionosphere. If HAARP hits certain points, those parts of the ionosphere could react in surprising ways.

Smaller ionospheric heaters such as the one at Arecibo are underneath relatively placid regions of the ionosphere, compared to the dynamic movements nearer Earth's magnetic poles. That adds another uncertainty to HAARP -- the unpredictable and lively upper atmosphere near the North Pole.

HAARP experimenters do not impress commonsense Alaskans such as Barbara Zickuhr, who says "They're like boys playing with a sharp stick, finding a sleeping bear and poking it in the butt to see what's going to happen."

Could They Short-Circuit Earth?

Earth as a spherical electrical system is a fairly well-accepted model. However, those experimenters who want to make unnatural power connections between parts of this system might not be thinking of possible consequences. Electrical motors and generators can be caused to wobble when their circuits are affected. Could human activities cause a significant change in a planet's electrical circuit or electrical field? A paper in the respected journal Science deals with manmade ionization from radioactive material, but perhaps it could also be studied with HAARP-type skybusters in mind:

"For example, while changes in the earth's electric field resulting from a solar flare modulating conductivity may have only a barely detectable effect on meteorology, the situation may be different in regard to electric field changes caused by manmade ionization... " Meteorology, of course, is the study of the atmosphere and weather. ionization is what happens when a higher level of power is zapped into atoms and knocks electrons off the atoms. The resulting charged particles are the stuff of HAARP. "One look at the weather should tell us that we are on the wrong path," says Paul Schaefer, commenting on HAARP-type technologies.

Angels Don't Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology is about the military's plan to manipulate that which belongs to the world -- the ionosphere. The arrogance of the United States government in this is not without precedent.

Atmospheric nuclear tests had similar goals. More recently, China and France put their people's money to destructive use in underground nuclear tests. It was recently reported that the US government spent $3 trillion dollars on its nuclear program since its beginnings in the 1940's. What new breakthroughs in life science could have been made with all the money spent on death?

Begich, Manning, Roderick and others believe that democracies need to be founded on openness, rather than the secrecy which surrounds so much military science. Knowledge used in developing revolutionary weapons could be used for healing and helping mankind. Because they are used in new weapons, discoveries are classified and suppressed. When they do appear in the work of other independent scientists, the new ideas are often frustrated or ridiculed, while military research laboratories continue to build their new machines for the killing fields.

However, the book by Manning and Begich gives hope that the military industrial academic bureaucratic Goliath can be affected by the combined power of determined individuals and the alternative press. Becoming informed is the first step to empowerment.

USGS Scientist Studies Causes of Anomalous U.S. Hurricane Landfall Count in 2004

A U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist at the Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies in St. Petersburg, FL, has examined climate features likely to have influenced this year's record number of U.S. hurricane landfalls. In an article published as the cover story in the December 14, 2004, issue of Eos (American Geophysical Union Transactions, v. 85, no. 50), Brian Bossak, a USGS Mendenhall Postdoctoral Fellow, concluded that overall North Atlantic tropical cyclone activity in 2004 was not excessively high. He found that multiple climate features were juxtaposed in such a way as to encourage both hurricane intensification and a track bringing hurricanes ashore south of the North Carolina State line. The state of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Atlantic sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) supported an active season in terms of the formation of North Atlantic tropical cyclones. In particular, a climate feature known as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) was implicated in influencing the position of the Bermuda High Pressure system, thereby steering hurricanes on a more southerly track toward the Southeastern United States instead of a track curving out to sea, as has been the case in the past several years. Furthermore, climate features affecting vertical wind shear over tropical regions were favorable for hurricane intensification, explaining the abnormal number of major hurricanes that made landfall in 2004. Bossak is currently completing work on his pilot project at the USGS, the Coastal Impact Assessment Tool (CIAT), and conducting a statistical verification of observed climate influences on U.S. hurricanes.

FLOODING AS A MEANS OF SOCIAL ENGINEERING

FROM: http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1695.cfm 

ALSO SEE: http://www.greatdreams.com/weather/massive_floods_in_history.htm 

From 1927 to 1993, and in 1995, 1997, and 1998, the entire Midwest area along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers experienced tremendous losses because of flooding. In Part 2 of this series, we demonstrated how a flooding so rare as to only occur naturally every 500 years could be caused by the combination of GWEN and HAARP towers.

The 20th Century has seen unprecedented flooding, especially in this specific geographical area. Since the Biodiversity map is thoroughly pocketed with areas of Core Reserves [no human activity] and Buffer Zones that are highly regulated, we should expect that a lot of Social Engineering would be planned for this area.

BILLION DOLLAR WEATHER DISASTERS THRU 2001

As we demonstrated in Part 2, control of hurricanes has been possible for some time now. We read portions of a Wall Street Journal story printed November 13, 1997, in which Malaysia hired a Russian weather modification company to create a typhoon [hurricane] and steer it closely enough to the Malaysian cities so that the winds would blow the haze away, but not so closely to shore that damage would occur. The Russian company then steered the typhoon away out to the open sea, where they dissipated it.

For the technology of creating, steering, and dissipating hurricanes to be so advanced in 1997 as to be this routine and routinely available, we know that the beginning of this technology had to occur 20-30 years ago. Thus, it is with great interest to note the location of where "Billion Dollar" hurricanes have hit this nation from 1980-2001.

When you compare the dots of hurricane impact on this "Billion Dollar" disaster map to the planned Biodiversity Map, you will shockingly discover that each of these dots makes land at precisely the area designated as a Red Core Reserve [no human activity] or a Yellow Buffer Zone [human activity highly regulated].

Thus, you have to ask a very important question, do you not?

Given our ability to create, steer, control, and dissipate hurricanes, why have we had any of these storms since 1980? Every time a natural hurricane spawns, we could steer it to the open sea and dissipate it so that it caused no damage whatsoever to human settlements or to "human activity".

Therefore, when you understand that the entire emphasis of this upcoming World Summit on Sustainable Development is focused on the "unsustainable" nature of our Industrial Civilization, you will realize that tremendous effort has already been expended to lay the groundwork for someone to someday declare that Mother Gaia simply cannot continue to tolerate and support our current civilization.

Look one final time at this Billion Dollar Weather Disaster Map. This map lists the largest, most damaging, and most expensive weather disasters of the past two decades. A number of noteworthy weather disasters are noted. They are:

1. Hurricanes and Tropical Storms [Tropical Storms bring huge amounts of rain, causing significant flooding]. A "Nor'easter" is depicted hitting New England in 1992. A "Nor'easter" is a hurricane that brings with it significant flooding and strong winds.

2. Floods

3. Severe Weather -- the symbols here are a black funnel cloud of a tornado and a lightening bolt. It is more than interesting to note that the number of tornadoes since 1916 has increased dramatically -- off the charts, actually! In 1916, about 50 tornadoes were noted, climbing to almost 1,400 in 1996

[ http://k12.ocs.ou.edu/teachers/graphics/TorFatalChart.gif , Tornado Fatal Chart]. This increase is a 28 fold increase! Since no one could possibly argue that this increase is "natural", one can only argue that is it "unnatural", i.e., by human agency. Of course, the World Earth Summit people will argue that this increase is simply Mother Gaia's response to the "human activity" pursuant to our unsustainable Industrial Civlization.

4. Fires

5. Heat Wave/Drought

Kerry in Hurricane in Vietnam

August 14, 2004

John Kerry feels the pain of those in the path of Hurricane Charley.

John Kerry told survivors that he too had been in a Hurricane, while George Bush had not. Kerry reported for the first time a secret mission that put him in a Hurricane[*] on his Swift Boat in Vietnam (or maybe Cambodia - he's not sure). The purpose was to put an undercover special forces weatherman as close to the eye as possible, to evaluate the use of Hurricanes[*] as weapons. Kerry said he was personally ordered to this mission by Chuck Colson of the Nixon Administration, just before Christmas, 1968, while recovering from his wounds from Cam Rahn Bay that earned him his first purple heart. Admitting that the use of Hurricanes as weapons of war was a war crime, Kerry said "we all did war crimes, day by day, with the full knowledge of our superiors at all level. So what's the big deal?"

KATRINA AND THE SCALAR WEATHER WARS

Posted By: billym

Date: Monday, 29 August 2005, 11:09 a.m.

Today Cloak and Dagger has linked an article on scalar wave weather engineering by Stefan Grossmann. Of course it references the work of Col. Tom Bearden, the leading western expert on the subject.

Engineering the weather with scalar weapons is done by simply pouring heat into certain regions, and extracting heat (cooling) other regions. In the article Bearden describes how by heating and cooling areas in a rotational pattern the atmosphere can be made to rotate (hurricane). Also, since the power of a hurricane is related to the temperature of the sea at a given point, a hurricane can be increased by simply heating the ocean under it. If you think about, nearly all weather phenomena are the result of differences in temperature between one region and another. The scalar weapons in weather mode are basically giant heaters and coolers controlled from afar and able to target any place on earth with either heat or cold.

According to Bearden the chief weather war mischief makers are the KGB and a consortium of the "Yakuza" and "Aum Shinrikyo" cult, to which the KGB has handed over most of the routine work. Bearden says the West is playing catch-up ball here, but is no longer totally undefended. I am not sure if this "weather war defense" involves HAARP or not. In any case the resulting picture is not pretty.

Slowly but surely Bearden's information is getting out there and people are starting to realize the true terror of the situation. Is the secrecy beginning to break down, like a Louisianna levee? People must demand to be told the truth about scalar weapons. Only once, to my knowledge, has the official U.S. acknowledged these weapons. This was in a statement by Sec. Def. William Cohen which Bearden tirelessly repeats.

"Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations...It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts."

--Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn.

This statement was made over 30 years after Krushchev announced such weapons! At that time no one in the world knew what he was talking about, and generally, they still don't!

Even worse than these weather wars, in my opinion, is the use of scalar weapons to induce earthquakes along fault lines. Bearden is convinced that the KGB/Yakuza has registered a number of longitudinal wave interferometers on the Yellowstone caldera to try to trigger a super eruption.

I suggest reading the whole Grossman article, but here are a few excerpts.

1. The Bush Jr. regime is a hair’s breadth away from collapsing in chaos, infamy and insanity as the Cloakanddagger.de truth radio is about to break the story how G. W. Bush fraud bribed his way into the White House in late 2000. See separate news coverage coming soon.

What happens in such situations is: News diversions are orchestrated in order to take away the public’s attention from the homespun disasters. Such as, a whale strands in the arctic and all the oil-soaked spy-riddled mainstream media babble about stranded whales for days or even weeks until the news about the actual catastrophe at home is forgotten and, for practical purposes, suppressed.

This well-known routine is happening again. As the to-be-covered-up news event (Bush bribed his way into the White House) is so huge, the cover-up ploy is also huge: A scalar-engineered hurricane named Katrina. The shadow government has decided to sacrifice an entire city, New Orleans, to cover up the coming news of bribery and in order to further rig the price of oil.

2. Weather engineering includes the blow-up of small hurricanes into large ones. The technology is zealously denied by so-called meterologists and physicists, but it exists anyhow.

http://www.cheniere.org/video/sovietweathervideo.html 

On this slide we diagrammatically represent the Soviet woodpecker interference grid over the U.S. This grid can easily be used to influence and control the weather, and for over a decade the Soviets have manipulated the weather over the U.S. and other parts of the world.

By the peculiar title of this slide, we wish to call attention to the fact that, in the exothermic mode of scalar interferometry riding on the woodpecker radar signals, each of the woodpecker grid interference cells can act as a little „virtual transmitter.“ It's exactly as if the Soviets had been permitted to enter the U.S. and build thousands of EM transmitters at regular intervals all over the country!

And of course it's even worse. In the endothermic mode, it's as if the Soviets had been permitted to enter the U.S. and build thousands of „cold generators“ all over the U.S. That is, in that mode, each of the „transmitters“ can actually extract electromagnetic energy.

These two modes have enabled the Soviet Union to drastically manipulate the weather at will over the U.S. during the last decade (and similarly, for other places as well.)

(For a full disclosure of the Soviet weather control operations over the U.S., see T. E. Bearden, Soviet Weather Engineering Over North America, 1-hr. videotape, 1955, available from POB 1472, Huntsville, Alabama 35807, $40.00 U.S. postpaid, VHS or BETA format. We will only summarize here.).

Briefly, inside various reference level zeros on the ordinary EM woodpecker carriers, scalar „channels“ are established. Scalar beams, signals, and interferometer pulses and transmissions can be transmitted through these reference channels as if directly through a wire. Phasing, pulse shaping, and Fourier expansion formation of geometric forms are then the key to be used in scalar interferometry through the internal scalar channels of the Soviet woodpecker signals.

By choosing one or more grid cells and using scalar interference there in the exothermic continuous mode, local heating and expansion of the air, and formation of a high pressure area, occurs.

By choosing one or more grid cells and using scalar interference there in the endothermic continuous mode, local cooling and shrinking of the air, and formation of a low pressure area, occurs.

By electromagnetic ''rotation“ of the interfering scalar beams, the hotspots and coldspots can be moved along a desired path and at a desired speed.

By these methods the entire jetstream across the U.S. can be deviated and controlled to a large degree. Moisture can be drawn from the Pacific beyond Southern California and Mexico, and collided over the southern U.S. with extremely cold air brought down from Canada, producing ice storms such as those in and around February 1, 1985.

Violent thunderstorm activity can be induced and directed. By adding „spin“, these same storms can be induced to form extensive tornados.

By sustained weather engineering operations, drought or excessive rain and flooding can be induced in areas of the U.S. as desired. Crops can be destroyed or heavily damaged by severe and unseasonal weather.

If the grid is placed in the ground on scalar EM carriers instead of normal EM carriers (and the woodpecker „radars,“ can switch to, or add, scalar carrier mode whenever they wish), it can be used as an anti-submarine weapon, as we shall see later. It can also be used to cause substantial ocean effects that have drastic consequences on the world's weather -- such as the anomalous El Nino of 1982-83.

By localizing one spot of heating at the top of a thunderstorm anvil, and another spot of cooling at its side, a localized downburst can be created. Our weather satellites have detected just such an anomalous combination heating and cooling of thunderstorm anvils over the U.S. While there may exist natural mechanisms to cause this anomalous dual pattern, it may also be caused by Soviet weather engineering, which can cause either broad-area or highly localized effects.

All these types of weather engineering incidents have been deliberately created over the U.S. by the Soviet Union.

Perhaps the greatest weather effects can be induced by altering some of the large scale normal mechanisms that influence and control our weather. Thus the artificially induced El Nino of 1982-83 was a case in point, causing drastic weather upsets worldwide for a year or more.

The last decade has seen weather so anomalous that it could only occur once in 1200 years by chance. It has not been due to normal chance, but by Soviet weather engineering, particularly since the advent of the Woodpecker transmitter complexes.

ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND FOR THE BRIEFER:

The Woodpecker transmitters can carry scalar components which, in addition to biological strikes, can be used for many other purposes such as to

1. influence and control the weather,

2. deviate the giant jetstreams of the upper atmosphere,

3. detect, track and destroy missiles shortly after launch,

4. detect, track and destroy strategic bombers and other aircraft,

5. attack land and ocean surface targets by large aerial electromagnetic explosions: the EM explosion produces the fireball, the thermal effects, and the blast wave of a nuclear explosion without the nuclear radiation and radioactive fallout contamination;

6. attack surface land and ocean targets by large „cold explosions“, where living things freeze almost instantly, leaving the surface facilities and equipment intact,

7. attack land and ocean surface targets by severe internal electromagnetic disruption, so that all electronics are dudded,

8. attack personnel on land and sea by direct destruction of their nervous systems with an internally induced strong EMP,

9. disrupt the operation of distant facilities, equipment, and personnel or destroy food crops in large areas by severe cold or severe heating, or even startling oscillation between the two.

In addition, the scalar aspects of the Woodpecker transmitters can be beamed through the earth and ocean as surface waves or at a given depth to intersect at a distant region. This mode can be used to

10. cause distant earthquakes in a distant fault zone by depositing energy in the rocks there, increasing the plate stress until slippage occurs at a fault zone,

11. cause large, anomalous rocking of an entire plate or large area, by depositing and extracting energy from alternate areas, causing buckling of the large rock plate,

12. set up an interference grid under the water, so that underwater submarines can be detected, tracked, and destroyed on station and with their missiles still unfired,

13. attack naval vessels and task forces through the water and through their hulls, without warning,

14. attack missile silos and nuclear storage sites „before launch“, directly through the earth itself,

15. initiate the full nuclear explosion of implosion-type nuclear warheads on-board missiles on station,

16. initiate full nuclear explosion of implosion-type nuclear warheads in storage sites and ready reserve,

17. destroy seaborne and ocean-bottom-mounted mines and underwater sensors, even including entire „fields“ of them,

18. detect and destroy hostile torpedoes, ship-to-underwater anti-submarine missiles, and dumped anti-submarine munitions and charges,

19. „pump“ the electrical grounding of distant electrical power distribution and generation systems so that the system catastrophically fails,

20. „pump“ the electrical grounding of distant electrical power systems so that radio and television transmitters, power grids, and wiring complexes in buildings and facilities radiate a desired scalar wave component or signal complex at equipment and personnel.

All in all, the woodpecker transmitter complexes and other associated scalar EM weaponry are most useful in the major missions required in war.

Today, weather engineering is also part of the Pentagon’s military arsenal and is at the command of America’s public enemy Nr. 1, the shadow government.

Basically, the U.S.A. lost the cold war - contrary to all newspaper allegations - against the Soviet Union because of scalar weapons and weather controlling technology. This is one of the key reasons for the multi-trillion dollar Pentagon black budget and secret arms program, namely to catch up in the scalar arms race. The main part of this technology was developed for the Pentagon by Israel and its ultra-secret scalar weapons program and is the reason why the U.S.A. has basically lost its sovereignty to a clique of internationalist scalar terrorists with hyper-tech abilities (such as also demonstrated in the „plane“ deceptions on 9-11-1).

Much fine print would need to be added here to explain the exact meaning of the terms „Israel“ and „Pentagon“ in the foregoing context. The terms are not identical with the alleged constitutional governments of Israel and the U.S.A. Essentially, the body of people involved is one and the same. It has close ties with the international central banking cabal (Bank of England, Vatican/Jesuits, Federal Reserve Bank/Alan Greenspan, AIG/Starr International/Maurice Greenberg, Citibank/David Rockefeller, Carlyle Group, Blackstone Group/Henry Kissinger/Maurice Greenberg/Pete Petersen, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, World Bank, Zionist Neocon cabal, et al., also with alleged Rothschild banking interests involved from the European side). Politically, there is a tight control group with its center being, purportedly, the four: Kissinger, Bush Sr., Hillary Clinton, William Rockefeller-Clinton. In brief, the Bush-Rockefeller Crime Syndicate (if Bill’s family name „Clinton“ is corrected, according to the alleged fatherhood [Winthrop Rockefeller, former Arkansas governor and some say Clinton look-alike], into „Rockefeller“). Many details are omitted here due to time and space restrictions.

Gradually, we are finding out which weaponized horror of Satanic control freaks these many shiploads of money have gone to pay over decades!

3. Category 5 mega-hurricane Katrina bears signature marks of being rigged and magnified using scalar weather engineering. There has been a suspicious increase in frequency of otherwise very rare category 5 hurricanes. Before hurricane Andrew (1992, apparently a time when scalar technology was available) there were only two recorded category 5 hurricanes in the U.S.A. Katrina is actually moe than category 5; it is category 5+ (the scale has no category 6). It originated as a small medium hurricane, but suddenly and inexplicably over the Gulf of Mexico it exploded into a monster of category 5 (allegedly due to the „warm Gulf waters“ that have never behaved this way any time before). Then, the next item of suspicion is the target: New Orleans, shaped like a basin and beneath sea level, also conveniently a center of oil refining for the U.S.A. and located near the Gulf of Mexico oil production.

The mainstream media have turned away from normal news reporting and are hypnotized by the orchestrated mega-hurricane. A well-known pattern of diversion and orchestrated tragedy is once more staged with a chilling routine.

The oil price has risen steeply over $70 dollars a barrel due to the hurricane Katrina news reports. The city is being evacuated, a large volume of domestic American crude oil and gas production has been shut down.

4. The war on the American people is ongoing. 11-22-63, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yugoslavia and 9-11-1 were merely episodes to break the force of the Republic. Traitors are manipulating the events from behind the screen. Vigilant networks of concerned citizens have watched for the usual „mock drills“ as reported recently by Webster G. Tarpley, and have most likely blocked this customary venue for the shadow regime’s orchestrated routine tragedies. The regime is upping the ante by resorting to its secret weapons of stealth and deception in its frantic death fight.

Traitors must be exposed to the light.

That is where they shrivel like vampires.

Their condign punishment is death.

The tree of liberty must be watered

from time to time with the blood of tyrants!

Hi Dee

I hope you are well, we see a lot of flood footage here as well as looting happening in USA, I was just again looking at the footage of weather manipulation that was done here a couple of years ago because we live in semi desert conditions and need rain, so it was created by the Russians a couple of years back where it can be manipulated to cause severe storms, but are amazed at the amount of blacks you have I see on television .

As I am sitting in South Africa it is no surprise to me at all, this looting stuff as the blacks here now, do it almost everyday and there is nothing one can do to stop it , here it is called AFFIRMATIVE SHOPPING see they are just correcting the wrongs of the past?? Then I ask what past? as we always fed these people anyway, This is what they call survival of the most crooked, ya have to steal da guns first then defend the brothers looting the stores and if the cops or military interfere you snipe them as well one by one, from a group of people not single on your own, as this way if da cops retaliate they kill innocent bystanders as it is called, these Africans are quite innovative when it comes to this, you will also see this happen in the next 3-4 days and if emergency aid arrive they will hijack the food and kill for it just feeding themselves and stuff the rest, They should die of hunger, or turn to cannibalism.

Smile at least they will eat each other they don’t like white meat, for them its despicable, The Russian weather manipulators is creating these storms in these areas nowadays.

I said weather manipulation because this was a manmade storm as I could see the grids on satellite and the lines in the skies, Yes So its true it is done and its called Scalar waves and Technology used by the Russians, and was developed in the 1920's and ignored by the west, we just looked at Electronic Cold Fusion and it stopped there, the Russian continued this technology and it turned into Scalar Electronics and the Tropical storms are created from this Scalar Tech. So You thought the cold war was over and it just began with crazy Russian scientists, then they stuff up the weather systems as like Katrina, Yes blame Bush he wants America in Chaos so in the process of people confused by this tyranny of the storm he in meantime move American Gold to Queen Mother in Britain whilst no one is watching, the storm occupies peoples minds, this is done to distract then Rob the people and change the laws in America as a FEMA SYSTEM they will start in about a week to capture looters and place them in this FEMA Camps they build across USA

I don’t like to be a doomsayer but be prepared for the worst, JUST TYPE IN GOOGLE THIS

( Sovietweather mpg Tom Bearden)

You will have to search this MPG I have it but the video file is 190mb so impossible to mail (Manipulating the fingers of god)

YOU WILL SEE A LOT AND YOU WILL BE PISSED OFF WITH YOUR GOV AND SYSTEM after this for not being prepared

YOU ARE ON THE BRINK OF THE THIRD WORLD WAR AND YOU WILL ALSO SEE PLANTED NUCLEAR DEVICES GOING OFF SOON AMIDST THIS CHAOS and Flooding also on the east coast.

Be prepared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

CHEMTRAILS: SUPPRESSING HUMAN EVOLUTION--'If governments are not spraying out of benevolence and altruism, then they are spraying the population to protect themselves. When threatened, one attacks the source of that threat. And what are chemtrails ultimately attacking? Our cellular DNA. Therefore, there is something about our DNA that threatens the power structure. Considering chemtrails are a recent phenomenon, the threat must also be recent. If a citizen's DNA was non threatening before, but is now, then it must have fundamentally changed its structure recently. This fits the definition of 'mutation.' '

CHEMTRAIL PROTEST GROWS--Protest against so-called chemtrails that are proliferating across the U.S. is growing, with New Mexico the latest state to report protest activity. The chemtrails are unexplained phenomenon that appears similar to the contrails of jet aircraft. But they don't follow airline traffic routes or flight patterns, often showing up in grid patterns.

CHEMTRAILS AND DISINFORMATION--"As this "event" gets closer, we are seeing a sharp increase in what I can only call disinformation. I think that the expected curve of public awareness was carefully calculated, with the conclusion that not enough people would wake up to what is happening before it was too late. However, with the explosive growth of the Internet chemtrail awareness is reaching "critical mass" much too soon. There are now too many people who can say, "We know what you are doing, and when this is all over you will pay." At the same time a significant disinformation campaign is underway here and in Europe to prevent this, and keep as many people as possible confused about what is really happening."

CHEMTRAIL CENTRAL

CHEMTRAILS U,K.--Much has been reported on the chemtrail scenario around the globe, especially the USA, however, little has been illustrated on the situation in the UK.A few years ago, and little publicised, the UK was subjected to massive chemtrailing, and hardly anyone took any notice! Many of you scanning these pages will be familiar to the scenario, and later a number of links will be placed in. This page for the time being is for reference purposes, where people may link to in order to see for themselves EXACTLY what IS going down

CHEMTRAIL BREAKTHROUGH VIA BLACKLIGHT?

CHEMTRAIL BREAKTHROUGH?--The debunkers are silenced -- This is important new proof of the chemtrail spraying effort. It now appears that no matter where you live, you can see the tiny "micro-filaments" when viewed under a simple black-light! Confirmation from all over the U.S. has them clinging to clothes, skin, plants, you name it. They're everywhere.

LOOK! UP IN THE SKY! IT'S A PATHOGENIC POISON!--Nobody knows, for sure, just yet. Chemtrails appear, at first, to be regular airplane contrails, thin lines of wispy white vapour that follow a jet,s path. But, whereas contrails usually fade within a few minutes of an airplane,s passing, chemtrails diffuse and spread over the sky. Chemtrails have been reported in hundreds of North American cities over the past two years, and, most alarmingly, they appear to cause respiratory illnesses in those with weakened immune systems.

The Depopulation Agenda Connected to the COVID-19 Lockdowns

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Monday, September 21, 2020 - 12:07.

Many people has noticed that dating, courtship, marriage and parenting levels have dropped to historic lows.  Thanks to Ted Turner who has made it clear what the globalists truly desire, which is extreme negative population growth. In fact, the aware among us know that a 90% depopulation of the population is the ultimate goal .

There are hard kill methods eg war) and there are soft kill methods (eg Chromium 6 in the water) and there is spermageddon and this is where the current lack of dating and mating comes into play. In act, the world has clear data that sperm counts are way down and it has been this way since at least 2010 and was full discovered in the scientific community with overwhelming evidence in 2015.

This is where COVID-19 lockdown restrictions come into play. Beside curtailing Christian religious practices, the apparent number one goal of the lockdown was to prevent close contact, in a potential dating/mating situation in public places where people ordinarily meet and eventually mate. Here is what America typically witnessed in the lockdown:

1. Big box stores remain open while small business competitors fail (the goal was the economic destruction of the economy of the United States, while preparing for a corporate oligarchy takeover when the Democrats (Blosheviks take over).

2. Following the economic and religious discrimination, there are no institutions in the lockdowns that have been discriminated against more than bars and health clubs. Both are hotspots for meeting and dating. And of course forcing people to where a worthless facemask exacerbates the "social distance" which inhibits meeting and developing intimacy. When one considers the published depopuatlion goals of the global elite there is no question that this mass contributor to depopulation in play and it was deliberate. Further, the shutting down of healthclubs also accomplishes another goal related to depopulation as the practice results in less healthy people with weakened immune systems resulting from unnatural isolation. I strongly contend that these were some of the primary goals all along in this plandemic! My belief is bolstered by the fact that the sperm counts of males, as pointed out in an earlier paragraph has been ongoing for sometime. The result of both phenomenon, the lockdown effects and lower sperm counts, is intentional and is designed to significantly reduce the population of the Kissenger-labeled "useless eaters".

This is a striking finding that has profound implications for humanity. For this reason and many other reasons, some questioning if this is the last generation of humans that will inhabit the planet.

Let's examine the subject of reduced sperm counts.

What the Data Tells Us

Research on men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand found that there respective sperm counts are plunging, according to several recent studies. Among the subjects from these recent studies there has been a collective average of over a 50% decline in sperm concentration and a 60% decline in total sperm count over a nearly 40-year period ending in 2015. One study published in the Journal of Human Reproduction, found that the trend was peaking. This is very startling and suggests that we have not seen anything close to the apex.

Extraneous Factors

The globalists have tried to censor the Carlson study which was a meta-analysis of 61 studies that found the same emerging trend as far back as 1992. The most striking variable about the sperm studies is that even the quality, not just the quantity of the sperm is being impacted. The attack on human reproductivity is not confined to the quality and quantity of sperm counts.

Humanity is also attack from a social and cultural perspective as well. Kindergarten children in Sweden are not allowed to use the pronouns of "he" and "she". Boys can and will marry boys. The same is true for girls. Boys are often taught to wear dresses. And it is not just Sweden. In Canada if one addresses another, even innocently, by a gender pronoun not preferred by the person being spoken to, the offender can be sent to jail. In America, gay marriage (ie one that does not produce offspring) is legal. There are emerging arguments to wrong-headed academia types are embracing the concepts of 97 genders. These same people engage in scathing rebukes of anything resembling masculinity. Homosexuality is glorified in the media, while heterosexual relations are maligned in nearly every stereotype. Before COVID-19, there is a clearly an agenda of depopulation at work that is both long-term and consistent in its agenda in which non-bearing fertility relationship are glorified, which the traditional ones are not.

There are two intentions here. One, is to divide and conquer by forcing everyone to take a side. Two, the real objective is limit productivity as much as possible. Is it working? A nation needs a 2.1 birthrate to maintain itself. Italy has 1.2, France is 1.5 as is Germany as is most of the EU. What about America? The birthrate has fallen to 1.77. As technocracy expert, Patrick Wood states, "No nation has ever recovered from falling below 1.8. The entire G20 is well below 1.8! To prevent too dramatic of a decline in a nation's functionality that is experiencing a dramatic lessening of the birth rate, millions of immigrants are brought to fill jobs. And over the next decade, AI will provide the robots that will take the place of 3/4ths of humanity in the workplace. As an aside, the immigration issue also serves to "deculturize" a nation from its traditional beliefs (eg one man, one woman, several children), democracy, civil liberties, etc. Have you ever noticed that the G20 is not importing people from anywhere else but violent 3rd world nations? This strategy will erase national boundaries and the true New World Order will be born. Forced immigration, fast kill, slow kill, and spermageddon all are working for the same goal, the eradication of man in God's likeness. David Knight and Sharon Gilbert fully captured this notion.

Two Outstanding Transhumanist Presentations

In 2018 at the Branson GENSIX Conference, I watched David Knight and Sharon Gilbert make their respective presentations on transhumanism. Although both presentations were distinct, there conclusions were the same. There is a decided plot to do away with humans as we know it. From HG Wells to Huxley, the intent is the same, create an "enhanced" human being. Many globalists call this the singularity where man is mixed with machine and mankind as we know it will cease to exist. This article is not going to explore all of the details associated with this satanic conspiracy to wipe out God's creation. Let's just say, that we are on the verge of modern societal breakdown with the plunging birth rates which correspond with spermageddon in terms of time frame and COVID-19 was simply an adjunct to the depopulation efforsts of the globalists.

Conclusion This enhanced technology (ie transhumanism) is only for the elite and the chosen few from the lower social classes. The rest are going die from soft kill, slow kill, or spermageddon resulting reductions in live births.

World War III will enhance the process. Watch out for Syria, where Trump just dispatched troops to, and the South China Sea is still a candidate for World War III as well.

If your pastors are not discussing this plot against God almighty, then preach this doctrine and profess these facts for them. David Knight said we do not have 15 years. I feel we are already on the fast track to destruction. For humanity to survive, we all have to act. The first step in that process is to bring awareness of the problem. Once we convince enough, then meaningful action can pack a real punch.

Covid-19 and depopulation? The connections are unmistakable, and we didn't even discuss the impact of mandatory vaccines on the human life-span....

CAN’T MAKE THIS UP: Twitter Locks TV Host Steve Malzberg’s Account After Linking to Video of Groper Biden for “Violation of Child Sexual Exploitation Policy”

By Joe Hoft Published September 20, 2020 at 6:26pm 185 Comments

You can’t make this up – Twitter freezes RT Host Steve Malzberg from platform for sharing video of Joe Biden touching children by claiming it is a “Violation of Child Sexual Exploitation Policy”.

Steve Malzberg reported on RT TV that he was banned by Twitter. The reason is shocking. Malzberg shares:

They locked my account, @SteveMTalk, because it violated their ‘Child Sexual Exploitation Policy’? What, I asked aloud. All I did was post a link to this, now keep your eyes on Biden. (shows video)

Get the idea? Now this is either innocent grandfather affection, or it’s child sexual exploitation as Twitter says it is. So Twitter has decided to protect Joe Biden by not letting you see that video on Twitter by calling it “Child Sexual Exploitation”. Really? Wow. Creepy Uncle Joe should never be allowed near anyone’s children – even in their parents’ presence.

Sedition Is The New Normal

How far gone is this Republic?

Jon Bowne | Infowars.com - September 20, 2020

Attorney General Bill Barr told federal prosecutors to consider charging rioters and others who had committed violent crimes at protests in recent months with sedition.

Sedition, which is the act of inciting revolt or violence against a lawful authority with the goal of destroying or overthrowing it, is serious felony punishable by fines and up to 20 years in prison. It’s exactly what has happened at police stations and courthouses across the Country for months. Of course, the mockingbird media found Barr’s suggestion preposterous.

And liberal water-carrier FBI Director Wray argued on the side of the treasonous scum terrorizing our cities and its citizens with a death toll of at least 30, roughly 800 Police officers injured, and approximately $2 billion in damage in its wake during a pandemic.

Sedition is a cancer. And its metastatic path winds up in unexpected places. Sedition can also be described as subversion of a constitution. There are many in this Country who have openly done that while suffering from self-inflicted Trump Derangement Syndrome.

What we’re seeing isn’t a redress of grievances. Criticism of the government is a part of our First Amendment. What’s actually happening now is that concerned Americans are being punished for speaking out against those with the power to carry out subversion of our Constitution – people like Nancy Pelosi or Kamala Harris.

So when the Attorney General and the Executive office are largely criticized for pointing out the treason, you have to ask yourself: How far gone is this Republic?

US Christians increasingly departing from core truths of Christian worldview, survey finds

By Brandon Showalter, CP Reporter CP Current Page: U.S. | Sunday, August 09, 2020

A new survey shows that the majority of Americans no longer believe that Jesus is the path to salvation and instead believe that being a good person is sufficient.

As part of the ongoing release of the Arizona Christian University-based Cultural Research Center's American Worldview Inventory, the latest findings — exploring perceptions of sin and salvation — from George Barna, the group's director, show that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that having some kind of faith is more important than the particular faith with which someone aligns.

Sixty-eight percent who embrace that notion identify as Christians, including 56% of self-described evangelicals and 62% of those who identify as Pentecostals. Sixty-seven percent of mainline Protestants and 77% of Catholics also embraced that idea, the findings show.

Slightly over half of Christian respondents said they believe someone can attain salvation by "being or doing good," a figure that includes, 46% of Pentecostals, 44% of mainline Protestants, 41% of evangelicals, and 70% of Catholics.

In addition to the viewpoint that eternal salvation can be earned, survey results show that 58% of Americans believe that no absolute moral truth exists and that the basis of truth are factors or sources other than God. Seventy-seven percent said that right and wrong is determined by factors other than the Bible. Fifty-nine percent said that the Bible is not God's authoritative and true Word and 69% said people are basically good.

“If you look at some of the dominant elements in the American mind and heart today, as illuminated by the Inventory, most people believe that the purpose of life is feeling good about yourself," Barna said in a statement sent to The Christian Post.

"Most people contend that all faiths are of equal value, that entry into God’s eternal presence is determined by one’s personal means of choice and that there are no absolutes to guide or grow us morally.

“That philosophy of life contradicts a fundamental basis of what may be the two most significant documents to the longevity and success of America – the Bible and the Constitution of the United States. Those documents agree that this nation will only be healthy and fruitful if it is populated by moral people. By abandoning our moral standards and traditions, and replacing them with inclusive and conditional preferences, we're losing the foundations that have enabled the ‘American experiment’ to succeed for more than two centuries. We can only hope that our critical moral institutions — particularly the family and the church — will wake up and help the nation to get back on track.”

The results are from a January 2020 survey among a nationally representative sample of 2,000 adults, with a maximum sampling error of approximately plus or minus 2 percentage points, based on the 95% confidence interval. The comprehensive research has documented the profound shifts in worldview among Americans in recent decades. Whereas 30 years ago, people spent considerable time thinking and learning about God, much of the current culture has become increasingly self-focused, Barna previously noted. The release of the AWVI research was going to coincide with the launch of the Cultural Research Center at ACU in Glendale, Arizona, in March but the center's formal event had to be delayed until the fall due to COVID-19.

China, India fire fueled by Pakistan Belt and Road

The $87 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor aims to facilitate bilateral trade but is riling India in the process

by FM Shakil September 14, 2020

PESHAWAR – Pakistan’s army and Chinese companies are in big business lockstep in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a US$87 billion plan to build ports, roads, railways and power plants to facilitate trade, spur growth and consolidate power over geopolitically contested lands.

The scheme, designed to span Pakistan’s length and breadth, has been reinvigorated since the Covid-19 pandemic as Beijing doubles down in pursuit of strategic alternatives for its trade and energy flows amid rising tensions with the United States and its allies.

In the past two months, amid the global pandemic’s economic devastation, Beijing has committed an additional $11 billion to the CPEC. Yet many of the projects are situated in geopolitically sensitive areas disputed with India, adding big-money fuel to the Asian giants’ intensifying Himalayan standoff.

China has big designs for Pakistan and the CPEC. The China-backed Gwadar Port in volatile Balochistan province aims specifically to give China access to the Indian Ocean, a presence that will help to protect and facilitate its trade and fuel shipments with the Middle East.

Some local reports have suggested while authorities deny that Pakistan has quietly agreed to provide China’s military with basing rights in Gwadar and Gilgit Baltistan, the latter a territory near its Himalayan standoff with India. China is fortifying these strategic investments by working more directly with the powerful military and its affiliated business interests. The army’s construction arm, Frontier Works Organization (FWO), has secured many CPEC-related contracts.

Crucially, those include the reconstruction and upgrading of the Karakoram Highway linking the Chinese city of Kashgar in remote western Xinjiang province with Pakistan’s Punjab at an estimated cost of $2 billion. The road has strategic implications for China and its vision of establishing an alternative trade route. However, critics say many of the deals were cinched without competitive bidding that has boxed out local private builders in favor of military interests.

The government’s Planning and Development Division, which previously had chief responsibility for the CPEC, was sidelined with last year’s nomination of retired Lieutenant General Asim Saleem Bajwa as chairman of the newly created CPEC Authority, established via a presidential ordinance last year.

China’s renewed investment in the scheme marks a significant turn, one that is both contributing to rising regional tensions and giving Pakistan post-pandemic economic hope. The CPEC had been in the doldrums ever since Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) ascended to power in 2018. Amid concerns that BRI projects represent debt traps, Khan sought a “reset and realignment” of the CPEC to renegotiate its financial and other terms. But that bid at renegotiation has mostly failed as the military and its affiliated interests have taken more direct control of the projects.

At the beginning of the CPEC’s second phase in late June this year, two hydropower projects – Azad Pattan Hydel power Project and Kohala Hydel Power Project – in Pakistan-administered Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan were inaugurated with a price tag of $3.9 billion. China-based power companies, namely China Three Gorges (CTG) Corporation and Power Universal Co Ltd, took 80% stakes in the projects. The remaining 20% stakes have been subcontracted to FWO and Laraib Group, a local renewable energy firm, sources told Asia Times.

At the same time, Prime Minister Khan inaugurated construction of the contentious Diamer-Bhasha Dam in the disputed Gilgit-Baltistan region bordering on India. Although the dam is not a CPEC project, the bulk of the investment is coming from Beijing. Touted as the biggest dam in Pakistan’s history, it is being built on the Indus River in northern Pakistan at a cost of $8.5 billion. Chinese state enterprise China Power and FWO are jointly executing the venture, which is expected to add around 4,500 MW of electricity to the national grid. Earlier, the World Bank declined to finance the project because it is situated in disputed territory.

The Diamer-Bhasa dam, critics and observers say, will give China cause to bring People’s Liberation Army troops near or even in Gilgit-Baltistan, strengthening Pakistan’s military vis-à-vis India. Some analysts claim that Beijing could be one step away from creating a formal military base in Pakistan.

Michael Kugelman, deputy director at the Asia program of the US-based Wilson Center, was quoted in media reports saying that growing Chinese investments in Pakistan-administered Kashmir are a deliberate blow to India. “These moves will bring one more tension point to an India-China relationship that is already more strained now than it has been for several decades,” he said.

FWO also has a lead role in the construction and rehabilitation of a 1,150 kilometer-long road linking the Gwadar port in Balochistan with other parts of the country, part of a $11 billion government infrastructure-building scheme. The projects are be financed through concessionary lending from the Exim Bank of China and the China Development Bank. The terms of the agreement, including in regard to long-term upkeep and repairs, have not been made public.

Critics are already raising questions about the road’s toll collection, which is currently handled by FWO. They claim that the national government’s exchequer will receive scant, if any, revenue from the tolls even though FWO has no responsibility to invest in or upkeep the road network. FWO also secured a $10.9 billion contract for the Peshawar Model City Township and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa-China Investment Plan (KPCIP), which will facilitate the construction of industrial park networks in the province. The contract includes construction of three hydropower plants in Chitral, a cement plant in Haripur and a state-of-the-art oil refinery at Karak.

A report compiled by the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) on the “Competition Assessment of the Road Construction Sector” shows that FWO is involved in the construction of approximately 13,000 kilometers of road infrastructure around the country, with over 50,000 employees mostly from the armed forces.

Critics say FWO enjoys undue competitive advantages through state-granted preferential tax holidays, exemptions from providing bid securities and security deposits on won contracts, even though such exemptions are allowed by law for foreign-funded projects.

“From a competition perspective, these exemptions distort the level playing field in the sector by giving SOEs like FWO a significant cost advantage over other private sector competitors in the bidding process,” the report added. But that’s par for the course under Khan’s military-influenced civilian administration, analysts and observers say.

As Ayesha Siddiqa, a London-based Pakistani researcher puts it: “the present political setup in Pakistan is a hybrid martial law,” with all strategic government functions run by serving or retired generals.

Because the military’s role is discernible across industries and sectors ranging from finance, construction, railways, aviation, industry and telecoms, China arguably had little choice but to engage and pay the armed forces in pursuit of its BRI and other strategic interests in the country.

China, Indonesia sea dispute hot and getting hotter

John Mcbeth The Frontier Post / September 16, 2020

Chinese Coast Guard (CCG) cutter 5204 has become such a familiar sight inside and on the fringes of Indonesia’s 200-nautical-mile Economic Exclusion Zone (EEZ) that it is now suspected of trying to stake out the limits of Beijing’s nine-dotted line of historically claimed sovereignty over the South China Sea.

The Indonesian government issued a formal protest to Chinese ambassador Xiao Qian over the latest intrusion on September 12, in which the Indonesian Maritime Security Agency (BAKAMLA) said the Chinese used the specific term “nine-dash line” in radio messages with an Indonesian patrol vessel.

While China recognizes Indonesian sovereignty over its northernmost Natuna archipelago, it has always refused to provide the exact coordinates of the nine-dash line, a broad tongue-shaped swathe of the South China Sea extending into the North Natuna Sea.

The latest incident suggests that Jakarta may sooner or later have to confront the fact that China is now seeking to lay down markers in claiming traditional fishing rights inside Indonesian waters in a clear breach of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

In many locations, the CCG/People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy are trying to normalize the presence of their ships and then eventually move into enforcing their fishing rights and the nine-dash line,” says one naval analyst who requested anonymity.

Although not included among ships listed in the CCG fleet, 5204 is a 2,700-ton Zhaojun-Class cutter which normally plies between the Chinese-occupied Spratly islands and the Vanguard Bank, the westernmost reef of the disputed island group known for its oil and gas reserves.

Last January, it was also one of three Chinese cutters which intruded 100 kilometers into Indonesian waters in a large-scale incursion that caused Indonesia to scramble F-16 jets from Pekanbaru, southern Sumatra, and dispatch eight naval vessels to the scene.

Since then, the cutter is believed to have made several other intrusions after switching off its automatic identification system (AIS) for up to 36 hours as it ventured close to the maritime border, which lies about 70 kilometers south of Vanguard Bank.

The difference this time is it kept its transponder activated, which as the analyst explained, “means they want you to know.” It also took two days to return to international waters after it was intercepted by an Indonesian patrol vessel.

In its most forthright statement so far, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman told reporters at the height of the January stand-off: “Whether the Indonesian side accepts it or not, nothing will change the fact that China has rights and interests over the relevant waters.”

Some regional analysts believe China has stepped up it’s posturing more recently to counter what it sees as US President Donald Trump administration’s aggression, underlined by US naval deployments and hawkish statements from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Pompeo told last week’s East Asia Foreign Ministers summit that Beijing had no respect for democracy in the region and called on the region’s nations to fight Chinese domination and cut business ties with Chinese companies with interests in the South China Sea.

Speaking at the same online meeting, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi denied that Beijing claimed all the waters within the nine-dash line as internal and territorial waters, calling it a “deliberate confusion of concepts and a distortion of China’s position.”

But he prefaced his statement by asserting that China has “sufficient historical and legal basis for its sovereignty and sovereign rights over the South China Sea,” claiming that under UNCLOS the “historic rights of countries should be respected.”

Four years ago, in a case brought by the Philippine government, an arbitral tribunal convened under a provision in the UNCLOS ruled that China has no legal basis to claim historic rights within its nine-dash line. Beijing rejected the ruling, which lacked an enforcement mechanism.

One noteworthy development was Wang’s support for “actively advancing” the long-delayed maritime Code of Conduct with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which aims to prevent armed clashes in the South China Sea.

“China persists in advocating ‘shelving disputes and developing together’ and is willing to pay attention to the energy needs of coastal countries under this framework and seek win-win and multi-win results,” he said.

Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi used the East Asian conference to warn the US and China, as she has previously, not to involve Indonesia and its Southeast Asian neighbors in their competition in the South China Sea.

Coordinating Minister for Political Legal and Security Affairs Mahfud MD has said Indonesia will never be drawn into negotiations over its sovereign rights to waters north of the Natuna archipelago, which is part of the country’s Riau province.

Marsudi and other senior officials also continue to insist there is no overlapping jurisdictions with China and that Indonesia has never recognized the nine-dash line, which first appeared in a map published by the Republic of China in 1947.

Unlike Malaysia and the Philippines, both claimants to the Spratly islands, Indonesia has taken a robust approach to protecting its maritime boundary with four Navy frigates and two Bakamla and Fisheries Ministry vessels patrolling the country’s northern approaches.

The Pekanbaru-based F-16s now conduct regular patrols over the Natunas. So do Boeing 737 and CN-235 maritime reconnaissance aircraft, flying out of Makassar in South Sulawesi, and a squadron of Israeli-made drones based in West Kalimantan.

Taiwan military says it has right to counterattack amid China threats

By Yimou Lee   4 Min Read

TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan said on Monday its armed forces have the right to self-defence and counterattack amid “harassment and threats”, in an apparent warning to China, which last week sent numerous jets across the mid-line of the sensitive Taiwan Strait. Tensions have sharply spiked in recent months between Taipei and Beijing, which claims democratically-run Taiwan as its own territory, to be taken by force if needed.

Chinese aircraft crossed the mid-line to enter the island’s air defence identification zone on Friday and Saturday, prompting Taiwan to scramble jets to intercept them, and President Tsai Ing-wen to call China a threat to the region.

Taiwan’s defence ministry said it had “clearly defined” procedures for a first response amid “high frequency of harassment and threats from the enemy’s warships and aircraft this year”.

It said Taiwan had the right to “self-defence and to counterattack” and followed the guideline of “no escalation of conflict and no triggering incidents”. Taiwan would not provoke, but it was also “not afraid of the enemy”, it added.

MID-LINE “DOES NOT EXIST”

Taiwanese and Chinese combat aircraft normally observe the mid-line of the Taiwan Strait and do not cross it, although there is no official agreement between Taipei and Beijing on doing so, and the rule is observed unofficially.

Taiwan is an inseparable part of Chinese territory,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told reporters in Beijing. “The so-called mid-line of the Strait does not exist.” Since 2016 Taiwan has reported only five Chinese incursions across the line, including the two last week.

Late on Monday, Taiwan’s Defence Ministry reported two Chinese anti-submarine aircraft had flown into Taiwan’s air defence identification zone - but not over the mid-line - to the island’s southwest, and were warned away by Taiwanese fighters.

The drills came as Beijing expressed anger at the visit of a senior U.S. official to Taipei.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday accused Beijing of bluster when asked about the Chinese activity. A senior Trump administration official on Monday said the Chinese aircraft movements were “consistent with past Chinese behavior” during heightened tensions and appeared more a reaction to Taiwan domestic politics. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Washington did not believe China was seeking to escalate into a military confrontation.

On Monday, the official China Daily newspaper said the United States was trying to use Taiwan to contain China but nobody should underestimate its determination to assert its sovereignty over the island.

The U.S. administration should not be blinkered in its desperation to contain the peaceful rise of China and indulge in the U.S. addiction to its hegemony,” it said in an editorial.

China has been angered by stepped-up U.S. support for Taiwan, including two visits by top officials, one in August by Health Secretary Alex Azar and the other last week by Keith Krach, undersecretary of state for economic affairs.

The United States, which has no diplomatic ties with the island but is its strongest backer, also plans new arms sales to Taiwan.

China air force video appears to show simulated attack on U.S. base on Guam

By Reuters Staff 3 Min Read

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s air force has released a video showing nuclear-capable H-6 bombers carrying out a simulated attack on what appears to be Andersen Air Force Base on the U.S. Pacific island of Guam, as regional tensions rise. The video, released on Saturday on the People’s Liberation Army Air Force Weibo account, came as China carried out a second day of drills near Chinese-claimed Taiwan, to express anger at the visit of a senior U.S. State Department official to Taipei.

Guam is home to major U.S. military facilities, including the air base, which would be key to responding to any conflict in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Chinese air force’s two minute and 15 second video, set to solemn, dramatic music like a trailer for a Hollywood movie, shows H-6 bombers taking off from a desert base. The video is called “The god of war H-6K goes on the attack!”

Halfway through, a pilot presses a button and looses off a missile at an unidentified seaside runway. The missile homes in on the runway, a satellite image of which is shown that looks exactly like the layout of Andersen.

The music suddenly stops as images of the ground shaking appear, following by aerial views of an explosion.

We are the defenders of the motherland’s aerial security; we have the confidence and ability to always defend the security of the motherland’s skies,” the air force wrote in a brief description for the video.

Neither China’s defence ministry nor U.S. Indo-Pacific Command immediately responded to requests for comment on the video. Collin Koh, a research fellow at Singapore’s Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies, said the video was aimed at highlighting China’s growing prowess in long-range power projection.

The video is meant to warn the Americans that even supposedly safe, rearward positions such as Guam may come under threat when conflicts over regional flashpoints, be it Taiwan or South China Sea, erupt,” he said.

The H-6 has been involved in multiple Chinese flights around and near Taiwan, according to Taiwan’s air force, including those last week.

The H-6K is the latest model of the bomber, which is based on the 1950s vintage Soviet Tu-16. On Monday, China’s Eastern Theatre Command, which would be in charge of an attack on Taiwan, released a propaganda video of its own, called “what if war broke out today?”, showing soldiers running in wooded hills and ballistic missiles launching.

“Motherland, I swear I will fight for you until my death!” large golden Chinese characters read at the end of the montage as explosions go off in the background.

America Has Been Cast Into A Dystopian Horror Movie And If Democrats Have Their Way, The Worst Is Yet To Come

- Western Nations Across The Planet Are Falling To 'Coronavirus Tyranny'

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die  September 21, 2020

While Covid-19 has largely fallen out of the front page main headlines of many mainstream media outlets with the buildup to November 3rd here and the fight for the next US Supreme Court Justice gobbling up much of their top billing, we absolutely have to keep our eyes on this so-called 'planned-demic' with one so-called 'Western nation' after another seeing their 'liberties' falling to 'coronavirus tyranny'.

With a supercomputer now deciding the politics of Australians, where the wealth and liberties of millions are being plundered, while a new pre-crime law would give Australian authorities the power to arrest 'Covid-19 conspiracy theorists' who go against what the country dictates if police there merely THINK that a person MIGHT commit a crime (such as not wearing a mask) in the future, Zero Hedge reports:

"If there is one thing that terrifies increasingly tyrannical governments, it’s a loss of control of the narrative, which is why the Australian government is getting a jump start on curbing any so-called “conspiracy theorists” daring to spread information that questions the fear-mongering being used to keep Aussie citizens under lock and key.”

And while such moves being made by formerly free nations reminds many of what's already happened in Communist China, where people were welded inside of their own homes merely if other residents of their apartment complexes had tested positive for the virus, we don't have to look too far here in America to see some of the same kinds of moves being made.

As Paul Joseph Watson reported in this recent story over at Summit News, while Australia has become the most authoritarian state in the developed world when it comes to the draconian enforcement of COVID rules, other 'formerly free' Western nations aren't too far behind. From Watson's story before we continue.:

A draconian new coronavirus law could give Australian authorities the power to arrest coronavirus “conspiracy theorists” if it’s thought they may commit a crime in the future.

Yes, really.  The new COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) bill, which is being debated in the Victoria State Parliament this week, will give local authorities the power to detain people who refuse to self-isolate as well as “conspiracy theorists” and anyone deemed to be at risk of spreading COVID-19 negligently.

A government spokesman told the Age that the measures “could be applied to conspiracy theorists who refuse to self-isolate or to severely drug-affected or mentally impaired people.”  Those detained will be held in quarantine facilities.

So with what is happening now in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Canada and other Western nations a very loud and clear warning to Americans, the mad-rush which Bill Gates and the globalists are now taking to develop a 'one-shot-to-rule-them-all' Covid-19 vaccine is just one of the things we should all be keeping our eye upon as an incredible timeline of events unfolds between now and January 2021. As Mike Adams over at Natural News had pointed out in this story, between this 'pandemic' and the vaccines that are being created to 'deal with it', the sudden death of RBG casting SCOTUS into disarray, our election day just over a month away and a 4-year-long Democrat insurrection that has been pushed on by politicians in Washington DC, sending all of our enemies overseas a very bad message about how America deals with sedition, no one knows how this will all play out in the long run.

Warning that Democrats will NEVER concede this election, even if President Trump is winning by hundreds of votes in the Electoral college on election night, as we'd pointed out in this September 20th ANP story titled "As The Clock Ticks Down, This Nuclear Election Script Has Been Written And Is About To Be Unleashed Upon America, With Nothing Less 'Total Chaos' The Democrat End-Game If They Don't Win", imagine a contested election that goes to SCOTUS and a 4-4 tie emerges. What happens then?

With Adams also warning of the absolute madness we're sure to see coming from Democrats in the coming weeks and months as the Supreme Court battle heats up, as Susan Duclos had pointed out within this September 19th ANP story, if we thought things were insane before, we haven't seen anything yet.

As Axios recently reported in this story saved over at Archive.com, Democrats are considering an 'armageddon option' that will consist of 'total war' if President Trump tries to get a Supreme Court Judge onto the bench who Democrats don't 'approve of' so politically, things are turning red-hot right on time for Democrats-globalists who'd love to see America locked down like Australia.

And while here in America, Democrats go to war against the police and 'law and order', as Paul Joseph Watson had also pointed out previously in this story at Summit News, should the Democrats-globalists get their way, America by 2021 won't look anything like the America we grew up in. From that story.

Police have the power to enter people’s homes without a warrant and also snatch children. Earlier this month, a pregnant woman was arrested in front of her children for posting about an anti-lockdown protest on Facebook.

Numerous people have been violently arrested for not wearing a face mask on the street, while journalists have also been arrested merely for covering anti-lockdown protests. Street markets have also been raided and shut down by riot police.

Now police merely have to suspect that you could commit a crime in future in order to carry out detentions and arrests.

And there you were thinking the Minority Report was just a dystopian sci-fi movie.

We’re living in it.

Huge 111-foot asteroid to skim past Earth at 22,000 mph, space rock’s ‘closest encounter for 115 years’

By Charlotte Edwards, Digital Technology and Science Reporter | The Sun

A huge asteroid is about to skim past Earth at its closest approach in 115 years. Astronomers have warned that the space rock 2019 TA7 will be 50 times closer to us than our closest neighboring planet Mercury.

The asteroid will be making its close approach at around 6:53 pm today. It should skim past Earth at over 22,500 miles per hour, according to data collected by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The space rock is estimated to measure up to 111 feet in diameter, making it around three times larger than a double-decker bus.

It usually passes Earth about once a year but this evening will see it at a closer distance of 930,000 miles.

Any fast-moving space object that comes within around 4.65 million miles is considered to be "potentially hazardous" by cautious space organizations.

The asteroid is a similar size to the Chelyabinsk meteor, which exploded over Russia back in 2013. Its impact smashed windows and injured more than 1,000 people.

Experts did not predict the impact, sparking concern that Earth could be surprised with a more devastating incident in the future.

The last time asteroid 2019 TA7 came as close to Earth as it will be this evening was on October 14, 1904.

It will return for another close approach in 2021.

Russia's Tu-160 White Swan bomber leaves all US competitors behind

Science » Technologies and discoveries

Russia's Tupolev Tu-160 aircraft, also known as the White Swan, is truly an iconic work of aviation technology. This majestic and beautiful aircraft created in the USSR is a supersonic strategic missile carrying bomber that has a swing-wing design. This is the largest and most powerful supersonic aircraft in the history of military aviation. Not that long ago, two Russian Tu-160 bombers flew to Venezuela. The flight caused quite a commotion in Washington. The USA even threatened to invade Venezuela if Russia was going to open its air base in the Latin American country. Why such a reaction?

To this day, strategic bombers remain the most important aspect of the nuclear triad. Russia and the United States still remain world leaders in the field of military aircraft making.

USA's main strategic bomber is the supersonic B-1 Lancer, as well as the heavy and stealthy B-2 Spirit bomber. However, even though the B-2 was considered the best strategic bomber in the world for a long time primarily due to its stealth technology, facts speak for themselves. The B-2 can fly at a speed of 0.95 Mach, whereas its maximum range of combat radius makes up 5, 000 km. The White Swan can fly at a speed of 1.84 Mach, whereas its maximum range of the combat radius is 7,300 km.

The American aircraft is inferior to the White Swan in terms of the combat payload as well: 23 tons for the B-2 and 45 tons for the Tu-160.

The White Swan does not have the stealth technology. However, the Russian strategic bomber carries cruise missiles on board. First and foremost, it goes about X-101 cruise missiles. This is a strategic missile that is capable of striking targets at a distance of up to 5,500 km. The missile has a technology to reduce radar visibility. There is also a nuclear version of this missile - X-102. To crown it all, the Tu-160 can cover a distance of 13,000 km without refueling. One may conclude that the White Swan aircraft can overcome any air defense system.

It was reported that Rostec State Corporation develops a unique composite material, which would be applied to glass cockpit windows of the Tu-160. The technology will reduce the radar visibility of the aircraft significantly.

AstraZeneca Halts COVID-19 Vaccine Trials after Second Volunteer "Develops Neurological problems"

"They've Killed God; I Can't Feel God; My Soul Is Dead" AstraZeneca Halts COVID-19 Vaccine Trials after Second Volunteer "Develops Neurological problems"

Hal Turner,

16 Setpember, 2020

AstraZeneca revealed details of its large coronavirus vaccine trials on Saturday, the third in a wave of rare disclosures by drug companies under pressure to be more transparent about how they are testing products that are the world’s best hope for ending the pandemic.

The release comes after a second vaccine test volunteer "Developed neurological problems." According to sources who claim to be familiar with the vaccine trials, the second volunteer suddenly started saying "They've killed God; I can't feel God anymore - my Soul is dead" after the vaccine.

Polls are finding Americans increasingly wary of accepting a coronavirus vaccine. And scientists inside and outside the government are worried that regulators, pressured by the president for results before Election Day on Nov. 3, might release an unproven or unsafe vaccine.

“The release of these protocols seems to reflect some public pressure to do so,” said Natalie Dean, a biostatistician and expert in clinical trial design for vaccines at the University of Florida. “This is an unprecedented situation, and public confidence is such a huge part of the success of this endeavor.”

Experts have been particularly concerned about AstraZeneca’s vaccine trials, which began in April in Britain, because of the company’s refusal to provide details about serious neurological illnesses in two participants, both women, who received its experimental vaccine in Britain. Those cases spurred the company to halt its trials twice, the second time earlier this month. The studies have resumed in Britain, Brazil, India and South Africa, but are still on pause in the U.S. About 18,000 people worldwide have received AstraZeneca’s vaccine so far.

AstraZeneca’s 111-page trial blueprint, known as a protocol, states that its goal is a vaccine with 50 percent effectiveness — the same threshold that the Food and Drug Administration has set in its guidance for coronavirus vaccines. To determine with statistical confidence whether the company has met that target, there will have to be 150 people ill with confirmed coronavirus among participants who were vaccinated or received placebo shots.

However, the plan anticipates that a safety board will perform an early analysis after there have been just 75 cases. If the vaccine is 50 percent effective at that point, it might be possible for the company to stop the trial early and apply for authorization from the government to release the vaccine for emergency use.

The company did not immediately inform the public about the neurological problems of either participant. Nor did it promptly alert the F.D.A. that it was again pausing its trials after the second U.K. volunteer developed illness and an independent safety board called for a temporary halt, according to multiple people familiar with the situation. The company’s chief executive told investors about the problems but did not discuss them publicly until the information was leaked and reported by STAT.

How Much Silver Bullion Was Sold By The Top Three Official Mints So Far This Year?

September 18, 2020

We are just in the beginning stages of the MASSIVE SILVER BULLION DEMAND to come…

by Steve St Angelo of SRSrocco Report

The top three official mints sold a great deal of retail silver bullion products in the first half of 2020. However, the sales figure could have been a great deal higher if the various government mints weren’t forced to shut down production. The top three official mints in retail silver bullion sales are the U.S. Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, and the Perth Mint.

According to the data from the 2020 World Silver Survey, for last year’s figures, the Royal Canadian Mint sold 25.8 million oz (Moz) of silver bullion products, followed by the U.S. Mint at 19.5 Moz and the Perth Mint with 12.7 Moz. The majority of the 19.5 Moz of U.S. Mint silver bullion products sold last year were from the 14.9 Moz of Silver Eagles and 1.5 Moz of the Five-ounce American The Beautiful Silver Coins with the remainder in Silver Eagle Proofs, collectibles, and various numismatic coins.

However, both the Royal Canadian Mint and the Perth Mint also sell silver bars. The Royal Canadian Mint sells 10 oz, 100 oz, and kilo silver bars besides its Silver Maples and various other official silver coins and numismatics. Unfortunately, since 2015, the Royal Canadian Mint no longer provides the sales figures for its Silver Maples. I will contact the Royal Canadian Mint to see if they will provide this data.

Regardless, if we look at the first half of 2020, here is the increase in silver bullion products from these top three official mints. In the first six months of 2020, these top three official mints sold 34.9 Moz of silver bullion products versus 24.1 Moz during the same period last year. That turns out to be 10.8 Moz more silver bullion products sold 1h 2020, or 45% higher than during 1H 2019. We can see that the Perth Mint’s silver bullion sales nearly doubled 1H 2020 versus 1H 2019, likely due to mints ability to keep its operation open longer versus the U.S. and Royal Canadian Mints. Australia’s shut down due to the pandemic was less severe compared to the United States and Canada. Now, if we look at the difference in these three official government mints’ silver bullion product sales in 2020 for the most updated figures, the change since last year is even greater. While the Royal Canadian Mint only provides updates quarterly, the U.S. Mint and Perth Mint do so every month. And, the U.S. Mint updates their Silver Eagle sales figures even more regularly than the Perth Mint.

The next chart shows the most up to date figures for these three official mints. The U.S. Mint’s total Silver Eagle sales are nearly 18.2 Moz for Jan-Aug 2020 versus 12.2 Moz for the same period last year, while the Perth Mint’s increased from 5.2 Moz to 10 Moz. Again, as stated above, the Canadian Mint will not update its figures until its Q3 2020 report comes out in late October or early November.

The total silver bullion sales from these official mints (at various periods) is 40.4 Moz versus 27.3 Moz last year. As I have stated many times, I believe we are just in the beginning stages of the MASSIVE SILVER BULLION DEMAND to come in the future.

Americans who purchase mostly Official Silver Coins & Rounds will be thrilled they did when future supply dries up, only at much higher prices.

I will be providing more updates as the data is released from these mints.

America A Failed State, That’s The First Stage Of Collapse

Jack Metir Alternative, War September 21, 2020 11 Minutes

The second stage the transition to becoming an authoritarian state. All that’s left now is the third and final stage of collapse: the permanent transformation from failed to authoritarian state

What’s happening to America? It’s a question that Americans — and people around the world — are asking, horrified and bewildered.

The answer to that question goes like this. America was a failed state. And now it’s becoming an authoritarian one. America is now 60 days from the final stage of social collapse — the terminal stage, the point of no return, at which a society goes full-blown authoritarian, permanently — and it’s looking increasingly likely to us survivors and scholars of authoritarianism that that final, terminal stage is going to happen. America is dying.

And yet that’s a classical, textbook, predictable sequence. Which, if you really want to prevent, you should probably understand. Let me explain.

What do you imagine a failed state is? If you’re a “real” American, you probably think it’s some distant, war-torn land. And in a sense, you’re right. But it was also America, and is.

A failed state is a place where people can no longer really obtain the basics of life, in any fair or decent or sane way. There is not enough to go around. The result is that people live under the rule of a kind of violence, in a state of chaos, in perpetual despair and rage and panic. Where will tomorrow’s water, food, medicine, the money to pay for it all, come from? The state’s most basic job is to organise society in such a way that people can obtain the basics of life. We all need shelter, food, water, and medicine to live. To live well, at even a minimal level, we need safety, education, income, savings. That doesn’t mean that the state has to give those things to people necessarily — but it does have to organise society in such a way that those things can be had.

And that is precisely where America failed. Americans — especially “real” ones — are used to growing up in an atmosphere of fevered propaganda, exceptionalism. But what really happened in America from 1980 to about 2015 was this.

America became a society where people couldn’t obtain the basics of life anymore. I mean that in both absolute and relative ways. Want to have a child? That’ll cost you $50,000. Want to educate one? That’ll cost you $250,000. Need a life-saving operation? Sorry, that’ll cost you $500,000. What the? Entire cities had infrastructures which simply failed, like Flint. Society as a whole had no functioning social systems healthcare, retirement, pensions. So Americans’ only choice was to pay the prices that their system demanded. Want a pension? Wall St will sell you a “401K” — and take a fat cut, while hedge funds raid whatever was left of your life savings. Want healthcare? Sure, that “premium” will cost you thousands a month, for a plan that provides little care or choice at all.

Americans were locked into broken, dysfunctional systems, which no longer provided them the basics of life, at prices they could afford.

The income of the average American was scarcely $50k. How were they to afford any of this? They couldn’t, quite obviously.

The result was that many Americans began to go without the basics of life. They chose between that life-saving operation, or keeping a roof over their kids’ heads. They ate cheap, industrially processed food, and grew obese and ill, because it had little nutritional value. They worked jobs that would never lead to careers or mobility desperately just to retain some access to the meagre “benefits” only jobs now provided. Young Americans found themselves crippled by educational debt, and unable to begin independent lives of their own.

See the point clearly. America could no longer provide the basics to people. It could not feed, shelter, educate, or employ its people. Not affordably, and certainly not well. The situation was so bad, for example, that Americans just gave up looking for work, in fact, reaching a point where just above half of the working age population were employed at all. That millennials became a lost generation stuck at home forever, working crap jobs. That strangers begged one another for money to pay for medicine online.

This was a Soviet society by any other name. The Soviet Union famously had breadlines, where you’d never get the bread. America had unobtainable basics, too, in even larger and more lethal ways.

What did Americans have to do to simply even attempt to afford the basics of life — medicine, education, food, water, housing? They had to go into massive debt. Today, the average American dies in debt, meaning his or her debts are unpayable. And that means that he never in net terms really owns, saves, or earns a penny.

Those are the economics of failed states. People end up broke. A society descends into mass poverty. Nobody much can afford the basics. Meanwhile, those who have monopolies over said basics become ultra, mega rich. Vast inequality sets in. An economy becomes a kind of caste society — a large pool of hopeless and powerless proles, and a tiny number of billionaires so rich and powerful they resemble feudal lords of old.

Worse, nobody much understands — because a society’s economic statistics don’t show it. In America, like in the Soviet Union, economic statistics failed to reflect any of the real pain or despair people were beginning to live in. The stock market boomed — forever. Profits rose and rose. The unemployment rate seemed suspiciously low. Things had never been better! Then why was the average American broke, dying in debt, working a go-nowhere job, descending into poverty? These two sets of facts did not comport. One had to be lying, and the other telling the truth. But America’s intellectuals and politicians were incurious, lazy. They did not seem to care that the story economics was telling didn’t seem to be telling any remotely accurate truth about people’s living standards anymore.

Now, the difference between America and classical failed states is that all this was a choice. There was no absolute shortage of medicine or healthcare in America — what was there, was artificial scarcity. Why? To prop up the profits of mega-corporations, bank, and hedge funds. The system had turned predatory. The situation grew so bad that something truly ominous happened. The middle class became a minority in about 2010. That should never happen. It tells us that a society’s foundations have rotted — and the house of democracy is about to come crashing down.

Is starting to feel like it’s every man for himself, Is possible that right now, a global crisis is upon us, Without even knowing… And the virus may not be the biggest threat, but the crisis that follows, Everyday goods that keep us alive will be gone, I’m talking, food, fresh water, medicine, clothes, fuel…

Literally so. What happens when people can’t get the basics of life? Exactly what you might expect. Their life expectancy begins to fall — something we should never, ever see happening in any country, ever. America’s cratered, and still is. They die in debt — as we’ve discussed above, extorted by mafias, essentially, for artificial scarcities. Their rates of suicide and depression soar, as despair becomes endemic — which is exactly what happened in America. A sense of rage and powerlessness take hold.

What does living like that do? It loosens social bonds. Groups begin to treat other with suspicion and hostility. They blame each other for a society’s growing problems, the problem of being a failed state. The sense of easy coexistence which is there in successful societies — people treating each other with kindness, fairness, dignity — ceases to exist, because gentleness is a luxury. Life becomes a bitter, brutal battle for self-preservation, and norms of peacefulness and tolerance and acceptance give way to hostility, cruelty, rage, and aggression. And soon enough, all of that becomes hate. All that’s needed is a demagogue who can ignite the spark of fury and produce the flames of hatred.

So a failed state is a place where despair, rage, and frustration are growing, surging, about to explode, often invisibly, like magma building beneath a caldera. And that was America, in the 2000s, as people’s lives fell apart with stunning swiftness, which loosened their social bonds to the point of a cruelty which shocked the world. People were so busy trying to obtain the basics that they began to treat one another like disposable subhumans. Sorry, I can’t care about your healthcare, sorry, I don’t care if your kids are shot at school. The world was shocked. What was happening to America?

It had become a failed state, which is a place without trust, comity, optimism, people believing in and accepting each other, as life simply fell apart, and the result of all that was predictable. A demagogue arose, who blamed the problems of the “real” American on hated minorities. Just like the Nazis did, just like the Islamic World’s dictators did, just like every demagogue in history has. “They are the cause of your woes!” Trump bellowed it at rally after rally. And the people once known as America’s white middle and working class — by now, they were broken, desperate, and hopeless enough to believe him.

Enough of them, anyways, to catapult Trump into power, in a victory that shocked America’s establishment — who still thought things had never been better. Had they ever heard of Scranton? Baltimore? Detroit? Huntington — the overdose capital? Things were good for America’s elites, sure — life in the bubbles DC and Manhattan and San Francisco was booming. But they were not the majority of America. They did not reflect America as a whole even remotely.  etc

Do not take the warning lightly. We survivors and scholars have one message for you:

It’s much worse than you believe, and it’s much later than you think.

Dangerous Days

by Hal Lindsey

On Facebook or other social media, are you reluctant to say what you really think? Is the possibility of backlash too disheartening? Is it easier to just post pictures of your dog? Does mentioning your faith at work put you at risk of losing your job? Does walking down a street that once felt like home now make you feel queasy? Have family get-togethers become minefields? Have Thanksgiving and Christmas become exercises in staying away from the mines’ many triggers?

I hope none of those things are true for you, but for millions they have become facts of life. As a culture, we have lost the grace to allow one another to make mistakes, or have opinions different from our own. Fuses are short and the landmines are being loaded with more and more explosives. It’s getting dangerous out theredangerous to speak your mind, to wear certain clothing items such as uniforms, or to say what you thought were harmless things. When people assume you’re talking in code, anything you say can and will be used against you.  The rage engulfing America has been building for a while. A Time Magazine cover story in 2016 promised to explain, “Why we’re losing the Internet to the culture of hate.” The article focused on internet “trolls.” But it was really about the loss of common decency.   The Time article lamented that if you say on the internet that you’re struggling with depression, someone “will try to goad you into killing yourself.… And it’s seeping from our smartphones into every aspect of our lives.” Covered by the web’s anonymity, people who would defend a kitten’s right to happiness seem blithely willing to shame young women for being skinny, fat, tall, short, or even smart. They often recommend suicide as a remedy.

The shamers and haters latch onto anything different about a person and try to humiliate them with it. They mock the deaths of the recently deceased. They find and publish private information about random people. They send rape threats to women with whom they disagree.

Look at the world of athletics. We used to treasure something called sportsmanship. Today it’s seen as a sign of weakness. I don’t think we can calculate sportsmanship’s value to society, or what the loss of it means in the long term.

2 Timothy 3:1 famously says, “In the last days perilous times will come.” The verses that follow tell us why the last days will be full of peril. Those verses do not say the last days will be perilous because of earthquakes, famine, or pestilence. They assign the greatest last days peril to human moral failings.   The first five verses of that chapter say, “In the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.”

What makes the last days perilous? Primarily, the sudden and dramatic loss of moral character. Need an example? Look around.

Iran’s Rouhani warns of ‘crushing response’ to US sanctions declaration at UN

Tehran says Trump administration ‘isolated’ after other world powers reject American assertion that sanctions on Islamic Republic are back in force

By TOI staff and Agencies 20 September 2020, 5:14 pm

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday warned the US it faces defeat after the Trump administration declared that UN sanctions are back in force against the Islamic Republic, a move rejected by other world powers.

America is approaching a certain defeat in its sanctions move … It faced defeat and negative response from the international community. We will never yield to US pressure and Iran will give a crushing response to America’s bullying,” Rouhani said during a televised cabinet meeting, according to Reuters. He added: “America’s maximum pressure against Iran, in its political and legal aspects, has turned into America’s maximum isolation.” Rouhani’s remarks echoed those of Iran’s foreign ministry. “The United States is very, very isolated in its claims,” ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said. “The whole world is saying nothing has changed.”

The comments came after the Trump administration announced the so-called “snapback” of the sanctions was in effect and threatened to “impose consequences” on any UN member state that fails to comply.

The sanctions in question were lifted in 2015 when Iran and six world powers — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US — reached a landmark nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

But US President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018, saying the deal — negotiated by his predecessor Barack Obama — was insufficient. He also renewed and even strengthened Washington’s own sanctions.

The US insists it is still a participant in the agreement that it stormed out of, but only so it can activate the snapback option, which it announced on August 20.

Virtually every other Security Council member disputes Washington’s ability to execute this legal pirouette, and the UN body has not taken the measure any further. On Sunday, two permanent council members — France and Britain — issued a joint statement along with non-permanent member Germany saying the US’s “purported notification” was “incapable of having any legal effect.”

Russia also said the US lacked legal authority. “The illegitimate initiatives and actions of the United States by definition cannot have international legal consequences for other countries,” said its foreign ministry.

‘Reckless actions’

Iran brushed off the move and called on the rest of the world to unite against what it called the US’s “reckless actions”.  “This is all much ado about nothing, and I imagine these are the most bitter days and hours for” the United States, said Khatibzadeh.

Tehran’s message for Washington is clear. Return to the international community, to your commitments, stop rebelling and the world will accept you.” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Washington’s latest move in a statement on Saturday evening.

Today, the United States welcomes the return of virtually all previously terminated UN sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.

Pompeo promised measures would be announced in the coming days against “violators” of the sanctions to ensure that “Iran does not reap the benefits of UN-prohibited activity.” With around six weeks to go until the November 3 US election, Trump could unveil those measures in a speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.

Iran issued a stark warning if the US follows through with the measures. “If the United States acts on these threats, directly, or with the cooperation of a handful of its puppets, it will face a serious response and be responsible for all the dangerous consequences,” its foreign ministry said.

It added that Washington, by leaving the nuclear deal, has “explicitly denied itself of any rights” to use the mechanisms in agreement and UN Resolution 2231, which enshrined the nuclear accord.

‘Nothing worse’

In mid-August, the US suffered a resounding defeat at the Security Council when it tried to extend the embargo on conventional weapons being sent to Tehran, which was due to expire in October.

Pompeo responded with an unusually vehement attack on Britain, France and Germany, accusing them of “siding with Iran’s ayatollahs” before announcing the snapback. The Trump administration, however, is acting as if the international sanctions are in place, while the rest of the international community acts as if nothing has changed.

Washington is hammering home that the arms embargo has been extended “indefinitely” and that many activities related to Tehran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs are now subject to international sanctions. Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif accused Pompeo of not having read UN resolutions or the nuclear deal.

“He’s now probably waiting for the movie to come out so he can begin to understand it,” he told state television.  While dismissing the US move, Iran’s currency dropped to a record low of 272,500 to the US dollar at money exchange shops across Tehran due to the mounting economic pressure from Washington.

The rial has lost more than 30% of its value to the dollar since June as sweeping US sanctions on Iran continue to crush its ability to sell oil globally. Iran’s currency was at 32,000 rials to the dollar at the time of Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers. On the streets of Tehran, Iranians complained of difficult economic conditions they attributed to US sanctions.

“It’s really difficult for the people right now. Whether sanctions are reimposed or not, we are living with utmost difficulty,” said Leila Zanganeh, a martial arts instructor.

Danial Namei, an architect, seemed to care little for returning UN sanctions and doubted things could get worse.

“We’ve been through difficult things and it is still ongoing. There’s nothing worse than the worst, after all,” he said.

Tropical Storm Beta expected to make landfall in Texas Monday afternoon or evening

The storm will then hover over southeast Texas for about 24 hours.

By Daniel Manzo and Dan Peck September 21, 2020, 12:30 AM • 5 min read

Tropical Storm Beta is expected to make landfall Monday afternoon or evening as the slow-moving storm churns through the Gulf on its way toward the Texas coast.

As of late Sunday night, the storm was around 120 miles south of Galveston, Texas, with winds of 60 mph.

The storm is moving west-northwest at a slow 6 mph as it makes its way toward the Texas coastline.

After making landfall, the storm will slow down and hover over Southeast Texas for about 24 hours as it continues to weaken. It will then track parallel to the Texas Gulf Coast through Wednesday and then finally enter the Mississippi Valley by Friday.

All throughout, it will bring rounds of heavy rain to the region. There are tropical storm watches and warnings, and flash flood watches in effect for parts of Texas and Louisiana.

High-resolution computer models are indicating that the official landfall of the slow-moving storm will likely come somewhere between Houston and Corpus Christi, likely near or just north of the greater Victoria, Texas, area.

The forecast models also show little movement of Beta once on land, with barely any movement between Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning. This will cause torrential rain to continue to hit parts of Texas, particularly on the eastern side of the storm.

During this time frame, there could be a storm surge of up to four feet.

The rainfall forecast was reduced Sunday, keeping the heaviest rainfall totals a little lower and little more defined. However, there is a good chance of over 10 inches of rain near the Galveston area, as well as a broad swath of 6 to 10 inches of rain along the Texas coastline into southern Louisiana, and even possibly into parts of northern Louisiana. The highest rain totals will be along the upper Texas coast with 6 to 12 inches of rain now forecast. Rainfall totals over a foot are still possible at this point but will be very isolated, according to the forecast.

Elsewhere, as of Late Sunday night Hurricane Teddy was a Category 2 hurricane with winds of 105 mph, as it moved north-northwest about 210 miles south-southeast of Bermuda.

While the center of Teddy will pass east of Bermuda on Monday, it will come close enough to bring tropical storm conditions to the island beginning overnight and lasting through Monday. A tropical storm warning remains in effect.

Teddy will then rush off into the Northern Atlantic, perhaps grazing parts of extreme southeast Canada. The main impacts in the Northeast U.S. will be rough surf. There is a small low-pressure system just off the east coast of Florida and this area only has a very small chance of gaining tropical characteristics in the next few days.

Tropical Storm Wilfred will continue to struggle with further development and may dissipate soon, if not within the next few days, well before affecting land.

Post Tropical Cyclone Paulette south of the Azores could regain some tropical characteristics over the next day or two.

President Trump says $5 Billion from TikTok, Oracle, Walmart deal will go toward education

Dalvin Brown, USA TODAY Published 1:27 p.m. ET Sept. 20, 2020 | Updated 7:23 a.m. ET Sept. 21, 2020

President Donald Trump has signed off on a business proposal between TikTok, Walmart and Oracle that would allow the social networking app to continue to operate in the U.S.

One of Trump's stipulations for approving the deal was a $5 billion commitment from the companies to create an education initiative that teaches children America's "real history," the President said.

Trump first mentioned the education fund on Saturday as he left the White House for a campaign rally in North Carolina. "We're going to be setting up a very large fund for the education of American youth," Trump told reporters as he announced "conceptually" signing off on the TikTok venture.

"That'll be great. That's their contribution that I've been asking for," Trump added. During a campaign speech later that evening, Trump laid out more details surrounding how the proposed education commitment unfolded. He told the audience in Fayetteville, North Carolina, that when talking with the heads of the companies, he asked them to “do me a favor, could you put up $5 billion into a fund for education, so we can educate people as to real history of our country. The real history, not the fake history.”

The Trump-approved, U.S.-based version of TikTok will employ 25,000 people and likely be headquartered in Texas, the President said. Trump's education announcement comes days after he slammed the New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project curriculum, which reframes the way American history and slavery is taught in schools.

"The left has warped, distorted, and defiled the American story with deceptions, falsehoods, and lies. There is no better example than the New York Times' totally discredited 1619 Project," Trump said Thursday during a speech at the National Archives in Washington.

He claimed the project rewrites "American history to teach our children that we were founded on the principle of oppression, not freedom."

Trump also said he would create a national "1776 commission" to would "promote patriotic education."

Suspect arrested for allegedly sending ricin-tainted letter to White House

The suspect was described as a woman who was taken into custody trying to enter the United States from Canada, a federal official said. 

Sept. 20, 2020, 5:54 PM EDT / Updated Sept. 20, 2020, 10:16 PM EDT

By Pete Williams, Tim Stelloh and Michael Kosnar

WASHINGTON — A woman suspected of sending a letter containing the deadly poison ricin to the White House was arrested trying to enter the United States from Canada, two federal law enforcement officials said Sunday.  An FBI spokesperson confirmed the arrest and said the agency is continuing to investigate the suspicious letter.

A federal law enforcement official said the woman was taken into custody while traveling across Peace Bridge, which connects Fort Erie, Ontario, and Buffalo, New York.

Another federal law enforcement official said the suspect was detained by Customs and Border Protection agents. Additional information about the arrest and the suspect was not immediately available.

The FBI said Saturday that it was investigating a suspicious letter addressed to President Donald Trump that had been intercepted.  It wasn’t clear when the letter was sent or where it was intercepted. Law enforcement officials said Saturday that the poison, which is highly toxic and can cause organ failure and death, was detected at an off-site facility that screens mail addressed to the White House. The ricin was confirmed in field and laboratory tests.

The suspect allegedly sent other letters to federal prisons that were discovered in different facilities, an official told NBC News Saturday. It wasn’t immediately clear which prisons the letters were sent to or who the recipients were.

The official said only one letter appeared to be addressed to a political figure.

Pete Williams and Michael Kosnar reported from Washington and Tim Stelloh from California.

Setting Up Epic SCOTUS Battle: Trump Urges Senate to Vote 'Without Delay'

Saturday, 19 September 2020 10:47 AM

President Donald Trump on Saturday urged the Republican-run Senate to consider "without delay" his upcoming nomination to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just six weeks before the election.

Trump tweeted:

"We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices. We have this obligation, without delay!"

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed Friday night, hours after Ginsburg’s death, to call a vote for whomever Trump nominated. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said any vote should come after the Nov. 3 election.  "Voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice to consider," Biden said.

One of those on Trump's short list, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, noted in a tweet the history of election-year Supreme Court nominees:  "Important history: '19 times between 1796 & 1968 presidents have sought to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in a presidential-election year while their party controlled the Senate. 10 of those nominations came before the election; 9 of the 10 were successful.'"

Democratic nominee Joe Biden vigorously disagreed, declaring "voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice to consider."

McConnell, who sets the calendar in the Senate and has made judicial appointments his priority, declared unequivocally in a statement not long after Ginsburg's death was announced Trump's nominee would receive a confirmation vote in the chamber. In 2016, McConnell refused to consider President Barack Obama's choice for the high court months ahead of the election, eventually preventing a vote.

The impending clash over the vacant seat — when to fill it and with whom — is sure to significantly affect the stretch run of the presidential race, further stirring passions in a nation already reeling from the pandemic that has killed nearly 200,000 people, left millions unemployed and heightened partisan tensions and anger.

Trump, in brief remarks to reporters after learning of Ginsburg's death, called her "an amazing woman who led an amazing life." He had continued with a campaign speech in Minnesota for about an hour and a half after the nation — as well as aides and many in his audience with cell phones — had learned of her death. He seemed surprised when he spoke with reporters afterward, saying he did not know she had died.

Trump had noted in his rally speech that the next presidential term could offer him as many as four appointments to the nine-member court, whose members are confirmed for life.

"This is going to be the most important election in the history of our country and we have to get it right," he added.

Biden said it must be up to the next president, whether himself or Trump, to choose a successor to be submitted for Senate confirmation.

"This was the position that the Republican Senate took in 2016, when there were nearly nine months before the election," he said. "That is the position the United States Senate must take now, when the election is less than two months away. We are talking about the Constitution and the Supreme Court. That institution should not be subject to politics."

A confirmation vote in the Senate is not guaranteed, even with a Republican majority.

Typically it takes several months to vet and hold hearings on a Supreme Court nominee, and time is short ahead of the election. Key senators may be reluctant to cast votes so close to the election. With a slim GOP majority, 53 seats in the 100-member chamber, Trump's choice could afford to lose only a few.

McConnell did not specify the timing, but trying for confirmation in a post-election lame-duck session if Trump had lost to Biden or Republicans had lost the Senate would carry further political complications.

Democrats immediate denounced McConnell's move as hypocritical, pointing out that he refused to call hearings for Merrick Garland, Obama's pick, 237 days before the 2016 election. The 2020 election is 46 days away.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., in a tweet, echoed word for word what McConnell said in 2016 about the Garland nomination: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."

Both Trump and McConnell have pointed to appointments to the federal judiciary, including two Supreme Court justices, part of their legacy. Trump said last month he would "absolutely" try to fill a vacancy if one came up before the end of his first term.

"I would move quickly," Trump said in an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. "Why not? I mean, they would. The Democrats would if they were in this position."

While plans were still being formalized, Trump was expected to announce a choice sooner rather than later and may meet with members of his short list in coming days, according to a White House official not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump last week added 20 names to his list of candidates he’s pledged to choose from if he has future vacancies to fill. He contrasted his list with unnamed "radical justices" he claimed Biden would nominate who would "fundamentally transform America without a single vote of Congress."

Trump released a similar list in 2016 in a bid to win over conservative and evangelical voters who had doubts about his conservative credentials. Among those on his current list: Sens. Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton, former Solicitor General Noel Francisco and Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in Chicago, long a favorite of conservatives.

The average number of days to confirm a justice, according to the Congressional Research Service, is 69, which would be after the election. But some Republicans quickly noted that Ginsburg was confirmed in just 42 days.

Four GOP defections could defeat a nomination, while a tie vote could be broken by Vice President Mike Pence.

Among the senators to watch are Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb.

Collins is in a tight race for her own reelection, as are several other GOP senators, including Cory Gardner in Colorado. Murkowski and Romney have been critical of Trump and protective of the institution of the Senate.

Some Republicans, including Collins and Murkowski, have suggested previously hearings should wait if a seat were to open. And because the Arizona Senate race is a special election, that seat could be filled as early as Nov. 30 — which would narrow the window for McConnell if the Democratic candidate, Mark Kelly, hangs onto his lead.

In a note to his GOP colleagues Friday night, McConnell urged them to "keep their powder dry" and not rush to declare a position on whether a Trump nominee should get a vote this year.

"Over the coming days, we are all going to come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how we will handle the coming nomination. For those of you who are unsure how to answer, or for those inclined to oppose giving a nominee a vote, I urge you all to keep your powder dry," McConnell wrote. "This is not the time to prematurely lock yourselves into a position you may later regret."

McConnell argued there would be enough time to fill the vacancy and he restated his argument that the 2016 Senate precedent — in which a GOP-held Senate blocked Obama's election-year nomination — did not establish a rule that applies to the Ginsburg case.

A top aide to a GOP senator confirmed the authenticity of McConnell's email to his fellow senators, which was first reported by The Washington Post.

Under McConnell, the Senate changed the confirmation rules to allow for a simple majority. The Senate's No. 2 Republican, Sen. John Thune, supported McConnell's plan Friday night, though the Judiciary Commtitee chairman, Lindsey Graham, did not weigh in.

Obama called for Republicans to wait, saying "a basic principle of the law – and of everyday fairness – is that we apply rules with consistency and not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment."

One difference from 2016 is, despite the vacancy resulting from Ginsburg's death, conservatives have a working majority of five justices on a range of issues. When Antonin Scalia died four years ago, the court was divided between four liberals and four conservatives.

The next pick could shape important decisions, including on abortion rights, as well as any legal challenges that may stem from the 2020 election. The 2018 hearings on Trump's second pick, now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, turned into a bitter partisan battle after sexual assault allegations were made.

Biden has promised to nominate a Black woman to the high court if given the chance. He has said he is also working on a list of potential nominees, but the campaign has given no indication that it will release names before the election.

Democrats believe doing so would unnecessarily distract from Biden's focus on Trump's handling of the pandemic and the economy, while also giving the president and his allies fresh targets to attack. In the hours before Ginsburg's death, Trump trailed Biden in national polling but the race was much tighter in battleground states.

Saudi royal family said divided over possible future ties with Israel

Crown prince said to be in favor of the move as it could bring business opportunities, coordination over Iran, but king is solidly committed to Palestinian demand for state

By TOI staff 19 September 2020, 1:17 pm

The Saudi Arabian royal family is reportedly split over possible future ties with Israel following landmark agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

According to the report, King Salman bin Abdulaziz has come into conflict with his son, de facto leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, with the latter said to be in favor of the move. The newspaper reported that the monarch remains committed to a boycott of Israel coupled with a strong stance in favor of the Palestinian demand for an independent state, while the crown prince is open to normalization with the Jewish state and the business opportunities it could bring as well as public coordination in the struggle against Iran. Saudi Arabia, Israel, the UAE and Bahrain share Tehran as a common foe and maintain close ties to Washington. According to the report, cited by Channel 13 news, the crown prince knew in advance of Israel’s negotiations with the UAE and Bahrain, but did not tell his father for fear he would try to sabotage the efforts, a move that angered the king. Bin Salman reportedly knew that his father’s public opposition to an agreement between Israel and the UAE could make the negotiations difficult.

The king instructed his foreign minister to declare once again the kingdom’s commitment to the establishment of a Palestinian state and one of the king’s associates wrote an article in a Saudi-owned newspaper in which he reiterated the pro-Palestinian position of the royal house, the Walla news site reported, citing the Wall Street Journal report.

The article reportedly additionally hinted that the UAE should have pressured the Israelis to make further concessions vis-a-vis the Palestinians.

Under the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, formulated by Saudi Arabia’s former king Abdullah, Arab states agreed to only forge ties with Israel after an accord is reached with the Palestinians based on the 1967 armistice lines.

Saudi Arabia remained noticeably silent following the announcement of a normalization agreement between Israel and Bahrain. But Bahrain is seen as a client state of its neighbor and close ally Saudi Arabia, and the tiny Gulf state is not likely to have moved forward with normalization without approval from Riyadh.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump have both indicated several more countries could be in line to establish open relations in the near future and head of Israel’s Mossad spy agency Yossi Cohen indicated in an interview aired Wednesday that Saudi Arabia could be in line to normalize ties with Israel, while refusing to comment on whether he had met with the rulers of the Arab kingdom. Cohen has been cited as a key figure in the US-sponsored Abraham Accords with Abu Dhabi and Manama, signed at a festive White House ceremony Tuesday. Cohen reportedly shuttled to Gulf states on numerous secretive journeys in recent years to build closer clandestine ties with Arab nations.

Questioned as to whether major regional power Saudi Arabia could move to do so in the foreseeable future, Cohen answered: “I believe it could happen.” And asked if he had met with the crown prince, he smiled and said “I’d like not to comment on that point.” Trump said Tuesday he expected Saudi Arabia to normalize relations with Israel following the diplomatic move taken by Bahrain and the UAE.

He also said he believed some five or six countries were on the path to peace with Israel, then later in the day revised that number to up to nine nations. Asked if he expected Saudi Arabia to follow the UAE and Bahrain, Trump said: “I do. I spoke with the king of Saudi Arabia,” adding it would come “at the right time.”

The New York Times earlier this month quoted unnamed Trump administration officials who have been pushing the Saudis to recognize Israel saying that this possibility remains remote at best for now.

Opening official ties with Saudi Arabia would be a historic achievement for Israel, and mark a significant shift in the region. The Saudis have remained non-committal, however, despite support for normalization from Washington and shared interests with Israel.

In what was seen as a significant step forward, Saudi Arabia allowed Israeli planes to fly through their airspace last month.

Iran increasing arrogance as it thinks it defeated US sanctions

Overall it is the symbolism that is important to Iran, its belief that a growing alliance with Russia and China could upend US policy globally.

By SETH J. FRANTZMAN SEPTEMBER 19, 2020 07:39

Iranian media believes that Iran has defeated the US on the issue of new sanctions at the UN and that therefore Iran will soon have more abilities to import and export weapons. Overall it is the symbolism that is important to Iran, its belief that a growing alliance with Russia and China could upend US policy globally.

Fars News and other Iranian media have run several articles boasting about Iran’s success at defeating US sanctions. Iran’s Javad Zarif also sounded pleased, arguing nothing will happen on September 20 or other days in which the US might try to push through new sanctions against Iran. While the US seemed to indicate sanctions could return, the UK, France and Germany indicate that UN sanctions relief will continue.

The US wants to trigger “snap back” sanctions but Iran believes US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has not gotten support for this action. Iran’s Fars News says this is the last chance US President Donald Trump has before the US election in November. In a sense Iran is mocking Washington and hinting that it has no concern about what the US might do next.

Iran has been under a US maximum pressure pressure campaign since 2018. It has lashed out attacking oil tankers in May and June last year and attacking Saudi Arabia in September. It has also used proxies to attack the US in Iraq, sent weapons to the Houthis in Yemen and precision guided munitions to Hezbollah via Syria.

An Iranian nuclear facility at Natanz suffered some kind of sabotage in July and Iran has been concerned about this incident regarding its nuclear program.

The History of NSA and FBI Snooping and Cyber-surveillance

by Geoffrey Walters

You’ve probably heard about mass governmental cyber surveillance programs (unless you’ve been living under a rock without Wi-Fi), but how much do you actually know about them? Today, we’ll share all the important details, plus recommend the best VPNs against government snooping you can use to keep the NSA and FBI out of your business. Most major powers in the world today have domestic intelligence services, some of which are more famous than others. In the United States, there’s the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), two agencies that have made headlines in recent years for engaging in online snooping and mass surveillance. Leaked documents recently showed the extent of those data-collecting efforts, which has caused many internet users to rethink just how safe their information is when they go online. 

What Do the NSA and the FBI Do?

The FBI was founded in 1908 with the goal of protecting the rights and liberties of United States citizens while enforcing criminal law throughout the country. Their somewhat vague mission statement gives the FBI a large amount of latitude to carry out their tasks, which include everything from stopping organized crime to preventing terrorism. The original benefit to having an FBI is access to government intelligence and resources along with the ability to cross state lines without jurisdiction issues (something local police forces can’t do).

The NSA was founded in 1952 and is responsible for global monitoring, information collecting, and protecting U.S. communications networks. This is carried out through surveillance efforts that include everything from physically bugging electronic systems to wiretapping and monitoring internet activity. The NSA’s job description is even less precise than the FBI’s, allowing it to bend an enormous number of rules in the name of protecting U.S. citizens and the integrity of the U.S. government.

As cliché as it may sound, most of what the FBI and NSA can do is classified. The agencies operate under extreme secrecy, which has led to countless conspiracy theories over the years. FBI agents are spotted wearing dark glasses loitering in public parks, for example, and the NSA has electronic bugs placed in every commercially produced smoke detector. While there may have been truth to some of these rumors, nothing compares to the paranoia brought about by the internet.

When ordinary people started using computers, going online, and carrying cell phones in their pockets, the NSA and the FBI took notice. Trillions of pieces of personal data were uploaded on a regular basis, all by willing participants using websites and social media. Tools were developed to capture and collect this information, which kicked off the age of data snooping and mass surveillance.

Cyber-surveillance Verified: The Snowden Leaks

In 2013, former NSA and CIA contractor Edward Snowden leaked documents pertaining to mass surveillance efforts carried out by worldwide government agencies. The initial revelations showed extensive, invasive measures taken by the NSA to spy on U.S. citizens, foreign travelers, and visiting government officials. Other intelligence groups were also implicated in these attacks, providing evidence of a network of cooperation between governments.

The Snowden leaks revealed a pattern of increasing surveillance from both the NSA and the FBI. The days of recording phone calls and copying security camera footage were over. Now these agencies can easily gather any personal information about anyone, usually without a warrant and without any kind of oversight.

Below is a short list of some of the information contained in Snowden’s early leaks. For a more in-depth look, take a look at the following list of Snowden revelations.

A loophole exists that allows government agencies to search U.S. citizens’ e-mail and phone call records without a warrant

Britain’s intelligence agency, GCHQ, intercepted phone and internet communications of foreign politicians visiting London

GCHQ taps fiber-optic cables to collect global e-mail message, Facebook posts, internet histories and more. This information is then shared with the NSA

The NSA accessed data through back doors built into U.S.-based internet companies such as Google and Facebook

The NSA pays hundreds of millions of dollars per year to several U.S. companies in exchange for access to their networks

The NSA spies on millions of phone calls, e-mails, and text messages of ordinary German and Brazilian citizens

The U.S. government placed electronic bugs in European Union offices throughout New York, Washington, and Brussels

The U.S. government spies on at least 38 foreign embassies using a variety of surveillance methods

As frightening as the above data sounds, it gets worse. The NSA and the FBI have ready access to e-mails, phone records, text messages, and much more. They aren’t bound by international borders, and they even share information with other government intelligence agencies. Documents obtained from an internal audit revealed the NSA broke its own privacy rules thousands of times per year, illustrating just how much power these agencies can wield, and how little privacy we have online.

FBI and NSA Mass Surveillance Programs

Snowden’s documents indicated the snooping and cyber-surveillance efforts by the NSA, FBI, and other government agencies are ongoing and invasive. If you have a cell phone, swipe a credit card, or use the internet, chances are your data has already been gathered and stored by at least one of these agencies.

Below are a few of the more noteworthy surveillance programs carried out by the NSA and FBI.

PRISMA system used by the NSA to gain unlimited access to private communications of users on nine popular internet services. Companies that actively cooperate with PRISM include Google, Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo, and Facebook

Carnivore (DCS1000) – Software used by the FBI to monitor e-mail and electronic communications. Carnivore has been replaced with more efficient software capable of snooping on a massive scale

EvilOlive – A program designed to collect and store large amounts of internet metadata generated by American citizens, including e-mail sender/recipient addresses and time stamps. EvilOlive gathered at least one trillion records by the end of 2012, with half of that number being processed in that year alone

ECHELON – ECHELON was originally a military surveillance program designed in the 1960s to monitor communications of Soviet Union officials. By the end of the century, it evolved beyond military applications and was used to intercept both private and commercial communications of U.S. citizens and citizens of the Five Eyes countries. The existence of ECHELON was confirmed by Snowden revelations in 2015

DISHFIRE – A collection system run by the NSA and Britain’s GCHQ that gathers hundreds of millions of text messages from citizens of both countries on a daily basis

The Five Eyes Intelligence Alliance

The Five Eyes is a comprehensive espionage alliance between Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Its origins can be traced to the post World War II period when the ECHELON surveillance system was developed. The listed countries had similar common laws blocking domestic surveillance on their respective soils. To gain better data on movements within their borders, they formed agreements that allowed intelligence sharing between agencies, neatly bypassing domestic laws to ensure everyone was under surveillance.

Snowden himself described Five Eyes as an organization that doesn’t answer to the known laws of its own countries, which put privacy advocates on edge. Furthermore, the Five Eyes countries have expanded to include limited participation by as many as fourteen nations, adding Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Norway, and Sweden to the list.

The Future of NSA and FBI Snooping

It’s estimated Snowden copied anywhere between 200,000 and 1.7 million documents. Only a small percentage of those have been released to the public. We may have just a fraction of the full picture, but what we know is terrifying nonetheless. As technology progresses the NSA and FBI are likely to find more efficient ways to monitor and gather information, making it more difficult to protect your privacy as the years go by.

Protect Against Mass Surveillance and Online Snooping with a VPN

The level of access the NSA and FBI have to everyone’s personal information is staggering. But with every new technology they deploy another one pops up to protect users against snooping and cyber-surveillance. Virtual private networks are currently gaining incredible traction as people deploy them to help protect their identity and activity on the internet. They’re fast, easy to use, and surprisingly effective at keeping you safe online.

VPNs work by encrypting data before it leaves your device, making it nearly impossible to determine the contents or origin of each packet. You also gain a measure of anonymity by replacing your local IP address with one from the VPN’s servers. You’ll be able to stay safe while using public Wi-Fi, protect against hacking attempts, access censored websites, and unblock region restricted content like videos and TV shows. All you have to do is choose a VPN, sign up, and enjoy a private internet experience.

How to Evaluate the Best VPN for Privacy

Diving into the world of VPNs and online privacy can be overwhelming at first. There are encryption protocols to research, logging policies to compare, security audits to sift through, and much more. We’ve made the process easier by providing a list of recommended VPNs below. Each was chosen based on the following criteria, ensuring you’ll always have the best VPN experience possible.

Reputation – Using a VPN means sending all of your data through their servers. If you choose a less-than-reputable company, there’s no guarantee your information isn’t being shared with the NSA. Our VPN providers are all well-established and trusted by the online privacy community to keep your data safe no matter what

Logging policyVPNs can log and store your information just like a local internet service provider. Logs make it possible for government agencies to request or demand copies, which puts your privacy at risk. The best way to keep information safe is to make sure it doesn’t exist, which is why zero-logging policies are a vital component to your online privacy

JurisdictionWhere a VPN company is registered can make a huge difference. If the service is located in a Five Eyes country, they’re bound by those governments’ laws, meaning you can’t trust them to put your privacy first. It’s best to choose a VPN that isn’t based in a Five or Fourteen Eyes location

Security and encryption protocolsVPN providers generally use the OpenVPN protocol for traffic and encryption. There are other options that can exchange speed for added privacy, however, including SSH and SSL tunneling. Both are excellent alternatives when you need added security or anonymity

Payment methodsPaying for a VPN leaves a paper trail, especially if you use a credit card tied to your identity. By using a cryptocurrency such as bitcoin, you can get VPN service that isn’t directly associated with your name ExpressVPN is a well-established VPN provider with a great reputation for speed and security. You’ll never have a problem finding a fast server on the company’s network of 3,000 nodes in 94 different countries. Built-in speed test software lets you look at every connection’s download rate and latency scores, then switch to a better server in an instant. And because ExpressVPN offers unlimited bandwidth and no restrictions on P2P or torrent traffic, you’ll want every scrap of extra speed you can get!

Staying safe online isn’t a problem with ExpressVPN. Everything that leaves your computer is locked down by 256-bit AES encryption and backed by a zero-logging policy on traffic, DNS requests, and IP addresses. Custom software ensures your identity never escapes with both DNS leak protection and an automatic kill switch. ExpressVPN gives you the tools you need to defeat mass surveillance, all while enjoying a fast and unrestricted internet.

ExpressVPN features at a glance:

Anonymity features that keep your internet private, even in countries like China and Turkey

Accepts bitcoin payments through BitPay for easy and anonymous subscriptions

No restrictions on bandwidth, P2P network downloads or torrent traffic

Reliable access to Netflix streams through the website and apps

Chinese Government Combines "Track & Trace" COVID-System With Social Credit Score

by Tyler Durden Sat, 09/12/2020 - 21:30  Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

The Communist government of China has combined its coronavirus ‘track and trace’ system with the country’s notorious social credit score. As the Epoch Times’ Joshua Philipp explains, fears that the new COVID surveillance system would be used for “totalitarian social monitoring” are being realized in China.

The local government of China’s Jiangsu province has launched a new social control system that combines the CCP’s health code program with the regime’s social credit system to create what they’re calling a civilization code,” Philipp reported.

The new system ranks each citizen via a “civilization score” and then places them in a category which determines whether they get priority access to services or are punished and restricted.

The new system represents an expansion of the social credit score and is being initially rolled out in the city of Suzhou and will apply to everyone over the age of 18. In August 2019, the Communist state bragged about how it had prevented 2.5 million “discredited entities” from purchasing plane tickets and 90,000 people from buying high speed train tickets in the month of July alone.

As we document in the video below, the onerous social credit score system is literally designed to punish and socially ostracize dissidents who express controversial opinions.

In the age of social media deplatforming, an identical system is gradually being introduced in the west, where people who have been banned by social media networks for ‘offensive’ views are then also deplatformed by companies and banks. In the age of mass Silicon Valley censorship It is crucial that we stay in touch. I need you to sign up for my free newsletter here. Also, I urgently need your financial support here.

California’s wildfire smoke plumes are unlike anything previously seen

The Washington Post logo California’s wildfire smoke plumes are unlike anything previously seen

More than 3.1 million acres have burned in California this year, part of a record fire season that still has four months to go. A suffocating cloud of smoke has veiled the West Coast for days, extending more than a thousand miles above the Pacific. And the extreme fire behavior that’s been witnessed this year hasn’t just been wild — it’s virtually unprecedented in scope and scale. Fire tornadoes have spun up by the handful in at least three big wildfires in the past three weeks, based on radar data. Giant clouds of ash and smoke have generated lightning. Multiple fires have gone from a few acres to more than 100,000 acres in size in a day, while advancing as many as 25 miles in a single night. And wildfire plumes have soared up to 10 miles high, above the cruising altitude of commercial jets.

Western wildfires: An ‘unprecedented’ climate change-fueled event, experts say

Scientists have been scrambling to collect as much data on these wildfires as possible, hoping to unlock the secrets to their extreme behavior and fury. Among them is Neil Lareau, a professor of atmospheric sciences in the department of physics at the University of Nevada at Reno. Lareau closely studies pyrocumulus clouds, towering explosion-like plumes of heat that develop above intense blazes.

He retrieved data from the National Weather Service’s network of Doppler radars, which scan the skies every few moments at up to 15 different vertical angles. By stitching these different elevation “slices” together, he was able to produce a three-dimensional model of each smoke plume.

Wildfires and smoke plumes towering to new heights

Navigating this together

The Creek Fire, which has burned nearly 200,000 acres in the Sierra Nevada mountains, was only 6 percent contained on Friday. On Sept. 5, a day after it was first ignited, its smoke plume soared to 55,000 feet. That’s taller than many of the tornadic thunderstorms that roll across Oklahoma and Kansas each spring.

Such clouds are both indicators of and contributors to extreme fire behavior, such as rapid fire spread and the formation of fire vortices including tornadoes, along with other dynamics that are hazardous to firefighters and can imperil communities.

“Anecdotally, this is the deepest that I’ve seen,” said Lareau, who was shocked by the height achieved by the smoke plume. “It’s about a solid 10,000 feet higher than we’re typically seeing with the highest of these plumes.”

A heat wave and dry winds fuel wildfires in the West

Lareau says the extreme height is a testament to the fire’s rapid spread and release of heat.

“[That], as well as the large burning area, results in the total amount of heat being injected into the atmosphere just being tremendous,” said Lareau.

He also noted that the record-shattering heat wave in California, which brought Los Angeles County’s hottest ever measured temperature of 121 degrees on Sept. 6, also played a role in the “tremendous plume depth.”

A pocket of air will rise so long as it is warmer than its surroundings. Ordinarily, thunderstorm tops stop their vertical ascent at the tropopause, the threshold of the stratosphere, where environmental temperatures begin warming with height.

“But we’re beneath a record-setting ridge,” said Lareau, describing the strong high-pressure system that brought the record warmth. Because the air is so warm, it expands, causing the atmosphere to grow in height vertically.

“That’s going to have very high tropopause heights,” Lareau. “The background structure of the atmosphere and having these record … heights sets up the opportunity to have this really remarkable plume depth.”

Wildfires brew extreme fire behavior

In addition to the extreme fire heights, tornadic vortexes have been spotted by radar within three of this year’s colossal fires. The first, the Loyalton Fire in Lassen County, Calif., even prompted the National Weather Service to issue its first-ever fire tornado warning on Aug. 15.

Before 2020, only a few fires had ever produced documented fire tornadoes in the United States; now we’re seeing them every week or two. Lareau says the tremendous heights of the wildfires’ clouds, combined with more concerted and astute observation, are factors in the numerous fire tornadoes that have been reported this year. He thinks there may be some also truth to the apparent increase.

“We have a ton of eyes on every fire, looking at every frame, but still, we weren’t seeing these before,” he said. “And we’re seeing all too much of it right now. It’s rather worrying.”

The extreme fire behavior is so foreign and jarring that Lareau has found it a challenge to place it in context. “These are still real outlier events,” said Lareau. “The way I’ve been trying to think about it, if it’s a 1 in 100 event, now we have, what, 7,000 fires on the landscape? The opportunity to experience these extremes of fire weather are off the charts right now.”

Similarities to past events

The North Complex West, burning in the Sierras of California, bears striking similarities to the Carr Fire of 2018. That inferno, which produced a deadly fire tornado near the city of Redding in Northern California, killed three firefighters and five civilians.

(Matthew Cappucci/GR2 Analyst)

“I think [they’re] almost carbon copies of one another,” said Lareau. “You have the exact same direction of travel, same wind dynamics, same terrain, same fuels, very similar fire behavior.”

The Creek Fire, located farther south, has produced a number of clockwise-spinning fire tornadoes. That’s opposite to how most tornadoes spin in the Northern Hemisphere. Lareau is working with meteorologists from the National Weather Service, as well as research colleagues, to develop a conceptual model of how these rotating fire and smoke plumes behave.

He hopes that, in the not-too-distant future, it may be possible to forecast these events and issue warnings in advance.

Searching for a new understanding

While the radar animations Lareau produced are as aesthetically captivating as they are scientifically illustrative, he hopes that higher-resolution data, which is much tougher to come by, would provide atmospheric scientists with clearer insight as to how these fires behave under the hood. Ideally, he would target wildfires with ground-based mobile Doppler radars and remote sensing instruments mounted aboard aircraft.

“We’ve been proposing for three or four years now to do major field campaigns targeting these extreme behaviors,” said Lareau. “We’ve been arguing to the community that these are really vital data to collect.”

Thus far, funding has not been secured, but Lareau is hopeful.

“We really need to advance our understanding about what’s going on with the high-end fires.”

A Rundown Of Major U.S. Corporate Media’s Business Ties To China

It seems a number of major US media outlets have financial ties to the Chinese Communist Party, and it shows in their coverage.

By Chrissy Clark May 4, 2020

Despite the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) record of oppression, corporate media outlets are parroting the authoritarian government’s propaganda, even in the midst of an outbreak the CCP worsened through a cover-up. Many of those media outlets have financial ties to Chinese companies with intense oversight from the CCP.

“You often see representatives from American companies with financial ties to China naturally become defenders of the CCP’s policies and spreading the CCP’s propaganda,” said Helen Raleigh, an author and senior contributor at The Federalist who emigrated from China. “The financial tie means these Americans will be much less likely to challenge China’s human rights record or unacceptable demand such as technology transfer.” We do not know the extent of editorial oversight from corporations and individuals with financial incentives to placate the CCP, if any. But we know the incentives exist, and that’s worth understanding. Below is a breakdown of financial ties between major U.S. media organizations and the CCP.

The New York Times

Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim owns 17.4 percent of The New York Times through the company’s Class A shares. As the largest shareholder, his investment allows him to vote for approximately one-third of the company’s board.

In 2009, Slim loaned $250 million to The New York Times Company, the parent company of the New York Times. That same year, Slim purchased 15.9 million Class A shares of the company.

Slim has regularly conducted business with Chinese companies with overt ties to the CCP. In 2017, Slim’s Giant Motors joined ventures with China’s JAC Motors and began manufacturing cars in Mexico to sell in the Latin America Market. According to Forbes, the goal of selling to Latin America was to circumvent the Trump administration’s trade policies aimed at protecting American jobs — a move that benefited the Beijing in the Chinese-American trade wars.

According to Bloomberg Law, Slim’s company America Movil is teaming up with CCP telecommunication giant Huawei Technologies to pitch a 5G pilot project to the Colombian government this year. Huawei is actively working to undermine American security interests by overturning legislation in the United States that bans the use of Huawei’s 5G network.

Huawei seeks to overturn U.S. legislation that prohibits our federal government from using its equipment. This is a blatant attempt by an allegedly vital cog in the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) intelligence apparatus to avail itself of rights China would never confer on U.S. corporations––let alone its own citizens––in a bid to thwart America’s national security interests,” writes The Federalist’s Ben Weingarten.

Slim is making all kinds of lucrative business deals with the Chinese government while influencing the buiness side of The New York Times. He may not sit in on editorial meetings, but all the paper’s leaders certainly know who is funding their salaries.

The Washington Post

In 2013, Amazon CEO and billionaire Jeff Bezos purchased the Washington Post for $250 million cash. In January 2016, Bezos laid out a new business plan for the Post aimed at incorporating more technology.

Bezos has direct ties to the Chinese business market, which is regulated by the CCP. The production of Amazon’s most popular products—including the Amazon Echo and Kindle e-reader— take place almost exclusively in Chinese factories. According to Newsweek, Amazon’s products are produced by Chinese laborers who work long hours with low pay and little safety training.

Bezos has long tried to expand Amazon in the Chinese market as well, saying “Amazon is well-positioned to serve [China.]Bezos also backed a treaty between the United States and China allowed technology companies to increase business with China and provided a framework for U.S. tech companies to invest more in the Chinese economy.

After years of business in the Chinese market, Bezo’s ties with China are now evident in the Washington Post’s “advertisement” section.

When you purchase a Washington Post subscription, it comes with an advertising supplement called “China Watch.” According to Mark Hemingway at The Federalist, the Post’s “China Watch” supplement is courtesy of China Daily, a Chinese state-run media organization. The Washington Post openly accepts money for advertisements from the CCP and distributes Chinese propaganda.

CNN

CNN is owned and operated by WarnerMedia, which has significant financial and institutional ties to the CCP. In June 2013, WarnerMedia announced it had forged a partnership with a Chinese investment fund to the tune of $50 million. The funding would directly invest in the China Media Capital (CMC), a media company with oversight from the CCP, meaning it is subject to censorship and other demands to push Chinese propaganda.

WarnerMedia considers China a “partner” in their economic and cinematic ventures.

“Increasing our global presence is one of Time Warner’s strategic priorities and China is one of the most attractive territories in which we operate, but it’s complex. This alliance will give all our businesses a savvy and accomplished partner,” said WarnerMedia Chairman and Chief Executive Jeff Bewkes.

According to Raleigh, when American companies work with organizations such as CMC, they are subject to China’s use of its laws to advance its global objectives, including their cyber security law. This includes forced technology transfers, leaving companies and data subject to random searches from the CCP. Companies are also forced to build data centers in China, where the CCP can observe the data directly. All of this poses a national security risk for the United States.

CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker also has a connection with China. According to CNN, Zucker works internally with Turner Sports and is responsible for programming acquisitions, production, marketing, league relations, and sports advertisement sales. Turner Sports works directly with the NBA to broadcast games in China, meaning Zucker has ample business in the Middle Kingdom, where American businessmen seek to keep the CCP happy so the money keeps rolling.

A Fox NewsTucker Carlson Tonight” clip shows CNN singing praise for China over the coronavirus pandemic. In the clip, CNN anchors praise China for sending ventilators and masks to Europe while blaming the Trump administration for alleged poor leadership over the pandemicthe pandemic China allowed to spread worldwide.

Last week, CNN published a story praising China’s “model of control.” The Federalist’s Kylee Zempel writes that CNN is “parroting Chinese media’s duplicitous claims that the country sufficiently control of the virus, while downplaying the CCP’s role in spreading COVID-19 to the rest of the world.”

MSNBC & NBC

Both MSNBC and NBC News are operated by NBC Universal, a company with extensive financial ties to the CCP. In November 2010, NBC signed an agreement with China’s state-run media organization, Xinhua, to establish a business cooperation in international broadcast news. This was the latest market expansion by the CCP into American media.

Since the signing of the business deal, the U.S. State Department identified Xinhua and five other Chinese state-run media organizations as “foreign missions.” They have been identified as direct CCP operations and do not function as independent news outlets.

In 2015, NBC Universal agreed to license the Chinese tech company Baidu’s new video network platform iQIYI, which is listed on the NASDAQ and, thanks to NBC, advertises in Times Square in New York City.

Finally, CMC Capital Partners—a Beijing investment group with financial and technological oversight from the CCP—acquired full ownership of NBC Universal’s Oriental DreamWorks, according to the Hollywood Reporter. NBC Universal gained a 45 percent stake for a steep $3.8 billion.

ABC

The most obvious business ties between the American Broadcast Company (ABC) and China are through their ventures with Walt Disney and ESPN. Both companies have deep-rooted financial stakes in the Chinese economy controlled by the CCP.

In November 2009, the Chinese government approved plans to create a Disney World theme park in Shanghai. The project cost approximately $3.6 trillion, with financial help from several large Chinese state-owned enterprises. After construction was completed, Disney only retained 43 percent of the property, while the Communist Party-controlled Shanghai Shendi Group took the remaining 57 percent.

ESPN, another entity of ABC, was caught doing the bidding of the Chinese government in October 2019. When the NBA controversially refused to denounce the CCP for financial benefit, ESPN stood with the NBA to keep financial revenue on track for the 2019 fiscal year. ESPN bowed to the Chinese government for profit motives when the network’s senior news director reportedly instructed staff to avoid discussing Chinese politics if they were asked about Chinese politics or Daryl Morey’s pro-Hong Kong tweet.

According to Raleigh, American companies establish these financial ties with Chinese companies to gain access to China’s massive consumer market of 1.4 billion people. ABC subsidiaries such as ESPN and ABC News need to appease the CCP, whether it be via positive news coverage or complying with cyber security laws, to keep their programs on Chinese screens and thus make money in the Chinese market.

Per Emily Jashinsky at The Federalist, ABC’s cozy relationship with China also translates to the way China is portrayed in the American box office. This is best exemplified by Disney’s relatively new release of “Mulan.” To maintain access to the Chinese market, where profits are huge, American film companies like Disney censor their work, before or after production, to appease the CCP.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced legislation which cuts off Department of Defense assistance to any U.S. movie studio that allows China to censor their content. The bill is called the “Stopping Censorship, Restoring Integrity, Protecting Talkies,” Act.

Hollywood films commonly work with the Pentagon and Defense Department to use American assets for props such as jets, tanks, and naval bases. Cruz’s SCRIPT legislation would only allow the Defense Department to contract with companies that do not allow China to censor their content.

These same organizations work directly with ABC News abroad. According to veteran ABC correspondent David Wright, ABC and its affiliates are inextricably linked. In an investigative report by Project Veritas, Wright admitted ABC was a profit center, not a beacon of truthful journalism.

“[ABC] became a profit center, a promotion center. Like now, you can’t watch ‘Good Morning America’ without there being a Disney princess or a Marvel Avenger appearing. It’s all self-promotional and promotion of the company,” Wright said.

What benefits ABC’s company is bending a knee to the CCP in exchange for more money, despite the price it puts on journalist’s ability to report truth and hold those in power to account.

Bloomberg

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his company Bloomberg LP are heavily invested in China. Bloomberg LP sells terminals to their website through the Chinese market and helps finance Chinese companies by sending billions of dollars from U.S. investors to the Chinese bond market.

Bloomberg LP supported 364 Chinese firms and directed approximately $150 billion into their bond offerings. Of these companies, 159 were controlled directly by the CCP.

An newly released exposé from NPR shows the depths Bloombergs News dove to appease the the CCP. In 2014, Bloomberg killed an investigation into the wealth of CCP elites. The company used a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to not only silence the Beijing-based reporter, but also his wife, who never worked for Bloomberg.

Correspondent Mike Forsythe focused on exposing Chinese President Xi Jinping’s ties to the country’s richest man, Wang Jianlin. When the story was ready for publication, founding editor-in-chief Matthew Winkler told Forsythe he was crushing the story to avoid angering the CCP.

It is for sure going to, you know, invite the Communist Party to, you know, completely shut us down and kick us out of the country. So, I just don’t see that as a story that is justified,” Winkler said.

After the story was squashed, the company threatened to sue Forsythe and his wife if they spoke out about Winkler killing the story.

Mike Bloomberg himself has been a CCP apologist. He’s personally lobbied against President Trump’s trade negotiations with China and applauds the CCP. Bloomberg claims Xi Jinping is not a dictator.

“The Communist Party wants to stay in power in China and they listen to the public,” Bloomberg said. “Xi Jinping is not a dictator. He has to satisfy his constituents or he’s not going to survive.”

According to a new Department of Homeland Security report obtained by the Associated Press, Beijing hid the severity of the coronavirus to hoard protective medical supplies in early January and February. Yet, corporate media are bending over backwards to avoid negative press coverage of China during the coronavirus pandemic.

Examining these financial ties may explain why China is receiving such glowing coverage during a pandemic of their own making.

A 'firenado' has been captured on camera in California as wildfires tear through large swathes of the west coast, killing at least 35 people.

Footage showing a wildfire meeting a column of air to create a tornado-like effect was posted on TikTok on Thursday went viral over the weekend.

Social media users nicknamed the state 'Hellifornia', with one writing: "2020 said 'Hey, y'all know what's missing? A firenado! That would be so awesome! I got the perfect place, too. Here me out...."' one person wrote.

Another posted to Twitter: '2020 is something straight out of a dark science fiction novel, y'all ever seen a tornado on fire?'

The clip was posted as firefighters in California were bracing for a shift in weather that could bring stronger winds Monday and stoke dozens of fires still raging across the state. California this week experienced what's being dubbed a 'firenado'. The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for Northern California through Monday night, saying strong southerly winds and low humidity will result in elevated fire weather conditions across the region California this week experienced what's being dubbed a 'firenado'.

Borsum added that the air quality in the region may not improve until October.

More than 16,750 firefighters were doing battle with fires that had already killed 22 people, destroyed more than 4,100 structures and engulfed scores of communities from the Oregon border to Mexico.

Then a Northern California sheriff said Sunday that two more people have died from wildfires, bringing the state's total death toll to 24. Oregon had 10 fatalities and a one-year-old boy died in Washington.

The fires on the West Coast have been among the worst ever recorded. In California over 3.2 million acres were charred last month. There was also a warning in effect in Oregon on Sunday night after the weather service said that the wind, humidity and fire danger will 'likely contribute to a significant spread of new and existing fires.'

Gusts of wind are expected to reach up to 40 mph.

At least 10 people were killed in wildfires that burned the past week throughout Oregon where 35 fires have devastated 902,620 acres.  Officials have said more people are missing from other blazes and the number of fatalities is likely to rise.

Andrew Phelps, Oregon's emergency management director, said that the state was preparing for a 'mass fatality incident.' 'There are going to be a number of fatalities, folks who just couldn't get warning in time and evacuate their homes and get to safety,' Phelps told MSNBC on Friday.

One resident told Reuters about the scene in the town of Pheonix, 'It looks like a war just happened here,'

The fire melted the motor right out of my truck - it drained down the driveway,' said Manson, a 43-year-old construction worker. 'I lost everything. I lost all my tools. My truck. I can't work. I lost $30,000 worth of guitars. All gone.'

Nearly a week after wildfires ignited across Oregon, which forced thousands of residents to flee their homes, firefighters spent Sunday setting and holding containment lines and starting to assess the damage. Upper McKenzie Rural Fire Chief Christiana Rainbow Plews and several of her colleagues in Oregon lost their homes in the Holiday Farm Fire.

She left her home to respond to a downed power line and said the fire it caused quickly spread, making her issue a level 3 evacuation order within a couple of hours.

'I not only have my life to put back together, I also have a fire department to put back together,' Plews told NBC News. 'And I honestly don't know how I'm going to do that.'

She said many people on her team worked a week straight with only a 24 hour rest period by Sunday when the blaze had burned 161,872 acres and was only five per cent contained.

The US Forest Service said weather conditions in areas of the state, which include mist and favorable wind, was helping to limit the rapid spread of the blaze and dispersing smoke and fog to better firefighting conditions.

Two of the Oregon's largest fires that continue to threaten communities in Clackamas and Marion Counties remained completely uncontained Sunday, but more favorable weather and an easing of some evacuation warnings in areas indicate an improving situation.

One of the large fires ravaging the area, the Riverside Fire was still within half a mile of the small city of Estacada, but the spread of the blaze has slowed.

In Marion County, where firefighters have been battling the Lionshead and Beachie Creek fires, evacuation levels of several cities were reduced during the weekend.

People in central and northeast Oregon, including in Eugene, Portland and Salem, continued to face hazardous air quality Sunday.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality reported Air Quality Index numbers that were off the chart.  Air Quality Index is considered hazardous between 301 and 500. Portland´s index is currently at 426.  Values above 500 - which two cities, Madras and Roseburg both reported having - are beyond the index´s scale.

Officials advised people to stay indoors and that the low visibility, caused by fog and smoke, is creating hazardous driving conditions. In Salem, where the Air Quality Index is 394, a dense smokey haze that clouded roads and homes made it difficult to see further than 50 yards ahead.

The National Weather Service in Portland reported that rain is expected Monday night, which could help clear smoke in Oregon next week. Almost a dozen cats rescued amid scorching wildfires in Oregon are being cared for at a veterinary hospital and staff members have posted their photos on social media hoping to reunite them with their owners.

The cats have burned paws covered in bandages. Some of their bellies are seared and, in one case, a cat nicknamed Depot because he was found by the Home Depot, is hooked up to oxygen because its lungs suffered damage from the hot smoke.

Rory Applegate, a veterinarian at Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center, says staff members are working even though some of them have had to evacuate or had family impacted by the blazes.

Applegate says the fires are a 'huge emotional toll' on the staff but they are balancing out the management of critical patients and making sure they can stay stable themselves.

She said she expects animals to feel the impact of the heavy smoke in the coming days, too.

A MAN’S GOTTA KNOW HIS LIMITATIONS

As I’ve been observing the actions and justifications of men like Jerome Powell, Anthony Fauci, Andrew Cuomo, Joe Biden and Donald Trump during this self-inflicted global depression, I can’t help but channel the iconic American actor Clint Eastwood and his most famous role – Dirty Harry, when assessing whether they have an understanding of their limitations. If a man doesn’t know his limitations, he can ruin his own life.

When men in positions of immense power don’t know their limitations, they can ruin the world, destroying the lives of millions and propelling the world towards a catastrophic financial collapse and likely global conflict. Our benevolent leaders act as if they know what is best for mankind, when they are actually flailing about blindly, corrupted by their own power and wealth, leading us on a path to destruction, because their immense egos won’t allow them to humbly admit their dreadful mistakes and take corrective actions.

The second Dirty Harry movie, Magnum Force, came out in 1974, with Harry taking on vigilante cops in San Francisco. His lieutenant, played by Hal Holbrook, tries to keep Harry off the case of bad guys being executed by the lieutenant’s squad of dirty cops, using the logic that Harry posed a risk to society by not following proper police and justice procedures. It’s funny how people in positions of power accuse others of doing what they in fact are doing themselves. In a condescending tone, the lieutenant boasts that he has never had to take his gun out of his holster as he has risen to a rank above Harry’s. The sarcastic response from Harry shows his contempt for those not willing to do the dirty work, keeping the streets safe from criminals:

“You’re a good man lieutenant. A good man always knows his limitations.”

At the end of the movie, after Harry has killed all the vigilante cops, the lieutenant pulls a gun on Harry and smugly tells him he will frame him for the murder of the cops. He then gets into the car Harry had been driving, not knowing Harry had activated a mailbox bomb and tossed it into the back seat. As he slowly drives away, the bomb goes off, killing the lieutenant. Another Dirty Harry happy ending. The movie ends with Harry saying: “A man’s gotta know his limitations.” That phrase keeps popping into my mind lately. Watching the world burn while what amounts to leadership bloviates, lies, misinforms, and makes decisions which condemn the masses to a future of poverty, homelessness, violent upheaval, and an economy gutted by reckless central bankers and feckless politicians, is infuriating to critical thinking rational people. I’m constantly baffled by the lack of forethought regarding how actions taken today by leaders, to supposedly alleviate problems created by their previous solutions, will lead to long-term disaster.

I used to blame these decisions on stupidity and incompetence. But I now attribute it to malice of forethought, driven by greed, envy and a sociopathic desire for power and control over others. Those chosen to hold the key positions in government, central banking, and in the media are hand-picked and groomed by shadowy billionaire types whose agenda is to reap riches, hijack the financial system and exercise control over the population.

The year 2020 has revealed the type of men we’ve allowed to control our economy, our government and our lives. We have become a nation of willfully ignorant, technology addicted, moronic dupes, being led down a path to destruction by sociopathic egomaniacal traitors to our country. These men have a high opinion of their intellectual talents and arrogantly believe they know the answers to all the questions and confidently put forth solutions designed to benefit themselves and those they serve – not you.

This is not a new development for mankind. Greed, envy and desire for control have driven a minority of men throughout history. A sociopath has no empathy for other human beings. They have no conscience, therefore have no qualms about lying, stealing, sending men to their deaths for oil or destroying the lives of millions. Their hubris and arrogance always lead to their downfall because they are incapable of the self-reflection necessary to understand their limitations. There are three men, among many, who history will treat poorly when the story of 2020 is written (depending on who writes it). Anthony Fauci, Andrew Cuomo and Jerome Powell are men with high IQs, large egos, slaves to reputational accolades and used by the billionaires running this planet to implement their plans to control the world. Are they just pawns or active participants in the conspiracy to financially, politically, socially medically and militarily enslave the population of the planet through false narratives and financial engineering designed to impoverish the many and enrich the few?

It’s a question that reverberates through my mind constantly, as I watch in disbelief while these men continually do the exact opposite of what needs to be done to improve the lives of Americans and blatantly lie, misinform, and obscure the truth. Not being a sociopath, it is difficult for me to comprehend what drives men like these. It appears power to rule over others, admiration from the masses, corporate media enhanced status, wealth seeking, an over-inflated opinion of their intellectual talents and an inability to acknowledge their own limitations are their key traits. They have no second thoughts about sacrificing you at the altar of their gods – corporate billionaire oligarchs.

Anthony Fauci has been a government bureaucrat in charge of the U.S. infectious diseases department for the last thirty-six years. You can only last that long in one position by pleasing those who matter. In a rational world his performance over the last year would be considered disastrous, since his organization failed to see the pandemic coming, ignored it when the WHO and China conspired to cover it up, had absolutely no plans in place to combat it, downplayed the threat into early March, told people masks were useless (they are) before demanding the whole nation mask up, used the ridiculous Neil Ferguson model predicting 2 million deaths to convince the country to lockdown, has continuously provided conflicting advice, and has contributed greatly to the biggest economic collapse since the Great Depression.

He is clearly a tool of the left as he is a big fan of Hillary Clinton and does the bidding of Bill Gates on the need for a vaccine for a flu that will not kill 99.9% of all Americans. He clearly loves the limelight, appearing on dozens of TV shows every week, as his bureaucrat ego grows in proportion to the accolades he receives from the corporate media and the sheep who worship at the feet of the lockdown cult. He portrays himself as a scientist following the facts. He wasn’t lying about masks back in March.

The CDC’s own literature prior to the pandemic said masks are useless in stopping the spread of viruses, because they are. If he was a real scientist following the data, he would humbly admit Sweden was right all along, with no lockdown, no mandatory masking, no school shutdowns, and developing herd immunity as the infection rate reached 20%. The vulnerable (old and those with pre-existing conditions) should have quarantined and the young and healthy should have gone on with our lives. He is too proud and agenda driven to ever admit he was appallingly wrong. His guidance during this pandemic has been as accurate as his pitching. Fauci and his acolytes have convinced the masses masking protects them as a way to exercise control and conformity, testing the limits of governmental authority. Compliance with the tyrannical dictates of governors and health “experts” (who are uniformly unhealthy looking) is a test run for further mandates and forced vaccines. For doing his part on behalf of Gates and the other billionaire oligarchs, Fauci will reap riches, with book deals, positions on drug company boards, speaking fees at healthcare conferences and TV appearances.

Fauci’s inability to realize his limitations and/or his moral failing as a supposedly neutral scientist have led to death and economic destruction on a far greater scale than if he had admitted what he did not know and didn’t fear monger the nation into a complete shutdown. The suicides, riot death and destruction, undiagnosed cancer and heart disease deaths, mental health epidemic, millions of jobs lost and hundreds of thousands of small business closures are real blood on his hands.

Andrew Cuomo is a particularly vile character whose enormous ego is so inflated it convinces him to write a book in the midst of the pandemic about what a stupendous job he did by having the largest number of Covid-19 deaths in the nation, by far, and murdering thousands of nursing home residents by purposely directing infected patients back into the nursing homes. I wonder how a man like this can sleep at night, with that many corpses on his conscience. But there is the answer.

Sociopaths have no conscience. Cuomo is so arrogant and self-loving; he actually believes he’s done an outstanding job. He believes he’s earned his position of governor when he rode the coattails of his daddy’s name recognition. He married a Kennedy (who he eventually divorced) and asked journalists how it would play, before proposing. He is nothing more than an ambitious self-promoting climber, willing to do anything to get ahead. Some animals are more equal than others when it comes to masking. As with the other left-wing governors (Murphy, Wolf, Witmer, Newsome), Cuomo became intoxicated with the power he assumed during this pandemic. Governors are essentially figureheads during normal times. They rarely impact the day to day lives of their constituents. But, with the panic induced by medical “experts” and Trump buying into the end of the world scenarios from purposely faulty models, governors and mayors throughout the country assumed almost dictatorial power to control our lives, with threats of imprisonment or fines for not following their authoritarian decrees. They have had no legislative or judicial checks on their illegal mandates.

Cuomo was clearly inebriated with the attention he got from his daily briefings, copying Trump’s daily updates. He invoked a draconian lockdown, blamed the Feds for all his shortfalls, invoked fear among the populace rather than portraying the required stoicism, rational consideration of risks, and fortitude in the face of uncertainty. This maniacal blowhard has the gall to take a victory lap and ridicule other governors when his death count is twice any other state and three times as high as the states he has scorned. If this man was capable of self-reflection, he would be on his knees begging forgiveness from thousands of families for his fatal error of putting infected patients into nursing homes, sentencing thousands of seniors to death. Instead he glories in the accolades of the left-wing media, who ignore his disastrous decisions, and support his claims Trump is to blame. Even though lockdowns have proven to be the wrong solution, Fauci proclaims Cuomo’s actions as an outstanding response to the pandemic.

I guess destroying the economy of the world financial capital, presiding over a self-imposed mass death event, encouraging BLM and ANTIFA terrorists to riot, murder and destroy businesses, and treating the public like pawns in a political game, constitutes success in Cuomo world. Cuomo’s limitations are many and his talents few, but he would never admit it. Mencken’s words from decades ago have never been truer:

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

That brings us to Jerome Powell, the man who sold the world. How could a man with such an undistinguished career of working as an underling on Wall Street and as a mid-level government bureaucrat, become the most important man in the world? As with his two predecessors, Yellen and Bernanke, they all had the mundane unimpressive careers of academics and bureaucrats. None of them distinguished themselves as brilliant thinkers or leaders. They fit Taleb’s description as IYI (intellectual yet idiot).

They all achieved “success” by playing the game, ingratiating themselves to the ruling class, and proving to be pliable tools to those pulling the strings. The reward for doing the bidding of the banking cabal and billionaire oligarchs running the Deep State is fame, media accolades, book deals, positions on boards, outrageous speaking “fees” (aka payoffs) and wealth they never dreamed of. Bernanke made more for giving a one-hour speech at a Bank of America conference than he was paid annually as chairman of the Federal Reserve. Bernanke didn’t allow the creative destruction of capitalism to put a recklessly corrupt organization like Bank of America out of business, and reaped riches for doing so. Powell knows who butters his bread and will be compensated handsomely for saving the Wall Street cabal once again, while throwing Main Street and senior citizens under the bus.

As you can see from the chart below, the Fed Funds rate averaged between 4% and 5% from 1990 through 2008. A senior citizen could get a similar return on a safe money market fund, to supplement their Social Security. But thanks to Bernanke, Yellen and Powell, rates have essentially been zero for over a decade. These actions have benefited their true constituency – criminal bankers, hedge fund managers, wealthy oligarchs, mega-corporations, and politicians. They have impoverished the middle class, encouraged market speculation rather than capital investment and destroyed the retirements of low-income senior citizens. They are solely responsible for the greatest level of wealth inequality in history. They have created two bubbles (2000, 2008) with their easy money policies which burst, leading to widespread economic destruction. But those bubbles pale in comparison to the world destroying bubble they have created as the “solution” to their last bubble. Powell and his compadres have created a financial system so fragile that it couldn’t handle interest rates at 2.5%. By handle, I mean the stock market threw a tantrum and the spineless Wall Street lackey Powell did what he was told and started to cut rates in the summer of 2019. Something broke within the fetid rigged machinery of financial market chicanery in September, with overnight repo rates soaring to 10% – a level reflecting the true risk in the markets. Rates reflecting the true market risk are unacceptable to the powers that be. Powell was already doing the bidding of his bosses by lowering rates into the year-end and conducting stealth QE, while denying it was QE.

Powell is not a dumb man. He knows a country cannot run up it’s national credit card without negative consequences at some point – default, currency collapse, hyperinflation, civil chaos, global conflict. It would require a man of courage, fortitude and morality to stand up to the evil forces controlling the systematic pillaging of the nation. Powell is not that man.

His limitations are self-evident, as he has put the country on a path to destruction, while exacerbating the gulf between the Haves (Powell’s people) and the Have Nots (you and me). His monetary machinations have fueled the riots roiling the country, which is possibly exactly what his oligarch superiors desire. If the country is distracted by false narratives about systematic racism, with fighting in the streets, the systematic reaping of the national wealth can go on behind the curtain. Powell has made a mockery of price discovery by buying up one third of the mortgages in the country, billions in junk bonds of companies that should be bankrupt, and convincing unemployed Robinhood day traders that stocks only go up, because Powell will rescue them if stocks start to drop. After observing the clearly desperate actions taken by Powell to prop up his Wall Street puppeteers, under the cover of a pandemic, one must wonder whether he has been threatened to do so or actually believes his traitorous actions are beneficial to the country.

By lowering rates to zero, expanding his balance sheet by $3 trillion in a matter of months, enabling the Federal government to run $3 trillion deficits, and providing the fuel for an epic stock, real estate, and bond bubble, Powell is solely responsible for the banquet of consequences we will experience. Powell has pushed all his chips on the table. A man of much higher character and intellect than this cowardly Powell character explained what will happen seven decades ago:

“There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.” – Ludwig von Mises, Human Action [1949]

When this Powell created bubble explodes, there will be many Dirty Harry type characters cracking a wry smirk and saying, “a man’s gotta know his limitations”.

Unlke the Frog with Cognitive Dissonance, Are You Going to Jump Out of the Boiling Pot While You Still Can?

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Monday, September 14, 2020 - 14:15.

In my role as an investigator and interviewer, I am constantly talking to economists who truly have handle on what is going on. What have I learned? I have learned that most Americans are dumber than a box of rocks when it comes to the economy, myself included until I started paying attention. Most people have no clue. Is it their fault? Yes and no. Real money principles are not taught in school, but one would think that by a certain age, people would ask questions because we are playing in such a rigged game.

The purpose is of this article is to shed light on some of the following concepts:

The state of the American economy and how the intelligent person will distance themselves as quickly as possible.

The realization that the American empire is over. Just like Rome the Bread and Circus is among us. The NBA, NFL and MLB are now open for business (so much for the Coronavirus threat).

Discuss which businesses are actually making money. Millionaires are being created in the middle of the lockdown. If only the people knew….A new and much smaller economy is emerging that is replacing the large and failing economy.

What investment opportunities provide the most hope in the new and emerging economy

How “incorrect” political views and food are two major, life-threatening dangers that will soon confront most Americans.

Americans will be controlled by mandatory vaccines and food shortages.

The State of the American Economy

Anyone who saves money and keeps it in a bank is doing exactly what the globalists want. The dollar is not real, it is dead, it is a zombie. Let’s look at some economic facts and please keep in mind that this is only the sampler plate:

No nation’s economy has ever recovered from a debt to GDP ratio of 90%. Thanks to the 2009 bailouts, the credit swap derivatives ponzi schemes and the Great Lockdown of 2020, followed by the stimulus money, the new debt to GDP ratio is 115%. America is done; All that is left is for the debt and the value of the currency to completely unravel.

If you are keeping your money in the bank, you helping to fund the decline of the US because you are helping to fund your own demise. Your money is worthless. Yet, we are told work hard and save. Richard Nixon took America off of the Gold Standard in 1971. He did that so the Deep State interests of the day could print endless amounts of money. That has made your money worthless. The dollar is fake. You are working for fake money.

Gold, silver and perhaps bitcoin is real money. Gold is God’s money. It has held its value for 6,000 years. Why aren’t you taught this?

Stocks are fake! Why is Warren Buffet selling his bank stocks? Buffet is buying as much gold as possible. There are niches in the stock market where people can make money with the right strategy but these opportunities are few and far between. We have become a market of stocks not a viable stock market. Bezos and friends know this fact and this is why good ole Jeff is the world’s first trillionaire.

America is $30 million dollars in debt and we are cruising to an altitude of $36 trillion in debt. No nation can survive this debt given the fact that the entire tangible value of the planet is worth about $80-90 trillion.

As a benchmark, the state of pensions for police and fire personnel is noteworthy. Before the lockdowns, the pensions have been raped by the elite. For every $100 owed in a pension, there was actually $16 dollars in the pension. Today, after the lockdowns, the amount has shrunk to $6! There are no pensions left! Social Security is almost gone. Medicare is hopelessly broke. There is no money for welfare, infrastructure repairs and most of all, our military budget is ready to collapse and this will put every American at severe risk in this country as the CHICOMS and the Russians are licking their chops.

What about banks? Have you ever played dominos?

What about real estate? Have you ever played dominos?

Who Is Making Money On the Present Crisis?

Is anyone making money during the lockdown? The answer is yes. However, and unfortunately for our military security, none of the “new” economy has anything to do with manufacturing. Americans are making absolutely nothing!!! Look at military history and then you tell me what that means.

Here are three areas where tomorrow’s millionaires and billionaires are being created:

Online creators on the net are experiencing an average of 22% traffic since the lockdowns

Gamers profits are at an all-time high with as much as a 75% increase. E-sports are exploding. Even ESPN is getting into covering this industry.

Delivery companies, often who serve food, are exploding. Amazon is hiring hundreds of thousands of workers.

What do these businesses have in common?

First of all, the people making money during the lockdowns are the owners of internet businesses. Yes, they are not working for worthless dollars. They are working for themselves. However, if they merely bank their money, or over-invest in the market (aka stay in the system), as prevailing strategies, they will give away all of their money at some point, because the dollar is in the process of crashing. However, these internet entrepreneurs are the oil barons of the 21st century and if they buy gold and silver they will be the new rich. This is where the future wealth is along with the medical industry, however, that market is locked up and reserved for the old money crowd.

What is really interesting is that even if the economy was to go back to normal, and it will not, this is the trend of the future. Brick and mortar stores are history and are on life-support. This is often called the Amazonfication of the economy. Did you know that there are over 20,000 third party Amazon sellers making over $1 million dollars per year? E-books and DYI materials are the primary products fueling this move. Retail can make no such claims. There are some important lessons here. First, the old economy is dead. Working for someone else is a fool’s errand and saving fake dollars is dumber than dumb.

There is no question that one needs operating capital and that includes cash. However, you will some day lose that money and it will shrink in value each and every single day. Keep a month’s supply of cash so you can pay your bills. You would be wise, again, to invest in gold and silver and then hide it. I expect as the digital currency becomes a reality as a response to the world’s fiat currencies failing, hording gold and silver will be outlawed as it has been before. However, just like previous gold ownership laws fade away when the elite have transferred the middleclass wealth to their accounts, the prohibitions on precious metals will be lifted.

There is one additional element that I have learned in my collective conversations with various economists. If one did save money, prior to the lockdown, there are huge opportunities available in areas such as real estate. However, I recommend that you let the stimulus payments and eviction prohibitions pass before endeavoring to invest. Due to the eviction moratoriums, many upper-middle persons are going broke because they mortgage payments on properties are not producing income from renters, but this will pass. Remember the Federal Reserve has acquired 33% of the mortgages in America and when they reach the saturation point, these eviction moratoriums will end. Investing in tents may be a good investment in 2021.

How will the elite keep you under control? They will promise Universal Basic Income. How long do you think that these Fabian Socialists will honor this commitment to the “useless eaters”?

When the fake promises end, they will control the masses through food shortages, mandatory vaccines and all of this will add up to slow-burn genocide!

Food Shortages

Have you noticed spot shortages in food, particularly meat? Have you noticed shrinkflation is here? Packaging is getting smaller to hide the food inflation being caused by a contrived shortage. This is a planned and contrived shortage. When COVID-19 hit, most of the meat packing plants closed. This was a false flag event. The National Guard could have been brought in, in hazmat suits if need be, and kept the plants running. Instead, farmers were forced to kill millions of cattle and chickens and the shortages occurred.

The supply chain is in chaos, bad weather has destroyed millions of farm acreage in America and nobody is paying attention.

My advice is to store food and hide food and do the same with your guns and ammo for all the apparent reasons.

Mandatory Vaccines

Any Bill Gates vaccine brings misery and potentially death. Before you make the easy choice and give in and take a vaccine, you may wish to consider the long-term consequences. Many researchers have exposed the Gates agenda. You may wish to review before succumbing to the pressure. You really need to get rural. It is not a guarantee of survival, but your odds go up dramatically/

Do you know why farming communities are generally independent and resistant to tyranny? Because they live remotely, they are not prone to real controls because their lives are not under scrutiny as they would be if they lived in cities. Using this principle, one would be better off going off grid. Raise your food. Start an internet business based on DYI and/or gaming. Along these lines, homeschool your children. When the debilitating vaccines are made mandatory, you are only vulnerable if you are totally in the system where they can keep you from buying and selling. This should be every American’s goal and become as invisible as possible.

Conclusion Things are not going back to normal, ever! Read Revelations and you will see why!!!

One would be wise to remember that the Bible commands to head to the hills for safety. I will raise beats and corn before I take a vaccine. I will head to the hills.

Also, adaptation is the order of the day. It is too late for me, however, if I were all of you, I would say stop posting on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as you are putting a target on your back and that of your family. I am not saying give up, but losing your life over your words is not worth it. When the civil war comes, you will be forced to decide and then your defiance takes on a more meaningful position.

Resist everything for now. If you can end the facemask debacle, you keep the globalists one step away from completely subjugating you.

Pro-abortion Biden is no ‘ally of the light’ but a friend of darkness

Scripture warns God-fearing men and women to be on the lookout for those who 'put darkness for light, and light for darkness'

Fri Aug 21, 2020 - 3:41 pm EST

August 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — During his acceptance speech at the widely-criticized Democratic National Convention last night, 77-year-old Joe Biden promised that if he was elected the next president of the United States he’d be “an ally of the light, not the darkness.”

“I will draw on the best of us, not the worst,” the former Vice President said. “I’ll be an ally of the light, not the darkness…make no mistake, united we can and will overcome this season of darkness in America.”

The convention drove the point home all week that Biden is the candidate who will restore America to a more wholesome period. Michelle Obama called him a “profoundly decent” human being in her remarks while video montages shared stories about Biden’s Catholic upbringing and his friendship with Republican lawmakers like John McCain.

There’s only one major problem here: The past four years haven’t been a period of darkness…and Joe Biden is anything but a light-bearer. Not only is Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris puppets for the open borders, Wall Street, Chamber of Commerce crowd, he’s an angel of death whose presidency would hasten the demise of the United States. Think I’m being too extreme? Here’s just a few of the many anti-Christian policies Joe Biden has promised to support if elected:

He wants abortion on demand until birth.

He would restore billions of dollars to Planned Parenthood.

He’s promised to force religious groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor to violate their conscience and provide abortion-inducing drugs.

He’s pledged to pass the pro-LGBT, anti-religious liberty “Equality Act.”

And that’s just the beginning. During his 40+ years in elected office, Biden’s voted for bills that have undermined middle-class families and communities. He supported NAFTA, helped make China an economic superpower, and has waged an imperialist foreign policy that has put young American boys and girls into harm's way. He’ll continue these disastrous policies should he win the presidency. Moreover, Biden has failed to condemn Antifa and the violent mobs destroying American cities these last few months. How is he in any way “an ally of the light”?

Scripture tells us there are four sins that cry to heaven for vengeance, two of which are homosexual acts and murder. It also says “righteousness exalts a nation but sin makes a nation miserable” (Proverbs 14:34.) The pro-gay, pro-abortion, anti-family policies promoted by Joe Biden would not only lead the United States away from God, but would bring down His wrath upon it. “Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness,” Isaiah 5:20 says.

Contrast the anti-Christian country a Biden administration would usher in with the following policies and actions taken by President Trump over these last “dark” four years:

He denied the United Nations millions in taxpayer dollars for abortion.

He spoke at the 2020 March for Life and adressed the 2019 March for Life by video.

He visited Catholic churches and promised to prosecute those who commit ‘sacrilegious acts’ of vandalism.

He delivered a pro-God, pro-Christianity speech in Poland in 2017.

He’s rooted out human traffickers and other abusers.

He defended the religious liberty of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

He called churches “essential” during COVID-19 while Democratic governors sought to shut them down.

He stood in solidarity with people of faith by holding up a Bible outside a Washington D.C. church attacked by Antifa.

He thanked Archbishop Vigano for his letter exposing the “Deep Church” and the “Deep State.”

He’s worked to protect American workers and has pressured U.S. companies that ship job overseas.

While there are many more things President Trump (who, admittedly, has not been perfect on social issues) needs to do, he’s infinitely more “an ally of the light” than Joe Biden. Americans need to reject this false Democratic narrative.

DHS Proposes Massive Expansion Of “Biometric Modality” Collection

By Tyler Durden - September 14, 2020

Does anyone really believe America is still the land of the free?

What first seemed like a gradual slide in the federal government’s use of biometrics is quickly becoming supercharged in a post-pandemic world.

Readers may recall since 9/11, DHS, the FBI, the CIA, and other alphabet soup agencies have transformed America into a surveillance state that could be on par with China in the coming years.

Activity in DNA and biometric-gathering by the federal government is set to surge. The DHS recently announced a “notice of proposed rulemaking” that outlines the agency could enlarge its collection of biometrics data by at least 2 million submissions annually. The 328-page draft of the new rule (found here) proposes to amend existing DHS regulations “concerning the use and collection of biometrics in the enforcement and administration of immigration laws by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).” The National Law Review highlights the key points in the forthcoming rule:

Unless waived by DHS, any applicant, petitioner, sponsor, beneficiary, or individual filing or associated with an immigration benefit or request, including U.S. citizens, must appear for biometrics collection – regardless of age.

There will be new biometrics modalities, including iris scans, palm prints, and voiceprints.

DHS may require DNA results to prove the existence of a claimed genetic relationship.

Foreign nationals who are granted immigration benefits will be subject to continued and subsequent vetting and biometric evaluation until granted U.S. citizenship.

New forms will be produced, including the new biometrics requirements.

The DHS proposes to change the definition of the word “biometrics” to “the measurable biological (anatomical and physiological) or behavioral characteristics used for identification of an individual.”

Noted in the highlight section above, the DHS wants to add palm prints, photographs for facial recognition, voiceprints, iris images, and DNA to determine genetic similarities to its pre-existing biometric database, which include collecting fingerprints and signatures of immigrants.

The rule estimates the number of annual biometrics screenings will soar from 3.9 million to 6.07 million. The collection rate will rise from 46% to over 70%.

The agency is interested in expanding its biometrics capabilities for family-based benefit requests, mostly for citizenship, immigration, refugee, and asylee relative forms.

“The rule will allow immediately for DHS, in its discretion, to request, require, or accept DNA or DNA test results, which include a partial DNA profile, for individual benefit requests requiring proof of a genetic relationship,” the notice read.

The cost of the biometrics rule over the decade could range from $3.2 billion to nearly $5 billion, all dependent on how many collections are submitted. Could DHS’ proposed biometrics expansion prelude the agencies eventual grab of “259 million people in its biometrics database by 2022“?

Police: Man arrested for starting several small fires next to I-205 in Portland

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A 45-year-old man was arrested Sunday evening and then again Monday morning after Portland police say he lit several fires along Interstate 205. The Portland Police Bureau said officers responded to assist Portland Fire & Rescue at 4:35 p.m. Sunday to a reported brush fire in the 9600 block of East Burnside Street. At the scene, officers found a section of grass along the I-205 freeway that was burning. Firefighters extinguished the fire. Police said no one was injured and no structures were damaged in the fire. About an hour later, officers were flagged down by a witness, who pointed out the suspect – a man in a nearby tent. Officers arrested the man, who confirmed he lit the fire with a Molotov cocktail.

Police seized a plastic bottle with a wick as evidence.

The suspect, identified as Domingo Lopez Jr., was booked into the Multnomah County Jail.

Lopez was then released.

Hours later, at 3:37 a.m. Monday, officers responded again to assist PF&R after more fires were reported along the interstate.

Six small fires were lit along the west side of I-205. Police said firefighters extinguished three of them while passing community members put out the other three. All were caught early. No one was injured and no structures were burnt.

Officers located Lopez walking along the shoulder and arrested him again. A light was seized as evidence.

PPB said Lopez was transported to a hospital on a Police Officer Hold for a mental health evaluation.

He now faces seven counts of reckless burning and one count of second-degree disorderly conduct for all of the fires.

PPB said after the Sunday fire that arson investigators were doing follow-up to determine if other charges are warranted.

If They Will Loot Homes During These Wildfires, What Will They Do To You And Your Family When They Have No More Food?

September 13, 2020 by Michael Snyder

When disaster strikes, the first instinct that some people have is to go out and loot homes that have been evacuated. I wish that this wasn’t the case, but it seems to happen every time that we see a huge natural disaster. You have to be quite sick to want to take advantage of people that have left their homes during a great tragedy, but we have seen it happen over and over the last several years. Twisted individuals that have had their consciences completely seared think that undefended homes are an easy target, and a lot of times they get away with it. Fortunately, authorities were able to catch two degenerates that were just looting evacuated homes in Oregon, but only after they led the police on a high speed chase…

Two men have been charged by Oregon authorities with looting properties that were evacuated by owners fleeing the deadly wildfires that have so far forced half-a-million people from their homes, killed at least 31 people in three states, and left dozens more missing.

Anthony Travis Bodda, 21, and Alexander Justin Jones, 36, were arrested on Thursday after they allegedly led law enforcement officials on a high-speed chase in fire-ravaged Santiam Canyon, Oregon, authorities said.

After their vehicle was disabled, the two looters took off on foot, but officers were quickly able to hunt them down…

The two men then got out of the van and made a run for it, according to sheriff’s deputies.

One of the men was immediately arrested on the golf course while the other was seen going into a goat shed near the area.

A K9 unit managed to locate the other suspect, who was also taken into custody.

Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to looting in this country. Earlier this year, literally thousands of young people went on an unprecedented looting spree all over the U.S. during the civil unrest that erupted in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd. Authorities are still making arrests as they continue to identify more of the suspects that were involved in looting stores, and hopefully as many looters will be brought to justice as possible.

But the looting will never stop. In fact, it will only get worse as our society continues to decay.

And if desperate individuals will stoop to such lows now, what will they be willing to do to you and your family once things get really, really bad and all of their food is gone?

Today, we have more reason to literally be frightened of the behavior of our fellow Americans than we ever have before. By now, I am sure that you have already heard of the shocking ambush that we just witnessed in the Los Angeles area. When protesters heard where the police officers that had been shot were taken, they decided to block the entrance to the hospital…

Protesters have blocked the entrance to the hospital where the two Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies ambushed in a shooting Saturday are fighting for their lives, chanting: ‘We hope they ******* die.’

The officers, one the 31-year-old mother of a six-year-old boy, were shot at the Metro Blue Line station at Willowbrook Avenue and Oak Street in Compton by a male suspect who then fled the scene.

I don’t know if I have words that are strong enough to describe how detestable this was.

Hospitals should be completely off limits for protests, and by blocking the entrance they were keeping people that needed emergency care from getting in.

There is no reasoning with people like that. In the past, many Americans have attempted to avoid a lot of the craziness that goes on by living in low crime areas, but at this point social decay is spreading like a cancer all over the nation. Just a few days ago, we learned that the feds have successfully shut down a “meth superhighway” that involved hundreds and hundreds of people in major cities such as “Atlanta, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Phoenix, San Diego, and St. Louis”…

U.S. Attorney William Barr and Drug Enforcement Administration Acting Administrator Timothy Shea announced Thursday, at a press conference in Phoenix, a large meth bust across the U.S., seizing thousands of pounds of methamphetamine, tens of millions of dollars, and hundreds of firearms.

The operation was a six-month-long effort to bring down a ‘meth superhighway’ that was controlled by Mexican cartels and stretched across the U.S.

The operation included 750 investigations across ‘meth hubs’ in Atlanta, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Phoenix, San Diego, and St. Louis, resulting in 1,840 arrests, the seizure of 28,560 pounds of methamphetamine, 284 firearms and $43.3 million in drug profits.

Some try to get away from all the crime by living in the middle of nowhere, but unfortunately the truth is that meth and other illegal drugs have made it to almost every small community in America at this point.

I don’t want to end this article on a bad note, and so let me share an example that demonstrates that there are still good people out there too.

A little more than a week ago, over 200 campers were trapped by wildfires near Shaver Lake in California, and National Guard helicopters were sent in to rescue them…

More than 200 campers were trapped near a boat dock on Shaver Lake in California’s Fresno County over the Labor Day weekend, encircled by flames and a blinding wall of wildfire smoke.

Chief Warrant Officer 5 Joseph Rosamond, piloting a California Army National Guard CH-47 Chinook, had already made the decision to try to put his helicopter down close by the desperate campers on Sept. 5.

Emergency personnel on the ground told Rosamond that the smoke made it too risky to conduct a close landing, but Rosamond knew that if he didn’t take a risk that those people would be in severe danger. The fires were closing in and time was running out, and so he made a conscious decision to be a hero…

“I was listening to the radio calls when the Chinook approached restricted airspace” near the lake, said Army Maj. Gen. David S. Baldwin, adjutant general of the California National Guard.

Chief Rosamond told them, ‘Just tell us where the people are. We’re going to go get them,'” Baldwin said in a video conference call Monday with the aircrews and defense reporters.

There wasn’t enough room on the helicopters to take all of the campers out in one trip, and so the helicopters actually had to go back to the lake two more times to get everyone.

In the end, they didn’t finish the mission until 1:30 in the morning. 12 of the campers ended up in the hospital, but ultimately all 214 of them were saved.

Why can’t we have more heroes like Joseph Rosamond?

Sadly, the decisions that our society has made over the past several decades are really catching up with us, and at this point the criminals, looters and sickos greatly outnumber heroes such as Joseph Rosamond.

Everywhere around us social decay is rapidly getting worse, and millions of hearts are growing very, very cold.

Trump Boasts 'Favored Nation' Order to Lower Drug Prices

By Eric Mack | Sunday, 13 September 2020 03:34 PM

President Donald Trump announced Sunday he had signed an executive order aimed at lowering drug prices in the United States by linking them to those of other nations.

Trump tweeted Sunday:

"Just signed a new Executive Order to LOWER DRUG PRICES! My Most Favored Nation order will ensure that our Country gets the same low price Big Pharma gives to other countries. The days of global freeriding at America's expense are over..."

Adding:

"...and prices are coming down FAST! Also just ended all rebates to middlemen, further reducing prices."

Trump has made it a campaign slogan he is bad for big pharma, rejecting big-dollar ad campaigns from the wealthy companies amid his efforts to lower drug prices to Americans. The "favored nation" order forces drug companies to give Americans the best price for prescription drugs.

The White House on Sunday provided a text of the executive order, which does not appear to be a newly signed document. It was dated July 24.

The Republican president in July signed an executive order that, among other things, would require Medicare, the government healthcare program for seniors, to tie the prices it pays for drugs to those paid by other countries. Its implementation, however, was delayed as the administration sought to work out a solution with the industry.

Three other executive orders were signed in July, which were designed to reduce drug costs for consumers in a bid to highlight his commitment to cutting prescription prices before the Nov. 3 presidential election.

The orders ranged from relaxing drug importation rules to cutting Medicare payments to drugmakers, but experts said they were unlikely to take effect in the near term. Similar proposals by the Trump administration stalled amid industry pushback. Reuters contributed to this report.

'Y'all gonna die one by one': BLM activists storm hospital where ambushed officers taken, block exits

'I hope they f***ing die!'

Chris Enloe

After two Los Angeles Sheriff's deputies sustained multiple gunshot wounds upon being ambushed while sitting in their patrol vehicle on Saturday, alleged Black Lives Matters protesters stormed the hospital where the officers were transported to for emergency surgery.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, protesters attempted to block the entrance and exit of the hospital. Protesters also shouted that they hoped the injured officers died.

"To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling 'We hope they die' referring to 2 LA Sheriff's ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People's lives are at stake when ambulances can't get through," the agency said.

Video taken from outside the hospital showed one protester tell law enforcement officers standing guard outside the hospital, "I hope they f***ing die," referring to the injured officers.

(Content Warning: The following videos contains strong language):

Other video taken from outside the hospital showed the alleged BLM activists berate the officers who guarded the hospital's perimeter.

The activists told the officers, "you're next" and "y'all gonna die one by one."

"Y'all ain't s***. F*** that b***h," one activist is heard saying.

(Content Warning: The following video contains strong language):

One witness told KABC-TV that he heard the protesters say "death to the police" and "kill the police."

That same witness also told the news outlet that he saw the protesters attempt to breach the hospital.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office said police arrested two individuals, including one member of the press.

After deputies issued a dispersal order for the unlawful assembly of a group of protesters blocking the hospital emergency entrance & exits, a male adult protester refused to comply & cooperate. During his arrest, a struggle ensued at which time a female adult ran towards the deputies, ignored repeated commands to stay back as they struggled with the male and interfered with the arrest. The female adult, who was later identified as a member of the press, did not identify herself as press and later admitted she did not have proper press credentials on her person. Both individuals have been arrested for 148 P.C.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat, responded by condemning the protesters.

"There's no place in civilized society for anybody to draw an arm and to shoot our law enforcement officers that put their lives on the line
