Today would have been the 65th birthday of Michael Jackson.
So I published Meetings and Stories, Chapter 6, The Genesis Of Beat It.

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope.
In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort.
In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream.
And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”

Meetings and Stories, Chapter 6

The Genesis Of Beat It
It was about 5 a.m. on Sunday, November 29, 1981, and I was standing near the back of the first-floor bar at the famous Manhattan after-hours club, AM-PM. Interestingly, I was at the same spot where, a few months earlier, I met and talked with John Belushi. I was standing by myself having a drink when someone walking into the club caught my eye. As he walked toward me, I perceived a radiant whitish aura around this young man. Intrigued, I stepped back a few steps to intercept his path. When he was directly in front of me, I said to him there’s something special about you. Who are you? He momentarily stopped, and we looked at each other face to face. But he didn’t say a word. As he walked away, it was only then that I noticed the entourage with him.
I stepped back to the bar but soon became increasingly irritated at his lack of an answer. I’ve never intentionally met anyone and given such a compliment like that before. After I had thought about it for a couple of minutes, I decided to locate this person and find out his name.
So, I went up to the exclusive third floor and asked the bartender I called Balance, did you see the entourage come in here? He said yes and pointed over to the private VIP room. I walked over to this special glass enclosed area, and as I slowly opened the door, directly to my left was the aura man. Just as I was about to give him a piece of my mind, he totally disarmed me by politely asking me to sit next to him. I did. (I called the bartender Balance, because he was extraordinarily gifted with his juggling of bottles. He did this seven years before the film Cocktail with Tom Cruise made it famous.)

“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground. One of the most profound preferences in human nature is for satisfying one’s needs and desires with the least possible exertion; for appropriating wealth produced by the labor of others, rather than producing it by one’s own labor…the stronger and more centralized the government, the safer would be the guarantee of such monopolies; in other words, the stronger the government, the weaker the producer, the less consideration need be given him and the more might be taken away from him.”

Petrodollar Be Warned: Three Persian Gulf Energy Powers Just Joined BRICS
The BRICS revealed its geopolitical priorities when it added three Persian Gulf states to its once exclusive roster of members. Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE have been strategically included to put an end to the petrodollar.
The leitmotif of the BRICS Summit meeting in Johannesburg on 22-24 August has been, expectedly, the expansion of the group to include six more member states. While this itself is a stand-alone event, in reality, it dovetails nicely into the group’s core agenda of global multipolarity and the creation of a fairer international trade and finance architecture that is crucial to economic growth. The Johannesburg II Declaration adopted at the end of the summit modestly mentions toward the very end of the document that the addition of six more members stemmed out of a “consensus on the guiding principles, standards, criteria and procedures of the BRICS expansion process.” However, the list of six countries – Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE – also gives away some other important clues. For starters, this BRICS consensus is anchored in a profound Russian-Chinese understanding. Also, the BRICS is declaring itself to be a non-western grouping. There is no question that BRICS ascribes the highest importance to Africa and the Persian Gulf region, with Egypt and Ethiopia, the two ancient civilization-states, as the “lynchpin.”

Archbishop Viganò: Spadaro’s Blasphemous Article A Manifestation Of The ‘Counter-Church’ And Its False Dogmas
Spadaro’s article is not a simple provocation – something already unheard of in itself – but the manifestation, the epiphany, as some ‘theologian’ of Santa Marta would call it, of a counter-church with its false dogmas, mendacious precepts, deceitful preaching, its corrupted and corrupting ministers.
LifeSiteNews) – Spadaro’s words are like a puddle of sewage containing the scum of the worst Modernism that has been plaguing the Church for more than a century. It is the Modernism that was never definitively eradicated from seminaries and self-styled Catholic universities, to which a sect of heretics and those who are misguided has erected the totem of the Second Vatican Council in place of two thousand years of Tradition. Until some time ago this “synthesis of all heresies” tried to make itself presentable by failing to manifest its antichristic nature, which was nonetheless consubstantial with it: there was still the risk that some vaguely conservative Prelate not yet fully committed to the cause would realize its intrinsic danger.

We’re All Suspects In A DNA Lineup, Waiting To Be Matched With A Crime
“Make no mistake about it…your DNA can be taken and entered into a national DNA database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason… I doubt that the proud men who wrote the charter of our liberties would have been so eager to open their mouths for royal inspection.”-Justice Antonin Scalia dissenting in Maryland v. King. Be warned: the DNA detectives are on the prowl. Whatever skeletons may be lurking on your family tree or in your closet, whatever crimes you may have committed, whatever associations you may have with those on the government’s most wanted lists: the police state is determined to ferret them out. In an age of overcriminalization, round-the-clock surveillance, and a police state eager to flex its muscles in a show of power, we are all guilty of some transgression or other. No longer can we consider ourselves innocent until proven guilty. Now we are all suspects in a DNA lineup waiting to be matched up with a crime.

West Wanted To Create ‘Second Ukraine’ Out Of Belarus – Russian Security Council
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The West wanted to create a “second Ukraine” out of Belarus even before Russia’s special military operation, Deputy Secretary of the Russian Security Council Alexey Shevtsov stated. “Western countries, even before the special military operation, increased military, political and economic pressure on Minsk, openly sponsored Belarusian ‘zmagars’ [supporters of opposition], trained militants. In fact, they wanted to create a second Ukraine out of the country, another ‘anti-Russia,” Shevtsov told a Russian newspaper in an interview. The official added that the Western sanctions had a “reverse impact” and strengthened ties between Moscow and Minsk even more. Therefore, the deployment of Russia’s tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus is a response to aggressive actions of the West near the borders of the Union State of Russia and Belarus, the deputy secretary emphasized.

US Navy Commander Says China Must Be ‘Challenged’ In The South China Sea
The commander of the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet says the US must respond to China’s ‘aggressive’ behavior
The commander of the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet said Sunday that the US must “challenge” China’s “aggressive behavior” in the South China Sea, an area that has become a potential flashpoint for a conflict between Washington and Beijing. The comments from Vice Adm. Karl Thomas came after incidents between Chinese and Philippine vessels near a disputed reef known as Second Thomas Shoal. One incident on August 5 involved Chinese boats firing a water cannon on Philippine vessels that were trying to resupply a grounded ship on the reef that Manila uses as a base of operations. Thomas assured that the US would back the Philippines in the face of “shared challenges” and that Seventh Fleet forces, which are based in Japan, are “out here for a reason.”

Is BlackRock Rebranding ESG As Climate-Related Risks?
Earlier this month, American rating agency Standard & Poor Global (“S&P Global”) announced it had dropped its use of environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) scores in assessing corporate borrowers, an initiative launched in 2021. S&P said the ESG ratings had not been accepted by its customers. Critics have dubbed the practice as “woke capitalism.” Unfortunately, the move to drop ESG scores may not be the victory for freedom as some may hope. A 2017 study published in Business and Politics which comprehensively mapped the ownership in the US of the “Big Three” – BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street – found that together they constituted the largest shareholder in 88 per cent of the S&P 500 firms. “Through an analysis of proxy vote records, we find that the Big Three do utilise coordinated voting strategies and hence follow a centralised corporate governance strategy,” the researchers said.

What Am I Doing On This Substack Now?
What about the virus/vaccine movie? What moves people?
Part One: Selling snow to Eskimos. Once I provided the necessary evidence to conclude viruses don’t exist; and after launching many rational attacks against all vaccines; I began writing about MINDSET. Meaning: people refusing to look at the evidence and settling on official medical lies as their standard. So here is yet another slant on MINDSET. Imagine you have a business that sells a health product. You claim it prevents disease. You can make the claim because the full force of something called THE GOVERNMENT is behind you. You tell a healthy prospective customer (known as a MARK by con artists), “If you take the product, you won’t get sick.” He takes the product and doesn’t get sick. There is no way under the sun to prove he doesn’t get sick because he took your product. But you can say: “See, our product worked.”

Louisiana Man Arrested By SWAT Team For Facebook Joke About COVID-19 Wins Case
A win for free speech.
In a pivotal defense of free speech and online expression, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals has rendered a verdict upholding Waylon Bailey’s right to jest about COVID-19 and zombies on social media. The Louisiana resident, previously arrested under the cloud of an anti-terrorism law for his humorous Facebook post, now sees the tide of justice turn in his favor. Waylon Bailey’s playful jab at the pandemic combined with a cinematic reference to the Brad Pitt-led movie “World War Z,” whimsically warning that the local sheriff’s office was tasked with shooting the “infected.” Instead of discerning the evident satire, the local sheriff’s deputies responded with a disproportionate use of force. Without obtaining a warrant, the authorities dispatched a SWAT team to Bailey’s residence, arresting him with guns drawn in his own garage.

Republicans In Nine Florida Counties Adopt Resolution Calling For Ban Of COVID Vaccines
A movement is gaining momentum to pressure Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, county sheriffs, and the Florida Legislature to ban COVID-19 vaccines and all other mRNA vaccines in the state.
Walt Disney World employees protest against the company’s vaccine policies in Orlando, Fla., on Oct. 2, 2022. (Courtesy of Nick Caturano) Republican executive committees in nine Florida counties-the local arms of the Republican Party of Florida-have adopted a resolution asking Mr. DeSantis and lawmakers to prohibit the sale and distribution of the vaccines in Florida. The 83-page resolution also asks state Attorney General Ashley Moody to immediately seize all remaining vaccine supplies and conduct a forensic analysis of them. The so-called “Ban the Jab” resolution adopted by the local Republican executive committees was written by psychotherapist Joseph Sansone.

Liberal Dies On Toilet While Awaiting CDC Guidance On How To Wipe
SEATTLE, WA — Liberal man Jonathan Seymour passed away, dying on the toilet as he awaited instructions from the Center for Disease Control on how to wipe his own butt. “I kept telling him to just go for it,” said housemate Ronald Mills. “Jonathan just wouldn’t take the risk.” Officials say Mr. Seymour became severely dehydrated as he refused to move from the toilet for either food or water. “What am I supposed to do??” cried Mr. Seymour, desperate for guidance. “I can’t do this alone! Front to back? Back to front? Folded or unfolded? How many squares? Speak to me, Fauci!”

Empire Of Elastic Waistbands (Text and Video)
Searching for style and substance in the first empire with an audio-visual recorded history of its own collapse.
If by the second paragraph, you sense another black-pilled doomer diatribe manifesting and would prefer your mind be massaged by uplifting and optimistic slants, remember that no effective solution to any social or personal dis-ease was ever discovered by ignoring reality in service of feelings. On the downward decline of a civilization’s culture, a longing for the past, often viewed through a nostalgic lens can be what Don Draper refers to in one of the most culturally important television episodes to ever air, “Delicate, but potent.” With a cursory glance at the present, Americans are actively and more frequently looking to the past for answers. Nothing provides a more measurable perspective for which to comprehend the overwhelming dis-ease conferred by the current decrepit state of, well, everything.

Vivek Caves On Plan To Cut Aid To Israel: ‘We Would Never Cut Off Aid To Israel Until Israel Told Us They Were Ready’
GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy ran away from his proposal to cut aid to Israel by 2028 on Saturday, instead promising that he would provide endless US aid to Israel “until Israel told us they were ready for it” to be cut off. By the end of my first term, the US-Israel relationship will be deeper and stronger than ever because it won’t be a client relationship, it will be a true friendship. The centerpiece of my Middle East policy in Year 1 will be to lead “Abraham Accords 2.0” which will fully… — Vivek Ramaswamy (@VivekGRamaswamy) August 27, 2023. “To be clear, we would never cut off aid to Israel unless Israel told us they were ready for it,” Ramaswamy told an Israeli news outlet in an interview he shared to his own Twitter page. “The US-Israel relationship will be stronger by the end of my first term than it has ever been in US history and than it ever will be under any of those other administrations if anybody else is elected,” he said.

New Israeli Blitz On Syria Puts Aleppo Airport Out Of Commission
Israeli jets targeted the vital air field for the fifth time this year
Israel launched a new attack on Aleppo International Airport in northern Syria in the early hours of 28 August, causing damage to the runway and disabling the airport. “At about 4:30 a.m. today, the Israeli enemy carried out an air aggression from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea, west of Latakia, targeting Aleppo International Airport,” a military source confirmed to SANA. No casualties were reported. Monday’s aggression marked the fifth time in under a year that Israeli strikes put Aleppo airport out of service, with a similar attack taking place in May 2023, two in March just days after a devastating earthquake hit the region, and one in September 2022. Israeli airstrikes have also hit Damascus International Airport at least four times this year. The UN has condemned Israel’s attacks in Syria, saying these “must never be directed against civilians or civilian objects.”

Vaccinated People Are Over 2X More Likely To Get Covid Than The Unvaccinated. Whoops!
We are told to get vaccinated to reduce the risk of being infected. But the numbers aren’t working out for them. How can they explain this survey?
According to the survey I just did of over 16,000 people, fully vaccinated people are more than 2X as likely to get COVID than the unvaccinated. What I found was fascinating is that if you did get COVID, the probability of being hospitalized was identical in the two groups. My survey results are publicly viewable and all the entries can be verified (I have the contact info for each respondent). Happy to provide to any mainstream media fact checker. Bottom line: The CDC lied, people died. If you disagree, please post your row-level data survey results.

Cyberattack On This Journal… Proving Truth Is The First Casualty Of War
Truth may be an early casualty of war. But that casualty can be repaired with more supportive truth and time.
The Strategic Culture Foundation’s online journal was this week hit by a massive cyberattack. The assault resulted in the forum being shut down on its regular internet site. Readers who normally access the journal were informed that the site was no longer available. The online journal has safely migrated to and, in addition, we continue to post articles via SCF’s Telegram channel in order to exercise our inalienable right to freedom of speech. The SCF online journal has been up to now accessed via the “.org” domain. The domain is operated by an organization called Public Interest Registry (PIC) based in the United States. PIC proclaims to be a “trusted” non-profit company “dedicated to the integrity of the internet” and free speech. The outrageous action to obliterate SCF is a sign of the sinister times. There can be little doubt that the sabotage was carried out by state agencies: those of the United States and its NATO allies. This should not be seen as some kind of petty hacking by cyber vandals, but rather as cyber-warfare at the state level.

Beauty’s Dark Side: The Toxic Truth About Cosmetics
The Health Impacts of Cosmetic Choices
In the quest for beauty and youth, billions of individuals worldwide turn to cosmetics, placing their trust in brands and products that promise radiant skin, lustrous hair, and a flawless appearance. The lust for beauty products is fuelled by glamorous advertising campaigns and societal norms that often equate beauty with success and confidence. Yet, lurking beneath the surface of these enticing bottles and compacts lies a darker truth, one that many are unaware of. You history teacher may have smugly told you how silly folk in the old days were. How did these people not realise that smothering their faces with ground-up white lead wasn’t the best thing for their health? But things never change. Recent revelations and studies have uncovered a myriad of harmful chemicals and toxins present in everyday cosmetics, raising alarms about the safety of these products. High-profile lawsuits and concerning health reports linking cosmetics to severe conditions like cancer means the beauty industry is now under more scrutiny. But as consumers it’s crucial to be informed, to question, and to understand what we’re applying to our bodies.

The Establishment Wants To Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – For The Sake Of Democracy
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly “extreme,” and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be “banned.” In mid-June, Alternative for Germany (AfD) surpassed the Social Democratic Party (SPD) to become Germany’s second-largest party in terms of public opinion. By August, they had garnered a substantial 21 percent of voter support, three percentage points ahead of the SPD and five percentage points behind the Christian Democratic Union (CDU). Some individual opinion polls even showed AfD with as much as 23 percent support.

Transgender Surgeries More Than Double 2016 To 2020
Not Just Men Getting Breast Implants, Disfiguring Genital Surgeries Rise Sharply
The enormous push in academic medicine to enable gender change fantasies exploded since 2016 when the Affordable Care Act mandated that such operations be covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial insurances. Wright and colleagues reported from national sources of data that all forms of transgender surgeries have risen sharply since 2016. Overall, 25 099 patients (52.3%) were aged 19 to 30 years, 10 476 (21.8%) were aged 31 to 40, and 3678 (7.7%) were aged 12 to 18 years. The highlighted procedures in the table are particularly disfiguring and have very high complication and reoperation rates.

German Family Firm Survived WWI, WWII, And Hyperinflation But Wrecked By The Scholz Green Regime
The current crop of European Union government policies are ‘more problematic’ than previous crises: The family firm is 500 years old, but can it survive Germany’s current government? The head of Germany’s oldest family firm, Coatinc, a metal finishing company over 500 years old, has placed the blame for Germany’s current economic crisis on the country’s left-wing government, with a special emphasis on its disastrous energy policy. ‘War? Hyperinflation? What we experience now I see as much more problematic,’ Paul Niederstein said in an interview with Die Welt. Niederstein, whose company has been in the family since 1502, says that while 17 generations of his family firm had weathered a multitude of crises over the past 500 years, the current one, unlike many previous ones, is of the country’s own making. He said he primarily blames politics: ‘This is a self-made German crisis, starting with a completely wrong energy policy,’ Niderstein told Die Welt.

UK Slammed For Opposing Icj Ruling On Israel Occupation Of Palestine
The UK has come under scrutiny for reportedly attempting to hinder the International Court of Justice (ICJ) from issuing a legal opinion on Israel’s occupation of Palestine. The UK’s alleged move came to light through a 43-page legal opinion submitted to the ICJ, which is currently in the fact-finding stage before an expected advisory opinion from the Court on the legal consequences of the “occupation, settlement and annexation” of Palestinian land. The UK’s objection submitted in the “amicus brief” has been met with dismay as it not only seeks to derail the work of the ICJ, it also goes against the grain of other member states and non-governmental organisations by opposing the hearing of the case entirely. Critics argue that the UK’s stance ignores the entrenched nature of Israel’s occupation and the deteriorating situation on the ground. Palestinian diplomats and international humanitarian law experts have expressed dismay at the UK’s submission. The ICJ, based in The Hague, is the top United Nations Court for resolving disputes between nations; its decisions are binding, although it lacks enforcement powers.

Abnormalize The Empire
The primary job of both Hollywood and the mainstream western press is to is to put a friendly, normal-looking face on a globe-spanning empire which dominates the world using nonstop violence and coercion. Their job is to continually normalize freakish tyranny. They do this in a whole host of ways, including the agenda-setting practice of under-reporting inconvenient facts while amplifying convenient ones to preserve the status quo upon which the plutocrats who control the media have built their respective kingdoms. Today we also see these agenda-setting manipulations in the form of Silicon Valley algorithm manipulation dictating what information westerners take in. The normalization of the empire also takes the form of the manufacturing of mainstream culture out of New York and Hollywood, which continually depicts an entirely fictional version of life in the United States and an entirely fictional version of the role played by soldiers, police, journalists and politicians. The crushing poverty, the murderous warmongering, the capitalist extraction and corruption which is the real face of the USA gets almost no representation.

Irish Media Minister Supports Government Defining What Is True and What Speech Can Be Permitted Online (Text and Video)
Discussing the implementation of the Digital Services Act (DSA), Ireland’s Media Minister defends the decision that a government appointed entity will ultimately decide what speech is permitted by citizens. This is the next phase in the control of opposition to the expansion of government controls. We are all traveling at the front of one long continuum toward tyranny. Are the people of Ireland so weak and pathetic they cannot make decisions or formulate opinions for themselves? Of course not. This is not what government control of information is about. Government control of information is about CONTROL of the people.

Google Hiding Websites Of Trump And Other Biden Challengers – Report
Searching ‘presidential campaign websites’ returned incumbent Joe Biden’s webpage and several inactive Democrats
Google is suppressing the 2024 campaign websites of all serious challengers to Democratic incumbent President Joe Biden, a report from the Media Research Center claimed on Thursday. Searching the web for ‘presidential campaign websites’ using Google returned results that did not include a single Republican candidate on the first page the day before the first Republican primary debate of the 2024 season, according to the MRC. Not even former US President Donald Trump, who is polling neck-and-neck with Biden, appeared in the first few pages of results, the media watchdog observed. Nor did Democratic challenger Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the chief threat to Biden’s candidacy from within his own party, appear in the results at all, even though a recent poll had him at nearly 20% in a matchup against Biden.

Ukraine Quagmire Will Cost US $600 Billion More Even If Fighting Stopped Tomorrow – Analysis
The US has already committed over $110 billion in military and economic support to Ukraine, with President Joe Biden recently asking Congress for $24 billion in additional cash. Washington’s allies have sent tens of billions of dollars more in aid, with Ukraine quickly becoming the most expensive NATO-instigated security crisis since Afghanistan. The costs of the geopolitical, military, and economic quagmire which the Biden administration unleashed in Ukraine will continue to steadily rise even if peace were to break out tomorrow, and American taxpayers are expected to largely foot the bill. That’s the conclusion of an independent economic analysis put out this week by a senior fellow from the Center for Security Policy and the Yorktown Institute, a pair of Washington, DC and Maryland-based think tanks. The analysis takes into account the World Bank’s March 2023 estimate that Ukraine will require some $411 billion in reconstruction support over the coming decade, plus whatever additional expenses may have arisen between then and now, with the analysis giving an overall ballpark figure of $600 billion+ in total expenses.

With Major Oil Exporters Joining BRICS, Local Currency Settlements Rather Than US Dollar Become More Natural: Analysts
With Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates joining BRICS, the multilateral mechanism now includes major global oil producers and importers. Analysts said that a wider adoption of local currencies for trade among BRICS countries, rather than using the US dollar, seems more natural. Six candidates – Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – will be admitted as BRICS members on January 1, 2024, South African president announced on Thursday at the BRICS summit. Currently, BRICS members include Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. A Shanghai-based oil industry insider told the Global Times on Friday on the condition of anonymity that having oil producers and consumers as members will set a foundation for BRICS members to use local currencies in settlement, which can definitely reduce transaction costs, adding that people are witnessing the twilight of the petrodollar.

Ex-Ukrainian Chief Prosecutor Claims Biden Took Bribes
The US president was lobbied to stop an investigation into the energy company Burisma, where his son Hunter was a top executive, Viktor Shokin has said
Former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin has claimed that Joe Biden, while serving as US vice president, received a bribe from a Ukrainian energy company in exchange for helping to get him fired in 2016. In an interview with Fox News released on Friday, Shokin said that Biden pressured then-Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko to fire him over his investigation into Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company on whose board Hunter Biden, the incumbent US president’s son, served at the time. The ex-prosecutor argued that both Poroshenko and Joe Biden understood that if he had been allowed to continue his probe into Burisma, it could have provided “the facts about the corrupt activities” by Hunter Biden, Devon Archer – the company’s another American executive – and other people involved. However, Poroshenko offered a different version of events, insisting that Shokin was fired because of his failure to fight corruption in Ukraine.

Visualizing The BRICS Expansion In 4 Charts
BRICS is an association of five major countries including Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. Distinguished by their emerging economies, the group has sought to improve diplomatic coordination, reform global financial institutions, and ultimately serve as a counterbalance to Western hegemony. On Aug. 24, 2023, BRICS announced that it would formally accept six new members at the start of 2024: Saudi Arabia, Iran, Ethiopia, Egypt, Argentina, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In this graphic, we provide a data-driven overview of how the BRICS expansion will grow the group’s influence and reach. Because most of the new BRICS members are considered to be developing economies, their addition to the group will not have a major impact on its overall share of GDP. The following table includes GDP projections for 2023, courtesy of the IMF.

Neil Oliver: ‘…They’re Dismantling Our Way Of Life!’ (18:37)

WHO And UN Are Sexualising Little Children Worldwide To Normalise Paedophilia
“Schools must equip children to have sexual partners” – say the UN and WHO” is the title of an article from Stop World Control, which has evidence to suggest that the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations (UN) are sexualising little children in primary education worldwide, for the purpose of normalising pedophilia. The report consists of “nothing but solid evidence, with many official documents” We have republished part of this extensive report below, however, videos, books, archives, etc. All PDF documents may be downloaded from the references section at the end of their original report (source). “Little children are sexual beings who must have sexual partners and begin with sex as soon as possible. For this reason, kindergartens and elementary schools must teach children to develop lust and sexual desire, learn masturbation, build same-sex relationships, use online pornography, and learn different sexual techniques such as oral sex.” The above is a paraphrased summary of the official guidelines issued by the World Health Organization and the United Nations to educational authorities worldwide. Meanwhile, judicial organizations are issuing statements that sex between little children and adults should be legalized, while media outlets and political parties are calling for the acceptance of pedophilia as a “normal sexual orientation”.

Officer Mike Byrd Who Shot And Killed Ashli Babbitt In Cold Blood Inside The US Capitol Is Promoted To Captain
On January 6, 2021, US veteran and Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt was shot in cold blood by Capitol Police Lt. Mike Byrd inside the US Capitol. In July 2021 The Gateway Pundit was first to confirm that Lt. Mike Byrd was Ashli Babbit’s killer. Lt. Byrd killed Ashli Babbitt in cold blood on Jan. 6 inside the US Capitol. Another woman and Trump supporter, Rosanne Boyland, was killed by Capitol Police outside the US Capitol. Her body was then dragged through the US Capitol. Ashli Babbitt was gunned down in cold blood inside the US Capitol. She was 98 pounds and posed no threat and had no weapons. Mike Byrd also had a habit of leaving his loaded gun in US Capitol restrooms. In August 2021, Lt. Mike Byrd was exonerated for killing Ashli Babbitt in cold blood.

Even With The Lowest Distribution In 2023, Covid “Vaccines” Are Still The Deadliest Vaccines Accounting For 70% Of All Vaccine Deaths
The distribution of COVID-19 injections has significantly decreased here in 2023, with the fewest amount of children and adults being injected with these bioweapons since they were introduced in December of 2020. In the two and a half years since the COVID-19 injections were authorized for emergency use by then President Donald Trump, there have been 676,728,782 doses injected into adults and children in the United States, but only 1.4% of those have been injected in Americans so far here in 2023, with a dramatic reduction of those lining up to receive an injection of the bioweapon. And yet in spite of these lower amounts of COVID-19 injections here in 2023, there have still been 9,776,541 doses distributed through May 9, 2023. As of the latest data released by the government-funded VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) at the time of this writing, the COVID shots have accounted for 70% of recorded deaths following vaccinations, and 48% of all the cases of injuries recorded from all vaccines COMBINED currently being administered.

‘Election Variant’: Citizens Push Back Against Mask Mandates
Americans are raising their voices against mask mandates reintroduced by some institutions amid reports of rising COVID-19 cases-with some people calling recent infections an “election variant.” On Aug. 20, Morris Brown College announced in an Instagram post that the institution has reinstated its COVID-19 mask mandate “effective immediately” due to reports of infections among students in the Atlanta University Center. All students and employees are mandated to wear face masks for a 14-day period, with students required to observe physical distancing. Hollywood studio Lionsgate has sent a memo asking employees to wear masks after some of its workers were infected with COVID-19. “Employees must wear a medical grade face covering (surgical mask, KN95 or N95) when indoors except when alone in an office with the door closed, actively eating, actively drinking at their desk or workstation, or if they are the only individual present in a large open workspace,” Sommer McElroy, of Lionsgate, wrote in the memo. Primary care provider Kaiser Permanente is now requiring staff, patients, and visitors at its Santa Rosa facilities to wear face masks. Last week, Upstate Medical’s two hospitals in New York reimposed mandatory masking following reports of an uptick in COVID-19 infections. Many people have begun pushing back against mandates and questioned the timing of the rise in COVID infections—with 2024 elections nearing. “And just like that, the election variant emerges,” author George Papadopoulos said in an Aug. 23 post on X.

ECOWAS Slams ‘Unacceptable’ Niger Transition Plan
The West African bloc ECOWAS rejected the proposal by Niger’s mutinous soldiers for a three-year transition to democratic rule.
Speaking to Al Jazeera earlier this week, the bloc’s commissioner for peace and security said it was ‘unacceptable.’ The door for diplomacy with Niger’s junta remained open but the bloc is not going to engage in drawn-out talks that lead nowhere, Abdel-Fatau Musah, the ECOWAS commissioner for peace and security, told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday. “It is the belief among the ECOWAS heads of state and also the commission that the coup in Niger is one coup too many for the region and if we allow it then we are going to have a domino effect in the region and we are determined to stop it,” Musah said. While direct talks and backchannel negotiations are ongoing, he said the door to diplomacy wasn’t open indefinitely. “We are not going to engage in long, drawn out haggling with these military officers … We went down that route in Mali, in Burkina Faso and elsewhere, and we are getting nowhere,” Musah said. His comments came days after an ECOWAS delegation met the head of Niger’s military regime, Gen. Abdourahmane Tchiani, for the first time since the mutinous soldiers ousted President Mohamed Bazoum in July.

Israel: Ben Gvir Says His Rights Outweigh Those Of Palestinians
Far-right security minister says he and his family have a greater right to move around the West Bank
Israel’s far-right national security minister, Itamar Ben Gvir, said on Wednesday that his rights trumped those of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. Speaking in an interview with Israel’s Channel 12, Ben Gvir was asked about the increasing tensions in the West Bank, which in recent weeks has seen Palestinians and Israeli settlers being killed. Ben Gvir said that his rights were “more important” than those of Palestinians and more needed to be done to ensure the security of Jewish settlers. The national security minister went on to add that the country’s defence minister, Yoav Gallant, was not doing enough to clamp down on Palestinians. “My right, and my wife’s and my children’s right to get around on the roads in Judea and Samaria, is more important than the right to movement for Arabs,” said Ben Gvir, using Jewish nationalist terms for areas of the West Bank.

FBI Official Who Oversaw Memo Targeting Traditional Catholics Testifies Before Congress
The special agent in charge at the Richmond, Virginia, FBI field office testified to House Judiciary Committee, but the contents of his interview have not yet been disclosed.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — An FBI agent who oversaw a highly controversial memo targeting Traditional Catholics for surveillance testified on the subject before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday. Stanley Meador, the special agent in charge at the FBI’s Richmond Field Office in Virginia, spoke with the committee “for several hours in a behind-closed-doors interview,” according to two sources familiar with the matter, The Washington Examiner reported Thursday, although details about the interview have not been publicized. In an April 28 letter to the committee, the FBI noted that Meador was involved in dealing with the “fallout” from the memo, which included “retracting it” and meeting with local Catholic leaders about it, according to one of the Examiner’s sources. In February, FBI whistleblower Kyle Seraphin leaked to the public an eight-page document identifying “Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology” as a magnet for “violent extremists,” alleging that “white nationalists” are increasingly making common cause online with attendees of the Latin Mass.

Yes, Virginia (Dare): The 2020 Election WAS Fraudulent—And GA GOP Leadership (Among Others) Are Complicit. Editor Peter Brimelow writes: When the 2020 election controversy erupted, I decided that would not focus on it.’s Letitia James-drained resources, I thought, should be concentrated on our key issue: Immigration and the survival of the Historic American Nation. The MSM and Big Tech, of course set up an echo-chamber of sloganeering and shadow-banning. But the major Conservative Inc. outlets, to my surprise, did very little. Meanwhile, by eliminating Border enforcement, the Biden Administration has embarked on what must be most sweeping flouting of law by any Administration in U.S. history. And the most consequential. I ask myself: if they can do this to Immigration law, why wouldn’t they have done this to election law? And what about 2024? For anyone not a rabid Democrat, late on election night November 3rd/4th 2020, the strong stench of fraud swirled across America: As Mr. Trump walked out to speak to the media in the early hours of November 4, TV news tickers showed the President with a comfortable lead over Joe Biden in nearly every key battleground state. Pennsylvania, 56-43, a lead of just under 700,000 votes. Georgia, 51-48, a lead of nearly 120,000. Michigan, 53-45, a lead of nearly 295,000. Wisconsin, 51-47, a lead of more than 116,000.

Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi And Colleagues Call For Full Ban On RNA Injections
The “fatal flaw” in these toxic and deadly products that can irrevocably change the DNA
Sucharit Bhakdi, MD, along with Karina Reiss, Ph.D., and Michael Palmer, MD, has asked that we help disseminate their new paper, which follows. They call for a full ban on RNA injections. “The medical world must rise on the spot and bring the use of RNA injections to a full stop,” they declare. Their paper describes RNA vaccines and how they work, and the “fatal flaw” in these toxic and deadly products that can irrevocably change the DNA – the very building blocks of an individual human being. We have also called for a full ban on mRNA and DNA products here (100). Now is the Time for a Ban on all mRNA and DNA Vaccines and Treatments ( We stated: A number of deadly or life-changing adverse events that can arise from the shots, including:

Toxic Contaminants Found In 32% Of Spices Tested
Spices are phenomenal for your health — except when they’re contaminated with heavy metals and exposed to radiation. Find out what to watch out for when choosing spices for your meals
Adding herbs and spices to your meals is a simple way to boost flavor and health benefits. Sprinkling a total of about 1 teaspoon per day of cinnamon, ginger, cumin, turmeric, rosemary, oregano, basil or thyme[i] on your food is even enough to improve the bacterial diversity in your gut after just four weeks.[ii] But along with their beneficial polyphenolic compounds could be a hidden threat — toxic heavy metals like lead, arsenic and cadmium. In a study of 126 spices from popular brands like McCormick, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, nearly one-third contained heavy metals at levels that could harm your health.[iii]

The AirBnB Bubble Popping Will Pop The Housing Bubble
This is how bubbles collapse: the “vital few” 4% sell at whatever the market will bear, pushing prices down, and the 64% awaken to the rapidly narrowing window for locking in bubble capital gains.
Here’s how we can tell if a speculative bubble is a bubble: everyone says it isn’t a bubble–the market has reached a “permanently high plateau” because valuations are now fairly priced, etc. Housing globally is in a bubble (See chart below) which we’re constantly assured isn’t a bubble. As I discussed yesterday ( The Problem Isn’t a Housing Shortage, It’s the Concentration of Ownership by the Wealthy), this bubble is fundamentally an artifact of central bank and government policies that enrich the already-rich, who were incentivized to outbid each other with low-cost credit to snap up “investment properties” with their “surplus capital” that generate more income and capital gains that cash, which until recently was “trash” due to near-zero savings yields.

Syria: Western Intelligence Agencies Recycle 2011 “Revolution” In Southern Syria (Text and Video)
The West has not given up on plans to balkanise Syria
Syrians, despite the hardships they are enduring remain opposed to further sectarian division. Only a small minority backed by Israel and the US, UK and EU, financed by Qatar (reported) are allowing their grievances to be hijacked by the West and are welcoming terrorists into their midst again. Tonight I will be on with Ryan Cristian of The Last American Vagabond to cover in more depth. I will also get something written up in the next few days.

Russia Got Richer Last Year And The Us Lost More Than Any Other Country
Russians got richer last year, even with the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, while the US and Europe lost trillions of dollars, according to Business Insider. According to the Swiss bank UBS, Russia added $600 billion to its wealth. At the same time, the United States lost more wealth last year than any other country – $5.9 trillion, and North America and Europe combined became poorer by $10.9 trillion. By the end of 2022, there were 1 million fewer American millionaires, although the US still accounts for more than 50% of all wealthy people in the world. Meanwhile, Russia’s wealth growth came despite a special operation in Ukraine in February of this year that led to the imposition of Western sanctions against the Kremlin, followed by a contraction of the country’s economy and a drop in stock prices in Moscow.

Upholding Free Speech Amidst The EU’s DSA Law
Today, I want to address a matter of utmost importance – the European Union’s Digital Services Act (DSA) law, its implications, and our stance as a platform committed to protecting free speech. The law goes into effect starting today and Gab will not be complying. Recent developments have brought this law to the forefront, as it seeks to reshape the landscape of social media regulation within the EU. This legislation, while introduced with the intention of curbing content that is already illegal, brings with it certain provisions that infringe upon the very essence of open dialogue and free speech. This is another government censorship scheme like all the rest. If the EU thinks they can get an armored division on the ground and into our offices in Pennsylvania they’re welcome to try. Until that day we’re an American company, with no presence outside of the United States, operat
