How CDC/WHO will fake the effects of the COVID vaccine to make it look like a success

Joel Skousen writes in his 9/25/20 World Affairs Brief:

Jon Rappoport, perhaps the best journalist in the world to inform you about the war against your health through vaccines, had this very insightful report on how they will fake vaccine success when it comes out. The industry has been using these tactics for years, so it is good to get up to speed on recognizing them. You can reverse this list and see exactly how they have manipulated the narrative to claim we are in a pandemic.

Skousen: Justice Amy Barrett will be a disappointment to conservatives — Barnes: “Barrett sided with the government on almost every civil rights case, big employer case, criminal case, the lockdowns, uncompensated takings, excusing 1st & 4th Amendment violations”

Supreme Court Nominee Becomes Election Focus

[…]

Trump has been talked into presenting a woman nominee, which appears politically astute, but it isn’t. It is a trap, and so is the notion of a “conservative” woman justice. Most of the women placed on the appellate level are there because a governor or president is playing politically correct. They will always be mainstream at best, or liberals—never real strict constructionists.

Take Trump’s top probable pick, Justice Amy Barrett of the 7th District Federal Appeals Court. Trump has been told she is a devout Catholic who holds a strong pro-life stance. Of course, the Democrats will, like all nominees, get them to commit during the review process to not try and overturn the Supreme Court conjured right to an abortion. She will call it “settled law” like every other “conservative” justice, implying that she will not try and overturn it. So forget about the hope of killing abortion. It is not going to happen.

But in every other way, Barrett will be a disappointment to conservatives. As Big League Politics wrote,

Barrett’s record is troubling on many issues, with a ruling that gives Democrats in Illinois blanket authority to shut down society based on COVID-19 mass hysteria standing out as particularly heinous. Barrett concurred with the majority in Illinois Republican Party et al. v. J.B. Pritzker, Governor of Illinois to keep the illegal lockdown in place and allow Democrats to rip up the Constitution under the guise of safety. She hid behind the precedent of Jacobsen v. Massachusetts (1905) in an attempt to avoid culpability for her decision.

But Robert Barnes, a lawyer who files cases in the 7TH circuit court of Justice Barrett, wrote this note of extreme caution:

Barrett sided with the government on almost every civil rights case, every big employer case, every criminal case, while also siding with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations. Continue reading “Skousen: Justice Amy Barrett will be a disappointment to conservatives — Barnes: “Barrett sided with the government on almost every civil rights case, big employer case, criminal case, the lockdowns, uncompensated takings, excusing 1st & 4th Amendment violations””

Skousen: Trump’s Interview with Woodward Comes back to Haunt Him

Trump’s Interview with Woodward Comes back to Haunt Him: One of the stupidest things Donald Trump has done is to allow Deep State journalists to interview him. Why is he then outraged when they betray him and make him look bad? But to top even his unwise decision to speak to Bob Woodward was his bragging to him about a new secret nuclear weapons system, which Woodward promptly leaked to the world. “I have built a nuclear — a weapons system that nobody’s ever had in this country before. We have stuff that you haven’t even seen or heard about,” Trump told Woodward, according to the Post. Besides telling every indiscrete thing the president said or thought, Woodward made Trump looking like a laughing stock in his book “Rage.” And it was all gleefully excerpted in the anti-Trump Washington Post. There are too many damaging quotes to list here, but Woodward highlights every questionable answer the president gave.

CHINA’S SUPERPOWER STATUS
I have long told my subscribers after years of complaining about the Pentagon downplaying the Chinese threat: “When the Pentagon starts to warn about China being a real threat, you will know it is too late to stop it, or do anything about it.” Sadly, that time has come.

In the latest annual Pentagon report on China, they now admit that China has reached superpower status and is a global threat. All these years they have been downplaying the threat posed by China even as it built a ring of military bases in the South China Sea as a means of both defense and projecting power outward in a war—just as Japan did prior to WWII.

WHO DOCTOR: ASYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE DON’T SPREAD COVID 19

Mike Adams, ever prone to hype, declared: “The WHO just obliterated every argument for mandatory vaccines or contact tracing by declaring asymptomatic carriers don’t spread it.”

Actually, the W.H.O. as an organization didn’t announce this, and Dr. “Sky is falling” Fauci, countered by saying it isn’t true. What really happened is that Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the Dutch head of WHO’s emerging diseases unit at the agency’s headquarters in Geneva said,

“From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual… It’s very rare.

This evidence is devastating to the entire argument driving the shutdown, and Kerkhove clearly got flack over it. She tried to “walk back” her statement, clearly under pressure over the big revelation that it was, saying “we really don’t know,” but she still couldn’t deny that their studies showed the transmission to be very rare.

The statement is correct and should stand to challenge the entire Covid 19 hyped up response—the lockdowns, social distancing, masks, contact tracing etc. None of these are necessary, especially since up to 80% of those who test positive are asymptomatic according to the Swiss Research Institute. I think they are asymptomatic because either they have such a small trace of the virus, or they don’t have the virus at all. The test picks up most types of coronaviruses, of which there are many, including the common cold. As Mike Adams correctly points out,

It was also the underlying justification for demanding mandatory vaccinations and contact tracing. After all, if the spread of coronavirus were limited to only those who obviously showed symptoms — and could therefore be easily identified and avoided — there would be no logical need for lockdowns, social distancing, masks, contact tracing or mandatory vaccines, since spreaders of the pandemic could be easily identified and avoided (or isolated with selective stay-at-home orders only for the symptomatic).

All at once, the WHO has just exploded all these narratives that were so aggressively pushed by the CDC, Democrat governors, Dr. Fauci at the White House and even the WHO itself. Now, based on the WHO’s new admission, not only should every lockdown be immediately ended; any government effort to initiate new lockdowns should be vehemently rejected as being utterly groundless and anti-science. Mandatory vaccines are no longer needed when asymptomatic carriers present near-zero risk.

But that is not going to happen. Medical authorities keep pushing social distancing because they unknowingly are basing all the contagion on a flawed test—which can continue to drive the pandemic narrative for as long as they want. Sure, there will be a spike in the fall, just like any virus, but it won’t necessarily be Covid 19—just more tests that pick up other corona viruses and colds.

“Either way, my mask wearing days are over,” says Mike Adams

But not for others who believe all the hype. A former fellow Marine pilot friend of mine went in to see his doctor on an issue, and the doctor was wearing a mask, following all the establishment restrictions. The doctor offered him a mask, but my friend reminded him that he was a certified public health and OSHA inspector and that both of them knew that these masks don’t stop viral transmissions via breathing. The doctor nodded approval and promptly removed his mask.

Mike Adams initially thought this virus was a deadly serious threat and hyped it to the moon, including thinking that China would take advantage of this and attack the US. But now he admits,

Now, it turns out none of that was necessary. This entire pandemic appears to be conquerable with nothing more than vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc. Not even hand washing is necessary, according to the new CDC results, and the very idea of waiting around under house arrest for a new experimental vaccine to be produced now seems insanely stupid.

THE ONGOING CORONAVIRUS THREAT

There are a flood of stories floating around the net blaming the coronavirus on the US, but I am not buying it. Most of the sites reporting this are left-wing, and pro-Russia and China, but as the free China website, EpochTimes.com points out, all these sites lead back to one original Chinese study which obviously has every motive for shifting blame to the US.

Another false piece of evidence is that some of the American deaths are people who never traveled to China. But, as in the first cases in Germany, they worked at places where people had traveled to China and brought back the disease. As the disease spreads, it has already escaped the pool of people who contracted it in China.

Critics also point out that the death rates are higher in Iran, a constant target of US dirty tricks, than anywhere else. Even some in the Iranian leadership are blaming the US for the outbreak. That doesn’t make it so. The Iranians who brought the virus to Iran had traveled to China. There is no denying that China’s Wuhan Bio4 lab was and still is busy cooking up deadly viruses with which to attack the West.

FIRE CIDER by Andrew Skousen [Joel’s son]

Legend has it that during the black plague a group of grave robbers could steal from plague victims despite exposure to the disease thanks to a powerful combination of vinegar and herbs that protected them. Although the story is far from confirmed the historians who wrote the story also recorded the alleged recipe of what has become known as the “Vinegar of the Four Thieves.” Variations of the formula have been passed down through the ages and inspired herbalists to recreate the recipe, often with their own variations. Rosemary Gladstone, a famous herbalist, created a similar herb-infused vinegar for immunity and called it “Fire Cider” because of the spicy ingredients. It has become popular because of its usefulness both as an everyday tonic for overall well-being, and for its immune boosting effect during cold and flu season. As the coronavirus outbreak continues to grow and spread, it pays to find ways to strengthen your immune system. Try making this simple herbal preparation at home for your current health and learn how to protect yourself better when a viral outbreak occurs near you.

Skousen: Assange Extradition Hearings Expose Deep State Control — Not a criminal at all, treated like a terrorist!

ASSANGE EXTRADITION HEARINGS EXPOSE DEEP STATE CONTROL IN UK

Few people have the stamina and patience to sit through days of a trial, but the extradition hearings going on now before a hand-picked UK court are important because they demonstrate what a lackey the UK courts are to the Deep State—not the US Deep State, necessarily, but the larger global Deep State that has infested the entire Western world. Few understand that the Deep State conspiracy of power is really an integral part of the larger globalist conspiracy, which controls not only our country but the UK and most of Western Europe. It is not just the total disregard for the Assange defense team’s able defense, but the continued harassment of Assange, even as he is treated like a caged animal in handcuffs while transported from prison to the courts. He isn’t even allowed to sit with his attorneys or have a privileged conversation with them without government officials eavesdropping. This treatment is unprecedented even for violent criminals and Assange isn’t a criminal at all. All the world now knows this after the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture documented how Swedish police manufactured the original rape charge (which has since been withdrawn) out of thin air. He isn’t even a white collar (financial) criminal, but a political prisoner for having exposed US Deep State illicit secrets via Wikileaks—making him an “enemy of the state.”

The ongoing treatment of Assange is literally unheard of in British courts, unless you go back to the 15th century. The UK Deep State, taking all its cues from the US, is trying Assange as if he were a terrorist, using all the anti-constitutional terror statutes. As one British blog writes, Continue reading “Skousen: Assange Extradition Hearings Expose Deep State Control — Not a criminal at all, treated like a terrorist!”

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

China is claiming the CovID-19 epidemic has peaked and new cases are declining, but only the mainstream media believes that. The millions of people in and around Wuhan China, who have been under mandatory lock down for over a month, are in panic mode or mourning the losses of people who have died and been hastily cremated. Listen to this video of the screams and howls at night in the various high rise apartments.

Here are also two realistic background videos by a South African reporter who lived for many years in China with a Chinese wife. He documents the politics and lifestyle as well as the health and sanitation problems outside the main cities, which explains why disease is so prevalent there.

Stock Market investors don’t believe we are past the worst as stocks continued the decline that started in earnest this week. The DOW has already lost 4,000 points in four days. Apple stock has been particularly hard hit as most of their phones are made in China.

The Plunge Protection Team is busy injecting huge amounts of money into Wall Street banks in order to stop the plunge, but signs are everywhere that the global supply chain is going to see massive shortages in products as China continues to quarantine millions of Chinese workers.

Skousen: Coronavirus is weaponized but wasn’t ready yet – leaked out early

“The common cold is a coronavirus. It hasn’t been weaponized. One of the top experts has shown in the DNA of this thing, when it’s taken apart that there is a part that has been added, which means it has to be done in a factory in a bio-4 lab, where you can do genetic alterations of the thing to make it easily more spreadable.

I don’t think this was a finished product yet. I just think it got leaked out early when they were working on it in the Wuhan bio-4 lab. I think there is a little Divine providence in this that it got leaked out to give China a very bad name about this. And there are rumors that are trying to blame it on the US infecting China, but I don’t believe that for a minute. That’s misdirection. China has a long history of trying to prepare a biological weapon to be able to depopulate America so they can get more … living space.”

TRUMP PARDONS THE SWAMP

All of Trump’s high profile pardons this week went to swamp creatures, highlighting the principle reason why he has failed to “drain the swamp” as promised in his election bid. The problem is that Trump has no experience with the conservative world and has to rely on his Deep State advisors to present him with names to nominate for high government positions. The latest instance of this is his nomination of Richard Grenell, an openly gay ambassador to Germany and a Deep State operative, to be the acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI). Of course, if Trump really did nominate a true conservative, the controlled media, Democratic Congressmen, and his own bureaucracy fight him tooth and nail and none would ever be confirmed. When the media and Congress go along with nominees who are part of the Deep State, they pass with little or no opposition and Trump ads it to his list of bragging rights for “successes” in his administration, without realizing he is adding dirty water to the swamp of globalist conspiracy into which this nation is slowly sinking.

IRANIANS ADMIT MISTAKEN DOWNING OF AIRLINER

[…]

The downing of the Ukrainian airliner in Iran did provide fodder for renewed protests within that regime against religious rule in Iran. There are millions of Iranians who long for a return of the security government run by the Shah, even though he used ruthless tactics against the opposition. The current government wins elections because the majority of Iranians are poor Muslims who vote the way their clerics tell them to. That is why democracy is always a danger to liberty and thinking people. The largest sectors of any nation are uniformed and relatively non-thinking, easily swayed by a controlled media or leadership. They are always attracted to socialism and rabble rousing leaders, and will always outvote the minority that favors economic and religious freedom.

So it is natural that university students want out from under the heavy hand of the Ayatollahs, but the US Deep State is busy infiltrating protestors and even killing some in order to make things worse for the government. Remember this whenever US talking heads repeat their constant complaint about Russian interference in the US election. The US is the biggest example of a country interfering in other’s internal affairs, by a long shot. The Daily Mail reports the mainstream narrative, which always blames the killings on the Iranian government: Continue reading “Skousen: U.S. the biggest example of a country interfering in other’s internal affairs by a long shot! • Deep State busy infiltrating Iranian protestors and even killing some”

OFFICIALS DESPERATE TO JUSTIFY FALSE INTEL FED TO TRUMP

In the aftermath of the Soleimani assassination strike at the Baghdad airport last week, US officials hit all the mainstream media and television sites in an attempt to shore up the “imminent threat” narrative they used to justify the strike against Iran’s top general. Trump bragged before a rally that he had just killed the #1 terrorist in the world—#1, he kept repeating. What an idiot! And stupid supporters blindly cheered him on. Confusion reigned as it became known that Soleimani had been presented as a target to focus on months ago in a presentation by John Bolton to president Trump, which blew the “sudden threat” claim out the window. So they inflated the threat to claim that Iran not only wanted to “blow up” the huge Deep State embassy in the Green Zone of Baghdad but three other embassies as well—without naming them. Defense Secretary Esper was caught off guard with that claim and said he hadn’t seen any intel to that effect, further throwing the administration’s story into disarray. Then he later came back to reinforce the official story. Anyone watching all this would think the agencies were making things up on the fly. Naturally, they were overjoyed when Iran had to admit they shot down a Ukrainian airliner that was taking off from Tehran. In their criticism, the US government never mentions that we shot down an Iranian airliner in 1988 killing all aboard.

SETTING A TRAP FOR TRUMP ON WAR WITH IRAN

Trump’s approval of the assassination attack on Iran’s top general, Qassem Soleimani, was based on lies and half-truths fed to him by his advisors. They claimed Soleimani was coming to Baghdad to direct more terror against diplomats, when, in fact, Soleimani was there on a diplomatic mission initiated by the US. The US worked with Saudi Arabia to draft a peace plan and then asked Iraq to invite Iran to come to Baghdad for negotiations. Iran sent Soleimani. That is why he came on a commercial airliner, carrying a diplomatic passport and meeting with the PM.

He was tracked and killed along with a top Iraqi general, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, at the airport. This assassination set the Iraqi and Iranian world on fire, as it was intended to do, destroying what little goodwill the US had left in the region, and fomenting rioters who chant “death to America.” Advisors also fed Trump the 52 targets in Iran they were planning on hitting if Iran retaliated, which included “cultural sites” on the list. The advisors had to know that hitting cultural sites was a war crime, but did so on purpose in order to embarrass Trump. Trump stumbled deeper into the trap after he was criticized by the media, by tweeting rude justifications for striking cultural sites, but in the end had to recant and say he would obey international law. But in a sense, Deep State advisors went too far in embarrassing Trump, for when Iran limited its revenge strike—to make sure no Americans were killed, Trump saw a way out and took it, thus evading the trap —for now. But the globalists aren’t through manipulating Trump into war. … Continue reading “Skousen: Setting a Trap for Trump on War with Iran — Soleimani was on a diplomatic mission initiated by the US • ‘Pompous’ Pompeo’s lies • Iran’s missiles’ precision worrisome for US planners”

Skousen: The Anger of Iraqis Against the US – Trump also assassinated Muhandis, Iraqi leader who fought ISIS, as did Soleimani

THE ANGER OF IRAQIS AGAINST THE US

The US Deep State may not need to concoct another false flag attack if anti-US militias in Iraq decide to take revenge for Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who was killed along with Soleimani. Qais al-Khazali, a commander of the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) in Iraq, vowed to exact revenge for the killing of their leader saying,

“The first Iranian response to the assassination of the martyr leader Soleimani took place,” he tweeted. “Now is the time for the initial Iraqi response to the assassination of the martyr leader Muhandis.”

Muhandis was particularly disliked by the Deep State because he documented more than anyone else in Iraq the fact that the US refused to help them eliminate ISIS once it overran the US-trained Iraqi army in Mosul. In fact the Iraqi army ran away like rabbits and left all their heavy armor and guns behind for ISIS to capture. He points out that it was Iran that provided them the weapons and ammunition to defeat ISIS—thus Soleimani was not supporting terror, but fighting against it.

Skousen: EMP Law (signed 12/20/19) – Will the power grid now be protected from EMP weapons or solar flares?

Lisa Murkowski Blocked Effort to Protect US Power Grid — “Within 12 months of an EMP attack or a massive solar flare, between two-thirds to 90 percent of the U.S. population would perish!”

EMP Law: Inside the latest defense authorization bill signed by President Trump on Dec. 20, it mandates that the federal government must protect the nation from the danger of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks whether from nuclear weapons or solar flares.

The law’s language gives legal authority to Mr. Trump’s March 2019 executive order directing the government to harden critical infrastructure against an EMP strike.

But will it actually get protected? I don’t think so. In fact, the grid is composed of mostly private companies and the government has no authority to take over their property or mandate changes. So the government will create a “network of systems to alert the public and provide a warning system to deal with EMP strikes and communicate with the public should electric systems be disrupted.” Federal agencies will have until June to draw up specific plans and procedures for responding to EMP attacks and major geomagnetic disturbances. That is a pipe dream. No government could control the chaos of 325 million people without electricity for months.

TECHNOLOGY TRANSFERS TO CHINA

Transfer of sensitive technology to China was rampant during the Clinton administration, but kept going on via the Commerce Department during the various Bush regimes. Even under Trump, China is still enticing thousands of US-based scientists to give their research over to China for big bucks, The Epoch Time reports:

China has paid more than 7,000 U.S. scientists and other experts over the past decade through its Thousand Talents Plan (TTP) to hand over their research, according to a Senate subcommittee report made public on Nov. 18.

The TTP is only one of about 200 such Chinese “talent recruitment” programs. While being paid by China, these scientists have also received U.S. government funding. U.S. taxpayers have thus spent hundreds of billions to fund research and development that has ended up in China, according to the report.

Persecution of American Ex pats—cut off from banking: I have long warned against moving overseas to escape Big Brother. In this Expat warning, an experienced ex patriot explains how the IRS is forcing banks everywhere to cut off access to American expats who are still citizens:

…[Thanks to the] Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) in 2010, things got even worse for overseas Americans. The law requires foreign banks and other financial institutions with US customers to act as unpaid informants for the IRS. If they fail to do so, US-source income they have in the form of interest, dividends, rents, and similar payments becomes subject to a 30% withholding tax.

Despite FATCA’s flawed premise, the IRS has ratcheted up the pressure on foreign financial institutions (FFIs) to enforce it. Unsurprisingly, most FFIs don’t want anything to do with the law. They’ve closed hundreds of thousands of accounts held by US citizens instead. With their local accounts closed, many overseas Americans increased their reliance on US accounts. But US banks and brokerages have started to close accounts owned by non-resident citizens as well.
