Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief Alejandro Mayorkas announced to Congress Wednesday that DHS has established a “disinformation governance board” to ensure election security and prevent misinformation from being used ahead of the upcoming midterm elections. The board will use the weight of DHS to fight “misinformation” but promises to protect “free speech, privacy, and civil rights.”

The announcement came as Mayorkas was answering questions from lawmakers. Invoking the bogeyman of previous “Russian interference” in the 2020 elections, Representative Jim Langevin (D-R.I.) asked the DHS chief what the department was doing to prevent misinformation from skewing the 2022 midterms. Mayorkas said, “We have just established a disinformation governance board in the Department of Homeland Security to more effectively combat this threat, not only to election security but to our homeland security.” He added that the board will also work to stop the spread of misinformation in “minority communities.”

The board will be under the executive direction of Nina Jankowicz — a “Russian disinformation” expert who served as a Disinformation Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars in Washington, D.C. It is noteworthy that Jankowicz ticks off several of the Left’s important boxes.

She is not only a woman, but she appears to be a woman who hates men. She is the author of How to Be A Woman Online: Surviving Abuse and Harassment, and How to Fight Back. If the title alone is not enough, she recently tweeted this excerpt:

Men “burst violently into your mentions and your life like the Kool-aid man, demanding your attention, hawking opinions that they believe are unarguably, manifestly correct and indispensable.”

She also blindly regurgitated the now-debunked idea that the “laptop from Hell” — with data showing Biden connections to Ukrainian corruption and a “pay for play” scheme featuring then-Vice President Biden — was (say it with me) “Russian Disinformation.”

During the final presidential debate between Trump and Biden, she tweeted:

Back on the “laptop from hell,” apparently- Biden notes 50 former natsec officials and 5 former CIA heads that believe the laptop is a Russian influence op.

Trump says “Russia, Russia, Russia.”

Now that she has been elevated to her new position as “Arbiter of All Truth,” Jankowicz is feeding that tweet through the spin machine on a double-rinse cycle. Immediately after her appointment was announced, she tweeted:

For those who believe this tweet is a key to all my views, it is simply a direct quote from both candidates during the final presidential debate. If you look at my timeline, you will see I was livetweeting that evening.

And while she can point to the fact that she was “live-tweeting” during the debate, that point does nothing to change the fact that the “laptop from Hell” tweet was a tacit endorsement of Biden’s claim. As evidence of that, the next morning — after time to reflect and not while “live-tweeting” — Jankowicz tweeted her analysis of the “election security section of the debate,” writing:

To be fair, in retrospect, what Jankowicz tweeted is true — she just had the roles reversed. And lest there be any confusion on that point, her time spent “live-tweeting” the night before was spent spewing snarky comments about almost anything Trump said and gushing about almost anything Biden said.

Also, her “live-tweeting” excuse falls apart as soon as one realizes that she sent a total of six tweets during the debate, so it is not as if she were transcribing the debate for people who have access to the Internet but for some inexplicable reason, couldn’t watch the debate for themselves.

Jankowicz is also an enemy of free speech, which should go a long way in a job where she will have the authority to silence those with whom she finds fault. On April 25 — while waiting in the wings for the announcement of her appointment as Arbiter of All Truth — she tweeted about “free speech absolutists” making her “shudder,” writing:

And by couching her disdain for free speech in terms of support for women and other “marginalized communities,” Jankowicz muddies the water of logic and reason while ticking off another box beloved by the Left. She is a rabid pro-fill-in-the-blank-of-victimhood, bleeding-heart liberal.

Aside from being a woman who appears to hate men, someone who regurgitates Party Line lies, an enemy of free speech, and a bleeding-heart liberal, Jankowicz also goes wherever the political wind blows her. In September of 2017, she wrote an almost coherent op/ed piece for the New York Times under the headline, “The Only Way to Defend Against Russia’s Information War.”

Before reading on, remind yourself that this topic is her area of “expertise.”

Spewing affirmations of Russian interference in the presidential election (after all, how else to explain the election of Donald Trump?), Jankowicz laments the sad state of people falling for “Russian disinformation,” writing:

On Sept. 14, Molly McKew, a writer and consultant who describes herself as an “information warfare expert,” testified before Congress that these “media outlets” and others “deep within the shadow space” have infected America. In response, Ms. McKew would have us “develop a rapid response capability for irregular information warfare” to “secure our information space.” She also recommended more regulation for social media.


What no one seems to care to discuss is the people who are targets of Russian disinformation, why its narratives find fertile ground among them and what can be done to change that.

According to the Pew Research Center, only 20 percent of Americans trust their government. The same low percentage has “a lot” of trust in the national news media. It’s impossible to say definitively what causes this mistrust, but its growth has coincided with the rise of both the adrenaline-driven internet news cycle and the dying of local journalism over the past two decades. Without news that connects people to their town councils or county fair, or stories that analyze how federal policies affect local businesses, people are left with news about big banks in New York and dirty politics in Washington.

Readers compare this coverage with their dwindling bank balances and crumbling infrastructure and feel disconnected and disenfranchised, and latch onto something — anything — that speaks to them. That might be President Trump’s tweets. Or dubious “news” from an extreme right- or left-wing site might ring true. Or they might turn to Russian disinformation, which exploits this trust gap.

Jankowicz blames the spread of “Russian disinformation” (which has been shown to be nearly nonexistent, by the way) on “the rise of both the adrenaline-driven internet news cycle and the dying of local journalism over the past two decades” as if a lack of reporting on “news that connects people to their town councils or county fair” leave people vulnerable to a conspiracy between Trump and Putin to skew the election.


But as bad as all that is (and it is bad), her solution in 2017 is simply amazing, mind-numbingly worse:

The fight starts in people’s minds, and the molding of them. In K-12 curriculums, states should encourage a widespread refocusing on critical reading and analysis skills for the digital age. Introductory seminars at universities should include a crash course in sourcing and emotional manipulation in the media. Similar courses could be created as professional development for adults, beginning with state employees. Large corporations could be offered government incentives to participate, too.

She cites a program by IREX, a nongovernmental organization operating in Ukraine (which at the time was just breaking free from Biden’s financial manipulation) and a similar program in Finland as evidence that what Americans lack is basic critical thinking and reading comprehension skills.

And while that may be true, her solution is insane:

The American government should also work to level the information playing field, increasing its investment in public broadcasters and demanding a hefty financial commitment from companies like Facebook and Twitter — the unwitting agents of Russia’s information war — to support the proliferation of local, citizen-focused journalism. If social networks are unwilling to be the arbiters of truth (despite 45 percent of American adults’ getting news from Facebook), they should at the very least provide grants to reporters who cover the local issues that most immediately affect people’s lives and donate advertising to small outlets that cannot compete with national media giants.

And — evidencing the fact that in 2017, Jankowicz could have no idea that in 2022 she would be leading a “disinformation governance board” under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security — she wrote:

All is not lost. Disinformation can be defeated without the establishment of a shiny new initiative cased in the language of Cold War 2.0. Instead of “rapid information operations,” the United States should work to systematically rebuild analytical skills across the American population and invest in the media to ensure that it is driven by truth, not clicks.

So, in 2017, with Trump in the White House, she eschewed “regulation for social media” and other heavy-handed government measures. But that was then, this is now.

Let’s see how long it takes for her to forget her words from 2017 and begin “a shiny new initiative cased in the language of Cold War 2.0” that features “rapid information operations” to quash what she and her fellow arbiters of truth deem false. And remember, that designation will not be based on truth but on partisan political expediency.

Aside from the fact that this “disinformation governance board” sounds eerily like it could be the backstory for the “Ministry of Truth” from Orwell’s 1984, the immediate concern is such a heavy-handed government board — with the weight of DHS behind it — deciding for us what differentiates information from disinformation. After all, the Deep State is unconcerned with what is true; the only concern is finding what can be used to manipulate people and elections.

To put DHS — a department so deeply Deep State that it nearly defines the term — in charge of ensuring election integrity and preventing misinformation from being used to sway elections is a farce of epic proportions. To compare it to putting the fox in charge of the henhouse is an affront to foxes everywhere.

After all, these are the same types of folks (and, in some cases the very folkswho called Hunter Biden’s laptop “Russian disinformation” and who rapidly changed the meaning of “disinformation” as soon as the facts of their Covid mandates came under such scrutiny that they could no longer stand.

Make no mistake, the American Ministry of Truth is being operated by the very people who skewed the 2020 election by blocking — as “disinformation” — real news stories that would have likely cost Biden the election.

How the World Economic Forum Uses Newspeak to Wage War


SEE: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2022/04/29/world-economic-forum-newspeak.aspx;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:


  • The use of “newspeak” is a military-grade methodology of “hacking” our instincts and tricking us into acting against our best interests
  • In the natural world, the method of “disguising as a friend” exists strictly as a hunting technique — but today, it is applied by the power holders to the entire population
  • For centuries, invaders and reformers have been using upside-down language to confuse the enemy and recruit loyal supporters
  • Since 2020, we have seen many definitions changed, from medical terms to things like “compassion” and “freedom”
  • World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community is a recruitment effort designed to eventually misplace those who want to live in the “old normal”

This story is about a particular genre of lying, namely the genre of covertly changing definitions in order to convince us to accept horrible things and be "happy" about it. The creation of upside-down language, in military terms, is "hacking" of our instincts designed to trick us into acting against our best interests.

This practice is abundantly illustrated by the COVID "biosecurity" propaganda — as well as by the tradition of grooming loyal supporters through the World Economic Forum's "Global Shapers."

Upside-down language is treacherous because in the natural world, the method of "disguising as a friend in order to catch prey" is strictly a hunting technique — but today, the power holders apply it across the board, to the entire population. Which then, if we think about it honestly, makes it clear what kind of relationship we've been having with the Machine.

It is not a relationship of benevolence but a relationship between a hunter and prey! (And perhaps, from the standpoint of existential clarity, the Great Reset showed up in such an ugly way to help us realize that we've been in an abusive relationship with the Machine for a while?)

Upside-Down Language: Funny Examples to Highlight the Absurdity of It

I think we all know this beast very well but to make the absurdity stand out even more, here are two funny metaphors.

Straightforward lying: pointing at a brick and saying, "It's a bird." Or pointing at a defective brick and saying that it's an excellent, high-quality brick that surely works great in construction! (See traditional advertising.)

Upside-down language: secretly changing the definition of "bird" to include bricks, then announcing that there is a new revolutionary technology of building homes from birds — and when somebody says, "But those are clearly bricks," raising one's voice and saying, "No, those are BIRDS. Look it up." The king is not naked, and newspeak is the old speak. Don't you know?!

The Feeling of Disappointment Follows Inevitably

Another exaggerated metaphor: Imagine that someone tells you, "I promise to marry you next year!" And then they go ahead and change the definition of "marriage" to "sending a birthday text." And because they do send you a birthday text, they then say that they have surely kept their promise!

But you somehow, strangely, feel cheated — and so, to curb your complaints, someone then tells you that there is great honor and dignity in the new (and only) definition of marriage because it allows you to say "free" and not "depend" on the other person while being honorably "married"! And those other people telling you that you are not really married are clearly idiots who don't love you.

And perhaps, because your mind wants you to feel dignified, it tricks you into going into denial and pretending you are really married. And this is how you find yourself in the world of upside-down language, as a gaslit victim in denial!

And something still doesn't feel quite right — but you no longer remember what it is and why you feel this way! You forgot the original meaning because remembering it makes you feel like a loser. (For some reason, our evolving relationship with a certain medical product comes to mind).

This certainly is an outrageous and funny example but this is exactly how abusive relationships work. The victim's mind has to constantly accept "updated" definitions of love, care, and truth in order to save one's face. And this is how abusers can get away with a lot — up until the point in time when the pain of the victim becomes so unbearable that forces change.

Examples of "Updated" Definitions From the COVID Era

Since 2020, many important definitions related to health and medical measures have been changed, such as case (herehereherehere, and here), fatality from a particular diseasevaccineherd immunityunvaccinatedanti-vaxxersavailable ICU bedsbreakthrough cases (which in itself is a change from "vaccine failure") — and many more.

But as importantly, our aspiring "masters" have been constantly "updating" definitions that refer to our fundamental instincts and conditions, such as "health," "compassion," "freedom," and so on. I find it particularly treacherous because it allows any non-benevolent actor to turn our innate qualities into weapons against ourselves!

For example, early on, has been a fascinating series of United Nations "pandemic" images that tell a story of cruel propaganda. Here's how, according to that series, you love your grandma:

And here is the importance of stopping "misinformation":

According to newspeak, "compassion" means not touching your children or your parents. Not socializing. Not visiting your loved one in the hospital. Their version of compassion sounds horribly self-eliminating and sociopathic!

And responsible behavior? According to newspeak, "responsible behavior" means inhaling your exhaust and enthusiastically accepting an experimental medical product with unknown long-term effects. No questions asked. All based on another hijacked definition, the so called "community values," as per by our aspiring "masters" who wouldn't know "community" if it stared them in the face — and who are certainly not morally qualified to lead anyone anywhere.

Historical Examples of Newspeak

It reminds me of how back in my old homeland of Russia before the Soviet Union fell apart, the official marketing brochure said that we were "the freest country in the world."

There was even a very popular radio song about it, called "My country is so spacious" (it really sounds much less awkward in Russian). The song contained a line that went, "I don't know any other country where a man can breathe so freely." Well no wonder, no one knew any other country because barely anyone could travel abroad!

My point here is not picking on isms, as the Soviet Union never had an exclusive patent on newspeak, it just happens to be the newspeak that I grew up on. America has long practiced its own version of newspeak where a resource grab has never been a resource grab but a noble act to establish "progress" or "democracy," with the initial "democracy march" requiring a genocide of "hostile Indians" who outrageously dared defend their land.)

A few years ago, I wrote a story called "Nature, Flags, and Birch Trees: Political Power of Emotions," in which I went into the subject of "newspeak flavors" in detail.

Sadly, history is full of newspeak! Upside-down language has been an important weaponry item for "disrupters" and robbers for thousands of years! But it feels to me as a Soviet ex-pat that today's version of upside-down language is really close to the one from my old homeland, and I don't like it. It didn't lead to anything good in my old homeland, and it is likely to be a disaster again if repeated.

Upside-Down Language and the Global Shapers

With all this in mind, let's look at the military-grade World Economic Forum project called "Global Shapers." Here is how it defines itself:

"Born out of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people under the age of 30 working together to address local, regional, and global challenges. With more than 14,000 members, the Global Shapers Community spans 456 city-based hubs in 150 countries."

"In 2011, Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, founded the Global Shapers Community to empower young people to play an active role in shaping local, regional and global agendas."

"The Global Shapers Community is a non-profit organization registered in Geneva, Switzerland and housed at the World Economic Forum. The Forum's contribution to the Shapers organization includes significant financial and in-kind contributions for operational support including staff time, technology tools and opportunities to interact and collaborate with its membership network."

Among its partners are Salesforce, Accenture, The Climate Reality Project, and other noble entities. And here is Mr. Schwab himself, doing a sweet talk on how he decided to "give young people a voice":

An "Upgrade" in WEF Language

By the way, it looks like the World Economic Forum is learning to speak more subtly and thus, even more treacherously. There is no more "you'll own nothing and you'll be happy." "Owning nothing" is now the quiet part. In fact, if I were to look at their marketing through the eyes of a post-Soviet kid who wants to be "Western cool," I would see all this as an exciting career opportunity!

(It really is a global military operation, so it has to be innocent-sounding, convincing, and elegant — and by the way, the corporate recruitment of the early post-Soviet times wasn't too much different and probably benefitted the same "stakeholders," in a time-appropriate manner. Just a side thought, based on my memory of the post-Soviet corporate recruitment, that came with "newspeak" of its own.)

The language on the Global Shapers website is really lofty, and really "positive" sounding (except for an occasional slip about "rethinking what it means to be human." Come progress! Come the roads, the internet, and gender equality! Come the bright young cultists leaders shaping the world's future's vision! Hooray! Hooray!

Of course, "framing" is an art, and one can frame anything — including murder — in a positive thing. Burning a woman at stake could be framed as "saving her soul." Destroying indigenous people can be framed as "bringing them culture," etc., etc.

All of it has been done to real, breathing people who merely minded their business — and it's really heartbreaking. I am writing about newspeak today with such passion because newspeak has an ugly history throughout the centuries, and it's time to spit it out.

A Military Operation

This entire thing with Global Shapers is of course like recruiting an army. Aspiring masters cannot do anything by themselves, so they always seek to recruit, indoctrinate, and bribe the most malleable to support their "vision."

The Bolsheviks, for example, put a lot of energy into "raising" a new generation of "communist" leaders and into glorifying those who supported their version of "new normal" most enthusiastically. They invested in creating a psychological gap between the children and the parents.

The Bolshevik elites didn't care about their supporters — who mostly lived in abject poverty unless they were in the upper echelon — but they surely paid them lip service, and gave them "dignity" by allowing them to take the dignity away from some of their fellows …

Similarly, European elites who were seeking to benefit from the riches of the Western hemisphere, not yet colonized at the time, could not do it without "manpower," and so they lured a bunch of impoverished Europeans to travel across the ocean in search of a better life.

And since a better life was sorely needed by a lot of common Europeans at the time, the masters of those days cynically used that fact to recruit the impoverished Europeans as their "manpower" to fight the "hostile Indians."

The early American "branding" was very different from the Bolshevik "branding" but the essence of the conquest was not dissimilar: "You are the good, righteous people. Those guys over there are the evil people. They own stuff that righteously belongs to you. Go take it from them, and we'll let you keep some of it." History is ugly.

And since today's events seem to run on the same emotional fuel of conquest, it seems like that army of young Global Shapers is being recruited mostly as "manpower" to drive away from the people with "old normal" habits. As I said, it's a military operation.

Newspeak, or the "upside-down" language, is the weapon of indoctrination. The adults may remember the original meanings of words, they may feel resentful. But the kids simply imbibe the meanings they are given. This is why the World Economic Forum is investing in grooming youth. Disgusting!

What Now?

We seem to be in a historically important moment. I believe that the predators' existential function is to make sure that we are fully alive and awake. Predators use weaponized language to make us act against our own interests. They create an atmosphere in which self-betrayal sounds tempting — but it's a trick!

Realistically, it is rare for human beings to choose the right thing on the first attempt in the absence of great pressure — so it's unknown what the near future of the world will look like — but no matter whether our road to victory is fast or dragged out, in the end, the victory is ours. On my end, I pray with passion that our road is the kindest one.

Parents Beware: They’re After Your Children

  • Psychological obedience training is being used to control the global population, from cradle to grave.

  • Unless we refuse to comply or participate, our social credit scores and climate scores will soon dictate everything we can and cannot do in life

In the video below, finance expert Catherine Austin Fitts, Polly Tommey and Carolyn Betts interview investigative journalist Corey Lynn, who runs a blog called “Corey’s Digs.” She’s also the author of “Global Landscape on Vaccine ID Passports,” available from her website.1

In this interview, Lynn discusses how psychological obedience training is being used to control the global population from cradle to grave. She reviews programs that mine your personal data and indoctrinate users to become reliant on digital currency, and offers practical advice for those who recognize the dangers and want to break free.

As noted by Tommey, the technocratic elite are after our children, and they’re using a variety of psychological tools to shape and mold them into obedient and clueless serfs. The more we know about their strategies, the better we can protect our children from these predators.

What the Infrastructure Bill Is Actually Funding

Lynn starts off with a potent example of how the U.S. government is using our own money to build the prison walls around us. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (HR 3684) was passed by Congress and signed by President Biden in November 2021.

This $1.2 trillion spending bill includes a number of questionable and outright nefarious allocations. Importantly, this bill grants control over what and when you drive to the transportation system. It will control the type of vehicle you can use and when you can drive, Lynn explains.

It will control the vehicle-to-grid 5G technology and its kill switches (which will be built in). The bill also includes an integrated payment system and a per-mile driving fee. Twenty-seven pilot programs are also listed that will given them even more control over your transportation in the future.

As noted by Lynn, “Our taxpayer dollars are going to build our control grid.” For more information, see her article, “A Clearer Breakdown of What This Infrastructure Bill Is Really Funding.”2

Social Emotional Learning Is Programming

The effort to control you starts from birth. Lynn reviews the use of social emotional learning (SEL), which uses the relabeling and changing of words to alter our perception of reality and mold children’s beliefs and behaviors.

“The Department of Education was created in 1979, and ever since then, they've been building up to Common Core, building in all these Marxist agendas and pulling in critical race theory (CRT),” Lynn says.

“It's a psychological agenda. It's not a single curriculum. This is [about] ideologies and behaviors and thought processes, it's obedience training and conditioning that starts in preschool, and it's embedded throughout the day. So, it's a whole mind control system.

They're creating what the World Economic Forum (WEF) likes to refer to as digital citizens, for the future workforce, and so they're bringing in all this ed-tech and doing massive data mining. We have statewide longitudinal data systems that are tracking behavior ...

In 2016, they started kicking billions of dollars into this ... and then they started pulling in legislation. And while COVID is going on, they say, ‘Well, we really need to step this up, we need to pour more money into this because of the mental health and well being of children.’

And so, they are molding the children, they're building their social scores ... and then they're bringing it into parents. They're saying we need to teach the parents too, so the parents can help train the kids. And they're bringing it into businesses ... This is a major psychological obedience training to lead to AI.

This is an excerpt from ‘Dreaming the Future of Health for the Next 100 Years,’ a 2013 white paper from the Global Health Summit that was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation:3

‘We will interact more with artificial intelligence. The use of robotics [and] bioengineering to augment human functioning is already well underway and will advance. Reengineering of humans into potentially separate and unequal forms through genetic engineering or mixed human robots raises debates on ethics and equality.

A new demography is projected to emerge after 2030 of technologies, robotics, genetic engineering, nanotechnology, producing robots, engineered organisms, nanobots and artificial intelligence that can self replicate. Debates will grow on the implications of an impending reality of human-designed life.’

So, this, this is where this is all heading ... It’s in 110 countries, it's all over the US. It's in most schools, and they're starting in preschool. This is what you're dealing with. So, when you're considering homeschooling, I just want people to understand what they're up against, and what they need to weed out. It's more than just the school board. There are a lot of parts going on here.”

Already, there are several companies that collect and analyze your child’s personal data to build their social credit score. In the beginning, the data collection was fairly generic, such as age, demographics and grades, but now they’ve started to collect behavioral information as well, such as scientific literacy, ICT literacy, financial literacy, cultural and civic literacy.

They also collect data on competencies such as critical thinking skills, problem solving, creativity, communication and collaboration, plus character qualities such as curiosity, initiative, persistence, grit, adaptability, leadership, social and cultural awareness. You can learn more about all of this in Lynn’s nine-part series, the “2030 Psychological Agenda.”4

They’re Teaching Children To Be Nice but Stupid

Another important point made by Austin Fitts is that many of the “improvements” in education have been designed to make children less knowledgeable. For example, Common Core “is designed to make you phenomenally ignorant of math, and very obedient and easy to control,” she says, adding:

“I used to have a dental surgeon who, all he wanted to talk about was how furious he was at the schools. He said his kids had been taught that if they were going to get together and design a bridge, it was more important that they get along than they use the right number for Pi. As long as they got along, it was okay if the bridge fell down.”

Financial apps aimed at children are another form of programming. For example, the FinTech app “Greenlight,” advertised as a debit card for kids and teens, is financed by players such as Wells Fargo, JP Morgan, Chase and Amazon. Lynn explains:

“On the surface, this may look great. Parents can help their children understand investing, how to save money and whatnot. But when you start looking at the investors ... and where this is really going, what they're doing is programming. They say this is created by families, for families, even though there are 29 big investors in this ...

They're saying this is to help for parents to raise financially smart kids. So, what they do is, the [parents] pay them their allowance, or they pay them for chores. It goes through a little MasterCard Greenlight card that then goes into the bank ... and then they can control their spending. So, it's teaching them about getting involved in the banking system digitally.”

Of course, we now know that the globalist elite are planning to roll out a programmable central bank digital currency (CBDC), with which they’ll be able to control how, where and when you spend your own money. So, “Greenlight” is basically teaching children to see this system as completely normal. As noted by Austin Fitts, “They're getting groomed to plug into a system which will be centrally controlled.”

How to Break the Indoctrination Schedule

Parents who are waking up to the nightmare planned for their children by the WEF and its allies are now starting to fight back. Here are a few key things parents need to do to protect their young children from the indoctrination currently trying to swallow their children:

  • Homeschool your children. Some parents are starting their own schools, educating five or six children
  • Get your children out in nature as much as possible
  • Eliminate mindless TV watching and cell phone use
  • Be a role model for your children. That means modeling appropriate use of television and technologies such as computers, cell phones and social media

Minimizing your cell phone use, to whatever extent possible, is one thing everyone can do. Lynn says:

“I truly believe that if we ditch [our cell phones], if 50% of the population ditched them, that would put a major crushing to their agenda, on most of what they're rolling out. There’s geofencing on phones. Everywhere you go, you're being tracked ... You don't even have to be on the phone. It could just be in your pocket, it can be in your car.

They're constantly aggregating data from us so they can then use it against us, and ... they have the ability to target us on an individual basis. They track everything we do on the internet as well. When I go on walks with my dog, I don't bring my phone with me ... Anywhere I go, I leave the phone at home, or I leave it in the car.”

If we do nothing to change our technology-addicted lifestyles, what will happen to us in 10 years’ time? Where will we be? Austin Fitts is convinced we’ll all be slaves — literally enslaved by the technology that is tracking and analyzing us every moment. Decisions will be made for us by AI, based on our social credit scores.

Children may even be taken from their families at a young age and brought up in facilities where their upbringing and behavior can be controlled. “Parents will have no authority over their children and the children ... their bodies and their minds, will be used to prototype all sorts of transhumanism,” Austin Fitts says.

Understand the End Game and Do Not Comply

There’s really only one way to prevent the transhumanist, centrally controlled authoritarian regime from getting a foothold: Do not comply. We have to say no to all of their schemes. If you do comply, understand that you are erecting your own prison walls, and that of your children, with every data point you let them have.

“It's all under the guise of convenience,” Lynn says. “Going back to cell phones, and technology in general ... People need to start seeing these things for what they are. And instead of looking at it and immediately going, ‘Oh, this is great, oh, this is so convenient, oh, this is going to save me time,’ they need to stop and take a look at who the company is.

Who's behind it? Dig around in their website, see who the leadership is, see who the investors are ... and just understand their ultimate end game. So when they're throwing these things out there, with all their fluff and pizzazz, you don't take the bait. They're trapping you into more and more control over you.”

The Planned Takeover of Your Bank Account

Also, consider using cash as much as possible, and move your money out of the big banks, as they too are part of the control system. Lynn explains:

“I got out of mine about a year ago, and I wasn't even in one of the biggest, worst ones. But I started noticing that they were categorizing my spending. I'm like, ‘What is this?’ All of a sudden, it's showing my grocery shopping and restaurant and health care?

I tell people go into your bank right now, look at the categorizing that's happening. They're already getting the infrastructure set up to control spending by categorizing it all. It's not for your convenience, so you can better budget and see how you're spending your money.”

For more information about this, see Lynn’s article, “Financial Takeover and Your Bank Account — BlackRock, Envestnet/Yodlee, and The Federal Reserve.”5,6 The short video above also summarizes the most important points of that article.

One important point highlighted by Austin Fitts is that banks can store their data on the bank server or the provider server. Austin Fitts says, “You want to call them and make sure the bank is keeping the data on their server, because you did not give permission for all of that data to be shared with the provider.” Having the data stored on the bank server helps protect against this malicious data harvesting.

In closing, I urge you to listen to the featured interview, as I’ve only summarized some of the key points here. In it, they review and discuss several signs, things that are happening now, that clearly illustrate where we’re headed.

Turkey: Freedom of Religion Only for Islam~BOYCOTT TURKISH FIREARMS



SEE: https://robertspencer.org/2022/04/turkey-freedom-of-religion-only-for-islam;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Turkey has long been heralded by the international media as a “secular” and “modern” country. But in reality, it is the absolute opposite. Non-Muslim communities – Christians, Jews, Alevis, Yazidis, agnostics, deists, atheists, and all others – are systematically victimized by discriminatory acts, including violations of their human rights, their convictions, their faith, and their freedom of speech.

2022 report by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee’s Freedom of Belief Initiative, entitled “An Appeal to Move Forward from Aspirations to Actions: Monitoring Report on the Right to Freedom of Religion or Belief in Turkey,” reveals Turkey’s decades-long abuses against non-Muslim communities across the country.

The Committee lists some of the violations of the rights of non-Muslims:

  • Atheists, deists, and agnostics encounter daily infringement on their right to freedom of thought and belief in the workplace, family, and the education system. Atheist, deist, and agnostic parents and students do not have the right to exemption from the compulsory religious instruction in the Religious Culture and Ethics lessons.
  • Those who express criticism of religion or belief in general, or of specific interpretations, especially those of Islam, face complaints and risk being prosecuted under the Turkish Penal Code.
  • No religious or belief community in Turkey has a legal personality as such. Religious or belief groups and their representative institutions, such as Patriarchates of the Chief Rabbinate, lack legal entity status and as such, cannot access the court system, open bank accounts, buy property or officially employ their own religious officials and provide social security for them. Individuals belonging to religious, or belief groups organize themselves as associations or establish foundations with religious intent, though these are also subject to limitations.
  • Important restrictions continue to hamper the associative capacity of the non-Muslim community foundations. The foundations’ board elections have been obstructed since 2013. As a result, the functioning of the community foundations and the beneficiary communities continue to be paralyzed and weak.
  • Acquiring place of worship status remains an ongoing challenge for several religious communities. This is particularly true for the Alevi, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Protestant communities. The kingdom halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the churches of the Protestant community, and the cemevis of the Alevi community are in particularly precarious positions due to this lack of an official place of worship status. The public authorities have systematically denied a place of worship status to these sites, in disregard of relevant ECtHR [European Court of Human Rights] judgments.
  • Many religious buildings are on the verge of ruin and at risk of being lost even though they are officially registered as cultural heritage sites by the Cultural Heritage Preservation Regional Boards under the umbrella of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
  • Furthermore, the impact of past loss of properties and associated foundations belonging to a wide range of religious or belief groups continues to be a scar in need of attention. For non-Muslim communities, the process of returning community foundation property that was unjustly taken has not been completed; the damage has yet to be fully remedied.

The report gives as examples the Hagia Sophia former Church and the Chora former Church in Constantinople that were converted into mosques in 2020.

“Both Hagia Sophia and Chora were originally built as churches, converted into mosques during the Ottoman period, and then converted into museums during the Republican Period,” the report adds.

In 2005, the Association of Permanent Foundations and Service to Historical Artifacts and Environment filed a lawsuit to challenge the status of the Chora Church as a museum. In November 2019, the Council of State, Turkey’s highest administrative court, ordered that it was to be reconverted to a mosque. A Presidential Decree opening the Chora (Kariye) Mosque to worship was published in the Official Gazette on 21 August 2020. In October 2020 the images of Jesus Christ, frescoes and icons in the museum were covered by white curtains.

In July 2020, the Turkish Council of State Tenth Chamber annulled the 1934 Cabinet Decree making it a museum. The Council of State ruled unanimously to nullify the 1934 Cabinet Decree as contrary to the law. Almost immediately after the ruling, President [Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan signed a presidential decree on 10 July 2020 turning the site back into a mosque. The decree transferred the administration of the Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya-i Kebir) Mosque to the Presidency of Religious Affairs (Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı, DİB or Diyanet), a public body under the Presidency responsible for the administration of all mosques in Turkey.”

  • No measures have been taken to eliminate interference [of the government] in the internal affairs of the Armenian Orthodox, Jewish, and Greek Orthodox communities in the appointment of religious leaders. This is despite the finding of the Turkish Constitutional Court that the interference in the latest election of the Armenian Patriarch was not prescribed by law.
  • Glaring inequalities in the legal restrictions facing training religious personnel other than Sunni Muslim religious personnel and in public resources allocated to the training of Sunni Muslim religious personnel versus the denial of resources to the training of other religious personnel have not been remedied.
  • Religious communities, such as the Alevi community, Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, Armenian Patriarchate, and Protestant community, have been unable to train religious staff within Turkey.
  • Turkish authorities have continued to issue travel restrictions targeting Christian foreigners. These restrictions interfere with several human rights including freedom of religion or belief, the right to a fair trial, freedom of movement, and protection of aliens against unlawful expulsion. This practice also impacts the Protestant community since, not being permitted to train their own teachers, they rely on foreign religious workers.
  • Public funding of religious services is provided solely for the Sunni Islamic community. This is in contradiction with the prohibition of discrimination and with the state’s obligation to observe the principle of equality.
  • As a result of the denial of public religious services, requested by the Alevi applicants, and the non-recognition of the Alevi faith by the state, Alevis are unable to fully exercise their right to freedom of religion or belief.
  • The child’s right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, their right to participation, as well as parents’ rights to raise their children in line with their own philosophical or religious views, are subject to systematic interference in Turkey’s public education system. The mandatory Religious Culture and Ethics (RCE) lessons, including the exemption mechanism, the optional religion courses, Islamic religious practices in schools, and high school placement exams constitute substantial interference in the protection of, among others, the child’s right to freedom of religion or belief.
  • Women across different religious or belief communities face significant obstructions to free will in the exercise of their human rights, including freedom of religion or belief. Some of the central findings of this report demonstrate that women continue to be especially vulnerable in their homes, women are prone to pressures from secular and religious segments of society, and women often feel compelled to live double lives. Furthermore, men continue to exercise a monopoly over the interpretation of religious dogma and religious offices. Decision-making processes in religious or belief communities also remain dominated by men.

All these rights violations are rooted in or inspired by Islamic teachings.

Islam does not allow freedom of religion and threatens the death penalty for apostasy. As the website “The Religion of Peace” (ROP) puts it, “The only freedom of belief in Islam is the freedom to become Muslim.” The ROP website also notes:

Muslims are told to fight unbelievers until they are either dead, converted to Islam, or in a permanent state of subjugation under Muslim domination. Allowing people of other faiths to live and worship independently of Islamic rule is not an option.

And in the Islamic teachings and traditions, there is no room for a secular political system in which all people are treated as equals.

While the believers of all other religions and non-religious citizens are oppressed and deprived of their human rights, one of the most important institutions of the country is the Presidency of Religious Affairs, a Sunni Islamic institution, referred to in Turkish simply as the Diyanet. It was established in 1924. The President of Turkey appoints the President of the Diyanet. Provincial muftis and imams working in Sunni mosques are appointed by the Diyanet. With an enormous budget, a plentiful staff, broad activities, and a great sphere of influence, the Diyanet is a bigger institution than many ministries of Turkey.

The institutions and associations belonging to non-Muslims, however, are subject to organized discrimination. The demographic collapse of Christians and Jews has made the problem even worse. Today only 0.1% of Turkey’s whole population is Christian or Jewish, because of decades of persecution culminating in the genocide at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Massacres swept across the Christian population of Anatolia from 1894 to 1924. During the three decades, around 2.5 million Armenians, Assyrians, and Greeks were murdered by Turks. The historians Benny Morris and Dror Ze’evi detail the crimes committed during this period in their book The Thirty-Year Genocide.

Also, in 1934, Jews in eastern Thrace were exposed to a pogrom. From 1941 to 1942, Turkey enlisted all Christian and Jewish males in the military, including the elderly and mentally ill. They were forced to work under horrendous conditions in labor battalions. In 1942, a wealth tax was imposed to eliminate Christians and Jews from the economy. In 1955, Greeks, Armenians, and Jews were targeted by a pogrom in Istanbul. And in 1964, the remaining Greeks were forcefully expelled from Turkey. All of the above contributed to the ethnic cleansing of Christians and Jews in Turkey.

Even after those crimes, Turkey arbitrarily continues to violate the rights of the non-Muslims who are still living in the country, as the most recent report by the Norwegian Helsinki Committee’s Freedom of Belief Initiative has once more revealed.

It is the Islamic government of Turkey and much of its Islamic society that are responsible for this continual prejudice and abuse of human rights. Dissidents living under such Islamic dictatorships, however, are not allowed to have public debates about these issues, because of the ideological refusal to recognize their freedom of speech if they are “kafirs” or “infidels” and ever dared to question historic facts, and above all, Islam.

Washington state Congressional candidate wants $30 an hour minimum wage

Mike Rowe slams Dem's call for $30 minimum wage: 'Why not $50?'

Why not $60? Or $100? Or $1,000,000? Make everyone a millionaire, and all our economic troubles will be over, right? Rebecca Parson and there are many others who think like this “patriotic, Catholic, and queer” candidate, lacks a basic understanding of economics. If you force businesses to pay more in wages, they’ll cut expenses in other ways, often by reducing the number of people employed. So minimum wage hikes often lead to increased unemployment. And when producers know that everyone has that kind of money, they raise prices in order to try to make back some of what they’re paying in increased wages. Minimum wage hikes thus often lead to inflation. They thus more likely increase misery than alleviate it.

“$30 An Hour Minimum Wage? This Democratic Candidate Says Yes,” by Dillon Burroughs, Daily Wire, April 25, 2022:

A Democratic congressional candidate in Washington State is arguing for a $30 per hour minimum wage, claiming that the $15 minimum wage movement is an outdated number.

Rebecca Parson, a candidate for Washington’s 6th District that includes Tacoma, shared the comment recently in a post on Twitter.

“$15 minimum wage is an antiquated demand. It should be $30 per hour,” she tweeted.

“1 adult supporting 1 kid needs $30 an hour across the country. Rural, urban, suburban: $30 is the floor. As you say your nightly prayers to Saint Elon while you fall asleep tonight, reflect on why you punch down on poor people instead of up at your heavenly billionaire,” she added in another post.

In her campaign video, Parson said, “I and other organizers have occupied empty buildings, demanding housing for our homeless neighbors. I risked arrest because we can’t just wait for the corporate establishment to help.”

Parson also claimed in her video that she will emulate “Congresswoman Cori Bush,” a “Squad” member and progressive Democrat who slept outside in Washington, D.C., to advocate for housing. Parson claims she can identify with the need, as she’s “been homeless, too,” despite holding a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins.

DAVID WOOD: Without Lies, Islam . . .~Ramadan: A Time to Celebrate Murder, Bloodshed, and Slavery

Ramadan: A Time to Celebrate Murder, Bloodshed, and Slavery

The Islamic holy month has more to offer than fasting.


SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2022/04/ramadan-time-celebrate-murder-bloodshed-and-raymond-ibrahim/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast, pray, engage in acts of piety and charity, and reminisce over warfare and bloodshed in the name of Islam.

Virtually every Ramadan features various Islamic authorities, personages, and/or institutes reminding Muslims to take pride in and celebrate various historic battles between Muslims and non-Muslims, or “infidels” (as in this hour-long televised special). Among other things, such victories are meant to demonstrate the power, and thus truth, of Islam.

This alone should underscore Islam’s innate militancy in comparison to other religions. It further suggests that Islam is a worldly religion, one that takes pride and finds validation in something as corporeal and temporal as a victory in warfare (with all the attendant collection of booty and slaves that entails).

By way of analogy, and to better appreciate Ramadan-time celebrations of jihad, imagine Christians gathered together in church during Christmas or Easter.  Then, the officiating pastor eulogizes the bloody military conquests Christians had over non-Christians during Christmas or Easter—even as the congregants cheer or at least feel deep pride in their Christian faith.

Not only is such a scenario exceedingly difficult to imagine—a reflection of how utterly different Christianity and Islam are from one another—but many of today’s Christians have become so anti-war as to characterize even self-defense as “un-Christian.”  That, at least, is what the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, seems to think: recently, while condemning war, he went so far as also to condemn Just War, the idea that war is legitimate when waged for just reasons (self-defense, liberating conquered peoples or territory, etc.)

Hence the double irony: most of the wars that took place on, and which Muslims celebrate every, Ramadan had nothing to do with just war, and were in fact aggressive and imperialistic in nature.

An article by the popular website AboutIslam.net makes all this clear.  Titled, “7 Remarkable Islamic Victories That Took Place in Ramadan,” it opens by saying, “Ramadan is a special month that’s full of blessings for the Muslim Ummah. It is not only famous for fasting and charity, but also for great Islamic victories that changed the world.”

Examining the list, however, there is no question that at least five of the seven military episodes it mentions—the battle of Badr and the conquests of Mecca, Spain, Crimea, and Nubia—were unjust, meaning they had nothing to do with Muslims engaging in self-defense or liberating their conquered territories and everything to do with Muslims waging unprovoked wars of conquest in search of plunder.

For example, although much extolled in Islamic historiography for being Islam’s first major victory over infidels, when stripped of its hagiographical veneer, the battle of Badr (624 AD) appears to have been little more than a caravan raid, driven by the lust for booty.

Similarly, Muslims were the aggressors in the various conquests highlighted by AboutIslam.net for taking place during Ramadan.  During these conquests, Muslims invaded non-Muslim territories, butchered and enslaved their inhabitants, and appropriated their lands—and for no other reason, and under no other logic, than that they were “infidels,” non-Muslims.

The eighth-century invasion and subsequent conquest of Spain, for instance, featured hordes of invading Muslims slaughtering countless thousands of Christians and torching their churches (in one notable incident in Cordoba, the Muslims managed to kill two birds with one stone when they torched a church with its inhabitants trapped inside).

Same with the Crimea.  Originally inhabited by Slavic peoples, Muslims—Turks and Tatars—brutally conquered it in the fifteenth century and turned it into an emporium of white flesh.  An estimated three million Slavs—Poles, Lithuanians, Russians, and Ukrainians—were enslaved and, according to a contemporary chronicle, sold “like sheep” between 1450 and 1783.

This is what Muslims are supposed to remember and celebrate during their holy month—during their equivalent of a “Christmas” or “Easter” season: the unprovoked invasions and bloody subjugations their ancestors undertook in the name of Islam against people whose only “crime” was to be non-Muslims.  (Little wonder that, so riled, Muslims not infrequently murderously assault infidels in their midst during Ramadan.)

Incidentally, taking pride in Islamic violence is not limited to “radical” sheiks or websites; it is quite mainstream.  Thus, not only is the popular English language website, AboutIslam.net, considered “moderate” and meant to put a good face on Islam before infidels; but the aforementioned article celebrating seven battles/conquests during Ramadan was published by the website’s “Family & Life” team.

Before closing, and lest Muslims truly believe that Ramadan is exclusively a month of victorious jihads, let it be noted that Muslims also lost a fair bit of military engagements during their holy month—the pivotal Battle of Tours (732), when outnumbered Franks halted Islam’s advance into Europe, being just one of the more memorable.
