UK Supermarket Calls Police On Disabled Man For Not Wearing Mask, Tries to Make Him Wear Yellow Sticker LIKE THE JEWS IN NAZI GERMANY

"It's not law, she's going to phone the police over a policy."

British supermarket Morrisons called the police on a disabled man who was medically exempt from wearing a face mask after attempting to make him wear a yellow sticker.

Yes, really.

The clip shows the man involved in a confrontation with a security guard and staff as they try to make him wear the sticker.

The man calls them out by asking how a sticker could stop the spread of coronavirus.

When he refuses to wear the sticker, he is asked to leave the store as staff claim they are just doing their job.

“Weren’t they just doing their job in the Nazi Germany? Can you remember how they said that during the Nuremberg trials?”

The staff then call the police, although are unsure if they should be calling the ‘999’ emergency number.

The security guard says the yellow stickers are to “explain to other people in the store that you’re medically exempt,” despite this not being part of the law.

“It’s not law, she’s going to phone the police over a policy, you can’t phone the police over a policy,” explains the man, who ends up paying for his shopping and leaving before any police arrive.

According to the law, people do not have to answer questions as to why they are medically exempt and are not required to signal to others with any kind of sticker or badge that they are medically exempt.

The dark undertones of forcing disabled people to wear yellow stars hardly needs to be explained.

This underscores how the obsession with forcing people to wear face masks, despite their efficacy being disputed by numerous studies, is being abused to target the vulnerable.

Big Brother Watch asked Morrisons to apologize for the behavior of their staff, but the company is yet to respond.

VIDEO-The Vaccine Reaction: Long-Term Care Staff Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine

More of the men and women who care for our elder, weaker and most vulnerable are rejecting the COVID vaccine. That’s what the state’s saying about employees of Florida nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Now, state leaders are growing more concerned that employees not wanting the vaccine will hinder state efforts to rebound from the pandemic.  … With seniors accounting for 80 percent of state deaths from the virus, those who live and work in long-term care centers have been the state’s vaccine priority. The problem… most employees in these facilities are choosing not to get the shot.

Supreme Court To Decide If Police Can Enter A Home To Seize Guns Without Warrant~Hold the Line PAC

A new case tests the limits of the “community caretaking exception” to the Fourth Amendment.

EXCERPT FROM THIRD ARTICLE ABOVE:

"The case is Caniglia v. Strom. It originated in 2015 when Cranston, Rhode Island, police paid a "well call" on 68-year-old Edward Caniglia. His wife had been unable to reach him after they had a fight and she was worried that he might be suicidal. So she called the authorities. The police took Caniglia to the hospital, where he was examined by a nurse and a social worker and discharged that same day. Meanwhile, the police entered his home without a warrant while he was gone and seized his two handguns. The present case centers on Caniglia's claim that this warrantless police action violated his Fourth Amendment rights."

The 4th Amendment of the Constitution protects citizens against warrantless searches of their homes. A police officer cannot enter your home unless they have shown a judge that they have probable cause that they will discover specific evidence of a crime. There are “exigent circumstances” exceptions to this right. If a police officer is witnessing an assault or murder in the home, or if the officer sees that the person in the home is in need of “emergency aid” they may enter the home in good judgement. Overall, the 4th Amendment is supposed to protect a citizen’s private home above all other places.

The Supreme Court has just announced that it will hear arguments next month on the case Caniglia v. Strom. The Caniglia v Strom is a case that involves the police untruthfully telling the wife of Mr. Caniglia that her husband had given them permission to seize his guns, and searched the home of Mr. Caniglia without obtaining a warrant. Mr. Caniglia sued for the violation of his 4th Amendment right to privacy and his 2nd Amendment right to keep handguns in the home for self-protection.

The 1st Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the police, and the Supreme Court is going to be reviewing Caniglia v Strom to possibly overrule the lower court’s decision.

Bank of America Sells Out Gun & Ammo Purchasers as Potential Criminals

Bank of America, it turns out, is selling out their customers who bought guns or ammunition to federal authorities 

Bank of America has said it is required by federal law to comply to requests

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Bank of America, it turns out, is selling out their customers who bought guns or ammunition to federal authorities as people who should be investigated for ties to the criminal acts witnessed on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6.

Tucker Carlson, of Fox News, uncovered evidence that Bank of America is turning over the private transaction records of its customers to federal investigators it believes need to be probed for “extremism” or even domestic terrorism. The chilling move by the second-largest corporate bank in America with more than 60 million customers and $2.16 trillion in assets was this:

    1. Customers confirmed as transacting, either through bank account debit card or credit card purchases in Washington, D.C. between 1/5 and 1/6.
    2. Purchases made for Hotel/Airbnb RSVPs in DC, VA, and MD after 1/6.
    3. Any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between 1/7 and their upcoming suspected stay in D.C. area around Inauguration Day.
    4. Airline related purchases since 1/6.

Did you notice No. 3? Bank of America is vocally antigun, but this is crossing into secret lists, big brother, sci-fi truth-is-stranger-than-fiction territory. The bank’s criteria included any purchase at a gun store, but not just guns. If someone bought a t-shirt, baseball hat, or even a trigger lock, that flagged their account for “review.”

Who Told Who?

Carlson reported that Bank of America identified 211 people and turned that information over to investigators without notifying those customers their private financial transaction data was being shared without their consent. Federal authorities interviewed at least one person, and that individual was cleared of any wrongdoing.

Bank of America dodged Carlson when confronted with the allegations it was singling out customers who made a purchase at a gun store. They said, “We don’t comment on our communications with law enforcement. All banks have responsibilities under federal law to cooperate with law enforcement inquiries in full compliance with the law.”

However, “compliance with the law” here is questionable at best. Bank of America didn’t say that the FBI subpoenaed the information. They only said they “cooperated.” Carlson pointed out that banks are allowed under 12 U.S.C. 3403 to provide information that “may be relevant to a possible violation of any statute or regulation.”

In Bank of America’s estimation, visiting a gun store and buying any product, much less a firearm that is protected by the Second Amendment, is suspicious enough to put their customers on a secret watch list without their knowledge.

The New York Post interviewed New York City’s former top cop who blasted the decision to hand over private financial data.

“That’s just not a good reason to hand over private information. If that’s the way they do business now, then the people of this country really have something to worry about,” said Bernard Kerik, a security consultant who headed the NYPD in 2000 and 2001.

Another former law enforcement official called the move “a fishing expedition.”

In a follow-up, Fox News’ Mark Steyn interviewed former federal prosecutor Francey Hakes, who noted Bank of America’s response was peculiarly-absent of any mention of “search warrants, court orders or subpoenas…” Hakes noted that the Fourth Amendment protects against searches that aren’t “particularized” or when a judge signs off an order to search the records of a specific individual based on evidence.

“Financial information is highly private in this country and is given heightened protection,” she added.

Telegraphed Move

So far, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo haven’t responded if they’ve conducted similar internal search efforts of customer information. Yet, this follows an antigun animus by Bank of America. In 2018, Bank of America announced they would end financial relationships with manufacturers of modern sporting rifles, which they erroneously called “military-style rifle.” The move followed a similar announcement by Citigroup.

Delving into private transactions and using big banks to approve of purchases isn’t a new idea. In fact, this is the fulfillment of New York Times’ columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin’s call for such action and who proposed the notion in 2017 and 2018. It was later parroted by Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke as a potential gun control program.

It also shouldn’t be surprising that big banks with antigun agendas are emboldened to violate their customers’ privacy, turn them out and label them as “extremist” and “domestic terrorist.” The Biden administration yanked the publication of the “Fair Access” banking rule by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. That gave banks the green light to continue to openly discriminate against firearm business, which is just privatization with a wink-and-nod to continue the illegal Operation Choke Point that was begun under the Obama administration.

It is no longer the Bank of America. It is a gun control cabal working to undermine American freedoms, label gun owners as criminals, and use their customers’ money and information as the tools to get it done. Welcome to the Bank of Gun Control America.

Report: Bank of America Gave Feds Customer Data After Capitol Riot — for No Good Reason

Tucker Carlson accuses Bank of America of treating customers 'like Al Qaeda' as he reveals it gave the FBI details of every customer who spent money on hotels or AirBnb, flights and guns in DC around time of the Capitol siege

Bank of America has said it is required by federal law to comply to requests

Apple refused to give the FBI encrypted data from a phone belonging to Muslim terrorists who killed 14 people. Google refused to do artificial intelligence work for the Pentagon but then did work helping China censor its own people. But Bank of America (BoA) had no problem handing over the private information of innocent customers — to federal investigators on a witch hunt for Capitol riot “right-wing extremists.”

Well, it’s plain what side corporate America is now on: everyone but yours.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson reported on the BoA story last night, saying:

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” has exclusively obtained evidence that Bank of America, the second-largest bank in the country with more than 60 million customers, is actively but secretly engaged in the hunt for extremists in cooperation with the government. Bank of America is, without the knowledge or the consent of its customers, sharing private information with federal law enforcement agencies. Bank of America effectively is acting as an intelligence agency, but they’re not telling you about it.

In the days after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, Bank of America went through its own customers’ financial and transaction records. These were the private records of Americans who had committed no crime; people who, as far as we know, had absolutely nothing to do with what happened at the Capitol. But at the request of federal investigators, Bank of America searched its databases looking for people who fit a specific profile.

Here’s what that profile was: “1. Customers confirmed as transacting, either through bank account debit card or credit card purchases in Washington, D.C. between 1/5 and 1/6. 2. Purchases made for Hotel/Airbnb RSVPs in DC, VA, and MD after 1/6. 3. Any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between 1/7 and their upcoming suspected stay in D.C. area around Inauguration Day. 4. Airline related purchases since 1/6.”

The first thing you should notice about that profile is that it’s remarkably broad. Any purchases of anything in Washington, D.C.; any overnight stay anywhere in an area spanning three jurisdictions and hundreds of miles; any purchase not just of legal firearms, but anything bought from a “weapons-related merchant,” T-shirts included; and any airline-related purchases — not just flights to Washington, but flights to anywhere, from Omaha to Thailand. That is an absurdly wide net.

Bank of America identified a total of 211 customers who met these “thresholds of interest.” At that point, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” has learned, Bank of America turned over the results of its internal scan to federal authorities, apparently without notifying the customers who were being spied upon. Federal investigators then interviewed at least one of these unsuspecting people. That person, we’ve learned, hadn’t done anything wrong and was cleared.

BoA claims it was just complying with the law, but Carlson asserts (video below) that this isn’t true. The bank had a choice — and unlike Apple, it chose not to resist the feds’ request.

As with Apple, however, BoA decided to take the anti-American position. Speaking volumes is that in Apple’s case, the FBI was merely asking for information from the phone of a terrorist, Syed Rizwan Farook, who’d already committed a heinous crime; he was one of two people who perpetrated the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, which claimed 14 lives.

In contrast, the BoA customers are completely innocent; their only crime is fitting the wrong profile. Don’t misunderstand, profiling is a legitimate criminological method — but it’s only legitimately used when the ends are valid.

In this case, being advanced is “Reichstag fire” opportunism. The Capitol riot was not an “insurrection” as was CHAZ, the forcible, armed, left-wing takeover of Seattle streets last year. It was not racially driven (“white supremacism”) as is Black Lives Matter. It wasn’t authored by forces seeking the government’s overthrow, as is Antifa. Its members didn’t wear masks à la Antifa, either.

The rioters also weren’t part of an organized destabilization effort responsible for approximately 600 riots, often involving looting and arson, during the last year. That would be, again, Antifa and BLM.

Of course, if the government had put the kind of effort into combating Antifa/BLM that they’re putting into the current witch hunt, we wouldn’t have had 600 violent riots, thousands of destroyed businesses, and the resulting deaths.

Antifa/BLM action is an actual threat while the “threat” of white supremacists, a vanishingly small group, is an illusion. But they do share a commonality: Antifa/BLM and white supremacists both are used to advance leftist power — by serving as, respectively, shock troops and scapegoats.

NY Democrat Citizen Disarmament Zealot Proposes Covid ‘Detention Centers’

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Covid camps? Put disease ‘carriers’ in DETENTION CENTERS, proposed New York law suggests,” RT News reported Saturday. “Authored by a Democratic member of the New York State Assembly N. Nick Perry, Bill A416 calls for the ‘removal and/or detention’ of individuals who are identified as a ‘case, contact or carrier’ of a contagious disease.”

RT News? Aren’t they Russian? Doesn’t that mean they have an anti-American agenda, and anyone citing them is being their dupe?

My experience with them has been they’re just as good – if not better – than our homegrown DSM (Duranty/Streicher Media). They gave a forum for friend and colleague, the late Mike Vanderboegh, and me to have our say on the subjects of the militia keeping tyranny in check, and on open carry (even if they did mispronounce my name), subjects no domestic establishment outlet want to present unless they control the narrative.

Still, some will no doubt cling to the logical fallacy of discrediting the report based on who the messenger is, so don’t listen to them; listen to the language of the bill itself:

“Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a  case,  contact or carrier,  or suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor, after consultation with the commissioner,  may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor or his or her delegee,  including,  but not limited to the commissioner or the heads of local health departments, may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order,  identifying such persons either by name or by a  reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained. Such  person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate  facility  or  premises  designated by the governor or his or her delegee…”

This being New York, determinations will be made by the same “authorities” who arbitrarily restrict some while the powerful celebrate; whose policies place some populations, such as the elderly in nursing homes, at extreme risk while releasing recidivist criminals back into the general population out of political “concern” for their safety; and who prioritize and value addicts over the productive.

It’s not like Americans aren’t starting to question the hell out of what their governments are telling them, especially when they see Covid “death counts” inflated when people testing for the virus pass on from other causes; when the accuracy of the tests themselves are in question; when reports of severe medical reactions are becoming more frequent; and when we see healthcare professionals – hardly doctrinaire “anti-vaxxers” –  are refusing the vaccine.

Clearly, there are plenty of questions that can’t be answered because no one really knows yet. But here is what can be answered, with certainty, if this obscene, tyrannical, and anti-American New York bill becomes enforceable law: Those are ultimately enforced at gunpoint. That means if you don’t want to go, they’re not giving you a choice. Likewise, if you want to leave the facility, expect armed “camp guards” to say “No.”

“Fortunately,” for New York, both Gov. Cuomo and Assemblyman Perry are both big advocates of what the totalitarian-minded like to call “commonsense gun safety laws.” Particularly, as Perry explains, against “weapons of mass destruction” (unless in the hands of enforcers, of course).

Any questions about who rules whom? Everyone is clear on where the raised fist originated?

Just make sure you wear your masks and practice social distancing when the “conductor” yells “All aboard!” to take you to the “detention center”!

America’s Frontline Doctors Unveil Petition to Protect Medical Privacy and Prevent Mandates in COVID-19 Vaccine Policymaking

Effort attracting support from Americans concerned about the safe administration of new experimental vaccines and possible mandates

Los Angeles, CA – With the approval of experimental COVID-19 vaccines raising new questions about safety, transparency, and unnecessary mandates, America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) today announced the launch of its latest sound-science initiative, an online petition known as Stop Medical Discrimination. The petition, which is already earning support from more than 40,000 concerned Americans, urges policymakers and the private sector to guard against mandates that restrict freedom and infringe on patient privacy and choice.

The petition reads, “All people deserve medical privacy and equality. … People should never be pressured to comply with taking an experimental vaccine. This is becoming a very real danger. The coercion can be implemented by government regulation or through policy directives by large corporations, private entities, including airlines, employers, schools, and other institutions. Such mandates are unethical and would be an assault on Americans’ medical privacy.” AFLDS hopes to present the signatures to policymakers and private entities at a later date. So-called “vaccine passports,” test-and-trace systems, race-based vaccination directives, and similar public health requirements run afoul of medical ethics and present real threats to personal privacy as well as freedom of movement and association.

Dr. Simone Gold, Founder of AFLDS, said, “The development of a vaccine should be lauded, but Americans should not blindly accept an experimental drug for an illness with a 99.7% survival rate. America’s Frontline Doctors is calling for greater transparency for concerned citizens and better data for policymakers before we embark on the largest experimental vaccination program in history. We are offering this public petition in the spirit of Jonas Salk, a pioneer in medical technology who adhered to the highest scientific and ethical standards and saved millions of lives as a result.”

Dr. Gold has been particularly outspoken against lockdown orders that are having a significant health and economic impact on millions of Americans. AFLDS was also critical of federal health experts’ decision to relegate those 65 and over to lower priority for vaccine distribution until the CDC advisory committee’s dramatic reversal on Sunday.

“We cannot so readily cast aside individual civil liberties and doctor-patient decision-making to serve the agenda of any single group, including politicians, the media, and corporations. Instead, we must provide more information about these drugs to the public and ensure our administration of the vaccines is based on science. Americans have faced the consequences of harsh government mandates throughout this pandemic. Regulators have consistently used conflicting or inaccurate information as justifications for their mandates. AFLDS encourages all Americans who care about freedom from coercion to sign our petition today,” said Gold.

How Do I Get HCQ (HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE)? – America's Frontline Doctors

SEE: https://www.americasfrontlinedoctors.com/how-do-i-get-hcq;

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

Five Steps To Obtain Hydroxychloroquine:

  1. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) can only be obtained by prescription in the USA. If you live in a green state, your own physician can prescribe it and your own pharmacy can fill it. However, we know this often does not happen. You can attempt that or you can use our telemedicine service, which is available in all 50 states to anyone with a USA address.

  2. AFLDS physicians are available via telemedicine. This is a short consultation via the internet with a physician who is HCQ-knowledgeable. Our physicians know that HCQ and Zinc are effective both prophylactically and when used early. The telemedicine physician will review your history and almost all patients can safely take the medications.

  3. Click on the Contact A Physician button. Fill out the form and pay $90. The physician will call you typically within 24 hours, occasionally 48 hours. Please keep your phone with you.

  4. If you miss the call, you can either wait for the second call (which will come), send an email to [email protected], or call their customer service at (855) 503-2657.

  5. After your consultation, the physician will order the medication from the pharmacy, which will overnight deliver the prescription to you. Depending upon the time the order was placed, it will arrive the next day or within one additional day. We have chosen this method because many pharmacies are inappropriately refusing to fill prescriptions. The pharmacy will text or call you within 1-3 hours of your physician consultation. If you have questions for the pharmacy, please contact Ravkoo Pharmacy: 863-875-5700.

 
 

Signs Suggest Walmart to Turn Over Customer 4473 Gun Records to ATF

Opinion
Editors Note: Despite the negative outcome for customers the action of turning over FFL documents, in this case, customer 4473 forms from a firearms retailer that is closing is legally required under current federal law.

Signs Suggest Walmart to Turn Over Customer's 4473 Records to ATF
Signs Suggest Walmart to Turn Over Customer's 4473 Records to ATF

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Walmart could be transferring an estimated 20% of customer sales records for firearms purchases to the ATF. This information comes to AmmoLand News from a recently leaked internal ATF conference call.

A former ATF Assistant Director confirmed to AmmoLand News that Walmart plans to discontinue gun sales at 500 of its stores nationwide. As of January, of this year, 2388 Walmart stores sell guns.

Options

When an FFL closes a location the ATF allows the transfer of documents to a “successor” federal firearm licensed dealer. Walmart could transfer the 4473 records from those stores that are ending sales to another regional store location that still sells firearms.

If Walmart chose to, they could shield their customer's information from direct access by ATF.

Instead, Walmart appears to be handing over, for locations ending gun sales, the customer's records to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms & Explosives (ATF).

Internal ATF communications appear to show the massive retailer's internal “compliance manager” is working with the ATF to transfer their records to the federal agency. The ATF will then scan all received documents into a searchable database. In recent years the ATF has started using high-speed scanners to catalog out of business FFL’s records into a searchable database using optical character recognition software (OCR).

Federal law prohibits the creation of a national gun registry. Yet, this appears to be what is happening, not only with Walmart’s records but all other out of business FFL records that are turned over at the close of business.

18 USC. Section 926(a)(3) states that:

No such rule or regulation prescribed after the date of the enactment of the Firearms Owners’ Protection Act may require that records required to be maintained under this chapter or any portion of the contents of such records, be recorded at or transferred to a facility owned, managed, or controlled by the United States or any State or any political subdivision thereof, nor that any system of registration of firearms, firearms owners, or firearms transactions or dispositions be established.

Following the Law

The ATF is permitted by statute to collect “out of business records” from FFLs under 18 USC. Section 923(g)(4) (Where a firearms or ammunition business is discontinued [and is] absolute, such records shall be delivered within thirty days after the business discontinuance to the Attorney General). It is only recently that the ATF has started scanning the records into a searchable database. For many years, FFLs would ship their out of business records to the ATF’s “Out-Of-Business Records Center” in Martinsburg, WV. The records sat undisturbed unless there was something specific ATF needed to go looking for (such as tracing a firearm).

ATF National Tracing Center Division Flyer

AmmoLand News' internal sources provided evidence that the ATF has been employing third-party contractors with high-speed scanners to digitize these records, perform “optical character recognition” (OCR) on them, and transform the documents into a searchable database.

In other words, the ATF has or is in the process of creating a searchable registry of all firearms sold through now-defunct gun dealers.

By using this technology, the ATF could search on a person’s name and pull every gun purchase by the person from any dealer that has gone out of business. Soon this will include the 500 Walmart locations that appear to be in the process of turning over their records to the ATF. The ATF does not view this list as a de facto registry even though serial numbers, names, and addresses are searchable. The ATF’s recent changes to the 4473, which puts the firearms information on the front page, could speed up the creation of the database. This change will increase the speed a document can be indexed and retrieved for information.

Gun Owners of America (GOA) became aware of the scanning practice in May of this year, 2020. The GOA submitted an FOIA request to the ATF to determine what information is searchable, the policies surrounding the scanning of documents, and the current number of searchable records. The ATF has not responded to the FOIA request, leaving us wondering what the agency is hiding.

AmmoLand News reached out to Gun Owners of America and spoke to legislative counsel, Michael Hammond.

“The McClure-Volkmer Amendments prevents the federal government from keeping a gun registry,” Hammond told AmmoLand. “We have a federal agency that is supposed to be enforcing the law but is actually breaking the law. What type of country do we live in where law enforcement agencies are allowed to break the law?”

AmmoLand reached out to Walmart for comment, but the retail giant did not return AmmoLand News’ calls.

On Dec. 2, 2020, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) released the first images of the government’s proposed COVID-19 vaccination record card and vaccination kits that include a needle, syringe, alcohol wipes and a mask. The vaccination card, which will be issued to everyone who gets a COVID-19 vaccine, will be used by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to track who gets vaccinated with the first dose of the vaccine.1 2 3 4 5 6

Recipients of the vaccines will be asked to provide their cell phone numbers so pubic health officials can contact vaccinated persons by text and remind them to return to receive a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine three or four weeks later. The two doses of Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA COVID-19 (BNT162b2) need to be given 21 days apart. Moderna’s mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccine requires two doses to be given 28 days apart.1 2 4 5 6 7

Each dose of COVID-19 vaccine a person receives will be reported to the CDC.1 2

COVID-19 Vaccination Card Contains Personal Medical Information

“Everyone will be issued a written card that they can put in their wallet that will tell them what they had and when their next dose is due,” said Kelly Moore, MD, MPH, associate director of the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) of Saint Paul, Minnesota. “Everyone’s going to get that.”1 2 6

Each card, written in English and Spanish, will record the first and last name of the person receiving the vaccine, along with their date of birth, medical information, the dates in which they were vaccinated and the name of who performed the vaccination and where. It will provide spaces to record the name of the vaccine given and the name of its manufacturer. It will also have spaces that could be used to record additional booster shots in the future.3 6

A “Draconian Process” to “Capture Everybody”

“We’ve set up everything [in] a draconian process, where when we sent out the ancillary kits which have needles and syringes, we’ve included paper cards to be filled out and given to the individuals, reminding them of their next vaccine due date,” said U.S. Army Gen. Gustave Perna, chief operating officer of the U.S. government’s Operation Warp Speed (OWS) program tasked with facilitating development of COVID-19 vaccines.3

“We do know that pharmacies such as CVS and Walgreens have established very elaborate tracking systems to set up appointments, notify people when their second shots are required,” Gen. Perna said. “And we’re doing our best to capture everybody to ensure that they get their second dose.3

Dr. Gounder Recommends Waiting on COVID Vaccine if You’ve Had a History of Severe Allergic Reaction

You would think that [the severe allergic reactions to the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine] would have come up in all of the phase trials already with those who were getting the vaccine, because that’s such a noticeable reaction. Well, I think it’s important to understand that when we do these Phase 3 clinical studies, we are actually intentionally excluding a certain population, so people who’ve had severe side effects… pregnant women, children, they were not included in these Phase 3 clinical trials. And, in fact, the way the vaccine is approved for use in the U.K., they are recommending, even prior to these allergic reactions happening, they were recommending against giving them to people who’ve had severe allergic reactions.


POLL: 69 PERCENT OF AMERICANS WORRIED FAST-TRACKED COVID-19 VACCINES WON’T BE SAFE

SEE: https://thevaccinereaction.org/2020/08/poll-69-percent-of-americans-worried-about-safety-of-fast-tracked-covid-19-vaccine/;

Numerous polls have been conducted during the last few months asking Americans if they would get a COVID-19 vaccine were it approved by the U.S. government and offered to the public. Polls in April-May 2020 showed that about half or more of those surveyed said they would get the vaccine. More recent polling, however, has shown a decline in the percentage of positive responses.

For example, in a nationwide poll of 1,000 adults taken by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research at the University of Chicago during May 14-18, 49 percent of respondents said they would get vaccinated, while 20 percent said they would not. Thirty-one percent said they were unsure.1 Previous polls conducted in April and early May by YouGov/Yahoo! News, Morning Consult, and ABC News/Ipsos had registered even higher favorable responses for the percentage of Americans intending to get COVID-19 vaccines when they are licensed.

Only 43 Percent of Americans Intend to Get COVID-19 Vaccine Immediately

The April/May 2020 YouGov/Yahoo! News poll found that 55 percent of people surveyed said they would get a COVID-19 vaccine once it is licensed, while 19 percent said they would not and 26 percent said they were not sure. In the poll by Morning Consult, 64 percent said they would get the vaccine, compared to 14 percent who said they would not and 22 percent who said they were unsure.2 3 4

Of those polled by ABC News/Ipsos, 74 percent said they were either “somewhat” or “very likely” to get the vaccine, while 25 percent said they were either “not so likely” or “not likely at all” to get it.2 3 4

On July 26-27, a poll of 1,000 people conducted by WebMD showed that only 43 percent would get the vaccine during the first year it is available. An additional 30 percent said they were not sure and 28 percent said they would not get the vaccine.5 According to WebMD:

Of those who expressed uncertainty about getting vaccinated, 78% cited concerns about potential side effects, with 15% saying they believed the vaccine would not be effective in protecting against the virus.5

Worries About COVID-19 Vaccine Fast Tracking and Side Effects Main Reason for Hesitancy

Side effects, including serious (Grade 3) ones, have been reported during human clinical trials on experimental COVID-19 vaccines being developed by several leading pharmaceutical companies, including Moderna, Inc., CanSino Biologics, Inc., and a joint venture between Pfizer, Inc. and BioNTech SE.6

The latest poll conducted by YouGov/Yahoo! News during July 28-30 found that only 41 percent of those surveyed said they would get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available, while 27 percent they would not and 32 said they were not sure.7 8

Data journalist Hoang Nguyen of YouGov said that 69 percent of those surveyed are “concerned about the safety of a vaccine being fast-tracked through the approval process.” Among those who do not trust health authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “that level of concern soars to 81 percent,” Nguyen noted.7

Natalie Dean, PhD, assistant professor of biostatistics at the University of Florida, said:

I’m a vaccine researcher, and even I would place myself in the ‘not sure’ bucket. What we have right now is a collection of animal data, immune response data and safety data based on early trials and from similar vaccines for other diseases. The evidence that would convince me to get a COVID-19 vaccine, or to recommend that my loved ones get vaccinated, does not yet exist.8

TEXAS LAWMAKERS SUE GOVERNOR ABBOTT OVER COVID TRACING CONTRACT

BY KELLY HOLT

SEE: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/36636-texas-lawmakers-sue-governor-over-covid-tracing-contract;

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

When Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) served as the Lone Star State’s Attorney General, he was famous for having given this description of his job: “I wake up in the morning, put on my suit, and sue the Federal government.” Now, he’s on the receiving end of that deal with lawsuits and challenges piling on. Five Texas lawmakers have filed suit against him for deciding to ink a $295 million deal for a statewide COVID-19 contact-tracing effort with Frisco-based MTX, a company some claim to be untested and not adequate to the task. The contract is supposed to aid the state in tracking COVID cases, along with everyone who’s been in contact with someone diagnosed with the virus.

According to the Texas Tribune for August 5, the lawsuit filed on Monday by “Republican state Reps. Mike Lang, Kyle Biedermann, Bill Zedler, Steve Toth, and state Senator Bob Hall asked a Travis County judge to void the controversial contract, arguing that both the selection process and length of the contract were improper.” Arlington attorney Warren Norred represents the plaintiffs.

The lawmakers added, “The request for proposal for the contract was inadequate, the contract bid process was a sham, and the contract impermissibly exceeds two years.”

Indeed, the bid request was not posted publicly, had a short window of response, and was sent to only a select group of potential vendors. No Texan or his state representative was given a chance to know about the deal, much less respond to it. It was a done deal before anybody knew it.

The Houston Chronicle even reported that MTX workers were spending hours doing little or no work, received confusing or erroneous instructions, and often could not give people the advice they needed.

According to the Tribune, the suit argues that “The Texas Constitution requires a separation of powers, and that separation leaves policy-making decisions with the Texas Legislature. The Governor cannot establish new state policy, issue a $295M contract to [implement] that policy, and ignore or suspend state statutes just by claiming ‘It’s a disaster.’”

“Using a serious but manageable disease threat which some refer to as ‘the new normal’ and authorizing multiple-year contracts entrenching a new bureaucracy and effective government program is not an appropriate use of the Governor’s power.” The lawmakers added that Abbott could have called a special session to allow lawmakers to weigh in.

The Texas Legislature meets every other year, and is currently between sessions, but the Governor can indeed call lawmakers back for a “special session” after the regular session ends. Since Abbott didn’t do that, Texans were immediately up in arms, as the move was just one more thing rankling them about Abbott’s recent extra-constitutional actions.

Abbott was criticized for the unconstitutional shutdown and mask orders in Texas that hampered personal freedom and threw the state’s economy under the bus, causing untold hardships. Abbott was challenged when Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther (also defended by Norred) defied shutdown “orders” and refused to close her small business. Abbott backpedaled and publicly defended Luther’s right to run her business, even though he’s the one who ordered her to shut it down in the first place. 

The real question is whether Abbott even has such authority. The Austin American Statesman reported that in May, Representative Zedler “asked the Texas Supreme Court to strike down the law that gave Abbott broad powers to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, arguing they were unconstitutional.”

“In July, the Texas Supreme Court dismissed that petition and said it lacked jurisdiction to consider it.”

“Texas Supreme Court Justice John Devine, who agreed that the court lacked jurisdiction, did include comments in the July ruling that were critical of Abbott’s use of executive orders to close businesses or limit their ability to operate as part of a strategy to reduce exposure to a dangerous virus.’” 

“In these most atypical times, Texans’ constitutional rights have taken a back seat to a series of executive orders attempting to unilaterally quell the spread of the novel coronavirus,” Devine wrote. “That can’t be right.”

Former Denton County Republican Party activist Kay Francis agrees. She reports the governor’s use of executive orders has jolted folks who generally never question the state’s authority. “For the first time, people are aghast that their governor would do this, and can’t believe he’s issuing these edicts. These are not laws.”

By the way, the $295 million required to fund the move isn’t Texas money, but federal funds. Some remember that Abbott promised to throw off federal shackles when he campaigned for his job. Early in his reign as Texas governor, one of his top agenda items was Texas’ passage of an application for an Article V convention. Abbott defended Texas’ participation in the highly suspicious Article V movement by rightfully stating that the federal government had gone way off the rails, and needed to be reigned in. However, he wrongly stated that the Article V convention was Texas’ only hope to throw off Washington’s control.

A better idea would be for Texas to quit taking Washington’s money in the first place in order to get out from under its thumb. Critics of such a convention have noted that it’s tough for a state to reconcile the need for a constitutional convention to stop federal spending while taking a huge sum from Washington, and sometimes using that money to violate people’s guaranteed rights.

According to the Tribune, Abbott said he doesn’t expect the lawsuit to be successful.

“I’ve been sued too many times for me to count. Every lawsuit that’s been filed against me ... I either won in court or it has been dismissed.... This lawsuit will meet that exact same fate.” What hubris.

Some say that Abbott is burning through political capital, not understanding that Texans are getting fed up. For many people, the Constitution still matters. They remember Jefferson’s words that “taking a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power.” In Abbott’s case, the boundless field is not his to claim.

Some wonder where Texas’ reputation for fierce independence went. It’s certainly dead in Austin, it seems. It would be difficult to imagine the defenders at the Alamo maintaining social distancing while they fought for independence.

 

GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDA MACHINE TESTS “PERSUASIVE MESSAGES FOR COVID-19 VACCINE UPTAKE

Bill Gates

The global elite is using every trick in the propaganda book to take control over all biological units on earth, that is, your bodies. Make no mistake that our own government isn’t in on this plan, as they are driving the public “messaging” to get people to comply. ⁃ TN Editor

The US Federal government in collaboration with Yale University held clinical trials to determine what the best messaging would be to persuade Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it is ready. The news of this study does show an interest in finding the best way to persuade people into an ideal decision for the Federal government, and likely vaccine makers, and it also shows that a mandatory vaccine campaign may still be the plan B down the road, as opposed to plan A.

The official title of the trial is, “Persuasive Messages for COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake: a Randomized Controlled Trial, Part 1.”

According to the brief summary for trial:

This study tests different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available. Participants are randomized to 1 of 12 arms, with one control arm and one baseline arm. We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available between the 10 intervention arms to the 2 control arms.

Study participants are recruited online by Lucid, which matches census based sampling in online recruitment.

The study essentially looks at the best possible messaging that can be used on Americans, ranging from expressing vaccine benefits, to using messaging about economic impact, making someone feel guilty or embarrassed for not taking the vaccine, and so on.

The study looked at around 4000 participants aged 18 years and up, all of whom had to be US residents of course.

The various ‘arms’ used in the study when it came to messaging were as follows:

Other: Control message
Other: Baseline message
Other: Personal freedom message
Other: Economic freedom message
Other: Self-interest message
Other: Community interest message
Other: Economic benefit message
Other: Guilt message
Other: Embarrassment message
Other: Anger message
Other: Trust in science message
Other: Not bravery message

Interestingly, the study also looked at various social elements involved in vaccination, see below:

Primary Outcome Measures  :

  1. Intention to get COVID-19 vaccine [ Time Frame: Immediately after intervention, in the same survey in which the intervention message is provided ]
    This is a self reported measure, immediately after the intervention message, of the likelihood of getting a COVID-19 vaccination within 3 months and then 6 months of it becoming available. During analysis, responses among those assigned to different intervention messages will be compared to those in the control group.

Secondary Outcome Measures  :

  1. Vaccine confidence scale [ Time Frame: Immediately after intervention, in the same survey in which the intervention message is provided ]
    This is a validated scale. This scale will be used to assess the impact of the messages on vaccine confidence. (Outcome assessed only for the half of the sample that answers these items post-treatment)
  2. Persuade others item [ Time Frame: Immediately after intervention, in the same survey in which the intervention message is provided ]
    This is a measure of a willingness to persuade others to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
  3. Fear of those who have not been vaccinated [ Time Frame: Immediately after intervention, in the same survey in which the intervention message is provided ]
    This is a measure of a comfort with an unvaccinated individual visiting an elderly friend after a vaccine becomes available
  4. Social judgment of those who do not vaccinate [ Time Frame: Immediately after intervention, in the same survey in which the intervention message is provided ]
    This is a scale composed of 4 items measuring the trustworthiness, selfishness, likeableness, and competence of those who choose not to get vaccinated after a vaccine becomes available.

Why This Matters: As more credible information about vaccinations and their associated dangers circles the internet and informs people, their choice to not vaccinate in certain situations is increasing. As noted by The World Health Organization, even doctors are starting to question and have a lack of trust in vaccines. Because of all of this, I believe pharmaceutical companies now have to work harder to convince people to get vaccines so their profits can stay where they are at. We are seeing the power of free and open media. You can likely guess you would not see a story like this nor honest coverage about vaccines in mainstream media.

BILL GATES AGAIN DENIES VACCINES ARE COVER FOR GLOBAL MICRO-CHIPPING PROGRAM

“Very incorrect things that are very titillating…can spread much faster than the truth”

Video: Bill Gates Again Denies Vaccines Are Cover For Global Microchipping Program

BY STEVE WATSON

With millions of people globally sharing information and videos purporting that Bill Gates’ obsession with vaccinations is a cover for a global microchipping program, the billionaire Microsoft founder again felt the need to deny the allegations, while pushing for more censorship of social media posts.

In an exchange between Gates and CNBC Tuesday, the issue was raised by interviewer Andrew Ross Sorkin, prompting Gates to deny that coronavirus vaccines will be used to implant tracking devices in humans.

“Very incorrect things that are very titillating…can spread much faster than the truth on social media, and we’ve always seen that with vaccines….social media can make that even worse…” Gates proclaimed.

“These social media companies can see what is being said on their platform and take things that are absolutely wrong and remove those things from the platform.” he added.

“How you divide that up, and draw that line…these are complex issues. It has been a spreader of lot of things…and how do you strike a balance?” Gates continued.

Gates also questioned whether it was “appropriate” that Facebook does not prevent people sharing links and information via its Whatsapp messaging platform.

Gates’ comments were recorded as BBC News claimed that ‘vaccine passports’ via Gates-funded digital tattoos could become a necessary part of travel in the post-COVID world.

BBC pushes Gates’ vaccine tattoos as a condition of travel, Google comes up with its own tech tattoo — SkinMarks

The BBC report stated that “This technology already exists and has been tried on live animals and human cadaver skin, said researcher Ana Jaklenec at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Their method uses micro-needle patches that can deliver both the vaccine and a squirt of an invisible ink under the person’s skin, storing the vaccination record.”

Reports of the Gates-backed tattoos have been circling since March, being downplayed or outright lied about.

Embedding a permanent vaccine health record tattoo into the skin of people is essentially the same thing as ‘microchipping’, yet Gates and those falling into line behind him are using Orwellian semantics to claim the idea is a ‘conspiracy theory’.

Alex Jones breaks down Bill Gates admitting in his own words to the damage his vaccines cause, and the build up of telling the public the pandemic plan for years.

INTRODUCING THE UNITED MEDICAL FREEDOM PAC

Introducing the United Medical Freedom Super PAC

SEE: https://medicalfreedompac.com

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:
By United Medical Freedom Super PAC
July 2, 2020
United Medical Freedom Super PAC

Unless we put Medical Freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic… The Constitution of the Republic should make special provisions for Medical Freedom as well as Religious Freedom.”

DR. BENJAMIN RUSH, George Washington’s personal doctor and a signer of the Declaration of Independence

What does freedom mean to you? The right to free speech? The right to bear arms? The right to worship as you see fit? At its core, freedom means autonomy. The right to decide how you want to live your life. The right to make decisions for you and your family without interference from governments, armies, or corporate interests. 

That includes the freedom of medical choice. Can you imagine a world in which the government told you what you could and couldn’t eat? What if there was a mandate telling you how much you needed to exercise or when you should go to bed? The government has absolutely NO BUSINESS meddling in our health and medical choices. 

And yet that’s exactly what they’re trying to do. 

Whether you support medical interventions like vaccines and chemotherapy, we all share a common belief that American citizens should never be forced to undergo treatment against their will. But corrupt politicians – and the corporate interests that sponsor them – have been actively fighting to strip you of your fundamental rights. 

From medical kidnapping to mandatory vaccinations and stay at home orders, our public servants have betrayed us. Those meant to serve the people have taken it upon themselves to strip us of the very freedoms that define us. 

It’s time to fight back. 

That’s why we created the United Medical Freedom Super PAC “UMFSP”. We believe that it’s time to end the totalitarian reign of fascist leaders and authoritarian mandates. It’s time that our government started working FOR the people instead of against them. And it’s time that the politicians in the pocket of Big Pharma are kicked out of office. 

We created the UMFSP to educate, empower, and emancipate the American people. We want you to know exactly which elected officials are working in the service of freedom… and which officials have been corrupted by greed. By joining our cause, you can become a warrior on the front lines in the battle for freedom. You can protect your children and your children’s children from the dictatorial rule of those who oppose freedom and the American way. 

The UMFSP has 7 specific objectives, and YOU can be among the first to join our righteous crusade for liberty. For too long, we have been deceived and manipulated. It’s time that we wake up, wise up, and rise up against this tyranny so that no American will ever again live in fear of their own government. 

The following list represents the specific ways that we, working as a united front, can make a difference. 

Censorship

In today’s world, information is more accessible than ever before. Unfortunately, misinformation can be spread just as quickly (if not moreso) than the truth. Major media outlets, social platforms, and targeted advertising have been mouthpieces for the propaganda of corporate interests and corrupt politicians. 

For too long, major media outlets have oppressed one of the core values on which this country was founded: freedom of speech. Those who speak out against untested vaccines, corruption in our government, and pay-to-play chemotherapy have been labeled as “conspiracy theorists” and “quacks” and “fake news.”

Freedom of speech is one of the fundamental rights upon which this country was founded. And yet, virtually every mainstream outlet for exchanging information has become so biased that the truth is now hidden, “debunked,” or flat-out deleted. We need to end this assault on our freedoms and support platforms, representatives, and legislation that supports the right of every American to hear the TRUTH. 

On our own, we have very little power against such massive media influence. But together, can overcome this push toward medical tyranny and domination over the people. We believe that we can restore this great Republic.

Vaccines

No matter what your personal decision is regarding vaccines, we believe that every American has the constitutional and God-given right to choose what we put into our bodies. But the medical mafia, through bribery and lies, has ushered in an age where that choice is no longer ours to make. 

It feels like we’re slowly slipping towards a dystopian nightmare in which a tyrannical medical industry decides what information is allowed and what isn’t. Questioning the industry is not allowed. If you’re hesitant to inject your newborn with dozens of viruses and harmful adjuvants before their first birthday, you’re crazy. Even suggesting that the companies developing these vaccines may not have our best interests in mind will leave you branded a menace to society.

Federal agencies are working vigorously on a propaganda campaign designed for one purpose: to increase vaccine administration at any cost. They’re accomplishing this by exaggerating and exploiting a crisis, inciting public outrage, tracking opponents, and controlling the media.

Simply take a look at the National Adult Immunization Plan (NAIP), which was published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS oversees the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Each of these operating divisions are essentially a revolving door for the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries.

Not only are they heavily influenced by money from these industries, but their agents are often former industry employees, receiving high-level jobs in the private sector once their public service has ended, or both. In fact, it’s so convoluted that the private companies who manufacture vaccines are no longer liable for proper testing or any injuries caused by their products.

We will also provide access to important information from experts like Dr. Judy Mikovitz, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., all of whom are experts on vaccine safety and medical freedom. These people have been actively censored in the media because their message interferes with the interests of Big Pharma. We want to help spread their message of truth for all to hear. 

We believe that no free American should be forced to inject themselves or their children with ANY drug against their will. When it comes to vaccine mandates, the UMFSP will work tirelessly to support candidates, legislation, and activist groups that will defend our right to medical freedom.

Sheriffs

No law truly matters if it is not enforced. All too often, it falls on local law enforcement to uphold totalitarian mandates like forced vaccination, court-ordered chemotherapy, or social distancing guidelines. These officials are the true muscle behind these laws and illegal orders. The way that they respond can mean the difference between liberty and slavery. 

That’s why the UMFSP will work tirelessly to promote and support sheriffs that have vowed to uphold your constitutional freedoms – even if that means taking a stand against a corrupt government. Fortunately, there are still many elected leaders who will support your freedoms in the face of tyranny and unjust rule. 

In Colorado, several Sheriffs have refused to enforce red flag laws that strip citizens of due process and put both gun owners and law enforcement officers in harm’s way. In Snohomish County, Wash., Sheriff Adam Fortney is refusing to enforce the governor’s stay-at-home order, which he says “intrudes on our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

In California, at least  sheriffs have refused to enforce Governor Gavin Newsome’s illegal mandate for all citizens to wear masks. Sheriff Richard Mack of Graham County, Arizona took the defense of our liberties so seriously that he took his fight against unconstitutional laws all the way to the Supreme Court. 

In 2011 Mack founded the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA). The organization has a mission similar to Oath Keepers, encouraging members to refuse to enforce laws that they believe are unconstitutional.

The UMFSP will work to support sheriffs like Richard Mack who faithfully protect our liberty in the face of oppression. 

Charities

The UMFSP is not the first group to fight back against medical tyranny, and we want to support our partners and other charities that have provided support for families who have been oppressed by an unjust government. One of these charities is Children’s Health Defense.

Founded by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the Children’s Health Defense Team is devoted to the health of people and our planet. Their mission is to end the childhood health epidemics by working aggressively to eliminate harmful exposures, hold those responsible accountable, and establish safeguards so this never happens again.

Another charity that we support is the Informed Consent Action Network. Founded by Del Bigtree (one of the creators of Vaxxed), the Informed Consent Action Network believes that you hold the ultimate authority over your health choices and those of your children. 

In a medical world manipulated by advertising and financial interests, true information is hard to find and often harder to understand. Their goal is to put the power of scientifically researched health information in your hands and to be bold and transparent in doing so, enabling your medical decisions to come from tangible understanding… not medical coercion. 

We will actively seek out charities that support victims of medical kidnapping, unlawful vaccination, and those whose constitutional and religious freedoms have been trampled. 

Volunteerism

There are many ways that you can get involved, and becoming a member of the UMFSP is just the beginning. You help by advocating for the oppressed and victims of vaccine injury, spreading the word about honest, loyal candidates who will protect our medical freedoms, or by donating to help us support sheriffs, politicians, and other organizations who will stand beside us as we take back our fundamental rights. 

News

In order to combat the massive amounts of propaganda and misinformation that currently exist, we will keep you updated on all the latest medical and political news as it pertains to medical freedom. From pending legislation, to scientific studies, the UMFSP will be the first to get you the information you need to make educated decisions about your family’s health. 

The Time is Now

We are at a dangerous tipping point in our nation’s history. Never before have our elected officials worked so aggressively – and so effectively – to strip away our medical freedom, religious freedos, and our freedom of speech. Big Pharma and the medical mafia wield so much power in our legislative processes that it may seem impossible to stop them. 

But when we are united, we are strong. 

There is an active propaganda machine working as a precursor to compulsory vaccination mandates around the world. Fear is already being manufactured, opposition is already being silenced, and ordinary people are already so polarized that civil discussion is hard to come by. But we are not alone. Elected officials like Rand Paul and Robert F Kennedy, Jr. have been vocal in their opposition to mandatory vaccination. As long as we have a voice, we have a choice.

You can stand up to your local state governments and demand that exemption policies remain intact. You can let politicians know that anyone taking money from big pharma stands no chance of re-election. You can vote with your dollars by refusing to support companies that actively stifle freedom. And you can make a difference by becoming well-informed so that you can have respectful, evidence-based discourse with those who disagree with you.

And you can get started right now by joining the United Medical Freedom Super PAC today.

OHIO COUNTY CREATES HOTLINE FOR NEIGHBORS TO REPORT NON-MASK WEARERS

Cuyahoga County, Ohio, has rolled out a hotline for residents to snitch on those of their neighbors who do not wear masks, in line with an executive order by Governor Mike DeWine, a Republican, mandating masks in public when “social distancing” is not possible.

County Executive Armond Budish made the announcement, telling the people of Cuyahoga that individuals who witness others not wearing a mask in public spaces should make complaints to the new hotline or file on a website titled “Mask Experience.”

Once a complaint has been filed, county workers contact the subject of the complaint, whether it’s an individual or business, to let them know. The complaints are also forwarded to the Board of Health and the relevant village or city. “This is not intended to be going out and finding people not wearing masks. We want people to wear their masks…. We want people to do it voluntarily,” Budish said.

Yet the warnings about non-compliance coming from leaders make it sound anything but voluntary. Repeated complaints or cases of “non-compliance” could bring an investigation or even charges by authorities. 

Budish maintained that while police may enforce the order, “There’s not enough people in law enforcement throughout the county to track down people, chase them around and figure out who we can go after for not wearing a mask.” Nevertheless, Budish held that municipalities and police departments could use proactive policing to enforce the order if they want to.

While residents can make their complaints about neighbors to the Board of Health or their local governments directly, Budish said the hotline will better allow the Board of Health to focus on contact tracing and testing instead of mask enforcement.

The Board of Health has the authority to have local authorities reach out if businesses repeatedly ignore the mask order. Violation of the order is a second-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.

DeWine signed the mask order on July 8. It applies to Cuyahoga, Butler, Franklin, Hamilton, Huron, Montgomery, and Trumbull counties. The governor pointed to a high level of coronavirus spread as justification for the decision. “We’re not looking to see a lot of people arrested. That’s not the idea at all. The idea is this is the norm. This is what is needed for Ohioans to stay safe,” DeWine said.

According to the order, residents of the targeted counties must wear “face coverings” when:

(a) In any indoor location that is not a residence

(b) Outdoors and unable to consistently maintain a distance of six feet or more from individuals who are not members of their households; or 

(c) Waiting for, riding, driving, or operating public transportation, a taxi, a private care service, or a ride sharing vehicle.

The order does come with some exceptions, such as when a person is seated and actively consuming food or beverage in a restaurant or bar (as though a virus knows to stop spreading just because a person is eating) or when someone is talking to a hearing-impaired person who must see the other person’s mouth to understand them.

The narrative from the establishment has been to have everyone wear masks anywhere in public. Everyone from Joe Biden to Goldman Sachs to Hollywood celebrities is advocating for mask-wearing, mocking and shaming anyone who refuses to conform.

In states, such as Florida, that have not yet imposed statewide mask mandates, counties have taken it upon themselves to do so. Even First Lady Melania Trump has urged Americans to cover their faces.

All this despite the fact that studies have failed to prove that masks stop the spread of infectious diseases. Moreover, research has shown that mask-wearing helps spread disease because people often contaminate their hands through frequent face touching when wearing masks.

Already, there is a movement to make masks a permanent fixture of life. An article at Fast Company, which looks at the possibilities of “high-tech” masks in the future declares, “Masks are probably here to stay. But they’ll need to evolve.”

An article at the Washington Post is titled “Masks Are Here to Stay, Even After Covid Goes Away.” Another WAPO article says “Masks are here to stay and they’re quickly becoming a way to express ourselves.”

The website Newsleaders proclaims, “Masks are here to stay; get used to it.”

Mask-wearing isn’t about health. It’s about the elites seeing who they can get to submit.

 

TRACKING VACCINATION STATUS BY PHONE IS NOW ACTIVE

Tracking Vaccination Status by Phone is Now Active

You may soon be living in a world where your personal health data—including results from COVID-19 testing and data proving whether or not you’ve received certain vaccines—must be shared and authenticated before you’re able to enter a sports arena, travel by air or even enter your workplace.

The technology behind such innovations, which many are calling a threat to civil liberties and privacy, is already available to the general public in the App Store and Google Play via Civic Technologies’ Civic Wallet. Civic Technologies, which bills itself as a “leading innovator in digital identity solutions,”1 released its “Civic Wallet” app June 16, 2020. Previously it was only available in private beta mode.

In addition to offering a way for users to send and receive digital currency, including bitcoin, ethereum, CVC and USDC, which are U.S. dollars converted to assets on the ethereum blockchain,2 Civic Wallet will also offer proof-of-health verifications via its so-called Health Key.

This, according to a news release, “will offer the ability to provide secure and regulation-compliant health checks for employers,”3 which means your employer may one day require you to prove you’re COVID negative and/or vaccinated in order to hold a job and earn a living.

Hundreds of Employees Will Have Health Data Verified by Phone

Civic Technologies has partnered with Circle Medical, an affiliate of San Francisco-based hospital UCSF Health, which will use the app so 500 of its employees can prove their health and vaccination status. First, the employees will be tested for COVID-19 at a Circle Medical facility in the San Francisco Bay area—more facilities are also expected to be coming soon.4 As noted by Forbes, the partnership:5

… will let employees prove to their employers the results of their most recent COVID-19 tests, and when a vaccine is developed, whether or not they’ve received it.

Far from a theoretical blockchain application that might be of value at some future date, the app, which lets users prove a wide range of personal information, as well as spend bitcoin, ether, a version of the U.S. dollar issued on the ethereum blockchain, and Civic’s own token is available … on both Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Civic plans to roll out its proof-of-health verification for companies with more than 500 employees. When an employee signs up, they will be verified as a real person using a mix of artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain-based technology, then have the option to share their “Health Key” with third parties.

Vinny Lingham, Civic’s co-founder and CEO, told Forbes, “You don’t have to transmit your name, or anything like that … So you can walk into a stadium anonymously like you do today, but just prove that as you walk through the gates that you’d been vaccinated.”6

As for those who may feel that having to “prove” they’ve been vaccinated to enter a stadium or other facility is a violation of their privacy and right to informed consent, Lingham stated, “If you’re part of a society where the majority of the people want everyone to be vaccinated, and you don’t want to be part of that society change countries, move somewhere else.”7

The app had more than 100,000 people signed up on its waiting list, and more than 12,000 downloads occurred on the first day of its launch.8 Circle Medical’s founder and CEO told Forbes, “I think with COVID there is a real need on the part of the employer to be able to screen and assess COVID risk before they let people back into the workplace.”9

Vending Machines, Buildings Could Require Data Verification

In addition to employers, services like vending machines and building security services could be among those that would require people to provide certain information prior to using the machine or entering the building. The data exists on an ethereum-powered decentralized identity network, in which the user owns the identity of the information, which is requested by a service. At that point, Forbes reported:10

An agreed-upon fee paid for in Civic’s native token (CVC) is placed into an escrow account and the validator software scans the requester’s required personally identifiable information (for example, age or vaccine status). CVC now sells for $$0.0327, according to Messari, with a total market value of $29 million.

If the user meets the criteria and the requester is satisfied access is granted and the fee in escrow is released. Thanks to cutting-edge mathematical breakthroughs called zero-knowledge proofs, not even the validator actually has the information, but just knows whether or not the requirement is met.

In early testing phases, Civic partnered with beer giant Anheuser-Busch Inbev to create vending machines for beer, with users proving their age using a version of Civic Wallet. Since then, 12 companies have contracted with Civic to sell age-restricted products via vending machines.

What’s more, “Civic is currently in conversations with health care companies and government agencies under terms of a nondisclosure agreement,” Forbes noted, in addition to plans by Johnson Controls International (JCI) to use the technology as part of its credentials for building access.11

Another Move Toward Global Currency?

In addition to its proof-of-health verification, Civic Wallet is intended to allow users an “easy way to pay friends and family around the world” using digital currency, which can be “sent globally with low fees for a limited time.” Funds can be sent to usernames, addresses or QR codes using the app, and Civic Wallet offers a $1 million cryptocurrency protection guarantee insured by Lloyd’s of London underwriters.12

“If you have up to a million dollars in your wallet,” Lingham told Forbes, “you lose your phone, you break your phone, you’re fleeing your country in some part of the world and your phone falls in the ocean, you will get your funds on the other side.”13

Cryptocurrencies are developed for a variety of reasons. For instance, Bitcoins are used to buy and sell products and services. However, some companies are using cryptocurrency to give buyers access to a product or service that the company is offering or plans to offer.14

It’s a way of raising money but, unlike stock where you own part of the company that’s offering it, during an initial coin offering (ICO) you are buying a future service or product—Civic Technologies raised $43 million in a 2017 ICO.15

The backbone of cryptocurrency systems is meant to be decentralized. However, Google, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation formed Mojaloop, which is open-source software designed to be used for financial transactions that is intended to be hosted by a government or financial institution authorities.

Mojaloop is poised to create a platform that allows people from all over the world to send money to each other with low transaction fees, similar to Civic Wallet. Ripple, a payment cryptocurrency and platform currently used by some banks, will be the foundation of payment processing for Mojaloop.

Unlike other cryptocurrencies that rely on blockchain to encrypt and safeguard the transactions, Ripple uses a patented technology called Ripple protocol consensus algorithm (RPCA). Included in their network, called RippleNet, are several institutional payment providers that people use to send money around the world.

These providers include American Express, PNC Bank, Interbank and MoneyGram.16 Together with Google, Gates and other large tech companies in the coalition, Ripple is positioned to potentially gain control of a created global currency and drive down the value of country-based currency.

First State Hands Over Vaccine Mandate Power to ACIP

Meanwhile, as Civic Technologies quietly released an app to track your vaccination status, the Virginia legislature passed H.B.1090 earlier in 2020, which amended a law requiring children attending day care and public and private schools in the state to receive vaccines.

The bill proposed that children enrolled in Virginia day care or schools automatically be required to receive all vaccines recommended by the federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) as a condition for getting a school education.

The final bill gives the Virginia Board of Health the legal authority to add any vaccines recommended by ACIP, except for the annual influenza vaccination, to the list of vaccines required for children to attend school without holding public hearings or a vote by elected state legislators.

In so doing, Virginia citizens have been blocked from participating in the vaccine law-making process and legislators have turned over their law-making authority to unelected members of the board of health and a federal advisory committee. The Vaccine Reaction reported:17

In handing the power to make vaccine laws to unelected members of a federal advisory committee and state Board of Health, the Virginia legislature has abdicated responsibility and accountability to constituents by cutting out elected representatives and the voters who elected them from the vaccine law making process.

Although the new law provides for a 60-day public comment period after the Board of Health issues a Notice of Intended Regulatory Action to add a new vaccine to the required list for daycare and school attendance, the legislature will never again hold a public hearing where citizens can testify for or against the addition of a new vaccine mandate for children.

What’s more, in a legislative committee public hearing on the proposed law that was held Jan. 21, 2020, no time restrictions were placed on those speaking in favor of the bill, but a 10-minute cap—total—was placed on those speaking in opposition. This meant the majority of those waiting to testify in opposition were prevented from speaking, blocking their right to participate in the democratic law-making process.

The same pattern occurred again when the bill moved to the House Appropriations Subcommittee, with no time limit place for those in favor of the bill and a 10-minute cap placed on those speaking against it. The bill’s passing is even more concerning in light of the current race to develop COVID-19 vaccines, which are being fast-tracked and will likely be mandated despite legitimate concerns about potential risks and concerns about effectiveness. According to The Vaccine Reaction:

The automatic adoption by state public health officials of all new federally recommended vaccines to the required list for children to attend school in the Commonwealth without input from citizens and elected representatives is even more concerning because COVID-19 vaccines are being fast tracked to licensure.

While it normally takes 15 to 20 years to develop a vaccine, a vaccine for COVD-19 may be on the market by this September and federally recommended for use by all children and adults in 2021.18

Now that Virginia has handed over its vaccine law-making power to the CDC and ACIP, others are likely to follow, just as more employers are likely to adopt Civic Technologies’ proof-of-health verification app and others like it.

Ultimately, this and other privacy violations, like contact tracing apps, could lead to a future in which a vaccine certificate or “unique patient ID number” replaces personal identifications such as your driver’s license, state ID card, Social Security card and passport, and is tied not only to your medical records in total, but also your finances.

If you may soon be required to “prove” that you’ve passed certain medical tests and received certain vaccines just to enter a building or go to work, what other information may also be required one day? Will state governments continue to take away additional freedoms and eliminate your right to privacy in the name of public health?

If you’re concerned about preserving your rights to vaccine choice and would like more information on how to proactively protect those rights, please visit the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) website, where you can find an illustrated and fully referenced “A Guide to Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law,” which is an excellent vaccine education tool for you, legislators and friends and family, too.

The challenges are great, but so are the opportunities to educate and empower legislators and residents of every state to defend vaccine freedom of choice. NVIC is committed to continuing to make that happen and they look forward to working with you through the NVIC Advocacy Portal to help you protect vaccine informed consent rights in your state in 2020 and beyond.

71 PERCENT OF AMERICANS REJECT PRIVACY-KILLING CONTACT TRACING APPS

Europeans also say no to government monitoring

71 Percent Of Americans Reject Privacy-Killing Contact Tracing Apps

Almost three quarters of Americans say they will not submit their privacy to contact tracing apps, with Europeans also rejecting the notion outright because they do not trust government to keep their information safe and refrain from misusing it.

study from Avira reveals that the vast majority of Americans are against contact tracing apps, with 71 percent saying they will not download them, and 75% believing their digital privacy is at risk from the technology.

The poll found that only 14 percent believe the government would protect their data effectively.

When asked if they would trust big tech more than the government, 32 percent said they would feel safe giving Apple or Google their data.

The study also noted that those working in Government and Healthcare are the least-likely to download the technology, with 84% of people from these sectors saying they will not use the apps.

Image: Avira

Travis Witteveen, CEO of Avira commented “We believe these survey results send a clear signal to both app creators and the government. COVID contact tracing apps could fail before they launch if developers don’t communicate to the public how they plan to protect people’s privacy.”

Meanwhile, in Germany people are also rejecting the contact tracing technology owing to privacy concerns.

The amount of people willing to use the apps has fallen to 42 percent, according to polling data from Forschungsgruppe Wahlen.

Statista notes that the latest data indicates a 6 percentage point drop since April:

In Norway, the technology has been completely abandoned after it was deemed to be too invasive.

Amnesty International has warned that contact tracing apps like Norway’s are “most alarming mass surveillance tools”. The organisation’s assessment did not include the US contact tracing app.

In the UK, despite touting it for months, the government has (predictably) failed to roll out its contact tracing app because of bureaucracy.

Cybersecurity experts also analysed the source code of the app and found no less than seven major flaws.

In this episode of Behind the Deep State, host Alex Newman exposes the Deep State organizations and individuals working to shred privacy and invade your home with so-called “contact tracing.” From HR 6666 and phone apps for tracking you to microchips under the skin for children and home visits splitting up families, the agenda is totalitarian to the core. And yet, with very little resistance, this scheme is moving forward at the state and even global level under the World Health Organization.

COVI-PASS: UK INTRODUCES ‘DIGITAL HEALTH PASSPORT’ TO MONITOR TRAVEL, HEALTH OF POPULATION~COVID VACCINE: WHAT ELSE COULD THEY PUT IN THE SHOT?

COVI-PASS: UK Introduces 'Digital Health Passport' To Monitor Travel, Health Of Population
COVI-PASS: UK INTRODUCES 
‘DIGITAL HEALTH PASSPORT’ 
TO MONITOR TRAVEL, HEALTH OF POPULATION

We warned you for years; now it’s here!

The UK government is preparing to rollout a new “digital health passport” to monitor nearly every aspect of citizens’ lives in the name of strengthening public health management.
British cybersecurity firm VST Enterprises, in partnership with the UK government, developed an application called “COVI-PASS” to track “your Covid-19 test history and immunoresponse and other relevant health information” using a proprietary matrix code called a “VCode.”
The COVI-PASS website bills the tech as “the World’s most secure Digital Health Passport, built on patented technology, awarded the ‘Seal of Excellence’ by the European Commission and being used by various United Nations Projects.”
The “VCode” itself is described as an end-all tech that can store every sensitive detail about your life using military-grade encryption software.
“Assign any form of information to your own VCode® securely. Your VCode® can store anything from identity details, in case of emergency information, health records, payment methods, car registration numbers, business card details, social media links and much more all from the same code.”
The company states that the technology will “allow” people to go back to work “safely,” suggesting the technology could be mandatory in order to return to work.
“As a secure Digital Health Passport, COVI-PASS™ links and displays a certified Covid-19 test result to the user’s Health and Immunoresponse, using a secure biometric gateway, allowing individuals to return to work and life safely,” the website states.
“COVI-PASS™, biometrically accessed on a mobile phone, or held on a key fob or RFID, provides a unique authenticated gateway for Government / Health Services and Businesses to ensure a safe work environment.”
A sports marketing company called Redstrike Group is partnering with VST Enterprises to introduce the tech for group sporting events, saying that people will only be able to return to daily life after they’ve been “officially tested.”
“Redstrike Group and its partner, Manchester-based cyber-security firm VST Enterprises, is delivering ground-breaking digital passport solution to governments, healthcare organizations, sports federations, leagues and clubs around the world. The VCode Digital Health Passport enables individuals who have been officially tested to start returning to work and daily activities in a safe and secure environment.”
As we reported last month, depopulation czar Bill Gates touted “immunity passports” as a means of contact tracing the U.S. population in order to reopen the economy.
“An even better solution would be the broad, voluntary adoption of digital tools,” wrote in the Washington Post. “For example, there are apps that will help you remember where you have been; if you ever test positive, you can review the history or choose to share it with whoever comes to interview you about your contacts.”
“And some people have proposed allowing phones to detect other phones that are near them by using Bluetooth and emitting sounds that humans can’t hear. If someone tested positive, their phone would send a message to the other phones, and their owners could get tested. If most people chose to install this kind of application, it would probably help some.”

COVID Vaccine: What Else Could They Put in the Shot?

COVID VACCINE: WHAT ELSE COULD THEY PUT IN THE SHOT?

There can be no doubt that nanotechnology is, indeed, very much involved in cutting-edge vaccine research

BY JON RAPPOPORT
SEE: https://www.infowars.com/covid-vaccine-what-else-could-they-put-in-the-shot/republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
There has never been a greater opportunity to deploy one vaccine against so many people. So it’s certainly not out of line to consider a “dual use.”
I have already covered the devastating effects of experimental RNA/DNA vaccine technologies—both of which could be launched with a COVID vaccine. Putting that aside for the moment, could the vaccine serve another purpose?
In this article, I raise questions. Questions about the potential covert use of nanotechnology in the COVID vaccine.
From lexico.com: nanotechnology: “The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.”
Are researchers interested in marrying nanotechnology and vaccines?
Here is a quote from Frontiers in Immunology, January 24, 2019, “Nanoparticle-Based Vaccines Against Respiratory Viruses”: A new generation of vaccines based on nanoparticles has shown great potential to address most of the limitations of conventional and subunit vaccines. This is due to recent advances in chemical and biological engineering, which allow the design of nanoparticles with a precise control over the size, shape, functionality and surface properties, leading to enhanced antigen presentation and strong immunogenicity. This short review provides an overview of the advantages associated with the use of nanoparticles as vaccine delivery platforms to immunize against respiratory viruses…” [such as the purported COVID-19 virus?]
Here is another quote, also from Frontiers in Immunology, October 4, 2018, “Nanoparticle Vaccines Against Infectious Diseases”: In the last several years, the use of nanoparticle-based vaccines has received a great attention to improve vaccine efficacy, immunization strategies, and targeted delivery to achieve desired immune responses at the cellular level…Nanocarriers composed of lipids, proteins, metals or polymers have already been used…This review article focuses on the applications of nanocarrier-based vaccine formulations and the strategies used for the functionalization of nanoparticles to accomplish efficient delivery of vaccines in order to induce desired host immunity against infectious diseases.”
There can be no doubt that nanotechnology is, indeed, very much involved in cutting-edge vaccine research.
Now let’s shift into another use of nanotech.
Here are astonishing quotes from the journal Nano Today, from a 2019 paper titled: “Nanowire probes could drive high-resolution brain-machine interfaces.” Its authors are Chinese and American:
“…advances can enable investigations of dynamics in the brain [through nano-sensor-implants] and drive the development of new brain-machine interfaces with unprecedented resolution and precision.”
“…output electrical signals of brain activity or input electrical stimuli to modulate brain activity in concert with external machines, including computer processors and prosthetics, for human enhancement…”
Aside from research into prosthetics and, perhaps, the reversal of certain paralyses, this avenue of investigation also suggests “modulation” of the brain remotely connected to machines, for the purpose of control.
Modulation…such as control of basic thought-impulses, sensations, emotions?
ONE: Nano-sensors, implanted in the body and brain, would issue real time data-reports on body/brain functioning to ops centers.
TWO: And from those ops centers, data—including instructions—would be sent back to the nano-sensors, which would impose those instructions on the brain and body.
If this seems impossible, consider nanotech research aimed at improving the use of prosthetics. In that field, imposing instructions on the body/brain appears to be the whole point.
The question is: how far along the road of development is this technology? I can only say we are seeing the public published face of nanotech. What lies behind it, in secret research, is a matter for estimation and speculation.
I offer one speculation: the “promotion” of the social agenda of collectivist thought, through nanotech. Utilizing the Internet of Things, an attempt would be made to hook up and “harmonize” many, many brains with one another. Same basic feelings, same impulses—shared.
Who would be interested in such a program? Think Chinese government, DARPA (the technology arm of the Pentagon), and numerous other international actors. Think Rockefeller medical researchers. Think technocracy and Brave New World.
SUPPOSE, THROUGH A COVID VACCINE, NANOTECH COULD BE INSERTED INTO BODIES AND BRAINS OF THE GLOBAL POPULATION? As a grand control “experiment.” Is that too far-out an idea?
Here is an interesting quote from a 3/11/20 S&P Global article, “Early-stage nanotechnology poised for ‘inflection point’”:
“One of the most pressing global healthcare challenges in 2020 is the coronavirus outbreak and Moderna Inc….is on the front line of vaccine development for this new biological threat.”
“Moderna’s nanoparticle-driven science uses genetic engineering to trigger cells to create proteins that prevent certain infections. Its vaccines for Zika virus and influenza have already progressed to early clinical stages…”
If Moderna’s COVID vaccine is indeed using nanoparticles, I have not seen this mentioned in current press reports.
The S&P Global article states, “One of the leaders in the field of biological nanotech engineering is Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Robert Langer, who has helped found about 40 companies based on technology created and developed in his Langer Lab…Moderna Inc., one of the companies Langer helped found…”
Does Moderna’s COVID vaccine use nanoparticles? If so, what can these particles actually do? These are pressing questions that need to be answered.
I offer two backgrounders I wrote several months ago. They involve the flood of highly significant scientific research across borders.

BACKGROUNDER ONE: Behind the explosive Charles Lieber nanotech scandal
Once upon a time, they called it espionage. Then they called it “illegal technology transfer.” Then they casually and admiringly called it Globalism.
Imagine this.
A cutting-edge technology, which has applications for weaponry, transportation, medicine, artificial intelligence, surveillance, mind control…is being openly shared between the US and China. And by implication, who knows how many other nations?
As just one example, tiny sensors would, up the road, be placed inside the human body. These sensors would automatically monitor and report thousands of changes, in real time, in the body—as a way of diagnosing diseases.
The sensors will transmit all this information, through the emerging Internet of Things—using the 5G pipeline—to medical centers—where AI corporate and government analysts will make the disease diagnoses and prescribe treatments.
Eventually, a few billion people (patients) would, through these sensors in their bodies, be hooked up to the 5G Internet of Things.
—HOWEVER, as I’ve reported many times in these pages, the standard definitions of diseases and disorders are often incorrect, or even invented. But because the future system I’ve just sketched is automated, the patient is enclosed in a fake and dangerous bubble. Among other problems, the disease treatments, the drugs and vaccines, are toxic.
What is the technology that is on the way to producing these body sensors?
Nanoscience. Nano-engineering.
From lexico.com: nanotechnology: “The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.”
One of the leading nanoscience researchers in the world was recently arrested on a charge of concealing his connections to China.
Major US science star busted by the feds.
Charles Lieber, now suspended by Harvard, is the University’s chairman of the chemistry department.
I have read two articles from a foreign news outlet headlined with the claim that Lieber stole and smuggled the “new coronavirus” from the US to China. In both cases, the text of the articles mentioned nothing about such a theft. I’m not writing this article about “coronavirus.” I’ve been writing many articles rejecting the premise of an “epidemic” caused by the “virus.”
I decided to look into this situation, because Lieber does apparently have big-time connections to China. Sharing research on his specialty, nanoscience, with China would be one more case of “technology transfer.”
Bloomberg News, February 12, 2020: “Lieber’s arrest on Jan. 28 came in connection with his dealings in China. He hasn’t been charged with any type of economic espionage, intellectual-property theft, or export violations. Instead, he’s accused of lying to U.S. Department of Defense investigators about his work with the People’s Republic…”
“…by targeting Lieber, the chairman of Harvard’s chemistry department and a veritable ivory tower blue blood, prosecutors struck at the crimson heart of the academic elite, raising fears that globalism, when it comes to doing science with China, is being criminalized.”
“According to a government affidavit, signed by a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent named Robert Plumb, Lieber signed at least three agreements with Wuhan Technology University, or WUT, in central China. These included a contract with the state-sponsored Thousand Talents Plan—an effort by Beijing to attract mostly expatriate [Chinese] researchers and their know-how back home—worth a total of about $653,000 a year in pay [to Lieber] and living expenses for three years, plus $1.74 million [to Lieber] to support a new ‘Harvard-WUT Nano Key Lab’ in Wuhan. The government offered no evidence that Lieber actually received those sums… Lieber also deceived Harvard about his China contracts, the [federal] affidavit said.”
“Whatever extracurricular arrangements Lieber may have had in China, his Harvard lab was a paragon of U.S.-China collaboration. He relied on a pipeline of China’s brightest Ph.D. students and postdocs, often more than a dozen at a time, to produce prize-winning research on the revolutionary potential of so-called nanowires in biomedical implants. Dozens of Lieber’s 100 or so former lab members from China have chosen to stay in the U.S. Many now lead their own nanoscience labs at top universities, including Duke, Georgia Tech, MIT, Stanford, University of California at Berkeley, and UCLA.”
I’d say that’s a pretty big technology-transfer WOW right there.
“In the 1990s and 2000s, as Lieber’s achievements and stature were taking off, U.S. research institutions and grant makers pumped money and moral support into expanding the burgeoning collaborations between scientists in the U.S. and other countries, particularly China. The new paradigm was globalization, China was an emerging economic power, and Lieber’s lab became an exemplar of pan-Pacific collaboration. “
Another WOW. Not a leak of information. A flood.
“A more controversial Lieber protégé is Liqiang Mai, the international dean and chair of materials science at WUT, the little-known school in Wuhan that prosecutors allege recruited Lieber to be a ‘strategic scientist’ in 2011, for $50,000 a month. Mai, who hasn’t been named in any U.S. filings against Lieber, earned a doctorate at WUT in 2004 and worked as a postdoc in Lieber’s lab from 2008 to 2011, according to Mai’s WUT online bio….”
How big a star is Lieber? Wikpedia: “Charles M. Lieber (born 1959) is an American chemist and pioneer in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. In 2011, Lieber was recognized by Thomson Reuters as the leading chemist in the world for the decade 2000-2010 based on the impact of his scientific publications. Lieber has published over 400 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has edited and contributed to many books on nanoscience. He is the principal inventor on over fifty issued US patents and applications, and founded the nanotechnology company Nanosys in 2001 and Vista Therapeutics in 2007. He is known for his contributions to the synthesis, assembly and characterization of nanoscale materials and nanodevices, the application of nanoelectronic devices in biology, and as a mentor to numerous leaders in nanoscience. In 2012, Lieber was awarded Israel’s Wolf Prize in Chemistry.”
Chemistry and Engineering News, January 28, 2020: “In addition, Lieber allegedly signed a contract that obligated Harvard to become part of a cooperative research program that allowed WUT [Chinese] scientists to visit the university up to two months each year. The [federal] complaint says he did not inform university officials of the agreement, which was for ‘advanced research and development of nano wire-based lithium-ion batteries with high performance for electric vehicles’.”
Another “technology transfer” of great value.
“…the NIH [US National Institutes of Health, a federal agency] asked Harvard about whether the university or Lieber failed to disclose his financial relationship with China. Lieber has been a principal investigator on at least three NIH grants totaling $10 million since 2008. After interviewing Lieber, Harvard [incorrectly, supposedly based on Lieber’s statements] responded to the NIH that he [Lieber] had ‘no formal association with WUT [Wuhan Institute of Technology]’ and ‘is not and has never been a participant in’ the [Chinese] Thousand Talents program.”
NIH has strict regulations about its researchers disclosing their conflict-of-interest connections. The feds obviously believe Lieber has failed to report his China connections to NIH. This would become a factor in his prosecution.
Lieber was operating a robust center at Harvard: Lieber Research Group. Its focus is nanoscience and nanotechnology. So it’s natural to ask, what kind of research findings would be shared with China?
On the Group’s website, there is this, right off the bat: “We are pioneering the interface between nanoelectronics and the life sciences…sensors for real-time disease detection…”
Hence, the picture of the future I sketched at the beginning of this backgrounder.
I may report further on nanoscience. Of course, the ominous technological innovations apply to both China and the US, and the rest of the world…
The Chinese government has the clout, will, force, and intent to impose, without hesitation, every sort of possible control on its 1.4 billion citizens. It is in the process of building many new “smart cities.” These centers will be models of wall-to-wall surveillance. AI, Internet of Things, 5G, the works. If nanoscience can achieve much more intimate access to people, through implanted sensors, why wouldn’t the Chinese government jump at the chance to deploy it? The rationale and the cover story are obvious: WE MUST HAVE EARLY KNOWLEDGE OF NEW VIRUS EPIDEMICS. WE WILL DETECT THEM DIRECTLY FROM THE BODIES OF OUR PEOPLE IN REAL TIME.
All hail, Globalism and technocracy.

BACKGROUNDER TWO: Nano-technology: one world, one brain
From lexico.com: nanotechnology: “The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.”
The recent arrest of Harvard pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, Charles Lieber—on charges of lying to federal authorities about his business connections to China—has exposed wide-ranging relationships among American and Chinese researchers.
These relationships include, above all, the open sharing of sensitive technologies that, once upon a time, would have been considered closely guarded state secrets.
Here are quotes from the journal Nano Today, from a 2019 paper titled: “Nanowire probes could drive high-resolution brain-machine interfaces”. Its authors are Chinese and American:
“…advances can enable investigations of dynamics in the brain [through tiny sensor-implants] and drive the development of new brain-machine interfaces with unprecedented resolution and precision.”
“…output electrical signals of brain activity or input electrical stimuli to modulate brain activity in concert with external machines, including computer processors and prosthetics, for human enhancement…”
Aside from research into prosthetics and, perhaps, the reversal of certain paralyses, this avenue of investigation also suggests “modulation” of the brain, hooked to machines, for the purpose of control. Control of basic thoughts, sensations, emotions.
And along with the Internet of Things, why couldn’t that control eventually be extended, in order to “harmonize” many, many brains with one another?
Who would be interested in such a thing? Think Chinese government, DARPA (the technology arm of the Pentagon), and numerous other international actors. Think Rockefeller medical researchers. Think technocracy and Brave New World.
Over the past few decades, the flow of all sorts of ultra-sensitive scientific information, between the US and China, hasn’t consisted of rare leaks. It’s a flood, out in the open, in labs and universities. All part of the new share-and-care Globalist agenda.
Nanotechnology, to choose one branch of such research-exchange, has applications in weaponry, transportation, surveillance, medicine, etc. And of course, mind control.
“Look, I’m certainly willing to share my latest research on nano-brain implants. But I need your, ahem, assurance that your government won’t use this for dark purposes.”
“I understand completely. My government would no more do that than your government would.”
“All right. Then we’re good.”
“Yes. Good.”
How did US-China relations get to this point? At one time, it appeared the two governments were involved in a cold war. Oh, that’s right, President Nixon opened up China to trade, in 1972, after 25 years of no diplomatic relations. Nixon was the agent of David Rockefeller, who, years earlier, had rescued him from a broken career as a politician. David Rockefeller, arch Globalist.
Here’s what Rockefeller blithely wrote in 1973, a year after Nixon had worked his China miracle:
“Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.” (“From a China Traveler”. NY Times. August 10, 1973.)
Millions of people dead, freedom crushed, a whole population under the boot of the Communist regime, but somehow that’s not what David Rockefeller saw, or pretended to see. He, like other of his elite Globalist colleagues, admired the Chinese government for the capacity to control its own people, to such a high degree.
Flash forward 47 years. Scientists from both countries are blowing each other kisses, as they collaborate on developing a technology that has the potential to gain intimate influence inside the human brain itself.
—Of course, remember, when political push comes to shove, and it always does, China is the friend of China. In the case of American corporate and government big shots, hometown loyalty tends to be conditional, depending on which sources and countries are putting money on the table.

Taking the Moral High Ground in the Internment of 2020
Who is it that really cares about lives?
BY JACK KERWICK
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research
purposes:
Life in the Age of the Great UnReason can be difficult for some of us.
Conservatives and others who now take exception to the Internment of 2020—the reduction of citizens’ homes, towns, and states to what amounts to internment camps from which they are forbidden to leave via “Shelter-in-Place” orders—typically frame their position in terms of “reopening the economy.”   
In doing so, they stack the deck against themselves.
Putting the matter this way cedes the moral high ground to those who want to prolong the Internment, for it invites the latter to depict the conflict as one between those, like themselves, who care about life, versus those conservatives who only care about “money.”
Indeed, this is exactly what has happened.
Those of us who have recognized the Great Unreason for what it is from the outset and who demand a restoration of America would be well-served to take a different tack. It is we, and not those who insist upon suppressing the country, who have the moral capital:
Tens of millions of people forced out of work;
Over 100,000 businesses forced to close forever, and thousands upon thousands more that have been made to lose millions;
The inevitable increase of instances of suicide and domestic abuse (here and here);
The exacerbation of such mental health phenomena as despondency, depression, and anxiety;
The higher incidences of alcohol and drug abuse (here and here) that invariably correlate with unemployment and alienation;
The loneliness and accompanying depression of untold numbers of elderly and sick people whose families have been forbidden by state governors from visiting them in hospitals and nursing facilities;
The loneliness and accompanying depression of untold numbers of people from all backgrounds who have been alienated from their friends, families, faith communities, and the myriad of other associations to which they’ve belonged and that define their identities as the specific, unique individuals that they are;
The people who have grown sicker, and who have outright died, because they have been denied medical attention that has been reserved for COVID-19 patients (herehere, and here);
The exponential exacerbation of tensions between the citizenry, particularly those citizens who otherwise have been their biggest defenders, and police officers who attempt to enforce the oppressive decrees of governors;
The de facto indefinite revocation of the United States Constitution (as New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy now infamously, and ominously, told Tucker Carlson when the latter challenged his authority to, in effect, intern the residents of his state: “The Bill of Rights is above my paygrade.”);
The promotion—via those “Social Distancing” protocols proscribing human contact and requiring the wearing of those stupid, hideous masks—of something bordering on a paralyzing fear of others;
The unprecedented closing of churches and other houses of worship;
The starving of hundreds of millions and potentially billions (see here)of otherwise impoverished peoples from around the planet whose lives will be made that much more wretched by the disruption of the global food supply chains within which America is the most indispensable of links;
And, let us not forget—what the media seems all too ready to forget—the tens of thousands of elderly, immunocompromised nursing facility patients to die from The Virus because governors like Andrew Cuomo in New York and Phil Murphy in New Jersey forced these facilities to accept COVID patients.
These are the consequences that have ensued from the “mitigation” policies—based as they are on the wildly inaccurate models designed by the now disgracedepically and perpetually wrong Neil Ferguson—prescribed by such bureaucrats as Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, enthusiastically promoted by partisan hacks in Big Media, and imposed upon the citizenry by power-hungry politicians.
This is the incalculable human suffering and death brought about by those who coerced the country into “Social Distancing.”
Physically; emotionally; psychologically; spiritually; socially—the real crisis, the real existential crisis, confronting all of us is not some virus from which 99.6%-99.9% of those who contract it recover, but the reduction of America to a giant internment camp and its citizens to its prisoners.
It is the mandatory “quarantining,” or “lockdown,” of America that comprises the greatest of all “public health” crises.
Governors, like (#not) my governor, Phil Murphy of New Jersey, style themselves war-time executives.  They incessantly appropriate the rhetoric of war to justify their draconian decrees.  Yet wars have and can only ever be waged against people, not viruses.  It is the residents of their states upon whom they are waging “war”—even if many of the residents are ignorant of the fact that they are the targets of a (sweeping, remarkably successful) psychological operation and the governors justify their actions in the name of “keeping people safe.”
Given the foregoing facts, it is high-time for the opponents of the Internment to take the moral high ground that is rightfully theirs.  I recommend (for now) taking at least the following two steps going forward:
(1) First, while “lockdown” is certainly a term loaded with negative connotations, we may be better advised to select the term used here, for “internment” dredges up in the collective consciousness the memory of a darker time in our history when Americans of certain backgrounds were confined to geographical regions of the country that were made into “camps.”  This is a set of circumstances that most Americans have been determined to never again replicate.  In referring to our present situation as an “internment,” perhaps more people will catch onto its ominous character.
(2) Those in conservative media, especially those on television, like, say, Fox News, should stop with the running numbers of (alleged) COVID-19 infections and deaths and, instead, focus exclusively upon the immeasurable suffering and death brought about by the Internment of 2020.  They could spend countless hours reporting on personal stories from around the country of people who have been adversely impacted by it.
Those of us who detest the Internment have all of the moral capital.
Our oppressors who have interned the country, imperiling not just hundreds of millions of Americans, but potentially billions of human beings around the planet, have none of it. 
Let’s start acting like the moral superiors on this issue that we are.
Let’s put the Great UnReason behind us once and for all.
