BlackRock authored the Bailout Plan Before There Was a Crisis — Now it’s Been Hired by Three Central Banks to Implement the Plan

It’s called “Going Direct.” That’s the financial bailout plan designed and authored by former central bankers now on the payroll at BlackRock, an investment manager of $7 trillion in stock and bond funds. The plan was rolled out in August 2019 at the G7 summit of central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming — months before the public was aware of any financial crisis.

Nasdaq Tops 10,000 on Tesla Surge; Starbucks Cools Off

The stock market once again told a tale of two exchanges on Wednesday. The Nasdaq Composite(NASDAQINDEX:^COMP) had another great day, rising almost 1% and closing above 10,000 for the first time in its history. The Nasdaq 100 index did even better, gaining almost 1.5% and also climbing over the 10,000 hurdle. Yet elsewhere, market measures like the Dow and S&P 500 finished lower on the day, held back by fears about the Federal Reserve’s need to provide further monetary stimulus to try to shore up the broader economy.

Leading the Nasdaq higher on its historic day was Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), which celebrated a share-price milestone of its own. However, not every stock on the Nasdaq gained ground, and Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) in particular revealed some challenges that could hold back the coffee stock for a while.

In the absence of elected leadership and in the face of police standing by and watching lootingin Chicago, Latin gangs are protecting their local businesses and running would be looters out of their neighborhoods. It’s hard to fault them for it, but do we really want street gangs acting as law enforcement?

Because that’s what we can expect in cities that are considering abolishing their police departments—remember, the leftist and anarchist protestors want the police abolished, it’s the political wing, the Democratic Party, that substituted “defund” and is now walking even that back because it’s so vastly unpopular among their own voters.

‘Is ICE Cube Hacked?’ Even Marc Lamont Hill Calls Out the Actor and Rapper on His Anti-Semitic Posts

If you remember, former CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill left the network after, during an appearance at the U.N.’s “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” he said that “justice requires a free Palestine from the river to the sea,” a rallying cry of Hamas. So when Marc Lamont Hill calls another black man antisemitic, it carries some weight.

Ice Cube, who came up as a rapper with N.W.A. and their song “F**k tha Police,” slowly morphed into the family-friendly figure who starred in such family comedies as “Are We There Yet?” He’s been getting a lot of attention lately for his Twitter feed, which is filling up with some really anti-Semitic images.

Johnathan Latham: Bill Gates’ Foundation Working With DARPA on Gene Editing

In an interview with James Corbett of the Corbett Report, Johnathan Latham discusses The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s disturbing ties to the United States government. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) an agency of the Department of Defense is working closely with Gates’ Foundation to introduce genetic modifications into various species.

Oh, and the United Nations is also involved. What could possibly go wrong? All wrapped up, it looks like everyone who wants power now has it and nothing is being done stop the destruction upon humanity. The few are dominating the many and most won’t look past their own biases to see what’s really going on.

In his 2017 article, “Gates Foundation Hired PR Firm to Manipulate UN Over Gene Drives,” Latham describes how Gates, the UN, and DARPA want to manipulate human genetics to get the desired outcome in a child. “It allows you to drive populations extinct in the longer term.”

Other than the Gates Foundation, the funding for the destructive gene editing comes from the United States government. DARPA is neck-deep in horrific experiments, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they have a hand in splicing genetics.

While we are supposed to be focused solely on the riots, which we should all know by now that that’s what the NWO elitists want you to focus on (choose sides, divide, look over here) the gene drive editing agenda moves forward unbeknownst to those blinded by the mainstream media. As Corbett said:

Prof Refuses to Postpone Final Exam for Protests, And Guess What Happens

The University of California, Los Angeles placed a lecturer on leave last week after he allegedly refused “give black students special treatment” and postpone a final exam.

Klein was apparently responding to a request to make accommodations for black students in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis May 5 after an officer knelt on his neck for more than 8 minutes, video of the incident showed.

Klein has said that he was following his direct supervisor’s orders when he refused a request to postpone the exam, NBC reported.

The MSM is Not Giving Up “The Second Wave” Narrative

Government puppets, the talking heads in media, are not giving up on the “second wave” of the coronavirus narrative. This is something we should all be aware of because if we are not, they will try to use this to further decimate the livelihoods of people and lock everyone down again.

Many have said that there will be a second wave of infections, and the MSM has ramped up their reporting on this lately. The right is blaming the protesters of police brutality while the left is blaming the protesters of the first lockdown. Regardless, there is a lot of blame and the only thing media can agree on is that there will be another wave, and more force, violence, and interference in lives will be necessary to control the public.

The media needs your focus to be on “fearing the second wave,” and they’ve started the propaganda machine early. Maybe. Unless they try going to blame the protests for the “second wave” to get those on all sides of every issue ticked off and further divided. We know they operate on a “divide, conquer, and rule” dichotomy. This is a massive psychological operation. A massive game of chess. The only way to win is to not play. If we all stand up, their little game is over.

This is Exactly What is Going to Happen if Police Departments Are “Disbanded” or “Defunded” All Across America…

By now, you have probably heard that the Minneapolis City Council plans to completely disband the Minneapolis Police Department, and other major cities are considering significant cuts to the funding that their police departments receive. Needless to say, such moves will only make our streets even more unsafe, but a lot of people out there are so upset about police brutality that they are ready to support such drastic measures. In the aftermath of 9/11, police departments all over the country were heavily militarized, and thousands of troops returning from our wars overseas were hired as officers. This shift in policing culture caused enormous problems, and complaints about police brutality soared. But instead of reforming law enforcement, many have now decided that the best approach would be to get rid of the police altogether.

Those that advocate for such an approach seem to believe that most people are inherently good, and that if the police are removed from the equation that we could build a police-free utopia where we all learn to get along with one another just fine.

But there is just one huge problem.

People are not inherently good. That has been true all throughout human history, and it is most definitely true today.

Two Elderly Men Claim Hospital Switched Them at Birth Nearly 80 Years Ago

Two men discovered they were switched at birth in a West Virginia hospital nearly 80 years ago, a devastating mix-up that caused “a lifetime of consequences,” according to their new lawsuit.

John William Carr III and Jackie Lee Spencer were both born Aug. 29, 1942, at St. Joseph Hospital in Buckhannon — but were sent home with the wrong families, according to their suit, filed Friday in Monongalia County Circuit Court.

The shocking incident came to light last year when Spencer took DNA tests as part of his 50-year quest to try to trace the man he assumed was his father who had abandoned the family before his birth, according to court papers.

Wendy Mesley Suspended From Hosting After Using ‘Careless’ Language in Discussing Racial Issue

CBC News host Wendy Mesley has been suspended from hosting, pending an investigation, after she said she “used a word that should never be used” during an editorial discussion about race.

“Last Thursday, senior management within CBC News were made aware of an incident involving Wendy Mesley. While we investigate further, Wendy will not be hosting The Weekly,” CBC’s head of public affairs, Chuck Thompson, said in a statement. “Respecting the privacy rights of our employees, we have nothing more to add.”

News of Mesley’s suspension was first reported by Canadaland.

Mesley, whose program, The Weekly, aired on Sunday without her, took to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize publicly. “It was not aimed at anyone, I was quoting a journalist we were intending to interview on a panel discussion about coverage of racial inequality,” she wrote.

“I was careless with my language and wrong to say it. Regardless of my intention, I hurt people, and for that, I am very sorry. I am also deeply ashamed.

“I immediately apologized to my co-workers, and recognize this is a word that no one like me should ever use. I made a big mistake and promise to change my behaviour.”

Neither Mesley nor Thompson clarified what word she used.

India: These Nine Incidents Since 2017 of Rapes, Abductions and Forced Conversions of Hindus Characterises Haryana’s Mewat as “Mini-Pakistan”

Amidst the coronavirus crisis in the country, Mewat of Haryana has hogged the limelight after an investigation report by 4-member team headed by former Justice Pawan Kumar asserted that Mewat is gradually turning into a graveyard for Hindus, especially Dalits. The report said that the rapes of girls, the kidnapping of women, thrashing and killing of Dalit residents with impunity and forced religious conversions have become par for the course.

The investigation team led by former justice Pawan Kumar made scathing observations on the plight of Dalits at the hands of Muslims in Mewat. In this article, we present a few of those incidents that possibly shaped the team’s views on the deteriorating conditions in Mewat, which in reality not only raise questions on the treatment of Dalits in Mewat but also of the democracy that condones and empowers the oppressors into perpetuating their behaviour.

OpIndia got in touch with Justice Pawan Kumar who had gone to Mewat himself to investigate the case and bring the reality of the atrocities committed against the Dalits to the fore. Justice Pawan Kumar said that while speaking to the Hindus, especially Dalits, in the villages, he was able to get back first-hand information on how badly they are oppressed in the hands of Muslims in these areas. Incidents of rape of Hindu and Dalit girls, the kidnapping of brides, forced conversion, assault on Dalits have become common in the villages in Mewat, said Kumar.

Federal Judge in New York Rules ICE Courthouse Arrests Are Illegal

For years, state and local officials have argued that when ICE officers intercept undocumented immigrants at courthouses — where they are making appearances as defendants, witnesses or victims — it endangers public safety by making it harder to prosecute crimes.

ICE has defended the arrests, saying apprehending people in controlled settings is safer than arresting them on the streets.

Dr. Rashid Buttar: “They Are Trying to Divide People!”

Dr. Rashid Buttar, who has come out against the totalitarian dictates over the economy in response to the coronavirus plandemic, says the plan now, is to divide the population so we don’t unite together to tackle the problem. A global psychological operation is taking place right now and many are still falling for it.

Buttar has long questioned the elitists and the ruling class who control YouTube and other platforms for the censorship that’s running rampant today. “Why would anybody censor facts and truth?” asks Buttar. Well, the truth is they need a certain narrative to be parrotted and repeated so we remain under the control of rulers. Freethinkers are impossible to enslave.

“Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.” — Robert A. Heinlein

Facebook Fact-Checks Who Statements, But Also Uses Who to Fact-Check Others

2020 has (so far) been marked by two major crises, one global, the other local to the US; and while the first, that of the coronavirus epidemic, is now overshadowed in some media reports by the more recent one — it’s still the one to watch.

The way the pandemic has disrupted and rearranged economies and lifestyles around the world will only become apparent in the time ahead — and when that happens, some will no doubt want to go back and investigate how the crisis played out in the media at its peak, and even how the media influenced it.

But it looks like whatever record Facebook content provides for that future reporter — it won’t be particularly useful.

The social network that “speaks for” over 2 billion people is mired in attempts to strike some sort of artificial balance of censorship — while all it seems to achieve is even more damage to its reputation as a platform/publisher.

Gender-Critical Feminist Professor Removed for Making Students Feel “Unsafe”

“I think trans ideology and trans activism poses serious dangers to women and girls. I don’t think “sex work” should be decriminalized; I think the Nordic model, which continues to criminalize the buying of sex (but not the selling of it), is the best policy approach to prostitution. I think biological sex is germane to women’s oppression and I think gender is a system that legitimates women’s oppression. I don’t take a celebratory attitude to gender identity, but a critical one. You don’t have to agree with me on any of these points, but you are going to be exposed to these perspectives at length during the course.”

This is how University of Alberta professor Kathleen Lowrey begins her Anthropology of Women class. She lays out the inspiration for the course, makes a point to tell her students that they are certainly not obliged to agree with her views, and lets students know they still have the option of dropping the course if they don’t feel it’s the best fit for them.

Pro-life volunteers Bevelyn Beatty and Edmee Chavannes, founders of At the Well Ministries, are crying foul after being handcuffed outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on May 30th.

The two activists were standing on the sidewalk praying outside of the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Center in Manhattan when officers detained them for supposedly violating New York City’s social-distancing mayoral mandates.

Beatty pointed out what she saw as a double standard given the city’s passive response to the thousands gathering to protest the killing of George Floyd at the same time.

Prominent Scientific Journal Accuses Science of Racism

The editors of Cell, widely considered one of the most important research journals in the life sciences, have published an editorial decrying the fact that the entire discipline of science is racist. “Science has a racism problem,” it says repeatedly.

The editorial was published on Monday and was signed by “The Cell Editorial Team.” The piece accused the scientific disciplines of a wide-ranging variety of racist crimes, and offered suggestions on how to deal with them.

“We are the editors of a science journal, committed to publishing and disseminating exciting work across the biological sciences,” it begins. “We are 13 scientists. Not one of us is Black. Underrepresentation of Black scientists goes beyond our team — to our authors, reviewers, and advisory board. And we are not alone.”

Study Shows Facebook and Twitter Are Echo Chambers But Reddit and Gab Are Not

Well — who knew — a more decentralized social platform that doesn’t use algorithms to control user perspectives would be far less likely to lend itself to creating and nurturing user “echo chambers” than a centralized one — where the latter is controlled by any number of “editorializing” and algorithmic ways to promote certain content and user biases, while suppressing others and what would have otherwise provided for a naturally-arising diversity of opinion.

The effects centralized platforms like Facebook and Twitter produce is to lock people into “echo chambers” as they are presented mostly with content that confirms their existing biases. That may feel good in the moment. But it produces nothing good for them in the long term, leaving users unable to understand the world they’re living in.

(Twitter doesn’t reflect reality, kids.)

Twitch Community Twitch Kittens Boots Loyal Member for Saying People Who Menstruate Are Women

Over the last couple of weeks, there’s been a sharp rise in cancel culture with anyone who dares to challenge, criticize, or even stay silent on certain narratives being swiftly targeted for cancelation.

Now Twitch Kittens, a popular community of Twitch streamers that has over 51,000 Twitter followers and 23,000 Instagram followers, has booted one of its members, Twitch streamer mirta000, after she suggested that protestors might catch the coronavirus and tweeted that people who menstruate are women.

Twitter Bans All Links to Mercola.Com

Ever since Google started burying our site in its search results in 2019, the big brothers in Silicon Valley have teamed up to destroy natural health. Twitter is now engaging in slanderous practices to scare away readers and decrease views by about 95%…

The documentary “Plandemic” by Mikki Willis has raised the ante on internet censorship to a whole new level. Across the board, the film has been banned from social media platforms and hidden by Google. If you do an online search for it, all you find are dozens of pages with articles calling it a hoax, a fraud or the dreaded old “conspiracy theory.”

The film features Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., a cellular and molecular biologist1 whose research showed that many vaccines are contaminated with gammaretroviruses, thanks to the fact that they use viruses grown in contaminated animal cell lines.

A May 27, 2020, article2 in The Jewish Voice, which carries the telling headline, “Washington Post Journalist Advocates Censorship of Controversial Dr. Judy Mikovits Film, as Stunning Censorship Grips World,” notes:

“When The Jewish Voice posted the 20 minute preview of Dr. Judy Mikovitz’ documentary ‘Plandemic’ our website literally crashed for 24 hours straight due to huge traffic … The movie is about vaccines and pandemics and her views on Bill Gates and others. Is the 20-minute preview controversial, absolutely — is this material dangerous? Absolutely not.

It’s frightening enough that YouTube and just about every other social media platform, insisted on censoring a 20-minute preview of an unreleased documentary, but we are at a point where actual journalists are advocating for censorship. Journalists basically live by the values of the First Amendment …

In an article reporting on the take-down of the video, The Washington Post’s Silicon Valley Correspondent Elizabeth Dwoskin complained that after the coronavirus documentary Plandemic was censored on social media, some YouTube clips were telling users how to access “banned footage” from the documentary via Google Drive …

This gets even more incredible. The ‘journalist’ then brags that The Washington Post contacted Google and Google Drive took down a file featuring the trailer for the ‘Plandemic’ documentary.

In other words, the Washington Post has a writer working for them that is so vehemently anti-free speech, she contacted Google and now reports are circulating that people’s personal copies of the video are vanishing from their Google Drives! …

We are entering a terrifying new era, a world where censorship is common and the guardians of free speech — journalists, are standing up for… censorship!”

  1. Godless heathens to be pursued al the way back to Hell. What’s the news from Africa these days? Mali? Libya? The history behind Mosques?

  2. “Ever since Google started burying our site in its search results in 2019, the big brothers in Silicon Valley have teamed up to destroy natural health. Twitter is now engaging in slanderous practices to scare away readers and decrease views by about 95%…”
    Just don’t use google anymore. There are censorship-free alternatives, like duckduckgo, bitchute, etc.

    • The Blacks want us bow down and kneel down to them with one knee while the Muslim and Chinese style are even worse, would want us to bow down to them or kneel down to them with two knees, whenever they have the upper hand like Blacks.
      Anyway, it is indeed a horrible sight to be forced to kneel down by those savages.

    • It just makes it easier to identify who will bend the knee when the nationalist take over. If not, the walls and lamp posts will be busy.

    • If there are any statues deserving of being removed, Cecil Rhodes would certainly top the list.

      His role in fomenting trouble in South Africa leading to the Second Boer War, concentration camps and one of the first genocides of the modern era should have guaranteed him a special place in Hell. Business wise, he was the archetype of the modern globalist billionare scum that cannot simply be content to count their billions, but has to manipulate and stir up trouble around the world for their own perverted ends. Someone Soros and Gates can aspire to…

  3. How can so many suffer so much to live in any of these western countries? I mean the risk of contamination by history ever present. Leave asap. The rising Islamic tide with halal and slavery for all remained and retained the same for over fourteen hundred years.

  4. What if there were say, a hundred 911 level mass murdering choke holds on apparently ever Godless fiat money mad White consumers all in one day? What then? Still nothing. Removing the line between anarchy and the degenerates has consequences? Bojo Khan do.
