The COVID Scam Has Alerted Millions to the Fact That the World is Controlled by a Small Cabal of Satanist Central Bankers Who Wish to Enslave Us

Cleon Skoussen was an FBI agent for 16 years and the Police Chief of Salt Lake City for four years. His “The Naked Capitalist” distills the most shocking evidence from Quigley’s daunting 1300-page book.

At just 122 pages, “The Naked Capitalist” (1970) is a concise, lucid and absolutely convincing account of the international banker conspiracy. Historians have betrayed the public trust by largely ignoring this material.

Quigley confirms that a network of banking dynasties has, in Skousen’s words, “acquired a choke-hold on the affairs of practically the entire human race.” According to Quigley, they include “Baring, Lazard, Erlanger, Warburg, Schroder, Selingman, the Speyers, Mirabaud, Malet, and above all Rothschild and Morgan.” (Citations are from Tragedy and Hope, 51-52)

Quigley confirms that, starting with the Bank of England in 1694, these dynasties organized themselves in a system of central banks that charge their respective nations billions of dollars in interest for the privilege of using currency backed by the nations’ own credit. In other words, they have carried off a swindle of monstrous proportions.

Alleging Election Discrepancies on YouTube Will Now Result in a Strike

YouTube has started striking and suspending channels that allege “widespread fraud, errors, or glitches” changed the outcome of the 2020 US presidential election.

YouTube has been removing videos containing these claims since December 9 but initially said channels wouldn’t receive strikes when these videos are removed until after Inauguration Day on January 20, 2021.

However, like with many of the other tech giants, YouTube is now using yesterday’s protests at the US Capitol and certification of the election results as an excuse to fast track its implementation of these punishments for creators who upload videos agreeing with the sentiment of President Trump and members of his legal team who have argued that mass voter fraud swung the election in favor of the Democrats.

Biden’s Election Victory Means Acceleration of Neo-Marxist Revolution, Says Polish Ordo Iuris Lawyer

Democratic Party politicians recently claimed that they would want to replace terms such as “mother”, “father”, “son”, and “daughter” with more “gender-neutral” words such as “parent” and “child”.

The director of the Ordo Iuris Institute Center for International Law Karolina Pawlowska commented on this development, while also referring to what Joe Biden’s victory meant for Western society.

“We can unfortunately see that along with president Donald Trump’s loss in America, rapid and negative changes concerning the functioning of the political theater will take place. They are aiming to undermine basic social institutions to the whims of radical activists,” she said in the interview for portal Dorzeczy.pl.

Facial Recognition Firm Claims Antifa Infiltrated Trump Protesters Who Stormed Capitol

Trump supporters say that Antifa members disguised as one of them infiltrated the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.

A retired military officer told The Washington Times that the firm XRVision used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia Antifa members to two men inside the Senate.

The source provided the photo match to The Times.

One has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer. Many Antifa members promote anarchy through violence and want the end of America in favor of a Stalinist-state. “No more USA at all” is a protest chant.

If They Can Do it to Us, They Can Do it to You

What we are looking at here is a vast scheme to impose a global government on us while maintaining the illusion that nations are governed by themselves. Now they have the technology to dictate the results of any election, anywhere. A manufactured consent of the governed. And if they can seal the deal here in America, they can do it anywhere in the world. No government, ever again, will need to worry about public support for its agenda. The Dominion Systems voting machines will provide however many votes the tyrants need.

We are asked to believe that 80 million of us-who have not been seen or heard from since Election Day-voted for higher taxes, non-existent borders, the Green New Deal, lockdowns and face masks for as long as needed to whip us all into obedience, transgender, sweetheart deals for Communist China, and every other lunatic project that Far Left Crazy can imagine.

No, we did not vote for those things. We voted to re-elect our president who, without the fraud, would have had a resounding victory. But our votes were canceled out. By fraud.

Do I know what to do about it? No, I don’t. We’ve never dealt with such a colossal crime before. We are asked to submit to a government that has no right to be there. I can only pray that we will not.

Laura Loomer Petitions the Supreme Court Over Social Media Censorship

Big Tech is once again being accused of antitrust practices that discriminate — but this time the charge is not coming from the EU or the US attorney general — and it has a particular twist relating to it, since it alleges political and ideological bias, instead of purely financial one, that plays a significant role, yet fall within the same category.

Namely, two US conservative figures and activists — Laura Loomer and Larry Klayman — are highlighting Google, Apple, Twitter and Facebook’s censorship actions against conservatives in terms of anti-competitive practices. The crux of their argument is that as “places of public accommodation” they are not legally allowed to play favorite and censor any type of political content, including that coming from conservatives.

Specifically, the filing says that the case against Big Tech concerns their “well-documented and publicized anti-competitive pattern and practice of suppressing and censoring conservative content.”

The pair are petitioning the US Supreme Court to grant review and allow a jury trial of their previous class actions suit — dismissed by a lower court — to now proceed.

‘Pence Didn’t Have the Courage to Protect Our Country’ — President Trump Tears Into Mike Pence as Patriots Storm Capitol Building

President Trump blasted Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday afternoon.

Pence rebuffed President Trump’s call to reject Biden’s electors.

“It is my considered judgement that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence said.

The President ripped into Pence for not having the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and Constitution.

“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!” Trump said.

The CDC Now Telling Airlines Who to DENY Boarding Privileges So the Vaccine Industry Can Determine Who Gets to Fly

If you thought you’d never see a time come in America where people wouldn’t be allowed to travel unless they were vaccinated against a virus that may not even be around in a year, think again.

That day has come.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with authoritarians in mostly Democrat-run states, are now essentially putting the vaccine industry in control over who will get to fly in the very near future and who will get denied, the U.S. Constitution’s ‘right to travel’ guarantee be damned.

A whiny Washington Post story published Dec. 28 that plays up the fear porn aspect of COVID-19 (because the goal of the statists including the mainstream media is ultimate control over the masses) nevertheless details how the CDC is informing airlines who can and cannot fly based on whether they’ve tested positive for the virus.

“This morning we began erecting a 7-foot non-scalable fence,” McCarthy said. “These personnel and these security measures will be in place for no less than the next 30 days.”

Czechoslovak Communists Planned to Infiltrate the British Royal Family

In the 1970s, the Czechoslovak communists sought to infiltrate the British royal family, the British The Sun daily reported, referring to State Security documents.

The communist spy was Captain Bohumil Karkan, code-named Krupský, and his target was Princess Margaret’s husband Anthony Armstrong-Jones, known as Lord Snowdon. Krupský was to meet him twice in the 1970s during the Cold War.

According to The Sun, Krupský acted as the official representative of the Czech embassy, and Armstrong-Jones, the brother-in-law of Queen Elizabeth II, agreed to meet at Kensington Palace, where he even gave the spy his telephone number.

Islamic State Jihadi Bought Sex Slaves With Welfare Money He Got From France

Lord, what fools these Infidels be.

Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).

The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:

“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)’“ (Bukhari 4.53.388)

UK jihad preacher Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:

“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”

“Islamic State: a French jihadist bought sex slaves thanks to consumer credits in France and the services of the CAF,” translated from “État Islamique : un djihadiste français aurait acheté des esclaves sexuelles grce à des crédits à la consommation en France et les prestations de la CAF,” Fdesouche, January 4, 2021 (thanks to Mason).

UK Police Fine Citizens for Lockdown Breach Instagram Posts, Want New Powers to Enter Homes

Never forget: George Orwell was an Englishman — even if his early, post-WW2, now widely famous and extremely dystopian sci-fi was definitely born in the wake of the 1940s and the trauma of the war.

But the things going on in his homeland today bring into question if this visionary might not have merely been “projecting” some seeds of the authoritarianism he saw around him, onto some more simple, and comfortable, targets, like the nascent Communist bloc over in the East of Europe of the time.

Well — that human rights-suppressing bloc has now been gone for decades — but instead, in this day and age, a woman in England’s Lake District is reporting that local police are basically going wild in an attempt to control coronavirus lockdown decrees (often erroneously described in media as “laws”) by making threats of money fines and generally disturbing people’s everyday lives and peace of mind.

India Bans Government-Run Schools From Teaching About Islam, Converts Them to Regular Education Institutions

In India as almost everywhere else worldwide, there has been a problem with madrassas spreading the jihad ideology. Madrassas have been referred to as “Islamic military camps” and “Islamic guerilla camps.”

India however, did not mention jihad teaching in madrassas as one of the reasons for its move to secularize them. This was likely done in order to avoid further accusations of “Islamophobia” and any provocation with neighboring Pakistan. Education Minister Himanta Biswa “positioned the law as a move to empower the Muslim community. He said it would ensure ‘a right to equal education for all children and eases the path to higher education.’“

“Indian state bans government-run Islamic schools from teaching religious scripture”, CNN, December 31, 2020.

China Seizes on U.S. Capitol Riots to Justify Crackdown in Hong Kong

The Communist Chinese government seized on yesterday’s riots in the U.S. Capitol to justify its brutal crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong.

CCP government mouthpiece the Global Times posted images of chaos from both riots to highlight western media double standards in offering tacit support for the unrest in Hong Kong while denouncing what happened in Capitol Hill as an “insurrection.”

Farage: European Union’s Greed is Helping Communist China ‘Take Over the World’

In response to the mass arrests of pro-democracy activists and politicians in Hong Kong, British politicians called on the European Union to abandon the investment pact it struck with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), including Brexit leader Nigel Farage who said that “Brussels’ greed is helping the regime to take over the world.”

On Wednesday, 1,000 Hong Kong Police officers carried out raids across the city, arresting 53 activists and politicians for alleged ‘subversive behaviour’, which was criminalised by the Beijing-backed national security law in the former British colony last year.

Hong Kong Press Groups Hit Out at Order to Turn Over Materials Amid ‘Subversion’ Arrests

Journalists’ groups have condemned orders to four Hong Kong media organizations from the city’s national security police requiring them to hand over materials linked to the arrests of dozens of pro-democracy activists for “subversion.”

The Hong Kong Journalists’ Association (HKJA) said it was “extremely concerned” about the orders handed to independent news websites Stand News and InMedia, jailed media magnate Jimmy Lai’s Next Digital, and its subsidiary newspaper the Apple Daily.

The outlets have seven days to comply with the orders, which came as national security police arrested 53 opposition politicians and rights campaigners linked to a democratic primary in July, which the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) deemed “subversive.”

Germany Requires a Woman on Every Listed Company’s Board

The German government approved legislation on Wednesday requiring companies listed on the DAX stock exchange to delegate at least one female member to their board of directors. The measure affects large companies with at least three members on their boards.

The introduction of the measure was preceded by many years of political bargaining between the parties forming the German governing coalition, according to Hungarian news outlet Pénzcsinalók. The German Social Democrats (SPD) initiated the adoption of the current legislation, but Angela Merkel’s party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), has so far opposed state interference in corporate affairs.

The ‘Great Reset’ Is About Expanding Government Power and Suppressing Liberty

World Economic Forum Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab has proposed using the overreaction to coronavirus to launch a worldwide “Great Reset.” This Great Reset is about expanding government power and suppressing liberty worldwide.

Schwab envisions an authoritarian system where big business acts as a partner with the government. Big business would exercise its government-granted monopoly powers to maximize value for “stakeholders,” instead of shareholders. Stakeholders include the government, international organizations, the business itself, and “civil society.”

Of course, government bureaucrats and politicians, together with powerful special interests, will decide who are, and are not stakeholders, what is in stakeholders’ interest, and what steps corporations must take to maximize stakeholder value. People’s own wishes are not the priority.

The Great Reset will dramatically expand the surveillance state via real-time tracking. It will also mandate that people receive digital certificates in order to travel and even technology implanted in their bodies to monitor them.

  1. “Disaster for Farmers as Closed Borders and a Million People on Jobkeeper Leaves $39million Worth of Australian Crops to Go to Waste — Sparking Calls to Fly Over Thousands of Pacific Island Workers”
    Fairly sure Australia has plenty of unemployed that could be driven from one farm to the next and collect crops. While some produce would go to waste because they’re not as skilled as professionals, at least it wouldn’t all go to waste.

  2. Trump now speak about transition of power (smoothly, orderly, seamlessly), but just 2 days ago he said he would have never surrendered.

    https://rumble.com/vcj3a3-president-trump-addresses-the-nation-on-capitol-hill-siege.html?mref=22lbp&mrefc=2

    I do not know if this video is not fake or not, but in the video, someone with similar voice and similar face of trump, claim that trump himself called the feds (who actually killed his supporters (the girl) in capitol hill); the supporters who were just directed by him on capitol hill at the end of his public speech.

    On the conclusion of the video he said “to all of my wonderful supporters: I know you are disappointed”. Of course. After saying the electoral process of certification is a fraud and they stole the vote, why did he accept the fake defeat and concede the transfer ?

  3. Well, if the greatest woman in history, Michelle Obama, wants Trump banned everywhere, then it must be done! All Hail Michelle!

  4. Don’t burn it all down, comrades.
    We want 2024 preezy of the steezy Stacy Abrams and VP Whoopi Cushion Goldberg to build Wakanda back better.
    Forward!

    • and google and apple are attempting to shut down parler by removing their apps that give access to it.

      Really, folks, Satan is working overtime in the democrat party. I think that Satan is head of the DNC.
