All Hail the Conquering Central Bankers… or Else

Authored by Tom Luongo via Gold, Goats, ‘n Guns blog

If you are unclear what’s happening, frankly, you aren’t paying attention. The central banks, at the urging of the World Economic Forum, have come from behind the shadows to assert their will over the world.

The Rapidly Failing EU

Authored by Alasdair Macleod via GoldMoney.com

It is not widely realised that the EU concept is on its last legs. The bureaucratic inefficiencies and bad leadership were fully exposed last week over the inability of the EU to distribute vaccines and the attempts to blame everyone else. But a larger problem is hidden in the euro structure, comprised of banking and TARGET2 settlement systems.

This article discusses the precarious financial position of the commercial banks and the gaming of the TARGET2 system by national regulators to hide bad debts. The bad debt situation is now set to deteriorate at a faster pace thanks to the economic consequences of coronavirus lockdowns and is not helped by lack of vaccines, which defers the return to economic normality.

It is no exaggeration to conclude that the failure of its settlement system will bring down the ECB and the national central banks. The ECB will be gone, and NCBs will reform to administer new national currencies — there can be no other outcome.

Bill Gates and Neo-Feudalism: A Closer Look at Farmer Bill

Bill Gates has quietly made himself the largest owner of farmland in the United States. For a man obsessed with monopoly control, the opportunity to also dominate food production must seem irresistible.

“Gates has a Napoleonic concept of himself, an appetite that derives from power and unalloyed success, with no leavening hard experience, no reverses.” — Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson, presiding judge in the Gates/Microsoft antitrust-fraud case

The global lockdowns that Bill Gates helped orchestrate and cheerlead have bankrupted more than 100,000 businesses in the U.S. alone and plunged a billion people into poverty and deadly food insecurity that, among other devastating harms, kill 10,000 African children monthly — while increasing Gates’ wealth by $20 billion. His $133 billion fortune makes him the world’s fourth wealthiest man.

Gates has been using that newfound cash to expand his power over global populations by buying devalued assets at fire-sale prices and maneuvering for monopoly control over public health, privatizing prisons, online education and global communications while promoting digital currencies, high tech surveillance, data harvesting systems and artificial intelligence.

For a man obsessed with monopoly control, the opportunity to also dominate food production must seem irresistible.

Explosive if True: “I’m a Clinical Lab Scientist, C19 is Fake, Wake Up America”

I have a PhD in virology and immunology. I’m a clinical lab scientist and have tested 1500 “supposed” positive Covid 19 samples collected here in S. California. When my lab team and I did the testing through Koch’s postulates and observation under a SEM (scanning electron microscope), we found NO Covid in any of the 1500 samples.

What we found was that all of the 1500 samples were mostly Influenza A and some were influenza B, but not a single case of Covid, and we did not use the B.S. PCR test. We then sent the remainder of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a few of the University of California labs and they found the same results as we did, NO COVID. They found influenza A and B. All of us then spoke to the CDC and asked for viable samples of COVID, which CDC said they could not provide as they did not have any samples. We have now come to the firm conclusion through all our research and lab work, that the COVID 19 was imaginary and fictitious.

The flu was called Covid and most of the 225,000 dead were dead through co-morbidities such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, emphysema etc. and they then got the flu which further weakened their immune system and they died. I have yet to find a single viable sample of Covid 19 to work with. We at the 7 universities that did the lab tests on these 1500 samples are now suing the CDC for Covid 19 fraud. the CDC has yet to send us a single viable, isolated and purifed sample of Covid 19.

Now the Left is Forced to Manufacture White Supremacists

Vast swaths of Americans, as you well know, are now classified as racists, thanks to the Democrats’ penchant for word salads. We are informed that if you supported Trump in any capacity, you are automatically a white supremacist. This blanket branding worked fine when the fake news showed carefully excised pockets of white people at rallies.

However, an inconvenient truth of the MAGA movement is that it has an infuriating number of non-white enthusiasts. At first Democrats ignored them; and when that became impossible — when it became clear there was an enormous surge of minority support for MAGA — then the left had to do something — anything — to paint these traitors with the same broad brush as they branded Caucasians.

Under the category of “You can’t make this stuff up,” I would like to present you with the latest explanation for Trump’s popularity among blacks, Latinos, Asians and other minorities: “Multi-racial whiteness.”

Time Claims a Secret Cabal Manipulated the 2020 Election to Stop Trump, And People Have Questions

This seems like the sort of thing you don’t say out loud but, like a serial killer, many in politics are just too absorbed in their own egos to not try to take credit for their deeds.

TIME wrote a very interesting piece making some very alarming claims. Namely, that a secret cabal banded together across the country to stop Donald Trump from winning re-election. This included everything from manipulating media coverage to getting election laws changed, at least according to TIME’s account.

Yeah, this seems like a pretty big deal to me, and nakedly undemocratic, at least if you care about that sort of thing. Politics is inherently manipulative on some level, I suppose, but working to change election laws and quenching the flow of information to affect an election is a bit past your typical bluster on the stump.

Of course, none of this is especially groundbreaking to those who have been paying attention. For all the chatter about “dark money” and “interfering in elections,” it’s always been those on the left (and that includes the “right-wing” Chamber of Commerce mentioned here) who have had a no holds barred approach to winning. Given the control over popular culture, financial institutions, and political influence operations that the left wields, it’s hardly shocking they’d use every lever to defeat Trump.

The Czech Constitutional Court has announced a fundamental change in the electoral law, which will impact the autumn parliamentary elections.

It will now be enough for coalitions consisting of several parties or movements to receive only 5 percent of the vote to get into the Chamber of Deputies.

Over 30 airports and seaports across the UK are bidding to become freeports, otherwise known as free trade zones, in a post-Brexit trade shakeup that could see 10 tax and regulation-lite or free regions created.

The UK government is seeking to “turbocharge” the regions in the post-Brexit economy through the creation of ten so-called freeports, an opportunity potentially so lucrative for the regions involved the business-focussed Financial Times reports that 30 ports, airports, towns and cities have applied to be considered.

Germany: Activist Against ‘Anti-Muslim Racism’ And ‘Right-Wing Extremism’ Arrested Over Backyard Pipe Bomb

But remember: “right-wing extremism,” not “leftist extremism,” and certainly not jihad terror, is the real threat.

Leftist Politician Praises Islamic Al-Andalus, Accuses Spanish Monarchy of ‘Genocide’

Isabel Franco: “In Al-Ándalus three cultures coexisted. It was the Spanish monarchy that caused an enormous invasion, genocide and concealment.”

What will be the outcome of this cultural self-hatred? National destruction, and it won’t be long now.

For the reality of al-Andalus, which is quite far from what Isabel Franco describes, see The History of Jihad.

Norway: Muslima Repatriated From Syrian Refugee Camp for Humanitarian Reasons Charged With Involvement in Terror Org

Anyone who might have objected to her repatriation on national security grounds would have been derided as a “racist, bigoted, Islamophobe.” Maybe now such people will begin to be watched by authorities for signs of “far-right extremism.” Meanwhile, as this article shows, the real terrorists don’t feel any sense of gratitude to the Infidels who aid them. Such kindness is seen only as weakness.

Sweden: 829 Hate Crimes Against Churches, Media Blames ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ And ‘Mentally Ill’

There is another possible culprit, found in large numbers in Rinkeby, Tensta and Kista. These are people whose holy book teaches them that Christianity is a perverted version of the true teachings of Jesus, that Christians are unbelievers for believing Jesus to be divine (Qur’an 5:17, 5:72), that Jesus is not the Son of God and Allah curses those who say otherwise (Qur’an 9:30), and that it is false to say Jesus was crucified (Qur’an 4:157). But such people are not even considered as having any involvement in this, despite the fact that they have been involved in the desecration of numerous churches elsewhere in Europe. To raise such a possibility, even to open it up to be disproven, wouldn’t fit the narrative. It would be “Islamophobia.” It would be “hate.”

Transparency International in Joint Attack on Hungary With the European Commission

The international NGO, once known for its fiercely independent attitude to measuring levels of corruption across the globe, has joined ranks with the European Commission in its criticism of the Hungarian government. In a press conference on Jan. 28, Transparency International Hungary’s executive director, Martin József Péter, blasted the Hungarian government for allegedly using the pandemic as a cover for introducing measures that would weaken the rule of law in the country. In its annual Corruption Perception Index, Hungary ranks at the bottom among EU countries, in a joint last place with Romania and Bulgaria.

After seemingly abandoning most meaningful criteria of independence or impartiality, Transparency International had in October 2020 published an article based on a report by one of its main financial backers, the European Commission, in which they formulated a damning opinion about the state of rule of law in Hungary.

UK: One Week Prison Term for Extinction Rebellion Court Glue Protester

AN EXTINCTION Rebellion protester from Somerset who glued himself to a pane of glass inside a courtroom has been given a seven-day prison sentence for contempt of court.

Arainn Hawker, 49, was charged with wilfully obstructing a highway during a large demonstration at Oxford Circus in October 2019.

During his trial at City of London Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, Hawker glued his hand to a pane of glass surrounding the dock before recording the court on his phone.

In the livestream shared on social media, Hawker told his trial: “The courts are in contempt of human rights and civil justice.

“I believe the courts have completely failed to come up with an adequate response to the climate and ecological emergency from the magistrates not accepting the legal defence of necessity right through to the CPS prosecuting,” he added.

Twitter Reverses After Suspending Major South African News Outlet Over Bill Gates Article

Twitter blocked the accounts of a South African newsweekly and several journalists because of a story about coronavirus vaccines. The social media company said that the censorship was an error and blamed its increased reliance on AI in content moderation.

On January 30, Twitter suspended the account of The Continent, a South African newsweekly. The reason given was “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”

The suspension of the account came shortly after the outlet published a story quoting tech billionaire Bill Gates, saying that coronavirus vaccines’ patents should not be removed — something that would make vaccine production expensive especially for poor countries.

But the statement was true.

Norway: 16-Year-Old Muslim Migrant Arrested for Plotting Jihad Massacre

“According to the VG newspaper, PST believes that the the teen is an Islamic State supporter who came to Norway as part of a family reunification.”

No effort was made to determine if he had any jihadist sentiments. That would have been “Islamophobic.”

“In recent years we have seen youngsters, including kids as young as 13 or 14, being radicalised in both far-right circles and radical Islamist circles.”

It is fashionable today, and part of an insidious agenda, to claim that there is a “far-right” terror threat that is equal to or greater than the jihad threat. This helps jittery Leftist officials avoid charges of “Islamophobia” by keeping them from having to focus solely on jihad terrorists. It also provides a pretext for silencing, destroying and likely eventually incarcerating those who have been smeared as “far-right” for years simply for opposing jihad violence and Sharia oppression. When one does not have the terror threat one wants, or the terrorists, one simply creates both. Meanwhile, the real terrorists keep at it, as this article demonstrates.

Spain: Twitter Censors Police Data on African Migrant Violence in Catalonia

Twitter recently decided to suspend the account of Spanish conservative-liberal party Vox for a week. The reason was a tweet that cited police sources saying migrant minors are responsible for 93 percent of the complaints filed with police while only making up 0.2 percent of Catalonia’s population. The tweet also pointed out that the majority of the minors came from the Maghreb.

The entry was accompanied by a #stopislamization hashtag. It did not contain any threats or calls for violence — nothing that even an overzealous political correct censor could consider hate speech. The data came from police statistics; it is hard to see numbers as troublemakers or xenophobic. They simply reveal the sad truth about the criminal inclinations of young arrivals from the Maghreb (North Africa) who conflict with the law much more often than indigenous Europeans.

Leftist censors seem to be insulted by math because it mercilessly shows the failure of multiculturalism.

    • Would be a great coup for some gifted hacker to hack the Impostor-in-Chief’s teleprompter and upload some truthful phrases given his proclivity to unquestioningly read aloud anything thrust into his field of vision. Kind of like the scene from Reality Bites where Winona Ryder’s character alters the text of the script her bitter old geezer boss reads aloud to the tv audience.

      I can imagine some choice truthful phrases such as “I love to sniff the hair of little girls”, or “I am 100% a CCP puppet and the election victory was the result of the greatest voter fraud organization in American history”. And last but not least, “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself”.

  1. Mardi Gras is evil. and New Orleans has the stench of voodoo and anti-Christ behavior. i have been there several times in the past and it gave off evil, dark vibes with all the hookers and sexual deviants parading around.
