Birds Falling from The Sky by The Hundreds of Thousands?

Over the past month there has been a lot of buzz about birds, but perhaps the most shocking news, was the story about “hundreds of thousands of birds, possibly millions” having fallen from the sky to their death. This story was picked up by local and major news sources, but with all of the distractions, it didn’t get a lot of traction across social media platforms. I suspect that’s going to change in the weeks to come, because there are some strange anomalies with this, and I want to get out in front of this story before it grows wings.

On September 12, the Farmington Daily Times reported that 300 dead migratory birds were being examined by biologists from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico and New Mexico State University at Knox Hall on the university’s campus. In other reports, it was clarified that the large number of birds found dead at White Sands Missile Range and White Sands National Monument happened on August 20th. This was thought to be an “isolated incident” according to Martha Desmond, a professor at NMSU’s Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Ecology. That said, prior to this report, there were no reports about the birds at White Sands and the only photos show a handful of deceased birds that are said to have been collected from White Sands and other sites in Dona Ana County, New Mexico.

Desmond was joined by two NMSU graduate students and Trish Cutler, a wildlife biologist at WSMR to evaluate the carcasses. Desmond said that residents were finding birds behaving strangely and gathering in large groups before dying. Whereas the biologists suspect the wildfires and dry conditions in New Mexico may be playing a role and pushing the birds out before they were ready to migrate, Desmond made certain to allege that “climate change is affecting the abundance of insects, it’s affecting the volatility of the fires, and the scary thing is this may be an indication of the future.” There is no mention of crops and agriculture that have been vastly affected by pesticides over the years, or chemicals being pumped into the atmosphere, or all of the frequencies potentially throwing them off from decades of telecommunication waves flooding the skies, and they fail to mention that many of the “wildfires” were started by arsonists. With all of the hybrid plant life and GMO-packed foods, one wonders how much of that may impact insects and birds as well?

“It is terribly
frightening. We’ve never seen anything like this. …We’re losing probably
hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of migratory birds.”
Haven’t they?
How did she arrive at this number, when the report only indicates 300 birds,
with no prior reports, and no video footage to point to anywhere near these numbers?
Desmond also made it clear that “over 3 billion birds have died since 1970.” Is
this true? Are they all dying from “climate change?”

According to the Audubon, up to 1 billion birds die each year from window collisions alone. You know all of those high-rise hotel chains, condos, and business buildings owned by “climate change” activists such as Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg? Thousands of migrating birds have fallen to their deaths by flying into their windows. In fact, just this month, nearly 1500 birds fell to their death after crashing into skyscrapers in Philadelphia. Cats feast on 100 million birds annually, and roughly 7 million birds die each year from running into TV and radio towers in North America. In a 2005 report on the government’s U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service site, they estimated that 500 million to possibly over 1 billion birds are killed annually in the United States due to “collisions with human-made structures such as vehicles, buildings and windows, power lines, communication towers, and wind turbines; electrocutions; oil spills and other contaminants; pesticides; cat predation; and commercial fishing by-catch.” The climate change activists pushing for wind turbines can take responsibility for over 573,000 birds who die annually from the 58,000 wind turbines across the US. These are all manmade issues that have tragically taken billions of birds lives over the years. Shhh, “it’s climate change.”

It turns out that while the billionaires are screaming “climate change! Green New Deal! Birds and insects are dying everywhere!” their buildings, hotels, wind turbines, pesticides, and communication towers have actually played a huge role in the death of birds, which is par for the course with their common projection tactics. According to one report, pesticides alone are responsibly for 400,000 insect species facing extinction.

Perhaps Desmond isn’t yet caught up on the death rate of birds since 1970, as her 3 billion number falls short by billions and billions of birds. In fact, the estimated mortality rate of birds during migration in the mainland United States is 35%. It is true that bird and insect populations have declined dramatically over the past decade, but the biggest cause seems to be the destruction of natural habitats and human greed, which is a far cry from “climate change.” After all, they have to point to a source for their destruction, while they get richer by the year, and they want humanity to feel that they are at fault and need to make changes to rectify it. “Though the fires and extreme weather events are influenced by human-induced climate change, it is unlikely that the wildfires alone caused the death of thousands of birds in New Mexico,” said Jenna McCullough, a 3rd year PhD student at the University of New Mexico who has been analyzing some of the birds.

What Happened the Day After This Story Broke?

On September 13, KOB4 covered the story, again repeating “hundreds of thousands of birds” and capping it off with “this phenomenon is not normal.” In a short video, they explained how it could be related to the fires in the west as well as the drought conditions.  They also created a website called iNaturalist, requesting that if people come across any dead birds, to bag the birds and store them in a freezer, while adding info to their website so they can document all of the locations where birds are being found dead. To date, there have only been 1036 observations made, some of which appear to be cat slaughter. They have expanded their search outside of New Mexico, so that number includes dead birds found in Utah, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, California, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, and areas of Mexico. Of course, many of those states have been in the path of the fires, and it is migration season. After reviewing numerous reports, it’s unclear as to why they expanded their search to so many states, when the reports coming in were all in New Mexico, with exception of a small number in Colorado. Perhaps an attempt to beef up the numbers or create a citizen on-the-ground involvement to produce a spread of information and fear mongering stories?

Allison Salas, a Black Lives Matter supporter, and one of the women involved in creating the iNaturalist project to track the bird deaths, refers to the incidents as a “climate crisis” in her tweets. But, The Guardian report quotes Salas saying “It could be something completely unknown to us. The fact that we’re finding hundreds of these birds dying, just kind of falling out of the sky is extremely alarming … The volume of carcasses that we have found has literally given me chills.” If not the fires or “climate change” what might she be referring to?

That same day, Austin Fisher, a journalist who pronouns himself as he/him, happened to be on a hike in Velarde, New Mexico, and captured video footage of a few hundred birds who were lying dead. His story was immediately picked up by CNN, the NYT, Yahoo News, and numerous others, with headlines stating that “hundreds of thousands of migratory birds have been found dead.” Not long after this went viral, Fisher set his twitter to “protected tweets.”

Over the course of the next couple days, the story came out of The Guardian, Daily Mail, NY Daily News, Ecowatch, Wired, Popular Mechanics, Business Insider, Yale.edu, climate change publications, and a mass of other local and alternative news sources. One of the first ones to cover the story from a larger news source, was CNN writer Alaa Elassar, who has also written for Storyful, has been retweeted by Barack Obama, has given a speech at TedX on a “new American dream” that focuses on her hardships of being mistreated here, and has published several stories on Michelle and Barack Obama.

We
now have reports of 300 at White Sands Missile Range, 300 found by Fisher in Velarde,
a few dozen in Colorado, roughly 1000 on the website they created, and we’ll
throw in another 1000 just for good measure. This simply isn’t adding up to “hundreds
of thousands, maybe even millions, and we are looking at the higher end of
that,” as Desmond stated. Curious.

On
September 13, Desmond said that they are sending the specimens to be analyzed
by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service forensics lab in Oregon and the National
Wildlife Health Center in Wisconsin, which could take several weeks. There are
no recent reports on the autopsies performed, so a breaking story could be
right around the corner. Will it be fires, climate change, or some new flu they
discovered? Despite no video or photo evidence beyond a couple hundred birds,
everyone is to believe there have been hundreds of thousands, if not millions
of birds falling from the sky to their death, and that this is all a strange
phenomenon.

First Report of Bird Deaths Was at White Sands Missile Range in NM

All reports state that the first cluster of birds
found dead, took place at White Sands Missile Range and White Sands National
Monument on August 20, where over 300 birds “mysteriously” fell from the sky to
their death. Given this, the following information may or may not be relevant
to the birds specifically but is most certainly newsworthy.

In October 2019, the DOD published a press release about directed energy weapons moving closer to prime time.

On July 1, 2019, Military & Aerospace Electronics reported on “Directed-energy weapons taking big steps forward” and showed a photo of The Demonstrator Laser Weapon System at White Sands Missile Range which are high energy lasers being developed and tested by the Air Force Research Laboratory. They also showed the Raytheon advanced high-power microwave and high-energy laser at White Sands. This report covers quite a bit of information pertaining to where the US, China, and Russia are with direct-energy weapons use, which already in full swing, and experiments that White Sands had been running. High-energy lasers can be used in special operations to attack power grids, high-value infrastructure, and moving vehicles.

In August 2020, the DOD published a press release about the framework for advancing directed energy weapons, along with their initiatives.

On August 20, 2020, the day the birds “fell from the sky” over White Sands Missile Range, it isn’t known as to whether they were running directed-energy experiments that day. One report shows that one of the tests they were running was intercepting high-speed tactical ballistic and cruise missiles.

On September 16, 2020, Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced that China and Russia have weaponized space through killer satellites and directed energy weapons designed to exploit and weaken the US military.

While it is suggested that the fires may have something to do with the birds dying from smoke inhalation and flight confusion, aside from actual police arrests of arsonists starting some of the fires, is it plausible that directed energy weapons may have played a role as well? There is certainly enough evidence to raise this question. And, if a few hundred birds really did “fall to their death” at White Sands, what tests or experiments may have been running around that timeframe, as it seems quite odd that White Sands would be ground zero.  

What Are They Really Up To?

Though tragic, this isn’t a new phenomenon, nor is it out of the norm during migration season, with exception of perhaps the fires having an impact on the birds. Throughout the years, there have been large clusters of migratory birds found dead across the globe. Millions and millions of birds die each year during migration in the US. In 2011, as many as 5,000 birds fell to their death in Beebe, Arkansas after crashing into buildings, trees, and lampposts on New Year’s Eve. Some folks took this as a sign of the end of the world nearing, yet here we are.

The real threat to wildlife are the rich “philanthropist” climate change activists who are pointing people in the wrong direction, while relishing in their greed as they erect more buildings, spray chemicals into our atmosphere, invest in and promote pesticides, and fly around in their private jets to their multiple million-dollar luxury homes and lavish hotel chains. Sure, humanity certainly plays a role on the impact on wildlife, but the greedy wants everyone to believe these events are happening due to “climate change” so they can continue with their endeavors and no one is the wiser. Meanwhile, natural habitats are being destroyed, and whereas these same billionaire “philanthropists” will have people believe they are serving the “over population” issue with their structures, the reality is that the US has hit an historic 80-year-low growth rate.

Mislead and misdirect is the name of their game. Shaming and
guilting humanity is their tool. If people don’t start doing the research,
making observations, and checking into the reality zone, these rulers will
continue to rule and diminish the life of humanity and wildlife. Yes, birds are
dying during migration, and the fires likely played a role in this, but “hundreds
of thousands and likely millions” while pushing the “climate change” narrative,
is a tale tell sign of misdirection. Are they amplifying this story to push
their agenda? What will the autopsies reveal in days to come? Are they going to
spin this into some other reason, something that may affect humans, as to why “birds
are falling from the sky?” Stay ahead of stories like this and don’t be fooled
or caught off guard when the viral misdirection takes flight.

FACT CHECK: “It’s a rosary that Biden wears that belonged to his son Beau Biden”

The
night of the first Presidential debate between President Donald Trump and
former Vice President Joe Biden on September 29th created viral
controversy over whether Joe Biden was wearing some sort of device on his left
wrist, or the rosary from his deceased son Beau who passed away on May 30, 2015.
The mainstream media quickly flooded the narrative with headlines about
right-wing conspiracy theorists while exclaiming, “it’s his dead son’s rosary”
and the social media trolls quickly pounced the scene to discredit anyone
alleging otherwise. But the fact of the matter is – it wasn’t his dead son’s
rosary – and the evidence is below.

CLAIM by Reuters: “The object on his wrist appears to be a pen or a rosary that he wears to honor his late son,” and they linked to the 2017 interview with Megyn Kelly.

CLAIM by USA Today: “It’s much more likely that object is a rosary,” and they linked to the 2017 interview with Megyn Kelly.

CLAIM by AP News: “In fact, Biden was wearing his late son Beau’s rosary beads on his wrist. Photos and video from the debate show the rosary peeking out of his cuff,” and they linked to the 2017 interview with Megyn Kelly.

CLAIM by Snopes: “It’s a rosary that Biden wears that belonged to his son Beau Biden, who died in 2015 of cancer,” and they linked to the 2017 interview with Megyn Kelly.

CLAIM by Social Media
Trolls:
“It’s
his dead son’s rosary idiot! He always wears it on his left wrist and never
takes it off,” and they linked to the 2017 interview with Megyn Kelly.

CLAIM by Joe Biden:  On November 13, 2017 in the Megyn Kelly interview for the opening night of his book tour, that all mainstream news cited, Biden claimed “I have not taken off the rosary Beau was wearing when he passed since then, but it’s my connection with him.”

RATING:

Whereas Biden may very well have been wearing his rosary, tucked away beneath his watch where he typically wears it, he doesn’t wear the rosary as often as people may think, he lied to Megyn Kelly on November 13, 2017, and at no point in time over the past five years has the rosary actually stuck out of his cuff in a vertical fashion, up his wrist. By the way, the Biden’s made $2.7 million in book deals after leaving the White House.

FACTS

From reviewing 4200 Photos plus a dozen videos between May 30, 2015 when Beau passed away, and September 29, 2020 when the presidential debate took place.

3 Events revealed Biden was
wearing the rosary he wore in the interview with Megyn Kelly

3 Events revealed an entirely
different bracelet he was wearing, which he later referred to as Beau’s rosary
as well

1 Event where Biden revealed an
entirely different piece of jewelry that he kept in his pocket, referring to it
as Beau’s rosary as well

10 Events revealed he wasn’t
wearing the rosary or the other bracelet at all

3,900 Photos revealed it can’t be seen
under his sleeve and if he was wearing it, it never stuck out beyond his cuff

0 Photos revealed the rosary
sticking out of the cuff in a vertical fashion – GRAVITY

The Trick & Why This Is So Important

The Biden campaign and media’s main emphasis was to squash the wrist object as quickly as possible, by directing people’s attention to the interview with Biden talking about his dead son’s rosary, so as to put a lid on it by shaming and guilting people. They spent the majority of their words focusing on discrediting claims of a wire under the lapel and smart contact lenses because these are easier to disqualify. It would be impossible to prove the contact lenses, and the video of the alleged wire under the lapel is in fact a shadow, making it an easy target to discredit. If one watches the video from several news channels, you can clearly see the hard-lined shadow shift and evaporate. Unfortunately, this left people quickly discrediting the object on the wrist, which is quite significant.

If there is one tactic people should be all too familiar with by now, it is the guilt and shame narrative they attach to every agenda to trick everyone into silence. They’ve been doing it for decades with the LGBTQ movement while exploiting transgenders to further their agendas. They do the same with racism, while trying to shame white people into believing they are racist, even when they’re not. They even do it with their abortion agenda, and try to make people feel bad for pedophiles as though it is a mental illness and they are a victim. How dare you question a man who is wearing a rosary that belonged to his dead son?! It’s the oldest trick in the book to keep people silent, and it even worked on some conservatives who were too afraid to be deemed a “conspiracy theorist,” while letting their own eyes deceive them, or bothering to dig into photo and video evidence.

This
isn’t about a man who lost his son. This is about a man that has shown clear
signs of dementia, has been implicated in very serious crimes, is notorious for
lying, and is running to be the President of the United States of America.

This is a man who has lied about the night of a presidential debate, telling people that the strange object under his left cuff was a rosary, and the mainstream news covered for him. This same man used teleprompters for tv interviews because he can’t remember what he is talking about from moment to moment. This is a man who refused to be checked for ear devices prior to the debate. This is a man who took a knee for BLM, a Marxist organization rooted in communism. This is a man who calls Antifa “an idea” and will not condemn them for burning cities, looting, and committing murder, which was all witnessed during the debate. They are attempting to install this man so that the far left communists can take over and run this country into the ground, because he is definitely not fit to run a country. Are you willing to play the shame game over a rosary, or do you want the truth exposed?

The Evidence

All mainstream news sources are pointing to this interview the Bidens did with Megyn Kelly to kick off their book tour back on November 13, 2017, over two years after Beau’s passing on May 30, 2015. This is what Joe Biden said about the rosary:

“Beau wore these. Hunt got these for Beau and me and ah, at Lady of Guadalupe down in Mexico, and we all wore them. I’m a practicing Catholic and Beau was a devout Catholic as well and it was more, both of us found solace in the elements of the church. It’s almost like meditation for us. And so, I have not taken off the rosary Beau was wearing when he passed, since then, but it’s my connection with him.

To be clear, on
that day in November 2017, Biden claimed he had not taken off his son’s rosary
since May 30, 2015.

Watch this short clip where Biden talks about the rosary.

Full video of interview

CLOSEUPS: Gravity & Facts

Joe Biden wears
one of two bracelets on his left wrist, and always wears it behind his watch.
He moved it in front of his watch here for people to see while they were
discussing it. Notice that the bracelet always runs horizontal across the wrist,
and as the wrist moves, the beads and charm all drop. At no point does any part
of this bracelet go up his wrist in a vertical fashion. GRAVITY.

The last picture above
consists of different beads, but with the same charm hanging from it.

PHOTO EVIDENCE

July 30, 2015
Exactly two months after Beau’s passing, Biden was golfing with former president Barack Obama. He was not wearing the rosary, despite telling Megyn Kelly and the public in November 2017 that he hasn’t taken it off since Beau passed away.

September 7, 2015
Four months after Beau’s passing, he was not wearing the rosary.

October 7, 2016
Biden was wearing a completely different bracelet, one with a squared off wood cross, rather than the one he spoke of with Megyn Kelly. Here you can see where a portion of it slid up above his watch. Again, it does not protrude in a vertical fashion up his wrist. Gravity.

November 2, 2016
This is the bracelet in the above photos. He generally wears his bracelets behind his watch, when he does actually wear them. Again, this is not the rosary he told Kelly he hasn’t taken off since Beau’s death.

March 2017
The bracelet with the cross is seen here again. When the arm is raised, the bracelet droops downward, not upward. Gravity.

July 2017
Four months before going on air with Megyn Kelly, he was not wearing the rosary.

September 29, 2017
Two months before going on air with Megyn Kelly, he was not wearing the rosary.

September 30, 2017
Two months before going on air with Megyn Kelly, he was not wearing the rosary. This makes 8 events where he was not wearing the rosary.

At this point, it is well established that Joe Biden lied in the interview with Megyn Kelly on November 13, 2017, which is the video all media sources are using to make their claim about the debate. He lied about never having taken off his dead son’s rosary.

January 23, 2018
Two months after being on with Megyn Kelly, he was not wearing the rosary, in this video at the Council on Foreign Relations.

June 29, 2018
Seven months after being on with Megyn Kelly, he was still not wearing Beau’s rosary.

December 13, 2018
Thirteen months after being on with Megyn Kelly, he was not wearing the rosary.

May 2019
One and a half years after the interview with Megyn Kelly, Biden can be seen here wearing the rosary, tied tightly behind his watch. When he raises his arm, the charm drops and the rosary stays behind his watch.

Aug 20, 2020
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

June 1, 2020
When Biden attended Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, Delaware, he was not wearing the rosary.

June 2, 2020
It’s important to take note that Biden raises his hands frequently when speaking. After reviewing over 4200 photos and numerous videos, it is clear that he wears a watch 99.99% of the time. He seldom wears the bracelet with the wood cross, and is seen wearing the rosary that he told Megyn Kelly was his son Beau’s, only once since that date in November, 2017. The only photos, from the 4200 reviewed, that show the bracelet or rosary even popped out of his cuff, are in this report.

On August 21, 2020, in an interview with CNN’s Gloria Borger, she asked Joe Biden, “Is it true you keep Beau’s rosary with you?” Biden’s response was, “got it in my pocket. I keep it all the time.” He pulled it out of his pocket and said, “it was more gold, you can see it’s worn.” Borger went on to tell her cohosts, “I’m sure he’s going to have it in his pocket tonight when he addresses the convention.”

This is not
the rosary he showed to Megyn Kelly back in
2017, nor is it the other bracelet with the wood cross that he wore a handful
of times. So the original rosary that Beau wore, that Biden claimed to never
have taken off back in 2017, has changed to a bracelet with a wood cross, and
again to a small metal ring with a metal cross that he keeps in his pocket.
Just so those facts are clear when people are referencing “Biden’s rosary.”

September 15, 2020
For only the second time in a long time, Biden can be seen wearing the rosary he had worn in the interview with Megyn Kelly, however, there is now a section that appears to hang out longer than seen before. Notice how it drapes and swings – GRAVITY. Also notice how it has a small silver ring at the end of it, which is not seen on the vertically protruding object in the night of the debate.

Sept 16, 2020
Biden is seen wearing it again the following day. Again, he may have been wearing it during the debate, but by no means is the object observed in the debate video footage representative of this rosary or the other bracelet he wears.

Sept 29, 2020
The Presidential Debate – The Controversy Over The Rosary vs Device

He is wearing his Omega watch. There is no visible bracelet or rosary above the watch. Therefore, if he is wearing it, he has it tucked behind his watch. Notice his cuff is slightly worn and frayed. He was not wearing cuff links, as you can see the button holes, so the theory that his rosary got caught on his cuff links, would not be the case, nor is it in line with where the object at the interior of the wrist protruded.

Right out the
gate, at the beginning of the debate, when the first question was asked, Biden
turned and coughed, and a strange object vertically protruded up his wrist, and
out of his cuff. It does not have the silver ring at the end of it as his
rosary does, as seen in photos above.

This can be seen at 2:08:15 from the full debate video.

Video clip of object extending up his wrist.

Notice that the rosary below has a
bead and a silver ring at the end of it, unlike the object above, and it falls
out of the cuff. GRAVITY.

Now watch what happens at 57:17 when 2 new objects protrude upward out of his cuff.

Watch the
interior center point of the wrist, and the side at about 90 degrees. Suddenly,
two objects shoot up vertically, one appearing to be encased in some sort of
clear material. The one at the interior of the wrist arcs and pulls on the skin
at the top of the wrist, then straightens back out and rapidly drops, leaving
the skin slightly puckered outward.

Full debate video – watch at 57:17

Clip of this segment at regular speed. Watch the bottom right corner.

Now watch it again in slow motion.

Slow motion video

Below are closeups of still shots from the video.

These two objects vertically shoot up
from his cusp in an almost animated fashion. The one at the interior of the
wrist appears to be encased in some sort of transparent casing. The one at 90
degrees is more difficult to discern, but they seem to be operating in unison.

The object at the interior of his wrist, extends further up before arcing around the very top of his wrist, and the skin extrudes out from his wrist, clinging to this object. There almost appears to be a thin wire with a reflective ball at the tip.

After it rapidly descends back into
the cuff, the skin remains extruding, as though something had pinched it and
pulled it away from the bone.

What was just witnessed, was NOT the
rosary, the charm, the other bracelet, the wood cross, or the metal ring that
he keeps in his pocket. It would defy gravity, for starters.

So what did Joe Biden do, since he already told the media that he was in fact wearing the rosary the night of the debate, but didn’t seem to deny there was some sort of device around his wrist? He wore BOTH bracelets to his visit to Little Haiti on October 5th, and rolled up his sleeves for everyone to see. Out of 4200 photos, plus video footage, this is the only time he has visibly worn a bracelet on each wrist. It looks as though he even added a longer extension to the rosary to give the appearance that it could have poked out of the cuff, beyond his watch, the night of the debate. The only problem is… GRAVITY. It extends downward, not vertically up his wrist, nor does it tug at his skin and retract down at rapid speed.

Assessment

On September
29, 2020, the night of the first presidential debate, Joe Biden was wearing
some sort of device around his wrist that appears to be intelligent in nature,
had the ability to quickly protrude in a vertical fashion, then arc and tug on
the skin at the top of his wrist, leaving the skin pinched outward away from
the bone, and then rapidly retracted into his cuff. What is it? Is it some sort
of medical device, like a tens unit? Is it meant to trigger or stimulate?
Without seeing the device up close it would be impossible to say exactly what
it is for certain. But, it is most certainly not the rosary.

Biden ran a campaign ad in 2019 that used the death of his former wife, daughter, and son to promote the Affordable Care Act. Many would find this rather distasteful. He changed what he referred to as his son’s rosary, three times. He lied to Megyn Kelly when he told her that he had not removed the rosary since Beau’s death, as evidenced in photos above.

He is running for the President of the United States of America, and requires teleprompters, 9am lids, and medical devices to keep him moving forward. He had knowledge and involvement in spying on President Trump before Trump became president, during the 2016 run. His cohorts want to install him so they can run the show and run this country into communism. They want him in so bad, they are willing to commit voter fraud to do so. There are currently two affidavits filed at the Texas Supreme Court by a former FBI agent and former police officer who allege to have video, documents, and witnesses to prove that Joe Biden’s political director in Texas is running an illegal ballot-harvesting operation.

The next presidential debate is October 15th, and Joe Biden needs to be inspected for devices, and drug tested. These people are not messing around, and their game is to keep this country locked down, masked up, and headed to a new world order of communism, under the guise of COVID-19. But don’t take my word for it, the World Economic Forum spells it all out for you.

The Curious Case of Trump’s Illness Baffles Pundits Left and Right

By James Fitzgerald

The world views US President
Franklin D. Roosevelt as a renowned leader who steered America through the
Great Depression and second world war, but during his tenure the public was
scarcely aware that he was unable to walk unaided — after being struck by polio
in 1921— and was wheelchair bound behind closed doors. The Secret Service would
routinely seize and destroy photographs that showed him in a weakened state and
the press were asked to portray him as strong and virile. And so the illusion
of physical stature endured.

Today the media has a quite different relationship with POTUS, and yet here again the public is faced with illusory narratives that rely on the same tricks and omissions. On October 2, President Trump was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after being diagnosed with Covid-19 the previous day. The First Lady, Melania, had also received a diagnosis. POTUS tweeted “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”

Trump appeared in a limousine on Sunday, with suit and mask, waving to well-wishers outside. Some corporate media outlets preferred to call them “demonstrators”. Newspapers had been perplexed by the mixed signals from the President’s doctors and advisers over the state of his condition, despite his doctor saying that the president was “doing very well”.

But why and how could a man with an acute respiratory illness present himself in public and in a broadcast public address at the weekend without any signs of disease? Trump benefits from his enemies’ sloganeering about him being narcissistic and mercurial, as he leads them on one goose chase after another. Journalists, reared on soundbites and emerging globalist agendas, no longer appear to have critical thinking abilities and are far from neutral on any subject that isn’t owned or controlled by their masters. They are therefore ill suited to offer any substantive insights into a military and subtextual campaign that permeates every facet of this President’s public life. Once again, this latest volley of announcements and decisions from the White House is characteristic of Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese strategist studied by West Point cadets — and hopefully a puzzle that will have a beneficial resolution, if indeed it is ever deciphered.  

The other White House staff to have tested
positive last week included Hope Hicks, a close advisor; Kellyanne Conway, a
former senior advisor who had taken part in White House duties last week; Trump
campaign manager Bill Stepien got the result on Friday; Ronna McDaniel, the
chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, was another to test positive,
although she had been in Michigan for the previous week.

Media reports focused on the White House
Rose Garden celebration for President
Trump’s third nominee to the US Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, on
September 26 after it emerged that Sen Mike Lee (R-UT), Sen Thom Tillis (R-NC),
the Reverend John Jenkins, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who
all attended the event with Conway, had been added to the Covid list.
Photographs of the event show some of the 100 attendees in masks, while others
did without and mingled both outside and later inside the White House. Barrett
had received a negative result for the virus on Friday.

However, the Rose Garden theory was undermined
after 11 positive coronavirus cases were traced back to people involved in the
setup and organizing for the first debate between Trump and Biden, according to
Cleveland officials. 

“The City of Cleveland is aware of positive
cases of Covid-19 following the September 29 presidential debate. In total, at
this time, we are aware of 11 cases stemming from pre-debate planning and
set-up, with the majority of cases occurring among out of state
residents,” a statement from Cleveland
City Hall read.

Separately, last week, a White House member
of staff and three WH journalists tested positive. Needless to say, all of
these people will have embarked on 10 to 14-day self-isolation.

And on Monday, Kayleigh McEnany, White House Press secretary, issued a statement saying she had tested positive on Monday, “while experiencing no symptoms”. She will continue her duties while working remotely under quarantine. This had followed numerous negative tests, which brings into question the reliability of the testing protocol and apparatus — given that blank swabs and pau pau fruit have also tested positive.

Social media was achatter with theories as
to why this inner circle of Trump loyalists should all get a red light
concurrently — with most Republican supporters at a loss for explanations.
DeAnna Lorraine, a former Congressional candidate, said: “This is getting too
weird”, in response to news of McEnany’s positive test. Some commentators
suggested that the White House had been targeted in a bio attack, although no
evidence has surfaced to corroborate such suppositions.

Joy Reid of MSNBC said Trump was trying to
escape presidential debates with Joe Biden. Michael Moore, the documentary
filmmaker, suggested that Trump was an “evil genius” who was seeking sympathy
by faking Covid-19. David Axelrod, a political commentator on CNN, tweeted on
Monday: “If the @POTUS is taking a steroid that sometimes produces wild mood
swings, shouldn’t he surrender authority to the VP under the 25th Amendment?”

POTUS has been given a combination of drugs
that may not have been given together to a patient before — the antiviral
remdesivir, a coronavirus antibody cocktail and the steroid dexamethasone. This
powerful mixture may indicate that he is determined to get well quickly and is
prepared to take the risks of side-effects and contraindications, or that his
condition was worse than his physician Sean Conley had proposing.

“If you look at the therapeutics
which I’m taking right now, some of them and others that are coming out soon
that are looking like, frankly, they’re miracles,”
Trump remarked in a video posted to his Twitter account at the weekend.

Twitter on Sunday banned a top US doctor after he posted a video wishing President Trump well and proposed an early treatment plan. Dr. David Samadi, a urologist at Lenox Hill Hospital and a Fox News contributor, suggested the use of a proven early treatment of HCQ, zinc and Zpack

CNN raised concerns about the
sudden onset of Trump’s illness, and claimed that Dr. Conley and White House
Chief of Staff Mark Meadows had provided “conflicting information” about the
President’s health. In a typically disparaging report on Monday, CNN said: “On
Saturday, Conley reported that the President had been sick for 72 hours. He
then released a statement correcting himself and claiming that the President
was on his third day of illness.” The report continued: “It will be at least
another week before the President is out of the woods. Covid patients often
take an abrupt turn for the worse about seven to 10 days into the course of
disease, and even then, he’s also at risk for long-term complications of Covid,
what some are calling long-hauler symptoms.”

The network’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on Sunday said President Trump’s doctors were “purposely misleading” the public and “hiding things”.

Despite this, the White House remained “optimistic” that Trump would be released from the hospital on Monday. And so it was, with Trump tweeting at 3.20pm local time: “I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”

With the US Senate closed until October 19,
due to lawmakers testing positive, the timing of this group’s reemergence from
quarantine would coincide with the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court
nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the
two-week recess on Saturday after three Republican senators tested positive for
the coronavirus. But the move, described as an effort to protect the health of
lawmakers, will not derail the Judiciary Committee’s plan to hold hearings on
Judge Barrett. McConnell is putting the chamber in “pro forma” session, which would still allow for
committees to meet remotely.

Questions remain over what will happen to the HEROES Act — a proposed $3 trillion stimulus package in response to the pandemic — which is due before the Senate.

In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII signed a papal
bull that promulgated a reformed calendar, that would become known as the
Gregorian calendar. In order for the Roman Church to keep track of Easter,
which fell on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal
equinox, on March 21, they dropped 10 days from the calendar to bring the
vernal equinox from March 11 back to March 21. This happened at the beginning
of October and became known as “10 days of darkness”. 

It is a strange echo through history that
so many White House staff should embark on 10-day retreats on the same date 438
years later. But, then, that might be an omen that even Sun Tzu couldn’t have
foreseen.

Could this orchestrated lockdown
of key figures in the Trump team be a safety measure as part of some strategic
military operation taking place on an auspicious date? What modern day Sun Tzus
might call “optics” — amid what has been described variously by some scientists
and investigators as a “scamdemic”.

Voter Fraud Claims Add To Election Fever

By James Fitzgerald

There have been a flurry of
articles about ballot fraud in the run up to the November elections, including
several tweets by President Donald Trump on the matter. But what is the
evidence for the tampering with or binning of voting slips and how widespread
might it be?

An explosive video featured on Fox
News’ Hannity show by James O’Keefe appeared to show the purchase of a ballot
from a Somali man living in Minnesota. The secretly filmed footage goes on to
show several Somalis making allegations related to the scheme, with one former
“co-worker” of Ilhan Omar claiming that the Representative for Minnesota’s 5th
congressional district was directly involved in the fraud.

“Nobody would say that Ilhan Omar
isn’t part of this,” said Omar Jamal, chairman of the Somali Watchdog Group.
“Unless you’re from a different planet, but if you live in this universe, I
think everybody knows it.”

“Your focus is winning. No matter
what you do, you ignore the rules and regulations,” Jamal told Project Veritas.
“There’s no moral and ethics here. It’s just, the end will justify the means.”

Jamal claims that Ali Isse Gainey, a staffer for Omar, oversees the vote-buying scheme
on the ground, where operatives will accompany Somali residents to the voting
booth and do the actual voting for the person.

The millions of dollars being
spent on influencing the immigrant vote — which could number 100,000 people —
is, according to Jamal, designed to sway the vote enough to make a difference
for the Democrat politician. “The techniques that he [Ali Isse] uses to
exchange money for votes — that’s not a secret. Everybody knows about it. $200,
$300 per ballot received,” he said.

Another source on the video says:
“She’s [Ilhan Omar] the one who came up with all this [pay-for-vote].”

Minneapolis Police announced
earlier this week that they would be investigating the “vote harvesting” claims
made against supporters of Rep Ilham Omar. In a tweet late on Monday, they
said: “The MPD is aware of the allegations of vote harvesting. We are in the
process of looking into the validity of those statements. No further
information is available at this time on this.”

President Trump tweeted the Project Veritas video, with the words: “Rigged Election!” He earlier tweeted: “This is totally illegal. Hope that the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota has this, and other of her many misdeeds, under serious review??? If not, why not??? We will win Minnesota because of her, and law enforcement. Saved Minneapolis & Iron O Range!”

According to the Gateway Pundit, Ilham Omar’s second highest donor, Basim Omar Sabri, is a convicted felon who regularly raises funds for Hamas.

This news came as reports surfaced
about Brooklyn voters receiving absentee ballot envelopes with incorrect names
and addresses. Voters in Queens received mail-in ballots for the presidential
election marked for military use, despite never having served in the armed
forces — raising the prospect that those votes could be challenged in court if
used in the election.

Steve Drazkowski, a Minnesota
State Representative, told political blogger Michelle Malkin that he went to
Project Veritas with information on election fraud after reporting it to the
FBI. “I was not convinced that they were going to do an investigation … the
only other organization that would do this and bring it to the surface was Project Veritas.”

Two separate affidavits filed at the Texas Supreme Court on Monday formally accused Joe Biden’s political director in Texas of helping to run an illegal ballot-harvesting operation.

Journalist Patrick Howley of National File reported that “two private investigators, including a former FBI agent and former police officer,” testified under oath that they had video evidence, documentation and witnesses to prove that Dallas Jones and his associates were hoarding mail-in and absentee ballots and ordering operatives to fill the ballots out for people illegally, including for “dead people, homeless people, and nursing home residents”, in the 2020 presidential election.

The affidavits are part of a
class-action lawsuit filed by citizens against Harris County and the state of
Texas.

The “integrity of the election”
was one of six topics at the first presidential debate between Trump and Biden
on Tuesday. The President has recently made references to problems with mail-in
voting across eight states, after the expansion of mail-in ballots during the
Covid-19 pandemic. CNN stated that he was making misleading and false claims
about fraud related to voting, “incorrectly tying the rejection of mail-in
ballots to fraud, and exaggerating the impact of isolated instances involving
problems with small numbers of ballots”.

His critics say that Trump has
failed to address other election threats, such as interference by Russia “to denigrate Biden”.

A major US provider of software services to state and local governments last week confirmed that it had been subject to a ransomware attack, which also raised concerns over the security of voting systems ahead of the election. Tyler Technologies of Plano, Texas, told its clients that an unknown intruder had compromised its phone and information technology systems. Tyler provides software services to local and state governments across the country for everything from jail and court management systems to payroll, human resources, tax and bill collection, and land records.

Last week, Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, said that police in Greenville, Wisconsin, found mail in a ditch that included absentee ballots. She also said that Trump ballots were found in Pennsylvania.

Several media outlets reported over
the weekend that about 1,400 voters in Virginia got two absentee ballots mailed
to them. Elections officials in Fairfax County told the Washington Post that a “printer
problem” led employees to mistakenly mail two ballots to voters. The Recipients
were told to destroy the second ballot.

Jean Brennan of Leesburg, speaking
to Fox5, said: “This is what [Trump’s] concerned about and I am too.”

A case of double voting in New Hampshire is being prosecuted by the state’s attorney general, Gordon MacDonald. Vincent Marzello of West Lebanon, NH, was arrested and charged with Felony voter fraud for voting twice during the 2016 general election. The New Hampshire Democratic Party appointed the double voter, Marzello, also known as “Helen Ashley,” as an election inspector for the 2020 election under his female alias.

It seems that claims of ballot
rigging and harvesting will not go away in the run up to presidential elections
in November.  But will political
correctness and obfuscation get in the way of prosecutions and remedial action?

Why a COVID-19 Vaccine Likely Won’t Happen Anytime Soon

Leave it to me to go against the grain again, but I have to call it like I see it, just as I have said for months that Hillary Clinton would never run for President again, despite nearly everyone declaring “she’s running!” So once again, I’m going to call this like I see it, and perhaps I will be proven wrong in my theory, but knowing how these people run their strategies, what I foresee is their long game of not producing a vaccine so as to maintain power over people through fear. Let me explain…

While everyone is focused on the potential
outcomes of a vaccine, they are missing the alternative flipside to this drama
series. The name of the game is control through fear. Through governors and
mayors, they have been controlling the economy, people’s civil rights, and
placing mandates and restrictions on everything they can conjure up, from
wearing masks to closing businesses and schools, social distancing rules, not
allowing church service, and on and on it goes. Not only would a vaccine remove
those abilities and allow everyone’s pretty faces to shine again, they would be
handing over a perceived win to President Trump as the savior of this “virus.”
It would put a hard stop to restrictions and relinquish their power over
everyone.  

“But, they want to track us through chips, depopulate us, and make trillions on these vaccines!” Sure, the chip option is always on the table, as they’ve been working on variations of such devices for quite some time. As it stands, they indicate a chip may be on the syringe itself, not inside the syringe. Not that we would take their word for anything, but let’s contemplate the obvious. Millions of people get the flu shot every year. Who’s to say they are not already chipped, or perhaps they’re not – but that option has long been there. The same goes for the depopulation theory. We are of far more value alive and sick, than dead. The pharmaceutical and health industry make billions upon billions off of sick people. Now, what about trillions they could make on a global COVID-19 vaccine? Why would you do that and blow your load in a single vaccine that may or may not be required each year thereafter, when you can milk taxpayer dollars for years to come?

Of
course, there is the theory that they will make the vaccine mandatory in every
state and not allow people to go to work or buy groceries unless they can show
proof of the vaccine. All signs point to this, when observing the tactics being
used across the globe as a whole. And that may be their end game for the long
haul, unless they are thrown completely off course. What would happen if
therapeutics beat them to the punch? Or, if a vaccine can’t be approved for
production? Or, what if enough evidence came to light of the actual death rate,
that shuts this entire COVID vaccine agenda down? All are plausible at this
point.

Let’s take the HIV/AIDS slush fund for an example on how these groups milk it for all its worth. In 1984, when they terrorized the nation with high intensity fear mongering, much like they are doing with COVID, they claimed they would have a vaccine produced within two years, then it was ten, then over 20 countries were running over 30 vaccine trials, and by 2015 Bill Gates declared “An HIV vaccine is coming! (by 2030).” On and on it went, as billions of taxpayer dollars were shelled out and 36 years later, they still don’t have a vaccine. A vaccine simply cannot be produced for some alleged viruses and diseases because of reasons we won’t get into in this article. Sure, there are also suppressed cures for some diseases, and I believe some of those may come to light over the next few years.

The longer they string it out, the more funds go in, allowing them to circulate those funds among one another, much how they have managed Bill Gates’ Global Fund for two decades. And let’s face it, if they allow people to drop their masks, how will the rioters continue their agenda to terrorize, destroy, and keep people in a state of fear? That 14-day quarantine has evolved into 6 months. Who saw that coming? I sure did. Their goal is the long game because they know Trump is going to win the election by a landslide. If they give him a vaccine, produced in record time, they just handed him another win, despite the fact that most would argue a “record time” would be irresponsibly dangerous without long term clinical trials. So why is Trump playing along? Does he want a vaccine?

Going back to my report from April, ‘Investigations & The Battle for A Vaccine: Where is This Headed?’ I stated this same theory back then, but with much less to go on. I showed a timeline of critical events, actions, and words that had been carried out by the Trump administration versus Bill Gates’ “team,” and indicated that vaccines feel like a longshot for the US. President Trump pulled out of the WHO, refuses to be a part of the vaccine COVAX team, pulled funds from NIH and announced an investigation into it, stated that the $6 billion a year to PEPFAR needed to be looked into and reallocated, and that they would be doing some research “on important people who take a lot of credit for what they do.” Trump is fully aware of all individuals involved in running what he knows to be – slush funds. In addition to all of this, which is a LOT, he has repeatedly fought for hydroxychloroquine, which has more recently been pushed in an even brighter spotlight, and I covered this in my report ‘COVID-19: The Coverup, The Cure, and Key Evidence.’ In fact, on August 18th, Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Ron Johnson submitted a letter to the FDA demanding information regarding their actions on the use of hydroxychloroquine.

So why does Trump consistently tout that a vaccine is coming soon and that we may see it as early as October or December, while the CDC puts out a statement to all governors to prepare by November 1st for a COVID vaccine, just in case it’s ready by then – two days before the election. We are in a battle against a global enemy that runs so deep and operates on pushing fear and propaganda – you have to play the game if you are in it to win it. This is an election year, the most important election in the history of America, and people are already in an amped up state of fear by the enemy’s tactics. They are organized, diligent, and have many low-hanging players involved across the globe, willing to alter numbers, test results, and death rates in order to keep this fear alive. If Trump were to say that he has no interest in a vaccine, though he has stated he prefers therapeutics several times, it would be game over. Does that make him a liar? Is it being done with good intention to help the people? Do you want transparency over strategy, loss over win? That’s for you to decide.

What’s it going to look like after he wins the election? If big pharma, Bill Gates, and Dr. Anthony Fauci have already stated numerous times that they don’t think they will have a vaccine until 2021, and their intention is to drag this out much longer, create another COVID-19 wave in winter, and milk it for every restriction they can impose on people, when will it end?

I suspect we are going to see a lot more evidence and rectified statistics emerging over the next couple of months. We have already seen the CDC come out and state, “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.” The 2.6 comorbidities consist of heart disease, influenza, cardiac arrest, and other life-threatening illnesses, with over 40% of the deaths resulting from nursing homes. There have also been numerous reports on labs only reporting positive numbers, which skews data, and others who were getting false/positive tests. Even the New York Times published an article titled ‘Your Coronavirus Test is Positive. Maybe it Shouldn’t Be,” stating that “Up to 90% of people testing positive carried barely any virus” and suggesting that too many people are unnecessarily isolating.

On August 26th, the Justice Department put out an immediate release “requesting data from Governors of states that issued COVID-19 orders that may have resulted in deaths of elderly nursing home residents,” which include New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. The “data will help inform whether the Department of Justice will initiate investigations under the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA).”

When you take all of this into consideration, after having studied President Trump and the enemies’ actions, strategies, and patterns, I can only conclude that information will come to light shortly after the elections. I do not believe we will have a COVID-19 vaccine in the U.S., more data will be revealed exposing the exaggerations of this virus and the fact that the economy did not need to be shut down, and therapeutics will be made more readily available for those who may need them. I do believe that big pharma and its entourage will continue to push for a vaccine, siphoning as much funding as possible, while corrupt governors and mayors forge ahead with ongoing restrictions. For some, the prospect of ongoing restrictions is far worse than a vaccine emerging with potential mandates. Though these restrictions are mandated on a state level, I do feel that as new information surfaces, there will be a concerted effort by the people, attorneys, and the Trump administration to apply pressure to states that are overstepping their authority and ultimately destroying people’s livelihood. To date, I believe that not enough people have stepped up against this tyranny and are following along for fear of confrontation. After six months of this, I had hoped to see more action, but think we are right on the cusp of that tide turning.

What
do you see at Trump’s rallies? I see the most enthusiastic group of patriots
ever to have walked the earth. I see a man who has the support of millions. I
also see a man who knows that masks and social distancing are not necessary.
What does this tell you? Follow his actions and read between the lines when he
speaks. We are at war.

That
said, at no point should anyone be sitting back without taking action. People
need to be vocal, stand up for their rights, defy these monsters setting unrealistic
and unnecessary mandates, demand that schools open, fight to get on school
boards, pay close attention to legislation in your area and fight against it,
and most importantly – vote on every single local and state level election that
takes place, in addition to the presidency.

It
is our responsibility to make the changes we want to see, to fight against
tyranny, and to create a better “here and now” as well as a better future. We
are our own saviors.

Netflix’s Cuties Drama Puts Pedophilia Issue Center Stage

By James Fitzgerald

The controversy that kicked off
over a poster for a new Netflix film called “Cuties” has intensified after the
release of the film on September 9 in the US exploded claims by the streaming
service that the artwork did not reflect the film.  

“Cuties is a social
commentary against the sexualization of young children,” a Netflix spokeswoman
told the Daily Caller on Thursday. “It’s an award winning film and a powerful
story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more
generally growing up – and we’d encourage anyone who cares about these
important issues to watch the movie.”

However, nearly 600,000 people have signed a Change.org petition titled, “Cancel Netflix Subscription”. The French film has also prompted the hashtag #CancelNetflix to trend on social media.

Netflix stock
dropped from $509 on Wednesday to $480 at mid-day on Friday — wiping several
billion dollars from its valuation since the #CancelNetflix hashtag started
trending — although this flux could also
be attributed to general market conditions.

“I discovered the poster [at] the same time as the American public,” director Maïmouna Doucouré said in an interview this month with Deadline. “My reaction? It was a strange experience. I hadn’t seen the poster until after I started getting all these reactions on social media, direct messages from people, attacks on me. I didn’t understand what was going on. That was when I went and saw what the poster looked like.”

Doucouré said she hoped Cuties would “make a big change in this
world that hypersexualizes children” and said that the Netflix posters were “not
representative of the film and especially its message.”

“I really put my heart into this film,” Doucouré told Deadline. She claims the story is partially autobiographical and about “children who have to navigate between a liberal Western culture and a conservative culture at home”.

However, the reaction to the film itself
has eclipsed the controversy over the original poster. Indeed, the movie is
rated TV-MA by US authorities, which carries the advisory: “This program is
intended to be viewed by mature, adult audiences and may be unsuitable for
children under 17.” This adult plot stars four 11-year-old girls.

Out of 6,500 reviews on IMDB, the film
garners an average of 1.7 out 10. Over at Rotten Tomatoes there is a stark
contrast between media critics’ appraisals, averaging at 88 percent, and the
audience response, at 3 percent.

According to The Blaze on Thursday, IMDB’s film page for Cuties described a moment in the film as “lawfully defined as pedophilia”.

It claimed a parental warning on the film
read: “During one of the many highly sexualized & erotic dance scenes that
purposefully exploit & objectify numerous scantily clad under age [sic]
girls, one of the female child dancers lifts up her cropped top to fully
display her bare breast. This is lawfully defined as pedophilia and can be extremely
distressing to many viewers.”

The page has since been modified, although
a visit to internet archive site Wayback Machine confirms the original posts.

Netflix may yet face legal repercussions for airing the film in the U.S., due to violations of Title 18, section 2256 of Chapter 110 — “sexual exploitation and other abuse of children”. The Fifth Circuit court established the “Dost test” in 1986 — a six-factor test to determine if images are child porn: 1. Whether the focal point of the visual depiction is on the child’s genitalia or pubic area; 2. Whether the setting of the depiction is sexually suggestive, that is, in a place or pose associated with sexual activity; 3. Whether the child is depicted in an unnatural pose or in inappropriate attire, considering the age of the child; 4. Whether the child is fully or partially nude; 5. Whether the visual depiction suggests sexual coyness or a willingness to engage in sexual activity; or 6. Whether the depiction is designed to elicit a sexual response in the viewer.

Earlier this month, Turkey ordered Netflix
to remove Cuties from its country’s catalogue.

IMDB

Netflix is currently the biggest streaming
service in America. On its board sit Barack and Michelle Obama, Susan Rice, Meghan
Markle and Harry Windsor. These normally loquacious media personalities have
been very quiet on the controversy.

In an interview with
Tucker Carlson Tonight this week, political activist Tammy Bruce said: “Maybe
Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself, and he’s working as a consultant — for
films, again.”

On the other hand,
the New Yorker magazine said the film was done “as a condemnation of the
patriarchy.”

The New Yorker had
no qualms about endorsing the movie, calling it “the extraordinary Netflix
debut that became the target of a right-wing campaign.” Britain’s Daily
Telegraph called it “a provocative powder-keg for an age terrified of child
sexuality.”

Netflix has
described it variously as a “social commentary against the sexualization of
young children” an “award winning film” and “a powerful story”.

So is it an
indictment of child sexual exploitation or a celebration?

And where does the
#MeToo movement stand on this issue? Was it hijacked and then discarded by
globalists for their disruptive agenda, causing it to implode? Or did its
public supporters run for the hills under the weight of hypocrisy of messages
emanating from celebrity mouths?

The film choreographs the children to be
suggestive and sexual in scenes that place the emphasis on the characters being
inherently sexual, rather than innocents who are being conditioned by social
media. Even the scene on the bed with Amy (Fathia Youssouf) and Angelica (Médina El Aidi-Azouni )
involving them prostrate and gobbling up candy on the “marital bed” is
reminiscent of pornographic scenarios. What justification was there for having
close up shots on the crotches of the girls and on the exposed bottom of one
child, after she has her pants forcibly removed — itself an aggressive sexual
behavior?

The dance routine by the girls involves
them twerking, lying on the floor face down while pumping their buttocks in
simulated sex, posing with their legs spread wide, and touching themselves
intimately. On their way to the competition, they are stopped by security
guards, who are then “twerked” by the girls in order to gain entry. The plot
involves one girl photographing her vagina and posting it online, a five-year-old
taking a turn at webcam porn, the protagonist at one point tries to snap a
photo of a boy in a urinal, and a girl is shown blowing up a used condom.

If this film was about exploring the
sinister aspects of objectification and sexualization of children, then it
could have carried subplots that highlighted the seedy nature of rap and Latin
culture’s self-sexualization tropes and the mental health effects of
pre-pubescent sexualization. Instead, the film borrows shooting conventions and
stylistic devices from the porn industry to create a perverse lens through
which the audience must participate if it is to engage with the story. One does
not come away after an hour and thirty-six minutes feeling more knowledgeable
of, or empathetic towards, a young girl’s world view, but rather as someone who
has been guided through an experience of scopophilia. This is not even the
so-called male gaze, but rather the pervert’s gaze.

Doucouré says she has also received “extraordinary
support” from the French government, and that the film will be used as an
educational tool in her home country.

She signed with Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles after her film was selected for the Sundance festival. CAA was of course closely associated with Harvey Weinstein.

Pixar and Disney
films for children have been found to contain pizza delivery trucks, in the
former, and the rectangular squiggle that the CIA identified as a pedophile symbol
in the latter’s movies. Although there is no evidential link between those
symbolic inclusions in their kids’ films, sexual or phallic imagery has been
found in Disney films going back decades. Just because Cuties is a foreign
language film does not exclude it from scrutiny on those terms.

The liberal media
commentators who call the controversy over Cuties a “right-wing” campaign say
that most of those people haven’t even seen the film. But having seen the film
myself, I would say that the columnists in the corporate media haven’t watched
the film with an expert, semiotic eye. 

As has been reported extensively on this site, sexual crimes against children reach into all corners of state institutions, not least the church. What is becoming apparent now is that a $150 billion industry exists to exploit and traffic youngsters, as evidenced by the widespread arrests and military operations across the country instituted by the current administration. Those figures and harsh realities are not so easy to dismiss, even though they may not sit well in the cocktail bars of the liberal cognoscenti or be given adequate coverage by the corporate media.

Cuties has polarized
opinions between the media’s arbiters of taste and the general public, but
judging by the swift uproar and pragmatism calling for its removal from
Netflix, the film may well suffer what the French call “la petite mort”.

Protecting U.S. Bulk-Power System & Technology from Bad Actors: Part 2

On May 1,
2020, President Trump signed executive order “Securing the United States
Bulk-Power System,” which was one of the most important executive orders to
date, yet it was a blip on most people’s radar. In fact, there have been a
string of key executive orders and bills put in place regarding the power
supply and technology sectors to protect the U.S. from potential harm. While
all eyes have been on 5G and Huawei, few seem to be paying attention to the
bigger picture – electricity, solar, “climate change” agendas, manufactured
parts, foreign interference and outsourcing – essentially, our entire powered
infrastructure.

Part 1 of this report breaks down the timeline of key executive orders, bills, actions, and events that are critical to protecting the U.S., and reflects all the way back to 2012, showing where President Trump’s thought process was at long before he became president. It is essential reading to understand the magnitude of what is at stake and some of the protections that have been put in place.

There are three individuals who have played vital roles in taking advantage of the U.S., running specific deals to benefit China, and focusing on monopolizing the energy and technology industries, among others, from high positions of financial authority, two of whom have flown under the radar with most people. This report exposes some of these endeavors.

Parts 1 & 2 of this 30-page report are also available in The Bookshop in a single pdf download.

Three Key Players Flying Under The Radar

Click on image to enlarge

Corey’s Digs has reported extensively on former World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, his ties to Dartmouth, HIV/AIDS slush fund, Bill Gates and the Clintons, the World Health Organization, and recent involvement with COVID-19 contact tracing. This report covers another industry he is heavily involved in, along with two other individuals that no one is talking about, both of whom were born in China.

Coincidentally, all of these men graduated high profile
schools within a 4-mile radius of one another, and all within six years of each
other, who went on to work for the World Bank with overlapping timeframes. But
there are a lot more coincidences documented below.

Wu Shangzhi graduated MIT with a PhD in mechanical engineering in 1985

Jin-Yong Cai graduated Boston University with a PhD in economics in 1990

Jim Yong Kim graduated Harvard Medical School with an M.D. in 1991, and PhD in
anthropology from Harvard University in 1993

Partners in Health was formed in 1987 by Jim Yong Kim, along with four co-founders, including Paul Farmer who graduated Harvard University in 1990. Kim and Farmer are at the forefront of the contact tracing agenda for COVID-19, both having deep ties to the Clintons and Bill Gates.

It should be noted that Bill Gates funds all of those
schools, in addition to other schools they have attended as well, including
those in China.

Wu Shangzhi, Jin-Yong Cai, and Jim Yong Kim all formerly worked
for the World Bank in high-ranking positions, with overlapping time frames.

Wu Shangzhi
1984-1991 – Operation Officer at the World Bank specializing in investment projects for China and India
1991-1993 – Senior Investment Officer at the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank Group

Jin-Yong Cai
1990-1993 – Economist in Central Europe and South Asia for the World Bank
2012-2015 – CEO of the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank Group

Jim Yong Kim
2012-2019 – President of the World Bank

Both Jim Yong Kim and Jin-Yong Cai currently work for Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP). They began working with GIP just three months apart.
• Jim Yong Kim began on February 1, 2019 after resigning from the World Bank.
• Jin-Yong Cai began in May, 2019 after departing TGP Capital.

Both Jin-Yong Cai and Wu Shangzhi played instrumental roles in the founding of China International Capital Corporation (CICC) in 1995, the first ever investment banking venture in China, which played a critical role in the Chinese economic transformation. More on this further down.
• Jin-Yong Cai was the Managing Director to the China International Capital Corporation (CICC) at its inception.
• Wu Shangzhi was the head of CICC’s private equity group from its inception.

Both Jim Yong Kim and Jin-Yong Cai have decades-long ties to Bill Gates, as well as funding his endeavors while they worked for the World Bank. Gates also has very strong ties to the technology, energy, and climate sectors, as well as to China.

JIM YONG KIM: Former World Bank President and Current GlP partner

• Born in South Korea, raised in the U.S. where he currently
resides

• 1983 – Co-founded Partners in Health in Zanmi Lasante in
Cange, Haiti

• 1987 – Co-founded Partners in Health in the U.S.

• 1991 – Graduated Harvard
Medical School with an M.D.

• 1993 – Graduated Harvard University
with a PhD in anthropology

• 2003 – Advisor to Director-General World Health
Organization and Director of HIV/AIDS Dept.

• 2006-2009 – Various positions affiliated with Harvard

• 2009-2012 – President of Dartmouth College

• 2012-2019 – President of the World Bank

• 2019 – Partner at Global Infrastructure Partners

• Kim has received the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, was
recognized as one of America’s “25 Best Leaders” by U.S. News & World
Report, and was named TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in The
World.”

In January 2019, Kim resigned from the World Bank three years early, after a 7-year stint, being appointed by former President Barack Obama, and selected by none other than Hillary Clinton. This was a very significant position to just walk away from, so there had to be irons in the fire to carry out far greater agendas that he was no longer able to carry out through the World Bank. On February 1, 2019, he became a partner at Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) based out of New York. They are a large equity investment firm, investing in the energy sector, ports, infrastructure, and transportation. (More on GIP below.) While those endeavors continue, he is also working with his co-founders of Partners in Health, Ophelia Dahl and Paul Farmer on implementing COVID-19 contact tracing surveillance in multiple states. You can read much more about Kim’s history in other reports by Corey’s Digs, in addition to his decades-long work with the Clintons and Bill Gates.

Kim also has long-standing relationships with Dr. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, as they have all been involved in the HIV/AIDS agenda, going back decades. In fact, they even produced a movie titled ‘Bending The Arc’ which tells the story of Partners in Health changing global health, and had both Fauci and Birx at the screening and as panelists, in 2018. The panel discussion entailed talks about how they would “bolster leadership and investment to conquer pressing global threats like famine, refugee crises, and pandemic disease.”

During Kim’s time at the World Bank, they financially supported three urban transport projects in the Wuhan China metropolitan region, with $120 million funded in February 2016 alone. Well before Kim’s time at the World Bank, in 1999 the IFC had invested $11.5 million for China Infrastructure’s Wuhan International Container Transshipment project.

In 2012, Kim’s predecessor Robert Zoellick, who now serves on the board of directors for Twitter, (I know, it’s difficult to keep up with all of these shenanigans), had worked diligently on the ‘China 2030’ report on ‘Building a Modern, Harmonious, and Creative Society’ by the World Bank and the Development Research Center of the State Council, Beijing’s cabinet, which is a 470-page blueprint for China’s transition from an export-driven economy to a consumer-led one.

The report is packed full of information, data, and ranking comparisons between countries, especially with the United States, and includes China’s lead in several areas of the energy industry. By 2012, China had become the world’s largest manufacturer, largest exporter, and second-largest economy.

Remember this tweet from 2012, four years prior to Donald Trump
becoming President, along with the 30% tariffs he imposed on solar panels
abroad in 2018?

One of Kim’s top aides was Jin-Yong Cai, the VP and CEO of World Bank
Group’s IFC, at the time. They forged quite a relationship, got into a bit of
hot water, and a few years later both became partners at Global Infrastructure
Partners. (more on that below).

JIN-YONG CAI: Former VP and CEO of World Bank Group’s IFC

• Born in China, and has worked in both the U.S. and China

• 1982 – Science degree from Peking University

• 1990 – PhD in economics from Boston University

• 1990-1993 – Economist in Central Europe and South Asia for the World Bank

• 1994 – Joined Morgan Stanley and was also the Managing Director of the China International Capital Corporation (CICC) which launched in 1995

• 2000-2012 – Participating Managing Director in Goldman Sachs Group and Chief Executive of Goldman Sachs Gao Hua in China

• 2012-2015 – Executive Vice President and CEO of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank Group, as one of Jim Yong Kim’s top aides.

• 2016-2019 – Partner of Texas Pacific Group (TPG) Capital, based in Hong Kong

• 2019 – Partner at Global Infrastructure Partners headquartered in
New York

• Has served on the board of Aon, Policy Commission of the Asia
Society Policy Institute, the International Advisory Board of King Abdullah
Petroleum Studies and Research Center, and the International Advisory Board for
Blavatnik School of Government and the University of Oxford

Two days after Jin-Yong Cai started his job at the IFC of the World Bank Group, he announced that they will further expand their business in Africa. Cai said in Dakar that “IFC will leverage its leading innovative global platform for investments, advisory services, and investment mobilization to do more in the world’s poorest countries and fragile states.” He went on to state that “A long-term strategic commitment to Sub-Saharan Africa has allowed IFC to become the leading international financial institution promoting private sector investment. IFC’s global expertise, local presence, and products and services are meeting the needs of African private businesses today.”

Cai’s focus was on “Encouraging private investments in energy, infrastructure, and other areas is an important way that IFC can help Senegal fill basic needs.” One month after his first meeting in Africa, Bill Gates funded the IFC $614,708 for sanitation in Kenya and East Africa.

For years, Jin-Yong Cai worked with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, while Gates stuffed the IFC with millions. Who’s running the show, where are the funds really going, and how involved was China in all of this, being as Cai’s background is in investment banking in Asia and Bill Gates investments and focus has always been on Africa and South East Asia?

In April 2013, the IFC and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation hosted an event calling on the private sector to deepen its impact on ending extreme poverty by 2030. Both Jin-Yong Cai and Jim Yong Kim were in attendance and strategized this goal with Gates.

According to a 2015 report on ‘Financing African Infrastructure’ by the Global Economy and Development at Brookings, “In 2014, the city of Dakar, with technical assistance from the Gates Foundation, plans to issue the first non-sovereign-backed municipal bond in all of sub-Saharan Africa outside of South Africa. The $41.8 million bond will be backed by a guarantee from the USAID Development Credit Authority. This will raise funds for the construction of a marketplace for more than 3,500 street vendors.”

The report goes on to review investments in infrastructure and major
power and rail projects in Africa, concluding that if their more recent
estimates are accurate based on prior years, China is clearly the main source
for infrastructure financing in sub-Saharan Africa outside of national budgets.

Bill Gates doesn’t hide the fact that he “partners with China for global development.” According to Gates, “China has become Africa’s largest economic partner.” In fact, Gates tax returns indicate 34 million shares in China’s Everbright International Limited who focuses on energy, water, and environment in Africa and other countries.

During Jin-Yong Cai’s time at the IFC, between 2012-2015, Gates was
incredibly generous with grants to develop Africa, alongside his China
partners.

In 2013, he funded the IFC $3.2 million to create a roadmap for a computer system in Tanzania.

In 2014, another $3.9 million to IFC to increase access to technologies and smallholder livestock producers in Africa.

In 2014 he funded the IFC another $7 million specifically for
agricultural development in Africa.

In February 2015, Gates funded the IFC nearly $10 million to digitize the health payment system in Bihar in east India and Uttar Pradesh in northern India.

In 2016 and 2017 funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation totally stopped to the IFC, despite having funded them year after year consecutively during Cai’s time as CEO. Then, in 2018 there was one final grant to the IFC in the amount of $5 million to strengthen India’s smallholder farmers.

Jin-Yong Cai Submitted his Resignation in 2015 After Coming Under Fire

In 2013, The World Bank made $1.65 billion in loan commitments in China, and its private sector arm, the International Finance Corp (IFC) committed $1.64 billion, both while Jim Yong Kim and Jin-Yong Cai were in charge.

In November 2015, Jin-Yong Cai and Bertrand Badré, two of Jim Yong Kim’s top aides, both submitted their resignations after coming under fire earlier that year for an unusual $1 billion loan from China. As reported by The Epoch Times, Badré and Cai worked on the loan from China that allowed China to increase its lending through the International Development Association (IDA). The Financial Times reported that there was unease among shareholders due to Cai’s aggressive investments, particularly to Chinese companies. As of 2015, the IFC had invested more than $10 billion in over 300 projects with China since 1985.

Just two weeks after the investigation probe began into the $1 billion loan, it was quickly dismissed by Locke Lord Edwards law firm, finding no wrongdoing. Despite the Bank’s treasurer Madelyn Antoncic first raising questions about the handling of the loan in December 2013, Jim Yong Kim did not initiate the review until February 2015.

Cai went on to become partner of
Texas Pacific Group (TPG) Capital, based in Hong Kong, and three years later
left to become a partner at Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), headquartered
in New York – just three months after Jim Yong Kim became a partner at GIP.

Cai’s history with Wu Shangzhi,
former senior investment officer at the World Bank Group’s IFC, dates back to
1995, and likely long before. Together, they played instrumental roles in the
founding of China International Capital Corporation (CICC), the first ever
investment banking venture in China. More on this below.

WU SHANGZHI: Former Senior Investment Officer at the World Bank Group’s IFC

• Born in Beijing, China, has worked in both the U.S. and China, and
currently resides in China

• 1985 – Graduated MIT
with a PhD in mechanical engineering

• 1984-1991 – Operation Officer at the World Bank specializing in investment projects for China and India

• 1991-1993 – Senior Investment Officer at the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank Group

• Returned to China

• 1992 – began working on CICC

• 1995 – Head of CICC’s private equity group
since its inception

• 2002 – Established CDH Venture with six founding partners

Not many people will be familiar with Shangzhi, however, his
connections and investments are quite substantial. From the World Bank and IFC
to CICC and CDH, he’s been instrumental in several sectors. Whereas some of his
endeavors have little to do with energy power sources, they are very
significant ventures with key connections and indicate a long-term plan.

Shangzhi served five years for the World Bank, specializing in
investment projects for China and India, followed by two years as a senior
investment officer at the IFC arm of the World Bank. While there, he decided to establish an investment firm
in China, and approached GIC Private Limited, Singapore’s sovereign wealth
fund, which was created in 1981 under the advice of British merchant bank N M
Rothschild & Sons. GIC suggested that Shangzhi join China International
Capital Corporation (CICC), an investment bank that GIC was involved with. The
CICC was incorporated by China Construction Bank, Morgan Stanley, China
National Investment and Guaranty Co Ltd, GIC, and the Mingly Corporation.
Shangzhi went on to lead until it was split off in 2001 because the China
Securities Regulatory Commission prohibited investment banks from doing private
equity investments.

During that time, between 1990 and 1993, Jin-Yong Cai was an economist in Central Europe and South Asia for the World
Bank, and joined Morgan Stanley in 1994 while working with Shangzhi to develop
the CICC, which officially launched in 1995. Cai became the head of CICC’s
private equity group, then went on to work for Goldman Sachs from 2000-2012.
The CICC was the first ever investment banking venture in China, which played a
critical role in the Chinese economic transformation.

CDH Spin-off from CICC in 2002

Wu Shangzhi created a spin-off from CICC in 2002, along with Jiao Shuge and four other investment professionals. Their investors come from big companies, such as CICC, Morgan Stanley, Dow Chemical Company, McKinsey & Co, Arthur Andersen. As a leading investment fund manager focused on China, they manage over $21 billion in assets, have invested in more than 200 companies and helped over 70 companies list on the international and China’s domestic stock exchanges. They invest in several sectors, including; retail and consumer, industrial manufacturing, financial, high-tech services, medical, and real estate.

CDH, Oregon State Treasury, California Public Employees’ Retirement System and American Universities

In 2014 Chinese firm CDH closed its last flagship private-equity fund at a $2.5 billion hard cap. Some of the large U.S. investors were Oregon State Treasury, the California Public Employees’ Retirement System and the Texas County & District Retirement System. In 2014, Mayor Ted Wheeler of Portland Oregon, was the State Treasurer, and Chief Investment Officer John Skjervem of seven+ years just resigned on March 31, 2020.

The Chief Investment Officer, Yu Ben Meng, of California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) resigned on August 5, 2020, months after reports came out that the fund invested $3.1 billion in Chinese companies, some of which have been blacklisted by the U.S. government. Meng had been recruited to his position by the Chinese Communist Party through the Thousand Talents Program. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused the fund of investing in firms that supply the Chinese military.

In 2017, WSJ reported that CDH was looking to raise $2 billion to invest in Chinese companies.  “An uptick in appetite for Asian buyouts has fueled a fundraising boom in the region this year. Buyout houses focused on investing in China have raised a record $9.4 billion in 2017, according to Preqin Ltd. Firms raising capital to do deals across Asia have collected $24.5 billion, on pace to surpass a $24.8 billion record set in 2014.”

According to CalPERS 2018 performance report, they also have investments with Global Infrastructure Partners, where Jim Yong Kim and Jin-Yong Cai are both partners.

American universities have also invested in CDH. At a CDH convention, Shangzhi was asked why they are bothering with other services since they have already succeeded in private equity. “CDH’s total assets management is driven by the demand of the investors. Investors, especially the donation fund from American universities hoped to cooperate fully with an institution with rich experience, fine culture and risk control. They invested in our venture capital) and private equity, and endowed us with qualified foreign institutional investor (QFII). If there are no demands from the investors, i.e., no funds from them, things like this would not happen,” Shangzhi responded.

CDH Owns Smithfield Foods – The Largest Pork Producer in The World

Wu Shangzhi’s CDH and Goldman Sachs invested $256 million in a controlling stake in the Chinese largest pork producer, Shaunaghui Group. In 2009, Goldman sold its stake back to CDH for five times what it paid. Coincidentally, in 2009 CDH was raising $1.4 billion for a private equity fund targeting growth-stage companies in China. It was backed by Singapore’s GIC and the World Bank’s IFC, where both Shangzhi and Cai both worked for years.

Fast forward to 2013, when Shaunaghui, now called WH Group, purchased
Smithfield Foods, the largest pork producer in the U.S., making them the
largest pork producer in the world.

Smithfield Foods had previously acquired Premium Standard Farms in
Princeton, Missouri, farmland that was part of the Shaunaghui-Smithfield deal.
How did they accomplish this when Missouri law banned all foreign ownership of land?
Just one week prior to the purchase, the Missouri legislature amended the law
to allow for 1% of Missouri farmland to be owned by foreign interests (roughly
289,000 acres), which cleared the way for approval. This allowed them to
acquire more than 40,000 acres of Missouri farmland. Was there pay to play or
kickbacks for these legislatures that pulled this off just one week prior to
the sale?

Ironically, during the China coronavirus impacting the U.S., Smithfield Foods was one of the major meat producers closing up shop, and the Missouri location was sued by an advocacy group.

As of May 2020, CDH Real Estate Funds are managing 30 assets located across 14 states and 23 cities in the US.

This is a screenshot taken from their real estate page.

According to the USDA’s Economic Research Service, Chinese investment in the agricultural sector has grown tenfold between 2009-2016. China has been buying up land in the U.S. for quite some time, as have other foreign investors, and CDH’s WH Group (Smithfield) owns about 150,000 acres alone. In Ohio, foreigners have bought up a half million acres.

CDH and U.S.-Sanctioned SenseTime Partnered to Co-manage an AI Fund in 2017

CDH and SenseTime set out to raise roughly $453 million to invest in firms working on AI technology. SenseTime provides technology-based applications for facial recognition, video analyzing and autonomous driving, with major clients such as Huawei Technologies, China Mobile, and HNA Group. They operate large supercomputers in Chinese cities that handle its facial recognition software.

In October, 2019 the U.S. Commerce Department had placed 28 Chinese public security bureaus and companies on its “Entity List” to block them from doing business with American companies. SenseTime was on this list, which came after the sanction on Huawei due to national security. “Specifically, these entities have been implicated in human rights violations and abuses in the implementation of China’s campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, and high-technology surveillance against Uighurs, Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups,” the U.S. Commerce Department said.

Side
note: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust held over $50 million in
China Mobile common stocks, according to their 2018 tax filing. They also held
over $10 million in Hangzhou Hikvision Digital common stock, which is one of
the sanctioned Chinese companies that is a large security camera maker and
utilizes US-made features in their cameras, including pre-installed Microsoft
Windows 10.

These are but a few examples of the Chinese company’s
investments and reach.

Who is Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) Where Fmr World Bank President & Fmr Director of the IFC Are Currently Partners At?

An infrastructure investment fund founded in 2006, GIP is headquartered in New York City, with a focus on infrastructure assets in the energy, transportation, ports, and water/waste sectors. It operates as a partnership  consisting of 22 partners, with five being founding partners. They are currently one of the largest clean energy companies in the United States due to acquisitions.

When Jim Yong Kim resigned from the World Bank in 2019, three years
before his term was up, he went on to become a partner. Likewise, just three
months later, his former aide and head of the World Bank’s Arm International
Finance Corporation Jin-Yong Cai also became a partner at GIP after a 2-year
stint at Texas Pacific Group (TPG) Capital, who has
also partnered with CDH.

Obama Administration’s DOE Contracted with GIP

2011 marked a big year for the Obama administration dumping billions in
loans
into the “clean energy” sector. Three of those were designated to projects
owned by Global Infrastructure Partners. These took place just months before
Jim Yong Kim was appointed to World Bank President.

August 2011 – Agua Caliente project in Yuma County, AZ – $967 million

September 2011 – California Valley Solar Ranch project – $1.2 billion

September 2011 – Desert Sunlight project in Riverside County, CA – $1.5

A lot was
happening in 2011 and 2012 around Obama’s big “solar project” government loan guarantees.
President Trump’s Department of Energy just recently recovered $200 million
in taxpayer funds from a 2011 $737 million loan by the Obama administration to Tonopah
Solar Energy to finance the $1.1 billion Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in
Nevada that was deemed obsolete before it went online. These funds were
distributed just three weeks after Solyndra received $535 million from the
Obama administration, just prior to filing for bankruptcy.

In 2012, the heat was turned up again, when Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), subcommittee chairman of the Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, summoned executives of solar and geothermal companies that received stimulus money, and alleged that BrightSource won its loan guarantee based on its close relationship with the DOE and Obama administration. There were emails of concern, and the former chairman of BrightSource, John Bryson, had become Obama’s Secretary of Commerce. There were also concerns over First Solar’s chairman Michael Ahearn selling $450 million in shares over a three-day period.

Coincidentally, VP of Development Patrick Sullivan, joined Clearway Energy, owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, in 2013, after working as the Senior Director of Business Development for BrightSource Energy.

GIP Acquisitions and Investments

Acquired NRG Energy Inc.’s Renewable Energy Business in 2018

• Also includes controlling stake and 46% economic interest in NRG
Yield, Inc. which is diversified across wind, solar, natural gas technologies,
and owns thermal infrastructure assets with electric generation servicing
businesses, universities, hospitals, and government customers

• Also includes O&M and development businesses which operates
renewable power generation in 17 states

• Owns and operates the largest portion of Alta Wind Energy Centre in
Kern County, California, which is one of the world largest wind farms.

• In September 2018, Clearway Acquired SunPower, with a solar pipeline consisting of 4.7 gigawatt utility-scale solar development spanning 16 states. One year later, they earned a Chinese invention patent for their shingled solar cell manufacturing method. Their Performance Series panels are “the most deployed shingled cell solar panels in the world,” and were named a “top performer” by DNV GL, an independent energy expert and certification body. DNV GL is partnered with the Clinton Foundation, Richard Branson, and others in the Ten Island Pilot Program that Corey’s Digs reported on in 2018.

• Some subsidiaries include: Buckthorn Renewables LLC, Rattlesnake
Flat LLC, Somerset Wind LLC, Greenmountain Wind LLC

• Coincidentally, VP of Development Patrick Sullivan, joined Clearway in 2013, just one year after the DOE/BrightSource alleged scandal broke, after working as the Senior Director of Business Development for BrightSource Energy

GIP Partnered with China Investment Corp to Acquire Equis Energy in 2018

• Asia’s largest independent renewable energy power producer in
Asia-Pacific with over 180 assets in solar, wind, and hydro generation across
Australia, Japan, India and the Philippines

• It was the largest renewable energy generation acquisition in history

• GIP holds a 50% stake, CIC between 10-20%, and the Public Sector
Pension Investment Board of Canada also owns a 10-20% stake

GIP
purchased 35% of Mediterranean Shipping Company’s (MSC) terminal division,
Terminal Investment Limited SA (TIL) in 2013

• TIL invests in, develops and manages container terminals around the
world, with material ownership interests in 37 terminals in 26 countries

GIP has investments in multiple ports across the world, as well as a
few airports. All of the above is a mere snapshot of some of GIP’s bigger
acquisitions and investments, primarily in the energy sector.

Protecting Our Bulk-Power System and Technology from Bad Actors

If you think “nothing is happening,” you couldn’t be more wrong. There
are a lot of moving parts happening behind the scenes, and when smaller pieces
of the puzzle are released, many don’t connect the dots to see the bigger
picture. Most people are focused on indictments and justice – rightfully so –
however, there are critical actions being made in regards to our national
security, the daily activities we all carry out, and protections put in place on
a grander scale.

When reviewing the timeline of these actions, it is clear that President Trump publicly expressed these concerns as far back as 2012, long before he was president. Our power grid, electricity generation, renewables, manufactured parts, and technology, are the very things that allow us to thrive and survive. Without power, it would obviously be disastrous, upsetting our entire infrastructure and putting lives at risk.

Investments in electricity production from renewable energy exceeds $250 billion annually, with China leading the way. They helped create the fear of “climate change” to monopolize this industry and the manufacturing of parts to be sold to the U.S., while the Obama administration, Clintons, and others pushed for loans, grants, and legislation that helped China with this endeavor. U.S. pension funds and universities are investing in China, while China buys up land and the biggest pork producer in the U.S. When we look at just a few of those involved and see their nefarious connections, and their ties dating back to the World Bank and IFC, and observe the plays being made, one can understand the concerns over these power grabs and the need to lock it down, which the Trump administration has been doing while everyone has been distracted by Spygate and COVID.

Teachers Unions Support Guillotines, Strikes and Closures Over Children’s Welfare

By James Fitzgerald

Americans are sometimes accused
of ignorance over history and geography beyond their own shores. It was no
different last week, after the Chicago Teachers Union tweeted support for a
protest outside Jeff Bezos’ home, where an effigy was placed in a guillotine.
However, any history teachers among them might have pointed out that the French
Revolution ended up turning on its leaders.

The protestors, who were virtue
signaling for a $30 minimum wage outside the house of a man who reputedly earns
$4,000 a second, clearly had violence on their minds. 

The CTU tweet stated: “We are completely frightened by, completely impressed by and completely in support of wherever this is headed. #solidarity.”

The group describes itself as “caring, united, democratic”, but their explicit support for depictions of violence are anathema to wholesome traditional school values. A perusal of the comments under that tweet would suggest that many members do not share the vitriolic zeal.

Last week Forbes reported that
Bezos’ wealth had surpassed $200 billion, following Amazon’s bolstered revenues
as pandemic-tied shoppers flocked online.

Chicago Teachers Union Local 1, a collective bargaining body for Chicago’s teachers, have also been associated with the “Black Lives Matter” protests in the city. A “pinned” tweet states: “Cancelling the CPD contract and defunding the police, which either the City or Chicago Board of Ed has the authority to do, would free $33 million to be reinvested in at least 300 counselors, restorative justice coordinators and social workers for every school in the district.”

In July, the CTU and some other
teacher groups signed up for the “safe schools” plan, which set out various demands
to be met before teachers would return to classrooms during Covid conditions.
This group, which calls itself Journeys for Justice Alliance, has campaigned
for a moratorium on school privatization, 25,000 sustainable community schools,
an end to zero tolerance policies in public education, and an end to
standardized tests in schools.

Catholic schools in Chicago
announced earlier this month that they would reopen classes with a hybrid
model, but the CTU threatened to strike and Mayor Lori Lightfoot gave in to
their demands. Mayor Lightfoot now says public schools will not open for
in-person learning until the presidential election at the earliest.

The Catholic archdiocese has
cited a recent survey that suggested a majority of Catholic parents want their
schools to reopen with in-person learning. The archdiocese says it has
consulted with the Centers for Disease Control to formulate safety measures,
such as masks for everyone over the age of 2, temperature checks and limited
interactions, but some teachers have complained about being pressured by the
union. The diocese’s flexible approach in order to get children back into
classrooms has been resisted by the CTU, who have asked for additional “hazard”
premiums.

Across the country,
many parents are avoiding a return to public schools and instead enrolling
their children in private and parochial schools to get them back in the
classroom environment.

Unions such as the CTU now face
the prospect of private schools reopening while successfully containing Covid-19,
while public schools remain hampered by union demands.

They have also
pushed for an additional hour of every school day for teacher prep time and
professional development during time normally devoted to real-time teaching.
After hailing the remote-schooling condition at the start of the lockdown as a
victory, the CTU now wants danger money for teachers who enter an empty
classroom, though they have yet to clarify what specific hazards classrooms now
present.

The Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund report from 2019 lists Amazon Inc as its second biggest domestic equity holding. It seems bumper profits can soothe political angst under certain circumstances, and while tucked away on page 69.

This union, and all the others
that align themselves with violence and disorder, might take a history lesson
from China — where, during the Cultural Revolution, students turned their zeal
on the intellectuals and teachers of the day, who faced humiliation and
beatings. By aligning itself with violent protests, the CTU puts itself on a
war footing — but it shouldn’t forget
that its members are on the frontline.

Over in Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis and Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran have been in a legal tussle with teaching unions over the education commissioner’s July 6 emergency order requiring schools to reopen five days a week in August or risk losing state funding. On Friday last week, as reported in the Orlando Weekly, they were given a boost by a Tallahassee-based appeals court, which suspended a Leon County circuit judge’s ruling that said a state mandate for schools to reopen this month amid the pandemic was unconstitutional.

Judge Charles Dodson
twice last week sided with the Florida Education Association and the
Orange County teachers union in lawsuits challenging Mr. Corcoran’s order to open schools for in-person
learning. The unions had argued that Mr. Corcoran’s order violated the Florida Constitution’s guarantee of “safe”
and “secure” public schools.

Meanwhile, New York’s teacher unions are paving the way for strike action to prevent schools from reopening. The United Federation of Teachers has told its members that they can vote this week to approve the work action. It has asked each public school to submit a plan of action this week, which will be put before the delegate assembly.

New York City teachers
have not been on strike for nearly 50 years, and such action is far from
certain. The posturing will, however, put pressure on Mayor Bill de Blasio to
delay the scheduled return to in-person classes on September 10, something that
teachers and principals have been clamoring for.

As data from the Centers for Disease Control increasingly undermines the original death tolls from Covid and its likely impact on health, struggling parents are left to juggle work commitments and homeschooling for their children. For single parents, the choice of food on the table or remote lessons is becoming stark.

The California Supreme Court has asked Governor Gavin Newson to respond to lawsuits, filed by a coalition of parents, private schools, a charter school and the Orange County Board of Education, seeking to enjoin his orders that bar schools opening for in-person learning.

“By closing the
schools of California to in-person learning, he [Newsom] is creating havoc for
parents and children,” attorney Robert Tyler told the California Globe. “The
California Constitution requires that all children receive an equal education.
Our position is that he is creating an unequal burden on economically
disadvantaged families.”

One writ petition
filed by a group of private schools says that the policy discriminates against
them because they do not receive state funding that makes online learning
possible. It also says that the closure order violates the California
constitution and the United States Constitution because of its “interference
with petitioners contractual rights”.

One union — the American Federation of Teachers’ super PAC, AFT Solidarity — was planning to pay $180,000 to run a commercial criticizing President Trump during the Republican National Convention. Fox News allegedly refused to run the ad after raising questions over its accuracy. The ad alleged that Republican leaders failed to provide educators with enough personal protective equipment and effectively devise a safe re-opening strategy for schools.

Where does this hyper political
agenda and grandstanding leave teachers in its ranks who wish to have a
plurality of views? Now might be the time to break ranks with unions that seek
to capitalize on crisis after crisis to further their sometimes contradictory,
and now disturbing ambitions in Chicago. If the latest tweet is a gauge, then
targeted hate campaigns against individuals are firmly on the chalk board.
Parents and students may think this has crossed the line.

Certain types of revolutions have
a tendency to turn on their participants. It’s what you might call learning the
hard way.
