Daily Record Investigates My Home and Finances

ORIGINAL LINK

The day after I publish my article accusing the corporate media of being an active part of the conspiracy against Alex Salmond, and of giving disgracefully selective, slanted and biased coverage of the evidence of his trial, the Daily Record has decided to investigate my home and personal finances. Is not life full of little coincidences?

I received this email from the Daily Record’s political editor.

I replied to him politely. This was probably a mistake – I should have just told him where to go.

But I cannot get over the idea that this is absolutely illegitimate. It is a plain attempt to bully and harass me for having published the truth about what really lay behind the Alex Salmond case. Who put up the Daily Record up to launching an investigation into my personal circumstances? It is of course the paper to which was leaked the very detailed and most salacious of the false accusations against Salmond. Who trawled the land register to find my home purchase?

The key point is not one mainstream media journalist has even attempted to refute the facts of my article J’accuse. It is packed with facts. Might not the political editor of the Daily Record better spend his time researching the conspiracy against Alex Salmond, rather than threatening an independent journalist for the crime of doing journalism?

I greatly dislike bullies. I do hope you feel the same. Mr Hutcheon’s contact details are there. If any of you feel like phoning, texting or emailing Mr Hutcheon to suggest he might be better employed investigating the facts of my article about the Salmond fit-up, rather than pursuing a journalist, you would earn my eternal gratitude.

War With the International Banking Cartel? Or NESARA?

ORIGINAL LINK

The story about the Fed merging with the Treasury, with the Fed OWING the $22 trillion debt and the Treasury OWNING the secured assets and interest on the US’ $22 trillion debt, thus making the debt “the asset of the American People” has really gotten a lot of us excited. Wouldn’t that be amazing, if true?

My Internet-illiterate, yet investment-savvy friend (who gave me garbled info about the Federal Reserve website’s URL change) insists that the Treasury hasn’t “taken over” the Fed. However, he does say that “the man in the White House figured out how to cut a deal and get things done – it will save a lot of businesses.”

He says that what the Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) devised by the Trump Administration will do is enable the Treasury to finance this $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package WITHOUT INTEREST.

Another person who does not believe for one second that our national debt has become our national asset is Catherine Austin Fitts.

She responded on Sunday about the Q post, that it “Described turning over enormous Fed Powers to BlackRock and described that as putting Patriots in charge of the Fed. The guy who runs BlackRock was going to be Clinton’s Secretary of Treasury. I used to work with BlackRock. NO PATRIOTS THERE!”

BlackRock is the world’s largest asset manager, with $7.4 trillion in assets under management. It is a leading player of the Globalist financier establishment.

Still, Q posted about these SPVs for a reason…

Remember ten days ago, I told you about that weird phone call my retired Marine friend received from a 3-Star General? This friend has had an asset recovery business for years and the premise of the phone call was to potentially hire him as a contractor to transport massive amounts of prisoners – people who were about to be arrested. To whit, “160,000 in 90 days.”

Clearly, the briefing was laden with disinformation. The General said the financial assets of the Globalist bankster cabal would be seized to repay the US Government’s $22 trillion debt, the IRS and the Fed will be abolished and thereafter, there would only be a consumption tax. There would be medical breakthroughs, the release of suppressed information about alternative energy and the long-awaited disclosure about extraterrestrial life – plus travel to planets outside the Solar System for regular folks.

All of this is straight-up NESARA. Why was this general talking about NESARA?

Have any of you ever received those starry-eyed emails about NESARA? I have. Ten years ago, I was being deluged with emails from folks who were positively enraptured by NESARA. It’s the original Hope Porn. I guess they didn’t do a very good job of explaining it to me, because I came away associating NESARA with proponents of Hatonn, the Arcturian Council and the Ashtar Command.

Well, I just found out something crazy.

NESARA, which stands for the National Economic Security and Recovery Act was conceived by Harvey Francis Bernard, who held a doctorate in Systems Theory that he applied to economics.

NESARA was an economic recovery proposal based on the root causes he identified, namely that debt is the number one economic factor inhibiting the growth of the economy and that compound interest is the number one “moral evil”. In the mid-1990s, he sent copies to members of Congress, believing it would pass quickly on its merits – but it was ignored. In 2000, he released the proposal into the public domain on his website.

NESARA was subsequently hijacked by a New Age “cybercult queen”, Shaini Candace Goodwin (aka “Dove of Oneness”), who claimed the act had been signed into law by President Bill Clinton and that it was about to be implemented at 10AM on September 11, 2001 – but that the computers and data on the beneficiaries of the trillions in “Prosperity Funds” were destroyed in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, which she claimed were orchestrated by President George W Bush for the specific purpose of distracting everybody from NESARA.

NESARA mushroomed into a dominant theme of an entire international ecosystem of New Age luminaries and extraterrestrial contactees, including Sheldon Nidle, Jennifer Lee and Sherry Shriner, who all published about it regularly and still do.

On his deathbed in 2005, Harvey Bernard heard about Goodwin’s claims about NESARA and denied NESARA had been enacted into law, condemning Goodwin’s allegations as a disinformation campaign. Goodwin, in turn, dismissed Bernard’s NESARA Institute as a disinformation front for the Bush family (!)

But here’s where it gets REALLY crazy: The title of Bernard’s NESARA proposal is Draining the Swamp: Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform.

One of Trump’s top three slogans is associated with all of the craziness above – and we are living it now!

GREG REESE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Godfather of the Rothschild banking cartel, Mayer Amschel Rothschild said, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”

In a recent Bloomberg article, ‘The Fed’s Cure Risks Being Worse than the Disease’, Jim Bianco explains what is now happening with the Federal Reserve Bank in their response to the coronavirus. He writes, “This scheme essentially merges the Fed and Treasury into one organization, so meet your new Fed Chairman, Donald J Trump.”

Did President Trump just nationalize the Federal Reserve Bank? On June 4th, 1963, President John F Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110, which many believe was an effort to transfer power from the Federal Reserve Bank to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve notes with silver certificates, thereby taking the power away from the international banking cartels. Less than six months later, President Kennedy was assassinated and his move against the Fed was reversed.

During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln printed $400 million worth of Greenbacks, a debt-free, interest-free money, independent of international bank control. In response, the London Times wrote that, “If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic should become indurated down to a fixture then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”

The bankers were not willing to lose power and the Bank of England went on to fund the Confederacy. Weeks prior to Lincoln’s assassination, assassin John Wilkes Booth spent time in Montreal, known as the “Confederate capital of Canada” and was found after the assassination with a banknote from Ontario Bank. Booth’s personal manager, was banker, Joseph Simonds. After Lincoln was killed, power was restored to the international banking cartel.

The National Economic Security and Recovery Act, known as NESARA was a set of proposed economic reforms suggested during the 1990s by Harvey Francis Bernard. Bernard created the NESARA proposal during the late 1980s. He sent copies to members of Congress but was ignored. In 2001, he established the NESARA Institute and published the second edition of his book in 2005, re-titling it, ‘Draining the Swamp: The NESARA Story Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform’.

The policies included replacing the Income Tax with a National Sales Tax, abolishing compound interest on unsecured loans and returning to a “bimetallic currency” (gold and silver), which he claimed would result in zero percent inflation and a more stable economy.

There is a big buzz on the Internet that President Trump is implementing this plan. There is also speculation that this is part of a huge global economic reset, GESARA to be decided at the international World Court of The Hague. If this is true, certainly this decision has been decided years ago and we are just now feeling the effects.

The coronavirus scare is beginning to look like a false alarm but the reaction is looking just like a false flag and it seems that when we come out the other end of this the world will be different.

Social Distancing During the Black Death

ORIGINAL LINK

One of the comforts of studying history is that, no matter how bad things get, you can always find a moment in the past when things were much, much worse. Some commentators on our current crisis have been throwing around comparisons to earlier pandemics, and the Black Death of 1347 — 50 inevitably gets mentioned. Please. The Black Death wiped out half the population of Europe in the space of four years. In some places the mortality was far swifter and deadlier than that. The novelist Giovanni Boccaccio, who gave us the most vivid picture of the Black Death in literature, estimated that 100,000 people died in Florence in the four months between March and July 1348. The population of the city in 1338, according to one contemporary chronicler, stood at 120,000.

Boccaccio at the time was a city tax official and saw the whole thing at ground level. Every morning bodies of the dead—husbands, wives, children, servants—were pushed out into the street where they were piled on stretchers, later on carts. They were carried to the nearest church for a quick blessing, then trundled to graveyards outside the city for burial. As the death toll rose, traditional burial practices were abandoned. Deep trenches were dug into which bodies were dumped in layers with a thin covering of soil shoveled on top. Boccaccio writes that “no more respect was accorded the dead than would today be shown to dead goats.”

Like COVID-19, the disease spread with bewildering rapidity, but unlike in the modern pandemic, it infected everyone, young and old, rich and poor, not mainly the old and infirm. And again unlike the current virus, the effects of bubonic plague were particularly humiliating. Tumor-like growths as big as apples, called “bubos,” would appear in the groin or armpit. Gangrenous blotches would appear on hands and feet causing the skin to turn black and die. The victims would start coughing up blood, all their bodily fluids stank and their breath became putrid. “The stench of dead bodies, sickness and medicines seemed to fill and pollute the whole atmosphere.” There was no dying with dignity during the Black Death.

It’s no surprise that a kind of extreme social distancing became the norm, even without urging from governments. Boccaccio’s stories are shocking. Everyone ran in panic from the sick. Neighbors shunned neighbors, relatives relatives. Children abandoned elderly parents and priests their flocks. Incredibly, “even fathers and mothers refused to nurse and assist their own children, as though they did not belong to them.” Some reacted by locking themselves up with a few friends in some comfortable place stocked with food and fine wines. They would entertain themselves with music and refuse to receive any news of the dead. Others, often those without the means to escape, became fatalistic and began looting the houses of the dead, stuffing themselves with food and drink, heedless of the risks of infection.

It is not yet certain that COVID-19 will become the fifth endemic coronavirus in the world today. The far more deadly bubonic plague long remained endemic in Europe, turning pandemic again some 17 times before its last outbreak in 1664 — 67—about once a generation. Over time a kind of bush telegraph developed in cities to keep track of new outbreaks. Transmitting news of the plague became a regular topic of private and public correspondence. The questions sound familiar to us now: Has the plague come to Bologna? How long has it been there? How many are infected? How many have died? Has a quarantine been imposed? Public authorities, predictably, took drastic measures to isolate the sick. In Venice, physicians were forbidden to leave the city during plague—as today, there was no social distancing for medical personnel. Plague doctors were required to wear the premodern equivalent of the hazmat suit: a long linen gown, a hat covering the hair, eyeglasses, and a mask with a long beak containing antidotes and perfumes to mask the stench of death. Today, the plague doctor’s dress still exists as a popular costume during Carnival.

Were there any silver linings to so horrible a pestilence? There were surely a few, though some of them remain speculative even now. Florentine Republicans began to appreciate Madonna Peste (Lady Pestilence) when she carried off their great nemesis, the duke of Milan, in 1402, at a critical moment during their long war with the great tyrant. After the Black Death there was an “inheritance effect” that led to far greater concentrations of wealth among those who survived. Some modern historians have claimed that this concentrated wealth led to an upmarket “investment in culture” that made possible the Renaissance itself. That’s a bit of a stretch.

Plague Doctor (wikicommons)

But there was one lasting benefit of plague that is with us still. In Renaissance Italy, the most effective form of social distancing turned out to be villeggiatura—withdrawing from the city to a country farm or villa and waiting for the pestilence to subside. After the first few outbreaks of plague in the later 1300s, many city folk began to invest in country estates, in part to secure reliable food supplies for their families in times of crisis. They began to spend more time in the country, especially during the hot summer months when the plague was at its worst. The Medici eventually owned 27 villas in the Tuscan countryside, many of them designed and decorated by leading architects like Giuliano da Sangallo and painters like Filippino Lippi and Jacopo Pontormo. Villa life became generally popular for wealthier bourgeois families, and over time a villa culture developed. Boccaccio’s Decameron provided an early literary model. It depicted a group of noble young men and women escaping to the hills outside Florence during the plague, entertaining each other with witty stories, song, and dancing. Renaissance literati, being passionate lovers of antiquity, adored Cicero and longed to imitate the urbane conversations on literature and philosophy he described in his dialogues, held in his classical villa at Tusculum. Even the less sophisticated learned to enjoy more spacious living in the country, reading in cool, manicured gardens or viewing scenic landscapes. They began to cultivate summer sports, musical events, and festivals. The summer vacation was born.

RIP Federal Reserve

ORIGINAL LINK

A savvy investor friend called me last night and asked me how it is that the Federal Reserve Bank’s website address is suddenly now on a “.gov” domain?

He checks the site regularly and he’s had a bookmark for it in his browser forever but the site’s address has always been a “.org” site. Suddenly, it’s federalreserve.gov.

I was happily excited to hear this because his question confirmed the rumors that had been swirling on Twitter all evening, that the Fed and Treasury are being merged into one organization.

Despite this being incredibly newsworthy, there has been no public announcement of this and it only seems to have been published in a negative opinion piece by Jim Bianco on Bloomberg and syndicated by Yahoo! News.

The only reason why MAGA Twitter was aware of this obscure piece – and jubilant over it – was because someone tweeted the link and then Q almost immediately posted it, at 4:58:17PM (17:17) with the comment, “This is not another [4] year election. Q”

“Haven’t you heard?” I asked my friend, “Twitter has been celebrating joyously over the demise of the Federal Reserve Bank all evening.”

My friend had not heard because he he’s not a Twitter addict. (LOL)

According to the Bloomberg piece, the Fed will finance a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to allow them to buy commercial paper, asset-backed securities, corporate bonds and bond ETFs in the secondary market:

“The Treasury, using the Exchange Stabilization Fund, will make an equity investment in each SPV and be in a ‘first loss’ position. What does this mean? In essence, the Treasury, not the Fed, is buying all these securities and backstopping of loans; the Fed is acting as banker and providing financing. The Fed hired BlackRock Inc. to purchase these securities and handle the administration of the SPVs on behalf of the owner, the Treasury.

“In other words, the federal government is nationalizing large swaths of the financial markets. The Fed is providing the money to do it. BlackRock will be doing the trades.

“This scheme essentially merges the Fed and Treasury into one organization. So, meet your new Fed chairman, Donald J. Trump.”

On Twitter, @3Days3Nights explained it like this:

“Old Fed – [They] OWNED the secured assets & interest on our $22T debt while our US Treasury OWED all the $22T debt.
New Fed – US Treasury will OWN the secured assets & interest on our $22T debt & the Fed will OWE all the $22T debt.
This will take a few months. #QANON

“For example, our Treasury will now treat the NewFed like the NYSE. A broker of sorts that owns no collateral. It just processes transactions for our Treasury for micro fees.

“The KEY is that our Treasury will hold the collateral on debt & not the Fed. That makes debt our asset.

“So when our Treasury loans money to a company like Goldman, it receives a convertible note as equity. If the company fails to pay, our Treasury converts debt to equity and owns a big chunk of Goldman. Old way let the Fed own the convertible note. Outrageous. Those days are dead.

“Even better, out of the $22T in debt, about $6T could be waived immediately because it is a non-marketable security owed internally to another branch of government. I expect all non-marketable debt to disappear over time. Just simply remove it from the Treasury balance sheet.

“Since the NewFed will be a clearinghouse of sorts, and since we clearly now have control of it, we can force nations to remove their deep state in exchange for a chance to participate in this new era of debt freedom. Iran, NK & other rogue nations will play ball for debt relief.

“Never forget that the Fed used blackmail and coercion to convince our Congress to vote them into existence over 100 years ago. And they never stopped using the same tactic to make sure no law was ever passed to legally remove them from power. Until today.

“Now ask yourself what entity funded the creation of the Fed in the first place. And what same entity has people pay them to freely confess their sins to a non-paid employee only to allow their mafia branch to then blackmail that same person into submission.

“Less debt on Treasury balance sheet means less interest payments. And it frees up trillions to remove debt from college students, mortgage interest, car loans, corporate debt, which stimulates the economy to create jobs which generates more tax revenue which means lower taxes.

“Restructure not reset. Gentle…

“The changeover just started. It is not anywhere near complete. However our Treasury is raiding the Fed legally right now. We are using the Fed’s own tools against it because they never anticipated a Cabinet or Congress that couldn’t be coerced into doing what they wanted.”

According to Dave at the X22 Report, this means that, “Trump and the Patriots have taken the first step in getting rid of the central bank system. It has now been confirmed, other nations now are going to be moving in on their central bank establishments…

“We knew this was coming. We knew that this day was going to arrive.

“What’s the next stage? Take control of the currency. Bring us back to sound money. Who’s waiting on deck? Judy Shelton [Trump economic advisor known for her advocacy for a return to the gold standard and for her criticisms of the Federal Reserve] and others.

“Once this merges into the Treasury – and actually Judy Shelton has mentioned this – she will then, once she’s on the board, she will then restructure the entire system.

“We are now moving in a completely different direction. Everything that we knew about the system; the way it works, it’s about to change. We’ve said this for quite a while.

“We are now watching it, in real time change. We will no longer live under debt. We will no longer live under a corporate central bank system. We will no longer struggle the way we’ve been struggling.

“Everything that we knew, everything that we were taught, everything that they were telling us it’s all going to change. Remember, when the central bank’s establishment came into existence, everything changed for the people; in the ’40s, in the ’70s in 2008, it got harder and harder for the people.

“The currency will no longer devalue the way it has. We will not see inflation, which really means the currency is devaluing. It takes more dollars to buy that same item. We will not see that anymore we will not have to live on credit. We will not have to work the way we’ve been working and come home with nothing in our check. It’s all about to change.

“And an anon on the boards wrote something very interesting. ‘We have just taken the power away from the central bank establishment.’ This is what he wrote:

“‘Mnuchin just bankrupted the Fed, Goldman, Sachs, JP Morgan, Chase, etc. It started. The market liquidity is now controlled by Steve Mnuchin and the Treasury Department. That also means we own all central bank requests for credit, for all 186 foreign nations. Folks, a power transfer just went down. The world just went from asking the Rothschilds for credit swaps to asking Steve Mnuchin and the US Treasury for credit swaps.’

“BOOM. We have just seen it happen. This is not about a four-year election this is about a new way of life and it’s happening right now.”

Benjamin Fulford on Fake Pandemics and System Reset

ORIGINAL LINK

Canadian alternative news journalist and Former Forbes Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief, Benjamin Fulford is joined by Hanna Kazahari and Fabiola Tsugami-Shaba, of the the Polish-Japanese language YouTube channel, FAB News to discuss world events on the 9th anniversary of March 11 Fukushima disaster.

Of the coronavirus pandemic, Fulford says, “It’s very clear that this is a bio weapon and it’s not having the intended effect they wanted it to kill millions of people and fortunately – I shouldn’t say fortunately, in the sense that 4,000 people dead but fortunately, in the sense that millions haven’t died – it’s not nearly as bad as the intended but Fort Detrick, the US bioweapons research laboratories been shut down the scientists who created these viruses have been arrested…

“But nonetheless, like I say, they’re gonna still use this for a major propaganda exercise but please don’t let them scare you it’s fear porn…as long as you’re healthy and eat properly and sleep and rest and everything you’re not going to catch anything…

“26,000 scientists signed a petition saying 5G is dangerous. It’s a very similar wavelength of human thought and they used it in South Africa and experiment to manipulate mobs, either calm them down or to get them excited. I have this from a South African secret police whistleblower.

“And I’ve heard now…the CIA sent some people in from Thailand to Wuhan to check out the situation and they say that about 3 million people were killed and it was caused not by a virus but by a satellite overwhelming their 5G network, which they just installed and using it to emit dangerous electromagnetic radiation and that’s what caused the damage there.

“So, it was a serious attack on China and the people responsible will be brought to justice…They’re using the virus as a cover for the 5G, in most cases. Certainly, in Wuhan.

“Here, in Japan they were going to try to have 5G all over the country by end of March and I’ve been fighting against the…mafiosi and Abe cabinet, to make sure that doesn’t happen. I think that we’re going to stop it in Japan…

“Ebola is a bioweapon, a lot of these new types of Bird Flus were bioweapons but they also create antidotes for themselves, so that they don’t catch their own pandemic and that’s what they’ve been using. They’re also using Ebola drugs for this new bioweapon and like I say, it’s not gonna be nearly as bad as they try to make it out to be.

“Mostly about fear and as I said before, it’s almost entirely old people with pre-existing conditions and even more, I hate to say this but it’s mostly old Asian people, especially men that are getting it, because of the way it was designed…

“They have a NATO military exercise going on in Europe, example, where 40,000 US troops have been deployed and I have been told that they’re being used to [make] arrests in Europe, in Switzerland, all over Europe; they’re arresting mainly bankers, as part of military move against the Satan-worshiping cult that owns the central banks. So, it’s being used as a cover for a military campaign against Satan-worshipers located at the top of the corporate power structure…

“It’s about carrying out a series of arrests. I’ve heard there’s going to be a lot of people arrested in Germany and Switzerland all over Europe. So, simply it’s a cover for a a large military campaign to take out a mafia who have been proven to be trying to kill 90% of the world’s population, so we’re removing a dangerous cancer from the top of the power system, in the West,that’s whats happening…

“The owners of the United States of America Corporation, which was established in 1871 and is not to be mistaken to the Republic of the United States of America, that was established in 1776 – the owners of this corporation went bankrupt on February 16th and that’s been the trigger for all these things and it was the owners of the Corporation, in a desperate move to keep in power who were behind the attacks on Wuhan and a lot of other nasty incidents but they are losing.

“We are rounding them up. Their ability to terrorize us is going to end soon and yeah, that’s why all these CEOs are quitting.”

The Threat of 5G

ORIGINAL LINK

Recently, we’ve discussed the obscured health effects of 5G millimeter wave technology and now this video has an excellent, brief discussion of how 5G doesn’t merely represent faster speeds and more data, it takes the surveillance state to such an extreme, it’s unacceptable.

Brigadier General Robert S. Spalding, author of ‘Stealth War’ explains, “If you go back to 2007, when the iPhone came out, the top 5 [corporations], in market cap were AT&T, General Electric, Microsoft, Exxon, Mobil and Shell.

“The iPhone comes out in in 2007…I had one – 3G networking – it’s not a very good experience. 4G network comes out…now, you’ve got something, right?

“When you took the the platform, which was the iPhone married up to the 4G network, which is the pipe for data – and it was a fast enough pipe – and now, you can create the apps services and business models that in 10 years, led to the top 5 [corporations] in market cap being Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google and Microsoft (FAANGs)…

“Look at that iPhone: It’s a hardware-software, tightly-integrated, closed-walled system, like Steve Jobs liked – and the data was encrypted. Why was the data encrypted? Why did San Bernardino happen? Because Apple’s an American company…they encrypt the phone…it’s meant to be a private device. Why? It’s an American product.

“Fast-forward to 2009. China starts to look at that and says, ‘Okay, we want to dominate the next level, not just the technology, we want the app services and business models to be Chinese companies.’

“So, Huawei gets hundreds of billions of dollars to develop 5G and ZTE – and then you have Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent.

“So, they’re there, behind the Chinese firewall. They’re protected. You can’t have the FAANGs going in there. It’s just the BATs that control the economy within China…

“So, you walk into a restaurant after you’ve ordered your food and a camera picks you up and it says, ‘David, welcome. Here’s your food. ‘ So, you you’re starting to get the feel of what a 5G world is.

“And what is a 5G world? The platform is the network. So, this is mobile computing, paired with the pipe. 5G is computing and networking combined, on the same platform.

“So, this (points to cellphone) goes away. You walk outside your door and you say ‘Uber.’ You don’t get on your phone and say, ‘I want an Uber.’ The camera picks up your face or microphone [and the car] picks you up…then the Uber shows up…That’s what 5G is.

“In the Uber, there’s a camera on the car that sees you, knows who you are. Doesn’t have to ask you your name you get in and you go to wherever you want…

“In the 4G world, this (indicating cellphone) is a platform. It’s yours. You don’t want to be built [into it]. You don’t want to be part of all of that data…If you don’t want all that data to be out there about what you’re doing, just don’t carry one of these, right? Just opt out.

“In a 5G world, you cannot opt out…In the 5G world, not only can you not opt out, because it’s built around the city, it’s not in your phone, anymore.

“Not only can you not opt out, you don’t know who owns the data. Everything that you do can be watched and…by 2022, there’s going to be…two people for every camera in China.

“They have a billion…cameras in China with Artificial Intelligence for facial recognition. So all of this is getting built right now in China – and who’s helping them do it? Microsoft, Google, right? All of these companies that want to deploy this world into our country!

“So, 4G network, 10,000 devices per square mile. 5G network, 3 million devices per square mile…the connectivity explodes.

“So, that allows you to put devices literally everywhere, that can make your life more ‘convenient’ or can track you…you never have to carry a wallet, you never have to carry key it’s all done on your phone. You can pay any anybody anywhere for anything – and they do. 900 million people are on WeChat and they spend 90% of their time in-app, doing things…that’s how wired Beijing is right now.”

"The World You Lived In No Longer Exists" - Mike Krieger Exposes The 'Massive Power Grab'

ORIGINAL LINK
"The World You Lived In No Longer Exists" - Mike Krieger Exposes The 'Massive Power Grab'

Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away

– Percy Shelley, Ozymandias

It didn’t take long for the most opportunistic, nefarious and corrupt actors in the U.S. to turn a pandemic crisis into another massive power grab attempt. We’ve seen it before; after 9/11 and also throughout the response to the financial crisis a decade ago. The irredeemable sociopaths who always make the big, important decisions used those crises to consolidate wealth and power. They’re going for it again.

There are many examples, but let me list a few:

– The EARN IT bill, by which senators are attempting to destroy widespread public use of encryption, i.e. private communications. (EFF)

– The White House and the CDC are asking Facebook, Google and other tech giants to give them greater access to Americans’ smartphone location data. (CNBC)

– The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies. (Politico)

– U.S. Senators are attempting to use the crisis as an opportunity to pull off a gigantic corporate coup. (Matt Stoller, BIG)

"U.S Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is seeking to tap executives from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and other Wall Street firms to help oversee more than $200 billion in bailout packages."

You almost just have to laugh at this point.https://t.co/7eqAObKamG

— Michael Krieger (@LibertyBlitz) March 23, 2020

Then there’s the really big one, the Federal Reserve. An institution with more unaccountable power to shape and manipulate our world than any other, yet whose actions remain subject to virtually zero public debate.

The Federal Reserve is lending to speculators and the loans are non-recourse, meaning that the speculator doesn't lose anything if they can't repay the loan.

This is a *direct* billionaire bailout. https://t.co/snHLVwxpwY

While we’re at it…

Lost in Fed shuffle today, they relaxed bank total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC) buffer restriction *specifically* to allow banks to continue discretionary bonus payments. Don't just read the press release. Read the rule.

I wrote about the scam that is the Federal Reserve last year in the post, Monetary Looting, and what they’re doing now makes those repo operations look like child’s play.

Lost in Fed shuffle today, they relaxed bank total loss-absorbing capacity (TLAC) buffer restriction *specifically* to allow banks to continue discretionary bonus payments. Don't just read the press release. Read the rule.

— Ben Hunt (@EpsilonTheory) March 23, 2020

We often get distracted debating the implications of Fed actions, and in the process lose sight of the bigger picture. The real question we need to be asking is why do we allow a handful of unelected banker welfare agents the right to shape our entire world? It’s a crazy system, and until we start questioning the underlying premises of everything about our world, we’ll remain confused and subjugated.

That said, I remain more optimistic than ever that once we get through this crisis and a rough transition period, a far better era awaits on the other side. I say this because I believe this pandemic will shake enough people to such an extent they’ll emerge from it very different people with a more enlightened understanding of the world and their roles in it. An event like this can make people less conscious, or it can make them more conscious. I think humanity will expand its consciousness.

Of course, the future is not written in stone. Each and every one of us needs to grow up and step up if we’re going to build a better world. We each have our skillsets, so I ask everyone reading this to think about how they can repurpose their talents to the great work of ushering in a new era. I don’t do any of this to change the world. I can’t do that. I do this to inspire as many people as possible to change their own worlds. Then everything changes.

If I had to summarize where we’ve been and where I think we’re going, it would be with the following.

2010-2020 was mostly bullshit. Financial engineering scams, war and oligarchy looting.

Once we pass this crisis period I expect real innovation this decade. New industries that will change the world.

The last 10 years was bullshit.

— Michael Krieger (@LibertyBlitz) March 23, 2020

The world you lived in no longer exists, but the world to come has not yet been created. The worst people in society will attempt to create it in their image, but we can’t allow that. We must step up and create it ourselves. It’s entirely possible. Get to work.

FBI Surveillance | Full Measure



Amid the coronavirus panic, a quiet investigation has begun on Capitol Hill led by Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham. He’s already begun interviewing unnamed government officials. It involves accountability for the FBI’s improper wiretaps against a government citizen who happened to be af

ORIGINAL LINK

It’s Not Socialism. It’s Another Mega Wealth Transfer.

Amid the COVID-19 panic, it has hardly been noticed that Carphone Warehouse went bust, with 2,900 people losing their jobs. Its co-founder, David Ross, is of course the billionaire that Boris Johnson claimed paid for his luxury holiday to Mustique, whereas Ross claimed he only organised it. Who actually paid is one of those Johnson peccadilloes, like the promotion of Jennifer Arcuri, the Garden Bridge fiasco, the Guppy conversation over beating up Stuart Collier, the Russian Influence report, the question of how many children he really has – I could go on rather a long while here – which will be discreetly downplayed by the state and media nexus.

Ross, like Branson and so many others of the “entrepreneurs” that we are taught to worship, came from a very wealthy background and had the great advantages of capital and connections to boost him up the ladder. To be fair to Ross, unlike for example Philip Green, there is no suggestion that he made his fortune from Carphone Warehouse by systematic asset-stripping. What he did do, which is typical of capitalism today, is with the other directors systematically and legally remove capital as it accumulated from the company into their own personal bank accounts. In the long term this left Carphone Warehouse unable to restructure and adapt to changed market conditions, which it needed to do, as its High Street model failed for reasons unrelated to the current health crisis. Ross also had illegally used his shares as collateral for £162 million of personal loans, for which this major Tory party donor has inexplicably never been prosecuted.

Ross had inherited a very large chunk of shares in, and the chairmanship of, Cosalt Ltd, a maritime supplies company. It went bust with £70 million debt and a £50 million pensions deficit, which ruined the lives of many employees and ex-employees. Inexplicably, after it went bankrupt its best assets were sold by the administrators Price Waterhouse at a knockdown price to… major Tory Party donor David Ross. Who thus made money from his own family company going bust and its pensioners being shafted.

Inexplicably, major Tory Party donor David Ross was not disqualified as a director of other companies by the Insolvency Service when Cosalt, of which he was a chairman, went bankrupt.

About 7% of Ross’s wealth would pay the entire Carphone Warehouse staff being made redundant for a year. That of course will never happen because it is absolutely contrary to the model of capitalism currently operating, in which the ultra wealthy view companies as sources of short term wealth extraction and feel zero connection to the workforce.

There is room to be congratulatory of Rishi Sunak’s active interventionism in the face of the economic crisis caused by the reaction to coronavirus. Many of his interventionist measures are very good, in particular in subsidising wages. It has been rightly and widely noted that to date there is not enough to support those self-employed in the gig economy, while to rely on universal credit to support anybody in crisis is plainly insufficient. But I am here more concerned with the larger macroeconomic measures. Quantitative easing as ever will merely push more money into the financial institutions for them to looad into financial instruments of zero real economic benefit.

The vast bulk of the £330 billion business bailout will find its way in huge tranches into mega-companies. The airline industry has already requested £7.5 billion, to give just one example. That is a series of simple large cheques for an overstretched civil service to write. I strongly suspect that the loans to small businesses, started today, will be slow and bureaucratic and difficult to access. They will be subject to bank interest – the bankers always win – which for a period will be paid by the taxpayer. Many of these measures when you analyse them are in the long term more transfers of money from the taxpayers to the banks.

It has been widely noted that money is suddenly magically available which was denied to industrial strategy and to the NHS for decades. But do not be fooled; this is not a conversion to Keynes by the Tories. In bailing out the airlines, Branson is not going to be asked to put back one penny of his personal wealth, and nor is David Ross nor any of the other billionaires. Those who have made vast fortunes in our ever-expanding wealth gap are not going to be asked to put anything back into the companies or system which they exploited. Massive state subsidies will predominantly go to the biggest companies and benefit the paid agency of the bankers. You and I will pay. The taxpayer will ultimately pick up the tab through what may prove to be another decade of austerity imposed as a result of another transfer of wealth from us to banks, financial institutions and big companies. The small and medium companies which will go to the wall – and a great many will – are going to provide rich pickings in a few months time for the vultures of the hedge funds and other disaster capitalists.

It is fashionable to write articles at the moment stating the Government has discovered the value of socialist intervention. I suspect history will show that nothing could be further from the truth.

The Crash Of The "Everything Bubble" Is Here - And It's Not Going Away Anytime Soon

The Coronavirus Explained and What You Should Do

ORIGINAL LINK

New York City is currently the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the US, reporting over 15,000 cases, which is 1,500 cases more than the rest of the US combined. Late last night, I received this Facebook message from my cousin, who’s lived in New York City her whole life:

“I have 4 friends in ICU with COVID-19 all younger and healthier than you or me. I’ve never had friends hospitalized with flu. This is not the same. Please don’t add to the chaos and misinformation. This is real. My friends are fighting for their lives.” And she sent me this link from the World Health Organization.

Given her legitimate concerns and what must be a tense environment in the City, I won’t remind her that I was warning city dwellers who use public transportation to be careful way back in January, in a post that caused some to unfriend me on social media.

We are all fellow targets of an unprecedented hybrid war waged by the Globalists that has pitted us against each other since Donald Trump took office, consisting largely of information warfare disseminated by the Mainstream Media, with biological- and economic warfare now added to this siege.

Dr. Francis Boyle, an international law professor who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 believes the SARS-CoV-2 virus is a bioweapon that’s been genetically modified with “gain of function” properties and that it escaped from the Biosafety Level 4 laboratory (BSL-4) in Wuhan, China, which is why the Chinese government has been trying to cover it up.

He thinks it’s likely that the virus was stolen by Dr. Xiangguo Qiu from a Canadian BSL-4 in Winnepeg last July, from where she was expelled from her position as a government scientist. Dr. Xiangguo Qiu “made at least five trips to China in 2017-18, including one to train scientists and technicians at China’s newly certified Level 4 lab [in Wuhan, China], which does research with the most deadly pathogens,” according to travel documents obtained by CBC News.

The BSL-4 in Wuhan, China is a specially designated World Health Organization (WHO) research lab and Dr. Boyle contends that the WHO knows full well what has occurred.

New York is now in the thick of it and what’s alarming – and germane to my cousin’s message – is that the epidemiology of COVID-19 in the greater New York area diverges from the reports in Italy or even Washington State, with younger adults making up a big portion of recent coronavirus hospitalizations.

Last week, the New York Times reported that, “New CDC data shows that nearly 40% of patients sick enough to be hospitalized were age 20 to 54. But the risk of dying was significantly higher in older people.”

Could this be because New York City has 5G hotspots?

Where I live in Suffolk County, New York 50% of cases are people in their 40s and 50s. Of the 459 total cases in Suffolk County, Dr. Gregson Pigott, Commissioner, Suffolk County Department of Health Services says there are 50 cases among people in their 20s, 50 cases of those in their 30s, with 50% of all cases reported among those in their 40s and 50s. Similar to the epidemiology of Italy, there are slightly more males who have confirmed positive.

With this in mind, I’m sharing this animated video produced by Kurzgesagt, the Munich-based design house that makes artful yet strictly science-based videos. This one illustrates the mechanism of the disease being called COVID-19, that is caused by the “novel” severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2019.

Hollywood Celebrities Are Psyops Wrapped In Human Skin

ORIGINAL LINK

CNN trotted out Hollywood actor Sean Penn to give the nation expert advice on how to deal with a novel virus pandemic yesterday.

Did they do this because we live in a meaningless, godless universe where madness reigns and everything is chaos? Close, but no. They wanted Penn to explain to the public that it would be wonderful if the US military were deployed inside US borders to deal with the pandemic, because the US military is the greatest humanitarian force on planet Earth.

“There is no greater humanitarian force on the planet than the United States military,” Penn said. “The logistical skills, commitment to service, their care for the people. It’s really time to give the military the full breadth command and control of this operation. I wouldn’t blink, I would have put command and control in their hands a month ago, certainly today.”

The US military is in fact one of the least humanitarian forces on this planet, second only to malaria-laden mosquitos (and even that’s debatable). No other force is circling the globe murdering people in countless undeclared military entanglements and bullying the world into complying with the interests of a nationless alliance of plutocrats and opaque government agencies at the expense of ordinary humans everywhere. They are the exact opposite of a humanitarian force on this planet.

Medical staff are a force for humanitarianism on this planet right now. Grocery store clerks are a force for humanitarianism on this planet. The US military are the armed thugs of a metastatic globe-sprawling empire run by sociopaths.

Don’t say “Thank you for your service” to veterans whose only contribution to humanity has been helping to murder people for imperialist fossil fuel control agendas and Raytheon profit margins. Say “Thank you for your service” to your local cashier. To do the former is to participate in a cruel collective propaganda operation which only encourages more young people to hurl their bodies into the gears of the US war machine in search of the respect and honor you’re displaying, while to do the latter is to thank someone for actually providing a crucial service to human beings.

The malfunction in Penn’s mind is the result of many malignant factors, but among them is the fact that people who rise to fame and fortune naturally experience a gravitational pull toward elitist echo chambers which cultivate narratives that favor the status quo which gave rise to their fame and fortune. You have a hard time hanging out with normal people because most of them don’t treat you normally anymore, so you find yourself spending time with other rich and famous people, and with people who have a vested interest in the rich and famous.

This dynamic naturally fosters an environment where celebrities are eager to believe positive stories about the system which favors them, and where narrative managers are eager to circulate those stories among influential voices. This is why, with very few exceptions, the closest you’ll ever get to seeing a Hollywood celebrity express an anti-establishment opinion is one of them saying “Fuck Trump” at the Tony Awards. It’s also why every few weeks you’ll see some celebrity tweet something disgusting and then go into a meltdown when thousands of ordinary people react with revulsion; they don’t have ordinary people in their lives giving them feedback on what’s normal anymore, all they have is the elitist echo chamber.

This echo chamber is what led a group of self-quarantining celebrities to believe it would be an awesome idea to share a video compilation where they all badly sing lines from John Lennon’s “Imagine” from inside their mansions with a world full of people who’ve been laid off from their jobs and are terrified for their futures. The figuratively and literally tone-deaf video was universally panned and people have been mocking it on social media ever since its release, which probably would have come as a surprise to the celebrities themselves since nothing in their insulated day-to-day lives would have told them they could all be collectively rejected with such disgust.

The celebrity “Imagine” project was spearheaded by Israeli actress Gal Gadot, who as an IDF veteran would not have required any Hollywood echo chambering to have undergone deep psychological programming in favor of the empire. Gadot, who famously came under fire for publicly cheerleading the 2014 Gaza massacre, first shared the video on Instagram with the caption “We are in this together, we will get through it together. Let’s imagine together. Sing with us.”

Memesters have of course been having fun with this.

Then you’ve got celebrities like Rob Reiner, who just tweeted “No more fucking around. We’re standing on a precipice. Time to consider a Federal lockdown.”

Reiner is one of the more ham-fisted of the right-wing Democrats who we first saw promoting Russia hysteria, then working against the Sanders campaign, and are now promoting drastic totalitarian measures from their high-profile platforms. If you still hadn’t seen these people for what they are yet, you should definitely be seeing them now.

It is an absolute guarantee that powerful people will use this pandemic to advance authoritarian measures which they have no intention of rolling back once the pandemic is over. They are working to do this currently. This is not a possibility, this is an absolute certainty.

No more fucking around. We're standing on a precipice. Time to consider a Federal lockdown.

 — @robreiner

While it does appear necessary to collectively use self-quarantining and social distancing to avoid crashing our healthcare systems and needlessly killing millions of people, we need to make sure we slam on the brakes long before we yield any more ground to the authoritarians than they’ve already shored up over the years. And we need to loudly shout down any celebrities who try to tell us otherwise.

Hollywood is a giant propaganda mill which when it isn’t cranking out movies which are literally funded and controlled by the US war machine is putting on spectacular ninety-minute “The global world order is perfectly sane and capitalism is totally working” infomercial presentations. It is an arm of cultural control which is unrivaled by anything else in this world, so of course it has powerful forces at work within it ensuring status quo loyalism.

Whoever controls the narrative controls the world, and Hollywood celebrities are psyops wrapped in human skin. May our collective disgust with them continue to grow.

New web threat: Government plan to scan online messages

ORIGINAL LINK

A privacy organization warns a bill in Congress would violate privacy and security by requiring "every message sent" to be read by government-approved scanning software.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation said the EARN IT bill sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., would spell the end of encryption online.

The bill's authors avoided the word "encryption," EFF noted, but they proposed "legislation that enables an all-out assault on encryption."

"It would create a 19-person commission that's completely controlled by the attorney general and law enforcement agencies. And, at the hearing, a vice-president at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children made it clear what he wants the best practices to be," EFF said.

"NCMEC believes online services should be made to screen their messages for material that NCMEC considers abusive; use screening technology approved by NCMEC and law enforcement; report what they find in the messages to NCMEC; and be held legally responsible for the content of messages sent by others."

The objective appears to be "an Internet where the law required every message sent to be read by government-approved scanning software. Companies that handle such messages wouldn't be allowed to securely encrypt them, or they'd lose legal protections that allow them to operate."

The proposal would provide for a removal of some legal protections, under Section 230 of federal law, for sites that don't follow the "best practices."

That would mean the sites "can be sued into bankruptcy," the report said.

"You can't have an Internet where messages are screened en masse, and also have end-to-end encryption any more than you can create backdoors that can only be used by the good guys. The two are mutually exclusive. Concepts like 'client-side scanning' aren't a clever route around this; such scanning is just another way to break end-to-end encryption. Either the message remains private to everyone but its recipients, or it's available to others," EFF warned.

The organization, which advocates for privacy issues and individual control over online data, said the "commission" would be dominated by law enforcement and its allies.

"Not only will those groups have a majority of votes on the commission, but the bill gives Attorney General Barr the power to veto or approve the list of best practices. Even if other commission members do disagree with law enforcement, Barr’s veto power will put him in a position to strongarm them."

Once a scanning precedent is set, EFF said, "Authoritarian regimes around the world will rejoice, as they have the ability to add their own types of mandatory scanning, not just for child sexual abuse material but for self-expression that those governments want to suppress."

Witch Hunt: The Storm Is Upon Us

ORIGINAL LINK

I just got off the phone with my friend, who’s a retired Marines Special Forces Lieutenant who was just briefed for over an hour by a 3-Star General. What he was told sounds like reports I’ve been seeing on social media that I’ve discounted. I know the following sounds starry-eyed and trite, even. For his part, he told the General that he’d believe it when he saw it – but here goes:

The coronavirus was a Globalist ploy that failed and has been hijacked by the Trump Administration to be used as cover to keep people inside and to prevent collateral damage during a military op of mass arrests. Some targets are very violent and they will fight back. For your safety, it’s best to stay inside.

The operation is live. Arrests are happening in Southern California now. It’s being overseen by NAVSPEC. They will arrest 160,000 people in 90 days, including members of the mainstream media and Barry Soetoro.

They’re starting now by taking down Antifa, MS-13, the mafia, drug gangs and other mercenaries hired by Soros and used by the Dems/Deep State.

These mercenaries were going to conduct mass riots and mayhem after the election but this is being stopped. There will soon be Martial Law, maybe as soon as this Monday.

Thousands have been arrested in Italy already.

The situation is “fluid” but it’s more or less like this:

You may have noticed that during Trump’s daily coronavirus updates, that starting around the 14th or the 15th, the Presidential Seal was removed from the podium. That seal represents the US Corporation, of which Trump was elected the President and for which he was drafted as a corporate raider to take it over and to restore the Republic. Trump will not be President after January 2021. Or most probably not.

There will be a financial reset – the end of the dollar/petrodollar.

The the assets of criminal banksters, Rothschilds, The Committee, etc. who’ve been stealing from us for decades are being seized. We will be repaid. The IRS and the Fed will be abolished and after all of this shakes out, we will only pay consumption taxes of between 7%-15%.

Everyone will be financially better off when all is said and done.

We will be informed of a lot of things that have been kept secret; medical breakthroughs, suppressed information about alternative energy and the truth about extraterrestrial life.

Everyone will be given a credit card to buy a free energy device and we will never have to pay the electric company again.

I know this all sounds like the NESARA emails I used to get and that it’s even more fantastical than the “hopium” we’ve been hearing from QAnon and on the X22 Report and other YouTube channels but I swear, this what someone I’ve known for 5 years, a retired SpecOps Marine just told me.

Today’s video by Where We Go 1 We Go All is gives many details that indicate that this is, indeed The Storm.

Still more emails found from Hillary Clinton's secret system

ORIGINAL LINK

Hillary Clinton

Still more emails have been discovered from the unsecure, private email system Hillary Clinton used for government business as secretary of state for Barack Obama, according to government watchdog Judicial Watch.

The organization said Friday 80 pages of newly acquired documents include an email sent by Clinton just after the Benghazi terror attack and talking points for a meeting with Obama.

It was the second release from a batch of Clinton emails the FBI "inexplicably" found late in 2019, years after the requests for the records had been submitted, Judicial Watch said.

Judicial Watch, which has been fighting for access to the government records ever since it discovered Clinton's special email system while investigating the Benghazi terror attack on her watch that killed four Americans, said the State Department "previously claimed it had produced all releasable Clinton emails, including emails recovered by the FBI that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or withhold."

"The State Department initially claimed all responsive emails had been produced in 2018, but then found more emails, which were produced for the first time early this year," the organization said.

The new emails include an Oct. 13, 2012, message from Clinton informing private attorney Robert Barnett of a conversation with Jake Sullivan, Clinton's senior adviser and deputy chief of staff, about Benghazi.

"Jake and I were discussing the Benghazi security issue since he tried to tell [Redacted] would be asked about it but they didn’t think so. Might be good for you to call Jake too," Clinton wrote.

Also found was a "cheat sheet" from Sullivan to Clinton, Clinton aide Huma Abedin and Clinton's confidential assistant Monica Hanley that included "Talking Points for POTUS" for a briefing that day. The talking points are redacted.

A 2009 memo that Ambassador Joseph Wilson emailed to Clinton promoted his company, Symbion Power.

Another, from 2011, was from Clinton aide Lona Valmoro to Clinton, Abedin and Sullivan. It included a copy of Clinton’s sensitive daily schedule, which is fully redacted.

"Magically, after years, the FBI finds more Clinton emails that are classified, involve Benghazi, and detail communications with President Obama," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "This drip, drip game that the DOJ, FBI, and State are playing is a key reason a federal court authorized more discovery, including the sworn deposition of Hillary Clinton."

Top intelligence officials have said it's likely that foreign governments accessed the information on Clinton's server. She famously acknowledged she had her staff delete some 33,000 emails that were under subpoena, insisting they were about personal matters. Shortly before FBI Director James Comey announced that the FBI would not refer charges, her husband Bill Clinton met privately with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a private jet in Phoenix.

A federal judge recently ordered Clinton to give a deposition, under oath, to Judicial Watch, on related issues. Her lawyers now have argued to an appeals court that she's exempt.

Judicial Watch says it already has learned:

  • John Hackett, former director of information programs and services (IPS) testified under oath that he had raised concerns that Clinton’s staff may have “culled out 30,000” of the secretary’s “personal” emails without following strict National Archives standards. He also believed there was interference with the formal FOIA review process related to the classification of Clinton’s Benghazi-related emails.
  • Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s White House liaison at the State Department, and later Clinton’s personal lawyer, admitted under oath that she was granted immunity by the Department of Justice in June 2016.
  • Justin Cooper, former aide to President Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation employee who registered the domain name of the unsecure clintonemail.com server that Clinton used while serving as secretary of state, testified he worked with Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, to create the non-government email system.
  • In interrogatory responses, E.W. Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, stated that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President.
  • Jacob Sullivan, Clinton’s senior advisor and deputy chief of staff when she was secretary of state, testified that both he and Clinton used her unsecure non-government email system to conduct official State Department business.
  • Eric Boswell, former assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, testified that Clinton was warned twice against using unsecure BlackBerrys and personal emails to transmit classified material.
