The Curious Case of Seth Rich: Why DNC Staffer's Murder Continues to Stir Up Political Controversy

DNC staffer Seth Rich's unresolved murder case is still raising questions on both sides of the US political aisle. An American investigative journalist has shed light on the efforts to get to the bottom of the case and the FBI's potential role in investigating the 27-year-old's death.


Bill Barr Did Not See Fraud Because He Refused To Look


I was wrong in putting any faith in Bill Barr. I thought Bill Barr was an honorable man. He is not. He has done a good job of masquerading as a stand up, honest guy, but when it came to saving the Republic and upholding the Constitution, he ran away.

During Barr’s final press conference on Monday, he doubled down on his prior statement:

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

Barr insists he has not seen sufficient fraud? Is he blind? Is he now illiterate? A blind cave fish can see the evidence.


  • Presently, Biden lays claim to 306 electors, while Trump lags with 232.
  • Georgia, Pennsylvania and Arizona account for 47 electoral votes. If those votes are properly assigned to Donald Trump and taken away from Joe Biden, Trump wins 279 to Biden’s 259.
  • The total of 103,896 votes separate Trump and Biden in these three states.

There is indisputable, tangible evidence of a massive fraud that, once exposed, ensures Donald Trump’s re-election. The plot was simple.

  • Millions of illegal ballots were pre-printed and shipped directly to counting centers in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Arizona (also happened in Wisconsin, Michigan and Nevada).
  • These ballots were presented as “mail in ballots” but were never actually mailed and never handled by living voter.
  • These fraudulent ballots were fed into the Dominion voting machines and recorded votes for Joe Biden. Most of the pre-printed ballots excluded down ballot candidates, which is why the Republicans won more than 12 additional seats in the U.S. Congress.

Proving the fraud is even simpler. We only need to compare the physical ballots with the images that are recorded on the Dominion machines. We do not need to worry, at this point, about computer forensics. (That could be relevant later when we go after those foreign entities responsible for the interference). We only need to focus on the ballot images. For example, if a mailed in ballot had actually been mailed, it would have been folded and unfolded several times. Those fold marks show up on the digital image that the Dominion machine made in recording the ballot.

If you have a mailed in ballot that has no fold marks then you have clear, empirical evidence of fraud. A mail in ballot will have fold marks. But there also are other markings embedded in the ballots that will reveal whether or not a person or a machine filled out the ballot.

If you want to understand this type of analysis, please watch this video featuring Jovan Hutton Pulitzer. (Kudos to Joe Hoft who spotted the importance of Mr. Pulitzer early on.) Mr. Pulitzer is a true genius. He knows how to make the complex quite simple:


I never realized, until now, that Bill Barr is incapable of counting. The evidence of fraud in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin and Michigan is substantial and consequential. This proves that Bill Barr is flat out wrong about the evidence and the outcome of the election.


Biden supposedly won by 11,779 votes over Trump, but the documentary and video evidence show that thousands of votes were illegally counted in Fulton County, Georgia. Fulton County Georgia elections officials told the media and GOP observers that they were shutting down the tabulation center at State Farm Arena at 10:30 p.m. on election night because of an alleged water main rupture. But there was no break in the water line.

The Democrat workers continued counting ballots in secret until 1:00 a.m. Ruby Freeman and her daughter–elections supervisor Wandrea “Shaye” Moss–are clearly visible on video pulling out suitcases full of ballots and began counting those ballots without election monitors in the room. 

16 Electoral votes.



Ruby and her daughter pulled out more than 11,779 ballots and can be seen entering those ballots multiple times into the Dominion machine. And Bill Barr does not see this as relevant?



The evidence does not stop there. Pennsylvania’s votes, specifically those from the Philadelphia area, were corrupt. The ballots counted in Philadelphia were printed in New York and transported to Pennsylvania. We are talking more than 350,000 ballots. The evidence about the movement of these ballots is fully backed up by eye witness testimony under oath and documents.

Here is one witness, truck driver Jesse Morgan:

20 Electoral votes.



Bill Barr clearly is no good at simple math. 350,000 ballots is more than enough to swing the election in Pennsylvania from Biden to Trump. All the FBI has to do is investigate.


Wisconsin’s fraud starts with the introduction of 170,000 mail-in ballots entering the tabulation process under the guise of absentee ballots in clear violation of state law. That’s more than eight times the number of ballots of the alleged Biden victory margin of 20,608 votes. This large-scale abuse was facilitated by expansive definition of “indefinitely confined voters,” which the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled was illegal.

But there also is clear evidence that fraudulent “mailed” ballots were put through the Dominion machines. For example, more than 2000 absentee votes in Wisconsin all had the same initials “MLW”. Then there were thousands of pristine “mailed” ballots with no sign of ever being folded.

10 Electoral votes



The fraud in Wisconsin is centered in Dane and Milwaukee counties. But so far the FBI has declined to investigate. How can Bill Barr claim there is no evidence when there are clear allegations but no investigation. The difference of 20,608 swings the state to Trump.


The evidence of voter fraud from the ballots allegedly mailed is clear and stunning, as the following video explains.

11 Electoral votes



In light of the emerging evidence, it appears the Republican legislature is going to certify the Republican slate of electors. With only 10,457 separating Biden and Trump and with the evidence that more than 100,000 mail in votes do not show evidence of actually being mailed, this should give President Trump another key win.

It is a shame that Bill Barr concludes his government service under such a dark cloud.  But it is his fault. All he had to do was be honest and look at the evidence. Instead, he studiously avoided looking. He chose blindness over vision. That tawdry legacy is on him.

Wheels Come Off For Bus Companies, Closing Down Travel Options For Poor Americans

Wheels Come Off For Bus Companies, Closing Down Travel Options For Poor Americans

The wheels on the nation's buses aren't going round and round very much these days according to MPRnews, which notes that demand for bus travel has fallen by more than 80 percent during the pandemic, as public health authorities urge people to avoid travel where possible. That is raising concerns about the potential long-term damage to an essential transport method for millions of lower-income Americans even as air travel has shown signs of picking up since the Thanksgiving holiday period.

And those who have to take the bus, for whatever reason, are finding fewer options, and often higher prices as a result.

Feeling the pinch most are people like Andrew Sarkis. He paid $97 for a one-way bus ticket from Hampton, Va., to New York City, a 12-hour journey that required two transfers.

"It's expensive, man," said Sarkis, while stretching his legs after his bus took a brief stop at Union Station in Washington, D.C. "I used to go on another bus for $45 a trip, that goes straight to New York," he added.

A Greyhound bus driver wears a protective mask and gloves as he prepares to depart a station in San Antonio, Texas.

Sarkis was on his way to visit family for Christmas, but was forced into taking a half-day travel on a Greyhound bus after finding his usual options in competing services pared down: "The service is not bad," he said. "It's just long hours of traveling."

Greyhound said it's operating less than half its normal bus routes during the pandemic, while revenues have fallen nearly 60%.

"Greyhound has been immensely impacted by the effects of COVID-19," the company said in a statement. "From temporary and permanent closures of routes to sudden workforce reductions, our ability to provide critical service to communities—especially those that are underserved and/or rural—has been reduced."

Industrywide, the service cuts are even deeper: "We see the industry operating at about 10 percent capacity," said Peter Pantuso, president of the American Bus Association.

And it's hard to estimate how soon demand can pick up. Not many people are interested in riding the bus these days, spending hours with strangers in an enclosed space. Unlike airlines, which saw an uptick in travel over Thanksgiving, demand for bus tickets remains severely depressed, according to Wanderu, a travel website.

That raises concerns about the long-term health of a sector that generally operates on thinner margins and has less financial cushion.

Pantuso estimates that 85% of the 100,000 people who work in the bus industry have been laid off or furloughed — in most cases since March.

It's not just long-haul services like Greyhound that are limping. Traffic on commuter lines that ordinarily ferry workers to and from the suburbs has also dried up, since many people are working from home. Charter buses and specialty services are struggling as well.

The Nitetrain Coach in Nashville offers tricked-out buses with bars and bunk beds for touring musicians. Since March, the company's 120-bus fleet has gone silent. "It's been a hard time with concerts not happening," said Nitetrain's Angela Eicher. "No job. No income."

The company has idled more than 200 drivers as well as mechanics and office staff: "We're at the mercy of the venues," Eicher said. "When the venues allow the concerts to start happening, that's when our buses will start rolling again."

Nitetrain did send a few of its buses to the Gulf Coast this fall, to house utility crews cleaning up after hurricanes. Elsewhere, buses have been used to evacuate people from the path of wildfires.

With less competition among bus companies, the few people who are buying tickets are often paying more. The Labor Department reported an 18 percent jump in intercity bus fares last month, even as overall inflation was tame.

And while bus travel is still cheaper than other options, the extra cost can be a hardship for many riders.

"This is a mode of travel that caters to people often who can't afford cars — that need to go at the least possible cost from point A to point B," said Joe Schwieterman, a transportation expert who directs the Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development at DePaul University. "If prices jump, it might be out of reach."

But while Congress has offered billions of dollars in financial aid to airlines and Amtrak, bus companies have been overlooked. Pantuso, the bus trade group president, said the lack of attention from Congress was a concern, calling his sector a critical piece of the nation's transportation network.

"If more members of Congress took the bus on a more regular basis," he said, "We'd probably be at the top of the list for funding."

Of course, the whole point of being in Congress is to never take a bus again...

Inventory Soars As Companies Dump Record Volume Of Office Space

Inventory Soars As Companies Dump Record Volume Of Office Space

There is absolutely no way to avoid a great deal of pain coming to the commercial real estate market in 2021 as companies dump record volumes of office space onto the sublease market, according to FT

Commercial real estate analysts warn that the amount of sublease inventory in top US markets is at or now exceeding levels of the Dot Com bust and the Great Financial Crisis. 

Bank of America and SalesForce are the latest companies extending remote working options for employees. These analysts now believe the office space market may not recover even though the broader economy rebounds. 

Daniel Ismail, the office analyst at Green Street Advisors, a real estate research firm, said the country "just underwent what will end up being close to a year-long work-from-home experiment, and the results continue to show for themselves."

"You have a company every other week saying how successful work-from-home has been for them, and their plans to reduce or shrink their total office space needs," Ismail said. 

He believes that demand for office spaces could be down 10 to 15% even after the economy recovers, adding that rents in top markets such as New York and San Francisco will continue to experience declines in 2021. 

Ismail said work workplace changes (remote working), which were supposed to take 4 to 5 years to unfold, are happening in a matter of quarters. 

"We're turning on a dime," he said. 

FT cites other real estate analysts that say sublease inventory has surged across major US markets this year. 

In the largest office space market, New York City, Cushman & Wakefield estimated subleasing space was at an all-time high of 18 million square feet as of November, up from 10.5 million square feet compared to November 2019.

Taking a look at Manhattan sublease space, inventory in the third quarter was 16.1 million square feet, up 46.8% since the start of the year, and near the record high of 16.3 million square feet observed in 2009. 

New York City commercial real estate is on shaky ground as Mayor Bill de Blasio has actively transformed Manhattan into a (crime infested) ghost down as companies and residents flee the metro area. 

According to Savills, the Bay Area of San Francisco recorded a 148% jump in sublease inventory through September. Lately, Pinterest canceled a 490,000 square feet lease in the city. Twitter also pulled the plug on 105,000 square feet of space. 

This year, the whole remote work from home phenomenon threatens the $3.4 trillion-dollar commercial real estate debt via bonds, direct loans, and securitized loan bundles. 

"I don't see any way of avoiding a great deal of pain in the commercial real estate market in 2021. It is almost inevitable. My friends at the Federal Reserve and FDIC are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with what's going on in the commercial real estate world, said Cam Fine, Former President of Independent Community Bankers of America

Michael Silver, chairman of Vestian, which advises companies on commercial real estate, said developers in March "were pounding their chest and saying, the virus-induced downturn was an aberration" and everything was going to snap back. However, he said that's not the case.

Silver makes the shocking forecast that companies will only need half of their pre-pandemic office space, pushing sublease space from around 200 million square feet to more than 300 million square feet. 

"The end result of this is a reset," he warned. 

... and what happens to co-working companies like WeWork, who, in some metro areas, such as New York City, have recently become the largest commercial tenants?

But none of this should be surprising to readers as we noted months back that CEOs are slashing office space as remote working dominates. 

The big take away: A crisis in commercial real estate lurks.

Show Respect?


Guest Post by Eric Peters

An even better way than ordering you to do something is to make you feel bad about not doing something. Then it isn’t necessary to order you to do it.

Communists excel at this. They make it a moral crime to assert your individuality. They shame you for not being – as the current saying has it – all in this together.

They being the ones who decide what “this” is.

Your duty being to obey what they say. Not because it’s the law – but because if you don’t you are a bad person.

One can see this almost everywhere. Injunctions not merely to “wear a mask” but to “show respect” and that “you care.” The obvious implication being that if you do not wear the Holy Rag then you don’t care – and aren’t being respectful.

Which is, of course, true – and ought to be loudly proclaimed.

Why should anyone care what some other person believes if what the person believes is absurd? Put more finely, one may have an obligation to respect the other person’s right to go about their business however they wish, to the extent they don’t impose their absurd beliefs upon others.

Michael Jackson wasn’t turned away from stores, told he couldn’t work unless he took off his “mask.” Most employers won’t fire an otherwise competent worker simply because he washes his hands a dozen times a day.

People’s quirks shouldn’t be actionable in a free country.

Do as you like  . . . so long as you leave me be.

Michael Jackson was less a freak than many of the people one sees walking around today in that he didn’t scream at people who weren’t wearing a “mask” or who got closer than six feet to his presence. Even he understood that aberrance doesn’t impose obligations on the non-aberrant.

Of course, Michael Jackson wasn’t a communist.

The “mask” pushers are precisely that, even if many of those who wear the “mask” don’t understand this. They are latter-day Useful Idiots – the term used by Lenin to describe people duped into believing something in order to get them to do something.

Lenin got people to believe in “land and peace” – the early slogans of a political movement determined to seize all land and give no one peace. The Useful Idiots fell for it. Lenin – perhaps the most brilliant practical politician of all time – would tell people anything in order to get them to believe.

So as to get them to obey.

And then, it was too late to object.

Today’s Useful Idiots believe that wearing a piece of gauze or something even more porous – like a bandana – can shield them against viral particles so tiny as to be almost not physical things. One has to be an idiot to believe such a thing. But there are many who believe they are doing the right thing, even if it is doing nothing – other than serving as the symbol of their Useful Idiotness.

The dangerous thing is they’ve been programmed to regard unbelief as a kind of moral affront; that those who aren’t Useful Idiots don’t “care” and lack “respect” for the “community.” Exactly – almost verbatim – the way Communists (and it is specifically the Communists) use language to invert morality, pervert the natural inclination to do the right thing which most humans have and to lay the groundwork for the brutal suppression of anyone who opposes their rule by characterizing them as . . . bad people.

The Soviet dissident and writer Alexandr Solzhenitsyn explained this in his best-known work, The Gulag Archipelago. In it – among many things – he describes how he almost hired on with the NKVD, the Soviet Union’s political police:

“And just so we don’t go around flaunting too proudly the white mantle of the just, let everyone ask himself: ‘If my life had turned out differently, might I myself not have become just such an executioner?’ It is a dreadful question if one answers it honestly.”

As an NKVD commissar, Solzhenitsyn would have been empowered to round up people and have them sent to their deaths; to actually kill them himself, if he wished (the NKVD was endowed summary execution powers) and he would have done it not because he was an evil person in his own mind but because his mind told him he was doing the right thing.

But his conscience told him something was wrong.

His decision to shy away from the blue-capped uniform of the NKVD was “… not founded on rational argument. . . . It certainly didn’t derive from the lectures on historical materialism we listened to: It was clear from them that the struggle against the internal enemy was a crucial battle front, and to share in it was an honorable task. . . . It was not our minds that resisted but something inside our breasts. People can shout at you from all sides: ‘You must!’ But inside your breast there is a sense of revulsion, repudiation. I don’t want to. It makes me feel sick. Do what you want with me. I want no part of it.”

Italics in the original.

Something very sick is afoot and – as in Soviet Russia – its etiology probably has something to do with the same etiology that led to the success of the religion of Communism in what became Soviet Russia: Loss of faith, despair and fomented terror.

Save us. Give us purpose. Something to believe in.

And damn the heretics, who are to blame for our misery.

Solzhenitsyn spent years in the Gulag, where he was tortured for his unbelief. The Soviet Union tortured an entire people for 70 years. The world now stands on the knife edge of succumbing to the same fate, for the sake of a new religion that may destroy everything in the name of doing good.

Unless enough of us care enough to put a stop to it.

PS: I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Italicized to emphasize the point. Don’t let these gaslighting sourpusses tell you to keep apart from family and friends, to shun them as diseased. It is they – the sourpusses – who are diseased and it is high time to stop giving a damn about anything they have to say.

What To Do When The Planets Diverge

What To Do When The Planets Diverge

Authored by MN Gordon via,

Planets Jupiter and Saturn came into closer alignment than any time since 1226 this week.  Yet the planets in Washington did not align.  The federal government was unable to ‘Christmas tree’ its stimulus bill.

At the 11th hour, President Trump called bull pucky on the contents of Congresses hideous creation.  Too much pork.  Not enough relief.

Congress will return next week and attempt to salvage a deal.  Likewise, we’ll save fiscal stimulus and its consequential economic distortions for reckoning with another day.

It’s Christmas, after all.  We’d prefer to delve into the esoteric.  Thus, today, for fun and for free, we seek meaning through numerology and astrology.  Where to begin…

Not long ago, if you recall, a Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) above 30,000 was impossible.  Nothing could touch it.  But here it is, in the flesh, a DJIA that’s a peppermint stick above this “sacred” number.

A DJIA above 30,000 is, indeed, quite impressive.  But equally impressive is a distinct, yet somehow related milestone that’s rapidly approaching.  The U.S. National Debt is over $27.5 trillion.  At the current spending rate, the national debt will surpass a round and rotund $30 trillion within nine months.

The reality, however, is that the national debt exceeded $30 trillion a long time ago.  In fact, it’s really 568 percent higher.  Remember, current unfunded liabilities, including Social Security and Medicare, now total over $156.2 trillion.

Added together, the national debt and current unfunded liabilities total $183.7 trillion.  Truly, this number is so large it’s near impossible to comprehend.  Thus, for simplicity and for the sake of numerological harmony, today’s ruminations are limited in breadth and scope to DJIA 30,000 and U.S. National Debt $30 trillion.

Arbitrary Data Points

Quite frankly, we don’t really know what the DJIA and the national debt have to do with each other.  We can’t quite put a finger on it.  But we have a hunch both milestones are in some way emblematic of a great transformation that has taken place.

Is DOW 30,000 and U.S. National Debt $30 trillion merely a coincidence?  Or is there a correlation?  And if there is a correlation, does it imply causation?

There are a variety of ways, no doubt, to explore these questions.  Here we opt for the path of least resistance.  Hence, what follows is not a detailed desktop evaluation of the numbers; but, rather, one very simply deduced conclusion based on inference, guess work, and conjecture.

To begin, we peer back to the past in search of arbitrary data points that look as if they’re interrelated.  For example, in the autumn of 1982 the DOW surpassed 1,000.  This wasn’t the first time this happened.  But 1982 is the last time the DOW rose above 1,000 without then dipping back below.  Similarly, 1982 is when the U.S. National Debt first topped the $1 trillion mark.

From $1 trillion to $30 trillion, the U.S. National Debt generally followed an exponential growth curve.  There was a slight pause in the late 1990s.  But otherwise it has progressively concaved upward approaching a parabolic trajectory; particularly since 2009.

The DOW’s march from 1,000 toward 30,000, on the other hand, has been less direct.  There have even been several brief, yet significant, selloffs along the way.  What to make of it?

A statistician may run the numbers for the DOW and the U.S. National Debt and conclude that there’s a weak correlation, and certainly no causation.  They may even graph a scatter plot to make their case.

A numerologist, however, may look at the divinely round numbers and infer something much different.  Maybe even that there’s a connection that can be projected into the future.  Who’s right?  Who’s wrong?

What To Do When The Planets Diverge

Along the road from DOW 1,000 to DOW 30,000 and from U.S. National Debt $1 trillion to U.S. National Debt $30 trillion one thing is quite clear.  There have been episodes of alignment and episodes of significant divergence.

For instance, in March of 2009 the DOW touched down at about 6,700 while the U.S. National Debt was over $10 trillion.  Perhaps we’re approaching another such divergence.

Namely, using a subjective combination of supposition, numerology, astrology, and crude statistics, it seems likely that we are entering a time where the U.S. National Debt continues its exponential trajectory while the DOW dives 15,000 points – or more – to below 15,000.

You can take this shrewd little nugget of insight for what it’s worth and set it aside for another day.  Remember, today’s Christmas.  Now’s the time for joy, good cheer, and merriment.  Not gloom, boom, and doom.

Thus, like the stock market over the last decade, now’s the time to seize the day and make something of it.  For the planets may not be so amicably aligned come this time next year.

So wreck the halls, if you’re so inclined.  Have another eggnog or peppermint bark.  Give the bell ringing Salvation Army lady a wink and a crisp Andrew Jackson or Benjamin Franklin…before the Fed outlaws cash.

Of course, whatever you do, always do it in a ‘safe and sane’ manner.  In short, sell the DOW – and sell bonds too.

On that cheery note, we’ll conclude our ruminations.

Merry Christmas!

Biden expected to reverse Trump crackdown on public employees' 'release time'


Many government employees across the nation are getting paid on the taxpayers job not to do the job they were hired to do, notes a report by the Goldwater Institute.

Instead, they are working full-time for private labor unions, collecting full salaries and benefits from taxpayers and accruing seniority while not providing any public service.

In one of his less-publicized efforts to help Americans, President Trump issued an order in May 2018 curbing release time, but Joe Biden is expected to repeal the order soon after taking office in January.

Trump said in his order: "No agency should pay for federal labor organizations’ expenses, except where required by law. Agencies should eliminate unrestricted grants of taxpayer-funded union time and instead require employees to obtain specific authorization before using such time. Agencies should also monitor use of taxpayer-funded union time, ensure it is used only for authorized purposes, and make information regarding its use readily available to the public."

Goldwater said it seems hard to believe that government employees "are getting paid not to do the job they were hired to do, but to work full-time for private labor unions, all on taxpayers' dime."

"But not only is it happening — it's incredibly common in cities and school districts across the country," said the institute, which has compiled a series of reports on the issue.

"Under release time, which occurs on the local, state, and federal level, government employees are 'released' from the jobs they were hired to do and instead work full-time for labor unions, while still receiving their full salary and benefits paid for by taxpayers. That means that a teacher on release time does not spend their time educating students, and a firefighter on release time doesn’t spend their time fighting fires. Instead, they spend their time negotiating higher wages, participating in lobbying and political activities, recruiting new union members, attending union conferences and seminars, and other activities that advance the union’s interest instead of the public interest," the report said.

Goldwater investigative reporter Mark Flatten surveyed 150 jurisdictions across America – three in every state – and found more than 400,000 hours of paid release time annually can be documented.

It also found that of the 150 agencies it contacted, only 82 could produce data on the number of hours they allowed in release time.

Among the worst cases is the city of Phoenix, which allowed 67,511 hours of paid union release time at a cost of about $3.7 million last fiscal year, the report said.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools in Florida, which according to contracts allows more than 22,000 hours a year, were among the jurisdictions that failed to provide information.

"The federal government allows about 3.6 million hours of release time (known as 'official time' on the federal level) every year. That adds up to a $177 million bill for taxpayers," the report said.

The institute says the fight "must happen on two fronts – through litigation and legislation."

Goldwater is "currently standing up for taxpayers through lawsuits challenging release time in Arizona, Texas, and New Jersey."

The institute said lawmakers need to be urged to "pursue policy reforms that prohibit public expenditures on activities that advance private, special interests, including those of private labor unions," the institute said.

Japan Issues Complete Ban On Non-Nationals Entry To Battle 'Super COVID' Strain

Japan Issues Complete Ban On Non-Nationals Entry To Battle 'Super COVID' Strain

As anxiety over new, reportedly more contagious, strains of COVID builds around the world - and with it the spread of travel blockades for British travelers - Japan just went to '11' on the "better safe than sorry" scale by banning all new entries by non-Japanese nationals through the end of January.

The ban will be in effect from Monday.

On Saturday, Nikkei report that, according to the government, Japan’s capital reported a record 949 new cases, with reports saying two more people, in addition to five confirmed on Friday, were found to be infected with the new strain.

Since October, Japan has allowed entry by those staying for at least three months on the condition that they quarantine for 14 days.

Japanese nationals and foreigners living in Japan will be permitted to return to the country, but now the issuance of all such long-term visas will be suspended.

Of course, the question everyone is asking is (or would be if President Trump had issued such an order), is it racist? We look forward to President Biden's decision.

'New Normal' Arrives - Singapore Airlines Launches COVID-19 "Digital Health Passport" For Passengers 

'New Normal' Arrives - Singapore Airlines Launches COVID-19 "Digital Health Passport" For Passengers 

As the world stumbles into 2021 in a matter of days, life, as we know it, will never be normal again, referring to good ole' days of the pre-pandemic. 

For months, readers may have heard us discuss "COVID passports," "immunity passports," or at least speak on the subject of those who don't get tested for COVID-19 or vaccinated will face travel restrictions. 

Well, from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact, Singapore Airlines this week is the first major carrier to introduce a digital health certificate to verify passengers' testing history and vaccination status. 

On Dec. 23, the new digital health verification process was rolled out for passengers traveling on flights operated by the carrier from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, according to a Singapore Airlines press release

The airline explains passengers will take COVID-19 tests at local clinics in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur and be issued "digital or paper health certificates with a QR code." These forms of immunity passes will be checked by airport security and Singapore's immigration authority. 

"This is a faster and more secure way to validate a passenger's health credentials than the existing protocols, speeding up both the airport check-in process and the immigration entry process into Singapore. It would make it easier for SIA customers to control their information, reduce friction during their travel journey, and result in a more seamless experience with the aid of digital technologies in the new normal," the airline said. 

JoAnn Tan, Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines, said the rollout of immunity passports "will be an integral part of air travel for the foreseeable future." 

In October, passengers flying from London's Heathrow Airport to Newark on a United Airlines flight were part of a pilot program to test passengers for the virus. 

Just weeks ago, Lance Gokongwei, President and CEO of Cebu Pacific, the Philippines' largest budget airline, announced health passports would be "essential" for travel. 

In the April and May timeframe,  the mayor of the French city of Nice and Bill Gates were among the most prominent voices discussing health passports. 

Even after the virus pandemic ends, these health passports will be sticking around could offer evidence that a traveler has been vaccinated - not just for COVID-19, but any other disease. 

This is just another example of elites tightening their control and surveillance on the masses.

France Forced To Postpone "Health Dictatorship" Vaccine Legislation

France Forced To Postpone "Health Dictatorship" Vaccine Legislation

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

A radical bill proposed by the French Government that would see unvaccinated people refused basic services such as public transport has been put on ice after a massive backlash.

The proposed law mandates that citizens have proof of a negative COVID test or “preventative treatment, including the administration of a vaccine” in order to “access transport or to some locations, as well as certain activities.”

However, the government has been forced to delay the legislation after angry protests.

French Health Minister Olivier Véran publicly postponed the bill in an announcement Tuesday evening.

“Because there needs to be trust for the French people to go and get vaccinated of their own free will, because we’re still in a state of sanitary crisis … the government won’t present the text [to the National Assembly] for several months, before we’re out of the crisis,” Véran stated.

The bill was lambasted by political figures across the spectrum, with conservative MP Fabien Di Filippo labelling it “vaccine blackmail.”

RN leader Marine Le Pen branded the vaccine measure “essentially totalitarian.”

“In a backhanded way, this bill does not aim to make vaccinations mandatory, but will prevent anybody who doesn’t comply from having a social life,” she said.

RN party spokesman Sebastien Chenu called the plan a “health dictatorship,” while centrist senator Nathalie Goulet said the draft was “an attack on public freedoms.”

Guillaume Peltier, deputy leader of the center-right LR party, warned that the law would allow the government to “get all the power to suspend our freedoms without parliamentary control.”

France’s vaccination program, set to get underway on Sunday, will not be mandatory, but a majority of 55% of citizens say they will not get the shot.

As we previously highlighted, France has imposed some of the strictest lockdown measures in Europe, with citizens having to fill out a form every time they leave their home.

H.G. Wells' Dystopic Vision Comes Alive With The Great Reset Agenda

H.G. Wells' Dystopic Vision Comes Alive With The Great Reset Agenda

Authored by Matthew Ehret via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

In the Time Machine, society one million years in the future has evolved into two separate species called Morlocks and Eloi. The Morlocks represent the ugly dirty producers who by this future age, all live under ground and run the world’s manufacturing. The Eloi are the effect of the inbreeding of the elite, who by this time are simple-minded, Aryan, above-ground dwellers living in idleness and consuming only what the Morlocks produce. What was the trade off?

The Morlocks periodically rise above ground in hunting parties to kidnap and eat unsuspecting Eloi in this symbiotically vicious circle of life.

This famous story was written by a young British writer in 1893 whose ideas and pioneering work in shaping new techniques of cultural warfare which profoundly affected the next 130 years of human history. These ideas led to the innovation of novel techniques of “predictive programming”, and to mass psychological warfare. In contrast to the optimistic views of mankind and the future potential envisioned by the great science fiction writer Jules Verne earlier, Wells’ misanthropic tales had the intended effect of reducing the creative potential and love of humanity that Verne’s work awoke.

To restate the technique more clearly: By shaping society’s imagination of the future, and embedding existential/nihilistic outcomes within his plotlines, Wells realized that the entire zeitgeist of humanity could be affected on a profound level than simple conscious reason would permit. Since he robed his poison in the cloth of “fiction” the minds of those receiving his stories would find their critical thinking faculties disengaged and would simply take in all trojan horses embedded in the stories into their unconsciousness. This has been an insight used for over a century by social engineers and intelligence agencies whose aim has always been the willing enslavement of all people of the earth.

While he is best known for such fiction works as The War of the Worlds, The World Set Free, The Invisible Man, The Island of Doctor Morrow, and The Time Machine, Wells’ lesser-known non-fiction writings like The Open Conspiracy, The New World Order, The Outline of History, The Science of Life and The World Brain served as guiding strategic blueprints for the entire 20th century war against sovereign nation states and the very idea of a society built on the premise of mankind made in the image of God.

Thomas Huxley’s Revolution

The members of the London-centered oligarchy to which Wells had devoted himself at an early age had found themselves stuck in a rut by the turn of the 19th century. These inbred families and retainers who managed the dying British Empire had long been encrusted by the vices of decadence by the time a young man of low breeding and high talent arose amidst the London-ghettos treating syphilis patients as a surgeon’s assistant. This young surgeon’s name was Thomas Huxley.

Huxley possessed a sardonic wit, a deep misanthropy, and an intelligence that were soon discovered by powerful patrons, and by his mid-20’s, this young man found himself a rising star in Britain’s Royal Academy of Science. Here he quickly became a leading creative force, shaping Britain’s powerful X Club, serving as Darwin’s bulldog promoting popular debates featuring himself against literalist members of the clergy. In these debates he argued for Darwin’s chaos-bound interpretation of evolution. He also founded Nature magazine as a propaganda instrument which has been used to enforce scientific consensus favorable to a world empire to this very day.

Huxley chose his opponents carefully, ensuring that he could easily and publicly obliterate the arguments of simple-minded Anglican clergy, and thus convince all onlookers that the only choice they had to account for the evolution of new species was either literal Biblical creationism or his brand of Darwinian evolution. The many alternative scientific theories of the 19th century (such as those found in the works of Karl Ernst von Baer, Georges Cuvier, Lamarck and James D. Dana) which accounted for both the evolution of species, and the harmonics of all parts to a whole, as well as creative leaps were forgotten amidst this false dichotomy which this author unpacked in a recent interview.

Wells Picks up Huxley’s Torch

During his later years, Huxley mentored a young H.G. Wells, together with a whole generation of new imperial practitioners of the arts of social engineering (and social Darwinism). This social engineering soon took the form of Galton’s eugenics quickly becoming an accepted science practiced across the western world.

Wells was himself the son of a lowly gardener, but, like Huxley, exhibited a strong misanthropic wit, passion and creativity lacking in the high nobility, and he was thus raised from the lower ranks of society into the order of oligarchical management by the 1890s. During this moment of vast potential- and – it cannot be restated enough- the oligarchical order that had grown overconfident during the 200+ years of hegemony were petrified to see the nations of the earth rapidly breaking free from this hegemony thanks to the under the international spread of Lincoln’s American System across Germany, Russia, Japan, South America, France, Canada and even China with Sun Yat-sen’s 1911 republican revolution.

As outlined in Cynthia Chung’s ‘Why Russia Saved the USA’, the oligarchy just no longer seemed to have the creative vitality and sophistication required to snuff out these revolutionary flames.

Wells described this problem in the following terms:

“The undeniable contraction of the British outlook in the opening decade of the new century is one that has exercised my mind very greatly… Gradually, the belief in the possible world leadership of England had been deflated by the economic development of America and the militant boldness of Germany. The long reign of Queen Victoria, so prosperous, progressive and effortless, had produced habits of political indolence and cheap assurance. As a people we had got out of training, and when the challenge of these new rivals became open, it took our breath away at once. We did not know how to meet it…”

The science of population control advanced by Huxley, Galton, Wells, Mackinder, Milner and Bertrand Russell was the basis for a new scientific priesthood and “world government” that would put a stop to the startling disequilibrium unleashed by the electric spread of sovereign nation states, protectionism and commitment to scientific and technological progress.

Fabians, Round Tablers and Coefficients: New Think Tanks Emerge

H.G Wells, Russell and other early social engineers of this new priesthood organized themselves in several interconnected think tanks known as 1) the Fabian Society of Sidney and Beatrice Webb which operated through the London School of Economics, 2) the Round Table Movement begun by the fortunes left to posterity by the racist diamond magnate Cecil Rhodes which also gave rise to the Rhodes Trust, and Rhodes Scholarship programs established to indoctrinate young talent in the halls of Oxford, and finally 3) the Co-Efficients Club of London. As noted by Georgetown Professor Carol Quigley, in his 1981 The Anglo-American Establishment, membership in all three organizations was virtually interchangeable.

Wells described the rise of these original think tanks and documented the inner elite’s inability to meet the challenge of the times saying:

“Our ruling class, protected in its advantages by a universal snobbery was broad-minded, easy going and profoundly lazy… Our liberalism was no longer a larger enterprise, it had become a generous indolence. But minds were waking up to this. Over our table at St Ermin’s Hotel wrangle Maxse, Bellairs, Hewins, Amery and Mackinder, all stung by the small but humiliating tale of disasters in the South African war, all sensitive to the threat of business recession, and all profoundly alarmed by the naval and military aggressiveness of Germany.”

Fearful of the prospect of a US-Russia-China alliance outlined in depth by Fabian/Roundtable members Halford Mackinder and Lord Alfred Milner, the solution was simple: kick over the chess board and get everyone to just slaughter each other. Accounts of the British imperial efforts to orchestrate this war have been told in many locations, but none as efficiently as the 2008 documentary 1932: Speak Not of Parties.

In the wake of the destruction which left 9 million dead on all sides and ruined countless lives, Wells, Russell and the Milner Roundtable became leading voices for world government under the League of Nations (c. 1919) advocating “enlightened cosmopolitanism” to replace the era of “selfish nation states”.

The Battle For World Government

A decade after its founding, the League was less successful than Wells and his co-thinkers would have liked, with nationalists from around the world recognizing the evil hand of empire lurking behind the apparent language of “liberal values and world peace”. Sun Yat-sen, among many others was among the anti-Wellsian voices and warned his fellow Chinese in 1924 not to fall into this trap saying:

“The nations which are employing imperialism to conquer others and which are trying to maintain their own favored positions as sovereign lords of the whole world are advocating cosmopolitanism [aka: global governance/globalization -ed] and want the world to join them… Nationalism is that precious possession by which humanity maintains its existence. If nationalism decays, then when cosmopolitanism flourishes we will be unable to survive and will be eliminated”.

In response to this patriotic resistance across the world, a new strategy had to be concocted. This took the form of H.G. Welles’ 1928 The Open Conspiracy: Blueprint for a World Revolution. This little-known book served as a guiding blueprint for the next century of imperial grand strategy calling for a new world religion and social order. According to Wells:

“The old faiths have become unconvincing, unsubstantial and insincere, and though there are clear intimations of a new faith in the world, it still awaits embodiment in formulae and organizations that will bring it into effective reaction upon human affairs as a whole.”

In his book, Welles outlines the need for a new scientific gospel to supersede the Judeo-Christian faiths of the western world. This new gospel consisted of a series of tomes which he and his colleague Julian Huxley composed, entitled: 1) The Outline of History (1920) where Wells re-wrote all of history wishing this analysis to replace the book of Genesis, 2)The Science of Life (1930), co-written with Sir Julian Huxley (Thomas Huxley’s Grandson who continued the family tradition along with Aldous), and 3) The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind (1932).

Part of this immense project to create a new coherent synthetic religion to re-organize humanity involved a re-packaging of a Darwinism that was falling out of favor with many scientists of the 1920’s. They recognized its failure to account for obvious features of nature such as directionality in evolution, spirit, intention, ideas and design.

This re-packaging took the form of the “New Evolutionary Synthesis” which attempted to save Darwin’s theory and its eugenic corollaries using Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s doctrine of the “Omega Man”. De Chardin’s system synthesized the foundation of Darwinian assumptions with an acknowledgment of evolutionary directionality, the possibility of spirit, and the existence of mind as a force of nature. The destructive slight of hand used by Chardin was that all of these “transcendent” features of design- spirit, mind, reason, etc.- were: 1) bound to a finite future point of no change which dominated and guided all apparent change in living space time, and 2) binding the world of mind and spirit to the forces of the material world. The Chardin-Huxley-Wells remix kept Darwin’s laws relevant and kept science compatible with imperial modes of social organization.

Outlining the aims of The Open Conspiracy, Wells writes: “Firstly, the entirely provisional nature of all existing governments, and the entirely provisional nature therefore, of all loyalties associated therewith; Secondly, the supreme importance of population control in human biology and the possibility it affords us of a release from the pressure of the struggle for existence on ourselves; and Thirdly, the urgent necessity of protective resistance against the present traditional drift towards war.”

By 1933, the planned Bankers’ Dictatorship, meant to solve the four years’ long great depression and organized during the months-long London Conference, was on the verge of being sabotaged by the recently-elected American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It was then that Wells published a new manifesto in the form of a fiction book called ‘Shape of Things to Come: The Ultimate Revolution’. This book (soon made into a Hollywood movie), served as an early tool of mass predictive programming showcasing a world destroyed by decades of global war, pandemic, and anarchy- all caused by… sovereign nation states.

The “solution” to these dark ages took the form of a masonic society of social engineers who descended from planes (Wells’ ‘Benevolent Dictatorship of the Air’) to restore order under a world government. Wells had his main character (a social psychologist) state “while the World Council was fighting for and directing and carrying on the unified World State, the Educational Control was remoulding mankind”. The social psychologists managing the World Government were “becoming the whole literature, philosophy and general thought of the world… the reasoning soul in the body of the race.”

The greatest problem to overcome, stated Wells, was “the variability of mental resistance to direction and limits set by nature to the ideal of an acquiescent cooperative world.”

Wells’ hero, Gustav de Windt, was “pre-occupied by his gigantic schemes for world organization, had treated the ‘spirit of opposition’ as purely evil, as a vice to be guarded against, as a trouble in the machinery which was to be minimized as completely as possible.”

In 1932, Wells gave an Oxford speech championing a global order run by liberal fascists saying: “I am asking for liberal Fascisti, for enlightened Nazis”. This was not paradoxical when one realizes that the rise of fascism was never a “nationalist” phenomenon as popular history books have asserted for decades but rather was the artificial consequence of a supranational financier-oligarchy from above who wished to use “enforcers” to bend their societies to a higher will.

The World Brain

By the time World War II began, Wells’ ideas had evolved new insidious components that later gave rise to such mechanisms as Wikipedia and Twitter in the form of “The World Brain” (19937) where Wells calls for reducing the English language to a “basic English” of 850 accepted words which would make up a world language. In this book, Wells states that “thinkers of the forward-looking type whose ideas we are now considering, are beginning to realize that the most hopeful line for the development of our racial intelligence lies rather in the direction of creating a new world organ for the collection, indexing, summarizing and release of knowledge, than in any further tinkering with the highly conservative and resistant university system, local, national and traditional in texture, which already exits. These innovators, who may be dreamers today, but who hope to become very active organizers tomorrow, project a unified, if not centralized, world organ to pull the mind of the world together.”

By 1940, Wells wrote the The New World Order which again amplified his message. In writing this,  he coordinated his efforts with the many Fabians and Rhodes Scholars who had infiltrated western foreign policy establishments in order to shape the the war, but more importantly, the post-war global structure. These were the networks that hated Franklin Roosevelt, Vice-President Henry Wallace, Harry Hopkins and other genuine “New Dealers” who wanted nothing more than to destroy colonialism once and for all in the wake of the war.

Wells insists that the “new age of brotherhood” that must guide the new United Nations must not tolerate sovereign nation states as FDR dreamed (and as was formally enshrined in the UN Charter) but must rather be guided by his caste of social engineers pulling the levers of production and consumption within a system of mass “collectivization” saying:

“Collectivisation means the handling of the common affairs of mankind by a common control responsible to the whole community. It means the suppression of go-as-you-please in social and economic affairs just as much as in international affairs. It means the frank abolition of profit-seeking and of every device by which human beings contrive to be parasitic on their fellow man. It is the practical realisation of the brotherhood of man through a common control”.

If Wells’ outlines look similar to those ideas recently made public by the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset, then don’t be surprised.

Wells’ Death and the Continuity of a Bad Idea

With Wells’ 1946 death, other Fabians and social engineers continued his work during the Cold War. One of the leading figures here being Wells’ associate, Lord Bertrand Russell, who wrote in his 1952 The Impact of Science on Society:

“I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology…. Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called ‘education’. Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema and the radio play an increasing part… it may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the state with money and equipment.”

“The subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship. The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at. First that the influence of home is obstructive. Second that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten. Thirdly verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark gray.”

Although the bodies of Wells, Russell and Huxley have long since rotted away, their rotten ideas continue to animate their disciples like Sir Henry Kissinger, George Soros, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, Lord Malloch-Brown (whose disturbing celebration of the Coronavirus as a golden opportunity to finally restructure civilization) should concern any thinking citizen. The idea of a “Great Reset” expounded by these modern mouthpieces of history’s bad ideas signals nothing more than a new Dark Age which should turn the stomach of any moral being.

It is here useful to hold the words of Kissinger in mind who had channeled the spectre of Wells telling a group of technocrats in Evian, France in 1992:

Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”

BBC Publishes Cringe Guide For "Talking To Conspiracy Theorist Relatives" At Christmas

BBC Publishes Cringe Guide For "Talking To Conspiracy Theorist Relatives" At Christmas

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

The British Broadcasting Corporation, the bastion of all that is proper and right, has published a handy Christmas guide for how to talk down to relatives who believe in nasty ‘conspiracy theories’, and it’s a huge sack full of cringe.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson effectively cancelled Christmas for a third of the UK, and is now threatening to lockdown the entire country on Boxing Day.

That is not enough for the woke state broadcaster, however, which clearly feels it needs to instruct Brit NPCs on how to debunk the dangerous disinformation being spread by their unmutual uncles and disharmonious descendants.

“How should you talk to friends and relatives who believe conspiracy theories?” The BBC headline reads.

“You’re dreading the moment. As your uncle passes the roast potatoes, he casually mentions that a coronavirus vaccine will be used to inject microchips into our bodies to track us,” the ‘five point guide’ outlines, adding “Or maybe it’s that point when a friend, after a couple of pints, starts talking about how Covid-19 ‘doesn’t exist’.”

“Or when pudding is ruined as a long-lost cousin starts spinning lurid tales about QAnon and elite Satanists eating babies.”


Ok, so what does one do in this horrible situation, oh mighty and wise Big BBC Brother?

“Keep calm; don’t be dismissive; encourage critical thinking; ask questions; don’t expect immediate results.”

Eh? So don’t immediately shut them down as a dangerous conspiracy theorist who spreads fake news? Just retain that thought in your head while you deeply patronise them with your received BBC approved spoon-fed opinion.

OK then.

Perhaps chase them down the street screeching questions about why they are not wearing a face mask? Probably a good tactic.

Next tip?

People who believe conspiracy theories often say: “I do my own research.”

Well, how dare they believe something not published by the BBC. How bloody awful.

“The problem is that their research tends to consist of watching fringe YouTube videos, following random people on Facebook, and cherry-picking evidence from biased Twitter account.”

So we take away their social media accounts then, right?

“Your aim is not to make them less curious or sceptical, but to change what they are curious about, or sceptical of.”

Ah, OK. Direct them to the BBC website then?

Any more tips, oh corporate board of directors earning millions per year from scalping old ladies by pretending they have to pay you to own a TV?

“Focus on those who are pushing these ideas, and what they might be getting,” says Claire Wardle. “For instance, financial gain by selling health supplements, or reputational gain in building a following.” 

Yeah, those evil conspiracy theorists, making a living AND selling vitamins that are good for your health.

What’s next Gandalf BBC?

“Conspiracy theories tend to be simple, powerful stories that explain the world. Reality is complex and messy, which is harder for our brains to process.”

Ouch, thinking hurts too much. Got it.

Wait, so pedos don’t run the world then?

BREAKING: Trump Reportedly Offered Attorney Sidney Powell Special Counsel Position But Now His Closest Aides Are Blocking Her from President


Attorney Sidney Powell told The Zenger News that she was offered verbally the position of special counsel by President Trump at the Friday night meeting in the Oval Office.

Sidney then added that President Trump’s closest advisors are blocking her from seeing the president or presenting him with paperwork to make it official!

MSN reported:

Pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell said Thursday that the president’s aides are preventing her from being in contact with President Trump and coordinating his efforts to overturn election results in battleground states around the country.

In an interview with Zenger News, Powell said she had heard only radio silence from the White House following her meeting with the president in the Oval Office on Friday, seemingly confirming that she was unable to speak to Trump when she visited the White House on Sunday.

“I’ve been blocked from speaking to or communicating with the president since I left the Oval Office on Friday night,” Powell told Zenger’s David Martsoko, “by apparently everyone around him.”

Powell also said she was verbally offered the position of “special counsel” by Trump during Friday’s meeting, but has been unable to present him with paperwork to make it official.

Newsweek added:

By Saturday morning, Powell says, the president’s most senior aides had declined to give her a Secret Service-issued pass to come and go from the West Wing. “I’ve been blocked from speaking to or communicating with the president since I left the Oval Office on Friday night,” she says, “by apparently everyone around him.”

This is shocking news.

.@SidneyPowell1 told Zenger News that White House aides are preventing her from being in contact w/ President Donald Trump & are blocking her efforts to assume a formal coordinating role in pursuing contest-of-election challenges on the president’s behalf.

Colleges Are Finally Starting To Cut Tuition

Colleges Are Finally Starting To Cut Tuition

It's amazing what adjustments the free market makes when an industry isn't constantly flooded with free money by the government for a couple days. 

Insanely priced college tuitions - long bid up thanks to the government's penchant for approving basically all student loans without rhyme or reason - are finally taking a tick lower. The move is starting at "a small handful of liberal arts colleges" who are looking to restart operations post-pandemic, Bloomberg noted

The Covid crisis has inadvertently put the industry in check while the Fed and the government focus their "cash flooding" strategy on things like corporate bonds and airlines. As a result, Oberlin College in Ohio has cut tuition by $10,000 for all students and Denison University is handing out a $100,000 scholarship over four years. Davidson College has put a freeze on its tuition. Princeton University had already cut tuition for undergraduates by 10% for 2020. 

Other colleges, like Grinnell College in Iowa, said that financial aid packages would include grants instead of loans. 

Oberlin was said to be considering the cuts prior to the pandemic: tuition, fees, room and board at the school was running an astonishing $76,000. Denison was charging $70,400 this year for tuition, room, board and fees. "Where's the inflation?" the Fed will ask.

Davidson's VP of Enrollment Management, Greg Sneed, said of the college's new scholarship: “We just want this to be simple in a complicated year.”

It's unclear if other larger schools are going to follow suit. 

Freshman enrollment has also fallen 13% this year as a result of Covid. We noted in a previous article this year that many students are attempting to defer their graduate school programs, as well. 

Steve Frappier, director of college counseling at the Westminster Schools in Atlanta, told Bloomberg: “The pendulum may be swinging a little bit toward the consumer side. But that’ll also depend on the selectivity of the school and the financial health of the school.”

Mark Hatch, vice president for enrollment at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, concluded: “If you’re under-enrolled and under-budget, those are pretty significant consequences. They’re four-year consequences.”

A brilliant analysis of vaccination, by Richard Moskowitz, MD and homeopath


by Jon Rappoport

December 24, 2020

(To join our email list, click here.)

In the age of COVID, vaccination looms large. As in mandatory. And of course, toxic.

I’ve already covered two new vaccine technologies, one of which has already been pushed forward, to “protect” people from a virus that has never been properly proven to exist.

DNA vaccines, aka gene therapy, permanently alter recipients’ genetic makeup in unknown ways. RNA vaccines (Pfizer’s and Moderna’s, just approved for COVID) can cause auto-immune reactions—which means the body attacks itself. [1] [2]

In this piece, I want to take a look at a few fundamentals about vaccination. In particular, the claim that vaccines have done a fantastic job of reducing case numbers of diseases, and therefore all criticisms of these injections are irrelevant.

From his bio [3]: “Richard Moskowitz was born in 1938, and educated at Harvard (B.A.) and New York University (M.D.). After medical school he did 3 years of graduate study in Philosophy at the University of Colorado in Boulder on a U. S. Steel Fellowship.”

“He took his internship at St. Anthony’s Hospital, Denver, and has been practicing family medicine since 1967, as well as attending about 800 home births. With a background in Oriental medicine and other forms of natural healing, Dr. Moskowitz studied homeopathy with George Vithoulkas in Greece and Rajan Sankaran and others in India.”

In 1987, while writing my first book, AIDS INC., I had a long conversation on the phone with Richard about vaccination. It was my first trip exploring vaccines as a form of immune-system suppression.

I had already seen that AIDS was actually a lumping together of various immune-system problems, none of which needed HIV as an explanation.

I still recall that phone conversation with Richard Moskowitz. I came away from it with an idea about how vaccines could be touted and trumpeted as the reason for vastly reducing cases of diseases, when in fact the reduction of visible symptoms was occurring—a very different thing.

If vaccines were lowering immune-system response, then the acute, vigorous, and all-out inflammatory reaction to germs would be eliminated. And it IS that acute reaction which creates the visible symptoms (rashes, spots, etc.).

Vaccination equals no cases of measles, the experts say. But really, as a result of vaccination, it’s just the visible rash that is missing, while something more dangerous, out of view, is going on in the body.

I’m printing here an excerpt from Richard’s article (written years ago), The Case Against Immunizations. The article is based on a classical view of germs and the action of the human immune system. The pros and cons of germ theory itself are a different matter, about which I’ve spoken and written in other places. [4] [5]

Note: Although the RNA COVID vaccines deploy a technology different from classical vaccines, they still rely on antibody response as the key to “producing immunity.” But that response is only one of many natural reactions in the body which maintain health and ward off disease.

From Dr. Richard Moskowitz’s brilliantly articulated article, The Case Against Immunizations: [6]

“It is dangerously misleading, and indeed the exact opposite of the truth, to claim that a vaccine renders us ‘immune’ to or protects us against an acute disease, if in fact it only drives the disease deeper into the interior and causes us to harbor it chronically instead, with the result that our responses to it become progressively weaker, but show less and less of a tendency to heal or resolve themselves spontaneously. What I propose, then, is to investigate as thoroughly and objectively as I can how the vaccines actually work inside the human body, and to begin by simply paying attention to the implications of what we already know. Consider the process of falling ill with and recovering from a typical acute disease, such as the measles, in contrast with what we can observe following administration of the measles vaccine.”

“…Once inhaled by a susceptible individual, the [measles] virus undergoes a prolonged period of silent multiplication, first in the tonsils, adenoids, and accessory lymphoid aggregations of the nasopharynx; later in the regional lymph nodes of the head and neck; and eventually, several days later, it passes into the blood and enters the spleen, the liver, the thymus, and the bone marrow, the ‘visceral’ organs of the immune system. Throughout this ‘incubation’ period, which lasts from 10 to 14 days, the patient typically feels quite well, and experiences few or no symptoms of any kind.”

“By the time that the first symptoms of measles appear, circulating antibodies are already detectable in the blood, and the height of the symptomatology coincides with the peak of the antibody response. In other words, the ‘illness’ that we call the measles is simply the definitive effort of the immune system to clear this virus from the blood. Notice also that this expulsion is accomplished by sneezing and coughing, i. e., via the same route through which it entered in the first place. It is abundantly clear from the above that the process of mounting and recovering from an acute illness like the measles involves a general mobilization of the immune system as a whole, including inflammation of the previously sensitized tissues at the portal(s) of entry, activation of leukocytes, macrophages, and the serum complement system, and a host of other mechanisms, of which the production of circulating antibodies is only one, and by no means the most important.”

“Such splendid outpourings indeed represent the decisive experiences in the normal physiological maturation of the immune system in the life of a healthy child. For recovery from the measles not only protects children from being susceptible to it again, no matter how many more times they may be exposed to it, but also prepares them to respond promptly and effectively to any other infections they may encounter in the future. The ability to mount a vigorous acute response to infection must therefore be reckoned among the most fundamental requirements of health and well-being that we all share.”

“By contrast, the live but artificially attenuated measles-virus vaccine is injected directly into the blood, by-passing the normal port of entry, and sets up at most a brief inflammatory reaction at the injection site, or perhaps in the regional lymph nodes, with no local sensitization at the normal portal of entry, no ‘incubation period,’ no generalized inflammatory response, and no generalized outpouring. By ‘tricking’ the body in this fashion, we have accomplished precisely what the entire immune system seems to have evolved to prevent: we have placed the virus directly into the blood, and given it free and immediate access to the major immune organs and tissues, without any obvious mechanism or route for getting rid of it.”

“The result is the production of circulating antibodies against the virus, which can in fact be measured in the blood; but this antibody response occurs as an isolated technical feat, without any overt illness to recover from, or any noticeable improvement in the general health of the recipient. Indeed I submit that exactly the opposite is true, that the price we have to pay for these antibodies is the persistence of viral elements in the blood for long periods of time, perhaps permanently, which in turn carries with it a systematic weakening of our capacity to mount an acute response, not only to the measles, but to other infections as well.”

“Far from producing a genuine immunity, then, my suspicion and my fear is that vaccines act by interfering with and even suppressing the immune response as a whole, in much the same way that radiation, chemotherapy, corticosteroids, and other anti-inflammatory drugs do. Artificial immunization focuses on antibody production, a single aspect of the immune process, disarticulates it, and allows it to stand for the whole, in much the same way as chemical suppression of an elevated blood pressure is accepted as a valid substitute for genuine healing or cure of the patient whose blood pressure has risen. It is the frosting on the cake, without the cake. The worst part of this counterfeiting is that it becomes more difficult, if not impossible, for vaccinated children to mount a normally acute and vigorous response to infection, by substituting for it a much weaker, essentially chronic response, with little or no tendency to heal itself spontaneously.”

This is an explanation of vaccination which chops down the claim that vaccines are wonderful because they eliminate cases of disease.

With experimental RNA COVID vaccines, who knows how long the injected RNA lingers in the body, and what effects it produces over time? The relatively short clinical trials certainly don’t offer useful conclusions. [7] [8] The CDC blithely assures us that once the injected RNA offers “instructions to cells of the body,” the cells destroy the RNA. Sounds magical. The cells wait, receive instructions, THEN destroy the messenger.

And again, as I stated above, RNA technology has, in the past, caused auto-immune reactions, in which the body basically attacks itself.
