Your Standard Of Living Is Being Systematically Destroyed

Most Americans didn’t understand that the exceedingly foolish decisions of our leaders would eventually have a major impact on how they live their lives every single day.  But there are some of us that did.  Many of us literally begged our politicians to stop borrowing and spending trillions upon trillions of dollars that we did not have.  But they refused to listen.  And many of us literally begged the officials at the Federal Reserve to stop pumping trillions upon trillions of fresh dollars into the financial system.  Of course they wouldn’t listen to us either.  Now our standard of living is steadily being eviscerated, and most of the population seems quite surprised that this is happening.

Will The First Public UFO Hearing In Congress In 50 Years Help Set The Stage For A Great Delusion Of Epic Proportions?

ORIGINAL LINK

Why have they suddenly decided to reveal so much?  For decades, a very thick cloak of secrecy has surrounded what the government really knows about UFOs, but now our politicians are talking openly about such things.  In fact, Congress just held their very first public hearing about UFOs in 50 years.  So what has changed?  If anything happens in Washington, it is usually because someone has an underlying agenda.  Could it be possible that we are being prepared for some sort of a huge revelation?

To me, it is clear that something is up.

And I think that it says a lot that the power structures in our society are now treating this topic very seriously.  At this point, even CNN is admitting that UFOs are no longer being “relegated to the fringes of public policy”…

Key lawmakers warned at a House hearing on Tuesday that unidentified aerial phenomena — popularly known as UFOs — must be investigated and taken seriously as a potential threat to national security.

The event marked the first congressional public hearing on UFOs in decades, a high-profile moment for a controversial topic that has long been relegated to the fringes of public policy.

During the hearing on Tuesday, U.S. officials confessed that there have been at least 400 “unexplained sightings” by members of our military…

US SPY chiefs were grilled by lawmakers in a historic hearing on UFOs as dramatic videos of two sightings were shown.

Security officials were forced to admit there have been 400 unexplained sightings reported by the US military .

That number is very different from the number that we were given in 2021.

Late last year, the Pentagon told us that there were just 144 unexplained sightings.

But now we are being told that the real number is nearly triple the original number.

And on Tuesday we were also told that there have been “11 near misses” with U.S. military aircraft…

They also confessed there have been 11 near misses with unidentified objects and US military aircraft, and they are probing incidents where craft may have attempted “jam” US planes.

So let me get this straight.

11 different times our aircraft were almost hit by other aircraft that we simply cannot identify?

Why weren’t we told about this a long time ago?

Of course there is so much more that the Pentagon is choosing not to tell us.  According to Politico, one Defense Department official is freely admitting that there is a great deal that is not being publicly revealed…

“Without forcing peoples’ hand, it is going to be very difficult to uncover legacy ventures and programs that we know about based on oral interviews we dug up,” said a Defense Department official who is involved in the new effort but was not authorized to speak publicly. “There has to be a forcing mechanism.”

“There has to be something to hold people accountable but also give them a chance to come out clean for a period of time,” the official added, noting that in his experience the Pentagon oversight group has been “stonewalled.”

That same official went on to explain that the people that are refusing to come forward are protecting some “very interesting information”.

I would definitely like to know what that “very interesting information” is.

Wouldn’t you?

I think that most of the population would be completely floored if everything that the government knows was finally put on the table.

According to one member of Congress, our military has actually recovered physical wreckage from a UFO that crashed…

A CONGRESSMAN has claimed the US has wreckage recovered from a UFO as the phenomena takes centre stage today in Washington.

Rep. Tim Burchett – a long term advocate for disclosure – told The Sun Online he has been informed by reliable sources that “material” has been recovered from the objects or craft that have been reported in skies over the US.

So why can’t the American people know about this?

What are they trying to hide from us?

Burchett says that he can’t say more because this information was given to him in a “classified setting”

The Tennessee Republican declined to elaborate further as he said the information had been passed to him in a “classified setting”.

“I’ve been told by multiple sources we have recovered something from these [crafts or objects],” Mr Burchett told The Sun Online.

It is so frustrating to hear about this and know that we will probably never be given the specific details.

The American people deserve the truth, but so much is being purposely hidden.

Lue Elizondo, a former senior staffer at the Pentagon, says that there has been much speculation in military circles about the true source of these unidentified craft

‘People jump to speculation that it’s from the Pleiades or something like that, when in fact one of the hypothesis when I was in AATIP was this could be as natural to Earth as we are, but we are just at a point where technologically we aren’t advanced enough we can collect information on it and begin to try to figure out what it is,’ he said.

‘There’s been another hypothesis that these things are possibly from underwater and as outlandish as it may seem, there is some anecdotal evidence that supports all of these observations, so what we want to do is try to get as much data on the table as we can before we start eliminating,’ said Elizondo.

He said way too much right there, because he got way too close to details that we aren’t supposed to know about.

If he keeps talking like that, he could end up being killed.

Because even though our officials are now talking more openly about UFOs, there are still many things that they would very much prefer to keep secret.

In my latest book, I talk extensively about the great deception that I believe is coming.

These unidentified aircraft are very real, and every year they are spotted thousands upon thousands of times all over the globe.

Now this subject is being brought out into the spotlight, and that should make all of us very nervous.

The Global Covid Summit: Restore Scientific Integrity

ORIGINAL LINK

The Global Covid Summit, comprising over 17,000 physicians and scientists, holds a press conference highlighting the Summit’s declaration to “Restore Scientific Integrity.”

Speakers include Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Ryan Cole, Harvey Risch, MD, PhD, Dr. Lynn Fynn, Dr. Mary Talley Bowden, Dr. Richard Urso and more.

Below us their statement.

***

We, the physicians and medical scientists of the world, united through our loyalty to the Hippocratic Oath, recognize that the disastrous COVID-19 public health policies imposed on doctors and our patients are the culmination of a corrupt medical alliance of pharmaceutical, insurance, and healthcare institutions, along with the financial trusts which control them. They have infiltrated our medical system at every level, and are protected and supported by a parallel alliance of big tech, media, academics and government agencies who profited from this orchestrated catastrophe.

This corrupt alliance has compromised the integrity of our most prestigious medical societies to which we belong, generating an illusion of scientific consensus by substituting truth with propaganda. This alliance continues to advance unscientific claims by censoring data, and intimidating and firing doctors and scientists for simply publishing actual clinical results or treating their patients with proven, life-saving medicine. These catastrophic decisions came at the expense of the innocent, who are forced to suffer health damage and death caused by intentionally withholding critical and time-sensitive treatments, or as a result of coerced genetic therapy injections, which are neither safe nor effective.

The medical community has denied patients the fundamental human right to provide true informed consent for the experimental COVID-19 injections. Our patients are also blocked from obtaining the information necessary to understand risks and benefits of vaccines, and their alternatives, due to widespread censorship and propaganda spread by governments, public health officials and media. Patients continue to be subjected to forced lock-downs which harm their health, careers and children’s education, and damage social and family bonds critical to civil society. This is not a coincidence. In the book entitled “COVID-19: The Great Reset”, leadership of this alliance has clearly stated their intention is to leverage COVID-19 as an “opportunity” to reset our entire global society, culture, political structures, and economy.

Our 17,000 Global COVID Summit physicians and medical scientists represent a much larger, enlightened global medical community who refuse to be compromised, and are united and willing to risk the wrath of the corrupt medical alliance to defend the health of their patients.

The mission of the Global COVID Summit is to end this orchestrated crisis, which has been illegitimately imposed on the world, and to formally declare that the actions of this corrupt alliance constitute nothing less than crimes against humanity.

We must restore the people’s trust in medicine, which begins with free and open dialogue between physicians and medical scientists. We must restore medical rights and patient autonomy. This includes the foundational principle of the sacred doctor-patient relationship. The social need for this is decades overdue, and therefore, we the physicians of the world are compelled to take action.

After two years of scientific research, millions of patients treated, hundreds of clinical trials performed and scientific data shared, we have demonstrated and documented our success in understanding and combating COVID-19. In considering the risks versus benefits of major policy decisions, our Global COVID Summit of 17,000 physicians and medical scientists from all over the world have reached consensus on the following foundational principles:

• We declare and the data confirm that the COVID-19 experimental genetic therapy injections must end.

• We declare doctors should not be blocked from providing life-saving medical treatment.

• We declare the state of national emergency, which facilitates corruption and extends the pandemic, should be immediately terminated.

• We declare medical privacy should never again be violated, and all travel and social restrictions must cease.

• We declare masks are not and have never been effective protection against an airborne respiratory virus in the community setting.

• We declare funding and research must be established for vaccination damage, death and suffering.

• We declare no opportunity should be denied, including education, career, military service or medical treatment, over unwillingness to take an injection.

• We declare that first amendment violations and medical censorship by government, technology and media companies should cease, and the Bill of Rights be upheld.

• We declare that Pfizer, Moderna, BioNTech, Janssen, Astra Zeneca, and their enablers, withheld and willfully omitted safety and effectiveness information from patients and physicians, and should be immediately indicted for fraud.

• We declare government and medical agencies must be held accountable.

David Stockman On The Monetary Madness Among The Central Bankers

David Stockman On The Monetary Madness Among The Central Bankers

Authored by David Stockman via InternationalMan.com,

Here is the combined balance sheet for the four most important central banks in the world: the Fed, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Bank of Japan (BOJ) and the People’s Bank of China (PBOC).

On the eve of the great financial crisis in 2007, their combined balance sheets stood at just $5 trillion. Today the figure is $31.5 trillion.

Need we say more?

The red line in the chart below shows the recent parabolic rise of the inflation rate in the eurozone. By contrast, the blue dotted line represents the ECB’s wisdom from just three months ago about where inflation was headed, while the solid blue line reflects its current wishful thinking. To wit, that inflation will be back in the sacred 2.00% box by next year.

We’d say, “Good luck with that!”

For want of doubt, here’s the recent inflation explosion in the sober Dutch economy. At 11.7% in the recent month, the Y/Y rate has just plain gone vertical. And that doesn’t yet include the full effect of NATO’s madcap Sanctions War against the world’s largest commodity producer, Russia.

Still, what did these cats expect after running the printing presses like there was no tomorrow for the better part of two decades?

As shown below, the ECB’s balance sheet first crossed the €1.0 trillion mark in October 2005 but now stands at €8.7 trillion.

Balance Sheet of the ECB, 2005–2022

That’s reflective of a 14.1% annualized growth rate year in and year out for 16.5 years running. Yet all the while, like their Fed kinsmen, they have been squawking about “lowflation.”

Never has an agency of the state been so drastically wrong as the leading central banks for the entirety of this century to date. They now have the world flooded with excess demand just as the artificial and unsustainable China-based supply chain, which temporarily facilitated the appearance of low inflation, has come totally unstuck.

For want of doubt, here is the nominal and real GDP in the eurozone for the same 16-year period. Rather than the ECB’s 8,700% gain from its starting level, nominal GDP is up by only 49% and real GDP is higher by a mere 17%. In annualized growth terms, that computes to some pretty tepid figures:  2.48% and 1.00%, respectively, for nominal and real GDP.

Nominal and Real Eurozone GDP, 2005–2021

That’s right. A 14.1% growth rate of the ECB’s balance sheet resulted in nominal GDP growth that was less than one-fifth of that magnitude and a real output expansion rate that amounted to just 7% of the growth rate of central bank credit.

Stated differently, in Q3 2005, the ECB’s balance sheet stood at an already frisky 11.8% of eurozone nominal GDP, but it now weighs in at a lunatic 69% of nominal GDP.

“What were these people thinking?” is surely the question of the hour.

Then again, no one can hold a candle to the BOJ when it comes to fruitless money printing. Since the latter revved up its printing presses to hyper-drive earlier than the Fed and ECB, we display a period beginning in Q2 1998 below.

Change in Japan’s Nominal and Real GDP Versus BOJ’s Balance Sheet Since Q2 1998

Here are the compound annual growth rates for that 23.5-year interval:

  • BOJ Balance Sheet: 1%;

  • Japan Nominal GDP:05%;

  • Japan Real GDP: 6%.

You can’t make this up. During the past nearly quarter of a century, the BOJ’s balance sheet (purple line in the chart above) has grown 202 times faster than Japan’s nominal GDP (brown line)!

Not surprisingly, this vast disconnect has caused the BOJ’s balance sheet to soar to ¥570 trillion, which is 106% of Japan’s ¥540 trillion of nominal GDP. Getting there, of course, required absorbing huge amounts of Japan’s ginormous public debt.

Currently, that debt stands at ¥1.22 quadrillion — yes, that’s quadrillion with a Q. It amounts to 227% of GDP and is manageable only because the BOJ has monetized more than 44% of the total, while as a practical matter the ministry of finance forces banks, insurance companies and pensions to absorb most of the rest, notwithstanding microscopic yields.

Yield on 10-Year Japanese Government Bond, 1989–2022

The major central banks of the world have been in a race to the bottom — a dynamic that causes all kinds of derivative financial and economic dislocations.

At the end of the day, the major central banks of the world have printed themselves into a hellacious corner. The four major central banks — the Fed, ECB, BOJ and PBOC —now have $31.1 trillion of asset footings today, compared to just $5.0 trillion at the end of 2006; and when you add the lesser central banks, the combined balance sheets exceed $35 trillion.

Stated differently, the central banks of the world have printed upwards of $30 trillion in fiat credits during the last 16 years, with the Fed leading the way. And yet the knuckleheads who run them have been surprised by the eruption of inflation in recent months and quarters.

*  *  *

The Fed has already pumped enormous distortions into the economy and inflated an “everything bubble.” The next round of money printing is likely to bring the situation to a breaking point.

Mood On Wall Street Has Never Been More Apocalyptic; Tech Short Is Biggest Since 2006

ORIGINAL LINK
Mood On Wall Street Has Never Been More Apocalyptic; Tech Short Is Biggest Since 2006

One month after the April Fund Manager Survey was downright "apocalyptic" with the majority seeing a bear market and stagflation - yet nobody rushing to sell - and with optimism plunging to levels right before Lehman, today Bank of America published the latest, May FMS (available to pro subscribers in the usual place) in which the bank's doom-and-gloomy Chief Investment Strategist Michael Hartnett (who most recently warned that the bear market will end when the S&P hits 3,000 in October) found that his view is shared by a growing number of even more apocalyptic Wall Street professionals, because the survey which polled 331 panelists managing $986 billion in AUM, revealed global growth expectations plunged even more compared to last month, and dropped to fresh all-time lows (net -72%) ...

... with profit expectations slumping past the COVID lows to net -66% (from 63%), the weakest since Oct’08, smack in the middle of the Global Financial Crisis. (note lows in global profit expectations consistent with other crisis moments such as LTCM, Dotcom bubble burst, Lehman bankruptcy, and COVID)...

... and stagflation fears soaring to 77% (from 66%) the highest since August 2008.

And while the mood has rarely been more pessimistic, with the FMS signaling the highest cash levels in 20 years, since Sept 11, indicative of major risk aversion...

... as Wall Street finds itself most short tech - everyone's darling sector as recently as 2021 - since Aug 2006...

... as a big rotation out of tech drives the relative investor overweight in tech vs staples (really underweight) to Oct 2008 lows...

.... sparked by the biggest equity underweight since May 2020 (at net 13% UW vs net 6% OW in Apr)....

... and a BofA Bull & Bear Indicator at 2.0, just on the verge of the 'contrarian buy" level, which would give a brief all-clear window to buy, we are still missing what Hartnett calls the "full capitulation" piece. 

As such, while stocks are prone to imminent bear rallies - like today for example- but as Hartnett writes echoing what he said in his latest Flow Show note last Friday, "the ultimate lows have not yet been reached" as investors expect rate hikes not cuts.

Digging deeper into the FMS survey, we first find that even Wall Street is urging corporations to ease back on the buybacks (and CapEx spending, but nobody really spends on CapEx) and investors want CEOs to improve balance sheet not spend capex or buybacks for 1st time since Jan’21.

The next part came as a surprise to us, because it confirms that peak inflation is now consensus: that's because 68% expect inflation rates to drop coming quarters...

... with fewer and fewer (net 34%, down from 53% in April) expect bond yields to rise from here (but big difference with prior “big lows” Is 78% expect short rates to rise)...

... as investors still expect a total of 7.9 Fed hikes this cycle (up from 7.4 in April).

There was less surprise in the latest monthly estimate of where the Fed "put" is: it slid again (along with the market), dropping to 3529 on S&P500 (-12% from current levels).

Turning to risk, the survey said that the #1 tail risk in May are hawkish central banks, followed closely by #2 recession; with risks from inflation and Russia/Ukraine dropping surprisingly to third.

Overall, monetary (i.e, central bank) risk has overtaken geopolitical as the biggest risk to market stability, at net 52%, a record high...

... while geopolitical risk moves to the second biggest risk to financial market stability at net 87% (from 92%) followed by business cycle risk (75%) and EM risk (57%).

Broken down on a monthly basis, the chart of the global FMS biggest tail risk shows more of the same: fears that central banks will blow it all up.

Hartnett next turns to his trademark Financial Market Stability Risk indicator, which continues to rise as stocks slide. According to the BofA CIO, "our FMS Financial Market Stability Risks Indicator is currently at 7.5, a record high. Elevated levels of risk aversion comparable to prior crisis moments (GFC, COVID shock). The high perceived risk to financial market stability also points to a further decline in equity prices This chart is the sum of the z-scores (from Chart 12) to create our FMS Financial Market Stability Risks Index."

And speaking of what could spark a crash, the May FMS founds that speculative tech and zombie corporations are tied at 18% for the most likely source of a future credit event or default.

Some other notable questions in the FMS suggest that peak oil may be coming and that it is again time to rotate into bitcoin. Why? Because 56% of FMS investors think oil will produce the best returns in 2022 but only 2% think bitcoin will outperform. Expect the opposite.

... especially since Long oil/commodities remains the most crowded trade.

Looking at consensus positioning, Hartnett finds that investors are very long cash, commodities, healthcare, staples...

... and very short tech, equities, Europe, EM.

How to trade this? Go long what is underinvested and short what everyone is long, or do the opposite of the latest rotation where investors have gotten more defensive (i.e. staples, cash, healthcare) while at the same time cut exposure to tech, US, equities and
EM. To wit, since in May, FMS investors rotated out of tech, banks, and energy...

...while getting slightly less negative on EU. Investors also got more negative on US, UK, and EM equities, and are currently still underweight EM equities on a historical basis but want to increase their exposure as well in the next 12 months.

Ironically, that means going long tech since the allocation to tech is the lowest since Aug’06, and to defensives on par with GFC, Euro-crisis, COVID-crisis levels, while the allocation to stocks is lowest since May’20 (but not as low as prior crisis levels).

Finally, here are the contrarian trades recommended by Hartnett:

  • to express H2 recession...long bonds-short commodities, long utilities-short energy;
  • to express H2 soft landing...long EM/Europe-short cash, long tech- short healthcare, long discretionary-short staples

There is much more in the full fund manager survey available to professional subscribers at the usual place.

Fully Vaccinated Prone To Developing Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

ORIGINAL LINK
The mRNA injections produced by Moderna, Pfizer, etc. all directly meddle with immune system functions. Based on government supplied data, they are now being linked with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Watch Big Pharma and their hoard of fact checking trolls jump on this with screams of denial and feigned outrage. ⁃ TN Editor

Something is very wrong, and it is because of the Covid-19 injections.

All around the world, Governments are publishing official data that all show the same thing. Those same Governments however are not willing to explain why.

Instead, they are quietly publishing data in the hope that it will get swept under the carpet whilst they have you distracted by war in Ukraine and worrying about the cost of living; a crisis created by Government policy.

But with the publication of confidential Pfizer documents, Governments around the world are running out of places to hide, and if these worrying trends continue, they will be forced to admit the Covid-19 injections are either causing Antibody-Dependent Enhancement or something much worse… Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome.

Whilst rare, it is perfectly possible for a medication or drug to cause Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, and data published by Public Health Scotland, the New Zealand Ministry of Health, the Government of Canada, the UK Health Security Agency, the Office for National Statistics, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control strongly suggests the Covid-19 injections should be added to the list.

How else can Governments around the world explain the fact the fully vaccinated are more likely to be infected with Covid-19, more likely to be hospitalised with Covid-19, and more likely to die of Covid-19 than the unvaccinated?

How else can Governments around the world explain the huge rise in all-cause mortality rates among the fully vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated?

How else can Governments around the world explain the 1,145% to 33,715% increase in AIDS-related diseases, cancers and infections reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System in 2021?

Scotland

Public Health Scotland announced in January that from the 6th Feb 22, they would no longer report Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths by vaccination status on a weekly basis.

Here’s why –

The charts above have been created using the figures published by Public Health Scotland in their ‘COVID-19 & Winter Statistical Report‘ published 16th Feb 22, and they show that Covid-19 infection, hospitalisation and death rates per 100,000 individuals were consistently higher among the fully vaccinated population.

This is what Covid-19 vaccination has done to the people of Scotland.

New Zealand

The following chart shows the true number of Covid-19 cases by vaccination status between 6th Jan and 11th Feb, and between 12th Feb and 24th Feb in New Zealand. The data has been extracted from the following official New Zealand Ministry of Health ‘Covid-19: Case Demographics’ reports –

As you can see in both periods the fully vaccinated population accounted for the majority of Covid-19 cases, but the difference in the number of cases by vaccination status between 12th Feb and 24th Feb is shocking.

The following chart shows the Covid-19 case rate per 100k population by vaccination status between 6th Jan and 11th Feb, and between 12th Feb and 24th Feb 22 in New Zealand base on the cases above –

These case rates, just like the Public Health Scotland case rates, certainly pour water on the bonfire of anyone who says “vaccination reduces the chances of being infected with Covid-19”, don’t they?

This means the Covid-19 injections have a real-world negative effectiveness, and we’re able to use Pfizer’s vaccine effectiveness formula to calculate it.

Unvaccinated case rate – Vaccinated case rate / Unvaccinated case rate = Vaccine Effectiveness

The following chart shows the real-world two-dose Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness between 6th Jan and 11th Feb, and between 12th Feb and 24th Feb 22 –

Between 6th Jan and 11th Feb the real-world Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness proved to be minus-94.4%, but by the 24th Feb, the real-world vaccine effectiveness fell to minus-281.35%. This means the fully vaccinated were 3.8 times more likely to be infected with Covid-19 than the unvaccinated/one dose vaccinated population.

This is what double vaccination has done to the people of New Zealand.

Canada

Despite the Government enforcing Draconian restrictions which have in turn coerced millions into getting the Covid-19 injections, since the turn of the year the country of Canada has experienced its largest wave of Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths to date.

Why?

Official Government of Canada data shows that the vaccinated population as a whole has accounted for 4 in every 5 Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths from 21st February 2022, up to 17th April.

But it also shows the case/hospitalisation/death-rates per 100,000 population have been highest among the triple vaccinated during the same time frame.

So high that the data shows the triple vaccinated are on average 4 times more likely to be infected with Covid-19, 2 times more likely to be hospitalised with Covid-19, and 3 times more likely to die of Covid-19 than the unvaccinated.

New Research Shows “Harvesting Blood & Body Parts of the Young” Could Help Achieve “Immortality”

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

New scientific research by Stanford University reveals that “harvesting the blood and body parts of the young in the hope of achieving immortality” is no longer just a “trope in horror novels,” but a feasible likelihood.

Yes, really.

According to a report by the Telegraph newspaper, research by Stanford shows that “infusing cerebrospinal fluid of young mice into old mice improves brain function,” opening the door for similar applications to humans.

The Stanford team infused fluid from 10-week-old mice into the brains of 18-month-old mice over seven days, and found that older mice were better at remembering to associate a small electric shock with a noise and flashing light.

Closer examination showed the fluid had “woken up” processes which regenerate neurons and myelin – the fatty material that protects nerve cells within the hippocampus, the memory centre of the brain.

🩸 Harvesting the blood and body parts of the young in the hope of achieving immortality has long been a trope in horror novels.

💉But now, scientists have found that cerebrospinal fluid infusions can regenerate the brain’s memory centre and may help to rejuvenate elderly bodies

— Telegraph Life (@TelegraphLife) May 15, 2022

The study shows that the same process could be applied to anti-ageing research, and that, “Experiments are even showing that young blood itself can reverse the ageing process, perhaps even curing Alzheimer’s disease.”

Elitists and transhumanists have long been interested in harvesting material from young people in a bid to pursue life-extension.

Former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il routinely had himself injected with blood taken from young, healthy virgins in the belief that it would help him live longer.

The Telegraph report notes that, “Harvesting the blood and body parts of the young in the hope of achieving immortality has long been a familiar trope in horror novels and conspiracy theories.”

Apparently, not for much longer.

“It may only be a few years before “youth transplants” finally move from the pages of gothic horror novels into the clinic,” writes Sarah Knapton.

Meanwhile, in other news, a giant piece of skywriting that said ‘Alex Jones Was Right’ appeared above Los Angeles over the weekend.

Just a coincidence.

Swim Coaches Recommend a Transgender Division for Athletes

ORIGINAL LINK

thomsprin.jpg

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The World Swimming Coaches Association (WSCA) is recommending that FINA, a governing body for aquatic sports, create a transgender division to account for men’s biological advantages over women. 

“FINA and its aquatic disciplines are also a pillar of the Olympic Movement and give a decisive contribution to the success of the Games,” the body states on its website.

WSCA concludes in its statement, “For the sport of swimming, the inclusion of transgender people on the grounds of fairness cannot co-exist in the current competitive model.” 

“Swimming should choose to offer competition in which the female category is protected for reasons of competitive fairness,” the association further states

The statement was published nearly two months after collegiate swimming was thrust into the national spotlight after transgender athlete Lia Thomas became the first openly trans-athlete to win a national title.

Thomas was eligible to compete as a biological man despite newly adopted standards by USA Swimming in an attempt to level the playing field while balancing inclusivity.

Campus Reform spoke with female athletes in January who echoed similar concerns about physical differences. The athletes all said that despite intense training, they are unable to compete against men because of biological differences.

The WSCA statement addresses such “retained differences” despite the “involvement of testosterone suppression.” 

The passage reads: 

“[T]he inclusion of transgender people into female sports cannot be balanced with fairness due to the retained differences in strength, stamina and physique that are present when comparing the average female with the average transgender female/non-binary person who was assigned male at birth (whether with or without the involvement of testosterone suppression).”

WCSA is advising one of two options. 

One option would name a “female” category and a separate “open” category, while another option would create three categories specified as “female,” “male,” and “open.”

Relatedly, Campus Reform has reported that 17 states have passed legislation requiring athletes to compete based on their biological sex. 

Last week, Campus Reform reported that Kansas Governor Laura Kelly vetoed her state’s “Fairness in Women’s Sports Act” and that Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is threatening to veto his state’s equivalent legislation. 

Discussing how Biden’s policies have had a negative effect on the public, Alex Jones called on Republicans to introduce articles of impeachment against the Democrat puppet president in order to save the country.

Now We Are Being Told To Expect Food And Diesel Shortages For The Foreseeable Future

Now We Are Being Told To Expect Food And Diesel Shortages For The Foreseeable Future

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

If you think that the food and diesel shortages are bad now, then you will be absolutely horrified by what the globe is experiencing by the end of the year.  All over the planet, food production is being crippled by an unprecedented confluence of factors.  The war in Ukraine, extremely bizarre weather patterns, nightmarish plagues and a historic fertilizer crisis have combined to create a “perfect storm” that isn’t going away any time soon.  As a result, the food that won’t be grown in 2022 will become an extremely severe global problem by the end of this calendar year.  Global wheat prices have already risen by more than 40 percent since the start of 2022, but this is just the beginning.  Meanwhile, we are facing unthinkable diesel fuel shortages in the United States this summer, and as you will see below there are “no plans” to increase refining capacity in this country for the foreseeable future.

If you had told me six months ago that we would be dealing with the worst baby formula shortage in U.S. history in the middle of 2022, I am not sure that I would have believed you.

But that is precisely what we are now facing.  One young couple in Florida searched stores in their area for four hours and couldn’t find anything

When Erik and Kelly Schmidt, both 35, went into a Central Florida Target store this week to buy their usual baby formula, Up & Up Gentle, for their five-month-old twins, they found an empty shelf.

The pair then embarked on a half-day journey in search of formula, any formula, and their quest didn’t end there. “We spent over four hours going to every Target, different Walmarts, different grocery stores, just finding absolutely nothing,” Erik Schmidt said.

Of course the Biden administration has made sure that there is enough baby formula for migrants that are illegally crossing the border, but for millions of ordinary American families this crisis has become a complete and utter nightmare.

One father actually broke down in tears right in the middle of the baby formula aisle in Walmart because things have become so desperate for his family…

Sara Owens, of Florence County, said she was hunting for baby formula for his six-month-old daughter, Namoi, amid a nationwide shortage when she encountered a dad break into tears after driving from store to store looking for his daughter’s brand of formula.

‘As tears continued to stream down his face he said ‘I never thought I would be crying because I can’t find what my child has to have,” Owens wote in the Facebook post that’s been shared more than 180,000 times. ‘My heart broke to 100 pieces on the formula aisle in Walmart.’

Sadly, we shouldn’t expect any improvement any time soon.

As I discussed last week, the Biden administration shut down one of the most important baby formula manufacturing facilities in this country a while ago, and the CEO of Abbott Nutrition says that it will take a few months to get products back on the shelves once the FDA finally allows them to reopen the plant…

Meanwhile, the plant remains closed as the company works to make upgrades to the facility to meet the FDA’s recommendations. Abbott says it can have products from the facility back on store shelves after a few months once the FDA signs off on them doing so.

Needless to say, baby formula is not the only thing in short supply right now.  As shortages grow and prices spiral out of control, grocery stores are increasingly becoming prime targets for thieves.

In fact, things have already gotten so bad in the Midwest that one major supermarket chain has decided to post armed guards in their stores

The shoulder patches say, “A Helpful Smile in Every Aisle,” but the police-style uniforms, complete with belts with holstered taser and possibly handguns, may send a very different message as Hy-Vee deploys a new retail security team in its stores.

The West Des Moines-based supermarket chain will begin introducing its own security force “as part of its ongoing efforts to ensure the health and safety of both its customers and employees,” the company announced in a news release on Dec. 29. The program will roll out throughout 2022, but security teams are already present in some stores.

As I have warned for many years, eventually we will see armed guards in supermarkets and on food delivery trucks all over the nation.

In the months ahead, food production is going to be way below expectations all over the globe.  The following summary of what farmers are currently facing comes from Zero Hedge

Across the world, top wheat-producing regions are experiencing adverse weather conditions that could threaten production. In places like Ukraine, a military invasion by Russia has slashed production significantly. All of this suggests the world is on the cusp of a food crisis.

Droughts, floods, and heatwaves have plagued farmland in the U.S., Europe, India, and China. As for Ukraine, the world’s largest wheat producer, the war could slash production by upwards of a third.

As I have previously detailed, some countries have already decided to ban certain types of agricultural exports as they brace for the coming global food crisis.

And we just learned that India has now decided to ban the export of all wheat

India, the second-largest producer of wheat, has banned exports of the commodity, due to a risk to its food security.

A Friday notice in the government gazette signed by Santosh Kumar Sarangi, the Director General of Foreign Trade, said that a “sudden spike” in the global prices of wheat was putting India, neighboring and other vulnerable countries at risk.

This is huge.

Supplies of food are getting tighter with each passing week, and this is already starting to spark food riots all over the world.

For example, we witnessed some very emotional protests in Iran last week

Protests broke out in Iran Thursday after the government cut subsidies for food, sending prices through the roof as authorities brace for more unrest in the following weeks.

In videos shared on social media, protesters can be seen marching through Dezful and Mahshahr in the southwestern province of Khezestan, chanting “Death to Khamenei! Death to Raisi!” referring to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has promised to create jobs, lift sanctions, and rescue the economy.

And in Sri Lanka the citizens are so angry that they are actually burning down the homes of politicians

Protesters in Sri Lanka have burned down homes belonging to 38 politicians as the crisis-hit country plunged further into chaos, with the government ordering troops to “shoot on sight.”

Police in the island nation said Tuesday that in addition to the destroyed homes, 75 others have been damaged as angry Sri Lankans continue to defy a nationwide curfew to protest against what they say is the government’s mishandling of the country’s worst economic crisis since 1948.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Things will get really crazy in the months ahead as global food supples get a whole lot tighter.

Meanwhile, we are being warned that there is likely to be a “diesel fuel shortage on the East Coast” during the months ahead…

The possibility of a diesel fuel shortage is being monitored as diesel fuel prices across the country and in Maryland continue to surpass all-time highs.

According to fuel industry experts, all signs are pointing to a potential diesel fuel shortage on the East Coast that could cripple an already fragile supply chain.

Last week, the price of diesel fuel in the U.S. rose to an all-time record high of $5.62 a gallon, and it is only going to go higher.

The biggest reason why we are facing such a supply crunch right now is because there are “simply too few refineries turning oil into usable fuels”

From record gasoline prices to higher airfares to fears of diesel rationing ahead, America’s runaway energy market is disquieting both US travelers and the wider economy. But the chief driver isn’t high crude prices or even the rebound in demand: It’s simply too few refineries turning oil into usable fuels.

Surely more refineries are being built to meet the growing demand, right?

Wrong.

Mountains of regulations that have been instituted by our politicians make it extremely difficult to build and operate a new refinery in this country.

As a result, we are being told that “the supply squeeze is only going to get worse” for the foreseeable future…

More than 1 million barrels a day of the country’s oil refining capacity — or about 5% overall — has shut since the beginning of the pandemic. Elsewhere in the world, capacity has shrunk by 2.13 million additional barrels a day, energy consultancy Turner, Mason & Co. estimates. And with no plans to bring new US plants online, even though refiners are reaping record profits, the supply squeeze is only going to get worse.

To a very large degree, we have done this to ourselves.

And as I keep telling my readers, decades of very foolish decisions are starting to catch up with us in a major way.

Our trucks and our trains run on diesel, and so a shortage of diesel will only make our ongoing supply chain crisis even worse.

This nightmare never seems to end, and there will be plenty of pain in the months ahead.

Russia Vows To Respond To NATO Expansion in Finland and Sweden

ORIGINAL LINK

Russia has promised to respond to NATO’s (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) expansion into Finland and Sweden. Russia will not simply watch as Finland and Sweden join NATO, the country’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov warned on Monday.

Speaking to Russian journalists, the government official called the move by the two nations “the latest serious mistake with long-lasting ramifications” in the West and said it demonstrated “the level” of those taking such decisions. “It reflects the false distorted perceptions of events taking place in the world by the policymakers in the West, particularly in northern Europe. It is obvious for us that the security of Sweden and Finland will not be strengthened by it,” Ryabkov said.

NATO is continuing to push Russia into what could be a major conflict escalating into a World War. “[NATO] should have no illusions that [Russia] would simply tolerate it,” Ryabkov said adding that the two Nordic nations chose to “sacrifice common sense” and take a step to further escalate military tensions in Europe by seeking NATO membership, according to a report by RT

The ruling classes in Finland and Sweden are expected to vote to apply for NATO membership after their respective governments supported the policy change last week. Both nations remained outside of the United States-led military bloc throughout the Cold War, but claim they need to join it now due to Russia’s offensive against Ukraine and in spite of Russia’s threats.

This is an obvious escalation intentionally done to provoke Russia by the West. Russia stated that NATO’s expansion toward its border since the collapse of the Soviet Union posed a critical threat to its national security. The Russian government claimed that the assistance that the alliance has given to Kyiv to build up its military had crossed a red line and forced Russia’s hand.

And the U.S. can not be bothered to stay out of conflicts and wars. The rulers tend to send their slaves off to die for any and every reason to cement their own power, so it isn’t a surprise that the escalation has continued. At some point, this could pop off into a worldwide conflagration, and we should all stay alert to that possibility.
