Children’s Health Defense (Robert F. Kennedy Jr.) – Gates’ Globalist Vaccine Agenda: A Win-Win for Pharma and Mandatory Vaccination

robertfkennedyjr (Instagram)

A New York Times reporter asked me yesterday about the “conspiracy theory” that #BillGates is developing injectable chip to store vaccine records.

The Bill and Melinda #GatesFoundation invested more than $21 million to perfect a “microneedle technology” that embeds, under the skin, a vaccination record visible by infrared light that can be read by a “minimally-adopted smartphone technology.” The technology will allow health officials to scan U.S. citizens to detect their vaccination compliance.

A study funded by the Bill and Melinda #Gates Foundation and published in December 2019 by researchers from MIT, the Institute of Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Gates-funded Intellectual Ventures Laboratory in Bellevue, WA, describes how “near-infrared quantum dots” will be implanted under the skin along with a vaccine to encode information for “decentralized data storage and bio-sensing.” Gates’ technology uses a tattoo-like mechanism to inject invisible nanoparticles subcutaneously. Gates’ researchers are now testing the implant with a vaccine against the #COVID-19 virus.

The Gates-funded report boasts that the chip system will allow “house-to-house” compliance searches to be conducted by government enforcement teams with “minimal training,” and will “open up new avenues for decentralized data storage and biosensing.” The #MIT paper is titled “Biocompatible near-infrared quantum dots delivered to the skin by microneedle patches to record vaccination.” Gates began funding implantable tracking chips and ratio biotechnology in 2011 with a grant to TransDerm Inc. Gates is currently making multiple investments to develop different versions, including grants to Vaxxas Pty Ltd, Micron Biomedical Inc, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Vaxess Technologies Inc.

I urge you to contact Bill Gates on his social media. Gently explain that tagging and tracking humans may appeal to his government cronies in totalitarian China, but those activities are inconsistent with American values and traditions.

Information Clearing House (Ellen Brown) – The Fed’s Baffling Response to the Coronavirus Explained

Pepe Escobar from his social media, March 16…


Let’s talk about the hardcore stuff.

Goldman Sachs told no less than 1,500 corporations on Friday that there was NO systemic risk.

My NYC sources say the truth is that the systemic risk is WAY more severe than 1979, 1987 or 2008 – “in that the 1.5 Quadrillion Derivative Market was about to collapse which is far higher than then.”

As you know, I’ve written a lot about the derivative tsunami for the past year or so. Some pretty good Swiss sources swear the tsunami is at 28.4 TIMES THE WORLD’S GDP – at 2.5 quadrillion.

As one of the NYC sources put it, nothing like this ever happened in history: “The intervention of the FED is unprecedented in the little understood elimination of commercial bank reserve requirements unleashing a potential unlimited expansion of credit to prevent a derivative implosion stemming from a total commodity and stock market collapse of all stocks around the world.”

As you all know by now the Fed made an emergency announcement on Sunday saying it would cut interest rates to near zero for the first time since the 2008 global financial crisis. This had to be on Sunday to avoid panic in Asia on Monday morning. Well, the panic happened – but in coronavirus epicenter Europe.

The ECB – remember Vuitton Lagarde saying she doesn’t give a damn about Italy – also has its own “stimulus package”. And on top of it, all coordinated, Fed, Bank of Japan, ECB, Swiss National Bank, Bank of Canada and Bank of England said they would use their swap lines to “support” the international supply of, you guessed it, US DOLLARS. They even added a weekly offering of US dollars “over a longer maturity”.

Once again, the New York guys: “Instead of the FED buying Dow Jones stocks to forestall a collapse, or oil futures – frantic efforts are being made to reverse the Saudi-Russian oil price war – the commercial banks will engineer the buying which under central bank supervision can ‘guide’ the banks into forestalling a complete market collapse.”

All this under the assumption that the coronavirus pandemic will fade away by mid-June. The top Chinese specialist – I posted about it earlier today – says it wont. Expect extra turbo-charged FED/ECB scams ahead.

Moreover, Pompeo evidently reiterated certain threats that had been made to the previous Prime Minister, Abdul-Mahdi, as previously reported in January (see South Front, Moon of Alabama, Mint Press News). Reading between the lines (with our emphasis)…

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a call with Iraq’s Prime Minister-designate Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi on Sunday, “stressed Iraq’s obligation to protect US and coalition diplomats, forces, and facilities,” State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said in a readout of the call. “Secretary Pompeo and Prime Minister-designate Allawi discussed the protest movement and the urgency with which Iraq’s next government must put an end to the killing of protesters, seek justice for those killed and wounded, and address their legitimate grievances.”

“We are beginning to engage with the government of Iraq such as it is, on the nature of our strategic relationship,” including economic and diplomatic issues and our presence on the ground, Schenker said today, adding there will not be a withdrawal of US forces from Iraq.

Al MonitorInside the US-Iran prisoner swap, and what comes next

Days before an Iranian stem cell scientist was due to plead guilty and be sentenced to time served by an Atlanta judge as part of a carefully negotiated prisoner swap that would lead to the release by Iran of Princeton graduate student Xiyue Wang, a potential spoiler emerged.

State Department Iran envoy Brian Hook sent a message to the Swiss and Iranians that former New Mexico governor and US Ambassador to the United Nations Bill Richardson was not authorized to negotiate the swap by the US government, according to a person involved in the negotiations. Instead, the Justice Department directed the US attorney in Atlanta to drop all charges against the stem cell scientist, Masoud Soleimani…

Mickey Bergman, the vice president of the Richardson Center for Global Engagement … said the important thing is that Wang was home…

“We work on behalf of the families,” Bergman said. While governments have a “complex set of interests with any foreign government, we have a singular one: Bring the person home. While we understand the ‘bigger picture,’ that means that we often need to ‘cook’ an arrangement on our own, and introduce it to the government only when we feel it is set, otherwise we allow spoilers … who don’t want a deal, to spoil.”

Are there special resources with which Bill Richardson might sweeten a dish for a deal? It must be noted, the day before Jeffery Epstein’s sudden death in jail, this was breaking: FOX News (Aug. 9) – Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking victim named Bill Richardson, George Mitchell in newly released documents

Back to the Al Monitor story…

“Following the Wang-Soleimani exchange, … Gov. Richardson sat with Foreign Minster Zarif in Doha, closing the loop on the latest exchange and discussing further humanitarian exchanges,” Bergman said. “We are working on behalf of and at the request of Michael White’s family as well as Bob Levinson’s family. Naturally, those two cases were discussed in our meeting with FM Zarif. The discussion was productive. There is a lot of heavy lifting to do, but we are hopeful.”

The Bob Levinson case is of particular interest, in as much as Levinson, when Special Agent of the FBI, had made Semion Mogilevich a prime target of investigation. From a 1999 BBC Panorama report (Vimeo) – Bob Levinson on Semion Mogilevich

Mogilevich in turn is said by Trump/Russia collusion devotees to be the hidden hand: Trump/Russia

WMRApril 16-17, 2009 — UPDATE 1X. Obama mulling disclosure of CIA torture documents while his terrorism adviser was involved with the torture policy

…Brennan happens to head up one of two companies identified in the perusal of Obama’s passport file. Brennan is then considered by Obama for National Intelligence or CIA director but Brennan withdraws over his involvement in the Bush administration’s torture policy. Then, Obama appoints Brennan deputy national security adviser holding the counter-terrorism portfolio. Brennan then leans on Obama to withhold significant portions of the Justice Department memos on the very policy Brennan helped to create and carry out.

Might have Brennan’s employee at State discovered something of interest in Obama’s passport file that would give Brennan effective veto authority over Obama on decisions affecting the CIA? Of course, blackmail has never been a tactic found in the CIA’s ample bag of dirty tricks…

Durham was in the thick of that scandal as well (the torture part of it)…

Jared Kushner: President Trump Is Defending Jewish Students

With Wednesday’s executive order, the president takes crucial action to support and defend Jewish students in the United States. For the first time, a president is making clear that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act’s prohibition against discrimination based on race, color or national origin covers discrimination against Jews…

Who would object to that? (other than a bonafide anti-Semite). But wait for ‘the rest of the story’…

This new order adopts as its definition of anti-Semitism the language put forth in 2016 by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, while also accounting for other forms of anti-Semitism.

For example, the alliance defines “the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity,” and those who deny “the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a state of Israel is a racist endeavor” or those who compare “contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” as examples of anti-Semitism.

The Remembrance Alliance definition makes clear what our administration has stated publicly and on the record: Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism. The inclusion of this language with contemporary examples gives critical guidance to agencies enforcing Title VI provisions.

Some universities were already adopting the policy…

Washington PostThe Afghanistan Papers – A secret history of the war

Overwhelmed by opium – The U.S. war on drugs in Afghanistan has imploded at nearly every turn

In July 2000, when the Taliban controlled most of the country, its reclusive one-eyed leader, Mullah Mohammad Omar, declared that opium was un-Islamic and imposed a ban on growing poppies.

Much to the surprise of the rest of the world, the ban worked. Afraid to cross the Taliban, Afghan farmers immediately ceased planting poppies. The United Nations estimated that poppy cultivation plunged by 90 percent from 2000 to 2001…

The Taliban had hoped the 2000 opium ban would win favor in Washington and entice the United States to provide humanitarian aid. But those hopes collapsed when al-Qaeda — which had been given sanctuary by the Taliban — launched the 9/11 attacks.

As soon as the U.S. military invaded and toppled the Taliban in 2001, Afghan farmers resumed sowing their poppy seeds…

President Bush asked the United Nations and NATO allies to tackle the problems of opium production and trafficking. Britain agreed to take charge but got off to a disastrous start, according to the interviews.

In the spring of 2002, British officials floated an irresistible offer. They agreed to pay Afghan poppy farmers $700 an acre — a fortune in the impoverished, war-ravaged country — to destroy their crops.

Word of the $30 million program ignited a poppy-growing frenzy. Farmers planted as many poppies as they could, offering part of their yield to the British while selling the rest on the open market. Others harvested the opium sap right before destroying their plants and got paid anyway.

In a Lessons Learned interview, Anthony Fitzherbert, a British agricultural expert, called the cash-for-poppies program “an appalling piece of complete raw naivete,” saying that the people in charge had “no knowledge of nuances and [I] don’t know they really cared.”

End quote. Lessons Learned: we are to believe that the British of Opium Wars infamy (a brief history by Lam Woon-Kwong in SCMP) were completely naive in such matters, that they allowed all of that cash to slip through their fingers while the humble Afghan poppy farmers made off with it plus the incalculable proceeds from their harvest, leaving the Brits and Americans without any cut whatsoever. Don’t count on the WaPo to get to the bottom of the mechanics of this trade, but we’ll guess that the cash on offer was used for money laundering.

KCNA WatchRabid Dog Must Be Beaten to Death: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) — A rabid dog in the U.S. has another fit of spasm, being greedy for power. Baiden bereft of elementary appearance as a human being, much less a politician, again reeled off a string of rubbish against the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK. A crow is never whiter for often washing. Baiden, still going reckless, not coming to his senses though he was censured and rejected by all people, must be a rabid dog only keen on getting at others’ throats. Such rabid dogs are second to none in their craftiness in seeking their own interests. A typical example is in 2011 when he, as the then vice-president, categorically rejected the preparations being pushed forward in the U.S. to kill Osama Bin Laden. He reportedly called for reconsidering the operation, because in case the operation goes futile, Obama will not be able to come to power and he will also have to say goodbye to his comfortable life in the White House. Such a profiteer who ran for the two failed presidential elections has now gone zealous in another presidential election campaign, wandering about like a starving field dog. He even forgot the name of Obama, whom he had served, and called him his senior, a sign of the final stage of dementia. It seems time has come for him to depart his life. No wonder, even the Americans call him “1% Baiden” with low I.Q., “mad Baiden”, and “Baiden not awakened from a sleep”. Such a guy had the temerity to dare slander the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK. It was the last-ditch efforts of the rabid dog expediting his death. Baiden, listen carefully. Anyone who dare slanders the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, can never spare the DPRK’s merciless punishment whoever and wherever. And he will be made to see even in a grave what horrible consequences will be brought about by his thoughtless utterances. Rabid dogs like Baiden can hurt lots of people if they are allowed to run about. They must be beaten to death with a stick, before it is too late. Doing so will be beneficial for the U.S. also. -0-

@realDonaldTrumpI was elected on getting out of these ridiculous endless wars, where our great Military functions as a policing operation to the benefit of people who don’t even like the USA. The two most unhappy countries at this move are Russia & China, because they love seeing us bogged…..….down, watching over a quagmire, & spending big dollars to do so. When I took over, our Military was totally depleted. Now it is stronger than ever before. The endless and ridiculous wars are ENDING! We will be focused on the big picture, knowing we can always go back & BLAST!

Wayne Madsen ReportOctober 11-13, 2019 — Trump envoy to Turkey is a long-known Mossad asset

David Satterfield, Donald Trump’s ambassador to Turkey — an individual who was instrumental in giving Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a U.S. greenlight to invade the Syrian Kurdish autonomous region within north and west Syria — is a longtime Israeli intelligence asset within the U.S. State Department.

In September 2017, Satterfield was pulled out of retirement to become the acting assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs. On August 28 of this year, Satterfield took up his position in Ankara.

News reports that suggest Trump failed to inform the Israeli government of his plan to withdraw U.S. troops from a security buffer zone on the Syrian-Turkish border, thus giving Erdogan an unobstructed opportunity to begin ethnic cleansing of the Syrian Kurds to make way for Sunni Muslim Syrian refugees to re-settle in the region, are belied by the fact that Satterfield has maintained a direct intelligence pipeline to the Israelis for decades.

In 2005, the FBI and Justice Department prosecutors identified Satterfield as “USGO-2,” or “U.S. government official 2,” in the indictment of two American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) employees, Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, for receiving highly classified code word intelligence documents from Defense Intelligence Agency official Larry Franklin. …

Most of Satterfield’s career within the State Department has been to serve as Mossad’s eyes and ears within the highest echelons of the U.S. diplomatic corps. The Franklin/AIPAC affair was not the only time Satterfield was linked to Israeli espionage operations.

Satterfield worked for Martin Indyk in the Clinton State Department and National Security Council. Satterfield also liaised during his stint at State with Bill Clinton’s Middle East envoy Dennis Ross who later headed the pro-Likud Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). After Satterfield was identified in the indictment of Rosen, Weissman, and Franklin as USGO2, both Indyk and Ross came to Satterfield’s defense.

On September 21, 2000, Indyk, the then-US ambassador to Israel, had his security clearance suspended by the State Department. Indyk was investigated for violating State Department security regulations. At a September 25 State Department press conference, Richard Boucher, the department spokesman, said, “We have not suspended security clearances for an Ambassador previously, prior to this. This is the first time this has happened to an Ambassador.” Indyk was under investigation for passing sensitive classified intelligence to the Israelis. …

On August 4, 2005, WMR reported on the contents of the indictments of Franklin, Rosen, and Weissman: “In January 2002, Rosen met with another U.S. government official (USGO-2) [Satterfield] and received classified information that was sent to other AIPAC employees in a memo. During the next several months, Rosen continued to discuss classified information with USGO-2 [Satterfield] and an unnamed Pentagon official, the latter referring Rosen to Franklin. Rosen then established a liaison with Franklin. Rosen told Franklin at a meeting in February 2003 that he would try and secure a job at the National Security Council for Franklin so that he would be ‘by the elbow of the President.’ In March 2003, Rosen discussed a classified internal policy document concerning Iran with a ‘senior fellow of a Washington, DC think tank.’ Sources familiar with the investigation have reported the think tank is the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). In June 2003, Franklin told Weissman that he had a friend in the CIA from whom he could obtain a copy of the classified Iran policy document.”

Our August 4, 2005 report continued: “In July 2004, Franklin began cooperating with the FBI and passed classified CIA information to Weismann as part of the continuing FBI investigation. Some of the information concerned a ‘foreign government’s covert actions in Iraq.’ In August 2004, Rosen told Israeli agents that he and Weissman were under FBI investigation over the leaks from the Pentagon. It is important to note that the indictment states that the intelligence operation against the United States was a ‘conspiracy’ involving U.S. government officials, AIPAC officials, and foreign agents (Israelis) (there is also the possibility that Turkish agents were included in this category). The fact that Satterfield’s involvement in the Israeli espionage operation may have also involved Turkish intelligence agents makes his posting to Ankara as the U.S. ambassador all that more troubling].”The indictment also states that Iran’s nuclear program was a primary focus of the espionage conspiracy. …
