To the question of who is funding, training, and ideologically “educating” the arsonists and vandals, the “red shirts” and “brown shirts” as it were (to invoke the street battles of Weimar Germany), these reports point to opposing factions operating independently. This is not to rule out however that they can be the unwitting tools of an overarching puppet-master…

Wayne Madsen Report – June 3-4, 2020 — Evidence mounts of police provocateurs triggering rioting
New York, Washington, Boston, Portland, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles
There is mounting video, photographic, and eyewitness evidence that police, supposedly deployed to protect people and property, are engaging with other police or far-right extremists to commit acts of vandalism on businesses, automobiles, and other private and public property. It is also very apparent that some police officers are physically assaulting members of the press in a coordinated nationwide effort.
In Boston, Northeastern University campus police officers were videotaped with a partially-covered truckload of bricks. They were videotaped in an alleyway at campus police headquarters at 716 Columbus Avenue. [jpg] There were other reports from around the country of pallets of bricks showing up mysteriously, including in Los Angeles, where earthquake construction codes do not permit the use of bricks except for decorative purposes.
In Hollywood and Koreatown in Los Angeles, pallets of bricks have been showing up in guarded lots in strategic locations with easy access to downtown Los Angeles, Century City, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Westwood, and Larchmont. [jpg]
It is not only bricks that are appearing in mass quantities in cities, but also caches of bats, hammers, and various types of projectiles. It should be pointed out that a large majority of police officers are not involved in the trafficking of bricks and other implements of destruction. In fact, Columbus, Ohio police detectives stopped a bus at Broad and 3rd that was filled with bats, rocks, axes, and even meat cleavers. [jpg] The police believed the bus was distributing the material to rioters, but charges remain pending….
In Philadelphia, police stood by hi-fiving and taking selfies with white vigilantes marching through the streets of Fishtown, a predominantly white neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia, two hours after the 6 pm curfew imposed by the mayor. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the vigilantes, who were armed with baseball bats, golf clubs, and other implements, [jpg] spat on passersby, the street toughs telling them they had Covid-19. The vigilantes also screamed racist and homophobic slurs at certain individuals walking or riding their bikes along Frankford and Girard Avenues. A reporter for WHYY-TV, Channel 12, was beaten and bloodied by the vigilantes for filming their street procession.
The outside provocateurs in Iowa are very well organized. As with the bus in Columbus, the Des Moines Register is reporting that “strategically park vehicles loaded with riot supplies, including backpacks full of rocks or bottles and masks,” have been found near demonstration venues in Des Moines, Waterloo, Coralville, and Sioux City. Unknown terrorists shot and killed two peaceful protesters in Davenport, where a police officer was also shot in an ambush on his vehicle. Davenport Mayor Mike Matson said those responsible for the acts were purposely intending to create chaos and inflict damage. While a far-right neo-Nazi group called Identity Evropa was flagged for running a fake Antifa account on Twitter, another suspicious group, “Des Moines Antifa,” began sending out schedules for local protests….
In Oakland, California, the acting police chief provided details of the organized looters from outside of the city that descended on Oakland to loot. Videos taken of the looting showed the thieves were primarily white. Acting Chief Susan Manheimer told KGO-TV that “Many were coming actually from, surprisingly, the Stockton, Merced, southern area and coming in very organized fashion … 15, 20, 30 cars at a time, hitting as you’ve seen different shopping malls, different areas.” Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf said the targeted stores were in East Oakland and Fruitvale. Stockton and Merced are noteworthy because a number of white supremacist and other far-right groups operate from the two cities.
There is a strong possibility that looting, arson, and vandalism are being coordinated between some police officers and members of the National Guard and outside white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups. In 2006, the FBI issued an intelligence assessment titled, “White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement.” The report warned that white supremacist groups had a primary interest in “infiltrating law enforcement communities or recruiting law enforcement personnel.” The far-right groups refer to their members embedded in the police and military as “ghost skins,” which is defined as cops and military personnel who “avoid overt displays of their beliefs to blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes.”
The Department of Defense has discovered that white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups have been encouraging young men and women to enlist in the military in order to gain access to weapons and military training, as well as to recruit other military personnel to their extremist causes prior to returning to civilian life. Far-right extremists are particularly strong in numbers at Fort Lewis, Fort Bragg, Fort Hood, Fort Stewart, and Camp Pendleton.
Some of the “false flag” operations designed to disrupt legitimate protests and appear linked to the police or other government entities bears a disturbing resemblance to the 1960s program of the FBI called COINTELPRO or “Counter-Intelligence Program.” The FBI used the program to infiltrate the Black Panthers and anti-war student movements.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution – Trump’s ‘Operation Warp Speed’ aims to develop 300M vaccine doses by year’s end
ThereAreNoSunglasses (Fierce Pharma) – Why Manufacture 2 Billion Doses of A “Potential” Vaccine?
Despite Moderna’s cheery press release this morning,the clinical trial results for its groundbreaking COVID vaccine could not be much worse. The vaccine,developed and championed by Anthony Fauci and financed by Bill Gates,used an experimental MRNA technology that the two men hoped would allow rapid deployment to meet President Trump’s ambitions “warp speed” time line.Dr Fauci was so confident of his shot’s safety that he waved ferret and primate studies ( Moderna suspiciously reported no health data from its mouse studies)That appears to have been a mistake. Three of the 15 human guinea pigs in the high dose cohort (250 mcg)suffered a “serious adverse event” within 43 days of receiving Moderna’s jab. Moderna did not release its clinical trial study or raw data,but its press release,which was freighted with inconsistencies acknowledged that three volunteers developed Grade 3 systemic events defined by the FDA as “Preventing daily activity and requiring medical intervention. “ Moderna allowed only exceptionally healthy volunteers to participate in the study. A vaccine with those reaction rates could cause grave injuries in 1.5 billion humans if administered to “every person on earth”. That is the threshold that Gates has established for ending the global lockdown.Moderna did not explain why it reported positive antibody tests for only eight participants.These outcomes are particularly disappointing because the most hazardous hurdle for the inoculation is still ahead;challenging participants with wild COVID infection. Past attempts at developing COVID vaccines have always faltered at this stage as both humans and animals achieved robust antibody response then sickened and died when exposed to the wild virus. Moderna’s press announcement heralded “Positive Interim Phase 1 findings”. I have forwarded that claim to my colleagues in securities law;FTC rules restrict the amount of lipstick public companies may slather on bad donkeys.

Caracas and Miami
Chalk up another debacle to the Trump administration. An attempt to collect on a Trump administration $15 million bounty on the head of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro turned into a failed attempt by a group of Venezuelan exiles and ex-U.S. Green Beret soldiers to kidnap Maduro and transport him to the United States to stand trial on flimsy U.S. charges of drug trafficking. Several of the plotters were captured by Venezuelan security forces on May 4 near the port city of La Guaira and at least two former U.S. Green Berets personnel, Luke Denman and Airan Berry, are being held in custody in Venezuela and are being charged with terrorism.
The operation was officially code-named “Operation Gideon,” but its failure has earned it the name “the Bay of Piglets,” a reference to the Central Intelligence Agency’s 1961 invasion of Cuba’s Bay of Pigs by Florida-based Cuban exiles who hoped to toppled Fidel Castro’s government. In addition to Denman and Berry, the invasion of Venezuela involved some 60 other mercenaries. It is not yet known if other Americans were involved in the invasion but one of those identified as part of the invasion team is Venezuelan National Guard Captain Antonio Sequea, who participated in a Caracas barracks revolt against Maduro in 2019.
Denman and Berry worked for a Florida company called Silvercorp USA, owned by another former Green Beret, Jordan Goudreau, a native of Canada, a former member of the Canadian armed forces, and who is now a U.S. citizen. Silvercorp, which is based at 4150 Dow Road, Suite 104 in Melbourne, Florida and was incorporated in 2018, has close links to the Trump Organization’s security chief Keith Schiller. In 2013, Goudreau was investigated for defrauding the U.S. Army of $62,000 in housing allowances. No criminal charges were filed.
Venezuelan Attorney General Tarek William Saab said 114 people have been arrested for their involvement in Operation Gideon and that there are arrest warrants out for another 92. Goudreau said his invasion force totaled 54 other personnel, including Denman and Berry.
The plot to kidnap Maduro also involved Venezuelan opposition leader and self-appointed “interim president” Juan Guaido. Goudreau revealed that he was working directly with Guaido in the plot to kidnap Maduro. Operation Gideon also involved Venezuelan armed forces deserters in Colombia who were encamped along the Venezuelan border waiting for instructions to covertly cross into Venezuelan territory in support of the operation against Maduro.
Schiller reportedly met Lester Toledo, an adviser to Guaido, at a Trump fundraising meeting at the University Club in Washington, DC in March 2019. Two months later, in May 2019, Schiller and Goudreau met with Guaido’s agents in Miami. Later, at the JW Marriott Hotel in Bogota, Colombia, the preferred meeting place for Venezuelan and Colombian drug traffickers and officials of the government of Colombian right-wing President Ivan Duque, Toledo introduced Goudreau to Cliver Alcalá, a retired Venezuelan major general and a leader of Venezuelan armed forces deserters in Colombia. Later arrested by U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents in Colombia, Alcalá is now in federal detention in New York awaiting trial on charges involving the smuggling of 250 metric tons of cocaine into the United States annually. The question looms large of why an intermediary for Trump would have met with a person charged with massive drug smuggling into the United States?
Schiller has his own security firm, KS Global Group, LLC, which is incorporated in Delaware and has a contract from the Republican National Committee to provide security at the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte. Schiller has been involved with a number of shady partners involved in dubious foreign business operations. They include Rudolph Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer; convicted former New York Police commissioner Bernard Kerik; former FBI agent Gary Uher, who has had a relationship with Trump’s mobbed-up ex-con real estate associate, Felix Sater and was last known to be employed by Oshirak Group International of McLean, Virginia in the CIA’s backyard.
Venezuelan Constituent Assembly President Diosdado Cabello, the nation’s second most important official, said Venezuelan forces captured among the plotters Josnars Adolfo Baduel, alias Simón, the son of pro-opposition former General Raul Baduel. Baduel’s son is heard on a videotape saying that Denman and Barry work as “security advisers” to the President of the United States. When asked ion the tape to whom he is referring as President of the United States, he replies, “Donald Trump.”
Speaking on Venezuelan TV, Denman revealed that he was hired by Goudreau who was, in turn, “commanded by Trump.” Denman also revealed that he and Berry flew to Colombia in January to prepare for Gideon……..
