On this podcast series, and in many other discussions and debates in think tanks and in the media, we often speculate about the likelihood of a kinetic conflict with China – is it inevitable? Or is it highly unlikely? But today we want to consider how a war would actually start, however grim this topic may be. It's often hard to visualize what the trip wires would be. Admiral James Stavridis co-authored an entire book with Elliot Ackerman on the subject. It's called “2034: A Novel of the Next World War”. Admiral James Stavridis is a retired four-star U.S. naval officer. He is currently Vice Chair, Global Affairs and Managing Director of The Carlyle Group, a global investment firm. He is also 12th Chair of Rockefeller Foundation board. Previously he served for five years as the 12th Dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. He led the NATO Alliance in global operations from 2009 to 2013 as 16th Supreme Allied Commander with responsibility for Afghanistan, Libya, the Balkans, Syria, counter piracy, and cyber security. He also served as Commander of U.S. Southern Command, with responsibility for all military operations in Latin America from 2006-2009. He earned more than 50 medals, including 28 from foreign nations in his 37-year military career. Earlier in his military career he commanded the top ship in the Atlantic Fleet, winning the Battenberg Cup, as well as a squadron of destroyers and a carrier strike group – all in combat. Admiral Stavridis earned a PhD in international relations and has published eleven books and thousands of articles in leading journals around the world. His 2012 TED talk on global security has over one million views. Admiral Stavridis is a contributing editor for TIME Magazine and Chief International Security Analyst for NBC News.

Interviews with pioneers in business and social impact - Business Fights Poverty Spotlight

What does climate resilience mean and why does it need to be a vital part of business and community activities as we get ready for the full impacts of climate change? Meet Peter Hall. He is the Vice President & Global Director for Climate Resilience & ESG at Woodplc. Peter is a specialist in all things resilience. Whether building climate resilient cities; homes; and infrastructure; or investing in climate resilience and developing frameworks to help navigate resilient actions. During our conversation Peter will reveal why we need to join his mission to shift infrastructure to be climate resilient whilst creating opportunities and positive impacts for the people that rely on their services. Peter shares his insiders' views on the COP process and how COP 26 is finally starting to really talk about people, adaptation and resilience. Though still not enough in Peter's opinion. Peter talks about how business can practically put people at the heart of their climate actions and begin to ensure their value chains are ready and resilient to climate change. And how he is already planning for COP 27 which will be a whole of Africa conference with a greater focus on people and resilience – listen in to hear more. He warns us - given the speed of change we are going to be experiencing, we need to be prepared to re-learn everything we thought we knew. Peter is on the UNFCCC Race to Resilience Climate Champions team. He is on the Advisory Board for the Resilience First Organization; a member of the World Economic Forum Global Future Council (GFC) and the Ambassador for Climate Resilience at the Stimpson Center along with supporting the Wood Microsoft and International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI) partnerships.

UBM Unleavened Bread Ministries

Curses of Modern Medicine (2)  Beast Plans Delayed by Man-child and Trump (Audio)   David Eells - 12/19/21 I want to make a caveat to the things that we are about to discuss about what the DS leftist communists are planning to do to control every last human on earth. The Man-child and President Trump are going to delay the plans of this Beast for the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation so that the Gospel can go forth in the Man-child ministries and a great revival will take place to draw God's elect out of apostasy. So keep this in mind as we share the following. Also keep in mind that we have been given authority over these beast plans. What we bind on earth is bound in heaven. Jesus has given us authority over all the power of the enemies as regards the Kingdom of God if we pray and believe we have received. As regarding our prayers for those still in the world but under our authority we can bind and loose or forbid and permit. Reap What You Sow? Doctors Dropping Dead Like Flies Since Mid-October  The COVID Blog.com  November 17, 2021   The American Medical Association reported that 96% of U.S. doctors were vaccinated in June. Even with a 20-point error margin, accounting for saline/placebo shots and exemptions, a vast majority of doctors have received the shots. It's only fair since doctors peddle the injections to their unwitting, credulous fanatics who worship the white coats. Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidences. We all know that. But you can literally search keywords like “died suddenly” and “died unexpectedly” in Yahoo, Bing, DuckDuckGo, etc. and find endless stories like the following. Booster shots commenced on September 22. That could also be a coincidence. But all of the following doctors died on October 13 or later. We could literally include 100 doctors in this story if time permitted. All of these happened in the last four weeks. The youngest is 32. The oldest is 59... The powers-that-be know that vaccine mandates for healthcare workers lead to mass shortages of qualified personnel due to injuries and deaths. Many healthcare workers are quitting to avoid the injections, leading to even more shortages. There's also the influx of vaxx-injured patients. Even NPR admitted that hospitals are overrun with seriously ill people who do not have COVID-19. It's shaping up to be a situation with millions of sick people and nobody to help them (not that doctors are helping vaxx-injured people now anyway). Healthcare will mostly be digitized by 2030. Transhumans and “GMO humans” will be the majority in Western countries. Birthrates will grind to a halt due to mass infertility, a common trait for GMO-humans. Medicine will be impersonal and mechanical. Direct human interaction will be minimal or nonexistent. Military personnel and equipment will inevitably start filling healthcare positions in civilian settings, likely sooner rather than later. Critical thinkers should have already been preparing for this. Avoid doctors at all costs. Keep your weight down and Vitamin D and C levels up. Exercise your heart, get adequate sleep and even meditate 2-3 times a week. Avoiding doctors is a matter of life and death in 2021. Death by doctor is disgraceful. It's best to die with dignity when the time comes. Stay vigilant and protect your friends and loved ones. Official Data shows many more people have died due to the Covid-19 Vaccines in 8 months than people who have died of Covid-19 in 18 months By DAILY EXPOSE on AUGUST 21, 2021   There can no longer be any doubt that the Covid-19 injections are more deadly than the alleged Covid-19 virus itself thanks to a raft of official Public Health and Government data available, (Coming out of Scotland and England) confirming more people have died due to the Covid-19 vaccine in 8 months than people who have died of Covid-19 in 18 months.  Study: 5G Exposure is a “Significant Factor” in Higher Covid Cases and Deaths  (Natural News) The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) has published a new study warning about the dangers of 5G technology, including how it directly contributes to the symptoms commonly associated with the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19). For the study, Beverly Rubik and Robert R. Brown referenced an earlier paper published in May 2020 that showed a “statistically significant correlation between the intensity of radio-frequency radiation and mortality from SARS-CoV-2 in 31 countries throughout the world.” They also highlighted a U.S.-based study showing that areas of the country with 5G infrastructure already in place and operating showed significantly higher rates of serious illness and death attributed to covid, all independent of population density, air quality and latitude. Only 5G matched three different causal analyses used in the study. Population density, air quality and latitude, meanwhile, only matched one or two analyses each, meaning 5G was the verified culprit in negative covid outcomes. Rubik and Brown used these findings to draw a comparison between the bioeffects of WCR (wireless communications radiation), including 5G, and the symptoms commonly attributed to covid, which they then used to create a list of overlapping physical effects. “Symptoms from both WCR and COVID-19 included blood changes such as short-term rouleaux (blood ‘clumping'), and long-term reduced hemoglobin (in severe COVID-19 cases); oxidative stress and injury in tissues and organs; immune system disruption, including suppression of T-lymphocytes and elevated inflammatory biomarkers; increased intracellular calcium, which facilitates virus entry and replication; and arrhythmias (heart beat irregularities),” reported LifeSiteNews. Wireless radiation exposure reduces levels of “master antioxidant” glutathione One particularly disturbing finding in Rubik and Brown's study is the observable decrease in glutathione, the body's “master antioxidant,” upon exposure to 5G and really all wireless radiation. (RELATED: Donald Trump funneled billions of American taxpayer dollars into subsidizing a more rapid 5G rollout.) At least two other study have found that WCR exposure correlates to greatly diminished glutathione levels, the symptoms of which just so happen to match those of the Fauci Flu. Rubik and Brown made specific notes in their paper about how “the finding of low glutathione levels” in Chinese Virus patients “further supports oxidative stress as a component” of covid infection. WCR is already widely recognized as a “physiological stressor” that causes detrimental health effects ranging from increased cancer risk and DNA damage to learning and memory problems. Sure, correlation does not always mean causation, but in this case it is more than probable that WCR – and particularly the early activation in 5G in Wuhan, the epicenter of the plandemic – is directly contributing to the spread and severity of the Wuhan Virus. “The evidence for the connection between COVID and 5G, as well as other forms of wireless communications radiation (WCR), consisted of two main findings: the statistical correlation between COVID-19 symptoms / mortality and area-specific WCR intensity, including that of 5G; and the overlap between WCR effects on the body, and COVID-19 symptoms,” LifeSiteNews further reported. One reader commented that 5G radiation apparently “stirs up” the graphene hydroxide found in the injections, causing bleeding and clotting. “Graphene hydroxide is a metal and is affected by 5G,” this person added. “Graphene hydroxide never leaves your system and accumulates with every shot or booster.” Another wrote that while taking NAC (N-Acetyl L-Cysteine) is powerful, as mentioned in the article, vitamin D plays a much bigger role in protecting against covid and other respiratory ailments. “If you are already low in vitamin D as a great many are, as soon as your body is attacked by a virus, those reserves get depleted further which then puts you in a very dangerous area,” this person added.

Technical Specifications and Implementation Guidance - Aug. 27, 2021.”   These certificates are block chain based, so it's going to be connected to blockchain and cryptocurrency (of some kind). This has all been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation.       Many desperate people have been trying to obtain fake vaccination status cards and some have been arrested and fined for this. But, the blockchain certificates will eliminate all forgeries because there will be a QR code that everyone must have via an injection or a transdermal Quantum Dot patch. This will be tied to your block chain information.   You won't be able to just tell them that you are vaccinated because they will just look you up in their database. So, in their ‘Mark of the Beast' system there will be no way around this.   Back in 2014 Gates filed a patent for a bio metric chip that will control birth control that can be controlled remotely which will also be tied to your biometric data including health stats, body heat and activities and will report when you are sick.   Then in March of 2020, Bill Gates filed the patent for block chain and cryptocurrency  to be tied to your vaccination status. This patent number, ironically is 06.06.06.   The V@X is an Obedience Training Platform Transcribed by Eve Brast - 12/16/21    In this Stew Peters interview with Karen Kingston she says, “Americans thought that by being vaccinated they would get their ticket back to their liberties and freedoms,  when in actuality the vaccination campaign is a gateway to an obedience platform and potentially an execution platform if people are not obedient based on their social credit scores.   In the original patent for this platform which is patent # 2021/0082583, section #0378, it talks about a plurality of electronic devices configured to create an ID and will connect to external servers including apps. The government will require citizens to download a mandatory app on their smart phones (or tablets, smart watches, etc. and also smart glasses (which will also be designed for the VR Metaverse that Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg are bringing online soon.) This will help the government with logistics of the vaccination procedures.   The app and/or smart device is configured to inform on the users location at all times and to communicate with adjacent smart devices (via Bluetooth for example) to assess the interactions between users.   In section # 0380, it goes on to say, “The app will send a communication to the user to enhance awareness of behavioral rules during pandemics, to come and be vaccinated, to avoid certain locations which are at high risk of contagion.   This may all sound surreal, but this has already been implemented in Western Australia  with the G2G app, which is a tool that helps the police “protect the community” by conducting remote, virtual app checks on people in quarantine. When users receive the push notifications to ‘check in', they have a 5 minute window to take a selfie or photo. The app then matches the image and location with the person's registered details to ensure compliance with quarantine directives.   If they miss a check in multiple times they are prompted to give a reason and the police will determine if it's valid or not. If you consistently miss or fail to comply ‘without good reason' you may have committed an offense under the Emergency Management Act, which can result in fines of up to $50,000 and/or imprisonment.   Back to the patent, section # 0352 says, “Vaccines including Covid-19 are all compounds as disclosed in the website of The WHO and which are all incorporated herein by reference and which are optionally provided (e.g. as a kit) with software and/or provided with instructions for use targeting potential super spreaders.   Well, you may say, “I didn't get a kit or instructions… but keep in mind on December 13th of 2016, under the Obama's CARES Act section # 3024, it was passed that during an EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) and under clinical research, informed consent was waived if it is not in the best interest of a human subject to know. So, for example, if our government decided we shouldn't know we were being injected with a smart computing system device, then that would not be disclosed to us. (This is why the drug companies have gotten away with not telling people what is in their death shots.)   If we refer back to the patent in section # 0400, it details how the vaccine potency is based on 'super-spreader' or an individual's behavior. So this system is used to identify which individuals will receive which types of vaccines in relation to their potency. For example, individuals that received and or were identified as a ‘high super-spreading score by the system would be vaccinated with a more potent dose of the vaccines.   So, if you're not obedient or you are deemed and “undesirable”, you will get a more potent vaccine (or a chemical execution)...   Eph. 5:11-16, and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them; 12 for the things which are done by them in secret it is a shame even to speak of. 13 But all things when they are reproved are made manifest by the light: for everything that is made manifest is light. 14 Wherefore he saith, Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine upon thee. 15 Look therefore carefully how ye walk, not as unwise, but as wise; 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.     Watch Stew Peters 2nd follow up Interview with Karen Kingston linked here: https://rumble.com/vnsi1x-receipts-patents-expose-medical-devices-in-jab-injectable-computing-system.html     They Plan on Saturating our Whole Environment with Graphene Hydroxide    Transcribed by Eve Brast - 12/14/21   In the Stew Peters interview with Dr. Love she reported, “ Dr. Zandra Bothra found disk like nano structures described in the Phizer patents called micro beads and in the Modera patent they're called micro bubbles or spheres.   Dr. Pablo Campra mentioned he discovered Bio-sensors which are in the DARPA patent that are T-shaped micro fluidic Bio-chips.   Quantum Dots which are mentioned in the Phizer and Moderna patents are made from Graphene Oxide. This is more proof that this substance is in the mRNA injections.   Quantum Dots are used for DNA barcoding and ownership of humans. They are going to brand us using CRISPR- Cas9 technology  (This is a genome editing tool. It enables geneticists and medical researchers to edit parts of the genome by removing, adding, or altering sections of the DNA sequence. It is currently the simplest, most versatile and precise method of genetic manipulation and is therefore causing a buzz in the science world.)   The Quantum Dot patent application was granted on 6/8/21 and they've been very quiet about this and trying to hide it. This is the marker gene for Bio-imaging and Bio tracking of humans. The Quantum Dots are color based markers. They are tiny artificial atoms that are created chemically in a lab. Scientists are fusing 2 atoms together to create an artificial molecule. So they have created a new programmable matter that can be reprogrammed anytime and controlled externally from AI.   So this is like playing God and altering God's creation; creating a whole new reality.   These Quantum Dots have Luciferase in them from insect, jellyfish, and glow worm DNA which gives them the ability to glow under special lighting. These are all being transfected into human cells for tracing and bar-coding. This is cross species genomics. They are creating a new species of humans. (Transfect means: to infect (a cell) with free nucleic acid or to introduce (genetic material) by infecting a cell with free nucleic acid.)   This technology was developed at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. It was patented and owned by Yissum which is a technology transfer company of the Hebrew University and owned by Nanosys which is headquartered in Silicon Valley CA.   These 2 companies are subleasing this technology world wide. So there are 60 additional Quantum Dot patents that don't expire until 2030.   Yissum's business partners include, Google, ICL, Intel, J&J, Merck, Microsoft, Novartis, and many more. Samsung is also partnered with Nanosys.   Moderna's and Phizer's patents are both owned by Israel and both of the companies CEOs are Israeli. (So, who's your daddy, right?)    These are the patent holders who all have a vested interest in bar-coding and enslaving humanity; branding humans like cattle. This is the Israeli State, CCP, the Banking Elites, etc. that want to monitor our biometric data in order to know who is their eligible property and who isn't yet and they want everyone barcoded.   So, based on these patents, we know what they intend to use this technology for and why they (so desperately) need it in people; either by injection, masks, nasal swabs, hand sanitizers or aerial spraying. (Fauci and the NIH funded the hydrogels which are skin penetrating and can be discriminated by aerial spraying. Infowars had covered this.)   Klause Schwab said that, “The hydrogels, (which are made from Graphene Oxide and contain the mRNA cloning technology and are the entire bio-weapons system) would be in everything by the end of this year (2021).   They are literally going to saturate human beings with these hydrogels to genetically modify them for patentability.   So, even if people don't get vaccinated, they will attempt get it inside every human being on the planet, one way or another. (Our immunity is accomplished by Jesus who delivered us from the curse. Gal 3:13-14  Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:  14  that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.  Learn this from God's Vaccine Book. Also 7 simple steps to be immune from plagues/pestilences man made or otherwise.)   Technocrats Will Reduce Every Human to a QR Code By Leo Homann, LeoHomann.com - September 11, 2021     The rising biomedical security state is determined to use Covid to reduce every human being to a QR code. Without fanfare and with hardly a peep from the corporate-owned establishment media, the United Nations World Health Organization, also known as the WHO, issued a document last week that should set off alarm bells for lovers of freedom and liberty everywhere. Technocrats are determined to reduce every human to a QR code The document provides “guidance” for every nation in the world on how to go about implementing digital health passports, which is something Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab and other power elites have said since last year would be absolutely essential to conquering the Covid pandemic. The title alone of the document appears designed to repel the average reader and lull them to sleep: Digital documentation of COVID-19 certificates: vaccination status: technical specifications and implementation guidance. The WHO is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, “to produce a high-value standard for international adoption and technical information exchange.” In layman's terms, we're talking about a digital health passport. These passports, as we've covered in depth in previous articles, are meant for no other purpose than to track and trace the movement of people in real time, scooping up data all along the way. In other words, one of the most basic rights in any free society, the freedom of movement, will be shattered if your city, state or nation follows the advice of the WHO, the World Economic Forum, or any of its tech partners such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, Facebook, etc. The WHO paper states its purpose is to provide standards and specs for the governments and contractors seeking to impose digital vaccine passports on global populations. “This is a guidance document for countries and implementing partners on the technical requirements for developing digital information systems for issuing standards-based interoperable digital certificates for COVID-19 vaccination status, and considerations for implementation of such systems, for the purposes of continuity of care, and proof of vaccination.” A condensed version of the 99-page document, with helpful graphics, some of which are reproduced below, can be found here: https://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/344456/WHO-2019-nCoV-Digital_certificates-vaccination-technical_briefing-2021.1-eng.pdf As can be seen in the above screenshot, this technology will be used to track not only the movement of people but to monitor their need for “continuity of care,” which foretells WHO's desire for continuous vaccines and “booster” shots in perpetuity for every man, woman and child. The system is even designed [see the link] for maximum printability so that holders of vaccine passports “without a smartphone can receive a printed QR code.”  (Fear not, only believe, for God will drain the Church swamp.  It is better to not be a part of it now. Forget religion turn to the Word and true original covenant.) Human QR codes The document was issued August 27 with the intended audience being WHO-member states and technology contractors with a stake in the digital passport business, where tech companies stand to reap billions in profits over the next several years installing this new surveillance grid. This document talks about the need to implement digital vaccine passports throughout the whole of society and how to do it. “Vaccination records can also provide proof of vaccination status for purposes not related to health care,” the WHO points out on page 14. A digital vaccine certificate is defined in the document as “a digitally signed representation of data content that describes a vaccination event.” The Coming Fourth Industrial Revolution If governments and their tech partners are successful in implementing this system and getting the public conditioned to accept it, the next step, already envisioned by the World Economic Forum, is to move the QR code from the smartphone to the person's actual body. Klaus Schwab, director and founder of the WEF, which hosts the world's top political and economic power players each year in Davos, Switzerland, said in 2016 while promoting his book on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, that this global revolution will “lead to a fusion of our physical, biological and digital identities.” Schwab is fond of saying that Covid and the so-called “Great Reset” announced by the World Economic Forum in July of last year, will force people to engage with machines in new and different ways. He wasn't kidding. Listen to Schwab in the video clip predicting that in this process of fusion, people will, by 2026, have a chip implanted in their skin or brain that will connect them to the Internet. Schwab's book, published in late 2016, stated that the time was near when developments in technology would not only “change the way we live and work” but would be “even challenging ideas about what it means to be human.” Of course there is a segment of the population, worldwide, who Schwab, Gates, Fauci, Rockefeller, Soros, Buffet and the rest of the elites know will never get on board with their plan for changing the very idea of what it means to be human. That's where the rollout of the controversial mRNA Covid shots has been extremely valuable to the strategists behind the new world order. They are getting a very good feel for exactly who they will need to either re-educate or, if that's not possible, eliminate from society altogether. That's where the digital certificates/passports come in. They are by their very nature coercive, an obvious, in-your-face assault on basic human freedom. Anyone who accepts such an intrusion on their movement and privacy is clearly already primed for the ultimate “marking” of the new world order, which will be to accept the QR code marked right onto their skin using micro-needles and invisible dye. Gates has already funded a project at MIT to do just that. The WHO document also mentions that once established these digital certificates could be loaded with data that includes not just Covid vaccine status but all vaccines and health records. The ultimate goal is to have a global identification system that is mated to one's vaccine status, a dream that the Gates and Rockefeller foundations have been striving to fulfill since their launch of the ID2020 initiative in 2019, before Covid was a thing. In fact, the slippery slope toward making every man, woman and child a walking QR Code is already being traversed worldwide. Scannable QR Codes allowing employers, businesses and other organizations to see your vaccination status and decide whether to allow you onto their property are already making their way into several states and cities across the U.S., and throughout Europe. The ‘show your papers' society is emerging before our eyes and very few Americans seem concerned, or even aware. A company called MyIR Mobile is working in several states, providing an app that allows the user “to prove your Covid status for travel, school, work, or any other situation where proof is required. Simply register your account and open the QR Code in your app to allow others to scan your proof of vaccination.” Coming soon human QR codes In true dystopian fashion, this company trumpets its “show your papers” app as if it was a great achievement, like how did humanity ever get by for thousands of years without having a scannable QR code phone app that allows them to be tracked and traced, to have their mere presence at a public location questioned and challenged, as if they were someone's property? A dog on a leash has more freedom than this, but still you're encouraged to “register now.” It's “simple and secure.” This is classic case of a technology company committing digital terrorism against humanity. There is no other way around it. This is the digital form of Nazi Germany's “show your papers” society, announcing itself as having arrived in the Home of the Brave and Land of the Free. It's no longer hiding. It's right in our faces. The premise behind MyIR Mobile is clear: Either get vaccinated or your life is over. It is just one of dozens of such tech companies seeking to cash in on the fear-crazed “new normal” that globalist elites have created in the wake of the Covid pandemic. They are using the power of technology for the utmost evil, to literally cancel you from all of society. This is the global technocrats getting their foot in the door of a place they have no business being – your personal healthcare – and claiming they have the right to convince every business to discriminate against you based on your so-called “vaccine status,” which has nothing at all to do with whether or not you are healthy or a danger to others. The CDC and lying Fauci have already admitted that these vaccines do not stop you from getting Covid, do not stop you from spreading Covid, and only protect you against “serious illness” for three to five months. Within five months your protection starts to seriously wane and you will need another “booster” to retain your coveted status as “fully vaccinated.” Those who can't prove they have that status will not only be discriminated against but the government will incentivize businesses to discriminate against them. The Civil Rights movement was fought and won over this same type of legalized discrimination. Wars have been fought over far less. Globalist elites love to play the Hegelian dialectic: A crisis [real or manufactured] provokes a reaction from the people, who demand the government take action to protect them, and then the horrifying solution is brought forth. And it's not going to stop with digital vaccine passports. This is merely the first stop on the way to creating a digital ID that will be required of all “global citizens” in order to be allowed to buy or sell. It will start with your vaccination status and eventually include data points allowing the government and corporate world to know everything about you in a single glance. Some will recognize these societal changes as tyranny and balk at the transformation. That's why it's critical to get all of the children into the system. Fauci and company are frantically pushing the vaccine for children 11 and under. They already have it for those 12 to 18. They want this so young people will grow up thinking it's normal to be asked to prove one's vaccination status before being allowed to enter public venues and businesses. It has nothing to do with health and everything to do with putting in place the structures of a new surveillance state where every human being will be tracked and traced 24/7 in real time. Do as you are told, or prepare to hibernate inside your home for the rest of your life, unable to work, shop for food, travel anywhere, go anywhere. If you aren't comfortable in such a world, prepare to resist.  (We can do more than resist if we believe for we have been given authority over the principalities and powers and rulers of this darkness for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Luke 10:19  Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you.)   What Will Delay the Beast's Plans?   Over 4 1/2 years ago I warned you when the Lord told us that man made plagues were coming to destroy multitudes. Now the DS is losing the battle with the Alliance and are desperate to cause enough pain that the Alliance will back off their prosecution of their murders. These de-populationists will release a worse plague, which the Lord has said there is no cure for but His, https://www.ubm1.org/books/pdf/GV.pdf , just like the ones in Revelations.    Father is using Donald Trump as a modern day Cyrus who will certainly conquer our modern day DS Babylon.   This will supernaturally, although temporarily, free His people from bondage to Babylon so that His purposes for His elect in the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation will stand and the DS will not be able to bring the Mark of the Beast before it's time appointed by God.   What we are about to see is Daniel interpreting the writing on the wall of the fall of Babylon. The King rewarded Daniel's interpretation by making him the third ruler in the kingdom. This would in type put him under the Father and Son as the Man-child third ruler.  Dan 5:16  But I have heard of thee, that thou canst give interpretations, and dissolve doubts; now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with purple, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.   The Man-child was anointed just as Cyrus/Trump was coming in the door. What this shows is that the anointing of the Man-child, typed by Daniel, will come as Trump is returning to power in the final destruction of Babylon.    Man-child and Trump Coming to Lead  Marilyn Klinke - 12/16/21 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed I was sitting in the driver's seat of a car at an intersection looking out the front windshield. I was waiting for the light to turn green so I could proceed on the straight road that I was on. (The Bride, who is on the straight and narrow road to sanctification, is waiting for someone (the Man-child) to go before her.) Suddenly I saw two sports cars, (Representing Trump and the Man-child) driving side by side, coming from the left but heading to the right of the intersection. (This represents that they will usher in a time where things shift from the left to the right both politically and spiritually) They were traveling very fast. (Coming soon)  They almost seemed to be synchronized in the way they were being driven. (We have had dreams of them running parallel and with both having factious enemies to overcome.)    They made a sharp left turn onto the straight road that I was on, going ahead of me. The car on the right side was a pale yellow (The color of sun/Sonshine) and the car on the left was white, but had some straight black vertical lines that went from the hood to the bottom of the trunk. (I prayed about who the two cars represent for two days and Father finally told me and confirmed with 3 heads, that they represent the Man-child's Sunshine colored car on the right, and Trump's white car with black stripes on the left. [Symbolizing that President Trump still needs sanctification.])   I heard in the Spirit “Prius”, which means, "to go before; the necessary prior condition of something." (The Man-child will go before the Bride just as Trump will go before the Bride politically. They both will be in positions of leadership soon.)    The cars didn't look like a Prius. They looked like 2 vintage Porsches, they had hard tops and no spoilers. They were traveling side by side, but with the yellow car on the right, it may have been, that it was the one steering the black and white car. (President Trump will need the guidance and protection the Man-child can give. We must pray and exercise authority over the evil for President Trump.) End of dream. I received by random Isaiah 22:9 Ye have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and ye gathered together the waters of the lower pool.    I then read the whole chapter, which ends with prophecy of Eliakim (Man-child).  Isaiah 22:20-25, And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim (Meaning: “God will establish” concerning the Man-child ministries.) the son of Hilkiah: (Who is replacing the apostate leadership symbolized by Shebna.) 21 and I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand; and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. 22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; and he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.    23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a throne of glory to his father's house. 24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, every small vessel, from the cups even to all the flagons. 25 In that day, saith Jehovah of hosts, shall the nail that was fastened in a sure place give way (Shebna the apostate leader); and it shall be hewn down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off; for Jehovah hath spoken it.)    Trump's Second Inauguration! Vanessa Weeks - 6/10/21 (David's notes in red) In a dream I saw President Trump standing on a stage (the stage represents the world). It seems the stage was outside and he was dressed in a Navy blue suit (could this have to do with the Navy?). (Navy ships sail on top of the seas which represents having dominion over the peoples, nations and tongues in the Bible. Donald Trump has been given authority by God to be the ruler of the free world just as Cyrus was given the same authority to benefit God's people and allow them to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. Donald means, “World Ruler”. This reminds me of David Dengler's dream of Trump emerging from a door on the deck of a hover craft returning to power:   Trump and the US Restored to Power David Dengler - 5/26/21 (David's notes in red)   In a dream, I saw a large body of water (Representing the American people.) with a hovercraft traveling over it. The hovercraft was very large and powerful. (The hovercraft represents the power and industry of the United States.)    It looked new and clean and was painted red, white, and blue. “United States of America” was written on the sides. It reminded me of Air Force One. (The hovercraft is new - new industries and business will be created, with much power. What is unique about a hovercraft is that it ‘floats' on a cushion of air and can travel across almost any surface: ground, water, mud, ice, etc. This make the hovercraft almost unstoppable. In this instance the air cushion represents wind, or the Spirit of God that will support this coming change.)   A door opened and Donald Trump walked out. (Donald Trump coming out the door of the hovercraft represents his official restoration to the Presidency of the United States.)    He turned to his left, and began running around the deck of the hovercraft. He did not run like a seventy year old, but as a much younger, stronger man. (When he turns left and runs around the deck, he is running counter clockwise - he is turning back the clock and restoring to the country those things that were taken away. He runs like a younger man, quickly restoring the (original) constitution.) Then I woke up.   Back to Vanessa's dream: His wife Melania was standing next to him and it was his second inauguration. (We've had many revelations of Trump returning to power soon.)   This was supposed to be secret, but a woman was reporting the proceedings on the air. I did not see her but just heard her. She said the Biden administration knew about this and they said, “Let Trump have his play acting.” I knew this was to bring discredit to the true Trump administration. (This is what the religious faction and the factious DS always do. They project their own wickedness that they are guilty of onto the righteous.)   Off to the right of the stage were women dressed in long white dresses. They danced gracefully as a band played music. (We can see here the virgins who accompany the Bride who in this case is Melania.) Also, I saw Mrs. Trump buy a light purple (Representing royalty) evening dress for the inauguration ball that followed. (We can see here a parallel between the Man-child and Bride and Trump and Melania.) Then I woke up. Thank you Father that you will bring this to pass.   Man-child Coming to Lead the Battle Lana Galchenko - early Dec. 2021 (David's notes in red)   I had a dream about a week or two ago that I was standing on the shore of a large body of water. (God promised Abraham that He would make his descendants as the sand of the seashore and we are the seed of Abraham by faith.) I was watching a small airplane do tricks in the sky, like at an air show. (Michael is a witness of how to maneuver in heavenly places through faith.)    The plane was fancy and shiny and small, like a 2 or 4 seater. The pilot was Michael Hare and he was doing loops and circles and, at one point, flew it up into the heavens with the nose going straight up. (Demonstrating our freedom to work in the heavenlies.)   Someone standing next to me asked me which runway Michael used to get up so high and I said he simply took off using the water. (Meaning, believing and speaking the water of the Word which causes us to go higher and further in our walk with the Lord.)   In the distance, up in the clouds or heaven, I could see the airport where Michael was going to land and understood that this was where he resided. (We abide in heavenly places in Christ.)   As I watched Michael fly, a slow, low-flying black helicopter appeared. (It is black to identify Black Op's hidden works of darkness. It is low flying because it is incapable of flying high in the heavenlies above the curses of this world. It represents the Babylonish faction in Church and state which the Man-child will be given authority over.)     It was flying close to the water. (Both of these Babylonish entities are never very far from the people of the Word. They work hard to destroy the Gospel from getting out to the people; many of which oppose the communist DS government.).    The plane swooped down and started to chase it as if in pursuit of an enemy. Then I woke up. (Michael, meaning “who is like God” is probably representing the Man-child body, whose job it will be to bring an end to their evil destruction of the Word and souls.) Trump Returns With a Vengeance  Garrett Crawford - 5/16/21 (David's Notes in red) I dreamed I was in a long line of people. We were all in a single file. (As we will see, Garrett represents a group of people whose eye is single and who walk a narrow path of sanctification from the world and the worldly. Luke 11:34,The lamp of thy body is thine eye: when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when it is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.  There was a young Air Force cadet or service woman in full uniform at the end of the line checking us off. We seemed to be waiting to get into a venue or a rally. I had no idea why we were in line. But after a long time I found myself as the very last person. (As we will see, this young Air Force cadet could represent a future overcomer; our little sister spoken of in Song of Solomon. These are the ones that will come out of the apostate church system. As in Lana's dream above, there were people observing Michael's example as the Man-child overcoming in heavenly places.) Song 8:8-9, We have a little sister, And she hath no breasts: What shall we do for our sister In the day when she shall be spoken for? 9 If she be a wall, We will build upon her a turret of silver: And if she be a door, We will inclose her with boards of cedar.) The service woman looked at me and took additional information from me that was not asked of anyone else. Of all the people in line, I was the only one she singled out to get this information. (They will ask us many questions about the things that they never learned from their apostate church leadership.)  I felt uncomfortable that I was singled out and asked her why only I was chosen. (Garrett represents the first fruits.) She said she wasn't sure but she said she could find out and walked away. (I have no idea why I was singled out by the service woman. I wasn't in trouble it seems. The woman was smiling at me while she was asking me the questions about myself. But even she didn't know why I was singled out.) (Many will want to know why we we're chosen and they will "come out from among her (the Babylonish Apostate Harlot) and be separate” and they will ‘find out' and learn about sanctification. 2 Co. 6:14-18, Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what portion hath a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement hath a temple of God with idols? for we are a temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you, 18 And will be to you a Father, And ye shall be to me sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Many are having doubts about Trump's return before the 2024 election. Garrett was singled out because he personally needed a confirmation that Trump was coming back.) At this point, I was all alone in the kitchen deep within the backrooms of this large concert hall or stadium. The only way I knew this, was all the noise and commotion was echoing down the halls. There were many thousands of people somewhere cheering in expectation. I had no idea what for. (The thousands of people waiting in the arena could have been there for a Trump rally so that he could come out and speak to them. In the dream I never went into the venue with the crowd like everyone else.) (The Trump rallies are continuing even after Biden's false inauguration.)  True disciples of Christ recognize that our kingdom is not of this world as Jesus told us in His Word. John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.) After a few minutes, I heard a basement door open behind me and men in suits starting coming out. It was a big entourage of people; then came Donald Trump up the stairs from this dark and dungeon like basement. All his attendants scattered to important jobs and tasks. (It was such a shock when Donald Trump appeared from the basement. I was not expecting that at all! ) (He is coming back officially because he never left and has ruled through the military. He still has the nukes and AF-1.  Biden has been left in a fake white house to prove how life and economies do under a communist.  Everyone will see soon. We are not looking to a man to worship or to save us because we understand that God is sovereign and puts into power the basest of men for His own plans and purposes. Dan. 4:17, The sentence is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones; to the intent that the living may know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the lowest of men.) We are told that Trump will return and the election audits will prove he was voted in as President.  He will not be President under USA. inc. because it is defunct. But he will be recognized as President. GESARA/NESARA law dictates that there has to be a new election for all rulers of the Republic which Trump will be inaugurated.  Only I was left alone with Donald Trump. He was fierce and angry like a mother bear robbed of her cubs. He was bloodied. His nose was bleeding and his thumb was bloody. He was not in a good mood. (Donald Trump coming out of the basement bloodied and angry was foreshadowing his return to official power.) (The thumb is the opposing digit of all the digits of the hand; without it, we couldn't grasp things or use our hands as God intended them for use. President Trump is often seen with a thumbs up gesture which means keep up the faith but it isnt without cost for some are dead. The hand represents either our works or Christ's works through us. Jesus is the Arm of the Father who will rule for Him and as His disciples we are His hands and feet. Isa. 40:10, Behold, the Lord Jehovah will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him: Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. The bloodied thumb here represents the seeming set back of God's work through Trump and the seeming victory of the DS over the Trump administration.)  God allowed this handicapping of His work through Donald Trump temporarily so that people could see the evil of the DS and the demonrats and learn to pray. And so that everything could be exposed and brought to light. Luke 8:17 For nothing is hid, that shall not be made manifest; nor anything secret, that shall not be known and come to light.) He rummaged through the kitchen and grabbed a container of sugar and poured it on the hot grill and then stuck his bloody thumb in it. (He is trying to 'sugar coat' the loss. Maybe he is trying to make things more acceptable to the public. Sun Tzu's “The Art of War” which Trump ascribes to says, “Appear Strong when you are weak and weak when you are strong.” In order to throw your enemies off track and cause them to underestimate you.) I tried to make small talk with him but he was on edge. He was still angry about the election and very bitter.  He was reminiscing about how much respect the elite fighter pilots used to give him when he would walk onto a military base. I just listened to him with respect and always referred to him as Mr. President.  After talking with him for a few minutes he appeared 10 foot tall and glowing like he had this powerful aura. I was quite intimidated and overwhelmed by his presence. There was some kind of supernatural change. (The number 10 represents the Law and judgment. God is going to give power to President Trump to bring His justice to all these evil DS satanists for their wickedness. His power will be much greater this second time around to usher in the great awakening and time of great revival of God's elect now and during the first half of the tribulation period.) But his ego grew with him. He kept bragging how great he was. I didn't feel completely comfortable with it but, I had to acknowledge something powerful was taking place. (Let's pray for him that he gets a revelation that God is empowering him and that it is for His people's sake.) Then I woke up.

Gone Missing in Harlem by Karla FC Holloway (TriQuarterly 2021) tells the story of an African American family trying to survive the early decades of the twentieth century. The Mosbys leave their life in Sedalia within hours after six-year-old Percy loudly notes that his father's boss has made a mistake in calculating what is owed. Percy's parents know what would happen if they stayed. They settle in Harlem, but the Spanish flu is raging around the globe, and Percy's father doesn't survive. His mother, DeLilah, is pregnant with Selma. Years later, Percy witnesses a murder in New York, and DeLilah sends him back to Sedalia. She does her best to make a home for her daughter, but Selma's childhood is cut short when a brutal rape leaves her pregnant. After her baby is kidnapped, the city's first ‘colored policeman', Weldon Haynie Thomas, vows that this kidnapping will not end like the Lindbergh kidnapping. Gone Missing in Harlem touches upon many things, including African American soldiers coming home from WWI, the Great Migration north, and the world of 1930's Harlem. Gone Missing in Harlem is historical, African American literary fiction and a mystery, but it's ultimately a novel about the lengths a mother will go to protect her family.

His mother, DeLilah, is pregnant with Selma. Years later, Percy witnesses a murder in New York, and DeLilah sends him back to Sedalia. She does her best to make a home for her daughter, but Selma's childhood is cut short when a brutal rape leaves her pregnant. After her baby is kidnapped, the city's first ‘colored policeman', Weldon Haynie Thomas, vows that this kidnapping will not end like the Lindbergh kidnapping. Gone Missing in Harlem touches upon many things, including African American soldiers coming home from WWI, the Great Migration north, and the world of 1930's Harlem. Gone Missing in Harlem is historical, African American literary fiction and a mystery, but it's ultimately a novel about the lengths a mother will go to protect her family.

Photo:  Eugenics supporters hold signs criticizing various "genetically inferior" groups. Wall Street, New York, c. 1915. @Batchelorshow The Orphans of Davenport: Eugenics, the Great Depression, and the War over Children's Intelligence, by Marilyn Brookwood.   https://www.amazon.com/Orphans-Davenport-Depression-Childrens-Intelligence/dp/1631494686 The fascinating―and eerily timely―tale of the forgotten, Depression-era psychologists who launched the modern science of childhood development. “Doomed from birth” was how the psychologist Harold Skeels described two toddler girls at the Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home in Davenport, Iowa, in 1934. Their IQ scores, added together, totaled just 81. Following prevailing eugenic beliefs of the times, Skeels and his colleague Marie Skodak assumed that the girls had inherited their parents' low intelligence and were therefore unfit for adoption. The girls were sent to an institution for the “feebleminded” to be cared for by “moron” women. To Skeels and Skodak's astonishment, under the women's care, the children's IQ scores became normal.  Now considered one of the most important scientific findings of the twentieth century, the discovery that environment shapes children's intelligence was also one of the most fiercely contested―and its origin story has never been told. In The Orphans of Davenport, the psychologist and esteemed historian Marilyn Brookwood chronicles how a band of young psychologists in 1930s Iowa shattered the nature-versus-nurture debate and overthrew long-accepted racist and classist views of childhood development. Transporting readers to a rural Iowa devastated by dust storms and economic collapse, Brookwood reveals just how profoundly unlikely it was for this breakthrough to come from the Iowa Child Welfare Research Station. Funded by the University of Iowa and the Rockefeller Foundation, and modeled on America's experimental agricultural stations, the Iowa Station was virtually unknown, a backwater compared to the renowned psychology faculties of Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton. Despite the challenges they faced, the Iowa psychologists replicated increased intelligence in thirteen more “retarded” children. When Skeels published their incredible work, America's leading psychologists―eugenicists all―attacked and condemned his conclusions. The loudest critic was Lewis M. Terman, who advocated for forced sterilization of low-intelligence women and whose own widely accepted IQ test was threatened by the Iowa research. Terman and his opponents insisted that intelligence was hereditary, and their prestige ensured that the research would be ignored for decades. Remarkably, it was not until the 1960s that a new generation of psychologists accepted environment's role in intelligence and helped launch the modern field of developmental neuroscience. Drawing on prodigious archival research, Brookwood reclaims the Iowa researchers as intrepid heroes, and movingly recounts the stories of the orphans themselves, many of whom later credited the psychologists with giving them the opportunity to forge successful lives. A radiant story of the power and promise of science to better the lives of us all, The Orphans of Davenport unearths an essential history at a moment when race science is dangerously resurgent. 16-page black-and-white insert

Escaping Continuous Contagion (3) (Audio) David Eells - 11/21/21 The Apostate Leadership of God's People Removed   History must repeat.  Ecc 1:9-10  That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.  10  Is there a thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been long ago, in the ages which were before us.   History shows that before the DS Babylon is completely taken down by Cyrus Trump, DS must take down the apostate leadership of God's people. This is because the people in Babylonish religious bondage must be set free to follow the Moses type, reformer Man-child leadership into the tribulation wilderness.  Eze 12:12-16 And the prince (This is Zedekiah, representing the apostate leadership of God's people) that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the dark, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, because he shall not see the land with his eyes. 13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare; and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there. 14  And I will scatter toward every wind all that are round about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them. 15  And they shall know that I am Jehovah, when I shall disperse them among the nations, and scatter them through the countries. 16  But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among the nations whither they come; and they shall know that I am Jehovah. While we agree that the Babylonish religious leadership is already in captivity spiritually they are still in control and that must be removed . Jer 21:4-10  Thus saith Jehovah, the God of Israel (Representing God's NT people today), Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans that besiege you, without the walls; and I will gather them into the midst of this city. 5  And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation. (This is because they have departed from the covenant as written to make up their own covenant and Jesus.) 6  And I will smite the inhabitants of this city (The apostate Jerusalem leadership), both man and beast: they shall die of a great pestilence. 7  And afterward, saith Jehovah, I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah, and his servants, and the people, even such as are left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those that seek their life: and he shall smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy. 8  And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death. 9  He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence; but he that goeth out, and passeth over to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey. 10  For I have set my face upon this city for evil, and not for good, saith Jehovah: it shall be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire. (Like these two texts we still get regular warning in our morning meeting that Babylon will strike again. The Lord showed us that we could not pray away completely the effects of the DS plagues for he would use them to drain the swamp in the Church and even take some home who are innocent.)   The Alliance is slowly wiping out the DS leadership They are ratting on each other - https://realrawnews.com/  - look at each category. This has been happening for years and it is a huge job. Cyrus won battles before he took the city of Babylon. Confusion comes when people see someone in public who looks like the person arrested.  Both the DS and the Alliance are replacing these people with doubles or clones for opposite purposes.  Before Trump was elected the first time I told you he would be. Then I told you history would repeat and that he is God's modern day Cyrus, who conquered the Babylonian DS and set the people of God free from Babylonish apostasy to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem, which is God's people.   Over 4 1/2 years ago I warned you when the Lord told us that man made plagues were coming to destroy multitudes. At that time God gave us dreams of particular enemies being killed by God in the religious and secular realm by the plagues, which hasnt happened yet, meaning something bigger is still coming.  Now the DS is losing the battle with the Alliance and are desperate to cause enough pain that the Alliance will back off their prosecution and execution of the the DS murderers. These de-populationist (eugenicists) have released worse plagues just like the ones in Revelations, which the Lord has said there is no cure for but His. /books/pdf/GV.pdf  Desperate people do desperate things, like loose more and worse plagues. I believe quarantine Lockdowns are coming again. Get supplies to stay indoors. C-19 is not the real killer. The DS population control vax is. Studies have shown Marburg, Ebola, and Aids are in the fake vax too and also ready to be released by other means too.  https://thetruereporter.com/doctor-exposes-the-truth-marburg-ebola-aids-all-is-hidden-inside-the-vaxx  https://tv.gab.com/channel/realstewpeters/view/doctor-marburg-aids-ebola-in-vaxx-618d6e68b3d7d282f9f12e9e  And the booster is 10 times more deadly than the first two jabs.  Some received placebos (saline solution) in the beginning so that the crime would not be discerned immediately.   The Death Jab James Red Pill: Dr. Vladimir Zelenko drops many proofs of the depopulation conspiracy. Very few medical experts have the courage to speak out about the DEMONIC DEMOCRATS' DASTARDLY DEPOPULATION plan. https://rumble.com/vp1a8j-breaking-news-presentation-dr.-zelenko-potus-trumps-doctor-just-risked-ever.html  Smallpox has conveniently been discovered at the CDC, which is DS to the core. This is either a distraction from the vaccine plagues above or a threat of greater things coming if the Alliance doesnt back off the arrests. https://strangesounds.org/2021/11/next-smallpox-pandemic-vials-labeled-smallpox-vaccine-research-facility-pennsylvania-video.html CIA spooks are attempting to defect to the Alliance? We know these people from our own DS faction because they have the same demons. They want to sneak back in but are not capable of repenting of witchcraft, fornication, perversion, hatred, slander, lying, and stealing demons. https://realrawnews.com/2021/11/deep-state-cia-spooks-defecting-to-white-hats/  I suggest taking them into custody and giving them a chance to tell the known truth, which will prove who they are.   On Nov 11, 2021 Missy Pollock sent this:    A Deadly Winter Glynda Lomax - 9/21/19 (David's notes in red) Prepare My children, for an intense winter comes your way and death rides on its winds. There will be much lack and hunger and need of heat. Your little ones will starve if you do not prepare. Prepare, for darkness comes your way. This is not a winter such as you have seen before, this one brings new dangers. I warn that you may prepare. Many will not heed My warning and death will claim them. This is a time to walk in much wisdom and prudence, that you may be spared from the jaws of death a little longer. Prepare for lack, for hunger and for cold. Prepare that you may stay warm in this time. Warn your loved ones. A deadly winter comes your way. Proverbs 6:6-8  Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. Hebrews 11:7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Proverbs 22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. https://wingsofprophecy.blogspot.com/2019/09/a-deadly-winter.html?m=1 This message in video form: https://youtu.be/s5A8PcdsOf0 Below is more detail about what Glynda saw in the Spirit concerning the Dark Winter. She said, "This is a little more detail on the deadly winter and a couple more things I have NOT been able to shake about what is soon coming. The next two days after I made the Deadly Winter video, I kept seeing in my spirit that people were dying in their houses and no one could come and remove the bodies, ... I also saw that no police or ambulances were running. (Editors note: It is because of the fear of contagion of the Pestilences) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4iYxVBpDQjs    Yes, I think it will be like AA Allens vision of being sprayed from planes and killing very quickly.  Possibly paralyzing the lungs like the pestilent coral snake snow in Eve's dream.   Vision to Evangelist A.A. Allen in the 1950s  ...As I looked, suddenly from the sky I saw a giant hand reach down. That gigantic hand was reaching out toward the Statue of Liberty. In a moment her gleaming torch was torn from her hand, and in it instead was placed a cup; and I saw protruding from that great cup a giant sword, shining as if a great light had been turned upon its glistening edge. Never before had I seen such a sharp, glistening, dangerous sword. It seemed to threaten all the world. As the great cup was placed in the hand of the Statue of Liberty, I heard these words, "Thus saith the Lord of hosts, drink ye and be drunken and spue and fall and rise no more because of the sword which I will send". As I heard these words, I recognized them as a quotation from Jeremiah 25:27. I was amazed to hear the Statue of Liberty speak out in reply, "I WILL NOT DRINK!" Then as the voice of the thunder, I heard again the voice of the Lord saying, "Ye shall certainly drink". (Jeremiah 25:28) Then suddenly the giant hand forced the cup to the lips of the Statue of Liberty, and she became powerless to defend herself. The mighty hand of God forced her to drink every drop from the cup. As she drank the bitter dregs, these were the words that I heard: "Should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished, for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts". (Jeremiah 27:29) When the cup was withdrawn from the lips of the Statute of Liberty, I noticed the sword was missing from the cup, which could mean but one thing. THE CONTENTS OF THE CUP HAD BEEN COMPLETELY CONSUMED! I knew that the sword merely typified war, death, and destruction, which is no doubt on the way. ... I saw the Statue of Liberty become unsteady on her feet and begin to stagger and to lose her balance. I saw her splashing in the gulf, trying to regain her balance. I saw her stagger again and again and fall to her knees. As I saw her desperate attempts to regain her balance and rise to her feet again, my heart was moved as never before with compassion for her struggles; but as she staggered there in the gulf, once again I heard these words: "Drink ye and be drunken and spue and fall and rise no more because of the sword which I will send among you". (Jeremiah 25:37) ...Then as I watched, another amazing thing was taking place. Far to the northwest, just out over Alaska, a huge, black cloud was arising. As it rose, it was as black as night. It seemed to be in the shape of a man's head. As it continued to arise, I observed two light spots in the black cloud. It rose further, and a gaping hole appeared. I could see that the black cloud was taking the shape of a skull, for now the huge, white, gaping mouth was plainly visible. Finally, the head was complete. Then the shoulders began to appear; and on either side, long, black arms. It seemed that what I saw was the entire North American continent, spread out like a map upon a table with this terrible skeleton-formed cloud arising from behind the table. It rose steadily until the form was visible down to the waist. At the waist the skeleton seemed to bend toward the United States, stretching forth a hand toward the east and one toward the west--one toward New York and one toward Seattle. As the awful form stretched forward, I could see that its entire attention seemed to be focused upon the United States, overlooking Canada at least for the time being. As I saw the horrible black cloud in the form of a skeleton bending toward America, bending from the waist over, reaching down toward Chicago and out toward both coasts, I knew its one interest was to destroy the multitudes. As I watched in horror, the great black cloud stopped just above the Great Lakes region and turned its face toward New York City. Then out of the horrible, great gaping mouth began to appear wisps of white vapor which looked like smoke, as a cigarette smoker would blow puffs of smoke from his mouth. These whitish vapors were being blown toward New York City. The smoke began to spread until it had covered all the eastern part of the United States. Then the skeleton turned to the west and out of the horrible mouth and nostrils came another great puff of white smoke. This time it was blown in the direction of the west coast. In a few moments' time the entire West Coast and Los Angeles area were covered with its vapors. Then toward the center came a third great puff. As I watched, St. Louis and Kansas City were enveloped in its white vapors. Then on they came toward New Orleans. Then on they swept until they reached the Statue of Liberty where she stood staggering drunkenly in the blue waters of the gulf. As the white vapors began to spread around the head of the statue, she took in but one gasping breath and then began to cough as though to rid her lungs of the horrible vapors she had inhaled. One could readily discern by the coughing that those white vapors had seared her lungs. ...As I watched, the coughing grew worse. It sounded like a person about to cough out his lungs. The Statue of Liberty was moaning and groaning. She was in mortal agony. The pain must have been terrific, as again and again she tried to clear her lungs of those horrible white vapors. I watched her there in the gulf as she staggered, clutching her lungs and her breast with her hands. Then she fell to her knees. In a moment she gave one final cough, made a last desperate effort to rise from her knees, and then fell face forward into the waters of the gulf and lay still as death. Tears ran down my face as I realized that she was dead! Only the lapping of the waves, splashing over her body which was partly under the water and partly out of the water, broke the stillness. (Editors note: This is not saying all of the US will die but Liberty will die. The lockdown and failure of supplies that will surely follow these plagues will take away Liberty. The US will recover as the DS falls.) "A fire devoureth before them, and behind them a flame burneth; the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness, yea, and nothing shall escape them". (Joel 2:3) Suddenly the silence was shattered by the screaming of sirens. The sirens seemed to scream, "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!" Never before had I heard such shrill, screaming sirens. They seemed to be everywhere--to the north, the south, the east, and the west. There seemed to be multitudes of sirens; and as I looked, I saw people everywhere running, but it seemed none of them ran more than a few paces, and then they fell. And even as I had seen the Statue of Liberty struggling to regain her poise and balance and finally falling for the last time to die on her face, I now saw millions of people falling in the streets, on the sidewalks, struggling. I heard their screams for mercy and help. I heard their horrible coughing as though their lungs had been seared with fire. I heard the moanings and groanings of the doomed and the dying. As I watched, a few finally reached shelters, but only a few ever got to the shelters. Above the moaning and the groaning of the dying multitudes, I heard these words: "A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth, for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations. He will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth, and the slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground". (Jeremiah 25:31-33) ...Then to my ears came another sound--a sound of distant singing. It was the sweetest music I had ever heard. There was joyful shouting and sounds of happy laughter. Immediately I knew it was the rejoicing of the saints of God. I looked, and there, high in the heavens, above the smoke and poisonous gases, above the noise of the battle, I saw a huge mountain. It seemed to be of solid rock, and I knew at once that this was the Mountain of the Lord. The sounds of music and rejoicing were coming from a cleft high up in the side of the rock mountain. It was the saints of God who were doing the rejoicing. It was God's own people who were singing and dancing and shouting with joy, safe from all the harm which had come upon the earth, for they were hidden away in the cleft of the rock. There in the cleft they were shut in, protected by a great, giant hand which reached out of the heavens and which was none other than the hand of God, shutting them in until the storm be overpassed. Missy also found this: The Next Plague Will Be Worse Glynda Lomax - 10/2/20 (Missy's notes in green) (David's Notes in Red)   I was thinking this week about how winter is coming, Covid-19 is still hanging around and that I saw another plague coming before Covid-19 is gone. And this next one is more deadly and kills faster. It keeps coming back to me, so I need to make clear what I keep seeing. This is not a “Thus saith the Lord,” this is a “I saw this and believe it is coming.” The next plague will be released by someone, it looks like, in mild weather or in an area where there is mild weather at the time. In the Spirit, I hear a hissing, like the sound an aerosol can makes, and I wondered if the virus is in a container that the person opens and just sets it down somewhere. (Missy: From what she describes it makes me think of it being sprayed from planes. This may be what Eve saw in her dream with the poisonous snakes/deadly snow falling.) This new plague will kill very quickly. I keep hearing three days. And you will SEE it on people. Some kind of sores on their upper bodies – they look an inch or so across to me, and there are lots of them. I can't see their lower bodies, I think they're wearing pants. It makes them very ill and they don't last long. This one is 100 percent released by man and done on purpose. And it has to do with blaming someone. Something about releasing it has to do with wanting to cause blame. … (The DS is releasing this but they will surely blame Trump because conservatives and forsaking the Vaccines.) Because this virus will be released on purpose and to cause blame, ... there will be no warning whatsoever when the mystery illness starts killing people. (Marburg, Aids, and Ebola will spread from the vaccinated as we have seen. But Smallpox can spread from planes.) It will spread very fast from those people. May God have mercy on His own.  Seeing this plague in the spirit again made me think of the following verse. I'm not saying this plague is a judgment –He did not say that, only that it brought this verse to mind. Take Refuge from the Coming Judgment. Isaiah 26:20 Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. (As in A.A. Allens saints in the cleft of the rock) Missy sent this on 11/16/21 and said, "This may be the new plague released that Glynda Lomax saw since there were sores on people. The article says that there's a concern that it could be released as as bioweapon. The vaccine for it is very harmful and would not be good to vaccinate people except in extreme cases." According to the Mayo Clinic: Smallpox is a contagious, disfiguring and often deadly disease that has affected humans for thousands of years. Naturally occurring smallpox was wiped out worldwide by 1980 — the result of an unprecedented global immunization campaign. Samples of smallpox virus have been kept for research purposes. And advances in synthetic biology have made it possible to create smallpox from published amino acid sequences. This has led to concerns that smallpox could someday be used as a biological warfare agent. No cure or treatment for smallpox exists. A vaccine can prevent smallpox, but the risk of the vaccine's side effects is too high to justify routine vaccination for people at low risk of exposure to the smallpox virus. The first symptoms of smallpox usually appear 10 to 14 days after you're infected. During the incubation period of seven to 17 days, you look and feel healthy and can't infect others. Following the incubation period, a sudden onset of flu-like signs and symptoms occurs. A few days later, flat, red spots appear first on your face, hands and forearms, and later on your trunk. Within a day or two, many of these lesions turn into small blisters filled with clear fluid, which then turns into pus. Scabs begin to form eight to nine days later and eventually fall off, leaving deep, pitted scars. Lesions also develop in the mucous membranes of your nose and mouth and quickly turn into sores that break open.   My Email to the President in 2020 David Eells Prepare for a second Plague not like the first.  I told you that Covid 19 did not fulfill all that the Lord told us three years ago that He would do with the plague to bring down the factions and apostates and that I expected more plague. Then we received this: On Jul 6, 2020, William Steenland had this dream: In this dream the Lord allowed me to follow these satanists into a very rich high rise private apartment condo in NY.  I knew that they had infiltrated the CDC and WHO and were executing a plan for their satanic New World Order. The dream changed and I was still in the same condo at a small medical facility where people were dropping like flies from some unknown pathogen or contagion. There were three women and two men who were so sick they were unable to function. I tried to grab the one woman closest to me while she was falling. In the dream I knew the elite were experimenting with the next Plandemic. I said ma'am ma'am what's wrong get up ? Again and again, but she was dead.  I went over to the nurse who was in a back room. I could tell she knew something and was divided about it. She was very sad and on her knees. I knew it was partially because she was totally helpless to assist or medicate the sick that were there. I picked her up off the ground and somewhat screamed at her ”what is happening to these people?” She told me “don't ask me that question” as she cried in fear and sadness. I yelled again for her to tell me everything you know,  what's happening to these people?! She again told me not to ask that question. She knew they were victims of a trial run for the next pandemic. In the dream I just knew it. That's is the info that kept coming to me in the dream, next plandemic and trial run experiment.    The Next Scamdemic to be Rolled Out is Marburg Virus Sent to UBM by Frances McKenzie - 10/12/21     The next scamdemic to be rolled out is Marburg. The adverse reactions to the current v@x will be blamed on a deadly outbreak of Marburg. Special jab and test are ready to be deployed. End game is depopulation. https://t.me/songsofascent/9444 Please see previous posts starting here https://t.me/songsofascent/9121     Marburg Virus Disease | CDC Marburg virus disease (MVD) is a rare but severe hemorrhagic fever which affects both people and non-human primates. MVD is caused by the Marburg virus, a genetically unique zoonotic (or, animal-borne) RNA virus of the filovirus family. The six species of Ebola virus are the only other known members of the filovirus family. Marburg virus was first recognized in 1967, when outbreaks of hemorrhagic fever occurred simultaneously in laboratories in Marburg and Frankfurt, Germany and in Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia). Thirty-one people became ill, initially laboratory workers followed by several medical personnel and family members who had cared for them. Seven deaths were reported. The first people infected had been exposed to Ugandan imported African green monkeys or their tissues while conducting research. One additional case was diagnosed retrospectively. The reservoir host of Marburg virus is the African fruit bat, Rousettus aegyptiacus. Fruit bats infected with Marburg virus do not show obvious signs of illness. Primates (including people) can become infected with Marburg virus, and may develop serious disease with high mortality. Further study is needed to determine if other species may also host the virus.  Marburg (Marburg Virus Disease) | CDC Urgent message from university hospital manager and academic Kieran Morrissey. VIDEO (freedommedia Published September 30, 2021)     COVID FADES AS HEMORRHAGIC FEVER RISES?: BEWARE covid-fades-haemorrhagic-fever-rises-beware Beware of narrow thinking. You have suffered 18 months of fake pandemic & been assaulted from every direction. Covid is being more widely exposed as fake, & there is growing awareness that the vaccines are indeed a weapon of mass destruction. As this article warns, the globalists have had the next plan in place for years & the weakened Vax population will be truly on track to follow the Great Reset, to a world population reduced by 6.5 billion peiple.   A Possible Marburg-RiVax Final Solution By Kieran Morrissey - 9/22/21 While it would now appear from Mainstream Media's propaganda and the relaxation of some of the draconian restrictions on freedom, that the war on the COVID pandemic war is being won, however I believe that this is a ruse, reinforcement part of a larger PSYCOPS to complete an ongoing Eugenics agenda. Features of the COVID-19 pandemic are very worrying as follows: – COVID-19 disease has now been overwhelmingly proven to be just another treatable cold / Influenza which was medically mis-managed by denying early treatment which caused premature deaths in very elderly and people with underlying health conditions, this gave the misconception that there were excess deaths occurring and created mass hysteria. Mainstream Media coverage of a possible Wuhan Lab virus leak heightened the fear that a perceived sudden increase in deaths could have been the result of a deadly bioweapon escape and caused further panic to develop a vaccine to stop the spread of COVID, it was stated that this would take at least 10 years further raising public fears. The use of the now debunked real-time PCR test to diagnose COVID produced large numbers of positive results, dubbed “cases” without any symptoms, i.e. asymptomatic infections which are known not to exist, and this further terrorised the population. We now know that at least 97% of those positive results were false due the excessive cycle thresholds used in testing labs. Real-time PCR was developed as a research tool and is considered not suitable for diagnostic purposes. New COVID mRNA and Viral Vector gene therapy technology “vaccine” injections were hastily developed, These injections were administered in a frenzy, in a mass global unlicensed experiment, without informed consent, causing many adverse reactions including symptoms similar to haemorrhagic fever i.e. bleeding and clots, The clots and bleeding have been found to be caused by the spike proteins generated by the body in response to the injections, and this is compounded by an undisclosed ingredient, Graphene Oxide, in the injections which is also known to cause clots and bleeding. The first and second doses of the COVID injections have now weakened the overall health of the population as can be seen by the current situation in hospitals which are well above capacity during the summer months with patients suffering adverse reactions from the injections, many patients have symptoms similar to haemorrhagic fever. The planned COVID booster injections claimed to be necessary due to waning immunity of the initial vaccinations, plus proposed injection of children, will undoubtedly cause more severe haemorrhagic fever like symptoms and also be more widespread. During my research into the false claims of excess deaths caused by COVID-19 and the pseudo-sciences which support it, I have stumbled over some very worrying developments which I will summarize due to the urgency I feel to highlight them to the public as follows: – Bill Gates GAVI published an article on 22-Apr-2021 titled “The next pandemic: Marburg?”. There have been numerous Mainstream Media articles highlighting an upcoming threat, Marburg, and referencing the WHO in recent months. Marburg Virus is a relatively rare haemorrhagic fever which was first described in 1967, there have only been a total of 376 related deaths, and only 16 deaths since 2005. Primerdesign developed a one-step Real-Time PCR test genesig® in 2018 for Marburg haemorrhagic fever. Why would they develop a test in 2018 for an illness which has not had a major outbreak since 2005? Soligenix, are currently rushing to trial a ricin-rich vaccine RiVax® for Marburg haemorrhagic fever. RiVax has Fast Track designation for the prevention of ricin intoxication by the US FDA. Approval of ricin toxin vaccine will utilize the FDA Animal Rule to eliminate the phase 1, 2 & 3 trials. Why such a rush now, to trial a vaccine for which there has only been a total of 376 deaths since 1967 and only 16 deaths since 2005? The main component of the Rivax vaccine is Ricin, this is a lectin and a highly potent toxin produced in the seeds of the castor oil plant. Soligenix shareholders include BlackRrock Fund Advisors, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, etc. Ricin is a lectin and a highly potent toxin produced in the seeds of the castor oil plant. Ricin is very toxic if inhaled, injected, or ingested. It acts as a toxin by inhibiting protein synthesis. It prevents cells from assembling various amino acids into proteins according to the messages it receives from messenger RNA in a process conducted by the cell's ribosome (the protein-making machinery) – that is, the most basic level of cell metabolism, essential to all living cells and thus to life itself. A paper titled Asymptomatic Infection of Marburg Virus was published by the NIH in January 2021. The fabrication of the COVID-19 pandemic and its apparent failure leads me to believe that there is a second phase or final solution at hand to catch the public while they are off-guard. Haemorrhagic fever symptoms can be easily increased and made more visible by forcing COVID booster injections on vulnerable, COVID injection injured patients, who are now prisoners in hospitals and nursing homes, plus injecting children. The haemorrhagic fever symptoms would appear as a huge Marburg pandemic and could be confirmed by the new Marburg PCR test causing mass hysteria like the world has never seen. RiVax could be quickly deployed using the existing COVID injection infrastructure and the public would be easily convinced to take it using PSYCOPS on Mainstream Media. The toxic ricin in the RiVax would kill billions of people very quickly and effectively before they realised what was happening as the deaths would be attributed to Marburg haemorrhagic fever based on the symptoms. People who refused the RiVax could be labelled as asymptomatic spreaders and placed in camps like they are doing in Australia claimed to be a COVID protection measure. If you read my previous two COVID articles you will have seen that I began this journey in early 2020 as a vaccine hesitant person. As a result of my recent study of Virology and Immunology in an attempt to understand the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus, my previously held beliefs in the theories being peddled by official science and medicine has been completely upended. I now understand that Louis Pasteur fabricated his Germ Theory of Disease in the 1850's stating that invisible microorganisms known as pathogens or “germs” lead to disease. Pasteur's ideas on Viruses were concocted upon similar theories going back to Ancient Greece and Rome, more like a developing religion or cult rather than real scientific discovery. I now believe that the theory developed by Antoine Bechamp (Pasteur bitter rival) Terrain Theory which states that microorganisms (germs) feed upon the poisonous material which they find in the sick organism and prepare it for excretion, much more similar to the natural immune response which we know to be true. However, Terrain Theory has been actively blocked due to a bias for the Germ Theory by Big Pharma due to its immense profitability. The practice of Variolation dated back to the 16th century in China and is the precursor of the first Vaccine invented for smallpox in 1796 by English physician Edward Jenner. I have discovered that the widespread use of vaccines has killed far more people than they have saved. A bookkeeper, John D. Rockefeller who made his fortune in the oil business was the first philanthropist and his foundations pioneered developments in medical research. The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research founded in 1901, was in the forefront of research in virology and principal investigator Louis O. Kunkel had researched the biology and pathology of the mosaic virus diseases.  Beginning in 1930, the Rockefeller Foundation provided financial support to the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics, which later inspired and conducted eugenics experiments in the Third Reich. The Rockefeller empire in tandem with Chase Manhattan Bank (now JP Morgan Chase), owns over half of the pharmaceutical interests in the United States today. No alternative approach to the Germ Theory in virology, immunology or medicine including the increasing use of vaccines, has been possible due to the indoctrination of the sciences by the most powerful and wealthy industry in the world. Banking and Big Pharma who now control Mainstream Media and all medical and scientific institutions. Please do your own research, quickly, use your critical thinking and let us unite to stop this madness. I believe the Marburg-RiVax final solution could be deployed suddenly while we are relaxing after the worst of COVID and distracted by the now daily revelations on Mainstream Media regarding the Government fraud and public health mismanagement which created the COVID emergency.

Stream the full episode now on Ickonic.com   Marburg, Aids and Ebola in the V@X Finish naturopathic Doctor Ariyana Love says there's new research out of Spain supporting the idea that at least some batches of the coronavirus vaccine have graphene oxide in them. She tells Stew Peters that graphene oxide is included as a way to deliver nanotechnology into the blood of the vaccinated, as well as components of Ebola and the Marburg virus. Michelle Malkin has been one of the real warriors on the right over the past few years. She has a new article out: “What Every Parent Must Know About Pfizer.” She says Pfizer has a history of killing kids using the Marburg virus in vac/cines and she joins Stew to discuss the crimes the drug company got away with 25 years ago in Nigeria and is trying to get away with today.      Dr. Judy Mikovits: Antidote for Vaccine Toxin and Warns Against Dangerous Fake One Before its news - Wednesday, November 17, 2021 In this stunning interview, Dr Judy Mikovits joins Ann Vandersteel, who asks her whether COVID-19 is a real virus. Dr Judy, who worked at Fort Detrick and who worked for years with Anthony Fauci at NIH replies, “No, COVID-19, the disease is not caused by SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus. “SARS-CoV-2 is not a real human virus, it's a monkey virus grown in the vero monkey cell line, always has been, just as SARS was created in that cell line and the variants are in that cell line. “So the disease, COVID never satisfied any of Koch's Postulates or the Hill's Criteria for a causative agent of a disease, because in order for the virus, SARS-CoV-2 to have caused COVID, everybody with evidence of infection has to have disease. “And what we know is, essentially, nobody with evidence of infection by that fraudulent PCR test – that is not testing for SARS-C0V-2 – and PCR does not test for an infectious virus. “Nobody's sick. This has a 99.7% survival rate, so there's no such thing as an ‘asymptomatic carrier' of a disease-causing virus. A virus either makes you sick or it doesn't. “And what we know is this disease called COVID was caused by contaminated flu shots – which are all contaminated with coronaviruses – and they are, every year and that those viruses recombine – the test was testing for the influenza, so this, at 4,000 people a day, in January of 2021 were dying of influenza and the CDC was labeling it, calling it “COVID”. “We know that 5G and the measures; the remdesevir, so that which is killing people by shutting down their kidneys. Everything that's been done: the masks, the shots, the isolation have caused the death and the destruction worldwide, not SARS-CoV-2.” Ann says, “So, essentially, COVID-19 is a marketing hype name to promote fear and get people running to the doctors to get these PCR tests, which are, of course, completely falsely-calibrated and they're not measuring COVID-19. So, has COVID-19 ever been isolated in a lab, then?” Dr Judy replies, “SARS-CoV-2 has been isolated from vero monkey kidney cells – in a lab, grown in –” Ann interrupts, “But not in people.” “Not from people-to-people,” Dr Judy says, “Not from a person with disease and sending it to another…It's a lab virus. All the variants are, they're sequences in a database and they always have been, since 2003 and SARS.” Ann asks, “OK, so these COVID vaccines – or what they're touting to be vaccines, these shots. I call them Clot Shots, Kill Shots. What are they, if they're not supposedly treating or preventing coronavirus?” “Well, they're synthetic, they're gene therapy, number one. They're not vaccines, they don't meet the legal or scientific definition of a vaccine, which is usually a piece of a virus or a bacteria or an ‘attenuated virus', means weakened, you took out the part that usually kills you and then you use that in a vaccine… “The simple answer is they are injecting in you a deadly synthetic virus. Synthetic virus. You are expressing the deadliest – the spike protein from HIV, the XMRV and SARS, so the three deadliest plandemics of our time. You're injecting the disease and you are shedding and spreading it, if your immune system cannot break down that synthetic lipid nanoparticle. “It's a synthetic virus. It's not a vaccine, never was, never was intended – and it's why we've been spreading the news.” Dr Judy says that the spike proteins in the flu and COVID vaccines are shed and spread and have been for years but the good news, she says is that whether you get a real virus or a synthetic virus, the treatment is the same: ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine and ozonated creams on your skin. “Keep your immune system healthy, don't ever wear a mask, because that cripples your own immune system, as you know from our book, ‘The Truth About Masks'… “The good news is, as long as people stop, right now getting any other shot, we can heal this world. Because any other shot is going to kill you and I mean a flu shot, because they have coronaviruses… “This is how they've driven this agenda for the past 30 years. They've weaponized SARS, they've weaponized Ebola – and that was 2014, when Tony Fauci released that virus on the Sierra Leone, on the Liberians, you know by way of a vaccine program. “You know, ‘We're gonna go over there and help you!' with Christian missionaries, and that's all described in our New York Times Bestseller, ‘Plague of Corruption', which came out April 14th, 2020. “I was first on the Epoch Times, April 8th, 2020, telling them all of this, showing them the Journal of Virology paper that showed hydroxychloroquine is a prophylactic treatment strategy for HIV, for SARS. And that means it's a vaccine! “Every 21 days, you got a booster shot, so the entire world could have been saved by hydroxychloroquine, just as in this book, ‘Called for Life', by Kent and Amber Brantly. He's the doctor that got infected with Ebola when Ebola was aerosolized. “And this was in the summer of 2014 and this was the cover-up by Tony Fauci of the William Thompson confession, after 15 years that MMR, giving Blacks and people of color, Hispanics, before the age of 3 had a 2-to-4 times greater risk of getting autism or severe neuro-developmental disease from that shot. “So yes, MMR in susceptible populations, three RNA viruses that'll cause autism. So what does Tony Fauci do? Oh, he released contagious Ebola on Black people, to take everybody's attention away, just like the game they played in COVID, to take everybody's attention away from the corruption… “We caught them. Not ‘we', Judy Mikovits, the Royal We: Children's Health Defense, The Highwire, the Informed Consent Action Network. Lawsuit, lawsuit, lawsuit. Proved that vaccines are not safe, have never been tested since 1989, not a single double-blind placebo controlled study, safe study has been done, as required by Federal Law, by the HHS. “That was the proof in the Fall of 2019…Was COVID started because they cloned the deadly H1N1 in 2005 – cloned – from people who died of the Spanish Flu? “It's all in here. And in our latest book, ‘Ending Plague', because we tell you the solutions are there. We tell you ozone therapy, we tell you Type 1 Interferon, we tell you Peptide T and immune modulation peptides could have stopped AIDS, could have stopped all of these diseases. “And the biggest thing our books tell you is that, ‘Never again get another injection' and you will live and we as a world will experience health.” The Public is Being Warned! Will They Try Smallpox Next or is This Another Distraction?   Vials Labeled ‘Smallpox' Found at Vaccine Research Facility in Pennsylvania The next pandemic is smallpox? - Strange Sounds     Several vials labeled “smallpox” have been found at a vaccine research facility in Pennsylvania, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday. “There is no indication that anyone has been exposed to the small number of frozen vials,” the CDC said in a statement emailed to CNN. https://youtu.be/gBmckTa4pC4 “The frozen vials labeled ‘Smallpox' were incidentally discovered by a laboratory worker while cleaning out a freezer in a facility that conducts vaccine research in Pennsylvania. CDC, its Administration partners, and law enforcement are investigating the matter and the vials' contents appear intact,” the CDC added. “The laboratory worker who discovered the vials was wearing gloves and a face mask. We will provide further details as they are available.” https://youtu.be/N2qosli3I8Q Smallpox, also known as variola, was declared eradicated in 1980 by the World Health Organization after a concerted global vaccination effort. Before that, the virus, which passes easily from person to person, infected 15 million people a year and killed about 30% of them. The last known outbreak in the US was in 1947. In 2014, employees of the National Institutes of Health found six vials of smallpox in an unused storage room as they packed up a lab at the NIH's Bethesda, Maryland, campus to move it. Two of the vials contained viable virus. The CDC said at the time there was no evidence anyone had been exposed to the contents of any of the vials. https://youtu.be/mFItWdsVnPg Governments have argued about whether to keep samples of the virus or to destroy all known copies. Most routine vaccination stopped in 1972 but military personnel and some researchers are still vaccinated. The CDC recommends that people get smallpox boosters every 3-5 years to stay protected although at least one study indicated vaccinated people may have at least some immunity for life Terri McGinley found this on twitter - November 13, 2021     BOOM!

Missy Pollock - 10/23/19 I dreamed about something having to do with blankets. My thought in the dream was, "They are going to do something like they did to the American Indians." Then I woke up. (What came to me is the DS is going to do something that is going to appear to be helping people but instead it will be to kill people. The dream is just a parable, they aren't going to repeat what was done before by using blankets infected with Smallpox to kill people. [They could just unleash Smallpox through a more modern method upon people.])     The Vaccine Was Designed to Kill the Parents So They Could Have ALL THE CHILDREN! Reader Posted Dream on Operation Disclosure | By Scottish Castle Sent to UBM by Diane Steva - 11/13/21 (David's notes in red) Is this dream actually a nightmare? Sometimes a dream will tell you the truth that no one wants to know. The reader said, "In a recent dream, I was walking down a long, wide, and tall hallway. The floor, walls and ceiling were all stone. I ‘knew' I was traversing the third-floor long hallway from the stairs to the huge balcony overlooking the large courtyard and the fields beyond in front of this majestic Scottish style castle. I was puzzled at first about the noises I heard coming from the balcony door that was about a hundred feet in front of me. The closer I got, the louder the noise got. As I approached the doorway and stepping onto the balcony, I finally realized it was the sound of children crying, thousands of children crying. As I stepped further onto that balcony, I was awestruck by the sheer number of children I saw. I saw children crying by the tens of thousands in the courtyard and immediate fields in front of me. Then I looked to both sides and realized this castle was surrounded by hundreds of thousands of crying children, from infants to teenagers.  I then heard a voice off my left shoulder, and HE (The Lord) said, “All their parents perished from the covid vaccine. They are all alone now.” (Not only are the DS injections causing children to lose their parents but they are also going to cause a mass die off and crippling and maiming of children. There will be great suffering for all those that survive these atrocities committed by the satanist DS who are determined to sacrifice as many as they can to their god satan in exchange for maintaining their world power and dominance.) I awoke at that point, thankfully. I laid there and re-ran the whole dream through my mind a couple of times. ... In another dream last night, I was back on that balcony and the children were still weeping and I heard that voice off my left shoulder from HIM (the Lord) and He said, “The vaccine was designed to kill the parents so they could have ALL THE CHILDREN!” (Is this why they are pushing the vaccines, to GET THE CHILDREN, ALL THE CHILDREN? You know who they are. We hear about them every day. They are the “Deep State; the Satanists.” or whatever label you choose to use for EVIL.)” (The DS satanists would definitely have access to many more children in the orphanages and the foster care system because of the mass die offs. Here is an interview that Stew Peters did with a young lady in her late 20's named Ally Carter who was introduced into this system at a very young age by her mother. It is titled, “Obama and Biden Raped Me: Powerful Elites, Celebs, Demonic Sex Abuse Ring." She is speaking out about her experiences and naming high profile names.)    Witches Using Witchcraft to Spread the Plague Isaac Payne - 10/27/21 In this dream I was in some type of brick, government building about three stories high. I was translated to the second floor of this building where there were a bunch of desks and offices that didn't have walls; they were all in an open concept style. This room also joined another room that looked like a ball room used to host events.   There were women working feverishly, answering calls at the desks, and running around delivering supplies to other desks, and collaborating with the other female workers. It was utter pandemonium on the second floor. I remember phones were ringing off the hook as everyone of them were just a bunch of busy bodies. (This reminds me of Eve's dream of the workers in the kingdom working feverishly on the second floor of the "kingdom warehouse" to round up all the dogs. Isaac's dream here is showing us the flip side of that dream. The enemies of God are also working feverishly to fight against God's kingdom and His elect.) As I continued to observe, I started seeing a few of these women workers slithering like snakes from one end of the room to the other. They slithered extremely fast and in straight lines using neither their hands nor feet. What they used to propel themselves while slithering was their long, black tongues. They would lick the floor as they slithered. (The only power they have is their witchcraft words and prayers.) At this point in time they could not see me as I was invisible to them. As I observed, I began to understand why everyone was working so feverishly in a group effort. They were in distress because the plague they previously released on the world did not take affect as they had hoped, and they were trying to conjure up the strength of this plague back to its original form. However, there was nothing they could do to bring back to life their original plan of mass destruction. (Currently Biden's vaccine mandate is being struck down and ruled against by OSHA and the 5th and 6th district courts. In the state of Tennessee the Governor just passed a bill making the vaccine mandates illegal. This is beginning to happen in many other states too.) I then saw the witches divert to plan B. In a panic, they began to speak cursing over the public and then created a potion and poured the contents into a squirt bottle. (I remember seeing a glimpse of the periodic table and seeing the chemicals added together to create something called Thylutine or Toluene something in that regards I'm not sure. Whatever it was it did start with a T.) (This represents the worse plague that they are planning to replace CV-19.) I watched the witches spread out individually as each of them went to their own designated area. The began to spray many doorknobs in high traffic areas. The intent of these precise locations was because of the population density. The witches knew people would come into contact with the doorknobs and spread this conjured plague. (It has been proven that they have created the vaccines to be able to penetrate the eyes, nasal membranes and even penetrate the skin through aerosolized particles.) As I watched the contents come into contact with the doorknobs it began to instantly rust and corrode the door handles and doorknobs. Afterwards, I watched as black mold began to grow on the surfaces of everything the plague touched. The scene changed and I was back on the second floor of the building and the joy of the Lord instantaneously fell upon me in the midst of these atrocities. I began to praise, speak in tongues, and jump up and down thanking God for the day he had made and the provisions he has given. (This is how God defeated the enemies of Jehoshaphat. He told them to send the praisers out ahead of the army and then God defeated the enemies of Israel for them through the praises of His people. 2Ch 20:14-25) This time the witches could see me as they were still slithering on the floor with their black tongues. I walked up to them with great boldness and started praising God in front of them.  I was saying, “This is the day the Lord has made! He is God and God alone!” I shouted many other praises in front of the witches. They instantly stopped their slithering and looked at me with total confusion.  One of the witches stood before me in shock. She had black purplish hair, pale skin and was wearing a long black dress, and a black pointed witch's hat. At this point, all their evil, feverish work halted. The entire floor of witches stood confounded and halted in their progress they had made spreading this potion or plague. (There is an angel named Jeruel who stands above me in the balcony at my house and he too goes out and fights for UBM with our praises.) I walked up to the head witch and began to praise God in front of her. She couldn't slither anymore because she was confused and her attention was on me. She had blonde hair that seemed dyed, pale skin, pale blue eyes, a long black tongue, and wearing all black garments. She seemed to be younger; in her late 20's.  I looked at her and said, “Blessed be the God of all the universe! The earth is his footstool!” I was shouting and clapping; jumping up and down and smiling as His peace was upon me surpassing all understanding. She began to yell and argue with me saying, “Your God is not more powerful than mine! No, he's not!” She was incoherently babbling the same things over and over.  I looked right at her and said, “My God created your god and at no point did He intend to share his power with your god! My God is Sovereign, and the beginning and the end has already been fulfilled! Your god has already been judged!” Then I said one last thing to her, “You will submit to Jesus!” She couldn't even function for disbelief, confusion, and amazement. (Their god is satan and he has already been defeated.) The second floor of witches could not pick up where they left off conjuring their evil plague because I was praising God uncontrollably! The praising of God also fixed all the doorknobs that were saturated with this potion and all door knobs became as brand new. Praising God halted all their wicked plans! Then I woke up. (Let's remember the power that is in our praises! The demons hate true praise that glorifies God. It will put them to flight every time!)   Be Anxious for Nothing Angelica Garza - 10/29/21 I felt to share what the Lord was saying to me when I was finishing up on a Word study on anxiety, He said, …Don't allow Satan to get you to be anxious. He wants to draw you in different directions, so that your heart, mind, will, and emotions are divided from God. Satan does not want you to give your full attention to our relationship, and your purpose. The time is short, and he will use your emotions to prevent you from bearing fruit, and from having faith and believing the truth of my word. If you're looking  at your emotions, (moved by them) you are walking by sight, and you will be blind. You will be unable to have peace, and unable to enter into my rest. You will always be double-minded, and unable to receive from me. This will ultimately cause you to be drawn away from me, alienated from my life, and be counted as an unbeliever. It is of the utmost importance that you be continually in prayer. Asking me for all that I said I would provide for you. For I care for you. I desire to have communion with you, to interface, to connect with you my daughter. I desire to hear your heart, and answer your requests. There is no shame in asking me for everything. I am the provider and sustainer of all life, and of my children. I desire that you show me thankfulness, for my great love for you. Praise me, worship me, I am your sustainer, I AM Supreme! Humble yourself as my creation. The creation cannot sustain itself. Cry out to me, and I will give you the life that you desire in me. Without me, all things are meaningless, and without purpose. I AM your life; I AM your breath. When you do this, your life will have meaning again. It will be whole and undivided.  Your mind will be sound, and you will not fear! You will be fully assured when you wake, when you sleep, when you go out, when you come in. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. No curse can come upon you. You will have perfect peace, when your mind is solely stayed on me. You will be confident in the knowledge of your salvation, and in the giftings I have given you. You will be content in all things, you will want for nothing, your will be filled by my spirit continually! You will be fully assured that I have called you, and of where you are, and of who you are. You will find your place in the body, and as my daughter (my son). You will prosper in all that you do, so long as you are looking to me to sustain you, to keep you.  The peace that you so desire, surpasses, and is above everything you can see with your eyes, and what you can feel with your senses and emotions. It is real, it is tangible (to the spirit man), it surrounds the one who trusts me beyond their own ability to comprehend what I have planned. I said, “lean not on your own understanding” because it is weak, and limited. I gave you your mental capacity, and designed it. Should not the creation submit to its designer, it creator? My grace is sufficient for you. Your weakness, is my Glory. I am glorified in your weakness. If you had no weakness, you would not need me. How soon am I forgotten by my children when they have strength. Glory in your weaknesses, for in it, my power is shown to all! Guard your heart. Guard your thoughts, mind, submit your will, and emotions to me. No don't exchange my truth for lies. Satan wants to invade your mind, and destroy the fruit that my Son paid for you to have. Is it not precious? Is not my nature longed for and most beloved? Does it not bring peace? Does it not bring joy? There is none like me! Should it not be guarded with truth, and faith? Fight the good fight of faith, and lay hold of life eternal. War against the enemy, and do not submit your mind, will and emotions to him, or he will become your master. If you believe me at my word, then you will receive my peace, you will not be distracted with the things that I said I would do for you, if you let me. In my Son, is peace. He is the Prince of Peace, my beloved Son. Stay connected to the Vine. Please prepare yourselves, friends and family for this plague. We make zero money on these books.

Photo:   Logo from the Second International Eugenics Conference, 1921, depicting eugenics as a tree which unites a variety of different fields @Batchelorshow The Orphans of Davenport: Eugenics, the Great Depression, and the War over Children's Intelligence, by Marilyn Brookwood.   https://www.amazon.com/Orphans-Davenport-Depression-Childrens-Intelligence/dp/1631494686 The fascinating―and eerily timely―tale of the forgotten, Depression-era psychologists who launched the modern science of childhood development. “Doomed from birth” was how the psychologist Harold Skeels described two toddler girls at the Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home in Davenport, Iowa, in 1934. Their IQ scores, added together, totaled just 81. Following prevailing eugenic beliefs of the times, Skeels and his colleague Marie Skodak assumed that the girls had inherited their parents' low intelligence and were therefore unfit for adoption. The girls were sent to an institution for the “feebleminded” to be cared for by “moron” women. To Skeels and Skodak's astonishment, under the women's care, the children's IQ scores became normal.  Now considered one of the most important scientific findings of the twentieth century, the discovery that environment shapes children's intelligence was also one of the most fiercely contested―and its origin story has never been told. In The Orphans of Davenport, the psychologist and esteemed historian Marilyn Brookwood chronicles how a band of young psychologists in 1930s Iowa shattered the nature-versus-nurture debate and overthrew long-accepted racist and classist views of childhood development. Transporting readers to a rural Iowa devastated by dust storms and economic collapse, Brookwood reveals just how profoundly unlikely it was for this breakthrough to come from the Iowa Child Welfare Research Station. Funded by the University of Iowa and the Rockefeller Foundation, and modeled on America's experimental agricultural stations, the Iowa Station was virtually unknown, a backwater compared to the renowned psychology faculties of Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton. Despite the challenges they faced, the Iowa psychologists replicated increased intelligence in thirteen more “retarded” children. When Skeels published their incredible work, America's leading psychologists―eugenicists all―attacked and condemned his conclusions. The loudest critic was Lewis M. Terman, who advocated for forced sterilization of low-intelligence women and whose own widely accepted IQ test was threatened by the Iowa research. Terman and his opponents insisted that intelligence was hereditary, and their prestige ensured that the research would be ignored for decades. Remarkably, it was not until the 1960s that a new generation of psychologists accepted environment's role in intelligence and helped launch the modern field of developmental neuroscience. Drawing on prodigious archival research, Brookwood reclaims the Iowa researchers as intrepid heroes, and movingly recounts the stories of the orphans themselves, many of whom later credited the psychologists with giving them the opportunity to forge successful lives. A radiant story of the power and promise of science to better the lives of us all, The Orphans of Davenport unearths an essential history at a moment when race science is dangerously resurgent. 16-page black-and-white insert

Study: Sustainable eating is cheaper and healthier Oxford University, November 11, 2021 Oxford University research has today revealed that, in countries such as the US, the UK, Australia and across Western Europe, adopting a vegan, vegetarian, or flexitarian diet could slash your food bill by up to one-third. The study, which compared the cost of seven sustainable diets to the current typical diet in 150 countries, using food prices from the World Bank's International Comparison Program, was published in The Lancet Planetary Health. (next) Meta-analysis concludes resveratrol beneficially modulates glycemic control in diabetics Zagazig University and Suez Canal University (Egypt), October 29 2021.  Findings from a meta-analysis of clinical trials published in Medicina Clinica (Barcelona) revealed an association between supplementing with resveratrol and improvements in glycemic control. “This systematic review and meta-analysis is the first to consider resveratrol's efficacy on glycemic and cardiometabolic parameters in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).” (next) Exercise linked to better mental health Kaiser Permanente Research, November 11, 2021 Kaiser Permanente research published in Preventive Medicine showed people who exercised more during the initial lockdown period of the COVID-19 pandemic experienced less anxiety and depression than those who didn't exercise. It also showed that people who spent more time outdoors typically experienced lower levels of anxiety and depression than those who stayed inside. (next) Bedtime linked with heart health University of Exeter (UK), November 9, 2021 Going to sleep between 10:00 and 11:00 pm is associated with a lower risk of developing heart disease compared to earlier or later bedtimes, according to a study published today in European Heart Journal—Digital Health, a journal of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). "While we cannot conclude causation from our study, the results suggest that early or late bedtimes may be more likely to disrupt the body clock, with adverse consequences for cardiovascular health." (NEXT) Garlic compounds may boost cardio health indirectly via gut microbiota National Taiwan University, November 6 2021 Allicin from garlic may prevent the metabolism of unabsorbed L-carnitine or choline into TMAO, a compound linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, says a new study. TMAO – or trimethylamine N-oxide – has been known to be generated from dietary carnitine through metabolism of gut microbiota, and was recently reported to be an “important gut microbiota-dependent metabolite to cause cardiovascular diseases.”  New data indicated that carnitine-fed lab mice showed a “remarkable increase in plasma TMAO levels”, compared with lab mice fed a control (no carnitine). However, when allicin supplements were provided with the carnitine diet, TMAO levels were significantly reduced.   (NEXT) Drug used to prevent miscarriage increases risk of cancer in offspring University of Texas Health Science Center, November 9, 2021 Exposure in utero to a drug used to prevent miscarriage can lead to an increased risk of developing cancer, according to researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston  The drug, 17α-hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17-OHPC), is a synthetic progestogen that was frequently used by women in the 1950s and 1960s, and is still prescribed to women today to help prevent preterm birth.  (OTHER NEWS NEXT) 2,433 Dead Babies in VAERS as Another Study Shows mRNA Shots Not Safe for Pregnant Women by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News, November 7, 2021 There have now been 2,433 fetal deaths recorded in VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) from pregnant women who have been injected with one of the COVID-19 shots. The vast majority of these have been from the Pfizer shot (1,862 deaths) and the Moderna shot (656 deaths.) There have been more fetal deaths in the past 11 months following COVID-19 shots than there have been for the past 30+ years following ALL vaccines (2,198 – Source.) Last month (October, 2021) the New England Journal of Medicine admitted that the original study used to justify the CDC and the FDA in recommending the shots to pregnant women was flawed. (Source.) Since then, researchers in New Zealand have conducted a new study on the original data, and concluded: A re-analysis of these figures indicates a cumulative incidence of spontaneous abortion ranging from 82% (104/127) to 91% (104/114), 7–8 times higher than the original authors' results. (Source.) And yet, the CDC and FDA still continue to recommend the shots for pregnant women, even though a correct analysis on the original data shows that 82% to 91% of pregnant women will suffer miscarriages if their unborn child is less than 20 weeks old. (Source.) VAERS is a passive system that is severely under reported. The CDC and FDA have never conducted a study to determine what this under-reported factor is, but independent scientists have, and we have previously published the analysis conducted by Dr. Jessica Rose, who has determined that a conservative under-reported factor would be X41. See: STUDY: Government's Own Data Reveals that at Least 150,000 Probably DEAD in U.S. Following COVID-19 Vaccines This means that there have probably been at least 99,753 fetal deaths following COVID-19 injections so far. Here is a video report we made on this last month with some very unfortunate gruesome examples of what these shots are doing to unborn babies. 1,969 Fetal Deaths Recorded Following COVID-19 Shots but Criminal CDC Recommends Pregnant Women Get the Shot UPDATE – November 7, 2021 PM A couple of hours after publishing this article, a video that has been circulating on the Internet of an interview with a Funeral Director in the UK became known to me. He has been in practice for over 3 years and is identified as “Wesley,” and was interviewed by a group called “Resistance GB.” He claims that last fall was one the slowest periods of seeing deaths for all funeral directors, but when the COVID-19 shots were introduced, deaths started dramatically increasing. It started with the elderly, but then by April they were seeing large numbers of people in their 30s and 40s. Many of them were dying of myocarditis. Now, they are seeing unprecedented numbers of newborn babies, and they are piling up in hospital refrigerators. Some are full term, some are pre-term, he claims. The UK originally recommended that pregnant women and nursing mothers should NOT get the experimental COVID shots, but like the CDC in the U.S., they eventually changed their recommendation to encourage pregnant women to get the shots. (NEXT) An ethical analysis of vaccinating children against COVID-19: benefits, risks, and issues of global health equity Johns Hopkins University, Oxford-Johns Hopkins Global Infectious Disease Ethics Collaborative, Wageningen University - The Netherlands, University of Oxford, Abstract We argue that it is currently unclear whether routine COVID-19 vaccination of healthy children is ethically justified in most contexts, given the minimal direct benefit that COVID-19 vaccination provides to children, the potential for rare risks to outweigh these benefits and undermine vaccine confidence, and substantial evidence that COVID-19 vaccination confers adequate protection to risk groups, such as older adults, without the need to vaccinate children. We conclude that child COVID-19 vaccination in wealthy communities before adults in poor communities worldwide is ethically unacceptable and consider how policy deliberations might evolve in light of future developments. (NEXT) What's Driving Global Deforestation? Organized Crime, Beef, Soy, Palm Oil and Wood Products Jennifer Devine,  Counterpunch, November 17, 2021 Every year the world loses an estimated 25 million acres (10 million hectares) of forest, an area larger than the state of Indiana. Nearly all of it is in the tropics. From my research on social and environmental issues in Latin America, I know that four consumer goods are responsible for the majority of global deforestation: beef, soy, palm oil, and wood pulp and paper products. Together these commodities are responsible for the loss of nearly 12 million acres (5 million hectares) annually. There's also a fifth, less publicized key driver: organized crime, including illegal drug trafficking. The dominant role of beef Among major products that promote deforestation, beef is in a class by itself. Beef production is now estimated to be the biggest driver of deforestation worldwide, accounting for 41% of global forest losses. In the Amazon alone, cattle ranching accounts for 80% of deforestation. From 2000 to 2011, beef production emitted nearly 200 times more greenhouse gases than soy, and 60 times more than oil palm in tropical countries with high deforestation rates. Soy and palm oil: Ubiquitous ingredients Together, soy and palm oil drive nearly 10% of deforestation annually – almost 2.5 million acres (1 million hectares). Clearing land for palm oil plantations fuels large-scale rainforest destruction in Indonesia and Malaysia, where most of the world's palm oil is produced. Palm oil is the most commonly produced, consumed and traded vegetable oil. Some 60% of the 66 million tons produced globally every year is used to produce energy in the form of biofuel, power and heat. About 40% is used for food, animal feed and chemical products. Palm oil is an ingredient in half of all products found at the supermarket, including margarine, shampoos, frozen pizza and detergents. Soy production has doubled globally in the past 20 years. Nearly 80% of global soy is fed to cows, chickens, pigs and farmed fish. This demand reflects the tripling of global meat production over the past 50 years. Wood products Wood products are responsible for about 5% of annual global deforestation, or about 1.2 million acres (500,000 hectares) yearly. Wood is widely used for home construction and furniture, and also as a pulp source for paper and fabric. And in low-income nations and rural areas, it's an important fuel source for heating and cooking. The three largest paper-producing countries are the U.S., Canada and China. Illegal deforestation and organized crime Another industry plays an important role, especially in tropical forests: organized crime. Large, lucrative industries offer opportunities to move and launder money; as a result, in many parts of the world, deforestation is driven by the drug trade. In South America and Central America, drug trafficking organizations are the vanguard of deforestation. Drug traffickers are illegally logging forests in the Amazon and hiding cocaine in timber shipments to Europe. In my research, I have analyzed how traffickers illegally log and raise cattle in protected areas in Central America to launder money and claim drug smuggling territory. Other scholars estimate that 30% to 60% of deforestation in the region is “narco-deforestation.” Forest Trends analysis, exports tied to illegal deforestation are worth US$61 billion annually and are responsible for 25% of total global tropical deforestation. (NEXT) ‘This Must Not Happen': If Unhalted, Permian Basin Fracking Will Unleash 40 Billion Tons of CO2 by 2050 As activists at the COP26 summit continue to denounce the “massive” gap between wealthy governments' lofty rhetoric and their woefully inadequate plans for addressing the climate emergency, a new analysis of projected extraction in the Permian Basin in the U.S. Southwest exposes the extent to which oil and gas executives' refusal to keep fossil fuels in the ground puts humanity's future in jeopardy. “While climate science tells us that we must consume 40% less oil in 2030, Permian producers plan to grow production more than 50%.” Released Tuesday by Oil Change International, Earthworks, and the Center for International Environmental Law, the second chapter of The Permian Basin Climate Bomb warns that if the drilling and fracking boom that has turned the Permian Basin into “the world's single most prolific oil and gas field” over the past decade is allowed to persist unabated for the next three decades, it will generate nearly 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide by mid-century. “With global markets flush with Permian oil and gas, it can only be harder to steer the world's economy toward clean energy.” “While climate science tells us that we must consume 40% less oil in 2030, Permian producers plan to grow production more than 50%” from 2021 to 2030, said Stockman. “This must not happen.” “If left unchecked,” the report notes, “the Permian could continue to produce huge amounts of oil, gas, and gas liquids for decades to come. With global markets flush with Permian oil and gas, it can only be harder to steer the world's economy toward clean energy.” (NEXT) Wall Street's Takeover of Nature Advances with Launch of New Asset Class By Whitney Webb A project of the multilateral development banking system, the Rockefeller Foundation and the New York Stock Exchange recently created a new asset class that will put, not just the natural world, but the processes underpinning all life, up for sale under the guise of promoting “sustainability.” Last month, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) announced it had developed a new asset class and accompanying listing vehicle meant “to preserve and restore the natural assets that ultimately underpin the ability for there to be life on Earth.” Called a natural asset company, or NAC, the vehicle will allow for the formation of specialized corporations “that hold the rights to the ecosystem services produced on a given chunk of land, services like carbon sequestration or clean water.” These NACs will then maintain, manage and grow the natural assets they commodify, with the end of goal of maximizing the aspects of that natural asset that are deemed by the company to be profitable. Though described as acting like “any other entity” on the NYSE, it is alleged that NACs “will use the funds to help preserve a rain forest or undertake other conservation efforts, like changing a farm's conventional agricultural production practices.” Yet, as explained towards the end of this article, even the creators of NACs admit that the ultimate goal is to extract near-infinite profits from the natural processes they seek to quantify and then monetize. NYSE COO Michael Blaugrund alluded to this when he said the following regarding the launch of NACs: “Our hope is that owning a natural asset company is going to be a way that an increasingly broad range of investors have the ability to invest in something that's intrinsically valuable, but, up to this point, was really excluded from the financial markets.” Framed with the lofty talk of “sustainability” and “conservation”, media reports on the move in outlets like Fortune couldn't avoid noting that NACs open the doors to “a new form of sustainable investment” which “has enthralled the likes of BlackRock CEO Larry Fink over the past several years even though there remain big, unanswered questions about it.” Fink, one of the world's most powerful financial oligarchs, is and has long been a corporate raider, not an environmentalist, and his excitement about NACs should give even its most enthusiastic proponents pause if this endeavor was really about advancing conservation, as is being claimed. How to Create a NAC The creation and launch of NACs has been two years in the making and saw the NYSE team up with the Intrinsic Exchange Group (IEG), in which the NYSE itself holds a minority stake. IEG's three investors are the Inter-American Development Bank, the Latin America-focused branch of the multilateral development banking system that imposes neoliberal and neo-colonalist agendas through debt entrapment; the Rockefeller Foundation, the foundation of the American oligarch dynasty whose activities have long been tightly enmeshed with Wall Street; and Aberdare Ventures, a venture capital firm chiefly focused on the digital healthcare space. Notably, the IADB and the Rockefeller Foundation are closely tied to the related pushes for Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and biometric Digital IDs. The IEG's mission focuses on “pioneering a new asset class based on natural assets and the mechanism to convert them to financial capital.” “These assets,” IEG states, make “life on Earth possible and enjoyable…They include biological systems that provide clean air, water, foods, medicines, a stable climate, human health and societal potential.” Put differently, NACs will not only allow ecosystems to become financial assets, but the rights to “ecosystem services”, or the benefits people receive from nature as well. These include food production, tourism, clean water, biodiversity, pollination, carbon sequestration and much more. IEG is currently partnering with Costa Rica's government to pilot its NAC efforts within that country. Costa Rica's Minister of Environment and Energy, Andrea Meza Murillo, has claimed that the pilot project with IEG “will deepen the economic analysis of giving nature its economic value, as well as to continue mobilizing financial flows to conservation.” With NACs, the NYSE and IEG are now putting the totality of nature up for sale. While they assert that doing so will “transform our economy to one that is more equitable, resilient and sustainable”, it's clear that the coming “owners” of nature and natural processes will be the only real beneficiaries. Per the IEG, NACs first begin with the identification of a natural asset, such as a forest or lake, which is then quantified using specific protocols. Such protocols have already been developed by related groups like the Capitals Coalition, which is partnered with several of IEG's partners as well as the World Economic Forum and various coalitions of multinational corporations. Then, a NAC is created and the structure of the company decides who has the rights to that natural asset's productivity as well as the rights to decide how that natural asset is managed and governed. Lastly, a NAC is “converted” into financial capital by launching an initial public offering on a stock exchange, like the NYSE. This last stage “generates capital to manage the natural asset” and the fluctuation of its price on the stock exchange “signals the value of its natural capital.” However, the NAC and its employees, directors and owners are not necessarily the owners of the natural asset itself following this final step. Instead, as IEG notes, the NAC is merely the issuer while the potential buyers of the natural asset the NAC represents can include: institutional investors, private investors, individuals and institutions, corporations, sovereign wealth funds and multilateral development banks. Thus, asset management firms that essentially already own much of the world, like Blackrock, could thus become owners of soon-to-be monetized natural processes, natural resources and the very foundations of natural life itself. Both the NYSE and IEG have marketed this new investment vehicle as being aimed at generating funds that will go back to conservation or sustainability efforts. However, on the IEG's website, it notes that the goal is really endless profit from natural processes and ecosystems that were previously deemed to be part of “the commons”, i.e. the cultural and natural resources accessible to all members of a society, including natural materials such as air, water, and a habitable earth. Per the IEG, “as the natural asset prospers, providing a steady or increasing flow of ecosystem services, the company's equity should appreciate accordingly providing investment returns. Shareholders and investors in the company through secondary offers, can take profit by selling shares. These sales can be gauged to reflect the increase in capital value of the stock, roughly in-line with its profitability, creating cashflow based on the health of the company and its assets.” Researcher and journalist Cory Morningstar has strongly disagreed with the approach being taken by NYSE/IEG and views NACs as a system that will only exacerbate the corporate predation of nature, despite claims to the contrary. Morningstar has described NACs as “Rockefeller et al. letting the markets dictate what in nature has value – and what does not. Yet, it's not for capitalist institutions and global finance to decide what life has value. Ecosystems are not ‘assets.' Biological communities exist for their own purposes, not ours.” A New Way to Loot The ultimate goal of NACs is not sustainability or conservation – it is the financialization of nature, i.e. turning nature into a commodity that can be used to keep the current, corrupt Wall Street economy booming under the guise of protecting the environment and preventing its further degradation. Indeed, IEG makes this clear when they note that “the opportunity” of NACs lies not in their potential to improve environmental well-being or sustainability, but in the size of this new asset class, which they term “Nature's Economy.” Indeed, while the asset classes of the current economy are value at approximately $512 trillion, the asset classes unlocked by NACs are significantly larger at $4,000 trillion (i.e. $4 quadrillion). Thus, NACs open up a new feeding ground for predatory Wall Street banks and financial institutions that will allow them to not just dominate the human economy, but the entire natural world. In the world currently being constructed by these and related entities, where even freedom is being re-framed not as a right but “a service,” the natural processes on which life depends are similarly being re-framed as assets, which will have owners. Those “owners” will ultimately have the right, in this system, to dictate who gets access to clean water, to clean air, to nature itself and at what cost. According to Cory Morningstar, one of the other aims of creating “Nature's Economy” and neatly packaging it for Wall Street via NACs is to drastically advance massive land grab efforts made by Wall Street and the oligarch class in recent years. This includes the recent land grabs made by Wall Street firms as well as billionaire “philanthropists” like Bill Gates during the COVID crisis. However, the land grabs facilitated through the development of NACs will largely target indigenous communities in the developing world. As Morningstar notes: “The public launch of NACs strategically preceded the fifteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, the biggest biodiversity conference in a decade. Under the pretext of turning 30% of the globe into “protected areas”, the largest global land grab in history is underway. Built on a foundation of white supremacy, this proposal will displace hundreds of millions, furthering the ongoing genocide of Indigenous peoples. The tragic irony is this: while Indigenous peoples represent less than 5% of the global population, they support approximately 80% of all biodiversity.“ IEG, in discussing NACs, tellingly notes that proceeds from a NAC's IPO can be used for the acquisition of more land by its controlling entities or used to boost the budgets or funds of those who receive the capital from the IPO. This is a far cry from the NYSE/IEG sales pitch that NACs are “different” because their IPOs will be used to “preserve and protect” natural areas. The climate change panic that is now rising to the take the place of COVID-19 panic will surely be used to savvily market NACs and similar tactics as necessary to save the planet, but – rest assured – NACs are not a move to save the planet, but a move to enable the same interests responsible for the current environmental crises to usher in a new era where their predatory exploitation reaches new heights that were previously unimaginable.

In March 1925, the state of Tennessee passed the Butler Bill, which prohibited the teaching of evolution or anything but Divine Creation in schools. In response, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sought a test case and found one in Dayton, Tennessee science teacher John Scopes. During the eight-day trial, John Scopes pleaded not guilty to charges of violating the Butler Bill. He was represented by the ACLU and legendary trial attorney Clarence Darrow, who argued that the Butler Bill was unconstitutional and impeded basic freedom of religion rights. The special counsel for the prosecution was iconic American orator William Jennings Bryan, a political titan, former Secretary of State, celebrated speech maker and acclaimed U.S. Congressman who served as a major force behind the creation of the Butler Bill. The legal battle between Darrow and Bryan was truly an epic showdown, pitting two of the nation's best orators against one another in a court of law. On July 21, 1925, the jury returned a guilty verdict after nine minutes of deliberation, and Judge John Raulston ruled that John Scopes was ordered to pay a $100 fine for violating the Butler Bill. The verdict was overturned on a technicality at the Tennessee Supreme Court on January 15, 1927. In today's episode, learn why the Scopes trial is considered one of the most important cases in 20th century America and how it became the first trial to be broadcast live on the radio.

Their IQ scores, added together, totaled just 81. Following prevailing eugenic beliefs of the times, Skeels and his colleague Marie Skodak assumed that the girls had inherited their parents' low intelligence and were therefore unfit for adoption. The girls were sent to an institution for the “feebleminded” to be cared for by “moron” women. To Skeels and Skodak's astonishment, under the women's care, the children's IQ scores became normal.  Now considered one of the most important scientific findings of the twentieth century, the discovery that environment shapes children's intelligence was also one of the most fiercely contested―and its origin story has never been told. In The Orphans of Davenport, the psychologist and esteemed historian Marilyn Brookwood chronicles how a band of young psychologists in 1930s Iowa shattered the nature-versus-nurture debate and overthrew long-accepted racist and classist views of childhood development. Transporting readers to a rural Iowa devastated by dust storms and economic collapse, Brookwood reveals just how profoundly unlikely it was for this breakthrough to come from the Iowa Child Welfare Research Station. Funded by the University of Iowa and the Rockefeller Foundation, and modeled on America's experimental agricultural stations, the Iowa Station was virtually unknown, a backwater compared to the renowned psychology faculties of Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton. Despite the challenges they faced, the Iowa psychologists replicated increased intelligence in thirteen more “retarded” children. When Skeels published their incredible work, America's leading psychologists―eugenicists all―attacked and condemned his conclusions. The loudest critic was Lewis M. Terman, who advocated for forced sterilization of low-intelligence women and whose own widely accepted IQ test was threatened by the Iowa research. Terman and his opponents insisted that intelligence was hereditary, and their prestige ensured that the research would be ignored for decades. Remarkably, it was not until the 1960s that a new generation of psychologists accepted environment's role in intelligence and helped launch the modern field of developmental neuroscience. Drawing on prodigious archival research, Brookwood reclaims the Iowa researchers as intrepid heroes, and movingly recounts the stories of the orphans themselves, many of whom later credited the psychologists with giving them the opportunity to forge successful lives. A radiant story of the power and promise of science to better the lives of us all, The Orphans of Davenport unearths an essential history at a moment when race science is dangerously resurgent. 16-page black-and-white insert

"'I came to see the mountains as an outpouring of our modern lives,' Roy writes, 'of the endless chase for our desires to fill us.' Readers of Behind the Beautiful Forevers will be drawn to this harrowing portrait." — Publishers Weekly Claudia Cragg (@claudiacragg) speaks here with journalist Saumya Roy about her new non-fiction work, .  All of Mumbai's possessions and memories come to die at the Deonar garbage mountains. Towering at the outskirts of the city, the mountains are covered in a faint smog from trash fires. Over time, as wealth brought Bollywood knock offs, fast food and plastics to Mumbaikars, a small, forgotten community of migrants and rag-pickers came to live at the mountains' edge, making a living by re-using, recycling and re-selling.   Among them is Farzana Ali Shaikh, a tall, adventurous girl who soon becomes one of the best pickers in her community. Over time, her family starts to fret about Farzana's obsessive relationship to the garbage. Like so many in her community, Farzana, made increasingly sick by the trash mountains, is caught up in the thrill of discovery—because among the broken glass, crushed cans, or even the occasional dead baby, there's a lingering chance that she will find a treasure to lift her family's fortunes.   As Farzana enters adulthood, her way of life becomes more precarious. Mumbai is pitched as a modern city, emblematic of the future of India, forcing officials to reckon with closing the dumping grounds, which would leave the waste pickers more vulnerable than ever.   In a narrative instilled with superstition and magical realism, Saumya Roy crafts a modern parable exploring the consequences of urban overconsumption. A moving testament to the impact of fickle desires, Castaway Mountain reveals that when you own nothing, you know where true value lies: in family, community and love.        Saumya Roy is a journalist and activist based in Mumbai. She has written for Forbes India magazine, Mint newspaper, Outlook magazine, wsj.com, thewire.in and Bloomberg News among others. In 2010 she co- founded Vandana Foundation to support the livelihoods of Mumbai's poorest micro entrepreneurs by giving small, low interest loans. She has received fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio Center, Blue Mountain Center, Carey Institute for Global Good and Sangam House to write this book. She attended a conference on environmental humanities at KTH, Stockholm in 2017 to share her research, and contributed a chapter to Dharavi: The Cities Within/ (HarperCollins, 2013), an anthology of essays on Asia's largest slum. Roy was a fellow of the National Foundation of India in 2012, and has Masters Degrees in journalism from Northwestern University and Mumbai's Sophia College, where she teaches magazine writing.

Many major global companies are progressing on their own sustainability roadmaps as we proceed into the 'Climate Decade.' But the science is clear that we must do more and quickly to avoid the worst-case consequences of climate change and take advantage of the economic opportunity offered by the transition to a zero-carbon economy. Supply chain transparency and working closely with suppliers to reduce scope three emissions will be a challenge for companies with complex supply chains. Tessa Lee, Senior Corporate Engagement Manager at the Climate Group, joins us to discuss how going public with a net-zero or other supply chain sustainability pledge needn't become a stick for your company to beat itself with, rather, an enabling driver of your sustainability goals.   About the Speaker Tessa Lee is the Senior Corporate Engagement Manager in the Climate Group's New York offices.

In a meeting hosted by the Rockefeller Foundation in Italy in 2007, the term impact investing was coined. Yet seven years prior to that, in 2001, Sir Ronald Cohen (just Ronald Cohen at the time) was requested by the UK Treasury to establish the Social Investment Task Force (SITF). The SITF was tasked with exploring the ways in which the UK could create wealth, spur economic growth, and improve the lives of its most vulnerable people at the same time. It was his work here where he and his colleagues developed much of their thinking on impact investing. Only a year after establishing the SITF, Ronnie (as he prefers to be called) would become Sir Ronnie, not for his work in impact investing but for his three decades of work essentially bringing venture capital to the UK. Ronnie was only 26 years old when he co-founded Apax Partners, a private equity firm that would grow to manage $50B in assets with offices across the globe. By 2013, then Prime Minister David Cameron asked Ronnie to lead the G8 Social Investment Task Force (G8T) in order to "catalyze a global market in social impact investment." Not long after that he was then asked by the British Government to lead an effort to expand the G8T further globally and resulted in him establishing The Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG) in 2015. During this time, Sir Ronnie also contributed to creating the world's first Social Impact Bond which aimed to reduce recidivism rates at the Peterborough Penitentiary in the UK. He and his colleague's findings on SIBs were articulated in a now-famous report "Impact Investment: The Invisible Heart of the Markets" which kicked off a movement to spread the idea of impact investing across the world. All of that amounts to one hell of an impressive career by any standard but especially for a refugee who fled Egypt as a result of the Suez Crisis in the 1950s. At 11 yrs old, Ronnie and his parents arrived in the UK with just a single suitcase each and Ronnie clutching his precious stamp collection in his arms.

Meet Caroline Wanjiku, cofounder of Daproim Africa, and Victor Basta, CEO of DAI Magister, and learn how one intrepid Kenyan entrepreneur overcame adversity to transform her bootstrapped social enterprise into a strategic acquisition.Caroline's entrepreneurial journey began like most other ambitious founders. She and her business partner (and eventual husband) created Daproim in 2006 with a vision to make Kenya a destination for IT outsourcing. A chance encounter with the Rockefeller Foundation in 2011 led to a grant and a realization that the business they were building was also a social enterprise. Caroline explains:“We were employing friends, women, mainly people who were from underprivileged backgrounds. So, when we bumped into Rockefeller Foundation they were quick to tell us that what you are doing is actually called social impact. You know, we didn't have a word for it until then.”A few years and 500 employees later, a tragic turn of events changed everything. On the day she was giving birth to her first child, her husband and co-founder also entered the hospital with a life-threatening disease. Caroline had no choice but to take on the role of CEO.“My first reaction was like, I can't do this. And one of my mentors came and visited me and told me, "You know what? You need to do it for your child. Find a way to gather yourself, take as much time as you need, but the goal is to make sure that this business continues."Victor Basta also believes in the power of mentorship, especially in an ecosystem like Africa where “hardly anybody's done an exit...the playbook hasn't been written.” Victor helps fast-growing, tech-enabled businesses like Daiprom do everything from raising capital to acquisitions. And when Caroline was approached by StepWise, an American outsourcing company, she sought out mentors again to help her understand the deal on the table and keep her emotions in check.Victor advises “don't talk to very many people about it because you are going to be in sell mode because of the lack of experience. It would be useful to be able to find somebody in your broader orbit that has actually gone through it. You know, they may help you at least avoid going what I would call guardrail to guardrail with your emotions.”In February 2020, the day before the lockdown, StepWise acquired Daproim. But it wasn't all smooth sailing and Caroline admits to mistakes and misunderstandings, namely assuming that she would remain as CEO after the acquisition.“So in my mind, I thought automatically I'd remain as CEO. So, I didn't have any doubts. I didn't think I needed to bring it up until later. I'd advise anyone to just make sure you talk about everything and not to assume.”When Caroline eventually decided to move on from Daproim, it was not without the advice of her trusted mentors. Listen to Caroline's amazing story and Victor's insights to learn how to prepare for the unexpected and avoid potential pitfalls—before, during and after an acquisition.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

In his new book, “Middle Class Shanghai: Reshaping U.S.-China Engagement,” Brookings expert Cheng Li, who directs the John L. Thornton China Center at Brookings, argues that American policymakers should not overlook the dynamism and diversity in present-day China, exemplified by the city of Shanghai and its expansive and cosmopolitan middle-class culture. Moreover, Li argues, Washington should neither underestimate the role or the strength of the Chinese middle class, nor alienate this force with policies that push it toward nationalism to the detriment of both countries and the global community. On this episode, Brookings Institution Press director Bill Finan talks with Li about his book, a conversation in which Li takes us from his growing up in Shanghai during the Red Terror of the Cultural Revolution; to a Chinese middle class today that enjoys the markers of a middle-class lifestyle; and even to the avant-garde art scene in that city. Also on this episode, Senior Fellow John McArthur, director of the Center for Sustainable Development, explains the “17 Rooms” initiative, an experiment launched by Brookings and The Rockefeller Foundation to stimulate new forms of discussion and action for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

I Used To Be Antifa What Is Identity Socialism?   China: Friend or Foe? https://youtu.be/oSE35VnnOeI PragerU 2.89M subscribers With the help of the United States and other western powers, China has become an economic powerhouse. The idea was that prosperity would persuade China to align its interests with the other free nations of the world. But that’s not what happened. Former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley explains why. Script: Communist China is the biggest challenge America faces on the world stage. It’s a challenge that we’ve ignored for far too long. For decades, United States leaders in both parties encouraged deep ties with China. The idea was that China would move away from Communism and embrace freedom and democracy. This idea was wrong. The Chinese Communist Party is now more oppressive at home and aggressive abroad than ever before. It uses every tool at its disposal to strengthen itself while weakening America. Let’s start with trade. Trade is a fundamental, and fundamentally beneficial, part of our economy. But not all trade with all trading partners is the same. The father of capitalism, Adam Smith, observed in The Wealth of Nations that Great Britain’s command of the seas must trump trade benefits. “Defense,” he wrote, “is of much more importance than opulence.” America has long understood this truth. During the Cold War, we limited trade with the Soviet Union. We didn’t want the communist country to use our innovation and economy against us and our allies. Now it’s time to take a similar approach with China. For anyone who might have doubted the need for this, the coronavirus pandemic has provided a very loud wake-up call. As Americans rushed to purchase medical equipment, masks, and gloves, it became obvious we had outsourced a lot of what we needed to China. We had become dependent on them for not only PPE but many of our everyday medicines. Making America dependent on China for critical supplies didn’t happen by accident. It’s part of a strategic plan.  China’s Communist rulers have manipulated supply chains to China’s advantage, often illegally, to give it an edge over America and the free world. It wasn’t supposed to go this way. As it gathered economic strength, China became less free and more aggressive. Now we face an expansionist Communist China whose economic power vastly exceeds anything the Soviets could ever muster. China is using its growing economic clout to advance its authoritarian vision. The country’s rulers are determined to control or eliminate anyone who stands in their way. This explains why China’s Communist rulers ethnically cleanse their minorities. They have forced at least a million Muslim Uighurs into concentration camps. It’s why they impose a surveillance state on their own citizens. Why they have moved to strip freedom from Hong Kong. Why they threaten to take over Taiwan. Why China’s spies have infiltrated American college campuses and classrooms. Why China has stolen intellectual property from our most innovative companies. And why they seek to dominate the United Nations and international agencies like the World Health Organization. The simple fact is that Communist China will not stop. This is why America must respond — and lead. That starts with American resolve. To stand up to China, we need to stand up for our principles. While China has abused the free market to its own advantage, America must defend the integrity of the free market — the only pathway to economic prosperity. We must ensure that our trade relationship is fair and that China isn’t using the rules to its advantage. We must ensure that our most important security-related industries — from essential medicine to semiconductors — have American-friendly supply chains, instead of depending on an authoritarian rival state. We must also end China’s intrusion into American business. That means limiting Chinese investment in critical parts of our economy. And of course, we must support the Chinese people’s right to live free. It’s the right thing to do and the smart thing to do.
