China Balloon Opportunism and Hypocrisy

China Balloon Opportunism and Hypocrisy

Day Two of Commie Balloon Madness. The primary feature here is an inflow of “public servant” careerists clogging the interwebs with condemnation of something they hardly understand.

In Neocon slash Neolib Bizarro World, a helium bag the length of three school buses with an unknown payload and solar panels attached has become a declaration of war for the uniparty political class. Consider the former vice president under Orange Man:

Mike Pence @Mike_Pence
Shoot down the Chinese spy balloon. Go ahead and send the Secretary of State to China next week. Have @SecBlinken Look them in the eye and tell em- it better never happen again. That’s Peace Through Strength🇺🇸

I posted yesterday on the infeasibility of this.

Reality, however, is not a strong suit for “representatives” jockeying for attention, as power-hungry narcissists are wont to do.

Here we have a former CIA boss and a former ambassador to the United Nations venting spleen over them damn Chicoms. Note the stern visage.

Pompeo’s Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School is of little help in understanding balloons, missiles, and the Stratosphere.

Politicians and blue-checkers on Twitter are not inclined to compare and contrast. The “threat” posed by what is either an errant weather balloon or a clumsy surveillance device doesn’t hold a candle to the threat of the USG surveillance state.

The National Security Act, signed into law by a nuclear terrorist in 1947, resulted in mass surveillance of the American people. The FBI was established as a political police force, while the CIA concentrated on overthrowing foreign governments (it also violated its supposed charter to spy on domestic antiwar activists).

The Church Committee of the mid-1970s revealed how presidents used the CIA, FBI, and NSA to destroy political enemies (Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon—all employed the FBI to neutralize the opposition). No balloons were required.

The list of subversive, liberty-destroying programs and operations is long and sordid—ECHELON, COINTELPRO, Operation CHAOS, Project Mockingbird, Projects RESISTANCE, MERRIMAC, HT/LINGUAL, and the Cactus program, which tied it all together. This is a short list of known USG anti-liberty programs. No doubt many others remain classified and secret.

Following 9/11, the USG used “terrorism” as an excuse to violate the civil liberties of Americans. The so-called PATRIOT Act was rushed through Congress, resulting in illegal and “warrantless” surveillance of “tens of millions” of Americans.

In 2014, it was revealed the NSA had built a system designed to infect target computers with malware. The USG surveillance state went so far as to masquerade as a Facebook server in an effort to exfiltrate data. The overall objective was to “own the Net.”

The obsessive-compulsive effort by the state to disrupt the constitutionally protected political activity of its subjects—including the destruction of careers, frame-ups, and assassinations—is a topic far too lengthy for this Substack post.

Hypocrisy abounds, even though none of us know for certain what the ominous balloon is meant to do. Regardless, it was exploited to condemn China, resulting in Antony Blinken canceling a trip to the authoritarian crony capitalist “communist” nation.

It should come as no surprise Pence, Pompeo, Haley, and the majority of Congress critters and bureaucrats of the state, not only approve of tyrannical surveillance and “neutralization” of folks not on narrative but also enthusiastically support implanting military bases in foreign lands, thus creating endless tension as it develops and fields ever-evolving mechanics of death and mass murder.

For instance, consider the following:

Imagine the response of the USG if China moved troops near the Canadian and Mexican borders.

The Doomsday Clock would be a nanosecond before midnight.

In this interview Michel Chossudovsky explains why A US- NATO war against the Russian Federation is an impossibility.

As part of it’s “Special Operation”, Russia launched “precision” attacks against Ukrainian military installations, which commenced hours prior to President Putin’s February 24, 2022 TV address.

From one week to the next, Ukraine was without a Navy and without an Air Force, destroyed at the outset in late February, early March 2022.

The war was lost by Ukraine before it started.

The interview also  focusses on another strategic issue, which has not been addressed by military analysts. 

There are unspoken divisions with NATO. Turkey is both a “NATO Heavyweight” as well as  a firm ally of the Russia Federation. 

You cannot win a war against Russia when the second largest military power member state of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is “sleeping with the enemy”. 

A fractured NATO cannot under any circumstances wage war on Russia when its military heavyweight on the Southern coastline of the Black Sea is “Sleeping with the Enemy”, i.e. collaborating with Moscow coupled with a close personal relationship between Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Vladimir Putin. 

What this means is that under present conditions a US-NATO war against Russia is an impossibility.

Black is beautiful. Blackness is goodness.

Have you ever noticed that most of the cars you see on city streets and highways are black? Some are white and shades of grey and silver in between? They represent about 90% or more of all car colors in the US and in Europe. You may find slightly more red, blue and yellow cars in Latin America, Asia and in Africa. But the trend is universal.

This is for a purpose. You are being primed to think in black and white and ultimately mostly in black, as white is gradually disappearing. An entire generation knows nothing else but “cars are black and white”. The proportion of black is overwhelming. And with limited choices and constantly being exposed to these limited same-same colors, people start thinking and liking black and white.

This has been going on for the last 20 to 30 years. And not only with car colors. Black has become a very popular fashion color. Household equipment comes in black. White and grey in between is gradually fading out. That’s a planned “coincidence”. At the beginning you had a choice between black, white and shades in between. Now the funnel is gradually closing in on black.

You have entire restaurants in black, apartments furnished in black. Radio, stereo, TV – sound equipment, all in black. There are black housefronts, black painted patios, black carpets and rugs. And more and more people dress in black.

Black is chic. Black is beautiful. Ever more so than white. Never mind that white is the divine color. It’s discarded. Outranked by black. Divine versus diabolical. The latter is gaining the upper hand.

Your mind is being directed to love black. Dark vibrations emanate from black. Sadness, despair, depressions are represented by darkness, blackness. Black inspires fear. Black is the antidote to joy. Black lowers your defenses, makes us vulnerable to negative vibes. Black is doomsday-ish. Black lowers our defenses. Black is a planned mindset of apocalyptic think. Black primes us for fear and submission, without we noticing.

There are even black beds. Imagine! You are sleeping in the darkness on a pedestal of underworld vibrations. How does that subtly influence your state of mind?  It’s part of a larger plan. A long-term plan; has been going on for at least two to three decades.

Black becomes integrated into our hearts and souls. We are to become a reflection of blackness. Black becomes you, and you become black. You become an integrated oneness with black. Thinking black, you cannot escape. It’s a Luciferan Cult, a cult of death.

The Tavistock Institute

Blackness and the belief in its goodness form the basis for much more to come – an open mind for societal manipulation.

Welcome to Tavistock: to the Tavistock Institute for Social Engineering of the Masses. It is based in Sussex, England, and describes itself as “a nonprofit charity that applies social sciences to contemporary issues and problems.” In reality, it applies highly sophisticated psycho-social sciences to numb and channel our minds.

The Tavistock Institute has a wide reach, working together with many US think tanks and social research institutes, including the Pentagon based semi-secret DARPA – Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency which serves as the central research and development organization of the Department of Defense. One of its sinister objectives is mind manipulation of individuals and collaborating with Tavistock on geoengineering populations at large.

We must be aware that our thoughts and think-process is ever more controlled, manipulated – loaded with fear to make us submissive. To learn more about Tavistock, see Tavistock Institute – Social Engineering of the Masses, by Daniel Estulin – available from Amazon and other internet bookstores:

“The Tavistock Institute, in Sussex, England, describes itself as a nonprofit charity that applies social science to contemporary issues and problems.

But this book by Daniel Estulin posits that it is the world’s center for mass brainwashing and social engineering activities. It grew from a somewhat crude beginning at Wellington House into a sophisticated organization that was to shape the destiny of the entire planet, and in the process, change the paradigm of modern society.” (Amazon)

Focusing on just a few “phenomena”, false truths, demonstrates how large segments of populations and entire societies are being manipulated. The main instruments for mass manipulation are always fear, followed by submission.

Fearful people submit much easier to authority than those with self-esteem and recognition of self-worth.*

Fashion and torn jeans

In case, you sometimes wonder why people may have a tendency to wear torn jeans, sometimes so miserably torn, they are lucky to hang on to the wearer’s legs. It looks ridiculous, but it’s in. Its fashion of the commons, of the masses. It’s again Orwell’s dystopian “ugly is beautiful and beautiful is ugly.”

Again, mind and mass manipulation – Tavistock and Co. – at their best. The same purpose as the beauty of blackness is behind training people towards what you may call “same-think”; another form of matrix thinking, promoting the blue-pill doctrine.

You may wonder, how can grown-up and well-educated people in unison love black and wear torn-jeans. It’s the promotion of the tramp-look, the NYC homeless-look. It’s hype and prevents you from thinking what’s going on in politics and why.

Pineal gland

All the while, your mind is being numbed with chemicals in the air and in the water. Fluoride, for example, in the water and in toothpaste is sold to you as protecting children’s teeth from cavities. In reality, it is one of the chemicals that numb your pineal gland, particularly important for children as the pineal gland develops human’s sensibility, sense for wrong and right, sense for ethics. See this.

Highly sophisticated science is behind it all. You wouldn’t guess, but the purpose of this long-term thinking and planning is to bring about a generation that has been funneled into a dystopian “system-think” mode. George Orwell’s foresight was brilliant. And it is being applied to the latter by the cabal.

Pineal Gland: Anatomy, Location, and Function

Simultaneously with 24/7 nonstop intensive propaganda for whatever aberration is at the forefront, they – the “financial cabal: – have tools for killing the pineal gland. That’s the gland at the center of your brain (see picture on the right – origin “google”). The pineal gland regulates the perception of light – darkness, by creating N-acetylserotonin and melatonin. Melatonin has many therapeutic roles and is heavily implicated in the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle.

As such, the pineal gland is key for human sensitivity and senses. When the pineal gland is severely weakened, mind manipulation is even easier, as natural senses and sensibilities are neutralized.

It’s all part of a sophisticated long-term plan. And all of the strategic mechanisms are connected. Nothing is coincidence.

Another tool for mass manipulation with multiple effects, is the release of thousands of tiny chemical molecules and heavy metal particles (they are covered by hundreds if not thousands of patents) by airplanes into what is called chemtrails which, on the one hand are a key instrument for climate geoengineering, the man-made “climate change” (see below), and on the other, for weakening humans’ sensibility, to prime us, We, the People, for mass-manipulation.

COVID

Once people are tuned-in or primed for propaganda, they’ll react to everything they are told.

To make sure they do, though, there is this crucial element of “fear” added to the propaganda.

It works like medicine. First fear, then warning – then whatever hammer slams down on people’s freedom, is for “our own good”. – and it works.

Fear is THE instrument for mind control and societal geoengineering.

The false covid crisis is a recent mass “engineering” of opinions, actually of creating a “public opinion”. The fraud should have been clear from the outset. It was to a few but most didn’t realize what was happening. Sophisticated psychosocial science was applied. People were shocked with tyranny-type dictates of obligatory mask wearing, social distancing and lockdowns. They condemned the non-believers and created a chasm between the sheep and the snakes.

That too is part of the manipulation: dividing to govern. An axiom as old as human history.

Fear worked and still works. Now that the mask mandate is off across the globe, millions of people still wear the ugly face cover that makes of individuals anonymous nobodies.

Compliment of Tavistock and Co., and their influence around the world of perfected social science keeping people on their knees, obeying with fear of catching a deadly disease if they were infected. To make it all believable, the mass dying of covid was tricked by delaying normal burials of everyday from all-causes diseased people. Coffins accumulated. In some cases, in the streets – to cause fear and obedience.

If only we – the vast majority of the people – had eyes to see and ears to hear and a brain to think and seek out reason – we would have noticed that the perpetrators gave us many signals of their lies and of what was to come. But he geoengineering of the masses was done well.

When waking up finally started, it was too late. Even now, after two years of intense vaxx campaigns – see below – after injecting some 70% of the western population, in the Global North, the light has not yet penetrated every mind.

Event 201

On October 18, 2019, in New York City, Event 201 took place. A desktop simulation of precisely what was going to happen less than three months later, a corona virus outbreak. The event was sponsored by the visible villains of those appearing to command the world, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum (WEF), and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It had broad participation of all villains, who would have a future key role in cracking down on humanity, the World Bank, IMF, WHO, the entire UN system – and many more.

With the midnight gong of the beginning of the decade 2020-2030 (UN Agenda 2030), covid descended on all 193 UN member countries (194 WHO members).

All at once. Had people used their brains, just a tiny corner of their brains, they would have realized that it is impossible for a virus to hit the entire planet at once, meaning at once – the same day, the same hour. Common sense and sensibility had been killed along with the pineal gland, gradually and gently during decades before. So, the clever perpetrators got away with it, as planned.

On March 11, 2020, Dr. Tedros, Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared covid a “pandemic” with only about 118,000 cumulative cases (PCR test) worldwide including China (the figure has never been questioned and checked) and some 4,200 deaths (including China). Nobody checked those figures either.

The number of confirmed cases outside China (6.4 billion population) was of the order of 44,279 and 1,440 deaths (figures recorded by the WHO for March 11 and March 12)

No evidence of a pandemic on March 11, 2020

Did people not notice that this was a fraud of global proportions?

Fear must have kept us down. Fear from contracting the disease (morbidly and mortality) that is – and second, fear from the authorities.

Just compare the covid data (even if it’s false, which it probably is) with the common flu claiming every year between 50 and 70 million cases in the US alone – covid (never really identified as a virus), is a flu-like affliction, with a mortality rate about the same as the flu, of 0.07%. The flue has never been declared a pandemic. Open eyes and open ears should have detected the fraud. Most didn’t. They fell in with the masses – in lockstep.

Fear, submission, repression

Social engineering and mind manipulation is what the world – all 193 UN member states (194 for WHO) has been exposed to over the past at least 100 years, with one finality – to control humanity, Mother Earths resources and to decide over who lives and who dies. “Death Cult” institutions, WHO, WEF, the entire UN system – are the instruments to carry out this diabolical plan on behalf of an occult elite.

It is All Connected 

And be always aware – it is all connected. Presenting each event in the media as a neural individual “problem”, or crisis, separately, so that people do not make the connection. If they do, they will understand.

Around mid-March 2020, a lockdown was ordered in lockstep – by almost all countries of the world. In the west it was police and even military enforced.

Many African countries took it less seriously. They questioned the wisdom of this regimented worldwide “lockstep-lockdown” regime. Governments worldwide had been “primed” before. So, We, the People, should have noticed that all of this is a scam, and that our leaders (sic) are all traitors.

Governments – their leaders – remain traitors of the people they are supposed to to serve. They are traitors up to this very day. Take note.

Tavistock and Co know that, but they also know that people are generally beholden to their governments, that they would never suspect that they are cheated by their governments – actually in many cases driven to their death by their government. It’s hard to admit to oneself that your government is betraying you – so, many people fall into the “Stockholm syndrome”, hanging on to their governments in full trust.

“Vaxxing“

In mid-December 2020 they said they finally had a “vaccination” ready – and intense worldwide vaxx-campaigns started in 2021 – à la “no human is left behind, unvaxxed” – all must go through this horrendous tyrannical experiment of gene-modifying mRNA injections, sold as vaccinations. Which now even Pfizer and Co — and the “regulators” CDC, and the chief criminal in this affair, Dr. Fauci, now admit.

Yet, the admittance doesn’t stop the vaxx-bulldozer from rolling on. Because Tavistock and DARPA and Co. fuel the bulldozer’s rolling over all evidence of fraud. The bought media, of course, play along.

In fact, the vaxxes, now admitted, were only “experimental”, in as much as the manufacturers, who by the way never disclosed the contents of the vaxx-vial, was testing their reaction on humans. There were many versions of the “vaxxes” circulating, original, then first, second, third and even fourth “boosters”. The manufacturers, Pfizer, Moderna, J&J et al – wanted to know which concoctions were the deadliest.

Because part of the plans for the UN Agenda 2030, and in parallel, for Klaus Schwab’s (WEF) The Great Reset, is a massive culling of the population, of those useless eaters – as Schwab and his close Israeli adviser Harari calls us, The People. It is clearly a eugenist agenda.

By now, three years into this crime of biblical proportions, we know that millions, if not hundreds of millions of people have already perished or were maimed for life by the vaxxes. Far-far out-pacing the so-called covid-deaths, of which there is not even proof that they exist.

Why not?

Because worldwide statistics of deaths from all causes showed no excess deaths until the end of 2020, when supposedly covid was ravaging the globe.

However, excess deaths started showing in 2021 and 2022, when coerced vaxxination escalated and the vaxx-impact was registered. But, of course not covered by the mainstream media.

In the west, mostly Europe, global Anglosaxonia and Japan, excess deaths were reported as between 15% and 25% in some countries even higher. And we are only at the beginning. As Dr. Mike Yeadon, former VP and Chief Science Officer of Pfizer, warned on many occasions, the real impact (death) of the vaxxes may only be registered several years down the road, when it will be difficult to trace deaths back to the vaxxes.

Other than the potentially deadly mRNA and spike protein, plus in many cases graphene oxide (high degree of magnetism) characteristic, the vaxxes and every booster, reduces the natural human immune system (Dr. Yeadon). Depending on the number of boosters, the vaxxed could lose up to 70% to 80% of their natural immunity. Thereby becoming vulnerable to all kinds of diseases, including aggressive and deadly cancers – cancers that are affecting mostly the human reproductive system.

In addition – also hardly mentioned – but flagrantly reflected by country statistics, the vaxxes sterilize women, as well as men. Fertility rates clearly declined drastically. In some countries life-child births went down by up to 40%.

According to the WEF, due to the plandemic, fertility has drastically decreased. Nice way of saying “we have done so, with our covid vaxxes”. See this.

The non-vaxxed were segregated. They were not allowed in restaurants, theatres and other public places. – A discrimination that clearly works against the Soros-funded Woke agenda, also a Tavistock-WEF concept, the “Wokeness” of society – see below.

Instilled socio-engineered fear, makes vaxxed people keeping the unvaxxed from entering a restaurant. No police are needed. A clever strategy. These days are over. But they could reappear tomorrow, under another pretext, say the introduction of a vaxx certificate, that you refuse.

“Woke”

You may have guessed it, “Woke” is another parallel flank of the Tavistock et al agenda – it’s part of the tools to bring about a new world order (NOW) by 2030. In about 2017 the term “woke” has been infiltrated into the mainstream vocabulary. Woke is part of the social engineering and mind manipulation process.

What does “woke” really mean? In many ways it’s an enigma. People have different definitions. They include, no discrimination, equal treatment of all races, acceptance of all gender differences and preferences.

The Webster defines woke as “chiefly US slang”, meaning, “Aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice).”

To be precise: Woke (/ˈwoʊk/ WOHK) is an adjective derived from African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) meaning “alert to racial prejudice and discrimination”.

This opens woke up to a wide range of interpretations. Not by coincidence, of course. That’s wat the manipulators want – create confusion, deviation of thoughts, bringing all together as a “oneness”, yet being divided about the term ‘s meaning. Divide to rule, while deviating from the real issue.

“Woke” is everything. A perfect tool for societal engineering.

Remember, mind-manipulated people will be gullible to stories of fear, lies, eventually obeying senseless but dictatorial orders – “if you don’t behave, you are “un-woke” and that’s a punishable crime.

Tavistock – there are so many things we have to obey to – how would we know what’s true and what’s fake? – We don’t.

And we cannot think. As we have been trained for black-and-white only. We tend to obey. There is hardly any room for colors, for deviation of thought, especially when the dictate comes top-down.

Here is an interesting clip about the Woke culture, by Konstantin Kisin – 11-min video clip, “This House Believes Woke Culture Has Gone Too Far” – 7/8 – Oxford Union.


LGBTQIAP+

This unpronounceable acronym stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual/aromantic, pansexual communities. The plus sign represents other not-yet invented queer identities, hence not yet included in the acronym. It feeds right into the woke-culture of non-discrimination.

Interestingly, the Woke / LGBTQIAP+ concept does precisely that. It discriminates, while pretending it fights discrimination. (White) teachers and parents are told to teach children not to discriminate guys, lesbians and trans-people, and not to discriminate black and colored people. But the sheer fact that you separate the “sexually normal” from the sexually “special” – and distinguish between skin colors, is discrimination – it’s against the very Woke-Culture. “Woke” would be respect everybody the same.

It’s again the Orwell dystopia of “war is peace and peace is war.”

Why not teaching children, as well as adults to respect all sexual orientations and all skin colors. Period.

As to the highly promoted sexual reorientation campaign – gays, lesbian and trans – won’t have children. See, Tavistock and Co work for the depopulation agenda.

Can you imagine how far this goes – there are schools in Europe that allow children age 11 / 12 to decide about their sexual orientation, i.e., medical intervention, if necessary – without their parents consent. That’s social manipulation at its worst. Potentially destroying young lives, making kids believe they may have another sexual orientation than the one they are born with – propaganda is everything.

The Climate Change Farce

Climate changes all the time. Everything that lives on Mother Earth, is in constant motion. The term “climate change”, preceded by “Global Warming” – which with rapidly shifting temperatures, was perceived not so reliable. Then the Cultists came up with the more flexible “universal term” of ”climate change”. It fits all shades of weather.

The idea itself was invented already by the Club of Rome in 1971, which was created by a non-European, David Rockefeller.  The Club has around 100 active full members with an eleven-member Executive Board, including Henry Kissinger, George Soros, Bill Gates, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and more such luminaries.

Anybody who thinks the Club of Rome, founded on the principles of an NGO, has anything to do with Rome – is dead-wrong. The CoR is headquartered in Winterthur, Switzerland, in the paradise for some of the world’s shadiest organizations.

Among the objectives of the CoR, as reflected by their 1972 issued infamous book “Limits of Growth”, is the pursuit of means to oppress, control and reduce humanity.

Their “Limits of Growth” is as of this day the blueprint for the tyranny that we are living since the beginning of the UN Agenda 2030. And more is to come.

The sloganization of climate change and its dire doomsday consequences for humanity is part of the ongoing mind-trickery.

We are talking about man-made climate change – made by CO2 emissions that are slowly but steadily killing the planet. Never mind that without CO2 there would be no life on earth. As carbon is used by plants to generate oxygen, the life gas for all humans and sentient beings.

So climate change too is an absolute propagandized lie. An entire generation more has been brought up with the guilt, being responsible for killing the planet because the energy we consume, hydrocarbons, emit CO2 that kills the planet. A lie of mammoth proportions.

The only man-made climate change that indeed is changing weather patterns, is geoengineering the weather – in other words, its weaponizing the weather. The deadly monsoon in Pakistan in July, August and parts of September 2022, was with high probability geoengineered, for political reasons.

It was to deviate people’s attention from wanting to bring back THEIR, people-elected President, Imran Khan, who was ousted by a US instigated internal coup, “vote of non-confidence”, as Mr. Khan was not dancing to the tunes of Washington, but had the interests of the Pakistani people at hand.

Similar with last summer’s extreme heat wave in Europe and North America, as well as the extreme cold hitting the Northeast of the US and parts of Europe – are the results of man-made weather interference. They kill in more ways than one, by wiping out harvests, floods destroying vital infrastructure – prompting the infamous death cycle – famine, poverty, disease, death

Who controls the weather or climate, control the people.

“Democracy”

The term “democracy” is for the last 30 years or so in everybody’s vocabulary. It’s mostly used as a no-holds barred expression. In other words, who wants to contradict Democracy? – We live under the illusion to live in a democracy. When you hear “democracy” – your mind is curling up – “Oh yes, we live in a democracy” implying not like Russia and China – which are presumed dictatorships.

Democracy is one of the most misused household words in modern history, especially in the west. It’s a make-believe term.

Have we ever had a democracy?

Nope. Never. Not even the Ancient Greeks some 2500 years ago, who supposedly invented democracy- were true democratic societies. Not all were equal. Only educated people were able to vote. The “educated” were pretty much the same as today – the elite, the wealthy, the “influencers”.

But hardly the common people.

Since the “common people” do often not grasp the subtleties of politics, they constantly and consistently being told what to think, translating into what or for whom to vote.

That’s not democracy, but rather mass-manipulating the minds. But it’s sold to us as “democracy” – something we never had.

A new society may be formed on democratic principles, the basis for which is a well-educated – a truth-educated – population.

When we feel there is no way to escape, when we are hanging in the balance, between choosing to do nothing and waiting it out – and taking the risk to resist, it is only a question of our, We the People’s, mindset to escape from tyranny and start afresh.

We must take the risk, to salvage humanity and ourselves from the ongoing dystopian destruction.

The Climate Imperative Foundation is the newest and richest anti-hydrocarbon, anti-natural gas group you’ve never heard of.

How rich is Climate Imperative?

According to the latest report from Guidestar, the group took in $221 million in its first full year of operation. (Guidestar calls the income “gross receipts.”)

That means that Climate Imperative, which is less than three years old, is already taking in more cash than the Sierra Club, which bills itself as the “nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.”

According to Guidestar, the Sierra Club collected $180 million in its latest reporting year. Climate Imperative is also taking in more money than the Rocky Mountain Institute which collected about $130 million in its latest reporting year. I use those groups for comparison because they are pushing anti-gas initiatives across the country. More on them in a moment.

The emergence of Climate Imperative — which has received virtually no attention from legacy media outlets — is important for several reasons.

First, it shows that the effort to “electrify everything” and ban the use of natural gas in homes and businesses – and that includes gas stoves — is part of a years-long, lavishly funded campaign that is being bankrolled by some of the world’s richest people.

Second, despite numerous claims about how nefarious actors are blocking the much-hyped “energy transition,” the size of Climate Imperative’s budget provides more evidence that the NGO-corporate-industrial-climate complex has far more money than the pro-hydrocarbon and pro-nuclear groups.

Indeed, the anti-hydrocarbon NGOs (most of which are also stridently anti-nuclear) have loads of money, media backing, and momentum. As can be seen in the graphic below, the five biggest anti-hydrocarbon NGOs are now collecting about $1.5 billion per year from their donors. (All data is from Guidestar.) That sum is roughly three times more than the amount being collected by the top five non-profit associations that are either pro-hydrocarbon or pro-nuclear.

Third, banning the direct use of natural gas in homes and businesses may be worse for the climate.

You read that right. Burning gas directly allows consumers to use about 90% of the energy contained in the fuel. Using gas indirectly — by converting it into electricity and then using that juice to power a heat pump, stove, or water heater — wastes more than half of the energy in the fuel.

That point was made by Glenn Ducat, in his excellent new book,

Blue Oasis No More: Why We’re Not Going to “Beat” Global Warming and What We Need To Do About It. Ducat is a Ph.D. nuclear engineer who worked at Argonne National Lab, as well as at two electric utilities.

He explains

“Burning natural gas by residential commercial and industrial customers is at least twice as efficient and emits about half as much CO2 as processes that use electricity produced from fossil fuels. Converting process-heat applications to electricity before the electricity grid is completely carbon-free will increase CO2 emissions.” (Emphasis in the original.)

I began tracking Climate Imperative in late 2021, when Axios published a story headlined, “climate movement veterans launch major new foundation.”

Axios reported that the new group has “a planned budget of $180 million annually over five years.” That number caught my attention. Here was a new group with a planned five-year budget of $1 billion, and yet, Axios was the only media outlet to report on it.

On its website, the group makes it clear that the electrify everything push is a major focus of its work, saying its “imperatives include rapid scaling of renewable energy, widespread electrification of buildings and transportation, stopping the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure, reducing pollution from major industrial sources, and economy-wide pathways to reduce emissions from the biggest sources.” The website lists some of Climate Imperative’s grantees, a group that includes the Building Decarbonization Coalition and the American Lung Association.

Axios went on to note that the San Francisco-based foundation, “began making grants in the spring of 2020.” It also noted that the group is headed by two former Sierra Club officials: Bruce Nilles and Mary Anne Hitt. Nilles spent more than a decade heading the group’s Beyond Coal campaign. Climate Imperative’s advisory board includes Margo Oge, a former top EPA official, and Bill Ritter, the former governor of Colorado.

Where is Climate Imperative getting its money? The board of directors likely holds the answer. The most recognizable names on the six-person board are Silicon Valley venture capitalist John Doerr and Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The other board members include Anita Bekenstein, Sanjeev Krishnan, Greg Nelson, and George Pavlov. A source with knowledge of the group’s funding told me this week that the majority of the money is coming from Doerr and Jobs. Forbesmagazine estimates that Doerr has a net worth of $12.7 billion. Forbes puts Jobs’ net worth at $17.7 billion. None of the other board members appear on Forbes’ list of America’s richest people.

The effort to demonize gas stoves began in early 2020, at about the same time Climate Imperative was launched. That year, the Sierra Club claimed that gas stoves are “linked to respiratory illnesses, and children who live in homes with gas stoves are 42% more likely to have asthma.” The source for that claim was a paper by the Rocky Mountain Institute, the Colorado-based non-profit founded by renewable-energy promoter Amory Lovins.

One of the first legacy media outlets to publish an article promoting claims about bad air quality from gas stoves was The Atlantic. In October 2020, it published an article headlined “Kill Your Gas Stove.”

It may be a coincidence, but The Atlantic is owned by Laurene Powell Jobs. It’s also interesting to note that in 2018, The Atlantic published a piece titled “How the Gas Oven Changed Humans’ Relationship With Fire,” and noted that the “ability to turn flames on and off at will was ‘one of the single greatest contributors to human happiness in the kitchen.’”

Since 2020, the Rocky Mountain Institute has continued its anti-gas crusade. Earlier this month, a spate of news stories were published after the group released a paper that claimed 12.7 percent of childhood asthmas are due to gas stoves. One of the authors of that paper, Talor Gruenwald, works at RMI. Gruenwald is also a research associate at Rewiring America, a San Francisco-based outfit that calls itself the “leading electrification nonprofit, focused on electrifying our homes, businesses, and communities.” (Rewiring American doesn’t publish a Form 990. It is sponsored by Windward Fund, which took in $273 million in 2021.)

But RMI’s asthma claims don’t stand up to scrutiny. Perhaps the most-definitive analysis of the issue was a 2013 study published in Lancet Respiratory Medicine which studied half a million school children in 47 countries over a multi-year period. It relied on questionnaires filled out by the mothers of children. What did it find? “We detected no evidence of an association between the use of gas as a cooking fuel and either asthma symptoms or asthma diagnosis.”

Furthermore, just a day or two after the RMI paper came out, the group walked back its claim about asthma, with one RMI official telling the Washington Examiner that the study “does not assume or estimate a causal relationship” between childhood asthma and natural gas stoves.

Where does RMI get the money to push its electrification agenda?

Some of it is coming from Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos. In 2020, the Bezos Earth Fund gave RMI $10 million, which the group said will be used to “reduce GHG emissions from homes, commercial structures, and other buildings, enabling RMI to increase its current work with a coalition of partners in key states. The project will focus on making all U.S. buildings carbon-free by 2040 by advocating for all-electric new construction…”

Bezos is also a big backer of the Natural Resources Defense Council, the group that shamelessly bragged about its role in the premature closure of the Indian Point nuclear plant in New York. In 2020, the NRDC issued a press release touting the $100 million grant it got from the Bezos Earth Fund. It said the money “will be used to help NRDC advance climate solutions and legislation at the state level, [and] move the needle on policies and programs focused on reducing oil and gas production…” (Emphasis added.)

The Sierra Club has been a prime beneficiary of former New York City mayor  Michael Bloomberg’s Bloomberg Philanthropies, which has pledged $500 million to the Beyond Carbon project. In 2019, the pledge was considered the largest ever “philanthropic donation to combat climate change.” The Sierra Club has been a primary beneficiary of Bloomberg’s giving. About two years ago, a Sierra Club employee told me that it is getting about $30 million per year from Bloomberg. On its website, the group touts its role in the Beyond Carbon initiative, calling it “the largest climate campaign in the U.S., with the goal of closing all domestic coal plants by 2030 and stopping the use of gas as a transition fuel.” (Emphasis added.)

Last August, the Sierra Club asked the Environmental Protection Agency to ban all natural gas appliances at the federal level. The group has had success in getting bans adopted in California. According to its website, 69 communities in the state have now “adopted gas-free buildings commitments or electrification building codes.” In September, the California Air Resources Board voted to ban the sale of all natural gas-fired space heaters and water-heating appliances in the state by 2030. In addition, New York City and Seattle have banned the use of gas in new construction. Massachusetts is also rolling out a new measure that will allow up to 10 communities to ban gas.

The money coming from Bezos, Bloomberg, Doerr, Jobs, and other deep-pocketed donors means that the NGO-corporate-industrial-climate complex can easily outspend the entities that are promoting nuclear energy.

For instance, the Nuclear Energy Institute, according to the latest Guidestar numbers, had gross receipts of about $143 million in its latest reporting period. Meanwhile, the top associations that support hydrocarbon producers and distributors — including the American Petroleum Association, American Gas Association, Western States Petroleum Association, and Society of Petroleum Engineers — had combined gross receipts of less than $400 million.

Two final points. The first is the hypocrisy of billionaires funding efforts to slash hydrocarbon use while they are consuming staggering amounts of hydrocarbons. According to a 2020 article in Vanity Fair, Michael Bloomberg owns eight houses in New York state alone, and “he also reportedly owns several properties in London, Florida, Colorado, and Bermuda.” Thus, Bloomberg may own a dozen houses. How many of those houses have gas stoves? I’ll make a wild guess and bet that it’s more than one. Oh, and according to Vanity Fair, while he was mayor of New York, Bloomberg “was known to spend weekends” at his house in Bermuda, “traveling back and forth on private jets.” And what is fueling those private jets? I’m guessing here, but it’s probably not organic quinoa.

Speaking of jets, Forbes recently reported that Jobs owns a Gulfstream G650 (list price about $66 million) that burns about 500 gallons of jet fuel per hour. When not zooming around on her jet, she also spends time on a $120 million yacht called the Venus. Bezos reportedly owns two Gulfstream G-650ERs. After Bezos flew to the 2021 climate meeting in Glasgow, a representative from the Bezos Earth Fund told Business Insiderthat all was well because the billionaire “uses sustainable aviation fuel, and offsets all carbon emissions from his flights.”

That line puts the hypocrisy of the billionaires funding anti-hydrocarbon initiatives in a nutshell: Bezos, Bloomberg, Jobs, and other uber-rich, hyper-mobile elites can purchase “offsets” for their private jets and mega-yachts, but the shlubs in the barrio can’t be allowed to use a gas stove to cook dinner because, in the words of RMI’s Talor Gruenwald, “Gas stove emissions are significant contributors to the climate crisis.” Never mind that, as the Breakthrough Institute’s Alex Trembath recently noted, that gas stoves account for just 0.4% of total U.S. gas use.

The final bit of hypocrisy at work here is the regressive nature of the gas bans. Indeed, it’s clear that banning natural gas will mean higher costs for consumers. Last March, in the Federal Register, the Department of Energy published its annual estimate for residential energy costs. It found that on a per-BTU basis, electricity costs about 3.5 times more than natural gas. It also found that gas was, by far, the cheapest form of in-home energy, costing less than half as much as fuels like kerosene, propane, and heating oil.

That means that efforts to ban natural gas are, in practice, an energy tax on the poor and the middle class. During a recent interview, Jennifer Hernandez, a California-based lawyer who represents The 200, a coalition of Latino groups that has sued the state over its climate policies, told me that “Natural gas is the last source of in-home affordable energy. And these climate extremists can’t stand it.”

Last October, the Department of Energy provided more evidence that natural gas is the cheapest form of energy for homeowners in its Winter Fuels Outlook. The DOE estimated that heating with electricity this winter will cost about 46% more than heating with natural gas. These numbers show that forced electrification will mean higher energy bills for consumers. Low- and middle-income Americans will bear the brunt of forced electrification because they will have to spend a larger percentage of their disposable income on energy than wealthy consumers.

The bottom line here is obvious: the effort to ban natural gas in homes and businesses is, at root, more about class than it is about climate change.

Over the past several months, I sent several emails to the leaders at Climate Imperative, Mary Anne Hitt and Bruce Nilles, asking about the foundation’s funders, their grantees, their stance on nuclear energy, and the potential cost impact of the electrify everything campaigns on low- and middle-income consumers. I followed up this week with an email to Hitt. She did not reply.

I sent similar questions to Panama Bartolomy, the director of the Building Decarbonization Coalition. His reply: “I will not be responding to your questions.”

Romantic nationalism and the Balkans

In the 19th century, Europe witnessed the rise of romantic nationalism, which created contemporary nations.[i] Many European states, based on the concept of ethnicity (common origin, culture, history, language, and tradition), were founded at the time, including the people living in the territories of Serbia, Montenegro, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, and Romania. However, a number of contemporary regional nations remained at that time without their national states like Slovenians, Croatians, Macedonians, and Albanians. Some of these nations temporarily solved in the 20th century their national aspirations via common states, like Croats, Slovenians, and Macedonians (within several types of Yugoslav political entities).[ii]

The Balkan Albanians, who never had a national state before the 1912−1913 Balkan Wars, started their struggle for the national state rather late, relative to the other nations in the region, for understandable reasons. Unlike other nationalities mentioned, the Albanians had first to forge the concept of the Albanian nation, before attempting to found a national state. Since their Balkan homeland was much retarded in every respect, the initiative for the first stage mentioned came from the Albanians living outside proper Albania. The first concrete action in that direction was made at Prizren, which lies on the traditional Serbian land of Kosovo-Metochia (KosMet) and which at that time was populated with a clear Serbian majority (70%). The so-called First (Albanian Islamic) Prizren League was founded in 1878[iii] in the same year when Serbia, Romania, and Montenegro were definitely recognized by the European Great Powers as the sovereign and independent states at the 1878 Berlin Congress.[iv]

Prizren and the First Albanian League (The League of Prizren)

The question is why the Albanians chose exactly the town of Prizren to organize the first Albanian political league there and to promulgate the first pan-Albanian national program of Greater Albania?

Albanian Question 1919-1920

Prizren was not only in Serbia, but it was her capital during the reign of Stefan Dušan, a Serbian King and Emperor (1331−1355).[v] He assumed the title of the Emperor of the Serbs and Greeks and put together a great Serbian Empire which reached from the Mediterranean coast opposite the Island of Lefkada to the River of Danube and controlled the whole of the Bulgarian hinterland.[vi] The geographic location and political, cultural, and ecclesiastical status of Prizren imply that the town was at the core of Serbian territory and even autonomous bishopric territory.[vii] The town of Prizren was mentioned for the first time in the 11th century when the fortress above the town has been erected by the Byzantine authorities. Prizren fell to Bulgarian rule in 1204 and 1282 was included in Serbia (Rascia). The history of the town is closely connected to the personality of Serbian King and Emperor Stefan Dušan Almighty who held court in the town and built a famous Christian Orthodox Church of Ss. Archangels which was later destroyed by Muslim Albanians and Turks who used the material of it to build the Sinan Pasha Mosque in the town. Prizren became occupied by the Ottoman army in 1455 and 1570 became the administrative center of the Ottoman sanjak (administrative unit). From the Ottoman time, a massive influx of neighboring Albanians from North Albania to Prizren and KosMet occurred to such an extent that in the year 1878, there were already 1/3 of the town’s population to be (Muslim) Albanians, the rest the Christian Orthodox Serbs and Roman Catholics. According to the Ottoman census of 1878, the town was populated by 43.922 inhabitants and subsequently making it one of the largest towns in the Ottoman Balkans.

Today, there are three most important cultural-historical buildings in Prizren among others: 1) Serbian Christian Orthodox Church of Bogorodica Ljeviška, built by Serbian King Milutin in 1307−1309 (heavily damaged by Muslim Albanian mob in March 2004); 2) The Sinan Pasha Mosque dating from 1615; and 3) The house of the League of Prizren of 1878 (museum). During the 1998−1999 Kosovo War, Prizren did not suffer the destruction, but, a good part of the town, with its traditional Serb houses in oriental style, was burned down by ethnic Albanians in the summer of 1999 under NATO’s umbrella, and much more have been destroyed by Albanian mob during the organized ethnic cleansing of the Serbs on March 17−19th, 2004, under the very eyes of German Kosovo Force (KFOR) troops.[viii] The Serbs were expelled from Prizren in June 1999 with very few old people left in refuge at the Bogoslovija Orthodox seminary who were later resettled elsewhere, but the house of Bogoslovija was itself burned to the ground by an Albanian fanatic Muslim mob on March 17th, 2004, as was the same with the nearby Serbian Christian Orthodox Monastery of the Holy Archangel Michael. That is the historical destiny of the town of Prizren – “Serbian Constantinople” which according to the Yugoslav census of 1991, had a population of 178.723. Today, there are no Serbs in Prizren.

On June 10th, 1878, Muslim Albanian delegates assembled in Prizren’s mosque for the purpose to work out a common political platform in order to counter both the Russian-Ottoman Treaty of San Stefano signed on March 3rd of the same year and the coming resolutions of the Congress of Berlin (from June 10th to July 10th, 1878), which had with a great reason ignored Muslim Albanian nationalistic claims and wishes to create a Greater Albania in the Balkans. The League initially had full political support from the Ottoman authorities which basically initiated its creation and functioning under the leadership of Albanian public figure Abdul bey Frashëri (1839−1892). The League submitted on June 13th a Memorandum to the British representative at the Congress of Berlin – Benjamin Disraeli. The resolutions of the League (Kararname) have been signed by 47 Muslim Albanian feudal lords (beys) on June 18th, 1878 in which they refused to give up any land to Serbia, Montenegro, and Greece which they assumed to be “Albanian”, demanded the return of all “Albanian” territories annexed by Serbia and Montenegro, required Albanian autonomy within the Ottoman Empire in the form of the creation of united Albanian province composed by for “Albanian” vilayets (a Greater Albania), and, finally, required no more conscription for, and taxation by, the central Ottoman Government in Istanbul.[ix]

Image: Greater Albania diaspora

After the meeting in Prizren, Abdul bey Frashëri, representing the Central Committee from Istanbul, and a person who had an opening speech at the first meeting of the League of Prizren, returned to South Albania to organize a League Committee and gather Albanian militia to oppose the annexation of this part of Albania by Greece. He as well as traveled to Berlin, Vienna, Rome, and London to seek support for the creation of a Greater Albania according to the resolutions of the League of Prizren. However, the Ottoman Government in April 1881 sent military detachments to pacify the Albanian anti-Ottoman uprising, and as a direct consequence of the intervention, the League was suppressed. Abdul bey Frashëri was arrested by the Ottoman soldiers and later sentenced to life imprisonment but in 1885 he was pardoned. He died in Istanbul after a long illness.[x]

Nevertheless, the League of Prizren has to be considered the formal beginning of the Albanian struggle for the creation of a (Muslim) Greater Albania which was for the first time a project was realized in the practice during WWII by B. Mussolini and A. Hitler and after the 1998−1999 Kosovo War to be in the process of revival under the umbrella of the NATO and the EU.

Peć and the Second Albanian League (The League of Peja)

KosMet is at the center of Serbian national identity, culture, history, and spiritual life for many reasons. The region was in the core of the Serbian medieval state where its capital was in the town of Prizren and the headquarters of an independent Serbian Orthodox Church – the Patriarchate of Peć, located at the mouth of the Gorge Rugova, on the western outskirts of the town of Peć. The monastery, founded on this place in the 13th century at the time of Serbian St. Sava (Rastko) Nemanjić, was the HQ of the Serbian Orthodox Patriarchate from 1346 onward. It is here that the medieval Serbian archbishops and patriarchates lie buried, but, however, in 1455 the Ottoman conquest of KosMet put an end to the power of the Patriarchate of Peć.

The patriarchate was not officially abolished, but the power of the Serbian Orthodox Church fell increasingly to the Greek Archbishopric of Ohrid. Nevertheless, the Patriarchate of Peć was restored in 1557 by Sultan’s decree due to the influence of Grand Vizier Mehmed Pasha Sokolović (Islamized ethnic Serbs from East Bosnia) and thereafter managed to exercise its authority over the Serbs within the Balkan provinces of the Ottoman Sultanate.[xi] However, after the First Great Serbian Migration of 1690 from KosMet and Central Serbia under the Patriarch Arsenije III Crnojević (of Montenegrin origin), the Serbian Orthodox Church split into two parts: 1) the Patriarchate of Peć was responsible for the Ottoman Serbs, while 2) newly established Metropolitanate of Sremski Karlovci had jurisdiction over the Habsburg Serbs. Nevertheless, a Greek Patriarch of Constantinople abolished the Patriarchate of Peć on September 11th, 1766, and now no more than a little island of Christian Orthodoxy in a Muslim sea.[xii]

In the garden of the Patriarchate of Peć, there are beautiful and extremely valuable Serbian Christian Orthodox churches, veritable jewels of medieval Serbian art: The Church of the Holy Apostles (about 1253); the Church of St. Demetrius, built by Archbishop Nikodim in 1321−1324; and the Church of the Mother of God (Hodegetria), built by Archbishop Danilo II around 1330. However, according to Albanian Kosovo authorities today, all of, in fact, Serbian Christian Orthodox monuments in KosMet are built by ethnic Albanians or the Byzantine authorities but not by the Serbs. The ethnic Serbs left the town of Peć in June 1999 after the withdrawal of Yugoslav troops according to the Kumanovo Agreement.

The town of Peć (in Albanian, Peja, in Turkish Ipek) is of extreme importance for the Albanian nationalistic ideology and programs regarding the creation of a Greater Albania. The Second Albanian nationalistic organization – The League of Peja was established at a meeting of Albanian leaders (Muslim feudal lords) on January 23−29th, 1899 by the Muslim Albanian cleric and nationalist figure, Haxhi Zeka for the very purpose to recreate and reform the First Albanian League of Prizren (1878−1899). The League of Peja (known as Pledge for a Pledge) was attended by some 500 delegates of whom the biggest number arrived from KosMet, regardless of the very fact that the invitations have been sent to the leaders from all Albanian lands.

There were two crucial political-national aims of the League of Peja:

  1. The focal purpose of the Albanian League of Peja was to create a „besa“ – a general truce on feuding and warfare so that the Muslim Albanians could direct their national efforts on the creation of a Greater (Muslim) Albania within the Ottoman Empire rather than on fighting among themselves. Such Greater Albania had to be established by allegedly four „Albanian“ vilayets (Ottoman administrative districts) as it was fixed already by the First (Muslim) Albanian League of Prizren in 1878.
  2. The second purpose was to preserve the Muslim Albanians from the western-oriented Sultan’s reforms, which have been carried out in Istanbul in the favor of the Ottoman Christians and democratic liberalization of the Ottoman Sultanate.

The final program of the League of Peja came out with 12 points for the territorial creation of a Greater Albania within the Ottoman state with an expression of full loyalty to the Ottoman authorities. Nevertheless, the chief message was to preserve Muslim Albanians from Sultan’s pro-western reforms and to guard public order by – and to enforce Sharia Law.

Here, it has to be noticed that since the 1878 League of Prizren onward, any Albanian program on the creation of a Greater Albania was supported by unproven claims that the Albanians are direct descendants of the ancient Balkan Illyrians.

Black/African American History includes Corporate Exploitation

Black/African American History includes Corporate Exploitation

Black/African American History observances this month will acknowledge people and events deserving to be remembered in the past and supported in the present in the quest for justice, and peace for all African Americans.

Observances should include how corporations and those of immense wealth have amassed political power and economic wealth by exploiting racism toward people of color, especially African Americans, in this country over several centuries.

Examples:

  • The Royal African Company and other British “crown corporations” transported slaves to the American colonies
  • The “Fugitive Slave Clause” of the U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 2, Clause 3) mandated that escaped slaves (the property of slaveholders) when caught had to be returned to their owners.
  • The “Three-Fifths “Compromise” in the Constitution (Article I, Section 2, Clause 3)  defined slaves (which had no political rights) as 3/5ths of a person in determining a state’s population – to ensure that southern states would have more votes in the Electoral College to perpetuate slavery.
  • JP Morgan bank used slaves as collateral for loans to slave owners in the 19th century.
  • The 13th Amendment contained an “exceptions clause” – prisoners could be used as forced labor. “Convict leasing” or  “slavery by another name” involved African American forced to to work for railroads, U.S. Steel and other corporations to rebuild the south after the Civil War.
  • African-American strikebreakers were used widely in the meat packing, steel, coal mining, automobile, and railroad industries between the end of Civil War and New Deal to stoke racism between white and black workers to prevent the rise of unions.
  • Housing, automobile, and construction corporations profited by laws (including discriminatory FHA mortgage underwriting) that promoted redlining of neighborhoods to maintain high housing values, especially in suburbia.
  • The disproportionate mass imprisonment of African Americans, due to racist drug and other laws, has given rise to highly profitable and powerful private prison corporations, namely CoreCivic and Geo Group. The Prison Industries Act (promoted by ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council) has expanded prison labor and financially benefited many companies, among them Victoria’s Secret, Whole Foods Market, Walmart, Microsoft, Starbucks, BP, Nintendo, AT&T, Target, Dell, Eddie Bauer, and Boeing.
  • Racial predatory loans by Wall Street financial entities, which profited in the billions, fueled the 2007-9 financial crisis.
  • Toxic industries tend to be placed or to expand in African American poor communities.
  • The explosion of police violence against innocent African Americans in cities and subsequent financial settlements in amounts that communities can not afford has given rise to a new profitable financial instrument for corporate and individual investors: “police brutality bonds.”

Not to be overlooked is the corporate hijacking of the Fourteenth Amendment, intended to provide legal due process and equal protection to African Americans when it was ratified in 1868. Two decades later, the Supreme Court hijacked the decision, ruling that a corporation is a “person” with the same due process and equal protection rights intended exclusively for African Americans.

The Court invalidated approximately 200 economic regulations of businesses from 1905 until the mid-1930’s passed by legislators under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment.

Governments could no longer pass laws to protect or favor local businesses over chain stores or family farms over agribusinesses. Large corporations have perverted the Fourteenth Amendment as both a shield to protect themselves and a sword to successfully challenge public laws that they claim are “discriminatory” that were intended to protect people and communities.

Move to Amend’s We the People Amendment will end all corporate constitutional rights, including the corporate due process and equal protection “rights” of the Fourteenth Amendment. It goes beyond simply reducing corporate money in elections, as this comparison chart describes.

Much attention will be appropriately devoted this month to the history of the movements to abolish slavery and the movement for fundamental civil rights – as a stepping stone to fundamental human rights.

The institution of slavery, which for millennia was deemed as an inevitable reality of human existence, was (minus the exceptions clause) abolished in this country due to a massive, dedicated and diverse people’s movement – including people of color and others risking their lives.

It’s past time to abolish all corporate constitutional rights. A dedicated and diverse people’s movement is needed – with inspiration and learnings taken from the anti-slavery, civil rights and all movements – enshrining the rights of people over property, including corporations.

A corporation is not a person. Period.

For at least three decades Germany enjoyed an unprecedented period of energy security, one which made it possible for the Central European country to flourish, further dominating the old continent. It didn’t take long for this economic power to translate into political influence and help Berlin expand even further, particularly in Eastern Europe.

And yet, by late February 2022, Germany’s “dream economy” came to an abrupt end thanks to its suicidal sanctions against Russia, which haven’t only proven futile, but also quite self-harming. Berlin severely underestimated the importance of access to cheap Russian energy, particularly natural gas which helped power much (if not most) of its export-oriented economic strategy.

Perhaps the best summary of just how immensely profitable it was for Germany to do business with Russia was an analysis published back in August last year, authored by Zoltan Pozsar, a renowned economic and financial expert. In his thought-provoking report, Pozsar also presented a chart showing how “$2 trillion of German value depends on $20 billion of Russian gas”. The wording was carefully chosen and it isn’t there just to be amusing. Essentially, Germany was making approximately a hundred times greater profit thanks to cheap commodities, particularly Russian natural gas, to run its export-driven economy at bargain prices.

With this now gone for years or even decades to come, Germany’s “economic miracle” has effectively become yet another footnote in history books. According to a Reuters report, published on January 30, Allianz Trade presented a study that cited contract expiries and delayed wholesale pricing effects and found that German industry is set to pay approximately 40% more for energy in 2023 than in 2021, before the energy crisis triggered by the political West’s failed economic siege of Russia.

“The large energy-price shock still lies ahead for European corporates,” Allianz Trade (better known as Euler Hermes until last year) claims.

The report states that higher corporate utility bills last year were contained as long pass-through times from wholesale markets and government interventions mitigated the immediate hit from surging prices as Russia’s energy exports to the West were disrupted due to the imposition of self-defeating sanctions by the European Union.

The European Central Bank (ECB) stepped in to fund the resulting budget deficits, which effectively means that, despite the official stance and Russophobic posturing, it was directly funding Moscow’s massive financial build-up. However, Allianz Trade estimates that as the pass-throughs are ending, meaning the price increases will soon hit EU corporate profits by 1-1.5% and lead to lower investment, in Germany’s case this would amount to €25 billion (approximately $27 billion).

And while the report claims that German corporate finances are robust and that a state-imposed natural gas price cap allegedly might help, it’s extremely likely to make things much worse. This doesn’t only include the fact that it’s exceedingly difficult to physically replace Russian natural gas with a readily available (much less affordable) alternative, but is also simply impossible for certain EU members such as Hungary, which is landlocked and couldn’t rely on port terminals for seaborne LNG shipments.

To make matters worse, such alternatives are also at least five times more expensive than Russian natural gas, which is effectively destroying the EU’s already dwindling industrial competitiveness on the global markets. Many EU officials have already expressed their frustration with the US due to this, with some high-ranking leaders in Brussels accusing Washington DC of profiteering at the expense of the increasingly troubled bloc.

Although the report insists that fears of crisis leading to deindustrialization and loss of competitiveness against the United States were overdone due to labor costs and exchange rates having a higher impact on manufacturing than energy prices, the same is not true in regard to other countries around the world. The exporters are losing market shares in areas such as agriculture, machinery, electrical equipment, metals, transport, etc. and the main beneficiaries tend to be Asian, Middle Eastern and African companies, not American ones, the report admits.

This effectively means that EU corporations will not only lose their global market share, but could also eventually start losing it in Europe itself, as the already high manufacturing costs in the EU will be even higher due to surging energy costs, which are affecting both citizens and companies.

On Saturday, the economy ministry stated that the German government’s one-time subsidy to help private households and small businesses with gas prices – the first stage of a package that will be complemented with retroactive price caps kicking in in March – has cost €4.3 billion so far. Germany has earmarked €12 billion for this purpose, but the government states that the €4.3 billion is not the final cost as many eligible companies are yet to apply. With the end of February being the deadline, they have exactly a month to do so.

By May 2020, it had become apparent that the standard practice of putting COVID-19 patients on mechanical ventilation with ventilators was a death sentence

Between 50% and 86% of COVID patients placed on life support ended up dying

By May 2020, doctors had also found that high-flow nasal cannulas and proning led to better outcomes than ventilators

The World Health Organization promoted the use of ventilators as a way to purportedly curtail the spread of virus-laden aerosols, thereby protecting other patients and hospital staff. In other words, suspected COVID patients were sacrificed to “protect” others

The matter becomes even more perverse when you consider the fact that many “COVID cases” were patients who merely tested positive using faulty PCR testing. Hospitals also received massive incentives to diagnose patients with COVID and put them on a vent

By May 2020, it had become apparent that the standard practice of putting COVID-19 patients on mechanical ventilation with ventilators was a death sentence.1 As early as April 9, 2020, Business Insider reported2 that 80% of COVID-19 patients in New York City who were placed on ventilators died, which caused a number of doctors to question their use.

The Associated Press3 also publicized similar reports from China and the U.K. A U.K. report put the figure at 66%, while a small study from Wuhan, China, put the ratio of deaths at 86%. Data presented by attorney Thomas Renz in 2021 showed that in Texas hospitals, 84.9% of patients died after more than 96 hours on a ventilator.4

The lowest figure I’ve seen is 50%.5 So, somewhere between 50% and 86% of all ventilated COVID patients died. Compare that to historical prepandemic ratios, where 30% to 40% of ventilated patients died.

High-Flow Cannulas and Proning Were Always More Effective

Meanwhile, doctors at UChicago Medicine reported6 getting “truly remarkable” results using high-flow nasal cannulas in lieu of ventilators. As noted in a press release:7

“High-flow nasal cannulas, or HFNCs, are non-invasive nasal prongs that sit below the nostrils and blow large volumes of warm, humidified oxygen into the nose and lungs.

A team from UChicago Medicine’s emergency room took 24 COVID-19 patients who were in respiratory distress and gave them HFNCs instead of putting them on ventilators. The patients all fared extremely well, and only one of them required intubation after 10 days …

‘Avoiding intubation is key,’ [UChicago Medicine’s Emergency Department’s medical director Dr. Thomas] Spiegel said. ‘Most of our colleagues around the city are not doing this, but I sure wish other ERs would take a look at this technique closely.’”

The UChicago team also endorsed proning, meaning lying in the face-down position, which automatically improves oxygenation and helps alleviate shortness of breath.

Yet despite these early indications that mechanical ventilation was as unnecessary as it was disastrous, placing COVID patients on life support is standard of care to this day, more than three years later. How could that be?

How China and the WHO Created Ventilator Hysteria

In a September 30, 2020, Substack article,8 journalist Jordan Schachtel described how China and the World Health Organization came up with and nurtured the idea that mechanical ventilation was the correct and necessary first-line response to COVID:

“In early March, when COVID-19 was ravaging western Europe and sounding alarm bells in the United States, the WHO released COVID-19 provider guidance9 documents to healthcare workers.

Citing experience ‘based on current knowledge of the situation in China,’ the WHO recommended mechanical ventilators as an early intervention for treating COVID-19 patients. The guidance recommended10 escalating quickly, if not immediately, to mechanical ventilation.

In doing so, they cited the guidance being presented by Chinese medical journals, which published papers in January and February claiming that ‘Chinese expert consensus’ called for ‘invasive mechanical ventilation’ as the ‘first choice’ for people with moderate to severe respiratory distress.

The WHO further justified this approach by claiming that the less invasive positive air pressure machines could result in the spread of aerosols, potentially infecting health care workers with the virus.”

That last paragraph is perhaps the most shocking reason for why millions of COVID patients were sacrificed. They wanted to isolate the virus inside the mechanical vent machine rather than risk aerosol transmission.

In other words, they put patients to death in order to “save” staff and other, presumably non-COVID, patients. If you missed this news back in 2020, you’re not alone. In the flurry of daily reporting, it escaped many of us. Here’s the description given in the WHO’s guidance document.

WHO’s guidance document

Strangely enough, while the U.S. quickly began clamoring for ventilators, China started relying on them less, and instead exported them in huge quantities. As noted by Schachtel, “China was making a fortune off of manufacturing and exporting ventilators (many of which did not work correctly and even killed patients11) around the world.”

COVID Patients Effectively Euthanized

That ventilation and sedation were used to protect hospital staff was also highlighted by The Wall Street Journal in a December 20, 2020, article,12 which noted:

“Last spring, with less known about the disease, doctors often pre-emptively put patients on ventilators or gave powerful sedatives largely abandoned in recent years. The aim was to save the seriously ill and protect hospital staff from COVID-19 …

Last spring, doctors put patients on ventilators partly to limit contagion at a time when it was less clear how the virus spread, when protective masks and gowns were in short supply.

Doctors could have employed other kinds of breathing support devices that don’t require risky sedation, but early reports suggested patients using them could spray dangerous amounts of virus into the air, said Theodore Iwashyna, a critical-care physician at University of Michigan and Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals in Ann Arbor, Mich.

At the time, he said, doctors and nurses feared the virus would spread through hospitals. “We were intubating sick patients very early. Not for the patients’ benefit, but in order to control the epidemic and to save other patients,” Dr. Iwashyna said ‘That felt awful.’”

As noted in a January 23, 2023, Substack article,13 in which James Lyons-Weiler revisits the ventilator issue and the shocking reason behind it, “euthanizing humans is illegal. Especially for the benefit of other patients. It should feel awful.”

The matter becomes even more perverse when you consider the fact that many “COVID cases” were patients who merely tested positive using faulty PCR testing.

They didn’t have COVID but were vented anyway, thanks to the baseless theory that you could have COVID-19 and be infectious without symptoms. Hospitals also received massive incentives to diagnose patients with COVID — whether they actually had it or not — and to put them on a vent.

Frontline Nurse Blew the Whistle on Vent Misuse

Some of you may remember Erin Olszewski, a retired Army sergeant and frontline nurse who blew the whistle on the horrific mistreatment of COVID patients at Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens, New York, which was “the epicenter of the epicenter” of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S.

She described14 a number of problems at Elmhurst, including the disproportionate mortality rate among people of color, the controversial rule surrounding Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders, lax personal protective equipment (PPE) standards, and the failure to segregate COVID-positive and COVID-negative patients, thereby ensuring maximum spread of the disease among noninfected patients coming in with other health problems.

Olszewski also highlighted the fact that COVID-negative patients were being listed as confirmed positive and placed on mechanical ventilation, thus artificially inflating the numbers while more or less condemning the patient to death from lung injury.

Making matters worse, many of the doctors treating these patients were not trained in critical care. One of the “doctors” on the COVID floor was a dentist. Residents (medical students) were also relied on, even though they were not properly trained in how to safely ventilate, and were unfamiliar with the potent drugs used.

At the time, Olszewski blamed financial incentives for turning the hospital into a killing field. Elmhurst, a public hospital, received $29,000 extra for a COVID-19 patient receiving ventilation, over and above other treatments, she said.

If Elmhurst had infection control in mind when ventilating patients, they certainly didn’t follow through, as COVID-positive and negative patients were comingled — a strategy Olszewski suspected was intended to drive up the COVID case and mortality numbers.

Killing for Profit

Others have also highlighted the role of financial incentives. In early April 2020, Minnesota family physician and state Sen. Scott Jensen explained:15

“Medicare has determined that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you’ll get paid $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator, you get $39,000; three times as much.”

Former CDC director Robert Redfield also admitted that financial policies may indeed have resulted in artificially elevated hospitalization rates and death toll statistics. As reported August 1, 2020, by the Washington Examiner:16

“… Redfield agreed that some hospitals have a monetary incentive to overcount coronavirus deaths … ‘I think you’re correct in that we’ve seen this in other disease processes, too.

Really, in the HIV epidemic, somebody may have a heart attack but also have HIV — the hospital would prefer the [classification] for HIV because there’s greater reimbursement,’ Redfield said17 during a House panel hearing … when asked by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer about potential ‘perverse incentives.’ Redfield continued: ‘So, I do think there’s some reality to that …”

In addition to receiving exorbitant payments for COVID admissions and putting patients on a ventilator, hospitals are also paid extra for:18

  • COVID testing for all patients
  • COVID diagnoses
  • Use of remdesivir
  • COVID deaths

When everything is said and done, a COVID patient can be “worth” as much as $250,000, but for the maximum payment, they have to leave in a body bag. If we know anything, it’s that profit motives can make people commit atrocious acts, and that certainly appears true when it comes to COVID treatment.

In the U.S., hospitals also LOST federal funding if they failed or refused to administer remdesivir and/or ventilation, which further incentivized them to go along with what amounts to malpractice at best, and murder at worst.

Patient Rights Have Evaporated

There’s also evidence that certain hospital systems, and perhaps all of them, have waived patients’ rights, making anyone diagnosed with COVID a virtual prisoner of the hospital, with no ability to exercise informed consent. As noted by Citizens Journal in December 2021:19

“We now see government-dictated medical care at its worst in our history since the federal government mandated these ineffective and dangerous treatments for COVID-19, and then created financial incentives for hospitals and doctors to use only those ‘approved’ (and paid for) approaches.

Our formerly trusted medical community of hospitals and hospital-employed medical staff have effectively become ‘bounty hunters’ for your life.

Patients need to now take unprecedented steps to avoid going into the hospital for COVID-19. Patients need to take active steps to plan before getting sick to use early home-based treatment of COVID-19 that can help you save your life.”

There Must Be a Reckoning

There’s no telling how many COVID patients have already lost their lives to this medical malpractice, and it must stop. Patient rights must be reestablished and be irrevocable, we need to hold decision-makers to account, and lastly, we have to somehow ensure that our hospitals cannot be turned into killing fields for profit ever again. As noted by Lyons-Weiler in his January 2023 article:20

“We need harsh, hard investigations with consequences — and activists need to write bills tying the hands of protocolists to prevent them from ever again killing one patient to hypothetically save another — under threat of a murder charge.

We need legislation for ‘on-demand’ scripts for off-label medicines that patients want for potentially deadly infections — regardless of ‘FDA Approval’ (FDA does not, by definition, have to ‘approve’ off-label scripts.”

COVID Treatment Guidance

While SARS-CoV-2 has become milder with each iteration, I still believe it’s a good idea to treat suspected COVID at first signs of symptoms — especially if you’ve gotten the COVID jab. COVID hospitalization and death are now “pandemics of the vaccinated,” to reuse and rephrase one of the globalist cabal’s favorite mantras.

Perhaps it’s the common cold or a regular influenza, maybe it’s the latest COVID variant. Either way, since they’re now virtually indistinguishable, at least in the early stages of infection, your best bet is to treat symptoms as you would treat earlier forms of COVID. Treatment for long-COVID also overlaps with the protocols for SARS-CoV-2 infection. Early treatment protocols with demonstrated effectiveness include:

Based on my review of these protocols, I’ve developed the following summary of the treatment specifics I believe are the easiest and most effective.

The Worldwide Corona Crisis, Global Coup d’Etat Against Humanity

by Michel Chossudovsky

Michel Chossudovsky reviews in detail how this insidious project “destroys people’s lives”. He provides a comprehensive analysis of everything you need to know about the “pandemic” — from the medical dimensions to the economic and social repercussions, political underpinnings, and mental and psychological impacts.

“My objective as an author is to inform people worldwide and refute the official narrative which has been used as a justification to destabilize the economic and social fabric of entire countries, followed by the imposition of the “deadly” COVID-19 “vaccine”. This crisis affects humanity in its entirety: almost 8 billion people. We stand in solidarity with our fellow human beings and our children worldwide. Truth is a powerful instrument.”
