The Met had to give an explanation for why it stopped investigating allegations of sex trafficking against Jeffrey Epstein after the woman claiming she was forced into sex with the Duke of York accused the police of corruption.
Virginia Giuffre is pictured in a now notorious photo of Prince Andrew with his hand around her bare waist, with Epstein and the Duke’s ‘friend’ Ghislaine Maxwell in the background. A teenager then, she claims to have had sex with the royal at least three times back in 2001.
Some fourteen years later she brought her story to the Metropolitan Police Service, only to see the probe dropped rather quickly. “At first the Scotland Yard told me they were going to forensically examine GM’s [Ghislaine Maxwell’s] house in London – next thing I hear, just like the FBI, they were not allowed to pursue the investigation. Corruption in the highelevels [sic] of gov,” Giuffre wrote on Twitter this week….
It goes without saying that any successful organized crime group would have to infiltrate the legal system if it wants to survive in the long term.
Now that Mike Bloomberg has made his vanity presidential campaign official, it is worth reviewing his foreign policy record to understand why he is such a terrible candidate. Mehdi Hasan reminds us that Bloomberg was a conventional hawkish Republican until not that long ago, and his foreign policy views haven’t noticeably improved since he left the GOP:
Bloomberg, though, has been an abject failure on each of these issues. Take the war in Iraq. The then-Republican mayor of New York not only backed the illegal invasion and occupation in March 2003, but he also supported perhaps the most egregiously dishonest and bizarre justification for the war: that Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9/11 attacks. This, of course, was a brazen lie told by the likes of Dick Cheney and Fox News. But it was also publicly endorsed by Bloomberg.
I mentioned Bloomberg’s disgraceful propagandizing on behalf of Bush and the Iraq war in an earlier post, and this was just the most memorable part of his poor record. It isn’t surprising that someone who presents himself as a “centrist” should hold such hawkish views, since that hawkishness is usually an integral part of “centrist” posturing. Just as Bloomberg has no interest in challenging concentrated wealth and power in domestic affairs, he has no desire to challenge the status quo in foreign affairs, either. His foreign policy is to Washington’s militarism what his domestic views are to plutocracy. Bloomberg manages to have a lot of the same foreign policy baggage that Hillary Clinton had while still having no foreign policy experience. There are many reasons why Bloomberg is an awful fit with the Democratic Party, but on foreign policy he is particularly out of step and out of touch with where Democratic voters want to go. As we can see from recent surveys of public opinion, he is also out of step with a majority of all Americans.
Democratic voters are increasingly sympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians and there is much more pressure for candidates to be willing to criticize and penalize Israel when it commits crimes against them. Bloomberg has nothing to offer such voters. Hasan comments:
You might argue that Bloomberg was only parroting the standard liberal defense of Israel but, no, he went much further than that. During the 2014 bombardment of Gaza, in which more more than 500 Palestinian kids were killed, Bloomberg told CBS News that Israel “cannot have a proportional response” when fighting Hamas….
Having failed miserably to “trickle down” stock market wealth for a decade as was their intention, something Ben Bernanke made clear in his Nov 4, 2010 WaPo op-ed, central banks have moved on to more noble causes.
Over the weekend Minneapolis Fed chair Neil Kashkari suggested it was time to allow central banks to directly decide how to redistribute wealth, stating unironically that “monetary policy can play the kind of redistributing role once thought to be the preserve of elected officials”, apparently failing to realize that the Fed is not made up of elected officials but unelected technocrats who serve the bidding of the Fed’s commercial bank owners.
Failing to decide who is poor and who is rich, central bankers are happy to settle with merely fixing the climate.
Overnight, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda joined his European central banking peers by endorsing government plans to compile a fiscal spending package for disaster relief and measures to help the economy stave off heightening global risks. Kuroda said that natural disasters, such as the strong typhoon that struck Japan in October, may erode asset and collateral value, and the associated risk may pose a significant challenge for financial institutions, Kuroda said.
In short, it’s time for central banks to target global warming climate change:
“Climate-related risk differs from other risks in that its relatively long-term impact means that the effects will last longer than other financial risks, and the impact is far less predictable,” he said. “It is therefore necessary to thoroughly investigate and analyse the impact of climate-related risk.”
Kuroda’s crusade to tame climate came just hours after the ECB’s new chief, Christine Lagarde pushed for climate change to be part of a strategic review of the European Central Bank’s purpose, “spearheading a global drive to make the environment an essential part of monetary policymaking.”
As the FT put it, the plan “underlines Ms Lagarde’s declared goal as president to make climate change a “mission-critical” priority for the central bank. It comes as European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, whose team on Wednesday was officially endorsed by the European Parliament, is about to unveil her first landmark climate policy package….
It’s not enough that they’ve defrauded the entire world with their fake money ponzi scheme and their deliberate pump-and-dumps of the entire economy, now they intend to finish their totalitarian takeover by imposing abject poverty and starvation planet-wide in the name of their fake bought climate fraud.
If the human race is stupid enough to allow this, maybe we deserve to be slaves.

For years, those who have been following and even participating in the benefits of psilocybin have understood and read about the ability of magic mushrooms to combat a number of ailments. From helping the terminally ill come to grips with their own mortality to treating PTSD and depression — psilocybin has a wide range of benefits. Up until recently, however, the government has ignored these benefits and prosecuted those for seeking them out. All that is now changing though, and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just granted Breakthrough Therapy status to psilocybin for its ability to clinically treat depression….
This is a major culture shift at the FDA. The establishment has been feigning uncertainty about and blocking approval of psilocybin since the days of Timothy Leary, and it’s not hard to see why. “Depression” is a cash cow for the psychopharmaceutical/medical complex. Cures, especially empowering cures, are strictly verboten. Blaming victims’ brains for their life circumstances is also a handy tool of social control, and drugging them into homicidal delirium has proven indispensable in sowing random violence for the purpose of justifying gun control and further oppression, in keeping with the agenda established at the NIH decades ago. http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2018/03/how-the-empires-child-abusers-censored-revolutionary-research-into-causes-of-violence/

My guess is that Trump is shaking up the bureaucracy.
Trump signs law giving terminal patients access to unapproved drugs
May 30 (UPI) — President Donald Trump signed controversial legislation Wednesday that allows terminally ill patients to bypass federal regulations in seeking experimental treatment.
It allows patients to ask pharmaceutical companies for medication that passed Phase 1 of FDA approval, but is still undergoing testing.
The law stipulates that patients must have exhausted other options and the pharmaceutical companies are under no obligation to provide the drugs.
Critics say the law undermines the FDA’s authority and can lead to patients taking harmful medications. The FDA already has an expedited program in which seriously ill patients can apply for access to some experimental treatments. FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said 99 percent of those requests are approved…..
It’s instructive to see the parallels with the full spectrum psyop being carried out in the USA itself. The hidden hand is everywhere, but who controls it?
First published in 2011, this carefully researched documentary, reveals how the US manipulates protest movements (through covert ops) and carries out “color revolutions”.
The Revolution Business, 2011 – Consultants are helping people countries like Ukraine and Egypt build a foundation of knowledge in order to start revolutions.
Democratic change has been demanded across the Middle East. But was what seems like a spontaneous revolution actually a strategically planned event, fabricated by ‘revolution consultants’ long in advance?
Revolution consultants are the worst nightmare of every regime. Srdja Popovic was a founder of the organisation ‘Otpor’, a revolution training school. It was instrumental in the overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s and has now inspired a new generation of activists.
Political commentators like William Engdahl are convinced Otpor is being financed by the USA.
“The people from Otpor gave us a book in which they described all their strategies”, says Ezzedine Zaatour of the Tunisian uprising. That book was written by an American, Gene Sharp, and is now considered the “revolution guide book”, being used by opposition movements worldwide.
As Optor release their latest gadget, a resistance training computer game sponsored by American organisations, world leaders are voicing their concerns. “This is called a gentle coup!”, insists Hugo Chavez…..
Imperialist propaganda firm Bellingcat has published a response to the ever-expanding OPCW scandal, and it’s got to be seen to be believed.
Before we begin I should highlight that Bellingcat is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy, which according to its own cofounder was set up to do overtly what the CIA had previously been doing covertly, namely orchestrating narrative management geared toward the elimination of governments which refuse to comply with US interests. NED is funded directly by the US government, which means that Bellingcat is funded by the US government via an organization set up to promote imperialist regime change agendas. Bellingcat is also funded by Open Society Foundations, another imperialist narrative management operation.
Syria has been the target of what may be the most sophisticated propaganda campaign in history, and Bellingcat has been consistently rallying behind even the most transparently ridiculous tools of this campaign. This includes the notorious Bana Alabed psyop which at its height saw CNN staging a fake, scripted interview featuring a seven year-old girl assigning blame to Bashar al-Assad for an alleged sarin gas attack in Khan Shaykhun. Bellingcat’s stellar investigative work (which has been praised in fawning puff pieces by mainstream outlets like The Guardian and The New Yorker) concluded that this obvious propaganda construct was in fact nothing other than a little girl and her mother independently composing viral tweets, giving interviews and authoring books about how the Syrian government must be toppled via western interventionism.
Bellingcat’s latest phenomenal report on how you’re supposed to think about important geopolitical disputes, titled “Emails And Reading Comprehension: OPCW Douma Coverage Misses Crucial Facts”, addresses the leaked OPCW email which was recently published by WikiLeaks and various other outlets revealing that the OPCW omitted crucial information from its Douma report which indicated that a chemical weapons attack was unlikely to have occurred. I encourage you to go and check out Bellingcat’s new masterpiece for yourself. Don’t worry about giving them clicks; that’s not where they get their money….
It’s chilling to watch the talking heads on the mercenary media parrot what they’re hearing in their earpieces. They are puppets. No one is home, morally speaking. This is the “state of mind” our overlords hope to bring about in the wider population, through bribery, propaganda, neurotoxins or trauma based mind control. Unfortunately they’re already well advanced in this project. Psychopathy is epidemic in this country.
