It’s not just a social credit score system spreading around the world from China that threatens the free people of the world; India’s Aadhaar National ID program has the full support of Bill Gates and the World Bank as a model for other countries to follow.
Gates said in a 2018 CNBC interview that it was “too bad” if someone thought that Aadhaar was a privacy issue:
The Gates Foundation has pledged to fund the World Bank in an effort to take the ID program to other countries.
Despite Gates plea that there are no privacy issues with Aadhaar, several court cases have gone to India’s supreme court on grounds of privacy violations.
The ID system has had serious security breaches, with access to a billion identities being sold for less than $10 through WhatsApp.
One of the court filings (Mathew Thomas vs Union of India) details the rise of China’s social credit system, comparing the Indian Aadhaar initiative to the Chinese program.
Perhaps the most sensational angle to this story is that the same international tech company that provides the infrastructure to Aadhaar also makes drivers licenses in the United States.
Idemia (formerly Morpho), is a billion dollar multinational corporation. It is responsible for building a significant portion of the world’s biometric surveillance and security systems, operating in about 70 countries. Some American clients of the company include the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, and the FBI.
The company website says that Morpho has been “…building and managing databases of entire populations…” for many years.
In the United States, Idemia is involved in the making of state issued drivers licenses in 42 states.
Idemia is now pushing digital license trials in the U.S. Delaware and Iowa are among five states involved in the trials this year. With the mobile licenses, law enforcement will be able to wirelessly “ping” a drivers smartphone for their license.
The Indian government recently announced a facial recognition program to monitor all social media platforms, called the Advanced Application for Social Media Analytics.
Big tech companies are using China, India, South Korea and other countries as testing grounds for smart cities, surveillance systems and command and control tech that are being stealthily rolled out in the west.
In what appears to be the biggest disruption to French society since the gilets jaunes demonstrators nearly torched Paris last year, public workers across the country stayed home on Thursday, immobilizing public transit across the country as the first general strike in more than 20 years began.
The walkout was called by unions angry at President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reforms (not unlike how a planned – then scrapped – gas tax hike sparked the giles jaunes).
On the fist day of the strike, parts of Paris resembled a ghost town during what are typically busy morning-commute hours. Roads were empty, and train stations were deserted, according to the Times of London.
The biggest industrial action of Macron’s tenure is, so far, staggering in scale: 50% of French teachers are off work, nine out of ten trains were cancelled and eleven of the fourteen underground lines in Paris are closed. A total of 245 separate demonstrations have been announced across France as students, firefighters, healthcare workers and others joining in. Strikes at Air France forced a wave of flight cancellations, leaving thousands of travelers scrambling for a workaround. Air France cancelled 30% of its domestic flights and 10% of international short- and medium-haul flights on Thursday, RT reports.
Millions of workers are staying home.
In Paris, some resorted to bikes, skateboards or walking in the bitter cold as 90% of the trains in the country were closed….
Just in case you thought your doctor was your friend, remember that you are a customer and your disease is to be “managed”, not cured, for a cure curtails profits.
The American Medical Association (AMA) trademarked the word “cure” so healers can’t use it, which is just as well, because healing is something altogether different than managing symptoms of disease with toxic chemicals, or cutting the body open with sharp knives to correct a perceived condition, which very well may return because the root cause has not been addressed.
Thank God for emergency room MDs who set broken bones and patch up wounds from accidents. We sometimes need their services. They are in a different world from other doctors. They are a step above. They truly serve.
Med school students go through hell to graduate. They usually leave school saddled with huge debt. They need to make their specialty pay. They often have to compromise their original, sincere desire to help people get well, so they can pay their office rent and salaries. Is it any wonder doctors commit suicide more often than any other profession?
Compassion for people in the medical field is a beautiful thing. But always get a second opinion.
Goldman Sachs analysts attempted to address a touchy subject for biotech companies, especially those involved in the pioneering “gene therapy” treatment: cures could be bad for business in the long run.
“Is curing patients a sustainable business model?” analysts ask in an April 10 report entitled “The Genome Revolution.”
“The potential to deliver ‘one shot cures’ is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies,” analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. “While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow”…
Has anyone seen the environmental movement? I can’t seem to find it. Just this conjured excuse for a global application of the shock doctrine, mass impoverishment and depopulation. It seems standard toxic industrial pollution and GMO’s are no longer of concern to the well-washed (brainwashed) masses.
No matter how many times the establishment knowingly and shamelessly lies for sinister purposes, no matter how many countries are ruined, no matter how many people are killed, they never seem to run out of credibility. But this is the ultimate scam. If they pave this hoax over the public mind, it’s goodbye civilization and hello high-tech feudalism.
The continued efforts of CrossFit, Inc. and the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) have made strides towards exposing the corruption that compromises America’s public health agencies.
Through the direct actions of CrossFit and ICAN, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been forced to reveal several uncomfortable truths about the corruption and conflicts of interest within their respective agencies.
In 2017, an ICAN Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to HHS, responsible for vaccine safety testing and oversight, asked for any documents related to the work done by the agency in pursuant to the mandate laid out in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986.
In short, the FOIA request asked for any reports HHS has given the U.S. Congress, as they have been mandated to do on a regular basis, over the last 30 years that show they are making vaccines safer. After HHS was unable to produce the requested documents ICAN filed a lawsuit….
In 2017, ICAN also put HHS on notice to answer 11 questions. Simple inquiries concerned safety testing and monitoring, improvement of the adverse events reporting system, continued research to identify which children are at increased risk of vaccine injury, the science backing up the agency’s blanket statements about vaccine safety, conducting studies comparing total health outcomes of vaccinated/partially vaccinated children with completely unvaccinated children and more.
HHS was unable to answer any of the questions with relevant, thorough assurance and adequate scientific rigor. A second letter was sent to HHS in 2018 explaining the gravity of the agency’s reliance on such insufficient and improper science to assure the safety of pharmaceutical vaccine products for all American children.
In 2019, after failing to produce the clinical trials and safety studies relied upon to license both the flu and TdaP vaccines for use in pregnant women after being presented with an ICAN FOIA request, the FDA was taken to court.
The FDA, under Scott Gottlieb’s leadership, conceded, “Clinical studies for TdaP and inactivated influenza vaccines did not specifically enroll pregnant women.” The FDA legal response went on to admit they “have no records responsive to your [plaintiff’s] request.”
In short, the licensed the shots for use in pregnant women without the required scientific studies to ensure safety. In addition to the FDA licensing the flu and TdaP vaccines outside of law and their own policy, the agency has went on to actively promote and market the flu shot to pregnant women. Embodying the very spirit of revolving door phenomenon, then FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb left the agency prematurely to join Pfizer’s board of directors.
In 2015, CrossFit revealed Coca-Cola was behind the Global Energy Balance Network (GEBN), a soda industry front group that blamed chronic disease exclusively on inactivity while casting doubt on the role of nutrition.
In 2017, CrossFit broke the news that the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was in league with Coca-Cola. And
in 2018, with information brought to light by CrossFit, Congress reprimanded the CDC Foundation and Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for neglecting to disclose money they had received from Coca-Cola and Pepsi. This was followed by CrossFit suing the CDC and NIH’s parent agency, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), over noncompliance with the Freedom of Information Act.
In 2018, CrossFit, Inc. CrossFit exposed the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Foundation and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for neglecting to disclose money they received from Coca-Cola and Pepsi.
CrossFit then submitted FOIA requests to the CDC and NIH in order to access both foundations’ full donor reports, but the CDC and NIH delayed. CrossFit then went foward to sue (HHS) to compel them to comply with the FOIA request and release any donor list-related internal communications.
Now, breaking news from CrossFit’s website states,
“The CDC released internal communications, at least initially. After noticing the information it produced included incriminating and embarrassing emails, however, HHS attorneys tried to retroactively redact the content of those emails…”
HHS later backed down after CrossFit challenged the redaction.
CrossFit, Inc. goes on to report what was discovered in those redacted internal emails:
“The CDC’s official in charge of public-private partnerships wondered whether the CDC’s affiliated nonprofit could “skate by” on its transparency reports by lumping contributions together and not delineating which donor contributed what, as the law requires. In effect, the CDC official asked whether the CDC Foundation can launder contributions it receives in order to mislead the public. This constitutes a massive conflict of interest.”
CrossFit’s conclusion, like so many others exposed to this information, speaks to the urgency America finds itself in when they proclaim, “At least one CDC researcher has described the CDC Foundation as a “professional money-laundering facility,” and it is increasingly clear that the organization turns food/beverage and pharmaceutical industry dollars into information and recommendations favorable to those industries, all with the federal government’s seal of approval.”
A recent interview given by a former high-ranking official in Israeli military intelligence has claimed that Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual blackmail enterprise was an Israel intelligence operation run for the purpose of entrapping powerful individuals and politicians in the United States and abroad.
Since the apparent death by suicide of Jeffrey Epstein in a Manhattan prison, much has come to light about his depraved activities and methods used to sexually abuse underage girls and entrap the rich and powerful for the purposes of blackmail. Epstein’s ties to intelligence, described in-depth in a recent MintPress investigative series, have continued to receive minimal mainstream media coverage, which has essentially moved on from the Epstein scandal despite the fact that his many co-conspirators remain on the loose.
For those who have examined Epstein’s ties to intelligence, there are clear links to both U.S. intelligence and Israeli intelligence, leaving it somewhat open to debate as to which country’s intelligence apparatus was closest to Epstein and most involved in his blackmail/sex-trafficking activities. A recent interview given by a former high-ranking official in Israeli military intelligence has claimed that Epstein’s sexual blackmail enterprise was an Israel intelligence operation run for the purpose of entrapping powerful individuals and politicians in the United States and abroad.
In an interview with Zev Shalev, former CBS News executive producer and award-winning investigative journalist for Narativ, the former senior executive for Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence, Ari Ben-Menashe, claimed not only to have met Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, back in the 1980s, but that both Epstein and Maxwell were already working with Israeli intelligence during that time period.
“They found a niche”
In an interview last week with the independent outlet Narativ, Ben-Menashe, who himself was involved in Iran-Contra arms deals, told his interviewer Zev Shalev that he had been introduced to Jeffrey Epstein by Robert Maxwell in the mid-1980s while Maxwell’s and Ben-Menashe’s involvement with Iran-Contra was ongoing. Ben-Menashe did not specify the year he met Epstein.
Ben-Menashe told Shalev that “he [Maxwell] wanted us to accept him [Epstein] as part of our group …. I’m not denying that we were at the time a group that it was Nick Davies [Foreign Editor of the Maxwell-Owned Daily Mirror], it was Maxwell, it was myself and our team from Israel, we were doing what we were doing.” Past reporting by Seymour Hersh and others revealed that Maxwell, Davies and Ben-Menashe were involved in the transfer and sale of military equipment and weapons from Israel to Iran on behalf of Israeli intelligence during this time period.
He then added that Maxwell had stated during the introduction that “your Israeli bosses have already approved” of Epstein. Shalev later noted that Maxwell “had an extensive network in Israel at the time, which included [the later Prime Minister] Ariel Sharon, according to Ben-Menashe.”…
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is the latest in a long line of people including politicians, lawyers, and Republicans to deny his conversation with Donald Trump was a “quid pro quo” moment. At the epicenter of the impeachment investigation, the phone call between the two world leaders is the linchpin for the Democrats’ case. But despite holding hearings to ascertain Trump’s guilt or innocence, or unearth a scintilla of hard evidence of wrongdoing, the Dems continue to ignore the other major participant in the phone call.
No surprise there.
In a recent interview, Zelensky told the American Democratic Party and the rest of the world that he understands what the now colossally overused Latin term means and he ain’t buying it. He said: “I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing.”
Define ‘Quid Pro Quo’
Let’s review what a quid pro quo situation looks like: Hunter Biden, a good friend of substance abuse and political advantages, was appointed to a cushy position with Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings, and he made millions. His father, then vice president, boasted of how he told Ukrainian officials to terminate a prosecutor investigating Burisma Holdings in exchange for a billion dollars in U.S. loans.
Liberty Nation’s Graham J. Noble lays out the problems the Biden family brings to the discussion:
“Certain facts are beyond dispute: Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, in 2014 secured a lucrative directorship with a Ukrainian energy company. The younger Biden’s enormous and highly unusual financial deals with the Chinese are another story altogether but it is worth noting that, everywhere then-Vice President Joe Biden went, his son seems to have benefitted from highly profitable business arrangements.”
Ask any American if that equals a quid pro quo, and the answer would be a resounding “yes.” Insert Trump in place of Biden, and the man would be behind bars. Is what transpired between Trump and Zelensky a conversation on which to hang an impeachment hat? Not according to Zelensky, who said:
“I don’t want us to look like beggars. But you have to understand. We’re at war. If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.”
The now-infamous chat between Trump and Zelensky has exposed an untenable situation for Joe Biden – who retains the lead by a small margin in the Democratic primary for president. Seemingly struggling in an arduous race, Biden is nevertheless the Swamp’s perfect offering to sink Trump. If the Dem elites sacrifice Joe, they may avoid future finger nibbling, hairy-leg stump speeches, and another humiliating loss in 2020. But the strategic calculation may be that if they admit Joe committed quid pro quo and link that to Trump’s phone call, they might be able to complete the Hail Mary pass and remove the president.
It’s a light-years-away longshot at best and another among the insanely desperate ploys becoming commonplace for the Democratic Party of late. But it won’t surprise the impeachment-exhausted electorate one bit.
As for the diplomatic relationship between Trump and Zelensky, it seems a bit tense but workable. Whereas Zelensky derided the president for calling his country “corrupt,” he defended the call as nothing more than two allies discussing a mutual rival. And that is all in a day’s business at the top of the leader board.
