    Three men who own corporate America
    by Jon Rappoport

    "Why did mega-corporations accept the lockdowns?
    I’m reprinting this article I wrote in July, 2020. Before I do, here is an analogy.

    Let’s say you own a company. You’re public, meaning you issue stock for sale.

    Suddenly, the fake pandemic hits. The governor of the state issues restrictions, including lockdowns. You have to close your doors. You’re going to take a staggering financial hit.

    Your first reaction? Anger. Seething anger. You’re determined to fight back. You call your lawyer to work out a plan.

    “Wait a minute,” he says. “I have some bad news. Do you know who is now the majority shareholder of your company? Bill Gates. And he has voting rights. If you object to the lockdowns, he’ll roast you alive. You’ll be out on your ass…”

    Buckle up. Here we go.


    Over the past 38 years working as a reporter, I’ve spoken with many medical people. Doctors, researchers, public health bureaucrats, business executives whose companies supply products to the medical industry, professors, etc.

    In every case, these people completely and utterly support conventional medical reality. They are unshakable. A man like Fauci says jump and they jump. To do otherwise would be unthinkable.

    As you read on, you’ll see why this is important…

    Airlines, hotel chains—you name it, they all folded when the lockdowns were imposed. They closed up shop, they took a knee, they opted for bailouts. Why?

    The CEOs of these corporations are supposed to be hard chargers and ruthless operators. Why didn’t they rebel?

    I could cite several reasons. Here I want to focus on a little-known and staggering story.

    Imagine an employee of a company is motivated to speak out against the lockdowns and go public. Then he thinks about the owner of the company. That owner happens to sit on the board of a large hospital.

    Uh oh. That owner is SOLIDLY WIRED into official medical reality. He isn’t going to appreciate a naysayer who says the lockdowns are a ridiculous and destructive overreach. Better to stay quiet. Better to fit in and go along.

    Well, it so happens that three of the most powerful corporate bosses in America DO have deep connections to major hospitals, and these three men run corporations that OWN CORPORATE AMERICA.


    The three men are Larry Fink, Joseph Hooley, and Mortimer Buckley.

    Buckley is the CEO of the Vanguard Group. Hooley is the CEO of State Street. Fink is the CEO of BlackRock.

    These three companies are titanic investment funds. Financial services companies.

    Buckley is a board member of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. From 2011 to 2017, he was chairman of the hospital’s board of trustees.

    Hooley serves on the president’s council of Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Fink is the co-chair of the NYU Langone Medical Center board of trustees.

    Let’s look at their investment funds: State Street, BlackRock, and Vanguard—known as The Big Three. The reference is an article at theconversation.com, “These three firms own corporate America,” 5/19/17, by Jan Fichtner, Eelke Heemskerk, and Javier Garcia-Bernardo.

    “Together, BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street have nearly US$11 trillion in assets under management.”

    “We found that the Big Three, taken together, have become the largest shareholder in 40% of all publicly listed firms in the United States.”

    “In 2015, these 1,600 American firms [the 40%] had combined revenues of about US$9.1 trillion, a market capitalisation of more than US$17 trillion, and employed more than 23.5 million people.”

    “In the S&P 500 – the benchmark index of America’s largest corporations – the situation is even more extreme. Together, the Big Three are the largest single shareholder in almost 90% of S&P 500 firms, including Apple, Microsoft, ExxonMobil, General Electric and Coca-Cola.”

    “What is undeniable is that the Big Three do exert the voting rights attached to these shares. Therefore, they have to be perceived as de facto owners by corporate executives.” (emphasis mine)

    “Whether or not they sought to, the Big Three have accumulated extraordinary shareholder power, and they continue to do so…In many respects, the index fund boom is turning BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street into something resembling low-cost public utilities with a quasi-monopolistic position.”

    If the CEO of a corporation whose main shareholder is The Big Three thinks about rebelling against the official COVID medical consensus…

    And he knows that The Big Three bosses are heavily wired into the US medical complex…

    That CEO has a HUGE reason to forget about being an old-time hard charger.

    He has a reason to swallow his anger when he’s told to lock down and shut down.

    He has a reason to knuckle under and play the game.

    He has a reason to surrender to a story about a virus and Fauci and Bill Gates.

    He has a reason to stand down and stand aside and watch economic devastation sweep over the land.


    It’s that stark.

    I keep telling you we’re now living in a medical civilization.

    From the financial side of things, you’ve just read how that is so.

    The three men who own corporate America are also medical denizens.

    Think it through."

    Breaking Fertility: Humanity's Future

    Breaking Fertility: Humanity's Future
    Free Content

    Have you seen the show The Handmaid's Tale? Actress Elizabeth Moss plays a handmaid when society was turned into chaos after environmental devastation that resulted in mass infertility, then followed by a Noahide law like theocratic, military government. It's funny how many movies and shows can seem predictive of the future as we look back. Well, we know of the depopulation and infertility programs that the patsy Bill Gates and the rest of his above top secret handlers and eugenicists have been doing to humanity for a long time. However, is the latest desperate push for 12-year-old’s and up to get the COVID-19 injections beyond the pale? Is this an agenda to sterilize our youth so they can never have children? Is this a potential reality we find ourselves in the present?

    I don’t say this light-heartedly, is humanity's future at stake? If any of these experts and brave doctors are correct in what they are warning us about, why would we not stop and look to see if our fertility is in jeopardy? If there's not a mandate for a moratorium, then why are we not AT LEAST testing after the shots if adults and now kids are becoming sterile? Are we able to accurately determine that we made a horrific decision by listening to our doctors? Do they even know if this could be the case? Is our reporting system out of control and does it seem to be continuously and deliberately misleading us? How could we even investigate this, if most are blindly going along with the manipulated VAERS reports?

    We will be getting to the bottom of these questions and more, as we interview visionary pioneer and a leading authority in the field of women’s health, Dr. Christiane Northrup, as well as one of America's outspoken Frontline Doctors, Dr. Stella Immanuel, to find out what is going on with these injections and if we are becoming infertile. Also, is nanotechnology bringing us further away from God? Are we awake enough to take action, if the lives of our children, our future, are in jeopardy? Or are we just going to stick our heads in the sand and hope this is not really happening?

    Well if you’re the gambling type, I guess you will have to play your odds if this is true or not. But if you’re the type that prefers to prepare for the worse and hope for the best, well the universe has a funny way of rewarding souls who see reality for what it is, and who step up into inspired action to make the changes necessary to better the odds in your favor. Humanity's ability to procreate? I say those are pretty high stakes. Do you think we should investigate this carefully and thoroughly before we give one more injection to our children? What are you willing to gamble?

    (Audio here: https://truthbitsblog.files.wordpres...rafficking.mp3

    Many hyperlinks in the article which I have not embedded here)

    "Douglas and Tyla Gabriel and Michael McKibben are the driving forces behind AIM4Truth.org and Americans4Innovation.blogspot.com, two of my favorite independent news websites, by some of the finest researchers on the Internet.

    I’m on a quest to understand how this Global Flu d’État was coordinated and pulled-off. While everybody else blames China, the Globalists or the Sabbatean/Illuminati for COVID, these three have maintained, since the very beginning that it is the British Crown, via the Pirbright Institute and QinetiQ that is the true villain of this whole story.

    First, the three take a look at the pandemic laws, because this is where Congress gave away US sovereignty. Doug says, “We gave away our entire nation to the World Heath Organization, which is the United Nations, which of course, is a British Institution.”

    These laws were reaffirmed several times; in 2006, 2013, 2019 and then in the 116th Congress and each time, they were made broader and broader.

    The first, in 2006 is called the Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness Acts of 2006, which came under the Public Health Service Act and gave the power to manage all manner of emergencies – without ever defining what emergencies are – to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response at the US Department of Health and Human Services. Four people have held this position since the pandemic began. The current person in that role is Nikki Bratcher-Bowman, a 31-year veteran at HHS.

    Whereas, previous laws had called for a review after 90 days of whether a pandemic is still a pandemic after it’s been declared, the 2006 Act did not establish any such limit.

    In 2013, they added language to establish that if the World Health Organization declares anything, the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health must follow the WHO’s directive – and as we know, the WHO is currently led by Tedros Adhanom, a rabid Communist and a personal friend of both Bill Gates and Xi Jinping.

    This law is how we lost our sovereignty. A foreign power now gets to decide if we shut down the economy. Mike says it’s unconstitutional and it should be declared null and void. Doug says that anybody who voted for this should be locked up in Gitmo for Treason.

    The 2016 update to this legislation, the 21st Century Cures Act, written by 1,400 lobbyists representing 400 Big Pharma companies, to benefit those who would stand to gain from a pandemic, focused entirely on “breakthrough” therapies and vaccines (i.e., drugs with patents owned by the CDC, NIH or Fauci, himself) and removed any remaining liability Big Pharma had left over from the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.

    In 2019, it was updated again, with the Pandemic and All-Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act. “Advancing Innovation” means they get to experiment on us. This is how we end up with mRNA injections, Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles (SPIONS) and manipulative magnetic nanoparticles and zero liability for the Big Pharma companies for this garbage.

    Doug says it gets worse. The “All-Hazards” part of this legislation’s name refers to the injected people who are now ambulatory hazards spreading Transmissable Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs) aka prion diseases. Once you’ve had the vaxx, you’re now a hazard to yourself and to everyone you’re in contact with.

    He reminds us that Mad Cow Disease (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) escaped from the lab at the Pirbright Institute and it was transmissable, causing Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease in humans.

    He says, “They just stopped the pilots in Britain from flying planes, because why? Because they’re hazards – and it’s in this law. And you don’t have any rights, Folks, until this law is rescinded and the people who passed them are held accountable.”

    He says, the term, “Preparedness” in the legislation refers to calling out the military and police to enforce this. Previously, only governors could do this but now, the DOD can.

    He says last year, Big Pharma spent $2.9 billion lobbying Washington DC and that for every $1 spent on research, Big Pharma spends $19 on advertising (aka propaganda). He calls it the biggest racket in America, making up 20% of the US’ GDP and we no longer have any Constitutional rights until Acting Assistant Secretary Nikki Bratcher-Bowman says the pandemic is over.

    Mike then launches into some bigtime dot-connecting that links the British East India Company, the African slave-trading families, Kamala Harris’ great-great-grandfather, Boris Johnson’s wife, Barclays Bank, JP Morgan, the Velvet Mafia, the YMCA, Jeffrey Epstein and the global child-trafficking network that is now in control of the US Southern Border.

    Doug gets into the 800,000 young people, mostly girls who go missing in America every year and how “Twice, China sent…their largest troop carriers empty to Syria, saying, ‘Hey, we’re here to help,'” and 1.4 million Syrian refugees went missing after the two trips of those troop carriers. “In other words, they were sold to China.” Over 2 million Uyghurs have gone missing in China.

    The British East India Company lay dormant for many years but it was revived in 2018, according to corporate filings that Mike has seen. To Tyla, this means they’re getting ready to “Proclaim that they’ve taken over the whole world and that…the American Experiment was just a little speed bump. They will get rid of us and annihilate that in all the history books, any mention of America and who we are.”

    Mike says, “Now, we’ve come full circle, here of ‘Why Jeffrey Epstein?’ I get the idea that people can be blackmailed but what we’re seeing now is a systemic understanding the British have had about how to abuse, in order to get those people to do their will over a long period of time. In other words, they’re experts at it…

    “We can see that the self-anointed elitists within Britain have believed since 1600 that they were destined to rule the world and they learned that sexual abuse was a key element in keeping control of whole societies and that is exactly what they’ve done and they carried it out with the YMCA, right in plain sight…Jeffrey Epstein was just carrying on a long and strong tradition.”

    Doug says, “The YMCA, YWCA, Salvation Army, USO, the Society of the Elect, the City of London, Marxism, Communism, Fascism and Imperialism were all born in London, period.”

    Mike responds, “What we’re seeing is here is the replacement for slavery by the British was the genesis of the Settlement Movement, Communism, Socialism, Fabianism; they were looking for a way to make slaves out of people by some “-ism” and they didn’t really care whether it was Fascism or Communism. Those were all creations of this replacement of the British Empire with a new way of subduing the citizens of the country they dominated. That’s what we’re seeing.”

    Doug chimes in, “And we know that to do that, you have to have the best propaganda available to mankind…”

    Doug, Tyla and Mike only deal in indictable evidence and this podcast manages to be delightful, in spite of the direness of the topic. I love these guys so much! It’s worth every minute of your time."

    Today's Situation Update from Mike Adams (54 mins) summarizes perfectly what has happened. (Unlike many of Mike's updates, this is concise, to the point, sticks to topic, and his very bad jokes are absent.)

    At 36:15, the update morphs into a special report about gun confiscation. He suggests that the land invasion of the US, as has been repeatedly warned about by J.R Nyquist (see this excellent video interview), wouldn't happen until the citizens were disarmed.

    Unregulated Investment Firm BlackRock: More Political and Financial Influence than the Federal Reserve and Most Governments
    There is More to BlackRock Than You Might Imagine
    F. William Engdahl
    June 28, 2021

    (Facebook would not allow me to share this article.)

    "A virtually unregulated investment firm today exercises more political and financial influence than the Federal Reserve and most governments on this planet.

    The firm, BlackRock Inc., the world’s largest asset manager, invests a staggering $9 trillion in client funds worldwide, a sum more than double the annual GDP of the Federal Republic of Germany.

    This colossus sits atop the pyramid of world corporate ownership, including in China most recently.

    Since 1988 the company has put itself in a position to de facto control the Federal Reserve, most Wall Street mega-banks, including Goldman Sachs, the Davos World Economic Forum Great Reset, the Biden Administration and, if left unchecked, the economic future of our world.

    BlackRock is the epitome of what Mussolini called Corporatism, where an unelected corporate elite dictates top down to the population.

    How the world’s largest “shadow bank” exercises this enormous power over the world ought to concern us.

    BlackRock since Larry Fink founded it in 1988 has managed to assemble unique financial software and assets that no other entity has.

    BlackRock’s Aladdin risk-management system, a software tool that can track and analyze trading, monitors more than $18 trillion in assets for 200 financial firms including the Federal Reserve and European central banks.

    He who “monitors” also knows, we can imagine. BlackRock has been called a financial “Swiss Army Knife — institutional investor, money manager, private equity firm, and global government partner rolled into one.”

    Yet mainstream media treats the company as just another Wall Street financial firm.

    There is a seamless interface that ties the UN Agenda 2030 with the Davos World Economic Forum Great Reset and the nascent economic policies of the Biden Administration.

    That interface is BlackRock.

    Team Biden and BlackRock
    By now it should be clear to anyone who bothers to look, that the person who claims to be US President, 78-year old Joe Biden, is not making any decisions.

    He even has difficulty reading a teleprompter or answering prepared questions from friendly media without confusing Syria and Libya or even whether he is President.

    He is being micromanaged by a group of handlers to maintain a scripted “image” of a President while policy is made behind the scenes by others. It eerily reminds of the 1979 Peter Sellers film character, Chauncey Gardiner, in Being There.

    What is less public are the key policy persons running economic policy for Biden Inc. They are simply said, BlackRock.

    Much as Goldman Sachs ran economic policy under Obama and also Trump, today BlackRock is filling that key role. The deal apparently was sealed in January, 2019 when Joe Biden, then-candidate and long-shot chance to defeat Trump, went to meet with Larry Fink in New York, who reportedly told “working class Joe,” that, “I’m here to help.”

    Now as President in one of his first appointees, Biden named Brian Deese to be the Director of the National Economic Council, the President’s main adviser for economic policy.

    One of the early Presidential Executive Orders dealt with economics and climate policy. That’s not surprising, as Deese came from Fink’s BlackRock where he was Global Head of Sustainable Investing.

    Before joining BlackRock, Deese held senior economic posts under Obama, including replacing John Podesta as Senior Adviser to the President where he worked alongside Valerie Jarrett. Under Obama, Deese played a key role in negotiating the Global Warming Paris Accords.

    In the key policy post as Deputy Treasury Secretary under Secretary Janet Yellen, we find Nigerian-born Adewale “Wally” Adeyemo. Adeyemo also comes from BlackRock where from 2017 to 2019 he was a senior adviser and Chief of Staff to BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, after leaving the Obama Administration. His personal ties to Obama are strong, as Obama named him the first President of the Obama Foundation in 2019.

    And a third senior BlackRock person running economic policy in the Administration now is also unusual in several respects. Michael Pyle is the Senior Economic Adviser to Vice President Kamala Harris.

    He came to Washington from the position as the Global Chief Investment Strategist at BlackRock where he oversaw the strategy for investing some $9 trillion of funds.

    Before joining BlackRock at the highest level, he had also been in the Obama Administration as a senior adviser to the Undersecretary of the Treasury for International Affairs, and in 2015 became an adviser to the Hillary Clinton presidential bid.

    The fact that three of the most influential economic appointees of the Biden Administration come from BlackRock, and before that all from the Obama Administration, is noteworthy. There is a definite pattern and suggests that the role of BlackRock in Washington is far larger than we are being told.

    What is BlackRock?
    Never before has a financial company with so much influence over world markets been so hidden from public scrutiny.

    That’s no accident.

    As it is technically not a bank making bank loans or taking deposits, it evades the regulation oversight from the Federal Reserve even though it does what most mega banks like HSBC or JP MorganChase do—buy, sell securities for profit.

    When there was a Congressional push to include asset managers such as BlackRock and Vanguard Funds under the post-2008 Dodd-Frank law as “systemically important financial institutions” or SIFIs, a huge lobbying push from BlackRock ended the threat.

    BlackRock is essentially a law onto itself. And indeed it is “systemically important” as no other, with possible exception of Vanguard, which is said to also be a major shareholder in BlackRock.

    BlackRock founder and CEO Larry Fink is clearly interested in buying influence globally.

    He made former German CDU MP Friederich Merz head of BlackRock Germany when it looked as if he might succeed Chancellor Merkel, and former British Chancellor of Exchequer George Osborne as “political consultant.”

    Fink named former Hillary Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills to the BlackRock board when it seemed certain Hillary would soon be in the White House.

    He has named former central bankers to his board and gone on to secure lucrative contracts with their former institutions. Stanley Fisher, former head of the Bank of Israel and also later Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve is now Senior Adviser at BlackRock.

    Philipp Hildebrand, former Swiss National Bank president, is vice chairman at BlackRock, where he oversees the BlackRock Investment Institute. Jean Boivin, the former deputy governor of the Bank of Canada, is the global head of research at BlackRock’s investment institute.

    BlackRock and the Fed
    It was this ex-central bank team at BlackRock that developed an “emergency” bailout plan for Fed chairman Powell in March 2019 as financial markets appeared on the brink of another 2008 “Lehman crisis” meltdown.

    As “thank you,” the Fed chairman Jerome Powell named BlackRock in a no-bid role to manage all of the Fed’s corporate bond purchase programs, including bonds where BlackRock itself invests.

    Conflict of interest?

    A group of some 30 NGOs wrote to Fed Chairman Powell,

    “By giving BlackRock full control of this debt buyout program, the Fed… makes BlackRock even more systemically important to the financial system. Yet BlackRock is not subject to the regulatory scrutiny of even smaller systemically important financial institutions.”

    In a detailed report in 2019, a Washington non-profit research group, Campaign for Accountability, noted that,

    “BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, implemented a strategy of lobbying, campaign contributions, and revolving door hires to fight off government regulation and establish itself as one of the most powerful financial companies in the world.”

    The New York Fed hired BlackRock in March 2019 to manage its commercial mortgage-backed securities program and its $750 billion primary and secondary purchases of corporate bonds and ETFs in no-bid contracts.

    US financial journalists Pam and Russ Martens in critiquing that murky 2019 Fed bailout of Wall Street remarked,

    “for the first time in history, the Fed has hired BlackRock to “go direct” and buy up $750 billion in both primary and secondary corporate bonds and bond ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds), a product of which BlackRock is one of the largest purveyors in the world.”

    They went on,

    “Adding further outrage, the BlackRock-run program will get $75 billion of the $454 billion in taxpayers’ money to eat the losses on its corporate bond purchases, which will include its own ETFs, which the Fed is allowing it to buy…”

    Fed head Jerome Powell and Larry Fink know each other well, apparently.

    Even after Powell gave BlackRock the hugely lucrative no-bid “go direct” deal, Powell continued to have the same BlackRock manage an estimated $25 million of Powell’s private securities investments.

    Public records show that in this time Powell held direct confidential phone calls with BlackRock CEO Fink. According to required financial disclosure, BlackRock managed to double the value of Powell’s investments from the year before!

    No conflict of interest, or?

    A Very BlackRock in Mexico
    BlackRock’s murky history in Mexico shows that conflicts of interest and influence-building with leading government agencies is not restricted to just the USA.

    PRI Presidential candidate Peña Nieto went to Wall Street during his campaign in November 2011. There he met Larry Fink.

    What followed the Nieto victory in 2012 was a tight relationship between Fink and Nieto that was riddled with conflict of interest, cronyism and corruption.

    Most likely to be certain BlackRock was on the winning side in the corrupt new Nieto regime, Fink named 52-year-old Marcos Antonio Slim Domit, billionaire son of Mexico’s wealthiest and arguably most corrupt man, Carlos Slim, to BlackRock’s Board.

    Marcos Antonio, along with his brother Carlos Slim Domit, run the father’s huge business empire today. Carlos Slim Domit, the eldest son, was Co-Chair of the World Economic Forum Latin America in 2015, and currently serves as chairman of the board of America Movil where BlackRock is a major investor.

    Small cozy world.

    The father, Carlos Slim, at the time named by Forbes as World’s Richest Person, built an empire based around his sweetheart acquisition of Telemex (later America Movil).

    Then President, Carlos Salinas de Gortari, in effect gifted the telecom empire to Slim in 1989. Salinas later fled Mexico on charges of stealing more than $10 billion from state coffers.

    As with much in Mexico since the 1980s drug money apparently played a huge role with the elder Carlos Slim, father of BlackRock director Marcos Slim.

    In 2015 WikiLeaks released company internal emails from the private intelligence corporation, Stratfor.

    Stratfor writes in an April 2011 email, the time BlackRock is establishing its Mexico plans, that a US DEA Special Agent, William F. Dionne confirmed Carlos Slim’s ties to the Mexican drug cartels. Stratfor asks Dionne,

    “Billy, is the MX (Mexican) billionaire Carlos Slim linked to the narcos?”

    Dionne replies,

    “Regarding your question, the MX telecommunication billionaire is.”

    In a country where 44% of the population lives in poverty you don’t become the world’s richest man in just two decades selling Girl Scout cookies.

    Fink and Mexican PPP
    With Marcos Slim on his BlackRock board and new president Enrique Peña Nieto, Larry Fink’s Mexican partner in Nieto Peña’s $590 billion PublicPrivatePartnership (PPP) alliance, BlackRock, was ready to reap the harvest.

    To fine-tune his new Mexican operations, Fink named former Mexican Undersecretary of Finance Gerardo Rodriguez Regordosa to direct BlackRock Emerging Market Strategy in 2013.

    Then in 2016 Peña Nieto appointed Isaac Volin, then head of BlackRock Mexico to be No. 2 at PEMEX where he presided over corruption, scandals and the largest loss in PEMEX history, $38 billion.

    Peña Nieto had opened the huge oil state monopoly, PEMEX, to private investors for the first time since nationalization in the 1930s. The first to benefit was Fink’s BlackRock.

    Within seven months, BlackRock had secured $1 billion in PEMEX energy projects, many as the only bidder.

    During the tenure of Peña Nieto, one of the most controversial and least popular presidents, BlackRock prospered by the cozy ties. It soon was engaged in highly profitable (and corrupt) infrastructure projects under Peña Nieto including not only oil and gas pipelines and wells but also including toll roads, hospitals, gas pipelines and even prisons.

    Notably, BlackRock’s Mexican “friend” Peña Nieto was also “friends” not only with Carlos Slim but with the head of the notorious Sinaloa Cartel, “El Chapo” Guzman.

    In court testimony in 2019 in New York Alex Cifuentes, a Colombian drug lord who has described himself as El Chapo’s “right-hand man,” testified that just after his election in 2012, Peña Nieto had requested $250 million from the Sinaloa Cartel before settling on $100 million.

    We can only guess what for.

    Larry Fink and WEF Great Reset
    In 2019 Larry Fink joined the Board of the Davos World Economic Forum, the Swiss-based organization that for some 40 years has advanced economic globalization.

    Fink, who is close to the WEF’s technocrat head, Klaus Schwab, of Great Reset notoriety, now stands positioned to use the huge weight of BlackRock to create what is potentially, if it doesn’t collapse before, the world’s largest Ponzi scam, ESG corporate investing.

    Fink with $9 trillion to leverage is pushing the greatest shift of capital in history into a scam known as ESG Investing.

    The UN “sustainable economy” agenda is being realized quietly by the very same global banks which have created the financial crises in 2008.

    This time they are preparing the Klaus Schwab WEF Great Reset by steering hundreds of billions and soon trillions in investment to their hand-picked “woke” companies, and away from the “not woke” such as oil and gas companies or coal.

    BlackRock since 2018 has been in the forefront to create a new investment infrastructure that picks “winners” or “losers” for investment according to how serious that company is about ESG—Environment, Social values and Governance.

    For example a company gets positive ratings for the seriousness of its hiring gender diverse management and employees, or takes measures to eliminate their carbon “footprint” by making their energy sources green or sustainable to use the UN term.

    How corporations contribute to a global sustainable governance is the most vague of the ESG, and could include anything from corporate donations to Black Lives Matter to supporting UN agencies such as WHO.

    Oil companies like ExxonMobil or coal companies no matter how clear are doomed as Fink and friends now promote their financial Great Reset or Green New Deal. This is why he cut a deal with the Biden presidency in 2019.

    Follow the money. And we can expect that the New York Times will cheer BlackRock on as it destroys the world financial structures.

    Since 2017 BlackRock has been the paper’s largest shareholder. Carlos Slim was second largest.

    Even Carl Icahn, a ruthless Wall Street asset stripper, once called BlackRock,

    “an extremely dangerous company… I used to say, you know, the mafia has a better code of ethics than you guys.”

    Curious as to what you mean about promoting DMT?

    Nobody is going to get addicted to DMT, provides a glimmer of the possibilities of existence.

    I don't really see it having anything in common with other drugs.

    I went to the Home Depot today to buy seeds, continuing my usual prepping. I women at the register was clearly shaken and upset.

    Feel free to move this to the most appropriate thread.

    A LEADING testing company has been accused of dumping thousands of returned Covid tests in the bin while issuing fit-to-fly certificates to customers.

    RT Diagnostics has advertised the government-approved test kits for up to £79 ($107).

    It is claimed the tests are left in boxes and not processed. But a Sun investigation has uncovered claims that many of the tests are simply left lying around in boxes without being processed.

    The Halifax-based firm is understood to be receiving as many as 10,000 per day as holiday makers snap up the tests, which legally they need to let them go abroad.

    One family said they received negative results for a Day 8 test before the date they were due.

    And a shocked worker at the firm, claimed: “The staff are not testing all the samples but people are being told their results are negative. This is very serious.

    “Their customers could be spreading the virus around completely unaware.”

    Last night former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt demanded an urgent probe.

    The whistleblower claimed the unprocessed test kits are dumped
    'put in black plastic bags and dumped at the back of the offices
    He said: “This is shocking and also highly dangerous in the battle against Covid. There needs to be an immediate investigation and, if appropriate, charges brought.”

    Shocking video footage filmed by a whistle-blower appears to show thousands of testing kits piled high in cardboard boxes and dumped to one side without being opened. 

    The worker claimed: “They’re then put in black plastic bags and dumped at the back of the offices.

    “At one point the back looked like a landfill site, there were that many bags. It’s appalling.”

    Customers have told how they were left chasing their results for days before being sent certificates. 

    And staff handling the sensitive tests were filmed not wearing any personal protective equipment before tossing the tubes into boxes. 

    Action Fraud — which works with the police — said it had received complaints about the firm, run by Labour councillor Faisal Shoukat. 

    In total, the agency has sent 33 reports from customers of potential fake Covid test certificates to the Cabinet Office for review, although it is not clear how many relate to Mr Shoukat’s firm. 

    Furious customers have set up a Facebook page with 450 members to share their complaints.

    Too funny - I guess many people are not realizing the real truth of this situation.

    Like a friend of ours that went and got the toxic jab, then about 3 days later ended up in the hospital. And said afterward, "I guess I had caught the virus before I got the vaccine and just didn't know it."

    This Biden Proposal Could Make US a 'Digital Dictatorship'
    by Whitney Webb
    July 23, 2021

    President Biden is calling for a “new biomedical research agency” that would operate under the guise of treatments for chronic diseases, but which, if implemented, would merge national security with health security
    The plan would suck up masses of private data from “Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echo, and Google Home” and other consumer electronic devices, as well as information from health care providers to determine if an individual might be likely to commit a crime
    The plan also would work toward merging “biology, engineering and computer science to harness the power of natural systems for national security” along with “advancements in biotechnology, supercomputing, big data and artificial intelligence” to accomplish its goals
    In the interests of national safety, the Department of Defense wants everyone to have biometric wearables that could monitor 165 different biomarkers using an algorithm that could “recognize an infection or virus around 48 hours before the onset of symptoms”
    Ultimately, promoters of the technology want to “develop tools to record, mark and manipulate precisely defined neurons in the living brain” that are determined to be linked to an “abnormal” function or a neurological disease

    A “new” proposal by the Biden administration to create a health-focused federal agency modeled after DARPA is not what it appears to be. Promoted as a way to “end cancer,” this resuscitated “health DARPA” conceals a dangerous agenda.

    [April 28, 2020], President Biden was widely praised in mainstream and health-care–focused media for his call to create a “new biomedical research agency” modeled after the U.S. military’s “high-risk, high-reward” Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. As touted by the president, the agency would seek to develop “innovative” and “breakthrough” treatments for cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes, with a call to “end cancer as we know it.”

    Far from “ending cancer” in the way most Americans might envision it, the proposed agency would merge “national security” with “health security” in such a way as to use both physical and mental health “warning signs” to prevent outbreaks of disease or violence before they occur. Such a system is a recipe for a technocratic “pre-crime” organization with the potential to criminalize both mental and physical illness as well as “wrongthink.”

    The Biden administration has asked Congress for $6.5 billion to fund the agency, which would be largely guided by Biden’s recently confirmed top science adviser, Eric Lander.

    Lander, formerly the head of the Silicon Valley-dominated Broad Institute, has been controversial for his ties to eugenicist and child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his relatively recent praise for James Watson, an overtly racist eugenicist. Despite that, Lander is set to be confirmed by the Senate and Congress and is reportedly significantly enthusiastic about the proposed new “health DARPA.”

    This new agency, set to be called ARPA-H or HARPA, would be housed within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and would raise the NIH budget to over $51 billion. Unlike other agencies at NIH, ARPA-H would differ in that the projects it funds would not be peer reviewed prior to approval; instead, hand-picked program managers would make all funding decisions. Funding would also take the form of milestone-driven payments instead of the more traditional multiyear grants.

    ARPA-H will likely heavily fund and promote mRNA vaccines as one of the “breakthroughs” that will cure cancer. Some of the mRNA vaccine manufacturers that have produced some of the most widely used COVID-19 vaccines, such as the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, stated just last month that “cancer is the next problem to tackle with mRNA tech” post-COVID.

    BioNTech has been developing mRNA gene therapies for cancer for years and is collaborating with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to create mRNA-based treatments for tuberculosis and HIV. Other “innovative” technologies that will be a focus of this agency are less well known to the public and arguably more concerning.

    The Long Road to ARPA-H
    ARPA-H is not a new and exclusive Biden administration idea; there was a previous attempt to create a “health DARPA” during the Trump administration in late 2019. Biden began to promote the idea during his presidential campaign as early as June 2019, albeit using a very different justification for the agency than what had been pitched by its advocates to Trump.

    In 2019, the same foundation and individuals currently backing Biden’s ARPA-H had urged then-President Trump to create “HARPA,” not for the main purpose of researching treatments for cancer and Alzheimer’s, but to stop mass shootings before they happen through the monitoring of Americans for “neuropsychiatric” warning signs.

    Still from HARPA’s video “The Patients Are Waiting: How HARPA Will Change Lives Now”, Source: harpa.org

    For the last few years, one man has been the driving force behind HARPA — former vice chair of General Electric and former president of NBCUniversal, Robert Wright. Through the Suzanne Wright Foundation (named for his late wife), Wright has spent years lobbying for an agency that “would develop biomedical capabilities — detection tools, treatments, medical devices, cures, etc. — for the millions of Americans who are not benefiting from the current system.”

    While he, like Biden, has cloaked the agency’s actual purpose by claiming it will be mainly focused on treating cancer, Wright’s 2019 proposal to his personal friend Donald Trump revealed its underlying ambitions.

    As first proposed by Wright in 2019, the flagship program of HARPA would be SAFE HOME, short for Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events by Helping Overcome Mental Extremes.

    SAFE HOME would suck up masses of private data from “Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echo, and Google Home” and other consumer electronic devices, as well as information from health care providers to determine if an individual might be likely to commit a crime. The data would be analyzed by artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms “for early diagnosis of neuropsychiatric violence.”

    The Department of Justice’s pre-crime approach known as DEEP was activated just months before Trump left office; it was also justified as a way to “stop mass shootings before they happen.” Soon after Biden’s inauguration, the new administration began using information from social media to make pre-crime arrests as part of its approach toward combating “domestic terror.”

    Given the history of Silicon Valley companies collaborating with the government on matters of warrantless surveillance, it appears that aspects of SAFE HOME may already be covertly active under Biden, only waiting for the formalization of ARPA-H/HARPA to be legitimized as public policy.

    The national-security applications of Robert Wright’s HARPA are also illustrated by the man who was its lead scientific adviser — former head of DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office Geoffrey Ling. Not only is Ling the main scientific adviser of HARPA, but the original proposal by Wright would have Ling both personally design HARPA and lead it once it was established.

    A Plan to Merge Biology, Engineering and Computer Science
    Ling’s work at DARPA can be summarized by BTO’s stated mission, which is to work toward merging “biology, engineering and computer science to harness the power of natural systems for national security.” BTO-favored technologies are also poised to be the mainstays of HARPA, which plans to specifically use “advancements in biotechnology, supercomputing, big data and artificial intelligence” to accomplish its goals.

    The direct DARPA connection to HARPA underscores that the agenda behind this coming agency dates back to the failed Bio-Surveillance project of DARPA’s Total Information Awareness program, which was launched after the events of September 11, 2001.

    TIA’s Bio-Surveillance project sought to develop the “necessary information technologies and resulting prototype capable of detecting the covert release of a biological pathogen automatically, and significantly earlier than traditional approaches,” accomplishing this “by monitoring nontraditional data sources” including “prediagnostic medical data” and “behavioral indicators.”

    While nominally focused on “bioterrorist attacks,” TIA’s Bio-Surveillance project also sought to acquire early detection capabilities for “normal” disease outbreaks. Bio-Surveillance and related DARPA projects at the time, such as LifeLog, sought to harvest data through the mass use of some sort of wearable or handheld technology.

    These DARPA programs were ultimately shut down due to the controversy over claims they would be used to profile domestic dissidents and eliminate privacy for all Americans in the US.

    That DARPA’s past total surveillance dragnet is coming back to life under a supposedly separate health-focused agency, and one that emulates its organizational model no less, confirms that many TIA-related programs were merely distanced from the Department of Defense when officially shut down.

    By separating the military from the public image of such technologies and programs, it made them more palatable to the masses, despite the military remaining heavily involved behind the scenes.

    As Unlimited Hangout has recently reported, major aspects of TIA were merely privatized, giving rise to companies such as Facebook and Palantir, which resulted in such DARPA projects being widely used and accepted. Now, under the guise of the proposed ARPA-H, DARPA’s original TIA would essentially be making a comeback for all intents and purposes as its own spin-off.

    Silicon Valley, the Military and the Wearable ‘Revolution’
    This most recent effort to create ARPA-H/HARPA combines well with the coordinated push of Silicon Valley companies into the field of health care, specifically Silicon Valley companies that double as contractors to U.S. intelligence and/or the military (e.g., Microsoft, Google and Amazon).

    During the COVID-19 crisis, this trend toward Silicon Valley dominance of the health-care sector has accelerated considerably due to a top-down push toward digitalization with telemedicine, remote monitoring and the like.

    One interesting example is Amazon, which launched a wearable last year that purports to not only use biometrics to monitor people’s physical health and fitness, but to track their emotional state as well. The previous year, Amazon acquired the online pharmacy PillPack, and it is not hard to imagine a scenario in which data from Amazon’s Halo wellness band is used to offer treatment recommendations that are then supplied by Amazon-owned PillPack.

    Companies such as Amazon, Palantir and Google are set to be intimately involved in ARPA-H’s activities. In particular, Google, which launched numerous health-tech initiatives in 2020, is set to have a major role in this new agency due to its long-standing ties to the Obama administration when Biden was vice president and to President Biden’s top science adviser, Eric Lander.

    As mentioned, Lander is poised to play a major role in ARPA-H/HARPA if and when it materializes. Before becoming the top scientist in the country, Lander was president and founding director of the Broad Institute.

    While advertised as a partnership between MIT and Harvard, the Broad Institute is heavily influenced by Silicon Valley, with two former Google executives on its board, a partner of Silicon Valley venture capital firm Greylock Partners, and the former CEO of IBM, as well as some of its top endowments coming from prominent tech executives.

    Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who was intimately involved with Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign and who is close to the Democratic Party in general, chairs the Broad Institute as of this April [2021]. In March 2021, Schmidt gave the institute $150 million to “connect biology and machine learning for understanding programs of life.”

    During his time on the Broad Institute board, Schmidt also chaired the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence, a group of mostly Silicon Valley, intelligence and military operatives who have now charted the direction of the U.S. government’s policies on emerging tech and AI. Schmidt was also pitched as potential head of a tech-industry task force by the Biden administration.

    Government and Public and Private Agencies Team Up

    Earlier, in January [2021], the Broad Institute announced that its health-research platform, Terra, which was built with Google subsidiary Verily, would partner with Microsoft. As a result, Terra now allows Google and Microsoft to access a vast trove of genomic data that is poured into the platform by academics and research institutions from around the world.

    In addition, last September [2020], Google teamed up with the Department of Defense as part of a new AI-driven “predictive health” program that also has links to the US intelligence community. While initially focused on predicting cancer cases, this initiative clearly plans to expand to predicting the onset of other diseases before symptoms appear, including COVID-19.

    As noted by Unlimited Hangout at the time, one of the ulterior motives for the program, from Google’s perspective, was for Google to gain access to “the largest repository of disease- and cancer-related medical data in the world,” which is held by the Defense Health Agency. Having exclusive access to this data is a huge boon for Google in its effort to develop and expand its growing suite of AI health-care products.

    The military is currently being used to pilot COVID-19-related biometric wearables for “returning to work safely.” Last December [2020], it was announced that Hill Air Force Base in Utah would make biometric wearables a mandatory part of the uniform for some squadrons. For example, the airmen of the Air Force’s 649th Munitions Squadron must now wear a smart watch made by Garmin and a smart ring made by Oura as part of their uniform.

    According to the Air Force, these devices detect biometric indicators that are then analyzed for 165 different biomarkers by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency/Philips Healthcare AI algorithm that “attempts to recognize an infection or virus around 48 hours before the onset of symptoms.”

    The development of that algorithm began well before the COVID-19 crisis and is a recent iteration of a series of military research projects that appear to have begun under the 2007 DARPA Predicting Health and Disease (PHD) project.

    While of interest to the military, these wearables are primarily intended for mass use — a big step toward the infrastructure needed for the resurrection of a biosurveillance program to be run by the national-security state.

    Starting first with the military makes sense from the national-security apparatus’s perspective, as the ability to monitor biometric data, including emotions, has obvious appeal for those managing the recently expanded “insider threat” programs in the military and the Department of Homeland Security.

    One indicator of the push for mass use is that the same Oura smart ring being used by the Air Force was also recently utilized by the NBA to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks among basketball players.

    Prior to COVID-19, it was promoted for consumer use by members of the British Royal family and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for improving sleep. As recently as last Monday [April 26, 2021], Oura’s CEO, Harpeet Rai, said that the entire future of wearable health tech will soon be “proactive rather than reactive” because it will focus on predicting disease based on biometric data obtained from wearables in real time.

    Another wearable tied to the military that is creeping into mass use is the BioButton and its predecessor the BioSticker. Produced by the company BioIntelliSense, the sleek new BioButton is advertised as a wearable system that is “a scalable and cost-effective solution for COVID-19 symptom monitoring at school, home and work.” BioIntelliSense received $2.8 million from the Pentagon last December to develop the BioButton and BioSticker wearables for COVID-19.

    BioIntelliSense, cofounded and led by former Microsoft HealthVault developer James Mault, now has its wearable sensors being rolled out for widespread use on some college campuses and at some U.S. hospitals. In some of those instances, the company’s wearables are being used to specifically monitor the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine as opposed to symptoms of COVID-19 itself.

    BioIntelliSense is currently running a study, partnered with Philips Healthcare and the University of Colorado, on the use of its wearables for early COVID-19 detection, which is entirely funded by the US military.

    While the use of these wearables is currently “encouraged but optional” at these pilot locations, could there come a time when they are mandated in a workplace or by a government? It would not be unheard of, as several countries have already required foreign arrivals to be monitored through use of a wearable during a mandatory quarantine period. Saint Lucia is currently using BioButton for this purpose.

    Singapore, which seeks to be among the first “smart nations” in the world, has given every single one of its residents a wearable called a “TraceTogether token” for its contact-tracing program. Either the wearable token or the TraceTogether smartphone app is mandatory for all workplaces, shopping malls, hotels, schools, health care facilities, grocery stores and hair salons. Those without access to a smartphone are expected to use the “free” government-issued wearable token.

    The Era of Digital Dictatorships Is Nearly Here
    Making mandatory wearables the new normal not just for COVID-19 prevention, but for monitoring health in general, would institutionalize quarantining people who have no symptoms of an illness but only an opaque algorithm’s determination that vital signs indicate “abnormal” activity.

    Given that no AI is 100% accurate and that AI is only as good as the data it is trained on, such a system would be guaranteed to make regular errors: The question is how many.

    One AI algorithm being used to “predict COVID-19 outbreaks” in Israel and some U.S. states is marketed by Diagnostic Robotics; the (likely inflated) accuracy rate the company provides for its product is only 73 percent. That means, by the company’s own admission, their AI is wrong 27 percent of the time. Probably, it is even less accurate, as the 73 percent figure has never been independently verified.

    Adoption of these technologies has benefited from the COVID-19 crisis, as supporters are seizing the opportunity to accelerate their introduction. As a result, their use will soon become ubiquitous if this advancing agenda continues unimpeded.

    Though this push for wearables is obvious now, signs of this agenda were visible several years ago. In 2018, for instance, insurer John Hancock announced that it would replace its life insurance offerings with “interactive policies” that involve individuals having their health monitored by commercial health wearables.

    Insurance Companies Push for ‘Fitness’ Wearables

    Prior to that announcement, John Hancock and other insurers such as Aetna, Cigna, and UnitedHealthcare offered various rewards for policyholders who wore a fitness wearable and shared that data with their insurance company.

    In another pre-COVID example, the Journal of the American Medical Association published an article in August 2019 that claimed that wearables “encourage healthy behaviors and empower individuals to participate in their health.” The authors of the article, who are affiliated with Harvard, further claimed that “incentivizing use of these devices [wearables] by integrating them in insurance policies” may be an “attractive” policy approach.

    The use of wearables for policyholders has since been heavily promoted by the insurance industry, both prior to and after COVID-19, and some speculate that health insurers could soon mandate their use in certain cases or as a broader policy.

    These biometric “fitness” devices — such as Amazon’s Halo — can monitor more than your physical vital signs, however, as they can also monitor your emotional state. ARPA-H/HARPA’s flagship SAFE HOME program reveals that the ability to monitor thoughts and feelings is an already existing goal of those seeking to establish this new agency.

    According to World Economic Forum luminary and historian Yuval Noah Harari, the transition to “digital dictatorships” will have a “big watershed” moment once governments “start monitoring and surveying what is happening inside your body and inside your brain.”

    He says that the mass adoption of such technology would make human beings “hackable animals,” while those who abstain from having this technology on or in their bodies would become part of a new “useless” class. Harari has also asserted that biometric wearables will someday be used by governments to target individuals who have the “wrong” emotional reactions to government leaders.

    Unsurprisingly, one of Harari’s biggest fans, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, has recently led his company into the development of a comprehensive biometric and “neural” wearable based on technology from a “neural interface” start-up that Facebook acquired in 2019.

    Per Facebook, the wearable “will integrate with AR [augmented reality], VR [virtual reality], and human neural signals” and is set to become commercially available soon. Facebook also notably owns the VR company Oculus Rift, whose founder, Palmer Luckey, now runs the U.S. military AI contractor Anduril.

    As recently reported, Facebook was shaped in its early days to be a private-sector replacement for DARPA’s controversial LifeLog program, which sought to both “humanize” AI and build profiles on domestic dissidents and terror suspects. LifeLog was also promoted by DARPA as “supporting medical research and the early detection of an emerging pandemic.”

    It appears that current trends and events show that DARPA’s decadeslong effort to merge “health security” and “national security” have now advanced further than ever before.

    This may partially be because Bill Gates, who has wielded significant influence over health policy globally in the last year, is a long-time advocate of fusing health security and national security to thwart both pandemics and “bioterrorists” before they can strike, as can be heard in his 2017 speech delivered at that year’s Munich Security Conference.

    That same year, Gates also publicly urged the U.S. military to “focus more training on preparing to fight a global pandemic or bioterror attack.”

    In the merging of “national security” and “health security,” any decision or mandate promulgated as a public health measure could be justified as necessary for “national security,” much in the same way that the mass abuses and war crimes that occurred during the post-9/11 “war on terror” were similarly justified by “national security” with little to no oversight.

    Yet, in this case, instead of only losing our civil liberties and control over our external lives, we stand to lose sovereignty over our individual bodies.

    The NIH, which would house this new ARPA-H/HARPA, has spent hundreds of millions of dollars experimenting with the use of wearables since 2015, not only for detecting disease symptoms but also for monitoring individuals’ diets and illegal drug consumption.

    Biden played a key part in that project, known as the Precision Medicine initiative, and separately highlighted the use of wearables in cancer patients as part of the Obama administration’s related Cancer Moonshot program.

    A Plan to Record, Mark and Manipulate Your Brain
    The third Obama-era health research project was the NIH’s BRAIN initiative, which was launched, among other things, to “develop tools to record, mark and manipulate precisely defined neurons in the living brain” that are determined to be linked to an “abnormal” function or a neurological disease.

    These initiatives took place at a time when Eric Lander was the cochair of Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology while still leading the Broad Institute. It is hardly a coincidence that Eric Lander is now Biden’s top science adviser, elevated to a new cabinet-level position and set to guide the course of ARPA-H/HARPA.

    Thus, Biden’s newly announced agency, if approved by Congress, would integrate those past Obama-era initiatives with Orwellian applications under one roof, but with even less oversight than before. It would also seek to expand and mainstream the uses of these technologies and potentially move toward developing policies that would mandate their use.

    If ARPA-H/HARPA is approved by Congress and ultimately established, it will be used to resurrect dangerous and long-standing agendas of the national-security state and its Silicon Valley contractors, creating a “digital dictatorship” that threatens human freedom, human society and potentially the very definition of what it means to be human.

    First the Great Reset and Now Happytalism
    by Tessa Lena
    July 23, 2021

    "This story is about happytalism. Due to the vast amount of information, this is part one of the series. “Happytalism” is a very tricky word that hasn’t gotten much attention yet — but we may start hearing about it shortly.

    It’s a branding term that sweetly refers to the same transhumanist framework of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Great Reset (where real estate ownership is concentrated, where living beings are reduced to “digital twins” managed through the blockchain, and where we “own nothing” and eat bugs).

    “Happytalism” is a piece of marketing language that lives together with “green and sustainable development,” “racial equity,” “inclusivity,” “climate justice,” “building back better,” and so on. Speaking of bugs, I can’t resist.

    Quote World Economic Forum

    Jan 7, 2019
    Forget burgers, think bugs. Read more: https://wef.ch/2CPveEG #health #society
    For context, please keep in mind that in 2019, the United Nations signed a broad and unpublicized agreement with the World Economic Forum on strategic cooperation on a number of issues, and 4IR is listed as one of the areas of said cooperation. On a tangent, I would also like to point out a detail that is easy to miss.

    Where the agreement talks about health, it mentions cooperation on antimicrobial resistance. It so happens that according to the World Economic Forum, they expect antimicrobial resistance to become a major threat that will greatly exceed the dangers of the coronavirus.

    It is also notable that the entire western health response to the coronavirus has strongly pushed for measures that reduce natural immunity, discourage the use of vitamins, and promote overuse of sanitizers, which is thought to lead to antimicrobial resistance (you can check the thread below).

    I'd like to point something out. According to WEF, we'll soon be facing the danger of antimicrobal resistance and superbugs that's worse than COVID.
    Meanwhile, policies and recommendations of the entire past year promoted things that weaken natural immunity and create superbugs.
    Before we get to happytalism proper, please take a look at this mind-boggling United Nation article and video. For starters, here’s this bit where indigenous children sing about, I am sorry, the “new world order.” This song is also a part of the official United Nations video below. (The comments on the video are disabled.)

    [While you are at it, please check out the sweet, sincere message by the well-known altruist and environmentalist, Prince Charles, who does not at all own any framework for a new economic system (at around 2:24). And if you have the heart for it, check out the WTF skit on potty training for the unwashed heathen (at 39:41).]

    Notably, the story and the video were originally posted on the subdomain of the United Nations website that has to do with the SDGs (“sustainable development goals”), a program that is ears-deep in the World Economic Forum’s agenda toward the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Great Reset).

    Okay, so the children sang a strange song about the coronavirus and the “new world order,” the latter known of course to be a funny phrase, whispered by crazy people as they go about “the elites” and adjust the tinfoil hats on their heads. I personally don’t use this phrase because you can’t get very far with it, even though ... oh never mind.

    But my good manners do not change the fact that the phrase was coined and popularized not by crazy tinfoil hat wearers but by some of the most influential people of the western world (the proverbial “elites”), such as, for example, Henry Kissinger, and that’s just in the recent era.

    A bit of a philosophical thought process: Are there elites? Are we all on the same level when it comes to being able to control national and global cashflows, wars, the media and the politicians? How insane is it to presume that those in power might have selfish ideas about the world, and what it should be, and where it should go?

    Is it insane to posit that in their heads, they might not relate to the rest of us as much as we would like, and might possess less respect for our opinions and interests than we may hope? Is it insane to speculate that powerful people might be talking to each other privately to promote their shared interests (while also competing with each other on their level)?

    Has it never happened? Never-ever? Not even an oil war? Not even a crusade or a secret treaty? Not even an American corporation profiting from the Nazi concentration camps? Not even an alphabet agency protecting Nazi researchers and secretly shipping them to the U.S. to continue unethical experiments? Not even a drug manufacturer doing experiments on disadvantaged children in New York?

    Is it insane to think that the special interests of today’s, um, elites, seemingly include converging biological life and digital artifacts (and I don’t care if this is their own insane idea or an insane idea suggested by their highly paid advisors — but the notion of it is officially official and featured on government websites in Canada and in the UK — while still undeniably insane.)

    And is it crazy to think that someone out there seems very interested in establishing a, hopefully, all-planetary system of control and management of every living thing and every mineral on Earth, a system controlled by a few hundred or thousand particularly ambitious and wealthy individuals, and managed by AI?

    Aren’t they themselves promoting this idea through the media and NGOs? Here is also very lavishly funded — and allegedly very miserable in real life — Ray Kurzweil — and his crazy singularity.

    Quote Tessa Lena a.k.a. Tessa Fights Robots ❤️

    May 27
    Prior to last year, I liked to poke fun at Ray Kurzweil and his fellow crew. In 2021, they deserve to be laughed out of the room more than ever. The CNN article below is from 2015, by the way.
    And what structures are there in place to ensure that modern western citizens are immune from being eventually — or soon — treated by the super wealthy the way the indigenous were treated by various European missionaries and their royal masters?

    What if digital colonialism is really a thing in the heads of the “elites,” just like traditional colonialism was a thing that drove the rulers of the past? On a side note, please google the 1974 Kissinger report that, among other things, brags about incentivizing Indian men to get a vasectomy).

    That’s that about tinfoil hats. Life is complex and multi-faceted but people do conspire, and they do it all the time, so the notion that they could be conspiring today is not that crazy. Also, please see the SoftBank founder talking about his 300-year plan.

    Speaking of “long-range plans made in secret,” here is a wonderful article by Steven Newcomb, titled, “On Conspiracy.” (I owe the “long-range plans made in secret” phrase to him as well.)

    Steven looks at it from an indigenous perspective. It turns out that back in the day, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Our settlements will gradually circumscribe and approach the Indians, and they will in time either incorporate with us as citizens of the United States, or remove beyond the Mississippi. The former is certainly the termination of their history most happy for themselves.”

    And now, please meet actual “happytalism,” Jayme Illien, and "Happiness for All,” an initiative that claims the participation of the United Nations and aims to install literally a “New World Order” based on “happiness.”

    Before I say anything else, I want to first say that Jayme Illien seems like a very opportunistic man with deep ties to the alphabets and a possible a broken childhood, and that his direct association with the UN in the context of that specific project is officially disputed.

    The United Nations has officially denied their relationship to his project, while at the same time promoting similar initiatives. That said, opportunistic folks play a significant role in human history, and he seems to be hustling really hard while having powerful connections. Here is an archived version of the now deleted Wikipedia article about him.

    Here is an archived version of a Business Insider story about Illien that has since been deleted. It gives a lot of insight into his line of work. It talks about him being a United Nations representative for Economists for Peace and Security, and also about this:

    “In 2011, Illien Global Public Benefit Corporation launched a multi-year campaign to move happiness to the top of the international policy agenda forever. In 2012, Illien Global approached the United Nations about creating the new global day, the International Day of Happiness, now celebrated worldwide every March 20.

    With the support and leadership of ambassadors from all over the world – including the Kingdom of Bhutan, which measures Gross National Happiness instead of GDP – Illien Global was able to gain the endorsement of the President of the General Assembly and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to bring a new UN resolution to the General Assembly that would create the new global day, the International Day of Happiness.” (source)

    When it comes to Jayme Illien, he has A LOT of websites, some are well-developed and presentable, some are completely raw and full of placeholder images and text, and some keep interestingly changing over time. In fact, in one of his interviews, Jayme Illien has changed his name as well. His Facebook has not been updated since 2018.

    If you look at illienglobal.com, it’s all digital ecosystems, smart cities, and blockchain, all the favorite things of the 4IR dreamers, wrapped in “green and sustainable” language for the busy and the gullible.

    In his own words, “For 35 years, Illien Global™ has been dedicated to working with governments, intergovernmental organizations, global financial institutions, the technology sector, global leaders, academia, civil society, and the broader private sector to advance the human condition, invest in the future, and promote Happiness for All™.” (source).

    Also in own words, “In 2011, Illien Global launched the Happiness for All™ Initiative at the United Nations, leading Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon to call for a new economic paradigm based on ‘Gross Global Happiness.’”

    (Gross Global Happiness is its own thing. It looks like in part, the people promoting it really believe that they are doing something good; however, it was also true of various missionaries of the past who created suffering in the name of their ideology.)

    Here is more on the International Day of Happiness:

    Illien’s “United Nations New World Order” website has been scrubbed. But the archived version says, “The United Nations New World Order Project is a global, high-level initiative founded in 2008 to advance a new economic paradigm, a new political order, and more broadly, a new world order for humankind, which achieves the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development by 2030, and the happiness, well-being, and freedom of all life on Earth by 2050.”

    The United Nations has denied their affiliation with this website. The webpage where they said it seems to be gone, but here is the archived version.

    “And just to note that over the weekend, I’ve been receiving a lot of questions from different journalists about a website for a something called the United Nations New World Order project. I just want to state and say this very clearly that this project and website is in no way sanctioned by the United Nations.” (from the May 27, 2020 daily briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General).

    And then, there is Luis Gallardo who also claims to be a founder of Happytalism. Gallardo’s web presence is far more polished than Illien’s. In his own words, he is the Founder & President of the World Happiness Foundation and World Happiness Fest (the original link is not available), the author of “Happytalism and The Exponentials of Happiness,” and the Director of the Gross Global Happiness program at the United Nations University for Peace.

    He is also associated with the World Happiness Academy. All the projects are very fuzzy and look like there is good money behind them. Here is a video of both of them talking about Happytalism. To make it more interesting, in this online meeting, Jayme Illien goes by “Jayme Lilienthal.”

    And finally, remember the notorious World Economic Forum’s proposition that went, “You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy”?

    Well, well, well … here is another guy who wrote a book called, “Happytalism,” and guess what, buried among various sweet words, there’s de-prioritizing income as a value, which seems to me like a very nice and elusive way to say that after all, “you’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.”

    Add to that the trend toward very lucrative impact investment programs for “mental health,” and also money arbitrarily generated by the government (because they can) and then given to private entities to “solve problems,” and we have a robust feudal economy where the majority own nothing and play the role of unhappy bodies need to be made happy through government-funded impact investment programs, implemented by private companies.

    Nice, right? (By the way, here’s from Happytalism.world in 2018, “Taking on Mental Illness Is Fiscally Sound and Morally Necessary”).

    And yes, the author of the book could be a mere opportunist who chose to write a trendy book, much like the opportunists in the Soviet Union pontificated ad nauseam about non-existent communist ideals. But … I don’t know … am I being silly not trusting these people with my happiness?

    There’s lots more to say about the act of hijacking “good” language to sell whatever one wants to sell, but the article is getting too long. So I would like to end this story with the interview with Mary Otto-Chang, in case you missed it earlier. She is wonderful.

    Preparing for War in the Atlantic, NATO Opens New Command in Virginia
    Gen. Milley said the command could fight a future battle of the Atlantic
    by Dave DeCamp Posted onJuly 16, 2021CategoriesNewsTagsNATO, Russia
    Preparing for a future battle in the Atlantic, NATO announced on Thursday that its new command in Norfolk, Virginia, is now fully operational.

    Joint Force Command-Norfolk is the third of its kind and will coordinate with similar commands in Brunssum, Netherlands, and Naples, Italy. The headquarters is the second NATO command structure in Norfolk, joining the NATO’s Allied Command Transformation.

    The new command will oversee NATO operations in the Atlantic and in the Arctic, two regions where the US is warning Russia and China are expanding their presence. At an inauguration for the new command, US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley warned of so-called “great power wars” and drew parallels between future conflicts and World War II.

    “It’s the mission of this command to fight the battle of the Atlantic in the event of armed conflict. Think about that. If you know your history, and you know World War II, you know how important that was,” Milley said. He said the “survival” of NATO and its success in a future war would depend on the success of the new command and the “success or failure of the battle of the Atlantic.”

    Milley rattled off casualty statistics of World War II, warning what a future war could bring. “That is the butcher’s bill of great power war,” he said. “That’s what this international order that’s been in existence for seven and a half decades is designed to prevent. That’s what JFC-Norfolk is all about. It’s to prevent that outcome.”

    Milley claims a new NATO command will prevent a future war, but since the end of the Cold War, the alliance has expanded and waged wars of aggression across the Middle East, North Africa, and the Balkans. NATO is constantly stoking tensions with Russia by holding exercises near its border and in sensitive areas like the Black Sea.
