    The Border Closures Story IS Continuing

    Canada, US border closure extended through Jan. 2021
    Canadian Prime Minister says closure will last until COVID under control

    not sure WHY exactly, but Click on DETROIT just reported:

    Quick facts about the US-Canada border restrictions:

    > Canadian citizens, permanent residents and Registered Indians under the Indian Act continue to enter Canada by right, and are subject to COVID-19 entry screening measures.

    > The CBSA has temporarily suspended or reduced service at certain small vessel reporting sites, small airports of entry, ferry terminals and to the Remote Area Border Crossing program. Travelers should review the list of CBSA locations that remain open during this temporary service suspension.

    > All persons entering Canada, unless exempted – no matter their country of origin or mode of entry - MUST isolate themselves for 14 days if they have symptoms of or confirmed COVID-19 or quarantine themselves for 14 days if they do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Foreign nationals who are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted to enter Canada, regardless of their reason for travel.
    Travelers should consult the respective provincial/territorial websites to ensure that they are aware of the provincial/territorial entry, quarantine and public health requirements and can abide by those requirements.

    > As of March 31, 2020, anyone arriving in Canada in any mode (air, land, marine or rail) must provide their contact information to a border services officer when seeking entry. This information is collected on behalf of Public Health Agency of Canada to support the compliance to, and enforcement of, the 14 day quarantine or isolation requirement outlined in the Order in Council. Travelers are encouraged to download the mobile ArriveCAN App prior to arrival to reduce wait times and limit contact at the border. The App is available on the Apple App and Google Play stores.

    > For the latest on cross-border programs and services, travelers can call the CBSA’s Border Information Service at 1-800-461-9999.

    ok ... here is one that will directly impact our community and those like us ..

    VISITING "BAD WEBSITES" WILL LOWER YOUR CREDIT SCORE, SAYS IMF

    Your Search History Will Determine Your Financial Credit Score In Future, Says IMF
    In a new blog post for the International Monetary Fund, four researchers presented their findings from a working paper (read below) that examines the current relationship between finance and tech as well as its potential future.

    The researchers propose using the data from your browsing, search, and purchase history to create a mechanism for determining the credit rating of an individual or business.

    The plan is outlined in a blog written by Arnoud Boot, Peter Hoffmann, Luc Laeven and Lev Ratnovski, pitching the Orwellian notion as a breakthrough in financial technology (Fintech).

    Fintech resolves the dilemma by tapping various nonfinancial data: the type of browser and hardware used to access the internet, the history of online searches and purchases. Recent research documents that, once powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, these alternative data sources are often superior than traditional credit assessment methods, and can advance financial inclusion.

    Overall, while much of the technological progress in finance is evolutionary, its pace is accelerating fast. Fintech’s potential to reach out to over a billion unbanked people around the world, and the changes in the financial system structure that this can induce, can be revolutionary.

    Governments should follow and carefully support the technological transition in finance. It is important to adjust policies accordingly and stay ahead of the curve.

    Gizmodo commented on the proposal and its mortifying consequences if it were actually implemented on a grand scale.

    The researchers acknowledge that there will be privacy and policy concerns related to incorporating this kind of soft-data into credit analysis. And they do little to explain how this might work in practice. The paper isn’t long, and it’s worth a read just to wrap your mind around some of the notions of fintech’s future and why everyone seems to want in on the payments game.

    As it is, getting the really fine soft-data points would probably require companies like Facebook and Apple to loosen up their standards on linking unencrypted information with individual accounts. How they might share information with other institutions would be its own can of worms.

    However, the policy seems to be designed to bring an end to alternate news media with grave consequences for those engaged with the organisation.

    Thanks Chris...this gives possibly the clearest picture I've heard on how events might unfold over the next few days & weeks, not just in the US but globally too.

    If what Lin Wood says does come to pass then the changes for us all will be profound....including not least - it sounds like - the start of a push-back against the murderous scam that is the covid pandemic. This can, I hope, only be good news for us all...

    This is particularly chilling. It is a new form of control, less direct, but shaping behavior to conform to a totalitarian mind set.

    FLASH MOB in Oregon State Capital.

    Written by Steve Cannon for USSA News.

    Congress and the courts have all but admitted that they do not want to get involved in the election results because they’re scared of Antifa and any repercussions.

    Currently, Republican Rep. Mo Brooks, Tommy Tuberville, and Matt Gaetz, all plan to block the certification of the election results come January 6th.

    These are the only three men we have on our side, not including Trump himself.

    The people have had enough and are finally taking matters into their own hands.

    We the people own this country, not the do-nothing politicians. Watch the videos below for proof of ownership:

    After months of left-wing violence against police officers, Conservatives are demanding police stand with them saying,

    “…police better get in line and pick a side. We supported you heavy, now it is time to stand with us”

    The ‘Great’ Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn


    at this very moment:

    Skywatchers are in for an end-of-year treat. What has become known popularly as the “Christmas Star” is an especially vibrant planetary conjunction easily visible in the evening sky over the next two weeks as the bright planets Jupiter and Saturn come together, culminating on the night of Dec. 21.

    In 1610, Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei pointed his telescope to the night sky, discovering the four moons of Jupiter – Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. In that same year, Galileo also discovered a strange oval surrounding Saturn, which later observations determined to be its rings. These discoveries changed how people understood the far reaches of our solar system.

    Thirteen years later, in 1623, the solar system’s two giant planets, Jupiter and Saturn, traveled together across the sky. Jupiter caught up to and passed Saturn, in an astronomical event known as a “Great Conjunction.”

    “You can imagine the solar system to be a racetrack, with each of the planets as a runner in their own lane and the Earth toward the center of the stadium,” said Henry Throop, astronomer in the Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “From our vantage point, we’ll be able to be to see Jupiter on the inside lane, approaching Saturn all month and finally overtaking it on December 21.”

    The planets regularly appear to pass each other in the solar system, with the positions of Jupiter and Saturn being aligned in the sky about once every 20 years.

    What makes this year’s spectacle so rare, then? It’s been nearly 400 years since the planets passed this close to each other in the sky, and nearly 800 years since the alignment of Saturn and Jupiter occurred at night, as it will for 2020, allowing nearly everyone around the world to witness this “great conjunction.”

    The closest alignment will appear just a tenth of a degree apart and last for a few days. On the 21st, they will appear so close that a pinkie finger at arm’s length will easily cover both planets in the sky. The planets will be easy to see with the unaided eye by looking toward the southwest just after sunset."

    many believe that this will herald the end of a 200 yr cycle, the death of the old, the completion of an era. this is what is in the heart and mind of at least 75 million i know of ... the thing to note is that two things cannot occupy the SAME space

    in order for the new to enter, first we must release the old, what is presently there. sometimes this feels a bit unstable, the old ways gave us some degree of comfort, we were "used" to them, however, we have become painfully aware that those we "entrusted" to handle affairs, were undeserving of the trust we placed upon them. to continue? THAT is unstable ...

    the truth is that relying on others to "handle" affairs that impact us directly? ... was NEVER a good idea ... stability will come as WE reach for a more direct hold of the wheel that steers OUR affairs ... anything else leaves someone else "in charge" of us, and if THAT is the CHOICE we make? we cannot complain about its consequences ...

    may the empowerment that is seeking to emerge and connect with us ALL be welcomed and granted access by ALL



    this would be a great moment to stop and reflect and select at least one pattern, one way of being, one theme that has had a negative impact on one's life ... and make the choice RIGHT now, to release it.

    a simple intention empowered by one's will is sufficient, and maybe that's the one that's needed ... release of powerlessness and return of one's will ... a return of the power that is RIGHTFULLY ~ OURS

    VISITING "BAD WEBSITES" WILL LOWER YOUR CREDIT SCORE, SAYS IMF

    Your Search History Will Determine Your Financial Credit Score In Future, Says IMF
    In a new blog post for the International Monetary Fund, four researchers presented their findings from a working paper (read below) that examines the current relationship between finance and tech as well as its potential future.

    The researchers propose using the data from your browsing, search, and purchase history to create a mechanism for determining the credit rating of an individual or business.

    The plan is outlined in a blog written by Arnoud Boot, Peter Hoffmann, Luc Laeven and Lev Ratnovski, pitching the Orwellian notion as a breakthrough in financial technology (Fintech).

    Fintech resolves the dilemma by tapping various nonfinancial data: the type of browser and hardware used to access the internet, the history of online searches and purchases. Recent research documents that, once powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, these alternative data sources are often superior than traditional credit assessment methods, and can advance financial inclusion.

    Overall, while much of the technological progress in finance is evolutionary, its pace is accelerating fast. Fintech’s potential to reach out to over a billion unbanked people around the world, and the changes in the financial system structure that this can induce, can be revolutionary.

    Governments should follow and carefully support the technological transition in finance. It is important to adjust policies accordingly and stay ahead of the curve.

    Gizmodo commented on the proposal and its mortifying consequences if it were actually implemented on a grand scale.

    The researchers acknowledge that there will be privacy and policy concerns related to incorporating this kind of soft-data into credit analysis. And they do little to explain how this might work in practice. The paper isn’t long, and it’s worth a read just to wrap your mind around some of the notions of fintech’s future and why everyone seems to want in on the payments game.

    As it is, getting the really fine soft-data points would probably require companies like Facebook and Apple to loosen up their standards on linking unencrypted information with individual accounts. How they might share information with other institutions would be its own can of worms.

    However, the policy seems to be designed to bring an end to alternate news media with grave consequences for those engaged with the organisation.

    there can be no doubt, that as in 2016 Hillary was the expected victor? Biden is her successor.
    and China the puppeteer. the proposal above is directly sourced from China's Social Credit

    this is what it looks like:

    "People can be rewarded or punished according to their scores.

    Like private credit scores, a person's social score can move up and down depending on their behavior. The exact methodology is a secret — but examples of infractions include bad driving, smoking in non-smoking zones, buying too many video games and posting fake news online.

    1. Banning you from flying or getting the train.

    China has already started punishing people by restricting their travel.

    Nine million people with low scores have been blocked from buying tickets for domestic flights, Channel News Asia reported in March, citing official statistics.

    They can also clamp down on luxury options — three million people are barred from getting business-class train tickets.

    The eventual system will punish bad passengers specifically. Potential misdeeds include trying to ride with no ticket, loitering in front of boarding gates, or smoking in no-smoking areas.

    2. Throttling your internet speeds.

    According to Foreign Policy, credit systems monitor whether people pay bills on time, much like financial credit trackers — but also ascribe a moral dimension.

    Other mooted punishable offences include spending too long playing video games, wasting money on frivolous purchases and posting on social media.

    Spreading fake news, specifically about terrorist attacks or airport security, will also be punishable offences.

    3. Banning you — or your kids — from the best schools.

    17 people who refused to carry out military service last year were barred from enrolling in higher education, applying for high school, or continuing their studies, Beijing News reported.

    In July, a Chinese university denied an incoming student his spot because the student's father had a bad social credit score.

    4. Stopping you getting the best jobs.

    "Trust-breaking" individuals would also be banned from doing management jobs in state-owned firms and big banks.

    Some crimes, like fraud and embezzlement, would also have a big effect on social credit, Botsman reported.

    5. Keeping you out of the best hotels.

    People who refused military service were also banned from some holidays and hotels — showing that vacation plans are fair game too.

    The regime rewards people here as well as punishes them.

    People with good scores can speed up travel applications to places like Europe, Botsman said.

    An unidentified woman in Beijing also told the BBC in 2015 that she was able to book a hotel without having to pay a cash deposit because she had a good score.

    6. Getting your dog taken away.
    (i'd honestly become homicidal)

    The eastern Chinese city of Jinan started enforcing a social credit system for dog owners in 2017, whereby pet owners get points deducted if the dog is walked without a leash or causes public disturbances.

    Those who lost all their points had their dogs confiscated and had to take a test on regulations required for pet ownership.

    7. Being publicly named as a bad citizen.

    Naming and shaming is another tactic available. A a 2016 government notice encourages companies to consult the blacklist before hiring people or giving them contracts.

    However, people will be notified by the courts before they are added to the list, and are allowed to appeal against the decision within ten days of receiving the notification.

    Li Xiaolin, a lawyer who was placed on the list in 2015, found himself unable to purchase plane tickets home while on a work trip, Human Rights Watch reported. He also couldn't apply for credit cards.

    There is also a list for good citizens

    — that will reportedly get you more matches on dating websites.

    The BBC said that Baihe, China's biggest dating site, is boosting the profiles of good citizens.

    They can also get discounts on energy bills, rent things without deposits, and get better interest rates at banks.

    so we are to be "watched" and "controlled" ~ rewarded or punished. like when we were kids, except that was our parents and they loved us. this is more like property

    YOUR body
    THEIR SAY


    the practice was getting humans at least as obedient as our pets

    like my puppy

    i keep threatening to muzzle (mask) her if she doesn't stop eating things when i walk her

    i taught her "STAY"

    and i have taken her body and vaccinated it

    I am, after all, her master.

    the thing is ~ humans aren't pets

    though i sure wish i could find the trainers that have trained all the humans in my city,
    they did an excellent job ... too good maybe..

    Under the proposed Stimulus Legislation, Americans are to get a $600 Stimulus Check. If passed, here is where the rest of our money will go

    ** UPDATE **

    Rep. Matt Gaetz just announced:

    "Democrats quietly acknowledged the outlandish provisions in their omnibus legislation tonight by splitting their original legislation into two separate votes.

    I voted “yes” on the half of the bill which funds our military and provides a pay raise for the brave men and women who serve America.

    I voted “no” on the second half of the spending bill, which provides windfalls to corporate special interests, while simultaneously shortchanging American citizens.

    While the Defense/Homeland Security/CJS/FSGG bill is not perfect, it provides crucial support for our servicemembers, and it gives America’s armed forces the tools they need to succeed, both now and in the future.

    It also did not place arbitrary and unfair limits on the President’s authority to withdraw troops — and to draw down endless, unconstitutional wars.

    The other half of the Democrats’ bill, however, denies a simple truth — no amount of government-sponsored generational theft will do our people better than an open economy.

    It continues to subsidize the heartless, reactionary lockdown ideology of Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer’s political allies

    America’s struggling workers should be prioritized over gender-specific programs in Pakistan or anti-narcotics programs in Burma, or money for Ukraine (all of which are funded in this bill)

    It doubles down on many failed Democrat policies, giving special interests billions of dollars in perks, while giving our fellow Americans a paltry payment of only $600.

    America deserves better than this swamp sludge"

    Vatican Source Says Pope Francis To Step Down by Christmas


    A source close to the Vatican has reported that Pope Francis will be stepping down from the Papacy before the end of the year. There is “no doubt” the Pontiff “will resign in 2020”, the source confirmed.

    Pope Francis became head of the Catholic Church following the unexpected resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in 2013 and has been unpopular among U.S. Catholics for his radical stances on same-sex marriage, illegal immigration, and global warming as well as his support for Black Lives Matter.

    The Daily Express reports:

    The 83-year-old became head of the Catholic Church following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI – a controversial move and the first of its kind in more than 500 years. However, a source close to Pope Francis claimed he would only serve for seven years, stating he would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor. Austen Ivereigh is the former Director for Public Affairs of the previous Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and continues to work closely with the Vatican.

    He said: “I don’t think there’s ever been any doubt that he will resign in 2020.

    “He made clear from the beginning that he regarded Pope Benedict’s (XVI) act as a prophetic act of great modesty and he would have absolutely no problem in doing the same.

    “What was interesting was he said to Mexican television in 2014 that he believed that he would have a short papacy of about five years.

    “What I’m hearing now from people close to him is that he’s going to need seven years to achieve his five-year plan and that, of course, would mean staying on until 2020.”

    If Mr Ivereigh is correct, it suggests Francis could resign after Christmas so as to avoid letting his papacy run into 2021.

    Speaking in a lengthy television interview with the Mexican programme ‘Noticieros Televisa,’ the Pontiff responded to a question from journalist Valentina Alazraki about the length of his papacy.

    He said: “I have the feeling that my pontificate will be brief.

    ”Four or five years. I do not know, or two, three. Well, two have already passed.

    “It’s like a little vague feeling, but I have the feeling that the Lord puts me [here] for a brief thing and not more.”

    there were rumors that he's been gone for a while fuled by an appearance he made last April that appeared to be a hologram

    were i tasked to form a conclusion? it would be that the odds of President Trump remaining in power are pretty darned good in MY estimation. Nothing about the President's choices since the election are indicative of a President whose job is terminating, but of one looking towards the future, and "cleaning house". Even the recent development of Barr's departure is a "nod" in that direction. This man has a long history and ties to Biden which span decades ... he would have most certainly remained "for old time's sake" at least ...

    Because he doesn’t want to, or his protectors don’t want him to, get off his arse. Perhaps he’s not able to get off his arse. Perhaps they want him in two or more places at the same time. I don’t know. Just thinking out loud.

    don't know for sure .. the word at the time was that the reason that would be "needed" is because he was no longer available to actually make the appearance. and no one is surprised in the least that his absence is to be permanent ...

    holograms, are not just possible, they are fact

    this is who Gates chose as his spokesperson to showcase right before our eyes, knowing full well that MANY of us know exactly who this is and EXACTLY the type of evil she represents.

    there is much that we do NOT know, and honestly, i'm grateful to be spared an understanding of soooome things ... you know?


    they say "ignorance is bliss" in this case? i sure would agree ... i have zero desire to understand the mind of Marina Abramovic

    for those unfamiliar with the entity that made "spirit cooking" reprehensibly famous, article here:
    https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2020/...ina-abramovic/

    i will say this ... when i saw this video at the time it was released? i knew the days of freedom were now in outright jeopardy, evil (depraved minds existed) but they had always taken care to lurk hidden in the shadows

    to come out in public display without apology or disguise showed a reckless disregard for what we might've opined ... and that "reckless disregard" HAD to HAVE a reason ...

    these are the nuances that escape most we know and love, that alert those watchful to the nearness of the "changes in the tide" and the proximity of their arrival

    here is one way a hologram was used in a different manner by Kanye for his wife Kim:


    before we run off the corridors of our minds with "opinions" it would be good to remember we spoke of this

    neither Kim
    nor Ye

    are in any way obliged to meet with
    nor TRY to meet with anyone else's approval

    as much as the ENTIRE planet would like to MAKE them

    respect for ourselves, begins as we extend the same to others
    because if we cannot give it?
    we cannot request it either, right?

    Vatican Source Says Pope Francis To Step Down by Christmas


    A source close to the Vatican has reported that Pope Francis will be stepping down from the Papacy before the end of the year. There is “no doubt” the Pontiff “will resign in 2020”, the source confirmed.
    More confirmation that a clean-up operation is ongoing and coordinated. Refer my short note elsewhere about French president Macron going in quarantine.
    i will look for it Philippe ... and i agree completely ... Doug was asking for motives earlier, WHY they do the things they do? and its because it is almost a necessity to acquire some sort of "skill" at deciphering the things they do and tell us

    i, too, for quite a long time now, have surmised that "COVID" has provided the "perfect cover" to hide, or explain an absence (detainment OR escape) etc.

    they just say "COVID" and poooof disappear and no one blinks and no one questions ...

    we should start a list of these people ... i'd bet it would get quite interesting ...
    betrayal of Self, is betrayal nonetheless and betrayal of the HIGHEST kind ...

    HELL YEA!

    Trump Kicks COVID Bill Back To Congress; Demands $2,000 Stimulus, Shreds Lawmakers Over Mountain Of Pork

    He also basically said "*** 600, 2000 for all" and 10 mil for "gender studies" in Pakistan?? WTF was this trash bill

    My man!
    Looks like the Democrats are going to cave on his demand to up the amount to $2000 per person.

    BREITBART reports:

    "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday endorsed President Donald Trump’s demand to increase coronavirus relief checks for the American people.

    "Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent,” Pelosi wrote on Twitter. “Let’s do it!”

    “Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks. At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!
    https://t.co/Th4sztrpLV

    — Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) December 23, 2020

    The president demanded in a video posted to Twitter Tuesday night that Congress increase the payments from $600 to $2,000.

    The massive 5,593-page bill was passed by both the House and the Senate on Monday night but immediately drew criticism for sending billions of dollars of aid to foreign countries but only $600 relief checks to Americans.

    The president did not say he would veto the bill but demanded that Congress amend it before sending it to his desk."

    article:
    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...avirus-checks/

    i'm just a bit concerned because it never sits well with me when these two sides agree on anything ...

    it is a 5,593-page bill ... and just like i used to say of the NDAA they like to "stick things in there"

    and i'm not speaking of the OBVIOUS, the distractions so that everyone's focus is directed there ... such as the $10m for Pakistan ‘gender programs’?

    something outrageous like that is ALWAYS a clue that something ELSE is going on that needs a suitable distraction

    "Look over THERE"

    i hope, our President is on to THIS game and searching ....

    because rumor has it that one thing NOT being discussed is a clause in there that will basically nullify the insurrection act.

    Pelosi JUMPING to agree without a ferocious fight? who would not be immediately suspicious?

    sure hope this "gift" doesn't come at a price too costly in the long run ...:

    let's keep our fingers crossed and maybe a nod up above that things turn out for the best this time
