The global financial elite are unleashing a police state and complete change of the banking and monetary system. This is now rapidly accelerating as THEY take advantage of the pandemic, the results of which they’re making far worse. Their goals have been expressed for years, if you’ve been paying attention.

Total control through massive surveillance. Increasingly, all of your electronic transactions, communications, movements and smart devices are being monitored. It’s not yet complete because of bandwidth limitations. This is the real reason for the 5G roll-out which is accelerating at this moment. THEY really don’t care if it maims, sterilizes or kills you. All of that is in-line with their objectives of population reduction and control, plus keeping you poor and dependent because of sickcare costs and needs.

Total control through digital money.

US Knew of a Novel Coronavirus Threat, Failed to Prepare

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

According to a Nation magazine report, Trump deceived the public by falsely claiming the emergence and spread of COVID-19 was “unforeseen,” that it “came out of nowhere.”

The Nation obtained a 2017 Pentagon draft report that refutes his Big Lie.

Saying “(t)he most likely and significant threat is a novel respiratory disease, particularly a novel influenza disease” should have alerted Trump regime policymakers to prepare for outbreaks to be ready to respond as needed when they occurred.

They slept instead, leaving the nation and its people unprepared to deal with what’s happening and worsening daily. More on this below.

There are six known coronavirus strains that can infect humans. Most people contract one or more strains in their lifetimes.

They cause mild to moderate to more serious

Trump Regime War Department Concealing Numbers of COVID-19 Infected Military Personnel

Trump Regime War Department Concealing Numbers of COVID-19 Infected Military Personnel

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

On Monday, the Pentagon admitted that over 1,000 US military personnel are infected with COVID-19 — how much over not explained.

On the same day, it ordered commanders on all US bases worldwide to stop revealing numbers of infected personnel on their installations, including ships at sea and in ports.

If the secretive Pentagon admitted to a thousand COVID-19 cases, the number is likely much higher, growing exponentially for military personnel living and operating in close quarters.

At the height of Spanish Flu infections in 1918 during WW I’s final year, up to 40% of US army and navy personnel were ill from influenza and pneumonia — causing more deaths than trench warfare and other combat.

Thousands of troops aboard transport ships to and from France died.

Sneak Attack by Iran on US Forces Coming?

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

At a time when responsible leadership is vitally needed to deal with a national health and economic crisis, the US is led by an incompetent, self-serving, geopolitical know-nothing demagogue who’s indifferent toward public health, safety and welfare.

The US ship of state is rudderless, no courageous captain in charge to steer it safely through troubled waters.

Whatever the outcome of today’s unprecedented crisis in modern times, it’s highly likely that millions of ordinary Americans will be grievously hurt, many irreparably, because of an uncaring ship of state’s captain and crew — serving monied interests exclusively at the expense of the public welfare at a time when large-scale federal help is most needed no matter the cost.

Trump is the latest in a long line of US bellicose presidents — waging wars of aggression in

USA: An Unparalleled Killer Virus State Threatening Humanity

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

No nation in world history did more harm to more people over a longer duration than the US.

None more gravely threatens humanity’s survival today because of its rage to control planet earth, its resources and populations.

Is COVID-19 a US geopolitical/socio-economic experiment gone awry, or is it working as planned?

According to Dr. F. Perry Wilson:

“Think of COVID-19 as a fire burning in a forest. All of us are trees. The R0 (infection spread rate) is the wind speed. The higher it is, the faster the fire tears through the forest.”

If an infectious disease has an R0 of 2, it means an infected person will transmit it to two others on average.

To keep spreading, an infectious disease needs fuel. “We’re the fuel,” Wilson explained.

Shelter in place, social distancing, and loc

Trump Regime Scheme to Transition from Democracy to Tyranny in Venezuela

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

When WW II ended, fascist tyranny wasn’t defeated.

It was transplanted from Berlin, Tokyo, and Rome to the US — under new management.

Today it’s infinitely more menacing to world peace, stability, equity, justice, and the rule of law because of super-weapons able to destroy planet earth and all its life forms in a matter of days if unleashed full-force.

All nations not bending to Washington’s will at the expense of their sovereign rights are on its target list for regime change — by hot wars, economic wars, financial wars, and other means.

Venezuela is a prime US target because of its world’s large oil reserves, a prize both right wings of its war party covet.

It’s also because of Bolivarian model democracy, an equitable system the US tolerates nowhere, especially not at

Biden Opposes COVID-19 Aid to Iran

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Biden and Trump and two sides of the same coin under different labels of the US war party — aka its anti-democratic money or property party.

Biden’s senior foreign policy adviser Thomas Wright “sees (US) war and conflict with Beijing and Moscow as close to inevitable,” Gareth Icke reported — a potential death wish if the US attacks either country able to hit back against aggressors as hard as they’re struck.

US Cold War 2.0 has been ongoing against both countries for years. If turns hot, planet earth and all its life forms would be threatened like never before.

Like the vast majority of others in Washington, Biden one-sidedly supports Israel no matter how egregious its high crimes of war and against humanity, and why not.

As US senator and vice president, he fully supported all US wars of aggression against nations t

The Illegitimacy Of Banking System Debt and How To Screw The Banksters Along With Their Owners

If someone creates “money” out of thin air, then lends it to you under the pretense that it is real, what do you owe them? They misrepresented the money as having been entirely earned by someone and owed back to them. Meanwhile, in fact, only 10% of that money was actually earned and owed. Then they went on to charge a rate of interest appropriate to their lie. They knew the actual rate of interest they would receive was about 10-times the going rate from an honest person.

That is the criminal enterprise the banking system has been perpetrating. For example, those paying 15% interest on a credit card have been actually paying about 150% interest on the real money which the bank received from somebody who earned it, while they paid about 1.5% or less to that person.

Give this some thought. The money you were loaned was 90% created out of thin air. Then you’ve been charged an enormous rate of interest on the 10% of deposited mone

Lysander Spooner on the National Debt

Feature Article by Mike Swatek

Once again, last autumn we were inundated with dire warnings about what would befall the American people and the world economy if Congress did not raise the debt ceiling — or, as I call it, the debt sky, because apparently the sky’s the limit.

As he has each time this issue has come up, Barack Obama emphasized that increasing the debt would permit the government only to pay expenses already incurred and would not finance new spending. To which I again reply, rhetorically, Why is Congress allowed to spend money that it knows it won’t possess unless the debt limit is raised? It’s as though you kept charging purchases on a credit card, assuming that every time you maxed it out, the bank would automatically raise the limit.

Not only does that violate good sense, it also rigs the debate over the debt limit by threatening so-called default as the price of voting no. (In fact, th
