NWO Covid Year 5 Part 3 - Fauci’s Inquisition II

The Great FOIA Dodge

By Maryanne Demasi
Brownstone Institute
May 28, 2024

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are meant to promote government transparency and accountability and give the public access to information about the operations and decisions of federal agencies.

But serious concerns have been raised about the ascertainment of public records and the lack of transparency of federal agencies.

In recent congressional hearings, it was REVEALED that top US public health officials created ‘secret’ back channels for communications on federal business in order to avoid prying eyes.

David Morens, a former top advisor to Anthony Fauci, allegedly destroyed public documents and boasted to colleagues that he would communicate with Fauci on personal Gmail accounts to circumvent FOIA requests.

“I can either send stuff to Tony [Fauci] on his private Gmail, or hand it to him,” wrote Morens in emails presented by the House Select Subcommittee.

“[Fauci] is too smart to let colleagues send him stuff that could cause trouble,” added Morens, suggesting that Fauci himself was involved in dodging FOIAs.

In the subpoenaed emails, Morens wrote that someone in the FOIA office of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) gave him instructions on how to destroy public records, boasting that he could make emails vanish without a trace.

Morens also wrote that he would delete emails that could present as “SMOKING GUNS” to avoid implicating his long-time friend Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, in the Covid-19 pandemic.

When Morens was questioned by the Subcommittee and asked why he was trying to hide his emails and destroy federal records, he stumbled and fumbled, he acted confused, and claimed he had little recollection of the emails.

He also claimed he had no understanding of what a federal record was, despite being a federal employee for over two decades.

“I truly dont think I have ever seen a federal record in 26 years of being at NIH,” Morens told the committee.

Many are now wondering whether there will be accountability.

The US Department of Health and Human Services has already SUSPENDED funding to EcoHealth Alliance, which has been linked to gain-of-function research in Wuhan, and COMMENCED formal debarment proceedings against Daszak.

“EcoHealth Alliance President Dr. Peter Daszak’s personal debarment will ensure he never again receives a single cent from U.S. taxpayers nor has the opportunity to start a new, untrustworthy organization,” Committee Chair Brad Wenstrup, said in a statement.

Morens however, is officially still an employee of the NIH, although he has been placed on administrative leave.

Senator Rand Paul of the US Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has written to the Department of Justice urging it to open an investigation into the alleged improper concealment and intentional destruction of records by Morens, stating;

Under 18 U.S.C. §2071, an individual who “willfully and unlawfully” conceals, removes or destroys a federal record can be fined and imprisoned for up to three years. The statute also applies to attempts to conceal, remove, or destroy a federal record.

Public health agencies have forgotten they work for the public. The deliberate obfuscation and lengthy delays in processing FOIA requests make it difficult to uncover important stories and hold these agencies to account.

I submitted a FOIA request to the US drug regulator - the FDA - which has been sitting idle for almost two years now. And when I enquired about its progress, the FDA said it was still in ‘triage.’

Hardly unsurprising, given the WANTED 75 YEARS to release THE DATA related to Pfizer’s pivotal Covid-19 mRNA trial. If it weren’t for the relentless efforts of Aaron Siri of Siri & Glimstad, these documents would still be buried in the FDAs basement.

Delays are not the only way agencies can obfuscate information. Epoch Times journalist Zachary Stieber sent a FOIA request to the US CDC which resulted in 148 pages of communications, that were entirely redacted.

Similarly, I recently received documents from a FOIA request submitted to the Australian drug regulator Җ the TGA seeking data on RNA stability testing carried out on specific batches of mRNA vaccines.

After months of delays, I finally received multiple documents which had all of the test results redacted. Below is an example of one documentcontaining 10 pages.

According to the TGA, the results contained information “of a commercial value to Pfizer, the value of which would be diminished or destroyed if released.”

Never mind that the results of this testing are of value to the public, the TGA’s primary concern is protecting the interests of Pfizer.

And, despite being unable to decipher anything meaningful from the redacted documents, I was still charged $287 for the TGA’s time to deal with my request.

None of this bodes well for establishing trust in public health agencies, and I suspect this is just the tip of the iceberg.

HEARING ADVISORY: Dr. Anthony Fauci to Testify on June 3

Press Release
House Oversight Committee
May 28, 2024

Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) will hold a hearing titled “A Hearing with Dr. Anthony Fauci” on Monday, June 3, 2024. This hearing is the first time Dr. Fauci will testify publicly since retiring from public service. Earlier this year, Dr. Fauci appeared in front of the Select Subcommittee for a closed-door, two-day, 14-hour transcribed interview. Read more about Dr. Fauci’s transcribed interview HERE and HERE. The transcript from this interview will be released prior to the public hearing.

Chairman Wenstrup issued the statement below following the public announcement of Dr. Fauci’s hearing date:

“Retirement from public service does not excuse Dr. Fauci from accountability to the American people. On June 3, Americans will have an opportunity to hear directly from Dr. Fauci about his role in overseeing our nation’s pandemic response, shaping pandemic-era polices, and promoting singular, questionable narratives about the origins of COVID-19. During Dr. Fauci’s closed-door interview in January, he testified to serious systemic failures in our public health system that deserve further investigation, including his testimony that the ‘6 feet apart’ social distancing guidance - which was used to shut down small businesses and schools across America - ‘sort of just appeared.’ This raises significant concerns about public health officials and the validity of their policy recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We also learned that Dr. Fauci believes the lab leak hypothesis he publicly downplayed should not be dismissed as a conspiracy theory. As the face of America’s public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these statements raise serious questions that warrant public scrutiny. We look forward to Dr. Fauci’s forthcoming and honest testimony and appreciate his willingness to voluntarily appear before the Select Subcommittee for a public hearing,” said Chairman Wenstrup.

Bad Moon Rising Part 101 - China and Russia 75 Years Later

The “Wolfowitz Doctrine” became the American foreign policy during the Bush administration; fast forward to today in 2020, it continues to be the template for the U.S Foreign Policy and has become even more brash under the Trump Administration.  Our [U.S.] first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power. These regions include Western Europe, East Asia, the territory of the former Soviet Union, and Southwest Asia.

Joint statement between the People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation on deepening the comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for a new era on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries

May 16, 2024

At the invitation of President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China, President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation conducted a state visit to the Peoples Republic of China from May 16 to 17, 2024. The two heads of state held formal talks in Beijing and jointly attended the opening ceremony of the China-Russia Year of Culture 2024-2025 and a special concert commemorating the 75th anniversary of the establishment of China-Russia diplomatic relations. Premier Li Qiang of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China also met with President Putin of Russia.

President Putin of Russia also traveled to Harbin to attend the opening ceremony of the 8th China-Russia Expo.

The People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation (hereinafter referred to as “both sides") declare as follows:

1

In 2024, China and Russia will grandly celebrate the 75th anniversary of their diplomatic relations. Over the past 75 years, China-Russia relations have experienced an extraordinary development journey. The Soviet Union was the first country in the world to recognize and establish diplomatic relations with the Peoples Republic of China. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the PeopleҒs Republic of China recognized the Russian Federation as the legitimate successor state of the Soviet Union and reiterated its willingness to develop China-Russia relations on the basis of equality, mutual respect, and mutually beneficial cooperation. The Treaty of Good-Neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation between the Peoples Republic of China and the Russian Federation, signed on July 16, 2001, laid a solid foundation for continuously and comprehensively strengthening China-Russia relations. The status of bilateral relations has been continuously upgraded, reaching the highest level in history as a comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for the new era. Through the unremitting efforts of both sides, China-Russia relations, guided by the national interests of both countries and adhering to the spirit of permanent good-neighborliness and friendship, have maintained healthy and stable development.

Both sides pointed out that current China-Russia relations transcend the military-political alliance model of the Cold War era, characterized by non-alignment, non-confrontation, and non-targeting of third countries. Facing a turbulent and changing world order, China-Russia relations have withstood the test of international vicissitudes, demonstrating stability and resilience, and are now at their best level in history. Both sides emphasized that developing a comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for the new era between China and Russia serves the fundamental interests of both countries and their peoples. This partnership is not a temporary measure, is not influenced by external factors, and has strong intrinsic motivation and independent value. Both sides firmly defend their legitimate rights and interests, oppose any attempts to obstruct the normal development of China-Russia relations, interfere in the internal affairs of both countries, or restrict the economic, technological, and international space of the two countries.

Both sides reaffirmed that China and Russia always regard each other as priority partners, consistently uphold mutual respect, treat each other as equals, and pursue mutually beneficial cooperation. They always adhere to the UNITED NATIONS CHARTER, international law, and the basic principles of international relations, making their relationship a model of major countries and neighboring states in today’s world. Both sides are willing to further deepen comprehensive strategic coordination, firmly support each other on issues concerning their core interests such as sovereignty, territorial integrity, security, and development, effectively leverage their respective advantages, focus on safeguarding their national security and stability, and promote development and revitalization. Both sides will follow the principles set out in the TREATY OF GOOD-NEIGHBORLINESS AND FRIENDLY COOPERATION signed on July 16, 2001, as well as other bilateral documents and statements, to conduct high-quality, high-level mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields.

China welcomed the successful presidential election held in the Russian Federation in March 2024, recognizing that THE ELECTION was well-organized, open, objective, and inclusive. The results fully demonstrate the broad support for the national policies pursued by the Russian government, and the development of friendly relations with the Peoples Republic of China is an important part of Russia’s foreign policy.

China strongly condemned all organizers, perpetrators, and planners of the inhumane TERRORIST ATTACK IN MOSCOW OBLAST on March 22, 2024, considering attacks on civilians completely unacceptable, and supports Russia’s resolute efforts to combat terrorism and extremism, maintaining national peace and stability.

Russia reaffirmed its adherence to the One China principle, recognizing Taiwan as an inalienable part of the People’s Republic of China, opposing any form of “Taiwan independence,” and firmly supporting China’s efforts to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity and achieve national reunification. China supports Russia in maintaining its national security and stability, development and prosperity, sovereignty, and territorial integrity, opposing external forcesҒ interference in Russias internal affairs.

Both sides pointed out that the accelerating evolution of the world’s major changes and the rising status and strength of emerging powers in the “GLOBAL SOUTH” are rapidly becoming apparent. These objective factors accelerate the redistribution of development potential, resources, and opportunities, favoring emerging markets and developing countries, and promoting the democratization of international relations and international fairness and justice. In contrast, countries adhering to hegemonism and power politics are going against this trend, attempting to replace and subvert the recognized international order based on international law with a “rules-based order.” Both sides emphasized that China’s concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind and a series of global initiatives have significant positive implications.

As independent forces in the process of building a multipolar world, China and Russia will fully tap the potential of their bilateral relations, promoting the realization of an equitable and orderly multipolar world and the democratization of international relations, and unite to build a just and reasonable multipolar world.

Both sides believe that all countries have the right to independently choose their development models and political, economic, and social systems based on their national conditions and people’s will, opposing interference in the internal affairs of sovereign countries, unilateral sanctions without international law basis or UN Security Council authorization, and “long-arm jurisdiction.” Both sides pointed out that neocolonialism and hegemonism completely contradict the current trend of the times, calling for equal dialogue, development of partnership relations, and promotion of civilizational exchanges and mutual learning.

Both sides will continue to firmly defend the outcomes of World War II and the post-war world order enshrined in the UN Charter, opposing any denial, distortion, or tampering with the history of World War II. Both sides pointed out the necessity of proper historical education, protecting world anti-fascist memorial facilities from desecration or destruction, and strongly condemning the glorification or attempts to revive Nazism and militarism. Both sides plan to grandly celebrate the 80th anniversary of the victories in the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the Soviet Union’s Great Patriotic War in 2025, jointly promoting a correct view of World War II history.

2

Both sides will take the lead through head-of-state diplomacy to promote the all-round development of the China-Russia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Coordination for the New Era. Both sides will fully implement the important consensus reached by the two heads of state, continue to maintain close high-level exchanges, ensure the smooth operation of government, local, and civil exchange mechanisms, and actively explore the creation of new channels for cooperation.

Both sides will continue to engage in exchanges between leaders of their legislative bodies, deepen cooperation between the parliamentary cooperation committees, joint working groups, special committees, and parliamentary friendship groups of the two countries, maintain exchanges and cooperation between the General Office of the CPC Central Committee and the Office of the President of the Russian Federation, conduct trust-building dialogues within the framework of strategic security consultations and law enforcement security cooperation mechanisms, and promote exchanges between political parties, civil societies, and academic circles in both countries.

Both sides are pleased to note that defense cooperation between the two countries is steadily advancing based on high-level strategic mutual trust, effectively safeguarding regional and global security. Both sides will further deepen military mutual trust and cooperation, expand the scale of joint training and exercises, regularly organize joint maritime and air patrols, strengthen coordination and cooperation within bilateral and multilateral frameworks, and continuously improve their capabilities and levels in jointly responding to risks and challenges.

Both sides attach great importance to cooperation in law enforcement and security, and are willing to strengthen cooperation in combating terrorism, separatism, extremism, and transnational organized crime within bilateral frameworks as well as under the United Nations, Shanghai Cooperation Organization, BRICS, and other frameworks. Both sides are committed to strengthening border area cooperation between the law enforcement departments of the two countries.

Both sides pointed out that using multilateral or national judiciary, or providing assistance to foreign judicial institutions or multilateral legal mechanisms to interfere in the sovereign affairs of countries is unacceptable. They expressed deep concern over the increasing politicization of international criminal justice and violations of human rights and sovereign immunity. Both sides believe that any actions taken by any country or group of this nature are illegal, violate recognized principles of international law, and will harm the international community’s ability to combat crime.

Both sides believe that according to the basic principles of international law on the sovereign equality of states, the relevant international obligations regarding the immunity of states and their property (including sovereign reserves) must be strictly observed. Both sides condemn attempts to confiscate foreign assets and property, emphasizing that affected countries have the right to take countermeasures in accordance with international law. Both sides are determined to protect each others national property within their own countries and ensure the safety, inviolability, and timely return of the other country’s property temporarily brought into their own country.

Both sides plan to improve the mechanisms for the recognition and enforcement of legal judgments stipulated in the Treaty between the Peoples Republic of China and the Russian Federation on Mutual Legal Assistance in Civil and Criminal Matters, signed on June 19, 1992.

Both sides will continue to strengthen practical cooperation in the field of emergency management, engage in cooperation in disaster prevention, mitigation, and relief, and safety production in areas such as space monitoring and aviation rescue technology, and organize joint rescue exercises and training sessions.

Both sides believe that practical cooperation between China and Russia is a crucial factor in promoting the economic and social development and common prosperity of both countries, ensuring technological progress and national economic sovereignty, achieving national modernization, enhancing the well-being of the people, and maintaining the stability and sustainability of the world economy. Both sides are willing to promote inclusive economic globalization.

Both sides condemned unilateral actions that bypassed the United Nations Security Council, violated international laws such as the United Nations Charter, and eroded justice and conscience, as well as unilateral measures that violated WTO rules. Restrictive measures that violate WTO rules hinder the development of free trade and have a negative impact on global industrial and supply chains. China and Russia are firmly opposed to this.

In addition, both sides emphasized their willingness to strengthen collaboration on multilateral platforms in professional fields, promote common positions, and oppose the politicization of the work of international organizations.

The Anatomy Of Zionist Genocide

The anatomy of Zionist genocide
What are the motivations behind Israel’s genocidal acts in Gaza, and what is the way forward?

By Yoav Litvin
Al Jazeera
December 23, 2023

On October 7, Hamas fighters BREACHED the Gaza prison fence, LAUNCHING A COORDINATED ATTACK on at least seven Israeli military installations and more than 20 surrounding residential communities. Over 1000 Israeli citizens, both civilian and military, as well as dozens of foreign nationals, were killed in the attack. Some 240 others were taken captive. Caught off guard and in disarray, the Israeli military responded to the attack in a frenzy, firing indiscriminately on breached localities, SLAYING Israeli captives alongside Hamas fighters in the process. It took the Israeli forces nearly a day to recapture all lost territory and secure the Gaza perimeter.

Following Hamas’s unprecedented incursion, Israels public relations apparatus launched a misinformation campaign aimed at inciting fear and fury and began to spread unverified atrocity propaganda. The campaign, involving tales of babies being “beheaded en masse”, “burned” and “hung on a clothesline”, helped transform the Israeli public;s shock into genocidal tribalism and diverted attention from Israel’s political, intelligence and military blunders that paved the way for the attack in the first place. The campaign also helped the government garner crucial public support for mass mobilisation of reserve units which made the consequent full-scale ground invasion of the Gaza Strip possible.

After securing unconditional military, political and diplomatic backing of its imperial sponsors in the West, most notably in Washington, and under the pretext of countering Hamas and rescuing captives, Israel then initiated what has since been accurately described as an AI-guided “mass assassination campaign” in Gaza.

Ten weeks on, most of Gaza is now destroyed, nearly 20,000 Palestinians are dead with many more still under the rubble, and the world continues to watch a genocide unfold in real time. Examining these events through a behavioural-neuroscientific lens could offer insights into the Zionist settler colonialist dynamic in general and the particular motivations behind Israels current genocidal acts in Gaza, as well as potential paths forward.

The pillars of Zionist propaganda

In response to historical trauma, Jewish people have a deep fear of anti-Semitism. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this fear, along with disdain for oppressors, led to the formation of autonomous Jewish self-defence groups in various geographies.

Zionism, a European colonial movement, recognised the potential of this dynamic. It syncretised Jewish longing for safety and self-defence with WHITE SPREMACIST, messianic and fascistic ideologies. This synthesis birthed a new, nationalist Jewish identity that equates Jewish safety with the construction of an exclusivist homeland in Palestine through the displacement of the region’s Indigenous populations.

Settler colonial endeavours typically depend on depicting the targeted territory as “uninhabited,” and its existing inhabitants as inhuman barbarians unworthy of any land.

This portrayal allowed Zionists to displace the Indigenous population of Palestine without moral qualms, portraying the establishment of Israel not as the destruction of a people but as the construction of a “villa in the jungle.”

Within the Israeli society grounded in land and resource theft, offensive aggression under the guise of “SELF DEFENCE” (as in “Israel Defence Force") has been rewarded and reinforced from the very beginning and consequently became a routine part of life. By reinstating fear and hijacking trauma associated with past and present negative experiences of Jewish people, Zionist leaders ensured the settler populations continued support for aggressive, expansionist, hegemonic, GENOCIDAL POLICIES and shielded their corruption and other criminal endeavours from public scrutiny.

To maintain Israel’s violently oppressive status quo and expand the territory of the settler colony, Zionists opportunistically conflated their colonial ideology with Judaism.

Citing divine dispensation, radical, far-right settlers have been encouraged to seize hilltops on Palestinian land, expel those living there, and form illegal outposts. These outposts are later fortified by the Israeli military and eventually “legalised” by the Zionist state.

Beyond justifying violent land theft, the conflation of Zionism and Judaism serves to delegitimise Indigenous resistance by equating any criticism of Zionism or Israel’s policies towards the Palestinians as an attack on Jews. Further, it hinders anticolonial resistance by portraying a political struggle over land and resources between occupying settlers backed by imperial forces and an Indigenous-occupied people as a supposed ancient religious “conflict” between equals.

This conflation encourages Zionist appropriation and exceptionalisation of Jewish victimhood. Israeli hasbara presents the Holocaust as an unparalleled genocide, granting Jews special victim status. This narrative justifies privileges, discounts and allowances for Israel as the “Jewish state” constructed to ensure the safety of Jews, at the expense of Indigenous Palestinians. Notably, Zionist revisionism often neglects and downplays Nazi crimes against other oppressed groups, including communists, socialists, Roma, disabled individuals, LGBTQI and African Germans.

The liberal wing of Zionism serves to whitewash the reactionary core of the movement and conceal its true objectives - expansionism and apartheid. Misleadingly, Liberal Zionists portray Zionism as an ideology aligned with democratic, progressive values and human rights, falsely projecting a genuine commitment to peace, justice and full integration into the Middle East.

Fear and genocidal fervour

Until October 7, Israel upheld its founding aspiration, enforcing a doctrine of ENDLESS OCCUPATION while oscillating between IMPLICIT and explicit forms of genocide, the latter often described as “mowing the lawn” in reference to Israels periodical attacks on Gaza since its 2005 “withdrawal” from the besieged Palestinian enclave.  During this time, Israeli Zionists reaped the benefits of Palestinian land and its resources in a modern, affluent, supposedly democratic consumer paradise, fostering robust connections and identification with white US and Europe and oil/cash-rich Gulf monarchies, rather than its immediate neighbours.

On October 7, intense fear and shock gripped Israeli society, presenting Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right government with a golden opportunity to quash rising dissent against corruption, and please his coalition members with a genocidal land grab.

Fear in Israel is sustained through militarisation, anti-Palestinian narratives, reframing resistance as “terrorism,” remembering past atrocities, focusing on perceived threats and promoting segregation, ie, apartheid. Chronic fear induces symptoms akin to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), making the Israeli population prone to aggression masked as “self-defence.”

The toxic mix of fear, DEHUMANISING propaganda, rewards for aggression and intense apartheid has bred a lack of empathy in Israelis toward Palestinians. Despite claiming the Gaza conflict as “self-defence,” Israeli leaders openly blame Palestinian society as a whole, essentially sanctioning collective punishment of civilians. Daily, Israeli institutional leaders mock Palestinian culture and cheerlead the torture, displacement and annihilation of Palestinians, revealing a disturbing genocidal mindset.

The path forward

On October 7, the carefully constructed Zionist facade of incremental genocide within a liberal/democratic framework collapsed, exposing Israels genocidal and fascistic core. Zionists in Israel and beyond did not mourn the end of this charade, and instead celebrated their newfound freedom to kill and destroy Palestinians without any restraint or pretence. This development not only poses a threat of elimination to the Palestinian people but since the Occupied Territories are used as a laboratory for the development and testing of new military technology and strategies, it could also set the stage for similar violent escalations against oppressed communities in the Global South as well as against BIPOC and immigrant communities within the Global North.

Israel’s genocidal behaviour in Gaza and elsewhere in historic Palestine resonates with patterns seen in the Stanford prison experiment and the MILGRAM obedience study. In the latter, individuals, swayed by authority, had administered potentially lethal shocks to other participants.

For Zionists to break their addiction to aggression, they would need to go through a process of deprogramming and decolonisation. This would require them to embrace the truth about the history and nature of Zionism, commit to sincere accountability, recognise the humanity of Palestinians, and empathise with their suffering and plight. Once the oppressive structure, Zionism, is disassembled, it can be effectively dismantled, paving the way for a process of rehumanisation and reconciliation through the use of empathy. Liberation, reconciliation and an end to Israels genocidal violence can only be achieved within a steadfast and unwavering anti-Zionist framework that aligns with wider leftist, antiracist, anticolonial values.

US Military COVID Coup Against America

US Military’s COVID Coup Against Americ

By Neenah Payne
Activist Post
May 20, 2024

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is the author of THE REAL ANTHONY FAUCI: BILL GATES, BIG PHARMA, AND THE GLOBAL WAR ON DEMOCRACY AND PUBLIC HEALTH which has over 25,000 reviews on Amazon and. The book is a best seller on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon.

DESPITE MASS CENSORSHIP, RFK Jr’s Book On FAUCI’S CORRUPTION Is #1 Best Seller On Amazon, NY Times, Wall St. Journal points out:

For anyone who doubts that the Covid-19 crisis is an intelligence-run operation controlled by spooks working with medical technocrats like ANTHONY FAUCI, billionaires such as BILL GATES, the military, media, BIG PHARMA, the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM, etc., a close reading of this book - with its 2,194 references - will disabuse one of that illusion.

In Part 1 of the two-part interview below, Kennedy explains that Dr. Anthony Fauci was the Director of the National Institute of (NIAID) Allergic and Infectious Diseases from 1968 until he resigned in 2023. He points out that in 1968, 6% of Americans had chronic diseases, but by 2000, it was 64%. He says that while Fauci focused on allergic and infectious diseases, he ignored much more important chronic diseases. Kennedy points out that since the US had the worst record in handling COVID, its hard to understand why Fauci is still a hero.

Kennedy explains how the military industrial complex used COVID to wage a coup against the US Constitution. Kennedy points out near the end of Part 1 that in his legendary FAREWELL ADDRESS on January 17, 1961, President DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER (a 5-star general) warned America about the DANGERS of the military industrial complex in what Kennedy considers the most important speech in American history.

COVID Policies: Destruction of US Constitution

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (Part 1): THE DARK SIDE OF THE CHILDHOOD IMMUNIZATION SCHEDULE AND THE VACCINE APPROVAL PROCESS. 3/11/23

Kennedy explains that President John Kennedy wanted to dismantle the Central Intelligence Agency. He was able to avert a war with Russia because he ignored the advice of his generals and created a hotline to talk directly to NIKITA KHRUSCHEV of Russia.

Kennedy discusses how our God-given rights protected by the US Constitution were eroded starting with the Patriot Act after the 9/11 attacks. He explains how the erosion accelerated during COVID with the violation of the FIRST AMENDMENT protection of Free Speech (censorship on social media, ridicule of scientists and doctors by the government and corporate media), Freedom of Assembly (lockdown), Freedom of Religion as churches and synagogues were closed for a year.

Kennedy points out that during COVID, the government got rid of the BILL OF RIGHTS and the government began censoring speech for the first time in American history. He explains that the US Founding Fathers put Freedom of Speech in the First Amendment because all the other rights depend on it. He points out, “If a government has license to silence its critics, it has license for every atrocity”. Kennedy reminds us, “As soon as they asserted the power to suppress dissent, they closed all the churches - for a year! There was no process, no hearings, no rational.” So, the government got rid of Freedom of Religion. The government used “social distancing” and “shelter in place” to get rid of Freedom of Assembly.

Kennedy points out that it was a violation of the FIFTH AMENDMENT when the government closed 3.3 million small businesses without due process or just compensation. He explains that the SEVENTH AMENDMENT allows Americans to sue corporations for any injuries over $25. Yet, people injured by the COVID shots (which were mandatory in much of the government, many schools and businesses, and military) have no recourse. Kennedy concludes, “Suddenly, it became OK to suspend the US Constitution - and thats pretty hard to explain.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (Part 2): FROM EVENT 201 TO DARK WINTER, THE PANDEMIC SIMULATIONS THAT FORESHADOWED OUR NEW REALITY

In Part 2, Kennedy discusses EVENT 201, the simulation hosted by Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, and Johns Hopkins in October 2019. Kennedy explains that GEORGE GAO, a member of the Chinese Communist Party participated in the simulation of how to handle a coronavirus pandemic in America! Kennedy points out that Gao must have known that COVID was already circulating in China by then.

Why was a member of the Community Party invited to a simulation on how to prepare Americans for a pandemic? Kennedy points out that during the Great Depression, President Roosevelt calmed the nation with a speech in which he said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself!” Kennedy says Roosevelt saw that Germany, Italy, and the Soviet Union were using fear to become dictatorships and protected America from that course.

Kennedy points out that during COVID,

For the first time in our history, we had a government that was drumming up fear, that was trying to make us scared. And they were all in line with the mainstream media and the social media, pumping fear into us every single day.

Kennedy explains that “We were the Land of the Free because we were the Home of the Brave.” However, during COVID, we traded our freedom and rights for safety. Kennedy says, “Fear is the tool of tyrants” because it causes many people to by-pass critical thinking and just obey authorities. The non-stop fear-mongering by the US government, legacy media, and social media got Americans to surrender their God-given rights protected by the US Constitution.

The World Health Organization and World Economic Forum are trying to expand on the erosion of our freedoms and national sovereignty now.

Inflation Is A Policy

Gold Does Not Reflect Monetary Destruction, Yet

By Daniel Lacalle
May 19, 2024

The money supply is rising again, and persistent inflation is not a surprise. Inflation occurs when the amount of currency increases significantly above private sector demand. For investors, the worst decision in this environment of monetary destruction is to invest in sovereign bonds and keep cash. The governments destruction of the purchasing power of the currency is a policy, not a coincidence.

Readers ask me why the government would be interested in eroding the purchasing power of the currency they issue. It is remarkably simple.

Inflation is the equivalent of an implicit default. It is a manifestation of the lack of solvency and credibility of the currency issuer.

Governments know that they can disguise their fiscal imbalances through the gradual reduction of the purchasing power of the currency and with this policy, they achieve two things: Inflation is a hidden transfer of wealth from deposit savers and real wages to the government; it is a disguised tax. Additionally, the government expropriates wealth from the private sector, making the productive part of the economy assume the default of the currency issuer by imposing the utilization of its currency by law as well as forcing economic agents to purchase its bonds via regulation. The entire financial systems regulation is built on the false premise that the lowest-risk asset is the sovereign bond. This forces banks to accumulate currency - sovereign bonds - and regulation incentivizes state intervention and crowding out of the private sector by forcing through regulation to use zero to little capital to finance government entities and the public sector.

Once we understand that inflation is a policy and that it is an implicit default of the issuer, we can comprehend why the traditional sixty-forty portfolio does not work.

Currency is debt and sovereign bonds are currency. When governments have exhausted their fiscal space, the crowding-out effect of the state on credit adds to the rising taxation levels to cripple the potential of the productive economy, the private sector, in favor of constantly rising government unfunded liabilities.

Economists warn of rising debt, which is correct, but we sometimes ignore the impact on currency purchasing power of unfunded liabilities. The United States is enormous at $34 trillion, and the public deficit is intolerable at nearly $2 trillion per year, but that is a drop in the bucket compared with the unfunded liabilities that will cripple the economy and erode the currency in the future.

The estimated unfunded Social Security and Medicare liability is $175.3 trillion (Financial Report of the United States Government, February 2024). Yes, that is 6.4 times the GDP of the United States. If you think that will be financed with taxes “for the rich,” you have a problem with mathematics.

The situation in the United States is not an exception. In countries like Spain, unfunded public pension liabilities exceed 500% of GDP. In the European Union, according to Eurostat, the average is close to 200% of GDP. And that is only unfunded pension liabilities. Eurostat does not analyze unfunded entitlement program liabilities.

This means that governments will continue to use the “tax the rich” false narrative to increase taxation on the middle class and impose the most regressive tax of all, inflation.

It is not a coincidence that central banks want to implement digital currencies as quickly as possible. Central Bank Digital currencies are surveillance disguised as money and a means of eliminating the limitations of the inflationary policies of the current quantitative easing programs. Central bankers are increasingly frustrated because the transmission mechanisms of monetary policy are not fully under their control. By eliminating the banking channel and thus the inflation backstop of credit demand, central banks and governments can try to eliminate the competition of independent forms of money through coercion and debase the currency at will to maintain and increase the size of the state in the economy.

Gold vs. bonds shows this perfectly. Gold has risen 89% in the past five years, compared to 85% for the S&P 500 and a disappointing 0.7% for the US aggregate bond index (as of May 17, 2024, according to Bloomberg).

Financial assets are reflecting the evidence of currency destruction. Equities and gold soar; bonds do nothing. It is the picture of governments using the fiat currency to disguise the credit solvency of the issuer.

Considering all this, gold is not expensive at all. It is exceedingly cheap. Central banks and policymakers know that there will be only one way to square the public accounts with trillions of dollars of unfunded liabilities. Repay those obligations with a worthless currency. Staying in cash is dangerous; accumulating government bonds is reckless; but rejecting gold is denying the reality of money.
