200,000 Unvaccinated Military Members Denied Temporary Restraining Order as Commanders Threaten Those who Refuse COVID-19 Vaccines

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

Several military members told Health Impact News today that their commanders are coercing members of their unit to get the COVID-19 shot TODAY (September 7, 2021) or face the consequences of disobeying a direct order.

One member stated that when they went by the local pharmacy in a drug store, there were many military members lined up to get the shots today, fearful of the consequences if they don’t.

And this is in spite of the fact that military officials are saying publicly that service members still have 2 to 3 months to comply, according to Military.com.

Military Members are Dying and Suffering Crippling Effects from COVID Vaccinations

EWR comment: And did the military ever care about their own? They’ve been called cannon fodder. Remember the mysterious ‘Gulf War Syndrome’? Watch ‘Anybody’s son will do’. War is about profits, remember Gen Smedley Butler and ‘War is a Racket’. (There is an audio book also on YT of his full book). In the over all plan of things wars just bring about the plans of the (not) elite, rich folk who are depopulating the planet for themselves aka one world government.

Several military families are claiming to have been affected by these COVID shots. They range from members in the earlier phases of their careers, to those retired.

This article will focus on six of them, two of which are deaths.

Brooke is an active duty military member who almost lost her life and her leg after her Pfizer shot, according to her parents. Her mother Rachel Gronbach and father Greg Gronbach have both posted on social media in regards to their daughter’s experience, and it sounds pretty traumatic. Brookes experience with her Pfizer shot, has changed the course of her life.

Brooke had her shot in December then developed blood clots in her lungs. She underwent emergency surgery, and was placed in ICU. The vascular surgeon initially thought her leg would need amputated due to one of the clots that was 3” and because it had been stuck for several hours.

Brooke has undergone seven surgeries since January and has at least one or two more to go. She will be on blood thinners for the rest of her life. According to Brookes mother, Brooke’s military career is over. 2021 has been quite a setback for this once healthy 23 year old woman.

An impassioned plea from another woman widowed by ‘coincidence’ (now an updated link)

NOTE: you may find you cannot play any of these links. Have a try anyway. This serves to illustrate the censorship that abounds right across the net. If such an alarming result the day after a medical treatment had happened, in normal circumstances, this would be treated very seriously. But no, this event and I assure you, many more like it are being hidden from your sight. Think on that and ask yourself why? (You could alternatively go to my channel at bitchute.com and search for my channel which is ‘dovetail90’ and you will find the video there. Don’t try searching the title as that brings up an error page also. Similarly on fb the links are censored so you can’t see it). EWR

Her husband told her ‘don’t be silly, lots have had it and are fine’. He went to bed with a bad headache & said he was fine, in the morning he was dead and blue in their bed. How heartbreaking. This dear woman was told as is everybody it seems, that this was a coincidence. Really?

How can all those THOUSANDS of deaths be coincidence? Scan our news page, right hand column, to see those from a few of the world’s countries. Not all. Why is this jab not being withdrawn as were others after just 50 deaths? Wake up people.

Watch it at the first link…

Attorney Files Lawsuit Against CDC Based on “Sworn Declaration” from Whistleblower Claiming 45,000 Deaths are Reported to VAERS – All Within 3 Days of COVID-19 Shots

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

Ohio-based Attorney Thomas Renz was one of several speakers this past weekend at a conference in Anaheim, California, where he announced that with the help of America’s Frontline Doctors, he was filing a federal lawsuit in Alabama based on a “sworn declaration, under threat of perjury,” from an alleged whistleblower who claims to have inside knowledge of a cover-up of reported deaths filed with the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), which is operated by the CDC.

This whistleblower has allegedly claimed, under oath, that there are at least 45,000 reported deaths that have occurred within 3 days of receiving a COVID-19 “vaccine.” Renz states that this report of 45,000 deaths is just from “one system” that reports to VAERS.

This would be significantly greater than what the CDC is currently reporting, which is 10,991 deaths, and many of those are beyond 3 days following the shots. See:

CENSORED: CDC Records Almost 12,000 DEATHS in 7 Months Following COVID-19 Injections

Renz also states that he believes Google, Facebook, and Twitter are “complicit with causing death” due to their censorship, and he stated “I cannot wait to sue you, over and over again.”

Govts world wide are systematically destroying your food supplies: NZ is no exception – MUST WATCH

A video from the Ice Age Farmer produced late last year.

Blatant and deliberate swipes at destroying our food supplies. NZ evangelist & investigative author, the late Barry Smith, wrote about this over two decades back as he witnessed the shooting of livestock and destruction of fruit trees in Australia. And remember the time-worn quote by Kissinger that I see debunked now (by those people that censor your info truth streams). Control the food, control the people. See the meme below. These folk are seasoned killers. That is not too strong a word. They are eugenecists, it is on record they see us as ‘the herd’, & ‘useless eaters’. Culling us is no problem to them. No problem at all. And they are clever enough of course to hide their MO from plain view by calling us conspiracy theorists. EWR

From the Health Forum NZ @ facebook

VAERS database (USA) 9th July, 2021

This is the USA VAERS data base summary for the 9th July. This data base now has around 3 months of data which has not been loaded yet. VAERS is acknowledged as capturing around 1% of actual injury and death. However, I believe that this reporting rate will be slightly higher with CV V. If we generously assume an above average reporting rate of 5% (which is the rate acknowledged for the NZ Medsafe reporting)….You will need to multiply these numbers by 20 to get a more accurate picture.

In 1976 with 3 deaths the Swine flu jab halted: fast forward 2021, over 4,000 jab related deaths and the rollout keeps rolling

From The Health Forum NZ fb page

In 1976 the world was in the grip of pandemic terror….with the SWINE FLU. A rapidly developed and released V was seen to be humanity’s great saviour. In America THREE PEOPLE died after the V….And the powers that be halted the V program, as a safety precaution.

Now…fast forward to 2021 and there are over 4,000 CV V related deaths in the USA adverse events data base. Remembering that only a small percentage of all injury and death is actually reported to this system (somewhere between 1 and 5%).

Has the V roll out been paused? No….it hurtles on like a runaway freight train, while Americans (and New Zealanders) are placated and reassured daily of the V’s SAFETY AND EFFICACY.

6000% Increase in Reported Vaccine Deaths 1st Quarter 2021 Compared to 1st Quarter 2020

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

As can be expected when new experimental “vaccines” that are not approved by the FDA are given emergency use authorization to fight a “pandemic” that is now over a year old, reported deaths following the injections of these shots have now skyrocketed in the U.S. population by over 6000% here at the end of the first quarter of 2021, as compared to recorded deaths following FDA-approved vaccines at the end of the first quarter of 2020.

These new products, which many doctors and scientists claim do not even meet the legal definition of a “vaccine,” are described by the manufacturers themselves as “operating systems” called the “software of life,” and prior to COVID they have never been approved to be used on human populations.

There are literally thousands of doctors and scientists around the world who have spoken out against these experimental injections, some even calling them “biological weapons of mass destruction.”

Who’s keeping track of the “adverse reactions” to the COVID-19 vaccines in the US? No one, really

From Mark Crispin Miller

Who’s keeping track of the “adverse reactions” to the COVID-19 vaccines in the US?

No one, really

After all, you can’t report what you’ve been careful not to study (just as with vaccine safety).

From “COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects: Is the System Working?” in MedPage Today:

QUOTE: Marshall: Now when it comes to the COVID vaccines, we’re seeing all three of those [data collection systems] being employed, correct?

Kesselheim: Well, so far with the COVID vaccine, you know —

Marshall: You hesitated there. So I’m assuming that’s probably a no?

Kesselheim: Well, I mean, I think that there are a lot of ways that the post-market surveillance of the COVID vaccine could be going better. I think that we are seeing a lot of spontaneous reporting. And we are seeing a lot of local institutions keeping track of people who receive vaccines and sort of mini registries in a sense. So far in the U.S. we’ve only had vaccines available through Emergency Use Authorizations.

We haven’t yet had those kinds of formal post-approval studies that have been developed and designed for these trials. So we haven’t really seen that yet.

And the other major issue is, right now a lot of vaccines are being given outside of healthcare systems, through public, state government supported vaccine delivery websites and the goal here being to get as many vaccines as quickly as possible into people as quickly as possible.

The Yellow Brick Road – How Rocket Lab Success Was Built At The Expense of the Locals

postman-productions.com

“Steinlarger in association with Michael Fay and Lockheed Martin give you the Americas Cup sport of billionaires, Hypersonic missiles built for delivering nukes and a revised vision of what NZ nuclear free legacy was all about. And if you think TVNZ is going to challenge that idea then you really have no idea of how marketing dollars and political lobbying works.”

“First introduced to NZ by inside trader Michael Fay a key architect in the Pacific Reset Pacer program which seek to use sport and advertising sponsorship to hide how the Pacific cultures are to be assimilated and used as cheap migrant labour for the tech industry who seek to exploit their natural resources.”

“Originally local workers did menial work at Rocket Lab but have now being shut out as the facility becomes increasingly militarised.”

“2015 New Zealand’s Rocket Lab secured financial backing from US aerospace giant Lockheed Martin and the US Navy. Lockheed Martin a designer and manufacturer of missiles and fighter jets for the US military and chief player in the plans to mine the Pacific and New Zealand deep sea minerals. Rocket Lab yesterday announced Lockheed Martin is investing in the company to support the development of future aerospace and marine technologies. In fact many of the engineers of Electron rocket are ex-Team New Zealand (the brain child of investment banker Michael Fay) engineers. It specialises in small lift capabilities and hypersonic flight technology that lie at the heart if the ew nuclear arms race.”

The US military’s practice bombing runs in 1994 over a small town that preceded 6 downfalls of mysterious gelatinous rain & widespread unexplained & serious illnesses

Should you deny or disbelieve that biowarfare has been secretly unleashed on citizens for a very long time, this story is going to be a little difficult for you to explain away as normal weather. (Read to the end for a similar event in NZ) EWR

In August 1994, Oakville, Washington, heavy rainfall in the small town turned out to be tiny blobs of gelatinous goo. It blanketed 20 square miles and brought with it a plague .. everybody in the whole town got a really bad unusual flu that lasted from 7 weeks to 2-3 months.

Two policemen at 3 am stopped to clean their windscreen of the goo which turned out to be like gello they said. By mid afternoon that day one of them said he was very ill and could barely breathe. Another woman in the town who touched the goo said she became dizzy and nauseated and eventually collapsed on the floor. Her family who found her there reported she was cold, drenched with perspiration and pale. She had been vomiting, and had extreme vertigo and blurred vision. She spent 3 days in hospital & was diagnosed with a severe inner ear infection. They took a sample of the goo to the hospital lab where they found it contained human white blood cells, however there were no conclusions about what the substance was or why it had fallen from the sky. The goo was then forwarded to the Washington State Dept of Health for further analysis. Microbiologist Mike McDowell said “It was very uniform, there was no structure that we could see visibly or under a microscope”. After attempting to isolate bacteria it was found the substance was teeming with two species of bacteria … one of which makes its home in the human digestive system. Human waste from an aircraft was ruled out as the cause.

The gelatinous rain fell down 6 times over a 3 week period. Dozens of people fell ill and several cats and dogs reportedly died. The substance and any connection it may have had with the outbreak of sickness remained a mystery.

A year after the incident the woman who had collapsed took a sample she’d stored in her freezer to a private research lab. The microbiologist from Amtest labs said he’d identified what he thought was a cell that has a definable nucleus and is found present in most animals. The conclusion was that this was living matter but posed the question how did it make its way into the clouds? Inevitably the finger of suspicion was pointed directly at the military. Since the Navy had been conducting live bombing runs at sea, and confirmed this, they nevertheless deny any knowledge of the unknown substance, or any involvement in creating or dispersing it. The locals didn’t buy that. Locals reported a significant number of military craft flying over their homes prior to the event. Every day apparently there were low flying bombers and helicopters, all black in colour. Another local said that the military let off things in the air all the time there … testing all over the place with a lot of places out of bounds for people. Clearly the locals suspected biological warfare, and believed that they were being used for a ‘test run’ to see what might happen.

RT – Jan 5, 2020

Hours after threatening to destroy 52 Iranian sites, President Trump went back on Twitter to brag about two trillion dollars’ worth of ‘beautiful’ US military hardware, which he expects will carry out the destruction.

Facing promises of retaliation for the killing of a popular Iranian general whose death he ordered personally, Donald Trump threatened in no uncertain terms to escalate the conflict further. He said that if Tehran fails to turn the other cheek, the US will hit 52 Iranian sites of great value. Hours later, the US president returned to Twitter to brag about the amount of money the US military has received for equipment under his watch.

‘A Dystopian Surveillance State Being Built in Plain Sight’: Pentagon Tests Radar-Equipped Balloons to Spy on Vehicles Across Midwest

From commondreams.org

“These programs are not about stopping violence, they’re about social control.”

Millions of Americans across the Midwest this summer are being subjected to surveillance from above as the Pentagon experiments with the use of surveillance radars attached to high-altitude balloons.

“Even in tests, they’re still collecting a lot of data on Americans: who’s driving to the union house, the church, the mosque, the Alzheimer’s clinic. We should not go down the road of allowing this to be used in the United States.”
—Jay Stanley, ACLU

As The Guardian reported Friday, the defense and aerospace contractor Sierra Nevada Corporation was authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to send up to 25 balloons across six states to track vehicles.

U.S. Southern Command commissioned the project for the stated purpose of creating a “persistence surveillance system” to deter drug traffickers and perceived “homeland security threats.”

Civil liberties advocates were distressed at the newly-reported project on Friday, which the Sierra Nevada Corporation obtained a license to begin on July 12 and end on September 1.

“The deployment of this kind of surveillance capability in the United States is incredibly alarming,” Mana Azarmi, policy counsel for the Center for Democracy and Technology, told Common Dreams. “Persistent government surveillance, such as that facilitated by this technology, raises many civil liberties concerns and should not be permitted in the absence of a warrant.”

“Mass surveillance doesn’t make us safer,” the digital rights group Fight for the Future tweeted.

EDUCATIONAL LAUNCH OF NANOSATELLITES (ELANA)-19 LIFT-OFF, 16 DECEMBER 2018. PHOTO: ROCKET LAB / TREVOR MAHLMANN

Its latest mission may be inadvertently exposing New Zealand to the militarisation of space, writes Ollie Neas.

Rocket Lab made history on Sunday as its first ever mission for NASA made orbit from the Mahia Peninsula. The mission was the first dedicated launch of miniature satellites, or CubeSats, for NASA by a commercial launch provider.

But this was not the only reason the Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa)-19 was historic. It was also the first time a satellite for a US defence agency was launched from New Zealand.

Although described as an “educational” mission, ELaNa-19 included a satellite that will conduct research for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, the Pentagon agency which develops cutting-edge technology for the US military.

DARPA’s involvement with this satellite, called the SHFT-1, has not been publicly disclosed by Rocket Lab. Nor does it appear to have been disclosed to the minister for economic development, David Parker, who approved the launch.

This launch is set to be followed by another for DARPA in early 2019 as part of a US Department of Defense programme to demonstrate that it can launch satellites rapidly in the increasingly contested space environment.

These developments come after The Spinoff revealed the extent of Rocket Lab’s work for US defence agencies last month, and signal New Zealand’s creeping involvement in US programmes to enhance its military capabilities in space.

A defence and security expert says these launches expose the risk of New Zealand inadvertently militarising space, and could also undermine New Zealand’s national security.

The SHFT-1 is described in Rocket Lab press releases as a NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory satellite. But NASA’s own Orbital Debris Risk Assessment Plan for the mission indicates that the SHFT-1 is in fact a project of the DARPA Strategic Technology Office (STO), though it was designed by NASA.

The STO focuses on “technologies that enable fighting as a network to increase military effectiveness, cost leverage, and adaptability”. DARPA’s mission generally is to “maintain and advance the capabilities and technical superiority of the United States military”.

A DARPA spokesperson told The Spinoff that the SHFT-1 will measure radio frequencies to improve the performance of over-the-horizon radar ( OTHR).

OTHR is a type of radar system that can detect targets over long distances by bouncing radio waves off the ionosphere, which is a layer of the atmosphere. Its military uses include detecting missiles and stealth aircraft.

But there is no mention of DARPA or OTHR in the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s briefing to the economic development minister David Parker, who approved the launch, although one paragraph of the briefing is redacted.

Released under the Official Information Act, this briefing simply describes the SHFT-1 as a NASA JPL satellite that will “study high-frequency signals to support research into galactic background emissions”.

MBIE advised the Parker that it had not identified any national interest concerns from the ELaNa-19 satellites and the New Zealand Intelligence Community identified no risks to national security. Parker’s office declined to confirm to The Spinoff whether he was personally aware that the SHFT-1 is part of a DARPA project, but responded that the minister was briefed on the launch.

“The Minister is satisfied that all the payloads, including the SHFT-1, are to be used to advance science and for research and development purposes and that the mission and purpose of the payloads is not contrary to our national interest,” his office said.

The Outer Space and High-Altitude Activities Act allows the minister to veto a satellite if it is not in the national interest. Although it prohibits the launch of weapons of mass destruction, it does not preclude the use of space for military purposes generally.

MBIE was asked to comment on whether it informed the minister about DARPA’s involvement, but said it would be treating The Spinoff’s questions as an Official Information Act request. Rocket Lab, which provided comment for The Spinoff’s last article, did not reply to a request for comment about the SHFT-1.

Little has been revealed publicly about the broader SHFT programme, which stands for the Space-based High Frequency Testbed. But public records show that US federal government contracts for the programme have been awarded to the defence and weapons contractor Raytheon, the scientific research institute SRI International, and Systems & Technology LLC, a company specialising in “advanced research and development for defense, intelligence and homeland security applications”.

The second DARPA satellite to be launched from New Zealand is called the R3D2 and is part of a joint programme between DARPA and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Last month The Spinoff revealed that Rocket Lab would be launching this satellite but until now it was not known whether the launch would be from Rocket Lab’s New Zealand launch site on the Mahia Peninsula, its yet-to-be-constructed site in the US, or some other site entirely.

DARPA now confirms that the launch will be from the Mahia Peninsula and likely in February or March 2019. Rocket Lab has not publicised this launch in any way and has declined two invitations from The Spinoff to comment on it.

David Parker’s office says that he has been informed about DARPA’s interest in the launch but has not considered an application for the R3D2 satellite. “Each application for a payload permit is considered on a case-by-case basis against the requirements in the Outer Space and High-altitude Activities Act,” his office said.

DARPA spokesperson Jared Adams says that the R3D2, which stands for RF Risk Reduction Deployment Demonstration, will demonstrate a new type of “membrane reflect-array antenna”.

“The demo seeks to prove a smaller, faster to launch and cheaper capability, providing increased communication coverage typically covered by geo-communications satellites. The R3D2 effort is in partnership with, and sponsored by, the Office of the Secretary of Defense as part of an effort to demonstrate rapid acquisition of small satellite and launch capabilities.”

It is not clear whether other satellites will be included on this launch. But the US Department of Defense will pay Rocket Lab US$6.5 million, which is close to the US$6.95 million for the whole NASA ELaNa-19 mission.

The US Department of Defense has actively pursued rapid launch capabilities in recent years as other nations challenge its dominance in space. Responding to these challenges, the Trump Administration announced plans in August to create a dedicated Space Force as a sixth branch of the US military.

Rocket Lab’s two DARPA launches indicate that New Zealand is to play a role in US space initiatives. Terry Johanson, a lecturer at Massey University’s Centre for Defence and Security Studies, says that this may pose risks to New Zealand’s national security.

“Some of the threats are from our own cooperation with a larger partner who wants to push their own national interest, which may not necessarily align to what our national interests are in maintaining the non-militarisation of space,” he said.

“An opponent of America could see New Zealand as a more vulnerable area in which to target indirectly America’s space programme or defence program. For example, Russia, North Korea or China could potentially undertake operations here to sabotage the American defense programme.”

Johanson also suggests the government may not have full information about what is being launched from New Zealand due to the Technology Safeguards Agreement, the treaty signed to allow for the transfer of US rocket technology to New Zealand.

The agreement requires the US to provide a written statement about spacecraft it proposes to launch from New Zealand, but precludes New Zealand from launching any spacecraft that the US deems contrary to its laws or policies.

Last Thursday Winston Peters, who is the disarmament and arms control minister, announced that New Zealand will chair the Missile Technology Control Regime in 2019.

“New Zealand’s emerging space industry makes it particularly relevant at this time that we contribute to the effective international control of sensitive missile-related technologies,” Peters said.

Rocket Lab now supported by ACC … so what lies inside their secret US military contracts?

Apologies, I had to repost this as the layout turned to custard with no editing option & half the info disappearing …… so

We have posted previously on the Rocket Lab.  (For other articles on topic use the search box). Partnering / funded with / by defense contractor Lockheed Martin, the NZ Govt (which note, is a corporation) and now ACC (also a corporation)? This is something I’m watching. The article below is from thespinoff.co.nz

Ollie Neas | Guest writer
Investigation

Rocket Lab is a celebrated New Zealand success story, with a stated mission to open access to space and improve life on Earth. Yet many of its key contracts are with the US military and their suppliers. Ollie Neas reports on the dark side of a local business hero.

Last Friday Rocket Lab announced that it had secured US$140m (NZ$206m) in new funding from a range of investors, including the publicly-owned ACC.

After a launch the Sunday before, this announcement marked the second time in a week that hundreds of international media outlets took notice of Rocket Lab and, by extension, New Zealand.

At home, though, the issue has been whether New Zealand deserves more of the credit for the billion-dollar company’s success, with Chris Keall in the New Zealand Herald querying descriptions of Rocket Lab as an “American start-up”.

However, there is another side to Rocket Lab, one that raises questions about New Zealand’s – and ACC’s – support for the company.

In the U.S. 49.7 Million Are Now Poor, and 80% of the Total Population Is Near Poverty

From politicalblindspot.com

If you live in the United States, there is a good chance that you are now living in poverty or near poverty. Nearly 50 million Americans, (49.7 Million), are living below the poverty line, with 80% of the entire U.S. population living near poverty or below it.

That near poverty statistic is perhaps more startling than the 50 million Americans below the poverty line, because it translates to a full 80% of the population struggling with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on government assistance to help make ends meet.

In September, the Associated Press pointed to survey data that told of an increasingly widening gap between rich and poor, as well as the loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs that used to provide opportunities for the “Working Class” to explain an increasing trend towards poverty in the U.S.

But the numbers of those below the poverty line does not merely reflect the number of jobless Americans. Instead, according to a revised census measure released Wednesday, the number – 3 million higher than what the official government numbers imagine – are also due to out-of-pocket medical costs and work-related expenses.

Irma & Jose mentioned in new aid Bill HR 3732 (amended in Sept 2017) (this amended post replaces the previous retracted one)

I recently retracted this post to investigate further following comments both here and elsewhere that HR 3732 did not include Irma & Jose in its original wording but was amended on Sep 11th to include provision (increased from $1 million to $25 million) for victims of Hurricanes Irma & Jose. It was signed by the President on Sept 12th. Apologies if my headline misled anybody. I have reworded the post’s headline.

That said, I do not retract my belief that these hurricanes nevertheless are man made or that these two were indeed therefore pre planned.  There is enough evidence of that activity to date. I am simply retracting my headline that was written in misunderstanding of the Congress Bill.

In this post I’m adding DAHBOO77’s video that also questions the Bill & its wording.

You can also view the original video which is cited by  thecontrail.com

The author of that video believes the hurricanes were planned long ago… if you strongly disagree please go to Youtube & comment.

Quote: “Thanks to Farmer Tim for providing absolute proof that Hurricane Irma and Jose were well planned out, even monetized nine full months before the events!

2030 Agenda: UN Plan for World Govt & Total Dictatorship – a break down of the facts

This video from the John Birch Society is from 2015, breaking down the content of Agenda 2030 (the sequel or extended version of Agenda 21).

Published on Aug 17, 2015

JBS CEO Art Thompson’s weekly news video update for Aug. 17 – 23, 2015. In this week’s Analysis Behind the News video, JBS CEO Art Thompson discusses how many Americans have chased Agenda 21 planning out of their communities, but now the UN is replacing the Agenda 21 terminology with “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”; how the “2030 Agenda” will lead to a UN-dominated world government; how the “2030 Agenda” is grounded on the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which amounts to saying that rights are granted by the UN, not by God as our Declaration of Independence asserts; how the “2030 Agenda” promotes world-wide migration without regard to national boundaries; and how you can obtain a copy of the UN document, “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” at https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org…

CIA Whistleblower Risks All To Expose the Shadow Government

If you don’t believe there’s a shadow government in the US (its tentacles in most other countries also with the end game world control via the monetary system & banking – think Rogernomics) you need to watch JFK to 9/11, Everything’s a Rich Man’s Trick. A total expose.

Kevin Shipp was a decorated CIA officer who refused to look the other way in regard to government criminality and cover-up. At a very important public awareness event, held by GeoengineerWatch.org in Northern California, on July 28th, 2017, Mr. Shipp presented a shocking and compelling presentation on numerous, horrific and ongoing government crimes. The total persecution of anyone who dares to tell the truth about rampant government tyranny is also fully exposed. The paradigm we have all known has been built on deception and the dark agendas of the global power structure. The courage Kevin Shipp has shown by doing his best to expose government criminality and tyranny serves as a stellar example to us all.
We desperately need other individuals in government agencies and the US military to follow Kevin’s lead. All of us are essential in the battle to help wake the masses to the truth so that the whistleblowers have the support they need to come forward. If we have any chance of stopping the completely out of control criminal cabal that currently runs our country and much of the world, we must all make our voices heard, we must all join the fight for the greater good.

Key’s ‘great’ legacy … UNICEF ranks NZ third highest in the developed world for child poverty … guess who ranks first?

This is shocking data. Are we surprised though? Really?  Key has been minimizing the impact of his neo-liberal economics package upon the lower echelons of this increasingly lop sided state of affairs we have for some time now. See the myth that trickle down economics is and see the stark reality of what it causes, right here in these statistics. Children of the ‘great’ nations of US and Great Britain the latter once

heralding“civilization, peace and good government and knowledge of ‘the true God'” (British Parliamentary Papers, 1837) and then little old NZ, now ranking third highest in child poverty!  Here we are in a return to the Dickensian era. And Key has scarpered off to Hawaii to escape the heat. Hanging out no doubt in the $6 mill mansion purchased under his watch while back here we have 40K+ homeless sleeping in cars and garages.

This Unicef paper can be accessed and downloaded via the link provided if you care to read the whole truth. It stems particularly from the 2008 debacle with the economic roulette brigade in Wall Street. That is what they are. Key will remember of course, being a banker and suspected of inside trading with our obscene debt. And having been somewhat involved historically with Wall Street.  Read The Wall Street Gang by Richard Ney. Or The Secret History of the American Empire by John Perkins, especially if you are still of the persuasion the spin doctors are spinning, ‘the economy is stable’.  All that is spinning people is our wheels. These characters are growing richer by the day. Economic recessions, notable people have been telling us for some time now, are scientifically created.

“Under the Federal Reserve Act, panics are scientifically created. The present panic is the first scientific one, worked out as we figure a mathematical equation.” (Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, The Economic Pinch, 1921.)

They are not the result of unknown forces, the lie we’ve been fed for centuries …  the vagaries of ‘the market’. Key and his cronies are by design taxing you 28% and themselves 2.8%. And should you work a second job to feed your family you will be taxed in the vicinity of 33% for that as well. If they had the will to, they could change that and fix poverty overnight. They are relying on your preoccupation with all the bread and circuses they are providing to keep you from knowing what is really going on here.

UNICEF Report

“The data and observations in this Innocenti Report Card reveal a strong and multifaceted relationship between the impact of the Great Recession on national economies and a decline in children’s well-being since 2008. Children are suffering most, and will bear the consequences longest, in countries where the recession has hit hardest.”
