Welcome to the Surveillance State: Biometrics Data Collection is All Around You – “The worldwide digital panopticon isn’t coming – it’s already here. While China has the most surveillance cameras in operation overall, reaching a total of 200 million throughout the country, most people would be shocked to know that the United States has the largest number of surveillance cameras per person than any other country in the world. China may be considered the most advanced in their mass surveillance and control system, but with exports of this technology, regimes around the globe are quickly catching up. In the age of information, “the world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data.”” – The Sharp Edge

Newest Threat to Medical Freedom—Monkeypox “Emergency” – “The World Health Organization declaration of Monkeypox as a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” (PHEIC), was made by one man, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has no medical training, over the objection of the majority of his own expert committee of medical and scientific advisors. Nine of the committee members thought a PHEIC should not be declared and six supported a declaration. “Nine and six is very, very close. Since the role of the committee is to advise, I decided to act as a tie-breaker,” Tedros said in a news conference called to announce the decision.” Perhaps it is the “new math” that leads to the conclusion of a “tie” with a 3-vote majority on one side? And why did Tedros decide to go with the minority opinion rather than the majority?” – Elizabeth Lee Vliet, MD

US Publisher: What if COVID Outbreak is Part of the Pentagon’s Biowarfare Plan? – Ekaterina Blinova

The Steve Kirsch debate about the existence of the virus – “Let me be clear. I’m speaking for myself here, as a reporter who says SARS-CoV-2 doesn’t exist. I’m not speaking for Andrew Kaufman, Stefan Lanka, Tom Cowan, Christine Massey, Sam Bailey, or anyone else who has come to the same conclusion. OK. Steve Kirsch frames the debate (see also here) this way: There are a set of facts about COVID you can lay on the table. Then you decide which hypothesis best explains those facts. In his case, he chooses: “SARS-CoV-2 exists.” This approach is an elementary mistake. I’m not challenging any hypothesis. I’m ATTACKING A STRAIGHT-OUT LABORATORY PROCEDURE.” – Jon Rappoport – GOOD ARTICLE FROM JON!!!!!!

Presidents Kill Because They Can – “What if the purpose of sending nearly $60 billion in cash and military aid to Ukraine is to extend the war Ukraine can only win if American troops become involved? What if the government is giving Ukraine more borrowed federal dollars in six months than Ukraine’s entire annual budget? What if the government wants American troops in this war to take the minds of American voters off the dismal economic, cultural and social mess that America has become? What if American troops are present on the ground in Ukraine today? What if they are out of uniform so that the government has plausible deniability when asked if troops are fighting there? What if troops not in uniform who are captured may be summarily executed as spies? What if the government doesn’t care? What if governments love war?” – Andrew P. Napolitano

When The Just Go to Prison – “When those who expose the crimes of the state are criminalized and sent to prison, tyranny is inevitable. Daniel Hale, dressed in a khaki uniform, his hair cut short and sporting a long, neatly groomed brown beard, is seated behind a plexiglass screen, speaking into a telephone receiver at the federal prison in Marion, Illinois. I hold a receiver on the other side of the plexiglass and listen as he describes his journey from working for the National Security Agency and the Joint Special Operations Task Force at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan to becoming federal prisoner 26069-07. Hale, a 34-year-old former Air Force signals intelligence analyst, is serving a 45 month prison sentence, following his conviction under the Espionage Act for disclosing classified documents about the U.S. military’s drone assassination program and its high civilian death toll. The documents are believed to be the source material for “The Drone Papers” published by The Intercept, on October 15, 2015.” – Chris Hedges

What Happens to the National Debt After Secession? – “But even those willing to entertain the idea of national separation will bring up many practical questions about how such a separation would actually take place. One of the most common questions among these people is: what happens to the government’s debts in case of secession? Fortunately, there are some historical examples that help shed some light on what does happen to debts following national break-ups. In most cases, what happens to the debt comes down to negotiations among successor states.” – Ryan McMaken

The Irish Land War: Cows, Cannabis and Conifer forests – “Now the question to ask yourselves here is: Why Liz Truss? Well, the answer to that question is pretty simple too. The populist revolt and the people at the centre of it still hold sway over the Conservative party. She is the populists choice. I will go one step further and say it’s probably a very good thing she will be their choice as a world with Rishi Sunak as Prime Minister is a guaranteed game, set and match situation to the globalist elites of Wimbledon Lawn Tennis club and the World Economic Forum. I won’t pretend to know much about Liz Truss other than to say many of her critics describe her as uncontrollable and a maverick. Well then, where do we start the Irish story. ” – Gerry O’Neill

China Thoughts – “The most recent flareup between the Global American Empire and China has brought forth all of the usual commentary about the rise of China, its plans for Taiwan and the relative decline of America. The underlying assumption is that China could take Taiwan if it wanted and there is not much the United States can do about it, short of a nuclear strike on mainland China. Further, it is assumed that China will one day make its move on Taiwan when it feels the time is right. This is an odd set of assumptions. If China can take Taiwan and wants to take Taiwan, then why are they not taking Taiwan?” – The Z Man

ECONOMIC NEWS

Here Is What Stagflation Looks Like – “So, yes, consumer spending is just barely in positive territory in real terms, but that’s entirely due to continued increases in household debt. It is only a matter of time, however, until rising interest rates shut-off that avenue of expansion as well. The crazy thing, of course, is that Wall Street now thinks that the Fed’s tightening phase will be over by December and that the battle against inflation has been won, thereby enabling a new round of rate cutting and soaring stock prices. Dream on!” – David Stockman

Bank credit — friend or foe? – “Advocates of sound money place much of the blame for inflation on bank credit. Do away with the creation of bank credit, they say, and the destructive cycle of boom and bust will be cured. But is this solution practical, and is it the real inflation problem? It may be an inconvenient fact, but commodity prices prove to be far more volatile under a fiat currency regime than they ever where under sound money and fluctuations in bank credit.” – Alasdair Macleod

How the Hell Can the Fed Find Neutral When It Doesn’t Know What Inflation Is? – “The Fed wants to set interest rates at a neutral spot defined as the rate that is neither expansionary nor contractionary. The Fed is certain to fail.” – Mish

The Great Recession: Facts vs. Denials – “Once again, the US is facing a recession which Main Street feels, Wall Street whistles past, and DC simply denies. Below, we look at these recessionary forces and delusional policy makers in the context of blunt-speak rather than Fed-speak so that we can best prepare for what’s already felt but rarely spoken from on high.

Food As Currency – “Our nation has been the victim of the slide toward globalism over the last couple of decades. We still retain our independent Dollar, but for how long? The European Union has a unified currency that is a model for the rest of the world. There have been attempts at an Asian currency as well as a North American currency, which was briefly titled the “Amero” and even heralded by a short-lived government website, back around 2007-2008. But there is one thing that unites all humans – the need to eat” – SwampFox
