- No free-market monopoly has ever had a significant impact on society either in prices or wages. Only the government granted monopolies like utilities and central banking have had adverse impacts on society.
- That tariffs and taxes have an adverse impact on society as companies and consumers end up paying higher prices for both goods and services.
- That a central banking system, such as the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States and its member banks does not stop major economic recessions, bank runs and insolvencies/bankruptcies as its proponents promised.
- That social and corporate welfare does not accomplish diminishing poverty and the gap in wage and wealth disparity between the poor and wealthy.
- That scientists cannot access or repair the cumulative effects that cause or benefit Global Warming. We simply do not know all the factors that impact earth’s climate or how much each affects it. We can only try to both access and repair the direct affects humans are having on our planet, like air and water pollution, environmental impact of agriculture and the various forms of flora, fauna and mineral harvesting. As an example, how much adverse effects does mining have on global warming, as compared to the benefits and adverse effects of solar flaring and radiation. Without the sun we cannot live, but solar flaring can cause both increases and decreases in the earth’s temperature and to what degree we can only attempt to measure and hypothesize due to constant change and the unknown factors.
- That the 230+/- Governments and United Nations have done a poor job at solving the many effects humans are negatively impacting the environment. Poor garbage collections and recycling systems and the abundance of garbage found in nature are just a few of the many examples.
- That the mandated social policies of the various government health officials around the world, especially those in the European Union, the WHO and the Americas, did more harm than good in the handling of the Covid-19 outbreak.
- That the monetary costs of providing all these failed social policies are bankrupting both the governments and the majorities within many of the political jurisdictions, like Illinois, New York, Michigan and the Federal Government.
- That the social costs of the vast levels of force and coercion that are required, and that occur because of the collection and redistribution of wealth, are having massive deleterious effects on our society, both psychologically and sociologically. The levels of discontentment and conflict caused by the numerous factors in this document, in addition to others, has never been higher in at least 75 years. Many social problems such suicides, overdoes, crime, rebellion, incarcerations, government prosecutions, government corruption and manipulations, poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, starvation and many diseases are at or near all-time highs like diabetes and cancer.
- That it’s NOT the free-market capitalist system that has caused all these problems, when it is clear, that as the government has grown in size, costs, and scope of almost unlimited powers over the 20th and now 21st centuries, we have diminished in most of the social and economic categories the government is responsible for and many others the social engineers have caused. Our money is not even free market derived any more, causing massive levels of inflation, thanks to the government and central banking system. We have over 150 taxes and regulatory fee, diminishing the output and prosperity of the civilian population, while benefiting primarily the bureaucracy and government contractors. That is fascism Comrades, when a large percentage of the massive annual Federal budget of over $5.5 trillion goes to various commercial interests such as the military industrial complex to support the military and police state apparatus, Big Pharma, Big Chemical, Big Oil and Big Agriculture. Fascism: when State and private monetary interests merge and collude to control the vast network of commercial and social assets and the means of production. – In a true free market capitalist system, there would be a few and low taxes, governments would be small with very limited powers and the markets would dictate interest rates, the amount of money in circulation and loan underwriting standards, not central banks, member banks and the government.
The Martyred President
This is a famous sermon by the Rev. Charles Robinson, who just happens to be an ancestor, in 1865 memorializing Abraham Lincoln after his assassination.
The reason, however, I published the sermon is because of its illumination of the Venetian Conspirators noted in the 1st paragraph on page 4. (see below) He was a beautiful author and wordsmith, better than most I’ve heard and I see why he was so popular in his day.
I also attached this link to a website full of conspiratorial information, some known to be historically true, on the period of the Venetian Conspirators and the reason why I published the sermon. If they knew about this back in 1865, why does so few know of it today? https://exploringrealhistory.blogspot.com/2019/03/part-1-venetian-conspiracy.html
Open Debate and Transparency; exposing the faux media
It is self evident that open debate, transparency, and freedom of speech are key components within the confines of a democratic republic and a civil society. Yet, despite the ease of allowing both, there are so many institutions, including academia, social media, MSM, government organizations and corporations, that discourage them.
Many entities do not have or allow a comment section, they Censor, Deplatform, Demonetize (C, D or D) and these practices have become commonplace. There is one other category that is interesting. They have a comment section but the comment section is “closed” allowing no additional comments. Those, I place in the Censorship category.
As we continue down the path of greater technological involvement in media, censorship and ostracism are rearing their ugly heads, no longer able to hide from we the people so we must expose them.
Every single website creation platform has a plethora of templates and simple mechanisms for allowing a comment section, yet so many eliminate this ability. The fact that those that do this, are many of the ones that should be the most transparent and open to debate is of a particular interest. That many of these same entities somehow end up at the top of the various search engines results is even more intriguing. Of course, if you find something about any of these entities that contradicts the classification, let us know.
I’ve started this list in order to expose those wishing to censor and/or not be fact checked. It should be noted that some of the smaller organizations I’ve spoken while trying to get them to implement a comment section often say they do not have the manpower to monitor and participate in a comment section. We must at least try and do our best.
No comment section C, D, or D No C, D, or D w/comments

Rules of Engagement: If a person is simply posting irrelevant name calling, adding nothing to a debate, blocking them or deleting their comments is potentially justifiable. Whereas, calling someone a criminal with supporting evidence would be acceptable, so one’s ability to make reasonable arguments is extremely important, even if you disagree. Sadly, there are those who wish to discourage the truth from becoming known for personal gain or to protect themselves from prosecution, and thus who these people are and which organizations they work for is part of the rationale for creating this page. It should also be noted that how easy it is to address, rectify or find out the reason(s) and cure the reason for censorship, should also be taken into consideration when dealing with these issues. Some sites will not even respond or provide a reasonable dispute and petition methodology. **Only Academics with institutional email can write or comment – appears Marxist leaning based on academic government grants and overall content. As the only current administrator of the page, which will increase over time, I will do my best to mitigate any disagreements among the posters who choose to participate and will surely call on the advice and knowledge of others, so don’t fear, that I will become the “all mighty” final arbiter in all things truthful. I enjoy telling the truth and exposing the lies to much, to be a minion or lackey of the Fasci.
In Plain Sight
From the Below Report:
“Cost of Sales: Cost of sales was $1.9 billion, or 39% of product sales, for the fourth quarter of 2022, including third-party royalties of $604 million, of which $400 million related to a catch-up payment to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) for a new royalty-bearing license agreement executed in December. The agreement provides for low single-digit royalties on future COVID-19 vaccine sales. Cost of sales, as a percentage of product sales, increased by 25 percentage points, from 14% in the same period in 2021.”
This is a great example of how fascism works. The top 6 or 7 of Moderna’s shareholders all became billionaires in 2021 as the highest increase in reported vaccines deaths and injuries occurred in the history of VAERS. Other then their mRNA vaccine and boosters, they have never brought another product to market.

Company R&D investments planned to increase to $4.5 billion in 2023
CAMBRIDGE, MA / ACCESSWIRE / February 23, 2023 / Moderna, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRNA), a biotechnology company pioneering messenger RNA (mRNA) therapeutics and vaccines, today reported financial results and provided business updates for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2022.
“2022 was another impressive year for Moderna, with over $19 billion in revenue and significant clinical breakthroughs across our portfolio. We continue to provide our Omicron-targeting bivalent vaccines worldwide, with the latest real-world evidence highlighting the continued protection of our vaccines against hospitalization and death,” said Stéphane Bancel, Chief Executive Officer of Moderna. “Our infectious disease platform continues to progress with positive Phase 3 data in RSV for older adults. We are investing to scale Phase 3 manufacturing for personalized cancer vaccines so that we can run several Phase 3 studies simultaneously. With planned R&D investments of $4.5 billion for the year, I am excited about the new medicines we believe we will bring to patients in the coming few years.”
Moderna is also announcing that Juan Andres, currently President, Strategic Partnerships and Enterprise Expansion, will be retiring from the Company in May after more than six years.
“Juan has played a tremendous role since joining Moderna in 2017. Juan served as Chief Technical Operations and Quality Officer and led our manufacturing from an early-stage clinical development company to a commercial company. In 2020 and 2021, Juan did a historic job with his team to scale Moderna for a global commercial launch, during a pandemic. It is unbelievable that he led the team from having made less than 100,000 doses across our entire portfolio in 2019 to more than 800 million doses in 2021 of our COVID-19 vaccine globally, all during a pandemic,” said Mr. Bancel. “Very few manufacturing leaders could have led such an achievement during such a challenging time. We, and the hundreds of millions of people across the globe who received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, owe Juan our gratitude.”
Recent Progress Includes:
Approved and Phase 3 trials
- Spikevax Bivalent BA.4/BA.5 authorized under EUA in the U.S. as a booster dose for all age groups from 5 months.
- RSV vaccine in older adults (mRNA-1345) met its primary efficacy endpoint and received Breakthrough Therapy Designation from FDA. mRNA-1345 demonstrated vaccine efficacy of 83.7% against RSV lower respiratory tract disease, defined by 2 or more symptoms, and 82.4% with 3 or more symptoms in older adults. mRNA-1345 was generally well-tolerated, with no safety concerns identified by the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB). Based on these results, Moderna expects to submit a Biologics License Application (BLA) for mRNA-1345 to the FDA in the first half of 2023. The pediatric Phase 1 trial of mRNA-1345 is fully enrolled.
- Flu (mRNA-1010) interim analysis from Phase 3 immunogenicity and safety trial demonstrated mRNA-1010 achieved superiority on seroconversion rates for A/H3N2 and A/H1N1, superiority on geometric mean titer ratios for A/H3N2, and non-inferiority on geometric mean titer ratios for A/H1N1. Non-inferiority was not met for seroconversion rates, and geometric mean titer ratios for the influenza B/Victoria- and B/Yamagata-lineage strains. mRNA-1010 was found to be generally well-tolerated.
- The ongoing mRNA-1010 Phase 3 efficacy study (P302) conducted in the Northern Hemisphere has accrued more than 200 PCR-confirmed cases. The first per-protocol interim analysis of efficacy is expected to be reviewed by an independent DSMB before the end of the first quarter.
Phase 3 trials
- CMV vaccine (mRNA-1647) pivotal Phase 3 study, known as CMVictory, is ongoing, with enrollment more than 40% complete. CMV vaccine candidate mRNA-1647 adolescent trial dosed its first participants.
- First participants, adults 50 years of age or older, dosed in Phase 1/2 trial of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) candidate mRNA-1468. VZV causes chickenpox, commonly affecting children and young adults, and shingles in adults.
- Personalized cancer vaccine (PCV) Phase 2 evaluating mRNA-4157/V940 in combination with KEYTRUDA®, Merck’s anti-PD-1 therapy, as adjuvant treatment for patients with high-risk melanoma reported positive topline data, showing a 44% reduction of recurrence or death versus Keytruda alone.
- The companies have received Breakthrough Therapy Designation for mRNA-4157/V940.
- As previously announced on October 12, Merck exercised its option to jointly develop and commercialize mRNA-4157/V940 pursuant to the terms of its existing Collaboration and License Agreement, and Moderna received $250 million from Merck in the fourth quarter in connection with the option exercise. The companies plan to discuss results with regulatory authorities, initiate a Phase 3 study in adjuvant melanoma in 2023, and rapidly expand to additional tumor types, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
- The Phase 1/2 Paramount study of propionic acidemia (PA) candidate (mRNA-3927) is enrolling patients in cohort 5 (0.9mg/kg). Encouraging clinical benefit has been observed to date and all eligible participants continue to opt-in to the Open Label Expansion. Next step is dose selection for the expansion arm of the Phase 1/2 study.
- Moderna’s partner, Vertex, initiated Phase 1 trial for VX-522, an mRNA therapy targeted at treating the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease for those who cannot benefit from a cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulator. VX-522 is Moderna’s first inhaled mRNA to enter the clinic.
- Phase 1B trial of heart failure treatment candidate, mRNA-0184 was initiated. mRNA-0184 is designed to produce the naturally occurring cardioprotective hormone relaxin.
Moderna now has 48 programs 1 in development across 45 development candidates, of which 38 are currently in active clinical trials. The Company’s updated pipeline can be found at www.modernatx.com/pipeline. Moderna and collaborators have published more than 140 peer-reviewed publications.
Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial Results
Revenue: Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $5.1 billion, compared to $7.2 billion in the same period in 2021, mainly due to a decrease in sales of the Company’s COVID-19 vaccines. Product sales for the fourth quarter of 2022 were $4.9 billion, a decrease of 30% compared to the same period in 2021, primarily driven by lower sales volume, compared to overall higher demand in the prior year and the related manufacturing ramp up in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Cost of Sales: Cost of sales was $1.9 billion, or 39% of product sales, for the fourth quarter of 2022, including third-party royalties of $604 million, of which $400 million related to a catch-up payment to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) for a new royalty-bearing license agreement executed in December. The agreement provides for low single-digit royalties on future COVID-19 vaccine sales. Cost of sales, as a percentage of product sales, increased by 25 percentage points, from 14% in the same period in 2021. The increase was driven by increased royalties, a charge of $297 million for inventory write-downs related to COVID-19 products that have exceeded or are expected to exceed their approved shelf-lives prior to being used, a loss on firm purchase commitments and related cancellation charges of $281 million, and an expense for unutilized manufacturing capacity and related contract manufacturing organization charges of $376 million. These charges, other than royalties, are driven by costs associated with surplus production capacity, overall lower demand and a shift to our most recent Omicron-targeting COVID-19 bivalent booster, mRNA-1273.222
Research and Development Expenses: Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2022 increased by 87% to $1.2 billion, in comparison to the same quarter of 2021. The growth in spending was mainly due to an increase in clinical trial-related expenses, largely driven by increased clinical development activities, particularly with respect to our RSV, seasonal flu and CMV programs. The growth was also driven by the acquisition of a Priority Review Voucher and an increase in personnel-related costs due to increased headcount to support our increased research and development efforts.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2022 increased by 87% to $375 million, in comparison to the same quarter of 2021. The growth in spending was primarily due to increased external and marketing spend, driven by commercial activities in support of the Company’s marketed products and build-out.
Effective Tax Rate: The effective tax rate was 11% for the fourth quarter of 2022, remained relatively flat, compared to 10% for the same period in 2021.
Net Income: Net income decreased by 70% to $1.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to the same period in 2021.
Earnings Per Share: Diluted EPS decreased by 68% to $3.61 in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to the same period in 2021.
Full Year 2022
Revenue: Total revenue was $19.3 billion for the full year 2022, compared to $18.5 billion in 2021. Total revenue increased in 2022, primarily due to increased sales of the Company’s COVID-19 vaccines. Product sales for 2022 were $18.4 billion, an increase of 4%, compared to 2021, primarily driven by a higher average selling price due to customer mix.
Cost of Sales: Cost of sales was $5.4 billion, or 29% of the product sales for 2022, including third-party royalties of $1.1 billion. Cost of sales, as a percentage of product sales, increased by 14 percentage points, from 15% in 2021. The increase was mainly due to a charge of $1.3 billion for inventory write-downs related to COVID-19 products that have exceeded or are expected to exceed their approved shelf-lives prior to being used, a loss on firm purchase commitments and related cancellation charges of $725 million, and an expense for unutilized manufacturing capacity and related contract manufacturing organization charges of $776 million. These charges are driven by overall lower demand, in particular from low-income countries, a shift in product demand to our Omicron-targeting COVID-19 bivalent boosters and costs associated with surplus production capacity.
Research and Development Expenses: Research and development expenses increased by 65% to $3.3 billion for 2022, compared to 2021. The growth in spending in 2022 was mainly due to increases in clinical trial expenses, clinical manufacturing expenses, personnel-related costs, and consulting and outside services, largely driven by the Company’s late-stage clinical studies for the RSV, seasonal flu and CMV vaccine programs, as well as continued development of the Company’s pipeline.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 100% to $1.1 billion for 2022, compared to 2021. The growth in spending in 2022 was mainly due to increases in consulting and outside services, marketing expense, and personnel-related costs, primarily attributable to the Company’s continued corporate expansion, particularly in the commercial area and to a lesser extent, in support functions.
Provision for Income Taxes: The effective tax rate was 13% for 2022, compared to 8% for 2021. The increase in 2022 was primarily due to the benefit recorded in 2021 related to the release of the valuation allowance on the majority of our deferred tax assets.
Net Income: Net income decreased by 31% to $8.4 billion for the full year 2022, compared to 2021.
Earnings Per Share: Diluted EPS decreased by 29% to $20.12 for the full year 2022, compared to 2021.
Cash Position: Cash, cash equivalents and investments as of December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 were $18.2 billion and $17.6 billion, respectively.
Net Cash Provided By Operating Activities: Net cash provided by operating activities was $5.0 billion for the full year 2022, compared to $13.6 billion for the same period in 2021. Net cash provided by operating activities decreased in 2022, primarily attributable to revenue recognized from deferred revenue in excess of customer deposits received and increased income tax payments, partially offset by higher collection of receivables.
Cash Used for Purchases of Property, Plant and Equipment: Cash used for purchases of property and equipment was $400 million for the full year 2022, compared to $284 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily driven by the Company’s continued business expansion of its manufacturing and research facilities.
Cash Used for Repurchases of Common Stock: Cash used for repurchases of common stock was $3.3 billion for the full year 2022. Moderna did not conduct share repurchases prior to the fourth quarter of 2021. From the end of the third quarter of 2021 to the end of the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 27 million shares, reducing the number of common shares outstanding from 405 million to 385 million, more than offsetting 7 million shares of common stock issued in connection with equity compensation over this period.
2023 Financial Framework
Advance Purchase Agreements (APAs): The Company has COVID vaccine sales of approximately $5 billion currently contracted for 2023 delivery, with potential additional sales opportunities in the United States (endemic private and government markets), Europe, Japan, and other key markets. The Company expects product sales in the first half of 2023 of approximately $2.0 billion.
Cost of Sales: Cost of sales for the full year are expected to be in the range of 35-40% of sales, which includes approximately 5% of sales for combined royalties to Cellscript and NIAID.
Research & Development (R&D) and Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) Expenses : Full-year expenses are expected to be approximately $6.0 billion, with approximately $4.5 billion in R&D.
Income Tax Provision: The Company expects a negligible provision for income taxes in 2023.
Capital Expenditures: The Company expects capital investments for 2023 of approximately $1.0 billion.
Share Repurchase Program
The $3 billion share repurchase program announced in February 2022 was completed early in the fourth quarter 2022. The Company has commenced repurchases from the additional $3 billion program announced in August 2022, and currently has $2.8 billion remaining under this latest authorization.

Open Debate and Transparency
It is surely self evident that open debate, transparency, and freedom of speech are key components within the realms of government to advance a civil society. Yet, in today’s world, despite the ease of allowing them, there are so many entities, from Academia to Social Media and Governments and NGOs, that are currently discouraging them. Some do not even have a Comment section, and Censorship, De-platforming and Demonetizing (C, D or D) have become common occurrences.
Every single website creation platform has a plethora of templates and simply mechanisms for allowing a comment section, yet so many eliminate this ability. The fact that those that do this, are many of the ones that should be the most transparent and open to debate is of a particular interest. That many of these same entities somehow end up at the top of the various search engines results is even more intriguing. Of course, if you find something about any of these entities that contradicts the classification, let us know.
I’ve created this, and it can easily be expanded in order to expose those wishing to deny and tell the truth. Please help fill out these lists. by send me those entities you find to be either liars or telling the truth: email@example.com

Healthy humans ‘harbor an average of five viruses’
It is well established that our bodies possess gut bacteria that is beneficial for health. Now, researchers from Washington University in St. Louis, MO, have found that our bodies are also home to an average of five viruses responsible for numerous illnesses, although it is unclear whether they have positive or negative implications for health.
“Most everyone is familiar with the idea that a normal bacterial flora exists in the body,” says study co-author Dr. Gregory Storch, a virologist and chief of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the university. “Lots of people have asked whether there is a viral counterpart, and we haven’t had a clear answer. But now we know there is a normal viral flora, and it’s rich and complex.”
The findings, which form a part of the Human Microbiome Project funded by the National Institutes of Health, were recently published in the journal BMC Biology.
The research team, led by Kristine M. Wylie, PhD, an instructor of pediatrics at the university, collected 706 samples of bodily fluids from 102 healthy adults aged 18-40. The samples were taken from participants’ nose, skin, mouth, vagina and stools.
All participants were closely screened to ensure they had no viral infections, and they were eliminated from the study if they had had been diagnosed with human papillomavirus (HPV) in the past 2 years, or had a form of active genital herpes in the last 2 months.
For each sample, the researchers used high-throughput DNA sequencing that enabled them to detect a wide range of viruses.
Seven families of viruses identified, including HPV and herpesvirus
Among 92% of participants, at least one virus was detected, with some participants harboring around 10-15 viruses. On average, each participant harbored five viruses. The researchers say they were surprised to find so many. “We only sampled up to five body sites in each person and would expect to see many more viruses if we had sampled the entire body,” says Wylie.
From the samples, the team detected seven families of viruses. These included viruses responsible for non-sexually transmitted herpes – herpesvirus 6 and 7. These viruses were detected among 98% of participants who were sampled from the mouth.
Strains of HPV were found in around 75% of skin samples and 50% of nose samples, while new strains of the virus were found in both skin and nose samples. Around 38% of female participants had HPV strains in vagina samples, with many of these harboring strains associated with increased risk of cervical cancer, such as HPV 16 and HPV 18.
The researchers also identified adenoviruses – responsible for pneumonia and the common cold – in the majority of samples.
It is possible, the researchers note, that the viruses identified were lurking infections from years before. But Wylie says that dormant viruses usually reside in cells rather than bodily fluids, which is where the viruses were found in this study.
Commenting on their findings, the team says:
“This study is the first to use high-throughput DNA sequencing to describe the diversity of eukaryotic DNA viruses in a large cohort of individuals who were sampled at multiple body sites. This analysis demonstrates that there is a ‘normal viral flora’ in generally healthy, asymptomatic individuals.”
They admit that it is unclear as to whether the viruses are beneficial or detrimental to health, but they hypothesize that the viruses may boost the immune system’s response to harmful pathogens in some cases, while increasing the risk of infection in others.
“It’s very important to know what viruses are present in a person without causing a problem and what viruses could be responsible for serious illnesses that need medical attention,” says Dr. Storch. “While more research remains, we now have a much clearer picture of the communities of viruses that naturally exist in healthy people.”
Medical News Today recently reported on a study claiming viruses can spread to 40-60% of a building and its occupants within 2-4 hours.

The Fix – COIN-SOG
Press Release 08/31/2022
COUNTER INSURGENCY STUDIES & OBSERVATION GROUP (COIN-SOG)
IT REALLY IS TREASON & COIN-SOG “HAS” THE FIX; A COUNTER INSURGENCY”
Think of it as a way of stopping the criminality, corruption and various usurpations of rights and property by those within the government, and removing those complicit through lawful means. How much more of there greed and corruption can the average person take?
We at COIN-SOG, have been steadfastly against the potential bloodletting of a civil war or even attempting to overrun or overthrow any of the local, States or Federal government bodies. We are seeking to conduct a lawful counter-insurgency (COIN) to route out those criminal elements (Insurgents) embedded within the Federal, State and local governments. We’ve lawfully served, via Notices of Misprision of Treason (Notices), the Congressional and Senatorial overseers of Appropriations, “that funds be made available, for conducting a counter-insurgency (COIN) under the rules of necessity, delegated authority of the provisions of the Bill of Rights, under Sections 3 (insurrection clause) and Section 4 (bounty clause) of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America, a Republic”. As expected, those usurpers embedded within the central government, ignored this request, as we suspected they would, since they are a potential target. The precedence for the use of public funds for a Section 3 (counter insurgency) is well grounded, in both post-civil war tribunals and the more recent WARS on Drugs & Terrorism.
REF: Those Officials, who should be responsible for putting down the insurrection from within have been served the Notices. They are the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Richard Shelby via U.S.P.S CERT # 7020 0090 0001 5743 3481 delivered on 16 SEPT 2020 and the Chairwoman of the U.S. House Appropriations Committee, Congresswoman Nita Lowery via U.S.P.S CERT. # 7020 0090 0001 5743 3474 delivered on 16 SEPT 2020
NOTE: The UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (US-DOD) Dictionary defines a counter-insurgency (COIN), as a US military and/or civilian military function. There is no reference to “PUBLIC” because it is government that operates solely within a “PUBLIC CAPACITY”, and it is those within the government, at the Federal, State, and local jurisdictions who are targeted for violations of their “Oaths of Office” under provisions of Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment.
The American civilian population AKA: “the people”, find themselves in the middle of an overthrow of their “duly constituted Republic” from without and within the halls “of what was once their government”, exacted by globalist antagonists and traitors, embedded within most every government body across the United States of America and beyond to include the United Nations.
The time has come, for the American civilian population, to stand and defend the pre-existing natural (for many God given) rights of self-defense along with freedoms and liberties for their, loved ones, friends and themselves, sheltered within the “Bill of Rights” and other founding documents of the duly constituted Republic. Failure to do so, will result in falling forever “that comes after the current culling of the global population”, into perpetual economic enslavement exacted by wealthy globalists and the traitors embedded within the United States of America, “a Republic”.
FACT: Nowhere within the founding documents, can you find anything whatsoever, that allows for anyone whatsoever, who operate within a “PUBLIC CAPACITY” to force compliance to the unconstitutional “rule of law”, or tax your labor, promote, act or legislate or otherwise disarm the people themselves, and/or move the nation and its civilian population into a GREAT RESET and NEW WORLD ORDER, and to do so is insurrection and treason.
There is however, Section 3 (insurrection clause) of the 14th Amendment, to the Constitution for the United States of America, that addresses the offenses of infringement, insurrection and treason by those operating within a PUBLIC CAPACITY and it is of the utmost importance, that all Americans understand this. NO, the insurrection clause, is not just a post-civil war provision, as some would have you believe.
The fielding of numerous un-constitutional police state enforcement entities and their activities, is treason.
THE MOST TELLING EVIDENCE OF TREASON: Nowhere within the text of the 2nd Amendment, can one find the phrase, “but in a manner to be prescribed by law”, this my fellow Americans, means any law whatsoever, that prohibits, restricts, limits, requires a permit, tax stamp, or otherwise prohibiting preexisting rights and provisions of the 2nd Amendment, “amounts to an infringement which in of itself is insurrection”. When there are two (2) or more actors to the same insurrection, it becomes an act of treason.
IT IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE: For all Americans to understand the difference between “PUBLIC & PRIVATE CAPACITY”. This way, you know when some elected Official or bureaucrat is attempting to mislead people, when using the phrase PUBLIC SAFETY” as they promote violating you human and constitutional rights “while violating their Oaths of Office, to do so”.
The UNITED STATES, the STATES, and LOCAL GOVERNMENT bodies, COURTS and their MILITARY, PARA-MILITARIES AKA: POLICE, all operate solely within a “PUBLIC CAPACITY” AKA: PUBLIC SERVANTS. Perhaps, some of you noticed, the police refer to “We the People” as civilians.
American CIVILIANS, aka: the people themselves, operate solely within a “PRIVATE CAPACITY”.
So, now you know the truth, that when someone is operating within a PUBLIC capacity, claims they need to restrict, prohibit provisions to the 2nd Amendment for “PUBLIC SAFETY”, what the usurpers in government actually mean is “THEIR SAFETY…not the safety of the civilian population” (emphasis added).
WE CANNOT OVER EMPHASIS THE FOLLOWING: Public Officials, employees and corporate municipal paramilitaries (AKA: Police) are required to affirm, pledge or swear to an Oath to protect, support and defend the Constitution for the United States of America (USA). Any, offense by the aforementioned “PUBLIC” of attacking the natural rights of self-defense, and provisions of the 2nd Amendment, amounts to “violating their Oath of Office to engage in an act of insurrection, again, when there are two (2) or more actors to the same insurrection, it becomes an act of treason”.
Whereas, any use of public funds to deny the power of the Constitution is defined as insurrection, when there are two or more actors to the same insurrection it becomes an act of treason. REF: In re Charge to Grand Jury, N.D. ILL. (1894), 62 F. 828
FACT: There is no requirement for recall or impeachment of those who violate their Oath of Office. However, when they are charged, they are to be jailed to await a “military or civilian military tribunal” and their assets seized to pay for bounties, REF: “bounty clause”. Upon conviction and the sentence is handed down, the convicted shall not ever again, hold any office of public trust. Those outside government bodies, who conspire, aid and abet the aforementioned insurgents, face the same punishments by the tribunal, “GET IT”?
The only real achievable choice, for “We the People” is to stand against usurpers, infringers, insurgents and their treasonous actions, embedded within government bodies at all levels, or fall forever to the globalist financial RESET and NEW WORLD ORDER.
Qualified COUNTER INSURGENCY (COIN) OPERATIVES…who have affirmed, pledged, or swore to an Oath to defend the Constitution for the United States of America (USA) as a Republic, against all enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC, will accrue the traditional counter insurgent paygrade of Colonel (0-6) @ $7,332.00 monthly, supplemented by bounties, when the insurrection within co-opted government bodies is declared “put down”, counter insurgents will receive full veterans benefits and half (0-6) pay for life.
The War To End All Wars
The War To End All Wars was the call of the war mongers and their bankers, during WWI in order to coerce the Citizens of the United States into entering the war, with the allowance of the sinking of the Lusitania when entering German submarine waters, unescorted, as the final rationale. War is always about financial slavery and profit, not the great lie of social civility. The use of government armies/navies to improve humanity, is simply a grand scheme to swindle and improve the corporate profits of the super wealthy and their minions. Taxation, financial or physical slavery and conscription have long been their favorite ploys going as far back as there is written history. The best story of their deviousness is the story of the infamous clansman John D. Rockefeller and his “charitable” foundation, responsible for the deaths of literally millions of people around the world.
At the ripe old age of 23, John D. Rockefeller, the future robber baron and America’s wealthiest man, started his first transportation company to sell goods to the Federal Government to supply the Union Army during the American Civil War. He also had enough money to be able to pay a “Substitute’ to be conscripted, the unconstitutional use of involuntary servitude by those in power. The war was so unpopular both sides had to enact conscription laws and yet both sides allowed their wealthy to sit on the sidelines via substitution laws, out of harm’s way, to profit from the war. Approximately 500,000 mostly men, of all races, lost their lives and thousands permanently injured. How can it be that America was the only nation in the world to fight a civil war “allegedly” over slavery and saving the republic. Now you know the truth. All the other governments simply enacted legislation abolishing slavery and the U.S. had already abolished the importation of slaves, obviously angering the very clansmen who controlled the Atlantic Slave Trade.
This is something the ruling classes “gatekeepers” as some call them, journalists and government propagandists, do not want the majority to know. The facts that Rockefeller had the money at this age, was able to secure such a government contract and was a large supporter and contributor to the Republican Party who backed Lincoln and the war, should be illuminating for many.
The moral of the story is that the Modus Operandi (MO) of the clan has always been to sell goods and services to the ignorant taxpayers, and they will force us to fight and kill one another if necessary. From vaccines to voting machines to prison telephone systems to nuclear submarines and obviously, they care not what happens to the majority as their money and lives are taken/stolen from them. We are merely slaves of their deviousness, immorality and greed.
Oh, but there is more. The Rockefeller Foundation also financially supported the research of experimental vaccines before and during WWI, inoculating military personnel in all the major nations of the world, who spread the diseases through what is called shedding, our bodies defense mechanism of trying to excrete foreign matter and pathogens, causing their deaths and those they came into contact with. Even though the first case and death from the “Spanish Flu” occurred in Ft. Riley, Kansas, with those who had been inoculated with the experimental vaccine, both government officials and the MSM around the world lied to their people calling it the Spanish Flu. They inoculated the young men and women, at induction in all the countries involved on both sides of the war, sending millions to their deaths around the world, with the very pathogens used in their experiments; human beings used as guinea pigs. More American military personnel died from the influenza, then at the hands of the Axis forces, many of them dying before leaving the United States.
There is no real moral to these stories, only the immorality by those who ignorantly acquiesce and are fooled by the deviants, continuing to allow these actions to continue. When I hear people thank me for my service, when they find out I was drafted during the Vietnam War, causing well over 150,000 young men to needlessly die for increased profits of the military industrial complex and politicians, it sickens me. When is it going to sicken everyone?

Slavery by Governments; defeating fascism
The abolition of physical bondage and ownership of another human being throughout much of the world is arguably one of the greatest achievements in human history, which had occurred for a very very long time.
Interestingly enough, when you put history in the correct perspective, it was the white Anglos and Celtic cultures that spearheaded the anti-slavery movement and its eventual abolition worldwide. Of course, the Africans and other fighters of liberty from every other culture joined in, but they also had their oppressive governments to deal with just like the Colonists had the British Crown and other monarchies like the French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Germans and many others throughout the world to deal with. The Africans had numerous Tribes that had long been involved in slavery and the slave trade. At that time there were very few societies, that did not partake in slavery but in the late 1800s that all started to change.
Our founding fathers had to deal with the various monarchies of the world because it wasn’t until the 1900s that many of those monarchies were finally overthrown. The French, under Napoleon even helped us win the war against the British Crown who had even hired mercenaries from Germany’s Monarchy. The Monarchies often worked together to defeat societies like the Irish Celts who had abolished their government and slavery throughout their lands from approx. 650 AD to 1625 AD before being overthrown.
“King James II and Charles I also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next-door neighbor. http://www.aohflorida.org/the-irish-slave-trade/ – The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.”
When one thinks about how long slavery was promoted by the various governments and tribes like the Romans, Egyptians, Africans, Chinese, Japanese, etc., what the white Anglos fighting against government oppression did, starting with the Magna Carta in 1215 and eventually defeating the British, French, Dutch and German Monarchies which taught others, they too could also defeat their governments around the world, was one of the great achievements in human history and many lost their lives doing it.
My own forefathers had even helped to constitutionally abolished slavery in Vermont in 1777 and fought at Saratoga, and Ft. Ticonderoga, considered “Turning Points” in the American Revolution. It’s just like the separatists, eventually called the Pilgrims, who escaped England to first Holland and then America. They were fighting against both the Church and Crown, so it was as much against the religious persecution as against totalitarian government who use the church and law as a means of physical and monetary slavery.
Any law the takes away a right to property or activities, such as taxes, regulatory fees, fines and penalties, based on malum prohibitum laws are fascist in nature. It’s not that any single malum prohibitum law causes that much social harm, compared to the benefits, it’s the plethora of them that has bankrupted and corrupted every society in history, as it is doing to the U.S. and many others around the world today. https://www.merriam-webster.com/legal/malum%20prohibitum – Malum Prohibitum defined.
Within approximately 70 years after the defeat of the British Crown and the eventual defeat of most of the other European, Asian and Arab Monarchies, slavery was defeated throughout much of the world and it took all the races of the world to defeat it. Blaming one race or another when it was the governments and tribal leaders in collusion with some of the wealthiest commercial interests in the world continuing this dehumanizing practice, is just pure ignorance.
Now, once again, due to all our ignorance, our world is again enslaved, just monetarily. As an example, in the U.S. we have over 120 different taxes and regulatory fees, enacted by the heirs and cronies of the very same old wealthy monetary interests that used physical slavery to increase their profits and wealth. Who do you think is inducing the various bureaucracies to enact all these Malum Prohibitum laws, taxes, fees, fines, and penalties? Understanding fascism; the merger of State and Corporate powers, who together are usurping the rights to property ownership and the fruits of our labor, of especially the civilian populations is a key to understanding the differences between good laws and bad ones. How well do you really understand the differences?
The Erroneous Concept of Race; deceptive in its origin
Race is and always has been a human construct erroneously defined and used by disinformation creators within the various statist movements to divide, concur and control their adversaries. The truth is that most of the people of the world are a mixture of many hereditary lines going back hundreds of thousands of years. Those who lived nearer the equator were often darker and those living in the colder climates were lighter. We basically developed our skin colors to cope with the effects of the environment.
We have been taught that race is real and proven by scientific fact, when it is not. It is most often a tool of those who wish to deceive or those who have been deceived.
Thinking that the mainstream, a/k/a corporate owned media companies are not a major portion of social media today, is also an erroneous construct. They and their factcheckers are often the worst purpetrators of misinformation and disinformation, a/k/a propaganda on the world wide web (www) because it is intentional and meticulously planned and executed. They most often project the will of their advertisers, who are some of the largest and most powerful commercial interests in the world.
“Fake news is intentionally-spread misinformation that is in the format of news. Recent incidents reveal that fake news can be used as propaganda and get viral through news media and social media [39; 38].” – see study below.
Consider that Fascism is the merger of state and corporate powers. They will take over our lives if we let them and they will and have used every trick and malicious tactic in the book to accomplish their domination and controls.
From Wikipedia: Defining Race
Modern scholarship views racial categories as socially constructed, that is, race is not intrinsic to human beings but rather an identity created, often by socially dominant groups, to establish meaning in a social context. Different cultures define different racial groups, often focused on the largest groups of social relevance, and these definitions can change over time.
- In South Africa, the Population Registration Act, 1950 recognized only White, Black, and Coloured, with Indians added later.
- The government of Myanmar recognizes eight “major national ethnic races“.
- The Brazilian census classifies people into brancos (Whites), pardos (multiracial), pretos (Blacks), amarelos (Asians), and indigenous (see Race and ethnicity in Brazil), though many people use different terms to identify themselves.
- The United States Census Bureau proposed but then withdrew plans to add a new category to classify Middle Eastern and North African peoples in the U.S. Census 2020, over a dispute over whether this classification should be considered a white ethnicity or a separate race.
- Legal definitions of whiteness in the United States used before the civil rights movement were often challenged for specific groups.
- Historical race concepts have included a wide variety of schemes to divide local or worldwide populations into races and sub-races.
The establishment of racial boundaries often involves the subjugation of groups defined as racially inferior, as in the one-drop rule used in the 19th-century United States to exclude those with any amount of African ancestry from the dominant racial grouping, defined as “white“. Such racial identities reflect the cultural attitudes of imperial powers dominant during the age of European colonial expansion. This view rejects the notion that race is biologically defined.
Oppression by the ideological theory of fascism has occurs throughout history in many nations and by every ill-conceived notion of how race is even defined. Thinking it is only the Caucasians doing this is pure ignorance and most often an erroneous construct of those perceived to be in the minority who ignorantly choose to blame those in the majority on their skin color, religion, culture or national origin, or even tribal affiliations.
Blacks and Asian nations can and have been just as oppressive against their own people including slavery, torture and murder to gain power, money and privilege, as the most brutal of Caucasian controlled nations. Thus, we are all to blame for allowing fascism to deceive and manipulate us.
“1, there are several similar terms that may easily get confused with misinformation. For example, disinformation also refers to inaccurate information which is usually distinguished from misinformation by the intention of deception, fake news refers to false information in the form of news (which is not necessarily disinformation since it may be unintentionally shared by innocent users), rumor refers to unverified information that can be either true or false, and spam refers to irrelevant information that is sent to a large number of users”
Socialist/Fascists Jews, a/k/a (Zionists) in History: Tricks and Treachery
I made this list initially to organize all those historically that were or are considered to be “socialist” Jews in an attempt to either expose or exonerate the Zionist movement. There are many Jews opposed to Zionism, so get the thought of anti-Semitism out of you mind. This isn’t about the Jewish culture or religion, it’s about Zionism and their use of democratic socialism to steal the wealth from the majority. Feel free to send additional known Zionists to this list by sending it in an email or comment, as it is much much longer than most realize. Just remember, it is important to associate them with either the known world’s Zionist organizations or the various democratic socialist political parties and movements they control, that plague our world. You will also find them as the heads of banks, major investment groups and corporations, such as Pfizer’s CEO, Albert Bourla who is pushing to having everyone in the world vaxxed so he can make $billions for himself and his company of known liars and thieves, already have paid $billions in fines for the crimes. As an example, you’ll find a number of them in the Council On Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberger Group, or such as Klaus Schwab who heads the World Economic Forum. They’re everywhere in the various government bureaucracies, even the United Nations, World Bank, IMF, Bank of International Settlement and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development https://www.oecd.org Also remember, they now know a lot of people are on to the Tricks and Treachery, so it’s getting harder to prove those who are in the movement.
As an example, Henry Kissinger is or was in the Council on Foreign Relations (Zionist controlled) and he was caught saying in a cable released by Wikileaks “The illegal we do all the time, the unconstitutional takes a bit longer”. Kissinger was and is a notorious war monger and was always stirring up conflict between nations. See his bio below. As you will see they strive to gain control of the various political organizations using democratic socialist polices to tax and redistribute the majorities wealth to their special interests such as many of the companies that make up the military industrial complex, so warfare is a major part of their agenda and they use all sorts of tricks and lies as the Pentagon Papers revealed to get countries into wars, so they can sell goods and services to the governments. That’s their Modus Operandi (MO) and just about everything out of the mouths is a lie to achieve this goal.
Here is the Wikipedia page on Zionism; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zionism Just remember with Wikipedia, the Zionist try to control content as they do in the corporate controlled media. I have found that although Wikipedia provides a lot of well know facts, you can surely observe their political leaning toward democratic socialism and abhorrence to libertarianism. There greatest fear is to lose control of the power to tax and redistribute the majority wealth to their special interests.
This is strictly my definition of Zionism and if disagreement is met from it, then I do not mind amending it to clarify this issue. Zionists are those that believe they are God’s chosen people and as such are the rightful and legitimate political and economic rulers/leaders of the 230 +/- nation-states and other government organizations such as the World Bank, IMF, United Nations, etc. that make up earth. It is very important to note, that not all Jews believe in the Zionist movement but as I will show later, the Zionist movement is real and their members on occasion have arrogantly disclosed the movements intentions.
Zionists use both political and economic power to prey on taxpayers, especially the civilian population. They are also promoting social policies like excessive taxation and regulatory fees, prohibitions on such things as recreational and medicinal herbs such as hemp, cocaine, opiates and other recreational drugs, alcohol, exclusionary policies such as licensing laws and college accreditation, and of course control over the educational curriculum.
They appear to like the Roman republic model of governance with elected representation, knowing an ambitious politician is easily bought off and they can then use the tax money to manipulate the system to their advantage.
In the Magna Carta (1615) it was the following four (4) Clauses that first gave me the idea of taking note of their importance in the study of socio-economics. I knew they were monetarily influential, but I had no idea, how they had infiltrated the various government institutions, including the government controlled educations systems to enhance their agendas. We’ve caught those paying for their kids to be accepted into some of these colleges just recently, so god only knows just how many of them have monetarily manipulated they education system to get their degrees and other accreditations while denying others who oppose them, their degrees. As you will see, it’s just not coincidental that so many of them ended up pushing the democratic socialist agenda and sadly so many people have fallen for their trickery and treachery. These are the four (4) clauses that started me down the proverbial rabbit hole.
10. If one who has borrowed from the Jews any sum, great or small, die before that loan be repaid, the debt shall not bear interest while the heir is under age, of whomsoever he may hold; and if the debt fall into our hands, we will not take anything except the principal sum contained in the bond.
11. And if anyone die indebted to the Jews, his wife shall have her dower and pay nothing of that debt; and if any children of the deceased are left under age, necessaries shall be provided for them in keeping with the holding of the deceased; and out of the residue the debt shall be paid, reserving, however, service due to feudal lords; in like manner let it be done touching debts due to others than Jews.
12. No scutage nor aid shall be imposed on our kingdom, unless by common counsel of our kingdom, except for ransoming our person, for making our eldest son a knight, and for once marrying our eldest daughter; and for these there shall not be levied more than a reasonable aid. In like manner it shall be done concerning aids from the City of London.
13. And the city of London shall have all it ancient liberties and free customs, as well by land as by water; furthermore, we decree and grant that all other cities, boroughs, towns, and ports shall have all their liberties and free customs.
Then, when I learned about the City of London, not being the same as London, the capitol of England, I was amazed to find out that this City is the oldest City in all of the United Kingdom, much older teh London, still in existence and many of the wealthier financial interest in the world just happen to have their businesses and banks there. Must be just a coincidence? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrObZ_HZZUc
“The City of London, some suggest is the financial capital of the world and if it is, it may have been so, for many millenniums. The number of promenade banks and corporation headquarters or operating branches out of there is huge. As an example “N M Rothschild & Sons financial strength in the City of London became such that by 1825–26, the bank was able to supply enough coin to the Bank of England to enable it to avert a liquidity crisis. – Wikipedia. The wealth may go back as far as the 8th to the 10th century as the Roman Republic declined and evacuated. Other Jewish financiers like the Bischoffsheims, Goldschmidts, Pereires, Seligmans, Lazards, and others, and these financiers by their integrity and financial skill obtained credit not alone with their Jewish confrères, but with the banking fraternity in general. By this means, Jewish financiers obtained an increasing share of international finance during the middle and last quarter of the 19th century. The head of the whole group was the Rothschild family…”
“The Jews could be put down very plausibly as the most unpleasant race ever heard of. As commonly encountered they lack any of the qualities that mark the civilized man: courage, dignity, incorruptibility, ease, confidence. They have vanity without pride, voluptuousness without taste, and learning without wisdom. Their fortitude, such as it is, is wasted upon puerile objects, and their charity is mainly a form of display.” — M.L. Mencken
THE LONG LIST OF FASCI:
Ludwig Bamberger, (22 July 1823 – 14 March 1899) was a German economist, politician, revolutionary and writer. Bamberger was born into the wealthy Ashkenazi Jewish Bamberger family in Mainz. After studying at Giessen, Heidelberg, and Göttingen, he became a lawyer. In the German Reichstag he was the leading authority on matters of finance and economics, as well as a clear and persuasive speaker, and it was chiefly owing to him that a gold currency was adopted and that the Reichsbank took form; in his later years he wrote and spoke strongly against bimetallism. He was the leader of the free traders, and after 1878 refused to follow Bismarck in his new policy of protection, state socialism and colonial development. On account of his opposition to Bismarck’s economic policy, he left the National Liberal Party and joined the “Secessionists” which later merged into the German Free-minded Party. He was also a founder of the Verein zur Förderung der Handelsfreiheit (Group for the Promotion of Free Trade). He founded the Bundesbank of Germany which was in the business of lending for trade and mercantilism.
Daniel De Leon (/də ˈliːɒn/; December 14, 1852 – May 11, 1914) was an American socialist newspaper editor, politician, Marxist theoretician, and trade union organizer. Daniel De Leon was born December 14, 1852 in Curaçao, the son of Salomon de Leon and Sarah Jesurun De Leon. His father was a surgeon in the Royal Netherlands Army and a colonial official. His family ancestry is believed to be Dutch Jewish of the Spanish and Portuguese community; “De León” is a Spanish surname, oftentimes toponymic, in which case it can possibly indicate a family’s geographic origin in the Medieval Kingdom of León. His father lived in the Netherlands before coming to Curaçao when receiving his commission in the military. Salomon De Leon died on January 18, 1865, when Daniel was twelve and was the first to be buried in the new Jewish cemetery.
Paul Lafargue (in French lafaʁg/; 15 January 1842 – 25 November 1911) was a French revolutionary Marxist socialist journalist, literary critic, political writer and activist; he was Karl Marx‘s son-in-law having married his second daughter, Laura. His best known work is The Right To Be Lazy. Born in Cuba to French and Creole parents, Lafargue spent most of his life in France, with periods in England and Spain. At the age of 69, he and 66-year-old Laura died together by a suicide pact. Lafargue was born in Santiago de Cuba. His father was the owner of coffee plantations in Cuba, and the family’s wealth allowed Lafargue to study in Santiago and then in France. His four grandparents were a French Christian, an Indian from Jamaica, a Mulatto refugee from Haiti, and a French Jew. Lafargue has remarked that he was an “international[ist] of blood before [he] was one of ideology” and that “the blood of three oppressed races runs in my veins.
Fabio Grobart (also Antonio Blanco) was born in Białystok, Poland August 30, 1905; his birth name was Abraham Grobart a.k.a. Abraham Simjovitch. Apparently following orders of the Comintern, during the early 1920s he became a founding member of the Cuban Communist Party. After in 1922 entering the Young Communist League of Poland, and additional Communist activities he may have been sentenced to death and this may have obliged him to leave Poland to settle in Cuba.
He played an important, though generally undocumented, role in guiding the political leadership of Cuba’s 1959 Revolution along a socialist path. Fabio Grobart was one of the founders of the Communist Party in Cuba in 1925, “and for decades served as a party ideologue and the man who introduced Castro at party meetings” (Goering, 2001). Grobart was both a member of the Cuban Communist Party Central Committee and a member of Parliament. According to Boris Kozolchyk Fabio Grobart was ethnically “Jewish,” and may not have been a practicing Jew. He apparently never objected to the Cuban government’s “attitude toward religion, Zionism and Israel… “.
Harry Dexter White, former name was Weit (October 9, 1892 – August 16, 1948) was a senior U.S. Treasury department official. Working closely with the Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., he helped set American financial policy toward the Allies of World War II while at the same time he passed numerous secrets to the Soviet Union, which was an American ally for part of the time and an adversary at other times.
Harry Dexter White was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the seventh and youngest child of Jewish Lithuanian immigrants, Joseph Weit and Sarah Magilewski, who had settled in America in 1885. White admired the Soviet Union. Historian Sam Tanenhaus says he spied for them: White was accused in 1948 of spying for the Soviet Union, which he adamantly denied. Although he was never a Communist party member, his status as a Soviet informant was later confirmed by declassified FBI documents related to the interception and decoding of Soviet communications, known as the Venona Project.
So, we might want to ask ourselves if the FBI knew it, why wasn’t he prosecuted? He was literally a Jewish Spy for the Soviet Union and communist sympathizer. He was also the senior American official at the 1944 Bretton Woods conference that established the postwar economic order. He dominated the conference and imposed his vision of post-war financial institutions over the objections of John Maynard Keynes, the British representative. At Bretton Woods, White was a major architect of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. J. Edgar Hoover was the Director of the FBI at that time.
Henry Morgenthau Jr. (/ˈmɔːrɡənθɔː/; May 11, 1891 – February 6, 1967) was the United States Secretary of the Treasury during most of the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He played a major role in designing and financing the New Deal. After 1937, while still in charge of the Treasury, he played the central role in financing United States participation in World War II. Morgenthau was born into a prominent Jewish family in New York City, the son of Josephine (Sykes) and Henry Morgenthau Sr., a real estate mogul and diplomat.
Morgenthau was a strict monetarist. President Roosevelt, Morgenthau, and Federal Reserve Chairman Marriner Stoddard Eccles jointly kept interest rates low during the depression to finance massive public spending, and then later to support rearmament, support for Britain, and U.S. participation in WW II.
Eugene Isaac Meyer (October 31, 1875 – July 17, 1959) was an American financier, public official, and newspaper publisher. He published the Washington Post from 1933 to 1946, and the paper stayed in his family throughout the rest of the 20th century. He served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1930 to 1933 and was the first President of the World Bank Group. Born in Los Angeles, California, he was one of eight children of Harriet (née Newmark) and Marc Eugene Meyer. His parents were Alsatian Jews, but he avoided identification as a Jew until later in life. His daughter was Katherine Graham who took over WaPo in 1946 along with her husband Phillip, also owners of various network TV and radio stations, mostly in So. Florida. Their nephew was Bob Graham, former Governor and U.S. Senator for Florida. Just so you know, a central bank is the 5th plank of communism and a key socialistic policy giving extreme financial powers to the Fasci. The Federal Reserve Bank and World Bank are key institutions to the controls by the international central banking cartel, they control.
Solomon Lazard, also known as S. Lazard, (1827–1916) was an entrepreneur in 19th century Los Angeles, California, a member of the city council there in 1854 and in 1861–62 and, some say, the founder of the international banking firm Lazard Frères and Company. He and Eugene Isaac Meyer are cousins. Lazard arrived in the United States in 1844 or 1850 and became a U.S. citizen about 1853, but In 1861 he visited France and was arrested on the charge that he still owed military duty to that country, where he had been born. He served six days in prison and then hired a substitute to take his place.
Marcus Goldman (December 9, 1821 – July 20, 1904) was a German investment banker, businessman, and financier. He was born in Trappstadt, Bavaria and emigrated to the United States in 1848. He was the founder of Goldman Sachs, which has since become one of the world’s largest investment banks.
Marcus Goldman was born Mark Goldmann on December 9, 1821 in Trappstadt, Bavaria, Germany. His father, Wolf Goldmann, was a farmer and cattle dealer. His mother, Bella Katz Oberbrunner, who came from Zeil am Main, was widowed with five children from a former marriage; her first husband was called Samuel Oberbrunner. His family was Ashkenazi Jewish. His paternal grandfather was called Jonathan Marx until he changed his name to Goldmann when Jews were allowed to have surnames in 1811. From his earliest days of his business, Goldman was able to singlehandedly transact as much as $5 million worth of commercial paper a year. Successful though he was, Goldman’s business was insignificant compared to that of the other Jewish-German bankers of the day. Concerns like J. & W. Seligman & Co., with working capital of $6 million in 1869 (equivalent of $113 million in 2018), were already modern-day investment bankers immersed in underwriting and trading railroad bonds. He started Goldman Sachs with his partner Joseph Sachs.
FYI: Ashkenazi Jews are a Jewish diaspora population who coalesced in the Holy Roman Empire around the end of the first millennium.
Jacques Attali (French: [ʒak atali]; born 1 November 1943) is a French economic and social theorist, writer, political adviser and senior civil servant, who served as a counselor to President François Mitterrand from 1981 to 1991 and was the first head of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in 1991-1993. In 1997, upon the request of education minister Claude Allègre, he proposed a reform of the higher education degrees system. In 2008-2010, he led the government committee on how to ignite the growth of the French economy, under President Nicolas Sarkozy. Attali was born in Algiers (Algeria), with his twin brother Bernard Attali, in a Jewish family.
It is Attali that is said to have put Emmanuel Macron into the French Presidency despite his lack of political experience having never been elected to any office before. Macron was also an employee of David Rothschilds at his Bank in France. His wife who was his high school teacher taught at The Lycée Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague (“Franklin”), founded in 1894, is a highly selective Roman Catholic, Jesuit school in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It is regarded the most prestigious French private school and has been ranked #1 lycée in France in the ranking of the newspaper Le Figaro.
Along with the Lazare investment bankers, with ties the Former President Ho

He called himself a Marxist , rejecting Leninism. Blum thus became historically the first socialist and Jew to hold the post of Prime Minister of France. After the assassination of Jean Jaures, he became general secretary of the French Section of the Workers International in 1916, and in 1921, after the division of the party into democratic-socialist and communist, he became chairman of the socialists. After the occupation of France by Germany, he became a prisoner in the Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps. After the war he announced his departure from French politics and concentrated on international issues. He publicly supported the establishment of the State of Israel and the UN. He died on 30 March 1950.
Golda Meir[nb 1] (born Golda Mabovitch; May 3, 1898 – December 8, 1978) was an Israeli teacher, kibbutznik, stateswoman, politician and the fourth Prime Minister of Israel.
In 1913, Golda returned to North Division High, graduating in 1915. While there, she became an active member of Young Poale Zion, which later became Habonim, the Labor Zionist youth movement. She spoke at public meetings and embraced Socialist Zionism.
Daniel Gilbert (born January 17, 1962) is an American billionaire businessman, investor, and philanthropist. He is the cofounder of Quicken Loans and founder of Rock Ventures. He is the owner of the National Basketball Association‘s Cleveland Cavaliers. Gilbert was born to a Jewish family in Detroit, Michigan. He grew up in Southfield, Michigan, where he attended Southfield-Lathrup High School. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and the State Bar of Michigan. While in college he earned a real estate agent‘s license and while in law school, he worked part-time at his parents’ Century 21 Real Estate agency.
Quicken, which originated nearly $146 billion in mortgages in 2019, went public as Rocket Companies in August 2020 at a $36 billion valuation.
Leonid Nevzlin Israeli billionaire businessman, ranked 52nd in the ranking of 100 richest Israelis with a fortune of NIS 3.6 billion, owns the Haaretz newspaper and the monthly Liberal. Nevzlin made his fortune when he served as senior director of the Russian oil giant Yukos, headed by his friend Mikhail Khodorkovsky. He enjoyed handsome dividends, before retiring to public activity. He was elected president of the Zionist Congress, senator in the House of Representatives and served in a senior position at the Tass News Agency.
The Russian government seized Yukos assets and dismantled it. Khodrokovsky was charged with corruption and sentenced to a lengthy prison term, from which he was released about seven years ago. Nevzlin was charged with a felony of murder, fled Russia to Israel and in 2008 was sentenced to life in prison.
Nevzlin claims that these are false accusations and a show trial conducted for political reasons. The Supreme Court of Israel and the International Court of Justice in The Hague have ruled that Nevzlin is a political persecutor and can therefore enter any country in the world. Courts in Israel and Europe have rejected extradition requests filed by Russia following the conviction.
Russia, on the other hand, is ignoring court decisions in The Hague, which have accepted Yukos’ claim that Russia has illegally taken over the company’s assets and must pay the corporation’s shareholders and executives huge compensation worth $ 50 billion.
Mikhail Borisovich Khodorkovsky (Russian: Михаил Борисович Ходорковский, IPA: [mʲɪxɐˈiɫ xədɐrˈkofskʲɪj]; born 26 June 1963) is an exiled Russian businessman, philanthropist and former oligarch, now residing in London. In 2003, Khodorkovsky was believed to be the wealthiest man in Russia, with a fortune estimated to be worth $15 billion, and was ranked 16th on Forbes list of billionaires.[
On 23 December 2015, a Russian court issued an international arrest warrant for Khodorkovsky whom the Investigative Committee of Russia charged with ordering the murder of Vladimir Petukhov, the mayor of Nefteyugansk, who was murdered in June 1998. Speaking on the same day on BBC, which claimed Khodorkovsky “spent much of his time in London”, he said he was “definitely considering” applying for political asylum in the UK and felt safe in London.
In December 2016, a court unfroze $100m of Khodorkovsky’s assets that had been held in Ireland.
Khodorkovsky’s parents, Boris and Marina Khodorkovsky, were engineers at a factory making measuring instruments in Moscow. Khodorkovsky’s father was Jewish, and his mother was Russian Orthodox Christian.
In March 2014, Khodorkovsky was presented with the “Man of the Year” award by the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza. Khodorkovsky also delivered keynote speeches at the Le Monde Festival, the Freedom House Awards Dinner, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Oslo Freedom Forum, Forum 2000, the Vilnius Forum, Chatham House, the World Economic Forum, Stanford University, and the Atlantic Council. These are all major organizations tied into the Zionist movement
Hans Joachim Morgenthau (February 17, 1904 – July 19, 1980) was one of the major twentieth-century figures in the study of international relations. Morgenthau’s works belong to the tradition of realism in international relations theory, and he is usually considered, along with George F. Kennan and Reinhold Niebuhr, one of the three leading American realists of the post-World War II period. Morgenthau made landmark contributions to international relations theory and the study of international law. His Politics Among Nations, first published in 1948, went through five editions during his lifetime.
Morgenthau was born in an Ashkenazi Jewish family in Coburg, Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Germany in 1904, and, after attending the Casimirianum, was educated at the universities of Berlin, Frankfurt, and Munich, and pursued postdoctoral work at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland.
He taught and practiced law in Frankfurt before emigrating to the United States in 1937, after several interim years in Switzerland and Spain. One of his first jobs in the U.S. was teaching night school at Brooklyn College. From 1939 to 1943, Morgenthau taught in Kansas City and taught at Keneseth Israel Shalom Congregation there. Morgenthau then was a professor at the University of Chicago until 1973, when he took a professorial chair at the City University of New York (CUNY).
Milton Joseph Rosenau (January 1, 1869 – April 9, 1946) was an American public health official and professor who was influential in the early twentieth century. Milton Joseph Rosenau was born in 1869 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Nathan Rosenau and Mathilde Blitz, German Jewish emigrants. He started working for the government in 1989 until 1909 and then took a position at Harvard University where he established the Harvard and Massachusetts School of Health Officers. He was instrumental in guiding early vaccine and pasteurization policies.
Myer Feldman, known as Mike Feldman (June 22, 1914 – March 1, 2007), was an American political aide in the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. Hailing from Philadelphia, Feldman was a trained lawyer and alumnus of the University of Pennsylvania, which he attended on a scholarship. He served in the Army Air Force during the Second World War prior to joining Kennedy’s campaign trail in 1957.
Under Kennedy he was tasked with compiling negative information on Richard Nixon during Kennedy’s election campaign, as well as helping with speech writing and television interviews. His files on Nixon became known collectively as the “Nixopedia”. He also worked on agriculture issues and foreign relations on the subject of nuclear arms sales, often meeting secretly with Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion and Foreign Minister Golda Meir. He was known for the rhyming couplets used when he and Theodore C. Sorensen, whom he succeeded as White House Counsel, traded memos. In 1964 The New York Post called him “the White House’s anonymous man. “https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myer_Feldman
Henry Alfred Kissinger KCMG (/ˈkɪsɪndʒər/; German: [ˈkɪsɪŋɐ]; born Heinz Alfred Kissinger; May 27, 1923) is a German-born American politician, diplomat, and geopolitical consultant who served as United States Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under the presidential administrations of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. A Jewish refugee who fled Nazi Germany with his family in 1938, he became National Security Advisor in 1969 and U.S. Secretary of State in 1973. For his actions negotiating a ceasefire in Vietnam, Kissinger received the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize under controversial circumstances, with two members of the committee resigning in protest.Henry Kissinger was born Heinz Alfred Kissinger on May 27, 1923 in Fürth, Bavaria to homemaker Paula (née Stern; 1901–1998, from Leutershausen), and Louis Kissinger (1887–1982), a schoolteacher. He had a younger brother, business manager Walter (1924–2021). His family was German Jewish. The surname Kissinger was adopted in 1817 by his great-great-grandfather Meyer Löb, after the Bavarian spa town of Bad Kissingen. In his youth, Kissinger enjoyed playing soccer. He played for the youth team of SpVgg Fürth, which was one of the nation’s best clubs at the time.
Klaus Schwab has been married since 1971 to Schaffhauser Hilde Schwab. The couple live in Switzerland and have two adult children, Nicole Schwab, co-founder of the Gender Equality Project in 2009, and Olivier Schwab, who is married to a Chinese woman and heads the WEF office in Beijing.In September 2019, the Federal President of Swiss Confederation, Ueli Maurer, suggested to the Federal Council that Klaus Schwab, who has lived in Switzerland for 60 years, be granted Swiss citizenship and a Swiss passport, based on the cantonal citizenship law. Although Schwab has Swiss parents, the President of the Swiss Confederation Simonetta Sommaruga rejected the application. The Federal Office of Justice from the department of Karin Keller-Sutter (FDP) ultimately rejected the granting of citizenship.
Schwab as publisher of the World Economic Forum’s 2010 “Global Redesign” report postulates that a globalized world is best managed by a self-selected coalition of multinational corporations, governments (including through the UN system) and select civil society organizations (CSOs). He argues that governments no longer are “the overwhelmingly dominant actors on the world stage” and that “the time has come for a new stakeholder paradigm of international governance”. The WEF’s vision includes a “public-private” UN, in which certain specialized agencies would operate under joint State and non-State governance systems.
According to the Transnational Institute (TNI), the Forum is hence planning to replace a recognised democratic model with a model where a self-selected group of “stakeholders” make decisions on behalf of the people. The think tank summarises that we are increasingly entering a world where gatherings such as Davos are “a silent global coup d’etat” to capture governance.
Albert Bourla (Greek: Άλμπερτ Μπουρλά; born October 21, 1961) is a Greek-American veterinarian and the chairman and chief executive officer of Pfizer, an American pharmaceutical company. He joined the company in 1993 and has held several executive roles across Pfizer’s divisions. Prior to becoming chief executive officer, Bourla served as chief operating officer. Bourla was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. His parents, who were Sephardi Jews, were among the 2,000 of 50,000 Jews in Thessaloniki to survive the Holocaust; According to Bourla, his mother was allegedly minutes away from execution by firing squad when she was spared via a ransom paid to a Nazi Party official by her non-Jewish brother-in-law, while his father happened to be out of the Jewish ghetto when the residents were taken to the Auschwitz concentration camp and went into hiding, never to see his parents again.
Angelo Oliviero Olivetti (21 June 1874 – 17 November 1931) was an Italian lawyer, journalist, and political activist. Olivetti was born in Ravenna, Italy. In 1892 while a student at the University of Bologna he joined the Italian Socialist Party. Following accusations of subversive activity, he fled to Switzerland in 1898. There he eventually met Benito Mussolini. Finding only limited support for his views within the socialist movement, in 1906 he began publishing Pagine Libre, a journal devoted to revolutionary syndicalism. He was expelled from Switzerland in 1912.
On 5 October 1914, Olivetti published the manifesto of the Fascio Rivoluzionario d’Azione Internazionalista. Mussolini shortly thereafter joined and assumed leadership of this fascio.
In March 1925, Olivetti was one of three Jewish speakers at the Congress of Fascist Culture. He joined the faculty of the University of Perugia in 1931 as professor of political science, and died soon after in Spoleto, Italy.”
Revolutionary syndicalists like Olivetti sought to change society while preserving the nation. Mussolini combined this syndicalism with strains of nationalism into his fascism.
Lazar Moiseyevich Kaganovich, also Kahanovich (22 November [O.S. 10 November] 1893 – 25 July 1991), was a Soviet politician and administrator, and one of the main associates of Joseph Stalin. He is known for helping Stalin come to power and for his harsh treatment and execution of those deemed threats to Stalin’s regime. Some suggest he was the man behind the mass democide of millions of Ukrainians and others who died of starvation from the engineered famine.
Born to Jewish parents in modern Ukraine, the son of Moisei Benovich Kaganovich and Genya Iosifovna Dubinskaya (1860-1933). Of 13 children in the family, 6 died. Besides Lazar there was his brothers Israel Kaganovich (1884–1973) (head of the Main Directorate for Cattle Harvesting of the Ministry of Dairy and Meat Industry of the USSR); Mikhail Kaganovich (1888–1941) (Head of the People’s Commissariat of the Aviation Industry of the USSR); Yuli Kaganovich (1892–1962)[3rd First Secretary of the Gorky Regional Committee of the CPSU]; Aron Moiseevich Kaganovich [?-1960s) and a sister Rachel Moiseevna Kaganovich (married name Latsman), lived with her husband in Chernobyl and died in 1926 [buried Kiev]. Kaganovich worked as a shoemaker and became a member of the Bolsheviks, joining the party around 1911. From shoemaker to literally a mass murderer; was it calculated or idiocy is the only question.
The Sliding Scale of Socialism
Socialism can be simply explained as the number of social programs enacted, times the financial costs to taxpayers. The more costs associated with the social programs and their total numbers, as a percentage of gross domestic production, the greater the level of socialism.
Government usually provides services that are an expense to society. Although many deem socialism and communism as antonyms, this author prefers to look at socialism as a percentage of the economy where government services and products are provided, to the percentage provided by the private sector.
The primary deference between communism and socialism is private property rights. When there are no private property rights, the government then owns everything, and everyone worked for the government, that is communism. Whereas Venezuela with it private public partnership as many called it, a mixed economic model as economist called, a combination of a robust government sector and a substantive private sector, try to work in harmony.
The bigger the government is without property ownership being held by the State, the more socialistic. Once homes, lands, businesses, commercial buildings and rents are owned by the government, that is communism with everyone works for the government. Under socialism, private property rights are still in the hands of the Citizens, it’s just that the property and various activities are taxed to pay for the government, The more total taxation as a percentage of total productive output, GDP, the more socialistic your society would be.
As an example, many may not consider prisons and jails to be part of socialism, because it is a needed entity yet the fewer people incarcerated the less socialism and less government costs there would be. Of course, the more people you have incarcerated the larger the correction system must be to manage, feed, cloth, shelter and try to educate the prisoners.
Socialism can be visualized as a sliding scale. With minimal government (libertarianism) to the left and communism, total government to the far right. The Democratic Party would be right of theRepublican Party theoretically, but in reality, they are very close to one another and much closer today to the far-right communism than the to the far-left, aka, libertarianism.
This is one of the great misunderstanding as to what political ideology is far right and which one is far left. As an example, fascism appears to occur when the costs of government gets to large in relation to the amount of production or GDP, the gross domestic product as I noted previously. The major fascist nations of Germany, Italy and Japan during WWII all were highly socialistic with high levels of militarism compounding the size and costs of government. To enforce all the taxation as GDP wains from the expansion of the government sector, those in government enforcement become harsher and penalties such as incarcerations and fines stiffer as wages drop and taxes rise. Basically, the government is squeezing the profits out of the private sector to pay for the increased costs of government. Additionally, in the 20th century, with the advent of fiat currencies put in place around the world, governments could simply print more money to pay for the additional costs of an expanding government, but this debases the currency without increased productivity causing the devaluation of the currency which results in eventual price inflation, the rising of manufacturing and consumer prices.
Where this author believes government central planners make a huge mistake, is crediting the production by private companies contracting with the government, as part of the GDP calculations when a bridge, jet fighter or a school is an expense to society. As an example, if all children were primarily educated via home computers, the costs of building schools could be eliminated. I am not saying this is a good or bad idea, it’s just an example of identifying costs and expenses associated with government where the physical school itself is built by some private sector construction company but actually paid for by taxes. Today, we add the costs of building the school as GDP when it is an expense to our society making it appear that our society is more productive than it really is. A society cannot be more prosperous by increasing expenses as our society has seen since the 2008 Great Recession, with the cost of the Federal Government alone reaching $4 trillion annually with $1 trillion of that being printed with interest charges passed onto the taxpayers.
