Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
We are pleased to bring you on this hot summer evening these words of wisdom: “Those who do not know the meaning of history and cognitive dissonance are doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.”
We hope you are able to appreciate the sometimes controversial information presented in these articles and essays and find them useful items for discussion with friends and family, despite the “pandemics” we are now living through.
The 20 + items below offer readers critical views of social relationships and the political economy which shapes them. All of the sources below should be examined critically; each one invites careful discussion, and a departure away from the received ideas of the ubiquitous official propaganda that continues to shape public opinion in this climate of attempted manufactured fear and passive acceptance.

Study reveals why some people get Covid toe condition
by Michelle Roberts
Scientists believe they can explain why some people who catch Covid develop chilblain-like lesions on their toes and even fingers.
Covid toe appears to be a side effect of the body switching into attack mode to fight off the virus.
The researchers say they have pinpointed the parts of the immune system that appear to be involved.
The findings, in the British Journal of Dermatology, may help with treatments to ease the symptoms.

Send in the HHS clowns : Why Public Health Officials running the COVID-circus have failed our country
A basic public health principle is, “The more society can function normally during a pandemic—the better the people will manage and survive.” This policy was turned on its head into, “The more society can be frightened, isolated, controlled, and suppressed—the safer it will be from the virus.”

Suffer the Little Children
by Todd Hayen
I have reported time and again about the insanity behind the vaccine’s approval for children, now from 6 months to 5 years. Every time the evildoers need to slash off another slab of meat from the body of humanity they raise the overall pain and suffering a few notches.
This is their final slash—you can’t get much younger than 6 months (unless they will want to vaccinate foetuses, but soon there won’t be any of those around to vaccinate.)
Rather than focus on the heinous act of approving an experimental injection to children who have no say in the matter, and if they did, wouldn’t even begin to comprehend the implications, I am going to focus instead on the efforts of “the agenda” to convince children and their parents it is a good idea to let the hairy monster into their beds so they can be raped by the tentacles of corporate greed and the unconscionable ugliness of human evil.
Sorry for the harshness of such a description. In my opinion it isn’t harsh enough.
I don’t think there is anything more abhorrent in the human playbook of evil than the effort to convince a child to hurt itself in order for the perpetrator of such a crime to benefit. What could be worse? Using the innocence of a child to cause harm for anyone’s benefit is at the top of Satan’s list (or whatever other name you want to give a human’s propensity to sink deeply into the shadowy muck of the dark side).
Come on people, pay attention!
(This demand is not for my readers as I am sure you all are in agreement with this presentation—unless you accidentally stumbled on this article, if so, pay attention.)
There is nothing any of you can say that will justify this tactic of coercing children to “be a superhero” or “be like Elmo” and take this jab “for humanity’s sake.” Nothing. No matter how you twist it all up to support your argument, you simply are wrong. This is evil; this is hateful, hurtful, repugnant, disgusting, and unconscionable. Try me with your argument; give me your best shot.
You can’t do it. There is nothing you can say that will get you out of this.
Again, dear shrew, it is not you this is aimed at. We are warriors for the cause; I am speaking with you here, not to you. If you have any friends or family who might benefit from this lecture, please share. I doubt if it will do much good, but we must keep trying.
Here is what I am talking about.

Ukraine in the time of Covid: Can we trust “horizontal conflict” in the post-pandemic age?
by Catte Black
The biggest mistake the elites made with the scamdemic was to let us see what good buddies they really are, because this instantly and inadvertently presented the 99.9% with a shocking and previously quite carefully hidden reality about the true nature of power and geopolitics.
Horizontal conflict narratives have for centuries been a major part of how elites control their populations. Catholic v Protestant, Moslem v Christian, black v white, male v female, gay v straight etc etc. It’s a tried and trusted method of channeling frustrations, shaping minds and keeping people’s minds off the real authors of their misfortunes.
Behind the facade of conflict the elites have always shared a common bond of mutual interest. Kings (mostly) knew to honor the divinity of other kings even in defeat. Even when they killed each other they did it reluctantly and in the guise of “natural causes”. They knew their own populations were the real common enemies against which they knew to make common cause.
War was just another method of achieving this as well as gratifying some degree of personal pride.
Nothing much has changed in the modern era. And a great deal of the legacy media’s energy has long been devoted to helping to conceal the reality of the “big (supranational) club” that we ain’t in.
Until, that is, the recent huge error of judgement by the world’s leaders when they chose to abandon the carefully maintained “horizontal divisions” narrative in favor of some New Age, New Normal narrative of “international solidarity and co-operation to beat the virus”.
They were clearly going for some “Independence Day” type hug-fest psychic effect. Humanity falling into each other’s arms and deciding to work together in WHO-created mutual New Normal benevolence to defeat an invisible enemy that will, of course, never be defeated.
It did not go over as planned.
They just tried to sell it too hard too fast. And they blew it.
Gordon Brown reacting to a few hundred “COVID” deaths by saying we needed a world government (not yet, Gordon, too soon!).
Goldfinger Schwab and his stupid book of “happy peasant” delusional raving.
Insane overkill on the “nothing will ever be the same” meme based on a few flu cases.
Those pix of people falling over backwards because “covid” in China.
All our lovely leaders being seen at their international junkets ignoring their own mask rules (except for the flunkies), while forcing their populations into isolation and psychological torture.
All pushing their own magically produced untested toxic concoctions, all unctuously mouthing the same lies in a hundred different languages.
They goofed and made it just too obvious how closely in sync they are.
Sure they did also seed a few “alternative” deadly virus narratives that halfheartedly muddied the waters by blaming China, or maybe the US, but it wasn’t enough to counter the truly stunning images of international elite solidarity. Most particularly east-west solidarity.
Why were the Chinese elites spearheading this lie? Why were the Russian elites promoting it?
This was a big wake up moment for many many people all over the world.
Ukraine War! What Is It Good For? Transformation
by Iain Davis
In Part 5, we discussed the true nature of sovereignty and considered how, when sovereignty is stolen from its only rightful possessor, the individual, the resultant hierarchical structure eventually and inevitably forms a worldwide system of power.
That network of power, based upon highly centralized political authority, acts as a population control mechanism.
Today we can call that global structure a Global Public-Private Partnership (G3P).
The G3P claims for itself sovereignty—that is, complete power and authority—over all monetary, financial, economic, political, judicial and military/policing institutions in the world.
We previously made the case that any claim of sovereignty over the individual by any entity has no moral or lawful legitimacy. Yet the sophistry of nation-states’ written constitutions has convinced the citizens that they have devolved their individual sovereignty to their governments.
Though this devolution is impossible under Natural Law, it is the common trick that has been performed by governments throughout history.
The worldwide network of illegitimate sovereigns—composed of national governments and of intergovernmental and supranational institutions—enables certain people who have sufficient means and the right connections to enforce the policies they desire upon the masses. They are often referred to as “globalists” or “oligarchs.”
The G3P distributes its claimed authority through so-called “partnerships.” These partnerships afford private investors and businesses access to governments—and thus to the power and authority that citizens are either coerced or conned into giving to their governments.
Clearly, this is a system designed to benefit a select few at the expense of all others.

· In early June 2022, the government of The Netherlands announced it would cut the size of livestock herds in the country by 30% to meet European Union nitrogen and ammonia pollution rules
· According to Dutch Parliament member Thierry Baudet, the government is following the script of The Great Reset, which requires weakening the country, making it more dependent on food imports, and diluting nationalism by taking in more immigrants. To make room for immigrant housing, they need to take land from the farmers
· The newly assigned Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy, Christianne van der Wal-Zeggelink, is married to Piet van der Wal, who together with his brother are heavily invested in the major online grocery retailer Picnic. In September 2021, Bill Gates invested an estimated half-billion dollars into Picnic, thereby becoming one of its lead investors. Gates’ involvement has raised questions about government corruption
· At the same time the Dutch government is preparing to radically restrict livestock farming and meat production, Gates is gobbling up farmland back home. Despite land prices being at a record high, Gates purchased a 2,100-acre potato farm in North Dakota in June 2022, bringing the total land share held by the Gates’ Red River Trust above 270,000 acres
· Gates claims he intends to lease the farmland to farmers. Viewed from the perspective of The Great Reset, it would then appear Gates may be engaged in the same kind of wealth-shift scheme as BlackRock and other investment groups that are buying up single-family homes and turning them into rentals. The end goal is to eliminate all private ownership and turn the population into serfs

COVID, Capitalism, Friedrich and Boris
by Colin Todhunter
thus it renders more and more evident the great central fact that the cause of
the miserable condition of the working class is to be sought, not in these
minor grievances, but in the capitalistic system itself.”
Friedrich Engels, The Condition of the Working Class in England (1845) (preface to the English Edition, p.36)
The IMF and World Bank have for decades pushed a policy agenda based on cuts to public services, increases in taxes paid by the poorest and moves to undermine labour rights and protections.
IMF ‘structural adjustment’ policies have resulted in 52% of Africans lacking access to healthcare and 83% having no safety nets to fall back on if they lose their job or become sick. Even the IMF has shown that neoliberal policies fuel poverty and inequality.
In 2021, an Oxfam review of IMF COVID-19 loans showed that 33 African countries were encouraged to pursue austerity policies. The world’s poorest countries are due to pay $43 billion in debt repayments in 2022, which could otherwise cover the costs of their food imports.
Oxfam and Development Finance International (DFI) have also revealed that 43 out of 55 African Union member states face public expenditure cuts totalling $183 billion over the next five years.
According to Prof Michel Chossudovsky of the Centre for Research on Globalization, the closure of the world economy has triggered an unprecedented process of global indebtedness. Governments are now under the control of global creditors in the post-COVID era.
What we are seeing is a de facto privatisation of the state as governments capitulate to the needs of Western financial institutions.
Moreover, these debts are largely dollar-denominated, helping to strengthen the US dollar and US leverage over countries.
It raises the question: what was COVID really about?
The Covid Crisis in Japan: Lockdown, Economic Crisis, the mRNA Vaccine, The Role of Shinzo Abe
by Prof Michel Chossudovsky
On January 30th, 2020 (Geneva Time), the Director General of the WHO Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared a Global Health Emergency based on 83 PCR positive cases outside of China. A ridiculously low number.
These 83 cases categorized as “COVID-19 confirmed cases” were used as a justification to launch the WHO’s Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). (For more details, see chapters I and II).
Prior to the WHO’s historic decision, (former) Prime Minister Shinzo Abe [who passed away in July 2022] had already expressed concern regarding the novel corona virus.
A Novel Corona Response Headquarter (NCRH) chaired by the Prime Minister was created.
“… There are currently eight patients confirmed … In addition, among those who returned to Japan yesterday, three tested positive in the screening. Currently these individuals are hospitalized … Two of them show no symptoms. Taking into consideration the fact that individuals have tested positive for the virus despite exhibiting no symptoms, it is necessary for us to phase up our responses including quarantine measures.” (emphasis added)1
These ridiculously low numbers did not under any circumstances provide evidence of an epidemic. The quarantine measures were not required nor justified.
Moreover and this is fundamental, the methodology used to generate the so-called “positive cases” was the polymerase chain reaction (PCR test) which was subsequently acknowledged as misleading and invalid by both the WHO and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). (See Chapter III, Appendix to Chapter III for details)
In subsequent developments, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR test) methodology coupled with other rapid tests for detecting SARS-CoV-2 were activated in all major regions of Japan.
Test, Test, Test
This process of extensive testing using the PCR test indelibly contributed to hiking up the numbers of so-called “COVID-19 confirmed cases” reaching 300,000 “cumulative cases” in Japan in December 2020. It also contributed to spearheading the fear campaign. The latest figures recorded in early March 2022 at the time of writing were of the order of 5,5 million “cumulative cases”.2
I have spent months on end examining the PCR test and its results and can state unequivocally that these estimates are erroneous and misleading. They have no scientific basis. (See details in Chapter III)
What this implies is that all the COVID-19 policy mandates applied by the Japanese authorities since the outset of the pandemic in March 2020, allegedly to curb the progression of the infectious disease are invalid. These include the various state of emergency measures, the temporary closure of schools, the face mask, social distancing, the suspension of large-scale social gatherings, etc.
These measures were facilitated by a draft amendment “to the Special Measures Act to Counter New Types of Influenza of 2012” which allowed for the extension of emergency measures to “an influenza outbreak which would include COVID-19”.
“Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s abrupt request for all schools in Japan to temporarily close down and his call to cancel large events have been called into question as they have no legal basis. Revising the existing special measures law would … give these requests legal ground.” (emphasis added)3
Ironically, this amendment adopted by the Diet on March 13, 2020 implied the recognition (by the government) that SARS-CoV-2 was not a dangerous “killer virus” as portrayed by the media, it was categorized as having similar features to seasonal influenza. According the WHO’s definition of SARS-CoV-2:
“The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and tiredness. … These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but only have very mild symptoms. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing hospital treatment. Around 1 out of every 5 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing.”4 (See Chapter III)
The WHO definition of COVID-19 “similar to seasonal influenza” did not hit the headlines of the Japanese media. Had it been revealed, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s emergency measures would no doubt have been questioned and opposed by the Japanese people.
Moreover, according to the WHO, the number of “Covid-19 confirmed case” in Japan recorded on March 16, 2020 was 266. *See WHO Japan
Meanwhile, the fear campaign was used to provide legitimacy to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s emergency measures.
This amendment to the Special Measures Act was hastily adopted by the Diet, one day after the March 11, 2020 (Geneva time) lockdown instructions transmitted to 193 member states of the United Nations.5 It provided a timely and convenient “green light” to Shinzo Abe to adopt a series of drastic economic measures including the lockdown and confinement of the labor force allegedly as a means to combating the spread of a dangerous virus SARS-CoV-2.
What was the outcome of these forceful lockdown procedures implemented by Shinzo Abe?
Two months later (May 28, 2020), Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a meeting of the Ministerial Council acknowledged (quoting the May Monthly Economic Report) that:
“The Japanese economy is worsening rapidly in an extremely severe situation, due to the Novel Coronavirus.”
Furthermore, concerning short-term prospects, the Report states that, “an extremely severe situation is expected to remain due to the influence of the infectious disease for the time being….” (emphasis added)6
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had casually placed the blame on “V the Virus”.
A microscopic virus does not have a “human hand”. It cannot influence economic and financial variables.
The alleged spread of the virus (based on faulty estimates of the PCR test) cannot be held responsible for the engineered slump of the Japanese economy instrumented by the Shinzo Abe government.
This “severe economic situation” (which is still ongoing) is the result of the COVID policy mandates first instigated by the Abe government in March 2020.
Recent reports confirm that these ongoing economic measures have undermined civil society, disrupted social relations not to mention the very structures of family life in Japan, while also triggering a wave of suicides, particularly among adolescents and young children. (This issue is analyzed in Chapter VI)
The mRNA Vaccine
Why the BBC’s new “anti-vaxxer documentary” is a complete farce
by Iain Davis
The BBC is either the worst media organisation on Earth or the best, depending upon your perspective. On the one hand it is a truly world-class propaganda machine. On the other it is completely incapable of challenging government narratives or power because it is effectively a branch of the UK government and is itself beholden to power.
As an agency of the state, the BBC has actively sought to destabilise overseas governments around the world. It is a master of propaganda and frequently lies to the public, either overtly or by omission, with the goal of convincing the people to accept whatever falsehood or agenda it has been tasked to sell.
From top to bottom, the BBC’s commitment to journalistic integrity is missing. It is simply a mouthpiece for the ruling cartel. It comprehensively fails to deliver the most crucial social function of journalism: holding power to account.
According to the corporation’s published values, “trust is the foundation of the BBC.” The Oxford English Dictionary offers a pejorative meaning of the word “trust”: “acceptance of the truth of a statement without evidence or investigation.”
This definition of “trust” seems appropriate for the BBC. While it declares itself to be “independent, impartial and truthful,” it routinely trots out claimed “facts” that lack supporting evidence and produces investigative reports absent any real investigation. Indeed, the BBC broadcasts appalling lies as a matter of course.
And so it is with a certain degree of mirth that we now learn from the BBC that it intends to air a “documentary” about a phenomenon it has already opted to call “vaccine hesitancy.”
(Bear in mind: A “documentary” is “a film or television or radio programme that gives facts and information about a subject.”)
The producer of the upcoming programme, due to air on the 20th of July, Craig Hunter, explains:
Moving beyond the often misrepresented debate, this programme reveals why some people remain vaccine hesitant.
The deprecatory word “hesitant” means “tentative, unsure, or slow in acting.”
There is no room in the programme-maker’s minds for the possibility that people who chose to remain “unvaccinated” have considered the risk-benefit of these shots, have looked at the available evidence and have decisively concluded that they don’t want a COVID-19 jab.
Hunter’s statement absolutely “misrepresents” the debate. As the producer of the forthcoming BBC documentary, it seems the chance of it providing a balanced exploration of the issue is remote to non-existent. There is little reason to expect the BBC to provide an “independent, impartial and truthful” documentary.
Indeed, objectively discussing any facet of the alleged pandemic is way beyond the reach of the BBC. As a state propaganda operation, all it can do is parrot the official narrative spouted by the government and its partners, who are, in this instance, the pharmaceutical corporations.
In its press release announcing the documentary, the BBC claims that the programme will focus on:
…confronting the latest science and statistics to emerge in the field and dissecting how misinformation spreads on social media.
The BBC cannot succeed in this task because the science and the statistics rarely support the disinformation it has been commissioned to spread.
Consequently, it must deceive and misdirect its audience to make sure they believe its propagandist tripe. More to the point, the BBC is itself one of the most prolific distributors of online misinformation.
For example, in its press release the BBC says:
After multiple lockdowns and more than 197,000 deaths, experts are warning we’re now entering a fifth wave of the pandemic. So why are five million adults in the UK still yet to receive a single dose of the vaccine?
Putting aside for the moment that there are actually more than eleven million UK adults yet to receive a single dose of the vaccine and the fact that the BBC itself reported that there were just three million less than a week later, the rest of this claim assumes, without good reason, that there was a “pandemic” in the first place.
We now know there is
very little evidence that a genuine pandemic ever occurred, yet the BBC keeps
up its charade by omitting key facts.
Here is one such key fact: In 2009 the World Health Organisation (WHO) suddenly and radically changed its long-time definition of the word “pandemic.” It removed the defining phrase “several, simultaneous epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness,” replacing it with reference to a disease for which “most people do not have immunity.”
Under this definition, practically any new disease can be declared a pandemic. But the BBC won’t inform its audience of the WHO’s changed definition nor the fact that under the original, and more valid, definition, COVID-19 disease could never have been described as a pandemic.
The BBC has left its audience in the dark about a number of other important facts:

The Persecution of Julian Assange: Crimes Upon Crimes Within Crimes
with Kristina Borjesson
In this Whistleblower Newsroom editorial, host Kristina Borjesson discusses the illegal actions to which Assange has, and continues to be, subjected to by three nations—the US, UK and Sweden, working to fulfill the American government’s aim to get him to the US to face espionage charges.
The illegal pursuit of Assange was triggered by, most prominently, the Wikileaks release of “Collateral Murder,” a video depicting a war crime in progress: US military gunfire from an Apache helicopter mowing down eleven civilians, including two Reuters journalists.
Borjesson points out that this war crime was a crime within the larger crime of the illegal Iraq war, both of which paved the way for the criminal persecution of Assange.

Watch the New MintPress News Documentary Film: Gaza Fights Back
by Dan Cohen
Filmed during the attack and in the days following the ceasefire, the documentary tells the story of how Gaza’s armed resistance groups outwitted the vastly superior Israeli military and established their ability to intervene against Israeli ethnic cleansing of neighborhoods like Sheikh Jarrah and provocations at the al-Aqsa compound in occupied East Jerusalem.
“The Palestinian military capabilities are not highly sophisticated and destructive, but it becomes so effective when it’s used by Palestinian smart youths who believe in their rights and freedom,” a masked al-Qassam commander says.
The documentary features intimate interviews with survivors, many of whom lost family members in the Israeli bombardment.
Among them is Omar Abu al-Ouf, who lost 22 family members in the bombing of his family’s house in al-Remal, Gaza’s main thoroughfare.

Three Illuminating Quotes About The War In Ukraine

Russia-Ukraine war: The West must stop its unconditional support for Kyiv
by Alain Gabon
Academic studies, dissident intellectuals and history itself have shown how quickly our information systems can turn into gigantic propaganda machines as soon as states go to war.
Amid the Russia-Ukraine war, Nato and the European Union offer a perfect example of this type of “war communication”. In terms of censorship, disinformation and propaganda, we are witnessing a replay of what happened during the Gulf War and the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Wherever one turns, with rare exceptions, the only voices authorised to speak are those giving the official party line: Nato spokespersons, retired officers converted to the lucrative business of security consulting, “geopolitical experts” (but only those who will stick to the script), Russia’s political opponents, Ukrainian deputies and other allies of President Volodymyr Zelensky, himself the object of a mindless cult of personality.
The veneration and even mythification of Zelensky, which has reached absurdist levels, is partly explained by an understandable detestation of the aggressor, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and by the acting talents of Zelensky, a professional comedian who has shrewdly seized the moment to radically rebrand himself as a symbol of resistance, freedom and democracy - the camp of good against the “absolute evil” embodied by Putin, a sort of cross between Che Guevara and Rambo.

“The Secret History of MI5 and MI6 Compilation”
from The Film Archives
The Security Service, also known as MI5 (Military Intelligence, Section 5), is the United Kingdom's domestic counter-intelligence and security agency and is part of its intelligence machinery alongside the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), and Defence Intelligence (DI). MI5 is directed by the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), and the service is bound by the Security Service Act 1989. The service is directed to protect British parliamentary democracy and economic interests and to counter terrorism and espionage within the United Kingdom (UK). Within the civil service community, the service is colloquially known as Box, or Box 500, after its official wartime address of PO Box 500; its current address is PO Box 3255, London SW1P 1AE. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MI5 The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), commonly known as MI6 (Military Intelligence, Section 6), is the foreign intelligence service of the United Kingdom, tasked mainly with the covert overseas collection and analysis of human intelligence in support of the UK's national security. SIS is one of the British intelligence agencies and the Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service ("C") is directly accountable to the Foreign Secretary. Formed in 1909 as the foreign section of the Secret Service Bureau, the section grew greatly during the First World War officially adopting its current name around 1920. The name "MI6" (meaning Military Intelligence, Section 6) originated as a convenient label during the Second World War, when SIS was known by many names. It is still commonly used today. The existence of SIS was not officially acknowledged until 1994. That year the Intelligence Services Act 1994 (ISA) was introduced to Parliament, to place the organisation on a statutory footing for the first time. It provides the legal basis for its operations. Today, SIS is subject to public oversight by the Investigatory Powers Tribunal and the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament. The stated priority roles of SIS are counter-terrorism, counter-proliferation, providing intelligence in support of cyber security, and supporting stability overseas to disrupt terrorism and other criminal activities. Unlike its main sister agencies, Security Service (MI5) and Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), SIS works exclusively in foreign intelligence gathering; the ISA allows it to carry out operations only against persons outside the British Islands. Some of SIS's actions since the 2000s have attracted significant controversy, such as its alleged complicity in acts of enhanced interrogation techniques and extraordinary rendition. Since 1994, SIS headquarters have been in the SIS Building in London, on the South Bank of the River Thames.

Biden's Middle East Visit Undermines Regional Security

The United States Does Not Have an Economy
by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
The US financial sector has long looted other countries. A number of participants have described the process. First a country is enticed with bribes to the leaders to take out loans that cannot be serviced or repaid. Then in comes the IMF. Austerity is imposed on the population. Public services and employment are cut to free resources for debt service, and public assets are sold to repay the loan. Living standards fall, and US corporations take over the country’s economy.
As foreign governments, having experienced or witnessed the economic carnage and fearing accountability, are less willing to be bribed into indebting their countries, American finance is now applying this technique to Americans. Contrary to the narrative in the financial press, the Federal Reserve is not raising interest rates in order to fight inflation. It is ludicrous to think that a three-quarters of one percent rise in a very low interest rate is going to have any impact on a 9.1% rate of consumer inflation or that speculation that the Federal Reserve has in mind another three-quarters of one percent possibly followed by one half of one percent comprise an anti-inflation policy. If all these increases occur, it still leaves the interest rate below the inflation rate.
Moreover, as I have previously explained, the inflation is not monetary. The higher prices are the result of supply disruptions caused by Washington’s Covid lockdowns and Russian sanctions. Production was stopped and supply chains are broken.
The Federal Reserve’s rise in interest rates is just a continuation of its policy of concentrating income and wealth in the hands of the One Percent. Quantitative Easing was the cloak for the Federal Reserve to print $8.2 trillion in new money which was directed or found its way into the prices of stocks and bonds, thus enriching the small number who own most of these financial instruments. Having maxed out this avenue of wealth concentration, the Federal Reserve is now raising interest rates in order to drive up mortgage costs to aspiring home owners. The Federal Reserve is driving individuals out of the housing market in order to free up properties for “private equity” firms to purchase homes for their rental values. That private equity firms see rental income from the existing stock of houses as the best investment opportunity tells us that the US economy has played out. When investment goes into existing assets, not into producing new assets, the economy ceases to grow.
IMF Sounds Global Economic Alarm, Says Worldwide Recession Coming In 2023
Fed Fights Inflation Monster It Created While Destroying Dollar, 'Jekyll Island' Author Warns
by Daniela Cambone
The Federal Reserve has been aggressively hiking interest rates this year in an effort to quell today's multidecade-high inflation, and reports indicate they are looking to raise interest rates another percentage point this month.
recent guest believes the Fed is just trying to appear like it intends to bring
inflation back down...
I sat down with G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature from Jekyll Island. Griffin asserts that the Federal Reserve's efforts to combat inflation with interest-rate hikes are disingenuous and won't be enough to clean up the mess it made by printing too much money.
"The Federal Reserve is the cause of inflation... When you have a central bank that creates as much money as it wants to, it's a scam."
contends that today's rampant inflation is constricting anyone who isn't
wealthy. He says, "The middle class is being squeezed out of existence.
The rich are getting much richer, the middle class is getting smaller, and the
poor are getting poorer. We're almost going back to a medieval stage."
He contends that the Federal Reserve is intentionally driving down the value of the U.S. dollar in an effort to transition into a cashless monetary system.
Griffin makes it clear that, "The reason why we have inflation is that the money supply is not pegged to something that takes human effort to produce."
He says, "[The Fed is] actively trying to destroy the U.S. dollar... Whatever savings you have or wealth you've been able to build, you want to get that out of dollars and into something else."
Griffin believes that countries around the world have soured on the U.S. dollar because they disagree with how funds have been used throughout the pandemic. He says, "They don't have trust in the dollar anymore because they see how foolishly politicians and the bankers at the Federal Reserve have been playing at the roulette wheel."
He concludes by stressing that even though the U.S. dollar has faced scrutiny throughout the pandemic as a global currency, banks will never fully adopt precious metals as a primary currency.
Griffin says, "They can never have enough of it to base a monetary system on it that is profitable to them."

As US Refuses to Act, Suspected Alex Odeh Assassins Enjoy Influential Role in Israeli Politics
by David Sheen
Palestinian-American activist Alex Odeh was murdered outside his California office in October 1985. For decades, law enforcement officials have openly speculated that the perpetrators were members of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) – a terrorist group led at the time by the notorious militant Irv Rubin. It is widely alleged that three individuals – Robert Manning, Keith Israel Fuchs and Baruch Ben Yosef (also known as Andy Green) carried out the task.
Yet no one has ever been charged with Odeh’s murder. In part one, we revealed new testimony from “Moshe V”, a California convict and a longtime Rubin associate. V is willing to testify before relevant authorities that Rubin and his henchmen boasted about killing Odeh – evidence that could prove to be the lynchpin of any future trial. But the FBI has failed to question V about this new evidence, and it is far from clear whether it ever will. Speaking with this author, Ben Yosef categorically rejected V’s testimony.

While Guilty for Sex Trafficking, Ghislaine Maxwell Takes Fall for Alleged Sexual Blackmail Operation Run by Western Intelligence Agencies
by Jeremy Kuzmarov
Evidence suggests that Epstein and his paramour Ghislaine Maxwell were working for U.S., British and Israeli intelligence agencies to build a video database of sexually compromised political leaders, oligarchs and influential celebrities who could be manipulated and controlled by blackmail.
The really intriguing question is what happened to the tens of thousands of hours of videos seized by the FBI, which may show global affluentials engaging in illegal sex with underage girls.
Ghislaine Maxwell claims that she has copies of the Epstein sex videos and now threatens to use as bargaining chips to save herself—or take them all down with her.
