Melinda’s Inverted Cross By Charles Taylor (Florida)

     There is controversy about Melinda Gates wearing an upside down cross, which the paranoids, like yours truly, take as a Satanic symbol. Of course, the mainstream hoses this down, with Snopes.com, not to be confused with the ever-lovable Snoopy of Charlie Brown fame, saying it is is false news, because, well, the upside-down cross was used by Saint Peter, which is true. Further, the upside-down cross is not accepted as the official symbol of the church of Satan, stand back, evil. The Sigil of Baphomet, a goat’s head inside an inverted pentagram, is the official insignia. God protect us. So, does that end it? Well, Google a bit, and one will find many Satanists using this symbol anyway, it is popular, it is an inversion for whatever reason. So, Snopes does not consider that this could be an unofficial symbol, like many  hand signs used  by neo-Nazis and other fringe groups. Why would such a figure use a symbol that is of contested meaning at best, when she could have not worn anything at all? By that I mean, not going naked, a truly terrifying thought, but not wearing any jewellery? Or, maybe a gold syringe, perhaps?

More Useless Energy Policies By Viv Forbes

25 May 2020,      The Australian Minister for Promoting Useless Energy thinks that hydrogen fuel, carbon capture and storage, soil carbon and biofuels are priorities for energy policy and greenhouse gas reduction. If that’s the best our leaders can come up with, Australia should have voted Green last election to speed the inevitable recession and blackouts that will eventually kill this tsunami of energy nonsense. “Hydrogen” does not supply net energy – burning it can return some of the energy used to produce it from hydrocarbons or electrolysis of water. It is an expensive explosive gas that makes less sense than Snowy 2 - more energy in than out! Moreover, we have no infrastructure that can safely store, distribute or use hydrogen in our transport fleet, energy network or smelters. Governments should not force energy consumers or tax payers to promote Canberra’s thought bubbles - let the “green hydrogen” entrepreneurs risk their own or shareholders’ money. “Carbon capture and storage” is another dumb idea. To capture CO2 emissions from coal, gas or biomass power stations consumes a lot of energy to separate, store, pipe and pump it underground (hoping it will stay there). It would be far better leave non-polluting CO2 in the lower atmosphere and surround every power station with crops and forests hungry for the CO2 plant food so essential to their growth.

     Trying to extract CO2 from the atmosphere is even dumber because the mighty oceans will quickly release CO2 from their huge stores to restore equilibrium between atmosphere and oceans. Even if it could be done, it is a bad idea – why steal plant food from grass, crops and forests? “Soil carbon” is green-speak for what every sensible pastoralist tries to do – increase the humus and biological activity in soil. The quickest way to do this is via keyline/contour ripping to retain water in the soil (as shown in Australia by P A Yeoman), and by managed periodic heavy impact of grazing animals to promote pasture growth (as shown in Africa by Alan Savory). But it is total nonsense to turn “carbon farming” into a costly rural rort run by a bureaucracy of soil samplers and modellers who think it will cool the climate. “Biofuels” are another way to waste energy, food crops and trees to do jobs better done by coal, gas and oil - a crime against humanity and the environment. If our Minister for Promoting Useless Energy is determined to sequester and store carbon, there is only one sensible way - restore the forestry industry. Harvest mature forest trees for poles, posts, sleepers, paper, cardboard or dance floors. Then replant with new trees. Young trees grow rapidly and extract much CO2. But old trees reach a stage of carbon equilibrium when the CO2 they extract in summer is equal to what they lose as leaves, branches and trunks fall to frosts, droughts, bushfires and termites.

Hundreds of Children Brain Damaged by the Swine Flu Vaccine to Receive $90 Million in Financial Compensation from UK Government

     The H1N1 vaccine fiasco ordered by the (corrupt) WHO Director General is of relevance to the current debate on a COVID-19 vaccine. The 2009 swine flu vaccine caused severe brain damage in over 800 children across Europe, and the UK government has now agreed to pay $90 million in compensation to those victims as part of a vaccine injury settlement. This is the same swine flu vaccine that the entire mainstream media ridiculously insists never causes any harm whatsoever.

Salute King Coal By Viv Forbes

     Today in SE Queensland (the “Sunshine State”) it is wind-less, cloudy and cold. We need electricity to brew coffee, cook dinner, warm a cold house and pump water. There is no solar or wind power being generated and no giant batteries releasing stored energy. Where does our electricity come from when we need it most? It comes mainly from the old reliable, King Coal, with maybe a bit of hydro and gas. Lord save us from Green Energy dreamers who would have us freezing in blackouts when stoves, heaters and TV’s switch on tonight.

Computer virus spreading? By Viv Forbes

     The job-keeper scheme must use the same computer models as the climate emergency crowd and the Covid forecasters. All run hot. Maybe there is a computer virus spreading?

The Myth of Social Distancing By Peter Ewer

     The great corona freak-out seems to be dragging on forever, and the postman said to me this morning, that this will go on for the rest of the year, maybe forever, as new bugs are given to us by China in its generosity. I found this article, while looking for cheap paint to do the wood holding my gutters up, the story jumped up on the right of the screen, and I caught it, before it disappeared back into the surf:
  https://nypost.com/2020/05/14/infectious-disease-expert-says-he-caught-coronavirus-through-his-eyes/

“An infectious disease expert says he caught the coronavirus through his eyes on a flight to New Orleans that was “packed in like sardines,” according to a report Thursday. Dr. Joseph Fair — a virologist and epidemiologist who has spent decades studying deadly viruses such as Ebola — was wearing a mask and gloves on the April 24 plane trip to New Orleans but fell critically ill soon after. “I had a mask on. I had gloves on. I did my normal wipes routine, everything like that. But, you know, obviously you can still get it through your eyes,” Fair, 42, told NBC’s “Today” show in an interview from his hospital bed. He said the airline did not abide by social distancing measures — which he believes led to him catching the virus after droplets touched his eyes. He didn’t reveal the name of the airline he flew on or where he was coming from. “You know, that’s one of the three known routes of getting this infection that we don’t pay a lot of attention to. We tend to focus on the nose and mouth because that’s the most common route,” he said. “Droplets landing on your eyes are just as infectious and of course I wasn’t wearing goggles on the flight.” Four days after the flight, Fair said, he became sick with severe flu-like symptoms that spiraled into “a kind of walking pneumonia,” landing him in a hospital. He said it felt like he could only breathe 25 percent of the air he tried to inhale, but was given oxygen instead of being intubated. Over the next few days, he improved dramatically, he said.”

Big Pharma, Profits and Vaccine Optimism By Mrs Vera West

     The Bill Gates school of vaccine optimist has a few problems. For a start, the Pentagon, nothing to do with Satan, who seems to be cropping up everywhere nowadays, has a leaked memo warning that a vaccine will not be available until 2012, sorry, 2021, that new outbreaks in China may signify a mutation, and other smart people have their doubts. Here it all is, neatly summarised, which took me over an hour to dig out, and work out, leaving me exhausted:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/health/leaked-pentagon-memo-warns-real-possibility-covid-19-resurgence-no-vaccine-summer-2021

“The Defense Department should prepare to operate in a "globally-persistent" novel coronavirus (COVID-19) environment without an effective vaccine until "at least the summer of 2021," according to a draft Pentagon memo obtained by Task & Purpose. "We have a long path ahead, with the real possibility of a resurgence of COVID-19," reads the memo, authored for Secretary of Defense Mark Esper but not yet bearing his signature. "Therefore, we must now re-focus our attention on resuming critical missions, increasing levels of activity, and making necessary preparations should a significant resurgence of COVID-19 occur later this year." Despite its grim forecast, the draft document lays out a framework for the U.S. military's proverbial reopening, which includes the resumption of training exercises, increased operational tempo, and the repositioning of forces and supplies to fight the global pandemic. The memo was prepared by Kenneth Rapuano, assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense and global security, and is intended to update previous guidance issued by Esper on April 1, 2020. It's unclear if Esper has seen the memo. The document has not been officially released, and could see changes since being circulated among the military services at the beginning of May for feedback, a defense official said on condition of anonymity.

If the Left Disappeared … By James Reed

     If Thanos of the Marvel film, Avengers, who has magic gems that enables him to snap his fingers and make anything disappear, decided to do something useful and snap away the Left, what then? I have thought about this, but Brett Stevens writes, perhaps smoking a good cigar, while I drink cheap plonk, not getting very far at all:
  https://affirmativeright.blogspot.com/2020/05/we-can-go-back.html#more

“Most of us shared the feeling that if all of the people who needed government were to be moved by freight to Mexico and left there, absolutely nothing would be worse; in fact much would be better, although sandwiches and lattes might be more expensive. The hipsters, neurotics, Leftists, mentally disabled, insane, sociopathic, selfish, schizoid, fatalistic, and hateful people would all just… go away. They did, temporarily, during both the government shutdown and the COVID-19 lockdown. You will not hear this in the media, but people are soul-tired of modern society. It promised them leisure time and instead gave them a treadmill, constantly working to pump up our GDP so we could afford more debt and entitlements for “the poor” and minorities. They realize that the functional parts of society are few, and that those need to stay in play, but if all the other stuff — academia, government, media, diversity, anti-poverty, ideology, the UN, the WHO, consumerism, entitlements — disappears, nothing important will be lost and life will go on better than before. They recognize that Leftism has power over all of the institutions of government and much of industry, as well as all media, and they are rebelling against this Leftism because it has made a miserable existence out of what should be the most prosperous country on Earth.

The Monster Spawn of Chairman Mao By James Reed

     I always felt that the present regime of political correctness, with its manipulative nasty mind-controlling aspects was much like the Chinese cultural revolution under Chairman Mao, with the enforcement of “correct” thinking and ideas. I saw some white guys who were Maoists at university in the 1960s/1970s, and they were dogmatic “dialectical” fruitcakes. Just read some of crazy Mao’s writings and be afraid. Yet, this regime of communism continues on today, with complete continuity with the past. The Irish Savant.blogspot.com, which I have just discovered, does a terrific job nailing this:
  http://irishsavant.blogspot.com/2020/05/the-new-red-guards.html

“The new Red Guards
Just finished Wild Swans, over 700 pages of densely-packed print but a real page-turner nonetheless. It traces the experiences of a Chinese family spanning three generations up to the late nineties. The author's description of life during Mao's Cultural Revolution was particularly harrowing. And instructive because of the similarities between what happened then under the Red Guards and is happening now under the Woke Generation. Guilt was no longer determined by the rule of law, the presumption of innocence (such as it was) abandoned. Replaced by mob denunciation arising from a perceived lack of ideological purity, or something you said a long time ago, or being once seen in the company of somebody now out of favour. Just like today in the West ritual denunciation was followed by grovelling confessions - which were never enough. In fact as we see with today's "liberals" such grovelling - for some reason - seems only to elicit even greater fury, fuelling demands for re-education but with no guarantee of rehabilitation. Humiliation was a powerful weapon, breaking the spirit of even the most resilient. And the more truthful and accurate the defence the more frenzied became the torment, reminding us of Orwell's "The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it".

Have A Look at the Ancho-Tyranny System; The Case of Dr Judy Mikovits By Mrs Vera West

     The League has featured one excellent video about Dr Judy Mikovits, and here is a bit more information. In a nut shell, Dr Mikovits previously had a distinguished career as a cellular and molecular biologist. However, things changed once her research team discovered the inconvenient fact that many vaccines are contaminated with gamma-retroviruses, a product of the use of contaminated animal cells. She stated that gamma-retroviruses can cause numerous serious diseases such as cancer. She believes that the virus causing Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2, may in fact activate previously dormant retroviruses causing Covid-19. The documentary Plandemic details this research. As expected today, the film is being censored by Big Techy, but people, bless them, keep putting it up. As well, Dr Mikovits has a book, Plague of Corruption, which is a best seller. I expected Amazon to have banned the book, but it is there, listed as a best seller, hardcover is $ 19.20, so get it when you can.

The Right Stuff Indeed. It’s the Vibe! By James Reed

     As was said in the iconic Aussie movie, The Castle, “it’s the vibe.”
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/student-activist-drew-pavlou-walks-out-on-university-of-queensland-hearing-over-china-protests/news-story/8f43a983641978071907f60375d8cc74

“A student activist, facing expulsion from the University of Queensland over his activism criticising Chinese influence on campus, has walked out of a disciplinary hearing at the university. Drew Pavlou faced a disciplinary hearing Wednesday morning following his protests and social media posts last year criticising UQ’s ties with Chinese -government institutions and of the ruling Chinese Communist Party’s record on human rights. The 20-year-old philosophy student, who organised a campus protest last July in support of the Hong Kong independence movement, attended the hearing with his barrister Tony Morris QC, a well-known advocate of freedom of speech. After walking out, Mr Morris said the disciplinary panel had denied a request that Mr Pavlou be allowed access to certain internal documents he sought for his defence. Mr Morris also questioned the integrity of the disciplinary process, saying two of three panellists were paid employees of the university. Before the hearing, Mr Pavlou said he expected to be expelled from the university and would appeal the case in Brisbane’s Supreme Court and the High Court, if needed.  “I’m confident, it’s Mabo – it’s the vibe,” Mr Pavlou said, quoting the famous line from the Australian movie The Castle about a suburban family who successfully fought the forced resumption of their home in the High Court. After the hearing, Mr Pavlou said UQ was “demonstrably carrying out a political vendetta against me”.

Living Now Under the China/Soviet Regime By James Reed

     The corona bug has been a gift from the Dark Lords to the centralised powers. Who would have thought that the power to regulate everything from exercise to bowel movements would come down from the oppressive state so quick? Talk about prison planet:
  https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/qed/2020/05/kommissar-of-all-the-kiwis/

“New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has joined Australia’s National Cabinet to contribute to the COVIS-19 response, Prime Minister Scott Morrison saying he was delighted to invite his New Zealand counterpart to attend the meeting with all Australian states, territory premiers and chief ministers. Curiously, Mr Morrison suggested to Ms Ardern a similar app to the controversial COVIDSafe app be developed for New Zealand. The app, which is used to trace Australian citizens, allows officials to de-encrypt contact information from the user’s phone on the basis of a positive COVID-19 result. According to Dr Vanessa Teague, chief executive of Thinking CyberSecurity and an adjunct professor at the Australian National University, this “centralised” tracing app “inevitably means the authorities are getting a complete list of your contacts”. Morrison will most likely not be interested to discuss how his National Cabinet “ludicrously delayed reopening of the economy to repair the very mess for which it is totally responsible”.  By entirely trusting the anointed advice of carefully selected medical advisers, writes emeritus professor David Flint, Morrison’s National Cabinet has not just “failed to protect the vulnerable to the high degree necessary”, but it “went beyond the pale in imposing a draconian and wholly unnecessary lockdown”. By assessing the matter from an essentially constitutional law perspective, Professor Flint concludes:

Do We Have Any Rights at All? No Right Against Medical Rape? By Charles Taylor (Florida)

     According to US constitutional lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, there is no constitutional protection against mandatory vaccinations:
  https://twitter.com/csthetruth?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1262116657394323456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailystormer.su%2Falan-dershowitz-says-its-legal-for-the-government-to-compel-you-to-be-vaccinated%2F

“"You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask." Thus, the government has constitutional authority to "literally...plunge a needle into your arm." “Let me put it very clear,” Dershowitz said. “You have no right to endanger the public and spread disease, even if you disagree. You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business.”  “If you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm,” Dershowitz claimed.”

Degeneracy During Lockdown By Mrs Vera West

     Even during lockdown, it is important for the politically correct Leftist schools to keep up the pressure, making sure children of a tender age are inundated with degenerate sex exercises:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8336201/Mother-blasts-school-11-year-old-daughter-asked-define-hardcore-pornography-homework.html

“A mum is 'fuming' over her 11-year-old daughter's school work which asked children to define hardcore pornography - among other 'inappropriate' topics. Children in Years 7, 8 and 9 at Archbishop Sentamu Academy in Hull were set the work in their Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) class as part of their home learning. Teachers have asked the 11 to 14-year-olds to 'define' pornography, soft pornography, hardcore pornography and transsexual pornography, as well as female genital mutilation, wet dreams, trafficking, male circumcision, breast ironing and more. They were also asked questions about alcohol, drugs and smoking. Following complaints from parents, the academy has now apologised for any offence caused. The mother, who wished only to be referred to by her surname, Mrs Taylor, from east Hull said if her daughter had searched these phrases online in order to define them, the results would have 'destroyed her mind' and 'scarred her for life'. Luckily the mum of children aged seven, 11 and 16 was warned about the work in a Facebook post by another parent before her daughter began working on it. The 34-year-old said: 'My daughter is still very much a child, we've still got magic elves, her bedroom is done in My Little Pony. She is very innocent and naive. 'She was only in primary school last year living her best life, now she is being asked to search for hardcore pornography. 'She's 11, she should be doing stranger danger, and don't share your info online, but genital mutilation is another thing. It was asking about male circumcision, breast ironing...I don't even know what that is myself.”

Blacks Protest Against China’s Racism By Chris Knight

     This is technically a problem for the “only whites are racist” brigade:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/05/19/new-black-panther-party-launches-boycott-of-chinese-merchants-to-protest-racism/

“The radical New Black Panther Party launched a nationwide boycott of “Chinese merchants” on Tuesday — including restaurants, beauty salons, and other businesses — to protest China’s treatment of Africans, among other grievances. Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz announced the boycott campaign, which he also described as part of a “Buy Black Offensive,” as a protest against discrimination in the People’s Republic of China, as well as the behavior of Chinese companies in Africa. The protests targeted over a dozen businesses across the country, none of which had any apparent affiliation with the Chinese government.”

A Hopeful Sign By Mrs Vera West

     With the great conflict set to loom over mandatory vaccinations, perhaps, in the US at least, at military gun point, it is of interest to observe what the general public is thinking about the ultimate causes of all of this. Surprise, surprise, Bill Gate’s name crops up:
  https://www.zdnet.com/article/australian-poll-finds-1-in-8-blame-bill-gates-and-5g-for-coronavirus/

“When it comes to believing stupid conspiracy theories related to coronavirus, young Australians are the most susceptible, or at least that's what they're telling pollsters. According to a poll  conducted by Essential Research, one-fifth of all 18 to 34-year old’s said they had some belief that Bill Gates was involved in the creation and spread of coronavirus, with the same number responding positive to the question: "The 5G wireless network is being used to spread the COVID-19 virus". These numbers decreased with age, with 13% of 35 to 54-year olds responding positively to the theories, and only 4% and 8% of the 55+ cohort, respectively, subscribed to the 5G nutbaggery and Gates idiocy. Broken down by gender, 15% of the 524 male respondents said they believed in the 5G conspiracy, compared to 9% of the 549 female respondents, while the gender split was 14% and 13%, respectively, on the Gates theory. In total, the poll indicated that just under one in eight respondents, 12%, believed 5G has been used in the coronavirus pandemic, while 13% subscribed to Microsoft founder Bill Gates playing "a role in the creation and spread of COVID-19". Almost 40% of respondents said they believed coronavirus was created in a lab in Wuhan, the same number against the idea, and 77% said they believed the outbreak in China was worse than official statistics shown by Beijing. On Tuesday morning, Communications Minister Paul Fletcher attempted to slap down any link between 5G and the virus, saying that spreading such misinformation was irresponsible, dangerous, and potentially harmful to the community. "Any suggestions that there is a link between 5G and coronavirus are utterly baseless. As the Chief Medical Officer has said, 5G does not cause the coronavirus and it does not spread coronavirus," Fletcher said. Fletcher also said that attacking mobile towers was a criminal offence. "The Australian Government will not tolerate any vandalism of communications infrastructure and I urge Australians to report any suspicious activity to their local police," he said. "Causing damage to mobile phone networks can cut vital connectivity, risking serious harm, even death, if a person is unable to contact Triple Zero." As states around Australia seek to lift restrictions, the poll found around a quarter of respondents thought that government should let people back in workspaces and restaurants within the next month; another quarter said by the end of June and 25% said it was too soon to lift restrictions. Only 9% said restrictions should be lifted as soon as possible.”

More Good News: Prepping Now Mainstream By John Steele

     With economic chaos just around the corner, it is good news that people, perhaps in acts of intuitive genius, have embraced prepping. They have graduated from the sheer fear of panic buying, mainly of toilet paper, the fear of having an unwiped behind, to thinking profoundly about what first needs to go in the other end, to keep the system going, so to speak:
  https://www.adweek.com/retail/consumers-have-abandoned-panic-buying-now-theyre-hoarding-instead/

“After weeks of empty physical and digital shelves, the panic-buying phase of the coronavirus pandemic appears to be over. Instead, U.S. consumers have shifted to a more measured practice of stocking up on the products they need as their longtime habits remain disrupted. In an interview in late April, Kate Muhl, an analyst specializing in cultural and consumer insights at Gartner, said her research showed product shortages continued to be one of consumers’ primary concerns—with household items such as paper goods and cleaning supplies topping the list. Not much has changed since then. And, according to data from the National Retail Federation (NRF), half of consumers said they were still stocking up on food and household supplies to last a few weeks, while 31% said they were stocking up on medical supplies. Another 33% were worried about not being able to get fresh produce and cleaning products. But unlike panic buying, which experts say reflects a lack of control consumers seek to overcome by fortifying their homes, this new purchase phase is more about changing needs—and centered on availability. For one thing, consumers are, well, consuming more products at home because they’re spending more time there, which means they need to buy more than they did previously. “Panic buying has stopped, but there is an elevated in-home consumption demand,” said K.K. Davey, president of strategic analytics at market research company IRI Worldwide. “The CPG demand curve is reshaping … rapidly in response to Covid-19 and related effects.”

Life After the Collapse By John Steele

     Some of us have been bold and brave enough to speculate about what the collapse of civilisation will bring. Will it be total Mad Max/The Walking Dead lawlessness? I doubt it. What is most likely is that humans, as tribal animals, an anthropological point uber-liberal do not like, will bind together to deal with those threatening the tribe, as it has always been, and is beginning, now:
  https://www.scmp.com/news/world/africa/article/3084816/gangs-terrorised-africas-largest-city-coronavirus-lockdown

“Midnight gunshots in early April in Abule-Egba, a densely populated district in Nigeria’s largest city of Lagos, startled Victor Osadiaye. He stood by his window, watching the scenes unfold in the street outside his home. The violent robbery ended about 20 minutes later. “I have never seen anything like this all my life. It was like war,” he said. “Not just me, everyone was shocked because this doesn’t always happen.” A small crowd of men, women and children gathered in his neighbourhood later that morning, he recalled, and the local community made plans to make sure it wouldn’t happen again. However, Abule-Egba wasn’t the only community targeted by the armed gangs. Since Nigeria’s first lockdown was announced on March 30, crimes soared in places like Lagos – the largest commercial city in Africa with 20 million residents. Low income and densely populated neighbourhoods have been worst-hit. Some arrests were made and weapons seized. But the sheer size of the city, protected by a relatively small police force, has left much of the population without adequate security. That drove some people like Osadeiye to form community vigilante groups to protect their neighbourhoods. “There is no need trusting the security forces with the lives of your family,” he said. “A responsible man should take responsibility for his safety and that of his household.” At sunset, armed with an iron rod and flashlight, Osadeiye joined other young men for night watch duties. After exchanging pleasantries, they would divide into smaller units to patrol darkened streets, occasionally using their rudimentary weapons to hit metal structures they walked past to make their presence known to outsiders. In the past few weeks, Abule-Egba’s neighbourhood watch model has been copied by other streets in nearly other parts of Lagos state after violent attacks.”

Cardinal Joseph Zen Condemns Globalism By Peter West

     If only we had a Pope like Cardinal Joseph Zen, instead of the globalist puppet we now have:
  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/cdl-zen-condemns-globalization-chinas-encroachment-on-other-nations

“Cardinal Joseph Zen has condemned the modern phenomenon of globalization while also calling out China for the role the country is playing in the world community, as well as among its own citizens. “In China the people are slaves under the Communist Party,” the former bishop of Hong Kong pointed out in a blog post he contributed to, titled “Preparing for Post-Pandemic Humanity.” “The fact is: a pandemic started in China and it spread quickly over the whole world,” he wrote. The analysis: it must have something to do with globalization. Globalization is a fact and the enormously increased mobility of the people explains, in part, the fast spreading of the pandemic.” Cardinal Zen is one of three cardinals who signed the appeal “for the Church and the world,” warning that the COVID-19 pandemic is being used as a “pretext” by world leaders to “control” people and strip them of their fundamental rights, providing a “disturbing prelude to the realization of a world government beyond all control.” In his blog post, published in English on May 13, Zen used the coronavirus pandemic “of apocalyptical dimension” to encourage people to “have a hard look at the journey in history of our humanity. Can we be proud of our scientific progress, of the many possibilities of more consumption?” He pointed out that there are two aspects to globalization. “Pope John Paul II used to distinguish a ‘globalization of solidarity’ from a ‘globalization of marginalization’, one is operated by people who care for the real good of all human beings, the other is driven by selfish interest of individuals and groups.” In the course of his article, it became clear that his criticism of globalization, and China’s role in it, was specifically directed at the “globalization of marginalization.” While many people had welcomed globalization at first, Zen said, “the actual outcome was [very] disappointing.” According to Zen, “the poor of the poor countries did not feel they got any help from this globalized economy of the world.” Instead, the people “running the economic globalization are the world’s rich and strong.” He specifically mentioned the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Zen lamented that too often, those kinds of organizations “end up … helping the Governments of the poor countries, the rich and powerful people in those countries, not the poor people, because the poor people of the poor countries have not been invited to take active part in the process.”

On Forgetting About Corona … Just Like the Romance from Hell By Chris Knight

     I thought that censorship over race and immigration issues was bad, but this corona freak-out is at a whole new level. Even the mainstream gets chopped unless they, exactly, down to the last full stop, parrot the ruling med line of the WHO.

“Big Tech companies are aggressively tamping down on COVID-19 “misinformation” — opinions and ideas contrary to official pronouncements. Dr. Knut M. Wittkowski, former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University, says YouTube removed a video of him talking about the virus that had racked up more than 1.3 million views. Wittkowski, 65, is a ferocious critic of the nation’s current steps to fight the coronavirus. He has derided social distancing, saying it only prolongs the virus’ existence, and has attacked the current lockdown as mostly unnecessary.
