Wall Street's diabolical plan to financialize all nature

Wall street
It's called a Natural Asset Company. With it the New York Stock Exchange has unveiled the most radical and potentially most destructive plan yet to make literally trillions of dollars on something that is the natural right and heritage of the entire human race — nature itself, all nature, from air, fresh water to rainforests to even farmland. It is being promoted as a way to incentivize the preservation of nature. In fact it is a diabolical scheme to financialize potentially trillions of dollars of nature, ultimately allowing a globalist financial elite to control even this. And the Rockefeller Foundation is a founding partner. The combination of the NYSE and that foundation ought to sound loud alarm bells.

The term financialize refers to the act of converting intangible value into financial instruments. Now hiding behind the fake facade of the Green Agenda that the UN and Davos WEF are promoting along with major OECD governments, Wall Street and the world's largest financial institutions are promoting a scheme to financialize virtually all of nature. They even hired McKinsey and others to put a dollar value on it. They claim it all is worth 4 Quadrillion dollars or 4000 trillion dollars. Yet how can we put a dollar price on something given by nature?

Comment: We happen to think that Mother Nature has some other things in store for those who seek to profit so egregiously from it.


Czech president appoints PM from inside big glass box after testing positive for Covid

Czech President Milos Zeman appoints Petr Fiala as prime minister at the Lany Chateau, near Prague, November 28, 2021.
During the ceremony at the Lany Chateau, the summer residence of Czech presidents, Zeman sat in a wheelchair inside an acrylic glass box. Both Zeman and Fiala were masked as the new PM was sworn in.

Comment: Note that Zeman is masked whilst also inside the glass box.

Zeman wished the PM "success" in his new position and promised to start meeting with candidates for ministerial posts on Monday.

Comment: One could be forgiven for thinking that perhaps there was some effort to humiliate President Zeman who has openly defied a number of establishment narratives:

US Navy may need to SCRAP $3 billion Seawolf attack submarine after 'embarrassing' South China Sea accident

Seawolf Class Attack Submarine

Seawolf Class Attack Submarine
Following a reported undersea collisions in the South China Sea, the U.S. Navy's Seawolf Class attack submarine USS Connecticut reportedly faces the possibility of being scrapped prematurely due to the extent of the damage suffered. The Seawolf Class are the most expensive submarines ever produced outside France, with each costing $3-3.5 billion, and are some of the Navy's most highly prized assets. Only three of a planned 29 were ever built due to their extreme costs. Each displaces 8,600 tons and carries 140 crew, 50 cruise missiles and a range of torpedoes. The assets were designed for long range power projection to operate offensively near or in the waters of adversaries, and the ship's presence near Chinese waters when the accident occurred made it a particularly serious embarrassment. Following the accident the submarine limped back to Naval Base Guam where it has remained since, and despite an extended news blackout there have been multiple indications that the ship is very badly damaged. As Forbes noted: "the USS Connecticut's mishap is a big deal and no longer a cozy internal Navy matter.... the Navy's continued silence is doing more harm than good." It highlighted that the issue could be "a self-inflicted wound, stemming from longstanding but long-unfixed problems within the Navy," highlighting that the turn of events was particularly unfavourable since the ship had long been "in effect, conserved for just the type of challenge China presents."

Comment: Lest we forget that the US spends more than any nation on its defense and yet it's Russia and China that are at the forefront of high tech military innovation:


Omicron variant symptoms 'unusual but mild', says South African doctor - WHO urges countries to keep borders open

People wait to be tested for COVID-19 in Johannesburg on Nov. 27, 2021, days after the Omicron variant was reported.
The South African doctor who first sounded the alarm on the Omicron variant of the coronavirus said that its symptoms are "unusual but mild" in healthy patients — but she's worried the strain could cause complications in the elderly and unvaccinated.

Dr. Angelique Coetzee, a practicing doctor for 30 years who chairs the South African Medical Association (SAMA), said she believed she had found a new strain of the virus after COVID-19 patients at her private practice in Pretoria exhibited strange symptoms.

"Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before," Coetzee told The Telegraph.

She called South Africa's vaccine advisory committee on Nov. 18 after a family of four all tested positive for the virus with symptoms that included extreme fatigue.

So far, she's had two dozen patients who tested positive and showed symptoms of the new variant, mostly young men. About half of the patients were unvaccinated, she said. None of those infected lost their sense of smell or taste.

Comment: A top SA adviser concurs:
"We're not going to have a severe epidemic" because of the Omicron strain, Barry Schoub, who heads South Africa's Ministerial Advisory Committee on Covid-19 vaccines, told Israel's Channel 12 on Friday.

The new wave of infections in the country "is going to be a lot less severe. There's a lot more immunity, more people are vaccinated," he added. About 35% of South Africa's population has been fully immunized so far, which is only a half of the government's year end-goal, but still much better than in most African nations.

When asked about Omicron's possible resistance to current jabs, Schoub insisted that "we can be pretty comfortable" on this issue. Initial data suggests that "the vaccine will still prevent serious disease. That, I think, we are pretty sure about," he said.

"How effective it will be in preventing milder disease - that, we've still got to understand," the virologist added.

Omicron was also "unlikely" to cause more severe cases of Covid-19, according to Schoub. In South Africa, "the great majority of the patients have been mild. In fact, there hasn't been a very substantial increase in hospital admissions so far."
Governments are already freaking out over this reportedly mild variant, prompting the WHO to plead with them to follow their regulations and keep their borders open.

The NYT published some remarkably unhysterical remarks on the variant, though seemingly in the interest of pushing vaccines:
"vaccines are expected to provide some protection against Omicron because they stimulate not only antibodies but immune cells that can attack infected cells... Mutations to the spike protein do not blunt that immune-cell response."

"And booster shots could potentially broaden the range of antibodies people make, enabling them to fight against new variants like Omicron."

"For now, there's no evidence that Omicron causes more severe disease than previous variants. And it's also not clear yet how quickly Omicron can spread from person to person."
Pfizer isn't so sure! Naturally, they wouldn't be adverse to another opportunity to mass vaccinate the planet, and make a killing in the process.
"In the event that vaccine-escape variant emerges, Pfizer and BioNTech expect to be able to develop and produce a tailor-made vaccine against that variant in approximately 100 days, subject to regulatory approval," they added in the statement.


Klaus' Great Narrative: Locking the plebs into Plato's Cave for the 21st Century

2018 WEF Protest • Switzerland
Unfortunately for the Davos Guardians, the reality of the New Great Narrative is a world devoid of those very principles that humanity requires to survive and thrive within our creative, reasonable universe.

In case you were beginning to feel like your world was becoming a cliché dystopian movie script, don't feel bad. It appears that at least some of the villains agree with you.

Not happy with unsatisfying stories, scripts and narratives that shape our disorganized zeitgeist, Klaus Schwab and other creepy dungeon masters trying to manage the post-covid world have called for a 'New Narrative' to shape our 21st century and beyond. Schwab described the World Economic Forum's Great Narrative Initiative announced on November 11 as a
"collaborative effort of the world's leading thinkers to fashion longer-term perspectives and co-create a narrative that can help guide the creation of a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable vision for our collective future."
It is no question that this new project is bone chilling, but can it work? Does it have any basis in reality or is the oligarchical high priesthood stage managing this shit show intoxicated by their own self-induced narratives and completely incapable of seeing the seeds of self-destruction they have created for themselves? Let's examine this question in a bit of detail.


Joining the dots between the deaths of fit, young, healthy people and the Frankenstein injections

Blood Cells

Blood cells
I cannot imagine a much more profoundly disturbing situation than the one we are currently in. Over the last few weeks, I have seen more reports every day of young, fit, healthy people collapsing and many of them dying than I normally come across in a whole year. But that's not the truly disturbing thing. No, the truly disturbing thing is that nobody in public life is willing to put 2+2 together to answer the question of why this is happening. The media won't do it. The sports clubs won't do it. The victims' families don't seem to be willing to do it.

Hang on a minute. Did I just use the word victims? Indeed I did. This is because the reason for this massive and extraordinarily creepy increase in deaths amongst young, fit, healthy people is because of the mass injection of people with a new technology product, never before used on healthy people, never before used in a "vaccine". No, I am not attributing every one of these deaths to this. Perhaps some of these people did simply die of a naturally occurring heart attack, which does happen once in the 10th blue moon. But as for the vast majority of these deaths, I challenge anyone to come up with an alternative, credible explanation. It won't do to say that this is something to do with Covid, since there was not a spate of this occurring last year. Nor will it do to attribute it to the fact that many people had their appointments, treatments and operations cancelled last year — which is a whole 'nother dastardly issue — because we are talking about perfectly fit, perfectly healthy people in their 20s, 30s and 40s, suddenly collapsing or suddenly dying after a short illness.


Foreign forces to leave Iraq in 15 days, says army

US combat troops stationed in Iraq are scheduled to leave the country in 15 days, the Iraqi army's spokesman said on Thursday.

Baghdad and Washington announced in July that the full withdrawal of American combat troops from Iraq would be completed by the end of this year. Training and advising missions, however, would continue.

There are currently 2,500 US troops in Iraq helping local forces counter what remains of ISIS, with the vast majority of US forces helping to train Iraqi forces.

Iraqi Maj Gen Tahsin Al Khafaji, spokesman for the Joint Operations Command, told the state Iraqi news agency that
"foreign forces are expected to leave Iraq within 15 days, except for those whose mission has turned to advise and support the Iraqi security forces. Most of the combat forces have left Iraq, and only advisers and those working in the field of intelligence, training and advice remain."
Gen Al Khafaji said the US and Iraq are abiding by the deal made:
"Talks about extending the date for the withdrawal of American forces are inaccurate and incorrect, and the date for the departure of combat forces ... is fixed and there is no change in it. The relationship between the two parties after the departure of the combat forces will be an advisory relationship in the fields of training, armament, intelligence and security information against the terrorist organisation ISIS."


Taliban leader pleads for help in first address

The leader of the Taliban has delivered his first televised address since the group took power in Afghanistan in mid-August. He vowed not to interfere in other countries, and asked for international aid.

Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, the co-founder of the Taliban and now the prime minister of its government, promised on Saturday:
"We assure all the countries that we will not interfere in their internal affairs and we want to have good economic relations with them. We ask all the international charity organizations to not withhold their aid and to help our exhausted nation."
During his 30-minute speech, Hassan insisted that the Taliban has been "trying as much as possible to solve the problems of the people," which he blamed on the country's previous US-backed government, calling it the "weakest in the world."

He also reiterated the call on Washington to unlock the $10 billion in Afghan funds it froze in response to the regime change in the country.

Lockdown in the Netherlands as country experiences 'worst surge in Europe' with 85% vaccination rate

Police officers stand guard in the Hague, Netherlands, following announcement of new anti-Covid measures, November 26, 2021.
The Netherlands has once again tightened its pandemic restrictions, with a new overnight lockdown announced by the government. The state is battling a record-breaking Covid-19 surge, as hospitals face a 'code black' scenario.

Starting from Monday, all bars and restaurants will be closed during night hours and non-essential stores will be closed from 5pm to 5am, the Dutch government ordered on Friday. Masks will be required in secondary schools, and everyone who can work from home is urged to do so, Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced.

Acknowledging that numbers of new cases of the deadly virus have been "high, higher, highest" on a daily basis, the politician said previous "small adjustments," including the reintroduction of face masks, were not enough to stem the record-breaking Covid wave. Despite 85% of the country's adult population being vaccinated, the surge in the Netherlands is said to be the worst in Western Europe.

Hungary slams EU for 'political' refusal to recognize Russian Covid-19 vaccine

Hungarian FM Peter Szijjarto told RT he's "frustrated" with Western officials playing politics with Russia's Sputnik V, the world's first Covid vaccine. He says they can't bring themselves to publicly admit it's "the best."

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has approved vaccines by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Janssen, yet Russia's Sputnik V is still awaiting the agency's nod despite getting approval in over 70 countries worldwide. For Hungarians vaccinated with Sputnik V, that means they're frozen out of the EU's bloc-wide Digital Covid Certificate system, even though Hungary will start locally producing the vaccine next year.

Comment: Given the multiple glowing reports of the Sputnik vaccine's superior effectiveness and safety, it's clear that impediments to rollout in the West could only be political in nature. Big Pharma has a long reach.
