Health Secretary Sajid Javid leaves BBC studios
Sajid Javid has said the Government "will not be going ahead" with plans for vaccine passports in order to gain access to nightclubs and other crowded events.

Plans had been announced that members of the public would be required to show proof they have had two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in order to gain entry to clubs and other large-scale events in England.

But in a U-turn on Sunday, following a backlash from Tory MPs, the Health Secretary said the idea had been scrapped.

He told the BBC's The Andrew Marr Show:
"I've never liked the idea of saying to people you must show your papers or something to do what is just an everyday activity, but we were right to properly look at it.

"We've looked at it properly and whilst we should keep it in reserve as a potential option, I'm pleased to say that we will not be going ahead with plans for vaccine passports."

U.S. President Joe Biden will announce new steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 before the U.N. General Assembly meets, Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said Sunday.

Murthy did not specify what those steps would be.

Speaking to CNN on Sunday, Murthy defended Biden's efforts to expand vaccination in the United States.

"There will be more actions that we continue to work on, especially in the global front," he said.

Comment: Given the US' track record on the global stage, that sounds rather ominous.

The next session of the General Assembly opens Tuesday; the first day of general debate will be the following week.

Western govts ditch resolution to slam Iran at IAEA despite Tehran failing to give 'promise' on certain questions

Western states have ditched a planned resolution criticizing Iran at the UN's nuclear watchdog, after Tehran allowed some monitoring of its atomic dealings but did not commit to answering key questions on its nuclear operations.

On Monday, the chief of the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, shared that he had failed to obtain a "promise" from Tehran that would explain the traces of uranium found at several old sites. Grossi stated, however, that he needs to "have a clear conversation with the new [Iranian] government about this."

Despite a lack of commitment from Tehran to explain the uranium issue, the US, France, UK, and Germany decided to scrap pursuing a resolution at the IAEA's meeting later this week - likely in an effort to avert tensions from re-escalating with their Iranian counterparts, which could stall the nuclear deal negotiations.

On Sunday, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran granted the IAEA permission to monitor cameras at its nuclear facilities, which Tehran has previously not permitted. A joint statement issued after the agreement hailed the progress between the two partners as having "reaffirmed the spirit of cooperation and mutual trust" and "emphasized on the necessity of addressing the relevant issues in a constructive atmosphere."

Israel planning to conduct COVID "genetic scanning" for all inbound air passengers

No details of program immediately available; PM says patience running out for the unvaccinated; cabinet backs proposal for classmates of infected kids to avoid automatic quarantine

Israel is working on a system to conduct genetic scanning for all those who arrive in the country in order to better identify travelers infected with the coronavirus, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said at a cabinet meeting Sunday.

Bennett told ministers that the system will eventually be deployed at Ben Gurion Airport, the country's main international terminus.

"We are working on a scanning system for everyone who comes into Israel," Bennett said, according to comments from the meeting leaked to Hebrew media. "Israel will thus become the radar for the virus."

Comment: ZeroHedge comments:
The world's most "ultra-vaxxed nation" Israel is continuing to struggle to keep its coronavirus infections down, despite enacting some of the most stringent rules and requirements on its population, including rolling out one of the earliest versions of a vaccine passport to visit public venues, which has to be "updated" each six months or so based on a booster shot timeline.

Now Israel will go so far as to conduct "genetic scanning" for travelers arriving in the country. It's considered a huge and experimental high tech step in screening inbound passengers for coronavirus infections at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv.

"Israel will thus become the radar for the virus," he [Bennett] added. However, no further details on how the 'genetic scanning' will work were given, nor whether there might be an opt-out mechanism. Thus a Covid passport, which Israel calls its "green pass" - may be linked to an eventual regimen of forced genetic testing at international travel points.

The technology, which will no doubt be hugely controversial given privacy concerns, is being discussed as part of Israeli efforts to keep further Covid variants from entering the country.

Conventionally since the start of the pandemic airports have often monitored passengers' temperatures with a quick and simple thermometer scan of their foreheads, but Israeli health officials are now seeking a method which might given greater certitude over whether someone has the virus or not, and especially whether they are carrying a variant.

Again though it remains unclear precisely how the genetic scanning will work, it brings up the question over just what genetic data/DNA will be preserved on each individual. The initiative suggests that for any foreign traveler entering Israel, they will have to agree to hand over their personal genetic data to potentially be stored by the Israeli government for all time.

Cognitive infiltration of the 'alternative' media

Question: How do you spot a fed?

This is not an idle question. As dedicated devotees of the independent media and serious students of history will know all too well, wherever you find a group that seriously challenges the power of the state — or, more to the point, the deep state — you will also find federal agents trying to infiltrate that group. From the original COINTELPRO operations in the 1950s right through to the recent (FBI-provocateured) plot to "kidnap" Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (with its curious denouement), there are no shortage of examples of this phenomena.

Sometimes the feds are easy to spot. Remember the "protesters" at the 2007 Montebello SPP protests who threatened the police line with rocks in their hands, trying to turn a peaceful assembly into a riot that would justify a violent police response? When these rock-wielding, mask-wearing pretenders got called out by real protesters as police operatives, they promptly crashed the police line and got themselves "arrested" . . . conveniently exposing the fact that they were wearing the exact same standard-issue boots as their arresting officers. Caught in the act, the Quebec provincial police had to admit that the protesters were indeed undercover police officers (although, strangely enough, they never explained what those undercover police officers were doing approaching the police line with rocks in their hands).

But unfortunately for those of us who participate in conspiracy analysis, the feds are not always so inept or so blindingly obvious in their actions. So it would behove us to know some of the tell-tale signs of undercover agents in our midst, wouldn't it?

Well, wouldn't it?

In order to answer that question, we're going to have to take a deep dive into "Conspiracy Theories," a 2008 paper co-authored by Cass Sunstein, Obama's "regulatory czar" and the husband of R2P warmonger Samantha Power, and Adrian Vermeule, a Harvard law professor who once clerked for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The paper gained infamy online because it controversially advocated for the "cognitive infiltration" of conspiracy research groups. Rather than rebutting the theories proffered by conspiracy realists with facts and evidence, Sunstein and his co-author argued, the government should instead send undercover federal agents into conspiracy analyst groups in order to influence their thinking and "undermine" their "crippled espitemology" by "planting doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups."

Even mainstream pundits were quick to point out that the idea was not only illegal but self-contradictory. After all, how can the government undermine belief in the idea that the government engages in conspiracies against its citizens by engaging in a conspiracy against its citizens?


Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Corrupted Church pushing climate initiatives global governance

Christian churches of England, Scotland and Wales signed onto the "Time is Now" declaration to preach to congregations that U.N climate agendas must be adhered to and followed.

Even going so far as pushing Climate Sundays, for the Earth to get one day of rest from human activity.

This looks like the Sunday Law in disguise, which is spoken about in Revelations.

Corporations, governments and churches all with the same global governance agenda.


Oops: Hot mic catches Israeli health minister admitting vaccine passports are about coercion

Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz (right) speaks to Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked ahead of a cabinet meeting on September 12, 2021.
Officials unaware comments were being broadcast live on television.

Unaware that he was on a hot mic and being broadcast live on a TV station, Israeli health minister Nitzan Horowitz admitted that vaccine passports were primarily about coercing skeptical people to get the vaccine.

"Imposing "green pass" rules on certain venues is needed only to pressure members of the public to get vaccinated, and not for medical reasons, Israeli Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said on Sunday, ahead of the weekly Cabinet meeting," reports Jewish News Syndicate.

'They are children of the same foul spirit': George W. Bush compares 9/11 terrorists to 'domestic extremist' threat at home

George W. Bush speaks during an event commemorating 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 in Pennsylvania
Former President George W. Bush has used his speech on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to call out "violent extremists at home."

While visiting Shanksville, Pennsylvania on Saturday, Bush, who was president at the time of the deadly terrorist attacks, compared the foreign terrorists behind 9/11 to the supposed domestic extremists in the US today.

"We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come, not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within," the former president said.

The Great Reset demands firing all unvaccinated employees

mandatory vaccination
Over the past year and a half, I've written many articles detailing the evidence supporting the claim that the COVID pandemic is a ruse to usher in a new system of global centralized governance by unelected leaders, the so-called Great Reset.

The recent release of the House Foreign Affairs Committee report1 entitled, "The Origins of COVID-19: An Investigation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology," presented solid evidence that many of the "conspiracy theories" about the virus were in fact true. For example, using some intelligence reports and other public documents, the committee found that:2
"... we now believe it's time to completely dismiss the wet market as the source of the outbreak. We also believe the preponderance of the evidence proves the virus did leak from the WIV and that it did so sometime before September 12, 2019."
They presented evidence of genetic modification and wrote this:3
"This report also lays out ample evidence that researchers at the WIV, in conjunction with U.S. scientists and funded by both the PRC [People's Republic of China] government and the U.S. government, were conducting gain of-function research on coronaviruses at the WIV ...
In many instances, the scientists were successful in creating 'chimeric viruses' — or viruses created from the pieces of other viruses — that could infect human immune systems.
With dangerous research like this conducted at safety levels similar to a dentist's office, a natural or genetically modified virus could have easily escaped the lab and infected the community."

Comment: Individuals aware of the dangerous vaccines - as well as the egregious lack of personal choice in the matter of mandated jabs - are now taking a principled stand against the authoritarians in charge of threatening their employment status. Unfortunately, and because of the the current slew of mandates, we can expect to see an even larger cut and breakdown in public and private services which will naturally be blamed on the "anti-vaxxers," or whatever. But where the responsibility should be held is towards the thoughtless, power-drunk, ignorant and greed-mad pathologicals who are helping this agenda along; the cure for Covid being far, far worse than the disease.

"No lockdown today": Queensland records just five new Covid cases as Premier threatens return to lockdown restrictions

© Jeff Greenberg/Universal Images Group via Getty Images
Queensland narrowly missed entering a lockdown as health authorities are confident they have identified the source of the state's latest COVID cluster.
Queensland has recorded five new local COVID-19 cases overnight as Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk warns restrictions could be re-imposed very quickly if virus seeding has occurred in the community.

The Premier announced all five new cases were recorded in the same family - all household contacts of the young girl who tested positive on Friday.

Ms Palaszczuk said the state narrowly avoided a lockdown but health would continue to monitor the situation closely.

Comment: Meanwhile, over in Denmark, the government is due to drop all restrictions declaring that Covid-19 is no longer "a socially critical disease".
