"The Great Reset" - Globalists' reboot of the world and their plans for us

The Corona crisis is the trigger for the World Economic Forum's new totalitarian roadmap – The Great Reset.
The Corona crisis is the trigger for a global coup d'état of monumental dimensions. It is the beginning of a new era, with a new international economic order that risks completely destroying human freedoms. Tyrants have now taken over to forcibly steer us into a "climate smart" and "healthy" world through the World Economic Forum's new techno-totalitarian roadmap - "The Great Reset".

On June 13, 2019, Klaus Schwab, President of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and UN Secretary-General António Guterres signed a partnership between their two organisations. This was done without any direct media attention despite the tremendous implications this poses to humanity. By and large, this means that the power over our lives with a stroke of a pen has been transferred to the big global corporations and their owners.

The agreement includes six focus areas:
  • Funding for the UN Agenda 2030
  • Climate change
  • Health
  • Digital collaboration
  • Gender equality and women's liberation
  • Education and skills development.

Joe Biden - the show is over! Revealing the tools and programming for implementing a sustainable US coup

Chess pieces checkmate
Checkmate.

This is where the bar is set. If the DNC leadership and Joe Biden had a shred of decency or understanding of the national interest (reason of state) among them, both Biden and the DNC would bow out of the 2020 election so traitors to the Constitution, companies, lobbies, and people could be investigated and prosecuted.

Now, if you're a Democrat reading this, you have two choices. You can read the following with all the skepticism you can muster and I welcome that. Then go into 2020 elections based on your conclusions. Or you can ignore it and burn the country down. Your choice.

I've been covering this specific story since February 2015, writing it from the perspectives of the players and victims as it developed through primary source evidence. This story developed in Ukraine.

Berlin offered to spend 1 billion euros ($1.2 billion) to build two liquid natural gas terminals in a bid to dissuade the United States from imposing sanctions over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, due to bring gas directly from Russia to Germany, Die Zeit reported on Wednesday.

The weekly paper said Finance Minister Olaf Scholz made the proposal in an Aug. 7 letter before Washington imposed sanctions on companies involved in building the Baltic Sea pipeline, effectively freezing its construction.

A spokesman for the German finance ministry said he could not comment on individual reports.

'Disarm the police' is the latest crackpot idea from the Democrats, who seemingly want to be seen as the party of anarchy

Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey has called for police to be deprived of weapons as mobs run riot across the US. This is immoral and irresponsible.

The Democratic Party, for reasons best known to itself, seems to be running an internal competition to see which one of its candidates can display the most stupid attitude towards the police. In the wake of protests from Black Lives Matters, they are writing off every police department in America as essentially an evil force of oppression, rather than acknowledging the need for reform while still standing with the boys and girls in blue.

From sea to shining sea, law enforcement officers in the United States are being denounced left, right and center (or should that be left, left and left?) by Democrat candidates. Biden has conceded that the police are systemically racist, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, AOC and others have called for cop shops across the land to be defunded, and Kamala Harris went to Wisconsin to visit the family of Jacob Blake, an alleged sex criminal who reached for a knife as he was being arrested and was consequently shot by officers.

Trump's anti-war rhetoric is smoke and mirrors

If Trump's words about his dislike for war and US troops fighting 'forever wars' matched his actions, there would be no American soldiers in the Middle East and Afghanistan. Nor would he still be selling weapons to the region.

Nearly two years ago, I asked Russian President Vladimir Putin at his annual press conference whether he thought that American troops would really withdraw from the Middle East - a promise on which Donald Trump had campaigned, winning the support of those of us non-neoconservatives who are against pointless war. At the time, Trump had spoken of withdrawing troops from Syria. "The United States have been present in, say, Afghanistan, for how long? Seventeen years, and every year they talk about withdrawing the troops. But they are still there," replied Putin.

One might say that the Russian president was onto something.

And nearly two years later, as Trump faces reelection and a need to show that he has fulfilled a key promise from his last campaign, here we go again with yet another troop withdrawal announcement - this time, from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Trump marks 'dawn of a new Middle East' as Israel, UAE and Bahrain sign 'peace deals'

US President Donald Trump has hailed the "dawn of a new Middle East", as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain signed agreements to fully normalise relations with Israel.

The Gulf states are the fourth and fifth Arab countries to recognise and establish formal diplomatic relations with Israel, after Egypt, Jordan and Mauritania. The latter later severed ties with the occupation state as a result of its 2014 war on Gaza.

Trump told a crowd of hundreds gathered yesterday at the White House: "After decades of division and conflict we mark the dawn of a new Middle East. We're here this afternoon to change the course of history."

Foreign ministers from the UAE and Bahrain were present at the ceremony, along with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Comment: Moscow cautiously sent its well-wishes with caveats:
Russia hopes that the United Arab Emirates' and Bahrain's normalisation deals with Israel will promote regional stability and will not affect the settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Wednesday.
"If this results in comprehensive peace in the Middle East and the solution of all the problems, including the Palestinian problem, of course, we welcome this."

"Russia has been assured that both Bahrain and the UAE are committed to the Arab peace initiative and the solution of the Palestinian problem under the 'two states for two peoples' principle.

"On the one hand, this is a sovereign decision. On the other hand, it should not affect the settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. We hope this will be the case."
Russia will be able to assess the deals only after some time passes and new developments emerge, the deputy foreign minister added.

Caitlin Johnstone: Democrats ignore US military's refutation of 'Russian bounties' story

The US military has been unable to find any evidence that Russia paid bounties on US troops to Taliban militants, confirming what was obvious to anyone who hasn't had their brain stem hijacked by mass media-induced Russophobia.

NBC News reports the following:
Two months after top Pentagon officials vowed to get to the bottom of whether the Russian government bribed the Taliban to kill American service members, the commander of troops in the region says a detailed review of all available intelligence has not been able to corroborate the existence of such a program.

"It just has not been proved to a level of certainty that satisfies me," Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of the U.S. Central Command, told NBC News. McKenzie oversees U.S. troops in Afghanistan. The U.S. continues to hunt for new information on the matter, he said.

"We continue to look for that evidence," the general said. "I just haven't seen it yet. But ... it's not a closed issue."

McKenzie's comments, reflecting a consensus view among military leaders, underscores the lack of certainty around a narrative that has been accepted as fact by Democrats and other Trump critics, including presidential nominee Joe Biden, who has cited Russian bounties in attacks on President Donald Trump.

Gina Haspel warned Durham inquiry would be a 'nightmare' for CIA, according to Woodward's new book

CIA Director Gina Haspel lamented how the Justice Department's review of the Russia investigation would be a "nightmare" for her agency, according to veteran journalist Bob Woodward's new book.

Haspel and then-Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats made an appointment with Attorney General William Barr after he announced the investigation in May 2019, which would look, in part, into alleged spying into President Trump's 2016 campaign, possibly by law enforcement and intelligence agency officials.

Woodward wrote in Rage: Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation
"had already torn inconclusively through the intelligence agencies, they said. Why did this need to be done? It will be very disruptive to the agencies." Barr told the pair there was more out there that had not been investigated in the review that was being taken up by U.S. Attorney John Durham.

Haspel said such an investigation would have a negative effect on morale at the CIA, and some of her people were wondering if they needed to get an attorney.

Does he want to end his political ambitions? Top Eurocrat Borrell calls for Navalny's name to be attached to EU 'Magnitsky List'

Alexey Navalny
The EU's top diplomat, Josep Borrell, has proposed naming a new sanctions regime directed against Russia after Alexey Navalny. Such a move would surely destroy the anti-corruption campaigner's oft-stated political aspirations.

In fact, it's hard to imagine the opposition figure would approve of the idea, as it would allow his critics in Russia to paint him as a tool of the West. While English-speaking and communicative with foreign journalists, Navalny, a Russian nationalist at heart, has always rejected any notions that he's helping the US and EU further their objectives in the country - for instance, lending his support to Moscow's 2014 reabsorption of Crimea.

The Levada Centre, a liberal opposition-leaning group that has previously received Western funding, runs regular presidential polls in Russia. For the past six years, Navalny's mark has hovered between one and two per cent. However, it's worth noting that a criminal conviction for fraud, which he says was politically motivated, means the Moscow protest leader can't actually run for office under the current rules. Attaching his name to a scheme designed to harm Russia would surely reduce, rather than bolster, his popularity at home, and badly damage his political ambitions.

Comment: It didn't take long for some bureaucrat to appropriate Navalny as a publicity icon for political posturing.

Troll-master Trump: Shares manipulated video of Biden dancing to 'F--- tha Police'

Biden actually played the 2017 hit Despacito

President Trump on Wednesday trolled Democratic rival Joe Biden by sharing a manipulated video of the former vice president dancing to N.W.A.'s "F--- Tha Police."

"What is this all about?" Trump asked as he retweeted a video that showed Biden appearing to play the explicit '90s anti-cop song on his phone and bop along to it.

Comment: Biden's campaign choice of Despacito to pander to the Lantino vote was a triple play of bad optics, from the title translation ("Slowly"), to the lyrics and his proclivity for pawing children. What were they thinking?




The consensus? This is gaffe-machine Biden's 'hot sauce' moment of failed attempts at relevancy:
The original video - which many already found cringe-inducing - shows Biden pandering to a Hispanic audience by playing the popular reggaeton song Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee on his phone after being introduced by Fonsi.

Other commenters labeled the incident as Biden's "hot sauce moment," referring to when failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that she carried a bottle of the stuff everywhere she went, which critics slammed as a flagrant attempt to pander to African American voters.


Even some self-avowed Biden supporters stated the former VP's Despacito tribute made them "cringe," while others took up more sincere criticisms over the candidate's policy platform.
