Trump blames Democrats, not Republicans, for vaccine hesitancy

Former US President Donald Trump
Former President Trump is blaming Democrats for the hesitancy of some Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The former president in an interview with Fox News claimed more Americans were interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine when he was president and accused Democrats of downplaying it.

"If you remember, when I was president, there were literally lines of people wanting to take it," Trump told Fox News. "Now, you have a different situation, and it's very bad."

Comment: When the vaccines were first introduced, people who were deathly afraid and thought the vaccines would save them were lined up around the block to get them. Now that those people have received the vaccines they wanted, the people who are left are the fence-sitters and those who are opposed to taking the shot. Trump should really consider a different tack in coming at the current administration.

Faucist: Fauci supports COVID-19 vax requirements for air travel - Biden administration did not rule it out

Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would support the adoption of vaccine requirements for air travel.
"I would support that if you want to get on a plane and travel with other people that you should be vaccinated," the White House chief medical adviser said in an interview with theSkimm podcast, The Hill reported.

On Friday, White House coronavirus response team coordinator Jeff Zients said the administration is "not taking any measures off the table" when asked if it had "ruled out" ever implementing vaccine or testing requirements for domestic flights.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said later in the day: "We are always looking at more we can do to protect and save lives. Obviously, he made a significant and bold announcement yesterday, so I don't have anything to preview — predict or preview for you, but we'll continue to look for ways to save more lives."


The rising biomedical security state is determined to use Covid to reduce every human being to a QR code

digital documentation
Without fanfare and with hardly a peep from the corporate-owned establishment media, the United Nations World Health Organization, also known as the WHO, issued a document last week that should set off alarm bells for lovers of freedom and liberty everywhere.

The document provides "guidance" for every nation in the world on how to go about implementing digital health passports, which is something Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab and other power elites have said since last year would be absolutely essential to conquering the Covid pandemic.

The title alone of the document appears designed to repel the average reader and lull them to sleep: Digital documentation of COVID-19 certificates: vaccination status: technical specifications and implementation guidance.

The WHO is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, "to produce a high-value standard for international adoption and technical information exchange." In layman's terms, we're talking about a digital health passport. These passports, as we've covered in depth in previous articles, are meant for no other purpose than to track and trace the movement of people in real time, scooping up data all along the way.

In other words, one of the most basic rights in any free society, the freedom of movement, will be shattered if your city, state or nation follows the advice of the WHO, the World Economic Forum, or any of its tech partners such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, Facebook, etc.

From computers to global genocide - The staggering influence of Bill Gates on Public Health policy around the world

bill gates vaccine

Bill Gates
TrustWHO, a documentary film produced by Lilian Franck, reveals the clandestine influences that are controlling the World Health Organization (WHO) — and that have been since the very beginning. Founded in 1948 by 61 member states whose contributions initially financed the organization, WHO was quickly infiltrated by industry.

From Big Tobacco to the nuclear industry and pharmaceuticals, industry has historically dictated WHO's global agenda and continues to do so in the present day, putting profits and power ahead of public health.

Bill Gates is WHO's No. 1 funder

In April 2020, Donald Trump suspended U.S. funding to WHO while the administration conducted a review into its "role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus." This clearly propelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation into the WHO's No.1 funder slot. Upon election, President Joe Biden reversed the Trump administration decision, restoring U.S. funding to WHO.

However, Bill Gates is still the No. 1 funder, contributing more to WHO's $4.84 billion biennial budget than any member-state government. Gates has used his money strategically to infect the international aid agencies with his distorted self-serving priorities. The U.S. historically has been the largest direct donor to WHO.


NP view: Justin Trudeau Liberals pose a direct threat to free speech in Canada

Buried on page 65 of the Liberal platform is a promise to introduce legislation to "combat serious forms of harmful online content." It may seem innocuous enough given its lack of prominence in the document and the fact that most Canadians likely agree that things like terrorist content and child pornography are bad. But in reality, controlling how Canadians interact with each other online is one of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's top priorities. And it poses a direct threat to free speech in this country.

On Nov. 3, 2020, in the midst of the pandemic's second wave, instead of focusing on protecting Canadians, the government was introducing Bill C-10, an act to amend the Broadcasting Act. Again, it sounded pretty innocuous. The bill was ostensibly designed to bring streaming services, such as Netflix, under the purview of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

It was a terrible idea on its own, but initially didn't seem like it would affect most people's lives, because it specifically exempted user-generated content uploaded to social media sites from being subject to regulation. In fact, Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault was adamant that, "We're not particularly interested in ... when my great-uncle posts pictures of his cats."

But the bill soon got altered in committee.


Vaccine passport plan for nightclubs and large events scrapped in England, announces Sajid Javid

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

Cass Sunstein

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?
