The Corona Crisis: Has "Depopulation" Already Begun?

covid vaccine
Remember Bill Gates' infamously saying with his seductive smile, something to the extent, even if I'm no longer around, the system has been set up and will continue without me. This is not a verbatim but a contextual quote. Unfortunately, any reference to this and other similar anti-current narrative references were deleted from internet.

It's part of a massive censuring effort. Of course, without censuring the alternative media - the plan falls flat. The mainstream media, as well as the social platforms, are bought with hundreds of millions of dollars to keep propagating the fake and criminal corona narrative.

The plan is horrifying. It is a public relation distortion of the truth, of what's behind the enormous, coercive "vaccination". "The everybody-must-be vaxxed drive" is so enormous, for a disease that has a 99.9% survival rate - and is about as deadly as a common flu (0.3% - 0.8%) - so, that anybody who still can think straight must wonder what's behind it. What's the real agenda?

The British Government has invested in excess of £184m on communications, read propaganda, relating to Covid-19 in 2020, figures from the Cabinet Office show. It is said to plan another at least £320m (about US$ 380 m equivalent) through 2022. See here.

So, how believable is Boris Johnson, who said on several occasions that by the end of 2021 all will be over? Though, he also warned, we will never return to the old normal, that a New or One World Order (OWO) will emerge from this unique covid-opportunity.

Same words as uttered by Klaus Schwab, the "father" of the World Economic Forum (WEF), the alleged author of The Great Reset which - fair enough - presents us with all the horrendously inhuman plans they have for us, so horrendous, nobody really listens.

Israel and the crime of apartheid, what's new?

The Israeli separation wall around Jerusalem on March 8, 2020.
On April 27, Human Rights Watch released the report "A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution." In over 200 pages of rigorous research, the authors establish why, under the 1973 Convention against Apartheid and 1998 Rome Statute, the race-based order through which Israel governs the Jewish and Palestinian population between the Mediterranean Sea and Jordan River amounts to the crimes of apartheid and persecution. The report follows an identical conclusion by the Israeli human rights group B'tselem that Israel's regime of Jewish supremacy amounts to apartheid. That the findings of the report are meticulous in their analysis and overdue in their conclusions is an understatement.

Biden officials testify that white supremacists are greatest domestic security threat

The Biden administration's top law enforcement officials on Wednesday pledged to dedicate their resources to combat domestic violent extremists amid questions over whether the agencies are equipped to monitor such threats in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Attorney General Merrick Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas appeared before the Senate Appropriations Committee for a hearing on domestic extremism as Congress ramped up its scrutiny this week of the circumstances around the attack on the Capitol.

Both Garland and Mayorkas testified that white supremacist groups pose the most serious domestic national security threat in the U.S., reinforcing what analysts have long concluded about far-right organizations.

"Domestic violent extremists pose an elevated threat in 2021 and in the FBI's view, the top domestic violent extremist threat we face comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race," Garland told lawmakers at the top of the hearing.

Oil pipeline cyberattack exposes America's multi-trillion dollar infrastructure security crisis

Colonial Pipeline's Dorsey Junction Station in Woodbine, Maryland, USA
Last Friday, a cyberattack prompted the shutdown of the biggest piece of energy infrastructure in the United States, the Colonial Pipeline system that supplies almost half of the gasoline and diesel that the East Coast consumes. The attack naturally led to higher gasoline prices and a run on gas as drivers worried about looming shortages while Colonial Pipeline Co. worked to restart the flow of fuels.

Yet the higher prices at the pump and a possible shortage of fuel supplies are the smaller problem. It is, after all, temporary, and its effect will be transient. But there is a bigger problem, and it concerns the energy infrastructure of the United States: exactly how secure is it?

As the attack suggests, not very. True, experts said early on that the group that carried out the attack was made up of seasoned hackers. Later, a ransomware group called DarkSide took responsibility for the attack, and the FBI also pointed at the group as the culprit.

IDF Spokesman Hidai Zilberman says a variety of plans for a possible ground invasion of the Gaza Strip will be presented to the IDF General Staff for approval later today.

These plans, which are being assembled by the Gaza Division and Southern Command, can then be given to Israel's political leadership for consideration.

The IDF in recent days has deployed additional ground troops to the border — from the Paratroopers Brigade, Golani Infantry Brigade and 7th Armored Brigade — ahead of a potential incursion, but no decision to go forward with such a campaign has been made yet.


Comment: Social media has been rife with speculation over this potential development, and whether Israel will receive outside support:

Western messaging about 'rules-based international order' designed to undermine UN & circumvent international law, says Russian FM

Western countries are developing rules without the consent of the rest of the international community, and are both undermining and circumventing the United Nations. That's according to Sergey Lavrov, Russia's Foreign Minister.

Speaking on Wednesday at a joint press conference in Moscow with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Lavrov reiterated Russia's support for the organization, and criticized those who take individual approaches, instead of using established collective decision-making mechanisms.

In particular, he noted that some countries engage in "illegitimate actions," such as using force "without the approval by the UN Security Council," as well as unilaterally imposing sanctions.

IDF appears to crow over leveling Gaza residential block with 'before & after' meme on Instagram

IDF brags over Gaza 'before' and 'after'
The IDF has posted what was perceived as a meme on its Instagram account showing before-and-after photos of a residential tower block in Gaza following its assault on the building, which was allegedly used by "terrorists."

"Another significant achievement," the Israel Defense Force (IDF) titled its post of Wednesday, showing "before" and "after" photos of the Hanadi high-rise block which once towered above its surroundings in Gaza City. "The tower was used by terrorist organizations," the IDF wrote, vindicating its attack on the apartment block.

"We will not stop here - we will continue to act in any way necessary to protect the security of the residents of Israel and rule out threats from the Gaza Strip," the translation reads.

Ireland: State terror and kidnapping in the name of Covid

Irish Tanaiste Leo Vardakar

Micheal Martin, Leo Varadkar and Eamon Rya
In February of this year, Irish Tanaiste, Leo Vardakar resorted to a well established Bolshevik tactic when he labelled a gathering of thousands of Irish people, who were marching through Dublin City in protest of the nation's farcical COVID lockdown policy, as 'bonkers'. Doing so, Varadakar made it clear, in a roundabout way, that anyone who dissents against the government could be assumed mentally unwell, sectioned and placed in a looney farm. He had confirmed that the Stalinist ploy to rid the country of opposition by locking them up in mental asylums had been adopted by the sitting Fianna Fail/Fine Gael/Green Party, World Economic Forum-sponsored cartel. On pointing this out to the hypnotised normies of Europe's only fluoride-mandating nation, I was laughed at and fobbed off as a tin-hat wearing zany conspiracy theorist.

I pointed out further that legislation had recently been enacted in the country, with the COVID-19 illusory virus pandemic used as an excuse to change existing laws, in an effort to further tighten the grip of arbitrary control of the Irish people. The Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill and the special powers granted to the Department of Health via the 2020 Mental Health Care Act, meant that an Irish citizen could be detained against their will without access to a lawyer, arrested without a warrant, subjected to force and coercion, and put before a single person tribunal who had full authority to have him or her isolated and placed in a detention facility of any sort, including, but not limited to, a psychiatric hospital. Once again, the Bolshevik techniques and the poisonous styles used to stifle political dissent were plain to be seen. Once again though, the majority of Irish men and women whom I spoke to about this, brushed it off as a minor triviality and showed no concern for its threat to their liberties. It was all for our own good, apparently.

Manila claims nearly 300 Chinese militia vessels have swarmed Philippines-held islands in latest incursion

The Philippines taskforce for the South China Sea has reported incursions into its maritime territory by 287 Chinese militia vessels, one week after President Rodrigo Duterte questioned an international ruling in Manila's favor.

In a statement on Wednesday, the National Task Force for the West Philippine Sea (NTF WPS) said that the Chinese vessels had been spotted on May 9 by a maritime patrol.

"This incident, along with continued illegal incursions of foreign vessels sighted near Philippines-held islands, has been submitted to relevant agencies for possible diplomatic actions," the task force said.

Le Pen echoes army generals warning of "danger of civil war", as signatories threatened with military tribunal

The far-right leader Marine Le Pen said she understood the sentiments of the first letter and called on the signatories to support her politics and her bid for the French presidency in 2022.
The French government and much of the public has reacted with outrage after another open letter issued by military personnel has warned that France is headed for "civil war" if it doesn't handle its Muslim extremism problem.

The controversy was further stoked when Marine Le Pen - commonly dubbed by mainstream media as France's outspoken "leader of the far-right" - once again showed support for the letter by agreeing on the "danger of a civil war" in an apparent rallying of her base around the message ahead of next April's election where they'll seek to take on President Emmanuel Macron. Clearly a significant bulk of officer and enlisted military members agree with her stark assessment.

Comment: RT reports:
Those among the French soldiers and officers who feel the urge to make public statements about the political situation in the country can find a perfect way to defend their opinions without compromising the neutrality of the army - by resigning, said Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Francois Lecointre.

"The most reasonable thing is certainly to leave [the army] in order to be able to make one's ideas and convictions public in a perfectly free [way]," the general said in a letter addressing officers, non-commissioned officers, active-duty soldiers, sailors and airmen as well as reservists.

Active duty military members who signed the second letter, Lecointre argued, "transgressed" their obligations of "neutrality" imposed on every French soldier.

"In the name of personal convictions," these soldiers and officers involved the Armed Forces in a debate, in which the military had neither legal nor moral right to intervene, he said. Lecointre called on those who signed the letter "to demonstrate common sense" and resign, while stopping short of threatening them with any official sanctions.

"Each soldier is free to think what he wants, but it is up to him to distinguish [between]... what comes from his responsibility as a citizen from what emerges from his responsibility as a soldier."

The first letter, published on April 21 - on the 60th anniversary of a failed coup d'état against General Charles de Gaulle over his support of Algerian independence - caused an uproar among France's top officials. Lecointre said at that time that 18 servicemen identified as its signatories would face a military tribunal. The chief of staff also vowed to personally write a damning letter to General Christian Piquemal - a former commander of the French Foreign Legion, who signed the first letter as well.

"I deny them all... a right to make political statements by highlighting their rank," Lecointre added.

The second letter was also met with a harsh response from the French top officials. Interior Minister Gerard Darmanin questioned the courage of the authors, who preferred to stay anonymous, while former president Francois Hollande accused them of a "desire to challenge the very principles of the Republic."

Defense Minister Florence Parly said that "armies are not there to campaign but to defend France."
The Chief of Staff is criticizing signatories for remaining anonymous whilst threatening those that do speak up with military tribunals. Notably, Macrons government attempting to silence the concerns voiced by some in the military are at the same time issuing the same warnings about immigration and integration to further their own agenda: Macron drafts new 'secularism' laws that outlaw homeschooling, claims to be fighting 'Islamic separatism'
