Since the Spanish Flu of 1918, Big Pharma has lied to the public about the safety of vaccines.

The role of the Rockefellers

Vaccine enthusiast Bill Gates recently spoke at the TED2022 platform calling the anti-Vax movement a bunch of crazy people, here is what he said, "So it's somewhat ironic to have somebody turn around and say we're using vaccines to kill people or to make money or we started the pandemic" he continued "Does this turn into something where there's constantly crazy people showing up? Who knows?" Since the old days when the medical establishment expanded the use of vaccines to supposedly cure everything under the sun, they claim that they have saved countless lives, yet it seems that many people whether they are in the medical field or not, accept the notion that vaccines are the only answer that can cure a disease or help people stay healthy. I want to mention that there have been vaccines that were successful, but not all of them, these days its sort of playing Russian roulette with your life, so let's take a step back and look at some of those vaccines that has caused injuries and deaths' in its historical context.

During World War I, a major pandemic known as the Spanish Flu of 1918 shaped the way we view the use of vaccines. It was a conspiracy that was astounding once you dive into what was behind the worldwide pandemic at the time. It was estimated that the Spanish Flu had killed between 50 and 100 million people worldwide. It is important to clarify that the Spanish Flu was not at all Spanish, it was American, and it began at an army base in Fort Riley, Kansas where the first case of the flu was discovered.

The Federal Security Service has published top secret testimony from Nazi leader's pilot.

Russia's Federal Security Service (the successor of the KGB) has declassified documents from the case file of Adolf Hitler's personal pilot on Friday, revealing details of the final hours of the Nazi dictator. Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945, just days before Soviet troops captured Berlin, effectively ending World War II in Europe. His body had been doused with gasoline and burned.

Lieutenant General Hans Baur who worked for Hitler for more than a decade, was captured by Soviet soldiers on May 2, 1945, and faced trial in Moscow. Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) published previously classified documents from Baur's file. The papers from the FSB's Novgorod region branch include Baur's handwritten autobiography and its translation from German, as well as his testimony.

Clash of Christianities: Why Europe cannot understand Russia

Western Europeans see the Orthodox and eastern Christians as satraps and a bunch of smugglers, while the Orthodox regard the Crusaders as barbarian usurpers bent on world conquest.

Under an ubiquitous, toxic atmosphere of cognitive dissonance drenched in Russophobia, it's absolutely impossible to have a meaningful discussion on finer points of Russian history and culture across the NATO space - a phenomenon I'm experiencing back in Paris right now, fresh from a long stint in Istanbul.

At best, in a semblance of civilized dialogue, Russia is pigeonholed in the reductionist view of a threatening, irrational, ever-expanding empire - a way more wicked version of Ancient Rome, Achaemenid Persia, Ottoman Turkey or Mughal India.

The fall of the USSR a little over three decades ago did hurl Russia back three centuries - to its borders in the 17th century. Russia, historically, had been interpreted as a secular empire - immense, multiple and multinational. This is all informed by history, very much alive even today in the Russian collective unconscious.

When Operation Z started I was in Istanbul - the Second Rome. I spent a considerable time of my late night walks around Hagia Sophia reflecting on the historical correlations of the Second Rome with the Third Rome - which happens to be Moscow, since the concept was first enounced at the start of the 16th century.

Later, back in Paris, banishment to soliloquy territory seemed inevitable until an academic pointed me to some substance, although heavily distorted by political correctness, available in the French magazine Historia.

There's at least an attempt to discuss the Third Rome. The significance of the concept was initially religious before becoming political - encapsulating the Russian drive to become the leader of the Orthodox world in contrast with Catholicism. This has to be understood also in the context of pan-Slavic theories springing up under the first Romanov and then reaching their apogee in the 19th century.

Eurasianism - and its several declinations - treats the complex Russian identity as double-faced, between east and west. Western liberal democracies simply can't understand that these ideas - infusing varied brands of Russian nationalism - do not imply hostility to "enlightened" Europe, but an affirmation of Difference (they could learn a bit from reading more Gilles Deleuze for that matter). Eurasianism also weighs on closer relations with Central Asia and necessary alliances, in various degrees, with China and Turkey.

A perplexed liberal west remains hostage to a vortex of Russian images which it can't properly decode - from the two-headed eagle, which is the symbol of the Russian state since Peter the Great, to the Kremlin cathedrals, the St. Petersburg citadel, the Red Army entering Berlin in 1945, the May 9 parades (the next one will be particularly meaningful), and historical figures from Ivan the Terrible to Peter the Great. At best - and we're talking academic level 'experts' - they identify all of the above as "flamboyant and confused" imagery.

The real man behind the reset? The man who mentored Klaus Schwab, Pope Francis and others

Paulo Freire

Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire -1970
The roots of the World Economic Forum's "Great Reset" go deep. We consider what may be the tap root, or at least a few of the major influences, that have fed the WEF's obsession with social/cultural revolution led by a self-elected few who understand the true nature of "the fourth industrial revolution". This is repackaged Marxism, a liberation theology that ultimately excludes God and replaces Him with the communist idea of utopia. There's a reason why WEF's proclamation, "You will own nothing and be happy," sounds starkly Marxian...

PAULO FREIRE

For those interested in Marxism, the name Paulo Freire1 may ring a bell. Born in Brazil in 1921, Freire became interested in various offshoots of Marxism, with a particular focus on theory applied to education. With various writings touching primarily on language and oppression, Freire carved a name for himself amongst likeminded socialist intellectuals. Despite his rather niche writings, Freire would eventually reach new levels of fame in the 1980s with a spike in popularity regarding his 1968 book 'Pedagogy of the Oppressed', which fleshed out the idea of 'critical pedagogy' and its relation to such topics as adult education. This was in no small part thanks to Henry Giroux - an influential American thinker who attempted (rather successfully) to inject a modernised form of critical pedagogy into the structure of western education - but was primarily a result of his 1985 work 'Politics of Education', which laid the groundwork for the application of his previous ideas into educational systems.

Bill Clinton signs NATO expansion legislation in May 1998.
Writes a Deceitful Article in The Atlantic Magazine That Distorts History to Defend His Fateful Presidential Blunder

With the Ukraine war expanding and the threat of nuclear catastrophe rising, Bill Clinton has written an article in The Atlantic magazine trying to defend what many see as indefensible: his administration's support for the expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in March 1999 into Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic against a pledge by the Bush administration to Mikhail Gorbachev that NATO would not expand "one inch eastward."

Clinton had been warned at the time by Russian President Boris Yeltsin (1991-1999) that NATO expansion would result in "nothing but humiliation for Russia" and could provoke a new Cold War.

Yeltsin told Clinton: "How do you think it looks to us if one bloc [from the Cold War] continued to exist when the Warsaw Pact has been abolished? It's a new form of encirclement if the one surviving Cold War bloc expands right up to the borders of Russia." [1]

This undated photo provided by the Egyptian Tourism and Antiquities Ministry on Monday, April 25, 2022, shows archeologists working in the ruins of a temple for Zeus-Kasios, the ancient Greek god, at the Tell el-Farma archaeological site in the northwestern corner of the Sinai Peninsula. Tell el-Farma, also known by its ancient name Pelusium, dates back to the late Pharaonic period and was also used during Greco-Roman and Byzantine times.
Cairo — Egyptian archaeologists unearthed the ruins of a temple for the ancient Greek god Zeus in the Sinai Peninsula, antiquities authorities said Monday.

The Tourism and Antiquities Ministry said in a statement the temple ruins were found in the Tell el-Farma archaeological site in northwestern Sinai.

Tell el-Farma, also known by its ancient name Pelusium, dates back to the late Pharaonic period and was also used during Greco-Roman and Byzantine times. There are also remains dating to the Christian and early Islamic periods.

Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, said archaeologists excavated the temple ruins through its entrance gate, where two huge fallen granite columns were visible. The gate was destroyed in a powerful earthquake in ancient times, he said.

Waziri said the ruins were found between the Pelusium Fort and a memorial church at the site. Archaeologists found a set of granite blocks probably used to build a staircase for worshipers to reach the temple.

While working for the CIA in 1950, the criminal against humanity Stepan Bandera wrote: "The general line of our liberation policy is based on the fact that a struggle for an independent Ukrainian state is a struggle against Russia, not only against Bolshevism, but against all expansionist Russian imperialism which has been typical of the Russian people. If it is replaced by another form of Russian imperialism, it will first deploy all its energy against independent Ukraine to enslave it. The Russian people are obliged to support this imperialism. It will do everything to keep Ukraine enslaved. This is clearly demonstrated in the political thinking and feelings of the Russian mass, of all Russian circles, both communist and anti-Bolshevik."

In a previous article, I showed how and why MI6 and the CIA formed an alliance with Ukrainian Banderites during the Cold War. These men and women, who should have been tried at Nuremberg, became shadow soldiers for the victors. They could pursue their anti-Russian obsession at their service.

Adoption of cereal crops key to emergence of hierarchy, shedding new light on origin of civilization - study

harvests

New research from the University of Warwick, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Reichman University, Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the Barcelona School of Economics challenges the conventional theory that the transition from foraging to farming drove the development of complex, hierarchical societies by creating agricultural surplus in areas of fertile land.

In The Origin of the State: Land Productivity or AppropriabilityLink opens in a new window?, published in the April issue of the Journal of Political Economy (Link opens in a new window) - one of the oldest and most prestigious journals in economics - Professors Joram Mayshar, Omer Moav and Luigi Pascali show that high land productivity on its own does not lead to the development of tax-levying states.

It is the adoption of cereal crops that is the key factor for the emergence of hierarchy. Professor Moav explains in this short video:-

Comment: Perhaps cereals more easily allowed for these hierarchies, but more clues to the emergence of civilization as we know it and why man adopted agriculture at all can be found in the study of catastrophism. There may be more crucial clues to be found in knowing the deleterious effect that a diet based on cereals can have on man: Also check out SOTT radio's: MindMatters: The Holy Grail, Comets, Earth Changes and Randall Carlson

A Brief Introduction to Gypsies

Gypsy Caravan

“May you wander over the face of the earth forever, never sleep twice in the same bed, never drink water twice from the same well and never cross the same river twice in a year.” - An old Gypsy curse.
First, let me tell you of my personal experiences with Gypsies. These cover a period of approximately ten years mostly in Italy, Romania, Germany and France.

One stark memory is of a Gypsy man perhaps 45 years old with what appeared to be a badly-twisted and lame leg supported by a crutch, begging for money in my piazza in Rome. It was painful to watch the man navigate the curbs and flagstones, making his way around the piazza, hoping for a few coins. He was there all morning on most days, but around noon he would pause his circular pilgrimage, stop to empty his pockets and count his bills and change, and apparently decide he had enough for a good meal. So, he would stand up, put his crutch over his shoulder and waltz over to the nice restaurant across the street for lunch.

Another fond memory is of a young Gypsy girl, perhaps only 15 or 16 years old, sitting on the steps of the basilica in the piazza with an infant wrapped in a swaddling blanket and again begging for money. Many church-goers coming and going took pity on the girl and gave generously. But now her blanket was becoming unkempt so, completely oblivious to the surrounding parishioners, she unwrapped the blanket, laid it out and re-folded it so it was again nice and neat. It was a surprise to see there was no infant there; just an empty and cleverly-folded blanket which, with the pathetic facial expressions and body language, was enough to make a good living.

Gypsy Girl

I could not recount the number of times I was approached on the street in Rome (and in other cities) by a very attractive young Gypsy woman, in her early 20s and carrying an infant. She would come very close to me, intimate and friendly, choosing one subject or another for conversation while her infant held a largish piece of cardboard between us. It didn't take long to realise the purpose of that cardboard was to block my view of her free hand reaching for my pockets. It was beautifully executed and, with the charming voice and lovely smile of a pretty young mother, suspicions were neutralised. And these girls were everywhere. I couldn't imagine the number of passports and wallets that must have disappeared due to this virtual army of young Gypsy mothers.

My second-most favorite experience was in a retail shop in Rome. I cannot recall the goods it sold, but it had tables rather than high shelves, rather like a billiard hall with 50 tables, and about the same size and height. As I was walking around, I noticed a commotion where a young Gypsy girl, perhaps 15 or 16 years old, must have been caught trying to steal something, and where several men were trying to corner her. The girl dodged and weaved, and made her way almost to the wide exit doors but two adult men were blocking the aisles leading out. I wish you could have been there to see this. The girl paused for a moment, then chose one aisle and rushed right up to the man and screeched to a halt within less than a foot from him. But at that instant, just before the man could grab her in his arms, the girl pulled up her sweater, fully exposing her lovely young breasts. The man appeared stunned, and for a split second he froze, with that fraction of a second more than sufficient time for the girl to duck under his arm and disappear into the street. I was overcome with admiration because her timing was perfect. That act was not only choreographed, but must have been rehearsed 100 times, and was as professionally-executed as any maneuver I have ever seen. It was like watching a Jackie Chan movie.

However, my favorite Gypsy story took place in Romania, the "home" of the Gypsies. I was walking around downtown Bucharest with a friend, and at an intersection we came upon a Gypsy woman perhaps 45 years old who had a small table set up on the sidewalk with flowers she was selling. And these were not single-stem roses, but elaborate and beautiful bouquets of rare and expensive flowers, all elegantly arranged. I was totally impressed. I said to my friend, "Jesus, this is a lot better than in Rome. In Rome, all the Gypsies do is beg and steal. Here, they are at least trying to earn money by doing something useful." And my friend said, "Well, it would be better if they weren't stealing the flowers from the cemeteries."

But not all events were as pleasant. I cannot eradicate from my memory the picture of a small Gypsy girl perhaps 8 or 10 years old, half-sitting and half-lying on the sidewalk begging for money. She had her dress pulled up to reveal a horribly twisted and mangled leg that appeared to have been broken in several places with none of the parts in their proper position or at a correct angle. Even worse, most of that leg had been severely burned, displaying much more ugly scar tissue than human flesh. It was wrenching to contemplate the suffering that child must have undergone at some earlier point in her life. Naturally, the donations were copious. But then I recalled seeing another young girl of similar age with essentially the same injuries in Florence some months prior. And another in Bologna, and in Venice, and Naples, and in Paris and Marseilles. And I was forced to conclude that such similar injuries to small Gypsy girls in such a number could not have been a coincidence. The injuries had to have been deliberately inflicted; there was no other possibility.

Things may have changed since I lived in Rome but, with the Gypsies being almost entirely nomadic at the time, there were no Gypsy cemeteries. No one knew who died or how or why they died, nor what happened to the body. The leader of a Gypsy Clan or a Group has more or less life and death authority over those under his command, and it would be this man who could levy a death penalty for violations - or for being elderly. He would decide when and which infants would be physically mangled to assist the community's begging efforts. It would be this man who would direct and organise all the begging and thieving categories and arrange for the instruction and training and, judging by experience, this of necessity would begin at a very young age.

Anglo-Saxon royalty and nobles ate a similar diet to land-owning peasants, new research reveals

Anglo-Saxon royalty and nobles ate a similar diet to land-owning peasants, new research reveals
Anglo-Saxon kings were mostly vegetarian before the Vikings settled, according to new studies.

Cambridge University researchers analysed more than 2,000 skeletons and found elites ate no more meat than other social groups.

One study also suggested peasants occasionally hosted lavish meat feasts for their rulers.

Researchers said the findings overturned major assumptions about early medieval English history.

Cambridge University bioarchaeologist Sam Leggett drew her conclusions after analysing chemical signatures of diets preserved in the bones of 2,023 people buried in England from the 5th to 11th Centuries.


Comment: Note that 536AD has been called 'the worst year to be alive' because of the catastrophies that were visited across vast swathes of Europe, and so it is in the context that the Anglo-Saxons - whose official history is up for debate - emerged: 536 AD: Plague, famine, drought, cold, and a mysterious fog that lasted 18 months


Comment: The Anglo-Saxon period has been overhauled in recent times and there is one school of thought positing that, following the catastrophe that reset much of Briton, the country was then governed by a number of foreign administrations; this is hinted at by the genetic evidence which shows no significant replacement by other gene pools, as well as the dearth of evidence for the Anglo-Saxon's themselves: Being Anglo-Saxon was a matter of language and culture, not genetics

Could it be that the population ate similar diets because here was simply more food to go around? Or because they were more egalitarian? Could it be because the real rulers lived abroad and under them everybody else was subservient?

Laura Knight-Jadczyk in Meteorites, Asteroids, and Comets: Damages, Disasters, Injuries, Deaths, and Very Close Calls writes:
Until that point in time, the Britons had held control of post-Roman Britain, keeping the Anglo-Saxons isolated and suppressed. After the Romans were gone, the Britons maintained the status quo, living in towns, with elected officials, and carrying on trade with the empire. After AD 536, the year reported as the "death of Arthur", the Britons, the ancient Cymric empire that at one time had stretched from Cornwall in the south to Strathclyde in the north, all but disappeared, and were replaced by Anglo-Saxons. There is much debate among scholars as to whether the Anglo-Saxons killed all of the Britons, or assimilated them. Here we must consider that they were victims of possibly many overhead cometary explosions which wiped out most of the population of Europe, plunging it into the Dark Ages which were, apparently, really DARK, atmospherically speaking.
