Meet BlackRock, The New Great Vampire Squid

BlackRock Fink

The Fed and the Banks and the Funds... all rolled into One World Company
BlackRock is a global financial giant with customers in 100 countries and its tentacles in major asset classes all over the world; and it now manages the spigots to trillions of bailout dollars from the Federal Reserve. The fate of a large portion of the country's corporations has been put in the hands of a megalithic private entity with the private capitalist mandate to make as much money as possible for its owners and investors; and that is what it has proceeded to do.

To most people, if they are familiar with it at all, BlackRock is an asset manager that helps pension funds and retirees manage their savings through "passive" investments that track the stock market. But working behind the scenes, it is much more than that. BlackRock has been called "the most powerful institution in the financial system," "the most powerful company in the world" and the "secret power." It is the world's largest asset manager and "shadow bank," larger than the world's largest bank (which is in China), with over $7 trillion in assets under direct management and another $20 trillion managed through its Aladdin risk-monitoring software. BlackRock has also been called "the fourth branch of government" and "almost a shadow government", but no part of it actually belongs to the government. Despite its size and global power, BlackRock is not even regulated as a "Systemically Important Financial Institution" under the Dodd-Frank Act, thanks to pressure from its CEO Larry Fink, who has long had "cozy" relationships with government officials.

Comment: More on BlackRock's maneuver at the start of lockdowns in mid-March by the Martens at Wall Street on Parade:
Before there was a crisis, BlackRock authored the bailout plan, now hired by 3 central banks to implement it
One of BlackRock's tentacles revealed itself in France in late December when it emerged that the very govt minister responsible for pushing a plan to 'reform' the country's pension system (i.e., to plunder it) was literally on BlackRock's payroll while doing it.

Objective:Health - Why is the World Health Organization Anti-Meat?

O:H header
In 2015 the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) pubished a report declaring red meat as "probably carcinogenic". Everyone assumes they had good reasons for making such a statement, backed up by rigorous scientific research utilizing the best available evidence. Everyone is wrong on that one.

Tim Rees, registered nutritionist, published an article (https://tim-rees.com/why-is-the-world...) that rigorously takes apart the science used to lead to the IARC's conclusions. Spoiler alert: that 'evidence' is super weak. It's difficult not to come to the conclusion that the IARC report was serving an agenda, and it isn't to make the world healthier through solid dietary advice. Rees details much of the history and the behind-the-scenes backroom deals that lead the WHO to declare war on meat.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we highlight some of the main points in Rees' article and give the O:H take.

Krakatoa And The Great Comet of 1882: Exploring The Real Engine of 'Climate Change'

Eruption of Perbuatan volcano on Krakatoa Island, 26 August 1883.
In May 1883, the captain aboard the German ship Elizabeth observed ash spewing above Krakatoa, an island in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. In the following weeks, other vessels reported hearing thunder and seeing incandescent clouds. Locals would also report earthquakes as small volcanic eruptions rumbled across the island.

Little did they know that these were the early signs of what would become one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in recorded history. Krakatoa erupted on Sunday August 26th 1883, sending volcanic dust as high as 24km (15miles) into the atmosphere. The following day on August 27th, two enormous explosions were heard as far away as Australia, with the final eruption destroying two-thirds of the island and triggering a powerful tsunami that wiped away entire settlements and was felt all the way across the Indian Ocean in South Africa. It's estimated that 36,000 people died in this natural disaster.

The eruption also had a marked impact on the global climate, sending a very large amount of sulfur dioxide (SO2) into the stratosphere, which led to a global increase in sulfuric acid concentration. This in turn increased cloud coverage that dimmed sunlight, sending global temperatures down by at least 0.4°C the following year. As submarine telegraph cables were already in use, news about the eruption was relayed rapidly across the globe, hitting the newspapers in New York, London and Paris by August 28th.


The Enemy Within: A Story of the Purge of American Intelligence

"Western Europe has only 20 to 30 more years of democracy left in it; after that it will slide, engineless and rudderless, under the surrounding sea of dictatorship, and whether the dictation comes from a politburo or a junta will not make that much difference."

- Willy Brandt (German Federal Chancellor, right before he stepped down in 1974)
Believe it or not, but the dystopic view that democracy is dead is by no measure a new idea. However, what might disturb you is where this design, in its contemporary form, really germinated from.

The idea that democracy is in a crisis and needs to be replaced with a new form of "governance" did not originate from the outcries of an oppressed people demanding their rights to a decent life. We are not presently seeing an organic, grassroots process in reforming how government, that is, democracy will be "improved" upon. Rather, what we are seeing is a controlled disintegration of the very thing we think we are trying to uphold, and this destruction has been in the works for over 45 years.

It is no coincidence that Samuel P. Huntington is very fond of the Willy Brandt quote "prophesising" the end of democracy (which was used at the beginning of both his books 'The Crisis of Democracy' and 'Disaffected Democracies'), that is after all his purpose in life...to see to it that that prophecy comes true.

In this paper I will go through how the Henry Kissinger crew successfully purged the last significant remnants of decency within the CIA and reshaped the government structure into the Deep State that we see it grotesquely throbbing as today. In this story, we will see how those prominent figureheads who prophesise the "end of democracy" have been the very orchestrators of its destruction.


RCMP Whistleblowers Leak Evidence That Nova Scotia Shooter Was Undercover POLICE AGENT

Comment: This is a first. The organizers of mass shooting false-flags usually keep a tight leash on subsequent investigations. But late last week RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) sources in Canada essentially exposed as fact what seemed apparent to us at the time: the shooter(s) were driving around Nova Scotia terrorizing and killing random citizens using 'pretend' cop cars, 'pretend' cop guns and 'pretend' cop uniforms because they were either themselves cops or because they had successfully infiltrated the system with help from 'on high'.

Police sources say the killer's withdrawal of $475,000 was highly irregular, and how an RCMP 'agent' would get money
Gabriel Wortman

A still from a video showing Gabriel Wortman in the Brink's yard on March 30, 2020.
The withdrawal of $475,000 in cash by the man who killed 22 Nova Scotians in April matches the method the RCMP uses to send money to confidential informants and agents, sources say.

Gabriel Wortman, who is responsible for the largest mass killing in Canadian history, withdrew the money from a Brink's depot in Dartmouth, N.S., on March 30, stashing a carryall filled with hundred-dollar bills in the trunk of his car.

According to a source close to the police investigation the money came from CIBC Intria, a subsidiary of the chartered bank that handles currency transactions.

Sources in both banking and the RCMP say the transaction is consistent with how the RCMP funnels money to its confidential informants and agents, and is not an option available to private banking customers.

The RCMP has repeatedly said that it had no "special relationship" with Wortman.

Comment: He was doing Mountie things... because he was a Mountie. A messed up one certainly, but one paid good money by RCMP HQ for devious ends.

Fair play to these Mountie whistleblowers for speaking out and releasing video footage proving Wortman was an agent. They must know - or at least sense - that they're 'poking a hornet's nest' by blowing a cover story that likely masks the fact that the Canadian govt took advantage of the Covid-19 lockdown to sneak in a massacre of its own people in April to justify a crackdown on gun ownership.

Some Data-driven Questions About 'Excess Deaths' For Lockdown Apologists

empty london street lockdown
We now have mortality data for the first few months of 2020 for many countries, and, as you might expect, there were steep increases associated with the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in each one.

Surprisingly, however, these increases did not begin before the lockdowns were imposed, but after. Moreover, in almost every case, they began immediately after. Often, mortality numbers were on a downward trend before suddenly reversing course after lockdowns were decreed.

This is an astonishing finding. But before I discuss its full import, and pose some questions to those who still defend the utility of lockdowns, I want to present the data that proves it.

Here's a series of charts by the Financial Times showing overall mortality and "deaths in excess of normal levels" in 2020 for a number of countries:

Comment: In short, they did the reverse of what they said the lockdowns were for: they spiked what would otherwise have been a 'normal, seasonal' curve by prematurely killing off hundreds of thousands of elderly and immune-compromised people.

Carlson: A Democrat-backed Mob Has Taken Power by Force. Republicans Rolled Over, so Why Bother Voting For Them?

tucker carlson republicans voting
Here's a segment from Carlson's last show of the week (Friday 19th June).

He has been batting them out of the park for some time now - especially since the Establishment-approved 'color revolution' kicked off in the US at the end of May.

While Conservative Black activist Candace Owens encourages Black Americans to 'leave the Democrat plantation' and vote Republican instead, the real death-knell for the 'forces of permanent revolution' would occur if or when ALL Americans 'walk off the entire plantation'.

Lambasting the failure of Republican and 'conservative' leaders to stand up to the mob, Carlson concludes this segment by recommending to his (considerable) conservative audience that they no longer vote for the GOP. This crisis, he says, has "exposed them for who they are. And now it's time to find new leaders."

Study of All-cause Mortality During Covid-19: No Plague, But Likely Mass Homicide by Government Response

elderly nursing home covid-19
Summary / Abstract

The latest data of all-cause mortality by week does not show a winter-burden mortality that is statistically larger than for past winters. There was no plague. However, a sharp "COVID peak" is present in the data, for several jurisdictions in Europe and the USA. This all-cause-mortality "COVID peak" has unique characteristics:
  • Its sharpness, with a full-width at half-maximum of only approximately 4 weeks;
  • Its lateness in the infectious-season cycle, surging after week-11 of 2020, which is unprecedented for any large sharp-peak feature;
  • The synchronicity of the onset of its surge, across continents, and immediately following the WHO declaration of the pandemic;
  • and its USA state-to-state absence or presence for the same viral ecology on the same territory, being correlated with nursing home events and government actions rather than any known viral strain discernment.
These "COVID peak" characteristics, and a review of the epidemiological history, and of relevant knowledge about viral respiratory diseases, lead me to postulate that the "COVID peak" results from an accelerated mass homicide of immune-vulnerable individuals, and individuals made more immune-vulnerable, by government and institutional actions, rather than being an epidemiological signature of a novel virus, irrespective of the degree to which the virus is novel from the perspective of viral speciation.

Comment: Also by Dr Rancourt:
The Science is Conclusive: Masks and Respirators do NOT Prevent Transmission of Viruses
His analysis of this past winter's all-cause mortality rates, and his conclusion, is in line with ours:
Everything You Think You Know About Coronavirus
And so, to summarize the 'Covid-19 pandemic' once more...

For two/three months the WHO, the media, and whichever 'secret cabal' controls both, shoved in everyone's faces the fact that old people die when they reach the end of their lives. In the process of 'making everyone realize the horror' of this fact, irresponsible (and frankly pathological) elites willfully enjoined the general population to accelerate the deaths of tens of thousands of elderly and immune-compromised people, who died alone when separated from loved ones and abandoned by their regular healthcare practitioners.

Govt policy decisions - specifically, ONE 'central' govt policy decision, one followed by most Western govts, along with a few others - generated a 'bottleneck of deaths' by temporarily lifting the normal healthcare options available to society's most vulnerable. These vulnerable people then died in droves, earlier than they would otherwise have done, and their deaths provided the media with images of 'overflowing morgues', crematoria, etc. from around the world.

Ironically then, the declared purpose of the lockdown - to 'save the elderly' by 'flattening the curve' - produced precisely the opposite outcome: the elderly were killed off, thereby artificially and precipitately spiking the otherwise flatter regular winter season curve.


Do Covid-19 Statistics Represent 'Excess Deaths' or State-sponsored 'Homicide'?

coronavirus nursing homes covid-19
Throughout the course of the COVID Operation, we have seen that COVID "attribution" data has been unreliable and manipulated. World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) changed Cause of Death guidelines. Financial incentives are part of the manipulated equation, unvalidated tests are used, "presumptive COVID "cases" count as "COVID cases", distinctions between death WITH COVID-19 and deaths BY/FROM COVID-19 are not being made. Importantly, comorbidities such as age, cardiovascular health etc. are largely negated as the spotlight burns on COVID-19. All of these biases corrupt the data.

Rigorous epidemiological studies, on the other hand, rely exclusively on "All Cause" mortality data. (1) Using "All Cause" data, Dr. Denis Rancourt demonstrates in "All-cause mortality during COVID-19: No plague and a likely signature of mass homicide by government response" that "the total number of winter-burden all-cause 'excess' deaths for the season ending in 2020 (area above the summer baseline) is not statistically larger than for past years, and it remains to be seen how low the summer 2020 trough will be."

Comment: Professor Rancourt makes a compelling case, and the news backs him up.

MindMatters: Try Not To Lie: The Value Of Honesty With The Self And Others

unpleasant truths
As the old adage goes, "The truth shall set you free." But if that's true then why do we quite often have such a difficult time of being honest with ourselves? And just as importantly, why do we struggle so much in being honest with others? Programmed or wired to deny that we have personal shortcomings - or fearing the consequences of honest communication about others' failings - we quite often opt for the easy out, keeping things to ourselves and attempting to avoid the potential pain and discord that may come of telling it like it is. Like a festering wound, the lies we tell ourselves and accept from others infects the very quality and well being of our selves and the lives of those around us.

On this week's MindMatters we discuss why one should have less fear of truthful communication - and a greater willingness to be honest. While there is always a risk of hurt, the uncertainty of misunderstanding, and the discomfort of vulnerability - what is easily overlooked is the greater meaning, understanding, and intimacy that may be added to one's life and relationships - if we were only more honest (assuming the people around you share this value). At at time in human existence when we are struggling to make sense of complex and rapidly occurring world-changing events, how can we achieve a semblance of true understanding when, at square one, we are dishonest with ourselves and the souls immediately surrounding us?
