One country has killed ‘millions,’ but Biden is ‘not interested,’ says expert | WND

China expert and Gatestone Institute advisory-board member Gordon Chang is condemning Joe Biden for his failure to fulfill the most basic duty of an American president: protect Americans.

“Biden’s failure to confront China, whether on coronavirus or fentanyl deaths, means he is derelict in discharging his most fundamental constitutional duty: protecting the American people from foreign attack,” he wrote in a piece published at the institute’s website.

“Biden does not care about either coronavirus or fentanyl deaths. He is allowing a foreign power to murder Americans with no penalty whatsoever.”

Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” cited Biden’s actions when he “smirked and walked away” from a reporter wanting to know why he has not asked Beijing “to do more to be transparent on the origins” of COVID-19.

“China’s coronavirus has now killed more than 806,400 Americans, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. China lied about the contagiousness of COVID-19 and then, while locking down China, pressured other countries to take arrivals from its soil without restrictions or quarantines. The spread of the disease outside the People’s Republic, therefore, was the inevitable result of Chinese policies. In other words, China’s leaders have now deliberately killed more than 5.3 million people outside their country,” he explained.

But Biden failed to raise those concerns during his telephone calls or “virtual meeting” with Chinese chief Xi Jinping, he said.

He said while Biden apparently understands China is a “bad actor” on COVID-19, insisting the world “deserves answers,” still he is “not interested in getting to the bottom of the matter.”

“Why? There are Chinese business links with Biden’s family and with members of his administration and doubtless he wants to accommodate campaign donors wishing to do business in China, but most fundamentally the President, despite everything, speaks as if he has never let go of his decades-old benign view of the nature of Chinese communism,” Chang explained.

Biden, in fact, took his son Hunter along with him on Air Force Two when he was vice president several years ago and traveled to China, and shortly after Hunter Biden was revealed to be involved in a multi-million dollar deal with Chinese interests. Evidence has since surfaced suggesting that Joe Biden was in line for a percentage of some of Hunter Biden’s deals.

Chang said Joe Biden apparently sees China as a “competitor,” but China is setting itself up as much more.

“China … no longer accepts American sovereignty — or the sovereignty of any other society. In his speech on July 1, marking the centennial of China’s ruling organization, Xi Jinping promised in a much-publicized phrase to ‘crack skulls and spill blood,’ but in more chilling words he said this: ‘The Communist Party of China and the Chinese people, with their bravery and tenacity, solemnly proclaim to the world that the Chinese people are not only good at taking down the old world but also good at building a new one,'” Chang explained.

That’s a reprise of the attitude of the Chinese imperial-era system “in which emperors believed they not only had the Mandate of Heaven to rule tianxia — all under Heaven — but they were also compelled by Heaven to do so,” Chang explained.

While Biden apparently considers China another influential world stage player, “he has a hard time comprehending the ruthlessness of the Chinese regime or the comprehensive nature of its assault on the international system. The Communist Party, among other things, is breaking apart its neighbors, proliferating the world’s most dangerous weapons, supporting terrorists, and stealing hundreds of billions of dollars of intellectual property a year.”

“What Biden fails to understand is that Chinese communism is in a fight to the finish with the U.S. — whether the U.S. thinks so or not,” Chang wrote.

He cited COVID-19, which, he said, whether released intentionally or not has taught the People’s Liberation Army how it could unleash the “ultimate genocide.”

“The next disease from China could be a civilization-killer. China’s military is working on the next generation of pathogens, a new kind of biological warfare of ‘specific ethnic genetic attacks.’ In other words, Chinese researchers are developing viruses, microbes, and germs that leave China’s people immune but kill everyone else,” he warned.

While the world “urgently needs to deter Xi Jinping from spreading the next disease,” Chang warned, “Biden’s failure so far to hold Xi accountable has given the Chinese a big green light to launch attacks that could kill Americans in unprecedented numbers.”

The Fed’s Catch-22 Taper Is A Weapon, Not A Policy Error | ZeroHedge News

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.us,

Back in 2018 leading up to Christmas the Federal Reserve began publicly flirting with the notion of ending asset purchases, reducing their balance sheet and committing to an all around taper of stimulus. I wrote about it extensively at the time along with my position that the Fed could and would taper, at least for a short period, which would lead to an accelerated crash of stocks. This did in fact happen, but as we all know the Fed reversed course not long after.

This reversal was seen by many as proof that the Fed would “never” actually pursue a full blown taper and that stimulus measures would go on forever. I believed it could be a dry run for a more aggressive taper event down the road. I argued that the fed would continue stimulus until stagflation became evident to the public, and then a careful game of scapegoating would have to be played and another taper would commence.

It is also important to understand that there were many in the economic media that also argued that because the dollar is the preeminent world reserve currency the central bank could print dollars perpetually without inflationary consequences. This notion became a basic fundamental of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT).

Of course, MMT is utter nonsense. There are ALWAYS consequences for overt money creation even for world reserve currencies. It doesn’t matter if you try to price your national currency without comparisons to foreign currencies; under globalism and economic interdependency the velocity of money matters. If a country is printing with wild abandon, those dollars are going to buy less labor, less production and less goods overseas. Nothing defeats the laws of supply and demand, not even strategic debt creation.

We are now at that stage again where price inflation tied to money printing is clashing with the stock market’s complete reliance on stimulus to stay afloat. There are some that continue to claim the Fed will never sacrifice the markets by tapering. I say the Fed does not actually care, it is only waiting for the right time to pull the plug on the US economy.

In previous articles I have described the Federal Reserve as an “ideological suicide bomber.” There are some people out there that still do not grasp this concept and it boggles my mind to see how they rationalize many of the fed’s actions, as if the people running the fed are “oblivious” to the damage they are doing.

First and foremost, no, the Fed is not motivated by profits, at least not primarily. The Fed is able to print wealth at will, they don’t care about profits – They care about power and centralization. Would they sacrifice “the golden goose” of US markets in order to gain more power and full bore globalism? Absolutely. Would central bankers sacrifice the dollar and blow up the Fed as an institution in order to force a global currency system on the masses? There is no doubt; they’ve put the US economy at risk in the past in order to get more centralization.

At the onset of the Great Depression, the Fed increased interest rates into weakness after years of artificially stimulating markets with low cost debt. This prolonged the deflationary crash for many years. It was not until many decades later when former Fed chair Ben Bernanke gave a speech celebrating economist Milton Friedman’s 90th birthday that a central bank official finally admitted that the organization was culpable for the Depression debacle.

In short, according to Friedman and Schwartz, because of institutional changes and misguided doctrines, the banking panics of the Great Contraction were much more severe and widespread than would have normally occurred during a downturn.

Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You’re right, we did it. We’re very sorry. But thanks to you, we won’t do it again.” – Ben Bernanke, 2002

What Ben Bernanke did not admit to was that the engineered deflationary crisis greatly benefited the allies of the Fed – The international corporate bankers. Companies like JP Morgan and Chase National were suddenly in a prime position to seize unlimited power in the US. But how?

Not many Americans today realize that a hundred years ago banking was highly decentralized. In fact, there were thousands of smaller community banks all across the country back then that were not attached to titanic banks like JP Morgan. One of the biggest coups of the Great Depression was that at least 9000 of these small banks were destroyed by the crash or absorbed by the international banks. There was no longer any local competition to the major corporations, they now dominated all lending markets.

If you wanted a loan or if you wanted to open a savings account after the depression, you would have to go through a small handful of mega-conglomerates. Complete centralization of finance had been achieved and the Fed helped to make this happen. Was this purely coincidence and negligence on the part of the Fed, or, did they know exactly what they were doing?

To be clear, the Catch-22 of taper vs stimulus and stagflation vs deflationary collapse is only a trap for the American public, it is NOT a trap for the Fed.

Again, they don’t ultimately care about the survival of the US economy. They’ve been destroying our financial system and currency slowly for over 100 years and they have been speeding up the process ever since the crash of 2008; why would they suddenly want to save it now? The Fed may taper or they may not. I predict they will once again officially taper at least for a time. Whether they continue to hold to that taper and for how long is a separate question. In either case, the dollar’s purchasing power still comes under threat and price inflation will still be the result.

If the Fed sticks with asset purchases and ultra-low interest rates, then the current stagflationary crisis will continue to grow. If Biden gets his “Build Back Better Plan” then expect even more price inflation as infrastructure projects turn into helicopter money much like the covid lockdowns turned into months of covid checks. This stimulus only served to undermine the labor market (To this day many states still have some covid welfare programs in place on top of regular unemployment benefits, which has fueled worker shortages – Only in the past month are all benefits starting to run out).

Helicopter money also leads to an explosion in demand for goods which then leads to higher prices as manufacturing cannot keep up. That is to say, more dollars chasing less goods leads to higher prices.

Furthermore, the central bank is the largest investor in US bonds. If the Fed raises interest rates into weakness and tapers asset purchases, then we may see a repeat of 2018 when the yield curve started to flatten. This means that short term treasury bonds will end up with the same yield as long term bonds and investment in long term bonds will fall. A dumping of long term bonds causes a decline in currency value and a flood of dollars back to the US. Result? Inflation.

No matter what the Fed does the consequence will be inflationary/stagflationary. The only difference is that if they taper there will also be an immediate decline in stocks and the overall crash will happen faster. The presumption by some is that a reversal in stocks will lure more money into the dollar, and this might happen for a short period of time. However, as mentioned if the yield curve flattens or there is instability in Treasury bonds there will be no saving the dollar either.

The bigger question is, why would the central bank trigger this crisis deliberately?

The Fed does not serve the purposes of the US, it serves the purposes of international banks and the agenda of globalism. It is openly admitted that national central banks take their marching orders from an entity called the Bank for International Settlements, and this includes the Fed. The BIS is a consortium of central banks from around the world that dictate overall central bank policy. If you have ever wondered how it’s possible for most national central banks to change policy in unison the way they tend to do instead of all of them reacting differently to economic problems, this is how.

There is a very interesting article published by Harpers Magazine in 1983 called ‘Ruling The World Of Money’ which I recommend people read if they want more insight into how the BIS operates and controls the decisions of regular central banks.

Everything the Fed does is to further globalist goals, not American goals or the American economy. The Fed will do as it’s ordered to do. And how do globalists benefit from America’s decline? Let’s not forget about the “Great Reset” agenda which the World Economic Forum, the IMF and other institutions have been so vocal about since the beginning of the pandemic. What the globalists want is to force the public to accept a completely centralized one world system based on socialist ideals, and this will include a one world currency that supplants the dollar. They will use any means at their disposal to get it, whether it be a pandemic crisis or an economic crisis. In fact, they are perfectly willing to engineer both.

It should be noted that the IMF and World bank recently held a “simulation” (war game) of just such a crisis. The game involved a cyber attack on global financial institutions which would then lead to economic collapse. I warned about the propensity for globalist simulations to play out in real life in my article ‘Cyberpolygon: Will The Next Globalist War Game Lead To Another Convenient Catastrophe?’ Even the covid pandemic seems to have been simulated only a couple of months before the real thing happened, as we saw with Event 201 held by the WEF and the Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation.

The covid panic that the establishment has tried to create is waning, at least in the US. I continue to see evidence of their plan failing in America as almost half of all states are now blocking the mandates and Biden’s executive orders are meeting stiff resistance in the courts. Any attempt to actually enforce vax passports or forced vaccination here will lead to a war that the covid cult will lose, it’s that simple. So, the globalists are going to need a different crisis to create further “opportunities”, and an economic crisis would definitely fit the bill.

It’s time for alternative economists to STOP looking at the Fed as a self serving institution struggling to keep the US economy propped up. This is not reality. It is also time to stop pretending as if the Fed is bumbling about and doesn’t have a clue. These people are not stupid, they know exactly what they are doing. The Fed will destroy our economy if they believe the timing is right to create a new world order out of the chaos. When they pull the plug (and they will one way or the other), they need to be held accountable as conspirators seeking to sabotage, not as dunces that “made mistakes.”

Isn’t it strange that no matter how many financial catastrophes central bankers have their hands in they never seem to face any consequences and always seem to enjoy more power afterwards instead of less? Even when the institutions they operate collapse, the bankers themselves always land on their feet with the goals of globalism intact. This needs to end, and the the only way to make that happen is to visit punishment on the people behind the banks for their treachery and conspiracy instead of chalking it all up to gullibility or simple greed.

Indwelling Sin In Believers – Part 2: Is There Hope? — The Aquila Report

Rooted in Romans 8:13, Owen contends that the only true means of mortification is the Holy Spirit. He writes, “He only is sufficient for this work; all ways and means without him are as a thing of naught; and he is the great efficient of it, he works in us as he pleases.” This truth is paramount to understanding Owen’s conception of mortification. While it is true to say that mortification is something that we do, it is more accurate to say that mortification is something that is done in us. Mortification is worked in us by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Read Part 1

Owen, in the opening chapter of his work The Mortification of Sin states that, “The vigor, and power, and comfort of our spiritual life depends on the mortification of the deeds of the flesh.”[19] Owen’s goal for this work, according to Andrew Thompson, was to, “Escape from the region of public debate and to provide something of general use” for the people of his day.[20]

The Mortification of Sin, then, is a deeply practical and useful devotional work rather than an academic and polemical tome. The textual focus of this work is Romans 8:13, “For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” In this verse Owen finds both the necessity and the means of mortification. The necessity of mortification is found in the fact that to continue to live according to the flesh leads to spiritual death. As Owen puts it, “Be killing sin or it will be killing you.”[21]

The means of mortification is found in the fact that it is by the Spirit alone that deeds of the body are put to death. In Owen’s words, “Not to be daily employing the Spirit and new nature for the mortifying of sin, is to neglect that excellent succor which God hath given us against our greatest enemy.”[22] We will deal with these two aspects of mortification in turn.

The Necessity of Mortification

Owen writes in his chapter on the necessity of mortification, “There is not a day but sin foils or is foiled, prevails or is prevailed on; and it will be so whilst we live in this world.”[23] For the Christian, the necessity of mortification, of killing sin, is founded in the fact that our enemy never sleeps and never grows weary. As Owen goes on, “there is no safety against it but in a constant warfare.”[24] The Christian life is one of this constant warfare, because the battle is always raging in our hearts. As we have already established, this battle is between the law of sin and the law of the Spirit. We do not fight in the hope to win the ultimate victory, but because we know that the ultimate victory has been won by Jesus Christ.

Now, what does it mean that sin does not grow weary in its warfare? It means that it does not rest until it has captured our whole heart and led us into the most grievous sin.  As Owen writes, “Sin aims always at the utmost; every time it rises up to tempt or entice, might it have its own course, it would go out to the utmost sin in that kind. Every unclean thought or glance would be adultery if it could; every covetous desire would be oppression, every thought of unbelief would be atheism, might it grow to its head.”[25]

This is the warning to the Christian that is one of the bases of the necessity of mortification: sin will destroy all of us if we do not mortify it by the Spirit. As Owen goes on, “When poor creatures will take blow after blow, wound after wound, foil after foil, and never rouse themselves to a vigorous opposition, can they expect anything but to be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin, and that their souls should bleed to death?”[26] Neglect of mortification is neglect of the soul. For the Christian, the mortification of sin is necessary because sin does not grow weary and will have all of them if it can.

Mortification is necessary for both negative positive reasons. As we have seen, it is necessary to avoid the negative consequences unmortified sin. But mortification is also necessary to achieve the positive vision that God has set forth for his people in his Word. As Owen writes, “It is our duty to be perfecting holiness in the fear of God, to be growing in grace every day, to be renewing our inward man day by day. Now this cannot be done without the daily mortifying of sin. Sin sets its strength against every act of holiness.”[27]

God has set apart a people for himself by the blood of Christ. Those people, his church, are called to pursue holiness, to grow in grace, and to live lives that are set apart for God. This positive vision for the Christian life, the pursuit of God, is impossible without the identification and mortification of indwelling sin. So even as the Christian pursues mortification to avoid being overtaken and destroyed, the Christian should pursue mortification with the goal of living a life set apart for God, a life of thanksgiving and holiness.

The Means of Mortification  

Rooted in Romans 8:13, Owen contends that the only true means of mortification is the Holy Spirit. He writes, “He only is sufficient for this work; all ways and means without him are as a thing of naught; and he is the great efficient of it, he works in us as he pleases.”[28] This truth is paramount to understanding Owen’s conception of mortification. While it is true to say that mortification is something that we do, it is more accurate to say that mortification is something that is done in us. Mortification is worked in us by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Owen establishes this point in contrast to a Catholic understanding of mortification. In this, we see the Reformed and Protestant nature of Owen’s theology of indwelling sin. He writes, “The greatest part of popish religion, of that which looks most like religion in their profession, consists in mistaken ways and means of mortification.”[29]

Why is the Catholic understanding of mortification mistaken? According to Owen, “Because those things that appointed of God as means are not used by them in their due place and order – such as are praying fasting, watching, meditation, and the like. These have their use in the business at hand; but whereas they are all to be looked on as streams, they look on them as the fountain.”[30]

For Owen, Catholic mortification is mistaken because it looks at the streams of mortification as the fountain. This is to say that the Holy Spirit does indeed work through secondary means (such as prayer, fasting, and meditation) but these secondary means are never to be understood as the primary means. Prayer, fasting, and meditation are nothing in themselves if not empowered by the Holy Spirit and by faith.

According to Owen, these duties, done in themselves do nothing but subdue the flesh, leaving sin unharmed. He writes, “Attempting rigid mortification, they fell upon the natural man instead of the corrupt old man, upon the body wherein we live instead of the body of death.”[31] This rigid mortification refers to the ascetic practices common to the monastic movement and broader Catholicism.

The point that Owen is trying to make with this statement is that ascetic practices, while they can be helpful, will only ever mortify the body if done in themselves. One can train themselves to abstain from sexual pleasure but leave the sin of lust unmortified. One can train themselves to go without food but leave the sin of gluttony unmortified. This leaves the Christian in a tragic state. As Owen writes,

“Men are galled with the guilt of sin that hath prevailed over them; they instantly promise to themselves and God that they will do so no more; they watch over themselves, and pray for season, until this heat waxes cold, and the sense of sin is worn off; and so mortification goes also, and sin returns to its former dominion. Duties are excellent food for the unhealthy soul; but they are no medicine for a sick soul. He that turns his meat into his medicine must expect no great operation.”[32]

The tragic state of the Christian left to themselves is that none of their duties can avail them mortification. As Owen goes on, “A soul under the power of conviction from the law is pressed to fight against sin, but hath no strength for the combat.”[33] The Christian is totally dependent on the power of the Holy Spirit for the mortification of sin.

Owen gives us two reasons why mortification is the work of the Holy Spirit.

First, because he is the one who God promised in Ezekiel would be given to us to take away the heart of stone and to give us a heart of flesh.[34] This is the eschatological hope of Scripture, referenced by Owen in Indwelling Sin in Believers, that God would place his law in our hearts and would give us a new heart so that we may worship and obey him rightly. This is the work of the Holy Spirit.

Second, he writes, “We have all our mortification from the gift of Christ, and all the gifts of Christ are communicated to us and given us by the Spirit of Christ.”[35] This means that our mortification must be from the Holy Spirit because it is he who communicates to us what Christ has won for us. And mortification was won for us by the merits of Christ.[36]

How does the Holy Spirit work mortification in us?

First, he renews us and causes us to abound in grace and the fruits that are contrary to the law of sin. Owen cites Galatians 5:22-24 in support of this. It reads: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” The Holy Spirit causes these fruits, which are contrary to the law of sin (the flesh), to abound in our hearts so that that the power of sin is weakened. As Owen explains, “This renewing of us by the Holy Ghost, as it is called, is one great way of mortification; he causes us to grow, thrive, flourish, and abound in those graces which are contrary, opposite, and destructive to all the fruits of the flesh.”[37]

Second, the Holy Spirit drives our lusts and sins out of our heart. As Owen points out, in Isaiah 4:4 he is called a Spirit of judgement and burning which “washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and cleansed the bloodstains of Jerusalem”.[38]

Finally, the Holy Spirit, according to Owen, “Brings the cross of Christ into the heart of a sinner by faith, and gives us communion with Christ in his death and fellowship in his sufferings.”[39]

Owen makes a point here that is essential to understanding his conception of the Gospel, the Trinity, and the order of salvation. For Owen, and many other Protestant reformers, the Holy Spirit is the person of the Trinity who applies to the heart of the believer the accomplishments of Christ.

In Christ we are justified and made righteous by his perfect life, innocent death, and resurrection. By the Spirit we are born again, given the gifts of faith and repentance, and given the seal of God’s presence in our hearts. This understanding of the Father as the author of our salvation, the Son as the accomplisher of our salvation, and the Holy Spirit as the one who applies our salvation is one of key truths which springs from Sola Gratia and Sola Christus Reformation theology.

So, if the question is: is the mortification of each and every sin possible? The answer, Scripturally, is a deep and resounding yes! And the answer is yes because of the Spirit of Christ.

One might ask: why we are commanded in Romans 8:13 to mortify our sin if it is the Holy Spirit who does this work in us? Owen’s answer to this question is rooted in Philippians 2:12-13, in which Paul instructs us to, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”

The Holy Spirit, according to Owen, “Works in us and upon us…so as to preserve our own liberty and free obedience…he works in us and with us, not against us or without us; so that his assistance is an encouragement as to the facilitating of the work, and no occasion of neglect as to the work itself.”[40] So, even as we work at mortification, in obedience and faith, God by his Spirit is working, helping, and empowering our every energy and effort.

There are several activities that aid in the mortification of sin that Owen reviews in his work:

  • First, the Christian should consider and meditate deeply on both the holiness of God and the wickedness of their own sin. Owen explains, “Be much in thoughtfulness of the excellency of the majesty of God and thine infinite, inconceivable distance from him. Many thoughts of it cannot but fill thee with a sense of thine own vileness, which strikes deep at the root of any indwelling sin.”[41] This activity is one that should bring the Christian into a state of humility, of dependence on God, and of hatred for their indwelling sin. It is only when we are made low and our sin is hated as our enemy that we are open to receive the Gospel work of Spirit-wrought mortification.
  • Second, the Christian should set their faith in Christ and his merits for the mortification of their sin. Owen explains, “Set faith at work on Christ for the killing of thy sin. His blood is the great sovereign remedy for sin-sick souls. Live in this, and thou wilt die a conqueror; yes, thou wilt, through the good providence of God, live to see thy lust dead at thy feet.”[42] This act of faith brings us into a position of dependence on Christ and calls us to consider all the provision for mortification given to us in Christ. In faith, as Owen writes, the Christian should, “Raise up thy heart by faith to an expectation of relief from Christ.”[43] This position of humility, faith, and dependence is the ground on which the Holy Spirit pours his life-giving water. Through these Spirit-empowered activities, by prayer and petition, the mortification of indwelling sin is worked.

Indwelling Sin In Believers – Part 2: Is There Hope? — The Aquila Report

Martin Luther on Preparing to Die — The Aquila Report

On the other hand, we should not focus on death when it is close but rather should focus on Christ. This is because a large part of the terror of death comes from the awareness of our sins and our guilt before God. The unbeliever has no alternative but to hope that there is no God on the other side to judge him. The Christian, though, has a different kind of certainty, and he can focus on Christ rather than on his sin.

A few years ago, I received this unexpected request from one of my church members with multiple sclerosis: “When you have time, could you please do a Bible study on how to prepare for death?” This person knew that her condition was incurable and, although death still seemed a fairly long way off, she was anxious to receive advice on how to face it. I was taken aback by that request, but I should not have been. This was a very sensible idea. Why wouldn’t every church member be interested in such a Bible study? Yet, I could not remember the last time I preached or heard a sermon on that topic. The Bible is very upfront about the reality of death but also very clear that it is possible to die well. It is perhaps significant that one of the best-known Hebrew words in the Old Testament, the word shalom, which we associate with peace and well-being, first appears in the context of death (Gen. 15:15). Knowing how we may die “in peace” should be an important concern for us all.

As I reflected on this, I was struck again about how common that theme was in Christian sermons and devotional literature until about two hundred years ago. Toward the end of the nineteenth century, decisive breakthroughs in medical research, such as the discovery of germs and anesthetics, made death and pain feel more distant. For the first time in history, being healthy became the norm and being ill the exception. For most people in history, death was an ever-present companion. John Calvin, for example, gives a vivid description of how precarious life felt in his time:

Innumerable are the ills which beset human life, and present death in as many different forms. Not to go beyond ourselves, since the body is a receptacle, even the nurse, of a thousand diseases, a man cannot move without carrying along with him many forms of destruction. . . . Then, in what direction soever you turn, all surrounding objects not only may do harm, but almost openly threaten and seem to present immediate death. Go on board a ship, you are but a plank’s breadth from death. Mount a horse, the stumbling of a foot endangers your life. Walk along the streets, every tile upon the roofs is a source of danger . . . I say nothing of poison, treachery, robbery, some of which beset us at home, others follow us abroad.1

It is therefore not surprising that Christians felt the need to be trained in the ars moriendi (art of dying). In fact, the idea that the whole of life is a preparation to die was commonplace. As events in the world sometimes bring death considerably closer to us, I believe it is urgent for the church to recover the Christian ars moriendi. What we need in particular is not so much rehearsing general theological truths about death but precisely what that church member asked me: some practical advice on how to prepare ourselves for it. The Protestant Reformers and seventeenth-century Puritans can help us with this because they knew how to face death and how to think about it in concrete terms. They wrote a great deal on the topic but, for the sake of brevity, I will focus on Martin Luther, whose teaching on the matter sums up the Protestant ars moriendi.2

Luther’s view of the Christian life is attractive because of its concrete character. Luther was not simply a theologian of more abstract concepts such as justification but a pastor who preached and wrote to human beings of flesh and blood facing much hardship and who were never far away from death. Luther himself, like his contemporaries, did not expect to live for very long, and he thought he would soon die from illness or martyrdom. It is therefore not surprising that he preached and wrote about death throughout his life. As early as 1519, when he was only thirty-six, he wrote a series of exhortations for his sovereign, Elector Frederick the Wise, who was seriously ill.3 In that same year, he preached a famous sermon on preparing to die, and he no doubt preached many times on the subject. Practical considerations about dying are spread through his writings. We also have fairly precise information about Luther’s last days and his own death that allows us to know that he put into practice what he preached.

Luther can help us because he teaches us how to think properly about death both throughout our lives and when it is near. His insights can be summed up under four headings.

BE CONFIDENT BUT REALISTIC

First, Luther recognizes that death is frightening even for Christians. He is not so foolish as to believe that the fear of death can be neutralized by stoic fortitude, as certain atheists try to convince themselves. This is a conviction that is often found in his writings. For example, in a sermon on 1 Corinthians 15 preached on October 6, 1532, he says: “The heathens have wisely said ‘he is a fool who is afraid of death, for through such fear he loses his own life.’ This would be true if only a man could act on the advice. . . . They advise that nothing is better than simply cast all such fear aside, to rid the mind of it and to think: why worry about it? When we are dead, we are dead. That is certainly disposing of the matter in short order and completely extinguishing God’s wrath, hell and damnation!”4

Or again, in one of his table talks: “I do not like to see people glad to die. . . . Great saints do not like to die. The fear of death is natural, for death is a penalty; therefore, it is something sad. According to the spirit one gladly dies; but according to the flesh, it is said ‘another shall carry you where you would not.’ ”5

Yet, because Christ defeated death, Luther also knows that the death of a Christian is fundamentally different. As he says to Frederick the Wise in one of his fourteen consolations: “The death of a Christian is to be looked upon as the brazen serpent of Moses. It does have the appearance of a serpent; but it is entirely without life, without motion, without poison, without sting. . . . We do resemble those who die, and the outward appearance of our death is not different from that of others. But the thing itself is different nevertheless because for us death is dead.”6

This is why the Christian is able to prepare for death in a meaningful way. However, this preparation should take place throughout the whole of life, and this leads to Luther’s next insight.

THINK OF DEATH AT THE RIGHT TIME

This is perhaps the most insightful piece of advice and the most challenging for us today. The issue is not simply how to think about death but when. Luther’s oft-repeated advice is that we should familiarize ourselves with death while we are still healthy, while death itself still seems far away. Conversely, we should not stare at death when it is near us but rather focus on Christ. Now it is clear that most people today—sadly, including many Christians—do precisely the opposite. They studiously ignore death while healthy and are caught unprepared when it comes.

On the contrary, Luther understood that spiritual growth is a slow process that takes a lifetime and that facing death is something that has to be learned. This is why he encourages us to think often of our own mortality, to reflect on its cause and consequences and on its ultimate outcome for the Christian—the resurrection of the body. One interesting suggestion on how to do that is to meditate on our own death and when we pass cemeteries.

Lockdown Policies and Mask Mandates Linked With Lower IQ in Children | The Epoch Times

The nation’s recent lockdown policies and mask mandates will create a generation of children who exhibit lower IQs and signs of social brain damage, according to a clinical psychiatrist for children and adolescents.

Dr. Mark McDonald cited an Aug. 11 study by Brown University (pdf) that found that “children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic,” during an interview with host Cindy Drukier on a Dec. 25 episode of NTD’s “The Nation Speaks.” NTD is a sister media outlet of The Epoch Times.

The masks, “Zoom schools,” and lockdown mandates have led to “deprivation overall, of social contact, [of] not being able to see faces, being stuck at home all day long, [and this] has actually caused brain damage to the youngsters,” he said.

In another interview in the episode, professor Carl Heneghan, the director of Oxford University’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, cited evidence that pandemic restrictions and the “fear we instill into children” has led to the worsening of psychological problems.

Heneghan cited his Oct. 2 study, which concluded that “eight out of 10 children and adolescents report worsening of behavior or any psychological symptoms or an increase in negative feelings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“School closures contributed to increased anxiety, loneliness and stress; negative feelings due to COVID-19 increased with the duration of school closures,” the study reports. “Deteriorating mental health was found to be worse in females and older adolescents.”

Adolescents above the age of 12 also did worse than children under 12, as adolescents face increasing peer pressure, social pressure, and are more aware of messages being delivered globally, according to Heneghan.

“The first thing is to deescalate any fear and anxiety around COVID for children,” Heneghan said. “For children, [COVID] is actually a very safe disease” and children shouldn’t be worried about the impact of COVID “on themselves or their future health.”

He said that “shutting areas like schools was a mistake,” as keeping them open is good for education, “social connectedness, and well-being.”

“We should really prioritize education and those interventions that are in children’s best interest,” he said.

According to a Dec. 20 study, data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also showed that mental health-related visits in 2020, when pandemic restrictions were first imposed, increased by 24 percent in 5- to 11-year-olds and 31 percent in 12- to 17-year-olds, compared to 2019 data.

Anecdotally, McDonald noted that he’s seen children who “refuse to make eye contact, who are wetting their pants or wetting the bed at night, cannot go to sleepovers—being away from their mother for extended periods of time.”

Teenagers, on the other hand, come out of lockdown restrictions being “so wrapped up in social media and phones and Zoom school because they’ve been trained for the last year and a half, that they do not even want to go out anymore,” he said.

McDonald called the government and media corporations out for creating a “behavioral conditioning program,” in which children are subjected to “irrational, ridiculous” situations such as eating outside on a 40-degree day and having to run marathons or play sports with masks on.

As of Dec. 27, the Biden administration is recommending that children “too young to be vaccinated” should be “surrounded by vaccinated people and mask in public indoor spaces, including schools,” according to the COVID plan on the White House website. “For those adolescents aged 12 and above who are eligible for vaccination, the most important step parents can take is to get them vaccinated.”

As of Dec. 27, the website states that “over half of the nation’s adolescents have been vaccinated.”

They Are Working Relentlessly To Transform Our Society Into A Dystopian “Big Brother” Hellhole | The Most Important News

The past two years have fundamentally transformed just about every nation on the entire planet, and there will be no going back if the elite have their way.  For more than a decade, I have been warning about the rapid growth of the “Big Brother” control grid all around us, but in 2020 and 2021 things have gone to an entirely new level.  The pandemic has given them the perfect excuse to impose lockdowns, mask requirements, vaccine passports and mandatory injections all over the globe.  They have used fear of the virus to get the vast majority of the world population to accept measures that they never would have accepted during normal times.  As a result, now they can monitor us, track us and control us like never before.

In many areas, it has already gotten to a point where you can’t even live a normal life without a “vaccine passport” or some other proof that you are up to date on your injections.  In New York City, people have been getting arrested just for ordering food without showing proof of vaccination.  As a result of such authoritarian measures, the vaccination rate in the city is up to about 85 percent, but that still isn’t good enough for those in charge.

So now they are going to be sending vaccination teams around to “encourage” those that have not been vaccinated to get their shots.

Oh, and if you give in they will hand you $100 for being a good little servant of the system.

Sadly, it sounds like door to door vaccination teams will soon be coming to the UK as well

Door-to-door teams armed with Covid jabs will be sent to the homes of unvaccinated Britons in plans being considered by Ministers to reach the estimated five million people yet to be inoculated.

Discussions between the Department of Health, NHS England and No 10 over the past week have looked at a nationwide drive to send vaccine teams to areas with low uptake rates as a crucial way to avoid lockdown and other restrictions.

But at least the injections have not become mandatory in the United States and the UK just yet.

However, an increasing number of nations are starting to move in that direction.  Ecuador just mandated the injections for everyone that is at least five years old, it appears that Germany could make them mandatory early next year, and Austria is actually hiring people to hunt down “vaccine refusers”.

Yes, our world really is becoming one huge science fiction movie.

In Canada, the government was actually “secretly tracking 33 million phones” in order to gauge “the public’s responsiveness during lockdown measures”…

Canada – which has a population of 38 million – has admitted to secretly tracking 33 million phones during the Covid-19 lockown, according to the National Post, citing Blacklock’s Reporter which first noted the disclosure.

The country’s Public Health Agency (PHAC) did so to assess “the public’s responsiveness during lockdown measures,” according to the report.

Canada has gone completely and totally nuts during this pandemic.

But the Canadians still have a long way to go in order to top the insanity in New Zealand.

Not too long ago, an anti-euthanasia group asked the Ministry of Health if a patient that is in the hospital with COVID is “eligible” for euthanasia

In November, anti-euthanasia group #DefendNZ asked the New Zealand Ministry of Health (MOH) questions about the practice of the nation’s End of Life Choice Act (EOLC Act). One of these questions was, “Could a patient who is severely hospitalised with Covid-19 potentially be eligible for assisted suicide or euthanasia under the Act if a health practitioner viewed their prognosis as less than 6 months?”

The response that the group got back was extremely alarming

Doctors receive a government fee of $1,000 plus expenses for each person they kill through euthanasia.

The MOH confirmed that such patients with COVID could be killed by lethal injection under the new euthanasia law. This includes patients who are considered to be dying from COVID or those who have extreme suffering from its effects. The MOH stated, “A terminal illness is most often a prolonged disease where treatment is not effective.”

If you live in New Zealand and you get COVID, you will want to be very careful to clarify what someone means when they ask you if you want to “go to sleep”.

Of course all of the rules, regulations and mandates that have been imposed upon us are not for the elite.  They appear to be operating under their own special set of rules, and this should make all of us very sick.

I really like how Emerald Robinson made this point in her most recent article

Meanwhile, my colleagues in the corporate media spent their time in 2021 telling you that you could fly on a packed airplane but that your church was closed. That you couldn’t walk into your favorite local restaurant but Target and Walmart were always open for you. That your schools were shut down but left-wing political rallies were safe to attend. They treated CDC “guidelines” as law. They repeated with a straight face that your civil rights were basically suspended indefinitely — unless you were a member of Congress or Bill Gates. The overwhelming majority of my so-called colleagues in journalism spent the entire year celebrating this state of affairs. The stench of their treachery to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights will never be washed away.

Our freedoms and liberties are being systematically destroyed all around us, but many Americans don’t seem to care.

Instead, they just continue to allow fear of the virus to push them into doing very irrational things.

For instance, a riot almost erupted in Brooklyn on Friday when officials started to hand out “free at-home COVID-19 tests”

Cops had to step in Friday as a crowd mobbed a Brooklyn corner where the city was giving away free at-home COVID-19 tests.

Tempers flared as the larger-than-expected crowd descended on Flatbush and Church avenues, one of five spots in the Big Apple where city health officials were doling out tests amid a surge in demand over the holidays and lack of supply.

People were so desperate to get those tests that the police had to be called in.

It reminded me of scenes that we would see on Black Friday in the pre-pandemic days, but in this case people were ready to fight to get their hands on free COVID tests.

Have we really sunk this low?

I was really hoping that the pandemic was starting to subside, but now this new Omicron variant has caused a tremendous wave of fear.

And politicians will inevitably respond to all of this fear by imposing even more authoritarian measures.

I have been shocked by how easy it has been for much of the global population to accept the authoritarian measures that have been imposed so far.  If they are not willing to stand up to tyranny now, what will happen when much greater tyranny comes along later?

These are such dark times, and I believe that they will get even darker in 2022.

The fiery grip of tyranny is getting a little tighter with each passing day, but much of the population of our planet does not seem to think that this is a problem.

Protests over post-vaccination deaths spread across South Korea | RT – Daily news

Protests over post-vaccination deaths spread across South Korea

One of the most vaccinated nations on earth is seeing increased public pushback over Covid-19 jabs, as demonstrators in South Korea are demanding accountability for deaths that they blame on the shots.

Protesters gathered in Busan on Sunday after a similar rally was held in Seoul on Christmas Day. Aggrieved demonstrators held up large portraits of deceased family members – like those typically displayed at funerals in South Korea – and testified as to how their loved ones died soon after being vaccinated against Covid-19.

Dozens of funeral portraits were displayed at Saturday’s demonstration at the government complex in Seoul. Protesters called for the government to identify the causes of adverse reactions and admit that vaccines are to blame.

More than 1,000 South Koreans died shortly after receiving Covid-19 shots, but the government has confirmed a causal connection to vaccines in only a few of those cases. In one of the rare instances where a serious adverse reaction was acknowledged, a nursing assistant was recognized in August as a victim of an industrial accident and awarded government benefits after suffering paralysis in the wake of receiving AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 shot.

Just one week into its rollout of Covid-19 vaccines in late February and early March, South Korea’s Disease Control and Prevention Agency said that seven people had died and 24 had reported serious adverse reactions after receiving their AstraZeneca jabs. The government reportedly began an investigation in August after a teenager with no underlying health conditions died following inoculation with the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine.

An association called the Covid-19 Vaccine Victims and Families Council has held rallies in several South Korean cities. Demonstrators on Sunday marched from Busan City Hall to Busan National University of Education, Yonhap News reported.

Vaccine safety may become a contentious issue in South Korea’s presidential election. The opposition People’s Power Party last week held a public hearing on vaccine side effects, inviting alleged victims and their family members to offer suggestions for support measures that presidential candidate Yoon Seok-yeol may adopt.

Kim Jong-in, the party’s campaign chairman, reportedly accused President Moon Jae-in’s administration of being indifferent on vaccine damages. The administration has pledged to compensate victims of vaccine side effects, but it’s also the arbiter of whether injuries and deaths are attributed to the jabs. “I think the people have reached a point where they can’t trust the government,” Kim said.

South Korea typically has some of the world’s highest jab rates for various vaccines, and the Covid-19 shots have been no exception. About 83% of South Koreans have been vaccinated against Covid-19, easily the highest rate among G20 nations.

USA Swimming official takes stand, resigns job in protest over transgender swimmer: ‘Boys are built differently than girls’ — Conservative Review

An official for USA Swimming resigned from her job of over 30 years this month over what she believes is the unfair development of permitting transgender female swimmers to compete against biologically female swimmers.

What is the background?

University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas — a biological male now competing as a female — has generated controversy for demolishing her competition, which are biologically female swimmers.

Swimmers on the University of Pennsylvania’s female swimming team, along with parents, have voiced frustrations over what they believe are unfair circumstances.

Under NCAA rules, transgender athletes must complete one year of testosterone-suppression treatment before being able to compete as a transgender male athlete, which Thomas has completed. But Thomas still has a clear physiological advantage over the competition. Additionally, Thomas is a talented swimmer who earned the honor of being named a second-team All-Ivy League athlete while competing as a male during the 2018-2019 season.

What did the USA Swimming official say?

Cynthia Millen officiated for USA Swimming for more than 30 years. But, according to the Washington Times, she “hung up her whistle last week in protest” of Thomas.

Millen said she notified the governing body on Dec. 17 of her resignation as she was packing to officiate the U.S. Paralympics Swimming National Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina. Millen then withdrew from working the event.

In a letter, Millen told USA Swimming the fairness of competitive swimming “is being destroyed” by swimmers like Thomas.

“I told my fellow officials that I can no longer participate in a sport which allows biological men to compete against women. Everything fair about swimming is being destroyed,” Millen wrote.

In fact, Millen said that if she were officiating an event that included Thomas, she would have declared Thomas ineligible to compete against biological women.

“If Lia came on my deck as a referee, I would pull the coach aside and say, ‘Lia can swim, but Lia can swim exhibition or a time trial. Lia cannot compete against those women because that’s not fair,” Millen said.

The career swimming official explained that physiological differences between men and women are exposed in the swimming pool, such that the world’s best female swimmers — like Olympic champion Katie Ledecky — cannot compete against elite male swimmers.

“Boys are built differently than girls. I mean, we know that: Boys have the T-shape, the broad shoulders, the narrow hips,” Millen said. “Girls have the hips, they’ve got more drag, they’ve got boobs, they’ve got body fat.”

“Yes, a Katie Ledecky can beat a lot of guys, but in the end, the [best] guys are going to beat Katie Ledecky. Absolutely. The differential is 8-12% faster. Equally trained, they will always win,” Millen explained.

Anything else?

Millen told the Washington Times that other swimming officials agree with her, but fear retaliation if they speak out.

“I’ve talked to some other officials, and while they say yeah, this is ridiculous, I think a lot of people feel like they can’t do anything about it,” Millen said. “But you’ve got to make a stand sometimes. If enough people walk off the deck, or if enough referees say no, it will change. It’s wrong.”

Speaking about USA Swimming, Millen said, “I haven’t heard anything. I think they are so worried themselves. They get a lot of sponsorship money from a lot of big companies, and I think they’re worried. They don’t want to appear that they’re not being inclusive, but this is not being inclusive. This is being deceitful.”

“A Woman Is A Woman, Man Is A Man”: Putin Vows To Protect Russia From West’s “Gender Obscurantism”

Article Image

 • https://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden

During his marathon annual year-end press conference Q&A, which this year lasted about four hours, Russian President Vladimir Putin once again vowed to defend Russian society against the intrusion of the corrupted values of the West, in particular blasting the “gender obscurantism” pushed by the United States and Europe.

“I am a proponent of the traditional approach that a woman is a woman and a man is a man,” Putin laid out, which it goes without saying also reflects basic Biology 101 and humans’ self-understanding for thousands upon thousands of years. He continued in the remarks on gender: “A mother is a mother, a father is a father. And I hope that our society has the internal moral protection dictated by the traditional religious denominations of the Russian Federation.”

Throughout the remarks he called it basic “common sense” – which strongly suggested that the opposite is currently the rule of the day in America and the West generally, where people fear being “canceled” in their jobs and during public discourse if they don’t confirm to concepts of ‘gender fluidity’ and Frankenstein reassignment surgeries, which is even increasingly being pushed on children.

Putin was responding to a question form a journalist over recent gender controversies in the West, and also the way it has impacted women’s sports.

“And we learned to treat each other with respect. And what does it mean? That also means treating the foundations of our traditional spiritual culture with respect. All the peoples of the Russian Federation, I would like to stress, all of them have a certain internal moral protection against this obscurantism that you’ve just mentioned,” the Russian leader said.

“If somebody thinks that a woman and a man are the same thing, they’re welcome to [their opinion], but a certain common sense should exist.”

Merry Christmas, Fauci! Amazon’s #1 nonfiction book is brutal exposé of most dangerous doctor in America | WND

It appears that there were a lot of copies of the anti-Dr. Anthony Fauci opus “The Real Dr. Anthony Fauci” by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. under Christmas trees across America this holiday season, no doubt much to the chagrin of the darling of the pandemic narrative himself as well as Amazon’s notably progressive founder Jeff Bezos.

The book was not only on Amazon’s nonfiction bestseller list for the week of Christmas, which began on Dec. 19, but was the number one book on Amazon’s top sellers.

Fauci, of course, is the senior White House health adviser who has been directing the federal government’s pandemic response since spring of 2020.

But as he has been elevated to near-sainthood by the supporters of masking mandates, vaccine mandates and ongoing lockdowns, skepticism has been growing among those who are less enthused by his flip-flopping and rather questionable history with gain-of-function research and connections to the Wuhan lab that was researching coronaviruses when the virus first broke out in the Chinese city.

Among these has most certainly been Kennedy, Jr., a longtime anti-vaccine activist who has found himself on the wrong end of cancel culture despite his Democratic bona fides and membership to one of America’s most noteworthy political dynasties as he takes on the worldwide efforts to mass-vaccinate the population.

The book, “The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health,” confronts the depiction of Fauci as a “hero” by the “pharma-funded mainstream media,” which Kennedy argues he is “anything but,” according to the publisher’s description.

“As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research, allowing him to dictate the subject, content, and outcome of scientific health research across the globe,” it reads.

“Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals, and thousands of influential doctors and scientists — whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance, or reward.”

The author’s findings will “alarm every American — Democrat or Republican — who cares about democracy, our Constitution, and the future of our children’s health.”

Kennedy Jr. examines Fauci’s history during the AIDS crisis, during which he says the up-and-coming public health doctor partnered with the pharmaceutical industry “to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments” for the then-novel virus.

“Fauci orchestrated fraudulent studies, and then pressured US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators into approving a deadly chemotherapy treatment he had good reason to know was worthless against AIDS,” the book description explains.

“Fauci repeatedly violated federal laws to allow his Pharma partners to use impoverished and dark-skinned children as lab rats in deadly experiments with toxic AIDS and cancer chemotherapies.”

The book also looks at Fauci’s history of partnering with billionaire Bill Gates to “control an increasingly profitable” global vaccine initiative in crooked collusion with elected officials, news media and social media to establish the “Pharma-Fauci-Gates alliance” which “exercises dominion over global health policy.”

“The Real Anthony Fauci details how Fauci, Gates, and their cohorts use their control of media outlets, scientific journals, key government and quasi-governmental agencies, global intelligence agencies, and influential scientists and physicians to flood the public with fearful propaganda about COVID-19 virulence and pathogenesis, and to muzzle debate and ruthlessly censor dissent,” the book description concludes.

Now, to the O.G. vaccine skeptics out there who have been following Kennedy Jr. since long before the pandemic, none of these allegations are surprising.

What is surprising, however, is that this is the description of a book that is ranked number one on Amazon and not a fringe blog that has established itself with sensationalistic headlines enjoyed by small factions of crunchy social media users.

Regardless of what you think about Kennedy Jr. and the claims he has been making about crooked global health cabals or the dangers of widespread vaccination, you’ve got to marvel that skepticism of Fauci’s earnestness as a public health leader has gotten so pronounced that his book is this popular.

Narrative broken much?

The truth is, Kennedy Jr. is hardly the first high-profile critic of Dr. Fauci.

While the media continues to prop him up as the prophet of COVID, he’s been confronted on his dubious career ties and alleged lies to Congress about his past by Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky on more than one occasion, and his emails from the early days of the pandemic released earlier this year certainly didn’t assuage concerns that he might be shadier than he is saintly.

The truth is, this book isn’t exactly coming out of left field.

It digs into claims that have been made about Dr. Fauci for some time and, whether true or not, enough of a picture of his untrustworthiness has been painted over the last nearly two years that conspiratorial allegations have managed to cut through all the glowing media coverage of his career and activities during the pandemic to propel this book to success.

And truth be told, this is a good thing.

What makes Dr. Anthony Fauci the most dangerous doctor in America is not necessarily his nefarious past (although this most certainly should be examined thoroughly and honestly), but that he is treated like such an infallible authority by the media — and apparently seems to believe he is infallible himself.

It wasn’t that long ago that he indignantly declared that if the skeptical plebs question him, they’re really just attacking science, because, apparently, he is the science.

This is scary stuff.

What Fauci spouts is not science — it’s indoctrination, since science can always be questioned and tested.

The role he has played in this pandemic has been that of a modern-day oracle, not a scientist who is subject to scrutiny.

For this reason, he absolutely must be questioned and criticized. And the fact that a book that casts a very harsh light on the authority we’re not supposed to question strongly signals that the American people are no longer buying his lies.

I don’t know about you, but I think that bodes pretty well for the future of independent scientific thought in America. Or, at the very least, it doesn’t bode very well for Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Over 6,000 Flights Cancelled During Christmas Weekend — The Gateway Pundit

Hundreds of flights were canceled on Sunday as the mass cancellation and delay count continued to rise due to people calling in sick and citing omicron.

“The nationwide spike in Omicron cases this week has had a direct impact on our flight crews and the people who run our operation. As a result, we’ve unfortunately had to cancel some flights and are notifying impacted customers in advance of them coming to the airport,” United said in a statement. “We’re sorry for the disruption and are working hard to rebook as many people as possible and get them on their way for the holidays.”

United alone canceled 201 flights on Friday and 238 flights on Saturday.

Delta cancelled 173 flights just on Christmas Eve and Jet Blue cancelled 80.

“We apologize to our customers for the delay in their holiday travel plans,” Delta said in a statement. “Delta people are working hard to get them to where they need to be as quickly and as safely as possible on the next available flight.”

Across all airlines, thousands of flights were disrupted over the weekend.

“Almost 700 US flights were canceled and another 1,300 were delayed Sunday, according to FlightAware. Globally, there were over 2,000 cancellations. Delta and JetBlue each saw over 100 cancellations Sunday,” the CNN report explains.

Across the globe, over 6,000 flights were canceled from Christmas Eve through Sunday — including approximately 1,700 originating in or flying to the United States.

Holiday travel was up more than double this year from last, but is still well below the pre-pandemic levels.

GOP Strategist Miller: Biden Doesn’t Know About The “Let’s Go Brandon” Meme Because His Staff Controls What Information He Sees | RealClearPolitics Videos

Former Trump advisors Stephen Miller and Larry Kudlow discussed the Biden administration’s first year in office this week on FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures.” Miller claimed the moment where President Biden was seen playing along when told “Let’s Go Brandon” during a holiday phone call is indicative of how the president receives information. “He doesn’t know about the ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ meme because he doesn’t consume any of his own information. He is completely sheltered and controlled by his staff,” Miller said. “He is totally shaped and controlled by staff and has no inputs but what they give him… His own staff sees him as a vessel.”

STEPHEN MILLER: No president has lost the faith and confidence of the American people more quickly and more totally than Joe Biden. And there are many reasons for that. Obviously, there’s an enormous amount of incompetence as we have seen with the Covid-19 testing debacle, but the heart of it is this issue. Joe Biden campaigned, both in his primary and the general election, as a moderate. He was even selected as the nominee by Democratic voters because Democrats perceived him as being on the moderate flank of his party. He has governed unrelentingly as a Marxist for over a year now. Everything that we are seeing –record crime, record illegal immigration, record inflation, record spending, and record gas prices– all of these things together are because of specific policy choices that were made. LARRY KUDLOW: So your point is that this is the bait and switch? The bait was, “I’m a moderate.” The switch was [going far left]. Why do you think that he went to the far left? He himself does not have a great ideological history. But this is really radical, hard-left stuff, progressive stuff, AOC. Is it the senior staff that is moving him? How do you read that? STEPHEN MILLER: Here is my theory, and I am being completely forthright when I say this. I believe that Joe Biden is controlled by his staff and his aides. And not just the senior staff. I think mid-level aides in the White House. The recent incident that they made a great deal of fun about, or they should have, where Joe Bien said, “Let’s Go Brandon” during Christmas, to me reveals something much more insidious. Which is that he doesn’t know about the “Let’s Go Brandon” meme because he doesn’t consume any of his own information. He is completely sheltered and controlled by his staff. So unlike President Trump, where he would bring us into the Oval Office and say, “I read this report, this report, and that report as well. I would like a reaction and analysis.” It is completely opposite with Joe Biden. He is totally shaped and controlled by staff and has no inputs but what they give him. So they see him, his own staff sees him, as a vessel to implement these AOC-style, soft-on-crime, no borders, massive taxation and welfare, no-American-energy policies. He is their vessel and we are suffering as a result.

Austria: Thousands protest vaccine mandate and COVID restrix in Vienna at 2nd ‘Sea of Lights’

Thousands of protesters marched through Vienna’s city centre with candles and lights to decry compulsory vaccinations and COVID-19 measures on Sunday. The march comes as a counterprotest in response to last weeks ‘Sea of Lights’ candlelight vigil in honour of the lives lost to the coronavirus pandemic, where an estimate of 40,000 people we present.

Jan Crawford: Kids Will Be Paying For Our Generation’s Covid Policies For The Rest Of Their Lives | RealClearPolitics Videos

CBS reporter Jan Crawford explained her most under-reported story of the year during a year-end panel Sunday on “Face The Nation”:

JAN CRAWFORD: I mean, my kids hear me rant about this every day, so I might as well tell you guys it’s- it’s the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children. By far the least serious risk for serious illness. But I mean, even teenagers, you know, a healthy teenager has a one in a million chance of getting, and dying from COVID, which is way lower than, you know, dying in a car wreck on a road trip. But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids and underrepresented at risk communities. And now we have the Surgeon General saying there’s a mental health crisis among our kids. The risk of suicide — suicide attempts among girls now up 51% this year, black kids nearly twice as likely as white kids to die by suicide. I mean, school closures, lockdowns, cancellation of sports. You couldn’t even go on a playground in the D.C. area without cops scurrying- getting- shooing the kids off. A tremendous negative impact on kids, and it’s been an afterthought. You know, it’s hurt their dreams, their future learning loss, risk of abuse, their mental health. And now, with our knowledge, our vaccines. If our policies don’t reflect a more measured and reasonable approach for our children, they will be paying for our generation’s decisions, the rest of their lives. And that, to me, is the greatest underreported story of the past year.

2021’s top posts: The master plan behind the Covid crisis — The Conservative Woman

We are re-running the 25 most-read posts of 2021. This is at No 5, and was first published on September 20. 

THIS is the translated transcript* of a presentation entitled ‘Uncovering the Corona Narrative’ by the German author and journalist Ernst Wolff, which he delivered in late August. It can be viewed here in the original. There are subtitles.

Wolff is a German author and journalist whose long-term focus of criticism has been the global financial and monetary system, especially the role of the IMF, the World Bank, the Federal Reserve, the Bretton Woods system and the worldwide fiat money. https://www.investopedia.com/terms/f/fiatmoney.asp Here he details the unfolding global health and economic crisis consequent on the Covid-19 lockdowns and addresses the question of who has an interest in this destructive agenda.

***

The American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said: ‘Nothing happens accidentally in politics and when something happens, you can bet on it that it was exactly planned that way.’

When one looks at what’s happened in the last year and a half, these words are especially alarming.

Can it really be the case that everything we’ve experienced was planned? I’ll say one thing right away: I can’t produce any evidence for such a plan in the form of verified documents, but after studying this topic in detail for 18 months, I must say that there is an impressive number of signs and indications pointing in exactly this direction.

It’s this and the consequences thereof that I want to talk about today.

The current situation we find ourselves in is unique in the history of mankind. Never before has the whole world been thrown under the rule of this type of coercive regime as now in our time. And never have so many measures been taken which at first glance appear to be unintelligible, partly so nonsensical, and in many cases so contradictory.

Officially, this is about the most serious health crisis in living memory, but the measures being used against this have not improved the situation but continuously made things worse.

Every doctor today can confirm that the health condition of people, the majority of people, is worse than before the crisis, and even from the point of view of those who ordered the measures, we are faced with a shambles.

The allegedly threatening fourth wave, and the announcement of the need for third, fourth and fifth vaccinations show that the purpose of the measures up to now, namely preventing the illness, has failed completely.

But that is not all by far. As a consequence of the lockdowns up to now we have a severe global economic crisis to manage. Worldwide production hangs in complete disarray. Global logistics is on the floor, supply chains are broken, harvests are being lost, there are food supply bottlenecks, and on top of this a scarcity for a large part of the economy of essential semi-conductors.

But also we are seeing the problems are not being addressed and solved, but multiplied and magnified via the application of further measures and the constant threat of new restrictions.

The most recent example: in China a port freight terminal, the third largest in the world, has been closed down due to a single positive test from a worker there. Or take New Zealand, where in all seriousness during the last week, five million people were put in lockdown for three days because a single 58-year-old had a positive test.

A further crisis is affecting the small/medium businesses sector, which by a long way provides the most jobs worldwide, and additionally supplies the largest share of tax revenues. The Mittelstand [small-medium industry sector] is being driven from week to week further to the wall through the incessant uncertainty and new regulations, and has never before been stuck in such a deep crisis as today.

But that is not all. We are experiencing at present a brutally increasing worldwide inflation, especially for raw materials, with producer prices and with food products.

But also here, nothing is being done to alleviate the situation, but rather the opposite. The flood of money printing continues and will even be further increased. Countries and central banks have, since the start of the crisis, thrown in almost $20trillion into the worldwide monetary system, without any end in sight! And the International Monetary Fund, as the most powerful financial organisation in the world, will give out next Monday with $650billion, the largest amount ever of its own currency, under special withdrawing rights.

And the situation in society is no better. Just one example: in the USA, the strongest economy in the world, almost four million people are threatened with eviction because they cannot pay their rent or cannot cover their mortgage costs. And more than ten times as many in the USA – note in the richest country of the world – are not in a position to feed themselves from their own income. And that, which the intentional destruction of the economy and the rising inflation have not managed to accomplish, politicians have managed to do. A country-wide fracture of the population as we have never witnessed before.

And now on top of this come vicious measures as the crowning of the whole thing, the premeditated change of power in Afghanistan managed by the USA. There, the Taliban have been deliberately handed military materials to the value of $20billion – a complete air force, with eleven airfield support bases available for use which with absolute certainty will cause the next enormous flood wave of refugees.

Why this, one asks oneself? Why were worldwide measures taken which have caused one disaster after another, and pushed the majority of humanity deeper towards the abyss, instead of lifting them out of their misery?

To answer this question, one has to ask two further questions, namely:

Who has an interest in this global agenda? and

Who profits from this?

The answer to both questions is clear.

The biggest profiteer from the current crisis, and the most important string-puller behind the scenes, is the digital-financial complex. So a type of special interest community, with the largest IT corporations and the largest asset managers of our time at its head. The largest IT concerns include Apple, the Google parent company Alphabet, Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook. The market capitalisation of these five companies alone at present amounts to an incredible $9.1trillion. Just for comparison, the gross GDP of Germany, France and Italy is $8.6trillion. Along with these digital concerns we also have the large asset managers, namely BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street and Fidelity. They are significantly involved in all IT companies, and not only this, these four companies alone, currently manage a total $220.6 trillion. Again, for comparison, the GDP of all 28 nations of the EU last year amounted to $15.7 trillion.

But it is not just the monstrous financial clout of these concerns which makes the digital-financial complex so powerful. Let’s first take the IT corporations. They don’t just have an enormous power themselves, they also control hundreds of thousands of other companies because they organise the digital systems of these other businesses, and in this way have a constant overview of their data streams. The IT industry is nothing other than a tumour which, in the course of the past years has metastasised into all other branches of the economy to make them dependent upon it, and in the meantime to completely dominate them. And it is not any different with the asset managers. They are involved in every large company in the world, and able to influence every popular brand in the world.

The largest of them, BlackRock, supplies the more than 40 years old data analysis system ‘Aladdin Data Cloud’, the greatest fund and financial information the world has ever seen. And in the background, BlackRock uses this knowledge to advise the largest central banks in the world, the Federal Reserve and the EZB [European Central Bank]. Through the huge information advantage which BlackRock has, it is very clear who is dependent upon whom.

So this has to do with a unique historic mix of raw financial power and the discretionary power over an unimaginable huge data pool. This combination allowed these corporations to make a business upswing since the beginning of the crisis as never before. And not only that, their advantage is accelerating continuously. Alone in the previous quarter of this year – April, May and June – these companies have made the largest profits in their whole history. And also, in view of these facts, there’s not much left to the imagination.

And to come to the conclusion, it is this digital-financial complex which is a global power centre which drives everything.

The digital-financial complex stands far above all governments, and is ready at all times to bring every government cabinet in the world to its knees and make it compliant.

One must wonder, however, all the more about the methods introduced by the digital-financial complex since the start of the crisis, because it seems almost as if it is undermining the very system from which it benefits. Here are a few examples. If the digital-financial complex destroys small-medium businesses, then really it is destroying its own livelihood because, as we just heard, the small-medium business sector [Mittelstand] pays the great share of taxes revenues and creates the most jobs. And when inflation increases, that also hurts the digital-financial complex, and when it destroys social peace through increasing inequality, then it also destroys those who it makes its business from.

All these are valid objections, but they miss the reality. Namely, this is how it works. The digital-financial complex has no other choice other than to do what it does at present. What we currently experience is not something which is a formulated written agenda, with which it will accumulate yet more money and power, and then sit back to enjoy the fruits of its labours.

What we are experiencing at this time is a gigantic act of desperation, probably the biggest that has ever occurred in the whole history of mankind. The cause of this act of desperation is that the system to which the digital-financial system owes its existence can no longer be kept alive with the previous business model. It was very close to its demise already during the world financial crisis of 2007-8. If governments then had not mobilised huge amounts of tax money, and the central banks instructed oodles of money to be created out of nothing, the system would have collapsed there and then.

But salvation was only temporary. The amounts of money had to be continuously increased over a period of 12 years, and the interest rates had to be reduced several times. So the system was made ever more unstable. In the long term that could not go well. And last year it was to the point that the next collapse was threatening. And this collapse has been postponed through a final feat of strength, namely the reduction of interest rates to zero, and the injection of billions and billions for one final time. With that however, a qualitatively new situation has come about. A further deferral would require interest rates to be dropped into the minus range, and this would destroy the foundation of the current banking system. Banks cannot operate long-term with negative interest rates. This means that a further deferral with the previously used approach will not be possible. In the present situation one can inject billions and billions into the system at maximum one more time. However, with the result that the already strongly growing rate of inflation will further overheat and will be driven into hyper-inflation.

The situation in which the digital-financial complex finds itself is between the alternatives of, on one side the final collapse, and hyper-inflation on the other side. So, the total loss of value of money. That means, historically, we’ve arrived at a point in which the digital-financial complex, in the framework of the existing system, only still has the choice between two various forms of collapse.

So what can they do?

Quite clearly they have, in this situation, chosen to install a new system and a double strategy. On one side, in the background and away from public view, they are preparing a new system. And on the other side, they are using the end phase of the present dying system to plunder it using all tricks at their disposal. This is exactly what we’ve seen since March 2020. The quite deliberate and premeditated destruction of the world economy for the exclusive expansion of the digital-financial complex, with simultaneous preparation via the central banks of a new system, and in collaboration with the IT corporations. And we already know how this system will look. It is about the complete removal of cash and banks in their previous form, and the introduction of digital money from central banks.

The end goal, as it appears, is that we will all have just a single account through which all transactions run. And this account will not reside in a business/high street bank, but with the central bank.

The background to this plan is the following: digital central bank money is programmable, and because central banks can create unlimited money out of nothing, one can indeed operate in this way with negative interest rates, without having to destroy the system.

But this furthermore is not the only feature of digital central bank money. It will allow governments to watch over all transactions made to assign us various tax rates, and impose upon us individual fines. Governments can also place an expiry limit on a part of our money, and require that we spend certain amounts within certain time periods. But it can also require the money to be used for specific purposes, and require that specific amounts be paid only for certain products, or that they be sourced only from certain regions.

Above all, government will be in the position to cancel our ability to make all transactions with a single mouse click, and so shut us down financially.

Digital central bank money would be the most efficient tax collection method for society that has ever occurred in the whole history of man. And with that, nothing more and nothing less than the realisation of an all-encompassing dictatorship brought about through money.

However, the whole thing has a huge snag.

Namely, the expected resistance from the public. One can be very certain that a large proportion of people won’t accept this form of disenfranchisement. So the introduction of digital central bank money would be expected to produce huge social unrest.

And it is exactly this problem that the digital-financial complex has quite obviously thought about to reverse the process of introducing this (digital) currency. So, they won’t try to make this switch to digital currency gradually but, and thereby risking huge resistance, will do it exactly the other way around. They will drive society into chaos in order to present the introduction of digital central bank money as the solution to all problems. Namely, in the form of a Universal Basic Income (UBI).

For anyone who thinks this is a ‘conspiracy theory’ pulled out of the air, I recommend that you once again take a close look at everything we’ve experienced in the past 18 months. Under the pretext of fighting an illness, devastating and irreparable damages have been done to health, economy and finances, whose full effects are only beginning to show up so far in traces. But at the same time, day by day, work is being done to increase these damages, and in parallel, the social rift in society is being systematically deepened by constantly driving new wedges between people. All of this leads us purposefully in one single direction, social unrest to the point of a civil war, and indeed, worldwide. Exactly that, according to all available information I have, is what is wanted (by the other side). We are experiencing today that by using all conceivable means, one is trying to create the maximum social chaos, and then at the high point of this chaos, bring in a panacea with the name ‘Universal Basic Income’, and in this way effect a change from maximum chaos to maximum control.

By the way, there’s a second reason why, from the perspective of these power brokers, UBI must come. We are sitting right in the middle of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and expect, in the period ahead of us, the loss of millions and millions of jobs due to the introduction of Artificial Intelligence. This means millions of consumers will disappear. The demand for consumer goods will increasingly collapse. And because the current economic system is consumer driven, one must, to maintain life, break through this downward spiral. And that can only happen if all these unemployed consumers, who cannot find work, are provided with an income.

We see that what’s happened in the last 18 months, and what is still going on, is obviously all following a (prepared) plan. And the name of this plan is: ‘Deconstruction of the present economic system to the benefit of the elites. The generation of the maximum economic and social chaos, and the establishment of a new system, under the guise of wanting to provide humanitarian help.’

This plan is however available to read, and that’s in both books about the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Great Reset by Klaus Schwab, whose World Economic Forum (WEF) plays a key role in this whole agenda. The WEF has succeeded over the past 50 years to become the most important control centre of the digital-financial complex. First of all business leaders were brought together, then later also politicians, and still later, media creators in commanding roles, and prominent figures all networking with one another.

Additionally, in the 90s, people were subjected to a targeted training programme. We know today that since 1992, the ‘Global Leaders of Tomorrow’ and since 2005 the ‘Young Global Leaders’ always received a systematic schooling from the WEF.

And it is exactly these same people who right now occupy positions of political power and influence. Whether it is Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos or Jack Ma from the IT area. Whether it is CEO Larry Fink of BlackRock, head of the IMF Kristalina Georgieva, or former head of the Bank of England Mark Carney from the finance sector, or Emmanuel Macron, Sebastian Kurz or Angela Merkel from politics. All of these people have been either trained by the WEF or they sit on its leadership board.

And it’s not just the 1,300 members of this closely networked elite group who pull the strings worldwide. Since 2012, there are also a further 10,000 under 30-year-olds, so-called ‘Global Shapers’, who’ve joined the club, and who’ve also been brought together by the WEF, and in its sense, exert influence on the course of world events.

And we know how these events should look. To see this, I recommend looking into the work of WEF founder Klaus Schwab.

For those who still can’t believe that everything we’ve experienced follows a plan, they should check the publishing date of Schwab’s work, The Great Reset.

This book appeared on 20th June 2020, thus not even four months after the worldwide lockdown, and already gives exact instructions how one should use Covid-19, in order to put it darkly, creatively destroy the world, and build up a new world, in the image of man he [Schwab] has drawn up, which is reminiscent of the darkest times of national socialism.

I know that all of this sounds shocking, like a carefully prepared apocalypse.

Indeed, the agenda that is being followed here is obviously not only planned, but also can hardly be surpassed in terms of evil and deceit.

Who would ever have suspected that under the guise of protecting mankind from the effects of a disease, the world economy would be driven to a total collapse?

To take away people’s freedom to travel, their rights of association and free speech, the freedom to express opinions, and in addition, to condemn more than 100million people to starvation, and all of this allegedly ‘for their own protection’!

And who would have thought that an unapologetic eugenicist named Klaus Schwab would be put in a position to not only spread worldwide his gruesome vision of a melding of a human being with machine intelligence (AI), but also to have this vision driven forward by 10,000 helpers.

All of these are deeply destructive developments with which we are now living and having to suffer under and their details are enough to freeze the blood in the veins of any normal and thinking person.

But now I am coming to the most important message that I have to give today.

The whole thing also has another side to it, a quite different side and above all, one which gives us all a huge boost, and a great amount of power for our future work.

The plan of the elites, the visions of Klaus Schwab, are condemned to fail, and this is for several reasons.

The most important is that the narrative of a deadly virus, which is an existential threat to humanity, cannot be sustained in the long run.

We already see how the pack of lies is collapsing in on itself from all sides.

We see how, in efforts to legitimise it, resort is made to ever more absurd arguments and rabid defamation.

It is important to recognise here that the vehemence the media are displaying these days testifies not to their strength but to their weakness.

Whoever, with ever more emphasis, spreads ever more grotesque lies, like the pandemic of the unvaccinated, who declares healthy people public enemy No 1, and whoever on the basis of a single illness, or test ‘case’, locks down whole countries, they are doing this only because they’ve run out of arguments, and in desperation are blindly lashing out.

Abraham Lincoln once said: ‘You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all of the time.’

Exactly that – the truth will appear in our time, and this naturally has an enormous meaning for us, because ironically it opens up for us that which Klaus Schwab has termed ‘a unique window of opportunity’, however, in exactly the reverse dynamic (to what he intended). Namely, that via the collapsing narrative, the credibility of those who have led us into this situation is being buried by the day, and because of that, a unique window of opportunity has opened for all of us, for a vast and comprehensive campaign of enlightenment.

The objective conditions to enlighten others about the real background of the alleged ‘pandemic’, about the real balance of power in the world, and the real threats we face, have never been as good as now, and they are getting better day by day, because the other side are getting entangled in their increasingly unbelievable lies.

And even if the digital-financial complex should succeed in introducing the new currency, that would also not be the end of the world. Digital central bank money can namely only function as the basis of a comprehensive coercive system.

One will always introduce new price controls, continuously increase the Universal Basic Income, and create permanent inflation with emphatic pressure, which in turn will lead to a continuous impoverishment of the population, and constant conflict with the state and authorities.

What we need to understand is the following: Without any doubt, we stand before turbulent and also dangerous times, but we hold a historic trump card in our hands. It consists in the fact that the other side does not act according to the rules of reason, but strives out of motives of greed and power, and therefore cannot do anything other than bring itself into ever greater difficulties.

We should use exactly that (weakness), and always keep in view, that the other side likes more money, more property, and additionally to have available all the weapons in the world.

But their power is not based on their money, nor on their possessions or their weapons, but relies solely upon one factor. And that is the ignorance of the majority of people, i.e. the majority doesn’t understand the evil game that this minority are playing with them.

As terrible as everything is that the digital-financial complex and its helpers have served up in the past 18 months, and still continue to serve up, it has put itself in a situation which it cannot get out of, and in which out of despair it must cross ever more ‘red lines’.

This means for all of us, that in this exceptional situation we should, quite simply, keep the peace, consistently expose all lies, and show people bit by bit, why, and by whom, they are being deceived.

When we do that, and doing so reflect on the strength of our arguments, then we can not only solve the current problem, but possibly achieve something much bigger, namely, use one of the deepest crises of humanity to turn around the direction of human history, and so open the door to a new (and better) era.

Thank you.
