Why People Will Happily Line Up to be Microchipped Like Dogs

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

So…some people actually want to be microchipped like a dog. They’re lining up for it. They’re having parties to get it done. It if isn’t available to them, they’re totally bummed out.

I’m not even going to venture into the religious aspect of having a microchip inserted into a human being. Let’s just talk about the secular ramifications.

Certain folks won’t be happy until everyone has a computer chip implanted in them. Here’s how this could go.

  • Initially, it would be the sheep who blindly desire to be chipped for their own “convenience” leading the way.
  • Then, it would become remarkably inconvenient not to be chipped – sort of like it’s nearly impossible to not have a bank account these days.
  • Then, the last holdouts could be forcibly chipped by law.

Read on, because I could not make this stuff up.

 

Some employers are chipping workers.

Last summer, the internet was abuzz about a company in Wisconsin that wanted to microchip their employees. Workers at the technology company, Three Market Square, were given the option of having a chip implanted in their hands and 50 out of 80 eagerly lined up for the privilege.

Why? So they could buy food or swipe their way through building security with a wave of their hand. Software engineer Sam Bengtson explained why he was on board.

“It was pretty much 100 percent yes right from the get-go for me. In the next five to 10 years, this is going to be something that isn’t scoffed at so much, or is more normal. So I like to jump on the bandwagon with these kind of things early, just to say that I have it.” (source)

He wasn’t alone. In fact, they had a microchipping party and some people got chipped live on TV so the rest of us reluctant humans could all see how cool it was to get microchipped. Watch what fun they had!

 

It isn’t just this American company chipping workers. Here’s an example in Sweden.

What could pass for a dystopian vision of the workplace is almost routine at the Swedish start-up hub Epicenter. The company offers to implant its workers and start-up members with microchips the size of grains of rice that function as swipe cards: to open doors, operate printers or buy smoothies with a wave of the hand.

“The biggest benefit, I think, is convenience,” said Patrick Mesterton, co-founder and chief executive of Epicenter. As a demonstration, he unlocks a door merely by waving near it. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.” (source)

The Evidence Mounts That ISIS Is Preparing to Disperse the Pneumonic Plague From CIA Supplied Drones

0

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

The Pneumonic plague, which is essentially a lung-based plague, is always fatal in infected individuals if the pathogen is not immediately treated with extreme medical treatments.

It is accurate to state that some people are in an unwarranted state of panic. Some people are understating the danger. The following paragraphs represent these divergent views and the reader is left to decide for themselves.

A Conservative View of the Threat

I recently received an email from Tim Spencer in which he asserts the following:

“It does in fact seem that this strain Pneumonic Plague may, repeat may, have mutated.  Anecdotal reports certainly lead to this possible conclusion.

WHO (World Health Organization) has now publicly stated that the possibility of a pandemic does in fact exist.

The death toll thus far is most likely under reported, particularly from rural areas.

There is no indication that we have seen to lead us to believe that this reportedly new strain is intentionally weaponized – it could well be that this plague has simply mutated on it’s own due to many decades of antibiotic use in patients that would have died from the plague without treatment.

If this version of the Pneumonic Plague does reach North America, and that is a very big “if” right now, without further mutation we do not see this bug spreading rapidly if the news stories below are true – if this version really does kill the host within three hours of noting symptoms the spread should be slowed considerably.”

These facts are somewhat reassuring and it appears that it is far too early to panic. However, there are other voices, quieter voices, which tell a different story.

The Virus Can Kill Its Victims In Less Than Hours

The pathogen has already killed more than 171 people in Madagascar alone. Nobody is actually certain as to the actual death toll because there are thousands of  confirmed cases across the this beleagured African country but the linkage of the contraction of the virus to mortality is not well tracked in Madasgascar. However, there is clear evidence that the patogen is spreading.

The nation of Malawi has joined the previous nine nations to be placed on high aleart for a possible pandemic. The number of nations that are impacted has grown to ten. Please keeep in mind that this disease wiped out a third of the medieval population as the epdemic killed more than 50 million Europeans in the 15th centure.

Madagascar’s government is not taking any chances, as their health officials have imposed medical checkpoints across several areas in the capital city of Antananarivo. The checkpoints carry the force of law and can be used to detain anyone suspected of carrying the virus.

Lethality and the Spread of the Pathogen Have Greatly Increased in the Past Few Days

As of November 15, 2017, anestimated 2,000 people in Madagascar are thought to be infected, according to a spokesperson representing the nation’s health officials. This very serious report is given even more credibility as noted infection and immunity expert Dr Matthew Avison, of the University of Bristol, stated that the health crisis is likely to “get worse before it gets better”. The report in which doctors have reported and subsequently issued warnings about a new strain of the airborne disease which “can kill in three hours” is once again substantiated by yet another authorative source as Dr Derek Gatherer, from Lancaster University, claimes that the plague could spiral out of control in the same way Ebola did back in 2014.

GAME OVER HILLARY! FBI Informant Has Video Of Russian Agents With Briefcases Of Bribe Money In Clinton-Uranium Scandal

from Zero Hedge:

An undercover FBI informant in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former AG Loretta Lynch, claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal – according to The Hill investigative journalist John Solomon and Circa‘s Sara Carter.

The informant, whose identity was revealed by Reuters as William D. Campbell, will testify before congress next week after the NDA which carried the threat of prison time was lifted. Campbell, originally misidentifed by Reuters as a lobbyist is actually a nuclear industry consultant who is currently battling cancer. 

As previously reported, Campbell was deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry where he gathered extensive evidence of a racketeering scheme involving bribes and kickbacks.

The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. –The Hill

Campbell’s attorney, former Regan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing, previously told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”

Sara Carter and John Solomon sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity to discuss:

Sarah Carter: He’s very sick and he’s been battling cancer and going chemo. He is in a battle for not only his life, but in a battle against what he perceives as people within the US government that don’t want this story to come out.  But there’s so much information that he is willing to share with the public to set the record straight, and believe me we’re gonna get it out there. He is going to have his say. His voice will be heard.

Hannity: He knew about the bribery, kickbacks, extortion of Putin’s agents in the US?  

Sara Carter: Yes, and he will be able to lay that all out for everyone, and he will do that for Congress. John and I have been working on this for months and months and months. He came to the [Obama] DOJ with this information. 

John Solomon: He is going to be an extraordinary fact witness because he gathered so much information. There are videotapes where the Russians are opening up briefcases full of cash. These are the people we then gave uranium to, that we then gave nuclear fuel contracts to. 

Hannity: This is happening before they sign off on Uranium One? They knew about bribery extortion kickbacks money laundering before? They knew this was Putin and they did it anyway!

John Solomon: Yes. The Russians really thought they had played America on this one.

John Podesta Threatens Justice Department Not to Investigate Hillary Clinton

from realityreader, Steemit:

John Podesta threatened the department of justice against investigating Hillary Clinton in his November 15th Washington Post article. Hillary Clinton said that calls for the justice department to investigate her would be “such an abuse of power” and that any investigation into her actions as secretary of state or questionable deals by the Clinton foundation would be in her words “like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime.”

Podesta also sneered at the idea of an investigation into himself or Hillary Clinton by the Justice Department, claiming “This is what authoritarians and tyrants do. They use the instruments of state power, particularly the wrath of the prosecutor, to rain opprobrium down upon citizens with whom they disagree.” He insists that if the DOJ, under the new administration moves forward with appointing a Special Counsel to investigate Clinton or any of her associates, it will spell ‘dark days’, a weakened rule of law, and the country will be ‘in further peril.’

I’m sure the thousands of voters calling for a serious investigation into both Clinton and Podesta would disagree.

Podesta insists that pressure is being put on him as a distraction from the investigation by Robert Mueller, although he failed to mention in the same article that his own brother, Democrat party ally Tony Podesta is also under fire in the same investigation, as just last week Tony Podesta quit the Podesta group, with his replacement Kimberly Fritts quitting the company just days later. In an interview with politco, Podesta group staff say that they expect many more to leave the firm as Tony Podesta’s name has become “a scarlet letter”.

Former ‘Economic Hitman’ to Sputnik: US Uses Loans to Control Other Countries

from Sputnik News:

In his latest best-selling book “The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,” John Perkins tells how American companies used loans from the World Bank to take control over developing nations. In the first part of an exclusive interview with Sputnik Germany, Perkins gave an inside look at his former job.

Sputnik: Your criticism of the current global economic system dominated by the United States is based on your own experience. Back in the day, you were an “economic hitman.” What was your job?

John Perkins: My official position was called “senior economist and economic adviser” at a major consulting company. My job was to find countries with large reserves that our American companies wanted to seize. I mean oil and other things. Then I arranged large loans for those countries via the World Bank and its partner organizations. But those governments never received the money. Instead, the money was transferred – directly or indirectly – to American companies, including construction firms like Halliburton or suppliers like General Electric.

Those companies then launched infrastructure projects in the countries, including power grids, industrial parks and highways, which generated huge profits. But those profits ended up in the pocket of American companies and several rich local families. What those countries had was huge debts that caused suffering both for the poor and the middle class.

Sputnik: When working for Chas T. Main, an American consulting firm, you were involved in providing loans to developing countries. How large were those loans?

John Perkins: You know it’s difficult to recall because I was involved in this business back in the 1970s. The amount of a loan was different at the time. Some deals were multibillion. It depended on a country and on a particular project. For some countries, multimillion budgets were arranged to build a nationwide power grid. That included the construction of hydroelectric power plants and power distribution stations and cable installation. In such cases, it was always about big money.

Sputnik: What exactly you were doing? Could give us an example, maybe related to economic activities in Panama or Honduras? What does it look like when an “economic hitman” takes on a job in a developing country?

John Perkins: As for Panama, the plan was to build a power grid in the country and large loans were provided to the government. But the real goal in Panama was to discredit national leader Omar Torrijos, in other words to bribe him and then put him in a situation so he owed us a lot of money. So, we could blackmail and control him.

Torrijos tried to wrest the Panama Canal from the grasp of the US and return it to his country. But what was even more important, he had a reputation of a politician from a small country who could confront such a great power as the US. He was a man who wanted to return the Panama Canal to his people. But the situation was not only about the US control over the waterway. Torrijos was standing against American imperialism. He became a political and spiritual leader of a global scope.

(In 1977, Torrijos signed a deal with the US, which guaranteed that the government of Panama would have full control of the Panama Canal starting 1999. In 1981, he was killed in a car crash. Perkins was involved in activities in South America at the time. He claims that Torrijos was assassinated by the CIA. He tells this story in his book “The Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” — Sputnik)

Sputnik: That is, those loans and hence debts were used to blackmail national leaders and to control them?

John Perkins: Credits were used in many ways. Panama was an exception, because it was about the political leadership of a state. As for more suitable examples, there are Ecuador, Indonesia and Colombia where we were hunting oil. We believed there were a lot of oil fields. We managed to persuade the governments to accept our huge loans and give their oil fields in pledge. So, we usually told them, “You borrowed millions of dollars from us, and in exchange, American companies will have access to your oil at very low prices and on very moderate market conditions, without the commitment to observe any environment rules and regulations.”

When some of those countries were unable to service their debt we often said, “Ok, you may not pay now, but your country will vote to support the US at the next vote in the UN. Or you will allow the US to build a military base on your territory.” Or something else of the kind. In fact, this is a very old form of establishing control over a nation. This practice goes down in history for centuries. Many empires have used it, including the Soviet Union.

Sputnik: You were involved in such activities until 1981. Today, where do you see signs of “economic hitmen”? Are they targeting Russia?

John Perkins: Of course, Russia is in the crosshairs. And at the same time, Russia is targeting the US. Two months ago, I was speaking at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. I was on the stage with [Russian] President Vladimir Putin and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres. Putin had a pretty strong impression on me. He said: “Is Russia spying on the US. Yes, of course. Is the US spying on us? Sure. This is happening, of course.” But he also said: “Basically, this is nothing new.”

Nigel Farage has called on the EU to investigate George Soros for political meddling

0

from Hang The Bankers:

The anti-Russia hysteria that has raged in the US for just over a year now appeared poised to spread to the UK last week after British media learned that three past or present Foreign Office ministers – including Boris Johnson – had been targeted by FBI agents in their investigations into George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.

The reports aroused suspicions that the ‘Leave’ campaign may have taken money indirectly from the Russian government.

Of course, the idea that Russian efforts – part of a three-dimensional Russian plot to diminish the UK’s international influence – managed to sway the vote in favor of Brexit is just as ludicrous as the notion that $100,000 in Facebook promoted posts managed to throw the election to Trump.

And as if to underscore this point, Nigel Farage delivered a speech at the European Parliament – where he represents South East England – pointing out that George Soros’ Open Society Foundation has far more influence on elections across the Europe and the US. And if investigators are looking for evidence of foreign influence, they should start there. After all, George Soros recently signed over most of his assets – some $18 billion worth – to his OSF, which oversees a network of dozens of organizations across Europe.

And what is this money used for? Soros’ nonprofits have one mission: To promote a globalist agenda of open borders, free trade and liberal democratic values.

Speaking to the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, Farage told fellow MEPs he believes that when it comes to international collusion, “we are looking in the wrong place.” He says Soros’ influence in Brussels is “truly extraordinary,”adding: “I fear we could be looking at the biggest level of international, political collusion in history,” according to Russia Today.

Farage, the leader of the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy group in the European Parliament, believes Soros has spent billions in the EU to undermine the nation state. “When we are talking about offshore money, when we are talking about political subversion, when we are talking about collusion, I wonder if we are looking in the wrong place.

Retired FBI Agent Accuses 9/11 Commission of Lying About Saudi Connections

0

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

Sworn testimony from a former FBI investigator claims the 9/11 Commission lied to the American public regarding the relationship between the hijackers and Saudi Arabia.

The question over exactly what role the Saudi Kingdom played in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 is once again a hot topic. The Saudi Kingdom has long been suspected of financing the 9/11 hijackers. A fourteen-year-old lawsuit brought forth by the “9/11 Families and Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism” seeks to hold the Saudi Kingdom accountable for the attacks. Meanwhile, the Saudi government continues to deny any involvement and calls for the lawsuit’s dismissal.

Now, The Florida Bulldog reports that a new sworn statement from a former FBI agent has once again called attention to the involvement of the Saudi Kingdom. In a six-page statement provided as part of the lawsuit against Saudi Arabia, retired FBI agent Stephen K. Moore says the 9/11 Commission has provided the American public with incorrect statements regarding the FBI’s investigation. Moore is a 25-year veteran of the FBI who retired in 2008. He also led the FBI’s PENTTBOM, or “Pentagon/Twin Towers Bombing Investigation,” a 400-member task force responsible for investigating the 9/11 attacks.

Specifically, Moore disputed statements made by the 9/11 Commission regarding the FBI’s investigation into two Saudi hijackers – Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, two of the five men accused of crashing American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. Moore’s statements deal with Hazmi and al-Mihdhar’s connection to Saudi diplomat Fahad al-Thumairy and Omar al-Bayoumi.  Thumairy was an Imam at a Los Angeles mosque with extreme views while Bayoumi was a suspected agent of the Saudi government posing as a student.

“I have read the statements in the 9/11 Commission report that ‘we have not found evidence that Thumairy provided assistance to the two operatives (Hazmi and Mihdhar).’ In light of the proof assembled in our investigation this statement is incorrect. There was clearly evidence that Thumairy provided assistance to Hazmi and Mihdhar,” Moore said in the statement.

Here are more excerpts of Moore’s statement as reported by The Florida Bulldog:

“Based on evidence we gathered during the course of our investigation, I concluded that diplomatic and intelligence personnel of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia knowingly provided material support to the two 9/11 hijackers and facilitated the 9/11 plot. My colleagues in our investigation shared that conclusion.”

“We learned that the al Qaeda plotters were methodical in their preparations for the attacks and would not have sent Hazmi and Mihdhar to Los Angeles without a support structure in place,” Moore said. “Neither Hazmi nor Mihdhar could speak English. They were completely unfamiliar with life and customs in the United States and lacked even the most basic skills to begin pilot training. They would have had zero chance for success without a support structure.”

Interestingly, The Florida Bulldog reports that an FBI report obtained by a previous Freedom of Information Act request describes “an active investigation by federal agents and prosecutors in New York targeting a support network for Hazmi and Mihdhar.” Despite this investigation and claims that the authorities were considering filing charges against an unnamed suspect for providing material support to the hijackers, no such charges ever materialized. The declassified portions of the FBI report list three “main subjects” including the aforementioned Thumairy and Bayoumi. However, The Florida Bulldog reports that the name of the third suspect was withheld for “national security.”

Who is this third accomplice? Why were charges never filed? Why would revealing these names endanger national security? We will likely never know because, as Stephen K. Moore notes in his statement, “much of the PENTTBOM investigation remains classified.”

Activist Post recently reported that the 9/11 Families and Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism sent a letter to President Trump asking him to clarify his position on Saudi Arabia and its role in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. “This letter is inspired by news reports that today you met with Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman al Saud,” reads the letter from Terry Strada, a widow and the national chair for the 9/11 Families & Survivors. Strada’s letter continues:

As you know, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a defendant in our lawsuit because of the involvement of its agents in supporting the 9/11 hijackers, and for support that flowed to al-Qaeda through institutions the Kingdom established and funded to spread a radical form of Islam that lies at the root of both al-Qaeda and, more recently, ISIS. Despite mounting evidence, the Saudis have refused to accept accountability for their actions and the injury they have caused across the globe.

THE (OUT)HOUSE OF SAUD: THE COUP, THE OIL, AND THE MONEY

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Among the many articles I received this past week about the coup (and chaos) in Saudi Arabia, this one shared by Mr. V.T. is perhaps the one that gets down to the deep fissures that are beginning to show within the desert kingdom.  Certainly the Saudis are not stupid: investments have allowed them to penetrate significant portions of the media, of technology and space, and so on, but the bottom line for the kingdom is oil, money, and a form of Islam that has remained extreme, though in the latter instance, we’re seeing some (slow) signals of royally-approved change.

Here’s the article:

How Broke is the House of Saud?

The graphs, and increasing population, say it all:

One thing seems obvious: the House of Saud needs money. The cash flowing out to the princes is simply not available anymore. The oil price is a major factor in that. Miraculously, the weekend crackdown on dozens of princes et al, managed to do what all the OPEC meetings could not for the price of oil: push it up. But the shrinkage of foreign reserves shows a long term problem, not some momentary blip:

Another sign that money has become a real problem in Riyadh is the ever-postponed IPO of Saudi Aramco, the flagship oil company supposedly worth $2 trillion. Trump this week called on the Saudi’s to list it in New York, but despite the upsurge in oil prices you still have to wonder which part of that $2 trillion is real, and which is just fantasy.

But yeah, I know, there’s a million different stocks you can ask the same question about. Then again, seeing the wealth of some of the kingdom’s richest parties confiscated overnight can’t be a buy buy buy signal, can it? Looks like the IPO delay tells us something.

Hiding in between the lines here is the implication that a coup – with all the attendant exacerbation of tribal rivalries within the royal house – is tailor-made to drive up oil prices. Good news for the kingdom, but only in the short term. It doesn’t, and won’t, solve the long-term problems, and it’s those long term problems that I suspect are forcing the “modernization” impulses. The reason? simply put, the money is drying up, and there’s nothing to do:

And then you have the 15,000 princes and princesses who all live off of the Kingdom’s supposed riches (‘only 2,000’ profit directly). All of them live in -relative- wealth. Some more than others, but there’s no hunger in the royal family. Thing is, overall population growth outdoes even that in the royal family. Which means, since the country produces nothing except for oil, that there are 1000s upon 1000s of young people with nothing to do but spend money that’s no longer there. Cue mayhem.

In last Thursday’s News and Views from the Nefarium, I pointed out that one member of the Bin Laden family, and a stakeholder in the massive Bin Laden Group – long an ally of the royal house – was part of the round-up of those arrested for “corruption.” But that is just the tip of the iceberg of how extensive the arrests have really been:

The Saudi government is aiming to confiscate cash and other assets worth as much as $800 billion in its broadening crackdown on alleged corruption among the kingdom’s elite, according to people familiar with the matter. Several prominent businessmen are among those who have been arrested in the days since Saudi authorities launched the crackdown on Saturday, by detaining more than 60 princes, officials and other prominent Saudis, according to those people and others. The country’s central bank, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority, said late Tuesday that it has frozen the bank accounts of “persons of interest” and said the move is “in response to the Attorney General’s request pending the legal cases against them.”

Attorney General?!?!? Needless to say, this caught my eye, and it suggested to me what I suggested in my News and Views last Thursday, that whatever is happening in the kingdom, it is notunconnected to goings on elsewhere, particularly in the USA. The article seems to confirm this view that, behind the scenes, one might have to look to Washington and its own internecine “factional infighting” to find further connections:

Going through all these numbers, you can imagine why the ruling family, or rather the rulers within that family, are getting nervous. And that’s where we get to an interesting piece by Ryan Grim at the Intercept, who says it’s not even 32-year-old crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, known as MBS, or King Salman, 81, who control the kingdom these days, it’s the United Arab Emirates (UAE) –and maybe Washington-. (Emphasis added)

The connections not only run all the way to potential implications in the Las Vegas shooting, as I averred in the News and Views last Thursday, but also to the Trump administration and Israel, which, according to the article, may be loosely tied to Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s drive for “reforms”:

The platitudes about reform were also challenged by recent mass arrests of religious figures and repression of anything that has remotely approached less than full support of MBS. The latest purge comes just days after White House adviser Jared Kushner, a close ally of Otaiba, visited Riyadh, and just hours after a bizarre-even-for-Trump tweet. Whatever legitimate debate there was about MBS ended Saturday — his drive to consolidate power is now too obvious to ignore. And that puts denizens of Washington’s think tank world in a difficult spot, as they have come to rely heavily on the Saudi and UAE end of the bargain.

As The Intercept reported earlier, one think tank alone, the Middle East Institute, got a massive $20 million commitment from the UAE. And make no mistake, MBS is a project of the UAE — an odd turn of events given the relative sizes of the two countries. “Our relationship with them is based on strategic depth, shared interests, and most importantly the hope that we could influence them. Not the other way around,” Otaiba has said privately.

Now add to this explosive mixture the internal rivalries within the (out)House of Saud itself, and its disastrous foreign policies in the past few years:
