The Campaign Against HCQ

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought out many disturbing features of our society. Misinformation, or perhaps more accurately, disinformation, abounds in the service of agendas ranging from those who interpret the virus as a useful ploy for the construction of a police state, to Big Pharma and its allies who are moving us toward mass vaccinations, to the narcissistic views of those who would sacrifice the elderly and ill rather than to be inconvenienced by being denied access to bars and beaches.  Every aspect of the pandemic, including Trump’s own use of HCQ, is being used against the President of the United States. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2020/05/20/mcenany_media_mocks_trump_for_taking_hydroxychloroquine_doesnt_criticize_chris_cuomo_for_taking_less_safe_version.html?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=mixi&utm_campaign=realclearpolitics 

BIG TECH GOES PINKO: Twitter actively hiring communists and banning accounts of humanitarian dissidents, while Facebook bans videos of human rights champion Jennifer Zeng

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

The tech giants — Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube and Apple — are no longer hiding the fact that they are propaganda arms of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which engages in organ harvesting, the torture of political dissidents and the mass murder of Falun Gong followers.

Over just the last few days, a string of stunning actions by various Big Tech companies has ripped the curtain off the real agenda of the tech giants, exposing their overt, malicious behavior that favors communist China while punishing and silencing the American people.

Coronavirus Uses Same Strategy As HIV To Evade, Cripple Immune System: Chinese Study Finds

from ZeroHedge:

Back on February 1, when the coronavirus pandemic was only just starting to attract broader attention and the China-influenced mainstream media was still politically inclined to minimize the severity of the disease before pulling a sharp U-turn and now going full bore with a narrative of just how dangerous it is for the Trump administration to reopen the economy (because if the economy recovers by November, Trump just might get re-elected), we published an article referencing an Arxiv pre-print which found that the covid-19 genome contained “HIV Insertions”, stoking fears that the virus was an artificially created bioweapon. While the mere suggestion that this virus was man-made – nevermind sharing discrete segments of its genetic structure with HIV – sparked outrage among the well-paid mercenary enforcers of the First Amendment known as “fact-checkers” who are employed by such biased organizations as Twitter and Facebook to stifle any line of inquiry that runs contrary to whatever dominant narrative has been blessed by the Zuckerbergs and Dorseys of the world, it was none other than the man who discovered the HIV virus back in 1983, that confirmed our suspicions saying that “the virus was man-made.”

The Fed Made Loans to Wall Street on Over 90 Percent Margin in 2008 – It Could Be Happening Now

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

If you are an individual and you want to buy stocks on margin at a brokerage firm in the U.S., under Federal Reserve Board Regulation T the brokerage firm can lend you a maximum of 50 percent of the total initial purchase price. Not all stocks are eligible for margin. There are also maintenance margin requirements imposed by the industry, stock exchanges and the brokerage house itself if the stock value drops after the initial purchase, which could trigger a margin call and subject you to having to deposit more cash or securities under penalty of having your account liquidated at a loss.)

We Are Being Told To Prepare “To See High Prices At Grocery Stores” And “It’s Likely That Shortages May Only Get Worse”

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

If you have been to a grocery store lately, then you already know that prices are higher than usual and that there are shortages of certain items.  Many Americans have been assuming that as COVID-19 restrictions are slowly rolled back that these shortages will eventually disappear, but now even the Washington Post is admitting that “shortages may get worse” in the weeks and months ahead.  Of course there will still be plenty of food available in the grocery stores, but you may have to do without some of your favorite products for a while.  And you should also brace yourself for significantly higher prices for many of the products that do remain available.  As WBTV has noted, this will especially be true for basic meat staples such as ground beef and chicken…
