Gold Dinar: the Real Reason Behind Gaddafi’s Murder

This information was discovered through Hillary Clinton’s electronic mailbox. One of the 3000 emails showed NATO’s willingness to overthrow Gaddafi’s government. NATO mainly wanted to to neutralize the African gold currency supported by Libyan oil reserves.

The gold dinar: a groundbreaking initiative

In 2009, Colonel Gaddafi, then President of the African Union, suggested to the States of the African continent to switch to a new currency, independent of the American dollar: the gold dinar.

The objective of this new currency was to divert oil revenues towards state-controlled funds rather than American banks. In other words, to stop using the dollar for oil transactions. Countries such as Nigeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Angola were ready to change their currencies. Unfortunately in March 2011, the NATO-led coalition began a military intervention in Libya in the name of freedom….

Free water, almost free gasoline, free health system and free education were commonplace for Libyans under Gaddafi’s dictatorship.

The leader, who has been in power for 41 years, has managed to gain the support of all the major tribes and buy social peace through radical measures and a…

I’m on Hunger Strike in Guantanamo

Illustration of Ahmed Rabbani cooking with Guantanamo fencing behind, in pastJared Rodriguez/Truthout

By Truthout

There are very few freedoms at Guantánamo Bay prison, where I have been held without charge or trial — referred to as Guantánamo ISN 1461 — for over 16 years. The right to starve myself is one of them, but even then, they force-feed me, to spare themselves the embarrassment of my death.

Back in Pakistan, before I was kidnapped and tortured and flown halfway around the world in chains, I loved cooking. There is nothing more satisfying than preparing a hot meal for your family and sharing it with them. Here, I am allowed to cook for my fellow prisoners, but only in a microwave, and the guards could take even that away at any time. I never eat the food myself. I have been on hunger strike for seven years in protest at my indefinite detention. When everything else has been taken from you, this small measure of self-determination means a lot.

I was abducted from my home on September 10, 2002, and sold to the U.S. for a bounty, with the false story that I was a terrorist called Hassan Ghul. As a result of that, I was taken to the Dark Prison in Kabul, and tortured for 540 days. I refused to say I was Hassan Ghul because I wasn’t. Eventually the U.S. captured Ghul, and because he was deemed “cooperative,” they let him go. He went back to his old ways, and was killed by a drone in 2012.

I was rendered to Guantánamo in September 2004. I tried to obey the prison’s foolish rules for a long time before I gave up. I began hunger striking in earnest in 2013 when my patience finally ran out. Twice a day, they strap me into their torture chair and force a 110-centimeter tube up my nose.

My lawyers have now created a website where, as I approach 3,000 days on strike, you can follow my gradual disappearance. I was 170 pounds when they first seized me, and I am now down to 80 pounds. This means that 53 percent of me has “escaped” from this prison. It can’t go on forever of course, and I hope that I don’t get shipped home in a coffin — but I have to do something to peacefully protest.

The Cultural Roots of Brexit and Make America Great Again

I Can’t Get You Out of My Head

Part 5 The Lordly Ones

Directed by Adam Curtis (2021)

Film Review

Part 5 traces the ideological origins of Brexit and Trump’s Make America Great Again campaign.

Curtis maintains the American and British middle class have yet to come to grips with  their unconscious guilt over colonialism and slavery. Instead they paper over these feelings with a nostalgic nationalism harkening back to a mythical past that predates the rise of mass democracy.

In post-World War I Britain, this took the form of heightened interest in rural folk music and dancing (eg Morris Dancing). Examples in the US include the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan following the release of D W Griffith’s 1915 film Birth of a Nation. The twentieth century Klan copied the white robes and hoods and cross-burning from Griffith’s film, based on medieval Scottish rituals described in Thomas Dixon Jr’s novel The Clansmen.

Although Britain lost her empire following World War II, British intelligence maintained the appearance of power by creating a magical world in which they could bug, burgle and even assassinate enemies – just as the Empire had done.

Like the UK, the US also uses its spies to maintain the fiction of US supremacy. Since its formation in 1947, the CIA has made 66 attempts to overthrow foreign governments via and/or vote rigging. They were successful in 26 (including Italy, Greece, Syria, Indonesia, Chile and Iran).

Curtis believes this US/British tendency to make real life decisions based on a romanticized past was largely responsible for the debacle in Iraq.

Part 5 also traces how the brutal effects of deindustrialization marginalized nearly the entire working class in both countries. Trump would appeal to these workers by promising to recreate a lost America, just as Brexit promised to restore Britain’s lost greatness by leaving the EU.

The system is rigged, so it is time for community banks and people power

Contrary to popular belief, private bank create 97-98% of money in circulation out of thin air when they issue loans. See 97% Owned

hilarywhitehead

Instead of being dictated to by corrupt politicians who actually work for corporations, there needs to be a fairer system that works for the community and is operated by the community and public banks need to be set up.Below Professor Werner, the author of Princes of the Yen, describes his findings on finance.

Brilliant interview here Prof. Richard Werner explains the banking system

In this interview Prof Werner goes into the history of banking in England and the law which governs it, which is very revealing and not what the banks of today are following, and they only support the big projects it seems. Community banking is the answer going forward to support community projects. Regulation is needed he says for the big banks and too much regulation has been given to the smaller banks, in fact the ECB has been saying there are too many banks, probably because…

White House Plan To Charge Journalists for COVID Tests Sparks Outrage

According to the Washington Post, this could include as many as eight crew members for a TV network: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/media/white-house-press-covid-tests/2021/02/26/d623f316-7855-11eb-948d-19472e683521_story.html

Biden administration holds 1st press briefing

The Sacramento Brie

Beginning March 1st, the White House will charge each member of the press corps that enters the White House grounds $170 for required COVID testing every time they enter. An anonymous source inside the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) had this to say:

“This new policy is outrageous. We’ve been reporting what they told us to for decades, and now we have to pay for the privilege?

Another source with access to confidential WHCA correspondence, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said this:

“We’ve humiliated ourselves for years, but daily anal swabbing by the White House COVID Rapid Testing Team, led by Dr. Jill Biden, is too much. This isn’t China, and we don’t care if Representative Swalwell pays $500 a day to have has his anus swabbed by his Chinese intelligence handlers.”

The WHCA is planning a demonstration on Sunday, Feb 28th, to protest the new policy. Pre-printed…

Deceit & Corruption – Every time we follow the money it leads us to Bill Gates

 

The Daily Expose

William Henry Gates III a.k.a Bill Gates is an American billionaire who founded the Microsoft Corporation in 1975, which went on to become the world’s largest personal computer software company. Gates lead the company as chairman and CEO until the year 2000 where he resigned from his role as CEO. Bill kept his role as chairman and also became the chief software architect, but by June 2006 he announced that he would be transitioning to a part-time role at Microsoft and going full steam ahead with a new project…the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.


Gates formed the ‘William H. Gates Foundation’ in 1994 after studying the work of Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller. Rockefeller being the godfather of the pharmaceutical industry.

Rockefeller, who had made his money in oil decided to venture into the medical industry. When vitamin C was first artificially synthesized in Switzerland in 1935, Rockefeller saw the chance to control and monopolize multiple industries at once: petroleum, chemical and medical.  How? He knew that vitamins and medication could be developed from petroleum and so he put his plan in motion.

But Rockefeller had a battle on his hands as natural and herb medicines were extremely popular in the US during the early 1900’s and almost 50% of medical colleges and doctors in the US were practicing holistic medicine, using knowledge that had been gained from Europe and Native American traditions.

Rockefeller knew he had to taint the reputation of his competition in order to get a hold of the medical industry so he used his vast fortune to purchase part of the German pharmaceutical company I.G.Farben and hired a contractor named Abraham Flexner to submit a report to the US Congress in 1910 which concluded that there were too many doctors and medical schools in the US and that all natural healing modalities which had existed for hundreds of years were “unscientific quackery”.

Money talks of course and congress changed laws relating to medical practice and ‘allopathic’ medicine (modern pharmaceuticals) became the standard of choice. Rockefeller then started funding medical schools all over the US on one strict condition – they were to only teach allopathic medicine.

Rockefeller then set upon a smear campaign via the mainstream media against homeopathy and natural medicines. The smear campaign worked so well that some doctors were imprisoned for practicing natural medicine.

And that is how one man managed to kick-start the ‘Big Pharma’ industry of the modern world in which the answer to everyone’s ailments and illnesses is chemicals and synthetic drugs.

So isn’t it interesting how Rockefeller’s work inspired another billionaire to start out on a similar venture?

Bill Gates combined the William H. Gates Foundation with two other family foundations to create the ‘Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’ in the year 2000 in which Gates donated stock valued at $5 billion.

Which brings us to the present day. We are over a year into the alleged Covid-19 pandemic and one man has been ever present throughout in support of vaccines being the answer to the alleged problem.

But what concerns us the most is that whenever we follow the money in connection to some big mainstream players in the response to this alleged pandemic it leads us back to the same man… Bill Gates.

You may or may not have heard of Event 201? Event 201 was an exercise conducted on October 18th 2019 in New York. The exercise being the simulation of a high-level pandemic of a new and emerging coronavirus. It’s apparent aim was to illustrate areas where public/private partnerships would be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.

Now the fact that a supposed new and emerging coronavirus dubbed SARS-CoV-2 allegedly spread around the globe just a few months after conducting a simulation of the exact same thing is a little too coincidental for our liking. We don’t believe in coincidences. Which is why we weren’t shocked to find that Event 201 was carried out by the John Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and of course – the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Pfizer CEO: ‘Every Year You Will Have to Get Your Annual Shot for COVID’

By Megan Redshaw, J.D.

Pfizer said this week it’s begun testing a third dose of its COVID vaccine and a new modified version to address variants for years to come.

In a press release, Pfizer stated its goal was to understand the effect of a booster on immunity against COVID caused by the circulating and newly emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants and to engage in ongoing discussions with the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency regarding a clinical trial to test a modified mRNA vaccine.

Pfizer director and board member Scott Gottlieb, who also served as former FDA commissioner in charge of vaccine approval, told CNBC the vaccine maker is exploring two paths to boost effectiveness of the COVID vaccine.

The first study will give 144 participants from the phase 1 clinical trial conducted last May a third lower-dosage of the current two-dose formulation. The second study involves testing a modified version of the existing vaccine designed to provide broad defense against a range of COVID mutations.

Pfizer hopes to prepare for a potential rapid adoption of the vaccine to address new variants that will allow for the development of booster vaccines within weeks. This “regulatory pathway” is already established for other infectious diseases like influenza, said the vaccine maker.

Pfizer’s CEO hopes a third dose will boost the immune response even higher or will offer protection against COVID variants.

“Every year, you need to go to get your flu vaccine,” Bourla said. “It’s going to be the same with COVID. In a year, you will have to go and get your annual shot for Covid to be protected,” Bourla told NBC News.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine is not yet licensed by the FDA but has obtained Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to prevent COVID-19 for use in ages 16 years and older. The emergency use of this vaccine is only authorized as long as “circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use.”

New York Times Blasted for Citing ‘Unpublished Research’ Inciting Fear About New COVID Variant

By Megan Redshaw, J.D.

After other media outlets picked up the New York Times article about a “worrisome” new virus variant allegedly spreading throughout the city, scientists and health officials blasted the paper for inciting fear based on unpublished, non-peer-reviewed studies.

The Times cited studies from two teams of researchers. One study, posted online Tuesday, was led by a group of researchers at the California Institute of Technology. The other study, which had been obtained by the Times but not yet made public, came from a group of researchers at Columbia University.

Neither study had been peer reviewed, published in a scientific journal or shared with public officials before being published by the Times, according to NBC New York.

Lawyers Promise ‘Nuremberg Trials’ Against All Behind COVID Scam

Written by Jean-Michel Grau
Principia Scientic

Right now, a second Nuremberg tribunal that is in preparation, with a class action lawsuit being set up under the aegis of thousands of lawyers worldwide behind the American-German lawyer Reiner Fuellmich, who is prosecuting those responsible for the Covid-19 scandal manipulated by the Davos Forum.

In this respect, it is worth recalling that Reiner Fuellmich is the lawyer who succeeded in condemning the automobile giant Volkswagen in the case of the tampered catalytic converters. And it is this same lawyer who succeeded in condemning Deutsche Bank as a criminal enterprise.

According to Reiner Fuellmich, all the frauds committed by German companies are derisory compared to the damage that the Covid-19 crisis has caused and continues to cause. This Covid-19 crisis should be renamed the “Covid-19 Scandal” and all those responsible should be prosecuted for civil damages due to manipulations and falsified test protocols. Therefore, an international network of business lawyers will plead the biggest tort case of all time, the Covid-19 fraud scandal, which has meanwhile turned into the biggest crime against humanity ever committed.

A Covid-19 commission of inquiry has been set up on the initiative of a group of German lawyers with the aim of bringing an international class action lawsuit using Anglo-Saxon law.
