‘Your Papers Please’ – Mass Tracking starting in 15 Countries

COVI-PASS will determine whether you can go to a restaurant, if you need a medical test, or are due for a talking-to by authorities in a post-COVID world. Consent is voluntary, but enforcement will be compulsory.

The old slippery slope. What possibly could go wrong? Bill Gates has his dream come true.

A British cybersecurity company, in partnership with several tech firms, is rolling out the COVI-PASS in 15 countries across the world; a “digital health passport” that will contain your COVID-19 test history and other “relevant health information.” According to the company website, the passport’s objective is “to safely return to work” and resume “social interactions” by providing authorities with “up-to-date and authenticated health information.”

15 countries, including Italy, Portugal, France, Panama, India, the US, Canada, Sweden, Spain, South Africa, Mexico, United Arab Emirates and The Netherlands, the company reports. From  Healthcare in Europe

Papers Please – Done in 2009

These objectives mirror those that Bill Gates has been promoting since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown. In an essay written by Gates in April, the software geek-cum-philanthropist lays out his support for the draconian measures taken in response to the virus and, like an old-timey mob boss, suggests the solutions to this deliberately imposed problem.

Ironically, Gates begins to make his case for the adoption of mass tracking and surveillance technology in the U.S. by saying that “For now, the United States can follow Germany’s example”; He then touts the advantages of the “voluntary adoption of digital tools” so we can “remember where [we] have been” and can “choose to share it with whoever comes to interview you about your contacts.”

De Blasio tells wife Chirlane decide fate of NYC statues of Washington, Jefferson

 

This should work out. Recall just last year Chirlane was determining the look of the city with new statutes. See, they wanted to “equalize” the number of male statutes. Last year the sex of the statute was at issue. This year we have moved on. Anything to destroy our culture. I will include a bit of last years post:

First lady Chirlane McCray will put statues and structures honoring historic figures tainted by slavery — including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson — under the microscope as part of a new “Commission on Racial Justice and Reconciliation,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday.

Hizzoner’s move comes a day after five city lawmakers — including City Council Speaker Corey Johnson — sent a letter requesting the statue of Jefferson be removed from the council’s chamber, as leaders across the city and nation struggle to respond to weeks of protests over racism that followed the death of George Floyd….

De Blasio said that would include examining City Hall’s statue of Washington and the name of the mayoral residence, Gracie Mansion, which was built and owned by a slave owner, Archibald Gracie.

When pressed by reporters, de Blasio acknowledged he was not sure how far the review should go, but said it was time to examine the “profound contradictions” of the city and nation’s forefathers. More at  New York Post

Flashback… just last year….

NYC Mayor’s wife choses ‘Drag Queens’ for Statues over Saints

The real heroines for de Blasio’s wife are drag queens and abortion rights activists. How many tax payer bucks are going to supposedly ‘equalize’ the number of male statues to female statues in the city? Who is going to create these statues since the mayor’s wife doesn’t have exactly a good track record. De Blasio’s wife and the case of missing 850 million in taxpayers money

Francesca Xavier Cabrini and other female icons were denied honorary statues after a group controlled by First Lady Chirlane McCray tossed out the revered Catholic sister in favor of more women of color and a drag queen-turned-LGBTQ activist.

Cabrini was America’s first saint, a tireless advocate who founded an upstate orphanage, a school for girls in Washington Heights and 67 organizations for the needy in the late 1880s.
But she wasn’t good enough to be named one of New York’s seven most important women.

This despite Cabrini getting the most votes in a poll of New Yorkers on who should be included.

Also denied were poll leaders Emily Warren Roebling, who led the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge, and Manhattan Music School founder Janet Schenck. Instead, they selected abortion rights activist Dr. Helen Rodriguez Trías and drag queens Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, among others, making clear what their criteria were.

Everything swell in the swamp. A-OK.

 

Facebook Took Down Trump Campaign Ad For “Organized Hate” Violation

 

We sure are getting the election season off to a good start. Does anyone really think that the Trump reelection campaign had in mind to use a Nazi symbol? After Trump has done more for Israel than any President in recent memory? Just an excuse,

Another salvo coming Trump’s way. Zero Hedge picked up this story and I am sure it put the left wing knickers in a knot as they are doing their best to de-platform them with Google in their cross-hairs regarding ad revenue. So here is one for them:

CNN just confirmed a report initially published by the NY Daily News that Facebook removed a Trump 2020 campaign ad over violations of its “organized hate” policy.

Apparently, Facebook deemed that the red upside down triangle is associated with the holocaust after a far-left group posing as a ‘human rights’ organization accused Trump of “campaigning for the 2020 election using a Nazi concentration camp symbol”.

The Washington Post’s inquiry appears to have prompted Facebook to censor the post, according to a company spokesman who spoke with WaPo.

A red inverted triangle was first used in the 1930s to identify Communists, and was applied as well to Social Democrats, liberals, Freemasons and other members of opposition parties. The badge forced on Jewish political prisoners, by contrast, featured a yellow triangle overlaid by a red triangle.

In response to queries from The Washington Post, Facebook on Thursday afternoon deactivated ads that included the inverted red triangle.

The red symbol appeared in paid posts sponsored by Trump and Vice President Pence, as well as by the “Team Trump” campaign page. It was featured alongside text warning of “Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups” and asking users to sign a petition about antifa, a loose collection of anti-fascist activists whom the Trump administration has sought to link to recent violence, despite arrest records that show their involvement is trivial.

“We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate,” said Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesman. “Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.”

However, the Trump campaign (which was quoted in the WaPo article), responded with clear examples of Antifa merchandise bearing the upside down red triangle in question, which one of Trump’s campaign reps described as “an antifa symbol”.

Nuggets of Madness from the Revolution

Not much to add to the madness overtaking the country. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, here are some pictures that if I had not seen them I would say it was not possible. Then we have cities disbanding police forces? No doubt Sharia will come in and take care of everything. I have no more words. Soldiers and police kneeling and prostrating themselves.

Antifa – Nuggets from the Weekend

Time for an explaining as to who Antifa is and from whence comes their support. Busses roll into town with these anarchists. Soros we have been told has been spending big bucks. So why has there not been a congressional investigation?

Now we hear AG Keith Ellison will head up the prosecution. Explain this tweet.

And with that Coronavirus gets wiped off the news map. This after hunkering down for months, forced by the government. Not so much now.

Here is the memo given to the Antifa foot soldiers it has been reported.

The best news nuggets from the weekend you may have missed

 

A few of the low points of the weekend. This is your source for all the bizarre news you may have missed.

Let’s end with a laugh and giggle.

Joe Biden suffered an awkward moment on Friday when his earpiece came out of place during an interview and he did not realize it.

During an appearance on CNBC, the device could be seen sticking out of his left ear:

 

 

He turned his head, speaking to someone off camera, and the earpiece pulled farther away.

“I’m having trouble hearing you. I do apologize.”

The host said they would “try to get the volume turned up.”

Lawless Planned Parenthood continues its wicked ways

 

Ripping off the SBA of late is just the tip of the iceberg. Let’s take a walk back and look at a just few of the illegal moves Planned Parenthood has made over the last years. Some old posts of mine. The latest:

Did Planned Parenthood knowingly defraud the Small Business Administration by having 37 affiliates acquire $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection ProgramA letter from 27 Senate Republicans to the Department of Justice lay out a case against the abortion chain, arguing that not only did the PPP disqualify Planned Parenthood from the program, the company complained publicly about the exclusion. That makes a prima facie case for criminal fraud, they argue, in a letter first published by National Review’s Alexandra de Sanctis:

According to this letter, a copy of which was provided exclusively to National Review, more than two dozen GOP senators want Barr to investigate and prosecute “those who would fraudulently steal millions of dollars in taxpayer funds during this pandemic.”

Lawless Planned Parenthood failed to report expenditures to Clinton and Feingold

So we give a 500 million dollars to Planned Parenthood and the “political arm” contributes to the golden arm of the Democratic party and one Hillary Clinton and this case tries to unseat Sen. Ron Johnson. This from 2016 Planned Parenthood gets over $500 million annually in public funds …

Of course the latest spending bill did nothing to slow Planned Parenthood down. Just how and why do they need a “political arm?” And why are they allowed to remain above the law?

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) says the political arm of Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin has been fined for failing to report nearly $120,000 in expenditures to support Hillary Clinton in her failed presidential bid and Russ Feingold’s failed attempt to unseat Sen. Ron Johnson (R).

The FEC report states, “Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin Political Fund failed to file two 48-Hour Reports to support independent expenditures totaling $116,898.08 disclosed on the 2016 October Quarterly Report.”

In a letter to Barnes, the FEC notes a negotiated penalty of $5,850 is due April 6 from the Planned Parenthood group. H/T: Breitbart

Remember this? Clinton pays Planned Parenthood campaign funds to ‘get out the vote’

Planned Parenthood paid millions in Medicaid fraud settlements 

Alliance Defending Freedom’s recent analysis of state and federal audits of family planning programs suggests that in 12 states, Planned Parenthood affiliates overbilled Medicaid for more than $8 million. One federal audit of New York’s Medicaid family planning program reported that certain providers, “especially Planned Parenthoods,” had engaged in improper practices resulting in overpayment.

There’s a whopping four-paragraph story headlined:

“Planned Parenthood finalizes $4.3 million lawsuit settlement.” That was an update of the earlier story they ran — the seven-sentence AP story that said the settlement was $1.3 million.

Hemingway summarized it perfectly:

Isn’t it just fascinating, though, that a private breast cancer charity (Susan B. Komen foundation) choosing to not give money to a massively federally funded group (that provides 300,000 abortions a year but zero mammograms) is top of the news for weeks — complete with breathless advocacy from reporters and anchors — but Medicaid fraud in the millions of dollars barely registers even the tiniest of blips in the news cycle? What’s the journalistic defense, if any?

Planned Parenthood lies, does not provide Mammograms

Just a few weeks ago, on national television, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said this about Rep. Mike Pence’s amendment to defund Planned Parenthood:

“If this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are gonna lose their health care access–not to abortion services–to basic family planning, you know, mammograms.”

Yet this is blatantly false.

We got a tip from former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, that Planned Parenthood does not provide any mammogram services. Just to be sure, our investigative team called up 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in many major metropolitan areas. Every single one of the clinics told our actor that no, they do not provide mammograms. “We don’t provide those services whatsoever,” one staffer in Arizona said.

Finally this gruesome story about Planned Parenthood:

DOJ indicts 15 in ‘Chop Chop’ for eagles, fails to charge against sale of baby parts 

DOJ indicts 15 in ‘Chop Shop’ for eagles, fails to charge against sale of baby parts

In this grisly story, we learn that the DOJ apparently is more concerned about the sale of illegal bird body parts than parts of aborted babies even thought they are ten times more valuable:

The Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) has yet to respond to letters from the chairs of congressional committees that made criminal referrals regarding allegations that Planned Parenthood and its partners in the biomedical procurement industry profited from the sale of the body parts of aborted babies.

 

In a stunning contrast, however, the DOJ has indicted 15 individuals for illegally trafficking the body parts of eagles and other migratory birds.

In April, following a two-year undercover operation known as Project Dakota Flyer, the U.S. Attorney’s office in South Dakota announced the indictments of 15 individuals for illegally trafficking eagle body parts.

The indictments in the eagle body parts trafficking cases are based on “the sale and purchase of wildlife with a market value in excess of $350,” while the CMP videos and the congressional committees showed StemExpress to be selling the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood for prices in excess of $500.

In one exhibit, the House Select Panel’s investigation highlighted the fees paid for the baby body parts by the procurement businesses to the abortion clinics, and then the fees charged by the procurement businesses to their customers for those same parts.

“The records subpoenaed by Congress show Planned Parenthood making ten times more money off of baby body parts than the amounts that got the eagle traffickers indicted, and companies like StemExpress sell aborted baby body parts from Planned Parenthood at prices far higher than the eagle body parts traffickers are charged with,” Daleiden explains to Breitbart News.

In the illegal eagle trafficking cases, U.S. Attorney Seiler accused the defendants of a lack of reverence for the eagles – a national symbol.

‘‘There was no cultural sensitivity,” he said. “There was no spirituality.’

Other than this all is well in the swamp.

Liz Cheney: ‘Dr. Fauci is one of the finest public servants we have ever had’

Liz Cheney strikes again. She supports Dr. Fauci as we watch our economy tank. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane with Liz.

Liz, what are Dr. Fauci’s connections to Big Pharma? How involved is he in vaccine manufacturing? Why should we trust someone who stands to benefit so much from our isolation and demise?

Let’s not forget her support for Vindman of impeachment fame,

No doubt he brought with him to the Capital tricks and not treats.

Our stalwart Mustang makes  this observation:

LtCol Alexander Vindman, who works as an “area expert” on the NSC Staff in matter pertaining to Russia and Ukraine, has a twin-brother, who is LtCol Yevgeny Vindman who is also assigned to the NSC Staff as a lawyer responsible for “ethnical complaints.”   
So when Alexander testified that he took his concerns about the Trump phone call to the NSC Staff legal department, he actually took the complaint to his twin brother whose job it is to address ethical complaints.
Honestly, if this doesn’t sound like a conspiracy, then I don’t know what does.
Found information on Wikipedia.
Vindman is married. His identical twin brother, Yevgeny S. Vindman, is an Army lieutenant colonel and JAG Officer who is assigned as an attorney on the National Security Council staff handling ethics issues.[3][22] Vindman has an older brother, Leonid Vindman, who was also commissioned as an officer in the Army.[22]
We learn now that Ukraine wanted Vindman to be their Minister of Defense.. three times they asked him.. Cozy..
Just a comment. In the hearing he stated his so called war injuries were so great he went back to work the next day.

Liz Cheney condemns attacks questioning Alexander Vindman’s loyalty to US

The Institute for the Study of War.

Just what is the  Institute for the Study of War? Unfortunately,  much of their original information disappeared from their website. Thanking various military contractors for hosting dinners, and of course Liz Cheney’s name and picture are no longer prominently displayed. (Information is from an old post done back in 2013.)

We are on the front lines of military thinking.

Our Mission

“The Institute for the Study of War advances an informed understanding of military affairs through reliable research, trusted analysis, and innovative education. We are committed to improving the nation’s ability to execute military operations and respond to emerging threats in order to achieve U.S. strategic objectives. ISW is a non-partisan, non-profit, public policy research organization.”

According to 2011 tax documents, directors included: Elizabeth Cheney, daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney and founder of the right-wing advocacy group Keep America SafeWilliam Kristol, editor of the neoconservative flagship magazine the Weekly StandardJack Keane, a retired four-star general who coauthored with Frederick Kagan of the American Enterprise Institute “Choosing Victory,” a 2007 study that served as a blueprint for the so-called “surge” in Iraq; Dennis Showalter, a military historian; Hal Hirsch; Bill Roberti; and Kim Kagan.

According to its 2011 Form 990, ISW had operating expenses of just under $1.9 million that year, up from $1.57 in 2010.

A non-exhaustive Right Web investigation of Form 990 U.S. tax records revealed nearly $700,000 in donations from charitable foundations during 2007-2009.

ISW has increasingly drawn support from military contractors with stakes in the issues that the institute studies.

“According to ISW’s last annual report,” noted Consortium News in December 2012, “its original supporters were mostly right-wing foundations, such as the Smith-Richardson Foundation and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, but it now is backed by national security contractors, including major ones like Raytheon, General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman and CACI, as well as lesser-known firms such as DynCorp International, which provides training for Afghan police, and Palantir, a technology company founded with the backing of the CIA’s venture-capital arm, In-Q-Tel. Palantir supplies software to U.S. military intelligence in Afghanistan.”[18]

Donations included nearly $180,000 from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a premier neoconservative advocacy group, as well as $60,000 from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, a right-wing foundation that has funded other militarist outfits like the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and Daniel Pipes’ Middle East Forum, earning it a spot among the top funders of the anti-Islamic discourse in the United States according to a 2011 report by the Center for American Progress. The Marcus Foundation, which has also supported MEMRI, contributed another $250,000 to ISW during this period.

Tucker Carlson blind sides Trey Gowdy on his conflicting Russiagate stories

 

Tucker flattens Gowdy last night and it was a beautiful thing. Yesterday I posted that Gaetz pulled the first string on Gowdy’s unraveling at the end of the Hannity program on Friday.Representative Gaetz blasts Gowdy, Ryan for not using subpoenas

Didn’t take the drums long to start to pound on Hannity’s program and he was quickly wisked off the air….. I will add a few portions of earlier posts just to tie the bow on the package.

Here we go with Tucker last night…….

 

 

Trey Gowdy, Judge Napalitano flip on Trump – ‘Mueller doing it by the book’

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) recently suggested the FBI did nothing wrong when it used at least one government informant to secretly collect information on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Public reports indicate, however, that Gowdy never even reviewed the relevant documents on the matter subpoenaed by Congress. In fact, a spokeswoman for Gowdy told The Federalist that the congressman doesn’t even know what documents and records were subpoenaed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

The briefing Gowdy and other lawmakers attended was scheduled at the behest of the White House after the Department of Justice (DOJ) obstructed the subpoena.

Activists and journalists were thrilled with Gowdy’s comments exonerating the FBI, claiming they “debunked” any concerns that people have about FBI behavior. CNN’s Manu Raju claimed, without providing evidence, that Gowdy had “seen the intel.”

 

 

Here we have Napolitano on Gowdy’s disputing of Trump’s ‘spygate’ claims. Included clips from the field day the MSM is having with it.

 

I guess we knew this was coming. Earlier this year:

Many of us bloggers wondered why the story

Uranium One Informant spills the beans yesterday to congress, no recording taken  

Guess who is chair of the Committee and the members? Guess who is retiring? The likely suspects?

  • Trey Gowdy, South Carolina, Chair.
  • Jimmy Duncan, Tennessee.
  • Darrell Issa, California.
  • Jim Jordan, Ohio.
  • Mark Sanford, South Carolina.
  • Justin Amash, Michigan.
  • Paul Gosar, Arizona.
  • Scott DesJarlais, Tennessee.

I will let you connect the dots….. Gowdy has been on Trump’s tail and throwing him under the bus all week, why?

 

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

 

 

Representative Gaetz blasts Gowdy, Ryan for not using subpoenas

 

Gaetz nails Gowdy. On Friday as Hannity was wrapping up with Gaetz, Gaetz lays it on.This right after having Gowdy on with Hannity praising what wonderful questioning of witnesses Gowdy had done. Here is one of the best take downs from the weekend. Gowdy is now the big man on campus and has moved on to make his bucks at Fox. Are we to forget?

Of course Goodlatte and Gowdy moved on.

Two top Republican chairmen stressed Friday that the final report from special counsel Robert Mueller “must be trusted by Americans.”

In closing out their joint committee investigation into decisions made by the Justice Department, Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., took a shot at their Democratic counterparts for playing up concerns that their probe was a campaign to undermine Mueller.

“Contrary to Democrat and media claims, there has been no effort to discredit the work of the Special Counsel,” Gowdy and Goodlatte wrote in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, and the DOJ inspector general. “Quite the opposite, whatever product is produced by the Special Counsel must be trusted by Americans and that requires asking tough but fair questions about investigative techniques both employed and not employed.”

The two retiring Republicans said their committees “have assiduously avoided interfering with any ongoing criminal, counter-intelligence, administrative, or judicial reviews of conduct engaged in 2016 or 2017.”

 

Other than than this, all is well in the swamp.
