    Buy your own treasury bills. Lower the price of money. Pump up asset prices. Limit supply. Cripple food production. Is it any wonder that financial analysts are percolating up through the noise? They only get paid if they get it right, and the buyer ain’t yo mama.

    I watched this twice. Two hours.

  3. BioNTech, the German Pharmaceutical company that teamed up with Pfizer to develop the first widely used Covid-19 vaccine, on Wednesday reported strong quarterly earnings growth on pandemic-fuelled demand.

    The company posted net profit of nearly 3.2 BILLION euros ($3.6 billion) for the final 3 months of 2021, up from 367 million euros in the same period the previous year. Earning per share rose to 12.18 euros from 1.43 euros a year ago. Quarterly revenue rose to 5.5 billion euros from 345.4 million euros previously.

  4. Teacher at Pakistan school killed for ‘blasphemy’: police

    A teacher at an all-girls religious school was killed by a woman colleague and two students who accused her of blasphemy, Pakistan police said Wednesday, the latest murder in the country related to the hugely sensitive issue.

    Few issues in Pakistan are as galvanising as blasphemy, and even the slightest suggestion of an insult to Islam can supercharge protests and incite lynchings.

    The latest incident took place Tuesday in Dera Ismail Khan in the country’s ultra-conservative northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province that borders Afghanistan.

    Police said two students and a teacher ambushed Safoora Bibi at the main gate of the school and attacked her with a knife and stick.

    “She died after her throat was slit,” police official Saghir Ahmed told AFP.

    The main suspect is a colleague who planned the crime with two nieces studying at the Jamia Islamia Falahul Binaat school, police said.

    The girls told police a relative HAD DREAMT the dead woman “had committed blasphemy” against the Prophet Mohammed, officers said, adding they were also investigating if the main suspect, Umra Aman, had a personal grudge.

    Azeem Khan, another police official, confirmed the details.

    Known as madrassas, religious schools have long served as vital lifelines for millions of impoverished children in Pakistan, where social services are chronically underfunded.

    But critics say students can be brainwashed by hardline clerics who prize rote learning of the Koran over core subjects such as maths and science.

    Rights groups say Pakistan’s blasphemy laws are often wielded to settle personal vendettas.

    Last year, a Sri Lankan factory manager working in Pakistan was beaten to death and set ablaze by a mob after being accused of blasphemy.

    The Centre for Social Justice — an independent group advocating for the rights of minorities — says at least 84 people were accused of committing blasphemy last year, and three people were killed by lynch mobs over similar allegations.

  5. Chinese city orders all indoor pets belonging to COVID-19 patients in one neighborhood to be killed

    China, which has been pursuing a zero-COVID strategy, is seeing a new surge in cases.

    One city ordered the killing of all indoor pets of COVID-19 patients in one of its districts.

    State-run media reported that the order was later stopped. It’s not clear if any animals were killed.

    Note: I do not know the first two sources well, but I do know the Toronto Star and would not be surprised if the story were printed simply to normalize the idea that having pets is a privilege which the government may deny you at any point, for any reason. Then again, mass slaughter of dogs had occurred in China before, so…

    Either way, the idea is out there and being absorbed into the zeitgeist.

  6. Spanish supermarkets can legally ration consumer purchases of certain products under a new provision published Wednesday in the state’s official bulletin.

    The text, which provides legal cover, says the restrictions can be applied “exceptionally and when there are extraordinary circumstances or force majeure that justify it”.

    The move came as empty shelves appeared in many supermarkets due to the combined effect of a truck drivers’ strike and the Ukraine war.

    Most of the empty shelves have been due to an ongoing lorry drivers’ strike over soaring diesel prices, which began on March 14 and has curbed supplies of milk, flour, rice and other basic goods.

    Three weeks ago, Spanish supermarkets began rationing the sale of sunflower oil to stop customers from stockpiling over shortage fears due to Russia’s invasion of key supplier Ukraine.

  7. Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee have been fined by the Federal Election Commission for lying about the funding of the discredited “dossier.”

    The unverified and salacious anti-Trump dossier was used in a smear attempt against Donald Trump weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

    The FEC fined Clinton’s treasurer $8,000 and the DNC’s treasurer $105,000.

    “The election agency said that Clinton and the DNC violated strict rules on describing expenditures of payments funneled to the opposition research firm Fusion GPS through their law firm,” the Washington Examiner reported.

  8. WHO: Pfizer vaccine potentially linked to hearing loss

    ‘The most reported COVID-19 vaccines in these cases were Pfizer/BioNTech,’ the WHO newsletter stated

    The World Health Organization has published a report citing extremely rare instances of hearing loss and other auditory issues following injection of the COVID-19 vaccine.

    The health agency was notified that tinnitus, a hearing problem that causes ear ringing, may be associated with the vaccines.

    Gregory Poland, MD, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group in Rochester, Minnesota, says he developed tinnitus after receiving his second dose of the vaccine.

    In an interview with MedPage Today, he recounts nearly veering out of his lane driving back from the hospital after receiving his second dose.

    “It was like someone suddenly blew a dog whistle in my ear,” Poland told the medical journal. “It has been pretty much unrelenting.”

    Poland has been experiencing what he describes as life-altering tinnitus.

    He said of his own symptoms that he “can only begin to estimate the number of times I just want to scream because I can’t get rid of the noise or how many hours of sleep I’ve lost,” he said. The noise he hears is “particularly loud at night when there are no masking sounds.”

    As a vaccinologist, he still believes in the importance of getting jabbed despite his side-effect. Fearing the possibility of contracting COVID and spreading it to his patients, he opted to receive a booster.

    However individuals across the country and around the world have shared with him their experience post-vaccine, saying they too have developed tinnitus after COVID vaccination.

    “What has been heartbreaking about this, as a seasoned physician, are the emails I get from people that, this has affected their life so badly, they have told me they are going to take their own life,” Poland said.

    The WHO reported 367 cases of tinnitus and 164 cases of hearing loss among the 11 billion vaccines administered — with onset ranging from a few minutes to 19 days, but most commonly within a day of the jab.

    Dr. Christian Rausch and Dr. Qun-Ying Yue of the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, a Swedish nonprofit organization that collaborates with the WHO, identified the adverse side effect.

    “One case of tinnitus following the first dose decreased over a couple of days,” the doctors wrote in the WHO newsletter, “but hearing loss recurred after the second dose, and the patient was started on steroid treatment; no risk factors were recorded.

    “Another case described bilateral tinnitus more than a week after the first dose and worsening 1.5 weeks after the second dose. Receipt of unspecified medications were recorded, and the patient consulted an ear, nose and throat (ENT) physician. Another described hearing loss occurring which decreased within two days after the first dose, but re-occurring with the second dose, which required steroid treatment.”

    According to their findings, people who reported tinnitus ranged in ages from 19 to 93 and 63 per cent of the cases were women. The symptom was recorded in 27 countries including the United States, the United Kingdom and Italy. Additionally, more than a third of the cases reported came from those working in the health care industry.

    “The most reported COVID-19 vaccines in these cases were Pfizer/BioNTech,” the WHO bulletin stated, making up approximately 80 per cent of the cases.

    Researchers noted hearing loss is not included as an adverse reaction on the product labelling for COVID-19 vaccines and tinnitus is only listed for the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

    So far, research has been limited to a study published in February examining the potential association between COVID-19 vaccination and sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL).

    “It seems that hearing disorders have been reported for most of the COVID-19 vaccines, but with different IC025 values,” the report said. “More in-depth assessment of narratives has not been performed for the recently reported cases.”

    As research is limited, the WHO noted that precautions for the data and its interpretation will be taken into consideration.

    Medical experts concluded that this particular symptom, though uncommon, should still be monitored.

    “As the literature and ICSR data are still limited for this link, further monitoring is required,” the WHO newsletter stated.

  10. the gateway pundit – BOMBSHELL VIDEO: Economist at World Government Summit says new financial world order about to shift in dramatic new direction

    […]The World Government Summit is underway this week in Abu Dhabi and we’ve already got a bombshell to report.

    Dr. Pippa Malmgrem, a top American economist who served as a special adviser to former President George W. Bush, made a statement that confirms everything myself and others have been reporting for quite some time – that a cashless society is looming right around the corner.

    Listen to her comments in the video clip below

    Pippa Malmgren, Economist At The World Government Summit 2022

    She states her belief that the world financial system is about to switch accounting systems & digital money.

    Not decentralized cryptos, but centralized CBDCs (central bank digital currency)

    Malmgren stated:

    “We are on the brink of a dramatic change where we are about to, and I’ll say this boldly, we are about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting and introduce a new one. And the new one; the new accounting is what we call blockchain… It means digital, it means having an almost perfect record of every single transaction that happens in the economy, which will give us far greater clarity over what’s going on.”

    Who is Pippa Malmgren? She is a globalist and an elitist. Her father was an adviser to Richard Nixon and she has advised presidents and prime ministers around the world. One of her favorite topics over the last two years has been “The Upside of COVID,” if that provides any clues to her worldview.

    According to her website:

    Dr. Malmgren brings simple sensemaking to the complexities of the world economy, geopolitics and technology. She’s advised Presidents and Prime Ministers, co-founded an award-winning tech firm, worked in finance and asset management and served as a judge in The Queen’s Enterprise Awards competition and as a regulator of technology standards.

    She has lectured at Sandhurst, Duke Fuqua GEMBA, INSEAD, UT Austin and Tsinghua University in Beijing.

    This new money system Malmgren talks about with such enthusiasm will not only be digital, it will be centralized and it will be programmable. Do not confuse it with Bitcoin or other crypto currencies. The only thing it will share in common with other crypto is that it will be based on blockchain technology.

    So what do I mean by “programmable” money?

    This means the central banks will have complete control over your money and will be able to program it so that it can only be spent on certain things or in certain places. For example, have you purchased too many guns or too much ammunition over the past month? Maybe you indulged in too much frivolous travel and blew through too much gasoline? The government could easily have your money reprogrammed to limit future purchases of such taboo items. The possibilities are endless.

    What’s the bottom line? Once we get digital programmable money, where and how you will be “allowed” to spend your money will depend on your social credit score.

    This money will be linked to everyone’s personal digital identity. The digital ID marks the other pillar of the new digital economy that they haven’t really told you about yet. But if you read their documents at the World Economic Forum, you know it’s coming.

    As I’ve stated before, the entire Great Reset hinges on two things – the establishment of a global digital currency and a global digital identity for every man, woman and child.

    Pippa Malmgren is warning us. That system is at the door. And once it’s here, it marks the beginning of the end because nobody will be allowed to buy or sell without becoming a digitized, hybrid human being. I believe it will be possible for us to live outside this system for a while, but we need a plan, a network. We will need to live in community with like-minded refusniks.

    The vast majority of people will walk blindly into this digital trap being set by the power elites, only to regret it later. They will lose all autonomy over their bodies, having to submit to endless booster shots, as well as over their minds. Independent critical thinkers will be banned from the system. Traditionally minded Christians and Jews will be banned. Why? Because free thought is not allowed. They talk about diversity and inclusion but that is a euphemism for a society based on total information domination, where you must not only follow but celebrate whatever lie of the day is being promoted in the mainstream corporate media and on social media.

    Have you “done your part” to defeat the latest virus by getting vaccinated?

    Do you “stand with Ukraine”?

    Do you believe that it’s impossible to define what makes a woman a woman?

    Do you believe that Biden was legitimately elected and that elections are still “free and fair” in your country?

    These are just a few of the items on the litmus test of the New World Order.

    Get ready to resist and prepare yourself to live outside the system. One day you may even be faced with martyrdom for your faith.

    They’ve told us what they are going to do. Are you listening?

    They’ve told us that severe food shortages are coming.

    They’ve told us that they are working on a new digital currency (see Biden’s March 9 executive order).

    They’ve told us a major cyber attack is coming that will target our banking and financial system (providing the pretext for the new digital money system).

    What more do we need to know?

  15. New synagogue guidelines call for weapons, cellphones on Shabbat following deadly attacks

    The World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogues on Wednesday has called for synagogues to prepare for the possibility of an attack. Among its recommendations: Worshippers should arrive at services ARMED, and a CELLPHONE should be left on in the building during SHABBAT prayers.

    In guidelines issued Wednesday following a string of deadly attacks, the organizations called on the gabbais; or beadles, who assist in running the synagogue; community leaders; and worshippers to remain vigilant at prayer time and for gun owners to carry their weapons with them when arriving at the synagogue for prayer, INCLUDING ON SHABBAT.

    “The synagogue gabbai must ensure a first-aid kit is permanently stationed at the synagogue. Likewise, community heads must locate the professionals trained to provide first aid so that they are on alert and able to handle the provision of care to victims when necessary. They must ensure the synagogue has organized emergency exits and inform worshippers of the exit route and how to escape in an emergency,” the organization said.

    “These guidelines are the endeavors we are committed to in accordance with Halacha and together with prayers to our Father in Heaven. We call on synagogues to petition in prayers and supplications to the Holy One Blessed is He to say enough to our troubles….”
