  1. Very interesting conversation between Bret Weinstein and Robert Malone. Infectious vaccines is a term used I have not heard and a concept I don’t yet understand beyond the possible shedding aspect:

    • Bill Gates is suppose to be working on them to get everyone vaccinated, this begs the question are the Gates vaccines really sterilizing people?

      • Canadians were constantly told the vaccines are safe and effective. REALLY

        Six months in and they have already reached their 400,000-person limit of claimants.

        Tax payers, who paid for the vaccines, will now foot the bill, NOT Big Pharma.

        • There is some goodness in the hearts of the government monsters who pushed this poison, if you die after getting the vaccines, they will pay for your funeral. I wonder if they will insist that the person who died needs to prove what they died from.

    • EU COVID Certificate: MEPs approve one-year extension

      The European Parliament plenary has endorsed the deal with member states to extend the legal framework of the EU Digital COVID Certificate for another 12 months.

      On Thursday, MEPs backed the agreement reached on 13 June, which aims to prevent restrictions to EU free movement in the event of new variants or other pandemic-related threats, with 453 votes in favour, 119 against, and 19 abstaining (union citizens), and 454 in favour, 112 against, and 20 abstentions (third-country nationals). The current rules, which were due to expire next week, will be valid until 30 June 2023.

      In response to Parliament’s request, the text states that member states should not restrict the free movement of EUDCC holders in a way that is disproportionate or discriminatory. The European Commission will assess the impact of the EUDCC on free movement and fundamental rights by the end of 2022, and can propose its repeal, if the public health situation allows, based on the latest scientific advice from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the Health Security Committee.

      Quote

      After the vote, the rapporteur Juan Fernando López Aguilar (S&D, ES) said: “Due to the unpredictable evolution of the virus, the Parliament has extended the application of the EUDCC for a year to ensure citizens have the right to free movement within the EU. We hope this is the last extension and we have tasked the Commission to assess by 31 December 2022 whether the EUDCC could be repealed as soon as the epidemiological situation allows.”

      Next steps

      The extension still needs to be formally adopted by the Council of the EU. It will then enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the EU.

    • reuters – U.S. to send $450 million in security aid to Ukraine in latest package

      WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) – The United States will provide an additional $450 million in security assistance to Ukraine, including more long-range rocket systems, U.S. officials said on Thursday.

      Moscow’s forces are advancing in Ukraine’s east in a bid to capture the industrial heartland known as the Donbas, where Ukraine fears some of its troops could be encircled in a Russian pincer move.

      In a statement, the Pentagon said the package would be valued at up to $450 million and include four additional High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), 18 coastal and riverine patrol boats and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

      Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, President Joe Biden’s administration has provided $6.1 billion in security assistance to Ukraine.

      John Kirby, National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications, said Washington was closely working with Kiev to identify which types of weapons could best fulfill their needs in each package.

      “The reason we do it like this is so we can keep it relevant to what’s happening on the battlefield,” Kirby told reporters at a White House briefing.

      Earlier on Thursday, Ukraine said it had received the first tranche of HIMARS, a powerful long-range weapon system that Kyiv hopes can help turn the tide in the months-long battle.

      The latest package comes after Biden last week announced an infusion of $1 billion in weapons for Ukraine that includes anti-ship rocket systems, artillery rockets, howitzers and ammunition.

      The war has entered a brutal attritional phase in recent weeks, with Russian forces concentrating overwhelming artillery firepower on the Donbas, which Moscow claims on behalf of separatists.

      Ukraine says it needs the HIMARS systems to better match the range of Russian rocket systems that it says are being extensively used to pummel Ukrainian positions in Donbas.

      Washington has said it has received assurances from Kyiv that those longer-range weapons would not be used to attack Russian territory, fearing an escalation of the conflict.

      U.S. officials have said that while HIMARS are important for Ukrainian forces, no single weapon system alone can change the war.

      Moscow has warned it will strike targets in Ukraine which they “have not yet been hitting” if the West supplies longer-range missiles to Ukraine for use in high-precision mobile rocket systems.

      yahoo – US congressmen introduce bill to train Ukrainian fighter pilots on F-15, F-16 fighter jets

      “This bill would allow the United States to begin training Ukrainian pilots and air crew members on F-15’s, F-16’s, and other air platforms while the Administration continues to consider sending such equipment,” reads a report posted on Kizinger’s official website on June 17.

      According to the congressmen, neither the Ukrainians nor the Russians have established air superiority thus far, the United States can help Ukraine change the situation in the air domain, giving Ukrainian forces a decisive advantage in the war

      “The Ukrainian military needs our immediate assistance, especially with air assets,” said Kinzinger.

      It is noted this program will strengthen the Ukrainian military and ensure their long-term stability and security.

      The officials said they remain hopeful that there won’t be a need for further escalation, but they both agree that it’s critical for the Ukrainian military to be trained and familiar with these air platforms should Russia continue its malign campaign against Ukraine’s sovereignty.

  5. “It’s Not A Turndown…It’s A Takedown” – Austin Fitts

    Via Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com,

    Catherine Austin Fitts (CAF), Publisher of The Solari Report and former Assistant Secretary of Housing (Bush 41 Admin.), contends this is what the so-called “reset” looks like.<

    High food and fuel prices along with crushing interest rates are no accident. CAF explains, “To me, this is part of the ‘going direct reset.’ …”

    “There is an official narrative, and the official narrative is they’ve got to stop inflation… Let’s look very simply at what happened. They voted on the direct reset. Then they injected $5 trillion into the economy that went to the insiders. Then they used Covid to shut down the economy run by the outsiders. Now, the outsiders want to open another business, and they are going to radically raise the cost of capital to the outsiders. What’s going to happen is that $5 trillion is going to buy more assets more cheaply. To me, this is part of centralizing the control of the economy. They are asserting very significant central control. This is not a turndown–this is a takedown.”

    […]CAF says, “At some point, you have to realize we are in a war…”

    “We have an enemy. We have the power to win, but we are going to have to fight. If you look at our ancestors in the last 10,000 years, I dare say we have it in us. Let’s get out of fear and get into fighting mode. There are two roads. We can preserve, rebuild and protect the human civilization, or we can become slaves. If you look at what these guys are up to, death is not the worst thing that can happen to you. Do not fear death. Fear slavery in a transhuman society.”

  6. BREAKING: Trump Def. Sec. Called Italian Attaché Over ‘Patently Absurd’ Satellite Conspiracy Theory

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) spoke about a conspiracy theory that Italian satellites were being used to switch votes at a January 6th Select Committee hearing that focused on former President Trump’s efforts to pressure the Justice Department to assist in overturning the results of the 2020 election.

    • JAN 08 2021 – USA TODAY – Fact check: Claims of electoral fraud in Rome, dubbed ‘ItalyGate,’ are baseless

      The claim: Votes were switched from Trump to Biden at the U.S. Embassy in Rome

      At 3:41 a.m. on Jan. 7, Vice President Mike Pence confirmed that President-elect Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump — an act that marked the formal end of the presidential race, per USA TODAY.

      Nonetheless, some internet users have continued to levy baseless claims about electoral fraud. This week, there were multiple videos posted to Facebook that alleged the vote count was changed in Rome.

      Pages like Conversation Controversy and Trump Train News Media shared a 52-minute video in which Maria Strollo Zack explains the theory, dubbed “ItalyGate.”

      “The theft of the election was orchestrated in the Rome Embassy, on the second floor of Via Veneto, by an employee, Stefano Serafini, foreign service officer of over 20 years,” she said. “Stefano Serafini coordinated with a General Claudio Graziano.”

      “General Graziano is on the board of Leonardo — the defense contractor, Leonardo SPA,” Strollo Zack continued. “Leonardo used their military satellite uplink to load the software and transfer it over to change the votes from Trump to Biden.”

      She also alleged that recent arrests of employees at Leonardo were related to the incident, and that the plan was orchestrated by former President Barack Obama, with help from former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and the CIA.

      Strollo Zack — a former lobbyist and current chair of Nations in Action, an organization established in 2017 and dedicated to advocating for families, according to its website — also made an appeal for funds to help her gather more evidence.

      Conversation Controversy also shared a 13-minute video in which retired CIA station chief Bradley Johnson shares a similar version of the theory, connected to another debunked theory about election servers in Frankfurt, Germany.

      “The U.S. elections were changed, the results were changed in those five or six key states, then all of those voting machines were hooked up to the internet,” he said. “The internet then was used to download that information to these famous servers in Germany.”

      “So from there, those were uploaded and sent to Rome, and this is where this took place,” he continued. “Once they created all the new data and manipulated all the data that was there, they sent these new numbers back up through this military satellite (…) and back down to all the machines here in the United States in those five or six states.”

      Johnson also claimed the time it took to upload the data to servers in Germany and Italy, manipulate it in Italy, and send it back to the U.S. was the source of the “sudden” uptick in votes for Biden in some states.

      “ItalyGate” has quickly spread to around the internet. The three videos have amassed a combined 100,000 views and 7,000 shares on Facebook. An interview of Strollo Zack on America Can We Talk? on YouTube has also garnered over 400,000 views.

      Conversation Controversy, Strollo Zack, American Can We Talk? have not responded to requests from USA TODAY for comment.

      Trump Train News Media told USA TODAY that they are not responsible for the content, since it was sent to the page to share.

      Johnson told USA TODAY that “it’s clear from Italian newspapers this is going on,” though he provided no proof.

      No evidence of switched votes or electoral fraud, per multiple officials

      The claims in both videos on “ItalyGate” are baseless. They are also easily contradicted by statements from multiple federal officials who have found no proof of electoral fraud.

      On Nov. 12, a national coalition of election security officials announced that “there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,” per USA TODAY.

      “All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary,” they wrote. “This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors.”

      The coalition — which included the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Association of State Election Directors — also deemed the election “the most secure in American history.”

      On Dec. 1, then-Attorney General William Barr also told the Associated Press that the U.S. Justice Department had uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

      An apparent uptick in votes for Biden in some states also wasn’t proof of malfeasance.

      USA TODAY, Reuters, PolitiFact and the Associated Press have debunked these claims. Most “spikes” were caused by late-counted absentee ballots, which tended to skew Democratic, or left-leaning counties that released results in large batches.

      Aspects of ItalyGate easily disproven, details inaccurate

      Some aspects of the claims in the videos are also easily disproven.

      For example, the theory relies on the notion that votes were changed via satellite, software or the internet. But hand recounts of paper ballots have confirmed election results in at least one contested state and locality.

      In Georgia, officials performed a weeklong statewide audit of paper ballots that affirmed a narrow victory for Biden, per USA TODAY. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said the audit “reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results.”

      A hand tally of every vote cast for president in Antrim County, Michigan, also confirmed that its machine-tabulated results were correct, per the Detroit Free Press. Out of 15,962 votes cast, the hand recount showed a net gain of 12 votes for Trump, who won the county but lost the state.

      Multiple details in the videos are also inaccurate.

      Gen. Claudio Graziano is not listed as a member of the board of directors at Leonardo, per its website. Graziano serves as the chairman of the European Union Military Committee, per a website run by the European Union.

      Leonardo and Graziano have not responded to requests from USA TODAY for comment.

      Employees of Leonardo were arrested on Dec. 5, but they were arrested for their alleged role in hacking the company’s computers to steal sensitive information between 2015 and 2017, per Reuters.

      And there was no raid of election servers in Germany. USA TODAY has previously debunked that theory, since the U.S. Army denied preforming such a raid, and the company whose purported servers were seized didn’t even have servers in Germany.

      Proponents of “ItalyGate” have also claimed that the news media in Italy has covered the scandal. However, the Italian news feeds of the the Associated Press, Reuters, and Sky News and contained no references to any of the claims, per Lead Stories.

      Our rating: False

      Based on our research, the claim that votes were switched from Trump to Biden at the U.S. Embassy in Rome is FALSE. There was no evidence of switched votes or electoral fraud in the presidential election, per multiple officials. “ItalyGate” relies on the notion that votes were changed via satellite, software, or the internet. But hand recounts of paper ballots have confirmed election results in at least one contested state and locality. And other details of the theory are inaccurate and easily
      debunked.
