  1. Imagine your doctor is not on your side, and does not have your best health interests at heart? Yes, he treats your sprained ankle, but asks for your subscription to his corporate requirements. Imagine the media you consume works for a government that pays it to maintain its own agenda, which is not to serve you, but to serve itself? Imagine the school your child goes to does not prioritize an education that prepares your child for life ahead, but rather the child’s indoctrination into the government’s ideological vision? Imagine the police force of your city that serves and protects the government’s priorities, but not yours? Yes, it comes when called, but place it under oath to explain its behavior during a public spectacle, and it tries to hide what it did. Imagine the coldest day of the year and you turn up the thermostat because your family is freezing, but you can’t get the house temperature above 67 degrees because the “smart meter” the city installed is controlled politics and not the Arctic high swooping in? Imagine your bank freezing your account because it doesn’t like you. Imagine trying to stand up to such power because you still believe in your right to personal autonomy?

  2. Project MK-Ultra trauma-based mind control. What does it have to do with Covid and the legacy media?

    Covid was mind control disguised as a virus, says MK-Ultra Project Monarch survivor.


    Cathy O’Brien is one of the most important truth tellers responsible for blowing the whistle on the CIA MK Ultra program and exposing the elite pedophile rings that have infiltrated the corridors of power at the highest levels around the world in recent decades.

    In 1995 O’Brien published the book Trance Formation of America which detailed her experiences within the government mind control program Project Monarch, which was part of the CIA’s notorious Project MK Ultra.

    For instance, mainstream America was shocked and appalled by the tiny slivers of detail the mainstream media let out about the Jeffrey Epstein case. But anyone who had educated themselves by reading Trance Formation of America would not have been surprised at all.

    O’Brien recently sat down with the Man in America program to share her insights into the COVID-19 psyop and discuss what is at stake for the future of humanity.

    In 2022, Cathy O’Brien’s voice has never been so important. Having lived through the Covid psyop, humanity has suffered at the hands of the globalist elite and they consider us ripe for the picking.

    Here’s a link where her book can be downloaded (for free):

    Cathy O’Brien’s second book is:
    ACCESS DENIED For Reasons Of National Security: Documented Journey From CIA Mind Control Slave To U.S. Government Whistleblower
    published in 2004

    (some quotes)

    ACCESS DENIED for Reasons of National Security details how Mark and Cathy survived to globally release pertinent facts on mind control and healing from it. This testament to the strength of the human spirit and power of love details the otherwise suppressed healing methods Mark taught Cathy to reclaim control over her own mind and life. Now people all over the world are applying this healing information to themselves and are reportedly healing from varying levels of trauma, abuse, PTSD, torture, and/or control.

  3. FEBRUARY 2022 – CBC – How anger, faith and conspiracy theories fuelled the trucker convoy

    Our investigation reveals how months of planning drew convoys to Canada’s capital, leading to an unprecedented weeks-long occupation of some streets around Parliament Hill.

    It spawned spinoff protests across the country and around the world.

    The protests were ostensibly about a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for truckers, but 90 per cent of Canadian truckers are vaccinated.

    The movement drew other actors with goals far beyond vaccine mandates and links to hate groups and white supremacists.

    Host Gillian Findlay talks to the early organizers of the Freedom Convoy, including Pat King.
    Organizers first attempted a protest like this back in 2019.

    We ask what they thought would happen and why police and politicians were both seemingly unaware and unable to maintain control.

  4. ctv news – Feds reveal plan to welcome 500,000 immigrants per year by 2025

    OTTAWA — The federal government is planning a massive increase in the number of immigrants entering Canada, with a goal of seeing 500,000 people arrive each year by 2025.

    Immigration Minister Sean Fraser revealed the new targets today, saying the move is necessary to ensure Canada’s economic prosperity.

    Canadian industries are facing a significant labour shortage, with about 1 million job vacancies across the country.

    The new plan puts an emphasis on increasing the number immigrants who will be admitted based on their work skills or experience over the next three years.

    Ottawa is planning a more moderate increase in the number of family members who will be admitted into the country, and a decrease in the number of refugees.

    The new plan comes days after Statistics Canada reported a record 23 per cent of people in the country are landed immigrants or permanent residents.

  5. the gateway pundit – Brazilian President Plans Presser Tonight – Will Announce Military Audit of Controversial Election, May Arrest Criminal Judges

    Brazilian protesters shut down the road to the airport in Sao Paulo following the controversial election on Sunday night.

    […]On Tuesday Matthew Tyrmand said Jair Bolsonaro will deliver remarks later tonight. According to Tyrmand, his contacts are telling him Bolsonaro may invoke the Constitution to demand the military hold an audit of the impossible results.

    Bolsonaro may also jail the radical leftist court justices who made it a crime for populist party to campaign effectively.

    Bolsonaro is not going quietly. He is fighting back.

    • the guardian -Brazil judge orders police to clear roadblocks by pro-Bolsonaro truckers

      Far-right president remains silent as supporters protest against his election defeat by Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva

      Brazilian police have begun breaking up hundreds of demonstrations by far-right supporters of Jair Bolsonaro, freeing up highways and roads that were blocked across the country in protest at the president’s defeat in a landmark general election.

      Bolsonaro lost a tightly fought ballot to Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva but has yet to concede defeat or make any statements about the loss or transition.

      His supporters, however, cried fraud despite zero evidence of any wrongdoing, and burned tyres and parked vehicles on motorways on Monday, leading to chaos.

      Brazil’s supreme court ruled early on Tuesday morning that the federal highway police (PRF) must “immediately take all measures” to clear “illicitly obstructed roads”.

      Owners of lorries being used as barricades would be fined 100,000 reais (£17,000) for every hour they remained part of the blockade, the court said. It also told the head of the corporation that he faced the same fine, and ultimately prison, if orders were not followed.

      Videos showed law enforcement officers removing demonstrators sitting in the middle of the highway by spraying them with pepper gas. In other locations police peacefully convinced protesters to go home.

      Before the supreme court ruling, some highway police had encouraged the demonstrators and told them they stood with them in their protests, videos and posts online showed.

      The PRF was criticised on Sunday for possible vote suppression by halting buses taking people to vote, particularly in the north-east, where support for Lula is strong.

      The PRF’s director-general tweeted his support for Bolsonaro ahead of the vote, adding fuel to the theory he wanted his officers to help the populist candidate.

      Officials had broken up 314 protests by Tuesday morning but roads were still closed in 21 states, according to official numbers.

      In São Paulo on Monday night, roads near the international airport, one of South America’s busiest, were backed up with traffic, leading some passengers to pull their luggage through the tailbacks on foot to try and catch their flights.

      More than two dozen flights were cancelled because pilots and crew could not get to the airport.

      Bolsonaro, meanwhile, was still awol, having failed to acknowledge the result or make any public comment or appearance since the polls closed on Sunday afternoon.

      News reports from the capital, Brasília, said he would meet supreme court judges on Tuesday and possibly address the nation later in the day.

      Some of his closest allies, however, acknowledged the game was up and reached out to the new president in an effort to affect an orderly transition.

      “The idea is for a republican relationship,” said Tarcísio de Freitas, the Bolsonaro candidate elected governor of São Paulo state, Brazil’s most populous and prosperous. “We are going to govern for the 46 million Paulistas and that presupposes a good understanding with the federal government.”

      Lula won Sunday’s runoff election with 50.9% of the vote, the slimmest margin of victory since Brazilians started voting again in 1989 after more than two decades of military dictatorship.

      The former union leader and two-time president between 2003 and 2011, Lula promised to govern for all Brazilians but will have his work cut out in what is now a sharply polarised nation.

      Bolsonaro is set to make an official statement on his election defeat later on Tuesday, his communications minister said, adding that the far-right leader will not contest the results.

    TGP first reported on the “Drop and Roll” after the 2020 Presidential Election. Now it looks like Brazil is a victim of this type of election theft as well.

    The election in Brazil is very similar to the 2020 Presidential Election in the US. Like President Trump in 2020, the conservative candidate Bolsonaro’s party picked up numerous lower house seats and governorships across the country. It was a conservative wave with the exception of the Presidential race.In both races, the conservatives were ahead and then the socialist candidate somehow pulled out the win.

  8. DAILY MAIL – Russia claims British Prime Minister texted Antony Blinken saying ‘it’s done’ shortly after the Nord Stream pipeline explosion

    Russia has accused Britain and the U.S. of conspiring to blow up the Nord Stream gas pipes

    Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov has not released any evidence to prove Liz Truss texted Blinken after the attack

    The claim comes after Kim Dotcom, who ran website Megaupload before he was convicted of fraud, began circulating the conspiracy

    Kim has not released evidence of the claim either

    He claims the information came from Truss’s iCloud after Russia hacked her phone while she was foreign secretary

    Russia’s claims appear inconsistent with what is known about Truss’s phone hack, which was first reported by the UK Mail on Sunday

    According to the paper, the hack was discovered ‘over the summer’ while Truss was still foreign secretary and in the running to replace Boris Johnson as PM

    Napolitano – Ukraine Russia War Phil Giraldi

    • Pentagon Confirms US Boots Are On The Ground In Ukraine

      Two bombshell reports by the Associated Press and Washington Post Monday and Tuesday have confirmed that the United States has boots on the ground in the Ukraine conflict. Crucially, these troops are performing tasks separate from mere embassy security.

      The American troops are said to be performing “inspections” of US weapon caches after last week the State Department and Pentagon unveiled a new plan to track US-supplied weapons in efforts to implement accountability for the billions of dollars worth of arms and ammunition transferred to Ukrainian forces since near the start of the war eight months ago.

      “A small number of U.S. military forces inside Ukraine have recently begun doing onsite inspections to ensure that Ukrainian troops are properly accounting for the Western-provided weapons they receive, a senior U.S. defense official told Pentagon reporters Monday,” the AP/WaPo reporting revealed.

      A Pentagon briefing confirmed this “small” contingency of troops has been advised to not do inspections “close” to the front lines of fighting:

      The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to provide a military update, would not say where the inspections are taking place or how close to the battlefronts the U.S. troops are getting. The official said U.S. personnel can’t do inspections “close to the front lines,” but said they are going where security conditions allow.

      There have already been “several inspections” overseen by U.S. Defense attache and a US Office of Defense Cooperation team based out of the Ukrainian capital. The report underscores that “U.S. President Joe Biden has ruled out any combat role for U.S. forces inside Ukraine.”

      However, what’s clear is that despite the White House’s ruling out of “combat” troops, this is the start of perhaps inevitable ‘mission creep’ – as has been seen in other conflict zones (such as Syria). If US troops are doing inspections of Ukrainian arms and ammo, and presumably Russia is currently targeting any and all Ukrainian military bases, this puts American troops and assets in Russia’s crosshairs, greatly increasing the possibility that the US and Russia could stumble into a direct shooting war.

      In a follow-up Tuesday report, The Washington Post detailed the following:

      U.S. monitors have conducted in-person inspections for only about 10 percent of the 22,000 U.S.-provided weapons sent to Ukraine that require special oversight.

      U.S. officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide details that have not been made public previously, said they are racing to deploy new means for tracking weapons seen as having a heightened risk of diversion, including Stinger surface-to-air missiles and Javelin antitank missiles, amid what they describe as Ukraine’s “super hot conflict.”

      National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson says the Ukrainians have been cooperating as willing partners in weapons accountability and implementing measures ensuring proper chain of custody. “While we recognize the unpredictability of combat, the United States and Ukraine have cooperated to prevent illicit weapons diversion since Russia’s further invasion began earlier this year,” she said.

      Like with Syria before, it’s likely the White House and Pentagon will carefully avoid acknowledging wording like “boots on the ground” in their press statements…

      The initiative is broadly being seen as part of Biden admin efforts to assuage Republican anger in Congress, after complaints have grown louder over the unaccountable “wild West” way in which Pentagon weapons have proliferated in Ukraine – as even CNN months ago underscored.

      This week Finland has been among the first European countries to document the spread of West-supplied weaponry outside of Ukraine’s borders and into the hands of criminal elements, as we detailed previously. “Weapons shipped [by various countries] to Ukraine have also been found in Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands,” Finland’s federal National Bureau of Investigation chief Christer Ahlgren was quoted by national broadcaster Yle as saying.

      Russia has already long warned it will attack foreign weapons shipments, transport convoys, and warehouses found in Ukraine… but how long before Russian forces target American military inspectors on the ground behind the front lines? The longer the grinding conflict drags on, the greater potential for such a disastrous scenario, whether intentional or not.

      * * *

      While at this point we could rightly call the Ukraine conflict a “proxy war” between Russia and US-NATO, all signs point to a steady slide into direct conflict. Now that Pentagon “inspectors” are confirmed on the ground in Ukraine (notably without any Congressional vote), expect the White House to vehemently deny that this marks any level of an escalation as far as Washington’s direct involvement… again, despite the evident danger of American soldiers placed in “harm’s way” – potentially being under Russian bombs.

  11. Feds concerned about armed people at Arizona ballot boxes

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Reports of people watching ballot boxes in Arizona, sometimes armed or wearing ballistic vests, raise serious concerns about voter intimidation, the Justice Department said Monday as it stepped into a lawsuit over the monitoring.

    The statement from the Justice Department comes days after a federal judge refused to bar a group from monitoring the outdoor drop boxes in the suburbs of Phoenix.

    Threats, intimidation and coercion are illegal under the federal Voting Rights Act, even if they doesn’t succeed, the government’s attorneys wrote. While lawful poll watching can support transparency, “ballot security forces” present a significant risk of voter intimidation, the court documents state.

    “While the First Amendment protects expressive conduct and peaceable assembly generally, it affords no protection for threats of harm directed at voters,” U.S. government attorneys wrote.

  14. Scandal-Ridden San Francisco FBI Field Office Involved in Pelosi Investigation
    Given the highly partisan nature of the FBI, and the San Francisco field office in particular, there is no reason to believe FBI brass will do anything more than run cover for the Pelosis.

    No one should accept at face value the strange account of what happened to Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), at their California home last week.

    Plenty of factors—a wholly dishonest news media, unsubstantiated claims the attacker was a foiled assassin who planned to kill the speaker of the House, and Mr. Pelosi’s recent legal troubles, to name a few—feed justified skepticism surrounding the alleged break-in and hammer attack that occurred in the wee hours of October 28. Details continue to change while leading Democrats including Hillary Clinton blame the incident, without evidence, on Republicans and Donald Trump.

    This situation is yet another example of how the public’s complete lack of faith in major institutions is fueling doubt and suspicion. Unfortunately, that level of distrust extends to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a once-revered agency that has blown its reputation in service to the Democratic Party. And news that the San Francisco FBI field office is taking a lead role in the Pelosi investigation offers little comfort that the American people will ever find out the truth of the matter

  15. This Winter Will Be Bad For Energy Prices. Now The Real Concern Is Next Winter.
    By Ben Zeisloft

    Oil executives warned that next winter could see a tighter energy supply and even higher prices than this winter.

    Although a major shortage has been avoided in Europe as geopolitical pressures from the Russian invasion of Ukraine threaten energy supplies, oil and gas magnates said at a conference in the United Arab Emirates that next winter is now the primary cause for concern

    We’ve got a difficult winter ahead, and subsequent to that we’ve got a more difficult winter in the year ahead of that, because the production that is available to Europe in the first half of 2023 is considerably less than the production we had available to us in the first half of 2022,” Vitol CEO Russell Hardy told CNBC. “So the consequences of energy shortage and therefore price escalation, all of the things that have been discussed here about the cost of living, the expectation of problems ahead, clearly need to be thought about in that context.”

    The French Government has demanded that Rumble (@rumblevideo) block Russian news sources.

    Like @elonmusk, I won’t move our goal posts for any foreign government.

    Rumble will turn off France entirely (France isn’t material to us) and we will challenge the legality of this demand.

    Rumble says it won’t move its policy goalposts to appease France’s censorship demands

    Rumble has exited France while it looks to challenge the legality of its censorship orders.

    Growing video platform Rumble, based in the US, has refused to cave to France’s demands to censor Russian news sources such as RT France and Sputnik.

    Rumble has instead chosen to pull its services from France rather than comply with the order.

    “The French Government has demanded that Rumble @rumblevideo block Russian news sources. Like @elonmusk, I won’t move our goal posts for any foreign government,” Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski tweeted.

    In a statement, Rumble said, “the French Government demanded that we remove certain Russian news sources from Rumble.”

    Rumble outlined its commitment to free speech, adding, “As part of our mission to restore a free and open internet, we have committed not to move the goalposts on our content policies. Users with unpopular views are free to access our platform on the same terms as our millions of other users.”

    Rumble said that it was disabling access to users in France while they look into challenging the legality of the government’s demands.

    Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who has a show on Rumble, weighed in on the decision. “If Rumble obeyed France’s censorship order – like Big Tech firms often do – it’d mean Americans could only access voices and views which foreign governments (EU, China, Iran, etc.) permitted to be aired.”

    Several months ago, the European Union (EU) imposed sanctions on Russia, including banning RT and Sputnik from being broadcast in member countries. The two news outlets were accused of spreading Russian propaganda about the invasion of Ukraine.

    The channels are not allowed on television or online in EU countries. However, they have been circumventing the sanctions through online platforms that are not based in the EU.

    Last month, France’s President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged the difficulties in blocking RT and Sputnik from the country, as French citizens still had online ways to access the content.

    “We’re using the informational weapon and Russia was doing it even before by spreading propaganda on social networks, through propaganda channels that we have cut off on our soil but still continue to find channels to broadcast,” Macron said in an interview broadcast by France 2.

    Rumble describes itself as a high-growth neutral video platform with independent infrastructure that is “immune to cancel culture” – and a platform with a mission of restoring the internet to its roots.

    Remaining investors forced to decide whether to accept Moscow’s new terms

    The Japanese government has decided to remain involved in the formerly Exxon-led Sakhalin-1 oil and gas project in Russia, Nikkei has learned, as it seeks a stable supply of energy despite international sanctions on Moscow.

    ExxonMobil, which held a 30% stake in Sakhalin-1, announced in March that it would withdraw from the project.

    Russia has set up a new company to take over the project under a presidential decree that has in effect forced investors to choose sides…

    The Group of Seven nations decided in May to ban imports of Russian crude oil. Although the G-7 did not decide on a time frame, saying only that the ban will be enforced in a “timely and orderly fashion,” Japan’s continued participation in Sakhalin-1 would go against the consensus among fellow G-7 members.

    As Japan relies on the Middle East for 95% of its crude imports, it sees ownership in Russian projects as essential to ensuring a stable supply of energy…

    Japan will not be able to survive without Russia oil

    “It is likely that the canister is associated with the AS-24 KILLJOY air-launched ballistic missile, a large-sized ammunition for the transportation of which the MiG-31K variant is adapted,” the British intelligence report says.

    Given the range of this missile in 2000 km, the deployment of “Daggers” in Belarus gives Russia a small additional advantage in terms of hitting additional targets on the territory of Ukraine, according to British intelligence.
    Probably, the placement of missiles is made for two purposes:

    1. Give a signal to the West;
    2. To present Belarus as more and more involved in the war.

  21. CHISINAU, November 1 – RIA Novosti. The US and the EU have increased military aid to Moldova without violating its neutrality, US Ambassador to Chisinau Kent Logsdon said.

    “The United States, the EU and other partners, we have all increased assistance to Moldova, especially in the military sphere. We think, we analyze what it means to maintain your constitutional neutrality in the most appropriate way. There are many gaps and problems, because no one has looked at the military aspects, we we will work with you in this area…”

    “We have no signs that there are plans for a Russian military attack on the territory of Moldova, and this is good,” the ambassador stressed…

    According to the constitution of Moldova, the republic has a neutral status, but since 1994 the country has been cooperating with NATO within the framework of an individual partnership plan. The information center of the alliance operates in the capital of Moldova.

    In December 2017, a NATO liaison office was opened in Chisinau. Public opinion polls show that more than 60% of the republic’s population is against joining NATO.
    Who wants to pay for the sacred borders of Moldova? Territory that’s swung back and forth forever? Blood and death.

    Transnistria – A place I know too well from family friends from the Bukovina. Also stomping grounds of another neighbor, the late Elie Wiesel. Ghastly.
