  1. USA Watchdog 1 hr.

    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts calls everyone stupid while Bill Holter opens the door to malicious intent with regards to all that is going on. Roberts wonders why Putin holds back Russian troops thereby dragging out the war. Holter says communists want to crash the system so that suffering masses will agree to the tyranny of CBDC’s. Perhaps Uncle Vlad is just ruthless, patient and complicit enough to have accepted a ticket to this epic play.

    Hmm. There’s so much going on it’s hard to know what to focus on. So much is important. Nationalizing the American banking system seems to be a fairly big deal, the financing of which sounds pretty inflationary. How many trillions of dollars will be printed for this? But, then, it was Lenin who said, “…The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency.”

    The Russian Ruble is backstopped by natural resources and tons of gold. Right now the USD is backed by Biden. Which would you put your “money” on? Incidentally, in what endgame savings vehicle do the world communists plan to hold all of their ill-gotten gains as they destroy the fiat system? There must be something without counterparty risk they will leave intact…

    There is, however, one other precious resource that remains largely suppressed by our clever enemies because it is the one they fear the most: integrity.

    Confucius said the strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home. Albert Camus said integrity has no need of rules. Someone else said integrity is doing what you say you’re going to do.

    It is a matter of fact that one may have to sacrifice one’s own dignity and integrity to survive in hard times. It is also a lesson of history that thousands, or millions of people will embody their survival in a man, or men of integrity when the mother of invention summons this need.

    No where is the brutality of the human animal better expressed than in its invention of political collectivism, while no where is its sublime beauty better expressed than when it sublimates the individual.

    • NYT – New Data Links Pandemic’s Origins to Raccoon Dogs at Wuhan Market

      Genetic samples from the market were recently uploaded to an international database and then removed after scientists asked China about them.

      An international team of virus experts said on Thursday that they had found genetic data from a market in Wuhan, China, linking the coronavirus with raccoon dogs for sale there, adding evidence to the case that the worst pandemic in a century could have been ignited by an infected animal that was being dealt through the illegal wildlife trade.

      The genetic data was drawn from swabs taken from in and around the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market starting in January 2020, shortly after the Chinese authorities had shut down the market because of suspicions that it was linked to the outbreak of a new virus. By then, the animals had been cleared out, but researchers swabbed walls, floors, metal cages and carts often used for transporting animal cages.

      In samples that came back positive for the coronavirus, the international research team found genetic material belonging to animals, including large amounts that were a match for the raccoon dog, three scientists involved in the analysis said.

      The jumbling together of genetic material from the virus and the animal does not prove that a raccoon dog itself was infected. And even if a raccoon dog had been infected, it would not be clear that the animal had spread the virus to people. Another animal could have passed the virus to people, or someone infected with the virus could have spread the virus to a raccoon dog.

      But the analysis did establish that raccoon dogs — fluffy animals that are related to foxes and are known to be able to transmit the coronavirus — deposited genetic signatures in the same place where genetic material from the virus was left, the three scientists said. That evidence, they said, was consistent with a scenario in which the virus had spilled into humans from a wild animal.

      A report with the full details of the international research team’s findings has not yet been published. Their analysis was first reported by The Atlantic.

      The new evidence is sure to provide a jolt to the debate over the pandemic’s origins, even if it does not resolve the question of how it began.

      In recent weeks, the so-called lab leak theory, which posits that the coronavirus emerged from a research lab in Wuhan, has gained traction thanks to a new intelligence assessment from the U.S. Department of Energy and hearings led by the new Republican House leadership.

      But the genetic data from the market offers some of the most tangible evidence yet of how the virus could have spilled into people from wild animals outside a lab. It also suggests that Chinese scientists have given an incomplete account of evidence that could fill in details about how the virus was spreading at the Huanan market.

      Jeremy Kamil, a virologist at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Shreveport who was not involved in the study, said the findings showed that “the samples from the market that had early Covid lineages in them were contaminated with DNA reads of wild animals.”

      Dr. Kamil said that fell short of conclusive evidence that an infected animal had set off the pandemic. But, he said, “it really puts the spotlight on the illegal animal trade in an intimate way.”

      Chinese scientists had released a study looking at the same market samples in February 2022. That study had reported that samples were positive for the coronavirus but suggested that the virus had come from infected people who were shopping or working in the market, rather than from animals being sold there.

      At some point, those same researchers, including some affiliated with the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, posted the raw data from swabs around the market to GISAID, an international repository of genetic sequences of viruses. (Attempts to reach the Chinese scientists by phone on Thursday were not successful.)

      On March 4, Florence Débarre, an evolutionary biologist at the French National Center for Scientific Research, happened to be searching that database for information related to the Huanan market when, she said in an interview, she noticed more sequences than usual popping up. Confused at first about whether they contained new data, Dr. Débarre put them aside, only to log in again last week and discover that they held a trove of raw data.

      Virus experts had been awaiting that raw sequence data from the market since they learned of its existence in the Chinese report from February 2022. Dr. Débarre said she had alerted other scientists, including the leaders of a team that had published a set of studies last year pointing to the market as the origin.

      An international team — which included Michael Worobey, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Arizona; Kristian Andersen, a virologist at the Scripps Research Institute in California; and Edward Holmes, a biologist at the University of Sydney — started mining the new genetic data last week.

      One sample in particular caught their attention. It had been taken from a cart linked to a specific stall at the Huanan market that Dr. Holmes had visited in 2014, scientists involved in the analysis said.

      That stall, Dr. Holmes found, contained caged raccoon dogs on top of a separate cage holding birds, exactly the sort of environment conducive to the transmission of new viruses.

      The swab taken from a cart there in early 2020, the research team found, contained genetic material from the virus and a raccoon dog.

      “We were able to figure out relatively quickly that at least in one of these samples, there was a lot of raccoon dog nucleic acid, along with virus nucleic acid,” said Stephen Goldstein, a virologist at the University of Utah who worked on the new analysis. (Nucleic acids are the chemical building blocks that carry genetic information.)

      After the international team stumbled upon the new data, they reached out to the Chinese researchers who had uploaded the files with an offer to collaborate, hewing to rules of the online repository, scientists involved with the new analysis said. After that, the sequences disappeared from GISAID.

      It is not clear who removed them or why they were taken down.

      Dr. Débarre said the research team was seeking more data, including some from market samples that were never made public. “What’s important is there’s still more data,” she said.

      Scientists involved with the analysis said that some of the samples had also contained genetic material from other animals and from humans. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, who worked on the analysis, said that the human genetic material was to be expected given that people were shopping and working there and that human Covid cases had been linked to the market.

      Dr. Goldstein, too, cautioned that “we don’t have an infected animal, and we can’t prove definitively there was an infected animal at that stall.” Genetic material from the virus is stable enough, he said, that it is not clear when exactly it was deposited at the market. He said that the team was still analyzing the data and that it had not intended for its analysis to become public before it had released a report.

      “But,” he said, “given that the animals that were present in the market were not sampled at the time, this is as good as we can hope to get.”

      the guardian – New data links Covid-19’s origins to raccoon dogs at Wuhan market

      Analysis of gene sequences by international team finds Covid-positive samples rich in raccoon dog DNA

      Newly released genetic data gathered from a live food market in Wuhan has linked Covid-19 with raccoon dogs, adding weight to the theory that infected animals sold at the site started the coronavirus pandemic, researchers involved in the work say.

      Swabs collected from stalls at the Huanan seafood market in the two months after it was shut down on 1 January 2020 were previously found to contain both Covid and human DNA. When the findings were published last year, Chinese researchers stated that the samples contained no animal DNA.

      That conclusion has now been overturned by an international team of scientists. Their analysis of gene sequences posted by the Chinese team to the scientific database Gisaid found that some of the Covid-positive samples were rich in DNA from raccoon dogs. Traces of DNA belonging to other mammals, including civets, were also present in Covid-positive samples.

      The discovery does not prove that raccoon dogs or other animals infected with Covid triggered the pandemic, but scientists presenting the work to an expert group at the World Health Organization on Tuesday believe it makes that more likely.

      “The data does point even further to a market origin,” Prof Kristian Andersen, an evolutionary biologist at Scripps Research in La Jolla, California, told Science magazine. Andersen attended a meeting of the WHO’s scientific advisory group for the origins of novel pathogens and is working on the data.

      The recently uploaded gene sequences were spotted by Florence Débarre, an evolutionary biologist at the French National Centre for Scientific Research. She alerted Andersen and Prof Michael Worobey, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Arizona, who have both written papers providing evidence of a market origin for the pandemic.

      What started the worst pandemic in a century has become the focus of intense – and often toxic – debate. One theory proposes that the virus emerged in wild animals and spread to humans through contamination at the market. Another suspects it escaped from the nearby Wuhan Institute of Virology, where researchers work on similar pathogens.

      The lab leak theory has gained headlines in recent weeks after an intelligence assessment from the US energy department and Republican-led hearings into the origins of the pandemic. Concrete evidence is lacking for either theory and may never be found.

      The latest genetic data does not prove raccoon dogs or other mammals were infected with Covid and spread it at the market. If the animals were infected, they may have contracted the virus from infected humans. But the findings do point to the possibility that the cause was an infected animal and, ultimately, the illegal wildlife trade.

      While scientists expect the debate to rumble on, there are questions over why the Chinese team did not release the genetic data earlier. One member of the team, George Gao, the former head of China’s Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, told Science there was “nothing new” in the sequences. Why the data was later pulled from the Gisaid site is also not clear.

      Débarre said she was working on a report of the findings, which will be made public, and would answer questions only once that was done.

      Dr Jonathan Stoye, a virologist and senior group leader at the Francis Crick Institute in London, said: “The finding of Sars-CoV-2 infected racoon dogs strengthens the plausibility that coronavirus-infected farmed animals were an important link in the series of events leading to the Covid-19 pandemic.

      “However, it does not disprove lab-leak theories: that would require the demonstration that such animals were infected prior to their arrival and display at the Huanan seafood market, something that may never be possible.”

      Also on Friday, the WHO said the Covid-19 pandemic could settle down this year, posing a risk similar to that of flu.

      “I think we’re coming to that point where we can look at Covid-19 in the same way we look at seasonal influenza: a threat to health, a virus that will continue to kill, but a virus that is not disrupting our society,” Michael Ryan, the WHO emergencies director, said, adding: “I believe that that will come … this year.”


      THE ATLANTIC – The Strongest Evidence Yet That an Animal Started the Pandemic

      A new analysis of genetic samples from China appears to link the pandemic’s origin to raccoon dogs.

      For three years now, the debate over the origins of the coronavirus pandemic has ping-ponged between two big ideas: that SARS-CoV-2 spilled into human populations directly from a wild-animal source, and that the pathogen leaked from a lab. Through a swirl of data obfuscation by Chinese authorities and politicalization within the United States, and rampant speculation from all corners of the world, many scientists have stood by the notion that this outbreak—like most others—had purely natural roots.

      But that hypothesis has been missing a key piece of proof: genetic evidence from the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, China, showing that the virus had infected creatures for sale there.

      Now, an international team of virologists, genomicists, and evolutionary biologists may have finally found crucial data to help fill that knowledge gap. A new analysis of genetic sequences collected from the market shows that raccoon dogs being illegally sold at the venue could have been carrying and possibly shedding the virus at the end of 2019.

      It’s some of the strongest support yet, experts told me, that the pandemic began when SARS-CoV-2 hopped from animals into humans, rather than in an accident among scientists experimenting with viruses.

      “This really strengthens the case for a natural origin,” says Seema Lakdawala, a virologist at Emory University who wasn’t involved in the research. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist involved in the research, told me, “This is a really strong indication that animals at the market were infected. There’s really no other explanation that makes any sense.”

  4. Associated Press –400,000 gallons of radioactive water leaked from a nuclear plant in Minnesota

    ST.. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota regulators said Thursday they’re monitoring the cleanup of a leak of 400,000 gallons of radioactive water from Xcel Energy’s Monticello nuclear power plant, and the company said there’s no danger to the public.

    “Xcel Energy took swift action to contain the leak to the plant site, which poses no health and safety risk to the local community or the environment,” the Minneapolis-based utility said in a statement.

    While Xcel reported the leak of water containing tritium to state and federal authorities in late November, the spill had not been made public before Thursday. State officials said they waited to get more information before going public with it.

    “We knew there was a presence of tritium in one monitoring well, however Xcel had not yet identified the source of the leak and its location,” Minnesota Pollution Control Agency spokesman Michael Rafferty said.

    “Now that we have all the information about where the leak occurred, how much was released into groundwater, and that contaminated groundwater had moved beyond the original location, we are sharing this information,” he said, adding the water remains contained on Xcel’s property and poses no immediate public health risk.

    The company said it notified the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the state on Nov. 22, the day after it confirmed the leak, which came from a pipe between two buildings. Since then, it has been pumping groundwater, storing and processing the contaminated water, which contains tritium levels below federal thresholds.

    “Ongoing monitoring from over two dozen on-site monitoring wells confirms that the leaked water is fully contained on-site and has not been detected beyond the facility or in any local drinking water,” the Xcel Energy statement said.

    When asked why Xcel Energy didn’t notify the public earlier, the company said: “We understand the importance of quickly informing the communities we serve if a situation poses an immediate threat to health and safety. In this case, there was no such threat.” The company said it focused on investigating the situation, containing the affected water and figuring out next steps.

    The Monticello plant is about 35 miles (55 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis, upstream from the city on the Mississippi River.

    Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen that occurs naturally in the environment and is a common by-product of nuclear plant operations. It emits a weak form of beta radiation that does not travel very far and cannot penetrate human skin, according to the NRC. A person who drank water from a spill would get only a low dose, the NRC says.

    The NRC says tritium spills happen from time to time at nuclear plants, but that it has repeatedly determined that they’ve either remained limited to the plant property or involved such low offsite levels that they didn’t affect public health or safety. Xcel reported a small tritium leak at Monticello in 2009.

    Xcel said it has recovered about 25% of the spilled tritium so far, that recovery efforts will continue and that it will install a permanent solution this spring.

    “While this leak does not pose a risk to the public or the environment, we take this very seriously and are working to safely address the situation,” Chris Clark, president of Xcel Energy–Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, said in the statement. “We continue to gather and treat all potentially affected water while regularly monitoring nearby groundwater sources.”

    Xcel Energy is considering building above-ground storage tanks to store the contaminated water it recovers, and is considering options for the treatment, reuse, or final disposal of the collected tritium and water. State regulators will review the options the company selects, the MPCA said.

    Japan is preparing to release a massive amount of treated radioactive wastewater into the sea from the the triple reactor meltdowns 12 years ago at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The water contains tritium and other radioactive contaminants.

  5. DAILY MAIL – Transgender Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine says changing kids’ genders has the ‘highest support’ of the Biden administration and is key to the mental health of minors

    Transgender Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine says that gender-affirming care for minors has the ‘highest support’ of the Biden administration

    Levine promised medically changing children’s gender would be normalized -praising the controversial medical intervention banned in several states

    Levine was invited to speak at the event about the Florida Parental Rights in Education law and the political implications of gender reassignment surgery

    FOX News – Dr. Rachel Levine says changing kids’ genders will soon be fully embraced: ‘Wheels will turn on this’

    Levine also said gender-affirming care for minors had the ‘highest support’ of the Biden administration

    Levine praised the “gender-affirming care” at the Pediatric Grand Rounds session at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford. Levine was invited to speak at the event about the Florida Parental Rights in Education law and the political implications of gender reassignment surgery taking place at children’s hospitals.

    […]Rep. Andy Harris, a member of the House Doctors Caucus and Co-Chair of the Pro-Life Caucus, said that it’s “reprehensible for a government official—let alone the Assistant U.S. Secretary of HHS to promote the genital mutilation of minors as becoming a standard practice in the U.S.”

    “As a physician, I was proud to co-sponsor the ‘Protect Children’s Innocence Act’ which would prohibit harmful medical procedures used to treat gender dysphoria in transgender minors, including puberty blockers and surgeries in which minors alter their body to correspond to a sex that differs from their biological sex,” Harris said.

    Harris went on to say, “Many pediatricians, particularly pediatric endocrinologists, have expressed serious concerns about the use of puberty blockers, hormone blockers, and sex transition surgeries in minors. These doctors know that these medications and procedures can impact children’s bone growth, fertility, and risk of breast and prostate cancer. Meanwhile, HHS has pressured providers to provide this care or else face discrimination lawsuits. We must protect our children.”


  6. HE HAS THE PROOF: DC Gulag Political Prisoner and Decorated Army Special Forces Soldier Jeffrey McKellop Reveals Extent of Government Agents at J6 Capitol Protest – IT WAS A COMPLETE SET-UP! (Audio)
    By Jim Hoft Mar. 17, 2023 8:00 am803 Comments

    For weeks now The Gateway Pundit was informed about Jeffrey McKellop a decorated former 3rd Special Forces Group soldier and US government contractor. Jeffrey is currently being held in the DC Gulag in Washington DC as a political prisoner after he served his country for 22 years of military service.

    Jeffrey has been silenced by his government. After his arrest in March 2021, Jeffrey delved into video footage and documented evidence from January 6. Jeffrey was able to identify numerous government informants and agitators in the massive Trump crowd that day. After he put together his evidence he sent it out to numerous contacts. That was when the FBI came into his prison cell and took his research. They then attempted to silence him and banned him from phone and mail privileges.

    Jeffrey’s trial is scheduled to start in April, 2023. He has been in prison for two years TODAY without a trial. He was arrested on March 17, 2021.

    On Thursday Jeffrey McKellop called The Gateway Pundit. We had a long conversation with Jeffrey. And we were blown away. Jeffrey McKellop dropped BOMB after BOMB!

    Jeffrey came from abject poverty and abuse and ran away from home as a young teen. But he did not let this hold him down. Jeffrey focused himself and became a decorated Special Forces Group soldier. What a story he has to tell! Hopefully someday we can all hear it in person.

    ** Please donate here to Jeffrey McKellop’s GiveSendGo account.
    I am not exaggerating when I say this was one of the most explosive interviews TGP has had with a DC Gulag political prisoner. Jeffrey is bright, honest, and brave. His background enabled him to see the crowd control and horrible police abuse from that day. And Jeffrey is not afraid to names names.

    Please take the time to listen to what Jeffrey McKellop has to say about January 6 – the greatest government set-up in American history.

    We have posted much the 43 minute transcript below.

    Jeffrey asked if we could post his fundraiser page so he can help his children. The government took everything from this American patriot.

    From the audio interview: (Please forgive the typing while during the interview- lesson learned)

    Jeffrey McKellop: Okay. I’ll give you a quick bio. My name is Jeff Mckellop. I was born in 1965 to biker parents in Los Angeles, California, actually in San I’m Pedro in Long Beach, and I moved north with my mother and my brother to Sacramento, where we stayed for the rest of my years. I ran away from home when I was 15 and never looked back. Kept moving forward. Actually, it was pretty fun. I lived in a water pump, old abandoned water pump house on the Sacramento River outside of West Sacramento for a little bit before I met a couple, John and Cindy Jones, who took me in. I was mowing their lawn and pulling weeds one day, and they asked me if I had a place to stay. And I showed them where I lived there. Like, holy shit. Anyway, so they helped me get through high school, and I left that and got into college. But college wasn’t for me. So one day I was walking down the street with a girlfriend in Chico, California, by the recruiting station. Saw at the army recruiter, just a bunch of guys paddling down the river, all CAMBOD up.

    And I was like, oh, hell yeah, I want to do that. And one day in class I stood up, left all my shit behind, man. Walked away. Left my bike, backpack, all of it, man. Enjoyed the service for 22 years. I did a short stint with Second Range Battalion, and then I got into the Special Forces. In the last ten years of my military career, I served for 20 years in the military and another eight years as an individual contractor, an independent contractor for the government. Never been arrested. Hold a TS clearance for decades. – Tthen January 6 changed my life completely. I’ve never been to a rally before. My buddy asked me to go. I told him I didn’t want to. I’m like, look, dude, I can’t do that because Antifa and BLM are going to be there, and you know if we go, that there’s going to be issues, man. And when I stood back and started when we got there and everybody moved to the capital, I was like, wow, this is pretty exhilarating, man.

    This was unbelievable. That this many people could be so angry. I’ve never been in a situation like that. It’s pretty ominous. And then I just started watching MPD, beating innocent women. And they beat an elderly woman like you wouldn’t believe, dude. Sergeant Riley and Corporal Glenn Lamborghini of the MPD were beating relentlessly, man, just likr somebody told them to do it. Like, it was their job to start engaging innocent people, man. And that’s how I got drawn into it.

    Jim Hoft: Where was that that they were beating that woman and is there video of it? And has anybody written about that?

    Jeffrey McKellop: I’ve written about it constantly, and I have watched personally hundreds and hundreds of hours of body cam footage, and the names I’m about to tell you right now, and the accounts that have taken place are true. And I’ve watched it many times with my own eyes. Okay.

    A man named Tim Rivers and Lydia Sorrow, have been supporting me in here because I have no money, dude. I begged and pleaded with the FBI. Jeffrey Johannes, undercover agent with the FBI. Mr. Jeffrey Johannes. I begged and pleaded with him, please let me out just for a couple of weeks so I can secure my things. I have lost my house, my bank accounts, my IRA, my mutual fund. I lost my badass bicycle, my car, all my clothes, all my military gear.

    I have nothing. Literally, I have nothing. There is nothing left because they crashed my house when I wasn’t there. When nobody was there – They came for me, man, and I beg to plead it with the courts. Please give me bond. No, we’ll have none of that. Judge Dickles(sp) As he was speaking with the prosecution, and they’re all bobbing their little heads up and down in agreement like good little disciples. And here I sit. Man And I even told Kianaga(sp), my last attorney, the guy had never even looked at any of the videos, never did anything, man. He was just going to go for some dynamic I’m a plea deal, man. I’m like, dude, are we going to look at the evidence?

    The nNext thing I know it I’m getting an eight to ten-year plea deal. A ten to twelve-year plea deal. A twelve to 15-year plea deal.

    Jim Hoft: Oh, my God.

    Jeffrey McKellop: Yeah, man. I’m like, dude, did I kill somebody that day? I mean, did I rob a bank and shoot the hostage? I’m like, how many people did I whack, man? I’m like, I’ve never been arrested before. How could you get this? That’s a death sentence, man? I’ll be almost 80 years old by the time I get out of here.

    Jim Hoft: I know that you have done a lot of research, that you’re very bright, that you understand what happened there more than anyone. I don’t know. I’m going to record this and put this up. It’d be great eventually if we could get some footage, actually. I understand that’s going to be very difficult or just I’ll put the transcript up, but it’d be great to just hear you explain what you found, and it sounds like you’re saying that there were a lot of federal operatives. Do you believe, that they were there that day?

    Jeffrey McKellop: I know for a fact that there were undercover agents, man. I saw them. I spotted it. And when you find one, then you know what to look for, and then you find them. All undercover agents, they all wear the same thing. They all move the same way. They all get together the same way. Why do I know these? Because I used to do the same thing. Spaghetti cord, two way systems in the ear. I was like, holy shit. Is that what that guy’s got on us? – I watched this one on the Western Terrace, this one door, actually, it was on the East Terrace. It shows Capitol Police come up, man, and they’ve got a yellow bag. Always remember, follow the yellow bag. Follow the yellow bag and watch for the man in blue, all right? And the Capitol Police come up, and they drop the bag on the ground, and two sets of double sided flex cups fall to the ground.

    They stand around. They bullshit. The guy reaches down, and I’m watching him, he looks directly at the flex cuffs, grabs the bag because the bag was open, and picks it up, and then they all walk inside, leaving the flex cuffs on the ground. People walk back and forth. I’m going to cut out the bullshit, okay? And so people walk around. They’re doing this, they’re doing that. Nobody touches the equipment on the ground. And all of a sudden, this guy walks up.

    Military Spec haircut, aviator sunglasses, nondescript blue top, 511 style pants, Merrill or North Face shoes, hiking boot. Hiking shoe, hiking boot. Reaches down, grabs the set of the cuffs, puts them on the door, tries them out, throws it on the ground, grabs the other side, and then zip strips both the door handles closed and walks away. Moments later this is good moments later, probably about a few minutes later, the doors start being beat open. Beat open, beat open. And then the flex cups break. Everybody comes spilling out. Capitol Police and MPD and civilians alike. Somebody is inside with a fire extinguisher spraying people down, all right? And it calms down. It goes on, it goes on, goes on, goes on. And everybody calms down. And they go back inside, the doors closed. They come back out with the Capitol Police again later on, and they still have the bag in their hand. They set the bag down, they mill around, they grab the bag and they go out. I’m like, what the hell is up with this bag? And then, lo and behold, here it comes. Later on, here comes this geek, and I’m going to get to this some geeked out woman and a geeked out black man in Trump gear.

    And they look stupid as sin. Hat, scarf, face, pants, all this stuff. And she’s carrying the green bag and the yellow bag, and this guy’s got a black roll away pelican case. And they stand there with this stuff and they set it down on the ground and they walk away. I’m like, holy shit. What is this? Next thing you know, a curiosity killed the cat. Satisfaction brought him back. The people come up, they open up the bag, they start pulling out the flex cuffs, they pull out a clipboard, they open up the black pelican case, and they pull out MPD body armor, MPD helmets, and Pecans a bullhorn. And they’re trying the stuff. How do I know it’s MPD? Because it says police on the body armor and it says police on the helmets. And they’re pulling all this stuff out and they’re wandering around.

    Yeah, they’re all excited and they take off. I’m like, this is unbelievable. This is staged. This is completely staged. Who loses control of all those items in a riot? Are you kidding me? The next thing you know, it, Here come MPD. One guy’s got a bullhorn, one guy’s got a baton. They walk up, they put the equipment in the black box, shut the black box, and then walk away. And this rose by suspicion that there are actors and players in the crowds. So I’m sitting there and I’m watching this video, and all of a sudden the camera angle moves. The camera moves to the left, and then it comes back to the right. And I’m like, Holy shit. Whoever is in the control room is monitoring the actors and they are giving him the cues, they’re giving him directions, they’re giving them the high sign to do whatever damage they need to do. There’s so much, man. And I’m like, Holy crap, this is unbelievable. So that’s just one camera angle.

    I’ve been saying this for a year and a half now, that antifa were there, antifa and BLM were there, but they changed their chameleons, man. They look like us, they dress like us, they act like us, and then they committed violence in our name. That is guerrilla warfare. And that’s exactly what this dude was talking about on Vince Coglianese yesterday on 159 after 03:00. I can’t remember the time, but I might say the words dude say guerrilla warfare and it’ll solidify the deal. He said everything else, that they were antifa and BLM were designed to do everything except call it guerrilla warfare, man. This is terrorist act.

    Jim Hoft: Could I ask you a couple of questions quick, Jeffrey? One was, were these operatives I guess we call them operatives were they all dressed the same? Typically. And do you think the operatives you saw, were they aware of each other? I know the FBI had operatives there. They’ve admitted it. We know that the DOJ had some people there. We know that Metro Police had people there undercover. So do you think they identified each other, or do you think they were working independently?

    Jeffrey McKellop: I’ll get to that, too, man. I’ve covered all bases, all right? So this is how it works, all right? Every group of people have to have a handler. In any military aspect that we do, you have to have a platoon sergeant or a team sergeant or a commander that tells the team sergeant what to do. And then it goes down all the way to the lowest private, to the foot soldier. All right, now we’ll start with the MP. No, we’ll go back. All right, you have the civilians that were in the crowd. And these are teams that I found. They’re the yellow tape crew, the red tape crew, the Gadsden Flag crew. And then you had the Orange hat crew. They were all identifying themselves by wearing a piece of yellow, red or the Gaston Flag tape, or patch on their helmet, their shoulder, their chest, their back, or whatever. I found a guy that had two rolls of red tape attached to his back so his Cohorts can come up. If they lose their identification of their signature, they can rip another piece off and slap it back on. Or if they get another player, they can add to the masses by giving them an identification code.

    These people got together when I first saw him, they got together inside the Capitol. I’m like, look at this guy with the red tape on his hat. I bet he gets together with somebody else. Sure enough, moments later, four or five of them got together, started pointing, ushering people into different chambers, ushering people into doors, breaking windows, disturbing things.

    Yeah, that’s how they identified themselves. And they’re crisis actors, okay? These people are crisis actors. It’s the airsoft people. It’s the paramilitary groups. It’s the geeks, the freaks, the guys that couldn’t make it in the army or wherever. And they get together after playing airsoft, and they talk about this stuff, like I said, with antifa. They were utilizing guerrilla warfare. Okay? They act like patriots. They look like patriots, but they’re creating damage in our name. And then they would disperse and go to another location or wherever they sharpen their knives. All right, so the yellow and red tape crews were pretty prominent in the capital. The Gaston flags. You’ll see them, man, they’re waving the Don’t Tread on me flag. And then all of a sudden, you started seeing these they’re waving this flag around like it’s a staging point or something. And I’m like, check this guy out. I’m going to throw something else at you here in a moment. These guys are animals in here. It’s like a bunch of simians, man. They got together and then they would do their thing and they would disperse. But how do they know where to go?

    How do they know to get together? They all had walkie talkies. They had two way calm systems. You have to have a handler. Whoever was in the control booth was controlling the people on the ground. Whether it was the undercover provocateurs, the crisis actors, the undercover agents, whoever hell it was, or the MPD or Capitol Police. They have to have somebody that eyes on the ground and eyes in the air in order to control the mobs because there was just too many things going on at once. Now look at the MPD, all right? They got out there. They formed the skirmish line. I was one of two to 300 people on the southwest terrace to make it up onto the platform. And we didn’t go any farther past the line or anything or their gates and stuff that they had. But people were acting weird, man. And it didn’t dawn on me until later on. There was a guy, come on, we got to get him. He’s trying to motivate. We got to fucking do this, we got to do that. But he’s motivating people, all right?

    So what I’m saying is three elements will start a riot. You have two of the three elements and it’ll start violence in any crowd. You have the instigators, the agitators and the motivators. Instigators, agitators and motivators. The Instigators are breaking the shit. The Agitators is what I came in contact with. They were just beating on the ground. They were throwing stuff up and down on the ground, slapping the pavement. They had a stick. They were beating on the gate. They were making noise, but they weren’t doing anything. They weren’t hurting anybody. But they were agitating the crowd to make it look like it’s violence. And this is in my discovery. This is what the prosecution gave me, man. I’m like, look at this guy right here, man. This is guys, Instigating and Agitating people and motivating, man. I’m like, he’s got all the three right here. Why isn’t he in here with us? Oh, because he was a player.

    Jim Hoft: Wow. Let me ask you this, Jeffrey. What about the police who started firing on people with the gas canisters without a warning? How would you classify that? As an instigator? An agitator?

    Jeffrey McKellop: I watched the sissies on their bicycles. Team 54, 64 and 74 ride up from the street all the way from the start to the finish. Officers (sp) Cow, tyndall crispin, harrows bagshaw, smiley lamborghini, hawkins, edwards riley. crispin, bagshaw. Augustine.

    These are just some of the names off the top of my head that I have written down and sent out to countless people. If you were one of the few fortunate people that got my message in a bottle, then you would know what I’m talking about. These guys came to whip ass as soon as Creston loaded up a bag full of Mark 46 with a deadly or dangerous weapon. CS Canisters and Tara Tindall had a bag full of 40 millimeter grenade launch ammunition. She was not only unauthorized to shoot that weapon, she asked Sergeant Edwards of the MPD, hey, is this legal? Can I fire this thing? He’s like, yeah, go ahead. Shoot that right there. Get that guy right there. Shoot it into the crowd. And she was shooting people point blank with this thing, man. That’s a deadly weapon, dude. It’s either Daniel or David Tau, sergeant of the MPD, who he was in it to win it… That dude was everywhere at once shooting people, handcuffing tasing people, beating people, relentlessly masing people with no provocation. He was instigating, agitating, and motivating his teams to incite more violence, and that is what they did.

    Sergeant Thau.

    Here’s the names one more time. Of the biggest offenders that day were Tau, Tyndall, Crestman, Harrows, Bagshaw Augustine, Edwards, Riley Lamborghini, Patera, Hawkins, Hardy. The FBI came to my cell one day. This facility has never seen anything like it because I was putting all this information out. People have to know, man, what the hell happened? Sure. So the FBI got wind of my messages in a bottle, dude, and they came to my cell, and they handcuffed me like a dog to the railing outside, making fun of me at the same time. No big deal. There were sissies. What were they wearing? 511 style pants, Merrill shoes, nondescript blue or checkerboard top. And they all wear the same thing. They can’t help it, man. And they took all my notes, all my records of court, everything. Anything that had writing on it, they took. So that was the end of that. And I don’t get mail in here anymore. I don’t get books. I don’t get anything.

    Jim Hoft: So if somebody writes you, you don’t even get that anymore?

    McKellop: No, I haven’t had anything like that for about a year and a half.

    Jim Hoft: How do they justify that? Is there a justification?

    Please listen to the rest of the audio. It is very informative on what really happened on January 6 and how the US government treats its political prisoners.

    What an absolute tragedy. It is infuriating

  8. STUNNING: Janet Yellen Admits Smaller Regional Midwest Banks Will Not Be Bailed Out – Only Big Banks Deemed Worthy by Biden Regime (VIDEO)
    By Jim Hoft Mar. 17, 2023 10:15 am404 Comments

    On Thursday, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Thursday testified before the Senate Finance Committee.

    During her testimony, Secretary Janet Yellen admitted that smaller regional banks across the country will not be bailed out by the US government. Only larger banks will be bailed out like Silicon Valley Bank and their depositors from China connected to the Chinese Communist Party. You really wouldn’t believe it unless you heard it for yourself.

    Senator James Lankford, Republican from Oklahoma, grilled Yellen on who will be bailed out by the federal government and who will not. Lankford pointed out that the Biden-Yellen plan will force Americans to take money out of smaller banks and deposit it in the chosen banks the government has deemed worthwhile of protecting.

    Once again, this is something straight out of a third-world nation.

    Here is the transcript:

    Sen. Lankford: Will the deposits in every community bank in Oklahoma, regardless of their size, be fully insured now? Are they fully recovered? Every bank, every community bank in Oklahoma, regardless of the size of the deposit, will they get the same treatment that SVBP just got or Signature Bank just got?

    Janet Yellen: A bank only gets that treatment if a majority of the FDIC board, a supermajority, a supermajority of the Fed board, and I, in consultation with the president, determine that the failure to protect uninsured depositors would create systemic risk and significant economic and financial consequences.

    Sen. Lankford: Right. So what is your plan to keep large depositors from moving their funds out of community banks into the big banks? We have seen the mergers of banks over the past decade. I’m concerned you’re about to accelerate that by encouraging anyone who has a large deposit in a community bank to say, we’re not going to make you whole, but if you go to one of our preferred banks, we will make you whole at that point.

    Janet Yellen: Look, I mean, that’s certainly not something that we’re encouraging…
