Donor allegedly offered $20M to recruit a Tlaib primary challenger

Etienne Note: I just covered how easy it is for monied interests to rig elections in my recent article:Why (and How!) You Should Help Your Kids Steal Their Student Council ElectionThis is exactly the dynamic we covered in the article!

by Ursula Perano And Nicholas Wu

A Michigan businessman called Democratic Senate candidate Hill Harper to offer $20 million in campaign contributions if he agreed to drop out and instead mount a primary challenge to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, according to a source with direct knowledge of the call.

The source added that Harper declined the alleged Oct. 16 offer from donor Linden Nelson — which would have split the campaign money between $10 million in bundled contributions directly to Harper’s campaign and $10 million in independent expenditures. Harper declined to comment on the record about the alleged call from Nelson, a Michigan entrepreneur and past donor to candidates in both parties, but he recounted the call in the same terms as the source in a post on X after this story’s publication.

But the episode illustrates the intensity of the blowback toward Tlaib, the only Palestinian American in Congress, in response to her outspoken criticism of the Israeli government since its war with Hamas began. More than 20 Democrats joined Republicans in voting to censure Tlaib earlier this month after she invoked a pro-Palestinian slogan that’s widely seen as calling for the eradication of Israel, and pro-Israel Democrats are still searching for a candidate to primary her.

POLITICO reached Nelson briefly to seek comment on the alleged call to Harper, but he ended the call after a few seconds and did not respond to subsequent calls, texts and emails seeking comment.

Three of Tlaib’s fellow progressive critics of Israeli government policy, Reps. Summer Lee (D-Pa.), Cori Bush (D-Mo.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), are facing their own Democratic challengers who are touting their more pro-Israel rhetoric and voting records. Harper, an actor and business owner, has also positioned himself as a progressive in the primary to succeed retiring Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) — but he’s struggled to gain traction as Senate rival Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) leads in polling and fundraising.

Voluntaryism – Featured Charity Opportunity

Rebuild The Turtle Sanctuary & Bonfil Beach from Hurricane Otis

From givesendgo.com – https://www.givesendgo.com/Turtle-Sanctuary

Update:  We just sent the first $315 to the Sanctuary!  THANK YOU! to everyone that kicked In!!!

Campamento Tortuguero Playa Hermosa is a turtle sanctuary on Bonfil  Beach outside of Acapulco that rescues sea turtle eggs that would be likely destroyed by vehicles on the beaches or pilfered by tourists.

The sanctuary protects the eggs, hatches them and releases the babies into the ocean while protecting them from seagulls and other winged predators.  

The 35-year-old sanctuary is run by the mother/daughter duo of Monica and Michel Vallarino, who have helped educate the community and the tourists on the ecology of the turtles while simultaneously providing a refuge for puppies, kittens, ducks,  rabbits, and other wayward animals.

The Art of Liberty  Foundation hosted an annual fundraiser from 2018-2020 called the Art of  Liberty on the Beach (aKa The Turtle Party), where many of the leading artists in the liberty movement have rocked the sanctuary, including Grant “Prezence” Ellman, Truniversal/Free Willow, Alais Clay, the  Freenauts, DJ Koala, DJ Ramiro Romani and ELA-mental among others.

Airline Mayday Radio Calls Up 386% in 2023

By John Leake

The following is a very spooky chart.

SQUAWK 7700 is the airline radio code that indicates a serious issue onboard the aircraft. It can be input by pilots or instructed by Air Traffic Control, and it alerts controllers and ground crew to prepare for the arrival of the aircraft.

I pulled the chart from a report detailing an inquiry conducted by veteran Virgin Australia Capt. Shane Murdock, who was fired from Virgin for refusing the COVID-19 shots. Captain Murdock who also gave a fascinating interview with reporter Charles Kovess on TNT Radio.

The dramatic increase of SQUAWK 7700 codes since 2022 was apparently compiled bya bot set up by the X account @GCFlightAlerts. It posts when a pilot squawks 7700 anywhere in the world.

Between 2018, and 2019, the mayday average was 29.1 per cent of all distress calls. During 2022, mayday calls increased by 272 per cent. In the first three months of 2023, the increase was 386 per cent. The graph shows there was an instant, steep increase when the vaccines were mandated to pilots.

Visualizing the Pyramid of Global Wealth Distribution

Etienne Note: The Scam of this chart is that they didn’t break it down by billionaires, which make up a small but amazingly disproportionate number and the percentage of those tied to “Government” fractional reserve banking (Rockefeller), monopolies (Fink, Schwartzman, , unnecessary military-industrial complex spending, monopolized media (Turner, Murdoch) , monopolized AMA Rockefeller medicine (Pfizer, Moderna, Baxter, Lilly, Merck) , and privatizing DARPA technologies developed on the tax-payer nickel (Musk).  Please let me know if there is anyone in our audience who would like to do the math and break it down by Billionaires?

By Dorothy Neufeld

Who controls global wealth?

In 2022, the world’s millionaires held nearly half of net household wealth. Decades of low interest rates led equities and real estate values to soar, and these assets are disproportionately held among the world’s wealthiest.

Gene-Edited Humans? Scientists Sound Alarm as UK Approves CRISPR Therapy to Treat Blood Disease

by  Brenda Baletti, Ph.D.

U.K. regulators on Thursday approved a therapy that uses CRISPR gene editing technology to treat two blood disorders. U.S. federal regulators are poised to approve that same treatment in December.

The exa-cel therapy, which goes by the brand name Casgevy, is the world’s first CRISPR therapy for humans to be approved for the market.

CRISPR is a gene editing technology that acts as a pair of “genetic scissors,” allowing scientists to edit sections of DNA by “snipping” specific portions of it and replacing them with new segments. First announced in a 2012 paper, CRISPR is celebrated as a cheap and easy way to edit genes.

Its inventors won the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2020. In recent years, applications in plant manipulation and research on possible use in humans have proliferated as the technology has been promoted as a potential solution to problems running from disease, to food security to climate change.

Robotic Hand with Bones, Ligaments and Tendons Created for First Time Using 3D Printing

By Andy Corbley

Using new innovations in 3D printing, scientists at ETH Zurich have succeeded for the first time in printing a robotic hand with bones, ligaments, and tendons—all made of different polymers in one go.

The various polymers can be fine-tuned to replicate the elasticity or rigidity of a human hand, representing a major advancement over existing 3D-printed prosthetics.

While 3D printing technology was previously limited to fast-curing plastics, researchers have now made it suitable for slow-curing plastics as well.

They say these materials have “decisive” advantages as they have enhanced elastic properties and are more durable and robust.

The use of such polymers is made possible by new technology developed by researchers at ETH Zurich in Switzerland and a US startup from Mass. Institute of Technology which can be used to create delicate structures and parts with cavities as desired. InkBit from MIT now offers the technology and prints complex objects on customer request.

Israeli Forces Killed Some of Their Own Citizens in Crossfire While Fighting Hamas on October 7

by Vigilant Citizen compilation.

The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) killed Israeli Nova music festival attendees near the Gaza border while aiming for Hamas militants during the attack on October 7, according to an Israeli police investigation. It is unknown how many of the 364 concert goers were killed by the IDF. This development raises questions about the Israeli forces’ refusal to negotiate for the release of captives, feeding into the complexity of which side is responsible for the deaths on October 7.

Syrian Girl tweeted that Israeli Apache helicopters fired their own civilians. She shared this passage from an article in Yedioth Ahronoth, a major Israeli newspaper: “The pilots realized that there was tremendous difficulty in distinguishing within the occupied outposts and settlements who was a terrorist and who was a soldier or civilian … The rate of fire against the thousands of terrorists was tremendous at first, and only at a certain point, did the pilots begin to slow down the attacks and carefully select the targets.”

Dutch Central Bank Admits It Has Prepared For A New Gold Standard

By Jan Nieuwenhuijs

In a recent interview the Dutch central bank (DNB) shares it has equalized its gold reserves, relative to GDP, to other countries in the eurozone and outside of Europe. This has been a political decision. If there is a financial crisis the gold price will skyrocket, and official gold reserves can be used to underpin a new gold standard, according to DNB. These statements confirm what I have been writing for the past years about central banks having prepared for a new international gold standard.

Wouldn’t a central bank that has one primary objective—maintaining price stability—serve its mandate best by communicating the currency it issues can be relied upon in all circumstances? By saying gold will be the safe haven of choice during a financial collapse, DNB confesses its own currency (the euro) does not weather all storms. Indirectly, DNB encourages people to own gold to be protected from financial shocks, making the transition towards a gold based monetary system more likely.

Libertarian Javier Milei Is Argentina’s Next President: What Happens Next

By TYLER DURDEN

decisively won the second-round presidential election in Argentina, Latin America’s third largest economy with 45 million people. With 99.3% of the votes counted, Milei obtained 55.7% of the valid votes, while incumbent Finance Minister Sergio Massa received 44.3%. Massa conceded the results of the election before the results were even released, and stated that “starting tomorrow” Mr. Milei “is responsible for providing certainty.” President Alberto Fernandez similarly acknowledged the election results. Later, it was reported that Massa could request a leave of absence from his position as Minister of Finance. Mr. Milei’s presidential term begins on December 10.

Milei campaigned against the political establishment and parts of the elite. Amusingly, even the staunch establishmentarians at Goldman Sachs admit that “his diagnosis of the country’s economic woes is accurate: the size of the government has grown too large, it spends more than it collects, and it uses the central bank to finance its shortfalls.” In other words, just like the US.

IMF Releases Digital Currency Handbook For World’s Central Banks

BY TYLER DURDEN

The IMF’s “Central Bank Digital Currency Virtual Handbook” published last week pointed out that the increased use of CBDCs can “reduce dollarization” of the global economy—a situation where countries move away from relying on the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency. De-dollarization would push up borrowing costs in the United States, making loans expensive for businesses and individuals, thus affecting economic growth. Stock market values can also crash, reducing the savings and investments of Americans.

In addition to de-dollarization, a CBDC “could increase risks of flight to safety from retail bank deposits in periods of market stress.” During times of market volatility, customers withdraw their deposits and move it into safe assets to avoid losing money in scenarios like bank collapses.

A Message From Reiner Fuëllmich

By PATRICIA HARRITY

As has been reported in the Expose, attorney Dr. Reiner Fuëllmich was arrested on Friday the 13th October while trying to renew a passport. He was detained in Mexico and escorted back to Germany where he was rearrested and imprisoned. There has been very little publicity surrounding his arrest and current situation, however, we have previously published an update on Dr. Fuëllmich that had been shared by his friend Dr. Elsa Schieder and attorney Dagmar Schoen on the 28th October. The video and transcript can be seen here.

Last week Elsa Scheider again, shared an update, this time with a very short message from Dr. Fuëllmich. It is very short, however, I thought it worth sharing here as it confirms, if not a lot else, that after a month, Reiner Fuëllmich is still in prison!

On the 9th November ELSA wrote.

Beyond Orwell’s 1984, 5G and the Launching of 6G: “Easy to Take Down a Society that Is Digital”. UNCTAD Attempts Accomplishing this Doom Scenario

By Peter Koenig

“Hell is Empty and the Devils are All Here”. William Shakespeare, “The Tempest”, 1623 

Peter Koenig’s Contemporary Analysis of “The Tempest 2020-2030”

We, the People, are in a race against the Globalists committed to Depopulation; control the survivors, exploit us, dehumanize us, and ultimately digitize us, so that we can be remotely controlled by 5G;

And, now, just “launched” by China, 6G. See China launches ultra-high-speed next-generation Internet backbone – SHINE News.

Nobody really knows, or at least has not publicly said what 6G is meant to do, what 5G cannot already do. Incidentally, has the health impact of 6G been studied? Maybe. But nobody divulges the results.

This is how Qualcomm describes 5G:

5th generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices. See this.

Etienne Wins Majority of Conservative Audience Even While Pointing Out Trump is Controlled Opposition

This interview with Vigilant News’ Just Deschamps has racked up over 73,000+ views on Rumble alone.  Vigilant News is part of Badlands Media, an overwhelmingly conservative media operation.  Etienne caused some controversy by discussing why he thinks Donald Trump is “Controlled Opposition” that put Goldman Sachs at Treasury, the “ex” Rothschild’s banker Wilbur Ross at Commerce, was connected to Jeffrey Epstein, went along with “The Covid,” pumped the “Vaccine”, etc.  

Despite all this the interview has over 98% “Thumbs Up” and the comments include: “what this guy says is the most important stuff ever” AND “Wow.. He might have just upset most of the Badlands community but good stuff to be sure!” AND “Watched it twice.

Secretive White House Surveillance Program Gives Cops Access to Trillions of US Phone Records

by wired

A little-known surveillance program tracks more than a trillion domestic phone records within the United States each year, according to a letter WIRED obtained that was sent by US senator Ron Wyden to the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Sunday, challenging the program’s legality.

According to the letter, a surveillance program now known as Data Analytical Services (DAS) has for more than a decade allowed federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to mine the details of Americans’ calls, analyzing the phone records of countless people who are not suspected of any crime, including victims. Using a technique known as chain analysis, the program targets not only those in direct phone contact with a criminal suspect but anyone with whom those individuals have been in contact as well.

Fed Faces Staggering Losses: Trillions in Treasury and Mortgage Bonds Bought Over the Decade Now Valued at $6.4 Trillion, Sparking Concerns of Further Bank Bailouts

By CWR

In an unprecedented development, the Federal Reserve’s urgent crisis escalates as its decade-long bond-buying spree, valued at $7.7 trillion, reveals a shocking loss, with unrealized losses on the balance sheet surpassing $1.3 trillion for the first time ever. The amortized cost now stands at 20.4% more than the mark-to-market price, presenting an alarming financial discrepancy. This perilous situation extends beyond the central bank, with countless banks now facing imminent trillions in losses due to manipulated asset prices in the bond market. As the threat of further bank bailouts looms large, urgent concerns intensify about the stability of the financial system. It’s crucial to note that selling devalued securities may reduce the impact on the money supply, adding a layer of complexity to an already critical scenario demanding immediate attention to avert a potential crisis.

Skyrocketing restaurant prices outpace grocery costs; Restaurants are going bust.

By CWR

“If you’re watching your budget, it might be time to skip the drive-thru and head to the supermarket.

In the 12 months through October, higher restaurant prices drove food prices above overall inflation, even as grocery prices were relatively low.

For the year, grocery prices rose 2.1%, according to Consumer Price Index data released Tuesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But menu prices were up 5.4%, driven largely by a 6.2% rise at limited-service restaurants, which include fast food and fast casual spots. At full-service restaurants, where servers take your order at the table, prices were up 4.3% for the year, according to the BLS.

Fast food and fast casual have hiked prices, such as CMG raised prices 13% annually, MCD 10%.

Lara Logan’s Complete Series Investigating Suspected J6 Provacateur Ray Epps

By Lara Logan/ The Rest of the Story

Lara Logan investigates the curious case of Ray Epps, who appears on video numerous times exhorting Trump supporters to go inside the Capitol building on January 6. On one of those occasions, social media personality Baked Alaska called Epps out as ‘Fed’. Video also appears to show Epps pushing a metal Trump sign into a police line. Epps denied working for the FBI when he testified before the January 6 Committee. He denied going inside the Capitol. Epps was charged two and a half years after the protest at the Capitol with a Class A misdemeanor for disorderly conduct on restricted grounds; he pleaded guilty. The maximum sentence for the charge Epps faces is one year in prison, one year of supervised release and a fine. He will be sentenced on December 20, 2023.

New Report: Young People Dying of Cancer at ‘Explosive’ Rates, UK Government Data Show

young people cancer death uk feature

by Mike Capuzzo

Teenagers and young people in their 20s, 30s and 40s in the U.K. are dying from rapidly metastasizing and terminal cancers at an unprecedented rate since mass COVID-19 vaccination began, according to a new analysis by Edward Dowd.

The 45-page report by Dowd, a former Wall Street hedge fund manager and author of “‘Cause Unknown’: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 and 2022,” alarmed some oncologists who characterized it as a sharp reversal of decades of mortality data.

Dowd based his analysis on readily available government statistics from the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics.

In an interview with The Defender, Dowd said he and his research partners, who include a handful of high-level scientists, data analysts and financial experts, examined all International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, (ICD-10) codes for cause of death in the U.K. in the study period of  2010-2022 to investigate trends in malignant neoplasms (C00 to C99 codes).

Death of 12-Year-Old Boy in France Following HPV Vaccination Triggers Probe Into Gardasil Safety and School Vaccine Campaigns

By  Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D.

French prosecutors have launched an investigation into the death of a 12-year-old boy who collapsed minutes after receiving Gardasil’s human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in a school setting and subsequently died of head trauma, according to French media.

The boy, referred to in news reports as Elouan, studied at Saint-Dominique College, a private school in Saint-Herblain, near Nantes. According to Agence France-Presse (AFP), he felt “malaise” 15 minutes after vaccination and sustained a “heavy fall.”

French newspaper Le Monde reported that the vaccination occurred on Oct. 19 as part of a nationwide campaign prompting HPV vaccines in French schools for students 11-14 years old.

Following his injury, Elouan was taken to Nantes University Hospital, but his condition deteriorated and he died on Oct. 27.

Bayer to pay $1.56B in latest loss over cancer-causing Roundup weedkiller

by Shannon Thaler

A Cole County, Mo., jury found on Friday that Bayer’s Monsanto business was liable for claims of negligence, design defects and failing to warn plaintiffs of the potential dangers of using Roundup, according to court documents.

Valorie Gunther of New York, Jimmy Draeger of Missouri and Daniel Anderson of California were awarded a combined $61.1 million in compensatory damages and $500 million each in punitive damages.

Each of the plaintiffs was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma that they alleged was caused by using Roundup on their family property.

Draeger’s wife, Brenda, was also awarded $100,000 for the harm she allegedly suffered from her husband’s disease.

The plaintiffs argued that exposure to the glyphosate in Roundup caused the cancer, which typically starts in white blood cells and causes symptoms including enlarged lymph nodes, fatigue, dramatic weight loss, trouble breathing and night sweats, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Pentagon Publishes Proposal For Ethnic Cleansing and Colonization of Gaza; Destruction of Lebanon

by Dan Cohen

The official U.S. military publication Army University Press published an article written on behalf of the Department of Defense calling for the ethnic cleansing of Gaza and destruction of Lebanon in a November 2023 online exclusive.

This outlet is described on its website as  “the US Army’s premier multimedia organization”, and an “entry point for cutting-edge thought and discussion on topics important to the Army and national defense”, which “makes timely and relevant information available to leaders in the military, government, and academia.”

While the article notes that “the views expressed in this article are those of the author and do not reflect the views of the U.S. Army, Department of Defense, or any other agency of the U.S. government.” the fact that such a radical proposal was published in the top U.S. Army publication, demonstrates that explicit support for ethnic cleansing and genocide is well accepted in its intellectual and policy-making circles.

New Jersey Joins Growing List Of States Banning Sale Of New Gas-Powered Cars

 by Station Gossip

New Jersey officials announced Tuesday that the state would be joining a growing list of Democrat-led states slated to ban the sale of new gas-powered vehicles by 2035.

New Jersey becomes at least the 17th state to follow some or all of California’s Advanced Clean Cars II rule that was passed by a regulatory board in the summer of 2022. Democratic Governor Phil Murphy said the move will help “lower emissions and improve air quality,” claiming that the new rule will also “preserve consumer choice.” 

“The steps we take today to lower emissions will improve air quality and mitigate climate impacts for generations to come, all while increasing access to cleaner car choices,” Murphy said in a press release. “Indeed, together with my Administration’s continuing investments in voluntary electric vehicle incentives, charging infrastructure, and the green economy, these new standards will preserve consumer choice and promote affordability for hardworking New Jerseyans across the state.”

Over 90% of pro-Palestinian content deleted since Oct. 7 on social media following Israel’s request

by New Arab Staff

Social networking sites, mostly Meta-owned, have deleted thousands of pro-Palestinian posts since the outbreak of Israel’s brutal war in Gaza, in response to Tel Aviv’s request to do so.

The Israeli Attorney General’s Office has sent approximately 9,500 requests since October 7 to Meta – which owns Facebook and Instagram – as well as the video-sharing app TikTok, to remove content related to Israel’s brutal war in Gaza, according to a recent report published by Forbes.

As a result, around 94 percent of that content has been deleted, digital researcher Mona Shttayeh said in an interview with Al Jazeera Mubasher, citing the report.

The number of requests to delete such content has increased since the report’s publication, she said.

Shtayyeh said that it is “impossible” to comprehend the magnitude of the large number of Israeli requests to restrict Palestinian content, adding that the number of demands has increased tenfold since Israel’s onslaught on the besieged strip, which has killed over 14,000 Palestinians began.

Ukraine spent nearly half of Washington’s aid on US debt bonds – media

Etienne Note: Is the organized crime “government” using Kiev for straw purchases of US sovereign debt to prop up the ponzi scheme treasury market?

by RIA Novosti

Ukraine has significantly boosted its holdings of US government debt since the start of the conflict with Russia, the news agency RIA Novosti reported on Wednesday, citing data from the US Treasury and the Ukrainian Finance Ministry.

From February 2022 through the end of September of this year, Kiev’s investment in US debt jumped 1.8 times, or by $10.7 billion, according to RIA. The country’s current holdings of $24.5 billion are the highest since at least 2011. At the end of last winter, Ukraine’s US Treasury portfolio amounted to $13.8 billion, whereas at its lowest level, in mid-summer 2022, it stood at $7.9 billion, RIA’s data shows.

Connecticut City Rejects 5G Citing Evidence of Health Risks

by Suzanne Burdick, Ph.D.

The Board of Representatives in Stamford, Connecticut, earlier this month voted to reject a model agreement that would have allowed AT&T and Verizon to install 5G equipment on city-owned utility poles.

In a bid to get 5G swiftly installed in his state, Gov. Ned Lamont’s office created a template contract between the nation’s top two telecommunication carriers and the state’s five major cities.

Stamford, the state’s second-largest city, is the only city so far to have voted against using the contract. Twenty-one representatives voted against the pact. Five were in favor and eight abstained.

Commenting on the city’s decision, W. Scott McCollough, chief litigator for Children Health Defense’s (CHD) electromagnetic radiation (EMR) cases, told The Defender, “I applaud Stamford’s principled stand.”

Advocates for the contract said Stamford’s rejection might bring a lawsuit against the city, but McCollough disagreed.

These Are The Countries With The Highest Inflation Rates

Venezuela is the country with the highest inflation in the world, with an increase in consumer prices estimated at 360 percent in 2023, according to the latest figures from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), published in October.

This is the tenth consecutive year that the inflation rate in Venezuela is one of the highest on the planet, although it is significantly lower than in 2018, when it reached an astronomical value of 65,000 percent.

As the infographic above shows, three other countries are also in the grip of especially high inflation this year:

Zimbabwe, with an increase in consumer prices estimated at 315 percent, as well as Sudan (256 percent) and Argentina (122 percent).

Age of Electric Jet Planes

The Duxion eJet motor, an electric jet engine will enable electric aviation by using permanent magnet technology to deliver unprecedented power-to-weight ratios within a compact design.

Rim Driven Fan Technology attaches the blades directly to the rim, creating a complete rotor, and moves the electro-mechanical elements to the periphery. The result is a system that is more efficient, quieter, simpler and cheaper.

RDFs provides a boost in thrust, while the motor’s rim distribution enhances torque and cooling efficiency. The lower RPMs and high solidity ratio blades lead to a quieter and more environmentally resilient system. The simplicity of the design also translates to reduced maintenance and certification demands, making RDFs highly scalable and versatile for various aerospace applications.

Duxion’s chairman and CEO, Rick Pilgrim, says that his company is now in the lead regarding the future of electric jet engines.

BREAKING NEWS: Appellate Court Paves the Way for Quarantine Camps!

The court has dismissed our lawsuit, not because we are wrong in our arguments… no, no, indeed we are dead-right. In fact, the court did not even touch the merits of the case. How could they? Instead, the court unbelievably ruled that my plaintiffs somehow do not have standing to sue! If your brain is racing a hundred miles an hour right now trying to figure this out, don’t worry, you are definitely not alone. Every single person I have told about this court ruling, from my plaintiffs, to fellow attorneys, to family members, and so on, has been downright flabbergasted. Rightfully so. One of my family members told me I needed to break it down for her, like she was a Kindergartener. I’ll do the same for you now, because this issue is so crucial for you to understand, and then for you to explain to others.

What the Appellate Division court is saying by reversing the lower court and then dismissing our case for lack of standing is that they believe that Senator George Borrello, Assemblyman Chris Tague, Congressman Mike Lawler, and the citizens’ group Uniting NYS did not have the right to bring this lawsuit last year against the Governor and her DOH for their heinous “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures” regulation. Why not? Because according to this court, my plaintiffs were not injured by the regulation. Why not? Because the court seems to insinuate that the only person with the right to sue is someone who has been forcibly locked in their home against their will, or ripped from their home, taken from their loved ones, and thrown into a quarantine detention center, facility, institution, camp, etc.

IMF: Central banks may control CBDC transactions

IMF: Central banks may control CBDC transactions

by Yudi Sherman

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) last week published a handbook for central banks and regulators on central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), which confirmed that they will not likely feature privacy and autonomy.

A CBDC is a digital currency issued and governed by a central bank. A digital euro, for example, would be issued by the European Central Bank (ECB) — though critics point out that unlike cash, it could also be controlled by the ECB. A digital euro could be used at any point of sale and in any transaction, which would be settled instantly.

At the Singapore FinTech Festival last Wednesday, IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva urged countries to develop CBDCs which she hoped “can replace cash.”

That same day, the IMF published a five-part handbook on CBDCs for policymakers saying that while preserving the privacy of taxpayers is important, governments need to know who is transacting using CBDC for “anti-money laundering” (AML) purposes.

“Using CBDC for domestic transactions requires information on the payer and the payee as part of standard checks for anti–money laundering/combatting the financing of terrorism,” said the handbook. The IMF added, “Information stored in data repositories owned by the central bank” could be easy to “access and cross-reference.”

But the UN agency fretted that if CBDC users feel they lack privacy they may not use the currency as much. Therefore, the IMF recommends central banks implement “privacy-preserving technologies” while at the same time making sure to “allow transparency to regulators.”

The lack of privacy in CBDC was confirmed by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell last year, who said digital currencies will be “identity verified, so [CBDC] would not be anonymous.”

Truth Music of the Week

RAP NEWS | Israel v Palestine - feat. DAM & Norman Finkelstein

Flashback: Rap News from Nine Years Ago… Still relevant and still hysterical!   Decades of failed peace talks have led nowhere; but do not lose hope just yet. Join Robert Foster as he attempts to host the first ever Middle East Peace Raps, using rhyme and reason to bring together Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu, and a representative of Hamas. The picture would not be complete however, without a discussion of “America’s last taboo” (as Edward Said once referred to it): the USA’s role as Israel’s best – and only – buddy in the world (Ok, together with Australia). Featuring special cameos from prominent American Jewish scholar, Dr. Norman Finkelstein, and Palestinian rap legends, DAM, this is an episode for the ages. Join us as we bravely (or perhaps stupidly) take on one of the most bitter, divisive and controversial conflicts of our times: Israel & Palestine.
