It is interesting to watch how the folks in Congress and the White House have been using the at-least- somewhat self-generated crisis over COVID-19 to serve as cover for legislation and other activities that many Americans just might object to. They are assuming that the public is so consumed with the virus, as well as with the riots over the police killing of George Floyd, that it is not paying attention to other high crimes and misdemeanors that the government might be engaged in.

There are three rather interesting stories that have received minimal attention from the mainstream media during the past several weeks that one might think are worthy of press coverage and even of some genuine debate in Congress. A little light shed on some important issues might actually help the public to understand the probable consequences of certain unwise or unnecessary actions undertaken by the federal government.

The first story relates to the Senate vote approving the USA Freedom Re-Authorization Act of 2020 (H.R. 6172). The renewal is particularly important because the act includes some features of the expired Patriot Act that have been exploited by government to surveil Americans without regard for the Fourth Amendment right to be free from searches without a clearly established probable cause that is related to a criminal investigation. It also includes endorsement of the powers of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court (FISA), which was the weapon used without any real justification by the Russiagate co-conspirators in the FBI, the White House and the National Intelligence Office in their illegal surveillance of Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.

The so-called Freedom Act’s reauthorization had been cynically delayed to avoid any attempts to include protections for individual rights in the document. As it stands, under Section 215 the legislation will continue to permit large scale collection of personal and private information as well as bulk collection relating to American citizens. Individuals who are being spied upon on by the Act cannot be made aware that they are being scrutinized and the government is meanwhile under no obligation to limit its searches, being permitted to obtain literally “any tangible thing” to include phone records, tax returns, medical and other health information, gun registrations, internet search history and even library records. Any information collected by the government can be retained and used for five years.

H.R. 6176 passed the Senate but it then had an amendment attached and went back to the House of Representatives for re-approval before being returned to the upper house. Waiting for it in the House is another amendment sponsored by congressmen Zoe Lofgren and Warren Davidson, which would compel the government to obtain a warrant to collect an individual’s internet history. It is a small enough step, and it may fail to pass, but it is at least limited recognition by some legislators of government overreach. In any event, the process whereby the legislation is being approved is nearly invisible even though it is something that can affect the freedoms enjoyed currently by all Americans.

The second bit of government-by-deception inevitably relates to America’s best friend Israel. One recalls that Congress frequently returns from recess and finds that its first order of business is doing something for the Jewish state, pandemic or no pandemic. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee recently passed, without any public discussion or floor debate, the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2020.

The purpose of the Senate bill, S.3176, is to codify into law the military aid, inclusive of extra funding for missile defense, committed to by the United States for Israel in a 2016 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Readers will recall that the package, negotiated by President Barack Obama, uniquely guarantees $3.8 billion per year for ten years. S-3176 was introduced to the upper chamber and co-sponsored by boy-Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who enthused “I was proud to reintroduce this bipartisan bill that strengthens our nation’s strategic security alliance with Israel, a vibrant democracy that faces growing and unprecedented threats to its security and stability.”

When the original MOU was issued, Senator Lindsey Graham remarked that he and other Senators would regard the annual payment as a minimum, that Israel would still expect, and receive, special authorizations as needed. S.3176 would appear to reflect that pledge by Graham, as it includes revised language stating that the annual payment would be “not less than” the $3.8 billion.

The bill also extends Congressional permission for the Pentagon to increase “forward-base” weapons stockpiles in Israel, which the Jewish state can now access as needed without having to provide any notice or seek any approval. Beyond that, the lengthy document is positively dripping with more money for Israel in the form of various co-production and cooperative schemes that will bring absolutely no benefit to the United States.

After the Senate bill is approved in its final form, which will occur imminently, it would then need to reconciled with a similar but possibly even more extreme bill passed by the House in July 2019 by a voice vote, also without any debate or discussion. The House version was introduced by passionate Zionist Congressman Ted Deutch, Democrat of Florida. It would allow Donald Trump or whoever succeeds him to determine that if “Israel is under an existing or imminent threat of military attack” the White House could “direct the immediate transfer to Israel of such defense articles or services the President determines to be necessary to assist Israel.” In other words, the president acting alone could involve the United Starts in a war on behalf of Israel without any approval process, only relying on what Israel is telling him or her about an alleged impending threat.

Finally, there is the latest outrage over Iran. Secretary of State Pompeo has completed his demolition of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) dealing with the Iranian nuclear program, a process which was begun by his boss shortly after taking office. Pompeo has now indicated that any foreign companies and businesses that continue to work at Iranian nuclear facilities under the authority of the JCPOA will be subject to economic sanctions. Astonishingly, the companies in question that include some from China, Russia and Western Europe, have been working to dismantle some of Iran’s former nuclear powerplants to make them usable for other purposes. It was a development that was permitted under the JCPOA and was intended to make sure that Iran would have only limited downstream capability to ramp up its production of enriched uranium. Also, the presence of foreign companies would serve as a guarantee that Iran would not engage in any cheating on the agreement.

Ironically, if the intention of Pompeo and Donald Trump truly is to eliminate Iran as a possible nuclear weapon proliferator, it is now taking steps that are actually counter-productive as the latest move could easily suggest to the Iranian leadership that there is no hope in dealing with the United States, possibly motivating them to begin a secret weapons program.

Pompeo explained in a statement that he could not permit the work to continue because Iran has been “…expanding proliferation sensitive activities. A regime that just days ago invoked ‘the Final Solution’ and which regularly threatens to wipe Israel off the map must never obtain a nuclear weapon…nuclear extortion will lead to increased pressure on Iran and further isolate the regime from the international community.”

As usual, U.S. interests are subordinated to those of Israel, even in a statement that is essentially incoherent. U.N. inspectors believe that Iran might currently have enough enriched uranium in its stockpile to construct one small bomb, but the infrastructure is lacking and it would be a long and laborious process to actually come up with anything usable, so the whole Pompeo pretext is little more than a fabrication. Of course, the Trump Administration’s actual motive might be to provoke the Ayatollahs into doing something reckless so that Washington could play victim and claim grounds for attacking Iran either independently or jointly with Israel. With so many bad things going on simultaneously in the United States, a little hot war in an election year might well be welcomed by the Trump Administration.

So, it appears that Congress and the White House are up to their usual tricks operating in the shadow created by coronavirus. Americans will lose even more of their rights in all probability and only Israel will benefit from still more handouts from the U.S. Treasury as well as shortsighted moves that will inevitably bring about a war between Washington the Tehran.

    With absolutely nauseating regularity, Sen. Lindsey Graham flamboyantly stoops to oh-so-publicly-and-loudly kiss the butt of Israel and the zionists. So much so, one has to wonder what, exactly, do the zionists have over this clown Graham that he continually embarrasses himself with his unctuous fawning over all things Israeli and zionist?

I do wish you would run for president, openly stating what you take to be plain truth. Tulsi is gone. Bernie is gone. The whole space of alternatives to the Judaic order— whether financial or Zionist—is empty. Run an anti-Zionist, anti-war, anti-financialization, anti-Fed, anti-national-culture-dilution-immigration campaign. Go for public banking, public schooling, public health.

    Neither a state nor the Federal Government can set up a church. Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. . . . In the words of Thomas Jefferson, the clause against the establishment of religion by law was intended to erect a “wall of separation between Church and State.” [Everson v.

Justine Damond was barefoot and wearing pajamas. Noor had been hired on a “fast track program” of affirmative action hiring. It took EIGHT MONTHS for charges to be laid. The murder took place in 2017, Noor was free on bail until the 2019 conviction, he was sentenced to 12 years. He will probably leave prison in 2027.

    This Israeli Prof. Eidelberg of Jerusalem thinks that that only the Chosen are a real nation. All other nations are “invented”.

    He thinks that the US is almost Chosen. Why? It is “exceptional” because the Puritans wrote laws that were Noahide like.

    https://stopnoahidelaw.blogspot.com/2019/03/jewish-professor-all-non-jewish-nations.html

    What is remarkable is that America is the only nation that was founded precisely on the Noahide laws, as one may readily confirm in the writings of the Puritans and in the legislation of colonial America, especially New England. Therein is the source of American Exceptionalism.

    Here is his bio. His thinking is exactly what our Congress thinks and acts like with its Israel uber alles mania. Our Congress doesn’t not care about any other nation on earth since it thinks like this Eidelberg that only Israel is a nation. There is no other “nation” except Israel. The US is almost Chosen seems it worships only Israel and does everything possible for Israel – wars, destroying the US itself, regime changes for pro-Israel regimes, etc.

    He has written several books on American and on Jewish Statesmanship. His magnum opus The Judeo-Scientific Foundations of American Exceptionalism: Today’s Choice for the “Almost Chosen People” is in the process of publication, he lives in Jerusalem. Prof. Eidelberg believes that all nations and ethnic groups are “invented” and are the creations of the fallible will of men, except the “Chosen People”. Eidelberg’s logic is that Judaism is the only religion which was founded as both a faith and a nation (Israel); it is because of this supposedly superior brainchilld that the non-Jews of the earth “hate the Jewish people”.

    Suppose you let it all hang out. Really run a campaign on tbe whole Jewish Problem. Pull no punches. The problem has always been with pulling punches.. Never apologize. It’s God’s truth. The Jewish Problem is the main source of American failure and the biggest single human source of sll the world’s problems.

    And you’d be running against two people who hide their Jewishness. Biden, for example, was featured on CNN voting in 2004 in the American-engineered election in Iraq, proving his Iraqi descent on the basis of his Iraqi grandfather’s Torah. You have to dig that up on web archives now because the Jew-owned search engines and CNN have buried it.

    Trump is no ordinary crypto-Jew who has surrendered American foreign policy to Israeli interests. His connection with the satanic side comes out from his intimate snd long association with Epstein.

    Once you sre willing to take the Jewish Problem head on, a world of possibility opens up. But you need to have a faction of tbe CIA and military with you.

  47. Mr Giraldi is wrong about Iran. The Big Satan has tried repeatedly for 40 years and not succeeded. After Solemani’s murder, Iran demonstrated it missile capabilities by hitting the US bases and now the US knows it faces a real adversary that can cause major damage to its stooges in the Persian Gulf and bestest friend.
    The five oil tankers were left unmolested and reached Venezuela without incident after Iran warned the US that any interference would be considered as piracy on the high seas and it would retaliate in the Persian Gulf.
    The bully needs to find another victim to throw against the wall to show its might; this bravado will not work with Iran.

  48. Sean says:

    Historically, war waits until re-election as with Wilson and Roosevelt. There is a formalisation of existing US understandings with Israel, but it has just been rapped over the knuckles for links to China;r the US is a jealous god. Israel’s true position has not improved though it has more explicit guarantees from America (fat lot of good that did Ukraine)

    On Iran, which terrain-wise is too big and difficult to invade, withall a huge reserve army that will actually fight, the US strategy is economic blockade along with isolating it from the West. Hence targeting the JCPOA, which was enabling Iran to access the West.

    So, nothing is going to happen, and even if Iran gets provoked into a rash use of military force, that will not start a war. Trump tacks away from hostilities when Iran gets tough. Remember it was he did absolutely nothing in response to the Iranian strike on the Saudi oil refinery, which was a casus belli if he wanted one. He also surprised the Iranian leadership by appearing willing to negotiate at a UN assembly they were at.

    He did order the assassination of Iran’s Chuck Norris, but that was in response to Soleimani’s proxy force assailing an American embassy, something that resonated with Trump’s long time sensitivity to America being slighted. The Brendan Simms /Charlie Laderman book about Trump’s worldview makes clear that he was aghast at the Iranian hostage crisis. Soleimani himself can hardly have been unaware of that episode and the sensitivity it caused in the US, yet he clearly did not understand the reaction it would provoke. Iran’s miscalculations have a lot to do with the position they find themselves in.

    With the demonstrations hurting Trump’s authority, I do not see any possibility of him risking reigniting another round of them by war with Iran. If Iran wants to do something kinetic, this is the time because Trump could not go to war, the demonstrations would be back on a scale that would be be unmanageable.

    (Rather a lot of typos.)

  49. As usual, U.S. interests are subordinated to those of Israel, even in a statement that is essentially incoherent. U.N. inspectors believe that Iran might currently have enough enriched uranium in its stockpile to construct one small bomb, but the infrastructure is lacking and it would be a long and laborious process to actually come up with anything usable, so the whole Pompeo pretext is little more than a fabrication.

    Of course it’s a fabrication. The statement is based on the presumption that Iran wants nuclear weapons, despite both Supreme Leaders, since the revolution, having issued fatwas prohibiting Iran from having them.
    As I have previously posted, the JCPOA was an economic windfall for the US and Israel. It took Iran our of the billion dollar medical radio-pharmaceutical market. Iran’s real “sin” is that it began trading/selling oil in something other than US dollars. The pattern is pretty clear, whether Venezuela, Iraq or Libya, that is a no no. Israel piggybacks on that, because Persia/Iran has a history of powerful military forces. That stands in the way of Eretz Yisroel.

    Fascism is a word like Hitler. It is a blank slate that people project onto. If you asked people to define Fascism they wouldn’t be able to give you an answer.

    Absolutely.

    In that regard, Andrew Joyce’s piece on Jews who produce pop-culture propaganda about fascism needs a supplement; a scholarly but well-crafted explanation of Fascism as 20th century Italians conceived it.

    Giraldi wrote about Ledeen’s daughter recently, and in the course of researching that rat bastard I learned that Michael Ledeen’s mentor-colleague in Italy was Renzo deFelice, who wrote a 4-volume biography of Mussolini, said to be the “definitive” work. deFelice, Jewish, was born in Rieti, Italy in 1929; his book actually treats Mussolini and Fascism rather favorably. (Jabotinsky was enamored of Italian culture and of Mussolini, especially Il Duce’s “muscularity”) Based on deFelice’s writings, for decades after the war Jews considered Italians the “good” people contra “bad” Germans.

    That began to change as the all-purpose “Germans done it” phenomenon wore away and other Jewish writers began to explore the perfidy of ordinary Italians who did not do all they should have done to protect Jews or to resist Germany, with whom Italy had been allied until it wasn’t.

    One quick take-away from this information is that it is still Jews who interpret Mussolini – wartime Italy and Fascism.

    A larger, and increasingly all-consuming thought is that the field of Italian – Fascism – war time history is ripe for deep revisionist exploration.

    https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/137078/jewish/Vav.htm

    The number six also signifies the six hundred thousand Jew­ish men aged 20-60 who left the land of Egypt. It additionally represents the Torah because the word ישראל, Yisrael, is an acronym meaning “יש ששים רבוא אותיות לתורה—There are six hundred thousand letters of the Torah,” and if one letter of the Torah is missing or broken or cracked, G‑d forbid, the entire Torah scroll is declared not kosher—unfit to be read. Similarly, if one Jew strays from the path, or is missing or defiled, the entire Jewish nation is likewise lacking or defiled. We are rendered incomplete.

    The idea that our system of law is based on the Ten Commandments is an error that originated in modern times with William Blackstone, the famed 18th century British jurist and author of the influential “Commentaries.”

    Our own John Adams successfully demolished Blackstone’s argument over two centuries ago. Adams documented that our legal system derives from Roman law and its successor, English common law. The latter is a product of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms that flourished in Britain after the Roman withdrawal.

    Christianity had been introduced into Roman Britain but had never been more than a marginal cult there. It would not become the dominant religion until long after the Saxon era. Its ethic therefore had no part in the shaping of the fundamentals of our system of justice.

    Our civic heritage owes a good deal more to classical paganism than it does to Christianity. The Founders were well-versed in classical studies, which was the heart of an Anglo-American gentleman’s education. They patterned their new republic on the checks-and-balances system of the Roman Republic. Our first coins proudly depicted the bust of “the Goddess Liberty”, resurrecting a coin type of ancient Rome. The bold eagle they placed on the reverse of some of these numismatic treasures is also the bird which tradition held sacred to Jupiter, the protector of the Roman state; on others, they depicted the laurel wreath, sacred to Apollo. On all, Liberty wears the pileus, or liberty cap, the Roman symbol of emancipation from slavery.

    Our national motto “Annuit Coeptis” (He has favored [our] undertakings), which appears on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, alludes to line 625 of Virgil’s book IX of the Aeneid, “Juppiter omnipotes audacibus annue coeptis” (All-powerful Jupiter favor [my] daring undertakings). Striking down a king whose authority to rule came directly from the Christian god might qualify as a “daring undertaking”, as does founding a new state based on what John Adams called “the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretence of miracle or mystery”, rather than on God’s revealed Word.

    Yes, it is quite an inexplicable oversight that our supposedly pious Christian forebears neglected to place a bust of the Savior, or his symbol, the cross, on the coins which first proclaimed our national identity to the world. In the same spirit, when Ben Franklin was asked why the 1787 Constitution contained no reference to god, he is said to have replied, with a smile, “we forgot.”

    German Official Leaks Report Denouncing Corona as ‘A Global False Alarm’
    June 2, 2020 renegade 3 Comments
    By Daniele Pozzati

    [MORE]

    Germany’s federal government and mainstream media are engaged in damage control after a report that challenges the established Corona narrative leaked from the interior ministry.

    Some of the report key passages are:

    The dangerousness of Covid-19 was overestimated: probably at no point did the danger posed by the new virus go beyond the normal level.
    The people who die from Corona are essentially those who would statistically die this year, because they have reached the end of their lives and their weakened bodies can no longer cope with any random everyday stress (including the approximately 150 viruses currently in circulation).
    Worldwide, within a quarter of a year, there has been no more than 250,000 deaths from Covid-19, compared to 1.5 million deaths [25,100 in Germany] during the influenza wave 2017/18.
    The danger is obviously no greater than that of many other viruses. There is no evidence that this was more than a false alarm.
    A reproach could go along these lines: During the Corona crisis the State has proved itself as one of the biggest producers of Fake News.

    So far, so bad. But it gets worse.

    The report focuses on the “manifold and heavy consequences of the Corona measures” and warns that these are “grave”.

    More people are dying because of state-imposed Corona-measures than they are being killed by the virus.

    The reason is a scandal in the making:

    A Corona-focused German healthcare system is postponing life-saving surgery and delaying or reducing treatment for non-Corona patients.
    Berlin in Denial Mode. The scientists fight back.

    Initially, the government tried to dismiss the report as “the work of one employee”, and its contents as “his own opinion” – while the journalists closed ranks, no questions asked, with the politicians.

    But the 93-pages report titled “Analysis of the Crisis Management” has been drafted by a scientific panel appointed by the interior ministry and composed by external medical experts from several German universities.

    The report was the initiative of a department of the interior ministry called Unit KM4 and in charge with the “Protection of critical infrastructures”.

    This is also where the German official turned whistleblower, Stephen Kohn, work(ed), and from where he leaked it to the media.

    The authors of the report issued a joint press release already on Mai 11th, berating the government for ignoring expert advise, and asking for the interior minister to officially comment upon the experts joint statement:

    “Therapeutic and preventive measures should never bring more harm than the illness itself. Their aim should be to protect the risk groups, without endegearing the availibilty of medical care and the health of the whole population, as it is unfortunately occurring”

    “We in the scientific and medical praxis are experiencing the secondary damages of the Corona-measures on our patients on a daily basis.”

    “We therefore ask the Federal Ministry of the Interior, to comment upon our press release, and we hope for a pertinent discussion regarding the [Corona] measures, one that leads to the best possible solution for the whole population”

    At the time of writing, the German government had yet to react.

    But the facts are – sadly – vindicating the medical experts’ worries.

    On Mai 23 the German newspaper Das Bild titled: “Dramatic consequences of the Corona-Measures: 52,000 Cancer Ops delayed.”

    Inside, a leading medical doctor warns that “we will feel the side-effects of the Corona crisis for years”.
    Shooting the Whistleblower. Ignoring the Message.

    As Der Spiegel reported on Mai 15th: “Stephen Kohn [the whistleblower] has since been suspended from duty. He was advised to obtain a lawyer and his work laptop was confiscated.”

    Kohn had originally leaked the report on May 9th to the liberal-conservative magazine Tichys Einblick one of Germany’s most popular alternative media outlets.

    News of the report went mainstream in Germany during the second week of Mai – but already in the third week media and politicians alike stopped discussing the issue by refusing to comment upon it.

    Emblematic was the approach taken by Günter Krings, the representative for Interior Minister Horst Seehofer – the whistleblower’s boss:

    Asked it he would treat the document seriously, Krings replied:

    “If you start analyzing papers like that, then pretty soon you’ll be inviting the guys with the tin foil hats to parliamentary hearings.”

    Men in tin foil hats – Aluhut in German – is a term used to describe people who believe in conspiracy theories.

    Indeed one article by Der Spiegel adressing the Corona protest movement and the consequences of the leaked report contained the word “conspiracy” no fewer than 17 times!

    And no discussions of the issues raised by the report itself.

    Outside Germany the news has virtually gone unreported.
    The Protest Movement – or “Corona-Rebellen”.

    Germans begun demonstrating against Lockdowns as early as April.

    And thousands of citizens keep showing up at demos every week-end, even as the government is easing the restrictions.

    The demos are not merely against restrictions, which have actually been comparatively mild compared to many other Western countries.

    The demos question the entire Corona Narrative, and even more its principals, especially the role Bill Gates is playing, as the WHO second biggest donor (the first one since Trump suspended U.S. contribution).

    Indeed the biggest such demos took place in Stuttgart on May 9th, where tens of thousands people assempled to say no – to the NWO.

    Germans are saying no to any orwellian solution the government might one day impose out of a questionable “emergency status”, from mass surveillance Apps to mandatory vaccinations.

    The leaked report has proved their fears to be well founded.

    At least as far as the fake nature of the “Corona pandemic” is concerned.

    The rest might soon follow.

    I see an alleged headcount of Jewish personnel in a spreadsheet that someone put together…

    I think the original source for this info is taken from the Executive Services Directorate Washington Headquarters Services website:

    The data is from 2012, so it is admittedly not up-to-date.

    The original tweet referenced the Forward article, 26 Billion Bucks: The Jewish Charity Industry Uncovered.

    Here’s the relevant excerpt:

    Now, the Forward has identified and reviewed tax documents filed by more than 3,600 Jewish organizations in the most comprehensive survey ever of the financial workings of this Jewish tax-exempt ecosystem.

    More than likely, Jacob had nothing to do with what they attribute to him. We should note that such stories are necessary to maintain the myth of Israel’s “entitlement.”

    They seem to forget that, according to the text they hold to be God’s Inerrant Word, the disappearance of the Ark of the Covenant — the single most sacred relic of Israel — remains, to this day, entirely inexplicable.

    Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple and every record of Scripture along with it, thereafter making the use of Hebrew a capital offense. Centuries later, Ezra purports to restore it all verbatim by the will of God, while after said restoration, Jeremiah explicitly informs us that Israel doesn’t have the Law with it.

    It isn’t so much by its apparent contradiction or absurdity that the record betrays their character. Rather, the history — and what it omits — is all there in plain view, the quintessential purloined letter.
