5G – Countries that are Investigating or Banning 5G Networks

Getting serious health issues into the public view. 

5G radiation is such a current danger but Facebook posting is unreliable.

After posting my own blog article:-


in which, amongst many other links and a great deal of information, were 14 relating to countries other than Australia, revealing their serious misgivings and challenges to the safety claims made by the telecom promoters.
As Australia is blindly forging ahead with 5G installations and telcom equipment sales are under way, there is need for a greater public promotion of the real issues.

So, I now reveal those links here:

Misuse of PCR Tests Worst Crime against Humanity Ever!


For this video to run, you may possibly have to log into this excellent new platform, “brandnewtube”. Worthwhile if you hunger for truth!

Much conflict between “mainstream’s reality” and scientifically valid reality.  Acceptance and belief should be based on multiple sources, genuine qualified persons remote from personal agendas, and logical evidence.

The Covid-19 Roadmap: Towards Global Economic Chaos and Societal Destruction

While these flawed official statistics used to “measure” the spread of the virus are meaningless, they have nonetheless been used to support the ongoing fear and disinformation campaign.

Global Research, October 13, 2020

It is now confirmed beyond doubt that the Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction Test (RT-PCR) used to estimate COVID-19 positive cases is meaningless. It cannot detect or identify the virus. What it detects are particles or fragments of numerous viruses including the common cold (corona beta) and seasonal influenza (viruses A and B)

PCR- Positive does not imply Covid-19 Positive. The statistics derived from the PCR test do not measure “confirmed cases”. The PCR Test does not provide the statistics required (by policy-makers and national health authorities) to assess the number of people infected.

While these flawed official statistics used to  “measure” the spread of the viral infection are meaningless, they have nonetheless been used to support the ongoing fear and disinformation campaign.

The PCR-test is the smoking gun. Why?

Because the PCR Test is faulty and invalid as a means of identifying the spread of the virus, which means that ALL MAJOR DECISIONS taken by the WHO and national governments since late January 2020 (supported by faulty statistics) are invalid.  Moreover, official reports including the WHO confirm that Covid-19 is not a killer virus, it has features similar to seasonal influenza.

The purpose off this article is to examine how these far-reaching decisions, invariably based on lies and faulty statistics, have contributed to a state of economic, social and political chaos Worldwide, leading up to the March 11, 2020 lockdown and closure of 190 national economies of UN member states. Only three countries including Belarus, Nicaragua and Sweden refused to close down their national economy.

The closure of national economies was presented as a means to confronting the “Killer Virus” and “Saving Lives”. Amply documented, its impacts have led to mass unemployment and poverty Worldwide.

The Roadmap towards Economic Chaos and Societal Destruction

October 18, 2019. 201 Pandemic Simulation Exercise

The coronavirus was initially named 2019-nCoV by the WHO, the same name as that adopted at the October 18, 2019 201 Simulation exercise under the auspices of the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health, Centre for Heath Security (an event sponsored by the Gates Foundation and World Economic Forum).(Event 201)

January 7, 2020: The Chinese authorities “identified a new type of virus” which (according to official reports) was isolated  on January 7, 2020.

January 20-24:  World Economic Forum Meetings at Davos. The Role of Powerful Financial Interests 

Dominant financial interests, billionaire foundations and international financial institutions played a key role in launching the WHO Public Health Emergency (PHEIC). The decision was not taken by the WHO.

In the week preceding this historic WHO decision. The PHEIC was the object of “consultations” at the World Economic Forum (WEF), Davos (January 21-24). The WHO Director General Dr. Tedros was present at Davos. Were these consultations instrumental in influencing the WHO’s historic decision on January 30th.

Was there a Conflict of Interest as defined by the WHO? The WHO’s largest donor is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which together with the WEF and CEPI had already announced in Davos the development of a Covid-19 vaccine prior to the historic January 30th launching of the PHEIC.

January 28, 2020:  The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed that the novela corona virus had been isolated. To this date, the process of identification of the virus has not been made public.

5G – Absolutely Essential Health Warnings.

[Edited 14th October 2020]

A theme shift, sorely needed, but yet another threat to our welfare. Will they ever end? Another debatable issue, but we start with the conclusion that 5G represents a threat to our health and now go on to  support the conclusion.

As usual, authorities are hedging and lying about safety testing and getting away with it!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5G

In telecommunications, 5G is the fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks, which cellular phone companies began deploying worldwide in 2019, and is the planned successor to the 4G networks which provide connectivity to most current cellphones.[1] Like its predecessors, 5G networks are cellular networks, in which the service area is divided into small geographical areas called cells. All 5G wireless devices in a cell are connected to the Internet and telephone network by radio waves through a local antenna in the cell. The main advantage of the new networks is that they will have greater bandwidth, giving higher download speeds,[1] eventually up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbit/s).[2] Due to the increased bandwidth, it is expected that the new networks will not just serve cellphones like existing cellular networks, but also be used as general internet service providers for laptops and desktop computers, competing with existing ISPs such as cable internet, and also will make possible new applications in internet of things (IoT) and machine to machine areas. Current 4G cellphones will not be able to use the new networks, which will require new 5G enabled wireless devices.

The concern is for radiation poisoning from towers and personal devices using these higher frequencies, at very least potentially harmful, at worst seriously harmful.

One relevant aspect is that the respiratory and blood diseases currently blamed on the Covid-19 virus, may be due to another, or other causes. Whereby cases being counted as Covid cases to justify draconian personal restrictions and freedom losses become extremely questionable!

So, looking at published information, we learn:

From Reference”1″ –

What is the evidence of the harm caused by radiofrequency radiation?

There are thousands of archival biomedical research papers, published in peer-reviewed journals, that have shown that radiofrequency radiation is harmful to the body in one way or another.  These have been collected and reviewed in a number of summary documents.  Here are just two examples:  (1) BioInitiative 2012, draws on about 1800 publications (https://bioinitiative.org/); (2) EUROPAEM EMF Guideline 2016 for the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of EMF-Related Health Problems and Illnesses, draws on 308 references (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27454111). (“EMF” stands for electromagnetic fields, a term inclusive of radiofrequency radiation.)

In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization classified radiofrequency radiation as a Group 2B Human Carcinogen (“possibly carcinogenic”), naming explicitly “wireless phone” radiation (cellular radiation), based on the increased risk for glioma.  Glioma is a malignant type of brain cancer that is usually fatal.  It most recently took the life of Senator John McCain and Beau Biden, the son of Vice President Joe Biden.  (https://www.iarc.fr/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/pr208_E.pdf)

In 2018, a massive study by the National Toxicology Program at the National Institutes of Health linked cellular radiofrequency radiation (RFR) to cancer of the nerves of the heart (schwannomas), to cancer of the brain (glioma), and to multiple other health effects in test animals.  (https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/results/areas/cellphones/index.html).

From Reference “2”:

5G, on the other hand, promises a technological revolution where exponentially expanding wireless transmission speeds would connect billions of devices into an internet-of-things, that would span the world over. This is presented as a huge consumer win (e.g. faster streaming) but ignores other uses for this network which include relentless real-time surveillance of all human behavior and even potential weaponization. The fact that there are zero independent safety studies showing the 5G network’s intended use of milimeter wave frequencies is overlooked, much like the fact that the CDC immunization schedule contains not a single vaccine that has been tested for safety and efficacy in a double-blind, randomized, trial using a true saline placebo; much less the entire schedule, which contains literally thousands of antigens, in a toxicological cocktail of complexity it would be technically near impossible to assess accurately for safety, both for acute and especially chronic adverse outcomes, such as autoimmunity disease, which in the case of the adverse effects of vaccine is far more common than most suspect.

In 2018, a massive study by the National Toxicology Program at the National Institutes of Health linked cellular radiofrequency radiation (RFR) to cancer of the nerves of the heart (schwannomas), to cancer of the brain (glioma), and to multiple other health effects in test animals.  (https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/results/areas/cellphones/index.html)

In 2015 and continuing, 247 scientists from 42 nations signed an appeal to the United Nations, described below.  These scientists have “published peer-reviewed papers on the biological or health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields” (which are inclusive of radiofrequency radiation).

“Address the global public health concerns related to exposure to cell phones, power lines, electrical appliances, wireless devices, wireless utility meters and wireless infrastructure in residential homes, schools, communities and businesses.”  (https://www.emfscientist.org/)

For more information on the health effects of radiofrequency radiation, please see the website of the Environmental Health Trust, especially the Science tab.  (https://ehtrust.org/)

What scientific studies, from impartial sources, can the providers of 5G identify that prove that 5G has NO adverse health effects on humans?  The burden of proof is on the providers.

When questioned by U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal in a hearing before the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee (February, 7, 2019), the representatives of industry could name no existing studies and none in progress.  (Story:  https://www.blumenthal.senate.gov/newsroom/press/release/at-senate-commerce-hearing-blumenthal-raises-concerns-on-5g-wireless-technologys-potential-health-risks; Video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsil3VQE5K4)

From Reference “3”:

5G trials have already commenced in Australia, with each telecommunications carrier working with mobile equipment suppliers in testing the application and limits of the technology.

From Reference “4”:

DESPITE their admitted lack of the required scientific expertise, Mornington Peninsula Shire officers have been ordered to investigate alleged health issues surrounding the 5G telecommunications network.

The councillors’ decision to investigate what is essentially a federal government responsibility was made in response to 700-signature petition expressing concerns that the introduction of the 5G technology could endanger health.

Fears of health risks from 5G have sparked street protests in Australia, including Melbourne, where marches have often been combined with those opposing vaccines.

Overseas, demonstrators have set fire to 5G telecommunications towers.

The petition was received in January and at that stage councillors instructed officers to arrange a meeting in February between councillors and the petition’s organisers.

However, the meeting did not happen, councillors were not updated and then came the state of emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cr Antonella Celi told The News that the government needed to ensure that information used in its 5G campaign was “not  based on antiquated information from [the World Health Organisation] and ARPANSA  who have not yet undertaken the research into the higher frequency of the 5G network required for the ‘internet of things’ and the potential impacts on human health and the environment”.

From reference “5”:

In 2019, telecom executives gave U.S. congressional testimony that they have NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe. The majority of scientists worldwide are opposed to deployment until studies show that it’s safe.

Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit installation as well as issue moratoriums (see 1234567891011, 121314). Legislators in Hawaii County recently introduced a resolution to stop 5G deployment until studies show it’s safe. Now a bill has been introduced at the state level to do the same!

American opposition to 5G technology is not limited to biological and environmental risks (see 12). Federal agencies warn that it can threaten national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy. Engineers have also warned that 5G can overheat base stations. 5G base stations also use 2-3X more energy to operate than 4G base stations.

Activist Post reports regularly about 5G and other unsafe technology. For more information visit our archives and the following websites.

From Reference “6”:

“The USSR experimented on humans and animals with 5G in 1977, 1972 and 1997. A proper military experiment. The humans suffered metabolic problems, ie everything started to fall apart, blood problems, immune system dysfunction, severe medical and neurological problems. With animals, since they were able to dissect them, they found the bone marrow was suffering (which produces the immune system), respiration damaged, enzyme activity damaged, nuclear dna damaged, and the total exposure time was only 15 hours over 60 days. Roughly 15 minutes a day and the levels were not high. Not as high as you are going to get in a classroom.” …. Dr Barrie Trower

Lastly Dr Trower has many other interviews on Youtube that will give you insight into how wi-fi is affecting us already. Particularly our children. 5G he illustrates is a military grade weapon they used for crowd control. Fact. (Here is a 14 minute clip with the essentials from him). EWR

From Reference “7”:

The “5G Strategy,” approved on May 2, 2020, stated that

“the Defense Department must develop and employ new concepts of operation that use the ubiquitous connectivity that 5G capabilities offer to increase the effectiveness, resilience, speed, and lethality of our Forces.

The Pentagon is already experimenting military applications of this technology in five air, naval and land forces bases: Hill (Utah), Nellis (Nevada), San Diego (California), Albany (Georgia), Lewis-McChord (Washington), Dr. Joseph Evans, technical director for 5G at the Department of Defense, in a press conference on June 3 confirmed.

He then announced that 5G military applications will soon be tested in seven other bases: Norfolk (Virginia), Pearl Harbor-Hickam (Hawaii), San Antonio (Texas), Fort Irwin (California), Fort Hood (Texas), Camp Pendleton (California) and Tinker (Oklahoma).

Experts predict that 5G will play a decisive role in the development of hypersonic weapons, including nuclear warheads: huge amounts of data must be collected, processed and transmitted very quickly to guide them on variable trajectories, escaping interceptor missiles. The same data collection is necessary to activate the defenses in the event of an attack with such weapons, relying on automatic systems.

NZ & Covid: Of 22 stated deaths, 4 tested NEG, one NOT tested; all aged 60-90, 8 with underlying conditions

So none of the 22 may have actually died from the Covid virus itself?

Rangitikei Environmental Health Watch

All the lockdown, the military involvement, the drama, the suicides, the fear of being pulled from your family & detained in a quarantine/detention center … are they really justified with 17 deaths? Note from the OI request that the 5 who weren’t positive, were assumed covid. Read the detail.

Investigation Of WHO For Faking Coronavirus Pandemic

Belgium Health Experts Demand Investigation Of WHO For Faking Coronavirus Pandemic

Medical Doctors and Health Professionals of Belgium have written an open letter to authorities demanding the investigation of WHO for creating coronavirus infodemic faking the pandemic. The following letter has made an impact on public health authorities not only in Belgium but around the world. The text could pertain to any case in which states locked down their citizens rather than allow people freedom and permit medical professionals to bear the primary job of disease mitigation.

When WHO Faked a Pandemic

Earlier, it was revealed that a Pornstar and a Sci-Fi Writer influenced WHO policies on Hydroxychloroquine with fake data. An obscure US healthcare analytics company has come under sharp scrutiny for the integrity of its key studies that were published in some of the world’s most prestigious medical journals. World Health Organization and several national governments changed their COVID-19 policies and treatment based on the faulty data provided by the company with a pornstar and a sci-fi writer on their payroll.

An exclusive report by GreatGameIndia revealed how in 2009 WHO prematurely declared ‘swine flu’ a pandemic which resulted in a surge of vaccine orders. The rich and affluent nations were quick to purchase the vaccines for their people. Ironically, most deaths occurred not in Europe but in Africa and Southeast Asia.

In his controversial book renowned author Stuart Blume discloses that many of the most influential advisers, at both World Health Organisation (WHO) and national levels, are paid consultants to the vaccine industry raising a very serious question – that the WHO might be working for the vaccine industry’s interests and not the people – the reason why 10 years ago WHO faked a pandemic.


We, Belgian doctors and health professionals, wish to express our serious concern about the evolution of the situation in the recent months surrounding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We call on politicians to be independently and critically informed in the decision-making process and in the compulsory implementation of corona-measures. We ask for an open debate, where all experts are represented without any form of censorship. After the initial panic surrounding covid-19, the objective facts now show a completely different picture – there is no medical justification for any emergency policy anymore.

“Global Emergency created by the unprecedented use of State Compulsion”

From October 1-4, 2020, the American Institute for Economic Research hosted a remarkable meeting of top epidemiologists, economists, and journalists, to discuss the global emergency created by the unprecedented use of state compulsion in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic. The result is The Great Barrington Declaration, which urges a “Focused Protection” strategy.

After a brief explanation of the strategy, and a discussion of the astonishing costs of lockdown, the Declaration concludes: “Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume.”

The American Institute for Economic Research was founded in 1933 in the midst of an economic crisis in the United States. Its purpose was and is to research and promulgate evidence-based solutions to social and economic problems, with a particular focus on the importance of functioning markets. The crisis of the policy response to Covid-19 drew AIER’s close attention from late January 2020 and following. The hosting of this crucial meeting was in the interest of backing the best science, promoting essential human rights, and reviving a focus on the common good.

Facts being known,  there are significant numbers of qualified experts disagreeing with the W.H.O and other agenderised medical recommendations, some of which seem to be created without any medical support at all.

When China Sneezes: From the Coronavirus Lockdown to the Global Politico-Economic Crisis

A book worthy of promoting.  Both the Editor and the contents. A wealth of  vitally important information!
AN EXTRACT from the review should prove tempting:

“Geopolitical analyst Peter Koenig dares shine a bright light on a likely nefarious side to the current crisis. He cites the 2010 Rockefeller Report uncannily spelling out a program that starts in 2020 with a corona pandemic. It would start in China and in no time, it would engulf the entire globe. That initial phase is called ‘The Lockstep Scenario.’

He estimates the “purported” pandemic will devastate vast swathes of the global economy to give rise to a monstrous “New or One World Order” featuring fully-digitized human lives. This not-too-far digitalized future was fortuitously foreseen by Agenda ID2020, a pet project of vaccine “philanthropist” and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. A quite similar scenario was the central theme of the Event 201 simulation held October 2019 in New York, sponsored by Gates’ foundation, the Johns Hopkins Institute for Health, and the World Economic Forum plutocrats’ club. W.H.O., World Bank, UNICEF, the U.S. and the Chinese CDCs (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) were among Event 201’s stellar participants.”

These days of the COVID-19 global crisis, I’m sure you’ve often felt being lied to.

Tens of millions of Filipinos know the feeling. Fudged updates on COVID-19 stats, denials of corruption and treason in high places, trolls actively spreading outright deceits on social media, even a blackout on the true state of President Duterte’s health—this utterly bad state of the flow of information was even compounded by the closure of ABS-CBN, a major Philippine broadcast network that’s one of Southeast Asia’s biggest media outfits, highlighting the Philippine government’s ongoing attack on press freedom.

Can a quo warranto petition be filed against ABS-CBN?

Lies and deceits pervade across the globe, in fact. Social media has been riding roughshod with most active gatekeeping across the board in all the major platforms under the current W.H.O.-declared global pandemic. In the guise of stamping out misinformation and disinformation, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube rightfully took down what may be deemed alt-right and fascistic accounts and posts. But these digital behemoths sadly went far beyond that. Hand in hand with prime search engines like Google, they manipulated search and feed algorithms to extremely marginalize accounts and posts of alternative media outfits dutifully reporting on anomalies and trends that do not go along with the establishment narrative and agenda. Victims include independent media as Truthout.org, Mint Press News, Global Research, Information Clearing House, Whatreallyhappened.com, Popular Resistance, Telesur, and RT (Russia Today); authors like Mark Crispin Miller, Mark Taliano, Dr V.A. Shiva Ayyudarai and Pepe Escobar; and numerous alternative health websites.

The result? Humanity is bamboozled with far more Sturm und Drang signifying nothing; to paraphrase the American rock musician Jackson Browne, the more you watch, read and listen, the less you know.

But history doesn’t provide problems without the solutions. Notwithstanding unprecedented establishment efforts to hijack the flow of information, forces are surely emerging and persevering to rise above the din of deceptions. When China Sneezes: From the Coronavirus Lockdown to the Global Politico-Eonomic Crisis, a newly-released compendium of COVID-19-related essays from Clarity Press and edited by feisty former U.S. congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, is one major effort from what can be called a broad global COVID-19 Truth, Freedom and Health Movement.

Book’s editor a truthseeking veteran

The book’s editor is no stranger to truthseeking. As a Democrat member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Georgia in 2002, McKinney dared call early for a complete investigation into the terrorist attacks of 9/11 of 2001 on U.S. soil, including whether then President George W. Bush and other U.S. officials got advance warnings of the terrorist acts and failed to prevent them. Hers was a solitary voice in the U.S. Congress calling for the inquiry. She raised the call just less than 7 months after 9/11 when the American and global publics were still held in thrall by the government’s official conspiracy theory that Osama bin Laden and 19 Muslim hijackers of al-Qaeda were solely behind the attacks. For being a forthright truthseeker, McKinney was widely pilloried and ridiculed in mainstream U.S. media by government apologists. She would later be a victim of bipartisan fraud to steal her 6th successive term in office.

That obviously has not stopped her from her activist advocacy for human rights, racial equality, and global peace. She would be the Green Party Candidate for U.S. President in 2008, and be editor of three hard-hitting books, including When China Sneezes.

Eerie parallels between COVID-19 and 9/11

Likewise, the 9/11 truth movement she advocated then has since surpassed much ridicule, with groups like the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth credibly exposing the anomalous demolition of WTC7, the third New York tower that fell on 9/11 in similar fashion as the Twin Towers but was not hit by any of the hijacked planes.

To be honest about it, the emergence of COVID-19 this year has compelling, if eerie parallels to 9/11 of 2001. Both were unprecedented events that have impacted the entire world and caught the global public by surprise. Both have produced an unexpectedly large number of casualties. Both ushered in global economic downturns. Both events served as pretexts to impose repressive measures attacking broadly-accepted civil liberties. Both became opportunities for well-entrenched global economic interests to make superprofit bonanzas. And both watershed events have raised serious questions pointing to likely outstanding anomalies and—yes—real conspiracies that humanity deserves to know the answers to.

Cynthia McKinney - Wikipedia

At the book’s outset, McKinney warns the reader “to buckle your seatbelt, because by the time you’ve completed these pages, your outlook on health, wealth, and global governance won’t be the same.”

And on this, the book does not disappoint. McKinney has successfully culled contributions from resource persons delving deeply into various dimensions of the current global health and politico-economic crisis.

SARS-CoV-2’s biodefense lab origins?

Part 1 immediately takes us to the jugular as Jeff J. Brown, curator of the Bioweapon Truth Commission Global Online Library, examines the COVID-19 disease itself and the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes it, in an easy-to-understand approach. He makes a solid contribution to a long-overdue comprehensive inquiry into the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by sharing fiercely-suppressed scientific studies that reveal the virus has curious features that could not have been the result of natural “evolution”. Yes, the virus is far more likely to have originated in a “biodefense” (the establishment’s Orwellian term for biowarfare) lab.

Notwithstanding the emerging fact-based conclusion that the virus causing COVID-19 was a likely result of a “gain-of-function” biolab op, Brown notes however that this new coronavirus disease doesn’t deserve the pandemic hype, observing the long-trending COVID-19 mortality rate is much lower than that of, say, pneumonia. This trend holds until now in fact: out of a total of 34,656,000 COVID-19 cases all over the world as of October 3, deaths from the disease number 1,028,800. That’s a 2.97% mortality rate, lower than pneumonia’s 5% to 10%, and a far cry from the 10% mortality rate from the (misnamed) Spanish flu of World War I vintage, to which COVID-19 has been curiously but most unfittingly compared at the get-go of the current health crisis.

The hidden story of China’s defeat of COVID-19

Part 2 begins with China-based professor and retired businessman Larry Romanoff explaining the overwhelming victorious Chinese response to the COVID-19 outbreak in detail not widely shared with the rest of the world. The unique social setup of the country lends surprising muscle to how China licked COVID-19, from a public health system given primacy by government to overwhelming national solidarity shown by the Chinese people to lift each other up in times of adversity. Romanoff doesn’t hide the fact mistakes were made in the process, but we all see now the incontrovertible proof of the pudding. Despite being dubbed the epicenter of COVID-19 and pilloried in kneejerk fashion by no less than Donald Trump and his allies in and out of the U.S. that SARS-CoV-2 is a “China virus”, China now stands tall when we’re talking COVID-19. It’s one of a select number of countries certified to have successfully overcome the disease, along with Cuba, Vietnam, Thailand and, yes, that part of China called Taiwan. No new cases have been reported in China for weeks now. Contrast that with Trumpland USA, now the eminent leader in COVID-19 infections, no thanks to a health system that surprisingly unraveled in prompt fashion as deeply broken.

After Romanoff, well-detailed on-the-ground honest accounts on what happened in China at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak are shared by a Chinese citizen and a Nigerian expat, who both chose to be anonymous.

COVID-19’s dark economic side

Part 3 proceeds to the economic dimension of the COVID-19 crisis. Economist Jack Rasmus lays down a bleak prognosis for the U.S. economy ravaged by the coronavirus. The simultaneous crises in health, employment, rent and real estate, childcare, and education spell “an extended, weak and unstable economic recovery—not to be confused with a temporary ‘rebound’ over the summer—that will take years to unfold”, as he describes it.

Economist Michael Hudson shares Rasmus’ take on things getting really bad for the U.S. economy—or more exactly, for the American people, as Hudson reveals that once again, as in 2008, the plutocrat and bankster cronies of the political class will be “saved” by multibillion-dollar bonanza giveaways, to the horrific detriment of Main Street. Hudson argues that a fundamental root of the economic woes plaguing the U.S. is its abandonment of the Levitical model of periodic debt forgiveness and cancellation—the Jubilee tradition found in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.

Geopolitical analyst Peter Koenig dares shine a bright light on a likely nefarious side to the current crisis. He cites the 2010 Rockefeller Report uncannily spelling out

a program that starts in 2020 with a corona pandemic. It would start in China and in no time, it would engulf the entire globe. That initial phase is called ‘The Lockstep Scenario.’

He estimates the “purported” pandemic will devastate vast swathes of the global economy to give rise to a monstrous “New or One World Order” featuring fully-digitized human lives. This not-too-far digitalized future was fortuitously foreseen by Agenda ID2020, a pet project of vaccine “philanthropist” and Microsoft founder Bill Gates. A quite similar scenario was the central theme of the Event 201 simulation held October 2019 in New York, sponsored by Gates’ foundation, the Johns Hopkins Institute for Health, and the World Economic Forum plutocrats’ club. W.H.O., World Bank, UNICEF, the U.S. and the Chinese CDCs (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) were among Event 201’s stellar participants.

And just a month after Event 201, voila!, the widely-known first reports of a new coronavirus disease struck Wuhan in China.

Koenig would proceed to highlight the positive things going for rising world power China, like its putting unique primacy to public banking, and “the Chinese philosophy of nonaggression, of diplomacy to resolve conflicts and of promoting peaceful economic coexistence and development around the globe” as he touts China’s project to develop an “Economy of Peace”. One wonders though how long-running Chinese efforts to ape the U.S. in building a global network of its own military bases—many located far beyond China’s borders—chimes in with these announced intentions.

COVID-19 and the Transnational Capitalist Class (TCC)

Professor William Robinson takes a step further than both Rasmus and Koenig in the bleak part of their prognoses for the future. He writes on how the transnational capitalist class (TCC) ruling the world is fully aware that the global economy “is a ticking time bomb” that just needed “something to light the fuse (and t)hat came in the form of the coronavirus.” This same ruling class is now making use of the current world crisis to push a plan to further “consolidate a global police state” leveling up the repressive measures taken by countries in the wake of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 of 2001, explaining thus:

Global police state refers to three interrelated developments: 1) militarized accumulation, as a means of accumulating capital in the face of stagnation; 2) systems of mass social control and repression to contain the oppressed; and 3) the increasing move towards political systems that can be characterized as twenty-first century fascism and even as totalitarian.

Robinson issues a rallying cry at the end of his piece:

The COVID-19 pandemic marks a before-and-after turning point. We have entered into a period of mounting chaos in the world capitalist system. Short of revolution, we must struggle now to prevent our rulers from turning the crisis and its aftermath into an opportunity for them to resuscitate and deepen the neoliberal order once the dust settles. Our struggle is to push for something along the lines of a global Green New Deal as an interim program while seeking an accumulation of forces for more radical system change. Left and progressive forces must position themselves now to beat back the threat of war and the global police state and to push the coming upheavals in a direction that empowers the global working and popular classes.

Wicked worldwide web of biowarfare

Part 4 of the book finds journalist Whitney Webb rightfully focusing on a fiercely-hidden dimension of the current COVID-19 crisis: the diabolical global biowarfare industry and its horrific history. And then some.

Webb tracked down a vital trail of early disinformation which oh-so-quickly pointed to the Chinese government as being behind COVID-19. That disinfo trail leads to the C.I.A.-trusted Radio Free Asia as well as the Washington Times, among others. She then unveils a wicked worldwide web of bioweaponry overtly and covertly funded by the U.S. Pentagon under various programs prominently featuring U.S.-funded high-security “biodefense” labs at the border of China and Russia, the ubiquitous USAMRIID facility at Fort Detrick in Maryland, U.S. universities, the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, all the way to Big Pharma companies in the thick of the race to produce the first COVID-19 vaccine.

Webb connects these dots to the notorious “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” September 2000 manifesto of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) signed by prominent neoconservatives which openly promoted advanced forms of biowarfare “targeting” specific genotypes to take this abhorrent field of science “from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”

Bridgewater and COVID-19 as economic warfare

Engineer Claudio Peretti bridges the link between biowarfare and economic warfare. He echoes other contributors’ assertions on the urgency to conduct a deep inquiry on how COVID-19 came about and the disease’s likely entanglement with existing biodefense projects.

Peretti’s piece is vital in the COVID-19 investigation for sharing how Bridgewater, a top global hedge fund, may have had most intimate foreknowledge of COVID-19. You see, it was reported in November 2019 that Bridgewater made an unprecedented $1.5-billion options bet that the global economy would suffer a spectacular crash on March 2020.

I don’t know about you, but making a billion-dollar bet in November 2019 on a world crash in four months is certifiably crazy. But Bridgewater’s gamble proved prescient. Too uncomfortably prescient in fact, as virtually no one had an inkling COVID-19 would so drastically disrupt the world economy at that exact month early this year. Drawing on this most anomalous economic act, Peretti points to a far more sinister and malevolent virus than SARS-CoV-2, what he calls the “Finanz-virus”.

Eugenics and hybrid warfare at the heart of COVID-19

The book’s editor, Cynthia McKinney, explores in her own contribution the likely place of eugenics—defined here as “the belief in and the practice of selectively breeding (and sterilizing) human beings for the purpose of creating a ‘Master Race’”—as well as of hybrid warfare—which encompasses employing all overt and covert war technologies short of conventional and nuclear warfare—at the center of the COVID-19 global maelstrom. She lists instructive flashpoints in biowarfare’s long sordid history and cites its use by world powers even when international conventions have explicitly banned it. As one of so many material contributions she raised towards a serious inquiry into COVID-19, McKinney points to a mysterious August 2019 shutdown by the U.S. CDC of the supposedly ultra-safe USAMRIID biolab at Fort Detrick for failing to keep an up-to-date log of all toxins on hand and to ‘implement and maintain containment procedures sufficient to contain select (read: highly dangerous) agents or toxins’. Ominously, Fort Detrick has quietly reopened since.

Biowarfare vs humanity

Part 5 begins with writer Gary D. Barnett focusing on the U.S. as far and away the country with the largest resources deployed for illegal biological and chemical warfare until now. These biowarfare operations have not only targeted foreign countries and their wide swathes of innocent civilian populations. Barnett lists historical incidents of reprehensible biowarfare experimentation victimizing not only U.S. soldiers and employees of the military-industrial complex but even ordinary American civilians.

(We don’t need to plumb too deep in history, in fact. Amid the current COVID-19 crisis last August, U.S. authorities unleashed 750 million genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida without Floridians’ consent.)

Barnett ends with a stirring conclusion:

The insanity of bioweapon research, development, and use largely driven by the U.S., threatens not only every American, but puts everyone on earth at risk of sickness, suffering, and death. Due to these risks all of us are also subject to the prospect of abject slavery. The ongoing agenda of the ruling class is power and control of the entire planet, and bio-warfare against humanity is the tool envisaged to accomplish it.

Fascist dystopia post-COVID-19

Political commentator Helen Buyniski presses on with an encyclopedic citation of measures and events across the globe that point to a clear fascist and corporatist agenda by those at the commanding heights of power justifying lockdown impositions a la medical and economic martial law. Indeed, a real-life dystopian future inimical to humanity firms up the whole picture. She cites the key role of Blackrock, history’s biggest trillion-dollar asset manager, as appointed overseer of what will be the biggest-ever consolidation of wealth of history’s obscenely richest plutocrats amid unparalleled economic devastation across the continents.

Buyniski warns in the end:

Those who lived through 9/11 [of 2001] and saw the destruction it wrought upon the U.S.’ national character can see it happening again on an international scale. It is our duty to warn the world and avert that outcome. One country falling under the thrall of a totalitarian technocratic police state is a tragedy; the entire world falling under an authoritarian global government is a nightmare from which humanity might never wake up.

Rethinking human rights after COVID-19

Amid all the gloom and doom, retired U.N. official Alfred de Zayas rounds out the book with optimism. He boldly recommends a “World Conference on Post-Covid Recovery”. This proposed conference would have as one prime agenda discarding the current “obsolete and artificial division of human rights” that has long perpetuated “a world order that much too often appears to allow injustice” and replacing it with a

functional paradigm that would consider rights in the light of their function within a coherent system—not of competing rights and aspirations, but of interrelated, mutually reinforcing rights which should be applied in their interdependence and understood in the context of a coordinated strategy to serve the ultimate goal of achieving human dignity in all of its manifestations.

Throughout the book, an urgency permeates impelling the reader to do something about what’s happening under the current COVID-19 global crisis. As it should be: Nowhere after World War 2 has humanity been witness to a truly global offensive against truth, health, well-being and freedom for humankind as now.

The further consolidation of 21st-century Global Fascism depicted throughout this collection of thought-provoking essays is a serious matter all denizens of the earth ought to reckon. For presenting us a veritable antidote to widespread misinformation and disinformation, this must-read of a book, its publisher, its editor and contributors deserve its readers’ bountiful gratitude.

Grandefex – Internet Investing – My Experiences

This is a major departure from the usual blog themes, yet it still relates to truth and justice.  It’s very personal, maybe of no interest to most followers, but it may be of use to some.

An admittance of a personal failure, certainly no pinnacle of achievement, a failure to do some research and placing trust in the unknown, misplacing trust actually!  Not a proud moment!

Given a great deal more spare time because of the Covid restrictions, I decided to follow up on what has been a mild curiosity in crypto currency investments. After yet another internet promo on “what the banks don’t want you to know” apparently supported by Bill Gates et al on how to make a lot of money very quickly, I made the required response into the cyber world investment arena.

After clicking on a link and even getting a warning response “Stop – You are making a mistake”, which I concluded was some “banking element” diversion, I became connected to an organization “grandefex.com” and blindly entered into their web by identifying myself and depositing the minimum Euro250 using my bank debit card. The bank dutifully requested confirmation of this transaction but made no further comment. So I became the excited investor of a little over $400aud and was allocated an account manager to assist me in the process.

Imagining that I would be advised how to best invest this princely sum into purchasing some recommended crypto currency, I was disappointed to learn that Grandefex, if it all able to do such a simple task, were in the business of themselves carrying out transactions of the nature of “betting on” various selected ‘assets’, in my case their choice of one or more crypto currencies, direction of movement.

No other choice of involvement was mentioned or suggested.  A request to one account manager [AM] for actually purchasing an amount of currency was met with a negative response.

So, moving on, this took place mid April this year (2020) and I had access to my account details and to trading information in the form of a graphic chart, peripheral information and my actual trading activities as controlled by them.

This is an example of a typical screen, unfortunately at the end of trading, where the equity is a dismal minus Euro17.63.  More details to follow.

When trading was in action, this is the type of information provided:

Moving on again. Equity at E250. (Euros).

First AM  (Account Manager)  John, discusses at length very little except how was I set for finances, what resources I had and how much money did I wish to make? Answer – I simply wanted to “dabble”, like as a hobby.

Each week day there was an increase in my equity of the order approaching E2 which, to me was impressive, as it represented about E7 or 8 per week, a return on E250 amounting to a calculated ~E 375 per year, an enormous 150% per annum, ‘somewhat’ better than bank investment rates, as I was repeatedly reminded by all AM’s.

So life and “profits” progressed steadily and satisfyingly EXCEPT for the barrage of phone calls from AM’s and there were many. Phone calls AND AM’s. Initially, attempts were made with John to intersperse emails in order to achieve better understandings, but that failed because Outlook decide to reject “grandefex” emails, even after listing them as “safe”. (Curious?)

Of course, I cannot do justice here to describing the phone calls, but the gist would be: “You must deposit more money if the system is going to provide real returns”. It is hard to describe the pressure being brought to bear to “deposit more money”.

These email extracts sent by me might convey the general situation:

Hello John. First, my Outlook should no longer be blocking you! Apparently something else is! Second , my investment hopes: My miniscule amount is, as I said, for fun. Therefore no opportunity for Grandefex to ”smile” about. However, it is the required minimum. All I ask is for you to recommend an investment ‘fund’, like what you have used for me to date, whose trading code would be given to me and be one of those displayed on the grandefex website. After that  I can keep an eye on it and only bother you if it looks to be a problem. Current action with my money is encouraging – if it does no worse than averaging plus 1 Euro a day I am smiling! 😊 If it compounds, a big bonus 😊 😊 I appreciate your help ‘tonight’, and hope that one more ‘session’ will allow me to be self operating. Password management required.  A little more understanding of the web page.  No buying or selling, no short-term withdrawals. No more deposits. Just 😊 !  Regards, Ken.

So far in  all our phone conversations, little has been achieved.  I have made clear my desires for a little ‘fun’ play on the “market”, now in progress, and that part is just what I want, thank you! I have tried to make clear that no greater investment is of interest to me. Why is it that my very small requests are not all satisfied? Why is it that you do not accept my word for the “no further investment above the Euro250” limit? Is indeed unfortunate that we have been unable to gain an effective connection except for the phone, which must be costing a fortune. The dialogue itself is seemingly ineffective, however. Perhaps we can use the chat/question window? It is your choice to continue phone calls without achieving anything more, but why ???? Regards, Ken Mc

So the scene is set.

It might be worth mentioning that the Grandefex office was operating out of London, or at least that time zone. Their working hours generally started at about 4am, their time, which corresponds to 3pm in my time zone (Aus. EST). Phone conversations generally were about 6 – 9pm but a couple were after 11pm, my time.

17/4   E250  AM John

19/4 E259.97  AM Mia

23/4 E272    AM John  Email sent, Scary introduction to “Anydesk” where I consent to their control over my PC whilst watching and allowing by not moving my cursor.  Not a relaxing event.

24/4 E273   AM John  Email sent

27/4 E274.55;  thru to 18/5 E294.30  AM Michael

19/5 E295.64;  thru to 18/6 E328.32  AM Silvio

Advised that they had no proof of initial deposit, resubmitted ID and Proof documents. Becoming wary about the company!

19/6 E329.85;  22/6 E331.42  AM Jason

Aggressive talk for more money

E331.48 #11pm EST Aus AM Jason  This where the SHTF, in response to my refusal to deposit more money, the result was extraordinary!

23/6  Next morning  equity E217.01, by 13:00 EST, net profit E114.80 (loss)! Remember, previously equity = PLUS E331

Complained   AM Steven – says can fix Jason’s dummy spit reaction to our phone conversation,  IF I deposited more money!!!!

Complained   AM Kenneth (someone with intelligence, [of course]), promised to fix the debacle, and did so!  (Senior Manager).

30/6 Equity restored E335.75  AM Kenneth. He presumably remained in charge till 24/7 when equity = E353.88,  no one else contacted me until –

27/7 E355.56;  28/7 E357.27 AM Edmond

29/7 E359.04  AM Emily, thru to 3/8 E364.18  Here there was a minor glitch in their records which was rectified quickly.

A request to buy XRP currency was met  with the ridiculous response that I would have to deposit more, even though my equity was E160 greater than my initial investment. SO much bullshit from so many people, I then verbally requested a withdrawal of E100.

4/8  E365.91  AM Simon, advises can withdraw but not buy currency.

No action on withdrawal but equity continued to steadily increase.

17/8  E381.92  AM Natasha advises how I can initiate withdrawal myself. This screen take is taken after the final crash, but it designated at that time, the full equity of E381. It clearly states that I can withdrew up to the full equity amount.

So, on 18/8 an official request for a E100 withdrawal. No response for some time, so another entry was submitted, to be told that there was an existing pending request, so I cancelled the second.

Still no response by 31/8 at which time my equity had risen to E400.30. Reinstated the E100 withdrawal request and urgently complained on their chat line about inaction and a new AM, Frank came on the scene, assuring me that by 15 Sept I could withdraw whatever amount I wanted, and talked me into cancelling the existing documented request.

What a fool I was.

1/9 equity was E402.20

2/9  E329.54;   3/9  E286.68;   4/9  E271.92;   7/9  E277.75;  8/9  E224.42;   at which stage my chat complaints stirred Frank into a phone call at 11:30pm here, saying the “Robot” cannot be stopped until the 15th.

Let me explain a little more about the trading methods as I understand them. Generally, all my trades were manually controlled  by the AM. They would spend a few minutes each week-day creating profits for me as shown above. However they have a computerized system which they switched my account to every working day for the hours they were at work whereby 2 crypto currency accounts were selected for auto trading.  A very small amount of my money was used, displayed on the graphic chart and generally less than E1. When questioned, amongst a great deal of varying rhetoric it seems that a lot more money was being used due to leverage, but still probably only 5 times the displayed amount.

Amazingly, over the preceding period of months, every day this technique produced one of three results – E0.01, 0.00 or 0.01 loss.

No amount of questioning this absurd process resulted in any sensible response nor any change .

However, it seems that, as in that previous crash situation, and now the current one, the automatic, computerized “Robot” was given free reign over my full account amount.

So, the “Robot” that “couldn’t” be stopped till the 15th was in free-fall with my E400 resulting in –   9/9  E195.92;   10/9  E166.19;   11/9  E159.15;  date not recorded, probably the 12th,  E17.83 negative!

My notes strangely became a little disorganized as Frank had the “kindness” to ring and report the need for more money, at which stage I was laughing, probably hysterically. He asked why I was laughing, I think I said “did he think I was stark raving mad to provide more money”.  He, in all seriousness, stated that the account would be closed, to which I agreed seemed appropriate.  (Strangely, to this date, 25/9, the account is still open for access and viewing).

My bank has thankfully cancelled my card account in case of fraudulent attempts to access further funds.

So here we are – that’s off my chest and I have permanent record of this unfortunate, but educational experience. I am considering requesting my bank to action a claim against the organization, but it’s not a heap of money to put them out for.

My heart goes out to any other poor unfortunate person who may well be being fleeced for a lot more.

Fight to Protect Australian Bank Deposits from ‘Bail-in’

Australian Citizens Party

Media Release Wednesday, 23 September 2020

Craig Isherwood‚ National Secretary
PO Box 376‚ COBURG‚ VIC 3058
Phone: 1800 636 432
Email: info@citizensparty.org.au
Website: citizensparty.org.au
Two months to win the fight to protect Australian bank deposits from ‘bail-in’

In a little over two months, on 30 November, the Senate will debate One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts’ Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020. The bill will remove all uncertainty over whether bank regulator APRA could bail in the savings of everyday Australians to prop up a failing bank, the way European authorities confiscated 47.5 per cent of deposits in two banks in Cyprus in 2013. Concerned Australians have two months to convince MPs and Senators to vote for Senator Roberts’ bill and put the security of their bank deposits beyond doubt.

The Citizens Party is this week ramping up its campaign against bail-in for the final two-month push to the 30 November debate. To get as many people involved as possible, we have produced a two-minute social media video advertisement, “Your deposits in the banks are not safe”, which succinctly explains the bail-in threat and urges Australians to sign the bail-in petition and participate in the campaign.

Click here to watch the two-minute video “Your deposits in the banks are not safe”; please forward it to your MP and Senators, and share it widely on social media.

The law is uncertain

The nub of the political fight over bail-in is this: the government insists Senator Roberts’ bill is unnecessary because the law is clear and that bail-ins can’t and won’t happen; however, the Citizens Party, One Nation, and numerous legal, banking and economics experts believe the wording of the law that states certain securities “or any other instrument” can be converted or written off (bailed in) creates uncertainty, which Senator Roberts’ bill will resolve by specifying that “any other instrument” can’t include deposit accounts.

The government’s report of the Senate Economics Legislation Committee’s inquiry into Senator Roberts’ bill re-stated the government’s position that the law is not uncertain (although the complex and misleading legal arguments they relied on demonstrated the opposite—that by definition there is uncertainty). In his dissenting report, however, Senator Roberts made the crucial point that the inquiry identified “no sensible adverse outcome” from passing his bill. “This raises a simple point of logic”, Senator Roberts said. “If the bill does not have any other adverse outcome and seeks simply to reaffirm the meaning of the legislation currently in place, then there is no reason not to pass the bill.”

The objective in the next two months is therefore straightforward. We don’t have to prove to Senators and MPs the law is uncertain; all we need to do is convince them that thousands of Australian bank customers are concerned the law is uncertain, and only Senator Roberts’ bill will reassure the public and start to restore confidence in the banks. The way to do that is to flood all the Senators and MPs with thousands of calls and emails in the next two months.

What you can do

  1. Immediately watch the two-minute video “Your deposits in the banks are not safe” and then email the link to your local federal MP and Senators and share it widely on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. Click here to find contact details for your MP and Senators.
  2. Call the offices of your MP and Senators to ensure they received your email and that they watched the video. Tell them you are concerned about bail-in and they should be too, and the only way they can reassure the public their deposits are secure is by voting for Senator Roberts’ Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020.
  3. If you have not yet signed the Citizens Party’s bail-in petition, below, please click here to sign the petition, and also share to widely on social media.


Hands off our bank deposits—stop ‘bail-in’!


This petition of concerned citizens draws to the attention of the House that:

Australia and the world are facing a new financial crisis, with panicked financial authorities slashing interest rates and trying to stimulate the housing market to save the banks, which are in grave danger from their excessive mortgage lending and reckless and fraudulent lending standards;

Global financial authorities expect Australia to prop up failing banks through “bail-in”—converting bonds and deposits into shares or writing them off—which will enormously damage individual savers, businesses, charities, superannuation funds and all other enterprises which lose their funds;

Legal analysis of the crisis resolution powers legislated secretively for APRA in February 2018 has confirmed they could be used to bail in bank deposits;

The government denies deposits can be bailed in, but admits the law is from the Financial Stability Board (FSB), which applies bail-in to bank depositors;

The FSB and International Monetary Fund are directing Australia to implement stronger bail-in laws like those in New Zealand, the EU and the USA, which all apply to deposits;

To stop this planned theft, we therefore ask the House to:

  • amend the 2018 law to explicitly exclude deposits [which Senator Roberts’ bill will do];
  • block the stronger bail-in legislation the government is planning;
  • rescind APRA’s crisis resolution powers and pass instead the Separation of Banks Bill 2019 to protect deposits from speculation.
