Did Trump just nationalise the Federal Reserve?
by Alexandra Bruce
Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) devised by the Trump Administration will enable the Treasury to finance his $2 trillion Coronavirus stimulus package WITHOUT INTEREST.
Where did Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison find $130 billion at the drop of a hat to fund the Coronavirus economic stimulus package for struggling Australia?
The video ‘The Goldfish Report’ on forbiddenknowledgetv.net is the most informative yet about the world monetary system.
NESARA, which stands for the National Economic Security and Recovery Act was conceived by Harvey Francis Bernard, who held a doctorate in Systems Theory that he applied to economics.
On his deathbed in 2005, Harvey Bernard heard claims about NESARA and denied NESARA had been enacted into law.
But here’s where it gets REALLY crazy: The title of Bernard’s NESARA proposal is Draining the Swamp: Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform.
One of Trump’s top three slogans is associated with all of the craziness above – and we are living it now!
Godfather of the Rothschild banking cartel, Mayer Amschel Rothschild said, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
In a recent Bloomberg article, ‘The Fed’s Cure Risks Being Worse than the Disease’, Jim Bianco explains what is now happening with the Federal Reserve Bank in their response to the coronavirus. He writes, “This scheme essentially merges the Fed and Treasury into one organization, so meet your new Fed Chairman, Donald J Trump.”
Did President Trump just nationalize the Federal Reserve Bank?
On June 4th, 1963, President John F Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110, which many believe was an effort to transfer power from the Federal Reserve Bank to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve notes with silver certificates, thereby taking the power away from the international banking cartels. Less than six months later, President Kennedy was assassinated and his move against the Fed was reversed.
During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln printed $400 million worth of Greenbacks, a debt-free, interest-free money, independent of international bank control. In response, the London Times wrote that, “If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic should become indurated down to a fixture then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
The bankers were not willing to lose power and the Bank of England went on to fund the Confederacy. Weeks prior to Lincoln’s assassination, assassin John Wilkes Booth spent time in Montreal, known as the “Confederate capital of Canada” and was found after the assassination with a banknote from Ontario Bank. Booth’s personal manager, was banker, Joseph Simonds. After Lincoln was killed, power was restored to the international banking cartel.
The National Economic Security and Recovery Act, known as NESARA was a set of proposed economic reforms suggested during the 1990s by Harvey Francis Bernard. Bernard created the NESARA proposal during the late 1980s. He sent copies to members of Congress but was ignored. In 2001, he established the NESARA Institute and published the second edition of his book in 2005, re-titling it, ‘Draining the Swamp: The NESARA Story Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform’.
The policies included replacing the Income Tax with a National Sales Tax, abolishing compound interest on unsecured loans and returning to a “bimetallic currency” (gold and silver), which he claimed would result in zero percent inflation and a more stable economy.
There is a big buzz on the Internet that President Trump is implementing this plan. There is also speculation that this is part of a huge global economic reset, GESARA to be decided at the international World Court of The Hague. If this is true, certainly this decision has been decided years ago and we are just now feeling the effects.
The Coronavirus scare is beginning to look like a false alarm but the reaction is looking just like a false flag and it seems that when we come out the other end of this the world will be different.

Google had decided to sacrifice their own mission statement as a company, to ‘organize the world’s information and to make it universally-accessible’ – by censoring everything!
One of the bright spots of the past 3 years has been the emergence of Google whistleblower, Zach Vorhies and his insider confirmation that our most paranoid imaginings about Google were true with his gory details of how they’ve been actively working to censor independent content creators.
Vorhies, who was an engineer at Google-YouTube for 8 years describes working there as a dream job until he noticed a marked change in corporate ideology immediately following the election of Donald Trump.
This culminated into his jaw-dropping discovery that Google’s mobilization against “Fake News” and with their supposedly anti-bias “Machine Learning Fairness” program was almost entirely designed to protect Hillary Clinton from scrutiny into her crimes (!)
For example, he says, “[Google management] said that Hillary Clinton running weapons through Benghazi was an example of Fake News.” Not knowing whether or not this was true, Vorhies did his own due diligence and discovered, to his surprise that there was overwhelming evidence that Hillary had not only funneled weapons to ISIS, but that ISIS had fired a stinger missile she’d given to them, which didn’t ignite, therefore allowing it to be traced back to her.
It was at this point that he began to ask himself if Google’s efforts were “really about Fake News or is this really about controlling the narrative?”
Then he thought, “If they have a way to classify ‘Fake News’, then they must have some way to execute on removing this ‘Fake News’ from their search engine.” He scoured Google’s corporate intranet to discover what was doing this, which is how he discovered the project known as ‘Machine Learning Fairness’.
“They had put a lot of time into this project” and into convincing fellow managers into giving a priority to the project for all of their different systems, including Google Search, Google News and YouTube.
He’d stumbled upon these plans in early 2017 and was shocked over the course of the rest of the year, to watch it being pushed into more and more projects and to see more and more people hired for it. They were clearly going into an implementation phase.
Vorhies grew increasingly concerned and wondered why Google had decided to sacrifice their own mission statement as a company, to ‘organize the world’s information and to make it universally-accessible’ – by censoring everything!
He then describes an instance of how Google collaborated with the New York Times and the Washington Post in a psychological operation upon the world, when they removed the word “Covfefe” from the Arabic language section of Google Translator, to support the mainstream media in its full-saturation campaign to portray Donald Trump as “mentally ill”, in their bid to invoke the 25th Amendment and to have him replaced, due to his obvious “incapacitation”.
At this point, he had to ask himself whether he was witnessing a large scale act of sedition.
He then noticed that Google executives, including current CEO, Sundar Pichai lied to Congress by denying that they blacklisted any websites. When Vorhies went to check Google’s corporate intranet, he found that several websites were blacklisted in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, including the independent cold fusion website, E-Cat.
Further digging led Vorhies to the discovery that Google had their own secret cold fusion laboratory, which has since been made public. So, not only has Google been blacklisting and depriving many businesses, especially competitors of search traffic but they’ve been aiding in an attempted coup d’état against the duly elected president, all while adhering to the KGB playbook of Socialist ideological subversion, according to the tenets described by Soviet defector, Yuri Bezmenov.
This is the best interview with Zach Vorhies by far, going into the heart-pounding details of his resignation from Google, how Google called a massive police raid that shut down 2 square blocks of downtown San Francisco with a bomb squad and two helicopters, followed by harrowing lawfare. He describes how he’s strategized and prevailed. Zach is a real spiritual warrior.
He says all except one of the US’ 52 State’s Attorneys (except for California’s, naturally) are now investigating Google with Zach’s evidence, in addition to the City of New York and the Federal Government.
I didn’t realize when I started this that I would end up on the front lines of an asymmetrical civil war. As someone whose business has been destroyed in part by the algorithms discussed here, it’s been a validating experience to have a brave insider confirm what was so clear to many of us who make our living online and who could perceive that the Internet had been suddenly rigged against us.
It’s been such a relief to have him come forward, after over three years of algorithmic censorship and recurrent de-platformings, destroying my business when I do nothing wrong, let alone illegal, while these tech companies remain inscrutable and unpunished. Together with the Full Spectrum barrage of Fake News from the Mainstream Media, that has brainwashed my friends and family, I have to say, the past few years have been very demoralizing.
Recently, there’s been a ray of light. Around March 14th or 15th, I began to notice that my website’s traffic had significantly increased but that this wasn’t coming from my newsletter or from social media. This had to mean that it was coming from organic search traffic to my website’s nearly 6,000 pages, that people are again able to find using Google. My search traffic has been shut off for the past three years, which translates to lower page views and less ad revenue.
Vorhies gives his theory as to why it seems that Google removed some of their censorship algorithms. Those “17,000 Google engineers” that Trump said he’d hired to make a coronavirus app (which they still haven’t delivered) really only requires the skills of one engineer and no more than 3 days to create. He says each one of these engineers earns about $200,000 per year or a total of $3.4 billion per year – more, if the project stretches longer.
Vorhies’ best guess is that Google has accepted the Trump administration’s payoff to “unf@ck” their algorithms and to hopefully avoid serious trouble. Google has committed a laundry list of crimes with the expectation that Trump would not survive to prosecute them. The restoration of engagement-based search ranking should have an impact on the 2020 election.
By: John Hayward, Breitbart, 24 Mar 2020:
The opacity of the Chinese Communist government obliges responsible outside observers to look for clues to the truth of the coronavirus epidemic, instead of merely repeating official information without question.
The official count from China is 3,277 fatalities from 81,171 infections as of Tuesday, but the Epoch Times noted the troubling disappearance of some 21 million cell phone accounts in China over the past three months – an unprecedented decline that hints at more fatalities than Beijing is prepared to admit.
It should be stated at the outset that we should not be forced to read tea leaves to figure out what really happened in China, especially in the virus epicenter of Hubei province and the city of Wuhan, where Chinese officials are currently making claims of zero new infections that no one seriously believes. While more responsible governments issue troubling warnings of a second wave of infections, severe enough to prompt the re-imposition of quarantine procedures that were only recently lifted, China claims it has no second wave and all of its new coronavirus cases are imported.
WITH THAT IN MIND, THE EPOCH TIMES THOUGHT IT WAS A BIT ODD FOR 21 MILLION CHINESE CELL PHONES TO ABRUPTLY DISAPPEAR, GIVEN THAT CELL PHONE USAGE HAS BEEN INCREASING CONSTANTLY IN CHINA FOR YEARS, AND PHONES HAVE BEEN TOUTED AS AN IMPORTANT TOOL FOR CONTAINING THE CORONAVIRUS EPIDEMIC:
More From The Web
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced on March 19 the number of phone users in each province in February. Compared with the previous announcement, which was released on Dec. 18, 2019, for November 2019 data, both cellphone and landline users dropped dramatically. In the same period the year before, the number of users increased.
The number of cellphone users decreased from 1.600957 billion to 1.579927 billion, a drop of 21.03 million. The number of landline users decreased from 190.83 million to 189.99 million, a drop of 840,000.
In the previous February, the number increased. According to MIIT, the number of cellphone users increased in February 2019 from 1.5591 billion to 1.5835 billion, which is 24.37 million more. The number of landline users increased from 183.477 million to 190.118 million, which is 6.641 million more.
According to China’s National Bureau of Statistics, the country’s population at the end of 2019 was 4.67 million larger than in 2018, reaching 1.40005 billion.
The article went on to postulate that some of the landlines might have been shut down as a consequence of the coronavirus quarantines, particularly lines used by shuttered business operations, but the sheer magnitude of the cell phone user decline makes it more difficult to explain. China Mobile, the nation’s largest carrier, reported gaining 3.7 million new accounts in December but then losing over 8 million in January and February, months in which it posted gains of 3.5 million users the previous year.
The Epoch Times considered several explanations for the loss of users, such as migrant workers who kept different cell phones for their home and work cities – necessary due to some of China’s regulations on phone service – abandoning the work phone because it was not needed during the quarantine period, or people generally canceling their phone service because they wanted to save money during the hard months.
On the other hand, the government is currently requiring citizens to use their cell phones to generate “health codes” so their movements can be tracked and permission to travel can be restricted to healthy individuals, so as U.S.-based commentator Tang Jiangyuan put it, it is effectively “impossible for a person to cancel his cellphone.”
“Dealing with the government for pensions and social security, buying train tickets, shopping … no matter what people want to do, they are required to use cell phones,” Tang noted.
The New York Times explained just how heavily Chinese authorities are leaning on those cell phones to monitor their population, and not just for coronavirus infections:
The Times’s analysis found that as soon as a user grants the software access to personal data, a piece of the program labeled “reportIng And Location To Police” sends the person’s location, city name and an identifying code number to a server. The software does not make clear to users its connection to the police. But according to China’s state-run Xinhua news agency and an official police social media account, law enforcement authorities were a crucial partner in the system’s development.
While Chinese internet companies often share data with the government, the process is rarely so direct. In the United States, it would be akin to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention using apps from Amazon and Facebook to track the coronavirus, then quietly sharing user information with the local sheriff’s office.
The system, which relies on a unit of the immense Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, assigns users a green, yellow, or red “health code” in the style of a traffic light. Predictably, Chinese citizens find the opaque system cryptic and frightening, since the government has not explained exactly how it works.
“In some cities, residents now have to register their phone numbers with an app to take public transportation,” the Times added.
At the beginning of March, the so-called Alipay Health Code system had been launched in the city of Hangzhou, expanded to 200 other cities, and was on its way to a complete nationwide rollout. The rollout ran into some hitches over the following weeks, from technical glitches to confusion caused by local governments adding their own health codes to the already intimidating system.
A correspondent writing for Bloomberg News on March 18 reported using the system and said it was in the process of being “rolled out nationwide at railway stations, restaurants, pharmacies, and more.” Other reports in China have noted how cell phones are ubiquitous there and are employed for everything from accessing public and commercial resources to telecommuting to school during the coronavirus lockdown.
With this in mind, it might not be completely impossible to get by in Chinese cities without a cell phone at the moment, but it seems unlikely that a huge number of citizens would choose this moment to get rid of their phones.
“Lacking data, the real death toll in China is a mystery. The cancellation of 21 million cellphones provides a data point that suggests the real number may be far higher than the official number,” the Epoch Times concluded.
Letter to the Editor
Martial law in Poland
The world is in various forms of lockdown to avoid the inevitable—a trimming of the human herd.
It’s disconcerting to reach the age and time of life where you are the one the wolves would choose to trim out of the herd, but that’s life—and death.
It’s Mother Nature’s way and I respect it—even though I heard from a reliable source that Covid-19 might have had a little help from the P-4 lab on the outskirts of Wuhan.
My beloved Warsaw is in lock-down to prevent the spread of this killer disease. Sure, it’s over-hyped, but on the other hand—it seems to be working. Only a few deaths today and the spread is rapidly grinding to a halt.
The weak and old are dying. The young and healthy are recovering.
Once we reach a 60% level of infection/exposure, Mother Nature kicks in with an incredible defensive mechanism yet to be understood—herd immunity.
That’s right. Once 60% of us are exposed to this virulent form of flu, our human herd develops its own defense mechanism. How?
They haven’t a clue, but it happened with Covid 1-18, and it will happen again on #19, with or without a vaccine.
So as soldiers are closing and barricading the roads in and out of my ancient city, I’ve been thinking.
By Monday morning, only food and necessary deliveries will be allowed—which at first seems a little scary—but I’ve realised that it’s not all bad.
You see our borders are also closing for the first time since The Schengen Agreement was signed on June 14, 1985—but yesterday when guards starting dragging truckloads of combat-aged Muslims out of trucks and containers at the new border checks (15 Afghan soldiers in just one lorry)—it occurred to me that there are some upsides to all of this pain.
And it’s not just stopping the endless flood of young Muslim men invading Europe. It’s much more—and it’s all for the better.
Borders. Boundaries. An end to the terrible Globalists. A return to National Sovereignty. Hmmm
We’re going to lose a lot from our herd to this Chinese disease—yes, that’s where it came from and they deserve the credit, so I’ll continue calling it that.
But think of it. This killer has done something that a very few of our weak-sister politricksters would on their own—it has forced them to act like leaders of nations again.
They must focus now on taking care of those they were meant to serve instead of being the head whores of open-door flop houses for the rest of the world.
So, let’s look on the bright side of Wuhan Fever
Not only are borders and boundaries springing up again—entire restructuring of our supply chains is occurring as well—and it’s all happening quite literally overnight.
“Chinese pharmaceutical companies have supplied more than 90 percent of U.S. antibiotics,” according to the New York Times—and a Chinese official hinted this week that those might be withheld as a threat to the U.S. as leverage on trade issues—and if they do, it would be good thing in my opinion.
Yes, some of us will die for lack of medicine, but it will force my home nation and everyone else’s to wake up to the dangers of allowing a Communist totalitarian gang bent on world control to hold us hostage for basic needs
The last penicillin producer in America, as example, was shuttered in 2004, largely due to unfair trade practices by China and weak U.S. leadership allowing it—but one will spring up within days now, just like two surgical mask businesses did last week.
Surgical mask and latex glove manufacturing moved to China decades ago, but they’re rolling off the assembly line in Texas by the thousands as I write—and were up and running within weeks—thanks to private entrepreneurs and the elimination of thousands of regulations under President Trump—more of which were ditched yesterday as part of his declaration of a National Emergency.
In fact, the re-location of the supply chains just from the Hubei Province will leave China weakened for decades, and all of our nations will be strengthened in the process.
Jobs—real manufacturing jobs—are already flooding back to America, for example. Even in the midst of this crisis, 273,000 new jobs sprung up just last month and unemployment dropped to a record low of 3.5%.
There are only two losers in all of this—the Chinese Communist Party and the Soros One Worlders. They’re both done by the end of this pandemic.
It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. The world has seen the dangers of totalitarianism and the Chinese people will demand a change—in order to survive now that China’s weakness has been exposed (they’re $40 trillion in debt and entering a steep recession).
The other form of totalitarianism—Globalism—the one that brought on this pandemic—will be the other loser.
And I look forward to writing both of their obituaries.
Totalitarianism and globalism
Here they lie in this twin grave
Because like humans they could not behave.
One stole our wealth and one stole our soul,
Which is why they ended up in this damn hole.
May they never rest in peace

No order out of chaos
by staff writers
Allowing weddings with only five guests and funerals with 10 mourners are among the police state orders issued by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in a national broadcast tonight. His wide-ranging contradictory edict has excluded schools where many hundreds of kids assemble each day. He said all schools will remain open to function primarily as child minding centres for medical staff, other emergency services workers and parents who have to go to work.
Family barbeques, house parties, church services and outside gatherings have all been banned under sweeping, unprecedented policies formulated at a federal Cabinet meeting Tuesday night.
Real estate auctions and open house inspections also will end.
There have been more than 343,000 global Covin 19 infections resulting in 14,000 deaths. Australia has recorded 8 deaths from 2136 confirmed cases so far.
The Liberal government supports four states closing their borders to all but essential services such as freight and vital jobs. Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory have closed their borders and Queensland will be closed off on Thursday. Notably three are Labor states.
Air and train services are almost non-existent and interstate travel will be prevented by closed borders. The PM has mooted this new way of life could be in force for at least six months.
These dramatic policies come on the heels of an escalating death rate across the world allegedly caused by the Covin-19 virus which investigations show was developed in the UK, sent to Canada for invigorating as a bio-weapon then stolen by two Chinese scientists working at the Canadian lab and taken to Wuhan in China.
Wuhan is one of China’s first smart cities smothered exclusively by the 5G network.
The government has developed a ‘social distancing’ regime of 1.5 metres to prevent close contact between persons in public and private. How couples can perform in conjugal activities and adhere to social distancing have not yet been included in the massive crackdown.
Persons hoarding essential items such as food, baby milk or even scarce toilet paper then on-selling overseas will be prosecuted, the PM said.
The government expects nearly 1 million sacked workers, small business operators and others displaced by Covin-19 to apply for assistance from Centrelink.
Today Cairnsnews was told that Centrelink has advised emergency assistance applicants not to expect any financial assistance for at least three weeks. A young girl who was laid off from a private administrative position on Monday said she had $200 in the bank and could not survive for three weeks without financial help.
Queues at main Centrelink offices were up to 500 metres long today, some waiting for 6 or seven hours without managing to get an interview. The numbers became so large that police had to intervene at some locations.
Chief Medical Officer Dr Brendan Murphy speaking alongside the PM said it was imperative people observed social distancing to prevent the virus from spreading any further.
“We are going to have to change the way we interact as human beings for some time,” Dr Murphy stated.
“These measures are draconian.
“In life threatening circumstances we might have to take even stricter measures.”
A knee-jerk decision by the State Labor Government to implement a blanket shut down of all Queensland ports to foreign ships until they go through a two-week quarantine period could see North Queensland lose millions of dollars from the local live export industry.
Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) MPs have called out Maritime Safety Queensland’s (MSQ’s) decision, which will exclude all foreign ships from pilotage areas at Queensland ports until 14 days has elapsed since leaving their last international port due to concerns over COVID-19, as an over-reach.
It follows discussions today between the KAP and Townsville feedlot and export operator Py Porter, who manages Kellys Yards, Queensland Livestock Exporters’ Association president Greg Pankhurst, Frontier International managing director Will McEwin and Frontier logistics operator Tom Emery.
State KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said there were fears Queensland’s live export market would be severely impacted at a time when economic stability across all sectors was desperately needed.
“The North’s live export trade is facing an extremely dire situation as a result of this blanket ban,” said Mr Katter said.
“Live export is a critical part of the supply chain in northern Australia and the middle of this year will see a lot of producers looking for markets to sell cattle as the grass is minimal.
“This decision is going to mean that areas such as Cloncurry and Mount Isa will be sending cattle to Darwin as a result of this blanket quarantine policy, with North Queensland losing out on millions of dollars.”
KAP Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said there was no reason why MSQ could not adopt Darwin’s approach to commercial vessels, which instead of imposing a quarantine has implemented measures that restrict the crew from disembarking.
“Persons loading cattle from the docks and the people on those vessels do not meet each other anyway, so Darwin’s measures make far more sense. Restrict the crew from disembarking and you’ve already minimised the chances of
COVID-19 spreading through human-to-human contact,” he said.
“With the current air travel restrictions in place also impacting box meat supply to places like Indonesia and Vietnam, there is already an increased demand for Australian live export.
“But if our customers can’t access our ports in a timely manner, Queensland is going to miss the boat.
“Graziers have been doing it tough for too many years and all of a sudden an economic opportunity is here for them to capitalise on, all they need is for the government to get out of the way and let them do business.
“One cattleman we’ve spoken to fears the live export market will crash because of these port restrictions with little to no consultation by the State Government.”
“I understand there is a vessel due to come into Townsville early next month, which means they would have to hold offshore empty for the 14-day quarantine costing a significant amount of money in carrier fees per seven day waiting period. This is unacceptable,” Mr Katter said.
“Think about the knock-on effects to the industry chain, such as hay suppliers, fodder suppliers, vets, consumables from local agribusiness stores and cattle agents.
“The state needs to remove this restriction and the Federal Government should immediately classify the cattle supply chain as an essential industry. We cannot afford to lose it.”
US CDC advertised for infectious disease quarantine officers November 2019 long before Wuhan Cov19 announcement
The US Centre for Disease Control has been caught out having prior knowledge of the Coronavirus epidemic by advertising for infectious diseases quarantine officers in November 2019, long before China told the world of the Wuhan outbreak. This revealing video exposes this terrible conspiracy in which Australia is perhaps an unwilling accomplice.
It has been alleged by Sydney psychiatrist Dr Russell McGregor that the Geelong Animal Health Research Institute was involved in the manufacture of the virus. He was struck off the medical register for his trouble.
Big pharma, which is attached to the CDC by an umbilical cord, stands to benefit immensely from the pandemic by releasing a new Cov19 vaccine on the market across the world.
It will make big pharma billions yet some researchers say it won’t work. Now vaccine skeptic Robert F Kennedy has jumped onboard the runaway crisis. Kennedy warned of dangerous vaccines for many years after his son became autistic, like about 2 per cent of all American kids after getting the MMR and other vaccines. He is warning against any newly developed Cov19 vaccine. The US has paid out $3.6 billion in vaccine damages over the past 20 years. Beware of any new or for that matter old flu vaccines.

India publication warned of Chinese bio-warfare program in August 2019
First published August 2019, Last modified on February 29th, 2020 at 9:55 pm, republished March 8, 2020 by Cairnsnews
Canada has launched an investigation into China’s Biological Espionage. Bio-warfare experts question why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China.
In a table-top pandemic exercise at Johns Hopkins University last year, a pathogen based on the emerging Nipah virus was released by fictional extremists, killing 150 million people.
A less apocalyptic scenario mapped out by a blue-ribbon U.S. panel envisioned Nipah being dispersed by terrorists and claiming over 6,000 American lives.
Scientists from Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) have also said the highly lethal bug is a potential bio-weapon.
But this March that same lab shipped samples of the henipavirus family and of Ebola to China, which has long been suspected of running a secretive biological warfare program.
China strongly denies it makes germ weapons, and Canadian officials say the shipment was part of its efforts to support public-health research worldwide. Sharing of such samples internationally is relatively standard practice.
But some experts are raising questions about the March transfer, which appears to be at the centre of a shadowy RCMP investigation and dismissal of a top scientist at the Winnipeg-based NML.
“I would say this Canadian ‘contribution’ might likely be counterproductive,” said Dany Shoham, a biological and chemical warfare expert at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University. “I think the Chinese activities … are highly suspicious, in terms of exploring (at least) those viruses as BW agents. “
James Giordano, a neurology professor at Georgetown University and senior fellow in biowarfare at the U.S. Special Operations Command, said it’s worrisome on a few fronts.
China’s growing investment in bio-science, looser ethics around gene-editing and other cutting-edge technology and integration between government and academia raise the spectre of such pathogens being weaponized, he said.
That could mean an offensive agent, or a modified germ let loose by proxies, for which only China has the treatment or vaccine, said Giordano, co-head of Georgetown’s Brain Science and Global Law and Policy Program.
“This is not warfare, per se,” he said. “But what it’s doing is leveraging the capability to act as global saviour, which then creates various levels of macro and micro economic and bio-power dependencies.”
Asked if the possibility of the Canadian germs being diverted into a Chinese bio weapons program is connected to other upheaval at the microbiology lab, Public Health Agency of Canada spokeswoman Anna Maddison said this week the agency “continues to look into the administrative matter.”
The agency divulged last week that it sent samples of Ebola and henipavirus — which includes Nipah and the related Hendra — to China in March. It was meant for virus research, part of the agency’s mission to back international public-health research, a spokesman said.
Last month, an acclaimed NML scientist — Xiangguo Qiu — was reportedly escorted out of the lab along with her husband, another biologist, and members of her research team. The agency said it was investigating an “administrative issue,” and had referred a possible policy breach to the RCMP. Little more has been said about the affair.
China has been a signatory to the Biological Weapons Convention since 1984, and has repeatedly insisted it is abiding by the treaty that bans developing bio-weapons.
Though no details have appeared in the open literature, China is “commonly considered to have an active biological warfare program,” says the Federation of American Scientists. An official with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defence charged last month China is the world leader in toxin “threats.”
In a 2015 academic paper, Shoham – of Bar-Ilan’s Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies – asserts that more than 40 Chinese facilities are involved in bio-weapon production.
China’s Academy of Military Medical Sciences actually developed an Ebola drug – called JK-05 — but little has been divulged about it or the defence facility’s possession of the virus, prompting speculation its Ebola cells are part of China’s bio-warfare arsenal, Shoham told the National Post.
KAP Leader, Robbie Katter said it’s quite clear major businesses and government are closely aligned with China, after the ACCC cleared the way for China Mengniu Dairy to takeover Lion’s dairy and drinks portfolio.
“Unlike Australia, China’s government looks after the Chinese people first and foremost,” he said.
“It’s no secret that they have an insatiable appetite for our goods and industry and when it comes to their interests compared to ours, of course we will lose.
“Governments have proven time and again that they are less than willing to correct that imbalance.”
The State Member for Traeger said it was a bad outcome for the nation’s dairy farmers.
“While foreign investment is nothing new to the dairy industry, it still remains a characteristic of the government culture in Australia,” he said.
Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said he was sick of the blood sucking Sydney suits selling their country out.
“They get their 30 pieces of sliver for selling their country but I am certain they will rot in Hell,” Mr Katter said.
“The government is a joke. It’s not a government. It doesn’t bear any resemblance to a government.
“They are not reflecting the will of the people. The only will Australia’s governments reflect is the one they see in the mirror.”
Mr Katter said he was taking his fight against the foreign takeover of Australia to the Parliament; just last week he introduced the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020.
Federal Member Bob Katter has taken his fight to protect Australia from foreign corporations to the floor of the Federal Parliament.
The Katter’s Australian Party Member introduced a Bill today to protect Australia from the foreign corporate colonisation of rural and regional areas (The Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020) – the second time Mr Katter has introduced the Bill in five years.
Mr Katter said he didn’t know how other MPs would be able to look at their grandchildren and great grandchildren in the eye and tell them that they sold off their nation.
“On behalf of the Australian people we say no more foreign ownership,” Mr Katter said.
“Around 30 per cent of the people I meet tell me they are shocked and horrified that the Government is selling Australia off and out.”
The Bill states a foreign person cannot acquire a 10 per cent or greater interest in Australian land, water, or other assets that are of strategic economic or defence significance.
“A two thirds majority in both houses of parliament must approve foreign acquisitions, and the acquisition will be for no more than 45 percent of the asset,” Mr Katter said.
13.4 per cent of Australia’s agricultural land is foreign owned according to the ATO’s latest statistics from July 2018.
And foreign agricultural ownership is as high as 25 per cent in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
Similarly with Australia’s water assets, the ATO data shows 10.4 per cent is owned by foreign interests.
“The Ord stage two and stage three were given completely to China, despite more than 30 Australians applying for the water,” Mr Katter said.
“Our most strategic northern deep water Port in Darwin was effectively sold off as well.
“It was also the most strategic Port for the Americans in the South Pacific. Is there anything this Government won’t sell?”
The Bill also calls for the establishment of a Foreign Ownership Assessment Board (FOAB) to determine whether an asset is of strategic economic or defence importance.
Mr Katter said the board would be chosen by a majority of the Senate of Australia and any determination of the FOAB would be reviewable by an appeals tribunal.
Muslims, Pacific Islands and Indonesia gifted hundreds of millions from Liberals, but desperate farmers have to borrow to survive
Letter to the Editor
Dear Liberal Party friends
(1) sorry to say that this email below is worse than pathetic – – losing votes.
(2) Bridget Mackenzie, Agriculture Minister, on 2GB this morning was painfully inadequate to answering Alan Jones’s reasonable questions and facts.
Alan Jones (rightly in my view) demolished the stupidity of the proposed two-year interest-free loans to farmers that then roll over into loans at 3.1% after two years on money that the Govt can get from the Reserve Bank at 0.75%, thus making a profit from struggling farmers!
(3) LET ME SUM UP THIS ScoMo GOVT
- extra $1,000 million recently announced to the Clean Energy Finance Corporation – this is both unnecessary and crazy – the recent Aust Energy Market Operator report predicts blackouts for NSW and Victoria this summer – but there are NO PROPOSALS for reliable baseload nuclear or coal power stations!
- Our Foreign Affairs Minister gave $70million to Rohinga Moslems
- ScoMo promised $500 million to Pacific Islands to help them fight the mythical monster of climate change
- This federal Govt gives Islamic Indonesia $1million per day as a gift, of which how much ends up in Swiss Bank accounts of officials?!
- While it is a good thing to release some Murray-Darling Basin water to assist in growing fodder, may I point out that that will take TIME!
- BUT we don’t have time — it won’t help to stop Farmers’ cattle and sheep dying of starvation or being shot or sold tomorrow and next week.
- The claim of 21 water infrastructure projects is false and deceptive — no major dam has been built since 1983 – and NONE IS NOW BEING BUILT – of course there are various proposals and feasibility studies BUT NO ACTUAL DIGGING!! ZILCH. NIL ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION HAPPENING.
NSW water Minister Melinda Pavey recently admitted in a fit of frankness that the best we can hope for is to start digging in 3 years from now!
