A SECOND monolith appears

I was absolutely obsessed by 2001: A Space Odyssey when I was in my teens.

Bill Gates' $100 Billion Contact Tracing Deal With Democratic Congressman 6 months BEFORE the pandemic

EXCLUSIVE: Bill Gates 

Negotiated $100 Billion 

Contact Tracing Deal With 

Democratic Congressman 

Sponsor of Bill Six Months 

BEFORE Coronavirus 

Pandemic


TruPundit,

11 June, 2020


The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation helped negotiate who would score a $100 Billion government-backed contact tracing contract in August 2019 — six months before the ‘pandemic’ arrived in the United States and four months before it swept through China. 

The shocking revelations were unveiled on the Thomas Paine Podcast and the Moore Paine Show on Patreon by the two investigators who blew the whistle on the massive Clinton Foundation tax fraud during a Congressional hearing in 2018. John Moynihan and Larry Doyle testified in Congress, detailing the fraud and schemes utilized by the Clinton’s to avoid paying up to $2.5 BILLION in federal taxes.

The investigative duo, in their first interview since that bombshell Congressional testimony, revealed to Paine that representatives from the Gates Foundation met with U.S. Congressman Bobby L. Rush at a sit down in Rwanda, East Africa in mid August 2019 to hash out who would score the windfall from a government contact tracing program. And just last month — nine months after the meetings with the Gates Foundation in Rwanda —  Rush, a Democrat from Illinois, introduced the $100 BILLION H.R. 6666, the COVID-19 Testing, Reaching and Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act.

Rush’s bill would establish a program run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for national coronavirus testing and contact tracing.

Paine has since learned Congressman Rush traveled to Rwanda with his spouse from August 12th to 19th, 2019 to take part in talks and a week-long event underwritten by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

But how can you negotiate the byproducts of monitoring a pandemic six to seven months before the outbreak of the virus even happens?


Inelia Benz: the Plandemic is the physical manifestation of the split in reality we chose in 2011.

 Right now we need as much spiritual help as we can find.

I have been aware of Inelia Benz for some years and occasionally I am reminded of her.  Perhaps this may be of help to some.

It’s hard to release those we 

love


Inelia Benz




This week’s podcast goes deeply into this conversation, the conversation on how the plandemic is the physical manifestation of the split in reality we chose in 2011.

Before 2011 we, as a species on Planet Earth, were following a course of evolution which meant that we would all step out of the low-frequency power over others (POO) game and step into remembering who and what we are, remembering our capacities and abilities as instant manifestors of reality and experiencing a huge expansion both in awareness and connection to the rest of the Universe. Our horizons were going to be pushed out into the stars, and our connection with our brethren out there reestablished.

But in 2011 there was a vote on Earth by all the beings who had originally decided to have the power over others' game of separation and suffering. The vote was brought forward by a large number of people who said that forcing them to drop the low-frequency games was against a fundamental rule of life, “free will”. The reason being that they were not done with the power over others’ game yet and to force them to leave would be a violation of free will.

I was shocked when I looked at this “vote”. The reason I was shocked was not so much that it had been brought up, although, yes, that was disappointing, but that the vote was pushed through and the deciding group who made it pass were a very specific group of “lightworkers”.

Yup, you heard it right. The reason we are still living in a psychotic society is because lightworkers decided that they were not DONE with their “evolutionary” job of saving others.

The word that came to me at the time, in 2011, was the word “bodhisattva”. Bodhisattva means “An enlightened being who, out of compassion, forgoes nirvana in order to save others.” Wrapped within this belief are things such as:

Martyrdom

The illusion of separation

Ego gratification of the savior

Victim/aggressor cycle

Guilt

Karma (the western view of a “tooth for a tooth”)

Belief that nirvana or heaven can only be achieved through pain and suffering.

That pain and suffering is what makes people “better people”.

When I found out that it was lightworkers, lightbeings, who were pushing this, I was shocked. Yet, although I knew it and had seen some examples of it on the planet, the experience of it had not touched me until yesterday.

Yesterday I lost a good friend, an amazing healer, and wisdom-keeper because she decided that the “pandemic” is real, that she has had to sacrifice herself, her friendships and life to keep her fragile patients safe from Covid19. And that basically, I was not compatible with her beliefs and my beloveds and me were a danger to her and her patients.

I have advised everyone that when this happens, to simply let them go. To release them. To let them crumble. Don’t try to wake them up, bring them back to sanity because basically they “know” you are insane and dangerous.

It’s tough. I did fall for the few hours of wanting her back on track, but then realized that she was never on the same track as me. For years she has asked my advice, I give it and she hasn’t followed it. For years she has not given up alcohol, has not processed her fears and has not released power over others.

It was still a surprise to be at the receiving end of her righteousness and passive aggressiveness. Two things I did not expect in a lightworker healer.

It brought me back to 2011 when I saw this. It was in 2011 that the energetic split happened. When the division was created and when people had a choice to awaken from the illusion of separation or to stay in the POO game. It was painful. It hurt so much that I thought I was going to die. It was a physical pain that I could only describe as a body being physically torn in half. And then there was the emotional pain of separation, of seeing people get swallowed up in the POO.

Today, millions of people are experiencing that pain of separation as their loved ones, lightworkers, choose “fear” instead of awakened sovereignty. My friend literally said she was “terrified” and was taking decisions from that state of fear because it was “human” to do so.

I wanted to share this experience with you, and also the podcast where Larry and I go into deep discussion over this aspect of the split, to let you know that I KNOW what you are going through. To let you know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. And to encourage you to know you are not wrong. But also to remind you to let them go, let those people who you love, go. Their higher selves know better than you which side of the split they are going to be on.

To support you through this time, I suggest you do the following exercise when you wake up in the morning and before you go to sleep at night.

Here is this week’s podcast where Larry and I discuss this situation in depth.

In Joy/Light/Love,

Inelia Benz - Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview

TruNews on the coup

 It has taken me a while to get to this broadcast and to get through it.  In this the TruNews team unpack events and come to the conclusion that there has been a revolution and what is called for now is a counter-revolution and that implies war - at home and overseas.

It is not about one president but for the integrity of America as a constitutional republic.


DEM DONKEY DUMPS: 

NEWS BLACKOUT ON 

MYSTERIOUS EARLY-

MORNING VOTE SURGES IN 

SWING STATES




Today on TruNews we discuss the implications of further election deception, as continuing efforts by the Trump campaign legal team, Sidney Powell, and Lin Wood chisel away at the Dominion and Smartmatic ballot fraud. Will the punishment for treason by firing squad be used for traitors to the Republic? 

Rick also responds to critics regarding paying the synagogue fine in New York.

Coincidentally this appeared just after listening to TruNews. It is just one person's viewpoint.


No matter Who wins, War is now unavoidable


https://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message4609746/pg1

At the time I’m writing this it is becoming clear that even if Trump remains in office, that war is unavoidable. No matter who wins, Half of the country will not accept the election results.


The country is coming apart, there is no middle ground, No reasoning with the other side, and no way to co-exist any longer. The fuse has been lit, and the writing is on the wall for all to see.



This is how I see things breaking down in the next 6 months.


If Biden wins then the left will not let things go back to normal, they will be emboldened thinking that it’s time to get even with all of the evil Trump supporters. They will get nastier and nastier to the point where someone will open fire on them, from there they will try to go after all of the privately owned firearms, this is when things start to get really hairy , when people feel threatened they are quick to fire first and ask questions later, and they will not call the police if they fear unfair prosecution , they will run and lay low hoping that it will all blow over. At this time is when the violence will be wide spread and chaotic.



If Trump pulls this out and wins, Then He and His supporters will be calling for the heads of traitors, the Deep State and the Democrats who rigged the election. Trump will almost certainly invoke the Insurrection Act, and declare Martial Law to deal with BLM and Antifa. There will be public Tribunals, and life sentences instead of public executions. Domestic Terrorism will be wide spread in urban areas, and the infrastructure will be attacked in areas. The Media will be silenced, and many will go to jail for being co-conspirators in an attempted Coup.

By the end of 2021, the Military will be the Big “ If” in the mix.


The big question will be the Military, most support Trump and will follow his orders, but most don’t know anything about Posse Comitatus, and are too scared to disobey an unlawful orders, which means that if Biden is in charge then they may be turned against the Patriots, most will be more than happy to crack some soyboy, leftist heads to maintain law and order, but when they are ordered to hunt down Conservatives will start to question orders, and become hostile to their commanders ( such as fragging the LT, in Vietnam) At this point the military fractures, sides are drawn and the 2nd Civil War begins.



French protesters set fire to Rothschild bank


 French Protesters Set Fire To Central Bank

Zero Hedge,

30 November, 2020


One of the recurring questions amid the year's countless BLM protests and associated riots has been why instead of burning and looting innocent businesses, the angry mob does not target the source of all wealth, income and social inequality - not just in the US but the world - the central bank, i.e. Federal Reserve (located at 2051 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20418 for those unaware).

Yet while US protesters and rioters still need guidance what buildings to burn down, their French peers are finally catching on.

Over the weekend, tens of thousands of critics of a proposed security law that would restrict the filming of police officers protested across France on Saturday, and officers in Paris who were advised to behave responsibly during the demonstrations repeatedly fired tear gas to disperse rowdy protesters. The controversial Article 24 of the bill seeks to protect police officers from doxing and harassment, and bans filming of cops on duty and sharing their images online with the "intent to harm."

Civil liberties groups, journalists, and people who have faced police abuse are concerned that the measure will stymie press freedoms and allow police brutality to go undiscovered and unpunished.

“We have to broaden the debate, and by doing that, we say that if there were no police violence, we wouldn’t have to film violent policemen,” Assa Traore, a prominent anti-brutality activist whose brother died in police custody in 2016, told The Associated Press.

At least 46,000 people packed the sprawling Republique plaza and surrounding streets carrying red union flags, French tricolor flags and homemade signs denouncing police violence, demanding media freedom or calling for the resignation of French President Emmanuel Macron or his tough-talking interior minister, Gerald Darmanin.

The crowd included journalists, journalism students, left-wing activists, migrants rights groups and citizens of varied political stripes expressing anger over what they perceive as hardening police tactics in recent years, especially since France’s yellow vest protest movement against economic hardship emerged in 2018.

Violence erupted near the end of the march as small groups of protesters pelted riot police with small rocks and paving stone. The officers retaliated with volleys of tear gas, prompting minor scuffles.

What we found most remarkable is that as rioting escalated, the protesters did something they have never done before (to our knowledge): they set fire to the facade of the central bank building in Paris.


While fire crews reached the central bank building on time, and it did not spontaneously collapse "due to the high temperatures" unlike some other structures, one wonders what happens during the next protest, or the one after. And when will US protesters figure out what the French already have: that burning and looting stores owned by fellow hard-working citizens only exacerbates the inequality. On the other hand, to really make a statement, a couple of Molotov cocktails aimed at the Marriner Eccles building just may attract some attention.


Covid crazyness


In mid-September, China suspended importing fishery products from Indonesia due to novel coronavirus contamination in the outer packages.

A month earlier, China also reported frozen chicken wings imported from Brazil have traces of the virus as well as frozen prawns from Ecuador.

China has reported around 10 cases of SARS-CoV-2, the COVID-19 virus in the frozen products or its packaging.

Reports from China have highlighted safety issues on imported frozen foods. But most international food safety authorities state that there’s no evidence of COVID-19 transmission through frozen foods.

Even so, food producers and consumers should be vigilant and follow COVID-19 protocol such as wash hand using soap under running water at least 20 seconds before and after touching frozen food. Also, producers should not prepare or package food if they are sick.

Food safety

The news from China about the possibility of COVID-19 transmission through frozen products has prompted the New Zealand government to track down the virus in frozen goods.

In August, after more than three months having zero new cases, New Zealand found a positive case. The lady, in her 50s, had no record of overseas travel nor local transmission indication.

In the beginning, there was speculation that her husband, who worked at a frozen goods packaging company, contracted the virus from his working environment and transmitted it to her. He experienced COVID-19 symptom two weeks earlier.

But, the government said the possibility is negligible. However, there was no clarity of the virus source.

Research findings

The World Health Organization (WHO) in April stated that it’s highly unlikely that people can contract COVID-19 from food or food packaging.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (US-FDA), The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), and the Australian and New Zealand Food Standards also stated that there’s no evidence of COVID-19 transmission from food.

These statements are in-line with new research findings from USA and China using animal experiment to test whether virus SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted through oral injection.

Their result showed when the virus is entering the gastrointestinal tract, it could not survive due to high acidity in the stomach.

Research from Minnesota university also showed that the cooking process, using heat, kills the virus. Therefore, cooked food should be safe to consume.

How about low temperature such as frozen food with traces of the virus?

The head of microbiology at the China National Centre for Food Safety Risk Assessment, Li Fengqin, in June stated the contamination of COVID-19 through frozen food could potentially be a source of transmission. This statement is underpinned by the latest report, also from China, that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was still alive in frozen food packaging.

Contaminated food or food packaging may give positive result under PCR test. But, if the RNA in the virus is dead, the virus could not replicate further, ruling out chances of further transmission.

We need more data on RNA replication test from contaminated frozen food to determine protocols on food or food packaging. Currently, China is actively conducting research to fulfil the data as part of their awareness to this pandemic.

It is possible with more available data, the current consensus on food safety will change, similar to the shift in advice on wearing masks for healthy people.

 UK EXPECTS ‘HIGH VOLUME’ OF COVID VACCINE ADVERSE REACTIONS

The UK is preparing for a mass Covid vaccination campaign, anticipating the injection of millions of citizens with the experimental vaccine. As the date approaches to launch this unprecedented measure, the UK’s top health body, the MHRA, makes a shocking, urgent request which begs the question: ‘Is the Covid Vaccine safe?

WHO's Michael Ryan wants to go into families to remove those who might be 

sick


I included as much context as seemed reasonable, so that no one can say this was taken out of context. But at around the 1:15 mark in the video, he literally says this. For the entire context, you can see the entire session this clip was pulled from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v3vl... 50 minutes in is when Michael Ryan is suggesting this as the necessary step to ending the lockdowns.










Pubs and restaurants could demand to know if a customer has received a coronavirus jab before allowing them in, the Government’s vaccine minister suggested.

Nadhim Zahawi, who is responsible for the rollout of a vaccine if one is approved by regulators, said it would not be compulsory to receive an injection.

But he suggested businesses might require proof of vaccination before allowing people in.

Asked whether people who get the Covid-19 jab will receive some kind of “immunity passport” to show they have been vaccinated, Mr Zahawi told the BBC: “We are looking at the technology.

“And, of course, a way of people being able to inform their GP that they have been vaccinated.

“But, also, I think you’ll probably find that restaurants and bars and cinemas and other venues, sports venues, will probably also use that system – as they have done with the (test and trace) app.

“I think that in many ways, the pressure will come from both ways, from service providers who’ll say, ‘Look, demonstrate to us that you have been vaccinated’.

“But, also, we will make the technology as easy and accessible as possible.”

Such a regime could result in people without the vaccine facing severe restrictions.

Mr Zahawi said: “I think people have to make a decision.

“But I think you’ll probably find many service providers will want to engage with this in the way they did with the app.”

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told a Downing Street press conference: “For a long time now we’ve been looking at the questions that minister Zahawi was talking about and the question of what’s the impact on the individual in terms of what they can do.”

But he added: “Firstly, we do not plan to mandate the vaccine.

“We think that by encouraging the uptake of the vaccine, we will get a very high proportion of people in this country to take up the vaccine, because of course it protects you but it also helps to protect your loved ones and your community.”....




Dr. Michael Ryan, Director of Global Alert and Response of the World Health Organization (WHO), told journalists at a press briefing on Monday that "pinch points," otherwise known as places where people gather, must be "managed."


Ryan spoke about numerous types of public areas, such as airports, public transportation, and even places like ski resorts that governments must "manage" to prevent further spreading of COVID-19. 


He called on governments around the world to investigate "all forms of gatherings that lead to people congregating are moving en masse and how they are going to de-risk those processes."

The rapidly declining relations between Australia and China

 China Trolls Australia With "Repugnant" Doctored Image, Refuses To Apologize


Zero Hedge,

30 November, 2020


The developing China-Australia trade row which initially sprang out of Australia's joining other countries in criticizing Beijing's handling of the coronavirus crisis has just taken a bizarre and sinister turn.

It started early Monday when China’s foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian posted a disturbing image to Twitter depicting an Aussie soldier about to slit the throat of a child in Afghanistan. The grinning soldier is depicted holding a bloody knife to the distressed child, who is seen holding a lamb, which is a symbol of innocence. 



Australian leaders and media were quick to point out it is a doctored or "fake" image and demanded that Lijian remove it immediately, and that Twitter take action over the account. 

"It is utterly outrageous and cannot be justified on any basis," Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said. "The Chinese government should be utterly ashamed of this post. It diminishes them in the world’s eyes."

Morrison and others demanded a formal apology out of China over the "repugnant" image and tweet. But China's foreign ministry refused calls to apologize, instead doubling down on its charge that Australia appears less ashamed over its egregious war crimes in Afghanistan and more concerned over public embarrassment based on a tweet.

It comes after earlier this month Australia was rocked by scandal when a detailed investigation known as the Brereton War Crimes report revealed that Aussie special forces were implicated in up to 39 or more "unlawful killings" of Afghan civilians and prisoners. At least 13 Australian soldiers are facing criminal charges after horrific details emerged that they were killing random civilians essentially for sport, in something they called "blooding" - or initiating a special forces new join into war by orchestrating their first kill and then covering it up.

Here's how China responded to the demands for an apology:

"It is the Australian government who should feel ashamed for their soldiers killing innocent Afghan civilians," said Hua Chunying, China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman, when asked about Morrison’s comments.

The image posted by her colleague shows people’s "indignation," said Hua, speaking at a regular news conference in Beijing on Monday. Whether it will be taken down is a matter between Twitter and the Australian government, she said.

It is indeed clear that the tweet was meant to highlight the shocking history of well-documented war crimes by Australia in central Asia, and is the latest in Canberra being forced to play on the defensive with China, after major commodities exports earlier this month were blocked and/or were hit with huge tariffs by China.

Zhao had written on Twitter alongside the image: "Shocked by murder of Afghan civilians & prisoners by Australian soldiers. We strongly condemn such acts, & call for holding them accountable."

As of late in the day Monday (local time), the tweet is still up and has not been blocked or taken down by Twitter.

Chinese propaganda



Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian on Monday posted on Twitter a cartoon circulating on Chinese social media platforms condemning Australian troops' murder of 39 innocent Afghans. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was very angry about it, accused Zhao of offending his country, and demanded an apology from China. 

I was really shocked and disgusted. How could this Australian PM be so ridiculously arrogant to pick on Chinese FM spokesperson's condemnation against the murder of innocent people? Is the murder fake news? Shouldn't that illustrator have made the cartoon? Didn't the Chinese FM spokesperson have the right to repost that cartoon to censure Australian troops' murder of innocent Afghan civilians? 

The Australian government's many moves have made Australia more and more like a rural-urban continuum in Western civilization, where rogues and outlaws run wild. Whenever the leader of the West is up to something bad, it just needs to come to this place and hire some hatchet men. Afghanistan is so far away from Australia geographically, but Australian soldiers have killed as many as 39 innocent people there. 

Morrison should kneel down on the ground, slap himself in the face, and kowtow to apologize to Afghans - all these should be done in a live telecast. No matter what harsh words people use on them for the murder, the Australian government should have accepted it. How dare they talk back and say they are offended!

The Morrison administration is the political hatchet man hired by the US akin to a mafia. There is no remedy in Western culture that could save them. They should be sent to the temples in Thailand, Myanmar or China's Zhoushan, get their hair shaved and chant scriptures, and be taught not to kill people first thing first. They should recite The Analects and be taught that one should not impose on others what he himself does not desire. Such an education of Eastern civilization is expected to heal their evil minds and murderous mentality.

Australian troops and fleets should leave Asia and the coastal waters of the Asian continent. More precisely, they should run as far as they can. The Morrison administration is making Australia provocative and wanting a spanking.

The editor of China’s state-run English language newspaper, Hu Xijin, has posted an incendiary piece calling Prime Minister Scott Morrison “ridiculously arrogant” and saying he should “slap himself in the face” on live television.

The searing editorial comes after Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian posted a doctored image on Twitter showing an Australian soldier holding a knife to the throat of a young child holding a lamb.

“Don’t be afraid, we are coming to bring you peace,” the caption reads.

The image references the Brereton report that alleged elite Australian soldiers had carried out war crimes including the killings of 39 Afghans in a series of incidents that are being referred for special investigation and potential prosecution.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison reacted swiftly and unequivocally to the image being shared on social media, calling it “truly repugnant”, calling for an apology from the Chinese government and asking the social media giant to take it down.

“It is deeply offensive to every Australian, every Australian who has served in that uniform, every Australian who serves in that uniform today, everyone who has pulled on that uniform and served with Australians overseas from whatever nation, that they have done that. It is utterly outrageous and it cannot be justified on any basis whatsoever,” he said in a virtual press conference on Monday.

“The Chinese Government should be totally ashamed of this post. It diminishes them in the world’s eyes.”

Australia's winemakers are scrambling to find new buyers around the world after China imposed hefty tariffs on the industry, effectively cutting it off from its most important export market.

Beijing's decision last week to impose tariffs of up to 212% on Australian wine imports has endangered business with mainland China, according to Tony Battaglene, CEO of Australian Grape and Wine, a national association.
Battaglene works with around 800 wine producers in Australia who have "built their businesses" around exporting to China and are now left with no backup plan, he added.
    "We were surprised, we were shocked," Battaglene told CNN Business. "Having the extent of these interim tariffs, I mean essentially they will close the market to Australian bottled wine, to premium wine, in China. There's no way that we can compete at those levels."
    China's Commerce Ministry announced Friday that its decision was made after finding preliminary evidence of dumping. Australian officials have bitterly protested the move, saying that China has been unable to provide proof.
    The wine war is taking place against the backdrop of a wider deterioration in relations. Australia has upset China this year by calling for an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Beijing later targeted Canberra over trade, namely by suspending some imports of beef and slapping heavy tariffs on barley.
    The tariffs on wine, which took effect on Saturday, have forced businesses to scramble. After the announcement, some container ships that were en route to mainland China had to turn back to Australia, according to Battaglene.
    "Orders are being canceled, orders are being suspended," he said. "No one's willing to ... take extra import duties just to get it through customs. Essentially the market will be closed to us."
    On Monday, Australia's leading winemaker, Treasury Wine Estates (TSRYF) (TWE), announced a contingency plan. It said it would start redirecting its shipments away from China to other markets, such as the United States, Europe and other Asian countries, after finding out its products would be slapped with tariffs of 169.3%.
    Some of the wine TWE is considering reallocating had already arrived at a port in Shanghai, according to CEO Tim Ford. "We will reassess [what to do with] that product," he said on an analyst call Monday.
    "We are extremely disappointed to find our business, our partners' businesses and the Australian wine industry in this position," Ford added. "Our attention's very clearly on building our business outside of China over the next period of time."
    The plan wasn't enough to reassure investors. TWE shares closed down 6.9% in Sydney on Monday, following an 11.3% drop on Friday, when the tariffs were announced.

    China is by far the biggest importer of Australian wine, according to Wine Australia, a trade organization backed by the country's government. In the most recent financial year, which ended this September, mainland China alone made up 39% of Australia's total wine exports by value, the group said.
    Going forward, more "Australian winemakers will now be forced to consider alternative markets for export sales," Australian Grape and Wine said in a statement.
      On Monday, Ford called on the Australian government to help businesses find a solution.
      "Left unresolved, there will be a significant impact," he said. "Things may change, and we'll deal with that as they change, but we're sort of dealing with the cards that we know at the moment, without a strategy of hope if you like. Because a strategy of hope is not a very smart strategy."
