China Slams Pompeo’s Hysteria


China Slams Pompeo's Hysteria

by Stephen Lendman

Pompeo's reign of terror as Trump regime bully-in-chief can't end a moment too soon.

In a stinging editorial and accompanying piece, China's Global Times (GT) rightfully called Pompeo a "lunatic," sharing my own view about far and away the worst secretary of state in US history.

Throughout his time at state, he operated as an international wrecking ball against world peace, stability, and cooperative relations among member states — notions he deplores.

According to China's Global Times (GT) on Sunday, during the previous day alone, "Pompeo posted more than 30 (hostile) tweets…"

Nearly all "were directed against China." His actions throughout his time in Washington provide ample evidence to pronounce him criminally "insane" and a global menace.

In recent weeks and months, he's gone all-out to make it hard or impossible for Biden/Harris to undo damage done to relations with other countries.

On his own, given Trump's focus on dealing with phony accusations against him during his final days in office, Pompeo "target(ed) China, Cuba, Iran," and other countries recklessly.

"A normal government would not" go where he's gone, said GT. His actions are self-serving.

His "crazy show is a manifestation of the extreme, irrational and irresponsible China policy of the US in the past few years."

"It is beyond everyone's expectation that the US system could have allowed such serious political destruction to take place during a power transition period." 

"Without any obstruction, Pompeo's personal emotions are masquerading as the diplomatic proclamations of the US…"

What's gone on unacceptably would seem "like a bad joke," if not so deadly serious. 

His reckless actions are inflicting long-lasting damage to bilateral and multilateral relations.

GT's hope for Biden/Harris to reverse Trump's wrecking ball policies is virtually certain to be dashed on the rocks of US imperial aims by both right wings of its war party.

Candidates, especially ones in the West for high office, make numerous popular promises on the stump to be largely or entirely ignored if elected.

A Biden/Harris regime is virtually certain to be pro-war, anti-peace and stability, hostile toward all nations free from US control, pro-corporate predation, and indifferent toward the rights and needs of ordinary people at home and abroad.

That's the cold, hard reality well understood by China and other nations on the US target list for regime change.

GT: "Beijing will not accept restarting China-US relations based on the series of anti-China decisions made by Pompeo."

"Neither will Chinese society." 

"If policies such as sanctions on Chinese companies released in the last few days (and earlier) are implemented and US officials hav(e) no restrictions in engaging with Taiwan becomes the new starting point for the Biden(/Harris) to deal with the Taiwan question, the China-US relationship is bound to suffer a larger crisis than it experienced in the past four years."

"Pompeo is piling up troubles for (Biden/Harris') foreign policies, which is resistance in a disguised form and whose destructive impact is no less than the Capitol Hill riots." 

"To put it more precisely, Pompeo is the savage destroyer of the transitional tradition and rules of US foreign policy." 

"He is more evil than the rioters at Capitol Hill."

He's "jeopardizing…world peace and stability." 

"If the world descends headlong into a geopolitical disaster one day, Pompeo will be revealed as the most infamous among its initiators."

Separately, GT slammed Pompeo's "hysteria" wrapped in Big Lies and mass deception.

International Relations Professor Shen Yi slammed what he called Pompeo's "psychological hysteria."

It's because of his "huge failure(s)" in office.

Some EU officials refused to meet with him in recent days.

Former Trump regime secretary of state Rex Tillerson called his tenure a geopolitical disaster.  

On Friday, China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said he'll no longer waste time rebutting his anti-China war of words and actions.

UK political and international relations analyst Tom Fowdy said the following:

"What (Pompeo) is doing now is pushing an endless cycle of self-praising and congratulatory tweets to bump up his own legacy and achievements in office in looking toward further political goals."

He's wrecking his own political ambitions by poisoning chances for Biden/Harris to undo the enormous damage he's done to US multilateral relations.

Largely because of what he's done on the global stage, he's leaving a legacy of out-of-control chaos that risks international disputes becoming conflicts.

World Economic Forum January Davos Agenda


World Economic Forum January Davos Agenda

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Founded in 1971, the Geneva-based World Economic Forum (WEF) meets annually in Davos, Switzerland.

It brings together top business and political leaders, along with likeminded pro-New World Order economists and pseudo-journalists.

Calling itself "an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industry agendas" is cover for its diabolical agenda. 

The WEF's Great Reset about to be formally rolled out aims to establish ruler-serf societies worldwide.

It wants ordinary people exploited serve the privileged few worldwide that goes beyond what Orwell and Huxley imagined.

It's a diabolical scheme promoted by the WEF's executive chairman Klaus Schwab — a dystopian nightmare wrapped in deceptive equitable socioeconomic rhetoric.

Made-in-the-USA covid (renamed seasonal flu/influenza) that unleashed lockdowns, quarantines, social distancing, and harmful to human health mask-wearing caused unprecedented economic collapse in the US, West, and elswhere.

Events of last year — continuing in 2021 with no end of them in prospect — were planned by dark forces before unleashed on unsuspecting billions of people worldwide.

For Schwab and likeminded extremists, what's going on is a "unique window of opportunity" for global leaders to reshape "global relations…national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models, and the management of a global commons…"

Instead of serving "the dignity" and interests "of every human being," it intends exploiting them.

The Great Reset is an updated new world order, a diabolical socioeconomic "revamp" worldwide.

If achieved, life as once existed will be replaced by Dante's Hell.

According to upcoming late January Davos Agenda propaganda:

"The (covid) pandemic has demonstrated that no institution or individual alone can address the economic, environmental, social and technological challenges of our complex, interdependent world (sic)."

"The pandemic has accelerated systemic changes that were apparent before its inception (sic)."

 

"The fault lines that emerged in 2020 now appear as critical crossroads in 2021 (sic)." 

"The time to rebuild trust (sic)) and to make crucial choices is fast approaching as the need to reset priorities and the urgency to reform systems (sic) grow stronger around the world (sic)."

"The Davos Agenda is a pioneering (sic) mobilization of global leaders to shape the principles, policies and partnerships needed in this challenging new context (sic)." 

"It is essential for leaders from all walks of life to work together virtually for a more inclusive, cohesive and sustainable future as soon as possible in 2021 (sic)."

Seven diabolical themes that pretend to be beneficial for societies and their people are worlds apart from what's claimed.

They include the following:

"How to save the planet" by plundering it for maximum profit-making.

Exploitive economies masquerading as "fairer" ones. 

"Tech" for pure evil called "good."

"Socit(ies) & future of work" to be  under ruler-serf rules worldwide.

"Better business" by maximum exploitive harshness.

Unhealthy "futures" pretending to be the other way around.

"Beyond geopolitics" pretending that "we're all in this together."

Calling for "nations…to change" is code language for promoting abolition of sovereign rights according to the rule of law.

Late January Davos Agenda will formally launch exploitive Great Reset policies to be exposed, condemned and opposed.

A Final Comment

Great Reset New World Order policies include digital mass-surveillance worldwide.

It calls for monitoring virtually everything about our daily lives to control them.

Pretending to support "sustainable development" and "stakeholder capitalism" is polar opposite what's planned.

Great Reset policies aim to more greatly empower wealth, power and privileged interests at the expense of ordinary people worldwide.

It promotes global control by and exploitation of most people by their privileged few masters.

Great Reset pusher Schwab called for "not letting (made-in-the-USA covid and economic collapse) go to waste."

Selling it involves mass deception because understanding what's planned would assure mass-rejection.

Nothing intended will improve public health, welfare, safety and societies fit to live in — just the opposite.

The WEF's slogan "build back better" is mass deception to disguise what's diabolically planned.

Reject and resist are the only options.

The alternative is Great Reset New World Order enslavement by a higher power that's hostile to a safe and and fit to live in world.

Martin Luther King Day 2021


Martin Luther King Day 2021

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

January 18 is MLK Day, a notable figure I remember well for his civil rights activism from the mid-1950s until his state-sponsored April 4, 1968 assassination.

Notably it came a year to the day after his memorable April 4, 1967 Beyond Vietnam: a Time to Break the Silence address.

For over half a century, Big Media suppressed his hard-hitting indictment of US aggression.

Then in Southeast Asia, today it's in multiple theaters worldwide by hot and other means.

MLK cut to the chase by his following no punches pulled remarks, saying:

America is "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today." 

It's "on the wrong side of a world revolution."

"We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence, or violent co-annihilation."

"We must move past indecision to action." 

"If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight."

Silence is "betrayal." 

He called war in Vietnam "an enemy of the poor."

"(I)t should be incandescently clear that no one who has any concern for the integrity and life (in) America today can ignore the present war." 

"If America's soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read Vietnam."

"This madness must cease…We must stop now…"

"We must continue to raise our voices if our nation persists in its perverse ways in Vietnam."

He called for a "revolution of values, (including) declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism."

He ended by quoting James Russell Lowell (1819 – 1891), saying:

"Once to every man and nation

Comes the moment to decide…"

"In the strife of truth and falsehood,

For the good or evil side…"

That time is now, said MLK over half a century ago.

His dream remains unfulfilled. Civil rights gotten from his activism are long gone — for people of color in the US and most others, increasing police ruthlessness replacing them.

MLK was a Baptist minister, political activist, civil rights champion, renowned orator, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

He was one of the few awarded the prize who deserved it in stark contrast to warmongers like Henry Kissinger, Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin, Obama, and numerous other unworthy recipients.

MLK knew he lived on the edge by his anti-war and other activism for a nation safe and fit to live.

Over half a century after his assassination, things are far worse in the US today than then.

They're heading for full-blown tyranny if not actively challenged in the streets to counter what otherwise may arrive sooner than most activists believe — wrapped in the American flag as part of state-sponsored, Big Media supported, mass deception.

MLK called US militarists and warmakers "criminals," America the world's most villainous nation.

He praised "individual(s) who break a law that conscience tells him is unjust and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law."

He practiced nonviolent civil disobedience, not revolution, no matter how just the latter. 

He believed that fighting injustice requires civil action.

Defending it on moral grounds, he said "the time is always ripe to do right" — also saying:

"I am convinced that noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good." 

He championed "creative protest." 

Passivity is no option in the face of injustice, he believed.

According to human rights lawyer William Pepper in his book titled The Plot to Kill King and two other books on what happened and more, the conspiracy to assassinate him was instigated by then-FBI director J. Edgar Hoover.

In his earlier article on what Pepper revealed, Craig McKee said the following:

Along with Hoover, "the US military,  the Memphis Police Department, and 'Dixie Mafia' crime figures in Memphis, Tennessee" were involved in his assassination.

Innocent patsy/fall guy James Earl Ray had nothing to do with it.

He was framed in similar fashion to how Lee Harvey Oswald was falsely accused of killing JFK and Sirhan Sirhan wrongfully blamed for RFK's assassination.

All of the above and much more was buried by Big Media, as well as not explaining that MLK was alive after taken to St. Joseph's Hospital for treatment to save him.

The most stunning revelation in Peppers book on the plot to kill MLK was that a hospital doctor responsible for trying to save him was involved in taking his life.

Pepper learned that hospital "chief of surgery Dr. Breen Bland enter(ed) the emergency room with two men in suits," McKee explained, adding: 

"Seeing doctors working on King, Bland commanded, 'Stop working on the nigger and let him die!" 

"Now, all of you get out of here, right now. Everybody get out."

McKee also reported that Pepper learned that if MLK survived the shooting, he was to be taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, nowhere else.

Indeed the plot to assassinate MLK had a fallback plan to eliminate him when hospitalized if gunshots didn't end his life.

Based on what Pepper learned, apparently that's what happened — vital information Big Media don't ever touch.

Surgeon Breen Bland was quoted by a source who heard him say that "if (MLK is) not killed by (gunfire), just make sure he gets to St. Joseph's Hospital, and we'll make sure that he doesn't leave."

In his trilogy, Pepper included hard evidence that Ray didn't kill MLK. 

Oswald had nothing to do with JFK's state-sponsored assassination, and Sirhan Sirhan was innocent of the false charge against him.

Oswald was assassinated to silence him.

Sirhan Sirhan remains imprisoned at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego County, California — for a crime he didn't commit.

Imprisoned for 99 years + one added for good measure, Ray died in 1998 at aged-70.

They and the US public were denied justice for unlawfully framing them and killing three redoubtable Americans.

What happened over half a century ago delivered major body blows to free and open societies that no longer exist in America or elsewhere in the West.

CIA/NED Asset/Convicted Felon Navalny Arrested in Moscow


CIA/NED Asset/Convicted Felon Navalny Arrested in Moscow

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman

Alexey Navalny long ago betrayed his country for benefits afforded him.

A Western darling, convicted embezzler, self-serving opportunist, and longtime CIA/NED asset, his now closed so-called Anti-Corruption Foundation (ACF) was a front for his dubious activities.

According to Sputnik News correspondent Evgeny Mikhaylov last summer, scandals surrounding Navalny got him to close his ACF.

They include "a criminal probe into the suspected laundering of around 1 billion roubles ($15.3 million), obtained by the foundation via criminal means."

Last summer's ruckus over his alleged poisoning by a deadly novichok nerve agent — able to kill anyone exposed in minutes — became a pretext for stepped up Russia bashing.

Navalny is very much alive and well, his illness diagnosed as a metabolic disorder by Russian doctors in Omsk. 

Three days of exhaustive tests found no novichok or other toxins in his system.

Treatment stabilizing him by their efforts enabled his safe transport to Berlin for further treatment and recuperation.

Had he been poisoned by novichok as falsely claimed, his death would have been near-instantaneous.

Around five months after arriving in Berlin, Navalny returned to Moscow on Sunday.

On arrival he was detained by Federal Penitentiary Service agents, a statement saying:

"(O)n probation, (he's) been wanted since December 29, 2020, for multiple probation violations."

The agency wants his suspended sentence for criminal activities replaced by a real one.

Earlier he was convicted on multiple embezzlement charges.

Last December, Russian Investigative Committee spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko, said the following:

"The Main Investigation Department of the Russian Investigative Committee has collected sufficient data, on the basis of which a criminal case has been initiated against Alexey Navalny and other persons…under Part 4 of Article 159 of the Russian Criminal Code"— pertaining to large-scale fraud.

Millions of dollars raised by his ACF were "spent…for personal" reasons.

Included was "the acquisition of private property, material values ​​and payment of expenses (for) recreation abroad," as well as for other purposes. 

"Thus, the funds collected from citizens were stolen."

"(A)t present, investigative actions are being conducted to establish all the circumstances of the crime, as well as other persons involved in its commission."

In response to incoming Biden/Harris regime national security advisor Jake Sullivan's unacceptable demand for Navalny's "immediate release," Russia's Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova slammed "foreign public figures who are rushing to post pre-prepared comments," adding:

"Have respect for international law, do not interfere with the national law of (other) sovereign countries, and deal with your own domestic problems." 

"Russia has registered multiple violations of the probation terms by Mr. Alexey Navalny during the year 2020."

Several EU officials also unacceptably interfered in Russia's internal affairs by calling for Navalny's release.

Amnesty International shamefully called him a "prisoner of conscience," ignoring his fifth column and other criminal activities.

Though his ACF was closed last year, its office apparently remains open.

According to his spokeswoman  Kira Yarmysh, the office "is being searched…staffers…allowed to leave for now."

Last year, Russia's Justice Ministry accused Navalny's ACF and other so-called NGOs of operating as foreign agents, receiving funding from abroad.

According to Russia's Investigative Committee (IC) that's involved in pursuing a criminal case against Navalny, he and other ACF members received large amounts of cash in rubles and other foreign currencies from January 2016 to December 2018, adding:

Cash gotten was "of criminal origin." Navalny and accomplices are accused of "launder(ing)" funds received for personal use.

Numerous illicit "accounts" belonging to Navalny and others connected to him were discovered.

He remains in custody, pending a court ruling on his status after breaching terms of his suspended sentence for criminal activities. 

Vladimir Putin and his spokesman Dmitry Peskov earlier accused him of involvement with US intelligence community agencies against Russia.

Last Thursday, Russia's Federal Penitentiary Service said "convict A.A. Navalny was put on the wanted list with instructions that he be detained when his whereabouts were established." 

Russia's "Federal Penal Correction Service in Moscow is obliged to take all actions to detain the offender before a court decision to replace the suspended sentence with a real one."

Days earlier before returning to Moscow, he again repeated the Big Lie about being poisoned by novichok on orders of Vladimir Putin.

In the days or weeks ahead, Russia's judicial system will rule on whether he'll be imprisoned for a reported three years for breaching probation terms.

If his earlier suspended sentence is criminalized for trial —  along with whether an ongoing probe on alleged "large scale fraud" results in new charges — he potentially faces years more behind bars.

Russia Bashing Once Again Rears its Ugly Head Again


Russia Bashing Once Again Rears its Ugly Head

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman

Time and again, Russia and other nations free from US imperial control are unjustifiably bashed for all sorts of contrived and disorted reasons.

As usual among Big Media players, the self-styled newspaper of record NYT took the lead once again in shamefully slamming Russia for arresting longtime CIA/NED asset/convicted felon Alexey Navalny on arrival in Moscow on Sunday.

What's going on is discussed in a same day article on my website (stephenlendman.org), so I won't go into detail on what's explained.

What's key is that Navalny's arrest fully complied with Russian law — its action polar opposite how the US, West and Israel operate extrajudicially in pursuing their diabolical agendas.

Navalny unlawfully breached his probation terms and faces serious corruption charges, hard evidence likely to convict him at trial.

All of the above isn't good enough for the Times, inventing another unjustifiable reason for Russia bashing to its disgrace.

A Times piece overflowed with its customary litany of bald-faced Big Lies, saying:

Navalny "returned (to Moscow) five months after a near-fatal nerve-agent attack (sic)."

"(H)e and Western officials say was an assassination attempt by the Russian state (sic)."

His illness had nothing to do with a novichok "nerve agent" or any other toxin — nothing to do with a phony accusation of Kremlin involvement.

His illness was from a metabolic disorder likely related to one or more other health issues affecting him.

No evidence whatever suggests Russian responsibility for what happened last August.

Claims otherwise were and remain bald-faced Big Lies.

The Times: Navalny's arrest reflects "Russia's rising domestic discontent and the Kremlin's jitters over it (sic)."

A recent All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM) poll showed that Putin remains the country's most popular politician.

A poll conducted from September 25 – 30, 2020 had his approval rating at 69%. At yearend 2020, it was slightly lower at 65%.

According to Gallup, only Jack Kennedy's "average approval rating" was higher at 70%.

Dwight Eisenhower's was 65%, compared to GHW Bush's 60.9%, Ronald Reagan's 52.8%, Bill Clinton's 55.1%, GW Bush's 49.4%, Obama's 47.9%, and Trump's 41%. 

The Times quoted a Navalny associate's Big Lie, falsely claiming:

He's "been kidnapped (on arrival in Moscow – sic)."He is in danger (sic)."

"He is in the hands of people who have already tried to kill him (sic)."

Incoming Biden/Harris regime national security advisor Jake Sullivan's Big Lie was also quoted, falsely claiming:

"The Kremlin's attacks on Mr. Navalny are not just a violation of human rights (sic), but an affront to the Russian people who want their voices heard (sic)."

Russophobe Pompeo chimed in with his own Russia bashing remark, saying:

"Navalny is not the problem (sic). We demand his immediate and unconditional release."

Separately on the State Department website, he falsely claimed the move was "to silence Navalny and other opposition figures and independent voices (sic)," adding:

"We urge the Russian government to provide a level playing field for all political parties and candidates seeking to compete in the electoral process (sic)."

Russia's free and open society is polar opposite growing dystopian tyranny in the US and other Western states — because of diabolical figures like Pompeo and propaganda major media instead of the real thing.

The Times repeated its own Big Lie claim about Putin's "ebb(ing) popularity" — ignoring his yearend 65% approval rating.

A same day Times editorial on Navalny headlined "The Extraordinary Courage of Aleksei Navalny (sic)" was typical broadsheet mass deception about a convicted felon/fifth column figure operating in cahoots with his CIA handlers against his own country.

Saying he's been in Germany since August "because President Vladimir Putin's political goons had poisoned him, and had failed to kill him" is more clear evidence of utter rubbish filling Times editions — in lieu of "all the news that's fit to print" long ago banned on its pages.

Claiming he was arrested on arrival in Moscow "on a trumped-up charge" failed to sweep his criminality under the rug.

Saying that taking him into custody shows "the corruption of Russia's rulers" failed to reinvent how Russia under Putin respects the rule of law —polar opposite how the US, West and Israel operate extrajudicially.

Claiming his earlier conviction on indisputable embezzlement charges was "phony" fell flat.

Saying he's a "national hero" ignored his low approval rating in Russia — earlier at 3%.

A recent poll on who Russians would support for president if elections were held the next day found Navalny's support at 2%.

Putin overwhelmingly outdistances other potential challenger's to Russia's highest office in popularity.

Yet Times editors absurdly said the following:

"The option Mr. Putin is least likely to consider would be to confront Mr. Navalny openly and fairly at the ballot box…"

He likely faces more time behind bars for embezzlement and corruption.

If free and able to run for president, he wouldn't dare try, knowing how resoundingly and embarrassingly he'd be trounced.

Dozens of Deaths from Covid Vaxxing


Dozens of Deaths from Covid Vaxxing

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman

Virtually everything reported about covid, face masks, PCR tests, social distancing, and vaccines by Big Government, Pharma, and their Big Media press agents are bald-faced Big Lies or distortions.

An all-out mass deception campaign has been ongoing throughout most of 2020, continuing in the new year, to manipulate the public mind with rubbish that's harmful to our health, well-being, safety and future.

Vaccines don't protect. Too often, they cause diseases they're promoted to protect against, along with risking illness from numerous others. 

High-risk, experimental Pfizer and Moderna DNA altering mRNA vaccines are especially dangerous.

The risk contraction of serious illnesses near-or-longer-term.

The especially risk death, notably to the elderly and infirm.

What government officials, Pharma, and Big Media suppress about the dangers of these vaccines is essential for everyone to know.

Around a month after mass-vaxxing for covid (aka seasonal flu/influenza) in the US began, at least 55 individuals died.

That's what is known. Perhaps the true number is much higher to be learned later after widespread damage was done.

If dozens or more Americans died from vaxxing already, will thousand more suffer the same fate, notably among the elderly and infirm?

After all-out brainwashing to push mass-vaxxing, notably by Big Media, will what's coming unleash a tsunami of serious illnesses and deaths ahead — including among normal adults who'd be alive and well if not vaxxed.

According to the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — that greatly downplays numbers of adverse health events — 55 Americans already died from covid vaxxing.

VAERS is disturbingly inaccurate. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s Children's Health Defense:

"VAERS is an abysmal failure, (a) designed to fail" system."

It lets "regulators and industry (maintain) their pretense that current vaccine risk profiles are acceptable."

"A 2010 study funded by HHS concluded that VAERS captured 'fewer than 1% of injuries.' " 

"In other words, the actual injury rates from mandated vaccines are more than 100x (greater than) what HHS has been telling the public!"

"The 2010 HHS study found that the true risk for serious adverse events was 26/1,000, or one in 37."

The high risk applies to potential numbers ahead from covid vaxxing.

For Pfizer and Moderna experimental, inadequately tested, genetically modifying mRNA technology covid vaccines, the risk of serious illnesses and deaths may be much higher.

What's already known is alarming. What's yet to be known may reveal catastrophically large numbers of people harmed from mass-vaxxing for covid.

Even former FDA chief, incoming Biden/Harris regime chief science advisor Dr. David Kessler acknowledged that VAERS doesn't work as claimed.

The VAERS website admits that reported adverse events "often lack details and sometimes can have information that contains errors."

By letter to Kessler in December, Kennedy said the following:

"I am writing on behalf of Children's Health Defense to request that you consider the long-overdue need for a comprehensive, high-integrity system to monitor adverse outcomes following" mass-vaxxing for covid.

"(A)s someone who has repeatedly called attention to the structural deficiencies of our nation's (VAERS) drug adverse event (system), you are uniquely qualified to articulate (its) shortcomings and recommend badly needed improvements."

VAERS "co-administered by FDA and CDC since 1990 is a well-documented public failure."

"You have said yourself that the vaccine injury reports received by FDA 'represent only a fraction of the serious adverse events' that occur." 

In your earlier "Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), "you noted that MEDWatch would not affect VAERS nor attempt to remedy underreporting of adverse events associated with vaccines." 

"At the time, even vaccine manufacturers were estimating (confidentially) 'a fifty-fold underreporting of (vaccine) adverse events.' "

Double this number is more accurate. Mass-vaxxing for covid poses an unacceptably high threat to public health and well-being.

ZeroHedge.com reported that large numbers of "calls (are urging) suspension of the use of mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines" because of alarming numbers of reported deaths.

Norwegian health authorities said covid vaccines may be too high-risk for elderly individuals.

Pfizer's mRNA vaccine is being used in the country.

A company statement downplayed numbers of deaths in Norway after vaxxing, saying:

"(T)he number of incidents so far is not alarming, and in line with expectations" — showing indifference toward public health and well-being, along with mass deception about the high risk its covid vaccine poses.

Along with increasing numbers of reported deaths from covid vaxxing, they've been thousands of reported adverse events, including life-threatening ones, in the US alone.

They've also been about two dozen reported cases of vaxxed individuals becoming permanently disabled, along with numerous emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

RT reported that over a dozen vaxxed Israelis experienced facial paralysis.

As of mid-January, over 10 million Americans were vaxxed for covid.

CDC National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases director Nancy Messonnier's claim that Pfizer and Moderna covid vaccines "are safe and effective" is part of a state-sponsored, Big Media mass deception campaign.

It's more evidence that we're being lied to by indifferent to public health and well-being government officials and their media press agents.

If mass-vaxxing for continues unchecked in the US and elsewhere without interruption — what's most likely — the toll on public health and welfare may increase exponentially.

Fortress Washington Occupied and Militarized


Fortress Washington Occupied and Militarized

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

What's going on in the nation's capital is unprecedented.

Around 25,000 troops, unknown numbers of secret service agents, other federal security forces, and local police turned the city into a blockaded armed camp ahead of illegitimate transition of power on January 20.

The nation's capital resembles occupied Baghdad's Green Zone that's half-way around the world from Washington DC.

Seven-foot-high non-scalable barricades topped with razor wire surround the Capitol and various federal buildings.

Thousands of heavily armed National Guard troops and other security forces — with orders to use lethal force against alleged threats — guard the city's perimeter and virtually everything important inside.

Bridges into the city and National Mall will be closed ahead of Wednesday's transition of power. 

At checkpoints, IDs of occupants in cars, no other modes of transport,  or on foot entering or leaving the city are checked.

The Military Times reported that "National Guard troops from (virtually all US (states) continue to pour into DC for…security."

Army General Daniel Hokanson, head of the National Guard Bureau, is commanding what's going on. 

Deployment of troops was authorized for up to 30 days for transition of power preparations, what's planned for January 20 and its aftermath.

The Washington Post, located in the city on K Street NW, said it's "closed off like never before," adding:

"(T)he Secret Service has launched a massive security operation."

"Vehicle traffic in much of the city will be prohibited or limited to residents and businesses only." 

"Metro is shuttering stations in the city's core and near the Mall." 

"Street closures will continue through Thursday, and are subject to change at the discretion of the Secret Service."

Mayor Muriel E. Bowser noted the unprecedented interruption of daily life for city residents and businesses while all of the above continues.

Saying "we are in unchartered waters" greatly over-dramatizes preparations for alleged threats that are highly unlikely to happen unless one or more state-sponsored false flags are planned to further vilify Trump and his supporters.

No reported intelligence or other information suggests a serious enough or any threat to warrant over-the-top preparations — notably 25,000 National Guard troops from all states.

No explanation was given for what's going on at enormous taxpayer expense — other than non-specific remarks.

The best FBI director Christopher Wray would offer was saying the following:

"We are seeing an extensive amount of concerning online chatter — that's the best way I would describe it — about a number of events surrounding the inauguration" with no further elaboration.

His remark suggested no organized or other planned threat(s) to inauguration day events — likely because there are none expected.

According to one observer who walked around the perimeter of barricades twice this week, it's nearly impossible for any unauthorized vehicle or person to get anywhere near close to where inaugural ceremonies will be conducted.

At Secret Service discretion, closures, barriers, and other preparations are subject to change.

A Final Comment

On Friday, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser's remark was an Orwellian shot across the bow for what may be coming ahead nationwide, saying: 

"(O)ur entire country is going to have to deal with how our intelligence apparatus, security apparatus at every level deal with a very real and present threat to our nation (sic)."

Her remark indicates a new abnormal for the city that perhaps is coming to the US nationwide.

The only "threat to our nation" is state-sponsored.

A free and open society appears on the chopping block for elimination — totalitarian rule enforced by police state harshness appears coming to replace it.

Blasting Lies Ahead of Induction into the Hall of Infamy


Blasting Lies Ahead of Induction into the Hall of Infamy

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman

Pompeo's psychopathologically

challenged mind doesn't work like normal people.

Numerous examples of dissocial personality disorder and other abnormalities make him hugely dangerous — notably for his 2024 presidential ambitions.

The possibility of wanting to squeeze the nuclear trigger in this role at nations on his target list for elimination should set off alarm bells in world capitals.

Setting the world ablaze against invented US enemies could follow on his watch if ascends to the highest US office.

He's one of Washington's most recklessly dangerous psychopaths, likely plotting his next moves after leaving office as Trump regime State Department bully-in-chief.

Days earlier he addressed the national establishment media press club.

Why they let him in their front door, it's for them to explain. A ticking bomb, he's unsafe wherever showing up.

In just societies, he'd top their most wanted list.

His remarks invented a nonexistent "Iran-al-Qaeda axis (sic)."

There's no ambiguity about the jihadist group's origin — made-in-the-USA like ISIS and likeminded terrorist groups.

Recruited, trained, funded, armed, and directed by US dark forces (the Pentagon, CIA, etc.), they operate as US imperial proxy forces in nations where deployed in the Middle East, Central Asia, and elsewhere.

In response to Pompeo's litany of bald-faced Big Lies discussed below, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh set the record straight as follows, saying:

"From time to time, Iran's foes — the United States and Israel — try to shirk responsibility for the criminal acts of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups in the region and link Iran to such outfits by lying and leaking false information to the media," adding:

"Although the United States has in the past spared no effort to level false accusations against the Islamic Republic of Iran, this approach has become a routine in the current US (regime), and the White House has tried to take further steps to implement its scare-mongering tactic against Iran by repeating such accusations" the world community knows are maliciously false.

An earlier fake news NYT Times report falsely claimed al-Qaeda's second-in-command Abu Muhammad al-Masri — aka Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah — was living in Tehran when assassinated by Israeli-connected agents last August.

Iran is a mortal enemy of al-Queda, ISIS, and likeminded terrorist groups — the US their creator and sponsor, NATO and Israel supporting them.

As Trump regime CIA director from January 2017 through most of April 2018, Pompeo was directly involved in funding and directing their terrorist activities in multiple countries.

As State Department bully-in-chief, he pretends otherwise, including in his disinformation press club remarks fooling no one.

Pompeo: Iran and al-Qaeda are allies, "not enemies (sic)."

Iran is "al-Qaeda's new home base (sic)."

"We ignore this Iran-al-Qaeda nexus at our own peril (sic)."

"We had al-Qa'ida on the ropes after 9/11." Bald-faced Big Lies by Obama earlier suggested the same thing.

Pompeo: "American resolve (sic), American ingenuity (sic), American leadership (sic), and…raw American military strength (sic) drove al-Qaeda  to search for a safer haven, and they found one (in) Iran (sic)."

The above dissembling is typical of how Pompeo operates in most all public remarks — truth-telling nowhere in sight.

It gets worse. Pompeo reinvented reality since the 1990s, falsely claiming:

"Al-Qaeda carried on a relationship with Tehran for nearly three decades (sic)."

Can anyone take this thug who's been impersonating a diplomat unsuccessfully since April 2018 seriously?

On all things related to Iran, China, Russia, and other nations unwilling to bow and scrape to Washington, his reinvention of them wouldn't pass for a grade D Hollywood script.

Once a psychopathological liar, always one. It's part of Pompeo's diabolical DNA.

Next Wednesday he'll return to private life to plot whatever new high crimes he has in mind if returns to public life again.

Hopefully never again! 

Hopely his long overdue day of reckoning arrives full-force to hold him accountable for crimes of war and against humanity too egregious to ignore.

Phony Claims of an Iranian Nuclear Weapons Program


Phony Claims of an Iranian Nuclear Weapons Threat

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The Wall Street Journal joined the phony anti-Iran nuclear weapons threat chorus that was debunked countless times before.

Yet it remains one of many Big Lies that won't die against nations free from US imperial control.

Twice this week, the Journal pushed the nonexistent threat.

"How close is Tehran to developing nuclear weapons," it asked?  

Ignoring what its ruling authorities banned long ago, wanting these weapons eliminated everywhere before they eliminate us, the Journal falsely claimed an Iranian threat that doesn't exist.

Further Big Lies followed.

Claiming Iran "repeatedly violated the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, reducing the time it would need to produce a nuclear weapon" is utter rubbish — the Journal sounding like Netanyahu and other Israeli extremists.

Unlike the US, Britain, France and Germany, Iran's nuclear program remains in compliance with the JCPOA and NPT.

Its uranium enriched to a higher level and related activities are permitted by the JCPOA's Articles 26 and 36 when other signatories breach their obligations.

Unmentioned by the Journal and other establishment media is that Israel is nuclear armed and dangerous.

The Jewish state — together with US-dominated NATO — pose an unparalleled threat to world peace and stability.

In stark contrast, Iran hasn't attacked another nation in centuries.

Threatening none now, it vows only to retaliate forcefully if attacked by a foreign power — its legitimate self-defense right under international law.

Iran's nuclear program has no military component. No evidence suggests it wants one because none exists.

Even in its annual assessments of global threats, the US intelligence community affirms Tehran's legitimate nuclear activities.

According to the Journal, Iran's announced move to enrich uranium "at 20% purity cross(ed) a red line…its biggest…breach of the 2015" JCPOA.

Iran legitimately increased uranium to its pre-agreement level.

At the same time, it stressed that if the US and E3 countries fulfill their breached JCPOA obligations — along with rescinding illegally imposed sanctions — it'll reverse recent moves in the interest of mutual cooperation.

Well into its article, the Journal admitted that uranium enriched to at least 90% purity is required for nuclear weapons development and production.

In this and a same-day article, the Journal falsely claimed the following:

"Iran has taken a significant new step toward possible atomic-weapons production (by) starting work on an assembly line to manufacture…equipment it will use to produce uranium metal…"

Iran's representative to the Vienna-based international organizations Kazem Gharibabadi notified the IAEA of its intention, explaining:

"R&D activities related to the design of an improved type of fuel for the Tehran Research Reactor has started." 

"Natural uranium will be used to produce uranium metal in the first stage."

Activities begun followed approved legislation by Iran's Parliament called Strategic Action Plan to Counter Sanctions.

It's also about safeguarding the country's national security and related interests.

The process begun has nothing to do with producing nuclear weapons.

When completed, Iran will be a world leader in producing new nuclear fuels for commercial and related uses.

The Journal falsely said that this "development brings Iran closer to crossing the line between nuclear operations (for) civilian use…and nuclear-weapons work (sic)."

It does nothing of the sort.

Returning to the JCPOA by the US is not an Iranian priority.

Its legitimate concern is for the incoming Biden/Harris regime to lift illegal US sanctions, a flagrant UN Charter breach.

Iran seeks cooperative relations with other countries according to the rule of law, confrontation with none.

No evidence suggests an intention by its ruling authorities to develop and produce nuclear weapons.

Instead of explaining the above, the Journal, other establishment media, and hostile-to-the-country hardline US official maintain the myth of an Iranian threat that includes developing nukes.

Reality is polar opposite this rubbish.

The US, NATO, Israel, and their imperial partners threaten world peace and stability, not Iran

Its ruling authorities govern by a higher standard — according to the rule of law.

China Slams Unlawful US Sanctions, Vows Retaliation


China Slams Unlawful US sanctions, Vows Retaliation

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman

US regimes use sanctions as weapons of war by other means.

Whenever imposed by one nation on others, they're flagrant UN Charter breaches.

Yet time and again, the US uses them to try weakening targeted governments and impose hardships on their people.

The policy consistently fails but keeps repeating with disturbing regularity.

It's part of what the scourge of imperialism is all about.

When unelected Biden/Harris replace Trump this week, what's going on won't miss a beat.

It includes governance of, by, and for privileged interests exclusively at home and exploiting ordinary people ruthlessly — along with forever wars by hot and other means abroad against nations free from US control. 

In response to newly imposed sanctions on Chinese officials and other unacceptable Trump regime actions against Beijing, its Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong's Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) vowed not to let them go unanswered.

Expressing "great indignation and firm opposition" to what happened, HKSAR vowed retaliation, saying:

"Any interference and sanctions would only make the Chinese people more united and only be countered resolutely," adding:

The won't "shake China's firm resolve in safeguarding its national sovereignty, security and development rights."

Newly imposed Trump regime sanctions are "insane, shameless and despicable."

Hong Kong officials expressed support for whatever countermeasures Beijing uses to retaliate against Washington.

In dealings with other nations, the US operates extrajudicially.

Expert on Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Li Xiaobing said with transition of power approaching in Washington, its foreign actions are "weakening."

Since last summer alone, the Trump regime illegally imposed sanctions on dozens of Chinese officials, including HKSAR chief executive Carrie Lam and 14 Beijing lawmakers, among many others.

Imposing them extrajudicially is a sign of weakness, not strength.

Separately, an unnamed Beijing virologist called for suspending use of Pfizer's experimental mRNA covid vaccine because of thousands of reported adverse events and dozens of deaths, especially among elderly vaxxed individuals.

The vaccine is unsafe for human use and fails to prevent what it's supposed to protect against, the individual said, adding:

It's especially hazardous for older people, notably individuals aged-80 or older.

China's covid vaccine based on a different technology took years to develop, virologist Yang Zhanqiu explained.

When Biden/Harris succeed Trump in days, will US policy toward China change for good or ill?

The latter is much more likely than the former after an expected short-term window of relative calm when Trump, Pompeo, and other regime hardliners are no longer around.

No matter which right wing of the US one-party state is empowered, hostility by Washington against nations free from its control will continue — especially against China, Russia and Iran.
