FDR Quote On Politics
FDR Quote On Politics

Just to set the stage for the rest of the newsletter, here is a quote from the first half of last century. Note how everything changes but the system stays the same. “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”

Snowden Warns Governments Are Using Coronavirus to Build ’the Architecture of Oppression’
Snowden On Coronavirus Response

The future may be unpredictable, but global pandemics aren’t. There isn’t a single government on the planet that hasn’t been warned, repeatedly, that at some point a viral pandemic will sweep the globe, causing untold death and economic disruption.

And yet most failed to prepare for the novel coronavirus.

“Every academic, every researcher who’s looked at this knew this was coming,” says famed whistleblower Edward Snowden in an exclusive interview with VICE co-founder Shane Smith. “Yet when we needed it, the system has now failed us, and it has failed us comprehensively.”

Snowden is the first guest in the new “Shelter in Place” series airing on VICE TV on Thursday at 10 p.m. EST, which looks at the global response to COVID-19 and its lasting impact around the world. Smith discussed these themes, as well as how to survive quarantine, with a host of thinkers from science, entertainment, economics, and journalism.

In the premiere episode, Smith talks to Snowden, who blew the lid off of the National Security Agency’s surveillance of the American people in 2012. In the interview conducted from Smith’s home in Santa Monica over video chat, the two tackle topics including the lack of preparedness in the face of a global pandemic, how long this will be a threat to humanity, and whether the power we’re handing to global leaders will come back and bite us in the ass.

Australia a ‘standout loser’ for damaging economy without COVID-19 immunity, Nobel prize-winner says

One of the world’s top scientists has branded lockdowns a “huge mistake” and called Australia a “standout loser” for “massively” damaging its economy and society without obtaining immunity to COVID-19.

In an extraordinary 30-minute interview Michael Levitt, who won the Nobel prize for chemistry in 2013, also slammed Baby Boomers for “really screwing up” the world. “If I was a young person now I would say, you guys are going to pay for this,” said Professor Levitt, 72.

Professor of structural biology at Stanford University, he said “panic” stemming from “incorrect numbers” had prompted lockdowns whose damage “will exceed any saving of lives by a huge factor – there is no doubt in my mind”.

Uploaded to UK website Unheard overnight, the professor said Germany and Sweden, with deaths so far per million from COVID-19 of 81 and 264, respectively, were “standout winners” in their response.

This is not just another piece of the jigsaw puzzle it is elemental to understanding the nature of the problem.

Dr. Birx Helped Bill-Gates-and-Clinton Backed Pharma Company Distribute PHONY Drugs and Vaccines While FBI Was Investigating the Criminal Cartel
Laura Birx

Another piece of the jigsaw puzzle drops into place.

Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus coordinator, is embroiled in yet another medical scandal, this time for her role in allowing a criminal Pharma company to dole out tainted and phony drugs and vaccines while the FBI was investigating the company for widespread fraud and money laundering.

Ranbaxy was also tied heavily to the Clinton Foundation. And so is Birx.

How to Stop Bill Gates – We Need Everyone to Write NOW!
Seasonal Flu Vaccine Effective

Gates must be stopped by breaking up his monopoly on Health. How do we do that? You must get out your damn pen, get off your locked-downed but, and write to your Congress representative, Senator, and the White House. Why? Because they were bribed to eliminate ALL human and Civil Rights to sue for the personal injury or death caused by a vaccine. Remove that 100% freedom of liability and you will disarm Gates. He is pushing his vaccine which DOES NOT have to be tested because there is no liability if they get it wrong or inject some other substance with ID2020 to track us and the press will protect Gates and NEVER reveal what is even in such a vaccine.

This is one of the more entertaining exposes of mass indoctrination.

Chinese decision shakes the corners of the entire world
Masked Chinese Leader

China surprised the world today and decided to cancel the dollar peg in the stock exchange transactions and decided to deal officially and the official link to the Chinese yuan instead of the dollar, and this is a bold and important step in China’s economic history.

'Scandalous': US giant approved to mine beneath Sydney drinking water reservoir 'under cover of coronavirus'
Iron Polluted Rivers

A controversial plan for a US company to mine coal beneath a Sydney drinking water dam has been approved by the New South Wales state government while focus was on COVID-19.

Woronora reservoir, an hour’s drive south of the CBD, is part of a system which supplies water to more than 3.4 million people in Greater Sydney.

The approval will allow Peabody Energy to send long wall mining machines 450 metres below the earth’s surface to crawl along coal seams directly below the dam.

Dr Kerryn Phelps says the fact the decision was made “under the cover of coronavirus” is “unfathomable”.

NSW has spent 12 of the last 20 years in drought, with record low rainfall plunging much of the state into severe water shortage last year.

“We know about the potential for catastrophe,” Dr Phelps told

“We just cannot let this [decision] go unchallenged.”

University of Western Sydney water quality expert, Dr Ian Wright, told 9News the complicated scientific reports which accompany mining approvals have “obscured our ability to know what’s going on”.

Given the spate of droughts in NSW, Dr Wright said it is “extremely poor practice” to approve the long walls when there is no definitive answer for how much water is being lost in the catchment areas due to mining.

He believes the fact these areas are closed off to scientists makes it difficult to hold companies to account, saying it is almost impossible to even access basic data about the area.

“It’s hidden and locked up,” he said.

Peabody Energy has mined under the catchment area – including under rivulets and smaller tributaries linked to but not directly under the primary reservoir – for years.

Dr Wright describes the rare glimpse of the Woronora catchment he saw last year as “shocking”.

“[There is a] yawning gap between what is on paper and what people find on the field,” he said.

“The mining has caused severe damage in the past. So how we can go ahead and do more without showing how we fix that damage?”

Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
