No one can or will produce a Scientifically identified, isolated, stand alone reproducible sample of a “SARS-COV-02” “virus” claimed without proof to “cause” the mythical “COVID-19” “illness”.

The “COVID” “test” was not a “test” and the CDC itself finally admitted it was useless as teats on a boar hog “identifying” the mythical not scientifically proved to exist “COVID-19” “illness.

40 Years Ago: When Psychotic Barbarians Massacred over 3000 Palestinians at Sabra and Shatila

By Stuart Littlewood,
Remembering one of the vilest massacres in recent history. This will sicken you

Last week was the 40th anniversary of the appalling massacre at Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Lebanon. Dr. Swee Ang was there, in the thick of it, doing what she could for the victims.

Malaysian-born Swee is the first female Orthopaedic Consultant appointed to St Bartholomew (‘Barts’) and the Royal London Hospitals.

I wrote about this remarkable lady 4 years ago when she reported on apartheid Israel’s violent hijacking in international waters of the Norwegian mercy boat Al-Awda sailing to Gaza with urgent medical supplies. She was onboard. Passengers and crew were roughed up (some seriously injured) and abused, thrown in an Israeli jail, and had their possessions and money stolen.

In the 1980s and 1990s she worked as a trauma and orthopedics consultant in the refugee camps of Lebanon and later for the United Nations in Gaza, and the World Health Organisation in the West Bank and Gaza. She is the Founder and Patron of the British charity Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP).

She also treated the victims of the Pakistan (Kashmir) earthquake, and operated on and looked after the victims of the 7 July 2005 London bombing.

Dr. Swee is the co-author of War Surgery and Acute Care of the War Wounded and also wrote From Beirut to Jerusalem documenting her experience in the Palestinian Refugee Camps in Lebanon and Gaza.

This is her account of the terrible 3-day slaughter of Palestinian refugees in 1982.

’40 Years Ago: When Psychotic Barbarians Massacred over 3000 Palestinians at Sabra and Shatila’

As a medic during the Sabra and Shatila massacre, I saw horror and defiance

by Swee Chai Ang

Horrific Lebanese militia attacks enabled by Israel in 1982 left a legacy of trauma. But there is also a reason for hope.

Forty years ago, angered by television footage of the devastation of Lebanon by Israel’s 1982 invasion, I left my London home to volunteer my surgical skills to the wounded. The invasion killed thousands of civilians and destroyed homes, livelihoods, hospitals, libraries, factories, schools, and offices.

I arrived that summer in Beirut, a Christian surgeon who supported Israel and believed the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) were terrorists. My views were about to change.

With many hospitals destroyed, I worked as a volunteer medic in a field hospital in an underground car park. We dealt with devastating war wounds, many inflicted on children. Beirut was bombed and blockaded. Water, electricity, food, and medicine were denied.

Thousands of families whose homes were demolished were forced to live on the streets of the city center – thirsty, hungry, destitute, and traumatized.

With hopes again dashed, homes shelled and bulldozed, and loved ones deported and massacred, survivors once more tried to rebuild their shattered lives.

The aggressive and relentless bombing stopped when the PLO agreed to evacuate in exchange for peace. Thousands of PLO members were ordered to leave Lebanon, undertaking never to return, while their families left behind were promised protection under a US-brokered plan.

Following the ceasefire, the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) needed a six-member surgical team to support the reopening of the 11-floor Gaza hospital on Sabra Street – the only PRCS hospital still standing at the time, after the rest had been flattened by bombs. A group of us packed into a PRCS car, and with sirens blaring, we sped along roads empty of vehicles.

Upon arrival, we saw that the top two floors of the hospital were heavily bombed, but the ninth was largely intact, despite the window glass having been blown out. This became our living quarters. There was still no electricity or running water, but at least the bombs had stopped falling.

The hospital was extremely busy. PRCS staff cleared rubble, and repaired and cleaned hospital wards, operating theatres, the pharmacy, the canteen, and the mortuary. Wounded patients were transferred from various field hospitals to us for further care.

From the top floors of Gaza Hospital, the entire length of Sabra Street was visible, I watched displaced families of women, old men, and children – since the able-bodied men had been evacuated – returning to their homes walking the entire length of that street with their scant belongings on their backs, carts, and donkeys. They were determined to pick up their shattered lives, clear out the rubble, and rebuild their homes. The US-sponsored peace gave them hope. Their courage and will to survive won me over.

What is the Sabra and Shatila massacre?

I made friends with many residents of this area and was outraged to learn the history of Palestine from them. Their families were forced out of Palestine at gunpoint in 1948 to facilitate the creation of the state of Israel.

Around half of the country’s indigenous population or 750,000 people, were driven out to become refugees in neighboring Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Around 13,000 Palestinians were massacred and 530 villages destroyed in this massive ethnic cleansing known as the Nakba.

In short, Palestine was wiped off the world map. In 1948, Lebanon received about 110,000 fleeing refugees who were settled in refugee camps. By 1982, the refugee population had grown to nearly 400,000.

Despite the injustices committed against them, the Palestinians I met were kind and generous. They had suffered so much and yet retained such humanity. I was overwhelmed by their hospitality in the midst of their poverty. Their story was not in any history textbook, but every Palestinian child knew the name of their ancestral village, many of which had already been demolished.

The women introduced me to their stunningly beautiful Palestinian embroidery, with motifs representing their destroyed villages sewn onto black cloth with brilliantly colored silk threads. Each stitch was a testimony to their history, culture, and resilience.

Raped and tortured

Three weeks after the evacuation, on 15 September 1982, the ceasefire was suddenly broken when hundreds of Israeli tanks invaded Beirut. Some of these tanks sealed all the escape routes of Sabra Shatila, and Lebanese Phalangist militia members were sent into Sabra and Shatila camps and massacred up to 3,500 Palestinians and Lebanese civilians, as the Israeli army stood by. Multinational peacekeepers were nowhere to be found.

Residents of the camp were betrayed, left with no one to defend them. Many were raped and tortured before being killed during the three-day massacre.

At the hospital, we operated non-stop, struggling to save hundreds of people shot at close range. Some died upon reaching us and were taken directly to the mortuary. The hospital ran out of blood, medicine, and food. Thousands of frightened people fled into our hospital seeking protection from gunmen who had broken into their homes.

In the midst of the massacre, on the evening of 17 September, our hospital director sent PRCS staff away when it became clear that the gunmen would target them. But our 22-member team of international medical volunteers opted to stay. Anyone hiding in our hospital was asked to leave, as they were also likely to be gunned down. But the critically wounded on life-support could not leave.

Early at dawn the next day, we were forced out of the hospital at gunpoint, leaving behind 30 critically wounded patients, many of them children. A Swedish nurse and a German medical student insisted on staying behind to look after them, and I believe their selfless act of courage saved those patients’ lives.

We were marched along Sabra Street. Hundreds of unarmed camp residents – women, old men, and children – were rounded up by the militia. I saw the terror in their eyes. A desperate young mother passed me her baby, but at gunpoint, she was forced to take him back. Both were killed, together with the others rounded up, after we were taken away.

The Colorado State Patrol is investigating the circumstances of Sunday’s crash. The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is assisting.

The driver of the hit-and-run vehicle is known as Octavio Gonzalez-Garcia. He is 37 or 38 years old and residing in Weld County. Detectives said that a falsified Green Card and a fake Social Security card were recovered from his vehicle. They also said that evidence shows Gonzalez-Garcia was intoxicated at the time of the crash.

Hein-Nutz was riding her motorcycle to work when the crash occurred. Investigators said that Gonzalez-Garcia made no attempt to provide her aid despite obvious injuries and hid in a nearby cornfield.

A suspect was arrested late on Monday night in connection to the hit-and-run that killed Weld County Deputy Alexis Hein-Nutz on Sunday. The 36-year-old man was identified on Tuesday as Norberto Garcia-Gonzales and he tentatively faces charges including leaving the scene of an accident involving death and careless driving resulting in death.

The sheriff’s office confirmed the suspect was taken into custody at 10:15 p.m. after being tracked to Fort Collins and apprehended by WCSO Strike Team, Colorado State Patrol and Fort Collins police. Garcia-Gonzales was taken into custody using Alexis’ jail handcuffs.

Hein-Nutz, 24, was on her way to work on a motorcycle north of Greeley when she was hit. The suspect driver reportedly jumped out of the van he was driving hid in a nearby corn field after leaving the crash.

Anyone with any information about this investigation can call Colorado State Patrol investigators at 303-239-4501. Reference case # 3A221639. You can remain anonymous.

The Urgent Need To Reinstate Dueling!-No Balls Political Whore Wants a War, OK, Pistols, 10 Paces Each, Turn, Fire, War Over

Every time I look at the “news” sites, some ball-less political whore who made damn sure they never put themselves where bullets zing and dying mutilated men scream is trying to start a war.

This is easily fixed.

But furthermore, people run their mouths and stick their noses in everyone else business because the Corporate Courts protect the criminals from their victims.

In the early years of America, men were much more polite to each other.
Oh here and there some Zionist Puritan yankee told some lies about some Southerner, but the solution was simple.

Bitch slap the mouthy yankee across the face, points given for style if some yankee teeth hit the floor.
Allow him to choose his weapons.
Shoot him, or ran a sword through him!
Problem solved!
One less Zionist telling lies in the world.
Wonderful solution.
Made the Zionist chaff having to watch their smart ass mouths.

Andrew Jackson teaching a lesson to the yankee who called his wife a whore

The Zionist Puritan Yankees just would not stop being smart asses, lying, stealing, molesting children.
The child gang raping till death yankee spawn simply refused to act civilized and stop their deviancy.

In self defense, they passed a law which said Southerners could no longer bitch slap them, and kill them when it was very evident that it needed to be done.

Mr. and Mrs. America, Dueling must be reinstated!!!

You will notice that when the country really started going to a zionist hell in a handbag, was when it was made illegal to bitch slap pedophilic zionist yankee politicians and shoot them, or run a good blade through them, either one.

If you ever want your children to be safe, if you ever want to be safe in your very own homes, if you want your children to stop being used as sex toys and cannon fodder by the cowardly, pedophillic, zionist yankee politicians, you had better see to it that the honorable practice of settling differences on the Field of Honor, MUST BE reinstated expediently.

Just think how this would solve Americas problems.

Ass hole zionist scam a bunch of people out of millions of fiat dollars.
None of this Zionist sweetheart deals of taking care of each others crimes!
HELL NO! Every person he scammed, lines up, bitch slaps him, and challenges him to a duel.
The people might want to figure out who the real dead eyed Southern boys are, let them go first.

You find out that Your Federal USA Empire Senator is raping and murdering babies, but his pedophillic buddies are covering his butt.
No Problem. Bitch slap him and demand satisfaction on the Field of Honor. Problem solved.
Children are now much less likely to be raped and murdered.

See how much better our ancestors had things figured out!

Talking head on the MSM keeps lying their ass off to the people, causing no end on trouble and harm to America.
Well son, bitch slap the lying Zionist bastard!
Tell him, do you prefer gunshots or blade thrust?

See how this would tend to straighten things up in America.

Would not have ever got this far into a oppressive shit hole if Dueling had never been banned in Self defense by baby raping Zionist!
This is also a practice which must be returned to all the World.

Enough wars for the baby raping and sacrificing in demonic rituals of evil from the RothsRats.

The Rothsrats whore as “head of State” in some country, wants a war, fine, the head of state of the country they want the war with, fights a duel with the Rats head of State whore.

Unless the cowardly baby raping head Rat wants to take the place of his minion carrying out the Rats’s evil.

War over!
Cheap too!
No stealing trillions from the working people to pay for the war the political whores want.

Time to end wars where poor peoples kids die to make rich ass holes and political whores kids richer.

Time to make the Field of Honor Legal again!

Time to take out the garbage!

Time to get er done!

back to yankeeland so Texicans can clean up the shit hole the yankee Israhell firster occupiers have made of My Occupied Illegally Republic of Texas.

The Illegal occupying USA needs to pay back the theft of 158 years of Texican’s natural resources and the money they stole from Texicans with their illegal taxes, leave all military hardware in place on occupation of Texas military bases and kiss every Texicans ass as they exit the Republic.

I would personally like my Great-great grandmother’s silverware back from the Pentagon, but they can keep the basket they threw my great grandfather out of onto the floor so the “brave” USA “soldiers” could carry off what they were stealing at the point of their rifles.

Actor Matthew McConaughey, who has publicly considered running for governor of Texas, told attendees at San Francisco’s Dreamforce conference that it may be inevitable he runs for president sometime in the future.

Dreamforce is corporate tech giant Salesforce’s annual convention featuring a slew of celebrity speakers and performers. McConaughey spoke to Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff, a close friend, about his activism, the Uvalde school shooting and his political beliefs in a packed room at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater on Tuesday afternoon.

When Benioff asked McConaughey about the 2024 presidential election, the actor did not make any definitive statements on that cycle specifically, but teased his presidential aspirations more broadly.

“Yeah I’ll consider it in the future, I’d be arrogant not to, absolutely I would consider it,” McConaughey said. “If I got into any form of politics I’d be remiss not to also go in as an artist and a storyteller; help put a narrative together. You’re the CEO of a state and a nation, a lot of compartmentalization and choices to be made. They scare me but I’m not afraid of ’em.”

Uncovering the brutal truth about the British empire

The Harvard historian Caroline Elkins stirred controversy with her work on the crushing of the Mau Mau uprising. But it laid the ground for a legal case that has transformed our view of Britain’s past
by Marc Parry

Help us sue the British government for torture. That was the request Caroline Elkins, a Harvard historian, received in 2008. The idea was both legally improbable and professionally risky. Improbable because the case, then being assembled by human rights lawyers in London, would attempt to hold Britain accountable for atrocities perpetrated 50 years earlier, in pre-independence Kenya. Risky because investigating those misdeeds had already earned Elkins heaps of abuse.

Elkins had come to prominence in 2005 with a book that exhumed one of the nastiest chapters of British imperial history: the suppression of Kenya’s Mau Mau rebellion. Her study, Britain’s Gulag, chronicled how the British had battled this anticolonial uprising by confining some 1.5 million Kenyans to a network of detention camps and heavily patrolled villages. It was a tale of systematic violence and high-level cover-ups.

It was also an unconventional first book for a junior scholar. Elkins framed the story as a personal journey of discovery. Her prose seethed with outrage. Britain’s Gulag, titled Imperial Reckoning in the US, earned Elkins a great deal of attention and a Pulitzer prize. But the book polarised scholars. Some praised Elkins for breaking the “code of silence” that had squelched discussion of British imperial violence. Others branded her a self-aggrandising crusader whose overstated findings had relied on sloppy methods and dubious oral testimonies.

By 2008, Elkins’s job was on the line. Her case for tenure, once on the fast track, had been delayed in response to criticism of her work. To secure a permanent position, she needed to make progress on her second book. This would be an ambitious study of violence at the end of the British empire, one that would take her far beyond the controversy that had engulfed her Mau Mau work.

That’s when the phone rang, pulling her back in. A London law firm was preparing to file a reparations claim on behalf of elderly Kenyans who had been tortured in detention camps during the Mau Mau revolt. Elkins’s research had made the suit possible. Now the lawyer running the case wanted her to sign on as an expert witness. Elkins was in the top-floor study of her home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, when the call came. She looked at the file boxes around her. “I was supposed to be working on this next book,” she says. “Keep my head down and be an academic. Don’t go out and be on the front page of the paper.”

She said yes. She wanted to rectify injustice. And she stood behind her work. “I was kind of like a dog with a bone,” she says. “I knew I was right.”

What she didn’t know was that the lawsuit would expose a secret: a vast colonial archive that had been hidden for half a century. The files within would be a reminder to historians of just how far a government would go to sanitise its past. And the story Elkins would tell about those papers would once again plunge her into controversy.

The [USA] & CIA is not your friend By Edward Snowden

Communist FDR “chose” Wild Bill Donovan to head what is now the CIA.
Modern detective work has proved he was a British double agent.
Britain is controlled by the Rothschilds.
Any wonder the CIA overthrew the secular democratic government of Iran in 1953 when it stopped the Rothschilds from stealing Iran’s oil.

The parent organization which became the CIA made sure there would be a Cold War in which American treasure would be transferred to Usry bankers pockets and Americans would die in the pre-planed Korean and Viet Nam wars.

When General Patton tried to stop the pre-planned Cold War and threatened to tell the American people about the USA’s treason against the American people, Wild Bill Donovan paid an OSS operative $10,000 dollars in 1945 money to murder patton.


GEORGE BUSH Sr. FORMER HEAD OF THE CIA WAS A KNOWN SERIAL CHILD RAPIST WHO NEVER COULD QUITE REMEMBER WHERE HE WAS ON THE GRASSY KNOLL THE DAY PRESIDENT JFK WAS MURDERED IN 1963

“Better that right counsels be known to enemies than that the evil secrets of tyrants should be concealed from the citizens. They who can treat secretly of the affairs of a nation have it absolutely under their authority; and as they plot against the enemy in time of war, so do they against the citizens in time of peace.”

― Baruch Spinoza

It hasn’t been a month since President Biden mounted the steps of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, declaring it his duty to ensure each of us understands the central faction of his political opposition are extremists that “threaten the very foundations of our Republic.” Flanked by the uniformed icons of his military and standing atop a Leni Riefenstahl stage, the leader clenched his fists to illustrate seizing the future from the forces of “fear, division, and darkness.” The words falling from the teleprompter ran rich with the language of violence, a “dagger at the throat” emerging from the “shadow of lies.”

“What’s happening in our country,” the President said, “is not normal.”

Is he wrong to think that? The question the speech intended to raise—the one lost in the unintentionally villainous pageantry—is whether and how we are to continue as a democracy and a nation of laws. For all the Twitter arguments over Biden’s propositions, there has been little consideration of his premises.

Democracy and the rule of law have been so frequently invoked as a part of the American political brand that we simply take it for granted that we enjoy both.

Are we right to think that?

Our glittering nation of laws observes this year two birthdays: the 70th anniversary of the National Security Agency, on which my thoughts have been recorded, and the 75th anniversary of the Central Intelligence Agency.

The CIA was founded in the wake of the 1947 National Security Act. The Act foresaw no need for the Courts and Congress to oversee a simple information-aggregation facility, and therefore subordinated it exclusively to the President, through the National Security Council he controls.

Within a year, the young agency had already slipped the leash of its intended role of intelligence collection and analysis to establish a covert operations division. Within a decade, the CIA was directing the coverage of American news organizations, overthrowing democratically elected governments (at times merely to benefit a favored corporation), establishing propaganda outfits to manipulate public sentiment, launching a long-running series of mind-control experiments on unwitting human subjects (purportedly contributing to the creation of the Unabomber), and—gasp—interfering with foreign elections. From there, it was a short hop to wiretapping journalists and compiling files on Americans who opposed its wars.

In 1963, no less than former President Harry Truman confessed that the very agency he personally signed into law had transformed into something altogether different than he intended, writing:

“For some time I have been disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the Government. This has led to trouble…”

Many today comfort themselves by imagining that the Agency has been reformed, and that such abuses are relics of the distant past, but what few reforms our democracy has won have been watered-down or compromised. The limited “Intelligence Oversight” role that was eventually conceded to Congress in order to placate the public has never been taken seriously by either the committee’s majority—which prefers cheerleading over investigating—or by the Agency itself, which continues to conceal politically-sensitive operations from the very group most likely to defend them.

“Congress should have been told,” said [Senator] Dianne Feinstein. “We should have been briefed before the commencement of this kind of sensitive program. Director Panetta… was told that the vice president had ordered that the program not be briefed to Congress.”

How can we judge the ultimate effectiveness of oversight and reforms? Well, the CIA plotted to assassinate my friend, American whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, in 1972, yet nearly fifty years of “reforms” did little to inhibit them from recently sketching out another political murder targeting Julian Assange. Putting that in perspective, you probably own shoes older than the CIA’s most recent plot to murder a dissident… or rather the most recent plot that we know of.

If you believe the Assange case to be a historical anomaly, some aberration unique to Trump White House, recall that the CIA’s killings have continued in series across administrations. Obama ordered the killing of an American far from any battlefield, and killed his 16 year-old American son a few weeks later, but the man’s American daughter was still alive by the time Obama left.

Within a month of entering the White House, Trump killed her.

She was 8 years old.
