Why criminal bankers must stay out of jail

Because people forget, and because recent history and its crimes go down a hole where they sit in the dark and decay without consequences, I bring back some of my earlier articles. Here is one, from 2012:

Aside from their normal duties, banks serve as a social construct. They assure the population that money is in the right place. Vaults, accounts. Banks are where the money goes.

Of course, that idea has broken down in recent years, as people have become aware that banks do bad things.

Still, people maintain a certain amount of faith in these archons of money.

There is one thing, though, that must not happen. It would register too high a psychic shock for the population: bankers going to jail. Not just one or two of them, but a whole gaggle. All sorts of bankers being led off in chains would shatter public confidence. The people might realize that:

Bankland is gangland.

So, in order to maintain some semblance of public confidence in banks, a legal wrinkle is introduced.

You launder billions in drug money and terrorist money, and when you get caught, you say you’re sorry and you go free. It’s paradise.

There’s an official DOJ name for the apology. It’s called “deferred prosecution.”

The guilty-as-sin bankers a) say they’re sorry, b) swear they won’t do it again, and c) pay a fine, which always turns out to be a minor fraction of the proceeds of the criminal enterprise.

WND reports: Stuart Gulliver, chief honcho at banking behemoth HSBC, which was found guilty of massive money laundering, said the bank accepts responsibility “for past mistakes…we have said we are profoundly sorry for them, and we do so again.”

And poof. Gulliver walks.

Whereas, the last time I looked, if you’re moving cocaine in New York, rather than laundering the cocaine profits, “I’m sorry” doesn’t quite cut it when you’re busted.

By the way, the meaning of the word “defer” is “postpone” or “put off” until later. But with bankers, deferred prosecution is a cover for absolutely no criminal prosecution at any time and no prison sentences ever. I guess they didn’t want to call it “making prosecution vanish.”

Also, Mr. Gulliver of HSBC, if you noticed, was apologizing for “mistakes.” Laundering billions of dollars was evidently a series of accidental and unintended happenings, much like adding columns of numbers incorrectly. These people know how to twist meanings.

In bankland, the only thing keeping a CEO from sleeping at night is the inability to stop laughing.

John Cruz, the whistleblower who helped take HSBC down, had a slightly different take on the bank’s “mistakes.” He called the government’s $1.9 billion fine “a joke.” He said, “This bank is organized crime.” He asserted that HSBC has laundered trillions of dollars.

Cruz gave the DOJ tapes of bank employees discussing their crimes, but apparently deferred prosecution won the day. No jail for anyone.

Bill Conroy, one of the best drug-war reporters around, writing at NarcoNews, names the following banks who have been accused of major laundering and, instead of criminal trials, have been granted deferred prosecution:

Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, Wachovia (bought by Wells Fargo), ING, Standard Chartered, American Express International.

A nice group. A high-toned group.

“What did you do at the office today, Daddy?”

“I laundered four hundred million dollars for the Sinaloa Cartel, Jimmy.”

Sidebar: When you live in bankland, and you end up on the short end of your own criminal scam pushing mortgage-backed derivatives, you win “deferred prosecution plus.” No apology necessary, and you can lay your hands on a few hundred billion from the government, as part of a bailout. This is even easier than washing drug dollars.

The government will tell you their bank regulators are stretched thin, overworked, and underpaid. But correct me if I’m wrong, isn’t the whole point of laundering money turning monstrous amounts of raw cash into digitized entries in bank accounts?

And if so, aren’t there places in the pipeline where giant containers full of money actually arrive at back doors?

Aren’t those back doors, in whatever countries they exist, rather easy to spot? Don’t the CIA and numerous other intelligence agencies have time to find those doors…if they want to?

Actually, in bankland, you have powerful intelligence agencies standing by to grease your rails and watch your back.

And life keeps getting better.

Do you seriously think these alphabet government agencies handle guard duty, year after year, decade after decade, watching the back doors and taking their little piece of the cartels’ action, while the privileged residents of bankland rake in the more serious money?

No, no. The agencies want and get full partnerships. In the whole enterprise.

In the cologne-scented atmosphere of bankland, consequences are deferred.

You go to an Ivy League school, you get your degree, you move to New York, you go to work for a bank, and after a while you wash billions of dollars for the Sinaloa. You take the train back to Scarsdale every night and ride home in a taxi. You vote Republican or Democrat. You occasionally explain to yourself why you have to do what you do.

You know all the best people. You look at them and they look at you, and a silent understanding passes between you. A recognition that you’re both in the same basic kind of business.

You’ve long since decided that, in this world, there are the strong and the weak. If on many streetcorners, in many cities around the world, addicts are showing up to get their next jolt, that’s their problem. You have no problems. You live in bankland.

Oh the stories you could tell. But you don’t.

Your bank loves that liquid cash. And all that money finds its way into the legitimate economies of many countries, and isn’t it a good thing? It’s alchemical. You’re turning the bad into good.

Surely you are.

If Occupy Wall Street had started out with gigantic signs featuring names of prominent banks above the phrase, WASHING BILLIONS IN DRUG MONEY, do you think network television cameras would have been down at Battery Park every day, and do you think moron news anchors and the White House would have been praising those fearless youths in the Park?

Do you really think so?

When spying on the world used to be a problem: the good old days

by Jon Rappoport

June 30, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

At one time, circa 2013, spying on everybody was considered outrageous. Now it’s “necessary.”

I’m reprinting my article from 2013 below. But first, a quick bit of history concerning two little known Israeli companies, Narus and Verint. They have helped the NSA spy on the planet.

Narus, in 2010, was folded into Boeing, one of the largest defense contractors in the world. Then, in 2014, Boeing sold Narus to Symantec. In 2016, Symantec sold half of itself to the notorious Carlyle Group. So Narus, a little engine that could, has been keeping very high-priced company.

Verint has managed to retain its independence, after buying out the majority stake of Comverse Technology, its former owner, in 2013.

Okay, here we go—from this point on, everything was written in 2013:

2013. Boom. Explosive revelations. The NSA is using telecom giants to spy on anybody and everybody, in a program called PRISM.

But the information is not new.

Three books have been written about the super-secret NSA, and James Bamford has written them all.

In 2008, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now interviewed Bamford as his latest book, The Shadow Factory, was being released.

Bamford explained that, in the 1990s, everything changed for NSA. Previously, they’d been able to intercept electronic communications by using big dishes to capture what was coming down to Earth from telecom satellites.

But with the shift to fiber-optic cables, NSA was shut out. So they devised new methods.

For example, they set up a secret spy room at an AT&T office in San Francisco. NSA installed new equipment that enabled them to tap into the fiber-optic cables and suck up all traffic.

How Bamford describes this, in 2008, tells you exactly where the PRISM program came from:

“NSA began making these agreements with AT&T and other companies, and that in order to get access to the actual cables, they had to build these secret rooms in these buildings.

“So what would happen would be the communications on the cables would come into the building, and then the cable would go to this thing called a splitter box, which was a box that had something that was similar to a prism, a glass prism.

“And the prism was shaped like a prism, and the light signals would come in, and they’d be split by the prism. And one copy of the light signal would go off to where it was supposed to be going in the telecom system, and the other half, this new cloned copy of the cables, would actually go one floor below to NSA’s secret room.

“… And in the secret room was equipment by a private company called Narus, the very small company hardly anybody has ever heard of that created the hardware and the software to analyze these cables and then pick out the targets NSA is looking for and then forward the targeted communications onto NSA headquarters.”

In James Bamford’s 2008 interview, he mentions two Israeli companies, Narus and Verint, that almost nobody knew about. They played a key role in developing and selling the technology that allowed NSA to deploy its PRISM spying program:

Bamford: “Yeah. There’s two major — or not major, they’re small companies, but they service the two major telecom companies. This company, Narus, which was founded in Israel and has large Israel connections, does the — basically the tapping of the communications on AT&T. And Verizon chose another company, ironically also founded in Israel and largely controlled by and developed by people in Israel called Verint.

“So these two companies specialize in what’s known as mass surveillance. Their literature — I read this literature from Verint, for example — is supposed to only go to intelligence agencies and so forth, and it says, ‘We specialize in mass surveillance,’ and that’s what they do.

“They put [this] mass surveillance equipment in these facilities. So you have AT&T, for example, that, you know, considers it’s their job to get messages from one person to another, not tapping into messages, and you get the NSA that says, we want, you know, copies of all this. So that’s where these [two Israeli] companies come in. These companies act as the intermediary basically between the telecom companies and the NSA.”

AMY GOODMAN: “Now, Jim Bamford, take this a step further, because you say the founder and former CEO of one of these companies [Verint] is now a fugitive from the United States somewhere in Africa?”

JAMES BAMFORD: “…the company that Verizon uses, Verint, the founder of the company, the former head of the company, is now a fugitive in — hiding out in Africa in the country of Namibia, because he’s wanted on a number of felony warrants for fraud and other charges. And then, two other top executives of the company, the general counsel and another top official of the parent company, have also pled guilty to these charges.

“So, you know, you’ve got companies — these [two] companies have foreign connections with potential ties to foreign intelligence agencies, and you have problems of credibility, problems of honesty and all that. And these companies — through these two companies pass probably 80 percent or more of all US communications at one point or another.

“And it’s even — gets even worse in the fact that these companies also supply their equipment all around the world to other countries, to countries that don’t have a lot of respect for individual rights —- Vietnam, China, Libya, other countries like that. And so, these countries use this equipment to filter out dissident communications and people trying to protest the government. It gives them the ability to eavesdrop on communications and monitor dissident email communications. And as a result of that, people are put in jail, and so forth…”

AMY GOODMAN: “And despite all of this…these telecom companies still have access to the most private communications of people all over America and actually, it ends up, around the world. And at the beginning of the summer [2008], the Democrats and Republicans joined together in granting retroactive immunity to these companies for spying on American citizens.”

The fugitive CEO of Verint, whom Bamford mentions, is Jacob “Kobi” Alexander. In 2006, the US Dept. of Justice charged him with conspiring to commit securities and wire and mail fraud. The SEC weighed in and filed similar civil charges.

Alexander fled to Namibia, where he finally settled with the SEC for $46 million. In 2017, he returned to the US, where he was sentenced to the 30 months in prison.

He is no longer the CEO of Verint.

It’s obvious that these two Israeli companies, Narus and Verint, working for NSA, have been able to divert mega-tons of data to Israeli intelligence.

The recent media stories on this NSA PRISM spying system indicate that NSA is tapping into the servers of huge tech companies; Google, AOL, Microsoft, Skype, Apple, Yahoo. The methods of data theft may have expanded, but the result and intent remain the same.

The government-corporate juggernaut moves ahead. Their rationale—catching terrorists—is, in great part, a cover story to obscure the fact that the State wants control over the lives of all citizens, as it ratchets up the very conditions that provoke rebellion.

It’s a classic pincer movement.

As far as the current NSA PRISM spying is concerned, look for limited hangouts. These are partial admissions and excuses, offered to conceal greater crimes and stop investigations.

The giant tech companies already have their limited hangout in place: “We didn’t know it was happening, we would never have allowed it to happen, and we’ll be much more careful in the future.”

Obama is saying: Yes, let’s have dialogue on this matter…there’s a fine line between national security needs and overweening intrusion into citizens’ privacy.

The NSA is saying: We do spy, but we don’t read content of emails and phone calls. We just keep ‘records’ of the communications.

The lies lying liars tell.

FDA equals terrorism: when will Homeland Security inform us?

(Episode 13 of Rappoport Podcasts — “The Real President” — is now posted on my substack. It’s a blockbuster. To listen, click here. To learn more about This Episode of Rappoport Podcasts, click here.)


If you worked for a federal agency that was studiously ignoring a kill-rate of 100,000 Americans a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn’t you feel compelled to say or do something about it?

At the FDA, which is that federal agency, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.

Let’s shift the venue and ask the same question. If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn’t you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something?

And with that, let’s go to the smoking guns. The medical citation is: BMJ June 7, 2012 (BMJ 2012:344:e3989). Author, Jeanne Lenzer.

Lenzer refers to a report by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices: “It [the report] calculated that in 2011 prescription drugs were associated with two to four million people in the US experiencing ‘serious, disabling, or fatal injuries, including 128,000 deaths.’”

The report called this “one of the most significant perils to humans resulting from human activity.”

And here is the final dagger. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA’s own database of “serious adverse [medical-drug] events.”

Therefore, to say the FDA isn’t aware of this finding would be absurd. The FDA knows. The FDA knows and it isn’t saying anything about it, because the FDA certifies, as safe and effective, all the medical drugs that are routinely maiming and killing Americans.

And for the past 10 years or so, I have been writing about and citing a published report by the late Dr. Barbara Starfield that indicates 106,000 people in the US are killed by medical drugs every year. Until her death in 2011, Dr. Starfield worked at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Her report, “Is US health really the best in the world?”, was published in the Journal of American Medical Association on July 26, 2000.

Since the Department of Homeland Security is working its way into every nook and corner of American life, hyper-extending its mandate to protect all of us from everything, why shouldn’t the DHS investigate the FDA as a terrorist organization?

How many smoking guns do we need before a sitting president shuts down the FDA buildings, fumigates the place, and prosecutes very large numbers of FDA employees?

Do we need 100,000 smoking guns every year? Do we need relatives of the people who’ve all died in the span of merely a year, from the poisonous effects of FDA-approved medical drugs, bringing corpses to the doors of FDA headquarters?

And let me ask another question. If instead of drugs like warfarin, dabigatran, levofloxacin, carboplatin, and lisinopril (the five leading killers in the FDA database), the 100,000 deaths per year were led by gingko, ginseng, vitamin D, niacin, and raw milk, what do you think would happen?

I’ll tell you what would happen. SEALS, Delta Force, SWAT teams, snipers, predator drones, tanks, and infantry would be lining up and hovering outside every health-food store and nutritional supplement manufacturer in America.

All those fake stories in the press, reported dutifully by so-called medical reporters? The stories about maybe-could-be-possible-miracle breakthroughs just over the horizon of state-of-the-art medical research? Those stories are there to obscure the very, very hard facts of medically-caused death on the ground.

The buck stops at the FDA.

Except in the real world, it doesn’t. Which tells you something about the so-called real world and how much of it is composed of propaganda.

No medical drug in the US can be released for public use unless and until the FDA says it is safe and effective. That’s the rule. The FDA is spitting out drug approvals month after month and year after year, and the drugs are routinely killing 100,000 people a year and maiming two million more, which adds up to a million deaths per decade and 20 million maimings per decade. The FDA and the federal government are doing nothing about it, even though they know what’s going on. This is mass murder. Not accidental death. Murder. A holocaust.

Do you want another citation?

Here are a few horrific quotes. I’ll discuss the source afterwards:

“…appropriately prescribed prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death…About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the US and Europe.”

“They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more [6.6 million per year] hospitalizations, as well as falls, road accidents, and about 80 million [per year] medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others.”

“Deaths from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures.”

In other words, the 330,000 deaths per year, the 6.6 million hospitalizations per year, and the 80 million “medically minor” problems per year…all of this stems from CORRECTLY PRESCRIBED medicines.

The quotes come from the ASA [American Sociological Association] publication called Footnotes, in its November 2014 issue. The article is “The Epidemic of Sickness and Death from Prescription Drugs.” The author of the article is Donald W Light.

Donald W Light is a professor of medical and economic sociology. He is a founding fellow of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2013, he was a fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard. He is a Lokey Visiting Professor at Stanford University and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

It’s been my policy to quote medical analysts who have mainstream credentials, when it comes to adding up the results of medical-drug destruction.

I do this to show that, in refusing to fix the holocaust, the federal government, medical schools, and pharmaceutical companies can’t claim their critics and detractors are “fringe researchers.”

Believe me, the officials who should have been fixing the enormous tragedy for at least the past 15 years are intent on hiding it.

When you stop and think about the meaning of these medical numbers, one of the things you realize is: this massive destruction of life envelops whole countries.

It not only maims and kills, it brings emotional turmoil and loss to the families, friends, co-workers, and colleagues of those who are killed and maimed: the 330,000 who are killed and the 6.6 million who are hospitalized and the 80 million whose productivity is hobbled or whose ability to care for others is significantly diminished.

If you consciously set out to bring a nation to its knees;

to kill it;

to make it unable to function at any reasonable level;

you would be hard pressed to find a more effective long-term method than exposing the population to the US/European medical-drug cartel.

The Babies and The Vaccine

Protecting your baby from a virus that doesn’t exist, with a killshot

by Jon Rappoport

June 16, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

So you’ve had your eight-month-old baby injected with the COVID vaccine.

Of course.

And the SARS-CoV-2 virus doesn’t exist.

I’ve heard that. But it’s not the issue for us.

What is the issue for you?

Making a fashion statement.

How so?

We need to stay in the forefront of trends.

Why?

Why wouldn’t we?

Have you seen the federal database that records vaccine injury and death reports?

Of course.

So you know your baby could die from the shot.

Yes.

And that doesn’t matter to you.

Not as much as being able to tell our friends we had our baby vaccinated.

You, as parents—

That’s a misunderstood term. We don’t consider ourselves parents. The State is the parent. We’re the monitors.

Monitors?

We observe, and carry out limited functions.

Even if you assume the virus exists, the chances of your baby catching it and becoming ill are incredibly tiny.

That’s right. But this isn’t what we’re about. As I said, we’re keeping pace with fashion.

Are you human?

It depends on how you define the term. Humans are biological machines. Most people believe in something beyond that, but the content of belief is predetermined by a person’s upbringing, genes, conditioning, and so on.

Have you ever questioned vaccine science?

There’s nothing to question. We understand science. I have a PhD in psychology, and my husband is a software engineer. My IQ is 141. My husband’s is 136. We’re equipped to deal with vaccine issues.

If your baby died from the shot, would you mourn?

Yes. We would post photos and statements on our Facebook page.

—No doubt, some people would take offense at this “interview.” How could I? Here’s how. I wrote it. I wrote it because the government and Pfizer and Moderna—no matter how they interpret COVID and “the virus”—are moving ahead to inject as many babies as possible—which is a crime of mass assault and mass murder. Many parents will go along with it.

Let’s invent more money to support the Ukraine-Russia War

by Jon Rappoport

June 15, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

The few journalists who are questioning the $55 billion the US government is giving to the Ukraine (mostly in the form of weapons) are saying:

This money should be spent on Americans who need it.

I’m asking: Is there ANY end to inventing money out of thin air?

Because we have a situation very much like a homeless person walking into a showroom and buying two Rolls Royces.

And THAT is what the World Economic Forum and other pernicious globalist groups are using as the pretext to launch a new worldwide money system.

This is, in fact, the way war works. The heavy hitters fund all sides, rake in huge returns on their investments, and at the same time point to rising government debt as the reason for more government control.

Don’t look for logic there. It’s a successfully marketed shell game.

From each according to his ability to pay, to each according to his need to receive. Except the same elite groups define what “ability to pay” means and who has the need to receive.

And they also decide when the game of musical chairs ends and who is left out in the cold. And what to do about it.

Again, their solution is a new money system.

Digital; guaranteed universal income, based on following orders and behaving; private ownership of nothing; quotas for energy use.

Making all this happen is a tall mountain to climb; but designated parties are already moving up through the foothills to higher elevations.

War is a way of sucking money out of the system of governments and claiming government debt is a major problem. The only solution, we’re told, is more government spending, until one day the controllers arbitrarily claim the process can’t go on any longer.

And guess what? They have a new system. Just by chance.

If you’re thinking this entire narrative of insanity sounds like a wall to wall con, you’re right. Every inch of it is a con.

The Ukraine War is just another occasion for extending the con.

Massive inflation is created to impart “how serious the situation is.”

Sensible business people could sit down and work out ways to put the current financial apparatus back on sound international ground in a month.

But sensible people aren’t running the show.

Predators are.

“Remember, gentlemen, we have three goals here. We make as much money as possible. And then we insist the current financial system can’t any longer exist. And then we install a new system that maximizes out profits still further, while putting every human under the gun. We own his money and his property. We give a fraction of those assets back to the citizen, dribble by dribble, under the condition that he obeys all our rules.”

Meanwhile, out in the world, everybody and his brother are arguing about who should get the money that doesn’t exist until the predators push a button signaling that more can be invented out of thin air.

Pandemico, Movie of The Mind

by Jon Rappoport

June 14, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

This movie has been produced in many ways, in many minds.

In all cases, the theme is the same: DO NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE OUT IN THE OPEN.

Instead obey all restrictions. SHUT IT DOWN.

Believe in the dangers you’re told to believe in.

In the final analysis, this movie was a box office hit because most people gave in. Their fears may have hooked into different parts of the COVID narrative, but the deciding factor WAS fear.

A nation, a world paralyzed by fear.

And yes, lurking in the background (or in some countries, in the foreground) was the fact that the State had cops and guns and detainment facilities.

I’ve spent many hours detailing that, at one time, the citizenry would have risen up, en masse, and rebelled against the State. They would have shrugged off pandemic declarations. They would have risked everything to keep LIVING THEIR LIVES OUT IN THE OPEN.

Because at one time, freedom meant more.

The individual meant more.

People making up their own minds meant more.

Predatory groups organized to cut themselves in on a piece of the government pie meant less.

All these groups, from BLM to Climate Change, demand less freedom. That is their unspoken bottom line. And their justifications for this demand are bogus and fabricated.

They’re basically FRIENDS OF THE STATE.

Readers who have been with me for a long time know that, in 1988, I started warning people that the medical cartel was the most dangerous cartel in the world. It was seeking medical dictatorship.

I knew that in 1988, because I was meeting radical natural health advocates—tough, smart, resilient people. THEY had been warning about medical dictatorship for the previous 20, 30 years.

When I saw what my research on a phantom virus called HIV was proving, I knew civilization was in for some very rough times. All sorts of medical fantasies would be used to destroy freedom.

As Ben Franklin made clear, people WERE willing to trade that freedom for a false sense of security.

The past two years have proved it in spades.

But they’ve also proved something else. There is a limit to what people will take.

So I write this piece to say the restrictions could be coming again.

And if they do, we don’t need another two years to realize what the game really is.

We have to say NO from the get-go. We have to put fear aside and risk everything for freedom.

It wouldn’t be the first time people did, you know.

Face it, we’re all suffering from a false sense of security. Fortunately, we don’t have to succumb. We can be the individuals we dream of being, against whatever the State launches against us.

There are beasts among us. It turns out that many of them have no faces. They are the reincarnation of men and women who sat at desks and signed warrants for the death camps.

Gambling that life without freedom can still be a good life is a disastrous bet.

In the founding documents of America—the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution—the idea of freedom was there. Individual freedom with responsibility.

Before the ink was dry, the attacks on freedom commenced. Freedom has been dented, battered, smashed, and yes, betrayed, from all quarters. But it still stands and shines.

Evil creatures want to bury it for good. Now.

Their only fear is we won’t let them.

New York Times launches Vaccine Fantasy Island

by Jon Rappoport

(Episode 10 of Rappoport Podcasts — “Hottest Medical Crimes No One Else Will Cover; Plus New Monkeypox Revelations” — is now posted on my substack. It’s a blockbuster. To listen, click here. To learn more about This Episode of Rappoport Podcasts, click here.)


I’m loving this one.

The Times has a new piece about the anti-vaxx movement:

“The Anti-Vaccine Movement’s New Frontier: A wave of parents has been radicalized by Covid-era misinformation to reject ordinary childhood immunizations — with potentially lethal consequences.”

And Friday morning, they sent out an email blast to promote the article.

Here’s their promo. The Times really had to stretch to come up with such a load. My comments are in brackets.

“This week, Moises Velasquez-Manoff reports on a wave of parents who have been radicalized by Covid-era misinformation to reject ordinary childhood immunizations — with potentially lethal consequences.”

[Wow. The author has three names. Impressive. I feel I need at least three to reply. Jon The Rebel on Vaccine Fantasy Island Just Say No to Bill Gates Rappoport.]

“In 2019, even before the pandemic struck, the World Health
Organization listed growing vaccine hesitancy as one of its top 10 threats to global health. Now the pandemic has given anti-vaccine advocates an opportunity to field-test a variety of messages and find new recruits.”

[Yes, our anti-vaxx squadrons use dozens of human and AI analysts to float our messages and then test the results. We use polls, surveys, in-home visits, NSA-type surveillance tools, and even covert assets in the press to expand our reach. Elite foundation money pours into our coffers.]

“’There’s a lot of misinformation about the Covid vaccines, and it just bleeds into everything,’ one doctor told us. ‘These fake stories and bad information get stuck in people’s heads, and they understandably get confused’.”

[One doctor told the Times that. Well, case closed. Verdict? We’re guilty. The doctor is always right. Wait a minute. I just called a doctor. He told me the Times’ doctor is wrong. Duel at dawn. Choice of weapons.]

“If this dynamic continues, it could threaten decades of progress in controlling infectious disease — a triumph that has, paradoxically, hindered the effort to counter vaccine skepticism. In the developed world, only a small portion of the population has seen the death and suffering caused by the diseases of eras past; vaccines, in the minds of many, have come to pose a greater threat than the diseases that they have helped nearly vanquish. In a sense, vaccines have become victims of their own success.”

[Obviously, the Times writer is a gymnast. Probably practices yoga. He can bend and stretch and twist with the best of them. Also, notice how he characterizes the parents who “have been radicalized”: They’re people who don’t have a brain in their heads. They’re massively ignorant robots, dupes and yokels just waiting for vaccine misinformation, which they grab like kids going for candy. Parents actually thinking for themselves? Never happens.]

On the other hand, readers of the Times are DISCERNING. They’re COLLEGE GRADS. They take their vaxx info from the paper’s pros, who have perfected the ability to look down their noses at the great unwashed and cluck and tsk tsk and express a modicum of sympathy.

Nowhere in the Times—ever—will we read an actual debate on the subject of vaccines, in which two sides are adequately represented and given ample space to present a little thing called EVIDENCE (or fake evidence).

To host such debates would be demeaning for the Times. It would signal a departure from their perch which constantly advertises: if-we-say-it-we-know-it.

Maintaining that pose month after month, year after year, decade after decade is debilitating.

Which is one reason why so many mainstream reporters are drunks.

New podcast: The Whole COVID and AIDS Fraud: My 35 Years of Investigation

The complete story for the first time

by Jon Rappoport

May 3, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

The podcast is now up at my substack page. It’s a blockbuster. Four hours (part-1, part-2). The deepest myths of COVID and AIDS—exploded.

Kick in a few bucks, subscribe, and listen to it.

When I began exposing COVID as a complete fraud—right at the beginning, in the winter of 2020—people asked me how I could describe the whole picture of the fake pandemic so quickly.

My answer was: AIDS.

I had done all the heavy lifting back in 1987-88, which resulted in my first book, AIDS INC., SCANDAL OF THE CENTURY.

COVID, in key respects, is a mirror image of AIDS.

Two gigantic scientific and medical frauds.

Now, in the podcast, I’m telling the whole story of my research, how it developed, how I rooted around in the dark, in 1987, and finally found the key clues that broke down the barriers.

I’ve wanted to put all this on the record for years, and now I have.

And in the podcast, I dismantle the deepest frauds of COVID as well.

COVID, scientifically speaking, is a rerun of HIV/AIDS.

The COVID virus story, the test, the case numbers, the treatments, the targeting of populations, the use of “the virus” as a vast cover story to conceal boggling ongoing crimes—it’s all one CONSTRUCTION with connected parts.

For 35 years, I haven’t stopped exposing the medical cartel. And I’ve made it VERY clear, since 1988, that political reporters who want to expose deep political truth MUST understand the titanic medical issues at the root of what’s being done to our world.

The method of analysis I employed and refined in 1987-88 applies today, without changing a single thing. In the podcast, I describe how I arrived at that method.

There are heroes I learned from along the way, and I bring them up in the podcast. They’ve stood firm against storms of attacks from the establishment, and their contributions must not be forgotten.

Starting 35 years ago, my position has been: when I find the truth, I don’t just bite off a piece of it and show it to people.

I lay it ALL out.

I don’t decide what is palatable and what is “too much to expose.” I don’t make that calculation.

This means that certain facts I lay out on a silver platter disturb all sorts of myths and legends and fairy tales that are universally accepted.

So be it.

Ever since I started working as a journalist, in 1982, at the age of 44 (I just turned 84), I took that approach. Dig, keep digging, and report everything I find. IGNORE “NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES.”

There is only the choice of whether to hold back or go all the way.

Holding back entangles a writer in “career decisions” and judgments about what “audiences can handle.” When you go that route, you end up cutting your own throat and stifling your own energy.

To me, a good day for a journalist is seeing something big you didn’t know. You found it out and you told people about it. The bigger the better. The more apple carts you upset, the better.

And when it comes to medical apple carts, the shockers are astonishingly profound.

So take a ride with me in this podcast. I’m blowing the cover off the very biggest and deepest myths I’ve found. Including the secret temple of virology.

As always, thank you for your support.

Jon

The transgender culture war needs parents who are cowards

by Jon Rappoport

April 11, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Are you a parent who wants to sacrifice your young child? Sign up today in the culture war. Kneel down before predators and act like the coward you are.

The campaign to turn young children into “gender fluid” creatures isn’t just the goal of groups of schoolteacher-groomers. No. It’s embedded in the curriculum. It’s official.

Read this gobbledygook. Read it like your child’s life is hanging in the balance:

Daily Mail: “First-graders in New Jersey will be learning about gender identity with new sex education curriculum which includes a lesson that teaches children they can have ‘boy parts’ but ‘feel like’ a girl.”

“The new lessons, which are part of a broader, K-12 health and sex education curriculum adopted by the New Jersey Board of Education, are alarming some parents, Asbury Park Press first reported.”

“One of the 30-minute lesson plans, called ‘Pink, Blue and Purple,’ teaches the students to define ‘gender, gender identity and gender role stereotypes”.”

“Another lesson plan, this one for second-graders called ‘Understanding Our Bodies,’ tells teachers to instruct students that ‘being a boy or a girl doesn’t have to mean you have those parts, there are some body parts that mostly just girls have and some parts that mostly just boys have’.”

“‘Most people have a vulva and a vagina or a penis and testicles, but some people’s bodies can be different,’ the plan states. ‘Your body is exactly what is right for you’.”

“The new state sex education guidelines, which go into effect in September, were handed out to parents at the Westfield Board of Education meeting in February, and included instructions for teachers to tell students that their gender identity is up to them.”

“‘You might feel like you’re a boy even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are “girl” parts,’ the lesson plan states.”

“‘You might feel like you’re a girl even if you have body parts that some people might tell you are “boy” parts. And you might not feel like you’re a boy or a girl, but you’re a little bit of both. No matter how you feel, you’re perfectly normal!’”

ALL THIS FOR FIRST AND SECOND GRADERS.

So if you’re a parent, you can bow down and have your little child exposed to this. It’s free. You don’t have to pay for it—unless you’re bright enough to realize your taxes are payments.

Be a coward. Let lunatics teach your children. Be tolerant of all points of view. This is the definition of culture, right?

Face it. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO TEACH YOUR KIDS. You abdicated that responsibility years ago. So let the schools take over for you. It’s easy. You don’t have to speak up. You can stay silent.

If you need to, you can find a study somewhere that concludes children are “already sexual.” This will give you comfort. It’ll prove that…well, who knows what it proves? It doesn’t really prove anything. But it’s a study. So that’s good.

Here’s a question: With the government in charge of education, what did you think schools would eventually turn into?

Factories for destroying minds and bodies. There is a number…nobody knows what it is precisely, but it represents the size of government. When that number is exceeded—and we exceeded it long ago—the government turns on the people and treats them as mortal enemies. It doesn’t matter what kind of government it is. From that point on, the people must be crushed.

But don’t worry, be happy, parent. You can be happy if you back up far enough from your children and let them absorb the brunt of the attack. You can have a proxy victim stand in for you. You can delude yourself into thinking that it’s only your child who’ll pay the price.

I assure you, they’re coming after you, too. You just don’t see it yet. You should see it, because when the government destroys your child, you’re supposed to see it.

You could see it by recognizing that when the Dept. of Homeland Security and the Attorney General start making noises about parents who stand up for their children at school boards—calling the parents domestic terrorists—THAT’S A CLUE.

By my calculation, parents who let their children face destruction should be in prison. The problem is, the government runs the prisons, and the government wants you to give up your children to the State.

Maybe we could open citizen-run prisons for parents who surrender their children to the State. There’s a new idea. A private prison. For cowards.

When I was a kid, if the school system had been teaching gender anything, a whole army of parents would have marched into the principal’s office and read him the riot act. He would have folded and crumbled in a minute. He would have gotten down on his knees and wept and apologized and scrapped that curriculum the same day.

That was the 1940s. It tells you something about what has happened in America since then. Fathers’ balls have turned into jelly.

They’ve become traitors to their own families.

They’re hiding behind a wall of delusions.

They think their primary duty is BEING NICE.

Cowards. Moral cowards.

In any community worth its salt, they would be shunned. Never spoken to. Exiled.

You should pray that if your children make it to adulthood, you won’t be around. Because if you are around, those children are going to look at you with an accusation that sets you on fire and burns you down to the ground.

When they were five and six years old, you let them into a cage with wild animals. And you turned around with a smile on your face and walked away.

The rise of the meta-criminal

by Jon Rappoport

April 8, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

I wrote this article seven years ago.

It is more relevant than ever, with the expansion of the Surveillance State.

One of the points of the article: independent investigators can discover a high-level crime—but suppose some monster agency has already “been there,” found that crime, and has used the knowledge to accrue an advantage for itself?

Hence the term, meta-crime.

Here we go…from 2015:

Trevor Timm of the Electronic Freedom Frontier dug up a very interesting nugget. It was embedded in the heralded December 2013 White House task force report on spying and snooping.

Under Recommendations, #31, section 2, he found this:

“Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate financial systems.”

Timm quite rightly wondered: why were these warnings in the report?

Were the authors just anticipating a possible crime? Or were they reflecting the fact that the NSA had already been engaging in the crime?

If this was just a bit of anticipation, why leave it naked in the report? Why not say there was no current evidence the NSA had been manipulating financial systems?

Those systems would, of course, include the stock market, and all trading markets around the world.

Well, there is definite evidence of other NSA financial snooping. From Spiegel Online, 9/15/13:

“The National Security Agency (NSA) widely monitors international payments, banking and credit card transactions, according to documents seen by SPIEGEL.”

“The NSA’s Tracfin data bank also contained data from the Brussels-based Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT), a network used by thousands of banks to send transaction information securely…the NSA spied on the organization on several levels, involving, among others, the [NSA] agency’s ‘tailored access operations’ division…”

The NSA’s “tailored access operations” division uses roughly 1000 hackers and analysts in its spying efforts.

The next step in all this spying would naturally involve penetrating trading markets and, using the deep data obtained, manipulate the markets to the advantage of the NSA and preferred clients.

The amount of money siphoned off in such an ongoing operation would be enormous.

“Looking over the shoulder” of Wall St. insiders would be child’s play for NSA.

Ditto for predicting political events that would temporarily drive markets down and provide golden opportunities for highly profitable short selling.

Like drug traffickers and other mobsters, the NSA could invest their ill-gotten gains in legitimate enterprises and reap additional rewards.

And if the Pentagon, under which the NSA is organized, requires heavy amounts of money for off-the-books black budget ops, what better place to go than their own NSA?

All in all, when you operate the biggest spying and data-gathering operation in the world, the opportunities abound. Yes, knowledge is power, when the distinctions between legal and illegal are brushed off like a few gnats on a summer day.

The Surveillance State has created an apparatus whose implications are staggering. It’s a different world now. And sometimes it takes a writer of fiction to flesh out the larger landscape.

Brad Thor’s novel, Black List, posits the existence of a monster corporation, ATS, which stands alongside the NSA in collecting information on every move we make. ATS’ intelligence-gathering capability is unmatched anywhere in the world.

On pages 117-118 of Black List, Thor makes a stunning inference that, on reflection, is as obvious as the fingers on your hand:

“For years ATS had been using its technological superiority to conduct massive insider trading. Since the early 1980s, the company had spied on anyone and everyone in the financial world. They listened in on phone calls, intercepted faxes, and evolved right along with the technology, hacking internal computer networks and e-mail accounts. They created mountains of ‘black dollars’ for themselves, which they washed through various programs they were running under secret contract, far from the prying eyes of financial regulators.”

“Those black dollars were invested into hard assets around the world, as well as in the stock market, through sham, offshore corporations. They also funneled the money into reams of promising R&D projects, which eventually would be turned around and sold to the Pentagon or the CIA.”

“In short, ATS had created its own license to print money and had assured itself a place beyond examination or reproach.”

In real life, with the NSA heading up the show, the outcome would be the same.

It would be as Thor describes it.

We think about total surveillance as being directed at private citizens, but the capability has unlimited payoffs when it targets financial markets and the people who have intimate knowledge of them.

“Total security awareness” programs of surveillance are ideal spying ops in the financial arena, designed to suck up millions of bits of inside information, then utilizing them to make investments and suck up billions (trillions?) of dollars.

It gives new meaning to “the rich get richer.”

Taking the overall scheme to another level, consider this: those same heavy hitters who have unfettered access to financial information can also choose, at opportune moments, to expose certain scandals and crimes (not their own, of course).

In this way, they can, at their whim, cripple governments, banks, and corporations. They can cripple investment houses, insurance companies, and hedge funds. Or, alternatively, they can merely blackmail these organizations.

We think we know how scandals are exposed by the press, but actually we don’t. Tips are given to people who give them to other people. Usually, the first clue that starts the ball rolling comes from a source who remains in the shadows.

We are talking about the creation and managing of realities on all sides, including the choice of when and where and how to provide a glimpse of a crime or scandal.

The information matrix can be tapped into and plumbed, and it can also be used to dispense choice clusters of data that end up constituting the media reality of painted pictures which, every day, show billions of people “what’s news.”

It’s likely that the probe Ron Paul was once pushing—audit the Federal Reserve—has already been done by those who control unlimited global surveillance. They already know far more than any Congressional investigation will uncover. If they know the deepest truths, they can use them to blackmail, manipulate, and control the Fed itself.

In this global-surveillance world, we need to ask new questions and think along different lines now.

For example, how long before the mortgage-derivative crisis hit did the Masters of Surveillance know, from spying on bank records, that insupportable debt was accumulating at a lethal pace? What did they do with that information?

When did they know that at least a trillion dollars was missing from Pentagon accounting books, as Donald Rumsfeld eventually admitted on September 10, 2001, and what did they do with that information?

When did they know the details of the Libor rate-fixing scandal? Press reports indicate that Barclays was trying to rig interest rates as early as January 2005.

Have they tracked, in detail, the men responsible for recruiting hired mercenaries and terrorists, who eventually wound up in Syria pretending to be an authentic rebel force?

Have they collected detailed accounts of the most private plans of Bilderberg, CFR, and Trilateral Commission leaders?

For global surveillance kings, what we think of as the future is, in many respects the present and the past.

It’s a new world. These overseers of universal information-detection can enter and probe the most secret caches of data, collect, collate, cross reference, and assemble them into vital bottom-lines. By comparison, an operation like Wikileaks is an old Model-T Ford.

Previously, we thought we needed to look over the shoulders of the men who were committing major crimes out of public view. But now, if we want to be up to date, we also have to factor in the men who are spying on those criminals, who are gathering up those secrets and using them to commit their own brand of meta-crime.

And in the financial arena, that means we think of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan as perpetrators, yes, but we also think about the men who already know everything about GS and Morgan, and are using this knowledge to steal sums that might make GS and Morgan blush with envy.

No, we’re not in Kansas anymore. But wherever we’ve gone to, the NSA is already there, and they may have been tapping in, taking out, and using untold bits of data to stage and profit from events of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Time, in that sense, has ballooned, expanded, turned inside out, exploded, and laid itself flat on a table, for close inspection by the eyes of Surveillance Central.

Understanding this, we need to analyze what is happening in the world with a new dimension of criminal reality-maker in mind.

The meta-criminal.
