Boom—how and why the CDC can foist toxic vaccines on the American people
From Kennedy’s video presentation, “7 Minutes on the CDC,” Anne Dachel (Age of Autism) has transcribed excerpts. This is explosive material, particularly because there is a chance Kennedy will head up an investigation of vaccine safety under Trump.
Kennedy understands the inherent conflict of interest at the CDC, which operates as a vaccine sales and marketing company, while at the same time posing as a neutral scientific body that assesses vaccine safety—AND OF COURSE, THE CDC PRESENTS AN EVER-EXPANDING SCHEDULE OF “NECESSARY” VACCINES TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Think of it: the CDC has the power—backed by federal and state governments, and supported by the fake-news media—to buy and…

California is about as “blue” of a state as you can get. It might get some competition in this regard from New York or Massachusetts for example, but as a liberal stronghold, it’s hard to beat California. That’s not to say that there are not areas where you find conservatives in the majority, you do. But these areas tend to be outside the big cities, so the population centers like San Francisco call the shots on any state-wide elections. Hence the state, as a whole, can be depended on to support liberal ideas and candidates.
In California, they have recently created “sanctuary cities,” which are municipalities that have chosen to defy federal immigration laws and authorities by refusing to cooperate with federal officers in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws. As such, they provide a sanctuary or refuge to which illegal immigrants can flee to avoid arrest and subsequent deportation. Hence, we have the preposterous situation of local and federal law enforcement officers working against each other. Such was one of the fruits of Mr. Obama’s failed presidency.
Of course, these sanctuary cities are not only violating the law themselves, but are assisting the illegal immigrants to do the same. It’s a pitiful and absurd situation that cries out for strong action. With Mr. Trump now in charge, things are very likely to change. But before that happens, it turns out that the citizens, even in an overwhelmingly liberal state such as California, are not entirely comfortable with this sanctuary city business as a recent poll just revealed.
It may very well be that the “Not in my back yard!” doctrine might be at work in California. This is something of a casual way to describe issues like the safe storage of nuclear waste. People are all for setting up locations where nuclear waste can be dumped and stored safely, just so long as these sites are “not in my back yard.” Store it safely, just store it somewhere else is the thinking. Could this be what Californians are thinking about sanctuary cities?
Perhaps. Whatever their motivation, it looks like residents of California want no part of sanctuary cities. We learned that, “Roughly 74 percent of California residents want to see an end to sanctuary city policies, according to a poll by UC Berkeley. The issue to end sanctuary cities in the state crosses racial and party lines, with 65 percent of Hispanics registering their agreement, while 70 percent of independents, 82 percent of Republicans, and 73 percent of Democrats feel the same.”
That is a very convincing majority. Clearly Mr. Obama failed miserably to get Californians on board with this idea. And if the residents of California, with its large Hispanic population oppose sanctuary cities, what is the chance that other states will be accepting? Not very likely.
Mr. Trump is on the right side of the law when it comes to his immigration policies. In this case, it would appear that a majority of the citizens of California would agree with him – which is almost sort of scary.
Maybe Californians oppose sanctuary cities on principle, or maybe they just don’t want them in their own “back yards.” Either way, the proponents of fashioning places to which illegal immigrants can flee to avoid the enforcement of the laws have a difficult job ahead of them. Good. Score yet another win for Mr. Trump and his policies.
After nearly 100 days without adequate proof of life, Julian Assange has confirmed that he is alive and well in the embassy. After re-scheduling his Reddit AMA last week, Assange has finally appeared before the public and answered their questions. To give adequate proof of life, Assange did a stream where he answered the Reddit questions live. During that time, Assange answered a number of questions about what happened over at Wikileaks over the past couple of months while giving verifiable proof of life.
Starts at 14:32
Assange even recognized the most active websites and subreddits discussing the leaks, giving a shoutout to Reddit, Voat, 4Chan, /r/Wikileaks, /r/the_donald and /r/dncleaks.
One of the most upvoted questions during the Assange AMA was what had happened in October. If you’re not familiar, things got a little weird over at Wikileaks around the beginning of October, more so when Assange’s Internet connection had been intentionally severed by Ecuador. When Assange’s Internet was cut, on October 15th, many began to fear about Assange’s whereabouts and well-being as he had not been seen alive since October 4th. Shortly after this occurred, many seemingly bizarre things began to occur over at Wikileaks. Fast forward to January 2016 and we still did not have concrete proof of life or proof that Wikileaks was indeed not compromised.
During the live AMA, Assange addressed his entire October, first noting that he has been stuck in the embassy for 4 years, a small embassy that is. He then went on to point out that Britsih police were setting up extremely intrusive surveillance measures, some as far as mini cameras pointing directly into the embassy. This began all while bizarre things going on at the locations neighboring the embassy as well.
Assange said there was immense pressure put on Wikileaks and Ecuador during this time, the country that has granted Assange political asylum. Assange’s full answer gives a much more detailed look into what was going on around October.
One point Assange made explicitly clear in the AMA, is that even is Assange ceased to exist, Wikileaks would still continue its mission. After answering what happening in October, confirming that Wikileaks was not compromised, Assange continued to explain that there is no single point of failure in the organization.
“We’re setup to continue on regardless of what happens to me. No one person in WikiLeaks can become a single point of failure” Assange explained. “Why? Because we don’t want to fail, number one. Number two because if that person is perceived to be a single point of failure, it places that person in danger.”
Assange addressed another extremely popular questions that most supporters were dying to know, why the tone change in October? According to Assange, himself among a number of others manage the official Wikileaks Twitter. He said after his Internet was cut, it made it extremely difficult for his team to get input from him.
While this doesn’t entirely address why the Twitter seems to have gotten a little biased, it does definitely coincide, assuming the Twitter is a team effort.
Shortly after the Tweet went live, mainstream media writers took straight to their keyboards, publishing dozens of articles pushing the narrative that Wikileaks plan was to dox all verified Twitter users and publicly publish their information. Even after the task force made it clear that was never their intent, mainstream media kept peddling their headlines.
Assange finally addressed the headline, confirming it was a completely “false story.” The support group’s intent was to gather data points and craft a graph to expose who influences Twitter’s top influencers. This would have pertained to gathering information on top influencers investors and donations they received.
The group never proceeded any further than asking the question, however, the media misconstrued the tweet to epic proportions.
Another issue Assange cleared up was the RNC info they never published. Earlier in the year during the election cycle, Wikileaks said that they had received information on the RNC and were currently reviewing it. After Wikileaks had stated they received RNC information they suddenly went silent, not publishing the RNC info or talking about it further.
Assange said that after their publication had accurately reviewed the information, they had found it was already public. Meaning there was never any RNC leak, it was just public information recycled.
Many users hammered Assange over the release strategy of the emails, which one Reddit user best described as a “slow trickle.” Assange gave a quite detailed answer that outlined the publications strategy excellently.
Assange said their strategy was for as much exposure as possible. He first pointed out that dumping over 30,000 emails at one time would be far to much for any publication or human to handle. Making the leaks extremely ineffective. Second, he pointed out that Wikileaks has a system for supply and demand, ensuring that they never over saturate users.
Assange said Wikileaks wanted to ensure that there was enough demand to continue to supply the thousands upon thousands of emails on a consistent basis. The slow trickle allowed journalists and the public to delicately comb through the emails on a timely basis.
He continued, explaining that the publications algorithm, known as the Stochastic Terminator, was designed to be unpredictable. This way, media conglomerates would have a hard time spinning the publications in advanced, as they normally do.
This is why the Wikileaks publications were always sudden, containing an odd number of emails each time with some leaks dropping multiple days in a row, while others took several weeks to drop. This caused media organizations “crisis teams” and “war rooms” to be extremely ineffective.
To clear up the entire mainstream media narrative, a number of Reddit users viciously asked Assange if Wikileaks has any type affiliation or influence from the Russian government? And to no surprise, Assange once again confirmed that they never have.
Assange said due to the publication’s credibility, the media has to make very targeted ad hominem attacks in an attempt to color the organization and everyone involved. It’s easy for anybody to see that Wikileaks is not controlled by Russian influence. If you go back just a few years ago to the Iraq logs and even years before, you can clearly see media painting Assange as some sort of covert agent for a different country every time.
Assange, once again, reiterated that Wikileaks has published more than 800,000 documents directly related to Russia and Vladamir Putin, most of which were critical. He has made it clear that the publication has zero government influence and is strictly funded by readers.
A couple of Reddit users asked Assange about the odd happenings over on the /r/Wikileaks subreddit. In October, after a sudden shakeup, 6 new moderators were suddenly added, and the entire subreddit took a noticeable nosedive.
Assange cleared up the air by confirming that Wikileaks has never controlled nor had any affiliation with the /r/Wikileaks subreddit.
One serious question many users asked Assange in the thread was what happened regarding the series of pre-commitment hashes that didn’t appear to match up at a later time.
“This is an obvious confusion promoted by the black-PR campaign against WikiLeaks and those it has manipulated,” Assange explained. “Pre-commitment hashes are not the same as download hashes. The pre-commmit hashes were issued in a completely different manner and are applied on decryption not before. So the ‘usual’ argument is an obvious falsehood.
“It also makes no motivational sense. Why would anyone publish obviously bogus hashes? The whole point is that they can be easily checked.”
Assange addressed the question, but there wasn’t much he could do to verify his statements without releasing the insurance torrent. He did give a plausible answer that could have cleared up the entire hash argument.
Assange has finally verified that he is alive by addressing recent topics that could not have been fabricated. First, Assange went and got the most recent block from the Blockchain and read it off live. After he read it out, someone on his team pointed out that he made a small error, Assange quickly fixed his error after a small laugh, noting this is how you know it’s real, “because of mistakes.” Great to see Julian be a little more light-hearted here.
Second, Assange read off the most recent sports scores from the night previous. Giving two strongly verifiable pieces of evidence that he is alive and in the embassy.
Assange did repeatedly thank everyone for the immense outreach to ensure that he was safe and alive. He even pointed out that he believes the intense pressure that the Internet had put on Assange and Ecuador is what eventually led to his Internet being restored.
Julian Assange did confirm that Wikileaks does have a tough year ahead of them and asked supporters to donate to help fight the cause. Rest easy, Assange is alive and well.
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information technology announced Sunday that the country will begin a major crackdown on VPN providers, a service that encrypts millions of Internet users connections and allows Chinese residents a look into the outside world, one which is usually blocked by the country’s infamous “great firewall”. According to the ministry “all special cable and VPN services on the mainland needed to obtain prior government approval – a move making most VPN service providers illegal,” the South China Morning Post reported, a major newspaper from Hong Kong.
The alleged “clean-up” of the nation’s Internet begins immediately and will run until March 31 2018, the official notice reads.
According to the Chinese ministry, the country’s Internet service market “has signs of disordered development that require urgent regulation and governance,” alleging a crackdown on unregulated connections aims to “strengthen cyberspace information security management.”
Major VPN providers including VyprVPN and ExpressVPN told the Morning Post that their companies were aware of the issue. Representatives from both providers said their companies are working to address the issue very soon.
China’s infamous “great firewall” of censorship blocks access to a number of the world’s most popular domains including Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Tumblr, The New York Times and Instagram. According to GreatFire.org, an organization that keeps an active eye on China’s ongoing censorship, notes that China blocks access to 143 of the 1,000 most popular websites in the world.
Due to ongoing censorship, many Chinese citizens have been forced to turn to VPN providers and alternative ways to access their Internet in an uncensored fashion. This is not the first time China has cracked down on VPN providers, back in March of 2016, during the National People’s Congress meeting in Beijing, many Internet users reported their paid-for VPN providers were having severe issues for up to a week.
It’s believed that China is tightening its already oppressive hand on Internet censorship in preparation for this autumn’s 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, a once-in-a-decade event in which a new party leader will be elected. Just two days ago, two websites run by a liberal think tank, alongside 15 other sites, were shut down by China.
The latest crackdown can be seen in affect as many social media users from China have begun to complain that their VPN services are slowing or failing entirely. Many citizens have expressed fear of loosing touch with the world outside the “great firewall” or being held accountable for circumventing censorship using a VPN.
As anti-censorship tools run scarce in China, many Internet users fear of losing contact with the world outside China’s hand. We’d urge everyone in, or planning to visit China, to have an up-to-date copy of the Tor Browser. If the main site is ban in your location, there are dozens of reliable mirrors of the software for this exact reason. Users in censorship-heavy or high-surveillance areas are advised to use a Tor Bridge, an obfuscation tactic that will make your traffic appear as if it’s coming from Google, Amazon or another common website.

“That we see the left aligned with the ruling elites against Trump is proof that the left has abandoned the working class.”
“Clearly, the pathetic remnant of the American left has more hate for those who stand up for the working class than they have for those oppressing the working class and those fomenting war. Why did the women so quick to march against Trump not march against the Clinton, Bush/Cheney, and Obama regimes for killing, maiming, orphaning, widowing, and dislocating millions of peoples in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and Syria?”
