Maybe DeKalb County, GA Has Not Heard That Biden Has Declared the COVID Plandemic Is Over

I was reading an AJC article a few minutes ago: “DeKalb offering $100 gift cards for COVID shots at weekend event” https://www.ajc.com/neighborhoods/dekalb/dekalb-offering-100-gift-cards-for-covid-shots-at-weekend-event/Y2T4XUNRPZAETGESI6L7MZDGRY/

DeKalb County

By Tyler Estep, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The article states: DeKalb County will host a large-scale COVID-19 vaccination event this weekend, offering $100 prepaid debit cards to anyone who gets their first shot or a booster.

Officials said clear bookbags filled with school supplies will also be distributed at the event, which is scheduled for Saturday morning in the parking lot outside the Mall at Stonecrest. UniverSoul Circus performers will provide entertainment.

The article references the previous drive to get vaccines from October 2021: “More than 2,100 people received COVID-19 vaccinations during DeKalb County’s latest event offering $100 prepaid debit cards to folks who got the shot.” https://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta-news/2100-people-vaccinated-at-dekalbs-latest-event-with-100-incentive/76TLN3RVG5FNTILOFK7HXXH4AE/

In the current article it states: “DeKalb officials said 62% of county residents have been vaccinated, but only 32% have then received a booster.” The article goes on to state: “Those interested are encouraged to pre-register at dekalbcountyga.gov/getvaxxed to minimize their wait time. Vaccines are free but attendees are asked to bring a photo ID, insurance information, and existing CDC vaccinations cards, if available”.

It makes one wonder if DeKalb County pays attention to what Biden has stated, or if the County makes these things up on their own. I know I have heard Biden himself say that the Plannedemic has ended. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/biden-says-pandemic-is-over-in-us/ar-AA11YplV

Why would DeKalb County still be having these vaccination drives. Could it be that the gene therapy experiment (passed off as a vaccine) is going to continue. Maybe no one saw the information where Dr Borx of the CDC said that they knew when they began pushing the vaccine, that it was not going to work as a vaccine? https://www.westernjournal.com/dr-birxs-bombshell-vaccine-admission-knew-vaccines-wouldnt-protect-infection/

For a govt., DeKalb County sure is taking a lot upon themselves by ignoring these important facts. So they know more than the CDC and the President that they elected? What would the purpose be in continuing to bribe people to take these gene therapy shots, while lying to the citizens and telling them that it is a vaccine? And why push an alleged vaccine, when there is no longer a plannedemic?

Flags

It is all kind of scary to me. They make sure that there are people out here, that are suffering from the inflation that the govt tries to pretend don’t exist, and bribe people to get deadly shots by giving them $100 gift cards, and school supplies. I am surprised that people still send their kids to public schools, or that they are not home schooling after seeing the bullshit they are teaching kids, and watching grade school teachers on Tik Tok laugh about the fact that they get away with teaching boys that they want to be girls, and teaching girls that they want to be boys, and puberty blocking, and teaching kids that they want genitalia mutilation. WTF?

Then the “systemic racism” that the County claims exists. The only systemic racism I have seen is against whites. DeKalb County has been majority black for quite some time. All one has to do, is go to DeKalb County courthouse and see who is treated less favorably, to see the whites in this county are being discriminated against, not the blacks. So when the county personnel are crying about systemic racism, it really confuses a person.

All lives matter. I am part Native American, which peoples throughout history in this country, have been treated worse than the blacks were treated, and I hold no animosity toward any people, no matter their color. But apparently, when Obama became president, he got out his shit stirring stick and stirred up some shit.

The only way the globalists can succeed in their quest, is to have the people divided and hating one another. Together the American people are strong and firm, we could prevent the taking over of the world. But the years of dumbing Americans down, has taken it’s toll, just like the feminizing of American men has taken it’s toll. Too many Americans would not know the truth, if it came up and sat on them. They are way too used to being controlled. We are doomed.

Biden Signals Death Of Trump With Nazi Symbol Display Over America

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

https://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index4001.htm?cmid=251c2aa6-29ec-4c54-91fe-69996f967e4c

A beyond gobsmacking new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first confirming President Putin will not travel to the United States to attend the opening of the United Nations General Assembly next month, nor address it online, with him, instead, signing a directive designating Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as the head of the Russian delegation, says quick to follow was Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky demanding that the socialist Western colonial powers ban Russian peoples from traveling anywhere in the world, with him declaring: “Russians should live in their own world until they change their philosophy”—was a socialist Western colonial racist declaration against the Slavic Russian Christian peoples quickly responded to with the announcement: “On 8 August 2022, the Russian Federation officially informed the United States via diplomatic channels that our country is temporarily exempting its facilities from inspection activities under the New START Treaty”—and was near immediately followed by the socialist Biden Regime announcing its largest military aid package for Kiev since Russia launched the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine in February.

Forcing President Putin to cancel his yearly visit to the United States to attend the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly, this report notes, were Russian intelligence analysts warning that the current conditions existing in America have become near identical to those that existed in 1917 that ignited the Russian Revolution—a revolution of godless socialist forces against the Russian Christian peoples, whose counterpart today sees Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden engaged in a death battle against President Donald Trump—a death battle President Trump is clearly winning, as documented in last week’s leftist NBC News article ‘The 800-Pound Gorilla’: Trump Boosts Endorsement Record With Arizona And Michigan Wins”, wherein it revealed: “Since leaving office last year, 188 candidates backed by the former president have won primaries, 14 have lost and two dropped out or were disqualified before Election Day”.

With President Trump endorsed candidates nearing more wins in today’s primary elections, this report continues, it follows the stunning news that emerged yesterday from socialist Democrat Party iron grip controlled Washington State, where after a week of counting votes, it was assailed by shocking articles like “Trump-Endorsed Joe Kent Has HIS OWN BALLOT Rejected After Wildly Delayed Election Count In Washington Primary Election”—quickly after which other articles began appearing like “BREAKING BIG: Joe Kent WINS Washington Primary Against Trump-Hater Jaime Herrera Beutler”. 

As word began spreading yesterday that socialist Democrat Party forces in Washington State had no choice other than to certify President Trump endorsed candidate Joe Kent as the victor in last week’s primary election, this report details, it saw socialist Deputy White House Press Secretary Andrew Bates responding to this crushing defeat by posting an image of Socialist Leader Biden against the background of the German Nazi Reich Eagle with the caption: “The Dark Brandon Rises—a vile and demonic display of Nazi imagery over America immediately responded to by Donald Trump Jr., who posted the message: “So Biden’s Deputy White House Press Secretary, @Andrewjbates46, is posting literal Nazi memes on Twitter and our corrupt media is completely silent about it”.

Following the socialist Biden Regime displaying demonic Nazi imagery over America, this report notes, President Trump announced to the world “These are dark times” and beyond shockingly revealed that Socialist Leader Biden had unleashed machine gun-toting FBI agents against his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida—saw President Trump further revealing that his Mar-a-Lago residence was “currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents”—a socialist siege documented in articles like “Stasi-FBI Swooped Through President Trump’s Home — Grabbing Boxes without Going Through Them or Knowing What’s In Them — TO GO THROUGH LATER AND MANUFACTURE A CRIME”—saw Eric Trump revealing that FBI agents ransacked President Trump’s office, and cracked opened his private safe that was empty—saw Lara Trump telling the American people: “What has happened today should shake you to your core!”—and whose real truth about this socialist siege is documented in just published articles like “History Repeats Itself: Democrats Are Using Tactics of the Marxists of 1917 in Russia – Their Final Assault on America Begins – Tonight”.https://rumble.com/embed/v1cocid/?pub=15u3sx

The sole purpose of the Nazi siege on Mar-a-Lago ordered by Socialist Leader Biden, this report continues, is documented in leftist articles like “The FBI Raid On Mar-a-Lago Will Either Make Donald Trump A Criminal Or A Martyr”, wherein it reveals these socialist forces are attempting a political assassination of President Trump to keep him from running for the presidential office in 2024 by preparing to criminally charge him for violating 18 USC 2071, that prohibits taking classified documents home, saying in part that a person removing any “book, paper, document or other thing shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than three years, or both”, and adds that anyone in possession of such documents “shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States”.

As crowds of President Trump supporters gathered around Mar-a-Lago last evening correctly saying these godless socialist forces are “They’re terrified of him” and are “Trying to prevent him from running for office again”, this report continues, top Republican Party leader Florida Governor Ron DeSantis factually assessed: “The raid of Mar-a-Lago is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves…Now the Regime is getting another 87,000 IRS agents to wield against its adversaries…We are now a Banana Republic”—a factual assessment joined by former top President Trump official Michael Caputo gravely warning: “America is in a full-blown constitutional crisis…The American people have endured a slow, creeping attack on our nation…I had a front row seat in the Russia hoax, and I’ve watched it get steadily and methodically worse ever since…With this militant raid on President Trump’s home, we have become Russia…The FBI is the KGB…I should know…I’ve seen them both in action and I see no difference at all”.

Quickly following the grave warning that the siege of Mar-a-Lago proves America has now turned into Russia when it was despotically ruled over by socialists, this report notes, Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who after the Republicans retake control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections will be third in line for the presidency, posted the warning message: “I’ve seen enough…The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization…When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned….Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar”—a warning quickly followed by the chilling article “The FBI And DOJ Criminalizing Opposition To The Regime Is How The Republic Ends”—in the just published article “The FBI Raided Trump Because He’s A Threat To The Deep State” it grimly assesses: “The intelligence apparatus is targeting Donald Trump in an attempt to disqualify him from running for president in 2024…If Trump becomes the forty-seventh president of the United States, he will bring with him an ambition to root out the people who wronged and waylaid him and his voters, most of whom are apparatchiks of the federal bureaucracy…If he is able to reform and reshape the government by removing these entrenched figures and subsequently hands control of the government back to the public by restoring the federal balance of power, he will delegitimize the rule of faceless bureaucrats and largely invalidate the left’s stranglehold on national politics…Therefore, Trump cannot be allowed to win, let alone run for, the presidency”—and is a grim assessment now joined by former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik posting the dire warning message: “If today’s raid by Biden’s FBI does not stop Donald Trump from running for president in 2024, their next move will be Assassination”.

With the socialist Biden Regime having clearly signaled with their demonic Nazi symbol display the political, if not outright, death of President Trump, this report concludes, last evening it saw famed American conservative political analyst Dr. Gina Loudon most correctly telling the under socialist siege American people: “What this night represents is the government, the insidious, deep state Marxism is coming for you and me…This is not about Trump…Just like he said from the very beginning, this is about you and me”—a statement of truth followed by President Trump posting a 3-minute, 50-seconds-long defiant video message to the American people, that he ended with the declaration: “There is no mountain we cannot climb, there is no summit we cannot reach, there is no challenge we cannot meet…We will not bend, we will not break, we will not yield…The tyrants we are fighting do not stand even a little chance because we are Americans and Americans kneel to God and God alone”.

Reiner Füllmich & 50 lawyers: ”The vaccines are designed to kill and depopulate the planet”

Reiner Füllmich & 50 lawyers: ”The vaccines are designed to kill and depopulate the planet”

After hearing the witness statements to the German Corona Investigative Committee by former vice president of Pfizer dr Mike Yeadon who has been a scientist for 36 years, lawyers with Reiner Füllmich draw the same conclusion: The injections normally called Corona vaccines are designed to experiment on the human race and to find out what dosage of a yet unknown toxin is needed in order to kill people. The mortality rate linked to the vaccines, according to Yeadon, is traceable in terms of lot numbers of the different batches, as some batches appear to be more lethal than others. When taking a look at the evidence available, the main goal with the injections all over the world is global depopulation, according to the lawyers involved. Dr Füllmich told Perspektiv that the lawyers preparing an international law suit were no longer in doubt: Poisoning and mass murder through so called Corona vaccines is intentionally being perpetrated on the peoples of the world.

Citizen Journalist Ulf Bittner from EU/EES Healthcare blog and Sverige Granskas stated in the interview that the situation with traceable lot numbers and injuries and death related to lot numbers is similar in the different health care regions of Sweden. Bittner is in contact with a vaccine coordinator who has provided documents to keep track of how many people have been injured and lost their lives related to the different batches of the so-called vaccines.

01:00 Different numbers on the barcodes on the bottom of the vaccine doses are placebo which has been given to politicians according to a Slovenian chief nurse. Is it the same in other countries?

1:54 Mike Yeadon and the LOT numbers of some shots of the brands Moderna, Johnson& Johnson and Pfizer/Biontech are related to much higher mortality than for the other manufacturers.

3:52 The producers of the so-called vaccines are experimenting with the correct dosages to kill people according to Dr Füllmich. This according to the Corona Investigative Committee, constitute compelling evidence for punitive damages and attempted mass murder. They are intentionally killing people.

08:30 Lawyers from India have filed complaints for premeditative murder.

09:55 Mike Yeadon as a witness for the coming legal action against the perpetrators.

10:44 Everyone who critizises the wrongdoings of the governments of the world is being called a ‘right wing extremist’. This has also happened to the internationally renowned scientist Mike Yeadon.

13:05 CDC withdrew the recommendation for the PCR-tests diagnosing SARS-CoV-2 from 31/12-2021. PCR- tests are the foundation of the pandemic. Why is Anthony Fauci now doing a 180-degree turn?

17:25 At least a million dollars per person will be claimed in punitive damages if the lawsuit is successful.

18:33 Previously only ten percent of all adverse effects were reported. In the situation the world is right now, the team estimated that in fact only one percent of all adverse effects were being reported.

19:25 CEO of Life insurance company from Indiana USA with 100 billions of dollars in assets said: ”Over the span of this past year there has been an excess mortality of 40 percent”. This is believed to be due to the injections.

21:05 What substance in the vials makes them so lethal? Is it Graphene Oxide/graphene hydroxide?

22:37 Any vaccin is a poison, it is the dosage which makes the difference. This is not a vaccine, as a vaccine provides immunity, while these products demand incessant injections. Either a vaccine works or it does not.

24:40 This is not gene therapy either, since a gene therapy means exchanging a broken gene with a fixed one. This is more like experimenting on people, and trying to kill us.

25.15 The doses are not tested by governments, while governments will be keeping the contracts hidden from the public for at least 55 years. How is this affecting the possibility of getting people punished? Dr Füllmich goes through all the lies paving the way for the tyrannical situation the world is now in.

28:25 The vaccines are neither safe nor effective. The producers are experimenting on lethal doses of poison. Everyone now taking part in intentional malicious infliction of harm will be punished.

30:05 How sure are legal experts about the conclusion that Mike Yeadon has drawn from this, that it is all about depopulation and intentionally killing people through injections? If close to 50 lawyers are of the same opinion, it is regarded as “irrefutable proof”.

32:08 Batches of injections in Sweden can be traced by an application.

32:45 Füllmich is in cooperation with people working within the secret service of Germany who do not wish to take the injections.

34:15 Dr Lee Merritt on combat pilots in the USA refusing to get the shots. According to Dr Füllmich, Dr Merrit explained: ”They understood that if they were forced to [get vaccinated] they were going to get killed.”

35:15 Information is being collected on batches in Sweden from every region, the Swedish health authorities (Folkhälsomyndigheten) and medical board (Läkemedelsverket). Every batch is traceable through an application. There is economic reward for the Swedish regions which manage to get more people injected. One of the expert lawyers involved in the upcoming court hearings is a specialist on Nuremberg Trials.

38:45 How will the trials be performed, and through what legal structure? A common design, the same structure as for the Nuremberg trials.

39:40 Free choice should reign for members of the European Union. Consumers of health care have consumer rights. Fraud means misleading the people and consumers of health care.

42:00 The so called vaccines are an adulterated product put on to the market. According to Mike Yeadon there is a law in the US that will make everyone liable for the harms created by the adulterated product. Toxins are being put into the vials other than the known lipids etc, which the people who took the vaccines never consented to.

43:40 The importance of decentralization of power and national independence rather than global organizations such as the European Union telling the people what to do. Disconnecting from the banking system, NGO:s and creating independent and strong agricultural supply chains, energy supply chains etc.

46:15 When are the trials going to take place? How will the indicements happen and how will the trials be held? One of the goals is to inform people and expose the wrongdoings by involving the alternative media so that the mainstream media won’t be able to ignore the trials. The crew is working on a new system of law in the USA, Africa and Germany.

50:48 Dr Füllmich believes the world is close to a tipping point and the whole narrative will fall apart very very soon, maybe in a couple of weeks or months.

54:13 Robert Malone, Robert F Kennedy and Mike Yeadon and others involved in exposing the agenda are in contact with each other, and a tour is planned with these whistleblowers in the USA in March

Here’s What’s In The House’s Massive $37B Defense Budget Boost

If the House Armed Services Committee’s current amendment were passed in full, it would result in the biggest primary defense budget ever.

The House Armed Services Committee gave initial approval Wednesday afternoon to a $37 billion increase to the Fiscal Year 2023 Pentagon budget request that would add funding for additional ships, aircraft, missile and air defense systems, ammunition and munitions technology improvements, among other things. 

If the amendment, introduced by Reps. Elaine Luria (D-VA) and Jared Golden (D-ME), passes through the various legislative hoops – including a full committee vote on a final draft likely later tonight or early tomorrow – and is signed into law, the new Defense Department budget would raise from $773 billion to $810 billion. That would be the biggest Defense Department budget in history.

We’ve listed some of the highlights of the additional budget requests.

Ships

The amendment calls for $1.2 billion in incremental funding for one additional Flight III Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, $2.4 billion for an additional Constellation-class frigate, an additional T-AO oiler, two additional Expeditionary Medical Ships, and $318 million to restore five Littoral Combat Ships (LCS), as well as $59 million to restore two Expeditionary Transfer Dock Ships that were set to be retired.

Aircraft

The measure would add $660 million for eight additional F/A-18 fighter jets and $1.3 billion for other Navy and Marine Corps aircraft, including two E-2D Advanced Hawkeye early warning aircraft, five KC-130 Hercules tanker-cargo planes for the Navy and Marine Corps and two CMV-22 Osprey tilt rotor aircraft for the Navy. There would also be $884 million to procure an additional four Air Force EC-37B Compass Call aircraft.

Air and missile defense

The amendment calls for an additional $1 billion for four additional Patriot air defense units to equip the 16th Patriot Battalion and $200 million for 20 additional Terminal High Altitude Air Defense (THAAD) interceptors.

Ammunition, munitions plants and technology

The measure calls for $178 million for safety and modernization upgrades to the military’s ammunition industrial base, $400 million for munitions technology development and more than $73 million to purchase 5.56 mm, 7.62 mm and 50 caliber ammunition.

Ukraine Security Assistance 

The measure would add $550 million for Ukraine security assistance, as well as costs for advance planning to support presence on the Eastern front.

The measure passed the committee by a 42-17 margin.

“We need only look to world events in Ukraine reports regarding China’s plans and actions in the South China Sea, or simply read the latest headlines about Iranian nuclear ambitions and North Korean missile tests and close ongoing terrorist threats in order to see why this funding is necessary to meet the security challenges of our time,” Golden said, in support of his amendment. “At the same time, the inflationary pressures that are impacting economies worldwide are hampering our military’s ability to purchase new equipment, invest in emerging technologies and to adequately pay and support our greatest national security asset – the men and women in uniform.”

Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) lauded the measure because it increases the Army’s stock of 5.56 mm, 7.62 mm, and 50 caliber ammunition by 8.5 percent over the Presidential budget.

“This funding will help ensure we are meeting both the demands of our military and able to maintain a highly-skilled workforce as we prepare for the production of 6.8 mm ammunition for the Next Generation Squad Weapon.” You can read all about this new family of weapons here.

Hartzler said she was also happy that the measure includes $95 million in additional funding for urgently needed safety updates at the Lake City Army ammunition plant in Missouri.

The biggest complaints raised at the hearing about the measure centered on the LSC funding.

“I strongly object to restoring five of the LCSs when the President has asked for nine of them to be decommissioned,” said Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA). “We all know what lemon cars are. We have a fleet of lemon LCS ships. We have spent billions of dollars on this fleet when they have no capability to help us deal with our largest threat, which is China and Russia. The only winners have been the contractors on which the Navy relies for sustaining these ships.”

Though this measure would increase the Defense Department budget by nearly 5%, there is a long way to go before it becomes a reality.

First, it has to be passed out of the committee in the final draft of the Fiscal Year National Defense Authorization Act, a vote that will likely take place later today or early tomorrow morning. Then it would have to pass the full House of Representatives, survive a conference with the Senate, which is seeking an additional $45 billion for the Defense Department budget, and ultimately, be signed into law by President Joe Biden.

There will be a lot more debate about these issues and The War Zone will take deeper dives into some of the specific systems and capabilities at stake as the process grinds on.

Words from Henry Kissinger About the State of America

Henry Kissinger Says US ‘Infinitely’ More Polarised Today Than During Vietnam War

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin - Sputnik International, 1920, 12.06.2022

© Sputnik / Alexei Druzhinin

 Reposted under the fair use doctrine.

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger recently shared his opinion of the Ukraine crisis and Russia’s ongoing special military operation in that country. At the latest World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, he suggested that it was time for Kiev to think about a diplomatic settlement of the conflict, even if that means territorial concessions.

Henry Kissinger, a geopolitics colossus who turned 99 on 27 May, has claimed that the US is “infinitely” more divided today than at the time of the Vietnam War (1955-1975).

The former US Secretary of State to presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, whose book, Leadership, is set to come out on July 5, offered his opinion of the present state of US internal politics, the Ukraine crisis and US the stand-off with China in an exclusive interview for The Sunday Times.

‘Unremitting Hostility of the Opposition’

The patriarch of international politics deplored the partisan antipathy that has surged in the US over the past several decades. The American National Election Studies surveys and polls have increasingly shown that Democrats and Republicans view members of the other party more as enemies than simply as political opponents.

According to Kissinger, in the early Seventies, there was “still a possibility of bipartisanship” in the US, before the “hostility” firmly took root.

“The national interest was a meaningful term, it was not in itself a subject of debate. That has ended. Every administration now faces the unremitting hostility of the opposition and in a way that is built on different premises … The unstated but very real debate in America right now is about whether the basic values of America have been valid,” underscored Kissinger, a Republican since the Fifties.

The “values” in question refer to the sacrosanct status of the American Constitution and the “primacy of individual liberty and equality before the law”, the publication explained.

GOP Group Planning Dramatic Foreign Policy Shift; Lavrov Icy Towards Reconciliation with the West

25 May, 08:36 GMT

Kissinger deplored the stance espoused at present by the “progressive left,” which, according to him, argues that “unless these basic values are overturned, and the principles of [their] execution altered, we have no moral right even to carry out our own domestic policy, much less our foreign policy”.

Kissinger warned that this is “not a common view yet, but it is sufficiently virulent to drive everything else in its direction and to prevent unifying policies … [It] is [a view held] by a large group of the intellectual community, probably dominating all universities and many media.”

Kissinger offered a dire warning of what such “unbridgeable divisions” are fraught with.

“Either the society collapses and is no longer capable of carrying out its missions under either leadership, or it transcends them …”

The veteran foreign policy scholar agreed that sometimes an “external shock” or an “external enemy” was resorted to to bridge this “divide”.

Situation in Ukraine

Ukraine Should Ideally Become Neutral State, Ex-US Secretary of State Kissinger Says

23 May, 16:29 GMT

At this point Kissinger broached the subject of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, where Russia launched a special military operation to demilitarise and de-Nazify the country on 24 February after the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) appealed for help in defending themselves against shelling from Ukrainian forces.

Kissinger recently sparked controversy by his brief virtual speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos on 23 May. Movement toward peace negotiations between Russia and Ukraine needs to begin within the next two months or so, he said, before the conflict escalates to a point where tensions are much harder to overcome.

Kissinger, known for his efforts to ease tensions between the US and the Soviet Union, emphasised Russia’s importance to Europe and, in his Davos address, urged western countries not to get swept up “in the mood of the moment”, as he advocated that the West pressure Kiev into accepting negotiations even if that means territorial concessions.

The seasoned US scholar, renowned for his wise statements on geopolitics, faced a backlash for his calls for negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.

Kissinger, who played an integral role in developing the relationship between the US and the People’s Republic of China during the Nixon administration, found himself blacklisted by Ukraine’s notorious website Mirotvorets (Peacemaker) for “participation in Russia’s special information operation against Ukraine”. He was also charged with “propaganda, blackmail and encroachment on the territorial integrity of Ukraine”.

As western countries seek to isolate Russia with a sweeping sanctions policy while funnelling weapons into Ukraine and eyeing NATO expansion, Henry Kissinger predicted in The Sunday Times interview that “big issues are going to take place in the relations of the Middle East and Asia to Europe and America.”

US & UK Reportedly Pressuring Sweden, Finland to Give in to Turkey’s Demands Over NATO Bid

2 June, 12:35 GMT

Against the backdrop of squabbling over Finland and Sweden’s NATO membership bid with Turkey, Russia has continuously reiterated that further expansion of the NATO bloc will not bring greater security to Europe.

Kissinger, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, claimed the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is an “institution whose components don’t necessarily have compatible views. They came together on Ukraine because that was reminiscent of [older] threats and they did very well, and I support what they did. The question will now be how to end that war. At its end a place has to be found for Ukraine and a place has to be found for Russia – if we don’t want Russia to become an outpost of China in Europe.”

Obligation to Avert ‘Catastrophic Collision’

On the issue of China, Kissinger believed that Beijing and Washington were “facing each other as the ultimate contestants”, who are “governed by incompatible domestic systems”.

“And this is occurring when technology means that a war would set back civilisation, if not destroy it,” said Kissinger, agreeing that the two superpowers “have a minimum common obligation to prevent [a catastrophic collision] from happening”.

Kissinger concluded by acknowledging his profound concerns about the lack of a dialogue between superpowers, as “other countries will want to exploit this rivalry”.

“So we’re heading into a very difficult period,” Kissinger foretold.

Horsemen Of The Apocalypse Arrive In Europe As Trump Show Trial Nears

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

Reposted Under the Fair Use Doctrine

An intriguing new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting President Putin factually revealing that the American decision to print worthless US Dollars is behind soaring food prices, and instead of making some real steps to remedy the situation, the Western colonial powers just pin the blame on Moscow, with him stating: “Apparently, the US financial authorities assumed that since the dollar is the world currency, as in the old days, this would dissipate throughout the world economy and would not be noticeable in the States…It turned out that this was not the case”, says with Russia continuing to pivot to Asia as ties with the West crumble because of the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine, it now sees Iran proposing that the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), whose member states, including RussiaChina and India, comprise over half of humanity, introduce a new common currency to facilitate trade

Among those agreeing that it’s time for Russia to end all relations with the Western colonial powers, this report notes, is Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev, who just observed: “The Western countries have unfolded a cynical media campaign against Russia with the prime aim to discredit the country, its history and traditions, as well as to humiliate its people”—are Western colonial powers, however, whose very existence is now in doubt after top Ukrainian presidential adviser Alexey Arestovich threw away the promise made to the United States that they wouldn’t use American supplied long-range missiles to strike Russia territory, and openly declared: “Crimea is ours…It belongs to Ukraine…And they know it…Therefore, it will fly to Crimea double-time”—a declaration of madness that quickly followed Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev warning exactly what will happen if Ukraine uses the weapons it received from the United States to attack the territory of Russia, with him directly threatening: “If those types of weapons are used against the territory of Russia, the armed forces of our country will have no other choice but to strike decision-making centers…It is obvious what those decision-making centers are: the defense ministry, the general staff and so on…But it should be understood that, in this case, the ultimate decision-making centers are regretfully not even on the territory of Kiev…That is why it is certainly a threat that should be reckoned with”—a direct threat of total war against the “decision makers not on the territory of Kiev” that reside in Washington and Brussels now joined by United States Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command commander General Glen D. VanHerck warning American lawmakers that Russia is “churning out” unstoppable nuclear armed hypersonic missiles, and saw him grimly telling them: “Quite bluntly, my ability to conduct missions assigned to US NORTHCOM and NORAD has eroded and continues to erode”.

In directly addressing the Western colonial powers, this report continues, it saw Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova advising them: “Is a Third World War possible?…Perhaps, it is already underway?…What form will it take?…These are topics that many are discussing…Rather than talking about the World War Three, we’d be better off talking about how to prevent it”—then it saw her noting that for the past four years, Russia has been taking note of “the desire by the collective West to sweep away international law and introduce a rules-based world order instead”, about which she warned: “This is extremely dangerous because this implies a dictatorship of one group of countries thereby threatening to upset the balance worldwide, while making it impossible for other countries to pursue their interests…Every country has the right to sovereign foreign and domestic policy, to legally defend their interests, to develop their economy, to defend humanitarian rights, to protection and to their own security…When one group of countries grabs power or aspires to take it over, a lot of trouble can be expected…We tried to tell the global community about this in every way and convey this truth that the dictate of one pole is impossible and it will lead to destructive consequences”.

As to if the European Union will allow itself to suffer “destructive consequences” because the United States wants to rule over the entire world, this report details, some insightful clues have just been observed by top Kremlin geopolitical analyst Elena Karaeva, who, in her just released open letter “The Horsemen Of The Apocalypse Have Already Left For Europe”, notes that French publishing giant Le Figaro has begun openly questioning in all of its daily newspapers why the West is backing Ukraine in a war it cannot win and is not seeking to end it as soon as possible—is important to note because the Le Figaro publishing empire belongs to the Dassault family, that also owns the Dassault Aviation Corporation, one of the largest private contractors of the French defense department—facts causing Karaeva to assess: “Right now, Dassault and its owners are gently making it clear to the political establishment that they, this establishment, did not quite accurately (or completely inaccurately, depending on the angle of view) assess Russia’s capabilities and determination to defend its interests, just as they made a mistake in the potential of the Ukrainian authorities”—and sees her further assessing:

Paris, like official Berlin, and Rome, which has joined these two co-founders of the European Union, are less and less willing to listen to what they are being told from Kiev (and almost no longer pay attention to the tone of what was said, bordering on bizarre abuse), and to the fact that what Washington is trying to convince them of.

Neither France, nor Germany, nor Italy in any way wants to mess with the Russians when they meet them on the battlefield.

Despite all attempts to erase the memory of the power of Russian weapons and the Russian military spirit, the spinal cord of a united Europe still remembers perfectly what outcome awaits those who come to Russia with a sword.

The “Horsemen of the Apocalypse” are only unlocking the gates of the stable where their horses are.  Western Europe, hearing, of course, this creaking of the castle, cannot help but understand that it will be very difficult, if not impossible, to turn these horses around later.

Being aware of what this could threaten, even the European military-industrial complex and the European military are trying to stop the apocalypse by any means: either as the Dassault family or by various “leaks”.

But Europe, which ordered the fight, regardless of whether it wants it or not, at the moment when the order is received, will not be able to return everything “back”.   Even if the outcome, that is, the European loss, as well as the European break, in theory, is already a foregone conclusion

Within a few hours of Karaeva making her assessment that “the European military-industrial complex and  the European military are trying to stop the apocalypse by any means: either as the Dassault family or by various “leaks””, this report notes, a bombshell “leak” from Europe revealed: “According to the US media outlet CNN, citing “multiple sources familiar with the talks”, officials from Washington, London and Brussels “have in recent weeks been meeting regularly” in a bid to come up with a viable ceasefire and peace settlement framework for Ukraine…However, CNN pointed out that Kiev itself is conspicuously absent from the alleged talks, despite the Biden administration professing to adhere to a “nothing about Ukraine without Ukraine” principle”—a bombshell “leak” quickly followed by Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald factually telling the American people last evening during a Fox News interview: “In what way does this war serve the interests of the American people?…It doesn’t…Obviously, it serves the interest of a tiny sliver of people in Washington, weapons manufacturers, people in the security state who get money and power from these sorts of things…And right at the moment, when their market for these weapons disappeared, when the U.S. finally got out of Iraq and Afghanistan, lo and behold, there’s this new market in Ukraine”—and today it sees founding director Patrick Basham of the American think tank Democracy Institute revealing: “The majority of American respondents are resigned to Ukraine losing the conflict with Russia because they no longer trust Biden’s strategy, and 16 percent of Americans polled would like to see Vladimir Putin as their president”.

As to why a beyond shocking 16% of Americans polled would like to see President Putin as their leader, this report continues, becomes self explanatory when noticing that as these under socialist siege peoples are being economically destroyed by the hour, their suffering was ignored yesterday by Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden, who, instead of addressing the needs of his citizens, engaged in a teenage mean girl spat with the world’s richest man Elon Musk telling him to have “lots of luck in his trip to the Moon”.

Equally ignoring the needs of these under socialist siege Americans, this report details, is their so-called Department of Justice, that yesterday declined to prosecute former top White House officials Mark Meadows and Dan Scavino for ignoring subpoenas issued to them by socialist Democrats investigating 6 January events—at the same time, though, it did see the Department of Justice ordering the arrest and slapping into leg irons of former top White House official Peter Navarro for his ignoring the same exact subpoena Meadows and Scavino did, but whose real crime was Navarro vowing to impeach Biden the day prior—sees this third world banana republic type of injustice coming on the same day the socialist Democrats announced they will begin their 6 January show trail of President Donald Trump next week in prime time—a prime time ruled over by Fox News whose audience continued to grow in May while its main cable news rivals saw viewership declines—and as to whom is going to watch this socialist show trial today sees it being revealed: “Most of the American public has already made up its mind as to who are the heroes and the villains”. 

Most certainly watching Socialist Leader Biden, his lunatic show trial Democrats and insane Western colonial powers, however, this report continues, is the rest of the world that notices the West’s selective treatment of refugees, that can be seen in the warm welcome for white Ukrainians compared to those from other places where peoples of colour come from—is being watched by the African Union, that is now demanding that the Western colonial sanctions against Russia be immediately lifted before millions of Black Africans die of starvation—in watching this Western colonial racist insanity it caused former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to most correctly observe: “Russia is isolated from the West, but the West is isolated from the whole world”—and in explaining why “the West is isolated from the whole world”, yesterday it saw Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya forcefully and factually telling the United Nations:

The West ought to pay compensation to those who have suffered from its actions.

I would recommend to the collective West this one thing.  If you want to condemn aggression — start with yourselves.  Set an example by condemning your own military adventures, illegal economic restrictions, deadly colonial and neo-colonial wars, genocide, and robbery of indigenous peoples.

Start paying off compensations to states and nations that suffered from you.  Such a step would indeed bring us closer to having a more just world order that would have no place for anyone’s self-proclaimed exceptionalism.

When NATO was attacking Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, international law was perceived only as an annoying impediment.

In futile attempts to justify their aggression against sovereign states, the collective West had to come up with exotic concepts, such as ‘humanitarian intervention’, ‘war on terror‘ and ‘preventive strikes’.  The outcome is always the same: lots of casualties, and no one held accountable.

As the socialist Biden Regime continues supporting needless bloodshed in a conflict Ukraine has already lost, this report concludes, today it sees even the leftist Washington Post grimly noting about Ukraine forces “They’re living in hell” and observing: “Ukrainian soldiers have learned nowhere is fully safe”—sees the Washington Post citing Ukrainian intelligence commander Volodymyr Pohorilyy revealing: “Russian artillery is shooting from morning until evening … If our side shoots one their way, we get 10 or 15 back”—a revelation that caused the Washington Post to assess: “Having reached its 100th day, the war between Russia and Ukraine is now at a demoralizing stage for many Ukrainian soldiers…Ukraine has lost, in about 2½ months, as many forces as the United States lost in Iraq and Afghanistan over 20 years”—an assessment now joined by Belarusian intelligence operatives reporting: “Already in Ukraine, a serious confrontation and conflict is starting between President Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian military…The Ukrainian military understands what’s involved in fighting Russia and knows they won’t be able to continue doing so much longer”—and as Western weapons flooded into Ukraine continue to be sold on the black market, in the latest urgent war bulletins issued by the Ministry of Defense (MoD), it sees them most notable of them being:

Over the past 24 hours, Russian drones, army and tactical aircraft struck 54 clusters of Ukrainian troops and military equipment…A total of more than 400 nationalists were killed…These strikes also destroyed 20 tanks and armored vehicles and four BM-21 Grad MLR systems”.

Over the past 24 hours, Russia high-precision air-launched missiles struck a Ukrainian artillery training center with foreign instructors in the area of the Stetsovka settlement of the Sumy Region used to train Ukrainians on using and operating 155-mm M777 Howitzers supplied by the United States…A foreign mercenary base was also destroyed by a missile strike in the Dachnoye district of the Odessa region…In addition, 27 clusters of troops and military equipment of the armed forces of Ukraine were hit, and two command posts of the armed forces of Ukraine, six depots of missile and artillery weapons, ammunition and fuel in the areas of the settlements of Vesyoloye and Bakhmut of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Spornoye, Podlesnoye and Loskutovka of the Lugansk People’s Republic were destroyed”.

In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, the following Ukraine targets have been destroyed by Russian military forces: 187 aircraft and 129 helicopters, 1,104 unmanned aerial vehicles, 328 air defense systems, 3,406 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 466 multiple launch rocket systems, 1,769 field artillery guns and mortars, as well as 3,405 special military vehicles”.

Nuclear War Endgame Triggers “Economic Superstorm” Warning

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

https://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index3936.htm

A grimly foreboding new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting President Putin vowing in his video address on International Day for Protection of Children that Russia will prevail over the Western colonial powers response to the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine, with him telling parents, teachers, and pupils: “You are living and growing up in a very dynamic time when the world is changing, and it’s changing rapidly…I am confident that in this complicated world, Russia will only bolster its strength, independence and sovereignty”, says quick to follow was top Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov revealing that all contact between the governments of Russia and the United States have ceased, with him stating: “Now all contacts are virtually absent”.

As to why virtually all contact has ceased between the world’s two largest nuclear weapons powers, this report notes, is due to United States National Security Director General Paul Nakasone openly admitting US Cyber Command specialists were deployed to Ukraine to conduct offensive operations against Russia, and him revealing that US eavesdroppers conduct information warfare against Russia, with the help of leftist corporate media companies such as CNN—an open admission of hostilities joined today by United States Permanent Representative to NATO Julianne Smith declaring Russia to be “the primary target” of this American-led military bloc of Western colonial powers—all of which follows State Duma member Alexei Zhuravlev gravely warning: “I will tell you absolutely competently that to destroy the entire the East Coast of the United States, two Sarmat missiles are needed…And the same goes for the West Coast…Four missiles, and there will be nothing left”.

To the type of war currently being waged against Russia by the Western colonial powers, this report continues, yesterday it caused Executive Director Fatih Birol of the International Energy Agency to warn “the world faces a much bigger energy crisis than the one of the 1970s”, and states: “Back then it was just about oil…Now we have an oil crisis, a gas crisis and an electricity crisis simultaneously”—then it saw the International Energy Agency further warning that fuel rationing may soon be coming to Europe—warnings quickly joined by the news: “Russia is on track to make more money off oil and gas exports this year than it did in 2021, and it’s got the EU to thank”—news joined by Russian global petrochemical giant Sibur announcing it has redirected almost all of its sales from Europe to Turkey, Asia, and has found alternatives for imported chemicals banned by Western colonial sanctions—and in the latest example of how insane these Western colonial sanctions really are, they forgot that in banning microchips Russian noble gases are critically needed to produce them, which is why today the Kremlin restricted their export.

Among the very few acknowledging the insanity of what the Western colonial powers are doing, this report details, is United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who warns that confiscating Russian funds could destroy America’s reputation with investors and encourage other countries to put their central bank reserves in other currencies and keep it out of American hands—but most critical to note is being acknowledged by American global banking giant JPMorgan Chase, whose CEO Jamie Dimon says he is preparing the biggest United States bank for an economic hurricane on the horizon and advised investors to do the same, and warned the American people: “You know, I said there’s storm clouds but I’m going to change it…It’s a hurricane…While conditions seem fine at the moment, nobody knows if the hurricane is a minor one or Superstorm Sandy…JPMorgan is bracing ourselves…You’d better brace yourself”.

Quickly following this “economic superstorm” warning, this report notes, it saw global banking giant Switzerland banning the European Union from sending any of its weapons to Ukraine—a ban immediately joined by the German military declaring that it doesn’t possess the weapons system Chancellor Olaf Scholz has promised to Ukraine—when Russian military forces took control of most of the key eastern Ukrainian city of Sieverodonetsk yesterday, however, the socialist Biden Regime responded with a $700-million military aid package of weapons to Ukraine, that the Kremlin branded a “direct confrontation”—then it saw the Ministry of Defense (MoD) revealing: “We note that since the beginning of May, the flow of foreign mercenaries to Ukraine to participate in hostilities against the Russian armed forces has virtually dried up…The number of foreign fighters in Ukraine has decreased from 6,600 to 3,500…Hundreds of foreign mercenaries in Ukraine were destroyed by Russian long-range precision weapons shortly after their arrival at the places where they were undergoing additional training and where the tactical units were coordinated…Most of the mercenaries were killed due to the low level of training and the lack of real combat experience”—in response to the new weapons America is flooding into Ukraine it saw top Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov revealing that Russian military forces are taking measures to minimize their risk, and saw him factually stating: “The United States is deliberately and painstakingly pouring gasoline on the fire…The United States is clearly pursuing a policy to fight Russia until the last Ukrainian”.

In attempting to ascertain what the exact goal of the socialist Biden Regime really is, this report continues, it bears noticing that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy shut down a NewsMax interviewer who prompted him to say that there would be no war in Ukraine if President Donald Trump was still in power—is important to notice because President Trump just threatened to sue the Pulitzer Board if they didn’t rescind the prize they awarded to the leftist New York Times and Washington Post for the lies they spread about the Russiagate hoax, whose statement says: “Surely there must come a point where it is simply embarrassing to your organization to stand by a prestigious Pulitzer Prize awarded to two alleged news organizations that have been conclusively and definitively complicit in promulgating lies about me…The Pulitzer Prizes should not be known as a fake organization awarding its one sterling award for patently false stories”—but to protect the lying American leftist media establishment, it saw CEO Susan Wojcicki of global video giant YouTube assuring the Western colonial powers at Davos that they will continue controlling the socialist narrative.

As to the type of “narrative” needed to be controlled, this report concludes, was further exampled this past week when judges in the iron-grip socialist Democrat Party controlled State of California insanely “ruled that bees are a type of fish”—socialist insanity making it no wonder the leftist New York Times, in their just published article “The GOP Midterm Wave Is Set—And Democrats Can’t Do Anything About It”, warns about Democrats: “They are seizing anything they can to convince themselves that doom is avoidable…But that is simply wish-casting”—in this warning of socialist Democrat Party doom in the midterm elections, however, most critically it’s revealed: “One probably needs to go back to the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 to find an event that might have significantly helped the party in power on the eve of a midterm vote”—for one assessing if these socialist Democrats are insane enough to mastermind a nuclear war endgame so they can maintain power, it bears noticing Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden saying to dictatorial New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who stripped away her citizens’ rights to own guns, this week: “We need your guidance”—sees this need for “guidance” on how to strip weapons from ordinary citizens coming at the same time it was shockingly revealed the majority of the 51 intelligence experts that lied about the Hunter Biden laptop have connections to the Bush Regime—and is most critical to notice because just last week, terrifying secret Bush Regime documents were uncovered revealing that in the event of a nuclear war, Socialist Leader Biden would have the power to strip the American people of their guns and throw tens-of-millions of them into concentration camps, and about these secret emergency powers documents sees it being noted: “The White House’s response to a nuclear strike was among the most thoroughly elaborated scenarios”.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]https://www.youtube.com/embed/FKvM4k8Dm9A

When America socialists can’t even tell what a woman is and start claiming that bees are fish, one would think people would start to notice something is really wrong!

Foreclosure Hell Has Begun Again!

Foreclosures have already begun to surge amid economy-destroying Fed rate hikes

Image: Foreclosures have already begun to surge amid economy-destroying Fed rate hikes

(Natural News) The Biden regime’s intent to destroy the powerhouse economy that President Donald Trump built in just four short years actually began when the leftist deep state pushed him to agree to recommend lockdowns and business closures during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the year the same people were plotting to steal his reelection.

And now that the process is in full swing, the regime is set to finish the job.

During Biden’s first year in office, the Democrat-majority Congress passed one major spending bill after another, flooding the country with newly printed trillions at a time when there was a worsening supply chain crisis and ongoing shutdowns. The result was out-of-control inflation as more money in the system competed for fewer goods and services, a perfect recipe for spiking inflation.

Ostensibly to ‘control’ inflation, the Federal Reserve has begun hiking interest rates which is expected to slow down spending to allow the supply chain to catch up with the money supply. But at the same time, the rate hikes come as used cars have risen in price by 35 percent while prices for existing homes have also shot skyward as they did in the years before the 2007 Great Recession.

The resulting crash left millions of Americans with overpriced homes that lost a third of their value, leading to massive foreclosures and an economy literally on the brink of collapse — and it’s all happening again.

Already a tsunami of foreclosures has begun sweeping over the country, according to the Strange Sounds blog, which reports:

In March 2022, foreclosures surged 181% to [the] highest levels since March 2020, with Chicago, New York, LA and Houston leading the pack.

Some eight months after a nationwide moratorium on foreclosures expired, foreclosure filings soared to the highest level since the pandemic began.

Last month, 33,333 properties across the U.S. faced foreclosure, a 181 percent jump from March 2021 and 29 percent pop from February, according to a report by foreclosure tracker Attom. The first quarter saw 78,271 properties with a foreclosure filing, a 39 percent increase from the previous quarter and 132 percent from last year.

In March 2020, barely a month into the COVID pandemic shutdown, nearly 47,000 homes were held in foreclosure filings according to Rick Sharga, the executive vice president of market intelligence for the firm ATTOM.

And in fact, March was the 11th consecutive month where foreclosure activity posted a rise year-over-year.

“Not only did foreclosure activity hit a peak, the time it took properties to foreclose ticked down 3 percent from the previous quarter. Properties foreclosed on in the first quarter were in the process for an average of 917 days, down from 941 in the previous period and 930 in the first quarter of 2021,” Strange Sounds added.

Not surprisingly, California was the state where the highest number of foreclosure starts for the first three months of this year — 5,378 — thanks to the insanely overpriced housing market there. But Florida and Texas were second and third, respectively, with 4,707 and 4,649.

Among the country’s major metropolitan areas, Chicago saw the largest increase in new foreclosure filings during the first quarter of this year with 3,101. New York City followed with 2.580 starts after a statewide foreclosure moratorium expired in January.

Despite the rise in activity, Sharga believes that economic growth in the country will continue. However, he added, the U.S. isn’t likely to see pre-pandemic levels “until the end of the year at the earliest, unless the economy takes a significant turn for the worse.”

And that’s really the plan: The Biden regime and the leftist deep state running it will be fine, economically, as their investments and assets will be protected from their own economy-destroying policies. The rest of the country, however, is in for a massive contraction like that seen just a short 15 years ago.

Ed Williams in DeKalb County, Getting it Done Right! Stop Corruption Within DeKalb!

Judge recuses himself from DeKalb commission pay raise lawsuit

DEKALB COUNTY

By Tyler Estep, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Updated July 2, 2020

A new judge will be assigned to handle the lawsuit challenging DeKalb County commissioners’ controversial 2018 vote to give themselves a pay raise.

DeKalb Superior Court Judge Gregory A. Adams voluntarily recused himself from the case late last week, more than three months after the Georgia Supreme Court issued a ruling sending it back to the trial court.

Adams’ recusal follows a motion brought by local activist Ed Williams, who filed the original lawsuit against several DeKalb commissioners and county CEO Michael Thurmond. Williams had requested Adams remove himself due to his previous rulings in the case and what Williams called the judge’s “long congenial relationship with some of the  commissioners.”

Williams also raised questions about Adams’ appointment as chair of DeKalb’s charter review commission, a body tasked with evaluating the organization of the county’s government and how powers are delegated. Williams argued that the matters under examination by the review commission could include the very issue he raised in his lawsuit.

In his June 26 recusal latter, Adams did not specify a reason for removing himself from the case.

As of Wednesday, a new judge had not been assigned.

Williams filed his lawsuit without the aid of an attorney in August 2018, several months after DeKalb commissioners voted to give themselves a nearly 60% raise. The pay hike was quickly introduced during a meeting without being listed on the agenda and without going through the commission’s normal committee review process.

Williams’ suit argues that the commission’s vote violated open meeting laws and the salary ordinance was unconstitutional.

Adams dismissed the suit originally but Williams appealed all the way to the state’s Supreme Court, where law students at the University of Georgia’s appellate litigation clinic helped argue the case late last year.

The Supreme Court issued its opinion in March.

While the high court did not rule on the merit of any allegations themselves, it found that Williams should have been permitted to pursue civil penalties against individual commissioners for allegedly violating the state’s Open Meetings Act. It also found that Williams’ request for an injunction to stop CEO Thurmond from paying the increased salaries was dismissed prematurely.

From the Health Ranger on Trudeau’s Latest Attack…

Trudeau’s latest attack on peaceful Freedom Convoy is straight from Communist China’s playbook

Image: Trudeau’s latest attack on peaceful Freedom Convoy is straight from Communist China’s playbook

(Natural News) This is the most important Daily News note that I have ever written. Read on and you will understand why I wrote this to go out with the LifeSite Daily News email to subscribers last night.

(Article by Steve Jalsevac republished from LifeSiteNews.com)

Monday was a wild, roller coaster day for Canadians and the Convoy 2022 movement that has attracted immense international attention and support. One nation after another has seen the rise of a trucker movement imitating the incredibly successful Canadian one. Each one verifies similar citizen disgust and desperation over covid mandates in their respective nations.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced end to vaccine passports mandate

The day started out with an astonishing press conference from COVID tyrant and Ontario premier Doug Ford. Ontario is Canada’s most populated and wealthy province. Ford announced a completely unexpected, supposed end to the province’s vaccine passports mandate. I use “supposed” because he is also going to allow businesses to continue to demand proof of vaccination if they so wish. That is a contradictory policy of giving with one hand while taking away with the other.

He also vaguely indicated that masks will stay in place until “a later date” and threatened Truckers with “serious consequences” for “lawless activity,” ignoring his own constantly failed, massively lawless COVID policies that have been catastrophic and resulted in thousands of otherwise preventable deaths and severe injuries that are ongoing.

Trudeau/federal government invocation of Emergency Measures Act

Then there was the carefully staged Justin Trudeau and various aids’ press conference, where for the first time in Canadian history the extreme Emergency Measures Act (EMA) was invoked. It gives this chronically lying prime minister frightening dictatorial powers to crush terrorists or similar threats to the nation.

Trudeau has never been known to be consistent on his beliefs and policies which back in 2020 would have strongly supported today’s truckers’ actions – even if they lasted a year. See the following excerpt from the New York Times editorial board noted in an illuminating Hot Air column today:

“Entertaining the use of force to disperse or contain legal protests is wrong. As Mr. Trudeau said in November 2020, in expressing his support of a yearlong protest by farmers in India that blocked major highways to New Delhi, “Canada will always be there to defend the right of peaceful protest.”’

The Hot Air author logically concludes, “Trudeau’s sudden grasp of emergency powers to shut down peaceful protest is not just a clear case of hypocrisy, but also a warning sign for authoritarianism.”

LifeSite’s Kennedy Hall writes that what Trudeau has actually done was to give himself new powers to “squash a freedom movement that is engaging in civil disobedience peacefully.” And that civil disobedience has been a sacred, traditional right in Canada.

Trudeau political clone Doug Ford also expressed complete support for the PM’s extreme reaction to the peaceful, patriotic protesters. They have been gaining support from millions of Canadians desperately seeking relief from the COVID mandates that have devastated Canada’s economy and society.

Ford seems to have a political death wish which the provincial Liberals will take full advantage of in the upcoming provincial election.

Tucker Carlson was quick to respond last night to Trudeau as having declared Canada to be a dictatorship, which, as he explains, is not an unreasonable charge.

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has thankfully announced last night that Trudeau has gone too far. They added, “the federal government has not met the threshold necessary to invoke the Emergencies Act. This law creates a high and clear standard for good reason: the Act allows the government to bypass ordinary democratic processes. This standard has not been met.”

They are correct. There is no justifiable, honest reason for its invocation. This is major fraud involving massive exaggerations and lies about the truckers and supporters.

At an earlier truckers’ press conference, Canadian Senator Brian Peckford, the last remaining drafter of Canada’s Charter of Rights, and a great Canadian expressed dismay over the expected invocation of the EMA. Both Peckford and a trucker organizer stated that Convoy 2022 “will hold the line” and the protests will continue to try to free Canadians from the destructive mandates.

Canada’s federal police, the Mounties, have engaged in overnight, Mafia-like violent sabotage of three huge excavators on private property in a field near the Coutts, Alberta truckers’ blockade which they only “suspected” would be used in the blockade. They also claim to have arrested persons connected to the blockade who allegedly had a large number of guns and planned violence against the Mounties when they moved to dismantle the blockade.

At the truckers’ press conference a journalist asked a question about the arrests and guns. There was an immediate outcry from the truckers shouting “lies, lies, lies.” Almost everyone related to the truckers has long been expecting a false flag setup of this type by the Mounties in order to turn the public against them and to justify extreme actions.

The Conservative parliamentary motion to end the COVID restrictions was unfortunately defeated Monday 185 to 151, with only all the Conservatives supporting the motion.

Dr. Robert Malone warns Canadians to defend their nation from Globalists

This is the big one: Dr. Robert Malone posted an article on his blog supporting the Canadian truckers and warning that Canadians must defend their nation if they “wish to keep it, or the Globalists will take it from you.” The article is a MUST-READ for all Canadians and citizens of all other nations.

Malone explains what the catastrophic COVID policies are really all about – imposing the Great Reset on every nation in the world. That also explains the real purpose of Monday’s Canadian federal government press conference. In reality, it had NOTHING to do with “terrorists” or other serious threats to the security of Canada. Justin Trudeau is a protégé of Great Reset creator Klaus Schwab and has a number of times publicly expressed his support for the evil Great Reset scheme.

The truckers are very patriotic Canadians giving their whole heart and soul to defend Canada from those who are destroying it. Every truck and all those cheering them on in Ottawa and on every bridge and stop along the way to Ottawa from the different parts of Canada displayed a sea of Canadian flags.

During rallies, there has been frequent singing of the national anthem. In Ottawa, contrary to Liberal and media lies, truckers cleaned and protected the monuments in front of Parliament. They are no “terrorists” nor any threat to the nation among them compared to the threat that the federal and provincial governments have been with their two years of COVID tyranny and destruction.

Check out my February 11 article that now includes five moving, short videos revealing the true heart and soul of Convoy 2022 and the millions of Canadians supporting them. Forward that article and videos to others so they can use them to convince skeptics and critics of the truckers that they are actually very different from what they have been told every day by the bought and controlled media.

Convoy 2022 has become an unexpected, international, and very serious threat to Great Reset global plans as well as a convenient opportunity to exploit for the purpose of rapidly advancing Great Reset policies in Canada sooner than planned.

Deputy PM Freeland’s shocking financial control measures

The especially big give-away yesterday was the lengthy explanation by Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland of radical new financial policies announcing the government will seize truckers’ assets at will.

Watch Freeland to the left of Trudeau at the beginning of the video of the press conference yesterday when all of this was announced. She was obviously extremely anxious about what she was about to say and the government’s huge risk in trying to get away with its extreme measures.

I have never seen a Deputy PM so obviously near what seems to be a panic attack before speaking. She had every reason to be that anxious as Justin Trudeau also seemed to be very uncomfortable as he announced his unsupportable invoking of the Emergency Measures Act against a huge, popular movement of peaceful Canadian patriots.

She stated, “We are broadening the scope of Canada’s anti-money laundering and terrorist financing rules so that they cover Crowd Funding Platforms and the payment service providers they use.” That is an unprecedented, revolutionary and frightening change to Canada’s financial system and protections for citizens.

There was much more, including authorizing banks to unilaterally suspend any account for any reason on the basis of suspicion alone, no court order required, with legal immunity.

She also announced the government is even planning to seize crypto-currency funds which the truckers have begun using to protect their money from tyrannical government measures. Freeland’s announcements were the most frightening of all the government actions to date.

What Freeland announced strongly appeared to be the next stage of later, full government control of everyone’s financial assets, not just the truckers, and a suspension of all financial privacy rights, with arbitrary and often changing bank and government conditions required of citizens to earn, move and use money.

Chrystia Freeland

That total control of personal finances is right out of the Great Reset book and all too similar to Communist China’s social credit system. This is even worse than if Trudeau sent in the army to remove the protesters. What Freeland and Trudeau have begun, unless there is an immediate, great uproar among all Canadians to stop this planned financial slavery, is a grave threat to every Canadian.

Trudeau, Freeland, and the others who spoke during the press conference indicated that these drastic new measures, other than the crowdfunding controls, were temporary and would last only for an unspecified period of time. Trudeau also stated that they are not intended to be applied to all Canadians.

More warnings about the duration and dangers of emergency measures

I need to remind everyone that Trudeau, Ford, and many others promised back in 2020 that they only needed “two weeks to flatten the curve.” How did that turn out? There has been an ongoing string of broken promises and policy reverses for the past two years on almost everything related to Covid. There is good reason to not believe any of the assurances given yesterday afternoon.

Watch the Trucker press conference this morning during which Ontario MPP Randy Hillier and the renowned Dr. Paul Alexander provide sobering responses to yesterday’s developments. Both are very blunt about what Canadians are now facing. There will surely be many more such warnings that Canada has now gone down a very dangerous, unnecessary path.

The entire Ottawa press conference was pure political theatre. It was carefully scripted to further unjustly demonize the Convoy 2022 and provoke Canadians to turn against each other. That is, nothing in it was honest and all Canadians and others watching were considered to be subjects for psychological conditioning to believe that the truckers are violent terrorists threatening national security and economic stability. That is preposterous and unconscionable!

Canadians were assured that the suspension of civil rights and severe actions were targeted only against anyone even suspected of supporting this patriotic movement. That would likely include even millions of Canadians. But it won’t stop there, I can guarantee you.

All Canadians, whether they support or oppose the truckers should be alarmed about this development. It portends the end of democracy in Canada. That would threaten every one of whatever views who are not among the globalist elites.

See the full, one-hour-long press conference here. It is important to endure watching and viewing it from the perspective that has been presented in this article.

I urge all LifeSite readers, no matter what country you are in, to pray for the continued success of Canada’s Convoy 2022 because what happens in Canada over the next few months will have an impact on the rest of the world.

RESIST and NEVER COMPLY with unjust laws and policies.

Covid Mass Murderer Biden Slammed With “Let’s Go Brandon!” Chants Sweeping America

Covid Mass Murderer Biden Slammed With “Let’s Go Brandon!” Chants Sweeping America

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A thought-provoking new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today sees Security Council Members in this transcript expressing grave concern over the United States Federal Reserve just releasing a beyond shocking report revealing that the top one percent of richest Americans now hold more wealth than the entire American middle class—a shocking revelation coming seven years after American economic experts declared in 2014 that the United States was an oligarchy, not a democracy—and with this new revelation means the United States has officially become a banana republic.  

With a “banana republic” being a nation operated as a private commercial enterprise for the exclusive profit of its elite ruling class, this report notes, they are tyrannically ruled over by a “puppet leader” who’s dependent upon an outside power and subject to its orders—an exact description of Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden, which is why shortly after he seized power, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) sent out an alert to all of its members entitled “Joe Biden: The Puppet President”, wherein it asked and warned: “Who is making these important decisions that affect the future of our country?…The answer: Biden’s radical handlers in the White House and their far-Left Socialist friends like Bernie Sanders and AOC”.

Among the “far-left socialists” pulling the strings to control “puppet leader” Biden, this report details, is Democrat Party House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, about whom its just been stunningly revealed amassed a staggering fortune of up to $315-million during the Covid pandemic—and is fortune of blood money Pelosi began amassing during last year’s presidential election after Biden, on 17 September 2020, declared to the American people about President Donald Trump: “If the president had done his job from the beginning, all the people who have died from coronavirus would still be alive”.

During the entirety of 2020 when President Trump was in power, this report continues, the American people didn’t have Covid vaccines available, and it saw 325,000 of them dying from this disease—but with Covid vaccines available since he seized power in January-2021, during the past nine months Biden has seen over 375,000 Americans dying of Covid on his watch—according to his own socialist logic thus makes Biden a Covid mass murderer—though to notice for both President Trump and Biden, during the entirety of 2020, and ten months into 2021the CDC has yet to document a single flu death occurring in America

This transcript sees Security Council Members agreeing that the total elimination of flu deaths in America over these past nearly two years remains the greatest kept secret in human history—an historic secret coming at the same time a new global study estimates that over 50-million people suffered from major depressive disorders in 2020 due to Covid-19 pandemic—comes at the same time the entire leftist American mainstream propaganda media suppressed the shocking news that all flights in Florida were cancelled after air traffic controllers walked off the job because they refuse to take experimental Covid vaccines—and comes at the same time Dr. Pierre Kory of Frontline Doctors stunningly revealed: “Between 100-200 United States Congress Members (plus many of their staffers and family members) with COVID were treated by a colleague over the past 15 months with ivermectin & the I-MASK+ protocol…None have gone to hospital”.

With Israeli researchers announcing last week that Covid recovery gave Israelis longer-lasting Delta varient defense than vaccines, this report continues, it came too late for Singapore, that vaccinated over 85% of its population, and now sees Covid cases skyrocketing because no one in their country has natural immunity to stop the spread of this disease—is an 85% vaccination rate the United States is nowhere close to, but is understandable because, as of 1 October, the US government reports that 778,685 Americans have been seriously injured by experimental Covid vaccines and 16,310 of them have died—and whose the total number of deaths associated with experimental Covid vaccines is greater than the number of deaths associated with all other vaccines combined since the year 1990.

With American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer admitting this past week that it uses the body parts of murdered aborted helpless babies in its experimental Covid vaccines, this report concludes, countless tens-of-millions of Americans know this shocking revelation allows them religious exemptions protecting them being forced to take them—are religious exemptions from being forced to take experimental Covid vaccines now supported by the unanimous ruling handed down Friday by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, that sided with unvaccinated college students against their socialist university overlords, and is a final ruling binding on the States of Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee only the US Supreme Court can overturn—sees this ruling coming at the same time yet another American nurse posted a heartbreaking video of her being fired for refusing to take an experimental Covid vaccine—and today sees all of these fired nurses being supported by what’s being called by Fox News a “national social media sensation” of the “Let’s Go Brandon!” chants, social media postings, signs and billboards sweeping America—that began when a leftist lunatic NBC reporter tried to cover up on live television the “Fuck Joe Biden” chants heard in stadiums across America by saying they were chanting “Let’s Go Brandon.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Ruth Bader Ginsburg
The Trumpster is right: Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s ‘mind is shot’ because she was brain damaged by chemotherapy in 2009… (and hasn’t been able to think straight since)
http://www.naturalnews.com/054650_Ruth_Bader_Ginsburg_chemo_brain_Donald_Trump.html

(NaturalNews) Three days ago, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg went on a discombobulated verbal rampage against Donald Trump, calling him a “faker” and claiming that if he were elected president, “then everything is up for grabs.”

She then went on to declare that everybody should “move to New Zealand” where, apparently, they can all wear their liberal tin foil hats together while America finally builds a wall to keep them all out.

But what almost nobody seems to remember about all this is that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was brain damaged by chemotherapy in 2009. As this NY Daily News story explains, she underwent chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer that year.

Chemotherapy is a systemic poison that damages the brains, kidneys and hearts of those who undergo the procedure. As oncologists well know, chemotherapy causes “chemo brain” — a form of chemically induced brain damage that severely impairs cognitive ability by damaging brain cells. It’s far worse than the brain damage you’d suffer from sniffing glue or consuming meth, by the way.

Chemo brain is a medically recognized side effect of chemotherapy, and even the Mayo Clinic describes chemo brain side effects as including:

  • Confusion
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty finding the right word
  • Feeling of mental fogginess
  • Short-term memory problems
  • Taking longer than usual to complete routine tasks
  • Trouble with verbal memory, such as remembering a conversation

Does this sound exactly like Ruth Bader Ginsburg? You bet it does!

America’s highest court populated by a brain-damaged liberal
All this explains why Ginsberg’s Supreme Court decisions have been so cognitively impaired for the last seven years. It’s also why she recently committed a huge error by uttering all those insanely stupid words against Donald Trump, earning her a retort from Trump who correctly says her “mind is shot.”

The Trumpster is now calling for Ginsberg to resign in shame, and even the New York Times now agrees that Trump is right: Ginsberg has totally lost her mind. Why hasn’t she resigned yet? Because she’s too cognitively impaired to realize she needs to resign.

It’s frightening to think that the very future of America hinges in part on the decisions of a brain-damaged U.S. Supreme Court Justice who has lost the ability to think or speak with clarity. Yet in another way, it’s also not so surprising: She’s the perfect poster girl for the total insanity that now exists in Washington D.C. … a dangerous departure from sanity that’s now endemic across the entire federal government. In fact, if you think about it, why shouldn’t an insanely stupid, incompetent and corrupt federal government be incessantly granted unconstitutional powers by a brain-damaged Supreme Court justice who can’t control her own mouth?

This is all the more reason to elect Donald Trump, by the way. If we are to have any real hope of saving America, we have to replace all the insane, incompetent and brain damaged government officials with intelligent, capable, patriotic Americans who can get things done while protecting individual liberty.

FreeRepublic: Gun Purchases Continue to Soar

Maybe Americans aren’t taking to Hillary Clinton’s sour attitude toward guns. Maybe they’re arming themselves out of concern about terrorists and criminals of a more conventional stripe. And maybe they’re showing what they think of members of Congress who use terrorists’ crimes as the excuse to push for more gun control.

One way or the other, though, Americans are continuing to acquire guns at an unprecedented level. The FBI reported this week that in June 2016, firearm-related background checks set a new record for any month of June, up 39% from the number of checks conducted in June 2015.

For the first six months of 2016, checks are up 32 percent over the same period in 2015. If the present rate of checks holds through December, there will be over 32 million checks conducted this year, more than double the number conducted during President Obama’s first year in office. There have been 26.5 million checks during the last 12 months, more than in any 12-month period previously.

NICS checks don’t precisely indicate the number of firearms acquired in a given time frame. But the trend in checks makes clear that Americans are acquiring firearms at a record pace. The annual number of checks has risen from 12.7 million during the last year of President George W. Bush’s administration to an average of 23 million during Obama’s second term.

NICS checks don’t stop criminals from stealing guns or acquiring guns on the black market, and criminals defeat checks by having other people, who can pass checks, buy guns for them. But they continue to deliver data undermining gun control supporters’ perennial boast that gun ownership is declining. If anything, the data suggest that the opposite is true.

Robert De Niro was clearly threatened by the vaccine establishment to censor the VAXXED documentary from Tribeca

BREAKING: Robert De Niro was clearly threatened by the vaccine establishment to censor the VAXXED documentary from Tribeca… new details emerge

Robert De Niro

(NaturalNews) There has never been an assault against a documentary film in the history of America like the one we’ve just witnessed over the last 48 hours. The entire mainstream media waged a coordinated, simultaneous attack against the Tribeca Film Festival to censor a film none of them had even seen.

That film, of course, is called VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, and it documents the admission of the CDC’s Dr. William Thompson, who admitted taking part in a massive scientific fraud to conceal the truth about vaccines causing autism.

This is the first time in the history of film and media that the totality of the media establishment has condemned a film that none of them have ever viewed, desperately trying to make sure no American ever witnesses the hour and a half of film footage that is now “forbidden” to be viewed in a nation founded on free speech.

A statement has been posted on the VAXXED documentary website:

It is our understanding that persons from an organization affiliated with the festival have made unspecified allegations against the film – claims that we were given no opportunity to challenge or redress. We were denied due process.

We have just witnessed yet another example of the power of corporate interests censoring free speech, art, and truth.

Tribeca’s action will not succeed in denying the world access to the truth behind the film Vaxxed.

Robert De Niro was on a phone call before all this happened
Natural News can now report that Robert De Niro and his wife spoke directly with U.S. Congressman Bill Posey for approximately one hour on Friday, during which De Niro was given numerous assurances by Congressman Posey that the CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, really did confess to taking part in massive scientific fraud to conceal the links between vaccines and autism. It was based in part on this assurance that De Niro originally backed the film’s screening at Tribeca.

But hours later, somebody got to De Niro. Somebody powerful and connected whom we believe threatened Robert De Niro into silence. This mysterious conversation has not been revealed. De Niro has not released the names of those from the “scientific community” who threatened him, nor have the VAXXED filmmakers been offered any ability to respond to whatever accusations may have been falsely leveled against the film.

Total secrecy: Who got to De Niro, and what threats were made against him?
The silencing of VAXXED, in other words, was carried out with the same secrecy under which the entire vaccine industry operates. There is zero transparency, no due process, no discussion and no debate. Robert De Niro may have even been death threated by the vaccine establishment — an industry already steeped in the maiming and murdering of children worldwide. To silence this powerful film, they would stop at nothing… not even threatening Robert De Niro with destroying his professional career or possibly his life or family.

This is the vaccine mafia at work: Threatening people into silence, censoring a powerful documentary, leveling secret accusations in secret meetings, all while ridiculously claiming they alone have a monopoly on scientific truth which can never be challenged, debated or even questioned by anyone.

The mainstream media just committed credibility suicide… everybody knows they’re covering up the truth about vaccines
In the coverage of all this, we just witnessed the mainstream media committing CREDIBILITY SUICIDE. The entire media just followed in the footsteps of North Korea or Communist China, ordering a film festival to censor a documentary that’s so powerful, it threatens the cascade of lies propping up the fraudulent vaccine industry and all its hidden truths (that are about to be exposed).

The same Tribeca Film Festival that happily previewed films like “37 USES FOR A DEAD SHEEP” and “TICKED-OFF TRANNIES WITH KNIVES” has decided that the VAXXED documentary is too dangerous for the public to be allowed to view. But this was not a decision reached with rationality and truth: It was arrived at via the process of media totalitarianism — intimidation and threats aimed at Robert De Niro to force him to silence this film and withdraw it from the festival.

And so for daring to support freedom of expression on this monumental issue the vaccine-pimping media has desperately tried to conceal, De Niro finds himself in a firestorm of accusations and condemnation by the very same media that also blackballed every single story about CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson.

What’s so dangerous in this film that no citizen shall be allowed to view it?
Meanwhile, every thinking American has now come to the realization that the vaccine industry is run like a MAFIA and is wholly incapable of withstanding even a single low-budget documentary that, frankly, few people would have ever heard about if not for this outrageous censorship effort. Now, the American people are asking the commonsense question: “What’s so dangerous in this VAXXED film that we aren’t allowed to see it?”

Does the film show people being beheaded by terrorists in bloody machete scenes? Nope, for that you have to watch CNN and other mainstream media outlets.

Does the film feature lunatic quacks spouting total nonsense and gobbledygook? Nope, because if it did, the vaccine industry would want EVERYONE to watch it!

Does the film fabricate total lies and present them as truth? Nope, to see that, you have to watch all the leftist Hollywood revisionist history films like “TRUTH” (which is full of lies, paradoxically).

VAXXED, it turns out, is dangerous because it is credible. It is being attacked and censored precisely because it threatens to crumble the great scientific Berlin Wall of the vaccine industry… an industry built almost entirely on lies, cover-ups, censorship and systematic intimidation.

In fact, all this is on full display right now as you watch this story unfold. The media obediently attacks De Niro while vaccine totalitarians demand absolute censorship of a film they’ve never even seen. They can’t name in particular statement in the film that’s dangerous or false; they are attacking the entire film by essentially demanding that no questions ever be allowed to be asked about vaccine safety. Just the mere existence of the film is, all by itself, a serious threat to the entire vaccine industry.

All this, of course, is nothing short of “scientific intolerance” and cognitive bigotry on parade. For the vaccine industry to even claim that its products are backed by “science” is wholly laughable. Real science, as everyone knows, is unafraid of scrutiny and debate. Real science welcomes debate because real science can defend itself. Any industry claiming to have “science” on its side which is simultaneously terrified of a scientific discussion isn’t based on science at all.

We are now living in a scientific dictatorship run by the very same corporations that are systematically poisoning our children
If you ever needed a reason to see the VAXXED documentary, you now have the best reason of all: This is the film that you’re never supposed to be allowed to witness with your own eyes.

In a film industry filled with wanton violence, on-screen rapings, beheadings, bloody war scenes and scenes of torture, the single most dangerous film you’re not allowed to see is one that presents an idea.

That idea is based on a simple scientific truth about vaccine dangers, and it’s considered so dangerous to the vaccine establishment that it must be banned at all costs, even if it means threatening Robert De Niro with being destroyed or perhaps even physically harmed.

When the vaccine industry resorts to outright censorship and intimidation tactics against film organizers, you know they have something extremely damning to hide. It’s so damning that the mere utterance of a few words in the film apparently threatens to destroy the entire cesspool of lies upon which the vaccine industry was built. Words of truth are so dangerous to the vaccine industry that all such words must never be uttered on film, lest people wake up to the reality that their own children are being systematically poisoned, maimed and killed — knowingly! — by the vaccine industry and its toxic interventions.

Remember: If they can get to Robert De Niro, formerly a champion of free speech and freedom of expression, they will go after anyone and attempt anything that it takes. If they have to call in bomb threats against theaters to have them evacuated, that’s exactly what the vaccine industry will do. If they have to threaten film festival producers with murder — or threaten their families with bodily harm — they’ll do that, too.

JPMorgan Chase Bank Fines Do Nothing to Them

I was working on something today, and saw that I needed to add some references (footnotes) to support what I was saying. It had to do with JPMorgan Chase Bank, and the fines for violations concerning robo-signing, lying, cheating, stealing homes, and the like. All related to foreclosures of course.

When I began adding the references for my allegations, I almost fell off my chair. I could not believe the fines and the violations, and yet, they continue on, to this very day. The only thing that Chase has learned from all the fines for violations, is that they make enough money, that the fines don’t matter. If anything else had come of it, as in, it hurt them financially, they would have quit with all the violations.
As it turns out, attorneys for these banks have gotten worse. It is ruining the legal profession. If the courts would stand up and make those that should be held accountable, accountable, the foreclosures would have ended. So, it has also ruined the court system for their failure to the citizens of the states and country.

And what pray tell did those people learn other than they will never be able to purchase another home? That you cannot trust attorneys, you cannot trust the courts, and by God you had better never trust the lender. In other words, the world around you is corrupt as hell, and no one, except you, the borrower is accountable for anything.

OPINION: The heightened pleading standard established in 2009 is based on faulty propositions. Arthur H. Bryant, The National Law Journal

‘Iqbal’ Brings Seven Years of Bad Luck for Plaintiffs

OPINION: The heightened pleading standard established in 2009 is based on faulty propositions.
Arthur H. Bryant, The National Law Journal
May 23, 2016

The seventh anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2009 decision in Ashcroft v. Iqbal was May 18. It’s a date that should live in infamy.
A 5-4 decision, Iqbal ignored reality — and the fact that truth is stranger than fiction. It flouted the process for amending the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. And it particularly limited access to justice for civil rights, employment discrimination and individual plaintiffs.
Seventy years before Iqbal, in 1938, the Federal Rules were adopted to get rid of “fact” pleading, which the rule-makers thought “led to wasteful disputes about distinctions that … were arbitrary or metaphysical, too often cutting off adjudication on the merits.” Under the new Rule 8, to start a lawsuit, the plaintiff had to file a complaint with “a short and plain statement of the claim showing the pleader is entitled to relief.”
As the court later explained in Conley v. Gibson, the complaint did not have to “set out the facts in detail.” It just had to give the defendant “fair notice of what the plaintiff’s claim is and the grounds upon which it rests.” A motion to dismiss would only be granted if “it appears beyond doubt that the plaintiff can prove no set of facts in support of his claim which would entitle him to relief.” Then, the plaintiff could take discovery, to find out what the defendant and other relevant people knew and when they knew it. After that, the court would determine whether there was sufficient proof to require a trial.
In Iqbal, the court rejected a complaint alleging that high-level U.S. officials had a Pakistani Muslim and thousands of other Arab men illegally arrested and detained after the 9/11 attacks because of “their race, religion, and national origin … and not because of any evidence” of their “involvement in supporting terrorist activity.”
To do so, the court changed the rules. It held that, from now on, to “survive a motion to dismiss, a complaint must contain sufficient factual matter, accepted as true, to state a claim to relief that is plausible on its face.” Dismissal no longer turned on whether the complaint provided “fair notice” to the defendant; it turned on whether the claim was “plausible on its face.” How were judges to determine that? By drawing on their “judicial experience and common sense.”
Motions to dismiss were immediately filed throughout the federal courts. Judges’ and lawyers’ workloads increased enormously. The lower courts and lawyers are still struggling to figure out how the new system is supposed to work — and, if they can, make it fair.
For three reasons, however, it’s become increasingly clear that Iqbal was a mistake.
First, whatever one thinks about the allegations in the case, the Iqbal pleading standard is based on a proposition — allegations probably aren’t true if they’re not plausible on their face — that is false. Reality keeps teaching us that. None of us, including federal judges using their “judicial experience and common sense,” would have believed that any of the following was plausible a few years ago:
• Donald Trump would be the presumptive Republican Party nominee for president of the United States of America.
• A prominent candidate for president would propose banning all Muslims from entering America or call women “fat pigs,” “dogs” and “disgusting animals.”
• Same-sex marriage would be legal nationwide.
• The U.S. government would obtain and be able to search virtually all Ameri­cans’ phone records.
• Olympic champion Bruce Jenner would become a woman, Caitlyn Jenner.
• Federal, state and local governments would battle over what kind of bathroom people such as Caitlyn Jenner could use.
Similar implausible things happen every day.
Second, Iqbal effectively rewrote the Federal Rules without following the legally established rules for amending them. Under the Rules Enabling Act, before rules are changed, detailed procedures must be followed involving the Advisory Committees to the U.S. Judicial Con­ference’s Standing Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure; the Standing Committee itself; notice to and comment from lawyers, judges and the public; the U.S. Judicial Conference; the Supreme Court; and Congress — so the changes are fully considered and fair.
In 2002, the court unanimously rejected a company’s plea for a heightened pleading standard in employment discrimination cases, saying that result “must be obtained by the process of amending the Federal Rules, and not judicial interpretation.” It should have said that in Iqbal, too.
Third, Iqbal is especially harmful to civil rights, employment discrimination and individual plaintiffs. Last year, the most comprehensive study of Iqbal’s effects, “Measuring the Impact of Plausi­bility Pleading,” was published in the Virginia Law Review. It found that Iqbal increased dismissals of most cases by 10 percent, but employment discrimination and civil rights cases much more (16 percent and 19 percent, respectively). Cases filed by individuals were also dismissed far more often (18 percent), but not cases filed by corporations.
In theory, this could mean that only bad cases were dismissed more promptly. But, if that were true, a higher percentage of the cases remaining in court would succeed. They didn’t. These plaintiffs were just disproportionately denied a chance to prove their claims.
The high court should reverse the Iqbal decision. Whether cases proceed should turn on the facts and the law, not on whether judges think the allegations are plausible.

The Scary TRUTH About Fukushima (Fukushima Exposed Full Documentary: Deception/End Times 2015)


If you don’t do anything else productive this week, do me one small favor, go here:

watch this youtube video, and learn the truth. I have been trying to tell people for the last 5 years, and cannot get enough people to listen, or believe the truth.
The US govt., the Japanese govt., are not going to tell you the truth. Every time I see someone letting their kids play in the rain, I want to walk up and slap them for their stupidity, then have to remember that no one has told them the truth. The news media, the govt, they all know the truth. Let’s just go about our daily lives, and ignore the situation.
Cancer has already been running rampant, the statistics show that it will take 15-17 years from March 11, 2011 to hit most people in the US. So much time will have passed since the triple – 100% meltdowns, that most peopel will not put 2 + 2 together to make 4. 2 + 2 by then, will be equal to 5.

Watch:
The Scary TRUTH About Fukushima (Fukushima Exposed Full Documentary: Deception/End Times 2015)

So along with the chemtrails dumbing people down, helping them stay asleep, together with the deadly fluoride in the water, keep IQs that of a snail, and vaccines causing autism, all the more to black and hispanic males, most peopel in the US will contract cancer and never put it all together. Their children born with autism, their reproduction possibilities deteriorated, and never know what hit them.

Wake up you bunch of idiots, and smell the cesium, the strotium, tritium, and all the other radiations taking hold of your bodies. You cannot see radiation, you cannot smell it, you cannot feel it. It bioaccumulates in your bodies, and is a slow and horrible death.

How many people continued eating seafood? Wow! How many continued eating vegetables grown in California? How many people continued living on the California Coast? How many people go surfing in the Pacific? It only took 3-6 days from the March 11, 2011 triple melt down to reach the California coast.

Has anyone bothered to look at some of the pix of dead whales that have washed up on California beaches? How can the govt not tell these people living along the Pacific Ocean that their kids have been conaminated to the point that their grandchildren will not look anything like a human? The extent of our exposure is sickening, and no one cares, they won’t even listen.

No wonder they want to start confiscating our guns now. They know that when people learn the truth, some of the people are going to rebel. I watched a video recently that showed Hillary Clinton had the March 11, 2011 emails to her telling her to stay inside for the next three days. She knew all about what had happened and the extent of contamination. Japan passe secrecy laws to keep the people from talking about it. Media personnel that spoke of it, disappeared.

The births of the next couple of generations will be heartbreaking, horrors fit for horror movies. God Help Us All!

Judge Says FBI’s Hacking Tool Deployed In Child Porn Investigation Is An Illegal Search

Judge Says FBI’s Hacking Tool Deployed In Child Porn Investigation Is An Illegal Search

http://abovethelaw.com/2016/04/judge-says-fbis-hacking-tool-deployed-in-child-porn-investigation-is-an-illegal-search/

The judicial system doesn’t seem to have a problem with the FBI acting as admins for child porn sites while conducting investigations. After all, judges have seen worse. They’ve OK’ed the FBI’s hiring of a “heroin-addicted prostitute” to seduce an investigation target into selling drugs to undercover agents. Judges have, for the most part, allowed the ATF to bust people for robbing fake drug houses containing zero drugs — even when the actual robbery has never taken place. Judges have also found nothing wrong with law enforcement creating its own “pedophilic organization,” recruiting members and encouraging them to create child pornography.
So, when the FBI ran a child porn site for two weeks last year, its position as a child porn middleman was never considered to be a problem. The “network investigative technique” (NIT) it used to obtain identifying information about anonymous site visitors and their computer hardware, however, has resulted in a few problems for the agency.
While the FBI has been able to fend off one defendant’s attempt to suppress evidence out in Washington, it has just seen its evidence disappear in another case related to its NIT and the “PlayPen” child porn site it seized (and ran) last year.
What troubles the court isn’t the FBI acting as a child porn conduit in exchange for unmasking Tor users. What bothers the court is the reach of its NIT, which extends far outside the jurisdiction of the magistrate judge who granted the FBI’s search warrants. This decision benefits defendant Alex Levin of Massachusetts directly. But it could also pay off for Jay Michaud in Washington.
The warrants were issued in Virginia, which is where the seized server resided during the FBI’s spyware-based investigation. Levin, like Michaud, does not reside in the district where the warrant was issued (Virginia – Eastern District) and where the search was supposed to be undertaken. As Judge William Young explains, the FBI’s failure to restrict itself to the location where the NIT warrants were issued makes them worthless pieces of paper outside of that district. (via Chris Soghoian)

The government argues for a liberal construction of Rule 41(b) that would authorize the type of search that occurred here pursuant to the NIT Warrant. See Gov’t’s Resp. 18-20. Specifically, it argues that subsections (1), (2), and (4) of Rule 41(b) are each sufficient to support the magistrate judge’s issuance of the NIT Warrant. Id. This Court is unpersuaded by the government’s arguments. Because the NIT Warrant purported to authorize a search of property located outside the Eastern District of Virginia, and because none of the exceptions to the general territorial limitation of Rule 41(b)(1) applies, the Court holds that the magistrate judge lacked authority under Rule 41(b) to issue the NIT Warrant.

The government deployed some spectacular theories in its effort to salvage these warrants, but the court is having none of it.

The government advances two distinct lines of argument as to why Rule 41(b)(1) authorizes the NIT Warrant. One is that all of the property that was searched pursuant to the NIT Warrant was actually located within the Eastern District of Virginia, where the magistrate judge sat: since Levin — as a user of Website A — “retrieved the NIT from a server in the Eastern District of Virginia, and the NIT sent [Levin’s] network information back to a server in that district,” the government argues the search it conducted pursuant to the NIT Warrant properly can be understood as occurring within the Eastern District of Virginia. Gov’t’s Resp. 20. This is nothing but a strained, after-the-fact rationalization.

As the government attempts to portray it, the search was wholly contained in Virginia because the NIT was distributed by the seized server in the FBI’s control. But, as the judge notes, the searchitself — via the NIT — did not occur in Virginia. The NIT may have originated there, but without grabbing info and data from Levin’s computer in Massachusetts, the FBI would have nothing to use against the defendant.

That the Website A server is located in the Eastern District of Virginia is, for purposes of Rule 41(b)(1), immaterial, since it is not the server itself from which the relevant information was sought.

And, according to Judge Young, that’s exactly what the FBI has now: nothing.

The Court concludes that the violation at issue here is distinct from the technical Rule 41 violations that have been deemed insufficient to warrant suppression in past cases, and, in any event, Levin was prejudiced by the violation. Moreover, the Court holds that the good-faith exception is inapplicable because the warrant at issue here was void ab initio.

The judge has more to say about the FBI’s last ditch attempt to have the “good faith exception” salvage its invalid searches.

Even were the Court to hold that the good-faith exception could apply to circumstances involving a search pursuant to a warrant issued without jurisdiction, it would decline to rule such exception applicable here. For one, it was not objectively reasonable for law enforcement — particularly “a veteran FBI agent with 19 years of federal law enforcement experience[,]” Gov’t’s Resp. 7-8 — to believe that the NIT Warrant was properly issued considering the plain mandate of Rule 41(b).

The court doesn’t have a problem with NITs or the FBI’s decision to spend two weeks operating a seized child porn server. But it does have a problem with the government getting warrants signed in one jurisdiction and using them everywhere but.
The decision here could call into question other such warrants used extraterritorially, like the DEA’s dozens of wiretap warrants obtained in California but used to eavesdrop on targets located on the other side of the country. And it may help Jay Michaud in his case, seeing as he resides a few thousand miles away from where the search was supposedly performed.

Judicial Corruption at its Finest

Reprimanded judge says presiding over his own divorce case for several months ‘made no difference’


Reprimanded last month for presiding over his own divorce case for four months after it was randomly assigned to his own court, a Texas judge told a local newspaper that doing so did no harm.

“This was my personal divorce,” said 383rd District Judge Mike Herrera to the El Paso Times on Tuesday, explaining that there was “no rush” to transfer the case to another judge because he and his wife were trying at the time to work things out.

Hence, “the fact that it was in this court made no difference. It stayed there,” Herrera said of the divorce case. “I wasn’t actively doing anything. Me and my former spouse were working on everything. She and I were working on everything carefully.”

The Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct noted that Herrera had filed motions in the case while it was in his own court. The commission said that the judge “failed to comply with the law, demonstrated a lack of professional competence in the law, and engaged in willful and persistent conduct that was clearly inconsistent with the proper performance of his judicial duties,” the newspaper reports.

In addition to reprimanding Herrera, the commission ordered him to get six hours of training.

2016 STATE OF THE JUDICIARY ADDRESS THE HONORABLE CHIEF JUSTICE HUGH P. THOMPSON SUPREME COURT OF GEORGIA January 27, 2016, 11 a.m. House Chambers, State Capitol

016 STATE OF THE JUDICIARY ADDRESS
THE HONORABLE CHIEF JUSTICE HUGH P. THOMPSON
SUPREME COURT OF GEORGIA
January 27, 2016, 11 a.m.
House Chambers, State Capitol

Lt. Governor Cagle, Speaker Ralston, President Pro Tem Shafer, Speaker Pro Tem Jones, members of the General Assembly, my fellow judges and my fellow Georgians:
Good morning. Thank you for this annual tradition of inviting the Chief Justice to report on the State of Georgia’s Judiciary. Thanks in large part to your support and the support of our governor, as we move into 2016, I am pleased to tell you that your judicial branch of government is not only steady and secure, it is dynamic; it has momentum; and it is moving forward into the 21st century with a vitality and a commitment to meeting the inevitable changes before us.
Our mission remains the same: To protect individual rights and liberties, to uphold and interpret the rule of law, and to provide a forum for the peaceful resolution of disputes that is fair, impartial, and accessible to all.
Our judges are committed to these principles. Each day, throughout this state, they put on their black robes; they take their seat on the courtroom bench; and they work tirelessly to ensure that all citizens who come before them get justice.


Our Judicial Council is the policy-making body of the state’s judicial branch. It is made up of competent, committed leaders elected by their fellow judges and representing all classes of court. They are assisted by an Administrative Office of the Courts, which is under a new director – Cynthia Clanton – and has a renewed focus as an agency that serves judges and courts throughout Georgia.
A number of our judges have made the trip to be here today. Our judges are here today because the relationship we have with you is important. We share with you the same goal of serving the citizens of this great state. We could not do our work without your help and that of our governor.
On behalf of all of the judges, let me say we are extremely grateful to you members of the General Assembly for your judicial compensation appropriation last year.


Today I want to talk to you about Georgia’s 21st century courts – our vision for the future, the road we must travel to get there, and the accomplishments we have already achieved.
It has been said that, “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”
Since a new state Constitution took effect in 1983, our population has nearly doubled to a little over 10 million, making us the 8th most populous state in the country. We are among the fastest growing states in the nation, and in less than four years, our population is projected to exceed 12 million.
Because it is good for our economy, we welcome that growth. Today, Georgia ranks
among states with the highest number of Fortune 500 companies, 20 of which have their global headquarters here; we have 72 four-year colleges and universities; we have the world’s busiest airport and we have two deep-water ports. Georgia is a gateway to the South, and for a growing number of people and businesses from around the world, it is a gateway to this country.
All of this growth produces litigation – increasingly complex litigation – and just as our state must prepare for this growth by ensuring we have enough roads and modes of transportation, enough doctors and hospitals, and enough power to reach people throughout the state, our courts also must be equipped and modernized for the 21st
century.
While our population has nearly doubled since 1983, the number of Georgia judges has
grown only 16 percent. We must work together to ensure that our judicial system has enough judges, staff and resources in the 21st century to fulfill the mission and constitutional duties our forefathers assigned to us.
A healthy, vibrant judiciary is absolutely critical to the economic development of our state. Thanks to many leaders in the judiciary, as well as to our partnership with the governor and to you in the legislature, we are well on our way to building a court system for the 21st century.


This time next year, with your support, we will have put into place an historic shift in the types of cases handled by the Georgia Supreme Court – the highest court in the state – and by the Court of Appeals – our intermediate appellate court. Thanks to Governor Deal’s Georgia Appellate Jurisdiction Review Commission, this realignment will bring the Supreme Court of Georgia in line with other state Supreme Courts, which handle only the most critical cases that potentially change the law. Serving on the Commission are two of my colleagues – Justice David Nahmias and Justice Keith Blackwell – as well as two judges from the Court of Appeals – Chief
Judge Sara Doyle and Judge Stephen Dillard.
I thank you, Justices and Judges, for your leadership.
Under the Georgia Constitution, Supreme Court justices collectively decide every case that comes before us. Currently the state’s highest court hears divorce and alimony cases; we hear cases involving wills; we hear cases involving titles to land; and we hear disputes over boundary lines.
But the Governor’s Commission, and a number of reports by other commissions and
committees issued since 1983, have recommended that such cases should be heard by our intermediate appeals court, not by our highest court.
Both of our courts are among the busiest in the nation. But unlike the Supreme Court, which sits as a full court with all seven justices participating in, and deciding, every case, the Court of Appeals sits in panels of three. With your approval last year of three new Court of Appeals judges, that court will now have five panels, so it will have the capacity to consider five times as many cases as the Supreme Court.
Modernization of the Supreme Court makes sense. In a 19th century court system, when
most of the wealth was tied up in land, maybe title to land cases were the most important. Maybe they had the greatest implications for the public at large. But as we move into the 21st century, that is no longer true.
In answer to questions such as who owns a strip of land, what does a will mean, and who should prevail in a divorce settlement or an alimony dispute, most judicial systems believe that three judges are enough to provide the parties with a full and fair consideration of their appeal. It no longer makes sense to have seven – or nine – justices collectively review these types of cases.
There is no doubt these cases will be in good hands with the Court of Appeals.
Let me emphasize that all these cases the Commission recommended shifting to the Court of Appeals are critically important to the parties involved.
Let me also emphasize that the purpose of this historic change is not to lessen the burden on the Supreme Court. Rather, the intent is to free up the state’s highest court to devote more time and energy to the most complex and the most difficult cases that have the greatest implications for the law and society at large.
We will therefore retain jurisdiction of constitutional challenges to the laws you enact, questions from the federal courts seeking authoritative rulings on Georgia law, election contests, murder and death penalty cases, and cases in which the Court of Appeals judges are equally divided.
Significantly, we want to be able to accept more of what we call “certiorari” cases
which are appeals of decisions by the Court of Appeals. The number of petitions filed in this category during the first quarter of the new docket year is nearly 14 percent higher this year over last. Yet due to the amount of appeals the law now requires us to take, we have had to reject the majority of the petitions for certiorari that we receive.
These cases are often the most complex – and the most consequential. They involve
issues of great importance to the legal system and the State as a whole. Or they involve an area of law that has become inconsistent and needs clarification.
Businesses and citizens need to know what the law allows them to do and what it does
not allow them to do. It is our job at the highest court to reduce any uncertainty and bring consistency and clarity to the law.
Under the Commission’s recommendations, our 21st century Georgia Supreme Court will
be able to accept more of these important appeals.


As we move into the 21st century, plans are being discussed to build the first state Judicial Building in Georgia’s history that will be dedicated solely to the judiciary. We are grateful for the Governor’s leadership on this. The building that now houses the state’s highest court and the Court of Appeals was built in 1954 when Herman Tallmadge was governor. Back then, it made sense to combine the state judicial branch with part of the executive branch, by locating the Law Department in the same building.
But the world has changed since 1954, and the building we now occupy was not designed with visitors in mind. It was not designed with technology in mind. And it surely was not designed with security in mind. Indeed, it was designed to interconnect with neighboring buildings that housed other branches of government.
A proper Judicial Building is about more than bricks and mortar. Outside, this building will symbolize for generations to come the place where people will go to get final resolution of civil wrongs and injustices; where the government will go to safeguard its prosecution of criminals; and where defendants will go to appeal convictions and sentences to prison for life.
Inside such a building, the courtroom will reinforce the reality that what goes on here is serious and solemn; it is a place of great purpose, in the words of a federal judge. The parties and the lawyers will understand they are all on equal footing, because they are equal under the law.
There is a majesty about the law that gets played out in the courtroom. It is a hallowed place because it is where the truth must be told and where justice is born. The courtroom represents our democracy at its very best.
No, this building is not just about bricks and mortar. Rather it is a place that will house Georgia’s highest court where fairness, impartiality, and justice will reign for future generations.


We are no longer living in a 1950s Georgia. The courts of the 21st century must be
equipped to handle an increasingly diverse population. Living today in metropolitan Atlanta alone are more than 700,000 people who were born outside the United States. According to the Chamber of Commerce, today some 70 countries have a presence in Atlanta, in the form of a consulate or trade office. We must be ready to help resolve the disputes of international businesses that are increasingly locating in our state and capital. Our 21st century courts must be open, transparent and accessible to all. Our citizens’ confidence in their judicial system depends on it. We must be armed with qualified, certified interpreters, promote arbitration as an alternative to costly, courtroom-bound litigation, ensure that all those who cannot afford lawyers have an avenue toward justice, and be constantly updating technology with the aim of improving our courts’ efficiency while saving literally millions of dollars. For all of this, we need your help.


When I first became a judge, we had no email, no cell phones, no Internet. People didn’t Twitter or text, or post things on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram. The most modern equipment we had was a mimeograph machine.
This past year, by Supreme Court order, we created for the first time a governance
structure to bring our use of technology into the 21st century. Chaired by my colleague Justice Harold Melton, and co-chaired by Douglas County Superior Court Judge David Emerson, this permanent Judicial Council Standing Committee on Technology will lead the judicial branch by providing guidance and oversight of its technology initiatives.
Our courts on their own are rapidly moving away from paper documents into the digital age. At the Supreme Court, lawyers must now electronically file all cases. This past year, we successfully launched the next phase by working with trial courts to begin transmitting their entire court record to us electronically. The Court of Appeals also now requires the e-filing of applications to appeal, and this year, will join the Supreme Court in accepting electronic trial records.

Our goal is to develop a uniform statewide electronic filing and retrieval system so that lawyers and others throughout the judiciary can file and access data the easiest way possible.
Using a single portal, attorneys will be able to file documents with trial courts and appellate courts – and retrieve them from any court in the state. This is the system advocated by our partner, President Bob Kaufman of the State Bar of Georgia, and by attorneys throughout the state.
Such a system will not only make our courts more efficient at huge savings, but it will make Georgia safer. When our trial judges conduct bond hearings, for example, they often lack critical information about the person before them. They usually have reports about any former convictions, but they may not have information about cases pending against the defendant in other courts. The technology exists now to ensure that they do.
Also on the horizon is the expanded use of videoconferencing – another electronic
improvement that will save money and protect citizens’ lives. After a conviction and sentence to prison, post-trial hearings require courts to send security teams to pick up the prisoner and bring him to court. Without encroaching on the constitutional right of confrontation, we could videoconference the inmate’s testimony from his prison cell. Again, the technology already exists.
Our Committee on Technology will be at the forefront of guiding our courts into the 21st century.


As Georgia grows, it grows more diverse.
Our Georgia courts are required by the federal government to provide language services free of charge to litigants and witnesses, not only in criminal cases but in civil cases as well.
Even for fluent English speakers, the judicial system can be confusing and unwelcoming.
My vision for Georgia’s judiciary in the 21st century is that every court, in every city and every county in Georgia, will have the capacity of serving all litigants, speaking any language, regardless of national origin, from the moment they enter the courthouse until the moment they leave. That means that on court websites, signs and forms will be available in multiple languages, that all court staff will have the tools they need to assist any customers, and that court proceedings will have instant access to the interpreters of the languages they need.
Chief Magistrate Kristina Blum of the Gwinnett County Magistrate Court has been
working hard to ensure access to justice for all those who come to her court, most of whom are representing themselves.
Recently her court created brochures that provide guidance for civil trials, family
violence matters, warrant applications, garnishments, and landlord-tenant disputes. These brochures provide basic information about each proceeding – what to expect and how best to present their case in court.
Judge Blum, who is in line to be president of the Council of Magistrate Judges and is a member of our Judicial Council, has had the brochures translated into Spanish, Korean and Vietnamese. Such non-legalese forms and tutorial videos that our citizens can understand go a long way toward building trust in the judicial system, and in our entire government.
The Supreme Court Commission on Interpreters, chaired by Justice Keith Blackwell, is
making significant strides in ensuring that our courts uphold the standards of due process. With the help of Commission member Jana Edmondson-Cooper, an energetic attorney with the Georgia Legal Services Program, the Commission is working around the state to educate judges,court administrators and lawyers on the judiciary’s responsibilities in providing language assistance.
The essence of due process is the opportunity to be heard. Our justice system is the envy of other countries because it is open and fair to everyone seeking justice. By helping those who have not yet mastered English, we reinforce the message that the doors to the best justice system in the world are open to everyone.
Our law demands it. Our Constitution demands it.


The courts of the 21st century will symbolize a new era. A turning point in our history occurred when we realized there was a smarter way to handle criminals.
Six years ago, my colleague and then Chief Justice Carol Hunstein accompanied
Representative Wendell Willard to Alabama to explore how that state was reforming its criminal justice system. Back in Georgia, Governor Deal seized the reins, brought together the three branches of government, and through extraordinary leadership, has made criminal justice reform a reality. Georgia is now a model for the nation.
Today, following an explosive growth in our prison population that doubled between
1990 and 2011 and caused corrections costs to top one billion dollars a year, last year our prison population was the lowest it has been in 10 years. Our recidivism rate is the lowest it’s been in three decades. And we have turned back the tide of rising costs.
For the last five years, the Georgia Council on Criminal Justice Reform – created by the governor and your legislation – has been busy transforming our criminal justice system into one that does a better job of protecting public safety while holding non-violent offenders accountable and saving millions in taxpayer dollars. I am extremely grateful to this Council and commend the steady leadership of co-chairs Judge Michael Boggs of the Court of Appeals and Thomas Worthy of the State Bar of Georgia.
Throughout this historic reform, Georgia’s trial court judges have been in the trenches.
Our number one goal in criminal justice reform is to better protect the safety of our citizens.
Central to that goal is the development of our specialty courts – what some call accountability courts.
These courts have a proven track record of reducing recidivism rates and keeping our
citizens safe. Nationwide, 75 percent of drug court graduates remain free of arrest two years after completing the program, and the most conservative analyses show that drug courts reduce crime as much as 45 percent more than other sentencing options. Last year, these courts helped save Georgia more than $51 million in prison costs.
From the beginning, you in the legislature have steadfastly supported the growth in these courts, most recently appropriating more than $19 million for the current fiscal year.
Georgia now has 131 of these courts, which include drug courts, DUI courts, juvenile and adult mental health courts, and veterans courts. Today, only two judicial circuits in the state do not yet have a specialty court, and both are in the early stages of discussing the possibility of starting one. In addition to those already involved, last year alone, we added nearly 3500 new participants to these courts.
Behind that number are individual tales of lives changed and in some cases, lives saved.
Our judges, who see so much failure, take pride in these success stories. And so should you.

Chief Judge Richard Slaby of the Richmond County State Court, speaks with great pride of Judge David Watkins and the specialty courts that have grown under Judge Watkins’ direction. Today the recidivism rate among the Augusta participants is less than 10 percent.
The judges who run these courts are committed and deserve our thanks. We are grateful to leaders like Judge Slaby, who is President-Elect of the Council of State Court Judges and a member of our Judicial Council; to Judge Stephen Goss of the Dougherty Superior Court, whose mental health court has been recognized as one of the best mental health courts in our country; to Chief Judge Brenda Weaver, President of the Council of Superior Court Judges and a member of our Judicial Council. Judge Weaver of the Appalachian Judicial Circuit serves on the Council of
Accountability Court Judges of Georgia, which you created last year by statute. Its purpose is to improve the quality of our specialty courts through proven standards and practices, and it is chaired by Superior Court Judge Jason Deal of Hall County. Judge Deal’s dedication to the specialty court model in his community, and his guidance and encouragement to programs throughout the state, are described as invaluable by those who work with him.


We may not have a unified court system in Georgia. But we have judges unified in their commitment to our courts. Among our one thousand four hundred and fifty judges, Georgia has many fine leaders. I’ve told you about a number of them today. In closing, I want to mention two more.
When the United States Supreme Court issued its historic decision last year on same-sex marriage, our Council of Probate Court Judges led the way toward compliance. Three months before the ruling was issued, the judges met privately at the behest of the Council’s then president, Judge Chase Daughtrey of Cook County, and his successor, Judge Don Wilkes of Emanuel County. Together, they determined that regardless of what the Supreme Court decided, they would follow the law. Both Governor Deal and Attorney General Sam Olens also publicly announced they would respect the court’s decision, despite tremendous pressure to do otherwise.
These men are all great leaders who spared our state the turmoil other states endured. The bottom line is this: In Georgia, we may like the law, we may not like the law, but we follow the law.


The day-to-day business of the Georgia courts rarely makes the news. Rather judges,
their staff and clerks spend their days devoted to understanding the law, tediously pushing cases through to resolution, committed to ferreting out the truth and making the right decision. It is not easy, and they must often stand alone, knowing that when they sentence someone to prison, many lives hang in the balance between justice and mercy.
So I thank all of our leaders, and I thank all of our judges who are leading our courts into the 21st century.
May God bless them. May God bless you. And may God bless all the people of Georgia.
Thank you.

Bar Groups See Threat from Nonlawyers

At ABA Meeting, Bar Groups See Threat from Nonlawyers

A modest proposal that hints at opening the door to nonlawyers providing simple legal services faces a tough fight at the American Bar Association’s midyear meetings, which are currently underway in San Diego.

The ABA’s Litigation Section, as well as the bar associations of Illinois, Nevada, New York, New Jersey and Texas, are all on record opposing Resolution 105, which was submitted by the Commission on the Future of Legal Services and five other ABA divisions. The commission was formed in August 2014 by then-incoming ABA president William Hubbard, who has been vocal about the need to improve access to justice. Under the leadership of former Northrop Grumman Corporation lawyer Judy Perry Martinez, the commission has explored new ways to improve the delivery of civil legal services to the public, especially to those who can’t afford a lawyer or are confused by the legal system.

While the 30-member commission has considered many possible solutions—from technological innovations to allowing nonlawyers to provide limited legal services—Resolution 105 doesn’t propose any specific changes to the status quo. Instead, it asks the ABA to adopt “Model Regulatory Objectives for the Provision of Legal Services” that are guided by such benign principles as protection of the public and meaningful access to justice. It also urges each state’s highest court to be guided by these objectives if it is considering new rules to allow activity by “nontraditional legal service providers.”

While the resolution doesn’t advocate for such changes, the mere mention of “nontraditional legal service providers” raises hackles for some in the ABA. The Texas state bar board, for example, has asked Texas delegates to withhold their support for Resolution 105. State bar president-elect Frank Stevenson II of Locke Lord said the board opposes the proposal because it seems to presume there’s a place for nonlawyers to provide legal services. He added that Texas’ chief justice has already set up a commission to study how lawyers can reach more of the public, and his group wants to wait for that group to finish its work.

“Our position shouldn’t be interpreted as rigidly opposed to innovation in the provision of legal services,” Stevenson said. But he added, “We feel lawyers are not fungible with nonlawyers.”

The New Jersey State Bar Association’s board of trustees voted unanimously to oppose the resolution, also because it envisions new categories of legal service providers. The ABA’s Litigation Section voted 17-8 against it.

Philadelphia lawyer Lawrence Fox of Drinker Biddle & Reath, who has long crusaded against allowing nonlawyers to provide legal services, sent a Jan. 29 email to all delegates with the subject line “Save Our Profession.” He implored them to reject Resolution 105: “If we are going to show leadership, it ought to be in opposing the unauthorized practice of law, wherever it rears its ugly head,” he wrote.

The resolution does have some organized support, including from the South Carolina Bar Association, the ABA’s Business Law Section, the Bar Association of San Francisco and the Washington State Bar Association. (In Washington state, licensed nonlawyers already provide some legal services.)

ABA President Paulette Brown declined to comment on the resolution or the work of the commission.

The commission will hold a roundtable discussion in San Diego on Saturday and will meet again on Sunday. The ABA’s House of Delegates will consider the resolution on Monday.

A simple majority vote is needed to adopt a resolution. The ABA has 560 delegates, but it’s not clear how many will be present Monday.

Over the past year and a half, the Commission on the Future of Legal Services has sought new ideas to improve the public’s access to legal solutions. In May of last year it held a National Summit on Innovation in Legal Services at Stanford Law School that drew 200 participants, including 12 state court chief justices, the CEO of LegalZoom, a Microsoft Corp. in-house lawyer and numerous academics.

The following month, in a podcast on the Legal Talk Network, commission chairman Martinez sounded optimistic that the profession might change. “There’s room in this space to think differently about how we provide legal services,” she said. “This has the potential for sea change.”

Some of the profession’s rules, she said, serve as barriers that don’t protect the public. “We’re making sure that lawyers understand what services aren’t needed to be delivered by a lawyer and can in fact be delivered by somebody else.”

Martinez also noted that some lawyers might have trouble adjusting to a new model: “[There] will be some pain for those not alert and ready for change.”

Martinez could not be reached for comment.

The United Kingdom has already allowed some of the changes that are being fought over in the United States. In 2007 it passed the Legal Services Act, which permits so-called alternative business structures in the practice of law. The U.K. law breaks down many of the barriers that prevented nonlawyers from providing legal services or supplying capital to legal service providers.

Stanford Law School professor Deborah Rhode, who co-chaired last year’s summit and who directs the Center on the Legal Profession at Stanford University, called the May gathering an “extraordinary show of support for innovation” by ABA leadership. Four past, current and future ABA presidents attended, she noted.

“The major challenge for the ABA is how to get the rank and file behind some of these innovative initiatives,” she said. “A lot of lawyers feel very threatened.”

Rhode criticized the organized opposition against Resolution 105. “It’s such a mindless reflexive response,” she said. “This [change] is coming whether the bar likes it or not. Sticking their heads in the sand and trying to block even such an unobjectionable compromise position [in Resolution 105] seems a step in the wrong direction.”

She added, “This is why I titled my book ‘The Trouble with Lawyers,’” referring to her 2015 book critiquing the profession.

“I don’t think it’s fair to say that everyone who has concerns is sticking their heads in the sand,” said Locke Lord’s Stevenson, the Texas bar president. “A lot of criticism has been very nuanced and raises some issues that need to be addressed.”

“Four judicial appointments are being denied Gov. Nathan Deal”. “over a period of decades, it has become customary throughout Georgia for a judge to resign mid-way through the final elected term, which allows the governor to install an incumbent of his choice in time for the next nonpartisan election. Which usually discourages all challengers. Bestowing these prizes has become one of the great perks of the governor’s office.”

We told you earlier this morning that Allison Barnes Salter, daughter of former Gov. Roy Barnes and a managing partner in the Barnes Law Group, will run for an open seat on the Cobb County State Court bench.

But that is only part of the story.

(Allison Salter Barnes, who announced her candidacy for a state court judgeship on Tuesday).

A total of four judges in Cobb County – all women, one on the superior court bench and three on the state court bench – have announced that they will not be running for re-election when their terms expire this year.

Which means that four judicial appointments are being denied Gov. Nathan Deal.

This is actually how the system is supposed to work. But over a period of decades, it has become customary throughout Georgia for a judge to resign mid-way through the final elected term, which allows the governor to install an incumbent of his choice in time for the next nonpartisan election. Which usually discourages all challengers. Bestowing these prizes has become one of the great perks of the governor’s office.

One can’t rule out the possibility that these departing judges hold a fervent belief in the power of voters. Superior Court Judge Adele Grubbs, who is retiring at age 72, won her seat on the bench in a 2000 election. State Court Judge Melanie Clayton first won her seat in an open-field election in 1992.

But we also may be seeing something of a Democratic hangover here. Kathryn Tanksley, another departing state court judge, was appointed as one of the last acts of Governor Barnes before he left office in 2002. And State Court Judge Irma Glover, whose retirement was announced Tuesday in the Daily Report, was a 1995 appointee of Gov. Zell Miller.

A Must See For Every True American

American Prosperity: “Obama Left the Border Open Something Deadlier than Ebola Found Its Way In”

Because Obama Left the Border Open Something Deadlier than Ebola Found Its Way In…

Screen Shot 2014 11 01 at 9 14 02 PM 300x236

Obama demonstrated what could be called a most lackluster response to a serious crisis when he allowed the Ebola virus into the U.S.

His actions to refuse to stop flights into America from Western Africa led to Ebola’s emergence here in the U.S.

But what isn’t being discussed nearly as much as it should be is how Obama’s failure to close the American-Mexico border has likely contributed to the emergence of another super-deadly virus.

One that has killed far more people than Ebola has so far.

The virus is known as EV-D68. It’s an enterovirus similar to polio, but slightly different in structure.

So far thousands of men, women and children have fallen ill with the virus and as many as nine people have died since contracting it.

Top health officials have made connections to the EV-D68 virus that has shown up in numerous locations in the U.S. to the same EV-D68 virus from Central America.

As the Daily Caller reports:

So far, that virus has been found in nine American kids who died from illness, has apparently inflicted unprecedented polio-like paralysis in roughly 50 kids, and has put hundreds of young American kids into hospital emergency wards and intensive care units throughout more than 40 states.

A series of government researchers, health experts and academics refused to comment, or else urged self-censorship, when they were pressed by The Daily Caller for statistical and scientific data that would exonerate Obama and his deputies.

As illegals have surged over the border, health officials knew this kind of fallout was possible. And that’s why they’re keeping quiet about it now. Because the connection is obvious.

Enteroviruses infect anywhere from 10-15 million people in the U.S. a year. But what’s different about this particular strain is its origins are likely from people who came here illegally.

The path of illegals from Central American countries as well as Mexico has been well documented, and with 100s upon 1,000s of them making it over the border every day, the likelihood the virus came in with them is extremely high.

If nothing else, this kind of health debacle demonstrates how Obama’s ineptitude isn’t just maddening, it’s deadly.

The Anatomy of Yet Another Unnecessary Murder: How the Justice System Failed Eugenia Calle and Is Failing Us All

by Tina in Atlanta,Citizens Fight Back,Crime and Justice Blog,Judges,Recidivism

Introduction

What follows is a preliminary effort to piece together Shamal (aka Jamal) Thompson’s long and troubling journey through Georgia’s broken criminal justice system prior to February 17, 2009, the day he murdered* an innocent cancer researcher named Eugenia Calle. Ten months earlier, a DeKalb County Superior Court Judge named Cynthia J. Becker let Thompson walk free from what should have been a ten-year sentence for burglary. She did so on the grounds that he was a first-time offender.

He was not.

I gathered the records of Thompson’s many other criminal charges and pleas merely through Internet searches and a few phone calls to court clerks in Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett Counties in Georgia. These counties and jurisdictions vary quite significantly in their commitment to making public safety information available to the public. Fulton County’s public records system is almost uniquely shameful in comparison to similar courts throughout the country, while DeKalb County’s records are impressively detailed and easy to access on-line.

This information is preliminary, based only on a few phone calls and web searches. If you choose to reproduce or quote this article, please understand that I am unable to guarantee its absolute accuracy at this point. Court records themselves often contain errors, and I can only reproduce what is entered on-line by the courts. However, I include the public records case numbers for every case I cite, and if anyone involved in the justice system (or not) wishes to offer corrections or add to this account, please contact me through this website.

Why Didn’t Judge Cynthia Becker Do What I Did?

I am not a lawyer. I don’t even live in Georgia anymore, though I lived in southeast Atlanta for twenty years. Yet I managed to look up Shamal Thompson’s criminal history while sitting at a computer in Florida. From 500 miles away, with no press credentials or official status or legal secretary or law clerk, I was able to easily discover what several judges in Georgia apparently did not care enough to find out: Shamal Thompson was no “first-time offender,” or mere “troubled kid” when he strolled into courtrooms throughout Metro Atlanta and was repeatedly given a slap on the wrist and a fourth, or tenth, second chance. He was no first-time offender when he strolled into Eugenia Calle’s condominium and beat her to death on Tuesday.

He was clearly no first-time offender in 2006, when he walked away from felony charges of aggravated assault in DeKalb County after the ADA declined to present the case against him to the Grand Jury (DeKalb County on-line Judicial System, #D0170113). He was no first-time offender in 2007, when State Court of Fulton County Judge John Mather let him take a plea on theft-by-taking (State Court of Fulton County #06CR314782). And he was certainly no first-time offender ten months ago, when DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Cynthia J. Becker let him walk out of prison with time served on a ten-year sentence for Burglary that she chose to reduce to a six-month “first offender” sentence, and then reduced, even more, to time served (DeKalb County On-Line Judicial System #07CR3936).

How does ten years become six months become time served? How does somebody who has bonded out of several courts and been charged with multiple crimes multiple times keep getting defined as a “first-time offender?” Why do judges keep releasing him, and DAs keep declining to prosecute him? How many innocent people have to die before we acknowledge that our courts are so de-funded and functionally broken that predators have little or nothing to fear from being arrested over and over and over again?

How many people have to die before we say that we’ve had enough?

Here is the burglary sentence delivered to Shamal Jerome Thompson on April 3, 2008 in a courtroom in DeKalb County, Georgia. Think of it as Eugenia Calle’s death sentence:

SIGNED BY JUDGE BECKER ON 4/3/2008
Why did Judge Becker give Thompson First Offender status? His adult record stretches back virtually to the day he ceased being a juvenile, which certainly suggests that he committed crimes that we, the public, cannot even know about before he turned 18. And why, once again, was I able to find these things on-line, hundreds of miles away, while the courts in Atlanta kept letting Shamal Thompson back onto the streets?

WSB Atlanta offers some truly gut-wrenching insight into what Judge Becker was using her Internet for when she should have been looking into Thompson’s criminal history before sentencing him on those burglary charges. She was looking at the bridal gown website Thompson claimed to have designed. According to WSB (and WSB was the only news station that reported this), “Judge Becker cited the Web site and the ‘beautiful designs’ on the site as part of the reason for the light sentence she gave Thompson in the burglary case.”

Let’s take a moment to let that sink in.

Perhaps because I wasn’t busy looking at bridal gowns, what I found on-line about Shamal Thompson had less to do with taffeta than serial identity theft. And fraud. Little clues that should have led the Judge to ask herself: “Is this guy even telling me the truth when he tells me he’s a bridal fashion designer?” Cynthia Becker needs to resign, out of embarrassment if not some deeper comprehension of the grotesquely ironic lack of judgment she displayed.

Am I the only person who thinks Cynthia Becker needs to quit her day job? Well, here’s a good way for you to decide. Because DeKalb County keeps such stellar on-line records, you can actually go to their website, the Online Judicial System of DeKalb County.

Go to Shamal Thompson’s case, #07CR3936, and you will see a list of documents – a case docket. Some of the documents are on-line, and some, like the court transcripts, aren’t on-line, but you can go to the court and request to see those. Or pick some other offender – someone who has been terrorizing your neighborhood, or someone who has been in and out of the courts, or another of Becker’s cases. Take a look at the dockets and think about all of the money we’re wasting on truly baroque and foolish things, while the crimes themselves – the point of the courts – seem to literally disappear in the endless processing and pleading and not prosecuting, or “nolle prosequi.”

Nolle prosequi can occur because nobody had the resources to even investigate the case, or because there are too many defendants, or too many crimes, or because the public has become so gob-smacked with the idea that they are freeing innocent men that it is practically impossible to get most people put away anymore. Nolle prosequi might as well be translated: we’re losing this game every day.

And don’t expect critical news about the broken court system from the daily paper. They run personality pieces on criminals and mash notes about defense attorneys and never, ever, challenge judges. The AJC hasn’t done a substantive series questioning sentencing in the courts since 1993. They’ll go after the police, and some of the time when they do they should, but the courts get treated with real kid gloves.

So I encourage you to go to the courthouse and see how things work. But please remember, court clerks are busy people. The good ones rank among the un-noticed heroes of our dysfunctional courts. They don’t get the cushy no-show jobs like Juanita Hicks, former Fulton County Clerk of Court, who appointed her crony, Cathelene Robinson, who then turned around and paid Juanita to “write a history of the Clerk’s Office,” which Hicks of course, didn’t get around to writing.

But she did take the money, which is just one reason why Fulton County says it can’t afford to put criminal records on-line, so you can’t go on-line and find information about the dirt-bag who just kicked in your back door.

Just remember that when you’re standing in the hallway of the courthouse with a paper in your hand on which Judge Cynthia Becker prattles on about Shamal Thompson’s design skills: it wasn’t the clerk behind the counter who let Thompson walk out the door you’re about to walk out through. The clerk behind the counter probably would have thrown him in prison, where he belonged.

Who is Shamal Thompson?

I know nothing of Thompson’s life story. For that type of “color coverage,” you’ll have to wait for the AJC to run long, plaintive stories about his difficult youth. Meanwhile, here is what I was able to find out about Shamal Thompson’s crimes and history, so far:

Thompson was born either on 3/11/86 or 11/3/86, and he may well have used different birthdates, as well as different names, to avoid detection of his other crimes. Of course, with technology like the In-ter-net, and fingerprint databases, such simple ploys should not have worked at all. Did they? Interesting question.

On May 18, 2005, a warrant was issued for Thompson in Gwinnett County on the charge of theft by receiving stolen property (#05W-17152). It would be two years before the courts addressed these charges. He also apparently committed an act of theft on December 9, 2005 (#06CR314782). The information I received was confusing, but the State Court of Fulton County wouldn’t address those charges, either, until 2007.

Meanwhile, on September 28, 2005, Thompson was arrested in DeKalb County. He was released on October 5. Charges included felony aggravated assault, fleeing/attempt to elude, and reckless driving. Eight months later, on July 25, 2006, an Assistant District Attorney declined to present the case to a Grand Jury in DeKalb, and Thompson walked (#D0170113, or use the name Shamal Thompson, and be sure to hit the “all” button on the “case status” prompt).

Why did the ADA decline to go forward with the case? Why didn’t the jurisdictions of Gwinnett and DeKalb communicate with each other and deliver Thompson to Gwinnett to face his outstanding warrant there?

In any case, on August 26, 2006 (note, we’re up to 2006 now – the dates get confusing: there’s so many of them), Thompson committed a felony burglary in DeKalb County. He was arrested and spent five days in jail – from September 30 to October 4, 2006. This case wouldn’t reappear until 2008, in Judge Becker’s court.

About ten weeks later, December 5, 2006, Thompson was in trouble again, this time in the State Court of Fulton County. I have little information on this case, and the on-line database from the State Court of Fulton County is ridiculously unusable. The charge was forgery-in-the-first-degree; Thompson was the second defendant in the case, and it is “still open,” according to a helpful clerk on the phone. The case number is #06CP5770.

Next, on or around December 18, 2006, Thompson was either charged with theft-of-services and identity fraud or appeared in court on those charges. Again, the information I have is confusing, but the clerk told me that the case is still open; the “last court date scheduled for it was January 2, 2007; and that the Fulton DA “hasn’t scheduled another court date.” The case number is #06CP60870.

All of this could be made clear to us on-line, of course, if there were any functioning leadership at the Clerk of Court during the expensive and ruinous years of Juanita Hicks and Cathelene Robinson.

The next day, December 19, 2006, Thompson had 11 counts of identity fraud “dismissed at jail.” Whatever that means. It could be that some overworked cop didn’t show up, or didn’t show up the sixth time, after Thompson’s defense attorney managed to spin the date a half-dozen times before. It could mean some paperwork disappeared. Or was disappeared. It could be that the overworked DA’s office couldn’t cope, that the case seemed insignificant compared to the thousands of others they were investigating and preparing. In any case, in case #06CP60926, Thompson walked out the door. Free again.

For forty days, at least. On January 30, 2007, the State Court of Fulton County got around to addressing Thompson’s 12/9/2005 theft charge. Judge John Mather accepted a plea, and Thompson walked. The case number is #06CR314782.

It would be great if somebody in Atlanta would go to the State Court of Fulton County and take a look at Judge Mather’s sentence and any other materials related to the case. For if Thompson accepted a plea, why is it that Judge Becker gave him a first-time offender’s break, and Judge Michael Clark (we’ll get to him next) simply dropped charges against him and let him walk?

Onward and upward. On April 23, 2007, Judge Michael Clark of the Gwinnett Superior Court cut Thompson a deal: in exchange for Thompson pleading guilty to theft by receiving, Clark dropped another charge of theft by taking and gave him five years probation — as a first offender. Case #06-B-02474-4, Gwinnett Courts.

Questions arise. If Thompson pleaded guilty on January 30, 2007, why did he get to plead guilty, again, as a first offender, some seven weeks later? For that matter, had Judge Mather give him a first-offender deal, too, those seven weeks prior to his second first-offender plea, despite his juvenile record, if it exists, and all the other confirmed charges floating around? The head swims. But, then again, I’m sitting here in Florida, getting paid nothing to watch the dolphins cavort, dreaming of crime victims.

I’m not some judge in her chambers in DeKalb County getting paid to enforce the law. Dreaming of wedding gowns.

Some time around February 11, 2008, Shamal Thompson was back in jail again in DeKalb County, where he stayed until April 3, when he convinced Judge Cynthia J. Becker that his bridal gown web design skills entitled him to a third first-offender sentence, a further reduction in that sentence, and immediate release with time served, justice be damned.

And 319 days later it was, wasn’t it?

What Will Happen Now?

What will happen now is that Shamal Thompson has just bought himself (on our tab) a very expensive and high-profile defense team who will use our money to accuse us as a society of failing this talented /troubled/ mentally unstable/ promising/ neglected/ sensitive/ misunderstood young man while using every trick they’ve embedded in the criminal justice system to try to get him off again as they grandstand to enhance their public personas while lining their pockets and wailing that they do all this in order to defend justice from its enemies.

Lapdogs in the daily press will breathlessly report this.

Eugenia Calle’s family and loved ones will bury her body and remember all the good she did while she was alive.

Her colleagues will go back to trying to cure cancer.

Who Was That Who Saw it Coming?

In 2005, a writer named Coley Ward published a startling article in Atlanta’s Creative Loafing. Called “Case Dismissed: Accused Felons Often Are Released When Officers Fail to Testify,” Ward interviewed Fulton County Magistrate Judge Richard Hicks, who complained that more than half of the felony cases scheduled in his courtroom had to be dismissed, usually when police officers didn’t show up to testify. The police argued back that they didn’t always receive subpoenas in time, or that they were on duty elsewhere or off the clock – working for free. DA Paul Howard (whose own staff is stretched beyond human means) argued that most of those felons eventually got re-arrested for something else and thus indicted, an argument Judge Hicks called statistically untrue. Even if it were true, Coley Ward points out, what type of system lets out half its felons, or more, on the grounds that they’ll be back again soon?

Everybody agreed on one thing, though: the justice system is so broken that the chance of a felon even getting indicted once he has been caught, if he is caught, is so small in Fulton County that it hardly seems worth worrying about.

Now picture Shamal Thompson boldly strolling through Dr. Eugenia Calle’s condominium lobby, trying to get back into her apartment, where he knew her body lay, after killing her and going on a cold-blooded shopping spree with her credit card. No consequences. No fear.

We should have all seen it coming. Thompson appears before Judge Richard Hicks on March 3, four years after Hicks pulled the fire alarm on his own courthouse.

And the Mayor and the Chief of Police continue to say that there’s no problem, that it’s all in people’s heads, that crime is down.

I once had a defense attorney say: “Geez, you take this stuff so personally.” Well, I’m a victim of violent crime, and so is my husband and many, many of my friends in Atlanta. I matriculated from Emory University’s Graduate School, and as a public health worker and lobbyist, I occasionally worked with the epidemiologists, including those involved in seeking the links between hormones and cancer that defined Eugenie Calle’s research (I never met her). My dear friend, Toni, lost her life to cancer two years ago. Another dear friend and mentor, Vicki, has been fighting breast cancer for years. I lost a beloved male friend suddenly to cancer last year. And since Christmas, my mother has been waging a valiant fight against late-stage lung and brain cancer.

So, yeah. As someone who prays daily for those gone to cancer and those fighting it now, I take the loss of a brilliant and dedicated cancer researcher personally. God rest.

As a crime victim, I take crime personally.

As an Emory alum, I take their community’s safety personally, and I would expect all members of the campus, even those faculty of the offender-besotted-ilk, to take the murder of a member of their community seriously.

As a woman, I take the vulnerability of women personally. As a former Atlantan who worked hard to make the city a safer place for women and children, I take crime in Atlanta seriously.

It’s up to us – black and white, neighbor by neighbor by neighbor, to come together to demand that criminals be removed from the streets. Permanently. The only way to break the cycle of violence — to save the younger brothers and sisters of all the Shamal Thompsons out there, is to change what the courts have been doing for the last thirty years.

Stop letting the predators out. All of them.

Start prosecuting crimes. All of them.

Start telling us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what is happening in our courts. They are the problem. And that is what this blog will be about.

I am so, so sorry for Eugenia Calle and for the people who loved her.

Tomorrow: What citizens in Atlanta are doing to fight crime and monitor the courts.

*Of course, Thompson has not yet been convicted of the crime.

“Truly Frightening”: Doctors being threatened for linking illnesses to Fukushima — Strange tumors, kids dying, pets dying — Much higher incidences of whole range of health problems reported — Experts: 1,000,000 cancers, plus many other ailments possible (AUDIO & VIDEO)

Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds Energy Education on Radio Ecoshock, released Oct 29, 2014:

Alex Smith, host of RadioEcoshock (at 10:30 in): We’ve heard almost nothing about the impacts [of the Fukushima catastrophe] on people in that region. There are accounts coming out of there of strange tumors, kids dying, pets dying — what have you heard? Can we ever expect an honest accounting from Japanese authorities?
Arnie Gundersen, nuclear engineer (emphasis added): That’s a pretty good summary, frankly. We continue to get information from people who live there about cancer rates — and illnesses in general, not just cancer. We think of radiation as a cancer causing thing, but it also causes many other ailments. Much higher incidences of a whole range of illnesses than they had in 2010, the year before the accident… We’re also working with doctors in Japan, and some brave doctors are saying that they’ve been threatened — that their hospital rights have been threatened — if you tell your patient this illness is radiation related you’ll lose your right to practice and things like that. So there’s enormous pressure on the medical community to tell the patients that what they’re experiencing is not at all related to radiation. The key is statistics, and the question is when will the statistics be released for mortality, morbidity, and general illnesses… We’re not seeing the data. The medical community now has to file every report that it writes with the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency, before it’s issued. So if you’re a hospital, and you’ve got mortality data, you’re not allowed to issue that to the public until those reports have been cleared by the IAEA. Well, Article II of the IAEA charter is to promote nuclear power. So even if the hospital was conscientious — there’s a lot of political pressure not to be — but even if it was conscientious, there’s another step in the process, and they’ve got to clear an IAEA hurdle before those numbers are released. It’s truly frightening, the pressure the medical community is undergoing in Japan. Very few of them are willing to tell the truth.
Arnie Gundersen, nuclear engineer, Oct. 20, 2014 (at 15:00 in): There’s experts out there like me – independent experts – who are saying that as many as a million cancers may result.

Interview with Olli Heinonen, former IAEA deputy director general, former Finland Reactor Laboratory senior officer and senior fellow at Harvard University (emphasis added): “[We] have a potential catastrophe on our hands… I think that when this thing is over — this is certainly a national catastrophe for Japan — but actually this a catastrophe for every citizen of the world… Russians, Americans, they are also subject radiation. The radiation doesn’t recognize borders… It looks to be a very dire situation.”

United Nations (pdf), 2014: Estimated doses in the first year following the [Fukushima] accident

> Italy — External exposure, inhalation and ingestion of 131I, 134Cs, 137Cs

  • 1-year-old: 180 microsieverts/year
  • Adult: 35 microsieverts/year
  • Very conservative assumptions were applied as the highest concentration values measured for each radionuclide in rainwater were used to calculate the dose from ingested water.

> Serbia — Effective doses from 131I concentrations in food, milk, air and rainwater

  • Adult estimated effective dose: 7.2 microsieverts/month
  • [Does NOT include: Inhaled 134Cs/137Cs; Ingested 134Cs/137Cs; External doses]

Nuclear Physics Workshop (pdf), Apr. 12, 2014: Data discussed in the present work includes the observations of Fukushima related radionuclides in… Italy… [transported] from Japan, across the Pacific and to Central Europe… Estimated committed doses for population related to the contributions of Fukushima fallout due to different pathways were at least one order of magnitude [i.e. around ten times] less of the limit of 1 [millisievert a year] even if the calculations are made using high conservative assumptions… caesium and iodine were found above their detection limits in all environmental samples, but well below levels of concern.

Dr. Steve Wing, Univ. of North Carolina epidemiologist: “What we know about radiation is any amount increases risk of cancer… [At Fukushima] there’s a spectrum of types of radiation being emitted… Risks to populations exposed will play out over the rest of their lives. Even after the radiation is gone, genetic damage could lead to cancer many years later.”
