INVASION INCOMING PART 14: Massive New Migrant Caravan Leaves Honduras, New Crisis Created Reader 12/31/2018 (Mon) 13:05:01 Id: fb8dff [Preview] No. 13511 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A new, larger migrant caravan is set to leave Honduras on Jan. 15 according to Spanish-language media and migrant rights advocates.

"They say they are even bigger and stronger than the last caravan," according to Irma Garrido of migrant advocacy group Reactiva Tijuana Foundation.

News of the new caravan comes as thousands of Central American migrants from an October caravan remain stranded at various cities along the US-Mexico border as they face wait times of up to several months for the United States to process their asylum requests. What's more, if migrants cannot justify their asylum claims, they may be denied.

Coordinators who helped direct the migrants on the 2,000-mile trek with bullhorns, arranging for buses and giving advice along the way, have mostly vanished. Many of the migrants say they feel abandoned and unsure where to turn next. Some are ready to return home.

Garrido said this new, larger caravan will probably be joined by more people in El Salvador and in Guatemala, but she said they don’t plan on coming straight to the Tijuana-San Diego border, where resources are already stretched nearly to a breaking point. -LA Times

"They will stay in the south of Mexico in Chiapas and Oaxaca. Their aim is to request work there," said Garrido.

Meanwhile, an incoming congresswoman of the Texas border city of El Paso has warned of an imminent "crisis" as the city scrambles to accommodate at least 1,600 migrants dumped by federal authorities over the last several days. The issue is that the entire town is packed to the brim with fans attending the Sun Bowl college football game El Paso has hosted since 1935.

"We're facing a real crisis coming up … to find places for all of these (migrant) families," said Democratic representative-elect Veronica Escobar.

Escobar said migrants who can't be housed in shelters have been staying in hotel rooms paid by Annunciation House, the non-profit spearheading the efforts to house and feed them. But, she said, if U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continues releasing large numbers of migrants, the El Paso community will struggle to find places for them because many hotels have been booked by people attending Monday's game.

Brother Of Saudi Billionaire Prince Alwaleed Re-arrested Reader 12/31/2018 (Mon) 13:03:22 Id: f69ac3 [Preview] No. 13510 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Among the more notable geopolitical events that took place last week, and which was swept away by the chaos in the capital markets, was Thursday's surprising announcement of a Saudi cabinet reshuffle that moved around some of the key players in the Khashoggi murder scandal (most notably the chief Saudi diplomat, Adel al-Jubeir) and removed Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf al Saud as the Kingdom's ambassador to the UK.

As a result of the reshuffle, more liberals and progressives will move into positions of power, suggesting that it could be part of the Kingdom's plan to move ahead with its 'liberalizing' reforms to try and rehabilitate MbS's tarnished reputation as a reformer. Amid the reshuffle, the king also ordered the creation of a new political and security council (presumably to help protect his chosen successor's flank) and - in a move that is reminiscent of a controversial decision made by President Trump this year - establishes a new Saudi space agency.

The biggest change was the apparent demotion of al-Jubeir to the lesser position of minister of state for foreign affairs and moving Ibrahim al-Assaf, formerly the kingdom's finance minister, to the foreign affairs role. Al-Jubeir who was one of the kingdom's key liaisons with western media during its response to Khashoggi's killing and played an important role in the Saudis PR response to the Khashoggi killing, in addition to being a stalwart supporter of the Crown Prince.

But perhaps an even more prominent event took place just ahead of the reshuffle, when on Wednesday the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported that Saudi authorities have re-arrested the brother of billionaire Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal just days following the death of their "reformist" father, after Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the arrest of Khalid bin Talal.

"The arrest took place on Tuesday night and until Wednesday evening Khaled was not released despite some promises," the report said according to The New Arab.

Like his brother, Prince Khalid was freed in November after being detained for 11 months for criticising a crackdown on the kingdom's elite that saw dozens of princes, officials and tycoons imprisoned at Riyadh's Ritz-Carlton hotel. Prince Khalid's brother Al-Waleed, sometimes called the Warren Buffett of Saudi Arabia (despite his wealth plummeting 60% from its 2014 peak) was among those rounded up and was released in early January after an undisclosed financial agreement with the government.


Good! Brazil's New Nationalist Government Looks To Lax Previous Gun Control Laws Reader 12/31/2018 (Mon) 13:02:08 Id: c21c0b [Preview] No. 13509 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Brazil’s far-right President-elect Jair Bolsonaro said on Saturday he plans to issue a decree allowing all Brazilians without criminal records to own firearms, welcome news to many core supporters who want him to loosen Brazil’s strict gun laws.

Throughout his campaign, Bolsonaro had pledged to dismantle Brazil’s current gun legislation, which presents various bureaucratic and legal obstacles for people seeking to purchase firearms. That message appealed to many Brazilians who want to use guns for self-defense amid sky-high levels of violent crime.

“By decree, we plan to guarantee the ownership of firearms by citizens without criminal records,” Bolsonaro, who takes office on Jan. 1, wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

He did not provide additional details and it was not immediately clear what mechanisms Bolsonaro would have at his disposal to carry out such a decree, or what specific measures the decree would contain. Brazil’s Congress is already discussing measures to loosen gun control laws.

Gun manufacturers are among those that stand to benefit from such moves. Shares in Brazilian gun maker Taurus Armas SA have climbed some 88 percent year-to-date amid expectations that Bolsonaro would win the election and follow through on promises to liberalize gun laws.


Psychotic Oligarchs Lining Up to Ingest the Blood of Children In Hopes To Live Longer Reader 12/31/2018 (Mon) 13:00:49 Id: 704c51 [Preview] No. 13508 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
World leaders and elite businessmen are ingesting the blood of young children in order to achieve ‘eternal youth,’ a CBS report warns.

What was once dismissed as a ‘conspiracy theory’ is now being publicly acknowledged by billionaires and the mainstream media.

“Could the secret to eternal youth be found in blood transfusions from young people? Some claim that transfusions with “young blood” from teenagers can reverse the aging process,” the report from CBS reads.


Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: “I’m looking into parabiosis stuff, which I think is really interesting. This is where they did the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect,” Peter Thiel, the billionaire co-founder of PayPal and adviser to Donald Trump told Inc. magazine. “I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely under-explored.”

But it’s no longer an experiment with just mice. The startup company by Jesse Karmazin, Ambrosia, is doing this with humans, and the rich are lining up to get the blood of the young.

“Their brains are younger, their hearts. Their hair, if it was gray, it turns dark again,” Karmazin said of the treatment.

As Vanity Fair reports, Ambrosia, which buys its blood from blood banks, now has about 100 paying customers. Some are Silicon Valley technologists, like Thiel, though Karmazin stressed that tech types aren’t Ambrosia’s only clients and that anyone over 35 is eligible for its transfusions.

Good! In Drastic Reversal Trump Orders Total Troop Withdrawal From Syria Reader 12/19/2018 (Wed) 17:03:57 Id: 9b8351 [Preview] No. 13439 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
It's official, within an hour after the first headline the president tweeted "We have defeated ISIS in Syria" and in reference to reports of a planned US troop withdrawal from Syria which unnamed officials say is to be initiated "immediately," he added that the terror group's defeat was "my only reason for being there".

We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2018

Minutes after the WSJ first broke the story, The Washington Post confirmed the following through a defense official:

The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a decision that has not yet been announced, said the decision would include the entire force of more than 2,000 U.S. service members. It was made on Tuesday, the official said.

President Trump has long promised to conclude the campaign against the Islamic State and has questioned the value of costly and dangerous military missions overseas.

The WSJ just reported a monumental and historic reversal in White House policy on Syria, revealing Wednesday morning the Pentagon is preparing to withdraw all forces from northeastern Syria "immediately":


In an abrupt reversal, the U.S. military is preparing to withdraw its forces from northeastern Syria, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday, a move that throws the American strategy in the Middle East into turmoil.

It's not either-or. They're just a boogeyman and means to an end(s). The military industrial complex profits from them, Israel gets to annex land and advanced its Greater Israel plans, and they're also used as excuse for invasion of Europe.
So it's not actually false to say the americans fought ISIS. But it's only half the story.

It actually is false, and they are Mossad. American troops never fought ISIS. It was Syrian soldiers under Assad. Stop swallowing anything Trump says. He's a proven liar. Do you want that video? I can provide it.

It was both the US/Israel that created and funded/armed ISIS. This has been declassified already, its not a secret anymore. As far as US troops 'fighting' ISIS? I can't tell you what the hell they did over there because I don't know what those troops did, however I conclude they were only sent there to keep Russia/Syrian troops away from certain territories while ISIS re-couped.

The good news, as far as I've heard, is we are finally getting out. The US/Israel Zionists have egg all over their faces and are raving mad about it. But they lost and they know they lost.

And for those here who support Assad in his efforts to protect his nation, you best be thanking Putin for getting involved and helping out because if not for Russia Syria would have been reduced to rubble and taken over by these Zionist neo-con nutcases.

Putin is a Zionist nutcase, passing holocast "denial" bullshit law in 2014. There is perpetual Russian propaganda villainizing Kiev fighters plus National Socialists. He has two jewish grandfathers and a jewish mother. Putin only protects Syria due to them being allied. I don't thank kikes.

That may all be so, regardless if it was not for Russia, Syria would have had a very difficult time defending their country. The Israel/US/UK/France terror alliance was HELL BENT on destabilizing Syria completely and overthrowing Assad. Only when Russia arrived in defense of Syria did it impede this Zionist agenda to derail Assad's government.

Regardless, I'm sure this all has to do with profits in some form. Pipelines, land, natural resources, potential strategic military outpost locations, etc. Typically all things revolving wars/geo-politics/social upheavals all comes back to economic issues. Global capitalism to global communism, doesn't really matter, the world today revolves around central banks and their kikery (one form of it or another).

Bad! Germany Legalizes Sharia Law, Child Rape Reader 12/30/2018 (Sun) 10:14:14 Id: bc324f [Preview] No. 13503 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The German Federal Supreme Court has ruled that immigrants can legally marry children if they follow Sharia Law.

The ruling comes from a controversial case involving a Syrian man who was separated from his underage “wife” when he arrived with her in Germany as asylum seekers in August 2015.

Breitbart.com reports: https://archive.fo/2Gk4H

The pair, cousins, were married in February 2015 while the man was aged 21 and the girl aged only 14 in a marriage procedure that was done under sharia legally in Syria but was considered invalid by German authorities where the marriage age was 16 at the time.

After his “wife” had been taken into separate care due to her status as a minor, the Syrian man complained to German courts which initially granted him weekend access to her with a district court claiming the marriage had not been forced.

The case was then sent up to the Federal Supreme Court which has now ruled that the marriage between the pair should be examined on the basis of its legal status in Syria. Such cases in the future should be looked at on an individual basis, the court said, instead of a blanket refusal to recognise them — as was the procedure previously.

In Germany, protection of marriage and family are enshrined in the Basic Law, as well as the principle of equal treatment, and both could be violated under the ban on child marriages.

Since the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, Germany has seen a huge surge in the number of child marriage cases with at least 1,000 cases being known as far back as 2016.

Germany passed a law to raise the marriage age to 18 last year to combat child marriages but the new ruling could be a blow to the legislation.

So the goal of this is clearly two-fold. Legalize pedophilia on a case by case basis, but only for Muslims. Bringing about more Muslim populations since the youngest child on record to give birth was the age of five in Peruvia ("Lina Marcela Medina de Jurado"). Simultaneously they'll continue pushing miscegenation propaganda to eliminate the native German population.

Facebook Now Banning Industrial Hemp Pages After Trump Legalized It Nationwide Reader 12/30/2018 (Sun) 09:14:45 Id: d663a4 [Preview] No. 13502 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Facebook has begun banning hemp pages just days after President Trump signed the Farm Bill, legalizing hemp nationwide.

Just one month after Trump signed the historic bill, Facebook has begun an aggressive campaign on behalf of Big Pharma to eliminate all pages related to hemp.

Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: https://archive.fo/VcVom

Just as the farm bill was passed by the House and Senate earlier this month, the page for hemp grower “Franny’s Farmacy” was banned.

“We had that up for about the first month, got a few thousand followers, it was great, it was really driving sales, then it disappeared,” co-owner Franny Tacy said.

The reason Facebook gave them for banning their hemp page was utterly bogus too. The social media giant claimed that Franny was “Promoting the sale of prescription pharmaceuticals.”

“Being an ex-pharmaceutical rep, there is no way we posted anything that violates Facebook’s terms of service,” Tacy said to Carolina Cannabis News. “We make no claims, we make no recommendations … but we do use the words hemp and CBD and those seem to be becoming trigger words as well.”

Anti-Globalist Protests Spread to Middle East & Asia Reader 12/29/2018 (Sat) 21:15:59 Id: 7628e2 [Preview] No. 13495 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The anti-globalist movement is continuing its spread worldwide, with thousands of citizens in Taiwan and Lebanon rising up against their governments’ push for globalism.

Inspired by the revolution that started in France last month, the movement has spread across the globe, with demonstrators in Asia and the Middle East calling for an end to the New World Order’s push for globalism.

In Lebanon, huge crowds of protesters descended on the capital on Sunday, marching through the streets shouting “Revolution, revolution!” and “down with the Government!”

“We demand respect for our rights. Where is the medicine? People are dying at the doors of hospitals. The government has been inactive for years; what do we need such a government for? Let them resign!” a protester told Sputnik.

“Seven months ago we elected a parliament that hasn’t yet been able to form a coalition government. This means the parliament simply doesn’t perform its functions, it has failed,” the demonstrator said.

In Taiwan, thousands of citizens donned yellow vests on Thursday to protest outside the Ministry of Finance, the architect of Taiwan’s tax system, after feeling inspired by the unrest in Europe.

According to the LA Times, their campaign is the first major one in Asia inspired by the French revolution.

Latimes.com reports: https://archive.fo/jE6Zo

About 20,000 Taiwanese participated in demonstrations last week outside the presidential office, and about half that number protested in the capital of Taipei on Saturday, according to organizers and local media reports. The protests have all been peaceful.

It's spreading, and what's more, this is the working class. Much better than spoiled Commie Antifa trustfund babies.

Agreed. There is only so much grief the working class will take before they take to the streets and demand reforms but look out for the planted opposition to work overdrive the next few years to try to calm dissent and get people to continue trusting their corrupted economic systems/corrupted institutions. And the commies will surely take advantage of their grief as well by calling for more "socialism" or what they perceive "socialism" to be (which will end up being more of the same: more wealth re-distribution at the expense of workers/taxpayers). In reality we have hijacked economies gone crooked by central banking kikes and as long as they continue to remain in power, workers/taxpayers will continue to suffer at the expense of their monopoly on circulating fiat currencies. Whoever controls the issuance of currency also controls the government, controls the economy, controls the people and has infinite power to dictate policies and influence officials. If people truly want sovereignty, economic independence and beneficial fiscal policies they must have these central bankers shut down and RICO'd or kicked out of their countries or nothing changes in the long run.

As Warned Before, High-Tax State Exodus As Americans Flee Fiscal Insolvency Reader 12/29/2018 (Sat) 21:13:55 Id: 90b7bd [Preview] No. 13494 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

U.S. population growth fell to an 80-year low last year amid declining birth rates, a new Census report shows. But it’s also telling that some states are booming while others are suffering a European-style sclerosis of population loss and slow economic growth.

One side effect of a strengthening national economy has been a widening disparity in state growth rates. The eight fastest-growing states by population last year were located in the West or South (Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Florida, Washington, Colorado and Texas).

And what do you know? These states have also experienced rapid employment and GDP growth spurred by low tax rates and policies generally friendly to business and job creation. Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Washington, Utah, Florida and Colorado ranked among the eight states with the fastest job growth this past year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Nevada, Texas, Washington and Florida have no income tax.

Florida recorded the highest level of net domestic migration last year and has gained 1.2 million people from other states since 2010. Many Florida transplants are retirees and tax refugees from the Northeast, but businesses of all sorts are also recruiting young workers from other states to serve the state’s booming population that has reached 21.3 million.

Then there’s California. Despite its balmy weather and thriving tech industry, the Golden State last year lost more people to other states than it gained from foreign immigration. Since 2010, a net 710,000 people have left California for other states. One reason is high housing prices, fueled by onerous land and zoning regulations, which have driven out thousands of middle-income families.


Bad! China Teams with Russia to Build Own HAARP Weather Modification System Reader 12/29/2018 (Sat) 21:09:28 Id: 7a18f2 [Preview] No. 13493 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
China and Russia are working together to create something similar to the officially-released purpose of the American High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). Five experiments launched in June with the purpose of modifying the ionosphere above the Earth for both communication and military purposes. They were able to modify a zone more than 310 mile above a small Russian town in Eastern Europe called Vasilsursk, according to Chinese media. During the modification, the small town experienced an electric spike, which carried 10 times more negatively-charged subatomic particles than other regions.

A second experiment heated that portion of the atmosphere – a portion roughly half the size of Great Britain – more than 200 degrees Fahrenheit, due to particle flux. Those particles were shot into the ionosphere from a Soviet-Era atmospheric heating station in the small town called Sura. It was also utilized during the Cold War. This was done by an array of high-power antennae designed to spike the higher levels of the atmosphere with a large amount of microwave radiation. According to the Chinese report, the peak power of these waves was 260 megawatts, which is enough juice to light a small city.

China, which does not make a habit of working on new technology and military projects with other foreign powers, declared the results of the experiment were “satisfactory.” Measurements of it were taken by an orbiting Chinese electromagnetic surveillance satellite called Zhangheng-1. It was able to switch to a “burst mode” to collect data samples every half-second. This was to ensure the data had a high resolution.

While this experiment has raised a lot of controversy, the facility from which it was launched was built in 1981 for this expressed purpose. Control of the ionosphere and for clandestine communications and detection of things ranging from submarines to natural resources, according to a Popular Mechanics article, which called the Chinese chase for a HAARP of their own a chase for weapons instead of science.

High-energy microwaves, such as those recently discharged by Russia and China in Russia allow the controller to manipulate communications. The Soviets used it to enhance submarine communication, the Americans were accused of using it for everything from manufactured earthquakes and tsunamis to weather manipulation – but these claims have been heavily disputed by official sources as “conspiracy theories.” In reality, they can penetrate ground or water as deep as 328 feet and even disrupt satellite communication.

HAARP was likely built by the Americans for the purpose of submarine and satellite communications when it was constructed in the 1990s in Alaska. It was able to produce about one gigawatt of power, which is four times more than the Sura experiment in June.

Not to be outdone, however, China is building its own – and much bigger – facility in Sanya inside the Hainan Province. Critics of this believe such a facility will be disruptive to international air travel from China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and other nations flying over that city.
