25 July 2020 – 30,000 “members”- Pedophiles – that’s a town of criminals !!

Here’s a comprehensive article that, once read, altogether,

Germany Uncovers Massive Pedophile Ring With 30,000 Members

The German state of North Rhine Westphalia has uncovered an enormous pedophile ring of at least 30,000 pedophiles who share child pornography and exchange advice regarding how to drug and rape babies and young children.

The German state of North Rhine Westphalia has uncovered an enormous pedophile ring of at least 30,000 pedophiles who share child pornography and exchange advice regarding how to drug and rape babies and young children.

Officials from the North-Rhine Westphalia cyber crime unit said on Monday it had uncovered the pedophile ring after a nine month cyber crime investigation.

I hadn’t reckoned with the extent of child abuse on the internet,” said state Justice Minister Peter Beisenbach.

They get instructions from other users on what sedatives one should give children in order to abuse them. A discussion ensues on which children can be abused.’

Mr Beisenbach said he was deeply shocked and appalled at the depravity that has been uncovered.

I felt sick when I heard it but it has also made us more determined to pursue this inquiry,’’ he said. “I fear it is going to be more than 30,000 suspects.”

Pedophilia is entrenched in “high society around the world and there is “proof” that elite pedophiles are sex trafficking children for their deranged pleasure, says Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger, who has urged the world to wake up to the “horrible reality.”

The phenomenon of elite pedophilia is systematic and entrenched, according to Larry Sanger, who warned “many of the Beautiful People know about child sex trafficking by elites” before adding “some participate in it, and… the media and courts cover it up.

Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia, coining the name and writing much of its original governing policy, has now turned his formidable attention to the scourge of elite pedophilia, saying “This is not a joke and it’s real.

Sanger authored a deep dive Twitter thread on the topic, linking various household-name perpetrators with some lesser-known, though no less disturbing, revelations and cover-ups from recent history, in an attempt to awaken the masses to what he describes as the “reality and horror” of child sex trafficking by elites.

Sadly this happens over…and over…and over.”

Sanger’s deep dive into the depraved world of elite child rapists and their enablers continues below, with instructions on how to educate your friends about the scourge:

“Begin with Jeffrey Epstein. His circle of friends features some of the most famous people in the world. People like Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, even Donald Trump. Look up the “Lolita Express” flight log and his black book. Quite a stunning social circle, really.

“He was arrested (twice) because he was a pedophile who abused many teen girls. He had an island in the Caribbean in which this took place, which, by all credible accounts, was visited by many of his famous friends.

“There is courtroom evidence that Epstein’s friends sexually abused the teen girls he collected, who as young as 12 were basically sex slaves.

“But I’m just scratching the surface, here. There are hair-curling claims about a “temple” on his island and rites performed in the hill underneath it. You don’t have to believe that, to be shocked by Epstein’s circle. But the occult connections keeps recurring, disturbingly.

“This is what you’ve heard and (if you’re like most people) probably already forgotten about. But we are not even close to being done. Did you know that ABC News had this story in 2016, and covered it up? They did. Everyone knows that, too, but few are talking about it.

“Did you know that it was covered up in a different way last 2008, when Epstein was sentenced to a mere slap on the wrist? Why on earth, in the name of all that is holy? “Because he’s so powerful and has powerful friends to protect,” you say.

“Right. Think about that. Hard. More of the story came out last summer. But no one else has been jailed, not even Epstein’s chief accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, whose location is unknown. Few in the scandal-crazed media….seem to care much. That’s weird, isn’t it?

“We the people would learn much more about the suspects and allegations if more court documents were unsealed. But massive numbers of Epstein case documents have been sealed. The court system is protecting the guilty—again, as they did in 2008. They do that a lot, turns out.

“Now, think. This doesn’t take evidence, it takes a little bit of brave thinking. What must our beloved and distinguished world of famous, rich, and powerful people be like, if Epstein’s friends (THOSE people!) are violating teen sex slaves—and the courts *protect* them?

“It sure sounds like (a) many of the Beautiful People know about child sex trafficking by elites, (b) some participate in it, and (c) the media and courts cover it up. “But…systematically? Do they really? Surely not,” you say. Sadly this happens over…and over…and over.

“Look these up: NOTE: separate tweet below for each! The Catholic Church, Pedowood, underage groupies, Jimmy Savile, Rotherham, CPS disappearances, the Kinsey Institute, John of God, NXIVM, the Finders, Marc Dutroux, Laura Silsby…

“The Catholic Church has had massive numbers of pedophiles. They never go away. Why not? Why don’t the police move in on them? Why has it gone on for *generations*? And there’s evidence it’s condoned, yes, condoned and organized, within the Church.

“Hollywood has had *so so* many pedophile scandals, it’s nauseating. Look into the Digital Entertainment Network (watch the documentary), Roman Polanski, and Dan Schneider, testimony by Corey Feldman, Bella Thorne, Isaac Kappy, Macaulay Culkin, Elijah Wood, more. It’s real.





“Let’s take a break from the list to think about an important question. How can these people get away with their crimes? Why can they *still* hide, because indeed most of the perps are walking free? Both the police and the courts must be paid off or part of the networks.

“The music world is full of underage groupies. If people used to excuse this, what were they thinking? Look at David Bowie, Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Jimmy Page, Steven Tyler, etc. Pedophiles. Think this has stopped? What makes it possible? It’s a crime…right?

“The case of Jimmy Savile, famous British comedian, is stunning because he was knighted by the Queen long after rumors began that he systematically raped kids in hospitals…and supplied children to others. Close friend of the royals. Think they didn’t know? Prince Andrew?

“Yes, this is heavy. But, look, it happens all over the world, repeatedly, in “high society.” We just…never put all it together. The media is largely silent. This is surely why NAMBLA and pedophilia have had famous defenders, like poet Allen Ginsberg and some psychologists.

“Why on earth did the authorities allow systematic, horrific abuse of children go on in Rotherham and other places (so many places schools, churches, hospitals, etc.), you can look it up)? They let it happen. Systematically. Deliberately. This is not a joke and it’s real.

“And did you know that children have gone missing, thousands of them, from the Child Protective Service’s foster care system? And no. They’re not all runaways. Some are purchased. The point here is that what should be an earth-shattering scandal is…ignored. Why?

“The Kinsey Institute’s famous early studies were done by scientists working with, among others, known pedophiles—who weren’t reported. Kinsey’s evidence that babies can have orgasms was based on observations that they cried when abused.11210651

John of God basically ran a sex slave camp masquerading as a spiritual revival of some sort. Oprah visited and was delighted with his ministry. But then, she has her own school for girls in South Africa that had its own child rape scandals; so maybe she didn’t care.


Nicolae Carpathia on Twitter: "From John of God to Harvey ...


“Are we done with Establishment connections with pedophilia? No. And this is real stuff you can look up. You just didn’t know. Look up the NXIVM sex slave cult, which did involve kids, and had connections with heiress Clare Bronfman, Catherine Oxenberg, and Alison Mack.

“Now, if famous people, the police, and the courts are involved in this sort of thing—as they’d have to be, to cover up so much for so long—wouldn’t, say, the FBI also be involved? Yep. Look up the Finders. It’s a fascinating and horrifying story.

“Of course, elite pedophiles operate all over the world, not just in the English-speaking world. Take, say, Belgium, home of one of their most infamous criminals, Marc Dutroux—who ran an international pedophile ring, apparently for the elite.



Sabine Dardenne was kidnapped by Marc Dutroux in 1996 at the age of 12 while cycling to school. She was drugged and held for 87 days in a soundproof concrete dungeon in the basement. During her capture he sexually abused her on an almost daily basis. She was given nothing but moldy bread, biscuits and milk to eat. She was eventually found when Dutroux decided to get her a ‘friend’: Laetitia. Luckily Laetitia’s kidnap was witnessed and Belgian police found the two girls six days later Real Monsters, Evil People, Cold Case, Interesting History, Criminal Minds, Serial Killers, True Crime, Along The Way, Basement

Marc Dutroux - the beast from Belgium (Crime / serial killer ...



“Look at the case of Laura Silsby, and now I’m afraid we’re getting into territory that is not just horrifying, it is also controversial, because Silsby is a Hillary Clinton friend. Her Haitian charity, accused of trafficking children.

So Laura Silsby (Today Laura Gayler) who tried to kidnap 33 ...

“Wikileaks is famous partly because of the Clinton-Silsby connection, but also because multiple leaked emails are filled with bizarre phraseology that makes sense if they were organizing child sex abuse.

“The plethora of elite child sex abuse makes that by political operatives more conceivable, doesn’t it? I started taking that stuff more seriously after I learned about Epstein…and the rabbit hole. Look up Denny Hastert and another Clinton associate, Anthony Weiner.

Disturbing Details of Dennis Hastert's Alleged Sex Abuse Revealed ...

“As a philosopher, I deeply studied theories of knowledge, evidence, and justification. My methodological principles have not changed. I am not impressed by inconclusive evidence. Neither are many decent people. They are put off by unjustified judgments of others. Right!

“And we *are* talking about horrific crimes, and justice, here. The stakes are high. It is as important as anything that we be quite sure of our conclusions, so justice is done. I and most people care a lot about that and don’t want to play fast and loose with reputations.

24 July 2020 – Fraud – Voter fraud is election tampering – Voter Fraud documented is RAMPANT and HAVE stolen elections in California, Florida, Indiana and NC via absentee ballots

As an immigrant from the USSR, I am so mad that voter fraud is being called false when that is clearly a LIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The next time someone tell you that voter fraud is not real, refer to this article below:

Stolen Elections Show the Vulnerabilities of Absentee Ballots

Jul 24th, 2020

Hans von Spakovsky is an authority on a wide range of issues – including civil rights, civil justice, the First Amendment, immigration.


Pushing for more absentee balloting—even all-mail elections—is unwise. It would make election fraud far easier.

All states ban electioneering in polling places, but there are no such bans on electioneering in voters’ homes. This leaves at-home voters vulnerable.

There is no reason we can’t vote safely in our polling places in November, rather than hoping that someone else will deliver our ballot in time to be counted.

No question about it: some people need absentee ballots—those with disabilities, those living abroad and others who can’t make it to the polls on Election Day. But pushing for more absentee balloting—even all-mail elections—is unwise. It would make election fraud far easier.

In-person voting occurs under the supervision of election officials, with election observers there to make sure everything is on the up-and-up. This transparency is a vital hallmark of the democratic process. Mail-in ballots, however, are susceptible to being stolen, altered, forged and forced.

All states ban electioneering in polling places, but there are no such bans on electioneering in voters’ homes. This leaves at-home voters vulnerable to intimidation and coercion by campaign staffers, political party activists, and others with a vested interest in the electoral outcome.

Four elections in California, Florida, Indiana, and North Carolina—stolen through absentee-ballot fraud—demonstrate some of the problems.

In 1991, school board elections in Fresno, California, were overturned due to “widespread illegal voting practices that permeated this election—including fraud and tampering” with absentee ballots. A local political organization took over the voter registration and absentee balloting process, completely controlling the application, delivery, completion and return of the absentee ballots of minority voters. Some were pressured to vote for specific candidates. Others had their ballots filled out without their consent or consultation.

>>> A Sampling of Recent Election Fraud Cases from Across the United States

Six years later, a court overturned a Miami mayoral election because of massive fraud involving 5,000 absentee ballots. A city commissioner and his chief of staff were among the 55 defendants convicted of fraud. Some voters were bribed for their absentee ballots. Some somehow managed to submit absentee ballots from the grave, as did others who weren’t even Miami residents. And many poor and elderly voters were coerced or had their ballots stolen and voted for them—effectively disenfranchising them.

In 2004, the Indiana Supreme Court threw out the results of a 2003 mayoral primary in East Chicago because the incumbent mayor and his cronies “perverted the absentee voting process and compromised the integrity and results of that election.” Just as in Fresno and Miami, the fraudsters in East Chicago targeted “first-time voters” and others “less informed or lacking in knowledge of the voting process, the infirm, the poor, and those with limited skills in the English language” for their absentee ballots. The trial judge said this case provided a “textbook” example of the “chicanery that can attend the absentee vote cast by mail.”

Just two years ago, a North Carolina congressional race was overturned by the state election board because of “concerted fraudulent activities related to absentee by-mail ballots.” And the New Jersey attorney general has just charged four people in Paterson with engaging in absentee ballot fraud so pervasive that it has cast doubt on the results of the city’s recent municipal, all-mail election.

This brief review doesn’t even take into account the millions—yes, millions—of absentee ballots that the U.S. Election Assistance Commission reports were either misdelivered by the Postal Service or rejected by election officials after they were returned by voters in the last four federal elections.

Using all the same safety protocols recommended by health experts that are allowing us to go to our grocery stores and pharmacies, there is no reason we can’t vote safely in our polling places in November, rather than hoping that someone else—including the Postal Service—will deliver our ballot in time to be counted.

24 July 2020 – Kids and Covid – (Coronavirus – China Virus – SarsCov2) may develop PIMS (pediatric inflammatory multisystemic syndrome) – update added – enzyme found


First COVID-19, then Kawasaki-like Disease in Children

July 24, 2020

Children with COVID-19 can develop pediatric, inflammatory multisystemic syndrome, or PIMS, which can lead to symptoms similar to that of a painful vasculitis condition called Kawasaki disease. Today we talk with Jagadeesh Bayry, Ph.D., and Caroline Galeotti, M.D., of the University of Paris who recently described in Nature Reviews Rheumatology related pediatric cases they saw in their clinic.


In this week’s news roundup from Rheumatology Network, we begin by highlighting two reports on osteoporosis.

In one, doctors reporting in JAMA say that osteoporosis screening may be necessary for younger postmenopausal womenWe published a Q&A with Dr. Carolyn Crandall of UCLA who discusses the need to conduct osteoporosis screening in this population.

And, we featured a discussion with Dr. Suzanne Jan de Beur of Johns Hopkins University who explains that managing vitamin D levels may not be as straightforward as it would seemThere are factors that should be considered that are not often communicated to patients. We’ve posed an audio version of our discussion with Dr. Jan de Beur on

And, this week we highlight two reports on COVID-19. In one, researchers writing in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases report that high doses of methylprednisolone with tocilizumab if needed, successfully resolved COVID-19 associated cytokine storm syndrome in most treated patients. You can learn more about those findings on

In today’s one-on-one interview, we feature a discussion with Jagadeesh Bayry, Ph.D., and Caroline Galeotti, M.D., of the University of Paris who recently described in Nature Reviews Rheumatology, pediatric cases of COVID-19 that were associated with the development of pediatric inflammatory multisystemic syndrome, or, PIMS in children. Children who developed PIMS exhibited signs of the vasculitis syndrome Kawasaki disease without having the disease itself. The condition eventually resolved in most of their patients. And, while the pandemic is under control in Paris, cases are still rising in most U.S. cities that may begin to see vasculitis symptoms in children described in this report.

“The current COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to many surprises, including the appearance of PIMS, with clinical and biochemical features distinct from that of classical Kawasaki disease and affecting children up to 17 years old. Although only a small proportion of SARS-CoV-2-infected children subsequently develop symptoms of PIMS (or MIS-C), most of them require intense clinical management because of the severity of the disease. As fundamental aspects of PIMS remain largely unknown, future investigations will require close interaction among various disciplines including paediatrics, internal medicine, rheumatology, immunology, genetics, infectiology, cardiology and epidemiology.,” they wrote in the article.

Little Understood Enzyme May Point to Treatment for Kawasaki-Like Inflammatory Disease

Blood vessel inflammation, illustration

The ADA2 gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called adenosine deaminase 2. ADA2’s function has been poorly understood. Previous studies suggest that the enzyme acts as a growth factor. The enzyme also appears to be involved in the growth and development of certain immune system cells including macrophages, which are a type of white blood cell that plays a critical role in inflammation. Now researchers at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) report that ADA2 inhibits inflammation in blood vessels. Their findings offer a potential pathway to treating DADA2, an inflammatory blood vessel disease in children that is similar to Kawasaki disease.

Their study, “Cellular sensing of extracellular purine nucleosides triggers an innate IFN-β response,” is published in Science Advances and led by Sonia Sharma, PhD, associate professor at LJI.

“This is all pretty uncharted because for a long time, this was a very misunderstood enzyme,” explained Sharma. “But we showed that the metabolic activity of this enzyme, ADA2, is very important for restraining the immune system in both vascular cells and immune cells.”

Sharma’s lab is dedicated to uncovering the earliest cellular and molecular origins of inflammation. Her work has led her to focus on stromal cells. “We think the stromal cells’ capacity for sensing early pathogenic threats is likely very important for initially coordinating and developing the magnitude, duration, and quality of the downstream immune response,” said Sharma, “and ultimately determining whether the immune response is protective or pathogenic in nature.”

The researchers observed a group of uncharacterized human disease genes linked to lupus-like autoimmune diseases that all cause multi-organ systemic inflammation or vasculitis. For the new study, the researchers asked if any of the disease-linked genes play a role in how stromal cells respond to threats by initiating an innate immune response.

Their search led them to the enzyme ADA2. “For a long time, ADA2 was ignored—no one thought it did anything,” said Sharma. “What we know now is that both ADA1 and ADA2 play a much more nuanced role in regulating the bio-activity of purine nucleosides, which are powerful signaling molecules for the immune system.”

The researchers showed that ADA2 enzyme activity naturally inhibits the innate immune response by restraining the production of a cytokine called type 1 interferon beta. Although type 1 interferon beta is a protective molecule against viral infections and cancer, overexpression of type 1 interferon beta causes harmful inflammation.

“Mechanisms linking immune sensing of DNA danger signals in the extracellular environment to innate pathways in the cytosol are poorly understood. Here, we identify a previously unidentified immune-metabolic axis by which cells respond to purine nucleosides and trigger a type I interferon-β (IFN-β) response. We find that depletion of ADA2, an ectoenzyme that catabolizes extracellular dAdo to dIno, or supplementation of dAdo or dIno stimulates IFN-β. Under conditions of reduced ADA2 enzyme activity, dAdo is transported into cells and undergoes catabolysis by the cytosolic isoenzyme ADA1, driving intracellular accumulation of dIno,” explained the researchers.

“Loss of ADA2 drives metabolic dysregulation which in turn drives immune dysregulation and inflammation, so what we ended up identifying was new immuno-metabolic axis,” stated Sharma.

A better understanding of ADA2 and purine nucleoside metabolism may lead to new therapies for treating DADA2—a recessive genetic condition, where mutations in the CECR1 gene prevent it from correctly encoding ADA2—and other types of multi-organ systemic inflammation. Sharma believes that targeting the roots of these diseases will likely require a gene therapy approach or bone marrow transplants to reconstitute ADA2 in patients who cannot make the enzyme themselves.

“dIno is a functional immunometabolite that interferes with the cellular methionine cycle by inhibiting SAM synthetase activity. Inhibition of SAM-dependent transmethylation drives epigenomic hypomethylation and overexpression of immune-stimulatory endogenous retroviral elements that engage cytosolic dsRNA sensors and induce IFN-β. We uncovered a previously unknown cellular signaling pathway that responds to extracellular DNA–derived metabolites, coupling nucleoside catabolism by adenosine deaminases to cellular IFN-β production,” noted the researchers.

“I think our study suggests the simplest treatment must be pursued to correct the metabolic dysregulation—we must reconstitute this particular enzyme activity in patients, ultimately,” Sharma stated.

Sharma’s team plans to study ADA2 function in human cells and develop in vivo models of ADA2 deficiency. Sharma sees a connection between ADA2 research and COVID-19 studies.

“We’re studying COVID patients now to see if ADA2 activity or purine nucleosides change,” explained Sharma. The team is studying how the novel coronavirus may infect stromal endothelial cells and other cells involved in stimulating the body’s innate immune response.

They are also hoping to discover how the viral pathogenesis is connected to vascular complications and Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), which has similarities to Kawasaki disease and DADA2.

JULY 24, 2020 Chinese Spy - TangJuan

This is a breaking news story. Please check back for updates as more information becomes available. 

A member of the Chinese military who was posing as a researcher at the University of California – Davis has been taken into U.S. custody on Friday after hiding in a Chinese consulate, Bloomberg reported.

CNN’s Josh Rogin also said the Chinese researcher had left the San Francisco consulate and was arrested by law enforcement, according to a senior Justice Department official.

Axios first reported the Chinese military researcher Tang Juan, a researcher with China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), had been interviewed by the FBI on June 20. Court documents indicated that Tang fled to the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco after the FBI interview and remained there, according to the FBI.

Tang was charged with visa fraud on June 26 but fled before she could be detained.

Tang had told investigators she was not affiliated with the PLA, however, they determined she was active in the Chinese military and working at the PLA’s Air Force Military Medical University (FMMU) in China.

Investigators had uncovered multiple photographs of her in a uniform affiliated with the PLA’s civilian cadre.

23 July 2020 – Mayor participates in international terror campaign- Arrest him!!!!

The Mayor of Portland was participating in a terror campaign against the USA’s government.  They, both ANTIFA and BLM,  are not domestic.  They acknowledge this themselves.  

These aren’t protesters – TERROR campaigns against the government of the USA!

And this idiot thinks that these terrorists are Jews living a normal life when the Nazi’s came for them.

Portland mayor stung by tear gas at protest

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler joined the protests in Oregon’s largest city as demonstrators continued to clash with Department of Homeland Security forces deployed by the Trump administration near the federal courthouse.

It didn’t go well for Wheeler, who was hit by tear gas from the officers and jeered by the protesters. Demonstrators

———–me- WHAT the HELL are they DEMONSTRATING? —- these are terrorists!!!—- 

frustrated with his handling of the city’s police department and his belated show of support for the protests chanted “F*** Ted Wheeler” and called on him to resign. The protests have been occurring since late May following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

“Ted, you’re the mayor. You’re in charge. We’re fighting out here, and you’re not. … We need you to help us or get out of the way,” musician and activist Mac Smiff told Wheeler. “If you don’t, it’s going to be four more years of hell. It’s going to be four more years of this. We’re going to be out here every night.”

As Wheeler was being booed, he was also hit by tear gas.

“I’m not going to lie — it stings; it’s hard to breathe,” Wheeler, a Democrat, told the New York Times. “And I can tell you with 100 percent honesty, I saw nothing which provoked this response.

“A lot of these people hate my guts,” said Wheeler of the crowd, but he noted they were unified in their desire for the federal presence to withdraw, adding, “President Trump needs to focus on coronavirus and get his troops out of the city. My biggest fear is that somebody’s going to die. I want them to leave. This is going to come to a city near you if we don’t stop it.”

Wheeler is not the first local official to be teargassed by federal officers. Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran posted photos after she was among the demonstrators gassed over the weekend. 

——-me — She should be arrested for terrorism and insurrection —- 

“I was there Saturday and Sunday, and the crowd was by and large very peaceful, chanting,” Meieran told Yahoo News. “And then out of the blue there was, the federal forces came out, and without any warning, without any discrimination of targets, just started throwing canisters of tear gas into the street.”Earlier Wednesday, the Portland City Council passed a resolution barring the local police from coordinating with federal law enforcement, whose presence has been repudiated by everyone from city officials and the governor to the state’s congressional delegation and prominent national Democrats.

City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty has been critical of Wheeler’s handling of the police force and has asked control to be transferred to her.

“Though we didn’t bring in the federal people, it is clear the Portland Police Association welcomed their involvement as well as the Portland Police Bureau,” said Hardesty. “And as well as the mayor — because I’ve heard the mayor say he also welcomed their involvement.”

On Wednesday, Hardesty claimed that fires in the area were “police action, and they’re sending saboteurs and provocateurs into peaceful crowds.” She did not provide evidence of these claims and later apologized.

Wheeler has repeatedly called for the federal presence to leave. Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf and others in the Trump administration say the presence is necessary to protect the city’s federal courthouse, criticizing local authorities for not doing their jobs.

The heavily armed federal officers in military camouflage uniforms have provoked outrage for fracturing the skull of one protester with a “less-lethal” projectile last week and for their frequent use of tear gas. Residents say they have witnessed the arrests of civilians who were taken away in unmarked vans, and a New York Times reporter said he was punched in the head by federal officers during Monday night’s demonstration. An attorney who was participating in the “Wall of Moms” protest early Tuesday morning claimed she was not read her rights while being arrested by federal officers. For their part, the protesters have spray-painted the federal courthouse, torn up fencing and set fires in the area.

The crowd’s hostility toward Wheeler comes after the Portland Police Bureau has been criticized for its handling of far-right protests in recent years, as critics say the force generally sides with white supremacist demonstrators over local counterprotesters.

“You have far-right groups coming in from out of town and staging these riots, and the police were, objectively, acting more aggressively toward the community members coming out in protest of these far-right groups than the far-right groups themselves,” Michael German, a former FBI special agent and senior fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice, told the Washington Post.

On Wednesday, Trump announced he would be deploying more federal officers to Democratic-run cities in what the administration is calling “Operation Legend.”

“The effort [from local officials] to shut down policing in their own communities has led to a shocking explosion of shootings, killings, murders and heinous crimes of violence,” Trump said. “This bloodshed must end.”

Two former Republican leaders of DHS have criticized Trump’s use of the agency.

“The department was established to protect America from the ever-present threat of global terrorism. It was not established to be the president’s personal militia,” Tom Ridge, DHS’s inaugural chief, said during an interview with Sirius XM host Michael Smerconish. Michael Chertoff, who succeeded Ridge during George W. Bush’s second term, told the Washington Post that Trump’s plan is “unsettling” and damaging to the department.



ANTIFA and BLM are global organizations.  Therefore, this IS terrorism.  This is NOT DOMESTIC, rather international



Democratic Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden told Yahoo News earlier this week that the troop deployment was a political ploy by Trump.—————me– He is not DEMOCRATIC – he’s tyrannical- but he is a DEMOCRAT —— 

“I guess if you have such a horrible record on dealing with the coronavirus, which is spiking all over the country, you say to yourself I’m not sure we can figure out how to get well there, [so] let’s go out and tell America that the people in these cities aren’t like them, don’t have their values, and they’re either anarchists or they are sympathetic to the anarchists,” said Wyden.

European (ESA), French (CNES), Argentine (CONAE) and Austrian (FFG)

If American companies also associate with these, then how likely is it that there will be technology espionage going on?  In my not humble opinion, it’s guaranteed.

President Trump should immediately investigate associations.  There are tools that he has access to that will make these association easily evident.

China’s Tianwen-1 Mars rover mission gets a boost from international partners

The Long March-5 rocket for China's Tianwen-1 Mars mission was transported to the launch area at China’s Wenchang Space Launch Center on July 17, 2020. Note the logos of the European (ESA), French (CNES), Argentine (CONAE) and Austrian (FFG) space agencies in addition to that of the China National Space Agency (CNSA).

Following the completion of multiple integrated rehearsals, China is ready for the launch of its first fully homegrown Mars mission.

Tianwen-1, which consists of an orbiter, lander and rover, is scheduled to lift off in late July or early August, according to the China National Space Administration (CNSA). Speculation is that the launch is targeted for July 23, the opening of the window.

Last Friday (July 17), the fourth Long March-5 rocket — coded as Long March-5 Y4 — was vertically transported to the launching area at the Wenchang Space Launch Center in south China’s Hainan Province.

China’s bid to explore Mars involves several other nations for tracking, orbital relay of data and science instrument support.

Ready for launch

In a recent interview with China Central Television (CCTV), Tianwen-1 deputy director Zhang Yu said that scientists have conducted joint tests on multiple systems of the Mars mission at all levels and are ready for the launch.

“We have carried out multiple coordinated maneuvers over flight and control together with launching site system, the rocket system and the probe system, which have verified the validity of interfaces between different systems and the flight program, and also indicated that we are capable of conducting the first Mars probe of our country,” said Zhang.

“We formatted an orbit kinetic model that has [the] same orbit with the rover, as well as the corresponding measurement model,” Zhang added. “Then we established the corresponding control algorithm to ensure that the probe lands on the designated location of Mars at the designated time, and can automatically capture information, to ensure it can conduct flight and control [its] mission across Mars.”

Control center

To cope with the challenges ahead, the Beijing Aerospace Control Center set up a Mars exploration flight control team at the start of 2018.

CCTV reported that, despite the coronavirus pandemic this year, the team has been actively adjusting personnel allocation, coordinating the test and control network and mapping out switching schemes for different sites, in order to meet the needs of the Mars probe.

The center will also adopt the new software and hardware of the flight and control system to assure the correct performance of China’s domestically manufactured hardware system.

China’s Mars mission is ambitious, aiming to pull off orbiting, landing and roving — a historic all-in-one mission.

To do so, the country has beefed up its deep-space monitoring network capability to support the Tianwen-1 mission. Once the probe has entered Earth-Mars transfer orbit, the control center’s two monitoring stations, in Kashgar of northwestern Xinjiang’s Uygur Autonomous Region, and Jiamusi, in northeastern Heilongjiang Province, will swing into action.

Tracking support

At the Long March-5 rollout, the booster’s protective payload fairing was seen to be adorned with European (ESA), French (CNES), Argentine (CONAE) and Austrian (FFG) space agency logos, in addition to that of the CNSA.

Tianwen-1 will use ESA’s Estrack communications network, and in several ways.

Estrack’s Kourou ground station, in French Guiana, South America, will follow the mission on departure from China. Extremely precise navigation/trajectory determination, via ESA’s stations in Australia and Spain, will also be provided as Tianwen-1 makes its way to Mars.

Pooling resources

“Successful space travel often means pooling resources, and at ESA we are happy to support the new Martian mission with our Estrack network of antennas as well as with our Mars Express spacecraft, currently in orbit at the Red Planet,” ESA’s Beatriz Arias told

ESA’s Kourou ground station will catch signals from the spacecraft as it separates from the launcher after liftoff, providing information on the probe’s distance and movements and enabling communications.

After liftoff and until Tianwen-1 enters Martian orbit, ESA’s New Norcia (Australia) and Cebreros (Spain) stations will make a total of eight communication linkups with the spacecraft to support a highly precise navigation/trajectory determination technique known as Delta-DOR (short for “Delta-Differential One-way Range”).

Once at the Red Planet, the Mars Express orbiter will provide data relay support, acting as a go-between, alongside the Chinese orbiter, for the data gathered by China’s rover on the Martian surface and ground stations on Earth, ESA officials have said. However, this is backup only, as China’s own orbiter will provide the prime relay service.

Argentina, France, Austria

Argentina’s Comisión Nacional de Actividades Espaciales (CONAE) is thought to be tied to Tianwen-1 by way of a Chinese-run tracking station installed in Las Lajas, Argentina. The facility played a role in China’s landing of the Chang’e-4 spacecraft on the far side of the moon in January 2019.

The Institute for Research in Astrophysics and Planetology (IRAP) in Toulouse, France is collaborating with China on the Tianwen-1 rover.

CNES is the program manager of this collaboration, Sylvestre Maurice of IRAP told

“For their Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) instrument, we have delivered a calibration target that is a French duplicate of a target which is on [NASA’s] Curiosity [Mars rover]. The idea is to see how the two datasets compare,” Maurice said.

Meanwhile, the Austrian space sector, under the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), has been reported to aid in the development of a magnetometer installed on the Chinese Mars orbiter.

The Space Research Institute (Institut für Weltraumforschung, IWF) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Graz has confirmed the group’s contribution to the Tianwen-1 magnetometer and helped with the calibration of the flight instrument, explained Andreas Geisler, head of the FFG Aeronautics and Space Agency.

“The Aeronautics and Space Agency of the Austrian Research Promotion Agency has framed the cooperation on the basis of an agency to agency memorandum of understanding (MoU) with CNSA,” Geisler told

21 July 2020 – Democrat leadership calls the President a threat to the PUBLIC. Is this their move to attempt a coup?

“He’s a threat to public health.”

This is probably the most irresponsible statement that I’ve heard AND should not go ignored.  Schumer is calling for the removal of the PRESIDENT

LIAR – LIES – From the top of the Democrat Party – LYING – Deceit  Schumer says coronavirus stimulus negotiations are at the 2 yard line


Schumer says Trump ‘should not take the podium’ at coronavirus briefings: ‘He’s a threat to public health’

Trump is expected to begin leading coronavirus briefings again

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that President Trump “should not take the podium” at the coronavirus briefings expected to resume later in the day, alleging that he is a “threat to public health.”

The comments came after the president said Monday that he would restart his coronavirus briefings amid a new surge in positive cases of COVID-19 across the nation.


Schumer, D-N.Y., though, told reporters that the president has “created one of the greatest failures” and criticized his handling of the pandemic.

“When the coronavirus briefings resume, President Trump should not take the podium,” Schumer said. “He’s a threat to public health.”

Schumer went on to slam Republican efforts on the next coronavirus stimulus bill, saying they’ve “dithered and delayed.”

“Senate Republicans, led by Sen. McConnell said, ‘Let’s wait a little longer and see how this goes,’” Schumer said. “Like President Trump, they hoped it would go away.”

Meanwhile, the president this week touted his past coronavirus briefings, saying they were “very successful” and that they “had a lot of people watching, a record number of people watching.”


“In the history of cable television there’s never been anything like it,” Trump said Monday. “Frankly, a lot of the country has been doing well, as many people don’t say, as you understand. But we have had this big flare-up in Florida, Texas, other places.”


There is NO flare up – they are lying.  They TESTED and labeled everything COVID.  LIES!!!


He added: “So, I think what we’re going to do is I’ll get involved and we’ll start doing briefings.”

In the early days of the pandemic, the briefings became a near-daily occurrence, often lasting over an hour. But they also proved risky for the president, who at one point took criticism for suggesting that disinfectants might have the potential to treat the coronavirus. This provoked the makers of Lysol to warn against improper use of disinfectant products. Trump said he was being sarcastic.


This is a complete LIE!!! 

He was not saying to use detergent.  He was saying that LIGHT was the disinfectant.  He was making an analogy.  The Democrats are LYING about what he said 



The first new briefing is expected to take place Tuesday at 5 p.m., though this could change.

Trump said that the briefings would be a “great way” to get information out about the status of coronavirus vaccines and therapeutics, while White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany will continue to deliver regular briefings.

Fox News’ Morgan Phillips contributed to this report. 



20 July 2020 – The media and pornography – George Stephanopoulos and wife should be in jail for child abuse, yet he still works for a media company that enters YOUR brain

This is the WIFE of George Stephanopoulos.

At Home With Ali Wentworth & George Stephanopoulos Funniest Mom Alive!

How do you do this to your own children?


Ali Wentworth: I would look at porn with my kids

Ali Wentworth says she “would watch porn” with her teenage daughters in order to teach them about sex.

The 55-year-old actress and comedian has daughters Elliott, 17, and Harper, 15, with her husband George Stephanopoulos, and has admitted she would be happy to sit down and watch adult content with her kids, so she can show them that pornography is “performative” rather than realistic.

She said: “In porn, women have been conditioned to look and act a certain way. They are performing and it’s dangerous to have boys see this as something women want. You can’t stop them, so I would watch it with them. I would look at the porn with them that one time, like, ‘They’re performing.’ ”

The ‘Nightcap’ star also said she looks at social media posts with her daughters and offers them some perspective.

She added during an appearance on the ‘Dissenters’ podcast: “I say, ‘Do you see this girl? There is a hole she is trying to fill.’ … I use humor to try to converse with them and say things like, ‘Did you drop out of school today. Did you get married today?’ ”

Meanwhile, Ali is known to be open about her sex life with her husband George – whom she married in 2001 – and previously explained in her 2018 memoir that the pair still frequently have sex.

She wrote in ‘Go Ask Ali: Half-Baked Advice (and Free Lemonade)’: “The lowest moment for me is when the time arrives for the fateful question: ‘How often do you and your husband have sex?’ I have lost friends with this question. The women gasp and scream like I’ve confessed that I shot my dog. One of them always slams her first down on the table; a woman’s wine glass once smashed in her hand. I’m sorry! We’re hot for each other. Jesus!”

20 July 2020- ASSANGE is a prisoner but MUELLER is free? And Manning pardoned? And that traitor Bergdahl… All free men


World Learns Assange Fathered Two Children Inside Ecuadorian Embassy

Assange Leaks Publishes WikiLeaks Internal Communications


The leaktivist website Distributed Denial Of Secrets, has released new documents on WikiLeaks claiming to be in its founder Julian Assange’s defense. However, the founder of DDOS Emma Best’s personal past tweets paints a much different picture.

DDOS released a collection of files related to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange which have been nicknamed Assange Leaks.

The documents include chat logs between Assange and other associates and in its founder’s words, the files are “not meant to “expose” WikiLeaks, but the government’s flawed case by publishing the documents cited in the superseding indictment and ones providing direct context.”

“With the Justice Department’s superseding indictment against Assange, public access to the evidence becomes critical,” a statement on the AssangeLeaks’ website states. “The documents in this file illuminate that case and illustrate how WikiLeaks operates behind closed doors.”

The site stresses that it is neither “for or against Julian Assange or WikiLeaks, and is only interested in the evidence.”

The 18 charges unveiled last year alleged that Assange worked with former Army Intelligence Analyst Chelsea Manning in 2010 to obtain and disclose sensitive “national defense information” through conspiring to crack a password tied to a Department of Defense computer.

WikiLeaks has published thousands of pages of material obtained from Manning, including details around Guantanamo Bay detainees and combat guidelines concerning the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan known as the war diaries.

If convicted, Assange faces a maximum of 10 years in prison for each of the existing 18 charges brought against him except for alleged conspiracy to commit computer intrusion, which contains language from the Espionage Act. Assange faces a total of 175 years in jail if extradited to the U.S. with a total of 18 charges.

U.S. lawyers have falsely claimed that Assange’s publishing of the Iraq and Afghanistan war diaries endangered lives, a claim that is debunked by the Pentagon’s own admission that there is no evidence that any of WikiLeaks’ actions have caused even a single death,as Glenn Greenwald previously reported for Salon during the court trial of whistleblower Chelsea Manning.

In fact, it was Assange who went to “extreme measures” redacting names and information. According to multi-award winning Australian journalist Mark Davis, it was the Guardian journalists who appeared to care little about redacting names, as a Consortium News video explains. Davis had documented the entire process of the release of the Iraq and Afghanistan war logs in a film called Inside Wikileaks, which showed the former Wikileaks editor-in-chief working alongside journalists from the New York Times, the Guardian, and Der Spiegel.

Assange even attempted to contact the U.S. State Department and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warning about the leak of un-redacted documents on other websites, Assange’s lawyers have said.

A recent superseding indictment, handed down by a secret federal grand jury in Alexandria, Va., did not add any charges to the existing 18 charges brought against Assange last year but alleged that Assange and WikiLeaks actively recruited hackers to provide WikiLeaks with documents.

Assange is alleged to have provided the leader of the hacking group “LulzSec” and FBI informant Sabu or Hector Monsegur with a list of groups to target in 2012, in order to obtain information to post to the WikiLeaks platform, and that such information was revealed in chat logs.

Best states on her Twiter that her purpose was to provide context to that situation.

However, Best’s motives can’t be farther from the truth as she has a clear bias and desire to destroy WikiLeaks to replace the international leaking organization with DDOS. This is due to WikiLeaks refusing to give her a job according to insider knowledge of the situation.

Best previously denied this, in an interview with The Daily Dot. Julian Assange’s Twitter account also accused Best of releasing the chat logs in retaliation for WikiLeaks refusing to hire her.

This vengeful drive against WikiLeaks is displayed in a number of ways in her past. This isn’t the first time that Emma Best has leaked documents on Assange. In fact, she originally leaked 11,000 internal communications then leaked another 100,000+ documents. Best even released a video of Sigurdur Thordarson, a convicted fraud and child predator, who was messaging Hector “Sabu” Monsegur and Anonymous alleged hacker Jeremy Hammond.

In the video posted by the anti-Wikileaks journalist Emma Best, the founder of DDoSecrets, shows Assange was only merely in the room while the true culprit – a former WikiLeaks employee Sigurdur “Siggi” Thordarson – talked in IRC with Sabu. Thordarson was also a turned FBI informant at the time, as Rolling Stone previously reported.

In other words, Siggi an FBI informant was messaging Sabu an FBI informant about hacking Iceland for WikiLeaks.

It’s not known if there were other exchanges not recorded on video, but as Yahoo News wrote at the time, the leaked chat logs may be apart of the DOJ’s case against Assange. In the last superseding indictment the DOJ revealed that those chat logs were apart of the historic case.

Although there is no solid proof provided in the chat logs. As Yahoo News reported, it does not include any direct communication from the WikiLeaks founder, but only a supposed alias.

However, in the blog post, she released the video with, Best writes, “WikiLeaks continues to promote a story accusing Robert Mueller of having attempted “to frame WikiLeaks [and], Assange.” A review of interviews with participants, video footage, sealed files, and other documents show that the FBI had not been in the process of “framing” WikiLeaks but was following a trail of evidence that posed a significant threat to the organization and its leadership.”

Yet she claims in a post on Twitter that she released the recent Assange Leaks to exonerate Assange and prove the government’s narrative to be a setup. Although, her posts on Twitter over the years and her blog seem to indicate that’s not her motive at all. Deeper digging into Best’s past highlights her hatred of WikiLeaks. Best even leaked 11,000 private Twitter direct messages with WikiLeaks spinning the messages against Assange calling him a racist, transphobe, and far-right highlighting that Assange said he wanted Trump to win against Hillary.

After Best published the WikiLeaks chats, the publisher’s founder Julian Assange revealed Best’s name assigned at birth (what trans people refer to as their “deadname”) tweeting out “Michael Best”. After doing so, Twitter temporarily suspended Assange’s account until he deleted the tweet, Hornet reported.

Best further leaked 100,000 documents of internal chat logs on WikiLeaks in 2018. According to Yahoo, these documents were the same that were in the possession of the DOJ. How she got them remains a mystery. That’s not all Best also leaked confidential communications with Assange’s lawyers. All of this evidence highlights that Best has been trying to undermine WikiLeaks and Assange’s defense.

Best also went as far as promoting the narrative previously that Assange and WikiLeaks had sought out hackers to hack for them tweeting an article by the BBC quoting a passage and calling it an “accurate take on WikiLeaks and Assange.”

Babies now on board in Julian Assange’s mammoth US extradition tussle

Geoffrey Robertson

Human rights barrister and author

There was one piece of happy news on a doleful Easter day in Britain: Julian Assange had managed to father two children whilst locked up in the Ecuadorian embassy. This proves that love will find a way, even if your self-isolation is being enforced by the British police and the CIA.

It drew attention to the plight of this Australian publisher, who faces charges in America carrying a maximum of 175 years’ imprisonment, all for revealing, back in 2010, truthful facts of considerable public interest.

He now languishes, probably for several years, in Belmarsh, Britain’s toughest (and mainly for terrorist suspects) prison while he fights the US attempt to extradite him for trial in Maryland. If convicted there, on essentially the same espionage act charges which brought his source, Chelsea Manning, a 35-year sentence, he can expect a somewhat heavier term – 50 years, perhaps – time enough for him to die in an American ‘Supermax’ jail. Manning was pardoned by US president Barack Obama, but there is little prospect that Assange would receive clemency from a second-term President Trump.

His defence is, principally, that the extradition proceedings are brought for political purposes, to deter other publishers from revealing what US forces do, even illegally – and what US diplomats know (but the media does not) about human rights abuses. This argument will be developed later in the year at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

Now he is revealed as the father of two children born in Britain with a woman he will shortly marry, he can add the right to family life (an aspect of the right to privacy) to the objection to his forceful removal. He already has evidence that the CIA secretly live-streamed his meetings with his lawyers, in breach of the rules of legal confidentiality and of European privacy laws, and his fiancee avers that one of the embassy guards confessed to her (because he found it so disgusting) that he had been tasked to steal her baby’s nappies so the poo could be analysed to check whether Assange was the father.

Assange fathered two children while in embassy

Julian Assange fathered two children with a lawyer who was representing him while he was holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London fighting extradition.

Another objection is the way in which the US is breaching its own much-touted right to free speech and is discriminating against Assange because he is Australian and not American. It is inhibited by the First Amendment to the US constitution from prosecuting US publishers (like The New York Times, which disseminated the Wikileaks revelations) but the Trump lawyers now argue that this clause only protects publishers who are American citizens.

That makes all Australian investigative journalists, and those from other countries, whether or not they work for US media, vulnerable to extradition if they publish military or diplomatic secrets. We actually have an illustrious tradition of journalists who have exposed military misbehaviour – beginning, let us remember, with Keith Murdoch during World War I. One of our finest, the late Phil Knightly (author of Truth – The First Casualty) stood bail for Assange. When it was ordered to be forfeited, he said it was money well spent.

The most immediate danger to Assange, with his chronic lung condition, is coronavirus. Prisons are hotbeds and have already had eight deaths so thousands of non-violent offenders are being released on parole to avoid their exposure. But parole is not on offer for Assange. His 50-week sentence for breaching it by seeking asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy is now over and last month he made an application, offering to put himself under house arrest (well, mansion house arrest) in the country, with ankle restraints and electronic monitors and an array of restrictions that would have made it impossible for him to flee anywhere. His application was brusquely rejected.

The case concerns extradition arrangements with the UK which favour the US. When the boot is on the other foot, however, they refuse to play fair – or to play at all. The UK recently sent them an extradition request for the wife of a CIA operative at an airbase in England who had killed a young man named Harry Dunn by driving on the wrong side of the road. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had already arranged to fly her out of the UK, described this request as “abusive” and refused to accept it. It strikes many as abusive that the US operates such double standards – expecting cooperation from allies but refusing their requests to deliver up Americans for trial for serious crimes.

If Assange fails in his court challenges, it will be the British government that has the final say on whether to extradite him. Had Jeremy Corbyn won the last election his extradition would have been refused. Now British PM Boris Johnson will be the final decision-maker – in 2023 or thereabouts. Like Assange, he was himself a publisher (editor of The Spectator) and a prolific journalist. Although he did not expose secrets – he is best remembered in the profession for making them up – it remains to be seen whether he has any residual sympathy for a fellow troublemaker.
