- Taliban fighters have taken over the Afghanistan after a stunning blitz across the country that saw them seize most of the country in just over a week. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has also fled abroad, leaving the government in collapse, while demoralized Afghan security forces offered no resistance. The lightning sweep comes after the U.S. spent nearly 2,500 American lives (and some 150,000 Afghan lives) trying to ensure the territory would not become a terrorist haven while attempting to refashion the nation into a pro-Western democracy.
- Backdrop: Towards the end of his presidency, former President Donald Trump announced that U.S. troops would leave Afghanistan by 2021 provided the Taliban met the terms of a peace accord signed the previous year. President Biden went along with the plan, announcing in April that all U.S. forces would leave Afghanistan by Sept. 11, but the news prompted the Taliban to launch an offensive to regain much of the country. That month, the group took control of 73 districts of 421 nationwide, and by August, insurgents controlled 222 and conquered the largest cities and strongholds over the past week.
- Quote: "We've seen that force [Afghan military] has been unable to defend the country, and that has happened more quickly than we anticipated," Secretary of State Antony Blinken told CNN's State of the Union. "This is manifestly not Saigon," he added. "We went to Afghanistan 20 years ago with one mission, and that mission was to deal with the folks who attacked us on 9/11. And we succeeded in that mission."
- What the markets are feeling: Military conflict or attacks generally don't have much impact on stocks, and even if they do, the sentiment is usually short-lived. That's especially the case here, where the war lasted two decades and the pullout was highly publicized. If anything, some are looking at the economic impacts of the long-running conflict, which has cost the U.S. taxpayer an estimated $2.26T.
- What to watch next: The U.S. has begun moving personnel from its embassy compound in Afghanistan to the airport in Kabul, where the American "core diplomatic presence" will now be headquartered. Ahead of the departure, the State Department instructed staff at the embassy to eliminate sensitive material, with officials racing to destroy military equipment and hard drives containing classified information. United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL) has also started rerouting its India flights to avoid Afghanistan airspace, while Emirates has suspended Kabul flights. While many are weighing in over whether America's longest war was worth it - as well as the pace of the withdrawal or future threats - that debate will continue for some time and maybe one for the history books.
When the CDC changed their guidance in May to say that vaccinated individuals no longer needed masks, many in the general public thought that it signaled the end of the pandemic. The majority of politicians quickly dropped most COVID-related restrictions, because, as many of us had been saying for a year, masks were the visible reminder that the country “was in the middle of a pandemic.” As we’ve seen afterwards, that was, unfortunately, wildly incorrect.
Testing, inescapable media panic, and the incompetence of public health officials results in an unending pandemic, under current definitions. The CDC’s devotion to pseudoscience and the organization’s apparent predisposition to irrational fear, impossibly poor risk analysis, and their recent expressions of doubt on the long-term efficacy of the vaccines have made it abundantly clear that they have no end game for COVID.
Their decision to return to recommending mask mandates for all, the death of science, as it were, has been followed by many corporations, cities and several states. And there is no vaccine on the horizon to provide an easy way out. What possible justification can there be for them to revert back to their guidance on vaccinated masking? They’ve now downplayed the efficacy of the vaccines they’ve relentlessly pushed, and refuse to acknowledge the reality that COVID cases will always exist, especially with how hard we look for them. What is the end game?
While we have no way to predict how far down the anti-science rabbit hole the CDC will continue to sink, we can look at how their guidance, their recommendation to wear masks is faring in a number of areas in the US and beyond that have followed their evidence-free advice.
One of the greatest gifts the CDC unwittingly gave us with their habitual flip flopping is the opportunity to compare areas with and without mask mandates. They provided us the ability to have some semblance of a “control” group, which is obviously quite valuable when examining the possible impact of masks. With many governors or local politicians reluctant to return to mask mandates, the True Believers in The Science™ have created an easy comparison point.
One such state is Louisiana, where Governor John Bell Edwards, a True Believer, mandated masks again out of desperation at his state’s rising case rate. Nearby, Arkansas and Mississippi did not mandate masks, despite Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson’s best efforts.
Unsurprisingly, they’ve followed the same trends regardless:
In fact, case growth in Arkansas appears to have slowed earlier and might be reaching a plateau.
The complete context of cases in these three states clearly showcases the futility of masks and their associated policies, does it not? They’ve had nearly identical curves for the entirety of the pandemic, regardless of mask policy or timing. Cases go up and down at identical intervals, despite the states removing their mandates at wildly different times.
It’s the same story that plays out everywhere. Masks go in, masks go off, cases rise and fall regardless, government, experts and media ignore it.
In late July, just a few days after the CDC’s dramatic reversal, Governor Steve Sisolak of Nevada mandated that 12 counties, comprising most of the population of the state, return to mask wearing.
Let’s see how it went!
Cases continued to rise and remained at much higher population adjusted levels than the small counties without mandates.
It’s a consistently astonishing phenomenon that politicians have convinced themselves that something that’s already failed to prevent the most substantial wave of infections will somehow work this time.
It does not work. Anywhere. Ever.
Unsurprisingly, given that the current wave is disproportionately affecting the South, Georgia’s seen a significant increase in cases recently too.
Equally unsurprising is that a few major cities in the state have responded by mandating masks, while the rest of the state hasn’t followed suit.
Naturally Atlanta mandated masks just a day after the CDC’s new guidance:
And in a truly shocking turn of events, it did not stop cases from rapidly rising.
But they weren’t the only ones, Savannah and Athens also caved to desperation and mandated masks…
…with the same complete lack of success compared to the rest of Georgia’s counties.
It will come as no surprise that a number of counties in California have mandated masks; few states are as committed to pseudoscience as the Golden State.
But, not to be outdone, the state capital in Sacramento mandated masks in late July as well:
It did not work. And, three weeks later, hospitalizations have continued to increase as well:
It’s remarkable how committed the groupthink is to continued failure due to cowardice, fear and desperation to avoid media criticism.
And then there’s Hawaii.
Hawaii never removed their mask mandate, the only state to keep a mask requirement for everyone, regardless of their vaccination status. They’ve had overwhelming compliance throughout the pandemic, and are rapidly approaching a year and a half of consistent mask wearing rules.
Yet cases have reached new highs:
It’s not just cases, hospitalizations are well above previous peaks too:
The more masks fail, the more we need them.
The mask failure isn’t just limited to the United States either. Other countries and areas are experiencing the same thing. Most importantly, Israel, where masks, previously credited with lowering the curve, were brought back after only nine days:
Despite the aggressive push for N95 masks by some experts, German states with N95 mandates have fared no better than those without a requirement for the supposedly more effective masks:
More importantly though, Saxony became the first German state to remove their mask mandate on July 13th. This creates a compelling comparison point to Bavaria and Berlin, with regards to their N95 mandates. So what’s happened?
Saxony’s doing BETTER. Not just the same, better. Two states requiring N95’s, one state not requiring masks at all, and not only has it not made a difference, the N95’s are doing worse.
Failure. Constant, unending failure. Everywhere you look.
Meanwhile, in Japan, pandemic records are falling nearly every day, as their outbreak continues to worsen:
Over 25,000 cases were reported on August 19th, a rate of 200 per million, despite much lower testing rates than in the US. For context, 200 per million is roughly equivalent to the rate of new cases in places like Spain or South Africa, higher than current rate of Denmark, Mexico, Brazil, and double that of Sweden. Many mask proponents will admit that Japan has been unable to prevent outbreaks with universal masking, but defend their results by referencing that their population adjusted rates are low. That argument is no longer valid.
Japan was the media darling due to their mask usage, their “mask culture,” their willingness to comply — and it’s all come crashing down.
Speaking of Denmark, they removed the last of their mask requirements recently, after previously removing the mandate in indoor environments in June.
Cases dropped for several weeks afterwards, before rising again in July, although to levels far below those seen in the UK or other European countries.
The push for masking, as always, boils down to a combination of incompetence, cowardice, fear, and political pressure.
Experts enjoy the ability to be seen as “doing something,” and must never appear to be “anti-mask,” since it would immediately discredit them in the eyes of their peers, the greater scientific community and their ideological compatriots.
Politicians want the “get out of jail free” card that masking provides; the opportunity to blame others for poor results. The “it would have worked if you’d all just listened to me” line of defense. The media simply outsources all critical thinking to like-minded ideologues and refuses to acknowledge or take seriously the few brave experts willing to tell the truth.
And as a result, corporations, whose decision makers are exclusively influenced by the same media sources, like The New York Times, follow right along. Regardless of the anti-science, despicable pieces regularly appearing in those outlets, such as suggesting that actually, masking kids is good for their learning ability.
But everywhere you look, the cultural groupthink is dramatically failing. Counties and states following the CDC’s new guidance are not succeeding, and those ignoring it are faring no worse. Locations that never removed masks, such as Hawaii and Japan, are seeing their highest numbers of the pandemic, but manage to escape the vitriol and hatred leveled at Ron DeSantis because they’re following orders and implementing what the hive mind of acceptable opinion mandates.
The dramatic, predictable failure resulting from the CDC’s science-ending reversal would, in a sane world, be cause for intellectually honest experts to revisit their guidance and accept that their efforts to “control” infections is always doomed to fail. But naturally, we’re seeing the exact opposite. The more masks fail, the more we need them.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott wouldn’t have tested positive for COVID if he’d worn a mask, states that ban mask mandates in schools could face retaliation from the federal government, and in perhaps the clearest indication of futility, indoor masking in Los Angeles has failed so comprehensively that outdoor masks are now required too.
And all of this is in direct contradiction to the inevitable outcome, as acknowledged by more “moderate” COVID experts:
These supposed “mitigations and “interventions” are supposed to prevent cases when that is a complete impossibility, given the reality that everyone will be exposed and infected, perhaps multiple times.
But of course, the theater must continue. The more it fails the more we need it.
Many start to shake only by seeing the letter "T" in a headline, and some Psychiatrists have [half] jokingly described a phenomenon known as "TDS" Trump Derangement Syndrome. A polarizing force indeed, but who is Trump and what are his motives? First, full disclosure this author does support Trump for being an anti establishment hero (or at least, that's how he portrays himself) and for many other reasons. But to be realistic, I have also met the largest campaign contributor to George H.W. Bush who privately confided in me that they fund both parties, and there is little difference (only in optics). Coke vs. Pepsi, the Hegelian dialectic is used to polarize, the first step in division (Divide and Conquer). But, is Trump really that truther - or is he an actor in the play of the century? Let's look at the facts.
First off a little history. I've met Trump multiple times because he was my neighbor (never shook his hand, this was during his germaphobe phase), I went to school at Northwood University in Palm Beach, FL (was bought by another University since then). Growing up in the heathen Boca Raton, Palm Beach was a snobby cesspool of real secret society leaders, or "Globalists" if you will. Kennedys, Carl Icahn, Koch, Lauder - you name it, they are here. 44 Billionaires and growing, all in one county. But this isn't just a rich area, these are the real owners of society. Thomas Peterffy operates the world's largest brokerage in volume terms - Interactive Brokers. Henry Flagler literally built Florida as it is today. We can go on and on - and this all happens on an island less than 8 sq. mi. In this A-list Trump wasn't really so meaningful, in fact he was not really so popular, an outsider. Sure, he had no problem selling memberships to his club, but he was controversial, and on "The Island" as it's called by the locals, someone who has money problems is looked at like a leper. Rumors of Bankruptcies and shady dealings were not good for his image (but practically, you can't escape the labor unions if you are building a hotel in New Jersey). His real claim to fame however was clearly the Apprentice. Americans love their TV reality stars, and Trump was no exception. This part fits into how Presidents are chosen by the Elite (not elected).
When NASA had help with the presentation of the Moon landings from Hollywood, a deal was struck whereby 'we'll make one of you the boss' and Reagan was elected. Actors make great Presidents because all the world is a show, a big puppet show. Reagan was a great President for the Elite because the people responded well to him and that's always the first line of defense in the social control paradigm. The real power is not in the White House it's in the NSC, in the think tanks, and in the deep state. Do Presidents actually do anything that makes a difference? Trump did, to a large extent - and can be argued that since Kennedy, no President has actually done things they said they were going to do. He said he would build a wall, he did. He got tough on China which is a real threat, he cut taxes and created a business friendly environment. He did (although secretly) start to break up the cabal, the big win being Epstein which triggered a number of other things to fall down. He fell short there and the wall isn't finished but he tried. Most importantly, he didn't invade any countries. But there is one huge problem I have with Trump - why does he so much like Vaccines? And these are not really "Vaccines" by any definition, and they do not help stop the spread, or actually have any benefit at all.
Does anyone else think it's strange how Trump is such a huge supporter of these "Vaccines" which are really experiments in nanotechnology, with horrifying side effects? Could it be that Trump was part of the plan all along, a paid actor if you will, in order to achieve a greater end game? For example I've heard someone suggest recently that the deep state wants Trump back in power because they want to engineer riots across America, which is going to be easier with Trump in office. Certainly it was good for news ratings. Some other strange anomalies - Trump as Commander in Chief certainly has access to the surveillance system and clearly knew he won the election fairly. It is almost as if he wanted to leave the White House, by agreement or personal choice. He didn't complain, show any of the evidence, not a peep. He just hired lawyers to make lawsuits which mostly went no where. No statements, no real grassroots organization. Patrick Byrne personally funded investigations into election rigging more than Trump did - isn't that weird? Don't you think if you were in Trump's shoes you'd be pissed off that you won an election and it was stolen?
Finally, let's look at some people close to Trump, such as Globalist Wilbur Ross, from the Island:
Ross ran the bankruptcy restructuring practice at N M Rothschild & Sons in New York beginning in the late 1970s. In April 2000, Ross left Rothschild to found WL Ross & Co. Ross was a banker known for acquiring and restructuring failed companies in industries such as steel, coal, telecommunications, and textiles, later selling them for a profit after operations improved, a record that had earned him the moniker "King of Bankruptcy". Ross has been chairman or lead director of more than 100 companies operating in more than 20 different countries.
Named by Bloomberg Markets as one of the 50 most influential people in global finance, Ross was previously an adviser to New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani on privatization, and was appointed by President Bill Clinton to the board of The U.S. Russia Investment Fund.
Not only is Ross a Bilderberger, he is the grand puba of a secret sect and he even runs the parties in full drag:
It was January 2012, and Ross, wearing a tuxedo and purple velvet moccasins embroidered with the fraternity’s Greek letters, was standing at the dais of the St. Regis Hotel ballroom, welcoming a crowd of two hundred wealthy and famous Wall Street figures to the Kappa Beta Phi dinner. Ross, the leader (or “Grand Swipe”) of the fraternity, was preparing to invite 21 new members — “neophytes,” as the group called them — to join its exclusiveranks. Looking up at him from an elegant dinner of rack of lamb and foie gras were many of the most famous investors in the world, including executives from nearly every too-big-to-fail bank, private equity megafirm, and major hedge fund. AIG CEOBob Benmosche was there, as were Wall Street superlawyer Marty Lipton and Alan “Ace” Greenberg, the former chairman of Bear Stearns. And those were just the returning members. Among the neophytes were hedge fund billionaire and major Obama donor Marc Lasry and Joe Reece, a high-ranking dealmaker at Credit Suisse. [To see the full Kappa Beta Phi member list, click here.]
Not exactly your populist activist.
Second, Trump's son in law (stress on the 'in law') is an active Bilderberger and has some unusual connections with cult members and Israel. Also, see this:
A mysterious poster on an online forum claimed that Jared Kushner was the head of a secret society
In 2007-2008, a mysterious poster on an online forum claimed that Jared Kushner was the head of a secret society which would assume control after the next president (after Obama). Most users thought that it was a larper but they still dug up a lot of interesting information on Kushner.
Today the prediction hits eerily close to home.
Another noteworthy aspect is that back then Kushner was only in his mid-twenties and nobody knew who he was yet, so it would have been really strange for someone to elaborately larp about him.
Now let's take a look at some of how pro-Vax Trump really is, for example he recently said:
“Just six people out of the nearly 7 million who’ve gotten the Johnson & Johnson vaccine reported blood clots,” Trump further whined. “The condition is more common in the general population, and every vaccine – indeed, every medication – carries some risk, including the Moderna and Pfizer jabs.”
Despite several years back while running for president in 2016 expressing his own “anti-vaccine” sentiments, Trump has now decided to take aim at those “resisting” the latest experimental injections from Big Pharma, which are not even approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Trump says that it is “sheer lunacy” for Resident Joe Biden “to delay millions of vaccinations and feed fears among the vax-resistant.”
“Indeed, this moronic move is a gift to the anti-vax movement,” Trump added in the email. “The science bureaucrats are fueling that deranged pseudo-science.”
This is from a conspiracy forum, taken with a grain of salt - again - by itself meaningless but taken with the overall picture we are painting here, these are scary:
Was involved with the Rockefeller Foundation for years. Trump is in on it. They all are. It is actually happening. It is not a movie.
The Rockefeller foundation in conjunction with several other globalist groups have been game planning and brainstorming how they would depopulate for decades.
Rest assured that no one in the public eye is real. Trump was a planner. He was put in to office to divide. He is an actor playing a part. I am sorry and I know it will hurt alot to here for many. But America has been a globalist entity for many years. The US military does the globalist deeds, they follow orders andnare given false reasoning.
This pandemic is not real, most here know that. There is no Covid19. There are no variants. This was planned since 1997. Very little has changed, apart from the name of the disease. Sars Cov 1 was a test run, as was swine flu. Several other "diseases" were used and false stories were fed to the media to create fear. Test runs.
I left the grouo I worked with in 2017. I have a terminal illness and the treatment I am on will keep me alive for only a short time longer.
I post this mainly to tell you this. Under no circumstances take any vaccine. Any if them. They are all designed to slow kill over the next decade. They want at least two billion dead by 2024. By 2030 they hope to have the population of the world below a billion.
The MRNA shots indeed contain graphene. Those taking the shot will be trackable and their mental state can and will be dulled over the lengths of their short lives.
Please. Do not ever take a shot.
Then we get into deeper info from the 90s, so it's more 'real' in the sense that we can say this perspective was not affected by the current "Trump" phenomenon, a MUST READ book Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300. In this book Dr. John Coleman elaborates in great detail on the lesser known organizations that have had and have a huge impact on global affairs, such as the Club of Rome, Tavistock, and others. Pointedly, he notes on how think tanks well funded by Monopolists play both parties against each other (Democrat vs. Republican) and that how many 'conservative' NGOs are not really conservative after all (in such cases as the Heritage Foundation they were setup as conservative organizations but were later taken over by Globalists to further their agenda). Their goal is simple, One World Government, and that requires a weak United States. Not part of the MAGA agenda.
Isn't it interesting, that the populist America first radical, quietly left the White House after legitimately winning in a landslide election (based on alternative audits, quantitative analysis reports, and accounts of election fraud), only to be replaced by a Global medical tyranny - and later coming out as a Vaccine advocate? Frankly, we'll never know.
Still, Trump was one of the best US Presidents ever, who Triumphed against all odds. If this was all a 5d chess game, that's sad - but it's not surprising. The world is not as it seems, as explained in Splitting Pennies.
We hope, we are wrong. We aren't saying that Trump is a Trojan Horse. But hopium is deadly and has caused many psychological problems in the far right who spread rumors about '40,000 sealed indictments' and other nonsense that never comes to fruition.
Was "Trump" invited, chosen, in 2015 as some have suspected?

Since the internet has been widely proliferated, Global powers increasingly rely on stealth (undetectable) technologies because of plausible deniability. The most prominent is of course information warfare, or as they say in the media business - 'fear porn.' But information has it's limits. For example there is a growing trend of TV watchers who are literally cutting the cord. Psychological Operations have an easy way out - tune out. So another more tangible method is needed for more direct control on risky populations, that is, to quell dissent.
Using the weather as a weapon is not anything new, since Project Popeye the military has conducted hundreds of studies and even published a document circa 2000 by the Air Force Academy that their goal, in partnership with NASA is 'controlling the planet's weather by 2020' or something to that effect. It seemed like science fiction at the time. Fast forward to 2021 and we are living in a yearly climate of '10,000 year storms' and 'one in a billion chance' - that is all based on the assumption that weather is natural, which it is not. The best reference if you are new to this topic is a documentary entitled the Dimming, which interviews high level witnesses from US & Canada militaries, retired ranking officers, and other scientific experts. It's an absolute must watch, as well on Dane's site he hosts hundreds of official documents on the topic, as evidence to the operations. Perhaps the most compelling evidence however, is the NOAA Gag order referenced in the documentary. Apparently, weathermen are allowed to TALK about the existence of the order, but they aren't allowed to say publicly what the gag order is about (spraying). Here's more info on the NOAA Gag order:
The corporate government agency NOAA, which oversees the national weather service, is forcing its employees to sign a non-disclosure document which prevents weather service workers from talking about climate engineering programs such as stratospheric aerosol geoengineering, ice nucleation for weather modification, and solar radiation management. What do they have to hide? Geoengineering patents are on file at the patent office. Public statements have been made by CIA director John Brennan in his speech at the council on foreign relations and by presidential science advisor John Holdren.
Washington, DC — National Weather Service employees face growing restrictions on their ability to disclose information about the inner workings of their agency, according to a complaint filed today by the National Weather Service Employees Organization (NWSEO) and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). They contend these gag orders are illegal and are pressing U.S. Special Counsel Carolyn Lerner to lift these nondisclosure policies and take action against responsible officials.
A key provision of the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2012 curbed the use of blanket nondisclosure policies or agreements, otherwise known as “gag orders,” implemented by federal agencies. The act lays out specific exceptions which must be included as a part of any such confidentiality directive.
Don't believe it? Ask your local weatherman. 90% or more are part of a union where the NDA is regulated. There have been incidents where the gag order was violated, as shown in the documentary - and those individuals were quickly terminated. What is so important that they are hiding?
Sadly, the spraying operations are likely a part of a much larger program. The spraying does have physical effects (test your water, you will find more aluminum than can possibly naturally occur) however the results are subtle, only a small amount of the population is actually noticeably allergic to the spraying. But it's not likely the spraying is meant to kill anyone, although it does have very negative long term health consequences. What it seems to be doing is creating a large cloud over populated areas which allow energy weapons to become more effective. It also has side effects of increase of wireless reception (Alumina is an electric conductor), and it may have unknown military benefits.
In Alaska the Military built a 'HARP' based on Nikola Tesla's 'Death Ray' technology that can beam energy anywhere on the planet. Recently, HAARP just got another 9mm + in funding.
Here's an image for imaginative reasons:

Now enter COVID-19 which started in 2019, and fast forward to 2021 when the range of weird diseases and health issues people are experiencing has shifted from the bizarre to something from a science fiction novel or a zombie film.
Could all of these things be connected?
This article is partially inspired by a friend that asked me a great question - How does weather manipulation affect us, with the obvious exception of farming.
Let's start with a piece from the Horse's mouth, The Atlantic:
Summer Is Hot, but This Is Abnormal..
Scorching weather has far outstripped old expectations, but many Americans still have trouble seeing high temperatures as a distinct hazard.
Meanwhile, the economic ramifications of heat waves become clearer every year. In 2017, 120-degree heat grounded flights in Phoenix. In Washington, D.C., and London, train service abruptly halted when tracks melted. And during the pandemic, some New Jersey COVID-19 testing sites had to shut down because of high temperatures. According to the International Labour Organization, heat stress is also projected to reduce total working hours worldwide by 2.2 percent by 2030—“a productivity loss equivalent to 80 million full-time jobs.”
The Miami physician Cheryl Holder, an expert on the links among climate change, health, and poverty, has argued that heat disproportionately imperils older Americans, outdoor and manual workers, and Black, brown, and Indigenous communities.
The combined effects of UV radiation (which affects everyone who doesn't have a metal roof), extreme heat, and beam energy coming from HAARP- can make you moody, sleepy, or even sick. It wears down your immune system, opening up yourself to other possible infections you wouldn't otherwise have. In the context of COVID/Bioterrorism - this would be as Sun Tzu said - the perfect preparation of the battlefield. And the weather isn't something you can avoid, unless you have an underground bunker (many do, but it's only a fraction of the general population).
It can change your decision making. It can affect your brain, which regulates your entire body. It can have a subtle effect, so we aren't talking about cases of heat stroke which have simple solutions. We're talking about the 90% of the population that doesn't realize the weather is affecting them, but it does.
Obviously, we are analyzing things from the outside, just looking at internal documents and the weather reality we are dealing in. There are unknown factors that we can't calculate. But the timing couldn't be any more coincidental. Just as people started to realize COVID is not as deadly as they were saying on TV - we start getting bombarded with bad weather (specifically, heat).

(Global Intel Hub) -- Charlotte, NC - 7/16/2021 -- In what may be one of the biggest testing frauds of the decade, LabCorp (LH) has been found to be offering fake paternity tests that will name any father written in the application form as the paternal father. The first case has been filed in California, but will likely lead to many others. In a world of fake news, where 99% of information proliferated in 'mass media' is disinformation, advertising, or psychological operations - it's not surprising that fake tests and not in the headlines. However, when it breaks that LabCorp has been using fake / false paternity tests for family court cases (divorce, child custody and child support), families are going to be ripped apart.
Exposing a big lie is always painful, but there is no ethical argument that it's better to live in the lie than live with real truth & knowledge of who your real parents are. The fathers who are not the biological fathers certainly have the right to retain their titles - being a father is not just about being the sperm donor. As any dad can tell you, it's 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.
Cases against LabCorp have started mounting, such as this one filed in California [see excerpt below] -
A "Motherless Draw" means ONLY the father is tested for Paternity. LabCorp claims their tests are 99% accurate - of course they are - because they only test one parent! Think of the absurdity. You don't need a degree in Genetic Science to see how this is a total fraud - and this has been the 'standard' used in paternity cases for at least 20 years, maybe more.
So what does this mean to me? For one, this is a call to short LabCorp stock (LH) - as these cases work through the courts further pressure will build. There is a $1 Million insurance policy on each test, with millions of tests done that's Trillions in potential liability.
At least there is one honest company selling fake results, called "FakePaternity.com" -
The LabCorp process works basically the same way - you fill out a form and pay a very small fee, and you can literally prove that your neighbor is the father of your child.
The second takeaway from this information, if you want to do a paternity test, don't use LabCorp, and expect to pay up to $500 for a 'real' test. Yes, there are real genetic paternity tests out there, but they are very expensive. Actually that's the real cost of a genetic test.
Another takeaway is that if LabCorp is offering fake tests, and those are the government approved tests used in child custody cases by state agencies - what does that say about COVID tests ? We're now living in (or almost living in) a dystopian science fiction film where you need to have a COVID test to travel, and in some places buy food, eat (cafes), or attend events. Fortunately, LabCorp's role in COVID testing is quite limited. However, the government's role in adopting an obviously fake standard is shocking. A paternity test should never be 'motherless' - the idea of a 'motherless' test is when the mother is unavailable for testing (i.e. dead or gone).

Silver is one of the most versatile metals on Earth, with a unique combination of uses both as a precious and industrial metal.
Today, silver’s uses span many modern technologies, including solar panels, electric vehicles, and 5G devices. However, as Visual Capitalist notes, the uses of silver in currency, medicine, art, and jewelry have helped advance civilization, trade, and technology for thousands of years.
The Uses of Silver Over Time
The below infographic from Blackrock Silver takes us on a journey of silver’s uses through time, from the past to the future.
3,000 BC – The Middle Ages
The earliest accounts of silver can be traced to 3,000 BC in modern-day Turkey, where its mining spurred trade in the ancient Aegean and Mediterranean seas. Traders and merchants would use hacksilver—rough-cut pieces of silver—as a medium of exchange for goods and services.
Around 1,200 BC, the Ancient Greeks began refining and minting silver coins from the rich deposits found in the mines of Laurion just outside Athens. By 100 BC, modern-day Spain became the center of silver mining for the Roman Empire while silver bullion traveled along the Asian spice trade routes. By the late 1400s, Spain brought its affinity for silver to the New World where it uncovered the largest deposits of silver in history in the dusty hills of Bolivia.
Besides the uses of silver in commerce, people also recognized silver’s ability to fight bacteria. For instance, wine and food containers were often made out of silver to prevent spoilage. In addition, during breakouts of the Bubonic plague in medieval and renaissance Europe, people ate and drank with silver utensils to protect themselves from disease.
The 1800s – 2000s
New medicinal uses of silver came to light in the 19th and 20th centuries. Surgeons stitched post-operative wounds with silver sutures to reduce inflammation. In the early 1900s, doctors prescribed silver nitrate eyedrops to prevent conjunctivitis in newborn babies. Furthermore, in the 1960s, NASA developed a water purifier that dispensed silver ions to kill bacteria and purify water on its spacecraft.
The Industrial Revolution drove the onset of silver’s industrial applications. Thanks to its high light sensitivity and reflectivity, it became a key ingredient in photographic films, windows, and mirrors. Even today, skyscraper windows are often coated with silver to reflect sunlight and keep interior spaces cool.
The 2000s – Present
The uses of silver have come a long way since hacksilver and utensils, evolving with time and technology.
Silver is the most electrically conductive metal, making it a natural choice for electronic devices. Almost every electronic device with a switch or button contains silver, from smartphones to electric vehicles. Solar panels also utilize silver as a conductive layer in photovoltaic cells to transport and store electricity efficiently.
In addition, it has several medicinal applications that range from treating burn wounds and ulcers to eliminating bacteria in air conditioning systems and clothes.
Silver for the Future
Silver has always been useful to industries and technologies due to its unique properties, from its antibacterial nature to high electrical conductivity. Today, silver is critical for the next generation of renewable energy technologies.
For every age, silver proves its value.
U.S. Civil War was one of the most important events in U.S. (and world) history, but as it turns out, what nearly everyone thinks they know about that event is wrong. My high school and university history classes left me with the impression that the war was fought over the issue of slavery: the “North” (good guys) was against slavery and wanted it abolished; the “South” (bad guys) wanted to keep the slaves, so they all went to war. Good guys won, bad guys lost, slaves got their freedom, and the world was made a better place. That, in a nutshell, is what I thought I knew about the Civil War.
I’m not sure why I had that idea so, to make sure I wasn’t mistaken I conducted an informal survey among my American friends and acquaintances, all university educated people, some of them with advanced degrees. I asked about a dozen of them what they thought U.S. Civil War was about. To a person, all of them unhesitatingly answered that it was about the abolition of slavery. Furthermore, none of them were aware that Russia played any role at all in the Civil War. It struck me that maybe my friends and I all had the same basic idea about that event because we were meant to have that idea, which is now pretty much part of the popular culture. However, that narrative omits some critical aspects of history.
While slavery was one of Civil War’s pivotal issues, the notion that the war was fought over slavery alone is simply wrong. The main issue on the opposing sides’ agendas was the secession of the southern Confederation vs. the preservation of the Union. The issue of slavery was a distant second on President Lincoln’s agenda and he showed no intention to force the southern states to free their slaves. In his inaugural address he said: “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it now exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.” Lincoln did not change his position even well into the war. In his August 22, 1862 letter to Horace Greely, he wrote, “My paramount objective is to save the union, and it is not either to save or destroy slavery. If I could save the union without freeing any slave, I would do it.” 
Far from being a domestic affair about the human rights of the slaves, Civil War was a momentous geopolitical event with massive international implications. In his 1960 book “War for the Union,” historian Allan Nevins wrote that, “It is hardly too much to say that the future of the world as we know it was at stake. … Anglo-French intervention in the American conflict would probably have confirmed the splitting and consequent weakening of the United States; might have given French power in Mexico a long lease, with the ruin of the Monroe Doctrine; and would perhaps have led to the Northern conquest of Canada. … The popular conception of this contest is at some points erroneous, and at a few grossly fallacious…” 
Behind the veil of overt neutrality, British and French governments both worked to bring about the breakup of the Union, covertly siding with the Confederation. A powerful faction in the British cabinet, which included the Prime Minster Lord Palmerston, Chancellor of the Exchequer William Gladstone, and Foreign Minister Lord John Russell, strongly advocated British intervention on the side of the Confederation. However, for a variety of reasons, Britain had to be extremely cautious about taking any strong actions. For one thing, Britain was dependent on the U.S. and Russia for over 50% of all of her wheat imports. Any serious interruption to that trade risked bringing about famine and a social uprising at home.
Another recurrent British worry was the risk that their troops might defect to the American side. After years of fighting multiple wars on three continents, the Empire already suffered a growing intervention fatigue. As a result, much of the British public and even Palmerston’s War Minister George Lewis opposed the prospect of yet another military adventure. While extensive plans were made for the Royal Navy to bomb and burn the cities of New York and Boston, help the Confederation break the Union’s naval blockade, and even to foment a secession of Maine, war hawks in the British government needed a good pretext to overcome the dovish faction’s opposition to war.
U.S. – Russian alliance as illustrated in the British magazine, “Punch.” Note that President Lincoln is portrayed as a troglodyte.
On October 23, 1862, Foreign Minister Lord Russell convened a cabinet meeting to discuss his plan of intervention between the Union and the Confederacy. France’s Napoleon III offered his own support in carrying out this plan and even invited Russia’s Czar Alexander II into the alliance. The idea was to pose an ultimatum to the warring sides to agree to an armistice, followed by a lifting of the Union’s blockade of Confederacy’s ports. The objective of Britain and France was to organize negotiations during which they would pressure Washington to accept Confederacy’s secession and recognize its status as an independent nation. Washington’s refusal would give Britain and France the needed justification to recognize the Confederacy’s independence and provide it with military assistance against the North.
On 29th October 1862, only six days after the British cabinet meeting, Russian Foreign Minister, Prince Gorchakov received Washington’s envoy Bayard Taylor in a very cordial meeting. Gorchakov informed Taylor that France and Britain asked Russia to back their armistice ultimatum, assured him that Russia would not support their plan and that Washington could rely upon Russia’s commitment. In the following days, “Journal de St. Petersbourg,” the official publication of Czar’s government, published Russia’s official position on the issue, denouncing the French-British plan against the U.S. In effect, Russia formally sided with Abraham Lincoln’s government, opposing the British, French and the Vatican which also supported the Confederacy.
Meanwhile, on the American continent things were not going too well for Washington. By autumn of 1863 the Union had grown exhausted from warfare. Facing the widely expected French-British military intervention and persisting reports that the British were about to deliver critical armaments for the Confederacy to break the naval blockade, an ominous mood overcame the Union and the morale sank to its low point.
At that juncture precisely, on September 24, 1863 Russian Imperial fleet arrived to New York while another contingent sailed to San Francisco. The fleet remained anchored at these two key port cities for over six months, through April 1864. On the 26th September 1863, the New York Times jubilantly wrote: “The presence of a Russian fleet in the harbor of New York is welcomed by all persons with the greatest pleasure. Five splendid men-of-war, fully manned and in perfect trim, are now lying at anchor in the North River, in full view of our noble harbor…”  Russian Admirals had been instructed that, should the U.S. and Russia find themselves at war against Britain or France, Russian fleet was to submit to President Lincoln’s command to operate together with the U.S. Navy against their common enemies. This move by Czar Alexander II was the clearest possible signal to the British and the French to desist in their plans to intervene militarily in the American war.
God bless the Russians
A number of historians judged Russia’s role in the preservation of the United States as decisive. Webster Tarpley stated that, “During the American Civil War, the Russian attitude was the most powerful outside factor deterring Anglo-French interference.”  American historian and Lincoln biographer Benjamin P. Thomas wrote that, “in the first two years of the war, when its outcome was still highly uncertain, the attitude of Russia was a potent factor in preventing Great Britain and France from adopting a policy of aggressive intervention.”  In his 1992 book “Union in Peril,” American historian Howard Jones wrote that, “Russia’s pro-Union sentiment prevented participation in any policy alien to the Lincoln Administration’s wishes.” Philip Van Doren-Stern pointed out that, “The Russian visit … ended the last chance of European intervention. And it was now practically impossible for the South to be recognized as an independent nation…” 
The arrival of the Russian fleet to New York and San Francisco “unleashed an immense wave of euphoria in the North.”  Shortly after their arrival, Russian sailors and officers were led in a parade down Broadway under American and Russian flags, cheered by thousands of New Yorkers. On November 5, a ball in the honor of the Russian guests was organized in New York at the Academy of Music. A Harper’s Weekly reporter wrote that, “the Russian guests from the fleet were worn out by the expressions of friendship and affection extended to them.”  In a very overt display of appreciation for the Russian fleet’s arrival, President Lincoln sent his wife to visit with the Russians in New York where she drank a toast to the Czar. The New York Herald pointed out that, “Mrs. Lincoln knew what she was doing,” as her action would generate, “a hearty response throughout the country.”  The New York Sun wrote that Russia was, “the only European power that has maintained a hearty sympathy with the United States during our present troubles.” 
Lincoln’s Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles wrote in his journal, “In sending them [the fleet] to this country there is something significant. What will be its effect on France and the French policy we shall learn in due time. It may be moderate; it may exasperate. God bless the Russians.” Oliver Wendell Holmes, one of America’s most popular authors at that time, wrote in 1871 the following tribute to Russia, referring to the Civil War episode: “Thrilling and warm are the hearts that remember; Who was our friend when the world was our foe.”
But beyond the euphoria of the moment, Russian intervention of 1863 had long-lasting impact, further reinforcing the friendship between the two nations. Historian E.D. Adams spoke of the “special relationship,” and even “extreme friendship” between the U.S. and Russia, noting that in the North, Russia was widely regarded as a “true friend” in contrast to the resentment felt toward London and Paris and their “unfriendly neutrality.” Another historian, Thomas Bailey wrote that the “curious and incongruous friendship,” between the U.S. and Russia had become “an indestructible part of our folklore.”
It is utterly fascinating to consider how and why Russian-American alliance became airbrushed from history while the Civil War itself became reduced to a fight to the death over freedom of the slaves. As it happens, thanks to the Reece Committee special investigation (1953), we know that this revisionism was not an accident and have a fairly good understanding of precisely how and why this happened.

Just days after Russian President Vladimir Putin laid out a new national security strategy (seemingly timed to coincide with the US Independence Day Holiday to underscore the general theme) where he elaborated on how Washington uses the dollar as a tool to wage economic warfare against its geopolitical adversaries, Russia's Sovereign Wealth Fund, a nearly $190 billion pool of capital derived from the country's vast oil and mineral wealth, has taken a critical step toward dumping all its assets.
- RUSSIAN FINANCE MINISTRY SAYS IT HAS COMPLETED FX CONVERSION NEEDED TO SCRAP U.S. DOLLAR FROM THE NATIONAL WEALTH FUND
The news isn't exactly a surprise. Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov announced plans to dump all dollar-denominated assets from the fund's portfolio a month ago. Still, while it's unclear how much of the dumping has already been completed, the alacrity with which the massive fund is moving ahead with its plans (trading tens of billions of dollars in FX is a laborious practice and can take time) shows that this wasn't an empty threat.
News that the fund has finished this critical step toward rebalancing its portfolio also coincides with Tuesday's jump in oil prices, triggered by the latest OPEC drama.
The sovereign wealth fund's decision is consistent with the Russian Central Bank, which has dumped dollar-denominated reserves in favor of gold.
As we have explained in the past, the trend of de-dollarization is a very real threat to the dominance of the greenback, which has ruled as the world's reserve currency since the end of WWII (when it officially supplanted the British pound).
While the National Friendship Fund's decision to excise US assets from its portfolio is certainly alarming, it's only one piece of Russia's strategy to undermine the greenback. The dollar's dominance comes largely from its position as the global intermediary of choice for transnational trade. A few months ago, we reported that for the first time ever, Russia settled less than 50% of payments for its exports in currencies other than the dollar.
It's a trend that's been in place since the Obama Administration imposed sanctions over the annexation of Crimea back in 2014.
And it's perhaps the single biggest threat, because if the dollar loses its special status as an intermediary for global trade, than international central banks will have less of an incentive to hold dollar reserves, since it will reduce the demand for dollars overall.
- Paternity Suit Raises Doubts About DNA Tests
- Paternity Testing Reviews for LabCorp (can it be trusted or not?)
- Labcorp competitors
- Is Quest Diagnostics better than LabCorp?
Global Intel Hub -- 7/9/2021 Managua, Nicaragua – Washington hairdresser Andre Chreky gladly agreed to a DNA test when a former employee hit him with a paternity suit.
The claim was absurd, Chreky said he remembers thinking. He had stopped dating the woman years before she gave birth to the boy, now a teenager. This would all be over soon. DNA doesn't lie.
The fight lasted two years. When it ended in May, Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge David T. Stitt not only ruled in Chreky's favor, but also raised serious questions about the reliability of DNA testing during a time when it is relied on to prove paternity, guilt, innocence and more.
"I thought LabCorp's performance was shoddy," Stitt said at a hearing in May after ruling that the state did not prove Chreky was the father. "I think something unfair happened in this case, where a citizen was put to the greatest extent to defend himself against what really has turned out to be a moving target as far as where LabCorp is concerned. . . . I'm concerned about what level of oversight is being exercised by the commonwealth of LabCorp's work."
LabCorp handles more than 100,000 DNA paternity tests for many public and private clients every year, including Montgomery, Prince George's, Howard and Anne Arundel counties in Maryland. (The District handles its own DNA testing.) But evidence at Chreky's trial showed that the company has only five people reviewing the data and making paternity determinations -- with one supervisor testifying that he issues an average of one paternity report every four minutes during a 10-hour shift.
So Chreky's attorneys hammered LabCorp's experts, mostly about what the lawyers saw as two errors on the lab report. The director of LabCorp's DNA identification testing division, Gary M. Stuhlmiller, said in a sworn report that he had arrived at his conclusions after comparing Chreky's DNA with a database of the Moroccan population. Chreky is a native of Morocco.
LabCorp has performed Virginia's paternity testing since 2001 and charges the state $39.50 per test, or about $120 per case. State statistics show LabCorp was paid $797,000 last year and did almost 20,000 tests. LabCorp began paternity testing in 14 of Maryland's 24 jurisdictions in October and had performed about 6,000 tests through July.
Stitt found LabCorp's "99.99 percent" report "not statistically valid." Combining that with his distrust of Doudaklian's testimony, Stitt ruled that the state had "failed to prove by clear and convincing evidence that Andre Chreky is the father of Andrew Lucas .
I was able to add extra participants for $70 each, but I didn’t need to. In the next steps, I added information about the other participant and was given the option to send them a copy of the results as well as receiving them myself. I was a bit surprised that the “Race/Nationality/Ethnicity” of the alleged father was required. However, there was a helpful ‘Why do we need this?’ button that explained it was required by accreditation services.
This is where we ask ourselves the question, why a DNA testing laboratory your website complies with little privacy and lacks information? Why when filling out the forms do they ask for information about the father? Why do they send the report via email without explaining the results?
When I first opened this document, I was surprised to see that it appeared to be a scanned version of a paper report. It was a little wonky and not what I had expected from such a large company.
Looking at the results themselves, there didn’t at first appear to be a clear result, just a table showing lots of numbers. This didn’t make any sense to me and I couldn’t find anything explaining it or links to any advice. I was a bit worried that I would have to try to interpret it to find my answer. However, scrolling further down the page, I realized that there was a ‘Conclusion’ section that revealed what the table meant in terms of likelihood of paternity.
Overall, paternity testing with LabCorp was quick, easy, and provided the answer I expected. However, the results were not as user-friendly as I had hoped they’d be and support in interpreting the report wasn’t easy to find.

As the U.S. re-opens its economy while trying to contain the spread of the contagious viral infection, demand for COVID testing is likely to soar and diagnostic companies such as Quest and LabCorp could be well-positioned to benefit, considering their vast testing infrastructure and footprint of labs. While both companies have been offering testing services for COVID-19 since March, they have tailored their approaches and scaled-up capacity significantly in recent weeks.
can we really trust LabCorp for Covid testing? will not have errors in the forms or test results? We are facing a problem where LabCorp paid a little more than 25 million dollars after the scandals of the failed results of many people in the US.
Quest Diagnostics, for instance, is offering a $119 antibody test that customers can order online without a doctor’s prescription after answering a questionnaire, although blood draw will be required at one of the company’s 2000+ labs. The company has also indicated that it would more than double testing capacity from 70k tests per day in April to 150k tests in early May. Antibody tests, which determine if a person has been exposed to the virus and developed the antibodies needed to fight the infection, could become important as they give people the confidence to return to work.
Quest shares have outperformed, increasing approximately 4% year-to-date, compared to LabCorp shares, which are down approximately 3%.
