I don't think anyone would argue that Russia doesn't have some Western PTB tentacles reaching over its borders. It's just a case of how many and where they are. It obviously stinks that Russia invaded Ukraine, right at the time when the 'Covid' narrative was starting to collapse.          

 

Ill make a follow on post to this one to show another tentacle that is relevant to this thread. i'd put it in this post but that would make it unweildy so i'll break it into two posts but the picture they both make is relevant to this thread topic.....

 

so one tentacle would be the diamond trade as israel is a centre for the processing of diamonds and russia is a major miner of diamonds. The russian company alrosa sells diamonds to israel who has handed huge chunks of wealth to russia which can then be used to fuel the war in ukraine:

Israeli Diamond Traders Fund Putin’s War Machine in Ukraine

Despite new sanctions over Ukraine war, a loophole lets traders sell Russian diamonds in the U.S. – as long as they are first polished in Israel

https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/2022-04-13/ty-article-magazine/.premium/the-israeli-diamond-traders-funding-putins-war-machine/00000180-5b9d-dc66-a392-7fdfe98b0000

Because the Soviet Union was very heavily indebted in the late 1980s,[9][10][a] Viktor Vladimirivich Gerashchenko and six others travelled among Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and others from September 1990 until the afternoon of 17 January 1991 to obtain very large loans from Persian Gulf states to prevent the collapse of the Soviet banking system.[11] However, Gerashenko could not obtain loans but Yevgeny Primakov and Thomas Alibegov did obtain loans but not enough so schemes involving diamond trades would be pursued to obtain additional credits.[11][b] Using uncut diamonds for loans was not as profitable as using cut gems and the Soviet and later Russia friendly expert who cuts and polishes the gems is Lev Leviev of Africa Israel Investments (AFI).[11]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alrosa

Lev (Levi) Leviev (born July 30, 1956) is an Israeli diamond magnate, investor and philanthropist. Leviev was the Chairman and majority shareholder of Africa Israel Investments, a diversified conglomerate, between 1997-2018.[1] Leviev lived in Israel between 1971-2007 and moved to reside in London. He is a noted philanthropist for Chabad Lubavitch causes in Eastern Europe and Israel.[2] In 2018, Leviev had a net worth of US$1 billion according to Forbes.

Leviev was born in Samarkand, Uzbek SSR in 1956.[4] His family moved to Israel in 1971 where he lived until 2007 when he moved to London.[5] His parents, Avner and Chana Leviev, were prominent members of the Bukharian Jewish community, and Leviev is a practicing Orthodox Jew. He is a supporter of the Chabad movement, but as a Bukharan Jew he was brought up in the Bukharan liturgy. In 1971, when he was fifteen, his family emigrated from Uzbekistan to Israel.[6] Alisher Usmanov's father was the prosecutor in Tashkent who helped facilitate the Leviev's departure for Israel.[7]

Start in the diamond trade

Shortly after moving to Israel, Leviev began to work as an apprentice in a diamond polishing plant, learning the 11 steps of the diamond cutting process. After serving in the communications directorate of the Israel Defense Forces,[6] he established his own diamond polishing plant in 1977. in 1980, he acquired 12 competing factories that suffered from credit shortage due to the recession in the diamond industry. The acquisition was done with the help of his father in law's family. In 1992, he moved to Russia and purchased Russia's oldest jewelry factory, Ruis Diamonds Ltd. of Moscow which specializes in fancy cutting and high-end ideal cuts of larger diamonds and competes with Smolensk Cristal, and the Moscow Jewelry Factory (Russian: Московский ювелирный завод (МЮЗ)).[8][9] Valery Rudakov (Russian: Валерий Владимирович Рудаков), a representative with the Main Directorate of Precious Metals and Diamonds (Glavalmazzolot)[a] and the former head of the Yakutskalmaz trust, facilitated Leviev's ownership of Ruis Diamonds.

Support for Jewish causes

After the Revolutions of 1989, Leviev expanded his business into Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. He received the blessings for success in business and personal support of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson for his philanthropic activities, which include "an army of some 10,000 Jewish functionaries from Ukraine to Azerbaijan, including 300 rabbis. Most of the 300 rabbis are Chabadniks" - adherents of the Brooklyn-based Chabad Hasidic group. In particular he sponsors many of the activities of the Jewish Learning Initiative. He is a prominent member of the Bukharian Jewish community, and is president of the World Congress of Bukharian Jews.

Political ties and activities

In the 1990s, Leviev avoided being directly involved with the Yeltsin family, and nurtured ties with Vladimir Putin.[10][11]

Links to Trump family

According to an article published in The Guardian on July 24, 2017, Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner sealed a real estate deal in 2015 worth $295 million to purchase space in the former New York Times Building on 43rd Street near Times Square from Leviev's firms Africa Israel Investments and Five Mile Capital.[12] Later, in October 2016, Kushner used this space as a basis for a $285 million loan from Deutsche Bank.[12][13] The ties between Trump family real estate deals and Russian money interests attracted the justice department's special counsel, Robert Mueller while Mueller was investigating alleged Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump, who has close ties to chabad lubavitch launches 'operation warpspeed' to jab the american people with covid jabs and puts military guy paul mango in charge:

 

One of the key people leading Operation Warp Speed was Paul Mango, who was Deputy Chief of Staff for the Department of Health and Human Services from 2019-2021. During this time, he served as Secretary Azar’s formal liaison to Operation Warp Speed, where he was involved in nearly all strategic, operational, and financial aspects of the program, and facilitated its day-to-day activities among the federal agencies.

Mark Suzman, CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, announced that the foundation would award $8.3 billion in grants this year, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy, a 15% percent increase over the amount the foundation gave in 2022. According to an open letter published by Suzman on Monday, “instead of accelerating efforts to fight infectious diseases, help reduce extreme poverty, advance gender equality, and address the effects of climate change, the world has so far failed to step up with the necessary political will and resources.” …

How Bill Gates and partners used their clout to control the global Covid response — with little oversight

Four health organizations, working closely together, spent almost $10 billion on responding to Covid across the world. But they lacked the scrutiny of governments, and fell short of their own goals, a POLITICO and WELT investigation found.

The four organizations had worked together in the past, and three of them shared a common history. The largest and most powerful was the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the largest philanthropies in the world. Then there was Gavi, the global vaccine organization that Gates helped to found to inoculate people in low-income nations, and the Wellcome Trust, a British research foundation with a multibillion dollar endowment that had worked with the Gates Foundation in previous years. Finally, there was the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, or CEPI, the international vaccine research and development group that Gates and Wellcome both helped to create in 2017.

Key takeaways

1 The four organizations have spent almost $10 billion on Covid since 2020 – the same amount as the leading U.S. agency tasked with fighting Covid abroad.

2 The organizations collectively gave $1.4 billion to the World Health Organization, where they helped create a critical initiative to distribute Covid-19 tools. That program failed to achieve its original benchmarks.

3 The organizations’ leaders had unprecedented access to the highest levels of governments, spending at least $8.3 million to lobby lawmakers and officials in the U.S. and Europe.

4 Officials from the U.S., EU and representatives from the WHO rotated through these four organizations as employees, helping them solidify their political and financial connections in Washington and Brussels.

5 The leaders of the four organizations pledged to bridge the equity gap. However, during the worst waves of the pandemic, low-income countries were left without life-saving vaccines.

6 Leaders of three of the four organizations maintained that lifting intellectual property protections was not needed to increase vaccine supplies – which activists believed would have helped save lives.

 

“What makes Bill Gates qualified to be giving advice and advising the U.S. government on where they should be putting the tremendous resources?” asked Kate Elder, senior vaccines policy adviser for the Doctors Without Borders’ Access Campaign.

Soon, however, governments in the United States and Europe were offering their own crucial support to the four groups. The organizations spent at least $8.3 million lobbying the U.S. and E.U., according to an analysis of lobbying disclosures. When, this past spring, the leaders of CEPI sought to replenish the group’s coffers, it spent $50,000 in part to advocate for $200 million in yearly funding from the U.S. government, according to filings and interviews with Capitol Hill staff.

both Gavi and CEPI received seed funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation — and because they together played a critical role in advising governments and the WHO.

The WHO was crucial to the groups’ rise to power. All had longstanding ties to the global health body. The boards of both CEPI and Gavi have a specially designated WHO representative. There is also a revolving door between employment in the groups and work for the WHO: Former WHO employees now work at the Gates Foundation and CEPI; some, such as Chris Wolff, the deputy director of country partnerships at the Gates Foundation, occupy important positions.

Much of the groups’ clout with the WHO stems simply from money. Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, the Gates Foundation, Gavi, and the Wellcome Trust have donated collectively more than $1.4 billion to the WHO — a significantly greater amount than most other official member states, including the United States and the European Commission, according to data provided by the WHO.

“You have to remember that when you’re dealing with the Gates Foundation, it’s almost like you’re dealing with another major country in terms of their donations to these global health organizations,” a former senior U.S. health official said.

U.S. and European officials — employees who now help the organizations draw on political and financial support for their missions. Former staffers of the organizations work in government, too. For example, Dawn O’Connell is the leader of one of the most important branches in the Department of Health and Human Services for pandemic preparedness in the U.S. She used to work for CEPI, helping raise funds for the organization. And Nicole Lurie, the current U.S. director of CEPI, used to work in that same position in the health department.

The global health nonprofits moved quickly in 2020 to fill the leadership void left by governments still grappling with their domestic responses, according to lobbying disclosures, meeting minutes and interviews.

Leaders of the Gates Foundation, Gavi, CEPI and Wellcome deployed their lobbying and advocacy networks and used their political connections to push U.S. and European officials to commit billions of dollars to Covid programs the organizations helped envision and lead.

The extent of their access to global decision-makers attests to their central role in helping establish the global Covid response: The groups briefed top officials in the European Commission about investments in tests, treatments, shots and the importance of sharing those products with the rest of the world. In the U.K., the organizations usually met several times a month with ministers to discuss topics such as Covid testing, clinical trials and manufacturing capacity. Some of those meetings included Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates — his former wife — spoke directly to then-German Chancellor Angela Merkel about the distribution of Covid vaccine, according to German government documents obtained by POLITICO and WELT.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., leaders of the organizations were also in contact with senior U.S. health officials. Emails obtained by Republicans on Capitol Hill illustrate the extent to which Farrar, the director of Wellcome, was in touch with officials in some of the highest levels of the U.S. government on a sensitive health and national security issue. The emails, released this year, show Farrar in the early weeks of the pandemic discussing the possibility of Covid having leaked from a lab in China with top U.S. health officials including Anthony Fauci and National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins.

Top Trump officials also said they spoke often with Bill Gates and his foundation’s staff about how to fast-track the development of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, and how to distribute them to developing countries. These meetings would grow in number and intensity as the pandemic unraveled. During the Biden administration, officials met with members of the four organizations on a weekly basis, according to two current and one former senior U.S. officials. The U.S. government is also on Gavi’s board and met with the organization often to discuss internal matters.

“We relied heavily on their advice throughout the pandemic, but especially in the early days,” said a former U.S. official about the federal government’s interactions with representatives from the organizations.

But even though the foundation’s expertise was obvious — Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates had made fighting viruses a major part of their life’s work — the fact that crucial decisions were being refracted through American billionaires and the massive network they’d established raised concerns among some officials as well as grassroots activists on the outside.

“These big men of global health and how they … captured the agenda and managed to influence what people are thinking around pandemic preparedness and response – I think that’s really important [to consider],” Harman said. “[There’s] a revolving door of where these people are educated, where these people have worked, how they get the jobs that they’re in – it’s all a really close network.”

The foundation’s clout and that of its allies wasn’t merely a function of being the only game in town; it was also the product of concerted lobbying and advocacy work.

“They’re very good lobbyists. The people are very capable and passionate about their goals. They, of course, also come for funds.”

A European Union official

“They’re very good lobbyists. The people are very capable and passionate about their goals,” a European Union official said. “They, of course, also come for funds.”

Over the last two years, Gavi and CEPI have spent at least $1.3 million on lobbying aimed at obtaining U.S. and European cash to fund their own enterprises and the causes they supported, according to lobbying records. Wellcome also lobbied in Europe — spending at least $1.1 million — to gain political support for its programs.

Meanwhile, the Gates Foundation in 2019 set up a lobbying firm known as the Gates Policy Initiative, led by Rob Nabors, former White House deputy chief of staff for policy in the Obama administration. There are no lobbying disclosure forms on file for the firm.

A spokesperson for the foundation said U.S. law prohibits private foundations from engaging in lobbying and that the Gates Policy Initiative is a separate organization from the foundation that does not coordinate with it on programmatic activities. In a statement, a spokesperson for the Gates Policy Initiative said the organization is funded through a “direct gift” provided from Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates and that it has not engaged in activities that would require the filing of lobbying disclosure forms.

The Gates Foundation’s leaders were also their own best lobbyists. Multiple former Trump officials and staff on Capitol Hill said Gates and his team frequently met with lawmakers and administration officials, including Health Secretary Alex Azar, about the government’s spending priorities in fighting the pandemic. Azar could not be reached for comment.

In the EU and the U.K., from 2020 to early 2022 there were over 100 meetings related to Covid or pandemic preparedness between officials of the four organizations and senior Commission or U.K. officials, according to lobbying records. Leaders of the organizations attended some of the meetings, as did the U.K. prime minister and the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. In Germany, CEPI and Gavi sent numerous letters to the German chancellor’s office over a two-year period in an effort to elicit more funding for their respective organizations.

All the concerted outreach paid off, both in terms of money and clout.

Since 2020, CEPI and Gavi have raised billions of dollars as a result of their lobbying. Between 2020 and 2021, the European Commission gave CEPI over $100 million, while the U.K. contributed more than $330 million, Germany paid over $430 million and the U.S. gave $8 million. In the case of Gavi, for the period of 2021 to 2025, the U.S. has pledged over $4.8 billion, the U.K. has allocated over $2.6 billion, Germany has promised over $2 billion and the European Commission over $1 billion.

By the end of January, CEPI had already decided to invest $5 million in four vaccine development projects, according to its board minutes. The Gates Foundation would go on to invest in vaccine development as well by extending grants to, for example, the University of Washington and NYU, and to Oxford University.

Meanwhile, in the recesses of the Trump administration’s health agencies, officials in January 2020 began discussing vaccine development with pharmaceutical companies, but contracts with those entities would not finalize until months later. It would take until April to fully develop Operation Warp Speed —the team that worked in coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services to fast-track the development of the vaccine and to scale its production. In the meantime, the U.S. focused primarily on responding to Covid domestically, dedicating limited resources to fighting the virus abroad.

By contrast, the leaders of the organizations began to develop systems for distributing those tools abroad, particularly to low- and middle-income countries.

“In previous global health crises, the U.S. government really had played that lead role of helping organize the world around getting vaccines and drugs, and other countermeasures to where they’re most needed. But the U.S. under the Trump administration wasn’t playing that role,” said Tom Bollyky, director of the global health program at the Council on Foreign Relations and an adviser to CEPI. “It really was left to organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Gavi and others, to try to help marshal governments around a plan.”

Paul Mango, former deputy chief of staff for policy at the health department under Trump, confirmed that the U.S. did not start developing a plan for international vaccine distribution until July of 2020 —more than five months after the virus first emerged. But, he said, the U.S. began working as early as February of 2020 to identify potential vaccine candidates, though the administration did not finalize its financial investments in those companies until months later.

In the meantime, the U.S. focused primarily on responding to Covid domestically, dedicating limited resources to fighting the virus abroad.

By contrast, the leaders of the organizations began to develop systems for distributing those tools abroad, particularly to low- and middle-income countries.

“In previous global health crises, the U.S. government really had played that lead role of helping organize the world around getting vaccines and drugs, and other countermeasures to where they’re most needed. But the U.S. under the Trump administration wasn’t playing that role,” said Tom Bollyky, director of the global health program at the Council on Foreign Relations and an adviser to CEPI. “It really was left to organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Gavi and others, to try to help marshal governments around a plan.”

Paul Mango, former deputy chief of staff for policy at the health department under Trump, confirmed that the U.S. did not start developing a plan for international vaccine distribution until July of 2020 —more than five months after the virus first emerged. But, he said, the U.S. began working as early as February of 2020 to identify potential vaccine candidates, though the administration did not finalize its financial investments in those companies until months later.

no i don't think so

 

i think it i about a network of people that trace back to israel, the city of london banking district, the central banks and the sabbateans. Those people already control most of the worlds wealth so they don't need money

 

Their goals go way beyond money. Money is merely the means to the ends for those people.

In my opinion, Carlson is just another pied piper. At the very least, if not literally taking orders, he has lasted an awful long time in the spotlight, for someone who is supposed to be anti-PTB. Suspicious, in itself

 

You have to remember that the global communications network was captured when they sent space idiots to the Moon, this means in order to survive within this captured field a certain amount of patronage to its captors must be adopted for when they want to completely spin the narradigm, the MSM has completely killed itself with the convid psyop, Tucker now finds that he is free to move more easily within this now defunct field of operation and follow the more urgent news stories that need to be revealed to the public that are still bamboozled as to what has been going on for the last four years, like him or loathe him he has been given a very important position within the sequence of events that must be made known.

 

Do you think the MEP's (Christine Anderson et-al) that came out with their announcement that convid is a fraud do not have support behind them to be able to make that statement, even our own MP Andrew Bridgen (rhetorical question).

None of anything is possible without big bags of cash to fund it all with, they are not magicians that can pull rabbits out of a hat at will because magik don't exist except in the minds of gullible idiots, what does exist however is a determined philosophy that is followed and that requires the subjugation of all that oppose it by force and fear which means this philosophy that they follow is bogus if it has to rely on those means for it to work, communism is always one more murder away from utopia.

Another death. I'd almost become desensitized to the daily reports of young and fit people dying, until I remembered that there are people responsible for these deaths, premeditated, and they're now covering it up.

 

The media is without doubt the biggest weapon they yield in this war of information, of truth and lies and of the control of peoples perceptions.

 

But, I still have hope, for a niggling feeling that the big truth may be 'the only way to wake the people up out of the state of a deep psychic sleep, is with a shock, a shock as loud and as bright as an angels trumpet, that they are all woke up to reality'...Clear⚡⚡⚡

yeah as someone else said recently in an article i read, it's not always what the media says but what it doesn't say. By what it chooses to focus on it gets to dictate what 'the news' is.

 

if they were impartial they would of course have decided by now that the excess deaths following the jab roll outs is in fact news and in the public interest to explore. Clearly the media is being steered away from key topics and key areas of information or to put it another way: CONSPIRACY

Surely it must be this. I haven't seen it yet. I'll watch it over dinner.

ALEX JONES, DAVID ICKE & ELON MUSK | TWITTER SPACES

 

what a wild interview that was! Thought David really skewered the agenda from about half an hour in where he explains how the takeover of twitter by musk and his rebranding as some sort of free speech advocate has lulled people into a false sense of security re musk so that now they believe that what they see on X is legit when in fact the algorithms can now control the content seen on X thereby allowing the cabal to create a new more controlled alternative-lite to kettle peoples perceptions so that they don't go any further down the rabbit hole

 

In reality musk is upto his neck in agenda stuff whether it is firing satellites up to help build 'the cloud' or trying to interface humans with AI or advocating for the merger of humanity and AI. Musk is a total bond-style villain but now people think he's some sort of hero battling the elites....

Could he be the prophesied "anti-christ"?

 

He seems to fit the description.

 

PS: I'm not sure about the spelling of the word "prophesied" 😅

Robert devereux the public servant, and i use the word servant in the loosest terms, who raised the retirement age from 61 to 67, forced disabled and  sick people back to work,  has himself somehow mysteriously been allowed to retire at 61,

also has been given a £1.8 million pension from taxpayers money, a lump sum payment of £245,000 and £85,000 a year as a thank you for ripping off the elderly and infirm, forcing people to work till they drop, and all devereux did in his entire life was push a pen
