AS ELITE PRIVILEGED BILLIONAIRE OPRAH WINFREY LASHES OUT AGAINST ‘SYSTEMIC WHITENESS’ SHE WATCHES HER MAGAZINE FOLD AND CABLE RATINGS PLUMMET

There are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people — the caste system that’s been put in place — but they still, no matter where they are on the rung, or the ladder of success, they still have their whiteness. … Whites have a leg up. You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term “white privilege” is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter. “It is the fundamental issue,” declared Oprah of racial assumptions.liberal-billionaire-oprah-winfrey-systemic-whiteness-white-privledge-race-baiter-rascistby Geoffrey GriderAugust 4, 2020

“Whites have a leg up. You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term ‘white privilege’ is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter what”, Oprah said.

It is astonishing to me to watch so many black entertainers and athletes become rich and famous, who get to live a life of luxury that 95% of the people in this country will never know, and then trash the very system and the very people that gave them that success. Billionaire Oprah Winfrey is one of those people, and she wants the world to know that if you’re white then you have to be a racist because, well, that’s just the way it is. Excuuuuse me?

There is an effort underway by the Liberal elites, a demonically-inspired attack to cast Caucasian people as racists, not for anything they’ve said or done, but merely because they are ‘white’, and ‘white’ is bad. Why is Oprah Winfrey doing this? It has nothing to do with the color of her skin, it has nothing to do with ‘ending racism’, for her very position is racist in the extreme. So what then?

It is because Oprah Winfrey is part of the privileged elites who are working to tear down society and bring in the New World Order. The name of her network, called OWN, is NWO backwards. NWO stands for New World Order. Any questions?

Oprah Hosts White Guilt Session: ‘Whiteness Gives You an Advantage No Matter What’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey declared in an episode of her eponymous series, The Oprah Conversation that “whiteness” and “white privilege” afford unspecified benefits to white people in the “caste system” of America.

In an episode entitled “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1” — featuring former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho and drawing its name from Acho’s YouTube series of the same name — Oprah Winfrey invited several white people to discuss “racism,” “white privilege,” and “whiteness.” Oprah praised her white guests for accusing themselves of being “racist.”

Oprah said:

THERE ARE WHITE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT AS POWERFUL AS THE SYSTEM OF WHITE PEOPLE — THE CASTE SYSTEM THAT’S BEEN PUT IN PLACE — BUT THEY STILL, NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE ON THE RUNG, OR THE LADDER OF SUCCESS, THEY STILL HAVE THEIR WHITENESS.

WHITES HAVE A LEG UP. YOU STILL HAVE YOUR WHITENESS. THAT’S WHAT THE TERM “WHITE PRIVILEGE” IS. IT MEANS THAT WHITENESS STILL GIVES YOU AN ADVANTAGE, NO MATTER.

“It is the fundamental issue,” declared Oprah of racial assumptions.

The Wrinkle in Time star invited Seth, a self-described Jewish man from Manhattan, New York, to describe his “awakening” to his own “racist” self.

“YOU’VE BECOME ‘WOKE’ DURING THIS PERIOD, AND REALIZED IN THAT AWAKENING THAT YOU ARE RACIST, RIGHT?” ASKED OPRAH. “I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW THAT HAPPENED.”

Seth replied, “I was born in the 70s. I was born and raised in Manhattan. I’ve always considered myself to be liberal. Now I’m not only a friend of people of color but also an advocate for [them], but this this movement over the last month has been powerful.”

Seth indicted himself as a “racist” who is aspiring to become an “anti-racist.”

“I realized that I couldn’t be not racist,” continued Seth. “I realized that I either was a racist or an anti-racist, and I wasn’t — I’m not — an anti-racist.”

Lisa, a Minnesotan-turned-Californian, attributed “biases” to all white people, warning of “unconscious biases that white people — that we as white people — have.”

Emmanuel Acho said whites living a “white” life become “part of the problem”:

HERE’S WHAT I TOLD MY FRIENDS  WITH THEIR WHITE CHILDREN. I SAID, “Y’ALL LIVE IN A WHITE CUL-DE-SAC, IN A WHITE NEIGHBORHOOD, IN A WHITE CITY, IN A WHITE STATE. IF YOU WERE NOT CAREFUL. YOUR CHILDREN WILL LIVE THEIR WHOLE LIFE WHITE, AND AT [THE AGES OF] 26, 27, THEY’LL END UP BEING A PART OF THE PROBLEM, BECAUSE YOU JUST LET THEM AND ALLOWED THEM TO LIVE A COMPLETELY WHITE, SHELTERED, AND CULTURE-LESS LIFE.

America is “run” by whites, claimed Acho.

“As a black person, white people — the proverbial phrase of white people — they run America, CEOs, Fortune 500 companies, execs, ownership,” Acho stated. “They run America. Not an individual white person, but collective white people.”

Emmanuel Acho declared, “I firmly believe that if the white person is your problem, only the white person can be your solution

MARXIST CO-FOUNDER OF BLACK LIVES MATTER PATRISSE CULLORS DEMANDS DEMOCRATIC PARTY PASS LEGISLATION TO DEFUND THE POLICE, ABOLISH ICE AND DEA

“Until and unless our leaders become signatory to the BREATHE Act — to legislation that eliminates the federal government’s ability to give multi-million dollar grants to militarize police forces; dismantles punitive like ICE, Border Patrol, and the DEA; ends the use of surveillance systems being used to target protesters; and bans the use of police agencies to suppress political dissent — the Democratic Party of today will be remembered as the party of complicity. The party that refuses to sacrifice its own creature comforts and material securities to ensure it walked the walk. So before you leave today, I want you to answer this question for yourselves: Which side of history is my party actually on?” – Patrisse Cullors, Marxists co-founder of Black Lives Mattermarxist-black-lives-matter-founder-patrisse-cullors-demands-democratic-party-pass-laws-defund-police-abolish-ice-dea-communism-domestic-terror-group-blmby Geoffrey GriderAugust 1, 2020

The nationwide push led by Black Lives Matter to defund the police is part of a larger radical agenda expressed in the group’s own manifesto which openly seeks a revolution to topple the U.S. capitalist system and its replacement with a socialist-style government replete with universal income, collective ownership, and the redistribution of wealth.

I am not against taking a long, hard look at how America’s police force is set up, and making reforms and changes as needed, that’s common sense. I am not against reviewing the policies and procedures of ICE and the DEA, and make sure that those agencies are functioning fairly and properly. Groups invested with that much power should be watched carefully and adjusted accordingly should they start to stray from their founding mandates. But why on earth would someone want to get rid of these three groups? The answer is clear and obvious.

Black Lives Matter, a domestic terror group if ever there was one, wants to defund the police and abolish ICE and the DEA in order bring in an oppressive system of black supremacism. Black Lives Matter, declaring that ‘whites are evil’ and ‘must be overthrown’, are rooted in the Communist Party ideals, whose heros are Marx, Stalin and Lenin. Marx was a radical Communist revolutionary who inspired blood-thirsty killers like Lenin and Stalin to rise to power and oppress the people.

Patrisse Cullors proudly says that she and her two fellow Black Lives Matter co-founders are ‘trained Marxists’, and that alone should give you all the reason you need to reject the demands of these BLM domestic terrorists. If Joe Biden wins in November, as you will read below, that will ensure that at least some of the radical legislation called for by BLM will be passed into law.

Black Lives Matter Founder: DNC Platform Must Call for Defunding Police, Abolishing ICE

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Self-proclaimed Marxist and Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors called on Democrats to make “sea changes” to their party platform and adopt radical legislation that calls to defund the police force, eliminate both the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and close all federal prisons and immigration detention centers, alongside various other radical demands — otherwise, “any claims of allyship and solidarity with our work to fight for black liberation are for naught.”

Cullors stated there is “an opportunity right now to right the course of history” and warned that if not careful, the Democratic Party “will miss its greatest opportunity” to lead our country to the “true American revolution.”

The radical BLM co-founder was addressing the Democratic National Convention’s (DNC) virtual party platform meeting on Monday, only weeks before the start of the summer convention. Cullors told the panel “without making the necessary recommitments and revisions, can any of you here truly stand up and say, ‘my party is the party of principles?’”

Cullors also expressed a non-compromising attitude toward adopting some of the most radical policies:

UNTIL AND UNLESS OUR LEADERS BECOME SIGNATORY TO THE BREATHE ACT — TO LEGISLATION THAT ELIMINATES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S ABILITY TO GIVE MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR GRANTS TO MILITARIZE POLICE FORCES; DISMANTLES PUNITIVE LIKE ICE, BORDER PATROL, AND THE DEA; ENDS THE USE OF SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS BEING USED TO TARGET PROTESTERS; AND BANS THE USE OF POLICE AGENCIES TO SUPPRESS POLITICAL DISSENT — THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF TODAY WILL BE REMEMBERED AS THE PARTY OF COMPLICITY. THE PARTY THAT REFUSES TO SACRIFICE ITS OWN CREATURE COMFORTS AND MATERIAL SECURITIES TO ENSURE IT WALKED THE WALK. SO BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY, I WANT YOU TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION FOR YOURSELVES: WHICH SIDE OF HISTORY IS MY PARTY ACTUALLY ON?

In a call following her remarks, Cullors told Axios that she and other activists are “playing the long game” and that “even if we get Trump out in November we will still be having this same conversation about police violence with Biden in office.”

Cullors also added that earlier this month, the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) policy team met with members of Biden’s campaign to discuss the BREATHE Act.

The BREATHE Act:

Formulated by the radical Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) — a coalition of more than 150 organizations and championed by Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — the bill, posted on breatheact.org, is broken into four sections that focus on reforming federal institutions and policies.

The first section calls for moves such as divesting from police agencies like the DEA and ICE, dramatically reducing the Department of Defense budget, ending life sentences and mandatory minimum sentences, closing all federal prisons and immigration detention centers, and decriminalizing and retroactively expunging both state and federal drug offenses.

The second section calls for federal grants to incentivize local jurisdictions to decarcerate jails and/or defund police forces, close detention facilities, abolish state gang databases, remove police from schools, repeal all juvenile offenses, eliminate all court fees and forgive past debts.

The section also calls for a new program that would send trained civilian specialists, rather than police, to respond to 911 calls in order to reduce unnecessary contact between law enforcement and community members.

The next section calls for allocating new money for social equality in communities that provide equitable funding for all schools; developing school curricula that examines the impacts of colonialism, genocide against indigenous peoples and slavery; closing youth detention centers; and providing a lifetime of free access to education for undocumented immigrants, including those who are currently or were formerly incarcerated.

The final section calls for reparations for those incarcerated, including enfranchisement to vote; creating a public financing program for campaigns powered by small-dollar contributions; incentivizing states to increase voter turnout; and allowing undocumented immigrants to vote in local and state elections.

Biden-Sanders unity task force on criminal justice reform:

Unsurprisingly, many of the BREATHE Act’s demands resemble recommendations made by the Biden-Sanders criminal justice task force.

The task force recommendations include ending the use of private prisons and detention centers — including for immigration offenses; ending cash bail; abolishing the death penalty at the federal level; making all sentencing reforms retroactive to allow for individualized resentencing; incentivizing jail and prison closures as populations decline; restoring the right to vote for all formerly incarcerated individuals; reinstating government-subsidized grants (Pell Grant eligibility) for previously incarcerated individuals; conditioning the receipt of federal funds on the automatic expungement and sealing of juvenile records; and federal funding to create a civilian corps of unarmed first responders such as social workers, EMTs, and trained mental health professionals to handle non-violent emergencies.

Breitbart News previously reported that the task force on criminal justice reform, charged with shaping Biden’s public policy agenda and intended to guide the party’s 2020 platform, was composed of extremist members with radical views directly tied to organizations that believe America is inherently racist and must be fought through radical transformation.

Biden, long seen as a moderate, has earned plaudits from progressives in recent weeks for the aggressive recommendations made by the Biden-Sanders unity task force.

“THE COMPROMISE THEY CAME UP WITH, IF IMPLEMENTED, WILL MAKE BIDEN THE MOST PROGRESSIVE PRESIDENT SINCE FDR,” SANDERS TOLD MSNBC AFTER THE TASK FORCE RELEASED ITS RECOMMENDATIONS.

Sanders added that there was a “real honest effort” to find a compromise between left-wing supporters of Sanders and establishment Biden backers.

Patrisse Cullors radical revolution:

Breitbart News previously reported on the M4BL and its extreme vision for what a “true American revolution” would look like, with Patrice Cullors warning the DNC platform committee that if the Democratic Party is not careful, they risk losing the great opportunity to lead our country.

As reported, the nationwide push led by Black Lives Matter to defund the police is part of a larger radical agenda expressed in the group’s own manifesto which openly seeks a revolution to topple the U.S. capitalist system and its replacement with a socialist-style government replete with universal income, collective ownership, and the redistribution of wealth.

Additionally, Breitbart News documented Cullors — whom the DNC platform committee embraced — as the protégé of a communist-supporting domestic terrorist for over a decade, spending years training in political organizing and absorbing the radical Marxist-Leninist ideology which shaped her worldview.

Biden embracing the revolution:

On Tuesday, Biden reiterated that he would be “one of the most progressive presidents in U.S. history” during a rare question-and-answer session with the press after a speech on racial equality in Wilmington, Delaware, as Breitbart News reported.

Biden’s promises of a fundamental transformation have been made on several occasions, including:

  • May 4: Biden calls coronavirus an “incredible opportunity … to fundamentally transform the country.”
  • May 11: Biden says America needs “revolutionary institutional changes.”
  • June 2: Biden calls for America to fight “systemic racism.”
  • July 4: Biden promises to “transform” America and “rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country.”
  • July 9: Biden vows he will put an “end to the era of shareholder capitalism.”
  • July 13: Biden promises “systemic” and “institutional” changes.

On Friday, former congressman Phil Gramm noted in The Wall Street Journal that Biden had taken a hard left turn since securing his party’s nomination, adopting the socialist agenda of former rivals Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. As a result, Gramm said the election was no longer a referendum on Trump, but a referendum on the survival of America

NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER DECLARES ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ THE ‘FUTURE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’ WITH TAXPAYER FUNDED ABORTION ON DEMAND

The National Catholic Reporter is notorious for parroting the positions of the Democrat Party even when they contradict clear teachings of the Catholic Church, and over the years has pushed for abortion, same-sex marriage, women’s ordination to the priesthood, an end to celibacy, and greater restrictions on religious liberty and conscience objections. It is unsurprising, therefore, that among Rep. Ocasio-Cortez purportedly “Catholic” values one discovers a full-bore embrace of the Democrats’ advocacy of taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand as a “human right.”national-catholic-reporter-declares-aoc-alexandra-ocasio-cortez-as-future-of-roman-catholic-churchby Geoffrey GriderJuly 28, 2020 

The progressive National Catholic Reporter (NCR) has declared Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to be “the future of the Catholic Church” noting her frequent references to “Catholic values” and her “passion for justice.”

The National Catholic Reporter may be a Liberal Progressive outlet, but it is absolutely the direction that Pope Francis has been steadily taking the church that Rome built in 325 AD. The conservative Catholic voices are growing softer in volume and fewer in number as the highly-energized, ‘new Catholics’ began to take control.

“I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it. I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” Deuteronomy 30:18,19 (KJB)

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez as a speaker is very hard to listen to as she rambles, mostly incoherently, through the Progressive agenda she is constantly seeking to push forward. But it is not hard to understand her position on abortion, as she has stated that clearly and frequently. AOC wants women to be able to murder their babies, at taxpayer expense, up to the moment they are due to be born. This is the woman that the National Catholic Reporter is raving about.

But the National Catholic Reporter is quite wrong about AOC being the ‘future of the Catholic Church‘, for she absolutely is not. Read the bible verses below and see for yourself what God has declared to the soon-coming future of the Roman Catholic Church.

“And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!” Revelation 18:16-18 (KJB)

National Catholic Reporter: Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is the ‘Future of the Catholic Church’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: In an op-ed Monday, NCR’s executive editor Heidi Schlumpf praised Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as a “rock-star millennial leader of the left” who “grew up Catholic and even wrote about how her faith influences her views on public policies such as mass incarceration, for a Catholic magazine.”

As I listened to her “stunning speech” on the House floor last week, “I was struck by how often it referenced Catholic values,” Ms. Schlumpf wrote.

The National Catholic Reporter is notorious for parroting the positions of the Democrat Party even when they contradict clear teachings of the Catholic Church, and over the years has pushed for abortion, same-sex marriage, women’s ordination to the priesthood, an end to celibacy, and greater restrictions on religious liberty and conscience objections.

It is unsurprising, therefore, that among Rep. Ocasio-Cortez purportedly “Catholic” values one discovers a full-bore embrace of the Democrats’ advocacy of taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand as a “human right.”

Ocasio-Cortez has slammed attempts to pass legislation protecting unborn children, insisting that they are about “owning women” and establishing theocracy in America.

“ABORTION BANS AREN’T JUST ABOUT CONTROLLING WOMEN’S BODIES. THEY’RE ABOUT CONTROLLING WOMEN’S SEXUALITY. OWNING WOMEN,” SHE TWEETED IN 2019. “FROM LIMITING BIRTH CONTROL TO BANNING COMPREHENSIVE SEX ED, US RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISTS ARE WORKING HARD TO OUTLAW SEX THAT FALLS OUTSIDE THEIR THEOLOGY.”

Laws criminalizing or restricting the killing of infants reveal that a woman’s right to receive an abortion “threatens a core element underpinning right-wing ideology: patriarchy,” she added. “It’s a brutal form of oppression to seize control of the 1 essential thing a person should command: their own body.”

Last year, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez went further still, launching a petition to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal funds from being used for abortion.

Insisting that “abortion is health care,” Ocasio-Cortez said the Hyde Amendment “disproportionately harms low-income Americans and people of color just to suit the interests of anti-choice zealots.”

“It’s estimated that over 60,000 women are forced to go through with unwanted pregnancies every year just due to a lack of access to care. In a modern, moral, and wealthy nation such as the United States, that is unacceptable,” she wrote in an email to supporters, adding that access to abortion is “non-negotiable.”

“But thanks to partisan sabotage and zealotry, women across the country are losing access to this constitutionally protected right,” she said. “That ends now. We’re going to fight to repeal the Hyde Amendment, and let people access the care that they need,” she added. “Sign your name if you stand for repealing the Hyde Amendment.”

The Wages of Woke

How Robin DiAngelo got rich peddling ‘white fragility’

 

 

Robin DiAngelo

Charles Fain Lehman – JULY 25, 2020

Dr. Robin DiAngelo, the bestselling author of White Fragility, claims to believe in accountability. DiAngelo used to list the “racial justice” organizations she donates to as part of her extensive “accountability statement,” including a monthly “land rent” paid to the Native American tribe that used to occupy Seattle.

 

But when the Washington Free Beacon began contacting the organizations she listed as recipients of her largesse, DiAngelo scrubbed the site, removing their names and the dates of her giving from the public domain—a version of the page remains available through the Internet Archive after briefly being unavailable due to what the site said were technical issues. The page was edited again as recently as Friday, when DiAngelo wrote she would begin donating 15 percent of her after-tax income, “in cash and in-kind donations,” starting next month—suggesting she had not previously, as the page exhorts, given a percentage of her income large enough that she could “feel it.”

This about-face is odd for a woman who has made her career demanding white people not respond defensively in hard conversations. DiAngelo vaulted to superstardom upon the 2018 publication of her book, White Fragility, which argues that all whites are racist and any rejection of that fact is only further evidence of it. To address racism, DiAngelo argues, requires the sort of anti-bias instruction she is selling.

The nationwide racial outcry that has followed the killing of George Floyd has supercharged the Diversity and Inclusion industry, and DiAngelo may be its greatest success story. While she has likely made over $2 million from her book, the speaking circuit is where she is cleaning up. One of the speakers bureaus that represents her told the Free Beacon that a 60-90 minute keynote would run $30,000, a two-hour workshop $35,000, and a half-day event $40,000.

Even before the George Floyd protests reinvigorated demand for so-called anti-racist instruction, the New Yorker had dubbed DiAngelo “the country’s most visible expert in anti-bias training.” But the eye-popping numbers underscore how she has turned her academic theories about white racism into a multimillion-dollar empire of anti-imperialism. She owns three homes and is an international jetsetter.

DiAngelo did not respond to multiple requests for comment for this article.

DiAngelo’s clients, according to her website, range from Amazon and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to Unilever and the YMCA. DiAngelo reportedly charges up to $15,000 per session—a March 2019 appearance, for example, costthe University of Kentucky $12,000, as well as a $5-a-minute phone-call fee. Recent virtual events run up to $175 a ticket. The eight to ten private events DiAngelo says she speaks at each month likely net her at least $1.5 million annually.

Her book, which made the New York Times bestseller list in its first week and currently occupies the number-two slot, has only added to her success. DiAngelo’s publisher said it has sold 1.6 million copies, one million this year alone. Given a conservative 8 percent in royalties, that would mean the book has made DiAngelo over $2 million.

Such lucrative gigs put the white DiAngelo on par with several prominent black commentators on race. Boston University’s Ibram X. Kendi, whose book has jockeyed with DiAngelo’s on the bestseller list, charges $150 for tickets to public events and $25,000 for a one-hour presentation, his representatives told the Free Beacon. Former Atlantic writer Ta-Nehisi Coates has charged between $30,000 and $40,000 for public lectures.

DiAngelo has presented herself as a classic American rags-to-riches story, offering vivid details of a childhood spent in profound poverty. Those details are not always consistent—in a 2006 paper, for example, DiAngelo claims she “left home as a teenager and struggled to survive,” seeing “no path out of poverty other than education.” But in a recent New York Times interview, DiAngelo claimed to have run away from home but says she “didn’t get far,” and she didn’t enroll in college until she was in her mid-30s. Neither of DiAngelo’s sisters responded to requests for comment.

Her path out of poverty did come through education: a B.A. from Seattle University, then an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Washington. The latter was collected under the tutelage of Professor James A. Banks, the “father” of multicultural education, and earned for a 300-page thesis on the “master discourses” of whiteness.

By the time DiAngelo landed an associate professorship at Westfield State University, outside of Springfield, Mass., she was entrenched in anti-bias training. As early as 2007, she co-taught a class with Darlene Flynn, a leading figure in Seattle’s social justice community.

She may have seen opportunity in a growing industry. The Diversity and Inclusion business was thought to be worth $8 billion as of 2003; by 2005, 65 percent of big companies offered diversity training.

Demand has risen since, and she has reaped the benefits. Public records indicate she owns three homes, all bought before White Fragility was published: a four-bedroom bungalow and half of a duplex in Seattle (her daughter, nearing 40, occupies the latter), and a cabin in rural Washington, where DiAngelo and husband Jason Toews relax with friends who, at least on Toews’s Instagram, appear to be exclusively white. Tax assessments put DiAngelo’s cumulative housing wealth at roughly $1.6 million, in the vicinity of Coates’s $2 millionBrooklyn brownstone.

In the past three years, DiAngelo and Toews, who as of last September served as DiAngelo’s administrative assistant, have backpacked through Thailand, visited Romania, and toured South Africa.

DiAngelo’s wealth is jarring in part because of her criticisms of white privilege. It is also surprising given that available evidence suggests the anti-bias training she peddles does not work.

A review of nearly 1,000 studies of anti-bias tools found little evidence that they have any impact. In fact, recent studies suggest anti-bias training’s primary effect may be to encourage discrimination: Firms with diversity training end up withfewer minorities in management, and field research finds that training both reinforces stereotypes and increases animosity against minority groups.

But DiAngelo’s concept of “white fragility” offers an answer to that academic evidence: The negative responses whites express when told they’re racist are simply evidence that they lack “racial stamina”—and indicate that more $40,000 anti-bias sessions are necessary.

Her advice to white people looking to “shift their thinking and alter their actions” is to engage in more self-education, particularly of the sort she sells. Doing so, she told NPR, “will be lifelong”—an effective way for an already wealthy woman to keep her clientele.

This sales pitch is working. White Fragility tops reading lists from corporationsand prestigious universities. Reading groups from Washington, D.C., to South Euclid, Ohio, are discussing it. And the proceeds all flow to a woman who has made a career arguing that white people like her are inescapably, intolerably privileged—an injustice you can only remedy by buying her book.

Universities Across America Want Students To Read This Book. We Did It For You…

by Tyler Durden 07/26/2020

Authored by Maria Copeland via CampusReform.org,

Amid a nationwide call for anti-racist education, White Fragilityby Robin DiAngelo has gained massive popularity and university endorsement. 

The book, which shot to the top of best-seller lists following the death of George Floyd and subsequent widespread movements, has been highlighted on recommended reading lists by universities nationwide, including Ivy League schools such as CornellHarvard, and Yale.

https://zh-prod-1cc738ca-7d3b-4a72-b792-20bd8d8fa069.storage.googleapis.com/s3fs-public/inline-images/2020-07-26_9-34-36.jpg

Campus Reform decided to find out why. 

The angle that sets this book apart from similar texts is likely its development of “white fragility” as the catalyst of all racial conflict.  

White fragility, according to DiAngelo, is a phenomenon that occurs when people of color confront white people on race-related issues. Categorically, white people will react with “a range of defensive responses,” which include “emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and withdrawal from the stress-inducing situation” and which “work to reinstate white equilibrium as they repel the challenge, return our racial comfort, and maintain our dominance within the racial hierarchy.”

This behavior, DiAngelo clarifies, “is born of superiority and entitlement. White fragility is not weakness per se. In fact, it is a powerful means of white racial control and the protection of white advantage.” 

Essentially, she argues that white people’s distaste for racial confrontation is responsible for perpetuating white supremacy. 

Additionally, DiAngelo recognizes that white people do not like to be classified at large under a broad category, and she predicts throughout the text that white readers will reject her arguments because of this sensitivity, which is a tendency that they must simply learn to overcome.

DiAngelo makes the case that “racism is deeply embedded in the fabric of our society,” saying that all racist acts stem from institutional racism. This means that “only whites can be racist” because “in the United States, only whites have the collective social and institutional power and privilege over people of color.” She acknowledges the occurrence of individual racist acts, but says such actions are “part of a larger system of interlocking dynamics.” Consequently, according to her standards, racism is a behavior unique to white people that cannot be demonstrated by people of color.

Not only have all white people demonstrated racism, DiAngelo says,  but they are doomed to do so indefinitely. She suggests that there is no way for white people to grow up without being racist, because white parents cannot raise their children in such a way that they do not benefit from and perpetuate racism in America. Not only that, but white parents cannot teach their children not to be racially prejudiced, and if they train their children not to express racism verbally, they are only teaching censorship. 

Further, she suggests, race always influences a situation, so there is nothing coincidental about the color of someone’s skin and any conflict in which they are involved: “On some level, race is always at play, even in its supposed absence.” 

Another concept DiAngelo redefines is that of white supremacy. 

“White supremacy describes the culture we live in, a culture that positions white people and all that is associated with them (whiteness) as ideal. White supremacy is more than the idea that whites are superior to people of color; it is the deeper premise that supports this idea—the definition of whites as the norm or standard for human, and people of color as a deviation from that norm.” 

Under this description — which neglects to acknowledge the impact of its traditional connotations, such as ties to the KKK — all white behavior can be categorized as not only racist but also as white supremacist. No one likes to be broadly categorized, but the author anticipates that and understands such behavior to be yet another manifestation of white fragility.

DiAngelo asserts that black women were unable to vote until 1964, explains that “there was no concept of race before the need to justify the enslavement of Africans,” and ultimately descends into reflecting on the nature of white and black identity. 

White is a false identity, an identity of false superiority. In that sense, whiteness isn’t real. The dream is the ‘perfect world,’ unpolluted by blacks. If whites are to construct this world, blacks must be separated through state violence. Yet they still must exist, for the existence of blacks provides the needed other against which whites may rise. Thus, white identity depends in particular on the projection of inferiority onto blacks and the oppression this inferior status justifies for the white collective.” 

The book’s primary points, distilled: 

·         White people must acknowledge the grim consequences of their actions, although they are far too frail to do so

·         White people are responsible to repair a system in which racism runs rampant, although nothing they can do will ever be enough 

·         White guilt is unhelpful because it does not advance any real change, although white people must reflect seriously on the extent of what they have done

Like Nike, the pro-sports officials, owners and athletes of the NFL and the NBA who are making big money off the China market have also turned a blind eye to the brutal oppression of minorities there, all the while making woke noises about how racist America is. The poster child for all of this anti-American demagoguery is NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in 2018 signed a multi-million-dollar contract to become a megaphone for Nike products.colin-kaepernick-takes-millions-from-nike-who-uses-chinese-slave-labor-woke-liberals-black-lives-matterby Geoffrey GriderJuly 26, 2020 

Colin Kaepernick, who in 2018 signed a multi-million-dollar contract to become a megaphone for Nike products, rails against America’s ‘racist past’ while profiting from Chinese Uyghur slave labor.

Colin Kaepernick is the man who started his ‘take a knee’ protest during his short time as an NFL player, to kneel during the playing of the American National Anthem, and protest the ‘racist past’ of America and police brutality. In 2018, Kaepernick sign a multi-million dollar deal with Nike, a company that uses Chinese slave labor to produce its overpriced sneakers. Colin Kaepernick has not said word one about that while he is busy trying to tear down America. I wonder why he’s so silent on slave labor?

The reason for this deafening silence on Nike and Chinese slave labor is money, boat loads of money, which is really what it’s all about any way. They tell us that ‘black lives matter’, but only if it’s the approved type of black life. The lives of black babies don’t matter one bit, if they did, the ‘peaceful protesters’ would be out front of Planned Parenthood who kills over 800 black babies a day. The life of retired black cop David Dorn doesn’t matter, you haven’t read one singe story about how BLM militants murdered him, and you never will.

Colin Kaepernick is a liar, and a hypocrite, who is only in it for the money. But you can prove me wrong Colin, just give back the millions and start protesting Nike slave labor. 🤣🤣🤣THE TRUTH IS THAT ANTIFA AND BLACK LIVES MATTER RIOTERS ARE BURNING DOWN BLACK-OWNED BUSINESSES AND MURDERING AFRICAN AMERICANS LIKE DAVID DORN

Nike should quit lecturing on social justice — and atone for using slave labor in China

FROM THE NY POST: Woke companies are constantly hectoring America on its failings. The Social Justice Warriors who run Nike, for example, pompously inform us that they are fighting “against discrimination in communities worldwide.” Not only that but they are “work[ing] every day to erase the stain of racism and the damage of injustice.”

Really, Nike? Then why do you have your shoes made by an oppressive, morally bankrupt regime? China is the ugly poster child, the living exemplar, for all of the evils that you are so quick to condemn America for. Right now, at this very moment, the Chinese Communists are eliminating the Uyghurs, a Turkish-speaking people who live in China’s Far West, from the face of the earth.

They’ve locked up over a million Uyghur men in concentration camps, aborted and sterilized hundreds of thousands of the women, and are busy selling the young — in batches of 100, no less — to Chinese factory owners as slave labor.

SECRET DRONE FOOTAGE HAS REVEALED SOME OF THE BRUTALITY OF THIS CAMPAIGN. IT SHOWS HUNDREDS OF UYGHUR MEN, HANDCUFFED, BLINDFOLDED AND HEADS SHAVED, BEING HERDED ONTO A TRAIN BOUND FOR A SECRET CAMP.

But it’s even worse for Nike, the wokest of woke companies. It turns out that some of these Uyghurs have been slaving away making basketball shoes with the famous swoosh on them.

An Australian Strategic Policy Institute report published this March, “Uyghurs for sale,” found Uyghur slave labor working in factories supplying 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing, shoe and automotive sectors, including Apple, GM, Gap — and Nike.

Nike contracts with a Qingdao company, for example, that as of January of this year had 600 Uyghurs cobbling together its shoes. Yes, the same company that funds organizations asking for reparations for a practice that ended in the US in 1865 has actually used slave labor in China to make its products — and its profits — for many years.

(Nike claimed on July 21, 2020, on the basis of assurances it had received from the Chinese managers of the Qingdao factory, that all the Uyghur workers had been sent away.)

Like Nike, the pro-sports officials, owners and athletes of the NFL and the NBA who are making big money off the China market have also turned a blind eye to the brutal oppression of minorities there, all the while making woke noises about how racist America is.

THE POSTER CHILD FOR ALL OF THIS ANTI-AMERICAN DEMAGOGUERY IS NFL QUARTERBACK COLIN KAEPERNICK, WHO IN 2018 SIGNED A MULTI-MILLION-DOLLAR CONTRACT TO BECOME A MEGAPHONE FOR NIKE PRODUCTS.

I wonder if the same man who kneels to protest America’s slave-owning past might one day stand for the freedom of slaves in China. It would only be fitting. It was Uyghur slaves, after all, who might have stitched his Kaepernick brand of Air Force 1 shoes together.

While we wait for that moment of self-awareness to strike the young progressive, we at least have the redoubtable Josh Hawley. The Missouri senator this week tweeted Nike and the NBA to ask them to certify that their products are “Slave Free.”

The Trump administration is also doing something about Chinese companies who use slave labor, many of whom are also suppliers to American firms. Those who labor under the delusion that America is the root of all the world’s evil will ignore this, of course, but it is a step in the right direction.

As for Nike, it has pledged to donate “$100 million over the next 10 years to organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education.”

But I have a better idea, Nike. Why don’t you take the blood money you have earned from employing slave labor in China and open a factory in the US? Choose a site in the inner city, employ minorities, and provide jobs and a way out of poverty. That would go a lot further toward ensuring racial equality and social justice, not to mention hope for the future of America, than anything else you could do. 

This Is Bigger Than COVID But Few People Are Paying Attention

by Tyler DurdenMon, 07/27/2020

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com,

Most people realize that 2020 has thrust two game-changing trends upon us that will change the world for years to come.

The first is Covid.

In less than six months, this virus has created extreme global hysteria and economic devastation.

Countless businesses have gone bust or are teetering on the edge. Tens of millions of jobs have been lost.

Government debt around the world has exploded higher. And their heavy-handed abuse of power has been astonishing… often incomprehensible.

Politicians and public health officials have suspended many of our most fundamental freedoms, threatened to come into our homes and take our family members away, and even banished us from our own private properties.

We’ve also seen a breakdown in basic social conventions.

Family and friends have stopped gathering together in person out of fear that someone may be a carrier. Weddings and funerals are virtual. And a simple handshake is practically considered an act of biological terrorism.

And, just like 9/11 nearly two decades ago, many effects of Covid will never return to ‘normal’.

Then there’s the social justice movement… which tore onto the world stage two months ago with a desire to make important cultural changes.

At its core, the movement is virtuous. After all, it’s supposed to be about freedom.

But it has quickly become divisive, menacing, and pointlessly violent.

Everything is offensive. Intellectual dissent must be immediately squashed. People lose their jobs, receive death threats, or are censored, merely for expressing completely valid (and even supportive) opinions.

And some of the largest corporations in the world have all submitted to the Twitter mob, like Nazi collaborators in France who began goose-stepping with the Wehrmacht the moment Hitler took Paris.

History is being rewritten. Vocabulary is being replaced. And any civil discourse results in persecution.

Just like lingering Covid effects, this social turmoil will also be with us for years. Don’t fool yourself into believing it’s some some flash in the pan that will be over in a few weeks.

But what I wanted to tell you today is that there is a THIRD, major trend brewing right now. And it could prove to be even bigger than Covid, bigger than the social justice movement.

It’s not one that evokes the same emotion. So you won’t see too many people marching in the streets or cowering in fear in their homes. There’s no hysteria.

This third major trend is rational. And that’s why it’s largely been ignored. But its impact could be far bigger and longer lasting.

I’m talking about conflict with China.

Over the past several months we’ve witnessed a minor trade dispute between the United States and China escalating into a major diplomatic conflict, and now, into full-blow Cold War.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo left no doubt about this when he essentially declared cold war against China’s communist party in a speech late last week:

“If we bend the knee now, our children’s children may be at the mercy of the Chinese Communist Party, whose actions are the primary challenge today in the free world.

General Secretary Xi is not destined to tyrannize inside and outside of China forever, unless we   allow it.

Richard Nixon was right when he wrote in 1967 that ‘the world cannot be safe until China changes.’Now it’s up to us to heed his words.

Today the danger is clear. And today the awakening is happening.

Today the free world must respond. We can never go back to the past.”

It’s pretty incredible how China has already managed to get most of the world to bend to its will.

There are so many examples of this; major US airlines like Delta and American, have scrubbed  references to “Taiwan” on their websites so as not to offend the Chinese communist party.

Hollywood, despite constantly thrusting its woke social justice politics in everyone’s faces, refuses to utter the slightest criticism of China, simply so they can squeeze out more box office revenue there.

And the National Basketball Association  squashed an executive for Tweeting support to Hong Kong protesters last year.

Even the league’s biggest and most outspoken star, Lebron James, meekishly told reporters that China has “a complicated issue with racial, socioeconomic and geopolitical layers” and that he saw “little upside in speaking up” against the Chinese communist party.

Comparing sports team owners to ‘slave owners’ is perfectly fine. But don’t say anything bad about China!

In addition to Pompeo’s speeech, the US-China conflict escalated last week when the US government ordered the Chinese to close its consulate in Houston, Texas.

The Chinese government retaliated by closing a US consulate in China.

This is after months of sanctions, asset seizures, tariffs, arrests, expelling of foreign journalists, and   plenty of tension about the Coronavirus.

I know there’s a lot of fear that an actual shooting war will break out between the US and China. And that is a possibility.

I’m probably biased as a West Point graduate, but I’m convinced that the US Marine Corps and Army Rangers are the most proficient fighting forces in the world.

But the reality is that China has a bigger army. It’s better equipped with newer, better technology. Its tanks are superior, and it has more of them.

China has also been investing heavily in its Navy and Air Force; it already has more ships than the US Navy, and it has also rolled out a fifth-generation fighter jet, the J-20, to compete head-to-head against the US military’s F-22 and F-35.

But that’s just conventional warfare. The next war will be highly unconventional… and the Chinese are dominant in “system destruction warfare”.

They could take down the US power grid, hack multiple defense and intelligence networks, and remotely disrupt key US command and control elements, before a single shot was fired.

This is not my assessment; the Pentagon has been wargaming conflict between the US and China for years. And in the words of one researcher who has participated in these scenarios, the US “gets its ass handed to it.”

Fortunately, a shooting war is unlikely. Why would China want to invade the US and deal with 400 million guns in the hands of the civilian population?

Why would the US want to invade China and deal with another Vietnam war?

War doesn’t benefit either nation, and on that basis it’s possible… but not probable.

What is likely is a total reset in the global financial system.

The current “Bretton Woods” financial system in which the US economy and US dollar are at the center of the global economy is decades old.

The US has derived extraordinary wealth and prosperity from this system for years.

Bretton Woods is the reason why the US national debt can be nearly $27 trillion (over 100% of GDP) without the dollar collapsing in value.

It’s the reason why the Federal Reserve can conjure trillions of dollars out of thin air and keep interest rates at 0% for years, but still be taken seriously.

Losing this advantage would be nothing short of catastrophic for the US economy.

And continued conflict with China is the one thing that is practically guaranteed to make it happen.

That’s why this trend– conflict with China– could be the biggest thing happening right now.

It’s not as scary as Covid, it’s not as emotional as social justice… but the effects may be permanently devastating.

Israel Reinforces Troops Near Golan Heights Fearing Hezbollah Retaliation To Strikes On Syria

by Tyler DurdenTue, 07/28/2020

Submitted by South Front,

The Middle East is rapidly moving towards a new round of confrontation between the US-Israeli bloc and Iranian-led Shiite forces…

On July 26, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) deployed M109 Doher howitzers near the separation line with Lebanon. The deployment of howitzers became the latest in a series of broad measures employed by the IDF near Lebanon recently. Earlier, the 13th “Gideon” Infantry Battalion of the IDF’s elite 1st “Golani” Brigade reinforced troops near the border. The number Israeli Hermes 450 drone reconnaissance flights also significantly increased over southern Lebanon. Additional IDF units were also deployed in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. On top of this, the IDF announced that it will hold the Lebanese government responsible “for all actions emanating from Lebanon”.

These measures followed the July 20 Israeli strike on Syria, which resulted in the death of a member of Lebanese Hezbollah. Over the past years, Hezbollah has been one of the main supporters of Syrian Army operations against ISIS and al-Qaeda. Tel Aviv increases its strikes on what it calls Hezbollah and Iranian-affiliated targets in Syria every time when the Syrian Army launches active actions against terrorists and seems to be very concerned by the possibility of a Hezbollah response to the July 20 attack.

If Israel is really set to conduct strikes on Hezbollah targets in Lebanon to the retaliatory action by Hezbollah, this scenario could easily evolve into a wider border confrontation between Hezbollah and the IDF.

At the same time, tensions between local resistance groups and the US-led coalition grew in Iraq. On July 24, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq, Ashab al-Kahf, announced that its forces had shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle of the US military over the province of Saladin. The group claimed that the UAV was downed by some ‘new weapon’ and released a photo showing the launch of what appears to be an anti-aircraft missile, likely a man-portable air-defense system.

On the same day, four unguided rockets struck the Pasmaya military camp, which is located 60km south of Baghdad. One of the rockets hit a garage for armoured vehicles, while another one targeted the barracks of the security unit. Two other rockets landed in an empty area. Despite causing some material damage, the rocket attack did not result in any casualties. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The Pasmaya military camp is known to be hosting troops of the U.S.-led coalition and is used for training of Iraqi troops. On July 25, the coalition withdrew its forces from the camp and handed it over to the Iraqi military. According to the official statement, the coalition trained 50,000 personnel and invested $5 million into the creation of training infrastructure there.

Earlier in 2020, the US-led coalition withdrew its forces from several smaller military camps across the country. Some sources tried to present this as a withdrawal from Iraq due to the increasing attacks on coalition forces by anti-US Shiite paramilitary groups. These attacks increased significantly after the assassination of Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units Deputy Commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani in a US drone strike on Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020. The attack put the region on the brink of the US-Iranian war and caused a public outcry against the US military presence in Iraq. However, in fact, the US has not been withdrawing its troops from the country, but rather redeploying them to larger bases. The US military even brought Patriot surface-to-air missile systems to provide additional protection to its forces. It also continues isolated attacks on positions of the Popular Mobilization Units, an official branch of the Iraqi Armed Forces that Washington describes as terrorist groups and Iranian proxies.

On July 26, several large explosions rocked the al-Saqer military camp near the district of Dora south of Baghdad. The Al-Saqer military camp hosts forces of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) as well as the Iraqi Federal Police. Large quantities of ammunition, which were stored in the camp, exploded. Iraqi Security Media said the ammunition exploded as result of “high heat” and “poor storage”. Nevertheless, sources affiliated with the PMU rejected these speculations. Local sources claimed that the explosions were caused by US drone strikes. An MQ-1 Predator combat drone was spotted over the al-Saqer military camp just after the incident. This was the second situation of this kind that happened in al-Saqer. In 2019, a US drone strike hit a weapon depot at the camp.

The current situation sets almost no prospects for a de-escalation in Iraq. The main goal of attacks by local Shiite groups is to force the US to withdraw troops from the country. At the same time, the US is not planning to withdraw its forces and uses these attacks to justify the increase of its campaign against pro-Iranian forces in the Middle East.

THE FIRST GROUP OF 30,000 PLANNED VOLUNTEERS RECEIVE UNTESTED AND UNPROVEN COVID-19 VACCINE IN WORLD’S LARGEST CORONAVIRUS TRIALS

In Binghamton, New York, nurse Melissa Harting said she volunteered as a way “to do my part to help out.” “I’m excited,” Harting said before she received a study injection Monday morning. Especially with family members in front-line jobs that could expose them to the virus, “doing our part to eradicate it is very important to me.” Several other vaccines made by China and by Britain’s Oxford University began smaller final-stage tests in Brazil and other hard-hit countries earlier this month.covid-19-vaccine-trials-begin-georgia-united-states-30000-test-subject-volunteers-coronavirus-bill-gatesby Geoffrey GriderJuly 27, 2020

Every month through fall, the government-funded COVID-19 Prevention Network will roll out a new study of a leading candidate — each one with 30,000 newly recruited volunteers.

Remember back in March and April, when everyone was wide awake and ready to not fall into the clutches of Bill Gates and Big Pharma? That seems like a quaint and distant memory now as tens of thousands of COVID vaccine volunteers are signing up to be injected with untested and unproven vaccines, rushed through with little if any oversight. Bill Gates couldn’t be happier. I wonder if these thousands of volunteers will also be signing up for the ID2020 Immunity Passport? Rhetorical question, please don’t bother actually trying to answer it.

“And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” Revelation 13:6,7 (KJB)

Well, there you have it, and as George Costanza on ’90’s sitcom Seinfeld famously remarked, “it didn’t take very long, either“. It all began on March 18th, with President Trump asking America for a ’15-day window’ of lockdown to ‘flatten the curve’. 4 months and 9 days later, here we are, with masses of people begging the government to inject them with poison so they can ‘do their part’ to help fight the ‘invisible enemy’ in the ‘invisible war’ of COVID-19. Amazing, isn’t it?

Virus vaccine put to final test in thousands of volunteers

FROM THE AP: The world’s biggest COVID-19 vaccine study got underway Monday with the first of 30,000 planned volunteers helping to test shots created by the U.S. government — one of several candidates in the final stretch of the global vaccine race.

There’s still no guarantee that the experimental vaccine, developed by the National Institutes of Health and Moderna Inc., will really protect.

The needed proof: Volunteers won’t know if they’re getting the real shot or a dummy version. After two doses, scientists will closely track which group experiences more infections as they go about their daily routines, especially in areas where the virus still is spreading unchecked.

“Unfortunately for the United States of America, we have plenty of infections right now” to get that answer, NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci recently told The Associated Press. Moderna said the vaccination was done in Savannah, Georgia, the first site to get underway among more than seven dozen trial sites scattered around the country.

In Binghamton, New York, nurse Melissa Harting said she volunteered as a way “to do my part to help out.”

“I’M EXCITED,” HARTING SAID BEFORE SHE RECEIVED A STUDY INJECTION MONDAY MORNING. ESPECIALLY WITH FAMILY MEMBERS IN FRONT-LINE JOBS THAT COULD EXPOSE THEM TO THE VIRUS, “DOING OUR PART TO ERADICATE IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.”

Several other vaccines made by China and by Britain’s Oxford University began smaller final-stage tests in Brazil and other hard-hit countries earlier this month.

But the U.S. requires its own tests of any vaccine that might be used in the country and has set a high bar: Every month through fall, the government-funded COVID-19 Prevention Network will roll out a new study of a leading candidate — each one with 30,000 newly recruited volunteers.

The massive studies aren’t just to test if the shots work — they’re needed to check each potential vaccine’s safety. And following the same study rules will let scientists eventually compare all the shots.

Next up in August, the final U.S. study of the Oxford shot begins, followed by plans to test a candidate from Johnson & Johnson in September and Novavax in October — if all goes according to schedule. Pfizer Inc. plans its own 30,000-person study this summer.

That’s a stunning number of people needed to roll up their sleeves for science. But in recent weeks, more than 150,000 Americans filled out an online registry signaling interest, said Dr. Larry Corey, a virologist with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute in Seattle, who helps oversee the study sites.

“These trials need to be multigenerational, they need to be multiethnic, they need to reflect the diversity of the United States population,” Corey told a vaccine meeting last week. He stressed that it’s especially important to ensure enough Black and Hispanic participants as those populations are hard-hit by COVID-19.

CHINA NOW FORCING ALL CITIZENS TO ACTIVATE HEALTH CODE ON SMART PHONES FOR RESTAURANT AND STORE ACCESS, ONLY A GREEN CODE WILL LET THEM IN

Restaurants and malls are open, but to enter, customers have to activate a health code on their smartphones. The code tracks their movements and determines whether they have been to any risky places. Only those with green codes are allowed in. Many offices insist on green codes, too. A red code, or even an amber one, is the scarlet letter of 2020. You can have concerns about privacy, or you can have a functioning life. You can’t have both. Security guards with temperature guns man the gates at supermarkets and residential compounds, pointing them at the wrists of every person who wants to enter.china-health-codes-green-go-red-access-denied-covid-19-coroanvirus-chinese-fluby Geoffrey GriderJuly 24, 2020 

Only those with green codes are allowed in. Many offices insist on green codes, too. A red code, or even an amber one, is the scarlet letter of 2020. You can have concerns about privacy, or you can have a functioning life. Not both.

Little by little, and inch by inch, the whole world is being brought under the control of the New World Order, and it’s being done under the guise of fighting a virus. China, the country that released this infection upon all of us, seems to be leading the way on all counts. After rolling out contact tracing on smart devices, now come the health codes that you device will generate to either let you in or keep you out of mainstream society in China. In a matter of months it will make its way here to America.

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.” Daniel 7:25,26 (KJB)

One thing the global elites are counting on is the gradual weakening of our resolve to resist the ever-increasing oppression they are placing us under. Having successfully made us afraid of a virus with a 0.6% mortality rate, and having successfully forced us to put the masks on, getting us to accept full time contact tracing with health codes is a walk in the park. The question is, what will you say when they force you to take the vaccine? And rest assured, based on all their actions up to this point, they will force you to take it.

Summer in Beijing: Hot and oppressive, but almost back to normal

FROM HOUSTON CHRON: Restaurants and malls in China are open, but to enter, customers have to activate a health code on their smartphones. The code tracks their movements and determines whether they have been to any risky places. Only those with green codes are allowed in. Many offices insist on green codes, too. A red code, or even an amber one, is the scarlet letter of 2020.

YOU CAN HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT PRIVACY, OR YOU CAN HAVE A FUNCTIONING LIFE. YOU CAN’T HAVE BOTH.

Security guards with temperature guns man the gates at supermarkets and residential compounds, pointing them at the wrists of every person who wants to enter. This is largely a formality, as the reading often does not reflect reality. This reporter has recorded temperatures in the low 80s on several occasions, yet was alive enough to walk through the gate.

Gyms are open, but only if they are above ground. Movie theaters on Monday turned the lights back on, but at 30 percent capacity and with no eating or drinking allowed. Beijing’s main tourist attractions, such as the Forbidden City, require advance reservations, and masks are compulsory. They also are mandatory on public transport and in taxis.

As countries around the world try to find the balance between health and economic considerations to deal with a second or third – or in the case of the United States, first – wave of the coronavirus, China has found its sweet spot. These controls involve immediate lockdowns, mass testing and the use of surveillance technology to a degree that the ruling Communist Party could have only dreamed about when this year dawned.

When a cluster erupted around the Xinfadi food market in Beijing last month, municipal authorities confined 75,000 people to their homes and tested 11 million residents in the space of a few weeks. When traces of the virus were linked to salmon imported from Norway, they even tried to swab the throats of the fish (although it is not clear that salmon have throats).

CHINESE PRESIDENT XI JINPING HAS DECLARED “VICTORY” OVER THE VIRUS, BUT AUTHORITIES REMAIN COMBAT-READY. “LOW RISK [IS NOT EQUAL TO] ≠ ZERO RISK,” BLARES ONE RED AND WHITE PROPAGANDA BANNER NEAR THE BELL TOWER. “THE BATTLE IS NOT YET OVER, AND NO SLACKENING IN PREVENTION AND CONTROL.”

Across the square, where elderly residents gather – mostly mask-free – to play mah-jongg under the shades of the trees, another sign exhorted: “Wear a mask, wash hands frequently, ensure regular ventilation, and maintain good personal hygiene.”

Beijing’s virus-response level ticked down a notch Monday, to three, paving the way for performances and sports events to resume and for public places such as museums to operate at 50 percent capacity.

“BEIJING MOBILIZED THE ENTIRE CITY TO EFFECTIVELY CONTAIN THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS,” CHEN BEI, DEPUTY SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT, SAID MONDAY. BEIJINGERS MUST CONTINUE PROMOTING NEW HABITS AND PRACTICES TO “ENSURE NO SLACKENING IN THE NEW NORMAL OF OUR EPIDEMIC CONTROL,” SHE SAID.

The same controls are being implemented in Urumqi, the capital of the Xinjiang region, where a new cluster of cases emerged last week. The city, already under strict controls as part of the central government’s efforts to repress the Uighur minority, ground to a halt at the weekend when “wartime” measures were enacted.
