In my professional opinion conveniently the N M Rothschild and Sons firm acquires the lease of the Royal Mint Refinery in 1852, refining bullion until the sale of the business in 1967.

Scottish virologist June Almeida at St. Thomas Hospital in London, collaborating with Tyrrell, compared the structures of IBV, B814 and 229E in 1967. Using electron microscopy the three viruses were shown to be morphologically related by their general shape and distinctive club-like spikes. A research group at the National Institute of Health the same year was able to isolate another member of this new group of viruses using organ culture and named one of the samples OC43 (OC for organ culture). Like B814, 229E, and IBV, the novel cold virus OC43 had distinctive club-like spikes when observed with the electron microscope.
The IBV-like novel cold viruses were soon shown to be also morphologically related to the mouse hepatitis virus. This new group of viruses were named coronaviruses after their distinctive morphological appearance. Human coronavirus 229E and human coronavirus OC43 continued to be studied in subsequent decades. The coronavirus strain B814 was lost.

So it would be wise for actual journalists to do their homework and connect the dots instead of acting like the darkness is the light in the world,when people deserve answers on why anyone would support those who preach the following message below:
What Is Agenda 21?
Agenda 21 – and the recent ones Agenda 2030 and Agenda 2050 – is a plan to depopulate 95% of the world population by 2030, according to Disclose.tv..
It is an action plan devised by the U.N. and signed by 178 governments at the UN Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. Its goal is the depopulation of humanity because “we are too many”. It is promoted by the elites as a way to “save the planet” and implemented by governments worldwide. Bill Gates even shared his view about how to achieve this goal by vaccinations and other means in a TedX lecture:
“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care & reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

In the late nineteenth century N M Rothschild and Sons specialised in the finance of mining companies, notably De Beers, through the Exploration Company of which the bank was a founder, and also acted as bankers to the governments of Brazil, Chile and Egypt.
So now it's up to us all in our lifetimes as the world turns, to question every little detail and connect the dots independently without having the MSM broadcasting into your ears or eyes,trying to conceal the truth,whole truth,and nothing but the truth away from the mass population that redefines us globally as "sheep" and not independent thinkers.
Don't let history repeat itself. as some lessons were meant to be taught in classrooms so future generations could prevent things of past from regenerating under new names or embed itself into issues facing us globally. Leaving us vulnerable to things that can sometimes be called a "Manufactured Crisis" by a group or individuals on large scale affecting life as we know it on Planet Earth.

Note:This is major victory for world where people may directly or indirectly be practicing eugenics around the world and have bragged about it publicly at events including TED Tech conferences last 20 years;while suffering from a "God Complex'.
Have Bill Gates and his eugenicist foundation’s crimes against humanity finally caught up with him? If the Supreme Court of India has anything to say about it, he will face the ramifications of poisoning millions of Indian children with vaccines.
A recent report published by Health Impact News shows that a vaccine empire built on lies can only go on for so long. The reports states:
“While fraud and corruption are revealed on almost a daily basis now in the vaccine industry, theU.S. mainstream media continues to largely ignore such stories. Outside the U.S., however, the vaccine empires are beginning to crumble, and English versions of the news in mainstream media outlets are available via the Internet.
One such country is India, where the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and their vaccine empire are under fire, including a pending lawsuit currently being investigated by the India Supreme Court.”
If you aren’t aware of the key players in the vaccine mayhem being driven into African countries, they are:
The World Health Organization
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health, funded by the Gates’ foundation), and
GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, also funded by the Gates’ foundation)
All four of these organizations will now be expected to explain themselves due to a writ of petition originally submitted to the Supreme Court of India in 2012, by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot, and Dr. Rukmini Rao, which has finally been heard by the courts.
The petitioners stated:
“BMGF, PATH and WHO were criminally negligent trialing the vaccines on a vulnerable, uneducated and under-informed population, school administrators, students and their parents who were not provided informed consent or advised of potential adverse effects or required to be monitored post-vaccination.”
Furthermore, though absent from most mainstream U.S. media outlets, the Economic Times of India published their report in August 2014, stating that young tribal girls were tested with HPV vaccines. This involved not a handful of children, but 16,000 individuals in Andhra Pradesh, India, where they were given the Gardasil vaccine.
KP Narayana Kumar reported that within a month of receiving the vaccine, many of the children fell ill, and by 2010, five of them had died. Another two children were reported to have died in Vadodara, Gujarat, where another 14,000 tribal children were vaccinated with another brand of the HPV vaccine, Cervarix, manufactured by GlaxoSmitheKline (GSK), who incidentally, has been accused of dumping polio virus into a Belgium river.
Consent forms to administer the HPV vaccine were ‘illegally’ signed by wardens from youth hostels, showing that the Gates’ prey on the indigent without parents. For those who had parents, most were illiterate, and the true potential dangers of the vaccines were not explained to them.
SAMA, an organization in India which promotes women’s health discovered this insidiousness, and reported it, but only now will Gates and his cronies have to answer for their misdeeds. Approximately 120 girls reported epileptic seizures, severe stomach cramps, headaches, and mood swings, of those who did not die. Other girls receiving the Gardasil vaccine have experienced infertility.
The Economic Times further reported:
“The SAMA report also said there had been cases of early onset of menstruation following the vaccination, heavy bleeding and severe menstrual cramps among many students. The standing committee pulled up the relevant state governments for the shoddy investigation into these deaths.
It said it was disturbed to find that ‘all the seven deaths were summarily dismissed as unrelated to vaccinations without in-depth investigations …’ the speculative causes were suicides, accidental drowning in well (why not suicide?), malaria, viral infections, subarachnoid hemorrhage (without autopsy) etc.”
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation declared their little vaccine project a total success. I guess the Supreme Court of India will decide that now.

Protect Your Family From Fearmonger Fauci
By Michelle Malkin | May 13, 2020
This Mother's Day weekend, my family defied government pandemania. We drove out east from Colorado Springs to the tiny town of Calhan for a lovely little hike in the purple-and-gold-hued Paint Mines archeological district. Unmasked, we basked in the sunshine, fresh air, and freedom. The park was teeming with moms like me who put family bonding over "social distancing."
We were not alone — and that was a glorious thing.
There is nothing public health fossil Dr. Anthony Fauci can do or say to stop me from making the best choices for my children's health, sanity, and resilience. He appeared before the Senate on Tuesday to heckle states like Colorado not to get back to business — back to life — too soon and too quickly.
"Needless suffering and death" will occur, he told The New York Times. "I think we better be careful [that] we are not cavalier in thinking that children are completely immune from the deleterious effects," he testified.
Irked by Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul's very necessary reminder that no federal infectious disease bureaucrat is the "end-all" decider of our fate, Fauci warned against reopening schools because children in New York are "presenting with COVID-19 who actually have a very strange inflammatory syndrome, very similar to Kawasaki syndrome."
How dare you accuse us parents of being "cavalier" with our children's health, Fauci, when you are scaring them with dubious, unverified claims connecting a few cases of an alleged mystery pediatric disease to the coronavirus?
How dare you toss around so cavalierly the uncorroborated specter of "Kawasaki syndrome" (a rare but treatable disease) while untold numbers among the 57 million K-12 students suffer from the effects of panic-induced anxiety, depression, phobias, and isolation?
Here are some actual facts about Fauci's Kawasaki hype: Peer-reviewed studies over the last several years have identified multiple theories of the inflammatory disease's etiology, including genetic factors, environmental triggers, superantigens, bacterial infections, and viruses. A blinded, case-control retrospective study on kids at Children's Hospital in Denver investigating whether one strain of human coronavirus infection was a factor among Kawasaki syndrome patients "failed to demonstrate an association." The Mayo Clinic diseases and conditions information website states that "scientists don't believe the disease is contagious from person to person." Moreover, the Mayo Clinic states: "Kawasaki disease is usually treatable, and most children recover from Kawasaki disease without serious problems."
The truth is that Fauci is misleading American families and educators through arrogant acts of both omission and commission. The Kawasaki lie is not his first or last lie. Before he embraced masks for all, he smugly dismissed the measure in March during a "60 Minutes" interview because it would "make people 'feel' a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet, but it's not providing the perfect protection people think that it is." Now, he says, face coverings "should be a very regular part" of our daily lives.
Dutiful reporters ignore the flip-flop, slavishly acting as stenographers for Fauci and the rest of the dishonest "deep state."
"Masks are here to stay," The Washington Post Lifestyle section chirped last week. To which I say: Hell, no.
As a responsible parent and citizen, I will not let terror rule my children's lives. I speak from heart-wrenching personal experience over the past five years as my teenage daughter, already battling chronic pain and joint hypermobility requiring multiple surgeries, also suffered from severe clinical OCD that left her unable to do mundane things — like use a public bathroom, eat out at a restaurant or ride in a crowded vehicle. She lost friends. She fell into depression. Her physical and emotional health deteriorated. She was homebound, helplessly trapped in the worst kind of self-imposed lockdown.
Thanks to a brilliant and effective doctor, she learned to confront her fears instead of cowering from them. She learned that avoiding risks at all costs carries its own unacceptable risks. Every member of my family benefited from embracing the exposure therapy ethos. We cannot hide from germs, people, or adversity. My daughter has remained strong in the face of mass hysteria and refused to withdraw from the world — working, seeing friends, and living life.
As Dr. Judy Mikovits, author of "Plague of Corruption" and star of the documentary, "Plandemic," which social media platforms have banned everywhere, has said, "fear is a very powerful immune-suppressant." By holding our children hostage, federal scare-mongers with vested financial interests and ideological agendas are making our most precious and vulnerable members of the American family sick.
Here in Colorado Springs, two cadets at the Air Force Academy committed suicide while on extreme lockdown.
In Ohio last month, 12-year-old Hayden Hunstable committed suicide after suffering in a "perfect storm" of loneliness under quarantine, his family said. Isolation was a "hidden killer and equally as shocking and horrific as what is happening on the front lines of this disease."
Where is Fauci's concern for these invisible victims of the invisible enemy? He's apparently too busy preparing to jab a new generation of young guinea pigs with his BFF Bill Gates' shots. To which I again say: Hell, no.
Teaching your children to live rationally and fearlessly, through words and deeds, is the most potent vaccine we can give them.

Anthony Fauci should explain '$3.7 million to the Wuhan laboratory'
By Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times
Monday, April 27, 2020
President Donald Trump’s legal counsel, Rudy Giuliani, in a recent chat on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio, suggested a good U.S. attorney general move about now would be to investigate key members of the past Barack Obama administration on the Wuhan, China, laboratory, to see what they knew and when they knew it.
And then he mentioned Dr. Anthony Fauci specifically.
And then he accused the prior Team Obama of sending $3.7 million to the lab in 2014 — at a time when that same Team Obama had banned the funding of any lab that was involved in virus experimentation.
And then he namedFauci as the guy who gave the money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
This — after Fox News reported more than a week ago that federal authorities have “high confidence” in the fact that COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, originated at Wuhan.
Ouch. Politically speaking, the perception of one of this administration’s loudest voices on the coronavirus front — the one calling for shutdowns and shut-ins and contact tracing-slash-government-tracking of American citizens — well, it doesn’t look good to have him tied financially to Wuhan.
Giuliani, as RedState noted, said this: “Back in 2014, the Obama administration prohibited the U.S. from giving money to any laboratory, including in the U.S., that was fooling around with these viruses. Prohibited. Despite that, Dr. Fauci gave $3.7 million to the Wuhan laboratory. And then even after the State Department issued reports about how unsafe that laboratory was, and how suspicious they were in the way they were developing a virus that could be transmitted to humans, we never pulled that money.”
Giuliani said if he were attorney general, he’d open an investigation.
He also said he didn’t “want to make any accusations,” but that “something” was “going on” — that “there was more knowledge about what was going on in China with our scientific people then they disclosed to us when this first came out.”
Think about it, he said.
“I mean,” Giuliani said, “if this laboratory turns out to be the place where the virus came from — we paid for it. We paid for the damn virus that’s killing us.”
Fauci has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, and while his agency did send $3.7 million in grant to EcoHealth Alliance to study “the risk of future coronavirus (C0V) emergence from wildlife using in-depth field investigations across the human wildlife interface in China,” not all the money went to Wuhan, the Washington Examiner reported.
It’s also not clear that Fauci was the actual guy who made the funding decision.
Still. Still, Fauci was the guy in charge of the agency.
Meanwhile, the larger question is why American taxpayers would be funding the Wuhan lab at all.
“If I were U.S. attorney, I’d open an investigation into the Wuhan laboratory,” Giuliani said. “And I’d want to know what did we know? How much did we know about how bad the practices were there? Who knew about it? And who sent them money anyway? And that person would sure as heck be in front of a grand jury trying to explain to me — what are you, asleep?”
Good questions, all.
Fauci, for his part, has plenty of opportunity, should he choose, to speak out and address the matter. In fact, he’s got the eyes of the nation upon him, not to mention the ears of the president.
One of these White House press conferences, he ought to take a quick time-out from telling Americans to stay home, stay quarantined and stay away from work, and talk about the small matter of the $3.7 million funding from his agency to the Wuhan lab. Millions of near-house arrested Americans deserve to know.

Frozen Phones: Antarctica gets its own cellular network
Kevin Fitchard Dec 10, 2013
The government of Australia has built a cellular network in the most inhospitable clime in its jurisdiction. I’m not talking about the Australian Outback, but rather in its Antarctic territorial claims far to the south.
The Australian Depart of the Environment’s Antarctic Division has fielded a GSM network supplied by Range Networks at its research station on Macquarie Island, about halfway between the Australia and the frozen continent. It has plans to expand that network to three more research stations on the Antarctic mainland.
This isn’t the first time cellular connectivity has been available in Antarctica. Claro(s amx) and Movistar(s tef) have set up towers on the continent to connect research bases, but those systems have essentially been far-remote extensions of their networks back in Argentina, depending on satellite backhaul links to connect calls.
What Range and Antarctic Division have done is built a self-contained, independent communications network that manages and switches calls on-site. It’s the equivalent of a private mobile carrier: It still needs satellites to connect to the rest of the world, but if that orbital link were to go dark in a snowstorm, the cellular network would keep on chugging, connecting calls locally.
Range has developed a reputation for building networks in some of the world’s hardest to reach areas. Its base stations are deployed in remote regions of Zambia and Indonesia. Range is the creator and the primary backer of OpenBTS, an open-source cellular networking standard, and it’s trying to commercialize the technology with what it calls a “network in box,” a system that can easily and cheaply bring online cellular communications anywhere in the world.
One of the key advantages to the OpenBTS architecture is it’s entirely built on software. It uses software-defined radios to create the air interface that links to any regular GSM phone, but once you get past the tower, the proprietary base station and mobile core elements built into a regular GSM network all disappear. Its network just looks like an IP communications server that can run on commodity hardware or even in the cloud.
The Australian government is definitely taking advantage of those OpenBTS capabilities to overhaul its communications network at the research station. It’s running its landline and cellular communications off of the same equipment. “They already have a VoIP desk-phone network in place,” said Jacob Winkler, who heads of sales and business development at Range. “The cellular phones become extensions on that network.”
In addition, the research station is also using the cellular network to replace an old paging network used to wirelessly upload data from its myriad of scientific and environmental monitoring equipment. Now data is shipped back to the research station via SMS.
Right now the network is in place at Macquarie Island facility, which has about 30 buildings and hosts between 16-40 travelers depending on the season. But the system is capable of supporting up to 400 mobile phones and 800 landline extensions.
As the Antarctic Division expands to other research stations on the continent, new Range base stations will become part of the larger cellular grid, creating a network with coverage of 150 square kilometers (93 square miles). Range will also build a network on a 110-man research vessel, extending the network onto the open ocean.

Crown Castle International: Bill Gates is Buying This Hot Tech Stock
Crown Castle: The Largest Provider of Shared U.S. Communications Infrastructure
Bill Gates, the second-wealthiest person in the world, has a net worth of around $90.0 billion. Along with his wife, Melinda Gates, the pair are the eponymous names behind the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the largest private foundation in the U.S.
Like all philanthropic organizations, its goal is to generate wealth and share it. To do this, Bill and Melinda Gates invest in organizations that they believe will provide them with the greatest long-term gains. Bill and Melinda have seen the future, and it is 5G.
The bread and butter of that technological revolution is Crown Castle International Corp. (NYSE:CCI), a real estate investment trust (REIT) that is the largest provider of shared communication (cellular) infrastructure in the U.S.
Bill Gates Snapped Up 5.3 Million Shares in Crown Castle
According to the latest U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the pair purchased 5.33-million shares in Crown Castle International Corp. (Source: “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,” U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, last accessed February 11, 2019.)
Why did Melinda and Bill Gates add 5,332,900 shares of Crown Castle International Corp. (valued at $627.5 million at the time of writing) to their holding of 19 equities? It all has to do with Crown Castle’s communication infrastructure and the rollout of 5G technology.
(Source: “Crown Castle International Corp. (REIT) (CCI),” Yahoo! Finance, last accessed February 11, 2019.)
Crown Castle International Corp. is a real estate investment trust that owns, operates, and leases more than 40,000 cell towers and roughly 65,000 route miles of fiber in every major American market. The company also has approximately 65,000 on-air or under-contract small cell nodes. (Source: “Our Infrastructure,” Crown Castle International Corp., last accessed February 11, 2019.)
Small cell networks are a series of small nodes that are often attached to existing infrastructure, like utility poles, signposts, or streetlights. In some cases, Crown Castle also attaches its small cells to the sides and tops of buildings.
Small cells will play a crucial role in meeting the growing demands of wireless data and increased bandwidth that new technologies like 5G require.
Crown Castle leases its towers to wireless carriers, like Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), and T-Mobile Us Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS). This helps provide Crown Castle with substantial recurring revenues and excellent free cash flow.
Because of the high barrier to entry, it also means Crown Castle has little competition. That has allowed the company to provide investors with long-term capital appreciation and a frothy dividend yield of 3.77%.
Crown Castle’s share price has been on a roll in 2019. The company was actually doing very well in 2018, but then its momentum was upended by the market’s broad-based sell-off in October and the December meltdown.
Since bottoming on December 26 at $103.21, CCI stock has been heading higher. In fact, Crown Castle’s share price has surpassed its pre-December highs, hitting a new 52-week high of $119.43 on February 6.
Since December 26, Crown Castle’s share price has advanced approximately 14.5%. Since the start of 2019, the company’s share price has increased more than 10%. Part of that growth in 2019 can be attributed to the company’s solid year-end results.
Crown Castle Reports Solid Q4 Results, Raises Outlook for 2019
On January 23, Crown Castle International Corp. reported results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2018. (Source: “Crown Castle Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Results, Raises Outlook for Full Year 2019,” Crown Castle International Corp., January 23, 2019.)
CEO Jay Brown stated: “We closed out another year of growth with solid results in the fourth quarter and increased our Outlook for 2019, demonstrating the strong fundamentals across our business.”
Adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) is a profitability measure used by REITs to define the cash flow from operations. It is a non-generally accepted accounting principles (non-GAAP) financial measurement used by Wall Street, but it gives a good snapshot of profitability (minus unrelated items) that comes from rentals.
CFO Dan Schlanger stated: “Our positive 2018 results and increased full year 2019 outlook reflect the strong underlying demand for our communications infrastructure assets and our team’s continued focus on translating the robust growth in data demand into growth in dividends per share.”
During 2018, Crown Castle made significant investments in new fiber assets in robust markets where the company expects to see the greatest demand for small cells and fiber solutions. It also substantially completed the integration of recent acquisitions and improved its financial flexibility.
Schlanger concluded, “Looking forward, we are excited about the growth trends across our business and the long-term opportunity in front of Crown Castle as we continue to target 7% to 8% annual growth in dividends per share.”
Why Does 5G Matter?
Each generation of wireless technology introduces new changes. The shift from 1G to 2G introduced us to digital voice and text messaging. 3G gave us the first wave of digital data and 4G’s faster speeds allowed us to use navigation software and accelerated the use of social media.
5G, though, is entirely different. Jumping from 4G to 5G will be like going from the ear-buzzing dial-up to broadband. Thanks to a combination of technologies, which includes small cells, fiber, and millimeter waves, 5G will be capable of delivering data at unprecedented rates as high as one gigabit per second. That’s 20 times faster than current networks.
5G is more than just speed, though. It increases the number of devices that can be managed on a wireless network, opening up the window to new possibilities for wearables and machine-to-machine communications.
It will also finally usher in the much-hyped global connectedness of the Internet of Things (IoT). Some of the exciting applications for the IoT include healthcare, smart homes, autonomous cars, smart cities, agriculture, retail, energy, farming, augmented reality, and virtual reality.
That’s only part of it. 5G will help make life more efficient and safe in ways we haven’t even considered yet—not unlike the birth of the Internet. No one really knew how it would impact us and what we could do with it.
The fact is, 5G has unlimited potential, and Crown Castle International Corp. has been busy installing thousands of small cells in cities across the U.S.
2019 is the year it all begins.
AT&T, Verizon, Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Samsung, and Verizon are expected to launch their first 5G phones this year. The second 5G rollout will take place in 2020 or 2021.
This will help boost Crown Castle’s recurring revenue stream and free cash flow generation. It should also help increase its annual dividend yield and share price.
Maybe Bill and Melinda Gates are onto something.

Chemtrail Pilot Blows the Lid Off OPERATION INDIGO SKYFOLD
April 3, 2015
In confirmation to the Indigo Skyfold pilot’s testimony that is the main subject of this article, another US Air Force personnel has thrown herself into the battle against chemtrail and global geo-engineering operations.
But the creativity of the trolls to twist even their own positions and facts is an expression of their growing desperation. They would even claim they’re with us.
The battle against chemical and biological warfare in all their forms, e.g. chemtrail, vaccines, and GMO, is humanity’s battle. This is our battle against pure evil that is now occupying critical positions of power.
We are hoping that more insiders would come out in the open and tell the world the whole truth about all these sinister operations.
A Courageous Chemtrail Pilot Exposes the Global Geoengineering Program
Finally, a military pilot steps forward and completely blows the lid off the unlawful and exceedingly destructive Global Chemtrail Program. What follows is a video which puts forth a true story about a courageous pilot who has broken ranks with his chemtrailing peers. In so doing he has risked his life and the life of his family. As you listen to this presentation, or read the text provided below, bear in mind that chemtrails are being sprayed 24/7 around the globe with terrible consequences.
For those uninitiated in the ways of atmospheric engineering, chemtrails are but one geoengineering technique that is being systematically used by the U.S. Military. The following link provides an excellent overview of the geoengineering/chemtrail phenomenon, as well as an exceptional photo-doc. After all, only seeing is believing … for most people!
The Truth about Chemtrails
No matter what the stated reasons are given to those who fly the chemtrail jets, they are always told by their superiors that this ongoing and illegal atmosphere-altering program is being conducted in the interest of national security.
You’ll notice that national security appears crooked because the whole intention behind geoengineering is as dangerously misguided as it is deceptively false. The indiscriminate, wide-area and systematic spraying of toxic aerosols throughout the skies of the world couldn’t possibly have anything to do with ‘national security’. Those that buy into such a ridiculous notion have obviously been either brainwashed or bribed into believing such an absurd and nonsensical agenda.
That’s precisely why this unprecedented exposé is so important. Never before has anyone directly involved with the piloting of chemtrail airliners ever gone public. Not only does “Blue Jay 1”, as he is known, go public, he completely blows the lid off of Operation INDIGO SKYFOLD. This single act of identifying the name of what is perhaps the most destructive government program in recorded history is extremely critical.
Because it now gives the worldwide anti-geoengineering advocacy groups a target to hit within their own nations and governments. How, after all, could government officials and political leaders at every level — federal, state, county and city — be so clueless about a massive aerosol spraying program that is going on in the skies right above them?! Can any responsible representative continue to plead such ignorance or indifference and get away with it?
That’s why this critical development is so huge! Really HUGE! It is what we have all been waiting for, yet so few in the movement really get it. Which is why this particular message has to be taken to the wider public. Because at the end of the day — every day — every human being on every continent will really abhor two things about the now ubiquitous chemtrails.
I. Chemtrails routinely transform warm sunny days into cool cloudy ones. No one likes to see their clear sunny days stolen after a couple of hours of chemtrailing. Day after day of overcast skies have profoundly changed many a locale which have traditionally experienced clear skies. Is there anyone who prefers damp cloudy days to dry sunny ones? Certainly the people of Florida and California want their fun in the sun! So does the rest of the USA.
II. Chemtrails contain a mix of toxic chemicals and poisonous compounds such as barium salts, aluminum oxide, strontium, mercury among many others, which eventually end up falling to Earth. The chemtrail mix of toxins inevitably leaves its residues on farm fields and forests, lakes and ponds, and lawns and gardens. How does one possibly stop the noxious chemicals from entering one’s home and automobiles, office building and shopping malls? Who ever wants a toxic chemtrail brew dropped on them every other day?!
Geoengineering has proven — unequivocally — to be extremely detrimental to both human health and the greater planetary environment. As for the many adverse health effects, the link below gives an excellent summary.
CHEMTRAIL SYNDROME: A Global Pandemic Of Epic Proportions
Secret Chemtrail Pilot Speaks, on Dec 8, 2014
by The HAARP Report
For those who did not watch the video shown above, the most important text is provided below.
Information below was received by the cousin of an actual pilot who flies chemtrail jets and is working on the inside. The operation is known to pilots and aviation crew alike as ‘Indigo Skyfold’.
Pilots are told to fly specific routes, while satellites control aerosol dispersal patterns. The pilots make course corrections from time to time, and perform landings and takeoffs. Pilot navigation and maintenance crews are rotated constantly, and only spend about 18 months at one given base, to keep pilots and their families from making too many friends, and ending up with “loose lips”. They also rotate between day and night flights, one base for daytime flights, and one for night. Each base covers a 250-mile zone, and each fleet (squadron) of planes covers three states, or an even larger swath of ocean.
They’re told to simply do their job and “Shut the F*ck Up!”
Their superiors tell them it’s a matter of National Security.
Quote: “Without these flights our enemy’s newest technological weapons of war could easily penetrate America’s airspace, at will. We are dedicated and committed to keeping our allies safe from the same skyward threats, so we extend the arm of protection to those countries that support our efforts. Hostile nations are also building atmospheric shields, while at the same time trying to explore weaknesses in our ever-developing air and space based technologies.”
Sounds more like a PR statement to me.
I think this pilot, either believes what he is told. Or, he is simply trying to sugar coat their Genocide Project.
. . . . .
December 08, 2014
My firewall detected multiple intrusion attempts when I googled the Indigo code as well. Zero info to be found on the internet for this operation. That is unique.
I received a rather lengthy reply from the chemtrail pilot. Here is text from their email:
December 08, 2014
“First of all I would like to say that I do not agree with my mission assignments, but what soldier ever truly does? Several of us have considered bucking the ranks, and going AWOL from time to time. We are kept in the dark when it comes to getting honest answers about what we are really spraying. Should they discover that we or our families are actively enquiring about the so-called ‘chemtrails’ term, then automatic and swift disciplinary action would be taken.
HAARP and radar are two other non-allowed research subjects. Unless our children are learning about these in base schools, we cannot educate ourselves or our children through any public education system. I would not intentionally spray my children or family with toxic aerosols, but as you must know, perhaps 80% of the pilots do not have any family or children.
Indigo pilots are chosen from top ranks within the Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard. Most of the pilots are ‘hardened to humanity’ and could care less killing off unwanted or leaching aspects of America and the world. I swear to you, the majority of the pilots are like machines, I call them “Tanker Terminators”.
I should not be telling you this, but nearly 1/3 of all flights are being orchestrated from small unnamed islands, where newly constructed bases are being built at a rate of 8 per year. On these extremely remote islands there are HAARP rays of every possible design, with many arrays surrounding these islands within the depths of the ocean itself. The Navy has developed sophisticated underwater construction technology that allows fully autonomous robot submersibles to travel great distances, and even manufacture parts for these massive underwater arrays as they progress across the open sea floor.
Every time that you see or hear about military exercises at sea, they’re basically there to give support and resupply their army of underwater robotic minions. There is possibly one aquatic robot per plane, and will soon be double that. You will never be able to Google Earth or Search any of this. Other than an occasional error in blurring some island bases, or smudged images of underwater arrays, it is impossible to locate all these advanced technological devices. They even paint fake clouds over some of our island installations to keep prying eyes away.
I have been shown some of these images by civilian friends. That is the reason I know this. I completely understand your concern for human safety, and here is the kicker. We are shown videos in our training of catastrophic destruction to our homeland by very sophisticated weapons, then told that these will be the consequences if we don’t fly.
Our efforts in building a defensive atmospheric weapon shield are the only missions of its kind in the world. We are paid more than any other pilot for our service, other than Air Force One pilots who make as much or more and are kept in a dark, secret world for their own protection. They tell us that secrecy is our protection, and not to listen to any public rhetoric.
We all know about cyber program flash-point or FP- 03 as it is known within the veteran community. This program is a self-destruct sequence that can be remotely activated from any ground, water surface, underwater base, as well as any other air mobile unit. The signal is encrypted through three satellites and cannot be jammed or blocked. At any given moment you could have only 15 seconds to make your peace with your God. They tell us that FP exists to keep planes from accidentally going down in heavily populated areas. They can remotely detonate our planes over safe zones, but in the back of your minds, our minds, we’re pretty sure this is a fail-safe program to keep pilots from turning over assets to any public, private, or civilian authorities.
Have you ever seen any member of the crew survive the few crashes that have occurred? Every plane that has gone down was completely destroyed … for good reason, I am sure. We risk our lives in more ways than one, every single time we fly, especially during night flights. They are ordering us to fly at lower and lower altitudes. We feel like a massive “Dark Force Empire”of crop dusters, and know that one night Bubba, or Billy Joel, will fire there long rifles at us when we spray their moonshine-making operation, or pass over an illegal Mary Jane crop.
I know for a fact that some planes have been shot at, and subsequently brought down by mostly Russian, Chinese, and Korean weaponry, but the media will never cover these events as they are not allowed to report on our flights either. That must be true, for I have yet to see a detailed or in lengthy report of our missions on any public venue other than conspiracy shows and anti-government websites.
I risk everything for disclosing so much information and you will find very few like me. Even my own flight crew would have me arrested and court martialed if they knew of this dialogue. That is why I cannot email you directly, but from what your cousin tells me you are also risking everything just to get this information out to your colleagues.
I salute you sir, for standing up to the establishment and Big Brother. I would love to go home tomorrow and not rack up one more single minute of flight time, except for a sweet little Piper Cub, or Rat Tail Barn Racer. I miss those beautiful blue skies from my youth, and I am ashamed for hazing over that dream.
More importantly, maybe my fellow pilots will read or hear about this, and decide to come forward as well. I only know a small fraction of the larger picture, as they compartmentalize everything. Should I become aware of any new significant developments I will email your cousin.
The man I have contact with says he senses a wavering within the ranks, and that a kind of mutiny is beginning to boil to the surface of this whole geoengineering global whitewashing, if you catch my drift. My cousin still has friends in high places too, so he is helping to protect the pilot.
. . . . .
This came December 11.
Last word from the pilot and I quote. “All pilots on leave are required to report to their CO by Dec 15th for special training operations, to qualify for Indigo Phase 2 flights, expected to be initiated by January 21.”
Those were his words, not the actual Air Force message. He wanted me to stress that. He believes that the focus of their flights will be moved to areas east of California and Texas, in order to advance the drought further into the heartland; plus, he feels that a very new and extremely toxic chemtrail mix is going to be sprayed, using new technology that makes thesespecial chemtrails completely invisible. “Atmosphere shield of protection”, he doesn’t believe that either. So that is the end of the message from this chemtrail pilot.
From my own experience I’ve had a lot of contact with this guy for six months via the Internet, and basically everything he told me has turned out to be true, so I have no reason to doubt any of this, and hope you forward it.
This also points out how difficult it is to fight this program because people inside the program are not subject to public opinion or exposed to public information sources. Therefore, we need to brainstorm and come up with the way to shut down this program, as it is actually heating the planet, and killing everything with elevated UV rays, and toxic metals.
Thank you for listening.
An active chemtrail pilot has quite courageously stepped out of the shadows at great risk to his career and his life. Such a sacrifice ought to compel the fast-growing community of anti-chemtrail advocates to disseminate his much needed message. Raising the worldwide awareness around this pilot’s unprecedented disclosures seems essential toward shutting down the current form of global geoengineering.
Operation Indigo Skyfold has been outed. We now know its name. We now know how it works. We have been informed that it is being expanded in 2015 and is now more dangerous than ever.
Pilots, Doctors, & Scientists Tell The Truth About Chemtrails/Geo-Engineering
November 1, 2014 by Arjun Walia
One factor that’s commonly overlooked when it comes to talking about human health and environmental degradation is geo-engineering and Solar Radiation Management (SRM), also known as “chemtrails.” The name seems to come from the fact that various geo-engineering and SRM programs use stratospheric aerosols like barium, nano aluminum-coated fiberglass [known as CHAFF], radioactive thorium, cadmium, chromium, nickel, desiccated blood, mold spores, yellow fungal mycotoxins, ethylene dibromide, polymer fibers and more.
Below is a video of multiple scientists, doctors and pilots telling the truth about “chemtrails.” It’s a very serious issue that’s often ridiculed and thrown into the conspiracy realm. As a result I attached information from an article I recently wrote about the subject.
You must understand also that you can mitigate the effects of chemtrails, i.e. all chemicals deliberately mixed into the air you breathe or even in the food you eat, with a very simple off-the-shelf appliance.

Tanks – Approximately 4 1/2 feet high and 5 1/2 feet long each. They are installed on a cargo handling system in the main cabin, close to the over-wing exits. One tank is emptied through the widow plug on one side of the plane. Then the unit is switched over to the other tank, which sprays out of the other side of the plane. (Below)

The Monsanto company name has become so strongly associated with being an enemy of nature that a tribunal in The Hague once called for a law making "ecocide" a crime.
Widely used Monsanto weed-killer Roundup is in the cross-hairs of a first-of-its-kind civil lawsuit in the United States, where jurors will be asked to decide whether it gave a school groundskeeper terminal cancer.
Monsanto's controversial chemical legacy came with the deal when the company was recently acquired by Germany-based Bayer for more than $62 billion.
Founded in 1901 in St. Louis, Missouri, Monsanto early on made the artificial sweetener saccharin. The company began producing agrochemicals in the 1940s.
Monsanto was one of the companies which produced a defoliant dubbed "Agent Orange," which has been linked to cancer and other diseases, for use by US forces in Vietnam but denies responsibility for how the military used it. The company also made insecticide DDT.
After it was introduced in the United States as Roundup in the mid-1970s, the use of the glyphosate—which is sprayed on food crops but also widely used outside of agriculture, such as on public lawns and in forestry—soared across the globe.
The company began genetically modifying plants, making some resistant to Roundup.
There was a dramatic jump after the introduction in 1996 of genetically engineered "Roundup Ready" crops, such as soybean and maize, that survive glyphosate while it kills weeds.
Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world, produced by an array of companies since Monsanto's exclusive patent expired in the year 2000.
It is the subject of conflicting scientific studies as to whether it causes cancer.
The herbicide has been accused of damaging the environment, contributing to the disappearance of bees and being an endocrine disruptor.
The chemical has also been used as a pesticide for decades, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency website.
Bayer announced in June that it would get rid of the Monsanto company name after the merger, while brand names on products would remain.
The San Francisco trial of Roundup and its possible carcinogenic effects is the first litigation of its kind against the company to make it to trial.
In 2012, Monsanto negotiated a $93 million settlement to settle a case with the West Virginia town of Nitro, where a plant making a main Agent Orange ingredient once operated.
The municipality accused the plant of being behind health problems faced by people in the community.
A French court in 2012 found Monsanto to be liable in the case of a farmer who said he suffered neurological problems after inhaling the company's Lasso weed killer.
Monsanto has appealed the finding on points of law.
Meanwhile, Monsanto's genetically modified seeds have triggered concerns and legal challenges in Europe and the United States.
Last year, a citizen court consisting of panel of professional judges in The Hague (Netherlands) found Monsanto guilty at a mock trial of human rights violations for harm caused by chemicals.
What became referred to as the "Monsanto Tribunal," in a purely advisory opinion, called for stronger laws protecting people and the environment from corporations, and a prosecutable crime of "ecocide."
Monsanto has always denied any link between disease and glyphosate, a substance classified as carcinogenic in the US state of California.
Monsanto now employs 20,000 people around the world and generates $15 billion in annual revenue.

As I remember reading in 2019,Japan came out with proof that washing hands with only water does far more in prevention when it comes bacteria on surfaces,pathogens,and health issue related to what travels in the air when the sick group is exhaling or inhaling virus particles.
Washing hands with soap or sanitizers scrubs away the good bacteria on our bodies that combat the viruses largely stemming around bad germs or bacteria on surfaces on global scale.
In other words avoid man made products and use only what god gave you on planet earth to combat the virus,germs,and all things bad in category of virology that make us sick.-
New research: Hand sanitizers no match for Influenza-A
A squirt of hand sanitizer may be giving you a false sense of health security.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — So your co-worker is a coughing, sneezing mess who should have stayed home. Used tissues pile up in his trash bin. You can’t even imagine what lurks on his keyboard or phone. And he's NOT the only one.
Question is, how do you keep yourself from becoming the infected with the crud making the rounds at work?
For many, the answer is to quickly reach for the bottle of hand sanitizer. But new research out of Japan shows that bottle may be providing a false sense of security if the co-worker is infected with influenza-A, a strain of the flu.
Researchers from Kyoto Profectural University of Medicine have been testing the effectiveness of ethanol-based hand sanitizers. Their findings show it takes four minutes of rubbing ethanol-based sanitizers on your hands before the influenza-A virus is killed.
Lead researcher Ryohei Hirose, PH.D., MD, says influenza-A viruses that are coughed up by an infected person are encased in a mucus. Scientists found ethanol-based hand sanitizers need four minutes to cut through the mucus coating.
On the other hand, the research team says hand washing for at least 30 seconds, even without soap, is more effective at eliminating the spread of influenza-A virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say regular hand washing is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others.
RELATED: VERIFY: Is hand sanitizer as effective as washing your hands?
"You're scrubbing your hands, you've got running water, you're sort of breaking the little bonds that the bacteria or the virus make with your skin cells and they're just being flushed away," said Dr. Craig Hedberg with the University of Minnesota's School of Public Health, as to why hand washing is so effective.
Dr. Hedberg says this study doesn't necessarily mean you have to ditch the hand sanitizer, just know that it is not a replacement for washing your hands.
"If you're in a setting where you can't wash your hands, it gives you some protection. It's an additional thing you can do to fill the gap," he said.
There is a right and wrong way to wash your hands. The CDC video on the right way can be seen on the agency website.
The Japanese study was published this week by the journal mSphere.

Zygmunt F. Dembek,* Dennis G. Cochrane,† and Julie A. Pavlin
To the Editor: As public health practitioners directly involved in constructing, maintaining, and interpreting syndromic disease surveillance systems, we offer the following comments on the Buehler et al. article, "Syndromic Surveillance and Bioterrorism-related Epidemics" (1). In general, this article was well-crafted. It reviewed the potential for syndromic surveillance to detect various diseases of bioterrorism, specifically an anthrax event based on the inhalational anthrax cases of 2001. However, the reader may conclude that hospital-based syndromic surveillance is potentially ineffective and unproven.
Buehler et al. describe how, within 18 hours, a presumptive diagnosis of anthrax would prompt a full-scale response. We think that functional syndromic surveillance can respond to the rapid onset of hospital-based disease. To isolate and positively identify Bacillus anthracis from a blood culture would take ≈48 hours. Syndromic surveillance should detect a large number of cases within 24 hours. A fully functional hospital syndromic surveillance system that uses automated analysis (such as the daily emergency department–based surveillance with SaTScan in New York City) should identify a substantial increase in a relevant syndrome within 12 to 24 hours after data submission (2). A continued daily rise in any disease category would most certainly set off alarms in a syndromic surveillance network. If active statewide laboratory surveillance is included in syndromic surveillance, such as the gram-positive rod surveillance conducted in Connecticut (3), this surveillance should rapidly detect even single cases of anthrax concurrent with the presumptive diagnosis within the hospital.
The authors also state that syndromic surveillance would not detect outbreaks too small to trigger statistical alarms. The combination of active and passive surveillance in the hospital admissions–based syndromic surveillance in Connecticut allows a number of syndromes to be tracked immediately upon notification; these syndromes include pneumonia and acute respiratory disease in healthcare workers admitted to a hospital, all disease clusters, and fever with rash illness. This system is very flexible, and active surveillance of other syndromes can be quickly instituted as required. This active surveillance component has been proven useful. The first 2 of Connecticut's 17 confirmed human cases of West Nile virus during 2002 were discovered in August when a health director, who regularly monitored the syndromic admissions data for the hospital in his municipality, requested immediate West Nile virus testing from the hospital's infection-control department when he received two late summer reports of neurologic illness.
Buehler et al. state that specificity for distinguishing bioterrorism-related epidemics from more ordinary illness may be low because the early symptoms of bioterrorism-related illness overlap with those of many common infections. Illness specificity can be modulated within a syndromic surveillance system by making changes in the definition of the information requested, the method of analysis used, or by incorporating varying amounts of active surveillance into a passive reporting system. In Connecticut, annual rates of hospital admissions for pneumonia and respiratory illness have significantly increased (>3 standard deviations) during winter months. These increases have corresponded temporally with peaks in laboratory-confirmed influenza reports and in our state-based and the national sentinel physician influenzalike illness reports. Similarly, in the military-based syndromic surveillance system, respiratory outbreaks are detected by monitoring routine outpatient visits and pharmacy prescriptions. Absolute numbers of visits, as well as percentage of visits, to primary care clinics for influenzalike illness provide up-to-date information on respiratory disease conditions at military installations in both active-duty personnel and family members.
Connecticut has added additional active surveillance categories to its syndromic surveillance for potential SARS cases by gathering extensive data on all healthcare providers hospitalized with respiratory illness. In the absence of an identified pathogen, the entire United States was conducting syndromic surveillance for SARS during the spring of 2003.
What are existing alternatives to rapid, patient-based reporting through syndromic surveillance for bioterrorism and emerging illness? Will individual physicians (i.e., the "astute clinicians") truly recognize an increase of nonspecific symptoms among their patients in time to warn public health authorities of an impending bioterrorism event? During the past 4 years in the U.S. military population, unless disease was extremely severe with high rates of hospitalization, virtually no outbreaks of infectious diseases detected by syndromic surveillance were reported to public health officials, even when effective preventive measures existed. Our experience leads us to encourage states and municipalities to develop functional, patient-based syndromic surveillance systems and discover both their limitations and their possibilities.

In reply: The thoughtful letter of Drs. Dembek, Cochrane, and Pavlin draws attention to several key themes emerging in the ongoing dialogue about the utility and role of syndromic surveillance. First, as illustrated by their work, the growing body of experience in conducting syndromic surveillance should advance this dialogue beyond the hypothetical framework described in our manuscript to a more evidence-based assessment of epidemic detection. Second, in the absence of a bioterrorism-related illness since 2001, the utility of syndromic surveillance for detecting naturally occurring events is coming into greater focus, particularly for detecting the onset of anticipated seasonal upswings in infectious diseases, including West Nile virus disease, gastrointestinal illness, and influenza.
Syndromic surveillance coupled with follow-up investigations can assist clinicians by alerting them to communitywide problems likely to be manifest among their patients. This recognition may occur at the hospital level, as reported by Dembek et al. in the initial recognition of West Nile virus disease in Connecticut in 2002, or at the community level, as illustrated by public health alerts in New York City to notify clinicians about viral gastrointestinal illness (1). Multiple studies have documented that newer syndromic surveillance systems can recognize the onset of the annual influenza season (2), but it is not clear what these systems add to existing syndrome-based systems that track "influenzalike illness" as part of a larger array of influenza-specific surveillance methods. While Dembek et al. note that syndromic surveillance has detected multiple outbreaks that would have been otherwise unrecognized, Sichel et al. observed that syndromic surveillance did not detect outbreaks recognized through more traditional means (1). This discrepancy emphasizes the need to further assess the characteristics of epidemics and surveillance systems that favor detection by using syndromic methods.
We recommend distinguishing between the increasing practice, prompted by concerns about bioterrorism, of syndromic surveillance for epidemic detection and the longstanding and common practice of using syndrome-based case definitions in public health surveillance. Such case definitions have been used in situations in which a wide net is cast to identify potential cases of a particular disease (e.g., acute flaccid paralysis as part of global efforts to eradicate poliomyelitis , liver disease associated with a new therapy for latent tuberculosis infection , and inhalational anthrax in New Jersey in 2001, after bioterrorism-related cases were clinically detected ), when resource and infrastructure constraints do not allow routine use of laboratory-based definitions (e.g., surveillance for sexually transmitted diseases in infrastructure-weak countries ), and when surveillance is initiated for a new disease of unknown origin (e.g., toxic shock syndrome , AIDS , and severe acute respiratory syndrome [SARS] ). Although SARS surveillance did not represent syndromic surveillance according to this distinction, relationships between health departments and hospitals, fostered in establishing syndromic surveillance, likely facilitated SARS surveillance.
New guidelines offer an approach for evaluating syndromic surveillance systems, including what is learned from follow-up of statistical alarms and whether syndromic surveillance or other methods lead to the earliest detection of outbreaks (10). These guidelines also provide a framework for modeling exercises to test syndromic surveillance under various bioterrorism scenarios, supplementing experience gained from real-life, but typically less severe, seasonal illness or community epidemics. Eventually, this information should be useful in developing guidance for health departments seeking to determine whether and how to implement syndromic surveillance.
