    Jerry….When it comes to mandatory vaccinations , everyone needs to be aware of the Nuremberg Code of 1947………..

      Aug 22, 2020 22:44 AM

      I personally am not particularly interested in his book!

      Aug 22, 2020 22:47 AM

      Yup, you are known by the company you keep.

    Aug 22, 2020 22:28 AM
      Aug 22, 2020 22:34 AM

      Like I said……….SCAM……

        Aug 22, 2020 22:02 AM

        Goes back to the CIA……..planting journalist in MSN.

      Aug 22, 2020 22:05 AM

      OWL>>>>>>>ARE YOU GOING TO WATCH THIS >>>>>>> ?????????????????????????????
      You might want desire to watch this one and consider what LARRY has been saying….JMO

        Aug 22, 2020 22:09 AM

        Not against Freida,…..just Big Pharma and Oil Rockefeller

          Aug 22, 2020 22:41 AM

          If you read his comments you will see that he is personally very vindictive towards her and, trust me, he is way off base and will never change his mind.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:43 AM

            I did read a few, that may have been a little testy…

            Aug 22, 2020 22:45 AM

            I just thought Larry, was well versed, ….and just trying to help….with the understanding of the entire BIG PICTURE…..

            Aug 22, 2020 22:34 PM

            Al, Larry gave you a lot of facts.

        Aug 22, 2020 22:39 AM

        Happy to watch. I tried to make peace with Larry, but he seems to have a major problem with Frieda even when she agrees with him. That, I have no time for at all. I handle anger just the way the Lord teaches to handle it as I am sure you do Jerry.

          Aug 22, 2020 22:47 AM


        Aug 22, 2020 22:48 AM

        Giving $1.6 Billion to the vaccine…..?

          Aug 22, 2020 22:33 AM

          Do you think every vaccine is bad?
          Do you realize Trump put the military in charge of the vaccines?
          If you don’t trust the man after all he’s done so far, you never will.
          Personally, I don’t think there will be a vaccine.
          Trump sets everyone up, so that the sheep see what’s happening, without him having to explain or convince. As seen every day in real time.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:36 AM

            Did you go over the info on the tape….concerning vaccines….
            MICC……has already been taken over…..since 1947, CIA/OSS
            Trust but verify…..
            The sheep are to stupid , to do the home work required to see what is going on.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:40 AM

            Trumpster is better than the alternative…..but, I wait to see how Durham and Barr(which I have great concerns about) hand any of the future uncoverings….

            Aug 22, 2020 22:41 AM

            hand to handle…..
            BTW…..great videos….you supplied….

            Aug 22, 2020 22:14 AM

            Trump better than the alternative? ..uh..yeah…! The alternative is gun grab- fema camp- food lines and communism.

            Trump is exposing the deep state and shadow government. The timing of those two videos I posted is not a coincidence. They great awakening is happening, and there’s nothing the cabal can do about it. The sheep are waking up in droves ever minute of every day. Trump is just accelerating the process. Without someone as strong as Trump, we never could have seen these awesome changes we are seeing. He will (and has been in case you haven’t noticed) give the power back to the people. Which is bringing back the republic.

            Better than the alternative is the understatement of the century, ‘literally’.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:29 AM

            Not sure he has given the power back to the people,….Yet…..
            I see a lot of damage done…..but, that might have to have been done for the SHOCK FACTOR on the sheeple…..We will see.
            As, I said a few years ago, hope he is not the Trojan Horse…..

            Aug 22, 2020 22:47 AM

            There’s a long list of things (huge things) that he’s done to give you back your sovereignty. It’s best you sit up a pay attention. (even tho you pay attention more than most).

            I can tell people in here pay little attention when you see such little comments about ShadowGate. It really is unbelievable.

            I guess I’m lucky having friends that actually ‘do pay attention’.

            Either way, everyone will see the benefits of the great awakening. Some are just slower than others to see what’s happening.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:49 AM

            Charster…….I am the one…..that promoted the Shadow Gate material….so, I am paying attentions……

            Aug 22, 2020 22:51 AM

            Same with the Act of 1871…… 🙂
            Now the hair dryer one, set us back a little…. 🙂

            Aug 22, 2020 22:01 PM

            People have gone to sweat lodges and sauna to get rid of all types of viruses. Heat does in fact kill it.

            Getting out of TPP, the climate accord, NAFTA and lowering taxes “should have” given you a clue. Not to mention, exposing all the deep state corruption..
            C’mon, wake up.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:05 PM

            Remember……..I defended you on the hair dryer…..I thought it was a good idea……
            There is a lot that has come out on the virus , over the last few months…, maybe the hair dryer will work…. 🙂

            Aug 22, 2020 22:08 PM

            I do not want to go toe to toe here,……..
            but,…..Shutting down the economy…..and $6 Trillion more dollars…in debt, …
            Is concerning.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:11 PM

            As I said…….We shall see, and as far as I am concerned,….
            He can continue, …because there is nothing else, until we
            END THE FED, and GET TERM LIMITS…..

            Aug 22, 2020 22:22 PM

            Well, I’m not sure about the hair dryer, but heat does kill viruses.

            As for the fed: it’s been nationalized for months. That why you see , instead of, what used to be dot com.
            The fed won’t close its doors. What matters is, that the families don’t control our money supply. You don’t have to worry about the debt either. The debt will be off-set.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:34 PM

            The Board of Governors and the Federal Reserve Banks annually prepare and release audited financial statements reflecting balances (as of December 31) and income and expenses for the year then ended. The Federal Reserve Bank financial statements also include the accounts and results of operations of one limited liability company (LLC) that has been consolidated with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:49 PM

            For the first time in the history of the Federal Reserve, it has signed on to a plan with Congress to nationalize the unmanageable debts of global banks and other multinational corporations and put the U.S. taxpayer on the hook for the losses. Conducting the bulk of these programs will be the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, known as the New York Fed, which is a private institution owned by (wait for it) multinational banks.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:56 PM

            Today’s unprecedented nationalization of capital markets is the end result of the moral hazard Congress created by allowing the New York Fed, owned by multinational banks, to oversee the bulk of $29 trillion that the New York Fed created out of thin air during the last financial crisis and used to bail out its own shareholder banks and foreign global banks that were interconnected via derivative contracts that were blowing up.

            The definition of a multinational bank is one that physically operates in more than one country.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:08 PM
            Aug 22, 2020 22:28 PM

            Load all the debt instruments, derivatives and junk bonds on the fed and then bankrupt it? Sounds plausible, cause that is what’s going on. It’s also saving the exchange. At least for now.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:29 PM

            Ebo………Good one……

            Aug 22, 2020 22:38 PM

            Jerry, see my post below about the vaccine mandate you cited.

            If the goooberment mandates vaccines…what will OWL do? What will Jimmy do? What will you and your kids do?

            Unless people raise hell now, there may be a needle coming to them in the fall or winter…if they want to be able to travel, keep their jobs, not get fined…and maybe even jailed.

            Aug 25, 2020 25:00 AM


      Aug 22, 2020 22:37 AM

      I have to repeat that because of my and Kathy’s situation we are taking no chances. That is just for us.

        Aug 22, 2020 22:48 AM

        Better safe , than sorry……..

        Aug 22, 2020 22:09 PM

        If they force you to get a vaccination will you?

      Aug 22, 2020 22:16 AM

      GOOGLE and Fact CHECk…………seems to be a JOKE… I said before , who is checking the fact checkers…….We have a real serious problem going forward……

    Aug 22, 2020 22:40 AM

    Plandemic above ☝🏻, and this one , ShadowGate, are the two biggest issues of our current time. (IMO)

      Aug 22, 2020 22:51 AM

      Great Repost…..people should watch both videos……..jmo

    Aug 22, 2020 22:08 AM

    Are we about to return to normal ?

    Re: Segment 3…..I’m not black, But I am not normal in my hours of sleeping.
    I live alone and sleep when tired, typically for 3 or 4 hours, but when I awake I get up and continue reading or go about my life. That means that I keep weird hours.
    Before I lost sufficient sight to safely drive, I used to get stopped by the police occassionally, FOR NO APPARENT REASONS….Asked what I was doing or for driving license. It never occured to me that the police were doing anything other than their job….making their presence known at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. (Getting stopped after bar closing time seem to happen frequently, even though, I don’t drink at bars except when out of town on vacation.)

    now I don’t tend to shop at those hours because taxis are not so easy to get at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. If you have open 24 hour grocery stores, however, they are great hours to shop, because check-out is super quick and you don’t waste time.

    Aug 22, 2020 22:29 AM

    It has been over 50 years since we had any RACIST LAWS.
    What more can we do?

    Sorry, this is going to make me look racist, but perhaps the black population should look at themselves.
    Why do they commit more crime ?
    Are police being racist, or are they playing the odds ?

    I’m sorry, that it is not possible, not to see a difference in color or in race…..but that’s a fact of life. I know I try to treat people rqually, until I know their character, and then I do make judgment. But that is,I hope, based on experience not race.
    (there are lots of young white guys in Silicon Valley, I passionately distrust, but that’s because of their political beliefs….nothing to do with them being white.)
    Calvin was most articulate; he should do well in life.

    Aug 22, 2020 22:24 AM

    Ebolan posted this video with Peter Schiff, Mark Skousen and Stephen Moore yesterday and it is a must-listen. Within the first 12 minutes or so, Peter pulls no punches telling it exactly like it is and all agree that Trump is a big government, big spending, Keynesian and not a free market guy.

    If only the masses understood that Trump’s huge spending amounts to a huge tax increase and that Biden would be even worse, much worse.

      Aug 22, 2020 22:26 AM

      This cartoon from FDR’s time applies equally to Trump (and Obama, and Bush, etc.):

      Aug 22, 2020 22:28 AM

      Inflation comes from one place and one place only, the central bank.
      Milton Friedman was no Austrian but he did understand inflation…

        Aug 22, 2020 22:17 AM

        That video…………should be shown at all the HOME SCHOOLS……sure not going to see it in BOARD OF EDUCATION SCHOOLS (for dummies)

          Aug 22, 2020 22:13 PM

          We have an education problem in the U.S……Nothing to do with home schooling. (Actually, I believe most parents are not competent to home school.)
          Some food for thought:

          Yes, it’s not just inner cities that are a problem.
          And make no mistake, inner cities are a real problem.
          (Where the majority of parents don’t give a damn……That’s a serious problem.)

          Aug 22, 2020 22:01 PM

          THE BOARD OF EDUCATION…….is perverted…..
          IF, they were to view the video, ….which will never be shown in STATE/Federal Schools.,
          they would learn what is going on.

        Aug 22, 2020 22:00 PM

        It simply means the complete collapse will happen.
        M Oliver @ Jay Taylor was bringing up the idea states could end up succeeding.

        I recall years ago articles saying a collapse of the nation and succession of the states would eventually happen, the idea has been forgotten about for years, guess its back on the table.

        Cant happen soon enough imo.

        I just hope it happens fast enough the neocons dont start the war they’re after.

      Aug 22, 2020 22:00 PM

      And people argue with Schiff about inflation lecturing him and us that there is little to no inflation. Have these A holes been in a grocery store recently? Guess not. All they do is believe the total bull sh*t criminal goooberment numbers.

        Aug 23, 2020 23:54 PM

        Even some good guys who are not shills or apologists have been foolish enough to say that there is no inflation. It’s mind-boggling that so many are so dense.

    Things that make you wonder:

    An anecdotal story……

      Aug 22, 2020 22:43 PM

      USPS: crisis or not?

      Lack of voter IDs is more important.
      How to validate a vote and yet maintain anonimity is a problem,
      just as eliminating illegal voting or feaudulent vote collecting is a problem.

      The real problem, however, is that each party only wants to gain an advantage…..not to only act in the best interest of the country. Power corrupting as usual.

      Aug 22, 2020 22:20 PM

      Thomas diLorenzo says that science in physics is pretty well settled.
      He is seriously mistaken with reqards to unified field theory and also simply gravity at the relativistic limit.
      The once-existing 7 versions of string theory have all now run into problems.

        Aug 22, 2020 22:38 PM

        Would his comment apply to these?:

        Either way, his overarching point about the left and their “settled science” was correct.

          Aug 22, 2020 22:17 PM

          No one would deny that Classical physics is correct. But it has limits.
          It does not describe quantum phenomena. It does not describe physical behavior in any of the limits of small, large or fast moving.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:06 PM

            Thank you

            Aug 22, 2020 22:41 PM

            Interestingly, dark matter was postulated to explain the expansion of the universe.
            There have now been over 20 attempts to measure/detect dark matter, and every experiment has been a failure. Thus we have a problem in physics.

            I don’t think many knowledgeable people believe in dark matter any more.

            I suspect the problem lies in the calculations of magnetodynamics of charged particles moving throughout the universe, but that’s only a guess.

            Aug 22, 2020 22:52 PM

            All very interesting as well as over my head. Thanks.

    “As you know, since April, we have had infected cases from abroad. They showed symptoms in China, but were infected in different places all over the world, not in China. We obtained over 20 different virus strains from them, including those from the United States, Europe, and different Middle East countries. Then we used the immune serum of our vaccine to neutralize these virus strains.” – Yin Weidong, CEO of Sinovac Biotech

    The company has said they will be able to manufacture 300 million doses of the vaccine annually and have already come to an agreement to supply Indonesia.

    Aug 22, 2020 22:31 PM


    …one way or another…

    OOTB posted the ZH article about WestVagina planning mandatory COVID vaccination.

    I’ve heard the Fed Thugs will if they don’t force you will fine you similar to the Obammy fine on your income. They may also make it impossible to travel on an airliner or enter any gooooberment building. And the could withhold feral funds for state goooberments that don’t mandate it or apply similar penalties.

    Already one of the companies I work with is saying they won’t re-open their offices until there’s a vaccine. I take that to mean if you want to keep your job you’d better get vaccinated.

    What will you boys do if the goooberment mandates it? Not being vaccinated will probably mean being fined, being unable to travel (at least by air) and possible job loss (probable for many).

      Aug 22, 2020 22:34 PM

      Also, talk of goooberment fining or other penalties if employers don’t force their employees to get vacinated.

      This is all happening very quickly as some are saying a vaccine will be available early next year, maybe sooner.

      Aug 23, 2020 23:53 AM

      EBO…….States might have the right…….but, you can leave the state. Do not take any benefits from the state, and the state will not have control over you. …according to what I understand.
      You need to read about the STRAWMAN….your corporate number, social security card..which in most cases you were not told concerning your liability, and most likely did not agree. Under the constitution you are a FREE MAN, but, if you agree to the bondage of the state and federal govt., by accepting what they offer, then that is another situation.
      Above are general comments, and I am sure there is a whole lot more info. which needs to be discovered….SGT REPORT and some others have information containing my statements above….I am no authority on this issue, but, have been reading about it for some time.
      and since, we have among us trolls …..that like to pick things apart, without providing any information to the contrary ….I will leave it at that……..JMO

        Aug 23, 2020 23:03 AM

        God given rights by the Constitution….Certain rights, that the govt can not take form you….BUT….and since the constitution has been added , and abused, illegally,….people have adapted , that is the way it is…..
        If, you take from the govt, you have a contract with the wrong doers….or you have accepted their terms of indenture…..
        You body, is your property……..not the GOVTs., under the constition.
        Do not give them permission….

          Aug 23, 2020 23:05 AM

          Nit Picking begin….this was just a summary….which we could write a book….JMO.

          Aug 23, 2020 23:23 AM

          I tell you Jerry…it’s coming…there’s going to be a big push this fall and if not this fall then this winter for mandatory vaccination. The evil media is starting to push for it. Of course, it has nothing to do with health and everything to do with power, control and money.

          If the vaccine works why would anyone care if I don’t get vaccinated? Those who complain but get the vaccine would be safe from COVID, right? And if the vaccine is safe why will the drug companies get complete legal immunity?

    Whether or not to get vaccinated is not a huge concern of mine. However, what happens when they mandate that everyone must take the mark of the beast?

    Aug 23, 2020 23:20 AM

    They won’t tell you the foreign government behind crooked Hillary was Russia, but it was.

    And Russia side-stepped the laws by paying ridiculously high “speakers fees” to Bill and other “fees” to Hillary, and making donations to the fraudulent Clinton Foundation.

    Aug 23, 2020 23:23 AM

    Then the democrats “PROJECTED” falsely their criminal behavior against Trump.
    hobbling Trump with 3 years of bogus investigations and costing U.S. Taxpayers ten of millions of wasted dollars.

    Aug 23, 2020 23:58 AM

    Chinese accounting standards like the U.S. Government, seem somewhat arbitrary and often would not pass scrutiny of an external audit.

    i.e. fail to meet true listing standards on stockmarkets in the US.

            And can you get the tapes there??? 🙂

            Aug 23, 2020 23:27 PM

            Hah! Jerry…you got to see this…there was once a Penceville in Indiana…and no it is called Kilmore…coincidence??? Apropriate name…for anyone challenging the Deep State…and Pence…

            AND JERRY…IT’S IN CLINTON COUNTY! You can’t make this sh*t up!

            Aug 23, 2020 23:29 PM

            Kilmore is an unincorporated community in Union Township, Clinton County, Indiana. The town was laid out in 1854 by Abner C. Pence and for twenty years was known as Penceville

            Aug 23, 2020 23:30 PM

            Clinton County…where the bodies are…

            Aug 23, 2020 23:31 PM

            I tell you Jerry…I think I will stick to Gas City…and stay out of Clinton County… 🙂

            Aug 23, 2020 23:41 PM

            Kilmore….might have to change the name back…….they are killing us….

            Aug 23, 2020 23:45 PM

            Jerry…I will listen to the CASH tape…but why does it start at 3:19? Should I start at the beginning?

            Aug 23, 2020 23:47 PM

            McKinney…goes after the missing money…and the Israel “aid.”

            No wonder she got the boot.

            Well, at least she’s still alive.

            Aug 23, 2020 23:49 PM

            Make sure you saw the first 3:19 of it…ridiculous…criminality…surprised McKinney isn’t dead…but the Deep State knows…they are untouchable…so they let her live.

            Aug 23, 2020 23:59 PM

            Ebo……..start at the beginning……make sure you do not miss anything….

            Aug 23, 2020 23:00 PM

            ONE BIG CON JOB>…….nobody votes for anyone…..

            Aug 23, 2020 23:03 PM


            Ziocons…slugs…dual citizenship…OWL MUST WATCH IT!

            Aug 23, 2020 23:04 PM

            Owl…is interviewing the wrong McKinney….and he needs to interview Fitts…

            Aug 23, 2020 23:53 PM

            I watch the Corbett report.

            If the Fed wasn’t stealing for the bankers, the politicians would be stealing more for themselves.
            I understand what is going on. I just believe the Fed is less malevalent to the country than politicians. The deep state and bureaucracy know what is happening.

            But we are NOT going to pay the National Debt EVER.
            In the meantime everybody in the US lives at a higher standard than they deserve, until the system cfashes.

            Aug 23, 2020 23:14 PM

            That will be either by, Hyper Inflation, or Debt Jubilee….
            Debt Jubilee, I do not think so, I use to but, there seems to be the ones
            that believe in a Jubilee for themselves, and no gentile is going to part take
            in their Jubilee……

            Aug 23, 2020 23:26 PM

            If the Fed wasn’t stealing for the bankers, the politicians would be stealing more for themselves.

            It’s every person for themselves. Anyone who willfully pays taxes is brainwashed or an idiot.

    Aug 23, 2020 23:05 PM

    Check out the middle name of the RNC chairman…..EBO…….Trumpster said she was ok…..hummmm……I thought he did not like ROMNEY……Mitt Romey’s niece…..LOL

      Aug 23, 2020 23:05 PM

      Chair person…..

      Aug 23, 2020 23:12 PM

      Ridiculous…Trump should fire her…or at least try to…but what can you expect when he brings in Bolton?

        Aug 23, 2020 23:25 PM

        Have to tie the names together……and you can get a big laugh……
        Sheeple are getting fleeced every second……

          Aug 23, 2020 23:47 PM

          Jerry…remember the BLM demons…and the raccoon…did you hear this??? It’s what Lou had to say about it…

            Aug 23, 2020 23:27 PM

            Wonder if OWL has raccoons in his bible study, too.

            Aug 23, 2020 23:06 PM

            It is a shame that we are all not in that particular Bible Study. My Brothers are not only devout but, also also genuine no bull Christians. Walk the walk; talk the talk; and constantly study the word.

            Aug 23, 2020 23:29 PM

            BLM…is a marxist organization…so it’s no surprise their follows would do something like that…

            Aug 23, 2020 23:00 PM


            Here is the link to Lou if the other one doesn’t work

            Aug 23, 2020 23:53 PM

            Sick ….people have lost it…..

          Aug 23, 2020 23:43 PM

          thanks Ebo…..I will check it out……just finished with Rick Adams…..really some interesting info….

      Aug 23, 2020 23:27 PM

      The odds favor hyperinflation.

      Historically countries always create more money and the system collapses by inflation…..OR when the money is low in value countries also get conquered because they can no longer afford sufficient defense.

        Aug 23, 2020 23:59 PM

        As, I said above…..Hyperinflation….I ruled out Jubilee…so, I agree….or you agree with me….

    Aug 23, 2020 23:21 PM

    By the way, I now understand where DiLorenzo, an economist, not a historian, was coming from about Lincoln.
    If you take a position that there is nothing special about the U.S., I can understand that one could take a postion the the deaths in the Civil War were not worth it.

    I, however, believe that pre-Obama the U.S. was unique as a country.
    It was and may still be a country where anyone with brains and hard work or a good idea can rise higher than in any other country. As close to a democratic meritocracy as any country has ever been.

      Aug 23, 2020 23:47 PM

      I understood, from one of the later video…….they said he was an Historian as well as an Economist…..
      I think if, you study some history, concerning the civil war, Jackson banking bust of 1837,
      Greenback of Lincoln, Act of 1871(on wiki has been delelted) Woody Wilson , Fed.Res Act.
      Rockefeller , Standard Oil, Ford Motor company…….I could go on……

        Aug 23, 2020 23:04 PM

        A plethora of con jobs our there, my friend!

      Aug 23, 2020 23:43 PM

      DiLorenzo is very much a historian, I can assure you. Even wikipedia lists his fields as economic history, American history, and Abraham Lincoln. Tom Woods is a Ph.D. historian (Harvard; Colombia) and he will tell you that DiLorenzo is the authority on Lincoln.

      Read and scrutinize DiLorenzo’s books on Lincoln and you will see the problem with Lincoln and the cult of Lincoln that has stupidly deified him for the last century. Dishonest Abe was much worse than no good if you’re a Jeffersonian and fan of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

        Aug 23, 2020 23:56 PM

        DiLorenzo, is a very interesting and informative…..Gives a whole different slant on Lincoln,…which I think you have mentioned before.

          Aug 23, 2020 23:08 PM

          I’m not a historian, just a reader of vast quantities of writings. I have had an interest in archeology for 50 years.
          But let me ask two questions:
          If the Union of the states is voluntary…..i.e. If states could choose to leave. How come there are no instructions or details in the Constitution or even the earlier articles of confederation of how to deal with trade or defence if a state should choose to leave?

          The answer is, of course, that DiLorenzo is wrong. The Union, once created, is not considered voluntary.

          Further, imagine a splitting of the U.S. into two separate countries: The North U.S. and the South U.S., in which the South had slavery and the North abolish slavery.
          Do you think that could actually, practically work with trade between the two countries ?

          Or do you think the South, with its slave labor might undercut the prices of production in the North, just as China has provided cheap goods, destroying the US productive economy before Trump became President?

            Aug 23, 2020 23:55 PM

            Your understanding of history needs as much work as your understanding of the principles your country was founded on. So, I suggest you pose your questions to Tom Woods; I’m sure he’ll be happy to help you out.

            You’re running on denial and cognitive dissonance just like 90% of the population.

        Aug 23, 2020 23:01 PM

        I did not realize that Tom Woods had those educational credentials. Good for him.
