Federal Reserve and Big Banks Team Up On ‘Pilot Exercise’ of ESC scam

Federal Reserve and Big Banks Team Up On ‘Pilot Exercise’ of ESC scam

September 30, 2022

The privately owned Federal Reserve is teaming up with six of the largest banks: JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and Bank of America ( who happen to be part OWNERS of the Fed ), to take steps toward facilitating a CCP-style social credit scoring system.  ESG, which stands for “Environmental, Social, and Governance,” is the marketing of “climate finance,” where consumers and businesses are scored according to their compliance ( or non-compliance ) with hypothetical climate scenarios.

The Fed does not care at all about the environment. ESG is a global bankster ponzi scheme to financially enslave the population and enable a small group of technocratic elites to make far reaching decisions for society. They are prepping this system that can also be demolished at any time. If you haven’t done so already, now is a good time to bail from the big banks, use #cash and do NOT comply. -JD

The Fed said in a statement Thursday:

“Six of the nation’s largest banks will participate in a pilot climate scenario analysis exercise designed to enhance the ability of supervisors and firms to measure and manage climate-related financial risks. Scenario analysis—in which the resilience of financial institutions is assessed under different hypothetical climate scenarios—is an emerging tool to assess climate-related financial risks, and there will be no capital or supervisory implications from the pilot.”

In other words, The Fed is working with the big banks to monitor their ability to comply with the ruling class’s preferred enviro statist technocratic tyranny.

The unaccountable people behind the American money printer claim that this exercise is “exploratory in nature and does not have capital consequences.”

The statement adds that the “scenario analysis can assist firms and supervisors in understanding how climate-related financial risks may manifest and differ from historical experience.”

What exactly does this mean?

The Fed is clearly leaning in to the climate hoax narrative, or the pseudoscientific idea that humans are catastrophically impacting the climate, but not because they somehow care about the environment. The climate narrative is the chief rhetorical facilitator for the ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) movement.

ESG acts as a trojan horse for the continuing centralization of the American financial system. ESG finance, popularized by hyper political asset management behemoths like BlackRock and Vanguard, acts to prevent outsiders from challenging the regime-connected insiders on Wall Street and in Washington, under the guise of acting to manifest a healthier planet. In other words, pro-ESG institutions are committed to attacking free market principles by means of deception, preferring the CCP-style “stakeholder capitalism” that allows for a small group of technocratic elites to make broad determinations about society.

Reckless Spending: Washington Sends Another $1.1 BILLION for Ukraine’s Endless War

Reckless Spending: Washington Sends Another $1.1 BILLION for Ukraine’s Endless War

While our soldiers are being offered  food stamps and the American people are facing major social, environmental, and economic challenges here at home, it is unacceptable for the Biden administration to keep funding Ukraine’s endless war. Bankrupting our economy to “help Ukraine” is a losing strategy.

It’s unlikely that Congress is keeping an accurate accounting, though estimates show that over $70 BILLION has been spent for the Ukraine quagmire. Washington’s reckless spending will not win the war in Ukraine but will increase poverty and debt for Americans, especially for future generations. Congress needs to stop funding for war and start negotiating for peace. -JD

Corruption: Biden Administration Grants $10 BILLION Handout to Jordan from American Taxpayers

Corruption: Biden Administration Grants $10 BILLION Handout to Jordan from American Taxpayers

September 16, 2022  |  Antiwar.com

Is the U.S. federal government addicted to reckless and irresponsible spending?

Even though the State Department is aware that Jordan’s record includes significant human rights abuses such as torture, arbitrary arrest and detention, violence against women, and crimes targeting those who identify as LGBT, Joe Biden signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for $10.15 Billion to Amman over the next seven years.

Funding for Jordan has increased over the past several administrations, with handouts from Obama, Trump, and Biden.

From The Department of State website:

https://www.state.gov/reports/2021-country-reports-on-human-rights-practices/jordan/

 

Jordan is the third largest recipient of free money given away by DC politicians.  The 1st and 2nd highest recipients of U.S. taxpayer money also have tarnished human rights records: Ukraine and Israel. Top recipient Ukraine has banned most political opposition parties and nationalized it’s media while Israel is recognized by many western NGO’s as an apartheid state.

Ayman Safadi, Jordan’s foreign minister, said that the U.S. aid package would help the country deal with their refugee crisis, specifically to build schools, universities and create new jobs. He also said that the money would be used to boost border security.

This fact underscores the hypocrisy and corruption of the Biden administration, that has prioritized the best interests and security of other nations before the USA.  -JD

$15.9 BILLION DOLLARS for Ukraine War / Food Stamps for American Soldiers

 

$15.9 BILLION DOLLARS for Ukraine War / Food Stamps for American Soldiers

September 17, 2022

If it seems like it was just last week that the Biden administration announced they were sending more American taxpayer money to Ukraine for their proxy war against Russia, that’s because they did!

$2.9 billion was pledged last weekend, after over $3 billion was gifted for Zelensky’s quagmire in late August.

Joe Biden’s regime pledged ANOTHER $600 million to Ukraine yesterday. This package brings the total to nearly $15.9 Billion since Biden began acting as president.

The U.S. Army is now recommending food stamps for soldiers who are struggling to feed their families.

While American people, our veterans, and soldiers are facing crisis levels of homelessness and poverty, Biden’s prioritizing of Ukraine’s economy and defense before American’s, is a crime.

International conflicts might very well be resolved with diplomacy but the Biden administration does not appear to be interested in winning the peace or increasing American prosperity. -JD

Flashback 2016: Technocrat John Podesta Hid Personal Connection To Energy Company With Russian Connections

 

September 8, 2022 | Flashback 2016

The return of John Podesta to the White House is cause to question and reflect upon the continuum of corruption within our councils of government.

A 2016 report revealed that Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, was on the board of a small energy company that received $35 Million from a Putin-connected Russian government fund. The report also exposes details of collusion between Russian and American corporations in a technology transfer project overseen by Clinton’s State Department that may have significantly enhanced Russian military technical capabilities.  -JD

Technocrat John Podesta Hid Personal Connection To Energy Company With Russian Connections

August 1, 2016 | By Stephen Bannon and Peter Schweizer |  Technocracy News |

Podesta is Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager and a prominent member of the Trilateral Commission. He is 100 percent dedicated to the implementation of Technocracy, aka Sustainable Development or Green Economy. Collusion runs deep. TN Editor

 


Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta sat on the board of a small energy company alongside Russian officials that received $35 million from a Putin-connected Russian government fund, a relationship Podesta failed to fully disclose on his federal financial disclosures as required by law.

That’s one of the many revelations from a 56-page report released late Sunday titled “From Russia with Money: Hillary Clinton, the Russian Reset, and Cronyism” by the non-partisan government watchdog group, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI). Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon holds the same title in GAI and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as GAI’s president.

As part of her duties during the so-called Russian reset, then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton led the way on U.S. involvement in a Russian government technology initiative that was intended to be the Russian equivalent of America’s Silicon Valley known as Skolkovo. The “innovation city,” located outside Moscow, has some 30,000 workers in state-of-the-art facilities under strict government control. As Slate described it in 2013, “In some ways, Skolkovo is eerily reminiscent of Soviet utopian city-building projects.”

According to the GAI report, Clinton’s State Dept. recruited U.S. tech giants like Google, Cisco, Intel. Indeed, out of 28 U.S., European, and Russian companies that participated in Skolkovo, 17 of them were Clinton Foundation donors or paid for speeches by Bill Clinton.

However, as involvement in Skolkovo by Clinton cronies increased, so, too, did the danger for the technology coming out of the Russian tech mecca to be used for Russian military purposes.

In 2014, the FBI issued what it called “an extraordinary warning” to several technology companies involved with Skolkovo. “The [Skolkovo] foundation may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research development facilities and dual-use technologies with military and commercial application,” warned Lucia Ziobro, the assistant special agent at the FBI’s Boston office. She added: “The FBI believes the true motives of the Russian partners, who are often funded by the government, is to gain access to classified, sensitive, and emerging technology from the companies.”

Colorado Energy Company Locks Thermostats During Heatwave


Colorado Energy Company locks thermostats during heatwave.

When the power company locked thermostats, 22,000 Xcel customers were not able to control the temperature in their homes as heat rose up past 90 degrees earlier this week.

Households not being able to control the temperature in their own homes is a result of so-called, ‘smart meters,’ with thermostats that can be remotely controlled and randomly shut down by the power company.

In the same week, Californians were instructed to avoid charging their electric vehicles to prevent straining the power grid. This advice was given only a week after policy makers voted to ban gasoline-powered cars.

Many are realizing that “green energy” is not necessarily safe, secure, energy efficient, cost effective or reliable, and that the smart grid is really a control grid that is not smart at all. -JD

 


 

Power Company Seizes Control of Thermostats in Colorado During Heatwave

Around 22,000 households in Colorado lost the ability to control their thermostats after the power company seized control of them during a heatwave.

After temperatures soared past 90 degrees, residents were left confused when they tried to adjust their air conditioning and found locked controls displaying a message that said “energy emergency.”

Xcel confirmed to local news station Denver7 that “22,000 customers who had signed up for the Colorado AC Rewards program were locked out of their smart thermostats for hours on Tuesday.”

“I mean, it was 90 out, and it was right during the peak period,” Tony Talarico told the news station. “It was hot.”

Talarico said he is normally able to override the “energy emergency” message, but not on this occasion.

“So, our thermostat was locked in at 78 or 79,” he said.

Biden Requesting $13.7 Billion More in Aid to Ukraine

Zero more dollars should be spent on Ukraine, NATO, or the UN. 

 

Once again, Joe Biden is proposing to steal more money from Americans to finance his Ukraine quagmire. Of course we’d like to help others whenever we can, but bankrupting our economy to save Ukraine is a losing policy AND unconstitutional.

Reprioritizing spending to focus on improving the lives of all Americans is a reasonable approach to addressing present challenges, no matter where one stands on the political spectrum. -JD

 


 

Biden Requesting $13.7 Billion More in Aid to Ukraine

September 3, 2022 | By Rajan Laad | American Thinker 

Just yesterday, Breitbart reported that Biden is asking Congress for $13.7 billion in aid for Ukraine.

The $13.7 billion is purportedly for equipment, intelligence support, and direct budgetary support for Ukraine.

The request is part of a $47.1 billion ‘emergency spending’ package Biden is proposing for relief efforts following recent natural disasters in Kentucky and other states and in response to COVID-19 and monkeypox outbreaks.

Since the beginning of the conflict, Biden has sent more than $13.5 billion in “security assistance” to Ukraine.

Recently on 24 August, which is Ukraine’s Independence Day, Biden announced $3 billion aid package to Ukraine.

Back in May, $40 billion of taxpayer money was approved in aid to Ukraine.

The following is a reminder of the details of the $40 billion.

More than $4 billion was dedicated to ‘international disaster assistance’ in Ukraine.

Almost $15 billion was dedicated to defense operations and maintenance – including $6 billion for the Ukraine Security Assistance and $8.7 billion to replenish stocks of U.S. equipment already sent to Ukraine.

Hundreds of millions of dollars were dedicated to the procurement of missiles, weapons, tracked combat vehicles, ammunition, and aircraft.

Close to $3.9 billion was dedicated to the maintenance of U.S. forces deployed to Europe.

New U.S. Treasury Policy Doesn’t Add Up

New U.S. Treasury Policy Doesn’t Add Up

August 31st, 2022 | Jolie Diane | Image source

In case you missed it, the U.S. Treasury announced[1] a cyber security partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Finance on August 25, 2022.

One may wonder why the U.S. Treasury would be getting involved in cyber security matters or would be inviting a foreign government agency to enter into our economic system.

Cyber security cooperation is not new, as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security ( DHS ) signed[2][3] a joint declaration on cyber defense with Israel back in 2016.

However, let’s keep in mind that the 2020 election disaster featured the DHS[4] in a central role, to “secure cyber security”.  Those familiar with this three letter alphabet agency, brought to us by George Bush Jr., understand the corruption[5] that plagues the Department of Homeland Security.

Additionally, the role of the UN/NATO[6] in American cyber security affairs is unclear.  Another problem, is knowing what partnerships Israel may have that could potentially create conflicts of interest in USA economic affairs and national security.[7]   Will biometric surveillance, social credit scores, 5G,[8] and digital currency be part of the “cyber security” cooperation equation?

Adding together foreign government actors, multiplied by unknown factors, might not necessarily increase America’s cyber security or economic strength.

CARBON CAPTURE PIPELINES = ENVIRONMENTAL IDIOCRACY!

“in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite ”

-President Eisenhower 1961

 

UN Agenda 21/2030 is based on a depopulation program which includes removing carbon dioxide from the environment.   However its necessary to clarify exactly WHAT CO2 ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

CO2 ( carbon dioxide ) that humans exhale, in a non-pollutant.

CO2 ( carbon dioxide that is solid dry ice ) released via cloud seeding and other weather modification activities IS a pollutant.  -JD

 

 


 

CARBON CAPTURE PIPELINES = ENVIRONMENTAL IDIOCRACY!

August 8, 2022 | By Tom DeWeese | American Policy

I have just returned from one of the most important speaking tours I have ever undertaken. In fact, it wasn’t really a speaking tour – I was barnstorming the state of Iowa. I was there to cause trouble and stir up the citizens – AND I DID IT!

You see, in Iowa, along with North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and Nebraska, the push is on to enforce a plan to capture CO2 and bury it in the ground. Of course, the excuse is to protect the earth from Climate Change!

In all of my years of fighting the lies and insane policies of the radical environmental movement, this is without doubt their DUMBEST plan ever – but it’s also one of the MOST DANGEROUS that we have ever faced.

Here’s the scheme. Thousands of acres of privately-owned, food-producing Midwest Corn Belt farmland are targeted for a new 1300-mile long-pipeline. But NOT a pipeline to bring us desperately needed fuel oil. No – the purpose of this pipeline is to capture carbon dioxide and TRANSPORT IT UNDER GROUND!!!!

Two main forces are pushing these Carbon Dioxide Pipelines. They are private companies named Summit Carbon Solutions and Navigator CO2 Ventures. These private companies have already sent out letters to farmers across Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, and North Dakota. Explaining the project, they are saying, “Navigator is proposing to build a large scale carbon capture pipeline system spanning more than 1300 miles across five states in the Midwest…” “The pipeline system… will capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from local facilities before these emissions reach the atmosphere and transport the CO2 safely via pipeline to a permanent and secure underground sequestration site in Illinois.” The letter goes on to explain that “the pipeline will materially reduce the participant’s carbon footprint and further the global goal of carbon neutrality.”

These are private companies. They are not public utilities. Yet, their letter to property owners contains this threat. “We intend to file a petition with the Iowa Utilities Board for permission to build the pipeline.” It goes on to say, “Our goal is to reach voluntary agreements with all landowners along the Project route, though if we are unable to do so, we may need to request the right of eminent domain (condemnation) from the Board.” So, the message is clear to property owners… be real nice and give up your land voluntarily, or we will just take it!

Just as I’ve been warning for over thirty years, all of this is part of the plot as called for in Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, The Green New Deal, and now the Great Reset. Clear back in 1992, when Agenda 21 was first introduced, its radical environmental promoters at the United Nations described it as “A blueprint for the reorganization of human society.”

Now, America’s farmers are on the front lines of the ground war to enforce that reorganization. And this is just the beginning to get it all started. As their land is confiscated, farmers won’t be allowed to grow food. No crops will be grown. The pipeline won’t be placed on the edges of the farm property — but will drive right through the middle, rendering much of the rest of the farm’s land useless. The first step in creating the pipeline will be to rip up the topsoil. Farmers are promised, if they will sign an easement agreement to voluntarily give up the land, in the first year they will be paid eighty percent of what they would have brought in for crop production. Sixty percent is promised for the second year, and forty percent for the third year. Little has been mentioned for what is to come after that.

As less and less farmland is available, the Great Reset scheme is to grow most of our food inside factories, providing only synthetic substitutes like the fake meat that is being marketed now. It’s interesting to note that, again, Bill Gates is right in the middle of this scheme. As he is busy buying up millions of acres of farmland, he’s also one of the biggest promoters of synthetic beef.

The Climate Change threat is a complete hoax, designed to create fear to get you to voluntarily give up your liberties. There is no scientific evidence whatsoever to back up the claims of man-made global warming.

Along with the drive for the carbon capture pipeline to eliminate CO2, there is a separate drive to lock away thousands more acres for wind and solar farms, in order to eliminate all oil and gas energy.

One plan calls for the locking way of seventeen million acres of solar farms in the Midwest to replace coal and gas power plants. It’s interesting to note that those coal and gas power plants take up only a few acres.

The solar panels use large amounts of plastic, which is made from oil. In addition, large amounts of copper are necessary for the wire infrastructure underneath. Plus, under those rows and rows of solar panels over thousand of acres is cement to cover the wires. Nothing grows under them – no grass or small animals. Valuable farmland destroyed.

In addition, plans also call for 250 million acres of wind farms. Wind turbines need huge amounts of oil in order to turn. They also need large amounts of copper, limestone, steel, aluminum, cobalt, and nickel to produce a single wind turbine. Some experts say that it will take more energy to produce a single wind turbine that it will create in its lifetime.

Wind and solar power are jokes – but they’re much worse than jokes to our environment. Picture 250 million acres of wind turbine forests. Gone will be scenic views, or peaceful land, and in the air, nothing will be flying as millions of birds, raptors, and endangered species will be destroyed. All in the name of protecting the environment.

Meanwhile, if the sun isn’t shining or the wind blowing, no energy is produced. In fact, if the goal is reached and all power is to come from wind and solar, it will supply only about four percent of the energy the nation needs.

Today, the same forces behind the wind and solar scheme are pushing the carbon capture pipeline. The most important food-producing farmland in the nation is about to be confiscated – all under the insane lie of environmental protection.

But here are some scientific facts that you won’t hear from these so-called science experts. Scientists, including Dr. Lee Merritt, an Iowa-based CO2 expert, reports that the earth is actually suffering from a CO2 shortage. The earth needs an average of 1,600 Parts Per Million (PPM) of CO2 in the atmosphere to support us. Currently, we have 410 PPM. In other words, nature is facing a CO2 starvation. Plants – including those we need to feed us — won’t be able to grow.

In addition, the massive deployment of wind and solar farms over thousands of acres may well create the beginnings of a new dust bowel that will destroy even more farmland.

And there is this shocking news. Carbon capture pipelines have now been proven to be major health hazards to people living close to them. A carbon capture pipeline in Mississippi ruptured near the small town of Satartia. A green cloud descended over the town, blocking oxygen and creating a fowl smell. Dozens of people became disoriented, nauseated, and dazed. Many collapsed in their homes. Even car engines shut off, because the also need oxygen to run. Months later, some people are still reporting mental fogginess. And first responders had no idea how to deal with it.

But the drive is on to build more of these dangerous, useless, and totally unnecessary carbon capture pipelines. Private companies like Summit Carbon Solutions and Navigator Co2 Ventures have no real reason to build them except that there is money in the Biden Infrastructure bill offering big bucks.

Opposition across Iowa and other affected states is strong. Public meetings designed to sell the idea are filled with citizens and property owners who stand opposed to the scheme. Many county supervisor boards have written letters to the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) to express opposition. However, their commitment to a plan to stop it is weak. Some county officials have already surrendered to this tyranny, saying, “There’s not much we can do. It looks like it’s just going to happen.” One newspaper reported that “local governments have no legal power to stop carbon dioxide pipelines.” They are wrong!

The U.S. made a breakthrough battery discovery — then gave the technology to China

 

The U.S. made a breakthrough battery discovery — then gave the technology to China

August 3, 2022 |  By Courtney Flatt and Laura Sullivan  |  NPR

When a group of engineers and researchers gathered in a warehouse in Mukilteo, Wash., 10 years ago, they knew they were onto something big. They scrounged up tables and chairs, cleared out space in the parking lot for experiments and got to work.

They were building a battery — a vanadium redox flow battery — based on a design created by two dozen U.S. scientists at a government lab. The batteries were about the size of a refrigerator, held enough energy to power a house, and could be used for decades. The engineers pictured people plunking them down next to their air conditioners, attaching solar panels to them, and everyone living happily ever after off the grid.

“It was beyond promise,” said Chris Howard, one of the engineers who worked there for a U.S. company called UniEnergy. “We were seeing it functioning as designed, as expected.”

But that’s not what happened. Instead of the batteries becoming the next great American success story, the warehouse is now shuttered and empty. All the employees who worked there were laid off. And more than 5,200 miles away, a Chinese company is hard at work making the batteries in Dalian, China.
