Standing on the Precipice of Martial Law
In my recent paper Why Assume There Will Be a 2020 Election?, I took the opportunity of today’s multifaceted crisis in order to revisit an important Wall Street-funded coup d’état effort of 1933-34.
As I explained in that location, this bankers’ coup was luckily exposed by a patriotic general named Smedley Darlington Butler during one of the darkest moments of America and profoundly changed the course of history.
The Deep State Plot Against JFK
The danger of World War and a military coup arose again during the short-lived administration of John F. Kennedy who found himself locked in a life or death struggle not with Russia, but with the Military Industrial Complex that had become dominated by the many Dr. Strangeloves of the Joint Chief of Staff and CIA who fanatically believed that America could win a nuclear war with Russia.
Kennedy’s valiant efforts to achieve dialogue with his Soviet counterparts, move towards peace in Vietnam, support of colonial liberation, promotion of space exploration and advocacy of a Nuclear Test Ban treaty made him a target of the Deep State of his time.
During this period, this effort was led from the top by JFK’s two most powerful American opponents: Allan Dulles (director of the CIA) and General Lyman Lemnitzer (head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), both of whom were proponents of pre-emptive nuclear war, architects of the Bay of Pigs regime change trap and advocates of Operation Northwoods (an ultimate “inside job” precursor to 9/11 which JFK subverted).

Economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis project the job losses from the US recession could reach 47 million and push America’s unemployment rate to 32.1 percent this is 7% higher than the peak experienced during the first great depression. Making the 2020 depression the greatest depression. In 2019 household debt surged and reached the peak last seen in 2007 before the great recession. Some have fallen under the spell that we were in the greatest economy ever and that’s because you have heard it enough to know every line of the script. However, signs of economic stress have been present for a long time. We also see food banks across the country have been experiencing lines that are miles long reminiscent of the bread lines seen during the great depression except for this time they are in their cars. The lines continue to grow as more people are losing their jobs. It’s clear what we have been witnessing is unprecedented with people struggling just to secure a meal. Many food banks have seen an increase in demand of over 800%.
New York’s working-class citizens, essential to the economy, are the most vulnerable amid the ongoing pandemic, due to poor healthcare services in the areas where they live.
Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert look at the supply chain of risk, in which risk gets dumped into pension funds and unsuspecting Main Streeters, who pay with inflation and taxes for the bad bets taken by Wall Street.
Max points to gerrymandering policies, where political subdivisions are created within a state or a region to allow for political manipulation, for the interests of the wealthy to be protected and the interests of the poor to be continuously exploited.
He gives one example of financial gerrymandering as a pension fund which is located in the poor neighborhood, “because there’s no way to protect itself from derivative risk reassignment into their pension account.”
That reward is kept by the hedge funds and is dumped into pension funds, he says, adding: “Pension funds are toxic waste dumps of risk, this is financial gerrymandering.”
Days after video footage surfaced showing groups of migrant men ignoring social distancing measures and ridiculing the police officers trying to enforce them, illegal migrants from the Moria camp on the Greek island have struck again, chopping down 5,000 olive trees.
The destruction of these olive trees, which can take 65 to 80 years to reach stable yields, is being viewed as an assault on Greek history, culture, and identity, as well as an attack against the island’s local economy, the Greek City Times reports.
The history of the novel coronavirus based upon a detective’s research:
News outlets are good sources for specific growth trends and day-by-day increases, particularly when there’s local context for how a region is responding. But if you want to track the raw mathematical progress of the pandemic, you may need something more specific. There are plenty of raw figures to look at — tests executed, confirmed cases, hospitalizations, deaths — and each one can be tracked over time or against total population numbers. If you look at the numbers right, you can get a sense of how well a particular region is doing at containing an outbreak. But that takes the right graph and the right perspective on exactly what the numbers mean.
To that end, we’ve put together some of the most helpful public resources — and some factors to keep in mind when you check them.
