Digital Kill Switches: How Tyrannical Governments Stifle Political Dissent

John & Nisha Whitehead

“No president from either party should have the sole power to shut down or take control of the internet or any other of our communication channels during an emergency.”
Senator Rand Paul

What’s to stop the U.S. government from throwing the kill switch and shutting down phone and internet communications in a time of so-called crisis?

After all, it’s happening all over the world.

Communications kill switches have become tyrannical tools of domination and oppression to stifle political dissent, shut down resistance, forestall election losses, reinforce military coups, and keep the populace isolated, disconnected and in the dark, literally and figuratively.

As the Guardian reports:

From Ukraine to Myanmar, government-run internet outages are picking up pace around the world. In 2021, there were 182 shutdowns in 34 countries… Countries across Africa and Asia have turned to shutdowns in a bid to control behaviour, while India, largely in the conflict-ridden region of Jammu and Kashmir, plunged into digital darkness more times than any other last year… Civil unrest in Ethiopia and Kazakhstan has triggered internet shutdowns as governments try to prevent political mobilisation and stop news about military suppression from emerging.”

In an internet-connected age, killing the internet is tantamount to bringing everything—communications, commerce, travel, the power grid—to a standstill.

Tyrants and would-be tyrants rely on this “cloak of darkness” to advance their agendas.

In Myanmar, for example, the internet shutdown came on the day a newly elected government was to have been sworn in. That’s when the military staged a digital coup and seized power. Under cover of a communications blackout that cut off the populace from the outside world and each other, the junta “carried out nightly raids, smashing down doors to drag out high-profile politicians, activists and celebrities.”

These government-imposed communications shutdowns serve to not only isolate, terrorize and control the populace, but also underscore the citizenry’s lack of freedom in the face of the government’s limitless power.

Yet as University of California Irvine law professor David Kaye explains, these kill switches are no longer exclusive to despotic regimes. They have “migrated into a toolbox for governments that actually do have the rule of law.”

This is what digital authoritarianism looks like in a technological age.

Digital authoritarianism, as the Center for Strategic and International Studies cautions, involves the use of information technology to surveil, repress, and manipulate the populace, endangering human rights and civil liberties, and co-opting and corrupting the foundational principles of democratic and open societies, “including freedom of movement, the right to speak freely and express political dissent, and the right to personal privacy, online and off.”

For those who insist that it can’t happen here, it can and it has.

In 2005, cell service was disabled in four major New York tunnels, reportedly to avert potential bomb detonations via cell phone.

In 2009, those attending President Obama’s inauguration had their cell signals blocked—again, same rationale.

And in 2011, San Francisco commuters had their cell phone signals shut down, this time, to thwart any possible protests over a police shooting of a homeless man.

With shutdowns becoming harder to detect, who’s to say it’s not still happening?

Although an internet kill switch is broadly understood to be a complete internet shutdown, it can also include a broad range of restrictions such as content blocking, throttling, filtering, complete shutdowns, and cable cutting.

As Global Risk Intel explains:

“Content blocking is a relatively moderate method that blocks access to a list of selected websites or applications. When users access these sites and apps, they receive notifications that the server could not be found or that access was denied by the network administrator. A more subtle method is throttling. Authorities decrease the bandwidth to slow down the speed at which specific websites can be accessed. A slow internet connection discourages users to connect to certain websites and does not arouse immediate suspicion. Users may assume that connection service is slow but may not conclude that this circumstance was authorized by the government. Filtering is another tool to censor targeted content and erases specific messages and terms that the government does not approve of.”

How often do most people, experiencing server errors and slow internet speeds, chalk it up to poor service? Who would suspect the government of being behind server errors and slow internet speeds?

Then again, this is the same government that has subjected us to all manner of encroachments on our freedoms (lockdowns, mandates, restrictions, contact tracing programs, heightened surveillance, censorship, overcriminalization, shadow banning, etc.) in order to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, preserve the integrity of elections, and combat disinformation.

These tactics have become the tools of domination and oppression in an internet-dependent age.

It really doesn’t matter what the justifications are for such lockdowns. No matter the rationale, the end result is the same: an expansion of government power in direct proportion to the government’s oppression of the citizenry.

According to Global Risk Intel, there are many motives behind such restrictions:

“For instance, the kill switch serves to censor content and constrain the spread of news. This particularly concerns news reports that cover police brutality, human rights abuses, or educational information. Governments may also utilize the kill switch to prevent government-critical protestors from communicating through message applications like WhatsApp, Facebook, or Twitter and organizing mass demonstrations. Therefore, internet restrictions can provide a way of regulating the flow of information and hindering dissent. Governments reason that internet limitations help stop the spread of fake news and strengthen national security and public safety in times of unrest.”

In this age of manufactured crises, emergency powers and technofascism, the government already has the know-how, the technology and the authority.

Now all it needs is the “right” crisis to flip the kill switch.

This particular kill switch can be traced back to the Communications Act of 1934. Signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Act empowers the president to suspend wireless radio and phone services “if he deems it necessary in the interest of national security or defense” during a time of “war or a threat of war, or a state of public peril or disaster or other national emergency, or in order to preserve the neutrality of the United States.”

In the event of a national crisis, the president has a veritable arsenal of emergency powers that override the Constitution and can be activated at a moment’s notice. These range from imposing martial law and suspending habeas corpus to shutting down all forms of communications, restricting travel and implementing a communications kill switch.

That national emergency can take any form, can be manipulated for any purpose and can be used to justify any end goal—all on the say so of the president.

The seeds of this ongoing madness were sown several decades ago when George W. Bush stealthily issued two presidential directives that granted the president the power to unilaterally declare a national emergency, which is loosely defined as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.

Comprising the country’s Continuity of Government (COG) plan, these directives (National Security Presidential Directive 51 and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20), which do not need congressional approval, provide a skeletal outline of the actions the president will take in the event of a “national emergency.”

Just what sort of actions the president will take once he declares a national emergency can barely be discerned from the barebones directives. However, one thing is clear: in the event of a perceived national emergency, the COG directives give unchecked executive, legislative and judicial power to the president.

The country would then be subjected to martial law by default, and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights would be suspended.

The internet kill switch is just one piece of the government’s blueprint for locking down the nation and instituting martial law.

There may be many more secret powers that presidents may institute in times of so-called crisis without oversight from Congress, the courts, or the public. These powers do not expire at the end of a president’s term. They remain on the books, just waiting to be used or abused by the next political demagogue.

Given the government’s penchant for weaponizing one national crisis after another in order to expand its powers and justify all manner of government tyranny in the so-called name of national security, it’s only a matter of time before this particular emergency power to shut down the internet is activated.

Then again, an all-out communications blackout is just a more extreme version of the technocensorship that we’ve already been experiencing at the hands of the government and its corporate allies.

Packaged as an effort to control the spread of speculative or false information in the name of national security, restricting access to social media has become a popular means of internet censorship.

In fact, these tactics are at the heart of several critical cases before the U.S. Supreme Court over who gets to control, regulate or remove what content is shared on the internet: the individual, corporate censors or the police state.

Nothing good can come from techno-censorship.

As Glenn Greenwald writes for The Intercept:

“The glaring fallacy that always lies at the heart of pro-censorship sentiments is the gullible, delusional belief that censorship powers will be deployed only to suppress views one dislikes, but never one’s own views… Facebook is not some benevolent, kind, compassionate parent or a subversive, radical actor who is going to police our discourse in order to protect the weak and marginalized or serve as a noble check on mischief by the powerful. They are almost always going to do exactly the opposite: protect the powerful from those who seek to undermine elite institutions and reject their orthodoxies. Tech giants, like all corporations, are required by law to have one overriding objective: maximizing shareholder value. They are always going to use their power to appease those they perceive wield the greatest political and economic power.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, these censors are laying the groundwork to preempt any “dangerous” ideas that might challenge the power elite’s stranglehold over our lives.

Whatever powers you allow the government and its corporate operatives to claim now, whatever the reason might be, will at some point in the future be abused and used against you by tyrants of your own making.

By the time you add AI technologies, social credit systems, and wall-to-wall surveillance into the mix, you don’t even have to be a critic of the government to get snared in the web of digital censorship.

Eventually, as George Orwell predicted, telling the truth will become a revolutionary act.

The internet was developed by the US military to do precisely what it is doing now.

The Web is the home of the Spider. This site is probably run, or at least managed if only passively, by British Intel. At the very least, the UK controllers will have made it quite clear what is not allowed to be posted here.

They will not shut the internet down- it is their direct line to your mind.

You need to disconnect yourself if you want to survive mentally and spiritually.

You will not be informed about things that matter in Myanmar, Gaza, or your own town, by being online, until it is too late, and then the info will probably be distorted…

Wireless communications affect living organisms, badly. Many of the symptoms of “covid” are probably radiation poisoning,

The revolution is aways happening offline, and will not be televised or digitised.

Bad piece by the Rutherfords.

Who owns the Internet? CIA and Pentagon. Who manage the Internet? Big Tech in Silicon Valley and Wall Street.
So we are supposed to be outraged over some third world countries shut down the “democracy” bs to kick the slimy trojan horses out of their country.

Actually kill switches are an efficient tool to make people communicate normally and confront themselves with the real world. and not the bs in the virtual world.

“Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. The real extent of this state of misinformation is known only to those who are in situations to confront facts within their knowledge with the lies of the day. I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens, who, reading newspapers, live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in the world.”
— Thomas Jefferson

These remarks were apparently made by Swinton, then the preeminent New York journalist (Contributor – Editor NYT), probably one night in 1880. Swinton was the guest of honour at a banquet given him by the leaders of his craft. Someone who knew neither the press nor Swinton offered a toast to the independent press. Swinton outraged his colleagues by replying:

“There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.

There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

Barbara W. Tuchman. “Practicing History.” iBooks.
“The most effectual engines for [pacifying a nation] are the public papers… [A despotic] government always [keeps] a kind of standing army of newswriters who, without any regard to truth or to what should be like truth, [invent] and put into the papers whatever might serve the ministers. This suffices with the mass of the people who have no means of distinguishing the false from the true paragraphs of a newspaper.”

“Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”
 – Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.

“News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising” –
former NBC news President Rubin Frank

“For better or worse, my company is a reflection of my character, my thinking, my values” – Rupert Murdoch

“We are here to serve advertisers. That is our raison d’etre”
 – CBS C.E.O. Michael Jordan 

“We have no obligation to make history. We have no obligation to make art. We have no obligation to make a statement. To make money is our only objective” –
Michael Eisner, CEO, The Walt Disney Co

“We are going to impose our agenda on the coverage by dealing with issues and subjects that we choose to deal with.” –
Richard M. Cohen, Senior Producer of CBS political news.

“We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets, and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”
Katherine Meyer Graham, Washington Post publisher

“People shouldn’t expect the mass media to do investigative stories. That job belongs to the ‘fringe’ media.”
– Ted Koppel (American broadcast journalist, best known as the anchor for Nightline)

“The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”
William Colby, former CIA Director, quoted by Dave Mcgowan, Derailing Democracy

I bought a piece of software years ago that allows me to down load videos from most platforms. I noticed that a couple of years ago videos from youtube were downloading at about 100 kbps while bitchute, for example, was speeding along at 600. Because I never watched youtube videos streaming, it took me a while to realize just how horrible and intrusive their ads had become because this software for whatever reason did not download the ads. Obviously the youtube servers could sense this and they chose to slow down their downloads to me hugely rather than just not permit it to connect. This is just fine with me. I have other productive things to do during the download.

In the old days these were known as ‘preference keys’. Telephone exchanges had a limited number of internal connections so in the even of an emergency when it was anticipated that too many people would try to use the system at the same time these keys would be used to lock out the majority of subscribers. These subscribers could still be called buy couldn’t call out.

This practice is as old as automatic telephone exchanges. It would be very surprising if elements of this practice didn’t carry on to VoIP and other Internet communications.

Glenn Greenwald? No thanks. Nothing he’s ever written has been remotely true.

Here’s a lawyer who actually tells the truth.

He tells the absolute and whole truth about The Constitution of No Authority. He tells the truth about the problems we are facing right now. Not just in the US but everywhere.

Governments are all centrally controlled. Once more people discover they are centrally controlled and installing the digital AI prison grid, more can take personal action to at least delay the implementation, while they educate themselves and everyone they know on what’s coming and how to opt out and become independent.

Read the Spooner Essay, on this link. The concepts of natural law are immutable. They are intrinsic and they are innate. Here’s all Spooner’s works.

Everyone on the planet should know and understand the concepts of natural law. This is occulted knowledge. Instead of natural law, and voluntary-ism what we have is illegitimate laws that protect the parasitic class and the unlawful power of the faux governments.

If you really believe in government, constitutions or authority you are wittingly or unwittingly part of the problem. But at least know this; Your “beliefs” are not your own. They have been implanted in you since childhood. By your parents. Teachers. Police. Professors. Pastors. Magistrates. Media.

Your parents probably didn’t know better. But all the rest did. And the teachers, police, church officials and government employees and professional association members and masons didn’t care what’s the truth or a lie because they were all order following cult members, working for a parasitic psychopathic cult that have enslaved humanity for thousands of years, through mass mind control and a procession of never ending frauds.

Religions. Monarchies. Governments: All use exactly the same fear and authority programming. That’s not a coincidence. It’s a pattern. A modus operandi.

If more people accept the fact that government is a criminal enterprise, has ALWAYS been, they’ll see it can’t ever be the solution. Once that acceptance occurs, they can examine all the ways they and their family can be independent of government and the impending digital prison grid.

Get off social media. All of it. Get off Twitter. Get off Facebook. Get off Instagram. Snap Chat. Pinterest. Get off What’s App and all the other spying apparatus on your phone. They’re spying on us, compiling files on all of us. Use a free VPN if you *have* to use the internet. ALL your online activity is being monitored. All your purchases made with debit or credit cards or air miles or membership cards are being collated and will become part of your social credit history.

Boycott Amazon and all the other large corporations. Use your $$$ wisely. These corporations and the tech companies, the Fortune 500 corps and any publicly listed corporation are building the CBDC digital prison technocracy. Anything you can buy on Amazon or from a big box store like Walmart or the chain supermarkets, you can find elsewhere. Buy organic produce from your local farmer or farmers market.

Sell your stocks and shares. They cannot help you if the market crashes and your pension fund or IRA goes bust. They don’t enrich you, they just keep you trapped in their fiat $$$ system, at their mercy.

Sell whatever things you don’t use or don’t wear. What good is all the stuff, if it collects dust, stays in closets, garages or storage, or stops you from saving or maybe even moving?

Stop using online apps like digital banking. Now we know WHY they pushed online bill payment. Use cash only for your purchases. And where possible, use checks for bill payments. The checks (cheques), envelopes and stamps may cost a little more but digital banking will end up costing your freedom. That’s priceless.

Get rid of all your online subscriptions and the other junk apps on your phone. Stop watching the lies on tv and YouTube. The news is a brainwashing control mechanism. It’s not there to inform you of anything remotely real or true.

Go to a site like 153news.net which is 100% uncensored. Watch the videos there showing the mass shooting hoaxes and exposing the controlled opposition.

Controlled opposition will claim we need better or more honest, or fairer governments or socialism or communism or constitutionalism or a dollar backed by gold. It’s all lies. Because the governments do not have any authority. They lie and brainwash us through their fake education (indoctrination) system, the fake media and enforce the lies in their fake courts.

Every single person on earth is what backs all the currencies. Your labor, your tax dollars. Not thin air. Your government is lying to you.

The revolutions are staged. The Constitutions and Charters are 100% scams. The courts have no authority, and must make you a legal fiction, without your consent or knowledge to trade or contract with you. Governments use our birth certificates, to back the currencies by making us all into certified, bonded, traded, liquid capital.

The REAL shareholders of the corporate governments want you on their privately owned, Corporate plantation, working for THEM 24/7/365. So THEY can steal your money, your energy, your ingenuity, your creativity, your labor and your children’s future.

No government anywhere is a public institution. Governments are not a groups of “elected” individuals. They are all pre-selected and pre-vetted, members of a cult. They are all replaceable, disposable employees, officers, actors and agents.

All governments are corporations. Legal entities with real stock holders and hidden board members. You are not a stock holder. It’s not YOUR government. You didn’t make it and you don’t even vote for it. The vote is a trick to make you psychologically cede your authority to a total scam.

Get rid of your smartphone. It’s not a convenience, it’s your future prison. Brick it and get a flip phone if you must. Then transfer the pics or what you need from your phone onto a PC or laptop that does NOT connect to the internet. You must have all your vital info and passwords NOT connected to the internet, but printed somewhere you can access if the internet goes down.

Don’t invest in crypto. It’s a scam by the controllers and is full of controlled opposition and criminals. Buy gold and silver bullion with your excess cash. Your shares and portfolios will be virtually worthless if they take down the markets or the US dollar. It won’t happen tomorrow but it has to happen eventually. Only ever keep what you can afford to LOSE in the stock market casino. It’s a casino and the house always wins.

The very same cartel who own governments, own the banks, stock markets, exchanges, clearing houses and brokerages. You cannot win against a rigged, corrupt system that is designed to strip you of your wealth and independence.

Knowledge is power. Knowledge is freedom. Having more knowledge, more power and more truth instead of unremitting lies will enable you to make the right decisions and also spread the truth to others. People are beginning to wake up but they need to know the full truth instead of disinfo and misinfo, or waiting around for someone else to fix things.

We all must take more personal responsibility for every aspect of our lives: From speaking out and spreading truth, to our own health, education, financial and career choices.

Looking forward to hearing from Researcher (and also Michael Yeadon, btw) how the millions of ill or disabled or pensioners in Western countries, – upward morbidity trend because of the jibby-jabs, – can exist without their transfer payment income from Bio-fash AKA the Gubbermint, absent digital ID …………….once Bio-fash decrees that digital ID is mandatory.

Or if not mandatory, as in pending Australian legislation, then a bank customer blocked from his own account for lack of a digital ID imposed by the bank will not be able to use anti-discrim. law to defeat the bank.

Like some Cabal member recently said at the IMF, “everyone needs a smartphone, digital ID and a bank account”.

The disabled and morbid are over a barrel.

Do you not understand that the lies the authorities disseminate is disinformation? They lie about everything including the privately owned, incorporated courts and laws.

Who are the shareholders and board members of your local incorporated court? Your local council? Try to find out. You can’t because it’s hidden from the public. There’s no transparency because they are obscuring the truth. Hence, the governments are not public corporations at all. You own no stock. You own no shares. Where are your share or stock certificates? Where is your authority or legal ownership within these corporations? You have none.

You and the rest of the public can’t audit these corporate entities or look at their books, yet every corporation has shareholders and a board of directors. The (s)elected politicians or employees of rge privately owned corporations posing as governments, aren’t board members or shareholders. They are officers and agents, thus employees of the private SHAREHOLDERS. Hence, all politicians are not beholden to the voters or the public. That’s why they continually ignore the will, the welfare and wishes of the populace.

Once a “citizen” (diminished status from that of an individual) steps foot in a court they have almost no legal standing unless they know legalese and the fact their ESTATE or legal fiction ALL CAPS name that contracts with the court is a probate document. They are at the mercy of the judge. All judges have absolute power and absolute immunity. No matter how corrupt they are.

Does that seem like a lawful system to you? Who the hell is a judge? And who gave them their authority? I didn’t. You didn’t. We didn’t.

He’s an agent or officer and a member of the Crown Temple Inns of Court, a BAR member, a FREEMASON.

If you believe in this kind of absurd power differential, and the concept of secret society members knowing secrets the rest of the public don’t know, you are either one of them, or totally mind controlled. Your only reason for being here, must be to represent the faux authorities and disseminate disinformation.

Governments have no lawful authority.

They trick populations into compliance first by defrauding them into believing in the false concept of authority, then by the fakery of voting for the private corporation’s pre-chosen lying ACTOR candidates in the circus sideshow called (S)elections, then by diminishing the populations legal status to that of a citizen (owned by and obligated to “the State”), then by creating a legal fiction of the living, breathing individual without their knowledge or consent, which is then is bonded, traded and certified (birth certificate) to back all the currencies and debt. Making the nescient citizens responsible for the national debts the private government corporations incur, all the while, making the “officers” and “agents” of these private corporations rich and expanding the power and wealth of the real shareholders of the corporate entities called governments.

If a corporation is a legal entity, a fictional creation of a man, then how can it possibly have authority over man, its creator? It can’t. They are lying about the laws in every nation. If they are defrauding people how then, are the contracts even valid?

Corporation etymology: Corpse. The corporation doesn’t live. It doesn’t exist in the real natural world. It doesn’t even have rights over any human unless the human is made into a legal fiction so it can contract with the legal entity called a court or government. Hence, GOVERNMENT ID. That thing you can’t move or travel or trade without. Does that seem like a scam? Why aren’t we told all this at school? Because school doesn’t exist to teach us anything other than lies, disinformation and how to be an obedient slave for the slave owners, then become a member of a professional association, which exerts further authority over us.

Do you know how many assets your fake, privately owned governments have? More than ANY national debt. I can assure you. How do we even know if the debts are real? They are just numbers that are disseminated to us. Probably as fake as the entities called VIRUSES.

Governments have seized land that’s not theirs, but really belongs to all the inhabitants of a realm or land mass. That land is more valuable than the debt. If you believe anything the government claims is true, you are in serious trouble. They lie to you from birth.

All faux governments seize and enFORCE all their faux authority by force. Not through voting. Hence that’s tyranny and a criminal enterprise. A criminal conspiracy. Not democracy. And it’s not lawful.

You can’t transfer a right you don’t possess by voting. If you don’t have the right to trespass on your neighbor’s property, claim ownership of his house if he doesn’t pay property taxes or “rates” to you, then how can you transfer that right you don’t possess to another? An individual or group of men? Or a corporate entity? If you don’t have the right to tax all of his income, or seize part or all of his estate after he dies, or assault him, arrest him, intimidate him, imprison him, or murder him, or question him, or even tell him what to do, then how can you pass all these rights you don’t possess to someone else? IE; a government?

Did you listen to the podcast by the lawyer? No, you didn’t. Have you read, listened to or studied anything on the concepts of natural law? No you have not.

You left a disinformation link created by your unlawful, privately owned government or court.

If you aren’t going to learn the difference between the words lawful and legal then don’t respond to me.

People whose only income is from the government are in trouble. Hopefully they have a relative, friends, or some other assets. Why do you think Western governments or communist regimes work so hard to make populations entirely dependent on them? Out of care for their inhabitants? No! Because they had this digital technocracy plan from before the 1930’s. Research the technocracy movement. Why does it have a dualism symbol similar to the Yin Yang symbol? Why is it red and white like the English, Swiss flag? Because these gnostics that started your churches, your religions, your secret societies, your governments don’t actually believe in god or the great architect. That’s the crap they save for the truly brainwashable. The truly mind controlled. They disseminate lies and propaganda and the SCRIPTED, Gematria riddled, astrotheology, allegorical Buy-BULL so THEY can be the god you worship, wittingly or unwittingly.

Most seniors own their own homes so they have assets. Assets can be pooled and people can be helped by their communities, by real charities, by their relatives.

The governments already murder seniors with the Liverpool “care” pathway (that’s 100% still operational) in Canada euthanasia is now legal and encouraged. A senior my husband knows was told by his family physician he is “useless”. Imagine that! Doctors actually despise and resent their patients, a fact you are too ignorant to know. They murder them on a daily basis and call it “healthcare”. Read The Lethal Dose by Jennifer Daniels on archive.org. When she exposed corruption in her city, by a government official, she had to leave the COUNTRY. There’s euthanasia in nursing homes from neglect and iatrogenesis. Iatrogenesis in the number one cause of death in the USA. It’s probably the same in all the 5eyes.

The flu shots and booster injections are shortening lives and murdering people. Have you bothered to check the all cause mortality rates in countries since the mass injection rollouts?

Why are all governments committing democide with injections? With unnecessary illegitimate, unpopular wars? Continually? Because the governments make money when they murder the debt slave citizens, cash in the bonded, traded financial instruments, collect the assets of the dead with no wills, and move entire populations off their land.

“You left a disinformation link created by your unlawful, privately owned government or court.”

So it ought to be easy to refute what the Encyclopedia contains, no? Btw, notice how Researcher uses the same smear word that her hated gubbermints use.

AFAIK there is no Five Eyes Common Law plea/statement of claim regarding the democide going forward, instead, we have such as: https://www.covidvaxclassaction.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/2.-Amended-Statement-of-Claim-sealed.pdf.

In fact, a Five Eyes lawyer now de-licensed for combatting pedophilia has written publicly that she is highly irate at you Common Law people, because women fighting for their children at court using Common Law get their cases thrown out (when I write this in forums, the typical response from you people is, that is the judges’ fault. Look, you don’t even understand the history around Magna Carta or cestui qui vie, and you have this magical belief about upper case letters…no wonder you resort to earbashing anyone you can grab.)

You would think that if Common Law as a legal approach holds water, then the movement in Five Eyes would contain at least one retired if not active lawyer who has seen the light in your view, but I don’t think it does.

Today’s Canadian decision ruling that Trudeau was ultra vires was not a Common Law-based case.

“Most seniors own their own homes so they have assets. Assets can be pooled and people can be helped by their communities, by real charities, by their relatives.”

How cute.I love the weasel words “pooled”, and “real charities”; a home is a realisable asset and has to be sold ie realised, before its countervalue can be pooled.So the senior then has to move out

“Doctors actually despise and resent their patients, a fact you are too ignorant to know.”

Oh yes? The spittle-flecked ranting of the Common Law earbasher again, how do you know what I know, I have likely forgotten more about aged care homes and what goes on there than you ever knew.

“Jenner” is dishonestly attempting to conflate natural law with common law. They are NOT related.

The Common Law psyop on the internet is 100% disinfo spread by masons and the government.

I am not interested and don’t discuss “common law”.

I already stated there are NO LEGAL REMEDIES within the fraudulent legal system.

The faux hysteria, faux accusations and faux outrage by “Jenner” is of course, an act, because he’s using disinfo, a priori and strawmen.

No matter how many times I explain that common law isn’t natural law and I’m not discussing common law he will continue to LIE.

All courts and governments are criminal enterprises. They use fraud for every part of their operations, meaning “we the people” cannot attain Justice from a criminal enterprise. The courts, BAR MEMBERS, police, military exist only to protect the shareholders of the corporations posing as governments.

Natural law is a set of principles that governs the right or wrong actions and behaviour of humanity. These laws are intrinsic and immutable and they are not man made laws.

RE: upper case letters in full names.

I thought I had found one instance for the use of all-capital letters in full names in an official document and ventured it was one way to make it clear to the reader when it was the person as a member of government or some other agency that was addressed, as opposed to addressing the individual free to obey or disobey.

After revisiting the document, it was after all the titles or functions that were all-capitalised, e.g. “FOREIGN SECRETARY,” and the rule had many exceptions, whereas the full names were transcribed the usual way within the text.

It is evident that the mention of the title or function was sufficient and unambiguous for the purpose as to whom was addressed, the capitalisation thereof was merely for emphasis.

I stand corrected on this.

Digital = centralized control. This is the Holy Grail of the elite. They believe this will keep a crowded Humanity under control and obedient. However Nature’s functionality is decentralized and holistic, an ecosystem. Each element, microorganism, plant, animal, human, up to weather, gravity, orbit and sunlight, works together to produce the functional whole that is Spaceship Earth, as Bucky Fuller called it. No human, group of humans or groups of Artificial Imitation machines can implement centralized control over Earth or People. It’s magical thinking of a most aberrant and evil intent.

Most of Humanity is in sync with Nature as described above and has a conscience that is is sync with Nature. Only the sociopathic, the psychopathic, have abandoned their consciences to greed and arrogance, possibly believing only they of superior chutzpah can Parent a society as it’s Children as farm animals.

We need to prove them wrong, once and forever, and move to a truly holistic, autonomous, self governing Humanity placing limits of wealth and poverty at the top and bottom of society. It’s our planet, not theirs.

Stop. Enough already with the socialist lies your slave owners invented and brainwashed you into repeating in senseless, uninformed rants.

They already have central control. It happened when the Holy Roman Empire was formed. It was never disbanded. They still rule today through the Vatican, Holy See, UN, WEF, IMF, World Bank, BIS, Crown Temple, Inns of Court, fake religions, all the incorporated courts, secret societies and your fake local and national governments.

Digital control is about removing decisions from Humanity and transferring them to AI. Thus the psychopathic parasites in charge, maintain total power, wealth and control, while also ensuring they and their agents (politicians, judges, lawyers etc) and thugs (police, militaries etc) aren’t ever held responsible or accountable.

In fact, unlike you, I already provided a solution, linked in my comment that discusses jury nullification on the podcast, whereas you simply LIED.

You didn’t provide a solution, yet I did.

Your hopium statements are not a solution. The wealth equality stuff is just socialism garbage repackaged.

“placing limits of wealth and poverty at the top and bottom of society.”

How? Are you going to do that if you can’t even counter the faux authorities?

You want to replace their unlawful tyranny with some other unlawful wealth management tyranny?

You left out the part about how we get there so you didn’t offer a solution of any sort.

I didn’t write anything remotely similar to you. I explained that the government has no lawful authority. They use mind control and disinformation. And the WORLD has always been centrally controlled. That directly contradicts your “Holy Grail” lie.

There is no moral or lawful grounds for any authority or any government.

Government = slavery.

I always provide solutions and links to back up my comments.

Then you lied again, implying the truths I reveal about the real situation we are faced with is nihilism. That’s something only disinfo agents write. The nihilism and gaslighting that goes on here is unbelievable. It’s “we get the government we deserve.” “Humanity should be wiped out.” I see this crap here all the time

… or this crap… “It’s communism.” It’s Satan.” “It’s the Jooooos.” “It’s capitalism.” “It’s the Rothschilds”. It’s money out of thin air.” “It’s the foreigners.” “It’s the white people.” “It’s colonialism.” “It’s the USA.”

I’m really fed up with the constant bs in the comments here.

Is it nihilism to tell the truth? No. To help people wake up to the voting scam? No. Is it nihilism to expose the lies of governments, media and courts? No.

We have a bigger problem than rogue governments. We are up against a millennia old central control system based on false authority, occulted knowledge and mass mind control.

That’s not nihilism, and that’s not negative or disillusioning. It’s just FACTS.

In order to solve any problem, first one must first fully comprehend the full extent of the problem and the criminality. Otherwise effective solutions can’t be found or implemented.

Knowing that all the governments in the world with their left vs right bs, their party vs party psyop, or their country versus country scam, the capitalism versus communism con, or the religion vs religion or race vs race nonsense, is a dualism tactic they use to divide and rule us, puts the whole con game into total perspective.

It’s a way to help people wise up and stop falling for the same con game, over and over again.

People seem incapable of comprehending viruses and germ theory are 100% fake. We need to spread more truth to more people, and faster. Natural law concepts must be explained and spread, and stymying their unlawful courts is one way of countering their autocratic tyranny.

Here’s my more elaborate solutions…


One could probably condense a holistic solution in four parts.

1)limit poverty and wealth;

2) bring home all foreign military bases and operations to the mainland and cut military-state-spy-police to 10% and move the roughly $2T in yearly tax revenues to Public Services, and;

3) convert Western fraudulent oligarchicdemoCRAPic republics to direct democracy, voting Policy directly, and;

4) socialize: the FED and one half all banks to a Public Banking System; Public Health; Transportation; Water and all Utilities.

All of the 1%’s financial casino would be disempowered and all resources and revenues would be overseen by the 99%, sans 1%’s authority-to-decide.

Reply to  sandy

Sandy, none of these are achievable. They aren’t solutions.

You are ignoring the fact the controllers aren’t going to let any changes occur to the system they’ve had in place for millennia.

Secondly, it’s unethical and immoral to believe you or anyone can place limits on others or control others through a central bank or government.

That’s the psychological trick of false authority the false authorities brainwash people into believing.

So if you want to really help, you can learn the concepts of natural law outlined in this video, or read Spooner’s No Treason essay.

Then spread them to everyone you know or don’t know, via flyers or hand outs. On public message boards.

But the world is the way it is mainly because of false beliefs, such as the concepts of government, faux economics and authority. More authority = more tyranny.

How can you prohibit or control others without force? And by what right do you have to tell anyone else what to do? You don’t have the moral or ethical right to control anyone and you can’t transfer that right to another.

Socialism as any kind of a solution is an outright lie. One of the most pernicious lies that has ever existed in the 20th and 21st century. We are not facing a problem of economics. Economics has literally nothing to do with what’s happening. The false beliefs in authority and man made laws, is the entire and total problem.

The “Founding Fathers” were conspirators who highjacked the convention that was originally called to revise the Articles of Confederation. They purposefully fashioned and established a socio-economic- political system establishing themselves as the owners/leaders of the country.
Slavery was codified, legalized and reinforced in the US Constitution! The hypocritical founders cunningly chose not to use the words slave or slavery in the original document: Article I Section 2, Section 9 and Article IV Section 2 all deal with slavery. These sections specifically deal with counting enslaved persons for congressional representation, setting the amount of a tax on “imported persons” and the Fugitive Slave Act which protected the “property” of the convention delegates the majority of whom “owned” slaves!
