Virginia Files Billion-Dollar Suit Against Banksters

• Virginia files lawsuit against plutocrats who conned state with toxic mortgages.

By Ronald L. Ray —

True to its state motto — “Sic semper tyrannis,” or “Thus always to tyrants” — the Commonwealth of Virginia has brought a$1.15 billion civil fraud lawsuit against a “banker’s dozen” of the largest international investment houses. Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced the case in mid-September, which was filed in Richmond Circuit Court. In a prepared statement, the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) alleged that the big banks deliberately misrepresented the quality of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), a form of financial derivative, sold to the Virginia Retirement System (VRS), beginning in 2004.

Prior to 2010, “Virginia was forced to sell the vast majority of these toxic securities built on junk mortgages and lost $383 million.” The attorney general now seeks to obtain the maximum penalty allowed by law, in order to redress the harm done to Virginia taxpayers. The OAG expects that the money recovered will go to repay the taxpayers and VRS for their losses.

In a virtual “who’s who” of plutocratic pirates, 13 mega-banks have been accused of violating the commonwealth’s 2002 Fraud Against Taxpayers Act, which permits treble damages for losses, plus additional penalties.

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, however, two JPMorgan Chase subsidiaries, JPMorgan Securities LLC and WAMU Capital Corporation (formerly Washington Mutual), were dropped subsequently, when the OAG learned that Herring’s predecessor, Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II, had previously reached a secret settlement with the two firms for $3 million. Depending on circumstances, however, they could be sued in the future.

The remaining “banker’s dozen” are subsidiaries of the world’s biggest institutional usurers: Barclays, Citigroup, Countrywide, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, RBS, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, UBS and Merrill Lynch.

In brief, Virginia alleges that 220 securities it purchased were offered as being rated AAA or similarly, with 0% delinquency. This factor is important to institutional investors like Virginia because ofthe need for a stable and secure return. However, 75% of the mortgages eventually defaulted. The RMBSs were backed by 785,000 mortgages, of which 40% were “fraudulently misrepresented.” The OAG stated that the banks “knew, or shouldhave known,” that claims in their prospectuses and sales presentations were false.

The fraudulent practices were discovered by Integra REC, LLC, “using extremely sophisticated proprietary methods” to match RMBSs with the respective individual mortgages, said the OAG.

The first of three main accusations is that the banks misrepresented the loan-to-value ratio (an indication of likely default). On average, only 23.4% of loans were represented as being for more than 80% of property value, when it was really 54%. Fifteen percent were “underwater.” Further, rates of owner occupancy were overstated significantly, and second mortgage numbers were severely understated. Both of these latter factors also contribute to delinquency rates.

Herring stated: “Every Virginian was harmed by the financial crisis. Homes were lost, retirement accounts were devastated, small businesses saw their credit dry up almost overnight. . . . I will notallow Virginians to be left holding the bag for the reckless, fraudulent business practices of a few big banks who thought they were above the law. These banks lied to Virginia, and taxpayers and [nearly 600,000] state employees lost hundreds of millions dollars as a result.”

As a measure of Herring’s confidence and resolve, the Commonwealth of Virginia has demanded a jury trial. It is to be hoped that true justice will be served, and that there will be no further secret settlements that allow the plunderous plutocrats to return to usury as usual.

Despite a nearly endless stream of revelations of the moneylenders’ wrongdoing—now including collusion by the Federal Reserve—at least one apologist for the weasels of Wall Street, Matthew E. Fishbein, suggests in the New York Law Journal that the banksters and other corporate criminals are the victims, forced by evil government lawyers to admit to things they believe they did not do. He goes so far as to call cases similar to the Virginia lawsuit “marginal,” because they involve only a few hundred million dollars.

But the truth is that the international bankers are usurious pirates, bent on sucking every cent out of the nearly empty pockets of widows and orphans. They have created a corporate culture ofcorruption, which is destroying nearly every economy on the face of the planet. It is time to end the financial pharaohs’ stranglehold on the common man by ending usury and putting every single one of these predatory banks out of business.

UPDATE 30. Oct. 13, 2014

Although it is not a shocking or surprising fact when you are aware of the true nature of the Israeli government and its most powerful lobby abroad (the Israel lobby 12) the following ebola-related information should not be taken lightly at all because it is part of the global reprogramming of minds and rewriting of “knowledge,” while advancing to the “new world.”

Also the Israeli Homeland Security can from now on be blamed and held accountable for deliberate information distortion in the globalists their ebola death campaign for it is the IHLS itself that is assisting, if not leading, in the redefining of ebola symptoms and the causes of alleged ebola deaths.

  • IHLS, Ebola: Mapping the Outbreak“In March, hospital staff alerted Guinea’s Ministry of Health and then the charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). They reported a mysterious disease in the south-eastern regions of Gueckedou, Macenta, Nzerekore, and Kissidougou. It caused fever, diarrhoea and vomiting. It also had a high death rate. Of the first 86 cases, 59 people died. The WHO later confirmed the disease as Ebola.”

Israel’s Homeland Security is one of the leading powers when it comes to intelligence and military and medical knowledge. It can therefore accurately be called deliberate deception when we witness this sixth eye’s assistance or leading role in redefining the ebola symptoms globally. No bleeding at all is mentioned even once by the IHLS although it is the bleeding that is the most typical and deadly symptom of all when it concerns ebola.

On the other hand, I also look forward to the IHLS their take on the fact that the BBCconfirmed 3 times that there were/are no ebola cases in the very epicenter (the first epicenter) of the alleged outbreak in 2014.

Or, one may rightfully ask: Are we really dealing with ebola here?

Wolf meets with Oath Keepers / CIA Spy confirms Sandy Hook and Boston bombing “false flags”

There seems to be a theme here. today . . .  A few days ago, I was simply researching things going on in the world of Common Law Grand Juries. In that time, the lid has been blown-off the entire Sandy Hook event. Earlier this week, Wolfgang Halbig met with a group of Oath Keepers in New York–here are the details.

Reader submissions are helping to get the truth out there. Many thanks to all parties involved. -LW


Wolf meets with Oath Keepers / CIA Spy confirms Sandy Hook and Boston bombing “false flag” events

by Jim FetzerDr. Eowyn and David Weiss

David Weiss, Wolfgang Halbig and Tim Rothschild (no relation to the banksters)

David Weiss, Wolfgang Halbig and Tim Rothschild (no relation to the infamous banksters of the same name)

Wolfgang Halbig converted nearly 200 “Oath Keepers” during a presentation on Long Island, including many New York State Police, EMTs and other experts in this domain.

He was accompanied by David Weiss, who has composed a summary of the event, which I am now publishing here. And we have a video that goes with it.

In addition, we have discovered a manual that appears to be the op plan for the Sandy Hook exercise, which Obama admin officials in the Department of Education have confirmed was a drill where no children died that was done to promote an anti-gun agenda.

And a former CIA spook has declared that Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing were “false flag” occurrences, where a staged event is presented as done by others to influence a target audience. He identifies several “indicators” that it was not a real event.

Dr. Eowyn, who has done exceptional studies of Sandy Hook, presents her analysis of what he had to say during an interview with Alex Jones, during where (as an insider) he confirms what we have been publishing at Veterans Today and on Dr. Eowyn’s personal blog.

The Wolf is on the prowl

Wolfgang W. Halbig came to an Oath Keepers meeting in Long Island NY on Monday, 6 October 2014, to discuss the evidence of the Sandy Hook massacre actually being an elaborate illusion pulled off by people within FEMA, Homeland Security and the highest levels of our government. He presented to a packed room of 150-200 persons, of whom about half were law enforcement and EMS workers. Prior to the presentation, I had (David Weiss) interviewed a few random people on their thoughts on Sandy Hook and all of them said they only know the official story of a lone gunman killing 26 people and they were here to hear a presentation on what really happened. They had no idea what they were about to hear. Wolfgang presented for just over 2 hours followed up by a Q&A. There were intelligent questions asked in search of an alternative reason things might have happened but the answers brought every point back to the undeniable conclusion that the official story was just that, an impossible story. By the end everyone there was wide awake to the mass deception played out on the world on 14 December 2012.

Many people out there have different opinions of Wolfgang from him being an agent for the PTB to not agreeing with his methods of investigation. If you don’t like his methods, that is your opinion and you have every right to it but if you think he is an agent out to crush the truth movement, thats where I step in and tell you that you are very mistaken. I (David Weiss) met Wolfgang after his first interview (with Dave Gahary) to go viral on YouTube. I helped him set up a PayPal account, which he had no Idea how to do and later his GoFundMe crowd funding account. The man has no ties to anyone that is out to stop truth. He has no agenda other than to expose the fraud at Sandy Hook. He has risked his life and his family relationships over this and has not gained a personal penny. In fact he has spent much of his own money. Love him or hate him, he is giving it his all and is a true American patriot and hero.

The FEMA Drill document

Originally we came across a Youtube video showing the attached document describing a FEMA drill scheduled for 12/13/12 that would be reviewed as a real-time event on 12/14/12. It certainly would be a smoking gun, if it could be determined to be authentic. An administrator from the “Sandy Hook HOAX” FaceBook page reached out to the YouTuber to see where he obtained the document. He explained that he was crawling the web with a specific browser looking for interesting stuff and found this:

If this document is real–and it describes an event that begins at 8:00 AM and ends at 11:59 PM, which corresponds with the Sandy Hook timeline, which reinforces such an inference–then there are two alternatives as to how it came to be discovered: either (1) it wasn’t hidden well enough and someone found a way in; or (2) someone involved purposely leaked it to anonymously blow the whistle.

An additional reason to believe that this might be the manual for staging the event is that a bill before the Connecticut State Legislature provides compensation for the stress and anxiety endured by those who were within the vicinity of Sandy Hook Elementary School between 9 AM and 11:59 PM when it occurred, which is the same time specified in (what appears to be) the actual manual for its conduct and represents what should properly be interpreted as yet another form of bribery to not expose the scam:

Bill to compensate : another bribe

While meta-data embedded in the PDF shows a creation date of 10/8/12, that isn’t difficult to fake. You would only need to reset your computer to that date and create a new PDF. That is reminiscent of the sting on Dan Rather, who discovered a fitness report on George W. Bush wile serving in the Texas Air National Guard. He vetted it thoroughly by verifying its contents, word by word, with the secretary who typed it and the officer who had dictated it.

But one of W’s handlers–probably Karen Hughes–had already discovered it and had it retyped, so that when Dan Rather presented his expose on television, they immediately declared it to be a fake because it had been types using a font that IBM only introduced after the date of the document itself. Most Americans, hearing that the document was fake, mistakenly inferred that its contents must therefore be false. This manual may be meant to be a sting of that kind.

Former CIA Spy: Sandy Hook and Boston Bombing were false flags

by 

Robert David Steele, 62, is a former CIA clandestine services case officer known for his promotion of open source intelligence. He was a candidate for the Reform Party‘s nomination for President of the United States in the 2012 presidential election. (Click here for his bibliography and media appearances.)

Steele is the founder and publisher of Public Intelligence Blog.

In a recent interview with Alex Jones of InfoWars, Steele confirms everything FOTM has said about the Sandy Hook school massacre on December 14, 2012, and the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013 — that they were false flag events.

A “false flag” event is some traumatic public incident that is:

  • False: The public are given an untruthful version of the event by the government and the media. The falsity can range from no one actually had been killed or hurt (it was all theater); to some of the alleged victims are real; to all the alleged victims are real but the alleged perpetrator(s) is a fall guy who was set up by the “real” conspirators behind the scenes.
  • Results in a “rallying around the flag” effect: Whatever the true nature of the “false flag” event, the objective is to arouse and manipulate the emotions (fear, anger, outrage, indignation) of the American people so that they’ll “rally around the flag” in an outburst of patriotism, supplying the current White House occupant and his (and his party’s) policies with their support and loyalty.

Below is the video of the interview, followed by the transcript of Steele’s words, interspersed with links to the relevant FOTM posts.

Beginning at the 6:03 mark, Steele said:

“From where I sit, both the [Sandy Hook Elementary] school in Connecticut and the Boston Bombing were false flag operations.

“The school in Connecticut had been closed for years. There were no students, no teachers, no parent-teacher associations. The paramedics were not allowed into the school. From where I sit, that was a complete false flag. It was a drill. But … others have exposed the actors who were involved, financial relations with the families that were allegedly victimized, who had their homes bought and were then given exit pass. All of that is on the record, but you don’t see the media covering that.”

See:

Steele continues: “Boston bombing, for me, the truthteller was when the rabbis and the priests rushed to comfort the wounded and they were not allowed to get near any of the wounded. That, in intelligence, we call an indicator. And then you add to that the fact there were no, I mean no, wounded people taken to hospitals. And finally, you add to that the big to-do about the amputee. He turned out to be a hired actor for a company that specializes at putting amputees into battle field simulations. False flag. Boston was a practice attempt to lock down an entire city.”

See:

Beg. at the 8:44 mark, Steele said: “the actual bomb was a theatrical device. You don’t buy gun powder at a fireworks store to create a bomb. It just is not done. I had my explosive ordinance people look at this. Everybody laughed at this. This was school kids stuff. THERE WAS NO BOMB. There were no injuries. This was a false flag.”

See “Were Boston Marathon bombings a false flag? – Part 2: The bomb drill

Steele continues: “And now we’re seeing 9/11 unravel, and Richard Gates getting on CSPAN. Basically, the American public is starting to wake up, and all of these little things that they could have gotten away with are now starting to collapse because of the Internet, because of guys like you, because of people like me and my contributing editors. And so I think we’re coming to the end of the road here. I do believe, and I really want to stress here, I think 95% of the people in the U.S. government are good people trapped in a bad system. But the last 5% are doing some evil, pathologically sick things, including murdering U.S. citizens. And that’s the part that I’m starting to see signs of encouragement. For example … the court has finally just refused to accept [Eric Holder] Attorney General’s assurances about secret state documents, and for the first time in modern history the court is saying to the executive, ‘You have to show us these secret documents. We will not make you make claims without showing us the documents. I believe the tide is turning, legally, against government misbehavior.”

Coming Soon: Major Turning Point in Sandy Hook Shooting Hoax

I had mixed feelings about posting this video because it’s long and strikes me as a wee bit of fear-mongering. Wolfgang makes some good points, but there is a lot more drama in his presentation than I feel is necessary. On the positive side, it seems that there are common law grand juries getting ready to expose the truth of Sandy Hook. -LW


Wolfgang Halbig on Sandy Hook ~ Staged Government Community Event- It was a DHS/FBI/FEMA HSEEP/ICE Drill- an “INTEGRATED CAPSTONE EVENT” (see DHS website)

“There WILL BE a proper Coronial Inquest where all the witnesses (including the cops/feds) are put on the stand and cross-examined under oath and where ALL the evidence (forensic, ballistics, eye-witnesses, documentary) is also presented and carefully analysed and tested again, under oath.

A Common Law Grand Jury constituted of WE THE PEOPLE will challenge the state’s assertions that Sandy Hook really happened as they say it did, their assertions will be vigorously contested.

Their completely discredited and bogus “narrative” wouldn’t stand up for two seconds under competent and rigorous cross-examination.”

GREENLAWN, NY– Wolfgang Halbig, former teacher, law enforcement, and current national school safety assessment & emergency management consultant, maintains that the so-called Sandy Hook CT shootings were a staged cooperative government – community “Capstone” exercise planned years before December 2012, for the purpose of banning commonly-used firearms and limiting free speech. Halbig asserts the incident was a financial bonanza for the Newtown community and involved parents, all of whom moved into the CT community only between 2009-2011, and all receiving over $200K each for their involvement in the exercise.

Halbig’s questions are returned with silence and contempt; threat of arrest. Many details don’t add up… record shows no report of actual shots fired; no social security numbers for the dead students; 16 state troopers pre-positioned 45-60 minutes before the alleged shootings, and much more. Halbig also presents the proper safety procedures that schools must follow in a code-red event and urges parents to study your local school emergency management plan.– FULL LENGTH VIDEO– October 6, 2014

FINAL NAILS IN THE EBOLA SCAM COFFIN: The 2014 Ebola Outbreak is a PROVEN FRAUD, Here is the Evidence.

This article is being updated frequently on the Truth Sector blog
Updates 23 thru 30 (October 5th – 13th) are here
.

THIS IS THE MAIN AND LEADING ONLINE EBOLA REPORT


UPDATES ARE ONGOING – CURRENT NUMBER OF UPDATES: 22

LATEST UPDATE: OCTOBER 4, 2014

UPDATE 1. Sept. 21, 2014

People who doubt or even deny until they drop that the 2014 ebola outbreak is being manufactured/scripted along the way as they, the UN, see it necessary in order to keep the world population fooled enough and the pockets and private bank account of Ban ki Moon filled royally enough, answer this question.

If the death rate for ebola is about 50-90% and if there is no cure for ebola then how is it possible that 75% of the alleged patients in the FIRST epicenter, in Guinea, of the outbreak have recovered (Bloomberg, July 29, 2014)?

The fact that 75% of the alleged patients have recovered without a known cure – since officially there is none – should be big news, yet that fact(oid) has died a swift death. WHY?

That FIRST epicenter would be the same as the one that the BBC reported about in August 2014 as having remained free of ebola, miraculously.

Why and how did the United Nations switch the FIRST epicentre – from Gueckedou, Guinea – to Sierra Leone’s northeastern district of Kailahun, the SECOND and new epicenter?

Who ordered that the hype and lies surrounding the 2014 ebola outbreak and ebola in general had to go on, no matter what? Who is collecting the multimillion-dollar checks for this? Or is it just about the total takeover of Africa?

UPDATE 2. Sept. 22, 2014

It’s all about the money, the entire ebola frenzy and fraud!

Take in account the following from CNN. On July 30, 2014, “the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, an arm of the military responsible for any chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive threats, allotted additional funding to MAPP Biopharmaceutical due to promising results.”

July 30 would be the very same day that Kent Brantly received his miracle cure ZMapp. ZMapp as in… MAPP Biopharmaceuticals.

Now, the official reports about Brantly are that he was near death, due to his ebola infection. What this means is that in such a stage one would most likely be seriously bleeding and would likely not make it anyway in the event that Brantly had ebola at all. He likely contracted another lab-created illnesss. Therefore the establishment reports about Brantly instantly recovering or feeling better within hours after getting his ZMapp cure is total and complete baloney. Any real medic or doctor will confirm this. Even Forbes has written about that.

zmapp, mapp, money, fraud, scam, ebola, 2014, outbreak

About a week later, after the amazing ZMapp magic, on August 7 Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corporation announced that “the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has verbally confirmed they have modified the full clinical hold placed on the TKM-Ebola Investigational New Drug Application (IND) to a partial clinical hold. This action enables the potential use of TKM-Ebola in individuals infected with Ebola virus.”

As the US FDA approved the use of TKM Ebola the United Nations was having a meeting on August 6 and 7 and was about that meeting to announce, on August 8, that the alleged ebola outbreak was from now on an international health crisis. That would now be the ultimate safeguard that will allow any and all experiments on any real or suspected ebola patient anywhere in the world, completely free from any possible criminal charges if anyone dies or gets permanent health implications. As confirmed in this Dutch medical article and interview dated August 14, 2014.

Tekmira’s stock price “is up 147 percent since the beginning of 2014 and experienced a 62 percent spike between March 3 and March 11, when the outbreak first began. … Meanwhile, NewLink is an Ames, Iowa-based firm that has seen its stock price jump 34 percent in the past four weeks. Most of its products in development are meant to treat cancer, but earlier in August, a company subsidiary, BioProtection Systems Corporate, announced a $1 million contract with the United States Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) for research on an Ebola vaccine.”

All coincidence, right?

So ask yourself. Who will be profiting the most from the multi-billion-dollar transfers in this fraudulent ebola outbreak? It certainly will not be the African healthcare system nor the patients it serves nor the African environment that has been polluted by big pharma and other multinational corporations.

Also read this at Zero Hedge, “The Ebola Epidemic Silver-Lining: IMF Bailouts For Everyone.”

UPDATE 3. Sept. 22, 2014

Ebola-free…

The reports about Nigeria declaring the nation ebola-free are scarce and should for now be approached with a certain level of skepticism. However, the near-silence in the mainstream media pretty much speaks for itself.

The fact that this is not front page news and only a very few foreign/western news outlets want to report about this rather positive development means only one thing. DON’T BURST THE EBOLA BUBBLE!

Whether or not it is for not playing ball anymore, the World Bank is not providing any cash to Nigeria in the alleged ebola outbreak, which is a good thing. In this way Nigeria will have less toxic loans hanging around its neck.

UPDATE 4. Sept. 22, 2014

The following photo published at The Telegraph on September 20, 2014, further supports the claims that have been made by me in this report about the Daily Mail and the UPI their failed attempts to keep up with the scripted ebola outbreak.

Read the captions under the photos:

The Telegraph…

Daily Mail Fail…

daily mail, fail, ebola, fraud, s, sierra leone, liberiaam

UPDATE 5. Sept. 23, 2014

Ebola and by the US-enforced regime change in Africa…

I am still looking at the ebola outbreak from all the possible angles and one thing that has been consuming quite some time is to document how the corporate US establishment will be profiting and how they are trying to reach their goals during this “ebola crisis” that was created on purpose and as one should know by now theGlobalists inc. NEVER let a crisis go to waste. And so it is the case in Liberia.

As I came across the Press Union of Liberia’s “Letter to Justice Minister,” dated September 4 (2014), in search for more clues and evidence that we are not getting the truth about what is really going on in Africa, the following sentence caught my attention and prompted me to dig a little further:

  • “The Press Union of Liberia’s attention is specifically drawn to several circumstances that do not only restrain journalists in their obligation to seek out and share useful news and information with the public, but significantly threaten even media participation in the global fight against ebola.”

So what this means is that the press in Liberia, and therefore also in the other African nations who are wrapped  in the ebola scam, is being forced in several ways to not dig too deep for the truth about the ebola outbreak in Africa.

AND there is a deceptive yet revealing twist to this fact…

A lot of digging in this matter is not needed at all because one swift look at the “about” page of the Press Union of Liberia’s website (PUL) will give you the next sentence that spills the beans, at least from my perspective:

  • “The U.S.-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is the lone funder of the activities of the Union. The NED provides an annual grant (that has progressively moved to US$40,220) for the operation and activities of the PUL.”

So there you have it, just as I wrote earlier in a previous post. The ebola fraud and scripted campaign of death is certainly and has been proven to be also about regime change or the further and total hostile takeover of Africa.

Because:

  • The NED regularly provides funding to opposition candidates in elections in countries other than the USA. And according to Allen Weinstein, one of the founders of NED a lot of what [NED does] today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA. The NED has principally supported candidates with strong ties to the military and (crucially) who support the rights of US corporations to invest in those countries with minimal restriction. The NED has not supported candidates who oppose investments by US corporations or who promise restrictions on investment rights of US corporations.

Oh but wait there’s another unfortunately funny need-to-know tidbit for today’s ebola update that  I somehow overlooked. It just confirms once again that the ebola scriptwriters can’t keep up with their own mess. Here’s UPI’s title for the article that I linked to in this report earlier regarding the Daily Mail Fail.

Citizens of Ebola“…

Give me a break. This ebola fraud is becoming too ludicrous to investigate or even mention.

upi, united press international, fail, ebola, fraud, sierra leone, liberia, jfk medical center, monrovia, citizens of ebola

UPDATE 6. Sept. 24, 2014

“In Liberia, up to 75 percent of those killed by Ebola have been women.”Voice of America

I have problem with this percentage and the official explanation for it. Here is why:

Admitted, nurses and people who wash the dead bodies are likely to include more women than men, which could account for a somewhat higher number of ebola-related deaths. I shall not argue about that because that same Voice of America article also reads “women and girls account for more than 55 percent of reported Ebola cases in affected countries.”

However, the fact that Liberia specifically is singled out by VOA as the African nation that has a 75% rate of women dying from ebola is still suspicious and makes me wonder what they are truly dying from because it is not just in Liberia that there would be a chance that more women are nurses and wash dead bodies, that would also be the case for Guinea and Sierra Leone, and when these women go home after completing their jobs for the day they’ll be easily infecting their family (husband, daughters and sons) at home in the event that the mother got infected at her job.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE…

Up to 83% of the people who are being brought to the cemetery are not being given an official cause of death, yet are being buried along with the alleged ebola victims and are included in the ebola-related statistics, as having died from ebola just because there were ebola-like symptoms. Now, we all know that quite a few other diseases, be they lab-created or not, will cause ebola-like symptoms which is why medics and doctors need a lab test for confirmation in order to exclude possible other diseases.

  • In Sierra Leone… “At another six households on the cemetery supervisor’s list of the dead, residents gave similar accounts. One family said the victim had definitely died of Ebola, while five others described Ebola-like symptoms — vomiting, diarrhea, fever — though none had been given an official cause of death.” New York Times

So, what did this 83% actually die from? What did the 75% of women in Liberia die from? Those are VERY important questions that will likely go unanswered for ever. Any death in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea (or anywhere else) can be and is being attributed to ebola now just because of possible symptoms – whether or not ebola-related at all – just to ramp up the statistics of the United Nations their campaign of death in Africa.

UPDATE 7. Sept. 24, 2014

I’m starting to feel to have been Sandy Hooked in this 2014 ebola fraud and so should many other people.

As more and more details emerge and more and more lies are being exposed regarding the 2014 ebola fraud this next one is likely one of the most damning pieces of the puzzle so far.

Initial investigations are revealing that the Kent Brantly episode of the 2014 ebola fraud campaign is NOT what it appears to be.

The flight that allegedly picked up Kent Brantly never arrived in Liberia or anywhere else in Africa on the dates as published and advertised by the media. That flight,KVPC – LPLA / TER, with airplane N173PA – a Gulfstream 3 (twin-jet) operated by Phoenix Air – departed at Cartersville on Thursday July 31, 2014, as stated by several media outlets [1, 2]. It flew for 2 hours and 14 minutes that day, only to turn around half way down the flight, and headed back to where it departed in Cartersville.

There are those who claim that the flight had been rescheduled and renamed that day and was now flight PHA333 Gray Bird. That is of course an easily proven lie because PHA333 Gray Bird was a 44-minute flight on Tuesday August 5, 2014.

Still, there is another way to document that the Kent Brantly episode of the 2014 ebola fraud is on par with Sandy Hook’s Robbie Parker.

On July 22, 2014, Kent Brantly “woke up feeling feverish. … A rapid field blood test confirmed the infection in both of them after they had become ill with fever, vomiting and diarrhea,” wrote CNN.

Thus, Brantly had allegedly been struck by ebola on Tuesday July 22, 2014. Also according to CNN “Brantly didn’t receive [the ZMapp cure] until he’d been sick for nine days.”

Nine days would be on either July 30 or July 31 depending on one’s perspective on the time frame. That would be impossible since the Phoenix Air flight only took off on July 31, allegedly. At that time Brantly was still supposed to be in Africa waiting for that flight.

Here’s how alleged ebola patients Brantly and Writebol arrived at the hospital in the USA, a country with the most attention for security and with the biggest Big Brother complex in the world.

Brantly…

Writebol…

None of the two, Brantly and Writebol, are being transported in the proper manner, as should be expected in the world’s most intense police state. Makes you question how much of the Writebol story is real.

In contrast but in a very funny way, here we have the first yet imaginary Spanish ebola patient being transported, although the stretcher is empty the scene certainly looks more convincing. Still, it is also a failed propaganda stunt.

Do I believe this is the false flag that an ex CIA operative talked about recently? Well, it certainly has all the features of one.

Thanks to Tigerwolfe for contributing to this damning update #7.

(Some people are writing me and claim that Brantly got his ZMapp in Africa. Really, says who? Fox News or the US government? Yeah, and Michael Jackson was born in Beijing.)

UPDATE 8. Sept. 24, 2014

When Orwell meets Ebola…

A September 22 NBC News article, Ebola Death Rate 70 Percent, WHO Says in Dire New Forecast,” written by National Immunization Program award winner Maggie Fox needs a good debunking attack!

Among other signs of attempting to reprogram what people know about ebola the World Health Organization and NBC News together report in that trashy piece:

  • “Forget about the tales of horrific bleeding from the eyes nose and mouth. Bleeding is one of the most unusual symptoms, the team of experts from around the world said. … The most common first symptoms are fever and fatigue. Hemorrhage — the most feared symptom — is seen in fewer than 5 percent of patients, although about 18 percent had unexplained bleeding, the WHO team said. … Ebola has an incubation period of 11 days.”

My god! They first make you believe that bleeding – hemorrhage – during an ebola infection is a tale that only comes true in about 5% of the ebola patients, immediately followed – in the very same sentence – by the admission that 18% of the alleged ebola patients actually suffered from hemorrhage. If this is not scripting-gone-mad then I don’t know what is.

Another part of the WHO and NBC News their joint Orwell strategy is the fact that according to them the incubation period for ebola is 11 days. What ever happened to 2 to 21 days?

Clearly this NBC News piece by health amateur Maggie Fox is a damage control move to explain away the lack of photographic evidence in this outbreak that normally should be documenting in a mainstream way at least a few cases of actual ebola including the bleeding, aside from laying the track for easily allowing to attribute as many deaths as possible to ebola by rewriting what the symptoms are. This ties in perfectly with update #6 of this ebola scam report.

UPDATE 9. Sept. 25, 2014

If this latest CNN fail is the level of reporting that people really fall for and perceive as real or factual then I swear I will stop investigating this 2014 ebola scam. First we see this likely drunk or doped up man falling out of an ambulance and then we have a kid willingly laying on the floor, all this is being reported by CNN as “inside Liberia’s ebola crisis.”

Luckily the comments under the video are hopeful.

EbolaGate 2014: E-mails from and Communications with Locals Confirm the Fraud Time and Again

There’s no one that can even confirm a single case of ebola. Today I will publish the most recent e-mail that I have received so far. Names and addresses have been redacted.

EbolaGate 2014: The BBC Confirms in Complaint Case That Epicenter of Outbreak “Miraculously Remained Free of Ebola So Far”

UPDATE 13. Sept. 27, 2014

  • SIM, September 15, 2014: “Last week there were about 50 patients in the ELWA 2 Ebola Management Center. Praise God that 19 patients were cured and released within a two-day period!”

Alleged ebola patients who are cured and released in 2 days DON’T HAVE EBOLA! Obviously there is something else going on and/or making people sick, if at all, that must be kept secret.

Given the alleged circumstances that hospitals and treatment centers in West Africa are overwhelmed by the number of patients they are allegedly receiving it would likely take 2 days just to come up with the lab results alone that could confirm whether or not a patient has contracted ebola. Let alone that these people would be cured in that same time frame. How will you cure someone when you don’t even know what he/she is suffering from?

But then again, they are throwing up to 83% of the dead bodies in graves without providing an official cause of death.

So my demand in this specific matter is not only give us some real pictures of actual ebola cases and patients – in order to document and archive those as evidence and references for medical staff and literature in the future – but also provide the authentic lab results to the international community, the real results. Not the ones that have been tampered with or have been fabricated.

UPDATE 14. Sept. 27, 2014

About the 75% of  the patients being women… (update #6)

It has been mentioned a few times now in private communications with me that something is not right about that percentage, even when considering the official narrative about it that women wash the dead bodies.

I might as well just say and write it openly here just as some people, including myself, deem it to be more than possible that women in the affected countries of the fraudulent ebola outbreak are being targeted in order to negatively alter and influence the birth rate and reproduction ability in Africa, starting in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. That is what several knowledgeable persons keep in mind to be possibly the case and the most reasonable explanation for the 75% of patients being women.

And it is not just internet investigators and freelance journalists who find it remarkable and strange that so many women are dying there from whatever they have contracted, lab-created or not.

For example, Frieda Schmidt brings up this most appropriate question and she’s not a conspiracy nutcase:

frieda schmidt, Is it common for the majority of survivors to be male?

Her question was in response to these pictures – 1, 2 – posted on Facebook by theMinistry of Health and Social Welfare, Republic of Liberia. On that same FB page we also find another valuable post describing what ebola is.

  • “What is Ebola?It is Bloody: Ebola is what scientists call a hemorrhagic fever – it operates by making its victims bleed from almost anywhere on their body. Usually, victims bleed to death from Ebola.”

That comes from the Liberian government and is a solid debunking of the World Health Organization and NBC News their report in which they claim that the bleeding is merely a tale (update #8). This proves beyond all doubts that the WHO – the United Nations – is attempting to rewrite and to reprogram the medical literature and what people know about the ebola virus. This is by itself a strong indicator that indeed we should be very concerned that 75% of the victims are women. It also further indicates that all the governments and the UN are lying about the whole outbreak.

Yes, there were/are likely some cases of ebola or cases that look very similar and these continue to justify the entire scam. I have written this several times by now but I’ll repeat it again here for the deniers who still seem to be completely convinced that their government and the UN thugs would never sell us any lies.

News24: Sierra Leone crowds mistakenly celebrate ‘end of Ebola’

I find this news article too strange to ignore. It has so far not passed my sniff test and therefore I will include it as an update in the Truth Sector ebola report. I will give notice should the status of this update change at any time.

  • Witnesses reported crowds surging into the streets of the northern commercial hub of Makeni, chanting “Ebola is no more” and “Ebola has been defeated. Locals said celebrations began late on Monday when a group of suspected Ebola victims were released from a holding centre with negative lab test results. This was misinterpreted to mean that the township was totally free from Ebola and the news, which spread like wildfire, sent hundreds into the streets to celebrate. … Riot police dispersed the crowds and slapped a dusk-till-dawn curfew on residents. … It was a false alarm by some people with ill intentions,” said local police spokesperson Ibrahim Samura told AFP. … Witnesses said similar scenes of celebration unfolded in the northwestern town of Port Loko, the capital of a district of the same name which is also quarantined.”

There were simultaneous celebrations occurring in Makeni and Port Loko, Sierra Leone. The problem that I have with this news report is that the two places are 100 km apart. This is too far to be regarded as a neighboring town and if the transportation and the roads in Sierra Leone are somewhat the same as here in the Philippines then it would take you about three hours to cover that distance by bus. Therefore, the only possible explanation for the simultaneous celebrations would be the spreading of the news through (mobile) phones and online. That would in turn again prove that the population in Sierra Leone is capable to communicate through the internet and mobile phones, infrastructure that would certainly be used to also upload and spread photos of ebola patients and their symptoms – photos we have not seen in more than 6 months.

Whether this is just another sign of the locals being suppressed and having a foreign scam further pushed upon them I’m not sure yet but once again the western media’s silence in this matter speaks volumes to me.

September 20, 2014

For those people who have been sleeping since March 2014, take notes and pay attention because I am literally sick and tired of repeating in vain that THE 2014 EBOLA OUTBREAK IS A PROVEN FRAUD.

Let me repeat that one more time: THE 2014 EBOLA OUTBREAK IS A PROVEN FRAUD!

First of all, there is no ebola in the very epicenter of the fraudulent outbreak. Do most people on this planet even understand what that means?

THERE ARE NO CASES OF EBOLA IN THE EPICENTER – THE SOURCE – OF THE OUTBREAK. That has been confirmed by the BBC TWICE.

So the jive about natural cases of ebola in Guinea is a fabricated narrative to get you conditioned and afraid enough to accept enforced vaccinations.

Moving on to the next pieces of evidence that prove that this ebola outbreak is A FRAUD on par with the man made global warming scam and the false war on terror, which are all as fake as the three latest ISIS beheadings videos.

Just pay attention for a while and stop watching those reruns of Oprah, Big Brother and Idol.

The official and mainstream reporting about 8 health representatives that were killed in Guinea on Tuesday – of which 3 UN World Health Organization reps had their throat slit, in the area of the EBOLA-FREE epicenter of the fraudulent 2014 outbreak, has all references to the presence of WHO representatives scrubbed from the online news articles and reports. What this means is just as clear and easy to understand as the words THERE ARE NO EBOLA CASES IN THE EPICENTER OF THE OUTBREAK.

The fact that the United Nations wants all references to the WHO representatives in the Guinea delegation scrubbed from the web means that the UN does not want a true investigation there into what happened in Nzerekore, Guinea, where the 8 dead bodies were found in the septic tank of a town. Admitting that UN people were part of the delegation would require the UN itself to actually investigate the murder cases but the United Nations do not want any real investigations going on in the EBOLA-FREE epicenter of the fraudulent 2014 outbreak because the truth would be exposed and that would mean the END of this FAKED and HYPED UP ebola outbreak. It would also mean the end of dubious money transfers into the pockets and private bank accounts of big pharma like GSK, Ban ki Moon and his goon squads at the UN and the WHO.

Moving on to the next pieces of evidence… DAILY MAIL FAIL.

The pictorial of this article in the Daily Mail proves that they can not even keep up with the debunking of their official ebola narrative.

Monrovia is NOT located in Sierra Leone, it is located in Liberia. So is the JFK Medical Center but according to the Mail Online, and everyone who has blindly copy-pasted this – and that are a lot of people and other news websites, both places are in Sierra Leone. What a fail. How desperate are they, one must ask?

daily mail, fail, ebola, fraud, s, sierra leone, liberiaam

Think that is all in this Daily Mail Fail? Not so…

Or how about this one. UPI, United Press International since 1907. Also according to UPI Monrovia is located in Sierra Leone…

upi, united press international, fail, ebola, fraud, sierra leone, liberia, jfk medical center, monrovia

RFI

rfi, fail, ebola, fraud, sierra leone, liberia, jfk medical center, monrovia

My goodness people!

The fake character and the lies of this 2014 ebola scam are right in your faces staring at you all, over and over again, yet most of the folks out there around the world still believe the entire world is endangered by an ebola outbreak in Africa.

Let me recap just one last time so you cannot miss what has been written here today.

  • There are no ebola cases in the epicenter of the fabricated outbreak. This was admitted by the BBC, two times. This means that no one had ebola in the very area where the fake outbreak started.
  • Monrovia is not located in Sierra Leone. Neither is the JFK Medical Center. They are both located in Liberia. Yet Daily Mail, UPI, RFI and several others will make you believe they are located in Sierra Leone.
  • The UN World Health Organization is scrubbing all references to their representatives who had their throats slit in Guinea in the very area of the fabled epicenter of the outbreak. Scrubbed because if not then it would require the United Nations to launch a real investigation into the murders. That would reveal eventually that the UN and WHO have been spinning lies all along about the 2014 ebola outbreak. Yes, for the money yes!

All I can do is point out the already obvious. Those who do not want to accept the fact that they have been lied to BIG TIME about the fabled ebola outbreak of this year, well, there is little hope left for those people then. They will literally believe it when one day the New York Times will tell them that Mars is going to collapse in their back yards.

So be sure to spread this report with everyone you know. That is the least we can do together to stop this madness from continuing any longer.

Police Investigating Alleged Vote Fraud In Glasgow

“The Corporation” addresses electoral fraud in the Scottish Independence Referendum. Hmm . . . -LW

Officials in Glasgow are investigating ten suspected cases of electoral fraud following the historic Scottish independence referendum on Thursday.

Colin Edgar of the Glasgow city council said that police were called in after ten occurrences of alleged fraud took place.

“We’ve had a number of suggestions over the course of the day that people have turned up at the polling station to vote and they appear to have voted already,” said Edgar. “So what’s happening tonight is we know which boxes those votes went into and we know the numbers on the votes, so the police have asked us to identify those votes, to take them away, keep them for evidence and hand them to them.”

Edgar said that fraud could have taken place because voters are not required to present identification at polling places in UK elections.

“Somebody turned up to vote, they gave their name, the presiding officer went to cross off their name on their list of voters to give them a ballot paper and found that their name had already been crossed off and a ballot paper already issued to somebody who apparently had the same name,” Edgar said.

“We contacted police straight away. The police asked us if we could recover the ballot papers, which we can because we know which box they’re in and we know the number on the ballot paper.”

Edgar stated that the ballots will be traced and secured before handing them to police. Each ballot contains an individual number, so staff members will be searching through the ballots to find the ten in question. If found, they will be separated from the hundreds of thousands of other ballots.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said the agency “takes the safety and security of the independence referendum extremely seriously and is working with partner agencies including local authorities and the chief counting officer to ensure the integrity of the ballot”.

American shakedown: Police won’t charge you, but they’ll grab your money

U.S. police are operating a co-ordinated scheme to seize as much of the public’s cash as they can

By Neil Macdonald, CBC News Posted: Sep 11, 2014 5:00 AM ET Last Updated: Sep 11, 2014 5:00 AM ET

In the U.S., a cash-grab by police and government is dressed up in terms like “interdiction and forfeiture,” or “the equitable sharing program.” (CBC)

On its official website, the Canadian government informs its citizens that “there is no limit to the amount of money that you may legally take into or out of the United States.” Nonetheless, it adds, banking in the U.S. can be difficult for non-residents, so Canadians shouldn’t carry large amounts of cash.

That last bit is excellent advice, but for an entirely different reason than the one Ottawa cites.

There’s a shakedown going on in the U.S., and the perps are in uniform.

Across America, law enforcement officers — from federal agents to state troopers right down to sheriffs in one-street backwaters — are operating a vast, co-ordinated scheme to grab as much of the public’s cash as they can; “hand over fist,” to use the words of one police trainer.

Roadside seizure

It usually starts on the road somewhere. An officer pulls you over for some minor infraction — changing lanes without proper signalling, following the car ahead too closely, straddling lanes. The offence is irrelevant.

Then the police officer wants to chat, asking questions about where you’re going, or where you came from, and why. He’ll peer into your car, then perhaps ask permission to search it, citing the need for vigilance against terrorist weaponry or drugs.

What he’s really looking for, though, is money.

And if you were foolish (or intimidated) enough to have consented to the search, and you’re carrying any significant amount of cash, you are now likely to lose it.

The officer will probably produce a waiver, saying that if you just sign over the money then the whole matter will just disappear, and you’ll be able to go on your way.

Refuse to sign it, and he may take the cash anyway, proclaiming it the probable proceeds of drugs or some other crime.

Either way, you almost certainly won’t be charged with anything; the objective is to take your money, not burden the system.

You’ll have the right to seek its return in court, but of course that will mean big lawyer’s fees, and legally documenting exactly where the money came from. You will need to prove you are not a drug dealer or a terrorist.

It might take a year or two. And several trips back to the jurisdiction where you were pulled over. Sorry.

In places like Tijuana, police don’t make any pretense about this sort of thing. Here in the U.S., though, it’s dressed up in terms like “interdiction and forfeiture,” or “the equitable sharing program.”

Authorities claim it’s legal, but some prosecutors and judges have called it what it is: abuse.

In any case, it’s a nasty American reality.

Powers and justifications

Seizing suspected drug money has been legal here for decades, but after 9/11 police acquired a whole new set of powers and justifications. And they set about using them for profit.

‘The Washington Post this week reported that in the past 13 years, there have been 61,998 cash seizures on roadways and elsewhere without use of search warrants. The total haul: $2.5 billion.’

The total haul: $2.5 billion, divided pretty much equally between the U.S. government and state and local authorities (hence the Kafkaesque “equitable sharing” euphemism).

Half of the seizures, according to the Post, were below $8,800. Only a sixth of those who had money taken from them pursued its return.

Some, no doubt, were indeed drug dealers or money launderers and just walked away from the money. Others just couldn’t spare the expense and time of going to court.

Of those who did, though, nearly half got their money back, a statistic that fairly screams about the legitimacy of the seizures.

So does another fact: In many cases, authorities offer half the money back – money they’d claimed was proceeds of crime. And when they do issue a cheque, they almost always insist their victim sign a legal release promising never to sue.

It would also appear police like to target minorities, who tend to be cooperative and less likely to hire a lawyer.

Civil rights advocates have documented all sorts of outright legal theft:

  • The (minority) businessman from Georgia who was relieved of $75,000 he’d raised from relatives to buy a restaurant in Louisiana.
  • The (minority) church leaders who were carrying nearly $30,000 from their Baltimore parishioners to carry out church activities in North Carolina and El Salvador.
  • The young college grad with no criminal record on his way to a job interview out West who was relieved of $2,500 lent to him by his dad for the trip.

News outlets here have reported many such abuses over the years. But the Washington Post’s latest investigation exposes money-grabbing as big business.

It involves a nationwide network of enforcement agencies (except in the few states that have banned it) that operates with the help of a vast private intelligence service called “Black Asphalt” (police forces pay an enrolment fee of $19.95). The network uses consultants and trainers who either charge fees or operate on contingency, keeping a percentage of cash seized by their police pupils.

Police forces use the money to finance their departmental budgets, sometimes spending it on luxury vehicles, first-class tickets to conferences, and lavish quarters. They regard the money as rightfully theirs. One prosecutor used seized cash to defend herself against a lawsuit brought by people whose cash she seized.

It’s just human nature, really.

Give police the legal ability to take someone’s money, and to claim it’s in the national interest, and then tell them they can keep a nice chunk of it, and what other result could there be?

Travel advice

So, for any law-abiding Canadian thinking about an American road trip, here’s some non-official advice:

Avoid long chats if you’re pulled over. Answer questions politely and concisely, then persistently ask if you are free to go.

Don’t leave litter on the vehicle floor, especially energy drink cans.

Don’t use air or breath fresheners; they could be interpreted as an attempt to mask the smell of drugs.

Don’t be too talkative. Don’t be too quiet. Try not to wear expensive designer clothes. Don’t have tinted windows.

And for heaven’s sake, don’t consent to a search if you are carrying a big roll of legitimate cash.

As the Canadian government notes, there is no law against carrying it here or any legal limit on how much you can carry. But if you’re on an American roadway with a full wallet, in the eyes of thousands of cash-hungry cops you’re a rolling ATM.
