  1. There are people that are controlling every part of the world. They are a group of very wealthy families. Like the monarchy of England. England's monarchies goal was to control the world many generations ago. History books say that they relinquished control of India, Africa and other places. I don't think they really did. I believe they inserted people to control various countries for a large amount of money to ensure that the families name will live on through out history and they would never need money to survive. I don't know who are the puppet masters. As you can see in this video, they have a lot of puppets, of all races. I believe the large corporations are owned by the puppet masters but are under other peoples names. They pay people to invent things etc. They are paid handsomely each according to their level and contribution to their cause. I use to wonder why does England need the monarchy when they have a Prime Minister? Those countries that refused to get under the umbrella are countries that refused to get under the umbrella, where those countries we were at war with. I do believe that some of those countries have some horrible things going on there but so does the U.S.. Uganda had idi amin, Germany had hitler, Italy had mussolini, Russian had Stalin, U.S. has trump. They are all over from the beginning of the civilization of man. here we are in the year 2000 and as blatant as hell they are treating people of color like trash. Years ago you could not find a man of color working as a police officer or a prison guard. Now they are all over the place. Ask yourself why has is changed. Don't tell me it is for equal opportunity, when everything else they are doing contradicts those very words. Don't believe everything you have read in the history books because we are finding out that a lot of what we were taught were not true or was embellished. You have to watch an listen. Talk to your elders you young folk learn from their experiences. They say history repeats itself. It really does because the people that have planned these various episodes keep using the same game plan only with a few different twists in it. Read. Read Greek mythology and history. Oh I have learned so much these 72 years and I feel like I am watching the suffering of millions and the cruelty of rulers and there is not a damn thing than can be done or won't be done. It takes years to control peoples minds. They are pretty slick. They hire the best psychologists of the time to come up with ways to control people. They use prisoners as guinea pigs.

  2. THERE IS NO PANDEMIC globally; The World Health Organization estimates the common flu kills 290.000 to 650,000 people each year. Until the Covid 19 virus kills more than 650,000 people; it is less deadly than the common flu virus. Corona viruses have been around for 60 years. There are 36 different strains of corona virus, 4 of them have been known to cause infection for a long time. Corona viruses cause between 20-40% of the flu that we see worldwide. Screening tests are not specific enough to differentiate between any of those 36 different strains of virus. It is highly likely that everyone in the world has had some exposure to a corona virus and has probably had some infection of a corona virus somewhere in their lifetime. What most people don't know is that any 'test' for a virus does not test for a specific virus: It tests for antibodies that show up in your immune system to fight a virus. If someone tests positive, what does that actually mean? It means that at some time in your life your body developed certain antibodies to fight certain viruses. So if you test positive, does that mean you have an active infection? Does that mean you had an infection in the past? Does that mean you have an active infection of one of the 36 strains that have been around for 60 years? If you test positive does it mean that you’re sick? Or does it mean that you’ve been exposed to one of these 36 strains of corona virus and that it doesn’t bother your immune system? If you test positive for antibodies that fight corona virus, which strain of corona virus do you have? The new recommendations from the American CDC (and in Canada also)… is if someone is in the hospital with a respiratory issue and they die… then even if you have not tested them… or you tested them and they were not positive…you’re supposed to write on the death certificate “Co-morbidity”. This is driving the numbers up to maintain the agenda of mass hysteria, mass panic and mass fear.. It keeps the panic churning. . It is estimated that 12,000-16,000 deaths annually since 2010 can be blamed on the common flu virus in America alone each year. At least 8,200 people have died this season from the common flu virus in America. NOT from .the corona virus. The reason for these low members is the common flu is now being misdiagnosed as the corona virus. Otherwise the common flu deaths would be about normal: 12,000-16,000 deaths, AND BE IGNORED. There are 3.91 millions deaths caused by respiratory illnesses every year globally. HOW MANY RESPIRATORY DEATHS HAVE BEEN USED TO CREATE THIS HOAX? Recent studies by medical experts have revealed that the rate of infections is much larger by order of many magnitudes. As a result of the increased number of infected people; the death rate for Covid 19 has changed from 1.3% to roughly about .01%… Dr. Fauci himself told the medical community that Covid 19 is a seasonal flu with a mortality rate of .01%… A .01% death rate IS NOT A PANDEMIC… IT Is A HOAX.. Fauci has MILLIONS INVESTED IN VACCINES. Globally, there are 17-18 million deaths each year. Of the 32 main causes of deaths the corona virus ranks at the bottom of the list. Each year there are 3 million newborns who die in the world of pneumonia and 50,000 adults in the United States for the same cause, WITHOUT ALARMS BEING ISSUED. In many cases, they are misdiagnosing the common flu and calling it Covid 19. Anyone who dies of a respiratory ailment is being marked down as dying from Covid 19 They are lying to you. The numbers are being deliberately falsified. THERE ARE NO RELIABLE TESTS that can tell the difference between Covid 19 and all the other flu viruses… never mind the 36 different Corona viruses!!.. ‘ There is NO real “Covid-19” What it is, is that “they” invented a miserable “corona-virus “test”, which as it has been very recently been documented and written in the official U.S. Medical Library Records, is not and cannot detect any actual “Covid-19″… and instead it only detects “corona-viruses” existence in general in the human body… The so called “test” (and we are talking about the so called “credible” one which is working on the molecular level), in addition to the above, also, cannot detect the amount of the “corona-viruses” in the human body… which is crucial in order for a patient to be determined as an actual patient of a FLU…’ NEWS FLASH Updated numbers from the CDC reveal only 9,210 American have died from Covid 19. The stats for overall seasonal death rates this year across Europe are the same if not less than for any other year. The official figures for 24 countries across Europe show, not only that overall mortality is not increasing, but – so far – it is actually well below recent averages. virus-panic/ Johan Giesecke (ex state epidemiologist, WHO advisor, chief scientist/European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention) “I think of it is as a severe seasonal influenza”; “Someone right now is dying from pneumonia and it will absolutely be impossible to isolate this year’s version of corona virus from other forms of respiratory ailments by exclusively claiming it as a causative factor in death. That is criminal negligence. The problem, is that “corona virus” (due to mass media over-magnification) will end up stealing stats from the 1.5-3 million pneumonia cases per year and the 3/4 to 1 million flu cases. In fact, it already is.” Dr. Pablo Goldschmidt is an Argentine-French virologist ;. “There is no evidence to show that the 2019 corona virus is more lethal than respiratory adenoviruses, influenza viruses, corona viruses from previous years, or rhinoviruses responsible for the common cold.” This a scam. Dr. Michael Levitt Professor of biochemistry at Stanford University. “The number of deaths of corona virus in Italy is 10% of the number of deaths of influenza in the country between 2016-2017. German Network for Evidence-Based Medicine “In the majority of cases, COVID-19 takes the form of a mild cold or is even symptom-free. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that all cases of infection are recorded, in contrast with deaths which are almost completely recorded. This leads to an overestimation of the CFR. (Case Fatality Rate) An overestimation of the Case Fatality Rate also occurs when a deceased person is found to have been infected with SARS-CoV-2, but this was not the actual cause of death. The CDC just reported that 94% of Covid deaths had other medical issues. Dr Richard Schabas former Chief Medical Officer of Ontario: “Quarantine belongs back in the Middle Ages. Save your masks for robbing banks. Stay calm and carry on. Let’s not make our attempted cures worse than the disease.” Globe and Mail, 11th March 2020’ “Strictly by the numbers, the corona virus does not register as a dire global crisis” ‘You don’t need to be an expert to see the causes for the concentration in Northern Italy and NYC. as Florence has about 300,000 legal Chinese immigrants taking over its manufacturing, in addition to countless illegal Chinese, who make regular and continuous trips back & forth to Wuhan. Once the outbreak in China became known, and China began complaining a few weeks later that calling it a Chinese- or Wuhan-virus was “racist,” the mayor of Florence encouraged the Italian residents of Florence to “hug a Chinese” to show support. Again, there was a constant traffic between Florence & Wuhan at that time. And Florence apparently has the second oldest population in Europe, if not in the world.’ If you watch this video; You will understand that the virus was created in a laboratory in Wuhan China…. Second… the global economy has been slowing down for years and a major depression was about to happen anyways… Third: What the Chinese CCP govt did was purposefully spread the virus and wait until there was enough ''reason'' to institute martial law and crack down on its population in order to terrorize and intimidate them because they knew a major economic depression was going to hit China…. If the CCP had not spread the virus, the Chinese people would have blamed them for the depression… This way, the inevitable depression could be blamed on the virus, not on the govt.. What happened next is that all the other govts that knew of the economic slowdown, who knew that a major global depression was coming, latched on to the fake Chinese ""pandemic"" scare and pushed this hoax globally: to avoid being blamed for the oncoming recession/depression. Why did they do this? Because spreading: MASS FEAR; MASS PANIC; MASS PARANOIA; MASS SURVEILLANCE: MASS OBEDIENCE TO THE AUTHORITIES; MASS HYSTERIA: MASS CONFORMITY MASS BRAINWASHING: Is always good for the ruling class…. MASS IMPOVERISHMENT of the electorate; Making billions of people TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON THEIR GOVTS…. While the .01% get richer from HUGE bailouts to the banks and corporations. The most draconian military enforced lockdown since March has been Peru and they have the highest mortality from Covid in the world. Can you say one-world governed by FEAR and HYSTERIA? Can you say GLOBAL BRAINWASHING? Billions of the world’s masses are being impoverished due to this hoax. Over 50.million people died of the 1920 pandemic: COMPARE THAT TO THIS FUCKING HOAX. MASS FEAR; MASS PARANOIA; MASS CONFORMITY; POLICE STATE MARTIAL LAW. While destroying your society, your lives and your livelihoods… WAKE UP YOU ARE BEING BRAINWASHED INTO ILLOGICAL FEAR.

  3. Hundreds of doctors around the world has exposed that The PCR test cannot identify this virus and you cannot have a pandemic with a 99% recovery rate, Why aren’t you interviewing these doctors and scientists Is this real news or operation mockingbird news

  4. OK…
    Real talk here.
    We cannot nor should we release all those prisoners.
    Especially now.
    On the eve of the second wave of the virus.
    It would make the situation far more dire for all considering how far Covid-19 has already spread within the prison system. You'd literally have thousands of "Typhoid Marys" and "Typhoid Larrys" across the country spreading the virus and worsening our current situation.
    Best to leave them where they are for the time being.
    At the very least…
    That large segment of infected are already quarantined.
    If we release them now,
    We can forget any chance of flattening the curve.

  5. A little edited. Not long, just a short piece, but it's fine for its length. I wish these people well, starting with Ed, but also the rest of the family as well as possible. Ericka talks of discrimination and that sort of govt conduct is absolutely unacceptable.

  6. COVID 19

    The COVID Plandemic Has Everything to Do
    With The New World Order Agenda

    With each new crisis they create
    They move the world
    More and More
    Into Their Enclosing Grip
    of Global Control

    They engineered the virus to
    Serve as the Test Run
    For More Future Pandemics
    As The Global Elite
    Intend To Reduce The World's Population
    By 90 Percent To Below 500 Million.

    The Restrictions Placed On Society
    To Force Objectives Through
    That Otherwise Would Never be accepted
    Unless People Believed
    There was a real threat that

    Justifies these levels
    Of control not to mention
    The Non-Stop COVID Propaganda
    We are all subjected to nonstop.

  7. If you are a criminal, and depending on the crime… you have no rights to be protected from Covid or much else!!!!! In other countries they are executed for rape!!

  8. I can barely watch this report. It makes me sick to my stomach and my heart to know that so many african americans are subjected to naked abuse by their own governments. The systemic violence visited on good caring people for all the wrong reasons is so hard to take when we are so helpless against it. Thanks for these reports. They should help us all find deeper ways to care about racial injustice. Love to you all.

  9. Great story, we need to free all our political prisoners and put safeguards in place to ensure we don't arrest folx just for advocating for communities of color.

  10. I've watched so many video from this channel and support you. Just giving my honest opinion that this title is so dumb to me. It comes off as unthoughtful. People scrolling by will instinctively think this channel is…. not for people that think critically. People are in jail because they were convicted or charged with a crime. Im sure that many people in prisons don't deserve to be there for TONS of reasons but this title is just so so so so so dumb. Keep up the good work! This channel is probably one of the only channels I share ❤️

  11. *Covid "cases" and "deaths" are literally based on propoganda.*
    One can look at either:
    – the case guidelines
    – the coding protocols
    – the 94% cormorbitites
    – contact tracing inventing cases
    – the monetary incentives
    to begin questioning things. *(all included and sourced below:)*

    Blindly believing the MSM without doing any research is about the stupidest thing one can do, as they are legalized liars.🤘

    *Sourcing w/ summaries:*

    *Covid Coding*

    >An emergency ICD-10 code of ‘U07.2 COVID-19, virus not identified’ is assigned to a clinical or epidemiological diagnosis of COVID-19 *where laboratory confirmation is inconclusive or not available.*

    >Both U07.1 and U07.2 *may be used for mortality coding as cause of death.* See the International guidelines for certification and classification (coding) of COVID-19 as cause of death following the link below.

    so basically you can be diagnosed at anytime without a test, which is the opposite of how medical errors are coded:

    >Bob Anderson, chief of the mortality statistics branch for the CDC, disputed that the agency’s coding is the problem. He said complications from medical care are listed on death certificates, and that codes do capture them. The CDC’s published mortality statistics, however, count only the “underlying cause of death,” defined as the condition that led a person to seek treatment.
    *As a result, even if a doctor does list medical errors on a death certificate, they are not included in the published totals. Only the underlying condition, such as heart disease or cancer, is counted, even when it isn’t fatal.*

    i think the problem lies in people's unwarranted faith in the healthcare system, when it was designed since the prohibition of hemp/marijuana to become a "for profit" industry that creates patients rather than cures them. this makes it much harder for people to realize they are being lied to

    *Covid Guidelines to determine cases:*

    aka if you display any common symptoms for any common illness (like a cough) or maybe went to a place where someone might have coughed, you could be determined positive through contact tracing. Contact tracing assumes all people are positive, due to potential asymptomatic cases which is why the case count is inflated

    Medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death year after year according to an 8 year Johns Hopkins study (doctors are people too and make mistakes):

    *Doctors take bribes and kickbacks to prescibe medications, even if it's known to be deadly like Fentanyl, so why would Covid be any different:*


    >“The idea that hospitals and doctors are falsely inflating COVID numbers and even putting patients on ventilators to drive up their payments is not just ridiculous, but it’s insulting to the doctors who are putting their own lives at risk,” said Joe Hanel, spokesperson for the Colorado Health Institute.

    *interesting, because nationally, the next link shows how MAYBE 21% would be under the age of 65 and not on Medicare, everyone else was a senior citizen:* (38,000 out of 180,000)

    94% of Covid deaths involves 2.6 comorbities, is this akin to medical errors and they just report the statistics however they want?

    this is just a continuation of dishonesty. Today we live off the byproducts of the oil industry rather than using hemp…which is why it and MMJ was made illegal…because corporate profits suffered. Following this trail, tobacco industries created the roadmap for funding bias in science and medicine, and it's never been trustworthy since. Nixon solidified "for profit" healthcare with the HMO Act of 1973 for his buddy Edgar Kaiser, then CEO of Kaiser Permanente

    *PCR Testing* (can go into more detail upon request but it's common knowledge they're BS) PCR is for research not diagnostic use.

    Look into how nefarious the company is that makes these PCR tests and how their CEO(Rick Martin) was sued and fired (over the Florida fake tests), how their parent company, Baxter/Travenol, historically has created illnessness to cure and has been sued over 7 times for this…
    MicrogenDX/IDT/ Baxter International Inc.

    < *the arguement then becomes "but what about excess deaths?"* >

    I agree many people didn't go to the hospital for conditions, or were turned away, and thus died. At the very least the quality of life and life expectancy of many will be lowered:

    A record number of healthcare workers were laid off during the pandemic:

    The media didn't help with the fear mongering propoganda portrayed, especially once the pandemic became political, which exacerbated the fear.

    *We'd be dishonest to say those excess deaths are a majority Covid related, other than people avoiding care for fear of catching Covid19.*

    This shows how many Covid cases are in the US:

    8.5 Million Cases in a Population of 330 million = *2.57%*

    more than likely (97%+ probability) it was a different cause
    this is going by the OFFICIAL numbers (look at the sources) which are MASSIVELY inflated
