Indian soldiers unarmed and caught by surprise in China clash, families say

REUTERS

Indian soldiers who died in close combat with Chinese troops last month were unarmed and surrounded by a larger force on a steep ridge, Indian government sources, two soldiers deployed in the area and families of the fallen men said.

One of the Indian soldiers had his throat slit with metal nails in the darkness, his father told Reuters, saying he had been told by a fellow soldier who was there.

Others fell to their deaths in the freezing waters of the Galwan river in the western Himalayas, relatives have learned from witnesses.

Twenty Indian soldiers died in the June 15 clash on the de facto border separating the two armies. The soldiers all belonged to the 16th Bihar Regiment deployed in the Galwan region.

No shots were fired, but it was the biggest loss of life in combat between the nuclear-armed neighbors since 1967, when the simmering border dispute flared into deadly battles.

Reuters spoke to relatives of 13 of the men who were killed, and in five cases they produced death certificates listing horrific injuries suffered during the six-hour night-time clash at 14,000 ft (4,267 meters) amid remote, barren mountains.

Reuters contacted the military hospital in India’s Ladakh region where the bodies were brought. The hospital declined to comment on the cause of death and said that the bodies were sent to the families along with the death certificates.

Reuters also spoke to two soldiers of the Bihar Regiment deployed in the area, who were among those who accompanied the bodies of fallen colleagues to their homes in the area. They were not directly involved in the melee.

The soldiers cannot be named because of military rules and all the families asked for anonymity because they said they were not supposed to speak about military matters.

The Indian Defence Ministry did not respond to a request for comment on the fighting on June 15.

In response to a Reuters query, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson repeated previous statements blaming the Indian side for crossing the de facto border and provoking the Chinese.

“When Chinese officers and soldiers went there to negotiate, they were suddenly and violently attacked by the Indian troops,” the spokesperson said. “The rights and wrongs of the incident are very clear. The responsibility absolutely does not lie with the Chinese.”

China has not provided evidence of Indian aggression. China’s Defense Ministry did not respond to a request for comment.

Three of the dead men had their “arteries ruptured in the neck” and two sustained head injuries caused by “sharp or pointed objects,” the death certificates seen by Reuters said.

There were visible marks on the neck and forehead, all five documents said.

“It was a free-for-all, they fought with whatever they could lay their hands on — rods, sticks, and even with their bare hands,” said a government official in Delhi briefed on the clash.

The Indian government has said that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) acted in a premeditated manner, but it has not provided a full account of the clash that stunned the country and stoked popular anger against China.

China has dismissed an Indian government minister’s claim that China had lost 40 soldiers from the PLA’s western theater command deployed in Galwan.

Its envoy to Delhi suggested in remarks to local media and posted on the embassy website that there had been losses on both sides.

“The Indian Army suddenly and violently attacked the Chinese officers and soldiers who went for negotiation, causing fierce physical conflicts and casualties between the two sides,” Sun Weidong said.

Indian government officials have told Reuters that the conflict began when the commanding officer of the Bihar regiment led a small party to Patrol Point 14 to verify whether the Chinese had made good their promise to withdraw from the disputed site and dismantle structures they had built there.

But instead they came under attack by Chinese soldiers using iron rods and wooden clubs with nails studded in them on a narrow ledge barely four meters wide overlooking the Galwan river.

In recent weeks, the world’s two most populous countries have mobilized more forces along the 3,488 km Line of Actual Control (LAC), and the renewed hostilities have triggered a diplomatic and commercial spat that threatens to escalate, experts including former Indian military officers say.

The possibility that unarmed Indian soldiers were overrun by a larger force could further fuel resentment against China and raise questions about why Indian soldiers were sent to a tense front line without being armed.

“How dare China kill our unarmed soldiers. Why were our soldiers sent unarmed to martyrdom?” Rahul Gandhi, leader of the main opposition Congress party wrote in a tweet, demanding the government provide a full account.

A relative of one of the soldiers who accompanied Col. Santosh Babu, the commanding officer, to the site of two tents erected by the Chinese troops told Reuters that members of the Indian patrol were unarmed.

They were confronted by a small group of Chinese soldiers and an argument ensued over the tents and a small observation tower the relative said, on the basis of conversations with two other soldiers who were present.

Reuters was unable to establish all of the details of what happened, but government officials in New Delhi briefed on the incident said that at some point Indian troops took down the observation post and the tents because they were on India’s side of the LAC.

Soon after the Indian side came under attack from a large Chinese force that pelted them with stones and attacked them with sharp-edged weapons, according to the families of three dead Indian soldiers, based on conversations they had with survivors.

Some soldiers retreated to safety on the ridge-line in the darkness, but when they could not find the commanding officer, they re-emerged and came under fresh attack, four family members said.

Babu was among those killed in the fighting, the Indian government said. One of the soldiers deployed in the area that Reuters spoke to said the Indian patrol was outnumbered by the PLA.

“The Chinese side overwhelmed our people by sheer numbers,” said the soldier, who overheard radio messages seeking reinforcements being sent to regional headquarters in Ladakh.

Three of the Indian families said they had been told by soldiers who were commissioned to bring the bodies back to them that some combatants pushed each other into the fast-flowing Galwan river.

The government official in Delhi also said bodies of some soldiers were fished out of the river the next morning. Some had succumbed to hypothermia, the official added. (Click to Source)

CASHLESS SOCIETY 2020: Bill Gates Goes Viral on Digital ID and Digital Currency

This may be my most important article to date. Bill Gates went viral in several controversial interviews last month, advocating mandatory digital ID as proof of coronavirus vaccination as soon as a vaccine is available. The proof will be required, if Gates has his way, before anyone is allowed in large public gatherings.

Gates has also funded research to create digital personal ID vaccination tattoos to make proof of vaccination visually and electronically apparent. And Gates has long advocated becoming a cashless society using digital ID.

Coronavirus is handing Gates the world he said he wanted 20+ years ago — a world he said he would do everything in his power to bring about. (Not the diseased aspect, but the changes coming with that disease.) How ironic (or is it?) for a man whose charitable work has focused on vaccinating the world against viral diseases.

Bill Gates says proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be mandatory

It sounds like something straight out of the The Apocalypse, but Bill Gates has funded development of a digital tattoo that he now publicly says should be required for people to live in public now that a everyone in the world now lives under the overhang of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

One possible requirement … is the mandatory participation in a global vaccine program, underwritten by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Big Pharma and an assortment of other people who supposedly have the best interest of the global citizenry in mind.

Strategic Culture Foundation

If Bill Gates has his way, the government must make sure all people who participate in public events are vaccinated before they are allowed to join in the fun.

He created so much stir that some of the videos of Gates making that statement, which I saved links to as I composed this article, are “no longer available.” Gates referred in the videos to “immunity passports,” calling them a “digital certificate.” Other aspects of Bill Gates’ work indicate those “immunity passports” will be in the form of digital tattoos on the back of your hand or forearm.

I heard this interview with Bill Gates a little over week ago. When I started writing this article, I searched all over to try to find the interview. Most versions of the interview that had not been pulled had the controversial parts edited out. Finally I found this one that had not been edited. All of which is to say, don’t be surprised if it mysteriously disappears from YouTube before you even read this article or also gets edited.

Here is my own transcript in case the video gets scrubbed:

Eventually what we will have to have is certificates of who’s a recovered person and who’s a vaccinated person because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control — sadly. You don’t want to completely block off the ability for those people to go there and come back and move around, so eventually there will be sort of this digital immunity proof that will help facilitate the global re-opening up.

The implication is clearly that you will not be allowed to move around the world freely and publicly without that “digital immunity certificate.”

In case this unedited video I was able to find gets pulled or edited, I also found this one, describing a “different world” that includes the digital proof near the end:

Corroboration of statements by Bill Gates about digital indentification

For further corroboration, you can see an interview on Fox with Attorney General William Barr responding to questions about Gates’ digital vaccine tracking, showing Gates clearly said such things, though not specifically the digital tattoo concept.

Dr. Fauci also says digital ID certificates of immunity are being seriously talked about as part of what the nation needs to put in place to open back up: (Skip to the 2:26 mark.)

And, then, here is Congressman Ron Paul addressing the Bill Gates statement about digital immunity certificates:

As you can see, the idea went mainstream and is being talked about everywhere. The authority of big global government sweeping in to force you to vaccinate and to prove with digital ID that you have vaccinated is just about established reality.

Gates’ development of digital tattoos to certify coronavirus immunity

The closest verification I can find for the idea that Bill Gates’ digital identification would come in the form of a digital tattoo or a chip implant is not specifically related to coronavirus, but it is solidly connected to proof of viral immunity. First, I found it encoded within this quote from Politifact:

“The researchers are exploring storing data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine. The technology is currently in the proof-of-concept phase,” the [Gates} foundation told PolitiFact in an email. “If successful, governments could elect to incorporate this kind of tool in their immunization programs in place of, or in addition to, their current methods of tracking vaccinations.”

While the tattoo places subcutaneous digital markets, it doesn’t have to be visible. I just has to provide your ID and proof of vaccination when scanned.

I also found this information from Rice University about vaccine tattoo research that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding. Apparently the vaccine will be part of the digital ID tattoo. The vaccine is injected in the pattern of something like an invisible bar code that carries markers that will show up electronically when scanned.

(More detail can be read about this research funded by Bill Gates at Scientific American.)

So, you want the vaccine, along with it comes the Digital ID, like it or not. You’ll just be told that’s the only the vaccine comes. Don’t want the vaccine but want to go to public events, you’ll be told sorry, “You have to have proof of vaccination to enter the stadium.”

That’s how that works.

Note that, in the videos above, Bill Gates is not just proposing digital ID for the US. He wants to see a global form of digital ID for a global problem. I’ve long said our next solution to a global economic crash will be a global cashless system, and this vaccination identification program uses fear of the coronavirus to get us there.

The “digital immunity certificates” are giant leap that may go immediately to simply digital identification, making them useful for financial transactions, computer password logins, security passes, and all electronic transactions as well. Why limit their identification functions to just proof of vaccination. A number is a number. The information it shares with other can be stored on the cloud and changed as needed.

A digital nano-signature in the tattoo would make it harder for people to counterfeit a strictly visual tattoo or an ID card for the purposes of being allowed into community events without having to get a vaccine. The same machine that scans your hand could simultaneously scan your fingerprints to make sure they match the record brought up by the tattoo ID number for nearly foolproof electronic security.

Many people don’t want the new vaccines Gates and others are developing because they involve genetic RNA technology never used in human beings, but many other people want to insist that anyone in public is vaccinated like they are. Viral fear gives the upper hand to the vaccination crowd, and if the tattoo is the only form of vaccination available … you do the the math.

Gates is a revelation of where society is headed

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

Revelation 13:16-18 New International Version

For Bill Gates the desire to have a tattoo people can feel assured you are virus cleared combines seamlessly with his statements long ago about creating a digital cashless society and with society’s desire now for touch-free financial transactions wherein you can just scan your tattoo (more on that in my next article).

Back in 2012, Digital Trends predicted, “By 2020, smartphones will replace cash and credit cards as the preferred payment method.

By 2020, most people will have embraced and fully adopted the use of smart-device swiping for purchases they make, nearly eliminating the need for cash or credit cards. People will come to trust and rely on personal hardware and software for handling monetary transactions over the Internet and in stores. Cash and credit cards will have mostly disappeared.

Well, it looks like coronavirus arrived just in time to make that 2020 delivery.

Further back — in 1999 — I wrote a book that said the same thing about smart phones replacing cash and credit cards and eventually about digital technology being implanted on your body as personal ID. It referenced Bill Gates as the driving force:

Globalization was the political buzz-word of the nineties, and it certainly fits the scenario described in one of the most famous passages of the Book of Revelation, which describes the times when the Antichrist will be revealed….

The ability of one individual [or institution or government] to have financial control over everyone almost has to imply a global economy. For forty years those old-time radio preachers have proclaimed that the requirement of a personal identification code including the number 666 for all financial transactions indicates a future cashless society. Now those who shape world finances and technology are publicly announcing the same thing.

End-Time Prophecies of the Bible

That was two decades ago, and that chapter of my book went on to quote Bill Gates from his book The Road Ahead:

Rather than holding paper currency, the new wallet will store unforgeable digital money…. Tomorrow the wallet PC will make it easy for anyone to spend and accept digital funds. Your wallet will link into a store’s computer to allow money to be transferred.

That technology did come about ten years later with smart phones, rather than an electronic wallet as Gates first envisioned (but it’s essentially he’s same thing, just has telephone technology, cameras, etc. included). Many people now routinely do such transactions via their phones. Note how what Gates went on to describe in his vision for the future fits perfectly with today’s desire for social distancing:

When wallet PCs are ubiquitous, we can eliminate the bottlenecks that now plague airport terminals, theaters, and other locations. As you pass through an airport gate, for example, you wallet PC will connect to the airport’s computers and verify that you have paid for a ticket…. Your wallet PC will identify you to the computer.

Now you walk by, and your phone can do that via bluetooth. Note the new vaccine ID, however, will also be able to identify you as someone who has been vaccinated — someone who poses no risk to other passengers or people at the crowded airport. Technology has moved along, under Bill Gates’ own development, to a mere scalable implant in the form of a tattoo that is something like a bar code.

Your phone can be locked to it; your car can be locked to it; your house can be locked to it; your computer can be locked to it; your bank account can be locked to it (in place of a debit card); your medical information can be locked to it and viewed by emergency personnel only in case you are unconscious; your police record can be locked to it. Ultimately security, viral immunity and ultimate convenience all in one invisible tattoo.

Bill Gates foresaw security concerns, even back when predicting the wallet PC that would require something more biometric like what he has now funded:

As cash and credit cards begin to disappear, criminals may target the wallet PC, so there will have to be safeguards…. Another option, which would eliminate the need for you to remember a password is use of biometric measurements … a physical trait, such as a voice print or a fingerprint.

Smart cards, the most basic form of the wallet PC, look like credit cards and are popular now in Europe. Their microprocessors are embedded within the plastic. The smart card of the future will identify its owner and store digital money.

Remember, the smart phone had not been invented yet. The smartest phone back then was the introductory Blackberry. At that point, I was a big step ahead of Bill Gates in seeing what would come. Why? Because I looked at the future the Bible pointed to and saw what it would take to get here, and now it is here … at least, in terms of the technology and the application of the technology, if not, yet, in terms of who controls the technology and how they will abuse it.

What better biometric ID than to have the “wallet PC” printed or injected right beneath your skin? That way there is no question the ID goes with the person, and you cannot lose it like a smart card or have it stolen because walking around with someone’s stolen hand to access their account looks highly suspicious.

At the time, Gates did not apparently see the tattoo coming, because all the technology necessary needed something less biological like the “wallet PC,” but those restraints existed before “the cloud.” Now, all the information can be kept on the cloud.

The digital ID doesn’t need to contain any information other than your ID number because all your financial data can be stored on the cloud as well as your health data — whatever part you want (or are required) to make publicly available upon the scanning of your biometric ID. Thus, the actual ID can be minuscule and simple.

At the time, the possibility of such global accessibility didn’t exist. There was no network of storage and high-speed wireless transmissions widespread enough to be almost ubiquitous as there now is.

Thus, I leaped ahead of Gates and followed up his own comments with my own:

The next logical question — since the chips can be embedded in small plastic cards — is why not embed the identification number under a person’s skin? That would make it difficult to steal and impossible to lose or forget. Such identification implants are already used on pets. Once the system became universal, people who refused to participate would, by default, be shut out.

For the consumer, such a system means total convenience. For banks, it means huge efficiency gains over paper transactions. For political leaders, it may mean perfect financial control and automatic, instantaneous tax transfers on every sale. For police it may mean financial trails to each individual’s whereabouts.

Of course, now under COVID-19, it means medical trails to the whereabouts of the vaccinated or unvaccinated as their info on the cloud gets updated to include whether they are vaccinated or not. (And that is what Bill Gates is saying we MUST make sure we have before we re-open society and move back away from social distancing in order for everyone to feel secure in large public gatherings.)

Gates went on to write,

The global information market will be huge and will combine all the various ways human goods, services, and ideas are exchanged. In short, just about everything will be done differently. I can hardly wait for this tomorrow, and I’m doing what I can to help make it happen….

Hmm, that almost makes one wonder if doing what he can includes infecting the world with a virus to get it over its apprehensions. While I don’t really think he would go so far as to kill hundreds of thousands of people to make that happen, the virus certainly gives him cause right now to leap in and do everything he can to help make the world he so intensely wanted happen today.

The information highway will extend the electronic marketplace and make it the ultimate go-between, the universal middleman…. [Computer] servers distributed worldwide will accept bids, resolve offers into completed transactions, control authentication and security and handle all other aspects of the marketplace…. It will be a shoppers heaven….

This idea will scare a lot of people … but, as with so many changes, I think once we get used to it, we’ll wonder how we did without it….

When the information highway makes geography less important, we will see electronic, on-line banks that have no branches — no bricks, no mortar … and transactions will be made through computer appliances.

How aptly that last line fits with the coronavirus shutdown foisted on us all now where many banks are closed, except by appointment, and do all transactions via their drive-up windows or online to avoid as much human contact as possible.

As for the idea scaring a lot of people, you know what they say about people overcoming their hatred of others if they find they have a mutual enemy to fight. It applies to their fear, too, if they have something greater to fear that they need to fight. The coronavirus is giving them something greater to fear … at least for all who perceive the epidemic that way.

The coronavirus is the great accelerator of the very global moves toward the cashless society the maestro of vaccinations said he would do all he could to bring about. His two greatest interests have fused at a microscopic intersection of cells and nanobytes.

My own conclusion twenty years ago about how a cashless society would come about

Gates referred to this as “friction-free capitalism.” I referred to it as “the electronic Tower of Babel. I also wrote,

The rapid increase in financial transactions over the internet is creating high demand for a single electronic currency that will work worldwide and a universal language of commerce. If human inertia and fear prevent a fully automated cashless economy at first, the next worldwide economic crash may provide the perfect impetus for implementing such globalization as part of the recovery.

Well, as it turns out, it required a worldwide economic crash plus a worldwide pandemic to overcome that inertia, but as my next article will lay out that inertia appears now to have been overcome for many by their viral fears and need to stop contagion that will keep re-emerging from other parts of the world if we don’t have a global answer.

As for the mysterious number 666, here’s an interesting piece of trivia: Almost every universal product code (UPC) on nearly every grocery item sold already has this number.

I described how every bar code has a pair of extended lines at the beginning of the first number in the product code, another between the first and second number and another after the second number. These bracket the numbers so the computer knows where each number begins and ends. I explained it this way:

In UPC language, one way to represent the number six is with two thin bars. Every grocery UPC has to extended thin bars at the beginning of the code, two extended thin bars in the middle of the code, and two extended thin bars at the end of the code. In that sense, every code has a six at the beginning, a six in the center, and a six at the end. These extended bars, called “guard bars,” are used by the computer scanner to bracket two sets of numbers that each code is composed of so the computer can lock onto the product code. While the computer does not read these extended lines for their numeric value, they appear like sixes would elsewhere in the code…. Maybe it is just a short matter of time until people scan the same way groceries do. So people, too, become a part of the electronic Tower of Babel.

Perhaps the fact that they look the same as as three sixes in each bar code but do not represent the same value as the number six, explains why the quotation from Revelation contained this riddle,

This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast….

In other words, it might not be quite as obvious as just seeing everyone run around with the number “666” tattooed on them. It would take a little wisdom to decipher the riddle. Why? If the prophecy were spelled out too much, it would be self-defeating. Who, today, would mandate people have a number that actually said “666” on everone’s hand, knowing the prophecy in the Book of Revelation would raise fear everywhere.

My answer may not be the right solution to the riddle, but the fit is extraordinary, for we are now apparently — if Bill Gates has anything to say about it — moving into just the kind of time I described twenty years ago, when a great financial crisis (accompanied, as it happens by a viral crisis) would move the entire world to a system of scanning people for their identification.

My next article will focus on examples of how the coronavirus is readying the global population to embrace digital ID that becomes part of your person (i.e., is implanted as a chip or an electronic tattoo beneath the skin) as we move toward becoming a cashless society. I will lay out several obvious ways in which fear of the virus is causing people to want what Bill Gates is saying must come.

However bad the idea, the time is ripe and ready for its global acceptance.

I continued as follows:

If human history is measured by the ticking of world events, then its chronometer must be buzzing, which may indicate that humanity as a whole is reaching its end…. The human world is shrinking. The rapid increase in travel and global communication within the last generation is greater than the increase in all previous generations combined…. The earth has shrunk into a village.

Nothing has made that more evident than the coronacrisis, where the rapid increase in travel carried the disease around the world in days and put the entire world into a quarantine as if it had shrunk into a single infected village and now is causing the maestro of vaccines to state we must all receive a digital immunization ID.

The coronavirus became the great accelerant that is overcoming people’s fears of Bill Gates and his viral vaccines and his technology.

I concluded my chapter about Gates’ press toward a digital, cashless society with the following statement about other elements of the times the Bible predicted 2,000 years ago:

The resurrection of the Jewish state, the anomalous surge of environmental disasters, the globalization of politics and economics, and the astronomical speed in human developments — all at the turn of a millennium — heighten the sense that the ultimate climax of human history may be close.

South Africans protest against coronavirus vaccine trials that exploit black lives – but will leftists care?

Sunday, July 05, 2020 by: Ethan Huff

(Natural News) The first human trials for a potential Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine are set to begin in Africa, and protesters in Johannesburg have taken to the streets in protest to declare that they will not be human guinea pigs for this latest Bill Gates depopulation scheme.

Roughly 50 people, mostly black, held up protest signs outside the University of the Witwatersrand (UW) where South Africa’s first clinical trials on a new Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine candidate are set to begin with the help of about 2,000 volunteers.

In partnership with the University of Oxford, UW claims that testing this new vaccine candidate on willing participants will help to ensure that a safe and inexpensive commercial vaccine is eventually made available to Africans. However, the protesters are not so sure.

“I’m not happy at all!” 29-year-old graphic designer Tebogo Legoale told news reporters, reflecting on his continent’s past involvement in testing potentially dangerous drugs on innocent people who do not fully understand the risks involved.

“I mean, this feels like the 1980s all over again when the AIDS pandemic just broke out in South Africa.”

Walter Mashilo, another 29-year-old who is known as a local activist, agrees. He says that he believes members of parliament and ministers’ children should be the first to receive this experimental vaccine, not poor people who are being tricked into potentially sacrificing their own lives.

“We are clear, comrades: we don’t want this vaccine,” Mashilo announced to the crowd standing before him, many of whom were seen carrying “We are not guinea pigs” signage.

The following episode of The Health Ranger Report, which you will not want to miss, discusses the prospect of door-to-door forced vaccinations once one of these experimental Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines is granted market approval:

Traditional healers want their medicines recognized as effective treatment, not new vaccines

With the highest reported infection rate in Africa, South Africa is ground zero for the potential launch of a new Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine, hence why at least one is being tested there. But even traditional healers are saying not so fast.

As is often the case, traditional healing protocols are once again being overlooked or ignored by government officials in Africa, even though they have been used for centuries to help people heal naturally from disease.

Many traditional healers are vocally opposed to the testing of this new vaccine for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) because they say their methods already work, and do not require the injection of potentially deadly chemicals into people’s bodies.

“We are not going to follow a vaccine because we as healers believe that our traditional medicine is not given a chance,” stated 32-year-old Sellwane Mokatsi, a compliance officer in South Africa who is also a member of the traditional healers’ organization.

Whether one agrees or disagrees with the prospect of using folk medicine to overcome the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), it remains an undeniable fact that innocent black lives are being exploited to rush a new vaccine to market. And the question remains: Do liberals even care?

“If black lives matter – and they do – someone had better straighten these people out,” wrote one commenter at The Globe and Mail who claims to have guest lectured at UW “during the end of Apartheid” when the school was “a beacon of racial tolerance and science-based decision-making.”

“I had great hope for Cyril but he could be presiding over the last democracy,” this same commenter added about South Africa’s current president, Cyril Ramaphosa. “What a sad commentary on South Africa and Wits University.” (Click to Source)

WHO Quietly Admits Chinese Communist Party Never Reported Coronavirus Outbreak

By KRISTINA WONG –
 

The World Health Organization (WHO) quietly updated a timeline this week to reflect that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) never reported its discovery of the coronavirus to the WHO and that the global health agency had to learn about it by itself, despite the WHO’s praise of Chinese transparency.

An old WHO timeline of the virus, published on its website, stated:

31 Dec 2019
Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, China, reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A novel coronavirus was eventually identified.

A note on the old timeline now states, “This statement is no longer maintained. An updated version was published on 29 June 2020.”

The updated WHO timeline reflects that WHO’s own office in China found open-source reports on the coronavirus and alerted the WHO’s Western Pacific Regional Office, and on January 1, WHO requested information from Chinese authorities. It states (emphasis added):

31 Dec 2019

WHO’s Country Office in the People’s Republic of China picked up a media statement by the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission from their website on cases of ‘viral pneumonia’ in Wuhan, People’s Republic of China.

The Country Office notified the International Health Regulations (IHR) focal point in the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office about the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission media statement of the cases and provided a translation of it.

WHO’s Epidemic Intelligence from Open Sources (EIOS) platform also picked up a media report on ProMED (a programme of the International Society for Infectious Diseases) about the same cluster of cases of “pneumonia of unknown cause”, in Wuhan.

Several health authorities from around the world contacted WHO seeking additional information.

1 January 2020

WHO requested information on the reported cluster of atypical pneumonia cases in Wuhan from the Chinese authorities.

WHO activated its Incident Management Support Team (IMST), as part of its emergency response framework, which ensures coordination of activities and response across the three levels of WHO (Headquarters, Regional, Country) for public health emergencies.

The update came after Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC) released an interim report on its investigation of China’s response after it discovered cases of the coronavirus in Wuhan.

The Republican investigation discovered that China never notified WHO about the coronavirus outbreak.

The investigation discovered that on December 31, 2019, Chinese media reports of the virus began to appear online, including on the U.S.-based platform for early intelligence about infectious disease outbreaks. The WHO’s executive director, Dr. Michael Ryan, admitted he found out about the coronavirus outbreak on the platform.

Instead of being transparent, the CCP began to cover up the outbreak by censoring references to the virus on the Internet and in messaging platforms.

The WHO’s update is significant because most western mainstream media news outlets have reported that China told the WHO about the outbreak, as implied by the WHO in its earlier timeline. The WHO never corrected those media reports.

Meanwhile, China has also quietly dropped its claims that it told the WHO about the virus.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian admitted on June 24, 2020, during a press conference, “On January 3, China started to send regular updates to the WHO as well as other countries and regions, including the US.”

HFAC Lead Republican and China Task Force chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) said in a statement:

I’m glad to see the WHO and the Chinese Communist Party have both read my interim report on the origins of the pandemic and are finally admitting to the world the truth – the CCP never reported the virus outbreak to the WHO in violation of WHO regulations. The question now is whether the CCP will continue their false propaganda campaign that continues to claim they warned the world, or whether they will come clean and begin to work with the world health community to get to the bottom of this deadly pandemic.

HFAC Republicans are continuing their investigation into China and the WHO’s handling of the virus, and plan to issue a full report later this year.

Democrats — who are trying to focus blame on President Trump for the coronavirus during an election year — did not take part in the investigation in fear this would deflect blame away from Trump. (Click to Source)

60 days after violent Pangong Tso clash, LAC remains tense

The two months saw hostilities grow between the two armies, aggressive posturing by both sides, multiple rounds of military and diplomatic-level negotiations yielding no breakthrough and tensions spreading to other sectors such as Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.

INDIA Updated: Jul 06, 2020 06:14 IST

Rahul Singh
Hindustan Times, New Delhi

Exactly two months after a violent face-off near Pangong Tso in eastern Ladakh brought the latest round of border tensions with China to the fore, the situation along the contested Line of Actual Control (LAC) remains tense and unpredictable with the standoff showing no signs of easing even five days after top military commanders agreed to work on an “expeditious, phased and step-wise de-escalation” of the ongoing conflict “on priority,” people familiar with the developments said on Sunday.

“Neither has anything changed on the ground nor is it expected to anytime soon. There has been no disengagement of troops at the friction points or de-escalation of conflict in the region,” one of the persons cited above said on condition of anonymity.

The two months saw hostilities grow between the two armies, aggressive posturing by both sides, multiple rounds of military and diplomatic-level negotiations yielding no breakthrough and tensions spreading to other sectors such as Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.

The disengagement of Indian and Chinese troops at face-off sites and the de-escalation of the conflict may make slow progress because of deep distrust and the continuing Chinese build-up that questions the People’s Liberation Army (PLA’s) intent, as reported by Hindustan Times on July 3.

It is becoming increasingly clear that both armies are likely to hold their positions in the region till the onset of winter (September), said a second person. (Click to Source)

Really Bizarre Things Are Happening All Over The Globe

 

Just when you think that 2020 has been filled with enough trouble, even more stuff starts happening.  Coming into this week, we were already dealing with a new COVID-19 surge which has pushed the number of daily cases to the highest levels we have seen so far, a global economy which is in the process of imploding all around us, massive civil unrest in U.S. cities from coast to coast, and giant swarms of locusts that are wiping out farms all the way from eastern Africa to parts of India.  Unfortunately, now we have several more items to add to our growing list.

Let’s start by talking about an alarming new outbreak of locusts.  The following comes from a British news source

Dramatic footage captures an “astonishing” swarm of locusts swarm through farmland and destroy crops.

The short-horned grasshoppers are capable of devouring the same amount of crops as 2,500 people would each day.

Some of you may have just read that paragraph and come to the conclusion that this is “old news”.

After all, we have been hearing about the colossal armies of locusts in Africa for months, and I have published numerous articles about that unprecedented plague.

But the news story that I just quoted wasn’t talking about those locusts.  Instead, that report was about a brand new infestation that has erupted in Argentina, and one local official is saying that he has never seen anything like it ever before.

Just like on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, these little critters are voraciously gobbling up everything in sight, and countless farms are being destroyed.

Now these swarms are heading for Brazil, and Brazilian officials are definitely extremely alarmed.  One of my readers in Brazil sent me an article about this emerging crisis from a Brazilian news source, and the following is a quote from that article which has been translated into English…

In approximately one square kilometer they can have up to 40 million insects, which in one day consume pastures equivalent to what 2,000 cows or 350,000 people eat, Argentine agronomist Héctor Medina told Reuters.

What would you do if 40 million locusts suddenly descended on your farm?

Of course the truth is that there would be very little that you could do that would make any sort of a difference.  Just like so many other farmers around the globe, you would simply watch as all of your hard work is completely wiped out.

Meanwhile, an absolutely gigantic plume of dust from Africa has crossed the Atlantic Ocean and is about to hit the United States.  The following comes from CBS News

A massive plume of dust from the Sahara desert in northern Africa has been traversing the atmosphere, thousands of feet above the tropical Atlantic Ocean, and is now cloaking the Caribbean and closing in on the southeastern United States.

Every once in a while a dust plume from Africa can cross the ocean like this, but the monstrous one that we are witnessing right now is truly unusual.

In fact, one expert says that this is “the most significant event in the past 50 years”

“This is the most significant event in the past 50 years. Conditions are dangerous in many Caribbean islands,” Pablo Méndez Lázaro, from the University of Puerto Rico’s School of Public Health, told the Associated Press.

As this plume travels across the U.S., air quality in some areas will drop precipitously.  Some of the dust has already arrived, but a “thicker layer” is projected to starting hitting Texas on Friday

On Wednesday, the dust is forecast to move across the Gulf of Mexico toward Texas.

Thursday morning, people in places like Brownsville in Texas and Houston will likely wake up to a beautiful sunrise and a hazier than normal sky.

Forecast models show the thicker concentration blanketing most of Central America and Mexico Thursday.

This thicker layer is likely to reach Texas by Friday and then take a turn to the east. If the forecast model is right, it will move over most of the Southeast and MidAtlantic states over the weekend.

On top of everything else, the west coast is starting to shake in a major way once again.  On Wednesday, southern California was struck by a magnitude 5.8 earthquake

California residents received an emergency alert on their phones which read: “Earthquake! Expect shaking. Drop, Cover, Hold On. Protect yourself now. – USGS ShakeAlert”. The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck 17km south-southeast of Lone Pine. The tremor originated at a depth of 2.9km, with an epicenter around 17 kilometers south-east of Lone Pine.

According to a USGS interactive shake map the impact of the earthquake could be felt in the Death Valley National Park.

The earthquake has since been downgraded to 5.8 magnitude.

That quake was followed by numerous sizable aftershocks, including one that was measured to be magnitude 4.6.

Overall, there have been 2,267 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last 7 days, and that is definitely alarming.

Farther south along “the Ring of Fire”, Mexico was hit by a magnitude 7.4 earthquake on Tuesday

A powerful earthquake struck Mexico’s southern Oaxaca region on Tuesday, killing at least five people and shaking buildings hundreds of miles away.

The 7.4-magnitude quake struck mid-morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its epicenter was off the Pacific coast about seven miles southwest of Santa María Zapotitlán, near the beach resort of Huatulco.

Very large seismic events are happening so frequently now that they barely make a blip on the news these days, and that is unfortunate because people need to wake up and understand that our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.

Here in the United States, scientists have been strongly warning us for years that we are way overdue for “the Big One” to hit California, and this is one of the things that I will be addressing in the new book that I am currently working on.

At some point there will be no more sand in the hourglass, and an unprecedented disaster will strike the west coast.  Let us pray that we still have quite a bit more time before that happens.

But nothing can stop the inexorable march of time, and the deeper we get into 2020 the crazier it gets.

Unfortunately, the truth is that this “perfect storm” is just getting started, and that means that what we have experienced up to this point is just the tip of the iceberg. (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – Matthew 6:34 – The Scriptures by Institute For Scripture Research – 2009 Edition – July 5, 2020

Matthew 6

1 “Beware of doing your kind deeds before men, in order to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in the heavens. 2 “Thus, when you do a kind deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do, in the congregations and in the streets, to be praised by men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. 3 “But when you do a kind deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your kind deed shall be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret shall Himself reward you openly.
5 “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the congregations and on the corners of the streets, to be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place. And your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly.
7 “And when praying, do not keep on babbling like the nations. For they think that they shall be heard for their many words. 8 “Therefore do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
9 “This, then, is the way you should pray: ‘Our Father who is in the heavens, let Your Name be set-apart,
10 let Your reign come, let Your desire be done on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into trial,(a) but deliver us from the wicked one – because Yours is the reign and the power and the esteem, forever. Amĕn.’ Footnote: a See Mat 26:41.
14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father shall also forgive you. 15 “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither shall your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 “And when you fast, do not be sad-faced like the hypocrites. For they disfigure their faces so that they appear to be fasting to men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17 “But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place. And your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly.
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. 22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, all your body shall be enlightened. 23 “But if your eye is evil,(b) all your body shall be darkened. If, then, the light that is within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! Footnote: b This is a Hebrew idiom – a good eye means to be generous, while an evil eye means to be stingy. 24 “No one is able to serve two masters, for either he shall hate the one and love the other, or else he shall cleave to the one and despise the other. You are not able to serve Elohim and mammon.(c) Footnote: c Personification of wealth.
25 “Because of this I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you shall eat or drink, or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than the food and the body more than the clothing? 26 “Look at the birds of the heaven, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father does feed them. Are you not worth more than they? 27 “And which of you by worrying is able to add one cubit to his life’s span? 28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Note well the lilies of the field, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin, 29 and I say to you that even Shelomoh in all his esteem was not dressed like one of these. 30 “But if Elohim so clothes the grass of the field, which exists today, and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more you, O you of little belief? 31 “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 “For all these the nations seek for. And your heavenly Father knows that you need all these.
but to seek God’s kingdom
33 “But seek first the reign of Elohim, and His righteousness, and all these shall be added to you. 34 “Do not, then, worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow shall have its own worries. Each day has enough evil of itself.

Bible History: What Happened To Nations That Turned From God?

by ROBERT DRISKELL

God is very clear in His Word that He deals with people, individually or as groups (cities, nations, etc.) according to how they honor, or refuse to honor, Him. The biblical record tells us that God pronounced judgment on quite a few cities and nations.

We are taught about God’s judgment in the first book of the Bible, Genesis.  The first judgment we see is the one pronounced on Adam and Eve, and the entire human race by virtue of our connection to them, when they chose to sin against God. 

The Flood

Later in Genesis, we read that God judged the entire human race living at that time, with a worldwide flood.  The reason for this judgment was once again due to humanity’s rebellion against God (Genesis 6:5). 

Sodom and Gomorrah

The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah have become synonymous with wickedness and evil.  These cities received God’s judgment for their wickedness also, “Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD” (Genesis 13:13 ESV). 

God judged Israel’s enemies

God repeatedly brought judgment against those who opposed His people, Israel.  The Bible tells us that God judged the Amalekites, the Moabites, the cities of Babylon and Sidon.  Exodus 34:11 tells us that God would drive many nations out of the land to make room for His chosen people, “…Amorites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites”. 

God’s judgment was fierce and final

God gave each of the people groups He judged plenty of opportunity to turn from their sinful ways and follow Him, therefore, when He finally executed judgment, it was a mighty display of His power.  When God pronounced judgment on Babylon it included some intense elements.  The Bibles says that their enemy’s, “…bows will slaughter the young men; they will have no mercy on the fruit of the womb; their eyes will not pity children.  And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the splendor and pomp of the Chaldeans, will be like Sodom and Gomorrah when God overthrew them.  It will never be inhabited or lived in for all generations; no Arab will pitch his tent there; no shepherds will make their flocks lie down there” (Isaiah 13:17-20 ESV).  Sin is incredibly grievous in God’s eyes and it must be punished.  These judgments are examples of God’s judgment of unrepentant sinners. 

Egypt

God’s judgment on Egypt was similar to that of  Babylon, with an added curse on the Egyptian land.  He dried up the waters of the sea and the rivers.  He made the canals foul and stinking.  The Nile was cursed to dry up and the reeds and rushes that grew there were cursed to rot away.  The land would stop growing produce and there would be no fish to be caught in what waters remained (Isaiah 19:5-9 ESV).

Israel

Even God’s chosen people were not exempt from His judgment if they rebelled against Him.  God instructed Moses to warn the people of the nation of Israel that He would rain down judgment on them if they were disobedient (Deuteronomy 29:24-26 ESV).  God warned His people that He would make an example out of them, to the rest of the world, if they turned from Him (2 Chronicles 7:19:22 ESV).  Jeremiah 18:9-10 tells us that God said that disobedience would bring God’s wrath, even on His chosen people.

However, God also reassured them that, as long as they were faithful to Him, He would forgive them and be their God, “If at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it” (Jeremiah 18:7-8 ESV).

God would rather people, and nations, turn to Him and be saved

God does not judge people and nations because He is some kind of ogre who likes inflicting pain.  The Bible tells us that it grieves His heart when people refuse His love, “Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live…”  (Ezekiel 33:11 ESV, see also Ezekiel 18:23, 32).

In the New Testament, we read that although God gives us the power of choice, He would rather we all choose Him, “…it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4 ESV, see 2 Peter 3:9).  The Bible also tells us that He has done everything it takes to provide a way for us to have our sins forgiven and to be reconciled to Him.

God’s promise to people and nations

The message of God’s offer of forgiveness is to be found all through the pages of the Bible.  One of the clearest Old Testament presentations is found in Second Chronicles, “…if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land”  (2 Chronicles 7:14 ESV).  We are given a choice.

Conclusion

God has given us warnings that He will judge sin.  He has given us examples of where He has judged sin.  However, He has also provided the way that we can be judged righteous and have eternal life.  Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins when He died on a cross for you and me.  Whether we face God’s judgment as so many of the people of the Old Testament did, or are forgiven of our sins and inherit eternal life, the choice is ours.  Will we choose to come to Jesus Christ and gain eternal life, or reject Him and be judged with eternal punishment (Matthew 25:46)?  We each must choose and now is the time to choose (2 Corinthians 6:2).

Houses of worship told to ‘discontinue singing’ under order from Newsom as pandemic worsens

 

Californians are still free to attend their house of worship. But they’re not supposed to sing or chant.

Citing the risk of spreading the coronavirus, updated COVID-19 guidelines issued Wednesday by the state Department of Public Health say “places of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities.”

In previously allowing religious organizations to reopen in late May, the state merely said these institutions should “strongly consider discontinuing singing, group recitation, and other practices and performances.”

Health agencies such as the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say shouting or singing can spread the coronavirus just as easily as coughing or sneezing.

California’s health department agrees, and as Gov. Gavin Newsom begins tightening protocols during a resurgence of the pandemic, it now says singing and chanting are outright banned.

“Activities such as singing and chanting negate the risk reduction achieved through six feet of physical distancing,” the state said in its new guidelines.

Houses of worship are now being told to have masks available for congregants who don’t bring one.

‘WE RECOGNIZE THAT SINGING IS A CHALLENGE’

The new guidelines were released the same day Newsom issued his most dramatic reversal yet on reopening the economy, calling on Sacramento and 18 other counties to halt indoor restaurant dining and close movie theaters, card rooms, indoor museums and other venues. Sacramento County’s closures took effect Thursday at 3 p.m.

Unlike the restaurant closures, Newsom said little about the new guidelines on houses of worship, mentioning them only in passing during a press conference Thursday.

It remains to be seen if, or how, the state or counties are expected to end singing in houses of worship. Churches were among the most aggressive institutions in pushing back on Newsom’s original stay-at-home order in mid-March. Several sued the governor to overturn the order, saying it violated their First Amendment rights, although none were successful in court.

One of the Sacramento area’s largest churches, Capital Christian Center, said it hasn’t reviewed the latest guidelines but will follow the new protocols.

“We recognize that singing is a challenge,” said Jason Batt, the church’s chief operating officer.

Batt said Capital Christian has put its choir activities on hold for the time being anyway and has limited singing to a few leaders of the services on stage.

Capital Christian, which can seat up to 4,000 congregants, has limited attendance to just 100 people – the maximum allowed by the state for indoor services. It’s continuing to encourage congregants to watch services online instead of showing up in person. (Click to Source)
