In 1991, David Rockefeller spoke of a globalists-media collusion to install a world government

Do you still doubt that there is a global élite who work covertly for a one-world government?

Recall that:

  • In 1988, in an essay in The Economist (which is partly owned by the Rothschild family), Lord Jacob Rothschild predicted a world government and the dissolution of national economic boundaries by 2018, when the world would be united under a single currency, the phoenix, administered by a global central bank.
  • In October 1999, the late CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite accepted the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award from the World Federalists Association at a ceremony at the United Nations. In his speech, Cronkite declared his support and allegiance to a one-world government, blamed the refusal of the U.S. Congress to ratify one-world-government treaties on the “religious right-wing”, and said “I’m glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan.”
  • In January 2009, former Nixon administration Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told CNBC that newly-elected Barack Obama’s “task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when really a New World Order can be created.”
  • In September 2011, at the Europian Parliament in Strasbourg, France, Gerard Batten, a member of the European Parliament for London for the UK Independence Party, asked why the mainstream media were so disinterested in the yearly meeting of world leaders in politics, finance and business — the Bilderberg Group. Batten said that the media’s curious disinterest “merely confirms the belief of many that the hidden agenda and purpose of the Bilderberg Group is to bring about undemocratic world government.”
  • In 2015, the United Nations issued a program for world government by 2030.

I recently found two other globalists’ statements on a world government.

In an article in the Summer 1991 edition of the SCP Journal, the late Brock Chisolm, the Director-General of the UN’s World Health Organization from 1948 to 1953, was quoted as saying that “To achieve One-World Government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, their loyalty to their traditions and national identification’.”

In June 1991 at the Bilderberg meeting in Baden, Germany, the late David Rockefeller, who was chairman and CEO of Chase Manhattan Corporation, answered the question that Gerard Batten would ask the European Parliament 20 years later about why the mainstream media simply refuse to report on the Bilderberg meetings. Rockefeller said:

We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.”

If that isn’t a conspiracy of globalists and the mainstream media, I don’t know what is. And yet, recently a friend actually called me an agent of Satan for reporting on conspiracies. Baa!

Magical Hummingbirds

Are you stressed out?

This video of hummingbirds will put a smile on your face and lower your blood pressure.

One hummingbird is so tame, it sits on a man’s head. Another is given a bath under the faucet!

(I suggest you lower the volume before you click on the video. I found the accompanying “music” quite annoying.)

Did you know that hummingbirds are native to the Americas?

I also didn’t know that hummingbirds have long lifespans for organisms with such rapid metabolisms.

Although many hummingbirds die during their first year of life, especially in the vulnerable period between hatching and fledging, those that survive may occasionally live a decade or more. Among the better-known North American species, the average lifespan is 3 to 5 years. The longest recorded lifespan of a hummingbird in the wild is a female broad-tailed hummingbird that lived for at least 12 years.

Here’s bonus video that I’d posted before, but I never get tired of watching it.

States with the highest & lowest property taxes

Property taxes are the single largest revenue source for local governments, used to fund fire and police departments, schools, and road maintenance, including snow removal, cleaning, and repair.

In 2015, the average U.S. property taxes per person was $1,518. Since property taxes are ratified, collected, and spent almost entirely at the municipal level, depending on where you live, property taxes can be either relatively low or a major financial burden.

Generally, property taxes are collected as a set share of the value of a home or parcel of land. Depending on local laws, home or property values are assessed periodically based on estimated sale prices, or by using the sale price when the property was last sold.

Using data from the Tax Foundation’s report, 2018 Facts & Figures: How Does Your State Compare?, 24/7 Wall St reviewed the 2015 effective property tax rate — the total amount of property taxes paid annually as a percentage of the total value of all occupied homes — for all 50 states, to derive the states with the highest and lowest property taxes. However, states with relatively low effective property tax rates do not necessarily have low tax revenue if real estate values in an area are high. That means that a state with a low effective property tax rate may actually have high per capita property taxes in dollar amount. The worst, of course, is a state with a high effective property tax rate and high per capita property taxes. And the worst of the worst is New Jersey, which has the highest effective property tax rate and the highest per capita property taxes.

The top 5 states in effective property tax rates are:

  1. New Jersey
  2. Illinois
  3. New Hampshire
  4. Wisconsin
  5. Vermont

The top 5 states in per capita property taxes are:

  1. New Jersey
  2. New Hampshire
  3. Connecticut
  4. New York
  5. Vermont

The 5 states with the lowest effective property tax rates are:

  1. Hawaii
  2. Alabama
  3. Louisiana
  4. West Virginia
  5. Wyoming

The 5 states with the lowest per capita property taxes are:

  1. Alabama
  2. Arkansas
  3. New Mexico
  4. Kentucky
  5. Delaware

2019 Darwin Award: Famous bikini hiker froze to death in mountain

We are only in January, but already there is a candidate for the 2019 Darwin Award.

The Darwin Awards are conferred posthumously on certain individuals for improving the human gene pool by accidentally removing themselves from it in a spectacular manner.

Gigi Wu, aka Wu Chi-yun, 36, was an exhibitionist who captured a legion of followers on social media as the “Bikini hiker” for hiking — and taking selfies — in the mountains of Taiwan wearing only a bikini.

Photo of Gigi Wu from Facebook

RT reports, January 21, 2019, that sadly, while hiking alone, scantily clad, in Taiwan’s Yushan National Park last week, Gigi Wu froze to death after falling  into a ravine.

On January 11, Wu set out on a solo hike. Last Saturday, after 8 days trekking, she made a distress call to a friend after falling more than 65 ft. into a ravine, unable to move from her injuries.

Commander Lin Cheng-I, of the Nantou County Fire Department, told reporters that Wu activated her distress beacon at an altitude of 5,577 ft. above sea level, where night-time temperatures reach 35ºF (2ºC), Liberty Times reports.

The Taiwanese National Airborne Service Corps quickly scrambled a rescue team to the national park in a desperate bid to help Wu, but the rescue effort was stymied by bad weather. On three occasions a rescue helicopter had to abandon the mission due to the adverse conditions, Taiwan News reports.

The local fire department then sent in two search and rescue parties on foot to search for Wu. 28 hours later, after a lengthy trek, Wu’s body was found at the location of her distress beacon.

Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey calls for killing innocent Covington boys by putting them into the woodchipper

Last Friday, January 18, 2019, a deceptively-edited video posted to social media ignited a media-driven public lynching of a group of teenage boys from the all-male Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky.

That day, the boys, wearing red Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats and sweatshirts, participated in the March for Life in Washington, DC. The video shows the boys surrounding, laughing and jeering at an elderly Native American man singing and playing a drum, who is identified as Nathan Phillips, an Omaha elder and Vietnam veteran.

Wiping away tears, Phillips said: “When I was there singing, I heard them [Covington boys] saying ‘Build that wall, build that wall’. This is indigenous lands. We’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did.” (WDBJ7.com)

The Covington boys were roundly denounced by media outlets and their hometown mayor. The Covington Catholic School, Diocese and Archdiocese issued abject apologies and condemnation of the students.

It turns out the full video of the incident shows an entirely different version of what happened.

Instead of the Covington boys harassing Phillips, it was Phillips and a group of fellow Native American activists who approached the boys who were doing school cheers. (The March for Life coincided with an Indigenous People’s Rally.)

As you can see in the video below, posted to YouTube on January 18, the day of the incident, Phillips tests several of the boys, then targets one of them (0:58 mark). Chanting, Phillips gets in the boy’s face with a metal drumstick and drum. Another Native American man tells one of the students, “White people go back to Europe. This is not your land.”

It gets worse.

One of the Covington students told the Gateway Pundit that they were waiting for their school bus and doing school cheers when four Black Israelites got belligerent with them: “We were standing there when a group of four African Americans started calling us ‘crackers’ and ‘school shooters'” and told one of the Covington students, who is black, that “we will harvest his organs” when he gets older.

The student’s narrative is confirmed by Marcus Frejo, one of the Native American protesters, who has admitted that he knew the blacks were harassing the Covington students when he and other Native American protesters joined their “African American brothers” “in solidarity.”

In a Facebook post about the incident, Frejo wrote that he was wandering around the area when:

“all of the sudden this mob of youth from the Covington catholic highschool make there onto the steps overlooking the African American brothers and start heckling them with loud maga chants and I quickly realize whats going on when the white bro next to me says their wearing maga hats and shirts. At that moment…I wanna go over there and stand in solidarity with the brothers and just sing.”

Although the full video of the incident was posted to Facebook on January 18, the truth didn’t stop Jack Morrissey, a Hollywood producer of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and two Twilight Saga movies that romanticize blood-sucking soul-less vampires, from calling for the murder of the Covington boys.

On January 19, 2019, referring to the Covington boys, Morrissey tweeted that “MAGAkids” should be killed by putting them, “screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.”

He has since locked his Twitter account so that his tweets can only be read by “confirmed followers,” but not before some netcitizen archived his tweet. Here’s a screenshot of Morrissey’s tweet:

It is not just Jack Morrissey who’s calling for violence against these innocent Covington boys.

Failed actor and ‘comedian’ Ben Hoffman, who goes by the stage name ‘Wheeler Walker Jr.,’ called for violent sexual crimes to be committed against the minor teens and even offered a reward to whoever can stalk and find the minor child and “punch him in the nuts.” (Gateway Pundit)

Yesterday, Rob Sanders, a Kentucky public prosecutor who represents the 16th Judicial Circuit of Kentucky (Kenton County), fired a warning at deranged leftists like Jack Morrissey and Ben Hoffman. He tweeted this:

Threatening acts of violence against educational institutions in Kentucky is a felony and we don’t take it lightly no matter the circumstances. #KYcrime

People of Walmart: The We-Can-See-Your-Underwear Edition

There’s a website called peopleofwalmart.com, to which readers can send — and get published — candid photos they’ve taken of odd-looking shoppers in various Wal-Marts across the U.S.

Periodically I go on the website to cull pictures for “People of Walmart” posts. I do them as a way to chronicle how Americans have lost our sense of self-respect and propriety. Too many of us don’t make even a minimum effort at pulling ourselves together before we go out of our homes, but instead parade our slovenly appearances for the world to see.

In today’s edition, we see Walmartians parading in or exposing their underwear.

Sunday Devotional: Gifts of the Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 12:4-11

Brothers and sisters:
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone.
To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit
is given for some benefit.
To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom;
to another, the expression of knowledge according to the
same Spirit;
to another, faith by the same Spirit;
to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit;
to another, mighty deeds;
to another, prophecy;
to another, discernment of spirits;
to another, varieties of tongues;
to another, interpretation of tongues.
But one and the same Spirit produces all of these,
distributing them individually to each person as he wishes.

Last Sunday’s Devotional was on the account in Luke 3 of the Baptism of our Lord. The significance of the narrative is twofold:

  1. Luke 3 is one of several instances in the Old and New Testaments  — see also Genesis 1:26, John 5:7, and Matthew 28 — when the nature of the Triune Godhead is revealed as the sublime mystery of three Persons in one God.
  2. Luke 3 also speaks to the importance that Jesus holds for the sacrament of Baptism: Even the Son of God, who needed no cleansing, before He began His public ministry. Indeed, the sacrament of Baptism is an act of exorcism — it purifies and sanctifies (makes holy) the person, making him/her a dwelling of the Holy Spirit. Put another way, an unbaptized person is without the Holy Spirit and rendered defenseless against the Evil One.

All of which brings us, quite logically, to today’s reading from St. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians.

With Baptism, not only are we made a dwelling of the Third Person of the Triune Godhead (how awesome is that!), we also receive spiritual gift(s) from the Holy Spirit!

To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit.”

The spiritual gift may be:

  • Wisdom: The capacity of judging rightly in matters relating to life and conduct; soundness of judgement in the choice of means and ends”; the opposite of folly.
  • Knowledge: The faculty of understanding or knowing; intelligence, intellect; clear and certain perception of fact or truth.
  • Faith: Belief in, trust in, and loyalty to God, the result of which should be a transformation — radical change — of the individual.
  • Healing: The restoration — making whole or well — of physical, psychological or spiritual health from a state of damage or disease.
  • Mighty deeds: Praiseworthy acts or feats that are great, powerful, or skillful.
  • Prophecy: The ability, with divine inspiration, to predict the future.
  • Discernment of spirits: The ability by intuition and/or theological study to judge various spiritual agencies — the human soul, Divine grace, angels, devils — for their moral influence. Humility is the key to discernment, as well as consulting others and praying for guidance.
  • Varieties of tongues: The supernatural ability to speak in a language unknown to the speaker; not to be confused with the acquired skill of speaking in a foreign language.
  • Interpretation of tongues: The supernatural enablement to express in an intelligible language an utterance spoken in an unknown language; not to be confused with the acquired skill of language interpretation.

Which spiritual gift were you given?

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

A cross appears on the floor of the U.S. Capitol Rotunda

Chad Pergram is an award-winning reporter who covers Congress for Fox News.

On January 16, 2019, Pergram tweeted this picture of the floor of the U.S. Capitol Rotunda with the cryptic text: “A cross is now visible on the center circle on the floor of the US Capitol Rotunda”.

Pergram has not responded to readers’ queries as to whether the cross had always been there or if it’s a new phenomenon, but a reader (@Knuffle_Bunny) of his tweet responded with a picture of the Capitol Rotunda’s floor before/without the cross:

Another reader () tweeted a picture of a star in the middle of the floor, claiming that it’s of the Capitol Rotunda. But she’s mistaken: the floor with a star in the middle is in the Capitol building’s Crypt — a large circular area on the first floor of the building — not the Rotunda, which is a large, domed, circular room on the second floor of the Capitol building.

I have searched in vain for photos of the Capitol Rotunda’s floor, including a 360° virtual tour of the Rotunda, but did not find any picture showing the center of the Rotunda floor with or without a cross.

If anyone reading this can supply us with pictures, please leave a comment!

Update (Jan. 20, 2019):

A reader of FOTM, Mary, found this pic of the Rotunda floor, taken before Chad Pergram’s January 16 tweet:

I cropped and enlarged the center of the floor. I do not see a cross in the white circle, do you?

Mueller: Buzzfeed report that Trump told Cohen to lie to Congress is bunk

The hyenas in the Hate America MSM were beside themselves with glee when a Buzzfeed story published Thursday, January 17, cited two unnamed federal law enforcement officials claiming that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen told Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office that in 2017, Trump had instructed him (Cohen) to lie to Congress about a now-abandoned real estate deal to build a Trump Tower in Russia.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani immediately refuted the Buzzfeed story as false: “Any suggestion – from any source – that the president counseled Michael Cohen to lie is categorically false. Michael Cohen is a convicted criminal and a liar. Today’s claims are just more made-up lies born of Michael Cohen’s malice and desperation, in an effort to reduce his sentence.”

A day later, on Friday, January 18, the Buzzfeed story is refuted by none other than Mueller’s office. Mueller’s spokesman Peter Carr said: “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate.”

FoxNews notes that Carr’s statement “is remarkable in that Mueller’s team rarely issues statements in response to news stories. But BuzzFeed’s story sparked immense interest from Democrats, who called for renewed investigations and even suggested the allegations could be a basis for impeachment proceedings.”

Responding to the statement from Mueller’s office, Buzzfeed‘s Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith, 42, tweeted that “We stand by our reporting and the sources who informed it”.

For his part, President Trump, in a tweet yesterday, reminds us that it was none other than Buzzfeed that first published the bogus “golden shower” Russian dossier:

Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited “Dossier,” paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based! A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!
