In America today, privately-owned businesses are no longer motivated by profit and service. Instead, businesses have become an arm of the Democrat Party by discriminating against conservatives and promoting the Left’s agenda — of abortion, climate change, gun control, illegal “immigration”, LGBTs, etc.
On August 19, 2019, Business Roundtable — a group of 181 chief executive officers (CEOs) from major U.S. corporations — formalized this de facto trend by issuing a statement redefining the “purpose of a corporation”. The signatories include:
CNBC‘s Maggie Fitzgerald reports that gone is the age-old notion that corporations function first and formest to serve their shareholders and maximize profits. Rather, “investing in employees, delivering value to customers, dealing ethically with suppliers and supporting outside communities are now at the forefront of American business goals.”
Business Roundtable chairman Jamie Dimon piously said in a press release: “The American dream is alive, but fraying. Major employers are investing in their workers and communities because they know it is the only way to be successful over the long term. These modernized principles reflect the business community’s unwavering commitment to continue to push for an economy that serves all Americans.”
Here is Business Roundtable’s Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation:
Americans deserve an economy that allows each person to succeed through hard work and creativity and to lead a life of meaning and dignity. We believe the free-market system is the best means of generating good jobs, a strong and sustainable economy, innovation, a healthy environment and economic opportunity for all.
Businesses play a vital role in the economy by creating jobs, fostering innovation and providing essential goods and services. Businesses make and sell consumer products; manufacture equipment and vehicles; support the national defense; grow and produce food; provide health care; generate and deliver energy; and offer financial, communications and other services that underpin economic growth.
While each of our individual companies serves its own corporate purpose, we share a fundamental commitment to all of our stakeholders. We commit to:
Delivering value to our customers. We will further the tradition of American companies leading the way in meeting or exceeding customer expectations.
Investing in our employees. This starts with compensating them fairly and providing important benefits. It also includes supporting them through training and education that help develop new skills for a rapidly changing world. We foster diversity and inclusion, dignity and respect.
Dealing fairly and ethically with our suppliers. We are dedicated to serving as good partners to the other companies, large and small, that help us meet our missions.
Supporting the communities in which we work. We respect the people in our communities and protect the environment by embracing sustainable practices across our businesses.
Generating long-term value for shareholders, who provide the capital that allows companies to invest, grow and innovate. We are committed to transparency and effective engagement with shareholders.
Each of our stakeholders is essential. We commit to deliver value to all of them, for the future success of our companies, our communities and our country.
As we have seen in the policies and practices of Chase Bank, Bank of America, and countless others, the new objectives that now drive these corporations — those of “investing in employees” and “supporting outside communities” — mean, in practice, support for the Left’s agenda, as well as discriminatory policies against conservatives and Christians.

Piers Morgan, 54, is an English journalist, broadcaster and TV personality.
I was no fan of Morgan. He was especially loathsome when he hosted Piers Morgan Live on CNN from 2011 to 2014, after which he returned to the UK.
On the Ben Shapiro Show last Sunday, August 18, 2019, Morgan launched into a stinging critique of the contemporary Left which had gone viral on Twitter, which just goes to show even a self-identified, pro-gun control liberal like Piers Morgan has had enough with so-called “liberals”.
Morgan said (beginning at the 8:26 mark):
“I think a lot of people who should be impartial journalists and masquerade as impartial journalists are now drifting toward being celebrities. And right now in America, in Trump’s America, the only way to be a celebrated journalist is predominantly to be a liberal, Trump-hating journalist, and that’s where it gets dangerous.
When I look at CNN for example, when I was there, the standards and practices around impartiality were extremely, extremely rigorously enforced. You could not remotely be seen to…partial politically. Now I look at CNN, I just see open sneering at Trump 24/7…. Things have changed: when I was there, you couldn’t do that, and I think that’s problematic. America needs CNN to be impartial. You know you have MSNBC on the left, you have Fox on the right, people have always understood that. If CNN itself becomes partial and partisan, I find that a big problem.
I find it a problem some of their reporters want to be big stars. You know anchors, they’re gonna be stars because they’re anchoring. When you’re a White House reporter or correspondent, you really should be doing the late-night chat shows? I don’t think so. So I think that there’s a line there which is getting crossed more and more, which I think is a problem for American people and their ability to cut through all this and get to the truth….
I have never known it like it is now, and I think it’s being massively exacerbated by social media…. It feels like we’ve gone back 2,000 years and we’re back into tribes. You have it with Trump here in America where it’s just blind. You have to be in one tribe or the other. You’re not allowed actually to say well, on the one hand he’s done good things here, here, here, on the other hand I don’t like what he’s doing here. It’s everything about this man, everything he does and says, every time he breaks wind, it offends me. Or I love him and everything he does is fantastic even when Trump does something ridiculous….
The most important thing is to maintain the ability to have a democratic debate with people, and to sit with people that you fundamentally don’t agree with, and to listen to things you find fundamentally offensive, but you actually respect someone’s right to think differently to you….
It’s the inability to have a debate without wanting to cancel people, to wrech their lives, to make them lose their jobs…. [Referring to universities in the UK and Berkeley, CA de-platforming speakers, i.e., not allowing invited speakers to speak] What is the point of being at university if you’re not going there to be challenged and to have your own views challenged….
(41:40) The self-righteousness of people that lose elections or referendums [referring to the Brexit referendum] … they say ‘No, you’re too stupid, no. Actually we have to do this all over again, we should ignore the result of this election because I know more than you, I’m more intelligent than you, you’re stupid people. That’s where we’ve got to, and if that is accepted, where every result is simply declared null and void and Liberals, let’s be honest, get what they want, democracy dies….”
Shapiro then asks Morgan if Brexit and President Trump are part of generalized phenomenon of populism in other countries in Europe as well, e.g., Italy, of a resistance to a “generalized elite” — “sneering…people who want to control your life from top down”. Morgan said [42:31 mark]:
“Populism is rising because Liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a Liberal, okay. In my core, I’m probably more liberal than not although fundamentally I see myself as a journalist and I’d like to see both sides of all this and I can argue both. But Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal, and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point in calling yourself a Liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know this snowflake culture that we operate in, the victimhood culture, the ‘everybody has to think a certain way, behave a certain way, everyone has to have a bleeding heart and tell you 20 things that are wrong with them’. I just think it’s all completely skewed to an environment where everyone’s offended by everything, and no one’s allowed to say a joke….
So … suddenly where are we? The Liberals get what they want, which is a humorless void where nothing happens, where no one dare do anything or laugh about anything or behave in any way that doesn’t suit their rigid way of leading a life. No, thanks.
So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture, they’re fed up with snowflake [inaudible], they’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything, and they’re gravitating to forceful personalities…. I don’t agree with all of it, but I understand why the Liberals, my side if you like, are getting it so horribly wrong. They just want to tell people not just how to lead their lives, but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to. It’s a kind of version of fascism: You don’t live the life the way I’m telling you to, then I’m gonna ruin your life. I’m gonna scream abuse at you, I’m gonna get you fired from your job, I’m gonna get you hounded by your family and friends. I’m gonna make you the most disgusting human in the world, because he said a joke ten years ago.
That’s the attitude we’re operating in. It takes forceful personalities to rise above it. Donald Trump rose up and went like Godzilla: ‘Okay, you want to fight? I’m here!’ And guess what, millions of people in Middle America went, ‘That’s our guy! That’s our guy, he’s the one that’s gonna help us.’ Same thing happening across Europe.”
And how will the Left react to Morgan’s critique? To quote two commenters on YouTube:
CNN’s headline on Monday reads: “Alt-Right Piers Morgan Sits Down with White Supremacist Ben Shapiro and Attacks American Journalism in Hate Fueled Tirade.”

The hypocrisy of so-called environmentalist elites is limitless.
In January 2019, international financial and political elites took some 1,500 fuel-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jets to Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum on climate change being the greatest threat to the global economy. Davos, a small town in the Swiss Alps, is an easy taxi ride from a host of commercial airports.
The hypocrites did it again, for the just concluded 3-day Google Summer Camp on climate changeat the posh, 5-star Verdura Resort on the Sicilian coast in Sciacca, Italy, where rooms start at $903 a night.
Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin invited to the top-secret gathering, costing some $20 million, a who’s who of A-list names, including (Page Six; Forbes):
Prince Harry, of the devil’s horns hand-sign, who flew to the Google Hypocrite Summer Camp in private jet and helicopter, sanctimoniously declared he and Meghan Markle will have at most two kids because of “his concerns for the planet and the ‘terrifying’ effects of climate change” — a not-so-subtle jab at his brother, Prince William, who has three children and may have plans to have a fourth. Prince Harry has an estimated net worth of $40 million.
Graeme Hart, billionaire businessman and the richest person in New Zealand
The hypocrites arrived by private jets and yachts.
Among the yachts moored off the beach at Verdura Resort were Diller and Von Furstenberg’s $70 million EOS, Geffen’s $400 million super-yacht Rising Sun, Hart’s $275 million super-yacht Ulysees, Google co-founder Eric Schmidt’s $150 million super-yacht Infinityand its support vessel Intrepid, and Vetter’s Aquarius.
According to Italian press reports, the attendees arrived in 114 private jets.
Page Six reports that the New York Post “crunched the numbers and found that 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, Italy, where guests landed, would spew an estimated 100,000 kilograms [220.46 lbs.] of CO2 into the air.”
Other attendees of the Google Hypocrite Summer Camp on climate change are (Daily Mail):
Hollyweirdo actors Orlando Bloom, George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Lars Ulrich; talent manager Guy Oseary.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank
Super-model Naomi Campbell
Pop singers Bono, Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra, John Legend, Chris Martin, Harry Styles.

Bohemian Grove is a 2,700-acre campground in Monte Rio in northern California, belonging to the Bohemian Club — a private San Francisco-based men’s club. In mid-July each year, Bohemian Grove hosts a more than two-week encampment of some of the most prominent men in the world, including U.S. presidents and politicians. Only active members of the Club and their guests may visit the Grove.
President Richard Nixon said in his private presidential tapes:
“The Bohemian Grove that I attend from time to time . . . is the most faggy goddamn thing you could ever imagine . . . it’s just terrible.”
Sleeping quarters or “camps” are scattered throughout the grove, of which it is reported there were a total of 118 as of 2007. These camps, which are frequently patrilineal, are the principal means through which high-level business and political contacts and friendships are formed. (Wikipedia)
It is said that Mandalay camp is the camp “for international relations and consists of more than a few members offically or otherwise connected to foreign policy and the CIA. Mandalay is the only camp the average visitor cannot just walk into; an appointment or formal invitation is necessary.”
The names of Bohemian Grove attendees are not made public.
In July 2008, Wikileakspublished the 2008 Bohemian Grove Guest List. Now, thanks to Crazy Days and Nights (CDAN), we have an updated list for 2018.
Crazy Days and Nights‘ blogger, Ent Lawyer (Ent=Entertainment), has a track record of accuracy. The Daily Beast describes Ent Lawyer as:
“. . . calling out many of Hollywood’s now-ostracized sexually misbehaving elite, sometimes years in advance of the mainstream media.
‘If you had been reading @entylawyer, you’d have known about Matt Lauer. And Harvey [Weinstein]. And Kevin Spacey. Just saying,’ tweeted New York professional Sara Zucker. Or as investigative journalist Mark Ebner (one of only 20 people who knows the blogger’s real-life identity) observes, ‘Enty Lawyer is like the anti-Perez Hilton. In my opinion, that’s what makes him so impressive, is that no one knows who he is, and he’s being proven right again and again. That’s like legendary shit.’”
On July 21, 2019, CDAN published a composite list of 2,925 Bohemian Grove attendees in 2008 and 2018. CDAN obtained the names of the 2018 attendees from photos sent by an unnamed source. The composite list is not a complete list of 2018 attendees. Ent Lawyer notes that “Some names are missing, and some were illegible because of the photos taken.”
Below is a screenshot of page one of the 60-page list on CDAN:
You can also see the list in text format, here (h/t codyave).
Below are the names of attendees I recognize. Note that some individuals are deceased, which means they attended the 2008 Bohemian Grove. Names with a red check mark (√) stayed at the exclusive Mandalay camp:
But what are we to do when the source of those obnoxious canards about Jews — that Jews are anti-Christ and anti-Christians; control the media and Hollywood; are racists and regard non-Jews as inferior; are anti-nationalist open-borders globalists — are Jews themselves? Some examples:
This post is about two prominent Jews who said really terrible things about Jews which, if uttered by non-Jews, instantly would be condemned as “anti-Semitic” and worse.
(1) Douglas Rushkoff
Douglas Rushkoff, 58, is a professor of media theory and digital economics at the City University of New York, and a media theorist, writer, columnist, lecturer, graphic novelist, and documentarian. The author of 10 books on media, technology and culture, including Nothing Sacred: The Truth About Judaism, Rushkoff is also a columnist for The New York Times, The Guardian, Discover, Daily Beast, and other media outlets.
In a video recently uploaded to 153news.net by Harold Saive, which must have been taken some years ago as Rushkoff looked much younger than he is today, Rushkoff is interviewed on camera, saying:
“The thing that makes Judaism dangerous to everybody — to every race, to every nation, to every idea — is that we smash things that aren’t truth. We don’t believe in the boundaries of nation-states. We don’t believe in the ideas of these individual gods that, you know, protect individual groups of people. These are all artificial constructions that Judaism really teaches us how to see that. In a sense, our detractors have us right, in that we are a corrosive force. We are breaking down the false gods of all nations and all peoples, because they’re not real! And that’s very upsetting to people.”
(2) Harold Rosenthal
Harold Wallace Rosenthal (1947-1976) was a graduate of Cambridge University and Harvard University. He worked for Congressman Hugh Carey (D-NY) and Senator Walter Mondale (D-MN) where he directed the senator’s legislative agenda. After a stint at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rosenthal returned to Capitol Hill as a senior aide to Senator Jacob K. Javits (R-NY). Rosenthal was one of four people murdered in a terrorist attack in Istanbul, Turkey, on August 11, 1976.
In 1978, a pamphlet entitled The Hidden Tyranny was published, which included an interview conducted in 1976 by Walter White with Harold Rosenthal, 29, in which Rosenthal said that the god of Jews is Lucifer, and that Jews are implementing a Protocols of the Elders of Zion style plan to take over the world.
The pamphlet is denounced by both the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and by white supremacists. The ADL called the pamphlet “a fabricated document”, while Tom Metzger wrote on the White Aryan Resistance website that the interview with Rosenthal is “bogus”, “never took place,” and that “Walter White operated free and loose on some subjects, like this one.” (Wikipedia)
White recorded his interview with Rosenthal, but the recording was never made public, as agreed upon when the interview was first arranged. What we have is White’s transcription of the interview, Part One of which he made public in 1977. In 1983, White released Part Two. You can read the transcription on the website, Educate-Yourself, or listen to it as an audiobook, which is available on YouTube (below) and in MP3 format on Archive.org.
Below are some of the things Rosenthal said in the interview (source: Educate-Yourself). Make of it what you will, although it must be pointed out that Douglas Rushkoff’s words echo what Rosenthal allegedly said:
“It is a marvel that the American people do not rise up and drive every Jew out of this country…. We Jews continue to be amazed with the ease by which Christian Americans have fallen into our hands. While the naive Americans wait for Khrushchev to bury them, we have taught them to submit to our every command.”
“Americans have not had a presidential choice since 1932 when [Franklin] Roosevelt was our man; every president since Roosevelt has been our man.”
“Jews are the most intelligent people in the world so if it benefits them to change their names they do so. That’s all there is to it. They mix in your society which is plenty corrupt — so while the Jews are benefiting themselves the dumb goy doesn’t realize that these Jews with non-Jew names are Jews. I know what you’re thinking — about Jews in the government who use non-Jew names. Well, don’t be concerned because in the foreseeable future there will be no Presidential power in the United States. The invisible government is taking strength in that direction.”
“We Jews have put issue upon issue to the American people. Then we promote both sides of the issue as confusion reigns. With their eyes fixed on the issues, they fail to see who is behind every scene. We Jews toy with the American public as a cat toys with a mouse.”
“The United Nations is nothing but a trap-door to the Red World’s immense concentration camp. We pretty much control the U.N.”
“The blood of the masses will flow as we wait for our day of world victory.”
When asked how a nation could be captured without their knowing it, Rosenthal attributed this victory to absolute control of the media. He boasted of Jewish control of all the media. Any newspaper which refused to acquiesce to controlled news was brought to its knees by withdrawing advertising.
“Anti-Semitism does not signify opposition to Semitism. There is no such thing. It is an expression we Jews use effectively as a smear word — used to brand as a bigot like you guys — anyone who brings criticism against Jews. We use it against hate-mongers.”
About Jesus Christ:
“During Christ’s time, the Jews were seeking a material and earthly kingdom, but Christ offered the Jews a spiritual kingdom. This, they couldn’t buy, so they rejected Jesus Christ and had him crucified…. That’s all he was — a man who walked on the earth like any other man and this myth about Christ rising from the dead and returning to earth to visit with his disciples is a bunch of crap…. You see, instead of a leader who would make an empire for the Jews, your kind of people gave the Jews a peaceful preacher called Christ who instead of an eye-for-an-eye turns the other cheek. Rubbish! We are building and, in fact, have built an earthly empire without your kind and your disappointing Messiah.”
Jews have a pseudo-religion:
“At a very early date, urged on by the desire to make our way in the world, Jews began to look for a means whereby we might distract all attention from the racial aspect. What could be more effective, and at the same time more above suspicion, than to borrow and utilize the idea of a religious community? We’ve been forced to borrow this idea from the Aryans. We Jews never possessed any religious institution which developed out of our own consciousness, for we lack any kind of idealism. This means that a belief in life beyond this terrestrial existence is foreign to us. As a matter of fact, the Talmud does not lay down principles with which to prepare the individual for a life to come, but furnishes only rules for a sumptuous life in this world.It is a collection of instructions for maintaining the Jewish race and regulating intercourses between us and the goy. Our teachings are not concerned with moral problems, but rather with how to ‘get’….
Our life is of this world only and our mentality is as foreign to the true spirits of Christianity as our character was to the Founder of this new creed 2,000 years ago. The Founder of Christianity made no secret of his estimation of the Jews and the fact that he was not one of us. When he found it necessary he drove us out of the temple of God, because then, as always, we used religion as a means of advancing our commercial interest.
But at that time, we managed to nail Jesus to the cross for his attitude towards us; whereas, the modern Christians enter into party politics and in order to win elections, they debase themselves by begging for Jewish votes. They even enter into political intrigues with us against the interests or their own nation.
We can live among other nations and states only as long as we succeed in persuading them that the Jews are not a distinct people, but are the representatives of a religious faith who, therefore, constitute a ‘religious community,’ though this be of a peculiar character. As a matter of fact, this is the greatest of our falsehoods.
We are obliged to conceal our own particular character and mode of life so that we will be allowed to continue our existence as a parasite among the nations. Our success in this line has gone so far that many believe that the Jews among them are genuine Frenchmen, or Englishmen, or Italians, or Germans who just happen to belong to a religious denomination which is different from that prevailing in these countries…. Therefore, there is never the slightest suspicion that we Jews form a distinct nation and are not merely the adherents of a ‘confession.’ Though one glance at the press which we control ought to furnish sufficient evidence to the contrary, even for those who possess only the smallest degree of intelligence.”
The duping of Christians and co-opting of Christian churches:
“With our control of the text book industry and the news media, we have been able to hold ourselves up as the authorities on religion. Many of our rabbis now hold professorships in supposed Christian theological seminaries. We are amazed by the Christians’ stupidity in receiving our teachings and propagating them as their own…. Through our propaganda the Church has become our most avid supporter. This has even given us a special place in society, their believing the lie that we are the ‘chosen people’ and they, gentiles.
“These deluded children of the Church defend us to the point of destroying their own culture…. [A]ll wars have been white fighting white in order that we maintain our control. We controlled England during the Revolutionary War, the North during the Civil War, and England and America. Through our influence of religion we were able to involve the ignorant white Christians in war against themselves which always impoverished both sides while we reaped a financial and political harvest. Anytime truth comes forth which exposes us, we simply rally our forces — the ignorant Christians. They attack the crusaders even if they are members of their own families.”
Racial equality and democracy as tools of manipulation:
“Through religion we have gained complete control of society, government and economics. No law is ever passed except its merits have previously been taught from the pulpits. An example of this is race equality which led to integration and ultimately to mongrelization. The gullible clergy in one breath instruct their parishioners that we are a special, chosen people while in another breath proclaim all races are the same. Their inconsistency is never discovered. So we Jews enjoy a special place in society while all other races are reduced to racial equality. It is for this reason that we authored the equality hoax, thereby reducing all to a lower level….
Politically, they hail the blessings of democracy and never understand that through democracy we have gained control of their nation…. [D]emocracy is mob rule which we control through their Churches, our news media and economic institutions. Their religion is only another channel through which we can direct the power of our propaganda. These religious puppets’ stupidity is only exceeded by their cowardice, for they are ruled easily.”
“On the first and fundamental lie, the purpose of which is to make people believe that we are not a nation but a religion, other lies are subsequently based. Our greatest fear is that this falsehood will be discovered, for we will be stamped out the moment the general public comes into possession of the truth and acts upon it.”
Who/what Jews are:
“Since we do not believe in a life after death, all our efforts are directed to the ‘now.’We are not as foolish as you and will never adopt an ideology that is rooted in self-sacrifice. Whereas you will live and die for the benefit of the community, we will live and die only for our own individual self. The idea of self- sacrifice is abhorred by Jews. It is abhorrent to me. No cause is worth dying for since death is the end. The only time we unite is to preserve our individual selves. As a group of wolves unite to attack a prey, but then disperse after each is filled, so we Jews unite when peril is pending, not to preserve our community but to save our own skin.
“This attitude permeates our entire being and philosophy. We are not the creators for to create would only benefit another…. We are the ‘acquirers’ and are interested only in satisfying the ‘self’…. We never give but only take. We never labor but enjoy the fruits of others’ labor. We do not create but confiscate. We are not the producers but the parasites. We can physically live within any society, but always remain spiritually apart. To work would be to produce and the highest form of that labor would be to create. Your race has always worked for the satisfaction of what it produces. We would never work for anyone’s benefit, only for what we can get. We have used this Aryan attitude to achieve our greatest prosperity. You will work for the enjoyment you derive out of producing, while never being concerned about the pay. We take your productivity for a paltry fee and turn it into fortunes.”
“We are the most powerful international body of people in the world!…. We can destroy any country’s economy without their even being aware of it—if we want to…. We’re smart—we are powerful and at the proper time we will mix up your gentile women with the Blacks and in 50 years you’ll be all mixed up. Niggers love to s—w your white women and we encourage it by using them to our advantage…. You and I know they’re inferior people, a dumb race, but can be useful with the use of money. I mean real big money. Niggers will do anything for money. So, when the time comes—and you might even live to see it—we will have that complete control while you stupid Christians are waiting for your Christ, the impostor, to return as your savior.“
The god of Jews:
“We ARE God’s chosen people…. You and we actually have a different God…. To our god we are chosen ones. We are taught that from our childhood.”
Walter White wrote the following comments in 1983:
Dear reader—after the tape machine had been turned off, I accused Harold Rosenthal of not living up to our agreement in replying truthfully to my question as to the Jews being God’s Chosen people. He replied:
“We are god’s chosen people . . . Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer—so I wasn’t lying—and we are his chosen people. Lucifer is very much alive.”

Here in the United States, some privately-owned businesses — including banks — are doing that. Below are examples of politicized businesses that are actively against the Second Amendment and discriminate against gun-owners:
Chase Bank is going after conservatives and Trump supporters by closing their accounts.
Chase Bank is one of the Big Four banks in the United States, with more than 5,100 branches and 16,000 ATMs. (The other three big banks are Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo.) Known as Chase Manhattan Bank until 2000 when it merged with multinational banking and financial services holding company J.P. Morgan & Co. Headquartered in Manhattan, NYC, Chase Bank is the consumer and commercial banking subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
On February 26, 2019, I reported on Chase Bank denying service to four conservatives & Trump supporters: Joe Biggs, Laura Loomer, Martina Markova, and Enrique Tarrio. This post is a follow-up on the case of Enrique Tarrio, a Cuban-black who is the chairman of a fraternal organization called Proud Boys, slimed by Wikipedia as “a far-right neo-fascist organization that admits only men as members and promotes political violence.”
As reported by Big Leaque Politics, Tarrio received a letter from Chase Bank, dated February 4, 2019, that “After careful consideration, we have determined that we can no longer support your banking account(s) and will be closing it on April 01, 2019.” The letter came days after Chase Bank’s payment processor, Chase Paymentech, de-platformed Tarrio on 1776.shop — a website he runs that allows groups and charities to sell merchandise and raise money for causes. The website is most known for selling the “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong” shirts which Stone was wearing during the late-night arrest at his home.
Tarrio says that before Chase terminated his account, he had asked the bank why, but phone operators for Chase were unable to explain why his business account was being terminated.
Two days ago, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released an undercover video of conversations with Chase Bank professionals discussing the closure of Tarrio’s account.
As described by Project Veritas, “Multiple Chase account and bank managers were unable to assist Tarrio, saying that inquiries regarding the closure of his business account would have to be directed to the ‘executive office.’” Chase banker Marcel Smith said the bank typically gives its customers a reason for account closures: “I see nothing that indicates any reason why the account should be closed, I don’t see any outstanding transactions or anything ridiculous. I’ve never seen them not give a response to someone whose account they had closed.”
An analyst from the Chase executive office, Nora, told Tarrio that his account was being closed for various clerical issues. But Tarrio, in a phone conversation with Nora which was published by Project Veritas, made clear there were no “clerical issues”.
But a Project Veritas (PV) undercover audio of a conversation with a Chase Corporate Global Media Relations employee reveals that Chase Bank does make political judgments about their customers:
PV JOURNALIST: I don’t want to do business with anyone who does business with Steve Bannon, or any of these alt right people, and that’s just one of my prerequisites.
CHASE: Right, right. As far as I’m concerned, we’re not connected with Steve Bannon.
JOURNALIST: Do you have standards in place that would preempt such relationship with anyone, um of Steve Bannon’s.–
CHASE: Oh definitely. Definitely, definitely.
JOURNALIST: That’s what I’m calling to inquire about. Tell me more.
CHASE: Right so I mean, Chase is not involved with any like, you know, alt right people or anything. I really can’t name names but it’s basically like we don’t get involved with any of that…
JOURNALIST: … I don’t expect for you guys, I’m not talking about who you guys give money to –
CHASE: No, just any business relationships, period.
JOURNALIST: Really? Okay… So I mean on my end I’m talking about people like Trump supporters for instance. The MAGA, whatever – make, whatever the hell they, those types of people, I mean individuals.
CHASE: Right, right. I know what you mean, but like I said the call is being recorded, monitored, so I can’t get too political. And say I don’t support these people, or this, but you know, any kind of business entity, people like that, no moral character or anything like that, the bank usually doesn’t get involved with that.
After Project Veritas released the undercover audio, Chase Bank issued a denial:
“We do not close accounts due to political affiliation. Despite what was described in the video, that was NOT someone from Global Corporate Media Relations.”
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe observes:
“Are there unwritten Chase policies that Mr. Tarrio and others were in breach of? ‘Debanking’ appears to be a new frontier in American politics.”

I find the strangest things while roaming the Internet.
Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, which introduced the character of Count Dracula of Transylvania and established many conventions of subsequent vampire fantasy.
Stoker’s notes for Dracula show that the name of the count was originally “Count Wampyr”, but Stoker became intrigued by the name “Dracula” after reading William Wilkinson’s book An Account of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia with Political Observations Relative to Them (London 1820). The name Dracula was the patronym (Drăculea) of the descendants of Vlad II of Wallachia, who took the name “Dracul” after being invested in the Order of the Dragon in 1431.
Dracula means “son of the devil” in Romanian.
Some historians believe that a historic figure, Transylvanian-born Vlad III Dracula, aka Vlad the Impaler, was the model for Stoker’s Count Dracula. The second son of Vlad Dracul, Vlad the Impaler massacred more than 100,000 Turkish warriors in battle. The vampire legend is said to have been inspired by his cruelty, brutality, and predilection for eating bread dipped in his victim’s blood.
The (UK) Telegraph reports, November 5, 2012, that Transylvania, synonymous with the legend of the vampire, should also be known as the ancestral home of the Prince of Wales, according to the Romanian National Tourist Office. Links between the British Royal Family and Vlad the Impaler are being exploited in an attempt to lure tourists to the eastern European country.
The Prince has made no secret of his love for Romania and is believed to travel there frequently. In 2006, he purchased a farmhouse in Viscri, a village in rural Transylvania, which is available as a guest house at certain times of the year.
Prince Charles himself appears in a video being used to promote the country in which he claims distant kinship with Vlad Tepes, the 15th–century Wallachian ruler on whom the Irish novelist Bram Stoker based his Dracula.
Prince Charles jokes in an interview first shown on satellite television in 2011: “Transylvania is in my blood. The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler, so I do have a bit of a stake in the country.” The video climaxes with a reference to the Prince of Wales, “who can trace his ancestry back to Romania’s dark and distant past”.
According to Royal Highness, a book published in 1982 by Sir Iain Moncreiffe, Prince Charles is a great grandson 16 times removed to Vlad the Impaler, his lineage traced back through his great grandmother Queen Mary, the consort of George V, to Vlad IV, the half brother of the notorious ruler.
It has been claimed that porphyria, an iron deficiency which is thought to lie behind the vampire myth, has run in the British Royal Family. One of the symptoms of cutaneous porphyria is sensitivity to sunlight — of burning and severe pain in skin exposed to sunlight.
Here’s the family tree:
Dracul is Romanian for the dragon — a serpent used in the Bible as a symbol of the Devil.
Maybe there really is something to conspiracy theorist David Icke’s notion of a reptilian ruling elite after all. LOL. (Note: Australia recently banned Icke from entering the country for his multi-city speaking tour.)
Last September, I reported on the new phenomenon of élite vampirism, wherein perfectly healthy but wealthy people get very expensive transfusions of blood plasma from young people for their alleged rejuvenating, life-extension effects.
Those wealthy elites get their blood transfusions from for-profit companies, such as Ambrosia Health, reportedly the first for-profit company selling transfusions of human plasma, allegedly harvested from young adults from local blood banks, under the guise of running a clinical trial. It takes multiple donors to make one package of blood plasma. The transfusions cost $8,000 for 1 liter, pumped in across two days; for 2 liters, the company charges $12,000.
PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel is one of these “elite vampires” who, according to Gawker, spends $40,000 every 3 months on blood transfusions from 18-year-olds.
Since the company’s beginning in 2017 in Monterey, California, Ambrosia had opened another branch in Houston, Texas. Run by Jesse Karmazin, a medical school graduate in his 30s without a license to practice medicine, the company’s so-called “clinical trials” are overseen by a licensed doctor, David Wright, who was disciplined in 2015 by the California Medical Board for giving his patients intravenous treatments of vitamins and antibiotics for “non traditional” purposes. A bioethicist from McGill University maintained that Ambrosia calls its business a “clinical trial” because they would be unable to get FDA approval to sell the blood plasma transfusions otherwise.
Now, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has finally weighed in.
Yesterday, the FDA issued an announcement cautioning consumers against receiving young blood-plasma transfusions. As a result, Ambrosia put a notice on its website that “In compliance with the FDA announcement issued February 19, 2019, we have ceased patient treatments.”
Below is the press announcement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D., and Director of FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research Peter Marks, M.D. and Ph.D., February 19, 2019:
The FDA has recently become aware of reports of establishments in several states that are offering infusions of plasma from young donors to purportedly treat the effects of a variety of conditions. The conditions range from normal aging and memory loss to serious diseases like dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease or post-traumatic stress disorder. We have significant public health concerns about the promotion and use of plasma for these purposes. There is no proven clinical benefit of infusion of plasma from young donors to cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent these conditions, and there are risks associated with the use of any plasma product.
Today, we’re alerting consumers and health care providers that treatments using plasma from young donors have not gone through the rigorous testing that the FDA normally requires in order to confirm the therapeutic benefit of a product and to ensure its safety. As a result, the reported uses of these products should not be assumed to be safe or effective. We strongly discourage consumers from pursing this therapy outside of clinical trials under appropriate institutional review board and regulatory oversight.
Plasma is the liquid portion of the blood. It contains proteins that help clot blood and can be used for the management of bleeding and clotting abnormalities. The benefits of plasma have long been recognized, especially in trauma settings or in patients whose blood is unable to clot due to medications or certain illnesses. The FDA-recognized Circular of Information for the Use of Human Blood and Blood Components, published by AABB, lists recognized indications for which the administration of plasma is safe and effective; these are included in the FDA’s safety communication. For those patients receiving a plasma product for a recognized use, the benefits of treatment have been determined by the agency to outweigh its risks. But even under such recognized uses, plasma administration is not without risks. The more common risks are allergic reactionsand transfusion associated circulatory overload and less common risks include transfusion related acute lung injury or transfusion associated circulatory overload and infectious disease transmission.
Our concerns regarding treatments using plasma from young donors are heightened by the fact that there is no compelling clinical evidence on its efficacy, nor is there information on appropriate dosing for treatment of the conditions for which these products are being advertised. Plasma is not FDA-recognized or approved to treat conditions such as normal aging or memory loss, or other diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. Moreover, reports we’re seeing indicate that the dosing of these infusions can involve administration of large volumes of plasma that can be associated with significant risks including infectious, allergic, respiratory and cardiovascular risks, among others.
The administration of plasma for indications other than those recognized or approved by the FDA should be performed by a qualified investigator or sponsor who has an active Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the FDA. Clinical studies are performed under an IND to help ensure the safety of participants in the trials. When clinical trials are not conducted under an IND, it means that the FDA has not reviewed the experimental therapy to help make sure it is reasonably safe.
Simply put, we’re concerned that some patients are being preyed upon by unscrupulous actors touting treatments of plasma from young donors as cures and remedies. Such treatments have no proven clinical benefits for the uses for which these clinics are advertising them and are potentially harmful. There are reports of bad actors charging thousands of dollars for infusions that are unproven and not guided by evidence from adequate and well-controlled trials. The promotion of plasma for these unproven purposes could also discourage patients suffering from serious or intractable illnesses from receiving safe and effective treatments that may be available to them. We strongly urge individuals to consult their treating physicians prior to considering the use of such products for aging indications or for the treatment of conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease or post-traumatic stress disorder given the known and unknown risks associated with their use.
We support sound, scientific research and regulation of medical treatments. We will use our tools and authorities to protect patients from unscrupulous actors and unsafe products. As a general matter, we will consider taking regulatory and enforcement actions against companies that abuse the trust of patients and endanger their health with uncontrolled manufacturing conditions or by promoting so-called ‘treatments’ that haven’t been proven safe or effective for any use.
As a growing number of clinics offer plasma from young donors and similar therapies, we want to encourage consumers considering treatments to ask their health care providers to confirm that the FDA has reviewed any treatment that is investigational. You also can ask the clinical investigator to give you the FDA-issued IND number and to provide a copy of the FDA communication acknowledging the IND. We encourage patients to ask for this information before receiving treatment. Furthermore, we urge patients and their health care providers to report any adverse events related to treatment with plasma from young donors for aging or related indications to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program. The agency will continue to closely monitor this issue and take additional steps, as appropriate, along with state and local health departments and blood establishments.
Do you still doubt that there is a global élite who work covertly for a one-world government?
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 Kissingertold 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.”
Rockefeller thanked the MSM for their “discretion” in concealing, for “almost forty years,” the globalists’ plan for a world government. That means the plan was initiated around 1951, during the presidency of Harry Truman.
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!
