If you have not seen this video before, I encourage you to watch it. It is a short video with a moving message. If you have already seen this video, I encourage you to watch it again. It is not by "chance" that the person in this video being spoken about has come to the foreground in these End of Days but he has been chosen for such an hour that we are all in now. Pray for President Trump to be given wisdom, discernment, and the right knowledge on what he is being advised on. Some of those around him are feeding him false information and they need to be exposed and put away.

The Excellent Spirit | Lance Rewind
Do you know what a lot of Biblical figures such as Esther, Nehemiah, Daniel, and Joseph all have in common? I want to talk about the supernatural quality of what makes a leader in terms of the kind that God is raising up now. I'm convinced right now in the global community we have problems that we can't solve until the people who have supernatural abilities step on the scene!
We need believers who have an excellent spirit who can operate in all the different spheres of influence.
SEALED COURT DOC NAMES 70 PEOPLE WHO ‘KNEW OF SEX TRAFFICKING AND UNDERAGE VICTIMS’ BY JEFFREY EPSTEIN
Includes powerful names like Prince Andrew, George Mitchell, Glen Dubin, Jean-Luc Brunel, Les Wexner
Jamie White | Infowars.com - MAY 4, 2020
A court filing by one of financier Jeffrey Epstein’s underage victims identifies as potential witnesses over 70 men and women alleged to have knowledge of the billionaire pedophile’s sex trafficking of underage girls.
Virginia Roberts, one of Epstein’s most well-known accusers, claimed powerful men like Prince Andrew, former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, and former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell (D-ME) were among those who “had knowledge of Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual trafficking conduct and interaction with underage minors,” according to documents obtained by The Sun Monday.
The sealed documents reportedly list 70 well-connected individuals Roberts wants deposed in court as witnesses to Epstein’s illicit activities.
Though the documents are believed to be unsealed soon, The Sun has released only about half of the names listed in the court filing, noting that all of the individuals listed have explicitly denied having any knowledge of Epstein’s abuses against young girls.
Some of the names mentioned, such as Prince Andrew, have previously been reported to have ties to Epstein through flight logs to his private island getaway nicknamed “Orgy Island”.

App will generate “personal risk scores” and determine the need “for quarantine and decontamination.”
Steve Watson | Infowars.com - MAY 5, 2020
Three US universities are responding to the coronavirus crisis by creating (irony of all ironies) a Chinese style social credit surveillance system that will ‘score’ people based on their exposure to the virus.
According to a report from Tech site dot.LA, researchers at the University of Southern California, Emory University, and the University of Texas Health Science Center are jointly working on the system after receiving federal grant funding.
Like the Chinese social credit system, the scheme will consist of a mobile app for contact tracing the virus, and promises to track the real-time location and symptoms of individuals to calculate “personal risk scores”.
The score would be used to determine the need “for quarantine and decontamination,” according to the report, with “aggregate risk scores” also assigned to “locations like your neighborhood grocery store.”
The universities hope to have a working mobile app by August, in time for the start of the fall semester.
Welcome to the new normal. Surely the fallout of this system will all be positive.
When the coronavirus vaccine eventually comes along the system will presumably be updated to show who has had it and who hasn’t.
High social credit points for those who have taken it, no travel privileges for those who refuse!

Alert Investing Legend Predict A Second Great Depression For Stock Market By 2023
As we well know through our journey on this channel, many economists and experts have been alerting for an incoming stock market crash in Great Depression style to be set to happen over the course of the next few years, and now - enhanced and speed up by the global sanitary emergency - the situation gets even deeper layers.
There are many perspectives on how this economic collapse will unroll, what its consequences will probably be, and what could be done to lower its impacts. Although, most solutions ever mentioned were preventive and not correctional, so they require a quick responsive action before it is too late.
That's what trader and expert, Kiril Sokoloff, has been defending over the past four decades and there are countless reasons why we all should be listening to what he has been saying. Founder and chairmen at 13D Global Strategy and Research, and author of the acclaimed weekly newsletter "What I Learned This Week", Sokoloff was interviewed a couple of days ago by Rana Foroohar on the notorious "Lunch with the Financial Times", where we can find his curious background and realize how he became one of the most respected strategists on Wall Street, being mentioned as a highly insightful and independent thinker, that leans towards a fiscally conservative, rational, and well-calculated philosophy - that's why he has big clients such as Sam Zell, Mukesh Ambani, and Raymond Kwok, paying thousands of dollars for a subscription.
Based on the US Virgin Islands and unaffiliated with any bank, Sokoloff has been attempting to prove the financial elite wrong, by explaining the threats of solving economic issues regarding debt with even further debt-creation. As FT asserts that this topic is "timelier than ever, given that central-bank balance sheets — already huge before the health crisis — are headed into the stratosphere, as policymakers struggle to cope with the crisis, not to mention the popping of a debt bubble that grew for years before it", as we can observe on this graphic of the Federal Reserve Balance Sheet.
Before the interview, Foroohar told she had been reading a well-recommended guide book, 1932's "A Bubble That Broke the World" written by Depression-era journalist Garet Garrett, that Sokoloff had suggested to be a "primer for our age", since it covers up a detailed explanation on how "central-bank actions contributed to the debt-driven run-up to the stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression." Moreover, the expert had also sent a chart that compares the Dow Jones between 1918 and 1932 to the present times, which shows that the climbs and the drops are distressingly similar to the period from 2009 onwards. If are there lessons we can learn from history, stock's deterioration before hitting rock-bottom is one of them. And that's what Sokoloff maintains, explaining that now just as back then “central bankers were pushing on a string”, uselessly aiming to promote an economic recovery with monetary policies.
Even though the author is traditionally known for having an optimistic panoramics of the economic scenery, his latest outlook on the situation could be shared by many other sources that foresees an apocalyptic future of the economic collapse. As he declares that "the more debt you add - via monetary and even some fiscal policy -, the more unproductive the debt becomes.”

Tough Times Ahead - 85 Million Unemployed Americans
Why The Deep State Is Forcing a RESET
Did the Elite plan the current pandemic? If they did, they are getting many unplanned consequences. Families are being strengthened. Nationalism is returning to countries that once were set on globalism. Nations are seeking to return manufacturing to their own borders. Could there be a coming conflict between the Luciferian Elite and the other power and wealth groups on the planet? Could we have just witnessed a resetting of purpose for the “chosen ones” of the Black Awakening? It is time to awaken and move in Kingdom power!

Dear gatekeepers of truth and free speech, before removing this video, please read these words:
The world is watching you. We understand the pressure you’re under to censor any information that contradicts the popular narrative. We know the risk that comes with defying the orders of those who pull the strings. We realize even the biggest of tech giants are under the command of powerful forces that wield the ability to destroy your empire with the click of a key. But due to the critical condition of our world, “I was just doing my job” is no longer an acceptable excuse.
This is no time to play politics. Our future is your future. Your family’s future. Your children’s future. Your grandchildren’s future. This is a plea to the human in you. Preventing this information from reaching the people is taking a firm stance on the wrong side of history. A choice you will certainly live to regret as truth exponentially emerges. There is nothing, no billionaire, no politician, no media, no level of censorship that can slow this awakening. It is here. It is happening. Who’s side are you on?
And to the citizens of this magnificent planet...
If anything is clear at this moment, it is the fact that no one is coming to save us. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Though great forces have worked long and hard to divide us, our resilience, strength, and intelligence has been gravely underestimated. Now is the time to put all our differences aside.

About The Film
Humanity is imprisoned by a killer pandemic. People are being arrested for surfing in the ocean and meditating in nature. Nations are collapsing. Hungry citizens are rioting for food. The media has generated so much confusion and fear that people are begging for salvation in a syringe. Billionaire patent owners are pushing for globally mandated vaccines. Anyone who refuses to be injected with experimental poisons will be prohibited from travel, education and work. No, this is not a synopsis for a new horror movie. This is our current reality.
Let’s back up to address how we got here...
In the early 1900s, America’s first Billionaire, John D. Rockefeller bought a German pharmaceutical company that would later assist Hitler to implement his eugenics-based vision by manufacturing chemicals and poisons for war. Rockefeller wanted to eliminate the competitors of Western medicine, so he submitted a report to Congress declaring that there were too many doctors and medical schools in America, and that all natural healing modalities were unscientific quackery. Rockefeller called for the standardization of medical education, whereby only his organization be allowed to grant medical school licenses in the US. And so began the practice of immune suppressive, synthetic and toxic drugs. Once people had become dependent on this new system and the addictive drugs it provided, the system switched to a paid program, creating lifelong customers for the Rockefellers. Currently, medical error is the third leading cause of death in the US. Rockefeller’s secret weapon to success was the strategy known as, “problem-reaction-solution.” Create a problem, escalate fear, then offer a pre-planned solution. Sound familiar?
Flash forward to 2020...
They named it COVID19. Our leaders of world health predicted millions would die. The National Guard was deployed. Makeshift hospitals were erected to care for a massive overflow of patients. Mass graves were dug. Terrifying news reports had people everywhere seeking shelter to avoid contact. The plan was unfolding with diabolical precision, but the masters of the Pandemic underestimated one thing... the people. Medical professionals and every-day citizens are sharing critical information online. The overlords of big tech have ordered all dissenting voices to be silenced and banned, but they are too late. The slumbering masses are awake and aware that something is not right. Quarantine has provided the missing element: time. Suddenly, our overworked citizenry has ample time to research and investigate for themselves. Once you see, you can’t unsee.
The window of opportunity is open like never before. For the first time in human history, we have the world’s attention. Plandemic will expose the scientific and political elite who run the scam that is our global health system, while laying out a new plan; a plan that allows all of humanity to reconnect with healing forces of nature. 2020 is the code for perfect vision. It is also the year that will go down in history as the moment we finally opened our eyes.

The names of some of the largest GOP critics of President Donald Trump are surfacing in the investigation of a politician indicted this week on charges of fraud, human smuggling, selling children, forgery, conspiracy and ripping off the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System.
Maricopa County Assessor Paul Petersen has been indicted in Arizona, Utah and Arkansas on state and federal charges that he is running an illegal adoption ring.
In all, he’s facing 62 criminal charges involving dozens of pregnant woman brought in from the Marshall Islands to supply babies to Petersen’s clients and millions to his bank account.
“Make no mistake, this case is the purest form of human trafficking,” the U.S. Attorney for western Arkansas, Duane “Dak” Kees, said Wednesday at a press conference in Springdale Ark. where he announced the federal indictments.
But what IS NOT public, until now, is Petersen’s curious association with GOP critics of President Trump, including former US Sen. Jeff Flake, late Sen. John McCain, and Sen. Mitt Romney among others. Petersen also campaigned for and is friends with Arizona Gov. Goug Ducey and other politicians, according to records and sources.
Petersen’s association with Flake, who recently resigned from the Senate, is perhaps most curious. Petersen’s alleged schemes involved securing pregnant women from the Marshall Islands. Flake is somewhat famous for his much-hyped personal trips to the Marshall Islands. Flake has trekked to the Marshall Islands at least four times, including once to film a reality survival show while he was in the Senate.
Petersen’s reference in 2013 to being invited on a Marshall Island trip WITH Flake is something that promises to peak the interest of state and federal investigators.
American Unemployment Rates Are Setting Records and THEY ARE NOT THE RECORDS AMERICA WANTS TO SET!!!!!!
America is now beseiged with 30.5 million Americans out of work and the number is growing exponentially every day!
HISTORIC LOWS IN THE OVERALL EMPLOYMENT RATE ONLY 90 DAYS AFTER TRUMP SET RECORDS FOR EMPLOYMENT AMONG ALL GROUPS!!!
America has been conquered not by a virus, but by the Bolsheviks who inhabit the councils of government. Despotic Democrats and abject traitors, like Republican Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey who epitomizes this Bolshevik Revolution against America! This Maoist actually threatened Arizona business owners with jail if they dared to exercise their constitutional rights if they opened without the King's permission. The lockdowns which went way beyond reason with regard to the spread of any virus, including CV-19, were designed to destroy the small business backbone of America. How do you know the small businesses were targeted? That is an easy question to answer.
In Arizona, for example, the billionaire-controlled box stores operated with impunity with little deference to social distancing. Meanwhile, the box store's small business competition was illegally and unconstitutionally shut down. After intense pressure from local media, who has lost their advertising revenue and the independent media, Ducey called an impromptu press conference on the afternoon of May 4th, at the request of his handlers, and appeared to backdown. However, he did not backdown. Gyms are closed and restaurants still cannot open for a week, why? Small business retail outlet stores are handicapped with restrictive regulations that Ducey says they must follow, but his pet box stores are left alone. The Equal Protection Amendment to the Consitution is dead in Arizona under King Ducey. Even with Ducey getting his backside handed to him, he is still attacking small businesses! Why? The answer to that question is simple. Small business is the backbone of capitalist, free-enterprise America and is subsequently the dire enemy of every communist dressed in Bolshevik clothing, like Ducey, like Whitmer, like Newsom et al. And all the American dictators collectively said "Amen". By the way, this is the closest that this group of Bolsheviks will ever get to Jesus. In fact, we very much need Jesus to walk through the monied temples, like Walmart, with a whip and kick some communist backside like he did 2,000 years ago! Would you buy a ticket and attend that modern-day reckoning?
At his press conference, spurred by intense citizen pressure and where two Arizona sheriffs announced that they would not enforce Ducey's communist edicts, Ducey was looking good. He was very well groomed! With all barber shops in Arizona shut down, how did King Ducey maintain his spiffy appearance? Simple! It's a case of rules for thee, but not for me!!! Even though King Ducey appeared to have signed Arizona's version of the Magna Carta, under duress, yesterday, it was only a strategic retreat. Small businesses are still operating on an unlevel playing field. So much for the 14th Amendment. Oh, by the way, Ducey revealed the inner workings of his soul yesterday, the churches are still closed. Please remember, the Bolsheviks do, and always have hated Jesus!
Am I being a bit too harsh? Please consider the fact that the American economy and the foundation of our country, the Constitution, have been destroyed in 60 days! With millions of American lives lying in ruins, I ask you, am I being too harsh?
The Lab Coat Coup
Fauci, Birx and Gates are in control of America. Big Pharma, under the guise of emergency powers constained in USC 42, are running the government. It has been well-documented the extreme financial conflicts of interest exist within the COVID-19 team and all of them are beholding to the Gates AND the Clinton Foundations. Everyone in this team should be fired and prosecuted for these conflicts of interest, but it is just another day at the Bolshevik farm.
The government is now the epitome of what President Eisenhower spoke about in his farewell address, in that we have lost control of our government to corporate interests who are no longer interested in supporting a Constitutional Republic. Many of our leaders have embraced a Bolshevik world view and they have no compunction in supporting its demise in the hope of currying favor with the globalists in the hope of getting a seat at the table of power in what follows the fall of the American empire and subsequent republic form of government.
Armed with unsafe vaccines, stethoscopes and rectal thermometers the lab coat coup has conquered America where previous armies could not accomplish the feat. All heil the unproven and almighty mandatory vaccines that are coming to your neighborhood.
New Zealand Journalist, Trevor Loudon, documented, through his documentary entitled The Enemies Within) how the Communist Party of the USA itself had adopted a stealth plan to achieve revolutionary goals by decisions made in the 1970s to infiltrate and manipulate the Democratic Party.
“The Communist infiltration plan is to form alliances with the radical elements in organized labor in conjunction with radicals in the African-American community and the feminist movement to establish a progressive coalition on the left that could dominate the national political agenda for decades to come.” John Lewis was a member of the Progressive Caucus which is a front group for the Communist Party. Lewis is not alone, but his actions and allegiances speak to his lack of commitment to the Republic and most importantly, the Constitution of The United States.
According to Enemies Within, there are over 80 Congressman and Senators who identify and are members of front groups for the Communist Party and/or the Muslim Brotherhood, the largest terrorist organization on the face of the Earth. Former Congressional representatives West and McKinney agree.
A case in point, (former Presidential Candidate) Elizabeth Warren, is the Trojan Horse of the Middle Class. She and Senator Kamala Harris are Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers. I am not talking Muslims or the religion of Islam, I am referring to the most senior terrorist group in the world, the Muslim Brotherhood. These 2 belong to their front organizations for the Muslim Brotherhood. Trevor Louden has fully exposed this in his new documentary, The Enemies Within. Over 80 Democrats in Congress fit this MO. And now you know why they had a tantrum when Trump is pausing immmigration in order to screen immigrants who come from a part of the world that rightfullly hates America and could be inrected with COVID-19.
America, now that you know that you have been conquered, isn't time that we put millions of you in the streets today? Isn't time we remove nearly every incubment from power and intitate term limits? Isn't time that we outlawed corporate donations to elected officials? Isn't time you did something? Otherwise, roll up your sleeve, wait for the alcohol rub and take your chances!
Beijing now on “high alert” for possible coronavirus outbreak – close monitoring of infected individuals under way
Despite authorities having reported positive developments in the country’s number of COVID-19 infections, tensions are running high in the Chinese capital of Beijing, as citizens ready themselves for another wave of coronavirus outbreaks.
A new report by the Epoch Times revealed that this development came after Beijing declared the business district of Chaoyang a “high-risk region” on April 19 following a recent infection involving a family in the area.
This status, however, has since been downgraded to “low-risk,” Xu Hejian, a spokesperson for the Beijing municipal government, said Wednesday, adding that there is no increase in COVID-19 cases in the Chinese capital, whether confirmed, suspected or asymptomatic.
Restrictions still exist despite downgrade
Xu also mentioned that while Beijing has downgraded its level of emergency response to the coronavirus from first to the second tier, temperature checks and social distancing efforts will still be enforced within the city and its districts.
Authorities have also reopened 80 of the city’s tourist attractions, including the Forbidden City. The city’s attractions were ordered to close in January due to the outbreak. The reopened sites, however, are only limited to open-air spaces and will enforce limits on their number of daily visitors. The Forbidden City — which once served as the residence of China’s emperors, for instance — will only accept a maximum of 5,000 visitors daily, instead of the usual average of 80,000. Public parks, meanwhile, will only allow about 30 percent of their usual capacities.
In addition, Gao Dawei, deputy director of the Beijing Gardening and Greening Bureau, said large-scale group activities would remain on hold and that visitors must book tickets in advance online.
According to on-ground information, however, barely anyone can be seen in Beijing’s streets and tourist spots even after the slight relaxation of laws in the city.
“The tourist sites are opened now, but you barely see any tourists there,” a Beijing resident, who only identified herself as a “Mrs. Li,” said in an interview with the Epoch Times.
Authorities have also announced that Beijing will remain on high alert for new cases coming from travelers, however, with a primary focus on Chinese nationals who are returning from overseas trips. (Related: The US government thinks that fighting coronavirus requires spying on your phone’s data.)
According to new rules enforced by the capital, those returning from abroad will be obliged to pay out of pocket for a 14-day quarantine in a designated hotel room upon their arrival. After they return to their homes, travelers must be quarantined again in their hometown for another two weeks.
In addition to these rules for travelers, the Chinese capital has also unveiled new regulations geared towards the promotion of “civilized behavior” among its residents.
As reported by the Guardian, these new regulations include rules requiring residents to cover their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing, not eat while traveling on public transport and wear masks whenever they are out in public. Restaurants and food establishments too will also be required to provide serving utensils to diners, and will also be encouraged — whenever possible — to serve separate portions, instead of the traditional shared family-style meals.
These regulations, which authorities said will come into force on June 1, were announced just before the start of the five-day May 1 holiday and a few weeks ahead of the rescheduled gathering of the National People’s Congress on May 22.
The new regulations are expected to add another layer to the Communist nation’s already stringent efforts to contain the coronavirus, which originated in the city of Wuhan in Hubei Province.
Among the draconian and technology-dependent measures implemented by the country’s ruling party are checkpoints, cell phone applications, cell phone data tracking, remote-operated drones, artificial intelligence (AI) and facial-recognition surveillance technology.
“With such new technologies, we should make full use of them to find the source of infection and contain the source of infection,” epidemiologist Li Lanjuan said in an interview with Chinese state broadcast network CCTV.
Despite the Chinese Communist Party’s repeated praising of their surveillance methods, these have earned scrutiny from the rest of the world, primarily because of China’s lack of data privacy laws.
As of this writing, China has recorded 84,373 coronavirus infections and 4,643 deaths.
