International Public Notice: Corporate Crime

 By Anna Von Reitz

Today we address the British Intelligence Community Cover-Up Narrative, blaming the CIA for the development of the mRNA Bioweapon.  

It seems that not only were the U.S. elections "more rigged than normal" by a CIA cell of Fabians in Frankfurt, Germany, plus complicit Italian intelligentsia and Chinese hackers, but now, the CIA is more generally being blamed for developing the mRNA bioweapon that has already killed and/or maimed nearly a billion people worldwide. 

Our CIA isn't that intelligent and doesn't plan things out and finance them for a hundred years in advance; no doubt they had their part in the crime of the century, just as "THE PEOPLE'S VOICE" is reporting it and just as the most recent CIA Whistleblower has said: "We Designed mRNA to Kill". 

But it's only a part, and a relatively small part. 

No doubt that the evil intent of the mRNA vaccine development is true, so far as it goes, but notice who is pitching this narrative of "the CIA did it" and China is at fault?  Hear the British accent?   

Notice how they say that the weapon was developed in a Chinese laboratory and yet fail to say that it was research paid for by Anthony Fauci with National Institutes of Health money, and was also knowingly done in violation of the moratorium on such research?

Brits are pushing this information blackwashing the CIA and they are pushing it for a reason.  They desperately want to obscure their own part as the genesis of the entire pandemic scheme and the source of the replacement-of-government crimes we are suffering. 

Nonetheless, when you work backward from the final DARPA patents all the way to the first patents giving rise to this technology, what you find is that, once again, the Brits are at the bottom --- and we do mean the very bottom --- of the dogpile they have landed on our doorsteps. 

We can safely observe that the current tragedy began with Amschel Rothschild's scion, Henry de Worms, also known as Lord Pirbright, and the Pirbright Institute funded by his estate. 

Pirbright, together with his contemporary monster, Cecil Rhodes, not only promoted the quasi-science of Eugenics from which the current mRNA tragedy derives, but pioneered the "Corporate Government" model tested by Rhodes' British South Africa Company more than 100 years ago --- the results of which we are also suffering now. 

The CIA, plagued with every political nuance known to Congress, doesn't plan much beyond ten years at most, and doesn't fund much of anything by itself, Black Ops notwithstanding.  It's ridiculous to think that "our" erstwhile intelligence gathering service is the source of this immense multi-generational fraud scheme laced with British elitism and war for profit. 

The CIA's Bad Boy reputation, like America's bad reputation, has been deliberately promoted by the actual source of the problem --- the Government of Westminster and the British Monarchs and the British patrimony et alia, Privy Council, Pirbrights, Rhodes, Sanger, and all the rest.  

What began in England 130 years ago has borne its loathsome fruit and now they want to blame their favorite Errand Boy, the CIA.   

Good luck with that. 

There is an unbroken chain of title with respect to the source of the surreptitious replacement of our lawful governments with incorporated foreign corporations in the business of providing government services, and it goes back to Pirbright, Rhodes, and British Imperialism. 

Just as there is an unbroken chain of research, funding, affiliation, and economic profiteering connecting Pirbright, Rhodes, and their American co-conspirator, pharmaceutical giant Henry Wellcome -- as the primal Causative Agents and funding sources for the present mRNA disaster.  

Bad men and bad ideas enlivened with vast funding sources can easily cause ruin and misery a hundred years after their own physical deaths, and so it is with this British Ballad concerning the Night of the Living Dead Eugenists. 

The very first patents attached to coronavirus benefit the Pirbright Institute and the whole ball of wax rolls onward from there. 

No amount of self-interested British Spin can obscure the actual source of both the British Raj system and the British Eugenics madness that have plagued the world for over a hundred years. 

No smokescreens and blaming of the Errand Boys will do.  The blame and the correction must be properly applied to the Source, or we will all be facing another such "harvest" of British Spleen another hundred years from now. 

Some people have misrepresented our offer of General Amnesty as allowing the criminals to escape, but that is not the political or social reality we advocate.  

We very much agree with, and indeed, insist upon, a reckoning and criminal prosecution of the criminals and criminal institutions involved in both the pandemic and the substitution-of-government schemes.  

What we do not promote is any political response to an a-political problem.  

What we are witnessing are crimes of a particularly heinous but known and well-defined nature. They need to be addressed as crimes and those responsible need to be addressed as criminals. 

Even if the denizens of Whitehall don't like it, they must nonetheless own the evils they have spawned and profited from.  This day has been a long time in coming; for more than 300 years, the ancestors of these same Players have been unjustly enriching themselves and setting up other nations as the Fall Guys for their infamy and the victims of their greed. 

And now, though they can scarcely believe it, their chickens are coming home to roost in an orderly and sensible fashion. 

We do not propose to make the common people of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales suffer for the evils of their Government.  They have suffered enough by being subjugated to these poltroons, and they are not at fault, generally, for the evils promoted by that same government in other corners of the world. 

Likewise, we do not propose that Roman Catholics should be massacred (again) for the evils of their Church Administration. 

Let the innocent live and learn and the guilty be shown up and punished, even if that means looking back a hundred years and more for the source of our present dangers and results in the nationalization of guilty corporations --- their liquidation, forfeiture, or lawful conversion under new management. 

For starters, the endowments of Pirbright, Rhodes, and Wellcome need to be seized upon and distributed to their victims.  Their "legacy" must come to an end. 

The evils these men promoted must be shown up for what they are.  Elitism based on genetics must be observed and recognized for the hideously harmful hokum that it is. 

Likewise, the evils of the "Corporate Government Model" they promoted must be recognized and put firmly under foot. 

All nations and all people on this planet have been harmed by ideas and practices that these few power-mongers in England and America promoted and pioneered using their own personal fortunes. Bill Gates is merely the most recent addition to the Harmful History of Half-Baked Billionaires. 

We propose that an Automatic Binder be applied to all forms of incorporated entities upon enrollment or registration, such that when and if a corporation --- be it a Foundation, a Cooperative, a Non-Governmental Organization, or whatsoever -- promotes violence, injustice, elitism, "research" or anything else resulting in harm to the living public, that corporation must be immediately overturned and must suffer the loss of its assets.

This would go a long way toward controlling and ending the abuse of personal fortunes for ignoble and harmful ends. It would motivate shareholders and board members to care about the results of their policies and their effect upon the public. 

Most importantly, the worldwide adoption of such an Automatic Binder on all forms of corporation would redefine the meaning of "profit" to include broad spectrum and long term social benefit. 

Pirbright, Rhodes, and Wellcome had no respect for life; their arrogance and meddling knew no bounds; empowered by social position and vast wealth, these men have left a legacy of evil ideas and practices that have continued to expand into the modern world and inspired men like Bill Gates to follow in their wanton footsteps.  

If the rest of us want peace and sanity, action must be taken.  The Source of these evils must be recognized and disabled.  

Not only are Pirbright, Rhodes, and Wellcome and their respective endowments directly responsible for the pandemic and the substitution-of-government scheme that has left private, for-profit government services corporations masquerading as governments all over the world, they and their legacy are responsible for the corruption of the courts and the educational system, and the genocides that have plagued mankind, including the genocide of millions of unborn babies each year, and the genocide of AIDS/HIV, a prelude to their current culling of "undesirables". 

It's time for the Source of all this evil to be recognized and for the guilty Corporations and those running them to pay the consequences of their uncaring pursuit of profit and unthinking adherence to policies put in place by misanthropic madmen.

Yes, the Dinar and Dong, Too

 By Anna Von Reitz

We had barely raised our breath to explain why currency speculation in Zim has unhealthy overtones, owing to the means used to secure control of the mineral wealth of Zimbabwe and the foreign interests being served, when someone pointed out that the same conditions apply to currency speculation in Dinar and Dong, too. 

They are right; although the smog of war somewhat obscures the details of the underlying political manipulations and resource confiscations involved, the end result is the same.  

The situation in Zimbabwe is simply more recent in our memory, and carries a more civilian and political overtone, as the foreign mercenary interference in the internal process of the country -- like that in Ukraine -- came like a clap of thunder on a clear day, and was so directly in response to the discovery of the extent of Zimbabwe's mineral wealth. 

However these things have happened, and whether via a massive "war" effort with hundreds of thousands of troops and equipment, or with a squad of terrorist mercenaries planning a coup in a cheap hotel room, the result is the same: 

The currency of the country is unreasonably devalued, leaving a potential for currency speculators to "make a killing" based on the literal killing that has already been done. 

Because people have been murdered and contracts have been forced on the survivors, nothing about any of these currency speculations is moral; any profit realized is unjust enrichment.  

Unfortunately, our foregoing of the "investment" opportunity doesn't stop this injustice and does nothing to comfort or cure it; having been created, speculators will benefit from the opportunity and whether they, individually, are moral or immoral, ceases to be the object of this exercise in social conscience. 

The real issue is interference in the internal affairs of other nations to their detriment. The real issue is profiteering from war and violence. 

Whether our soldiers, unknowingly acting as mercenaries, wear our uniforms in the light of day, or appear in mufti in the middle of the night, makes no actual difference.  

Our men are still being used by foreign interests to do the dirty work; and while our country is not the beneficiary of all this crime, and is not the actual Perpetrator, "America" catches the blame for it just the same.  

Just as Americans are unaware of what went on in Iraq, for example, Iraqis are, generally speaking, unaware of what has gone on here, too.  

The news blackout swings both ways. 

So we are unaware of the fact that Senator Harry Reid contrived to empty fifty years' worth of nuclear waste out of the salt caves in Nevada and Utah and to load it into artillery shells that were exploded throughout the Middle East. 

In the process of polluting the Middle East with our nuclear waste, thousands of American service members were exposed to poisonous levels of radiation right along with their victims.  

Those of us who heard about this and who reacted in horror, were patted on the shoulder and told that it really wasn't as bad as all that --- when it was; and only God knows what the Iraqi people were told or not told.  

If we assume business-as-usual in the British Dogpile we've been living in for the past hundred and sixty years, the victims were blamed for the sudden uptick in cancer deaths, birth defects, and not-so-mysterious symptoms of radiation poisoning: hair loss, loss of teeth, skin eruptions, burns, degradation of the stomach lining, adrenal failure, sterility....

Certainly, when our service members have appeared at the Veterans Administration Hospitals  complaining of all these obvious symptoms of radiation poisoning, the doctors and nurses have shrugged and treated the symptoms without a word. 

Nobody owns up and says, hey, look, you dumped all the radioactive waste from the storage facilities in Utah and Nevada all over the Mideast.  You've been poisoned and there's no cure for it--- not for you and not for the Iraqis who are still living with it, breathing it, drinking it, and being poisoned by it every day.  

Crimes against humanity?  Genocide?  These Perps, men like Harry Reid and John McCain, have killed Americans and Iraqis with equal glee --- and lack of accountability; they've gotten away with calling these mercenary conflicts "wars" and tatted them up with lies that would make Nero blush. 

It has only gotten worse.

Remember Dubyah Bush intoning the words, "weapons of mass destruction" in his peculiar whiny nasal Texas twang, and mentally compare that to Donald Trump's New York-accented voice saying, "Operation Warp Speed".   

When it comes to the government, we get what we tolerate; we have tolerated this behavior and abuse of our country and our people for far too long. 

Both for our own sakes and the world's sake, we have to wake up.

Is it wrong in our opinion to take advantage of the artificially devalued status of the Zim, Dinar, and Dong?  Yes. It is.  People need to think about how this "something for nothing" opportunity has come about. 

And reflect with us that there really is no free lunch. 

Someone is paying for that investment opportunity. 

The someone(s) paying are the people of countries who have suffered brutal war and political takeovers, people whose natural resources are being pillaged and plundered to generate those mammoth profits that everyone else is slavering over. 

For us, the spectre of Vietnam hangs heavy in our memory. All we have to do is shut our eyes and we are awash in the warm humid air and scent of wisteria. That beautiful, mysterious, endlessly varied country where our own generation suffered, has had a remarkable economic and social comeback in the years following the war. We're glad for that. 

The veterans of both sides have suffered the damages of Agent Orange and DDT and all the unexploded mine fields of the heart; the shareholders of Monsanto, Dow Chemical, and Bayer have yet to feel the hurt. 

We believe that these corporations and the men and women who sat in Congress and those who moved the cogs and sent the planes should be held accountable --- must--- be held accountable, in courts of law and in the marketplace, and most of all, in our hearts and minds, we must see the evil they committed in our names. 

And we must respond. 

Maybe it's a stupid, small, and short-sighted thing to forgo an investment in Dong -- a sort of pyrrhic sacrifice to pass on our slice of that pie, but we can't quite get past our impulse to vomit and cry at the same time. 

We remember the terror of the draft and the terror of the IRS and all these same evils that a new generation of Congressional imposters is rabidly seeking to impose on our grandsons and granddaughters. 

And we silently glance at each other and pass the hat and what we are thinking is simply this --- over our dead bodies.

Sunday Within the Octave of Corpus Christie

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year


INTROIT The Lord became my protector, and He brought me forth into a large place: He saved me, because he was well pleased with me. (Ps. XVII.) I will love Thee, O Lord, my strength: the Lord is my firmament, and my refuge, and my deliverer. Glory &c.

COLLECT Make us, O Lord, to have a perpetual fear and love of Thy holy name; for Thou never failest to help and govern those whom Thou dost establish in Thy steadfast love. Thro'.

EPISTLE (I ,John III. 13-18.) Dearly beloved, Wonder not if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not, abideth in death; whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer. And you know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in himself. In this we have known the charity of God, because he bath laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. He that hath the substance of this world, and shall see his brother in need, and shut up his bowels from him, how doth the charity of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word nor in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

EXPLANATION People who are really pious have always something to suffer from the wicked world, as, Jesus foretold, but they do not cease to love their persecutors as their best friends, and are ready, if necessary, to give their life for ,their enemies, as Christ did. Thus should all Christians act; for the love of our neighbor and even of our enemies is a universal command, a law that binds all; it is the life of the soul. Hatred deprives the soul of this life and makes man a murderer, because hatred is the beginning of murder, and often ends in homicide. By love we know the true Christians. (John. XIII. 35.) St. John even considers love the certain sign of being chosen for eternal life, when he says: We know, we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. Alas! how few will be chosen from among the Christians of to-day, because there is so little love among them! Empty compliments, assurances of friendships &c. love appears only in words, only on the tongue; and such idle, ephemeral, worthless love is found everywhere in this world; but that which is love in truth and reality, which shows charity to the suffering, how rare it is! and yet only to this love is promised eternal life, because it alone rests on the love of God.

Second Sunday After PentecostGOSPEL (Luke XIV. 16-24.) At that time, Jesus spoke to the Pharisees this parable: A certain man made a great supper, and invited many. And he sent his servant, at the hour of supper, to say to them that were invited, that they should come, for now all things are ready. And they began all at once to make excuse. The first said to him: I have bought a farm, and I must needs go out, and see it; I pray thee hold me excused. And another said: I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to try them; I pray thee hold me excused. And another said: I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. And the servant returning, told these things to his lord. Then the master of the house being angry, said to his, servant: Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the feeble, and the blind, and the lame. And the servant said: Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the Lord said to the servant: Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house maybe filled. But I say unto you, that none of these men that were invited shall taste of my supper.

What as to be understood by this great supper?

The Church of Christ on earth, in which His doctrine and His most precious Flesh and Blood are given as food to those who belong to her; also the Church triumphant in heaven, in which God Himself, in the beatific vision, is the nourishment. This supper is called great, because God Himself has founded the Church; because the Church embraces heaven and earth, hence many belong and will belong to her; and because having ended the contest on earth, she will last forever in heaven. There the saints of God will enjoy the Highest Good for all eternity, and will have nothing to wish for, since all their desires will there be realized. O, what happiness it is that we are invited to His supper, and as guests are nourished by the teachings of Christ, and by His most sacred Flesh and Blood.

Who is it that prepares the super?

It is Christ, the God-Man, who for our benefit has not only instituted His Church to which He has entrusted doctrine and the Sacrament of His Flesh and Blood, but has gained eternal salvation for us by His passion and death, and who has invited us first by the prophets, who foretold Him and His divine kingdom, and afterwards by His apostles, and their successors to His great supper.

Who are they who excuse themselves?

They are principally the Jews who bound by pride and avarice to earthly possessions, and blinded by the pleasures of the world, did not recognize Jesus, and remained outside of His church. By him who said he had bought a farm are understood those who by constant anxieties about the possession of earthly goods, and the riches of this world, become indifferent to eternal salvation. By him who had bought five yoke of oxen, is to be understood that sort of busy men who are so burdened with worldly affairs that they find no time to work for heaven, for they even appropriate Sundays and festivals to their worldly affairs. By him who had. taken a wife, and could not come, are represented the carnal, impure men who have rendered themselves by their lusts incapable of spiritual and heavenly joys. Since these different classes of people do not wish to have part in the heavenly banquet, God has excluded them and called others.

Who are meant by the poor, the feeble, the blind and the lame?

The humble and submissive Jews, the publicans, also the Samaritans and the Gentiles, who did not reject Jesus and His doctrine as did the proud, high-minded, carnal Scribes and Pharisees to whom Jesus spoke this parable. The former faithfully received Him, entered His Church, and became participators in eternal happiness. This is daily repeated, because God excludes from the kingdom of heaven those proud, avaricious, and carnal Christians who are ever invited by His servants, the priests, to the enjoyment of holy Communion, but who reject the invitation. On the contrary God welcomes the poor, despised people, the penitent sinners, by separating them from the love of the world by the inspiration of His grace, and by the adversities which He sends them. Thus, in a measure, He forces them to take part in the spiritual joys of a sincerely pious life in His Church on earth, and in the heavenly bliss of His Church in heaven.

SUPPLICATON I thank Thee, O most merciful Jesus that Thou hast called me into Thy Church, permitting me sc often to share in the banquet of Thy love, and that by Thy sufferings and death Thou hast obtained the joys of heaven for me. Urge me as seems pleasing to Thee, compel me by temporal trials that by the use of these graces I may obtain the place which Thou hast prepared for me in heaven.


I have married a wife, and therefore I can not come. (Luke XIV. 29.)

From this foolish excuse it would seem as if married life were an obstacle to arriving at the heavenly banquet, whereas lawful, chaste, Christian marriage is, on the contrary, a means of eternal salvation for those to whom the gift of continency is not given. The excuse of this married man was not grounded on his station in life, but on his inordinate inclination for carnal pleasures which render the one who gives way to it, unfit for spiritual or heavenly things, for the sensual man perceiveth not the things that are of the Spirit of God. (I Cor. II. 14.)

Unfortunate indeed are they who suffer themselves to be carried away by their sensual lusts, who give away the priceless jewel of chastity and purity of heart which makes man equal to the angels, (Matt. XXII. 30.) who for a momentary enjoyment of sinful pleasure lose that white and precious garment in which chaste souls will shine for ever in heaven before the face of God! What benefit does the impure man derive from the gratification of vile lust? He gains the anger and contempt of God; intolerable disgust when the sin is consummated; the torment of a remorseful conscience, and unless he repent, the eternal torments of hell, for the apostle says: Do not err: neither fornicators, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate shall possess the kingdom of God, (I Cor. VI. 9, 10.) It is seen from the examples of the Old Law, hove much God hates and abominates the sins of impurity. Why did God regret having created man? (Gen. VI. 6.) , Why did He destroy all except a very few, by a universal deluge? (Gen. VI. 17.) Why did He lay the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in ashes by pouring upon them fire and brimstone? (Gen. XIX.) Why did He punish the two brothers Her and Onan, by a sudden death? (Gen. XXXVII. 7. 10.) Why did He permit the whole tribe of Benjamin to be extirpated? (Judges XX.) Because of their detestable sins of impurity. And is not this vice an object of the just wrath of God? By these sins an impure man disgraces his body which should be a member of Christ, a temple of the Holy Ghost; he disgraces his soul the image of God, purified and purchased by the precious blood of Christ, and lowers himself beneath the animal, which, void of intellect, follows its instinct; he weakens the power of his body and soul, and ruins his health; he loses the respect of the good, scandalizes his fellowmen, voluntarily separates himself from the communion of saints, deprives himself of the sanctifying grace of God and participation in the merits of Jesus and His saints, and, if he continues like an animal to wallow in this vice, he finally falls into such blindness and hardness of heart that eternal truths, death, judgment, hell, and eternity no longer make any impression upon him; the most abominable crimes of impurity he considers as trifles, as human weaknesses, no sin at all. He is therefore but seldom, if ever, converted, because the evil habit has become his second nature, which he can no longer overcome without an extraordinary grace from God. This God seldom gives, because the impure man generally despises ordinary means and graces, and therefore despairs and casts himself into the pool of eternal fire, where the worm dies not, and where with Satan and his angels the impure shall be for ever tormented.

Do not suffer yourself to be deceived, Christian soul, by the words "love and friendship", which is sought to cover this vice and make it appear a weakness clinging to man. This impure love is a fire which has its origin in hell, and there it will eternally torment the bodies in which it has prevailed. That which God so much detests and so severely punishes, certainly cannot be a trifle, a human weakness! Impress deeply on your heart that all impure thoughts, desires and looks, to which you consent, all impure words, songs, exposures, touches, jokes, and 'such things, are great sins which exclude you from the kingdom of heaven, into which nothing defiled can enter. Remember that he who looks at a woman with a lustful desire, has already, as Christ says, committed adultery in his heart. (Matt. V. 28.) We must, then, carefully guard against "such trifles", as the wicked world calls them, if we do not wish to expose ourselves to the greatest danger of losing our souls. Although it is difficult for an impure person to be converted, yet he should not despair. God does not cast away even the greatest sinner; Jesus forgave the adulteress in the temple, and forgave and received Mary Magdalen. But he who wishes to repent must make use of the proper means to regain the grace of God, and prevent a relapse. Those who have not defiled themselves by the sin of impurity can make use of the following means:

  1. Constant prayer. Hence the admonition of the wise King; As I knew that I could not otherwise be continent, except God gave it, I went to the Lord and besought him. (Wisd. VIII. 21.)

  2. Mortification of the flesh by fasting and abstinence. Jesus says these impure spirits can in no other way be cast out but by prayer and fasting. (Matt. XVII. 20.)

  3. The frequent meditation on the four last things, and on the bitter sufferings of our Lord; for there is, says St. Augustine, no means more powerful and effective against the heat of lust than reflection on the ignominious death of the Redeemer.

  4. The quiet consideration of the temporal and eternal evils which follow from this vice, as already described.

  5. The love and veneration of the Blessed Virgin who is the mother of beautiful love, the refuge of all sinners, of whom St. Bernard says: "No one has ever invoked her in his necessity without being heard."

  6. The careful mortification of the eyes. The pious Job made a covenant with his eyes, that. he would not so much as look upon a virgin. (Job XXXI. 1.)

  7. The avoidance of evil occasions, especially intercourse with persons of the other sex. "Remember," says St. Jerome, "that a woman drove out the inhabitants of paradise, and that you are not holier than David, stronger than Samson, wiser than Solomon, who all fell by evil intercourse."

  8. The avoidance of idleness: for idleness, says the proverb, is the beginning of all evil.

  9. The immediate banishing of all bad thoughts by often pronouncing the names of Jesus and Mary, which, as St. Alphonsus Ligouri says, have the special power of driving away impure thoughts.

  10. The frequent use of the holy Sacraments of Penance and of the Altar. This last remedy in particular is a certain cure if we make known to our confessor our weaknesses, and use the remedies he prescribes. The Scripture says that frequent Communion is the seed from which virgins spring, and the table which God has prepared against all temptations that annoy us.

COLLECT Inflame, O Lord, our loins and hearts with the fire of Thy Holy Spirit, that we may serve Thee with pure bodies, and please Thee with clean hearts. Amen.
