Operation Jupiter: Nigerian military Yellow Fever vaccine campaign!

17 OCT 2017 (05:07 UTC-07 Tango 06) 25 Mehr 1396/26 Muharram 1439/28 Geng-Xu 4715

Just days after invading Biafra in an attempt to force a supposed Monkey Pox vaccine upon villagers, the U.S. backed Nigerian Army has launched a new Yellow Fever vaccination campaign within its own borders.

This announcement came from the United Nation’s World Health Organization (WHO).  According to WHO It’s part of a campaign to force at least 874-thousand people to get vaccinated, however, the Nigerian government says they plan on pushing 960-thousand vaccinations over a ten days period!  Cases of Yellow Fever have been reported in two Nigerian states, but health officials admit they have no way of knowing exactly how many people are sick.   Amazingly, in just three days they claim they’ve already inoculated 200-thousand people!

Nigeria is getting its vaccines from the International Coordination Group (which gets help from Bill & Melinda Gates founded Gavi The Vaccine Alliance).

I’ve discovered that oil rich, U.S. and European supported Nigeria has become a classic Operation Jupiter conspiracy,  becoming a hotbed of recurrent diseases and of new mystery diseases.  In the past few weeks outbreaks of deadly MonkeyPox, hemorrhagic Yellow Fever, hemorrhagic Lassa Fever, etc.  In fact, the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria just stated “Our Association is miffed at this development which has exposed Nigerians to preventable and treatable diseases.”

The Association actually blamed the outbreaks of deadly diseases on the government’s initial resistance to forcing a vaccination program on the public.  Yet, suddenly the Nigerian government is going whole-hog on forcing people to get shots.   Mmmm, has Operation Jupiter entered the extortion by biological warfare phase?

In regards to the case of forced MonkeyPox vaccinations in Nigeria and Biafra, a Nigerian newspaper is reporting that the government “has denied executing vaccination against Monkeypox” claiming “the disease had no vaccine”.

In August of this year, the U.S. Air Force conducted African Partnership Flight Nigeria, a training op for several African countries to prepare for a major medical emergency requiring aero-medevac of mass casualties.



Operation Jupiter: Military imposed vaccination program kills three!

“MASSOB has condemned the forceful immunization and administration of unknown drugs to Biafran children by medical personnel of Nigerian Army, which led to the unconfirmed death of about three children in Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area, Anambra State. “We see this camouflaged medical humanitarian service of Nigerian Army as another dimensional step to cause annihilation of the people of Biafra. This  annihilation exercise can be described as Operation Python Death…..

….our intelligence agency have confirmed that the source of the immunization drugs were brought from Iran without the due process of clearing of imported goods, our intelligence report also proved that NAFDAC was sidelined before administration of the killer poison. The poisonous substances administered in Ozubulu are out rightly different from the medical drugs administered in Nkwegwu, Isukwuato and Mbaise. This is a biological warfare waged against our people by Nigeria state.-Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra

In the predominantly Christian African country of Biafra, U.S. backed soldiers from oil rich Nigeria tried to force Biafran children to be vaccinated against so-called Monkey Pox.  It’s apparently in response to an outbreak of MonkeyPox in Nigeria, and calls into question the sovereignty of other countries who don’t want to take part in mass vaccination programs.

Local news media reported that Nigerian troops invaded Biafraland and Anambra State with the goal to “inject their children to death”.   In response families pulled their kids from school and disappeared, leaving almost nobody to be vaccinated.

Indigenous People of Biafra leaders announced that the frustrated soldiers had left, but they “would raise the alarm immediately” if they returned.  

USAfriCom (U.S. Africa Command) recently discussed with the Nigerian military plans for an African Land Forces Summit in 2018.

Vaccine Fail: Flu shots don’t work on cancer victims!

Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital reporting that giving influenza vaccinations to leukemia victims undergoing treatment is a waste of time.

The hospital compared flu infection rates of vaccinated patients against unvaccinated patients and found no difference with infection rates.

This is not surprising as it’s been known for some time that if your immune system is already fighting an illness the vaccines don’t work!  Yet, the obviously pro-vaccine hospital now wants everybody in connection with the cancer victim to be vaccinated, from the caregivers to every relative that might come into contact with the victim.  It’s called vaccination ‘cocooning’. 


“tragically pathetic” 12,000 jobs instantly killed! : Sears Kmart death spiral, October 2017

Florida:  Sears Holdings lackey Seritage Growth Properties announced it will shutdown its huge Sears store and Auto Center at the  Westfield Broward (aka Broward Mall) in Plantation.  It’s part of a $20-million USD plan to turn the 55-thousand square meters (180-thousand square feet) store into smaller retail and restaurant spaces, which will include a much smaller Sears operation (the Auto Center will not return).  No word on when the shutdown/redevelopment will take place as the plan must be approved by city zoning, but Seritage Growth Properties boasts that it already has new, smaller, tenants lined up.

Vaccine Fail: Swine Flu shot gives 70 more people narcolepsy!

05 OCT 2017 (14:54 UTC-07 Tango 06) 12 Mehr 1396/13 Muharram 1439/16 Geng-Xu 4715

At least 70 people in Ireland are suing the taxpayer funded Health Products Regulatory Authority (Irish Medicines Board), claiming the Pandemrix vaccine gave them sleeping sickness!

That specific swine flu shot, made by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), was administered in 2009-10.  The lawsuit is the result of the discovery of a vaccine safety report issued by GlaxoSmithKline to the then called Irish Medicines Board.

The safety study compared German made Pandemrix to Canadian made Arepanrix and found that the adverse effects of Pandemrix is as much as ten times worse than Arepanrix, yet the Irish health czars still used Pandemrix.  The lawsuit also claims the Health Products Regulatory Authority (Irish Medicines Board) intentionally hid the vaccine safety problem from government regulators.

It should be noted that the vaccine safety study did not include children.  In 2013, at least 8-hundred European children developed narcolepsy after getting the Pandemrix flu shot!  In March 2017, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledged that Pandemrix was being blamed for skyrocketing narcolepsy cases in Europe.   The fact that some countries require vaccine safety studies is proof that vaccines are not ‘safe’.

The U.S. CDC and Food & Drug Administration run a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  It’s not a way of testing a vaccine before approval for use, it’s only for reporting health problems after vaccination and most people don’t even know about VAERS.

Gun Ban Fail: Security Guard burns to death school children!

05 OCT 2017 (13:58 UTC-07 Tango 06) 12 Mehr 1396/13 Muharram 1439/16 Geng-Xu 4715

A 50 years old former security guard is accused of setting a kindergarten on fire, killing four children and their teacher, 40 others are wounded (25 hospitalized, 15 treated and released), most of the children are four or five years old.  The attacker also set himself on fire and is dead.

Locals believe the attack was vengeance by the security guard for being fired, after eight years on-the-job. Other reports say the security guard was suffering from health problems and asked for time off, but was told to get a doctor’s excuse. Police haven’t confirmed either report.  It happened in Janaúba, Minas Gerais, Brazil.   The local hospital is asking for donations of supplies that are specific for treating burns.

Why didn’t the security guard use a gun?  Afterall, Brazil is flooded with illegal guns, and there’s neverending gun violence:“Clashes between drug dealers and the police have been frequent since last Friday, September 29th, when the Army left Rocinha after a week of occupation.”

Also: Former Rio Olympics official arrested for fraud discovered to be in possession of illegal guns.

Maybe it’s not the gun that drives people to kill?

“In Brazil, all firearms are required to be registered with the minimum age for gun ownership being 25. It is generally illegal to carry a gun outside a residence, and a special permit granting the right to do so is granted to certain groups, such as law enforcement officers. To legally own a gun, an owner must hold a gun license, which costs BRL R$1000, and pay a fee every three years to register the gun, currently at BRL R$85. Registration can be done online or in person with the Federal Police.”-Wikipedia

Vaccine Fail: 156% increase in Australian ‘Horror Flu’! Experts falsely blame Super Spreader children!

04 OCT 2017 /10:46 UTC-07 Tango 06 (12 Mehr 1396/13 Muharram 1439/16 Geng-Xu 4715)

“The influenza vaccine doesn’t seem to be as effective this year as previous years, especially for elderly members of the community. Some years there are late seasonal changes, appearances of new strains or mutations. Depending on the type of strain and change, or lack thereof, there can be any number of end results in terms of vaccine effectiveness.”– Tony Bartone, Australian Medical Association

This year the British empire country of Australia is experiencing a 156% increase in flu infections, compared to last year.  Some people are calling it the Horror Flu.  So far 370 people have died, a little less than half being old people, H3N2 is the most common influenza.

However, despite admitting there might be a problem with vaccines, the leftist control-freak health ‘experts’ still blame everything on Australia’s typically low vaccination rate.  In fact they’re now blaming it on children who’re not vaccinated, calling them “super spreaders”!   Apparently, even with offering free flu shots, only 10% of Aussies get vaccinated, far fewer than number of people who get vaccinated in United States.

But here’s the real reason why I think the health czars’ scapegoating of unvaccinated children in the Commonwealth of Nations member is hyperbole; just last week the United Nations’ World Health Organization (WHO) warned the Australian health system that its flu shots were not up-to-snuff, declaring this year’s vaccine to be “suboptimal”.

While blaming it on people who don’t get vaccinated Tony Bartone, vice president of the Australian Medical Association, admitted to a truth about viruses: “Basically, all creatures evolve and viruses are no different. They become prevalent because of their ability to rapidly evolve.”

Remember, this year’s vaccines are based on the previous year’s microbes.  In a complicated way the UN admitted they got it wrong when trying to guess what kind of influenza to prepare for with this year’s vaccine: “We essentially made a decision about changing the vaccine’s A(H3) strain for the 2018 season. About 60 to 65% of influenza in Australia was caused by the influenza A(H3) strain and the majority of the recent viruses didn’t react as well with the vaccine strain.”-Kanta Subbarao, WHO Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza at the Doherty Institute in Melbourne, Australia

Idaho:  While the state’s Department of Labor boasts record low unemployment numbers, and despite some rural counties reporting record low population numbers, the U.S. Census Bureau is reporting record numbers of homeless people in the sparsely populated Gem State and it’s only going up!  Also, a state run homeless Point-In-Time counting program claims a 10% drop in homeless people since 2016, but the Vice President of Housing and Support Programs, Brady Ellis, admits “We believe there’s a considerable number of more homeless individuals…..a lot of variables there in terms of identifying them and being able to include them in the numbers we use.”  It should also be noted that the Point-In-Time homeless survey counts only those people who are willing to answer the survey questions.   East Idaho News recently conducted an experiment to see how beggars were being treated in eastern Idaho.

Homeless in Idaho related:  Despite Mormon dominated Pocatello City Council, and the Bonneville Neighborhood Association, denying her request to open a homeless shelter Pastor Jacqualine ‘Big Momma’ Thomas is still at it!  



Illinois:  “I’m getting out!” says Rik Mallin about his home state and never ending across-the-board tax hikes, including the latest 32% hike in state income tax!  The U.S. Census Bureau says Illinois is losing the most citizens of any other state,  because of tax hikes and the suck-ass-economy.  In Rockford, after 33 years Enders Flowers shutting down in October, so the long-time owner can retire.  In Bloomington, after 63 years Hobbyland shutting down in October, after a failed attempt to sell the store.

North Dakota: In Bismarck, after 20 years the owners of One World announced on Facebook they’re shutting down.  Also in Bismarck, Juke Joint Comics shutting down in October: “Unfortunately rent goes up, bills go up.

SEARS KMART DEATH SPIRAL, September 2017: “Remorseful”




U.S. government shenanigans, September 2017: “I’m not stupid!”

U.S. food crisis, September 2017: “WE’RE SPREAD TOO THIN, HONESTLY.”


“I’m not stupid!” Famous last words of a taxpayer funded CEO: U.S. government shenanigans, September 2017

Incomplete list of U.S. Federal/State/Local Government self-destruct announcements for September 2017:

California: After 47 years the taxpayer funded San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery shutdown, it’s known for its transsexual displays.  But don’t think it’s dead and gone, taxpayers are funding a new sexual alternative artist display space in the War Memorial building.  To me sexual identity is more personal than religious identity, therefore government should not be involved, especially regarding the spending of tax dollars to promote it!

Connecticut: Municipalities warning of mass layoffs due to an expected, and dreaded, massive cut in state taxpayer funding. 

Florida: Taxpayer funded Fluor Federal Solutions eliminated 145 jobs at Naval Air Station Pensacola!

Idaho:  A lawsuit by Shoshone-Bannock Tribes revealed that chemical company FMC stopped paying for the storage of hazardous waste on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation (known as Eastern Michaud Flats Superfund site).  FMC paid the fees until suddenly tearing down its chemical factory and abandoning the site in 2002, yet continued to store hazardous waste there.  A federal court ruled FMC owes the tribe $19.5-million USD.

After years of claiming the economy was growing, and denying there was a growing homeless problem, and of treating homeless people like criminals to be rounded up and put in ‘concentration camps’, and despite officially record low unemployment numbers, the city of Boise, students at Boise State University, and Ada County, are relenting and spending millions of taxpayer and donor dollars building first ever dedicated homeless services called Our Path Home and New Path Community Housing!  And in a No-Shit-Sherlock! moment a homeless advocate admitted that past homeless policies, which basically criminalized people for being homeless, failed to stop homelessness: “Though we were well-intentioned, we as a community were retraumatizing the same population we were trying to help. It’s a very traumatic process to be, let’s say, discharged from a hospital to an emergency shelter, to putting your name on maybe 13 waiting lists around the county, to having to retell your story 13 times, to not being sure when your name next comes up on the list.”-Wyatt Schroeder, CATCH of Ada County

Related; privately run homeless shelter rejected:   The Mormon dominated city of Pocatello promptly revoked the temporary operating permit for the planned Big Mama’s homeless shelter after an area Muslim doctor made a huge donation to the project. 

The Gem State’s worsening problem with its foster care Guardians ad Litem (GaL) program resulted in the legislature increasing taxpayer funding by 75% (most GaLs are private volunteer organizations), and it made national news with U.S. News & World Report. 

More shenanigans for Idaho’s prison system after a man arrested for driving intoxicated was put into a cell with a convicted mass-murderer.  Yep, the mass-murderer killed the drunk guy!

The new owner of the only funeral home in Valley County discovered that the former county coroner was ‘disappearing’ the bodies of locals who recently died.  Eventually an investigation by Idaho State Police was launched.  However the new owner of the funeral home said this “We were getting calls from families wanting to know where their loved ones were. I didn’t have any clue where the bodies were…..    He was keeping the bodies at his home in the coroner’s truck….”   Apparently the former coroner, Nathan Hess, was selling the bodies in Boise because he’s been charged with “using public position for personal gain”.

For the third time in a row another sudden resignation of a public official, this time over sexual harassment and even “violence”.  It was revealed that in August that the Controller’s Office Chief of Staff Dan Goicoechea suddenly resigned after an investigation was launched into claims by a state employee of “sexual advancements” and “threats of violence” by Goicoechea. The employee said she was not the only one threatened and that such acts had been ongoing with other employees before she was hired.  What’s also interesting is that state government officials waited a month before revealing the resignation.

Another ‘elected’ official revealed to be lying, this time about her residency status.  From 2010 to 2016 Priscilla Giddings claimed residency in Ada County, according to property tax records, yet she was elected as the state representative for Idaho County in 2016.  State law says you must reside in the county you want to represent for at least one year before running for state office.  State law also says you can claim property tax exemption only for the home you live in.

Despite ‘elected’ leaders constantly claiming growth in the state, the population in the Clark County is officially crashing and burning.  The U.S. Census Bureau ranks Clark County among the 15 most sparsely populated counties in the United States at only one person for every two square miles!  The population has been declining since 2000 (which, as I’ve written before, is when the economy went south for Idaho, and has yet to recover), and is expected to continue declining (there’s only 860 people currently in the county).  Declining local populations are another reason why state leaders are accepting additional federal bribes, I mean funding to take in immigrants and refugees at record numbers.

Crashing local population numbers might be one reason Idaho leaders are boasting record low unemployment numbers!

Illinois: Illinois Policy Institute estimates that one Illinois resident leaves the state forever every five minutes!  Chicago Tribune reported In 2016, Illinois lost 37,508 people, putting the state’s population at its lowest level in nearly a decade, according to U.S. census data”,  and that’s on top of the record of approximately 2-million citizens who left between 1985 and 2015!  The report blames government:  “Some of those who are leaving Illinois say they’re frustrated with their tax burden……..Illinois lawmakers passed a spending plan over the summer, one that involved a 32 percent income tax hike for residents.”   Speaking of taxes, Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office laid off an undisclosed number of employees due to lack of taxpayer funding, leaving metal detection scanners in county facilities with nobody to operate them.

Massachusetts: In Worcester, after 89 years the pissed-off owner of Shack’s Clothing say he’s forced to shutdown by outrageous property tax: “It had nothing to do with business and everything to do with tax assessments……We sold the building….I’m retiring, I don’t care. I’ve been doing this for 47 years and have seen the city deteriorate, little by little.”-Jeffrey Shack
