Exclusive: Russia, Syria and More

Nahed Al Husaini, Exclusive

British political strategist Anthony David Canivet Webber, in reaction to the various leaks in media about the discord between Syria and Russia, said “the Syrian government led by President Assad has made major achievements and made many well reasoned decisions to save Syria from the Islamist onslaught.”

“Obtaining Russian support has been a strategic game changer. The same applies to support from Iran and others. These decisions have all helped changed the tide of war in their favour.“

“In a conflic situation it is very difficult to make the right decisions at the right time because there is a need to have the right prioritisation of where to put forces and resources. Broadly these decisions have been the right ones. President Assad has also been seen as  the spirit of the Syrian people’s resolve and determination to win through during nine years of conflict

It is an amazing achievement under such horrendous odds. President Assad certainly deserves credit for what he had achieved,” he added.

Regarding Potential conflict with the Russians, Webber said “It may well be that from time to time the Russians would have preferred the Syrian government to be more co-operative with their political line but these things will happen when two allies are working together with a common objective .

Russia can be commended for being very clever politically and militarily from the very onset of their involvement. They obviously would prefer the country they have invested so much in terms of military and other support , to have maximum agreement with how they go about achieving their objectives.

This publicity could be just a reminder to Syria about how much efforts Russia has put into saving Syria. President Putin is an indomitable man who is used to getting his way. His way has generally been politically and militarily the correct course of action. He may want the Syrian government to be more grateful and perhaps humble. He also is perhaps aware that Syria is taking more assistance from the Chinese, as with the new successful air defense system .”

“The Syrians sometimes feel that the support of the Russians is qualified . That the Russians tolerate the continued Israeli bombing of strategic and military targets in Syria, which does cause civilian as well as military loss of life, is something Syrian people find very perplexing . They feel Russia is playing an international power game and is prepared to tolerate some sacrifices of Syrian military targets as long as they do not go too far .

President Assad could be accused of being too tolerant too but he is looking at the wider picture of keeping Russian support and not giving Israel an excuse to wage much heavier attacks on Syrian soil,” he added.

“There has recently been publicity too, of the family orienrated power struggles in Syria and the influence President Assad’s cousin had . This extended to many important contracts, especially in relation to Syria’s oil and gas resources. It is said that his mismanagement largely contributed to Syria losing many of these resources to ISIS daesh and other jihadists as well as the Kurds.

To learn about all that went on was a disturbing revelation about some of the major corruption which has gone on in Syria . When there is a war to fight, issues such as dealing with corruption sometimes get put back . In reality they need to be dealt with immediately because such corruption is of propaganda value to the jihadists and others. It is an indication of President Assad’s strength that he is starting to deal with corruption and the misuse of power. To those outside of Syria who do not understand that bribery and corruption at least on a minor scale is almost part of daily life, it come as a bit of shock to discover that it can exist on a much larger scale too.

It is to be hoped that President Assad will make efforts to clear Syria of any remaining corruption and the abuse of power by clans, individuals and groups . In the outside world President Assad has succeeded in accumulating a large number of supporters who admire the way he has pulled Syria through this difficult period . They would very much back him in completely clearing Syria of any bribery, corruption and misuse of power issues. One key issue President Assad needs to resolve is the effectiveness of his Information Ministry in dealing with the outside world, journalists, commentators and influencers. It is often very difficult to obtain information of interest to the media from the government and this definitely is not helping them in obtaining more sympathetic support in the world media. This is all very important as the Syrian conflict enters its final stages,” webber said

“The battle for Idhib is the crucial one . It is why those opposing Syria are putting everything into it . Like the last throw of the dice . Every piece of propaganda and military effort will be used to stop the Syrian government . Syria has thus had the invasion of Turkish official and unofficial forces which has undoubtedly complicated the situation . At the same time ISIS daesh and other jihadists have sprung back into causing nuisances in other areas. It is strongly argued that these resurgences could not happen without outside support, such as from the Americans. It is a difficult time for Syria and there will be tactical disagreements with Russia and others. But at the end it is very likely that President Assad And his government will pull through, and that final victory and a sigh of relief for the Syrian people will come about. Then the major reconstruction of Syria can begin in earnest. It is in fact amazing to the outside observer that any reconstruction has been achieved at all, but it has been,” he concluded.

WUHANGATE – 7. Bio-Weapons Dossier. Pentagon & Fauci 28 Us Labs’ Secrets. Risky Tests with CoronaVirus

UN BWC 2015 report highlighted $824 millions for bio-defense in many facilities: also for Homeland Security projects with Battelle in Fort Detrick

by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio for VT Italy

An extremely confidential file, public but buried in the archives of UNODA, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs in Geneva, raises suspicions against the USA for the SARS-COV-2 pandemic that exploded in the context of a bio-warfare of financial, Masonic, military and intelligence mighty of a transnational Deep State.

In the year 2015 alone, during the Barack Obama administration, the Stars and Stripes Government financed with $ 824 million the studies on biological weapons to 28 BLS level 2.3 or 4 laboratories operating nationwide. Without considering unknown funding for the other 25 labs around the world.

We find out this figure thanks to the 2015 Biological Weapons Convention report that we obtained: the only one traceable from an OSINT source on the web because those of the following years are not available (but we have already found and will elaborate soon those from the United Kingdom) .

The cover of the 2015 BCW USA report filed with UNODA in 2016 – PDF at the end of the article

The top three managers of those funds were the Department of Defense (DOD) with $ 593 million, the Department of Health (HHS) with $ 109 million, through NIAID, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, headed by renowned Dr. Antonio Fauci, which also had control over some Pentagon research centers but also others financed by the Homeland Security Department (DHS) with $ 103 million.

All studies were, of course, conducted for bio-defense but having largely been carried out on military sites such as the infamous Fort Detrick, partially closed for bio-security losses in July 2019, or the lesser known Fort Collins and Kirtland Air Force Base, so we can never be sure of their real purposes.

Especially because the official BWC dossier filed by Washington at UNODA in Geneva in April 2016 also has many areas of shadow on the activities of some structures, on some research kept secret by the Pentagon and even on the existence of some laboratories such as Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Silver Spring, Maryland. In the Biological Weapons Convention (BCW) it is not even mentioned despite specializing in the U.S. Military HIV Research Program was one of the first centers to test a vaccine against MERS in 2019, the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome, variant of SARS, originated from one of the many strains of CoronaVirus.

An overview of the 5 Fort Detrick research centers in Frederick, Maryland

For example, it is unknown which structures are subsidized with $ 8.5 million by the Evinronmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) dependent on DHS for the risks of chemical, bacteriological, radiological and nuclear contamination (CBRN ) of air and water.

While among the studies cited, alongside the very numerous on Anthrax, Botulinum, Ebola and Marburg, there is no shortage of those for a vaccine on HIV and obviously on SARS in 2003 and on MERS in 2014.

There are also at least 5 experiments on CoronaVirus strains conducted with the so-called dangerous “gain of function” that has a “dual use” drug-weapon potential value, and others on “recombinant” viruses; these are agents genetically modified in the laboratory, built to develop vaccines, with the introduction of genetic sequences of other pathogens such as, according to the virologist Luc Montagnier, it would have happened for SARS-CoV-2.

WUHAN-GATE – 2. HIV TRACKS INSIDE CORONAVIRUS “BIO-WEAPON”. Proof by Indian Research Misteriously Concealed

In the RNA strands of this new strain of CoronaVirus, in fact, the French professor has recently identified traces of HIV, the viral principle of AIDS that he himself discovered so much as to win the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008. That would be the proof that Covid-19 was built artificially by man with genetic bio-engineering, according to the famous academic who credited the Indian study published and then mysteriously withdrawn from the Kuzuma School of Biology in New Delhi.

For the White House, the faults for the virus – that has already killed more than 257 thousand in the world and over 73 thousand in the United States alone – must be sought in China. American President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claim that the pathogen has come out of a laboratory and continue to point the finger at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in the area of ​​the first outbreak of the epidemic in Asia.

Now also many European athletes say they have contracted a mysterious and very powerful influence there already in October 2019 during the World Military Games held in Wuhan which increase the clues on the spread of the epidemic prior to its official discovery in December.

But Trump and Pompeo do not provide evidence and above all do not tell the whole truth. Iran, in fact, in the obscuration of the big media, had called into question Washington. Beijing has tried to do before entrenching itself in the silence with which it is censoring all scientific research and the mysterious deaths of some scientists implicated in the studies.


However, the White House accusations turned against the US itself after various journalistic inquiries showed that the Chinese Virological Institute was actually financed by the NIAID of Fauci with $ 3.7 million through the USAID project, the Washington government agency, which is the operational arm of the Central Intelligence Agency in international development projects and has often been used to finance regime change worldwide (such as in Syria and Venezuela).

Professor Montagnier himself, now a researcher and academic professor in Shanghai, argued that the pandemic is “a business between China and the USA”. In light of all this, therefore, seem ridiculous the denials of the World Health Organization, of the director of the American National Institute of Health and of the CDC Anthony Fauci, and of US intelligence, which continue to support the natural origin of the virus because they well know, otherwise, that they could be the main suspects in a well orchestrated and even better concealed conspiracy.

As we have shown in the last two reportages Wuhangate 4 and 5, in fact, under the aegis of the PREDICT 2 project financed by USAID, research was carried out on CoronaViruses all over the world in which OMS, CDC and NIAID were global partners.

NIAID director Anthony Fauci with American President Donald Trump

Among the most disturbing studies, the chimeric supervirus SHC014-MA15 developed with genetic bioengineering by manipulating a SARS strain of horseshoe bats from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with the help of scientists and the Wuhan laboratory always in the USAID-PREDICT 2 projects launched in 2009 by the Barack Obama administration.

This sensational research, which ended up in the media spotlight, proves the effective ability to build a highly lethal and antidote-free virus for “Dual Use” purposes, that is, both for the search for a vaccine and for a bacteriological weapon. To do this, level 3 or 4 biosecurity laboratories with molecular biology scientists and some engineers for the manipulation of DNA or RNA with the Crispr-Cas9 genetic editing kit are indispensable.

WUHANGATE – 4. “Covid-19 manipulated, CHINA-US Hidden Affair”. Class-Action for Bio-Weapon in Texas

In reports 1 and 7 on the CoronaVirus Bio-Weapon theory and in Wuhangate 5 we saw the suspicious and in some cases fatal experiments conducted by the US Department of Defense (DoD) DTRA agency in some of the 25 bio-laboratories managed in foreign countries, especially in Georgia with the help of the American Big Pharma Gilead, thanks to USAID projects.

Now, thanks to the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) report filed UNODA in 2016, we analyze the 28 laboratories of the United States that in 2015 were funded and controlled by Pentagon, NIAID and CDC (Center for the prevention and control of diseases) then directed by Tom Frieden, former WHO official in India, who left the CDC in 2017 to found his NGO “Resolve to Save Lives” in New York.

The NGO of doctor Frieden is aimed at preventing cardiovascular diseases and epidemics: it was funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and the inevitable Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in a striking intertwining of big media, social networks and strong vaccine promoters with political imprint Dem.

As many as 20 of those research centers in 2015 had a team specializing in molecular biology capable of conducting studies on viruses and prions, on simulants (biochemical replicas of agents without pathogenic virulence) and could count on an army of 149 engineers capable of any bacteriological manipulation. Obviously that’s not enough to prove that any of those scientists really put their hand into building CoVid-19.

What has been done and why only Dr. Fauci and President Obama can say because in the 164-page report only the research published in the last 12 months is published. But those of some laboratories managed directly by the Pentagon or by the Homeland Security Department have been considered “top secret” and therefore not even reported to the UN.

This assumes disturbing relevance if one remembers that in the year to which this report refers the attorney Avril Haines was deputy advisor of Homeland Security of the White House; previously she had been adviser of Joe Biden in the Democrats in Congres and then appointed by Obama as deputy director of the CIA, who became an expert in bio-weapons for the NTI (a private American research institute in the Dem area).

After the change of administration, the lawyer Haines made a career as a researcher at Columbia University and at the John Hopkins Health & Security Center (at the Bloomberg School in Baltimore) where in October 2019 she was the protagonist of the Event 201 exercise on the CoronaVirus pandemic funded by Bill Gates who had the prophetic power to predict it as early as 2015. While Haines predicted it in a public conference in Camden in 2018, when he also preached the need for “world order” to prevent pandemics from respiratory infections …


We have summarized the 2016 BWC report in a 36-page dossier (available in pdf at the bottom of the page, the original 164-page BWC available on request by email at only by accepting the subscription to the Gospa News Newsletter) and therefore in this article we will analyze only the most strategic and interesting laboratories, obviously starting from Fort Detrick, Maryland, perhaps the most imposing structure on bacteriological weapons in the world with 4 different research centers.

Fort Detrick’s National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) managed by Battelle

Two of them are managed by Battelle National Biodefense Institute LLC, a private contractor from Columbus (Ohio) who has been targeted by the media for the mysterious and suspicious experiments conducted together with the CIA in the unapproachable fortress of the Lugar Center in Georgia, in the former Soviet Union , after the Rose Revolution funded by another Dem donor, George Soros.

At the Lugar Center, as highlighted in Wuhangate 5, the pharmaceutical corporation Gilead also worked with an antiviral immunization project against hepatitis C which had dramatic consequences causing the death of 79 human guinea pigs and arousing accusations of experimentation with biological weapons by the Russia.

Battelle is now in fact an appendix of the Homeland Security Department which was only partially penalized by the moratorium of 2014 with which the Obama administration expressed its intention to put a stop to the “Dual Use” experiments aimed at Function Gain (GOF) or the laboratory enhancement of bacteriological pathogens similar to the uranium enrichment principle for nuclear weapons.

Obama stopped funding for such research with the 2014 moratorium but did not ban it. This allowed the National Institute of Health to grant the exemption to the scientists of Chapel Hill and Wuhan to complete the construction of the extremely dangerous chimeric supervirus SHC014-MA15. Very similar to CoVid-19 of the current epidemic but not identical…

Therefore there is no evidence that all GOF studies in the top-secret laboratories of the Pentagon which generically finance the government agencies DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), operating mainly in the USA, and DTRA (Defense Threat Reduction Agency), responsible for the missions in the 25 research centers abroad, have really been interrupted. While, as we have discovered, there is the certainty that at least 5 dangerous “dual-use” searches have continued precisely in relation to CoronaVirus …

Trump in 2017 interrupted this moratorium of dubious efficacy thus allowing the resumption of GOF biological experiments also for military purposes but, otherwse, in November 2019 he then put an end to USAID’s PREDICT 2 project by canceling a $ 200 million loan with the vibrating protests from the EcoHealthAlliance organization in New York, the private partner of the plan supported by big pharma with long judicial precedents such as Johnson & Johnson and by American, Chinese and even Saudi universities, as reported in the Wuhangate 1 report.

Battelle saw his contract with the White House drop from $ 344 million in the plan (2009-2016) to $ 17.3 million (2015-2026) in 2015 but he maintained the management of the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) in Fort Detrick, funded by three strategic departments such as Defense, Homeland Security and Justice which in 2015 operated in an area of ​​a total of 4826 m2 of BSL 3 and 4 laboratories, but also in those of the Integrated Research Facility (IRF) Frederick (2183 m2) , controlled by NIAID. In that year, he received a total of $ 40 million in funds.

BSL 4 Hot laboratory in the IRF managed by Battelle and NIAID in Fort Detrick

«Scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick, Frederick, Maryland, coordinate and facilitate preclinical research on infectious diseases to develop medical countermeasures for high-consequence pathogens. This facility is unique in that it is the only maximum containment laboratory in the world where conventional and molecular medical imaging equipments are incorporated into the design of the facility. This capability provides investigators with unique tools to dissect disease pathogenesis, evaluate the ability of animal models to recapitulate human disease, and test candidate countermeasures. Importantly, advanced molecular imaging has the potential to provide alternative endpoints to lethality».

This is reported by an official research published in 2014 by the research center run by Battelle which specifies that this technique allows me to use fewer animal guinea pigs. Among the experiments mentioned, there is one conducted on macaques precisely in relation to a strain of CoronaVirus.

Lungs of macaques infected by CoronaVirus Mers at IRF Frederick

«Through MI, IRF scientists are already studying the development of consolidations in the lungs of non-human primates infected with Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV). With MI, scientists are able to trace the development and quantification of lung lesions – reads the conclusion – The data generated by these experiments will not only advance our understanding of emerging diseases, but will allow the development of countermeasures and clinical care paradigms previously considered impossible»

Judging by the number of CoVid-19 deaths in the US, it can be said with certainty that the sacrifice of those poor laboratory monkeys has served no purpose…


But in the NBACC study. the other Battelle laboratory, entitled “Engineering a global response to infectious diseases” argues that “going beyond the detection of disease outbreaks, we want to be able to assess and predict disease risks” and that “more initiatives are underway that will throw bases and will strengthen the science at the root “through” the approaches to new engineering that will achieve the greatest objectives for the management of an infectious disease “.

Although scientists reiterate in their studies the duty of an analysis in “benefit / risk” relationships, the border remains so questionable that for the “advantage” of humanity – or Bill Gates’ vaccine philanthropy – everything seems to be granted …

Integrated Research Facility IRF Frederick in Fort Detrick

At least six studies have been developed at the IRF Frederick in Fort Detrick on the various known strains of CoronaVirus. One of the most relevant is that of a MERS-CoV vaccine which scientists from various American laboratories have worked on, many of them of Chinese nationality…

In fact, the head of research Lingshu Wang of the Vaccine Research Center has joined the IRF doctor Joshua Johnson, and other colleagues of the NIAID-NIH laboratories of Bethesda (MD), of the private facilities M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (same location), of the big pharma Sanofi-Aventis of Cambridge (Massachusetts), and of the University Medical Center of Nashville (Tennessee).

Kayvon Modjarrad of Bethesda’s VRC also appears among the researchers, who is also part of the military HIV Research Program of the “phantom” Walter Reed Army Institute of Research of Silver Spring, not mentioned in the 2015 BWC report, although he has also carried out numerous researches on the CoronaVirus as well as obviously on the ‘HIV.

Modjarrad is the author of a research on Function Gain, from which derives the risk of “Dual Use” vaccine-weapon, which proves the dubious value of the Obama moratorium of October 17, 2014, by-passed to carry out the aforementioned experiments of North Carolina University and the Wuhan Institute of Virology on the supervirus that we told about extensively in the Bio-Weapon 9 report.

In the study conducted with Andy Kilianski of the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) of Aberdeen Proving Ground (MD) and Jennifer B. Nuzzo of the Medical Center for Health Security of Pittsburgh University in Baltimore, he makes a revelation that in the face of today’s pandemic assumes a bewildering relevance.

«On 15 and 16 December 2014, the National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council, and Institute of Medicine convened experts from the disciplines of infectious diseases, research ethics, and science policy to discuss the potential risks and benefits of GOF research in a public forum to help inform the federal government on how best to proceed in regulating GOF research on potentially dangerous biological agents [19]. Shortly after the meeting, the NIH notified a subset of researchers affected by the research pause that their work could resume [20]. Specifically, 5 research projects on MERS-CoV animal model development and 2 on HPAI were cleared to continue». (read more)

حقيقة وأصل رئيس سلطة فلسطين … المدعو محمود عباس

الكثير من الناس استنكروا على محمود عباس رئيس سلطة فلسطين (سلطة = بفتح السين واللام لأنها حقيقةً أشبه بصحن سلطة جمع بين الخونة والمرتزقة وعديمي الدين والضمير الذين وحدهم الدولار الأمريكي بحمد الله – لو أنزلت عليهم وحي الله ما ألفت بين قلوبهم ولكن الدولار الأمريكي ألف بينهم – فحمداً لله) … ذهابه للتعزية بفطيسة رئيس أحفاد القردة والخنازير الذي هو الآن إن شاء الله يتحمر في جهنم مع مواليه من رفقاء الشيطان، فرأيت أن هذا هو الوقت المناسب لنشر ما توصلت إليه من أبحاث حول حقيقة هذا الرجل وأسباب انتماءه الشديد جداً إلى كيان أحفاد القردة والخنازير .. وإليكم اخوتي وأخواتي الأعزاء خلاصة ما توصلت له من أبحاث دام عدة أيام .. 

الرئيس البهائي محمود ميرزا عباس هو عميل إسرائيلي من اًصل إيراني

تؤكد كافة الدراسات والتحقيقات التي قام بها العديد من الباحثين أن هذا المخلوق المدعوا بمحمود عباس والملقب بأبي مازن ما يخفى على كثير من الناس بما يتعلق بحقيقة هذه الشخصية السياسية البارزة يتردد اسمها مرارا في وسائل الاعلام والتي تم فرضها على المجتمع الفلسطيني ألا و هي شخصية هذا المخلوق الذي بطريقةٍ أو بأخرى تم تنصيبه رئيساً لمنظمة فلسطينية تتدعي أنها تمثل الشعب الفلسطيني وتدافع عن حقوقه في تحرير واستعادة مقدسات الإسلام واراضي الشعب المغتصبة من كيان أحفاد القردة والخنازير.

فما هو تاريخ وتوجهات هذا المتنصب رئيساً لأعقد قضايا الأرض …

التحقيقات كلها تجمع على أن هذا المتنصب رئيساً لهذه المنظمة هو من أصل إيراني ويتبع المعتقد البهائي وأن إسمه الأصلي هو: محمود رضا عباس ميرزا "أبومازن" - من عائلة ذات أصول إيرانية من طائفة البهائيين. اليكم المقدمة والدلائل كما أثبتها الباحثون مراراً وتكراراً ...

ما هي البهائية :

Cartoon – Worried about Arab Spring coming to #Palestine, #Israel ...

البهائية هي فرقة خارجة عن الاسلام ، وهي ربيبة الصهيونية العالمية ، وصنع الماسونية ، وكلهم ياخذون من “معين” واحد هو الكفر ومحاربة الإسلام وخدمة اليهود، ويصبون في “ماعون” واحد ينضح بالفساد العقائدي وترويج الضلال.وتدعو البهائية التي يعتنقها محمود ميرزا عباس “أبومازن” إلى نسخ الإسلام ورفض شريعته، وتنكر البعث والحشر والجنة والنار، وتحرم حجاب المرأة المسلمة، وتحلل المتعة وشيوعية النساء والأموال, كما ينكرون أن سيدنا محمداً عليه الصلاة و السلام هو خاتم النبيين، ويبطلون الحج إلى مكة، ويستبدلون به الحج إلى مدينة حيفا الفلسطينية، حيث دفن “بهاء الله” – وفيها أيضاً حدائق البهائيين  حيث يقع المركز البهائي العالمي .و صلاة البهائية تسع ركعات على ثلاث مرات, ووضوؤهم بماء الورد ولا صلاة جماعة عندهم ، كما يحرمون الجهاد أو حمل السلاح ضد الأعداء، و أيد البهائيون تجمع اليهود في فلسطين واحتلالهم لأرضها..

جذور البهائية:

البهائية هي الأمتداد الطبيعي للبابية، و التي نبعت بذورها من المذهب الشيعي في إيران عام 1260هـ 1844م ، و ذلك برعاية الاستعمار الروسي واليهودية العالمية بهدف إفساد العقيدة الإسلامية وتفكيك وحدة المسلمين وصرفهم عن قضاياهم الأساسية، إذ كشفت أبحاث مؤتمر البهائية الموسع الذي عقدوه في القدس المحتلة عام 1968م عن الرباط الوثيق بين الصهيونية والبهائية، وأعلن في الحفل الختامي لذلك المؤتمر “أن الحركتين اليهودية والبهائية متممتان لبعضهما البعض وتجتمعان في أكثر النقاط”.

أسرة محمود و اصله :

محمود ميرزا عباس “ابومازن” من اسرة بهائية حتى النخاع ، غادرت اسرته إيران مع اضطهاد الحكومة الإيرانية للبهائيين ، ولجده عباس افندي منزلة كبيرة في دين البهائية .جده عباس الأول :يعتبر عباس أفندي “الاول” جد محمود الملقب بـ”عبد البهاء” من اهم الشخصيات في تاريخ النحلة البهائية ، بل هو اخص تلامذة ومريدي الميرزا علي محمد الشيرازي الملقب “بهاء الله “، (1235ـ 1266هـ) الموافق (1819 ـ 1850م) .وحين حكم على البهاء بالإعدام ونفِّذ الحكم عام 1266ه، بعد أن راج مذهبه وادعى حلول الألوهية في شخصه حلولاً مادياً وجسدياً فر عباس افندي خارج ايران بمساعدة من الحكومة البريطانية ، فزار سويسرا وحضر مؤتمرات الصهاينة ومنها مؤتمر بال عام 1911م والقى عباس افندي عصا التسيار في فلسطين ، و استقر في حيفا، حاملاً معه العقيدة البهائية ، ليتحمل وزر ادخال تلك العقيدة الفاسدة إلى تلك البلاد الطاهرة.و قد عمل عباس افندي منذ حلوله في فلسطين على نشر البهائية ، و على محاولة استقطاب عملاء للانجليز ، و تكوين طابور خامس وسط العرب لتأييد العصابات الصهيونية، كما استقبل الجنرال الإنجليزي (اللنبي) بترحاب كبير عندما قدم إلى فلسطين المحتلة، وقد كرمته بريطانيا بمنحه لقب “سير” وأوسمة رفيعة أخرى. وتوفي بحيفا حيث يقع معبدهم تحت رعاية وحماية الكيان الصهيوني.

:نشأة محمود رضا عباس ميرزا وظهوره ساحة فلسطين السياسية 

استقرت عائلة محمود رضا عباس ميرزا في صفد التي ولد فيها في 26 مارس 1935 وهاجر منها مع عائلته بعد نكبة فلسطين في عام 1948 ليستقروا في دمشق ويكمل دراسته في جامعتها وبعدها غادر إلى قطر للعمل مديرا لشؤون الأفراد في ديوان الخدمة المدنية.

وبالرغم من بعض الإدعاءات التي تقول إن أبو مازن كان شارك في العمل السياسي الفلسطيني في قطر وتنظيم مجموعة من المقيمين الفلسطينيين هناك، فإن أيا من المصادر الفلسطينية لم يشر أبدا إلى مثل هذا الارتباط مشيرين إلى أنه حتى لم يشارك في المجلس الوطني الفلسطيني الأول عام 1964 الذي ضم ممثلين عن الجاليات الفلسطينية في كافة الأقطار العربية.

هناك من يقول ويؤكد أن محمود رضا عباس ميرزا جمع ثروته في قطر عن طريق أخذ نسبة من مرتب كل شخص فلسطيني كان يلجأ إلى محمود رضا عباس ميرزا لإعانته في الحصول على وظيفة في قطر وجعل نفسه مرجع لكل فلسطيني كان يقيم في قطر حيث كان يستغل تنصيب نفسه كمرجع لخلق مشاكل لهؤلاء الفلسطينيين ليلتجئوا إليه طلباً للعون في حل قضاياهم ومشاكلهم غير منتبهين أنه هو من يخلق لهم هذه المشاكل حتى يطلبوا عونه ويفرض عليهم دفع رسوم بدل أتعاب إلخ .. 

يقول أمين سر اللجنة المركزية لحركة فتح فاروق قدومي في حوار معه إن أول من قدم محمود عباس إليهم هو ياسر عرفات بعد معركة الكرامة. ويشير القدومي إلى أن من أبرز أعضاء مجموعة قطر التي شكلت إلى جانب مجموعات أخرى حركة فتح هم كمال عدوان وأبو يوسف النجار وعبد الفتاح عيسى حمود, والثلاثة كانوا حتى استشهادهم أعضاء في اللجنة المركزية لحركة فتح.

آلاف الشباب الفلسطيني والعربي إلتحاقوا بمنظمات المقاومة الفلسطينية وخاصة فتح بعد معركة الكرامة، أسفر بعد نحو أسبوعين عن تعيين ياسر عرفات ناطقا رسميا باسم الحركة باتفاق بينه وبين صلاح خلف (أبو إياد) بدون علم وبدون أي تنسيق مع اللجنة المركزية حيث قام أبو إياد بإصدار بيان بهذا الشأن لوسائل الإعلام التي كانت تبحث عمن تتحدث معه، يفيد بأنه تم تعيين ياسر عرفات (أبو عمار) ناطقا رسميا باسم فتح وبذلك تم فرض عرفات زعيما بقوة الإعلام وفيما بعد تدخل المال ليعزز زعامته.

وقد تسبب التركيب الفكري المختلط لقيادة فتح وخاصة لجنتها المركزية آنذاك إلى استقطاب تنظيمي مختلط، فكل عضو في اللجنة المركزية كان يتم استقطابه للتنظيم ممن كان يعتقد أنه سيشكل دعما لها من خلال معارفه وشبكة علاقاته السياسية والشخصية لذلك تداخلت في تنظيم فتح ومستوياتها القيادية شخصيات  ذوو الميول والانتماءات القومية والتقدمية والاتجاهات الوطنية العامة ومن الذين لا يعرف لهم انتماء سياسي وفكري واضح وكان محمود عباس واحدا من هؤلاء الذين يتميزون بغموض الانتماء. منظمة التحرير الفلسطينية تأسست قواعدها على العلمانية البحتة ولا علاقه لها بالدين وهذا واضح جلياً للعيان من خلال الشخصيات القيادية للمنظمة والنهج المتبع منذ التأسيس حتى الأن … 

استخدم عرفات عضويته في اللجنة المركزية لحركة فتح وعدم انتمائه لأي من الكتل الأيديولوجية في فتح (بعثيون وقوميون وإسلاميون -إخوان مسلمون وتحريريون- ويساريون) في تنسيب محمود عباس وفرضه عضوا في اللجنة المركزية فور التحاقه استنادا إلى ما كان سائدا في الوضع التنظيمي حيث كان يقتصر على انتخاب ثلاثة أعضاء فقط ثم يستكمل هؤلاء بقية أعضاء اللجنة المركزية بصورة تدريجية حيث يتم اختيار العضو الرابع ثم يختار الأربعة العضو الخامس وهكذا. ومنذ ذلك اليوم بدا أبو مازن مشواره السياسي من فكرة “اختراق المجتمع الصهيوني” من أجل تصفيته إلى عقد اتفاقيات أوسلو والتنصل من المقاومة المسلحة التي يقول أبو اللطف أن أبو مازن لم يكن أبدا طرفا فيها. 

وبصفته عضوا في اللجنة المركزية لفتح فقد دخل في عضوية المجلس الوطني الفلسطيني لأول مرة في عام 1968 على قائمة فتح ولا يزال.

بقي أبو مازن داخل فتح ملتصقا بعرفات حيث لم يعرف بسبب غموض انتمائه أن له قواعد داخل التنظيم، فهو لم يكن عضوا في القيادة العامة لقوات العاصفة ولا مسؤولا عسكريا في الميليشيا، ولا يقوم بزيارات منتظمة إلى القواعد وليس لديه جهاز مؤثر مثل غيره. وبعد انسحاب المقاومة من الأردن في عام 1971 عقب سبتمبر, عقد المؤتمر العام الثالث للحركة في أوكتوبر 1971 في سوريا في وضع كان ينذر بتمرد على القيادة، غير أن عرفات أخضع المؤتمر بكامله للابتزاز مشترطا التصويت على اللجنة المركزية السابقة ككل مع إحلال عضوين جديدين خلفا للشهيدين وليد نمر (أبو علي إياد) وممدوح صيدم (أبو صبري) وبذلك احتفظ محمود عباس بعضوية اللجنة المركزية.

عباس وأوسلو:

سطع نجم محمود عباس ابومازن في سماء السياسة الدولية يوم أطلق عليه لقب “مهندس” اتفاقية أوسلو التي تم توقيعها بين ياسر عرفات وإسحاق رابين وتم بمقتضاها الاعتراف بالكيان الصهيوني، والتنازل له طواعية عن 80% من الأرض الفلسطينية المباركة، مقابل سلطة حكم ذاتي محدود على أشلاء متناثرة من فلسطين في الضفة الغربية وقطاع غزة، والتي سرعان ما قضى عليها شارون.؟؟؟؟

توضيح: كان محمود عباس قد انكر بهائيته قبل توليه لرئاسة السلطة الفلسطينية بشهر في عمان، وتهجم على البهائية مؤكدا انه مسلم سني، حين سألته احدى الصحفيات عن بهائيته في مؤتمر صحفي عقده في عمان، واتهم وقتها الموساد الاسرائيلي بأنه يقف وراء هذه الشائعات ، إلاَّ أن ناشطين فلسطينيين اثبتوا ان محمود ميرزا عباس مولودٌ في مدينة صفد الفلسطينية عام 1939، لأب بهائي ايراني الاصل وام فلسطينية ،و تم تسجيله كلاجئ في وكالة الغوث بعد نكبة 1948، وقد رفض ابناء مدينة صفد الفلسطينية الاعتراف به وبانتمائه للمدينة، واكدوا انه غريب عن مدينتهم ولا يمت لأهلها بأي صلة .

بعض الأدلة :

1. ـ يقول عنه الكاتب اليساري (؟؟؟؟) الفلسطيني عبدالقادر ياسين: “هو البهائي عباس ميرزا.. اسمه الأصلي محمود ميرزاعباس، وعائلته إيرانية الأصل، غادرت إيران مع اضطهاد الحكومة الإيرانية للبهائيين” (جريدة الأسبوع المصرية 13-1-2000م).

2. ـ الرجل موضع شكوك في ديانته ، و علاقاته بالصهيونية العالمية ، كما يتخذ مواقفاً انقلابية متطرفة بالنسبة لمواقفه السياسية على ثوابت الأمة , كما أنه موضع ثقة القيادات الصهيونية والأمريكية على اختلاف مشاربها وتنوعاتها حتى لدى صقور ليكود ومتطرفيه .

3. ـ اسم الرجل ميرزا يدل بيقين على أصله الايراني .ـ بل حتى ملامح الرجل و بالأخص كثافة حواجبه تنطق بذلك ، كما هو الحال مع كتساف اليهودي) .

4. ـ قناة الجزيرة عرضت تقريرا لها عن عباس بتاريخ 6/11/2004م (برنامج الملف الأسبوعي) لفتت فيه إلى أن “جذوره البهائية” والشائعات حولها تقلل من فرص خلافته لعرفات .

5. ـ كما أن المراسل السياسي لصحيفة هآرتس العبرية قد خلص في مقال له بتاريخ 10/6/2003م إلى أن “أبا مازن المعتدل لا يستطيع حتى الوصول إلى مكانة ياسر عرفات باعتبارها مغلقة أمامه – وهذا “بسبب أصوله البهائية، ولأن احتمالية وصول بهائي إلى زعامة الفلسطينيين تشبه احتمالية وصول سامري إلى منصب رئيس إسرائيل”.مشيرا إلى أن اسم “عباس” الذي يعتبر بالصدفة أحد أسماء مؤسس الديانة البهائية ـ على حد قوله ـ لم يمنع أبا مازن من الوصول إلى رئاسة الحكومة. ـ ولم يقتصر الأمر على فتح أبواب البيت الأبيض – التي أغلقت في وجه عرفات – أمامه وإنما قام بوش بتكريس جزء من وقته الثمين !! لعقد لقاء مع سلام فياض وزير المالية الفلسطيني، وبدلا من أن يأتي محمود عباس إلى قمة العالم في واشنطن جاء زعيم العالم الديموقراطي؟؟ إلى الشرق الأوسط حتى يجري معه ومع شارون لقاء قمة ثلاثي.” .

6. ـ ……………..عمان – احتفل ابناء الطائفة البهائية في الاردن بفوز محمود عباس ابي مازن برئاسة السلطة الفلسطينية. وقال عدد من ابناء الطائفة ان وجود ابيمازن على رأس السلطة الفلسطينية من شأنه ان ينعكس ايجابيا على وضع ابناء الطائفة في الاردن وغيره من الدول، ويعد دعما معنويا وسياسيا قويا لابناء الطائفة في كل مكان. واشار هؤلاء انهم بعثوا برسالة تهنئة للرئيس محمود ميرزاعباس حال الاعلان عن فوزه في الانتخابات، مؤكدين انهم شكلوا وفدا من وجهاء الطائفة في الاردن لزيارة رام الله وتقديم التهاني بشكل مباشر للرئيس محمود ميرزاعباس. ـ كما يوجد في الاردن مئات من المواطنين الذين يعتنقون مذهب الطائفة البهائية، ويعيشون في منطقة العدسية في منطقة الاغوار الاردنية.

7. ـ و في سياق متصل يعرف الفلسطينيون جيدا ان محمود ميرزاعباس هو بهائي من اصل ايراني، وقد اصبح فلسطينيا بسبب ظروف النكبة والهجرة الجماعية للمواطنين عام 1948.8 ـ بعد عودة عباس للاراضي الفلسطينية و بعد توقيع اتفاق اوسلو قام بزيارة المعبد البهائي في مدينة عكا الفلسطينية المحتلة، والتقى مع زعماء الطائفة، واعلن تقديم كل الخدمات لهم، وقامت ما يسمى بوزارة الاديان الاسرائيلية برعاية البهائيين وتقديم كل انواع الدعم والرعاية لهم، باعتبارهم طائفة منشقة عن الاسلام، وهم يعملون في خدمة المؤسسة الاسرائيلية. لقد اعتاد الرئيس البهائي محمود ميرزا عباس على القيام بزيارات سرية و هو متنكراً بصحبة ضباط من المخابرات الاسرائيلية الشاباك للمراقد البهائية المقدسة في عكا و حيفا بجبل الكرمل حيث يوجد ضريح مؤسس الديانة البهائية المدعو بهاء الله.

هذا هو سر العلاقة الغرامية المفضوحة بينه و بين اًسياده اليهود و هذا هو سر القبلات الحارة على خدود اًسياده اليهود الملطخة اًياديهم بدماء اًهل غزة عرين الاًسود و اًرض الشهداء. وهذه هي اسباب تمسك امريكا واليهود بابومازن.

لا تلوموا هذا المخلوق فولاءه لمن أوجده وصنع هويته .. فهو ليس إلا أحد أحفاد القردة والخنازير الذين يحكمون المسلمين ويتولون أمورهم تحت غطاء الإسلام والوطنية … ولا تنسوا أن نابليون لبس العمامة وصلى الجمعة في الأزهر … وهل يغير الثعبان جلده إلا ليلبس جلداً آخر يجعله قاتلاً أكثر من سابق عهده ؟؟؟؟. 

المتابع لمنظمة التحرير الفلسطينية منذ تأسيسها يرى بكل وضوح تقلباتها، فقد تأسست قواعدها على العلمانية البحتة ولا علاقات لها بالدين وهذا واضح جلياً للعيان من خلال الشخصيات القيادية للمنظمة والنهج المتبع منذ التأسيس حتى الأن، هي منظمة تأسست لغرض الدفاع عن المقدسات والحقوق، ثم أصبحت منظمة ارهابية، ثم تحولت إلى سياسية والآن منظمة انبطاحية مالية إقتصادية صهيونية بحتة تعمل قطعياً وحصرياً لتوطيد كيان أحفاد القردة والخنازير، وهكذا لا يجوز العجب أن يقودها شخص إيراني بهائي أو حتى يهودي صهيوني – فلا فرق أبداً ولا غرابة أبداً.

Citing Pandemic, UN Human Rights Expert Urges US to Release Migrants ‘Held for Processing’

“Alternatives to widespread immigration detention in the U.S. would also ensure that migrants are not arbitrarily detained.”

A United Nations human rights expert on Monday urged the U.S. government to stop detaining migrants who are being “held for processing” of their immigration claims in “overcrowded and unsanitary administrative centers,” citing concerns about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“It is very difficult to keep the necessary physical distance in overcrowded detention facilities,” Felipe González Morales, the U.N. special rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, said in statement. “Significantly reducing the number of detained migrants by releasing them into alternative settings can easily solve this.”

“None of those migrants are detained for criminal offenses, but are simply awaiting decisions on their immigration claims,” he added. “The authorities should assess the capacity of readily available alternatives measures in the country and elaborate a set of criteria to identify those in administrative detention that could be immediately released to alternative placements.”

Alternatives to detention facilities—poor conditions of which were often decried by detainees and immigration rights advocates long before the coronavirus outbreak—include providing community-based accommodations and care to migrants.

Alluding to the U.S. government’s long track record—particularly under President Donald Trump—of ignoring the human rights of migrants, González Morales said that “alternatives to widespread immigration detention in the U.S. would also ensure that migrants are not arbitrarily detained.”

The Monday statement from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights noted that U.N. human rights experts have “received repeated reports of unsanitary conditions and lack of proper healthcare” at the Tacoma Northwest Processing Center in Washington state.

One local newspaper editorial warned earlier this month that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility—run by the private, for-profit company the GEO Group—could be “a ticking time bomb, a potential for a ‘coronavirus catastrophe.'”

González Morales said that rights experts were told “there is a lack of protective measures for detainees, that it is impossible to keep the recommended physical distance, and that new arrivals are not being put into isolation for medical observations,” which “raises grave concerns that the coronavirus could spread in the center.”

The special rapporteur has joined with five other U.N. experts in pressuring the U.S. government and the GEO Group to boost efforts to prevent the spread of the virus at the center, including by ensuring that all detainees have access to adequate healthcare and water and sanitation facilities.

Among the group was Nils Melzer, U.N. special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, who highlighted González Morales’ comments on Twitter Monday:

Nils Melzer@NilsMelzer

«It is very difficult to keep the necessary physical distance in overcrowded detention facilities. Significantly reducing the number of detained #migrants by releasing them into alternative settings can easily solve this.» #COVID19 #HumanRights …
UN Special Procedures@UN_SPExperts·Apr 27The US Government must urgently use readily available alternatives to detention for #migrants held in overcrowded and unsanitary administrative centres to counter the risk of a #COVID19 outbreak – @UNSR_Migration

The new pressure from González Morales and his colleagues add to the mounting criticism of the Trump administration’s immigration policies as well as the failures of federal, state, and local governments to protect people—especially those at high risk of dying from a COVID-19 infection—in all types of detention facilities, including jails and prisons.

An early April report from Amnesty International declared that “detaining anyone solely for migration-related reasons during a global pandemic is cruel, reckless, and deadly.”

The Trump administration has also come under fire for exploiting the pandemic to push through controversial immigration policies that the president and top officials have sought from the beginning.

Rep. Ilhan Omar@Ilhan

The president and Stephen Miller are exploiting a global pandemic to ban LEGAL immigration.

This xenophobic policy is their attempt to change the fabric of America and advance their anti-immigrant agenda.

Not on our watch. …

The Washington Post@washingtonpost

Stephen Miller has a long-term vision for Trump’s “temporary” immigration order, according to a recording obtained by The Post

As Vox reported Monday:

Amid the pandemic, the Trump administration has closed the U.S.-Mexico border, implemented an expulsion order to swiftly turn away migrants at the border, and postponed all immigration court hearings for migrants who are waiting in Mexico for a decision on their asylum applications in the U.S. Those measures, coupled with the restrictions on asylum-seekers that were already in place, have brought the asylum system to a virtual standstill.

“We’re worried about the rapid, systematic expulsions of persons including asylum-seekers from the U.S.,” Sibylla Brodzinsky, a spokesperson for the U.N. high commissioner for refugees (UNCHR), told Vox. “Obviously, a pandemic of this nature warrants extraordinary measures at borders, but the expulsion of asylum-seekers, which basically results in refoulement, shouldn’t be among those measures.”

Human rights advocates—including the United Nations’ top expert on the rights of migrants—have implored the Trump administration in recent weeks to release immigrants who are detained or are being “held for processing” in order to prevent a coronavirus outbreak in the nation’s immigrant detention facilities.

Tens of millions of undocumented immigrants also risk being excluded from testing and treatment for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, because relief spending on testing passed by Congress is only to be used for people who are eligible for Medicaid.

Sanders has been a strong proponent of passing a robust coronavirus relief package which would expand significantly on the one-time $1,200 payment that’s being sent to some Americans—calling for monthly payments that would be sent to everyone in the U.S. regardless of immigration status. 

“We must provide direct, recurring, monthly payments to every person in the country, regardless of income, tax filing, or immigration status,” said Sanders earlier this month. “That means reaching every person in the United States, including the undocumented, the homeless, the unbanked, and young adults excluded from the CARES ACT.”

Coronavirus ‘Effectively Eliminated’ in New Zealand Following Comprehensive Approach of Jacinda Ardern’s Government

The country boosted healthcare spending to allow for contact tracing and enforced a nationwide lockdown in late March.

Five weeks after launching an aggressive nationwide lockdown to combat the coronavirus pandemic—coupled with one of the most robust economic relief packages of any country—New Zealand’s government on Monday announced that the new coronavirus is currently “eliminated” in the nation.

The country’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Monday that while cases are not at zero, new cases have been in the single digits for the past several days—an “incredible” statistic, said Ardern, as other countries face thousands of new cases per day. 

“We have done what very few countries have been able to do,” Ardern said last week as the country was preparing to move from a Level 4 restrictions to Level 3, allowing some businesses to reopen. “We have stopped a wave of devastation.”

One new case was reported Monday, as well as four “probable cases” and one new death. 

 “We’ve achieved our goal of elimination… That never meant zero but it does mean we know where our cases are coming from,” Director General of Health Ashley Bloomfield said.

As the country reduces restrictions to Level 3, businesses that reopen will be required to maintain physical distancing rules. Schools will reopen with limited capacity, and workers will still be encouraged to work from home if they are able to. Events such as weddings and funerals will only be able to take place with up to 10 people in attendance, and public buildings such as museums, libraries, and gyms will remain shuttered for the time being. 

New Zealand has confirmed a total of 1,469 cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, since the first case there was detected on February 28.

In New Zealand, home to 4.8 million, the disease has infected about 30 in every 100,000 people and has killed 19 people—fewer than one in every 100,000 people.

The numbers in the island nation contrast sharply with those in the U.S., where nearly one million people have been sickened—nearly 300 in every 100,000—and more than 50,000 people have died. 

Ardern has been credited with enforcing a strict lockdown even before the disease had claimed any lives in New Zealand. Two weeks after the first case was reported, the prime minister ordered anyone entering the country to self-quarantine for 14 days. Most businesses shut down on March 23, when there were 102 cases and no deaths, and the country began enforcing Level 4 restrictons—forbidding people to leave home except for outdoor exercise nearby—on March 25. 

Ardern’s extreme measures were in line with the recommendations of top public health officials, including U.S. National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, who said last month that the measures most effective at slowing the outbreak would likely be seen as “too drastic” by many.

New Zealand has also been testing the public at one of the highest rates in the world, Ardern said Monday, administering nearly 124,000 tests in recent weeks with the capacity to complete 8,000 tests per day. The U.S. has increased its testing capacity in the past month, but public health experts say the severe lag in confronting the pandemic in the U.S. after the first case was reported there in January has made the disease difficult to contain. 

On social media, observers noted the stark contrast between the two countries’ approaches, with government watchdog Public Citizen saying the United States’ response has been marked by the “unending incompetence” of the Trump administration.

New Zealand paired its orders for the country to stay at home for five weeks with a major relief package amounting to about 4% of the country’s GDP—a far more significant spending plan than other wealthy countries. 

The government covered wages for all New Zealanders who had to self-isolate but couldn’t work from home or were caring for sick family members. Businesses were also offered subsidies to continue paying employees, and the government doubled its healthcare spending.

Public health agencies were given resources for contact-tracing to determine who ill people could have potentially spread the disease to, which hospitals received support to increase intensive care units. 

“This package is one of the largest in the world on a per capita basis,” Grant Robertson, New Zealand’s finance minister, said in March as the package was announced.

Meanwhile in the U.S., President Donald Trump has largely left it up to states to determine how to approach lockdowns, and several states have begun reopening their economies—even though the testing rate in the U.S. is lower than New Zealand’s and thousands of new cases are being reported per day.

“The earlier and more decisively governments acted, the sooner they can responsibly ease their lockdowns,” columnist George Monbiot tweeted. “Unlike New Zealand’s and South Korea’s, our government dithered and delayed. As a result, we’re now in a terrible mess.”

Nobel Economist Joseph Stiglitz Warns US Barreling Toward Second ‘Great Depression’ Thanks to Trump-GOP Failed Covid-19 Response

“If you leave it to Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell we will have a Great Depression. If we had the right policy structure in place we could avoid it easily.”

Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz on Wednesday offered a scathing assessment of President Donald Trump’s response to the deadly Covid-19 pandemic and warned that the U.S. economy could rapidly descend into a second Great Depression without sweeping and urgent legislative action from Congress.

“It is like a third world country,” Stiglitz said in an interview with The Guardian, pointing to the number of people in the U.S. who have been forced to rely on food banks to survive amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

“We were unprepared but, even given the degree of unpreparedness, Trump’s decision to make this about politics rather than about science has meant we have responded far more poorly.”
—Joseph Stiglitz, Columbia University

Stiglitz, a professor at Columbia University, said America’s existing inequities and fragmented social safety net made it far more difficult for the nation to respond quickly and effectively to the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected more than 800,000 people in the U.S.

“The inequality in the U.S. is so large,” said Stiglitz. “This disease has targeted those with the poorest health. In the advanced world, the U.S. is one of the countries with the poorest health overall and the greatest health inequality… The safety net is not adequate and is propagating the disease.”

Stiglitz warned that if Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) are allowed to continue dictating the federal government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, “we will have a Great Depression.”

“If we had the right policy structure in place we could avoid it easily,” said Stiglitz. “We were unprepared but, even given the degree of unpreparedness, Trump’s decision to make this about politics rather than about science has meant we have responded far more poorly.”

Congress has thus far passed three relief packages in response to the coronavirus crisis. An additional interim measure passed the Senate Tuesday and is expected to be approved by the House as early as Thursday.

Stiglitz was an outspoken critic of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act that Trump signed into law last month, warning the package would not be enough to stem massive job losses and stave off a recession. According to the U.S. Department of Labor latest data, 22 million Americans have filed jobless claims since the middle of March.

“So much wealth has been destroyed on people’s balance sheet,” Stiglitz said in an interview on Democratic Now! last month. “When the economy recovers, when the disease gets under control, people may be not in position to spend in the way that they were before. And so, it could help prolong the economic downturn, unless we take appropriate measures.”

U.S. Billionaire Wealth Surges as Covid-19 Pandemic Worsens

As percentage of wealth, billionaire taxes have fallen 79% since 1980

by: Chuck Collins

In early April this year, as 22 million Americans lost their jobs and the U.S. employment rate approached 15 percent, the combined wealth of America’s billionaires had increased from March 18 by $282 billion — nearly a 10 percent increase. That’s among the findings in a new report published today by the Institute for Policy Studies, "Billionaire Bonanza 2020: Wealth Windfalls, Tumbling Taxes, and Pandemic Profiteers."

In early April this year, as 22 million Americans lost their jobs and the U.S. employment rate approached 15 percent, the combined wealth of America’s billionaires had increased from March 18 by $282 billion—nearly a 10 percent increase. That’s among the findings in a new report published Thursday by the Institute for Policy Studies, “Billionaire Bonanza 2020: Wealth Windfalls, Tumbling Taxes, and Pandemic Profiteers.” (Image: Insitute for Policy Studies)

As the pandemic-fueled U.S. unemployment rate approaches 15 percent, America’s billionaire class is experiencing a wealth surge, according to a new Institute for Policy Studies report that I co-authored with Omar Ocampo and Sophia Paslaski, Billionaire Bonanza 2020.

Between March 18th and April 23th, as more than 26 million U.S. workers lost their jobs, the combined wealth of America’s billionaires increased by $308 billion, a 10.5 percent increase.  After a brief decline, the collective wealth of 614 U.S. billionaires has surpassed than their 2019 levels.

The Jeff Bezos wealth surge is unprecedented in modern financial history.  As of April 15, his fortune had increased by an estimated $25 billion since January 1, 2020. This is greater than the Gross Domestic Product of Honduras, $23.9 billion in 2018.

Between January 1, 2020 and April 10, 2020, 34 of the nation’s wealthiest 170 billionaires have seen their wealth increase by tens of millions of dollars.

Eight of these billionaires — the “pandemic profiteers” –have seen their net worth surge by over $ 1 billion.  In addition to Bezos, they

Include billionaires that have profited off of America’s urgent need for video conferencing, including Steve Ballmer of Microsoft, owner of Skype and Teams, and Eric Yaun, founder and CEO of Zoom.

The Billionaire Bonanza 2020 report looks at several longer-term trends over the last several decades, drawing from Forbes recent survey of global billionaires.

Between 1990 and 2020, U.S. billionaire wealth soared 1,130 percent in 2020 dollars, an increase more than 200 times greater than the 5.37 percent growth of U.S. median wealth over this same period.

Between 1980 and 2018, the tax obligations of America’s billionaires, measured as a percentage of their wealth, decreased a staggering 79 percent.

The billionaire share of America’s increased wealth has risen throughout the past four decades. Between 2006 and 2018, nearly 7 percent of the real increase in America’s wealth went to the country’s 400 wealthiest households.

Congress should act to ensure that the pandemic and recovery don’t further worsen the U.S. wealth divide.  As part of a program for a just recovery, we should press for:

A Bottom-up People’s Stimulus Program. Stimulus bills should be designed not to bail out large corporations, but put money in the hands of customers to stimulate “bottom up” economic activity. 

Creation of a Pandemic Profiteering Oversight Committee. Congress needs to convene an oversight commission, modeled after the Truman Commission during World War II, to both monitor the stimulus package and root out corruption and profiteering in society as a whole.

Enact an Excess Profits Tax. During the major wars of the 20th century, Congress instituted excess profits taxes to discourage speculating and profiteering around the basic needs of life. These taxes proved workable and effective.

Levy an Emergency Millionaire Surtax. Congress should signal to the wider public that the first several trillion dollars of revenue raised to help cover the nation’s recovery costs will come from the billionaires and richest 0.2 percent of taxpayers — those Americans who have seen the most enormous gains over the last several decades. Congress could levy an emergency 10 percent millionaire surtax on the top 0.2 percent, those with incomes over $2 million.

Create a Charity Stimulus. Billionaires have for years now been donating funds to donor-advised funds and private foundations, accepting tax breaks, and warehousing over $1.2 trillion in funds that ought to be distributed to charitable operations. Congress should act to mandate a timely payout of these taxpayer-subsidized charity funds to fulfill the public interest.

Shut Down the Hidden Wealth System. Congress should crack down on capital flight and wealth hiding.  As much as $21 trillion in wealth is now sitting hidden in offshore tax havens, shell companies, and trusts.  For any tax policies to be effective, Congress must shut down the international wealth hiding apparatus by using legislation, trade negotiations, and international sanctions to require greater corporate transparency, eliminate tax dodges, and provide greater resources for tax enforcement.

We should exit the pandemic and the economic chaos of these months with less inequality, not a further entrenched oligarchy.

“Come one, come all! Welcome to the sideshow on the big stage, where anything is possible if you’re willing to believe it. Whatever ails you, we’ve got what you’re looking for! Chloroquine, the untested wonder drug—and who cares if the cure is worse than the ailment (even if I once said that). Try our new lines of injectable disinfectants—or as I call them, disinjectants (see what I did there?). Or how about the newest innovation in “medicine”—yes folks, step right up and get your Bottled Light—just crack it open and pour in all of that natural energy, and watch your woes magically disappear before your eyes.”

As far as I know, this hasn’t actually been the “cold open” of any presidential press briefing, but things are approaching this level of unvarnished mania. Clearly the sense of unpredictability draws in viewers and captures headlines, even as the stakes are high with this sort of pseudoscientific riffing from the most powerful podium in the world. Even the brows of the background characters—who are often called forth to both clarify and affirm such executive ramblings—are beginning to seem perpetually furrowed. The art of the three-ring presser is on full display right now, and people can’t help but watch.

Still, feeling compelled to look at a train wreck isn’t the same as hoping to be in one. In a moment like this, where some steadying force is coveted, we have this circus instead. None of us has the capacity to address the crisis at hand by ourselves, despite an incredible resurgence of DIY activities and societal creativity under isolating conditions—and even a nod of “you got this!” from above would go a long way toward boosting morale and keeping heads level. Instead, we get this combative, self-obsessed, reckless dissemination of half-truths, no-truths, U-turns, cul-de-sacs, and other assorted hyphenated balderdash.

“The art of the three-ring presser is on full display right now, and people can’t help but watch.”

And herein lies the problem. Slippery assertions are hard to confront directly, especially when they change all the time, and doubly so when even fainthearted contradictions can be punished by extreme vitriol. In situations where “reasonable minds” might agree to disagree while maintaining a sense of decorum and respect, it can seem terrifying when unreasonable behaviors move to fore and become normalized. Unless you’re one of those people who are wired seamlessly to process gaslighting and intimidation as normal, the shock waves from regular exposure to these behaviors can be disorienting and depressing.

All of which leaves us in a worse place to navigate a crisis like this one, feeling even more isolated in the emotional doldrums of political vacuity. More than three years into this presidency, you might think we’d become habituated to these shenanigans, but somehow they keep escalating as the stakes rise. The erosion in this era of even the already-fragmented stable bases of our society—from functional institutions to acceptable activities—leaves little oversight intact, with nothing to check the balances or balance the checks. We’re experiencing an acute moment of an ongoing crisis of power and perception.

At times it feels as if this farce will end with us waking up in The Matrix and having a good laugh with the programmers of this diverting simulation. This can’t be real, like really real, can it? Alas, until proven otherwise, we have to take it as such—meaning that denial isn’t a viable option. Nor is exasperated ruminating about our fate, since these sorts of antagonistic diatribes don’t really move the needle of opinion very much, and in fact seem to harden the extant divides. What more progressive elements often fail to grasp is that the traits most disturbing to them are seen as virtues by the other side’s core base.

This doesn’t mean that we have to capitulate, retreat, or conflict; it’s easy to become resentful or dejected, but we don’t have to “become the enemy” in the process of standing up to tyranny. Indeed, if we can get to a place of having no enemies at all, staying in a mindset of compassion and solidarity instead, perhaps the effect of toxic politicking will be mitigated by refusing to take its ill-advised bait. It’s a tall order, for sure, and saccharine invocations of “better angels” only go so far, especially in a crisis. But refusing to abdicate our basic humanity can be empowering; just don’t expect us to drink the snake oil—or whatever disinfectant Trump’s selling—in the process.

Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Responds to CDC’s Preliminary Release of COVID-19 Race Data

For Immediate Release

Condemns Reopening Economy As “Reckless.”

WASHINGTON – Today, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law issued a new demand letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), calling for increased transparency and immediate action in response to COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on Black communities and other communities of color.  This letter follows the release of preliminary data by HHS. In the past week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released limited data for confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths. It has yet to provide any critical race and ethnicity data for COVID-19 tests. The release of this new data follows actions taken by the Lawyers’ Committee on April 6th when, joined by close to 400 medical professionals, the organization called on HHS to release race/ethnicity data for COVID tests, cases and outcomes.     

As of April 22, the CDC reports that there are 828,441 reported COVID-19 cases. However, the CDC only has demographic data (age, race or ethnicity) for 619,695 of these cases (74.4%). For this subset of cases with demographic data, the CDC has race data for only 35.9% of cases.  For CDC cases with race data, 33.5% of patients are Black even though only 13% of the U.S. population is Black. Additionally, the race and ethnic demographic data provided by the CDC is not disaggregated by state, making it impossible to determine whether there are states with significant racial disparities in confirmed cases.

On April 21, the CDC reported limited race and ethnic demographic data for certain jurisdictions reporting more than 100 COVID-19 deaths further underscoring the racial disparities revealed in the data for confirmed cases.  For example, in Louisiana Blacks account for 50.8% of COVID-19 deaths even though they represent 32.3% of the state’s population.  And in Michigan, Blacks account for 31% of COVID-19 deaths even though they represent 13.8 percent of the state’s population.   

“African American communities and families are being ravaged by COVID and the federal government’s response has been woefully delayed and insufficient.  Full and comprehensive racial data, including for tests is a critical weapon in the fight against this pandemic. It is indefensible at this critical stage that the federal government neither has complete racial data nor a plan for addressing the massive deficits,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.  

Clarke continued: “Aggressive calls to reopen the economy pose a direct threat to Black lives, particularly in those communities where we are seeing African Americans disproportionately impacted. It would be reckless to reopen the economy without providing adequate protection for Black workers and other vulnerable communities that may be without equitable access to testing, care and treatment. States should not put profits over people and must take action that will help save lives.”

In this new letter, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law demands that HHS:

  • Promptly release all race and ethnic demographic data for COVID-19 cases disaggregated by state. 
  • Promptly release all existing data related to COVID-19 tests for all states disaggregated by race and ethnicity. Without this data, officials and lawmakers are not properly equipped to develop targeted and tailored public health responses and strategies to address barriers to testing and the unique needs and concerns of communities of color.  
  • Going forward, prioritize ongoing release of comprehensive, complete and robust race and ethnicity data collection for all tests, cases and outcomes, in close collaboration with all HHS sub-agencies to address significant gaps in reporting.  
  • Provide concrete protocols and assistance to state public health officials to mandate the consistent collection and reporting of this data. 
  • Develop concrete action plans to address racial disparities in Black communities and other communities of color by targeting these communities to provide free access to widespread testing and healthcare; ensuring essential workers have personal protective equipment; and ensuring hospitals in these communities are adequately resourced and have the necessary equipment to care for patients.
