“We own the science,” brags UN representative at World Economic Forum

(Natural News) Is science something that everyone contributes and has access to, or is it something that is decreed from the top down by authoritarian bureaucrats? According to Melissa Fleming, the United Nations’ Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications, “we own the science” – referring to the UN.

At a recent World Economic Forum (WEF) event, Fleming declared during her talk on “Tackling Disinformation at the Sustainable Development Impact Meetings 2022,” held from Sept. 19-23, 2022, that the so-called “elites” are in charge of science, not the little people.

Fleming admitted that the UN forced a deal with tech giant Google to suppress and censor all opposing viewpoints about “science,” including those of experts who disagree with the official story about “climate change.”

“We partnered with Google,” Fleming told Adrian Monck, the managing director and head of public and social engagement at the WEF. “For example, if you Google climate change, at the top of your search, you will get all kinds of UN resources.”

“We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we Googled climate change, we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top, so we’re becoming much more proactive.”

“We own the science and we think that the world should know it, and the platform themselves also do. But again, it’s a huge challenge that I think all sectors of society need to be very active.”

Truth doesn’t need to silence other viewpoints to remain true

Both the UN and the WEF are heavily involved in various climate matters, including efforts to block out the sun with “space bubbles” in order to stop so-called “global warming.”

The WEF has also hinted at a future cyber “pandemic,” which some believe will be used to usher in Klaus Schwab’s infamous “great reset.”

The UN and the WEF used to at least try to veil their true intentions for the world, but Fleming’s latest statements at the WEF show that the globalists no longer care what the world hears or thinks.

They are coming right out into the open now to declare that they are the ones in charge. They are the ones who get to tell us what is true concerning science, and anyone who contradicts that is immediately silenced.

“If you’re in the right, there’s no need to suppress other viewpoints because the truth will win out,” one commenter wrote about how the UN and the WEF are showing their cards.

“Of course, if you’re in the wrong, you HAVE to suppress the truth in order to maintain your viewpoint.”

Joe Biden is also part of the globalist cabal, added another, quoting something Biden recently said that echoes what Fleming said at the WEF:

“What we have here is a perception problem. What we need to do is change this perspective, even if it’s not true.”

The way Biden and his cabal accomplish this is to demonize, marginalize and eventually criminalize their opponents, which we are now seeing take place on a global scale.

“Their hubris should be their downfall but a lot of people are pretty dumb,” wrote another about how idiocracy is the reason why Fleming’s statements go unaddressed and unpunished.

“Truth is never afraid of examination,” added someone else to the conversation. “Lies are always afraid of being exposed.”

“If they were right,” said another, “then they would welcome other viewpoints and discussion – but they’re not right.”

Biden admin essentially admits to sabotaging Russian pipeline, saying it represents 'tremendous opportunity'

Image: Biden admin essentially admits to sabotaging Russian pipeline, saying it represents ‘tremendous opportunity’

(Natural News) The hapless Biden regime has essentially admitted that it is responsible for sabotaging Russia’s Nordstream 1 and 2 pipelines last week.

Since the attacks last week, which were unprecedented in Europe since World War II, diplomats and leaders from around the world have been asking the question, “Whodunit?”

But as the questions (and outrage) reached a crescendo, the regime pretty much answered the question when a top official bluntly admitted that the attacks represent an “opportunity.”

During a joint press conference on Friday with his Canadian counterpart, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, lacking any self-awareness whatsoever, observed that the damage to the multibillion-dollar pipelines (which has since been repaired, by the way) was being viewed by the left-wing lunatics within Biden’s White House as a “tremendous opportunity” to reduce European reliance on Russian energy imports. Oh, and of course, less gas flowing also means less ’emissions’ in the air, which helps combat ‘climate change’ and leads to a faster transition to ‘green’ energy and electric vehicles (which few people really want).

“I think first it’s important to make clear that these pipelines – that is, Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 – were not pumping gas into Europe at this time.  Nord Stream 2 never became operational, as is well known. Nord Stream 1 has been shut down for weeks because of Russia’s weaponization of energy,” he claimed (Russia hasn’t ‘weaponized’ its energy resources but has shifted its energy policies to compensate for massive Western economic sanctions).

Brighteon.TV

Not long after, Blinken said of the sabotage, “ultimately this is also a tremendous opportunity.”

“It’s a tremendous opportunity to once and for all remove the dependence on Russian energy and thus to take away from Vladimir Putin the weaponization of energy as a means of advancing his imperial designs,” he said.

At the same time, Blinken then touted that the U.S. had become “the leading supplier of LNG (liquified natural gas) to Europe” (after President Donald Trump unleashed the American energy industry to become the powerhouse it can be). The secretary of state went on to stress that the Biden regime is assisting European leaders to “decrease demand” on Russian energy and “speed up the transition to renewables” (that will never be enough to power the continent, using the current technologies of solar and wind).

Interestingly, “in that single section of comments while speaking alongside his Canadian counterpart, Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly, Blinken had repeated the word ‘opportunity’ while highlighting the European energy crisis no less than three times,” Zero Hedge reported.

“Too bad that this tremendous opportunity for DC bureaucrats will come at the expense of everyone else, especially this coming winter,” said Aaron Mate, host of the Pushback Podcast.

According to @SecBlinken, the Nord Stream pipeline bombing “offers tremendous strategic opportunity for the years to come.” Too bad that this tremendous opportunity for DC bureaucrats will come at the expense of everyone else, especially this coming winter. pic.twitter.com/T2eacQUuBF

— Aaron Maté (@aaronjmate) October 1, 2022

How arrogant and dismissive the Biden regime has become towards a continent allegedly full of ‘allies.’

Blinken’s Canadian counterpart played her Western globalist role and blamed the sabotage on Russia. But a piece in the American Conservative brilliantly explained why that is bunk:

One could certainly see why sabotaging Nord Stream benefits the US. We didn’t want Europe to get Nord Stream in the first place, because it would make Europe dependent on Russian gas. This is perfectly reasonable, from an American point of view. However, if Washington sabotaged those pipelines in the middle of the Ukraine-Russia war, that would mean an insane escalation of the war, to sabotaging critical infrastructure.

Think about it: if Russia can’t deliver gas to Europe anyway, because the pipelines are too damaged, that makes it harder to make peace and restore energy flow to Europe. This fits Washington’s policy goals. That doesn’t mean Washington is responsible for this sabotage, but there’s a lot more reason for Washington to have blown the pipelines up than for Russia.

The Biden regime is slow-walking Americans into World War III.

Goya Foods founder, CEO warns the ‘New World Order’ is using inflation to 'enslave humanity'

Image: Goya Foods founder, CEO warns the ‘New World Order’ is using inflation to ‘enslave humanity’

(Natural News) The founder of the leading Hispanic food brand says that the Western globalist elite has unleashed an “evil” plan on billions of people in order to exert infinite control over them.

Bob Unanue, the CEO of Goya Foods, said during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that the “New World Order” cultists are using “evil” inflation to “enslave humanity.”

“At the core of inflation, and it’s out of control – especially in food –  is evil, a desire to control us,” Unanue said. “When I was a child, my parents said ‘never take candy from a stranger.’ And they’re giving out candy, incentivizing people not to work. They’re taking away our purpose, our spirit, our reason to get up every day. They’re doing it without their own candy, they’re taking our candy, and using it to incentivize us not to work. That’s very inflationary.”

Fox News noted further that inflation during the Biden regime and Democratic control of Congress continues to plague the vast majority of Americans:

Rising food prices have been one of the most visceral reminders of red-hot inflation, which has created severe financial pressures for most U.S. households. Food prices accelerated to a new four-decade high this summer, forcing Americans to cut out everyday items they can no longer afford.

According to the Labor Department, Americans are paying more at the grocery store for a number of items that have climbed considerably in price over the past year. That includes staples like eggs (38%), chicken (16.6%), milk (15.6%), potatoes (13.3%), rice (12.7%) and fresh fruits and vegetables (8.2%).

Brighteon.TV

In addition, the country is experiencing one of the worst shortages of workers in U.S. history, though thanks to the Federal Reserve’s moves to hike interest rates to slow the economy, there will be plenty of laid-off workers looking for jobs soon enough.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Unanue said that his company “never stopped working” because those jobs were deemed essential. However, he says that his company has since felt the effects of the worker shortage in a big way.

“Work is essential. It gives us our reason…each one of us is made in the likeness of God with our own identity,” he said.

Ordinary Americans have been stripped of a sense of purpose inherent in working individuals by elitists who want to “enslave us for their own greed and power,” the CEO said.

“We all have a purpose,” he said. “Now, you take that purpose away by the very few who want to own us, control us, enslave us, for their own greed and power.”

WATCH:

But again, the current worker shortage is about to be transformed into an excess of workers, as layoffs by major corporations have already begun.

“Layoffs and a decrease in demand from several large corporations, including Apple, FedEx, Meta, and Nike, are indicating that a recession may be close. Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers warned, ‘This is a moment when there should be increased anxiety,’ similar to one year before the financial crisis in 2008. At the same time, the Bank of America Merrill Lynch GFSI (Global Financial Stress Index) Market Risk indicator has jumped to its highest level since March 2020,” private intelligence firm Forward Observer said in a Monday note to subscribers.

Meanwhile, prices for nearly everything are going to continue to rise steadily as oil is set to reverse its downward slide, perhaps even sending prices back to near or over $5 a gallon, thanks to a still shaky supply chain.

“Mainstream estimates suggest a return to $100 per barrel for the Brent which would inflate gasoline prices back to around $5 per gallon on average in the US.  These projections are likely conservative,” OilPrice.com noted last week.

Gas prices in Los Angeles County hits new record high of $6.466 – nearly double the national average

Image: Gas prices in Los Angeles County hits new record high of $6.466 – nearly double the national average

(Natural News) Gas prices in Los Angeles County hit a record high of $6.466 per gallon on the morning of Monday, Oct. 3.

That price topped the previous record high of $6.462 per gallon set on June 14. The average price in the country is 62.6 cents more than a week ago, $1.202 higher than a month ago and $2.05 greater than last year. (Related: Gas prices to rise after midterms as Biden ends raid on national oil reserve.)

Figures from AAA and the Oil Price Information Service noted that the average price of gas in Los Angeles County has risen nonstop for the past 31 days. On Saturday, Oct. 1, the price rose by one cent, and on Thursday, Sept. 29, it rose by 15.3 cents – the largest recorded daily increase since Oct. 5, 2012, when the price rose by 19.2 cents.

Ironically, Monday’s increase in gas prices, which led to the new record high is actually the smallest rise since the half-cent increase on Sept. 19.

Los Angeles County’s price is the highest in the state, but its neighbors in Southern California have similarly high average gas prices.

Neighboring Orange and Ventura Counties have prices of $6.42 and $6.40 per gallon, respectively. Orange County broke its record on Saturday when prices rose to $6.429 per gallon.

All three counties have higher average prices than the statewide average of $6.38, which is just about five cents short of the record high set back in June.

California’s prices likely to keep increasing despite stable prices in most of the country

After nearly 100 days of consecutive decline, gas prices all over the country started creeping upward again in September.

Brighteon.TV

California’s price increases are part of a trend, especially on America’s West Coast. Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona have also seen large jumps in gas prices, especially in the last week of September.

The current national average is hovering between $3.79 to $3.8 per gallon. On the West Coast, drivers are paying an average of more than $.20 more for a gallon of gas than they were a month earlier.

By contrast, drivers in Texas are paying an average of $3.09 a gallon, a drop of three cents from last week and 70 cents less than the national average.

Andrew Gross, an AAA spokesperson, attributed much of the stark difference between the West Coast and the rest of the country to problems at refineries in the region affecting supply. At least six refineries in California are not producing due to maintenance.

AAA added that the price rise can also be attributed to the rising demand for gas. This week, demand has risen to 8.83 million barrels from 8.32 million barrels last week. If demand continues to rise and supplies remain tight, drivers could be paying even more by Saturday, Oct. 8.

Newsom blaming gas companies for price increases

Gov. Gavin Newsom has blamed rising costs in California on oil companies. In a video statement, he claimed that oil companies are ratcheting up prices while providing “no explanation” as to why. This runs contrary to AAA’s analysis, which has accounted for fuel production, supply and demand.

Newsom tried to point to the stark difference in gas prices between California and the rest of the country – especially Texas – of the supposedly extortionate attitude of oil companies with facilities in the state.

“The degree of diversion from national prices has never happened before,” claimed Newsom. “The fact is, [oil companies] are ripping you off.”

To offset the price increases, Newsom is asking refineries to switch early to their winter blend gas several weeks ahead of schedule. The winter blend is typically cheaper, but it produces more of the greenhouse emissions the state is trying to restrict.

Analysts say it is unclear how different prices will be after this order. If the state’s refineries comply, prices could reduce but only by around 25 cents and only after two weeks.

Some Californians could also see some relief in the form of gas rebate checks for state residents who filed their 2020 tax returns.

NY follows California's example, bans gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035

Image: NY follows California’s example, bans gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035

(Natural News) The state of New York is set to follow the example of California, banning new sales of gasoline-powered cars by 2035 in a bid to reach its “zero-emissions target.”

A Sept. 29 announcement by New York Gov. Kathy Hochul mandated the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to “take major regulatory action that will require all new passenger cars, pickup trucks and SUVs sold in New York state to be zero emissions by 2035.”

“This is a crucial regulatory step to achieving significant greenhouse gas emission reductions from the transportation sector and is complemented by new and ongoing investments … including electric vehicle infrastructure progress, zero-emission vehicle incentives and ensuring New York’s communities benefit from historic federal climate change investments.”

The effort is being supported by hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer money. According to the Daily Wire, the Empire State will spend at least $250 million in federal dollars – with about $175 million earmarked toward the construction of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.

Hochul’s order did not ban gasoline-powered vehicles in one fell swoop. Her mandate requires “an increasing percentage of new, light-duty vehicle sales to be zero-emission vehicles starting with 35 percent of sales by 2026, 67 percent of sales by 2030 and 100 percent of sales by 2035.”

“New pollutant standards for model year 2026 through model year 2034 passenger cars, light-duty truck and medium-duty vehicles with internal combustion engines would also be required.” (Related: Barcelona to ban cars over 20 years old in effort to fight air pollution.)

Brighteon.TV

New York’s move follows that of the Golden State, whose chief executive Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a similar ban. The prohibitions were weaved in as an amendment to a 2020 executive order that sought to “put the state on a path to carbon neutrality by 2045.”

The California order also applied a progressive phase-out of gasoline-powered vehicles. From 12 percent in the current year, sales of electric vehicles will be increased to 35 percent in 2026. It will then be increased to 51 percent in 2028 and 68 percent in 2030, before reaching 100 percent in 2035.

Banning gasoline-powered vehicles entirely a fool’s errand

During the Sept. 29 press conference where Hochul announced the ban on gasoline-powered cars, she claimed that EVs have been in New York for “over a hundred years.” The Democratic governor added that car makers built EVs in order for wives to “have some freedom [from] domestic servitude” while their husbands were at work.” Hochul added that EVs ‘”gave women the freedom to drive” as their gasoline-powered counterparts were difficult to operate.

Duggan Flanakin, a policy analyst with the free-market environmental advocacy group Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, denounced Hochul’s new order. He argued that getting rid of gas-powered cars in New York state shows how the urban elites have “contempt” for rural Americans.

“None of this march away from reliable, proven [internal combustion engines] makes any sense to rural Americans, those who live in hurricane-prone areas and anyone who drives cross-country,” he wrote.

“Farmers today can run their tractors off biodiesel made right down the road, and drive to distant towns for groceries and supplies in their 20-year-old pickups. Hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural and human-caused disruptive events can shut down electric power for days in large areas.”

Flanakin ultimately issued this challenge: “Imagine if 200 million internal combustion engine vehicle owners – or even two million – decided to work together to fight against the outrageous, unworkable, anti-democratic and bankrupting mandates forcing everyone into EVs most cannot afford and do not want, and to effectively exclude billions from being allowed to drive at all.”

Germans rush to buy electric heaters as natural gas shortage looms

Image: Germans rush to buy electric heaters as natural gas shortage looms

(Natural News) German officials have issued a dire warning about a possible shortage of natural gas during the winter, when demand for heating is at its highest. This has driven up sales of electric heaters as German citizens prepare their households for the coming cold.

Germany has been scrambling with rising energy costs for months, which it has blamed on Russia throttling the influx of gas supplies coming into Europe. Moscow, in turn, has blamed energy prices on Western sanctions. (Related: Energy prices in Germany soar 1,000% as companies go bankrupt.)

According to German market research company Growth From Knowledge (GFK), over 958,000 heaters have been sold in the country since the beginning of 2022. The volume of electric heater sales from January to August has jumped by 76 percent compared to the same period a year earlier.

GFK noted that the overall volume of electric heater sales for the five largest economies in Europe – Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Italy, respectively – actually decreased by 5.1 percent, strongly suggesting that the consumer habits of Germans are bucking the trend.

“Value growth from January to August 2022 was only driven by massive growth in Germany. All other markets show a negative result in value and volume for January to August 2022 compared with the same period of the previous year,” said GFK in a statement.

Too many electric heaters could overburden Germany’s power grid

The German Federal Association of Energy and Water Management (BDEW) warned that a potential consequence of too many households relying on electric heaters is that it raises the possibility of blackouts due to too much strain on the power grid.

Brighteon.TV

“Heaters can overload the power grids, for example, when many households in a district turn on their heaters at the same time on a cold winter evening,” warned BDEW.

The association noted that households will still have access to heating in the event of a gas shortage. Households, like hospitals, police stations and fire brigade facilities, have priority during gas shortages according to the law.

“We are in a very tense situation, but scaremongering is not going to help us here. Private households are among the protected customers,” said BDEW.

A spokesperson from Stadtwerke Bonn, a public energy and transport utility company, emphasized in a statement that private households and critical infrastructure “would be the last to be affected” by restrictions implemented during gas shortages.

The spokesperson added that people should buy electric blankets instead of purchasing energy-intensive electric heaters. Electric blankets require only a fraction of the power while still providing warmth.

Government trying to get households, businesses to reduce energy consumption

In a radio interview, German Vice Chancellor and Minister of Economic Affairs Robert Habeck noted that the country is in an “extremely tense situation” right now due to the energy crisis.

“If we don’t save, if households don’t reduce consumption, we still risk not having enough gas in the winter,” he said.

The Federal Network Agency, the government agency responsible for gas rationing in case of a shortage, earlier said in a statement that household consumption remains too high to be sustainable.

The agency’s president, Klaus Mueller, called for “sustained austerity efforts,” warning both households and businesses that gas consumption in the past few weeks was “well above” consumption levels in prior years, calling the figures “sobering.”

“Without significant cutbacks in the private sector, it will be difficult to avoid a gas shortage in winter,” he said. He added that curtailing consumption would still be needed even if winter wasn’t coming. He also warned that even if households and businesses decrease consumption, there’s no guarantee of a “sure-fire” way of preventing gas shortages.

Mueller said these three conditions must be met for the country to get through the winter: Germany must import more natural gas; the gas supplies of Germany’s neighbors must remain stable; and each individual must drastically cut back on gas consumption.
