Elementary School Calls Cops on 6-Year Old with Down’s Syndrome for Using Her Fingers as a Gun Gesture

Pennsylvania; Margot Gaines, a 6 year-old-girl with Down’s syndrome, who made her hand into the shape of a finger gun and pointed at her teacher, was questioned by the police over the incident. The school district’s threat assessment on little Margot concluded nobody was in harm’s way as a result of Margot’s gesture. The mother is angry because her daughter now has a police report on file. -GEG

In today’s hysteria over guns and potential school shootings, administrators at Valley Forge Elementary School in Pennsylvania called police on one of their students for a threat assessment.

The student in question? Margot Gaines, a 6 year-old-girl with Down syndrome who made her hand into the shape of a finger gun. The girl was questioned and police eventually concluded that there was no substantial threat.

Penn Live reports:

The mother of a six-year-old girl with Down syndrome is fuming over the fact her little girl now has a police report on file.

This, after the girl’s mother, Maggie Gaines, tells CBSPhilly that the Tredyffrin-Easttown School District in Chester County overreacted when her daughter pretended to shoot her teacher with her finger.

The classroom incident dates to last November, 6-year-old Margot, a student at Valley Forge Elementary School, made the finger gun shooting gesture that triggered a disciplinary investigation by the school.

The Tredyffrin-Easttown School District called the probe it conducted a “threat assessment” – and told CBSPhilly that its policy mandated local police to be called.

Ultimately, the district’s threat assessment on little Margot concluded nobody was in harm’s way as a result of Margot’s statement and gesture, CBSPhilly reports. The girl’s actions were labeled a “transient threat,” which Gaines explained was an expression of anger.

Now the mother is the one who is angry because her daughter now has a police report on file as a result of the incident.

“I was fine with everything up until calling the police,” Gaines told CBSPhilly. “And I said, ‘You absolutely do not have to call the police. You know, this is ridiculous.’”

The Bio-Weapon Theory of the China Epidemic

Jon Rappoport, an investigative journalist who has been researching vaccines for more than three decades, wrote an article stating that, if rumors of escalating deaths in China are true, a virus may not be the cause. He makes the case that pneumonia could be the real cause of recent deaths in China, caused by air pollution, toxic chemicals, and 5G. He proposed a scenario where a germ may be used as a cover story to distract attention from the use of toxic chemicals on citizens. Chemicals are more effective than germs as a bio weapon, because chemicals are predictable, temporary, and cannot be detected unless one is specifically looking for them.

[We are publishing this article, not because we have evidence to prove this is true, but because the scenario, sadly, is consistent with current events, and we think it is something to consider if this current virus scare turns into an excuse to lock down the population and force vaccines on everyone.] -GEG

NOTE: IF THE LATEST RUMORS SUPPOSEDLY COMING OUT OF CHINA ABOUT THE FURIOUS PACE OF ESCALATING DEATHS ARE TRUE…IF THEY ARE…AND THAT’S A VERY BIG IF….THEN LOOK TO SOMETHING OTHER THAN A VIRUS AS THE CAUSE…

I’ll consider these rumors here, in this article, for the sake of covering all possible bases…I must emphasize, again, this is a very big IF…

Continuing my series on China and the supposed coronavirus epidemic… (archive here)

Many reports and rumors are circulating: huge numbers of people are trying to escape lockdown in Chinese cities; bodies in Wuhan are piling up; Chinese agents or assets stole biological materials from two labs in the US and Canada, for the purpose of smuggling them into China; a new biowar research facility has opened in Wuhan.

At the heart of these reports is: the dreaded coronavirus has been weaponized and is on the loose—either as the result of an accident or an intention.

Many people, including self-styled experts, assume that an ATTEMPT to weaponize a virus equals success. They’re watching too many sci-fi movies. Automatically jumping from attempt to success is unwarranted.

“But the proof is there. People in China are dying.”

I’ve already covered this. Millions of people, moving back into history, have died in China, as a result of the number one condition now cited as evidence of the new epidemic: pneumonia. They were dying long before anyone knew about a coronavirus or tried to weaponize it.

“But now people in China are dying at a furious pace, suddenly.”

Is this a report or a rumor? If it’s a true report, I suggest starting with the cause as something in the environment—not a virus. An escalation in the already toxic air pollution above Chinese cities. Possibly, the effects of deploying 5G technology widely in Wuhan. The intentional deployment of a highly dangerous chemical, whose effects would be far more predictable, in terms of intensity and duration, than a virus.

Below, you can read a backgrounder I wrote many years ago, on the staging of a hypothetical bioterror attack. It proposes a chemical as the hidden cause.

THE VIRUS, as I’ve explained in recent articles, is one of the most successful cover stories in modern human history. It is invoked to obscure the actions of major corporations and governments: industrial pollution, stolen farm land, hunger, starvation, intentionally sustained. Lack of basic sanitation. Grinding poverty. Wars. Toxic medical drugs and vaccines. And so on. It’s called population control. “HIV” in Africa is a perfect example of this kind of operation. The world focuses on the virus. The true crimes go on unnoticed.

Here is the backgrounder. Use your imagination and adjust the context from a small town to a major city.

How to stage a fake bioterror attack

Imagine this. A big-time doctor from the US Biological Warfare Group waddles into a meeting room, where a collection of Army, CIA, NSA, and DHS representatives sit quietly in their chairs. He says: “So I understand you boys want to put on a little domestic bioterror show, to keep the natives from becoming too restless. Well, the first thing you need to know is, germs don’t obey orders. Forget all that sci-fi nonsense. Germs work and they don’t work. It’s a crapshoot. You could have a big fat dud on your hands. I can tell you how to make it work, though, if you give up on your fancy high-tech wet dreams…”

The primary fact is: no matter what kind of germ you’re talking about or where it came from, releasing it intentionally does not guarantee predictable results. Far from it.

For instance, people whose immune systems operate at different levels of strength are going to react differently.

The perpetrators may find that far, far, far less than .001% of people exposed get sick or die.

But there is another strategy that should be understood:

The use of a germ as a cover story for a chemical.

In other words, there is no germ attack. It’s called a germ attack, but that’s a lie. The perps bring in researchers to the affected area, who go on to claim they have isolated a germ that is the cause of death and illness. It’s a sham. What really happened was:

The spread of a toxic chemical that can’t be detected, unless you’re looking for it.

The chemical has severe, deadly, and predictable effects for a short period. Then it disperses and loses potency and the “epidemic” is done.

In some town, a fairly isolated community, the word goes out that people are suddenly falling ill and dying. The CDC and the Army are called in to cordon off the area and quarantine all citizens. A peremptory announcement is made, early on, that this is a biowar attack.

Major media are allowed outside the periphery. Network news anchors set up on-location and do their wall to wall broadcasts “from the scene.”

The entire nation, the entire world, is riveted on the event, 24/7.

People inside the cordon fall ill and die. Reports emerge from the town:

The networks state that “heroic doctors are taking samples of blood and the blood is being analyzed to find the germ that is causing the epidemic.” The DOD confirms over and over that this is, indeed, a biowar attack.

Human interest stories pile up. This family lost three members, that family lost everybody. Tragedy and horror produce the desired empathic response from “the world community.”

It’s a soap opera, except real people are dying.

The medical cartel promotes fear of the germ.

All controlling entities obtain their piece of the terrorist pie.

Finally, the doctors announce they have isolated the germ causing death in the small town, and researchers are rushing to develop a vaccine (which they produce in record time).

Everyone everywhere must be vaccinated, now. No choice. Do it or be quarantined or jailed.

In this declared martial law situation, the doctors are the heroes. The doctors and the Army. And the government, and even the media.

Then, after a few weeks or months, when the potency of the secret chemical has dispersed, it’s over.

In the wake of a staged “biowar” terror attack, new laws are enacted. The State clamps down harder on basic freedoms. The right to travel is limited. Criticizing the authorities is viewed as highly suspect. Freedom of assembly is squeezed.

“Citizens must cooperate. We’re all in this together.”

New laws mandating the CDC schedule of vaccines for every child and adult—no exceptions permitted—are rushed through legislatures.

There are people who are determined to inflate the dangers of germs. They trumpet every “new” germ as the end of humankind on the planet. They especially sound the alarm when researchers claim a germ may have mutated or jumped from animals to humans.

“This is it! We’re done for!”

However, if you check into actual confirmed cases of death from recent so-called epidemics, such as West Nile, SARS, bird flu, Swine Flu, and Ebola, the numbers of deaths are incredibly low.

If political criminals, behind the scenes, wanted to stage a confined “biowar” event, they would choose a chemical, not a germ, and they would leverage such an event to curtail freedom.

Understand: researchers behind sealed doors in labs can claim, with unassailable ease, that they’ve found a germ that causes an outbreak. Almost no one challenges such an assertion.

This was the case, for example, with the vaunted SARS epidemic (a dud), in 2003, when 10 World Health Organization (WHO) labs, walled off from view, in communication with each other via closed circuit, announced they’d isolated a coronavirus as the culprit.

Later, in Canada, a WHO microbiologist, Frank Plummer, wandered off the reservation and told reporters he was puzzled by the fact that fewer and fewer SARS patients “had the coronavirus.” This was tantamount to confessing that the whole research effort had been a failure and a sham—but after a day or so of coverage, the press fell silent.

SARS was a nonsensical farce. Diagnosed patients had ordinary seasonal flu or a collection of familiar symptoms that could result from many different causes.

But the propaganda effort was a stunning success. Populations were frightened. The need for vaccines, in the public mind, was exacerbated.

Several years ago, I spoke with a biologist about the fake bioterror scenario I’ve sketched out above. His comment was: “Do you think any mainstream scientist would dare go into that cordoned-off town and actually check the area for a highly toxic chemical? He’d be blackballed, exiled, and discredited in a minute. The authorities would call him crazy. And that’s if he were lucky.”

Such is “science,” these days. A researcher can discover anything he wants to, if it’s approved. Otherwise, the door is closed to him.

Face it, there are plenty of “chemical incidents” in the world. Oil spills, an exploding oil platform at sea, fracking pollution, air pollution, Roundup drenching GMO crops, factories emitting chemicals into rivers as if they were sewers, tens of thousands of giant cargo ships belching toxic sulfur compounds into the air, and so on. THERE IS A NEED FOR DISTRACTIONS AND COVER STORIES.

Enter THE VIRUS, and “epidemics.” They receive wall to wall coverage on the news. Why? Why not, instead, something like THIS receiving endless coverage: “HOW 16 SHIPS CREATE AS MUCH POLLUTION AS ALL THE CARS IN THE WORLD”:

21 November, 2009, author Fred Pearce, consultant to the New Scientist, writing in the Daily Mail: “There are now an estimated 100,000 ships on the seas, and the fleet is growing fast as goods are ferried in vast quantities from Asian industrial powerhouses to consumers in Europe and North America.”

“The recession has barely dented the trade. This Christmas, most of our presents will have come by super-ship from the Far East; ships such as the Emma Maersk and her seven sisters Evelyn, Eugen, Estelle, Ebba, Eleonora, Elly and Edith Maersk.”

“Each is a quarter of a mile long and can carry up to 14,000 full-size containers on their regular routes from China to Europe.”

“But [each ship] burns marine heavy fuel, or ‘bunker fuel’, which leaves behind a trail of potentially lethal chemicals: sulphur and smoke that have been linked to breathing problems, inflammation, cancer and heart disease.”

New Privacy Law in California Could Stop Big Tech from Collecting and Selling Your Personal Data. Article Includes Links to Remove Your Data, Even If You Don’t Live in CA.

California’s Consumer Privacy Act allows users to request a copy of the data that tech companies have on them, delete the data when they no longer want a company to have it, and demand that their data isn’t sold to third parties. A number of large companies are extending the new law to users outside of California. Consumers must contact each company individually to exercise their rights under the new law. This article contains a list of dozens of large companies and their contact links to take control over the collected data. -GEG

Excerpt from Washington Post:

Okay, let’s do it! Where do I click?

The list below includes many of the companies where I’ve submitted CCPA requests, with the best links I could find to exercise the rights to opt out of sale, access and delete data. I’ve separated out the companies that have indicated they’ll offer CCPA rights to all Americans. As I find more, or discover that companies change their forms or policies, I’ll update the list.

There are more resources available: A crowdsourced list stored on GitHub, an online resource for coders, has an even longer list of links to company-specific CCPA information pages. Common Sense Media is also building out the website Donotsell.org as a resource for CCPA requests, as is CAPrivacy.org, run by one of the authors of the law. The Electronic Frontier Foundation offers a simple guide on its website, and the Electronic Privacy Information Center has a handy draft form letter to use in cases where companies don’t offer web forms.

If you’re looking for a company not included in any of these resources, I recommend finding the privacy policy on its website and searching for the word California — that’s typically the best place to start.

Updated Feb. 6, 2020. (Thanks to all the readers adding to this list.)

These companies accept CCPA requests from all Americans

These companies accept CCPA requests from California residents:

85,000 Lawsuits Against Monsanto and Bayer for Illness and Death from Roundup may be Settled for $10-Billion


The number of lawsuits against the manufacturers of Roundup weed killer, Monsanto and Bayer, has ballooned to 85,000 after the companies lost three cases that led to enormous settlement awards. Bayer purchased Monsanto in 2018 for $63-billion, and its value has dropped 45% since the sale. Six new cases were scheduled but have been put on hold as Monsanto/Bayer is hoping to settle all present and future cases for $10-billion. Bayer faces more litigation tied to Monsanto. A rash of US states and cities have filed lawsuits claiming the company polluted dozens of bodies of water decades ago with its use of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Monsanto has spent more than $1-billion to resolve PCB claims. -GEG

German pharmaceutical giant Bayer and its embattled CEO remain at risk because of the tens of thousands of lawsuits claiming that Roundup weedkiller causes cancer, but there are reasons for optimism, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Here’s why:

– Bayer may be on the verge of a deal that would pay in the range of $10 billion for current and future plaintiffs who allege the company’s Roundup herbicide causes cancer, which analysts say would be positive for Bayer. Bayer lawyers have said the company will set aside $8 billion to resolve current cases and reserve $2 billion for future claims, five people with direct knowledge of the negotiations reportedly have said.

– Optimism about a possible settlement has pushed shares of Bayer up about 50% from a seven-year low in June.

– Bayer CEO Werner Baumann, who survived a no-confidence vote by shareholders in April, has worked to restore confidence among employees after a drop in morale. For example, he held video town halls to reassure staff each time the company faced a new legal setback in the U.S., the Journal reported, citing a “mid-level executive.” “Last year people talked about the lawsuits all the time, now it’s mostly business as usual,” the person said
