As Many as 50 High-Level Trump Supporters Have Been Raided by FBI and/ or Subpoenaed

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon appeared on Tucker said close to 50 high-level Trump supporters have been raided and served with subpoenas and/ or search warrants. Steve Bannon said that the raids were used for intimidation and as an opportunity for the FBI to take devices such as phones and computers. Bannon said that Trump allies have been targeted for ‘lawfare’ and “financial terrorism” as the Biden regime aims to bankrupt their political opposition, and, to perhaps have them assassinated through “swatting”.

Former White House advisor Steve Bannon is claiming that at least 35 allies of President Donald Trump had their homes raided and electronics seized by the FBI just this week.

Bannon claimed the DOJ operation was partially referenced in the Washington Post.

It sounds like he was referring to the following article.

From The Washington Post, “Prosecutors seek details from Trump’s PAC in expanding Jan. 6 probe”:

The Justice Department is seeking details about the formation and operation of Donald Trump’s post-presidential political operation, according to three people familiar with the probe, sending a raft of subpoenas in a significant expansion of the criminal investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol and efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

A federal grand jury sent subpoenas on Wednesday to a wide range of former campaign and White House staffers asking for information about the Save America PAC, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing probe. They described the subpoenas as broad, seeking all documents and communications about opening the PAC and every dollar raised and spent.

At least one of the subpoenas also demanded information about the plan to submit slates of phony electors claiming Trump won pivotal states, including all communications with several key lawyers and advisers involved in the effort, one of the people said. They include Rudy Giuliani, Boris Epshteyn, Bruce Marks, Victoria Toensing and Joseph DiGenova, this person said.

Another one of the three people, who has direct knowledge of one of the subpoenas, said the document was “wide ranging” and included multiple other categories of information, but this person declined to describe them. FBI agents served at least some of the subpoenas in person on Wednesday, one of the people with knowledge said.

Spokesmen for Trump and the Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Some of the details of the subpoenas were reported by ABC and the New York Times.

Epshteyn declined to comment. So did Toensing, who is married to DiGenova. Giuliani did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Bannon pleaded not guilty on all charges and said the feds will have to kill him to shut him up.

German Green Party Politician Supports Ukraine War Instead German People Who Are at Risk of Freezing to Death

German Foreign Minister and Green Party member Annalena Baerbock promised that she would stand with Ukraine “as long as you need us” and explicitly said that she would be supportive of Ukraine “no matter what my German voters think,” even as Germans face freezing to death in winter due to energy shortages. She said that the sanctions against Russia over the war in Ukraine will remain instead of demanding a diplomatic resolution between Russia and Ukraine.

Journalist Alex Christoforou said that EU leaders, including Joseph Borrell, the foreign minister of the EU, Jens Stoltenberg of NATO, UK Prime Minister Liz Truss, Boris Johnson and French President Macron promote sacrifice by the European people in order to continue the war in Ukraine. The Green Party in Europe is pro-war and is following the neo-liberal model that also supports the corporate takeover of government. Christoforou said that Ukraine has been used for years for money laundering and wealthy elites are upset with Russian President Putin for disrupting their game.




Swiss Citizens Who Overheat Their Homes This Winter Could Face 3 Years In Jail

Switzerland: New legislation to conserve the country’s energy supply will make heating homes to more than 66ºF (19°C) unlawful in the event of an energy shortage. In addition, hot water should not be heated to more than 60ºF and portable electric heaters, saunas, and heated swimming pools are prohibited. People who violate the new heating rules could face fines of 3,000 Swiss francs and up to three years in prison. French economist Charles Gave said many people aren’t buying the narrative that Vladimir Putin is solely to blame for the crisis. “For the last 15 years, our European leaders have gone into a climate craze, promoting magic mirrors and windmills as the solution. It does not work. These solutions demand the same capacity in gas power plants.”

After the Swiss and Finns joined the Germans, Austrians, and Swedes in bailing out there energy providers, who are facing trillions in margin calls; new legislation covering Switzerland’s energy supply will make heating homes to more than 19°C unlawful in the event of an energy shortage.

In addition, hot water should not be heated to more than 60 degrees, and portable electric heaters, saunas, and heated swimming pools are prohibited.

Remix News’ Thomas Brooke reports that Swiss citizens found to be in violation of the country’s new heating rules, which prohibit warming homes above 19°C this winter, could face daily fines of up to 3,000 Swiss francs and up to three years in prison.

To note, the World Health Organization has long held that a temperature no colder than 20°C is recommended for children, the elderly, and those with existing health conditions.

Markus Spörndli, a spokesperson of the Swiss Department of Economics (DEF) explained that “infringements of the law on the supply of the country are always misdemeanors, even […] crimes, and must be prosecuted ex officio by the cantons.”

The fine to be imposed on consumers found to be violating the new energy laws will range from 30 francs up to a maximum of 3,000 francs per day, Spörndli said, confirming the amount would be dependent on the nature of the offense and the economic situation of the perpetrator.

Furthermore, willful violations of the government guidelines could see consumers jailed for up to three years in prison, something Spörndli says the government hopes to avoid.

“The draft ordinances are based primarily on the fact that the vast majority of the population respects the laws,” he added.

Economy Minister Guy Parmelin told a press conference at the Federal Council last Wednesday that Switzerland is “not a police state,” but it is understood, as reported by Swiss news outlet Blick, that there may be spot checks undertaken to ensure people are complying with the rules.

Swiss cantons now have until Sept. 22 to discuss the proposals and address how they may be enforced, with some officials concerned they may be inundated with citizen complaints from nosy neighbors.

Tucker Carlson Reveals Europe’s Plunge into Poverty as Western Leaders Refuse Simple Solution

Tucker Carlson explains the dire situation in Europe, which is descending into poverty due to energy shortages caused by the sanctions against Russia over the war in Ukraine. Most Germans heat their homes with natural gas but they are turning to burning wood. People in Poland are waiting in lines for hours for coal. France is rationing energy. In the UK, 70% of restaurants preparing to close. The benchmark for fuel costs has exceeded 1000 euros per megawatt hour first time in history. In France, the price of energy went up 25% in one day. Oil prices have doubled, coal prices have quadrupled and natural gas is 7 times more expensive than last year. The World Economic Forum said Europe could cut $1 trillion from switching to renewables, but fossil fuels are key to civilization — green energy is not close to replacing oil, gas and coal. The Green New Deal means poverty. Carlson explains how leaders are hypocrites whose actions show that they do not believe in global warming. The solution to the energy shortages is simple: end the war in Ukraine and re-establish energy flows into Europe and save the global economy. Instead, Western leaders refuse to relent, indicating that they are trying to destroy the West.




Trillions in Energy Company Bailouts Threaten Economies in Europe and Across the Globe

Some European energy companies that hedge their sales in futures markets are facing margin calls as increasing energy prices have sent collateral requirements soaring. The margin calls are estimated to be over $1.5 trillion. This is causing energy prices to soar even higher. The energy companies may be ‘too big to fail’ because winter will bring real consequences: people will die if there is no fuel to heat their homes. The importance of a balanced mix, with nuclear, hydro, gas and renewables is more evident every day.

Summary by JW Williams

Energy companies that hedge their sales in futures markets are facing margin calls as increasing energy prices have sent collateral requirements soaring. The margin calls are estimated to be over $1.5 trillion. This is causing energy prices to soar even higher.

The European Central Bank (ECB) is refusing to provide short-term cash injections and says that governments should bail out the energy companies because the ECB only provides bailout cash to banks, not to energy utility firms. The ECB anticipates a potential wave of defaults in the energy market.

Some countries in the EU have already decided to set up funds to avoid a collapse of their energy derivatives markets. The Swiss and Finns have joined the Germans, Austrians, and Swedes in bailing out there energy providers. European policymakers must decide if they are going to subsidize consumers or the utility companies.

If European governments decide this is their ‘whatever it takes’ moment and demands that government “do something” to save the over-leveraged companies from themselves, prices could skyrocket to the moon. The energy companies may be ‘too big to fail’ because winter will bring real consequences: people will die if there is no fuel to heat their homes.

Europe needs more market and less intervention. The importance of a balanced mix, with nuclear, hydro, gas and renewables is more evident every day.

Adults Aged 35–44 Died At Twice The Expected Rate Last Summer, Life Insurance Data Suggests

Death claims for working-age adults under group life insurance policies spiked well beyond expected levels last summer and fall, according to data from 20 of the top 21 life insurance companies in the United States. Death claims for adults aged 35 to 44 were 100% higher than expected in July, August, and September 2021, according to a report by the Society of Actuaries, which analyzed 2.3 million death claims submitted to life insurance firms. During the third quarter of last year, deaths in the 25-to-34 age bracket were 78% above the expected level and, for people aged 45 to 54, 80% higher than expected. Excess mortality was 53% above the baseline for adults aged 55 to 64. Most of the life insurance companies listed COVID-19 as the cause of death if it was listed anywhere on the death certificate, without doing any investigation into the true cause of death.

Hedge fund manager Edward Dowd pointed out that excess deaths peaked around the time the Biden administration mandated COVID-19 vaccines and companies rushed to comply. As of August 31, 2022, about 90% of Americans 18 or older had gotten at least the first dose of one of the COVID-19 vaccines, and 77% had gotten both a first and a second dose.

Death claims for working-age adults under group life insurance policies spiked well beyond expected levels last summer and fall, according to data from 20 of the top 21 life insurance companies in the United States.

Death claims for adults aged 35 to 44 were 100 percent higher than expected in July, August, and September 2021, according to a report by the Society of Actuaries, which analyzed 2.3 million death claims submitted to life insurance firms.

The report looked at death claims filed under group life insurance policies during the 24 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, from April 2020 to March 2022. The researchers used data from the three years before the pandemic to set a baseline for the expected deaths.

While COVID-19 played some role in the majority of the excess deaths for adults over the age of 34 during the two pandemic years, the opposite was true for younger people. For people 34 and younger, the number of excess non-COVID deaths was higher than those related to COVID, the data show.

During the third quarter of last year, deaths in the 25-to-34 age bracket were 78 percent above the expected level and, for people aged 45 to 54, 80 percent higher than expected. Excess mortality was 53 percent above the baseline for adults aged 55 to 64.

The Society of Actuaries (SOA) asked all 20 of the participating life insurance companies how they determine the cause of death for the purpose of recording claims. Of the 18 that responded, 17 said they list COVID-19 as the cause of death if it’s listed anywhere on the death certificate, while eight of the 18 said they go further and communicate with relatives and the medical examiner and look at other sources to try to determine the true cause of death.

One life insurance company stated that it recorded COVID-19 as the cause of death only when it could be determined to be the primary cause of death on a death certificate.

The report also notes that white-collar workers had the highest number of excess deaths during the two years studied. The group, which includes accountants, lawyers, computer programmers, and most other jobs done in an office setting, had 23 percent more deaths than expected.

The sharp increase of deaths among working-age people was first brought to light by Scott Davison, CEO of the Indianapolis-based life insurance company OneAmerica, who said in a virtual press conference on Dec. 30, 2021, that his company and the life insurance industry as a whole was seeing a 40 percent increase in deaths among people ages 18 to 64.

Davison said at the time that this represented the highest death rates in the history of the life insurance business, and that an increase in mortality of just 10 percent would constitute a “three-sigma” event, a once-in-200-year catastrophe.

OneAmerica is one of the 20 companies that contributed data for the SOA report. The others include Aflac, Anthem, The Hartford, Lincoln Financial Group, MetLife, New York Life, and Principal Financial.

Edward Dowd, a hedge fund manager who has been studying excess mortality for the past several months and has an upcoming book on the topic, Cause Unknown, says the rate of deaths among young people is alarming. He pointed out that excess deaths peaked around the time the Biden administration mandated COVID-19 vaccines and companies rushed to comply.

Temporally, in that three-month period, the change was such that, there was something that occurred,” he said. “Well, we all know what occurred in August, September, and October. It was Biden’s mandates on Sept. 9, and a lot of corporations anticipating those mandates.

President Joe Biden on Sept. 9, 2021, mandated COVID-19 vaccines for federal employees and health care workers in facilities certified by Medicare and Medicaid. The same day, the president tasked the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) with implementing a nationwide vaccine mandate on private businesses with 100 or more employees.

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down the OSHA mandate in January but allowed the mandate for health care workers to remain in place.

The campaign to vaccinate the majority of the population against COVID-19 is the largest vaccination campaign in the history of the world.

As of Aug. 31, about 90 percent of Americans 18 or older had gotten at least the first dose of one of the COVID-19 vaccines, and 77 percent had gotten both a first and a second dose.

Dr. Robert Malone, a physician and research scientist credited with the invention of the mRNA technology for use in vaccines, says excess mortality must always be studied to determine whether a vaccine or medicine really is safe.

“Excess mortality should be a signal, a trigger,” he told The Epoch Times. “When we see excess mortality like that—basically if you’re running a clinical trial and you see this kind of excess mortality, you stop the trial. And you investigate the cause before you proceed. And if you’re marketing a drug, generally, with this kind of data, you stop the distribution of the drug until you have sorted it out.”
