TSCE #18(B): Canada’s Bills/Treaties Undermine Hague Convention On Child Abduction

Today is the 40th anniversary of the Hague Convention on Child Abduction. This is to focus on the civil side (such as custody issues). While this seems impressive, Canada has done much domestically and internationally to undermine and weaken the principles. Even the UN has studied the connection between illegal border crossings and smuggling, trafficking and child exploitation. Quite simply, without real borders, the Hague Convention is meaningless.

1. Trafficking, Smuggling, Child Exploitation

For the previous work in the TSCE series. This is the 40th anniversary of the Hague Convention of Child Abduction. However, Governments ensure that it will continue. Also, take a look at open borders movement, the abortion and organs industry, and the NGOs who are supporting it. This is information that won’t be found in the mainstream or alternative media.

3. Quotes From Hague Convention (Civil) Treaty

Article 3
The removal or the retention of a child is to be considered wrongful where –
a) it is in breach of rights of custody attributed to a person, an institution or any other body, either jointly or alone, under the law of the State in which the child was habitually resident immediately before the removal or retention; and
b) at the time of removal or retention those rights were actually exercised, either jointly or alone, or
would have been so exercised but for the removal or retention.

Article 4
The Convention shall apply to any child who was habitually resident in a Contracting State immediately before any breach of custody or access rights. The Convention shall cease to apply when the child attains the age of 16 years.

Article 5
For the purposes of this Convention –
a) “rights of custody” shall include rights relating to the care of the person of the child and, in particular, the right to determine the child’s place of residence;
b) “rights of access” shall include the right to take a child for a limited period of time to a place other than the child’s habitual residence.

Article 8
Any person, institution or other body claiming that a child has been removed or retained in breach of custody rights may apply either to the Central Authority of the child’s habitual residence or to the Central Authority of any other Contracting State for assistance in securing the return of the child.
The application shall contain –
a) information concerning the identity of the applicant, of the child and of the person alleged to have removed or retained the child;
b) where available, the date of birth of the child;
c) the grounds on which the applicant’s claim for return of the child is based;
d) all available information relating to the whereabouts of the child and the identity of the person with whom the child is presumed to be.
.
The application may be accompanied or supplemented by –
e) an authenticated copy of any relevant decision or agreement;
f) a certificate or an affidavit emanating from a Central Authority, or other competent authority of the State of the child’s habitual residence, or from a qualified person, concerning the relevant law of that State;
g) any other relevant document.

Article 13
Notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding Article, the judicial or administrative authority of the requested State is not bound to order the return of the child if the person, institution or other body which opposes its return establishes that –
a) the person, institution or other body having the care of the person of the child was not actually exercising the custody rights at the time of removal or retention, or had consented to or subsequently acquiesced in the removal or retention; or
b) there is a grave risk that his or her return would expose the child to physical or psychological harm or otherwise place the child in an intolerable situation.
.
The judicial or administrative authority may also refuse to order the return of the child if it finds that the
child objects to being returned and has attained an age and degree of maturity at which it is appropriate
to take account of its views.
.
In considering the circumstances referred to in this Article, the judicial and administrative authorities shall
take into account the information relating to the social background of the child provided by the Central
Authority or other competent authority of the child’s habitual residence.

Article 17
The sole fact that a decision relating to custody has been given in or is entitled to recognition in the requested State shall not be a ground for refusing to return a child under this Convention, but the judicial or administrative authorities of the requested State may take account of the reasons for that decision in applying this Convention.

In short, this is an international agreement to enforce child custody orders, or family disputes. Note: the children don’t have to be return if administrators determine there is some danger. Unfortunately, this seems entirely subjective.

4. Announcement From Global Affairs Canada

Statement
October 25, 2020 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada
.
The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Honourable David Lametti, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, today issued the following statement:
.
“Today, we mark the 40th anniversary of the Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
“Every year, in Canada and abroad, thousands of children are wrongfully taken across international borders by a parent or guardian in violation of rights of custody. This has devastating effects on families, and it is the children who suffer the most. Children must be at the heart of family justice, and mechanisms like the Hague Convention on child abduction are essential in order to assist them in these terrible situations.
.
“Canada, along with 100 contracting states, continues to support this global effort to protect children from wrongful removal or retention and return them to their country of residence. We continue to call on the global community to join us and to ratify this important convention.
.
“We are committed to working with our international partners to continue to protect children and to reinforce the operation of the convention.”

While this all sounds fine, it should be noted that Canada has done a lot, both domestically, and with international treaties to weaken and undermine the spirit of this agreement.

What other treaties or bills do this?

5. Canada’s Bills/Treaties Since 1980

Here are some of the major developments in Canada in the last few decades. All of these either weaken the borders and/or reduce the criminal penalties involved.

  • UN Agenda 21 (1992)
  • Canada/US Safe 3rd Country Agreement (2002)
  • FIPA (2012)
  • Sanctuary cities (First in 2013)
  • CANZUK: Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK (2015)
  • UN Agenda 2030 (2015)
  • New York Declaration (2016)
  • Bill C-6 citizenship for terrorists (2016)
  • Bill C-32/C-75 (2018)
  • UN Global Migration Compact (2018)
  • USMCA, NAFTA 2.0 (2020)

It doesn’t matter who’s in power. They’re all globalists.

6. Canada/US Safe 3rd Country Agreement

CONVINCED, in keeping with advice from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and its Executive Committee, that agreements among states may enhance the international protection of refugees by promoting the orderly handling of asylum applications by the responsible party and the principle of burden-sharing;

ARTICLE 8
(1) The Parties shall develop standard operating procedures to assist with the implementation of this Agreement. These procedures shall include provisions for notification, to the country of last presence, in advance of the return of any refugee status claimant pursuant to this Agreement.
(2) These procedures shall include mechanisms for resolving differences respecting the interpretation and implementation of the terms of this Agreement. Issues which cannot be resolved through these mechanisms shall be settled through diplomatic channels.
(3) The Parties agree to review this Agreement and its implementation. The first review shall take place not later than 12 months from the date of entry into force and shall be jointly conducted by representatives of each Party. The Parties shall invite the UNHCR to participate in this review. The Parties shall cooperate with UNHCR in the monitoring of this Agreement and seek input from non-governmental organizations.

Source is here. Serious question: why have Canada and the United States signed an agreement that quite clearly gives the UN a seat at the table?

The treaty was pretty ineffective anyway, given that people could still get into the country as long as they BYPASSED legal border ports. Now, thanks to the Federal Court, the agreement is effectively dead.

Of course, the tens of thousands entering Canada illegally in recent years pales in comparison to the hordes of LEGAL migrants entering under various programs.

7. FIPA Between Canada And China

FIPA largely eliminated the border between Canada and the Chinese. This means that Chinese nationals can freely enter Canada, almost without restrictions. They can also bring their own security to look after their national interests. Makes it easy to smuggle products — or people — into Canada.

8. Sanctuary Cities Forming In Canada

In 2013, Toronto became the first city in Canada to officially obtain status a sanctuary city. It was supported by “conservatives” Doug and Rob Ford. How are child custody agreements supposed to be enforced overseas when children can simply disappear in one of them?

Now list includes: Toronto, Hamilton, London, Montreal, Edmonton and others. In the 2018 Ontario election, the NDP campaigned on turning Ontario into a sanctuary province.

9. CANZUK (CDA, Australia, New Zealand, UK)

The Trans-Tasmanian Partnership is an agreement between Australia and New Zealand to let citizens work and freely travel in each other’s countries. CANZUK would essentially be an expansion of that agreement by adding both Canada and the UK. This is an actual open borders arrangement which could be further expanded.

CANZUK International was formed in 2015, and members of the CPC are some of its biggest supporters.

It’s also interesting how the justifications have changed. Previously, it was about opportunity. Now it’s about containing Chinese influence, which Conservatives allowed to grow in the first place. One obvious example is FIPA.

10. UN Agenda 2030, Sustainable Development

Agenda 2030 was signed in September 2015 by then PM Stephen Harper. It signs away more of Canada’s sovereignty to the “sustainable development agenda”, and makes mass migration across international borders even easier. So-called conservatives would be hard pressed to explain why this is okay, but why the Paris Accord and UN Global Migration Compact are so wrong. There is a lot of overlap with the content.

Worth a mention is that “Conservative” Brian Mulroney was in power in 1992 when Agenda 21 was signed in Brazil.

11. New York Declaration, UN GMC Prelude

This was signed in September 2016, just a year after Agenda 2030. The UN Global Migration Compact was largely based on this text. Both agreements are to make it easier to bring large numbers of people across borders, and to establish international standards. It’s not difficult to see how this would make child abduction and transportation easier to do.

12. Bill C-6, Citizenship For Terrorists

It cheapens Canadian citizenship when anyone can get it. This is especially true for convicted terrorists and traitors. There’s also the increased likelihood of people gaming the system to avoid being sent back, for say crimes against children.

13. Bill C-32/C-75, Reducing Criminal Penalties

If the government is concerned about the well being of children, then why would they introduce a bill to water down criminal penalties for sex crimes against children, and reduce the age of consent?

  • Section 58: Fraudulent use of citizenship
  • Section 159: Age of consent for anal sex
  • Section 172(1): Corrupting children
  • Section 173(1): Indecent acts
  • Section 180(1): Common nuisance
  • Section 182: Indecent interference or indignity to body
  • Section 210: Keeping common bawdy house
  • Section 211: Transporting to bawdy house
  • Section 242: Not getting help for childbirth
  • Section 243: Concealing the death of a child
  • Section 279.02(1): Material benefit – trafficking
  • Section 279.03(1): Withholding/destroying docs — trafficking
  • Section 279(2): Forcible confinement
  • Section 280(1): Abduction of child under age 16
  • Section 281: Abduction of child under age 14
  • Section 291(1): Bigamy
  • Section 293: Polygamy
  • Section 293.1: Forced marriage
  • Section 293.2: Child marriage
  • Section 295: Solemnizing marriage contrary to law
  • Section 435: Arson, for fraudulent purposes
  • Section 467.11(1): Participating in organized crime

Bill C-75 “hybridized” these offences. What this means is that they were initially to be tried by indictment (felony), but now prosecutors have discretion to try them summarily (misdemeanor). Of course, there were plenty of Section 83 offences (terrorism) that were also hybridized.

14. UN Global Migration Compact

What is strange about the UNGMC is that its text explicitly undermines its stated goals. While the UN supposedly opposed smuggling, the agreement says people shall not be punished. And while condemning trafficking, the UN provides advice and guidance on how to do it more successfully.

15. USMCA, More Than Just Trade

The new USMCA (U.S., Mexico & Canada Agreement) is far more than just a trade agreement. It ensures that more “workers” will be coming across the borders, and cedes areas of labour rights to the UN.

16. How Does Any Of This Help Children?

Remember, this is the 40th anniversary on the Hague Convention on Child Abduction. Member states, (of which Canada is one), should take seriously the obligation to ensure that children are not taken across borders illegally, even if it’s by a parent, or some other guardian.

Instead, Canada signs treaties and passes bills that ensure that this will continue. Erasing borders, and reducing penalties does nothing to deter child smuggling. In fact, it only encourages it.

Sure, these changes don’t explicitly state moving children around illegally is a major goal (or even a goal at all). But as borders become less meaningful, this will certainly increase.

Babylon Beaver Endorses Eric O’Toolie For Prime Minister (Satire)

After serious consideration, staff at the Babylon Beaver have decided to support Eric O’Toolie for Prime Minister in the next Federal election.

Anti-free speech elements in the CPC have tried to get this parody account banned from Twitter, claiming it is misrepresentation and impersonation. The producers here at the Beaver do not support censorship or deplatforming of anyone, especially political candidates.

Parody accounts in particular need the most protection, as the truth is too painful for most people to grasp.

Eric (with the goatee), never worked as a Facebook lobbyist, or for Heenan Blaikie, or supported FIPA or CANZUK, or sold Canadians out to foreigners. Eric has also never celebrated walking around in red high heel shoes. That makes him a far more attractive choice then Erin (without the look).

Sure, there are concerns that Eric is just an internet meme, and not a real person. However, the Babylon Beaver recognizes that no one is perfect, and is willing to work with Eric.

And yes, it’s true that Eric has no platform, stands for nothing, and speaks in empty and vacuous platitudes. However, that just shows that he has the experience for the job.

CV #24(B): London School Of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, More Modelling Financed By Gates

The London School Of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine gets substantial funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as does Imperial College London. And both have been funded to conduct computer modelling. Let’s dive in a bit deeper.

1. Other Articles On CV “Planned-emic”

The rest of the series is here. Many lies, lobbying, conflicts of interest, and various globalist agendas operating behind the scenes. The Gates Foundation finances many things, including, the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, GAVI, ID2020, John Hopkins University, Imperial College London, the Pirbright Institute, the British Broadcasting Corporation, Sick Kids Hospital, and individual pharmaceutical companies. Worth mentioning: there is little to no science behind what our officials are doing; they promote degenerate behaviour; the Australian Department of Health admits the PCR tests don’t work; the US CDC admits testing is heavily flawed; and The International Health Regulations (IHR), that the WHO imposes are legally binding on all members.

3. Still Getting Money For Modelling

London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
Date: September 2020
Purpose: to model the direct and indirect health and economic impacts of COVID-19 in LMICs
Amount: $166,059
Term: 11
Topic: Delivery of Solutions to Improve Global Health

Program: Global Development
Grantee Location: London
Grantee Website: http://www.lshtm.ac.uk/

Granted, the School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine isn’t nearly as notorious as Imperial College London is at this point. However, Gates is still paying for computer modelling, so one has to wonder if the results are preplanned.

4. Earlier Gates Money For Modelling

London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
Date: October 2016
Purpose: to maximize impact and accelerate development of new TB vaccines by creating and applying novel mathematical models to estimate the main target product profiles drivers for epidemiological impact of new TB vaccines
Amount: $193,437
Term: 39
Topic: Tuberculosis
Program: Global Health
Grantee Location: London
Grantee Website: http://www.lshtm.ac.uk/

The Gates Foundation also donated to some 2016 computer modelling. There are of course other grants over the years.

5. Centre for the Modelling of Infectious Diseases

The Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (CMMID) at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is a multidisciplinary grouping of epidemiologists, mathematicians, economists, statisticians and clinicians from across all three faculties of LSHTM.

That is the main team of researchers who are involved in the computer modelling (or guesswork), trying to determine how much viruses will spread.

6. Online Course: Intro To Modelling

Infectious diseases remain a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with HIV, tuberculosis and malaria estimated to cause 10% of all deaths each year. New pathogens continue to emerge, as demonstrated by the SARS epidemic in 2003, the swine flu pandemic in 2009, MERS CoV in 2013, Zika in 2016 and recently, SARS-CoV-2.

Mathematical models are being increasingly used to understand the transmission of infections and to evaluate the potential impact of control programmes in reducing morbidity and mortality. Applications include determining optimal control strategies against new or emergent infections, such as SARS-CoV-2, Zika or Ebola, or against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria, and predicting the impact of vaccination strategies against common infections such as measles and rubella. Modelling was used extensively in the UK during the recent swine flu pandemic to monitor the extent of ongoing transmission and the potential impact of control such as school closures and vaccination. It is currently being used in many countries to predict the impact of interventions against COVID-19.

This two week online course, organised jointly between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Public Health England is intended to introduce professionals working on infectious diseases in either developing or developed countries to this exciting and expanding area. The emphasis will be on developing a conceptual understanding of the basic methods and on their practical application, rather than the manipulation of mathematical equations. The methods will be illustrated by “hands-on” experience of setting up models in spreadsheets as well as other specialist modelling packages, and seminars in which the applications of modelling will be discussed.

If you have 1,700 pounds to spare, then this modelling course may be for you. It’s an introduction into how computer modelling works to estimate growth and decay.

While it is true that computer modelling was used in Zika, Ebola and Swine Flu, that’s not really something to brag about. Just search “Neil Ferguson Imperial College London”.

The focus won’t be on manipulating mathematical equations? That’s good I guess.

7. Gates Very Well Known In LSHTM

A quick search of Bill Gates on the school’s website flags 143 articles. Gates, and his foundation, are well known and written about.

8. Models Aren’t Evidence Of Anything

This should be abundantly clear to all, but it is worth repeating. Models are just predictions, and limited by:

[1] The quality of the data coming in
[2] The understanding of how nature actually works
[3] The political agenda of the modeler

They are not proof or evidence, and should be given no weight when it comes to making complicated and expensive policy decisions.

We see time and time again that the information going in is garbage, and that the people doing the work have little to no grasp of what they are estimating. We also see too many politicians, bureaucrats, academics, and people in business who have their own agenda.

Don’t take any of these “predictions” at face value.

TSCE #33: California State Senator Scott Wiener, And His Weaponized Legislation

This site doesn’t often cover U.S. politics and legislation, but this one is worth making an exception for. Scott Wiener is a California State Senator in the 11th District.
https://sd11.senate.ca.gov/
https://twitter.com/Scott_Wiener/status/1292489212751536129

1. Trafficking, Smuggling, Child Exploitation

There is a lot already covered in the TSCE series. Many of the laws politicians pass absolutely ensure this obscenity will continue. This piece will focus on the various legislation advanced by California State Senator, Scott Wiener, who has been very active. Also, for more general background information, take a look at Open Borders movement, and the NGOs who are supporting it.

3. Gaslighting Critics As Intolerant Bigots

Wiener has lashed out at critics to his various legislation, calling them homophobes and anti-Semites. Wiener is gay and Jewish, according to his background information, but that is not where the bulk of the hate comes from. His Bills “do” give a legitimate cause for concern, and this appears to be a way of deflecting from that.

4. SB-132: Male Inmates In Female Prisons

SB 132, as amended, Wiener. Corrections.
Existing law establishes the state prisons under the jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Existing law authorizes a person sentenced to imprisonment in the state prison or a county jail
for a felony to be, during the period of confinement, deprived of those rights, and only those rights, as is reasonably related to legitimate penological interests.

This bill would, commencing January 1, 2021, would require the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to, during initial intake and classification, and in a private setting, ask each individual entering into the custody of the department to specify the individual’s gender identity and sex assigned at birth, and, if the individual’s gender identity is different from their sex assigned at birth, whether the individual identifies as transgender, nonbinary, or intersex, and their gender pronoun and honorific. The bill would prohibit the department from disciplining a person for refusing to answer or not disclosing complete information in response to these questions. The bill would authorize a person under the jurisdiction of the department to update this information. The bill would prohibit staff and contractors staff, contractors, and volunteers of the department from failing to consistently use the gender pronoun and honorific an individual has specified in verbal and written communications with or regarding that individual that involve the use of a pronoun or honorific.

SB-132 would allow putting prison inmates in whichever prison they want, according to what they claim to be. Disturbingly, this would presumably cover male rapists and sex offenders being allowed into prisons with women. And yes, it also requires prison staff to use preferred pronouns.

5. SB-145: Sex Offender Registry, Gay Pedos

SB 145, Wiener. Sex offenders: registration.
Existing law, the Sex Offender Registration Act, requires a person convicted of one of certain crimes, as specified, to register with law enforcement as a sex offender while residing in California or while attending school or working in California, as specified. A willful failure to register, as required by the act, is a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the underlying offense. This bill would exempt from mandatory registration under the act a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register.

Scott Wiener claims there is a loophole, which mandates registry as a sex offender for certain acts, ones that straight couples would presumably not engage in. This Bill would remove the requirement for a Judge to designate the person as a sex offender if there is less than a 10 year age gap. In short, lower the age of the victim this would apply to. Instead of an exemption if the person is 18 years old, 15 to 17 year olds would now be included.

While Wiener may have a valid point, a far better option would be to RAISE the minimum age of the victim overall, not lower it.

Regular readers on this site will likely remember Part 17, and Part 18 of the series. This included lowering the age of consent for anal, and reducing the penalties for sex crimes against children in Canada.

Spoiler: it’s not homophobic to oppose letting adults have sex with children. It’s called being a decent person with some morals.

6. SB-201: Surgeries For Intersexed Children

SB 201, as amended, Wiener. Medical procedures: treatment or intervention: sex characteristics of a minor.
Under existing law, the Medical Practice Act, it is unprofessional conduct for a physician and surgeon to fail to comply with prescribed informed consent requirements relating to various medical procedures, including sterilization procedures, the removal of sperm or ova from a patient under specified circumstances, and the treatment of breast cancer. Any violation of the law relating to enforcement of the Medical Practice Act is a misdemeanor, as specified.

a person born with variations in their physical sex characteristics who is under 6 years of age unless the treatment or intervention is medically necessary. The bill, on or before December 1, 2021, would require the Medical Board of California, in consultation with specified persons and entities, to adopt regulations to determine which treatments and interventions on the sex characteristics of a person born with variations in their physical sex characteristics who is under 6 years of age are medically necessary, as specified. Any violation of these provisions would be subject to disciplinary action by the board, but not criminal prosecution.

SB-201 would make it much harder, if not impossible, for parents of intersex children to get them surgeries so as to better conform with 1 of the 2 genders. Interestingly, Wiener supports the rights of trans-children to do what they want to their bodies. However, parents apparently can’t be trusted to act in their best interests.

7. SB-233: Decriminalizing Sex Work (Hooking)

SB 233, Wiener. Immunity from arrest.
Existing law criminalizes various aspects of sex work, including soliciting anyone to engage in, or engaging in, lewd or dissolute conduct in a public place, loitering in a public place with the intent to commit prostitution, or maintaining a public nuisance. Existing law, the California Uniform Controlled Substances Act (CUCSA), also criminalizes various offenses relating to the possession, transportation, and sale of specified controlled substances.

This bill would prohibit the arrest of a person for a misdemeanor violation of the CUCSA or specified sex work crimes, if that person is reporting that they are a victim of, or a witness to, specified crimes. The bill would also state that possession of condoms in any amount does not provide a basis for probable cause for arrest for specified sex work crimes.

This Bill would decriminalize many minor aspects of sex work, and give immunity to prostitutes for more serious matters if they are reporting crimes to the police.

8. SB-239: No Longer A Felony To Spread HIV

(1) Existing law makes it a felony punishable by imprisonment for 3, 5,or 8 years in the state prison to expose another person to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) by engaging in unprotected sexual activity when the infected person knows at the time of the unprotected sex that he or she is infected with HIV, has not disclosed his or her HIV-positive status, and acts with the specific intent to infect the other person with HIV. Existing law makes it a felony punishable by imprisonment for 2, 4, or 6 years for any person to donate blood, tissue, or, under specified circumstances, semen or breast milk, if the person knows that he or she has acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), or that he or she has tested reactive to HIV. Existing law provides that a person who is afflicted with a contagious, infectious, or communicable disease who willfully exposes himself or herself to another person, or any person who willfully exposes another person afflicted with the disease to someone else, is guilty of a misdemeanor

This bill would repeal those provisions. The bill would instead make the intentional transmission of an infectious or communicable disease, as defined, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than 6 months if certain circumstances apply, including that the defendant knows he or she or a 3rd party is afflicted with the disease, that the defendant acts with the specific intent to transmit or cause an afflicted 3rd party to transmit the disease to another person, that the defendant or the afflicted 3rd party engages in conduct that poses a substantial risk of transmission, as defined, that the defendant or the afflicted 3rd party transmits the disease to the other person, and if the exposure occurs through interaction with the defendant and not a 3rd party, that the person exposed to the disease during voluntary interaction with the defendant did not know that the defendant was afflicted with the disease. The bill would also make it a misdemeanor to attempt to intentionally transmit an infectious and communicable disease, as specified, punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than 90 days. This bill would make willful exposure to an infectious or communicable disease, as defined, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than 6 months, and would prohibit a health officer, or a health officer’s designee, from issuing a maximum of 2 instructions to a defendant that would result in a violation of this provision. The bill would impose various requirements upon the court in order to prevent the public disclosure of the identifying characteristics, as defined, of the complaining witness and the defendant. By creating new crimes, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

In the notes provided, it shows that this bill would reduce the penalties from knowingly infecting someone with HIV from a 3, 5, or 8 year sentence (and a felony conviction), to a 6 month maximum (tried as a misdemeanor). It also prevents the publication of that offender. This effectively protects such predators, by ensuring that there aren’t real penalties. Check out the full text of the bill.

9. SB-888: Cash Or Vouchers For Meth Users

SB 888, as amended, Wiener. Birth certificates. Substance use disorder services: contingency management services.
Existing law provides for the Medi-Cal program, which is administered by the State Department of Health Care Services, and under which qualified low-income individuals receive health care services, including substance use disorder services that are delivered through the Drug Medi-Cal Treatment Program and the Drug Medi-Cal organized delivery system. The Medi-Cal program is, in part, governed and funded by federal Medicaid program provisions.

This bill would, to the extent funds are made available in the annual Budget Act, expand substance use disorder services to include contingency management services, subject to utilization controls. The bill would require the department to issue guidance and training to providers on their use of contingency management services for Medi-Cal beneficiaries who access substance use disorder services under any Medi-Cal delivery system, including the Drug Medi-Cal Treatment Program and the Drug Medi-Cal organized delivery system. The bill would provide that contingency management services are not a rebate, refund, commission preference, patronage dividend, discount, or any other gratuitous consideration. The bill would authorize the department to implement these provisions by various means, including provider bulletin, without taking regulatory action, and would condition the implementation of these provisions to the extent permitted by federal law, the availability of federal financial participation, and the department securing federal approval.

There was originally provisions to issue new birth certificates indicating whatever gender the person wanted, but that seems to have been removed. As the Bill stands, it would build into the budget, sums of money to help meth users, in the hopes they will get clean.

10. SB-932: Collecting LGBTQ Data Everywhere

SB 932, Wiener. Communicable diseases: data collection.
(1) Existing law requires the State Department of Public Health to establish a list of reportable communicable and
noncommunicable diseases and conditions and to specify the requirements for a health officer, as defined, to report each listed disease and condition. Existing law requires a health officer to report the listed diseases and conditions and to take other specified measures to prevent the spread of disease. A violation of these requirements imposed on a health officer is a crime. This bill would require any electronic tool used by a health officer, as defined, for the purpose of reporting cases of communicable diseases to the department, as specified, to include the capacity to collect and report data relating to sexual orientation and gender identity, thereby imposing a state-mandated local program. The bill would also require a health care provider, as defined, that knows of or is in attendance on a case or suspected case of specified communicable diseases to report to the health officer for the jurisdiction in which the patient resides the patient’s sexual orientation and gender identity, if known. Because a violation of these requirements by a health care provider or a health officer would be a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated-local program.

(2) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

(3) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately
as an urgency statute

It’s not entirely clear why there would be this need to ask and record everyone’s gender, and who they sleep with. Perhaps it’s to play the victim, and get extra funding at some point.

11. California Has Bigger Problems

There are other Bills that Wiener has been involved with, of course. However, the above sample should demonstrate his priorities as a California State Senator.

Surely, California has far more important issues to deal with than the topics that Scott Wiener has drafted legislation for. The State is bankrupt, and flooded with illegal aliens, a crashed economy, and the social services are near collapse, but he doesn’t seem to care.

It’s not hard to see Wiener’s legislation is deliberate efforts to uproot social norms and to create chaos. There seems to be little to no concern for the long term consequences.

Wiener may not be a pedophile himself, but he certainly seems sympathetic to those who are.

12. Remember The Trudeau Liberals

The content of Scott Wiener’s Bills is shockingly similar to some of the efforts of the Trudeau Government. See here, here, and here.

Never forget, these are some of the crimes which Bill C-75 amended. They are now eligible to be tried summarily (misdemeanor), as opposed to it being mandatory to proceed by indictment (felony).

  • Section 159: Age of consent for anal sex
  • Section 172(1): Corrupting children
  • Section 173(1): Indecent acts
  • Section 180(1): Common nuisance

  • Section 435: Arson, for fraudulent purposes
  • Section 467.11(1): Participating in organized crime

CV #57: US CDC Says Problems In Testing, False Positives And Negatives

1. Other Articles On CV “Planned-emic”

The rest of the series is here. There are many: lies, lobbying, conflicts of interest, and various globalist agendas operating behind the scenes, and much more than most people realize. For examples: The Gates Foundation finances many things, including, the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, GAVI, ID2020, John Hopkins University, Imperial College London, the Pirbright Institute, and individual pharmaceutical companies. It’s also worth mentioning that there is little to no science behind what our officials are doing, though they promote all kinds of degenerate behaviour. Also, the Australian Department of Health admits the PCR tests don’t work, and the US CDC admits there are large problems with current testing.

3. CDC: Not Enough Isolates For Testing

Analytical Performance:
.
Limit of Detection (LoD):
.
LoD studies determine the lowest detectable concentration of 2019-nCoV at which approximately 95% of all (true positive) replicates test positive. The LoD was determined by limiting dilution studies using characterized samples.
.
The analytical sensitivity of the rRT-PCR assays contained in the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel were determined in Limit of Detection studies. Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA (N gene; GenBank accession: MN908947.2) of known titer (RNA copies/µL) spiked into a diluent consisting of a suspension of human A549 cells and viral transport medium (VTM) to mimic clinical specimen. Samples were extracted using the QIAGEN EZ1 Advanced XL instrument and EZ1 DSP Virus Kit (Cat# 62724) and manually with the QIAGEN DSP Viral RNA Mini Kit (Cat# 61904). Real-Time RT-PCR assays were performed using the ThemoFisher Scientific TaqPath™ 1-Step RT-qPCR Master Mix, CG (Cat# A15299) on the Applied Biosystems™ 7500 Fast Dx Real-Time PCR Instrument according to the CDC 2019-nCoV RealTime RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel instructions for use.

Taken at face value, they don’t have enough isolates available, alternative methods would have to be used.

4. CDC Admits False Positives Happen

CDC.serious testing.problems.July.13

Results are for the identification of 2019-nCoV RNA. The 2019-nCoV RNA is generally detectable in upper and lower respiratory specimens during infection. Positive results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.

(Page 3) So a positive result could mean you have the coronavirus, or it could mean something else. That isn’t exactly very helpful.

5. CDC Admits False Negatives Happen

CDC.serious testing.problems.July.13

Results are for the identification of 2019-nCoV RNA. The 2019-nCoV RNA is generally detectable in upper and lower respiratory specimens during infection. Positive results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.

Negative results do not preclude 2019-nCoV infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or other patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.

Testing with the CDC 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel is intended for use by trained laboratory personnel who are proficient in performing real-time RT-PCR assays. The CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel is only for use under a Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization.

(Page 3) Okay, so not only will these tests not tell you conclusively that you have the virus, it won’t tell you that you DON’T have it either. False positives and false negatives are bound to happen

5. Extensive List Of Limitations

CDC.serious testing.problems.July.13

• All users, analysts, and any person reporting diagnostic results should be trained to perform this procedure by a competent instructor. They should demonstrate their ability to perform the test and interpret the results prior to performing the assay independently.
• Performance of the CDC 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel has only been established in upper and lower respiratory specimens (such as nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs, sputum, lower respiratory tract aspirates, bronchoalveolar lavage, and nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate or nasal aspirate).
Negative results do not preclude 2019-nCoV infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or other patient management decisions. Optimum specimen types and timing for peak viral levels during infections caused by 2019-nCoV have not been determined. Collection of multiple specimens (types and time points) from the same patient may be necessary to detect the virus.
A false-negative result may occur if a specimen is improperly collected, transported or handled. False-negative results may also occur if amplification inhibitors are present in the specimen or if inadequate numbers of organisms are present in the specimen.
• Positive and negative predictive values are highly dependent on prevalence. False-negative test results are more likely when prevalence of disease is high. False-positive test results are more likely when prevalence is moderate to low.
• Do not use any reagent past the expiration date.
If the virus mutates in the rRT-PCR target region, 2019-nCoV may not be detected or may be detected less predictably. Inhibitors or other types of interference may produce a false-negative result. An interference study evaluating the effect of common cold medications was not performed.
• Test performance can be affected because the epidemiology and clinical spectrum of infection caused by 2019-nCoV is not fully known. For example, clinicians and laboratories may not know the optimum types of specimens to collect, and, during the course of infection, when these specimens are most likely to contain levels of viral RNA that can be readily detected.
• Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for clinical symptoms.
• The performance of this test has not been established for monitoring treatment of 2019-nCoV infection.
• The performance of this test has not been established for screening of blood or blood products for the presence of 2019-nCoV.
• This test cannot rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens.

(Page 37/38) A pretty lengthy list: the test itself seems to be plagued by limitations.

6. CDC On Test’s Intended Use

INTENDED USE
The CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel is a realtime RT-PCR test intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from the 2019-nCoV in upper and lower respiratory specimens (such as nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swabs, sputum, lower respiratory tract aspirates, bronchoalveolar lavage, and nasopharyngeal wash/aspirate or nasal aspirate) collected from individuals who meet 2019-nCoV clinical and/or epidemiological criteria (for example, clinical signs and symptoms associated with 2019-nCoV infection, contact with a probable or confirmed 2019-nCoV case, history of travel to a geographic locations where 2019-nCoV cases were detected, or other epidemiologic links for which 2019-nCoV testing may be indicated as part of a public health investigation). Testing in the United States is limited to laboratories certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), 42 U.S.C. § 263a, to perform high complexity tests.

Results are for the identification of 2019-nCoV RNA. The 2019-nCoV RNA is generally detectable in upper and lower respiratory specimens during infection. Positive results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or coinfection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.

Negative results do not preclude 2019-nCoV infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or other patient management decisions. Negative results must be combined with clinical observations, patient history, and epidemiological information.

Testing with the CDC 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel is intended for use by trained laboratory personnel who are proficient in performing real-time RT-PCR assays. The CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel is only for use under a Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization.

(Page 56) Again, plenty of room for false positives and false negatives from happening. These testing methods can’t even exclude having the virus. They can’t even tell if some other disease is causing the positive result.

7. Testing Has Very Serious Problems

These tests won’t definitively tell people that they have this virus. Nor will they definitively show that a person doesn’t have it. A secondary verification is needed.

The tests also can’t rule out diseases caused by other bacteria or pathogens. So false positives could be cause by other, unrelated illnesses.

The CDC concedes that not enough cell line has been isolated (when at the time of publication), which would further complicate things.

What do Canadian officials have to say about testing and error rates? See the next piece on errors.
-Barbara Yaffe admits up to 50% false positives in virus tests
-Bonnie Henry admits up to 30% false negatives in virus tests
-Bonnie Henry admits high error rates (false positives and false negatives) when it comes to antibody testing.

Do these tests work? Perhaps, but officials admit that the results are highly unreliable. Combine this with the political agendas of many of our leaders, and people have good reason to be skeptical.

TSCE #31: Global News Pretends There Aren’t Cults Of Satanic Pedos & Traffickers (Epstein Anyone?)

There are many, many valid reasons to criticize Donald Trump. However, Global(ist) News is being downright disingenuous about there not being any organized pedophile groups.

https://twitter.com/globalnews/status/1296468830496198658

1. Trafficking, Smuggling, Child Exploitation

Global News, like CTV and CBC, are dependent on the Canadian taxpayers for funding, even though few actually watch them. They will never address serious issues like human smuggling or trafficking, or the connection between open borders, and human smuggling. This media outlet will also never get into the groups or NGOs who are pushing these agendas.

2. Global News Claims Networks Don’t Exist

U.S. President Donald Trump stoked the flames of a wide-ranging, fantastical and unfounded conspiracy theory on Wednesday, acknowledging the QAnon movement, which imagines him as a warrior for God against a global ring of Satan-worshiping pedophile elites.

The FBI has described QAnon as a domestic terror threat, and the Southern Poverty Law Center has also warned that the group is becoming increasingly popular with anti-government extremists. Its followers are also extremely loyal to Trump, whom they see as the mastermind in a secret war against child sex traffickers.

Trump claimed to be ignorant of the group and its beliefs on Wednesday, though he also said he was glad they saw him in a positive light.

“It is this belief that you are secretly saving the world from this Satanic cult of pedophiles and cannibals,” she said. “Does that sound like something that you are behind?”

“Well, I haven’t heard that, but is that supposed to be a bad thing or a good thing?” Trump said.

Global News claims, (or at least one of their authors claims), claims that trafficking and pedo networks are just conspiracy theories, and that Q-Anon is just a group of crazies. Regardless of where the Q movement has gone, it does do some really good work. Read the article for yourself, but it’s clear the author hasn’t done much homework, or even checked out the Global News archives.

3. Global’s Own Archives Show Otherwise

The article’s author, Josh Elliott, implies that it’s nonsense to believe that there are organized groups of pedophiles, and other human rights abusers. However, even a quick look through Global’s archives show that these topics have been covered, many times.

It’s unclear whether this is done to take pot-shots at Trump personally, or to play down the existence of such groups.

Certainly, Trump has failed in many ways, such as: no wall, massive deficits, increased illegal immigration, and lackluster support for free speech. However, this isn’t really the place to go after him.

4. Some Background On Epstein/Maxwell Cases

For some more background on who Epstein and Maxwell were connected to, see Part 23 in the series. Many people with high connections were involved. Yet, Global News seems to believe that these networks are just conspiracy theories.

5. Maxwell Court Documents Ordered Unsealed

https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/6250471/Epstein-Docs.pdf
https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/6250471-Epstein-Docs.html

III. CONCLUSION
To summarize, we hold as follows:
.
(1) Materials submitted in connection with a motion for summary judgment are subject to a strong presumption of public access.
.
(2) The summary judgment record at issue will be unsealed upon issuance of our mandate, subject to minimal redactions.
.
(3) Materials submitted in connection with, and relevant to, discovery motions, motions in limine, and other non dispositive motions are subject to a lesser—but still substantial— presumption of public access.
.
(4) The District Court is directed to review the remaining sealed materials individually and unseal those materials as appropriate.
.
(5) District courts should exercise the full range of their substantial powers to ensure their files do not become
vehicles for defamation.

For the foregoing reasons, we VACATE the orders of the District Court entered on November 2, 2016, May 3, 2017, and August 27, 2018, ORDER the unsealing of the summary judgment record as described herein, and REMAND the cause to the District Court for particularized review of the remaining materials.

In undertaking this task, the District Court may be well served by ordering the parties to submit to the Court unredacted, electronic copies of the remaining sealed materials, as well as specific, proposed redactions. The District Court may also order the parties to identify and notify additional parties whose privacy interests would likely be implicated by disclosure of these materials.

In the interests of judicial economy, any future appeal in this matter shall be referred to this panel.

The Court ordered (see page 30) that the evidence and pleadings previous blocked from publication should now become unsealed. It was in the public interest to do so.

6. Flight Records Were Entered As Evidence

Now, John Roberts is a common enough name, but could it refer to the sitting Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court?

https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/6250471/Epstein-Docs.pdf

The records of the Lolita Express start at page 463 in the unsealed documents, and run some hundred pages. Some familiar names include: Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, Kevin Spacey & Chris Tucker, to name just a few. These were actually used as evidence in court proceedings.

7. Pleading Records Were Released Too

Although too long to detail here, the pleadings of Virginia Roberts and Ghislaine Maxwell were both released as well. So this isn’t just wild speculation, but actual allegations and defenses filed with the courts.

https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/6250471/Epstein-Docs.pdf

Seriously, Global News, if you are going to claim that this is all a figment of Trump’s imagination, you’ll have to put a little more work into it, in order to be convincing.
