CIA spied on the governments of 120 countries for many years using a cryptosystem

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States and West German intelligence have seen secret messages from governments in more than 120 countries with the help of the famous Swiss company Crypto AG, which has earned millions by selling its devices to many states.

According to a joint investigation by The Washington Post and the German broadcaster ZDF , Crypto AG, a Swiss communications encryption firm, secretly worked with the CIA and West German intelligence. For many years, the company sold devices to foreign governments to spy on messages that its users considered encrypted.

Journalists talked about the details of a multi-year agreement that allowed the United States and its allies to gain access to encryption equipment shipped to more than 120 countries in the 21st century. Crypto’s customers were Iran, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Syria and even the Vatican. At the same time, the Soviet Union, and later Russia, as well as China, have never been clients of Crypto. A CIA report said that US intelligence read up to “80-90 percent of the Iranian government’s reports.”

The authorities of the countries using Crypto devices to protect their communications did not know that they were designed specifically so that Western intelligence officers could easily crack codes used by foreign governments to send messages. During the operation, first known as Thesaurus and then Rubicon, the CIA regularly intercepted secret correspondence, with the help of which it informed the American administration about global military operations, hostage crises, killings and bombings.

“It was a reconnaissance coup of the century,” the CIA report said, one of the documents received by The Washington Post and ZDF as part of their investigation. “Foreign governments did not know that they paid good money to the USA and West Germany for the privilege that their most secret messages were read by at least two (and possibly as many as five or six) foreign countries,” the document says.

Crypto AG was founded by a native of Russia Boris Hagelin, who fled to Sweden after the October Revolution of 1917. He arrived in the United States in 1940 and offered the U.S. Army an M-209 encryption machine, which was less complex and voluminous, like the famous Nazi Enigma. The Pentagon became the first customer of the company founded by Hagelin in Switzerland, having purchased 140 such machines for its needs. After Hagelin created a more advanced cryptosystem in 1955, the American authorities, according to journalists, made a deal with him, which ultimately led to the start of Operation Thesaurus. In cars sold to foreign countries, intelligence officers began to place bookmarks that allowed reading information of interest to Western intelligence.

Journalists managed to gain access to the CIA report of 2004, the company itself suspended operations in 2018, since its services, taking into account the rapid growth of closed communication systems and protection technologies, were not in demand.

The Swiss government has officially opened an investigation into Crypto, according to Swissinfo, the International Service of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation. The general export license for Crypto devices was suspended “until the circumstances of the investigation are clarified.”

Chinese researchers: “Coronavirus came from the laboratories of Wuhan – There were no bats in the market”

According to a report by two Chinese public university researchers, the coronavirus probably came from the laboratories of Wuhan research centers as no bats were sold at the city’s fish market!

The report was published in early February but after a while … was withdrawn, because, as one researcher put it, “it was not supported by tangible evidence . ” It is important, however, that in early February the coronavirus was a more internal problem in China and not a global epidemic, with researchers being more free to publish their views as there was no risk of international outcry.

The report, written and published in Research Gate by  Botao Xiao (Professor of Biology and Industry at the University of Technology in South China) and Lei Xiao (Professor at Wuhan University of Science & Technology), which according to the authors Supported by the National Science Foundation of China, has concluded that: 

“Coronavirus may have come from Wuhan’s laboratories. The level of security may need to be enhanced in biologically hazardous high-risk laboratories.”

Below are the most important points of the report which you can find in full in pdf format here.

“Two descriptions of the virus published in Nature this week showed that the genome sequences from patients were 96% or 89% identical to the bat CoV ZC45 originally found in the genus Rhinolophus affinis.

The bats carrying the CoV ZC45 were originally located in Yunnan Province or Zhejiang Province, both of which were more than 900 kilometers away from the seafood market. The chances were very low for the bats to fly to the market. According to municipal reports and the testimonies of 31 residents and 28 visitors, bats have never been a source of food in the city and are not sold in the market.”

Was there any other possible course? We tracked the area around the seafood market and located two laboratories that conducted research on the coronavirus. Within ~ 280 meters of the market, there was the Yuhan Disease Control and Prevention Center (WHCDC)

WHCDC hosted animals in research laboratories, one of which was specialized in collecting and identifying pathogens. In one study, 155 bats, including the genus Rhinolophus affinis, were collected in Hubei Province and another 450 bats were collected in Zhejiang Province. Operations were performed on these bats. The bats’ nets thrown in the trash were possible sources of coronavirus.

The expert on the collection of viruses described in national newspapers and websites that he was once attacked by bats and the blood of a bat was thrown at his skin. He was aware of the extreme danger of infection, so he entered quarantine for 14 days. In another accident, he was quarantined again because the bats urinated on him. He was once excited because he found a bat with a live tick.

The second laboratory was ~ 12 km from the seafood market and belonged to the Wuhan Institute of Iology. This lab reported that Rhinolophus bats (horseshoe bats) were natural reservoirs for the SARS-CoV that caused the 2002-3 pandemic. The lead researcher took part in a project that created a chimeric virus using the SARS-CoV inverse genetic system and reported its potential in humans. An immediate conjecture was that SARS-CoV or its derivative could leak from the laboratory.

In short, someone is involved in the evolution of the 2019-nCoV corona. In addition to the origin of the natural recombination and the intermediate host, the killer coronavirus probably came from a laboratory in Wuhan. The level of security may need to be enhanced in biologically dangerous high-risk laboratories. Measures may need to be taken to relocate these laboratories away from the city center and other densely populated areas.”

We remind you that the above have been written by Chinese Researchers of Public Chinese Universities.

The Washington Post also commented on the following report in an article  entitled ” How did covid-19 start? The original story of his origin is “bass” “,  which confirms some of the writings of Chinese researchers:

Richard Ebright, a microbiologist at Rutgers University and a biosphere specialist, said in an email that “the first human infection could have been a natural disaster”, with the virus passing from bat to human, possibly through one another animal.

However, Ebright warned that “it could also be a laboratory accident, with, for example, an accidental laboratory infection.” He noted that night bats were studied in Yuhan at the second level of biosafety, “which provides only minimal protection”, compared to the highest level 4.

Ebright described a December video from the Johannes Centers for Disease Control that shows employees “collecting night bats with inadequate personal protective equipment and unsafe business practices.”

On the eve of the collapse – Bank of America assessed the US economy

Bank of America told investors on Thursday that the United States economy is already falling into recession amid the global Covid 19 pandemic.

“We officially declare that the US economy has fallen into recession, joining the rest of the world, and this is one deep descent,” wrote economist Bofa Michelle Mayer.

“Jobs will be lost, prosperity will be destroyed, and trust will be crushed,” she continued.

According to the bank, the US economy will collapse in the second quarter, when GDP is expected to decline by as much as 12%. In addition, the Bank of America notes that unemployment will double with 1 million job losses each month in the second quarter.

“Salvation will come if there is a focused and aggressive political response to compensate for the loss of economic activity and ensure a stable financial system,” Mayer concluded.

The world fell into a systemic crisis

We are talking about events much more serious than what happened in 2008. The scale of the onset of the collapse resembles the Great Depression, although history does not repeat literally. This time everything will happen a little differently than under Hoover.

What is coronavirus in this regard? Accidentally turned up a reason to start a reboot of the global financial system? Unlikely.

Rather, it is an act in a war in which literally all states and the Central Bank will lose, very many corporations, and only a very narrow group of beneficiaries can win …

it’s worth waiting until the results of the damage caused by the epidemic become clear, the results of the oil and gas war, and also see how deep the exchanges will fall during the current stage of the global systemic crisis.

After it becomes clear who exactly survived in this fascinating struggle, it will be possible to decide what it is worth talking about.

Are we heading to a new world ‘war’, acting as a “forest nurse”, rejecting non-viable political entities?

Coca-Cola’s Mysterious Ingredient – Cochineal Insect Liquid

In 2006, for the first time in the world, a lawsuit was launched again Coca-Cola over the composition of the drink. It is usually written on the label that Coca-Cola contains sugar, phosphoric acid, caffeine, caramel, carbon dioxide and some kind of “extract”. This extract aroused suspicion. And Coca-Cola was forced to reveal the secret of what Cola is actually made of. It turned out to be a liquid obtained from the insect Cochineal (Cochineal).

Cochineal is an insect that lives on the Canary Islands and in Mexico. This insect is attached by a proboscis to a plant, sucks juice and never moves. These insects are collected in the fields by villagers … From the females and eggs of these insects, a pigment called carmine is removed, which turns Coca-Cola brown. The dried look of the cochineal makes them look like raisins, but in fact they are insects!

Now you know what the word “Coca” means in the name of the drink. And now you will know what is hidden behind the word “Cola”. To do this, there is a story of an employee who worked at Coca-Cola for 23 years.

Liquorice roots are the raw material for cola and main food source for various mammals, including mice which feed on these roots. Large cola companies harvest tons of these roots using excavators. When assembling these tons of roots, they are not able to pull out the mice.

Therefore, the liquorice roots are pressed along with what was among the roots.

Only after this the remnants of mice hair, paws and so on are pulled out of this mass!

Due to the fact that the drink has a dark shade, it is not noticeable that the blood and gastric fluid of mice is also present in it. Of course, the cola giants are trying to neutralize harmful substances with chemicals.

For 23 years, the employee who told this story has never drank a glass of cola.

Then judge for yourself.

Scientists from Washington analysed the components of one of the ingredients of Coca-Cola. It turned out that caramel is not melted sugar at all, but a chemical mixture of sugar, ammonia and sulfites, obtained at high pressure and temperature. It can cause cancer of the lungs, liver, thyroid gland and leukemia.

It also turned out that alcohol is included in the soda: this is the basis of the very secret supplement “7 X.” A few drops of aromatic oils, coriander and cinnamon are added to alcohol.

Additionally, the cochineal insect liquid – carmine did not pass certification at all, therefore, in some countries they do not produce cola at all.

How does the body react to cola?

  • After 10 minutes.

10 teaspoons of sugar will “hit” your system (this is the daily recommended rate).

You do not vomit, because phosphoric acid suppresses the effect of sugar.

  • In 20 minutes.

There will be a jump in insulin in the blood. The liver turns all sugar into fats.

  • In 40 minutes.

Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils will dilate.

Blood pressure will increase because the liver releases more sugar into the blood.

Adenosine receptors are blocked, thereby preventing drowsiness.

  • In 45 minutes.

Your body will increase the production of dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain’s pleasure center.

The same principle of action in heroin.

  • After an hour.

Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your intestines, speeding up your metabolism.

Increased excretion of calcium through urine.

  • More than an hour later.

Diuretic action comes into play.

Calcium, magnesium and zinc, which are found in your bones, are excreted, as are sodium, electrolyte and water.

  • More than an hour and a half later.

You become irritable or lethargic. All water contained in Coca-Cola is excreted through urine.

The active ingredient in Coca-Cola is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. To transport Coca-Cola concentrate, the truck must be equipped with special containers designed for highly corrosive materials.

The detailed composition of the advertised Coca-Cola Light decaffeinated product:

  • 1. Aqua carbonated, E150d, E952, E950, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211

Aqua carbonated – sparkling water. The presence of carbon dioxide in water excites gastric secretion, increases the acidity of gastric juice and provokes flatulence – abundant gas production. In addition, not spring water is used, but tap water passed through special filters.

  • 2. E952 (Cyclamic Acid and Na, K, Ca salts), Cyclamic acid and its sodium, potassium and calcium salts.

Sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has a sweet taste 200 times the sweetness of sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. It was banned for use in human food, as it is a carcinogen that causes cancer. In 1969, by order of the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it was banned for use in the United States, as it has been proven that it, like saccharin and aspartame, causes bladder cancer in rats. The same year is banned in Canada. In 1975, banned in Japan, South Korea and Singapore. It is forbidden to use in the beverage industry in Indonesia. In 1979, the World Health Organization rehabilitated cyclamates, recognizing them as harmless.

  • 3. E150d (Caramel IV – Ammonia-sulphite process, dye)

– burnt sugar, obtained by processing sugar at certain temperatures, with or without the addition of chemicals. In this case, ammonium sulfate is added.

  • 4. E950 (Acesulfame Potassium, Acesulfame Potassium)

– 200 times sweeter than sucrose. It contains methyl ether, which worsens the functioning of the cardiovascular system, and aspartic acid, which has an exciting effect on the nervous system and can, over time, become addictive. Acesulfame is poorly soluble. Products with this sweetener are not recommended for children, pregnant and lactating women.

  • 5. E951 (Aspartame)

– sweetener for patients with diabetes. Chemically unstable: decomposes into methanol and phenylalanine with increasing temperature. Methanol (methyl alcohol) is very dangerous: 5-10 ml can lead to death of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness, 30 ml can lead to death.

  • 6. E338 (Orthophosphoric Acid, phosphoric acid) – chemical formula: H3 PO4.

Fire and explosion hazard. Causes eye and skin irritation.
