    False claims that pandemic is a hoax or was started deliberately are attracting adherents around world Significant numbers of people around the world believe Covid-19 was created deliberately, has killed far fewer people than reported, or is a hoax and does not actually exist, according to a global survey.Along with belief in other conspiracy theories – such as that the world is run by a secret cabal – the YouGov-Cambridge Globalism Project, a survey of about 26,000 people in 25 countries designed in collaboration with the Guardian, found widespread and concerning scepticism about vaccine safety.Among the most widely believed Covid...

    Donald Trump has made warnings about the threat of antifa and far-left fascism a central part of his re-election campaign. But in reality leftwing attacks have left far fewer people dead than violence by rightwing extremists, new research indicates, and antifa activists have not been linked to a single murder in decades. A new database of nearly 900 politically motivated attacks and plots in the United States since 1994 includes just one attack staged by an anti-fascist that led to fatalities. In that case, the single person killed was the perpetrator. White supremacists or anti-police libertarians? What we know about...

    Guardian is a Chinese drama that can be seen on YouTube with English captioning. This is an action video for an action superhero, Chu Shuzhi, a member of the Special Investigations Unit. First instinct of the series - a mix of buddy cop show, Harry Potter's Deathly Hallows, and Buffy. I'm hooked.

    The British lefts flagship newspaper is facing the call to eat its own tail, after more than 12,000 people have signed a petition calling for the liberal, pro-Black Lives Matter Guardian to be shut down over its historical links to slavery and for siding with the Confederate states during the American Civil War. The Change.org petition to the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) already has more than 12,000 signatures with the number growing hourly, spurred on by accusations against the newspaper of hypocrisy for backing the far-left BLM while having a history connected to slavery. The call comes after far-left...

    About three days ago I discovered the 40 episodes of Guardian, a Chinese drama on YouTube with English captions. I'm starting my 2nd go-round. Absolutely compelling. If you ever read the Judge Dee mysteries, this has a lot in common. A buddy show that includes the supernatural and emphasizes family love, loyalty and self-sacrifice. Set on an alien world that's been at peace for 10,000 years but that peace is about to stop. The buddies are a superman-like character with an everyday identity of university prof, and the chief of special investigations. My first music video in this fandom.
  • Leaked exchanges from internal posts at Facebook show employees wanted to remove Trump's 'looting and shooting' tweets that were reposted to the site despite CEO Zuckerberg saying they were 'essential state advice'

    Some workers at Facebook are unhappy with the social media giant's decision to not take any action on controversial posts by President Donald Trump, despite having been flagged on Twitter. Some of the employees are calling on Facebook executives to reconsider the decision to keep up Trump''s controversial posts about mail-in ballots and the Minnesota protests. 'I have to say I am finding the contortions we have to go through incredibly hard to stomach,' one employee was quoted in an email as reported by The Verge.

    The Guardian US Edition ^ | Jan 27, 2020 | staff
    A federal court has ruled Arizona Republicans ban on mail-in ballots is illegal and unconstitutional, calling it intentionally discriminatory toward people of color, who already face increased barriers to voting. The ruling is a major victory for the Democratic party, which filed the suit, and will likely make it easier for minorities to get their ballots counted in the largely red state.

    Attorney General Bill Barr will announce a new Department of Justice initiative tomorrow called Project Guardian. Project Guardian, which will be implemented through ATF and overseen by DOJ, will focus on preventing "gun violence" in cities across the country. Barr will make the announcement and detail the project Wednesday from downtown Memphis. He will be joined by ATF Acting Director Regina Lombardo, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee D. Michael Dunavant and ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Nashville Field Division Marcus Watson. In the meantime, President Trump's DOJ has been setting records for prosecutions against felony...

    In February 2017, the Washington Posts Miller had the lead byline on a story based on leaks of Trumps conversations with Australias prime minister and Mexicos president. Six months later, the Post published the entire transcripts of both conversations in another Miller story. It was through such national security correspondents that anti-Trump sources -- intelligence officials -- pushed leaks of classified information and other tidbits intended to damage Trump into the media. There it merged with other anti-Trump currents in nearly every corner of the press, where it blossomed into Russiagate. After a nearly two-year investigation, the special counsel found...

    While Mueller has cast a shadow over Trump for 18 months now, he has been almost entirely silent since he was brought out of retirement as a special counsel tasked with picking up the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election, and any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump. The word integrity seems to be almost sewn into the fabric of his pin-striped suits. Its why [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein brought him into this role of special counsel, Graff said, because he is probably the...

Charles Pope • October 2, 2018 • Guardian Angel Protecting Child, Domenico Fetti (1615-18)The Feast of the Guardian Angels, celebrated on Tuesday, seems an appropriate time to point out that the common practice of naming one’s guardian angel should be avoided.A document authored by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in 2001 states, “The practice of assigning names to the holy angels should be discouraged, except in the cases of Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael, whose names are contained in Holy Scripture” (Directory on Popular Piety in the Liturgy:...

    White Greater Double ALTHOUGH THE SOLEMNITY of the 27th of September celebrates the praises of all the nine glorious choirs, yet the piety of the faithful, in the latter ages, desired to have a special day consecrated to the Guardian Angels. Several churches having taken the initiative, and kept the Feast under various rites and on different days, Paul V (1608) authorized its celebration ad libitum. Clement X (1670) established it by precept as a Feast of double rite on the 2nd of October, the first free day after Michaelmas, on which it thus remains in some way dependent....
  • The Guardian openly supports turning video games into leftist propaganda

    Every major video game outlet is Left-wing. Anyone who visits any major gaming site knows this. Theyre all in support of subverting video games using Anita Sarkeesians anti-fun model of game design. Theyre all in support of the Leftist agenda whenever it rears its head in indie or AAA games. And now theyve come to a point where theyre literally coming out and claiming that video games simply need to become Leftist propaganda. In an article written by Alfie Brown and published on The Guardian on August 13th, 2018, Brown makes no qualms about coming out and saying that game...

    Just came across an intriguing theory about Sergei Skripal, the former Soviet/Russian military intelligence agent who spied for Britain, and, along with his daughter Yulia, was nearly killed this spring by a dose of the nerve agent Novichok in the town of Salisbury, England, where they live. In a March 21 interview on the John Batchelor Show, Gregory R. Copley, editor and publisher of Defense & Foreign Affairs, posited that Sergei Skripal is the unnamed Russian intelligence source in the Steele dossier. Copley further explained (or tried to explain) to Batchelor (who kept cutting him off): The people who wished...
  • Human activity making mammals more nocturnal, study finds

    Research involving 62 species found mammals spent relatively less time being active during the day when humans were nearbyHuman disturbance is turning mammals into night owls, with species becoming more nocturnal when people are around, research has revealed. The study, encompassing 62 species from around the globe, found that when humans were nearby, mammals spent relatively less time being active during the day and were more active at night - even among those already classed as nocturnal. Experts say such a shift might not only affect particular animals themselves for example impacting their ability to navigate or find food...

In a detailed statement about the experience, which he described as bewildering and intimidating at times, Malloch said the federal...

    Congressional investigations into the Trump dossier have so far been focused on the FBI and Justice Department. They still are, but now investigators are also looking into a possible Obama State Department role in the collection and dissemination of sensational and still-unverified allegations against candidate Donald Trump gathered by a former British spy working for the Hillary Clinton campaign. In addition to having contacts in the Obama Justice Department and FBI, that former spy, Christopher Steele, was also well-connected with the Obama State Department. A book published in November by a correspondent at the Guardian, "Collusion: Secret meetings, dirty money,...

    Buying wholesale into the Cuban state media claim that Fidel Castro's eldest son committed suicide based on clinical depression, The Guardian put up suicide hotlines in its news write-up. They knew how much its readers identify with the Castros, and considered this a death in the family. The British lefty paper actually posted this notice at the bottom of its story about the demise of 68-year-old Fidelito Castro: • In the UK the Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123. In the US, the National SuicidePrevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255. In Australia, the crisis support service Lifeline is on 13...

    ne of the biggest puzzles about our current predicament with fake news and the weaponisation of social media is why the folks who built this technology are so taken aback by what has happened. Exhibit A is the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, whose political education I recently chronicled. But hes not alone. In fact Id say he is quite representative of many of the biggest movers and shakers in the tech world. We have a burgeoning genre of OMG, what have we done? angst coming from former Facebook and Google employees who have begun to realise that the cool...
