    Ratcliffe said former Justice official Michael Sussmann just "the first of what I would hope would be a number" of others charged in Russia probe. Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says he's given John Durham, special counsel investigating the Russia collusion probe, a trove of documents that he thinks support charges beyond those recently filed against cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussman. "Sussmann's is the first of what I would hope would be a number" of additional people charged, he told Fox News on Sunday. Ratcliffe made the argument on what he said was "1,000 intelligence community documents" that he...
  • Video Clowns Fauci et al Over Rapidly Devolving Narrative on ‘Vaccine’ Effectiveness

    Anthony Fauci isn’t a fool. He just thinks everyone else is. This is why he’s been able to keep a straight face throughout the rapid devolution surrounding the narrative of his beloved vaccines. They were touted as practically 100% effective in the beginning. Today, some are saying they have zero impact on whether its recipients contract Covid-19 or not. A new video highlights the moving goalpost of vaccine effectiveness, starting with all of the reports that show it is 100% or 99% effective and flashing through as the number quickly dropped… and kept dropping. Meanwhile, Fauci has been playing everyone...
  • Election investigators haven't found evidence of counterfeit ballots in Georgia

    ... Based upon interviews with the foregoing witnesses, as well as other witnesses who were interviewed during the course of the investigation, and in the inspection of approximately 1,000 absentee ballots and ballot images, the Secretary's investigators have been unable to substantiate the allegations that fraudulent or counterfeit ballots were counted. Investigators looked into claims made by Suzi Voyles, who worked the county's risk-limiting audit and claimed to see a batch of "pristine" ballots that looked suspicious. Voyles is now running for Congress as a Republican in the 6th Congressional District. After interviewing Voyles two separate times, investigators checked several...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D‑CA), who sits on the Jan. 6 committee investigating the Capitol riot, announced over the weekend that they are “prepared to go forward and urge the Justice Department” to prosecute conservatives who refuse to comply with their subpoenas. The House committee is especially intent on sinking their fangs into Steve Bannon. The committee may refer Bannon for criminal prosecution by the Department of Justice (DOJ) if he doesn’t show up for a deposition slated for Thursday according to The Hill. McQuade said the committee has other options. It could seek the assistance of the House sergeant-at-arms to...
  • Russian Church Defends Life at Moment of Conception: Official Document Considered by Council

    The Council of Bishops, the Supreme governing body of the Russian Orthodox Church, is scheduled to meet this November. They are planning to consider the approval of a canonical document, On the Security of Human Life from Conception. It stipulates the rights endowed to every human being from the very moment of being conceived. “There has been no change in our position on this subject, as it was presented in the Foundations of the Social Doctrine of the Russian Orthodox Church adopted over twenty years ago,” said His Grace Silouan, Bishop of Peterhof, Chairman of the Synodal Commission on Bioethics....

    Internal Capitol Police documents were obtained and released by legal watchdog Judicial Watch. The nearly 500 pages of interviews of witnesses and investigators of the Ashli Babbitt shooting reveal “no good reason for shooting,” according to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt,” Fitton said. “The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for the over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police.”

    Happy Wednesday. How are things going for Democrats today? Let’s review a handful of headlines. (1) Out of Iowa, a legislative seat that has been in Democratic hands for decades is no longer blue. Over the summer, Republicans won back a state senate seat in affluent, suburban, Trump-hostile Connecticut. Last night, they picked off a different sort of district. Trump carried it, but it had remained blue at the state legislative level, even in recent cycles with Trump on the ballot. Change: GOP legislative pickup in Iowa. Seat went 59/41 Dem in 2018 cycle. Dems had held it for decades....

    As the first tranche of COVID-19 restrictions lifted earlier this week, the people of New South Wales (NSW) enjoyed their first taste of freedom after four months of strict lockdown and enforced seclusion. Although vaccination rates in the state were low in July, once the NSW government-linked freedoms to needles, the rates shot up as people flocked to get jabbed. With the 80 percent target due to be reached sometime this week, hope grows that we will return to something resembling normal life by year’s end. Those not yet fully vaccinated—plus conscientious anti-vaxxers—will live restricted lives for some time to...

    A Netflix group for trans workers is coordinating a company-wide walkout protesting the company's latest comedy special from Dave Chappelle and Netflix's responses to criticism that it includes transphobic jokes, according to a report. Netflix didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. "Our leadership has shown us they do not uphold the values to which we are held," an internal organizing message for the group said, as reported by The Verge. "Between the numerous emails and non-answers that have been given, we have been told explicitly that we somehow cannot understand the nuance of certain content."

    [Catholic Caucus] Bishop Schneider tells Steve Bannon the Latin Mass is ‘stronger’ than Pope Francis: ‘It will win’The Pope's 'limitations are really short lived – they will collapse. Because the truth and the beauty of the prayer of the Church of all ages is [are] so powerful and so beautiful. This is the demonstration that the Church is in the hands of God.' Discussing Pope Francis’ new motu proprio Traditionis Custodes that aims at abrogating this Mass, the Kazakh bishop stated, “The traditional Mass is stronger than Pope Francis … it will win.” In an EWTN interview aired October 7,...
  • New Vaccine Out! With Human Studies of MILLION Populations Now Back To Normal No Mask Fun Partying!

    The new vaccine is now available and tested on highly dense human populations of 241 MILLION and now also another 277 million ! It doesn't have to be taken before symptoms are felt, but could be. Very low cost compared to other "solutions". If COVID big case spikes UP were happening in these dense populations, and then with this new vaccine quickly distributed to those showing symptoms, and the cases quickly dropped to nothing in weeks, I think that's a pretty good result, don't you? If that happened in your LOCAL County, or at least companies or local officials knew...

    One of the few public-school systems in North Carolina that has stood its ground on keeping masks optional, despite a legal threat from the state, has seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases. The COVID-19 dashboard for the Union County Public Schools (UCPS) reported 170 positive cases last Friday, down from 252 the previous week, and down from 479 in the second week of September. There are 53 schools, 41,500 students, and 5,100 employees in the school system. The Union County Board of Education voted to keep masks optional in July, and since, has faced heated criticism. In its meeting last...

    *** Youngkin has pulled even or ahead in some polls, and the formerly confident Democrats are beginning to panic. Now they want to change the election rules in the middle of the game: [T]he Democrat-dominated Fairfax Board of Supervisors has asked Gov. Ralph Northam to waive the witness signature requirement that Virginia law stipulates for all absentee ballots. Board Chairman Jeffrey McKay insists that the waiver is necessary due to the threat of COVID-19, yet cases are declining. This is the same fraud that the Democrats perpetrated in something like 15 states in the 2020 election. Using covid as an...
  • Social media exposure during lockdown may have triggered emotional overeating due to heightened anxiety

    PsyPost ^ | October 103, 2021 | Beth Ellwood
    New research published in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being sheds light on how personality, social media exposure, and anxiety interact to influence people’s eating behavior during the pandemic. The findings point to a pathway whereby high neuroticism paves the way for greater anxiety in response to social media exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in turn, increased emotional overeating. The premise for the study came from evidence suggesting that the pandemic has coincided with changes in people’s eating behavior. This link may be unsurprising, since anxiety has increased worldwide during the pandemic, and negative emotions like anxiety can...

    In February of 2013, skywatchers around the world turned their attention toward asteroid 2012 DA14, a cosmic rock about 150 feet (50 meters) in diameter that was going to fly closer to Earth than the spacecraft that bring us satellite TV. Little did they realize as they prepared for the once-in-several-decades event that another bit of celestial debris was hurtling toward Earth, with a more direct heading. On Feb. 15, 2013, the Chelyabinsk meteor, a roughly 62-foot (19 meter)-diameter asteroid exploded over the city of Chelyabinsk, Russia, as it entered Earth's atmosphere at a shallow angle. The blast shattered windows...

    “Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4). Union with Christ means participation in His death, burial, and resurrection. Believers are united with Christ not only in His life, but also in His death. When believers come to faith in Christ, they symbolically share in His death, dying to sin in order to live to God (Rom. 6:10-11). That reality has profound implications. Having died to the old life of...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is reportedly removing a statue of Thomas Jefferson from City Hall’s Council chambers where it has stood for the past 187 years. “The city’s Public Design Commission — comprised of mayoral appointees — has listed ‘the long term loan’ of the 1833 painted plaster statue of the Declaration of Independence author to the New-York Historical Society on its ‘consent’ agenda for Monday,” the New York Post reported Wednesday. The designation meant the statue’s removal has not been scheduled for public debate, and the design commission would vote on de Blasio’s move once it...

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that the NFL should “rehire” Colin Kaepernick to make up for former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden’s emails. Behar said, “The scandal at the NFL keeps getting worse. Raiders coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign after years of his racist, homophobic and misogynist emails were found while investing the toxic work environment in yet another organization, The Washington football team.” Co-host Sara Haines said, “This was troping at the lowest level. We can’t say these words. We were reminded 15 times not to,. But most of us don’t...
