  • Knife-Wielding Ma’Khia Bryant’s High School Stealthily Adds Her To Honor Roll After Mother Claimed She Was An “Honor Roll Student”

    04/30/2021 10:26:34 AM PDT · by A.M. Smith · 75 replies
    The high school of the knife-wielding teen shot by police while attacking another woman quietly added her to their honor roll after her mother had claimed she was an “honor roll student”. Independence High School in Columbus, Ohio updated the honor roll list on its website to show that Ma’Khia Bryant had recently earned honor roll status for the past nine-week quarter. But the update only happened after inquiries from The College Fix. “Yes, she was an honor roll student and has been described by her educators as a very driven and engaged student who wanted to grow and be...

    CHICAGO (AP) — The days of paying cash on the Illinois Tollway are gone forever. The tollway announced Thursday it is permanently eliminating cash toll collections and will accept only I-Pass, E-ZPass or online payments. Customers unable to pay online can pay by check or money order. The move comes nearly a year after the tollway suspended cash tolls in mid-March because of the coronavirus outbreak. The tollway also said it will begin a program in May to help low-income drivers by waiving deposits on I-PASS transponders and adding $20 in tolls to people with household incomes up to 2...

    Merriam-Webster, the dictionary company that has built a reputation for pandering to the “woke” crowd and embracing leftist government mandates, has quietly played their own role in pushing the Covid-19 “vaccines” out to the general public. They added a new definition to their listing for the word “vaccines” to match what’s currently being offered to the American people to fight the coronavirus.NOQ Report first discovered this by accident. It started with an innocuous Tweet I posted and a comment that followed.Isn't whether or not these are vaccines a matter of definition? It is to Merriam-Webster, at least. pic.twitter.com/oSA0FVIFLy— Pete Finnegan...
  • White House Damage Control After Biden Calls Border Situation a 'Crisis'

    Last week, many of us were surprised when President Joe Biden used the word “crisis” to describe the situation at the southern border. “We’re going to increase the number [of refugees]. The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended up on the border with young people. We couldn’t do two things at once. ”After months of refusing to call it a “crisis,” this seemed like a stunning admission that may have indicated that things were about to change, that the Biden administration would finally treat the situation at the border as a crisis. So...

    CEO Albert Bourla said people will "likely" need a booster dose of a Covid-19 vaccine within 12 months of getting fully vaccinated. His comments were made public Thursday but were taped April 1. He also said it's possible people will need to get vaccinated against the virus annually. "It is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus," he told CNBC's Bertha Coombs during an event with CVS Health.

    Twitter reportedly censored sports journalist Jason Whitlock over his criticism of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors over her purchase of a $1.4 million home in a mostly white neighborhood of Los Angeles. The purchase of multiple high-end homes by Khan-Cullors, who once described herself as a “trained Marxist,” was widely reported in the media over the weekend, making the front page of the New York Post under the headline “Black Lives Manors.” In addition to the $1.4 mil L.A. home, Khan-Cullors reportedly bought three other homes worth a combined total of over $1.5 million. In response to the story,...

    The metastasis of the “woke” ideology is the most comprehensive threat facing the American republic. It is appallingly totalitarian, insofar as the woke wield the levers of cancel culture to suppress all dissident speech, root out all wrongthink and achieve by sheer force an intellectual homogeneity. It is outright racist, insofar as intersectionality and identity politics, to say nothing of vogue concepts such as “critical race theory” and “racial equity,” overtly discriminate on the basis of race and thus undermine the preeminent American ethos of equal protection under the law. What’s more, that universality often takes the more insidious form...

    Detectives were investigating racially biased Instagram posts by a Glen Rock High School student when the teenage bigot struck again, this time targeting another classmate over gender identity on Zoom, authorities said. Detectives were a month into their investigation of racial bias when administrators at the high school showed them “questionable comments” entered during a school Zoom session, Police Chief Dean Ackermann said. The comment “appeared to target another student over their gender identity,” the chief said Monday. Using information provided by the teenage victims and the school’s IT department, Detective Sgt. Jim Calaski and Detective Lucas Doney identified the...

    Tech firms funded by the British government are developing facial recognition systems that could be used by private businesses, such as pubs, as coronavirus vaccine passports. The scheme being developed by the tech companies iProov and Mvine — which have received a £75,000 government grant — would see companies employ software that would cross-reference the face of British patrons to vaccination and coronavirus testing databases before entering their establishment. The chief executive of iProov, Andrew Bud, told The Times that other vaccine passport systems are ineffective compared to facial recognition technology.

    The Biden administration seems oblivious to the rapid and dangerous deterioration of U.S.-Russia relations. Putin was already vexed over a host of other incidents. On January 26, Biden criticized Nord Stream 2 for "making Europe dependent on Russia for its energy." On February 19, in his speech at the Munich Security Conference, Biden accused Moscow of working to weaken NATO and the E.U. and promised to "resist these attempts." Then there is Biden's move to see new sanctions leveled against Russia over the poisoning of Alexei Navalny. There are also numerous economic issues. In a deal sealed in August 2020...

    The European Commission on Wednesday proposed the issuing of COVID-19 immunization certificates to allow for free travel within the bloc’s member states. The EU is hoping to revive the travel sector, but there are fears over the fairness of such certificates amid a slow vaccine rollout. Dubbed “the Digital Green Certificate,” the proposal is set to facilitate the movement of people from one EU member state to another. The certificate will provide information on COVID-19 vaccination, recovery and test results. The EU will also coordinate with the World Health Organization for the certificates to be recognized outside Europe. …

    By now every person awake, as opposed to “woke,” knows the dangers of Big Tech. Through algorithmic manipulation, de-platforming and other noxious off-shoots of the tyrannical cancel culture these companies are changing history, reversing freedoms hard won since the Magna Carta, while having an unconscious numbing effect on our brains that eventually would render us a race of drones. Something has to be done. The federal government seems to be able to do no more than hold hearings. Those that might actually want to do something, like Sens. Hawley and Blackburn, are thwarted by the Democrats who, though they pay...

    Amazon . com Inc. said it recently removed a three-year-old book about transgender issues from its platforms because it decided not to sell books that frame transgender and other sexual identities as mental illnesses. The company explained its decision in a letter Thursday to Republican Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, Mike Lee of Utah, Mike Braun of Indiana and Josh Hawley of Missouri, which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

We call it a ‘freedom bracelet’ because we are not locking anybody up, but rather giving them the opportunity to go home.
