    The government of Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was set to collectively resign on Friday over years of mismanagement of childcare subsidies, lawmakers said. Rutte was to inform King Willem-Alexander of the decision and hold a press conference during which he was expected to outline how the government will manage the emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic while in caretaker status. A new cabinet will be formed after parliamentary elections that had already been set for March 17. The decision follows a parliamentary inquiry last month that found bureaucrats at the tax service, with government oversight, had driven thousands of...

    Conservative attorney John Eastman will retire from his role at Chapman University immediately, the school announced Wednesday, after the professor’s support for President Trump’s efforts to overturn the election results sparked backlash among his colleagues. Faculty at the Orange County, Calif. school demanded that Eastman, who challenged the election results on Trump’s behalf, be ousted from his position after he made claims that the election was fraudulent at a rally at the White House on January 6, hours before supporters of President Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol while Congress met to tally the electoral votes.
  • 'I'm alive,' says Frenchwoman fighting official ruling that she died

    Sitting in her kitchen in France, Jeanne Pouchain remembers the day she discovered that she was dead. It was when she read an official letter from the court of appeal in the nearby city of Lyon stating that she had died and asking her relatives to pay money she was alleged to have owed. “My problem is that I’ve been declared dead, said the former boss of a cleaning firm from the rural commune of Saint-Joseph in eastern France. The ruling that Pouchain was dead was made in 2017, and since then she has been trying to have it overturned,...

    So far, the rollout of the COVID vaccine has been an embarrassing mess. There are different rules at different distribution locations, and sometimes they seem to change randomly. And to complicate matters, we're learning about unused, leftover doses. So who gets them? Or do they get thrown out?

    Parler CEO Mark Matze said today that his company have been dropped by virtually all of their business alliances after Amazon, Apple and Google ended their agreements with the social media service. “Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” Matze said today on Fox News. Matze conceded that the bans could put the company out of business while raising free speech issues, calling it “an assault on everybody.” “They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our...
  • The worst days for America seem to be arriving soon. What do we do?

    We will soon live in an America where our government, our "news" media and the technology that millions of Americans rely on to communicate will be under the control of a single political party and viewpoint: The Left. The people on the Left, from Nancy Pelosi to Jack Dorsey, hold us in contempt. Many of them literally hate us. The hate our nation. Many of them would be more than happy to throw the Constitution into a trash can. We have very little, if anything, in common with these people. They have been attacking the President of the United States...

    The Declaration of the People of the States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their...

    Democrat Tulsi Gabbard ripped Nancy Pelosi’s new rules on “gendered-language” this week; telling Fox News the entire enterprise shows “how out of touch” the Speaker is with “reality.” “It’s the height of hypocrisy for people who claim to be the champions of rights for women to deny the very biological existence of women,” Gabbard said.

    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE DEMOCRATS SEIZE CONTROL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ver. 3.0With the Presidential steal 99.9% complete, and the 2 Senator seats in Georgia going to the rats by a combination of fraud & lower (R) turnout, here is a condensed look at some of what we will face in the near future when the socialists/communists/marxists/globalists/hate America crowd seizes full control of our federal government, and therefore control of our lives in the "United" States of America. And what happened at the Capital Building on 01.06.2021 (whether it was 10% or 50% antifa incited/perpetrated) will give them greater resolve...

    CVS Health said Wednesday that it’s on track to complete the first round of Covid-19 vaccine shots at nursing homes across the country by Jan. 25. The federal government partnered with CVS and Walgreens to administer the shots to residents and staff in long-term care facilities across the country. CVS said it’s on target to meet its original goal set for the nursing homes it’s already partnered with. CVS said it’s now administering shots to nursing home residents and staff in 49 states and the District of Columbia. In addition to nursing homes, the company will also vaccinate residents and...

    HARRISBURG — The new session of the Pennsylvania Senate got off to a chaotic start Tuesday, with Republicans refusing to seat a Democratic senator whose election victory has been certified by state officials. Amid high emotions and partisan fingerpointing, Republicans also took the rare step of removing the Democratic lieutenant governor, John Fetterman, from presiding over the session. They apparently did so because they did not believe Fetterman was following the rules and recognizing their legislative motions.

    AUK court has rejected Washington’s aggressive attempt to drag Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the United States to face unprecedented charges of espionage, but that doesn’t mean the travails of the free information outlaw are over. Nor does it stop the chilling effect that his prosecution has had on free speech or the press. “This is a loaded gun pointed right at journalists,” charged Marjorie Cohn, law professor and former president of the National Lawyers Guild, speaking on a panel Monday.
  • Immigration Politics: Wishful Thinking?

    Newsweek ^ | 1/5/2021 | Pedro Gonzales
    All politics have consequences. But few political issues are as consequential as immigration because it alone raises that all-important question: "Who are we?" Immigration policy determines whether America exists as a coherent political unit, a home to a people sharing an identity and national destiny, or as "only a geographical expression" in the fashion of pre-unification Italy, where principalities and powers vied over a space known incidentally as the Italian peninsula. Rending Italy from the hands of petty princes formed an essential part of Niccolò Machiavelli's life work, for only a unified Italy could resist evils from within and without....

    (Note: Paywall is harish) Pennsylvania election data shows that over 432,000 votes were removed from President Donald Trump during the November election, data scientists say. According to an analysis by the Data Integrity Group, obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times, votes for Trump—from both Election Day and mail-in ballots—were removed from the totals in at least 15 counties. Time-series election data shows Trump’s votes decrementing in various counties at numerous time points instead of increasing as would be expected under normal circumstances. The group said that Election Day vote removals happened during the vote tabulation process in at least 15...

    It took six months of rioting and millions of dollars in property damage for Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler to order increase law enforcement action against Antifa. Several businesses were damaged during riots on New Year’s Eve including two Starbucks shops, a Chase Bank, a Pandora Jewelers, a Ben Bridge Jewelers, and multiple local businesses, such as the Portland Wine Company and an office space, according to the Portland Police Bureau. The riots led to three arrests. “My good faith efforts at de-escalation have been met with ongoing violence and even scorn from radical Antifa and anarchists,” Wheeler said in a...

    The year 2020 was tough for everyone, children and adults alike. Most school-age kids were forced to attend school virtually, at least for part of the year. This, combined with lockdowns, caused screen time use to surge. More than usual, parents may fear kids aren’t learning well or are being exposed to things they aren’t yet mature enough to handle. On this, their intuition may be correct: 2020 saw an increase in LGBTQ-friendly marketing targeted at kids.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said "I'm sure" some individual institutions will make coronavirus vaccinations mandatory, while it is "quite possible" that the COVID-19 vaccine could become a required travel vaccine when visiting other countries. Speaking to Newsweek, America's top infectious disease expert said: "Everything will be on the table for discussion" when asked if he will be discussing the possibility of introducing COVID-19 vaccine passports and potential mandatory vaccinations at a local level, including in schools, in his role as chief medical adviser to President-elect Biden.
