    The world's ten richest people, including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Bill Gates, have seen their collective wealth increase by half a trillion dollars since the start of the Covid pandemic, according to a new report. The business magnates could even pay to vaccinate the entire world with their profits from the last year, the Oxfam study claims. The anti-poverty campaigners used figures from the Forbes 2020 Billionaire List and wealth data from Credit Suisse to investigate the financial impact of the pandemic on the world's wealthiest. Oxfam said the richest 1,000 people have already managed to recoup the losses...

    Remember way back in August, when folks started raising a big stink over the fact that 94% of reported COVID-19 deaths involved at least one other comorbidity?The CDC now claims that 94% of all coronavirus deaths were supplementary, meaning, the person had co-morbidities. Less than 10,000 Americans have died from Covid-19 alone. #Coronavirus is and always has been a hoax. Democrats masked & impoverished America to rig an election.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) September 1, 2020Well, though the overwhelming prevalence of comorbidities on death certificates fingering COVID-19 does, indeed, also finger the CDC for not just cooking the books, but doing...

    More than 20,000 National Guard troops protected Joe Biden’s virtual inauguration last Wednesday. Then entire event was held behind barbed wire fences and numerous checkpoints. The regime feared no one would show up to see the confused man they were about to inaugurate as president. Following the inauguration 5,000 National Guard troops were then sent to a cold parking garage to sleep. This was after the photo-ops with the DC lawmakers. This past weekend we found out thousands of National Guard troops are being asked to remain in Washington DC until March. The lawmakers in charge want to seal off...

    In a podcast with Hillary Clinton, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) sharply criticized opponents of abortion. "First they helped Trump win the 2016 presidential election because he promised to protect the lives of unborn babies," she said. "Now that voters have massively elected the most pro-choice president in American history, pro-lifers stubbornly resist the unity our nation so desperately needs." "It is one thing to privately hold onto warped values out of loyalty to out-dated concepts of morality," the Speaker contended. "It is quite another to resist the new reality. In a democracy the determination of what is right or...

    MADISON, WI — Tax and spend Tony does it again — this time looking to tax the small businesses his administration has driven to the brink of extinction with lockdowns and other COVID-19 health edicts. Gov. Tony Evers’ Department of Revenue last week quietly issued guidance that ignores federal COVID-19 relief legislation language on tax liability and aims to tax tens of thousands of Wisconsin businesses that received funding through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). “Gov. Tony Evers and the DOR are looking to skim the federal money that came down to our small businesses so they can grow the...

    President Biden will sign a fresh round of executive orders during his first full week in office, including actions loosening restrictions around abortion and immigration. Biden will issue and order to rescind the Mexico City policy, which prohibits U.S. funding for foreign organizations that perform or promote abortions. The administration also dodged last week on whether Biden plans to scrap the Hyde Amendment, which bars taxpayer funding of elective abortions under Medicaid.

    Ordered to vacate the corridors of the Capitol building after Rep. Will Keating (D-MA) complained that he saw a couple of the National Guard troops at a Dunkin Donuts “without wearing the masks mandated by President Biden,” former President Donald Trump’s offer to let them hang out at his DC hotel incited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) to add another charge to her impeachment case against him. “Mr. Trump is no longer in charge of the federal government,” Pelosi ranted. “He has no authority to offer accommodations of any sort to these troops. His doing so is further proof of...

    Breaking News: Joe Biden is a liar.That’s a fact that’s been common knowledge for the majority of his career. Sure, he lies in a way that is acceptable to the beltway cocktail circuit, but he lies nonetheless. His lies are also far more consequential than most, usually dealing directly with major policy concerns.Case in point? Biden is already admitting that his biggest campaign promise was a complete scam. Remember when he claimed he was going to “shut down the virus” if elected? Yeah, about that..@JoeBiden: "There is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the...

    A U.S. doctor who is part of the World Health Organization team investigating the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic discussed his work manipulating bat-based coronaviruses in labs just weeks before the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan. Dr. Peter Daszak, a close associate with China’s premier bat-based coronavirus researcher and a key figure in directing taxpayer funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, explained how easy it was to alter coronaviruses during a podcast interview filmed Dec. 9, 2019.

    For me John 1-1 is the most powerful verse of the Bible. Equating Logos with God underscores the supreme importance of free speech and honesty. I feel the need for more of both in this month where Big Tech deplatformed a sitting president and where others rush to convict him for inciting insurrection when he said “protest peacefully”. Truth matters to me.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended President Joe Biden for quickly violating his own mandate that Americans wear masks on federal property, justifying his actions by explaining that the president was "celebrating." Biden has caught scrutiny from critics for violating his very first executive order requiring masks and social distancing on federal property within hours of signing it after he took office Wednesday, when he was seen on camera maskless and crowding in for pictures with his entirely mask-free family at the Lincoln Memorial. Celebrities who spoke and performed for Biden's inaugural festivities were also seen violating the mandate...

I, a disabled Navy veteran, donated to a classmate, friend, and fellow veterans benefit for his medical care. YOU, FACEBOOK, took a "fee" out of that donation. So, my donation wasn't a donation, it was a money making opportunity for you. I will be calling my financial institution at 12 Noon on 22 / Jan / 2021 (TOMORRROW) and refuting the charge if you do not either reverse the fee, or cancel...
  • On Very First Day Of Biden Presidency, WHO Changes COVID Guidelines To Lower Diagnoses Rates

    01/21/2021 5:28:43 PM PST · by A.M. Smith · 27 replies
    On the exact same day that Joe Biden was inaugurated into office, the World Health Organization tightened their criteria for who is diagnosed as a positive COVID-19 case. This has to be a coincidence, right? I mean, what are the odds? Now, a single positive PCR test for the virus isn’t going to cut it anymore. For some reason, as of inauguration day, the organization decided that those tests for the virus we’ve been relentlessly assured are the gold standard for detecting infection are, in reality, just a mere “aid for diagnosis.”

    I don't know how many of you are into biking, but those of us who are, I thought I would show a neat product for the casual bicyclist. It's an electrical conversion for nearly any standard bicycle. It gives enough power to equate to leg power for about an hour. It's meant for those who wouldn't mind biking for up to an hour in one direction before needing to recharge it. I just think it's a neat niche product.

    Operation Rescue, an organization dedicated to saving the lives of children who might otherwise be killed by abortion, issued a report titled The Status of American Abortion Facilities in 2020. During the past year, 45 abortion facilities throughout the nation either closed of stopped performing abortions. Missouri's last such facility closed making it the only state without any abortion facility. Missouri women wanting the procedure are now referred to a facility 16 miles away in Illinois. President Biden's nominee for Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, warned abortion opponents "to not get so giddy over...

    Early in the pandemic, “trust the science!” could actually be used in a debate without attracting derisive laughter. But as the flip-flops, mistakes and, yes, lies have accumulated, a consensus seems to be forming that the health care authorities are no more trustworthy than the people running Congress or the Fed.For proof, let’s start with vitamin D, which sure seems to lessen the severity of coronavirus infections. As the chart below illustrates (couldn’t find the source, but google “covid vitamin D” and you’ll find lots of studies that track with this data), people with higher levels of vitamin D in...
