    Coronavirus infections did not slow down and may have increased instead in the first days of the latest national lockdown, a major ongoing study has found. Researchers also said it will be weeks before the vaccine rollout has a substantial effect. The study from REACT-1 at Imperial College in London said: "During the initial 10 days of the third COVID-19 lockdown… prevalence of COVID-19 was very high with no evidence of decline." Programme director Professor Paul Elliot went further, saying: "Our data are showing worrying suggestions of a recent uptick in infections which we will continue to monitor closely." The...
  • America’s “War on Terror” Is Going to Morph into the “War on Domestic Terror” (Vanity)

    With everything that has happened over the last four years, and especially since the November election, I think most FReepers understand where our country is heading. For those who don’t yet fully understand, I believe they will be coming up the awareness curve pretty quickly as the Left continues to implement their plans to fundamentally transform America. I believe a key priority of the Left will be to fundamentally transform the focus of America’s “War on Terror.” America’s original "War on Terror" commencing in September 2001, focused the American people to rally to defend against and/or defeat "radical Islam." Of...
  • America Ruled By Fraud - Day 6

    01/12/2021 9:46:33 PM PST · by Sense · 49 replies
    America Ruled by Fraud - Day 6 As proofs of massive, ubiquitous, systemic election fraud continue to mount, following the absurdity of Congress pretending to legitimacy in a sham process, wrongly pretending an inability to act rightly, Congress truly refusing to do anything other than accept the known to be fraudulent products of obviously fraudulent elections, leaves the country, and the world, holding its breath. The most obvious evidence, of course... is the most obvious... yet never mentioned. Free and fair elections, to exist, require we have freedom of the press, and freedom of speech. Today, we have neither. The...

    Reagan: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you and good evening. The sponsor has been identified, but unlike most television programs, the performer hasn't been provided with a script. As a matter of fact, I have been permitted to choose my own words and discuss my own ideas regarding the choice that we face in the next few weeks. I have spent most of my life as a Democrat. I recently have seen fit to follow another course. I believe that the issues confronting us cross party lines. Now, one side in this campaign has been telling us that...

    The Question: What is the US Government's key purpose? The Answer: To make sure we're left alone. Now, it’s not only to leave us alone... that's just part of it. The Bill of Rights is a list of specific ways that the government itself is specifically directed to leave us alone. But it's much more than that. The Constitution – first in the world of its kind - was written to design a government that is only big enough - not too big, just big enough - to be able to help us, the people, to be left alone. Not...

    A printing company in Maryland saw the photo on Twitter Wednesday night: an employee roaming the halls of the U.S. Capitol with a company badge around his neck. He was fired the next day. Others are facing similar repercussions at work for their participation in Wednesday’s riot at the U.S. Capitol. Some business owners are being trashed on social media and their establishments boycotted, while rank-and-file employees at other businesses have been fired. The printing company, Navistar Direct Marketing, declined to name the worker but said it can’t offer employment to people “demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and...

    Thomas Jefferson said: “What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.” Well, we now have the name of a...

    Americans fled big cities in droves to escape the coronavirus pandemic — and many of them are staying, permanently or indefinitely. But escape means something different depending on whom you ask. The top destination cities as of October and November were Sacramento, California; Las Vegas; Phoenix; Austin, Texas; and Atlanta, according to the real estate site Redfin. Interest is particularly high for Austin, where double the number of people moved this year compared to last year. Some South and Southwestern states, which had fewer lockdown restrictions, added people fleeing more restrictive counties and states for both economic and ideological reasons....

    President Donald Trump on Christmas Eve repeated his concerns over Big Tech censorship a day after he vetoed a defense-spending bill over Congress’s failure to remove liability protections for Silicon Valley’s social media companies. “Twitter is going wild with their flags, trying hard to suppress even the truth. Just shows how dangerous they are, purposely stifling free speech. Very dangerous for our Country. Does Congress know that this is how Communism starts?” Trump said in a Twitter post on Thursday night. “Cancel Culture at its worst. End Section 230!” he said. Trump and his administration have repeatedly underscored the risks...

    When the church doors open, only white people will be allowed inside. That’s the message the Asatru Folk Assembly in Murdock, Minnesota, is sending after being granted a conditional use permit to open a church there and practice its pre-Christian religion that originated in northern Europe. Despite a council vote officially approving the permit this month, residents are pushing back against the decision. “I think they thought they could fly under the radar in a small town like this, but we’d like to keep the pressure on them,” said Peter Kennedy, a longtime Murdock resident. “Racism is not welcome here."...

    “But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you – and why?” “Prior to capitalism, the way people amassed great wealth was by looting, plundering and enslaving their fellow man. Capitalism made it possible to become wealthy by serving your fellow man.” “Democracy and liberty are not the same. Democracy is little more than mob rule, while liberty refers to the sovereignty of the individual.” “The public good is promoted best by...
  • Will You Bend the Knee? Or Will You Stand Up and Live Free?

    Americans have grown dangerously accustomed to tyranny as of late. Whether that tyranny’s source is the incompetent federal government’s agents, such as Dr. Fauci, tyranny from hypocritical blue state governors, or the tyrannical actions of the Big Tech monopolies, Americans don’t resist anymore. They just bend the knee and go along with it. When the government says to stay at home, most people stay at home. If some blabbering fool issues a diktat from city hall that demands businesses remain closed, then most small business owners keep their businesses shuttered, even if that means their life’s work and wealth is...

    A group of Pennsylvania bars and restaurants is taking legal action against Gov. Tom Wolf and Health Secretary Dr. over new coronavirus rules that will prohibit indoor dining during the holiday season. Co-counsels for the group filed a pair of court documents Friday, Troy Freedman, a lawyer for the businesses, told Fox News. One was a petition for review, a required first step when filing suit against state officials under Pennsylvania law, Freedman said. The other is seeking an injunction that would enjoin the governor from enforcing his order, which he issued last week. It went into effect on Dec....

    Two San Diego strip clubs can remain open and make their own determinations about providing a safe environment for dancers and patrons during the pandemic, a judge ruled Wednesday. The decision dealt a setback to Gov. Gavin Newsom's health order that calls for such establishments to be shuttered. The scope of San Diego Superior Court Judge Joel Wohlfeil's preliminary injunction appeared to extend far beyond the two clubs that sued the state to potentially all of the thousands of restaurants in San Diego County, the state's second-largest county after Los Angeles. On Wednesday night, Supervisor Jim Desmond tweeted that the...

An international human rights group has warned that the majority of nations across the globe have implemented COVID related restrictions that have severely eroded the liberties of their citizens. The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), based in Sweden, reports that 61 per cent of countries have used restrictions “that were concerning from a democracy and human rights perspective.” ‘These [restrictions] violated democratic standards because they were either disproportionate, illegal, indefinite or unnecessary in relation to the health threat,” the group...

    Paris (AFP) - Measures imposed by governments to fight the Covid-19 pandemic have squeezed civil liberties worldwide, with authoritarian regimes seeking to exploit the restrictions as a way to shore up their sometimes shaky control on fast-changing societies, rights groups say. Demonstrations have been outlawed, elections postponed, and activists subject to even greater repression in a health emergency the political impact of which will still be felt when the pandemic is over. In Guinea in west Africa, the government has banned all demonstrations until further notice, citing the fight against Covid. Hungary in central Europe is under a state of...
