    Nancy Pelosi is still keeping several dozens (hundreds ?) of her political prisoners behind bars, most in isolation for 23 hours per day, none allowed basic sanitation, barbers or cleaning, clean clothes and representation. Are they allowed mail? Christmas cards? If mailed Christmas cards, how are the cards or letters addressed, and how do we know if those cards are even delivered?

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation honored Democratic Rep. Jared Huffman of California three years ago with what it calls its "Emperor Has No Clothes Award," named after the story by Hans Christian Andersen. "In the story, two weavers con a gullible emperor by selling him expensive cloth they claim is so exquisite only the very wise can see it," said the foundation. "The emperor parades before his cowed subjects in his imaginary finery, until an astute child calls out: 'But the emperor has no clothes!' "Religion, the Foundation contends, has a similar imaginary base," it explained. "The award is reserved...

    Steve Kirsch of the COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund permanently was banned from Twitter because it suggests that the “vaccines” being administered for the plandemic™ are causing people to develop prion disease. Before the previous administration introduced the shots as part of Operation Warp Speed, there were almost no cases of prion disease. However, that is rapidly changing. (My uncle died of it, so I am not unfamiliar) “There is no doubt the mRNA vaccines are causing prion diseases,” Kirsch writes. “People didn’t have these diseases before the shot and suddenly they develop them after the shot. There is no other...
  • Shocking Excerpt From RFK Jr.’s New Book, The Real Anthony Fauci, Exposes Big Pharma Pressure to Suppress Ivermectin

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s new book The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health has exposed criminal levels of medical establishment corruption. The Amazon and New York Times best seller provides a glimpse into the war on health and civil liberties waged by parasitic government bureaucrats like Anthony Fauci. It also dives into the unimaginable influence pharmaceutical companies have in directing public health policies. One excerpt from the book highlights the diabolical smear campaign waged against ivermectin. As I’ve noted, ivermectin has shown tremendous efficacy against COVID-19 in places like Uttar...

  • New 'stealth' version of Omicron variant detected in Queensland

    The Guardian ^ | Wed 8 Dec 2021
    Scientists say they have identified a “stealth” version of Omicron that cannot be distinguished from other variants using the PCR tests that public health officials deploy to gain a quick picture of its spread around the world. The finding came as the number of cases of the original Omicron variant detected in the UK rose by 101 to 437 in a single day and Scotland announced a return to working from home. The stealth variant has many mutations in common with standard Omicron, but it lacks a particular genetic change that allows lab-based PCR tests to be used as a...

    The left wants liberty for pregnant women but tells the rest of us to pound salt. On Monday, lame-duck New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced, "Omicron is here, and it looks very transmissible." So, de Blasio, ignoring scientific evidence that current COVID-19 vaccines will not stop the variant from spreading, decreed all private-sector workers in businesses of all sizes must be vaccinated by Dec. 27. The mandate also applies to children as young as 5, who must take the vaccine to participate in school activities such as band or be taken to a restaurant or movie theater. There...

    U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed the three-judge panel decision in Duncan v. Becerra, the ban on magazines that hold over 10 rounds. The opinion was released on November 30, 2021.Update: The case nomenclature has changed from Duncan v. Becerra to Duncan v. Bonta, because of the change in the California Attorney General.At the end of March, in 2019, Judge Roger T. Benitez wrote a well-reasoned opinion that found the California ban on magazines of over 10 rounds to be an unconstitutional infringement on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The case was...

    The Biden administration is hosting, in upcoming days, a "Summit for Democracy," in which 110 nations worldwide have been invited to participate in this global virtual event. The U.S. State Department notes that the purpose is "setting forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal and to tackle the greatest threats faced by democracies through collective action." The Biden administration lists on the White House website as among its priorities "Restoring America's Global Standing." This summit will accomplish exactly the opposite. The nations of the world will see on display that those at the helm of leadership in America have barely...

    Source: Townhall MediaIn the last week, alarms started going off about Vice President Kamala Harris facing an embarrassing staff exodus by her communications team, including well-known strategist Symone Sanders. By Saturday morning, Dec. 4, The Washington Post reported on the front page that this morale problem "reignites leadership concerns." How can she take over for Biden? The Post buried the edgy point right off the front page. "Critics scattered over two decades point to an inconsistent and at times degrading principal who burns through seasoned staff members who have succeeded in other demanding, high-profile positions." Anonymous ex-staffers who worked for...

    Attempts by China or Russia to expand their territory by invasions of Taiwan or Ukraine, respectively, would be serious mistakes with severe consequences, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday at The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit. President Biden’s warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin on a secure video call Tuesday about the consequences of a potential invasion of Ukraine should “affect President Putin’s calculus going forward,” Mr. Blinken said.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to extend his country’s close defense ties with India this week on a visit that highlights the challenges facing the U.S. as it courts Indian assistance in countering China. Mr. Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi are expected to sign agreements including one extending military technical cooperation until 2031 and another to produce more than 500,000 Russian-designed rifles in India, according to officials involved in the visit.

    MOSCOW — Russia's defense chief on Tuesday signed a roadmap for closer military ties with China, pointing to increasingly frequent U.S. strategic bomber flights near both countries' borders. During a video call, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Chinese counterpart Wei Fenghe “expressed a shared interest in stepping up strategic military exercises and joint patrols by Russia and China,” according to the Russian Defense Ministry. “China and Russia have been strategic partners for many years,” Shoigu said. “Today, in conditions of increasing geopolitical turbulence and growing conflict potential in various parts of the world, the development of our interaction is...

    One theme of Democratic control of Washington has been frustration, especially among the party's progressive wing and its cheerleaders in the media, that Democrats have not been able to enact their progressive dream agenda from the 2020 campaign. Dreams such as nationalizing the administration of elections in ways favorable to Democratic candidates, packing the Supreme Court and eliminating the Senate filibuster. Now, after Wednesday's abortion arguments before the Supreme Court, that frustration is mounting. The court has a 6-3 Republican-appointed majority that might overturn Roe v. Wade. How, some Democrats ask, could that have been allowed to happen? Republicans might...

    Hate crimes against Christianity and its followers in Europe — formerly and for centuries the guardian and disseminator of Christ's teachings — are at an all-time high. According to a recent report, at least a quarter of all hate crimes registered in Europe in 2020 were anti-Christian in nature — representing a 70-percent increase in comparison to 2019. Christianity is, furthermore, the religion most targeted in hate crimes, with Judaism at a close second. Worse, the true number of hate crimes against Christians is likely even higher. As the Nov. 16, 2021 report by the Organization for Security and Co-operation...

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy is measuring drapes for the speaker’s office, expecting to move in after the 2022 election. Hey Kev, leadership is keeping your caucus together so as not to hand Democrats big wins (i.e., the $1.2 trillion non-infrastructure bill). Leadership also is not voting with Democrats on bills that invade Americans’ medical privacy (i.e., the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act). McCarthy exemplifies the big divide between the “America First” MAGA base and Establishment Republicans. This is why an expected Red Wave has the potential to turn into a Red Puddle. The latest and most problematic divide between the MAGA base...

    Monday morning, as I did my morning bicycle ride (I live in a safe neighborhood), I listened to Breitbart News host Alex Marlowe interview John Nolte, another Breitbart personality about COVID vaccination hesitancy. By the end of the interview, they’d wandered through several logical fallacies that need to be exposed so people can accurately balance vaccines versus treatments. Marlowe and Nolte quoted data purporting to show that Washington state counties that Trump won have much higher COVID death rates than counties that Biden won. Vaccination rates are blamed for the difference. Marlowe went on to declare that it’s been proven...

    A video obtained by ITV shows senior No 10 staff joking about holding a Christmas party - days after one was held there during lockdown. The PM's then-press secretary Allegra Stratton is asked by colleagues about reports of a party, as they rehearse a news conference in December last year. In jokey exchanges, she says: "This fictional party was a business meeting and it was not socially distanced." Downing Street continues to insist no party took place. But a source previously confirmed to the BBC that a party did take place there on 18 December, with "several dozen" people in...
