    Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 7 Apr 2021 | Ann Coulter
    Apparently, no one is watching the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer on trial for the murder of George Floyd. Otherwise, the media couldn’t get away with their spectacular lying to the public about how the prosecution is killing it. It’s quite the opposite. In fact, in less than a week, the prosecution’s theory of the crime has subtly shifted from MURDER! to “failed to provide what we would say, in retrospect, would be a full and complete duty of care during the one- to three-minute interval between Floyd’s resisting the police to his dying, as a...
  • Group of 24 Scientists Issue Open Letter Detailing Incorrect and Contradictory Claims in WHO Origins Report Used to Downplay Lab Leak Theory

    04/07/2021 6:37:51 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 9 replies
    A group of 24 scientists issued an open letter Wednesday demanding a full investigation into the origins of COVID-19 that includes a thorough examination into the possibility the virus could have escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China. The scientists said the World Health Organization’s report on the origins of the pandemic, which concluded the lab leak hypothesis was extremely unlikely, “failed to reach some most basic standards of credible analysis and assessment,” noting that the report contained 12 incorrect, disputed, contradictory and imprecise statements used to downplay the theory. “Well over a year after the initial outbreak, critical records...
  • Ballot review prompts concerns about election integrity

    Missoulian ^ | April 7, 2021 | John R Lott Jr.
    Montana got to see firsthand how well a mail-in election goes. If the results from Missoula County are any indication, it didn’t go well. Local state Rep. Brad Tschida conducted a review of Missoula votes with the assistance of the Missoula County Elections Office. He found 4,592 out of all 72,491 mail-in ballots did not have envelopes — 6.33% of the total. That is a real problem. It is against the law to count mail-in votes if there is no envelope. There is no way to match up signatures to verify if the vote is from a registered voter or...

    One in three COVID-19 survivors in a study of more than 230,000 mostly American patients were diagnosed with a brain or psychiatric disorder within six months, suggesting the pandemic could lead to a wave of mental and neurological problems, scientists said on Tuesday. Researchers who conducted the analysis said it was not clear how the virus was linked to psychiatric conditions such as anxiety and depression, but that these were the most common diagnoses among the 14 disorders they looked at. Post-COVID cases of stroke, dementia and other neurological disorders were rarer, the researchers said, but were still significant, especially...
  • New York’s vaccine passport program is already failing: Failure Imminent - The Cuomo-IBM idiocracy can't produce a good product.

    Liberty advocates, rejoice! The idiocracy is going to save us from another form of COVID tyranny. Thanks to a combination of bungling authoritarians and decaying legacy corporations, these entities are simply too incompetent to pull off a functioning vaccine passport program.New York’s rollout of its vaccine passport already has the markings of a five alarm dumpster fire. The New York State “Excelsior Pass” vaccine passport system, which was created by IBM, has so many issues that I wouldn’t be surprised if the program was scrapped altogether before the end of the calendar year. It has massive security flaws, a shrinking...
  • Michigan AG Says Sidney Powell’s Claim that ‘No Reasonable Person’ Would Believe Her Kraken Theories Is Exactly Why She Should Be Sanctioned

    Law And Crime ^ | April 7, 2021 | Adam Klasfeld
    Defending herself from more than $1 billion in liabilities from Dominion Voting Machines, lawyer Sidney Powell argued late last month that that “no reasonable person” would believe that her conspiracy theories were factual. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) cited that concession to argue that the pro-Trump lawyer’s meritless litigation is sanctionable. “These attorneys seemingly made statements they knew were misleading in an effort to further their false and destructive narrative,” Nessel wrote in a statement on Wednesday. “As lawyers, fidelity to the law is paramount. These individuals worked to further conspiracy theories in an effort to erode public trust...
  • Marjorie Taylor Greene cashes in on controversy, pulling in $3.2M while resisting calls to expel her from Congress

    Biz Pac Review ^ | 04/07/2021 | Robert Jonathan
    U.S. Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) appears to be cashing in on the controversy. The first-year lawmaker reportedly hauled in a massive $3.2 million in campaign donations from January through March 2021 primarily from small, grassroots contributors. What’s even more notable is that social media star Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.) reportedly only managed about $726,000 during the same time period in 2019 when she was new in Washington. Given that they face reelection every two years, members of Congress are constantly “dialing for dollars,” and the digital equivalent, for their own campaigns or (if they are in a safe, gerrymandered...

    Police have placed roadblocks and fencing around GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta in an effort to prevent worshippers from accessing the building. According to The Post Millennial, law enforcement officers descended upon the property early Wednesday morning. The exact reason for the blockade is unknown at this time. GraceLife made headlines earlier this year after the church's pastor, James Coates was jailed for holding in-person worship services amid ongoing pandemic restrictions. As CBN News has reported, after spending a month behind bars for violating the government's capacity mandates, Coates was released from jail on March 29. Pastor Coates's wife, Erin...

    Daily Caller ^ | 04/07/2021 | Nathalie Voit
    Entrepreneur and author of “Woke, Inc” Vivek Ramaswamy claimed China is using “woke” politics to manipulate Americans during a Wednesday appearance on “Fox and Friends.” China has positioned itself as “uniquely off-limits” for identification as the origin country for the novel coronavirus despite the country clearly being so, Ramaswamy argued. “The Zika virus, the Marburg virus, and Ebola, were all named after the places of origin. In fact, MERS stands for the Middle Eastern respiratory virus. That’s an older coronavirus,” Ramaswamy told “Fox & Friends.” Ramaswamy continued, noting other COVID-19 strains — such as the U.K. variant, Brazilian variant and...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) has referred three counties for investigation for violating absentee ballot regulations, he announced Wednesday. Raffensperger referred Coffee, Grady, and Taylor counties for investigation after the three Peach State counties “failed to do their absentee ballot transfer forms in violation of Georgia Rules and Regulations,” per a release of the announcement. Absentee ballot drop boxes were permitted last year via an emergency rule, stemming from adjustments prompted by the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. “The emergency rule required counties with drop boxes to fill out ballot transfer forms that included the date, time, location, and number...

    Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott demanded that the White House close a San Antonio facility housing migrant children Wednesday following allegations that children there were being sexually assaulted. During a Wednesday evening press conference, Abbott said he received tips that alleged the children at the Freeman Coliseum facility were being sexually abused and were not eating enough. "These problems are a byproduct of President Biden’s open border policies and the lack of planning for the fallout for those disastrous policies," Abbott told reporters. The governor said that separate complaints were sent to the Department of Health and Human Services and...

    Washington Times ^ | April 7, 2021 | Kery Murakami
    Several cities and states, including some jurisdictions with White majorities, are backing the explosive idea of giving Blacks reparations in recognition of slavery and racism in the nation’s past. But supporters of the idea have not reached a consensus about how reparations would work. The politically charged idea of sending checks to all Black people remains on the table. But most plans, such as a measure approved by the St. Paul, Minnesota, City Council in February and a bill in the U.S. House, do not go that far.

    After years of not being able to find a buyer for her Saddle River mansion, Rosie O’Donnell finally caved and sold her home at a loss, The Post has learned. But the home’s next residents are already causing a stir in the tony neighborhood, home to the rich and famous, from rapper Ja Rule to singer Mary J. Blige. The six-bedroom, nine-bathroom abode is expected to be demolished and turned into a series of affordable housing units per a landmark public court settlement with Fair Share Housing Center. But the agreement has left its upscale residents outraged. According to an...

    SNIP The former congressman gave viewers on YouTube an eye full Wednesday, when he ended a Zoom interview by revealing he was wearing a tight pair of Daisy Dukes along with his dress shirt and suit jacket. The 85-year-old Libertarian inadvertently gave the glimpse of his liberally cut short shorts in the last seconds of a video chat on political issues with host Doug Casey. The men had finished discussing the future of personal liberty, when Paul rolled his chair back from the camera and showed just how much liberty his tiny jeans allowed his slightly tanned, thighs to enjoy.

    The Bureau of Land Management released yesterday a tw0-minute video that supposedly answers questions, including, “Should I apply to be a wildland firefighter with the BLM?” This is at best, misleading, since most if not all of their employees that do fight fire work under job titles of “Forestry Technician” or “Range Technician”. Besides the “Should I apply” question, the video addresses others, such as: “I don’t know, it seems kind of boring. And not fun at all. “What if I get dirty? “What would I do in my free time?”
