    A 28-year-old New Jersey man who was next to Ashli Babbitt when she was shot by police during the siege of the US Capitol building has been arrested, authorities said Wednesday. Thomas Baranyi, a Peace Corps member who appeared in a widely circulated clip showing his bloody hand, was busted Tuesday [01/12/2021] by FBI agents on charges of disorderly conduct and being in a restricted building, according to court documents. Baranyi appeared in court later that day and did not dispute that he appeared in the interview, officials said. He was released on $100,000 unsecured bond and barred from entering...

    Late last year, popular podcast host Joe Rogan invited onto his show Dr. Robert Malone, a world-class Covid denier and medical quack, who told Rogan’s millions of listeners that public health experts advocating for vaccines today are akin to Nazi’s in the 1930s. Getting vaccinated against a deadly virus was a sign of “mass formation psychosis,” and Malone suggested Biden was leading a hypnotized cult. It was a misinformation-fest that Rogan said at the time he hoped would go viral. It did. Then the whole thing got banned by YouTube, where the Joe Rogan Experience gets uploaded, for violating the...

    New York City authorities on Friday announced they have arrested a suspect in the Sunday morning killing of 19-year-old Kristal Bayron-Nieves. Winston Glynn, 30, has been charged with murdering Bayron-Nieves and criminal possession of a weapon. He has four prior arrests on charges of menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, assault and criminal mischief, authorities said during a press conference Friday. Glynn is accused of shooting Bayron-Nieves, who was working at a Burger King in Harlem after midnight, while she was struggling to unlock a cash register he demanded she open.

He was publicly hanged for rape on August 14, 1936 in a parking lot in Owensboro, Kentucky (to avoid damage to the courthouse lawn by thousands of people who were expected to attend).

    International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research ^ | apparently May 10, 2021 | Stephanie Seneff and Greg Nigh
    ABSTRACT Operation Warp Speed brought to market in the United States two mRNA vaccines, produced by Pfizer and Moderna. Interim data suggested high efficacy for both of these vaccines, which helped legitimize Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA. However, the exceptionally rapid movement of these vaccines through controlled trials and into mass deployment raises multiple safety concerns. In this review we first describe the technology underlying these vaccines in detail. We then review both components of, and the intended biological response to, these vaccines, including production of the spike protein itself, and their potential relationship to a wide range...

    Background The recently emerged SARS-CoV-2 omicron variant raised concerns around potential escape from vaccine-elicited immunity....Here, we report VE of 2 or 3 mRNA-1273 doses against infection and hospitalization with omicron and delta, including among immunocompromised individuals. Methods This test negative study was conducted at Kaiser Permanente Southern California. Cases were individuals aged ≥18 years testing positive by RT-PCR with specimens collected between 12/6/2021 and 12/23/2021.......In analyses of 2-dose VE against delta infection by time since receipt of dose 2, VE at 14-90 days was 82.8% (69.6%-90.3%) and subsequently declined, with VE of 63.6% (51.8%-72.5%) at 91-180 days, 61.4% (56.8%-65.5%) at...

    This is making the rounds on the internet. If you take the number of years between 2021 and your year of birth and then subtract those years from your year of birth, what year would that be? In my case, 2021-1968 = 53. Then 1968 - 53 is 1916. Just for fun, what year would you get?
  • Nazi archive on Freemasonry with trove of 80,000 items amassed by Heinrich Himmler could shed light on the secret society, researchers say

    A historic archive of Freemasonry amassed by the Nazis in their wartime purge could still reveal secrets about the society, researchers say. From insight into women's Masonic lodges to the musical scores used in closed ceremonies, the trove - housed in an old university library in western Poland - has already shed light on a little known history. But more work remains to be done to fully examine all the 80,000 items that date from the 17th century to the pre-World War II period.

    A leading QAnon promoter who urged both her followers and strangers she passed on the street not to take the COVID vaccine died Thursday of the coronavirus, making her just the latest vaccine opponent killed by the disease. Cirsten Weldon had amassed tens of thousands of followers across right-wing social media networks by promoting the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy under the screenname “CirstenW.” She was prominent enough to become a sort of QAnon interpreter for comedian conspiracy theorist Roseanne Barr and started recording videos about QAnon with her. In late December, however, Weldon started showing symptoms of coronavirus infection. In her...
  • The birth certificate of the deep state - Wilson's Study of Administration

    01/08/2022 3:44:57 PM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 18 replies
    The Study of Administration (1887), by Woodrow Wilson, sets the stage for the bureaucracies that would follow it a little over a dozen years after it's publication. Starting roughly in the 20th century, the progressive era saw the explosive growth of administrative agencies lacking any oversight whatsoever, a malady we suffer under to this day over 120 years later. Unique among all generations of Americans before them, the progressives hated the United States Constitution, and Administration was their answer once and for all to get around this pesky obstacle we have all come to know and love.

    It’s a question those of us in the gun writing business often get asked. “What’s the best caliber for a self-defense handgun?” Those expecting a one-to-three digit answer from me will be disappointed. I respond to their simple question with a complex one. “What is the most powerful cartridge that you can shoot accurately and proficiently that comes in a handgun which is comfortable enough to carry that you’ll carry it all the time?” Depending on the person asking, the answer will vary. For some, it’s a full-sized .357 Mag. or 10 mm Auto. For others, it’s one of the...

    Abstract Background: There is a recognized need to determine influenza vaccine effectiveness on an annual basis and a long history of studying respiratory illnesses in households. Methods: We recruited 328 households with 1441 members, including 839 children, and followed them during the 2010-2011 influenza season. Specimens were collected from subjects with reported acute respiratory illnesses and tested by real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. Receipt of influenza vaccine was defined based on documented evidence of vaccination in medical records or an immunization registry. The effectiveness of 2010-2011 influenza vaccination in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza was estimated using Cox proportional hazards models...

    CULVER CITY, CA—Trans woman Amy Schneider broke a winnings record on Jeopardy last week, earning more than any female contestant in the show's history. Experts say this proves once and for all that men really are smarter than women. "As a biological male, Schneider is once again proving the vast superiority of the male intellect," said MIT researcher Dr. Yamblo Figlenstrogg. "For better or for worse, this will be a huge boost for sexists and transphobes everywhere!" Audience members were reportedly in awe to find that Schneider's dress and pretty hair did not negatively affect the functioning of her brilliant...

  • COVID-19 directly damages, creates scar tissue on the kidneys, study finds

    (StudyFinds.org) – Although studies show COVID-19 is capable of infecting a patient’s kidneys, the virus’s exact impact on the organs has been unclear – until now. A team of German and Dutch scientists report COVID-19 causes direct cellular damage within the kidneys, contributing to tissue scarring. Conducted at the RWTH Uniklinik Aachen in Germany and the Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands, study authors assessed and compared kidney tissues among COVID-19 ICU patients, other patients in the hospital for a non-COVID-related lung issue, and a group of healthy people. Results show kidney tissue from the COVID-19 patients showed much...

    Work conversation with manager | 23 December 2021 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    An interesting thing happened yesterday! A manager at work was talking about the deteriorating political situation and to paraphrase, said the following: He tends to lean toward the liberal side (his lifestyle would truly indicate this, but no further comment), but he simply can not support some of the policies and spending they are trying to force down people's throats. He stated very plainly he can NOT support them because of the things they are advocating. I was in shock. I have NEVER heard a Democrat talk like that. The Democrats have to already know this in regard to their...

    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Hospitals are slammed across Arizona. The state is asking the federal government for help with staffing, and Yavapai County is so inundated, it's running out of room at its morgue. Thursday, Yavapai County Community Health Services said it's requesting a refrigerated truck because so many people are dying from COVID. Their morgue is close to capacity, and they need to be prepared. In Maricopa County, public health leaders said it's not that bad here yet, although they are watching those numbers closely. "January marks two years from the first COVID-19 case in Maricopa County," said Marcy...
