    National Review ^ | 11.21.21 | Nate Hochman
    The Fairness For All Act (FFAA), an all-Republican bill that would make sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) a federally protected class in return for certain “right to discriminate” carve-outs for dissenting religious institutions, was originally introduced in 2019 by Representative Chris Stewart of Utah. Stewart, whose district went for Donald Trump by 16 points in 2020 — up two from 14 points in 2016 — reintroduced the bill at the outset of the 2021 congressional session with the backing of such well-known Republicans as Elise Stefanik, Nancy Mace, and Burgess Owens. This is the full list of the FFAA’s...
  • COVID has cost Canadians their freedom. It must be restored [The Free North Declaration]

    National Post [Canada] ^ | Nov. 20, 2021 | Bruce Pardy
    Late last week, three colleagues and I launched the Free North Declaration , a call to defend civil liberties in this country, which lawyers and members of the public are invited to endorse. So far more than 6,000 have done so, including over 100 lawyers. The declaration outlines the ways in which legal authorities — legislatures, governments, public health officials, professional regulators, administrative bodies and public institutions — have restricted Canadians’ liberties during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have done so shrewdly, to attempt to remain inside the strict letter of the law and to avoid triggering protections in the Charter...
  • Stacey Abrams says she's focused on voting rights legislation when asked about possible White House bid

    Stacey Abrams on Monday did not directly respond to a question about a potential presidential bid, instead saying that she is focused on getting voting rights legislation passed. During an appearance on CNN, host Erin Burnett asked the former Georgia gubernatorial candidate if she would consider running for the White House if President Biden decides against running for reelection. "Is that something you would consider?" Burnett asked, referencing a Politico article that noted Democratic operatives expect her to consider a run for the White House if she is successful with another possible Democratic campaign for Georgia governor.

    Representative Karen Bass (D-CA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the two white men killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest were like white Civil Rights activists killed in the 1960s. When asked about the trial on the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, Bass said, “I think that particular trial is off to a bad start just like the trial of Rittenhouse is off to a bad start as well. A year ago, we were talking about racial reckoning, and it seemed to be an enlightened period, and now we’ve had major setbacks. I think that people understand...

    The Biden administration signaled today that they are going to continue to push the envelope when it comes to vaccine mandates. That came from US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, who spoke to CNN’s Martha Raddatz this morning.According to Murthy, the administration is not ruling out the possibility of expanding the current vaccine mandate to cover small businesses as well, i.e. those with less than 100 employees.Biden’s Surgeon General Vivek Murthy doesn’t rule out EXTENDING the vaccine mandate to businesses with fewer than 100 employees.— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) November 7, 2021RADDATZ: And, Dr. Murthy, if the law survives legal challenges,...

    After white supremacists spilled blood in defense of keeping up Confederate statues in 2017, the GOP candidate for governor of Virginia, Ed Gillespie, said the monuments should stay up as a matter of heritage and history. His TV advertising featured threatening images of Latino gangs, labeled illegal immigrants, involved in murder and rape. The racially loaded ‘Culture Wars’ campaign, straight from then-President Trump’s playbook, gave Gillespie a push but he ultimately lost the race to Democrat Ralph Northam.

    “The rights of free speech and free exercise, so precious to this nation since its founding, are not limited to soft murmurings behind the doors of a person’s home or church, or private conversations with like–minded friends and family. These guarantees protect the right of every American to express their beliefs in public. This includes the right to create and sell words, paintings, and art that express a person’s sincere religious beliefs.” That opinion, issued in fall 2019 by the Arizona State Supreme Court, assumed an art form all its own – it was music in the ears of the...

    UT-Battelle manages Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) UT-Battelle requires all their employees to submit their vaccination status as a condition of continued employment. This choice, to get vaccinated, is a private choice that should be made between an individual and their doctor. UT-Battelle did offer employees the option to submit for an exemption on medical or religious grounds; many employees chose to do this. UT-Battelle apparently approved all exemptions (religious or medical) and subsequently used these approved exemptions to identify employees that did not fit within their business decisions. These employees are being put on unpaid leave for an undefined...

    The fact that 24-year-old Jonathan Isaac can speak more cogently about COVID and freedom of conscience than the entire corporate press is an astonishing development.One of the most remarkable twists in the pandemic is that a handful of NBA players have emerged as the most cogent and principled defenders of liberty, common sense, and basic civic decency in America.It’s a bit unexpected. In recent years, the NBA has most often landed in the political news cycle thanks to LeBron James’ disgusting habit of bowing and scraping before the Chinese Communist Party, or Steve Kerr’s refusal to breathe a word about...

    How to defend yourself and your rights while eating in a (public) food court. I recommend my American AND Canadian friends to watch this video. The people who are sitting at the table KNOW their rights and exercise them - in the face of the security guards and police who were sent to remove them from the premises. They successfully stood their ground and were LEFT ALONE by the police and security guards after both were read the rights of those at the table to eat there. MUST-SEE. (The video was taken in a food court here in Toronto and...

    In the waning days of 2020, as COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts were summiting the highest peak of the pandemic, the Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) of Massachusetts decided that the First Amendment’s Assembly Clause does not protect private assembly by private citizens in “private homes.” According to the state’s high court, whether, when, and how the citizens of Massachusetts may gather in each other’s dens and bedrooms are all questions of “significant government interest” to the state’s governor, and are therefore within his regulatory power.

    Neo-Leninist liberals are committed to the asphyxiation of personal freedom. It's an unimpeachable historical fact. They are a demonic consortium of haters, which brings me to Joe Biden. Biden is a lecherous drunk and molester, who is well remembered in the Hazleton, Pennsylvania, area for being face-down drunk at bar tables. That's not a joke, by the way. It's a fact that's still spoken of by local townsfolk. I'll grant that he believes himself to be president. That, however, is the way he sees himself; it's not the way I see him. I see him in the same context of...

    Concerned that "too may people are not doing as they are told," the Victoria state government in Southern Australia is requiring that everyone download a smart phone app that combines facial recognition and geolocation and use this app to respond to government inquiries regarding their whereabouts. The protocol will be that after receiving a text from the government, the targeted individual will need to respond within 15 minutes with a photograph that proves their identity and location. If the individual fails to respond or the photograph does not clearly prove they are where they are "supposed to be" police will...
  • Why So Many Americans Reject Legal Due Process in the Age of Covid

    08/30/2021 3:46:04 PM PDT · by algore · 12 replies
    The policy response to the covid panic of 2020 in the United States was one of the most widespread direct attacks on fundamental human rights in decades. Overnight—and without any deliberation, debate, or checks and balances—millions of Americans were denied their basic rights to seek employment, to freely assemble, and to engage in religious practices. Business and churches were closed, and countless Americans were ordered to stay in their homes and abandon their sources of income. This was all done with no legal process other than the issuance of edicts from a tiny handful of politicians, usually executives such as...

    In an escalating battle with Republican governors, President Joe Biden on Wednesday ordered his Education secretary to explore possible legal action against states that have blocked school mask mandates and other public health measures meant to protect students against COVID-19. In response, the Education Department raised the possibility of using its civil rights arm to fight policies in Florida, Texas, Iowa and other Republican-led states that have barred public schools from requiring masks in the classroom. Biden directed Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to “assess all available tools” that can be used against states that fail to protect students amid surging...
  • More Rights For The Vaccinated: Merkel’s Govt Pushes for Vaccine Passports in Germany(update)

    Top members of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government are lobbying for the implementation of vaccine passports in a supposed bid to increase takeup of the jab throughout the country. While Angela Merkel has previously ruled out making coronavirus vaccines mandatory in Germany, members of her government, including her chief of staff Helge Braun and Health Minister Jens Spahn, are calling for increased restrictions on the unvaccinated. Neither official has openly committed to the idea of introducing a vaccine passport, as has been rolled out in France, however, they have both called for increased access to public venues for citizens who...
  • Liberals Hate That You Have Rights

    The bizarre contortions that the libs are going through to blame you for the virus because you selfishly refused to submit to their fussy commands illustrates, for the umpteenth time, an undeniable fact about these fascist-curious creeps. They hate hate hate the idea of rights, particularly yours. In fact, when they refer to rights, they often insist on encasing the word in quotation marks, as if it was some bizarre and alien concept those Jesus-gun-truck-cisnormative people from Iowabamaho invented under the influence of moonshine and the Holy Spirit. Rights, they realize, are an intolerable obstacle to the things they want...

    I’m more worried about what is happening behind the scenes in the non-COVID universe while everyone is distracted by the purposeful weaponization of the healthcare institutions. It’s the other thing, the unseen activity, that is most troublesome when the leftists are this entrenched on a singular narrative.In this clip from Anthony Fauci on ABC This Week Sunday [Rumble Link], the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, claims that individual rights no longer exist during the era of COVID-19. When you consider the mindset of the far-left, his opinion on communal rights -vs- individual rights is right...
