Biden Domestic Terror Advisory Extended Until August

When you are having a bad month, as the Biden gang surely is, one handy way of distracting from crisis after crisis is to scare the public about ‘white nationalism’ again!

It is ho-hum news, but I’m posting it because it features a clip of Susan Rice expounding on the terrorism threat from white people especially those who believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

I think we all need to keep an eye on Rice if Richard Grenell is correct and she is running the White House.

From the Independent:

Updated terror advisory warns of ‘complex and volatile’ threats from domestic and ‘grievance-based’ groups

The US Department of Homeland Security has renewed a terrorism advisory bulletin following the “increasingly complex and volatile” threats facing the US, including from “individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence” exploited across social media and exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic.

Following the Capitol insurrection on 6 January and Joe Biden’s inauguration on 20 January, the agency issued a bulletin warning that anti-government “ideologically motivated violent extremists” motivated by “perceived grievances fueled by false narratives” could “continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence” domestically.

That advisory expired at the end of April.

The new advisory – which expires on 13 August – maintains that those threats continue to spread online “with the intent to incite violence” against elected officials, government facilities, law enforcement and “perceived ideologically opposed individuals.”

It also points to their use of social media as a platform to discuss “a race war” by exploiting unrest.

[….]

A recently unclassified joint intelligence report – ordered within the president’s first days in office – determined that racially and ethnically motivated violence as well as violent militia groups present the “most lethal” threats in the US.

Perpetrators of racist violence are “most likely to conduct mass-casualty attacks” against Americans, according to a report from Homeland Security, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the US Department of Justice.

Domestic violence extremists motivated by “a range of ideologies and galvanised by recent political and societal events” pose an “elevated threat” to the US in 2021, according to the report.

False narratives about the 2020 presidential election, the Capitol insurrection, and conspiracy theories and conditions related to the coronavirus pandemic “will almost certainly” fuel more violence in 2021, the agencies reported.

“Biden” Admin Steals $2 Billion from COVID, Health Spending To Pay For Illegal Migrants

The most corrupt, illegitimate “administration” in American history, and that’s saying A LOT.

One objective – destroy this great nation.

Biden admin diverts $2B from COVID, health spending to care for migrant kids

By: NY Post, May 15, 2021:

The Biden administration has pulled more than $2 billion out of programs authorized by Congress for COVID-19 testing, emergency medical supplies and other health needs — and is spending it on shelter for the 45,000 unaccompanied migrant children that have flooded across the US border this year.

The Biden administration has pulled more than $2 billion out of programs authorized by Congress for COVID-19 testing, emergency medical supplies and other health needs — and is spending it on shelter for the 45,000 unaccompanied migrant children that have flooded across the US border this year.

The Department of Health and Human Services siphoned $850 million out of funds allocated for testing in President Biden’s massive $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill, Politico reported Saturday.

Secretary Xavier Becerra pulled $850 million more out of a fund meant to replenish the Strategic National Stockpile of items like medical gloves, masks, antibiotics and ventilators, and yanked $436 million out of other health programs, according to HHS spokesman Mark Weber.

Such transfers are legal, as long as Congress is notified.

In all, $2.13 billion have been poured into emergency shelters near the US-Mexico border, where kids have been crammed into jail-like “pods” that allow for no social distancing.

The report came just days after Becerra appeared before a congressional committee to plead for another $905 million to be pumped into the pandemic-depleted stockpile.

The news of the cash diversion had Republicans — who have blamed the spiraling border crisis on Biden’s executive orders rolling back President Trump’s strict immigration policies — fuming.

“The President single-handedly created this crisis and is now misplacing billions in taxpayers’ money,” Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) told The Post.

“The answer to every problem is not to throw money at it,” said Malliotakis, who excoriated Biden after visiting the border in April. “In this case, it’s simply rescinding his executive order, reinstating President Trump’s border protocols, and going after the cartels and smugglers.”

In recent weeks, a Texas nonprofit won two HHS no-bid contracts totaling nearly $620 million to provide “emergency intake” services for migrant children shortly after hiring a former Biden aide.

‘Significant Discrepancies’ Discovered In Arizona Audit, Ballots Off Up to 17.5%, ‘Likely Joe Biden Did Not Win’

“We now know why the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have been fighting this subpoena so hard.”

Every battleground state requires a deep forensic audit.

BREAKING: ‘Significant Discrepancies’ Discovered In Arizona Audit, Ballots Off Up to 17.5%, ‘Likely Joe Biden Did Not Win’

“They’re hiding the disaster in which they handled this election, and likely, the fact that Joe Biden did not win in Arizona.”

By: Tom Pappert, National File, May 13, 2021:

The ongoing audit of ballots cast in Maricopa County, Arizona has uncovered “significant discrepancies” in the number of ballots versus the supposed number of ballots that were supposed to exist. Political strategist Boris Epshteyn adds that the discrepancies may be as high as 17.5%, and it is “likely Joe Biden did not win Arizona”.

Arizona Senate President recently sent a letter to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, outlining the major issues discovered already in the audit, and offering to settle them without additional subpoenas or compulsory action. In the letter, says Epshteyn on Steve Bannon’s podcast, it reveals, “Pallet five, batch 2976, 200 pink slip total, actual total 165. They are missing 35 ballots out of that batch.” He added, “35 out of 100 is 17.5%. 10 out of 200 is 5%.”

“Do you know how shocking that is? 17.5% discrepancy in a batch is beyond belief.” He added, “In one they’ve got 18 more than there’s supposed to be, which is a 9% discrepancy. Again, if we are to have any confidence in elections in this country, how can we possibly be okay with discrepancies of double digit percentages? It’s absolutely mind boggling, anything above a tiny fraction of a percentage is unacceptable, by the way, unacceptable according to the Federal Elections Commission.”

Ephsteyn explained that several databases subpoenaed for the purpose of the audit have been removed, including files that contain the election results and how they were tallied. “There’s evidence these databases were removed as recently as March, right before handed over, and while being subject to a subpoena. That’s criminal activity.”

“We now know why the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have been fighting this subpoena so hard, why Perkins Coie has come in, why the Democrats are pushing back, why you’ve got mainstream media melting down,” he explained, “Because they’re hiding this. They’re hiding the disaster in which they handled this election, and likely, the fact that Joe Biden did not win in Arizona.” (READ MORE: Mark Kelly Hires Perkins Coie To Sue National File, Here’s How You Can Help)

The official Maricopa Arizona Audit Twitter account, controlled by Arizona Former Secretary of State Ken Bennett, confirmed the discrepancy and its significance. “Breaking Update: As we open boxes of ballots delivered by Maricopa County, we are discovering significant discrepancies between the number of ballots therein and the batch reports included in the boxes.”

Democrats have repeatedly attempted to interfere with the audit process using the media, the courts, and public statements from Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbes, a Democrat. As National File reported, “Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, whose team is now monitoring the audit, has shown blatant bias, tweeting out the hashtag #fraudit. The Maricopa Arizona Audit official Twitter account told Hobbs to stop ‘attempting to disrupt the audit process.’”

‘Every day was a nightmare’: Two horror stories about Facebook wrapped in one

The dark underbelly of the social media behemoth has been exposed.


Members of the Irish parliament have been listening to a very disturbing story. Facebook is a big player in the Irish tech economy but the underbelly of this giant is now being exposed. Within its entrails it is harbouring a monster.

Isabella Plunkett has worked as a Facebook content moderator for just over two years,

She has now told the parliament’s Joint Committee on Enterprise, Trade and Employment, about her nightmare job as a moderator, viewing graphic content up to eight hours a day. The job is so stressful that Facebook has to provide 24/7 counseling support for staff — but clearly what they do is totally inadequate. Apparently she is the first moderator to speak on the record to a government hearing anywhere in the world.

There are two horror stories wrapped in one here.

The first is the story of Isabella and all her co-workers in this role. This morning the BBC has told this in its searing detail and the nightmare is clearly still raging. Nothing that Facebook is currently doing or promising to do is solving the problem and the burden that it is asking these workers to endure.

Isabella’s job is to review posts on the platform — which can contain graphic violence, exploitation, extremism, abuse and suicide.

But what, we must ask, does it say about us as a society, as a civilisation, that we have allowed a platform to exist in our midst which is facilitating traffic like this across the world — or that can bring itself to ask a young person to expose themselves to such evil? There is a moral principle which tells us that what it is not good to desire it is not good to look at. This is for a reason — and the reason is that by exposing oneself to evil one risks being contaminated by that evil, even against one’s better judgment.

“It’s not like a normal job where you can go to work and go home and forget about it — the stuff you’re seeing is really ingrained in your mind,” she said.

Isabella processes around 100 a day – these can be videos, images or text posts on the platform. She said they often contain graphic violence, suicide, exploitation and abuse. “Every day was a nightmare,” she said, adding that the support given was “insufficient.”

“It’s not enough. I’m now seeing the content I view in work in my dreams. I remember it, I experience it again and it is horrible. You never know what is going to come next and you have to watch it the full way through because they might have violators.”

“It would follow me home. I could just be watching TV at home and think back to one of the horrible, really graphic tickets” — the terms for the units she had to watch.

Depressing for all of us is the realisation that corrupted human nature has been capable of generating the volume of evil which this exposure is now revealing. The pain and misery of Isabella Plunkett is heart-rending but the sea of pain and misery which this monstrous alien living and thriving in the body of Facebook must dismay us beyond horror. That it is so persistent decades after its mothership arrived among us is surely evidence that it is nowhere near vanquished.

The 26-year-old Plunkett says she could not speak to her friends or family about the things she saw at work due to a non-disclosure agreement which she had signed at the beginning of her contract. “It was always clear we couldn’t speak about our job, we couldn’t speak about our job to friends, family… and it’s definitely a workplace with a sense of secrecy.”

Well, it might be, but there are harmless secrets and there are lethal secrets which should not be secret — like the one the Chinese authorities kept under wraps for too long in Wuhan.

“What you’ve seen now is 15-plus years of self-regulation by Facebook,” Cori Crider, the director of Foxglove, a UK-based group that advocates for moderators, told VICE News. “You’ve basically had no regulation of something that is at least as big and as important as broadcast media. And it’s been shown not to work, not just for the conditions of this workforce but frankly for the health of the public square as a whole.”

Many of us use Facebook every day. I may also buy my newspaper in a store which peddles unspeakable merchandise on its top shelves. I may consider that this does not compromise me morally. But at what point do I draw the line? These revelations about the suffering of a young woman and the potential corruption of our society at large may be forcing us to make a choice we might rather not have to face.

120 American Generals: U.S. May Not Survive ‘Biden’s’ attack on Constitution

They stole the election. If this is allowed to stand, then we have lost free and fair elections. Without that, the country is already dead.

120 American generals: U.S. may not survive Biden’s attack on Constitution

‘Our nation is in deep peril’

By: Bob Unruh, WND, ay 11, 2021:

A letter that has been signed by some 120 retired military leaders who served America in some of its darkest hours and places is warning that the nation may not survive the attack on the Constitution being orchestrated by Joe Biden, the president.

“Our nation is in deep peril,” says the letter, which was posted online at The Federalist.

“We are in a fight for our survival as a constitutional republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of constitutional freedom and liberty.”

Biden has, of course, implemented a multitude of socialist ideas for Americans, essentially without even the benefit of Congress, and the letter pointed that out.

“The current administration has launched a full-blown assault on our constitutional rights in a dictatorial manner, bypassing the Congress, with more than 50 executive orders quickly signed, many reversing the previous administration’s effective policies and regulations,” they wrote. “Moreover, population control actions such as excessive lockdowns, school and business closures, and most alarming, censorship of written and verbal expression are all direct assaults on our fundamental rights.”

They pointed to the 2020 elections, however, as the most significant red flag.

“Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the ‘will of the people’ our constitutional republic is lost. Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. Legal votes are identified by state legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc.

“Today, many are calling such commonsense controls ‘racist’ in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections. Using racial terms to suppress proof of eligibility is itself a tyrannical intimidation tactic. Additionally, the ‘Rule of Law’ must be enforced in our election processes to ensure integrity,” they wrote.

“The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020.”

And they warned against the Democrats’ openly proclaimed congressional agenda point of taking over all elections in the nation entirely, banning state security requirements and imposing hugely suspect processes such as mail-in ballots for all and hired ballot collectors who would take votes from individuals – and then turn them in.

The report said the signatories include President Ronald Reagan’s former National Security Adviser John Poindexter, President George W. Bush’s former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense William Gerald Boykin and retired Army Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc, who is now running for Senate in New Hampshire.

They object to the “litany of left-wing pursuits showcased in the first 100 days of the new administration led by President Joe Biden, who has redefined what it means to run a far-left presidency,” the report said.

They cited the Democrats’ attack on elections, demand for open borders, unlimited censorship from Big Tech, the attempt to return to the Iran nuclear deal, the damage to the nation’s energy independence, and more.

“Under a Democrat Congress and the current administration, our country has taken a hard left turn toward socialism and a Marxist form of tyrannical government,” they charged.

GOP Chair: Election Shouldn’t Have Been Certified If Maricopa County Election Routers Were Shared With Law Enforcement

The fix was in.

GOP Chair Kelli Ward: Election Shouldn’t Have Been Certified If Maricopa County Election Routers Were Shared With Law Enforcement

By: Conservative Brief, May 11, 2021:

The Maricopa County, Arizona, recount and audit of the 2020 presidential election is ongoing, but there has been a new plot twist.

Arizona GOP Chair Dr. Kelli Ward delivered a major update on Monday night and explained what she called “the big router lie” by the Maricopa County officials.

Maricopa County had 2.1 million votes in 2020 and therefore required a large system to handle the routers for the election.

Maricopa County insisted last week they could turn over the routers because they are shared with law enforcement.

Ward explained that if an election is to be certified, its routers should not and could not be shared with law enforcement.

WATCH:

Democrats are very worried about the election audit taking place in Arizona.

The Biden Department of Justice has sent a letter to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann taking issue with Maricopa County’s forensic audit of the 2020 election.

The letter is from Pamela Karlan, the principal deputy assistant attorney general of the Civil Rights Division.

Karlan writes to Fann that the DOJ is taking issue with two main parts of the forensic audit:

“I write regarding issues arising under federal statutes enforced by the United States Department of Justice that are related to the audit required by the Arizona State Senate for the November 2020 federal general election in Maricopa County,” the letter states. “News reports indicate that the Senate subpoenaed ballots, elections systems, and election materials from Maricopa County and required that they be turned over to private contractors, led by a firm known as Cyber Ninjas.”

“The Department has reviewed available information, including news reports and complaints regarding the procedures being used for this audit,” the letter continued. “The information of which we are aware raises concerns regarding at least two issues of potential non-compliance with federal laws enforced by the Department.”

“The first issue relates to a number of reports suggesting that the ballots, elections systems, and election materials that are the subject of the Maricopa County audit are no longer under the ultimate control of state and local elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors at an insecure facility, and are at risk of being lost, stolen, altered, compromised or destroyed,” the letter added.

“Federal law creates a duty to safeguard and preserve federal election records,” the DOJ letter went on. “The Department is charged with enforcement of provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1960. This statute requires state and local election officials to maintain, for twenty-two months after the conduct of an election for federal office, “all records and papers” relating to any “act requisite to voting in such election…”

“The purpose of these federal preservation and retention requirements for elections records is to ‘secure a more effective protection of the right to vote,’” the DOJ continued.

“The second issue relates to the Cyber Ninjas’ statement of work for this audit,” the DOJ went on. “Among other things, the statement of work indicates that the contractor has been working ‘with a number of individuals to ‘identify voter registrations that did not make sense, and then knock on doors to confirm if valid voters actually lived at the stated address.”

“The statement of work also indicates that the contractor will ‘select a minimum of three precincts” in Maricopa County ‘with a high number of anomalies’ in order ‘to conduct an audit of voting history’ and that voters may be contacted through a ‘combination of phone calls and physical canvassing’ to ‘collect information of whether the individual voted in the election’ in November 2020,” the DOJ letter added.

Maricopa County has started the audit of 2.1 million ballots.

Ask yourself why Biden’s DOJ is getting involved in the matter.

BRILLIANT! Gov. DeSantis Files Lawsuit Against CDC For Economic Damage To Florida Businesses

The Democrats declared war on every working American. How long are you going continue to be a victim? Fight back like DeSantis.

DeSantis 2024!

Gov. DeSantis Files Lawsuit Against CDC For Economic Damage To Florida Businesses

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis is going after the Biden administration directly this week.

By:Martin Walsh, Conservative Brief, May 10, 2021

DeSantis has filed a lawsuit against the Centers for Disease Control in federal court that aims to hold the CDC accountable for inflicting economic damage to Florida businesses with draconian lockdown measures.

“But I can tell you this, our state was predicted to get hit worse on Covid economically than any other state because of our service economy and our tourism base,” DeSantis said.

“And what we were able to do by keeping Florida open, we saved hundreds of thousands of jobs in the restaurant, hotel, hospitality industry. We saved thousands of businesses,” he continued.

DeSantis declared: “You know how I know that? Because every time I go out, someone will come up to me and say, ‘Thank you for saving my job,’ or ‘Thank you for saving my business.’ So we’ve been able now with 4.7 percent unemployment, that’s significantly less than the national average of 6% and way less than lockdown states like New York and California have.”

“So we’re doing it right. We obviously want to make sure those folks are able to succeed in terms of getting the people they need, but just think of where we could be. I mean, this is a good problem to have compared to seeing people — in some parts of the country, these businesses are dead,” he continued.

“They’re never coming back. This is the heavy hand of the government crushing family businesses, ruining jobs, and destroying millions of people’s lives. We chose another path in Florida; it was the right path; it was the successful path, and yes, we want to make sure that these things are — there are actually restaurants that have to close one day a week because they don’t have enough folks,” he said.

“So that is fundamentally unfair,” he continued.

“It makes no sense and we are suing the CDC right now. We have a hearing coming up in federal court. But I can tell you, I want the cruises going. I want the cruise ships going; I think it’s vital for our economy. There are tens of thousands of folks that are impacted by this issue,” he declared.

“When we announced the lawsuit in Miami, I’ll never forget it,” DeSantis added.

“We had a bunch of folks behind me, kind of like this, but they were all people who worked in the industry, and not just worked for the cruise lines. You have all these smaller businesses that support this industry, and one of the ladies went up there. She said, ‘You know, we were told two weeks. It was hard for us, but we were there. We wanted to do our part.’ Here we are a year later. And she’s like ‘You know, there’s been a lot of toll in our community because of Covid. We’ve had a lot of deaths, but they’re not deaths from Covid. They’re deaths from despair’,” he said.

Earmarks are Back and Now Pork Spending is Great!

Earmarks are back! And now, the unaccountable chicanery at taxpayer expense is a good thing, according to the unaccountable media. We shouldn’t be surprised. Clearly Washington has the financial responsibility of a 16-year-old with an unlimited credit card from a magic wizard.

Earmarks were those highly unpopular Congressional expenditures where any member of Congress could and did insert their pet spending projects in giant spending bills that no one read. No accountability. It’s how we got the famed “bridge to nowhere” in Alaska.

There had been bipartisan abuse of them running up the taxpayer tab without any real representation for years. Eventually, the American people were disgusted. Media coverage was appropriately savage as it highlighted absurd expenditure after absurd expenditure.

That was then. This is now. In reading a Miami Herald story on how their local members of Congress are playing a role in the return of earmarks, this lead tells a giant story of how far the media partisanship has gone, and the willingness to rewrite history. Journalism today is just cancerously bad.

“Over the last decade, members of Congress have been unable to request federal funds for specific projects in their districts after Republicans banned the practice at the height of the Tea Party wave to curb what conservatives called wasteful spending.

“But now the requests, called earmarks, are back. And two South Florida lawmakers will play an important role in the process, which is competitive. Not every lawmaker will get what they want.”

Virtually everything in that is wrong. “Unable to request” is 100 percent false. Members have continued to request funds for projects in their district. They just had to do it in the light where the public and voters could see it.

Of course then they tied it to the Tea Party, which the Democrat operative media rank as second to Trump as a negative connection point. But it was bipartisan. The Tea Party merely channeled the anger with it.

What “conservatives called wasteful spending”? They should have done a google search. Reuters reported: “Soon after House Republicans banned the practice in 2011, the Democratic-led Senate followed suit at the urging of Democratic President Barack Obama. Earmarks have been gone since.”

It was bipartisan because it was obvious that the American people despised it. The Miami Herald’s knee-jerk operatives however, spin it as a Tea Party and conservative move. Doubt that’s what President Obama and the Democrat-run Senate was thinking.

However, what is more alarming than the deceitful media is that the return of the earmarks is a bi-partisan decision to restore. All Democrats wanted the unaccountable pet spending back. And a small majority of Republicans also voted in favor.

To me, all this just says that other than a minority of Republicans, Washington D.C. has totally given up on any sense of controlled spending. Trillions for this Covid bailout, trillions for that one. Trillions more to remake healthcare, trillions more for the new green deal. Hanging on to the earmark ban is just cute at this point.

Does anyone really have any idea what our leaders in D.C. think this end game of infinite spending is? Perhaps enough Americans are getting “free money” that the self-consumed political class doesn’t care.

We used to want to leave the country better off for the next generation than we found it. Along with many other grand ideas, that one appears to be dead.

CAIR Calls on Biden to Appoint a Special Squad to Monitor and Combat so-called Islamophobia, Enforce Sharia

Florida Family Association has prepared a message below that you can post into the White House Contact Form.  Please consider rewriting it in your own words.

Barenakedislam.com reports:  As ‘anti-Islamization’ policies by Western governments are on the rise, U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations calls on Joe Biden to  appoint  a special envoy to monitor and combat so-called ‘Islamophobia.’

According to Robert Spencer of Jihad Watchshould the USCMO succeed in its goal to see a special envoy to “monitor and combat Islamophobia” in America, the  systematic  hunting   down  and  cancelling  of organizations, websites, and individuals who criticize or offend Islam would be in order.

CAIR published a report that alleges 6,000+ Muslim Civil Rights Complaints were filed in 2020 just in time for its lobbying of  Joe  Biden  to  create  a  squad to crush Christians, Jews  and Infidels  at  large  who  dare criticize the barbarism, inhumanity and incivility of certain edicts and fatwas of Islam.

The  news  releases posted at CAIR.com call into question the credibility of 6000 Muslim complaints.   Only 7 out of the first 100 news release posts as of April 30, 2021 at CAIR.com involved alleged Muslim civil rights complaints.  If there were 6000+ American Muslim civil rights complaints filed with CAIR why are there so few reported on its website with less than 10 percent of CAIR.com news releases reporting such cases?

CAIR.com//press-releases/ published more reports about “systemic racism,” “white supremacist,” Native Americans,  Sikh  community,  Asians  and   bogus defense of some Jews than it reported about Muslim civil rights complaints.   Florida Family Association does not consider valid concerns expressed by elected officials regarding CAIR and Rep. Ilhan Omar to be legitimate civil rights complaints.

One could easily conclude from reading CAIR.com//press-releases/  that  there was truly an absence of discrimination against Muslims in 2020 and that CAIR  was jumping on the band wagon of more popular causes perhaps with the hope of building an alliance with these other groups.

Such  an  envoy  or anti-Islamophobe Squad fails constitutionally   at   the   start   by   giving Islam preferential treatment over other religions.  Officials in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) were  giving  the  Council  on  American   Islamic Relations  (CAIR)  unconstitutional  preferential treatment in an anti-bullying program. The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) filed a lawsuit in 2017.  FCDF sued the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) on behalf of several area parents and  two  interest  groups.  It asked the court for a preliminary injunction forcing the school district to stop working with CAIR, arguing that working with a religious organization violated the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause.   The (liberal, leftist) San Diego Unified School District settled the case in a manner     which    effectively    gutted    CAIR’s anti-Islamophobe Squad in the district’s schools.

THE COVID JAB: A Genocidal Weapon of Mass Destruction

“What connects two thousand years of genocide? Too much power in too few hands.” – Simon Wiesenthal

“The more it (vaccination) is supported by public authorities, the more will its dangers and disadvantages be concealed or denied.” ― M. Beddow Bayly, British physician

“The duty of the survivor is to bear testimony to what happened . . . You have to warn people that these things can happen, that evil can be unleashed. Race hatred, violence, idolatries—they still flourish.” – Elie Wiesel

“We have seen more than once that the public welfare may call upon the best citizens for their lives. It would be strange if it could not call upon those who already sap the strength of the State for these lesser sacrifices. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.” – US Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Buck v. Bell, 1927


Justice Holmes’ ruling in the notorious Buck v. Bell decision allowed that a state statute permitting compulsory sterilization of the unfit, including the intellectually disabled, “for the protection and health of the state” did not violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.  The entire ruling was flawed, the case was a lie because Carrie Buck was not promiscuous, she was raped, but the overwhelming legitimization of Galton’s 1883 eugenics resulted in an 8-1 decision against Carrie Buck.  State statues have been repealed, but Buck v. Bell has never been overturned and involuntary sterilizations still occur today.

The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program years before Hitler and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz. Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune. They were all in league with some of America’s most respected scientists hailing from such prestigious universities as Stamford, Yale, Harvard, and Princeton. These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics’ racist aims. Link

Eugenics and Covid-19

Investigation reveals both the Gates family and their foundation have documented ties to reinvented eugenics movements of the modern age.  The work carried out by this organization shows an array of ulterior motives that are contrary to saving lives.

The Gates Family, Eugenics and Covid-19.

America is killing humanity and shaking hands with the devil…brought to us by the United States government via their stakeholders: The Gates Foundation, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the World Health Organization (WHO), Big Pharma and our democrat-controlled propaganda media and their favorite mouthpiece, Dr. Anthony Fauci.  Media are promoting an evil injection which is causing countless worldwide deaths and disastrous side effects.  They have made a commitment to promote mass vaccination for the Covid virus.  We may well be witnessing the largest number of unnecessary vaccine-induced deaths in American history, despite a 99.75% overall recovery from the virus.

Dangerous Injections

In Leo Hohmann’s recent article, he states that America has had 3,544 deaths and 12,619 serious injuries reported between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 23, 2021, yet it is left to patients to report adverse effects to Vaccine Adverse Effect Reporting System (VAERS). Hohmann included Alex Newman’s 30-minute interview with Dr. Peter McCullough, essential information.  McCullough holds the honor of being the most cited medical doctor on COVID-19 treatments at the National Library of Medicine, with more than 600 citations. He has testified before Congress and won numerous awards during his distinguished medical career.  He said if this were any other vaccine it would have been pulled from the market by now for safety reasons.

“A typical new drug at about five deaths, unexplained deaths, we get a black-box warning, your listeners would see it on TV, saying it may cause death,” McCullough said. “And then at about 50 deaths it’s pulled off the market.”

The U.S. has a precedent for this. In 1976 during the Swine Flu pandemic the U.S. attempted to vaccinate 55 million Americans, but at that point the shot caused about 500 cases of paralysis and 25 deaths.

“The program was killed, at 25 deaths,” McCullough said.

But billions of Covid-vaccines are being made. Pfizer’s Covid vaccine earned the company $3.5 billion in the first three months of this year, 25% of Pfizer’s total revenue, which I don’t have a problem with, but no one is stopping this mRNA inoculation, and it has already killed thousands and injured thousands more.

Inoculation Pressure!

Want to fly, send your children to school, go into your office?  You can’t come to my party if you’re not vaccinated!  Pressure to get the jab is enormous.

The swine flu vax was stopped at 25 deaths, yet 203 people died in 2019 from the flu vaccine.  In 2018, 119 people died.  In 2017, 85 people died from the flu vaccine.  It was not removed from the market because thousands of youngsters and elderly die each year from seasonal flu.  According to the CDC, there were 959,000 hospitalizations and 79,400 deaths attributed to influenza during the 2017–2018 season, and that includes babies and toddlers.  Yet, we can choose whether we wish to take the seasonal vaccine, which at times has only covered 10% of the year’s virus.

Tucker Carlson recently stated that roughly 30 people have died every day from the Covid-mRNA vaccines between late December and April 20th.  These numbers are from VAERS, but the real numbers are not known; less than one percent are reported.

In less than four months, the Covid inoculations have caused nearly 4,000 deaths, and that is more than all other vaccines administered in the US between mid-1997 and the end of 2013…nearly 15 years.

Many preeminent physicians you’ll never hear on mainstream media are saying this is the single most deadly inoculation in history.  No one has ever charted the deaths from the polio vaccine which caused soft tissue cancers by being grown on Simian monkey kidneys.  Simian Virus 40 (SV40) has probably killed millions and is genetically passed, and the polio vaccine was given in the late 50s and early 60s.

Know the Law

The pressure is heavy, but know the law…these inoculations are not licensed by the FDA and you cannot be forced to take the vaccine.

Ever since the Food and Drug Administration granted “emergency use authorization” (EUA) for two new “vaccines” in December 2020, (Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna) employers, schools, and other organizations are grappling with whether to require Covid-19 vaccination.

While organizations are certainly free to encourage their employees, students, and other members to be vaccinated, federal law provides that, at least until the vaccine is licensed, individuals must have the option to accept or decline to be vaccinated.

The clinical trials the FDA will rely upon to ultimately decide whether to license these vaccines are still underway and are designed to last for approximately two years to collect adequate data to establish if these vaccines are safe and effective enough for the FDA to license.

Given the uncertainty about the two vaccines, their EUAs are explicit that each is “an investigational vaccine not licensed for any indication” and require that all “promotional material relating to the Covid-19 Vaccine clearly and conspicuously … state that this product has not been approved or licensed by the FDA, but has been authorized for emergency use by FDA.”

When Dr. Amanda Cohn, the executive secretary of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, was asked if Covid-19 vaccination can be required, she responded that under an EUA, “vaccines are not allowed to be mandatory. So, early in this vaccination phase, individuals will have to be consented and they won’t be able to be mandatory.” Cohn later affirmed that this prohibition on requiring the vaccines applies to organizations, including hospitals.  Link

The first US lawsuit was filed in February 2021, against Doña Ana County Manager in Las Cruces, New Mexico for the unlawful mandating of Covid Vaccines.

Injection Injuries

In Del Bigtree’s interview with three horribly injured health care workers, two of the three healthcare workers didn’t even know about VAERS, and the one who did, had a co-worker whose child was paralyzed from the waist down by a flu vaccine.  They had to report to VAERS as their physicians and hospitals never did. Most shocking is that 90% of the inoculation injuries occur in women.

Harvard Medical School did a study of VAERS, paid for by the CDC, and they determined that less than one percent of vaccine adverse events are reported.  Physicians won’t even acknowledge the deaths and side effects of these injections, so it’s up to the patient or their family to report it. If healthcare workers do not know of VAERS, certainly most Americans don’t either.

Statistics show children have more chronic health issues than ever before. At the same time, they are the most vaccinated children who ever existed. See the connection?

Jabs, Dangerous and Useless

In an exclusive interview with Alex Newman of the New American Magazine, German microbiologist Sucharit Bhakdi explained how coronavirus vaccines affect the body at the cellular level. He warned that these vaccines are set to cause a global catastrophe and decimate the human population.  He pleads with people not to get the “vaccine.” Dr. Bhakdi states that the injections are either useless or dangerous.

Remember the Johns Hopkins report issued by Dr. Genevieve Briand…the original article was on the web and then pulled two days later.  The report stated there were no more deaths in 2020 than in previous years.  Deaths related to cancer, heart disease, flu, pneumonia, diabetes, etc. have all been categorized in Covid-19. The total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by Covid-19; the 2020 yearly death rate remains the same.

The question remains, why do we need an untested and unlicensed dangerous inoculation for a virus that has a 99.75% recovery?!

mRNA Dangers

A recent Israeli study claimed Pfizer’s vaccine is 40% more dangerous than the Covid virus.  According to a Yale epidemiologist, as reported in The Gateway Pundit, over 50% of new Covid cases involve people who have already been vaccinated.

A startling new report in *Microbiology and Infectious Disease* finds the mRNA vaccines could trigger Alzheimer’s disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and other neurological and cognitive degenerative diseases.

Life Site News reported that the experimental vaccine death rate for Israel’s elderly is 40 times higher than Covid-19 deaths.  “Pfizer’s vaccine killed about 40 times more (elderly) people and 260 times more of the young than what the Covid-19 virus would have claimed in the given time frame.”

Deaths began skyrocketing in Vietnam and Cambodia once the vaccine was administered to the public. The cure with the experimental gene therapy vax is far deadlier than the asymptomatic disease that has a 99% survival rate.

Life Site News reported that thousands ended up in hospital in the UK after receiving the injection and tested positive for Covid.  Their excuse was the vaccine hadn’t had enough time to work.  India’s inoculations started in February and now the rise of Covid cases has accelerated.

American Guinea Pigs

In 2010, I wrote a 10-part article entitled, American Citizens as Guinea Pigs.  Our government has a penchant for experimentation on her citizenry, and especially on our military.

The U.S. government poisoned alcohol during prohibition.  The bootlegged gin and whiskey often made people sick, but this time it was our own government.  They decided making alcohol taste bad was the answer during the 13 years without legal liquor.  A New York medical examiner found Kerosene, Brucine, Gasoline, Benzine, Cadmium, Zinc, Formaldehyde, Chloroform, Acetone and more in the government’s renatured industrial alcohol which disproportionately affected the poor who couldn’t afford smuggled alcohol and booze cruises. It didn’t work. Instead, by the end of Prohibition in 1933, the federal poisoning program had killed at least 10,000 people by most estimates.

I’ve mentioned the polio vaccine countless times.

Opioid manufacturers’ settlements have been in the news despite using our troops to secure Afghan poppy fields.

Vioxx was a popular drug to treat arthritis, but Merck and Co. pulled it off the market in 2004.  Research linked the drug to approximately 140,000 heart attacks and 60,000 deaths. Merck is said to have used flawed methodologies for predetermined results and exaggerated positive effects.

From 1932 to 1972, our U.S. Health Department, now the CDC, had no problem with black men in Tuskegee, Alabama being used in an ethically abusive and evil experiment and study to observe the natural history of untreated syphilis. None of the Health Department physicians felt compassion, guilt or regret for what they had done.

Thalidomide was a rapidly approved drug introduced in 1957, to address nausea and insomnia in pregnant women. It was marketed in 50 countries before being withdrawn in 1962 due to malformations in newborns. Be careful with what comes in a rapidly approved vaccine.

Former Director of the CIA, Allen Dulles, committed appalling human experiments with mind control.  Link

Over and over again, the military has conducted dangerous biowarfare experiments on Americans.  On September 20, 1950, a US Navy ship just off the coast of San Francisco used a giant hose to spray a cloud of microbes into the air and into the city’s famous fog. The military was testing how a biological weapon attack would affect the 800,000 residents of the city.

Human radiation experiments, especially those committed in Oak Ridge, TN during WWII were evil and diabolical, more than one can imagine.  Plutonium experiments on babies and soldiers were exposed in Eileen Welsome’s book, The Plutonium Files.

The U.S. Government has a secret history of grisly experiments; unethical human experimentation in America was a common occurrence in the 20th century.  Here is a list of 30 human experiments that will give you nightmares.

Throughout American history, government experiments took advantage of vulnerable populations who were not given sufficient details to give informed consent.

Using American citizens as guinea pigs for this unlicensed experimental Covid injection is pure evil.

Conclusion

The Nuremburg Codes written after the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust, specify first and foremost the consent of the human subject is essential.  I have yet to find one person who has received the Covid injections who has been told that the shot is not licensed and approved by the FDA.

How many healthcare employees are told to give this shot and are not informed of VAERS, the statistics, the deaths and adverse effects?  Are they just doing as they’re told?

Obedience to authority was the excuse for many Nazi perpetrators.  Some got off, but others were sent to the gallows.

The Milgram experiment by psychologist Stanley Milgram at Yale University showed explicit reactions to authority.  His experiments began in July 1961, a year after the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. Milgram devised the experiment to answer the question: Could it be that Eichmann and his million accomplices in the Holocaust were just following orders?  What he found was telling.

Ordinary people are likely to follow orders given by an authority figure, even to the extent of killing an innocent human being.  Obedience to authority is ingrained in us all from the way we are brought up.

Milgram summed up his findings in his 1974 article “The Perils of Obedience.”  The results are frightening.

International Olympic Committee Bans BLM Apparel for Olympics

Who’d a thunk the Olympic Committee would have the balls to stand up to this terror group — ball-less Americans, take note.

Tokyo Woke No Mo’: IOC Bans BLM Apparel for Olympics

…and it was the players’ idea!

By: Andrew West, Flag and Cross, May 6, 2021:

Over the course of the last several years, Americans have been inundated with the melding of sports and politics, as athletes from around the nation continue to express their political and cultural beliefs while on the job.

For many, this has been an annoyance and not an elevation of the game, as Americans continues to complain about their “escape” from the real world now being tainted with a whole lot of drama from the real world.

That won’t be the case in Tokyo, however, as the International Olympic Committee looks to put the kibosh on virtue signaling. 

Olympics athletes will not be allowed to wear “Black Lives Matter” apparel during ceremonies at the upcoming Tokyo Olympic games, according to new rules posted by the International Olympics Committee (IOC).

The IOC revealed its newest policy changes last month, noting that no political demonstrations will be allowed on the field of play. And IOC officials have since confirmed that the rules also ban any use of Black Lives Matter imagery, logos, apparel, slogans, and activism, according to TMZ Sports.

The move came after the IOC polled the participating athletes on the subject.

The IOC claimed that its prohibitions on athlete activism came after a poll found that a “majority” of the 3,500 athletes polled favored the ban.

“A very clear majority of athletes said that they think it’s not appropriate to demonstrate or express their views on the field of play, at the official ceremonies, or at the podium,” said IOC Athletes’ Commission chief Kirsty Coventry.

“So our recommendation is to preserve the podium, field of play, and official ceremonies from any kind of protest or demonstrations or acts perceived as such,” Coventry added.

Given the high profile nature of the IOC’s stance, it will be interesting to see just how many athletes attempt to circumvent the ban to make headlines.

Fascist Facebook Oversight Board Upholds Trump Ban

Facebook’s far-Left oversight board has upheld their ban of President Trump. Yet they have no problem with some of the worst racists, terrorists, and dictators spreading their propaganda on Facebook. Americans must support alternative communication platforms, if we are to have any chance in our fight against the Left.

Facebook Oversight Board upholds Trump ban but calls indefinite suspension ‘not appropriate’

By Fox News, May 5, 2021

Facebook’s Oversight Board on Wednesday upheld former President Donald Trump‘s ban from Facebook and Instagram, but said it was “not appropriate” for Facebook to impose the “indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension.”

“The Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on January 7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account,” the board announced Wednesday morning.

But the board gave Facebook six months to review the “arbitrary” indefinite ban, saying in a tweet that the company “violated its own rules.”

“Facebook cannot make up the rules as it goes, and anyone concerned about its power should be concerned about allowing this,” the board said in a statement. “Having clear rules that apply to all users and Facebook is essential for ensuring the company treats users fairly.”

The board in January accepted a case referral from Facebook to examine the ban, as well as to provide policy recommendations on suspensions when the user is a political leader.

“Facebook’s normal penalties include removing the violating content, imposing a time-bound period of suspension, or permanently disabling the page and account,” the board said Wednesday, insisting that Facebook “review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform.”

As for recommendations on suspensions for high-profile users like Trump, the board said that “it is not always useful to draw a firm distinction between political leaders and other influential users, recognizing that other users with large audiences can also contribute to serious risks of harm.”

“While the same rules should apply to all users, context matters when assessing the probability and imminence of harm,” the board said. “When posts by influential users pose a high probability of imminent harm, Facebook should act quickly to enforce its rules. Although Facebook explained that it did not apply its ‘newsworthiness’ allowance in this case, the Board called on Facebook to address widespread confusion about how decisions relating to influential users are made.”

The board added that “considerations of newsworthiness should not take priority when urgent action is needed to prevent significant harm.”

The board also urged Facebook to “publicly explain the rules that it uses when it imposes account-level sanctions against influential users,” saying the rules should ensure that when Facebook “imposes a time-limited suspension on the account of an influential user to reduce the risk of significant harm, it will assess whether the risk has receded before the suspension ends.”

“If Facebook identifies that the user poses a serious risk of inciting imminent violence, discrimination or other lawless action at that time, another time-bound suspension should be imposed when such measures are necessary to protect public safety and proportionate to the risk,” the board added.

BRILLIANT: Florida will fine any business or school $5,000 each time it requires a ‘vaccine passport’ or proof of COVID-19 vaccination

Awesome governor. Imagine what America would be like if every state were governed like Florida. #DeSantis2024.

Senate OK needed to send Florida vaccine passport ban to DeSantis’ desk

By Washington Examiner, May 3, 2021

Florida will fine any business or school $5,000 each time it requires a “vaccine passport,” or proof of COVID-19 vaccination, for entry or participation under a bill bound for Gov. Ron DeSantis’ desk.

The House Wednesday passed Senate Bill 2006 in a 76-40 vote and sent it to the Senate to endorse a newly added amendment before the session ends Friday.

Sponsored by Sen. Danny Burgess, R-Zephyrhills, SB 2006 was passed by the Senate on April 22 in a 27-9 vote.

The 49-page SB 2006 amends the state’s Emergency Management Act to place limits on local emergency powers and installs fines for businesses or institutions that require vaccine documentation. The relatively technical amendment added Wednesday clarifies COVID-19 screening protocols.

Under SB 2006, violating the state’s vaccine passport ban would be punishable by fines up to $5,000 per violation.

Under another provision, local government emergency powers would be limited to 10 or 30 days. To extend the emergency order beyond 30 days, a vote needs to take place with a majority of voters approving the emergency order extension.

Opponents argued the bill infringes on business owners’ property rights and would impair the travel industry and the state’s cruise line operators, who say their customers want fellow travelers to be vaccinated.

“What about the cruise ship industry? What about the hospitality industry? They can’t make those decisions?” asked Rep. Michael Grieco, D-Miami Beach.

Rep. Omari Hardy, D-Lake Worth, said Republicans support for a vaccine passport ban undermines their pro-business claims, especially when it comes to the state’s $8 billion cruise industry and overall $90 billion tourist/hospitality economy.

“If you care about our business community as certain elected officials in this state say that they do, why would you prevent people from enacting policies that give their customers the assurance, the confidence, that they can walk into a business, and that they’ll be safe?” Hardy asked.

Rep. Tom Leek, R-Ormond Beach, who carried SB 2006’s House companion, said forcing people to be vaccinated to go to work or to patronize a business discounts legitimate concerns about the shots.

“We have vaccines, through some miracle of science, that work. We also must recognize that COVID-19 vaccines don’t have the same proven history as the same vaccines we require our schoolchildren to get,” Leek said. “We must recognize that vaccine hesitancy is real and understandable.”

Leek said the ban also prevents discrimination of minority communities with lower rates of vaccination.

“Let’s return to normal, but recognize that it is fair for certain segments of our community to be hesitant about getting the vaccine,” he said. “And it is absolutely true that the largest segment of our community that is vaccination hesitant is our minority population.”

Wednesday’s floor debate on SB 2006 occasionally evolved into a referendum on Gov. Ron DeSantis’ pandemic policies.

The governor – a leading 2024 GOP presidential candidate not named Donald Trump – has been promoting his open policies during the pandemic against “lockdown states” on national media circuits for months.

In New Statement, President Trump Says 2020 Election Was “Fraudulent” and “THE BIG LIE!”

Absolutely. Now what? How do we right the terrible, horrible wrong?

Trump Says He’ll Appropriate ‘The Big Lie’ To Refer To His Election Loss

Former President Donald Trump on Monday announced he’ll begin to use the term “the big lie” – commonly used by his critics to describe his baseless election fraud claims – to refer to the 2020 election results, a sign he has no plans to tone down his rhetoric as one social media platform adjudicates his suspension.

Key Facts

In a statement sent through his political action committee, Save America PAC, Trump incorrectly blasted his loss in November as “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020” and said it “will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!”

As Trump has mounted his return to the spotlight, he has again become increasingly vocal about his unfounded fraud claims, putting out statement after statement in recent days about an Arizona election audit many onlookers have labeled dubious.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 ranking House Republican and a vocal Trump critic, shot back on Twitter that the election “was not stolen,” adding, “Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE” and “poisoning our democratic system.”

But this latest development comes as Facebook announced Monday it would decide the fate of Trump’s account, which was suspended after his supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 based on his fraud claims, on Wednesday.

Tangent

Trump has claimed he is better off without social media, particularly Twitter, calling his press releases more “elegant” than tweets and arguing Twitter has “become totally BORING” even as he tried to tag a right-wing news network in a recent statement.

Key Background

As early as the morning after election day, Trump began falsely claiming victory, using the time it took to count mail-in ballots as a window of opportunity. He has refused to concede President Joe Biden legitimately won the 2020 election even after putting out multiple video statements acknowledging he would be leaving office after his supporters stormed the Capitol.

Crucial Quote

“We will never give up. We will never concede,” Trump told a crowd of supporters gathered in front of the White House on Jan. 6 – some of whom later marched to the Capitol and stormed the building.

Big Number

70%. That’s the share of Republicans who believe Biden did not win enough votes to be president, according to a CNN poll of 1,004 U.S. adults released late last month.

What To Watch For

Trump remains a major force in the GOP and all but a handful of Republican officials are at least publicly eager to keep it that way, but it remains a genuine mystery whether he will mount another bid for the White House. He said last month he is “very seriously, beyond seriously” considering a run.

VIDEO: Romney BOOED and Jeered at GOP Event as Patriots Call Him a ‘Communist’ and ‘Traitor’ At State Convention

Very much deserved. Senator Romney was awful to President Trump. Hopefully he will be primaried so he can’t run for a second term.

Romney showered with boos at GOP event as hecklers call him a ‘communist’ and ‘traitor’

By Washington Examiner, May 1, 2021

Sen. Mitt Romney was showered with loud boos by a Republican audience in Utah as he attempted to slam President Joe Biden’s agenda.

“I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,” Romney said Saturday as delegates at Utah’s Republican convention shouted their disapproval, with some calling him a “traitor” and a “communist.”

“Aren’t you embarrassed?” Romney asked the crowd at one point.

Romney also touted his Republican credentials and told the crowd that the boos don’t bother him.

“You can boo all you like,” said Romney. “I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan, and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012.”

The jeers finally stopped when the outgoing party chairman urged the delegates to “show respect.”

Romney has drawn the ire of Republicans nationwide over the last few years stemming from his criticism of former President Donald Trumpincluding a vote to convict him of impeachment in 2020.

Utah’s Republican governor, Spencer Cox, also received some boos as a result of the coronavirus restrictions in his state. GOP Sen. Mike Lee addressed the crowd too and received a warm reception.
