IMF Changes Its Tune: Brexit Britain’s Economy Will Grow Faster Than Europe

The globalist International Monetary Fund has enjoyed a spectacular change of tone over Brexit, and is now predicting the British economy to grow faster than Europe’s in the coming years.

While the IMF cut global growth forecasts, the United Kingdom economy was predicted by the body to continue to grow, fractionally outpacing the European Union’s aggregate rate in 2019, 2020, and 2021, the report said.

“Loomer’s Law” — Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer Inspires New Anti-Censorship Bill Targeting Social Media

A bill will be introduced next week in Florida, aimed at allowing lawsuits to be filed against social media platforms for political censorship.

Breitbart reported that the legislation will be announced on Tuesday by Florida Senator and Republican leader Joe Gruters.

According to the bill posted on the website of the Florida State Senate, the goal is to make sure that “certain” social media platforms that have created a digital public square live up to the standards required by this turn of events, and allow Florida residents the right to political and religious free speech on the platforms. The bill specifically concerns these two types of speech.

App Warning: With One Photo, Strangers Can Find All Your Information

An app called Clearview allows the user to snap a photo of anyone. Once that’s done, the person who took your picture will have access to all of your information. Privacy is now all but obsolete.

People will not, for much longer, be able to walk down the street minding their own business anonymously. According to a report by The New York Times, it won’t be long before anyone at any time knows exactly who you are while you’re in public.

What if a stranger could snap your picture on the sidewalk then use an app to quickly discover your name, address and other details? A startup called Clearview AI has made that possible. Perhaps the worst news is that the police state is already using this technology in some parts of the “land of the free.” The app is currently being used by hundreds of law enforcement agencies in the United States, including the deep state FBI, says a Saturday report in The New York Times.

Google Whistleblower Suggests His Wife’s Fatal Car Crash May Not Have Been Accidental

Says he was warned of an “accident” months before.

Google whistleblower Dr. Robert Epstein has suggested that his wife’s fatal car crash may not have been accidental.

Last month, Misti Dawn Vaughn’s Ford Ranger spun out of control on a slippery road in California and veered into the path of a tractor trailer. She died from her injuries days later.

Police concluded that drugs or alcohol were not factors in the crash.

In a tweet posted last night, Epstein appeared to suggest that the crash was not accidental and Vaughn’s vehicle could have been tampered with.

“Last year, after I briefed a group of state AGs about #Google’s power to rig elections, one of them said, “I think you’re going to die in an accident in a few months,” wrote Epstein.

“A few months later, my beautiful wife #Misti died a violent death. Makes you wonder,” he added.

Through his exhaustive studies, Epstein has exposed how algorithm manipulation by Big Tech can shift millions of votes during elections.

After the 2016 presidential election, Epstein surmised that search engine bias shifted 2-3 million votes in Hillary Clinton’s favor.

Epstein has also repeatedly savaged the idea that Big Tech platforms are just “private companies” and can therefore do what they like.

“Who on Earth gave these private companies the power to make decisions about what everyone in the world is going to see or not see?” asked Epstein, adding, “These companies shouldn’t have that power, period.”

‘Guillotine the Rich’: Sanders Staffer Says He’s Ready for Armed ‘Revolution’

Project Veritas has apparently snared another pro-Soviet, pro-gulag Bernie Sanders campaign staffer, this one saying in a hidden-camera video released Tuesday that he was ready to “get armed” for the “revolution” and musing about sending Republicans to “reeducation camps.”

The footage featured a man identified as “paid” South Carolina field organizer Martin Weissgerber was posted a week after the release of video featuring radical Iowa field organizer Kyle Jurek, part of the undercover journalism outfit’s #Expose2020 series.

In the video, Mr. Weissgerber described himself as a communist and said that he was in contact with groups that planned to hold mass “yellow-vest” protests like those that have roiled France if Mr. Sandersloses.

Mandatory Flu Vaccine Coming Your Way?

As discussed in my November 5, 2019, article, “Trojan Horse of Measles — More Vaccines With the Mandate,” while most state legislation targeting vaccination mandates have focused on measles, what tends to get lost in the debate is that these mandatory vaccination laws are likely to be extended to all vaccines, including the influenza vaccine, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and any number of vaccines licensed and recommended by the federal government in the future.

In other words, measles outbreaks and the fear-mongering by exaggerating disease risks and minimizing vaccine risks are being cleverly used to create propaganda to eliminate the legal right to make vaccine choices across the board. As just one example, in “Trojan Horse of Measles,” I discuss how a bill has been introduced in New York that requires children to be vaccinated against HPV in order to attend day care and public school.

This, despite the incredible health risks associated with the HPV vaccine and its low benefit-to-risk ratio,1 not to mention the fact that it has never been proven to lower cancer rates. On the contrary, emerging data suggest the incidence of cervical cancer increased in Sweden after HPV vaccine was recommended for all girls and women aged 9 to 26 years…

Chairman and chief legal counsel for Children’s Health Defense Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stated in “The Plaintiff’s Science Day Presentation on Gardasil,” that Merck’s HPV vaccine Gardasil “has distinguished itself as the most dangerous vaccine ever invented.”

In his presentation, Kennedy reveals Merck data showing Gardasil increases the overall risk of death by 370%, risk of autoimmune disease by 2.3% and risk of a serious medical condition by 50%.

A 2018 study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health5 found that women who received HPV vaccinations suffered higher rates of infertility. According to this study, “if 100% of females in this study had received the HPV vaccine, data suggest the number of women having ever conceived would have fallen by 2 million.”

After “skeptic” critics of scientific evidence that vaccines have significant health risks publicly attacked the study, the paper was withdrawn by the publisher.6

A 2014 case report paper7 described cases of three adolescent girls who suffered premature ovarian insufficiency after their HPV vaccinations — a condition that can render them incapable of bearing children in the future. Conveniently, Merck, maker of Gardasil, is also “the world market leader in fertility treatments,” according to the European Pharmaceutical Review.8

Project Veritas Bernie Sanders Campaign Exposé Dominated Social Interactions Despite Mainstream Media Blackout

Earlier this week, Project Veritas released a video recorded undercover that shows a man said to be a Bernie Sanders staffer, saying he expects that if US President Donald Trump is re-elected in November, “cities will burn” — as well as that Trump voters might be “reeducated” in case of a Sanders victory.

Further, the man — identified as Kyle Jurek — described himself as an anarcho-communist and suggested that members of the militant left-wing group Antifa might be in the Sanders campaign.

And even though the undercover video was mostly ignored by mainstream media, it still managed to become headline news on the internet. The story succeeded in overshadowing what many would have expected to have the most impact — namely, a clash between Sanders and another Democratic presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren, over whether or not he said that “a woman can’t win” a US election.

Rabid Democrats Accuse Trump of Yet Another Crime, But Ignore Obama’s Lawlessness

The GAO released their new report on Thursday morning claiming Trump violated federal law, although many suspect the GAO report is meant help Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-California.and her rabid members of the Democratic Party, such as Reps. Adam Schiff, D-California, and Jerrold Nadler, D-New York.

According to Sid Franes, a former NYPD detective and ex-director of security, “The timing of the GAO releasing its report was possibly planned for maximum effect against President Trump especially since it comes during the impeachment process that many recognize is a frame up by the Deep State’s ‘foot soldiers’“

“If the Democrats believe that they are going to impeach Trump for delaying payments to a rogue regime, they are holding a losing hand in the Swamp’s political Poker game. They are a political party that’s gone extremely rogue,” said Franes, who has worked as an adviser to a number of political campaigns.

Sidney Powell Files Motion Withdrawing General Flynn’s Guilty Plea

The General’s original plea is tainted for many reasons…General Flynn never lied to anyone, and then there’s the conflict of interest with his previous attorneys, and now the move to withdraw his plea of guilty because the government has engaged in bad faith and vindictive conduct, and has breached the plea agreement pursuant to which he has cooperated for two years. Sidney Powell rightfully has filed the motion to withdraw General Flynn’s original plea.

Countless exculpatory documents were requested by attorney Sidney Powell from the DOJ’s FBI, and Judge Sullivan demanded them. Yet, none were forthcoming and the judge allowed the lack of exculpatory evidence from the FBI to remain hidden. It has even been reported that dirty cop, FBI agent Joe Pientka and his wife are being hidden. Joe was involved with everything corrupt involving the Russia Collusion Hoax and his wife is an attorney for a company involved with Fusion GPS.

Why is the FBI allowed to hide exculpatory evidence and not respond to Judge Sullivan’s order? Where the h*ll is AG Barr? Where the hell is FBI Director Christopher Wray? And why the hell hasn’t the Judge seen to it that his orders were followed? The buck stops with President Trump…he is in charge of the DOJ.

Soros-Funded St. Louis Circuit Attorney Sued for Communications With Felon-Journalist, Her Chief Investigator on Greitens’ Case Indicted on 6 Counts of Perjury

As reported earlier investigative journalist and Fox News Contributor John Solomon sued controversial St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner last week.

What was not reported was the extent of the lawsuit or the extent of this Missouri scandal.

John Solomon sued Gardner for violating Sunshine Laws. Gardner, a Soros-funded circuit attorney, refused to turn over documents related to the case against Eric Greitens, a Navy SEAL and former Governor.

In 2018 the Soros-backed St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner led a campaign to attack, smear and oust popular Missouri Republican Governor Eric Greitens.

When Kim Gardner was elected in 2016, over 70% of Kim Gardner’s campaign funds came from George Soros, over $190,000.

Gardner and her associate and former FBI agent, William Tisaby, were successful in forcing Governor Eric Greitens to resign from office.

Former Missouri Governer Eric Greitens was indicted in February 2018 on invasion of privacy charges for taking a photo of a naked mistress before he ran for governor.

The woman claimed it was very traumatizing. The woman also admitted she went back to Eric’s house later that same day for more sex.

The photo never materialized. And according to our sources there never was a photo.

Target Tori Says She’s Giving Away the Proceeds From Her GoFundMe to a Good Cause

Target manager Tori, who recently gained mass support from the Twitterverse after journalist David Leavitt called the police on her over a “$0.01” toothbrush, says that she’ll be giving the proceeds from her GoFundMe to a good cause.

The GoFundMe was set up shortly after Leavitt tried to get Tori to sell him a toothbrush for $0.01 — seemingly because he had confused a display unit price with the price of the toothbrush he wanted to buy. When Tori refused, Leavitt posted a photo of her to his 200,000+ Twitter followers, called the police, and threatened to take legal action.

Twitter threw their support behind Tori and popular meme maker Carpe Donktum set up a GoFundMe to send Tori on a vacation after having to deal with Leavitt.

The ‘Historic’ Sham Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump

The January 15 press conference was astonishingly cringeworthy to listen to. A stuttering Nancy Pelosi, who seemed like she was suffering from alcohol withdrawal, uttered some of the nation’s most historic quotes and had the gall to compare them to what the Democrats continually allege that President Trump did: ask Ukraine to interfere in our national elections and threaten to withhold foreign aid from Ukraine if they didn’t. Of course, this is EXACTLY what quid pro quo Joe Biden did. Biden was caught on tape admitting to extortion and bragging about it, as he demanded Ukraine fire a prosecutor investigating Burisma, an oil company, and its corrupt dealings that involved Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, or else they would not get the foreign aid money. Democrats keep playing by the playbook, “Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.” When will this trick get old and people stop going along with it?

This January 15th press conference was beyond the theatre of the absurd.

Here are some of the things that were said by Nancy Pelosi…

President Trump’s impeachment is comparable to a kangaroo court in a banana republic. Unfortunately for Americans, the Democrat Party is still a viable political party in the United States and represents the socialist / communist / banana republic wing of the nation.

The Impeachment Trial: Getting Trump (And the Clintons) Off the Hook

There is no doubt that Trump has an excellent case to make against impeachment and that the Senate won’t convict him. The strange part of the story is why his defense team not only includes liberal Democrat Dershowitz but the “Republican” lawyer who botched the impeachment case against Bill Clinton, Kenneth Starr. He is a Fox News contributor who served as Independent Counsel investigating the Clintons from 1994 to 1999. He failed to pursue the most serious charges, including a cover-up surrounding the 1993 death of Deputy White House counsel Vincent Foster.

Strangely, both defended billionaire pedophile Epstein, a high-level friend of the rich and powerful whose alleged suicide in prison has been openly questioned and even ridiculed. Asked why he defended Epstein, Starrreplied, “I was very happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.” The comments were made after a 2015 National Press Club event on “the future of higher education and the calling of faith-based institutions.”

Austrian Coalition Agreement: The “Road to Serfdom”

While most of the world’s attention was focused on the death of a terrorist leader, Iran’s Qasem Soleimani, and the ensuing missile retaliation in the Middle East, a small country in the heart of Europe was once again ruled by an elected coalition government. Following snap elections in late September 2019, the Austrian population exhibited great patience until the start of a new decade, when, on January 2, the Austrian People’s Party and the Greens proclaimed, to paraphrase the Vatican: “Habemus gubernationem!” (We have a government!)

Given that the two parties entering this government are polar opposites in terms of political orientation, left vs. right, it is not surprising that the negotiations for a “viable” and lasting government took 100 days until their successful conclusion. Moreover, given what the Greens stand for — the climate, preventing “right-wing extremists” (namely the Austrian Freedom Party) from entering government ever again, and transparency — it would seem irreconcilable with the People’s Party’s goals: migration and law and order. At first, only the Austrian and European mainstream media and the European Union enthusiasts in Brussels were optimistic about this new coalition. The latest polls, however, indicate rising approval among the population.

How long this enthusiasm will last, remains to be seen. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz praised the 326-page coalition agreement as “incorporating the best of both worlds”, and although it contains the proverbial “good, bad and ugly”, regretfully only little can be considered good. In fact, most of what the People’s Party and the Greens grandly announce in their pact paves the road to an illiberal democracy, even a totalitarian country, by introducing a dictatorship of political correctness.

Indian Court Declines Mosques’ Request to Install Loudspeaker for Azaan

No Religion Prescribes Use Of Loudspeakers For Prayer: Allahabad HC Declines Mosques’ Request To Install Loudspeaker For Five Time Azaan.

Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Allahabad | January 21, 2020:: The Allahabad High Court has said that the ban as imposed by a SDM for mounting loudspeakers and amplifiers in mosque in a village in Uttar Pradesh, will not be lifted. The court ordered that the SDM (Sub Divisional Magistrate)’s direction will not be interfered anyway with the exercise of its jurisdiction of court of law.

The court said that the cancellation of the SDM’s order could damage the social balance. The SDM earlier ordered to stop use of loud speaker of a Mosque for controlling disputes and tensions prevailed between the Hindus and Muslims in that locality in Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh.

The SDM stopped the use of sound amplifier in Masjid Abu Bakar Siddiqui and Masjid Rahmani at in village Baddopur, Tehsil Shahganj, District Jaunpur for the purposes of Azaan for Namaz at the end of July 2018 onward, as there was no valid permission to use of sound amplifiers and loud speakers by Mosques and some tension was created in those areas from the use of loud speakers of Mosques.

Aggrieved Muslims attached to Mosque committees appealed in Allahabad High Court (WRIT — C No. — 43167 of 2019) after their earlier plea (Writ Petition (C) No.11840 of 2018) was rejected in the Court of law.

Those who filed the petition stated that they should be allowed to play loudspeakers at the mosque for two minutes for five-time prayer (namaj) daily. They claimed that this would not harm pollution and social order. This is part of their religious work. As the population is increasing day by day, and it is important for Muslims to raise a prayer call through loudspeakers before prayers.

Rejecting this demand, Judge Pankaj Mittal and Judge Bipin Chandra Dikshit said that according to Article 25 (1) of the Constitution, all citizens are allowed to practice and promote their religion. But, there is no mention to use loudspeakers for any prayer call in any religious books, so far. On the other hand, the priority of the High Court is to apply the law properly to maintain the harmony of the society maintaining proper order to ensure ‘social interest and public good’. And in the present case, it is clear that there is no need for evangelism in the society, rather it is very much important to maintain social cohesion.

Cases of China’s New Mystery Virus Have Quadrupled, Human-to-Human Transmission Confirmed, And it May Soon Arrive Here

The mysterious new virus that is starting to spread very rapidly in China has global health officials extremely concerned. On Wednesday, the World Health Organization will convene an emergency meeting to discuss whether this outbreak should be “declared a global health crisis”, and screeners are being put in place at airports all over the world. But to a certain extent it may already be too late, because we know that this virus has already spread via airplane to at least three other countries. And since the early symptoms of this disease are so similar to what one would expect after coming down with a common cold, there could potentially be countless numbers of victims that have not even gone to the hospital because they don’t think that anything is seriously wrong.

Glenn Greenwald Charged With Cybercrimes in Brazil, Calls it an ‘Attempt to Attack a Free Press’

Journalist Glenn Greenwald has been charged with cybercrimes by federal prosecutors in Brazil, according to The New York Times.

The charge stems from Greenwald’s alleged role in “spreading of cellphone messages that have embarrassed prosecutors and tarnished the image of an anti-corruption task force,” the Times reported, pointing to several articles published by Greenwald based on a trove of leaked messages” he received.

According to the Times, the complaint said Greenwald, a former contributor to The Guardian who then co-founded the online news publication The Intercept, “did more than merely receive the hacked messages and oversee the publication” of newsworthy elements. Greenwald was accused by prosecutors of being part of a “criminal organization” that has hacked into the cellphones of prosecutors and other Brazilian officials, according to the report.

  1. “Activists Are Ordered to Remove Their Penis Gourds at the Start of Their Treason Trial in Indonesia, Sparking Standoff as Panel Refuse to Proceed Until They Put Some Trousers on” looks like they’re learning quickly… Somehow I doubt painting words like “monkey” is ceremonial even in their culture, though. So regardless of the penis gourds, they should’ve been given a fee for contempting the court.

  2. “United Nations Rules You Can’t Deport Climate Change Refugees” I’d like to see 10 000 Russians migrate from Siberia as climate change refugees and the UN welcoming them with open arms. We all know it has nothing to do with climate change.

    And, btw, doesn’t such things as changes in what are and aren’t human rights need to be ratified by member states? It’s not like the UN has decisive power, is it? They can propose sanctions, but those need to be supported by other member states, I believe?
    Either way it’s worth nothing if Saudi Arabia can lead the Human Rights division even though it’s well known they don’t really care about human rights.

  3. “Trump: After Devastating Fire, Great Bells of Notre Dame Will Ring Again, ‘Giving Glory to God’” That was a great speech! Very inspiring! It was something I would’ve expected from the Pope. Unfortunately the current one is for everyone but his sheep…
    Also good to know there’s firm opposition to Macron’s plans to make Notre Dame look like a mall!

  4. The world is full of crazy people and it keeps getting worse. My son gave me a bumper sticker that says: When in Earth’s History did the Climate Not Change? This is true. Climate has always changed.

    To me, it just seems like another scam to steal more money from the people.

    I hope you are doing well, Baron!

  5. As far as I am concerned, climate change is a hoax and money grab by the “Gruberment.” As a bumper sticker my son gave me says, when in the planet’s history has the climate NOT changed?

    I hope you are doing well, Baron.

  6. Comrade Kommissar Barnie Sandlers has found a captive audience…stupid college punks.
    They think that everything will be free when they will be footing the bill for it all for in the interests of the people’s collective. Forward to the hybrid Zimbabwe/Cuba utopia.
    Yes we can!
