Colleges Are Already Bleeding Money. It Might Get Even Worse.

As students and families continue to feel the financial impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, new polls show a number of students are reconsidering college for the upcoming fall semester.

According to higher education research and data outfit SimpsonScarborough, colleges could face a 20 percent decline in enrollment. The figure is a prediction based on surveys and polls the organization started taking in March.

Biden-Supporting Dem Rep Makes Vile Comment About Why He Doesn’t Believe Tara Reade, Even Dems Call for His Resignation

As I predicted on Thursday night, Joe Biden would deny the sexual assault allegations by his former staffer Tara Reade. Then Democrats and media would argue that he was being transparent, he’d answered questions and it was now time to move on.

That’s already happening. They even have a hashtag going, #IBelieveBiden, the Democratic answer to everything, a hashtag. But to be honest, it wasn’t much of a prediction, given that this has been their pattern with any allegation against a Democrat.

It also didn’t take much of a prediction that their “believe all women” position would fall in the face of these accusations and that some would attack Reade, as indeed they are with some accusing her of being a “Putin agent” (haven’t we stopped the nonsense conspiracy yet?).

But I have to admit that I’m not sure anyone would have predicted the take of New Hampshire Democratic state representative Richard Komi. It’s truly vile.

Cardinal Dolan: Left Wing is ‘Snotty’ Over My Dealings With President Trump

New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan has stood by his recent dealings with President Trump in the face of criticism from Catholic Democrats, insisting Catholics believe in dialogue and engagement.

“Now the left wing is snotty about the fact that I was part of a conference call with Catholic leaders, and I just say, ‘Look, are we in the sacred enterprise of accompaniment and engagement and dialogue, or are we not?” he asked in an online Facebook interview with Jesuit Father Matt Malone, editor-in-chief of America Media.

They are an embarrassent,” notesDr. Donohue in his May 1 statement, according to a Catholic League article entitled “Soros-Funded Attack on Cardinal Dolan.”

Coronavirus and the Horrors of Democrat Control

Mary and I live in a tiny town in West Virginia. Our grocery shopping options are 26 miles away in Maryland and 45 miles in Virginia. Maryland stores refused to allow us to enter because we did not have masks. We drove to Virginia. It was refreshing seeing Virginians free to wear masks or not. I noticed that the majority of shoppers wearing masks were young people. Do they believe fake news media more that we older Americans?

Stopping for gas, the gas pump TV monitor showed the propaganda commercial we see plastered all over TV. “Stay home. Stay Alive.” With fake news media promoting their lie 24/7 that going outside means death, it is not surprising that many Americans remain willing to surrender their constitutional freedoms to Democrat/RINO, anti-Trump and anti-American scammers.

A 106-year-old woman recovered from covid-19. Zhang Guangfen, 103-year-old, recovered. A 100 year old Chinese man recovered. A 102-year-old Pennsylvania man recovered. Bill Lapschies, a 104-year-old veteran recovered. Keith Watson, 101 years old, recovered. 17 of the oldest people in the world recovered from covid —19. My 60 something year old in-law recovered. In January, after returning home from California, my wife Mary is convinced she had covid-19. Ninety-eight percent of people who catch the virus recover. Fake news media gleefully reports deaths while ignoring the high recovery numbers.

Everyday we are seeing more studies which confirm that covid-19 is not deadlier than the flu. Numerous health experts say social-distancing is not the correct solution. The total shutdown of America was not necessary.

How Does COVID-19 Compare to the Spanish Flu?

Data points vary, and mortality statistics differ widely depending on the country and area you’re looking at, but using the higher of two prominent COVID-19 trackers — Worldometer, opposed to Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center — 238,950 people had died, globally, from COVID-19 as of the afternoon on May 2, 2020.

Based on a global population of 7.8 billion, 238,950 deaths amount to 0.003% of the global population. Even if this tally is off by hundreds of thousands, we’re still only looking at a fraction of a percent of the global population succumbing to COVID-19 in three and a half months.

April 15, there were also 1,403,420 active cases, 96% of which were mild and only 4% of which were serious or critical, so clearly, a vast majority of people who are infected make it through and end up having antibodies that will confer long-term immunity.

I for one could see shutting down the global economy for a true plague or something much like the Spanish flu, but COVID-19 simply doesn’t warrant the draconian elimination of personal freedom and liberty we’re currently seeing. Nor is it serious enough to warrant the kinds of long-term surveillance strategies suggested by Bill Gates…

In the Liberty Report video above, Dr. Ron Paul, former GOP congressman, also points out that Fauci’s “doom and gloom predictions” have completely collapsed, “with the new official prediction coming in under the normal flu numbers for 2018.”

If COVID-19 is not causing any greater death toll than the regular flu season two years ago, why are we now asked to end society as we know it well into the foreseeable future? There’s no doubt in my mind that there will be far more deaths attributable to the financial collapse and isolation than there will be from the actual infection.

Intruders Break Through Back Door of Home Before Dawn — And Then Say Good Morning to Homeowner’s Shotgun

An Oklahoma homeowner told the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Officehe was awakened by a window breaking at his residence in the Pumpkin Hollow area before dawn last Friday — and so he made sure his shotgun was at the ready.

Soon two males he didn’t know were breaking through his back door, authorities said — and with that the homeowner called 911, confronted the pair, and fired his shotgun at them.

Leaving so soon?

Perhaps they experienced a sudden hankerin’ for breakfast, because at that moment they immediately fled the scene, authorities said.

New Biden Accuser: He Complimented My Breasts When I Was 14 Years Old

Former Vice President Joe Biden has done an abysmal job neutralizing stories that could damage his presidential hopes. His son, Hunter, who has no experience in the energy sector, allegedly sold access to top Obama officials in 2014, while sitting on the board for a Ukrainian company while daddy Biden was spearheading efforts to root out corruption at the time. Now, he’s been slapped with a serious sexual assault allegation from a former Senate aide, Tara Reade, who alleges the then-Delaware senator penetrated her with his fingers in 1993. And Reade is not alone. There are scores of women who have come forward to describe what could only be called sexual harassment, with Joey being handsy and smelling their hair. Now, we have a woman who says Biden complimented her breasts when she was 14 years old. This isn’t an old story either, like from the 1970s. This incident occurred at a fundraiser in 2008 (via Law and Crime).

Ruling Class Wants Your Face in the Dirt Begging for Handouts

I admit that the Ruling Class has the UNCONSTITUTIONAL power to force my face into the dirt, but I will not beg for handouts. I will retaliate in kind. They exercise most of their power without legal authority thru the UNLAWFUL “Administrative State”. They think this criminal USURPATION of power is justified by the “Prerogative of Kings”, because they are so superior to us common people. American people are not stupid as evidenced by the sale of guns and ammunition. Americans practice the Scout Motto: “Be prepared”.

All of our suffering is due to the Ruling Class super rich families, and their Lackeys: the mainstream media, senior management at large corporations, universities, banks, judicial system, military flag officers, leadership of Democrat and Republican parties, most government employees and elected officials, influence-peddling think tanks like the Council on Foreign Relations, Brookings, et al. The so called, Democrat party is the hard core Communist wing of the Ruling Class. Make no mistake, the Ruling Class sold us out to China, and is continuing to do so. They want to emulate China’s brutal and total power over the people. Most NON Trump Republican officials, like Democrats, are just corrupt and gutless prostitutes, for sale to the highest bidder.

People must learn that the Ruling Class, and their Lackeys, are a Ruthless Cabal, consisting of all the groups I just listed. Every action they take, gives them power and wealth at your expense. It is of no concern to them if you die as a result of their efforts to subjugate us.

Will it Ever be the Same Again?

When you look at what business establishments our Government has deemed essential you’ll see an interesting pattern. They’ve shut down the restaurants but are keeping the grocery stores and supermarkets open. No socializing and mingling but you must keep the masses fed. The drug stores are kept open to keep us medicated. Isn’t it also interesting that the gas prices plummeted to recent record lows around the exact time this thing hit. It is also curious how the supply chain to these essential establishments go uninterrupted. I had always heard that in a major crisis the grocery store shelves would be empty in three days but the trucks show up right on time. Maybe food shortages are the next scenario but for now, where I live, there is nothing you cannot get including toilet paper. Oh yes, I recently heard there is an effort to elevate those brave grocery store clerks to hero status who are out there risking their lives to keep America fed. Oh, please.

So, they put the masses out of work but hand out money to keep them quiet and allow them to go to the grocery stores but close all possible establishments and take away all venues that would allow the citizenry to congregate under the guise that they are protecting us. They create mandates forcing us into our homes where we cannot dialogue with our friends and neighbors. When you are outside you are actually mandated to stay six feet apart. You cannot have a group of more than five people together. Did you ever think such a world was possible just a month ago? And if you question these measures in any way, you are branded a selfish, uncaring disease spreading, potential mass murderer who should be fined or jailed.

And this is for those in the “Trump can do no wrong camp” who by the way is not my savior or the savior of mankind. What national leader takes the most powerful country in the world with a booming economy and destroys it in a matter of a few weeks? No one would do this regardless of any circumstances. What national leader would turn the control and decision process over to a couple of deep state entrenched alleged medical experts i.e.; the Abbott and Costello show staring Drs. Fauci and Birx? Amazingly they’re still in charge! In my humble opinion this is no longer a medical issue and may have never been a medical issue. Does that sound crazy to you? Hasn’t it turned into a massive effort by a very small segment of elitist to put America under the boot of the State? It feels that way to me. They have even got fellow Americans snitching on their neighbors for standing too close together…

There are several Doctors and Nurses coming forth and giving firsthand knowledge that the death rates are greatly exaggerated, that by wearing facemasks and practicing social distancing we are actually harming our own immune systems. For the first time in modern medical history we have quarantined the healthy and NOT the infected.

Australia Wants Taiwan in the WHO, No Matter What China Says

Earlier this week, I told you about how our friends Down Under aren’t taking any of China’s crap. Australia wants an investigation into the origins of the Chinese virus, so of course the Chinese aren’t happy. The virus came from China, the Chinese government lied about it and covered it up and silenced whistleblowers, and absolutely everybody knows it. But you’re not supposed to say that, because China is full of Chinese people and therefore criticizing them is racist. So when China threatened economic sanctions and Australia told ‘em to stuff it, that was bad and it made libs angry.

Well then, they sure ain’t gonna like this. Eryk Bagshaw and Anthony Galloway, The Age:

Australia will support Taiwan’s return to the World Health Organisation as an observer four years after it was ousted by Beijing, risking another diplomatic spat.

Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, China has reportedly threatened to cut medical supplies to the Netherlands after the latter had renamed its embassy in Taiwan from “The Netherlands Trade and Investment Office” to “Netherlands Office Taipei.”

As explained by Representative of the Embassy, Guy Wittich, the name was simplified due to a surge in activities in new areas, besides trade and investment, between the two countries. Interestingly, several other countries such as Australia, Britain, and Japan have similarly simplified the names of their embassies in Taiwan. As of May 2, the Chinese virus has infected 39,791 and claimed had 4,893 lives.

The death toll from a prison riot in western Venezuela has risen to at least 47, with 75 wounded, an opposition politician and prisoners’ rights group said Saturday.

“At the moment we have been able to confirm 47 dead and 75 wounded,” deputy Maria Beatriz Martinez, elected from Portuguesa state where the Los Llanos prison is located, told AFP.

The Venezuelan Prison Observatory (OVP) rights group also gave the same tally, calling the violence a “massacre,” and both confirmed that all of the dead were detainees.

UK Border Officials Ordered Not to Routinely Wear Masks

UK Border Force officials have told staff that they are not allowed even to wear their own masks routinely at work, according to claims, despite two officers having already died of coronavirus.

Border Force staff have claimed that if they are carrying out passport and customs checks, dealing with a high number of members of the public, they are not allowed to wear personal protection equipment (PPE). Reportedly, only staff who are dealing with those suspected of having the Chinese virus or when processing illegal aliens may protect themselves.

Apparently, Internet Archives Are a Villain, Preventing Activists From Fully Censoring Content They Object to

It’s almost as if the human cost of the coronavirus pandemic is secondary to some minds — not just the lives, the jobs, and the civil liberties lost due to it. All some seem to care about is a carefully curated political and ideological message.

We Are Currently Facing Political, Economic, Ideological Corruption on a Global Scale

After doing an enormous amount of reading over the past couple of months from a multitude of various sources, (since there is no more yard work I can do and the floors are now double waxed) I have come to realize that the all inclusive Aristocracy of Humanists mean to cull the herd, no matter the cost. The World of Controllers have imposed their will in every way possible during this ‘lock down’ of freedom. They are phrasing the snail’s pace re-opening as a ‘new normal’ to be ‘observed by all responsible members of society’. If you DON’T observe their parameters you will be shunned, marginalized and diminished publicly, or better yet, put on notice that by leaving your dwelling or personal property, you will be endangering the rest of humanity with your willful negligence to others’ safety. Don’t forget, we may well need certificates of vaccination to move about freely. Yes, I have read where that is a distinct possibility being considered by the hierarchy of the controlling bodies.

We are watching the accelerated unfolding of their new order of existence of limitations on a grand scale…and it’s meant to completely reorganize life on this planet, to THEIR design. Gone will be the US Constitution, because of it’s liberating protection of inherent human rights. After all, these folks believe that human rights are what the almighty ‘government’ SAYS they are, not what God gave us in the first place. No longer will people be able to claim that their rights are unalienable, as it states in our Declaration of Independence, and further ensconced in our Constitution, but rather what The Powers That Be decide your rights are, limited and austere, so as to protect the earth’s environment with it’s ‘limited resources’ thereby providing for their allegorical global goal of sustainable development.

We find a hint at the globalist mindset from one of the mack-daddy’s of all globalist Puppet Masters, the insidiously evil Henry Kissinger: “While the assault on human health will — hopefully — be temporary, the political and economic upheaval it has unleashed could last for generations. No country, not even the U.S., can, in a purely national effort, overcome the virus. Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program.” Wall Street Journal, 4/3/20. The man is simply horrifying.

The virus didn’t unleash economic upheaval, the Bureaucracies of Control did!

YouTube Top Official Mocks Content Creators ‘In Their Basement’

Every YouTube employee should get down on their knees and thank the video creators, mostly working from home, for making that site an enormous success over the years. Instead, the attitude emanating from YouTube recently has been one of denigration and mockery of those same creators in favor of promoting mainstream media channels despite the fact that YouTube has grown primarily because viewers wanted an alternative to the MSM output.

The latest example of a YouTube official sneering at the very creators who brought them to the table of success comes in the form of YouTube Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan mocking the people, who made his big salary possible, as “espousing their opinions…in their basement.”

  1. Merkel is the biggest traitor to Germany in German history , I don’t have any idea what is going on with Germans who still voting for Her and Her party CDU. You have to be totally blind and deaf to do that , that old rug destroyed not only Germany but whole continent with a help of Soros, UN. WHO. And on and on , …unbelievable..

  2. Thank you Ronnie Regan. You got the deballing rolling. One million illegals to start. Dump all those former taxpaying poor people. Cannon [redacted] fodder for the man wars and lousy with disease feminism onto the streets of Los Angeles and elsewhere. Cut all that first world social structure. We don’t need no stinking healthcare and housing yoke. Socialism for the rich only. No more rules and responsibility. Money, stuff and just in time makes frei (sic). Reaping what you sew? So easy for Cowboy Ron to keep it simple stupid. And then there was Clinton.

  3. Regarding the pearl clutching ‘descent into darkness and death of democracy in Hungary’ narrative being pushed by the liberal left leaning press I submit this excerpt from 20 April:

    Hungary’s state of emergency does not violate or contradict any European regulations, stated European Commission Vice President for Values and Transparency Věra Jourová during a Sunday debate program on Czech TV.

    During the show, both she and MEP Alexandr Vondra discussed the state of Hungarian democracy, with Jourová saying that although the European Commission has previously expressed concerns about the possible threat to democracy in Hungary, she had to admit that there is little basis to do so during the coronavirus crisis.

    Jourová explained that a state of emergency is a sovereign decision of the country, which inevitably leads to the restriction of individual freedoms and the strengthening of the power of the state, which has also occurred in other European countries during this crisis period.

    Her admission that Hungary’s state of emergency law is in accordance with Europe’s regulations comes at the same time that a number of European politicians have called for Hungary to be removed from the European Union often based on misleading media reports…
    Czech MEP considers attacks on Hungarian government unfair
    Responding to Jourová’s statements, MEP and former Czech Foreign Minister Alexandr Vondra said that he appreciates that the European Commission finally read the Hungarian emergency law before judging it.

    Vondra pointed out that some left-wing media outlets published footage of the Hungarian army taking control of companies that Viktor Orbán’s government described as strategic.

    But, as Vondra emphasized, such pictures were biased. The army did not enter the companies to take over production but to offer security for buildings and aid in transporting goods. Similarly, the military does not control the Hungarian central bank or local hospitals.

    Vondra compared the Hungarian and Czech emergency laws. The rules differ, such as requiring the army in Hungary to do what firefighters are doing in the Czech Republic. However, there’s nothing wrong with that measure, said Vondra.

    Vondra concluded that in a situation of coronavirus crisis where human lives are at stake, the European Commission should address more critical issues than Hungarian democracy.

    Moreover, in several countries, such as France, the current restrictive measures are much stricter than in Hungary. Therefore, Vondra considers the attacks on the Hungarian government to be disproportionate.

    And yet this fascinating bit of TRUTH has yet to see the light of day in any mainstream media. And the bashing of a country for not toeing the line continues unabated.

  4. This Iranian experience can be useful.

    HERAT, Afghanistan (Reuters) – Afghan officials on Sunday launched a hunt to retrieve bodies of Afghan migrants from a river in a western province after reports that Iranian border guards tortured and threw Afghans into the river to prevent their entry into Iran.

    I found this link on the blog of a migrant human rights activist and IOM grant recipient under the heading “Labor Migration Weekdays”
    Why do Afghan migrant workers appear to me in this way?

    • Bless their cold islamic hearts. At least they know what to do with invading orcs. Every one they kill is one fewer to rape European women and one fewer to sell drugs to European youth. I’d like to buy them all a beer but its Ramadan and they (allegedly) don’t drink anyways.

  5. “Speaking under the pseudonym “Ella”, the woman revealed that she was called “a white s**g, a white c***, a white whore, a white b***h and a f****** gori which is their name for a white person” by her abusers, who raped her more than 100 times in Yorkshire, Northern England.”

    *yawn*

    Just another day in paradise…

    You are not alone.The same happens in my country.

    And again you are not alone,These precisely
    we were discussing a few days ago with friends.

    Tomorrow we are free,we are going to live normally as before no matter what the gov says.That will be a bloodless revolution.

  7. Recently there was an article about the Great Battle between Africans and Chechens at St. Sulpice. https://voiceofeurope.com/2020/04/france-50-chechens-storm-migrant-reception-center-and-attack-african-rivals/
    A Chechen version of what happened is published on the official page of the Assembly of Chechens in Europe (!!!). What a pity you can’t read it in the original!
    https://www.facebook.com/304010963606057/posts/529353134405171/

    … A member of the Assembly of Chechens in Europe described in detail the picture of the incident from the words of direct eyewitnesses.
    In the local press, this was described exactly the opposite, exposing Chechens, who rushed to help and save their compatriots, as aggressive perpetrators.

    … A young Chechen named Ayub went out for an evening walk with his three-year-old son. While the young dad was carried away by the answer to the SMS that arrived, his son rushed forward and managed to run up to the Africans playing the ball, he just touched the ball set for the penalty spot. At that moment, one of the adult Africans twice hit the face of the baby. Stunned by this spectacle, the father of the child Ayub stood up for his son, but immediately from all sides, tribesmen of the one who hit the child came upon him.

    …Apparently, the local Chechens somehow learned about this incident. A group of young people entered the territory and had a conversation with unbelievable hooligans and warned them about the consequences of their behavior, after which everyone went home.

    But the Africans, stricken in their ambitions and heated with alcohol, longed for revenge. They began to throw stones at the windows of the room where Ayub and his family lived, beat the door with bats and iron pipes.
    … Learning about what had happened and fearing an undesirable development of the situation with the Africans, on April 24, the Chechens left for a place in a small group in three cars and before reaching the hotel, stopped for gasoline. At that time, up to a couple of dozen Africans flew into them from all sides, holding bats, knives and bricks in their hands ..

    Next comes a long and very funny description of the battle.

    And here Philip appears from the article:

    … During the rescue of young Chechens, someone noticed how the instigator of all this ran into the hotel restaurant and followed him. In the same place, that prejudiced guard “Philip” also fell under his hot hand, misinforming the police to cover the ongoing crime, deceiving the police who arrived at the scene, and endangering the lives of young people.
    In the media, this dishonest hotel security guard by the name of Philip is exposed as a victim of aggression by the Chechens, hiding the original reason for what happened, while exaggerating the number of Chechens themselves who defended the victims, trying to denigrate the brave and respectful act of the children, thanks to whom they were saved in than an innocent young family.

    … This incident requires proceedings by the competent authorities. The fact that the police are still refusing to accept the statement from the injured party of the Chechens indicates a gross violation of the law and indicates that the police do not want to investigate this case and understand all this on the basis of the law on the protection of the lives of children and citizens, living in the area.

    • Remember, remember, the Fifth of November
      Gunpowder treason and plot
      I see no reason why gunpowder treason
      Should ever be forgot…

    • In America Feminism is cancer. It is not for equal rights. It is a man hating group of woman who murder their unborn babies.

  8. CDU, SPD and Greens for muezzin call?
    Several parliamentary groups are now in favor of agreeing to exemptions, at least for the time of Ramadan.

    Dear Gates of Vienna: The CDU / CSU parliamentary group does not advocate a temporary exception or any other general approval of the Muezzin call in Germany.
    Union political group spokesman Mr de Vries has expressed his personal opinion. I ask you to correct this immediately.
