38 Shot, 6 Fatally, So Far in Chicago Weekend Violence

Six people have died and at least 32 others wounded in Chicago gun violence so far this weekend.

Four people were killed Saturday: two in Austin on the West Side and two on the South Side. One person also was killed Sunday, and another Friday night in the Burnside neighborhood on the South Side. They were all males, the youngest victim at 17 years old and the oldest being 66.

The numbers don’t include two fatal stabbing of females this weekend. A 5-year-old girl was stabbed to death Saturday morning in East Garfield Park, according to police, who arrested a potential suspect. Early Sunday, a woman in her 20s with stab wounds was pulled from the North Branch of the Chicago River.

Dan Ryan Horse Improving at Local Rescue After Fears Animal Would Need to be Euthanized, Officials Say

CHICAGO (WLS) — Nunu, the famous Dan Ryan horse is said to be improving, according to city officials.

The horse is recovering after its owner Adam Hollingsworth, also known as the “Dreadhead Cowboy,” rode the animal down the expressway Monday during the evening rush hour. Hollingsworth said the ride was in protest to bring attention to “Kids Lives Matter.”

The highway horseman was then arrested and the horse was taken into police custody after the stunt.

DOJ Sends Scathing Letter Demanding San Francisco Lift ‘Draconian’ Church Restrictions

The Justice Department is attacking San Francisco’s “draconian” restrictions on the number of people allowed at one time into houses of worship.

The city currently allows no more than one congregant at a time in any church, synagogue, mosque or other place of worship, regardless of its size.

“No government in this free country can attack religion by transforming a house of worship arbitrarily into a place for solitary confinement,” said Eric Dreiband, assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, according to a Friday DOJ news release.

“People of faith go to churches, synagogues, mosques, and other places to worship with their fellow believers, and they can do so lawfully because the First Amendment to the United States Constitution makes illegal any effort by government to prohibit the free exercise of religion,” Dreiband said.

“That we are dealing with a very serious public health crisis does not permit government to discriminate against religious worshipers by imposing a one-person-per-house-of-worship rule while permitting larger numbers of people to gather in tattoo parlors, hair salons, massage studios, and other places,” he added.

“There is no pandemic exception to the United States Constitution and its Bill of Rights.”

Federal Authorities Have Already Documented Two Cases in Which Votes Have Been “Discarded” In Key Swing States

The integrity of our elections is of paramount importance, because if our ability to choose our own leaders is compromised that undermines everything that our system of government is based upon. So every American should be hyper-sensitive to any allegation that our votes are being tampered with, because any attack on the voting process is an attack on all of us. This is one issue that should be able to unite Republicans and Democrats, and hopefully people across the political spectrum will report anything suspicious that they notice over the coming weeks. And as I become aware of troubling incidents, I will share them with my readers, because the integrity of our elections is definitely one of my hot button issues.

When I heard that some military ballots in Pennsylvania had been tampered with, that immediately set off alarm bells. Federal officials are telling us that they recently discovered that nine military ballots in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania had been “improperly opened” and “discarded”…

James Corbett: This is the Battle for Humanity! The Technocratic Enslavement End Game!

Josh Sigurdson recently spoke with James Corbett of The Corbett Report about the heightened level of tyranny throughout the world creating a prison planet over the course of 2020. With the excuse of an illness, the governments of the world have managed to use a crisis to their extreme benefit and to the absolute enslavement of the public.

Was this COVID-19 thing created in a lab? At this point, it honestly doesn’t even matter. Regardless of whether it was or was not, how’s it being used against the public? What is the ultimate end game? James digs deep into the technocratic global government being created, influenced heavily by China, and utilizing the crisis to install social credit tied to bank accounts.

This is THE ONE LAST battle for humanity as James points out. This is extraordinarily important and cannot be disregarded.

With social credit scores tied to medical tyranny, if we don’t act now, we may be done forever. Time is running out.

John MacArthur Set for New Hearing in November

John MacArthur and Grace Community Church were scheduled on Thursday for a new hearing to take place on November 13.

The decision came from a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge who refused to decide whether to hold the pastor and church in contempt for defying the ban on indoor worship services.

L.A. County officials said Grace Community Church “has not been exonerated for its violations,” and the postponement was made because of required social distancing measures.

Portland District Attorney Brings Charges Following Week of BLM-Antifa Arson Attacks

Four accused rioters in Portland are facing local charges ranging from arson to possession of a destructive device, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office has announced.

On Wednesday night, hundreds of Black Lives Matter-Antifa rioters attacked the Justice Center, shattering windows of the central police station with rocks, and setting the exterior on fire multiple times. Three Molotov cocktails were hurled at law enforcement, narrowly missing cops by inches. One explosion caused an officer’s boot to catch fire. A follow-up investigation is underway to determine who threw the firebomb in this incident. The Portland riot was organized in response to a grand jury decision to pursue a lesser charge connected to the police-involved death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Ky. 13 individuals were arrested in Portland and booked in the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Texas Prof: ‘Threat to White Masculinity’ A Predictor of COVID-19 Opinions

University of Texas-Austin political science professor Eric McDaniel published a report called “Perceptions of Threat to White Masculinity and COVID-19 in Texas,” that seeks to establish a relationship between “white masculinity” and “attitudes toward the coronavirus pandemic.”

Based on University of Texas polling data, the report seeks to explain how “the perception of a threat to White masculinity and attitudes toward the coronavirus pandemic” are related using a “White Masculinity Threat Index.”

McDaniel concludes that “the more an individual believes in the existence of a threat to White masculinity, the more likely that person is to downplay the severity of the virus, to believe it will be resolved quickly, to focus more on the economic than human harm, and is less willing to take part in private activities to stop the spread of the virus.”

The Great Conservative Migration and What it Means for the Future

The signs really began to become visible at the end of January 2020; there was an exodus of people brewing, and it was galvanizing fears on both sides of the political spectrum. The pandemic situation is cited by the mainstream media as the primary cause, but in reality, the migration had started at least 3 years earlier.

Americans were leaving certain states and cities behind by the tens of thousands, and these places were predominantly leftist in their policies and population. California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Connecticut, etc.; all of these progressive states were bleeding residents since 2017, the pandemic just accelerated the situation.

There are a number of reasons given for the dramatic shift in population, but two specific reasons stand above the rest: Economy and political ideals. The pandemic itself is only a minor motivator. Consider the fact that residents of California left the state in droves for Texas over the summer DESPITE the problem of COVID infection spikes in major metropolitan areas of the Lone Star State. People didn’t care, they just wanted to get the hell out of California as quickly as possible.

Again, the main reason given by former Californians was politics. They are conservatives or moderates that felt isolated or trapped in a far-left cesspool and they realized their future life prospects depended on them transplanting to a more free and less bureaucratic place.

The fear among conservatives was that the pandemic would smoke leftists out of their hives and that they would spread to more conservative areas and “take over”. This does not seem to be the case. In fact, it appears that most leftists are stubbornly refusing to acknowledge that their states are dying and are actively defending state policies on the web. Check out the angry and delusional comments from California progressives on this opinion article in Arizona telling them to leave their failed policies behind if they move to the state.

Whosoever Shall Save His Life Will Lose it

Over the past six months, we have investigated and reported on most of the aspects of the rapid destruction of our country and the world-wide push for a Globalist New World Order.

I’ve told you about Event 201, a “dry run” of the “coronavirus pandemic” held in New York City last October, sponsored by Bill Gates and a host of other New World Order Globalists. That was October 18th. Interestingly, that same day, the World Military Games were held in Wuhan, China. Military forces from nations around the world competed in “Olympic-style” exercises. Our country came in 35th place, by the way — behind countries like Finland, Tunisia, Kenya, and even France. Of course, China took first place, and Russia second. The United States received ZERO gold medals in these military competitions.

I also told you last time that Event 201 was supported not only by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, but also by Dustin Moskovitz and his wife. In case you forgot, they are co-founders of Facebook. So lest you are still wondering why Facebook is censoring and will soon be deleting anything posted that is conservative or Christian in nature, wonder no more.

I also discussed how closely Dr. Anthony Fauci is tied to the World Health Organization, how he has repeatedly given false and misleading information regarding the virus, and how the organization he ran gave $7.4 million to the Wuhan Virology lab for research on coronaviruses, just last year. Not to mention the fact that he “predicted” in 2016 that President Trump would definitely be faced with a major pandemic during his time in office.

You know about the fraudulent case numbers of COVID-19, how they’ve been constantly artificially inflated in order to keep us all wearing masks, keep us “social distancing,” keep our businesses and our economy shut down, keep people and businesses dependent on government welfare, keep schools closed, get even our youngest of children “used to” the idea of mask-wearing as “normal,” and provide HUGE financial incentives for hospitals and medical facilities to report as many positive cases as possible. We all know the numbers aren’t real. FEW of us know anyone who is sick, and yet we’re all still severely restricted as to where we can go, and what we’re allowed to do.

France: More Terrorism, More Silence

On September 25, in Paris, two people were stabbed and seriously wounded outside the former offices of Charlie Hebdo, where 12 of the satirical magazine’s editors and cartoonists were murdered by extremist Muslims in 2015. The suspect, in police custody, is being investigated for terrorism.

The accused murderers in the 2015 attacks are currently on trial in Paris.

Shortly before the knifing attack, on September 22, Charlie Hebdo‘s director of human resources, Marika Bret, did not come home. In fact, she no longer has a home. She was evicted after serious and concrete death threats from extremist Muslims. She decided to make her “exfiltration” public for French intelligence to alert the public to the threat of extremism in France.

“I have lived under police protection for almost five years”, she told the weekly Le Point.

An “Unimaginable Nightmare”: The Abduction, Rape, And Forced Conversion of Christian Girls in Egypt

The kidnapping, sexual abuse and forced conversion of Christian women and girls in Egypt — a “particularly vulnerable group to exploitation” that is quietly living an “unimaginable nightmare” — is rampant, with no signs of easing up. This is the finding of a report published on September 10, 2020 by Coptic Solidarity, an international organization based in Washington D.C., that works to promote equal citizenship rights for Egypt’s Christian minority.

In its 15-page report, “‘Jihad of the Womb’: Trafficking of Coptic Women & Girls in Egypt,” Coptic Solidarity documents “the widespread practice of abduction and trafficking” and estimates that there have been “about 500 cases within the last decade, where elements of coercion were used that amount to trafficking,” according to the UN’s own definitions, particularly per its “Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons Especially Women and Children.”

New Report Claims to Shed Light on SARS-Cov-2 Origin

A paper by Dr. Li-Meng Yan — a former researcher at the University of Hong Kong School of Public Health, a top coronavirus research lab — claims to present evidence showing SARS-CoV-2 likely underwent genetic manipulation

Yan previously accused the Chinese government and World Health Organization representatives in Hong Kong of covering up the Wuhan outbreak

On the morning of September 14, 2020, Yan posted a link to her paper on Twitter. Shortly thereafter, she posted another tweet saying Zenodo was “immediately hacked” and taken down once the report was posted

Yan and colleagues propose SARS-CoV-2 was made using the ZC45/ZXC21 bat coronavirus as the backbone. The receptor-binding motif in the spike protein was then manipulated to give the virus the ability to strongly bind to the human ACE2 receptor

Alina Chan, a molecular biologist at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, is yet another scientist who questions the zoonotic nature of SARS-CoV-2. Since it sprang into action fully evolved for human transmission, Chan believes the missing intermediate phase of evolution took place in a lab

Why is the Pentagon Worried About China’s Navy?

by Yasmin Rasidi

The Pentagon’s ambitious plan to boost the U.S. Navy—which came amid the escalating tension in the disputed South China Sea—has raised concern as well as a question over whether both sides will engage in a possible military confrontation.

Major Boost to the US Navy

Pentagon boss Mark Esper revealed the plan to strengthen the US Navy fleet by bringing up the amount of ships to more than 355 from the existing 293. This will require an additional budget of billions of dollars that will be disbursed starting from this year until 2045.

“To achieve this outcome, we must increase funding for shipbuilding and the readiness that sustains a larger force. Doing this, and finding the money within the Navy budget and elsewhere to make it real, is something both the Navy leadership and I are committed to doing,” Esper stated.

Judge Barrett is the Answer to Ginsburg’s Legacy of Death

By any objective assessment, a big part of her legacy was continuing abortion on demand, which has now taken 60 million unborn lives since the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973. “RIP to the more than 30 million innocent babies that have been murdered during the decades that Ruth Bader Ginsburg defended pro-abortion laws,” said Rep. Doug Collins, who is also a military chaplain.

But only three Republican Senators voted to oppose the confirmation of this pro-abortion radical back in 1993. The three Senators, in that 96-3 vote, were Senators Jesse Helms (R-NC), Don Nickles (R-OK), and Bob Smith (R-NH).

Helms called her “a pleasant, intellectual liberal” but denounced her “outrageously simplistic and callous position” in favor of abortion and against the sanctity of human life. He said she spoke of “no qualification whatsoever” in support of abortion, saying it was a matter of “personal autonomy” and “the right to be let alone and to make basic decisions about one’s life’s course.”Helms went on, “Why…in the name of God did someone not ask, ‘But Mrs. Ginsburg, what about the unborn innocent and helpless child’s right to be left alone, that child who is about to be destroyed because of specious reasoning by people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg?’“…

The late Phyllis Schlafly noted that Ginsburg was so extreme that she even wanted to write taxpayer funding of abortion into the Constitution.

Ginsburg also found another “right” that was in reality nowhere in the Constitution — gay marriage. Helms saw this coming, too, when he said that Ginsburg during her confirmation hearing that she was “likely to uphold the homosexual agenda.”

But it was mostly left to conservative leaders like Howard Phillips and Phyllis Schlafly — not Senate Republicans — to raise these concerns.

The Real Ruth Bader Ginsberg

As a Supreme Court Justice RBG swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States. That means when a case came before the Supreme Court they would judge that case according to the Constitution and what it allows and what it doesn’t allow. This is the only document that is allowed in adjudicating a case. RBG did not agree with that precept even though she swore to do just that. She believed that a lot of international laws were better than what she called the restrictions found in our Constitution. Justice Ginsburg has fired the latest salvo in the ongoing debate about the Court’s use of foreign and international law sources in constitutional adjudication. On Friday, she gave a speech to the International Academy of Comparative Law at American University, entitled “A decent respect to the Opinions of [Human]kind”: The Value of a Comparative Perspective in Constitutional Adjudication. Not surprisingly given her earlier opinions, Justice Ginsburg comes out strongly in favor of the Court’s use of foreign and international law materials to interpret U.S. law, including the Constitution. She begins with an historical defense:…

An article from CNS News reports “Given that homosexual advocates are in a full court press to lower the age of consent as low as it can go, and pro-pedophile sitting Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s documented advocacy of lowering the age of consent to 12 years old, parents should be horrified…”

Ginsburg may have “changed” her opinion on this (or pretended to) by the time of her Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Several liberal websites of course deny that she supports pedophilia, but there’s a PDF file with quotes from some of her earlier writings, which you can see for yourself.

  1. Erdogan has been barking for the last 6 months at every country around him. He never veiled his expansionist goals. Just 2 weeks ago he distributed a map in his parliament with countries around him swallowed and annexed Lebensraum.

    The map was a circle around Ankara with a radius of 700 miles, with Ankara at the centre of the neo-ottoman empire.

    Europe . . . you have nothing to fear from your honest Iago Erogan ally.

    The barker is not a fool. He is evil helped by his allies.

    • The last coup attempt must have created serious levels of non agricultural resistance for Erdogan and his inefficient farmers.

  2. The kidnapping, sexual abuse and forced conversion of Christian women and girls in Egypt — a “particularly vulnerable group to exploitation” that is quietly living an “unimaginable nightmare” — is rampant, with no signs of easing up. This is the finding of a report published on September 10, 2020 by Coptic Solidarity, an international organization based in Washington D.C., that works to promote equal citizenship rights for Egypt’s Christian minority.

    “The kidnapping, sexual abuse and forced conversion of Christian women and girls in Egypt — a “particularly vulnerable group to exploitation” that is quietly living an “unimaginable nightmare” — is rampant, with no signs of easing up.

    Why only Egypt? – Probably because the Coptic Christians are more numerous and influential than any other Christian group. But the abduction of young Christian (and Hindu. Buddhist etc) girls in muslim majority countries is so common that it is virtually a national sport and any laws forbidding it are rarely enforced. Pakistan is by far the worst offender but nothing is done about them. UN sanctions might be a solution but the UN these days is bought and paid for by the islamic gulf states and it is unlikely any resolution to impose sanctions against the islamic offenders could ever succeed.

    Maybe a solution would be for the rest of the world to impose its own version of BDS against Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt etc. It might just work.

  3. “Two Iraqi migrant brothers are on trial in a Berlin court after being accused of dragging young women into an SUV and then raping them for hours.”

    The German legal system takes this kind of offence, especially when committed by such people as these brothers, *extremely* seriously. If convicted, they’re likely to be imprisoned for four or even five years, and let out half-way through this period.

    • One German equals ten thousand literate and fifty thousand illiterate Muslim parasites. Islam and its tenth century swarms of savages may be off to a start of sorts. However it will be finished off by fair means or foul – sooner or later. Another way of considering the upcoming correction.
