In other news, a 16-year-old Tatar in Russia shouted “Allahu Akhbar” at police and called them the “enemies of Allah”. When he attacked them with a knife, the officers shot him dead.

“Remdesivir for COVID-19” Study Accidentally Proved Effectiveness of Hydroxychloroquine

The use of Remdesivir for COVID-19 was authorized by the FDA based on a single RCT, conducted by NIAID with the participation of Gilead Sciences, the exclusive manufacturer of Remdesivir. A final report from this study was published on October 8, five months after the drug’s authorization.

The final report shows that at least 35% of the patients were treated with Hydroxychloroquine, probably with Azithromycin. The data in the final report suggests that Hydroxychloroquine, not Remdesivir, was the main factor benefitting the patients in this study.

Nothing in the study supports the hypothesis that Remdesivir is an effective antiviral for SARS-COV-2.

The study’s own numbers show an association between RDV and increased mortality in the most severe patients. It is also possible to conclude that RDV is net harmful for most hospitalized patients.

  • The trial was conducted and reported with multiple defects, including:
  • The study was not double blind, but was reported as such
  • The pre-registered protocol was changed multiple times over the course of the trial
  • The primary outcome was changed in the middle of the trial, apparently because the researchers noticed a lack of effectiveness of their drug as tried
  • The outcome measures were subjective and not reliable

The study was marred with conflicts of interest, aggravated by the design giving NIAID and Gilead leverage over the hospitals and physicians treating patients

At least three of the study researchers-authors failed to report grants and/or personal fees received from Gilead recently…

10-Foot Python Found Under Hood of Ford Mustang in Florida

A Burmese python was found underneath the hood of a Ford Mustang in Florida, authorities announced Thursday.

The 10-foot snake was captured by officers from Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission without any reports of injuries in the city of Dania Beach, the agency wrote on Facebook.

Burmese pythons, which are not native to Florida, prey on native mammals, reptiles and birds in the southern part of the state, FWC said.

A Texas Mayor Defends the Constitution From Sharia Law

Despite a great deal of pushback and non-stop attacks from the leftist media in Texas, Beth Van Duyne, a woman of great courage managed to push the envelope off the table on Sharia’s implementation in her own U.S. city: Irving, Texas. The Mayor wasn’t aware of the extent of Sharia practiced by the Islamic Tribunal. So, she asked lawmakers at the Texas Homeland Security Forum to investigate the legality of this group in North Texas.

In a direct and powerful response, she refuted that it was authorized or approved by her office. The Islamic Tribunal was the first of its kind in the nation. Its members had begun deciding “non-criminal” cases, even though none of the tribunal members was an attorney. On her Facebook page, the mayor wrote:

“Sharia Law Court was NOT approved or enacted by the City of Irving. Recently, there have been rumors suggesting that the City of Irving has somehow condoned, approved or enacted the implementation of a Sharia Law Court in our City. Let me be clear, neither the City of Irving, our elected officials or city staff have anything to do with the decision of the mosque that has been identified as starting a Sharia Court.”

In the hope that this issue would be put to rest, the Irving City Council, headed by Mayor Van Duyne, supported a bill in Texas Legislature, HB 562, to reaffirm people would be protected from the use of foreign laws. If passed, it prohibits Texas judges or justices from the use of any foreign law in any cases where there was a possibility that a person could lose his or her Constitutional rights.

Fauci’s Treacherous Ties to China and Globalists

Story at-a-glance

A report by Dr. Peter Breggin reveals Dr. Anthony Fauci’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and globalists who have profited from the pandemic measures promoted by him as the leader of the U.S. Coronavirus Task Force.

Fauci has been the major force behind research activities that enabled the Chinese Communist Party to manufacture lethal SARS coronaviruses, which in turn led to the release — whether accidental or not — of SARS-CoV-2 from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

In collaboration with the CCP and the World Health Organization, Fauci initially suppressed the truth about the origins and dangers of the pandemic, thereby enabling the spread of the virus from China to the rest of the world.

Fauci has supported and praised Director-General of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a member of a Marxist-Leninist Ethiopian political party with a corrupt past and terrorist ties who has also been accused of covering up cholera outbreaks in Ethiopia.

Fauci recently published a paper in which he dismisses the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 was created in and released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, arguing instead for natural mutation. He also uses the pandemic to justify the “green new deal” and the globalist movement known as “the Great Reset”…

Former Dem Dave Rubin Reveals He Voted for Trump: Trump is the Only Way to Stop the Radical Left

Although Rubin doesn’t necessarily see Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as a radical himself, he sees the Biden-Harris campaign as a Trojan horse for the radical doctrine spouted by the likes of liberals like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

And Trump is “the last bulwark” to stop it, he said.

“I see Trump as basically the last bulwark to stop the radical left,” Rubin said. “Joe Biden himself may not be radically left — it’s a little unclear what Joe Biden is and what he stands for at this point — but what’s coming behind him, what the future of the Democratic Party is, is this progressivist left, this collectivist left, the AOC-Ilhan Omar Democrats, and [Biden’s] just the guy that they’re smuggling it in with and I think that is the worst set of ideas possible.

“It’s counter to everything America is all about.”

But Rubin’s vote for Trump isn’t simply a “counter-vote” against radical Democrats, he said. He also believes the president is indeed the right person for the preservation and prosperity of America.

I am posting here the most recent draft of my article about Joe and Hunter Biden — the last one seen by Intercept editors before telling me that they refuse to publish it absent major structural changes involving the removal of all sections critical of Joe Biden, leaving only a narrow article critiquing media outlets. I will also, in a separate post, publish all communications I had with Intercept editors surrounding this article so you can see the censorship in action and, given the Intercept’s denials, decide for yourselves (this is the kind of transparency responsible journalists provide, and which the Intercept refuses to this day to provide regarding their conduct in the Reality Winner story). This draft obviously would have gone through one more round of proof-reading and editing by me — to shorten it, fix typos, etc — but it’s important for the integrity of the claims to publish the draft in unchanged form that Intercept editors last saw, and announced that they would not “edit” but completely gut as a condition to publication:

The Cult of Woke: 30 Years of Inaction (Indifference?) by “Establishment Conservatives”

It is common knowledge that the Cult of Woke has conquered academia except for STEM subjects. Its minions are hard at work finding “evidence” of “systemic racism” in those. The Cult of Woke has also conquered mainstream media, Big Tech, and large portions of the business world generally. Its minions believe they’ll have one of their own in the White House soon (I’m thinking more of Kamala Harris than Joe Biden who is too white and too male, and in the early stages of dementia).

Trump isn’t doing much to stop the Cult’s advances. But at this point, what can he do? These people are good at mass mobilization, intimidation, and force. Only retaliatory force will stop them at this point. I can’t blame Trump for not wanting, say, to invoke the Insurrection Act to stop the canceling of history. To the Cult of Woke, Trump epitomizes racism and fascism. He’d be playing right into their hands. Maybe he will invoke it if he wins a second term and the Cult sets about canceling him.

If “Establishment conservatives” — most of whom aren’t conservative at all as I understand that term (here and here) — ever wonder how on Earth we got into this mess, all they have to do is look in the mirror. This is assuming they haven’t gone over to the other side! “Establishment conservatives” include anti-Trumpists like George Will, Max Boot, Erick Erickson, Jennifer Rubin, Joe Scarborough, and other well-connected and well-heeled types you’ll find on the pages of the Washington Post and other Establishment rags, or on mainstream TV networks.

One might add Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, Newt Gingrich and Lindsey Graham as Establishment Republicans who have never displayed any stable core values, which is why the Republican Party fell so easily to Trump.

Just over 30 years ago, I began sounding warnings that the then-almost-unknown cultural Marxist left was dangerous.

Details Revealed About Brahim Aouissaoui’s Actions Before Alleged France Attack

The terror suspect in the horrific knife attack in France arrived in Nice by train, changed his clothes at the station and walked over to the nearby Notre Dame Basilica with a Quran and three knives, officials said.

France’s anti-terrorist prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard said Brahim Aouissaoui, 21, a Tunisian migrant who entered the country illegally via Italy, was unknown to security services, according to Sky News.

Surveillance cameras captured him entering the Nice train station, where he changed his shoes and turned his coat inside out before walking to the church, about 1,300 feet away, just before 8:30 a.m.

Portuguese Bishop Blames European ‘Prejudices’ For Islamist Terror Attack in France

ROME — The bishop of Porto in Portugal, Manuel Linda, said Friday that Thursday’s lethal Islamist terror attack in Nice, France, was not due to Islamic animosity toward Christians but to European prejudice.

“Yesterday’s attack on the cathedral in Nice is not Islam’s fight against Christianity,” Bishop Linda wrote on Twitter. “It is the result of the prejudices of those Europeans who not only do not foster intercultural and interreligious dialogue but are always at the ready to accuse religions.”

UK Police Chief Warns Lockdown Could Spark Riots, Civil Unrest

A police chief in the UK has warned that lockdown is a “time bomb” that could eventually explode into riots and mass civil unrest.

The United Kingdom has placed its citizens under different ‘tiers’ of lockdowns depending where they are in the country, although anecdotal evidence suggests there is now mass non-compliance with the rules.

This could force authorities to become more draconian in enforcing the measures, which could in turn spark a violent backlash.

According to West Midlands commissioner David Jamieson, “We’re sitting on a time bomb here.”

UK ‘Stands in Solidarity With France, ‘ Calls on NATO to Defend the Freedom of Speech

Some welcome and surprise news from the UK. “Britain has called on its NATO allies to stay united in defending the values of tolerance and free speech,” as well as to challenge Turkey. The starting point of challenging Turkey should be to throw Turkey out of NATO.

A chorus of Islamic countries has been justifying Paty’s murder on grounds that the Muhammad cartoons constitute an intolerable “offense”; meanwhile, they present Islam as having nothing to do with terrorism. In the minds of Sharia-adherent Muslims, it is actually not terrorism to murder for a range of “offenses” including blasphemy and apostasy.

In calling for solidarity among NATO members, the UK also needs to prepare itself for Muslim outrage and possible violence, particularly if it does seriously pursue the protection of its free society and freedom of speech. However, whether Britain actually does anything remains to be seen: avoiding the label of “Islamophobia” has become the top priority in Western countries, which has provided fertile soil for Islamization and the violence associated with it, whenever Muhammad is offended.

The latest terrorist killings to rock France as tensions grow centered on the country’s firm free speech traditions as a secular republic vs. Muslim immigrant outrage over negative depictions of Muhammad in French media have grabbed international headlines, but other disturbing trends which have received much less attention suggest the violence looks to grow.

This week there have been reports of clashes between Turkish-Azeri demonstrators and Armenians on the streets of France. On Wednesday multiple videos circulated widely on social media which appear to show Muslim Turks and Azeris “hunting down” Armenian Christians as the war in Nagorno-Karabakh spills over onto the streets of Europe.

Caroline Glick: The Real Netanyahu (And Trump) Dilemma

The Nobel Peace Prize Committee’s decision to award the prize to the World Food Program this year assuaged the fears of elitists from New York to Paris and Berlin. The Abraham Accords, which include bilateral peace treaties between the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and most recently Sudan, and Israel have fundamentally changed the Middle East. They have upended fifty years of failed peace processing on the part of Western foreign policy elites who seem to fall into deeper and deeper funks with word of each new peace deal.

Newsweek’s cover story on Oct. 2 nicely encapsulated the distress. The cover featured a leering black and white photo of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a red and white headline, The Netanyahu Dilemma: Can The Nobel Prize Say No to Bibi?

By giving the prize to the World Health Organization, the committee kicked the can down the road. Maybe President Donald Trump will be defeated next week. Maybe Netanyahu will be ousted from power. And then things can return to normal, they console themselves. They will be able to forget all about the unpleasantness.

What is it about the Abraham Accords that makes the foreign policy “experts” so upset?

Three aspects of the deals really get their goat. The first is their authors. For the likes of the British Foreign Office and the Council on Foreign Relations, few are held in greater contempt than Netanyahu and Trump. The Newsweek article, which dealt with Netanyahu specifically, called him “widely loathed.” And of course, there hasn’t been a US President as despised by “the smart set” as Trump since Andrew Jackson…

How the EU is Trying to Overthrow the Israeli Government

As EU Budget Rapporteur 2019, I have been shocked to find out that the far-left and anarchist organizations protesting outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s house in Balfour Street in Jerusalem are allegedly financed from abroad, mainly by the EU and Germany.

On Sept. 30th, Likud MK and chair of the Caucus on Combating Delegitimization & Anti-Semitism Ariel Kallner wrote to German ambassador Dr. Susanne Wasum-Rainer to complain about German funding for left-wing Human Rights Defenders Fund (HRDF), which provides legal defense to the violent protestors.

As Chairman of the Knesset Caucus on Combating Delegitimization, Kallner wrote: “I would like to express my sincere concern about this intervention in Israel’s internal affairs that constitutes an undermining of its sovereignty.”

In her answer of Oct. 5, German Ambassador Dr. Susanne Wasum-Rainer denied the allegations. She claimed the German Government “does not support or fund any violent or illegal activities of civil society organizations”, and that “any organization or project funded by the Federal German government has successfully passed a thorough and transparent screening process.”

There is actually nothing transparent about German and EU funding of anti-Israel NGOs. The European Court of Auditors stated in 2018 “that the Commission was not sufficiently transparent regarding the implementation of EU funds by NGOs.”

My own party, the pro-Israel Alternative for Germany (AfD), posed a formal query to the German government July 13, asking how much funding Berlin provides to which NGOs in Israel and the PA. In its answer Aug. 7, the German government informed us (and the taxpayers we represent in Parliament) that this funding is Classified, because “organizations of civil society are victims of threats and repression” in Israel. It was not clear who the German government was accusing of “threats and repression” except possibly Israeli authorities.

According to NGO Monitor, Human Rights Defenders Fund received €58,940 from the German government 2018. According to our research on the EU Financial Transparency System, HRDF received €299,988 from the EU 2019.

According to press reports, the NGO HaMoked — Center for the Defense of the Individual is also involved in the legal defense of violent anti-Netanyahu protestors. According to NGO Monitor, HaMoked received €884,164 from the tax-funded church charity Misereor Germany in 2018, and €667,049 from the EU.

This information is not widely known in Germany. When my office contacted several leading German newspapers that usually report fairly on Israel with this explosive information, including “Die Welt” and “Bild”, we were told they were aware of it and were working on it. Still, no one has reported on this in Germany, even one month after Kallner’s letter…

Stop Harassment on Hindu Students in Bangladesh in the Name of Blasphemy

Bullying on Hindu Students to doom their career. Six Students Suspended, Arrested in a month.

Rajat Das | Dhaka | HENB | Oct 30, 2020:: In Islamic Bangladesh the Hindu students are now targeted in a new module of blasphemy to doom their career for ever. In Islamic Bangladesh, the fundamental Muslims are trying hard to bring Blasphemy Act as crime of highest count with capital punishment. But, now, the Bangladesh Police is rampantly arresting Hindu students under various sections under Digital Security Act 2018 and as its amended version in 2020 even there are no sections directly upon blasphemy. Even then, minority Hindu students in Bangladesh are continuously being persecuted for alleged Blasphemy against Islam.

These events follow a common pattern. Hackers target Facebook IDs having Hindu names, hack the IDs, and then using the hacked ID comments blasphemous post against Islam in social media. Then the screenshot of the comments is posted in a social media platform to instigate the Muslim students as well as general population especially those with radical Islamic bent of mind. Then the university authority suspends the student and a case is filed against the student in Digital Security Act (DSA). As a part of Cyber Jihad, Islamists now find the clue of blasphemy as another tool of Hindu persecution.

The few recent incidents are narrated below:…

For some of the illegal immigrants on Samos, today’s 6.6 Richter earthquake was an opportunity to start looting at the expense of the local people.

This provoked the anger of the islanders.

As soon as the tsunami hit after the earthquake and water entered the shops, some people came down from migrant center and snatched from the shops what they could. Some of them were reportedly arrested when they entered an alcohol shop and started stealing.

Mailchimp Will Now Deactivate Accounts Sending ‘False, Inaccurate, Or Misleading’ Emails

Mass mailing service Mailchimp, a US based marketing automation service, has updated its Terms of Use regarding types of content that are prohibited for distribution on the platform. In particular, the service now “does not allow the distribution of content that is, in our sole discretion, materially false, inaccurate, or misleading, in a way that could deceive or confuse others about important events, topics, or circumstances.”

The policy change comes amid reports of Mailchimp summarily deactivating the accounts of independent news outlets SGTreport and Press for Truth, according to Reclaim The Net.
