Airlines on Track to Lose $157 Billion as Global Slump Worsens; IATA Chief Negative on ‘Immunity Passports’

Airlines are on track to lose up to $157 billion between this year and next year, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) — a sharp increase over their June projection of $100 billion in losses they made in June for the same period.

The new projection includes a $118.5 billion deficit for 2020, and at least $38.7 billion for 2021, according to Reuters, which suggests that the bleak outlook “underscores challenges still facing the sector despite upbeat news on development of COVID-19 vaccines, whose global deployment will continue throughout next year.”

British Economy Shrinks by Most in 300 Years Thanks to COVID, Chancellor Warns

Just days after UK Prime MInister Boris Johnson confirmed that the 2nd English COVID-19 lockdown would soon come to an end (as England is expected to revert back to the tiered system of restrictions that preceded it), Chancellor Rishi Sunak on Wednesday shared some grim numbers about the state of the British economy with Parliament.

With global stocks on track to clinch their strongest monthly performance in modern history, Sunak warned that the British economy is set to contract by by more than 11% in 2020, the biggest annual contraction in 300 years — a period that has included at least one other global pandemic, and many, many wars.

It’s no secret that the UK has been one of the hardest-hit developed nations. With one of the highest COVID-19 death tolls in the world, British leaders have imposed some of the harshest restrictions on movement and businesses in all of Europe.

With traders’ eyes looking beyond Q4 GDP and to Q1 2021, where some banks such as GDP are already expecting a double dip with a —1.0% contraction forecast, few will care how or why the BEA revised its estimate of the record Q3 GDP, but for the record, moments ago the Dept of Commerce announced that in the third quarter, GDP rose an annualized 33.1%, unchanged from the first estimate released in October, and on top of consensus expectations.

“Pandemic of Crime” — LA Homicides Hit Decade Highs

This past weekend, a surge in violent crime resulted in Los Angeles’ 300th homicide for 2020, a bloody benchmark not seen since the dark days of the 2009 financial crisis, reported LA Times.

Killings have risen 25% over last year, and shootings climbed by more than 32%, reflecting a similar trend across many other US metro areas (read: here & here) as defunding the police and socio-economic implosions and the virus-pandemic have left urban areas in chaos.

LAPD Police Chief Michel Moore said, “with the health pandemic, we don’t just cross our arms and say, ‘It is what it is.’ We’re taking all types of efforts to flatten the curve, to lower the impact, to save lives. And that’s what I’m asking for us to do with this violent crime. We have a pandemic of crime right now.”

Bribed: Subverting American Universities

A recent governmental report exposes the “purchased” influence foreign nations have on America’s most prestigious universities and, as a result, on what America’s current and upcoming generations of analysts and policymakers will think and believe.

More than one-third of the nearly $20 billion in foreign donations and contracts made to American universities between just 2014 and 2020 were never disclosed as required by federal law, according to “Institutional Compliance with Section 117 of the Higher Education Act of 1965,” a Department of Education report released on October 20, 2020.

Among those “gifts” were more than $3 billion from the Muslim Brotherhood’s number one state backer, Qatar; more than $1.1 billion from the chief disseminator of “radical” Islamic ideology, Saudi Arabia; and nearly $1.5 billion from China.

Cancel Culture, Part 3: Asymmetrical Warfare

Asymmetrical warfare is exactly what is being perpetrated on America today — except the ‘formal military’ of that definition is absent. We watch television, we see people attacked and killed, buildings destroyed, parts of cities taken over by ignorant dregs of society. And we don’t see many officials doing anything to stop it. Instead, many are abetting these scumbags. Mayors are telling police to stand down; many are defunding their police departments. And now, we are seeing the brazen attempt to steal an election.

One of the most up-front examples of asymmetrical warfare is this election with:

some states not requiring voter ID, with thousands of ballots sent to the dead, who then voted — early and often, with the counting in many key places stopped at night and the watchers sent away while truckloads of ballots were brought in, and with machines moving ballots from one candidate to the other.

This was brazen, in-your-face asymmetrical warfare.

We are looking at a coup being staged via asymmetrical warfare. And watching how even intelligent people are accepting the lie that the election is so very close that we have to wait for days or longer to know the outcome.

Convicted Killer Scott Peterson Among Death Row Inmates Who Scammed Over $400,000 in Fraudulent COVID Benefits

Today in “why the Federal government and the state of California should not be in the business of capital management” news…

The infamous Scott Peterson was among other death row inmates who were able to fraudulently receive Covid unemployment benefits administered by California, according to analysis released Tuesday.

Prosecutors in California say they uncovered a “massive scam” that allowed more than $400,000 in California state benefits to be paid to inmates at San Quentin State Prison. This includes Peterson, who is famously in prison for the killing of his wife, Laci Peterson, and his unborn son.

The Los Angeles Times was the first to report the fraud, which is being called by nine local DA’s “the most significant fraud on taxpayer funds in California history.”

Doctor Who Demanded Mandatory Mask Law Pictured Partying Maskless on Boat Surrounded by Bikini-Clad Women

The world’s so-called “hottest doctor,” who has repeatedly called for mandatory mask laws and social distancing, was pictured maskless partying on a boat in Miami while surrounded by bikini-clad women.

Mikhail Varshavski, known as ‘Dr. Mike’ online, completely contradicted his own advice by throwing a ‘super-spreader’ 31st birthday party for himself on November 12.

“A picture of Varshavski on a boat in Sunset Harbor surrounded by 14 other people — most of them bikini-clad women — has since done the rounds with his fans calling him out for hypocrisy,” reports the Daily Mail.

Facebook Comments Likely to be the Next Censorship Target of Corporate Media

Facebook is coming under a fresh round of fire from corporate media, and this time not only for content published on the world’s biggest social network and allowing users’ to have varied political and other affiliations — but also because of comments that are viewed as problematic, yet left outside of reach of fact-checkers and censorship otherwise happening on the platform.

A lengthy opinion piece in the New York Times is based on the author “borrowing” access to their Facebook accounts from two persons whom he describes as “boomers” whose conservative views changed because of Donald Trump, turning them into Biden voters, who think that having political and ideological differences and expressing them on social networks means US politics is toxic, while those platforms are polarizing.

The author’s mission was to discover what these unnamed boomers’ Facebook feeds looked, and felt like, and the verdict is that it was “a nightmare:” they are able to see posts from family and friends’ domestic life, but also pro-Trump and anti-Biden memes, “conspiratorial misinformation,” and content that doesn’t have “context.” (But that’s because they’re social media posts, rather than news articles or academic papers, and even those are hard to trust these days.)

Feces Complaints in San Francisco Drop to Lowest Level in 3 Years Amid Pandemic

The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit analyzed 311 complaint data from April 1 to Nov. 13 and compared it to the same time period in previous years to gain insight into how the global health emergency may be impacting the cleanliness of San Francisco’s infamously dirty streets.

The data shows more calls for help to clear trash from San Francisco streets than in the previous year, but fewer concerns about feces and needles. The changes come as stay-at-home orders have reduced the total number of people on the streets, coupled with a migration out of the city by renters. In addition, ongoing services provided to the homeless may also play a role in the decreasing number of complaints, according to city officials.

Former Pfizer Science Officer Reveals Great COVID-19 Scam

Story at a glance:

There are currently no excess deaths while cases increase.

Data show many deaths — primarily people aged 45 to 65, with equal distribution between the sexes — are mainly due to heart disease, stroke and cancer, which suggests they are excess deaths caused by lack of routine medical care due to the pandemic restrictions

The PCR test is not a valid diagnostic tool and should not be done on the scale we’re now doing it. The high rate of false positives is only fodder for needless fearmongering

Virtually no one who is asymptomatic has the live virus, but when you run the test at a cycle threshold over 30, meaning you amplify the viral RNA more than 30 times, you end up with a positive test even if the virus is inactive and noninfectious

According to Michael Yeadon, Ph.D., a former vice-president and chief scientific adviser of the drug company Pfizer, very few people will need the COVID-19 vaccine as the mortality rate is so low and the illness is clearly not causing excess deaths

Huge Court Win Lets Trump Present Ballot Evidence, Could Overturn Nevada Result

In its first court victory, a Nevada judge has agreed to let the Trump campaign present its evidence that fraud and illegalities plagued the state’s election, enough to reverse Joe Biden’s win and set an example for other state challenges.

According to Trump officials, the judge set a Dec. 3 hearing date and is allowing 15 depositions. What’s more, the campaign plans to present its evidence that could result in the rejection of tens of thousands of mail-in ballots in Democratic Clark County where Biden ballots outnumbered Trump ballots by 91,000 in unofficial results.

Parler CEO Slams “Disinformation Campaign” Saying the Platform Had Been Hacked

The anti-censorship social media platform, Parler, says that it’s facing a disinformation campaign insinuating that the platform has been hacked. John Matze, the company’s CEO, has released a statement in an effort to quash the accusations against the platform, stating that the company’s “databases are hidden behind multiple layers of security and are not accessible via the web.”

The rumors about Parler originated after a screenshot from a WordPress site started making the rounds six months ago. Since then, the company has kept reiterating the fact that it does not use WordPress products or databases. The company CEO Matze commented that the conspiracy is “irresponsible” and is based on a “techie” looking WordPress configuration file that is “only capable of confusing a journalistic hack, not an actual hacker.”

Sidney Powell Promises “Biblical” Lawsuit Coming in Vote Fraud Cases as She Accused Georgia Governor of Corrupt Deal With Dominion

Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell has been dropping bombshells like a boss over the past several days as she prepares to file what she described as a lawsuit of “biblical” proportions in Georgia, alleging massive electronic vote fraud that flipped several states from President Trump to Joe Biden.

In an interview with Newsmax TV, Powell also accused Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger of making a deal to purchase Dominion Voting Systems that included some kind of kickback on the $100 million price tag.

Asked about the state’s election results being certified for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden over the weekend, Powell blew it off.

“That’s a total farce. Georgia’s probably going to be the first state I’m gonna blow up, and Mr. Kemp and the secretary of state need to go with it because they’re in on the Dominion [Voting Systems] scam with their last-minute purchase or reward of a contract to Dominion of $100 million,” she said, going on to suggest that Georgia law enforcement officials should be investigating that.

South Carolina Man Convicted in Plot to Attack White House & Trump Tower

A South Carolina man who was radicalized by ISIS — possibly via materials spread over the Internet (it sometimes seems like social media companies like Twitter have dedicated more resources to suppressing conservative voices than ISIS recruiters) — has just been convicted over plotting to attack the White House, and a few other locations including Trump Tower.

Kristopher Sean Matthews, 34, pleaded guilty to conspiracy over his plan to provide material support to ISIS in a hearing before a US magistrate judge in San Antonio.

Matthews acknowledged at the hearing that he had conspired with 22-year-old Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Cost, Texas, to share bomb-making information, starting in May 2019. The two also conspired to radicalize and recruit other individuals to support the international ISIS organization.

Witch Hunt: Democrats Intimidate 7 of Trump’s ‘Thousands of Attorneys’ To Withdraw With Death Threats, Harassment

Since the November 3 election, Democrats have been conducting a concerted campaign to doxx, harass and intimidate lawyers who work with President Donald Trump’s campaign or other Republicans on election integrity.

In total, 7 lawyers in five separate firms have successfully withdrawn as legal counsel from contentious 2020 election cases.

November 8th: Snell & Wilmer partners Brett Johnson and Eric Spencer November 12th: Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP’s Ronald Hicks and Carolyn McGee November 16th: Linda Kerns, John Scott and Douglas Bryan Hughes

Linda Kerns’ withdrawal came after a barrage of death threats put her under protection by U.S. Marshals.

One of the abusive calls Kerns received was from a lawyer at Kirkland & Ellis, the firm representing the opposing side. The judge in the case declined to sanction Kirkland & Ellis but admitted the call was “really bad form”.

Your Conservative Vote Won’t Save America From Socialism!

How are the free people of America going to stop the onslaught of socialism, radical environmentalism and the move towards one-world government? If the brainwashed socialists and the radical environmentalists have the majority vote, or if they cheat to make it appear that they have the majority vote, your conservative vote can’t override their majority vote and their radical agenda prevails. Unless, the judicial system can expose the cheating and correct the vote, nothing will change. If those who count the vote are not honorable, the cheating will go on without interruption and the judicial system will be unable to expose or stop it. At that point all integrity in the American voting system will have been lost and the “good faith and credit” of the American government will have evaporated. In such event the socialist colluders and racketeers will rule.

Now that America has been fully immersed in socialism, radical environmentalism and the one-world-order for five score and ten, is there any hope of undoing what has been done, when so many American citizens have forsaken freedom and liberty in exchange for the phantom veil of government-provided security and comfort? How can we turn back the clock to a time when Americans were self-reliant instead of dependent? How do we return to a time when we took responsibility for our actions instead of being excused for them because someone convinced us that we are victims of society’s ills? What makes us think we can re-invent the past when the rule of law meant something; or when there were individuals with individual rights; or the justice system administered true justice? Why did we let America morph into a collective where only the collective has rights? That IS socialism!

Penguin Random House Staff Melts Down After Learning They’re Publishing Jordan Peterson’s New Book

The staff at Penguin Random House Canada had a meltdown at an “emotional town hall” over the company’s decision to publish psychologist Jordan Peterson’s latest book, according to Vice. Dozens of additional employees have filed “anonymous complaints”, the report notes.

On Monday, the publisher said they would publish Peterson’s new book, Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life by Peterson, which is going to be out in March 2021. We’re guessing none of these additional 12 rules includes setting fire to a Wendy’s or throwing a brick through a Target window to steal T-shirts. Hopefully instead, the book offers up a take on how to conduct yourself as an employee of a company without throwing an emotional temper tantrum anytime the boss makes a decision you don’t like.

One “junior employee” at PRH said of Peterson: “He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him.”

Assailant in Swiss Knife Attack Was Jihadist, Say Police

A Swiss woman who knifed a victim in the neck and grabbed another by the throat in a department store in the Swiss city of Lugano on Tuesday was a known jihadist who fell in love with a militant online and tried to meet him in Syria, say police.

Federal prosecutors have called the incident in the Italian-speaking southern canton of Ticino a suspected terrorist attack and taken charge of the investigation.

“Police investigations in 2017 revealed that the woman had formed a relationship via social media with a jihadist fighter from Syria,” the Federal Office of Police (Fedpol) tweeted on Wednesday.

Turkish authorities turned her back from the border to Syria when she tried to travel there to meet the man and returned her to Switzerland at the time, it said.

“The woman was suffering from mental health problems at this time. After returning to Switzerland, she was admitted to a psychiatric clinic,” Fedpol said, adding that she had not come to Fedpol’s attention in any terror-related investigation since 2017…

Attack of the Establishment: All Living UK Former Prime Ministers Demand Continued Foreign Aid Spending

Five former globalism-backing prime ministers are putting pressure on Boris Johnson to ditch plans to lower the UK’s aid commitment to divert taxpayer money back into the country to counteract the devastation to the British economy caused by the Chinese coronavirus.

It was under Tory David Cameron’s rule that Britain became legally obliged to spend 0.7 per cent of GDP on foreign aid, which was followed by years of reports of misspending of British taxpayers’ money. Cameron had enacted the measures into law in 2015, but it was the fulfilment of the pledge by Tony Blair ten years earlier, based on the target set by the United Nations.

Europe Must Stand Up to Hungary and Poland

by George Soros

The European Union cannot afford to compromise on the rule-of-law provisions it applies to the funds it allocates to member states. How the EU responds to the challenge to those provisions now posed by Hungary and Poland will determine whether it survives as an open society true to the values upon which it was founded.

European Parliament Plans to Impose Resolution on Polish Abortion Laws in Another Strike at Country’s Sovereignty

On Wednesday, the European Parliament will hold a debate concerning abortion law in Poland in response to the Polish Constitutional Court decreeing that eugenic abortion is incompatible with the Polish constitution. MEPs are also to pass a resolution about Poland’s abortion laws during the deliberations.

Polish Law and Justice party (PiS) MEP Patryk Jaki points out that the debate and resolution coincides with the discussions surrounding the EU budget and the rule of law mechanism. He believes that, in the future, accusations from the EU concerning breaking rule of law in terms of reproduction rights will be launched against Poland, putting the country’s conservative position on the issue at threat.

Jaki explained that there is a worry that such an approach from the European Parliament may carry over to stripping Poland of EU funds.

France: Muslim Stabs Man and Repeatedly Screams ‘Allahu Akbar’ While Resisting Arrest

Negative Mask Study Finally Gets Published

A new study showing that the recommendation to wear masks “did not reduce the infection rate among wearers by more than 50%” has finally been published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

The study, which followed 4,800 Danish citizens in spring and early summer 2020, appeared in preprint several weeks ago, but had been largely ignored by medical journals until now. In a commentary for MedPageToday, Dr. Vinay Prasad, a physician and associate professor at UC San Francisco, said the study was most likely shunned at first because “we have such strong emotions toward masks.”

In other words, the world has become sold on the idea that masks are what make the difference in the pandemic’s spread that emotions have gotten in the way of true science and the topic has turned political. However, he added that this study is “well done, thoughtful, useful and what we need more of.”

What the study shows, he said, is that in places like Denmark with moderate transmission, “there is insufficient evidence to suggest wearing a mask as you go about daily errands will protect you from infection.

Do Rzeczy came under fire for bringing up the issue of Polexit on the cover of its most recent publication, prompting Lisicki to respond to his critics.

Lisicki said he believes that for the last few years Poland has been experiencing an EU which has increasingly looked to subject Poland to Western Europe’s political ideology.

Think Tank Proposes UK Free Speech Act

A new paper authored by Adam Smith Institute’s legal fellow and technology lawyer Preston J. Byrne explores the state of freedom of speech in the UK and suggests that current problems the country is facing in this area could be solved by adopting rules protecting free speech modeled after the First Amendment of the US Constitution. )

As things stand, UK citizens can accuse others and even send them to prison for “crimes” like feeling offended by their speech, or finding that speech distressing or uncomfortable. But proper free speech protections should extend all the way to things that may be understood as “loathsome and hateful,” Byrne notes.

China Proposes a Global Cyberspace Community, While Chinese Citizens Are Still Heavily Censored

Simultaneously as it is keeping much of the outside internet out of the bounds of its Great Firewall, China is prepared to cooperate with other countries in order to create a common, global cyberspace community that would focus on the underlying infrastructure — which China’s leading tech companies can serve well.

The idea to build this “community” was floated in a letter penned by President Xi Jinping and read at this year’s Wuzhen World Internet Conference, reports are saying.

Now in its seventh iteration, the conference, which Beijing uses to promote and “export” its model of restricted and controlled internet, in the past saw participation from Apple and Google CEOs Tim Cook and Sundar Pichai. This year, along with representatives of Chinese giants Alibaba and ZTE, Qualcomm and Cisco CEOs Steve Mollenkopf and Chuck Robbins are also taking part via video.

Empty Hotels on Canary Islands Fill With Migrants After Massive Influx From Africa

The Canary Islands, which belong to Spain, are bearing the brunt of a migrant wave that is ten times larger this year than last year. In the last month alone, 8,000 migrants have arrived from Africa. Now, Madrid is under pressure to negotiate the issue of illegal migration with Morocco and other African states but refuses to move the migrants to mainland Spain.

The Canary Islands are a popular tourist destination, even during the pandemic. The disease spread much more slowly on the islands than in the rest of Spain, which was hit hard by the first and second waves of coronavirus.

In recent weeks, however, migrants have been filling accommodation capacity instead of tourists, resulting in hotels and apartments hosting about 4,000 migrants. The owners of the lodgings have been calling for the expulsion of the migrants from the islands for two weeks.

Migrant-Smuggling German NGOs Are Trying to Silence Free Press

The silencing of independent media critical of NGOs based in Germany is raising fears about freedom of the press in the country.

The censorship case has to do with dozens of NGO volunteers and employees who were arrested by Greek authorities in September, which were accused of espionage, ties to organized crime and people smuggling networks. As Remix New previously reported, the NGOs, some of them based in Germany and Norway, have allegedly co-ordinated their operations with Turkish people-smuggling gangs to bring over 3,000 illegal migrants to European shores, mostly to Greek and Italian ports.

Members of the pro-migrant NGOs were reportedly illegally monitoring the radio traffic of Frontex and Greek coastguard ships in order to avoid detection. In critical moments, they may have also flooded Coast Guard ship radios with false signals in order to confuse authorities. These messages must have either come from a ship or from the Island of Lesbos. There are also accusations that Greek Coast Guard communications were monitored.

  1. Now Japan will have millions of the third worlders and transform into a dhimmi multiculti paradise, because that just worked out so well for the absolute dumpster fire known as Englandistan didn’t it?

    • The Japanese will never let these dregs of the 3rd world in. If they think whitey is racist, you haven’t been around the Japanese. LOL

      • Thank you. When one sees what has already gone down in Western Europe. The great cities of London and Paris. Tokyo already has a very tiny pock mark. How it started everywhere else. We shall see.

  2. Four years for an African drugging and raping a French woman? and here I was thinking the French invented the guillotine that was perfectly suitable for dealing with this kind of enrichment.

    • Hopefully the guillotine will not be brought back for the wrong reasons. i.e. very halal. It will take serious leadership. In France that could be a real man or real woman. .

  3. “Convicted Killer Scott Peterson Among Death Row Inmates Who Scammed Over $400,000 in Fraudulent COVID Benefits”

    Who is running the prisons? Scam artists making fortunes, drug kingpins running their empires, gang lords controlling our streets. We need prison reform now! Every prison official needs to sit down and watch Cool Hand Luke and get on board with the program.

    “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; ……
    It will bring an ever lasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.” ~ Samuel Adams

  5. Why has this g soros not been arrested? If he’s behind financing of myriad ngos that are set up to support his open society tyranny?

    So these globalist club people, are free to roam the earth, and take over the world,
    And lead the human race into a matrix communist slavery?

    And eussr, unelected gang in Brussels, leading enabling the third world invasion of Europe, creating so called hate speech laws to silence any dissent, we are already living under communist dictatorship as of now, since March.

    Our world is split, we cannot live with the other 47% brainwashed communists, to go out now, it’s a no go to meet strangers in social settings, dangerous to engage in conversation, because there witch hunt going on, who are the leftists, who is on the right,

    Its easy to get into altercations in bars, cafes, or public,
    I reccomend highly to carry weapons at all time, when you go outside, and have u vid cam ready to flick on in an instant,
    To increase or shore up your home security, fencing, gates, cctv, guard dog, and be vigilant now, because there’s millions out of work, lost jobs, businesses, and living on food charity’s, no cash,
    No income,

    Just a few days without food, people will be willing to steal, or rob, to survive,

    The danger right now is real!

    Be careful friends be careful,

  6. Another warning!

    I advise all here who post, use Indy, to at all times use VPN,
    to secure your communications private from isps, and others who may now be monitoring internet, and email comes,

    Do not use free email services,

    Use, paid a email service, that has ssl tls provided in email set up protocols,
