Saudi Arabia Sets Big Budget Cuts for 2021

by Thomas O. Falk

Saudi Arabia is the first G20 member to announce significant budget cuts, despite a pandemic that is far from being over. As the world’s largest oil exporter, Riyadh’s decision has far-reaching impacts beyond the Gulf region. Even as many other nations focus on stimulus packages and spending, Saudi Arabia will move the opposite direction.

Saudi Finance Minister: Saudi Arabia Will Cut 2021 Spending by 7.3 Percent

The largest economy in the Gulf will cut its budget spending in the coming year by 7.3 percent to 264 billion dollars, according to Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan.

The budget cuts and the economic slump in Saudi Arabia have far-reaching global consequences: the demand of the world’s largest oil exporter for imported goods has already fallen significantly. In addition, tens of thousands of guest workers have been laid off in the oil-rich nation.

2 New Mexico Megachurches Fined for Violating State COVID-19 Regulations on Christmas Eve

Two megachurches in New Mexico were fined after they allegedly violated Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s COVID-19 executive orders by hosting packed Christmas Eve services, ABC News reports.

Legacy Church and Calvary Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico were both sent notices of “contemplated action” by the state’s health department on Monday. The notices informed the churches that they would be fined up to $10,000 along with potential “other remedies” for holding large gatherings that violated regulations intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Antifa Group Continues Occupation of Seattle-Area Hotel, Grows in Numbers, Takes Over More Rooms

On Christmas Eve, Antifa activists rented sixteen motel rooms in the Travelodge in Fife, Washington. Christmas Day they refused to leave and refused to pay for the additional nights. The activists are now demanding that local government pick up the tab and turn the motel into a shelter.

Tacoma Housing Now (THN) paid for 16 rooms for one overnight stay on Dec. 24 at the Travelodge and then moved in more than 40 people. Rebecca Parson, spokesperson for THN and local socialist activist, told The Post Millennial that they targeted that specific location because “…it had the cheapest rates in the area for the first night that we intended to pay for.”

Breaking: Georgia’s Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Elections Holds Hearing on Voting Machine Irregularities and it’s Devastating! — Live-Stream Video

Members of Georgia’s Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Elections and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing to study Georgia’s Election Laws, and their past and present impact on the current Election cycle.

They will also consider the committee report from the December 3rd meeting.

The hearing comes after a senate subcommittee held a hearing last week at the capitol to discuss perceived voting irregularities in November’s presidential election.

On election night election officials ran 15,000 ballots five times and got five different answers. They could NEVER duplicate the results from the Dominion voting machines!

The first witness from Coffee County is devastating.

She just blasted the corrupt Secretary of State.

DC Passes Bill to Vaccinate Children Without Parental Consent or Knowledge

Lawmakers in the District of Columbia (D.C.) have passed a bill allowing children to be vaccinated without parental consent or even their parents’ knowledge.

The “Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act,” B23-017, was passed in D.C. last month.

The bill that permits a child aged 11 years or older “to consent to receive a vaccine where the vaccination is recommended by the United States Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

“It also establishes that if a minor is able to comprehend the need for, the nature of, and any significant risks inherent in the medical care then informed consent is established.”

The bill not only permits children of this age to provide consent to doctors and other vaccine administrators without a parent’s knowledge or consent, but also requires school administrators, insurance companies, and medical personnel to conceal a child’s vaccination from their parents…

If this bill becomes law, The Vaccine Reaction (V.R.) warns, “it is clear that minor children will be at risk of being pressured and coerced into getting a COVID-19 vaccine behind their parents’ back.”

DOJ Charges Kenyan National With Planning 9-11 Style Attack Inside United States

The US Department of Justice recently announced charges against a Kenyan national who, as an operative of the al Qaeda connected al Shabaab terror group, was tasked with crafting and executing a 9/11-style attack on US soil.

According to the indictment, Cholo Abdi Abdullah, a 30-year-old Kenyan national, received orders from the al Shabaab commander responsible for the 2019 hotel attack in Nairobi to undertake a 9/11-style attack inside the US in the name of al Shabaab, al Qaeda’s branch in East Africa.

Girlfriend of Nashville Bomber Told Police in 2019 He Was Building Explosives in an RV, Records Show

A woman who said she was the girlfriend of the man who set off the Christmas Day explosion in Nashville told police last year he was making bombs in his recreational vehicle, according to a statement and documents the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department provided to CNN.

On August 21, 2019, police received a call from an attorney representing Pamela Perry, the woman who said she was the girlfriend of the bomber Anthony Warner, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said Tuesday. Her attorney, Raymond Throckmorton, said she had made “suicidal threats to him via telephone.”

When police arrived at Perry’s home, they found two unloaded pistols near Perry, who said they belonged to Warner. She told officers she did not want them in the home any longer and that Warner was “building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence,” according to a “matter of record” report from the MNPD.

The police also spoke to Throckmorton, who once represented Warner and was also present at Perry’s home. He told authorities Warner “frequently talks about the military and bomb-making. (Throckmorton) stated that he believes that the suspect knows what he is doing and is capable of making a bomb,” the report said.

Nashville Bomber’s Girlfriend Warned Police About Him in 2019

More than a year before the explosion that rocked Nashville last week, Anthony Warner’s girlfriend told police that he “was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence,” according to a police report filed in August 2019.

Yet the report indicates Nashville police never made contact with Warner. Despite having the report in their database, police did not share it with the public until Tuesday evening — four days after Warner drove his RV to downtown Nashville, Tenn., and detonated a bomb out of the vehicle, killing himself and injuring at least seven people.

Nurse Who Took COVID-19 Vaccine Tests Positive for COVID-19

It’s still 2020, and you cannot make this stuff up. A nurse who has already taken the COVID-19 vaccine has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus over a week after taking the vaccine that is allegedly supposed to prevent this “disease”.

According to a report by NCTV, Matthew W., a nurse at two different local hospitals, said in a Facebook post on December 18 that he had received the Pfizer vaccine. He went on to tell the ABC News affiliate that his arm was sore for a day but that he had suffered no other side-effects. Until now. Now, the side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine appears to be COVID-19.

“Six days later on Christmas Eve, he became sick after working a shift in the COVID-19 unit, the report added. He got the chills and later came down with muscle aches and fatigue.

“He went to a drive-up hospital testing site and tested positive for COVID-19 the day after Christmas, the report said.

“Christian Ramers, an infectious disease specialist with Family Health Centers of San Diego, told the ABC News affiliate that this scenario was not unexpected.” — NCTV

So did the World Health Organization doctor finally tell the truth?

WHO Chief Scientist: There Is NO EVIDENCE That The Vaccine Will Prevent Infection

The Propaganda is Non-Stop for the Beast System: No Travel Without the Vaccine

Mainstream media is ramping up the propaganda in order to get the public on board with an unnecessary and unwanted vaccine. The rollout of “vaccine passports” is here, and if you want to travel, you’ll need to show proof of vaccination.

The beast system is arriving with the invention of COVID-19 and far too many Americans still don’t get it. The dystopian future we’ve been warned about is here and it’s only going to get more tyrannical as the digital dollar is rolled out. The mainstream media is putting a nice spin on the adaptation of the beast system of control:

“Now that coronavirus vaccines are starting to roll out in the US and abroad, many people may be dreaming of the day when they can travel, shop, and go to the movies again. But in order to do those activities, you may eventually need something in addition to the vaccine: a vaccine passport application.

“Several companies and technologygroups have begun developing smartphone apps or systems for individuals to upload details of their Covid-19 tests and vaccinations, creating digital credentials that could be shown in order to enter concert venues, stadiums, movie theaters, offices, or even countries.” — CNN

The message is clear: if you want to buy or sell or move about freely, you’ll need proof of vaccination.

The Swamp Will Never be Able to Hide Again After Trump

According to Carter, the corruption in Washington is why Trump faced such retaliation during this time in office.

“It’s a beast and it feeds on itself and it knows how to slow roll. Which is why the Trump administration had such a difficult time. No matter how many times President Trump tried to do something or enact some kind of policy, if there were people opposed to it at the Pentagon, if there were people opposed to it at the state department, we might never know their names, but they just sat back and said you know what, we’re going to slow roll this policy so that it never comes to fruition,” Carter said.

Carter credited Trump for his dedication to the American people and exposing the truth.

“Thank God for President Trump because it exposed it in such a way that it will never be able to hide again.”

They Want You Muzzled Permanently: Wear Your Mask Even if You Get the Vaccine

The authorities and rulers are telling the public that they must continue to wear their face masks even after they get the “effective” COVID-19 vaccine. Mainstream media and the authoritarian ruling class is trying to convince the public to muzzle themselves permanently.

The country’s first coronavirus vaccinations are now being distributed to the sheep willing to take this thing. The FDA granted the Pfizer vaccine emergency authorization for use, and it’s expected that soon, possibly by this week, it will do the same for the Moderna vaccine. In trials, the Pfizer vaccine was 95% effective in preventing COVID-19, and the Moderna vaccine stands at 94%, both significantly more effective than many scientists anticipated.

If the vaccines are actually as effective as they say they are, why do we need masks? If masks worked, why do we need this rushed, unproven, and unwanted vaccine? No one is asking these questions in the mainstream media, so it’s time we start thinking for ourselves and undoing the years of brainwashing from listening to psychopathic politicians and their lapdog public relations department, the mainstream media.

Does anyone still believe this vaccine is for our own good? It’s getting ridiculous that people are still so blind to what’s going on here.

Thousands of Colorado Residents Without Heat After Attack on Gas Service

The FBI has joined a criminal investigation of what police said appears to be an “intentional attack” on gas service lines in Aspen, Colorado, that left thousands of residents and businesses without heat as temperatures in the skiing mecca plunged to near zero degrees.

Work crews are scrambling to restore gas service, and local authorities handed out electric space heaters to residents still without heat Tuesday, as a storm is forecast to bring up to 8 inches of snow in the Rocky Mountains region this week. Temperatures are forecast to fall to 2 degrees in Aspen on Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Aspen police said the apparently coordinated acts of vandalism occurred Saturday night at three separate Black Hills Energy gas line sites, one in Aspen and two elsewhere in Pitkin County.

At one of the targeted sites, police said they found the words “Earth first” scrawled, and investigators were looking into whether the self-described “radical environmental group” Earth First! was involved.

Unlawfully Corralling You Into Taking Vaccinations That May Have Serious Side Effects

By Bradlee Dean

It’s pretty crazy, to say the least, as to what is going on in America today (Psalm 9:17). The corruption stinks to high heaven, no doubt (Jeremiah 9:24)!

Here we have corrupt politicians working hand in glove with the mainstream media, who are pushing fear 24-7, over a narrative that they cannot prove, in an attempt to corral everyone into taking their vaccinations (Leviticus 17:11, 19:19).

On the other hand, they also want you to know that they, the politicians who are to serve the people but are instead working on the behalf of Big Pharma companies against the will of the people (Judases — Luke 22:48), have created unconstitutional policies to indemnify vaccine companies from consequence if you were to have serious side effects (Proverbs 17:15).

Look at their brazen and haughty arrogance, as if to suggest that we are to submit to their lawlessness and there is not a thing that we can do about it (Psalm 94:20).

Wayne Root: Greatest Horserace Fixer of All — Time Says Democrats Stole Election. Here’s How.

Richie watched and studied this 2020 presidential election. He calls it “the greatest scam and steal in world history.” He says anyone who denies this election was stolen is either a criminal who was in on the scam; or a bribed politician or bureaucrat who benefits from the scam; or a complete naïve moron.

What does the world’s greatest horserace fixer believe happened on Election Night? Richie says it’s clear that President Trump won in a landslide in key battleground states. Trump won so big in these key states that Democrats who tried to rig the election with millions of fake mail-in ballots had to move quickly to Plan B. Trump was actually winning a rigged election by a mile. Trump beat them so badly in these key states, Democrats needed reinforcements. So, they brought in the cavalry— vans, USPS trucks, even planes filled with fake ballots, in the wee hours of the morning, with no GOP witnesses watching.

That’s why they stopped the count on Election Night. The millions of fake Biden ballots weren’t enough. Democrat scammers had to call a “timeout” to quickly bring in millions of additional fake ballots to erase Trump’s massive lead.

Imam Openly Calls Jews, Christians, Atheists and Free-Speech Advocates ‘Filthy’ And ‘Evil’

This is nothing new in Canada. It is tolerated under the rubric of “diversity.” “Islamophobia” is the focus of the Trudeau government in Canada as it aims to shut down any discussion deemed to be offensive to Islam. But however hateful the imam Younus Kathrada is against Christians and Jews, it is shrugged off and forgotten, as is his justifying of the beheading of French teacher Samuel Paty. Kathrada “recently referred to the French teacher who was beheaded near Paris for showing cartoons of Muhammad as ‘a cursed, evil-spirited filthy excuse for a human being.’“

Hate laws exist in Canada, but the country has become a two-tier system: one law of tolerance for Islamic supremacists, and the other for everyone else. “The Victoria police department could not be reached for comment about whether Kathrada has been under investigation.”

Toronto’s Top Doctor Says People Still Gathering Illegally in Homes

Private indoor gatherings have officially been banned across Ontario since Boxing Day as part of the new blanket lockdown, but that hasn’t stopped people from gathering with friends and family over the holidays, according to Toronto’s Chief Medical Officer of Health.

Dr. Eileen de Villa said at a briefing on Wednesday that she is concerned with the extent to which people are “mixing,” and noted that according to an online survey recently conducted by the City, 21 per cent of residents reported gathering in a private home and with people who weren’t members of their household between Dec. 14 and 20.

2020: The Year Radical Islamic Terror Resurged, Despite Pandemic and Lockdowns

Despite the lockdowns in many countries due to the Wuhan virus pandemic, Europe saw at least seven terrorist attacks in 2020, with radical Islamic terror seeing a particular resurgence in France.

The first Islamist terror attack took place prior to the coronavirus pandemic in January, when a Salafist named Nathan C. stabbed three people in the French commune of Vileljuif, killing one and injuring the two others.

Czechia Formally Approves Agreement Between EU and UK

On Tuesday, Czechia sent its formal consent with the agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom, which regulates, among other things, future trade relations after Britain leaves the Union.

Czech Foreign Minister Tomas Petricek added that all EU member states had already agreed to the convention. The British Parliament will approve the agreement on Wednesday.

EU member states had to formally approve the agreement, which was unanimously endorsed by EU countries’ representatives on Monday. Nothing is thus preventing the document from coming into force. Even without the consent of the European Parliament, which will approve the agreement later, the convention can be valid from Jan. 1.

Nanny State: UK Uses COVID to Usher in New Curbs to Online Ads of High Calorie Foods

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, governments around the world took to releasing infographics, while officials started urging people to wash their hands while explaining how one does that, like you might to a 2-year-old. At that point, it looked like the notion of a “nanny state” had crossed from the realm of the figurative into the literal, with the two then combining into “the new normal.”

The trend has not been slowing down in the meanwhile, and provides just the right social and political atmosphere to slip through all kinds of other “nanny state” regulations, as reports from the UK suggest. There, the government is preparing to adopt new rules around restricting the types of food citizens are allowed to be aware of through advertising.

Spain to Keep ‘Black Book of Shame’ Listing Citizens Who Refuse COVID Vaccine

Spain is to set up a registry of people who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine and share it with other European Union nations, the health minister has declared.

According to Illa, the only way to defeat the virus is to have every single person in Spain vaccinated.

Swedish Police Recruiting More Women, Immigrants

Despite previous efforts, the Swedish police have failed to attract enough women to police training and is now betting on new, more gender-equal recruitment campaigns to fix this.

In the autumn, women made up about 30 percent of the applicants for police training. This is far too few, according to Chief of Police Max Lutteman.

“We have this as a priority area. When we now work with campaigns to admit more people to police training, we have targeted women in particular”, Lutteman told Swedish Radio.

Urgent Alert: Doctor Heinrich Fiechtner Warns: ‘It’s a Killer Vaccination’ (Must Watch)

Member of the state parliament in Baden-Württemberg, Dr. Heinrich Fiechtner slammed the German government and media for their endless propaganda, misinformation and fake news concerning the Chinese coronavirus. In an impassioned speech on the floor of the German Parliament, Dr. Fiechtner also warned the public of the dire consequences of the new “killer vaccination” and urged the public to resist the illegal government impositions.

Dr. Fiechtner, a licensed and trained hematologist and oncologist, explained that minutes after observing a national television report describing the coronavirus-strained capacity of hospital intensive care units (ICUs), he phoned his former hospital colleagues and learned that the hospital had not a single coronavirus patient in its ICU. Outraged by these irresponsible and politically motivated lies and exaggerations, Fiechnter lashed out at the fear mongering politicians and their media allies…

With the German government illegally exercising power, Dr. Fiechtner implored the people to exercise their rights and resist these illegal government impositions. “The civic duty for the citizens to obey the rule of law is now broken.”

Watch the following powerful speech by Dr. Heinrich Fiechtner exclusively translated by RAIR Foundation USA:

Madame President, ladies and gentlemen: yesterday evening at 10pm, prime-time TV, on the Anne Will talk show, there was an illustrious group discussion about the coming lockdown, which included Professor Dr. Uwe Janssens, President of the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine.

He made an emotional and lengthy plea about the importance these grave and drastic measures being implemented upon the German population. He explained how the ICU stations were being overwhelmed and overflowing with patients, causing a situation that was barely manageable.

Around 10:13pm I called his hospital’s ICU and requested to speak with the chief physician on duty, with whom I spoke. I asked him, “How many COVID patients have been admitted to your Intensive Care Unit?” This ICU has 19 beds, and as of yesterday there WASN’T A SINGLE PATIENT!

With such half-truths and complete lies, the wool is being pulled over our eyes.

These propagandists that are invited on these shows for the sole purpose of creating panic and fear among the population.

And then there’s the whole “infection” narrative and the test. This test isn’t even capable of making the distinction between an active virus and an inactive virus.

Just as the Senate in Berlin had to admit.

The Horror: No Justice for Coptic Grandmother Assaulted in Egypt

A Coptic grandmother in the village of Al-Karm, in the Minya governorate, in Upper Egypt, was stripped naked, and her house burned down, by three Muslims, in 2016. It was certainly an atrocity. And the perpetrators are known; they denied nothing; they were proud of what they had done, teaching the odious Copts a lesson. She and her lawyers have been fighting for justice ever since. But for Copts in Egypt, there is no justice. The Egyptian state, in the form of its judiciary, ultimately acquitted the three Muslims, even though their guilt was never in doubt. The preliminary Jihad Watch report on this appalling case is here, and here is a news report on the fallout from the case: “Coptic Christians in Egypt say they can’t get justice,” Media Line, December 24, 2020.

For the Second Time in a Week, Muslims Set Christmas Tree Ablaze in Sakhnin

It seems that Christmas trees have become a cause of provocation to some Muslims, leading them to set them on fire. They just set ablaze the Christmas tree that was reerected in front of the Greek Catholic Church after the first one was burned several days ago. What was the reason?

Yousif Elias, a young member of the Greek Catholic church, expressed his anger at the burning of the two Christmas trees earlier this week. When Muslims came to fix the two Christmas trees, he sent out a voice message in which he used obscene language against the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. Later, he assured them that this was a silly joke, rather than a deliberate attempt to insult any religion.

However, it appears that the reaction to the comment against Muhammad this time was conveyed by masked perpetrators who burnt the tree and wrote a sentence in red on the wall of the church: “Except for the Messenger of God,” after they held a guard at gunpoint.

Mob Attacks Pakistani Church on Christmas

Pakistan (MNN) — On Christmas Morning in Lahore, Pakistan, a group of 50-60 Muslim men attacked a Christian church during their Christmas service. They aimed to kidnap and assault the women in attendance.

The security guards and other men at the church fought back with bare hands against the staff-wielding intruders, giving the women time to escape. Many Christian men suffered blunt trauma injuries and fractures in the fight.

Things got worse when the police arrived. Authorities helped the defeated Muslims escape, and blamed Christians for fighting back.

Apple Employee Says He Was Punished by Apple for Approving App Critical of the Chinese Government

The story of the relationship between US tech behemoth Apple and China’s regime seems to be gaining in nuance and detail with every passing day. In order to protect its presence in the huge market and its supply chain, Apple has been willing to remove apps from its Store at Beijing’s behest, and this has been well documented in the past.

But it has now emerged that Apple is also allegedly willing to go so far as to punish its employees who might have first approved such apps — namely, those critical of the Chinese regime.

One former employee, Trieu Pham, is suing the giant for wrongful termination and discrimination, alleging that Apple went out of its way to stay in the good graces of Beijing when it punished him.

China Using COVID to Overtake America’s Economy

China’s economy is worse than it appears, and its vaccines, needed for a full recovery, are still in development, far behind America’s. In the meantime, Beijing’s response to the coronavirus, which includes the smearing of America, is resulting in China losing friends worldwide.

Government stimulus is powering much of the current growth as are net exports. Yet the current “flood of defaults” in China points to widespread weakness. Beijing’s spending spree, therefore, is not sustainable, even with the help of foreign investment.

Ultimately, the economy will recover only when China has an effective and safe vaccine. Although the Chinese have had months of head start, they are far behind America.

China is fast losing support in capitals around the world. It is not hard to figure out why. Chinese ruler Xi Jinping deliberately spread the virus beyond China’s borders — by lying about the transmissibility of the disease and, while locking down Wuhan, forcing countries to take arrivals from China — and others are now starting to understand the maliciousness of the Communist Party. Moreover, they are learning about its venality. For instance, China this spring sold Italy medical protective gear that Italians had donated to Beijing a few weeks earlier.

Senate Report Says World Vision Should Have Known it Was Partnering With Group That Funded Terrorists

A new U.S. Senate Finance Committee report has found that the evangelical Christian humanitarian organization World Vision should have known that it was working with an Islamic group in Sudan dedicated to funding terrorism.

“Based on the evidence presented, we conclude that World Vision had access to the appropriate public information and should have known how, but failed to, properly vet ISRA (Islamic Relief Agency) as a subgrantee, resulting in the transfer of U.S. taxpayer dollars to an organization with an extensive history of supporting terrorist organizations and terrorists, including Osama Bin Laden,” the report said.

Calling World Vision’s vetting process “borderline negligent,” investigators found that it would only have required the organization to use free online search engines to find ISRA’s connection to terror activities.

World Vision has been connected to the terror-funding group as far back as 2011. ISRA was sanctioned by the United States in 2004 for both funneling money to the forerunner of al-Qaeda and assisting bin Laden in his efforts to relocate while being pursued by the U.S.

Deportees From Sweden Refuse COVID Testing to Avoid Expulsion

Migrants with deportation orders have adopted the practice of refusing Covid-19 tests in the Swedish Migration Board’s detention centres, utilising a loophole in Swedish laws, the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet reported.

The underlying reason is that many countries require a negative Covid test from the deportees. They include Afghanistan, one of the most frequent destinations for deportation from Sweden.

In Sweden, there are no compulsory tests. The vast majority of Afghans who have been sentenced to deportation for crimes committed or due to their application turned down now therefore refuse the Covid-19 tests to postpone their deportation, Svenska Dagbladet reported.
