Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/13/2021

The United States Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump of impeachment charges today. Fifty-seven senators voted to convict, while forty-three voted to acquit, but conviction would have required a two-thirds majority, or sixty-seven votes.

In other news, UK police cracked down on illegal parties in Yorkshire, London, and the West Midlands. Meanwhile, hundreds of people demonstrated against the COVID lockdown in downtown Melbourne.

Tens of Millions More Americans Are Becoming ‘Slaves to the System’ As Economic Armageddon Unfolds for Small Businesses and the American Worker and an Eviction Tsunami Looms

According to a study that was recently released by the Fed, 9 million small businesses in the U.S. say that they “won’t survive” in 2021 without more government assistance…

Three in ten small businesses — or 9 million out of the estimated 30 million in the United States — fear they won’t survive in the coming year without additional government assistance, according to a survey recently published by the Federal Reserve.

The Small Business Credit Survey, which was conducted last September and October and released last week, showcased the incredible burden the coronavirus pandemic has placed on America’s small businesses, as 88% of the businesses surveyed reported that sales had not yet returned to pre-pandemic levels.

Can you imagine what our country would look like if almost a third of all small businesses permanently disappeared?

These are very dark times for the U.S. economy, and the outlook for the future is exceedingly bleak…

And while we’ll surely be called ‘conspiracy theorists’ for suggesting that a total collapse of America is what many Democrat/RINO/globalist politicians want and have long planned and worked towards, the evidence is everywhere, seen in the United Nations Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 and now in ‘the Great Reset’ being called for by the World Economic Forum.

“Free Speech Short Video App” Clapper Bans QAnon and Vaccine-Skeptic Content

Clapper, a relatively new TikTok-like platform, has banned all QAnon-related and vaccine-skeptic content. The social media app had slowly started to become popular with those who were banned from more mainstream platforms.

On Thursday, Clapper CEO, Edison Chen, speaking to The Verge blog, said that QAnon conspiracies and vaccine-skeptic content would no longer be tolerated. The move came after The Verge published a report, alleging misinformation and conspiracy theories spreading on the platform.

Cuomo Aide Melissa Derosa Admits They Hid Nursing Home Data So Feds Wouldn’t Find Out

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing home death toll from COVID-19 — telling them “we froze” out of fear that the true numbers would “be used against us” by federal prosecutors, The Post has learned.

The stunning admission of a coverup was made by secretary to the governor Melissa DeRosa during a video conference call with state Democratic leaders in which she said the Cuomo administration had rebuffed a legislative request for the tally in August because “right around the same time, [then-President Donald Trump] turns this into a giant political football,” according to an audio recording of the two-hour-plus meeting.

Exclusive: Three 300,000 Biden Vote Dumps Late on Election Night in Virginia Cannot be Adequately Explained or Tied to Final Results

There’s something not right with the 2020 Election results in Virginia. There were three massive vote dumps of more than 300,000 Biden votes late on Election night that are being ignored by politicians and the media.

We reported previously on the 2020 election results for President in Virginia. Hundreds of thousands of votes for Joe Biden were reported in massive vote dumps in the middle of the night and yesterday we discovered this all took place in Fairfax County. A response from Delegate Chris Head to a constituent attempted to answer questions related to these ballot dumps but failed miserably.

Indiana: Valparaiso University Drops Crusaders Nickname and Mascot

The Crusades took place long before, centuries before, the Ku Klux Klan existed. Changing this nickname and mascot is another sign of the acceptance of the idea that Westerners should be ashamed of the Crusades. The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS proves otherwise. It demonstrates from primary sources that the Crusades were not a gratuitous imperialistic venture, but a late and small-scale defensive reaction to 450 years of imperialist jihad aggression that had conquered and Islamized what had been half of the Christian world, and threatened the life of the Christian empire, the Byzantine empire.

The West continues its cultural self-abnegation in the face of the chimera of “Islamophobia,” a propaganda neologism designed to make people ashamed of defending themselves and their homeland against a newly aggressive and emboldened Islamic jihad.

Martin Luther King’s Niece Protested by Students, Accused of Racism and Supporting Trump After Virtual Event

Pro-abortion students at Georgetown University, a Catholic university, are demanding the public condemnation of pro-life speakers who participated in a virtual event at the school in late January. The students singled out Martin Luther King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, and accused her of “bigotry and hatred.”

In late January, Georgetown University held the annual Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life, which is considered “the largest student-run, pro-life conference in the nation.” The conference has been held at the university for more than 20 years and was this year held virtually.

‘Rage Fueled’ NYC Man Busted for Making Threats Against Reporters, Trump Supporters

A “rage fueled” Manhattan man made death threats against a slew of cable news journalists and politicians in a series of social media rants that included him ripping former President Donald Trump’s supporters as cop-killers, federal prosecutors and the NYPD said Friday.

Rickey Johnson, 47 — who the feds say also used the name Nigel Dawn Defarren as he posted from an account linked to a Manhattan apartment address — was arrested Thursday night on charges of making threatening interstate communications and of threatening a US official.

Officials said Johnson’s victims included a state governor, a US senator, a member of the House of Representatives, a former speaker of the House and four cable news broadcasters.

The COVID Vaccines — Part 1

by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABHIM

In December 2020, the first vaccines for coronavirus disease were granted an EUA — Emergency Use Authorization — by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Vaccine administration began immediately. Were you first in line? I hope you were not, and I hope no one you care about ran to get this injection either.

This is not “just another vaccine” and this is not “just like getting a flu shot.” The ingredients are experimental and the mRNA is coded to produce a protein that CAN modify your genes.

According to the Coronavirus Vaccine Tracker, as of Dec. 26, 2020, 83 vaccines are in Phase 1, 2 or 3 human and animal clinical trials, with 18 approaching the final stages of testing. Never before have so many companies tested so many different vaccines at the same time, against a virus that has not been isolated. Of those in the trials, five vaccines are now early use, with three vaccines approved for clinical use Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca. Here’s what we have been told, so far:…

The Iowa State Senate Prays to Allah — Twice

The Iowa State Senate opens each daily session with a prayer. On February 8, State Senator Sarah Trone Garriott (D) “shared a prayer” written by one of her constituents who was a Muslim. The prayer was to Allah and included references to a number of Allah’s 99 Names. It is interesting that the Iowa State Senate prayed to the Muslim god Allah, even though there are no Muslim members of that Senate. And it is even more interesting that these state senators bowed their heads in prayer to a god who curses Christians and Jews and condemns them to Hell.

Troop Deployments in Washington Are a Disaster Waiting to Happen

Perpetuating the troop deployment is also being justified by melodramatic revisionism. In congressional testimony last week, Capitol Police acting chief Yogananda Pittman described the January 6 clash at the Capitol as “a terrorist attack by tens of thousands of insurrectionists.” Apparently, anyone who tromped from the scene of Trump’s ludicrous “I won by a landslide” spiel to the Capitol was a terrorist, or at least an “insurrectionist” (which is simply “terrorist” spelled with more letters). Is “walking on the Mall with bad thoughts” sufficient to get classified as a terrorist in the Biden era?

Placing thousands of troops on the streets of the nation’s capital could be a ticking time bomb. The longer the National Guard is deployed in Washington, the greater the peril of a Kent State-caliber catastrophe. The Ohio National Guard’s volley of fire in 1970 that killed four students and wounded nine others was a defining moment for the Vietnam era.

Vaccine-Induced Spike Antibodies: Havoc on the Lungs

by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABHIM

When the coronavirus vaccine is injected, the mRNA contains “instructions” for building the spike protein that has been identified on the surface of the SARS-CoV2 virus. The cell’s reverse transcriptase enzymes are called into action, leading to the mass production of the spike (S) protein, the protein thought to play a vital role in its infectivity.

However, is this a good thing?

The 2019 study by Liu, Li et al, “Anti-spike IgG antibody causes severe acute lung injury by skewing macrophage responses during acute SARS-CoV infection” is worthy of your time to read and study.

The investigation was undertaken to study the effect vaccine-induced, spike-protein antibodies have on preventing SARS-CoV infections and to examine the possible effect the spike-protein antibodies have on the immune system.

What the researchers discovered was startling.

Six women and four men were charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration, unlawful assembly and assault, an NYPD spokeswoman said. The 10 were given desk appearance tickets and released, the spokeswoman said.

Where Do We Go From Here? Part 3

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” —C.S. Lewis

In Parts 1 and 2 (and more recently) we saw:

Evidence of the biggest election fraud in U.S. history-possibly ever. Contrary to Corporate Media, Big Tech, and Swamp servants such as former Atty. Gen. William Barr, we have Absolute Proof. We have the forensic digital footprints of votes stolen from Trump, all the way down to the IP addresses of tecomputers used (roughly two thirds were in China!). How it won’t matter, for as I’ve said repeatedly, we now inhabit a culture where truth does not matter, only approved narratives. Thus we have an exact inversion where lies pass for truth and the truth is called the Big Lie. Evidence of the steal is being ruthlessly suppressed — not just by Big Tech platforms but to the point where (e.g., in Michigan-1:29 — 1:38 in the above) attorneys bringing lawsuits challenging election results are threatened with disbarment and even state legislators are threatened with prosecution. In other words, the U.S. is now a banana republic. It is a first world country in appearance only. Both the urgency and the benefits of self-control, despite all of the above about which we can do nothing. I would add that it is grade-A stupid to threaten political figures, especially someone like AOC who is in the limelight. Ignore the blowhards. Getting our own house in order should keep us sufficiently busy that we won’t have time. The abundant theological and philosophical roots for this sort of stance — some from thinkers whose situations were vastly worse than ours (Seneca, the Stoic philosopher of 1st century Rome, is an example; in a future installment I will discuss the late Vice-Admiral James Stockdale). Such ideas offer anchor-point soutside mainstream America as it tilts ever further left and authoritarianism increases riding waves of anti white racism (e.g., the “white fragility” movement).

There is no longer any wisdom in trying to change the system from within. But a dilemma comes up at once (a reader beat me to it): the choice between standing and fighting and creative withdrawal (I will call it).

‘Mega Rally’ In Stuart Park

UPDATE: 12:55 p.m.

While posters advertised a “mega rally” in Kelowna’s Stuart Park Saturday, and the RCMP and Mayor Colin Basran condemned the planned event, Saturday’s protest wasn’t all that much larger than those held in past weeks.

A few hundred people gathered across Water Street from Kelowna City Hall, under Stuart Park’s Bear Statue, as a singer sang protest songs and speakers addressed the crowd.

A small number of counter protesters also gathered outside City Hall.

Despite Kelowna RCMP Supt. Kara Triance condemning the event earlier this week, Castanet has not seen much in the way of a police presence so far. The event has been deemed illegal under the COVID-19 public health order that bans events and gatherings, but it’s been held every Saturday for many months.

Organizer David Lindsay has received three $2,300 fines for holding the rally in the past.

Sting Nails Illegal Burnaby Ride-Hailing Drivers for $15,000

Ride-hailing is legal in Burnaby and the rest of Metro Vancouver.

But only if you follow the rules and have a proper licence. There are many drivers around the region doing this illegally either on their own or through underground ride-hailing companies.

Burnaby RCMP traffic enforcement officers nailed a group of these drivers earlier this week through a sting operation in partnership with the Passenger Transportation Board.

In all, 10 drivers were caught and 30 tickets totalling more than $15,000 were handed out.

It’s been one year since the province started granting licences to ride-hailing companies in B.C., starting with Uber and Lyft, despite strong opposition and a legal challenge from the taxi industry.

Since then, however, there’s been a world-wide pandemic and demand for ride-hailing declined drastically just as they were lifting off.

France: Le Pen Goes on Trial on Charges She Broke Hate Speech Laws by Tweeting Pictures of Islamic State Atrocities

We reported on Wednesday that “Le Pen has seen a big change from two years ago, when she was ordered to undergo psychiatric tests by a court simply for posting photos to impress the truth about the dangers of the Islamic State upon the French public.” We spoke too soon. Now she is on trial for that very “offense.” What are the chances that France will defeat the jihad when it persecutes those who call attention to the atrocities done in its name? About nil.

Meanwhile, what does this “far-right” designation mean? For the establishment media and the political elites, it means, “We don’t like this person, and we don’t want you to like her, either.” That’s about it.

Italy: Draghi: Let’s Put Rows Aside, Work Together Says Salvini

COVID-19 is like a war says League leader

(ANSA) — ROME, FEB 12 — League leader Matteo Salvini said Friday that he was ready to put aside differences with his political opponents to make a government led by Premier-designate Mario Draghi a success in a time of national emergency.

“We will remember COVID for decades. It is one of those periods, like a war, that leave a mark,” Salvini told Mediaset television.

“You have to forget ideologies and rows. It is the time to work together to reconstruct the country, putting aside likes and dislikes, (whether we are) nationalists or pro-Europe”.

The League leader said he was in synch with Draghi “on concrete issue and the real urgent needs of Italy”.

On the other hand, Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the Brothers of Italy (FdI) party, said Friday that the right-wing group would assess the cabinet Draghi chooses and the government’s programme before deciding what to do in confidence votes in parliament.

Unlike the League and the other member of the centre-right alliance, ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia (FI) party, FdI has said it will not back Draghi’s executive.

It remains to be seen whether FdI abstains in the confidence votes or votes against.

The M5S on Wednesday delayed an online vote of its members on whether to back an eventual executive led by Premier-designate Mario Draghi, after Grillo said they should wait to hear what the former head of the European Central Bank says in public after government-formation consultations., “France, Spain, Switzerland, Costa Rica and other countries have a Super-Minister for the ecological transformation,” comedian-cum-politician Grillo said via Twitter.

UK: Churchill College Hosts Anti-Churchill Talk: ‘Embodiment of White Supremacy’, British Empire ‘Far Worse’ Than Nazis

Churchill College at the University of Cambridge hosted an online talk in which academics claimed that Winston Churchill was a white supremacist and the British Empire “far worse” than Nazi Germany.

In the Zoom “discussion” titled, arguably inaccurately, The Racial Consequences of Mr Churchill — as a knight of the realm the wartime leader’s proper title is ‘Sir’ rather than ‘Mister’ — academics Priyamvada Gopal, Onyeka Nubia, Kehinde Andrews, and Madhusree Mukerjee all appeared to share a profoundly negative view of the British leader.

UK: Watch: Khan Statues Adviser Screamed at Queen in Church, Threatened to ‘Punch Out’ Security

A member of London mayor Sadiq Khan’s new commission reviewing statues, street names, and other memorials once interrupted a church service to scream at the Queen and threatened to “punch out” security.

British-Nigerian activist Toyin Agbetu was already working on the BLM-inspired Review, Rename, Reclaim naming review for the municipal authorities in the London borough of Hackney — represented by Labour’s Diane Abbott in Parliament — but was thrust into the spotlight by his appointment to Mayor Khan’s so-called Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm, which will be conducting a similar audit of statues and memorials for the entire capital.

Who Was Buried at Sutton Hoo?

To learn more about the secrets of Sutton Hoo and who might be buried there, Live Science talked with several researchers. Many thought that King Raedwald, who ruled a kingdom in East Anglia and died around A.D. 627, is the best candidate. But even that’s just a best guess. Historical records dating to the period are limited, and the remains of those buried at the site are completely decayed, leaving no physical remains to analyze, the researchers said.

Caroline Glick: The ICC’s European Puppet Masters

Last Saturday, the justices of the International Criminal Court (ICC) took a major swipe at the Jewish state. They ruled that the ICC prosecutor is permitted to open a formal investigation of Israel for fake war crimes. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasted the decision referring to it as “pure anti-Semitism.”

Netanyahu added, “This court was founded to prevent atrocities like the Nazi Holocaust against the Jewish people, and now it is attacking the Jewish people’s only state.”

Netanyahu is absolutely right. The court’s decision is bigoted at its core. To reach its decision, the judges had to ignore the 1998 Rome Statute on which it is founded. The Rome Statute makes clear that only states or the UN Security Council can petition the court for redress. And having ignored its own legal writ, the judges proceeded to take a knife to the very concept of international law. They applied a standard of behavior to Israel that is applied to no other state in order to single out Israel for legal proceedings that have no basis either in the court’s specific mandate or in the law of nations.

The fact that Hamas — a terrorist group formally committed to the genocide of the Jewish people — published a statement applauding the court’s ruling shows just how prejudicial the court’s decision was. It is worth noting that every missile attack and suicide bombing Hamas terrorists carry out against Israel is a separate war crime under actual international law.

Hamas terrorists understand the racket the ICC is running against the Jews. The phony war crimes investigation is a practical application of UN General Assembly Resolution 3379 from 1975 which defined Zionism — the Jewish national liberation movement — as a form of racism and so rejected Israel’s moral right to exist.

Although Resolution 3379 was rescinded in 1991, it is alive today in every UN agency where Israel is condemned on a daily basis for absolutely nothing. It is alive in the European Union which subjects Israel to systematic discrimination. And it is alive on the international left, whose members throughout the Western world vilify Israel at every turn — again, for absolutely nothing.

All of these forces understand that the point of putting IDF soldiers, commanders and Israeli civilians in the ICC dock for war crimes that never happened is to advance their goal of rescinding international recognition of the Jewish state’s right to exist as a normal, sovereign state. They also know full well that simply by holding show trials of Israeli Jews, they will legitimize and expand support for Hamas’ goal — Israel’s physical destruction…

Hagia Sophia Imam Urges Elimination of Principle of Secularism in New Constitution

The chief imam of the Hagia Sophia, which was converted into a mosque from a museum last summer, has said the principle of secularism should be eliminated in a new constitution to be drafted by Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) government and that Islam should be set as the religion of Turkey.

The controversial remarks were made by Professor Mehmet Boynukalin on Twitter on Wednesday.

Jen Psaki Can’t Answer Whether Israel and Saudi Arabia Are ‘Important Allies’

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki gave a vague, rambling answer Friday when asked at a briefing to reporters whether the Biden administration considers Saudi Arabia and Israel to be “important allies.”

“Can you please just give us a broad sense of what the administration is trying to achieve in the Middle East?” a reporter asked — in follow-up to an earlier question asking why President Biden has yet to call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“For example,” the reporter asked, “does the administration still consider the Saudis and the Israelis important allies?

New Anal Swab Tests Deployed to Fight COVID

Story at-a-glance:

  • An anal swab test for COVID-19 was released in Beijing and is said to be a more accurate method for detecting the SARS-CoV-2 virus
  • While the tests are supposed to be only for “high-risk cases,” they’ve reportedly been given to unsuspecting individuals, including travelers arriving in Beijing, those in quarantine centers and even 1,000 children and teachers who were exposed to the virus
  • Some have suggested rectal swabs could be used to test patients with COVID-19 symptoms or known COVID-19 exposure who test negative via throat or sputum tests
  • When asked by a journalist whether anal swabs could be implemented for EU-wide COVID testing, a spokesperson said they would “follow the science”

Nigeria: Christian Schoolgirl Entering Third Year in Captivity

2/9/2021 Nigeria (International Christian Concern)— On February 19, 2018 at 5:30 pm, Boko Haram kidnapped 110 schoolgirls from the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College located in northeast Nigeria. After a month of negotiations between the Nigerian government and Boko Haram, 104 out of the 105 girls left alive were released from captivity and returned home to their families.To this day, only one girl remains.

The jihadist militant terrorist group Book Haram kept 14 year old Leah Sharibu due to her refusal to deny Christ and convert to Islam. For the past three years she has been held hostage and deemed a “slave for life” by her captors. The last time Leah was heard from was through a video recording released in August of 2018.

“I am calling on the government and people of goodwill to intervene to get me out of my current situation,” she said. “I also plead to the members of the public to help my mother, my father, my younger brother and relatives. Kindly help me out of my predicament. I am begging you to treat me with compassion, I am calling on the government, particularly, the president to pity me and get me out of this serious situation. Thank you.”

France: Muslim Migrant With Previous Convictions for Knife Attacks Stabs Random Man to Death on the Street

We have seen random stabbings by jihadis in the West many times. The Islamic State issued this call in September 2014:

So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be….If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him….

Might that have anything to do with this incident? Possibly, but given the determination of the Western political and media elites to downplay and whitewash the jihad threat, we may never know for sure.

When Europe Ignored the Sex Crimes of Immigrants, All Women Suffered

By Ayaan Hirsi Ali

When I lived in the Netherlands from 1992 to 2006, I saw an influx of immigrants into society. In 2000, individuals with a “non-Western migration background” made up 8.9 percent of the Dutch population — about 1 out of every 12 people. Today, about 1 out of every 8 people in the Netherlands now has a non-Western migration background.

Meanwhile, women of a foreign/migrant background make up 52 percent of residents in Dutch women’s shelters.

Inside Planned Parenthood’s Gender Factory

An Ex-Reproductive Health Assistant Speaks Out

A month ago, I was sent a Tweetstorm written by a woman who had worked as a “reproductive health assistant” at Planned Parenthood for about 18 months prior to March 2020. If you assumed that the employee had abortion on her mind, then your knowledge of Planned Parenthood is outdated. Planned Parenthood is now one of the largest providers in the United States of cross-sex hormones like testosterone to females seeking medical gender transition…

According to the employee, based on her recollection, 1-2 new biologically female teen patients seeking testosterone would arrive per day. A few reasonable assumptions and some arithmetic reveal that a shocking percentage of the town’s teen girls came through the clinic over just a few years.

There were no doctors at the clinic where she worked. Nurse practitioners were the professionals with the highest medical training, she said. The clinic employed a gender counselor who had “no actual professional credentials or formal training other than being MtF” (that is, a male-to-female transgender person). Adolescents would come and speak to this gender counselor and Planned Parenthood would then forward the counselor’s “notes to an actual licensed mental health professional somewhere off-site, and rubber stamp approve the patients to begin their transition. This is basically how they circumvented the requirement to speak to an actual counselor,” according to the employee’s Twitter post.

Whether patients received specific treatments-a course of testosterone, say-was decided by the “clinic manager,” with “no prior medical experience” whose prior job was “managing a Wendy’s,” the employee wrote.

The Fraud of Climate Change and the Drive for Control

Man-made Climate Change is being used as the catalyst for tall tales of melting ice caps, drowning polar bears, and flooded islands. It’s even being blamed for a rise in wars and poverty. In the name of Climate Change there is a drive to destroy Free markets and the very concepts of limited Government, private property, and individual liberty.

We’re told that we must all sacrifice and give up our “selfish” lifestyle as we are required to “live on less” — to save the planet. And above all, we are warned not to question any of this because the science is settled. The debate is over. Stop talking about it — We must act NOW!

But what are the facts? What is the basis of the Climate Change charges, and why is there no room for a difference of opinion, no matter what new facts may be discovered? In short, what is the true “end game?”

The New Normal Documentary

Story at-a-glance:

  • “The New Normal” documentary by Happen.network investigates speculation that the COVID-19 pandemic was planned — or at least is being exploited — by a group of tech elite who are dictating policy to governments globally in order to push a totalitarian agenda
  • At the root of the agenda is a significant economic and power shift that only a minority of people are aware of, being driven by the Fourth Industrial Revolution
  • The World Economic Forum stated that 50% of all employees will require reskilling by 2025, “as the ‘double-disruption’ of the economic impacts of the pandemic and increasing automation transforming jobs takes hold”
  • AI is predicted to merge with humans and take over jobs and cities; AI will be so much better at driving than people, the documentary explains, that eventually most people will be afraid to drive; soon after that, humans won’t be allowed to drive at all
  • Data colonialism and digital dictatorship are very real possibilities in the “new normal,” as is the division of the world into wealthy elites and a “useless class,” which ends up as an exploited data colony

    America’s Cup preliminary in Auckland ” Prada Cup organisers have decided to postpone Wednesday’s racing.”

    Question is what will ramped up testing show?
    Question also of the travel down to Taranaki, New Plymouth city. about a 400 kilometre trip approx 250 miles.
    What is the genome? linkage to other cases? variant? some one in monitored quarantine? or after some one has been in quarantine?

  2. There are a couple good sources for real climate news. Tony Heller is hated because he shows past temperature data and how it was changed to show global warming. He also reads old newspapers reporting how hot it was in the past or the massive forest fires in the past e.g. the US 1930s, much worse than now.
