Millions of American Jobs Under Biden Regime Won’t Come Back…democrat Officials Warn of Consequences as Biden Prepares to Give Unearned Amnesty to Millions

Conservative Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) mocked the Democrats and their plan to offer unearned amnesty to millions of non-citizens living in the United States, “Millions of working-class jobs lost. Nothing that a giant amnesty can’t solve!” he tweeted.

UK Unemployment Rises for 6th Consecutive Month

LONDON (AP) — The U.K. unemployment rate rose for a six straight month in December as renewed coronavirus restrictions shut down most businesses across the country.

The Office for National Statistics said Tuesday that unemployment rose to 5.1% in December, up 0.1% from the previous month and 1.3% from a year earlier. The number of people on company payrolls has dropped by 726,000 since the pandemic began last February, with 58.5% of the decline coming among people under 25.

At What Point Do We Realize Bill Gates is Dangerously Insane?

“What this comes down to, though, is that Bill Gates has been so rich for so long that he’s spent the bulk of his adult life without anyone telling him he’s wrong”

This isn’t an overreaction to Gates’ latest foray into the news cycle. It’s an observation based on a long pattern of statements and behavior by the founder of Microsoft and one of the richest men who has ever lived which, were any of us normal people guilty of them, would result in our being institutionalized.

Bill Gates is crazy. And he’s dangerous, because he’s willing to put untold sums of money toward making the insane things he believes a reality — and all of those insane things hurt people.

The most recent idiocy? Impossible Burgers for all the white people.

Banned Documentary — Why Bill Gates Switched From Microsoft to Vaccines

Why Bill Gates switched from Microsoft to Vaccines is a hard hitting documentary on the untold history of the tech mogul.

The documentary starts with a long suppressed 90s case of Bill Gates bribing to sabotage his rivals and to impose his policy on sovereign nations.

The 90s case is a pivotal moment from where Gates switches to philanthropy with a damage-control makeover with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The documentary also shows Bill Gates agenda in India and how his Polio vaccines resulted in thousands of deaths of tribal girls in India.

It also details various global projects undertaken by Bill Gates which will have a bigger impact in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis.

One of the project is Trust Stamp — a vaccination based digital identity program funded by Bill Gates and implemented by Mastercard and GAVI.

Biden Falsely Labels Police, Military Veterans as ‘White Supremacists’

Joe Biden has accused military veterans and retired police officers of so-called “white supremacy” in a grievous insult to servicemen and women.

“The impact of former military, former police officers, on the growth of white supremacy in some of these groups…it is a bane on our existence…these guys and woman are, in fact, demented,” he stated during a CNN Town Hall.

Biden’s remarks sparked fury among veteran and police groups who said they didn’t serve and protect this country to become subject to a political smear campaign.

In that same interview, Biden falsely labeled patriotic groups as “domestic terrorists” while ignoring the threats posed by groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Biden Administration Wants Standardized Testing Restarted, Many Virtual Learning States to Demand Waiver

As teachers unions around the country object to various state and local government plans to “return to school,” the Biden administration has just issued an order that is unlikely to make them happy.

The U.S. Department of Education issued new guidance to states on Monday that they must restart standardized testing of their students this spring. Due to the coronavirus pandemic closures last spring, the country suspended standardized tests, something that several school districts anticipated would be the case again in 2021 given that so many are yet to return to in-person learning.

Black Teen Travels to White Suburb to Commit Mass Shooting, Mainstream Media Remains Silent

Was this racially motivated?

On Saturday evening at roughly 6:45 PM, Jamel Barnwell, a 17 year old black male from West Philadelphia, shot up a bowling alley in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. One man was killed and four other people were injured during the attack. While the shooter is still on the run and the motive remains unknown, what is known is that Jamel Barnwell travelled from inner-city West Philly to the overwhelmingly white suburb of East Norton in order to perpetrate a random mass shooting at the town’s local popular hangout, Our Town Alley.

Christian Science Monitor: If You Don’t Like Public Schools Proselytizing for Islam, You’re a Racist

My latest in PJ Media:

The Christian Science Monitor did its bit Friday for the left’s propaganda barrage, reminding us all that America is a benighted, sinister land full of racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia, such that only Old Joe and his henchmen can save us. The Monitor painted a picture of an innocent World Cultures and Geography class in a New Jersey public school teaching about Islam and getting accused by racist redneck yahoos of proselytizing for Islam. As far as the Monitor is concerned, it’s a story of evil Trump followers hating the sainted Other; in reality, however, it reveals how Islamic indoctrination is becoming increasingly common and accepted in public schools.

At Chatham Middle School in New Jersey, students were shown “a five-minute video introduction to Islam that included statements like ‘Allah is the one God,’ The Quran is a ‘Perfect guide for Humanity,’ and ‘May God help us all find the true faith, Islam.’“ Now just imagine what would have happened if a public school had been found to be teaching that “Jesus is the Son of God,” “the Bible is a perfect guide for humanity,” and “May God help us all find the true faith, Christianity.” But when it comes to the left’s favored religion, it’s a different situation altogether.

COVID-19 Vaccine to be Tested on 6-Year-Olds

As of February 4, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) had received 12,697 injury reports and 653 deaths following COVID-19 vaccination.

Of the cases reported between December 14, 2020, and February 4, 2021, 3.69% were life threatening and the number of deaths account for 5.14% of the total reports. The Pfizer vaccine accounted for 58% of deaths; Moderna’s accounted for 41%.

What’s more, when you look at vaccine-related deaths between January 2020 and January 2021, you find that COVID-19 vaccines account for a staggering 70% of the annual vaccine deaths, and that’s while having been available for less than two months. The first doses of Pfizer vaccine were given in mid-December 2020,2 while Moderna’s vaccine rolled out during the last week of December 2020.3…

Feds Offer Plea Deal to Brooklyn Lawyers Charged in NYPD Molotov Attack

Federal prosecutors filed paperwork confirming that the two attorneys who allegedly threw a “molotov cocktail” into a squad car have been offered deals to reduce their sentences.

Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis were facing potential life sentences for seven charges; among them use of explosives, arson, and conspiracy. On May 29, the pair allegedly made an incendiary device from a bottle of beer, then threw it into a squad car during one of many riots that occurred after the death of George Floyd.

The two were caught on a surveillance camera, with Rahman purportedly holding the bottle in her hand just before the attack. Authorities later say they discovered another unused firebomb in the same vehicle on that video.

The two lawyers were pursued and arrested but pled not guilty. Their plea was not based on innocence but an argument that they were wrongly charged and being used as an example by the same people they were protesting. The details of the February 11 plea deal have not been released.

Woolsey headed the CIA from 1993 to 1995. He co-authored the book, “Operation Dragon,” with Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, who served as acting chief of Romania’s spy service under President Nicolae Ceausescu.

How to Fight Back Against Racist Attacks on White Americans

Poll Finds 44 Per Cent of Liberals Think Cops Killed 40 Times More Unarmed Black Men Than Actual Number

A new poll highlighting the gulf between what people believe and reality has found that 44 per cent of liberals think cops kill almost 40 times more unarmed black men than the actual figure.

According to a database called “Mapping Police Violence” compiled by data experts and activists, police officers in the United States killed 27 unarmed black men by any means in 2019. 13 unarmed black men were fatally shot in the same year by cops.

However, according to a nationally representative survey commissioned by Skeptic Mag, people who describe themselves as “very liberal” or “liberal” think that the actual number of unarmed black men killed by police per year is “about 1,000.”

The 1,000 figure is just under 40 times the actual figure of 27 unarmed deaths.

San Francisco School Board Postpones Plan to Rename 44 Schools, Pledges to Focus on Reopening

The San Francisco Board of Education has announced it will set aside its plan to rename 44 public schools for now and focus instead on reopening schools.

The announcement comes after the board has faced backlash for the plan, which sought to eliminate the names of people who were slave owners people considered to be connected to human rights violations, and people who are “known racists and/or white supremacists,” according to school board guidelines for the renaming plan.

A few of the names slated for elimination under the plan were those of former presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln, as well as current U.S. Senator and former San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein. The process for executing the plan has been widely criticized, as has the timing.

Satan’s Minions, The Financiers of Michael R. Pence, Part 3

Motivated mainly by ego, Mike Pence and his wife Karen craved the upper echelons of political power. Pence always looked to those with money and power who could advance his political goals. One of them was his good friend, David McIntosh, a well-known Trump hater who served as executive director of Vice President Dan Quayle’s and Bush’s Council for Competitiveness. But McIntosh was only the beginning, the DeVos and Koch organizations were the financiers with serious money.

Club for Growth

McIntosh, the pro-amnesty president of Club for Growth (CFG), left his congressional seat to seek the governorship of Indiana in 2000 which opened the door for Pence to run for Indiana’s 6th district. McIntosh introduced Pence to the chairman of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Van Smith, who ran a manufacturing and real estate empire from headquarters in Muncie and could help fund Pence. After years of being on Indiana radio, Pence was well-known and Van Smith encouraged his run. Smith worked with Pence and even helped him achieve the gubernatorial nomination.

Vice Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, Kelly Stanley was Pence’s fund raiser for his 2000 election to Congress. (As Lou Dobbs often stated, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce promotes globalism.)

Slate has suspended Mike Pesca and his podcast, “The Gist,” after he argued that non-blacks can use the n-word in certain contexts during a Slack chat with other employees. The left-leaning online magazine suspended Pesca because his remarks were allegedly insensitive to “the lived experience of colleagues whose experience is different from ours.”

Last week, Slate employees were discussing Donald G McNeil Jr’s resignation from The New York Times for using the N-word during a talk about race while guiding a high school student’s trip to Peru in 2019.

According to the Times, McNeil used the word “in the context of a conversation about racist language.” However, the paper did formally discipline McNeil for using the term in 2019. However, McNeil felt obliged to leave the paper after The Daily Beast published a story about the trip last week.

Smoking Gun: Fauci States COVID PCR Test Has Fatal Flaw; Confession From the “Beloved” Expert of Experts

by Jon Rappoport

The COVID PCR test is a complete fraud

This article is part of my current series on the COVID PCR test. These articles prove that the test is fatally flawed, gives rise to hugely inflated and false case numbers, which in turn lead to the unnecessary and brutal lockdowns.

I’m hoping readers will spread this information far and wide.

OK, here we go. Smoking gun. Jackpot.

Right from the horse’s mouth. Right from the man we’re told is the number-one COVID expert in the nation. What Fauci says is golden truth.

Well, how about THIS?

July 16, 2020, podcast, “This Week In Virology”: Tony Fauci makes a point of saying the PCR COVID test is useless and misleading when the test is run at “35 cycles or higher.” A positive result, indicating infection, cannot be accepted or believed.

Here, in techno-speak, is an excerpt from Fauci’s key quote (starting at the 3m50s mark): “…If you get [perform the test at] a cycle threshold of 35 or more…the chances of it being replication-competent [aka accurate] are miniscule…you almost never can culture virus [detect a true positive result] from a 37 threshold cycle…even 36…”

Each “cycle” of the test is a quantum leap in amplification and magnification of the test specimen taken from the patient.

Too many cycles, and the test will turn up all sorts of irrelevant material that will be wrongly interpreted as relevant.

That’s called a false positive.

What Fauci failed to say on the video is: the FDA, which authorizes the test for public use, recommends the test should be run up to 40 cycles. Not 35.

Therefore, all labs in the US that follow the FDA guideline are knowingly or unknowingly participating in fraud. Fraud on a monstrous level, because…

Millions of Americans are being told they are infected with the virus on the basis of a false positive result, and…

The total number of COVID cases in America-which is based on the test-is a gross falsity.

The lockdowns and other restraining measures are based on these fraudulent case numbers.

Let me back up and run that by you again. Fauci says the test is useless when it’s run at 35 cycles or higher. The FDA says run the test up to 40 cycles, in order to determine whether the virus is there. This is the crime in a nutshell.

Understanding Political Sleight of Hand

Political sleight-of-hand is actually a conman’s game. No one does it better than modern politicians today, not even the best of street conmen. In fact, pretty much all of politics is a carefully crafted and well-rehearsed con. The trick is to catch the “magic” or “con” as it’s happening…in real-time.

Just like learning to watch and catch how the magician does their trick, you can learn to recognize how the political con artist does their magic as well. It’s simply a matter of proper training.

STEP 1 — Wanting to catch the trick — many people don’t want to know how the magician’s trick works, because it will forever destroy their belief in magic. Likewise, in political magic, many don’t want to know they are being conned, because it will forever change how they look at politicians and the promises they make when seeking power. But if you want to know, you can know.

STEP 2 — Learning to detect the diversion — Once you know how the diversionary tactics work and how to recognize them as they are used in real-time, the only thing left is to know where to focus your attention in order to see the trick. The purpose of the diversion is to make you look away from where the trick is taking place.

In 2020, the diversion was COVID19, otherwise known as SARS2, or one of many viral strains of the common cold and flu. According to the magician, COVID19 is the deadliest virus and pandemic to strike the entire world since the black plague. However, ironically, the sudden number of “COVID19” deaths matches almost exactly, the number of annual deaths from cold and flu each year. In fact, the number of total deaths in 2020 was lower than the number in previous years. Coincidentally, the number of annual cold and flu deaths vanished in 2020, instead labeled COVID19 deaths.

Why We All Should Hate Communism

by Dennis Prager

One of the most highly regarded books of the 20th century was Ernest Becker’s “The Denial of Death.” Winner of the 1974 Pulitzer Prize, the book is regarded as a classic for its analysis of how human beings deny their mortality.

But there is something people deny more than mortality: evil. Someone should write a book on the denial of evil; that would be much more important because while we cannot prevent death, we can prevent evil.

The most glaring example of the denial of evil is communism, an ideology that, within a period of only 60 years, created modern totalitarianism and deprived of human rights, tortured, starved and killed more people than any other ideology in history.

Why people ignore, or even deny, communist evil is the subject of a previous column as well as a Prager University video, “Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism?” I will, therefore, not address that question here.

I will simply lay out the facts.

But before I do, I need to address another question: Why is it important that everyone know what communism did?

Here are three reasons:…

Alberta Church Rebellion Succeeding, No Tickets Issued at Calgary Church Service

The Fairview Baptist Church in Calgary participated in a show of Christian civil disobedience last Sunday in protest of Premier Jason Kenney’s refusal to lift restrictions on Alberta churches.

It wasn’t just the lockdown law that brought congregants out, but also the recent arrest of Pastor James Coates from the GraceLife Church near Edmonton.

Coates was arrested for holding a church service in contravention of standing health regulations that restrict religious services, which courts have still not determined are constitutional.

Bylaw enforcement attended the scene at the Fairview Church on Sunday, but when Rebel News approached them to inquire as to what brought law enforcement to the church — the officers fled.

Video: Man Flying Back Into Canada Refuses Airport COVID Test

After a new policy mandating Canadians take an airport COVID test to determine whether they will have to undergo quarantine at a government facility was introduced yesterday, a viral video clip shows a man refusing to take the test before being issued with a fine.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau outlined the details of the new policy in a tweet yesterday afternoon.

“Update: If you’re flying back into Canada, you’ll need to show a negative PCR test result before you board the plane — and as of today, you’ll need to take another PCR test when you land. You’ll then have to wait at an approved hotel, at your own expense, for your test results,” Trudeau tweeted.

Hungary’s Decision to Use Russian Vaccine is Paying Off, PM Orban Says

Hungary made an early commitment to using Russia’s Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine, and the strategy is paying off, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in an interview with German magazine Focus Online published on Monday.

Orban said that in the midst of a pandemic, it is the job of a politician to protect the health of citizens by fulfilling the trust placed in him and taking responsibility. Therefore, as many vaccines as possible need to be obtained as soon as possible, as he who gains time gains life and regains his freedom.

He stressed that there are no Eastern and Western vaccines — only good and bad vaccines exist — and when the Hungarian authorities determine that a product is safe and effective, they are licensed.

Sweden: Muslim Migrant Who Taught Other Muslim Migrants ‘How to Behave’ Toward Women Rapes a Colleague

“He was featured in a local tenant magazine in 2016 and spoke of how he was responsible for teaching other Afghans about how it works in Sweden, what rules apply and “how to behave” towards women. He explained that for many it came as a shock to come to Sweden and realize that women have rights.”

But his expertise about how to behave toward Swedish women failed him when it counted. What won out were more deeply ingrained imperatives. A survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK has said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. Thus it came as no surprise when Muslim migrants in France raped a girl and videoed the rape while praising Allah and invoking the Qur’an. In India, a Muslim gave a Qur’an and a prayer rug to the woman he was holding captive and repeatedly raping. And the victim of an Islamic State jihadi rapist recalled: “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God…He said that raping me is his prayer to God.” In India, a Muslim kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old Hindu girl, and forced her to read the Qur’an and Islamic prayers.

The Perils of Non-Violent Islamism

By Prof. Phyllis Chesler

As the Egyptian-born child of a Yemeni diplomat, Elham Manea and her family traveled widely. But their move from Morocco to Yemen, when Elham was a young teenager, stands out. She compares it to time travel, leaving a free and modern life for a place where women are veiled and public life is gender segregated. She was told that art, music, poetry, and philosophy were forbidden, and that her new, true family of “sisters” and “brothers” were other Muslims who believed all this.

She was taught to “hate,” Jews in particular, and that it was right to deceive infidels. When she was told that a husband is God to his wife, that she would have to sacrifice her blood family in favor of other true believers, she backed away.

She has been backing away ever since.

In The Perils of NonViolent Islamism, her fourth book in English, the University of Zurich political scientist, author, activist, and consultant offers a warning to the West.

In Manea’s view, “nonviolent Islamism,” is the basic building block that leads to violent jihad. And our misreading of that reality can lead to real harm.

If we continue “cancelling” politically incorrect ideas and speech, continue “vilifying dissent,” and “insisting upon the infinite guilt of the West” then, as Russell A. Berman writes in the foreword to this work, “we should expect the real-world consequences of this ideology soon to become clearer and rougher.” Manea believes that repressing dissent can easily turn into repressive practices.

“Cancel culture” may indeed be our “Islamism.”

Nonviolent Islamism’s insidious nature is one of Manea’s most important points. Westerners have been hopelessly gullible in their choice of “smiling and patient” Saudi-funded Muslim Brotherhood/Salafi representatives as their go-to experts on both Islam and Muslims.

“One cannot combat an ideology and fundamentalism by working with the very groups that promote that ideology,” she writes. Further, Western cultural relativism and doctrines of “multiculturalism” has served us and freedom-loving Muslims very, very poorly.

This battle, she writes, is “the global challenge of the 21st century.”

Both hardcore and softcore Islamism must be “challenged and confronted … we need to dismantle the structures and the system that spread(s) this ideology and its radicalized form of Islam.” That means we must adopt significant changes in Islamic schools, mosques, youth groups, and camps; we must retrain paid imams who work in the prison system.[…]

Frontex Border Control Agency Sued by Pro-Migration Activists

There are few institutions in a less enviable position than the embattled European Border and Coast Guard Agency, better known as Frontex. The agency, established in its present form after the peak of the European migrant invasion in 2016, has been criticized by virtually all sides involved in migration policy and migrant welfare. To compound its recent troubles, Frontex is now facing a lawsuit by well funded migrant friendly NGOs, demanding the head of its executive director, Fabrice Leggeri.

Frontex has been set up to monitor and to report on irregular migration facing Europe from the Middle East and Africa. Countries that have opted to protect their borders against illegal mass migration have accused the EU of using Frontex as a smokescreen for channelling migrants into the European mainland rather than helping to stop illegal border crossings. On the other side of the political spectrum, however, left-wing activist and governments have accused Frontex of violating the human rights of migrants and of failing to prevent others from doing so.

The Pandemic Barely Slowed Migration to Europe

While the COVID-19 pandemic completely overshadowed the issue of migration to Europe in the media, that does not necessarily mean migration slowed down much. Although the number of migrants decreased year-on-year, the report published by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Eurostat, and Frontex shows that the number of asylum applications in some EU countries increased.

The key information of the pertinent statistics would probably be that the number of migrants who illegally crossed the EU’s external borders fell by about 13 percent year-on-year in 2020. Instead of migrating from the outside, however, the migration within the continent has become a major problem for some EU countries.

For example, Austria reported even more asylum applications last year than before the pandemic broke out.

Men who have sex with men “continue to be at very high risk of HIV acquisition,” the article states. “Common features of the HIV epidemic in American MSM include role versatility and biological, individual, and social and structural factors.”

“Young MSM have additional risks for HIV because their impulse control is less developed and they are less familiar with serostatus and other risk mitigation discussions,” the article adds.

According to a 2012 study titled “A comparison of sexual behavior patterns among men who have sex with men and heterosexual men and women,” men who have sex with men have higher rates of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI) than women and heterosexual men, despite higher levels of condom use.

Twitter Asks Users to Check Their Language

In an effort to combat “hateful” content, Twitter has relaunched the test on prompt asking users to revise a potentially hateful reply to a tweet. The relaunch of the experiment furthers the platform’s anti-free-speech policies.

“Say something in the moment you might regret? We’ve relaunched this experiment on iOS that asks you to review a reply that’s potentially harmful or offensive,” the company ominously wrote in a tweet announcing the experiment.

So, when Twitter thinks you are about to tweet something offensive, it will prompt you to rethink your words. Users who get the prompt can either “tweet,” “edit,” or “delete,” the reply. There is also a link a user can use to send feedback if they think they should not have gotten the prompt.

  1. Another article claiming there are no excess deaths in 2020. That is disgusting, Baron. There are plenty of lies out there on the covid theme… does our side have to add to them?

    On seeing the fear-porn staged by the WH occupants: Mr. Biden, you are a liar. There were excess deaths in 2020 at around 455k. Of ALL CAUSES. That includes deaths of despair caused by the lockdowns and the ruination of the economy. It includes murders and higher heart disease deaths. And dementia, and what have you. ALL CAUSES.

    Dammit, I am so effing sick of the LIES everywhere and the sheep believing them!!!

    • Where are your stats from? I have seen reports from a number of countries indicating that 2020 deaths are not remarkably high — more or less in line with a bad flu season. It is very easy and quite common to manipulate statistics. Like you, I feel it is important to know the truth.
