Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/26/2021

Members of the European Commission met and agreed that the EU will introduce a vaccine passport system within the next three months. Meanwhile, more than 200,000 people in the UK signed a petition against vaccine passports, which means the issue will be debated in Parliament.

In other news, Israeli officials reportedly believe that Iran is behind an explosion that struck an Israeli-owned cargo ship in the Gulf of Oman. The alleged attack fortunately caused no injuries, and the ship sailed to the nearest port for repairs.

“Conservatism Devoid of Backbone is Doomed to Failure” — Governor Ron Desantis Hammers Spineless Republicans in CPAC Open (Video)

Flordia Governor Ron DeSantis kicked off the annual CPAC Convention Friday morning in Orlando. CPAC is meeting this year in Florida rather than the military zone in Washington DC due to the open business environment in the state.

Governor DeSantis told the crowd, “Now, Florida’s leading on the issues that matter to conservatives, we don’t spout hollow rhetoric, we take decisive action. And what’s true in Florida it’s true for conservatives across the nation. We cannot. We will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear.”

Biden Gives $4 Billion to WHO and Bill Gates for Global COVID Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

For the past few weeks since the roll-out of the experimental COVID mRNA “vaccines” we’ve been told by government health agencies that the massive amounts of injuries and deaths that have occurred just after the injections have nothing to do with the “vaccines.”

And yet, Joe Biden just recently gave the World Health Organization and GAVI, the global vaccine organization founded and funded primarily by Bill Gates, a $4 BILLION pledge for a new COVAX Program which includes a global compensation program for COVID-19 vaccine injuries, courtesy of American taxpayers, in an effort to entice poorer countries who are skeptical of the new COVID vaccines to distribute Big Pharma’s COVID injections.

Wayne Rohde, author of The Vaccine Court, examines this new global compensation program which is patterned after the U.S. Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP).

Customers Want to Know Why Amazon Removed Clarence Thomas Documentary

Critics have lamented that Amazon has stopped streaming a documentary on Justice Clarence Thomas.

Customers have noticed that “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words,” a documentary on the renowned supreme court justice, is no longer available for streaming on Amazon Prime.

To celebrate Black History, Amazon created a page called “Amplify Black Voices,” which “features a curated collection of titles to honor Black History Month across four weekly themes (Black Love, Black Joy, Black History Makers, and Black Girl Magic).”

On Amazon Prime, the company added multiple films, including docu-dramas and documentaries on the country’s first black supreme court justice, Thurgood Marshall. The site even added two films about Anita Hill, the woman who made claims that Thomas sexually harassed her.

But Thomas’s documentary has been removed in all regions.

Fauci: Vaccinated People Can’t Dine Indoors or Go to the Movies Still

The biggest tyrant and fraud in the medical field, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now saying once people get fully vaccinated, they still need to avoid restaurant dining indoors and going to the movies. He said it will be safer to gather indoors again as more people get vaccinated and the COVID-19 cases drop.

The cases will drop when the ruling decides that they do. With this scam being carried out using the PCR tests that give a false positive half the time, it’s impossible to even tell if this virus exists, or if they are simply renaming the flu and the common cold. At this point, who knows if we will ever truly know the truth of what’s going on with this scam and how deep this goes.

Gun Sales in U.S. Set New Records in January, Fresh Off Huge Sales in 2020

Americans are legally buying more guns than they ever have before. A huge surge in gun sales in 2020 has only ratcheted up more in the new year. Americans bought over 4 million guns in January, shattering the record for purchases in a single month. The trend of white-hot demand for guns and ammunition shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

USA Today reported that gun sales surged in January by 60%, setting an all-time monthly record of 4,137,480. The FBI has tracked gun sales since 1998 by keeping tabs on the number of background check applications they receive through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

MSM Finds More Fear: CA COVID Mutant “The Devil” Is a Cause for Concern

The mainstream media will find fear wherever it can, and if it cannot find any, it’ll gin some up. We know the ultimate goal is a total panicked state of fear in the masses, as fearful people make much better slaves.

A COVID-19 variant discovered in California has been dubbed “the devil” by one of the scientists studying it. “This variant is concerning because our data shows that it is more contagious, more likely to be associated with severe illness, and at least partially resistant to neutralizing antibodies,” said senior author Charles Chiu, an infectious diseases physician at the University of California, San Francisco.

This puppet of the ruling class, Dr. Chiu, said that he “fears if its spread isn’t stopped,” it could one day meet the highly infectious United Kingdom variant and swap genes, creating a “nightmare scenario.” Anyone with half a brain knows that this means they are ginning up the fear in order to get more to comply with the vaccine and more financial devastation in the form of lockdowns and totalitarian control over human behavior.

Obama Says He Once Broke a Classmate’s Nose for Using Same Term Libs Use for Black Conservatives

It’s a vile word. In fact, I can think of only one racial slur that’s worse. It was the first time Obama has publicly talked about the incident, which led to plenty of discussion online.

Curiously, one topic didn’t come up that often: Why is it still OK to call black conservatives the same word Obama punched a classmate for?

Last July, Snoop Dogg — once best known as a rapper, now mostly recognized for commercials and as the co-host of a series of interminable shows with Martha Stewart — decided he was in need of attention. He was disinclined to like anyone from the black community who expressed conservative viewpoints, apparently, but simply calling them “Uncle Tom” didn’t quite have the zing he intended.

Instead, he put out a now-deleted Instagram meme with a group of black conservatives he called the “C— Bunch.”

If either the attorney general or the legislature declares the act unconstitutional, then all state and local officials and any publicly funded organization will be prohibited from enforcing it.

San Fransisco to Pull $120 Million From Police Budget to Give to Black Communities

San Fransisco Mayor London Breed (D) announced a new plan Thursday to redistribute funds from the city’s police department to black communities.

The city will spend $120 million over the next two years under the plan, which is being called “The Dream Keeper Initiative.” Under the plan, San Fransisco will invest in areas of major need as identified by black residents in surveys and meetings last year.

This includes job opportunities, health campaigns, housing support, youth programs, and cultural initiatives.

San Francisco has seen a sharp rise in violent crime over the past year, with homicides alone rising 35%. Homelessness and drug use has also risen to historic levels.

Shameless Manipulation of Positive PCR Tests

Story at-a-glance:

  • Every hospitalized patient is tested for COVID, often repeatedly, using PCR tests with high false positive rates
  • False positives are due in considerable part to exorbitant cycle thresholds, which refer to the maximum number of doublings that are allowed during the test
  • WHO has implied that tests should only be performed in those with symptoms, and their results should be interpreted with the clinical context in mind, but most PCR tests in the U.S. are used very differently: to screen asymptomatics at work, at colleges and universities and to permit border crossings
  • In addition to inaccurate PCR results, a variety of other measures have skewed the reported number of deaths from COVID
  • CDC changed the way it coded death certificates for a COVID-caused death last March, to include everyone for whom COVID is in any way contributory to the death
  • By creating excessively loose case definitions for COVID, several of which did not require a single sign of illness, just a positive test, CDC was able to calibrate the number of COVID-positive cases by the rate at which it rolled out tests

They Used to Call it Freedom

There were no 2020 U.S. elections. There was only a kabuki theater version of elections in the U.S. in 2020. A pretend virtual election wherein the outcome was determined long before election day, and the scenes played out on TV screens as the world looked on, created a false impression of a legitimate election process, even as more than 10,000 Americans rushed to offer sworn testimony of massive fraud in numerous states.

Twice now, the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear any evidence at all. Sure, the global news outlets report it this way — “Supreme Court finds no evidence of election fraud” — when in fact, they simply refused to allow any evidence to be presented at all. They denied more than 80 million Americans their day in court, and scrapped any semblance of due process of law. They made sure that no thinking American would ever look to elections as a means of solving anything, ever again.

It’s no secret why the court failed so miserably to keep its’ oath to the American people. If you allow evidence to be presented in court, you will have to rule on that evidence.

If you are forced to find that the evidence is real and credible, then you will have to rule that the entire 2020 election process was rotten with massive fraud and that means, you will have to declare the election results “null and void.” At least six of the nine members of the court lack the decency, honor, and courage to do that, or the job they took a solemn oath to do, and they should all be forced to resign.

Two Cop Killers Are Paroled in Chicago

Convicted cop killers Joseph Hurst and Johnny Veal have been paroled in Chicago.

On Thursday, 68-year-old Veal and 77-year-old Hurst were both granted parole by the Illinois Prisoner Review Board after killing police officers in two separate incidents.

Law Enforcement Today reports that “in Hurst’s case, he was convicted for the 1967 killing Officer Herman Stallworth — as well as wounding the deceased officer’s partner during the incident. Hurst was said to have been pulled over for speeding back in ‘67, which is when he killed he killed Officer Stallworth and wounded his partner. Hurst was originally sentenced to the death penalty, but was then re-sentenced to 100-300 years in prison after the U.S. Supreme Court placed a moratorium on capital punishment in 1972.”

Veal murdered Sergeant James Severin and Officer Anthony Rizzato in 1970 in Chicago’s Cabrini-Green public housing complex.

Two Nuns Dead and 28 COVID Positive 2 Days After Experimental COVID mRNA Injections

Earlier this month WKRC Local 12 in Kentucky reported how two nuns died and 28 out of the 35 nuns at a Northern Kentucky monastery tested positive for COVID just two days after receiving their first experimental mRNA COVID injections.

The leadership of the monastery, as well as the local media, were shocked at the “outbreak” of COVID and resulting two deaths, because the monastery was not open to visitors, and the residents had not traveled outside of the monastery.

If ever one wanted to find a totally locked down facility with no exposure to the outside world, a monastery is about as locked down as one can get.

Nevertheless, following what we have consistently seen in our news reports where a religious belief in vaccines prevents one from thinking logically and even considering the possibility that these experimental, non-FDA approved mRNA injections could have anything to do with the deaths or COVID outbreaks, the experimental injections they received just two days before were never even considered to be the cause of the deaths or illnesses.

We Need a Dose of McCarthyism

Rather than less McCarthyism, we need more. The Communists are taking over and most Republicans are pretending it’s not happening. Let’s hope that former President Trump, speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend, outlines how he will take back the presidency from the Deep State.

Consider that China Joe Biden’s new Ambassador to the United Nations gave a paid speech to a Chinese Communist propaganda center praising China and was confirmed by the Senate by a vote of 78-21 (with one Senator not voting).

To make matters worse, a prominent law professor has given testimony attacking the specter of McCarthyism poisoning our political debate…

Ridding the country of communists and fellow travelers was Joe McCarthy’s mission. I wish he had done a better job but he ran into interference from the Deep State, most notably the CIA. McCarthy was preparing to investigate the CIA when he went into Bethesda Naval Hospital for knee surgery and died from hepatitis. The J.C. Hawkins book, Betrayal at Bethesda, explains the curious sequence of events.

‘Zero Tolerance’ For Anti-Mask Protests, Santa Cruz Police Say

SANTA CRUZ — Ahead of an expected national day of protest against mandated face mask usage designed to reduce transmission of the coronavirus, Santa Cruz leaders are calling for a crackdown on aggressive local actors.

Santa Cruz City Council members on Tuesday night informally requested future consideration of related punitive measures, inspired by recent activities by mask-wearing scofflaws including a group that “stormed Trader Joe’s” on Valentine’s Day, said Councilwoman Martine Watkins. Councilwoman Reneé Golder called out those who had been offering “free hugs” on West Cliff Drive while not wearing masks and Councilman Justin Cummings said he knew of situations where individuals allegedly were attempting to tear masks off others’ faces, including a protest at the Downtown Farmers Market in December.

“Border Measures Are in Place to Protect Canadians”: Health Minister Reacts to Quarantine Hotel Sexual Assault Allegations

Just don’t travel, and you won’t get sexually assaulted. That’s the message the Trudeau government is sending to travelers into Canada following reports that a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted while housed at a federally run COVID-19 quarantine facility.

As Rebel News reported, multiple allegations of sexual assault have surfaced within Justin Trudeau’s travel quarantine system, one of which was allegedly at the hands of a hired security officer performing isolation-at-home checkups, and another within a so-called “COVID hotel.”

Speaking to Canadian Minister of Health Patty Hajdu, MP Michelle Rempel Garner inquired about Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland’s remarks that “people shouldn’t travel” when pushed on reports of sexual assault at a federal quarantine facility, asking if this meant the victim deserved it.

Protesters, Police Gather Outside Two Toronto COVID Hotels

In addition to the weekly gatherings by protesters in downtown Toronto each Saturday, a new regular demonstration has begun taking place outside of one of the city’s quarantine hotels. This week, while the group gathered in opposition to the mandatory COVID quarantine hotels for international travellers, one woman was issued a ticket for trespassing, according to Toronto police.

Rebel reporter David Menzies was previously issued a summons by Toronto police after his efforts to investigate the site.

As Rebel News has reported, the Radisson hotel near Pearson International Airport is being used as a site to detain travellers entering the country in quarantine — contrary to the assertions from a staffer there claiming the building was simply “under construction.”

This Montreal Man Walked Out of a Quarantine Hotel

Meet Montreal-based salesman Shmarya Plotkin. He makes several trips via automobile every year to New York state, given that the lion’s share of his customer base is in the U.S.A. He’s been making these trips without incident for some 25 years. But recently, when driving back to Quebec, things went sideways — big time.

Firstly, he encountered a gruff border agent who asked Shmarya if he had bought anything in the U.S.

Since Shmarya is an honest man, he provided an honest answer, that he had indeed bought a few boxes of pasta costing about $15. So much for honesty being the best policy. This seemed to inexplicably trigger the border guard, to such an extent that he told Shmarya he had to be immediately quarantined at a Montreal hotel! What’s more, he had to drive there without making any stops, even though Shmarya’s house was on the way, and he wanted to grab some food and a change of clothing. But he was sternly told that there were no exceptions to this rule.

Toronto Police Target Protesters Holding Signs, Megaphones at Anti-Lockdown Rally

When I visit Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square or Queen’s Park these days, I can only think of nature films. You know, those videos that document a pride of lions on the African Serengeti, stalking a massive herd of wildebeest. But even for the king of the jungle, a wildebeest makes for a formidable opponent, and so it is that these big cats patiently observe the herd, looking for the old, the young, the sick and the injured.

Could the Allies Have Liberated Poland in WWII? New Book Claims De Gaulle Worked With Stalin Against That Plan

The Kremlin during the Second World War acknowledged Charles de Gaulle as the leader of the government in exile of Free France because he had helped torpedo Winston Churchill’s plan for the Western allies to liberate Central Europe, according to French historian and former head of Le Figaro Magazine Henri-Christian Giraud in his book “De Gaulle and the Communists”.

The book has been re-released, but this time supplemented with Russian archive material. The book has proven so controversial and harmful to the image of de Gaulle that Giraud has only managed to defend his thesis due to the multitude of sources he used. This is especially important due to the fact that the author is the grandson of Henri Giraud, who was de Gaulle’s main rival in the struggle to take over the French Resistance. Hence, the creation of this monumental, 1000-page tome took 10 years of academic research.

“In response to accusations of subjectivity, I can only defend myself with the strength of the arguments I am using. There are many of them, and they have never been questioned for a simple reason; that I base my story on the reports of leading figures in the Gaullist movement,” Giraud told the Polish media outlet Rzeczpospolita.

The woman was deemed, “incapacitated to provide valid consent,” according to the nursing home.

EU Lawmaker Likens AstraZeneca to ‘Unreliable Second-Hand Car Salesman’ As Low European Jab Confidence Hampers Vaccine Uptake

Doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine are going unused across the EU amid low confidence in the jab after the company was repeatedly criticized by Brussels for not sharing sufficient data and supply problems.

Speaking on Thursday, EU lawmaker Esther de Lange, a vice president of the European People’s party, reiterated the challenge of getting “reliable data” from AstraZeneca.

European Union Planning to Introduce Digital Vaccine Passports Within Three Months

During a virtual summit on Thursday, European Union (EU) leaders agreed to introduce a “digital vaccine certificate” program within the next three months.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that EU member states have agreed on a uniform standard for the data that will be stored on these vaccine passports but each country will decide what people are allowed to do when they travel with a vaccine passport.

According to von der Leyen, these vaccine passports will store the following data:

  • A unique identification code
  • Information on the type of vaccines the holder has received
  • A “minimum data set that is necessary for each certificate”

France: Food Fight: Vegetarian School Menu in Lyon Sparks Protests

A decision by the city of Lyon to temporarily serve only vegetarian meals in school cafeterias has provoked a backlash from the highest levels of the national government and protests by farmers who see it as a threat to their way of life.

The Green Party, which won the municipal elections last summer in Lyon, announced late last week that instead of having 2 menu options, one meat and one vegetarian, schools would only offer the vegetarian option to make foodservice more efficient. Fish and eggs will continue to be served, making it something less than a strictly vegetarian menu.

In the next two weeks, Hungary will face the worst spike in new infections, Prime Minister Viktor Orban warned in a Facebook message on Thursday.

Orban released the short message after meeting with “a group of medical scientists with very special knowledge.” He explained that this group predicts the number of new infections based on mathematical models and the level of coronavirus present in wastewater, among other things.

“I have only bad news. The situation is that we are facing the most difficult two weeks of the epidemic we have experienced so far,” Orban said. “Due to the emergence of new mutations, the number of new infections is quickly rising and will continue to increase.”

Kaczynski: Anyone Who Tries to Break Up the United Right is Working Against Poland, Polish Families and Values

Recently PiS’s coalition partners within the ruling United Right have presented differing opinions concerning several issues: energy, the EU recovery fund and local elections. Jaroslaw Kaczynski has thus been asked whether the United Right actually remains united.

“We are dealing with an issue, which is of course very sad. Poland is currently in a very difficult situation due to the pandemic. At the same time, it’s in a situation that gives us huge opportunities. These opportunities can be seized, but the condition for that is unity. Meanwhile, it turns out that particular motives prevail and often, I suspect, simply personal ones,” he said.

Kaczynski evaluated that at stake is the future of Poland over the next few years and the upcoming elections, as well as avoiding disaster for the country — the disaster being the opposition taking over power in Poland.

The German leader also stated “This will make travelling within the EU possible and could pave the way for further travel from third countries into the EU,” suggesting that it will take three months to implement a vaccine passport system.

Spanish Region to Make COVID Vaccine Compulsory, Fine Those Who Decline Up to Eur60k

Compulsory vaccination but legal immunity for governments and vaccine-makers

The regional government of Galicia in northwestern Spain has announced that the Covid-19 vaccine will be compulsory for all its 2.7 million inhabitants, and that fines for those who don’t follow the rules will go from EUR1,000 to EUR60,000.

Galicia’s regional president Alberto Nuñez Feijóo made the announcement at a press conference on Tuesday, but his government has been working on passing the draft law since last November.

Now that it is set to be approved with a majority in the Galician parliament, the regional government will consider the “unjustified” refusal of anyone who is called up to have the Covid-19 vaccine a “minor offense”, resulting in a penalty of EUR1,000 to EUR3,000.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said that in the year leading up to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s imposition of the first coronavirus lockdown, crimes involving a knife or a sharp weapon rose by six per cent, up from 47,388 to 50,019. This latest figure is more than double the 23,945 offences recorded in 2014, the point at which the general historical trend of crime falling went into reverse.

UK Supreme Court Rules Shamima Begum, Who Joined ISIS as a Teen, May Not Return to UK

Shamima Begum, the British teenager who joined ISIS to commit terrorism in Syria, has been denied her plea to return to the United Kingdom.

In a unanimous ruling on Friday, the U.K.’s Supreme Court ruled that Begum’s rights were not breached when she was refused permission to come home. Begum, now 21, argues that she should be allowed to return to the United Kingdom to challenge the then-Home Secretary’s decision to strip her of her British citizenship.

Begum was one of several teenagers from East London who left the U.K. and traveled to Syria to join ISIS in 2015, renouncing her British citizenship in the process of becoming a founding member of the short-lived Islamic caliphate. Dreams of a world run by extremist Muslims were cut short by former President Donald Trump, whose special forces cornered and killed the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who spent his final days hiding in a cave with two of his own children as hostages.

The petition on the government and parliament website states “We want the Government to commit to not rolling out any e-vaccination status/immunity passport to the British public.”

It continues, “Such passports could be used to restrict the rights of people who have refused a Covid-19 vaccine, which would be unacceptable.”

Caroline Glick: Netanyahu and Israel’s Nevernetanyahu Right

Next month, Israelis will go to the polls to elect a new 120-seat Knesset. It will be Israel’s fourth general election in just under two years—an all-time record. To form a governing coalition, one member of Knesset—generally the head of the largest party—needs to form a coalition from several parties in the Knesset that together control at least 61 legislative seats.

On the face of things, Israel’s elections merry-go-round makes no sense. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu receives high ratings from the public. Polls consistently show that Israelis prefer Netanyahu as prime minister over all of his possible rival combined. So why the deadlock?

Ironically, Israel’s political instability is a function of Netanyahu’s success.

Netanyahu is Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, having surpassed Israel’s founding prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, a year ago.

The secret of Netanyahu’s success is that the center of Israeli politics has converged with his positions. Netanyahu now defines the center.

Despite Netanyahu’s demonization at the hands of the media at home and abroad, his positions are not extreme. They involve standing up for Israel’s rights and interests, developing the economy, fighting Israel’s enemies when necessary and building alliances with foreign governments to achieve common goals when possible. These policies have brought Israel sustained prosperity, peace and security.

The fact that Netanyahu stands at the center of Israel’s political map doesn’t mean that he has abandoned the Right. He hasn’t. And a large majority of Israelis have joined him there. Less than ten percent of Israelis define themselves today as leftists. In every Knesset election since 2009, center-right parties in Israel’s multiparty parliamentary system have received nearly three-quarters of Knesset seats…

“Where the F**k Are the Checks? They Went to Raytheon So They Can Bomb My Country”

British-Syrian journalist Richard Medhurst responded to Joe Biden’s missile strike on Syria by demanding to know, “Where the f**k are the checks? They went to Raytheon so they can bomb my country.”

Biden ordered the attack yesterday, claiming it targeted Iranian-backed militias in eastern Syria while the Pentagon spun the move as a “defensive precision strike.”

Many observers pointed to the bombing as yet another sign that despite the administration’s obsession with flaunting its “diversity” and supposedly progressive virtues, the military-industrial complex is still in control.

Children in the Philippines Have Not Been Allowed Outside Their Homes for a Year

The Philippines is not unique in keeping children at home. Spain did the same thing for several weeks at the start of the pandemic. But it is an outlier in keeping them confined for this long. “Everyone accepts that it could result in poor psycho-social effects on children,” says Bernadette Madrid of the Child Protection Unit at the University of the Philippines. But she, along with many paediatricians, psychiatrists, epidemiologists, public-health specialists and parents, believes that the benefits of keeping children at home outweigh the risks, in part owing to the nature of Filipino households.

It is rare for children to suffer serious cases of covid-19. But they can still catch the virus and transmit it to others. That is a problem given the preponderance of multi-generational households in the Philippines. Less than a tenth of elderly Filipinos live alone. And more than 10% of people older than 60 live with their grandchildren but not their children, who are often working elsewhere.

Gordon Chang: Biden Approves Financing China’s Military

China expert Gordon Chang, the author of “The Coming Collapse of China” and a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute, points out Biden has reversed a Trump action that prevented Americans from financing China’s military.

On Jan. 26, the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control issued a license permitting Americans to continue acquiring shares in certain companies associated with “Communist Chinese Military Companies,” known as CCMCs, until May 27.

The previous deadline, set by the Trump administration, was Jan. 28.

Trump’s order “stopped investors, subject to wind-down provisions, from purchasing or possessing shares in any company designated a CCMC.”

In short, Chang wrote, “Trump ordered Americans to stop financing China’s military, the People’s Liberation Army.”

WHO Investigation Into COVID-19 Origin is Blatantly Corrupt

Story at-a-glance:

  • February 9, 2021, the World Health Organization’s investigative commission, tasked with identifying the origin of SARS-CoV-2, announced the Wuhan Institute of Virology and two other biosafety level 4 laboratories in Wuhan, China, had nothing to do with the COVID-19 outbreak, and that the lab-escape theory would no longer be part of the team’s investigation
  • According to the WHO team and its Chinese counterparts, SARS-CoV-2 may have piggybacked its way into the Wuhan market in shipments of frozen food from other areas of China where coronavirus-carrying bats are known to reside, or another country
  • WHO has declared its China investigation completed, and is considering expanding its scope to look into other countries as the potential source of the virus
  • China was allowed to hand pick the members of the WHO’s investigative team, which includes Peter Daszak, Ph.D., who has close professional ties to the WIV and has gone on record dismissing the lab-origin theory as “pure baloney.” He was also the mastermind behind the publication of a scientific statement condemning such inquiries as “conspiracy theory”
  • Meanwhile, a Bayesian analysis study claims to show “beyond a reasonable doubt that SARS-CoV-2 is not a natural zoonosis but instead is laboratory derived.” According to the author, “It is a 99.8% probability SARS-CoV-2 came from a laboratory and only a 0.2% likelihood it came from nature”

When an investigation is led by individuals with financial and professional stakes in the outcome, what happens? Nothing. And that’s where we’re at with the World Health Organization’s investigative team1 tasked with getting to the bottom of SARS-CoV-2’s origin.

Report: Joe Biden’s DHS Protects Most Illegal Aliens With ‘Sanctuary Country’ Orders

Prior to President Joe Biden taking office, many feared that his stance on immigration would be detrimental to the United States.

In addition to the fact that immigrants now view the U.S. as having an open door policy, Biden is creating policy’s and issuing orders that further jeopardize the safety of all Americans.

According to reports, almost all of the illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States will now be protected from arrest and deportation, after President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued new orders to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

New guidance from acting ICE Director Tae Johnson instructs agents not to pursue illegal aliens for arrest and deportation until they have been convicted of aggravated felonies against Americans…

According to Breitbart, should ICE agents try to arrest an illegal alien who is not a convicted aggravated felon, or a known or suspected terrorist or gang member, they must first get approval through an arduous chain of command process where a field director or a special agent in charge greenlights the effort.

Former DHS official, now with the Heritage Foundation, Lora Ries said in a statement:

“Forget sanctuary cities — this turns America into a sanctuary country. Prominent Leftists have spent the past months calling to ‘abolish ICE.’ The Biden administration effectively just made their wish come true,”

America’s War Against Parents and the Destruction of Childhood

Dr. Rachel Levine, born as Richard Levine, the name his parents gave to him, is a transgender doctor who has been nominated by the Biden administration to serve as the Assistant Secretary of Health.

Levine has two children, David and Dayna, through his ex-wife Martha Peaslee Levine. They allegedly divorced in 2013, after Richard Levine transitioned into a woman and became Rachel Levine.

In Dr. Levine’s confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate today, Senator Rand Paul questioned Levine on the topic of genital mutilation of minors, which is universally condemned by organizations such as the World Health Organizaion, the United Nations Children Fund, and the United Nations Population Fund, where genital mutilation is recognized as a violation of human rights.

Senator Paul also addressed the issue of forcing minors to take hormone blocking drugs against the advice of their parents, and specifically asked if Dr. Levine would condemn these practices.

Dr. Levine refused to answer the questions.
