“We Expect the Worst” — German Towns to Lose Millions in Greensill Bank Collapse

Germany’s Bafin has frozen accounts at Greensill’s Gremany-based bank as its parent company’s debt-repackaging business has tumbled into administration. And unfortunately, the demise of the bank will likely take tens of millions of euros of public money that had been invested in short-term high-interest accounts.

Millions of dollars belonging to German municipalities had reportedly been parked at the Bremen, Germany-based bank. And because towns and cities aren’t protected by a German deposit-protection scheme that shields assets belonging to individuals, town managers and elected officials fear they won’t be able to recover the taxpayer money, adding to the financial strain as the world struggles to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Activists Call for Oprah Memes to be Banned, Calls Them “Digital Blackface”

A social justice organization has told people to stop using memes of Oprah Winfrey from the recent Meghan Markle and Prince Harry interview, calling it “digital blackface.” Oprah’s facial expressions from the interview have resulted in memes that have gone viral.

According to the Slow Factory Foundation, an organization dedicated to environmental and social justice, non-blacks should not use Oprah’s memes from the interview. In an Instagram post, the organization defined “digital blackface” as an “online phenomenon” where non-blacks, particularly whites, use images of black people to express their emotions.

At Least 100 Protesters Detained in Portland, Oregon; Police Charge 13

Portland police detained a crowd of at least 100 protesters at a demonstration Friday night, minutes after the group began marching in the street and some began breaking windows, police said.

The march began after 9 p.m. along a street in the Pearl District, and officers told the group that the street was open to traffic, according to police. When some of the demonstrators began breaking windows, officers “created a perimeter around the group,” police said.

“To everyone inside the perimeter: you are being detained for investigation of a crime. You are not free to leave,” Portland police said on Twitter.

As officers formed the perimeter, some people on the outside threw rocks and cans of beer at officers, who used pepper spray, police said.

Biden Backs Law That Could Put 57 Million Americans Out of Work

Although President Joe Biden has been doing his best to depress the American economy by killing thousands of union jobs and furthering America’s plunge into generational debt, it’s all a pittance compared to what the Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2021 could do if signed into law.

The PRO Act, passed by the House of Representatives last month and endorsed by Biden this week, could obliterate as many as 57 million jobs — that’s how many Americans freelanced in 2019, according to a survey released that year — by essentially outlawing freelance employment.

COVID Vaccine Tracker: Almost 20% Have Been “Vaccinated”

Since vaccine distribution began in the United States on December 14, more than 95.7 million doses of mRNA gene therapy have been administered. That means (if we can trust the CDC’s numbers) 18.8% of the total U.S. population, according to federal data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have willingly taken this experimental shot.

The U.S. is currently administering over 2.1 million shots a day, according to NPR. And then they admit the truth: most people don’t actually want this garbage injected into their bodies.

The speed of vaccination has improved since December, but there are still millions of more doses distributed to states than have been administered to people. —NPR

Joe Biden wants you all “vaccinated” even though legally speaking, what they are injecting is not a vaccine, but a gene therapy.

COVID-19 mRNA Shots Are Legally Not Vaccines

If their numbers aren’t being overstated (which is highly likely considering all the false statistics and lies they put out to panic people into getting this shot in the first place) almost 20% of people have taken the vaccine willingly. But 80% have firmly said “no” even as they open up the availability of the gene therapy shots to more and more.

Gov. Whitmer Under Growing Scrutiny Over COVID-Related Nursing Home Deaths Akin to Cuomo Scandal

On 11 March, Michigan county prosecutor Peter Lucido announced that he would investigate nursing home deaths in relation to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s COVID policies for long-term care facilities. He did not rule out criminal charges against the governor, who risks getting mired in a scandal like her New York state counterpart, Andrew Cuomo.

Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido has recently urged those who lost family members to COVID in nursing homes to request medical records concerning their relatives’ “transfer, incident or death” and forward them to local law enforcement. The prosecutor revealed that two reports — in Warren and Shelby Township — had already been filed, as cited by CBS Detroit. Lucido earlier suggested that Whitmer could potentially be charged with two state misdemeanours, one count each of wilful neglect of office and reckless endangerment of a person’s life.

Michigan Gov’ Whitmer’s Nursing Home Order

“If we find there’s been wilful neglect of office, if we find there’s been reckless endangerment of a person’s life by bringing them in, then we would move forward with charges against the Governor. Of course, we would. Nobody’s above the law in this state,” Lucido told 7 Action News earlier this week.

Jordan Peterson Shares Poll Showing White Liberals Embrace Using Violence to Pursue Political Goals More Than Conservatives

Following the summer of regular riots in American cities by Black Lives Matter and Antifa members as well as the January storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters, there is debate about which side of the political spectrum embraces violence to achieve their goals. A poll found that white liberals are far more likely to support using violence to advance their political agenda.

The new data was provided by the American National Elections Studies, which was established by the National Science Foundation in 1977. The Time Series Study has been conducted before and after U.S. general elections since 1948. The 2020 ANES Time Series Study was carried out by the University of Michigan and Stanford University.

The letter, reviewed by the Daily Beast, warned that failure to comply with the demands would result in a lawsuit.

Lindell’s “Vocl” is a platform that will be a “cross between Twitter and YouTube.”

Taibbi: The Sovietization of the American Press

Authored by Matt Taibbi via TK News

I collect Soviet newspapers. Years ago, I used to travel to Moscow’s Izmailovsky flea market every few weeks, hooking up with a dealer who crisscrossed the country digging up front pages from the Cold War era. I have Izvestia’s celebration of Gagarin’s flight, a Pravda account of a 1938 show trial, even an ancient copy of Ogonyek with Trotsky on the cover that someone must have taken a risk to keep.

These relics, with dramatic block fonts and red highlights, are cool pieces of history. Not so cool: the writing! Soviet newspapers were wrought with such anvil shamelessness that it’s difficult to imagine anyone ever read them without laughing. A good Soviet could write almost any Pravda headline in advance. What else but “A Mighty Demonstration of the Union of the Party and the People” fit the day after Supreme Soviet elections? What news could come from the Spanish civil war but “Success of the Republican Fleet?” Who could earn an obit headline but a “Faithful Son of the Party”?

Reality in Soviet news was 100% binary, with all people either heroes or villains, and the villains all in league with one another (an SR was no better than a fascist or a “Right-Trotskyite Bandit,” a kind of proto-horseshoe theory). Other ideas were not represented, except to be attacked and deconstructed. Also, since anything good was all good, politicians were not described as people at all but paragons of limitless virtue — 95% of most issues of Pravda or Izvestia were just names of party leaders surrounded by lists of applause-words, like “glittering,” “full-hearted,” “wise,” “mighty,” “courageous,” “in complete moral-political union with the people,” etc.

Some of the headlines in the U.S. press lately sound suspiciously like this kind of work:

  • Biden stimulus showers money on Americans, sharply cutting poverty
  • Champion of the middle class comes to the aid of the poor
  • Biden’s historic victory for America

The Real Reasons Why Americans Will Defy COVID Mandates, Vaccines

I suspect a large portion of the public is at least partially aware when they are being pushed or lured into a specific way of thinking.

We have certainly had enough experience with institutions trying to manage our thoughts over the years. Governments and mainstream media outlets in particular have made the manufacture of public consent their top priority. This is what they spend most of their time, money and energy on.

All other issues are secondary.

The media does not objectively report facts and evidence, it spins information to plant an engineered narrative in the minds of its viewers. But the public is not as stupid as they seem to think. This is probably why trust in the media has plunged by 46% in the past ten years, hitting an all time low this year of 27%.

Two Stanford Doctors Blast the Nation’s COVID Response — “Worst Public Health Mistake in Last 100 Years”

Two world-renowned doctors at Stanford recently discussed the nation’s response to the China coronavirus (COVID).

Dr. Scott Atlas was a late member of the President’s team which addressed COVID. He was immediately shunned and shamed by the media because his narrative was different from that of fellow team members Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx.

Dr. Atlas recently shared the following at an online conference:

The coronavirus pandemic has been a great tragedy, there can be no doubt about that. But it has also exposed profound issues in America that now threaten the very principles of freedom and order that we Americans often take for granted.

First, I have been shocked at the enormous power of the government, to unilaterally decree, to simply close businesses and schools by edict, restrict personal movement, mandate behavior, and eliminate our most basic freedoms, without any end and little accountability.

Second, I remain surprised at the acceptance by the American people of draconian rules, restrictions, and unprecedented mandates, even those that are arbitrary, destructive, and wholly unscientific.

This crisis has also exposed what we all have known existed, but we have tolerated for years: the overt bias of the media, the lack of diverse viewpoints on campuses, the absence of neutrality in big tech controlling social media, and now more visibly than ever, the intrusion of politics into science. Ultimately, the freedom to seek and state the truth is at risk here in the United States.

Not to be outdone, a fellow doctor at Stanford, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, discussed the COVID response this week. Bhattacharya was one of the co-authors, along with Dr. Atlas, of the Great Barrington Declaration:

Watch: Fauci Admits COVID Shot is New Technology Being Tested on Humans

The Covid-19 mRNA vaccine is an experimental technology that has never been used on humans in the past, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted in a recent interview.

Speaking to Mexican comedian Eugenio Derbez, Fauci was grilled about why the vaccines were fast-tracked by the FDA, and how we can be sure they’re safe from long-term effects.

“Are you completely positive that this new technology is safe? How can we be sure there won’t be long-term effects when these vaccines were seemingly developed so quickly and have only been tested for months and not years?”

Fauci goes on to try to assure the public that “There was no compromise of safety,” and, “Almost all of the bad effects… occur between 15-45 days from the time you get vaccinated.”

In all this time, why hasn’t the mainstream media asked Fauci these basic questions?

Later in the interview, Fauci appears to begin sweating during the hard line of questioning.

Now, math education itself has been deemed “racist.” A group of educators just released a document calling for a transformation of math education that focuses on “dismantling white supremacy in math classrooms by visibilizing the toxic characteristics of white supremacy culture with respect to math.”

Among the educators’ recommendations, which officials in some states are promoting, are calls to “identify and challenge the ways that math is used to uphold capitalist, imperialist, and racist views,” “provide learning opportunities that use math as resistance,” and “encourage them to disrupt the disproportionate push-out of people of color in [STEM] fields.”

Beyond activism, these recommendations also argue that traditional approaches to math education promote racism and white supremacy, such as requiring students to show their work or prioritizing correct answers to math problems. The document claims that current math teaching is problematic because it focuses on “reinforcing objectivity and the idea that there is only one right way” while it “also reinforces paternalism.”

You Can’t Fight What You Can’t See

The Biden/Harris Administration is going full Marxist and one leading Republican has announced in response to this clear and present danger a Dr. Seuss book drive. Meanwhile, America celebrated a communist holiday, International Women’s Day, and China Joe announced “maternity flight suits” for women in the military. That’s on top of transgenders in the Armed Forces.

The Pentagon has announced that American tax dollars will pay for the sex change operations they need.

Let’s just raise the white flag and get it over with.

Under these circumstances, don’t be fooled into coughing up dollars for any Republican, not even the former president. They don’t know how to win, and Trump demonstrated he didn’t know how to stay in power. Let’s face it: he let down his people.

If you are on any Republican lists, you are getting bombarded with requests for money. Read these appeals carefully. They tend to be focused on how Republican politicians are suffering at the hands of Big Tech and that they will do something about this “cancel culture.”

OTTAWA — Seven Ontario residents are facing $1,550 fines each and had to drive home in the middle of the night after police discovered an illegal gathering at an AirBNB property in Chelsea, Que.

The MRC des Collines de l’Outaouais police responded to a complaint about a gathering on Chem. Hogan in Cantley at 1:20 a.m. Saturday.

Police say officers found seven people staying at the rented property, which had been rented through AirBNB by one of the people at the gathering.

The guests were ordered to leave the property and head home by either car or taxi. Police allowed the initial tenant to stay at the property.

Police say statements of $1,550 will be issued to each person for having violated Quebec’s Public Health Act.

Coronavirus Pandemic Casts Long Shadow Over Dutch Elections

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Housing shortages, the environment, health care, education. Dutch voters have plenty of issues to consider in next week’s election but one towers over all others: the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Dutch vote for the 150-seat lower house of parliament, deeply conscious that more than 16,000 people in the Netherlands have died of COVID-19 and the country is in the midst of a tough lockdown that includes a night-time curfew.

“I do indeed think that the elections this year are really about the coronavirus, of course,” said student Ayoub Aouragh. “Because we have seen that the Cabinet has made many mistakes in the past and we now actually want to see how we can emerge from this together.”…

Curfew for Men After 6pm: What Brits Make of Proposal Meant to Keep Women Safe

The First Minister of Wales on Friday dismissed suggestions of a 6 PM curfew for men, adding that it was “a sad distraction when what’s needed is a proper discussion about women’s safety”.

A number of British politicians have jumped on the idea of banning men from the streets during the evening — a proposal that grew popular following the disappearance of Sarah Everard, who vanished while on her way home late in the evening in south London.

A Green Party peer, Baroness Jones, suggested this week that a curfew for men would make women feel safe at night but admitted it was not an “entirely serious” proposal. The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, went on to make an official clarification on the idea, as he tweeted:

Exploring the Oxford-AstraZeneca Eugenics Links

While the two currently available COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S. are based on novel mRNA technology — which in actuality are experimental gene therapies, not true vaccines — the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is a bit different. It uses a chimpanzee adenovirus vector genetically engineered to express the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein instead.

In the video above, James Corbett of The Corbett Report interviews1 Whitney Webb, a writer and researcher who covers intelligence, Big Tech, surveillance and civil liberties, about some of the basic differences between these vaccines.

They then delve into the curious ties between Oxford University, AstraZeneca and the British eugenics movement — a topic Webb covered in her in-depth December 26, 2020, investigative report “Developers of Oxford-AstraZeneca Vaccine Tied to U.K. Eugenics Movement,”2 co-written with Jeremy Loffredo.

The Corbett Report interview and this article offer only a cursory summary of the findings in that report, so I highly recommend reading Webb’s original article for a more detailed view.

Leftist Leader of Welsh Govt Would Consider ‘Temporary’ Curfew for All Men

The leader of the devolved government of British home nation Wales has become the latest leftist politician to say he would consider imposing a 6 p.m. curfew for all men following the death of London woman Sarah Everard.

Speaking to the BBC on Friday, Labour’s Mark Drakeford — who as the First Minister in Wales is the head of its regional government, roughly equivalent to a state government in the U.S. — said that while such a curfew was not a priority, he said it could be a “temporary intervention” in a “crisis”.

Sarah Everard: Virtual and Doorstep Vigils Held Across the UK

The prime minister and the Duchess of Cambridge are among those to pay tribute to Sarah Everard as virtual and doorstep vigils are held across the UK.

Boris Johnson said he and his fiancee, Carrie Symonds, will join others in lighting a candle for the 33-year-old at 21:30 GMT.

Planned evening vigils were called off because of Covid restrictions, but hundreds gathered at Clapham Common.

It led to confrontation with the police who tweeted that it was “unsafe”.

Lambeth police tweeted: “The gathering at #ClaphamCommon is unsafe. Hundreds of people are tightly packed together in breach of the regulations and risking public health.

“We are urging people to go home and we thank those who have been engaging with officers and who are leaving.”

Earlier, Met Police officer Wayne Couzens, 48, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court charged with her kidnap and murder.

The organisers of a vigil in Clapham, south London, said earlier they were cancelling the event because police did not “constructively engage” with plans.

Gen. Pacepa worked in the much-dreaded Romanian Securitate Intelligence Agency from 1951 until 1978 when he defected to the U.S., having been granted political asylum under Jimmy Carter. Under assumed identities, he was able to elude and survive Ceausescu’s agents who were bent on revenge and on collecting the $1 million reward for his capture, dead or alive.

UK: Tories Call Halt on First Deep Coal Mine in Decades, ‘We Must Satisfy John Kerry’ Says Fmr Chief Science Adviser

Boris Johnson’s government has halted development of the first new deep coal mine in Britain for decades, after a former Chief Science Adviser insisted the country “must satisfy John Kerry” on its devotion to the climate change agenda.

The long-planned mine in Cumbria, Northern England, would have created hundreds of jobs providing the high-quality coke which remains necessary to produce steel — the dream of so-called green hydrogen as a replacement for coke in the industry remains far from being fully realised, particularly at scale — but the development has now been “called in” for a public inquiry by the Johnson administration.

China’s 2021 Defence Budget Makes Reunification Plan With Taiwan ‘More Obvious’: Taiwanese Expert

Despite last year recording its lowest economic growth in three decades, largely because of the fallout of the COVID-19 epidemic, China has increased its defence spending this year by 6.8 percent to $209 billion. Beijing’s defence budget grew by only 6.6 percent last year.

The Chinese defence budget for 2021, unveiled at the annual session of the National People’s Congress (NPC) which closed on Thursday, has made plans to reunify with Taiwan even “more obvious”, Tzu Chieh Hung — a Chinese military expert at Taipei-based think-tank the Institute for National Defense and Security Research (INDSR) — told Sputnik.

UK: Restaurant Boss Who Earned £1m a Year by Smuggling Migrants to Work on Cannabis Farms Jailed for 11 Years

A RESTAURANT boss who earned £1million a year by smuggling migrants into Britain to work on cannabis farms has been jailed for 11 years.

Tuan Anh Do ran a trafficking racket in which gang members were paid for each person they sneaked in.

But his six-year illegal immigration scam was smashed when his network was infiltrated by an undercover police officer.

Jailing him this week, Judge Elizabeth Nicholls told him: “These actions are barbaric and inhumane. Those who participate have no regard for those who they transport, who are simply objects to be used for financial gain.”

Do, 55, had himself spent time in a refugee camp in Hong Kong as he made his way from Vietnam to Britain.

He ran a restaurant in Blackburn and cannabis farms across the North West.

His crime empire unravelled when the officer, posing as a trucker, was offered £2,000 a head to smuggle migrants in his lorry from Belgium to Hull — with the promise of 20 people on each trip he made.

Amazon Faces Criticism for Saying it Banned Popular Book for Framing Transgenderism as a “Mental Illness”

Amazon said it removed a book on transgender issues, which has been on the platform for about three years, because it no longer sells books that “characterize transgender and other gender identities as mental illnesses.”

“My book does no such thing. Nowhere have I ever said or framed LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness,” the book’s author Ryan T Anderson said in a statement.

Anti-censorship advocates see it as a move to quash mainstream views on the issue of transgenderism.

  1. MORE police brutality, this time from the Czech Republic.

    A man is beaten to the ground and handcuffed while his 4 year old child screams in terror. What was his “crime”? Why not wearing a mask, of course! And outdoors to boot.

    Let me see if I get it straight: in order to make sure that people stay healthy, we need to have fully armed Gestapo police beat the crap out of them and haul them off to jail where they will no doubt catch the Chi Com flu virus while in custody.

    https://citizenfreepress.com/breaking/disturbing-video-from-czech-republic/

    • The story doesn’t seem complete: It was not the Police, it was the “Town Police”, which is more of a fundraising parking ticket service/security guard. The guy says on the video to the lady filming it to “call the state police”, ie – the real Police. The city guard police do not have powers that real police do, and in fact, I think this incident is more similar to the Texas bank security guard taking down old lady, then “police brutality” as such.

      I agree with the UK Column News stance on this: That this sort of thing is caused by the media driving people to insane levels of fear, and over reacting security guards and police are the result.

      • I’m not sure of the point you’re making. The innocent man was beaten down for not wearing a mask by a police officer of some sort.

        Regardless of what jurisdiction they were from, they are considered to be “law enforcement officers.”

        This behavior also goes a long way towards explaining why many of us who consider ourselves law abiding citizens who support the cops can no longer do so when the LEOs willingly engage in thuggery like this.

        • City police in Czechia is now informally referred to as the Mestapo… translated as Townstapo. This is not the first case of abuse.

        • It is one of the peculiarities of our Mafia State of Czechia – the Town Police is not really “law enforcement”, but “town hall ordinance enforcers”, like the parking tickets, or fining dog owners for not picking up their s.. They really are just a security guard with “police” written on their back. The guys on the video probably didn’t have any lawful authority to hold that guy down.

          My point was that I believe it is the media fear campaign that drives this behavior, be it from the real police, or fake police like this.

          PS: But the point I wanted to make, “That the story seems incomplete”, was that they left the 3 year old on the street. No kidding. I dont know how I forgot to write it in the first comment.

    • Cressida Dicks police always seem to beat up the indigenous British while protecting the muslim filth. They don’t want to be called racist. Seems the leaders side with the terrorists rather than the true people of the UK.

  2. This police behavior is typical of the Covid SWAT teams in the US assembled by the homoglobalist politicians. Remember we should always support the donut eaters no matter how overpaid they are or how big their bloated pensions.

  3. Cops are overpaid jerks , totally uselss when it comes to protecting you and your family from violent felons.
