Biden: Naked Socialism/Technocracy for America; The Great Land Theft

We are living in the middle of a giant scam: “Reduce energy use, in order to cut CO2 emissions and save the planet.”

Here is the next chapter in that scam:

On January 27, 2021, the White House published Joe Biden’s Executive Order 14008, “Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad.”

Bolshevik Bernie on the Verge of Total Power

Bolshevik Bernie Sanders, the lone Senate member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, is poised to take over the Democratic Party, after his supporters and sympathizers engineer the ouster of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and President Joe Biden. Sanders’ socialist “dream” is about to come true.

The open Marxists on the verge of a complete takeover of the Democratic Party are true globalists, linked to the international socialist and communist movements.

Conservatives think the demise of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in response to allegations that he told dirty jokes and played touchy-feely with feminist staffers, is a good thing. But the attacks on Cuomo are designed to set the stage for President Kamala Harris. After all, Joe Biden has his own accuser, a woman named Tara Reade, in addition to the fondling and sniffing of children and women’s hair he has already engaged in. What’s more, he’s not in good mental or physical shape anyway.

California City Bans New Gasoline Stations

The City Council of Petaluma, California, has voted to ban new gasoline stations in order to reduce gasoline availability to motorists and accelerate the transition to electric vehicles. The ban does not include existing gas stations, but existing gas stations will not be allowed to add new gas pumps. Instead, they are encouraged to build electric charging bays. The legislation will also streamline the process for adding more electric vehicle infrastructure like electric charging bays and hydrogen fuel cell facilities. The new prohibition is part of Petaluma’s plan to completely phase out carbon emissions by 2030. Petaluma, located 30 miles north of San Francisco, has about 60,000 people. It is 15 square miles in size and has 16 operational gas stations. Neighborhood opposition in Petaluma to a new Safeway gas station prompted years of litigation and promoted the permanent ban on new stations.

Chauvin Judge Slams Minneapolis’ $27m Settlement With Floyd Family, Calls Timing “Unfortunate”

Potential jurors have expressed concerns about protesters mobbing their homes and threatening their loved ones depending on the verdict, which has made picking a jury of 12 unbiased individuals exceedingly difficult in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, who is facing Murder 2 & Murder 3 charges, along with a manslaughter charge, over the killing of George Floyd.

And after the City of Minneapolis last week agreed to a historic $27M settlement with the family of George Floyd, Judge Peter Cahill of the Hennepin County District Court has admonished the city over the timing of the settlement, calling it “unfortunate”. The judge said he would need to recall the 7 jurors seated in the trial to ask if they saw the news of the settlement.

COVID-19 Vaccines Are Weapons of Mass Destruction — and Could Wipe Out the Human Race (Video)

by Dr Vernon Coleman

Transcript:

If you have been reading my articles for a while you will know that I never exaggerate. You will also know that for the last year my predictions, assessments and interpretations have been absolutely accurate.

Now, more than ever I need your help. Unless we work together we are doomed. I need your help because we need to reach millions with this article. And with the big platforms and the mainstream media having banned me I cannot reach those millions without you.

I believe this is the most important article you will ever read. You have to share it. You have to do nothing for the next few days but send this article to everyone you know or don’t know who has an email address. And send it to every journalist whose email address you can find. You can send it easily from www.vernoncoleman.org

Do you remember that video in which Bill and Melinda Gates sat and smirked as they talked about how the next pandemic would make people sit up and take notice?

Well, I think I know what is going to happen. We all know that the evil elite, the Agenda 21 and Great Reset promoters, have all along intended to kill between 90% and 95% of the world’s population.

Sadly, I fear it is probably too late to save many of those who have had the vaccine. Millions are doomed and I fear that many will die when they next come into contact with the coronavirus.

But something has gone seriously wrong with the plans of the elite.

And the result is that now those of us who haven’t had the vaccine also appear to be in serious danger.

[Comment: Highly recommended reading or watching. Same video on brighteon: www.brighteon.com/0df28628-3b9b-42a3-a4c9-5bec480e8335]

COVID Shot: Rising Deaths, Serious Injury, Spontaneous Miscarriages and Stillbirths

States must stop distributing any of the COVID vaccines.

In my February 8, 2021 column, COVID-19: Request Investigation at State Legislatures Health/Science Committees, I requested, as well as dozens of concerned individuals who signed onto my letter, that committee do two things. We the People must know the truth regarding the actual existence of this ‘novel’ COVID-19 coronavirus and second, the actual number of cases and deaths.

In that column I explained what exhibits would be included in the package I had prepared for members on that committee. Our Howard County GOP Club paid for those packages to go certified mail to all six selected committee members. So far, only three of the green signature cards have come back. As soon as the other three come back, I will calendar for two weeks and then we start making calls to their offices.

Follow up is absolutely critical. I wish I had the same option as when I lived in Sacramento less than ten minutes from the state capitol, but not so now. It’s a six-hour drive to Austin.But for those who do live close to your state capitols, you, friends and family can follow up in person.

Facebook Global Planning Lead: “The Government Needs to Step in and Break Up Google and Facebook”

In a series of undercover recordings that were published by investigative reporting outlet Project Veritas, Facebook’s Global Planning Lead, Benny Thomas, said that Facebook and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, are too powerful, called for the government to intervene, and warned of dire future consequences if the government fails to take action against the tech giants.

“The government needs to step in and break up Google and Facebook,” told an undercover Project Veritas journalist in the video. “I’ll make less money but it’s a better thing for the world.”

FBI: Nashville Bomber Driven by Conspiracies, Paranoia

The FBI concluded that the bomber chose the location and timing so that it would be impactful while still minimizing the likelihood of ‘undue injury.’

The man who blew himself up inside his recreational vehicle in a Christmas Day bombing in Nashville was grappling with paranoia and eccentric conspiracy theories, but there are no indications he was motivated by social or political ideology, the FBI said Monday in closing out the investigation into the blast.

The FBI statement sets out to resolve some of the lingering mysteries of an explosion that initially perplexed investigators and the public because it appeared to lack an obvious motive or fit a clear profile. Though the blast damaged dozens of buildings, it took place early on a holiday morning well before downtown streets would be bustling with activity and was preceded by a recorded announcement warning anyone in the area that a bomb would soon detonate.

The FBI concluded that the bomber, Anthony Quinn Warner, chose the location and timing so that it would be impactful while still minimizing the likelihood of “undue injury.”

The report found that Warner acted alone and set off the bomb to end his own life, driven in part by his longtime beliefs in several conspiracy theories and paranoia. The report also found that stressors included “deteriorating interpersonal relationships.”

“The FBI’s analysis did not reveal indications of a broader ideological motive to use violence to bring about social or political change, nor does it reveal indications of a specific personal grievance focused on individuals or entities in and around the location of the explosion,” the FBI said…

Google Will Face Lawsuit Over Incognito Mode Tracking (Updated)

Google now has no choice but to deal with a lawsuit over Incognito mode tracking. As Bloomberg reports, Judge Lucy Koh has denied Google’s request to dismiss the class action case. Koh determined that Google “did not notify” users it was still collecting data while Incognito’s privacy mode was active, giving the plaintiffs enough ground to move forward with their case.

The chief participants in the lawsuit had accused Google of misleading users, telling them their info was private even as it monitored their habits. The search giant had argued that users agreed to its privacy policy and thus knew Google was collecting data. It reportedly warned that Incognito “does not mean ‘invisible’“ and that sites could still see activity.

Kentucky Republicans Pass Bill Making Insulting a Police Officer a Crime

In recent times, there have been increasing incidences of police arresting people for criticizing them online, particularly through memes. Due to the First Amendment protections, these cases have been dropped.

But a new bill out of Kentucky aims to try again.

The Senate of the State of Kentucky passed a bill that criminalizes insulting the police. Critics of the bill claimed the legislation would have a chilling effect on free speech and is actually a violation of the First Amendment.

‘Obey!’ — Biden Outlines Post-Pandemic Dystopia in “Dark & Hopeless” First Address

President Joe Biden delivered his first prime-time address last night since the beginning of his ‘unity’reign.

However, out of the gate, he took a shot at his predecessor, seemingly blaming Trump for the spread of COVID-19.

“A year ago, we were hit with a virus that was met with silence and spread unchecked,” Biden said, apparently forgetting that he called then-President Trump xenophobic for quickly imposing a ban on travel into the United States.

Such assertions were to be expected, but as LibertyNation’s Graham Noble warns, one sentence from Biden’s speech should terrify Americans:

“We will issue further guidance on what you can and cannot do once fully vaccinated.”

Not the CDC, not the science, but the government will tell you what you can and cannot do if you’re not willing to be Big Pharma’s guinea pigs. And that message was clear as the rest of the speech was basically variation of the theme:

“please, please, please, get vaccinated because it is your duty as Americans,”

Simply put, “obey” America and some of those freedoms your founders bequeathed unto you will be returned…

Pennsylvania Mom Arrested for Trying to Ruin Young Girls’ Lives With Compromising Deepfakes

The internet is a growing battlefield by which activists and bad actors set out to destroy the careers of others. This latest example involves the emerging world of deepfakes.

Police in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, arrested a 50-year-old woman for sending doctored images and videos of members of her teen daughter’s cheerleading squad to coaches, hoping they would get kicked out.

The investigation started last July after one of the cheerleaders’ parents contacted the police. Later, two more families reported a similar story. The teenagers claimed that they and their coaches had received messages showing them naked, smoking, and drinking, reported the Philly Inquirer.

Upon further investigation, the police determined that the videos were deepfakes.

Seattle Police Arrest 13 in Weekend Protests

SEATTLE — Seattle police arrested 13 people Saturday night after a march downtown turned destructive. The arrests were for property damage, obstructing a public officer and felony assault, police said Sunday.

The march was planned to mark the one year anniversary of the death of Breonna Taylor, a Black woman who was shot and killed by police during a botched drug raid at her Louisville, Kentucky home, KING5 reported.

During the march, police said members of the group pulled barricades, fencing, and cones out of a construction zone on Alaskan Way, blocking traffic in several lanes. The Washington State Patrol had to temporarily close the ferry terminal until the marchers cleared the area, police said.

Suspects Accused of Toppling a Statue and Hitting a Cop on Head With Bottle Indicted by Portland Grand Jury

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office has announced that two accused rioters connected to violent Black Lives Matter-Antifa protests in Portland, Ore. have been indicted.

A grand jury last week indicted Minira Snead-Alsaud, 20, and Brandon Paul Bartells, 38.

Snead-Alsaud was indicted on charges of felony rioting and attempted assault of a public safety officer. On May 30, 2020, Snead-Alsaud was allegedly part of a mob of BLM-Antifa rioters who vandalized and looted downtown businesses for approximately five hours. She is accused of trying to incite others to violence, assaulting police officers, and specifically, striking a deputy on the head with a bottle.

Snead-Alsaud was originally arrested at the time alongside with almost 50 others but she was quickly released without bail. The case was closed in August 2020 but was reinstated this year after law enforcement provided additional evidence to the district attorney’s office.

Bartells, a far-left activist from Ocean Shores, Wash., who was also arrested at a riot in Kenosha, Wisc., was indicted on felony riot and felony criminal mischief charges.

Texas Continues Downward Trend of COVID Cases, Hospitalizations, And Deaths Following Repeal of Mask Mandate

Texas Governor Greg Abbott repealed his state’s mask mandate last week, sparking a flurry of controversy from those who said it was needlessly risking the lives of Texans by opening the state up to a resurgence in coronavirus cases.

President Joe Biden reacted angrily to the decision, suggesting that it represented “Neanderthal thinking.”

Since that time, however, data shows that cases, hospitalizations, and deaths associated with COVID-19 have all continued to decrease in the Lone Star State. On Sunday, there were just over 2,300 new confirmed and probable cases of the virus, and hospitalizations were down to almost 4,000. Additionally, only 69 COVID-related deaths were added to the state’s total.

The Occupation of America

Friends and collogues have asked me why I have stopped writing articles related to Islam and its perpetual threat to the United States of America. My answer is simple. America has a much bigger problem than Islam.

For decades, the Democrat Party has shown by both words and deeds that they despise the U.S. Constitution while they bend over backwards to embrace Islamists, illegal aliens, and anyone who hates America and feels entitled. The left is interested only in power — even if it means sacrificing our safety and security. The current Democrat Party has declared war on traditional American values and is imposing their socialist betrayal in every area of our lives.

These ‘Inactive’ Ingredients in COVID Vaccines Could Trigger Allergic Reactions

COVID vaccine makers have not only introduced new primary ingredients to the U.S. vaccine stage, but they’ve bundled these new ingredients with “inactive” ingredients in unprecedented ways that raise the risk for dangerous allergic reactions.

Studies of licensed vaccines have identified many problems with these secondary ingredients — adjuvants like aluminum, preservatives like thimerosal and stabilizers like gelatin — not to mention highlighting the presence in vaccines of residual DNA from cell lines used in the manufacturing process as well as disclosed and undisclosed contaminants.

With the advent of three experimental COVID injections approved for emergency use in the U.S., manufacturers have introduced new primary ingredients to the U.S. vaccine stage — messenger RNA (mRNA) in the Pfizer and Moderna injections and an adenovirus vector in the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) injection.

Not only that, but vaccine makers have bundled these new primary ingredients with “inactive” excipients in unprecedented ways — polyethylene glycol (PEG) in the case of the mRNA vaccines and polysorbate 80 in the J&J shot.

Trump Issues Response to WaPo Election Call Hoax; Democrats Cited ‘Find the Fraud’ In Impeachment Brief

Update 1918ET: Former President Trump has issued a response after the Washington Post admitted to publishing a report falsely accusing him of pressuring a Georgia official to ‘find the fraud,’ — a statement which was debunked by audio of the call, but not before it spread through left-wing MSM echo chambers like wildfire.

The Washington Post just issued a correction as to the contents of the incorrectly reported phone call I had with respect to voter fraud in the Great State of Georgia. While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non— story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning. I would further appreciate a strong investigation into Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacey Abrams political machine strong investigation into Fulton County, Georgia, and the Stacey Abrams political machine which, I believe, would totally change the course of the presidential election in Georgia.

US Soldier Pleads Not Guilty to Plotting Attacks on NYC Landmarks With Islamic State

NEW YORK — A U.S. Army soldier pleaded not guilty Monday to plotting terrorist attacks on city landmarks with an undercover FBI employee posing as a member of the Islamic State militant group.

Cole Bridges faces a maximum of 40 years in prison for attempting to provide material support to Islamic State and attempted murder of U.S. military service members. Prosecutors say Bridges, 20, shared his disenchantment with the military in online chats with the undercover FBI employee starting in 2019. The radicalized soldier eventually began advising the fake Islamic State sympathizer on how to thwart U.S. military attacks in the Middle East and “provided advice” on potential targets in New York City, including the 9/11 Memorial, according to a complaint.

Video: Fauci and Chuck Todd Say More Pandemics Coming Because of Climate Change

Appearing on NBC News Sunday Dr Fauci and host Chuck Todd declared that more pandemics are on the way because of climate change and “the globalisation”.

The pair also agreed that a ‘global health security network’ is needed going forward and that anyone planning to go back to their pre-pandemic life is being too hasty.

“I know there’s a lot of folks who think that due to climate change and due to the globalization in general, it’s inevitable, we’re going to deal with more and more viruses like this,” Todd declared.

Fauci responded “Let’s take global to begin with. We have to have a better global health security network of interconnectivity, of communication, of transparency.”

Montreal Police Continue Curfew Enforcement Following Religious Challenge, Lockdown Protest

Police in Montreal, Quebec continue to enforce the curfew enacted by Premier Francois Legault despite growing resistance to the province’s strict measures against COVID-19.

The curfew, first imposed in early January and originally only slated to last four weeks, is among the tightest limitations on Canadians in any province. Though some restrictions were eventually lifted, the curfew was left in place by Legault. Now, with daylight savings time coming into effect, Montreal’s Hasidic Jewish community has challenged the premier’s order.

Orthodox Jews must hold evening prayers after dark, and the changing of clocks will see those in the province’s “red zones” leaving places of worship in contravention to the 8 p.m. curfew.

Meanwhile, on Saturday in the city, thousands of protesters took to the streets to rally against the province’s lockdown measures. Police said they made 10 arrests and issued 144 tickets to demonstrators, mostly for individuals not wearing masks.

Brexit Wars Recommence as EU Launches Legal Action Against UK Over Northern Ireland

The European Union is launching legal action against the United Kingdom over its efforts to protect trade between the British mainland and Northern Ireland, vindicating critics of Boris Johnson’s deals with the bloc who said they ensured Brexit was by no means “done”.

The terms Prime Minister Johnson agreed with the bloc on Northern Ireland were particularly onerous, with Northern Ireland, or Ulster, being left within the regulatory domain of the EU, and a partial customs border between the British province and England, Scotland, and Wales being imposed.

Denmark Bans Foreign Funding of Mosques

The Danish Parliament has approved a new law that bans foreign governments from financing mosques in Denmark. The measure is aimed at preventing Muslim countries, particularly Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, from promoting Islamic extremism in Danish mosques and prayer facilities.

Denmark joins a growing list of European countries — including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland — which have taken varying degrees of action to prevent foreign governments from financing the construction and upkeep of mosques on their territories.

In recent years, Algeria, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, among others, have distributed hundreds of millions of euros to finance the spread of Islam in Europe.

Hungarian Journalists Could Face ‘Ban’ Under Radical Proposal From Far-Left Leader

In an ominous statement by the leader of the far-left Hungarian political party Momentum, Andras Fekete-Gyor, said that in case his bid to become prime minister were successful, he would effectively ban journalists whom he deems to be “propagandists”.

Although in his video message he did not single out the Hungarian conservative media as such, both media outlets he mentions by name are center-right conservative news agencies.

In a video message to his followers, Fekete-Gyor states that “… in this opinion I am more radical than the majority, and those propagandists, and I speak of propagandists, such as those in TV2 or those in Origo, who deliberately defame others, are deliberately stating falsehoods, then I would ban them for some time from their occupation.”

Italy Launches Manslaughter Probe Into Death of Teacher, 57, Who Died a Day After Being Given AstraZeneca Vaccine as Country Re-Enters Lockdown and EU Turns Its Back on the Jab

Italian prosecutors have opened a manslaughter investigation today after a music teacher died on Sunday — a day after receiving AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine.

The judiciary in Biella, in northern Italy, opened a preliminary probe into the death of 57-year-old Sandro Tognatti, whose cause of death remains unknown. They stressed that there is no link to AstraZeneca’s vaccine at this stage and the probe is intended to establish whether anyone has a case to answer.

It came as Italians woke up to fresh lockdown restrictions today, with 13 of the country’s 21 regions now in a ‘red zone’ meaning schools, restaurants, shops and museums have to close, and people cannot leave their homes except for work, health or other essential reasons.

Metal Found in Car Exhausts Worth 20 Times That of Gold Sparking Surge of Thefts Across the UK

A METAL found in car exhausts is now worth 20 times that of gold — sparking a surge of thefts across the UK.

Rhodium, which is used in catalytic converters, has shot up in value from £750 an ounce in 2014 to about £20,000 today.

Palladium, another metal found in the devices, is £1,688 an ounce — making them both pricier than gold, which sells for £1,230 an ounce.

And thieves can earn themselves £450 for every converter they steal — with gangs now raking in millions each year.

UK: We Can’t Allow Debate Surrounding Death of Sarah Everard to ‘Turn Into Attacks on Men’, Says Farage

Brexit leader Nigel Farage has drawn a “parallel” between the Black Lives Matter protests and the discussions related to the apparent murder of Sarah Everard, in that while the former brands all white people as beneficiaries of “white privilege”, the latter is in danger of leading to the stigmatisation of all men as dangerous.

Mr Farage told supporters on Sunday: “Following that BLM uprising, we’ve now had month after month of white people being told they are guilty. Those of us that are white, we have ‘white privilege’, and some of this nonsense is being taught in our schools. It isn’t healing any racial divides. All it is actually doing is dividing black and white people, and [it is] hugely counterproductive.

Von Der Leyen Would’ve Lost Her Job Over Vaccine Fiasco if She Wasn’t German, Says Polish Expert

Austria and Denmark will be cooperating with Israel when it comes to vaccines. Italy will produce the Russian Sputnik V vaccine and Hungary is taking its own path and is vaccinating its citizens with Chinese and Russian doses.

The OSW Center for Eastern Studies expert Konrad Poplawski explained that Austria and Hungary’s actions are a serious argument in favor of a Europe of Fatherlands, as the EU has started to take responsibility for matters in which it has no competencies. The vaccine fiasco shows that people without expert knowledge dealt with the matter while on the other side there were the experienced negotiators of pharmaceutical companies.

Operation Vaxx-All Deplorables: Codename; “Satan’s Poker”

What’s going on in Israel? Has anyone figured it out yet?

Isn’t Israel the most vaccinated country in the world?

It is.

Haven’t half of all Israelis already been vaccinated?

Yes, they have.

Haven’t 90% of all Israelis over 60 (the age-group most likely to die from Covid) already been vaccinated?

Yes.

Then how did “Israel manage to double the number of deaths it accumulated in the prior ten months of the pandemic”…”within two months of intensive inoculation with the Pfizer vaccine”?

And, why did “Israel’s Covid-19 cases… spike sharply during the first month of the … mass vaccination campaign.”?

And, why “after just 2 months of … mass vaccination” are “76% of new Covid-19 cases. under 39. Only 5.5% are over 60. 40% of critical patients are under 60.”?

Did the vaccinations shift the direction of the infection to a different demographic or have the vaccines created a more virulent strain of the virus that targets younger people?

And, why have more pregnant women suddenly entered “critical care” while Covid-19 cases among infants have soared by whopping “1,300%? (from 400 cases in under two-year-olds on November 20 to 5,800 in February 2021).”

And, why have Orthodox Jews and the Israeli Arabs experienced a sudden and dramatic shift in cases and fatalities when both groups had similar numbers prior to the vaccination campaign? Here is an excerpt from an interview with journalist Gilad Atzmon who explains what’s actually happened: (See the entire interview at The Unz Review — Go to 20 minute-mark)

[…]

They tell us two things:

They tell us that the media is spreading disinformation about Israel’s fictitious success in fighting Covid-19. They tell us that the vaccinations created a new strain of the infection that may be more contagious and more lethal than the original.

Here’s how Atzmon summed it up:

“The evidence collected in Israel points at a close correlation between mass vaccination, cases and deaths. This correlation points at the possibility that it is the vaccinated who actually spread the virus or even a range of mutants that are responsible for the radical shift in symptoms above.” (“Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla Admits Israel Is the ‘World’s Lab.’“, Gilad Atzmon, The Unz Review)

[…]

Is Dr. Vanden Bossche right? Is our “extensive and erroneous human intervention” (the vaccines) “going to wipe out large parts of our human population”? Have these vaccines turned “a relatively harmless virus into a bioweapon of mass destruction?” Have the “current COVID-19 vaccines”… “increasingly turn vaccine recipients into asymptomatic carriers who are shedding virus”?? Are we now facing the biggest and most deadly public health disaster in history?

We believe he is right. We also believe that the alarming data that Atzmon helped to uncover, is just the tip of the iceberg. We think this insidious vaccination Frankenstein is going to trigger an avalanche of late-developing diseases and mental afflictions that will plague the world for the next century or so. And, no, we do not accept that this bloody assault on humanity is accidental. Quite the contrary. The only reason that toxic injections — would be put into service without having undergone long-term trials (to determine their safety), would be if mass vaccination factored large in the political agenda of the perpetrators. And that is precisely why the dissembling media has deliberately ramped up the public hysteria to fever pitch just before the campaign was launched. The obvious goal was to make the population as submissive as possible before herding them into inoculation. All of this suggests that the global vaccination campaign is a premeditated criminal operation designed to advance the agenda of elites. Here’s more from Atzmon:

The Vaccine Works: Only 8% of Those Hospitalized Have Been Vaccinated

The death toll in Israel from the COVID-19 pandemic topped 6,000 on Sunday night and now stands at 6,008 people.

Despite this sad milestone, the data from recent days show that the vaccines have had a dramatic effect and greatly help in reducing the number of cases.

According to a report in Channel 12 News, out of 1,003 patients who are hospitalized, 74% or 751 people have not been vaccinated. Even among those who were vaccinated, the majority did not complete the two doses of the vaccine. Only 8% of all hospitalized patients, 83 people, became ill after completing both doses…

Clubhouse Gets Banned in Oman

Chat app Clubhouse is no longer available in Oman. The government claims the ban is due to a lack of license, but activists believe it is censorship.

Speaking to news website WAF, the Omani telecoms regulator said the app was blocked for “lack of proper authorization.”

“Similar communication applications must obtain a permit from the authority,” the Omani Telecommunications Regulatory Authority said. An article on WAF says the Omani government “prohibits the use of several encrypted VOIP applications without an official license.” That’s the case in several other countries in the Gulf.

Activists believe the blocking of Clubhouse has nothing to do with licensing; it is the government blocking an app where citizens can freely discuss controversial political topics.

Private Messaging Apps

You can’t be sure about your data’s security or the communication you are engaging in over online channels, especially messaging apps. There are such apps out there that will share your personal communication data with third-party systems in a heartbeat.

You can’t ever be secure with big tech messaging apps, nor can you keep unintended people from listening in or intervening in your private conversations — either for nefarious purposes, data harvesting, or more.

Companies and governments tend to spy on people for their own political or financial gains; hackers are always trying to manipulate your information to find loopholes and to do you harm. Unless you are using a secure messaging app with better security, encryption, and other advanced features that can better cover you when online, you can never be sure that your right to privacy isn’t being violated.

Using one of these apps listed below will be a major step in boosting your messaging privacy. Be sure to encourage your friends and family to use them too.

  1. I quite enjoy the culture wars section, and I wonder what comes next?

    The west has clearly been subverted from within, and so far noone has really attacked, but I bet that one day the people will wake up from the illusion and at the moment the political course of action will change direction back right again – I believe that whoever’s behind this will have to attack militarily.

    “Don’t interrupt your enemy when he’s doing a mistake!”

    I predict that as far as we are dismantling militaries under the guidance of “wokeness”, we are safe from foreign enemies, but what comes after that will be quite nasty.
