American University Shuts Down Chinese Govt-Funded Institute on Campus

In a major development on Wednesday (March 17), Massachusetts-based Tufts University in the United States decided to shut down the contentious Confucius Institute from its campus.

As per reports, Tufts University has announced that it will not renew its contract with the Institute after it expires in September this year. The US university had earlier extended its contract in 2019 for a period of 2 years. The Confucius Institute, funded directly by the Communist regime in China (CCP), was started in Tufts in 2015. It was meant to ‘facilitate’ cultural exchange between China and the United States by offering a not-for-credit language programme in Mandarin.

Bombshell: Moderna Chief Medical Officer Admits mRNA Alters DNA

Several prominent physicians, doctors, Sons of Liberty Media Health and Wellness expert Kate Shemirani, her colleague Dr. Kevin Corbett, and I have postulated that the current experimental mRNA injection for coronavirus, aka COVID-19, could alter one’s genetic code or DNA. Bill Gates stated it, which was included in my video “Human Genome 8 and mRNA Vaccine” on Brighteon.com. It is one reason the term “experimental human genome altering mRNA injection” has been used to describe the jab being foisted onto the mostly unsuspecting public. While many in the media, Dr. Anthony Fauci and his merry band of chronic liars, and “fact checkers” have declared this claim as false, a video of a TEDx Beacon Street talk by Tal Zaks, chief medical officer of Moderna, Inc., one pharmaceutical company manufacturer of the experimental mRNA technology injection, confirms mRNA injection for COVID-19 can change your genetic code or DNA. This TEDx Beacon Street talk occurred in 2017. H/T to YouTube channel Silview Media Backup Channel.

Interview With Norman Dodd in Six Parts (Video)

Norman Dodd served as chief investigator in 1953 for the U.S. Congress Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations. He was given access to Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) records and what he discovered was very different from commonly held public perception. Dodd testified to the Reece Committee:

“The trustees of the Foundation (CEIP) brought up a single question. If it is desirable to alter the life of an entire people, is there any means more efficient than war… They discussed this question… for a year and came up with an answer: There are no known means more efficient than war, assuming the objective is altering the life of an entire people. That leads them to a question: How do we involve the United States in a war.”

1.   We will never see sound banking in the United States again
2.   Norman Dodd discusses un-American as effecting change by unconstitutional means
3.   Norman Dodd discusses control over our educational system and merging with the Soviet Union
4.   Is there any means more effective than WAR to alter the course of humanity?
5.   Uncover the fact that this country had been the victim of a conspiracy
6.   Communism represents a means of developing a monopoly

Miami Imam Dr. Fadi Yousef Kablawi: There Can be No Peace, Normalization With the Brothers of Pigs and Apes; Jews Refuse to Convert to Islam; The Pope, Catholics Are Idol Worshipers

Dr. Fadi Yousef Kablawi, the imam of the North Miami Islamic Center, also known as Masjid As-Sunnah An-Nabawiyyah, criticized people who seek peace and normalization with Jews, whom he referred to as “the offspring of apes and pigs” who spread “corruption” upon the land. Imam Kablawi made these remarks as part of a Friday sermon delivered in the mosque and posted on its official Facebook page on March 12, 2021. Dr. Kablawi continued to say that the Muslim Kurds, who issued a stamp featuring the Pope, are seeking honor through the infidels. He elaborated that even Protestant Christians consider the followers of the Catholic Church to be disbelievers, idolaters, and pagans. Dr. Kalbawi lamented that Jews rarely convert to Islam and said that it is the Christians, agnostics, and atheists who have the willingness and tendency to do so. Dr. Kablawi, who is a dentist, immigrated to the United States from Jordan.

What the Times did, as you’ll see below, is similar to countless hit-pieces against Zero Hedge and others; using broad, unsupported brush strokes to slander their ideological opponents. We can only hope this sets new precedent for future defamation cases.

Trust the Science: Peer Reviewed Study Suggested Inflated COVID-19 Fatalities

A peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Science, Public Health Policy & Law last October reveals that the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) disregarded federal laws and regulations in changing how the government counts deaths from COVID, inflating the mortality numbers as a result.

“All federal agencies are required to submit notification for data collection, publication, or analysis to the Federal Register BEFORE gaining approval from the US Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OMB/OIRA) to ensure they are in compliance with the Information Quality Act (IQA) and the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) and therefore, approved to implement the proposed changes,” the authors of the peer-reviewed study said.

Virginia: Restaurateur Who Ignored Mask Mandate Beats Government in Court, Will Keep Doors Open

Judge Ricardo Rigual denied the state’s request to force the immediate and permanent closure of the Gourmeltz restaurant, writing that the state “has failed to clearly demonstrate the factors necessary to grant a temporary injunction,” nor has it demonstrated that Gourmeltz poses any actual threat to the general public. While the case may yet be brought to trial, the restaurant’s doors will stay open in the meantime, dealing a strong blow to the efforts of the Northam Administration’s shutdown agents.

With Biden Barely Aware of His Surroundings, It is Mere Child’s Play to Foist Harris Into the Leadership Role

In what may become the most unexpected and, perhaps, unwanted political comebacks in American political history, U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, who never inspired much confidence on the 2020 presidential campaign trail, may soon find herself, through default, the next president of the United States. Should the world start praying for Joe Biden’s continued good health?

As U.S. President Joe Biden enters the ninth week of his ‘shadow presidency’ without a single press conference under his belt, while uttering absolute nonsense when forced to speak, the possibility of Vice President Kamala Harris assuming the reins of power — exactly as many predicted would happen — is looking more likely with each passing day.

Poland Defeats European Commission in Legal Dispute Over Retail Sales Tax

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) dismissed the European Commission’s appeal on the introduction of the “supermarket tax” in Poland, ending a four-year-long legal battle. The legislation concerning the retail sales tax was passed by Polish Parliament in summer 2016, and it was meant to be introduced on Sept. 1 of that year, but due to appeals from supermarket companies in Poland, it was blocked by the European Commission.

The Commission claimed that the tax constitutes state aid and infringed EU law and issued an appeal to the CJEU. In May 2019, the CJEU rejected the European Commission’s claim and this Tuesday, it upheld that ruling.

The legal process in both instances of the CJEU took over four years. Although the ruling was deemed a success for the Polish government, the income from the tax during the period, estimated to be at least €2.1 million, will not be refunded by the European Commission.

Warp Speed May be Possible With Tremendous Amount of Energy

Authored by Lu Xiao via The Epoch Times

People have long dreamed of traveling to other stars and planets and wandering in the universe with a starship. However, such things only exist in sci-fi, because even the closest star to the sun, Proxima Centauri, is more than four light-years away. This means that even if you could travel at the speed of light, it would take you more than four years to reach the closest star.

To allow the Star Trek characters to quickly reach any part of the universe, Star Trek introduced the concept of “warp speed,” which lets the starships travel faster than light. However, according to Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, it is impossible to go faster than light.

Then is it never possible to use warp drive? Scientists seem to have found a viable solution, at least theoretically.

In a new study, physicist Erik Lentz from Göttingen University in Germany proposed a model for faster-than-light travel, thanks to what he calls a new class of hyper-fast solitons. They are a kind of wave that maintains its shape and energy and can move at a constant faster-than-light velocity.

According to Lentz’s model, these hyper-fast soliton solutions can exist within the framework of general relativity.

With a sufficient energy supply, these solitons can be configured as “warp bubbles” with faster-than-light speeds, thus theoretically enabling an object to travel through spacetime without suffering from extreme tidal forces.

Israeli Jews Petition International Criminal Court, Says Israel’s Mandatory COVID Vaccines Violate Nuremberg Code

Now, a group of Israeli Jews are suing the Netanyahu administration in international court, making the case that Israel is violating the Nuremberg Code by essentially making Israelis subject to a medical experiment using the controversial vaccines.

Hindu Journalist Shot Dead in Pakistan’s Sindh by Suspected Islamists

Pakistan’s Hindu journalist Ajay Lalwani became a victim to a few politicians and bureaucrats-backed Jihadi militants who shot him in cold blood while he was sitting in a barber shop. Lalwani was active to expose forced conversion and marriage of Hindu girls of minor age by Islamic clerics.

Shivani Kohli | HENB | Karachi | March 20, 2021:: Again a Hindu minority in Pakistan brutally killed by the Islamists in the broad day light. Pakistan’s Hindu journalist Ajay Lalwani became an alleged victim to a few politicians and bureaucrats-backed Jihadi militants who shot him in cold blood while he was sitting in a hair-cutting saloon.

The incident took place late on March 17 when a few unidentified gunmen came to the barber shop in Salahpat, near Sukkur in Sindh province of Pakistan and sprayed him with bullets. Ajay Lalwani who received multiple shots on his legs, stomach, and arms was rushed to the Civil Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries the next day.

In protest of the killing of Ajay Lalwani, the journalist union of Sukkur took out a protest march in the city on Saturday and demanded security for the journalists working in the locality. They also raised a question mark on the alleged inaction of Sukkur police for allegedly shielding a few politicians whom the late Ajay Lalwani had exposed in recent past.

A source in Sukkur informed that late Ajay was considered a ‘bold’ journalist and had exposed several scams and cases involving politicians.

“He was working on a story on the hand of a local politician and a few bureaucrats behind a few Islamic clerics who convert Hindu girls into Islam, he had also exposed the hand of a few politicians behind the abduction of the Hindu girls which probably became the reason of attack on him” said the source…

Mansoor Ali fired several shots in the air with a rifle at one of the entrances to the diplomatic enclave of Islamabad in an attempt to bypass the security of the premises and attack the French embassy, a police officer, who asked not to be named, told EFE.

Ali’s attempt to attack the embassy was foiled and he was immediately arrested, the source added.

Uttar Pradesh: Afzal Becomes Rajiv to Marry Hindu Woman, Tries to Burn Her Alive With Children for Refusing to Convert

In Uttar Pradesh, yet another case of alleged grooming Jihad has surfaced wherein a Muslim man assumed a fake Hindu identity to entrap and marry a Hindu woman. The case pertains to state capital Lucknow where a man named Afzal allegedly identified himself as Rajiv and married a Hindu woman in the Arya Samaj Temple.

A few years after the marriage, the accused Afzal started pressuring his wife to give up her religion and embrace Islam. When the woman refused to abandon her religion for Islam, an enraged Afzal reportedly tried to burn her down, along with their children. However, the woman somehow managed to escape the fire and rushed to the nearby police station to file a complaint against the accused. Following her complaint, the police arrested the accused and slapped a case against him under the UP Anti-Conversion law.

As Microsoft Alleges Its Mail Servers Were Hacked by China-Sponsored Hackers, A Brief Look Into Various Chinese Cyber-Espionage Groups

Just a few days ago, Microsoft reported a cyberattack on its mail server software. Microsoft has since then come forward to claim that a Chinese cyber-espionage group was responsible for this. According to Microsoft’s Threat Intelligence Centre, the cyber-group named Hafnium was responsible for the attack on Microsoft. Hafnium has previously been accused of both being sponsored by China and operating out of the country. Microsoft claims that its conclusion is based upon “observed victimology, tactics and procedures”.

In recent years, China has successfully established itself as one of the world’s foremost forces in terms of cyber power. A 2020 report titled the “National Cyber Power Index 2020” published by Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University, ranks China as 2nd in the world in terms of cyber power, only behind the United States. This index measures a multitude of factors including government strategies, capabilities for defence and offence, resource allocation, the private sector, workforce, and innovation. Therefore, as far as cyber-attacks go, China is more than capable of facilitating such cyber operations.

China has long been suspected of funding and facilitating malicious cyber groups which engage in cybercrimes. Here are only some of the most notorious cyber groups which are either suspected or confirmed to be Chinese-backed.

Swedish Government Proposed Relief for Afghan Migrants in High School

The Swedish government is currently submitting a proposal for relief in the law on the so-called upper secondary education, which would give mainly unaccompanied Afghan migrants the opportunity for a permanent residence permit even though they have no grounds for obtaining asylum.

Previously, unaccompanied minors would have to get a job within six months after completing upper secondary education to obtain a residence permit. Due to the difficult situation in the labor market, resulting from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the government wants to extend that period to one year, according to a report from Nyheter Idag.

Cancel Culture, Part 1

This last year has seen so many real idiots expose their uneducated stupidity. What is called a cancel culture is only a group of people that are not capable of handling reality. Thank you, liberal indoctrination. We have all heard that if we do not learn from history, we will be destined to repeat it. I am positive that we have not learned from history simply because the liberal indoctrination does not teach history. Our elementary schools don’t teach either American or world history. Middle and Senior High schools don’t teach it either. Colleges teach secular humanism and trash everything American. So, I guess you can’t be too hard on the kids that know nothing of our history when it was never taught to them. We can however blame those who call themselves ‘teachers’ for refusing to teach the truth about the greatest nation in the world, America.

All students should be familiar with the history of their country. Not the revisionist garbage that they teach in our public schools but the real history. The sacrifices that the Founders made many of which were great, the dedication to individual freedom they subscribed to, the moral base that they lived by personally, in business, and specifically in the politics of their day, and the foundation that all of this was built on, the Christian faith in Jesus Christ. Noah Webster stated “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.”

  1. I do not know how true this remark is, today I read it on the Russian-language twitter:

    A friend living as a migrant in Germany asked to go to a bookstore to find out how much “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” would cost. There was not even a shelf with journalism and philosophy … a nightmare.

    • A German would search one of the online booksellers for the title/edition. Then, if they want to order from the local seller — hopefully a local bookstore still exists. Most of these are customers/members of a big book distributor (Libris and such) that will deliver to the store within one day or so.

      Prices of new German books are (still) fixed in Germany; so it makes no difference in price, where you buy, except perhaps postage.

  2. Re: Warp speed may be possible with tremendous amunts of energy:-

    There was a young spaceman called Bright,
    Whose ship travelled faster than light.
    He set out one day
    In a relative way
    And returned on the previous night.

  3. If the Greek coast guard truly did zip tie the hands together of a bunch of invaders and unceremoniously kick them back into the Aegean to drown then they deserve a medal, some cases of ouzo, and more zip ties.

    As for the Bulgarians beating and robbing a small horde of orc invaders before ejecting them back across the border, good news seems to be turning up in all kinds of unexpected places.

    Now if only there was news of the simultaneous sinking by limpet mine of every orc ferry in the Mediterranean…

    • From what I am hearing is that there is a lot more things being done to these 3rd world invaders that nobody is talking about for fear that it will explode into more nasty things being done to get rid of them.
