Hungary: Kopint-Tarki Raises GDP Forecast to 4.5% in 2021

Economic research institute Kopint-Tarki on Wednesday raised its forecast for Hungary’s economic growth in 2021 to 4.5 percent from its December projection of 3.5 percent.

Éva Palócz, the think tank’s head, said economic growth in 2021 will partly result from a base effect, with a rebound of around 10 percent expected in the second quarter.

In 2022, Kopint-Tarki forecasts GDP growth of 4.5 percent.

Anti-Free Speech Muslim Group Sues Facebook for Not Removing Sites Opposing Jihad Violence

The tech site Engadget reported Thursday that the far-left legal group Muslim Advocates has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against Facebook for allowing “anti-Muslim hate to spread on the platform, leading to real-world harm.” The organization provided a list of what it claimed were 26 “anti-Muslim hate groups,” including organizations that are dedicated simply to opposing jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others, including my own news site Jihad Watch, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, the Center for Security Policy, and other groups whose main crime is opposing leftist Islamopandering and the left’s tendency to turn a blind eye to the human rights abuses sanctioned by Islamic law.

Biden Creates Federal Commission to Study SCOTUS Reform

President Joe Biden created a federal commission on Friday to conduct a six-month study on proposed changes to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The Commission’s purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals,” the White House said in a statement on Friday.

“The topics it will examine include the genesis of the reform debate; the Court’s role in the Constitutional system; the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court; the membership and size of the Court; and the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices.”

Biden’s ATF Pick Defended Waco Massacre by Falsely Claiming Branh Davidians Shot Down Helicopters

David Chipman, Biden’s gun-grabbing pick to lead the ATF, defended the massacre at Waco in an AMA post on Reddit, by falsely claiming that Branch Davidians shot down helicopters.

Chipman, who served in the ATF for 25 years as a special agent, and currently works as a senior policy advisor for the anti-Second Amendment group Giffords, was nominated by Biden to lead the agency as the director. In 2019, Chipman made an “Ask Me Anything” post on Reddit in 2019. When Redditors posed Chipman hard questions, such as asking him if there was any actual hard evidence that firearms proliferation among normal citizens was an actual causal factor in gun violence, Chipman resorted to flat out lies.

Could mRNA Vaccines Permanently Alter DNA? Recent Science Suggests They Might.

A December preprint about SARS-CoV-2, by scientists at Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), produced findings about wild coronavirus that raise questions about how viral RNA operates.

The scientists conducted the analysis because they were “puzzled by the fact that there is a respectable number of people who are testing positive for COVID-19 by PCR long after the infection was gone.”

Their key findings were as follows: SARS-CoV-2 RNAs “can be reverse transcribed in human cells,” “these DNA sequences can be integrated into the cell genome and subsequently be transcribed” (a phenomenon called “retro-integration”) — and there are viable cellular pathways to explain how this happens.

According to Ph.D. biochemist and molecular biologist Dr. Doug Corrigan, these important findings (which run contrary to “current biological dogma”) belong to the category of “Things We Were Absolutely and Unequivocally Certain Couldn’t Happen Which Actually Happened.”

The findings of the Harvard and MIT researchers also put the CDC’s assumptions about mRNA vaccines on shakier ground, according to Corrigan. In fact, a month before the Harvard-MIT preprint appeared, Corrigan had already written a blog outlining possible mechanisms and pathways whereby mRNA vaccines could produce the identical phenomenon.

In a second blog post, written after the preprint came out, Corrigan emphasized that the Harvard-MIT findings about coronavirus RNA have major implications for mRNA vaccines — a fact he describes as “the big elephant in the room.” While not claiming that vaccine RNA will necessarily behave in the same way as coronavirus RNA — that is, permanently altering genomic DNA — Corrigan believes that the possibility exists and deserves close scrutiny.

Former Pfizer VP: ‘Your Government is Lying to You in a Way That Could Lead to Your Death.’

‘Look out the window, and think, “why is my government lying to me about something so fundamental?” Because, I think the answer is, they are going to kill you using this method. They’re going to kill you and your family.’

Dr. Michael Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory who spent 32 years in the industry leading new medicines research and retired from the pharmaceutical giant with “the most senior research position” in his field, spoke with LifeSiteNews.

He addressed the “demonstrably false” propaganda from governments in response to COVID-19, including the “lie” of dangerous variants, the totalitarian potential for “vaccine passports,” and the strong possibility we are dealing with a “conspiracy” which could lead to something far beyond the carnage experienced in the wars and massacres of the 20th century.

His main points included:

There is “no possibility” current variants of COVID-19 will escape immunity. It is “just a lie.”

Yet, governments around the world are repeating this lie, indicating that we are witnessing not just “convergent opportunism,” but a “conspiracy.” Meanwhile media outlets and Big Tech platforms are committed to the same propaganda and the censorship of the truth.

Pharmaceutical companies have already begun to develop unneeded “top-up” (“booster”) vaccines for the “variants.” The companies are planning to manufacture billions of vials, in addition to the current experimental COVID-19 “vaccine” campaign.

Regulatory agencies like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency, have announced that since these “top-up” vaccines will be so similar to the prior injections which were approved for emergency use authorization, drug companies will not be required to “perform any clinical safety studies.”

Thus, this virtually means that design and implementation of repeated and coerced mRNA vaccines “go from the computer screen of a pharmaceutical company into the arms of hundreds of millions of people, [injecting] some superfluous genetic sequence for which there is absolutely no need or justification.”

Why are they doing this? Since no benign reason is apparent, the use of vaccine passports along with a “banking reset” could issue in a totalitarianism unlike the world has ever seen. Recalling the evil of Stalin, Mao, and Hitler, “mass depopulation” remains a logical outcome.

The fact that this at least could be true means everyone must “fight like crazy to make sure that system never forms.”

Virginia Tech Faces New Lawsuit Over Alleged Free Speech Violations

Virginia Tech is facing a new lawsuit from Speech First, a First Amendment watchdog organization, over allegedly violating students’ rights with vague and broad rules surrounding student speech.

In the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia, Speech First alleges that Virginia Tech’s policies “restrain, deter, depress, and punish speech about the political and social issue of the day.” The organization takes issue with policies that encourage students to police each other, even anonymously, and for incidents that take place outside of campus.

Speech First describes a college environment where speaking freely comes with serious risks of discipline. “Under these policies, students can be disciplined for ‘unwelcome jokes’ — or even being present when such jokes are made and failing to report when such comments are made by another person; sending “partisan, political” emails using the university’s internet; or failing to register to hand out flyers on campus,” the organization says.

Anti-Global-Warming-Hysteria Book is Driving Norwegian Alarmists Nuts

Other than by misspelling “fjord,” how would an American geologist draw the ire of a pair of Norwegian politicians? Answer: Write a book that counters the notion that human activity is causing the globe to warm with catastrophic consequences.

Gregory Wrightstone’s 2017 book, Inconvenient Facts: The Science That Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know, was published in Norway and is being promoted by the Climate Realists, a Norwegian organization, which shares the author’s view that modern warming is neither unusual nor unprecedented.

Backed with 90 illustrations and 15 pages of references, the book presents 60 footnoted facts inconvenient to the Western elite’s absurd narrative about global warming.

Among them: Most of the last 10,000 years have been warmer than today, including the Medieval Warm Periodwhen Vikings raised barley on Greenland, and the Roman Warm Period when citrus grew in northern England.

After the Climate Realists announced plans to distribute the book to all 356 of Norway’s mayors, two members of Norway’s unicameral Stortinget — Tom-Christer Nilsen and Lene Westgaard-Halle — wrote the mayors a letter discouraging them from accepting a book that is popular “because lies are more entertaining” than the truth.

France: Senate Votes to Ban Hijab for Girls Under 18, Citing ‘Inferiorisation of Women’

The French Senate has voted to implement a hijab ban for Muslim girls under the age of 18. As expected, an Islamic supremacist activist group, bent on foisting its Sharia values upon Western countries, is robustly in opposition:

Activist and founder of Muslim Women’s Day Amani al-Khatahtbeh…took to her social media to say, “My French sisters, know that we see you, stand with you and fight with you against the globalized Islamophobia that brought us here.”

Meanwhile, human rights activist women in countries including Saudi Arabia and Iran and have faced severe punishment for choosing not to wear the hijab. These two countries are the keepers of Sunni and Shia Islam (respectively).

In July 2013, following a police check on a veiled woman, 400 residents stormed the building. The siege lasted several hours and required, from the police, 700 stun grenades and tear gas. A helicopter was mobilized.”It looked like a war scene,” a policeman said at the time.
