Peter Schiff: Biden Infrastructure Plan Will Weaken the Economy and Destroy Opportunity

Joe Biden unveiled details of his $2 trillion-plus infrastructure plan complete with tax hikes. The claim is that this is going to strengthen the economy and create opportunity. Peter broke down the spending plan in his podcast and said it will do the exact opposite. It’s going to weaken the economy and destroy opportunity.

6000% Increase in Reported Vaccine Deaths 1st Quarter 2021 Compared to 1st Quarter 2020

As can be expected when new experimental “vaccines” that are not approved by the FDA are given emergency use authorization to fight a “pandemic” that is now over a year old, reported deaths following the injections of these shots have now skyrocketed in the U.S. population by over 6000% here at the end of the first quarter of 2021, as compared to recorded deaths following FDA-approved vaccines at the end of the first quarter of 2020.

These new products, which many doctors and scientists claim do not even meet the legal definition of a “vaccine,” are described by the manufacturers themselves as “operating systems” called the “software of life,” and prior to COVID they have never been approved to be used on human populations.

There are literally thousands of doctors and scientists around the world who have spoken out against these experimental injections, some even calling them “biological weapons of mass destruction.”

Their voices are censored in the pharma-controlled corporate media and by Big Tech, so the people dying and becoming injured by these injections are the pro-vaccine people who primarily only get their information from these censored sources that are funded by Wall Street corporate billionaires, such as Bill Gates.

A Virginia Student Was Suspended Over a Snapchat Post. Now Her Case is Going to the Supreme Court.

A high school cheerleader who was suspended from school in 2017 for writing “f**k cheer” on social media will have her case heard by the Supreme Court. The teenager argues that, by punishing her, the school violated her First Amendment free speech rights.

Back in 2017, Brandi Levy, then 14, did not make the varsity cheerleading team in her freshman year. Frustrated, she went to her Snapchat and uploaded a picture of herself holding up the middle finger. The photo had the statement “f**k school f**k softball f**k cheer f**k everything,” written across it.

Anti-Capitalist Scales Bank Wall and Falls Hard During Protest

An anti-capitalist protester climbed the ladder … but it was not the ladder of success, because he plummeted to the ground during a demonstration, injuring himself as the sidewalk oozed with a black substance.

It went down Friday on Madison Avenue, as 32-year-old Kevin Clarke tried scaling a grid at Chase Bank. The higher he got, the more he struggled until he lost his grip and fell around 30 feet to the ground, injuring his hip.

Bronx Shooting Leaves 1 Dead, Bystander Hurt; 2 Arrested

NEW YORK (AP) — Officers in the Bronx came upon the scene of a fatal shooting Saturday night and arrested two gunmen, police said. One male was fatally shot and an innocent bystander was injured, authorities said.

The shooting happened around 6:30 p.m. near 165th St. and Findlay Ave. in the Concourse Village neighborhood.

Three officers responding to gunshots witnessed the two suspects shoot a male victim multiple times before fleeing down the street as officers fired their weapons, police said at a news conference. The suspects, one of whom was shot, were captured nearby by other responding officers.

Police said the person who was shot by the gunmen succumbed to his wounds.

The gunman who was shot was hospitalized and listed as stable, officials said. A bystander was also shot in the arm and underwent surgery.

Authorities did not immediately release the names or ages of those involved.

Busted: NPR Forced to Issue Huge Correction After US Intelligence Debunks Their Hunter Biden Story

On Thursday, NPR was forced to issue a correction because they had previously falsely reported that the famous Hunter Biden laptop story and investigation had been dropped and discredited by US intelligence.

“A previous version of this story said U.S. intelligence had discredited the laptop story. U.S. intelligence officials have not made a statement to that effect,” read the correction.

According to Fox News, the original text of the article was, “The laptop story was discredited by U.S. intelligence and independent investigations by news organizations.” The changed text now reads, “Numerous news organizations cast doubt on the credibility of the laptop story.”

Can mRNA Gene Therapy Jabs Permanently Alter Your DNA?

A 2006 study shows that exogenous RNA molecules can be reverse-transcribed in the body into cDNA copies. It’s already known that “mature spermatozoa of most animal species can spontaneously take up foreign DNA molecules which can be delivered to embryos upon fertilization,” the study begins. And then, “These cDNA copies are transferred to embryos at fertilization … [and] the reverse-transcribed sequences behave as functional genes.”

So what does that mean in plain language? What this study says is that sperm can take up foreign messenger RNA, convert it into DNA and release it as plasmids in the medium around the fertilized egg.

What’s most concerning when it comes to the mRNA vaccines is that the study also found that the embryo then takes up these plasmids and carries them (sustains and clones them into many of the daughter cells) throughout its life, even passing them on to future generations. So, the real answer as to whether or not mRNA gene therapy can permanently alter your DNA is a definite yes — and it’s something scientists have been aware for years.

CNN ‘Medical Expert’ & CDC Suggest Americans’ “Freedoms” Be Restricted Until They Are Vaccinated

With nearly every state having opened vaccinations to all adults, the CDC on Friday announced the second loosening of certain federal guidelines by declaring that all Americans who are “fully vaccinated” — a status obtained two weeks after the second dose (for Moderna and Pfizer) or the one and only dose (for JNJ) can travel “at low risk to themselves” both with the US and abroad, and won’t need to be tested for COVID before boarding a plane.

However, the CDC advised that they should continue to take precautions like wearing a mask in public, avoiding crowds, maintaining social distancing and washing one’s hands frequently.

While the press celebrated the advisory as a milestone in the road back to “normalcy”, some wondered whether the CDC got the memo about packed seats on airplanes and the virtually completely reopened Florida that’s attracting tourists from around the country.

Cornell University Mandates Vaccine Requirement for Both Staff and Students

NY State’s Cornell University will be insisting on students and staff being vaccinated in order for them to return to the campus, according to a statement released on Friday.

According to the NY Post, Cornell also expressed that they expect in-person classes to return completely by the start of the 2021 fall semester.

Fourth Circuit Upholds FBI Terrorist Watch List

WASHINGTON (CN) — Three conservative judges on the Fourth Circuit upheld the FBI’s terror watch list Tuesday, unanimously overturning a federal judge’s ruling which deemed it unconstitutional.

“We have such imperfect comprehension of the consequences of our interventions as to raise the prospect here of doing far more harm than good,” U.S. Circuit Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III, a Reagan appointee, penned in the opinion.

In September 2019, U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga in Alexandria, a Bush appointee, ruled that the government’s justifications for placing people in their Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), which consists of over 1 million people identified as “known or suspected terrorists,” were too vague and violated constitutional rights.

Government lawyers have insisted that the program is vital to national security, and urged the judges during oral arguments not to intervene with the executive branch’s administration of the list and its national security judgments. But the nearly two dozen Muslim U.S. citizens who brought the lawsuit said the list has created significant and unconstitutional burdens for them.

“An overwhelming bipartisan majority of Americans support requiring an ID to vote, and any organization that abuses its power to oppose secure elections deserves increased scrutiny under the law.”

Twitter Shadowbans Gina Carano

Twitter is currently hiding the profile of actress Gina Carano behind a “sensitive content” warning for users who aren’t logged in.

“Caution: This profile may include potentially sensitive content. You’re seeing this warning because they Tweet potentially sensitive images or language. Do you still want to view it?” Twitter asks.

This form of shadowban allows Twitter to suppress content and accounts without the accountability of letting the user know that they’re being suppressed — meaning that the account owner likely wouldn’t even know they were being censored unless someone detects it.

Why Property Rights Matter: Part 4 — How to Fight Back

In an interview with the New American Magazine’s Senior Editor, Alex Newman, famous Rockstar-turned-Pastor Casper McCloud explains how the Bible relates to the issue of the day — in particular the COVID pandemic, the vaccination campaign, and the push towards transhumanism. According to McCloud, the prophetic of this is huge, and this is the time for believers to shine. McCloud also shows how Bill Gates is a key player in the transforming of society and mankind, including in the ongoing development of technologies that may be linked to the infamous “mark of the beast” described in the book of Revelation. For details watch the amazing 11 minutes of video.

Another health authority interviewed by Alex Newman was internationally renowned physician, Carrie Madej. In this interview she explains the enormous unknown risks of the mRNA COVID “vaccines” being injected into people all across the globe. She says this is a giant global experiment, and everyone who takes the experimental jabs, is participating in something unprecedented in human history. Dr. Madej also warns that these shots include code and nanotechnology that will have drastic effects on the functioning of the human body, the immune system, and even human cells. “You will literally be making part of this virus in your body.” She said “This has never happened in the history of humanity.”

She also warned that because these shots are not approved by the FDA, people should consult their life-insurance policy before taking a shot, since it may not pay out if you die. There is also a risk of infertility as the immune system is trained to target particular elements of the reproductive system. “We need to put a moratorium on this,” she said.

YouTube Deletes More Than 2.5m Dislikes From Joe Biden’s White House Channel

About 2.5 million dislikes have been removed from Biden videos on the official White House channel since Biden became president, according to an analysis.

YouTube allows users to like or dislike videos. However, on some occasions and for some channels for the past two years it has had a policy for removing likes and dislikes it deems spam.

“We have policies and systems in place to ensure that the engagement on YouTube is authentic, and remove any fraudulent metrics,” a spokesperson for the platform told Reclaim The Net, but did not provide details on the criteria used to conclude a like or dislike is spam.

It appears YouTube is using the policy on videos posted by the White House. However, it’s not a balance of both likes and dislikes being removed — only the dislikes are disappearing.

“Alienated” From Alberta Health: New Dimension Tattoos Followed Mask Bylaw, Ticketed Anyway

In the tattoo industry, one must be highly trained — and then re-trained — in preventing infectious disease transmission and the spread of blood borne illnesses.

Peel has been in the business for three decades. In fact, he is a second generation tattoo artist and he is at the top of his game. However, Peel has complex health issues that make wearing a mask impossible for him, especially for the long periods of time he would be working on a client.

Lockdown Protest Draws Large Crowd to Brantford

BRANTFORD — Anger and frustration over a year of shutdowns, lockdowns and curtailed civil liberties boiled over into a series of fiery speeches this weekend at a pandemic protest in Brantford.

Ostensibly, more than 1,000 gathered in the parking lot of a shopping centre at 195 Henry Street for the unveiling of “the largest anti-lockdown billboard” in Canada.

However, the two-hour event was also a platform for a slate of speakers, all of whom delivered a uniform message: It’s time, they said, to tune out the politicians, public-health authorities and the “fear-mongering” media and accept COVID-19 as just another illness humanity has to contend with.

“This billboard is the beginning — the beginning of the end of these lockdowns,” said keynote speaker Randy Hillier, the outspoken independent MPP from the riding of Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston.

North Vancouver Residents to Hold Drive-Thru Vigil After Stabbings at Library

VANCOUVER — Residents of North Vancouver are planning a candlelight vigil tonight to honour a young woman who was fatally stabbed at a local library along with six others who were injured there.

The drive-thru event a week after the stabbings is being held at a park in the tightly knit community of Lynn Valley and was organized by the local Lions Club.

Club President Eric Miura says it’s important for residents to heal and express their solidarity for the families of those who’ve been affected by the violence, especially while everyone is already dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

He says the District of North Vancouver approached the group to host the vigil that will feature 2,000 pieces of art by students at a high school and five elementary schools.

Miura says the response from residents, schools and businesses has been overwhelming as people hunger for love and kindness after what he called a tragic attack that traumatized witnesses, including young children…

France: Paris Youth Flout COVID-19 Rules With Illegal, Secret Parties

Paris, Apr 3 (efe-epa).— Young residents of Paris have turned to secret gatherings and parties to escape the pandemic, despite a surge in coronavirus cases that has led to a third lockdown in a year.

The city’s tunnels and disused underground railway tracks have provided an ideal, albeit clandestine, stage for hundreds of young people — the vast majority not wearing masks — to dance the night away to electronic music at events that have been known to go on for days until police intervene to shut them down.

Outside the capital, chateaus in the suburbs provide another pricier alternative: 50 euros per person for entry, transport and accommodation as well as dinner, a 21-year-old woman tells Efe.

Islamo-Leftism and Decolonialism, Two Facets of the Woke Wave in France

The controversy sparked by Higher Education Minister Frédérique Vidal’s February reference to the problem of Islamo-leftism in French universities was further heightened in the second half of March by the announcement of a €2.5 million grant from Strasbourg’s Green mayor’s office to the Turkish Islamist association Millî Görüs for the construction of Europe’s largest mosque.

To justify such a grant from the city led by Mayor Jeanne Barseghian, of the party Europe Écologie Les Verts (EELV), the Alsatian Greens brandished the Concordat between the public authorities and the Catholic Church in their department, which has exixted since the Napoleonic era. In the name of secularism, the Greens believe that the city should finance the construction of mosques in the same way as the maintenance of Catholic churches, even though the Millî Görüs association, known for its links with the Turkish government, professes political Islam and refuses to sign the Charter of the Principles of Islam in France, by which several other Muslim organizations recently affirmed their commitment to the principles of the French Republic and their rejection of radical Islam.

The Takedown of the Union Jack is a Lesson in the Moral Cowardice of Britain’s Cultural Elite

The UK’s culture war is at a stage where respecting your flag is equated to racism and xenophobia. The Union Jack is ridiculed on national airwaves, and even schoolchildren are allowed to shame their teachers into taking it down.

Britain is one of the few places in the world where schoolchildren have permission to express contempt for their nation’s flag. So it is hardly surprising that pupils at Pimlico Academy in South London protested against their school’s policy of flying the Union Jack.

Nor is it surprising that the school swiftly caved in to the children’s demand to take down the ‘racist’ Union flag.

What is truly remarkable is not merely the moral cowardice of the school leaders, who refused to uphold and defend their nation’s principal symbol, but also that the headteacher apologised and actually praised the students’ behaviour!

India: Kerala BJP State Chief Says ‘ISIS is Targeting Hindu-Christian Girls Especially Students’

These “love jihad” incidents are motivated by supremacist assumptions. The idea is that the Muslim community will always grow at the expense of the non-Muslim community, and that because that is a good outcome, any means, including deception, may be pursued in order to attain it. Also, pressure is brought on Hindu women to convert because of the Qur’an: “And do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you. And do not marry polytheistic men until they believe. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist, even though he might please you. Those invite to the fire, but Allah invites to paradise and to forgiveness, by His permission. And he makes clear his verses to the people that perhaps they may remember.” (Qur’an 2:221)

After his passing away, Tausif started vomiting blood. Scared that they may meet a fate like that of Nawaz, they confessed their crime to the temple priest to redeem themselves and seek forgiveness.

Krishna Priya | Jihad Watch Online | New Delhi | April 3, 2021:: Two men, Raheem and Taufiq have surrendered as culprits behind the desecration of the Koragajja Katte Temple, Mangalore.

Last month, secular media in India and its allies worldwide had suffered a massive meltdown when a Muslim boy caught trespassing a Hindu temple was thrashed by the keepers of the temple. 14-year-old Asif claimed that he had entered the temple to drink water. Journalists who reached the venue to report on the incident have confirmed that there was a drinking water source right outside the temple. This leaves us wondering why Asif chose to walk into a Hindu worship place when he could have quenched his thirst from the water source outside…
