Biden Says Americans Who Get Vaccinated Can Celebrate the 4th of July, ‘You’re Able to Get in the Backyard With a Group of People Because You’ve Been Vaccinated’ (Video)

Joe Biden delivered remarks from the White House on Tuesday and encouraged Americans to continue to cower in fear over a virus with a 99.98% survival rate.

“The virus is spreading because we have too many people who see the end in sight, think we’re at the finish line,” Biden said. “Let me be deadly earnest with you: we aren’t at the finish line…We’re still in a life and death race against this virus.”

Joe Biden previously told Americans that if we “do our part” by wearing masks and staying socially distanced we will be able to celebrate the 4th of July with a cookout or a barbecue in our backyards with family and friends.

Now Biden is saying only vaccinated Americans can celebrate the 4th of July.

Biden Admits He Hasn’t Confronted Chinese President Xi Jinping Over His Country Misleading the World About Coronavirus Origin

President Biden acknowledged Tuesday that he has yet to confront Chinese President Xi Jinping about China’s efforts to mislead the entire world about the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Biden and former President Donald Trump both have noted that China worked for nearly a year to try to distract and obstruct legitimate studies into the source and start of the novel coronavirus that has now killed nearly 3 million people worldwide.

While virtually many health organizations believe the virus began in Wuhan, China, for a host of corroborated reasons, the communist country’s officials have consistently made the unsubstantiated accusation that it originated with the U.S. military.

How Vaccine Passports Are Crushing Freedom, Privacy, And Civil Liberties

In March 2020, during the early stages of the declared coronavirus pandemic, world leaders started to restrict the freedom of their citizens by forcing them into lockdown.

Many countries framed their response to the pandemic as a temporary measure. For example, an early coronavirus initiative from the White House that encouraged people to stay home was titled “15 Days to Slow the Spread.”

Yet more than a year later, not only are many of these major democratic countries still locked down but their governments have used the pandemic to introduce further measures that infringe on their citizens’ freedom and privacy.

Government-backed contact tracing apps, snitching websites, and more have all become commonplace during the last year.

Now, governments around the world are pushing a new measure that poses an even greater risk to freedom, privacy, and civil liberties — coronavirus vaccine passports.

Medic Who Shot 2 Was Assigned to Medical Research Center

FREDERICK, Md. — A Navy medic who shot and wounded two U.S. sailors before he was killed by police on a nearby Army base was assigned to a Naval medical research center in Maryland for nearly two years, according to his service record.

Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet, 38, and the two men he shot were all assigned to Fort Detrick in Frederick, authorities said after Tuesday’s shootings.

Woldesenbet’s service record says he enlisted in September 2012 and most recently reported to the Naval Medical Research Center in Frederick in August 2019. In between, he served at military facilities in San Antonio, Texas; Camp Lejeune in North Carolina; Corpus Christi, Texas; Bremerton, Washington; and Portsmouth, Virginia.

Woldesenbet was awarded a Good Conduct Medal, a National Defense Service Medal and a Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, his record shows. It lists his rank as Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class.

One of the wounded sailors was released from a Baltimore hospital on Tuesday afternoon, while the other was in critical condition, military officials said on the Navy’s Twitter account.

The Navy says it is sending a “Special Psychiatric Rapid Intervention Team” to Fort Detrick to offer mental health services to people on the base.

Authorities haven’t disclosed a possible motive for the shooting, which took place at a warehouse rented by the Naval Medical Research Center, Biological Defense Research Directorate to store research supplies and equipment. The facility is located in the Riverside Tech Park, an office park several miles from the base…

Young Woman Has Insane Meltdown… Assaults Delivery Woman in Elevator for Not Properly Wearing Face Mask or Maintaining Social Distance [Video]

One thing the Wuhan virus pandemic has done is shine a light on our youth, who should be free-thinkers, but instead, are freely accepting the authority of our government who are mandating that they give up their freedoms in the name of “safety.” Our youth have become sitting ducks for the socialist propaganda Democrats, and Dr. Fauci are pushing about sacrificing for the common good.

100 Percent Fed Up — Go to almost any college campus in America, and you’ll see college kids walking around, by themselves, OUTSIDE, wearing a mask. College students are being threatened by the college administrators and shamed by their peers…and the heartbreaking part is that they’re conforming without uttering a word of dissent. Curiously, they’re not even questioning the science behind wearing a mask outside—they’re literally sitting in their rooms, masked up, and waiting for the moment the government will give back their freedom.

Today, a video was posted on Twitter that reveals just how unhinged our youth have become over the fear of contracting COVID, a virus with a 0.2 percent death rate for people younger than 25.

Hungary Begins Gradual Easing of Lockdown as Number of Vaccinated Reaches 2.5 Million

Hungary is today beginning a gradual easing of the coronavirus restrictions in place since early March after the number of inoculated people reached 2.5 million in the country of just under 10 million, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a short video message posted on Facebook.

“Today we have reached a significant milestone, and 2.5 million of our compatriots have been vaccinated. We have been living under conditions reminiscent of wartime for a year with restrictions, curfews and personal losses… We have doubled the number of vaccinated people on one month. Therefore, from tomorrow, stores can reopen, and services can restart,” Orban said in the video. Shortly afterwards, the government issued the relevant ordinance detailing the measures:

  • As of April 7, the curfew is amended for the period from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • The shops may be open from 5 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
  • Stores, including those that have been closed since March 8, may be open, albeit under new square meter-based rules
  • On average, there can be one customer per 10 square meters in the store under the new regulations
  • Temporary protection measures related to the services will be lifted, allowing hairdressers, beauticians and other providers to open up.
  • However, restaurants may still not be open during normal operation, only those working there may be present in these units. Guests may enter the restaurants only for the purpose of picking uping takeaway food for the necessary period
  • Hotels still cannot accept guests.

Sweden: Study: Anti-Depressant Drugs in the Water Making Fish Cowardly and Nervous

An increasing amount of anti-depressant drug residue in the water is making fish cowardly and nervous, according to a new study.

Lund University’s Jerker Vinterstare studied how the behavior of crucian carp fish when exposed to such pharmaceuticals was similar in nature to their natural stress response to being threatened by a predator.

In his paper, Vinterstare analyzes how the neurotransmitter serotonin, an ingredient of SSRI drugs, affects the fish.

“The results show that individuals who ingest a relatively high dose become nervous and cowardly in a completely different way than those who do not ingest anything,” reports FriaTider.

European People’s Party leader Donald Tusk’s claim that Viktor Orban and Matteo Salvini are “pro-Putin” is hypocritical given Tusk’s open alliance with Germany’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and Social Democrats (SPD), two parties that have actively supported Russia in a variety of ways, including the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Donald Tusk’s criticism of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki comes after the last week meeting between Morawiecki, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and League leader Matteo Salvini in Budapest. One of the main topics of this meeting was the creation of a new right group in the European Parliament, which would be comprised of Poland’s Law and Justice (PiS), Hungary’s Fidesz and the Italian League party.

In response to the meeting, Tusk posted on social media that the eventual creation of the new political force in the European Parliament would benefit Russian President Vladimir Putin.

UK: Rape Gangs Whistleblower: Predators Still at Large Due to ‘Institutional Cowardice’

Police detective turned rape gangs whistleblower Maggie Oliver has blamed the “institutional cowardice” of Britain’s courts and police forces for the fact that convicted predators are receiving soft sentences and, in many cases, remain at large in their victims’ communities.

The issue of so-called “grooming” gangs, comprised largely of Muslims of Pakistani heritage who targeted mostly white working-class girls and young women, received a fresh flicker of attention in recent days after a leading tabloid published pictures of Rochdale predator Qari Abdul Rauf walking the streets of the city where he preyed on his young victims once again, having served just two and a half years of a six-year sentence, with the Conservative party-led government having failed to deliver on its promises to deport him.

Vaccine Passports Could be Required to Enter Shops in UK

The government has been accused of deliberately creating confusion after it was revealed that vaccine passports COULD be required to enter shops despite initial assurances that this wouldn’t be the case.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson and others within the government claimed that COVID passports are only being considered for mass gathering events like football matches and music concerts.

However, it has now emerged that there is nothing within a report released on Monday that would prevent them from being introduced later for premises like clothing shops, book stores and electronic outlets.

Ron Paul: Why is the Biden Administration Pushing Ukraine to Attack Russia?

Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity

On March 24th, Ukraine’s President Vladimir Zelensky signed what was essentially a declaration of war on Russia. In the document, titled Presidential Decree No. 117/2021, the US-backed Ukrainian leader declared that it is the official policy of Ukraine to take back Crimea from Russia.

The declaration that Ukraine would take back Crimea from Russia also followed, and was perhaps instigated by, President Biden’s inflammatory and foolish statement that “Crimea is Ukraine.”

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who was a chief architect of the US-backed coup against Ukraine in 2014, continued egging on the Ukrainians, promising full US support for the “territorial integrity” of Ukraine. Many Americans wonder why they are not even half as concerned about the territorial integrity of the United States!

Not to be outdone, at the beginning of this month US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin — who previously served on the board of missile-maker Raytheon — called his counterpart in Ukraine and promised “unwavering US support for Ukraine’s sovereignty.” As the US considers Crimea to be Ukrainian territory, this is clearly a clear green light for Kiev to take military action.

Washington is also sending in weapons. Some 300 tons of new weapons have arrived in the past weeks and more is on the way.

America’s Vaccine Passports and China’s Social Credit System

China’s plan for a social credit system is much like our financial credit system, but this system is about analyzing your character and trustworthiness toward the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It’s an idea straight out of Orwell’s 1984. The original Chinese proposal for the system, titled “Planning Outline for the Construction of a Social Credit System is ungodly control. Unfortunately, the second half of the paper is in Chinese, but the point is…every Chinese citizen must be a good little communist or else there are consequences.

Here is just one paragraph from this evil and obnoxious system.

Accelerating the construction of a social credit system is an important basis for comprehensively implementing the scientific development view and building a harmonious Socialist society, it is an important method to perfect the Socialist market economy system, accelerating and innovating social governance, and it has an important significance for strengthening the sincerity consciousness of the members of society, forging a desirable credit environment, raising the overall competitiveness of the country and stimulating the development of society and the progress of civilization.

Naomi Wolfe talks about the CCP’s social credit system coming to America via vaccine passports. She believes social credit systems are part of the passport plans!

China’s Exploitation of Western Academia

Almost 200 British academics from 20 unnamed UK universities are being investigated for possibly sharing British technology with China that could be used in the Chinese government’s repression of minorities and dissidents, according to a recent news report by The Times. The revelation came shortly after the University of Manchester cancelled a research partnership with China Electronics Technology Group (CETC).

The cancellation came after the university was warned that CETC is, “one of the main architects of the Chinese government’s surveillance state in Xinjiang, China, providing both technology and infrastructure that is being used for the identity-based persecution of more than one million people, predominantly Uyghur Muslims”. The university said their research collaboration with CETC aimed to “significantly advance the field of radio astronomy” and that it had been unaware of CETC’s alleged role in the persecution of Uyghurs.

Filipino Man Who Broke COVID Rules Dies After Reportedly Being Forced to Do 300 Squat-Like Exercises

A Filipino man who was caught violating coronavirus restrictions was reportedly ordered by police to perform hundreds of exercises as punishment, and died a day later, amid concerns that authorities are abusing rule-breakers.

Darren Manaog Penaredondo was reportedly stopped by local security personnel in the City of General Trias, on the island of Luzon, while trying to buy water after curfew. The region is currently under strict lockdown.

According to local media reports, citing his family and his partner, the man was then taken to a nearby square, where along with other rule violators he was instructed to do 100 squat-like exercises. The police allegedly announced that the group would have to perform more exercises if they failed to do them in sync.

In total, Penaredondo was ordered to perform the move 300 times, a physically straining task which he is said to have carried out with some difficulty.

With the assistance of a fellow rule-breaker, he managed to hobble back home. His girlfriend initially thought that he had been beaten up. She said the following day he complained of severe aches in his knees and thighs. He struggled to walk and had to crawl on the floor to move around. Hours later, he suffered from a seizure and collapsed. A neighbor was able to perform CPR and briefly revive him. Penaredondo reportedly died shortly after.

Cardinal Pell Critic Says Prelate Was Victim of ‘Relentlessly Prejudiced’ Media Campaign

Cardinal George Pell was unjustly tried for sex abuse as a “necessary big scalp for media delectation,” writes Jesuit Father Frank Brennan, a vocal critic of Pell’s.

Having attended parts of his two criminal trials and having studied all the publicly available transcript, “I am convinced of Cardinal Pell’s innocence of the criminal charges he faced,” Father Brennan writes in his book Observations on the Pell Proceedings, to be released Thursday.

Watch: Alex Jones Physically Stops Vehicle After Witnessing Migrant Children Being Stuffed in the Luggage Compartment

Alex Jones has once again done what few others would be brave enough to do.

While documenting border crisis, Jones and his crew witnessed a man shoving several very young children into the luggage compartment in the back of his vehicle.

  1. “Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley …. provides the illegal migrants with airplane or bus tickets to any city they choose in the US and a debit card with $1,200 per person.”

    Are these provided from taxpayer dollars, delivered through the charity?

    • Roman Catholic charties are an anti-American scam. They are evil scum for supporting illegals. but i think it is for turning american into a catholic country. Every Roman Catholic country is full of poverty and crime because of that anti-Christ group. they also help the illegals get benefits they don’;t deserve

  2. The President will give me permission to have a BBQ in my backyard on July 4th only if I have been vaccinated? Several means of enforcement come to mind but I would only be ‘droning’ on about the obvious. What is of greater concern is that a President would presume to interfere in the private lives of citizens, or maybe not the president but those who hold the puppet’s strings.

  3. Authorities are concerned by the high numbers of infections from migrants returning to Norway after travelling to their home countries on holiday
    ———————————————-
    Aren’t these folks allegedly fleeing persecution in their homeland? How does that square with returning for holiday? This pretzel logic makes my head hurt.

  4. discussed the release of a new metric that YouTube recently added to its Community Guidelines Enforcement Report — Violative View Rate (VVR).
    So the Information Highway has now become a Toll Road that is policed by the Gestapo. Cute..
