Biden Flips Trump Ban, Orders Fed Agency Trainings on ‘Systemic and Institutional Racism’

President Biden has mandated workplace race-based diversity training programs in all federal agencies — controversial courses that were previously banned as divisive by former President Trump.

In an executive order issued Friday, Biden directed all federal agencies to school their employees on “systemic and institutional racism” and “implicit and unconscious bias” — buzzwords associated with critical race theory, whose proponents see racism as the foundation of American society.

Fifth Body Pulled From Rubble of Collapsed Florida Condo, 156 People Still Missing

Search and rescue crews unearthed another body Saturday from the rubble of a collapsed condo building in Surfside, Florida, bringing the death toll to five with 156 people still unaccounted for, officials said.

Human remains were also recovered, said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.

Four of the deceased were identified by Miami police as Stacie Dawn Fang, 54; Antonio Lozano, 83; Gladys Lozano, 79; and Manuel LaFont, 54.

“Our top priority continues to be search and rescue, and saving any lives that we can,” Levine Cava said. “Our teams have been working around the clock as always. They have not stopped.”

Officials are in the process of collecting DNA samples from families to help identify more victims as search efforts continue more than 72 hours after the building crumbled. Rescue teams from Mexico and Israel are helping in ongoing search efforts while additional offers for support from across the world continue to pour in, the mayor said.

“This has truly shown us how truly interconnected we are,” she said…

‘Free Britney’ A Bipartisan Cause on Capitol Hill After Impassioned Testimony

Britney Spears has finally brought bipartisanship to Congress.

Since her explosive testimony to a Los Angeles courtroom asking a judge to free her from a conservatorship overseen by her “bullying” and “abusive” father, Spears’ cause has been taken up by Capitol Hill pols on both sides of the aisle.

“#FreeBritney reads a pair of tweets from Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and the official account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee members.

“It’s insane you can force a woman to basically sterilize herself under the guise of protection. If this is happening to Britney Spears, how many other women across the country are silently suffering?” tweeted Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.)

Democratic politicians were equally impassioned.

New App Wants to Get Employers to Verify Workers’ Vaccine Status

In the US, employees are facing more and more pressure to reveal their vaccination status as many companies are moving to bring them back into offices, after Covid lockdowns forced them to work remotely for over a year.

For now at least, only 30% of companies that recently took part in a Willis Towers Watson poll are implementing mandated vaccine status requirements, or are thinking about it.

And to facilitate and sell this approach companies like identity technology vendor Proxy are coming up with solutions that are said to bypass both the principle of trust between employer and employee, and presenting CDC digital vaccine certificates in order to have somebody’s vaccination status verified.

Pennsylvania Lost $ 1.7 Billion in 2019 Due to Migration, Research Found

Overall, Pennsylvania lost 12,604 people that year, according to Wirepoint. This study looked at how population changes between states change the overall adjusted total income of each state’s population.

The authors said Pennsylvania’s performance in the analysis was the sixth worst of the bottom 48 states.

For these states, which attract the most people and wealth, the result was economic growth, investment, and an expanding tax base. However, research shows that these states, which are suffering from immigrant outflows, have had difficulty paying off public debt and have also experienced tax increases.

According to Wirepoint, the main drawback of people and their wealth outflows in these states is that losses affect not only the year the resident leaves, but the years that follow.

Poll: 27% of Oregon Residents Support Abolishing Police

Abolishing the police — once a fringe issue — has become a mainstream, albeit minority opinion.

After a year of unrest that pitted Portland protesters against cops, around one-quarter of Oregonians now support eliminating their local police department and creating alternative teams of social workers, drug counselors and mental health experts, a new poll says.

A total of 27% of survey respondents strongly or somewhat support that proposal, according to research by the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center — but 67% oppose it and 7% are unsure.

Report: Key Witness in Julian Assange Case Confesses to ‘Fabricating’ Claims Against WikiLeaks

A key witness, an FBI informant propped up by US authorities in the case against Julian Assange, is being discredited by an Icelandic news outlet that claims to have interviewed him.

The current situation with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange involves the US trying to extradite him from the UK in order to face trial. To do that, the Department of Justice leaned heavily on charges of criminal activity in Iceland they claim happened in 2010 and 2011.

What US officials alleged Julian Assange committed in terms of crimes is cast into doubt by one Sigurdur Ingi Thordarson. He admitted to Stundin of fabricating evidence to get Assange indicted. Even though Thordarson himself talked with “international hacking groups,” there’s no evidence from chat logs that suggests that Wikileaks staff knew about it. Thordarson’s connections to Wikileaks were in reality a limited fundraising basis, but he over-embellished his own role within the organization.

Sean Parnell: Critical Race Theory ‘Will Cost Lives on the Battlefield”

Veteran and Pennsylvania Senate candidate Sean Parnell reacted to Gen. Mark Milley’s comments on critical race theory Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

SEAN PARNELL: If you’re looking for a way to destroy the United States military from the inside out without firing a shot, talk about what he’s talking about and implement critical race theory. It’s a disaster, it’s dangerous, it makes it harder to accomplish the mission and ultimately I think it will cost lives on the battlefield. I was blessed to lead an infantry platoon on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan we were probably the most diverse unit that you could possibly imagine, northerners serving next to southerners, Black next to White, Christians next to atheists next to Jews, rich next to poor, young versus old, and yeah Democrats next to Republicans, right? We didn’t focus on our many differences. There were no hyphenated Americans with us in Afghanistan and what we realized our secret weapon was is it wasn’t the sexy guns and equipment that we had, it was the love and brotherhood that we had for one another that allowed us to defeat the enemy at every single turn.

Virginia State-Wide PTA Threatens to Dissolve Top School’s PTA Over ‘Diversity’ Challenge

Parents at Thomas Jefferson School for Science and Technology fought to maintain the enterance exam policy, but Virginia State PTA is threatening to disband the school’s PTA over their resistance.

The story from Daily Wire explains the fight was over the inclusion of a math and science entrance exam meant to prove whether or not prospective students were proficient learners in these subjects. The Fairfax County school board got rid of it late last year in the name of “diversity” after complaints about the racial demographics of Thomas Jefferson’s student body, which was 73% Asian.

But the school’s PTA pushed back against the Critical Race Theory-based policy. They elected a committee that had a majority wanting to keep the school’s admissions test. But Virginia State PTA demanded TJHSST’s principal Ann Bonitatibus be allowed to vote, after the school’s PTA president and a group of parents lobbied for it.

Section 13 was repealed in 2013 on free speech rights grounds, but Liberals now appear to be looking for ways to bring it back in a “new and improved” version.

In a monologue as it launched, he declared his channel would give a voice “to those who felt sidelined or even silenced in our great national debates”. Unfortunately, numbers of that much-touted “silent majority” have since dwindled, as viewing figures fail to match established rivals such as Sky News or BBC News.

“This utmost sacrifice must not be in vain and the memory of them will be indelible.

Muslim Labourer Violently Stabs Hindu Factory Manager and Driver Over the Issue of Increasing Daily Wages During Pandemic

Why a Hindu/Christian/Jew employer should not choose any Muslim staff anyway…

Upendra Bharti | HENB | Kolkata | June 26, 2021:: Two Hindu persons were seriously injured when a 50-year old worker at a cloth-making factory in Kasba attacked them with a sharp weapon on Saturday evening over the wage he received after working in the Covid period. Kahar Molla, a resident of Picnic Garden, has been arrested and a case of attempt to murder has been registered.

Both victims are residents of Barisha and work in the same factory. While Tuhin Kumar Dey (53) is the manager, Saswata Chakrabory (29) is a driver. They have been admitted to a private hospital near Ruby crossing. Dey had received injuries on his shoulder and left hand, and Chakraborty had severe injuries on his neck and was stated to be critical initially, but both were restored in stability, as the reports came in latest.

Police said the case was registered on the basis of Dey’s statement. He said Molla got into an argument with them around 6.30 pm and the attack took place 10 minutes later, after Kahar completed his Namaz inside the factory room.

Incidentally, the Muslim labourer who attacked his Hindu manager and his Hindu Driver could not be repentant anyway, rather he was furious enough against the non Muslim victims, even after arrest.

“The accused repeatedly hit the victims with a round, sharp blade-like object, used for cutting cloth. He had fixed the blade with an iron rod,” said an officer.

“Dey claimed Molla was unhappy with his wage and was demanding more wages during the pandemic. But Molla, during interrogation, said he was denied the right pay after putting in hours of work in the Covid times. He claimed he lost his cool after being denied multiple times. We will speak to other employees in this regard,” said the officer. DC (SSD) Rashid Munir Khan said, “The accused had a grudge against the victims as he was reportedly deprived of the right wage.”

Fact is that, the issues of wages/salaries between employer and the staff or laborers are not new. But, it is dangerous that Muslim employees, staff or laborers always find the scope to make harm to their non-Muslim (Hindu-Christian-Jew whoever may be) employers or to attack them out of any point of dispute.

Muslim employees/staff/laborers never find any good for their non Muslim employers or business owners or company/factory managers. Quran teaches Muslims for the enmity with kaffirs/infidels/non-Muslims. Hence, a Hindu/Christian/Jew employer should not deploy any Muslim staff anyway.

Otherwise, it may be a catastrophe.

The raid of 2 venues that attempted to skirt the national bar and club closure laws by operating as an alleged restaurant took place between midnight and 2 am.

The so-called restaurants had been operating undercover as bars and shisha lounges while the Covid-19 emergency decree closed all evening entertainment venues, banned alcohol, and restricted gatherings. Additionally, shisha has been illegal in Thailand for years. Despite attempting to disguise their activities as a restaurant, alcohol sales in restaurants are also prohibited in Chon Buri currently.
