BLM Protest Planned at New York Restaurant Where Brawl Over Vaccination Proof Occurred

A Black Lives Matter protest is reportedly set to take place on Monday outside the Italian restaurant Carmine’s in New York City, where a physical dispute erupted on Thursday over COVID vaccination proof cards.

Hawk Newsome, co-founder and chairman of BLM Greater New York, told The New York Times on Saturday that the group will protest against the treatment of Black patrons. The plan to protest comes after new details reportedly reveal that the restaurant hostess said a racial slur to a group of five Black women trying to enter.

“Restaurants are using vaccine mandates to enforce their racist beliefs and excluding Black patrons,” Newsome said.

On Thursday, a group of five Texas women physically assaulted the restaurant hostess after she said that their vaccination proof cards were fake, but an attorney for one of the women, Kaeita Nkeenge Rankin, described the fight as a “mutual combat.”

Facebook Won’t Respond to Accusations it “Asked Fact-Checking Partners to Retroactively Change Their Findings”

“The Facebook Files” is an in-depth series based on leaked internal documents that expose the way social media giant Facebook views its platform and its social impact. It was released earlier this week.

Several factors are raised in The Journal’s reporting, including Instagram’s negative impact on minors, the implications of algorithmic changes on political discourse, and Facebook’s protection of influential users. Facebook’s internal research opposes its public assertions, and the company has internalized its societal ills while publicizing its positives in the report.

The Journal also highlighted that their decisions may not be as impartial as they appear on the surface and that “Facebook has asked fact-checking partners to retroactively change their findings on posts from high-profile accounts.”

OpenSea Launches Mobile App, But is Limited by Apple and Google’s Oppressive Rules

There’s a lot of recent excitement about OpenSea, the marketplace for those who are interested in decentralized finance and collectibles. But, up until now they’ve had no apps available on either iPhone or Android.

OpenSea, this weekend, launched a new app for both platforms.

However, it’s not going to be the app that the developers would have ultimately wanted in a perfect world — that’s because it has to be limited for viewing digital collectibles/NFTs only, in order to comply with Apple and Google’s rules.

Exclusive: Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau’s Disturbing Follow-Up on Ukraine Flight 752 Shot Down by Iran

On January 8, 2020, Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 was shot down minutes after takeoff from Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. All 176 passengers and crew on board were killed. Fifty-five Canadian citizens and 30 permanent residents were among the 176. A significant number of victims were young people, including children. According to a BBC report at the time: “The deaths have cast a pall over university campuses across the country [Canada].” Eight days later, Canada and its International Coordination and Response Group partners created a legal subcommittee to coordinate and collaborate on efforts to hold Iran accountable for its violations of international law.

The Canadian government responded with appropriate compassion, with promises of justice for the victims’ families, but quite abruptly, the tide has turned, forcing the families to use every legal means to pursue justice on their own, and the interests of all potential victims of terror. This is peculiar, given that only two months ago, Canada reiterated its unwavering support.

France: Court Acquits Imam Who Quoted Muhammad Commanding Muslims to Kill Jews

This acquittal will have reverberations for generations to come. There is nothing this imam says that is “extremist”; it is all mainstream Islam. The genocidal hadith he quotes, about the rocks and trees calling on Muslims to kill Jews, is at Sahih Muslim 6985 and elsewhere. Will some “moderate Muslim” spokesman explain exactly how Mohamed Tatai is “hijacking” Islam? Don’t hold your breath. And what will the future of France, and the West in general, be like as a result of inviting in such people, and never confronting them on their beliefs and activities that are at variance with Western social norms and principles?

As you can see, it is a return to the American fold and accepting a form of vassal status,” France’s minister for Europe, Clément Beaune, seethed in comments to state broadcaster Public Sénat reported by The Times — as if Britain being an EU member and the French getting the submarine contract would have meant the British were more sovereign, somehow.

India: Married Muslim Man Lures Two Hindu Women Into Relationship, Kills Both

We have reported on numerous accounts of Hindu women being deceived into relationships by Muslim men and subsequently forced into religious conversions, condemned to living a hellish life, if not to being brutally murdered by the “beloved.” But the case of the double murders that we are covering today will send chills down your spine.

On August 31, police found a dead body of a woman lying near the rail gate of Matigara, a rural area in Siliguri, West Bengal. It appeared to be a case of homicide; following investigations, the police identified the diseased as a local married woman, Ankita Maity. Not surprisingly, the husband and his family became the first suspects in the murder case, and were detained by the police. But during the investigation, the police discovered that Ankita had recently been in a relationship with a local Muslim man, Mohammed Akhtar Hussain. Reportedly, Hussain is married and has children.

Now the Lancet U-Turns Over COVID Lab Leak Theory and Publishes ‘Alternative View’ Calling for a ‘Transparent Debate’ On the Origins of the Virus

The Lancet medical journal has bowed to pressure over its heavily-criticised coverage of the disputed origins of the Covid pandemic by publishing an ‘alternative view’ from 16 scientists — calling for an ‘objective, open and transparent debate’ about whether the virus leaked from a Chinese laboratory.

It was revealed earlier this year that Peter Daszak — a British scientist with long-standing links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology — had secretly orchestrated a landmark statement in The Lancet in February 2020 which attacked ‘conspiracy theories suggesting that Covid-19 does not have a natural origin’.

The now-infamous letter, signed by 27 leading public health experts, said they stood together to ‘strongly condemn’ the theories which they said ‘do nothing but create fear, rumours, and prejudice’.
