The Elites’ Abuse of Average Americans

It wasn’t the rich who suffered unemployment and homes lost to foreclosure during the pandemic. It wasn’t the elites whose children received a lousy education when the schools closed. It isn’t our wealthy politicians who live in the foul, dangerous neighborhoods of our inner cities.

Yet on they go, ordering the rest of us about like the serfs some of us are becoming, blind to the suffering of so many of our citizens, or worse, throwing money at problems that instead demand a commitment to make the American Dream available to the kid on the street in Detroit or to the girl living in a trailer park in Sylva, North Carolina.

Allison Williams Leaving ESPN Over COVID Vaccine Mandate

ESPN college football sideline reporter Allison Williams said Friday night she is leaving the company over a coronavirus vaccine mandate issued for all Disney employees.

Williams said last month she was advised by her doctor to forgo getting the coronavirus vaccine because she was trying to get pregnant. She said the decision to skip the vaccine sidelined her from working college football games. She said in an Instagram video on Friday her “request for accommodation” was denied.

California Parents, Teachers Plan Statewide Walkout to Protest School Vaccine Mandate

California parents and teachers who oppose school vaccine mandates are planning a statewide walkout Monday, according to reports.

News about the planned protest has spread on social media, with organizers suggesting that parents pull their children out of school and that teachers and staff who support the protest stay home.

California became the first state to mandate vaccinations or coronavirus testing for eligible children to attend in-person classes at public and private schools after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the requirement Oct. 1. Students who don’t comply will be required to do an independent study. There are medical and personal belief exemptions.

He has taken a stand against the state’s new curriculum structure that essentially allows remedial math classes to count for college credit.

Fauci Allegedly Misled Trump Administration on Gain-of-Function Research in Wuhan: Book

A new book from an investigative Australian reporter dives into how Dr. Anthony Fauci reportedly misled the Trump administration on gain-of-function research in China.

“Fauci’s public persona as a cautious, careful medical professional is contradicted by his central role in kickstarting exceptionally fraught gain-of-function research in the United States after the ban introduced in the Obama era, along with his role in funding coronavirus research in China in unsafe laboratories. Laboratories that intelligence agencies suspect may have sparked the pandemic,” Sharri Markson details in her new book, “What Really Happened In Wuhan.”

Loudoun County Prosecutor Who Sought to Jail Father of Girl Allegedly Raped at School Tied to Soros, McAuliffe

Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj was described in the explosive report by The Daily Wire as the “progressive” elected county prosecutor who ran on a platform of ending “mass incarceration,” but yet she sought jail time for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, both misdemeanor charges, against Scott Smith.

NCAA Task Force Recommends Removing Minimum Standardized Test Scores in Effort to Advance Racial Equity

An NCAA task force recommended on Friday that incoming freshmen in Division I and II sports should no longer be required to meet minimum scores on standardized tests for initial eligibility.

The recommendation was made by the NCAA Standardized Test Score Task Force, which was formed as part of the NCAA’s eight-point plan to advance racial equity. The Division I Committee on Academics and Division II Academic Requirements Committee will consider the recommendation at their next scheduled meetings in February. Changes to initial-eligibility requirements would also have to be reviewed and made through each division’s legislative process.

NYC Judge Blocks Unvaccinated Father From Visiting Daughter in Custody Dispute

A New York City judge, Mathew Cooper, has just handed down an order in an ongoing custody battle blocking visits between a Long Island man and his three-year-old daughter because he is unvaccinated.

The order specifically states that the father, in order to see his daughter, must either be fully vaccinated or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing. He must also get an antigen test within 24 hours of his every other weekend visits with his child.

According to the Daily Mail, the father, who as of yet is not identified, is embroiled in a bitter custody battle for the girl, and has been seeing her every other weekend.

Saturday Snippet: Doing Business Under Nazism (Or Any Other Extremism)

Note, too, that the influence of the “Party” over everyday life extends far beyond the business sphere. We’re seeing similar attempts to impose ideology over law, and political correctness over our constitution, in many walks of life. (Consider the Loudon County, Virginia, and its school board, trampling roughshod over parental rights and the views of its citizens in an attempt to impose “woke” ideology in the schools it controls. It’s been taken over by extremists, who will brook no challenge to their authority, legal or otherwise. It’s going to take strong measures to get rid of them. One can only hope the citizens of Loudon County have the guts and political will to do so, otherwise the jackboot will rest upon their necks forever.)

So, We’re Just Going to Ignore a Bunch of Green Warriors Who Tried to Storm the Department of the Interior?

It wasn’t the Capitol Building, but another insurrection occurred in Washington DC this week. Based on the liberal media’s rules, this was an attack on our democracy*, our principles, and it should shake us to our core. This isn’t who we are. Was this worse than 9/11? I don’t know. That’s what the establishment media thought of the January 6 riot. Are these domestic terrorists going to be arrested as well? Will there be a congressional committee to investigate how this heinous attack on our country occurred this week? Probably not. It was left-wingers. It was global warming activists who tried to storm the Department of the Interior building.

Soros Drops $1 Million on Anti-Police Effort in Austin

Left-wing billionaire George Soros is throwing at least a million dollars behind an effort to stop the hiring of hundreds of new police officers in Austin, Texas, according to campaign finance documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

The Hungarian-born political activist gave $500,000 through the Soros-backed Open Society Policy Center to a political action committee in opposition to a ballot initiative that forces the city to employ two police officers per 1,000 residents.

Soros’s donation, made on Oct. 12, is his second of the month and comes as Austin experiences a decades-high spike in violent crime. The city has seen at least 67 homicides this year, the highest since at least 1981. Aggravated assaults are also up at least 10 percent, following a 26 percent spike in 2020.

Walgreens is Abandoning San Francisco Because Leftist Policies Created a Shoplifting Crisis

Economics students learn in their 101 classes that basic markets can’t function without a few prerequisites — namely, the protection of private property rights. It’s an introductory concept because it’s almost self-evident: How can people do business if they’re not secure in their property and profits? Yet the furthest-left faction of today’s Democratic Party, which governs in the most liberal bastions such as San Francisco, has abandoned even this most basic lesson. And, just as econ 101 predicted, stores are abandoning the California city in droves.

Just this week, the pharmacy chain Walgreens announced that it will close five of its stores in San Francisco, citing theft and retail crime as the main motivator behind its decision.

Over 50% of Those Wanted by the Ottawa Police Have Muslim Names

The full wanted list is here. 6.7% of the population of Ottawa is Muslim, so Muslims are vastly overrepresented on the Wanted list.

What could account for this?

Justin Trudeau and other Canadian authorities would like say that it’s because of “Islamophobia”: Ottawa police disproportionately target Muslims out of “racism” and “Islamophobia.”

That is remotely possible, but it seems inconsistent with the Canadian character, which has always been welcoming of immigrants and tolerant of cultural differences.

Italy: Protests, Strikes as Green Pass Comes Into Force in Workplace

Disruption at 3 of 6 major ports, demos block Rome traffic

(ANSA) — ROME, OCT 15 — There were widespread protests and strikes in Italy Friday as the Green Pass health pass came into force in all Italian workplaces.

There was disruption at three of Italy’s six main ports.

The Green Pass shows that a person is vaccinated for COVID-19, has recovered from it or has tested negative in the last few days.

As of Friday the pass, which had been required for restaurants, cinemas and gyms, is mandatory for all workplaces in both the private and public sector.

In Trieste, some 2,000 dockers protested against the pass in a port expected to be brought to a standstill by the demonstrations.

But Friuli Governor Massimiliano Fedriga said the port was “working regularly”.

In Genoa, dockers halted operations at a major loading point but lorries headed for other points and a long tailback was eased.

In Ancona, access to the port was blocked by a workers’ sit-in.

But dockers worked normally in Venice, Naples and Palermo.

Meanwhile dozens of anti-pass protesters tried to block traffic in Rome, with varying degrees of success. Many of them were stopped by police.

Strikes hit several major firms including Electrolux, San Benedetto and Zoppas.

The Green Pass is the strictest vaccine mandate to be issued by any country.

Protests against it turned ugly in Rome last Saturday with a neofascist-led mob ransacking the headquarters of Italy’s largest and most leftwing trade union.

Italy: Police Bust ‘Citizenship Wage’ Benefit Scam

Salvini says benefit encourages cheats, raised issue with Draghi

(ANSA) — ROME, OCT 14 — Italian police said Thursday that they have busted a big gang that used false documents to illegitimately claim the ‘citizenship wage’ minimum-income benefit.

Police have reported 50 people to prosecutors.

The gang alleged used foreign nations from Austria, Germany and Romania to pick up the benefit cash at post offices in Milan.

League leader Matteo Salvini said Thursday that the ‘citizenship wage’ is prone to being exploited by fraudsters, adding that he had raised the issue with Premier Mario Draghi.

“I read that 50 people are under investigation and have been arrested because they came from Romania or Germany to get the citizenship wage,” Salvini told RAI radio.

“I spoke about this with Draghi because, in this way, the citizenship wage is a disincentive to work and it encourages fraudsters and tax dodgers”.

Police Raid on Christian Schools in Jiangsu

The Abeka Academy in Suzhou and a private school in Zhenjiang were the target. Dozens of people were arrested, including children and parents. Last month, the police took action against a Christian music school in Harbin. The government is cracking down on after-school courses.

Beijing (AsiaNews) — Police in Jiangsu made a series of arrests in connection with the activities of two Christian educational institutions, ChinaAid reports.

This points to a growing and coordinated effort by the government to crack down on Christian educational programmes.

On Tuesday, police in Suzhou arrested five representatives of the Abeka Academy, including the director of the Chinese branch Wang Jian.

Affiliated with the Pensacola Christian College in the United States, the academy offers home schooling courses around the world. The books provided by the Abeka Academy are based on the teachings of the Bible.

According to ChinaAid, local authorities deem the academy’s programme a violation of Article 24 of the Chinese Constitution. The fact that it is very popular among Chinese Christians is what prompted the police intervention.

The day after the raid, police also moved against a Christian school in Zhenjiang. Officers took 10 children, three teachers and three parents into custody. The pupils were released immediately, but as of last Thursday, nothing was known of the other detainees.

A similar action took place last month in Harbin (Heilongjiang) when police arrested all the staff and several students of the Maizi Higher Institute, a Christian music school. The school principal was among the people detained.

Since last spring, the authorities have imposed limits on private schools that offer after-school courses, a business worth US$ 118 billion in 2019, expected to grow to US$ 151 billion in 2025.

The question of a US military reaction in the event the Chinese government decides to make use of its military strength to reunify the island with the mainland has been the subject of intense policy debate for years. The US government has encouraged this debate, as its policy of “strategic ambivalence” was specifically formulated in order to prevent the need to make any promises that might need to be broken as well as to add an element of uncertainty to the Chinese leadership’s analysis of the situation.

However, it is abundantly clear that for all its posturing and strong words and saber-rattling, there is no chance that the US military will make any serious attempt to defend the independence of Taiwan island or to intervene in Chinese domestic affairs. There are seven reasons for this.

Muslim Grins as He is Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison for Plotting Jihad Massacres

Why did he grin? Could it be because he will be 29 at most when he is released, and can resume his jihad then? After all, nothing will be done while he is in prison to disabuse him of his jihadist sentiments. Any such effort would be “Islamophobic.”

Nigeria: Muslims Attack Catholic Seminary, Kidnap Students

Abduction of Infidels is sanctioned in Islamic law and subject to particular rules: “As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, ‘When you encounter those [infidels] who deny [the Truth=Islam] then strike [their] necks’ (Qur’an sura 47, verse 4)” — Al-Mawardi, al-Ahkam as-Sultaniyyah (The Laws of Islamic Governance).

But don’t be concerned. There is no doubt whatsoever that Pope Francis is on his way to Kaduna state now, in order to explain to these jihadis how they are misunderstanding their own religion, and that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.”

France to Vote on the Great Replacement of Western Civilization

“Where Islam takes hold, it is forever. Islamism is based on Islam, which no one has the right to criticize. But in your countries it also plays a role in democracy and in the rule of law. Islamism exploits these values. Since democracy recognizes all opinions, from the far right to the far left, it is obliged to recognize Islam as well. All those who do not commit attacks or violent acts are, in principle, protected in a state of law. Islamism thus immediately finds itself in a conquered terrain. It is necessary to fight Islamism from the beginning. Because it is like humidity in a house. Initially the threat is invisible, it penetrates the walls which, little by little, crumble. When you realize it is too late, you have to destroy everything to clean up. It becomes a mission impossible. France is at the stage where it has just discovered that Islam is eroding her home”.

This is how Algerian novelist Boualem Sansal, in L’Express, recently described the level of Islamization in France.

“In 2050 we will be a half-Islamic country, in 2100 we will be an Islamic republic”, according to Éric Zemmour, the journalist and presidential hopeful in 2022. This difficult but staggering reality denounced by Zemmour is recognized by everyone, even on the left. Radical left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon predicted the same kind of scenario, calling it “creolization by 2050”.

Balkanization is Going to Happen and Leftist Territories Will be Run by Psychotic Woke Warlords

This woman shamed a lesbian in getting therapy to acclimatize her into having penetrive sex with a man who identifes as a woman by claiming that a lesbian not wanting to have penetrive sex with a transwoman is transphobic violence.

Then this woman demands payment for her unsolicited psychological manipulation claiming racism and reparations.

This is the sort of psychological manipulation in which child soldiers were forced child soldiers to rape their mothers and shoot their fathers to prove loyalty to a war lord.

Can you share a country with this person? And imagine what she will do when she runs her own Woke fiefdom.

(ANSA) — ROME, OCT 14 — Pope Francis told Italian pharmacists Thursday that it was right to conscientiously object to abortion since it was “murder”.

Similarly, many Italian doctors refuse to perform abortions.

  1. I am reading the news about Balkanization from the section “Culture Wars” via Google-translate

    The schizoid nature of the text is superimposed on the schizoid nature of automatic translation. And I think “Am I out of my mind?”

  2. Soros and defund police. I think it is to be expected that he would be spending more on that in Republican states than Democrat ones to make Republicans look bad and lose the next election. Predictable strategy. If he could worsen inflation, jobs etc in Republican states he would do that too.

      • Tree of Freedom…
        “the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
        “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
