Foreign Minister: Hungary Economy Back at Pre-Pandemic Levels

A year and a half after the first outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, Hungary’s economic output has returned to pre-pandemic levels, Péter Szijjartó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said on Thursday.

Getting the economy back to normal by the summer required Hungary’s government to find allies that were prepared to expand their capacities even in such a difficult period, the foreign ministry cited Szijjartó as saying at the Business Services Hungary 2021 conference.

“It Would be Crazy” To Kill Myself: Newly Released Federal Bureau of Prisons Records Reveal That Jeffery Epstein Was “Future-Oriented and Psychologically Stable” Before He Allegedly Committed Suicide in His Cell

Newly released Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) records that were obtained by the New York Times revealed how child sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein had repeatedly denied suicidality and had been deemed “cooperative,” “future-oriented,” “goal-directed,” and “psychologically stable” by medical staff in the days leading up to his alleged suicide.

According to the over 2,000 BOP documents, which included extensive and detailed psychological examination records, Epstein “adamantly” told prison psychologists that he had “no interest in killing himself,” even adding that he “would not do that” to himself anyway because he is a “coward” who is afraid of pain.

Affidavit Says Wisconsin Attacker Tried to ‘Hit as Many’ People as Possible

The Christmas parade killer in Waukesha drove in a zig-zag pattern to “hit as many” people as possible, according to a court affidavit against the suspect, Darrell Brooks, confirming that the massacre appeared to be deliberate.

Despite all efforts by mainstream media to downplay the attack as a mere “accident,” “incident,” or even “crash,” all evidence would suggest that the vehicular attack on the annual Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, was motivated by Brooks’ extremist political views in which he voiced his support for Black Lives Matter and expressed violent hatred for white people, as detailed by Rebel News.

Alan Dershowitz Warns the Justice System is Becoming Infected With CRT

Critical race theory has infected many aspects of American life.

It is being taught in some areas of the US government, it is being taught in some school systems in the United States and it is being pushed by corporations on their employees.

One mother who had been from the Soviet Union issued a warning about critical race theory pointing out that it is dangerous.

She argued that it is “actually a tyrannical Soviet ideology.”

Now, we have this.

Alan Dershowitz joined John Solomon’s podcast to issue a warning about the American justice system.

CNN Reports Study Questioning Climate Change Models on Thanksgiving Day When Few Are Following News

I have often posted that the models used to tie man to climate change were not only bogus but impossible to be correct. There is no way for the model designers to understand all the factors influencing Earth’s climate. A new report proves that the climate models are wrong—it was big news and CNN even reported it. Of course, they chose to report it on Thanksgiving when people aren’t following the news. questioning climate change models

CNN is still called a news network, although it’s an incorrect description. The network decided that a bombshell report that questions anthropogenic (human-induced) climate change and the models that we are currently using to guide policy and funding should be reported on Thanksgiving Day. When people watch football, the first wave of Christmas specials, or stuffing their faces with turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and other food goodies.

On Wednesday, the journal Science Advances published a new study of Arctic water temperature that has determined that the warming has been occurring decades earlier than the “scientific consensus” had believed.

Covered in Blood: Man Stabbed to Death at Brooklyn Apartment Building

His blood was everywhere: On the doors, the sidewalk, even smeared across the windows of a Brooklyn apartment building’s lobby on Black Friday.

They were the last marks of a man who had been fatally stabbed in Bay Ridge and apparently collapsed in front of the location, according to police.

Law enforcement sources said the incident happened at about 2:51 p.m. on Nov. 26 at The Dorset building located at 303 99th St.

Officers from the 68th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call of a man bleeding at the location, found the victim in front of the location. Police said he was unconscious and unresponsive, and had been stabbed multiple times about his body.

The man’s blood covered much of The Dorset’s front entrance. Sources familiar with the investigation could not confirm the exact location of where the victim had been attacked, but detectives are reviewing security camera footage to piece together the answers…

‘Dark Money’ Organization May Have Helped Biden Win

A shadowy non-profit known as the Voter Participation Center reportedly spent over $100 million ahead of the 2020 presidential election to attract hundreds of thousands of votes from those considered likely to support Joe Biden.

The Washington-based group raised $85 million and spent an even larger amount delivering millions of mail and digital notifications to voters during 2020, The Hill reported this week. Accessing the group’s tax filings, the news outlet noted that last year’s spending dwarfed the $14 million it spent during the previous election in 2016.

Although the Voter Participation Center (VPC) does not explicitly campaign for specific candidates, it targets younger voters, minorities and unmarried women — all of whom traditionally favor Democrats but typically generate below-average turnouts.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. On the Building Totalitarian State: “This is Armageddon. This is the Final Battle. We Need to Win This One.” (Video)

James Corbett recently talked with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr of ChildrensHealthDefense.org about his new bestselling book, The Real Anthony Fauci.

James Corbett argued, “We are in the fight for our life. We are in the most profound peril towards human liberty that we have seen in our lifetime.”

Robert Kennedy Jr. responded: “I will go even further than you just went. I think this is historical jeopardy to humanity than we’ve ever seen before. We’ve seen the Black Plague and World War II, arguably rivals for it. I would argue that this is the worst thing that ever happened to humanity because the essential ambition of the totalitarian state is to control not just conduct but self-expression and thought. And for the first time in history because of the technological revolution, the capacity for totalitarian forces to literally control every aspect of human expression and even human thought is now unprecedented… This is Armageddon… This is the final battle. We need to win this one.”

The Life and Crimes of Accused Waukesha Christmas Parade Killer Darrell Brooks

MILWAUKEE — The man who turned a quaint, small town Christmas parade into a blood-soaked nightmare that left six dead and over 60 injured is a career criminal who’s spent more than half of his life trapped in a revolving door of incarceration, drug abuse and violence.

Darrell Brooks, 39, allegedly used a red Ford Escape to plow through revelers at an annual Christmas celebration in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday, but his life of crime started 22 years ago when he was just 17 years old.

Over the next two decades, Brooks would proceed to wreak havoc across three states as he racked up convictions for abusing his partners, raping and impregnating a teenager and a consistent streak of other violent crimes.

Canada Releases 50 Million Pounds From Maple Syrup Reserve Amid Global Shortage

The Biden administration is trying to reign in gas prices by releasing oil from the US strategic reserve — but a different sticky supply situation north of the border has spurred Canadians to tap their emergency stockpile of maple syrup amid a major shortage of the sweet stuff.

The Quebec Maple Syrup Producers is a government-sponsored cartel that controls some 70 percent of the world’s maple syrup supply and is sometimes compared to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ grip on oil.

The consortium of more than 11,000 Canadian maple syrup producers said this week that a warmer— and shorter-than-expected spring led to a 24 percent year-over-drop in production of the pancake topping.

‘If We Don’t Have Bodily Autonomy, We’ve Lost it All’: Thousands Rally Against Globalism in Vancouver

This past Saturday, over 1,000 pro-freedom and anti-globalism protesters rallied outside of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Attendance at the rally is estimated to have been smaller in comparison to previous freedom world rally’s in Vancouver due to the road closures that surrounded the Lower Mainland after intense flooding and mudslides occurred across the province.

So the fact that the three men won yesterday is not only a great victory in itself, but it’s a signal, I believe, that this atrocious sentence will be properly torn to ribbons in June.”

It has been the subject of protests — especially since the Swiss government stopped providing free COVID-19 tests. Critics have alleged it’s effectively a vaccine passport.

Bangkok Citizen Locked Out of Country for Social Media Posts Criticizing Thai Royalty

A Frenchman who has lived in Thailand for over 18 years was denied re-entry and will be deported back to France. The 49-year-old man is well known for social media posts making fun of the Thai leadership.

Yan Marchal rose to fame in 2019, when he posted a video mocking a song by the National Council for Peace and Order, the military junta that was ruling Thailand at the time. Within a day of posting the video, it had more than 1 million views. However, the police ordered him to remove it.

After returning to Thailand from France, he was told by immigration officials that he was banned from entering the country because the government viewed him as a threat to national security. According to the Bangkok Post, he said that he was also served with a legal notice claiming that he was a potential danger to the public.

Scottish Schoolgirls ‘Boycott Gender-Neutral Toilets’

The introduction of gender-neutral toilets in Scottish schools hasn’t panned out as activists hoped, with girls in one school reportedly refusing to use the facilities due to misbehaviour and vandalism by boys.

Gender-neutral bathrooms are becoming increasingly common in Scottish educational institutes. Schools in Angus, Dundee, East Renfrewshire and Edinburgh have all introduced such facilities, and all new school buildings — primary and secondary — in Edinburgh will soon have unisex toilets and communal hand-washing facilities by default. This move to gender neutrality is supported by Scottish National Party politicians and by the Scottish Equality and Human Rights Commission, which warned schools in 2019 that they leave themselves open to lawsuits by not providing such facilities.

    • Sorry mathoney, but while I envy those who have a faith, I cannot share it, and I won’t be a hypocrite, except for funerals, which are becoming all too frequent as I get older; since 2019 I’ve been to Jewish, Anglican, Humanist and Catholic ones. If you will forgive my levity, I liked the Jewish one because only the Cantor sang, and he could (my late Jewish friend would appreciate the joke), and the Humanist one because no-one did.

      Besides, like Robert A Heinlein, I’ve got no time for a god who wants to be worshipped; also God loves atheists as we don’t bother him with requests.

      As the composer Johannes Brahms said to his hostess when leaving a dinner party, “Is there anyone I’ve forgotten to offend?”
