“Health Should Not be Political”: Packers’ Aaron Rodgers Deflects Hysteria About Being Unvaccinated in Lengthy Interview

The Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers tested positive for Covid and revealed to the world he was unvaccinated this week, despite previously leading on that he had been immunized.

Rodgers, who appeared on the Pat McAfee show to talk about his decision to not get vaccinated, said he was already feeling better and that he was following the same path for treatment that got Joe Rogan better within days: monoclonal antibodies, vitamins and ivermectin.

“I realize I’m in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now so before my final nail gets put in my cancel culture casket, I’d like to set the record straight on so many of the blatant lies out there,” he says at the onset of defending himself.

The child who was injured in the shooting was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The condition of the child was not made public…

Do Not Comply Under Any Circumstances

OSHA is a small agency. They have 1850 inspectors responsible for 130 million workers. They do not have the manpower to come after every business who refuses to comply with this tyranny. Business owners need to stand strong. Do not bend the knee, do not comply. They literally do not have the power to come after all of us.

If they fine you, ignore it. Don’t pay it. What are they going to do? Nothing. It will be one big ball of chaos and legal battles stretched out for years to come, but at least your employees with have their bodily autonomy and you will have your workforce to continue producing goods and services.

Eight Confirmed Dead at Travis Scott Concert in Houston

Eight people are dead and several others were injured after an incident at rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas, on Friday night, authorities said.

At around 9 p.m. or 9:15 p.m., the crowd “began to compress toward the front of the stage and that caused panic and people were getting injured,” Houston Fire Chief Sam Peña said at a press conference early Saturday morning.

Seventeen people were transported to hospitals, Peña said, adding 11 of these individuals were experiencing cardiac arrest.

He later said authorities transported 23 people throughout the day, including before the “mass casualty incident,” for “various medical issues,” and more than 300 patients were seen at the on-site field hospital throughout the day.

Here’s Everything America Gets for $1.2 Trillion in Infrastructure Spending — Including the Crazy Stuff

After Friday night’s 11th-hour vote in the House resulted in the passage of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill — thanks to 13 uniparty Republicans who joined the Congressional Black Caucus in short-sheeting House Progressives — the Wall Street Journal and Forbes have published refreshers of what what America is supposedly getting out of the largest investment in infrastructure in more than a decade.

From 10,000 feet, investments span refurbishing aging roads, bridges and ports, replacing lead pipes, upgrading and hardening the nation’s power grid, and of course — a healthy investment in ‘infrastructure’ to battle the ever-looming man-made climate change disaster that we’re told will turn coastal cities into a modern Atlantis.

They do understand. The policies were instituted to produce exactly the results we’ve seen, are seeing, and will see much more of. Villainy, not ignorance and not stupidity.

According to NBC Washington‘s Drew Wilder, Miyares and Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin will look to change Virginia law to give the Attorney General the authority to step in when local officials lose confidence in the commonwealth’s attorney to do an adequate job.

According to Wilder, Miyares, who was accompanied by Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman, says he intends to investigate sexual assault incidents in Loudoun County public schools.

Study Shows Dramatic Decline in Effectiveness of All Three COVID-19 Vaccines Over Time

Researchers who scoured the records of nearly 800,000 U.S. veterans found that in early March, just as the Delta variant was gaining a toehold across American communities, the three vaccines were roughly equal in their ability to prevent infections.

But over the next six months, that changed dramatically.

By the end of September, Moderna’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, measured as 89% effective in March, was only 58% effective.

The effectiveness of shots made by Pfizer and BioNTech, which also employed two doses, fell from 87% to 45% in the same period.

And most strikingly, the protective power of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine plunged from 86% to just 13% over those six months.

Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Case That Would Force Surveillance Court to Explain Bulk Data Collection

The clandestine Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), created under the Foreign Intelligence Service Act, determines the individuals that federal agencies can surveil. This week, the US Supreme Court refused to hear a case seeking to have the FISC explain the justifications for providing federal agencies with enormous amounts of people’s data.

The ACLU filed a case arguing that the First Amendment gave Americans the right to know the legal justifications for the bulk data collection by federal agencies. Lower courts ruled against the rights group, and the group brought the case to the Supreme Court after the High Court refused to review the rulings by the lower courts.

Seven out of the nine members of the Supreme Court’s bench refused to review the case.

The seven who refused to review the case did not explain their decision.

The two dissenting justices, Sonia Sotomayor and Neil Gorsuch did not understand why the court declined to review a case that has “profound implications for American’s privacy and their rights to speak and associate freely.”

96% more than the number of deaths caused by all non-CoVID vaccines, 1988-2021;

6 times the number of people murdered on 9/11;

37 times the average annual number of deaths from vaccines 2017-2020.

What is Luciferase?

Do the Big Pharma companies want to submit the vaccines to independent analysis? They do not! Do the Big Pharma companies want to disclose all the ingredients? They do not! Do the Big Pharma companies have any liability for lying to the public about the proprietary ingredients in their vaccines? They do not.

[…]

That’s why the COVID-19 pandemic is being used to force everyone to get the new vaccines. That’s why natural immunity doesn’t count to anyone in the medical community. That’s why religious exemptions have disappeared at your work, along with medical exemptions. That’s why Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine (and every other therapeutic drug) were swiftly outlawed. That’s why your 5 year old child will be “encouraged” and then coerced and then forced to take the jab, just as you were “encouraged” and then coerced and then forced to take the jab. That’s why the global vaccination campaign never stops when the already vaccinated start to get sick with COVID, or young boys suddenly die from heart inflammation, or world famous soccer players collapse on TV in the middle of games. That’s why health data (whether from Israel or Sweden or Florida or your local hospital) is totally irrelevant. The vaccine is being forced on everyone because the vaccine and the vaccine passport are the essential tools of a global surveillance system that will end everyone’s basic human freedom.

I agree with Lawdog. By accelerating the ongoing collapse of Afghanistan and making its fall inevitable, the Biden administration has condemned millions of Afghan girls to this fate, because their families will have no alternative. Afghanistan has always been a hotbed of tribalism, primitive superstition and ideological perversity. It was broken long before the USA conquered it, but we made little or no practical, fundamental, effective effort to change it. Now we’ve abandoned it pell-mell to fall back into its original state — and out of that will come new terrorist challenges to threaten the rest of the world.

But their support of mask exemptions and respect for people’s medical privacy has put a target on their back.

Shocking Conclusions From Africa Study Expose Why Big Pharma’s Puppets Are Suppressing Ivermectin Data

The final and arguably most important “hidden” takeaway from the study is that recovery and fatality rates for Covid-19 cases were not statistically significantly different between Ivermectin countries and non-Ivermectin countries. That means that once a person was tested and officially declared a Covid-19 case, they recovered or died at essentially the same rates across the board.

This tells us that other factors such as medical proficiency, environmental differences, or access to vaccines do not contribute to whether someone lives or dies once they have become sick with the disease. Since overall mortality rates per capita are significantly lower in Ivermectin nations but case fatality rates are the same, Ivermectin is clearly effective as an early treatment and perhaps even as a preventative measure.

‘Terrible, Terrible Accident’: Nearly 100 People Dead After Sierra Leone Tanker Blast

Nearly 100 people have died and the death toll is expected to rise after a fuel tanker exploded in Sierra Leone’s capital.

At least 99 people have been killed and a further 100 injured in the capital of Sierra Leone when a fuel tanker exploded following a collision, local authorities say.

Emergency crews worked to clear the scene on Saturday in the eastern Freetown suburb of Wellington where a burnt human body and the blackened shells of cars and motorbikes blocked the road following the crash, a Reuters reporter said.

The wounded were being treated in hospitals and clinics across the capital, deputy health minister Amara Jambai told Reuters.

Victims included people who had flocked to collect fuel leaking from the ruptured vehicle, Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, mayor of the port city, said in a post on Facebook, although that post was later edited to remove the reference…

Biden Sent 70 Secret Night Flights of Migrants From Border to Florida

More than 70 flights transporting migrants from the southern border to Jacksonville have landed in the dark of night in recent months as the Biden administration struggles to empty overflowing border facilities, the office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said.

Syrian Refugee Wounds Three in Knife Attack on German Train

Police were notified at approximately 9 AM local time of an attack unfolding on a high-speed ICE train traveling between the cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg. A suspect seriously injured three men and so far, one suspect has been arrested.

The 27-year-old Syrian man was arrested by police in Seubersdorf, where the train stopped after the attack, according to Bavarian state police statements to the Associated Press. Some local media sources are reporting the suspect had psychological problems. At the time of writing, police have no discernible motive for the brazen daylight attack near Neumarkt in the Upper Palatinate.

The Bavarian Red Cross is on-site with 110 first responders and said in a statement that it had processed three “severely injured” men who have all since been taken to hospital. Up to 300 people were removed from the train and taken to a local restaurant for refreshments, according to German broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk.

UK: Border Force is Refusing to Turn Back Migrant Boats Despite Priti Patel’s Vow Amid Fears More Will Die After a Record 853 Cross English Channel in One Day

In separate incidents this week, three migrants died trying to cross the channel.

Priti Patel announced her plan to turn back migrants in a Tory conference last month after she took legal advice, according to the Times.

Border Force has rejected requests to use Ms Patel’s new strategy, citing objections such as weather and size of boats being intercepted.

Officials said they do not think the policy will be implemented because of conditions which have to be met and the agency’s lack of support for it.

Media Outlets Campaign to Get Facebook to Censor Climate “Misinformation”

A series of articles have been appearing lately in Big Media, piling pressure on Facebook to step up censorship of what’s considered to be “climate misinformation” on the giant platform.

These reports published by the BBC, The Guardian, and The Verge — all citing and giving a lot of space to a study into climate-related content on Facebook produced by several fairly obscure advocacy groups — came shortly after Big Tech declared “climate misinformation” and “climate denial” to be its next censorship target.

The Left’s Weaponization of Language

The leftists’ strategy to bring about radical change is to create an issue such as systemic racism or transphobia, divide the world into oppressors and oppressed around that issue, and engage in disruptive protests until their demands are met.

Weaponizing language is part and parcel of this strategy. It’s all about controlling the narrative to move the country to the far left.

    I’ve heard a lot about this Caritas. In Italy, there was a high-profile case of how a migrant killed the priest Caritas.
    In Austria, the identityists held their protests outside the Caritas office.
