Italy’s Annual Inflation Rate 3.7% in November — ISTAT

(ANSA) — ROME, DEC 15 — Italy’s annual inflation rate was a whopping 3.7% in November, up from 3% in October, ISTAT said on Wednesday.

That was slightly lower than the preliminary estimate of 3.8% that the national statistics agency had given.

But it was still the highest level since September 2008, when the annual inflation rate was 3.8%.

ISTAT said the price rises were driving by higher energy costs.

It said its consumer-price index was up 0.6% in November in month-on-month terms.

It said its trolley index of everyday goods, such as food and household items, was up 1.2% in year-on-year terms in November, compared to 1% the previous month.

South Korea Raises 2022 Economic Growth Forecast After Strong 2021 Finish

South Korea expects to continue its solid economic recovery next year after finishing 2021 on a high note despite challenges from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The gross domestic product of Asia’s fourth-largest economy is expected to grow 3.1% in 2022, led by improving private consumption and brisk exports, the Ministry of Economy and Finance said in a semiannual report. That is up from the ministry’s previous forecast of 3.0% growth, with the services sector expected to recover at a faster pace and exports of memory chips likely to remain strong on increasing global trade.

Growth is expected to moderate from this year’s estimated 4.0% expansion, which is coming off a low base in 2020, when the economy contracted 0.9% — the weakest performance since the 1997-1998 Asian financial crisis — amid the worst of the pandemic.

‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Merchandise Sold in New Stores

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. — There are now three stores full of merchandise dawning the popular phrase “Let’s Go Brandon” in the Massachusetts area.

The store is located on North Washington Street in North Attleborough, Massachusetts near the Rhode Island line. Some of the merchandise includes hats, shirts, stickers, signs, and more.

Keith Lambert owns the stores. He said he is a Trump fan and started the New England For Trump (NEFT) site that also has a few stores.

He said there has been an overwhelming demand for “Let’s Go Brandon” merchandise so he decided to open stores just focusing on those items. He said he opened two stores just for the “Let’s Go Brandon” items and rebranded one of the NEFT stores. He even has a “Freedom Trailer” that can move around with merchandise.

Soros-Funded Los Angeles DA Gascon Blames Recall Bid on Fox News and Trump Voters

Embattled Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon blamed a bid to recall him on Trump supporters and Fox News in a three-paragraph rebuttal statement filed with the Los Angeles County Clerk’s Office.

“California DOES NOT NEED another political recall attempt sponsored by Donald Trump backers and frequent Fox News guests,” Gascon wrote. “This is not about keeping Angelenos safe, it’s about a political power grab by well-funded political operatives who have fought reforms — on juvenile detention, mental health treatment, police accountability in fatal police shootings, and the death penalty — for decades.”

Recall organizers launched a campaign Dec. 6 to oust the controversial district attorney, who was elected a year ago on a platform that focused more on rehabilitation and less on incarceration. Under his watch, misdemeanors are not prosecuted, and charges for violent crimes are downgraded. Critics say the results have been disastrous.

TORONTO — Stricter public health measures are once again in effect in Ontario as of Sunday, with capacity limits back in place in restaurants and a smaller cap on social gatherings.

No more than 10 people can attend indoor social gatherings — down from 25 — and there’s a maximum of 25 attendees at outdoor social gatherings, down from 100.

And cinemas, arenas and other large venues are no longer allowed to serve food or drinks.

Quebec to Reintroduce Mandatory Curfews and Lockdowns: Source

The Quebec government is considering reintroducing a curfew on its citizens due to the omicron variant, according to the Montreal Gazette.

French-language press outlets are reporting that the curfew would be set from 10 PM to 5 AM. 274 healthcare workers have caught coronavirus in the past 24 hours in the province.

Quebec will also deploy a two-week-long shutdown on all non-essential businesses. On top of this, they will reduce family gatherings to six.

The provincial government will also limit unnecessary surgeries, so that hospital beds can be freed up.

Premier Francois Legault has said that decisions will be made depending on “the capacity we will or will not have to treat sick Quebecers over the coming weeks.”

Denmark: Staggering Evidence of Vaccine Failure

In Denmark, detailed daily numbers about Covid cases and hospitalizations have been published and they cast a particularly gloomy light on vaccines against SARS-CoV-2, exposing media claims about their “life-saving” and “mitigating” properties as completely false.

The rise in Danish Covid hospitalizations over the last three months predates the outbreak of Omicron.

And as many astute observers have been suspecting, fear-mongering about the new variant Omicron is being used as a cover for this spectacular failure. Alex Berenson, an honest science reporter pointed out that even though Omicron appears to be significantly less dangerous though more transmissible than earlier variants of Covid, it “has been used as a cover for vaccine failure”.

European Union Launches Lawsuit Against Poland for Violating ‘Primacy’ of EU Laws

BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union on Wednesday launched legal action against Poland over recent decisions by one of the country’s top courts which have raised troubling questions about the 27-nation bloc’s legal order.

In October, Poland’s constitutional court ruled that Polish laws have supremacy over those of the EU in areas where they conflict. When countries join the EU, as Poland did in 2004, they must bring their laws into line with the bloc’s regulations. The European Court of Justice is supreme arbiter of those rules.

Germany: Buchenwald Uses 2G Rule to Exclude Visitors From Exhibition About… ‘Exclusion’

The former concentration camp Buchenwald implemented 2G rules thus excluding the unvaccinated from at an exhibition about… “The exclusion of people”.

From November 19, at the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora memorial sites, the “2G rule” has applied to visitors to the exhibitions. An online ticket is required to visit the exhibition at the Buchenwald concentration camp.

The Buchenwald Memorial hosts the permanent exhibition Buchenwald: Exclusion and Violence 1937 to 1945 in the former main building as well as the exhibition Soviet Special Camps No. 2 1945 to 1950 reopened for visitors.

However, due to their small size, other exhibitions and individual buildings have remained closed or, like the former crematorium, can only be visited as part of a guided tour.

The memorial which was supposed to convey the dangers of exclusion, is now itself setting an example for exclusion since 2G is controversial in Germany, even among pro-government virologists. “The so-called 2G model is part of the problem,” virologist Alexander Kekulé recently complained. “Those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered believe they are safe because they were told that until recently. But they also become infected to a considerable extent. As a result, we now have this massive wave among the vaccinated.”

“I don’t support that. I do not consider nuclear power to be the right technology. And that’s why the phase-out is right for Germany,” emphasized the Green Party co-leader on Monday.

This means that Germany will not get back to nuclear power under the current government. In this context, the minister for economic affairs also criticized the work of the previous government under Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU). According to Habeck, her government did not promote climate protection decisively enough.

German Ethics Council Approves Mandatory Vaccines

Germany’s Ethics Council on Wednesday said it was in favor of mandatory vaccinations for all adults over the age of 18.

National and state leaders asked the body for its assessment earlier this month, with Germany battling a fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

What was the Ethics Council’s decision?

A narrow majority, 13 out of 24, were in favor of the expansion of the mandate to all vaccine-eligible adults living in Germany. A larger number, 20 members, were in favor of the widening of an already existing mandate — in areas where particularly vulnerable people are being cared for — to all vulnerable individuals.

However, the body said it rejected the use of physical force.

Is Germany’s Restrictive 2G System for the Unvaccinated Based on a Lie?

To justify socially oppressive and economically harmful 2G COVID-19 restrictions on the unvaccinated, Peter Tschentscher, the left-wing mayor of Hamburg who is also a medical doctor, deliberately misled the public, citing patently false information which suggested nearly all of those infected with COVID-19 were unvaccinated, according to German media news reports.

Prominent lawmakers are now calling on Mayor Peter Tschentscher (SPD) to resign from his post after it was revealed that he used false data, which maintained 95 percent of the COVID-infected people in the Hanseatic city were unvaccinated, to justify the implementation of strict 2G restriction measures on the unvaccinated to purportedly curb the spread of the virus, Die Welt reports.

Recap COVID UK: Wales Brings in Tough Restrictions From Boxing Day Including Rule-of-Six

Wales has announced new Covid restrictions, including a ban on large events, which will come into force on Boxing Day.

The rules will bring back the Rule of Six, limiting social gatherings between different households to six people in pubs, restaurants, cinemas and other venues.

Bars will once again have to collect customers’ contact details and offer table service — and events will be capped to 30 people inside and 50 outside.

It comes after Boris Johnson cut the self-isolation period for Brits who catch Covid down to 10 days.

People who test positive will now be able to come out of self-isolation after a week — instead of 10 days — if their lateral flow test results are negative on day six and seven.

Meanwhile, the PM has promised he will not introduce further restrictions in England before Christmas, although he refused to rule out extra measures after December 25.

Romanian police handed over 117 fines worth 198,800 lei [40,000 euros] to participants in a protest organised on Tuesday by the extreme right-wing Alliance for the Union of the Romanians, AUR, and a couple of hundred supporters, against the possible introduction of mandatory so-called Green Certificates in the workplace.

During the protests outside parliament against the possible mandatory use of COVID-19 certificates by employees, four cars were vandalized and hundreds of protesters entered the courtyard by the main entrance.

Authorities say they are investigating several crimes — destruction of four vehicles, disturbance of public order and violation of professional headquarters.

‘Tyrannical’: Boosterless Europeans to Have Corona Passports Disabled

The EU has announced that vaccinated individuals who fail to get their booster are to have their Coronavirus passes disabled, in a move that has been called ‘tyrannical’.

UK: Tripled Vaxxed 4.5 Times More Likely to Test Positive for Omicron Than Unvaxxed

According to figures released by the UK government via the Office for National Statistics, people who are triple vaxxed are 4.5 times more likely to test positive for Omicron than those who are unvaccinated.

The numbers also illustrate how the double-vaccinated are 2.3 times more likely to be infected with Omicron than those who haven’t taken any jabs.

The data, which is summarized by the Daily Sceptic’s Will Jones in this article, bolsters assertions that the Omicron variant is effective at evading vaccines.

Vatican Reiterates ‘Favorable Position’ To Coronavirus Vaccines

ROME — The Vatican published a special communiqué Wednesday reaffirming its approval of the coronavirus vaccines to prevent possible confusion stemming from a separate text affirming that vaccines will not “solve the problem” of the pandemic by themselves.

“Following today’s publication of the new documents of the Vatican COVID-19 Commission and of the Pontifical Academy for Life,” reads the communiqué, “it seems appropriate to reaffirm the favorable position of the Holy See to vaccines.”

Wales: Absurd New COVID Rules Fine People for Going to Work, But They Can Go to the Pub

The absurdity of new COVID rules introduced in Wales was exposed after it was confirmed that people can now be fined for showing up to work but are still free to go on pub crawls.

“No person may leave the place where they are living, or remain away from that place, for the purposes of work or to provide voluntary or charitable services,” states new guidance issued by the government.

Those who flout the new ‘work from home’ rules, introduced in the name of stopping the spread of the Omicron variant, face fines of £60 for each infraction, while companies could be hit with fines of up to £10,000.

Gov’t Slaps on New COVID Restrictions as Omicron Cases Surge

After a three-and-a-half hour meeting on Tuesday night, the coronavirus cabinet slapped a series of new restrictions on Israelis to help combat rising cases of coronavirus in Israel.

However, new strict rules that would have limited gathering failed to pass due to opposition by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and other cabinet members to the request of the Health Ministry.

Beginning as soon as the Knesset approves the regulations, malls will operate according to a strict Purple Ribbon outline, limiting shoppers to one person for every 15 sq.m.

Moreover, entry into stores, including in malls, of more than 100 sq.m. will require a Green Pass. Food courts will be closed to diners and takeaway only available for people with Green Passes.

Restaurants in malls will continue to operate as usual, but diners will need to present a Green Pass, too.

Only places that provide essential goods and services will not require a Green Pass.

The school system will also take a hit. In areas labeled as red and orange, classrooms where fewer than 70% of the students are vaccinated, they will have to learn from home.

Saudi Dissident Arrest Raises Questions About Twitter Collaboration

Saudi Arabia jailed a dissident after linking him to anonymous Twitter accounts, raising alarms about the social media giant’s relationship with the authoritarian state.

The Saudi government sentenced Ali Abu Luhum, a Yemeni citizen, to 15 years in prison for promoting “apostasy, unbelief, and atheism” on Twitter. Saudi officials linked anonymous Twitter accounts to phone numbers connected to Abu Luhum, according to Human Rights Watch. It is unclear how they made the connection, since the phone numbers were not publicly displayed.

‘Withdraw Troops From Poland’ — Putin’s Latest Ultimatum to NATO

Russia has prepared two draft agreements concerning “security guarantees” between itself and the United States, as well as between Moscow and NATO members which, if signed, would see the withdrawal of NATO troops from Poland. But what are these documents about, exactly?

Center for Eastern Studies expert Marek Menkiszak warns in his analytical text, Russian Blackmail Towards the West, that with its recent aggression “the Kremlin has made the decision to undertake an attempt to essentially change the status quo in the security and political spheres of Europe, through one-sided activities meant to inflame the international situation, also through military actions.”

China Planning the Ultimate Genocide; Biden Responding With Empty Words

The next disease from China could be a civilization-killer. China’s military is working on the next generation of pathogens, a new kind of biological warfare of “specific ethnic genetic attacks.” In other words, Chinese researchers are developing viruses, microbes, and germs that leave China’s people immune but kill everyone else.

President Joe Biden on December 15 “smirked and walked away” when a reporter wanted to know why he has not asked Beijing “to do more to be transparent on the origins” of COVID-19.

China’s coronavirus has now killed more than 806,400 Americans, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.

China lied about the contagiousness of COVID-19 and then, while locking down China, pressured other countries to take arrivals from its soil without restrictions or quarantines.

The spread of the disease outside the People’s Republic, therefore, was the inevitable result of Chinese policies. In other words, China’s leaders have now deliberately killed more than 5.3 million people outside their country.

The President did not raise the issue of the disease’s origins during his two-hour phone call with Chinese ruler Xi Jinping in February. Nor did he talk about it during their three-and-a-half-hour “virtual meeting” in November. It does not appear Biden discussed the matter during a 90-minute phone call in September with Xi.

“The world deserves answers, and I will not rest until we get them,” Biden said in an August 27 statement, as he released a summary of the findings of the U.S. intelligence community on the disease’s origins…

South Korean Businesses Protest Against Return of Strict COVID Rules

SEOUL (Reuters) — Some 300 South Korean small business owners protested in Seoul on Wednesday over the return of strict social distancing rules, urging the government to compensate them for financial losses and scrap its “vaccine pass” policy.

South Korea restored tough distancing curbs this week after easing them in November, as new infections and serious cases continue to make new records and stretch medical services, despite a vaccination rate of over 92%.

The measures, effective until Jan. 2, include a 9 p.m. dining curfew and a ban on gatherings of more than four people, who have to be fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated people can only eat out alone, or should use takeout or delivery options.

Omicron Discoverer Perplexed by Hysterical Global Response

For weeks now, the newly discovered Corona variant Omicron has been misused by politics and the mainstream media to spread even more fear and panic. The doctor who discovered this variant does not understand the overreaction in Europe and warned that this could lead to a missed opportunity.

The disease is mild and the spread of Omicron could lead to natural immunity in the population. That would be an advantage if new variants emerge again. Lockdowns would, however, prevent this positive development.

The South African doctor Dr. Angelique Coetzee reported the first Omicron case and treated it. In an article in the British newspaper Daily Mail the doctor was surprised at the exaggerated reaction to the variant in Europe. “Let me be clear: nothing I’ve seen in this new variant justifies the extreme measures the British government has taken in response,” said Coetzee, shocked after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged people to “think carefully” before attending Christmas parties and social events.

  1. “French First Lady Brigitte Macron Sues Over Conspiracy Theory That She is Transgender”

    I have a conspiracy theory: I have seen some compelling evidence that Obama is a transgender woman, and Michael is a transgender man… There are some features that differentiate us, men and women, like the Adam’s apple, or the point where the waist is thinnest women have thin waist much higher then men) + the fact that Obama acts as a butch lesbian + the problems with “his” birth certificates, etc… And now old Briggite is suspected to be a man…?

    BRIGITTE MACRON IS A MAN HIS REAL NAME IS JEAN MICHEL TROGNEUX
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/JS9XIIQfnU1i/

    So – to my conspiracy theory: Would it not be a great cover for these useful idiots to be an opposite gender then their “political identity”? Down is up and up is down, you know the tune… And if SHTF, then they just switch their “gender” and are out… What a cover!

    The fish stinks from its head: I have long suspected that the James Bond movies, popularizing “womanizing” were in fact a protection measure by the powers that be against blackmail. If a high politician got caught with a prostitute 70 years ago – it would have been such a shame! But the movie industry fixed that it’s not such a shame anymore. After that the blackamail came for the gays and transgenders, which is being fixed now… And we already get the glimpse what comes after that: The normalisation of Pedophilia…

    It’s just a thought how and why do we see so many transgenders in top positions and why such behavior is being “normalised”.

  2. Czechia’s Population is Declining Due to COVID-19, Lack of Children, And Migration

    Much like the rest of Europe, the population of the Czech Republic is declining.

    At the end of September 2021, Czechia had 20,000 fewer inhabitants than at the beginning of the year. In addition to excessive mortality, the population decline is also due to lower birth rates and a significant drop in incoming foreign employees.

    At the end of the third quarter of this year, Czechia had a population of almost 10.7 million.

    We had only 10 million when I was a kid, so it’s no big deal. And decline of immigration? That’s a good sign!

  3. “CHANNEL migrants could be electronically tagged when they land in Britain, we can reveal.”

    They could be turned around and sent back, too, but we all know, it’s not going to happen.
    Who exactly is calling the shots here?

    • Sent back? Why in the hell would you throw good money after bad? Bullets are cheap and effective. Your civilized way of dealing with uncivilized savages only gets you and yours killed because you wanted to take the high moral ground only to be bloody buried in it.

  4. Theme for the season:

    “we now have this massive wave among the vaccinated.”

    Alexander Kekulé, virologist, Germany (above)

  5. New..Putin’s ultimatum to NATO: ‘Withdraw troops from Poland!’ …words from Putin, who has said for the first time he’s ready to deploy the military if Russia doesn’t get what it wants from NATO.
    His money spent on read out of Trump and weakening America and Alies ,where well used..
    Soviet Russia since Soviet collapse hasn’t have better opportunity to damage USA and US interest in Europe..
    Winner are German Empire in a proces of making and Soviet Russia..Booth terrorizing Europe and World again..
    So much about securing support from Russia policy in hypothetical War with China..
    Toothless Russia can blackmail you and dictate you own political polices and Interest, and you keep dreaming to go to War with China ??
    US become laughing stock..

    • Putin wants a replay of the 1945 Yalta agreement (in Russia they even speak of “Yalta 2.0”). In this new version, the United States and Russia (this time excluding Britain) would carve out spheres of influence in Europe..
      Poland is in a difficult geopolitical situation. The U.S. wants to draw Russia to its side against China. If this works out, Russia will demand some kind of payment. What will it be? We need to remind ourselves of history. Poland must arm up and build a coalition of states which will not accept another Yalta..
      Putin’s current policy is reminiscent of that conducted by Leonid Brezhnev, and that what the U.S. is currently proposing “reeks of another Yalta.”
      The Yalta conference saw much of Europe carved up between the great powers in preparation for the end of the Second World War. The allies recognized that the USSR had a sphere of influence over much of Eastern Europe, and essentially green lit the Soviets taking control of Poland.

  6. While the U.S. conducted unproductive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and wasted massive sums on them, China had been quietly gaining power, especially through its industry, its domestic economy, and through foreign expansion. Due to its efforts, China has begun to exceed the U.S. in these areas.

    Some believe that Trump had started the trade war against China too late. U.S. elites have decided to oppose China’s growing power: that they must concentrate on China in the Pacific. Due to this, they will have a smaller presence in Europe. And if U.S. presence will be smaller in Europe, then it will be a good opportunity to act for Putin

  7. The Danish data on vaccinated now getting Covid more easily than unvaccinated is a very dangerous sign that we may now have ADE, “Antibody dependant enhancement” whereby the antibodies created by the vaccine actually help to kill us not save us.
    “In general, virus-specific antibodies are considered antiviral and play an important role in the control of virus infections in a number of ways. However, in some instances, the presence of specific antibodies can be beneficial to the virus. This activity is known as antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) of virus infection. The ADE of virus infection is a phenomenon in which virus-specific antibodies enhance the entry of virus, and in some cases the replication of virus, into monocytes/macrophages and granulocytic cells through interaction with Fc and/or complement receptors.”
    With ADE we may see vaccinated dying more frequently than vaccinated.
    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12725690/

    Vaccines which have done this in the past have been banned. It will be a mess and their answer will be more vaccines.
