Gableman, who was previously a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, was asked by Speaker of the Wisconsin state Assembly Robin Vos to lead an investigation into the 2020 election in the state. Gableman agreed and was appointed as special counsel.

Carjackings Sweep Through Twin Cities Communities

The armed carjackings spreading fear across the Twin Cities are frequent, brazen and often violent.

Assailants are ambushing victims in grocery store parking lots, bustling intersections and, in some cases, even as motorists park in the garage of their home. Just last week in the Crocus Hill neighborhood of St. Paul, a mother had to rush to pull her child from the backseat as three armed teenagers stole her car.

The attacks are occurring almost daily in Minneapolis and St. Paul, at all hours and in many different neighborhoods. Minneapolis police have reported more than 600 attempted or successful carjackings this year, a crime they didn’t even track until a few years ago because they were so rare.

CBP Reviews Secret Division That Kept Databases on Journalists and Politicians

In early December, Yahoo News reported on Operation Whistle Pig, a leaked investigation into Senate staffer James Wolfe and Politico reporter Ali Watkins, who were dating at the time. The investigation was conducted by members of the CBP’s Counter Network Division to determine whether Wolfe provided classified intel to Watkins and other journalists.

Following the report by Yahoo News, the CBP has launched a review of the Counter Network Division. According to Yahoo News, the secretive division “uses some of the country’s most sensitive databases to investigate the travel and financial records and personal connections of journalists, members of Congress and other Americans not suspected of any crimes.”

D.C. Jail Cuts J6 Prisoners’ Communications After Newsmax Interview

Jacob Lang has been awaiting trial without bail in the D.C. jail for his involvement in the January 6 riot at the Capitol for almost a year, along with many others who have been charged with crimes connected to that day. With no trial date in sight, he and his fellow inmates languish in a jail they say is inhumane. The J6 prisoners’ complaints about filthy conditions and inhumane treatment resulted in a surprise inspection that found everything they were saying was true. As a result, over 400 prisoners were moved to different facilities—none of them J6 prisoners.

Lang has been in contact with PJ Media and several other media sources and was recently giving an interview on Newsmax TV when the jail cut off his phone access. Afterward, Lang reported to PJ Media that the jail took away all access to the internet and cut off phone privileges for all the detainees. They are now on lockdown and Lang says he’s not even able to call his lawyer.

Hello, 911? Brand New NYC Mayor’s Crime-Fighting Skills Come in Handy His First Hour on the Job

Well, it didn’t take long for newly minted New York City Mayor and former cop Eric Adams to figure out what his top priority is: crime fighting and being his constituents’ punching bag.

NYC headed back to the bad old days during the disastrous Bill de Blasio administration.

At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, New Yorkers got a chance to turn the page on their beloved city.

Hours after taking his oath of office, Adams headed to work his first full full day on the job. As he stood with his security team, an observer took video of the NYC mayor watching three men punching each other in a brawl. Adams called 911 to get the uniforms out there to stop it.

How Five Liberal Prosecutors Presided Over Crime Waves

Liberal prosecutors across the country have overseen significant crime waves in America’s major cities this year — and have largely stood by their aggressive reforms.

The district attorneys came into office vowing to address the inequality they say plagues much of the criminal justice system, to much fanfare from the Left.

However, few have acknowledged the seeming link between their departure from the prosecutorial status quo and the rise in violence.

Here is how some of the most radical district attorneys have reshaped law enforcement in their cities.

New Orleans Imposes Vaccination Mandate for Children Age 5 and Older

New Orleans will require 5-year-olds to show proof of COVID-19 vaccinations to enter restaurants, skating rinks, arcades and other public places, starting Monday.

Mayor LaToya Cantrell said she is implementing the policy “to keep the omicron variant at bay,” amid surging cases in Orleans Parish. Most of southeast Louisiana is currently labeled high risk, according to the Louisiana Department of Health.

The city’s vaccine passport system already ranks among the most stringent public health protocols in the country, alongside New York City and San Francisco. Residents and visitors have had to show proof of vaccination or negative tests to enter businesses and government buildings since August, including children age 12 and older.

New York COVID Testing and Treatment: White People Need Not Apply

Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed of a day when people would be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. That day has not yet dawned in New York, at least when it comes to Covid testing and treatment. On December 27, the New York State Department of Health issued a memo to health care providers and facilities on the authorization and “severe shortage” of oral antiviral and monoclonal antibody treatments for Covid, directing that non-white people be given priority for such treatments. Meanwhile, white people are also being passed over for Covid testing in New York City.

Roberts in Annual Report Says Judges Must Do Better to Avoid Financial Conflicts of Interests

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts says in this year’s annual report on the high court that the federal judiciary must do more to ensure judges don’t participate in cases in which they have financial conflicts of interest.

In the nine-page report released Friday evening, Roberts focused on a series of recent Wall Street Journal stories that found from 2010 to 2018, “131 federal judges participated in a total of 685 matters involving companies in which they or their families owned shares of stock.”

Federal judges and Supreme Court justices are required under a federal ethics law to recuse themselves from cases in which they have a personal financial interest, according to the Associated Press.

“Let me be crystal clear: the Judiciary takes this matter seriously,” Roberts wrote. “We expect judges to adhere to the highest standards, and those judges violated an ethics rule.”

Terrified Beverly Hills Residents Flock to Buy Guns From City’s Only Firearms Store as La Crime Soars Thanks to Woke Da’s Policies

As Long Angeles crime spirals out of control, even some of the city’s wealthiest residents have flocked to Beverly Hills’ only gun store to buy firearms to protect themselves and their belongings.

Beverly Hills Guns first opened by appointment only in July 2020, and has seen upscale residents from Santa Monica to the Hollywood Hills increasingly in a panic following some high-profile smash and grabs and violent home invasions in recent weeks, Los Angeles Magazine reports.

Many are self-proclaimed progressives who’ve never even held a gun before, but who’ve been so spooked by soaring crime in the famously wealthy enclave that they’ve decided to arm themselves.

The Illinois Holocaust Museum Wants to Introduce Vaccine Passports

The Illinois Holocaust Museum has announced it will introduce a requirement to show a vaccine passport to enter, creating strong backlash.

“To ensure Illinois Holocaust Museum is as safe as possible for visitors, volunteers, and staff, the Museum will require all guests ages 5+ to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to enter the building as of January 5, 2022,” the announcement reads.

The museum is one of many venues that have turned their back on civil liberties over the last two years.

“I remember visiting the Holocaust Museum when it was in a very humble building on Main Street in Skokie. It was a hard, but deeply meaningful experience as a child. Please reconsider this policy. The unvaxxed aren’t uniquely dangerous. This is so troubling,” one user replied on Twitter.

Faroe Islands: Tested, Isolated, Boosted Group Infected With Omicron

A private meeting among the vaccinated mutated into a super-spreader event demonstrating how Covid vaccines do not protect against infection.

It is a small island state in the North Atlantic with around 50 000 inhabitants: the Faroe Islands. At the beginning of December, no Omicron infections were recorded there. That changed when 33 caregivers got together for a private meeting. All of them had been boosted.

“In the following days, many of the participants developed clear Covid symptoms,” reported Report24. Despite having had the triple vaccination, the participants fell ill: “In the end, there was a total of 21 infected people. That corresponds to an infection rate of 63,6 percent.” All had had a negative Covid test 36 hours before the meeting. None of the people affected had to be treated in the hospital, because all of them — as is typical for Omicron — only showed mild symptoms.

Omicron and Faulty Tests Severely Disrupt Trains in Italy

The website of Italy’s national rail operator posted warnings of severely disrupted services: “For the activities related to the organization of the services, changes in the timetable of the regional trains can be expected after controls provided by anti-Covid regulations,” noted Trenitalia and listed at least 16 regions affected by the serious problem.

Positive Corona test results have led Trenord to forcibly cancel journeys, so that large parts of the train traffic in Lombardy had to be rescheduled due to massive staff shortages. According to trade unions, staff shortages have become quite common regardless of Italy’s return to “normal” with the “green pass”.

Pandemic restrictions, which lead to a mad run on test centers in order to obtain “green passports”, have become an own goal for the government, according to Gospa News. They have given employees who would like to stay at home during the holidays the opportunity propose contact with an Omicron “infected person”, “infect” themselves and thus to go into quarantine.

Two Gaza Rockets Fall in Sea Off Tel Aviv Coast, Israeli Military Says

Two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel on Saturday, but fell into the Mediterranean Sea, the Israeli military said, after blasts were heard in central Israel.

The rockets fell off the coast of Tel Aviv. No casualties or damage were reported.

Witnesses in Gaza verified they had seen a rocket launch from within the Gaza City, however there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the rocket firing from any militant groups.

According to a source in Hamas told a Palestinian news agency that stormy weather in Gaza caused a malfunction which triggered the launch of the rockets. A Hamas source, however, said “it wasn’t clear who had launched the rockets, if any were launched.”

Anticipating Israeli retribution, Hamas has warned Egypt — which often mediates between the group and Israel — that a disproportionate response would lead to escalation. A Hamas official quoted in Palestinian media said on the group has evacuated several military sites in the Strip…

India Investigates Apple’s App Store Practices on Antitrust Grounds

On Friday, the Indian antitrust watchdog, the Competition Commission of India (CCI), ordered an investigation into Apple’s anti competitive practices in the App Store, where it requires app developers to use its own payment system for in-app purchases and charges a 30% commission. In India, the iPhone maker has only 2% of the smartphone market share.

The CCI gave the Director General 60 days to investigate the issue. The antitrust watchdog feels Apple’s in-app payments policy “restrict[s] the choice available to the app developers to select a payment processing system of their choice especially considering when it charges a commission of up to 30% for app purchases and in-app purchases.”

  1. Czech. A 20-year-old Afghan, who came to Karlovy Vary from Germany for the New Year holidays, first attacked a woman, stabbing her several times in the stomach and chest, and then raped an 18-year-old girl. He was detained, an investigation is underway.
    The crimes took place in the area of the station.

    Russia. In Troitsk, a migrant almost raped a mother of two children. The woman was saved by a casual passer-by who decided to walk down the street on New Year’s Eve. An eyewitness said that the migrant then begged him: “Brother, forgive me!”
    This time Pavel himself changed his habits and decided not to get enough sleep at home from work, but to take a walk on New Year’s Eve. This is what saved the woman from being raped. Seeing an attempt to abuse a stranger in the parking lot, a passer-by rushed to rescue the victim of the migrant.
    Pavel said that he himself has an 18-year-old daughter and he wants “to live in a city, a country without rapist migrants who decided that they can do whatever they want with us here.” The eyewitness especially infuriated that after the incident the same migrant, caught red-handed, begged him: “Brother, forgive me!”
    Pavel himself could hardly restrain himself in response so as not to lynch the migrant worker who attacked the woman: “What kind of brother am I to him ?! How much hypocrisy and fear.”
    The migrant was then handed over to the police.

  2. Dr. Shankara Chetty:
    Spike Poison and the Covid Agenda

    Dr. Shankara Chetty is a general practitioner with a scientific background in genetics, advanced biology, microbiology and biochemistry. Since the beginning of the covid crisis, he has analyzed how the world is handling the covid crisis. Dr Chetty believes that there is a covid agenda that is about controlling the world population.
    Interview by Dr. Naseeba Kanthrada
    “This plan is to make sure that we can control and kill off a large proportion of our population without anyone suspecting that we were poisoned. So I think the justification for everything we see is warranted in understanding the endgame.”
    Dr. Shankara Chetty is a general practitioner with a natural science background in genetics, advanced biology, microbiology, and biochemistry. From the start of the Covid pandemic. He has been critically watching the information arising from observations around the world.

    • I mean, are you serious? Even my dog knows this by now.

      The only reason DOCTORS are writing this now is that they know we are coming for them.

      [Fundament] covering wont protect your neck!

      • Dawg,

        I’m getting tired of redacting your profanities, vulgarities, and insults of your fellow commenters. Your flouting the rules of civil discourse has reached and exceeded my limits of tolerance.

        Be warned: If you don’t clean up your act, I’ll delete all your comments without reading them. It will be much easier, and save me a lot of wasted time.

  3. It is amazing how that virus reached those remote and poorly populated islands in the north Atlantic. I bet cultural( epidemic) enrichement can only have played a minor role.

    • It gets even more amazing.

      “Two-thirds of the 25 staff based in Belgium’s Polar Station infected with Covid despite being fully vaccinated, passing multiple PCR tests, quarantining, and living miles from civilization.”

  4. Be aware that hundreds of thousands of unnecessary DEATHS have occurred because doctors and hospitals have REFUSED to treat CCP virus/ CVD early on when people get it.

    That’s right- if you get CVD and start having symptoms and go to the hospital or doctor, most likely they will tell you go home, take some aspirin and wait till it gets bad enough to go to the hospital.

    If you do that, there is a very strong likelihood you will not make it out of the hospital unless it’s in a body bag.

    The Market Ticker guy does it again. This article includes a suggested LAW that should be passed IMMEDIATELY in every state of the Union and/or by the Feds.

    This law has to to do with the fact that hundreds of thousands of people are DYING because they are being REFUSED MEDICAL TREATMENT for CCP virus/ Fauci Flu.

    Here is part of it:

    You have the right, and no physician may refuse, to demand prescription on a treatment or prophylactic basis of any drug currently licensed in the United States subject only to the limitations of this statute.

    A physician or pharmacist may not refuse to provide such a prescription or fill said prescription, nor may a pharmacy intentionally obstruct in any manner obtaining such a prescription including but not limited to by refusing or failing to order same from a distributor so as to prevent it from being filled.

  5. CDC Admits Vaxxed Parents Killing Unvaxxed Kids! The Danger is Real

    https://rumble.com/embed/voiwyz/?pub=4

    Karen Kingston joins the Stew Peters Show to expose the new evidence that vaccinated parents are increasing the mortality risk for their unvaccinated children. There’s also evidence, she says, of an absurdly high false-positive rate for Covid on the PCR Tests+.

  6. If the most obvious is STILL not obvious to you about the Covid Scam perhaps this cures your blindness…

    “As a general rule, the earlier you recognize someone is trying to kill you, the better off you’ll be.” — Robert Gore, April 23, 2020

    The most vital urgent and DEEP understanding everyone needs to RE-learn is that psychopaths typically are not physically violent crazies but always stealth predators (exploitative deceivers, which explains why the public has been fed a MISLEADING understanding of psychopaths).

    And then… the most vital urgent and DEEP understanding everyone needs to gain is that a network of manipulating psychopaths ARE governing big businesses (eg official medicine), nations and the world (the evidence is irrefutable) and that, therefore, the Covid Scamdemic is a VERY DESTRUCTIVE WAR AGAINST NON-RULING PEOPLE EVERYWHERE — you and I. But that’s only ONE part of the equation that makes up the destructive human condition.

    It is NOT just a matter of “draining the swamp” at the top and we’re back to our former (sick) “normal.”

    The true, WHOLE, but “politically inconvenient” and “culturally forbidden” reality is more encompassing because “the swamp that needs draining” on a psychological and behavioral level is over 90% of people anywhere. Check out “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” at https://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html

    Without a proper understanding, and full acknowledgment, of the true WHOLE problem and reality, no real constructive LASTING change is possible for humanity.

    Then … SPREAD THOSE DEEP TRUTHS FAR AND WIDE… and DO the RIGHT THING.

    If your employer (even educational or federal employers) wants you to take a Covid vaccine give him/her one of these form letters of exemption found at https://www.lc.org/exempt

    One of the ways psychopaths show their hate for the public is by rubbing the public’s stupidity in their own faces. Eg with the letters of “omicron” an alleged Covid variant you can spell “moronic”… And indeed most of the public NEVER recognizes their own stupidity as the believe, trust, and follow any explanation or demand of the psychopaths-in-power..

    And further speaking of stupid herd people not getting the glaringly obvious truth/ie not getting the constant onslaught of BIG lies of the official authorities……
