Exclusive — Rep. Banks Calls for Investigation After Undercover Mothers Expose Rampant Indoctrination in Schools

Congressman Jim Banks (R-IN) is vowing to investigate the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) if Republicans retake the majority in Congress after the midterm elections — scrutinizing the organization’s function in political advocacy and its 501(c)(3) status.

Breitbart News reported Wednesday on a national network of “Undercover Mothers” who are working together to expose and combat rampant political indoctrination in their children’s schools, declining academic standards, and opaque school governance and financial management — which they believe stems from the NAIS.

GOP Slams Clinton Campaign After Durham Report Reveals ‘Spying Operation’ On Trump

Following the release of a filing made by Special Counsel for the United States Department of Justice John Durham accusing the Hillary Clinton campaign of paying operatives to spy on the Trump campaign and presidency, the Clinton campaign has come under fire on Twitter by GOP figures.

“The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham [sic] provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia,” a Saturday press statement to followers from former President Donald Trump reads.

Heart-Disease Risk Soars After COVID — Even With a Mild Case

Massive study shows a long-term, substantial rise in risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke, after a SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Even a mild case of COVID-19 can increase a person’s risk of cardiovascular problems for at least a year after diagnosis, a new study1 shows. Researchers found that rates of many conditions, such as heart failure and stroke, were substantially higher in people who had recovered from COVID-19 than in similar people who hadn’t had the disease.

What’s more, the risk was elevated even for those who were under 65 years of age and lacked risk factors, such as obesity or diabetes.

“It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, it doesn’t matter if you smoked, or you didn’t,” says study co-author Ziyad Al-Aly at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and the chief of research and development for the Veterans Affairs (VA) St. Louis Health Care System. “The risk was there.”

Al-Aly and his colleagues based their research on an extensive health-record database curated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. The researchers compared more than 150,000 veterans who survived for at least 30 days after contracting COVID-19 with two groups of uninfected people: a group of more than five million people who used the VA medical system during the pandemic, and a similarly sized group that used the system in 2017, before SARS-CoV-2 was circulating…

Man Dies After Crashing Into Building, Leading to Blast in Conshohocken

The 47-year-old man was driving on East Elm Street around 1:45 a.m. Sunday when he lost control of his car and crashed into a nearby building

A man died from his injuries after he crashed his car into a building, leading to an explosion in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, overnight.

The 47-year-old man was driving on East Elm Street around 1:45 a.m. Sunday when he lost control of his car and crashed into a nearby building, shearing off the gas service. The escaping natural gas then ignited, causing an explosion.

A West Conshohocken Police officer and a Good Samaritan both pulled the man out of the vehicle. Firefighters placed the flames under control and PECO gas services shut down the gas.

The unidentified man was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators have not yet revealed his identity. He was the only person inside the vehicle and no other injuries were reported.

Peter Schweizer’s ‘Red-Handed: ‘ Universities Like Yale Fail to Report Chinese Communist Cash as Required by Law

Bestselling investigative author Peter Schweizer says that U.S. colleges and universities are not complying with federal laws with regards to reporting the millions of dollars they receive in donations linked to the Chinese Communist Party. Schweizer details these findings in his latest book, Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win.

“Section 117 of the Education Act in 1965 is very explicit. It says that if U.S. colleges and universities take in foreign donations, substantial foreign donations, they are required to report those to the federal government,” Schweizer told the Star News Network.

Texas Professor Sues University After Being Punished for Saying Music Theory Isn’t Racist

A professor at the University of North Texas is suing the school for punishing him after he pushed back against the idea that music theory is a function of White supremacy.

The lawsuit, first reported by Campus Reform, claims that the First and Fourteenth Amendment rights of professor Timothy Jackson were violated by the school when they removed him from the academic journal he co-founded after he published several articles that students and faculty deemed “racist.”

A report on Antifa was published in The Washington Post—conducted by a team of researchers that analyzed Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests—that found that Antifa’s presence at such events “greatly increased the risk of violence.”

Two sociology academics at Penn State analyzed data on the 2020 civil unrest and concluded the presence of Antifa at an event made violence much more likely.

Breaking: Police Sabotage Heavy Equipment at Coutts

Truckers who are protesting all COVID-19 mandates in Coutts, Alberta were surprised to learn that police sabotaged some of their vehicles.

Three excavator vehicles were parked on private land with permission from the owner.

RCMP had allegedly asked the owners to move the vehicles so they wouldn’t be visible from the highway. The owners obliged, and sometime after moving the vehicles found the damage.

Damage reportedly included the cutting of electrical and control cables. And an expandable foam was sprayed inside the vehicle causing additional damage.

Debunked: What Happened in the Attempted Arson of a Residential Building in Ottawa?

Since the trucker convoy began, we have seen the mainstream media try to turn it into something it is not. Having been on the ground since January 28, I can say that I have seen nothing but peaceful Canadians exercising their right to protest.

We have been informed of an attempted arson on a residential building at the corner of Metcalfe and Lisgar in downtown Ottawa. Not surprisingly, mainstream media reporters immediately jumped on the story and insinuated that it was people involved in the convoy who tried to set the fire.

Countless reporters from various media outlets quoted a tweet from Matias Muñoz, a resident of the building where the arson attempt took place and took the opportunity to smear the protesters. So, in typical Rebel News fashion, we investigated this incident to bring you the other side of the story and find out what really happened. My colleague called the Ottawa Police desk, and I went to meet with the manager of the building in question.

Const. Elena Golysheva of the Edmonton Police Service in Edmonton, Alberta, identified herself before delivering a tearful three-minute, 17-second speech, expressing gratitude for the pro-medical freedom demonstrators across Canada.

“I’ve always been reminded by my supervisors, ‘Please question unsafe orders. Ask us questions if you think the orders are unlawful.’ And that’s what I think our job is. Thank you truckers for standing up for all of us,” Golysheva said in the video.

‘This is Canada it’s Supposed to be a Free Country’, Bridge Blockade Protesters Speak Out After Police Move In

WINDSOR, Ontario — Demonstrators at the Ambassador Bridge blockade in Windsor, Canada, slammed law enforcement and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after police cleared the protest Sunday morning.

“This is Canada, it’s supposed to be a free country,” one 83 years old-man named Joachim Machnic told Fox News. “We have the right to protest” and “now we’re even being denied the place to protest.”

The Ambassador Bridge, which connects roughly one-quarter of Canada-U.S. trade, has been blocked for nearly a week by demonstrators advocating for an end to COVID-19 mandates. On Friday, a Canadian court ordered protesters vacate the area.

Police began enforcing the order Saturday morning, but many demonstrators still remained that evening.

On Sunday morning, police pushed remaining protesters down the road and away from the bridge, making at least a dozen arrests and towing vehicles along the way.

What is Myocarditis and What Does it Have to Do With the COVID Vaccine in Children?

As per the Myocarditis Foundation, myocarditis is a “rare disease” that affects thousands of adults and children in the U.S. and around the globe.

It causes “inflammation of the heart muscle which… weakens the heart, creates scar tissue making it work harder to circulate blood and oxygen throughout the body. Myocarditis is the third leading cause of sudden death in children and young adults. Due to the fact that myocarditis was previously rare, information is limited regarding its causes and effective treatments.”

Most commonly, the inflammation is the result of a viral infection, although bacterial infections and exposure to toxins, among other things, can also contribute.

The foundation refers to the global myocarditis incident rate, as per the 2019 Global Burden of Disease study, the “prevalence of myocarditis in 2019 was 712,780 cases or a rate of 9.21 per 100,000.”

The Ontario data shows a much higher incidence rate, especially in 12-17 year old males.

Central European Countries Have Lowest Representation in EU Institutions

Officials in Brussels are mainly of nationalities from the “old” EU member states, with the system favoring the countries of southern Europe in particular. On the contrary, Czechs or Bulgarians do not have sufficient representation, which is a problem when these countries attempt to promote their interests.

The Czech Republic does not have an entirely weak voice within the European Union, with European Commission Vice-President Vera Jourova managing to build an outsized reputation. The Czechs can also be seen in the European Parliament, where until recently they had two vice-presidents, but only Dita Charanzova currently holds this position.

However, the political element of Brussels represents only one side of the coin, and it is just as important what is going on “behind the curtain,” meaning among diplomats and officials. And it is in this area that a geographical imbalance are most noticeable.

Climate Mania is Costing Greek Lives

Climate mania imposed by the eco-socialist elites has degenerated into a real drama in Greece, the cradle of Europe.

In the capital Athens, in the port metropolis of Piraeus as well as in other large cities, impoverished people are desperately trying to warm their freezing flats at least a little with old wood stoves or even charcoal grills. Often they start fires that eventually lead to fire disasters.

What are you doing?“ asks the protester, filming the incident.

What are you doing — you f**king bogan sl*t?” replies the local driver. “Get the f**k out of Canberra. Go and get a job and find something better to do with f**king time. What have you done?

Their camp site at the Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) has insisted that any protesters still on the premises after Sunday risk being classed as trespassers. The deadline was meant to be Sunday, but EPIC cancelled its events as there were too many protesters to realistically move on.

Botswana to Fine or Jail Returning Citizens Who Refuse COVID-19 Vaccination

Returning Botswana citizens unwilling to be vaccinated for Covid-19 face a fine of R6 500 (about 5 000 Botswanan Pula), a year in prison, or both, as the government worries about vaccines that will expire in April this year.

The fine and prison terms are contained in a government gazette, which was published on Friday, under the Public Health Act (Prevention of Introduction or Spread of Covid-19).

“A person who refuses to be subjected to the provisions of Section 80 (1) (c) and (d) of the Act commits an offense and is liable to a fine not exceeding P5 000 or to a term of imprisonment not exceeding one year, or to both,” reads the gazette.

Germany: Muslim Migrant Known to Police Tries to Rape Woman in Broad Daylight

Why does this keep happening? In France, a Muslim quoted Qur’an while raping his victim. A survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK has said that her rapists would quote the Qur’an to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. Thus it came as no surprise when Muslim migrants in France raped a girl and videoed the rape while praising Allah and invoking the Qur’an. In India, a Muslim gave a Qur’an and a prayer rug to the woman he was holding captive and repeatedly raping. And the victim of an Islamic State jihadi rapist recalled: “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God…He said that raping me is his prayer to God.” In India, a Muslim kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old Hindu girl, and forced her to read the Qur’an and Islamic prayers. In Pakistan, another Christian woman recounted that her rapist was also religious: “He threw me on the bed and started to rape me. He demanded I marry him and convert to Islam. I refused. I am not willing to deny Jesus and he said that if I would not agree he would kill me.” Rapists demanded that another girl’s family turn her over to them, claiming that she had recited the Islamic profession of faith during the rape and thus could not live among infidels.

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

However, anyone who points all this out will be excoriated as a “racist” and an “Islamophobe,” and accordingly ignored.
