Manufacturers in the US are reporting depleted inventories of potassium iodide tablets, with IOSAT having sold out of its 14 pack boxes which ordinarily sell for $13.99 on their website.

Fauci Says More Vaccines Will be Needed; “We’re Not Done With This”

Health dictator Anthony Fauci declared Monday that Americans will need to take more COVID vaccines, just a day after the CEO of Pfizer proclaimed that a fourth shot is needed immediately.

In an interview with CNBC, Fauci was asked how many more shots will be needed, and responded “The answer is: we don’t know. I mean, that’s it…it is likely that we’re not done with this when it comes to vaccines.”

The comments dovetail with those of Albert Bourla, who said Sunday “It is necessary — a fourth boost — right now,” when asked about vaccines.

Florida Senate Approves Budget That Includes Money for Schools With No Mask Mandates

(LifeSiteNews) — The Florida state Senate unanimously passed a huge budget bill today that includes a reward for school districts complying with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ executive order banning mask mandates for students and staff in the state’s public schools.

The bill, totaling $112.1 billion, includes a majority of items outlined in December by DeSantis in his proposed “Freedom First Budget,” according to a report by The Epoch Times. A total of $200 million has been set aside for the 55 school districts that followed the governor’s ban on mask mandates for schools in the Sunshine State.

Lancaster Man Guilty of Causing $63,000 Damage During 2020 Protest [Update]

Editor’s note: An early version of this story did not include the full amount of restitution sought.

A Lancaster city man pleaded guilty Monday in Lancaster County Court to causing around $63,000 in damage to government property during protests following a fatal police shooting here in September 2020.

Christopher Vazquez, 33, was one of about 20 people charged in the county following protests of the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd and the shooting here of Ricardo Muñoz, 27, outside his Laurel Street home. The shooting was later determined to have been justified.

Of those arrested locally, Vazquez’s case is one of about a half-dozen so far that have been resolved. His case also involved some of the most serious charges.

During protests at the scene of the Sept. 13, 2020, shooting of Muñoz, Vazquez threw bricks at a Pennsylvania State Police SUV, then lit an umbrella on fire and put it inside, according to police. Later, downtown, he threw bricks at the police station front door.

Vazquez then threw bricks at the front door of the post office on West Chestnut Street, police said, and at vehicles registered to the Lancaster Parking Authority in the first block of West Orange Street.

(LifeSiteNews) — CDC stats show that U.S. millennials experienced an 84% increase in excess mortality during the August to December 2021 period, according to the analysis of two financial experts.

With the help of number-crunching by an unnamed “insurance industry expert,” former BlackRock Portfolio Manager Ed Dowd showed that the total numbers of excess deaths for millennials (ages 25-44) during the second half of last year — 61,000 — surpass the fatality rate of Americans killed during the Vietnam war: 58,000 people over the course of 10 years, as he noted to Steve Bannon on his “War Room” show.

MoMA Stabbing Suspect Arrested in Philly After Center City Arson

Police in New York City have been trying to track down Gary Cabana since Saturday’s assault inside the Museum of Modern Art in New York City

‘Shocked’ Dad Says He Spoke to Homeless Shooting Spree Suspect Hours Before Arrest

Police in Washington, DC, have arrested a man with a history of mental illness who they suspect carried out brutal attacks on several homeless men in DC and New York in recent days, leaving family members aghast at what they suggested was a shocking turn toward targeted, wanton violence.

A senior law-enforcement official identified the suspected serial shooter as Gerald Brevard III to The Daily Beast. The official said that 30-year-old was unarmed when he was arrested in northeast Washington, shortly after police became aware of his name. Another law-enforcement official told The Daily Beast that both police departments had received tips about Brevard, prompting officers and ATF agents to stake him out and eventually take him into custody.

Hours before Brevard’s arrest, around 5 p.m. on Monday, an Instagram account appearing to belong to him posted a photo with the caption “Feeling Devilish Feeling Godly.” The prior post has Brevard, a Washington, D.C., resident, tagged at a Manhattan event space.

The father, Gerald Brevard Jr., told The Daily Beast on Tuesday he was “crushed” to hear the news about his son’s arrest. He said they spoke on Monday, and Brevard “did not say anything out of the ordinary.”

“It was a normal conversation,” the 80-year-old, who lives in Las Vegas, said. “But he was dealing with mental illness for the longest time. He has been in and out of mental hospitals.”…

This bill was described recently by Dr. Jordan Peterson as “the most pernicious and dangerous piece of legislation that any Canadian government has attempted to put forward” and will effectively inject Critical Race Theory (CRT) into every sector of Ontario’s education system.

Every single Member of Provincial Parliament in attendance, from every party, voted in favour of Bill 67 — except for one. The lone holdout who stood against Bill 67 was Belinda Karahalios of the New Blue Party of Ontario, who is the sitting MPP for the riding of Cambridge.

Ontario “On the Verge of Enforcing Critical Race Theory in All Schools”

Bill 67, Racial Equity in the Education System Act, 2021, has passed second reading in the Ontario legislature and at first glance it looks like a great idea. After all, no one can make a sensible argument ‘for’ racism. The world is doing its best to move past the ugly reality of racism which has seemingly always plagued societies. So why are some important and influential Canadian educators and communicators ferociously opposed to Bill 67?

They’ll tell you it’s because they’ve actually read the bill and they know the meaning of the words used over and over again throughout.

If you don’t already know (and most Canadians haven’t looked into this yet) the profound difference between “equality” and “equity”, or the profound difference between “anti-racism” and “non-racism” this presentation is critically important. In the three days since this video was released, it has already been viewed over 600,000 times.

Paul’s Pizza Will Not be Silenced

Paul’s Pizza in Airdrie, Alberta is known for their quality food, but as of late the restaurant has garnered a fair amount of attention for their unabashed support for freedom.

Co-owner Farouk “Assault” Elsaghir doesn’t shy away from sharing his opinions on the restaurant’s official Facebook page.

Farouk is perfectly clear that every is welcome in his restaurant, no matter their politics or ideologies, but where he draws the line is when people attempt to stifle or silence him. Those people, per Farouk, are welcome to head over to Dominos.

The politicization of his pizza started when Paul’s Pizza began getting negative reviews, but they were neither criticisms of the food or even the restaurant; Paul’s Pizza was riddled with criticisms of the owner’s politics.

One review read, “I cannot get enough of how delicious this pizza is. Update: Unfortunately, Paul’s social media presence is leaving a poor taste in my mouth, and I will not be back.”

Paul’s Pizza dared to provide pizza to truckers in the Freedom Convoy and refused to be silenced by online bullies. Since then, people have been attempting to cancel and ruin his business with bogus reviews.

With his minority government, Prime Minister Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act — never seen before in Canada’s history in its modern rendition from the War Measures act his father used back in the 80s.

This was after he slandered those who supported this civil liberties movement fighting for Canadian’s fundamental rights enshrined in the Charter of Rights as a “fringe minority” and who hold “unacceptable views”. I wanted to ask the crowd that came out in support of the truckers in their movement what they thought on the very weekend that the convoy arrived in Ottawa, January 29th, 2022.

Stanford Medical Prof Emphasizes Significance of COVID Antibodies Found From Fall 2019

Antibodies to the novel coronavirus have been discovered in blood samples dating from September 2019 in Europe, prior to the supposed outbreak in Wuhan, China, marking an “enormous” change in how the government response to the virus should be viewed, a leading medical professor said.

Commenting on the discovery, Stanford medical professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya noted that stored blood samples from September and November 2019 tested in France and Italy displayed COVID-19 antibodies, disqualifying initial media reporting that a Wuhan wet market had been the source of the global outbreak of the virus.

“The implications are enormous,” Bhattacharya said, highlighting that since the virus was in the population “long before the official start date, it was too late to stop the disease from spreading across the earth.”

“We have wasted 2 years on lockdowns for nothing,” he charged.

Russia Sanctions President Biden, Secretary Blinken & Top Defense Officials

Update(11:05ET): Moscow has hit back against Washington by sanctioning top US leadership, including President Joe Biden himself. The punitive retaliation measures extend to the chiefs of the Pentagon, and Secretary of State Antony Blinken and CIA Director William Burns. Russian state media announced in a Tuesday statement:

“Russia on Tuesday sanctioned US President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Tony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and ten other administration officials and political figures. Moscow has said that the sanctions are a reciprocal measure, imposed after Washington blacklisted top Russian leaders, including President Vladimir Putin.”

Despite the measures being largely symbolic — as it will be essentially impossible for Moscow to actually go after US officials’ assets unless they are held in Russia itself (and certainly no top American official is looking to travel to Russia anytime soon) — it signals that tensions with the West are ratcheting fast, with increasingly few off-ramps as the two sides chart a war-footing course.

    • Notice the difference?
      European refugees are women and children.
      Moslem refugees are military age men.

      This is called a “clue.”

      • Yet a “clue” that most Western do-gooders seem oblivious to…

        I’m not sure they’d even register, that around 85% of that group of “Ukrainian arrivals” being African/Muslim men is something strange.
