Coronavirus Pushes New Zealand into First Recession in a Decade

Breitbart – A report on New Zealand’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) revealed on Thursday that the nation has slipped into its first recession in ten years, thanks to economic damage from the Wuhan coronavirus.

Radio New Zealand (RNZ) reported the GDP dropped a seasonally adjusted 12.2 percent over the quarter ending in June, following a 1.4 percent drop in the first quarter. The second-quarter figure represented “the biggest fall since the current system of measuring data was introduced in 1987.”

Polio Vaccine Causing Polio Outbreaks in Africa, WHO Admits

Health Impact News – A year ago, news outlets briefly shone a light on the fact (a fact that makes public health officials squirm) that oral polio vaccines are causing polio outbreaks. With reports streaming in throughout 2019 regarding the circulation of vaccine-derived polioviruses in numerous African and Asian countries, a CDC virologist confessed,

“We have now created more new emergences of the virus than we have stopped.”

This month, the same story is making the same headlines, with the WHO’s shamefaced announcement that the oral polio vaccine is responsible for an alarming polio outbreak in Sudan—“linked to an ongoing vaccine-sparked epidemic in Chad”—with parallel outbreaks in a dozen other African countries.

In fact, between August 2019 and August 2020, there were 400 recorded cases of vaccine-derived polio in more than 20 countries worldwide.

Ironically, WHO disclosed this “setback” barely a week after it declared the African continent to be free of wild poliovirus—which has not been seen in Africa since 2016.

While African epidemiologists cheerily claim that these outbreaks can “be brought under control with further immunization,” and Sudan prepares to launch a mass polio vaccination campaign, WHO is warning that “the risk of further spread of the vaccine-derived polio across central Africa and the Horn of Africa” is high.

The Gates Foundation is a leading funder of oral polio vaccination in Africa and around the world, having dedicated nearly $4 billion to such efforts by the end of 2018.

As discussed in Forbes in May 2019, Gates has “personally [driven] the development” of new oral polio vaccines and plays a “strategic role beyond funding.” The Forbes author (who partners with Gates on polio initiatives) states:

The work on the [polio] vaccine changes the direction of the light on Gates and the Foundation, shifting the view from philanthropist to social entrepreneur. The Foundation . . . isn’t merely a grant-making organization but also an innovation engine.

The Polio and “Non-Polio” Shell Game in Africa and the U.S.—2020 Update

By the Children’s Health Defense Team

In early September, one week after definitively pronouncing the African continent polio-free, the World Health Organization (WHO) had to eat crow.

With no wild polio cases reported in Africa since 2016, the WHO admitted that the oral polio vaccines that its top sponsor, Bill Gates, so generously finances and so avidly promotes are giving African children polio. In addition to officially acknowledged vaccine-derived polio cases, which increased substantially from 2018 to 2019, the African region also annually reports tens of thousands of cases—over 31,500 from just 18 countries in 2017—of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), a debilitating condition with a clinical picture virtually identical to polio.

Many other countries—ranging from India to Italy—also record significant numbers of AFP cases.

In the U.S., childhood paralysis may not be documented on the same scale as in Africa or India, but it has attracted notice in high places.

In early August, Senator and one-time presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar sent a letter to CDC director Robert Redfield raising concerns about an expected fall outbreak of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), a subtype of AFP that, again, produces polio-like symptoms: muscle weakness, paralysis, pain, trouble swallowing and, in the most severe cases, acute respiratory failure.

The CDC only began tracking and studying AFM when cases inexplicably surged in 2014; since then, it has documented an odd biennial pattern of peaks and lulls, but also a steady upward trend in cases. So far this year, up to 65 U.S. children have surfaced with confirmed or suspected AFM.

Since 2014, a total of 638 cases have been confirmed across America, with a 98% hospitalization rate.

“Mysterious”—or iatrogenic?

In countries that use the oral polio vaccine, the CDC has no problem acknowledging that AFP is associated with vaccine-derived poliovirus. In the U.S., however, the use of another type of polio vaccine has allowed officials to frame the story very differently. In fact, AFM is almost universally painted as random and “mysterious.”

The CDC has assiduously avoided mentioning one iatrogenic (medically induced) cause that is staring the agency in the face: 70 years of published studies along with manufacturers’ package inserts documenting a trail of polio-like symptoms (ranging from myelitis, numbness, pain and limb paralysis) following vaccination.

Among the mechanisms that could explain this phenomenon are the aluminum adjuvants in vaccines; studies in animals show that aluminum-containing vaccines contribute to neuropathological changes that include neurodegeneration of the gray matter of the spinal cord and hindlimb paralysis.

In discussing AFP, African researchers have been somewhat less cagey than CDC researchers, identifying at least two proximal and primarily iatrogenic causes: injection injuries and Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS).

A rural Ugandan study published in 2018, for example, found that two conditions commonly seen throughout Uganda—post-injection paralysis (PIP) and a form of tissue fibrosis called gluteal fibrosis (GF)—together accounted for, over a three-year period, over 30% of clinic visits specifically for musculoskeletal conditions and an astounding 40% of outreach visits “for any medical complaint.”

Declining to mention that Ugandan children are expected to be vaccinated five times before their first birthday, the Ugandan researchers nevertheless noted that PIP tends to cluster in very young children (ages 0-3).

In the case of GF (which displays increased odds with “increasing frequency of injections”), they observed a peak in 8- to 11-year-olds, severe enough to limit the children’s school attendance and ability to perform “activities of daily living.”

Other researchers have matter-of-factly described tissue fibrosis as a “known complication of intramuscular injections . . . especially seen in children due to vaccinations and injections.”

A study of pediatric AFP in South Africa (also published in 2018) concluded that GBS—a condition typified by muscle weakness and paralysis—was AFP’s predominant cause, accounting for 83% of cases, producing “significant morbidity” and, in two cases, resulting in death.

In fact, researchers credit GBS with being the most common cause of AFP worldwide.

Again, one does not have to travel very far down the causal chain to come up with a plausible GBS trigger; twenty-one different package inserts for vaccines on the U.S. market list GBS as an adverse event. The U.S. experience with the 1976 swine flu vaccine and a decades-old evidence base also point in this direction.

U.S. News, Politics & Government

Trump announces creation of national ‘1776 Commission’ to promote ‘patriotic education’

RT – Critical race theory and revisionist history such as the New York Times’ 1619 Project are “toxic” need to be countered with patriotic education, US president Donald Trump vowed, announcing a new initiative to do so.

Speaking on Thursday on the occasion of Constitution Day – the anniversary of the US founding document being signed in 1787 – Trump denounced the radicals who seek to “demolish this treasured and precious inheritance,” specifically naming critical race theory, the 1619 Project, and Howard Zinn’s ‘People’s History of the United States.’

“The left-wing rioting and mayhem are the direct result of decades of left-wing indoctrination in our schools,” Trump said, referring to unrest that began at the end of May and spread across the country ostensibly in name of racial justice.

Critical Race Theory, the 1619 Project, and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda — an ideological poison that, if not removed, will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together.

Teaching critical race theory in schools is child abuse “in the truest sense of those words,” Trump said.

Calling the US “the most fair, equal and prosperous nation in human history,” Trump said that Americans will never submit to “tyranny” of cancel culture and will “reclaim our history, and our country, for citizens of every race, color, religion and creed.”

As a specific measure to achieve this, he announced the establishment of a presidential commission on patriotic education, called the “1776 commission” after the year the original 13 American colonies declared independence from Britain.

The New York Times embraced the 1619 project last year, as part of a pivot from ‘Russiagate’ conspiracy theories to accusing Trump of racism. The author of its flagship essay, Nikole Hannah-Jones, was rewarded with the Pulitzer Prize in March.Through the partnership with the Pulitzer Center, Hannah-Jones’s work has already been distributed to thousands of US classrooms. Her essay had to be corrected several times, however, as it inaccurately claimed – among other things – that the American revolution was fought to preserve slavery.

In response to the White House releasing excerpts from Trump’s speech, on Thursday, some mainstream media outlets rallied to condemn his criticism of the 1619 project and declare Hannah-Jones a “national treasure.”

House Republicans Introduce Legislation To Bar Federal Funding Of Schools Teaching Fake History

The Federalist – Two House Republicans introduced legislation Thursday that would bar federal funds from flowing to schools with curriculum featuring the New York Times’ anti-American 1619 Project indoctrinating K-12 students with fake history.

The bill, put forward by Colorado Rep. Ken Buck with Georgia Rep. Rick Allen, serves as companion legislation introduced in the Senate by Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton in July.

“The 1619 Project teaches children a historically inaccurate account of our nation’s history,” Buck said. “Federal funding should not go towards schools that teach flawed and inaccurate curriculum in classrooms. We should be able to acknowledge the stains on our nation’s history while still continuing to celebrate the good our country has done.”

Cotton reiterated his support for the proposal, calling the Times’ curriculum on revisionist history being taught in some 4,500 classrooms nationwide “left-wing garbage.”

“Not a single cent of federal funding should go to indoctrinate young Americans,” Cotton said.

The progressive project, spearheaded by the Times’ riot-cheering Nikole Hannah-Jones who won a Pulitzer on the opening essay which required a major correction to the piece, has since become a primary manifesto for the left’s critical race theory re-writing American history as the creation of an irredeemably racist empire built for the sole purpose of oppressing black and indigenous people.

“The 1619 Project’s goal is to indoctrinate the idea in our nation’s young people that America is an evil country – which is far from the truth,” Rep. Allen said. “Though our history is not perfect, we have overcome our challenges to create a land of opportunity for all. If we want to fight injustice and work toward a more perfect union, we must learn from our past and teach out students to do better – not teach false history.”

Nashville officials hid stats showing low coronavirus transmission in bars & restaurants, emails reveal

RT – Coronavirus transmission in bars and restaurants in Nashville, Tennessee was so low the mayor’s office opted to hide it from the public, recently-leaked emails show. The statistics throw ongoing shutdowns elsewhere into question.

The Nashville Mayor’s office swept bar and restaurant transmission numbers under the rug because they were too low, emails obtained by local media suggest. The conversation between the mayor’s office and the local health department appears to show the figures were deliberately kept from the public to justify the shutdowns that put many Nashville residents out of work.

After running contact tracing on the city’s new coronavirus cases in late June, the health department discovered nursing homes and construction sites were responsible for over 1,000 cases each – but bars and restaurants were responsible for just 22. 

That was apparently a problem, as health department official Leslie Waller contacted the mayor’s office to make sure Nashville residents weren’t going to see the results. “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?” she asked in an email. A senior adviser to the mayor replied in the affirmative, and the stats went unseen by city residents. 

When a reporter asked a health department official a month later about a report that just 80 cases at the time had been traced to bars and restaurants out of more than 20,000 positive tests in the county, the official sent a panicked email to five of his colleagues asking them to “advise” on how he should respond.

The official was told to spin it as best as he could. “We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site. We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number,” the replying official wrote. 

We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds, literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes… and we did it on bogus data,” Nashville council member Steve Glover told local Fox affiliate WZTV, incensed over the apparent coverup. “That should be illegal,” he added

They are fabricating information… I don’t trust a thing they say going forward.”

When WZTV inquired further, they were told to file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the city, with both the health department and the mayor’s office refusing to directly confirm the authenticity of the emails. However, Glover contacted an attorney on staff with the city who claimed he was able to verify the veracity of the emails with both the mayor’s office and the health department.

While keeping citizens scared of gathering in bars and restaurants would seem to be a ruinous move for a city that depends on tourism for much of its revenue, Nashville’s government may have a financial incentive to play up coronavirus transmission in public gathering places. 

The city earlier this week asked Tennessee Governor Bill Lee for $82.6 million in Covid-19 relief money to prop up its ailing tourism industry and expand social services. Around $12 million of the requested aid is supposed to help “put musicians safely back to work” in the city’s storied venues – though it would be split with other tourist-draw nonprofits like the Nashville Zoo.

Fox News Cuts Off Newt Gingrich After He Points Out George Soros Role in Electing Prosecutors

Breitbart – Fox News cut off former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich on Wednesday after he brought up the role of billionaire left-wing financier George Soros in funding the election of left-wing prosecutors in local races over the past several years.

Gingrich argued that the rise in crime in many Democrat-governed cities was partly the result of the election of left-wing district attorneys who had received financial assistance from George Soros.

But commentators Melissa Francis and Marie Harf attempted to silence Gingrich.

“Look, the number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up,” Gingrich said. “Just yesterday they put somebody back on the streets who’s wanted for two different murders in New York City.”

He continued: “You cannot solve this problem — and both [Kamala] Harris and [Joe] Biden have talked very proudly out what they call ‘progressive district attorneys’. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’s money.

“And they’re a major cause of the violence we’re seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street,” Gingrich said.

“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” Francis replied.

“He paid for it,” Gingrich, who was obviously taken aback by the interruption. “I mean, why can’t we discuss that fact that millions of dollars….”.

“No he didn’t,” Harf interjected. “I agree with Melissa. George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation.”

“Okay, so it’s verboten,” Gingrich said, using the German word for “forbidden.”

As Breitbart News reported in May 2018, Soros became involved in several local races for district attorney, in Northern California and around the nation. His goal was to defeat “law-and-order” candidates and elect “progressive” prosecutors.

The Los Angeles Times noted, in an article titled “Here’s why George Soros, liberal groups are spending big to help decide who’s your next D.A.”:

The effort is part of a years-long campaign by liberal groups to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system.

Where law-and-order campaigns appeal to fear, the new strategy targets anger.

One issue that has caught fire is police shootings.

“It’s really coming from this Black Lives Matter moment of police accountability,” said Margaret Dooley-Sammuli, criminal justice and drug policy director for the ACLU of California.

Much of the money remained “hidden,” funneled (presumably legally) through non-profit groups that did not have to disclose their donors.

It is therefore unknown precisely how many races Soros was involved in, though the Times reported that the number was at least 21. In many cases, Soros backed left-wing candidates against establishment Democrats.

Soros-backed prosecutors have played a role in several national controversies. They include Kim Foxx, the Chicago-area prosecutor who mishandled the Jussie Smollet hate crime hoax; Kim Garnder, the St. Louis prosecutor who charged the McCloskeys after they defended their home from a Black Lives Matter mob by standing outside with their guns; and Diana Becton, who has charged a California couple with a hate crime for painting over a “Black Lives Matter” mural on a public road.

In a 2018 essay about Soros in Tablet magazine, an online Jewish publication, James Kirchik noted that while some criticism of Soros is indeed antisemitic, some is not, and focuses on legitimate criticism of his role in funding the far left around the world.

Susan Rice: ‘Dear Leader’ Trump’s Patriotic Education Executive Order ‘Communist, Retro, Crazy’

Breitbart – Former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice said on Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront” that President Donald Trump’s executive order to restore patriotic education to our schools was “the most communist, retro, crazy thing I’ve heard out of Donald Trump’s mouth in a while.”

Burnett  said, “He just said something else today, signed an executive order creating the quote ‘1776 commission.’ And the goal of it, and I want to quote, from the order is to ‘restore patriotic education to our schools,’ as if that education has been gone. He went after The New York Times for its quote, ‘1619 project,’ which aims to reframe this nation’s history with a greater focus on slavery. Here’s what the president said.”

In a clip, Trump said, “America’s founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished slavery, secured civil rights, defeated communism and fascism and built the most fair, equal and prosperous nation in human history.”

Burnett asked, “What is your response to the president?”

Rice said, “This was one of the most astonishing speeches I’ve heard him give. He talks about patriotic education. I thought I was listening to Mao Zedong running communist China. We don’t have the education where the dear leader tells the people what they must learn. We open students’ minds. We give them facts. We teach them how to analyze. We teach them civics and the foundations of the Constitution. When you study the Constitution, which it appears Donald Trump hasn’t, you understand it is a living document that has evolved. He heralded today the signing of the Constitution in 1787 as a great day, it was. I love the Constitution. I’ve sworn an oath to protect it against all enemies, foreign and domestic. In 1787, you and I, Erin, and all women in our country couldn’t participate in the democracy. We had no vote. If you were African-American and a male, the constitution of 1787 said you are worth 3/5 of a human being. So, to celebrate that and deny the realities of our history, positive and negative, and to wipe out the history of slavery in this country and to call the teaching of it un-American is the most communist, retro, crazy thing I’ve heard out of Donald Trump’s mouth in a while.”

4 Voters Claim NPR as Residence, Identified in California Voter Record Review

Breitbart – Four voters who claimed the National Public Radio (NPR) West headquarters as their residence and voted in 2018 via mail-in absentee ballots have been identified in a review of California’s voter registration and voting history records.

The discovery was made by the Public Interest Legal Foundation as it conducted a review of the Golden State’s voter registration and voting history records as it matched nonresidential addresses.

The names of those four individuals, according to Hans A. von Spakovsky, are Juan Ramon Beristain, Isabella Beristain, Carrie Jane Kahn, and Anjuli Sastry.

“Neither Beristain’s name appears in a search of the NPR website, and their affiliations with the left-leaning public broadcaster aren’t clear,” Spakovsky noted in his analysis of the situation.

Additionally, Spakovsky said that Kahn “is listed as an international correspondent based in Mexico City.” According to Kahn’s biography on the website, she works with NPR programs such as All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and Weekend Edition.

Throughout the investigation into the matter, it was also revealed that Sastry is listed in her biography as “an associate producer at WAMU (88.5), the NPR station owned by American University in Washington, D.C.” The biography also states that Sastry also worked on All Things Considered.

“But according to the voter registration form that Sastry had to have completed under oath when she registered to vote, she lives 2,680 miles away from the nation’s capital at the NPR West building in Culver City,” Spakovsky claimed.

Spakovsky also highlighted legal punishment for those that make a “false statement on a voter registration form.”

“Making a false statement on a voter registration form—such as claiming that a commercial building where you work is actually your residence—violates Section 1015 (f), a felony punishable by a maximum of five years’ imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000, or both,” Spakovsky said.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Allows Mail-in Ballots to Be Counted After Election Day Without Evidence of Postmark

Breitbart – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Thursday that ballots received three days after Election Day will still be counted — even if there is no evidence they were postmarked on time.

Democrats scored two judicial victories in Pennsylvania on Thursday, when the court kicked the Green Party presidential candidate off the ballot, and ruled that mailed-in ballots could still be counted util 5:00 p.m. ET on the third d

The court added: that “ballots received within this period” — i.e. between November 3 and 6 –“that lack a postmark or other proof of mailing, or for which the postmark or other proof of mailing is illegible, will be presumed to have been mailed by Election Day unless a preponderance of the evidence demonstrates that it was mailed after Election Day.”

In a footnote, the court explains its reasoning, saying that disqualifying a ballot without a postmark would “disenfranchise a voter based upon the absence or illegibility of a USPS postmark that is beyond the control of the voter once she places her ballot in the USPS delivery system.”

Democrats lost on other issues in the case, known as PA Dem Party. v. Boockvar.

The three-day extension is less, for example, than the seven-day extension Democrats had originally sought. Though the court argued, controversially, that it had the authority, under “extraordinary jurisdiction” due to the coronavirus pandemic, which had the character of a “natural disaster,” to extend the deadline past the statutory date, it did not grant a full week.

The court also rejected a demand that county election boards be required to contact voters to inform them of an “incomplete or incorrectly completed ballot,” since there was “no constitutional or statutory basis” for the demand.

And the the court rejected a demand that mailed-in ballots that arrived “naked” — without an envelope to guarantee secrecy — be counted: “Upon careful examination of the statutory text, we conclude that the Legislature intended for the secrecy envelope provision to be mandatory.”

However, Democrats persuaded the court to allow county election boards to designate alternative locations for mail-in ballots to be hand-delivered including “drop-boxes.” And they persuaded the court to uphold a legal requirement that poll-watchers be residents of the country where they were observing the vote.

In a similar case decided Thursday, Crossey v. Boockvar, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected a demand that county election boards allow third parties to deliver ballots for other people — the controversial practice known as “ballot harvesting.” The practice is illegal almost everywhere except California, and the court noted that it is still illegal in Pennsylvania, too.

Other developments were more advantageous to Democrats. Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar (D) agreed to a demand by several litigants — including the League of Women Voters (LWV) and the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh — that county officials not inspect the signatures on mail-in ballots to match them with the signatures on file.

Most Organizations formed to Combat Child Sex Trafficking are Actually Facilitating and Funding It

Health Impact News – One of the tragic realities of child sex trafficking is the fact that groups who allegedly advocate for the end of child sex trafficking and the “protection” of children, are actually the very groups behind trafficking children.

The most obvious example is the one we have been reporting on for years now here at Health Impact News, which is the government-funded child welfare system commonly referred to as “Child Protective Services,” or CPS, which is the main vehicle by which children are kidnapped from their families and trafficked.

Child sex trafficking has been a hot topic in the corporate media recently, and every time I am alerted to some of these news stories, especially where rallies or demonstrations are taking place, I always look at the group behind these public demonstrations, and who the leaders are within these groups.

Very often Child Abuse Pediatricians and hospital child abuse clinics are involved, and as we have documented over the years, these doctors make their living solely by finding “medical abuse” so they can take custody away from the family and put them into the lucrative multi-billion dollar a year foster care and adoption system.

We need to call this what it really is: Child Trafficking.

These government-funded and privately run groups do not care about the welfare of children at all. If they did, they would do everything possible to keep children at home with their families, by supporting those families, which in many cases are poor, minority families.

The Christian Church is one of the largest entities guilty of child trafficking, calling it “Orphan Care.”

The QAnon movement has also been in the media frequently in recent days, and a big part of this movement has been exposing child sex trafficking. Some of the Q followers, and some of the Q “droppings” themselves seem to have revealed true intelligence on the problem of child sex trafficking.

But Satan is the “father of lies,” and his most deceptive way of fooling the masses is promoting something that might be 90% or even 99% true, but 1% or 10% false, and this is the most dangerous deception of all.

So while the QAnon phenomenon has exposed real intel on child sex trafficking, the belief that one person, a billionaire Wall Street insider turned politician and currently serving as the President of the United States, is going to clean up this entire mess of child sex trafficking and put everyone behind it in prison, might be one of the greatest deceptions of all time.

Of course this religious-like belief is based on another deception, namely that the President of the United States runs the country.

This is a false belief. The country is run by the Wall Street gang of billionaires and Central Bankers, which now includes the Silicon Valley moguls, along with the secretive intelligence agencies like the CIA who control the corporate propaganda media, and at the top of their leadership they are all pedophile Satanists, and most of them are probably addicted to Adrenochrome, which requires a fresh supply of blood from young children.

Anyone who thinks Donald Trump can put away all of these Globalists has been thoroughly deceived.

Reporter Whitney Webb has written an excellent piece exposing Ashton Kutcher’s NGO group “Thorn” which supposedly protects children, and its links to Amazon.com’s Jeff Bezos, facial recognition software, and the CIA.

Ex-FBI Director Comey to Appear Before Senate Judiciary Panel on September 30

Sputnik –  Former FBI Director James Comey will appear before the US Senate Judiciary Committee on September 30, panel chairman Lindsey Graham said in an interview.

Graham acknowledged that he was dubious about the number of then-FBI senior officials who claimed they had lost or accidentally erased the records of their cell phones in discussing Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI Counterintelligence Crossfire Hurricane probe of President Donald Trump’s alleged connections with Russia, for which no evidence was ever found.

“The day of reckoning is upon us,” Graham told FOX News on Thursday. “James Comey has agreed to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee. He will be respectfully treated… We will have Mr. Comey before the committee and I look forward to it.”

“Common sense [says] it sounds fishy as hell. We are going to ask the people who did the erasing. We will try to find out, how was the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court mislead multiple times? That day is coming. We are getting to the bottom of what happened,” Graham said.

The committee was also negotiating with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe about his appearing before it before the November 3 presidential election without having to be subpoenaed by it, Graham said. Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has declined the invitation of the committee to testify in its probe into, he added.

Fox News Host Says Gingrich Shouldn’t Be Censored for Speaking About Soros

Sputnik – The former House speaker and now Fox News contributor, Newt Gingrich, claimed on-air that the “Soros-elected, left-wing” were the reason for continuing riots in the United States, triggering unease among the two hosts he was speaking to.

Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner says the hosts on “Outnumbered” should not have interrupted Newt Gingrich when he made controversial statements about George Soros.

Faulkner explained that everybody on Fox News is entitled to speak their mind and deserves respect, adding that Gingrich has always been welcome on the channel.

“Our guest, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is beloved and needed to be allowed to speak with the openness and respect that the show was all about, was interrupted”, Faulkner said. “Do we debate with fire here? Yes. But we must also give each other the space to express ourselves.”

Faulkner also said that they “don’t censor on its show” and that’s what draws viewers every Wednesday.

Gingrich claimed that “progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’ money” and are behind the violence in American cities. His speech made the hosts feel quite uneasy, so they tried to interrupt him, but Gingrich refused to stop, asking if it was prohibited to speak about Soros on the programme. There was an awkward silence for some time before the hosts decided they could move on.

FBI director says antifa is an ideology, not an organization

AP – FBI Director Chris Wray told lawmakers Thursday that antifa is an ideology, not an organization, delivering testimony that puts him at odds with President Donald Trump, who has said he would designate it a terror group.

Hours after the hearing, Trump took to Twitter to chastise his FBI director for his statements on antifa and on Russian election interference, two themes that dominated a congressional hearing on threats to the American homeland.

Referring to antifa, the president wrote: “And I look at them as a bunch of well funded ANARCHISTS & THUGS who are protected because the Comey/Mueller inspired FBI is simply unable, or unwilling, to find their funding source, and allows them to get away with “murder”. LAW & ORDER!”

The Twitter barbs thrust Wray again into a spotlight that he has spent three years trying to avoid after his predecessor, James Comey, became entangled in politics before being ultimately fired. Though Wray said as recently as Thursday that the FBI made unacceptable mistakes during its investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Trump nonetheless has intermittently lashed out at Wray over the pace of fixing those problems and continues to regard his intelligence community with suspicion because of the Russia probe.

Wray did not dispute in his testimony Thursday that antifa activists were a serious concern, saying that antifa was a “real thing” and that the FBI had undertaken “any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists,” including into individuals who identify with antifa.

But, he said, “It’s not a group or an organization. It’s a movement or an ideology.”

Buffalo school teaching students to question nuclear family as part of BLM-integrated curriculum: Tucker

Fox – A public school in Buffalo, N.Y. has integrated Black Lives Matter propaganda into its curriculum for elementary school children, encouraging them to question the importance of the nuclear family, Fox News has learned.

According to several lesson plans obtained by “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the unnamed Buffalo public school has instructed students in the fourth and fifth grades to question the importance of their own family as part of a broader effort to promote a radically left-wing agenda in line with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The lesson plans prepared by the Buffalo Public Schools’ Office of Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Initiatives, instructs teachers to discuss various “guiding principles” with students including “Black Villages,” which they describe as “the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.”

“They are teaching to your kids, that your family should be destroyed,” Tucker Carlson said on his show Thursday. “Why are we allowing this? You know what this is, it’s an all-out war on the most important thing we have, which is the American family.”

At the conclusion of the lesson, students of the fifth grade are asked to complete an assignment responding to a prompt that explores a society without “separate, nuclear family units.”

Teachers are also reportedly encouraged to promote activism, and “Discuss the NFL player Colin Kaepernick who refused to be silent about discrimination against Black people.”

“Another lesson plan explains to second, third and fourth graders “the need for the BLM movement,” Carlson observed. “OK, you might think a Marxist organization that destroys private property and wants to replace parents is a bad thing,  but that’s not what your children are learning. Other lesson plans actually teach children the specifics of the BLM platform which rejects western family structures.

PRE-CRIME: NEW LAW WOULD GIVE AUSTRALIAN AUTHORITIES POWER TO ARREST COVID “CONSPIRACY THEORISTS”

Who police think might commit a crime.

Infowars – A draconian new coronavirus law could give Australian authorities the power to arrest coronavirus “conspiracy theorists” if it’s thought they may commit a crime in the future.

Yes, really.

The new COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) bill, which is being debated in the Victoria State Parliament this week, will give local authorities the power to detain people who refuse to self-isolate as well as “conspiracy theorists” and anyone deemed to be at risk of spreading COVID-19 negligently.

A government spokesman told the Age that the measures “could be applied to conspiracy theorists who refuse to self-isolate or to severely drug-affected or mentally impaired people.”

Those detained will be held in quarantine facilities.

“If there is one thing that terrifies increasingly tyrannical governments, it’s a loss of control of the narrative, which is why the Australian government is getting a jump start on curbing any so-called “conspiracy theorists” daring to spread information that questions the fear-mongering being used to keep Aussie citizens under lock and key,” reports Zero Hedge.

As we have exhaustively documented, Australia has become the most authoritarian state in the developed world when it comes to the draconian enforcement of COVID rules.

Police have the power to enter people’s homes without a warrant and also snatch children. Earlier this month, a pregnant woman was arrested in front of her children for posting about an anti-lockdown protest on Facebook.

Numerous people have been violently arrested for not wearing a face mask on the street, while journalists have also been arrested merely for covering anti-lockdown protests. Street markets have also been raided and shut down by riot police.

Now police merely have to suspect that you could commit a crime in future in order to carry out detentions and arrests.

And there you were thinking the Minority Report was just a dystopian sci-fi movie.

We’re living in it.

VIDEO: POLICE DRAG MAN OUT OF SCHOOL BOARD MEETING FOR NOT WEARING A MASK

“You will have to tase me.”

Infowars – A video out of South Dakota shows a man being dragged by police out of a school board meeting because he is not wearing a mask.

During a discussion about the school district’s mask mandate, local resident Reed Bender refused to wear a mask after being ordered to do so by Superintendent Joe Graves, who subsequently called the police.

Officers attempted to convince Bender to put on a mask but he refused, telling them, “You’re gonna have to drag me out, guys.”

“This is what you are doing, you’re sowing discord within our communities at every level, it’s disgusting,” Bender tells the school board members.

Bender repeats his assertion that the cops will have to drag him out while another attendee comments, “This is completely absurd…this is an embarrassment to our school.”

The cops then try to drag the man out of the library as he puts up resistance.

One of the officers then grabs his taser, to which Bender responds, “You will have to tase me in front of all these people.”

“This is insane,” another attendee comments as Bender is removed from the room.

“Never in my entire career as a superintendent have I had that happen before,” Superintendent Graves said. “The board said there is a masking mandate and everyone in the school building must wear a mask. We gave the gentleman fair warning of that and offered him a mask. He refused, so the board had to enforce the mandate.”

Police say that Bender hasn’t yet been charged with anything but they are still investigating the case.

FOX’S HARRIS FAULKNER CLAIMS “WE DON’T CENSOR” AFTER CENSORING GINGRICH’S SOROS REMARKS

Half-hearted excuse falls flat

Infowars – Fox News host Harris Faulkner responded to critics on Thursday by claiming she never censored former House Speaker New Gingrich during Wednesday’s broadcast of “Outnumbered.”

When Gingrich brought up the commonly reported fact that George Soros has funded the election of District Attorneys all over the country, Faulkner and co-host Melissa Francis reacted bizarrely.

“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” said Francis. “George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation.”

After a long pause where people were likely talking into Faulkner’s ear, she mumbled, “We’re going to move on.”

Now, attempting to address the issue without actually naming George Soros or apologizing, Faulkner is claiming her show never censors its guests.

“We had a little incident yesterday that was not smooth,” she said. “While I was leading that segment we had interruptions, and I sat silently while that played out.”

The Fox host did say Gingrich deserved to be heard, but assured her audience, “We don’t censor on this show.”

US Democratic Senators Unveil $350 Billion Funding Package to Counter China’s Rise

Sputnik – Nearly a dozen US Senate Democrats have sponsored new legislation to fund efforts to counter China’s edge in areas such as manufacturing, technology, and science.

A release from Senator Sherrod Brown’s office revealed that the proposal includes over $350 billion in new funding to synchronize and mobilize all aspects of US national power.

“Sponsored by 11 leading Democrats, the legislation is guided by four pillars: (1) invest in American competitiveness; (2) support American alliances and partners; (3) restore and advance a values-centered foreign policy, and (4) ensure China pays a price for its predatory actions”.

The so-called “America Leads Act”, according to the statement, is needed as a “course correction, after almost four years of destruction under President [Donald] Trump”.

The package aims to make comprehensive investments in US workers, alliances, and diplomacy “to confront the rise of China”.

The proposal also seeks to “reaffirm America’s strong security commitment in the Indo-Pacific and a forward-deployed posture in the region to ensure that all nations can exercise their rights in the region’s international waters”.

In addition, the senators hope to strengthen trade enforcement across a wide range of areas including intellectual property, supply chains, currency manipulation, and counterfeit goods, the release said.

NFL Team Requires Players and Staff to Wear Electronic Tags That Record Who They Meet and Alert Social Distancing Violations

SHFTPlan – New technology is being used to protect professional athletes from COVID-19. This includes at least one NFL team requiring players and staff to wear electronic “SafeZone” tags as seen in the video below.

From NBC News:

Inside look at an NFL team’s new reality amid pandemic (Part 2)

The Cleveland Browns are relying on cutting-edge technology to help keep players safe amid the coronavirus pandemic: ultraviolet lights and helmets fitted with plastic shields.

The problem with testing athletes (and everybody else) seems to be that tests aren’t always accurate.

In regard to the electronic “SafeZone” tags, they emit electromagnetic radiation (aka “Electrosmog”) and exposure can cause symptoms and illnesses some of which can be as serious if not more serious than COVID-19. Too bad that’s not being considered as well.

How many more lives could be saved if Vitamin D had been distributed when the China virus hit?

NaturalNews – The most important statistic concerning the covid-19 pandemic is the mortality rate. When covid-19 outbreaks were first announced, the mortality rate looked grim, as hospital systems relied on ventilators. As viable anti-viral treatments were suppressed (such as hydroxychloroquine), many hospital patients were literally left to die. Even worse: The local, state, and federal public health response did not recommend, let alone distribute, the very substances that strengthen human immunity. Instead, populations around the world were forced to live under arbitrary behavioral controls that did further damage to their stress level and livelihood.

How many more lives could have been saved if something as simple and cheap as Vitamin D was distributed to populations around the world?

Vitamin D keeps patients out of the ICU, shows potential to save lives

A study out of Spain put vitamin D to the test. A total of fifty patients who were hospitalized with covid-19 were given 100 micrograms of vitamin D over the course of a week. On the first day, patients were given 55 mcg of calcifediol, a type of vitamin D that is readily synthesized in the liver. A second and third dose of 27 mcg calcifediol was administered on day three and day seven.

Their outcomes were compared with a control group of 26 hospitalized covid-19 patients who did not receive the vitamin D supplementation. Of the 26 in the control group, half (13 patients) required ICU admission. There were two deaths as a result.

The group of 50 who took the vitamin D should have seen 25 patients admitted to the ICU and up to four fatalities, but there was only one ICU admission, and that person didn’t pass away. There were no life-threatening complications for the group who took vitamin D. They got well faster and 98 percent of the patients didn’t require further medical interventions.

Vitamin D distribution could have saved minorities who are adversely impacted by vitamin D deficiency

Statistically, the covid-19 pandemic adversely affected higher rates of people from the black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. This is because people with a darker skin color are, by default, vitamin D deficient. Their skin does not absorb sunlight as effectively as people with lighter skin tones. People with darker skin need to spend more time in the sunlight, which is required for the synthesis of the vitamin D hormone. Proper distribution of vitamin D supplements to the populations most impacted by vitamin D deficiency could save countless lives and bring down the overall mortality rate of covid-19.

But populations don’t have to wait on the government to solve their deficiencies. Vitamin D is inexpensive and readily available over-the-counter. Sunshine is also readily available, as long as governments do not restrict access to outdoor spaces, parks and beaches – a nightmare reality that has occurred across many parts of the country in 2020.

Outbreaks are made worse when populations do not have access to sufficient sunlight, primarily ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation. In the United Kingdom and in the northern hemisphere, vitamin D deficiency runs rampant and is the driving factor behind a population’s susceptibility to respiratory infection, including but not limited to: covid-19. As the winter months draw near, covid-19 and influenza outbreaks will continue because many populations are living in a dark, artificial environment, cut off from the very essence that makes their immune system strong.

Social distancing and other behavioral controls will not stop viral load. Only a replete immune system will be able to stop viruses from multiplying within the body, stopping the spread. An infectious virus cannot be sterilized from the environment by attempting to control people’s lives.

More importantly, populations must address viral load, and that begins with ensuring that each individual is getting adequate vitamin D and establishing an internal environment that blocks viral attachment, enhances antioxidant protection, reduces mucus and inflammation, promotes alkalinity and a diverse microbiota, increases cellular energy and oxygen production, and mitigates viral replication. When these strategies are prioritized, the mortality rate can be brought down to near zero, and populations will no longer have to live in fear, made to live under arbitrary controls, and forced to be dependent and disillusioned on perpetual use of liability-free vaccination experiments

First Complete At-Home COVID-19 Test Developed

Newsmax – The first complete do-it-yourself COVID-19 test has been created to help consumers diagnose themselves and take appropriate action if needed.

The test was developed by Cellex, a biotech company specializing in diagnostics, and Gauss Surgical, a computer software company. It is the first rapid test for COVID-19 that can be independently performed at home without sending samples to a laboratory for analysis, according to TeleTrader News.

The antigen test, if approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, may mitigate the problems associated with current testing delays by letting people know within minutes if they have the virus so they can self-quarantine immediately, according to Axios. The waiting period for conventional test results can exacerbate the transmission of COVID-19.

Injectable Biochip for SARS-CoV-2 Detection Near FDA Approval

Mercola – The Silicon Valley company, Profusa,1 in partnership with the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA),2 has created an injectable biosensor capable of detecting the presence of an infection in your body.3

In early August 2019, months before COVID-19 became a household word, DARPA granted Profusa additional funding “to develop an early identification system to detect disease outbreaks, biological attacks and pandemics up to three weeks earlier than current methods.”4

As discussed in “Will New COVID Vaccine Make You Transhuman?” we appear to stand at the doorway of a brave new world in which man is increasingly merged with technology and artificial intelligence, and COVID-19 may well be the key that opens that door, in more ways than one.

For starters, many of the COVID-19 vaccines currently being fast-tracked are not conventional vaccines. Their design is aimed at manipulating your own biology, essentially creating genetically modified humans.

Combined with hydrogel biosensors — which do not suffer from rejection as foreign bodies like earlier implants, instead becoming one with your own tissue5— we may also find ourselves permanently connected to the internet-based cloud, for better or worse.

Study: Smoking Increases Risk of Fatal Brain Bleed

Newsmax – Smokers have a significantly raised risk of dying from a bleeding stroke, a new study warns.

For the study, researchers analyzed data from over 16,000 same-sex twin pairs in Finland. The twins were born before 1958 and followed for about 42 years (between 1976 and 2018).

During the follow-up, there were 120 deaths from subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). This is a type of bleeding stroke that occurs under the membrane that covers the brain. The median age at death was about 61.

Compared to nonsmokers, the risk of fatal bleeding in the brain was three times higher among heavy and moderate smokers, and 2.8 times higher among light smokers.

The findings were published Sept. 17 in the journal Stroke.

“Our study provides further evidence about the link between smoking and bleeding in the brain,” co-author Ilari Rautalin said in a journal news release. Rautalin is a sixth-year medical and Ph.D. student at the University of Helsinki in Finland.

Unlike previous research, this study found that high blood pressure, lower levels of physical activity and being female weren’t significant factors in the risk of a fatal brain bleed.

The paper didn’t have data on nonfatal cases. And the researchers couldn’t assess the impact of previous smoking on these brain bleeds, because former smokers and never smokers were combined in the nonsmoking category.

Still, “this long-term study in twins helps to confirm the link between subarachnoid hemorrhage and smoking,” said Dr. Rose Marie Robertson, deputy chief science and medical officer of the American Heart Association (AHA).

“Not smoking, or quitting if you’ve already started, is an essential component of primary prevention,” added Robertson, co-director of the AHA Tobacco Center for Regulatory Science. She was not involved in the study.

A previous study of nearly 80,000 twins in Denmark, Finland and Sweden suggested that external risk factors, such as smoking, have a much greater influence on subarachnoid hemorrhage than genetics.
