2. Long time readers of this site may remember how closely we followed the events surrounding James and his suit against Google. We even went to the trouble of making a Youtube video reading out the entire transcript of his memo to Google which got him fired, even though it was the farthest thing from discriminatory in the leftist sense, and was in fact pushing for more affirmative action to get more women in as engineers.
Damore’s mistake was to deal with the reality of men and women’s psyches. He pointed out that in fact, men and women’s brains DO work differently and that in order to get more women as engineers at Google the company might have to rejigger some aspects of some operations to make them more appealing, or compatible with the female brain.
This of course meant he was breaking the unwritten law which dialectics had put google at that point. One must never say that men and women are different in any way, and to do so, is racist. Even and perhaps especially, because it’s true.
More than two years later, the battle between ex-Google engineer James Damore and the company is over, although we won’t know much about how it ended. Earlier this week, Damore and three other men asked a California court to dismiss the lawsuit, which claimed that the company discriminated against conservative white men. Google also joined their request for dismissal.
As part of the agreement reached with Google, first reported by Bloomberg, Damore and his fellow plaintiffs are barred from saying anything about the matter besides what’s in the court filing, which is not much. Damore’s lawsuit has been one of the most high-profiled fights in Silicon Valley in recent years and has made him a darling of the alt-right and conservative media.
3. This guy is a little over the top. But overall…
‘We didn’t spend 800 years fighting the British ******* Army so you could end up treating us worse.’
The brave spirit of Irish freedom is making a comeback.
This is how you handle Gestapo Gardai ??

(The whole video is available at https://gemmaodoherty.com/videos/ but it takes a little clicking around to find it. But agree with this gentleman or not, we can safely say that the ultra vires actions of this officer and the state in general is costing the public trust across the West. And rightly so. The damage these lock downs are doing may turn out to have a hidden cost none of us really expect.)

The Chinese coronavirus is no longer at epidemic levels in the United Kingdom as the rate of community transmission has fallen, a team of Oxford University experts claim.
A study conducted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in conjunction with Oxford University, Manchester University, and Public Health England (PHE), found that an estimated 136,000 people — 0.24 per cent of adults — are currently infected with the virus.
A surveillance rate of over 40 infected people per 10,000 is required for a disease to be declared an epidemic. The figures from the ONS place the current rate at 24 in 10,000, while a separate study from the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) found that the rate could be as low as 3 in 10,000.
Professor Carl Heneghan and Tom Jefferson, of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at the University of Oxford, said that the low numbers from the RCGP may be attributable to asymptomatic people not getting tested, but added that the overall number of respiratory infections has still dropped dramatically.
6. Trying to keep up with what we are supposed to be afraid of, lets remember this:
This is just plain fear mongering. You know she made this up out of nothing. It is impossible to make such a calculation. Hayhoe is 100% fake. https://t.co/Ujq51WEKBJ

(Canada appears to be a province of China at this point)
In what can only be described as an appalling move, the federal National Research Council of Canada is linking themselves to China to ‘test’ a vaccine in Canada.
As reported by the Globe & Mail, CanSino – a company linked to China’s Academy of Military medical Sciences – will be brought to Canadian soil to test out China’s Ad5-nCoV, the Chinese vaccine candidate.
Making the deal even more absurd, Canadian technology will be used on the vaccine, but even if it works, Canada won’t get any ‘revenue’, with all of it going to China.
According to the report, “Canada’s involvement with Chinese vaccine developers dates to the 2007 signing of an agreement on scientific and technological co-operation. In 2011, the two countries agreed to collaborate on vaccine development. CanSino’s chief executive, Xuefeng Yu, also spent many years studying in Canada and working as an executive at Sanofi Pasteur Inc. He was formerly based in Toronto.”
(Still not aware of any science that allows a vaccine to work against an RNA virus)

10. Justin Trudeau, Chinese Viceroy to Canada, has been found to cherry pick who gets to ask what questions at press conferences.
