1. Exactly where is the science in this please?
Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources announced last week that its employees are required to wear masks at home during Zoom calls. https://t.co/AdoRicH0L1

(It begins to feel that this had nothing to do with disease control since before it even started. Below, leaked footage from Wisconsin City Council)
2. BLM justifies looting in American cities
This is what Black Lives Matter is about. I wonder how rich, white liberals, journalists, and athletes would feel. By this logic, BLM should be able to loot their homes and work places and then, if they so choose, burn them down and no one is allowed to complain. pic.twitter.com/yMu9kLhnHd

On July 29, a 15-year-old Faisal Khan pulled out a pistol and fired multiple shots into 57-year-old Tahir Naseem, inside a courtroom in Peshawar at a bail hearing.
Naseem, a US citizen, died on the spot, onlookers spattered with his blood. He was accused of committing blasphemy, a capital crime in Pakistan.
His killing grabbed global headlines, put a fresh spotlight on Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and drew criticism from abroad, even as many in the country praised the shooter. The United States and human rights groups decried the killing and urged changes to Pakistan’s blasphemy statutes, among the harshest in the world.
Closer to home, Khan is a hero.
He beamed for selfies with lawyers and police days after he was brought to court following his arrest. Thousands hailed him in the streets as a “holy warrior.”
No kidding! The Berlin senator of Turkish origin is actually talking about a ban on alcohol. And this is not supposed to be Islamization in Erdogan’s caliphate also called “Germany” ?
The public broadcaster rbb reports:
Due to the Corona restrictions, pub and bar visitors in Berlin will have to adjust to stricter controls by police and public order offices. This was announced by Berlin’s health senator Dilek Kalayci ( Social Democrats) in the newspaper “Berliner Morgenpost”. Kalayci also said that a ban on alcohol should be considered “if discipline in restaurants does not improve”.
5. Pretty much the ONLY thing we know for certain about Covid 19, is not the number of cases or deaths, what treatments work or don’t work, the benefits of masks or lock downs. No. The one thing we absolutely know to be true for a fact, is that pretty much all political authority lies to us about anything connected to it.
