1. Something strange happened at the White House at around 2:20 AM ET
3. To understand how the Democrat claim that Trump incited anything is pure invention:
For those who want to understand how the concept of "incitement" is being so distorted, please read this brilliant Supreme Court ruling rejecting the State of Mississippi's attempt to hold NAACP leaders liable for "inciting" violence by boycott supportershttps://t.co/c1ePHbUa7c

4. This is over FIVE HOURS stream about what appears to be a full military lock down of DC, including radio coms etc. I have no idea if any of this is true. Posting it so that people in the area can deny it. Presumably if it is true, people in the area may have difficulty confirming it. I have literally only listened to and watched the first few minutes.
America’s borders with Canada and Mexico will remain closed for another month.
The Department of Homeland Security announced via tweet Tuesday that the U.S., Canada and Mexico have agreed to keep the borders closed through at least Feb. 21 as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to worsen.
“In order to continue to prevent the spread of #COVID, the US, Mexico, Canada will extend the restrictions on non-essential travel through Feb. 21,” the DHS tweet said. “We are working closely with Mexico & Canada to keep essential trade & travel open while also protecting our citizens from the virus.”
Tuesday’s border closure extension is the final one issued by the Trump administration. In a subsequent tweet, DHS noted that it could be subject to further review by President-elect Joe Biden and his pick to head the agency, Alejandro Mayorkas.
Fifty-five people in the United States have died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, according to reports submitted to a federal system.
Deaths have occurred among people receiving both the Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines, according to the reports.
The reporting system, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), is a federal database. The system is passive, meaning reports aren’t automatically collected and must be filed. VAERS reports can be filed by anyone, including health care providers, patients, or family members.
VAERS reports “often lack details and sometimes can have information that contains errors,” according to the reporting system’s website. Still, reports on VAERS represent “only a small fraction of actual adverse events,” the site states, though underreporting is believed to be less common for serious events.
7. Australians including health professionals speak out about the measures in place in Victoria
(Is there something special about Norway which makes this mRNA treatment more dangerous? Or do they just have more honest reporting)
Twenty-three people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with 13 of those deaths — all nursing home patients — apparently related to the side effects of the shots, health officials said.
Common reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, said in a Friday statement.
All 13 were nursing home patients and at least 80 years old. While officials aren’t expressing serious concern, they are adjusting their guidance on who should receive the vaccine.
On the heels of the breach of the U.S. Capitol, Big Tech companies have swiftly censored the President, the emerging social media platform Parler was effectively shut down, and there are growing calls for no-fly lists.
Does the assault on the Capitol warrant such a response?
“We’re living in a gigantic lie that is reminiscent of the Reichstag fire,” argues talk show host Dennis Prager, founder of Prager University.

There is a great deal more to do today. Much more to come. Thank you all for your observant and keen eyes for what matters.
