Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

      Man Claims To Be Robinhood Employee & Says The White House Pressured Halt of GameStop Trading

      Thursday morning, Robinhood, one of the top free trading apps, put restrictions on trading $GME (GameStopCorp.) This action was immediately met with backlash across the internet. One Reddit user, Odin19199, claiming to be an employee of Robinhood, stated that the company was pressured to halt GameStop trading by Sequoia Capital and the White House. These allegations have not been independently confirmed by Breaking911.

      In the post, he alleges that he overheard that “Vladimir, yes founder Vladimir [Tenev], and the C-Suite, received calls from Sequoia Capital and the White House that pressured into closing trading on GME.”

      The user then goes on to state that he has information and documentation regarding the situation that he is planning to provide to Project Veritas and lawyer Glen Greenwald.

      The newly-confirmed Treasury Secretary, Janice Yellen, has financial ties to one of the hedge funds that came to the aid of Melvin Capital, one of the companies that saw large losses after GameStop’s market surge. Yellen’s financial disclosure shows her receiving around $800,000 from Citadel for speaking fees.

      White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, stated on Wednesday that Yellen is ‘monitoring’ the GameStop stock situation.

      New York Attorney General, Letitia James, released a statement Thursday announcing that “we are aware of concerns raised regarding activity on the Robinhood app,” and that “we are reviewing the matter.”

      The Chicago-based hedge fund paid Yellen $292,500 for a speech on Oct. 17, 2019, $180,000 for one on Dec. 3, 2019, and $337,500 to speak at a series of webinars held from Oct. 9-27, 2020.

    Two Canada Post workers in Regina were temporarily suspended earlier this month after they refused to deliver the latest sample edition of the Epoch Times.

    The head of the local CUPW union that represents postal workers said both mail carriers were escorted from the building when they informed their supervisors they were unwilling to deliver the publication. They were suspended without pay for three days.

    According to its sample issue, the Epoch Times was created to “bring honest and uncensored news to people oppressed by deception and tyranny in communist China.”

    John Kasich to CNN’s Lemon: ‘Some Trump supporters are redeemable.’ Lemon: Meh

    Henceforth, the only Kasich image we’ll need. Speaking by remote video to the Democratic National Convention, from an undisclosed location in Ohio. PBS News Hour video

    How charitable! Former Ohio governor and Joe Biden surrogate John Kasich, in an interview with CNN anchor Don Lemon, suggested some Trump supporters “are redeemable.”

    Kasich, a “Republican,” who unsuccessfully ran against former President Trump in 2016 and endorsed Joe Biden in 2020, suggested to Lemon that supporters must confess their sins before being welcomed back into the fold.

    In other words, confess that the Capitol riots were as bad as the media portrays them and the whole event was all Donald Trump’s fault.

    “Honestly, Don, what we have to ask ourselves are, who’s redeemable?” he said. “Who we bring over to say this is — this is just wrong. This never happened this way. And we’ve got to figure out how to talk to some of those people and reach them, Don, and get them back. Some of them are redeemable. I can tell you they are. And you know that some of them are, don’t you? You’ve met them. They’ve gone up to you and said, ‘Lemon, you’re right.’”

  6. Two years ago, I saw a young deer falling down, he kept falling down, his left front leg would buckle. He bedded down a ways up the bluff, on a little level spot. He eventually had trouble getting up, so I took him large amounts of food twice a day. He would lick the snow and stayed there for a couple of weeks. I called him Chester, after the man on the tv show “Gun Smoke”
    Eventually he could get up and he walked throwing his left front leg out in a sideways move. He got better.
    I have not seen Chester, people told me the wolves would get him or the hunters.
    I am sitting about three feet from the window ledge reading, and just a while ago I looked up and there was standing this huge buck, his nose about a foot from the window. He took a step backwards and I realized it was Chester.
    I made him some porridge sandwiches, that he loves and gave some cut up apples.
    He stayed a while, then walked up the bluff and bedded down on his old spot.

    Keep on the sunny side.

    “A fire has broken out at a disused army barracks in the English county of Kent that is being used to house hundreds of asylum seekers after an order was given for residents to self-isolate for 10 days, a refugee crisis charity said on Friday.

    “A fire has broken out and fire engines have been called to Napier Barracks in Folkestone following an upsetting afternoon for the residents. They each received an impersonal letter from Clearsprings, the accommodation provider, saying they would be split into new ‘bubbles’ and would need to self isolate for a further ten days”, the Care4Calais charity said in a press release.

    The barracks has recently been hit by a severe outbreak of COVID-19 that left “one in four people” at the facility infected with the disease, lawmaker Zarah Sultana said this past Tuesday…”

  8. I was just reading the Charter for Ontario that William Davis gave me in the 70s.

    This was when Ontario was a province with a Premier with outstanding leadership.

    Principles Freedom can be sustained only in a society without discrimination based on race, colour, sex or creed. It can best be preserved in a society committed to justice and the rule of law.

    Fairness and equality of opportunity can be guaranteed only by a government prepared to ensure that the power is not used unfairly by any group in society , INCLUDING GOVERNMENT ITSELF.

    Real freedom can be achieved and maintained only when GOVERNMENT is prepared to LIMIT its own growth, POWER and costs.

    Health systems must allow doctors and patients to work together to prevent treat and cure disease.

    All in Ontario share as a common heritage the right to pursue personal fulfillment through their own effort, initiative, commitment and self-reliance.

    We affirm that every citizen of Ontario shares a common right to self-advance,ent, to balanced and STABLE government, to FREEDOM, JUSTICE, EQUITY Zane SECURITY as residents of a Great province which has a key role to play in ADVANCING the INTERESTS of a great nation.

    • When Ontario was the wealth-creation engine of Canada it could have become one of the most prosperous countries in the world. I’m not say it should have, but only that it could have. Such was its natural wealth and industrial capability.

  9. Pelosi calls out armed colleagues as security threats: ‘The enemy is within the House’

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the chamber will likely allocate more money for members of Congress to invest in additional security to protect them from the likes of violent rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 — but also from the “enemy” within the House.

    “We will probably need a supplemental [budget] for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives — a threat that members are concerned about in addition to what is happening outside,” Pelosi said during her weekly news conference Thursday at the Capitol.

    When asked for clarification on what she means about the enemy within, Pelosi specifically called out fellow members of Congress.

  10. Rice: Administration will probe origins of White nationalist violence

    United Press International | Jan 29, 2021 | News | 16

    President Joe Biden’s domestic policy adviser, Susan Rice, said Tuesday that he has ordered an intelligence assessment into White nationalism and that the administration will “craft and implement policies” to address racial equality in America.

    ————————

    In a media briefing, Rice cited the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol building, saying a “comprehensive assessment of the nature of this threat and challenge” to determine the “origins and roots” of violent White nationalism will help the administration determine the proper policy to address it.

    “We have seen and it’s been plain for all Americans on their television sets just how serious a problem we face from nationalists and white supremacists who have demonstrated a willingness to resort to violence in some instances,” she said.

  11. ‘One Last, Giant Grift’: WaPo Op-Ed Says Trump Must NEVER Have Presidential Library
    Hank Berrien
    4-5 minutes

    On Friday, The Washington Post published an essay by its art and architecture critic arguing that former President Donald Trump must never have an official presidential library, and that blocking such a library was an “issue of national security.”

    In the essay, titled, “Trump wants a library. He must never have one,” Philip Kennicott states bluntly, “Trump must never have an official presidential library, and Congress should move quickly to make sure he never will.”

    Bemoaning the fact that the National Archives has already launched the Donald J. Trump Presidential Library website, Kennicott opines that there has been a “larger scam that has become attached to the presidency: the use of presidential libraries and museums to entrench perpetual fundraising and hagiography as a permanent part of every post-presidential career.”

    Earlier, in October, 2020, Bridges, a convert to Islam, came into contact with an FBI online covert employee (OCE) posing as a Muslim supporter of and in contact with the Islamic State. In their communiques, Bridges made clear that his allegiance was to Islam and jihad, not America and its soldiers. According to the criminal complaint against him:

  13. Air raid sirens heard in Tehran as Turkish airline flight diverted to Baku

    Air raid sirens were sounded in and around parts of Iran’s capital Tehran, according to multiple local reports and activists.

    Iran International news outlet reported that some Iranian activists on social media were sharing videos of the siren being heard for several minutes in western Tehran.

    According to Aurora Intel, the air raid sirens were heard in the Shahr Ara and Marzdaran areas in western Tehran.

    A Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul to Tehran circled above Iran’s capital before being diverted away. A Flight Radar 24 path of the airplane showed it changed its flight path to Baku during the same time as reports of the sirens were heard.

    “Disruption in the sound system of an organization was the reason for the siren heard in western Tehran,” the semi-official ISNA news agency quoted Hamidreza Goudarzi, Tehran Governor’s Deputy for Security, as saying. Goudarzi did not specify which organization.

    “There are no security problems and people should not worry,” Goudarzi added.

    Joe Biden has called for “unity” and “healing”. And nobody knows as much about healing as Joe whose wife has a doctorate in education from the university that hosts his Biden Institute and the Beau Biden Foundation which was charging $3K for lessons on preventing online child sex grooming even as Hunter’s laptop with the Foundation’s sticker allegedly showed him doing it.

    Except maybe Joe’s brother who took out $650,000 in personal loans from a company that bankrupted local hospitals while trading on his brother’s name and connections to his campaign.

    Law enforcement in Washington state on Thursday cleared a homeless camp that was dubbed an “occupation,” after the far-left Antifa network called for members to descend on the camp and confront officers.

    Bellingham Mayor Seth Fleetwood gave permission to police to clear the camp a day earlier than was previously announced because of information indicating calls to action were made to activists in the Pacific Northwest to try to stop the clearance.

    “We took urgent, emergency action this morning outside Bellingham City Hall to protect the safety of all. … We acted today to reduce the risk of further injury, violence, and vandalism by those who are using the plight of our community’s most vulnerable to further their own agenda,” Fleetwood told reporters during a press conference.

  16. Thousands of troops and DOD workers refusing COVID vaccine as cases mount
    by Jamie McIntyre, Senior Writer | | January 29, 2021 07:20 AM
    20-25 minutes

    REFUSENIKS IN THE RANKS: Normally, members of the military don’t have a lot of choice when it comes to getting required vaccinations, but because the COVID-19 vaccine was approved by the Food and Drug Administration under an emergency use authorization, it cannot be mandated. And despite rising case numbers — 138,763 in the military, with more than 90,000 recovered, almost 1,300 hospitalized, and 17 dead — many troops are declining the vaccine.

    “In general, the trends are very similar to what we’re seeing in the U.S. population as a whole, that the older population has been more willing to take the vaccine,” said Air Force Brig. Gen. Paul Friedrichs during a Pentagon briefing yesterday. “The younger population has been a bit more hesitant about it, and, you know, I think that’s understandable. I think as we go forward and we educate our population about the safety of the vaccine, we hope and trust that that will allay some of the concerns.”

  17. Texas Governor Orders Agencies to Sue Biden Administration for Climate Actions That ‘Kill Jobs’
    By Tom Ozimek

    Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday vowed to oppose what he called the Biden administration’s bid to destroy jobs with its volley of actions targeting the oil and gas industry.

    Abbott signed an executive order during a press conference in Odessa on Thursday, which directed all state agencies to sue the Biden administration for any federal actions that threaten the Lone Star state’s energy sector.

    “Texas is going to protect the oil and gas industry from any type of hostile attack launched from Washington D.C.,” Abbott said. “President Biden’s embrace of the green new deal is a job killer in Texas. It also takes a wrecking ball to the energy independence that Texas has been able to provide to the United States of America and Texas is not going to stand idly by and watch the Biden administration kill jobs in Midland, in Odessa or any other place across the entire region,” he added.

    Abbott’s order (pdf) came on the heels of a series of executive actions taken by President Joe Biden in the name of fighting “climate change.” These include the decision to revoke authorization for the Keystone pipeline, the decision to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, and a moratorium on issuing new oil and gas leases on federal land and waters.

    Cruz responded to a tweet from Ocasio-Cortez where she had called out a financial company that had blocked “retail investors from purchasing stock while hedge funds are freely able to trade the stock as they see fit.”

    Cruz simply responded that he “fully agree[d]” with what Ocasio-Cortez said.

    Rather than doing anything to secure COVID-19 vaccines for the two million Palestinians living under their rule in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian terror groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad are continuing to do what they have proven themselves experts at doing: prepare for war against Israel and endanger the lives of innocent civilians, Israelis and Palestinians alike. Pictured: A spokesman for Gaza-based terrorist groups speaks at a press conference during joint military exercises led by Hamas, in Gaza City on December 29, 2020. (Photo by Mohammed Abed/AFP via Getty Images)

    As many in the international community express more and more concern about the economic and humanitarian crisis in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, the Palestinian terror groups there seem less and less concerned about improving the living conditions of their people.

    These groups, specifically Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), are not doing anything to secure vaccines against COVID-19 for the two million Palestinians living under their rule in the Gaza Strip.
