2. Humiliated ‘fact-checking’ Snopes suspends co-founder busted for fake news, plagiarism

(Readers of this site have known this for years. Curious that a left wing paper decides they have had enough of his usefulness now. Somewhat like CNN and Cuomo?)

Friday was an extremely bad day for “fact-checkers” everywhere, as one of the media’s most beloved “fact-checkers,” Snopes, was itself publicly fact-checked.

It was fact-checked by BuzzFeed News, which published findings of an investigation showing that Snopes’ head honcho, co-founder David Mikkelson, is a “troll” who’s been blatantly lying to the site’s “millions of readers” about a variety of topics.

“Mikkelson … has long presented himself as the arbiter of truth online, a bulwark in the fight against rumors and fake news. But he has been lying to the site’s tens of millions of readers,” BuzzFeed News reported.

3. Fully vaccinated Southwest flight attendant, 36, dies from COVID-19 nearly two months after testing positive following trip to Hawaii

A fully vaccinated Southwest Airlines flight attendant has died from COVID-19 nearly two months after he tested positive following a work trip to Hawaii.  

Maurice ‘Reggie’ Shepperson, 36, who was based in Las Vegas, died at Henderson Hospital on Tuesday after spending weeks on a ventilator.  

He had checked into the hospital on July 7, weeks after testing positive following his trip to Hawaii in early June.  

Shepperson’s mother said her son had taken every precaution against the virus, including getting fully vaccinated, wearing a mask, washing his hands frequently and sanitizing surfaces.  

He is among a very small fraction of Americans who have died after suffering ‘breakthrough’ coronavirus infections after vaccination.

5. Dennis Prager explains how its not about parties, or even people. Its about leftism and Western Civilization. And he has it right.

Thank you Johnny U. M., Yucki, Richard, PC., Major Tom, George, Don L., and many more who are looking at and contributing evidence to help reassemble reality from the shambles the left has made of it.

    Since he didn’t take Ivermectin, I guess he didn’t take “every precaution against the virus.” I wonder if the hospitals are killing these people intentionally to keep the numbers up.
