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.

    • The CDC recommendations cover everyone who is at greater risk than the norm, but not the larger low-risk cohort, while Biden says he wants 98% of the population injected. Why is Biden not following CDC guidelines?

        • PC: don’t think about it. Ask the Holy Spirit to protect you. And think about the effects of other booster shots; your system has been too hard at work.

          I’ve been trying to reach my cousin in Rhode Island. She went for her booster shot. I phoned so many times over a period of four days, no answer. She took the jabs because she has OCPD. I’m worried.

          My cousin always changes her welcoming message every morning. It’s the same one for the past four days. Cheers and enjoy life.

        • So happy, I spoke with my cousin tonight. She’s doing well.
          Although she is a very strong pro-vax gal, she decided not to take the booster.
          Too much agitprop, it disturbs her. So, she’s sticking to distancing and she wears the mask in closed areas.
          IMHO, distancing solves the problem as is with Influenza.
          Utmost respect.

    New York’s new, default governor, Kathy Hochul, has ordered the firing of all of the state’s unvaccinated health workers at midnight on 27 September.

    About 16% of New York’s health workers are reportedly unvaccinated, amounting to “thousands” of workers who will be terminated and not eligible to continue working on Tuesday.

    This is thought by many observers to be counterproductive and indeed illogical, in that it reduces health care capacity during a pandemic.

      AUSTRALIA: Well-Known Indigenous Leader Dies 6 Days After Receiving Vaccine In A Televised Event

      A well-known leader in the Australian aboriginal community has died 6 days after receiving his second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

      Bevan Costello, an indigenous elder, got his second shot on September 9th in a special event to promote COVID-19 vaccine acceptance among indigenous people. The ‘Elder’ died 6 days later on Wednesday, September 15th of a sudden heart attack.

      His death has sent shockwaves through his community.

      Bevan Costello, who is an elder of the Cherbourg aboriginal community in Queensland, received his shot while being interviewed by Australia’s ABC NEWS. “I feel more confident now that I’m fully vaccinated that if I come into contact with COVID I should be OK because I’m a diabetic.” Bevan said. “A lot of my people have been hesitant because of a misunderstanding of the information, mostly on social media.”

      His sudden death on Wednesday September 15th, 6 days after his second shot, has created more hesitancy among the indigenous people to get vaccinated. The South Burnett and Cherbourg indigenous communities were shocked upon hearing the tragic news. “I know that he will be remembered with absolute fondness by so many people in Queensland—not only in Cherbourg, Murgon and the South Burnett district but across the wider Indigenous community in Queensland,” a community member said.

      • reuters – Pfizer submits data for COVID-19 vaccine use in younger kids

        Sept 28 (Reuters) – Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) and BioNTech SE on Tuesday submitted initial trial data for their COVID-19 vaccine in 5-11 year olds and said they would make a formal request to U.S. regulators for emergency use in the coming weeks.

        The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said earlier this month it would look to complete its data review for this age group as quickly as possible, likely in a matter of weeks rather than months. That could mean an authorization of the shot for children by the end of October, sources have told Reuters.

        The companies, however, have yet to start the official process for authorization, which could slow the decision. According to the Wall Street Journal, the FDA may not make its decision until sometime between Halloween and Thanksgiving, citing a person familiar with the matter.

        A Pfizer spokesperson said the company expects to start and complete its application very soon.

        A decision on the vaccine’s use in younger children is eagerly awaited by millions of Americans as coronavirus infections have soared in children to the highest point in early September, according to data from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

        The vaccine, which is already authorized for 12 to 15-year- olds and fully approved for ages 16 and up, induced a strong immune response in the target age group in a 2,268-participant clinical trial, the companies said on Sept. 20. read more

        The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was authorized for the 12-15 age group roughly a month after the companies filed for authorization. If the same timeline is followed for this application, younger children could start receiving their shots as soon as late October.

        A rapid authorization could help mitigate a POTENTIAL surge of cases this fall, with schools already open nationwide.

        While kids are less susceptible to severe COVID-19, they can spread the virus to others, including vulnerable populations that are more at risk of severe illness.

        The companies said they plan to submit the data to the European Medicines Agency and other regulatory authorities. They also plan to submit data from the full late-stage trial for scientific peer-reviewed publication.

        The FDA was not immediately available to comment.

        Data from the companies’ trial showed the two-shot vaccine generated an immune response in children that matched what was previously observed in 16-to-25 year olds. The safety profile was also comparable to the older age group, Pfizer said.

        The drugmakers are also testing the vaccine in children aged 2-to-5 and those aged 6 months-to-2 years, with data expected in the fourth quarter.

        Moderna’s (MRNA.O) COVID-19 vaccine is not yet authorized for use in adolescents in the United States, while it has gained authorization for that age group in Europe.

        Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been linked by regulators to rare cases of heart inflammation in adolescents and young adults, particularly young men. Pfizer said no instances of heart inflammation were seen in the trial participants.

      reuters – YouTube deletes RT’s German channels over COVID misinformation

      BERLIN, Sept 28 (Reuters) – Alphabet Inc’s YouTube deleted Russian state-backed broadcaster RT’s German-language channels on Tuesday, saying it had breached its COVID misinformation policy.

      “YouTube has always had clear community guidelines that outline what is allowed on the platform,” said a spokesperson.

      Initially RT’s German channel was issued a strike for uploading content that violated YouTube’s COVID misinformation policy, resulting in a suspension of posting rights on the platform for a week.

      During that suspension, the Russian broadcaster tried to use another channel to circumvent the ban on uploading.

      “As a result both channels were terminated for breaking YouTube Terms of Service,” said the spokesperson.

      All videos uploaded to YouTube must comply with its guidelines which sets up the type of content allowed to be on the platform.


      YouTube Deletes RT’s Two German-Language Channels Over COVID-19 ‘Misinformation’

      YouTube, the video-sharing platform owned by U.S. giant Google, has deleted two German-language channels managed by Russia’s state-owned media company RT.

      Dinara Toktosunova, who runs RT DE, one of the two channels, first made the announcement on Telegram on September 28.

      Google said it deleted RT DE and Der Fehlende Part because they had published what it called “misinformation” about COVID-19.

      The tech giant said it warned RT DE that it was violating its rules and temporarily blocked its ability to publish.

      When RT tried to evade the ban by publishing the material on Der Fehlende Part, it deleted both of them, YouTube spokesperson told Germany’s Deutsche Welle agency.

      YouTube told Deutsche Pravda that it does not allow content on its platform that “contradicts local health authorities’ or the World Health Organization’s (WHO) medical information about COVID-19.”

      The United States and Europe have previously accused Russia of spreading false information about COVID-19 in an attempt to undermine confidence in vaccines.

      RT Editor In Chief Margarita Simonyan criticized YouTube’s decision and called on the Russian government to ban German state media in Russia.

    • IRAQ – Karbala – inside the shrine – pilgrims touching and kissing the tomb of Imam Husain

      from wikipedia ---------------------------------------------------

      The grave of Husayn ibn Ali is found in the middle of the precinct, it is called the Rawdah ("garden") and it has several doors. The most famous one is called Al-Qiblah or Bab al-Zah’ab. On the right hand side of the entrance is the tomb of Habib ibn Madhahir al-Asadi, a friend and companion of Husayn since their childhood and a casualty of the Battle of Karbala.

      Within the shrine of Husayn can also be found a grave of all the 72 martyrs of Karbala’. They were buried in a mass grave which was then covered with soil to the ground level. This mass grave is at the foot of Husayn's grave. As well, beside Husayn's grave are the graves of his two sons: ‘Ali al-Akbar and the six-month old, ‘Ali al-Asghar.

      Hundreds of thousands of Muslim pilgrims on Tuesday converged on the Iraqi city of Karbala to commemorate the Arbaeen.

    • KARBALA – Scientific evidence suggests Arbaeen pilgrimage caused tons of fish to die in Karbala rivers

      Footage filmed on Tuesday shows heaps of rubbish and rotting fish floating in the rivers of Hindiya and Rashidiya inside the city of Karbala, as well as in Lake Milh in the west of the city.

      The phenomenon of water pollution and fish deaths is repeated every year in Karbala, with crowds heading to visit the shrine of Imam Hussein in what is known as the Arbaeen pilgrimage.

      “As a preliminary diagnosis, and through autopsy, it was found that there is environmental pollution due to the excess of stale water dumped during the religious Arbaeen al-Hussein ceremony,” said Doctor Afkar Abbas, a member of Karbala Veterinary Department.

      “The overcrowding happening as a result of the number of visitors that exceeds the capacity of the Karbala Governorate leads to stale water being pumped into the drains and rivers, which leads to the death of fish,” added Abbas.


      SOT, Ali Mousa, Pilgrimage support staff (Arabic): “Trash and stale water are being dumped into the river in Karbala Governorate, which has negative consequences in the future. There must be good cooperation for every visit in the Governorate to succeed. Unfortunately, this problem reoccurs during visits every year because there is no cooperation between the pilgrimage processions and service departments in the city. Preserving the environment is the duty of each resident and whoever caters for the pilgrims.”

  4. SEPTEMBER 28, 2021 Hague city councilor suspected of preparing attack on Rutte released from custody
    The Hague city councilor Arnoud van Doorn was detained on Sunday morning on “suspicion of preparing an assassination attempt” on caretaker Prime Minister Mark Rutte, AD reports. Van Doorn was held overnight and released on Monday evening after being questioned. The investigation is still ongoing.
    The Public Prosecution Service (OM) confirmed to Omroep West that the suspicion against Van Doorn is “preparing an assassination attempt” with the possible target being Mark Rutte.
    According to AD, Van Doorn, the city councilor for Partij van de Eenheid, was spotted walking through The Hague on Sunday morning. Rutte was nearby at the time and his security officers thought Van Doorn was behaving suspiciously. Rutte’s security detail was recently increased due to signals that the prime minister was being targeted by organized crime.
    Van Doorn’s lawyer Anis Boumanjal confirmed to that he had been held for showing suspicious behavior around the Prime Minsiter. Boumanjal told AD that Van Doorn was held “without a reasonable suspicion of guilt”, and was therefore wrongfully detained.
    The 55-year-old city councilor will also appear in court on Tuesday for inciting violence with anti-Semitic tweets he posted a few years ago, according to Omroep West. The court will rule on Tuesday.
    This was also not the first time Van Doorn came into contact with the Dutch authorities. In 2015 he was sentenced on appeal to 240 hours of community service and a 3 month long suspended prison sentence for, among other things, selling weed to minors, leaking confidential documents, and weapons possession. In 2018, a fellow city councilor in The Hague took her own life shortly after posting a video to social media saying she was abducted and gang raped and that Van Doorn was behind it.

    The top military officer in the U.S., Gen. Mark Milley, has reportedly been in talks with his Russian counterpart concerning a possible offer from the Kremlin set to aid the U.S. in its response to the mounting terror threats throughout Afghanistan.

    Reportedly, the Biden administration received an offer from the Kremlin concerning an opportunity to let the U.S. military operate out of Russian bases within the Middle East in order to react to multiple terror threats in the wake of the U.S. fully withdrawing its military presence from Afghanistan, as reported by The Wall Street Journal. As the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley was in contact with Russian Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov concerning the offer at the request of Old Uncle Joe himself and the U.S. National Security Council.

  6. Mass Student Loan Forgiveness Is Already Happening

    9-12 minutes

    While progressive Democrats in Congress have yet to pass a universal student loan forgiveness bill, the Department of Education has nevertheless forgiven billions of dollars in federal student loan debt since Joe Biden became president. And even without new statutory authority, the federal government is slated to forgive increasingly more student loan debt in the future, thanks to the Biden administration’s expansive interpretation of the Education Department’s existing authorities, as well as a law signed by George W. Bush way back in 2007 that mandates loan forgiveness for certain borrowers.

    Let’s start with the federal student loan debt forgiveness for low-income and disabled borrowers, which the Department of Education says has erased “$9.5 billion, affecting over 563,000 borrowers,” since January 1, 2021. That sum breaks down roughly as follows:
